BREAKING: Istanbul Terror Investigation Suggests STUNNING Obama/Clinton Connection

The New York Times reported that weapons shipped into Jordan by President Barack Obama’s Central Intelligence Agency for Syrian rebel fighters “have been systematically stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold by arms merchants on the black market.”

Included among these arms have been Kalashnikov assault rifles, meaning that the very rifles used by the Istanbul terrorists may have come from the Obama administration.

Warning: House office water tainted with lead

A House office’s water supply has been tainted by high lead levels and may be unsafe, according to a warning blasted out to congressional offices Tuesday night.
In a “dear colleagues” letter, House office buildings superintendent William Weidemeyer told members and staff that the Cannon House Office Building was experiencing lead levels above normal, according to a recent water test.
Story Continued Below

“This week, the AOC received results within the Cannon House Office Building that indicate lead levels in drinking water sources are slightly above the EPA standard,” the email reads. “Although the cause of the increase remains under investigation, in an abundance of caution all drinking water sources and office-provided water filtration units in the building will be turned off beginning at 10 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, 2016.”

The office will be providing bottled water for drinking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, THAT's what's been generating the muddled thinking demonstrated by some of the House's legislation in current years!!! :-)

United States Bombings of Other Countries. America’s “Bombing List”

There appears to be something about launching bombs or missiles from afar onto cities and people that appeals to American military and political leaders. In part it has to do with a conscious desire to not risk American lives in ground combat. And in part, perhaps not entirely conscious, it has to do with not wishing to look upon the gory remains of the victims, allowing American GIs and TV viewers at home to cling to their warm fuzzy feelings about themselves, their government, and their marvelous “family values”. Washington officials are careful to distinguish between the explosives the US drops from the sky and “weapons of mass destruction” (WMD), which only the officially-designated enemies (ODE) are depraved enough to use.

The US government speaks sternly of WMD, defining them as nuclear, chemical and biological in nature, and “indiscriminate” (meaning their use can’t be limited to military objectives), as opposed to the likes of American “precision” cruise missiles.

FEMA Contractor: Unrest After 395% Food Price Spike Coming Soon

By Claire Bernish

Preparations by various cogs of the national security complex, including FEMA, indicate a coming worldwide food shortage — and a resulting crisis marked by extreme civil unrest around the globe.

As Motherboard noted of two reports published previously by CNA Corporation, but which largely escaped attention, the world’s food supply could be insufficient to maintain even current populations much further into the future. And the crisis — which several factors indicate may already be underway — may begin to worsen considerably as early as 2020.

Employing a desktop game simulation of the conditions of a global food shortage, titled “Food Chain Reaction,” CNA’s Institute for Public Research brought together “65 officials from the US, Europe, Africa, India, Brazil, and key multilateral and intergovernmental institutions,” Motherboard explained...

Clinton's "First Major Betrayal"? DNC Surrogates Defeat Anti-TPP Measure

Well, that didn't take long.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, through her surrogates on the Democratic National Committee's platform drafting panel, appears to already be hedging on her most recent stance on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Clinton flipped her position on the corporate-friendly TPP last October, saying she opposed it after having backed it as secretary of state. At the time, Slate ran a piece with the headline, "Hillary Clinton Comes Out Against TPP, at Least Until the Democratic Convention."

Rival Bernie Sanders made opposition to the TPP and trade deals like it a cornerstone of his campaign. He and allies on the committee supported a proposal led by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) that would have added language rejecting the 12-nation, Pacific Rim pact to the 2016 Democratic Party platform.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clinton will say, and do, anything she believes will get her elected; and I do mean anything, including ultimately backing the TPP, and throwing American jobs, and workers, under the bus of her long-held (and corporately supported) globalism agenda.

The real Benghazi scandal was Obama's drive-by war in Libya

There is a real Benghazi scandal and it's this: President Obama illegally invaded Libya, overthrew Moammar Gadhafi, and then--due to politics--left a power vacuum that terrorists filled, turning Libya into a hotbed of jihadist groups. The 2012 attack that killed four Americans was a consequence of the disorder and violence the administration left in the wake of its drive-by war.

Obama’s drive-by strategy in Libya was a disaster—morally and strategically.

CNN reported "Libya's government has been unable to impose its authority over a myriad of militia groups that have grown in power and influence since the 2011 revolution that toppled longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi."

Libya's latest prime minister was driven into hiding by violent threats. Much of the country is utterly ungoverned and, as the Daily Beast's national security writer Eli Lake put it, “its lawless regions provide an ideal haven for al Qaeda affiliates and fellow travelers."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Less protected than they needed to be."?!? My ASTROLABE!!

These people were sitting ducks, with no real protection at all.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton could have done something about this, but chose not to.

Plainly put, the aftermath of Obama's intervention in Libya has been nothing but one, big, fat, hairy epic fail, leaving the country in a critically failed state condition, and a jihad-magnet, on top of everything else.

