HILLARY THE SPY?

Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.

The two systems - the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) - are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot email from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send emails outside the government.

Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton's home emails - including several the CIA earlier this month flagged as containing ultra-secret Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Programs, a subset of SCI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

London And Frankfurt Stock Exchanges To Merge

Deutsche Boerse AG and London Stock Exchange Group Plc (LSEG) said they had reached a merger agreement and saw potential cost savings of 450 million euros ($499 million) per year for the combined company.

"The combination will offer significant value creation potential," Deutsche Boerse said in a statement on Wednesday.

LSEG's current Chairman Donald Brydon would be Chairman of the new company, while Deutsche Boerse's chief Carsten Kengeter would be its CEO, Deutsche Boerse and LSEG both said.

The combined companies’ board would be made up of equal numbers of LSE and Deutsche Boerse directors.

The new firm, which will be domiciled in Britain, with a primary listing in the blue-chip FTSE 100, will also have a home on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and have corporate headquarters in both cities.

Nearly 16 years after their first attempt to merge, the London and Frankfurt exchanges last month confirmed they were holding detailed discussions on an all-share merger.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These derivatives may well be dumped on the British people ahead of the Brexit.

Merrick Garland Offers Poignant Story About Anti-Semitism as Supreme Court Battle Looms

Recounting his Jewish family’s battle with persecution, Judge Merrick Garland made an emotional pitch to become the fourth Jewish justice on the nation’s top court. “My grandparents left the Pale of Settlement…in the early 1900’s, fleeing anti-Semitism and hoping to make a better life for their children in America,” Garland told reporters in the Rose Garden, flanked by President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

Georgia GOPer blocks rape kit bill: We don’t need law ‘just because it makes you feel good’

Georgia Republican state Sen. Renee Unterman has blocked a bill with bipartisan support that would require law enforcement in the state to account for untested evidence of sexual assaults.

Democratic state Rep. Scott Holcomb said that he sponsored House Bill 827 — or the Pursuing Justice for Rape Victims Act — because audits had shown that, in some cases, thousands of rape kits had been ignored for years.

But Unterman, who chairs the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, said that she would not allow the bill to move forward for a full vote on the Senate floor because it had been “overly politicized” by Holcomb, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“If there was a problem, I would be Johnny on the spot and I would have written the legislation,” Unterman insisted. “I think he really overly politicized it in an election year and I’ve got a problem with that.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, Georgia Senator Unterman: you have just declared, by refusing to allow a vote on this bill, that in Georgia, it is "open season" for rapists.

Apparently, you do not believe rape to be a "serious enough" crime to make sure that rape kits get correctly processed.

I would like to hope that your constituents hold you thoroughly, and personally accountable for this travesty in the next Georgia election cycle.

Cleveland prosecutor who cleared cops in Tamir Rice’s death defeated in Dem primary

Cuyahoga County District Attorney Tim McGinty lost his bid for re-election on Tuesday night, less than three months after Cleveland activists began calling for him to be voted out for his handling of the case of 12-year-old Tamir Rice’s shooting death at the hands of police.

CleveScene reported that McGinty conceded the Democratic primary race to opponent Mike O’Malley around midnight local time.

McGinty became the subject of protests around the area for clearing Officers Frank Garmback and Timothy Loehmann in Rice’s death.

Footage showed the boy was shot and killed within seconds of the officers driving up to the boy at a local park, where he was spotted holding a replica gun in late 2014. McGinty has refused to release the testimony heard by the grand jury who heard the case.

DHS, THE FBI AND INTRADO COMMUNICATIONS ARE GIVING OUR HOMES THREAT ASSESSMENTS

Intrado Communications is the company behind assigning every home a threat rating and it’s run by two former deputies, the FBI and DHS.

“George Heinrichs and Stephen Meer spent 35 years building Intrado Inc. into one of the largest public-safety companies providing 911 services.”

