Prepper Candidate Appeals to “Americans Deeply Concerned About What Is Coming”

While many are headed off-grid, this guy is trying to push back against the government.

Joseph Rice’s manner is a long way from militia stereotypes. The Patriot Movement leader does not present as a crazed gun nut, nor as a blowhard white supremacist. He’s genial, folksy, and matter-of-fact in laying out his views. But talk to him for long enough, and time and again the Patriot Movement leader returns to what really drives him: land.

Rice is running for Josephine county commissioner in south-west Oregon, and believes that the federal government’s current role in land management is illegitimate and even tyrannical.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Immigration Records Reveal FBI Bombshell - Important New Info on Boston Marathon Bombing

WhoWhatWhy has discovered that the FBI secretly flagged at least one of the “Boston Marathon bombers” as a terrorist threat in his immigration records, despite publicly denying it had done so.

This designation existed right up to the time the bombs went off at Boylston St. on April 15, 2013.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s heavily redacted immigration records, known as an A-file (alien file), were released in February under the Freedom of Information Act and posted online by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). FOIA has a “frequently requested record” provision where multiple request for the same record triggers a “reading room” (posted online) treatment of the records. WhoWhatWhy was one of those requesters.

For context, it’s important to note that soon after the bombing, uncomfortable questions were raised by WhoWhatWhy when it became clear the FBI had long been aware of Tsarnaev. Even some of the mainstream outlets, which almost uniformly have accepted the government’s version of events, couldn’t ignore this reality.

Dept. of Justice Investigating Hillary Email Scandal Gave $75K to Her Campaign

In what must be described as a massive conflict of interest, Hillary Clinton has amassed nearly $75,000 in campaign donations from individuals listing their place of employment as “Department of Justice.” Considering Clinton is the subject of a sweeping investigation by the FBI — for which the DoJ will determine whether or not charges will be levied — such donations seem at least somewhat dissonant.

As the Washington Free Beacon reported, of all the presidential hopefuls, Clinton received by far the heftiest sum from DoJ employees — $73,437 total, including 228 individuals contributing the maximum allowable by law, $2,700. On its own, the total could be considered substantial, but as the Free Beacon noted, Clinton’s previous presidential run wasn’t favored as heavily by DoJ employees — in 2008, she raised just $15,930 from 23 contributors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Talk about an industrial strength conflict of interest; getting money from a US Department of (alleged) Justice which is investigating Clinton?!?

I am just completely unable to get my head around the magnitude of the degree to which this stinks to high heaven!!!!

Dying Middle Class No Longer Majority in U.S.; Average Income $5k Less Than in 1999

Out of 229 metropolitan areas examined in the U.S., the number of middle class households diminished substantially in a whopping 203 of them. While there were a few towns that did well thanks to oil boons, they are few and far between.

The overall trend shows the middle class is dead.

On top of that, the average household is making eight percent less than what they did in 1999, while the cost of living has gone up dramatically since that time. Reports like this one keep saying we “haven’t fully recovered yet” from the 2008 crisis, but if you look at what’s going on out there, adding the word “yet” is just wishful thinking.

Iranian Admiral Threatens to Sink Us Ships in Persian Gulf

The US government still views Iran as a defiant regime that won’t bend to their interests, and the Iranians have no reason to believe that our government is altruistic after we provided so much clandestine support to the rebels in Syria. And frankly, they’ll probably never trust us so long as we’re allied with Saudi Arabia.

Which explains why officials with the Iranian government still like to hurl threats at the US from time to time, the latest of which comes from an Iranian admiral. On Monday, Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi asserted on state television that “Wherever the Americans look in the Persian Gulf, they will see us,” before adding “they know that if they commit the slightest mistake, we will drown their vessels in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, or the Sea of Oman.”

“Fat Activist” Claims That Thin People Are “Privileged”

However, some people who are overweight not only find society’s standards unfair, they view them as oppression. In the same tradition of the race based social justice movement that’s been spreading across college campuses, there are now “fat activists” like Virgie Tovar, who recently spoke at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.

To mark International No Diet Day (all of this is sounding very ironic for a public health school), Tovar spoke about how our “white heteronormative society” is oppressing the obese with “fat phobia.” And apparently, our sexual preferences are bigoted if they don’t include the obese. She compared this oppressive phobia with rape culture, and criticized the fit among us for their “thin privilege” (So if you bust your ass and starve yourself to lose weight, are you still privileged?).

