Republican Party Unravels Over Donald Trump’s Takeover

NYTimes: ***The ties between Republican elites — elected officials, donors and Washington insiders — and voters have actually been fraying for years. Traditional power brokers long preached limited-government conservatism and wanted to pursue an immigration overhaul, entitlement cuts, free trade and a hawkish foreign policy, and nominees like John McCain and Mitt Romney largely embraced that agenda. Republican leaders also vilified President Obama and Democrats, stoking anger with rank-and-file conservatives.

Many Republican voters trudged along with those earlier nominees, but never became truly animated until Mr. Trump offered them his brand of angry populism: a blend of protectionism at home and a smaller American footprint abroad. And he was able to exploit their resentments and frustrations because those same Republican leaders had been nurturing those feelings for years with attacks on Mr. Obama, Democrats, illegal immigrants and others.

Mr. Trump, with his steadfast promises to deport immigrants who are in the country illegally and to build a wall with Mexico, may have done irreversible damage to his general election prospects. But he quickly earned the trust that so many of those voters had lost in other fixtures of America>>>

State Of Idaho Was Googling Deputy "Brian Wood Facebook Post" On January 23, Day After Secret Cop Memo

The day after the Ada County, Idaho Sheriff issued a 'LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE' internal document known as an "ATL" - attempt to locate - Adams County Deputy Brian Wood, who killed Jack Yantis, the State of Idaho was scouring the internet for "Increasingly unstable" Brian Wood's posts. According to the police memo, Brian, who had "recently reported Domestic Violence issues in the Home," had told Adams County that "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." He was also seen "collecting guns" on his sister-in-laws property and "claims to have access to explosives." So the state of Idaho was concerned enough to look into this, but Sheriff Ryan Zollman didn't see fit to inform the people. Zollman failed to warn the community, or the Yantis family, or any of the 'Justice for Jack' supporters. Take this for what it's worth. I think it reveals a twisted mindset. The day after ominous ATL (for cops eyes only, of course), Idaho wanted to know all about the maniac's facebook posts..

Washington Post BEX - Hillary Clinton is going to be exonerated on the email controversy. It won’t matter.

Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case aggressively with an eye on interviewing Clinton herself, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "she didn't mean to do wrong" defense will not fly. If you run a red light and kill a pedestrian, you still go to jail even though you did not mean to do it. And, under Title 18, revealing secrets through negligence is still a crime.

On June 17, 2011, Hillary ordered her subordinate, Jacob Sullivan, to strip the classification headers from a document and send it via non-secure means. That is a violation of Title 18 Section 793. It doesn't matter what was in the document. It doesn't even matter of Jacob carried out the order. It is Hillary's issuing of the order that is a violation!

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!

This is a cover-up, no different than when Washington Post Managing Editor Bob Kaiser spiked the story about drug running out of Mena, Arkansas by the Bush and Clinton White Houses, as part oif the Iran-Contra scandal!

In April of 2013, Britain and France informed the United Nations that there was credible evidence that Syria used chemical weapons against rebel forces. Only two months later, in June of 2013, the United States concluded that the Syrian government did, in fact, use chemical weapons in its fight against opposition forces. President Obama immediately used this chemical attack as a pretext for invasion and authorized direct U.S. military support to the rebels, according to the White House.

The Case Against Hillary Clinton

A proven catastrophe is far worse than a merely possible catastrophe; so, if Hillary Clinton turns out to be the Democratic nominee, I shall vote for Donald Trump, and then just hope that the worst things that he had said regarding public policy were lies, and that the best things that he had said regarding public policy reflected his actual beliefs.

Hillary offers not only her lies but something real (a record that’s highly relevant to the office she’s seeking) — and it’s repulsive. Trump, by contrast, offers no relevant track-record at all on public-policy matters. That’s not a virtue on his part, it’s a lack of the worst possible vice (a vile record of actual policies while in public office), for a potential U.S. President.

