It’s harder for Clinton supporters to respect Trump backers than vice versa

Given the rancorous tone and often highly personal nature of this year’s presidential campaign, supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump might be expected to hold similarly negative views of one another. But a new Pew Research Center survey finds that Clinton backers – particularly highly educated ones – have more difficulty respecting Trump supporters than the other way around.

HACKER CLAIMS TO TAKE DOWN RUSSIAN BANK WEBSITES ON ELECTION DAY

On Tuesday, a hacker calling himself vimproducts showed Motherboard a selection of Russian banking and other financial websites, before claiming to take them offline. Those sites included the Moscow Exchange, the Bank of Moscow, Rosbank, and Alfa-Bank. One by one, vimproducts sent Motherboard a link to the site which was fully functional. Moments later, they became either unresponsive or went offline. At the time of writing, three out of four all still inaccessible, about an hour after vimproducts claimed he started his DDoS attacks.

India’s crackdown in Kashmir: is this the world’s first mass blinding?

For the past month, while the attention of the world has been fixed on every dramatic twist in the US presidential election, the renewal of armed conflict between India and Pakistan has barely touched the headlines. In the past few weeks, the two nuclear states have, between them, killed two dozen civilians and injured scores of others in exchanges of artillery fire across the disputed border – known as the “line of control” – that divides Kashmir into parts controlled by India and Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This use of blinding pellets by the Indian military makes me utterly ill.

I think that the Kashmiris, cheated of the referendum to decide whether they want to stay with India; join Pakistan; or become independent, may come to the point of choosing civil war here, because there is absolutely no reasonable alternative left to them by the Indian government, and that is a crying shame.

US not liberating Raqqa… it’s protecting jihadi proxies in Syria

With typical fanfare, Western news media announced the launch this week of a US-backed offensive to retake the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa from the Islamic State (Daesh) terror group.
Trends
Syria unrest
Officially, the US is providing air support, as well as “assisting and training” by special forces to the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are spearheading the offensive on the Daesh stronghold. The SDF comprise about 30,000 local fighters, 20,000 of whom are Kurdish and the rest Sunni Arab militants.

It is also reported that British and French warplanes are involved in the US-led coalition operation to take Raqqa.

Hillary’s World: How Clinton’s Foreign Policy Has Destabilized Nearly Every Corner of the Globe

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton – as senator, secretary of state, and active partner in the Clinton Foundation – has had the privilege of influencing major players in governments across the globe.

The result of her efforts has largely been the unfettered consolidation of autocratic power, instability (when not total collapse) in vulnerable states, and a global jihadist movement with its own Caliphate infiltrating some of the world’s most strategic locations.

ANOTHER U.S. MASSACRE IN AFGHANISTAN

The latest massacre of many innocent people by U.S. forces in Afghanistan provides another demonstration as to why it is imperative that the American people stop deferring to the authority of the national security state and demand the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

In a war that has now gone on for 16 years, U.S. forces just killed at least 32 more civilians, many of whom were children. Another 25 people were wounded. Of course, this is on top of all the wedding parties, hospitals, and other victims of U.S. bombing attacks that have brought the death toll from U.S. interventionism in Afghanistan to more than 200,000, not to mention the wounded, maimed, homeless, and refugees. In the last seven days alone, 95 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan and 111 injured.

How many of those 30 people, including the children, who are now being buried had anything to do with the 9/11 attacks? It is a virtual certainty that none of them did.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country murders innocents abroad with impunity, for economic goals, and then some supremely dim Americans wonder why foreign countries don't particularly like us.

It's the murders, stupid!!

But were I a betting woman, I would be willing to bet that the US will NEVER leave Afghanistan.

And why?!?

Because of the massive profit in the opium trade, which various US "alphabet soup" agencies love to use for off-the-books operations they could never get funded by Congress. As reported this October at thefiscaltimes.com:

America is losing a war in Afghanistan, and the casualties are on the streets at home. With a heroin epidemic killing more than 10,000 Americans a year, a new UN report says the production of opium – the raw material of heroin – is up 43 percent in 2016 in Afghanistan.

