‘Our rules, not China’s’: Obama invokes Beijing threat in defense of Pacific trade deal

The rules of trade in the Asia-Pacific must be written by America, not China, US President Barack Obama has argued in an opinion article that called for a swift ratification of the controversial TPP free trade deal.

“America should write the rules. America should call the shots. Other countries should play by the rules that America and our partners set, and not the other way around,” the president wrote in a piece published by the Washington Post.

Can banks individually create money out of nothing? — The theories and the empirical evidence

An empirical test is conducted, whereby money is borrowed from a cooperating bank, while its internal records are being monitored, to establish whether in the process of making the loan available to the borrower, the bank transfers these funds from other accounts within or outside the bank, or whether they are newly created. This study establishes for the first time empirically that banks individually create money out of nothing. The money supply is created as ‘fairy dust’ produced by the banks individually, "out of thin air".

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Back in 1968 there was an important court case which you have probably never heard of (for reasons that will be obvious) called First National Bank of Montgomery V. Jerome Daly, but referred to as the Credit River case. Mr. Daly fought the foreclosure on his home on the principle that due consideration (something of actual value) was not loaned by the bank, as the bank simply created the "money" out of think air, then charged interest on it. The bank's President, Mr. Morgan, admitted on the stand that yes, banks, simply create money out of thin air to loan, and nothing of actual value was pledged by the bank. Mr. Morgan excused this behavior by saying that all banks operate this way, even though there is no actual law that authorizes banks (other than the Federal Reserve) to create money out of thin air. Judge Martin Mahoney took the view that the "consideration" by the bank was both unlawful and unconstitutional. The jury agreed and Mr. Daly kept his home. The 1968 Minnesota Trial Court's decision holding the Federal Reserve Act unconstitutional and void and holding the National Banking Act unconstitutional and void was never appealed or vacated. It was simply declared "bad law" and buried. Mr. Daly's lawyer was disbarred on trumped-up charges and Judge Martin Mahoney was poisoned to death six months later.

France not to Sign TTIP Deal Due To US Position

France cannot sign the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement due to the attitude of the United States, French Foreign Trade Minister Matthias Fekl said on Tuesday.

Suspending talks is "the most probable option [due to] the mindset of the United States… It is an agreement which, as it stands today, is a bad deal. As it is, France cannot sign [it]," Fekl told Europe 1 radio.

Another Reason for Brexit: EU 'Was a CIA Project from the Beginning'

In a recent piece for The Telegraph, commenting on President Obama's trip to the UK earlier this month to attempt to convince the island nation to vote against Brexit, Evans-Pritchard recalled that "Brexiteers should have been prepared for the shattering intervention of the US," since "the European Union always was an American project."

In fact, the journalist recalled, taking a look back through archival history, one finds that "it was Washington that drove European integration in the late 1940s,", and Washington that "funded it covertly under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations."

Contrary to popular belief among some in Europe that the US may have viewed European integration as a threat, the project was in actually always seen as an "anchor to American regional interests alongside NATO," all the way back to its inception.

Monsanto Set To Fight Argentina Over “Royalties” Owed By Farmers

While the Argentine government has recently shown signs that it may take the side of farmers over Monsanto, the international agricultural corporation is not willing to simply accept defeat. Nor is it even willing to accept a minor obstacle in its attempt to dominate the food supply.

Shortly after the government of President Mauricio Macri passed a resolution officially giving control of the analysis of seeds, Monsanto is now set to challengethe Argentine government’s decision.

While the Argentine government has agreed to collect monies owed by small farmers in royalties on genetically modified soybean seeds, the government requested additional time to do so. Even this, however, was unacceptable to Monsanto as the corporation rejected the government’s request according to two unnamed Monsanto staff members cited by Bloomberg News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monsanto proves that corporations are starting to think they are governments!

Obamacare To Unveil "Price Shock" One Week Before The Elections

The writing was on the wall long before the largest US insurer, UnitedHealth, decided to pull the plug on Obamacare in mid April. Then, just a week later, Aetna’s CEO said Thursday that his company expects to break even, but legislative fixes are needed to make the marketplace sustainable.

"I think a lot of insurance carriers expected red ink, but they didn’t expect this much red ink,” said Greg Scott, who oversees Deloitte’s health plans practice. "... A number of carriers need double-digit increases."

It gets better.

One week ago Marilyn Tavenner, who until January 2015 ran the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, aka the massive Federal agency that oversaw the rollout of Obamacare and the disastrous implementation of HealthCare.gov and who is now as an insurance lobbyist, said she sees big jumps in Obamacare insurance premiums.

Rohini Bisesar: Psychiatric Illness, or Long-Term Covert Neuro-Experimentation and a “Manchurian Candidate”?

*hyperlinks/images live at source*

Many things fail to add up in the case of Rohini Bisesar, the 40-year-old financial services professional with a highly accomplished resume who was recently charged with first-degree murder in Toronto in the tragic stabbing death of a young woman unknown to her, 28-year-old newly married Rosemary Junor, who, her family notes, “was just starting out on her life.” Rohini Bisesar has been ordered to undergo a mental health exam in advance of an impending court date of May 4.

We must question however whether mental health is the primary issue here, or if a darker scenario is at play.

