United Stoners Of America: More Than 33mn US Citizens Smoke Pot

BEX ALERT: Donald Trump Suggests Shooting Hillary Clinton, Her Supreme Court Picks, Or Both

“A person seeking to be the president of the United States should not suggest violence in any way,” the Clinton campaign responded.

S.V. Date Senior Political Correspondent, The Huffington Post

Donald Trump on Tuesday warned his supporters that if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints judges to the Supreme Court, there is nothing anyone can do about it. But then he added that, given the Second Amendment, maybe there is.

“If she gets to pick her judges ? nothing you can do, folks,” Trump said with a shrug at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina. “Although, the Second Amendment people. Maybe there is. I don’t know.”

Do not adjust your TV! Olympics fans left stumped as Rio diving pool turns DARK GREEN

Jaw-dropping photos have emerged of the supposed state-of-the-art venue, the Maria Lenk Aquatics Venue, looking worse for wear.

The diving pool has turned a brilliant shade of green, in stark contrast to the water polo pool beside it, which has pristine waters.

The odd sight has prompted an outpouring on social media, with people likening the pool to something more suited to Shrek’s habitat than an Olympic venue.

Others joked about athletes peeing in the pool, causing it to change colour.

An Updated Version of the “Peak Oil” Story

It is becoming apparent that if oil prices can be raised to a high enough level, a lot more oil is available. Figure 5 shows how I see this as happening. We start at the top of the triangle, where there is a relatively small quantity of inexpensive oil, and we gradually work toward the expensive oil at the bottom.

The amount of oil (or for that matter, any other resource) isn’t a fixed amount. If the price can be made to rise to a very high level, the quantity that can be extracted will also tend to rise–in fact, by a rather large amount. The “catch” is that wages for the vast majority of workers don’t rise at the same time. As a result, goods made with high-priced oil soon become too expensive for workers to afford, and the economy falls into recession. The result is prices that fall below the cost of production. Thus, the limit on oil supply is not the amount of oil in the ground; instead, it is how high oil prices can rise, without causing serious recession. (my emphasis /SR)

While wages don’t rise with spiking oil prices, increasing debt can be used to hide the problem, at least temporarily. For example, cars and homes become less affordable with higher oil prices, since oil is used in making them. If governments can lower interest rates, monthly payments for new homes and cars can be lowered sufficiently that new car and home sales don’t fall too far. Eventually, this cover-up reaches limits. This happens when interest rates start turning negative, as they now are in some parts of the world.

Nothing to See Here: Mainstream Media Dismisses Concerns About Hillary Clinton’s Health Issues

In their usual fingers-in-ears-la-la-la fashion, the mainstream media and Hillary Clinton supporters are all in denial that there is an issue with the Democratic nominee’s health, despite mounting evidence that something is seriously wrong. In fact, they’re trying to manipulate the issue to make those who are concerned look like they are the ones with problems because only crazy right-wing conspiracy theorists would say otherwise.

More Guff From the Government : The Phony Job Recovery — Ron Paul

Until the notion that wealth and prosperity can come from a printing press is eradicated from the thinking of policymakers, economies around the world will remain mired in this malaise.

Is It Racist?

Leftists using the epithet racist to smear their enemies is nothing new. They have for years used the racist label to attack and neutralize conservative and libertarian opponents of various government programs and social movements. And they have generally been successful. It seems as though many Americans would rather be called anything but a racist and be accused of anything but racism. It has almost gotten to the point where racism is viewed as unfavorably as terrorism, genocide, starvation, torture, or Holocaust denial.

West On Edge As Erdogan Meets With Putin: "Turkey's Relations With The US Are The Worst In 50 Years"

The bad blood between Turkey and Russia over the November downing of a Russian fighter jet over Turkey is all but forgotten as Turkish president Recep Tayip Ergodan is to meet with “his friend” Vladimir Putin in the latter's home town of St. Petersburg in hopes of turning a fresh page in the two countries’ relations.

It will be their first meeting since diplomatic relations between the two nations turned icy cold late last year. In a slap to the face of its Western friends, as the FT puts it, instead of visiting a Nato ally, Erdogan's first trip abroad since surviving last month’s coup attempt the Turkish president is going to Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

‘Kill Russians and Iranians, threaten Assad,’ says ex-CIA chief backing Clinton

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell, who supports Hillary Clinton and insists that Donald Trump is being manipulated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that Russians and Iranians in Syria should be killed covertly to “pay the price.”

The ex-CIA chief, who worked with Clinton while she was secretary of state, told CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose that Iran and Russia should “pay a big price” in Syria – and by that he meant killing them.

