Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

Officials with JADE HELM 15, as the training is called, will lay out details of their months-long training to commissioners at their Monday, April 27 Commissioner Court meeting. Officials say the training, which will be held in Bastrop County from July 15 to Sept. 15, will develop techniques and tactics needed by the military to defend U.S. interests around the globe.

FDIC Plots a Bank Heist Involving YOUR Accounts

The bail-in is another weapon in the government’s arsenal of capital controls meant to reward Wall Street cronies and separate you from your money.

We’ve long been familiar with capital controls, such as daily limits on bank withdrawals. Add that to seven years of microscopic interest rates cannibalizing savers’ nest eggs combined with planned inflation stealing your money while you sleep. But unlike the drip-drip we’re used to, the bail-in will come upon you quickly, harshly, and with finality.

£30bn black hole in Tory spending plans, tax think tank reveals

Chancellor George Osborne is facing a £30 billion black hole in his budgetary plans if he is to honor the Conservative Party’s general election pledges and still meet the party’s deficit-slashing targets by 2020, the Institute for Fiscal Studies warns.

RUBIO FAVORITE IN $HELDON $WEEP$TAKE$

Before Iowa and New Hampshire, GOP candidates are competing in the Sheldon Adelson primary, and some will travel to his posh Venetian hotel in Las Vegas this weekend in hopes of winning it. But one candidate — Marco Rubio — has emerged as the clear front-runner, according to nearly a half-dozen sources close to the multibillionaire casino mogul.

In recent weeks, Adelson, who spent $100 million on the 2012 campaign and could easily match that figure in 2016, has told friends that he views the Florida senator, whose hawkish defense views and unwavering support for Israel align with his own, as a fresh face who is “the future of the Republican Party.” He has also said that Rubio’s Cuban heritage and youth would give the party a strong opportunity to expand its brand and win the White House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So elections, in this country, have come to this; it is no longer We the People who actually elect Presidents; it is the large corporations and front-men for Israel who buy candidates to fulfill their agendas, just as one would buy a side of beef.

And what is most depressing as to how this process has evolved, is the hard reality that the needs and concerns of working Americans are completely eclipsed by the needs and concerns of a foreign nation, and the huge corporations, which literally write most of the legislation under which the rest of us are forced to live.

Elections in the US are a Kabuki-like process, engineered to give the citizens of this country the illusion that they have some, even minor, control over their destinies when they absolutely do not.

And if you want a good look at how that works, take a look at what we know of the TPA:

Congress’ tax committees announced an agreement Thursday to speed through a bill to give President Barack Obama the fast-track authority that he will need to push mammoth new trade deals through Congress. While many believed a deal was in the works, news that it was actually done came as a surprise to members of both the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee, which had been called to a hearing on the deal less than 12 hours earlier. The “trade promotion authority” bill, or TPA, would allow the White House to cut new trade deals with Asian and European nations, and then pass them through Congress using expedited procedures. Under these rules, the deals cannot be amended or obstructed, and they get a simple up-or-down vote.

Again, great for corporations, but generally lousy for We the People.

Any questions, folks?!?

Whistleblowers reveal criminal practices of pharmaceutical industry in stunning interviews

Before you rush out to get the MMR vaccine for your child or sign up for the latest statin or antidepressant pharmaceutical pill in obedience to the television, you might want to first consider what several former pill pushers-turned-whistleblowers have to say about how drugs and vaccines are actually approved, marketed and dispensed to the masses in today's corrupt regulatory paradigm.

"Certified Health Nut" Troy Casey recently interviewed three former drug industry employees who divulged that drug companies routinely break the law in order to reap windfall profits. Most conventional doctors have also become nothing more than legal drug pushers, these whistleblowers revealed, regularly accepting bribes from drug industry reps in exchange for prescribing dangerous drugs to patients.

How Wall St Has Quietly Bilked Billions from Cities Across the US

A recent report by Saqib Bhatti of the Roosevelt Institute describes a number of financial deals between Wall Street and municipalities as predatory. Bhatti asserts that these dirty transactions have forced cities and states to cut essential services to pay off the financial sector. On Tuesday, Bhatti's ReFund America project issued a new report specifically directed at the financial problems of Chicago and calling on the city to fight back in the courts and elsewhere against these deals.

Lindsey Graham’s “All-Jewish Cabinet”

He described “the means” as the biggest hurdle facing his potential campaign, adding:

If I put together a finance team that will make me financially competitive enough to stay in this thing… I may have the first all-Jewish cabinet in America because of the pro-Israel funding. [Chuckles.] Bottom line is, I’ve got a lot of support from the pro-Israel funding.

Indeed, pro-Israel heavyweights, such as Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer, and other heavyweight donors of the Republican Jewish Coalition, are emerging as the go-to funders of the Republican Party. Graham’s observation—whether meant lightly or not (or uttered under the influence of the Riesling)— tends to confirm that access to their millions is critical to the fortunes of any Republican presidential candidate in 2016.

