The Chicago Police Department launched mandatory training designed to help officers de-escalate conflicts, including situations involving the use of force and mental health issues.

The program, which Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is scheduled to discuss Monday evening, is among several department reforms following the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The black teenager was shot 16 times in 2014 by a white Chicago police officer. Graphic squad-car video of the shooting was released last year, prompting citywide protests, police leadership changes and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation.

The training at the Chicago Police Academy, which is in its second week, was developed with a panel of national policing and mental health experts. It uses live scenarios and exercises to help officers better assess how to respond to complex and tense situations. Some of the tactics include using slower and calmer approaches when possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This de-escalation training should be going on nationally, right now.

More than 800 immigrants mistakenly granted citizenship

The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department's inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren't caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot begin to articulate just how safe and protected this screw-up makes me feel; if THIS is the level of "professionalism" we can expect, collectively, from the Department of Homeland Security, and the other involved agencies, then all the people in all the critical departments need to be collectively fired, and people who can actually do the job, hired!!

Russia Condemns Obama’s Decision to Conduct Illegal Air Strikes against Syrian Forces, Washington’s Objective was to Protect ISIS Terrorists

“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.

“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.

“The beginning of work of the Joint Implementation Group was supposed to be September 19. So if the US wanted to conduct an effective strike on Al-Nusra or ISIS, in Deir ez-Zor or anywhere else, they could wait two more days and coordinate with our military and be sure that they are striking the right people.”

“Instead they chose to conduct this reckless operation,”

“So it may well be, one has to conclude, that the airstrike has been conducted in order to derail the operation of the Joint Implementation Group and actually prevent it from being set in motion,” …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that such US/Israeli/Australian attacks against Syrian forces, and perhaps - soon - against Russian forces in Syria- will be happening as well.

The goal of these attacks will be to goad Russia into a military response against US military assets, and the moment that happens, we will be looking at war with Russia.

Also, as reported at yesterday:

The ISIS launched attacks on the Syrian army positions in Deir Ezzor only 7 minutes after the US-led coalition’s airstrikes on Saturday, a military source said, adding that the air and ground assault were highly coordinated, According to FNA report. The source said after the coalition’s pounding of the Syrian army near Deir Ezzor airbase, the ISIS could take full control of al-Tharda mountain and then Deir Ezzor military base, adding that the army and national defense forces deployed near the airbase immediately won it back from the terrorists by launching a counterattack. Noting that Deir Ezzor is now almost in tranquility and no change has occurred in the military map of the region, the source said by attacking the Syrian army positions, the US seeks to prevent military operations to break the terrorists’ siege on the city.

And I have to ask myself; how could this not be true, if it only took ISIS 7 minutes after the US-lead coalition bombing attacks to attack this position?!?

Native Americans Document Hundreds of Pipeline Leaks and Oil Spills Kept Secret by North Dakota Government

North Dakota’s oil frenzy is leaking like a sieve. You most likely have not heard about it because fracking companies, pipeline owners, and state officials have been keeping information about hundreds of oil spills secret for years.

According to Natives News, After a huge spill of more than 20,000 barrels on a wheat farm was hushed up for 11 days, the Associated press discovered the extent of the years-long cover up:

Records obtained by the AP show that so far this year, North Dakota has recorded 139 pipeline leaks that spilled a total of 735 barrels of oil. In 2012, there were 153 pipeline leaks that spilled 495 barrels of oil, data shows.

A little more than half of the spills companies reported to North Dakota occurred “on-site,” where a well is connected to a pipeline, and most were fewer than 10 barrels. The remainder of the spills occurred along the state’s labyrinth of pipelines.

America, the Helpless ‘Superpower’

On a late summer Saturday night in the Chelsea district of New York City an explosion caused by an IED that injured 29 people shook the nation: a second bomb was discovered a few blocks from the first site and disabled. This was preceded by a pipe bomb going off at the site of a benefit run for families of US Marines in Seaside, New Jersey, a mere ninety minutes away: multiple devices were found at the same location and were disabled. Injuries were prevented only because the event was delayed due to the size of the crowd; five thousand people would have been in proximity otherwise. To top it off, a person invoking Allah stabbed eight people at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota – albeit not before first asking them if they were Muslim. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the stabbing spree, dubbing the perpetrator a “soldier of Islam.”

Imagine you are a visitor from Mars, watching all this from a very great height. Surely two aspects of this are striking:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I must speculate: these come at a time when the accusations regarding "pay for play" political appointments reach all the way up to the Oval Office, and the US military has bombed Syrian troops with white phosphorous weapons, which is a war crime.

Right now, things feel to me just as they did right after the Boston Marathon bombings, which - again - happened under President Obama's watch. And one wonders: what was going on at that time which was critically suppressed because of coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings?!?

As reported by CNN that day,

2. UKRAINE CRISIS Now what? A Ukrainian government deadline for pro-Russian protesters to lay down their arms and leave occupied buildings passed early today with no sign of it being heeded in the eastern cities of Donetsk and Slaviansk. The protesters were given until 2 a.m. ET to disarm or face a "full-scale anti-terrorist operation" by its armed forces. But the deadline passed with no movement at the regional government building in Donetsk, which has been occupied for more than a week. Previous deadlines have passed with no consequence. NATO says Russian armed forces are massing on Ukraine's eastern border and could invade, while Moscow says they are merely carrying out military exercises.

(Remember: the US/Soros organization and the IMF generated the putsch in Ukraine which unseated Yanukovich and anointed Poroshenko as President of Ukraine. Poroshenko's presidency continues, two years on, to be going very badly for the US government)

The Veteran's Administration scandal was about to break:

The Veterans Health Administration scandal of 2014 is a reported pattern of negligence in the treatment of United States military veterans. Critics charged that patients at the VHA hospitals had not met the target of getting an appointment within 14 days. In some hospitals, the staff falsified appointment records to appear to meet the 14-day target. Some patients died while they were on the waiting list; reports differ about whether they died because of the delay. Many VHA managers were fired as a result. Defenders agreed that it was unacceptable to falsify data, but the 14-day target was unrealistic in understaffed facilities like Phoenix, and most private insurers didn't meet a 14-day target either. By most measures, the VHA system provides "excellent care at low cost," wrote Paul Krugman, who believes that the attack on the VHA system are motivated by conservatives who want to discredit a government program that works well. Conservative legislators have proposed privatizing the VHA, and legislative reforms will make it easier for veterans to go to private doctors. CNN reported on April 30, 2014 that at least 40 United States Armed Forces veterans died while waiting for care at the Phoenix, Arizona, Veterans Health Administration facilities. By June 5, 2014, Veterans Affairs internal investigations had identified 35 veterans who had died while waiting for care in the Phoenix VHA system.[1] An investigation of delays in treatment throughout the Veterans Health Administration system is being conducted by the Veterans Affairs Office of the Inspector General,[2][3][4] and the House has passed legislation to fund a $1 million criminal investigation by the Justice Department.[5] On May 16, 2014, the Veterans Health Administration's top health official, Dr. Robert Petzel, retired early at the request of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki.[6][7] On May 30, 2014, Secretary Shinseki resigned from office amid the fallout from the controversy.[8][9

Is the US government above recruiting "patsies" like the Tsarnaev brothers, then keep them held in suspension until a "major distraction" is needed, then place them into play at just the right moment, to keep people from focusing on critically important issues?!?

