Finally Well Deserved Recognition for Deplorables

Public outrage over Hillary’s remarks should be overwhelming.

When the criminal Clinton cabal announces that their infamous foe and now world renowned ‘basket of deplorables’ are threats to their power establishment, you are really hearing an admission that they are losing the war of ideas.

It has long been a well established fact that psychopaths on the loony left are existing in a parallel universe, but it is relatively new just how desperate they have become since the public is waking up...

Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton – The debate

Question: What kind of foreign policy agenda can we expect?

Donald Trump is one of the most unorthodox presidential nominees in American electoral history. He is unpolished and very brash. But some of his foreign policy ideas are intriguing, even common sense. This terrifies and enrages the establishment.

The Hillary Doctrine: if elected, what kind of foreign policy agenda can we expect? Does Clinton hold an extreme view of American exceptionalism? And is she now a neoconservative?

Israel To Get 38 Billion Dollars US Aid Package — Good Idea ?

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 (UPI) — President Barack Obama‘s administration pledged the United States’ largest-ever military aid package to Israel on Wednesday — nearly $40 billion over 10 years.

Philip Giraldi joins today’s Liberty Report to break down the agreement and discuss whether it really does, as Rice claims, benefit US security.

A "memorandum of understanding" committing the US to providing $38 billion in military aid to Israel over the next ten years.

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?!?

I'm getting geopolitical whiplash, upon reading this; talk about carrying a grudge, for Pete's sake!!

This is outright gas sliding

Fake polls and propaganda.

Continue to expose the sinister Hillary Clinton campaign for what it is: a wildly failed attempt by a handful of elites to seize power. They were hoping for a home run by rigging the corporate media, instead they’ve struck out – word of Hillary Clinton’s poor health and erratic behavior has gone mainstream, and will continue to do so.

Vicious warmongers in favor of surveillance, wars for profit, and centralized financial authorities.

Pentagon And CIA at War in Syria

What a mess! In the crazy Syrian war, US-backed and armed groups are fighting other US-backed rebel groups. How can this be?

It is so because the Obama White House had stirred up war in Syria but then lost control of the process. When the US has a strong president, he can usually keep the military and intelligence agencies on a tight leash.
But the Obama administration has had a weak secretary of defense and a bunch of lady strategists who are the worst military commanders since Louis XV, who put his mistress, Madame de Pompadour, in charge of French military forces during the Seven Year’s War.

As a result, the two arms of offensive US strategic power, the Pentagon and CIA, went separate ways in Syria. Growing competition between the US military and militarized CIA broke into the open in Syria.

Fed up with the astounding incompetence of the White House, the US military launched and supported its own rebel groups in Syria, while CIA did the same.

The Tide is Turning: The Official Story Is Now The Conspiracy Theory — Paul Craig Roberts

The question is: who are the real conspiracy kooks, the majority who disbelieve the official lies or the minority who believe the official lies?

In a few days it will be the 15th anniversary of 9/11, and this November 13 will be the 53rd anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. These two state crimes against democracy destroyed American democracy, accountable government, and the Constitution’s protections of civil liberty.

Years after the damage done by these events the American people no longer believe the official stories. Neither does the government, but the government will never validate the distrust that Americans now share of “their” government by acknowledging the truth.

The Importance for the USA to Join Hands with the World

If America truly believes in its “exceptionalism,” then it should, with supreme confidence, enter the world as an active participant, and not as a spoiled “bully in the school yard.”

Now that former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski has openly declared that the United States of America should abandon their quest for global hegemony, American leadership should take heed and amend their foreign policy objectives accordingly.

Official audit: ‘Lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression Dept’ (so-called ‘Defense’) claims they ‘lost’ $6.5 trillion (~$65,000 per US household). Americans: prefer arrests for OBVIOUS crimes in war, money, lying, or dictatorial rogue US state?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The US Department of Defense (DoD) Inspector General issued an audit report last week reporting DoD claims to have “lost” $6.5 trillion in year-end accounting, with $2.8 trillion “missing” in the last fiscal quarter alone (euphemistically termed “unaccounted”).

$6.5 trillion equals:

~$65,000 per US household.
Embezzling a billion dollars from a US military project 6,500 times.
Embezzling a billion dollars every day for 18 years.
An Inspector General is supposed to be head of an independent and non-partisan auditing organization to discover and investigate waste, embezzlement, and fraud. They are supposed to act as “watchdogs” to ensure government agencies are transparent and lawful, with power to subpoena and take testimonies under oath.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Jul 07 12:30

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

First and foremost it was not so much a foreign policy disaster as a flat-out war crime for which Blair as chief perpetrator must be tried. And so must his Cabinet, who carry collective responsibility.

