Panetta’s Call to ‘Move On’ From Hillary Emails to ‘Real Issues’

I just want to add a couple of points to Ian’s excellent post from Monday on former defense secretary Leon Panetta’s call for Americans — including “the candidates — to “move on” from his pal Hillary Clinton’s email debacle and instead focus on the “real issues.”

As Ian observes, a presidential candidate’s compromising of national security is a “real issue.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Panetta wants us to move on from the email issue, which at the very least was a display of reckless disregard for the security of state secrets, and at worst a replay of the Clinton 1996 China-gate scandal in which US secrets were delivered to a foreign government in exchange for "donations", and focus on the real issues ... like which restrooms we should be using!

Clinton is playing liar’s poker with America’s future

The suckers in the upcoming election are tens of millions of people who don’t understand that they are playing the biggest hand that has been dealt in the past 100 years. Ordinary citizens that believe they never gamble, but will vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, are making the biggest gamble of their lives. Unfortunately it is like being dealt a 2 and 9 of clubs and wanting to double down.

Iraq allows Russia access to their airspace

Iraq has given the Russian Air Force full access to their airspace in order to combat the terrorist forces like the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) that are occupying eastern Syria.

This move by the Iraqi government came just hours after the Russian Air Force landed their first fighter jets at the Hamedan Airbase in Iran.

Global central banks dump USA debt at record pace…

In the first six months of this year, foreign central banks sold a net $192 billion of U.S. Treasury bonds, more than double the pace in the same period last year, when they sold $83 billion.

Open Letter Of Aleppo Doctors Is Easily Torn Apart – Bottom Of The Barrel Propaganda

By Brandon Turbeville

In 2016, we have become accustomed to relatively childish and easily deconstructed propaganda narratives that are circulated by the U.S. State Department and its mainstream media mouthpieces in order to discredit the Syrian government and drum up support for a NATO-led war on the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

From scares related to chemical weapons (later demonstrated to be the work of NATO’s terrorists), unproven and largely discredited claims that Assad is “killing his own people” or even that Assad is “supporting ISIS” has become the order of the day in American media. Recently, however, the State Department, office of origin of the “Ghaddafi is handing out Viagra to rapists” propaganda line, has issued yet another pathetic propaganda ploy against the Syrian government – an alleged letter written by alleged doctors alleging that the Syrian military is encircling Aleppo in order to allegedly kill civilians.

US DEFENSE FIRMS PROFIT BY SAUDI ARABIA’S SLAUGHTER OF YEMEN

It is not secret that Saudi Arabia has been carrying out ghastly war crimes on the people of Yemen using US weapons and support. Despite the US’ endless (and largely hypocritical) complaining about civilian deaths in Syria, the Saudis have deployed unprecedented violence on civilians in Yemen with no audible opposition from the US. One of the US weapons making an appearance in Yemen are widely banned cluster bombs, specifically the CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon from Textron Systems of Wilmington, Massachusetts. The bombs are not only lethal upon initial use but often the parts of the bomb do not explode as planned and spontaneously detonate later or by accident when scavengers stumble upon them while looking for scrap metal.

DALLAS PD ASKS ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR PERMISSION TO WITHHOLD 'EMBARRASSING' DOCUMENTS ABOUT ITS BOMB ROBOT

The unprecedented deployment of a bomb-defusing robot by Dallas police to kill an armed suspect raised several questions. While these robots have sometimes acted as part of a negotiation team in the past, no police department had previously rigged one up with an explosive device to take a suspect out. One question that remains unanswered is whether this use of the Dallas PD's robot violated its own policies. Gawker's Andy Cush filed a public records request for PD policies on using robots to kill and discovered Dallas law enforcement was basically making things up as it went along.

Congress: AWOL And Out Of Control

Taken as whole, with exceptions, the American people have the strangest attitude toward the Congress. Our national legislature spends nearly a quarter of our income and affects us one way or another every day of the year. Yet too many people withdraw in disgust instead of making Congress accountable to them. Warren Buffett once said, “It’s time for 535 of America’s citizens to remember what they owe to the 318 million who employ them.”

