Huma Abedin worked at a radical Muslim journal for a dozen years

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.

Well, she got it half right!

Cashing in: The countries offering rewards for medals

Having a gold medal placed around their neck while their national anthem is played is what we are told every athlete at the Olympic Games aspires to.

But with countries racing to be first in the medal table, some nations have decided that winning for winning's sake may just not be enough to induce athletes to give their all.

Some are offering cash bonuses to medal winners while others are offering incentives ranging from apartments to cars.

The Shameful Foundation of the Clintons' Power

The stated mission of the Clinton Foundation, set up at the end of Bill Clinton's second term in the White House, is to "alleviate poverty, improve global health, strengthen economies, and protect the environment."

But far more important to its operations is the Clinton Foundation's unstated mission: to further entrench the already formidable power of the Clinton family.

For more than two decades, both Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have lived very public lives ensconced in the upper echelons of America's political establishment. Since its founding in 2001, the Clinton Foundation served as a bridge between Bill Clinton's administration and Hillary Clinton's drive to conquer the White House again.

Sheriff Glenn Palmer makes his own rules in Grant County

The Oregonian is going after this Sheriff because he supports the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution in general,but mainly because they see him as friendly to freedom! The Oregonian is absolutely the dregs. As biased as Huff and Puffpo!

Over 16 years, Palmer has used his position in ways big and small to further a personal agenda – from allowing his own needs to trump emergencies to directing his patrol staff to ignore violations of laws governing private gun sales. He has drawn a fervent following by repeatedly challenging federal authority over forestlands.

FIRST THE DNC, THEN DARTH SOROS, NOW IT’S THE ...

A Russian hack of Darth Soros makes eminent sense, and even more sense, than on the DNC. Soros' role, especially since his emails were released, in the Ukrainian mess, is well-known, as is Russia's outlawing of NGO groups (such as Soros'). From the Russian point of view, such groups are nothing but gangs, racketeering operations, and front groups for "revolutionary" activities enjoying the protection of western law, governments, and powerful patronage. In this context, a Russian hack of the NSA to send messages also makes sense.

Obama Insults LA Flood Victims With Written Warning

Refusing to cut short his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard wasn’t the only thing Obama did to offend the flood victims of Louisiana.

As the people of Louisiana have come together in their loss, and struggled to rescue their neighbors, house and feed those who are displaced from their homes, the Obama administration has put out a 16-page list of guidelines, warning Louisiana of “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin.”

The guidelines “highlight the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts.”

SAUDI JETS STRIKE YEMEN’S CAPITAL DURING 100,000 STRONG RALLY IN SUPPORT OF HOUTHIS (VIDEO)

Fighter jets from the Saudi-led coalition hit the Yemeni capital of Sanaa during a massive rally that attracted some 100,000 pro-Houthi rebels and sympathizers of ex-President Abdullah Saleh.

Tens of thousands of people rallied in Sanaa’s central square on Saturday in a powerful display of support for the Shiite Houthi rebels and Saleh. Demonstrators cheered a recently established Supreme Political Council that includes representatives of the Houthi movement, as well as supporters of Saleh.

The huge gathering also denounced Saleh’s successor, Mansur Hadi, who fled the country last year and is seeking reinstatement with military backing from Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US-enabled Saudi military continues to commit horrific war crimes, and apparently, the US government and military is just fine with it; for them, the end - the reinstatement of the Al-Hadi government - justifies the means, which has generally translated into the slaughter of civilians

I never imagined, in my wildest dreams, as I was growing up, that some day, the United States of America could ultimately be characterised as follows:

"The United States of America: a proud partner in war crimes!"

To the people of Yemen: the people of the United States have utterly no control over the government which allegedly represents them.

And to the Saudi Government, the House of Saud, and the Saudi military, I would like to share the following quote from the Qur'an: Chapter 17, Verse 7":

"If you do good, you do good to yourselves. (likewise)
If you do evil, you do evil to yourselves."

You are NOT on the right side of history with this war, and do NOT have the high moral ground.

CASINO TYCOON SHELDON ADELSON LAUNCHES MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR EFFORT TO BOOST ISRAEL'S IMAGE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES

The effort kicked off this last semester at six California campuses, including UCLA, UC Irvine and San Jose State University, and will expand to 20 more college campuses this fall.

The Adelsons and other supporters of Israel are alarmed by the precipitous growth in young Americans’ support for Palestinians. A Pew Research Center poll in May found that 27% of millennials now sympathize more with Palestinians, up from 9% in 2006 — while their generation’s support for Israel has declined in the same period from 51% to 43%.

A main cause, Israel supporters say, is the mushrooming BDS campus movement. In the last four years, student governments at eight of nine UC undergraduate campuses have voted to support the campaign.