But you have to understand; the US government is losing the war on drugs on purpose.

As reported at americanfreepress.com in March of 2014:

Across the U.S., heroin use has skyrocketed. But how are these drugs getting into the country, and is the CIA back to its old tricks, using drugs money to fund covert operations? By Victor Thorn — The tragic overdose death of Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on February 2, brought renewed interest to the subject of cheap heroin on America’s streets. Across the country, heroin use is on the rise, despite the billions of dollars spent by United States law enforcement fighting it. Recently, southwestern Pennsylvania suffered 22 overdoses in little more than a week’s time from tainted heroin, and dozens of users were hospitalized in Camden, New Jersey due to a highly potent batch that was being sold on the streets of that city. One of the big questions asked by naïve media talking heads is: Where does all of this heroin come from? The answer is the same as it was a decade ago following a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-led invasion of Afghanistan: 75%-80% of the world’s heroin is exported from Afghanistan. In spite of the fact that the U.S. military controls a great deal of that mountainous country, production levels hit record highs last year. Since American forces have been entrenched in Afghanistan for a dozen years and have squandered over $700B to date, AMERICAN FREE PRESS has long been one of the few publications to openly address a highly taboo subject. Namely, elements within the CIA having been heavily involved with illegal narcotics trafficking since the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s and Iran-Contra in the 1980s. On March 13, this reporter contacted investigative historian Robert Morrow, whose research into the murder of CIA-sanctioned pilot Barry Seal is unparalleled. Seal claims to have run drugs for U.S. intelligence. When asked about official criminality associated with Afghan’s opium business, Morrow replied: “U.S. government involvement in the drug trade ebbs and flows depending on a particular administration’s level of corruption. If a Bush or Clinton is in office, you better believe it’s rip-roaring.” Morrow provided more insights. “Or, maybe their complicity is so institutionalized that presidents don’t even control it. Intelligence agencies and the military do. The government has many faces. One DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] agent could be entirely honest while another is on the take from drug cartels and the government.” Delving into deep state secrets, Morrow stressed: “The people who ran all the drugs into America during the Iran-Contra era were George Bush, Sr., CIA Director William Casey, Oliver North and both Clintons. Airports like the one in Mena, Arkansas that Bill and Hillary operated stretched all across the southern U.S. You need to remember that Barry Seal [who allegedly flew more cocaine into America than any pilot in history] was personal friends with Bill Clinton. He also spoke with Bush, Sr. on a weekly basis.” Morrow turned his attention to Clinton’s partner-in-crime. “As Vice President, George Bush, Sr. had all aspects of law enforcement answering to him,” said Murrow. “That way, legitimate police officers weren’t arresting his CIA drug dealers.” Ending on a riveting note, Morrow said: “These topics aren’t expressed in the mainstream media because it would be detrimental to the government’s credibility. Nobody is supposed to know that certain elements running our country are drug dealers, murderers and thugs.”

So the reality in the US is that the biggest drug deal in the country...IS THE COUNTRY!!

Defense Secretary: US ‘Can’t Wait Any Longer’ to Buy New Nukes: Says US Needs to Make Up for 'Decades of Under-investment'

Defense Secretary Ash Carter, delivering a speech at Strategic Command headquarters, has ratcheted up ongoing Pentagon calls for massive spending increases, particularly on the creation of new modern nuclear weapons, claiming the current arsenal is becoming “antiquated.”

Carter rattled off a list of potential nuclear “foes,” including Russia, China, North Korea, India, Pakistan, and Iran, insisting that while the US had “under-invested” in nuclear arms all those nations “consistently invested” in such weapons.

