Chilcot, Israel and the Jewish lobby

Gilad Atzmon wonders whether Chilcot’s failure to mention Israel’s role in Tony Blair’s war on Iraq was related to the presence on his team of Martin Gilbert and Lawrence Freedman, both Jewish with Gilbert being an active supporter of Zionism.

"To Reassure The Public" - Paul Ryan Asks That Hillary Not Receive Any Classified Data

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan has officially asked that Hillary Clinton not receive any classified information during the election campaign, something Ryan believes would reassure the public that the nation's secrets will remain secure throughout the campaign.

Hillary Rebuffs Bernie’s Policy Demands

Eager to hold the political “center,” Hillary Clinton has budged little on Bernie Sanders’s policy proposals beyond nice-sounding platitudes, a strategy that could lead to clashes at the Democratic convention, says Lawrence Davidson.

Hillary Clinton has pursued the presidency for almost a decade with a tenacious determination. She almost achieved the nomination in 2008 only to lose to Barack Obama. That led to an eight-year stifling of this ambition.

Finally, in the long run-up to the 2016 election, she was convinced the nomination was hers.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

First and foremost it was not so much a foreign policy disaster as a flat-out war crime for which Blair as chief perpetrator must be tried. And so must his Cabinet, who carry collective responsibility.

There will be mega-trouble if heads don’t roll.

Iraq verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

Hillary Clinton Backs Monsanto: Claims that “To Be Anti-Monsanto” Is to Be “Pro Global-Warming”

On June 27th, I reported Hillary Clinton’s having privately told GMO industry lobbyists, on 25 June 2014, that the federal government should subsidize GMO firms in order to enable them to buy “insurance against risk,” and that without such federal subsidies, “this [insurance] is going to be an increasing challenge” for the industry to afford. I also reported that, in an interview she did immediately afterward with the GMO industry’s lobbying organization’s (the Biotechnology Industry Organization’s, or BIO’s) head, she compared the opponents of GMOs to the opponents of action in response to global warming; she said, in effect, that both environmental groups are ignoramuses who don’t know what scientists are saying about both the ’safety’ of GMOs and the dangers of global warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's all about the money for Clinton, and not safety of what GMOS create.

Alleged "science" can be bought in the 21st century. So, if these alleged GMO corporate-funded 'bio-scientists' want to prove their statements correct, I have a modest proposal for them, and for Secretary Clinton as well,; have yourselves, your partners, and kids eating GMO foods for one year, and see if this happens to you:

Shock findings in new GMO study: Rats fed lifetime of GM corn grow horrifying tumors, 70% of females die early Wednesday, September 19, 2012 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...) Tags: GMO study, cancer tumors, organ damage Facebook (110,677)Twitter GMO study (Natural News) Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto's genetically modified corn. The study has been deemed "the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats." News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors... tumors so large the rats even had difficulty breathing in some cases. GMOs may be the new thalidomide. "Monsanto Roundup weedkiller and GM maize implicated in 'shocking' new cancer study" wrote The Grocery, a popular UK publication. (http://www.thegrocer.co.uk/topics/technology...) It reported, "Scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females." The Daily Mail reported, "Fresh row over GM foods as French study claims rats fed the controversial crops suffered tumors." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/artic...) It goes on to say: "The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group." The study, led by Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen, was the first ever study to examine the long-term (lifetime) effects of eating GMOs. You may find yourself thinking it is absolutely astonishing that no such studies were ever conducted before GM corn was approved for widespread use by the USDA and FDA, but such is the power of corporate lobbying and corporate greed. The study was published in The Food & Chemical Toxicology Journal and was just presented at a news conference in London.

Seralini was later vindicated in his studies, and his science, in a French lawsuit:

Professor Séralini, Who Showed that GMOs Cause Tumors in Rats, Vindicated by French Court in Second Lawsuit Monsanto has been dealt a stunning defeat in a French Court: Judge declares professor correct in claims that his studies showed that GMO foods cause tumors in rats In a huge blow to Monsanto, a French court has declared that French professor Gilles-Eric Séralini was in fact right when he claimed that GMO foods fed to rats caused tumors. The original article outlining the study was pulled from the journal Food and Toxicology, but only after fierce, ugly warfare being waged against the journal and Séralini by–you guessed it–Monsanto.

