Clinton Challenged to Break Up—and Break Up With—Wall Street Banks

Faced with the possibility of yet another Wall Street crony taking over the Oval Office next year, progressive lawmakers are directly challenging Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton to break up—and break up with—the big banks.

Speaking at an annual meeting for progressive organizers and advocacy groups on Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called on presidential hopefuls to support recently introduced legislation that would stem the ever-turning revolving door between government and the financial industry.

"We have a presidential election coming up. I think anyone running for that job—anyone who wants the power to make every key economic appointment and nomination across the federal government—should say loud and clear that they agree: we don’t run this country for Wall Street and mega corporations. We run it for people," Warren said, according to her prepared remarks, during the keynote address.

A light at the end of the pro-Israel tunnel?

If Jeremy Corbyn wins leadership of the UK Labour Party foreign policy could take a turn for the better

Note how the UK Government will not lift a finger to break the crippling 8-year siege of Gaza or protect humanitarian flotillas from Israeli assault on the high seas, but would happily bomb the hell out of Libya, Syria or anywhere else the US/Israel axis points its finger.

Wisconsin Judges Who Received Campaign Funds from Business Groups Order Destruction of Evidence about Groups’ Connection with Gov. Scott Walker

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

At the height of its power, ancient Rome created many new technologies which allowed it to become the supreme power over their portion of the world. These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

Hundreds of children brain damaged by the swine flu vaccine to receive $90 million in financial compensation from UK government

The swine flu vaccine caused severe brain damage in over 800 children across Europe, and the UK government has now agreed to pay $90 million in compensation to those victims as part of a vaccine injury settlement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wait a moment! You mean the TAXPAYERS have to pay for the damage that the vaccine companies caused?!? Why aren't the vaccine companies being held financially liable for the damage they cause?

President Obama postures as prison reformer

US President Barack Obama visited Federal Correctional Institution El Reno, a medium-security prison in Oklahoma on Thursday, as part of a series of public events aimed at presenting Obama as an opponent of mass incarceration.

The tour of El Reno was the first time a sitting president had ever visited a federal penitentiary. Obama visited an emptied cell block, where he spoke with six nonviolent drug offenders for a VICE documentary to be shown on HBO this fall.

AIPAC and Its “Better” Iran Deal

Say Congress rejects this deal. Then Obama vetoes it. Then, in no small part because of AIPAC’s balls-to-the-wall lobbying against the deal, Republican hawks manage to peel off enough Democrats to override the veto. Then Obama is blocked by law from waiving Iran sanctions, and the nuclear deal collapses before implementation even begins. The big question: Then what?

AIPAC insists that the “alternative to this bad deal is a better deal,” but how does one get there? One way would be to say to the Iranians, Uh, hey guys. That was tough for you, but you gotta give us more, because of the Israel Lobby. But that’s not going to work: the 20 months of talks since the signing of the interim accord in Geneva—which AIPAC did not publicly object to—were a painstaking affair marked by compromises and concessions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AIPAC and Israel do not want a deal at all. They want Iran smashed into little pieces, crushed as was the case with Iraq, so long as American kids have to do the dirty work!

What's Wrong with Our Monetary System and How to Fix It

But money is too important to be left to the bankers. There is no good reason to give any private group a lucrative monopoly over the creation of money; money creation should be the public service most people mistakenly believe it to be. Further, privatized money creation allows a few large banks and financial institutions not only to profit by simply making bookkeeping entries, but to direct overall investment in the economy to their corporate cronies, not the public at large.

Ordinary people can get the financing they need only on burdensome if not ruinous terms, leaving them as debt peons weighed down by mortgages, student loans, auto loans, credit card balances, etc. The interest payments extracted from these loans feed the private investment machine of Wall Street finance, represented by the ultimate creditor class: the notorious “one percenters.”

Trump Swiftboats McCain the Way Bush Swiftboated John Kerry

The chickens of 2004 have come home to roost in the Republican Party. The Republican strategists around George W. Bush in that year decided to rip John Kerry’s face off by attacking him, in accordance with Karl Rove’s dirty tactics, at his strength. Bush, who hid out from the Vietnam War in the Texas Air Reserve faced a decorated war hero in Senator Kerry. A campaign of falsehoods and vilication was gotten up against him by unscrupulous propaganda gangsters that questioned his heroism and his medals. Their charges were shown to be without merit, but they no doubt did hurt Kerry’s reputation and campaign with their falsehoods.

