The walking dead: Obamacare

Nearly every promise Obama made about Obamacare has turned out to be a flat-out lie. Both Congress and the courts have failed to stop the monster. Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has already promised to feed the beast, should she win in November. As voters, we have the weapons at our disposal to dispatch it once and for all. It’s up to us, kids. Kill Obamacare, or we’ll all be either walking or dead.

The Shameful Foundation of the Clintons' Power

The stated mission of the Clinton Foundation, set up at the end of Bill Clinton's second term in the White House, is to "alleviate poverty, improve global health, strengthen economies, and protect the environment."

But far more important to its operations is the Clinton Foundation's unstated mission: to further entrench the already formidable power of the Clinton family.

For more than two decades, both Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have lived very public lives ensconced in the upper echelons of America's political establishment. Since its founding in 2001, the Clinton Foundation served as a bridge between Bill Clinton's administration and Hillary Clinton's drive to conquer the White House again.

Sheriff Glenn Palmer makes his own rules in Grant County

The Oregonian is going after this Sheriff because he supports the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution in general,but mainly because they see him as friendly to freedom! The Oregonian is absolutely the dregs. As biased as Huff and Puffpo!

Over 16 years, Palmer has used his position in ways big and small to further a personal agenda – from allowing his own needs to trump emergencies to directing his patrol staff to ignore violations of laws governing private gun sales. He has drawn a fervent following by repeatedly challenging federal authority over forestlands.

CTM #588 Bin Laden Raid and the loss of SEAL Team 6 member Michael Strange

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The claim that Osama bin Laden died in Abbotabad has been discredited. The follow-up story is how the members of Seal Team 6, which had raided that house and knew the truth about what had happened, quickly died shortly thereafter.

Fighter jets from the Saudi-led coalition hit the Yemeni capital of Sanaa during a massive rally that attracted some 100,000 pro-Houthi rebels and sympathizers of ex-President Abdullah Saleh.

Tens of thousands of people rallied in Sanaa’s central square on Saturday in a powerful display of support for the Shiite Houthi rebels and Saleh. Demonstrators cheered a recently established Supreme Political Council that includes representatives of the Houthi movement, as well as supporters of Saleh.

The huge gathering also denounced Saleh’s successor, Mansur Hadi, who fled the country last year and is seeking reinstatement with military backing from Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US-enabled Saudi military continues to commit horrific war crimes, and apparently, the US government and military is just fine with it; for them, the end - the reinstatement of the Al-Hadi government - justifies the means, which has generally translated into the slaughter of civilians

I never imagined, in my wildest dreams, as I was growing up, that some day, the United States of America could ultimately be characterised as follows:

"The United States of America: a proud partner in war crimes!"

To the people of Yemen: the people of the United States have utterly no control over the government which allegedly represents them.

And to the Saudi Government, the House of Saud, and the Saudi military, I would like to share the following quote from the Qur'an: Chapter 17, Verse 7":

"If you do good, you do good to yourselves. (likewise)
If you do evil, you do evil to yourselves."

You are NOT on the right side of history with this war, and do NOT have the high moral ground.

The effort kicked off this last semester at six California campuses, including UCLA, UC Irvine and San Jose State University, and will expand to 20 more college campuses this fall.

The Adelsons and other supporters of Israel are alarmed by the precipitous growth in young Americans’ support for Palestinians. A Pew Research Center poll in May found that 27% of millennials now sympathize more with Palestinians, up from 9% in 2006 — while their generation’s support for Israel has declined in the same period from 51% to 43%.

A main cause, Israel supporters say, is the mushrooming BDS campus movement. In the last four years, student governments at eight of nine UC undergraduate campuses have voted to support the campaign.

“It’s the No. 1 nonmilitary threat to Israel and the Jewish people,” David Brog, executive director of the new Adelson-funded task force, said of BDS. “Our goal is to change the younger generation from neutral, if not opposed to, Israel to support of Israel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I rather pity Mr. Adelson, in this quixotic exercise; because, and particularly through the independent media, the truth will out.

Because the cold, stark reality, of what Israel has become in the 21st century, is a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons.

Fact: Israel imprisons Palestinian children for crimes they may not have committed:

The Palestinian children – alone and bewildered – in Israel's Al Jalame jail

Palestine: Israeli Police Abusing Detained Children

Number of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons soars

Fact: Israel consistently throws Palestinians out of their homes to give the homes to Israeli settlers.

Israeli police evict Palestinian family from East Jerusalem home, give property to settlers for new settlement

Israel’s Land Grab in East Jerusalem

Israel to demolish 14 Palestinian homes to expand settlements

3. Settlers routinely attack Palestinian homes, injuring or killing the residents, and rarely are charges filed against them.

Israeli settlers attack West Bank farms

Settlers attack West Bank farmer twice a week

Jordan Valley settlers farm private Palestinian land while owners are barred from entering - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2013/01/settlers-palestinian-entering/#sthash.F9TyZUIq.dpuf

4. The IDF routinely shoots, wounds, and kills Palestinians against whom no charges have been filed.

Palestinian youth was shot 9 times ‘accidentally,’ Israeli army says

Rare indictment against IDF soldiers for killing Palestinian minor

12-yo Palestinian boy killed during clashes with Israeli troops near Jerusalem

I didn't have to "cherry pick" these headlines; they tumbled out of my search engine, with an astonishing, and awful, velocity.

And unless Adelson is able to change the behaviour of Israel, to prevent these atrocities from happening, then the BDF movement is going to pick up velocity, and mass, until Israel will have virtually no trading partners, and no people, or entities, willing to invest in Israel, whatsoever.

Israel's problem here is that it is the behaviour of the Israeli government and military which has created BDS.

Chicago's Experiment In Predictive Policing Isn't Working

Struggling to reduce its high murder rate, the city of Chicago has become an incubator for experimental policing techniques. Community policing, stop and frisk, "interruption" tactics --- the city has tried many strategies. Perhaps most controversial and promising has been the city's futuristic "heat list" -- an algorithm-generated list identifying people most likely to be involved in a shooting.

The hope was that the list would allow police to provide social services to people in danger, while also preventing likely shooters from picking up a gun. But a new report from the RAND Corporation shows nothing of the sort has happened. Instead, it indicates that the list is, at best, not even as effective as a most wanted list. At worst, it unnecessarily targets people for police attention, creating a new form of profiling.

The prosecution of current and former state of Michigan employees for their role in Flint’s lead-contaminated water crisis likely will face an early test over whether one of the most serious charges can even be levied against the middle- and lower-level government officials.
All eight workers charged so far, five from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and three with the Department of Health and Human Services, face a misconduct in office charge — a felony that can carry a five-year prison term. The cases are in the early stages of prosecution.

But there is no statute clearly defining official misconduct. Rather, it is a common law offense based on judicial decisions and a doctrine whose origins trace back centuries to England.

The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled that misconduct in office applies only to “public officers,” not all government workers.

One of the worst drug disasters in history is unfolding right before our eyes.

DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen that was given to pregnant women from 1940 through the early 1970s. DES was touted as a “wonder drug” that would prevent miscarriage and morning sickness. It was only after millions of women and fetuses were exposed to DES that it was recognized that DES was causing deadly cancers in both the women who took it and the children exposed to it in-utero. According to The Wonder Drug Movie, a documentary about DES:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: when a doctor is propagandized that something is great for their patients, and most probably will cause no irrevocable harm, they are brainwashed into believing it, because of their background, and only know about that drug from the circulars handed to them by very attractive pharmaceutical representatives.

Pharmaceutical companies are generally headed by people whose conscience has been surgically removed, and where the watchwords are "Profits Uber Alles."

So when you see an advert on TV about some product, but then hear the horrific potential side effects, usually at the end of the commercial, ask yourself; where will this product be in 20 years?!?

Obamacare has gone from the President's greatest achievement to a 'slow motion death spiral'

It has not been a good week for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as Obamacare.

A slew of news, from insurers dropping out to possible fraud among healthcare providers, has all accumulated in a deluge of negative headlines for one of President Obama's signature law.

In fact, it's gotten so bad that it appears that the whole program itself may be in doubt.

Judge seeks criminal contempt charges against Sheriff Joe Arpaio

So far, Arpaio hasn't commented on Snow's latest order.

"Today is a vindication," said Roberto Reveles, founding president of Somos America, one of the plaintiff organizations in the case. "No one is above the law, and we all have to be believers in the rule of law."

It would appear that, soon, we shall not be able to say certain things without someone being offended and fifteen hours of groveling apologies will be necessary (and not accepted without accompanying checks, cash, and money orders) in order to appease the angry watchdogs of political ultra-correctness. I would guess we shall have to delete an entire color from the English lexicon to ensure that word isn’t accidently applied to phrases that might offend someone. I have no idea how this all manifested, but it is rather tiresome, to say the least. However, I have a pretty good idea as to where it might have begun.

If you don't believe in global warming, you're too 'mentally ill' to be allowed to buy a gun, says Obama

In recent days, President Obama announced new "executive actions" on guns, that included language to shore up current federal law aimed at keeping mentally ill Americans from buying guns. Some skeptics of the president's actions believe that, as is usually the case, there are ulterior motives behind his actions.