Given a choice between a proven psychopath, versus merely a possible (or even a likely) psychopath, I’ll definitely opt for the latter. It’s the only intelligent thing to do. Anything else would be suckerdom.

On Thursday, The Washington Free Beacon reported that Charles Ortel “spent the past 15 months digging into the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures” and determined “this is a charity fraud.”

U.S. Employment Growth Slowest In Seven Months

U.S. employers pulled back on hiring in April, adding 160,000 jobs, the fewest in seven months, after a streak of robust monthly gains. The unemployment rate remained at a low 5 percent, roughly where it has been since fall.

Last month's hiring gain marked a drop from the average increase of 200,000 over the past three months. Weak U.S. economic growth may be making some employers more cautious about hiring.

Still, the government's report Friday pointed to a U.S. job market that continues to generate steady hiring and to outperform those of most other major countries .

Aleppo Ceasefire: ‘US Ploy to Buy Time for Terrorist Reinforcements’

It’s now clearer than ever: The US are leading a dirty war, under the table, in Syria. This is the true backdrop of the stage play in Geneva, where US diplomats are providing cover and buying time for CIA and Pentagon covert operations on the ground in Syria.

What the US State Department said yesterday is very telling, and should be a clear guide to anyone about what Washington DC’s actual agenda is in Syria:

“We look to Russia… to press for the Assad regime’s compliance with this effort, and the United States will do its part with the opposition,” Wednesday’s statement said. Russia and Iran are the primary backers of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while the United States heads a group of regional and European countries supporting the opposition to his rule.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This last week, John Kerry threatened that if Russia was unsuccessful in "persuading" Al-Assad to step down by 1 August, the US would pursue another way to end the Syrian war.

That's in a little less that 120 days from now folks, and right before November's election.

We have boots on the ground in Syria right now, as declared by President Obama; the question is, will the current administration really try a full-on invasion of Syria at that point, risking direct war with Russia?!?

I would like to say that the US government is too intelligent to do this; unfortunately, if past is prologue to the future in the Obama administration, just because a move might be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do, under Obama's watch, is utterly no guarantee that it will not do just that.

And why?!?

I am betting that internal White House polls are demonstrating that should Trump get the Republican nomination, he will win handily over Clinton.

The Democrats would love to saddle Trump with raging wars and an imploding economy, long before inauguration day; it would be their "gift that keeps on giving", in order to "punish" him for having sparked the imagination - and respect - of so many Americans, as well as punish those Americans who will have voted for him.

A very nasty ploy?!? You bet.

Inconceivable?!? Hell, no!!

Wall Street Whistleblower Turns His Scrutiny on the Clinton Foundation

The Wall Street analyst who uncovered financial discrepancies at General Electric before its stock crashed in 2008 claims the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has a number of irregularities in its tax records and could be violating state laws.

Charles Ortel, a longtime financial adviser, said he has spent the past 15 months digging into the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures. That includes records from the foundation’s many offshoots—including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Global Initiative—as well as its foreign subsidiaries.

According to Ortel’s reports, the contribution disclosures from the Clinton Foundation don’t match up with individual donors’ records. He also argued that the foundation is not in compliance with some state laws regarding fundraising registration, disclosure requirements, and auditing rules.

Dole Not Shunning Convention

Dole alone in not shunning GOP convention

Only one former presidential nominee is slated to attend this summer’s Republican National Convention, leaving the party with few elders to encourage unity around presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

Bob Dole, the party’s 1996 nominee, who lost to President Bill Clinton, has confirmed he expects to attend the convention. His law firm Alston & Bird plans to hold a reception at the event.

Both George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush announced Wednesday night that they would not attend the convention in Cleveland, and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the 2008 nominee, said weeks ago that he would skip it.

Aides to 2012 nominee Mitt Romney confirmed to The Hill on Thursday that he too would not attend.