And why did Obama and Hillary Clinton believe that they needed, desperately and immediately, to assassinate Moammar Gadhafi, and regime change the country?!?

As reported at sputniknews.com on March 17th, 2016:

A declassified email exchange between former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her adviser Sid Blumenthal shows that Clinton was up to her eyeballs in the Western conspiracy against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his Pan-African "Gold Dinar" currency, F. William Engdahl narrates. A recently declassified email from the illegal private server used by ex-Secretary of State and Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton during the Washington-orchestrated war against Muammar Gaddafi sheds some light on the US establishment's genuine motivation. "In a newly declassified Clinton email from Sid Blumenthal to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dated April 2, 2011, Blumenthal reveals the reason that Gaddafi must be eliminated," F. William Engdahl, American author, researcher and risk strategic consultant, writes in his article for New Eastern Outlook. "Using the pretext of citing an unidentified 'high source' Blumenthal writes to Clinton, 'According to sensitive information available to this source, Gaddafi's government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver… This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar," the researcher exposes. Gaddafi was not the only Arabian leader who sought to divert its oil revenues into state-controlled funds, rather than trusting it to New York and London bankers, following the US war on terror kicked off in the Middle East and Central Asia. "By 2008 the prospect of sovereign control by a growing number of African and Arab oil states of their state oil and gas revenues was causing serious concern in Wall Street as well as the City of London. It was huge liquidity, in the trillions, they potentially no longer controlled," Engdahl continues. Meanwhile, in 2009 Gaddafi, then President of the African Union, offered the states of the continent to shift to a new currency, independent from the US dollar, the so-called "Gold Dinar." According to the researcher, the idea, voiced by the Libyan leader, received high praise from Tunisia's Ben Ali and Mubarak's Egypt. Gaddafi called upon African nations to create a currency alliance making the gold dinar the primary means of payment for oil and other resources. "Along with the Arab OPEC sovereign wealth funds for their oil, other African oil nations, specifically Angola and Nigeria, were moving to create their own national oil wealth funds at the time of the 2011 NATO bombing of Libya," Engdahl writes, adding that those sovereign national funds were supposed to make Africa independent from colonial monetary control.

DNC Platform Leaves Door Open for No-Fly Zone in Syria, Refuses to Call for End to Israeli Occupation

THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE’S Platform Drafting Committee quashed efforts by the Bernie Sanders campaign last week to insert language in the platform opposing a U.S.-led no-fly zone in Syria and calling for an end to Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The deliberations, which took place in St. Louis last week as part of a multi-step process to write the party’s nonbinding platform, represent a tilt to a more hawkish direction for Democrats under presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton. The final platform will not be written until the convention in Philadelphia next month – a process that could possibly open it to votes from a much wider pool of delegates on the floor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that the people writing the platform for the Democratic Party love war; love the military industrial complex, in which so many are invested, and which, in turn, invests in their campaigns; and the continued oppression of the Palestinian people, with no relief in sight.

The reason they love war is that it is the only instrument available, in their thinking, to prevent the loss of hegemony of the US dollar over other publicly traded currencies, and keep American weapons manufacturers profitable.

These people are completely, and enthusiastically, willing to send your sons and daughters to die to protect the US currency, and the profits of the US war machine, at all costs; after all, it certainly won't be their kids, getting killed or maimed for life toward those ends.

80 Killed in Heavy Fighting, Airstrikes in Yemen

Heavy fighting between the pro-Saudi forces and the Shi’ite Houthis in Yemen over the past 24 hours left at least 80 people dead nationwide, one of the single deadliest days of fighting in months, and a sign that the crumbling peace process is no longer restraining fighters on either side.

The largest death toll was in an airstrike by the Saudi military, which killed 34 people in Taiz in a target on a Shi’ite controlled area. 19 civilians were among the slain, according to reports from the area.

The area hit in Taiz was a commercial road between a pair of villages, hitting several shops in the area and killing a number of shoppers and storekeepers in the process. A number of people were also wounded in the airstrikes.

Another Saudi airstrike hit pro-Saudi forces traveling in a vehicle in a contested area, killing four troops in what officials described as an accident. Further south in Shabwa, seven civilians were killed in a pair of drone strikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This US-enabled war against the Houthi rebels in Yemen, lead by the Saudis, is so morally repellent, that I do not know where to start.