The Pentagon has been talking up this modernization scheme for years, and the estimated price tag has continued to rise precipitously throughout, with the plan likely to be well in excess of $1 trillion when all is said and done. Carter, like other Pentagon officials, mostly ignored the cost in his comments, insisting the program is vital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in thenation.com one year ago last September:

 Start with this simple fact: the production, maintenance, and modernization of nuclear weapons are sources of super profits for what is, in essence, a cartel. They, of course, encounter no competition for contracts from offshore competitors, given that it’s the US nuclear arsenal we’re talking about, and the government contracts offered are screened from critical auditing under the guise of national security. Furthermore, the business model employed is “cost-plus,” which means that no matter how high cost overruns may be compared to original bids, contractors receive a guaranteed profit percentage above their costs. High profits are effectively guaranteed, no matter how inefficient or over-budget the project may become. In other words, there is no possibility of contractors losing money on their work, no matter how inefficient they may be (a far cry from a corporate free-market model of production). Those well-protected profits and the firms raking them in have become a major factor in the promotion of nuclear weapons development, undermining any efforts at nuclear disarmament of almost any sort. Part of this process should be familiar indeed, since it’s an extension of a classic Pentagon formula that Columbia University industrial economist Seymour Melman once described so strikingly in his books and articles, a formula that infamously produced $436 hammers and $6,322 coffee makers. Given the process and the profits, the weapons contractors have a vested interest in ensuring that the American public has a heightened sense of danger and insecurity (even as they themselves have become a leading source of such danger and insecurity). Recently, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) produced a striking report, “Don’t Bank on the Bomb,” documenting the major corporate contractors and their investors who will reap those mega-profits from the coming nuclear weapons upgrades. Given the penumbra of national security that envelops the country’s nuclear weapons programs, authentic audits of the contracts of these companies are not available to the public. However, at least the major corporations profiting from nuclear weapons contracts can now be identified. In the area of nuclear delivery systems—bombers, missiles, and submarines—these include a series of familiar corporate names: Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, GenCorp Aerojet, Huntington Ingalls, and Lockheed Martin. In other areas like nuclear design and production, the names at the top of the list will be less well known: Babcock & Wilcox, Bechtel, Honeywell International, and URS Corporation. When it comes to nuclear weapons testing and maintenance, contractors include Aecom, Flour, Jacobs Engineering, and SAIC; missile targeting and guidance firms include Alliant Techsystems and Rockwell Collins. To give a small sampling of the contracts: In 2014, Babcock & Wilcox was awarded $76.8 million for work on upgrading the Ohio class submarines. In January 2013, General Dynamics Electric Boat Division was awarded a $4.6 billion contract to design and develop a next-generation strategic deterrent submarine. More of what is known of such corporate weapons contracts can be found in the ICAN Report, which also identified banks and other financial institutions investing in the nuclear weapons corporations. Many Americans are unaware that much of the responsibility for nuclear weapons development, production, and maintenance lies not with the Pentagon but the Department of Energy (DOE), which spends more on nuclear weapons than it does on developing sustainable energy sources.

The process, as it stands now, for American nuclear weapons procurement, is dangerous for our men and women in uniform, because there is no real oversight, on either quality, or costs.

And if the US government had any clue as to the power of true, honest diplomacy, these weapons would never be used, period, end of discussion.

British detectives release efits of Madeleine McCann suspect

Police have issued two efits that they believe are descriptions of the same man, who is now being sought as a priority by the British detectives leading the new McCann inquiry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These two images are being associated with the Podesta brothers, but as this report indicates, the two sketches are supposedly of the same individual, not two men. While deviance among the elites is hardly unusual, I urge caution that this Satan/Spirit Cooking/McCann issue is being used to either distract from the latest WikiLeaks dump, "Kookify" the net, or worse, is a setup to justify the closing down of the independent media by means of a defamation lawsuit!

Erdogan blasts West as Turkey's Kurdish party boycotts parliament

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan accused Europe on Sunday of abetting terrorism by supporting Kurdish militants and said he did not care if it called him a dictator.

Turkey drew international condemnation for the arrest on Friday of leaders and lawmakers from the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), the second-largest opposition grouping in parliament, as part of a terrorism investigation.

The government accuses the HDP, which made history last year by becoming the first Kurdish party to win 10 percent of the vote and enter parliament, of financing and supporting an armed Kurdish insurgency, which it denies.

The HDP announced a partial boycott of parliament on Sunday, saying it was "halting its legislative efforts" and that its deputies would stop participating in sessions of the legislature or meetings of parliamentary commissions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the serial Turkish genocide of Kurds.... doesn't matter?!?