Now another Republican candidate is trying to swiftboat a decorated veteran. But this time the candidate is Donald Trump and the veteran is Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). (McCain, by the way, defended Kerry in 2004; but then he had been the victim of Bushie dirty tricks in the 2000 primaries and knew the filthy ends to which they were willing to go).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During his career McCain crashed 5 US aircraft. That makes him an enemy ace, I think. And then there was that "wet start" stung on the USS Forrestal.

It is clear that the panic is on over Trump's soaring popularity.

Israelis, Saudis Considering Attack on Iran in Wake of Nuke Deal

By Brandon Turbeville

I have argued from the very beginning of the US-Iran nuclear talks that the diplomacy taking place was nothing more than theatre to be used later in the rush to war as evidence that the US did “everything in its power” to avoid confrontation. Considering the years of propaganda surrounding Iran and its nuclear program, it should be clear that the recent US-Iran nuclear deal was nothing more than a show...

FDA Does Big Pharma's Dirty Work Again, This Time to Censor the Benefits of Essential Oils

Many essential oil users claim to have eliminated the need for over-the-counter medications due to using specific combinations of essential oils to target common maladies...

Concentrated Wealth + Widespread Stupidity = End of Democracy

Today’s America is not a democracy:

“Dark Money Groups Are Funded By Dark Money Groups That Fund Dark Money Groups That Fund…”

That terrific investigative news report by Paul Blumenthal at Huffington Post, on 9 November 2013, penetrated beyond what the U.S. oligarchy — or more traditionally called aristocracy — requires its dark-money groups to disclose to the Federal Election Commission; and so Blumenthal researched also into what dark-money groups are required to report to the IRS (America’s tax-authorities).

Army eyes North Cascades for helicopter training

Army aviation officials at Joint Base Lewis-McChord want to create a North Cascades training area for helicopter pilots to practice flyovers and high-altitude landings on U.S. Forest Service lands.

The high-elevation mountain training area would extend over an aerial space largely east of the Cascades from around Leavenworth up to the Canadian border.

It would include seven remote landing zones, including one just inside the boundary of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area and another within a mile of the Pacific Crest Trail north of Highway 20.

What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

By: Gregg Prescott, M.S.

www.in5d.com.

There is a war going on right now and it doesn’t involve guns or the military industrial complex.
It’s a war on consciousness and most people are clueless that it even exists.

In the beginning… there was religion and government.
It is blatantly obvious that religion has been teaching either half truths or full out lies, right from the start. According to the Christian bible, God created Adam and Eve and told them to be fruitful and multiply.

Based under this premise, we would all be the products of incest.

“The administration has not only the right, but the duty, in my opinion, to pursue Fifth Column movements,” Graham, R-S.C., told Gonzales during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Feb. 6. 2006

British Royal Nazi Salute – a Sign of the Times

The British royal family is up in arms – excuse the pun – over old video footage that shows the young Queen Elizabeth giving a Heil Hitler salute. A photograph published on its front page by British tabloid newspaper The Sun has caused a storm of controversy, with the British monarchy denouncing it as an invasion of privacy. But the real significance is that the image shows how Western so-called democracies were – and still are – so close to embracing fascism.

There was a consensus among Britain’s ruling class during the 1930s that quietly but enthusiastically endorsed Hitler and fascism as a bulwark against democracy and socialism in particular.

New Obama Initiative To Ban Guns For Some Social Security Recipients, Veterans, and Disabled

By Brandon Turbeville

Whenever one thinks the Obama administration’s war on the Second Amendment couldn’t get any more insane, Barack Obama prances onto the stage to prove everyone wrong yet again.

This time, it is not merely a carefully planned and orchestrated jig on the graves of mass shooting victims or pathetic whining about “gun crime” and the amount of time he must give regarding the issue. It is a push to ban a large number of Social Security benefits recipients from owning guns...

UN Agenda 21 Still Advancing Worldwide

By Bruce Tanner

What is Agenda 21? — Quoting from the UN website: "Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment."(sic)

Many have said that Agenda 21 is now outdated policy that's fallen into neglect. This is far from true. For example, among many other things, the slow-motion train wreck of our ongoing world economic collapse supports UN Agenda 21, and the UN conference on "Post-2015 Sustainability Agenda" coming this September is a clear reiteration. Apologists say that Agenda 21 is only "Soft Law," a policy that has no teeth. But they're lying. In 20 years, through stealth implementation, this plan has become embedded in local policies all over the United States...