UN envoy warns that Iraq's political crisis helps extremists

The top U.N. envoy in Iraq strongly urged the country's political leaders and civil society on Friday to work together to resolve the current political deadlock, warning that the ongoing crisis and chaos are only serving the interests of Islamic State extremists.

Despite notable progress on the ground against the Islamic State group, Jan Kubis told the U.N. Security Council that "it remains a formidable and determined enemy that constantly adjusts its tactics and attack patterns." He pointed to the discovery of more than 50 mass graves in territory retaken from IS, including three found on April 19 in the soccer grounds area of Ramadi, and reports that the extremist group is using chemical weapons.

Kubis said enemies of Iraq — first and foremost IS extremists — "stand to benefit from political instability and lack of reforms."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In geopolitics, choices always have...consequences.

The choice of installing the Al-Abadi puppet government by the US government, giving no real voice whatsoever to the real needs and concerns of the Iraqi people, meant that the US government was, at its most wretchedly blind and tone-deaf, sowing the seeds of a potential popular revolution, fronted by Muqtada al Sadr.

The choices the US has here are now few and far between, and none of them good for continuing US hegemony in the region.

The US military could try a decap strike directly against Al Sadr; that would probably inflame a popular revolution, putting all of our service members in the country in horrific harm's way.

The US government's Ambassador to Iraq, Stuart Jones, could attempt to reason with the Al-Abadi government, and arm-wrestle their Parliament into making these needed reforms; but I would probably suggest that this has been tried, and failed utterly.

The US government could pull its troops completely out of Iraq; however, this would mean that the invasion and occupation of Iraq had been an horrific mistake, and neither the US military nor the US government ever does that.

At the end of the day, the US government wants to insure that Iraqi oil is only sold through approved vendors, and only in US dollars; it will do everything humanly possible to protect this, even if it means the sacrifice of the lives of hundreds more of our service members, and thousands more Iraqis.

'Fringe' Website Breaks Truth Wide Open In Leak of Secret Internal Police Memo, Sheriff's Dept. 'Frustrated'

The establishment corporate media were forced to cover the release of a secret leaked police memo yesterday, after the expose on the matter went super-viral worldwide. The article was first linked to Mike Rivero's top-rated independent news website Friday morning. In response, Sheriff Ryan Zollman claimed that the memo was "old news," after hiding it from the public for nearly four months. In reality the 'Officer Safety' Notice, issued by the Ada County, Idaho Crime Analysis Unit last January, was not 'old news' to the public at all. On the contrary, it was brand new news, because no one ever told the public about it. Channel 7 TV news in Idaho ran a breaking 6PM news story on it last night. According to channel 7, the Ada County sheriff's Dept. was "frustrated" over the leak of the confidential memo, which police officers are supposedly forbidden to release.

“The UAE Foreign Ministry released a statement denouncing the Aleppo attacks and unjustified escalation, calling on the world to stop the bloodshed. The UAE fears that such an escalation may derail the way to a political solution for the Syrian crisis. The UAE Foreign Ministry called on the Syrian regime to abide by the ceasefire and facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid to besieged areas. In the light of this escalation and these gruesome scenes from Aleppo that are now making their way around the world, the UAE’s call is a cry to awaken the world’s conscience and face these crimes ...”

“Earlier today [Saturday] ... a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel,” the army said in a statement.“In response ... aircraft targeted two Hamas terror infrastructures in the southern Gaza Strip.”

John Kerry Says Assad Has To Leave Syria Or Else… Or Else What???

Secretary of State John Kerry warned Syria’s government and its backers in Moscow and Tehran on Tuesday that they face an August deadline for starting a political transition to move President Bashar Assad out, or they risk the consequences of a new U.S. approach toward ending the 5-year-old civil war.

But given the various, unfulfilled U.S. threats throughout the Arab country’s conflict — from declaring Assad’s days “numbered” five years ago to promising military action if chemical weapons were used — it was unclear what effect Kerry’s ultimatum might have.

