The Cold Truth About Susan G. Komen and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Rick Simpson, who pioneered curing cancer with cannabis, discovered a shocking insight while attempting to share his discoveries with the Canadian government. He realized that government resistance wasn’t about using the illegal substance of THC hemp. It was simply that the cancer industry doesn’t want a cure!

There would be too much money lost, an economic resource vacuum. And the financial downturn wouldn’t be restricted to Big Pharma and the oncologists who deliver chemo. There are many affiliated medical enterprises involved with the trillion dollar cancer industry.

Big Pharma and government grant research funds to universities would dry up. Radiation treatment equipment leasing and sales would come to a halt. And those cancer fund raisers would have to call it quits.

Carl Bernstein: Hillary Email Server ‘Solidified the Impression’ as Someone ‘Who Can’t Tell the Truth’

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” veteran journalist Carl Bernstein weighed in on the controversy surrounding Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

Host Chris Cuomo asked Bernstein if Clinton was evading the truth more than other politicians, to which Bernstein said, “Politicians lie.”

“We don’t know except in terms of judging individual candidates,” Bernstein replied. “Politicians lie. Hillary Clinton has been around public life for almost 40 years now and what we see is whenever she is in any kind of trouble, she is unwilling to open up and be transparent. It has dogged her for years and years, and right now it’s the biggest problem with her campaign.”

As for the server, Bernstein argued it “solidified the impression” she was dishonest, as some polling as indicated.

Internet under attack: Hidden clause in TPP to limit free speech, journalism, online

One particularly controversial part of the provisions make it a crime to reveal corporate wrongdoing “through a computer system”. Experts have pointed out that the wording is very vague, and could lead to whistleblowers being penalized for sharing important information, and lead to journalists stopping reporting on them.

Others require that online content providers — such as YouTube and Facebook — must take down content if they receive just one complaint, as they are in the US. That will be harmful for startups looking to build such businesses since they’ll be required to have the resources to respond to every complaint, experts have pointed out.

House defeats attempt to dismantle Benghazi committee

U.S. representatives beat back an attempt Wednesday to disband the House Select Committee on Benghazi, as Republicans quashed the latest push from Democrats to try to discredit the panel ahead of a hearing later this month featuring former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Rep. Louise Slaughter, New York Democrat and ranking member of the House Rules Committee, had introduced the privileged resolution, which cited recent comments Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy made about the work of the committee and Mrs. Clinton’s sagging poll numbers.

How Putin will Win in Syria

By most accounts, the conflict had deteriorated into a stalemate. Now, with Russia in the picture, that’s changed. Now the table is clearly tilted in Syria’s favor.…

The reason Putin will succeed where the US failed in its war on ISIS, is because the Russian air-strikes are going to be accompanied by a formidable mop-up operation that will overpower the jihadi groups on the ground. This is already happening as we speak. The Russian Air Force has been pounding terrorist targets across the Idlib Governorate for the last few days as well as ISIS strongholds in the East at Raffa. Putin is going to cut through these guys like crap through a goose.

Putin is not going to stop for anything or anyone. He’s going to nail these guys while he has them in his gun-sights, then he’s going to wrap it up and go home.

Jeb Bush’s 9/11 problem

On the campaign trail in New Hampshire two weeks ago, Jeb Bush was asked a question for which he clearly wasn’t prepared, which hearkened back to Bush’s time as Florida Governor. You can see the question here.

“According to Sergeant Marty (Mike) Treanor and other law enforcement officials in Sarasota Florida, the files pertaining to 9/11 hijacker pilots Marwan Al-Shehhi and Mohamed Atta from Huffman Aviation Flight School in Venice Florida were loaded onto two Ryder trucks and driven onto a C-130 cargo plane which left Sarasota the day after 9/11,” began newly-minted radio talk show host Mike Jackman, who with his brother comprise a media outlet pols this election season can ill afford to miss appearing on called Jackman Radio.

“Is it true that you were onboard the C-130? And, if so, can you tell us what became of the files?”

