Facebook admits it works with government, as efforts to blame Russia for everything intensify

US President Donald Trump has accused the media of bias over a continuing “Russia hoax.” The statement comes on the heels of a Facebook investigation into alleged Russia-linked ads on the social network during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The Russia hoax continues, now it’s ads on Facebook,” Trump tweeted on Friday.

Apart from allegations, no evidence has been presented.

LEAKED TAX RETURNS: George Soros Sent More Than $1.7M to Antifa

Donor’s to the anti-Trump “resistance” movement have been previously shrouded in secrecy. New unredacted tax forms obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that George Soros sent more than $1.7M to an antifa-linked foundation known as The Center for Community Change Action, a Washington DC based non-profit.

For the first time, the sources of money for Antifa have been revealed to the public. Previous claims of Soros funding to Antifa were dismissed as conjecture.

SAUDIS ROCK US ALLIANCE, SAY THEY’LL BUY RUSSIA’S TOP PLANE KILLER, S-400

That rumble under your feet you sensed this morning was the earthquake caused by the decision of one of America’s closest allies, Saudis Arabia, to join Turkey in buying Russia’s vaunted S-400 surface to air missile system. The announcement carried extra diplomatic weight as Saudi King Salman was visiting Russia when the Saudis made the announcement. Former NATO and European Command leader, retired Adm. James Stavridis, called the sale “a step backwards in US foreign and defense policy.” Since World War II, when President Roosevelt agreed with King Faisal that we would guarantee Saudi sovereignty in return for access to their oil, the kingdom has been one of our closest allies, notwithstanding the 911 attacks led by Saudi citizens.

Las Vegas Shooting – Paul Craig Roberts

You will have to make up your own minds about Las Vegas. Why no videos of Stephen Paddock carrying in the many cases of 23 firearms and ammunition?

I don’t know if it was a false flag attack, and if so, by who or for what purpose. I don’t expect to ever know. A story is set in place by officials and media. The only way to ever know is to personally investigate.

Mueller Takes Over "Trump Dossier" Probe After Intel Committee "Hits A Wall"

Now that the FBI and investigators from the Senate Intelligence Committee have given up on trying to verify the contents, Reuters is reporting that the infamous "Trump Dossier" hot potato has passed to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team.

According to Reuters, Mueller has taken over the FBI inquiry into the dossier after it was widely reported earlier this year that the FBI failed to verify its most salacious allegations, but still used it to justify launching an investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

IRS Awards Multi-Million Dollar Fraud-Prevention Contract To Equifax Who Was Hacked TWICE

By Aaron Kesel

You can’t make this up. The IRS awarded Equifax with a multi-million dollar fraud prevention no-bid contract despite that its own execs committed market fraud when they sold shares before telling the public they were hacked.

The IRS will pay Equifax $7.25 million to help verify taxpayer identities and prevent fraud under a no-bid contract issued last week...

Leading EU strategist snuggles up to Israel lobby

A leading European Union strategist may be in denial about the full extent of her relations with the Israel lobby.

Nathalie Tocci doubles up as director of the Rome-based “think tank” IAI and as an adviser to Federica Mogherini, the EU’s foreign affairs chief.

The IAI – with whom Tocci has worked since 2006 – is viewed as something of a partner by the European Leadership Network, a self-described “pro-Israel advocacy” group.

According to a briefing document prepared by that group, the “seeds were sown” lately for an annual forum of “strategic dialogue” between Italy and Israel.

The IAI and the European Leadership Network are cooperating on this “important endeavor which could hopefully be realized by the end of this year,” the document added.

Tocci sought to contradict that claim. “No such project exists,” she stated by email.

Her denial should be treated with skepticism.

There Is No Such Thing as ‘Health Care’

Indiscriminate use of such a broad term may distort an important debate.

Health care in the United States represents about $3.2 trillion spent every year, or close to a fifth of the national GDP. As an industry, it employs twelve and a half million Americans, or slightly less than 10 percent of all of employed Americans. In 2015, 83.6 percent of Americans had contact with a health-care professional, and Americans went on 884.7 million doctor visits.

Trump to Receive Multiple Options on Iran Nuclear Deal: Tillerson

Trump will be presented with multiple options regarding the future of the Iran nuclear deal ahead of an Oct. 15 deadline to certify whether Tehran is complying with the pact, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday.