The short answer is, no.

But the "new normal", at least inside this country, is that the United States government is thoroughly impotent to protect any American from any kind of chaos; may have, in fact, created the chaos, and is very happy with the situation as it is, because fear deflects focused, clear thinking.

"There's No Turning Back!" Swedish TV Ad Says Swedes Must Accept Multiculturalism

Swedes need to give up their identity and *they* must integrate with migrants because "being Swedish needs to be about more than skin color and place of birth."

In this new TV advert from Swedish charity organization "IM," Swedes are called on to create "Det Nya Landet," or "The New Country," which appears to just be Africa with some Muslims and one Asian dude.

The ad says the onus is not just on "new Swedes who need to integrate," but "everyone needs to be integrated, established Swedes too," meaning old people.

The House Intelligence Committee’s Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Snowden Report

Late yesterday afternoon the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a three-page executive summary (four, if we count the splendid cover photo) of its two-year inquiry into Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency (NSA) disclosures. On first reading, I described it as an “aggressively dishonest” piece of work.

With a day or so to reflect on it, I believe it’s worse than that. The report is not only one-sided, not only incurious, not only contemptuous of fact.

It is trifling.

After twenty-five months of labor, the committee’s “comprehensive review” of an immensely complex subject weighs in at thirty-six pages. (None of which we may read, because it “must remain classified.”) I have graded college term papers that long. It is one more dispiriting commentary on the state of legislative oversight that the committee’s twenty-two members, Republican and Democratic, were unanimous in signing their names.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Snowden did should start a conversation among Americans as to just how their country is being governed, and that is very critical that we have this conversation.

ISIS Overruns Syrian Army Base After US Bombings

In the defense of the Deir Ezzor Airport, the Syrian military has long depended on an army base in Jebel Tharda to repel ISIS advances. That base has been lost this weekend, after a disastrous series of US-led airstrikes killed a large number of Syrian troops defending the base, and ISIS quickly overran what was left.

For over 20 minutes, the coalition warplanes attacked the base. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the attack killed at least 83 Syrian troops and wounded 120 others. The US Central Command claimed they thought the base belonged to ISIS.

It does now. With the forces decimated by the US attack, ISIS quickly overran the base. Syrian state media claimed an ongoing effort to recover the site, but it does not appear to have been successful yet, as ISIS managed to shoot down a Syrian warplane, flying out of Deir Ezzor Airport, over Jebel Tharda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though this is just the outcome the US and Israel wanted to see happen here.

Payback? Syrian Armed Forces Reportedly Shoot Down US Spy Drone Over Deir ez-Zor

A US Air Force surveillance aircraft was reportedly downed on Sunday in the province of Deir ez-Zor, where American jets bombed Syrian forces encircled by Daesh militants a day earlier, killing 62 personnel.

According to Press TV, the Syrian Army brought down a UAV that was spotted hovering over mountains in the Jabal Therdeh area in the east of the province. AMN new agency, presenting itself a source of news from the Arabian world, specified that shots were fired by the Syrian Arab Army's 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Tank Division, though noting that drone managed to leave the Syrian airspace.

Massive prison strike takes place in memory of Attica riot, with 20,000 inmates across 24 states pledging to 'end slave labor for prisoners'

America is currently undergoing the biggest prison strike in history, with prisoners in 40-50 prisons across 25 states participating in the organized action, it has been reported.

Using secret cell phones, social media and people on the outside, 'at least' 20,000 prisoners have downed tools in protest against free prison labor, The Intercept said.

'This is a call to action against slavery in America,' organizers on the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) said in a statement. 'Forty-five years after Attica, the waves of change are returning to America’s prisons.'

'This September we hope to coordinate and generalize these protests,' the statement continued, 'to build them into a single tidal shift that the American prison system cannot ignore or withstand.'

The strike began on September 9, the 45th anniversary of the Attica prison riot, in which prisoners demanded political rights and better living conditions.That riot saw 43 dead, 33 of whom were inmates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in in October 2014:

Prison labor in the United States is referred to as insourcing. Under the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), employers receive a tax credit of $2,400 for every work-release inmate they employ as a reward for hiring “risky target groups.” The workers are not only cheap labor, but they are considered easier to control. They also tend to be African-American males. Companies are free to avoid providing benefits like health insurance or sick days. They also don’t need to worry about unions, demands for vacation time, raises or family issues. According to the Left Business Observer, “the federal prison industry produces 100 percent of all military helmets, war supplies and other equipment. The workers supply 98 percent of the entire market for equipment assembly services; 93 percent of paints and paintbrushes; 92 percent of stove assembly; 46 percent of body armor; 36 percent of home appliances; 30 percent of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21 percent of office furniture. Airplane parts, medical supplies and much more: prisoners are even raising seeing-eye dogs for blind people.” With all of that productivity, the inmates make about 90 cents to $4 a day. Here are some of the biggest corporations to use such practices, but there are hundreds more:

So, Let's "name and shame", shall we?!? Again, from, These companies benefiting from prison slave labor include, but are not limited to:

1. Whole Foods
2. Mc Donald's
3. Wendy's
4. Wal-Mart
5. Starbuck's
6. Victoria's Secret
7. Fidelity Investments
8. JC Penney
9. Kmart
9. American Airlines

This is a nasty practice, and should be halted immediately. And of course, it is getting nearly any coverage in the United States, because most people don't really want to know where the things they buy come from, particularly if it is made or produced by prison labor.

Obama says a low turnout from black voters in upcoming presidential election would be 'a personal insult' to his legacy

President Barack Obama said Saturday night he will take it as a 'personal insult' if the African-American community fails to turn out for the presidential election and encouraged black voters to support Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Obama delivered his final keynote address to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, symbolically passing the torch to the person he hopes will succeed him next year.

Clinton, his former secretary of state, was honored for becoming the first female presidential nominee of a major party.

Obama said his name may not be on the ballot, but issues of importance to the black community were, including justice, good schools and ending mass incarceration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are moments when I have to conclude that President Obama lives in a parallel reality from that with which so many African-Americans have to contend, 24/7.

As reported at in March of this year:

With President Obama’s gas tank now less than an eighth full, it’s amazing where he has taken black Americans. Mainly, it’s been a long ride in reverse. Even liberal black broadcaster Tavis Smiley has criticized Obama for this. As Smiley told HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski, “Sadly — and it pains me to say this — over the last decade, black folk, in the era of Obama, have lost ground in every major economic category.” Smiley is almost completely correct. Based on the Obama administration’s own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics — with one key exception — black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009. During Obama’s tenure, the percentage of black Americans struggling below the poverty line has advanced, according to the most recent Census Bureau data, from 25.8 in 2009 to 26.2 in 2014 — up 1.6 percent. Real median income among black households during those years, according to the Census Bureau, sank from $35,954 to $35,398 — down 1.5 percent. RELATED: Obama’s Legacy Is Already Collapsing The number of black food-stamp participants exploded across that time frame from 7,393,000 to 11,699,000, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports — up 58.2 percent. Also, from Obama’s oath of office through the fourth quarter of 2015, the percentage of black Americans who own homes foundered from 46.1 percent to 41.9 percent, according to the Census — down 9.1 percent.

And those issues of "...justice, good schools and ending mass incarceration."?!?