Donald Trump, Drudge, Israel Blast Obama Nuke Deal With Iran

At an event in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Tuesday, Presidential candidate Donald Trump said, “I don’t understand the president. He dealt from desperation, and he shouldn’t have been desperate.” The real estate mogul went on to criticize the withdrawal of sanctions on Iran, the limitations on access to nuclear sites by inspectors and the exclusion of four American prisoners in the country from the deal.

Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate developer, casino owner, entertainment mogul, TV personality and father of a woman who converted to Judaism and says she observes Shabbat, tossed hit hat into the huge ring of Republican candidates for president Tuesday.

What might really be interesting is if he does not win the Republican nomination but runs as an Independent. third-party candidate. That would make for the most interesting presidential election since former Alabama governor and segregationist George Wallace’s four pitches for the presidency, earning him the description of America’s “most influential loser.”

Odierno says U.S military is spread thin: ‘We’re going to have to say what we’re not going to do’

We are using 3 brigades based in eastern Europe to fight Russian rebels in Ukraine!
Now that is news!

Gen. Ordierno said decisions about cutting the size of the force from 570,000 to the current 490,000 were made several years ago when the Pentagon expected a peaceful Europe, a declining commitment in Afghanistan and no return in Iraq, Reutersreported.

Instead, the Army is regularly using three brigades in eastern Europe to combat Russian rebels in Ukraine and another three brigades in Afghanistan, a brigade in Iraq, one in Kuwait and another brigade will rotate to South Korea, Gen. Ordierno said.

Hillary’s secret war

Does she really think the American voters will overlook her criminal behavior and put her in the White House where she can pardon herself?

Recently, in conjunction with my colleagues Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne, I read the transcripts of an interview Ms. Browne did with a man named Marc Turi, and Ms. Herridge asked me to review emails to and from State Department and congressional officials during the years when Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.

What I saw has persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Mrs. Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress in a venue where the law required her to be truthful. Here is the backstory.

Mr. Turi is a lawfully licensed American arms dealer.

Obama Is in a Bind on Drugs That Could Cost Consumers Billions of Dollars

The Obama administration is caught in a trap as it tries to bring home a trade deal with its Pacific Rim partners. Some of the chief beneficiaries may be big drug companies like Novartis AG, Roche Holding AG, and Pfizer Inc. while the losers could be consumers in both the U.S. and the region.

The administration says it’s bound by congressionally imposed instructions to try to get as much current U.S. law as possible into trade accords -- including stringent protections for patented drugs that it’s repeatedly tried to ease at home to encourage more cost-saving generics.

The poor and the working class in the United States know what it is to be Greek. They know underemployment and unemployment. They know life without a pension. They know existence on a few dollars a day. They know gas and electricity being turned off because of unpaid bills. They know the crippling weight of debt. They know being sick and unable to afford medical care. They know the state seizing their meager assets, a process known in the United States as “civil asset forfeiture,” which has permitted American police agencies to confiscate more than $3 billion in cash and property. They know the profound despair and abandonment that come when schools, libraries, neighborhood health clinics, day care services, roads, bridges, public buildings and assistance programs are neglected or closed. They know the financial elites’ hijacking of democratic institutions to impose widespread misery in the name of austerity. They, like the Greeks, know what it is to be abandoned.

‘No war hero, loser’: Republicans outraged after Trump’s attack on McCain

“He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured,” the real estate mogul explained.

Flashback 1898 - HOW THE SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR CHANGED THE WORLD

As the turn of the century approached, America was strong, independent, and what the Globalists would call "isolationist" - a stupid propaganda term used to mock the desire to maintain peaceful commerce and neutral relations with foreign countries. The very thought of picking a fight overseas was as foreign to the American psyche as homosexual "marriage" or government housing. . .

