What “The Press” Looked Like When The First Amendment Was Written

What follows is a satirical rewrite of the Washington Post article titled “What ‘arms’ looked like when the 2nd Amendment was written”. All mentions of arms have been replaced with the press, etc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The gun-grabbers like to claim that the Second Amendment does not cover rapid-fire weapons because they did not exist when the Second Amendment was created. As usual, they flap their lips without knowing what they are talking about!

NYT: "Anonymous Source" Told Us Trump Wanted to Make Kasich De Facto President

The New York Times, the paper best known for using an "anonymous source" to hoax the US into the war in Iraq by claiming Saddam had WMDs, is out with another whopper.

This time, they're claiming Donald Trump wanted to make competitive eater John Kasich -- who won't even endorse him despite previously pledging to do so -- the de facto president!

Is the Saudi 9/11 Story Part Of The Deception? — Paul Craig Roberts

James Jesus Angleton, head of CIA counterintelligence for three decades, long ago explained to me that intelligence services create stories inside stories, each with its carefully constructed trail of evidence, in order to create false trails as diversions. Such painstaking work can serve a variety of purposes. It can be used to embarrass or discredit an innocent person or organization that has an unhelpful position on an important issue and is in the way of an agenda. It can be used as a red herring to draw attention away from a failing explanation of an event by producing an alternative false explanation. I forget what Angleton called them, but the strategy is to have within a false story other stories that are there but withheld because of “national security” or “politically sensitive issues” or some such. Then if the official story gets into trouble, the backup story can be released in order to deflect attention into a new false story or to support the original story. Angleton said that intelligence services protect their necessary misdeeds by burying the misdeed in competing explanations.

Watching the expert craftsmanship of the “Saudis did 9/11” story, I have been wondering if the Saudi story is what Angleton described as a story within a story.

The Turkish Coup in Context: Redrawing the Map of the CIA Drug Trade

By Rusticus

It’s been four short days since the July 15, 2016 coup d’état (color revolution?) attempt in Turkey, and already, the open-source research community is well underway in digesting what’s just occurred. President Recep Erdogan was quick to place the blame at the feet of his long-time political opponent (and likely CIA asset), a multi-billionaire “refugee” hiding out in the woods of western Pennsylvania – cleric Fethullah Gülen. Gülen, in turn, pointed the finger back at Erdogan, suggesting that the coup was staged for the express intent of centralizing authority.

The Cairo Declaration

“The several military missions have agreed upon future military operations against Japan. They covet no gain for themselves and have no thought of territorial expectation. It is their purpose that Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the first World War in 1914, and that all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa, and the Pescadores, shall be restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed. The aforesaid three great powers, mindful of the enslavement of the people of Korea, are determined that in due course Korea shall become free and independent.”

BEX TRASH ALERT! Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie, And That Has Studio Execs In A Panic

Huffpo has advocated the assassination of Donald Trump. I hope the place gets closed down and the editors arrested. Huffpo sees nothing wrong with getting rid of the 2nd amendment. They have abused the first horribly!

Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which “Donald Trump” accidentally contracts HIV.

“The Brothers Grimsby“ opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you’re learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy. The studio is concerned about the reaction from the real Donald Trump, according to industry sources familiar with the situation.

L.A. Times Suggests Military Coup Against President Trump

Jamie Kirchick, writing in the Los Angeles Times, asks readers to imagine a military coup against a future President Donald Trump — and argues why one would be necessary.

Kirchick cites the example of the recent failed coup in Turkey as a source of inspiration:

Americans viewing the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey as some exotic foreign news story — the latest, violent yet hardly unusual political development to occur in a region constantly beset by turmoil — should pause to consider that the prospect of similar instability would not be unfathomable in this country if Donald Trump were to win the presidency.

Kirchick goes on to argue that Trump is a nascent authoritarian, whose illegal military orders — such as torturing terrorists — the military would be required to ignore, and then resist by force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at globalresearch.ca:

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying: The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security. (O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense. I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror. No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents. Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.” “I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.” She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.” She endorses using cluster bombs, toxic agents and nuclear weapons in US war theaters. She calls them deterrents that “keep the peace.” She was one of only six Democrat senators opposed to blocking deployment of untested missile defense systems – first-strike weapons entirely for offense.

So, there you have it, on the record: Hillary Clinton is prepared to go to war with Iran (and most probably Russia, whose military and civilian leadership have all vowed to protect it militarily.)

Wall Street Angry that Donald Trump Says “Restore Glass-Steagall Act”

What produced the 2008 crash was the Clinton-Republican Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, named after the three conservative Republicans (Phil Gramm, Jim Leach, and Tom Bliley) who wrote it. Sanford Weill, then merely the head of Travelers Insurance, was a financial empire-builder who wanted his firm to buy Citibank, so as to produce the first financial conglomerate, Citigroup — a merger which the Glass-Steagall Act would have blocked from happening. Weill’s Clinton-Administration friends Robert J. Rubin and Lawrence Summers had no trouble convincing their boss to say yes to Gramm-Leach-Bliley, though this would toss out the core of Democrat FDR’s lasting heritage and restore the cause of the Great Depression: Wall Street’s gambling with depositors’ savings — gambling with assets that are so crucial the government would be politically compelled to backstop to prevent bankrupting tens of millions of people, savers who had made no error.