In the words of Tony Soprano, for African Americans, "Fuggetaboutit!!", at least under President Obama's watch. Justice for African Americans, unless one has the (past) wealth of an OJ Simpson simply does not exist ; inner city schools resemble minimum security prisons, complete with guards; and the prisons themselves are overloaded to the max.

Earlier today the Syrian Arab Army had announced that 1,000 fresh soldiers arrived in Deir Ezzor to liberate it from ISIS.

The U.S. planes came from Erbil in the Kurdish separatist region of Iraq.

The Syrian troops were holding positions on Jabal Tharda, a mountain that overlooks Deir Ezzor's airport. The mountain is now fully under Islamic State control. With this IS has firecontrol over the airport and the Deir Ezzor garrison as well as more than 150,000 civilians living under government protection are thereby cut off from supplies and any further reinforcements. Government forces have launched a counterattack to regain the vital position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get my head around the reality that the US is working with Israeli in supporting Isis and Al Qaeda in Syria: any questions?!?!?

And that performance by U.S. Ambassador Power at the UN on Saturday at the emergency meeting called by Russia over the incident was extraordinarily cringeworthy, to say the least, and engineered to try to get a rise out of the Russian Ambassador, Churkin; the only thing that happened was, at one point, he walked out of the room.

And if Power was going to elaborate on atrocities, how about the atrocities committed by the US/Israeli enabled and funded Isis and Al Qaeda?!?

Pharmaceutical companies are fuelling the rise of superbugs by manufacturing drugs in factories that leak industrial waste, says a new report which calls on them to radically improve their supply chains.

Factories in China and India – where the majority of the world’s antibiotics are produced – are releasing untreated waste fluid containing active ingredients into surrounding areas, highlights the report by a coalition of environmental and public health organisations.

Ingredients used in antibiotics get into the local soil and water systems, leading to bacteria in the environment becoming resistant to the drugs. They are able to exchange genetic material with other nearby germs, spreading antibiotic resistance around the world, the report claims.

The bad news for Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf keep getting worse. As we reported last week, Stumpf is expected to testify before Congress this week in response to allegations that the bank allegedly opened over two million phony accounts without customers’ approval. The Senate Banking Committee has summoned John Stumpf, chief executive of Wells Fargo & Co., to testify about the bank’s alleged sales-practices misdeeds after it agreed last week to pay a $185 million fine and enter into an enforcement action with regulators. Mr. Stumpf told The Wall Street Journal in an interview Tuesday that he is prepared to “share Wells Fargo’s story” at the hearing.
His testimony will be the first from a big-bank chief under fire since 2012. Back then, the committee brought in J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. chief James Dimon to explain his bank’s “London whale” trading losses, in which the company lost more than $6 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GOOD! Banks engaging in this kind of fraudulent behaviour should be sued out of existence!

The number of eggs in one basket with this thing is insane.

Via: ABC:

Six states — Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and North Carolina — are facing possible gas shortages after a pipeline spill, officials said.

The states have all declared states of emergency, citing concerns about “fuel supply disruptions” and “disruptions of gasoline” in the wake of the Colonial Pipeline spill.

The governor of North Carolina declared the state of emergency to “help ensure that there will be adequate supplies of fuel across the state and prevent excessive fuel pricing.”

Prices on futures contracts for wholesale gasoline rose about 2 percent Friday to $1.46 a gallon after rising 5 percent on Thursday.

Long lines have quickly amassed at gas stations in the six states, and social media users took to their accounts to document the chaos and dwindling gasoline supply, in some cases. Below, images from Tennessee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at

Spill history[edit] Early on September 2, 1970, residents of Jacksonville, Maryland, detected gasoline odors and noticed gasoline in a small creek flowing beneath a nearby road. Because fumes were still present in the late afternoon of September 2, a resident notified Colonial at 6:19 p.m. about the situation. Colonial, which had a 30-inch-diameter pipeline situated about 1,700 feet east of the point where the creek passed under the road, shut down the Dorsey Junction, Maryland, pump station (the initial pump station for this section of the pipeline) at 6:34 p.m. About 12 hours later, on the morning of September 3, an explosion and fire occurred in a ditch in which contractor personnel for Colonial were manually digging to further expose the pipeline and catch gasoline trickling from the ground. Five persons were injured, none fatally. The leak point was found four days later. The failure resulted in a release of 30,186 gallons (718 barrels) of gasoline and kerosene.[9] At 9:51 p.m. on December 19, 1991, Colonial's Line 2, a 36-inch-diameter petroleum products pipeline, ruptured about 2.8 miles downstream of the company's Simpsonville, South Carolina, pump station. The rupture allowed more than 500,000 gallons (13,100 barrels) of Diesel fuel to flow into Durbin Creek, causing environmental damage that affected 26 miles of waterways, including the Enoree River, which flows through Sumter National Forest. The spill also forced Clinton and Whitmire, South Carolina, to use alternative water supplies.[10] On Sunday, March 28, 1993 at 8:48 a.m., a pressurized 36-inch-diameter (910 mm) petroleum product pipeline owned and operated by Colonial Pipeline Company ruptured near Herndon, Virginia. The rupture created a geyser that sprayed Diesel fuel over 75 feet (23 m) into the air, coating overhead power lines and adjacent trees, and misting adjacent Virginia Electric & Power Company buildings. The Diesel fuel spewed from the rupture into an adjacent storm water management pond and flowed overland and through a network of storm sewer pipes before reaching Sugarland Run Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River. In October 1994, after heavy rainfall in the Houston area, failures of eight pipelines occurred with damage to 29 others. Two of the failures included Colonial Pipeline lines. The failures occurred at a crossing of the San Jacinto river. The river, which normally flows at 2.5 feet above sea level, crested at 28 feet above sea level on October 21. The river caused major soil erosion. Colonial's 40-inch gasoline pipeline failed on October 20 at 8:31 a.m. and by 9:51 a.m. explosions and fires erupted on the river. Colonial's 36-inch (Diesel) pipeline ruptured about 2 p.m. on the same day, although it had previously been temporarily out of service and that limited the amount of the spill.[11] In 1996, a 36-inch diameter Colonial pipeline ruptured at the Reedy River, near Fork Shoals, South Carolina, June 26. The ruptured pipeline released about 957,600 US gallons (3,625,000 L) of fuel oil into the Reedy River and surrounding areas. The spill polluted a 34-mile (55 km) stretch of the Reedy River, causing significant environmental damage. Floating oil extended about 23 miles (37 km) down the river. Approximately 35,000 fish were killed, along with other aquatic organisms and wildlife. The estimated cost to Colonial Pipeline for cleanup and settlement with the State of South Carolina was $20.5 million. No one was injured in the accident. The pipeline was operating at reduced pressure due to known corrosion issues, but pipeline operator confusion led to an accidental return to normal pressure in that pipeline section, causing the rupture.[12][13][14] In 1997 On May 30, Colonial Pipeline spilled approximately 18,900 US gallons (72,000 L) of gasoline, some of which entered an unnamed creek and its adjoining shoreline in the Bear Creek watershed near Athens, Georgia. During the spill, a vapor cloud of gasoline formed, causing several Colonial employees to flee for safety. This spill resulted from a calculation error related to a regular procedure. No one checked the calculations, nor did Colonial have a procedure in place to check such calculations.[12] Due to seven different spills on Colonial Pipeline in four years, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fined Colonial $34 million on April 1, 2003.[15] On Wednesday, October 3, 2012, Colonial Pipeline shut down line 19 and 20 in Chattanooga, Tennessee due to reports of gasoline odors. It was reported that about 500 gallons of gasoline may have been released.[16] The line carrying gasoline was repaired and the distillate line, which carries Diesel fuel, jet fuel and other products, was inspected and found to be undamaged. Both lines were restarted two days later on October 5, 2012.[17] On Friday, September 9, 2016, a leak was detected in Shelby County, Alabama, spilling an estimated 336,000 US gallons (160,000 L) of summer-grade gasoline, requiring a partial shutdown of the pipeline and threatening fuel shortages in the southeastern United States.[18][19]

Forgive me, but does anyone see a pattern here?!?