Colorado Supreme Court Rules State Law Trumps Local Bans On Fracking

State's high court calls Longmont, Fort Collins measures on fracking "invalid and unenforceable"

Colorado's Supreme Court ruled against Front Range cities' push to limit oil and gas development near people Monday, saying state power to regulate the industry trumps local measures, which the court deemed "invalid and unenforceable."

The court overturned Fort Collins' five-year moratorium on fracking within the city limits. Justices concluded it "operationally conflicts" with state law and therefore, under well-established principles, must be pre-empted by the state. It also rejected Longmont's 2012 ban on fracking because it "materially impedes" use of state power.

TTIP Risks To Health & Environment

TTIP risks to health & environment, 'US pressure on EU' revealed in secret docs leaked by Greenpeace

The controversial trade deal between the EU and the US could affect public health, people’s rights, internet privacy and the environment badly, Greenpeace says, citing leaked negotiation texts. The US is pressuring the EU over the deal, a report on the texts alleges.

The 248 pages of classified negotiation papers on The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) were released by Greenpeace Netherlands on Monday.

“This treaty is threatening to have far-reaching implications for the environment and the lives of more than 800 million citizens in the EU and US,” a Greenpeace statement says.

Heidi Cruz responds to people who call her husband the Zodiac Killer

Heidi spent Monday morning traveling across Indiana in support of her husband’s presidential campaign. At a cafe in Carmel, Yahoo News asked for her reaction to a series of jokes that Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore made at the White House Correspondents’ dinner on Saturday night, where he repeatedly called her husband “the Zodiac Killer.”

“Well, I’ve been married to him for 15 years, and I know pretty well who he is, so it doesn’t bother me at all. There’s a lot of garbage out there,” Heidi said.

There is a popular Internet meme where people have asked whether Ted Cruz is the infamous Zodiac Killer, who was responsible for a string of unsolved murders and taunting letters to law enforcement in California during the late 1960s and early ’70s.>>>

Is the US a Carefully Constructed “Mock-Up?”

Those familiar with settings for Hollywood movies will recognize that there is a difference between façade and structure. In the case of celluloid, a “mock-up” may be used to simulate a structure, without, however its three-dimensional and functional integrity. A mock-up may look like what it is simulating, but on close examination, it will become apparent it is only a Sim.

A “mock up” may be defined as follows: a “full sized scale model used for demonstration, study or testing.”

This article will explore the possibility that, far from being a Constitutional republic, that the United States is, in fact, a “mock-up” and a Sim.

Seymour Hersh Says Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels

The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books («Whose Sarin?» and «The Red Line and the Rat Line») has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad. «By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria».

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, these charges are true, is this REALLY "the woman" you want to have in the White House as President?!?

The woman for whom money and power mean....EVERYTHING, and she will do or say ANYTHING to hang on to it if elected, no matter how badly it effected the American people?!?

The woman who has proven that she will do ANYTHING to "regime change" governments not to the US government's liking?!?

Please remember, if she is on the Democratic ticket in November, and steals the election, or gets voted in, she is a warmonger of the highest order, and has never seen a US military intervention she did not like.

Oh yes, and bet on this: the return of the military draft, for both young men and women.

I remember, in those days right after the false flag sarin attack in Syria, how intensely Obama and Kerry were arguing that the US military had no choice but to invade Syria, and regime-change the country.

And the man who became Syria's international saviour, Russia's Vladimir Putin, was, fortunately, able to talk some sense into the American government, and the US government blinked.

The wars which the US has started, and are festering and simmering, globally, like a bad, contagious infection, will continue apace under a second Clinton presidency; that's just the cold hard reality.

FOR INDIANA VOTERS - HILLARY THE SPY?

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.

On August 15, 1971 Richard Nixon signed Executive Order 11615. Later that evening he appeared on television to make his announcement, interrupting the TV show Bonanza. Nixon tried to convince the American people that he was protecting them from the international money interests. He told the people that it was a complicated issue, and proceeded to explain it in simple terms. He continued, explaining that he was suspending the convertibility of dollars into gold, and charging a 10% tariff on imports.

LEAKED DOCS REVEAL TTIP TRADE DEAL IN JEOPARDY AS "IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES" EMERGE

Now, according to leaked negotiating drafts and internal positions, which were obtained by Greenpeace and seen by the Guardian, it seems the stumbling blocks ahead of the TTIP's implementation are indeed substantial, and potentially dealbreaking. As the Guardian reports, talks for a free trade deal between Europe and the US face a serious impasse with "irreconcilable" differences in some areas.

The leaked texts also show that the two sides are at odds "over US demands that would require the EU to break promises it has made on environmental protection."

As Obama said last week during his whirlwind tour of Europe, and especially his visit to Hanover where thousands of Germans were protesting the TTRIP at the same time, he was confident a deal could be reached. "But the leaked negotiating drafts and internal positions, which were obtained by Greenpeace and seen by the Guardian, paint a very different picture."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good.

This legislation would have supplanted national governments with a hideous corpratocracy, and a regulatory structure which would crush all small business, particularly here in the US.