For example, some believe that the president's order may include guidance on declaring people who disagree with Obama's policies – like those regarding so-called "global warming" and "climate change" – as mentally unstable.

German Anti-Immigrant Party Leader Urges People To Arm Themselves

"People no longer feel safe, otherwise they would not be buying so many products here," a seller in North-Rhine Westphalia told Deutsche Welle in January, adding that like many of his colleagues, he has been moving "an average of three times as many alarm, gas, and signal guns as he was prior to the attacks that took place in Cologne on New Year's Eve."

Since then, the situation in Germany - and across Western Europe - has only grown more perilous, as a result of three ISIS-inspired fatal attacks by refugees over the past several weeks, which has led to not only the most recent collapse in the polls of Angela Merkel but the ongoing ascent of Germany's anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sure as heck wouldn't want to be Angela Merkel right now; her enabling of this catastrophe has made her kryptonite to the German electorate.

Leaked Memo Proves Soros Ruled Ukraine In 2014: Minutes From "Breakfast With US Ambassador Pyatt"

We noted in a previous post how important Ukraine was to George Soros, with documents from DC Leaks that show Soros, and his Open Society NGO, scouring the Greek media and political landscape to push the benefits of his Ukraine coup upon a Russian leaning Greek society.

Now more documents, in the massive 2,500 leaked tranche, show the immense power and control Soros had over Ukraine immediately following the illegal Maidan government overthrow.

Soros and his NGO executives held detailed and extensive meetings with just about every actor involved in the Maidan coup: from US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt, to Ukraine’s Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Justice, Health, and Education.

The only person missing was Victoria Nuland, though we are sure those meeting minutes are waiting to see the light of day.

More than half of Clinton Foundation’s major donors would be barred under new rule

More than half of the Clinton Foundation’s major donors would be prevented from contributing to the charity under the self-imposed ban on corporate and foreign donors the foundation said this week it would adopt if Hillary Clinton won the White House, according to a new Washington Post analysis of foundation donations.

The findings underscore the extent to which the Clintons’ sprawling global charity has come to rely on financial support from industries and overseas interests, a point that has drawn criticism from Republicans and some liberals who have said the donations represent conflicts of interest for a potential president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but didn't Clinton vow to do this upon becoming the US's Secretary of State, if I recall correctly?!?

The major corporations love war, and Hillary will deliver them war.

And the country of Saudi Arabia wants military equipment, but still jails, chemically castrates, and executes its LGBTQ citizens, while allowing the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.

Nice company she keeps, through this foundation, doesn't she?!?

German town cancels Palestinian children’s drawings exhibit for ‘highly political content

A Palestinian exhibition portraying life and destruction in Gaza was canceled by authorities in the German town of Heidelberg over “crossing a political red line.” The organizers have expressed fury about the move.

The exhibition, held under the guise of a pro-Palestinian group, “Palästina-/Nahost-Initiative” was canceled shortly before it was due to start on August 10, RNZ newspaper reports.

Entitled "Experiences, Fears and Dreams – Children in Palestine," the event was supposed to host drawings from two rehabilitation centers in Gaza and Ramallah. Some of the pieces showed explosions, burning cities and soldiers with assault rifles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That these children have actually lived through explosions, burning cities and soldiers with assault rifles, is apparently irrelevant!

Syrian regime jets hit Kurdish positions, even after US warning

Syrian regime jets pounded US-backed Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria for a second day, even after the US-led coalition scrambled jets to protect its military advisers working on the ground.

In another escalation of Syria's bloody conflict, warplanes from President Bashar al-Assad's regime were bombarding the city of Hasakeh -- targeting Kurdish forces that for months have worked closely with coalition military advisers helping local fighters combat the Islamic State group.

On Thursday, the United States sent fighter jets to head off air strikes conducted by regime planes and to protect coalition advisers, but the Syrian planes had left by the time they arrived.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that I have to, once again, politely remind the US government and military that the Sovereign Country of Syria does not have to do ANYTHING the US government or military orders them to do, because it is THEIR COUNTRY, and not ours.

Russia was invited to take care of the jihadists by Syrian President al-Assad; the US government has not been invited to do so.

All the Critics Who Bashed “Hillary’s America” Documentary Might Want To See This Fact…

Since the public release of the film on July, 22nd it has received mass amounts of attention, accompanied by mixed reviews.

For example, the film only received a 4% rating by the film critics on Rotten Tomatoes. But it received an 84% positive response in audience reviews.

Despite all this, the film has had groundbreaking results. According to The Hollywood Reporter, D’Souza’s film has become the highest-grossing documentary of 2016. Just five days after its release, the documentary made over $5 million.

What have they done to Ryan Bundy?

Ryan Bundy is being tortured. Multnomah County jail is notorious for dead and injured inmates!

Ryan Bundy is in Solitary Confinement until after his trial. This means that he will have limited opportunities to prepare for defending his freedom. How did this happen?

The FBI agents are already under investigation for lying during that incident. They claimed that they did not fire their weapons. However, it has been shown that there were two bullet casings that were illegally removed from the scene. All of OSP’s shots have been accounted for, therefore the shots seem to have come from the FBI.

Bundy has maintained that he does not give permission to State or Federal authorities to remove the evidence from his arm. He has said that he is willing to have it removed, however, he has certain conditions under which he will agree, including having an independent forensic analysis done. The Federal authorities refuse these terms.

Publicly Funded NPR Follows the Left’s Lead, Closes Comments Sections

Publicly funded National Public Radio has announced that it will be closing its comments sections in a bid to “move the conversation to social media,” following the lead of many left-wing news sites in doing so.
In a blog post by NPR public editor Elizabeth Jensen, she said that although the decision is “sure to upset a loyal core of its audience,” the company would now prefer to “let social media pick up the slack.”

Scott Montgomery, the managing editor for NPR digital news cited the reason for the move as the company’s need to engage more in social media, saying that NPR has “reached the point where we’ve realized that there are other, better ways to achieve the same kind of community discussion around the issues we raise in our journalism.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In this move, NPR has completely destroyed what little legitimacy it has left.

The endlessly increasing vaccine push on the public, at the behest of pharmaceutical companies, can be looked at as nothing more than a psychological operation (PSYOP). From the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) comes the 2016 "Best Practice Guidance 1st Edition: How to Respond to Vocal Vaccine Deniers in Public". From this guide parents and communities will understand how to see through the simplistic messaging maneuvers and counter the ongoing public PSYOP. The WHO's guiding document opens on page one with the following statement:

"This guidance document provides basic broad principles for a spokesperson of any health authority on how to respond to vocal vaccine deniers.The suggestions are based on psychological research on persuasion, on research in public health, communication studies and on WHO risk
communication guidelines."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no science denier, or anti-vaxxer; having said that, however, I have found some very effective ways of enhancing my wellness which do not involve conventional medical treatment.

Trust me; I would never be a Christian Scientist with appendicitis; but understanding something about nutrition and wellness has kept me in reasonably good shape, at 67, which is a real gift at this age.

I would encourage all of our readers to do the due dilligence, and educate themselves about the power of nutrition to augment health.

When I have friends locally who have just had a really lousy health diagnosis, I encourage them to have a nutritional consult at a medical center under 7th-Day Adventist management.

As ovolacto-vegetarians, these people have health statistics that are, generally, off the chart, in terms of great health outcomes. They have learned to use food as a weapon against disease, and they have my complete and utter respect for having done so.

The escalating anti-Russian rhetoric in the U.S. presidential campaign comes in the midst of a major push by military contractors to position Moscow as a potent enemy that must be countered with a drastic increase in military spending by NATO countries.

Weapon makers have told investors that they are relying on tensions with Russia to fuel new business in the wake of Russian’s annexation of Crimea and modest increases in its military budget.

In particular, the arms industry — both directly and through its arsenal of hired-gun, think-tank experts and lobbyists – is actively pressuring NATO member nations to hike defense spending in line with the NATO goal for member states to spend at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1. Russia did not annex Crimea; after the putsch in Kiev in 2014, which threw Yanukovich, the duly elected President, under the proverbial bus, and anointed Poroshenko as Ukraine's President, Crimean authorities understood that there was no legitimate government in Kiev. They therefore held a free and fair referendum, to decide if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, post putsch, or petition the Russian Federation to join. In an overwhelming vote, Crimeans decided to to petition the Russian Federation to join. The Russian Federation accepted this request. Russia did absolutely nothing wrong here.
2. It is very alarming, but perfectly predictable to me, that weapons manufacturers and banks can smell money in the bloodshed which is almost surely to come from any kind of US/Russian military conflict regarding Ukraine, as the demonisation of Russia, which you see in all the presstitute/whorespondent outlets, continues to escalate.

Jeffrey Sterling, one of the most recent victims of the U.S. government’s war on whistleblowers, may be at risk of dying in a Colorado prison.

In an interview published Tuesday in The Colorado Independent, the wife of the CIA whistleblower warned that his health is failing due to inadequate medical care at FCI Englewood, the federal prison where he is serving a sentence of three-and-a-half years.

“I’m concerned my husband may die,” Holly Sterling told the Independent’s Corey Hutchins. “I’m extremely concerned.”In May 2015, Jeffrey Sterling was convicted on nine felony charges, including seven charges of violating the Espionage Act, for revealing information about Operation Merlin, a secret CIA operation carried out under President Bill Clinton to undermine Iran’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sterling's death, through neglect, is the Federal Government's desired outcome here, as a vicious example for others who may feel morally compelled to speak out regarding the cost/benefit relationship of various of its programs.