And, in fact, the war has been going so badly here that the UAE has hired private mercs to take some of the heat off the Saudi forces. As reported at syrianfreepress.wordpress.com in March of this year:

The first batch of mercenaries from the private US military firm DynCorp has arrived in the Yemeni city of Aden to replace paid militants from another American company. Under a USD-3-billion contract between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and DynCorp, mercenaries from the company are to be deployed to Yemen, where UAE forces are fighting against the Yemeni army and Popular Committees on Saudi orders, Khabar News Agency quoted an official with Yemeni Defense Ministry as saying. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the first group of the mercenaries recently arrived in the port city of Aden to replace those of Blackwater, a notorious American group now renamed Academi. He added that the new militants included special naval forces, who entered the port of Ras Omran southwest of Aden. DynCorp is a rival of Blackwater, which hires mercenaries and sends them to fight in foreign countries on paid missions. Blackwater had decided to withdraw from Bab-el-Mandeb region after the Yemeni forces inflicted heavy losses on them. The UAE was forced to bring in the new mercenaries from DynCorp for the same reason.

The US government position is to throw out the Houthi rebels, because they, last year, threw out the US puppet, Al-Hadi, for immense corruption; the US wants Al-Hadi back in again, because he is, after all, their thug.

The Saudis haven't much headway here, well over a year into this conflict.

And one has to wonder, what was the driving force, propelling the Saudi Government, and the House of Saud to initiate, and continue, this US-enabled war?!?

As reported at sputniknews.com, on 4 June, 2017:

Why does Saudi Arabia continue to bomb Yemen back into the Stone Age? The crux of the matter is that Yemen has oil reserves, while Riyadh is steadily running out of the commodity, American political analyst Phil Butler explains. A Saudi banker displays the new one hundred riyal banknote bearing the portrait of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud at a bank in Riyadh, 05 June 2007 © AFP 2016/ HASSAN AMMAR Out of Money: Saudi Arabia Shot Itself in the Foot by Dropping Oil Prices According to American political analyst and researcher Phil Butler, the US-backed Saudi Arabian war against Yemen is neither about the longstanding sectarian strife between Sunnis and Shiites, nor about the much-discussed military campaign aimed against al-Qaeda in the region. While Western media outlets usually refer to Yemen as a "small" energy producer, the truth of the matter is the country is sitting on substantial oil and gas reserves, which Saudi Arabia and its allies want to control, Butler notes. In addition, Yemen lies at the Bab el-Mandab, a key checkpoint for maritime transit of oil, with 3.4 million barrels of oil passing through it each day. In one of his previous analytical reports for New Eastern Outlook, Phil Butler called attention to the fact that Saudi Arabia's oil wealth is doomed to falter: "Given the nature of the country's [Saudi Arabia's] oil reserves, and almost unlimited production for decades, it's possible the Saudis could simply be running out of gas," the American analyst stressed. In this context, it is hardly surprising that Riyadh has recently adopted an assertive and even aggressive foreign policy approach towards its neighbors. "Running out of the last of the nation's only saleable resource, the Saudi royalty have put their country into a mess, the potential for revolution there being acute, should the people discover the real predicament. This is why we see an 'all in' Saudi aggressive stance, on Syria, with Iran, and especially where Yemen is concerned. While Washington think tank evangelists try and play the tensions off as Sunni-Shiite religious friction, new oil reserves are the truth of these matters," Butler writes.

So, in a nutshell, there you have it.

And President Obama, please be aware; thinking Americans are watching this, and morally condemning the US-enabled and brutal slaughter of Yemenite innocents, as the Saudis have absolutely no compunctions against shelling schools, hospitals, and residences.

The US government is, once again, enabling war crimes here, and doesn't see this as a problem.

OF course, everyone who has signed off on this dirty war has had their conscience surgically removed, from the top levels of government on down.

The Accusations Begin: David Cameron Blames Brexit On Merkel And EU "Immigration Failure"

The Brexit vote is history, and so is David Cameron's reign as Britain's prime minister whose gamble to allow an EU referendum backfired spectacularly. And today, in what Bloomberg earlier dubbed his "last summer" Cameron had the unpleasant task of telling his Eurocrat peers during what is hist last Brussels summit why he failed. Only he didn't and instead, as the FT writes, Cameron flipped the tables and told European leaders he lost the EU referendum because they failed to address public concerns over immigration, as tensions rose ahead of looming Brexit negotiations.

Jehovah’s Witnesses accused of vandalizing 7,000 year-old pyramid out of fears of devil worship

Memmbers of the Jehovah’s Witnesses church have been accused to vandalizing a 7,000 year old religious site in Mexico as part of a religious campaign against devil worship, reports Telesur.

According to local media sources, recent damage at the base of a pyramid at the San Bartolo Tutotepec archeological site falls in line the destruction of altars in the area that church members have taken responsibility for.

Members of the Christian sect state that they are following the word of God and believe that the sites are still used for traditional rituals that are “not Christian” and may involve devil worship.

In fact, according to anthropologists, the sites are used by the Otomi people who hold sacred various deities including earth, water, and fire and worship by giving offerings.

The 7,000 year-old Makonikha sanctuary in the central Mexican state of Hidalgo is comparable to Mecca for Muslims or the Vatican for Catholics, the researchers explained.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the brilliant American comedian, Ron White, comes a very apt one-liner here: you can't fix stupid.