Tillerson did not disclose details about the kinds of options he will present to Trump. He also declined to directly answer a question about whether he shared Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ assessment to Congress on Tuesday that Iran was “fundamentally” in compliance with the accord.

Trump Told UN Chief: Netanyahu Harder To Convince On Peace Than Abbas

According to those familiar with the situation, President Trump briefed UN Security-General Antonio Guterres on his efforts at restarting the Israel-Palestinian peace process, saying that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is proven a difficult problem to overcome.

Trump conceded that both leaders are “problematic,” and that it’s difficult to convince either on the peace process, but that Netanyahu is “the bigger problem,” and a lot harder to bring on board with his efforts.

Trump was said to have expressed optimism about eventually reaching a deal anyhow>>>

The left has lost control of its useful idiots

Of course, there’s no doubt BLM believes both America and apple pie are racist. They think everything is. And that’s precisely why these slogan-slinging-shout-down groups can’t be taken seriously– they see no virtue in anything about the nation’s past or present and have no clear argument for how to create a better future. They’re simply interested in refusing anyone with whom they disagree the right to have an opinion.

Mass Shootings: The Military-Entertainment Complex’s Culture of Violence Turns Deadly

You want to stop the gun violence? Stop the worship of violence that permeates our culture. Stop glorifying the military industrial complex with flyovers and salutes during sports spectacles. Stop acting as if there is anything patriotic about military exercises and occupations that bomb hospitals and schools. Stop treating guns and war as entertainment fodder in movies, music, video games, toys, amusement parks, reality TV and more. Stop distribution weapons of war to the local police and turning them into extensions of the military—weapons that have no business being anywhere but on a battlefield.

U.S. Based Charity Is Robbing Mexico’s Indigenous Communities of Water

By Derrick Broze

A religious charity based in the United States claims to be helping the poor, but in reality, Living Water is contributing to a shrinking water supply for Mexico’s indigenous communities.

A report from Open Democracy details a disturbing system of corporate and state privilege and theft of indigenous resources. Journalist Tamara Pearson investigated the situation in Puebla, Mexico, specifically looking at the activities of Coca Cola, the charity Living Water, and non-profit Techo. “Here, people living in the wealthy part of town get all the water they need, and Coca Cola gets first dibs on the best water in the state. Meanwhile, the rest us get running water for half an hour a week, or none at all,” Pearson writes...

Trump Talks Gun Control, And What We Will More Than Likely See From The Government

Dismissing Trump’s statements outright is simply for those who don’t know what his stance on guns was BEFORE he campaigned for the presidency and how wishy-washy he can be on the issue. Those who do know, are not being so calm about his comments. Of course, there’s no real reason to be up in arms (no pun intended) just yet, because nothing has been proposed, but it isn’t hard to see it popping up, and soon.

Another Mass Shooting, Another Grab For Guns: 6 Gun Facts

Those who are determined to carry out premeditated mass murder like that which unfolded in Las Vegas, will do so no matter what implements they have at their disposal. Figuring out what factors actual cause an individual or organization to contemplate and carry out mass murder is the only way to stop or reduce future acts of violence. Examining the heavily medicated, violent, and intentionally divided population of America and the socioeconomic doldrums they inhabit would be a good place to start.

Who Are ‘The People’ Anyway?

Every time I listen to Sean Hannity or some other Trump-enthusiast stressing the “mission” for which our president was elected, I hear flattering references to “the people.” Mind you, I’m not against populist tropes being used to execute an end-run around the likes of Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi. Moreover, I’ve never pretended to be a “Never-Trump” establishment Republican. My endorsement of Trump during last year’s presidential campaign is too much a matter of record to be credibly denied. But the endless appeals to “the people” have begun to wear on me.

Michelle Obama: ‘People Don’t Trust Politics’ Because GOP Is ‘All Men, All White’

Tuesday at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, former first lady Michelle Obama said when she attended the State of the Union address she would notice the Republican side was “all men, all white,” and that was why she argued many people of color “don’t trust politics.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Michelle, you incredible nincompoop, people of all races, creeds, colors, genders, orientations do not trust politicians of all races, creeds, colors, genders, because politicians as a class are greedy, corrupt, self-serving liars who would sell their own mother for a dollar! A politician (of all races, creeds, colors, genders) is someone who will take your money, screw your spouse, and still vote against you!

The GOP Base Is Beyond Trump’s Control

You can get elected as an outsider, but once in office, you have to actually govern.