And it’s unlikely that the Obama administration, so long opposed to an active American combat role in Syria, would significantly boost its presence beyond the 300 special forces it has authorized thus far in the heart of a U.S. presidential election season.>>>

Baghdad ‘Shut Down’ to Prevent Friday Protests

With mass protests in Baghdad pretty much every Friday, and last weekend’s demonstrations including protesters entering the house of parliament, the Iraqi government has virtually shut the city down entirely today in an attempt to prevent such protests from taking place.

Blockades prevented traffic on most major streets in the capital, and a number of elite national police who were off fighting ISIS have been recalled to “defend” the Green Zone from the possibility of civilian protesters returning.

The protesters have been calling for anti-corruption reforms, including the installation of a new, technocrat cabinet. The prime minister nominated such a cabinet nearly a month ago, but parliament has yet to properly vote on them, with recent efforts involving fistfights among MPs and a lot of votes without proper quorums.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the US government's worst nightmare; a popular movement, supported, potentially by the resurrection of Al Sadr's Mahdi Army, with the potential of sweeping the current, US-enabled government out of power, and establishing Muqtada Al Sadr is Iraq's President.

The US government's and military's response will probably be the most massive influx of US military into Iraq that will be possible. However, with competing agendas for the US military globally, it is hard to envision how long such a popular movement can be constrained by the actions of an outside military force.

To paraphrase Sun Zsu, in order to win a war, you have to be on the moral, and right, side of history; in the case of the US government's invasion and occupation of Iraq, this was not at all the case.

***It’s not like we’re not playing for the same team anymore. The bitter disagreement is about how to achieve the main objective.

And what is the objective? At this point, it is to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president of the United States. The case for Trump is that elections, as the estimable John Bolton put it in a recent interview, present a “binary choice.” The main attraction of Trump, for those who are attracted, is the belief that he stands the best chance of defeating Clinton.

The next five years will see the international market for ‘riot control systems’ boom to a value of more than $5 billion at an annual growth rate of 5%, according to a new report by a global business intelligence firm.

The report forecasts a dramatic rise in civil unrest across the world, including in North America and Europe, driven by an increase in Ferguson-style incidents and “extremist attacks.”

The Middle East, North Africa and Asia-Pacific regions will also experience a persistent rise in conflicts.

This increasing trend in instability promises billions of dollars of profits for global defence firms, concludes the report, published last month by Infiniti Research Ltd., a market intelligence firm whose clients include Fortune 500 companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there is any possibility for you of getting out of a hyper-urban environment into an area of relative quiet, rural and not easily accessible, demanding a lot of self-reliance, now is the time to discuss it with your family, and make that transition.

The 1% will have absolutely no patience with the coming frustrations of what they consider "the great unwashed" (translation: anyone who is not filthy rich), and consequently, Federal and state governments will order police departments to put down any kind of demonstrations with extreme prejudice.

That means killing not only those leading any demonstrations, but also innocent women and children, the medically fragile, and the elderly.

Think the film "V for Vendetta", but with the tragic ending of the government successfully suppressing all of its citizens, and you have a little taste of what, unfortunately, is probably going to come to the US and much of the rest of the world.

WSJ REPORTS: Trump Voters: Not So Irrational

The political scientist who applies the ‘rational choice’ theory of economics to voters says there was a method to the GOP’s primary madness.
That is the contrarian argument advanced by political scientist Samuel L. Popkin of the University of California, San Diego, who has studied public opinion and elections for half a century. A native of Superior, Wis., the 73-year-old Mr. Popkin has also served as a consultant for the presidential campaigns of George McGovern, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Mr. Popkin is perhaps best known for applying the rational-choice theory of economics to voting.