It is no accident that for the organisation "Reporters Without Borders", the US ranks as 41st in terms of press freedoms out of 180 countries which comprise their list.

"At this point, the American people and Congress are owed answers."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aug 20 08:25


The Portland Public School Board voted earlier this year to ban any classroom materials, including textbooks and other material purchased by the district, that cast doubt on the existence of climate change.

This new rule was passed unanimously by the board’s members, who agreed with testimony from Bill Bigelow, a former Portland teacher, when he said,

“We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”

Materials that present climate change as a theory rather than as a fact will no longer be used and, going forward, they will not be purchased by the district for students. Additionally, materials must make it clear that human activity is responsible for the rapid climate change occurring on our planet. The resolution also calls for the superintendent and staff to develop an education plan for teaching students about climate justice.

A student of Lincoln High School, Gaby Lemieux, said in testimony at the hearing,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I understand that we have to mandate the companies which produce fossil fuel to become as environmentally friendly as possible.

But we cannot stop there; the US government has got to send one little slice of the money it spends on its wars of conquest to control fossil fuel resources to create truly usable alternative energy; the kind of energy which can power a tank, or fly a plane.

That would be both logical and intelligent.

But the people desirous of banning books which don't spew the codswallop of human caused global warming are missing one critical fact; how hot, or how cold, the earth gets is primarily dependent on the sun, and it's cycles.

The predictions for winter 2016-2017 from the Old Farmer's Almanac (which has an annoying reputation for being generally correct), are as follows.

Get ready for a shift from last year! For the winter of 2016–2017, we expect temperatures to be much colder than last winter but still above normal. Winter 2017 will also feature below-normal snowfall overall; the snowy exception is the northern tier of the U.S., which can expect to be blanketed in white. Winter will be colder in much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation. Exceptions will be in a swatch from North Dakota to Maine, which will have below-normal temperatures. Most of the Pacific states will have below-normal temperatures, with above-normal temperatures in the Intermountain region and Desert Southwest. Snowfall will be above normal from southern New England and western New York southward through the Appalachians, but not in northern New England. Snowfall with also be above what’s typical from eastern Minnesota to the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan and southward to St. Louis, Missouri; and from central North Dakota westward to the Pacific. We expect below-normal snowfall in most other places that normally receive snow. Precipitation will be below normal across most of the southern two-thirds of the nation. However, precipitation will be above normal in the North, with the primary exceptions being above-normal rainfall in northern California, southern Oregon, portions of the western Lower Lakes region, and Florida. With rainfall below normal in most of California, the drought there will continue. In Canada, brace for more snow and colder-than-average temperatures throughout most parts of the country. The exceptions to the winter of white will be Manitoba, portions of Saskatchewan, and northern sections across the land. While snowfall will generally be below normal in these areas, temperatures will remain chilly

Frankly, with an 80% success rate in their predictions over the last 225 years, I would more likely place my bets on this than ANYTHING the "Warmistas" have to say.

Election Justice USA finds that Bernie Sanders lost an estimated 184 delegates to Election Fraud

We have aimed to provide an overview of the evidence for various types of fraud and targeted voter suppression impacting the outcomes of the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries. After covering the legal background and the history of Election Justice USA’s legal actions, our best efforts to combat election fraud and voter suppression, we gave a thorough treatment of:

1) Targeted voter suppression

2) Registration tampering

3) Illegal voter purges

4) Exit polling discrepancies

5) Evidence for voting machine tampering

6) The security (or lack thereof) of various voting machine types

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The leaked DNC emails confirm the Democratic Party leadership aided and abetted Hillary's theft. And if they did it to the voters in the primaries, they are planning to do it again in November.

If a government cannot prove the honesty and accuracy of the elections by which they claim authority over the people, then the people are neither legally nor morally obligated to obey that government's dictates nor to pay its bills nor to send their children to die in that government's wars, and may with full moral justification resist with lethal force efforts to coerce said dictatorship, looting, and conscription.

Gang members chanted “black lives matter” as they viciously beat up a white victim in Charleston as part of an initiation ritual, a story that has received no national media attention.

In a video posted on Facebook, Brandon Reiter relates how he was driving home before picking someone up to “help them get home”.

A woman was “frantically waving her arms on the side of the road” and Reiter offered her a ride, reports Counton2.com.

When he arrived at the destination, Reiter’s passenger stole the tip money he had on his counter and when Reiter exited the vehicle, he was immediately surrounded by two black men and had a gun put to his head.

A member of the gang known as “Blue” ordered the other gang member to shoot Reiter, before Reiter was able to snatch the gun away and run back to his truck

However, other members of the gang were waiting for him and subjected Reiter to a brutal beat down that was part of a gang initiation ritual.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How very charming.

Reiter is damned lucky to be alive.

And I can thoroughly understand why there was no major whorespondent or presstitute coverage of the incident, and that is it does not fit the narrative of white on black crime.

Rothschild Warns “Biggest Financial Experiment in History” About to Unleash Consequences Unknown

Why Rothschild is Shifting From US Dollars to Gold, 'Other Currencies'

Rothschild has called attention to the fact that despite the policy having resulted in the rapid rise of stock markets, this growth cannot last forever as the real sector remains anemic with weak demand and deflation in many developed countries.

Meanwhile, the geopolitical situation is not getting easier: China's economic growth has slowed down, the election atmosphere in the US remains fraught and the conflict in the Middle East continues to rage on. Germany, France and the US have been subjected to terrorist attacks. To complicate matters even further the UK voted to leave the EU.

"In times like these, preservation of capital in real terms continues to be as important an objective as any in the management of your Company's assets," Lord Rothschild emphasizes.

US-Mexico Border Agents Stop 1000s Of Middle-East Immigrants With Forged Papers

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexican immigration officials have found thousands of non-Hispanic illegal immigrants crossing Mexico’s southern border to make their way to Texas. As Breitbart details, the so-called "extra-continental" immigrants enter countries as far south as Brazil and make their way to the United States, often with forged travel documents.

“The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border,” a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week. The Reuters article confirmed the Syrian nationals reported at the Mexican border with Laredo last year by Breitbart Texas’s Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz are part of this growing pattern of illegal migration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How safe do you feel, understanding what those numbers mean to our security?!?

Frankly, were I living in the US, and particularly in the Southwest border states, I wouldn't feel very secure at all.

3-minute video: Hillary’s 2002 Senate speech of KNOWN LIES pimping OBVIOUS illegal War of Aggression on Iraq for OIL (Operation Iraqi Liberation); cackling about it in 2014: Don’t vote for her, demand her arrest

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

This article will explain, document, and prove that Hillary Clinton pimped an obviously illegal War of Aggression on Iraq in 2002 as US Senator, with lies known to be false as they were told, and is one of the .01% US "leaders" guilty of ongoing War Crimes requiring her arrest.

Maurice Lawerence’s sharp 3-minutes of Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton cackling in 2014 about her “hard choice” of 2002 as Senator to authorize illegal War of Aggression on Iraq, with 2011 video as Secretary of State “excited” about Iraq as a business opportunity (graphic images):

In 2003, OIL (Operation Iraqi Liberation) was the official name of what the US was doing in Iraq, as Mugsys RapSheet’s 1-minute video reminds us:

Israelis Scheming to Replace Aqsa Mosque with ‘Third Temple’: Report

The Palestinian-run International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) independent news organization carried the report on Monday, citing Israeli television channels.

Israeli Zionists claim they have the right to build a third temple in line with “scriptural prophecies” to follow the tradition of the first and second ones built in ancient times.

Back in June, Israeli Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Uri Ariel said “the first temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, the second temple in 70 CE,” adding that he wished to see a third one built.

The Israeli media, IMEMC reported, alleged that the Israeli bodies favoring the construction of the temple had received “wide political and popular support.”

These organizations explained that they are ready to bring the equipment and tools to start building the temple in the place of both the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque,” it added, citing Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any attempt to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque will result in utter catastrophe for Israel, and generate a religious war which will engulf the entire region.

But perhaps, that is the design intent of the current Israeli government.

Closing Manus Island’s Detention Centre: Australia’s Search for “Alternative Cruelties”

It all goes back to April, when the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court found the Manus Island detention facility, ostensibly directed and run by the Australian government, in breach of the PNG Constitution.

By the order of the court, “Both the Australian and Papua New Guinea governments shall forthwith take all steps necessary to cease and prevent the continued unconstitutional and illegal detention of the asylum seekers or transferees at the relocation centre on Manus Island and the continued breach of the asylum seekers or transferees constitutional and human rights.”

Unfortunately, Australian officials and law enforcement authorities across various states have shown a certain enthusiasm, even hunger, for youth detention. In the Northern Territory and Queensland, instances of brutality against juveniles in detention centres have been common and publicised of late. The zeitgeist is very much against the child in such instances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I keep wondering why the government of Australia is not working together with international adoption agencies which could, at least, give some of the children an option for a better life.

I do not at all have any resonance with the concept that illegal immigrant children should be made to "suffer" for the sins of their parents; I really thought Australia was better than this.