Senate Kicks Off Debate Over Reauthorizing Controversial NSA Programs

THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE summoned a handful of cybersecurity, privacy, and national security experts on Tuesday to lay out the pros and cons of reauthorizing the law the NSA says authorizes it to collect hundreds of millions of online communications from providers like Facebook and Google as well as straight off the internet’s backbone.

The NSA spying programs PRISM and Upstream are ostensibly aimed at “foreign targets” but nevertheless scoop up a potentially vast but non-public number of communications involving innocent Americans, some of which are made accessible to domestic law enforcement agencies.

Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act of 2008, the authority cited for the programs, will sunset in December 2017. That gives privacy advocates the same kind of leverage they had in 2015, when the sunset of some Patriot Act provisions led Congress to end bulk collection of domestic phone records.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once laws like this are enacted and enforced, when it comes to domestic spying, they are more difficult to root out than is a cancer.

So, here's the deal, Director of Intelligence Clapper; I am a Christian pacifist activist, who encourages this government to create foreign and domestic policies based on logic and honest, hard-won, moral negotiations.

I see war, in general, as a lousy way to resolve geopolitical disputes.

I politely, logically point out where I think this government has gone wrong, and probably what they can do to correct it.

I never, ever advocate violence.

Does this make me, one of the most non-hurtful, gentle people you would ever meet this lifetime, a "domestic terrorist" in your eyes, because I refuse to accept the current status quo, particularly on the US's current geopolitical policies?!?

Unfortunately, I am guessing that this is the characterisation you would most likely use.

It is completely untrue, and somewhere, in your heart of hearts, you know this.

But I cannot, and will not, stop speaking out, quietly, logically and peacefully, to express my point of view; that is just not going to happen, sir.

The US government is,at this very moment, at the very dangerous precipice of creating a major world war.

This is happening because it got out of its financial depressions in the 20th century through entering the First and Second World Wars, so many of its members think this is a good idea.

However, Mr. Clapper, I would strongly, and soberly, caution the members of this government that war, against Russia, and/or China, is a really bad idea, and particularly at this moment in our history.

This is because the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing, to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

Our weapons procurement system is rife with corruption, and weapons makers pay Congressional representatives, overtly and covertly, for weapons contracts. This means that when these weapons are ultimately deployed, they are late, hideously over budget, and do not perform anywhere near to spec.

As I said earlier in this post, I abhor war; but if our military are ordered to fight, I want them to have the best weaponry possible, and the current US weapons procurement system makes that...impossible.

Saudi Military Threatens to Occupy Yemen Capital if Peace Talks Fail

Saudi Arabian Brig. Gen. Ahmed Asiri, the spokesman for the Saudi-led military coalition that has been attacking Yemen since March of 2015, today warned that if the ongoing peace talks in Kuwait fail, Saudi troops would respond with a military occupation of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

The timing of the threat is curious, as after the talks were paused last week, they made their first major progress only yesterday, with a massive prisoner exchange agreed to that officials say could free thousands of people on both sides.

Though this is still far from resolving the war, the prisoner release is a big step forward, and among Yemeni officials on both sides, there seems to be a lot more interest in continuing the talks than there had been in previous international efforts for talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps General Asiri is making this claim about establishing a Saudi military occupation in Sanaa for the following reason. As reported in on Sunday, 8 May:

A “small number” of U.S troops are deployed on the ground in Yemen to help fight the al-Qaida affiliate there that was controlling a major port city, a defense official said Friday. A Pentagon spokesman declined to say how many U.S. troops are there supporting operations led by the Yemeni military and the United Arab Emirates around the port city of Mukalla. “We have a small number of people who have been providing intelligence support,” the spokesman, Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, told reporters Friday. The U.S. troops deployed about two weeks ago and are at a “fixed location” providing intelligence support as well as “airborne [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance], advice and assistance with operational planning, maritime interdiction and security operations, medical support and aerial refueling,” Davis said. Additional U.S. support for the Mukalla operations is provided by the amphibious assault ship Boxer, which is staged off the coast of Yemen with about 4,500 Marines from the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit. The ship is providing medical support to the Emirate troops, Davis said.

OK, let me get this straight: we have an amphibious assault ship, USS Boxer, staged off the coast of Yemen, with a crew of 4,500 Marines, allegedly to provide "medical support" to Emirate troops?!?

That may be the "good reason", but is it the "real reason" for this deployment?!?

Again, let's take a look at a map of Yemen.


Mukalla creates the Southern border of Yemen; Saudi Arabia is at its Northern border.