“They brought on partners who have experience in areas of public safety and technology who they met while running Intrado – from their time as entrepreneurs and sheriff’s deputies when they launched 911-services company SCC Communications Corp. in 1979, later raising venture funding, changing its name to Intrado, going public on the Nasdaq exchange and being acquired by a larger public company for approximately one-half billion dollars.”

Intrado’s co-founders, (two former cops) were inducted into the Business Hall of Fame for creating a national home threat assessment program!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now, in the alleged "land of the free and the home of the brave" there is a mandatory "threat assessment" of every home?!?

How completely terrified does a government have to be of its own people to do this?!? This sounds so Old Soviet Union, with all the technological advantages of contemporary communications.

I have to shake my head, and wonder what the "threat assessment' is of our home. We tell the truth as we see it, never advocate violence, and work hard to get information out there.

I am a Christian pacifist, who always encourages this government to achieve its geopolitical objectives through logical, moral, good-faith negotiations, rather than through war; does that make me a threat to this government?!?

Has logic, which dissuades me from advocating war, become illegal?!?

Or perhaps is it that my logic, which wants to see everyone in this country given the tools to succeed in making good lives for themselves, very different from the logic of the money junkies, who see people who are not of their financial station, expendable in bloody wars of conquest to enhance their corporations' bottom lines?!?

While we have been distracted, this country's official legal framework has morphed from "innocent until proven guilty", to Code Napoleon law, which stipulates that suspects are "guilty until proven innocent", and the US government is now cascading down a very slippery moral slope indeed.

Jared Fogle BEATEN AND BLOODIED in Prison Yard Ambush

Jared Fogle got a surprise beatdown in federal prison from an inmate who has major issues with child molesters ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs, Fogle got jumped in the rec yard at Englewood prison in Colorado back on January 29, and it was not much of a fight. An inmate named Steven Nigg pushed Fogle down and then unloaded a barrage of punches to his face.

Nigg, who's in for a weapons charge, left Fogle with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck. 60-year-old Nigg was also injured -- a small cut on his left hand from delivering the whuppin'. Prison officials put Nigg in solitary as punishment.

We spoke to Nigg's family and they're not surprised. We're told Steven's pissed because so many child sex predators are housed in the low security facility, and Fogle was just the last straw.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prisons have a social order, and child molesters are at the very bottom. Anybody got a problem with that?

Jewish USSC Nominee Merrick Garland Headed The Oklahoma City False Flag Whitewash / Prosecutions

Obama's latest Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland got his big legal start prosecuting the Oklahoma City bombing case. Garland went to the scene personally, 'investigated,' and pushed for the death penalty for Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. After Garland helped cover up the OKC government terrorism operation, arch-criminal Bill Clinton rewarded him by appointing him to the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C.

Obama to nominate Jewish judge, Merrick Garland, to Supreme Court

President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee is a Jewish judge, Merrick Garland, who is currently the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Garland, 63, a Chicago native, has worked in Washington since the 1970s, first as a Supreme Court clerk, then a private lawyer, an assistant U.S. attorney and, since 1997, a federal judge. Born to a Jewish mother and a Protestant father, Garland was raised as a Jew.

25-Year-Old Syrian Immigrant (U.S. Citizen) Convicted Of Lying In ISIL Terrorism Investigation, Sentenced to 8 Years

The U.S. Department of Justice issued a press release on Monday: "In his plea agreement, Kodaimati admitted that he knew a member of ISIL and that while in Syria he participated in a battle against the Syrian regime, including shooting at others, in coordination with Al Nusrah fighters. During today’s sentencing hearing, U.S. District Judge Anthony Battaglia noted that the crime involved “very, very serious” false statements and that an eight year sentence was necessary to deter others who might be tempted to lie when national security is at stake. “The defendant deliberately hid his connections to terrorists and the fact that he participated in combat in Syria,” said U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy. “This is an appropriately severe sentence that underscores the very serious nature of a crime that has the potential to jeopardize our national security.” Kodaimati was born in Syria and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in September 2008.

