Who Towers Behind Trump?

An inquiry into the background of flamboyant American entrepreneur Donald J. Trump provides some surprising insights into Trump’s path to power and influence, for the fact is that Trump’s rise to stardom came as a direct consequence of his having functioned as hardly more than a colorful front man for some very wealthy behind-the-scenes sponsors.

Chicken Little Al Gore Renews Climate Change Lie

Air so hot it melts airport runways. Floodwaters rise up to crumble roads and bridges. Methane gas billows up from the earth blowing terrifying holes in Siberia.

These scenarios sound straight out of the Book of Revelation or the movie “2012?. But, they are not. These scenarios were part of a three hour presentation by Al Gore in Miami as he works diligently to amass an army of organizers to spread his “global warming/climate change” propaganda.

According to the former US Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner, who has trained more than 5,000 people to combat this ruse in the last 18 months, our modern world is literally collapsing around us making it imperative for everyone to change their ways. Gore’s Academy award winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” gets an update at each session with the “latest news footage and startling videos” showing the effects of the fossil fuel industry that threatens the earth’s survival.

Obama on Gun Control After Oregon: “We Collectively Are Answerable to Those Families”

President Obama spoke in response to the Oregon shooting, vowing once again to spend the last 15 months of his final term to ensure more gun control legislation is passed.

“This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America. We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.”

“We have seat belt laws because we know it saves lives,” he said.

Obama continued:

“The notion that gun violence is somehow different… that our freedom and our Constitution prohibits any modest regulation… of how we use a deadly weapon… when there are law abiding gun owners all across the country who could hunt and protect their families and do everything they do under such regulations doesn’t make sense.”

He also referenced how gun control in the UK and Australia was able to be passed in response to just one single mass shooting.

Roseberg Oregon Residents Say School Shooting Shows Why Citizens Must Be Armed

Once again the Gungrabbers misread the psychology of the Americans.

Residents in Roseberg, Oregon, are rallying around the Second Amendment in the wake of the heinous attack on Umpqua Community College (UCC), suggesting the attack itself is proof of why citizens need to be armed for self-defense.

According to the Associated Press, Roseberg is a mill town surrounded by hunting and fishing opportunities, and one where many residents say they do not leave home without a handgun for self-defense. They do not carry because crime is high, but because crime is low and they want to keep it that way.

Consequently, residents like J.C. Smith believe the attack at UCC was made possible by the fact that the school denied the exercise of Second Amendment rights to its students. Smith suggests that “barring people from carrying guns on campus made it particularly vulnerable to a ‘lone wolf’ attack” like the one witnessed Thursday.

Jeb Bush: USA must show strength to stop Putin

Jeb Bush is convinced that Washington should show strength on Russia and Russian President Putin to stop Moscow's participation in the Syrian conflict. "This is outrageous. He's attacking the Syrian free army. The remnants of an army that we -- got the support during the time when it actually had strength and now instead of us creating a no fly zone, he's in fact saying there's a no fly zone including American Air Force. So we're in a position right now where if we don't show strength, this will create problems not just in Syria, but the rest of the world," Jeb Bush said on MSNBC. According to Bush, Russia is thus trying to spread its military influence in other parts of the world. To stop Russia from doing that, Jeb Bush offered to tighten sanctions against Russia and entrust the struggle against ISIS to USA's partners in Europe.

FLASHBACK: General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years

Lest we forget!

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"

Revealed: Panorama’s plans to smear survivors of child abuse

BBC1’s Panorama is planning to attack survivors of child sex abuse and others who are uncovering evidence of a ‘Westminster paedophile network’.

Many journalists at the broadcaster fear that the programme will prompt a backlash because two established cases of VIP paedophiles were among the BBC’s biggest stars – Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall.

They point to how the broadcaster badly let down abuse survivors previously, including one who featured in a Panorama on the pulling of an expose of Savile by BBC2’s Newsnight and another at the centre of the latter programme’s implicit and mistaken identification of Lord McAlpine, former Conservative treasurer, as a paedophile.

Panorama plans to smear abuse survivors, criticise Exaro and other media over their reports on VIP paedophiles, and undermine MPs who campaigned on the issue.

