Kunstler, not a fan of the Donald.

Trump’s notion that he can push around world leaders such as Vladimir Putin by treating them as though they were president of the Cement Workers’ Union ought to give thoughtful people the vapors. It doesn’t seem to occur to Trump that other countries could easily get pugnacious towards us. He would have us in a world war before the inaugural parade was over.

Bernie Sanders versus Obama & the Clintons: The Big Difference

I state here why I have come to support Bernie Sanders for President: Whereas Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — the modern Democratic Establishment — have been so conservative they might as well have called themselves “conservative” (and they didn’t say it because they needed to be able to win Democratic Party primaries), Sanders’s record shows that he isn’t like that at all; he’s an authentic democrat, and always has been, even when he didn’t call himself one (but only a “Progressive,” and a “socialist — like in Scandinavia”). I don’t care what a politician calls himself or herself, only what the person actually is, as the person has proven to be by the actual record as a public official.

Banksterism 101: Banks Get Credit for Helping the Poor — By Financing Their Evictions?

In 1977, Congress wanted to make sure commercial banks fulfilled their commitment to serve all communities in America, regardless of income level. “A public charter conveys numerous economic benefits,” said William Proxmire, then head of the Senate Banking Committee, “and in return it is legitimate for public policy and regulatory practice to require some public purpose.” Under the Community Reinvestment Act, banks are periodically examined for how well they provide lending and investment to low- and moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods where they take deposits. Since its enactment, 97 percent of all banks examined have received a “Satisfactory” or “Outstanding” grade, according to the Congressional Research Service.

Power of Monsanto: Shareholder Meeting Had More Cops, Arrests Than Votes for GMO Labels

First, it was readily apparent that the company has no intention of taking steps to label genetically modified (GM) foods, and any such proposals by shareholders do not stand a chance of being voted through.

Second, Monsanto's power doesn't end outside of their boardroom… at least two dozen on-duty police were on hand to "control" the 30-40 peaceful protestors in favor of mandatory GM labeling. As Daily RFT reported:1

"…two things were clear: mandatory GMO labels aren't happening any time soon, and the police have Monsanto's back."

Obama has power to circumvent Congress on Iran nuclear deal

Even strong bipartisan disapproval by Congress of the Iranian nuclear deal won’t stop President Obama from implementing the agreement, so the vote next month is shaping up as a warning to Europe against resuming business with Tehran before the next U.S. president is elected.

On his Senate website though, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Sunday became the highest-profile Democrat to endorse the deal and added that he would attempt to sway other members of his party.

Business Insider: Hillary Clinton’s ‘Best Argument’ in Email Scandal ‘Destroyed’

A Reuters story on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, previously reported on by Breitbart, quoted national security experts who said that information shared on her private server was “born classified” even if it was not marked so.

Business Insider, hardly a right-wing publication, takes the Reuters story a step farther and posts a headline saying that this revelation “destroyed” what would have been her “best argument” against criminal investigators.

Hillary Clinton campaign scrambling to control damage from ongoing email server investigations

Clinton’s campaign has shifted into high gear on new messaging and outreach efforts following a rocky press conference last week and new accusations from a judge that she did violate government policy by using a private server. Frustrated allies admit that earlier attempts to stonewall what they see as a partisan witch hunt didn’t work.

“The campaign made several really significant mistakes in the way they handled it and the tone they took," former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a longtime Clinton ally, said.

Attacking Jeremy Corbyn will only increase his popularity... especially since he wisely refrains from responding in kind, says PETER MCKAY

A Jeremy Corbyn premiership will see our national debt soaring to £3 trillion, our nuclear submarines sold to Vladimir Putin, Britain kicked out of Nato and the red flag flying from No 10 during ‘1,000 days that destroy Britain’.

This ‘imagining’ by one newspaper feature writer yesterday is merely an exaggerated version of what Corbyn’s leadership rivals, and their supporters, are now claiming.

But isn’t the anti-Corbyn uproar now in danger of increasing his popularity, especially since he wisely refrains from responding in kind?