Self-Driving Cars Programmed to Sacrifice As They Hit the Road: "Someone Is Going to Die"

Self-driving cars are poised to take over U.S. roads and destroy American jobs… and they will also kill people, even if by accident.

The robot car revolution hit a speed bump on Tuesday as senators and tech experts sounded stern warnings about the potentially fatal risks of self-driving cars.“There is no question that someone is going to die in this technology,” said Duke University roboticist Missy Cummings in testimony before the US Senate committee on commerce, science and transportation. “The question is when and what can we do to minimize that.”

Traffic accident leads to voting snarl

***
U,S. District Judge Susan Dlott called Secretary of State Jon Husted about her concerns shortly after 7:30 and then issued her written order to keep the polls open at 8:13 p.m., Husted's spokesman said.

"A judicial order ... after the polls closed makes it hard to keep the polls open," said Alex Triantafilou, Hamilton County's GOP chairman and a member of the county's board of elections.

He said poll workers in Hamilton, Butler, Clermont and Warren counties found out about the extension from media reports and worked feverishly to accommodate voters who showed up after 7:30 p.m. It's unclear how many polling places didn't get the word, or how many late voters didn't get to cast ballots.

Until the late confusion, few problems were reported and most polling places in Ohio

Christie: Denying Trump Republican nomination at brokered convention may be 'very dangerous'

***
Asked what he thought should happen if Donald Trump or Ted Cruz failed to reach the needed 1,237 GOP convention delegates to win their party's nomination, the governor argued against a brokered convention.

"I think it will be very difficult, if someone comes in close, and has a clear plurality of the delegates, to deny them the nomination," Christie said. "I think it's a very dangerous thing for any party to engage in: To disenfranchise the way people are voting."

BEX ALERT!!!: Op-Ed How a monstrous Putin beat the U.S. in Syria

Max Boot! Go figure. The Neocons are in full blown panic mode!

The entire world was surprised when, at the end of September 2015, Vladimir Putin suddenly started moving Russian aircraft, tanks and troops into Syria.

This week, the world is equally dumbfounded by the Russian president's announcement that he is withdrawing the "main part" of his forces in Syria.
Putin loves to spring surprises on the world, and that's not hard to do when you are an absolute autocrat who doesn't have to rally popular approval for your actions. Just as in the 1930s, it seems that today dictatorships act while democracies dither.

Ted Cruz Goes All-In for Monsanto; Insults Tens of Millions of Health-Conscious Americans by Calling Them ‘Anti Science Zealots’

U.S. presidential candidate and Texas senator Ted Cruz went all-in for Monsanto on the campaign trail in Iowa, parroting Monsanto’s propaganda by proclaiming that GMOs are feeding the world while insulting health-conscious consumers by equating support of GMO labeling with “anti-science zealotry.”

At the Iowa Agricultural Summit, Cruz revealed that he in effect fully supports the mass poisoning of the American people with hidden (unlabeled) GMOs, cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide, farmer suicides caused by GMO crop failures and the widespread genetic pollution unleashed by genetically modified crops. “[W]e shouldn’t let anti-science zealotry shutdown the ability to produce low-cost quality food for billions across the globe,” he stated, invoking a false claim that’s actually a widely disproven Monsanto talking point.

Hilariously, in making that statement, Ted Cruz also implies that he is literate on scientific issues.

Deutsche Bank Derivative Implosion have been confirmed by the pending sale of $1.1 TRILLION in derivatives to 3 US big banks

~Lender looking to complete sale of $1.1 trillion swaps book.

~Deutsche Bank has sold about two-thirds of book since 2015

Deutsche Bank AG, the lender exiting some trading operations, is in talks with JPMorgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. to sell the last batches of about 1 trillion euros ($1.1 trillion) in complex financial instruments, people with knowledge of the matter said.
Deutsche Bank, based in Frankfurt, has sold about two-thirds of the portfolio of uncleared, mostly single-name credit default swaps since last year and wants to sell the rest within the next few months, according to the people, who asked not to be identified as the talks are private.