His seminal 1991 book “The Reasoning Voter” argues that voters are public investors who “expend effort voting in the expectation of gaining future satisfaction.” They “combine, in an economical way, learning and information from past experiences, daily life, the media, and political campaigns” to make reasoned judgments about politicians.
“If you see a guy on a cooking show for a long time, you figure he knows how to cook. If you see a guy running businesses and educating people on how to run businesses, you figure he knows how to run a business,” Mr. Popkin says. >>

Hillary Clinton Targets Republicans Turned Off By Trump

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is trying to seize on the turmoil Donald J. Trump’s ascent has caused within the Republican Party, hoping to gain the support of Republican voters and party leaders including former elected officials and retired generals disillusioned by their party’s standard-bearer.

The efforts come after the House speaker, Paul D. Ryan, on Thursday said he was “just not ready” to back Mr. Trump, comments the Clinton campaign giddily blasted out in an email and on social media. At the same time, Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” supporting Mrs. Clinton, intends to reach out to Republican megadonors disillusioned by their party’s presumptive nominee.

More broadly, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign is repositioning itself, after a year of emphasizing liberal positions and focusing largely on minority voters, to also appeal to independent and Republican-leaning white voters turned off by Mr. Trump.

"And the simple reality of all of that is we shouldn't be ashamed about some of the mistakes our government has made in the past and I don't think the people of Israel, don't need to be ashamed of what happened 80 years ago."

Londonistan: Muslim Takeover of London Complete

Goodbye London, it was nice knowing you.

Muslim Sadiq Khan, "the son of a Pakistani bus driver," was just elected Mayor. He ran on a platform of there being "too many white men" working in the government and promised more wealth redistribution, the local massive Muslim population voted for him in droves.

His Jewish opponent Zac Goldsmith is married to a Rothschild and is the son of billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith, he tried his best to associate Khan with "antisemitism" and accused him of "pandering to extremists" but no one cared because they're all Muslims.

The GOP's 24-hour meltdown

Trump's promise to unify the Republican Party is in tatters, as an all-out civil war grips the GOP.
“But I won’t talk about Jeb Bush. I will not say, I will not say he’s low energy, I will not say it,” Trump told a boisterous crowd who booed at the mention of his critics. “I will not say it. And I won’t talk about Lindsey Graham, who had like 1 point, you ever see this guy on television? He is nasty. … He leaves a disgrace, he can’t represent the people of South Carolina well.”

Trump also alternated on Friday between shrugging off Ryan’s bombshell announcement and scorching him.

During a phone interview with Fox News, Trump said he was “very, very surprised” at Ryan’s comments. “It’s hard to believe,” he said, adding, “It doesn’t bother me at all.”

Home About Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsUS Shipping Tanks to Georgia for ‘Drills’

The Pentagon has begun the process today of loading tanks onto ferries in Varna, Bulgaria, to make their way across the Black Sea to Batumi, in the Republic of Georgia, where they will be used in upcoming military exercises, which will involve some 650 US troops and 150 British troops.

This is the second year of the exercise, which appears to be meant to be an annual event, and the first time US combat tanks will be involved. Last year, the US sent Bradley Fighting Vehicles to Georgia for the operation.

The Georgian Defense Ministry announced the deployment would happen back in January, saying at the time that the presence of the tanks would underscore US support for the Georgian Republic against Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US continues to attempt to bait Putin and Russia into a military response to all of its picador like actions; Putin is far too bright to fall for this.

Students at Spanish college forced to take exorcism class

A publicly funded college in Spain has told students that it is compulsory to attend a course given by a priest who is an expert in exorcisms.

The University College of Barberán and Collán (Colegio Mayor Universitario Barberán y Collán) is connected to the public research institute Complutense University of Madrid, and is also funded by Spain’s Defence Ministry.

But some of its curriculum doesn’t seem quite typical of a publicly-funded institute.

The college is requiring its 196 students - who are all members of military families - to attend a theological conference focused on "the fields related to the devil, exorcisms, being possessed and hell", according to newspaper El Diario.

A woman who answered the phone at the college told The Local that there was seminar about exorcism, but could not immediately confirm other details.