IF in fact these people did this desecration to an historical, 7,000 year old archeological site, they should be tried and convicted within the fullest extent of Mexican law.

To destroy another faith's religious site in such a way, is an attempt at obliterating a people's history, and that should be a big, tacky hairy no-no, to anyone with a shred of sense, and cultural sensitivity.

But, unfortunately, logic and cultural sensitivity utterly do not exist in the alleged "thought processes" of the people who thought that this was a really swell idea.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY JIM CARREY CALLED OUT “GOVERNMENT FASCISM” IN RESPONSE TO MANDATORY VACCINATION LAW

When the passing of a mandatory vaccine law for children in California took place in 2015, various public figures and activists, including Jim Carrey, took to social media to voice their thoughts around the new mandate. The bill removes all exemptions to vaccine requirements for school entry except those medically indicated. The law applies to students attending any public or private school in the state, so parents who choose not to vaccinate children for non-medical reasons would need to homeschool their children. The only other states with similar immunization policies that do not allow any non-medical exemptions are Mississippi and West Virginia.

Carrey is not the only one making noise, a documentary which explores the possible harmful health outcomes of vaccines titled Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe was set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month, but after receiving severe public backlash, was pulled from the festival.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two thoughts here; either homeschool your child, or move from the state of California, period, end of discussion; the state government here has, collectively, lost its mind.

There is no such thing as a "safe" amount of mercury in a vaccine; it is simply a preservative to give the product a longer shelf life.

And the other problem is, there have never been any tests to validate the safety of multiple vaccines, when administered together.

If I were the parent of a very young child, this would be keeping me up at night.

And as reported at activistpost.com in April of this year:

A HUGE hat tip and shout out goes to Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, for finding pharmacological admittance and written proof that at least one vaccine causes autism as an adverse reaction. According to the U.S. FDA’s online Biologics Blood Vaccines publication, Sanofi Pasteur’s Diphtheria, Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed (DTaP) package insert information under the section for Adverse Reactions, which runs from page 6 to page 11, we find the following declared admission that DTaP caused autism “during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine.” See the copy and paste information below. So, why all the denials that a vaccine hasn’t or can’t cause autism?

Please, if you are a parent, or have kids you love around you, take time to read the entire article.

And you have to ask yourself, if the DTAP vaccine can cause autism, why in heaven's name is it still allowed to be used by the FDA?!?

The answer is very simple.

The vaccine industry makes billions, no matter how many people are hurt by vaccines with known side effects, like the vaccine described above.

And if all vaccines are really that safe, why does the US have a National Vaccine Injury Compensation program?!? As reported at the dailysheeple.com one year ago last April:

If a case makes it to vaccine court and an award is granted to a family, the money comes from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Since the first National Vaccine Injury Compensation (VICP) claims were filed in 1989, 3,887 compensation awards have been made. More than $3.0 billion in compensation awards has been paid to petitioners and more than $120.4 million has been paid to cover attorneys’ fees and other legal costs. To date, 9,860 claims have been dismissed. Of those, 4,912 claimants were paid more than $64.8 million to cover attorneys’ fees and other legal costs. For those who are still skeptical that such a thing exists… The following are cases in which the families of children who suffered from vaccine-related injuries (and in one case, unfortunately, death) were awarded compensation by the vaccine court. Click on each child’s name to view the actual court documents.

I am not an anti-vaxxer; but I strongly believe that US citizens should have the right for those vaccines given to their kids to be 100% safe; pharmaceutical companies CAN do this, but choose not to, because it is more expensive, and - hey - when it comes to money, children are merely....expendable.

Clinton campaign tracked reporters to shield her from tough questions

Hillary Clinton’s campaign “secretly tracked” aggressive reporters to make sure they didn’t get a chance to ask tough questions, according to emails leaked today by Guccifer 2.0.

The hacker claims to have broken into email accounts of Clinton campaign staffers, according to the Smoking Gun, which first reported the story.

The emails show the Clinton campaign went into full defense mode in February to prevent reporters from getting near Clinton, her daughter, Chelsea, and hubby, Bill, at a Las Vegas rally.

In emails, members of the Clinton ropeline platoon reported on the movement of reporters, especially Dan Merica, a CNN producer assigned to cover Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is very simple: Clinton does not like hard questions, because she does not have honest answers for them, so she wants to avoid them as though they were the plague

America deserves far better than this as their Democratic nominee for President.

I have to wonder what the quid pro quo was for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to be pushing this woman down people's throats so intently, as though she were somehow "anointed" to be President.

I have to wonder what Cabinet post Wasserman-Schultz has been promised, if she wins/steals the election for Clinton.

And don't get me wrong; as a woman, I would love to see a strong, intellectually capable, and rational woman as President of this country; just please, heaven, not this woman.