This company is estimated to have an annual revenue of around 326 million dollars, US.

Colonial Pipeline Revenue

Leaks like this are a result of sloppy maintenance; wherever the money was going, it hasn't been going into preventative measures which could have stopped this before it became a crisis of such monumental proportions.

Computers from China and Russia tried to attack Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to never-released emails from the Denver company that set up and maintained the system.

The bombings are an obvious distraction so that the corporate media doesn't have to report on the revelation that pay-for-play went right up to the White House itself, or the US 'accidental' bombing of Syrian troops with white phosphorus. But the bombings play right into the Trump campaign issue of controlled borders which is why the authorities were pushing "no foreign connection" right from the start. Only now they have had to back off that spin and admit their prime suspect is an immigrant.

I doubt that any of this was accidental. The US is clearly still commited to the regime change policy which already killed over 400,000 Syrians and led to the destabilization of the entire region, including the EU.

In looking through the comments on this article, it is very gratifying to see that my fellow Americans are on to the racist, genocidal actions of our illegitimate US government; which does NOT exist to serve "We the People", but rather, to serve the interests of the Zionists who succeeded in hijacking our government and morphing it into a privately-owned, for-profit CORPORATION.

.01% criminals CAN’T surrender without admission of killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. Consider Truth & Reconciliation as our best wedge to divide the truly-evil from those ready to reclaim their hearts

An Emperor’s New Clothes event is coming. As We the Informed consider strategic options, it’s important for those aware to know:

the .01% criminals who war and poverty-murder annually in the millions, harm billions, and loot trillions will never do anything other than attempt to bullshit their way onward in rogue state empire.

They won’t surrender ever, because they can’t without acknowledging lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, intentional policy of poverty to fear-monger humans into being grateful “at least I have a job,” and only lying through owned and controlled criminally-complicit corporate media.

Julian Assange Drops Bombshell Involving Murder on Hillary Clinton

The following article continues to cover a topic that many in the alternative media have tried to cover (myself included), but it’s a topic that our absurdly biased mainstream media refuses to cover, because they are bought and paid for by the Democrat Party. The issue I am talking about yet again, is how 67 former associates of the Clinton’s have wound up dead after becoming adversaries of the Clinton’s.

Let’s be clear: This is not a myth, and this is not a “conspiracy theory.” The names of the deceased are all listed below, starting with the six most recent deaths over the last seven weeks. I assure you their families don’t take their deaths as lightly as the mainstream media does. The articles below detail the mysterious deaths of the former Clinton associates, followed by a video from AMTV covering the information from the articles listed that all deal with the 67 former Clinton associates now dead.

Cover-Up: That Sinkhole in Florida Is Far Worse Than Officials Are Admitting

By now, you may have heard some murmurs about another sinkhole in Florida, and that it might be leaking radioactive particles into some body of water or another.

The information out there is vague. Sinkholes are not an uncommon phenomenon in Florida. It doesn’t seem like a huge deal, the way the media is brushing it off. “Oh, just another sinkhole.”


The sinkhole is enormous and it has leaked 215,000 gallons of radioactive, contaminated water into the state’s main drinking water supply. What’s more, they’ve known this has been occurring since early August, and much like every other freakin’ crisis they are supposedly “managing,” the EPA has kept mum on this, as has the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)

FBI’s Fake ‘Investigation’ Of Hillary’s Emails

The FBI’s ‘investigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s State Department email operation was fake in three major ways:

1: The FBI chose to ‘investigate’ the most difficult-to-prove charges, not the easiest-to-prove ones (which are the six laws that she clearly violated, simply by her privatization and destruction of State Department records, and which collectively would entail a maximum prison sentence of 73 years). The famous judge Jed Rakoff has accurately and succinctly said that, in the American criminal ‘justice’ system, since 1980 and especially after 2000, and most especially after 2010, “the prosecutor has all the power. The Supreme Court’s suggestion that a plea bargain is a fair and voluntary contractual arrangement between two relatively equal parties is a total myth. …

CNN’s Jake Tapper Edits out Hillary Clinton’s ‘Bombings’ Remark

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on State of the Union on Sunday morning about the supposed contrast between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in their responses to the explosions Saturday in New York, editing out Clinton’s reference to “bombings” to create a false distinction.

Tapper cited Trump referring to a “bomb” in New York, then played a clip of Clinton criticizing him for saying that — leaving out Clinton’s reference, seconds before, to what she called “bombings.”

U.S. Blasts Russia for Calling Emergency U.N. Meeting Over Syria Bombing

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power tonight blasted Russia for calling an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council in response to a U.S.-led coalition airstrike that mistakenly killed over 60 Syrian regime troops, and wounded 100 more, according to numbers provided by the Russian Defense Ministry.

Speaking at the U.N headquarters in New York, Power said "even by Russia's standards, tonight's stunt, a stunt replete with moralism and grand-standing is uniquely cynical and hypocritical."

Media Outraged After Trump Tricks Them To Cover Endorsements From Military Heroes

The media showed up to the presidential ballroom of the new Trump International Hotel on Friday morning expecting Donald Trump to take questions about whether he still questions President Obama’s birthplace.

Instead, they got more than a half hour of a variety of military heroes — generals, medal of honor recipients and a gold star wife — expressing support for the Republican nominee. And it all aired live on the cable news networks.

Before the event, Trump tweeted: “I am now going to the brand new Trump International, Hotel D.C. for a major statement.” That was interpreted by the press to mean he was going to address “birther” questions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good for Trump! But as you can see in the days since, the corporate media has redoubled their efforts to attack him and shove Hillary down all of our throats!

Syria: No “Dusty Boy” Outrage for 7 yr old Haider, Sniped by NATO Terrorists in Idlib Village of Foua

On the 15th September, 7 year old Haider Ammar Al Hamoud, was shot through the stomach by an Ahrar Al Sham sniper, the US backed terrorist group besieging the Idlib villages of Kafarya and Foua. Haider was ignored by western media.

His life-threatening injury did not merit any outcry from human rights organisations or the NATO-aligned media who ignore the deaths and injuries of tens of thousands of children in Syria because it does not serve their agenda to demonize the Syrian President, Bashar al Assad or the national armed forces.

Zionists plant “hate speech” on professor – then call the police

The entire incident appears to have been orchestrated (with the possible complicity of Facebook) to smear Professor Tony Hall, who had nothing to do with the offensive image, which was posted by FaceBook user “Glen Davidson” as a comment on a story at Hall’s FB page. Facebook’s initial refusal to remove the image, which gave B’nai Brith the traction it needed to create a scandal deceptively targeting Professor Hall, must be seen as suspicious, given that the image clearly meets FaceBook’s definition of sanctionable hate speech.