The ‘frankenfood’ giant even managed to insert a former company employee in the strategic position of Associate Editor for Biotechnology at the journal, where he worked tirelessly to convince the powers-that-be to pull the story. Two years down the road, Séralini has republished his findings at a different peer-reviewed journal, Environmental Sciences Europe, and he is basking in the glory of vindication on the heels of the latest court ruling in his favor.

So, everyone who insists this crud is safe to eat, please eat all of it you want; intelligent people, who understand the science, will avoid it like the plague, thank you very much.

PABLO ESCOBAR’S HIPPOS KEEP HAVING SEX AND NO ONE IS SURE HOW TO STOP THEM

When drug kingpin Pablo Escobar was killed by the Colombian National Police in 1993, he left a vast and bloody legacy in his wake. The Medellín Cartel boss is regarded as one of the most prolific criminals in history, and is notorious for having built a cocaine-fueled empire on the bodies of thousands of murdered individuals. But El Patrón is also remembered by more than 50 hippopotamuses (Hippopotamus amphibius) that currently roam free near his palatial estate, Hacienda Nápoles. Escobar’s captive hippos were never meant for the rivers and estuaries of northern Colombia, yet since his death they’ve behaved as wild animals are wont to: by vigorously breeding and multiplying, slowly establishing themselves as the largest invasive species in the world.

VA Hospitals Will Continue to Reject Medical Marijuana

Although Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner recently signed a bill into law allowing patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to participate in the state’s medical marijuana program, reports indicate that the brass overseeing Veterans Affairs Hospitals throughout the state will not allow any of its physicians to discuss the herb with patients suffering from this disorder.

Last week, just days after a Cook County Judge ordered the state to include PTSD as a qualified condition under the state’s medical marijuana program, Governor Rauner swooped in and put his signature on a bill, which received overwhelming support this year in the General Assembly, expanding the Illinois medical marijuana pilot program to allow patients with PTSD and terminal illnesses to purchase cannabis from their friendly neighborhood dispensary. Rauner’s signature also guarantees the program will continue to function until at least 2020.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, indeed, a testament to just how firmly the pharmaceutical-industrial complex has their claws firmly gripping the really sensitive areas of the Federal Government's "tender regions".

It's all about the money.

What the Pharmaceutical industry should do is is invest in creating some better pot, to get a decent market share of the business, instead of preventing people desperately in need of the plant's benefits from getting it.

This move, on the part of the VA, is making itself, and Big Pharma look collectively like the nether end of a donkey.

ACLU says US deporting 'untold number' of military veterans

Countless foreign-born US veterans were deported after the federal government failed to assist in their naturalisation process, a new report by the American Civil Liberties Union said.

According to the report, many of the soldiers, whose service dated back to the Vietnam War, were deported after facing charges for minor misdemeanors – which can be deportable offences – and courts were not allowed to consider military service.

“By requiring deportation and stripping immigration courts of the power to consider military service, the United States government abandons these veterans by expelling them to foreign countries at the moment when they most need the government’s help to rehabilitate their lives after service,” Bardis Vakili, a senior staff attorney with the ACLU of California, said in a press release. “This is a tragic and disgraceful example of how broken our immigration system is.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, I can absolutely get on board with.

I hate wars; but our Veterans, no matter where they came from, who have fought in service to the US government deserve the process of naturalisation, and for it to go swiftly and smoothly, particularly those who have volunteered.

Tens of thousands of people every year are sent to jail based on the results of a $2 roadside drug test.

Some tests, including the one the Houston police officers used to analyze the crumb on the floor of Albritton’s car, use a single tube of a chemical called cobalt thiocyanate, which turns blue when it is exposed to cocaine. But cobalt thiocyanate also turns blue when it is exposed to more than 80 other compounds, including methadone, certain acne medications and several common household cleaners. Other tests use three tubes, which the officer can break in a specific order to rule out everything but the drug in question — but if the officer breaks the tubes in the wrong order, that, too, can invalidate the results. The environment can also present problems. Cold weather slows the color development; heat speeds it up, or sometimes prevents a color reaction from taking place at all. Poor lighting on the street — flashing police lights, sun glare, street lamps — often prevents officers from making the fine distinctions that could make the difference between an arrest and a release.