These people are "irrelevant"?!?

Erdogan may well not care if people call him a dictator or not; but unless he resolves the issue of the Kurdish presence in Turkey in a peaceful, inclusive way, he is asking for a civil war.

There is no "democracy" in Turkey at this point; and NATO members had better damned well get their collective heads around that reality, and right now.

Leaked Documents Reveal Expansive Soros Funding to Manipulate Federal Elections

Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported.

The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

George Soros is one of the most devious, dangerous billionaires of the 21st century, and should not ever be allowed any traction in American politics.

People with his level of wealth believe that they have some kind of divine right to "nation build" and "nation tinker-with, when they absolutely do not.

And because of that, I would suggest that every single illegal immigrant in the US be immediately (gently, safely) dropped on a George Soros property, somewhere on the planet; I really think it is time for him to become "culturally enriched",as have so many in Europe,courtesy in large part to his behind the scenes work there.

Oh, and a little factoid about Soros you might not know: as reported at zerohedge.com in July of this year:

How George Soros Singlehandedly Created the European Refugee Crisis - And Why George Soros is trading again. The 85-year-old political activist and philanthropist hit the headlines post-Brexit saying the event had “unleashed” a financial-market crisis. Well, the crisis hasn’t hit Soros just yet. He was once again on the right side of the trade, taking a short position in troubled Deutsche Bank and betting against the S&P via a 2.1-million-share put option on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF. More interestingly, Soros recently took out a $264 million position in Barrick Gold, whose share price has jumped over 14% since Brexit. Along with this trade, Soros has sold his positions in many of his traditional holdings. “Humanitarian” Efforts Today, Soros’s net worth stands at $23 billion. Since taking a back seat in his company, Soros Fund Management, in 2000, Soros has been focusing on his philanthropic efforts, which he carries out through the Open Society Foundations he founded in 1993. So who does he donate to, and what causes does he support? During the 1980s and 1990s, Soros used his extraordinary wealth to bankroll and fund revolutions in dozens of European nations, including Czechoslovakia, Croatia, and Yugoslavia. He achieved this by funneling money to political opposition parties, publishing houses, and independent media in these nations. If you wonder why Soros meddled in these nations’ affairs, part of the answer may lie in the fact that during and after the chaos, he invested heavily in assets in each of the respective countries. He then used Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs to advise the fledgling governments to privatize all public assets immediately, thus allowing Soros to sell the assets he had acquired during the turmoil into newly formed open markets. Having succeeded in advancing his agenda in Europe through regime change—and profiting in the process—he soon turned his attention to the big stage, the United States.

Now you know why Soros is such a Clintonista; he is hoping the same methods he has used abroad...will be allowed to happen here in the US.

4 Year Proposition? - Next President Has To Contend With Obama's Massive Debt Burden At "Epic Turning Point"

Whoever wins the 2016 presidential election tomorrow night could be in for a rough 4 years in the White House courtesy of the gigantic debt burden amassed by Obama over the previous 8 years. While an accommodative monetary policy, including seemingly unlimited treasury buying by the Fed and foreign governments, has suppressed the budget impact of Obama's ballooning federal debt balance, as Ed Yardeni told Bloomberg, "one shudders to think what would happen if rates actually ever did go back to normal.”

“We’ve really got ourselves into a pickle here,” said Edward Yardeni, president of Yardeni Research Inc. in New York, who’s been following the bond market since the 1970s. “All these years we’ve been kicking the can down the road, and suddenly we’re seeing a brick wall.”

Podesta Email Exposes Ariana Huffington "Using Huffpo To Echo Hillary's Message Without Any Perceived Conflicts"

A few months ago we wrote about a Huffington Post contributor, David Seaman, who had his publishing rights revoked after he had the audacity to write an article questioning Hillary's health. Ironically, he was fired on August 30th, less than two weeks before Hillary collapsed at the 9/11 memorial service in New York essentially confirming every "conspiracy theory" that Seaman mentioned in his article. Of course, the whole situation was bizarre and an obvious attempt to censor a journalist for daring to report negative news about the Huffington Post's chosen candidate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Huffington has always been a hard-core Clintonista, and one does not get, in the process of reading her blog, that the people who have gotten well and truly screwed over financially during the last 16 years, to the point of their fortunes being past the point of no return, are of any value or relevance, in the greater scheme of things.