“It’s the No. 1 nonmilitary threat to Israel and the Jewish people,” David Brog, executive director of the new Adelson-funded task force, said of BDS. “Our goal is to change the younger generation from neutral, if not opposed to, Israel to support of Israel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I rather pity Mr. Adelson, in this quixotic exercise; because, and particularly through the independent media, the truth will out.

Because the cold, stark reality, of what Israel has become in the 21st century, is a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons.

Fact: Israel imprisons Palestinian children for crimes they may not have committed:

The Palestinian children – alone and bewildered – in Israel's Al Jalame jail

Palestine: Israeli Police Abusing Detained Children

Number of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons soars

Fact: Israel consistently throws Palestinians out of their homes to give the homes to Israeli settlers.

Israeli police evict Palestinian family from East Jerusalem home, give property to settlers for new settlement

Israel’s Land Grab in East Jerusalem

Israel to demolish 14 Palestinian homes to expand settlements

3. Settlers routinely attack Palestinian homes, injuring or killing the residents, and rarely are charges filed against them.

Israeli settler violence

Israeli settlers attack West Bank farms

Settlers attack West Bank farmer twice a week

Jordan Valley settlers farm private Palestinian land while owners are barred from entering - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2013/01/settlers-palestinian-entering/#sthash.F9TyZUIq.dpuf

4. The IDF routinely shoots, wounds, and kills Palestinians against whom no charges have been filed.

Palestinian youth was shot 9 times ‘accidentally,’ Israeli army says

Rare indictment against IDF soldiers for killing Palestinian minor

12-yo Palestinian boy killed during clashes with Israeli troops near Jerusalem

I didn't have to "cherry pick" these headlines; they tumbled out of my search engine, with an astonishing, and awful, velocity.

And unless Adelson is able to change the behaviour of Israel, to prevent these atrocities from happening, then the BDF movement is going to pick up velocity, and mass, until Israel will have virtually no trading partners, and no people, or entities, willing to invest in Israel, whatsoever.

Israel's problem here is that it is the behaviour of the Israeli government and military which has created BDS.

Louisiana Governor Tells Republicans To Sit Down And Shut Up About Obama

OFFICIALS CHARGED WITH POISONING FLINT WATER MAY AVOID PROSECUTION BECAUSE OF LEGAL LOOPHOLE

The prosecution of current and former state of Michigan employees for their role in Flint’s lead-contaminated water crisis likely will face an early test over whether one of the most serious charges can even be levied against the middle- and lower-level government officials.
All eight workers charged so far, five from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and three with the Department of Health and Human Services, face a misconduct in office charge — a felony that can carry a five-year prison term. The cases are in the early stages of prosecution.

But there is no statute clearly defining official misconduct. Rather, it is a common law offense based on judicial decisions and a doctrine whose origins trace back centuries to England.

The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled that misconduct in office applies only to “public officers,” not all government workers.

ONE OF THE WORST PHARMACEUTICAL DISASTERS IN HISTORY IS STILL RELEVANT TODAY

One of the worst drug disasters in history is unfolding right before our eyes.

DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen that was given to pregnant women from 1940 through the early 1970s. DES was touted as a “wonder drug” that would prevent miscarriage and morning sickness. It was only after millions of women and fetuses were exposed to DES that it was recognized that DES was causing deadly cancers in both the women who took it and the children exposed to it in-utero. According to The Wonder Drug Movie, a documentary about DES:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: when a doctor is propagandized that something is great for their patients, and most probably will cause no irrevocable harm, they are brainwashed into believing it, because of their background, and only know about that drug from the circulars handed to them by very attractive pharmaceutical representatives.

Pharmaceutical companies are generally headed by people whose conscience has been surgically removed, and where the watchwords are "Profits Uber Alles."

So when you see an advert on TV about some product, but then hear the horrific potential side effects, usually at the end of the commercial, ask yourself; where will this product be in 20 years?!?

Democratic Louisiana Governor Backtracks, Praises Trump For Flood Visit

On Thursday night, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA) released a statement suggesting that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump‘s hastily-organized Friday visit to Baton Rouge was nothing but a photo op, but on Sunday morning, he backtracked on that criticism and praised Trump for his visit. In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on State of the Union, Gov. Bel Edwards insisted that he hadn’t criticized Trump, and thanked Trump and his running mate for visiting his state on Friday:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump did not take any media with him down to Louisiana, but the corporate media followed him, looking for any opportunity to undermine the fact that Trump was there while Obama golfed and Hillary sent a tweet. The real shock for the corporate media was when they found Trump had donated an 18 wheeler truck full of needed supplies without much fanfare.