Explosive fireball rattles Chelsea street injuring 29, secondary pressure cooking device found blocks away

A thunderous explosion rocked a Chelsea street Saturday night — injuring at least 29 people, blasting out windows and sending scores of panicked pedestrians running for their lives, cops and witnesses said.

The ground-shaking detonation on W. 23rd St. between Sixth and Seventh Aves. was “an intentional act,” Mayor de Blasio said at the scene, adding that the investigation is in its early stages.

“There is no evidence at this point of a terror connection,” the mayor said of the incident, which took place at about 8:30 p.m.

A second device, a pressure cooker with wires and a cell phone attached to it, was found in a white garbage bag four blocks away on W. 27th St., sources said.

Hillary’s Sicko Relationship… With the Fed

Hillary Clinton apparently believes that there are four branches of government, not three and that the fourth branch – the Sacred Fed – should never be criticized by any of the other three. It’s OK for President Obama to criticize the Supreme Court during a state-of-the-union address; and for congress and the executive branch to engage in verbal sparring on a daily basis; but no president (let alone a lowly congressman) should ever make a negative comment about the Sacred Fed, according to the Hillary Doctrine.

FBI grilled over handling of Clinton investigation

As lawmakers continued to probe Hillary Clinton’s private email use, the aide who set up the service declined to appear before the House committee. FBI officials had to be given a summons to produce documents on the investigation.

On Tuesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee summoned contractors and former State Department officials who set up and maintained Clinton’s email servers and mobile devices. However, the key Clinton aide, Bryan Pagliano, did not show up for the hearing, pleading Fifth Amendment protections against self-incrimination.

The afternoon before, the committee dressed down FBI’s Acting Assistant Director for Congressional Affairs Jason Herring, who was at pains to explain his absence from a major meeting last week and the bureau’s reluctance to hand over unredacted investigation documents.

US & US-controlled forces haven't fulfilled any Syria ceasefire deal obligations - Russian Army

The US is still reluctant to take measures to force rebels under its control to implement the Syrian ceasefire, Russia’s Defense Ministry said, adding that if things do not change, Washington will be the sole side responsible for the failure of the truce.

After five days of the ceasefire, it has to be noted that only the Russian and Syrian sides have been fully implementing their commitments. On its own initiative, Russia prolonged the cessation of hostilities for 48 hours, and yesterday it was extended for another 72 hours,” senior Russian General Staff official, Viktor Poznikhir, said at a briefing in Moscow.

But, according to Poznikhir, it is very different on the American side as “the US and the so-called moderate groups under their control didn’t fulfill a single commitment undertaken in the framework of the Geneva arrangements.”

Alabama, Tennessee, & Georgia Declare States Of Emergency As Gas Shortages Loom After Pipeline Leak

As Native Americans protesters face arrest in North Dakota for blocking the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, TheAntiMedia's Carey Wedler reports a gasoline pipeline spill is currently unfolding in the South. The leak has prompted Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal to declare states of emergency.

The Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Houston to New York, began leaking on September 9, spilling 250,000 gallons of gasoline, or 6,000 barrels. The pipeline was built in 1962, and the current leak in Helena, Alabama, is the largest one Colonial Pipeline has experienced in 20 years, Reuters noted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Also, as reported this morning at

This whole situation keeps getting worse and worse. It seems to be growing by the day. When Colonial Pipeline originally announced the leak, it was reported that a mere 1,000 barrels of gas had leaked, or said another way, approximately 45,000 gallons. It was then increased to 250,000 gallons – more than a 5-fold increase. Now it has reached more than an 8-fold increase from the original estimate. Do they actually know how much damage has been done and do they know how much gas has leaked out? The Sept. 9 break has leaked 6,000 barrels (approximately 250,000 gallons) of fuel into Shelby County, Alabama, the operator estimated, up from its original estimation of 1,000 barrels. The cause of the leak is currently unclear. Source The more I dig into this gas pipeline leak situation the worse it gets. As we reported yesterday the Colonial Pipeline that pumps gasoline from Houston, Tx to southern New York state became damaged on Friday September 9, 2016. Major news sources didn’t begin reporting this incident until Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and national news services first reported on it beginning Friday September 16, 2016 a full week later. Somewhere between regional news and national news coverage of a 250,000 gallon leak in south central Alabama the governors of Alabama and Georgia announce there is a state of emergency. The leak is outside Birmingham, AL and the gas would have some area to cover to reach Georgia. So far this whole situation is beginning to smell funny and it’s not just the gas fumes.

To our readers and listeners in the affected areas; please make sure that your car and truck tanks get filled soon, because there is a distinct possibility that your local gas stations may well be out of gas before you get there.

Also, make sure you have potable water; storable food; extra medications; and off-grid power available, if possible. The fix for this leak may turn out to be a really time-intensive mess.

Gov. Kasich Visits Obama at White House for TPP Push Meeting

He lost badly in the Republican presidential primary election to now-nominee Donald Trump, refused to attend the Republican National convention in the state where he is governor, and now John Kasich is visiting President Barack Obama in the White House to help Obama pass the highly controversial trade agreement, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
“We now have a unique opportunity, again to put country in front of politics,” Kasich said during a White House press briefing along with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed who also attended the meeting. “The two nations that most vociferously oppose this agreement are China…” he continued, also mentioning Vladimir Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to John Kasich: no sir, this treaty does NOT put country in front of politics; it puts corporations WAY in front of the citizens of this country!

As reported at in May 2016:

So the fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected. This is bizarre stuff, folks, but welcome to the world of international trade deals. From Ryan Grim’s article the day Fast Track was passed, about the amendment in question: That measure would bar governments considered to be complicit in human trafficking from receiving the economic benefits of a fast-tracked trade deal. Menendez, the author of the provision, has described it as a human rights protection that will prevent U.S. workers from competing with modern-day slave labor. The administration has pushed against the provision, saying it would prevent Malaysia from participating in the deal, and eliminate incentives for the country to upgrade its human trafficking enforcement. Human rights advocates strongly support the language that passed the Senate on Friday. The president argues that if the U.S. doesn’t cut deals with these partner countries, China will, to U.S. disadvantage. The State Department’s human trafficking analysis of Malaysia describes the country as “a destination and, to a lesser extent, a source and transit country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and women and children subjected to sex trafficking.” The department cites forced labor problems in Malaysia’s palm oil industry, and nonprofit groups have noted similar abuses in the Malaysian electronics industry. The State Department report says Malaysian ‘public officials... may profit from trafficking.’ The President does not want an anti-slavery provision in what he calls the “most progressive trade deal of all time” because it would keep a country noted for its egregious slave trade out of the treaty? I have to admit this bothers me just a little. Okay, a massive amount. We’re not going to object to slavery because a country that openly engages in it might trade more with China than with us? Doesn’t this kind of blow up the whole “most progressive trade agreement in history” thing?

In fact, will the approval of such a treaty by Congress indicate that it, too ,is just FINE with child and slave labor in this country, in order to compete with corporations in countries already doing this to lower their bottom line?!?

Is the approval of this treaty setting the stage, and creating the legal precedent, for the return of child and slave labor in this country?!?

Congressional approval of this treaty may well be opening a door to a very sordid place from American history I think very few Americans would want to, willingly, revisit.

Congressional representatives, you have been duly warned; if you want to keep your seats in Congress, do not ratify this treaty, period, end of discussion!!