Ready to restore ties: Putin, Erdogan revive economic plans, agree to Syria talks

Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan presented a united front at their first meeting since Turkey shot down a Russian plane last year, promising to rapidly rebuild a damaged economic relationship and find a new common policy for solving the Syrian conflict.

“We have gone through a very difficult moment in the relationship between our two countries, but now we would all like to overcome it in the interests of both our peoples,” said the Russian president during a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart in St. Petersburg.

“We want to restore our relationship not only for pragmatic reasons, but in the long-term interests of our countries, and for the sake of promoting good neighborly relations between Russians and Turks.”

9-minute video: Clinton ‘body count’ suspiciously increases by five in the last six weeks. What’s certain: Hillary is a War Criminal, rogue Secretary of State, and election fraud felon. Want all history-mysteries solved? Demand .01% arrests

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

TRUTHstreammedia’s strong 9-minutes (other documentation of three victims):

Assassination of political opponents is best demonstrated by the legal verdict of the King Family civil trial that found the US government guilty of Martin’s assassination (summary of evidence below, to make the point). The family’s analysis of motive was to stop Martin leading a million-person occupation of Washington, D.C. until his version of lie-started and illegal War of Aggression (Vietnam) was ended, and with those funds redirected to end domestic poverty (analysis here).

Another example is the assassination of President John Kennedy, who opposed the CIA, Federal Reserve, the oil oligarchy, and other top corporate oligarchs (overwhelming evidence of US government assassination of JFK here).

The gang culture in law enforcement is normal and they need to operate outside of the law in order to accomplish such a tough job.

One bug to rule them all: 'State-supported' Project Sauron malware attacks world's top PCs

Two top electronic security firms have discovered a new powerful malware suite being used to target just dozens of high-value targets around the world. The research shows that it was likely developed on the orders of a government engaging in cyber espionage.

The California-based Symantec has labeled the group behind the attack Strider, while Moscow-based Kaspersky Labs dubbed it ProjectSauron. Both are references to J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, a nod to the fact that the original malware code contained the word “Sauron.”

But behind the playful literary allusions is a powerful piece of software, capable of “harvesting” passwords on entire networks and “modules are designed to perform specific functions like stealing documents, recording keystrokes, and stealing encryption keys from both infected computers and attached USB sticks,” according to Kaspersky.

Another way to pick a candidate for your vote (if you are tired of voting for the lesser evil)

The first question to answer is whether you should bother voting at all, and the answer is, Yes, you should vote. If you don’t vote, then you abandon the playing field to the Furious Sheep who, being most easily manipulated, will hand an easy victory to the other side. And so the remaining question is, How should you vote to make the other side lose? This should not be regarded as a matter of personal choice; no need to concern yourself with who is the “lesser evil,” or which candidate made which meaningless promises. You will not be casting a vote for someone; you will be casting a vote against the entire process. Think of yourself as a soldier who volunteered in defense of liberty: you will simply be carrying out your orders. The charge has been laid by someone else; your mission, should you wish to accept it, is to light the fuse and walk away. This should at once motivate you to go and vote and make the voting process easy and stress-free. You are going to show up, subvert the dominant paradigm, and go watch the fireworks.

WikiLeaks: Alcohol Industry Bribed Congress To Denounce Cannabis

Newly leaked information reveals that officials in some of the top alcohol companies in America spent money on persuading members of Congress to pay attention to the alleged problem of “marijuana-impaired driving.” When one compares the effects of marijuana to alcohol, there really is no competition. To begin with, alcohol is responsible…

Wisconsin is one of many traditional Miskitu settlements active on ‘the frontier’ of Nicaragua’s northern Atlantic region. This particular settlement is about a five hour drive from the closest airport in Bilwi — provided one has access to a four wheel drive vehicle.

Democracy Is Dead

Globalists of all stripes are calling this nationalist revival narrow-minded and obscurantist. Their leading argument is that global problems such as climate change, overpopulation, and poverty require institutions with global authority. But what they should keep in mind is that those various supra-national institutions or entities, which started with stated good intentions, such as the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), not only have failed to solve any global problems but have, by their corrupt nature made them worse. In the case of the supra-national North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), there is no pretense of being a do-gooder. The armed fist of the Orwellian empire is in the business of globalization of war with decisions made in Washington, DC. In Orwellian times, many supra-national organizations behave like corporations under humanitarian pretenses, when they are in fact parasitic organisms depleting our strength. Meanwhile, no one represents We The People at all. In the world of humanitarianism for profit, public servants have vanished and been replaced by corrupt incompetent groups operating like crime families.