Donald Trump Puts 'Hedge Fund Guys' on Notice

"They're paying nothing. And it's ridiculous," Trump said of those who make a living running hedge funds. "I want to save the middle class. You know, the middle class—the hedge fund guys didn't build this country. These are guys that shift paper around and they get lucky. And, by the way, when the market collapses, like it is now, the market is going down, they're losing a fortune."

CDC vaccine whistleblower: the silence that kills

By Jon Rappoport

It’s now been a year since William Thompson, long-time CDC researcher, publicly admitted he concealed evidence that indicted the MMR vaccine for its connection to autism...

During this past year, mainstream reporters and defenders of the realm have taken two approaches: silence; and vague claims that Thompson’s statements are false.

Both of these approaches are slimy and disingenuous, because the man we want to hear from is Thompson himself. And we have not...

Trump and criminal aliens: New poll reveals voters agree with The Donald

While the news media, political pundits and Democrats -- who feel compelled to offer advice to the GOP about how to win elections -- denigrate and criticize the man known as The Donald, the more he's bashed and denigrated, the higher go his poll numbers.

As far as his ideas on immigration reform, Trump's rhetoric and his plans appear to coincide with the opinions of a majority of Republicans and so-called Independents despite Republicans and Democrats in the news media who claim the majority of Americans want Obama-style amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens already living in the United States. And as far as voters are concerned – and not just Republicans - Donald Trump has a winning formula for fighting immigration-related felonies.

Children given lifelong ban on talking about fracking

Two young children in Pennsylvania were banned from talking about fracking for the rest of their lives under a gag order imposed under a settlement reached by their parents with a leading oil and gas company.

The sweeping gag order was imposed under a $750,000 settlement between the Hallowich family and Range Resources Corp, a leading oil and gas driller. It provoked outrage on Monday among environmental campaigners and free speech advocates.

The settlement, reached in 2011 but unsealed only last week, barred the Hallowichs' son and daughter, who were then aged 10 and seven, from ever discussing fracking or the Marcellus Shale, a leading producer in America's shale gas boom.

While the conclusions of this study may not be shocking to anyone who has been paying attention. The implications of the US falling into a dystopian state are far reaching.

A Visit To The Memorial to the "Up To Six Million" Murdered Jews of Europe - Berlin, Germany

This "highly visible" holocaust memorial is appropriately sandwiched between the infamous Reichstag Building, The U.S. Embassy, and the Homosexual Memorial Museum. The placard in the video states, in part, "In August 1988, the journalist Lea Rosh and the historian Eberhard Jackel made a public proposal for establishing a "highly visible memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe" in Berlin. On 25 June 1999, after long and drawn out debates, the German Bundestag finally passed a resolution to build a "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe" based on the design by the New York architect, Peter Eisenman. On 10 May 2005 the Holocaust Memorial - comprising 2,711 concrete stelar and a subterraneon Information Centre - was officially opened to the public. The exhibition provides information about the Holocaust and the "authentic sites of remembrance". Moreover, it honours the up to six million Jewish victims from throughout Europe."

George Soros’s Fakery

George Soros pretends to be a progressive, but he invests in and finances nazis. That’s not “Nazis” as in National Socialist Party of Germany, which was outlawed after WW II, and whose racist obsession was against Jews. Instead, it’s “nazis” as in any racist fascist ideology (any ideology of racist fascism, instead of a political Party), in any country, against any ethnic group. But George Soros happens to support only nazis (racist fascists) whose passionate hatred is specifically against Russians. His entire biography in public life has actually been that.

BDS MUST ADMIT ITS MISTAKES

For the past ten years the International BDS Movement has been the most vocal and respected Movement against the occupation of Palestine.

It has grown rapidly, especially in the Jewish sectors on US campuses. Its fight for Justice has caused alarm in zionist circles and has been the target of anti-Semitic charges by Israel itself, all of which are unjustifed and untrue.

Attempts by the Israeli government to blackmail the BDS leadership have failed and will continue to do so. Instead, victory after victory have been celebrated throughout the world as BDS wins battle after battle.