Saudi Arabia is suddenly facing a serious catastrophe — here’s why

Saudi Arabia is in serious trouble. The Binladin Group, the kingdom’s largest construction company, has terminated the employment of fifty thousand foreign workers. They have been issued exit visas, which they have refused to honor. These workers will not leave without being paid back wages. Angry with their employer, some of the workers set fire to seven of the company’s buses.

Obama on Trump: The presidency ‘is not a reality show’

President Barack Obama urged the U.S. media and American public on Friday to examine the “long record” of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and not get distracted by the “spectacle and the circus” aspect of the 2016 election campaign.

The Democratic president delivered an indirect swipe at the flamboyant, combative Republican primary campaign run by Trump, a former reality television star, and how media have covered it.

“It’s important for us to take seriously the statements he’s made in the past,” Obama said in remarks to reporters. “I just want to emphasize the degree to which we are in serious times and this is a really serious job.

“This is not entertainment. This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find these statements from President Obama richly ironic, because before he was nominated by the Democratic Party to run for President, his "long history", before becoming a Congressional representative, was completely blocked from public investigation.

What about his life in Indonesia, his hidden college transcripts, and occasionally using the name "Barry Soetoro"?!?

What about his time at Business International Corporation, a known CIA front?!?

What about the allegedly promised "most transparent administration in history" embracing the thuggish culture of deceit and treachery against the American people, by making things like the TTIP top secret, until the text was finally leaked?!?

And there is another interesting comparison to make; Trump has succeeded in business, where Obama has failed the American people miserably at almost every turn.

We find ourselves more enmeshed with wars, and more wars coming (in an election year, no less); the economy is great for the 1%, and lousy for most of the rest of us; jobs continue to be offshored and outsourced, leaving many Americans destitute; and the Administration keeps fudging the employment figures and ignoring the 30 million who have been out of work for a long time. And Obamacare is an absolute disaster, with many providers pulling and with premiums going up sky high in November with those insurers staying in the game.

Except for the P5+1 Agreement with Iran, which still may crater at any time, this President's "legacy" will be considered a nightmare, from the long, cold gaze of history.

Eco-terrorists plot? Second wildfire in Canada near an oil & gas operation in British Columbia on the same latitude as Ft McMurray

New Alert for people in Canada, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse. Now a new large area has began burning in British Columbia on top of what is already going on in Alberta Canada.

As most people might already know, an extremely large fire has broken out across Northeast Alberta Canada near Fort McMurray. The massive fires have now forced the evacuation of over 88,000 people, with the loss of thousands of houses, and burning over 210,000 square acres in a matter of a few days time.

Now all of a sudden, massive plumes of smoke are appearing EXACTLY due West in British Columbia at another Oil + Gas pumping operation just North of Fort St. John, BC Canada.

They Do Not Own Us As Property

In recent years, Americans have been burdened with historic expansions in government control, with a proliferation of fees, regulations, czars and bureaucracies, along with profligate spending that guarantees higher future taxes. Such dictates violate Americans’ inalienable self-ownership.

That is why Lysander Spooner, born January 19, deserves renewed attention. Spooner laid out why our natural right of self-ownership, combined with its implied right to enter voluntary arrangements, made government coercion of peaceful people illegitimate. Since we are rapidly accelerating away from that moral standard, we need to rediscover Spooner’s vision. In particular, his 1870 No Treason illuminates our current situation:

Hamas and Israel Trade Blows in Gaza During Worst Week of Violence Since 2014

By Avi Asher-Schapiro
For much of the last week, Israel and the militant Palestinian group Hamas have been trading blows: Israeli warplanes and tanks have been firing into the densely populated Gaza strip, while Palestinian fighters lob mortars at Israeli troops — it's the sharpest uptick in hostilities since Israel's 2014 invasion of Gaza.

The escalation of violence comes as Israeli soldiers crossed into Gaza on Wednesday as part of an operation the army says will root out and destroy underground tunnels that lead into Israel.