Ukraine may impose martial law if eastern fighting worsens: Poroshenko

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Thursday he did not rule out introducing martial law and a new wave of military mobilisation if the conflict with pro-Russian separatists worsened. Poroshenko made his comments as fresh tension with Russia over Crimea reignited fears that a fragile ceasefire deal hammered out in the Belarussian capital Minsk in February 2015 could collapse following the deadliest month of fighting in a year. “If the situation escalates in the east and in Crimea we don’t rule out the possibilities (that) we will be forced to introduce martial law and announce a (further) mobilisation,” Poroshenko said in a televised speech from the western Lviv region. Poroshenko did not make clear what introduction of martial law might mean, and whether he was talking about martial law in the whole country or only in some parts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Poroshenko is expecting a revolt from within Ukraine with which to move him out of power, and thinks martial law will be the tool for preventing that.

That is why he is pounding on alleged "Russian aggression" as the potential justification for declaring martial law.

US Targeted Killing Rules Conflate Legality and Politics

The Presidential Policy Guidance would sanction targeting a person who poses a "continuing, imminent threat," not just to "U.S. persons," but also to "another country's persons." A 2011 Department of Justice (DOJ) white paper, leaked in 2013, said that a US citizen can be killed even when there is no "clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future." This makes a mockery of the "imminence" requirement. The administration presumably sets an even lower bar for non-citizens.

There must also be "near certainty that an identified HVT [high-value terrorist] or other lawful terrorist target" is present before using lethal force against him. Yet the administration engages in "signature strikes" that don't necessarily target individuals but rather target all males of military age present in an area of suspicious activity. And the Presidential Policy Guidance does not define "high-value terrorist."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This legalistic mishmash has been engineered as "window-dressing" for the hard fact that this process has utterly no true relationship to the Law of this Land, which is very firmly routed in the concept of due process, and is denied all victims of extrajudicial assassinations.

And I have to speculate here; how long will it be before these tortured rationales lead to extrajudicial assassinations right here at home?!?

Unfortunately, were I a betting person, the short answer would be, "Not long!!"

Congress Seeks to Establish Russia as Permanent Enemy

The Cold War provided a solid generation of unfettered government growth in the US on the pretext of the Russian threat, and over the past few years American officials have relished at the new round of tensions with Russia, and the budget-busting spending it has permitted.

They’re hoping to make that permanent, with a new bill called the STAND for Ukraine Act aiming to make temporary measures imposed during Ukraine’s regime change permanent, and hamstring all future governments from a diplomatic rapprochement with Russia.

The new push centers in part on the fear that some future president might be less on-board with open-ended hostilities. Current Republican nominee Donald Trump has expressed doubt about the current acrimony, and said if elected he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW! We know there was trouble with lead in the pipes for the House of Representatives this year;

After Lead Contamination In House Office Building’s Water, Lawmakers Demand EPA ReformsBut did lead also lead to the crazy thinking in the Senate, for these people to want to permanently enshrine a state of economic war against Russia?!?

I would like to politely remind our readers, that economic wars frequently devolve into shooting wars.

It is apparent to me that the money junkies are so terrified of a potential Trump presidency, which may herald better relationships with lots of other countries, that they will do anything to prevent any kind of better relations with Russia.

And this "anything" is pretty demonstrably creepy. As reported by Boris Zilberman on May 6th of this year:

Representative Eliot L. Engel (D-NY), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) today announced that they have introduced comprehensive legislation to address the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. An additional bipartisan group of 14 members, including the bipartisan leadership of the Congressional Ukraine Caucus, joined Reps. Engel and Kinzinger to introduce the Stability and Democracy (STAND) for Ukraine Act (H.R. 5094), which clarifies the position of the United States on Russia’s illegal occupation of Crimea, tightens sanctions on Russia, and drives new innovations to provide support for Ukraine.”

Russia's alleged "illegal occupation of Crimea... never happened.

And I would politely like to remind Representatives Engel and Kinzinger that lying to the American people, in order to further a "narrative" which may ultimately lead to a shooting war against Russia,as did the Bush Administration's claim against Iraq, that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction", will not be tolerated by the American people again, ever.

Here is the actual timeline of Crimea's referendum to leave the Ukraine, which passed unanimously, and its petition to the Russian Federation to become accepted as a member:

Crimea's case for leaving Ukraine

Next, I would like to remind Representatives Engel and Kinzinger that
Victoria Nuland boasted about having undercut the legitimate government of Ukraine when Yanukovich got unceremoniously thrown under the proverbial bus, and Poroshenko was "anointed" the country's President:

American Conquest by Subversion: Victoria Nuland’s Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to “Subvert Ukraine”

And lastly, the "contributions"
of the international financier with an infinite capability for seeing potential money in the blood of mass murder, George Soros:


Representatives, I am just an ordinary person; but if I can figure this out, so can most thinking Americans, and I would strongly suggest that there are more of them out there than you care to number.

This legislation is a nasty piece of work; please withdraw it from consideration.

And although I do not know, I would strongly suspect that both of you have a lot of investment in the military/industrial complex, and would benefit, financially, from such a war.

Sponsoring this legislation makes it painfully clear that you do not really serve the best interests of the people you allegedly represent, but the interests of those companies which would profit highly from a war against Russia, including the banks which loan money, to all sides, to keep the war going.

U.S. Court Upholds United Nations’ Immunity in Cholera Suit

A United States federal appeals panel has upheld that the United Nations cannot be sued in American courts, dealing a setback in a class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of thousands of cholera victims in Haiti.

The ruling by the three-judge panel in New York was released on Thursday, a day after a spokesman for Secretary General Ban Ki-moon acknowledged for the first time that the United Nations played a role in the outbreak, which killed thousands of people.

In the decision for the panel, Judge José A. Cabranes of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit wrote that the United Nations did not lose its legal immunity even if it failed to give the plaintiffs a chance to seek a settlement, as required by an international convention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: once again, the Haitian people have been thrown under the proverbial bus of UN despotism. And how the hell did this outbreak happen, after having eradicated this disease for 100 years? Read this, and weep:

Haiti's Cholera Outbreak Tied To Nepalese U.N. Peacekeepers

And you can be quite sure that these “significant new set of U.N. actions” will be of cold comfort to those already dead here from this outbreak.

MSF to evacuate staff from Yemen hospitals after Saudi-led air strikes

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) says it is evacuating its staff from six hospitals in northern Yemen after the deaths of 19 people in a Saudi-led coalition air strike on one of its facilities.

Countless attacks on health facilities in Yemen have endangered patients and staff and displayed a failure by warring parties to control the use of force, the group said.

The Saudi-led coalition expressed deep regret over the decision and said it was trying to set up "urgent meetings" with the medical aid group.

The Saudi-led coalition expressed deep regret over the decision and said it was trying to set up "urgent meetings" with the medical aid group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Deep regret..." on the part of the Saudi Government, MY ASTROLABE!

By bombing these medical facilities, the Saudi government and military got precisely what they wanted; a complete evacuation of the MSF staff, to insure that no Houthi rebels, or civilians who were badly wounded by their strikes, would get care, and would die, horrifically.

But then, Saudi serial genocide against the Yemeni people, enabled by US bombs and "guidance", has been what this war of attrition has been about, hasn't it?!?

To kill enough Houthis, civilians, children, women, and the elderly medically fragile, to insure that enough emotional and physical capitulation would lead
to the reinstatement of the Al Hadi government, which is the sole objective of the American government.

And THAT is to be accomplished, in their minds, by any means necessary.

But I would like to politely suggest to the House of Saud; the Saudi Government; the Saudi Military; and the American Government that this fight to dislodge the Houthis in Yemen has gone on well over a year, and the rebels don't seem to want to surrender any more than they did when they took the country over.

This conflict could well go down in the history books as Saudi Arabia's Vietnam.

Man facing years in prison for placing simple off-the-grid cabin on his own property

A California man is facing criminal charges for erecting a small dwelling off the grid on property that he owns.

Soylent CEO Rob Rhinehart purchased the 8,422-square-foot piece of land on Los Angeles' Flat Top Hill in a city auction in December. With no electricity or water hook-ups, it sold for a cheap $21,300. Rhinehart spent a further $1,500 buying a red shipping container to place on the land and adding a portable toilet and solar power. His aim was to create a minimalist home featuring graywater recycling, solar panels, and a septic tank.

Rhinehart offered to move the structure to a different location after complaints from neighbors, but the city had already started to file the charges. He is due in court on September 7 for arraignment. He is facing a $4,000 fine and could even end up spending two years in prison.

Why the new Iran revelation looks so bad for the Obama administration

Back in January, Iran released five American prisoners it had been holding. That same day, we have come to find out, the American government sent $400 million in cash to Iran.

It isn't hard to draw conclusions based on the proximity of those two events. And yet, the Obama administration repeatedly sought to separate them from one another — even as Republicans have almost universally accused it of paying a "ransom" for American "hostages."

The administration's task in denying that allegation just became much more difficult.

In response to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the State Department on Thursday acknowledged that the money was used as "leverage" in the prisoner-release negotiations. The money was already due to Iran as part of a settlement over a decades-old failed arms deal — also reached in January — but State Department spokesman John Kirby confirmed it was withheld until the prisoners had left Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's very clear here: what the Obama Administration told the American people, and the world, about this transfer of money was another lie.