Last week the organisors of a Reggae Festival in Valencia cancelled an invitation to a Jewish American because of his refusal to publicly support the creation of a Palestinian State. The decision was made after the Valencia BDS Movement put pressure on the group. It was a decision that was applauded worldwide including on this Blog itself.

Blairite Labour Plotting Coup to Axe Corbyn

The British Labour Party under the sway of former Prime Minister Tony Blair is plotting to derail Jeremy Corbyn’s bid to win the forthcoming leadership contest.

Such is the fear of Corbyn reinventing the party as a genuine socialist alternative, that Blair and his clique of “party grandees” are aiming to overturn the ballot underway among the rank-and-file members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just as Trump is severely rattling the establishment in the US, looks like Corbyn has, literally, terrified the UK establishment. Mandy, a Rothschild lackey, has even been 'called out' to discredit Corbyn.

Jeremy Corbyn Better Run Britain Because 7 out of 10 British Jews Think he Shouldn't

A new Jewish Chronicle poll just ahead of Sabbath reveals that “almost seven in 10 British Jews are concerned about the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn becoming leader of the Labour Party.”

The polling, conducted earlier this week, reveals the depth of anxiety within the Jewish community about Labour’s future direction.

Asked how they feel about Mr Corbyn becoming leader, 67 per cent say they are “concerned”, with only 13 per cent responding “unconcerned”.

The Meaning Of Corbyn

Within the context of the old liberal democratic phantasy, the political was thought to be an extension of the people’s will and whims. But this has changed radically within the present post political conditions. In the last four decades, we westerners have been reduced to mere consumers. Our Politicians have evolved accordingly. Politics has morphed into the system that facilitates consumption on behalf of big conglomerates.

Corbyn the symbol has come to embody the general fatigue with this post-political condition -frustration with austerity, endless immoral Zio-con wars, the loss of manufacturing, The Lobby, divisive identity nonsense and cultural Marxism as opposed to Marxism. Corbyn serves as a reminder of the revolution that never happened. He has reminded us that we are one after all.

The geniuses in the Washington, D.C.- centered GOP establishment have a new plan to take down 2016 Republican frontrunner Donald Trump: Infiltrate his inner circle posing as an ally, then use their fabricated support of him to secretly plot to take him down.

But now they all admit: They were wrong, Trump is real, and he has a serious shot at winning this thing.

Obama condemns: Killing and harvesting body parts of humans is ‘craziness’

The timing is unbelievably uncanny.

During an appearance Monday at the Young African Leaders Initiative Presidential Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., President Obama was asked by an attendee about the practice of killing human beings in Africa with albinism and harvesting their body parts for "ritual purposes."

The devastating irony of the president's answer, coming at a time when the United States' attention is focused on the macabre reality of what is happening in Planned Parenthood's clinics, is impossible to miss.

The question was asked just one day before the release of the fifth - and most gruesome yet - video in a series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies.

David Miliband dragged into Hillary Clinton email scandal after it emerges confidential British intelligence was sent to presidential hopeful's private account

David Miliband was dragged into the Hillary Clinton email scandal today, after it emerged that confidential information which he had provided ended up in her unsecured private account.

Mrs Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, has come under fire over revelations she had a secret email account as Secretary of State.

She has repeatedly insisted that she did not send or receive any classified information on her private account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that the office of Secretary of State involves large amounts of classified data, if Hillary insists she did not use her private server to handle that classified data and never used a US Government server ... then what server WAS she using for classified information?!?

That only one of the huge holes in Hillary's lies!

Hillary Clinton jolted by accidental scandal

Hillary Clinton finds herself embroiled in a campaign-threatening scandal that almost didn't happen.

The Democratic presidential front-runner is under siege, fending off questions almost daily about her home-brew server and whether she trafficked in classified, sensitive government information on the private email account she used during her tenure as secretary of state. But for a congressional investigation into the tragic Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya — an inquiry that didn't begin until nearly two years later — Clinton's secret server might still be a secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By the time the conventions happen in the summer of next year, Hillary Clinton may well be facing a humiliating abdication from the political scene.