Judge Makes Stunning Ruling In Bundy Case

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that without the benefit of a public hearing, U.S. Federal Judge Peggy Leen has issued an order ruling that no transcripts, reports or witness statements of any kind may be disclosed by defense teams for all 19 defendants in the 2014 armed standoff between Cliven Bundy’s camp and the FBI.

Leen made her decision Friday, citing potential death threats against prosecutors as justification.

Leen continued saying that a “common law or First Amendment right” for the press and the public to access the government’s pretrial evidence does not exist, though all information obtained through “open sources” such as the internet or social media would be accessible.

Ammon Bundy’s attorney, Dan Hill, was not pleased with the judge’s decision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in Judge Leen's courtroom, the First Amendment to the Constitution does not exist, with regard to the government's pre-trial evidence.

I have to ask: why?!?

What is the BLM so desperate to conceal here?!?!?

Liberal GQ Magazine Writer on Mother of Benghazi Victim: ‘I would like to beat her to death’

Liberals lost their minds when Pat Smith spoke at the GOP convention last night. They can’t stand hearing someone who lost her son (and was lied to by Hillary Clinton about why it happened) telling the truth.

A liberal writer for GQ Magazine named Bethlehem Shoals even said on Twitter that he wanted to beat her to death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An apology followed, but it had all the fake sincerity of something said by a really bad snake oil salesman.

Should Hillary get elected, one of her first acts as President will be to establish her very own "Ministry of Truth", which will ruthlessly persecute anyone with even a slightly different narrative than her own.

She will order "belief and allegiance" to anything she says, no matter how much of a lie it may be, and declare any other response "treason", to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

And I am certain that Bethlehem Shoals will be on her "short list" as the Department Director for that, having tweeted that he wanted to beat Pat Smith to death (for telling the truth).

Posted on July 19, 2016 by Baxter Dmitry in News, US // 8 Comments
Bernie Sanders earned more pledged delegates than Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries and now a long awaited lawsuit has finally been filed in Ohio alleging that systematic and coordinated election fraud stole the presidential nomination from Sanders.

Bernie Sanders earned more pledged delegates than Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries and now a long awaited lawsuit has finally been filed in Ohio alleging that systematic and coordinated election fraud stole the presidential nomination from Sanders.

Filed by the Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity, the lawsuit presents evidence of statistically impossible differences between exit polls and electronic vote totals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, this effort could well be characterized as way too little, way too late.

The raw data has probably been expunged, or hidden in such a way as to be irrecoverable by Clinton's people.

How the Clinton Foundation Got Rich off Poor Haitians

The devastating effect of the earthquake on a very poor nation provoked worldwide concern and inspired an outpouring of aid money intended to rebuild Haiti. Countries around the world, as well as private and philanthropic groups such as the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, provided some $10.5 billion in aid, with $3.9 billion of it coming from the United States.

Haitians such as Andre, however, noticed that very little of this aid money actually got to poor people in Haiti. Some projects championed by the Clintons, such as the building of industrial parks and posh hotels, cost a great deal of money and offered scarce benefits to the truly needy. Port-au-Prince was supposed to be rebuilt; it was never rebuilt. Projects aimed at creating jobs proved to be bitter disappointments. Haitian unemployment remained high, largely undented by the funds that were supposed to pour into the country. Famine and illness continued to devastate the island nation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is part of the Clinton "pattern" of taking care of themselves and their cronies, at horrific costs to the people they are allegedly "helping".

And should Clinton steal/win the White House in November, there will be no end in site to this behaviour on either her or Bill's part.

US PUBLIC EDUCATION: BULLSHIT TO TRAIN STUPEFIED WORK ANIMALS. PHYSICAL EDUCATION FAILS TO DECLARE US NATIONAL EMERGENCY OF UNFIT, UNHAPPY HUMANS IN BODY AND MIND

This 11-part series addresses an overarching fact about public education: its design of intentional curricular lies of omission and commission to keep our children and the general public powerless, relatively stupid, and controlled work animals.

Importantly, I do not blame education professionals working in good-faith effort to produce high-quality learning from our children; public education exists in a matrix of control for ongoing empires that I’ll explain in detail within the series’ sections. That said, anyone truly educated in one’s field gradually discovers that public education is a ridiculous substitute for what’s most important to teach and learn. This is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious when pointed to, with this paper’s content including factual assertions that no counterarguments exist outside of shallow and misleading bullshit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core does a brilliant job of making kids think they are being educated, when they are really being indoctrinated to believe particular narratives which are useful to them being completely controlled by a government that cares absolutely not about their futures.

As long as this festers in our classrooms, Americans will never again be competitive against those countries with the best educational outcomes.

As reported at fairreporters.net last year, in their assessment of the best educational systems in the world, here are countries rated from best to worst educational systems, in terms of math and science:

1. Singapore 21. Czech Rep 41. Turkey 61. Jordan
2. Hong Kong 22. Denmark 42. Serbia 62. Argentina
3. South Korea 23. France 43. Bulgaria 63. Albania

URBAN FARMERS TARGETED BY CITY, ISSUED MULTIPLE THREATS AFTER THEIR PROPERTY WAS VANDALIZED

Southeast Oklahoma City residents Charles and Julie Henry face a blatantly unconstitutional invasion of their rights thanks to a stifling change to a city ordinance making vandalism to their property essentially a crime — by them.