The frontier between Israel and Gaza has been mostly quite for sometime and its unclear why Israel chose to move into Gaza this past week. But Israeli officials have hinted that the recent capture of Hamas member Mahmoud Atouna may have provided new intelligence the militant group's underground network.
In response to Israeli incursion into Gaza, Hamas and its allies have been firing off mortar shells at Israeli troops, though no soldiers have yet been injured in the attacks. Israel has retaliated with airstrikes and tanks shiells.

Fort McMurray Wildfire – Climate or Incompetence?

Understaffed, under-resourced forestry workers struggling to contain a growing risk of wildfire, a risk which has been exacerbated by excessive fire suppression causing a buildup of flammables, is a recipe for disaster.

Did Alberta authorities act, and act effectively, on the recommendations of committee? I don’t know the answer to that question. It is possible weather conditions are so severe, even completely reasonable forest safety measures have been overwhelmed by the ferocity of the fire. But if my property and life was directly affected by the current ongoing conflagration, my first question to Alberta authorities would not be “why didn’t you build more wind turbines?”.

Big Pharma knowingly created prescription drug epidemic and raked in billions: report

An investigation by the Los Angeles Times has revealed that the pharmaceutical company that sells the opiate painkiller OxyContin knew the drug was highly addictive — but pushed it anyway.

The Times obtained thousands of pages of confidential Purdue documents and learned company executives have known about the problem for decades.

“Even before OxyContin went on the market, clinical trials showed many patients weren’t getting 12 hours of relief. Since the drug’s debut in 1996, the company has been confronted with additional evidence, including complaints from doctors, reports from its own sales reps and independent research,” the Times reports.

And even more damning, “The company has held fast to the claim of 12-hour relief, in part to protect its revenue. OxyContin’s market dominance and its high price — up to hundreds of dollars per bottle — hinge on its 12-hour duration. Without that, it offers little advantage over less expensive painkillers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one thing to know about all high-level executives at drug companies; before accepting that very well paying position, they have to have their consciences surgically removed before taking the job, in order to lie well to protect corporate profits at all cost.

Various North Carolina farmers partnered with R.J. Reynolds tobacco company illegally hires children under 13 years old to harvest their tobacco crops, report released Wednesday stated.

A recent audit commissioned by the tobacco company found that 40 percent of its contractor farms employed under age workers, therefore violating the Federal law on child labor, including 16 percent of minors under the age of 16 were illegally performing hazardous work.

Baldemar Velasquez, president of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, AFL-CIO (FLOC), says he’s not surprised by the audit results.

“We’ve been telling the company for eight years now that there are serious labor violations happening all over Southern tobacco fields, including on Reynolds farms. Imagine what the audits would have found if they were allowed to talk to more workers and ask more in depth questions about the workers’ experiences,” said Velasquez.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is child slavery, pure and simple.

I remember as a teenager, staying with a friend in Watsonville, California, when we picked strawberries to help her get a little bit of extra cash.

I remember being treated by the manager as though we were somehow subhuman; it was just the culture of the environment.

I remember one day, coming back to her house, lying on the cold linoleum floor and thinking, "I really think I want to go to college, and graduate, and get a decent job!"

But the people we were picking berries with would never, in their lives, have that kind of opportunity; so it is with the children harvesting tobacco for RJ Reynolds.

“The bigger the lie, the bigger the truth it is concealing. The truth is what people are afraid to accept.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

The censored film, Vaxxed (trailer), has escaped the claws of the “protectors of all truth.” It has been showing to packed houses all over the country. It relates the specific crime of scientific fraud at the CDC. A whistleblower, William Thompson, confesses that he and his CDC colleagues lied and cheated and omitted vital data, in order to give the MMR vaccine a free pass and claim it had no connection to autism—when it did have a connection.

That’s the purpose and meaning and focus of this astonishing film.

But there is more. There are other whistleblowers shining a light on the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine. Specifically, the mumps component of the vaccine and its ineffectiveness.

