American Electorate Loses As Partisan Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Turns Outright Bizarre

The recent media frenzy surrounding Clinton and Trump's health records has accomplished little more than to, once again, expose a "press" that is becoming increasingly partisan with each passing day.

Right-leaning media outlets have spent countless hours reporting on the various health issues experienced by Clinton over the years and pointing to pictures of her falling down on the campaign trail or seemingly zoning out at times as evidence of her frailty. Meanwhile the left-leaning organizations have mostly dismissed the Hillary health concerns as conspiracy theories of right-wing nut jobs.

Like this tweet from a New York Times columnist calling on google to censor commentary on Hillary's health...

Cold War 2.0: Hillary Claims a Putin-Led 'Alt-Right' Conspiracy is Against Her

Hillary Surrogate Begs Fed to Artificially Prevent Market Crash Until Election

CHINESE GOVERNMENT CAUGHT BRIBING THE LIBERAL PARTY, LABOR PARTY AND JULIE BISHOP

The Chinese Government donations to the Liberal Party and Labor Party are part of a lot bigger problem.

I have written extensively about the corrupt donations the Parties take. Of recent times the Liberal Party has seen $4.4 million of funding withheld by the NSW Electoral Commission because the Liberal Party refuse to tell the NSW Electoral Commission were hundreds of thousands of dollars of funding came from. (Click here to read more)

Then there is also the Liberal Party and Labor Party stealing from taxpayers and laundering the money into their own bank accounts with the most recent scam run by the Liberals via a company called Parakeelia. (Click here to read more)

What these dodgy donations and the theft do is help keep corrupt politicians in power because come election time they have more money than the smaller Parties and independents to fund their election campaign.

BREAKING: Benghazi Documents FINALLY Found – Hidden In Hillary’s Deleted Email File

This week, the State Department was forced to admit in court filings it had “received positive hits” for Benghazi-related documents among the nearly 15,000 Clinton emails uncovered by the FBI during its more than year-long investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private server housed at her home during her tenure as President Obama’s first Secretary of State.

Judge Dimitrouleas gave the Department until September 13 to review the emails, in addition to other communications, and turn over responsive records, but Clinton’s former department claimed it cannot comply with the order by the deadline due to the large number of emails to be reviewed, estimating that it will take until well after the November 8 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is a solution. The State Department turns over the emails as they find them, so at least part of them are available for the voters to see!

The Turkish Invasion Of Syria As Path To "Regime Change"

Turkish supplies for the Islamic Army of Conquest offensives in South Aleppo and Latakia: arms, ammo, supplies, even artillery, tanks have been reported as flowing like water over the Turkish border Turkey is obviously not coordinating its incursion with the Syrian government which condemns it as a violation of its sovereignty. The Kremlin's impotent calls for Turkey to coordinate with Damascus while waving the old Geneva communique have been completely ignored. Unfortunately there is little they can do at this point without engaging in a full scale war with Turkey and the U.S. in Syria. Something the Kremlin lacks the will to do. Turkey/U.S. intend that their proxies take Aleppo as leverage in settlement negotiations to force Assad to step down, or partition if that fails. Both the Turkish and FSA flags, (not the Syrian flag), were raised over "liberated" Jarablus

New Book "Partners in Crime" Exposes Clinton Crime Family

By now, almost everybody, even Clinton supporters, realizes that the prominent political couple is a shady duo. But the reality is much, much worse than that. The Clinton family and its scandal-plagued “foundation” are basically a gigantic criminal enterprise through which the Clintons and their cronies enrich themselves, sell political favors, and sell out America — all while ripping off taxpayers in the United States and around the world. If participants in this “vast criminal conspiracy” are not brought to justice, the Clintons intend to expand their criminal operation and run it from the White House, putting all Americans at risk. So justice must be served — and it can be.

Video Proof: Seven Instances of Hillary's Clinton's Naked Racism

Of course Hillary Clinton is a racist whose words, policies and indifference have only increased division, despair, misery and poverty in America's predominantly black inner-cities. She stokes fear, and she preys on these communities with policies of dependence and nihilism. Trump is absolutely right when he says that Clinton sees people of color only as votes and not as human beings.