18 U.S. Code § 793 - Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information

Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is where FBI Director James Comey lied to the American people when he said he would not recommend charges because he did not find evidence that Hillary intended to do wrong. Comey dismissed Hillary's actions as reckless, careless, and negligent, but as 18 U.S. Code § 793 states, intent to do harm is not required, and exposure of national secrets through negligence is a crime, punishable by ten years in prison.

From Whitewater to Benghazi: A Clinton-Scandal Primer

Newly released emails have shown again the troublesome interconnections between the Clinton Foundation and the Hillary Clinton-led State Department.

The conservative accountability group Judicial Watch released Tuesday night a tranche of nearly 300 emails it obtained through a lawsuit, and they paint a picture of some of the conflicts of interest created by a situation in which Hillary Clinton ran U.S. foreign policy as her husband’s foundation acted around the globe. Many of the emails are redacted, and some are almost comically boring—“No new voice messages,” one reads in full—but others are not.

THIS List Of Federal Laws That Hillary Clinton Has Directly Violated Is Reprehensible

“So many laws and so little time”, may in fact be what Hillary’s many lawyers are thinking, as the FBI continues it’s investigation and probes further into how may federal and perhaps state laws this woman has actually broken.

“The case is getting so strong now that it’s going to be really hard to have an intellectually honest decision and walk away from it,” claimed a former federal prosecutor being interviewed on Hannity. He continued “she has also proven that she is completely grossly negligent in the handling of sensitive information, and we want someone like this for President of the United States?”

Former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani now estimates that Clinton has run afoul of 13-15 federal statutes. The list potentially includes the improper transmission and handling of confidential information, mail fraud statutes, wire fraud statutes, and obstruction of justice.

Here’s a quick list of the most serious charges that Clinton faces;

Obamacare Sticker Shock: Average 2017 Premium Surges 24%

The reference, of course, was to the state by state surge in proposed 2017 Obamacare premiums, contrasted with what the government contends is a modest 1.0% inflation rate.

Now, courtesy of a new study by independent analyst Charles Gaba - who has crunched the numbers for insurers participating in the ACA exchanges in all 50 states - we can also calculate what the average Obamacare premium increase across the entire US will be: using proposed and approved rate increase requests, the average Obamacare premium is expected to surge by a whopping 24% this year.

EXCLUSIVE – Benghazi Victims’ Lawyer: Hillary Clinton Is ‘Totally Exposed’

Part of the lawsuit charges that Clinton defamed the victims’ families and was responsible for “intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress” by “directly brand[ing] Plaintiffs as liars.” She did so, the complaint alleges, when she contradicted the families over allegations that the Benghazi attacks were the result of a terrorist onslaught and not a protest over an anti-Muhammad video.

Regarding that section of the lawsuit, Klayman stated on the radio Sunday:

She has no immunity. Some people have said without looking at the law that there is immunity or there is not. When you violate criminal statutes, Aaron, and as you know, which she did. And Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York, former deputy attorney-general, and myself and others have pointed out the statutes that she violated. Even the FBI director admitted, although he didn’t have the guts to recommend prosecution, you lose your immunity. There are Supreme Court cases on that.

The Mysteriously Obtuse Case Of The Missing Fukushima Fuel

By Richard Wilcox, PhD

“Nature knows no indecencies; man invents them.” – Mark Twain

As the world forever hurtles toward Armageddon, the Fukushima nuclear disaster has largely faded from the front pages. But the issue is far from resolved. Radiation from nuclear accidents is not easily dispelled with estimates of clean-up time at Fukushima ranging from 40 to 500 years, and nearly six years have already passed. Even safely stored nuclear material is dangerous for 100,000 years.

The Mainstream Media Has Become A Criminal Accomplice To Naked Campaign Fraud And Election Theft

What the American people are now witnessing during this presidential election cycle has always gone on. The MSM (Mainstream Media) has always skewed election coverage to favor one candidate over another. It’s called M A N U F A C T U R E D C O N S E N T. Whoever the elites wants will ALWAYS win the day.

However, what the 2016 presidential election cycle has brought the USA is a gross exaggeration of this quadrennial scandalous phenomenon. Let’s face it: Whoever controls the media controls the message. Whoever controls the message controls the outcomes. Therefore, whoever the ruling elites want to win this election will receive favorable coverage; whoever they oppose will be dumped on.