I have to wonder if General Asiri is planning on a massive push from the Saudi Arabian side, complemented, simultaneously, by a huge US push from those 4,500 troops on the USS Boxer, from the south.

IF such a plan is being considered, it will create an unimaginable bloodbath in Yemen; but President Obama is NOT going to let the Yemenite people get away with anything remotely resembling peaceful self-determination, when that government is not to his liking.

Brazil’s Democracy to Suffer Grievous Blow Today as Unelectable, Corrupt Neoliberal is Installed

So if you’re a plutocrat with ownership of the nation’s largest and most influential media outlets, what do you do? You dispense with democracy altogether – after all, it keeps empowering candidates and policies you dislike – by exploiting your media outlets to incite unrest and then install a candidate who could never get elected on his own, yet will faithfully serve your political agenda and ideology.

That’s exactly what Brazil is going to do today. The Brazilian Senate will vote later today to agree to a trial on the lower House’s impeachment charges, which will automatically result in Dilma’s suspension from the presidency pending the end of the trial.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Brazil deserve so much better than what they will get with Temer; and that is the real tragedy of this impeachment.

Colombia Fears U.S. May Reject Peace Plan To Protect Pharma Profits

The Colombian Embassy is concerned that lowering the price of a major cancer drug may jeopardize American funding for peace talks in the South American nation, according to a leaked embassy memo.

In February, President Barack Obama committed $450 million to aid peace talks between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, a Marxist rebel group known as FARC. The money would help the Colombian government fight the illegal drug trade and retrain FARC members.

But in an April 27 memo, Colombian diplomat Andrés Flórez said he was worried the U.S. would withhold peace funding if the Colombian government lowered prices on the drug Gleevec, also sold as Glivec. The memo was first posted by the think tank Knowledge Ecology International.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember this about pharmaceutical companies; it is never really about health and care that these drugs are manufactured; it is all about the money, and preventing cheap, generic equivalents from ever getting on the market.

This article makes that painfully obvious.

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

“Oh, I love New Zealand. It’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It’s…what? What did you say?…No, that’s impossible. That couldn’t be happening. They’re doing what??”

The strategy of the New Zealand government is simple.

A series of local movements is successful. So kill them off by claiming decision-making must occur at a “higher level.” Take power out of the hands of locals.

The people can’t represent themselves. That’s dangerous. No, big government will represent the people—by squashing what the people want.

Dem Congressman: "It's far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep"

If you can believe it, there are still Americans who actually believe this country is a Democratic Republic and their vote matters.

Well according to a new book coming out in a couple weeks called The Confessions of Congressman X, our votes don’t mean jack.

The book, published by Mill City Press, claims to have been written by an anonymous Democratic Congressman as a dark and devastating tell-all of what’s really going on behind the scenes at America’s capitol.

Here are a few lines to give you an idea of what the good congressman is “confessing”:

“Most of my colleagues are dishonest career politicians who revel in the power and special-interest money that’s lavished upon them.”

“My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything.”

“Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works.”

American tanks in Putin's 'backyard': US and British soldiers join the Georgian army on two weeks of military drills - angering Russia 

The Georgian army has begun two weeks of military exercises with the United States and Britain - despite Russia's anger as American tanks rolled into its backyard.

Hundreds of soldiers gathered at the military base of Vaziani - once used by Russia, just outside the capital Tbilisi - for the opening ceremony of the exercise, dubbed 'Noble Partner 2016'.
As the sky filled with paratroopers while some 650 American, 150 British and 500 Georgian soldiers watched on in front of a fleet of tanks, Moscow's anger was almost palpable.

Last week, it said the decision to hold the exercise on its doorstep was 'provocative' and 'aimed at deliberately rocking the military-political situation in the South Caucasus'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's look at a map of the region.


The South Caucasus regions of Russia, including Chechnya and Dagestan, have always been volatile for Moscow to continue to control, and we still see sporadic fighting against the Russian Federation here.

So why is Putin so upset that British and US soldiers are operating close to the borders of these areas?!? As reported on May 9th of this year at

Since last autumn, the authorities in Dagestan have ramped up pressure against Salafis. They have reason to worry: as Moscow launched air strikes in support of Syria’s government, the Islamic State (IS) declared a holy war on Russia, took credit for downing a Russian passenger jet over Egypt and released a video threatening “a sea of blood” in Russia itself. […]

Many Russians from Chechnya and Dagestan have been found in Syria and Iraq, fighting for ISIS, so the Russian government is understandably concerned about any foreign troops in Georgia, who might just slip across the border and "encourage" more jihad, both in these regions of Russia, and in Syria and Iraq as well.