Though the Henrys complied with the code, albeit a bit late due to a prohibitive financial situation, an opportunistic code enforcer triggered a chain of events no law-abiding property owner should ever be subjected to — including the possibility their property may be raided by Oklahoma County Sheriffs under a blanket warrant in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment.

According to a GoFundMe page set up to assist the family’s legal battle against the City, their low-income neighborhood typically experiences an outbreak of vandalism each spring — which the city promptly cleans up to discourage other vandals from copying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a massive, vicious act of over-reach by city officials, who should, themselves, be sacked for having done this to a couple just barely able to survive.

Judicial Watch: Hillary Clinton Testimony Essential

Judicial Watch today announced it submitted reply briefs (available here and here) to the court in response to the State Department’s and Secretary Clinton’s oppositions to Judicial Watch’s request for permission to depose former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Director of Office of Correspondence and Records of the Executive Secretariat (“S/ES-CRM”) Clarence Finney; and the former Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat (“S/ES-IRM”) John Bentel. Today’s filings arise in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit before U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G.

Other documents show Mateen admitted to initially lying to the FBI about past statements tying him to the Boston Marathon bombers, the Fort Hood terrorist, and al Qaeda terrorists in Kenya.

2003 video shows then-Saudi FM asking to declassify 28 pages of 911 report

For years in the wake of the September 11 attacks, 28 classified pages from a US government inquiry have proven to be a bone of contention.

Many claimed that the unreleased documents contained links between Saudi officials and hijackers colluding to hatch the terror plot, which left over 3,000 people killed. Others believed that the kingdom did not want the documents to see the light of day.

On Friday, the US congress released the 28 pages, after years of wrangling in Washington between Congress and different administrations, Republicans and Democrats, and urging by families of the victims.

After reviewing the 28 pages, US intelligence officials say the documents show no evidence of Saudi complicity, the White House confirmed on the same day.

Decline of Empire: Parallels Between the U.S. and Rome

The U.S. reached its peak relative to the world, and in some ways its absolute peak, as early as the 1950s. In 1950 this country produced 50% of the world’s GNP and 80% of its vehicles. Now it’s about 21% of world GNP and 5% of its vehicles. It owned two-thirds of the world’s gold reserves; now it holds one-fourth. It was, by a huge margin, the world’s biggest creditor, whereas now it’s the biggest debtor by a huge margin. The income of the average American was by far the highest in the world; today it ranks about eighth, and it’s slipping.

"The Case For Donald Trump Is Simple"

What’s the best case for Donald Trump?

The question comes in the week Republicans here will formally nominate him for president, and the answer is not complicated. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence gave it as his reason for signing on as Mr. Trump’s VP: The alternative is President Hillary Clinton.

This is the reality of choice in a two-party democracy. Still, many have a hard time accepting it. So even as Mr. Trump handily dispatched 16 more-experienced rivals, his shortcomings and unfitness for office have become a staple of conservative fare.

Yes, Mr. Trump elevates insult over argument. Yes, he is vague and contradictory about the details of his own proposals. And yes, he often speaks aloud before thinking things through. It’s all fair game.

Even so, in this election Mr. Trump is not running against himself. Though you might not know it from much of the commentary and coverage, he is running against Mrs. Clinton.

'It's Working:' New Analysis Shows Insurers Losing Tens of Millions Annually on Obamacare

Via John Sexton, here's a Politico report on the 'Affordable' Care Act's unstable, unsustainable status quo:

For the insurance companies doing business in the state–the ones issuing policies to those 600,000 people–Obamacare has turned into a financial sinkhole. United Health Group, the nation’s largest insurance company, is pulling out of the Obamacare business in North Carolina next year. Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, which dominated the individual market with more than a half-million customers, reported that losses on its Obamacare business in 2014 and 2015 topped $400 million. The insurer said that figure includes government payments designed to shield insurers from big losses during the early years of Obamacare. The only other current competitor, Aetna, wants to hike rates by nearly 25 percent next year...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stating that something "is working" by fiat, and not paying attention to the real numbers here, including the number of people who can no longer get health insurance, is creating a huge "lost their reality license moment", for both Clinton and Obama.

Turkey Failed Coup: Ties Emerge Between Hilary Clinton And Mysterious Islamic Cleric Fethullah Gulen

A newly-released email and lobbying documents filed with Congress reveals new ties between Clintonworld and members of a network operated by a mysterious Islamic cleric from Turkey.

Connections between Clinton and acolytes of the imam, Fethullah Gulen, could muddle the complex relationship between the U.S. and Turkey, a key NATO ally, if the former secretary of state wins the White House.

Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, has mounted an aggressive crackdown against Gulen and his followers, known as Gulenists. Erdo?an, who was once allied with Gulen, has even personally asked President Obama to extradite the 74-year-old guru, who has lived in self-exile in Pennsylvania’s Pocono mountains since 1999.

Erdo?an has accused Gulen of attempting to undermine the Turkish government. Gulen’s followers control many Turkish institutions, including the media, courts, and police force.