According to those who were there, a certain amount of discomfort ensued. Bush, who has appeared as limp as overcooked spaghetti on the campaign trail, visibly stiffened.

The TPP: a monster too big to fail?

By Jon Rappoport

Now that all 12 nations have agreed to the text, the US Congress must vote on it. Since the Congress has already granted Obama fast-track authority, no committees will discuss it; no filibustering is permitted; no changes can be made to the text.

Again I stress: Obama was put in the White House to make TPP and similar treaties come to fruition. Failure is not an option...

Game Over Europe – a ‘Colour Revolution’ is Coming

Every time I see the old, good George Soros saying something about democracy and European values, I know that something is going to happen. This way the case of Ukraine, when George argued that democracy is the most important and when he says that European values are most important and that is why we must accept million refugees every year. How will it end? Probably as usual: fires, riots, overthrowing governments and total destabilization in Europe, more or less as it ended up recently in Ukraine. However, this time, ‘democracy’ and European values are installed on a much wider scale and by pretty determined are going to bring a ‘colour revolution’ from the Middle East to the heart of dying Europe.

Employees at company working with Clinton email server expressed concerns

Johnson indicates that a "Clinton family company," Clinton Executive Service Corp., paid for the back-up services, operated through a device called the Datto SIRIS S2000, and that the purchase was made by Platte River Networks when the server was moved from her private residence to a New Jersey-based data center in 2013.

In the letter, Johnson quotes from emails sent by and to employees at Platte River Networks, which indicate there was discussion about how the duration of data backups could be reduced, apparently at the direction of the Clinton Executive Service Corp.

Then this past August, a Platte River Networks employee wrote to a coworker that he was, "Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy (sic) s**t."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So Hillary told the back-up company to not save the backups past thirty days!

FBI Seizes Four State Department Servers in Clinton Email Probe

The FBI has seized four State Department computer servers as part of its probe into how classified information was compromised on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email system, according to people familiar with the investigation.

The four servers, which were located at the State Department’s headquarters building, were seized by the FBI several weeks ago. They are being checked by technical forensic analysts charged with determining how Top Secret material was sent to Clinton’s private email by State Department aides during her tenure as secretary from 2009 to 2013, said two people familiar with the probe. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because it is an ongoing investigation.

State Department spokesman John Kirby referred questions about the computer servers to the FBI. An FBI spokeswoman, Carol Cratty, declined to comment.

Hillary's emails WERE backed up Homeland Security committee reveals - and IT firm she used feared they were involved in 'shaddy s***'

Some of Hillary Clinton's emails may still exist on the 'cloud' thanks to a technical hiccup.

A letter by Ron Johnson, head of the Senate's Homeland Security Committee, sent to the head of a company tasked with the storage, Datto Inc. of Norwalk, Connecticut, revealed that information from Clinton's private server was accidentally transferred to an off-site server and it may still be there.

The letter, first obtained by McClatchy, also indicates that in February Clinton's team directed a company responsible for the primary care of Clinton's server, Platte River Networks, to cease saving sent emails after 30 days.

In August, around the time that the Federal Bureau of Investigations took possession of the Clinton server, an employee of Platte River, mentioned the 30-day directive in an internal email and said, 'Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy s***.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is all feeling like theater. Why is the FBI and DoJ running around to various computer companies trying to scavenge Hillary's emails. Doesn't the NSA already have them? Hillary's server, being outside the government, would have been wide open to NSA, right? NSA built all those costly data centers to copy and store all Americans' emails, right?

So one of two conclusions may be drawn from this.

1. The FBI and DoJ are putting on a dog and pony show of being thorough in investigating Hillary's email, at the end of which they will declare nothing was found (a repeat of what they did during the investigation into murdered White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster).

Or...

2. The NSA spying on Americans is a total bluff, to scare us into silence.

Take your pick.

Meanwhile...