The conservative movement is caught in a Catch-22 of its own making. In the war against “the establishment,” we have made being an outsider the most important qualification for a politician. The problem? Once elected, outsiders by definition become insiders. This isn’t just a semantic point. The Constitution requires politicians to work through the system if they’re going to get anything done.

Donald Trump as the Slave Master of the Black Athlete Plantation

First, let’s get this out of the way. The NFL kneeling protests have nothing to do with the flag or the anthem. They are about the persistent problem of racism in America, especially with regard to policing. Trump and his army of racist overseer trolls can try to spin it anyway they want, but it’s about racism. (Trump lamented that white NASCAR drivers don’t bother us with this nonsense.) They can act all butt-hurt about how much the flag means to them, but it’s not about the flag. It’s a common racist trick to make any unwanted racial protest an “attack on America.” Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights activists of the 1960s were routinely called “communists” who wanted to “destroy” America. Trump’s pathetic attempt to make this about the flag only reinforces the fact that this is about racism. “It’s not what the black people say it is. It’s what I say it is.”

Russia is not going to be hung like Saddam Hussein or murdered like Gaddafi. I have written many times that provoking nuclear powers such as Russia and China is the most extreme form of recklessness and irresponsibility. The crazed morons in Washington are risking the life of the planet. The presstitutes are worse than the whores that they are. They never question the path to war; they only amplify it. Washington’s craven, cowardly, moronic vassal states in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, and the rest of the EU/NATO idiots are, by their cooperation with Washington, begging for their own destruction. Nowhere in the West is there a sign of intelligence. Will Washington follow Adolf Hitler’s folly and march into Russia?

Escobar: The Future Of The EU Is At Stake In Catalonia

Nano-Franco is Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, whose heroic shock troops were redeployed from a serious nationwide terrorist alert to hammer with batons and fire rubber bullets not against jihadis but … voters.

At least six schools became the terrain of what was correctly called The Battle of Barcelona.

Extreme right-wingers even held a demonstration inside Barcelona. Yet this was not shown on Spanish TV because it contradicted the official Madrid narrative.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How Spain, and the rest of Europe define, and work with, the Catalonian referendum, in a peaceful, responsible, adult way, is definitely going to define the future of the EU itself.

ROGUE FEDERAL JUDGE PREPARING TO DECLARE TRUMP’S PARDON OF ARPAIO UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Judge Susan Bolton of the U.S. District Court in Arizona is scheduled to hold a hearing in Phoenix on Oct. 4 in which she appears ready to go rogue by declaring President Trump’s pardon unconstitutional and sentencing Sheriff Arpaio to jail time after refusing to vacate her bench trial guilty verdict.

To sentence Arpaio to jail time, Bolton first will have to agree with the Democratic members of Congress, ruling form the federal bench that President Trump’s pardon was. unconstitutional – a move that would create a constitutional crisis requiring Arpaio’s attorneys to file an immediate appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Department of Justice to order the U.S. Marshalls to stand down in any attempt Bolton might make to arrest and incarcerate Arpaio.

Catalan Leaders Seek to Make Referendum Binding

Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has submitted the results of the the October 1 referendum to the Cataloina parliament, looking to make the vote official. It was a decisive “yes,” with an impressive turnout made doubly impressive by the violent Spanish police crackdown throughout the region.

The more immediate concern is to do something about that crackdown, however. Puigdemont is seeking international mediation following the vote, saying he wants to reach an understanding with the Spanish government, and avoid a “traumatic break.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The level of violence visited upon the Catalans by the Spanish police during this referendum very much reminds one of the level of violence inflicted by Franco's fascist police upon the demonstrators of his era.

And in this age of instant video and communications, there was no way for Rajoy to suppress what the world saw on Sunday:

$21 Trillion Went Missing From 2 US Agencies Since 1988.

Catherine Austin Fitts issued an updated report on Missing Money. She found a total of $21 trillion went missing from two federal agencies since 1988. That would be from HUD (Housing and Urban Development) and DOD (Department of Defense.) She was assisted by Dr Mark Skidmore and his graduate students who found these staggering sums went walkabout citing government sources. Dr Skidmore is also a co-editor of the Journal of Urban Affairs.

The government speak term for missing money is Undocumentable Adjustments.

In some years more money went missing from an agency than was budgeted for the year. How was that possible?