The US government is fully aware that the allegedly moderate opposition in Syria is working closely with the al-Nusra Front, an offshoot of the al-Qaeda terror group, but publicly pretends the two groups are separate, former CIA counterterrorism officer Philip Giraldi told Sputnik.”The so-called moderate rebels are in cohabitation with the Nusra Front, so this is not surprising,” Giraldi, a former CIA Case Officer and US Army Intelligence Officer who spent 20 years overseas working on terrorism cases, said on Wednesday.

The US government attempted to include the al-Nusra Front in the new ceasefire agreement in Aleppo, but the Russian government insisted on excluding the Islamist organization as unacceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Sputnik in an exclusive interview on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the US government; the lie about the alleged "moderate rebels" is not working.

Thinking people know that thousands of mercs have recruited for the coming battle of Aleppo. As reported yesterday in

US-NATO is not prepared to let go in Syria. While the US sponsored Al Qaeda and ISIS rebels have largely been defeated, with the support of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, the Obama administration is now intent upon replenishing so to speak its “moderate opposition” brigades inside Syria with a new influx of jihadist fighters. Following the decimation of Daesh-al Nusrah positions throughout the country, thousands of Islamic militants have fled amidst the outflow of refugees. The Western military alliance has responded to this defeat of “moderate” rebel positions byreplenishing its proxy army, –ie. recruiting and training a new horde of mercenaries and jihadists with the support of Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia. In this regard, the ongoing Battle for Aleppo is absolutely crucial. “Thousands of terrorists” were reported to have crossed the Turkey-Syria border in early May. No doubt, they will be deployed against government forces in Aleppo: “ Syrian Prime Minister Wael Nader al-Halqi also warned that more than 5,000 fresh militants crossed the border into the Northwestern provinces of Aleppo and Idlib from Turkey, stressing that the ceasefire agreement was being violated by certain parties.”

How long before the US and Russia are at each others' throats in Syria has become not a matter of if, but when.

Turkey’s increasingly dictatorial president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, scored yet another domestic victory Thursday, with the resignation of Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, his former ally who nominally holds the reins of the country.

Erdogan is now free to push for a change in the constitution that would transfer more power to himself. But this act also highlights his growing political isolation, which many believe will spell the end his career — an outcome of great concern to the US and its European allies.

Western leaders desperately need Turkey to remain stable. As a key NATO ally in a volatile region — NATO’s second-largest army, in fact — and the country that is supposed to protect Europe from another flood of refugees, a lot is riding on Turkey’s stability. But the oppressed half of the country does not share the same sentiments, and talk of a possible coup against Erdogan is growing louder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question is, how does the country's military feel about the country being turned into an absolute dictatorship, under Edrogan's watch?!?

I think that this is the most critical factor to the future of political movements in Turkey.

A Need To Clear Up Clinton Questions

“Some people think they can lie and get away with it,” said former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld with feigned outrage. And, of course, he has never been held accountable for his lies, proving his dictum true.

The question today is: Will former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Teflon coat be as impermeable to deep scratches as Rumsfeld’s has proven to be?

With the “mainstream media” by and large giving Hillary Clinton a pass on her past, few Americans realize how many Pinocchio faces need to be tacked onto many of her statements. Clinton is said to be “unquestionably” the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, essentially the presumptive nominee. That is unquestionably true – but only because she has not been questioned with much rigor at all. And on those few occasions when she has been asked hard questions, she has often ducked them.

BEX Alert!!! - "Why North Carolina’s governor had to apologize to Bruce Springsteen"

Yesterday evening, the governor issued an apology through Politifact, saying he had the sales number wrong when he announced it on public radio.

Here’s the full statement from Josh Ellis, a spokesman for the governor:

“The governor apologizes for using the wrong number. It’s too bad Bruce Springsteen actually canceled on nearly 15,000 people at the last minute. Regardless, the governor is still keeping his Springsteen albums despite their political disagreements.”