Comey rebuffs Clinton claim FBI only conducting ‘security inquiry’ on emails

Hillary Clinton for months has downplayed the FBI investigation into her private email server and practices as a mere “security inquiry.”

The FBI director reiterated that he’s “not familiar with the term security inquiry” when told that is the phrase Clinton has used.

President Donald Trump would name Rudy Giuliani secretary of Homeland Security

This can't be all that "secret" if the New York Daily News is running with it.

However, were I someone in Trump's corner, I would very much be paying attention to what Cruz is conjuring at the GOP convention in Texas this weekend.

There has been more than a little noise about Cruz attempting to prevent Trump from winning the first round nomination at the national GOP convention, and throw the status of the convention into that of "brokered", so that Trump will be unable to be the Republican candidate.

Should that happen, and Hillary becomes the Democratic nominee, such a move will throw the 2016 election to Hillary, period, end of discussion.

But then, of course, a number of Republicans would prefer Hillary to Cruz because she is a warmonger of epic proportions, and that keeps their portfolios, probably containing many military/industrial corporations, profitable.

In a vote whose outcome was largely expected, moments ago the Brazilian Senate concluded a marathon 21 hour session with a 55 to 22 vote to suspend President Dilma Rousseff from office to face an impeachment trial, ushering in a new government to take command of Latin America’s largest economy. Rousseff will be tried on allegations she illegally doctored fiscal accounts to mask the size of the budget deficit.

When officially notified later on Thursday morning, Brazil's first woman president will be suspended, ending 13 years of rule by the leftist Workers Party, and the "market friendly" Vice President Michel Temer will become acting president during her trial.

As Bloomberg adds, "from the moment she receives the notification, the process of impeachment for the crime of responsibility takes effect," Senate President Renan Calheiros said after voting ended. She is expected to be notified within hours, and give a press conference at 10 a.m. local time.

Pesticides, GMOs and Corporate Control: The Poster Child is Monsanto but Neil Young is the Main Act

GMO Free USA hosted the GMO education tent. Diana Reeves, GMO Free USA Executive Director, says Young’s inclusion of her organisation on his national tour brings the GMO issue to music fans who might have otherwise not known about it. It also gave the organisation the chance to connect with many farm belt residents.

She says:

“I heard story after story from residents who were concerned about increasing rates of cancer. ‘My father has cancer. My aunt has cancer. My neighbors have cancer’, said one concertgoer. At another venue we met a couple – he was a cancer survivor and his very pregnant wife was battling cancer. It was heartbreaking. We heard stories from farmers who have no choice but to grow GM crops because they are surrounded by neighbors who are growing them. We were told that they were certain they would be sued by Monsanto if they grew non-GMO because contamination by pollen drift would be inevitable. But they’re afraid to speak out. These GMO growers are their neighbors. Their friends. Even their family members.”

They also believe the entire case against Mohammed should be dismissed, based on the alleged actions of the prosecution, which the defense labeled as “at least the appearance of a collusion.”

Proof Positive that David Cameron, the BBC, Guardian, New Statesman and Entire Establishment are Peddling Blatant Untruths in the Kuenssberg Affair

Here are all the comments on the scrapped Kuenssberg petition. You know, the petition David Cameron condemned in the House of Commons today because it was accompanied by a storm of sexist abuse? Well, here are the comments in their entirety and out of 35,000 people who signed, there is virtually nobody whose comment can be seen as remotely sexist. See for yourselves. Can you spot the one sexist comment I found?

The comments show the petition was overwhelmingly signed by decent, concerned people who were sometimes quite eloquent. Also that the petition supporters are gender balanced and several specifically identify as feminists, and as supporters of the BBC. But neither Cameron, the Guardian and mainstream media nor 38 Degrees itself has any qualm about writing off all these decent citizens as a misogynist rabble.

Götterdämmerung: Gillian Schutte’s skulduggery

This is where it gets interesting. Guess who is the presiding High Court Judge that on 30 April 2016 gave judgment that the whole sordid affair needs to go to trial? That’s correct children – Judge Mabel Jansen. Although no date has been set it is not presumptive to assume that Judge Jansen would be the presiding judge in that trial as well.

Are you putting two and two together? The maths are quite simple. Kidi Amin is faced with the prospect of a judge presiding over a trial which he hasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. Seeing that she did not accede to his demands that the whole matter be dropped – and that he now has to go to trial – one can rightly assume that he views her as an enemy. And what better way of ridding oneself surreptitiously of an enemy than by having the enemy withdraw or be withdrawn due to scandal.