One Year of Silence on Hillary Clinton Uranium Deal

–Bill and Hillary Clinton had helped a Canadian financier named Frank Giustra and a small Canadian company obtain a lucrative uranium mining concession from the dictator in Kazakhstan;

–The same Canadian company, renamed Uranium One, bought uranium concessions in the United States;

–The Russian government came calling and sought to buy that Canadian company for a price that would mean big profits for the Canadian investors;

–For the Russians to buy that Canadian company, it would require the approval of the Obama administration, including Hillary’s State Department, because uranium is a strategically important commodity;

–Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval;

–Some of the donations, including those from the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Teler, were kept secret, even though the Clintons promised to disclose all donations;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corruption sticks to this "power couple" like fleas stick to a dog; and trust me, that is not going to change if Hillary Clinton wins/steals this election.

Yes, I would love to see a woman in the White House; someone knowledgeable, trustworthy, and capable of seeing to it that this country resolves its geopolitical differences with intelligent, hard-won negotiations, rather than wars. I also want a President who will give the highest level of medical/emotional support to our Vets; as much as I abhor war, these people have earned it, and should get it, period, end of discussion.

Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton has none of these attributes; she is a war monger of the highest order, autocratic, abrasive, and will ultimately be constantly looking out for her cronies, and not the real needs and concerns of We the People.

"Pay to Play" will NOT end in another Clinton presidency.

OSAMA BIN LADEN VOICE ACTOR REVEALS HE FAKED PROPAGANDA VIDEOS

In an interview with the New York Times, a former ABC News intern reveals that he was responsible for “faking” Osama bin Laden’s accent, which the network used to dub over various bin Laden videos and broadcast to the world.

The 22 year old intern worked on ABC’s program “Nightline”, and as soon as the September 11 attacks occurred he was asked by a producer to voice-over an English translation of bin Laden’s alleged “confession”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The attachment of Osama bin Laden to 9/11 was simply a ruse, and completely as fraudulent as was using this kid's voice to record a an false "confession" from Bin Laden regarding this horrific false flag.

It was all about the US government getting " emotional traction" by steering the narrative in the direction they wanted it to go, to justify the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and attempting to quash all reasonable arguments against these wars.

DEUTSCHE BANK HAS SYSTEMIC MONEY LAUNDERING, TERRORIST FINANCING AND SANCTIONS PROBLEMS: UK REGULATOR

Just two days after Deutsche Bank fired the head of its "integrity committee", Georg Thoma who had been originally tasked with clearing up the bank's past scandals, because according to DB's vice chairman Alfred Herling, Thoma had been "overzealous" and "goes too far when he demands ever wider investigations and more and more lawyers come marching up", today the UK financial watchdog agency FCA announced that Germany's biggest bank has "serious" and "systemic" failings in its controls against money laundering, terrorist financing and sanctions, the Financial Times reported.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), has now ordered a separate independent review, the FT reported the letter as saying. The FCA declined to comment.

In other words instad of firing it "Chief Ethics Officer" (sic), Deutsche should have ideally hired a few more because as a result of this latest probe it is most likely looking at billions more in settlement charges over the next 6 - 12 months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Deutsche Bank is giving regulators (and the public) the illusion of fixing these problems, but this illusion will ultimately not fix the problem, because there is too much money to be made illegally from these activities to quit them.

And the fines?!? Play money, compared with what can be earned these illegal earnings.

After the leaks today showing just what it really stands for, this could be the end for TTIP

The leaked TTIP documents, published by Greenpeace this morning, run to 248 pages and cover 13 of the 17 chapters where the final agreement has begun to take shape. The texts include highly controversial subjects such as EU food safety standards, already known to be at risk from TTIP, as well as details of specific threats such as the US plan to end Europe’s ban on genetically modified foods.

UK Parliament 'would not be able to stop NHS sell-off under TTIP'

The documents show that US corporations will be granted unprecedented powers over any new public health or safety regulations to be introduced in future. If any European government does dare to bring in laws to raise social or environmental standards, TTIP will grant US investors the right to sue for loss of profits in their own corporate court system that is unavailable to domestic firms, governments or anyone else.

Warning: Windows 10 updates being forced on users

Attention all computer users who have Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, you are in eminent danger from the new Microsoft policy to automatically download and install Windows 10 without your permission.

I have received numerous calls about Windows 10 just appearing on users’ computers, and none of them had requested the Windows 10 update. Many users complained that it is not clear how to use this system as many items appear to be missing, including anti-spyware programs.

The First Casualty Is Truth

In the fifth century B.C., Greek dramatist Aeschylus said, “In war, truth is the first casualty.” Quite so. Whenever national leaders decide to go on the warpath for the sake of their own ambition or self-aggrandisement, it’s the citizenry that will pay the bloody price for their aspirations. Since war is rarely desired by the citizenry, it has to be sold to them. Some form of deception, exaggeration, or outright lies must be put forward to con the populace into getting on board with the idea.

War, after all, represents a monumental failure of national leaders to serve the rightful national objectives of a citizenry – peace and prosperity. Of course, in the case of an empire going to war, this represents a monumental failure on steroids – the outcome may well be world war in such a case.

German Justice Minister Flees Stage From Angry Mob Shouting "TRAITOR!!"