Clinton Foundation, State Dept aided $10 million Haiti earthquake scam

While Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton helped pave the way for a Clinton Foundation donor to receive $10 million from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a federal agency that operates under the guidance of the State Department, to build houses in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.

The project turned out to be a scam, where 500 homes were not built and $10 million was lost. The man, Claudio Osorio, is now serving 12 years, according to a report by Judicial Watch.

Claudio Osorio had hosted a fundraiser for Hillary at his Star Island mansion. He was a Clinton Foundation donor, contributing between $10,000 and $50,000 to the organization, according to Alana Goodman of the Free Beacon. In addition, Osorio had hired Clinton’s 2008 finance director Jonathan Mantz to lobby OPIC for the loan request.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary lies; she scams; she steals; and is pathologically incapable of taking personal responsibility for ANYTHING when she is absolutely, incontrovertibly, wrong.

And the Democrats got stuck with her, because she is a deep-state warmonger, and part of the narcopracy, which has governed this country for far too long.

Yes, I will agree that Trump does, occasionally, come off like a blunt instrument. But on the plus side, he is not bought, is not a career politician, and does seem to have some reasonable ideas about getting the US economy back on track.

US Renews Sanctions and Keeps Blockade on Cuba

U.S. President Barack Obama renewed on Tuesday for another year the Trading with the Enemy Act, extending the economic blockade originally imposed on Cuba more than 50 years ago.

“I hereby determine that the continuation for one year of the exercise of those authorities with respect to Cuba is in the national interest of the United States,” Obama said in a statement.

The restrictions will remain in effect until Sept. 14, 2017.

In Dec. 2014, Obama announced the normalization of relations with Cuba after more than 50 years of hostilities. The two countries reopened their respective embassies in July 2015, but the blockade remains in effect.

The law maintains the economic embargo on the island, which ultimately can only be lifted by the U.S. Congress.

President John F. Kennedy first imposed the economic blockade against Cuba in 1962. It has since been renewed every year by the following nine presidents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell?!?

How in the name of Sam Hill can you alleged that you are "normalizing" relations with another country you are still blockading economically?!?

Western Media Credibility In Free Fall Collapse

The latest from the Gallup Poll is that only 32% of Americans trust the print and TV media to tell the truth.

Republicans, 18 to 49 year old Americans, and independents trust the media even less, with trust rates of 14%, 26%, and 30%.

The only group that can produce a majority that still trusts the media are Democrats with a 51% trust rate in print and TV reporting. The next highest trust rate is Americans over 50 years of age with a trust rate of 38 percent.

It is not difficult to see why trust in the media has collapsed. The corrupt Clinton regime, which we might be on the verge of repeating, allowed a somewhat diverse and independent media to be 90% acquired by six mega-corporations. The result was the disappearance of independence in reporting and opinion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would very emphatically challenge Dr. Roberts on that last bit; this is why people, hungry for the truth, are flocking to independent media sites like WRH!! :-)

The most sensitive classified information leaked and possibly obtained by foreign intelligence services included ultra-secret information on U.S. drone strikes, according to American intelligence officials.

Clinton Foundation CEO Admits To Pay-For-Play: "No Question" That "Courtesy Appointments" Were Made

Yesterday, the CEO of the Clinton Foundation, Donna Shalala, went on MSNBC and openly admitted to engaging in "pay-for-play" activities saying there is "no question" that Foundation donors received "courtesy appointments" during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State. Somehow, Shalala would like for us to believe that so long as appointees weren't put in a position to impact policy decisions then there is no real issue. I guess we should just ignore that taxpayers are funding the salaries of those appointees and paying for their government-related travel all over the world while Hillary gets to accrue "political capital" and her Foundation gets to continue raking in the donations?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Donna Shalala: under Clinton's watch, the US government became a government for sale, and to the highest bidder, under the Clintons' "pay to play" scheme.

And any government's money was just fine, no matter what they did to the citizens of their own country,even countries which included:

chemically castrating, jailing, and executing their LGBTQ communities


permitting the brutal, barbaric practice of female genital mutilation

Sorry, Ms. Shalala: these are the facts.

Are you going to tell me that Hillary Clinton "didn't know" these practices were going on in many of the Middle Eastern and Northern African from which the Clinton Foundation gladly accepted donations?!?

Or would you give me the most likely, honest answer, that being she did know, but didn't give a damn.

Oh...silence at this question, right?!?

DHS accused of sitting on damning border report as immigration issue drives presidential race

Federal lawmakers seeking to pinpoint the number of illegal immigrants who successfully sneak across the southern border ordered up a report from the Department of Homeland Security, but the agency refuses to release it and instead cites a misleading statistic that overstates the number who are nabbed, sources told Fox News.

DHS denied it is holding back the report, but sources say it was completed in November and that it shows roughly half of adults who attempt to cross the border make it - approximately 250,000 in total.

But that number is at odds with DHS’ official estimates. The agency claims authorities catch 80 percent of adults trying to sneak in, but critics say the figure is padded to make it appear border security is more effective than it really is.

Deutsche Bank to fight $14 billion demand from U.S. authorities

Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) said it would fight a $14 billion demand from the U.S. Department of Justice to settle claims it missold mortgage-backed securities, a shock bill that raises questions about the future of Germany's largest lender.

The claim against Deutsche, which is likely to trigger several months of talks, far exceeds the bank's expectations that the DoJ would be looking for a figure of only up to 3 billion euros ($3.4 billion).

The demand adds to the problems facing Deutsche Bank's Chief Executive John Cryan, a Briton who has been in the job for a year.

The bank only scraped through European stress tests in July and has warned it may need deeper cost cuts to turn itself around after revenue fell sharply in the second quarter due to challenging markets and low interest rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any yet, if in fact these allegations prove true (and I do not doubt for a second that they are), there are no criminal indictments against any of the US Deutsche Bank executives who signed off on these business practices?!?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Obama Administration simply lies about everything, or withholds evidence when the information doesn't suit their narrative; this is why you cannot believe anything in this administration says, ever.

And perhaps the most ironic statement comes further down in the article with the following remark:

"“It erodes the trust as to whether the administration is being honest with the American people about what the threat is,” said Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., who serves on the Committee on Homeland Security and chairs the Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee.

Representative McSally, apparently, you have not received the memo: the American people do not trust the American government on ANYTHING, and it is a status which the US government has earned, by the lies, the corruption, and the double-dealing in which it indulges every day, 24/7

The Mainstream Media Bet the Farm on Hillary--and Lost

The MSM has forsaken its duty in a democracy and is a disgrace to investigative, unbiased journalism.

Sep 16 09:10


The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency announced this week it is seeking proposals for its Aerial Dragnet program, a new initiative that seeks to monitor drones flying below 1,000 feet in large cities.

The program seeks to map small drones in urban terrain using innovative technologies that would provide persistent, wide-area surveillance, the agency said in a statement.

While Aerial Dragnet's focus is on protecting military troops in overseas urban settings, the system could also find civilian applications to help protect U.S. metropolitan areas from drone-enabled terrorist threats.

The need for a comprehensive tracking system has increased as off-the-shelf drones become less expensive, easier to fly and more adaptable to terrorist and military needs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, DARPA is looking at this for US urban surveillance?!?

And since when have the protections afforded by the Constitution and Bill of Rights been "chucked" for what is known as "Code Napoleon Law", where a suspect is automatically considered guilty before proven innocent?!?