House Passes Cybersecurity Bill Despite Privacy Protests

Congress is hellbent on passing a cybersecurity bill that can stop the wave of hacker breaches hitting American corporations. And they’re not letting the protests of a few dozen privacy and civil liberties organizations get in their way. On Wednesday the House of Representatives voted 307-116 to pass the Protecting Cyber Networks Act, a bill designed to allow more fluid sharing of cybersecurity threat data between corporations and government agencies. That new system for sharing information is designed to act as a real-time immune system against hacker attacks, allowing companies to warn one another via government intermediaries about the tools and techniques of advanced hackers. But privacy critics say it also threatens to open up a new backchannel for surveillance of American citizens, in some cases granting the same companies legal immunity to share their users’ private data with government agencies that include the NSA.

LIBOR investigation ends with spectacular fizzle

Banker: “can we have a high 6mth libor today pls gezzer?” LIBOR Submitter, “sure dude, where wld you like it mate ?”

That’s just one of countless egregious examples of LIBOR manipulation. Yet, after countless months of investigation and worldwide scandal, the controversial LIBOR manipulation case has ended this morning with a fine but no jail time – a spectacular fizzle:

Moments ago the NY Department for Financial Services announced that Deutsche Bank would pay $2.5 billion “in connection with the manipulation of the benchmark interest rates, including the London Interbank Offered Bank (“LIBOR”), the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (“EURIBOR”) and Euroyen Tokyo Interbank Offered Rate (“TIBOR”) (collectively, “IBOR”).”

Most importantly for DB’s 98,138 employees is that while DB will “terminate and ban individual employees who engaged in misconduct” nobody will go to jail. Again.

THE U.S. GOLD MARKET: Completely Insane

I am not blaming Americans, as they have been totally brainwashed by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve into believing that gold is something you wear, not invest in.

This is certainly proven by the data shown in the chart below. These figures come from the World Gold Council Full Year Demand Trends Reports, and while it may be true that the data is manipulated or incomplete, it’s the best we can go by. And I believe it gives us a pretty good idea of the insanity taking place in the good ole US of A.

Hillary Clinton: Arkancide

Arkancide is the unfortunate habit of potential witnesses to the Clintons' dirty dealings in Arkansas suddenly deciding to shoot themselves twice in the back of the head. Police and Coroners in Arkansas, notably Fahmy Malak who answered to Governor Bill Clinton, automatically described these shootings as "suicides."

After Bill Clinton became President the phenomenon spilled over to Washington D.C. when Hillary Clinton's ex-lover Vincent Foster was "Arkancided."

HOLOHOAX MAGIC: FITTING 13 STADIUMS INTO 1 GARAGE

You see, we are expected to believe that 1.1 million people (officially and suspiciously reduced from the 4 million that had been claimed for 50 years!) were herded into a "gas chamber" the size of a 3-car garage, then killed by bug-spray (Zyklon B), right under the noses of Red Cross camp inspectors, while inmate soccer games were going on in an adjacent field.

The hard-working killers (or their slaves) then had to enter the poison room (perhaps wearing HazMat suits?), pick up each dead body one at a time, and then feed them one-by-one into a funeral parlor sized oven for cremation. Whatever happened to that famed German efficiency?

Ex-CIA chief will be sentenced for leaking military secrets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Former CIA Director David Petraeus, whose career was destroyed by an extramarital affair with his biographer, was expected to be sentenced Thursday in federal court in Charlotte for giving her classified material while she was working on the book.

Petraeus will appear at the sentencing, which comes two months after he agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.

The plea agreement carries a possible sentence of up to a year in prison. In court papers, prosecutors recommended two years of probation and a $40,000 fine. But the judge is not bound by that and could still impose a prison sentence.

The agreement was filed in Charlotte, where Paula Broadwell, the general's biographer and former lover, lives with her husband and children.

From Vietnam to ISIS: Canada needs to apologize

As Canadians pat themselves on the back for taking in Vietnamese refugees at the end of the 1970s, it is perhaps an appropriate time for Canada to apologize to the Vietnamese people for our collective role in creating the refugee flow in the first place.

Canada played a significant role in decimating their country (as well as Laos and Cambodia), aiding and abetting, for example, the permanent alteration of an entire people's gene pool through the production and supply of chemical and biological warfare agents for U.S. forces. The fallout was subsequent generations marked by grotesque physical deformities and severely retarded brain and motor function development. Indeed, Canada produced the chemical defoliant Agent Orange, a dioxin-laced carcinogen, 43 million litres of which were dumped by the U.S. Air Force (this on top of 30 million litres of related defoliants). U.S. soldiers who came home from Vietnam having been soaked in the stuff experienced similar horrors.