Heiko Maas, the German Federal Minister of Justice, was unable to finish his Labor Day celebration speech on the 1st of May as he was loudly booed and chased off the stage by the German people. The people repeatedly shouted "Traitor", "Leftist Rat", "Get out!", "We are the People" and "Maas must go!", eventually getting him to cancel his speech and flee to his armored vehicle escorted by his armed bodyguards. Maas is considered one of the biggest proponents of expanding censorship laws, demanding persecution, fines and jail-time for everybody posting "hate speech" on social media. He also does not acknowledge the existence of the German people, backing his party, the Social Democrats, in the opinion that Europe was always made up of immigrants and Germany's only chance of redemption for the eternal guilt of World War 2 is inviting as many Muslim immigrants as possible.

Big Brother reprimands his unruly subjects: Obama lectures the UK population on how to vote in the Brexit referendum

Legal bills mount as Ferguson stands by 'failure-to-comply' cases

On a humid July evening, a Ferguson police officer spotted a malfunctioning taillight on a trailer and pulled over the pickup that was hauling it.

Robert Mentzel, a property manager, wasn’t driving and was in the passenger seat. Still, the officer ordered him to produce his identification.

“Why do you need to see my license?” asked Mentzel, then 54. “You’ve got to have probable cause.”

The officer responded with an ultimatum: Provide your identification or go to jail. Mentzel handed over his license while suggesting he shouldn’t have to.

He was arrested anyway.

Today, nearly two years later, Ferguson prosecutors are pursuing a conviction against Mentzel, one of dozens of defendants charged with “failure to comply” — a charge that the U. S. Department of Justice has said Ferguson police have routinely abused.

The Cost Of Oral Cancer Treatment Medications Has Increased

Why has the cost of oral cancer treatment medications increased by 600 percent in last 15 years?
Although a recent study drew no conclusions as to why the increase in cost has happened, the researchers found the increases at odds with how they think the marketplace should work.

Oral cancer medications have become increasingly popular in the last 15 years, with 32 new types introduced between 2000 and 2014. With the heightened popularity has come a shocking increase in price of approximately 600 percent, with costs for drugs going from an average of $1,869 per month to $11,325. As the drugs become unaffordable for many who need them, patients are asking why.

Okay, I'm sorry for the crude title (not really) but I've had enough of this guy. If you're offended by bad language leave now. Rand Paul is a complete clown, who admitted in an official obscure Senate Speech that he literally quote "Meets with Israeli groups daily." WTF kind of insane b.s. is this? This guy should be in prison for treason. Okay, I've confronted many politicians. A few months ago I interrupted Trump's rally and told him that it was JEWS, not Muslims, who were arrested for cheering on 9/11, and that Israel did 9/11. Trump relied by saying that I was a "Very-committed high-energy Trump guy who was on his side." I have never had the chance to meet and/or question Rand Paul, this joke who disgraces his father;s legacy. I am out of town and can not make it to the Nixon Library tomorrow.

Lies, Lies And Omg, More Lies

It's that time of year again. It's open enrollment for health plans at my employer. They are biggest employer in Philly and have the most leverage possible with the insurance companies. They have such good leverage that my premiums are going up "only" 9.8% this year for a basic HMO plan. Based on what I hear from others, I should be thankful for just a 9.8% increase.

This isn't a new development. Since I've been tracking all my expenditures using Quicken since 1991, I know exactly what my annual health insurance costs have been every year. Obamacare was passed in 2009 and began to be implemented in 2010. Obama declared that families could expect $2,500 of savings per year. I know for a fact my annual medical expenses were $2,000 higher in 2015 than they were in 2010.

As Obama Preps To Send Troops Into Syria The US Gov’t Is Already Planning Their Next Major Coup

A nonviolent coup to depose a democratically-elected president and install some of the most corrupt politicians — who, not coincidentally happen to be favored by the U.S. political establishment — is currently underway in Brazil. As the public’s attention zeroes on the readying of troops for deployment to Syria, the U.S. government has been able to quietly lend its approval to the crooked and baseless move to oust Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. Indeed, though the controversy over quintupling U.S. ground troops in Syria — despite vows by the Obama administration at least 16 times there would be ‘no boots on the ground’ — constitutes a valid and pertinent debate, it can’t be allowed to obfuscate what’s taking place in Brazil. To understand the importance of the ongoing tumult, you need only look at who matters to both the Brazilian and U.S. political elite — and it clearly isn’t the 54 million people who re-elected Brazil’s first female president just 18 months ago.

Market Analyst: “Nothing Is Real… All Of This is Being Played To Keep People Believing The System Is Working” - Mac Slavo

President Obama has suggested that people like Greg Mannarino who are exposing the fraud for what it is are just peddling fiction. And just this week the President argued that he saved the world from a great depression and that the closing credits of the 2008 crash movie “The Big Short” were inaccurate when they claimed that nothing has been done to fundamentally curb the fraud and fix the system under his administration. But as Mannarino notes, the President and his central bank cohorts are making these statements because the system is so fragile that if the public senses even the smallest problem it could derail the entire thing:

Let’s just look at the stock market… there’s no possible way at this time that these multiples can be justified with regard to what’s occurring here with the price action of the overall market… meanwhile, the market continues to rise.

Why We're So Unhealthy

The long lists of contributory factors to our growing ill-health distract us from the real source of our national health crisis: our food/illness/healthcare system is sick, and so it’s no wonder we’re sick, too. The only possible result of our unhealthy food/illness/healthcare care system is ill-health.

Breaking: Baghdad State of Emergency, Green Zone Stormed

Supporters of Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr have stormed Baghdad’s highly fortified, US established Green Zone, also home to the US Embassy, uninvited, the biggest in the world.