Syria’s “Moderate Rebels” Are Not Moderate, Not Rebels

12 1 76
Flag-map_of_Syria.svg
Never has the US-led conspiracy against the sovereign state of Syria been so transparent. When recently a Syrian warplane crashed near the Syrian capital of Damascus and its pilot parachuted to safety, he was captured and promptly executed by US-backed “moderate rebels.” In what was clearly an inexcusable war crime, the story began to change almost immediately in order to shift the blame.

Reuters in its article, “Syrian warplane crashes near Damascus, rebels say pilot killed,” would report (emphasis added):

The rebel group Jaish al-Islam said the pilot had been killed by a Nusra Front fighter while being held at a joint command centre. Jaish al-Islam had earlier said he would be handed over to them because they had shot down his plane.

Jaish al-Islam, which controls territory on the Syrian capital’s eastern and northeastern outskirts, had earlier circulated a photo that it said showed the pilot.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What a logical position for the US government and military here to be taking is that of complete cooperation with the Russians in getting rid of ALL jihadists in Syria.

However, unfortunately, logic, and the last several, and current administrations, have not had a good on-going relationship.

Netanyahu: I hope Israel, U.S. will conclude military aid deal in coming weeks

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that he hopes to close ongoing talks and reach a deal with the United States concerning long-term military aid to Israel in the coming weeks.

Addressing Israeli lawmakers during the local version of Question Time, the prime minister said that "I hope that within a few weeks, we will close the agreement on defense aid with the United States."

During an appearance on Monday before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman reportedly said he believes that Israel and the United States will wrap up negotiations on long-term future American military aid by Rosh Hashanah, which this year begins on October 2. The comments were reported by two Knesset members who attended the meeting but asked not to be identified because the session was classified as secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in activistpost.com 2 May 2016:

Falsely decried as an “anti-Israel” administration, the Obama White House is signaling that it is open to providing Israel with an unprecedented amount of support both in terms of financing and military assistance. If the reports coming out of Israeli media are true, the new agreement with Israel would be the largest amount of aid provided to any country in U.S. history. The US and Israel have been engaged in intense negotiations in recent months to outline US military aid to Israel for the next 10 years. Israel is demanding $40 billion over the next ten years, a sizeable jump from the $30 billion over 10 years given to Israel over the past decade. The tentative agreement is yet one more example of the falsity of the left-right paradigm that sees the “right” accuse the false “left” of being “weak on terror,” “weak on Iran,” and “anti-Israel” all while the false “left” is actually launching wars across the world, bullying Iran into accepting a deal it should by no means have to accept, and giving Israel the largest amount of assistance in U.S. history.

The President and the 83 Senators who signed this letter, apparently, need to be reminded of the following fact: under the Symington Amendment, all military and financial aid to Israel is completely illegal.

The Symington Amendment expressly forbids any aid to countries which will not sign the NNPT, and refuse to have their weapons facilities inspected; unlike Iran, Israel refuses to sign the NNPT, and have its nuclear facilities inspected.

But, then again, the President and Senators believe that law....only applies to "us little people", and not to themselves, particularly when it comes to Israel, even when that aid breaks American law, as it does in this instance.

Should Police Use Bombs To Kill Criminals?

In the wake of the two seemingly outrageous slayings of African American men by police in Minnesota and Louisiana and the equally heinous retaliatory killings of five police officers in Dallas by a black former Army Reservist, questions have been raised in all three cases about excessive police behavior.

Police surrogates on the cable TV networks were sent into a state of apoplexy that some security analysts, while the Dallas police department was still grieving, raised eyebrows about the use of an exploding bomb, delivered by a robot, to kill the Dallas shooter. Whether intentional or not, this argument was an attempt to use the legitimate grief of the police families to shield the department from a debate about the aggressive military tactics used to kill the shooter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although my heart goes out to those slain officers, their families, and their friends, I did have a moment of pause about how their killer was executed; by an armed robot, for the first time in police history.

Yes, the crime committed by Johnson was heinous and horrific; but I am very concerned about this technology becoming "legitimized" for police work in the future in this country.

How soon will such technology be used against peaceful protesters, who have a reasonable gripe about what their government is doing in America?!?

Unfortunately, the way "due process" seems to have been ripped out of the American judicial process, my bet would be...soon.

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

Saudi Arabia is not going to risk an attack on the US because all that wealth would vanish. The Saudi wealth inside the US would be frozen or seized, and the outstanding loans to the US would never be repaid. The "useful idiots" trying to save Israel by blaming 9-11 on Saudi Arabia have yet to come up with a motive for the Saudis to do something like 9-11 that risks losing all that cash.

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was still alive after 9-11 and sued the US Government for defaming him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media are screaming that the recently released 28 pages "convict" Saudi Arabia of 9-11.

Right.

And Saddam had nuclear weapons.

Apparently they are hoping that nobody has read those actual pages because there is nothing there but rumor and innuendo. It's all "may have", or "might be." There is nothing substantive at all.

And as this article (which I hope you will share on social media) points out, Saudi Arabia had no motive to commit 9-11, and even if they had reason to harm the US, they didn't need airplanes into sky scrapers to do it!