The American Left has a horrendous history of flat out racism and bigotry, liberally salted with violence. From the 19th and early 20th century Klan, on to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Weather Underground of the 1960s and early 1970s, on to today’s Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter, the Violent Left has trucked in racism or violence or both. The common thread being the goal of shutting down opponents when not terrorizing them into silence.

The Government Wants Apple To Turn Over The iOS Source Code So It Can Spy On Any iPhone

The latest filing in the legal war between the planet’s most powerful government and its most valuable company gave one indication of how the high-stakes confrontation could escalate even further.

In what observers of the case called a carefully calibrated threat, the U.S. Justice Department last week suggested that it would be willing to demand that Apple turn over the "source code" that underlies its products as well as the so-called "signing key" that validates software as coming from Apple.

Together, those two things would give the government the power to develop its own spying software and trick any iPhone into installing it. Eventually, anyone using an Apple device would be unable to tell whether they were using the real thing or a version that had been altered by officials to be used as a spy tool.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very clumsy attempt by the (alleged) US Justice Department to throw the 4th Amendment to the Constitution under a bus; I hope apple sticks to its guns on this.

School may expel Muslim teens for standing up to bullies — after ignoring their pleas for years

o Muslim teens say their New York school has ignored about bullying for years — and now they may be expelled for fighting back.

Adam and Jameel Siam said they have suffered anti-Muslim harassment for at least two years at Williamsville East High School, but they said administrators have done nothing to address their complaints, reported WIVB-TV.

“I was bullied for Osama bin Laden, I’ve been called a terrorist,” said Jameel, a junior. “We’ve been called terrorists, go back home and make bombs in your basement or you’re going to come back and shoot up the school — and it’s just like, people kept pushing our buttons.”

The boys have attended schools in the western New York village since preschool, but they said the bullying has recently grown worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The school administrators should have put a stop to this years ago; the only reason these kids wound up in a fight was that the administration did nothing to prevent this bullying, and that is a damned shame.

Bullying is a lousy thing, but when it is premised on ethnicity and religion, it is just so vilely immoral, that I hardly know where to begin.

I would like to hope that ALL faith communities in the areas where this family is living rally around them, and offer some protection against this harassment.

When Mike and I were living in Greater Los Angeles, I met some Muslim businessmen who moved here for the same reasons my ancestors did; to live away from the evil of prejudice, and practice their religion freely; to have the opportunity to work hard, and succeed in your chosen profession, and to create a better life for their kids.

Unfortunately for these young men, and their families, that "American dream" is being warped into a nightmare, so faith communities Amherst, PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!

No innocent kid should ever be blamed for the evil other people might have done, just because they are Arab and Muslim, period, end of discussion!!

Dangerous nitrate levels in drinking water could persist for decades, increasing the risk for blue baby syndrome and other serious health concerns.
Dangerous nitrate levels in drinking water could persist for decades, increasing the risk for blue baby syndrome and other serious health concerns, according to a new study published by researchers at the University of Waterloo.
Nitrogen fertilizer applied to farmers’ fields has been contaminating rivers and lakes and leaching into drinking water wells for more than eighty years. The study, published this week in a special issue of the journal Environmental Research Letters, reveals that elevated nitrate concentrations in rivers and lakes will remain high for decades, even if farmers stop applying nitrogen fertilizer today.

US INVITES THAI FUGITIVE MASS MURDERER TO NYC

US special interests have been pursuing a decades-long regional agenda in Southeast Asia in an attempt to create a united supranational front with which to confront Beijing.

Exposed first in the “Pentagon Papers” in the 1970s, it was revealed that three fronts existed along which the US sought to “contain” China; the Japan-Korea front; the India-Pakistan front; and the Southeast Asia front.

America’s military occupation of Afghanistan, Japan, and South Korea, along with the South China Sea confrontation it is cultivating against Beijing illustrate how from the 1970s to today, the US is still actively trying to contain China along precisely these fronts.