The Blowback Begins: Marine Demands Same Treatment As Hillary

The FBI's decision to recommend that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton has been labeled a double standard of epic proportions, and now the decision will trigger further unintended consequences. A Marine Corps officer who has been locked in a legal battle with his service after self-reporting that he improperly disseminated classified information now intends to demand the same treatment that Hillary received.

2016GOP foreign policy elites flock to Clinton

Two weeks before he hopes to consolidate his party at the Republican convention in Cleveland, Donald Trump is driving Republican foreign policy elites into the arms of Hillary Clinton, as several more Reagan and Bush administration veterans say they not only oppose Trump but will likely vote for Clinton this fall.

Two former senior officials from the George W. Bush administration tell POLITICO that they will cast a ballot for Clinton over Trump. They are Stephen Krasner, a Stanford University professor who served as the State Department's director of policy planning from 2005 to 2007, and David Gordon, a senior advisor at the Eurasia Group who was Krasner’s successor in that post, which

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All this simply proves that Clinton is a US warmonger's, and "Israel Firster's" wet dream, who will wreak havoc on this country, and the world.

And the fact that someone was a Bush administration "advisor" doesn't speak well for their common sense, or judgement, looking at the horrific decisions they made, which have put this country into a state of perpetual war.

And, just for giggles and grins, how many of these people who see Clinton as this country's "savior" have huge investments in the military industrial complex?!?

Full disclosure, guys, let's see it!!

‘Chilling’: US-Backed Syrian Groups’ Human Rights Atrocities Exposed

The Levant Front, the Free Syrian Army’s 16th division, and the Nour al-Din Zanki movement, are named as culprits in the torture, kidnapping and execution of pro-government fighters, journalists and activists.

Philip Luther, director of Amnesty's Middle East program said, "While some civilians in areas controlled by armed opposition groups may, at first, have welcomed an escape from brutal Syrian government rule, hopes that these armed groups would respect rights have faded as they have increasingly taken the law into their own hands and committed serious abuses."

He added that "In Aleppo and Idleb today, armed groups have free rein to commit war crimes and other violations of international humanitarian law with impunity."

The US often touts its vetting process for the foreign organizations it supports, but it appears that Washington often claims that groups are "moderate" when they have been documented as being violent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"War crimes.... who cares?!? In this case, the maiming and assassinations of innocent people doesn't matter to the Obama administration one bit, as long as the end result of regime change in Syria is closer to getting accomplished!" Official White House Spokes slug.

Nancy Pelosi blows off traffic laws — to shop at shoe store!

Local Paul Smith wrote in to the St. Helena Star in June to describe Pelosi’s recent shoe shopping excursion at a fancy boutique, prompting a response from police chief Bill Imboden about the former House Speaker’s special status.

“Last Saturday afternoon (June 4) I’m standing on the west side of Main Street directly across from the Hunt Avenue intersection chatting with friends. Of course, traffic was heavy in both directions,” Smith wrote.

“A large perfectly polished and gleaming black SUV is attempting a left turn from Hunt onto southbound Main (not easy). Suddenly blue/red lights are flashing from the windshield area of the SUV (like you would see in an official fire/police vehicle),” he continued. “I said to my friends, I’ve never seen that before on a ‘regular’ vehicle and I’d think that’s illegal and dangerous. They agreed.”

BREAKING: Lynch’s Bill Clinton Story Falls Apart… These 2 Lies Brought It Down

For the past week, United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch has been playing damage control as a result of her private meeting with former President Bill Clinton in Phoenix, Arizona.

Lynch claimed that the visit was a “social” one and was pure coincidence because Clinton just happened to be in Phoenix to play golf while she was there.