ISIS releases video made by Afghan axeman, 17, in which he says his horror attack on German train that injured 19 was in revenge for Western airstrikes

ISIS has released a chilling video of the Afghan refugee who went on an axe rampage on a German train where he says he will attack the country in revenge for airstrikes against the terror group.

The attacker, who is named in the footage as Muhammad Riyad, was gunned down by armed police after fleeing the scene near the city of Wurzburg, 70 miles north of Nuremberg last night.

He is believed to be 17 years old although in the video, he appears he could be much older.
It has been revealed he moved to Germany two years ago and had been living with a foster family in Ochsenfurt for the past two weeks.

He shouted 'Allahu Akbar' during the incident and ISIS has claimed responsibility, making it the first attack by the terror group in Germany.

An Illegal Military Strategy Disguised As Technological Advance

Think of it as the Trojan Drone, the ultimate techno-weapon of American warfare in these years, a single remotely operated plane sent to take out a single key figure. It’s a shiny video game for grown ups — a Mortal Kombat or Call of Duty where the animated enemies bleed real blood. Just like the giant wooden horse the Greeks convinced the Trojans to bring inside their gates, however, the drone carries something deadly in its belly: a new and illegal military strategy disguised as an impressive piece of technology.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it is only a question of time regarding how long it will be that we see this technology being used here in the US, unless there is a massive, peaceful move on the part of all Americans to prevent it.

And please, don't think, "Wow, that can't happen here!"; because the precedent has already been set for extrajudicial assassinations right here at home, and in a circumstance many Americans might have applauded.

Micah Johnson, who shot and killed police in Dallas last week, was taken down with a robot, armed with a bomb.

This is the first time in police history in this country that this has happened; but I can nearly guarantee you, it will not be the last.

Latest Guccifer 2.0 Leak Reaffirms Primaries Were Rigged for Clinton

The memo is just one of several documents released by Guccifer 2.0 proving the Democratic National Committee rigged the system for Clinton. Before the primaries began, DNC strategies were developed with Clinton in mind as the presidential nominee. The leak affirms claims by Bernie Sanders’ supporters that the Democratic primaries were not an election, but rather a coronation for Hillary Clinton.

Because many of the documents implicate mainstream media outlets in their complacency to adhere to the DNC’s strategy, the Guccifer 2.0 hacks have gone largely unreported. Some of the documents even unveil how the Clinton campaign fed specific stories to the media in order to boost their political agenda.

BREAKING: Congress Bypasses FBI, Moves To Charge Hillary With Federal Crime

It looks like there could be some good news on the horizon for anyone outraged that Hillary Clinton has not been held legally responsible for any of her crimes against the American people.

FEDERAL AGENTS WENT UNDERCOVER TO SPY ON ANTI-FRACKING MOVEMENT, EMAILS REVEAL

When more than 300 protesters assembled in May at the Holiday Inn in Lakewood, Colorado — the venue chosen by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for an auction of oil and gas leases on public lands — several of the demonstrators were in fact undercover agents sent by law enforcement to keep tabs on the demonstration, according to emails obtained by The Intercept.

The “Keep it in the Ground” movement, a broad effort to block the development of drilling projects, has rapidly gained traction over the last year, raising pressure on the Obama administration to curtail hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, and coal mining on federal public lands. In response, government agencies and industry groups have sharply criticized the activists in public, while quietly moving to track their activities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I firmly believe that all hydraulic fracking should be done within two feet of the homes oil executives should be mandated to live in, so that they, and their families. would experience all the symptoms and consequences of fracking, firsthand.

Of course, that will happen only when pigs fly.

But this surveillance demonstrates, incontrovertibly, that Obama is no less beholden to his corporate masters than are his Republican colleagues.

OVER 1 MILLION? WHY WE MAY NEVER KNOW HOW MANY CIVILIANS HAVE DIED IN IRAQ WAR

In some ways, the Chilcot Inquiry was a success for the anti-war crowd, as it confirmed everything we already knew about the war in Iraq. In other ways, it was a complete disappointment because it failed to dig into the fundamental problems underlying the U.S. and U.K.’s pursuit of this horrific, illegal war.

As the U.S. presence in Iraq continues to increase thirteen years after the initial U.S.-U.K. led invasion, it is time to ask at least one hard question the Chilcot Inquiry failed to ask.

How many civilians in Iraq have lost their lives because of the 2003 invasion?

Unfortunately, this is something the Chilcot Inquiry refused to investigate. Section 17 of the Chilcot Inquiry Report stated:

It is beyond the scope and abilities of this Inquiry to establish independently the number of fatalities caused by conflict in Iraq, or the broader human cost of the conflict to the Iraqi people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are four disgustingly foul sociopaths who should be cooling their collective heels at the ICC, for crimes against humanity, regarding this war to insure that Western companies dominated the flow of oil from Iraq, and the selling of Iraq's oil only in US dollars.

Their surnames are Blair, Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney.

But of course, money buys much in the Western world, and that includes protection and privilege, and - in essence - never having to say one is sorry for the horrific crimes one has committed.