Trump Hammers On Brexit, “Independence Day” And Repudiation Of Rule By The Global Elite

Globalists and Neocons Prove Incapable of Understanding Reality

If Trump wants to put America first, he needs to start firing the Neoconservatives and their lackeys from the White House and putting them on trial for making Americans look really bad.

Rather than listening and learning and modifying their actions, the ruling elites stick to “more of the same.” This process clearly emblematized by the endless procession of Bushes and Clintons replacing each other in the positions of power.

Victory Is Possible – Israel Shamir

Brexit is a game-changing event. Now Euro-sceptics all over Europe has got fresh wind in their sails.

Few people expected the positive outcome of Brexit referendum. Among other doubters, I expected the UK government will borrow a trick from the Clinton collection, and proclaim the "Bremain" hath it.

The political establishment of both leading parties, the Tories and Labour, wished to remain in the cosy lap of the EC. This was the will of the Bank of England, and of the City of London; of the powerful media lords, of the creative minority of yuppies, of cosmopolitan intellectuals.

Trump as the ‘Relative Peace Candidate’

The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.”

Hillary Clinton has shown no real remorse over her support for neocon “regime changes,” aggressive wars and belligerence toward Russia, leaving the oft-obnoxious Donald Trump as the relative peace candidate, says John V. Walsh.

Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgement of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.

Hillary Clinton: Electing a Foreign Spy for President?

As Sherlock Holmes would say, “We are entering in deep waters, Watson”.

The executive leadership now faces the problem of how to deal with a traitor, who may be the Democratic Party nominee for US President. How do the executive leadership and intelligence agencies back a foreign spy for president, who has been deeply compromised and can be blackmailed? This may explain why the FBI, NSA, and CIA hesitate to press charges; hesitate to even seriously investigate, despite the obvious nature of her offenses. Most of all it explains why there is no indication of the identity of Secretary Clinton’s correspondents in the various reports so far available.

Obama’s Cuban Ambitions as Seen by Cubans Themselves

For half a century, Americans have been largely unable to visit Cuba and have had to rely on the US government and media for an understanding of the political, social and economic conditions there. What has been described as the “American Berlin Wall” has been successful in providing Americans with quite an inaccurate view.

Throughout this period, those Cubans who exited the island in 1959 (and their descendants) have maintained a propaganda programme that, rightly or wrongly, reflected their desire to return to Cuba and to once again rule it. Additionally, they’ve contributed regularly to both the primary US political parties in order to assure that the blockade would be maintained and that Americans would be kept out until such time as the island could be re-taken.

It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.

In Cuba, the ballet is something of a national treasure. The dancers recruited into Alicia Alonso’s storied company Ballet Nacional de Cuba, for example, reportedly make more money than doctors and enjoy a level of fandom reserved only for pop stars in the United States. The Cuban government not only funds ballet training but also subsidizes tickets to ballet performances. Lovers of Cuban dance like to say the adoration and skill is in their DNA.

Rafael Cruz, A Pro-Batista, CIA Connected Cuban In Exile? Really Ted?

In an article written by David Zephyr, he has exposed the connection between Rafael Cruz the father of candidate Ted Cruz and the Bush oil connection. Interesting facts have arisen connecting him to Lee Harvey Oswald. Interesting that Mr. Zephr has discovered the CIA connection that many of us have suspected of Rafael Cruz for a long time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ted Cruz likes to claim his father was an anti-Castro Cuban exile, but that claim is destroyed by the photos taken of Lee Harvey Oswald handing out pro-Castro leaflets in New Orleans, in which Ted Cruz's father is shown.

Apr 12 20:14


Webmaster addition: This document is suspicious, in that it claims Ted Cruz was conceived in March 1969 but born in December 1970, a gestation period of 20 months!

But apparently one of the documents missing from the public record is the marriage certificate for Ted Cruz' parents. If Ted was born before his parents actually married, or his parents married before their divorces to their prior spouse were finalized, then under the US law he is NOT a US citizen by birth but must be made a citizen through the naturalization process.