Oligarchy in action. Billionaire donors Laura and John Arnold support far more in Maryland than aerial police surveillance

From low-tech eyeglasses to high-tech spyglasses, the wealthy Texas philanthropists bankrolling secret aerial surveillance of Baltimore are no strangers to public policy initiatives in Maryland that match their charitable vision. In the spring, Laura and John Arnold gave $450,000 from their Houston-based foundation to Johns Hopkins University to support a city initiative to give free glasses to thousands of public school students to study how better vision improves school performance.

Breitbart Rises From Outlier to Potent Voice in Campaign

Breitbart News has arrived.

The opinion and news site, once a curiosity of the fringe right wing, is now an increasingly powerful voice, and virtual rallying spot, for millions of disaffected conservatives who propelled Donald J. Trump to the Republican nomination for president.

Known for gleefully bashing the old Republican establishment, Breitbart now finds itself at the center of the party’s presidential campaign. Its longtime chairman, Stephen K. Bannon, was named campaign chief by Mr. Trump, whose nationalist, conspiracy-minded message routinely mirrors the Breitbart worldview.

Mandatory Vaccination in CA: Let’s School a Federal Judge

By Jon Rappoport

Judge Sabraw: here’s something you didn’t know about the DPT shot…

I’ll repeat myself a bit here, in case you missed my last article. Then I’ll get into something else, something dangerous that a Federal Judge knows nothing about…

Federal Judge Dana Sabraw is overseeing a lawsuit against mandatory vaccination in California.

So far, Sabraw has denied a petition to suspend mandatory vaccination for school children while the case moves forward.

He believes tradition and history are on the side of forced vaccinations. That’s because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Or he’s just making it up out of thin air...

Horn exclusive! Clinton Foundation hiding donors

Hillary Clinton promised that she is coming clean about the Clinton Foundation’s big-money donors.

But as we’ve learned with the Clintons, that depends on what your definition of “IS” is!

New allegations that top donors were given high-level access in Clinton’s State Department forced her cronies to deliver one of the biggest whoppers of the campaign yet.

They claimed the Clinton Foundation is being completely open about who gave what and when.

But one visit to the foundation’s website shows that while the donor list is online, it is absolutely impossible for anyone to use it without a magnifying glass and hours of spare time.

So much for coming clean!

You can see what The Horn News discovered for yourself right here – or try to, anyway.

To find a donor, first you have to know how much they contributed – because the list isn’t sorted alphabetically. It’s sorted by price range, and then in some cases broken up into dozens of separate pages.

Utopia, Nostalgia and the Jew

Utopia, the imaginary ideal society, the Eden of collective and universal yearning is at the root of Left and progressive thought. A utopian society is the political and social goal of some leftist and progressive narratives. For others the perfect society is itself the ideological means toward redemption. No left or progressive intellectual narrative is impervious to some sort of utopian ideal.

But for about half of the American people, utopia is nostalgic. The return of the ‘American Dream,’ of being great once again – this is the idyllic dream shared by supporters of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You cannot have a perfect society (or government) until humans are perfect. The failure of the progressive/liberal system is their firm belief that humans can be "re-engineered" to perfection, based on Margaret Mead's book, "Coming of Age in Samoa", which has since been exposed as an intellectual fraud.

We Don’t Know If The Department Of Defense Is Actually Providing Security

The U.S. Army has been falsifying its accounting records to the tune of $6.5 trillion for the year, according to a recent report by Department of Defense auditors. And the Department of Defense has been falsifying its accounting on a massive scale for years, as was reported by Reuters in 2013 and others stretching back to at least 2001.

CBO: Federal Debt to Hit $28.2 Trillion Over Next Decade

At the end of this year, outstanding federal debt is expected to climb to $19.4 trillion and to rise by $8.8 trillion in the next ten years. The federal government’s budget deficit, which is the difference between how much money the government spends and how much money it takes in through tax collection, will be $590 billion by the end of 2016, $152 billion more than the previous year. Government spending is projected to increase by 5 percent, or $178 billion, while government revenue is projected to increase by less than 1 percent, or $26 billion.

How Central Banks Are Bleeding the Middle Class Dry

The Western welfare states know many ways to get rid of their enormous sovereign debt — at great cost of their citizens. Once the debt burden becomes unbearable, the government simply reforms the currency. Then, the government debt will be “adjusted” with the private wealth of the citizens. This is when the citizens will notice that their government’s sovereign debt is their own debt. But the government does not always need to make use of these large torture devices. More subtle ways, such as financial repression, are possible.