How Steve Jobs Fleeced Carly Fiorina

Ms. Fiorina’s trainwreck stint at HP has been well documented. But I want to address one tiny but telling aspect of her misbegotten reign: an episode that involved her good friend Steve Jobs. It is the story of the HP iPod.

The iPod, of course, was Apple’s creation, a groundbreaking digital music player that let you have “a music library in your pocket.” Introduced in 2001, it gained steam over the next few years and by the end of 2003, the device was a genuine phenomenon. So it was news that in January 2004, Steve Jobs and Carly Fiorina made a deal where HP could slap its name on Apple’s wildly successful product. Nonetheless, HP still managed to botch things. It could not have been otherwise, really, because Steve Jobs totally outsmarted the woman who now claims she can run the United States of America.

MEET THE MONSANTO OPERATIVES PRETENDING TO BE JOURNALISTS FOR DISCOVER, SLATE, WASHINGTON POST, AND NEW YORK TIMES

One of the truly fascinating revelations in the recent Freedom of Information Act emails acquired from university professors who whore themselves out to Monsanto is the fact that mainstream media journalists are also Monsanto prostitutes.

These Monsanto operatives pretending to be journalists write for The Washington Post, New York Times, Discover, Slate, Nature and various "science" websites. Many of themopenly admit to being paid by Monsanto and gladly accepting the money. Then they turn around and write stories attacking clean food activists or hawking whatever GMO propaganda Monsanto is pushing that day.

It's all coordinated by sleazebag Monsanto front men like Jon Entine, a man seething with so much evil that he tried to strangle his wife in front of their own daughter, and installed surveillance equipment to spy on her activities in their own home, according to court documents published here on Natural News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate purchasing of whorespondents is nothing new; it is simply that Monsanto has transformed these purchases into one of the most evil, despicable lying bully pulpits ever.

When it comes to your health, please think for yourself; if you allow people like these to think for you, you are taking extreme chances you really need to think about.

Dead Man Walking: Richard Glossip vs. The Death Penalty

Just moments before death row inmate Richard Glossip was scheduled to be killed on Wednesday, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin issued a stay of execution citing questions over the execution protocol and the chemicals used for lethal injection. Richard Glossip’s case has attracted international attention. On Wednesday, Pope Francis urged Governor Fallin to commute the death sentence over questions of Glossip’s guilt. We speak to Sister Helen Prejean, one of the world’s most well-known anti-death-penalty activists. She is the author of the best-selling book, "Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty."

At Structural Engineering Summit Two-Dozen Structural Engineers Sign AE911 Truth's Petition Many Still Don’t Know about WTC 7

During the eight hours of the trade show, Richard Gage, AIA, and Las Vegas structural engineer Steven Dusterwald spoke with more than 100 structural engineers from around the country and showed them the video footage of WTC 7’s symmetrical, free-fall destruction. Most had never seen it before and many had never even heard of WTC 7.

While some of the engineers needed more time to review the evidence — and we applaud them for taking the time to study it — roughly half of them quickly recognized WTC 7’s destruction as a controlled demolition and 24 took the courageous step of signing our petition. One cannot help but conclude that the single biggest obstacle to mobilizing the engineering profession to support a new investigation is the basic lack of awareness of WTC 7.

Antidepressant Paxil Is Unsafe for Teenagers, New Analysis Says

Fourteen years ago, a leading drug maker published a study showing that the antidepressant Paxil was safe and effective for teenagers. On Wednesday, a major medical journal posted a new analysis of the same data concluding that the opposite is true.

That study — featured prominently by the journal BMJ — is a clear break from scientific custom and reflects a new era in scientific publishing, some experts said, opening the way for journals to post multiple interpretations of the same experiment. It comes at a time of self-examination across science — retractions are at an all-time high; recent cases of fraud have shaken fields as diverse as anesthesia and political science; and earlier this month researchers reported that less than half of a sample of psychology papers held up.

SHERIFF THAT LAUGHED ABOUT FLASH BANGING A TODDLER, WAS JUST SHOT BY MURDEROUS ROGUE COP

Sheriff Joey Terrell and one of his deputies were shot and injured while responding to a domestic violence complaint that involved another officer. Terrell has been the subject of a number of reports at The Free Thought Project, because he is the law enforcement official who authorized the “no knock raid” that maimed and nearly killed a young toddler. Terrell then later broke a promise to pay the family’s medical bills when he left them to take care of it on their own.