All staff of the Japanese, French, British, Australian, Jordanian, Emirates and Saudi Arabia Embassies have moved in to into the American Embassy, it is being reported.

Entrances have been reported sealed and tight security imposed to protect the Iraq Central Bank and other government banks, says an unconfirmed report. However, the Guardian contradicts stating that: “A guard at a checkpoint said the protesters had not been searched before entering. About ten members of the armed group loyal to Sadr were checking protesters cursorily while government security forces who usually conduct careful searches with bomb-sniffing dogs stood by the side.” (1)

Moreover: “Rudaw TV showed protesters chanting and taking selfies inside the parliament chamber where moments earlier MPs had been meeting.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, the US government's nightmare scenario, which I predicted might well happen some weeks ago, has actually begun to unfold in Iraq; and none of the US government's options look terribly good right now.

Any attempt at a decap strike against the popular Shiite Cleric, Muqtada Al Sadr, who has demanded a massive change in the way this country does business, will probably start a revolution, leaving no US military personnel or financial asset, safe in this country.

The US military could, wisely and intelligently, leave the country completely, but that would telegraph, painfully clearly, that the invasion and occupation of Iraq had been one hell of a huge mistake; and the US government and military are pathologically incapable of admitting, for all the blood and money spent, that they have made a mistake.

So what I think the US military and government officials will attempt to do is to flood the country with a massive infusion of more troops; however, that may well be way too little, and way too late.

Remember; it was Muqtada Al Sadr around whose leadership was formed the Mahdi Army, a formidable military group.

Under the current circumstances, I would imagine that he could "get the band back together", i.e., reconstitute that army, with lightning speed, and will fight any elements, including the US military, which prevent the Iraqi people from getting their country back.

Unfortunately for the US government, its members' collective and pathological inability to think any scenario through to its logical conclusion has been a blight on both foreign and domestic policy; the situation on the ground in Iraq suffers from the same lack of disciplined vision.

And the US government and its military are not going to have a "Saigon Moment" if Muqtada Al Sadr's movement is victorious; the US government will have a "Tehran 1979 moment".

And the brutal truth here is, the US government has brought this upon itself, and has no one else but itself to blame, if and when Baghdad falls.

President Obama’s Race for the “Imperial Legacy”: A World of Chaos and Disintegration

The Obama regime is desperate to overcome the consequences of his political, military and economic failures of the past six years and establish the US as the uncontested global economic and military power.

At this stage, Obama’s supreme goal is to leave an enduring legacy, where he will have: (1) surrounded and weakened Russia and China; (2) re-converted Latin America into an authoritarian free-trade backyard for US plunder; (3) turned the Middle East and North Africa into a bloody playpen for Arab and Jewish dictators bent on brutalizing whole nations and turning millions into refugees to flood Europe and elsewhere.

Once this ‘legacy’ is established, our ‘Historic Black President’ can boast that he has dragged our ‘great nation’ into more wars for longer periods of time, costing more diverse human lives and creating more desperate refugees than any previous US President, all the while polarizing and impoverishing the great mass of working Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the exception of the P5+1 deal with Iran, everything this man has touched, geopolitically, or economically, has become an absolutely and thoroughly wrecked, epic fail.

This desire to lock in his "legacy" is obviously driving Obama to set up conditions where it is only a matter of time, in the twilight of his presidency, that we will be at war with both Russia and China.

I would like to politely suggest that these wars will be absolutely suicidal for this country, because right now, the American military doesn't have the weaponry, the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a war with Russia and China.

A narcissist of the highest order, President Obama is pathologically incapable of taking responsibility for anything wrong which has gone on in this country during his watch; that is a dangerous quality in any governmental leader, let alone the person with the honorific title "President of the Free World".

LETTER DETAILS FBI PLAN FOR SECRETIVE ANTI-RADICALIZATION COMMITTEES

OF THE PLANS put forward by the federal government to identify and stop budding terrorists, among the least understood are the FBI’s “Shared Responsibility Committees.”

The idea of the committees is to enlist counselors, social workers, religious figures, and other community members to intervene with people the FBI thinks are in danger of radicalizing — the sort of alternative to prosecution and jail time many experts have been clamoring for. But civil liberties groups worry the committees could become just a ruse to expand the FBI’s network of informants, and the government has refused to provide details about the program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, I know a way to absolutely stop terrorism and radicalization against the US and US interests, and it's pretty simple, really.

All the US government and military has to do is to stop mucking about with other peoples' countries, expropriating resources to which they have no moral right.

There, problem solved; wasn't that easy?!?!?

Ukraine nearly doubles consumer gas prices to secure IMF aid

Urkaine's cash-strapped government on Wednesday nearly doubled average household gas tariffs in order to secure the release of billions of dollars in frozen IMF and other Western aid.
The long-delayed step is likely to play poorly with people who have already suffered from cutbacks imposed under an austerity plan set by the International Monetary Fund when it approved Kiev's $17.5-billion (15.5-billion-euro) rescue loan in 2014.
Former prime minister and current populist Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party leader Yulia Tymoshenko called the rate hike "a crime".
But it was immediately hailed by US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt as a "big step forward for Ukraine's energy independence."