However, mounting evidence suggested that all this was one big fat lie (which is not that surprising). There are two crucial pieces of evidence that Lynch has been lying to the American people.

Philando Castile’s sobbing girlfriend exposes how cops treated her and 4-year-old like criminals

Diamond Reynolds, the woman who streamed the aftermath of her boyfriend’s shooting death at the hands of Minnesota police live on Facebook, said Philando Castile lay dying in the car and no one came to his aid, according to a testimony on Facebook Live.

Reynolds said she posted the video so people would see what happened. She said Castile worked for St. Paul public schools and had just gotten his hair done for his upcoming birthday. The couple had been grocery shopping when they were stopped by an officer for a broken tail light.

Reynolds said Castile was reaching for his wallet to get his identification, as the officer had asked. She also said Castile told the officer he was carrying a gun, which he was licensed to have. She said the officer opened fire on him even though he was not threatening them.

She in turn sobbed and recounted what had happened, and talked about the need to unite to stop police officers from killing innocent people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have just watched this video, and it is, indeed, horrific. You cannot help but feel complete, maddening sympathy for the man who was assassinated by the police, this woman, and her daughter.

If, in fact, this lady's testimony is true, (and it is very difficult to believe, after watching this video, that it is not), then the police who did this should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

But between this, and the assassination of an African American man by the police in Baton Rouge earlier this week, I have to wonder; has the word gone out to assassinate minorities to create race riots, which would give Obama the "justification" to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and perhaps suspend the November elections, if internal White House polls show that Trump is poised to wipe the floor with Clinton?!?

I wouldn't put it past this administration.

A PERIOD OF MAJOR CIVIL UNREST LOOMS – HOW TO WIN AN INEVITABLE CONFRONTATION WITH THE STATUS QUO

To summarize, I think the activist community across American needs to do two things:

1. Stick together. Black, white, rural, urban, we are all in this together. Don’t allow yourselves to become divided — we have the same opponent. Never forget that.

2. Keep things non-violent. If violence happens, always make sure the government fires the first shots. If the general public perceives you to be out there looking for a fight as opposed to reacting to state aggression, you will lose. Think outside the box, be creative and employ non-violent civil disobedience whenever possible.

MINNEAPOLIS: SOMALI 'REFUGEES' TERRORIZE NEIGHBORHOOD, THREATEN TO KIDNAP & RAPE WOMEN

According to a Minneapolis police report, between 20 and 30 young men showed up in front of a woman's house about 9:30 in the morning and "the comments turned to threats."

"They were screaming at the house that they were going to kidnap you and they were going to rape you," one Minneapolis resident told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. "It was a very traumatizing experience."

The report indicates that these young men were driving onto the sidewalk and on the lawn, all while shooting off bottle rockets and screaming.

"It's a scary thought especially for those who have young children," one Minneapolis resident said.

It's worse than they're describing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All these 'refugees' should be placed no further than 20 feet from the private schools attended by the children of all Congressional representatives; this abysmal behaviour should be "their problem", and NOT the problem of the American people, if the vetting process is so lousy!!

Secret Service Officer Calls for Media to Drop Hillary Clinton Pushed Blackout

Exclusive – Secret Service Officer Gary Byrne Calls for Media to Drop Hillary Clinton Pushed Blackout as He Tops NYT Bestseller List Without Them
Retired Secret Service officer Gary Byrne’s explosive tell-all on Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton from his days inside the White House has topped the New York Times bestseller list for the end of June, despite a Clinton-created media blackout.

“I am very grateful to the tens of thousands of Americans who have bought my book and listened to my message,” Byrne said in a statement obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release. “But I would welcome the opportunity to reach a larger audience. Today I urge the mainstream media networks who so far have declined to give a voice to my message and the serious allegations I have raised to reconsider their positions, both in the interest of fairness and out of a sense of obligation to the American public.”