US Lectures Cuba on Human Rights Across From Own Torture Dungeon

By Tony Cartalucci

US President Barrack Obama paid what the Western media hailed as a “historic” visit to Cuba, after decades of isolation imposed upon the island nation by the US and its Western allies.

While many claimed it was a sign of hope for US-Cuban relations, it could equally be equated with similar feigned rapprochements with nations like Syria and Libya, both of which were first offered false peace deals before betrayal and both of which have now been destroyed by years of US-backed proxy war, with Libya’s government being overthrown and its leader along with three generations of his family virtually exterminated by US-NATO military operations.

And as if to prove President Obama’s advocates wrong, the US president used this “historic” visit to publicly humiliate Cuban President Raul Castro regarding alleged human rights abuses the US claims are regularly carried out against “political prisoners.”...

As we watch President Obama being warmly welcomed in Cuba, we think back to the secret, shameful things done in the past by the US to undermine Castro, not counting the various assassination attempts. This report lays bare one of the more hair-raising schemes.

On March 13, 1962, the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed to President John F. Kennedy that the United States attack itself — and blame Cuba. This is what is known as a “false flag” event.

This proposal came at the request of the CIA’s Edward Lansdale who was in charge of the anti-Castro project.

Obama plans to kick-start U.S. business with Cuba on Havana trip next week

Obama will arrive with a delegation that includes the CEOs of Xerox and Marriott International to help nudge along deals in the works. U.S. airlines are set to resume commercial flights to Cuba this summer, a New York-based research facility is working with Cuban researchers on a lung cancer vaccine, and an Alabama-based tractor company has won approval to build a factory near Havana. Hotel chains Marriott and Starwood could announce their own deals during the president's trip, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. And AT&T could join Sprint and Verizon in providing roaming services on the island.

Cementing as many of those deals now is key, given Congress' current refusal to lift the trade embargo against Cuba and Republican presidential candidates' opposition to Obama's opening with the Cuban government, said Ralph Patino, who is nearing a deal with the Cuban government to open a building products and supply store outside Havana.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We're doing business with Vietnam, for Pete's sake; a country at which we were at war!!

Not lifting the trade embargo with Cuba makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, except to punish Cuban leadership, and the Cuban people. As to the leadership; both Raul and Fidel Castro are older gentlemen, and will not be around forever.

Cruz and Rubio Eligibility Lawsuit Set for 11 AM, Friday March 4th in Florida

The initial narrative had Rubio’s parents fleeing Cuba’s Castro in 1959. It was later revealed they’d arrived in America in 1956 instead. Rubio’s parents did not become US citizens until nearly twenty years later, several years after Rubio’s 1971 birth. Their status as Cuban citizens, not US citizens, at the time of Marco’s birth prompted his inclusion in the Florida, Vermont, Arkansas and Indiana suits and challenges above.

The historical and legal record demonstrates that in order to be a citizen by virtue of birth alone, one must be born in the country to parents who were its citizen at the time of the child’s birth. Indeed, a natural born citizen is a child born or reputed born in the country to parents who were its citizens at the time of the child’s birth.”

Seeking More Cold War with Cuba

The neocons who dominate Official Washington speak most loudly through their flagship newspaper, The Washington Post, almost always seeking confrontation rather than cooperation in addressing the world’s problems, such as Cold War-era hostility toward Cuba, as ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar explains. A Washington Post editorial proclaims in its headline, “Failure in Cuba,” with a bank head that declares, “Mr. Obama’s opening is not leading to positive change.” One should not expect anyone, including editorial boards, who have been opposed to a policy departure to change their own position quickly. But what the Post has to say about Cuba illustrates some unfortunate tendencies that have warped policy debate on other issues as well. The biggest problem is the failure to ask, “What’s the alternative?” And to ask as well, “Why should the alternative be expected to bring any better results, especially on the very criteria on which the policy at hand is being criticized?”

USA incidentally sends Hellfire to Cuba

The US authorities are trying to retrieve an air-to-surface missile that was erroneously delivered to Cuba in 2014. According to Vesti.Ru, the US military command sent a Hellfire missile without a warhead to Spain for NATO exercises in 2014. After the maneuvers, the missile was delivered to Paris. Afterwards, for some unknown reason, the missile was flown to Havana aboard an Air France transport flight. It took Lockheed Martin quite a lot of time to realized that the missile had been sent to a wrong address. Currently, the State Department is trying to understand whether the case should be categorized as negligence or espionage. The US is concerned that Cuba may deliver secret technology to North Korea, China or Russia. If it was a fault of logistics, Lockheed Martin will have to be held accountable for that. Under the laws of the United States, the corporation may face a multi-million dollar fine for violating the ban on exports of military or dual-use products.