FYI : Hillary Will Abolish the Second Amendment!

Donald Trump was widely criticized by media, Democrats, and even some Republicans after he made a joke regarding Second Amendment remedies to Hillary Clinton’s plan to “essentially abolish” the Second Amendment. -- As if “reporters,” commentators, and politicians were all reading from the same script, they consistently pointed out that Clinton had no such intentions – in spite of the fact that this is exactly what she intends to do.

The President’s Leash

Can you imagine Hillary Clinton as President, with Chuck Schumer as the Senate Majority Leader, and Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House? -- A Trump presidency would be a four-year long battle with occasional, carefully worked out victories. A Hillary presidency would be an unrestricted dictatorship, which would unquestionably be absolutely corrupt.

Venezuela Cracks Down On Guns — Here’s Why We Pay Attention

Grotesquely Incompetent Judge Won’t Suspend Mandatory Vaccination

By Jon Rappoport

“Hey, let’s just make up stuff in court, it’s a party.”

I’ll keep this as simple as I can.

The infamous SB277, passed into CA law in 2015, made vaccines mandatory for school children in the state.

Last month, a lawsuit was filed, with the purpose of overturning the law. The lawyers asked Federal Judge Dana Sabraw to keep the law from going into effect while the case moves forward.

Sabraw just said no...

Scott Adams: The Mental Vote

I have a hypothesis that many voters have already voted against Trump – in their minds – months before the first absentee votes are cast. The way that works is that a pollster calls someone who is considering voting for Trump – perhaps the week after the Khan controversy – and that voter decides to punish Trump for being offensive that week. So the wannabe-Trump-supporter “votes” against Trump. But only to the pollster.

Vijay Prashad: Hillary Clinton Shows Dangerous Tendency To Go To War No Matter The Consequences

In our extended interview with scholar Vijay Prashad, he discusses the U.S. presidential election and notes that while President Obama was reticent, then-Secretary of State "Hillary Clinton led the charge against Libya. This shows, to my mind, a profound dangerous tendency to go into wars overseas, damn the consequences.

Hillary Clinton’s “Humanitarian Interventionists” Prepare for War in Syria

Defense One, the online magazine published by the self-described “neocon guy" David Bradley, has called for a no-fly zone in Syria. Evelyn N. Farkas, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a NATO operation, writes the United States is “morally complicit in the worsening humanitarian catastrophe that is Syria,” but not for the reason you might think. The United States is guilty because it has not intervened more directly. “We should be ready to enforce [a no-fly zone] through military force and communicate this directly to the Russian government. We should seek U.N. Security Council approval, but be prepared to proceed without it.”

THE CASE FOR DONALD TRUMP

Anyone who knows my writing and background knows I am not a conservative and certainly have little use for the right wing anywhere.
But they will also know that I despise war and that I believe America’s establishment has brought moral degradation to the country’s international affairs. It has also brought degradation to America’s own people, completely ignoring their welfare for decades, regarding them only as a herd from which to solicit votes with television advertising and from whom to collect taxes.

Lots Of Smoke Here, Hillary

Prediction: If Hillary Clinton wins, within a year of her inauguration, she will be under investigation by a special prosecutor on charges of political corruption, thereby continuing a family tradition.

For consider what the Associated Press reported this week:

The surest way for a person with private interests to get a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, or a phone call returned by her, it seems, was to dump a bundle of cash into the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary Clinton Is Spreading Islamist Extremism

If the West in general, and the United States in particular, left the Arab and Muslim world alone and in peace, we would most likely never see all those terrorist attacks, which are rocking the world from Indonesia to France. There would be no Mujahedeen and its mutation into al-Qaida; in Afghanistan or elsewhere. There would be no traces of the ISIS (or ISIL or I.S. or Daesh or however you choose to call it), in Syria, Iraq, Libya or anywhere else.

Stunning Maps Depict Collapse Of Obamacare "Coverage" In 2017

Well, as we've pointed out numerous times things are not really playing out as Obama had hoped with premiums skyrocketing (see "Obamacare On "Verge Of Collapse" As Premiums Set To Soar Again In 2017") and "competition" collapsing (see "Tennessee Insurance Commissioner Warns Obamacare "Very Near Collapse"").