The justice minister has been asked to put her on special leave, while the complaint is dealt with, the JSC added.

Judge Jansen was widely condemned after her purported comments went viral on social media at the weekend.

'Justice For Jack' Woman Angrily Cross-Examines Sheriff, He Turns Into A Sheepish Sniveling 3rd Grader

The characterization of this exchange is mine alone, but I couldn't resist but post this clip from the local Adams County Idaho Council meeting. Jack Yantis is the 62-year-old rancher killed by Adams County, Idaho deputies last November 1. 'Justice for Jack Yantis' advocates attended a council meeting earlier this week, and one woman read a prepared statement. But what occurred after that is even better. Adams county Sheriff Ryan Zollman was present at the meeting, and afterwards, she had a chance to question him in an impromptu, spontaneous exchange. She asks tough questions about the recently leaked police memo which stated that Deputy Brian Wood was increasingly unstable, had explosives, and threatened "if cops are involved shots will be fired." This guy looks like a sheepish kingergardner who is in trouble, getting scolded by the teacher.

Fired professor, James Tracy, sues his University

I’ve read his court filing. It appears to me that Tracy’s own union took his side and then betrayed him. It appears to me that the University cooked up a fake reason for firing him: he didn’t send in a vaguely worded form they wanted him to sign.

But the real reason had to do with Tracy’s view about Sandy Hook: that it was a hoax. It doesn’t matter whether you or I or anyone else agrees with his assessment. What matters is his inherent right to express his view.

The University doesn’t want to grant Tracy that right. The University is worried about press blowback and “reputation.” Apparently, shutting down free speech doesn’t affect the University’s standing in this day and age. It’s an easy sell.

London receptionist 'sent home for not wearing heels'

A London receptionist was sent home from work after refusing to wear high heels, it has emerged.
Temp worker Nicola Thorp, 27, from Hackney, arrived at finance company PwC to be told she had to wear shoes with a "2in to 4in heel".

Webmaster addition: High heels are actually BAD for a woman's feet. They can lead to chronic pain as the woman gets older.

Hillary’s Senior Aide and her lawyer bail on FBI over Servergate questions, before reemerging

Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s Senior Aide, and Mills’ lawyer, Beth Wilkinson, packed up and left an FBI questioning session Tuesday, over Hillary Clinton’s Servergate email scandal, to confer with one another before reemerging for another round.

It was reported that their absence and consultation was allowed to take place several times by the FBI after Wilkinson made clear certain questions were ‘off limits.’

Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s heavily redacted immigration records, known as an A-file (alien file), were released in February under the Freedom of Information Act and posted online by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). FOIA has a “frequently requested record” provision where multiple request for the same record triggers a “reading room” (posted online) treatment of the records. WhoWhatWhy was one of those requesters. For context, it’s important to note that soon after the bombing, uncomfortable questions were raised by WhoWhatWhy when it became clear the FBI had long been aware of Tsarnaev. Even some of mainstream outlets, which almost uniformly have accepted the government’s version of events, couldn’t ignore this reality.

Australians raise over $35 000 for struggling truck driver who called out a politician over tax cuts for the rich

Sweet, beautiful Australia has come through with the goods today. If you’ve been living under a rock, or perhaps pinned under an especially large, over-priced toaster, Monday’s Q&A gave birth to the next true Australian legend. During the episode, part-time truckie Duncan Storrar piped up and asked Assistant Treasurer Kelly O’Dwyer why the Government was planning on lifting the tax bracket for high earners while low earners like Duncan don’t cop a break.

The Obama Administration Just Gave Warmonger Henry Kissinger the Distinguished Public Service Award

It’s a sick sad joke coming from the Nobel Peace Prize (for nothing) president who is bombing… wait, how many countries is Obama currently bombing again? Seven? Is anybody even keeping track anymore?

Here’s everyone’s favorite humanitarian Henry Kissinger shaking hands with defense secretary Ash Carter at a special ceremony at the Pentagon two days ago where the good bridge troll doctor got the highest award the Department of Defense can possibly bestow upon a civilian: a Distinguished Public Service Award.

So is it the more people murdered, the bigger the award?

Former President Vicente Fox wants war with America over Trump’s comments

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is now threatening “war” with America over Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the Mexican/U.S. border.

Fox said that Trump’s “words and messages of hate” are bringing us back to the “era of the ugly American […] where the gringo was hated all around the world,” as it’s not appropriate for the U.S. to secure its own borders.