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.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

CHINA LOOKS TO QUELL DISSENT WITH 'CITIZEN SCORES,' A NUMBER THAT TRACKS PURCHASES, OPINIONS AND SOCIAL CIRCLES

China's plan to control the hearts, minds and internet connections of its citizens continues unimpeded. That's the great thing about authoritarian regimes: rollout of mandatory programs is usually only a problem of logistics, not opposition. The Chinese government has mandated a rating system for all of its connected citizens. It looks like a credit rating but goes much deeper than just tying a measurement of financial risk to a number. It's a way of defining who someone in terms of the government's desires and aims. And its desires aren't all that honorable

Matt Drudge Challenges Obama: Give Up Your Guns

As the White House prepares more executive orders on gun control, Matt Drudge has sensationally challenged President Obama to give up his armed Secret Service protection.

During an impromptu appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Drudge also called on Hillary Clinton to relinquish her armed bodyguards.

“They’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about [danger.] I challenge Hillary, take away your Secret Service. Take it away now. Take away your Secret Service; dismiss them. Have no security around you; have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you. I dare you,” said Drudge.

The Jewish Takeover of Canada: The Case of Arthur Topham

If found guilty, this man who has said and done nothing that you and I have not said or done a thousand times, will be torn from the embrace of his wife, his family and his friends and be thrown into prison. It will be a major miscarriage of justice if this should occur.

The forthcoming trial of Arthur Topham is therefore much more than the trial of one man. Canadian justice will itself be on trial.

What is Arthur’s alleged crime? Arthur’s only crime is that he is a political dissident who has chosen to exercise his democratic right to free speech. He has spoken out eloquently about the war crimes of the state of Israel and published books on his website which are regarded as offensive to many Jews. To criticize this privileged ethnic group in Canada or to question its cherished assumptions, is, it seems, strictly taboo. This is classified as “hate speech”.

Skeptics of Trans-Pacific Partnership abound locally

The White House billed Monday's historic trade agreement between the United States and 11 Pacific Rim countries, Canada and Mexico as one that will "rewrite the rules of trade to benefit America's middle class."

But locally, skeptics of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — most notably Democrats — abound.

"Has there ever been one that helped workers in this country?" asked Dan O'Neill rhetorically. As president of the Duluth AFL-CIO Central Labor Body, O'Neill said he'll read the trade agreement when it comes available sometime in the next 90 days, but he seemed to know what he would find.

"The only ones benefiting are the big corporations," O'Neill said. "It's very disappointing to a lot of Democrats."

Dissent On Israel Not Permitted At Bernie Sanders Event

Another Zionist who puts Israel first instead of his own country.

Fast forward to 2015, this past Saturday, when Bernie Sanders, an increasingly viable contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, held one of his biggest campaign rallies to date, drawing more than 20,000 people to an event at the Boston convention center. Among those visitors were a number of young activists from Boston Students for Justice in Palestine, who were curious about Sanders’ position on the occupied territories. They had a sign with them; in a playful nod to one of Sanders’ campaign slogans, it simply asked, “Will Ya Feel The Bern For Palestine?” The activists say they were well-received by other Sanders supporters in the crowd.

The World's Silliest Empire

The next silly moment arrived at the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, where Obama, who went on for 30 minutes instead of the allotted 15 (does Mr. Silly President know how to read a clock?) managed to use up all of this time and say absolutely nothing that made any sense to anyone.

But it was Putin's speech that laid out the Empire's silliness for all to see when he scolded the US for making a bloody mess of the Middle East with its ham-handed interventions. The oft-repeated quote is “Do you understand what you have done?” but that's not quite right. The Russian «?? ???? ????????? ??????, ???? ?? ??????????» can be more accurately translated as “How can you even now fail to understand what a mess you have made?” Words matter: this is not how one talks to a superpower before an assembly of the world's leaders; this is how one scolds a stupid and wayward child. In the eyes of the whole world, this made the Empire look rather silly.