Judge seeks criminal contempt charges against Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Henry Lowendorf: What we saw in Syria goes against everything we read in the United States

“When you go to Syria, which I did last month, the popularity of the government and the Syrian Arab Army is rampant. It's not out of some dream fantasy. It comes obviously from the government and the army being the only thing between living a secular life on the one hand and the hatred and violence of ISIS and the various other terrorist groups underwritten by the terrorist Saudis and US and their allies on the other. The refugees who don't leave Syria do not flee to the terrorist side, they flee to the government side, in huge numbers. So would all of us in similar circumstances. Syrians do not want their country turned into Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, or any of the other countries the US has liberated.”

It would appear that, soon, we shall not be able to say certain things without someone being offended and fifteen hours of groveling apologies will be necessary (and not accepted without accompanying checks, cash, and money orders) in order to appease the angry watchdogs of political ultra-correctness. I would guess we shall have to delete an entire color from the English lexicon to ensure that word isn’t accidently applied to phrases that might offend someone.

Sailor Denied ‘Clinton Deal’, Gets 1 Year in Prison for 6 Photos of Sub

A former Navy machinist mate who admitted taking photos inside a nuclear submarine was sentenced to a year in prison Friday, with a federal judge rebuffing a request for probation in light of authorities deciding not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on a private email server as secretary of state. Kristian Saucier’s attorneys argued in a court filing last week that Clinton had been “engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier” with information of much higher classification. It would be “unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid,” attorney Derrick Hogan wrote.

German Anti-Immigrant Party Leader Urges People To Arm Themselves

"People no longer feel safe, otherwise they would not be buying so many products here," a seller in North-Rhine Westphalia told Deutsche Welle in January, adding that like many of his colleagues, he has been moving "an average of three times as many alarm, gas, and signal guns as he was prior to the attacks that took place in Cologne on New Year's Eve."

Since then, the situation in Germany - and across Western Europe - has only grown more perilous, as a result of three ISIS-inspired fatal attacks by refugees over the past several weeks, which has led to not only the most recent collapse in the polls of Angela Merkel but the ongoing ascent of Germany's anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

More than half of Clinton Foundation’s major donors would be barred under new rule

More than half of the Clinton Foundation’s major donors would be prevented from contributing to the charity under the self-imposed ban on corporate and foreign donors the foundation said this week it would adopt if Hillary Clinton won the White House, according to a new Washington Post analysis of foundation donations.

The findings underscore the extent to which the Clintons’ sprawling global charity has come to rely on financial support from industries and overseas interests, a point that has drawn criticism from Republicans and some liberals who have said the donations represent conflicts of interest for a potential president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but didn't Clinton vow to do this upon becoming the US's Secretary of State, if I recall correctly?!?

The major corporations love war, and Hillary will deliver them war.

And the country of Saudi Arabia wants military equipment, but still jails, chemically castrates, and executes its LGBTQ citizens, while allowing the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.

US sailor lands in prison for taking classified photos of nuclear sub

A federal court in the United States has sentenced a Navy sailor to a year in prison for taking photographs of classified areas inside a nuclear attack submarine while it was in port in the state of Connecticut.

Kristian Saucier, of Arlington, Vermont, pleaded guilty in May to “foolish mistake” of unauthorized detention of military information, according to the Guardian.

He was facing five to six years in prison under federal sentencing rules and regulations, but on Friday, when the verdict was announced, he got away with only one year in prison for taking six pictures of classified areas inside the USS Alexandria in 2009 when he was a 22-year-old machinist mate on the submarine.

Syrian regime jets hit Kurdish positions, even after US warning

Syrian regime jets pounded US-backed Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria for a second day, even after the US-led coalition scrambled jets to protect its military advisers working on the ground.

In another escalation of Syria's bloody conflict, warplanes from President Bashar al-Assad's regime were bombarding the city of Hasakeh -- targeting Kurdish forces that for months have worked closely with coalition military advisers helping local fighters combat the Islamic State group.

On Thursday, the United States sent fighter jets to head off air strikes conducted by regime planes and to protect coalition advisers, but the Syrian planes had left by the time they arrived.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that I have to, once again, politely remind the US government and military that the Sovereign Country of Syria does not have to do ANYTHING the US government or military orders them to do, because it is THEIR COUNTRY, and not ours.

Russia was invited to take care of the jihadists by Syrian President al-Assad; the US government has not been invited to do so.

Students Fight Back Against Political Correctness - The Rise Of "Cultural Libertarianism"

In both the United States and the United Kingdom, conservative and libertarian viewpoints have endured censorship on the Internet and on college campuses.

This has given rise to a new generation of animated and impassioned students keen on partaking in what’s been aptly described as the “cultural libertarian” movement.