Since being ousted from power in 2006, Shinawatra has staged violence across the country, murdered well over 100 people through bombings, riots, mass arson, assassinations, and targeted killings.

AIPAC IS COMING TO TOWN

I am reluctant to write two weeks in a row about Israel’s malignant influence over the United States but as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is meeting in Washington for its annual Summit beginning next Sunday some commentary would seem desirable. AIPAC’s website claims that its “… mission is to strengthen, protect and promote the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of Israel and the United States. Our staff and citizen activists educate decision makers about the bonds that unite the United States and Israel and how it is in America’s best interest to help ensure that Israel is safe, strong and secure.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A Clinton presidency will most likely include:

1. More wars in the Middle East to eliminate the "existential threats" Israel contends ALL of its neighbors in the region present.

This means that it will be American military personnel who will fight, die, and get maimed for life, in wars that have nothing to do with actual American security.

2. Israel will be getting more military and financial aid, even as, under the Symington Amendment, it is ineligible for such aid, as it refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and refuses to allow its nuclear weapons to be inspected.

3. We will continue to see an escalated, wholesale slaughter of Palestinians, and a brisk annexation of lands upon which Palestinians have lived for generations, all excused by a Clinton White House in the name of "Israeli Self Defense", exacerbating the tensions in in the region to to new heights of instability.

But HEY, what AIPAC wants, AIPAC gets, right?!?!?

Kalamazoo shootings suspect told police Uber app controlled him 'like A.I.'

The 911 calls and arrest video from February's massacre in Kalamazoo depict the horror and chaos as a gunman struck again and again, leaving six people dead.

Jason Dalton had his family dog in the car with him when he allegedly began his shooting rampage. Dalton apparently was working as an Uber driver and taking fares during his shooting spree. He blames the Uber app he was using for the violence, telling police after he was arrested Feb. 20 that the app took him over "like artificial intelligence that can tap into you body," according to a police document.

Could Hillary Clinton face the same fate as David Petraeus?

Could Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information while secretary of state sink her presidential hopes?

It's a question that has dogged her campaign for over a year - but opinions are divided over whether the allegations made against her constitute a crime or are just the latest partisan sideshow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of Hillary's emails from June 17, 2011, shows Hillary instructing a subordinate, Jake Sullivan, to strip the classification headers off of a document so that it can be sent to her by non-secured means. That is a felony violation of 18 USC 793. On that alone Hillary should be indicted and prosecuted.

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

BARACK O’BOMBER COMPLAINS BITCOIN IS LIKE HAVING A SWISS BANK ACCOUNT IN YOUR POCKET

It was a ridiculous interview – full of the usual spin and lies – but it did show how even the most powerful politicians are being rocked by the internet these days.

And how this is puncturing their gassy rhetoric.

They can’t get away with pontificating about freedom while passing secret orders to rip away freedoms and privacy. They actually have to make arguments to justify the fascism they’re trying to push. And it’s very hard to make those arguments as O’Bomber is finding out,

In a pre-Internet era, Barack would have turned the FBI loose to intimidate the pertinent parties just the way they did with Ma Bell. But there are too many companies making too many products and he and other politicians have lost the old tools of intimidation.

And so he tries to justify the unjustifiable. It comes across as complicated whining:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The internet and independent media have stripped the establishment of their ability to lie to the public with impunity. With that gone, the people of the world see the US Government for what it truly is, making its eventual collapse inevitable.

Dear tyrants. You should have complied with that contract with America, the Constitution, or you would not be in this mess. So stop blaming freedom-loving people because we are onto your lies, frauds, and deceptions, and look in a mirror to find the villain.

You did it to yourselves.

Is GCHQ Embedded in Wikipedia?