South Florida Cop Acquitted of Raping Woman at Gunpoint After Jury Determines She Asked For It

A South Florida cop accused of raping a woman at gunpoint while on duty was acquitted today after a jury determined she had asked for it and was merely acting out a fantasy by allowing the cop to penetrate her as she bent over the hood of his car.

The incident took place October 15, 2014 when the woman, who was 20 at the time, was riding passenger in a car with a friend who had been arrested for drunk driving.

Maiorino, 35 at the time, agreed to drive her to the police station where she could be picked up by her mother.

However, the woman said that when he pulled up in front of the station, he unzipped his pants and pulled out his penis and held her head down, ordering her to suck it.

Russia To The Rescue

Happy Birthday President Putin.Wish America had a leader like you!

If Syria has now effectively become a Russian protectorate, it follows logically that NO planes ought henceforth to be allowed to fly over Syrian air space without Assad’s consent and Russian approval. This will apply not only to Israeli planes but, by extension, to American planes, British planes and French planes. The distinction between the “good terrorists” (the so-called Syrian “rebels” backed by the West) and the “bad terrorists” and their affiliates (ISIS and their kind) will soon disappear.

The Russian aim is to support the Assad regime. As such, all the Western-backed “rebel” forces in Syria will henceforth be regarded as deadly enemies of Syria and will probably be destroyed. Putin has every right to bomb the Muslim mercenaries on the American payroll. A

Russia "Violated" Turkish Airspace Because Turkey "Moved" Its Border

One Russian plane may even indeed have slightly crossed the border while maneuvering. But the real reason why the U.S. military official and Turkey claim the above "violations" is because Turkey unilaterally "moved" the Turkish-Syrian border five miles south:

Turkey has maintained a buffer zone five miles inside Syria since June 2012, when a Syrian air defense missile shot down a Turkish fighter plane that had strayed into Syrian airspace. Under revised rules of engagement put in effect then, the Turkish air force would evaluate any target coming within five miles of the Turkish border as an enemy and act accordingly.

If Syrian rules of engagement would "move" its northern border up to the Black Sea would any plane in eastern Turkey be in violation of Syrian air space? No one would accept such nonsense and that is why no one should accept the U.S.-Turkish bullshit here. Russian planes should not respect the "new" Turkish defined border but only the legitimate one.

Nevada lawmaker wants study of medications prescribed to mass shooters

As the nation learns more about the mass-casualty shooter at a rural Oregon community college, a state lawmaker would like to learn more about drugs used to treat mental illness while one of Nevada's federal lawmakers says it is time for lawmakers to act to try to end mass shootings. . .

. . . Local Republican Assemblywoman Michele Fiore says that while a lot of people want to blame guns for mass shootings, she believes we need to take a look at psychiatric drug treatments prescribed to those struggling with mental illness.

Journalists have learned that the shooter's screen name on social media was "lithium love." Lithium is used as a psychiatric medication.

While there is no confirmation of medications that Harper-Mercer was prescribed, Fiore says with some drugs known to cause violence, suicidal and homicidal actions, we need more scientific proof that they work.

US airstrike on Afghan hospital attack on Geneva conversion: MSF

The aid organization, Doctors without Borders, has slammed the recent deadly US airstrike on its hospital in the Afghan northern city of Kunduz as “an attack on the Geneva conventions.”

“This was not just an attack on our hospital, it was an attack on the Geneva conventions. This cannot be tolerated,” Joanne Liu, the president of the group, known by its French acronym as the MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres), said in a statement on Wednesday.

Liu said that the air raid was in violation of the international law because targeting hospitals in war zones is in breach of the Geneva Convention.

The MSF chief called for an independent and impartial investigation into the incident which killed 12 MSF staff and ten patients.

Talks with US banned because of disadvantages: Leader

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says holding negotiations with the US is banned as it has countless disadvantages and no benefits.

The Leader made the remarks in a meeting with commanders and staff members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Navy as well as their families in Tehran on Wednesday.

“The problem currently facing the country is due to certain individuals who are quite thoughtless or quite credulous and don’t understand these realities,” said Ayatollah Khamenei in an apparent reference to those who favor talks with Washington.