But then again, people with a net worth of 50 million dollars tend to think differently than the rest of us.

But the fact that she can look at the Wikileaks dumps about "pay for play", realizing that as Secretary of State, Clinton made it possible for foreign and domestic policies to be, in essence, sold to the highest bidder, like a commodity, to either corporations or nation-states, and this sordid process does not give her any degree of moral pause about her candidate of choice?!?

One has to wonder.

12 and 63-minute videos: Donald Trump connects to false flag targeting Muslims. Did you really think our ‘masters’ offer anything other than false choice between Left and Right arms of a .01% US rogue state?

John Hankey’s documentary of the assassination of President Kennedy is the single most favorite of my US History students among ~100 film clips I show as a National Board Certified Teacher (shown below). John is a retired Advanced Placement US History teacher, and the best documentary I've found on that game-changing history revealing the US rogue state.

The first 27 minutes document that the Orlando “shooting” included concocted rhetoric to promote fear of so-called “radical Muslims.”
This connects to FBI Director James Comey, who refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton for obvious crimes of secret State Department communications hiding Clinton Foundation looting in the billions, then attempting to destroy the e-mail evidence.

Prominent Catholic Priest Supports Trump for President over "The Evil" Hillary

Fr. George W. Rutler writes, "It is incorrect to say that the coming election poses a choice between two evils. For ethical and aesthetic reasons, there may be some bad in certain candidates, but badness consists in doing bad things. Evil is different: it is the deliberate destruction of truth, virtue and holiness... While the evils foreseen eight years ago were realized, worse would come if those affronts to human dignity were endorsed again. In the most adverse prospect, God forbid, there might not be another free election."

Something is in the air in Jerusalem and if Israel has its way it soon won’t be; the Muslim call to prayer — the adhaan — is under threat.

Militia Prepping For Post-Election Civil Unrest: “Last Chance To Save America From Ruin” - Mac Slavo

What will happen on election day? Will there be riots, violence or attacks if the results appear to be dubious, or any number of divisive groups take to the streets? What if the election triggers an economic collapse?

The implication that militia members would incite violence or start a civil war is false and misleading, but the level of tension surrounding this hugely controversial election hold the perfect recipe for chaos. And if there is some event, the causes and provocations won’t be settled until well after the fact.

America is facing its darkest days, and the people are fed up with the criminality and corruption that controls the corporate and political sphere. Now, it appears that the bankers and powers that be are poised to use this divisive atmosphere to fuel a new era of instability. While things come unglued, those in power cross the line and take up even more power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama would love nothing more than the opportunity to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, replacing them, at least regionally, with martial law; please do not give him that opportunity.

Remember; the smelly, unkempt guy or gal advocating violence is most probably an agent/provocateur from one of the US's "alphabet soup" agencies; don't listen to them!!

"I Just Lost All Faith In Our Deeply Corrupt Legal System And In The Rule Of Law In The US"

The FBI just gave Hillary Clinton the biggest gift in the history of presidential politics. Two days before the election the FBI has announced that they are ending their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information. After reviewing the emails that were found on electronic devices owned by Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress telling them that “we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.” That means that there will be no indictment, and the path is now clear for Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States on Tuesday unless an election miracle happens.

These days it is unusual for a news story to hit me on a deeply emotional level, but this one sure did. When the FBI originally announced that they were renewing this investigation, it gave me a glimmer of hope that there may be a little bit of integrity left in our legal system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should Hillary Clinton steal/win the election, I will still be a Christian pacifist activist.

I will continue to advocate for peaceful, good-faith negotiations by the US government for our international disputes, and the use of intelligent pragmatism for the resolutions of the many problems here at home.