AG says Michigan governor's private attorneys withheld documents in Flint water probe

Gov. Rick Snyder's private attorneys withheld documents that investigators with the Michigan Attorney General's Office have requested, Attorney General Bill Schuette said.

Snyder's spokesman said Tuesday the The governor's office is working to comply with the investigation.

Schuette identified the governor's attorneys during a June 28 roundtable when asked for details about who was withholding documents.

"It's the governor's private attorneys that were not providing that information," Schuette said Tuesday to a roomful of reporters and news cameras.

"I think we'll solve that, but that's the issue," Schuette said. He did not give details as to how the issue would be solved, or if the requested documents were still outstanding Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Everyone in the State of Michigan, who signed off on changing the water source for the city of Flint, should be collectively tried for massive, reckless health endangerment, convicted, and serve the hardest time possible, to discourage any city and state officials in the US from EVER attempting to pull a stunt like that again.

Because although certain treatments (like chelation therapy) can remove the lead from the body, they cannot remove the damage lead has already done to kids' bodies and minds.

No citizen of this country should EVER be treated as expendable, ever,and this is precisely what happened to the citizens of Flint, and their families.

Now Juncker to force all remaining EU countries to adopt the euro after Brexit paves way for single monetary union 

The eight EU members who do not currently use the euro may be forced to adopt it in a bid to speed up monetary union in the wake of Brexit.

The Daily Express reports that Denmark, Sweden, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania will be given an ultimatum by the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker .

The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung claimed there were plans afoot to accelerate the 'completion' of the monetary union.
Brexit campaigners claim the plans show that the Leave vote in last week's referendum proved a 'great escape' for Britain.

Earlier this week Czech foreign minister Lubomir Zaoralek said the EU’s chief bureaucrat was a ‘negative symbol’ of the kind of federalism British voters rejected in the referendum and called for him to resign in the wake of Brexit.
But Juncker is resisting pressure to go and is instead planning to speed up European integration.

I seriously doubt that Juncker is going to be able to hold this together, in light of the fact that a number of other European countries are looking for their own moment to exit the EU.

MEXICAN RESISTANCE TO NEOLIBERAL SOCIAL CUTS

Eight people were killed in Nochixtlán, a town near Oaxaca City in Mexico, after turning out to support a blockade by teachers protesting neoliberal cuts to education and other social programs, reported independent journalist Andalusia Knoll Soloff from the scene of the clashes with police.
“The residents came out when they heard about the repression on Sunday [June 19],” Soloff told me over a noisy phone line. “They had come out to support the teachers, and many, mostly young men, came out to help the people who were injured. One family had a 19-year-old son who went in the ambulance to help the wounded and when they arrived at the blockade, he was killed by the police.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the level, and kind, of serfdom and poverty, into which the globalists in this country want to shove you and your kids.

In the most peaceful and lawful ways possible, this must be contested in this country.

EX-STATE DEPT. OFFICIAL MAY HAVE LIED TO CONGRESS ABOUT HILLARY’S EMAIL SETUP

The recent release of House Benghazi Committee interview transcripts includes one from a now-retired State Department official who appears to have given inconsistent statements about his knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s email practices.

During an interview with the committee last year, John Bentel, the former director of the Executive Secretariat’s information resource management division, which manages records and communications for State Department’s leadership, claimed he had no knowledge of Clinton’s use of personal email account or private server.

But emails recently released by Judicial Watch — as well as findings laid out in a recent State Department inspector general’s report — appear to show that he was involved in discussions about Clinton’s email use. He also received a memo in March 2009 which showed that Clinton’s private server was set to be installed at her New York residence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bentel understands the power both Bill and Hill hold over the Beltway, and I am sure he doesn't want to get "Fosterized" (as in the strange "alleged suicide" of Vincent Foster).

However, I do have a suggestion for Charles Grassley; this guy needs to be hit with potential "Contempt of Congress" lawsuit, which could translate into some really uncomfortable jail time for him, unless he answers these questions.

Nobody should be allowed to believe that they are above the law in this country; nobody.

INTOLERABLE: Clinton on Benghazi report: Time to 'move on'

(AP) - Hillary Clinton said Tuesday the nation should move on after Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee released a report critical of the slow response to the deadly 2012 attacks at the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Libya.

The former secretary of state said at a campaign event in Denver that the report involved more than two years and $7 million but "found nothing, nothing to contradict" the findings of earlier investigations.

"I'll leave it to others to characterize this report but I think it's pretty clear it's time to move on," Clinton told reporters.

Ann Coulter: "Trump's Popularity Can't Be Measured By Traditional Polls"

Ann Coulter says Trump's popularity, much like Brexit, can't be measured by traditional polls.