Holding talks with Washington would be tantamount to “infiltration” and paving the way for imposing its will, the Leader noted.

'We are seeking bigger role for Russia than Americans' - Iraq defense committee chairman

Baghdad, Russia’s ally in its fight against ISIS, wants Russia to have a bigger role in the anti-terrorist campaign in Iraq than the US and may soon officially request to start airstrikes on its soil, the chairman of Iraqi parliament’s defense committee said.

"We might be forced to ask Russia to launch airstrikes in Iraq soon. I think in the upcoming few days or weeks Iraq will be forced to ask Russia to launch airstrikes and that depends on their success in Syria," said Hakim al-Zamili, Reuters reported.

"We are seeking to see Russia having a bigger role in Iraq... Yes, definitely a bigger role than the Americans," Zamili said.

The Iraqi official told RIA Novosti that the decision would depend on how efficient the Russian campaign in Syria proved to be.

Except, it seems, when it comes to one particular issue: gun violence.

On this issue, and this issue alone, Trump is — like every other Republican contender — strangely passive. . .

. . . We know what could be done to at least reduce would-be murderers’ access to deadly weapons, including universal background checks and closure of the so-called Charleston loophole, which allowed Dylan Roof to purchase a gun when he should have been denied one. We could also limit the size of magazines, or reinstate the assault weapons ban. Or create a federally financed gun buyback program, as proved successful in Australia. When it comes to curbing gun violence, The United States suffers not from a failure of imagination; we have a failure of will.

Where is Superman when we need him?

How Putin will Win in Syria

The reason Putin will succeed where the US failed in its war on ISIS, is because the Russian air-strikes are going to be accompanied by a formidable mop-up operation that will overpower the jihadi groups on the ground. This is already happening as we speak. The Russian Air Force has been pounding terrorist targets across the Idlib Governorate for the last few days as well as ISIS strongholds in the East at Raffa. Putin is going to cut through these guys like crap through a goose.

So the Russian people are proud of the way Putin is fighting the war on terror. Is there something wrong with that? Many Americans are old enough to remember a time when they were proud of their own country too, when it actually stood up for the principles it espouses in its founding documents. That was quite a while ago though, sometime back in the “pre-Gitmo” era”.

NZ diplomat Robert Kaiwai had a hand in choosing $6.2m Hawaii mansion

Note: Maybe Mike can go & visit him & get him to help feed the homeless & get a spare bed for someone.

A New Zealand diplomat was involved in the selection of a $6.2 million mansion bought with taxpayer money for him and his wife to live in.

However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Mfat) has come out strongly against criticism that diplomat Robert Kaiwai picked the luxurious property, saying the decision was made by officials in Wellington.

"Mr Kaiwai was involved in identifying properties that corresponded with the terms of reference. A short list of five properties was made," an Mfat spokesman said.

"The short listed properties were then viewed by a three person Mfat team. Mr Kawai was neither part of that team nor present when they visited the properties."

The team made a recommendation to the Ministry, the spokesman said, which was reviewed by an independent advisory panel. The purchasing decision was made at a senior level in the Ministry.

Kiwi's Libor rigging trial begins

A New Zealand resident known as "Big Nose" was one of six brokers that helped convicted trader Tom Hayes manipulate bank rates by acting as middlemen between him and other traders, a London court has heard.

The six are former brokers of ICAP, RP Martin and Tullett Prebon and their trial began in the Southwark Crown Court in London overnight.

The group - Wellington resident Darrell Read, Colin Goodman, Danny Wilkinson, Terry Farr, James Gilmour and Noel Cryan - are defending charges of conspiracy to defraud.

They are accused of helping Hayes, a former Tokyo-based UBS and Citigroup trader, profit from his yen derivatives trades.

"They were rewarded in various ways to corrupt a process that should not have been corrupted," said prosecutor Mukul Chawla, according to the Financial Times.