Philip Cross may be Oliver Kamm. Or he may be someone who shares his views closely and echoes them in a synchronised way. Or he may be an identity which cloaks the activities of a group of people. But it is absolutely plain that “Philip Cross” is used systematically to attack the Wikipedia entries of prominent anti-establishment figures, and simultaneously to bolster the image of the corporate media. The purpose of “Philip Cross” is to ensure that an anti-establishment narrative does not take hold on Wikipedia.

The burning question is this. “Philip Cross'” activities and purpose are blindingly obvious. Actions such as the hundred edits to my page and removal of my photo, or the continued war on John Piger’s entry, are completely unjustifiable. Why then does Wikipedia continue to tolerate “Philip Cross” and grant him administrator privileges?

VICTORY: Police Settle Rutherford Institute Lawsuit Over Activist Held at Gun Point, Handcuffed and Arrested for Lawfully Carrying a Rifle During a Protest

RICHMOND, Va. — A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit filed by The Rutherford Institute on behalf of a man who was arrested as he was engaged in a First Amendment protest against President Obama while lawfully carrying a rifle. The settlement in Brandon Howard v. John Hunter resolved the lawsuit to the mutual satisfaction of the parties, which included claims that the police violated Howard’s First Amendment right to free speech, Second Amendment right to bear arms, and Fourth Amendment right to be free from a groundless arrest when they confronted him with guns drawn and ordered him to the ground on the unfounded belief that Howard was violating the law by being in public with a rifle slung over his shoulder. Soon after the incident, the City of Hopewell Police Department admitted in writing that the incident involved a violation of department policy.

America’s Gestapo: The FBI’s Reign of Terror

snip: Owing largely to the influence and power of the FBI, the United States—once a nation that abided by the rule of law and held the government accountable for its actions—has steadily devolved into a police state where justice is one-sided, a corporate elite runs the show, representative government is a mockery, police are extensions of the military, surveillance is rampant, privacy is extinct, and the law is little more than a tool for the government to browbeat the people into compliance.

The FBI’s laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property.

Authorities Won't Charge Trump

Cumberland authorities decline to charge Trump after rally violence

Fayetteville, N.C. — The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office decided late Monday not to charge Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump after a protester was punched during a Trump rally in Fayetteville last week.

Deputies were leading the demonstrator out of Crown Coliseum when a man punched the protester in the face. John Franklin McGraw, 78, of Linden, was later charged with assault and battery, disorderly conduct and communicating threats in the case.

Tom Watts For Adams County Idaho Sheriff - Facebook page (Hometown of Jack Yantis)

[NOTE: Many locals in Council, Idaho want to oust the current sheriff Ryan Zollman, who employs the 2 deputies who killed rancher Jack Yantis on Nov. 1st. Zollman had characterized Jack's killing as "a shootout," which was not at al the case. He was having dinner with his family on a peaceful Sunday night when the sheriff dispatcher called Jack out to care for an injured bull. Here is the message from the new candidate:] "My name is Tom Watts, and I am running for Sheriff of Adams County. I grew up in a small town in Nevada and worked on the local ranches before going to work for the Washoe County Sheriff's Department. I proudly served my community as a law enforcement officer for over 20 years in Nevada without ever having a citizen file a complaint against me. I have also worked private security for mining companies in that area. I moved to Adams County in 2012. It has been my pleasure to simply be a part of this community, and it was my intention to retire from law enforcement.

NYC Mayor: Alarming Rise in Stabbings Due to Gun Control — UK-Style Knife Ban Next?

Now even New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has had to admit that gun control doesn't exactly work, especially not in the ways the anti-Second Amendment camp has promised.

Sure, there are fewer guns on the streets of New York, but does that automatically equal safer people? As the NYPD has cracked down on guns, slashings and stabbings have now increased dramatically in NYC, up a whopping 20 percent so far this year.

The reason? De Blasio says the reason is gun control.

The ISIS video with Dimassimo, purportedly a hoax made after the attack, was actually posted to youtube months ago. The story has since changed and the attacker, a child actor with an IMDB profile, is now an innocent college kid who simply wanted to air his opinions against 'racism.'