Byrne’s tell-all book, Crisis of Character, has also been the number one nonfiction book on Amazon for about a month as well.>>>

To the laughter of his SWPL audience, Colbert hammed it up and made silly faces as he recounted the violence, corruption, and incompetence as Brazil scrambles to put together the infrastructure needed to host the Summer Games. He noted billions of dollars were sent to companies which are currently being investigated for price fixing and kickbacks. He smirked about Brazil having one of the “highest violent crime rates in the world” and, making sure to trill his r’s for comedic effect, quoted the soccer player Rivaldo telling foreigners to “stay in their country of origin” because “here you will be running the risk of your life.” The meme-ready warning from police to arriving tourists “Welcome to Hell” was also featured. And though Colbert didn’t mention this, body parts recently washed ashore next to one of the key venues for the games.

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

White House Petition - Charge Hillary Rodham Clinton pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 641, 793, 794, 798, 952, and 1924

Secretary of State Clinton was in direct violation of the agreement between her and the United States of American outlined on the Standard Form 312, section 4. She sent classified information outside of a server with the classification needed to keep the information she was sending secure. Her actions have created a major security violation and could potentially be used by enemies of the state. This petition is being used to reverse the FBI decision and have HRC charged with all of the aforementioned charges, along with any others that are outlined in the SF 312.

The U.S. DOT announced last week it’s investigating a fatal Florida crash in which a Tesla Model S — driving in the vehicle’s self-driving Autopilot mode — failed to brake and slammed into the side of a Class 8 tractor-trailer, killing the occupant of the Tesla. Tesla vehicles are all-electric sedans that can operate in semi-autonomous modes in certain situations.

Elie Wiesel: Poseur for Peace

An obvious and oft-sighted criticism of the Nobel Peace Prize is just how many of its recipients have virtually no connection to the cause of peace or its advancement. If anything, often it seems a reward for its negation. Henry Kissinger, recipient in 1973, would have to be the gold standard here. That very year saw Kissinger orchestrate the destruction of democracy in Chile, and that was only after the secret bombing of Cambodia was concluded. Of course, stretch it forward and backward a couple of years and Kissinger’s trail of destruction extends from Bangladesh to East Timor.

Hillary Clinton, the Plutocracy, and the Constitutional Right of Revolution

You’ve really got to be careful when you travel to third world countries. They have these banana republics where they can steal from you, beat you, and lie to you. You might go to jail but the authorities there can literally get away with murder, theft, and deceit. And heaven forbid that you end up in jail there because they are hellholes in which you will likely be beaten, raped, and forced to perform slave labor.

Wow, aren’t you glad it isn’t like that in America? Here in the land of the free, we don’t have to deal with that kind of corruption.

Oh…wait.

If you ever had any doubt that we are living in a plutocracy, the exoneration of Hillary Clinton (ironically, the day after we celebrated our revolution and independence) should be sufficient evidence to assure you that, indeed, we are living in a place in which power is determined by your wealth and your connections to wealthy people.

Hillary Clinton's Extreme Carelessness Sure Seems Like a Federal Felony

Explaining why he decided not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton in connection with her use of an unsecured private email server as secretary of state, FBI Director James Comey contrasts her "extremely careless" handling of "very sensitive, highly classified information" with the "clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information" that has prompted federal prosecution in other cases. But that distinction does not really explain why Comey decided "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case against Clinton, since one of the statutes guiding the FBI's investigation, 18 USC 793, makes it a felony to "mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way" (emphasis added), as Comey himself notes at the beginning of yesterday's statement. Maybe Comey perceives a difference between extreme carelessness and gross negligence, but if so he never bothered to elucidate it.

Snared in web of deceit: FBI Investigation Produces No Indictment, But Proves Hillary Clinton's a Serial Liar

Hillary Clinton may or may not be a crook. That remains to be proven, though the sheer magnitude of the wealth that she and husband Bill have amassed since leaving the White House, and while she was serving as Secretary of State -- nearly a quarter of a billion dollars earned by two people with no known skills capable of producing that kind of income -- should raise questions. What can be stated now as fact though, is that Hillary is a serial liar.

If this wasn't clear already from her long history of distortion and prevarication -- like her false claim that she had to "duck to avoid sniper fire" during a state visit to Bosnia -- it is clear now from FBI Director James Comey's 11-page public report on his agency's year-long investigation into her use of a private server for all her private and official emails during her term as Secretary of State.