"[Anger over immigration and amnesty] is what the Trump candidacy is about, it is quite parallel to what's happening with Brexit: The people speak, and both political parties, I'm sorry to say my own political party... Until Trump, both political parties have been aligned against us to do the bidding of Wall Street. To protect the corporations, to bring in cheap labor. They're getting massively rich, living with a level of degeneracy not seen since the Czar's court, and meanwhile Americans out in America haven't seen their wages or salaries go up for years."

An Endless Cycle of Indecisive Wars

Here’s an unavoidable fact: we are now in a Brexit world. We are seeing the first signs of a major fragmentation of this planet that, until recently, the cognoscenti were convinced was globalizing rapidly and headed for unifications of all sorts. If you want a single figure that catches the grim spirit of our moment, it’s 65 million. That’s the record-setting number of people that the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees estimates were displaced in 2015 by “conflict and persecution,” one of every 113 inhabitants of the planet. That's more than were generated in the wake of World War II at a time when significant parts of the globe had been devastated. Of the 21 million refugees among them, 51% were children (often separated from their parents and lacking any access to education). Most of the displaced of 2015 were, in fact, internal refugees, still in their own often splintered states. Almost half of those who fled across borders have come from three countries: Syria (4.9 million), Afghanistan (2.7 million), and Somalia (1.1 million).

Despite the headlines about refugees heading for Europe -- approximately a million of them made it there last year (with more dying on the way) -- most of the uprooted who leave their homelands end up in poor or economically mid-level neighboring lands, with Turkey at 2.5 million refugees leading the way. In this fashion, the disruption of spreading conflicts and chaos, especially across the Greater Middle East and Africa, only brings more conflict and chaos with it wherever those refugees are forced to go.

Victory Is Possible

Few people expected the positive outcome of Brexit referendum. Among other doubters, I expected the UK government will borrow a trick from the Clinton collection, and proclaim the Bremain hath it.

We witnessed so many dirty tricks in the Dem primary this year: the votes were not counted, but the newspapers called Hillary the winner; millions could not vote at all being stricken off the roll; Trump was demonised as a new Hitler; so I thought they will do the same in the UK vote.

From the media accolades for Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in a recent Supreme Court case involving the use of illegally obtained evidence, it’s almost unclear if media realized that the ruling represents a loss for her point of view. With a 5-3 decision in the case Utah v. Strief, the Court said that a police officer may detain someone without cause and run their identification, and, if they uncover a warrant, may arrest them and charge them with additional crimes, based on what they find in a search.

Embarrassed UNC Ditches Lampooned Guidelines on ‘Micro-Aggressions’

At the University of North Carolina, it’s now safe (again) for employees to hold golf outings and compliment their coworkers’ platform wedges.

UNC has removed “guidelines” for avoiding micro-aggression incidents on campus that included both of those behaviors. According to a statement released in the wake of concern over its free speech policies, UNC says the information, which was posted by a school employee in a forum intended for faculty and staff to share information and discuss potential policy changes, does not reflect the school’s official policy on handling questions of campus speech.

NATO’s new headquarters designed like Nazi SS lightning bolts in outrageous ‘fighting words’ to Russia, Orwellian opposite of stated goals of ‘democracy, cooperation, peace’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

NATO promises completion of their new headquarters this year, whose overhead view mimics Nazi SS twin lightning bolts. This design is as accidental as ongoing US/UK/Israel lie-started Wars of Aggression, and now in opposition to Russia’s challenges on War of Aggression/“regime change” in Syria.

NATO claims goals of democracy, cooperation, and peace, and in cooperation with UN purposes and principles of peace.

Whatever the purpose of NATO’s choice of architecture, its easy for the public to see that NATO “leadership” supports current and ongoing US/UK/Israel illegal Wars of Aggression, led by the US.

The data confirm this recognition:

Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them (81%).
These US-started armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men.
The US has war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.

Donald Trump’s Trade Speech: Clinton ‘Worships Globalism over Americanism’

Now you are speakin my language!

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke in Monessen, Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon, differentiating his trade policy of an independent America from presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s record on trade and globalization.
“Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization — moving our jobs, our wealth, and our factories to Mexico and overseas,” Trump declared. “Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy. But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.”

7 OUT OF 10 AMERICANS AGREE THAT ECONOMY IS RIGGED AGAINST THEM

The latest Marketplace-Edison Research poll shows Americans’ stress over their personal financial situation building even before Brexit. We asked basic questions about, for example, household budgets, family vacations and paying bills. Americans’ responses showed that, in May, our country’s anxiety level climbed to its highest point since the beginning of our poll.

Here are a couple of things Americans told us:

More of them are losing sleep over their financial situation: 32 percent now compared with 28 percent in September 2015.
They are less confident that they could find a new job within six months if they were to lose their current job: 41 percent are very confident about finding a new job now compared with 46 percent in September 2015.
On questions about trade and economic fairness — issues that British voters debated in the U.K. before Brexit — and that are resonating in the U.S. 2016 presidential campaign:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am actually surprised that the number is that low, honestly; I would have imagined that the numbers would be higher here.