Visiting US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland on Wednesday also stressed that Washington's assistance was "tied to Ukraine staying on the reform course" that included strict and timely compliance with the IMF's programme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder, with this incredibly steep hike in energy prices, how many Ukrainians will freeze this coming winter, because they don't have the money to pay, and just how long before the Ukrainian people will demand their government back, and held accountable?

America's 21st Century Government: The Worst In This Country's History?

While future historians will make that judgment, this government is, without question, the worst I have witnessed in my lifetime. Specifically, I'm speaking of the government we have had in place since this country's entry into the 21st Century.

This assessment includes both the Bush and the Obama administrations, the Congress, together with various other government departments and agencies from the State and Defense Departments to the Pentagon and the CIA. The degree of incompetence and lack of wisdom and judgment in governing this nation is simply astounding.

Why do I call this the worst government; what are the facts and the evidence that would support this premise? While we could compile an endless list of its shortcomings let's concentrate on just 5 areas in which it is completely failing this country and its citizens:

Labour Has A Jewish Problem; it is dominated by Zionist Oligarchs

Jeremy Corbyn, the man who just a few months ago was a ‘hope for a change,’ is a wimp. For months, the man has unconditionally surrendered to the Jewish lobby. He has systematically betrayed each of his professed core principles. Not surprisingly, the legendary ‘Left Icon’ has even betrayed his friends.

Leftists tend to call each other comrade; they shove the word ‘comradeship’ into every political statement. Apparently, they are unable to grasp what comradeship is all about. Corbyn’s ‘comradeship’ was on display when he failed to stand up for the heroic Ken Livingstone who told the well-established and undeniable truth about Hitler’s support of Zionism and the Havara Agreement. Corbyn just ran away with his tail between his legs.

US govt quietly tweaks rules to let cops, Feds hack computers anywhere, anytime

On Thursday the US Supreme Court approved a change to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. It sounds innocuous, but the effects will be felt around the world. Under today's rules, US cops and FBI agents need to know where a computer is before they can get a warrant to directly hack the machine – because they have to ensure the judge and court they approach for the warrant has geographical jurisdiction over the physical location of the computer. In other words, a district judge can't issue a search warrant against someone outside her district

AS MORE AMERICAN BOOTS HIT THE GROUND IN SYRIA, U.S. PARSES “BOOTS” AND “GROUND”

After President Obama announced on Monday that he would deploy 250 additional special operations troops to Syria, State Department spokesperson John Kirby tried to deny that Obama had ever promised not to send “boots on the ground” there.

“There was never this ‘no boots on the ground,’” said Kirby. “I don’t know where this keeps coming from.”

The problem for Kirby was that Obama has repeated the promise at least 16 times since 2013:

For instance, on August 30, 2013, Obama said: “We’re not considering any boots-on-the-ground approach.”

On September 10, 2013, he said: “Many of you have asked, won’t this put us on a slippery slope to another war? One man wrote to me that we are ‘still recovering from our involvement in Iraq.’ A veteran put it more bluntly: ‘This nation is sick and tired of war.’ My answer is simple: I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria.”

On September 7, 2014, he said: “In Syria, the boots on the ground have to be Syrian.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The long memory of the net hurls the defy at this, and many other issues.

And we all know, now, when members of the Obama Administration lie; they open their mouths... and words come out of them.

US GENERAL FINALLY TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT OUR TROOPS ARE DOING IN IRAQ

Speaking yesterday at the Senate Armed Services Committee, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Joe Dunford confirmed that US troops in Iraq are “fighting and dying” in combat operations, confirming that the October 22 death of a Army sergeant was in combat.

That admission is a big one, as US officials have danced around the question of “combat troops” by presenting the troops being deployed to Iraq, and elsewhere in the region, as “trainers” or “advisers” in official comments.

Sen. Dan Sullivan (R – AK) pushed particularly hard on the matter, saying he believes the attempt to present Iraq as “non-combat” diminishes the sacrifices of the soldiers slain in the country, and that it iss important to “level with the American people.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current Administration has simply undercut any shred of credibility it might once have had by pathologically lying to the American people about everything, from war to employment numbers; you cannot believe anything that anyone says from the Obama Administration, and they have no one to blame but themselves for this.

America’s Coming Tax Increase

The debt held by the public has approximately doubled since President Obama took office and is now equal to 74% of gross domestic product. It is true that with the right policy mix, economic growth—stuck at just over 2% during the Obama “recovery”—will help close federal deficits and pay down the debt. At the end of World War II, for example, the debt-to-GDP ratio was at 104% and shrank to a low of 23% by 1974. But letting growth or future belt-tightening close the gap is the exception, not the rule. More often, higher taxes are the result.

WILL 2016 BE THE YEAR OF THE MULTINATIONAL BANK BAIL IN ?

Enter the Bail-In (not to be confused with Bruce Lee's enter the dragon, although one might see a correlation with the bank depositors being the recipients of financial karate chops). In the infinite wisdom of many political leaders, the bail-in paradigm is now upon us with the Austrian Government also saying JA, JA to implementing the bail-in option for Hypo Alpe Adria (or should we say Heta Asset Resolution?). And of course all European Union nations were required to pass bail-in legislation for their respective countries in 2016, so do not think this applies only to Austria alone (in fact, the bail-in paradigm is also in place in Canada and the US, so do think this is native to Europe only either). And regarding this matter, a news story from late 2015 reported that The European Commission was taking legal action against the Netherlands and Luxembourg for failing to implement banking bail-in initiatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you think this cannot happen here in the US, you need to to think again, and please, very carefully.