Webmaster addition: Hey Vinnie, before you get too big for your britches, remember the reason California and Texas are now part of the United States!

Feel the Bern: Someone Tried to Get Bernie Supporters to Literally Blow Themselves up with This

Here’s one way to Feel the Bern… (sorry, worst pun ever).

Someone really wanted Bernie Sanders’ supporters to kill themselves. Literally. With a meme.

This meme, complete with an encouraging fake “Bernie Sanders approves this tutorial” line at the bottom, began making the rounds across the Internet on major social media sites like Tumblr and Reddit a couple of days ago.

While it appears to be cutesy instructions for a Bernie glow stick, the recipe is actually for a potentially deadly Anarchist Cookbook-style chlorine bomb.

BEX ALERT - Released Emails Show Use of Unclassified Systems Was Routine

Whatever the disposition of the investigation, the discussion of troops to Bahrain reveals how routinely sensitive information is emailed on unclassified government servers, reflecting what many officials describe as diplomacy in the age of the Internet, especially in urgent, fast-developing situations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times is not allowing comments on this piece of crap, or I would make the comment that unsecured servers are "routinely" used only for unclassified documents. Even the example given involves documents that were not classified at the time they were sent by conventional email, yet the New York Times is trying to equate this to Hillary's situation, to try to defend her.

Simple logic here...

The job of Secretary of State involves handling a lot of classified information. Hillary never used her secure government email account. If she didn't use her private server to handle the classified material (as she claims) ... then what server DID she use? Is there a third system out there?

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

VIDEO: 'Race Riot' Breaks Out At LA High School In 'Most Diverse District in Nation'

A massive "race riot" between blacks and Hispanics broke out at a Los Angeles high school on Monday.

Cell phone videos show students at Sylmar High School violently punching and kicking one another while completely ignoring attempts by police to break up their fights.

Some 40 students were involved in the melee and 12 officers and a host of school staffers were seen struggling to get the situation under control.

KTLA says several students told them the riot was "race and gang related."

London's Muslim Mayor Tells 'Ignorant' Trump Muslims Will Start Killing People if he Doesn't Let Them Into US

Muslims are peaceful and nonviolent, but if you don't let them into your country they'll start killing people, so says the new Muslim Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

The emir waited only five days before attacking US presidential candidate Donald Trump on his proposed temporary Muslim ban.

"Donald Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both of our countries less safe," Khan said, "it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of extremists."

SHOCKING: Here’s why Canada’s largest water bomber wasn’t “available” in Fort Mac

The Martin Mars is Canada’s largest water bomber. It’s staged at Sproat Lake BC, a short flight away from Fort McMurray and could have been used in the fight against the massive wildfire nicknamed “The Beast” by Fort Mac fire chief Darby Allen. But it wasn’t.

The bomber wasn't there because the company that owns it wasn't asked by Alberta government officials to make it available to fight fires in Alberta.

“Faced with two estranged parents in utter disagreement about their daughter’s wish to be a boy, a British Columbia Supreme Court judge has appointed the child a legal guardian to protect her interests… The father not only wants his daughter to cease taking hormone blockers but also to cease all contact with transgender activists or transgender-friendly therapists…Though the case is about whether the 11-year-old can give informed consent to such serious medical treatment, which is intended to delay the onset of female puberty, the judge appears to have already conceded the point by referring to the girl by her preferred, male, initials, J.K., and accepting her male self-identification.” (, “Court orders dad to start treating his 11-year-old daughter as a boy,” 5/6/16)

I’ve decided I’m Nyquist, the winner of last weekend’s Kentucky Derby. This in no way subtracts from, or replaces, the Nyquist who ran the race in 2:01.31.

I just want to be Nyquist in my own way. So I’ve moved into a barn in Kentucky (undisclosed location), with other horses who will not be named. They are, for the most part, friendly. I believe they’re on the way accepting me as one of their own.

How Schooling Leads to War

How did we become so manipulable and herd-like? So easily spooked into hysterical stampedes? So docile and ready to be driven by our government herders over the precipice of war?

In a word, near-universal compulsory schooling. In school, students are not so much taught as they are conditioned. Schooling deeply ingrains certain mentalities that foster militancy: timidity and tribalism, dependency and docility, conformity and credulity. And so schools sow the spiritual seeds of war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Critical thinking, and intelligent, reasoned challenge to the status quo, are nearly strictly forbidden in public education these days; and those students who dare to indulge in these activities may find themselves severely punished.