I frankly do not remember that having happened, at least in terms of the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And what about the potential danger of small drones, and the capability of arming them?!?

As reported in in June of last year:

“We’re seeing capabilities that were previously the monopoly of major military powers are now accessible…to non-state actors, even individuals,” said Kelley Sayler. She’s an associate fellow at Center for a New American Security and author of a report out this morning, “A World of Proliferated Drones.” (CNAS provided us a copy in advance). “There’s been a lot of discussion around town, particularly as relates to drones in the national security space about high-end drones,” Sayler told me. “We didn’t really see there being discussion on the range of systems that are available…particularly given the availability of low-end systems, hobbyist drones, even commercial drones.” The biggest danger in the medium term: swarming technology. As drones get not only smarter but cheaper, an enterprising adversary could buy a bunch and release them all at once, with the drones using insect-like artificial intelligence to converge on their target. Lots of little threats carrying lots of little bombs can add up quickly. “Particularly if you’re looking at systems that can truly navigate autonomously, using those systems en masse is going to enable you to neutralize a much larger target,” Sayler said, “[and] it’s going to be more difficult to defend against because some of the lower end solutions like shooting the thing out with a shotgun might not necessarily be feasible.” “Drones will enable airborne IEDs [improvised explosive devices] that can actively seek out US forces, rather than passively lying in wait,” Sayler wrote in the report. “Indeed, low-cost drones may lead to a paradigm shift in ground warfare for the United States, ending more than a half-century…in which US ground forces have not had to fear attacks from the air.”

So the question I want to ask DARPA is as follows: since when have my brother and sister Americans, and peaceful legal immigrants become "the bad guys", in desperate need of surveillance, or perhaps, extrajudicial assassinations, as are used in Afghanistan and Iraq?!?

To say that I am profoundly disappointed in this kind of thinking by my government, is like saying that the Titanic hit a little ice!

Straw-Powell Emails Prove War Criminals Get Away With Anything - Galloway

George Galloway has slammed former Labor MP and Iraq invasion supporter Jack Straw, after a number of emails were leaked.

Mr. Straw had sent out numerous emails to former Secretary of State Colin Powell on how the Brexit vote had taken the shine away from the Chilcot report. Several emails were exchanged between the pair from July 4 and August 3, in which Powell replies to Straw's email stating that the Chilcot report had not reached the US media.

Egyptian state media claims Isis is 'made up' and 9/11 was carried out by West to justify war on terror

A columnist for a state-run newspaper in Egypt has suggested the US invented Isis and set up the 9/11 attacks to justify its military interventions in the Middle East.

“Is it possible to believe the official version, from the US government, of the events of 11 September 2001?” wrote journalist Noha Al-Sharnoubi in Al-Ahram, a major national Egyptian newspaper owned by the government.

Ms Al-Sharnoubi said the World Trade Centre and Pentagon attacks could have been premeditated to "justify the war on terror” in her column, published on 23 August.

Facebook And Israel Officially Announce Collaboration To Censor Social Media Content

By Whitney Webb

Following Facebook’s censorship controversy over a world famous photograph of the Vietnam War, Facebook has agreed to “work together” with Israel’s government to censor content Israeli officials deem to be improper. Facebook officially announced the “cooperative” arrangement after a meeting took place between Israeli government ministers and top Facebook officials on September 11th. The Israeli government’s frenzied push to monitor and censor Facebook content it deems inappropriate follows the viral success of BDS, or Boycott, Divest, Sanctions, a global non-violent movement that works to expose Israeli human rights violations...

FBI Director: US Could Be Retaliating Against Russia Secretly

Speaking today at an event in Washington DC, FBI Director James Comey rejected the idea that the US was not doing anything about “Russian cyber threats” and allegations of hacks by Russia against US interests, saying that the lack of public response doesn’t mean the US isn’t doing anything.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course Russia, which knows they are not the hackers that embarrassed the DNC, will view any cyber-actions by the FBI as offensive provocations!

New Era: Hillary Loses Control of ‘Net Narrative

Her campaign recently bashed conservative/libertarian publishing group Breitbart and in a speech she directly attacked one of the most prominent alternative media groups, Alex Jones and his Infowars.

Cuban is expressing irritation at a single topic, Hillary’s health, but the larger issue is even more important:

Gradually elite propaganda is being undermined by ‘Net information watched by more and more people. Additionally, this information is obviously seen as credible or the audience would be shrinking not growing.

The influence of alternative ‘Net media is becoming overwhelming.

Violent Clashes Break Out Between Locals And Refugees In German Town

If Angela Merkel has been waiting for just the right moment when she can unleash the Bundeswehr to "pacify" the unruly public, she may have an opening. According to Deutsche Welle, in the small town of Bautzen in the state of Saxony, a second night of violent clashes broke out between residents and migrants.

An 18-year-old migrant reportedly suffered stab wounds in the clashes. The ambulance taking him to hospital was subsequently attacked by extremists, who threw stones at it. A second ambulance had to be called to take the man to hospital.

The mayor of Bautzen, Alexander Ahrens, said that he denounced the clashes in his town. "I strongly denounce this violence and would like to stress that I do so regardless of who may have started it," Ahrens said. Cited by DW, Ahrens told dpa that the level of violence in the town had reached a new level. "Bautzen cannot become a playground for violent right-wing radicals," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I very much fear, because of these immigration surges, that Europe itself is just on the keening edge of an horrific civil war, between residents and immigrants.

Oh, and to how many of those immigrants to Germany are actually employable?!? As reported in this morning:

While it sounded like a great plan, it doesn't really work that well if new migrants fail to find jobs and become economically productive members of society which, according to Reuters, is exactly what is happening. Apparently, German companies have only been able to find jobs for about 100 of the 1 million migrants that have recently found their way into the country. Many of the companies say a lack of German-language skills, the inability of most refugees to prove any qualifications, and uncertainty about their permission to stay in the country mean there is little they can do in the short term. A survey by Reuters of the 30 companies in Germany's DAX stock market index found they could point to just 63 refugee hires in total. Several of the 26 firms who responded said they considered it discriminatory to ask about applicants' migration history, so they did not know whether they employed refugees or how many. Of the 63 hires, 50 are employed by Deutsche Post DHL, which said it applied a "pragmatic approach" and deployed the refugees to sort and deliver letters and parcels. "Given that around 80 percent of asylum seekers are not highly qualified and may not yet have a high level of German proficiency, we have primarily offered jobs that do not require technical skills or a considerable amount of interaction in German," a spokesman said by email.

Late Stage Lying: Pneumonia Theory vs. Parkinson’s Disease Theory; Doctors Chime In

Certified Opinion

I am not qualified to comment on the likelihood of Parksinson’s. Since Snopes did not bother to consult experts, they are not qualified either. So how can they label the story “false”?

On the other hand, I am qualified to recognize bullsheet. I do that every day for a living.

My certified opinion is “Late Stage Lying, Mid Stage Lying, and Early Stage Lying” by the Hillary campaign.

Here are some comments from medical doctors. Some were posted publicly on my blog others in private emails to me.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have noticed, in all the coverage of Hillary's allegedly returning to the campaign trail today, and having to fly out of New York to get to her rallies, that there are absolutely no time stamps on the images.

These clips could have been taken at any time, before her fall, when she was campaigning.