The two maps below prove that point beautifully by illustrating the epic collapse of Obamacare coverage in just 1 year. A collapse that will leave a stunning number of people across the country with only 1 option for health insurance. Meanwhile, healthcare shoppers in Pinal County, Arizona will actually be left with no options in 2017 as all carriers have abandoned service there.

Watch: Scarborough slams 'pathetic' defense of Clinton Foundation

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Thursday mocked the Clinton campaign's "pathetic" defense of the Clinton Foundation, specifically the notion that it must stay open if Hillary Clinton becomes president in order to fight the AIDS epidemic.

Scarborough's comments were a response to Brian Fallon, Hillary Clinton's press secretary, who on Wednesday defended the Clinton Foundation by saying it's the key to finding a cure for AIDS.

"So no, the Clinton Foundation will not be completely shuttering its work even if Clinton wins the presidency and for good reason, they want to continue this work," Fallon said. "If any American voter is troubled by the idea that the Clintons want to keep working to solve the AIDS crisis on the side while Hillary Clinton is president, then don't vote for her."

But Scarborough was having none of it.

Hillary Clinton Enters The Media Wars

When I wrote the above, I had no idea that two days later Hillary Clinton would deliver a speech in Nevada specifically targeting a nebulous movement referred to as the “alt-right,” as well as several of the prominent websites associated with it. Never in a million years did I think Hillary herself would so publicly enter the Media Wars.

The speech itself was pretty bizarre. Although I found her effective on several fronts, I believe it will ultimately backfire by providing free publicity and fame to many of those she intended to demonize.

FDA declared veggies ‘unapproved drugs’ after NYC allowed doctors to prescribe fresh fruit and vegetables as treatment for obesity

“This program makes New York City the largest U.S. city to officially acknowledge that fruits and vegetables have a role to play in preventing chronic degenerative disease — an idea that the FDA insists is delusional. According to the FDA, there is no such thing as any fruit, vegetable, supplement or superfood that has any ability whatsoever to prevent, treat or cure any disease.

“. . . according to the FDA, the mere ‘prescribing’ of a food as something to prevent obesity automatically transforms that food into a ‘drug.’ Under current FDA regulations, then, NYC is guilty of promoting ‘unapproved drugs’ which are really just fruits and vegetables. But that’s how FDA logic works.”

Hillary Clinton Promises To Shut Down ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Websites

Freedom of speech and freedom of the press will be resigned to history under a Hillary Clinton presidency, as the Democratic nominee threatens to shut down alternative news websites and anything the establishment view as a “conspiracy theory” if she is elected President of the United States.

In a speech in Reno on Thursday, Hillary Clinton claimed that Donald Trump was embracing “dark conspiracy theories” before going on a conspiracy theory-obsessed rant in which she attacked Alex Jones and Infowars, and then claimed that Vladimir Putin was the all-powerful mastermind behind the alternative media movement.

These wild claims by Clinton echo her attempt to distract voters from the contents of the WikiLeaks DNC email release by blaming the hack on Putin and Russia – a claim that even the FBI declared had no evidence to back it up.

Gary Johnson Is Like a Box Of Chocolates: You Never Know What You’re Going to Get

Remember in the movie Forest Gump when Forest said this now-famous line? “My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

Well, he and his momma could have been talking about alleged Libertarian Gary Johnson. Just when you thought there might be a presidential candidate who truly stands for liberty and personal freedom, you end up with a box of rather surprising fruit and nuts.

Bless his heart, he seems to be really confused about a few things. First of all, I don’t think “libertarian” means what he thinks it means. Maybe he just couldn’t get nominated as a Democrat or a Republican. Secondly, his firmly held opinions seem to firmly change, depending on who he’s talking to and whether he wants to pander to the right or to the left. (At the moment, he’s leaning left.)

Johnson just can’t seem to take a consistent stance on several big issues.

BRITISH COMPANIES ARE SELLING ADVANCED SPY TECH TO AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES

Since early 2015, over a dozen UK companies have been granted licenses to export powerful telecommunications interception technology to countries around the world, Motherboard has learned. Many of these exports include IMSI-catchers, devices which can monitor large numbers of mobile phones over broad areas. Some of the UK companies were given permission to export their products to authoritarian states such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and Egypt; countries with poor human rights records that have been well-documented toabuse surveillance technology.