Leftists Vandalize Home, Spray-Paint Swastikas, Protest on Woman's Lawn Over Trump Signs

Criminals love Hillary Clinton and hate Donald Trump.

Yesterday, I brought you the story of a college girl who stole two Trump signs and afterward insisted it was some sort of "performance art." Today, we find another story where so-called "protesters" (see: criminals) felt it appropriate to protest on a woman's own lawn because she had some large Trump signs.

Other insane criminals in the neighborhood spray-painted one of her signs with a giant swastika and destroyed other parts of her property.

Obama’s GMO embarrassment: Why the new labeling bill just signed into law is a sham

It is known as the DARK Act — Denying Americans the Right to Know. It was signed by President Obama last week in the afterglow of the Democratic National Convention, without fanfare or major media coverage. The bill’s moniker is apt. With a few strokes of his pen Obama scratched out the laws of Vermont, Connecticut and Maine that required the labeling of genetically engineered foods.

He also nullified the GE seed labeling laws in Vermont and Virginia that allowed farmers to choose what seeds they wanted to buy and plant. And for good measure he preempted Alaska’s law requiring the labeling of any GE fish or fish product, passed to protect the state’s vital fisheries from contamination by recently approved genetically engineered salmon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, this legislation is a bloody sham; because at the end of the day, Obama is no less "owned" by Monsanto and the other GMO-creating companies than are prominent Republicans.

Can Clinton corner Condi, Kissinger?

As Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign reaches out to Republicans alarmed by Donald Trump's national security blunders, there’s a group of high-profile GOP hold-outs whose endorsement would be a major coup if the Democrat could win them over.

Condoleezza Rice, James Baker, George Shultz and Henry Kissinger are among a handful of so-called Republican “elders” with foreign policy and national security experience — people who have held Cabinet-level or otherwise high-ranking positions in past administrations — who have yet to come out for or against Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME, PARTICULARLY WITH RICE AND KISSINGER?!?

These people are both war criminals, with gallons of innocent blood on their hands, because of the wars on which they signed off.

But such seeking such endorsements makes one thing painfully clear about Hillary Clinton's campaign; if elected, she will seek more wars, and military solutions to geopolitical problems, than nearly any of her predecessors.

And for her, and people like her, it's always "other peoples' kids" who wind up getting killed and maimed for life,kin these wars for for private corporate profit, and insurance of the US dollar's hegemony.

CNN Host Slams Conservative Media For Allowing Trump’s Lies About ‘Rigged’ Election

Donald Trump, currently down in the polls, has taken to attacking the system.

In speech after speech, interview after interview, the Republican presidential nominee has claimed ? without providing a shred of evidence ? that the election is “rigged” against him.

It’s an absurd, incredibly dangerous argument to make, CNN’s Brian Stelter pointed out Sunday, adding that journalists must do a better job of questioning Trump about his claims.

“Interviewers, even ones who support the person they’re interviewing, have an obligation to probe further and push back when a candidate says something dangerous,” Stelter said. “And this is dangerous.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Brian Stelter: sir, it is obvious to thinking people, reading this, that you are suffering from an horrific case of SMD (selective memory disorder, and need to seek medical attention for this, stat!!

Do you not remember how the 2000 election was "awarded" to George Bush by the US Supreme Court, due to massive "voter irregularities", primarily in Florida?!?

Do you not remember the film "Recount", a dramatic interpretation of what happened during that election between Bush and Gore?!?

Have you never heard of an organisation called "www.blackboxvoting.org", or seen Bev Harris' documentary "Hacking Democracy"?!?

Are you singularly unaware that there has been a lawsuit filed in California, charging that Bernie Sanders won California by a landslide, but was marginalized due to poling places using provisional ballots, and electronic vote rigging?!?

Lawsuit Charging Bernie Sanders Actually Won California

Are you also unaware that election fraud also cost Sanders votes in Chicago?!?

Election Fraud Proven at Audit by Chicago BOE - flipped precinct by 18pts from Bernie to Hillary

Are you unfamiliar with voter fraud in Detroit, as documented in the National Review?!?

Vote Fraud in Detroit

Sir, the only people for whom calling out vote fraud in the US as "dangerous" are those whose successful candidacies relied upon such voting fraud.

This is a serious issue in US politics, and needs to be sorted.

Erik Prince: Hillary Clinton ‘Very Likely Caused’ Iranian Nuclear Scientist’s Death

Bannon asked if Hillary Clinton should be considered complicit in the execution of Iranian nuclear physicist Shahram Amiri, on charges of spying for the United States, who was discussed in some of the emails on Clinton’s unsecured private server.