This was precisely a ransom for these prisoners.

Americans know it, the Iranians certainly know it, and the world knows it.

It’s difficult to pick the most destructive of America’s many senseless, futile and tragically needless wars, but the “War on Drugs” is near the top of the list.Prohibition of mind-altering substances has not just failed–it has failed spectacularly, and generated extremely destructive and counterproductive consequences.

What was the result of the Prohibition of alcohol in the 1920s? Prohibition instantly criminalized 40+% of the adult populace and created hugely profitable criminal organizations.

What was the result of the “War on Drugs”? This modern-day Prohibition instantly criminalized large swaths of the adult populace and created hugely profitable criminal organizations.

If you want to increase drug use, criminalize innocent citizens and spawn gargantuan criminal organizations, then by all means declare “war” via Prohibition. The results of Prohibition/War on Drugs are so visibly perverse and so destructive that the entire enterprise is sickeningly Orwellian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's all about the money made from selling the drugs, and laundering the money made by the drug cartels.

This is one of the most important reason to defeat Hillary Clinton this November, as she is part of America's "Narcocracy", and the Bush, Cheney, and and Clinton families are dynastic members of an elite crime syndicate.

Can the FBI keep secret the number of chairs it has in its Boston office? How about the number of investigations its local Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) conducted in the year 2014, or how many parking spaces it reserves for its agents? No.
Despite the Bureau’s attempts to hide this information from the public, a federal judge today ruled that records about the Boston FBI’s budget, staffing, and investigations are not exempt from public disclosure. The ruling also pushes back against the federal government’s assertion that an agency doesn’t have to perform a search for records simply because it thinks another agency has similar documents, upholding a centrally important facet of FOIA law: if an agency possesses a record, that record is subject to public disclosure—no matter who produced it, and no matter which other government agencies might also have it.

When the Federal Trade Commission neared a momentous decision on whether to charge Google with violating antitrust laws in January 2013, the White House was watching closely.

New emails uncovered by the Campaign for Accountability, a public interest watchdog organization, show that a White House advisor met with top Google lobbyist Johanna Shelton and top Google antitrust counsel Matthew Bye twice in the weeks before the FTC announcement.

And hours prior to the final decision – in which FTC commissioners took the unusual step of overriding their staff’s recommendation to sue, and voted to settle the case instead – the White House official even sought Google’s talking points in the matter.

Following "Deadliest Month" In A Year, Ukraine President Warns Of "Full-Scale Russian Invasion"

The last month has seen Russia pull out of peace talks (citing attacks in Crimea and detention of key individuals) and an increasing mobilization of Ukraine troops near the Russian border, and now, after the deadliest month since last August, Ukraine president Poroshenko has warned he isn't ruling out a full-scale Russian invasion and may institute a military draft if the situation with its neighbor worsens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right after being "installed and anointed" as Ukraine's President, Poroshenko has been crying wolf about a potential "Russian invasion" over the last two years, and yet ... no such invasion has come about.

My guess is that Russia's response to the attempted sabotage in Crimea by Ukrainian agents provocateurs will be asymmetric, and most probably economic in nature.

The Ukrainian economy is hanging by a thread right now, and could be pushed over the edge by some very clever maneuvering on Putin's part; that will get the Ukrainian people so outraged, that Poroshenko has failed them so badly economically, that they will throw the current bums out of office - possibly, quite literally.

US Corporate Debt Has Doubled To $6 Trillion Since The Crisis: This Is Who Bought It

Yesterday, in the FOMC notes, the Federal Reserve made a stark admission: “several expressed concern that an extended period of low interest rates risked intensifying incentives for investors to reach for yield and could lead to the misallocation of capital and mispricing of risk, with possible adverse consequences for financial stability.” To this, Bank of America chief credit strategist Hans Mikkelsen had an amusing retort:

"We agree. However, because we are still in the reach for yield phase we remain bullish on HG corporate bond spreads."
In other words, it's a bubble and everyone - even the Fed - knows it, just as a recent survey also by BofA revealed, but keep on buying because, well, TINA.

But who is buying, and how much?

Obama unlikely to halt vacation to visit flooded Louisiana

President Barack Obama is unlikely to break from a New England vacation to survey flood damage in Louisiana, despite calls for him to visit and meet with responders and victims.

The White House insists Obama is not indifferent to the suffering of thousands who were washed out of their homes in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas of the state. At least 13 people have died as a result of the flooding, and at one point 11,000 were in shelters. That number has dropped as water levels have receded.

In an editorial published Wednesday, The Advocate newspaper in Baton Rouge called on Obama to visit "the most anguished state in the union." The newspaper noted that Obama interrupted his two-week vacation on Martha's Vineyard earlier this week to attend a fundraiser for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the Massachusetts island.

The newspaper said Obama can and should visit now that the once-raging floodwaters are receding.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the residents of Louisiana, who thought that this President might care enough to come down and take a look at the devastation with which your are coping, unfortunately, you were completely wrong.

You have no wealth, and no real resources with which to "buy into" Obama's future plans to "re-invent" himself, post-residency; the residents of Martha's Vineyard do.

Kris Kristofferson’s Dramatic Cure of his “Incurable” Alzheimer’s Disease

Apparently Kristofferson had been mis-diagnosed with Alzheimer’s dementia about three years ago, which started more than one medical misadventure for he and his neurologists that involving neurotoxic medication trials with drugs. Those drugs that Kristofferson was treated with had been approved by the FDA on the basis of a couple of short-term trials involving only a few hundred so-called “Alzheimer’s Dementia” patients. The results that were submitted to the FDA showed only minimal improvement (albeit “statistically significant”), but only in mild to moderate dementia. Thus treating severely demented patients with those drugs was not FDA-approved (“off-label”).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iatrogenic diseases are taboo to speak about in this country for good reason; they make millions for big pharma, and many times, as happened with Pfizer, physicians are "encouraged" - not to mention, financially compensated, for the prescription of "off-book medications".

Hillary Clinton Picks TPP and Fracking Advocate To Set Up Her White House

TWO BIG ISSUES dogged Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary: the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP) and fracking. She had a long history of supporting both.

Under fire from Bernie Sanders, she came out against the TPP and took a more critical position on fracking. But critics wondered if this was a sincere conversion or simply campaign rhetoric.

Now, in two of the most significant personnel moves she will ever make, she has signaled a lack of sincerity.

She chose as her vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine, who voted to authorize fast-track powers for the TPP and praised the agreement just two days before he was chosen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Clinton speaks on something, you can bet on her to do just the opposite, as demonstrated by these two hires.

And there is ARE real, legitimate problems with the TPP, one of the worst being the acceptance of countries into this partnership, such as Malaysia, Peru, Brunei, and Vietnam, which have both horrific human rights and environmental issues.

As reported at flushthetpp.org in July of this year:

In a cynical bid to salvage the already-controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Obama administration today removed Malaysia from a list of the world’s most flagrant violators of basic human trafficking norms – two months after the discovery of mass graves for human trafficking victims in Malaysia, Public Citizen said. In its annual Trafficking in Persons Report released today, the U.S. Department of State ignored TPP member Malaysia’s documented deterioration of human trafficking enforcement and upgraded the country’s human trafficking compliance status. Members of Congress, religious groups and leading U.S. and Malaysian human rights organizations have rightly lambasted the decision as an indefensible maneuver to avoid a U.S. law that prohibits Fast Tracking the TPP as long as a country on the blacklist, like Malaysia, is a party to the pact. “The administration knows that the TPP will have trouble in Congress, but turning a blind eye to Malaysia’s grave human rights violations in order to include Malaysia in the pact because it’s one of the few TPP countries we don’t already have a trade deal with and keeping the TPP on Fast Track so Congress’ oversight is limited is shameful,” said Alisa Simmons, deputy director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch. The maneuver also will backfire, instead adding to the controversy surrounding the TPP. “If the Obama administration is willing to ignore people-smuggling camps in Malaysia, why should we believe it would not also ignore TPP member Brunei’s criminalization of homosexuality, TPP member Vietnam’s widespread child labor or TPP member Peru’s rollback of environmental protections?” Simmons said.

Merkel says refugees didn't bring Islamist terrorism to Germany

Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, adding that Islam belonged in the country as long as it was practiced in a way that respected the constitution.

More than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in Germany last year. The mood towards them has soured after a spate of attacks on civilians last month, including three carried out by migrants.

Two of those attacks were claimed by the Islamic State militant group.

"The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees," Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Merkel, and her party, will be officially toast as of the next general election.

Obama will leave his successor a ticking time bomb

Barack Obama likes to credit himself with getting America to step back from the abyss of the Middle East. When he shops around the story of his legacy, the president says he was proudest of his decision not to follow the "Washington playbook" and commit to toppling the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

It would be a fitting story to tell of the man who ascended to the presidency while simultaneously winning a Nobel Peace Prize. Obama returns America's sword to its sheath, and earns the praise of his fans and admirers. Just as he passed on a better economy to his successor than the one he inherited from Bush, so he passed on a safer world.

Unfortunately this story is a lie from end to end. The world the next president will inherit is full of traps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not just one ticking time bomb the next President will inherit from the epic fail of the Obama Presidency; it will be numerous time bombs.