But there may be an interesting, ironic turnabout coming in Iraq. As reported yesterday at Reuters:

Powerful Shi'ite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr instructed his followers on Sunday to target U.S. troops deploying to Iraq as part of the military campaign against Islamic State. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Monday the Pentagon would dispatch 560 additional troops to help Iraqi forces retake the northern city of Mosul in an offensive planned for later this year. Sadr, who rose to prominence when his Mahdi Army battled U.S. troops after the 2003 invasion, posted the comments on his official website after a follower asked for his response to the announcement. "They are a target for us," Sadr said, without offering details.

The US-installed pupped government of Al-Abadi has been an abject, corrupt, and utter epic fail, in terms of not at all meeting the urgent needs of the Iraqi people.

So what happens if Al-Sadr galvanizes the Iraqi people with a popular revolution which drives out the current government, the American troops, and the ISIL jihadists?!?

Should that happen, I would almost be willing to bet that Iraqi oil will no longer be controlled by Western interests, or only sold for the US dollar. It may well, at that point, be sold for the Russian Ruble, the Iranian Rial, the Euro, or the Yuan; in fact, anything BUT the dollar.

There is a Biblical injunction about reaping what one has sown; in Iraq, the US and UK have sown death and destruction for money, and that is very possibly about to come crashing down on their heads, financially, should there be a national revolution in Iraq.

Were the Nice Attacks A False Flag Or A Lone Nut?

By Brandon Turbeville

The recent truck attack in Nice, France was, from the outset, exploited by national governments and reported in a schizophrenic manner that, on one hand, declared the attacker a “weird” loner acting completely on his own by virtue of his many psychological problems while, on the other hand, a terrorist attack aimed at the allegedly democratic institutions of France and the Western world. Among the reports surrounding the attack, many alternative media outlets are suggesting that the attack was yet another false flag engineered or at least facilitated by Western intelligence agencies for the purposes of propaganda, psychic driving, and the establishment of the “new normal” of constant terror and fear.

So which is it?...

Craig Murray: Fox, Gould, Werritty and Israel – Please write to your MP

Hansard Publc Admininstration Committee 24/11/2011
Q<369> Paul Flynn: Okay. Matthew Gould has been the subject of a very serious complaint from two of my constituents, Pippa Bartolotti and Joyce Giblin. When they were briefly imprisoned in Israel, they met the ambassador, and they strongly believe—it is nothing to do with this case at all—that he was serving the interest of the Israeli Government, and not the interests of two British citizens. This has been the subject of correspondence.

In your report, you suggest that there were two meetings between the ambassador and Werritty and Liam Fox. Questions and letters have proved that, in fact, six such meetings took place. There are a number of issues around this. I do not normally fall for conspiracy theories, but the ambassador has proclaimed himself to be a Zionist and he has previously served in Iran, in the service. Werritty is a self-proclaimed—

Robert Halfon: Point of order, Chairman. What is the point of this?

Paul Flynn: Let me get to it. Werritty is a self-proclaimed expert on Iran.

Chair: I have to take a point of order.

Robert Halfon: Mr Flynn is implying that the British ambassador to Israel is working for a foreign power, which is out of order.

Former Clinton Associate Exposes Fake News Agenda

“As a journalist, to say these words, I can’t tell you with what a heavy heart I say them, but we’ve entered an era in which it is not crazy to assess news events to see if they’re real or not real, in the United States, as well as overseas, and if fact, it’s kind of crazy not to.”

Thelastamericanvagabond.com reports:

The resounding applause that followed that extremely impactful statement serves to demonstrate quite clearly how many Americans are becoming acutely aware of their own government’s manipulation of their lives. There is a reflexive vilification of anyone speculating about the idea of a false flag in today’s society, regardless of its historical precedent, because they become a “Conspiracy Theorist” and are cast as “the crazy few.” Yet it is becoming increasingly apparent that those who are at least questioning the mainstream narrative, are in fact the many.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Language Arts fails to communicate inspiration for humanity; losing the human spirit’s self-expression to slavish empire (7 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Absence of purpose for language: Where is the emphasis and practice with communication?
Language Arts is blind to the Orwellian world we live in while ironically “teaching” Orwell.
Teaching grammar as form for language without inspiration for communication to build a brighter future.

And let’s reflect upon three questions:

What does it mean that Language Arts professionals miss the point of language to connect with each other?
What kind of academic discipline is blind to living on an “animal farm” while claiming to “teach” the novels Animal Farm and 1984?

Sunlight is not the primary cause of skin cancer.

Sun Exposure: Cancer Cause or Part of the Solution?

Article Summary

Sunlight is not the primary cause of skin cancer. In fact, sunlight actually prevents cancer! There is considerable evidence that shows vitamin D (which is produced from the sun’s rays) is protective of many cancers ? including melanoma.

At a 2012 conference, Dr. Daniel Coit, surgical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), shared his startling research on melanoma: that melanoma is directly related to family history and that most melanomas are not related to sun exposure, and therefore sunblock or avoiding sun exposure does not prevent melanoma.

Other studies have also shown that sun exposure does not cause melanoma, and that the use of sunscreen can actually increase the risk.

Why Do We Pretend to Clean Up Ocean Oil Spills? Many scientists describe such efforts as 'prime-time theatre.' Yet the farce continues.