That gambit is known as the “pay-to-play” scandal. Give the foundation a big fat donation, and Hillary will open whatever door you need opened.

We are living in boom times for the private prison industry. The Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the nation’s largest owner of private prisons, has seen its revenue climb by more than 500 percent in the last two decades. And CCA wants to get much, much bigger: Last year, the company made an offer to 48 governors to buy and operate their state-funded prisons. But what made CCA’s pitch to those governors so audacious and shocking was that it included a so-called occupancy requirement, a clause demanding the state keep those newly privatized prisons at least 90 percent full at all times, regardless of whether crime was rising or falling.

We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates, with some 30 percent of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale,” Rothschild writes in the company's semi-annual financial report.

California Assembly Passes Bill to Curb “Policing for Profit” via Asset Forfeiture; Close Federal Loophole

Today, August 15, 2016 the California Assembly voted 66-8 to pass a bill that not only bolsters restrictions on state officials from seizing property without due process, but throws a wrench into federal efforts to do the same.

Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) introduced Senate Bill 443 (SB443) last year. The legislation sets additional restrictions on the state to prevent abuses from civil asset forfeiture, a controversial practice that observers such as the Institute for Justice (IJ) have called “legal plunder.”...

Hillary: what drugs is she on?

Meanwhile, if Hillary has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, there are drugs that are routinely prescribed, and their adverse effects should be noted.

For example, the drug L-dopa. Here, from WebMD, are several side effects that would raise serious questions: aggressive behavior; altered mental status; blood pressure drop upon standing; depression; mood changes; anxiety; confusion.

Another popular Parkinson’s drug is Sinemet. RX List mentions these adverse effects: lightheadedness; mental/mood changes; agitation; hallucinations; depression; thoughts of suicide.

With either drug, resulting depression could be treated with an SSRI antidepressant, such as Paxil. That drug also has adverse effects.

Among the side effects of Paxil listed by Drugs.com: weakness; dizziness; blurred vision; visual disturbance; lack of concentration; anxiety; confusion.

California about to pass the 'Medical Pedophiles Protection Act' to criminalize journalists for posting videos that document medical abuse of children, seniors and surgical patients

Doctors who rape patients under anesthesia can now count on the corrupt state government of California to protect their "privacy" from investigative journalists who film them to expose their abusive assaults. Abortion chop shop organ harvesting factories -- also known as "Planned Parenthood" -- would also be safe from the scrutiny that comes from the investigative journalism that recently caught their principals on tape, admitting to harvesting intact human heads (and other body parts) from partially born, living, breathing babies who are then killed on sight so that their valuable organs can be collected and sold off for "medical science."

CBD chaos: DEA's refusal to reschedule marijuana molecules just the latest protectionist racket from the criminal corporate cartels running the corrupt U.S. government

Obama's war on humanity just took another great leap toward totalitarian despotism with last week's DEA decision to deny petitions seeking to reclassify medical marijuana as a non-schedule I drug. This decision means that any person possessing natural CBD (cannabidiol) compounds derived from hemp leaves, including CBG, CBN, CBD-A and other similar molecules from cannabis, can technically be charged with felony possession of a schedule I drug.

The CBD industry vehemently disagrees with the DEA's current stance on both CBD and medical marijuana, and so far the DEA's efforts have focused on CBD manufacturers, not end users who possess the natural substance. CBD is also reportedly exempt from the DEA's criminalization scope if it is derived from hemp seeds or mature stalks rather than leaves. This is a key point to understand, as you'll see here.

While police and government surveillance of protests, including monitoring of cellphone use, is well-documented, efforts to block signals at protests remains an oft-repeated, but never proven, rumor.

It may be impossible to definitively prove that authorities are using cellphone “jamming” technology, but journalists working with both mainstream and independent media reported unusual difficulties accessing the internet during recent protests at the gates of the Democratic National Convention, consistent with the effects this very real technology could have.