And about being "afraid" and "embarrassed" by our lack of choices in this presidential election?!? I can fully understand this.

Yes, Trump does manage to behave, many times, like a blunt instrument; but his saving grace to me is his innate intelligence, and the fact that he is capable of sounding out the problems with this economy cleanly and clearly.

I am watching his press conference, where he is stating that we import 800 billion dollars more than we export, and that is definitely a huge economic problem.

He is beholden to no special interests, because of his wealth, and he has tapped into a lot of legitimate anger Americans are feeling about their lot in this country at this point in their lives.

That is something the Democrats are refusing to deal with, and it may well cost them, big-time, in this election.

The middle class in this country is being squeezed into extinction by the continuing offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs to cheaper labor pools, and Americans are hurting because of this.

They are also hurting because of the problems caused by illegal immigration, which is driving down labor costs here at home.

Hillary Clinton is the uber-globalist sociopath who has never, in her professional life, seen a US government-instigated war as something she didn't love, particularly if such a war potentially benefited Israel.

I would definitely be willing to take my chances with a Trump presidency, over a Clinton presidency; this office is not supposed to be a dynasty in this country, but a choice about where We the People want this country to go.
And this presidential election seems to be a choice between smart nationalism, and globalism, which to date, does not seem to have served the American people well at all.

I think that there can be such a thing as smart nationalism when it comes to the US economy, which can engage the world by producing intelligently thought out and competitive products.

US TO DEPLOY ISRAELI MISSILE SYSTEM ON RUSSIAN BORDERS: GENERAL

The US military has tested an Israeli short-range missile for possible use in its European network of missile systems to deter Russia, says a US Army general.

Major General Glenn Bramhall of the US Army’s Air and Missile Defense Command made the comments on Monday, as he visited the occupied Palestinian territories.

Bramhall said his units needed a reliable system to counter less powerful missile threats as a third tier beside the Army’s array of midrange Patriot and THAAD missile systems.

“Patriot and THAAD are great systems that do what they were designed to do. But I don’t think we would want to waste a Patriot or a THAAD missile on something that can be affected by something that’s lower cost and is actually designed for that job itself,” the general told Reuters.

For that purpose, he said the US military has test-launched a variant of the Israeli “Tamir” rocket which is incorporated to the Tel Aviv regime’s so-called Iron Dome missile system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT Russian "...military buildup in Europe." ?!?!?!?

It has been the US and NATO which have been doing a huge military buildup on the borders with Russia, not the other way around.

Folks, we are being fed this codswallop to "groom" the American public toward accepting a shooting war against Russia; this is a war the US military may well not win, because the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

The weapons procurement system is nothing short of incestuous in this country, because those Congressional representatives who hand out contracts for weapons are, themselves, funded by those same weapons companies.

So the end of the day, most of what our military gets in terms of weaponry is frightfully over budget; obsolete even before it is field-deployed; and rarely functioning as they are supposed to function.

A brilliant example of this problem is the tale of the F-35, consistently embroiled in a string of terrible problems which appears to be never-ending. As reported by Claire Bernish at activistpost.com in February of this year:

As is typical for the Pentagon’s continuous mismanagement of its enormous budget, the F-35 fighter program — with its $1.5 trillion cost to taxpayers so far — continues to be fraught with complications and failures. According to an 82-page report released Monday, myriad flaws still plague the Pentagon’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft, including an ejection system likely to break the necks of pilots under 136 pounds. “Testing showed that the ejection seat rotates backwards after ejection. This results in the pilot’s neck becoming extended, as the head moves behind the shoulders in a ‘chin up’ position,” the report states.

Forgive me, but did none of the engineers at Lockheed-Martin see this coming?!?

As those of you know who occasionally read my posts on this blog, I hate the concept of war as being the US government's answer to geopolitical disputes; but that having been said, should the US government go to war, I want our military to have the best of the best.

And because of the way our weapons procurement program is structured, getting weapons that work, and are delivered on time, and within budget, is just about as rare as is a unicorn.

Brexit Vote So Overwhelming It Overcame Fraud. Michael Rivero - June 27, 2016

Jun 28 10:35

RON PAUL: “AFTER ‘BREXIT,’ CAN WE EXIT A FEW THINGS TOO?”

What is happening in the UK, in Europe, and in the US, is nothing less than a breakdown of the entire system. The EU was meant to be a customs union where post-World War II Western Europe could rebuild itself through free trade and a reduction in bureaucracy. Through corruption and political ambition it became an unelected bully government in Brussels, where the well-connected were well compensated and insulated from the votes of mere citizens.

Whatever happens in the near future – and it is certainly not assured that the vote to “Brexit” will actually end in the UK’s departure from the EU – a line has been crossed that supporters of more personal liberty should celebrate. Rule from London is preferable to liberty-minded Britons than rule from Brussels. Just as Texans should prefer rule from Austin to rule from Washington. That doesn’t make either option perfect, just more likely to produce more freedom.