I know these steps by the US government will probably not happen until the US experiences some terrible catastrophe, like the the complete collapse of the US economy, or the loss of a major world war under Clinton's watch, but perhaps at that point, people in this country will wake up to the reality that all wars are bankers' wars, and all wars are economic in nature. Perhaps, at that point, when they have had enough lies, and seen the resulting carnage, they will think differently, and demand a better quality of candidate; candidates truly chosen by the American people, not corporations and nation-states, like Israel; candidates with a true moral compass.

Even though corruption is rampant at the very top levels of American government, and utter lawlessness is now, for all practical intents and purposes, the law of the land in the United States, I refuse to completely lose hope.

I know that this may be a completely Quixotic mission, but it is that hope which lifts humankind up, when it feels absolutely beaten into the dust, and gives it a reason to try again to support that which is honest, right, fair, and true.

Increased Poverty in 96% of U.S. House Districts, During Obama’s Presidency

On November 3rd, Morning Consult’s Jon Reid bannered, “Poverty on the Rise in Nearly All House Districts” and he reported that, “A Brookings Institution study, released less than a week before the election, shows that the number of people living in poverty has increased in 96 percent of congressional districts between 2000 and 2010-2014.”

That finding fits along with others, such as that the economic ‘recovery’ after Barack Obama came into the White House in 2009, went virtually entirely to the very rich.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Expect the numbers to worsen, for poor and middle class Americans, under a Clinton Presidency.

NATO puts 300,000 troops on ‘HIGH ALERT’ amid fears of all out confrontation with Russia

Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, said the allied nations are putting hundreds of thousands of troops in a state of high alert in an effort to deter a mounting threat from Moscow.

While NATO cut its defence budget and military investment since the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia has been bolstering its military capabilities, holding parades involving more than 100,000 troops each year.

Mr Stoltenberg said: “We have seen Russia being much more active in many different ways.

“We have seen a more assertive Russia implementing a substantial military build-up over many years; tripling defence spending since 2000 in real terms; developing new military capabilities; exercising their forces and using military force against neighbours.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, if you are plunging into an absolutely reckless war posture, and beginning World War III in the process, can you AT LEAST, please, give the world some specifics about why this is necessary NOW?!?!?

The short answer is that you cannot, because you have none!!!

Russia is not the problem here; NATO'S, and the US's deployment of troops and weapons, encircling Russia, is the problem.

And please, don't whine and moan about Russia's evolving military hardware and software, because NATO's equipment cannot match it; find your supply chain problem, and get it fixed!!

In other articles I have read on this, the goal is to be able to get this 300,000-strong troop mobilised in 60 days.


60 days from now is right before the inauguration of the next US President.

I find it impossible to believe that the timing here is accidental; it is either to give Clinton the war against Russia after which she lusts so badly, or "gift" Donald Trump with a war which will be horrifically difficult to stop, once it gets going.

Lives in ruins: the human tragedy unfolding in Gaza

A 2015 UN report found that Israel struck seven sites designated as civilian shelters in the 2014 Gaza war, killing 44 Palestinians and injuring 227. No Israelis have been charged for these incidents, or any attacks, during the war.

Beit Hanoun was particularly badly hit in the 2014 conflict and 70 per cent of its housing became uninhabitable. Today, sand, rubbish and discarded clothes remain strewn across the ground but the UAE, Qatar and the Maldives have funded some reconstruction. The Kafarnah family, like many I meet, live in shoddy caravans that are bitterly cold in the winter and extremely hot in summer.

The UN provides the bare minimum of oil, milk and wheat flour every three months, while the ruling Hamas government distributes a small amount of cash every quarter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government continues to support and enable Israel's serial genocide against the Palestinian people, whose only crimes are continuing to breathe, and not forgetting their history before the Balfour Declaration.

And how does the US government "reward" Israel for this policy?!?

US to give record $38 billion in military aid to Israel over 10 years

And what does Israel's current Defense Minister say about the coming Israel conflict with Gaza?!?

Israeli Defense Minister says next Gaza war will be the last ‘because we will completely destroy them’ - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2016/10/israeli-minister-completely/#sthash.V530V1MC.dpuf

How completely comforting it is to know that the US, through its military largesse to Israel, will be aiding and abetting its coming complete genocide of the Palestinian people!!!