Between the economy; Afghanistan; Libya; Iraq; Syria; Russia; Ukraine; and China, the next President will have multiple messes with which to have to deal.

Dems: Future Leaks Might Be ‘Russian Lies

After hacker Guccifer 2.0 twice hacked significant Democratic Party targets, first releasing considerable information during the DNC and then hacking the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, party leadership appears to be getting a bit gunshy about future leaks embarrassing their presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. They’re also trying to get in front of such leaks by speculating that whatever they say might be “Russian lies” designed to make Hillary look bad.

Democrats have repeatedly speculated that Guccifer 2.0 amounts to the Russian government, and have suggested the hacks were a Russian plot to get the Republican nominee elected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, such an accusation is desperation on the cusp of madness by the Democrats.

US Sees Longtime CIA Asset Gen. Hifter as Threat to Libya War

As the US war in Libya moves into its third week, officials and analysts are seeing a lot of problems with their plans, but perhaps the biggest problem is one of their own creation, the Libyan Army and its leader, long-time CIA asset Gen. Khalifa Hifter.

Hifter was a general of Moammar Gadhafi until 1987, when he was captured by Chad. The next year, he became a US proxy for an anti-Gadhafi insurgency, and after that collapsed, moved to Virginia, with occasional trips back to Libya for other failed US-backed plots.

When NATO imposed regime change in 2011, Gen. Hifter was quick to make his grand return, and has been trying to consolidate his power ever since. He announced a coup in 2014, which didn’t amount to much, and is now at the head of the army loyal to the UN-backed Tobruk government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stupidity...should be horrifically painful.

And the degree to which the US government is pathologically incapable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion, is thoroughly terrifying, and brilliantly demonstrated in the problem they are now having with Hifter.

So what is the US government going to do now, pull a decap strike on this guy, if they can get through his military lines, and find him?!?

It was just this last May that al-Monitor reported:

Gen. Khalifa Hifter's star appears to be rising once again in Libya, and it is only a matter of time before we see him become a figurehead in a country that is lacking any but is eager to have one. Summary⎙ Print Gen. Khalifa Hifter's speculative role in Libya's future is as captivating as his intriguing past. Author Mustafa Fetouri Posted May 9, 2016 His enemies in Misrata and Tripoli have always questioned his motives and intentions, but it remains to be seen if he will be a uniting leader for a fragmented country or a divisive politician pushing Libya toward even more fragmentation. During March, Hifter almost completely liberated Benghazi and started moving his troops to retake Sirte in western Libya, where the Islamic State (IS) has been in control for almost two years. Hifter's troops are surrounding the city, awaiting his orders to attack IS, which has launched battles west and southwest of the city, taking more territories and small villages such as Abu Grain and Zamzim. Hifter's declared aim is to liberate Libya from Islamists, but it is unclear what his next step will be if he takes Sirte. The next big city on the way to Tripoli is Misrata, which has the most powerful local militia in Libya. Misrata is already an enemy of Hifter, which means attacking it will trigger longer, more devastating war in the country. So who is this man who has been on and off the Libyan political scene for the last 40 years, shifting positions as his fortune changed from a Moammar Gadhafi loyalist to a prisoner of war to Gadhafi's sworn enemy and — most recently — as chief of staff of the Libyan army under the internationally recognized government in Tobruk?

My goodness, how quickly things can change in the geopolitical arena!!

US: Russia’s Use of Iran Bases Could Violate UN Resolution: Russia Points Out That's Obviously Not the Case

The US State Department is claiming that the Russian use of an Iranian air base for strikes against ISIS in Syria could violate UN Security Council Resolution 2231, and claims to be consulting “our lawyers” to decide if it amounts to a violation.

Resolution 2231 bans Iran from obtaining nuclear-capable ballistic missiles or combat aircraft, though the State Department claims it can be used to do a lot of other things, and that Russia having military assets inside Iran might amount to the “transfer of military technologies” to them.

Russian officials are pointing out that’s obviously not the case, and that no aircraft or supplies are being transferred to Iran, they’re just using an Iranian base. The language of the resolution does not suggest any ban on Iran allowing the use of their air bases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short message to the US State Department; the lies simply are not working, folks; you have far too many very thoroughly engaged, on-line citizens, who remember very clearly when the US and the world was fed that codswallop about "Iraq's weapons of Mass Destruction", and therefore can never believe anything the US government says, ever again.

Feminist Website: Bill Clinton May Have Raped Juanita Broaddrick, but That Doesn’t Mean He’s ‘Evil’

The feminist website Wonkette published a piece Monday in which the writer acknowledges that Bill Clinton “could very well have raped” Juanita Broaddrick — but added that it doesn’t make the former president “evil.”

In an article bearing the headline “Let’s Talk About Juanita Broaddrick,” writer Rebecca Schoenkopf addresses Broadrick’s allegation that Clinton raped her in an Arkansas hotel room 40 years ago. She acknowledges the “contemporaneous evidence,” including some of Broaddrick’s friends claiming to have seen her crying and with bruised lips not long after the alleged incident occurred.

While Schoenkopf doesn’t buy the allegation that Clinton’s wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, knew about or tried to keep Broaddrick quiet about the alleged rape, she does give some credence to the accusation against the former president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: Rebecca Scheonkopf of Wonkette.com, has become an apologist for rape, in an attempt to exonerate her heroine, Hillary Clinton, from any responsibility whatsoever,as being the "Bimbo Eruption Enforcer in Chief" after Bill's numerous, serial sexual peccadilloes?!?

Ms. Scheonkopf is obviously suffering from a bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder), and I would strongly encourage her to seek medical, and psychological attention for this, STAT.

As reported at realclearpolitics.com in February of this year:

Elder: "What can you tell us about what Hillary did? What was her role in all of this?" Klayman: "We know from the various women who had contact. Some of them had contact with Hillary Clinton in Arkansas. They know her way of doing business. ... And Stephanopoulos and Carville himself effectively admitted it when they did that documentary, 'The War Room.' It was Hillary who was at the top of that. She was the one who called the shots. And the private detectives who were sicced on these women ... were hired by Hillary Clinton. I took the deposition of (one) and confirmed that (he was) hired through Hillary's lawyer. So there's a lot of different evidence here, direct and circumstantial, that places Hillary at the center of these acts against the women." Elder: "The most serious allegation, of course, is the one by Juanita Broaddrick. She claims that when Bill Clinton was Arkansas attorney general, he raped her, and two weeks later, at some campaign function, Hillary came up to her and verbally intimidated her, saying things to her, according to Broaddrick, that made it clear: Keep your mouth shut, or else." Klayman: "One of the private detectives broke into her house and took an answering-machine tape ... to make sure there was no evidence of what had occurred. These were the kind of things that have been done. ... They would have the private detectives -- for instance, Kathleen Willey experienced this -- she was riding her bike one day and one of these private detectives, or one of his agents, rode up to her on another bike and mentioned the names of her children in a very sinister way. 'How are your children, Ms. Willey?' In fact, that happened to me during a deposition at Judicial Watch, where one of the lawyers that were representing the Clintons -- shortly after my daughter was born -- mentioned her name. And there was no way of knowing that. They wanted us to know that they were watching us ... that we were at risk." Elder: "I've interviewed Kathleen Willey, and I've said to her, as I'm saying to you, when people came by and made threats and said names and suggested she should 'watch it,' you still can't trace that to Hillary."

And a final caveat to Ms. Scheonkopf: What do all the countries in North Africa and the Middle East which donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation have in common?!? Check here, and you have one of your answers:

Clinton Foundation Takes $25.5M from Countries that Kill, Imprison Gays

Here's another link with a pretty grim chart of what these countries paid, and what they do to their gay communities:

List of Middle East Countries Hillary Has Taken Money from that Punish Gays with Death

Oh, and here is a nice little factoid about another "wonderful" practice from all the countries in the Middle East and North Africa which donated to Clinton's foundation allow, which include Saudi Arabia; Kuwait; Qatar, Sultanate of Oman; UAE; Embassy of Algeria; and the kingdom of Brunei:

Prevalence of female genital mutilation by country

So, in summation, all of the countries which contributed to the Clinton Foundation in the Middle East and North Africa still allow the frightful, barbaric practice of female genital mutilation, and jail, chemically castrate , and/or execute members of their LGBT communities.

Take a good look at the countries in the table on the left of the article, and you will see Saudi Arabia; Kuwait; Qatar, Sultanate of Oman; UAE; Embassy of Algeria; and the kingdom of Brunei as countries where FGM is still practiced.

Now, what can you say about the morality of a person who takes money from countries like this, understanding that these horrific practices continue to take place?!?

The answer is very simple; Hillary Clinton has utterly no morality, and that is the God's truth. In her world, the end justifies the means, period, end of discussion.

I am very sorry to have to disabuse Ms. Schoenkopf, and those who want to think like her, of the notion that Hillary Clinton is, in any way, shape or form, a moral human being; but it is time people accepted the awful truth about this sick "dynamic duo" of Bill and Hill.

They are both thugs of the highest order, dressed in Armani suits, to give them the "aura" of "legitimacy", when that alleged "legitimacy" has been purchased through assassinations, blackmail, and money.

And lastly, when was the last time that a Presidential candidate has a "dead bodies list", following them?!?