Betraying Brexit: the revolt of the elites against the people

Why is everyone so chilled out about the threats to Brexit? Why isn’t there more public fury over the plotting of lords and academics and experts to stymie Brexit and thwart the will of 17.4m people? In all the years I’ve been writing about politics, I cannot remember a time when democracy has been treated with as much disgust, with as much naked, Victorian-era elitism, as it is being today. And yet we’re all bizarrely mellow. We’re going about our business as if everything is normal, as if the elites aren’t right now, this very minute, in revolt against the people. We need to wake up.

There is a solution to this problem of an uppity ruling class. Just ask Charles I.

GOP lays out case for charging Clinton with perjury

A pair of leading House Republicans on Monday laid out detailed instructions for the Justice Department to file perjury charges against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

More than a month after first requesting the department open a criminal probe into Clinton for alleged misstatements she made under oath, the GOP heads of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees told a federal prosecutor specifically where they believed Clinton had lied to Congress about her email setup at the Department of State.

In at least four separate occasions during a marathon appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, the lawmakers alleged, the former secretary's claims were at odds with what the FBI has now discovered to be the truth about her private server.

Obama and Hillary DID Found ISIS - This 2012 US Government Memo Proves It

The latest “OMG, Trump said that!” moment is The Donald’s claim that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are, correspondingly, the “founder” and “cofounder” of ISIS. True to form, the media reaction has been to shriek in outrage that he would cast aspersions on such august personages.

As of this writing, not one American media source of which this writer is aware has brought up in relation to Trump’s claims the August 2012 report (declassified and released in 2015 under a FOIA request from Judicial Watch) from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) stating that “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.” The “supporting powers” are identified as “western countries” (no doubt including and led by the United States), “the Gulf States” (presumably including and led by Saudi Arabia), and “Turkey” (just Turkey).

Soros’ correspondence hacked: secret files on Ukraine revealed

Hackers from the DCLeaks organization published more than 300 closed files of the Soros Fund, relating to Ukraine as well as home and foreign policy of the US.

The documents also include lists of grants given to journalists and media centres. The papers describe work of about 100 journalists who would report on events in the Crimea and the east of Ukraine. It is noted in one of the documents that total sum intended for funding of the project makes up about 500,000 dollars a year. Such information portals as Krym.Realii, Hromadske TV and Ostrov are named among those cooperation contacts.

Burning Down the House

There’s a new feature to the Anything-Goes-and-Nothing-Matters economy: Nothing-Adds-Up. The magicians who pretend to measure the growth of GDP (Gross Domestic Product — the monetary value of all the finished goods and services) came up with a second quarter “adjusted” figure of 1.2 percent. That would have to be construed by anyone acquainted with basic econ stats as perfectly dismal. And yet the Bureau of Labor Statistics put out a sparkly Nonfarm Payroll Report of 255,000 for July, way above the forecast 180,000.

There were so many ways to game the jobs number — between people forced to work more than one shit job and the notorious “birth/death model” used to just make up any old number for political purposes — that no one can take this information seriously. Anyway, the GDP number was instantly forgotten and the jobs number launched the stock markets to previously uncharted record altitude.

Election Meddling: Bad if Done to USA, Bad to Complain About if Done by USA

The US government doesn’t occasionally meddle in the domestic affairs of other countries or try to overthrow their governments—it does so as a matter of course. It’s in its DNA, its animating ethos.

To omit the endless string of examples of US interfering in other countries in an editorial about fears of US interfering in other countries is at best negligent and at worst deliberately obtuse. It’s hard to describe foreign leaders as being paranoid about US meddling and coups if you acknowledge that the US has been involved in meddling and coups for more than a century.

Soros Group ‘Trained’ Socialists To Combat Will Of The People

Leaked documents from the Open Society Foundations show the group to have actively trained socialist MEPs to combat populist parties and shut down free speech.

Billionaire Soros doubles bet against US stocks

The 86-year-old investor's fund has reported it had arranged ‘put’ options on roughly 4 million shares as of June 30. This is up from 2.1 million shares as of March 31.

A put option gives investor the right, not an obligation, to sell these shares in the future. This means Soros will earn, if the S&P 500 index goes down. The fund didn’t specify the price or expiration of these positions.