Invest what you can in small amounts of silver and gold. Keep all currency you absolutely do not need to pay the bills under your own personal control; and do not think for one second that bank safe deposit boxes are actually "safe", during a time of financial emergency. They, and their contents can be expropriated during a time of financial stress.

As reported on 31 March, 2015 at infowars.com:

According to in-house memos now circulating, the DHS has issued orders to banks across America which announce to them that “under the Patriot Act” the DHS has the absolute right to seize, without any warrant whatsoever, any and all customer bank accounts, to make “periodic and unannounced” visits to any bank to open and inspect the contents of “selected safe deposit boxes.” Further, the DHS “shall, at the discretion of the agent supervising the search, remove, photograph or seize as evidence” any of the following items “bar gold, gold coins, firearms of any kind unless manufactured prior to 1878, documents such as passports or foreign bank account records, pornography or any material that, in the opinion of the agent, shall be deemed of to be of a contraband nature.” DHS memos also state that banks are informed that any bank employee, on any level, that releases “improper” “classified DHS Security information” to any member of the public, to include the customers whose boxes have been clandestinely opened and inspected and “any other party, to include members of the media” and further “that the posting of any such information on the internet will be grounds for the immediate termination of the said employee or employees and their prosecution under the Patriot Act.” Safety deposit box holders and depositors are not given advanced notice when failed banks shut their doors. If people have their emergency money in a safe deposit box or an account in a bank that closes, they will not be allowed into the bank to get it out. They can knock on the door and beg to get in but the sheriff’s department or whoever is handling the closure will simply say “no” because they are just following orders.

And here is another confirmation, appearing 3 April 2013, from huffingtonpost.com, giving a little more background on these procedures:

Confiscating the customer deposits in Cyprus banks, it seems, was not a one-off, desperate idea of a few eurozone troika officials scrambling to salvage their balance sheets. A joint paper by the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Bank of England dated December 10, 2012, shows that these plans have been long in the making; that they originated with the G20 Financial Stability Board in Basel, Switzerland (discussed earlier here); and that the result will be to deliver clear title to the banks of depositor funds. New Zealand has a similar directive, discussed earlier here. Few depositors realize that legally, the bank owns the depositor’s funds as soon as they are put in the bank. Our money becomes the bank’s, and we become unsecured creditors holding IOUs. (See here and here.) But until now, the bank has been obligated to pay the money back as cash on demand. Under the FDIC-BOE plan, our IOUs will be converted into “bank equity.” The bank will get the money and we will get stock in the bank. With any luck we may be able to sell the stock to someone else, but when and at what price? Most people keep a deposit account so they can have ready cash to pay the bills.

Dear Mainstream Media, Don’t You Dare Whitewash Anti-Trump Violence

***
Check out the LA Times headline: Protests rage outside Trump rally in Orange County; 17 arrested, police car smashed.
“Demonstrators”??? This is a very deliberate use of language. When you have a righteous cause, you’re a “demonstrator.” The Times is using language equating these thugs with someone marching in Selma. “Demonstrators” sounds heroic.
***
The Washington Post used the morally-neutral term “clashed.”
It’s just a clash, folks. Who knows how it started?
***
Let’s state this as plainly as possible: Nothing Trump has done justifies a violent response. Nothing. Yet the more the media whitewashes this violence and applies its typical double standard to left-wing thugs, the more the violence will escalate.

For Nebraska’s Poor, Get Sick and Get Sued

Cheap court fees and looser rules make suing over medical debts as small as $60 easy. Every year Nebraska collection agencies file lawsuits by the tens of thousands.

Two years ago, the president of Credit Management Services, a collection agency in Grand Island, Nebraska, presented a struggling local family with the keys to a used 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. To commemorate the donation, the company held a ceremony that concluded outside its offices, where the couple and their two young girls could try out their new car.

The family’s story was dire: their eight-year-old daughter’s failing kidney had led to multiple surgeries and a deluge of medical bills, according to an article in the local newspaper.

But CMS played another role in the family’s life, one the article didn’t mention. The company had previously sued the couple eight times over unpaid medical bills and garnished both of their wages. As recently as two weeks earlier, CMS had seized $156, a quarter of the girl’s father’s paycheck.

Jeb! Is Back: Bush Calls for Brokered Convention, Warns Trump Will Lose White House and Congress 'in a Landslide'

In his first television interview since dropping out of the 2016 race in February, Jeb Bush said he was "hopeful" that a contested convention would block Donald Trump from winning the GOP nomination.

"There's a possibility that he won't get 50 percent on the first ballot," Bush told CNN's Jamie Gangel on Friday. "And if he doesn't do that, there are a whole lot of people who don't believe he's the proper guy."

Asked whether he thinks the Republican party should rally around Trump if he does become the nominee, Bush, who has publicly endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, simply replied, "I think they should support Ted Cruz."