Hillary, email free pass, Benghazi

Little-known fact: Hillary Clinton is a Quantum Physics genius with a specialty in Time Manipulation.

We’ll get to that in a minute. But first, FBI Director Comey’s absurd exoneration of Hillary in the email scandal. The law states, of course, that gross negligence in handling and transmitting classified materials is enough to warrant prosecution for a crime, and it can carry up to ten years in prison. (Federal Penal Code, Title 18, section 793[f].) The quality of the intent behind the negligence has nothing to do with the law. Good intent, bad intent, neutral intent. All irrelevant. Comey knows that.

His statement about the diligent and exceptional investigation by his people at the Bureau is fluff and window dressing. It all came down to his recommendation to his boss, the Attorney General. And there Comey revealed his own intent:

Hillary is too big to fail.

She was grossly negligent. The FBI confirmed that.

Bombings in Saudi Arabia Mark Another ISIS Escalation

While Western officials continue to present ISIS as a shrinking threat, the faction continues to expand worldwide, launching several major attacks across the world over the past week. The least deadly attacks, ironically, might be among the most significant.

Over the weekend, three coordinated bombings were carried out in Saudi Arabia, hitting Qatif, Jeddah, and Medina. The attacks killed a total of four people, tiny compared to attacks in Dhaka, Istanbul, and especially Baghdad in recent days.

This is different though, because this is Saudi Arabia. Though ISIS has recruited and sought funding in the Kingdom, but attacks have been pretty rare. The Medina attack, targeting a hugely important mosque in one of Islam’s holiest cities, represents a major escalation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the House of Saud: if ISIS is funded and trained courtesy of the US government, what the heck is it doing in Saudi Arabia?!?

You had better have a very long talk with Ambassador Joseph Westphal about this.

More often than not, the countries of the Middle East have found the US government more of a "frenemy" than a true ally, in its pursuit of its own geopolitical goals.

Bracken: Coward Comey Takes a Dive

The FBI today officially becoming a willing Soviet-Stasi stooge and tool, even if under duress, brings home how fast things can change in a volatile political environment. I judge 2016 as being as dangerous as 1860 or 1913. In European terms, a “Night of Long Knives” is now not an impossibility. Fast and Furious (300+ dead, no repercussions, media holding) emboldened them to betray Benghazi station, to write it off and lie about it, (no repercussions, media holding). Now the perception, real or imagined, is that even the FBI has been forced to toe the party line.

Replaceable fingerprint identity

This product is a fingerprint substitute. It acts similarly to a band-aid for fingerprints. Contrary to the biological fingerprints you already have, it is fully replaceable and disposable. You could have a new fingerprint everyday either as a replacement for the fingerprints that have been stolen, or simply to prevent potential theft. They are unique and even harder to copy than real fingerprints.

Bill Whittles Response To The FBI's Decision Regarding the Queen

Well, I’ve been saying for a year now that if charges are not brought against Hillary Clinton then we no longer are a nation of laws. Today we received that confirmation.

From the earliest days of Eject! Eject! Eject! I have made it my personal policy to be as open as I can possibly be with you patriots who have honored me so much in the past. So here is the honest truth:

When I heard the news about Hillary Clinton this morning I was just numb. I had wondered whether or not the Justice Department would prosecute the case, but I had NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that the FBI under James Comey would recommend criminal charges against this outrageous breach of law and national security.

'So Discouraging': Giuliani Says Comey Made 'Special Exception for the Clintons'

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani explained this afternoon why FBI Director James Comey made a "special exception" in recommending no charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.

Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney who worked with Comey, said that Clinton violated federal statute 18 U.S.C., section 793-F by mishandling classified information on her unsecured server.

Russia gathers troops at Baltic military bases ahead of Cold War-style stand-off with Nato

Russia is assembling military forces in eastern Europe as it draws closer to a potential Cold War-style standoff with NATO in the Baltic states.

The Russian military has been mobilising troops, trucks and equipment to various bases around Kaliningrad, a crucial outpost between Poland and Lithuania, as well as sites further inland according to Reuters.