Young millennials engaged in this movement come from a variety of backgrounds but are able to unite based on a fervent disdain for those that believe there are boundaries to what’s deemed “acceptable” speech - a hatred of authority; and a love of freedom and mischief.

As a conservative writer and student at King’s College London, I have been actively campaigning against political correctness.

Ryan Bundy is being tortured. Multnomah County jail is notorious for dead and injured inmates!

Ryan Bundy is in Solitary Confinement until after his trial. This means that he will have limited opportunities to prepare for defending his freedom. How did this happen?

The FBI agents are already under investigation for lying during that incident. They claimed that they did not fire their weapons. However, it has been shown that there were two bullet casings that were illegally removed from the scene. All of OSP’s shots have been accounted for, therefore the shots seem to have come from the FBI.

Bundy has maintained that he does not give permission to State or Federal authorities to remove the evidence from his arm. He has said that he is willing to have it removed, however, he has certain conditions under which he will agree, including having an independent forensic analysis done. The Federal authorities refuse these terms.

Publicly Funded NPR Follows the Left’s Lead, Closes Comments Sections

Publicly funded National Public Radio has announced that it will be closing its comments sections in a bid to “move the conversation to social media,” following the lead of many left-wing news sites in doing so.
In a blog post by NPR public editor Elizabeth Jensen, she said that although the decision is “sure to upset a loyal core of its audience,” the company would now prefer to “let social media pick up the slack.”

Scott Montgomery, the managing editor for NPR digital news cited the reason for the move as the company’s need to engage more in social media, saying that NPR has “reached the point where we’ve realized that there are other, better ways to achieve the same kind of community discussion around the issues we raise in our journalism.”

WHO MANUAL DIRECTING "AUTHORITIES" ON HOW TO RESPOND TO VACCINE DENIERS IN PUBLIC

The endlessly increasing vaccine push on the public, at the behest of pharmaceutical companies, can be looked at as nothing more than a psychological operation (PSYOP). From the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) comes the 2016 "Best Practice Guidance 1st Edition: How to Respond to Vocal Vaccine Deniers in Public". From this guide parents and communities will understand how to see through the simplistic messaging maneuvers and counter the ongoing public PSYOP. The WHO's guiding document opens on page one with the following statement:

"This guidance document provides basic broad principles for a spokesperson of any health authority on how to respond to vocal vaccine deniers.The suggestions are based on psychological research on persuasion, on research in public health, communication studies and on WHO risk
communication guidelines."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no science denier, or anti-vaxxer; having said that, however, I have found some very effective ways of enhancing my wellness which do not involve conventional medical treatment.

Trust me; I would never be a Christian Scientist with appendicitis; but understanding something about nutrition and wellness has kept me in reasonably good shape, at 67, which is a real gift at this age.

I would encourage all of our readers to do the due dilligence, and educate themselves about the power of nutrition to augment health.

When I have friends locally who have just had a really lousy health diagnosis, I encourage them to have a nutritional consult at a medical center under 7th-Day Adventist management.

As ovolacto-vegetarians, these people have health statistics that are, generally, off the chart, in terms of great health outcomes. They have learned to use food as a weapon against disease, and they have my complete and utter respect for having done so.

Twelve hours ago, Fagner Dos Santos ate his last meal: two hardened bread buns and coffee. For much of the past decade, the 33-year-old has been battling drug addiction while living on the streets of Rio. When he eats at all, it’s usually at a grungy soup kitchen or after picking through the trash.

U.S. DEFENSE CONTRACTORS TELL INVESTORS RUSSIAN THREAT IS GREAT FOR BUSINESS

The escalating anti-Russian rhetoric in the U.S. presidential campaign comes in the midst of a major push by military contractors to position Moscow as a potent enemy that must be countered with a drastic increase in military spending by NATO countries.

Weapon makers have told investors that they are relying on tensions with Russia to fuel new business in the wake of Russian’s annexation of Crimea and modest increases in its military budget.

In particular, the arms industry — both directly and through its arsenal of hired-gun, think-tank experts and lobbyists – is actively pressuring NATO member nations to hike defense spending in line with the NATO goal for member states to spend at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1. Russia did not annex Crimea; after the putsch in Kiev in 2014, which threw Yanukovich, the duly elected President, under the proverbial bus, and anointed Poroshenko as Ukraine's President, Crimean authorities understood that there was no legitimate government in Kiev. They therefore held a free and fair referendum, to decide if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, post putsch, or petition the Russian Federation to join. In an overwhelming vote, Crimeans decided to to petition the Russian Federation to join. The Russian Federation accepted this request. Russia did absolutely nothing wrong here.
2. It is very alarming, but perfectly predictable to me, that weapons manufacturers and banks can smell money in the bloodshed which is almost surely to come from any kind of US/Russian military conflict regarding Ukraine, as the demonisation of Russia, which you see in all the presstitute/whorespondent outlets, continues to escalate.