Cuban ‘Hellfire’ missile crisis: US wants rocket back after it was sent to Havana by mistake

Washington is having to work to retrieve a dummy US Hellfire missile used for NATO training in Spain after it was reportedly sent to Cuba by mistake. America fears that Cubans may steal the advanced technology.

The mishap occurred in 2014, as the missile was mistakenly shipped from Europe to Cuba, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Although the device can’t do any damage, as it doesn’t contain any explosives, there are fears the Cuban government could share the technology with foreign powers, such as North Korea or China. A US official with knowledge of the situation, who wanted to remain anonymous, confirmed the mishap to AP.

Castro points to significance of treaty with Russia on construction of power units in Cuba

Cuban leader Raul Castro has described as strategic the agreement signed with Russia this year, under which Russia grants a loan to Cuba to the tune of €1,2 billion for the construction of the power-generating units at the Maximo Gomes and Este Habana thermal power plants.

The policy of unilateral sanctions against Russia and the narrowing NATO circle near its borders are favorable for creating the situation of greater instability in the region, Raul Castro says

Cuban foreign minister urges U.S. to stop enticing Cubans’ illegal migration

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez has called on the U.S. stop enticing illegal and far from secure migration of Cuban citizens. He made the appeal on Monday after a speech at a session of the National Assembly’s commission for foreign affairs. "I’m convinced the politicizing of U.S. migration policies towards Cuba should stop and the enticing of illegal, unsafe and sporadic emigration should stop," he said. Rodriguez said Cuba insists, among other things, on a proper and rapid solution of the problem of more than 7,000 Cuban migrants stranded in Costa Rica. Neighboring countries refused to let them into their territories earlier. The U.S. has a law under which the Cuban citizens who reach the U.S. territory, albeit totally illegally, get the right to receiving permanent residents’ permits under a shortened procedure. In addition, they are entitled to privileges and discounts. The number of Cuban migrants arriving in the U.S. has gone up steeply this year.

Erdogan Charges Sarin Gas Smuggling Whistle-blower MP with Treason

“Chemical weapons materials are being brought to Turkey and are being put together in Syria in ISIS camps, which was known as Iraqi Al-Qaeda at that time.” Erdem noted that the chemicals used for the production of weapons did not originate from Turkey. “All basic materials are purchased from Europe. Western institutions should question themselves about these relations. Western sources know very well who carried out the sarin gas attack in Syria,” Erdem told RT.

Britain Dive-Bombs into Another Disastrous War

British addition of more warplanes to the already-crowded Syrian conflict is wholly wrong, just as the Americans and French are. Their underlying criminal objectives of regime change preclude them from bringing any good to the situation.

The Nuremberg Principles

Can you smell the putrid aroma of bloody hypocrisy emanting from Foggy Bottom!

The main legal principles from the Nuremberg Trials were later declared general principles of international law by the United Nations: the “Nuremberg Principles.” With these principles, in 1950 the international community of nations demanded for the first time that crimes against international law should no longer go unpunished. From now on, no one should be above the law. The Nuremberg Trials and Nuremberg Principles thus laid the foundation for modern international criminal law.

Earlier his year, officer Christopher Kohrs, 38, was deemed “Hot Cop of Castro” and quickly became an internet celebrity. Kohrs was portrayed on social media as the good looking hero cop from San Francisco with an impeccable record. But this weekend, all that would change. According to a San Francisco Police Department news release, officer Kohrs rammed his Dodge Charger into two men who were crossing near Broadway and Montgomery streets in the city’s North Beach neighborhood.

Meet the man who funds ISIS: the son of Turkey’s President, Bilal Erdogan

The son of Turkey’s president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words.

Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said “a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say:

“We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

A Feast of Scandal – Justin Raimondo

We’re grateful for and to Patrick J. Fitzgerald, whose existence proves that the old America yet lives.

We have a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving

I’m thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving that it’s going to take me an entire column just to adequately describe them. Indeed, I’m already so loaded down with gifts that I don’t need Christmas. My cup runneth over! For an old libertarian “isolationist” like me this holiday season is a bountiful time, one that yields so much that it seems like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and my birthday all rolled into one. Take a gander at this wonderful cornucopia of plenty:

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.