The Justice Department Is Going To Stop Using Private Prisons

The Justice Department plans to stop using privately run prisons that typically house undocumented federal inmates following a report finding they are less safe than those that are federally run, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates said Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will believe this when I actually see it.

The private prison lobby has become huge within the last decade, and I don't know how ready our" gangsta class" politicians are to embrace the lack of contributions such a move on the the part of the Justice Department will create.

On Thursday, the U.S. State Department approved the sale of more military equipment, valued at around $1.15 billion USD, to the oil-rich kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This sounds like a lot of money to most of us, but the most frightening aspect of the sale is that it represents a continuation of an arms-dealing relationship between Washington and the Saudi regime, which has been worth over $50 billion USD in arms sales to date.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, our beloved Warmonger and Dealer of Death-in-Chief!!

And as to the Nobel Nominating Committee; your "prize" has devolved into an absolute and complete sick joke, considering that your actually awarded it to both Henry Kissinger, as well as to President Obama.

And let me suggest to the Nobel Nominating Committee the following (and not terribly "out there") scenario.

IF internal DNC and White House polling suggests that Donald Trump may win the election in a landslide, it is highly likely that the Obama Administration will potentially start wars with China and Russia well before the election in November to give Donald Trump the worst situations to deal with even before he takes the Oath of Office in January.

Right now, I would not bet against this, were I a betting person.

In just one year, active duty service members had to rely on $24 million worth of food stamps. But the Department of Defense has so far not made a concerted effort to work with the USDA to understand the scope of the problem.

Military service members on active duty spent $24 million in food stamps at military commissary shops from September 2014 to August 2015, and 45 percent of students in schools run by the military are eligible for free or reduced-price meal programs.

For years, the military has been embarrassed by reports showing that some active-duty service members struggle to feed their families and use government benefits to get by. A recent report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that the Department of Defense (DoD) does not fully understand the scope of the problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This amounts to criminal neglect, on the part of the US military, and needs to be addressed immediately.

That we have even ONE SERVICE MEMBER on food stamps is a damned shame, and has to be messing with peoples' heads right now.

How in the name of heaven can our military and civilian leadership expect that our service members are going to "win" battles against, let's say, Russia or China, when those service members are on food stamps, because the US military is too stingy to pay them what they need to provide decent nutrition for themselves and their families?!?

For the first time in modern American history, the government decides to detain all Central American women and children seeking asylum in the U.S., instead of allowing them to live freely until their days in court. The policy change is intended to send a message to anyone else seeking refuge from a plague of gang violence below our southern border: Don’t believe everything you read on the Statue of Liberty.
And to implement this draconian proposal, the government awards a well-connected private prison company with a $1 billion no-bid contract — one that promises to pay the firm $20 million a month, no matter how few migrants its facility is responsible for housing at a given time. Then federal courts rule that this policy of mass detention isn’t actually legal. But the contract is already signed, and so the Corrections Corporation of America collects millions in taxpayer money to maintain a nearly empty detention center.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Private prisons have become one of the largest contributors to political campaigns, of recent years; this is simply political patronage, writ large, courtesy of the Obama Administration.

And the people who, once again, get shafted by this Administration are the American taxpayers.

Three years ago this week, Egyptian forces opened fire on a sit-in, killing hundreds of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

At least 817 people died in the Aug. 14, 2013 attack on Rabaah Al-Adawiya Square, where protesters — mostly supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood — had gathered after the coup.

For the survivors and their families, justice remains a far off dream today.

The sit-in was organized in opposition to the July 2013 coup which replaced the democratically-elected Morsi government with one led by Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who led the Egyptian military under the previous dictator, Hosni Mubarak.

Despite the abrupt transfer of power and violent suppression of the opposition, the White House was reluctant to call the takeover a coup, and the United States continues to support the el-Sissi government, despite token reductions in military aid after the coup. At $1.3 billion annually, Egypt is second only to Israel in terms of U.S. military aid.

BREAKING ALERT: 20 States That Just Called An Emergency Convention Into Effect, Insider Secrets Revealed

There has been increasing talk of calling a convention of the states together to stop the federal government and Obama’s administration from running wild and doing whatever they choose. However, now the talk has turned into a reality as states have mobilized to put the convention into place. The resolution has just been circulated and approved by the states involved.

Once the document was compiled and formatted for appropriate government security (unlike what Hillary did with emails), it was mailed directly to the White House so that Obama can read it fully himself and recognize that the true American people are tired of his actions and looking to make a change.

Holocaust survivors are among those victimized by Israel’s growing baby-stealing scandal, a shocking new investigation by Haaretz has found.

Israel has long been accused of nabbing babies from Yemenite immigrants in the 1940s and 1950s, but the new report from the country's “oldest daily newspaper” details accounts of families from Europe who lost children in unusual circumstances in both Israeli hospitals and in British detention camps in Cyprus.

Many families never received death certificates or burial sites and others report having their children taken from their arms by nurses who told them they had too many.

Some parents even received military draft notices on their child’s 18th birthdays, indicating no death certificates were ever filed.

Israel has conducted three previous commissions into the allegations over the years, which concluded the majority of the children died in hospital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was a pretty darned sick practice, on the part of the Israeli government back them.

And censoring some testimonies until 2071?!?

The Israeli government is pretty sure that most Holocaust survivors will be dead by that point in time, so that they cannot sue the current Israeli government, retroactively.

The rise of industrial agriculture — led by companies like Monsanto that push monoculture, chemical-based farming and patented life forms — has brought a flood of pesticides that wreak havoc on natural ecosystems.

Insects and animals that eat insects fall victim to the millions of gallons of pesticides that are dumped on cropland, which run off into waterways, drift to nearby habitats and are picked up as residue by visiting pollinators.

In the 1980s, Bayer developed a potent new class of pesticide called neonicotinoids (neonics), which rapidly came to dominate industrial agriculture. In 2008, they represented 24 percent of the global market for insecticides, with Imidacloprid becoming the most widely used insecticide in the world.

Almost all U.S. corn and about one-third of U.S. soybean is treated with neonics. A “major advance” happened when agribusiness developed neonic-coated seeds, where every part of the growing plant becomes infused with the toxin, including pollen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because politicians are completely beholden to the GMO companies for financial contributions, don't bet against these products being taken off the market any time soon.

Major Scandal Hits U.S. Military – This is Obama’s America

Federal inmates made thousands of defective combat helmets for the U.S. military at a prison facility that was rife with problems, including the use of degraded armor and the submission of preselected helmets for inspection to make sure they would get approved, according to a newly released investigative report.

A Justice Department Inspector General summary report released Wednesday said faulty helmets were made by Federal Prison Industries (FPI), for both the Army and Marine Corps.

So, the government forces people in slave-labor prisons to make war materials ... just like the Nazis did!

There has been a stock market recovery but not an economic recovery.

After he was shot, 9-year-old Kansas City boy snuggled up to his big brother and died, dad says

The majority of Black Americans murdered every year are killed by other blacks. But the enablers are in DC!

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police believe that at some point the people responsible for the murders of two boys early Saturday morning at 58th and College were inside the home.

"I do not get it. I swear. We have to protect the future. He's the future," said Jayson Ugwuh, Jayden Ugwuh's dad.

Montell and JaydenUgwuh was only 9-years-old and his cousin Montell Ross, 8-years-old. They were killed early Saturday morning when a gunman sprayed bullets into the family home where Jayden and Montell were sleeping. Altogether, there were six children sleeping inside the home at the time.

How the West is Complicit in Nurturing Islamic Radicalism?

The pivotal role played by the Wahhabi-Salafi ideology in radicalizing Muslims all over the world is an indisputable fact; this Wahhabi-Salafi creed has been generously sponsored by Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Arab States since the 1973 oil embargo when the price of oil quadrupled and the contribution of the Arab petro-sheikhs towards the “spiritual well-being” of Muslims all over the world magnified proportionally. However, the Arab autocrats are in turn propped up by the Western powers since the Cold War; thus syllogistically speaking, the root cause of Islamic radicalism has been the neocolonial powers’ manipulation of the socio-political life of the Arabs specifically, and the Muslims generally, in order to exploit their energy resources in the context of an energy-starved industrialized world. This is the principal theme of this essay which I shall discuss in detail in the following paragraphs.

The Office of the Inspector General for the Justice Department uncovered systemic mismanagement at private prisons, which fueled inmate suffering. However, the office also found the suffering would not have been so severe if government officials had engaged in proper oversight.

Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), GEO Group, and Management and Training Corporation (MTC) has contracts with the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to house about 22,660 federal inmates in private prisons—about 12 percent of the federal prison population. The BOP has contracted facilities since the late 1990s, largely because of overcrowding.

While the overall federal prison population declined by 2.3 percent from 2013 to 2014, the system remains approximately 20 percent over capacity today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's very simple, here, regarding private prisons; recidivism re-fills cells, and that fattens corporate profits.

And the private prison industry has become one of the largest political contributors to American candidates, insuring, as much as possible, that bad conditions continue without governmental scrutiny, in order to maximise profits.

The controversy last year over secretly recorded video taken of Planned Parenthood employees has turned into a bigger controversy over the First Amendment rights of journalists.

After losing the attempt to bring federal charges against the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood and certain state lawmakers are going for the nuclear option known as Assembly Bill 1671.