And some Americans cannot understand why countries in the Middle East "...don't trust the US government"?!?

I have one word for those people: that word is GAZA.

JANET RENO, FORMER US ATTORNEY GENERAL, HAS DIED

Janet Reno, the first woman to serve as U.S. attorney general and the epicenter of several political storms during the Clinton administration, including the seizure of Elian Gonzalez, died early Monday. She was 78. According to AP, Reno died from complications of Parkinson's disease.

Reno, a former Miami prosecutor who famously told reporters "I don't do spin," served nearly eight years as attorney general under President Bill Clinton, the longest stint in a century. One of the administration's most recognizable and polarizing figures, Reno faced criticism early in her tenure for the deadly raid on the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas, where sect leader David Koresh and some 80 followers perished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For what this woman did to the Branch Davidians at Waco, may God have mercy on her soul.

AMERICA'S RULING ELITE HAS FAILED AND DESERVES TO BE FIRED

The sole output of America's Establishment/Ruling Elite is self-serving hubris.

America's Ruling Elite is freaking out because a significant percentage of the American public is trying to fire them. The Ruling Elite has failed and deserves to be fired, and deep down, they know it--and this awareness of their self-serving failure fuels their panic and their loathing of the non-elite Americans who are trying to fire them.

If you think this chart of soaring student loan debt is a sign of "success," you are 1) delusional 2) protected from the dire consequences of this failure 3) getting your paycheck from this failed system. That in a nutshell is the state of the nation: those who are protected from the consequences of failure are loyal to the Establishment, as are the millions drawing a paycheck from systems they know are irredeemable failures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These one percenters have overturned this nation, making it no longer the United States of America, but the United States of Anxiety, where the jobs which used to be the bedrock of this nation's middle class have been offshored/outsourced to the point where many of them are scrambling between several minimum wage jobs, and working horrifically long hours, but which cannot pay the bills, let alone medical insurance.

As cnsnews.com reported this last June:

A record 94,708,000 Americans were not in the labor force in May -- 664,000 more than in April -- and the labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent, near its 38-year low, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. When President Obama took office in January 2009, 80,529,000 Americans were not participating in the labor force; since then, 14,179,000 Americans have left the workforce -- some of them retiring and some just quitting because they can't find work.

Apparently, those people who have "given up trying" to find a job are not counted by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, because they have been unemployed "too long to actually matter."

I would like to strongly suggest that these people are NOT irrelevant, and absolutely worth counting, to get a true figure of the staggering scope of the unemployment problem in this country.

MEET HILLARY CLINTON’S MILLION DOLLAR DONORS

A few days ago the Wall Street Journal published a very powerful piece titled, The Million-Dollar Donors. What you’ll see should sufficiently dash any and all fantasies that Hillary Clinton is for the average person.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A vote for Hillary is a vote for more corruption; more domestic and foreign policies for sale to the highest corporate or state-entity bidder; more wars; the renewal of the draft, affecting both our young men and young women; more income inequity; and more offshoring/outsourcing of jobs.

GROCERY TRADE GROUP FINED RECORD $18 MILLION FOR HIDING DONOR NAMES IN GMO BALLOT BATTLE

The Grocery Manufacturers Association must pay a record $18 million for violating campaign-finance laws, a Thurston County Superior Court judge ruled (pdf).

The fine is the largest campaign-finance penalty in U.S. history, according to the state attorney general.

The Washington D.C.-based trade group hid donor contributions to oppose voter Initiative 522, which required labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), according to Judge Anne Hirsch's November 2 ruling.

The measure narrowly failed at the ballot, with 51 percent of voters rejecting it. The association spent $11 million to defeat the initiative, but refused to reveal actual donors such as Coke, Pepsi and Nestle, according to the attorney general's office.

Businesses contributed to internal fund created and overseen by the association, and proceeds were then used to oppose the initiative.

The entire scheme, Attorney General Bob Ferguson said, was concocted to bypass election disclosure rules.