California's SB277 mandatory vaccination bill passes Senate committee after votes rigged, public testimony silenced

After California's vaccine mandate bill SB277 was halted last week with an outcry of public outrage against it, the pro-vaccine mafia machine went to work. Democratic Sens. Ben Allen of Santa Monica and Richard Pan of Sacramento helped pursue a vote rigging agenda to replace seats on the committee with pro-vaccine industry sellouts. A new democrat, Sen. Bill Monning, was chosen to fill a vacant seat, and with his vote in favor of stripping Californians of vaccine exemption rights, SB277 was approved today.

BEX ALERT - Another study finds no link between MMR vaccine and autism

Another scientific study has added to what has become a mountain of evidence that there is no link between autism and the vaccine that prevents measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).

These latest findings are based on a study of 95,000 U.S. children. Among the kids, approximately two per cent had an older sibling diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The study was basically funded by UnitedHealth, a health insurance provider, who wants to evade having to pay victims of vaccine-induced autism.

Patriot Act Gets New Lease on Life From McConnell Bill

Sen. McConnell's legislation "to extend authority relating to roving surveillance, access to business records, and individual terrorists as agents of foreign powers under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978..." isn't yet formally on the Senate calendar, but that shouldn't be too much of an obstacle for McConnell. He intends to "bypass the traditional committee process," according to Dustin Volz at National Journal.

McConnell is a long-time fan of the surveillance state.

Time to Wake up to some Realities on the Iran Deal

Too many cooks spoil the broth, and that appears to be precisely what the Senate had in mind.

Evidently Obama has concluded that a veto-proof majority in both Houses stood behind the Foreign Relations Committee bill, and reluctantly conceded. But that wrests control of the process out of the hands of the Administration. The Iran deal may have died this afternoon.

To make sense of the events that have led to the current negotiations over Iran’s so-called nuclear ambitions, certain elemental realities should be highlighted:

Fast Tracking Democracy to Hell: Why the Trans-Pacific Partnership Is a Rotten Deal

Free traders in Congress formally proposed last week that lawmakers relax, put their feet up and neglect the rigor of legislative review for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade scheme.

The TPP is a secret deal among 12 Pacific Rim nations that was covertly negotiated by unelected officials and corporate bosses. It’s so clandestine that lawmakers elected to represent the American people were refused access to the deliberations. It would expand secret trade tribunals that corporations use to sue governments over democratically established laws and win compensation from taxpayers.

After Lord Janner I now believe the Establishment DOES shamelessly twist justice to protect its own

There was a time when I regarded the idea of an ‘Establishment cover-up’ with a pinch of salt. Was it really plausible that the powers-that-be should act in concert over a prolonged period of time to suppress the truth?

Even if they attempted to do so, surely some decent person would sooner or later speak out, or inform the Press. It seemed unlikely that evil on a vast scale could be concealed more or less indefinitely in what is supposed to be a free and open society.

I’m afraid a succession of sex abuse cases have blown apart my preconceptions. It’s plain beyond any dispute that politicians, senior policemen and members of the security services have conspired to protect abusers because they were considered important, and to deny their victims justice.

Confirmed: Lobbyists Calling the Shots for SB277; Community Outpour Ignored

After passing the Sacramento Health Committee vote, the bill was delayed as committee chair Senator Carol Liu wisely told the bill’s author Richard Pan “If I were you, I would not take a vote today.” At the conclusion of the vote, Liu asked Senator Pan point blank how he wanted to proceed. To this, Pan, appearing to have no power to make the decision, turned to lobbyists Jodi Hicks and Janus Norman for advice. It is telling that, here, the authors Senator Pan and Ben Allen appear to be told what to do and how to do it. Pan is making his decisions based not on the thousands of families that showed up in protest, but from lobbyists. When Richard Pan turns to Hicks and Norman for his orders, it becomes clear that these individuals are the ones behind senate bill 277.

Hillary's back in first class at end of New Hampshire campaign trip where she railed against the rich – after 80 mph race to BOSTON to catch flight with elite seats

Hillary Clinton ended her whirlwind New Hampshire campaign swing on Tuesday afternoon in another state entirely, taking taxpayers for an 80 miles-per-hour ride all the way to Boston – to catch a flight with first class seats.

Her Secret Service-provided 'Scooby' van motored from Concord to Boston Logan International Airport, escorted by troopers from both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

She arrived in time to take a 7:00 p.m. US Airways shuttle to Washington, D.C. On the way, her motorcade passed exits to the Manchester, N.H. airport, which was 55 miles closer and offered a 5:16 p.m. flight to the same destination.

The Boston flight, though, used a larger aircraft with 12 first class seats. The Manchester flight was scheduled to use a smaller plane with nothing but coach.

Twilight Zone Economics

The US government has annual income of approximately $3 Trillion and official debt in excess of $18 Trillion. This does not count other liabilities such as Fannie and Freddie, and massive unfunded liabilities. But assuming “only” $18 Trillion in debt (optimistic) the US has the same ratio as a family with $60K income and $360K in credit card debt.

But this is not recognized as a problem because the Treasury sells bonds and the Fed “prints” the currency to buy the bonds. Debt increases and the US government spends. Life is good for politicians and bankers.