CIA WHISTLEBLOWER JEFFREY STERLING CLOSE TO DEATH IN FEDERAL PRISON

Jeffrey Sterling, one of the most recent victims of the U.S. government’s war on whistleblowers, may be at risk of dying in a Colorado prison.

In an interview published Tuesday in The Colorado Independent, the wife of the CIA whistleblower warned that his health is failing due to inadequate medical care at FCI Englewood, the federal prison where he is serving a sentence of three-and-a-half years.

“I’m concerned my husband may die,” Holly Sterling told the Independent’s Corey Hutchins. “I’m extremely concerned.”In May 2015, Jeffrey Sterling was convicted on nine felony charges, including seven charges of violating the Espionage Act, for revealing information about Operation Merlin, a secret CIA operation carried out under President Bill Clinton to undermine Iran’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sterling's death, through neglect, is the Federal Government's desired outcome here, as a vicious example for others who may feel morally compelled to speak out regarding the cost/benefit relationship of various of its programs.

It is no accident that for the organisation "Reporters Without Borders", the US ranks as 41st in terms of press freedoms out of 180 countries which comprise their list.

State Forcing Flood Victims to Obtain Permits Before Fixing their Homes

By Claire Bernish

Residents in South Bend, Indiana, dealing with several feet of flooding following a record-decimating rainfall now also have to deal with costly and time-consuming government red tape in order to rebuild homes and businesses — making them hapless victims of both nature and the State.

Before Hoosiers can pick up the pieces by reconstructing their property, the City of South Bend is forcing them to also pick up a building permit...

PORTLAND BANS ANTI-CLIMATE CHANGE MATERIALS IN SCHOOLS

The Portland Public School Board voted earlier this year to ban any classroom materials, including textbooks and other material purchased by the district, that cast doubt on the existence of climate change.

This new rule was passed unanimously by the board’s members, who agreed with testimony from Bill Bigelow, a former Portland teacher, when he said,

“We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”

Materials that present climate change as a theory rather than as a fact will no longer be used and, going forward, they will not be purchased by the district for students. Additionally, materials must make it clear that human activity is responsible for the rapid climate change occurring on our planet. The resolution also calls for the superintendent and staff to develop an education plan for teaching students about climate justice.

A student of Lincoln High School, Gaby Lemieux, said in testimony at the hearing,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I understand that we have to mandate the companies which produce fossil fuel to become as environmentally friendly as possible.

But we cannot stop there; the US government has got to send one little slice of the money it spends on its wars of conquest to control fossil fuel resources to create truly usable alternative energy; the kind of energy which can power a tank, or fly a plane.

That would be both logical and intelligent.

But the people desirous of banning books which don't spew the codswallop of human caused global warming are missing one critical fact; how hot, or how cold, the earth gets is primarily dependent on the sun, and it's cycles.

The predictions for winter 2016-2017 from the Old Farmer's Almanac (which has an annoying reputation for being generally correct), are as follows.

Get ready for a shift from last year! For the winter of 2016–2017, we expect temperatures to be much colder than last winter but still above normal. Winter 2017 will also feature below-normal snowfall overall; the snowy exception is the northern tier of the U.S., which can expect to be blanketed in white. Winter will be colder in much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation. Exceptions will be in a swatch from North Dakota to Maine, which will have below-normal temperatures. Most of the Pacific states will have below-normal temperatures, with above-normal temperatures in the Intermountain region and Desert Southwest. Snowfall will be above normal from southern New England and western New York southward through the Appalachians, but not in northern New England. Snowfall with also be above what’s typical from eastern Minnesota to the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan and southward to St. Louis, Missouri; and from central North Dakota westward to the Pacific. We expect below-normal snowfall in most other places that normally receive snow. Precipitation will be below normal across most of the southern two-thirds of the nation. However, precipitation will be above normal in the North, with the primary exceptions being above-normal rainfall in northern California, southern Oregon, portions of the western Lower Lakes region, and Florida. With rainfall below normal in most of California, the drought there will continue. In Canada, brace for more snow and colder-than-average temperatures throughout most parts of the country. The exceptions to the winter of white will be Manitoba, portions of Saskatchewan, and northern sections across the land. While snowfall will generally be below normal in these areas, temperatures will remain chilly

Frankly, with an 80% success rate in their predictions over the last 225 years, I would more likely place my bets on this than ANYTHING the "Warmistas" have to say.