“The physicist that came out, he defected, he was a treasure trove of information, but the CIA and the Clinton State Department botched it while he was in the States, left him pretty much unsupported,” Prince replied, calling it a major mistake to leave Amiri’s family in Iran.

“The second time he calls home, the Iranian intelligence service answers the phone. Undoubtedly, they leveraged him. When the guy talks about psychological trauma here in the United States, I’m sure it’s because the Iranians were telling him all the things they were going to do to his family if he didn’t come home,” said Prince.

MASS SHOOTINGS DRIVEN BY "MEDIA CONTAGION": STUDY

People who commit mass shootings in America tend to share three traits: rampant depression, social isolation, and pathological narcissism, according to a paper presented at the American Psychological Association’s annual convention that calls on the media to deny such shooters the fame they seek.

“Mass shootings are on the rise and so is media coverage of them,” said Jennifer B. Johnston of Western New Mexico University. “At this point, can we determine which came first? Is the relationship merely unidirectional: More shootings lead to more coverage? Or is it possible that more coverage leads to more shootings?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find this stand deliciously ironic, on the part of the APA, when solid evidence suggests that most of the shootings happened when these people were taking psychiatric drugs.

And of COURSE, the APA completely refuses to take responsibility for their involvement in this mess, even with an overwhelming preponderance of negative effects of these drugs writ large in manufacturers' information about them!

As reported at ccjrint.org:

35 School shooters/school related violence committed by those under the influence of psychiatric drugs

IF THE FACT NEOCONS ARE NOW SUPPORTING HILLARY CLINTON CONFUSES YOU, READ THIS

What’s a Neocon to do?

Bill Kristol is downright despondent after his failed search for an alternative to Donald Trump. Max Boot isindignant about his “stupid” party’s willingness to ride a bragging bull into a delicate China policy shop. And the leading light of the first family of military interventionism — Robert Kagan — is actually lining up Neoconservatives behind the Democratic nominee for president of the United States.

At the same time, the Democrats have become the party of bare-knuckled, full-throated American Exceptionalism. That transformation was announced with a vein-popping zeal by retired general and wannabe motivation screamer John Allen at the Democratic convention in the City of Brotherly Love. During his “speech,” a few plaintive protests of “no more war” were actually drowned-out by Democrats chanting “USA-USA-USA!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all of his "blunt instrument" candor, Trump is emerging, ironically, as the "peace candidate" in this election.

Clinton is the poster child for both the military-industrial complex and Wall Street; she has never met a potential military solution to a geopolitical problem she didn't love, and is thoroughly in bed with those multinational corporations which support her campaign, and will insist on more offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs under her watch.

And no matter how carefully her handlers try to "groom" her public demeanor, to get her to appear as though she might possibly give a damn about We the People, at the end of the day, what we have in her candidacy is a candidacy for herself and the 1%.

So a vote for Hillary Clinton this November will be a vote for more wars; more income inequality, and the complete train-wreck, destruction of what we used to call "The American Dream."

CHICAGO COPS SWITCHED OFF BODYCAMS AND HIGH-FIVED AFTER SHOOTING UNARMED BLACK TEEN

The Chicago Independent Police Review Authority has released a video showing the aftermath of the July 28 police shooting of an unarmed black man, in which the officers checked to ensure that their body-cameras were switched off and then gave each other high fives.

18-year-old Paul O'Neal was killed after allegedly crashing a stolen Jaguar into two Chicago police officers. Officers claimed to have shot at him "at least five times" (the actual number of shots was 15). Some officers believed that O'Neal had fired upon them. He was unarmed.

The three officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.

CBS Chicago's Charlie De Mar saw the video and reported that it shows one officer high fiving another before saying "F***, I’m going to be on desk duty now for 30 days"; and one officer saying to another, "Make sure this (body-camera) is off."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, it was profoundly stupid of this kid, stealing the Jag.

However, that having been said, the extrajudicial assassinations of young African-American men by Chicago police continues, unabated, in Rahm Emanuel's Chicago.

And to residents of Chicago, and beyond, who are going to demonstrate against police brutality, please remember to do this peacefully; there is nothing this administration would love to see happen domestically right now than riots in our streets, to give it the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, invoke martial law, and suspend November's elections.