. . . In 1897, The Globalist "Powers That Be" had arranged for the ambitious control-freak, New York City Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt, to be appointed as Assistant Secretary of the Navy. In February of 1898, TR, on his own initiative, ordered the USS Maine to provocatively sail into Cuba's Havana Harbor (controlled by Spain). In a remarkable "coincidence", the Maine "spontaneously" and oh-so-conveniently blew up, killing 251 American sailors. TR and the Yellow Press wasted no time in blaming Spain for the "mine attack".

The Nuclear Agreement; Fantasies vs Facts

Iranians are celebrating the prospects of a long awaited relief from the economic pain that the sanctions had imposed upon the nation. While they blame the United States government for what they believe to have been an unjustified and unfair treatment, they are divided as to what the true motivating factors could have been behind America’s animosity toward Iran.

The majority opinion points to America’s insatiable appetite for a hegemonic control over the region and its energy resources. A much smaller segment of the population comprising of the more educated elites, believe that Israel and its Zionist supporters in the United States have been at the helm and steering America’s foreign policy in the Middle East toward Israel’s preferences, even at the expense of America’s own strategic interests.

Iran Deal: Ploy for Future Sabotage?

All in all, it is incontestable that the US and Israel are the foremost belligerents, aggressors and destabilizers throughout the world. These imperial forces relentlessly target countries like Iran that simply seeks to exercise its right to self-determination. This self-evident truth is plainly discernable and hidden in open view if one took the care to read through the hubristic musings of imperial-oriented think tanks that have set the West on an endless warpath towards Armageddon.

MH-17 Mystery One Year Later: A New Tonkin Gulf Case?

Like the Tonkin Gulf case, the evidence on the MH-17 case was shaky and contradictory from the start. But, in both cases, U.S. officials confidently pointed fingers at the “enemy.” President Lyndon Johnson blamed North Vietnam in 1964 and Secretary of State John Kerry implicated ethnic Russian rebels and their backers in Moscow in 2014. In both cases, analysts in the U.S. intelligence community were less certain and even reached contrary conclusions once more evidence was available.

In both cases, those divergent assessments appear to have been suppressed so as not to interfere with what was regarded as a national security priority – confronting “North Vietnamese aggression” in 1964 and “Russian aggression” in 2014. To put out the contrary information would have undermined the government’s policy and damaged “credibility.” So the facts – or at least the conflicting judgments – were hidden.

Hillary Forbids Young Supporters from Talking to Press

The Hillary Clinton campaign forbid young supporters from talking to the press at an event last night in Iowa:

"Here's what struck me," said Susan Page of USA Today, "when I read the coverage in the Des Moines Register this morning. Jennifer Jacobs, who's been on your show, was covering this last night. Big demonstrations outside of young people for O'Malley and Hillary Clinton. She went up to the Clinton supporters -- these are protesters for Clinton -- and they were told they were not allowed to [speak to] a reporter."

Page continued, "Now, why in the world would the campaign tell their own supporters who came out to campaign in favor Hillary Clinton ... these are the young people, college kids, for Hillary, and they've been told they can't talk to reporters. Why in the world would you do that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why, indeed, except for knowing that there are some very uncomfortable facts these reports might know about her professional, and personal, past, she does not want dredged up with supporters, at this point in her foundering candidacy.

Hillary Clinton - War Goddess, Corporate Shill, Anti-Populist

All US presidential cycles are money controlled corrupted processes with no legitimacy whatever. Voters have no say despite believing otherwise.

They naively think electing new bums replacing old ones improves things. Their choices are among an array of long ago bought and paid for candidates supporting what most harms them.

The late Gore Vidal said "(b)y the time a (candidate) gets to be presidential material, (he or she has) been bought ten times over."

"There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party (with) two right wings: Republican and Democrat," he explained.

Hillary Clinton perhaps represents the worst choice among an array of aspirants looking more like a police lineup. Previous articles explained her warmongering lust for endless conflicts. She's unabashedly hawkish.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The choices coming at us this coming Presidential election are horrifically bleak.

By the time the primaries roll around, the candidates have been fully vetted by the corporations which own them, and only those with the best chance of doing the absolute best by those corporations will have a chance to compete for the big "prize" of the presidency.

We have an elaborate, Kabuki-like process of elections in this country, but at the end of the day, they are simply a mechanism, engineered to make the American people feel they have some control over their destiny, when they absolutely do not.