Servicemen have been seen working to increase security at important bases and further military radar systems are being constructed, in addition to Russia’s rumoured preparation of new missiles and anti-aircraft systems at Kaliningrad.

Russia says it believes its borders are under threat as NATO forces draw closer, with the increase in military activity likely to be a key talking point when NATO member states meet in Warsaw on July 8.

According to NATO strategists, Russia is layering surface-to-air missiles in Kaliningrad in an effort to block off NATO'S air access to the three Baltic states and areas of Poland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT "Russian aggression", when for months NATO has been building up caches of weapons, and adding troops, or rotating more troops into Eastern Europe?!?!?

Let's look at a map:

map of Kalinigrad and surrounding countries

Kaliningrad is the most westerly exclave of Russia, surrounded by Poland; Lithuania, and the Baltic Sea. The three Baltic states NATO claims Russia is after are Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia. Poland is crying foul at this buildup in Kaliningrad, but NATO members and beyond can only blame themselves for refusing to ratchet down tensions through reasonable, good faith negotiations with the Russian government.

But I am almost willing to bet one whole US cent on the following; the US and NATO are doing everything humanly possible to provoke a military response from Russia; and if Russia won't give it to them, look for some kind of a false flag to be blamed on Russia, and off we go.

TRADE DEFICIT WIDENS MORE THAN EXPECTED: EXPORTS WEAKEN, IMPORTS RISE

The US trade deficit with the rest of the world worsened in May to $-41.1 billion from $-37.4 billion.

Exports declined and imports rose. The latter primarily due to rising crude prices.

Contraction in capital goods exports shows declining global demand.

The May trade deficit was worse than the Bloomberg Econoday consensus estimate was $-40.0 billion and outside the entire range of $-40.5 billion to $-38.4 billion.

The US no longer produces products that the world wants to buy; and our GMO foods are avoided like the plague, when they can be avoided.

The global economy appears to be choking up completely.

WORLD'S BIGGEST ASSET MANAGER DOWNGRADES EUROPEAN BANKS TO SELL, EXPECTS GLOBAL SLOWDOWN

Exactly one month ago we reported that BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, had downgraded global equities to Neutral, saying "U.S. valuations are elevated." The chief catalyst for that call was BlackRock's assumption that a summer Fed rate hike was imminent, something which now is assured won't happen for years. So overnight BlackRock shifted its attention, and this time sees Brexit as the downside catalyst du jour, one which for Blackrock is enough to cause it to trim its global growth expectations, as it now expects "a modest slowdown over the next 12 months."

More importantly, Blackrock also notes that since "there’s limited scope for monetary policy to reflate the global economy, however, and much-needed fiscal stimulus and structural reform progress looks unlikely over the coming months" it has in response "downgraded European stocks to underweight, with a negative view of the eurozone banking sector."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Italian banks are flailing; Deutsche Bank was unable to pass the last Federal Stress Test; and once the floodgates of contagion are open, in the banking community, it is hard to see how the damage can be contained, once it starts.

WHY THE WAR ON DRUGS IS A HUGE FAILURE

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The war on drugs has been an epic fail because it has been engineered to fail.

The little country of Portugal has been an absolute trail-blazer on this issue.

What they did was completely decririminalise small amounts of drugs for personal use, then urge counseling to get off the drugs; that approach worked, and continues to work today. Fewer kids are getting hooked, and it's all good.

Of course the intelligent, rational thing to do would be to decririminalise all drugs, and make them available by prescription, taking the profit motive out of the equation.

Of course, THAT...would be logical.

Washington Has Been Obsessed With Punishing Secrecy Violations — until Hillary Clinton

People who leak to media outlets for the selfless purpose of informing the public – Daniel Ellsberg, Tom Drake, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden – face decades in prison. Those who leak for more ignoble and self-serving ends – such as enabling hagiography (Leon Panetta, David Petreaus) or ingratiating oneself to one’s mistress (Petraeus) – face career destruction, though they are usually spared if they are sufficiently Important-in-DC. For low-level, powerless Nobodies-in-DC, even the mere mishandling of classified information – without any intent to leak but merely to, say, work from home – has resulted in criminal prosecution, career destruction and the permanent loss of security clearance.