NYT ADMITS KEY AL QAEDA ROLE IN ALEPPO

As much as The New York Times and the mainstream U.S. media have become propaganda outlets on most foreign policy issues, like the one-sided coverage of the bloody Syrian war, sometimes the truth seeps through in on-the-ground reporting by correspondents, even ones who usually are pushing the “propo.”

Such was the case with Anne Barnard’s new reporting from inside west Aleppo, the major portion of the city which is in government hands and copes with regular terror rocket and mortar attacks from rebel-held east Aleppo where Al Qaeda militants and U.S.-armed-and-funded “moderate” rebels fight side-by-side.

As much as The New York Times and the mainstream U.S. media have become propaganda outlets on most foreign policy issues, like the one-sided coverage of the bloody Syrian war, sometimes the truth seeps through in on-the-ground reporting by correspondents, even ones who usually are pushing the “propo.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bottom line here is that Russia is supporting the Al-Assad government in Syria, while the US government is using any means necessary to instigate regime change, including the support of Al-Qaeda, and al-Nusra, no matter how many more lives such support may claim.

Also, as reported at blacklistednews.com today:

Even as Syria and Russia threatened an all-out assault on the rebel side of Aleppo, saying Friday was the last chance for people there to exit, they had been unable to put down a counteroffensive by a mix of Qaeda-linked and United States-backed insurgent groups.

By the US government's support of these groups, as evidenced by the actions of their proxies, it is painfully clear this has utterly NOTHING to do with "humanitarian aid for the Syrian people"; this is all about controlling Syria's resources; ultimately insuring that they are sold only in US dollars, and removing one of Iran's most stalwart supporters in the region.

DNC HACK: A COLD WAR 2.0 FALSE FLAG

If elected this week Hillary Clinton will turn up the heat on brinkmanship with Russia. Democrats insist Russia is behind the DNC hack—never mind evidence, there is none—and Obama has directed the CIA to launch a cyber attack on Russia.

The CIA’s RadioFreeEurope and RadioLiberty claim a Russian hacker group has taken responsibility for the October 21 internet outage in the United States, Europe, and Asia. (For more on the CIA’s Radio Free Europe, see: Persuasion, Propaganda, and Radio Free Europe: The New Archive).

New World Hackers claimed responsibility for the attack via Twitter, though U.S. authorities said they could not verify the claim. They said they organized networks of "zombie" computers to throw 1.2 terabits per second of data at servers managed by Dyn Inc.
VP Joe Biden said publicly Russia is behind the attacks.

Russia has denied it is hacking the US election and is preparing for the promised US attack after the election.

(Not) Keeping Up with the Cardassians: The Regime's Failed Show Trial in Portland

Cardassia is a fictional planet in the Star Trek universe ruled by a totalitarian state with a court system quite similar to our own. Trials on Cardassia do not to examine the charges against the accused since a guilty verdict is foreordained.

The federal conspiracy trial of Ammon and Ryan Bundy and five of their associates was supposed to follow the Cardassian script – but the prosecutors lost the plot when they encountered defendants they couldn’t bluff or bully, defense attorneys who conscientiously represented their clients, and a jury that demanded actual proof of the charges being considered.

Decades ago, at the depth of Stalin-era tyranny, Soviet procurators were admonished to pursue a one hundred percent conviction rate.

Given that roughly one in 212 defendants in federal trials wins an acquittal, it’s clear that the contemporary US system has come much closer to achieving Stalin’s ambition that its Soviet antecedent ever did.

A Digital 9/11 If Trump Wins

Brace yourselves folks. The Globalists are trembling in their boots.

It is a green light for a coup d’état by the Deep State forces who found that they could not win through the “normal” rigging methods.

There are disturbing signs that a digital 9/11 terror attack is being readied for election day in the US to ensure that Donald Trump does not win.

Such an attack – involving widespread internet and power outage – would have nothing to do with Russia or any other foreign state. It would be furnished by agencies of the US Deep State in a classic “false flag” covert manner. But the resulting chaos and “assault on American democracy” will be conveniently blamed on Russia.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

McAuliffe sought to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, but state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed. To get around that, McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, as if he had personally reviewed them, even as his office was saying the total was 13,000.