And if you don't believe me, just ask yourself; when was the last time this country's leadership actually negotiated something which actually bettered your circumstances in this country?!? If you are hesitant, trust me, you are not alone; it has been one heck of a long, long time, and things do not appear to be getting better for most of us any of us soon.

Donald Trump says he is no apprentice when it comes to Israel

By Jacob Kamaras/JNS.org

In the middle of a phone interview with JNS.org on June 26, billionaire real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump leaves his desk to scan the wall of his office for awards he has received from the Jewish community.

Trump reads the text of some relevant plaques before returning to his desk. But before this reporter can move on to the next question, Trump eagerly points out that he was the grand marshal of New York City’s annual Salute to Israel Parade (now the Celebrate Israel Parade) in 2004 “at a time when it was quite dangerous to do that” and “a pretty tough time for Israel,” in the middle of the second Palestinian intifada (uprising against Israel). He also cites a video endorsement he gave Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the Jewish state’s January 2013 election, expressing pride that it was “at the time the only ad done by a celebrity” for Netanyahu.

Trump loves Israel and Netanyahu and hates Obama. His candidacy for the GOP nomination is going to wake up people tired of political correctness.
By: Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu

Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate developer, casino owner, entertainment mogul, TV personality and father of a woman who converted to Judaism and says she observes Shabbat, tossed hit hat into the huge ring of Republican candidates for president Tuesday.

Being a maverick gives him the image of sticking by his word. When he says he loves Israel, he puts his money where his mouth is. Trump has a huge real estate project in Netanya, and his daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, looks favorably on Israel for real estate investment.

Her husband is from an Orthodox Jewish family, and she has taken her conversion seriously, adding “Yael” to her name and saying that “we’re pretty observant, more than some, less than others.”

Krauthammer: Talking about Trump is 'a complete waste of time'

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Wednesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that talking about 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is a “complete waste of time.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump has become a real danger to not just the GOP (where he is leading in the polls) but to the political status quo as a whole.Trump is willing to talk about the real problems confronting this nation, rather than hide behind the contrived fringe issue that have become a permanent feature of every election year, gay marriage, women's rights, race relations, and (this year) the Confederate flag) used as distractions by candidates not wishing to talk about that which truly affects all of our lives, the crashing economy, the mired wars of conquest, a capital city more interested in what Israel wants than what the American people want, and the problems which have arrived along with a flood of illegal immigrants. Unfazed by the label of "politically incorrect", Trump has voiced what many Americans already know. A large number of the illegals are criminals in their own countries fleeing prosecution, members of MS-13, carrying drugs, infected with contagious illnesses, and already committing crimes in the US way out of proportion to their percentage of the population. 75% of Federal Drug arrests right now involve illegals. Mexico is taking advantage of the open borders to get rid of its least desirable citizens and is hardly the first government to do so. When the US opened its borders to Cuban refugees in the 1980s, Castro emptied his prisons, put them all on boats headed north, and Florida has suffered from the resulting crime wave ever since!

Trump refuses to live in the politically correct fantasy world of the political class. That is why people like him. He is operating in the real world, something career politicians never do, which is why all people like Charles Krauthammer can do is blubber how unimportant Trump is and try to ignore him. But Trump is important because he is stirring the pot, and forcing the career politicians to deal with real issues of concern to the American people, such as the crashing economy, the mired wars of conquest, and Congress' obeisance to a foreign power.

I have no expectations Trump will win. Already we see the corporate media and the party apparatchiks moving to eject him as they did Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012. Failing that, I would not rule out the "Robert Kennedy option" to keep Trump from spoiling the little party Wall Street and Washington DC have had going all this time.

But Trump is a refreshing breath of truth in a long-simmering sea of political bovine excrement, and for that reason I wish him success.

Why President Hillary Clinton WOULD Go To War With Iran

Clinton started out innocently enough, saying: ‘Based on the briefings I received and a review of the documents, I support the agreement because it can help us prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon’. Continuing, she said that the ‘agreement can make the United States, Israel and our Arab partners safer’.

She then went on to say that ‘the message to Iran should be loud and clear: we will never allow you to acquire a nuclear weapon; not just during the term of this agreement – never’. Why exactly does she believe the United States should be directing the internal affairs of a sovereign country?

Then, she really went off the deep end:

‘Signing is just the beginning. As president I would use every tool in our arsenal to compel rigorous Iranian compliance.’

‘Just the beginning’?!