Renewing his effort to reach out to black voters at a rally Friday evening, Trump suggested that Democratic politicians that overwhelmingly govern in America’s inner cities have failed African-Americans. Trump told the Dimondale, Michigan, crowd that “we can never fix our problems by relying on the same politicians who created our problems in the first place.

Images of Syrian Boy Remind Us of the Forgotten Victims of Permanent War

Waking Times

In the above snapshot taken this week, 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh is shown after his home in Aleppo, Syria was targeted by airstrikes and rescue crews then pulled him from the rubble. His family is dead. The video and images of Omran have gone ‘viral’ on the internet in recent days, reminding us who exactly it is who pays the price in endless, inter-generational warfare.

Webmaster addition: There are indications that this photo is a fake, to build a case for direct US invasion of Syria. The Boy is seen scratching his "wound" in the video, and considering that there is a nearby bombed house, it is suspicious that we see 15 first responders just standing there doing nothing.

GANG MEMBERS CHANT “BLACK LIVES MATTER” WHILE BEATING UP WHITE VICTIM

Gang members chanted “black lives matter” as they viciously beat up a white victim in Charleston as part of an initiation ritual, a story that has received no national media attention.

In a video posted on Facebook, Brandon Reiter relates how he was driving home before picking someone up to “help them get home”.

A woman was “frantically waving her arms on the side of the road” and Reiter offered her a ride, reports Counton2.com.

When he arrived at the destination, Reiter’s passenger stole the tip money he had on his counter and when Reiter exited the vehicle, he was immediately surrounded by two black men and had a gun put to his head.

A member of the gang known as “Blue” ordered the other gang member to shoot Reiter, before Reiter was able to snatch the gun away and run back to his truck

However, other members of the gang were waiting for him and subjected Reiter to a brutal beat down that was part of a gang initiation ritual.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How very charming.

Reiter is damned lucky to be alive.

And I can thoroughly understand why there was no major whorespondent or presstitute coverage of the incident, and that is it does not fit the narrative of white on black crime.

the US Navy’s F-35C is causing significant damage to runways upon landing -- and the Pentagon is touting this as a good thing.

The landing system causes the F-35 to land in precisely the same spot every time, tearing up the runway in short order. Normally, there is some variation in exactly where the landing hook hits, so the wear and tear on the runway is spread out over an area, but not so with the F-35. Apparently, it is the only precision feature of the F-35, and the DOD is spinning this as a positive.

Footage Of Boy In Aleppo Is Opportunistic, Vile Propaganda From Western Media

By Brandon Turbeville

It’s August, 2016 and the Western mainstream press is parading yet another injured child in front of a population of normally uncompassionate audiences in order to drum up support for some type of NATO military action against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

The picture of a little boy, seemingly injured in some type of bombing incident, sitting alone in an orange chair in the back of an ambulance, blood stains on his face and covered in dust from cracked concrete also comes in video form, footage that lasts for about two minutes, showing the boy being carried to a well-equipped ambulance (with English writing on some of the equipment). The boy’s story is also accompanied by “heart wrenching” stories from “activists” in east Aleppo alleging the crimes of the Syrian government and the horrific situation in the area...

Why Rothschild is Shifting From US Dollars to Gold, 'Other Currencies'

Rothschild has called attention to the fact that despite the policy having resulted in the rapid rise of stock markets, this growth cannot last forever as the real sector remains anemic with weak demand and deflation in many developed countries.

Meanwhile, the geopolitical situation is not getting easier: China's economic growth has slowed down, the election atmosphere in the US remains fraught and the conflict in the Middle East continues to rage on. Germany, France and the US have been subjected to terrorist attacks. To complicate matters even further the UK voted to leave the EU.

"In times like these, preservation of capital in real terms continues to be as important an objective as any in the management of your Company's assets," Lord Rothschild emphasizes.

US-Mexico Border Agents Stop 1000s Of Middle-East Immigrants With Forged Papers

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexican immigration officials have found thousands of non-Hispanic illegal immigrants crossing Mexico’s southern border to make their way to Texas. As Breitbart details, the so-called "extra-continental" immigrants enter countries as far south as Brazil and make their way to the United States, often with forged travel documents.

“The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border,” a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week. The Reuters article confirmed the Syrian nationals reported at the Mexican border with Laredo last year by Breitbart Texas’s Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz are part of this growing pattern of illegal migration.

Two More Banks Start Charging Select Clients For Holding Cash

Last weekend, when we reported that Germany's Raiffeisenbank Gmund am Tegernsee - a community bank in southern Germany - said it would start charging retail clients a fee of 0.4% on deposits of more than €100,000 we said that "now that a German banks has finally breached the retail depositor NIRP barrier, expect many more banks to follow."