Federal Judge: U.S. Constitution Is Outdated, Judges Should Stop Studying It

According to 7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner in a post published to Slate, U.S. judges should stop studying the Constitution.

“I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation,” Posner argued.

“Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century,” he continued. “Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Constitution and Bill of Rights are "meaningless", then the USA is no longer a "nation of laws"; these historical documents are the original "Contract with America", and the fact that this reality has seemed to elude Judge Posner is deeply worrying.

WALLS FOR ME BUT NOT FOR THEE: ZUCKERBERG BUILDS GIANT WALL AROUND HAWAII PROPERTY

Mark Zuckerberg attacked the "fearful voices calling for building walls" and opposing illegal immigration earlier this year, yet he himself insists on living in walled off compounds.

As the Gateway Pundit highlights, Zuckerberg built a giant wall around his own fortified $10 million mansion in Delores Heights, San Francisco just two years ago.

For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

"The feeling of it is really oppressive. It's immense," Hall said. "It's really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that's been available and appreciative by the community here for years."

Now note that the so-called "TWP" folks are, by their own admission, "white nationalists."

We have a First Amendment in this country. The "counter-protesters" intent was to prevent these people from being able to exercise their First Amendment rights, they initiated violence for that purpose which ultimately resulted in several serious knife wounds and they succeeded in destroying the TWP's First Amendment right to free speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any time anyone tries to block Freedom of Speech, it means they have something to hide or know they cannot prevail in open debate on the issues. This is true whether it is counter-protesters disrupting a rally, hired mobs violently disrupting Trump's campaign stops, Israel trying to criminalize criticism of their policies, or hackers trying to wreck websites critical of Hillary Clinton. Now, I am certain the people who do such things go to bed at night assuring themselves they serve some higher purpose that transcends the Bill of Rights, but the truth is they are all traitors to the founding principles of this nation. It is easy to support freedom of speech when you agree with the speaker. The true test of your commitment to freedom of speech is when you allow someone you don't agree with to have their fair say.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. ‘Economics’ as limited and flawed models while ignoring criminal looting fraud to call debt as ‘money’ and ‘good,’ ignoring game-changing reforms (4 of 12)

I’ve participated with Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board available to ~2,000 teachers since 2008. No colleague has ever found any factual errors or omissions in the game-changing facts of monetary and banking reforms; with prima facie benefits of $1,000,000 per US household. Moreover, this topic has real-world success documented by Ben Franklin and endorsed by Thomas Edison (among many of our nation’s brightest minds).

Then, in recent decades, came a familiar challenge: Bassett was undercut by imports from Asia and under pressure from shareholders to improve its profit margins. By 2007, it had closed all the plants in Bassett and decided to focus on importing wood products from lower-wage factories in China, Vietnam, and Indonesia. These days, Bassett Furniture places more emphasis, in the U.S., on retail stores, called Bassett Home Furnishings, where it sells mostly imported wood products>>>

The Bassett factory closings came not long after many of the region’s textile plants had closed for the same reasons.>>>

Why Erdogan apologized to Putin

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has apologized to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the shooting down of a Russian Su-24 bomber in the skies over Syria, the president's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said. According to experts, Erdogan took such a step due to the deterioration in relations with the EU over refugees and the economic consequences of the breakdown in relations with Moscow.

Erdogan's letter to Putin, which the Kremlin announced on June 27, 2016, expresses regret over the Russian Su-24 bomber downed in Syria at the end of November 2015.

“After the Su-24 incident, Turkey tried in its foreign policy to find allies on this issue by playing on the contradictions between the European Union and Russia,” Alexei Arbatov, head of the International Security Center at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations at the Russian Academy of Sciences, said in an interview with RBTH.

According to him, the economic and political situation in the country has forced Ankara to change its position with the financial crisis and rupture of relations with Moscow having an extremely negative impact on the country's budget.

Food Monopoly Aimed at Controlling Population Destroys Environment and Poses Serious Threat to Human Health

Yes, food is power, and all around the world we now see how the monopolization of the food supply has created a vast gulf between the "have" and the "have nots." Far from fostering greater food security, we've become more food insecure than ever before.

It's quite simple really. If you have access to clean, nutritious food, you survive and thrive. If you don't, disease and premature death is your lot.

Today, malnutrition is not a problem relegated to developing countries. Never before have affluent nations had so many malnourished yet obese people — a paradox rooted in a poor and toxic diet, churned out by industrial crop growers, concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and fish farms.

The strategy to control people by controlling the food supply, first through the conversion from many small farms to fewer, gigantic farming operations and associated price fixing schemes, and later through the creation of genetically engineered (GE) seeds, effectively destroyed family farming both in the U.S. and abroad.