Pfizer is the subsidiary of Monsanto – another company known for pulling circus acts in court and Congress in order to fleece tax payers. Pfizer’s shareholders are expected to vote on a merger with competitor, Allergan, based in Ireland, which would avert the company’s tax bill significantly. With a self-proclaimed research and development budget of $7.1 billion (based on 2003 data), Pfizer became one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical companies. Despite its US earnings in excess of $49 billion – actually below analysts’ estimates, the company is playing some interesting shell games to try to avoid paying its tax bill.

So it is that it is fair to characterize these “enlightened” people – young and old, male and female, Black, White, Latino and otherwise – as modern day fascists; individuals intolerant of opinions that exist in opposition to their own; individuals that exist delusional to who they have become; “useful idiots” denying others the right to political free speech in defiance of the Bill of Rights.

Targeting China? Australian Military Bases for US bombers

Washington had decided to press its Australian allies on permitting a rotation of bombers at the Darwin and Tindal bases, notably the long-range, nuclear capable B-1B type, in the aftermath of rising tensions in the South China Sea. In 2011, it got Canberra’s acquiescence in increased US troop deployment on Australian soil, a measure that will see US personnel rise to 2,500 in 2017. For all of that, Australians still insist they are not under a benevolent occupation.

According to the neo-conservative American Enterprise Institute’s Michael Auslin, “It is part of an overall rebalancing of military forces to the region.” It continues what is amounting to an increasingly dangerous theatre of demonstrations, with the USS aircraft carrier John C. Stennis along with a cruiser and destroyer stepping up patrols in an effort to maintain freedom of navigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could have various long-term trade consequences for Australian regarding China, and I doubt that those consequences have been really thought through, in the approval of this deal.

The Seven Most Vitriolic Passages in DOJ’s Response to Apple

In case there was ever any doubt, the Justice Department declared war on Apple on Thursday.

Prosecutors demanded that a federal judge force Apple to unlock San Bernardino killer Syed Rizwan Farook’s iPhone in a brief that bristled with so much venom that Apple’s top lawyer, Bruce Sewell, said it “reads like an indictment.”

Sewell, Apple’s senior vice president of legal and global security, was outraged.

“In 30 years of practice, I don’t think I’ve seen a legal brief that was more intended to smear the other side with false accusations and innuendo, and less intended to focus on the real merits of the case,” he said.

“For the first time we see an allegation that Apple has deliberately made changes to block law enforcement requests for access. This should be deeply offensive to everyone that reads it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an assault against the 4th Amendment, pure and simple.

Apple is quite correct in fighting this, tooth and nail.

SCIENTISTS HAVE GROWN 'DINOSAUR LEGS' ON A CHICKEN FOR THE FIRST TIME

Until very recently, one of the biggest myths in science was that all dinosaurs have been extinct for the past 65 million years. But thanks to new fossil discoveries that filled in our knowledge about avian dinosaurs, we now know that only some dinosaurs went extinct following an asteroid collision with Earth - others survived and gave rise to the birds we live with today. To figure out how this evolution occurred, researchers in Chile have manipulated the genes of regular chickens so they develop tubular, dinosaur-like fibulas on their lower legs - one of the two long, spine-like bones you’ll find in a drumstick.

72 PERCENT OF AID TO PALESTINE ENDS UP ‘IN ISRAELI HANDS’

Aid money to Palestine ends up benefiting the Israeli economy, and may even help perpetuate the occupation, according to an analysis published last year. Published by Aid Watch Palestine, a Palestinian NGO that scrutinizes the spending of foreign relief money, the September 2015 study by Shir Hever suggests that at least 72 percent of foreign aid actually ends up back in Israeli hands. Palestine’s economy is dependent on foreign aid, although foreign nations sometimes pledge more than they actually give. The World Bank reported that of $3.5 billion pledged to Palestine in 2015, “only 35 percent has been disbursed, $881 million less than what was supposed to be disbursed so far” by September.