OREGON INTELLIGENCE COP SPIED ON DIRECTOR OF STATE CIVIL RIGHTS OFFICE FOR TWEETING BLACK LIVES MATTER

In Oregon, these toxic ingredients combined to produce racist, illegal surveillance of a government employee’s First Amendment protected speech. Specifically, a police intelligence officer assigned to the local “fusion center” compiled a report on the Director of the state Department of Justice’s Civil Rights division’s tweets, warning his superiors that the civil rights Director’s commentary about police violence against Black Americans constituted threats to law enforcement. The memo describing these tweets was ultimately passed to the Attorney General, who immediately called for its author to be put on leave and commissioned an independent investigation. The results of that investigation were published in an April 6, 2016 report. The remarkable document shines a light into a place most Americans don’t have access to, but which has an outsized influence in 21st century American life: the shadowy local surveillance infrastructure established in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Bill Nye (not a real “science guy,” FYI), who entertains the idea of throwing climate skeptics in the slammer, warned the film’s producer, Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano, that “Climate Hustle’s” content endangers not just the nation, but also the world:

On February 5, 2015, Jeremy Lett was physically attacked, then shot in the torso five times while walking outside his apartment. He died in the hospital the next day.

When Google Photos Auto-Generated an Album From My Trip to Palestine and Called It ‘Trip to Israel’

The pictures and videos I captured during my first trip to Palestine in October 2010 came at a cost that included several hours of detention and interrogations at the Tel Aviv airport, courtesy of the fine members of the Israeli military, Shin Bet and the Ministry of the Interior. After a 13-hour international flight, I was held for hours without food or water — and I was forced to use the single-toilet restroom with the door cracked open and a roomful of men on the other side.

And that was just the beginning of incessant stops, searches and other harassment I was subjected to throughout my trip because of the scarf I wear on my head (the non-Muslims in our group did not face the same treatment).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will not have been the first time in which Google has engaged in blatant pro-Israeli propaganda, and this lady has every reason to feel outraged by this treatment.

SWAT RAIDS FAMILY, TERRORIZES DISABLED WOMAN & ARRESTS FAMILY MEMBERS — WHOOPS, WRONG HOUSE

Philadelphia, PA – Police apologized on Wednesday after raiding an innocent family’s home and traumatizing a disabled woman who nearly fell down the stairs. Touted as “innovative” and “state-of-the-art,” the Real Time Crime Center mistakenly directed officers to the wrong house and another botched raid.

Around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, cops suddenly broke down the Jardine family’s door and raided their home while holding them at gunpoint. Despite the fact that the family had committed no crime, officers ordered them out of their rooms and placed them in handcuffs during the middle of the night.

“I’m coming out of the shower, and there’s a Pump Action Rifle to my chest,” Angel Jardine told WPVI. “He’s just like, ‘Put your hands up.’ Rifle in my chest, and I’m like, ‘Whoa.’”

Physically impaired after an ex-boyfriend shot her in the head, forty-eight-year-old Ronik Jardine had been asleep in her bed when the cops woke her up and immediately ordered her out of the room.

“NESTLÉ IS TRYING TO BREAK US” TOWN FIGHTS TO STOP BOTTLED WATER MEGACORP FROM STEALING THEIR WATER

A small town in Pennsylvania is the latest to be targeted by Nestlé Waters North America, which, in typical fashion, is seeking to extract millions of gallons of freshwater to bottle and sell for an obscene profit — whether or not local residents approve.

Nestlé sneakily began testing waters in the Kunkeltown area as far back as 2012; but residents wouldn’t have discovered the desire for its water at all had the mega-corporation not rented an office in the community center, as Truthout reported. In fact, Nestlé’s plans comprise no small operation, as Truthout explained:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's not only the obscene profits from these kinds of practices; it is also that the people who live here get absolutely nothing from Nestle's sale of that water.

But that having been said, it appears that the corporate managers of Nestle have the morals of a dead tree stump, and are so collectively crooked that they have to screw their socks on in the morning.

(And I WILL get angry emails from dead tree stumps, protesting that last characterization, I can assure you!!)

The Electronic Intifada can reveal that a key player in Labour’s “anti-Semitism crisis” covered up his involvement in the Israel lobby.

Most Labour members so accused are in reality being attacked for expressing opinions in favor of Palestinian human rights and particularly for supporting the boycott of Israel.

Labour activists, many of them Jews, have told The Electronic Intifada that false accusations of anti-Semitism are being used as a weapon against Corbyn by the party’s right-wing.

Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

On Wednesday night, former House Speaker John Boehner bluntly called GOP candidate Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.”

When asked for his opinion about the Texas senator, Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

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

The suspect, a former Philadelphia Police Department sergeant, has not been charged with any child porn crimes.

U.S. Catholic Bishops Join Mormons, Salvation Army, Others In USSC Amicus Brief Supporting Equal Religious Rights

An obscure but very interesting case involving the resurfacing of a Lutheran school playground is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. A court in Missouri has ruled that the state can exclude a Lutheran school from its scrap tire program, which uses recycled rubber to resurface asphalt playgrounds. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who jointly filed a 40-page amicus brief along with Protestant groups in support of the Lutheran school, issued a press release noting, "The case involves a Free Exercise Clause challenge to a decision by the State of Missouri denying a grant for playground resurfacing to an otherwise eligible religious school solely because of its religious affiliation." The amicus brief is actually quite interesting reading, chock-full of long-established legal precedents and case law regarding benefits given to religious organizations by the state.