This extreme, unforgiving, unreasonable, excessive posture toward classified information came to an instant halt in Washington today – just in time to save Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations.

Want to know why two-thirds of Americans do not consider Hillary Clinton trustworthy? Re-watch pretty much any public comment she’s made about her email use over the past 16 months and then watch James Comey’s speech yesterday.

The FBI director shredded so many of the talking points that the former Secretary of State and her top aides have used over and over again throughout this scandal, including that she never emailed classified material; that information in the emails was classified retroactively; that none of the emails were marked as containing classified information; that there were definitively no security breaches; that she turned over all work-related emails to the State Department; that the set-up was driven by convenience; and that the government was merely conducting “a security review.”

In February, the billionaire businessman said he expected Clinton to get away with her use of private email servers while the top State official, but as president, he would look in to prosecuting Clinton.

For Hillary Clinton’s Campaign, “Extremely Careless” Is a Soundbite to Celebrate

WHEN HILLARY CLINTON first acknowledged in March 2015 that she had indeed used a private email account — and her own server — to conduct official government business as secretary of state, it would have been hard to imagine that her campaign would 16 months later pronounce itself “pleased” that an FBI investigation concluded that she and her aides “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

Hillary Clinton on the Sanctity of Protecting Classified Information

In December 2011, Chelsea Manning’s court-martial was set to begin. None of the documents at issue in that prosecution was “top secret,” unlike the documents found on Hillary Clinton’s server. Nonetheless, the then-secretary of state convened a press conference to denounce Manning and defend the prosecution. This is what she said:

If his case goes to trial and he is convicted, Manning could face life in prison. The government has said it would not seek the death penalty.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Manning’s alleged actions damaging and unfortunate in remarks to reporters at the State Department on Thursday.

“I think that in an age where so much information is flying through cyberspace, we all have to be aware of the fact that some information which is sensitive, which does affect the security of individuals and relationships, deserves to be protected and we will continue to take necessary steps to do so,” Clinton said.

A Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey – taken last night - finds that 37% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the FBI’s decision. But 54% disagree and believe the FBI should have sought a criminal indictment of Clinton. Ten percent (10%) are undecided.

Sixty-four percent (64%) of Democrats agree with Comey’s decision not to seek an indictment of their party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans, 63% of voters not affiliated with either major political party and 25% of Democrats disagree with the decision.

Martin Armstrong: "James Comey Had No Problem Keeping Me In Prison Without Any Charges"

To indict someone, the criteria is supposed to be “intent.” Comey has used that to pretend there is no evidence that Hillary “intentionally” erased anything. Comey also stated that Hillary’s lawyers erased her emails using a keyword search program and they did not “read” the emails. He added that he would not recommend charges against Hillary or her aides.

“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” Comey declared.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Comey is trying to justify not recommending prosecution because he has no evidence of intent to do wrong by Hillary. But Title 18 does not require intent. One can (and should) be prosecuted for exposing national secrets through carelessness and negligence, which Comey says Hillary did!

FBI Director James Comey stood before the nation and issued a list of Hillary Clinton’s astounding wrongdoings Tuesday as regards America’s national security — and then said he was not recommending
prosecution because, in essence, what Mrs. Clinton did was “extremely careless” but not criminal.

As he spoke, I recalled F. Scott Fitzgerald’s peerless description in “The Great Gatsby” of a feckless wealthy couple: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into . . . their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

AP FACT CHECK: Clinton email claims collapse under FBI probe

The agency's yearlong investigation found that she did not, as she claimed, turn over all her work-related messages for release. It found that her private email server did carry classified emails, also contrary to her past statements. And it made clear that Clinton used many devices to send and receive email despite her statements that she set up her email system so that she only needed to carry one.

FBI Director James Comey's announcement Tuesday that he will not refer criminal charges to the Justice Department against Clinton spared her from prosecution and a devastating political predicament. But it left much of her account in tatters and may have aggravated questions of trust swirling around her Democratic presidential candidacy.