I have wondered if she is "attending " these rallies from her home, courtesy of a closed circuit television.

Hillary’s Deplorables: 7 Foreign Dictators and Anti-LGBT Nations Hillary Bagged Millions From

When Hillary Clinton described half of the Americans supporting Donald Trump as a “basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” people, she opened herself up to criticism about her own “deplorables”: The repressive regimes that gave millions to the Clinton Foundation, many of those high-dollar donations flooding in while Clinton was serving as Secretary of State.

From despots looking to gain legitimacy on the international stage to oil-rich oligarchs, Hillary Clinton’s family foundation took money from the worst of the worst and countries with horrific human rights records.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And again, don't any of you Clintonistas DARE to try to offer the "ignorance apology" for Clinton, that she just didn't know this horrific stuff was going on in these countries from which she tool money.

One little, tiny bit of research from an intern would have pulled this information up with a web search, brought it to Huma Abedin's attention, and suggesting that this might not a terribly wise thing to do.

And the LGBTQ community needs to ask itself honestly, "If the Clinton Foundation took money from these countries, which do these horrific things, HOW CAN SHE REALLY BE PRO THE LGBTQ community here in the United States?!?"

And the short answer is, she's not.

Folks the most logical answer here is, she knew; and she took the money anyway.

Deal with it.

Mexico Builds A "Wall" (And Guess Who Paid For It)

Mexico is building a 'wall'... on its southern border (to keep illegal immigrants out). Perhaps even more ironic, The FT notes that the Obama administration is coy about its role in Mexico’s crackdown but is sending $75m in equipment and training to help stop Central Americans from crossing illegally into Mexico... in other words, US Taxpayers funded a Mexican wall to keep immigrants out.

Monsanto and Bayer: Why Food And Agriculture Just Took A Turn For The Worse

News broke this week that Monsanto accepted a $66 billion takeover bid from Bayer. The new company would control more than 25 per cent of the global supply of commercial seeds and pesticides. Bayer’s crop chemicals business is the world’s second largest after Syngenta, and Monsanto is the leading commercial seeds business.

Monsanto held a 26 per cent market share of all seeds sold in 2011. Bayer (mainly a pharmaceuticals company) sells 17 per cent of the world’s total agrochemicals and also has a comparatively small seeds sector. If competition authorities pass the deal, the combined company would be the globe’s largest seller of both seeds and agrochemicals.

The deal marks a trend towards consolidation in the industry with Dow and DuPont having agreed to merge and Swiss seed/pesticide giant Syngenta merging with ChemChina, a Chinese government concern.

In response to the Monsanto-Bayer merger, US National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson issued the following statement:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This would-be corporate marriage has been fabricated in hell.

While much money rides on these megamergers, I would encourage every appropriate governmental agency to look, very closely, at what the realities are, in terms of how such a merger will affect the nutrition, and health, of every American.

Homeland Security Chair Claims He "Misspoke" - 'Russians' Did Not Hack RNC

As Politico reports, House Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul said Wednesday that Russian hackers have penetrated the computer systems of the Republican National Committee.

"It’s important to note, Wolf, that they have hacked not only hacked into the DNC but also into the RNC,” McCaul (R-Texas) said in an appearance on CNN.

“So they are not discriminating one party against the others. The Russians have basically hacked into both parties at the national level and that gives us all concern about what their motivations are.”
But a top RNC official disputed McCaul.

"There has been no known breach of the RNC's cyber network," said Sean Cairncross, the RNC's chief operating officer.

Video Shows How Mainstream Media Uses A Single Talking Point to Brainwash Americans

This week being no exception, when Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton fainted after an early exit from a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City, conservative mainstream media scrambled to theorize on the ever-deepening questions surrounding her health.

Qualifying to head the empire, after all, would ostensibly require a person in their physical prime.

On the other side, left-leaning corporate media — previously exposed for colluding with the Democratic National Committee to bathe the former secretary of state in the glowing light of positivity — was forced to scramble to explain away her sudden inability to stand, while Facebook blatantly censored coverage of the incident in its trending topics section.

HealthForce becomes HealthFARCE: Data dump confirms mass deception and cover-up of the death of Jameth Sheridan

May Jameth Sheridan rest in peace and find love and happiness in the realm beyond this world. He was a cherished soul to many, and his contributions to knowledge and inspiration were many. It's just sad that his own friends and family members covered up his death for six months to keep selling products for profit, denying their own customers their chance to honor his passing. The deliberate lack of transparency you are witnessing here is unprecedented and inexcusable for a company that claimed to uphold the highest standards of integrity, honesty and transparency. Any honest, trustworthy company should be open with their customers and acknowledge critical events such as the death of their founder and formulator.

If Donald Trump is elected president, will he and his family permanently sever all connections to the Trump Organization, a sprawling business empire that has spread a secretive financial web across the world? Or will Trump instead choose to be the most conflicted president in American history, one whose business interests will constantly jeopardize the security of the United States?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gabe seems to have forgotten that by law, a serving President must place their personal wealth into a blind trust. While President, Trump won't know where his wealth is invested so that it does not influence him.

Some Presidents have tried to cheat the system (the most liely motive for the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster during the Clinton administration) but in theory it is a good idea and should also apply to all elected/appointed officials in the future!

I would also remind everyone that Hillary, as Secretary of State, promised to delink from the Clinton Foundation, and as the leaked DNC emails prove, did not keep that promise.

FBI's Comey: Twitter fuels 'monster of a bias'

FBI Director James Comey lamented on Wednesday the loss of public trust in government institutions like the one he runs and blamed “echo chambers” like Twitter for making his job more difficult.
“My children, again, discipline me not to go on Twitter because apparently people say bad things about me on Twitter. But things like Twitter offer us the opportunity only to encounter views consistent with our own, 24 hours a day,” Comey explained at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event Wednesday. “There’s an opportunity to feed that monster of a bias, that confirmation bias, all the time. So it accelerates that fractionalizing of our society, and it makes it much harder for people like me, like you, like the people in here, to speak reason to folks about our institutions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The culprit here is not twitter; the real problem is governmental lying and deceit, which is ultimately found out, quite more quickly than it used to be, and becomes public knowledge.

So please ask your colleagues in government to stop lying to us; that will make life simpler for us all.

Senator: $38 Billion Israel Aid Deal Not Enough

In the 48 hours leading up to Israel and the US agreeing on a record $38 billion military aid deal, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) began to push hard against it, suggesting Congress could give Israel and even bigger aid package, and telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Obama could “go F himself” if he didn’t like the larger aid.

Israel, ultimately, accepted the Obama deal, and also promised not to seek additional funds from Congress. That doesn’t mean Graham has given up, however, and he’s insisted Congress isn’t bound by this new deal, and free to give Israel all the extra billions they feel like.

Sen. Graham now says he intends to introduce a $1.5 billion additional aid deal for Israel just for this year, suggesting that Congress would be free to keep throwing similar “emergency supplementals” at Israel every year if they want to, and saying he believes there’s a lot of support for it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Senator Lindsey Graham: your "alleged" South Carolinian constituents are looking at this attempted maneuver, and wishing that you were desiring to do as much for them as you are trying to do for Tel Aviv.

Why don't you please retire as Senator,move to Israel, and run for the Knesset?!?

Because with all of your coddling such a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons (to whom all US aid is actually illegal, under the Symington Amendment), that has to be the ultimate game plan, right?!?