In many respects, society's theatrical response to catastrophic oil spills resembles the way medical professionals respond to aggressive cancer in an elderly patient. Because surgery is available, it is often used. Surgery also creates the impression that the health-care system is doing something even though it can't change or reverse the patient's ultimate condition. In an oil-based society, the cleanup delusion is also irresistible. Just as it is difficult for us to acknowledge the limits of medical intervention, society struggles to acknowledge the limits of technologies or the consequences of energy habits. And that's where the state of marine oil spill response sits today: it creates little more than an illusion of a cleanup. Scientists -- outside the oil industry -- call it "prime-time theatre" or "response theatre."

Perjury: Laws and Penalties

A person convicted of perjury under federal law may face up to five years in prison and fines. The punishment for perjury under state law varies from state to state, but perjury is a felony and carries a possible prison sentence of at least one year, plus fines and probation. Penalties are increased in relation to how much the perjury interfered with the proceeding. When the perjurer was a witness in his own criminal trial, his sentence for the underlying conviction may also be increased, on the grounds that a lying defendant is one who has a bad character and is not likely to be rehabilitated quickly.

First the Turkey Coup, Now the Economic Crash

Erdogan is now demanding that Gülen be surrendered to Turkey immediately. In an action that smacks of suspicion that the Obama Administration had some hand in the coup, Turkey has cut off power and suspended U.S. Air Force operations at Turkey’s huge Incirlik Air Base, which serves as the main American F-16 launching platform for the round-the-clock bombing campaign against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook responded in a statement to the closure of Turkey air space to their NATO military ally that the U.S. military was still seeking a full accounting of all personnel and dependents in Turkey: “All indications at this time are that everyone is safe and secure.” He added, “We will continue to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety and security of our service members, our civilians, their families and our facilities.”

Only we can prove that we have the grace and the character and the common humanity to end this kind of senseless violence, to reduce fear and mistrust within the American family, to set an example for our children.”

It was a moving call to bring this violence-plagued feuding country together -- people respecting the police, and police respecting the people, black, brown, red, yellow and white.

Kashmir: Why are young people protesting?

Indian-administered Kashmir is witnessing some of its most violent protests.

More than 30 people have been killed and hundreds more injured in clashes with security forces in the past week following the killing of popular rebel leader Burhan Wani, 22.

After Wani's death, young people, who constitute the largest chunk of Kashmir's population, have taken to throwing stones in protest on the streets and using social media to tell their stories.

Demonstrations continue despite heavy a security presence and a shutdown of mobile Internet and phone services.

Al Jazeera went to the streets of Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, to meet some of those involved.

Mike Flynn: ‘Americans Are Fed Up With the Bullshit’

Americans fed up with the bullshit they've been fed for many years. They want the truth.

Flynn: This is where I think the world has misread Donald Trump. He has no intention to step away without examining all relationships that we have. His intent is to relook at the way we are organized globally, where the US is sort of expected to be a global leader, but relook at these alliances and these charters that we are under to make sure that they are still viable for the 21st century. It doesn’t mean that President Trump comes into office and NATO goes away. But I would say that NATO as a political alliance does need to be relooked at in terms of everything — resourcing, capabilities.

Zero Days

Alex Gibney’s ZERO DAYS is a documentary thriller about the world of cyberwar. For the first time, the film tells the complete story of Stuxnet, a piece of self-replicating computer malware (known as a “worm” for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own) that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target. ZERO DAYS is the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora’s Box of cyberwarfare. Beyond the technical aspects of the story, ZERO DAYS reveals a web of intrigue involving the CIA, the US Military's new cyber command, Israel's Mossad and Operations that include both espionage and covert assassinations but also a new generation of cyberweapons whose destructive power is matched only by Nuclear War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I caught this documentary on cable last night. On the negative side, Gibney shows a very pro-Israel anti-Iran slant in the telling of the story, suggesting that Israel was right to do what they did with STUXNET because Iran was building a bomb, and even including the now discredited quote from Ahmadinejad about wiping Israel off of the map.

On the positive side, it is an in-depth telling of the story of the development of STUXNET by NSA, GCHQ, and Israel as the first of a new breed of cyber weapons that can actually cause harm in the real world. I don't want to give the story away, but it reveals that the only reason STUXNET was discovered at all was a reckless push to increase its aggressiveness, which called attention to its existence.

And recall from this posting of Ian Greenhalgh’s article yesterday, I “got” that it was not a coincidence that it occurred the same day as the 9-11 28-pages release, and that the Turkey event may very well have been (at least in part) an attempted “attention diverter” from that. I wrote:

What a coincidence!!! The 28-pages are released, and certainly one would expect most of the world’s public to be focused on that. Then, lo and behold, that same day, a “coup” occurs in Turkey! I’m sure there is absolutely no connection… (yeah, right)

LIDAR Scan of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex Proves Dr. Sam Osmanagich Right — Proves Dr. Robert Schoch, Zahi Hawass, Archaeology Magazine, and Wikipedia Wrong

In March 2015, a LIDAR satellite scan was made of the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids in the Visoko, Bosnia area. LIDAR (“light-radar”) scans provide a detailed topographical picture of the area scanned. ?

The first LIDAR scan image of the Visoko area, finally available as of July 6, 2016, shows clear evidence of gargantuan ancient artificial structures.