FLORIDA SPRAYING RESIDENTS WITH NEUROTOXIC PESTICIDE BANNED IN OTHER COUNTRIES TO COMBAT ZIKA

Areas of Miami, Florida, are now being sprayed with the insecticide naled in an attempt to eradicate the Aedes aegypti mosquito — carrier of the zika virus. Naled, a potent neurotoxin that kills mosquitoes on contact, is perfectly safe, or so the Environmental Protection Agency insists, despite Puerto Rico’s rejection of its use to combat the spread of zika there — due to concerns about its safety.

To keep naled airborne where it would be most effective, the agent is sprayed in very fine aerosol droplets — about two tablespoons can be dispersed to cover an area the equivalent of two football fields, a local CBS affiliate reported.

If a ‘far greater’ amount of naled were employed, according to the Florida Department of Health, ‘it could cause a person to salivate more, feel numbness, headaches, dizziness, tremors, nausea, abdominal cramps, sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing and a slowed heartbeat.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can find the toxic effects of this pesticide here, in a profile from Cornell University:

Toxic Effects of Naled

Of course, the people living in the areas affected by the Zika virus are some of Florida's poorest of Florida's poor, so the state doesn't really give a rat's anus about their safety and well being; they only want to be perceived, politically, as "doing something" to alleviate the problem.

5 EXPLOSIVE SECRET INTELLIGENCE MEMOS ON LIBYA EVERYONE MUST READ [VIDEO]

Libya is a mess following the western military intervention that started in 2011. We were told it was necessary because there’s an evil dictator who had to be taken out as he was massacring his own people. But is that really why we went to war with Libya?
Muammar Gaddafi did have much blood on his hands – from the so-called Toyota War (or Chadian-Libyan conflict) to taking responsibility for Lockerbie. Not to mention his handy role in George W. Bush’s extraordinary rendition program.

Gaddafi was an interventionist who favoured shady backroom deals and covert action, as well as support of proxies abroad to accomplish his goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary's push for military intervention in Libya is directly responsible for its failed state status today.

Yes, there is power in destruction, as in her statement, regarding Qaddafi, "We came, we saw, he died!!" you can see the video here:

Hillary Clinton being interviewed regarding the assassination of Qaddafi

But as Secretary of State, she had utterly no long-term thinking, or plan, about what was to come next, and what would be for the good of the Libyan people in the long run.

And this is the scariest thing about Hillary Clinton's "thought process", if in fact, she has one; she is only concerned for achieving an immediate, specific goal, but is pathologically incapable of thinking for one millisecond beyond that as to what happens next.

And THIS was the best the Democratic Party can do for the American people, as a candidate this year?

The same Party that nominated John F. Kennedy for President in the 60s?!?

Not that Kennedy was without flaws, but he had the intellectual capability of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion, which is why he was able to successfully get the Russians to blink and back off during the Cuban missile crisis.

PRECRIME: MI5 ‘MIND READING UNIT’ FOILS POTENTIAL TERRORIST ATTACKS

Up to seven potential terror attacks across Britain have been uncovered and stopped over the past year by a special MI5 unit which reads the minds of would-be attackers, the agency says.

MI5's Behavioural Science Unit (BSU), made up of criminologists, psychologists and other academics, was launched in 2004 to analyse suspects’ behaviours to determine whether they are about to carry out an attack.

According to Neil, an Arabic and Norwegian speaker who has worked for the unit for six years, “it takes some doing to go from talking about carrying out a violent act like killing to actually doing it.”

Neil says the assumption that many extremists have mental health problems is wrong.

“Only two percent of members of terrorist organisations suffer from mental health problems, compared with an average of up to 30 percent of members of the public,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but in my world, wanting to harm or murder people who are, most likely unable to fix the geopolitical problems which get people radicalized in the first place, is, in and of itself, a form of mental illness!!

Bomb Kills Dozens as Pakistani Lawyers Stage Protest at Hospital

At least 54 people were killed on Monday in the restive Pakistani city of Quetta when an explosion, apparently caused by a suicide bomber, struck a hospital where dozens of lawyers had gathered to condemn the killing of a prominent colleague.

Officials in the southwestern city said that at least 50 people were wounded, most of them critically, and that the death toll was likely to rise.

Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan, a province bordering Afghanistan and Iran that has been a center separatist and sectarian violence for more than a decade. Much of the violence in Quetta has come from sectarian extremist groups that have targeted Hazaras, a mostly Shiite ethnic minority that makes up a large part of Quetta’s population.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Pakistani government appears to be absolutely impotent to stop this madness, and perhaps that is the point the jihadists here want to make; that the Pakistani government is no longer in control.

Unfortunately, hatred and killing only begets more hatred and killing; not love, dialogue, or a common understanding which can nurture the future.