Not even a week later, not one but two large banks have done just that.

Overnight, the Irish Times reported that Bank of Ireland is set to become the first domestic financial institution to pass on the ECB's negative rates to customers for placing their money on deposit with the bank. The newspaper has learned that Bank of Ireland, which is 14% owned by the State, has informed its large corporate and institutional customers that it plans to charge them a negative rate of -0.1% for deposits of €10 million or more starting in October.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF individuals are still allowed to have cash, in the near future, they will have to put it in some other place than banks, and perhaps, if they can, will be putting it into silver and gold.

That is why we are looking at banks' call for a cashless society.

Lochte apologizes over Rio 'robbery' scandal

Star US swimmer Ryan Lochte apologized to Brazil on Friday for inventing a story that he and three teammates were mugged during the Olympics, as one of them paid $10,800 to avoid charges.

The US gold medal-winning swimmers hoped to draw a line under the scandal that erupted when Lochte went public with a shocking report of how the four were mugged on their way back from a party in Rio de Janeiro.

The claim that a man posing as a police officer held them up at gunpoint early Sunday and forced them to the ground sparked a media frenzy and pushed Brazilian Olympic authorities into an embarrassed apology.

But after police declared the story was fabricated -- saying all that happened was that the swimmers were subdued by security after getting drunk and vandalizing a gas station bathroom -- the now discredited Lochte finally came clean.

Clinton’s State Department Blew $6 Billion In Contracts, And We’re About To Learn Why

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may soon have to answer questions about an estimated $6 billion in contract mismanagement, fraud and incompetence that happened under her watch at the Department of State.

Non-profit government watchdog Cause of Action Institute (CofA) filed a Freedom of Information Act request Friday for records related to a March 2014 management alert issued by the department’s Inspector General (IG).

“The total value of the contracts the [IG] reviewed exceeded $6 billion,” the CofA’s FOIA request said. “Many of these cases arose during the tenure of Secretary Hillary Clinton.” Clinton was the country’s top diplomat from January 2009 to February 2013.

The IG alert that unveiled the mismanagement was based on three investigations and two contract-related audits.

Israelis Scheming to Replace Aqsa Mosque with ‘Third Temple’: Report

The Palestinian-run International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) independent news organization carried the report on Monday, citing Israeli television channels.

Israeli Zionists claim they have the right to build a third temple in line with “scriptural prophecies” to follow the tradition of the first and second ones built in ancient times.

Back in June, Israeli Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Uri Ariel said “the first temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, the second temple in 70 CE,” adding that he wished to see a third one built.

The Israeli media, IMEMC reported, alleged that the Israeli bodies favoring the construction of the temple had received “wide political and popular support.”

These organizations explained that they are ready to bring the equipment and tools to start building the temple in the place of both the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque,” it added, citing Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any attempt to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque will result in utter catastrophe for Israel, and generate a religious war which will engulf the entire region.

But perhaps, that is the design intent of the current Israeli government.

Closing Manus Island’s Detention Centre: Australia’s Search for “Alternative Cruelties”

It all goes back to April, when the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court found the Manus Island detention facility, ostensibly directed and run by the Australian government, in breach of the PNG Constitution.

By the order of the court, “Both the Australian and Papua New Guinea governments shall forthwith take all steps necessary to cease and prevent the continued unconstitutional and illegal detention of the asylum seekers or transferees at the relocation centre on Manus Island and the continued breach of the asylum seekers or transferees constitutional and human rights.”

Unfortunately, Australian officials and law enforcement authorities across various states have shown a certain enthusiasm, even hunger, for youth detention. In the Northern Territory and Queensland, instances of brutality against juveniles in detention centres have been common and publicised of late. The zeitgeist is very much against the child in such instances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I keep wondering why the government of Australia is not working together with international adoption agencies which could, at least, give some of the children an option for a better life.

I do not at all have any resonance with the concept that illegal immigrant children should be made to "suffer" for the sins of their parents; I really thought Australia was better than this.

Ukraine may impose martial law if eastern fighting worsens: Poroshenko

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Thursday he did not rule out introducing martial law and a new wave of military mobilisation if the conflict with pro-Russian separatists worsened. Poroshenko made his comments as fresh tension with Russia over Crimea reignited fears that a fragile ceasefire deal hammered out in the Belarussian capital Minsk in February 2015 could collapse following the deadliest month of fighting in a year. “If the situation escalates in the east and in Crimea we don’t rule out the possibilities (that) we will be forced to introduce martial law and announce a (further) mobilisation,” Poroshenko said in a televised speech from the western Lviv region. Poroshenko did not make clear what introduction of martial law might mean, and whether he was talking about martial law in the whole country or only in some parts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Poroshenko is expecting a revolt from within Ukraine with which to move him out of power, and thinks martial law will be the tool for preventing that.