The visibly predominant features of these ancient structures are smooth pyramidal, and other, faces oriented to the cosmic north (or “true north” or “geodetic north”).

Astonishingly, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun has the best-documented orientation to the cosmic north of any pyramid on the planet thus far analyzed.

The phrase “best documented” means that the northern orientation of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is the best orientation to the cosmic north (or “true north” or “geodetic north”) of any ancient pyramid or structure whose orientation has been studied and documented.

TWA 800 - THE MAGIC WINGBOX

For the claimed center fuel tank explosion to have been the initiating event that resulted in CW-504 being at the start of the debris field, then at least two of the three main wing structural elements were broken by that event, probably all three (not to mention the thinner spars inside the tank itself). The NTSB's report actually reports that the front spar and spanwise beam #3 spars were torn loose by the supposed initiating explosion.

According to my sources at Boeing, even if the rear spar was undamaged, the loss of the two forwardsupports makes the plane unflyable! The wings will fail under the loading of level flight, let alone a high G pitch up maneuver.

This makes the claim of a zoom climb of 3000 feet following the loss of the nose not only aerodynamically impossible, but structurally impossible as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday was the anniversary of the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800 by the US Navy during tests of the Aegis-CEC system, an earlier version of which had shot down the Iranian airbus. The official story contradicts itself, claiming that what eyewitnesses thought was a missile climbing up from the surface of the ocean to hit TWA 800 was actually TWA 800 itself, zoom-climbing 3000 feet. Yet the government's own report confirms that the wings of the 747 would have already failed by that point, making it impossible for the plane to maintain level flight, let alone climb.

WATCH: CNN's Don Lemon Cuts Off Sheriff David Clarke For Speaking Too Much Truth

CNN's Don Lemon threw a fit and cut to commercial after Sheriff David Clarke said the media narrative blacks are being targeted by "racist" police is a total lie.

Speaking on Lemon's show yesterday, Sheriff Clarke asked Lemon, "When the tragedies happened in Louisiana and Minnesota, you know that twenty one black people were murdered [in black on black crime] across the United States? Was there any reporting on that?"

Lemon responded by asking him to "keep the volume down" in the name of "civility," then asked his producers to cut to commercial after Clarke told Lemon he "wished he had that message of civility for these purveyors of hate" in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Twelve Israelis Arrested By FBI, Sentenced for Conning & Bilking Elderly Victims Out of Their Life Savings

AVI AYACHE and YARON BAR, two leaders of an Israeli lottery fraud ring, were sentenced today to 13 years and 12 years in prison, respectively, on mail and wire fraud charges. All 12 members of the ring who were charged in this case have pleaded guilty. "Qualifiers" called the victims and falsely told the victims they had won a substantial cash prize, and asked them about their assets. They told the victims that to obtain the prize, they had to pay several thousands of dollars in fees and taxes. Victims who complied were typically contacted again by Shooters and induced to send additional funds, amounting to tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars. In reality, there was no lottery prize and the victims were ultimately bilked out of an estimated total of more than $8 million. The defendants even sent shipments of flowers and gift baskets to various victims in the United States in order to "congratulate" them on their purported lottery winnings.

President Of The L.A. Police Protective League: Obama "Makes Me Sick"

Asked about the recent string of police shootings, the President Of The Los Angeles Police Protective League spoke out on a local TV news broadcast. Referring to President Obama's speech following the Baton Rouge shootings, Craig Lally said "it makes me sick!" He continued with a comical Freudian slip, "where's the leaders across this company, across the country?" He continues, "I wanna know what government is doing to protect cops! The fear is that we will become too militaristic. Well guess what? We need that stuff! The anchor then shows a video that the alleged Baton Rouge killer made prior to the shooting where he says protests won't help, and that "the alpha ones, we know what its gonna take" to stop police abuse. Interestingly, the black man also decries the fact, as he puts it, that when Europeans kill their oppressors, they're heroes, but when blacks do it, they're bad.

Justice department 'uses aged computer system to frustrate Foia requests'

A new lawsuit alleges that the US Department of Justice (DoJ) intentionally conducts inadequate searches of its records using a decades-old computer system when queried by citizens looking for records that should be available to the public.

Freedom of Information Act (Foia) researcher Ryan Shapiro alleges “failure by design” in the DoJ’s protocols for responding to public requests. The Foia law states that agencies must “make reasonable efforts to search for the records in electronic form or format”.

In an effort to demonstrate that the DoJ does not comply with this provision, Shapiro requested records of his own requests and ran up against the same roadblocks that stymied his progress in previous inquiries. A judge ruled in January that the FBI had acted in a manner “fundamentally at odds with the statute”.

The demise of Sanders’ “political revolution”

Throughout the Sanders campaign, the Socialist Equality Party has welcomed the broad shift to the left that it revealed in the thinking of millions of working people and youth, while warning that the Vermont senator would inevitably disappoint his supporters.

Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign Tuesday, not with a bang but a whimper. The Vermont senator formally endorsed his rival in an undignified prostration before the Democratic Party establishment and Wall Street’s favored presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The unity rally featuring Sanders and Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, had all the spontaneity and enthusiasm of a going-out-of-business sale. The funereal atmosphere was perhaps fitting