This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.

Taliban Claims It Shot Down U.S. Transport Plane In Afghanistan

The Taliban claimed early Friday that its jihadis were responsible for shooting down an American C-130 Hercules airplane, according to reports. Initial reports stated that at least 10 people were killed when the US plane crashed at an airport in Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

“Our mujahideen have shot down a four-engine US aircraft in Jalalabad,” Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter. “Based on credible information 15 invading forces and a number of puppet troops were killed,” he added.

The Mind of Mr. Putin

Putin concept of “state sovereignty” is this: “We are all different, and we should respect that. No one has to conform to a single development model that someone has once and for all recognized as the right one.”

The Soviet Union tried that way, said Putin, and failed. Now the Americans are trying the same thing, and they will reach the same end.

Hillary Clinton’s Email About Gay Parents Should Seriously Trouble Her LGBT Supporters

In late 2010, the State Department made an exceedingly innocuous change to U.S. passport application forms. Instead of listing “Mother” and “Father,” these forms would now list “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.” The change, the department declared, was “in recognition of different types of families”—namely, families with same-sex parents.

US Complains As Russia Bombs its Terrorists

Russia is Bombing Al Qaeda

This leads back to the most recent New York Times article. Russia is not arbitrarily bombing “moderates” backed by the US in Syria to stave off allegedly “legitimate” opposition to the government in Damascus – Russia is bombing terrorists who are either operating under the banner of Al Qaeda but are portrayed as otherwise by the US, or will inevitably end up turning their fighters and weapons over to Al Qaeda. Russia is bombing Al Qaeda.

Some might consider doubling down on a policy of backing terrorists that will inevitably be revealed to the world, and a policy that has thus far failed to topple the Syrian government which is now being bolstered by Russian, Iranian, and possibly Chinese forces, is a policy that is ultimately doomed.

UPDATED - Some Zionists Are Using Exaggerated Hysteria to Destroy Free Speech on UC Campus

There is something very disturbing going on with the University of California school systems that is more serious than over-inflated allegations of anti-Semitism and hate crimes on college campuses in California, and that is special interest bully pulpit attempt by some Jews to get regulations passed that outlaw any kind of speech that that basically rejects the Zionist project in Israel as a Jewish State. This is a very serious attack on free speech in one of America’s college systems. Trying to broaden the definition of anti-Semitism as “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination and denying Israel the right to exist” is clearly political blackmail. For several years now various Jewish right-wing organizations and individuals have been waging a political battle against criticism of Israel and Zionism and now it is focusing more and more on American campuses.

Cop Threatens Innocent Pregnant Woman and Her Fiancé with a Shotgun for Filming Them

Memphis, TN – A video uploaded to Facebook yesterday afternoon, is causing serious backlash against the tactics being used by police to serve an arrest warrant.

As the video begins, several heavily armed men can be seen arresting a man who appeared to be fully compliant with their instructions. Within seconds this “typical” arrest would become yet another example of the incredulous behavior we so often see in the Police State.

As the camera pans upward, one of the men noticeably has his weapon trained on the man filming the incident. The man filming immediately asks them why they have a gun pointed in his direction, to which one paranoid cop replies, “So we don’t get shot.”

Fox News Legal Analyst Predicts FBI Will Recommend Hillary Clinton be Indicted for National Security Crimes

According to the Associated Press:

“The Petraeus emails, first discovered by the Defense Department and then passed to the State Department’s inspector general challenge…Clinton’s claim that she has handed over the entirety of her work emails from the account.”

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Judge Andrew Napolitano predicted Clinton’s defense, saying:

“She’s going to argue–because she stated…that she’s not a technical person, and she didn’t pay attention to emails, and she doesn’t understand exactly how the entire email system works–I’m afraid that’s not an argument that the judge wants to hear, and will essentially fall on deaf ears.”

Speaking to potential legal action, Napolitano added:

“I think that the FBI will recommend to the Justice Department that she be indicted.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I disagree. I predict the FBI will say they have found no evidence justifying criminal prosecution.