That is why he is pounding on alleged "Russian aggression" as the potential justification for declaring martial law.

US Targeted Killing Rules Conflate Legality and Politics

The Presidential Policy Guidance would sanction targeting a person who poses a "continuing, imminent threat," not just to "U.S. persons," but also to "another country's persons." A 2011 Department of Justice (DOJ) white paper, leaked in 2013, said that a US citizen can be killed even when there is no "clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future." This makes a mockery of the "imminence" requirement. The administration presumably sets an even lower bar for non-citizens.

There must also be "near certainty that an identified HVT [high-value terrorist] or other lawful terrorist target" is present before using lethal force against him. Yet the administration engages in "signature strikes" that don't necessarily target individuals but rather target all males of military age present in an area of suspicious activity. And the Presidential Policy Guidance does not define "high-value terrorist."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This legalistic mishmash has been engineered as "window-dressing" for the hard fact that this process has utterly no true relationship to the Law of this Land, which is very firmly routed in the concept of due process, and is denied all victims of extrajudicial assassinations.

And I have to speculate here; how long will it be before these tortured rationales lead to extrajudicial assassinations right here at home?!?

Unfortunately, were I a betting person, the short answer would be, "Not long!!"

Congress Seeks to Establish Russia as Permanent Enemy

The Cold War provided a solid generation of unfettered government growth in the US on the pretext of the Russian threat, and over the past few years American officials have relished at the new round of tensions with Russia, and the budget-busting spending it has permitted.

They’re hoping to make that permanent, with a new bill called the STAND for Ukraine Act aiming to make temporary measures imposed during Ukraine’s regime change permanent, and hamstring all future governments from a diplomatic rapprochement with Russia.

The new push centers in part on the fear that some future president might be less on-board with open-ended hostilities. Current Republican nominee Donald Trump has expressed doubt about the current acrimony, and said if elected he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW! We know there was trouble with lead in the pipes for the House of Representatives this year;

After Lead Contamination In House Office Building’s Water, Lawmakers Demand EPA ReformsBut did lead also lead to the crazy thinking in the Senate, for these people to want to permanently enshrine a state of economic war against Russia?!?

I would like to politely remind our readers, that economic wars frequently devolve into shooting wars.

It is apparent to me that the money junkies are so terrified of a potential Trump presidency, which may herald better relationships with lots of other countries, that they will do anything to prevent any kind of better relations with Russia.

And this "anything" is pretty demonstrably creepy. As reported by Boris Zilberman on May 6th of this year:

Representative Eliot L. Engel (D-NY), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) today announced that they have introduced comprehensive legislation to address the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. An additional bipartisan group of 14 members, including the bipartisan leadership of the Congressional Ukraine Caucus, joined Reps. Engel and Kinzinger to introduce the Stability and Democracy (STAND) for Ukraine Act (H.R. 5094), which clarifies the position of the United States on Russia’s illegal occupation of Crimea, tightens sanctions on Russia, and drives new innovations to provide support for Ukraine.”

Russia's alleged "illegal occupation of Crimea... never happened.

And I would politely like to remind Representatives Engel and Kinzinger that lying to the American people, in order to further a "narrative" which may ultimately lead to a shooting war against Russia,as did the Bush Administration's claim against Iraq, that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction", will not be tolerated by the American people again, ever.

Here is the actual timeline of Crimea's referendum to leave the Ukraine, which passed unanimously, and its petition to the Russian Federation to become accepted as a member:

Crimea's case for leaving Ukraine

Next, I would like to remind Representatives Engel and Kinzinger that
Victoria Nuland boasted about having undercut the legitimate government of Ukraine when Yanukovich got unceremoniously thrown under the proverbial bus, and Poroshenko was "anointed" the country's President:

American Conquest by Subversion: Victoria Nuland’s Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to “Subvert Ukraine”

And lastly, the "contributions"
of the international financier with an infinite capability for seeing potential money in the blood of mass murder, George Soros:

SOROS ADMITS RESPONSIBILITY FOR COUP AND MASS MURDER IN UKRAINE

Representatives, I am just an ordinary person; but if I can figure this out, so can most thinking Americans, and I would strongly suggest that there are more of them out there than you care to number.

This legislation is a nasty piece of work; please withdraw it from consideration.

And although I do not know, I would strongly suspect that both of you have a lot of investment in the military/industrial complex, and would benefit, financially, from such a war.

Sponsoring this legislation makes it painfully clear that you do not really serve the best interests of the people you allegedly represent, but the interests of those companies which would profit highly from a war against Russia, including the banks which loan money, to all sides, to keep the war going.