Courthouse News reports:

“The bill would criminalize publishing undercover video footage of “health care providers” and subject third parties, including journalists, to penalties for reporting and distributing the illegally recorded footage.

Under AB 1671, a journalist receiving and posting footage from an anonymous source could be punished by the state as well as be opened up to potential civil lawsuits. Whistleblowers would not be exempt from the proposal either, regardless of how they obtained the illegal footage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Planned Parenthood must, collectively, be terrified that some of its practices are so gruesome that, if shared with the general public, would necessitate having them close all their facilities due to the shock value of these procedures.

That being said, as a pro-Life Christian, I completely understand that there are situations where a pregnancy cannot come to term, because it utterly threatens the life of the mother.

But the passage of AB 1671 will absolutely undermine the First Amendment to the Constitution, and that cannot be allowed to stand.

Anyone on the path of studying history discovers “official” narratives are lies of omission and commission; bullshit (an academic term) to herd people to away from comprehensively and independently verifiable facts. Those of us who are professional historians choosing intellectual integrity and moral courage must become rebels from this controlled and lying propaganda connected to corporate media because what we’re told is sooooo far from what any reasonably educated person can demonstrate is accurate.

Did Canada Sell Its Gold to Prepare for the North American Union?

It’s never been clear why Canada sold ALL its gold, HERE, but perhaps it has to do with the potential, upcoming North American Union.

Just the other day, we wrote that Hillary’s plans are obviously to support the creation of the NAU. You can see the article HERE, entitled, “Hillary Plans Steps Toward North American Union If Elected.”

We’ve been writing about the resurgence of the NAU for years – and then more recently for months as regards this campaign. Gradually, the alternative media is becoming more aware of how high the stakes really are.

JEAN-CLAUDE Juncker has been warned he risks being responsible for causing a bloody civil war in Europe if he persists with his arrogant approach towards Britain.

Jean-Claude Juncker has been warned he risks sparking civil war over Brexit
A political expert branded the Brussels chief’s actions “stupid and short-sighted” and said his Brexit negotiating stance makes him akin to “some latter day Nicolae Ceausescu”.

In a blistering attack academic Sean Swan said the EU Commission boss is “doomed” because he is behaving like a “frustrated child” and not a statesman.

Clinton is playing liar’s poker with America’s future

The suckers in the upcoming election are tens of millions of people who don’t understand that they are playing the biggest hand that has been dealt in the past 100 years. Ordinary citizens that believe they never gamble, but will vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, are making the biggest gamble of their lives. Unfortunately it is like being dealt a 2 and 9 of clubs and wanting to double down.

War law somehow isn’t crystal-clear in letter and intent? Those Oath-sworn and tax-paid shouldn’t enforce it with .01% arrests for OBVIOUS lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression?? What that argument sounds like with traffic law, baseball, and chores

“No treaty, however much it may be to the advantage of all, however tightly it may be worded, can provide absolute security against the risks of deception and evasion.” ~ President Kennedy, June 10, 1963

I was inspired to write this essay by the following comment from an otherwise intelligent person:

"Therefore, while I can say it strongly appears U.S. wars are in violation of the treaties and therefore likely illegal, there is no way for myself to make that a legally binding finding and attach legal demands based upon it. I can make stuff up, but that won’t go over very well."

From similar comments over time, I’ve made perhaps ten requests for this person to summarize war law in a sentence or two. So far, I’ve received only dodges avoiding this easy and essential citizen responsibility. This said, this isn’t the only individual who can’t summarize war law, and see that it’s meant to be as clear as:

“stop sign” law for driving,

Global central banks dump USA debt at record pace…

In the first six months of this year, foreign central banks sold a net $192 billion of U.S. Treasury bonds, more than double the pace in the same period last year, when they sold $83 billion. China, Japan, France, Brazil and Colombia led the pack of countries dumping U.S. debt. -- It’s the largest selloff of U.S. debt since at least 1978, according to Treasury Department data.

Early Voting : Ongoing Efforts at Stealing Elections?

Early voting is a bad public policy that increases costs, increases the likelihood of fraud, and confuses voters – leading to depressed voter turnout. It is absurd and dishonest to suggest racism being behind the sensible reform of cutting early voting down from a ridiculous 35 days before Election Day.

FBI Seeks Developer to Build an App to Help the Government Spy on Us

Are you an app developer? Are you covert as hell? Do you think we should all throw our privacy cautions to the wind? Boy, does the FBI have the job for you: design an app to help the government spy.

The Department of Justice posted a job opportunity last month to create something called a Smartphone-Based Audio Recorder. The technical requirements draft describes an app that would allow an FBI agent to "surreptitiously capture audio and video" on their smartphone. It describes two scenarios this piece of spy tech would be needed in — one is to collect live audio covertly (read: spy), and the other is to use the app as a recorder alternative to overtly record audio and video during an interview (read: not spy).

STEADY AS SHE GOES: Hillary holds onto railing, table, chair during home visit

She's just about flat lined along with her rallies, yet the lying mainstream media will have you believe she's surging in the polls! Unreal! Twilight Zone! Would not surprise me if the media tries to push her corpse into the oval office.

Report: Secret Service Insiders Confirm: ‘Hillary Suffers From Parkinson’s… Experiences Seizures From Camera Flashes’

From falls and difficulty climbing stairs to stage panic in the face of protest chants and nonsensical statements to her audience, something appears to be wrong with the former Secretary of State. In fact, even Hillary’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, noted in an email to a State Department employee that Hillary is “often confused.”

2 powerful videos, 6 minutes: Clinton was a lying, looting rogue Secretary of State, then conducted election fraud to escalate to dictator

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: David Icke

Two minutes of contrast between Ms. Clinton’s testimony versus FBI Director Comey’s statement:

Ms. Clinton’s statements of apparent lying according to the FBI:

Claiming no e-mails sent or received were “classified.”
Claiming a personal server for “convenience” but then having lawyers read the content of all 62000 e-mails???
Claiming lawyers read all e-mail content.
Claiming to use only one server.
Claiming to have provided all work emails.
Four minutes of passionate and informed testimony of election fraud in Arizona:

Further video and documentation of Ms. Clinton operating a rogue State Department for paid political favors, then operating dictatorial election fraud.

Can the 2016 Election be Rigged? You Bet!

Clinton Wants Politicians to Fight American Gun Owners, aka the Gun Lobby

The only gun lobby is the millions of voluntary citizen members of the National Rifle Association, The Gun Owners of America, The Second Amendment Foundation and the 1000’s of state level, pro gun, groups and associations. All made up of folks like me and you. So make no mistake about it, when Hillary Clinton mentions fighting the gun lobby, she is talking about you. Republican, Democrat and Independent, law-abiding, hardworking, tax paying, mom & pop, gun owners.

Central Bankers Are Choking the Economy

When will central bankers conclude that it’s their own medicine that is actually making the economy sick? They will not make that connection until they succeed in killing the patient…and even then they may continue to administer the same toxic medicine to a corpse. The political pressure is just too great to ever admit their mistakes, so they repeat them indefinitely.

It is not secret that Saudi Arabia has been carrying out ghastly war crimes on the people of Yemen using US weapons and support. Despite the US’ endless (and largely hypocritical) complaining about civilian deaths in Syria, the Saudis have deployed unprecedented violence on civilians in Yemen with no audible opposition from the US. One of the US weapons making an appearance in Yemen are widely banned cluster bombs, specifically the CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon from Textron Systems of Wilmington, Massachusetts. The bombs are not only lethal upon initial use but often the parts of the bomb do not explode as planned and spontaneously detonate later or by accident when scavengers stumble upon them while looking for scrap metal.

The unprecedented deployment of a bomb-defusing robot by Dallas police to kill an armed suspect raised several questions. While these robots have sometimes acted as part of a negotiation team in the past, no police department had previously rigged one up with an explosive device to take a suspect out. One question that remains unanswered is whether this use of the Dallas PD's robot violated its own policies. Gawker's Andy Cush filed a public records request for PD policies on using robots to kill and discovered Dallas law enforcement was basically making things up as it went along.

US Nuclear Weapons At Risk of Seizure in Turkey

Dozens of US nuclear weapons stored at a Turkish air base near Syria are at risk of being captured by “terrorists or other hostile forces”, a Washington think tank said on Monday.

The US has an estimated 50 nuclear bombs at Incirlik in southern Turkey, 110km from the border with Syria.
The base’s Turkish commander was arrested on suspicion of complicity in last month’s coup plot.

“Whether the US could have maintained control of the weapons in the event of a protracted civil conflict in Turkey is an unanswerable question,” said Monday’s report from the Stimson Center, a nonpartisan think tank working to promote peace.

Incirlik is a vital base for the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq and Syria, giving drones and warplanes fast access to IS targets.

“From a security point of view, it’s a roll of the dice to continue to have approximately 50 of America’s nuclear weapons stationed at Incirlik,” report co-author Laicie Heeley said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And hey, it wouldn't even have to be a coup ultimately commandeering these weapons; it could well be the Turkish government itself!!

With such an improvement in Turkish/Russian relations in the last week, who knows?!? Turkey may well pivot to Russia, declare itself a BRICs nation, and tell NATO to just vanish, permanently.
