BANKS MADE $6.4 BILLION IN OVERDRAFT FEES LAST YEAR -- WHERE'S THE PUBLIC OUTRAGE?

JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America -- raked in an astonishing $6.4 billion in overdraft fees alone last year. Stop a moment and think about that: Each overdraft, on average, costs customers $35, an amount that gets multiplied with each subsequent purchase no matter how small. We're talking about the world's most bloated financial giants growing even fatter and richer off the backs of people who are already broke, by charging them additional fees for money they already lack. Specifically in 2017, that meant about 183 million charges of $35.

NSA "Sincerely Regrets" Deleting All Bush-Era Surveillance Data It Was Ordered To Preserve

There is a growing consensus among many observers in Washington that the national security agencies have become completely politicized over the past seventeen years and are now pursuing selfish agendas that actually endanger what remains of American democracy.

As Philip Giraldi notes, up until recently it has been habitual to refer to such activity as the Deep State, which is perhaps equivalent to the Establishment in that it includes financial services, the media, major foundations and constituencies, as well as lobbying groups, but we are now witnessing an evolutionary process in which the national security regime is exercising power independently.

Neoconning the Trump White House

Washington's well-funded web of interventionist elites is quietly populating the president's national security circle, again.

What has been less obvious, but has become much clearer in these last few months, is that other neoconservatives are quietly filling the vacuum left by Obama’s cadre of liberal interventionists. Many of them had taken a pass on “Never Trumping” publicly, and are now popping up at the elbows of top cabinet officials.

Rex Tillerson Rewrites Syria, Ultimately Blames Iran, Essentially Declares War

Without telling you explicitly, and with no authority from Congress as required by the Constitution, the U.S. has invaded and occupied Syria with no intention to leave

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson presented remarks on The Way Forward for the United States Regarding Syria to the Hoover Institute at Stanford on January 17.

To start, Tillerson proved his mettle in lying for the U.S. Empire by blaming Syrian president Bashar al-Assad for the rise of ISIS. First Tillerson implied Assad had the nerve to fight a war and win and then he says that’s why ISIS moved in:

In December of 2016, the key city of Aleppo fell to the regime after a brutal campaign that essentially destroyed that city, which had a population over two million people before the war. This symbolized the regime’s ruthless determination to regain momentum in the conflict. It also led to – Assad to wrongly think that he would maintain power without addressing the Syrian regime’s – the Syrian people’s legitimate grievances.”

The civil war in Syria was horrific in and of itself. But Syria was thrown into an even greater state of turmoil with the emergence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.>>>

Donald Trump’s First Year and the Illusion of Choice

The striking thing about Trump’s first twelve months compared to the Obama administration is not how different his foreign policies have been, but how similar.

January 20 marks one year since Donald Trump officially became the 45th President of the United States. His supporters, boosted by comments the Donald made on the campaign trail, hoped his Presidency would mark a shift away from a neocon/liberal interventionist foreign policy. In fact we’ve just had more of the same.

The old French saying ‘plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose (the more things change the more they stay the same)’ springs readily to mind. As indeed does the late George Carlin’s comment about Americans only having the “illusion of choice” on the things that really matter.

Business as usual? ‘Americans can expect govt shutdown every 6 months’

***
"I think the President shows that Americans can expect threats of a government shutdown pretty much every six months. So the subject comes up really about twice a year – I think it hit a sort of peak under the Obama administration in 2013. It did split the Republican House at the time along sort of ideological lines as well, Tea Party insurgents and so forth. Now it has just become part and parcel of American politics. The US is bankrupt as a country on paper; they should be in receivership right now, into administration. It is business as usual running multi-trillion dollar deficits in the US now.

Russia: US Attempts to Blame Syrian Gov't for Chemical Attacks Unfounded

The Russian Defense Ministry stated that the United States was ignoring the objective evidence of chemical weapons' use by terrorists in Syria, targeted against the civilian population and the country's government troops.
***
"The US administration is at best not showing any interest and often ignores the objective factors of terrorists using poisonous substances while fighting against government forces and civilians," the ministry said in a statement.

According to the Russian military, Washington has failed to fulfill the obligations on the destruction of chemical weapons, preserving at least 10% of their arsenal operational.

"Following our commitments under the Chemical Weapons Convention, Russia has eliminated its entire chemical warfare agents arsenal early, while the United States, using false pretexts, has at first halted and then completely stopped fulfilling its commitments due to a 'lack of financing,' still keeping around 10 percent of its arsenal in a combat ready condition," the ministry added

Spokesman: Iran Not to Accept Any Change in N. Deal

Nothing more will be added or reduced from the nuclear deal," Qassemi stressed on Sunday.

He lauded Europe for its firm position on the nuclear deal, and said, "The Europeans also think that the nuclear deal is not negotiable and changeable and all sides should remain committed to their undertakings based on the nuclear deal."

In relevant remarks last Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed that Moscow will not back the US attempts to change the 2015 nuclear deal struck between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany).

"We will not support what the US is trying to do, changing the wording of the agreement, incorporating things that will be absolutely unacceptable for Iran," Lavrov said at a news conference in Moscow.

Lavrov's remarks came a few days after US President Donald Trump extended sanctions waivers on Iran>>>

Scott Adams: How to Make Your Opponents Try (and fail) to Prove a Negative

Sometimes you can prove an alleged event did happen, but you generally can’t prove something did not happen. For example, if police have clear video footage of a crime in progress, several direct witnesses, and DNA evidence too, you can say they proved the defendant did the crime. But if your neighbor says an angel visited him in his bedroom at night, and there were no witnesses or physical traces left behind, you can’t prove it didn’t happen. All you can say for sure is that you don’t have any evidence of it happening.

So if you want to drive a political opponent crazy, allege that he or she did something evil, provide no direct evidence, and force them to do the impossible: Prove it didn’t happen.

Fierce battle erupts over releasing intelligence report

A battle erupted Friday over a push by Republican lawmakers to release a report they say will reveal high-level government abuse around the federal investigation into possible ties between Trump campaign officials and Russia.

Even as Congress hurtled toward a shutdown, Republicans in the House were buzzing over the contents of a classified memo on alleged surveillance abuses that was produced by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).

Scores of Republicans viewed the controversial memo in secure settings at the Capitol and concluded it contains hard evidence that the special counsel investigation into whether Trump’s campaign officials had improper contacts with Russia were sparked by the politically motivated actions of senior FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) officials.

BREAKING: Secret Memo Reveals Why Rosenstein Was EAGER To Appoint Special Counsel…


Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is oncce again in the crosshairs after a secret memo discovered by the House Intelligence Agency revealed a troubling plot from the previous administration.

The memo, which has yet to be released to the public, contains “shocking,” “troubling,” and “alarming” details of how the Obama administration turned its massive intelligence complex against the American people, according to Fox News in an exclusive report. Lawmakers said they can’t yet discuss the contents of the memo, but that it’s so troubling that it’s imperative the American people see it.

“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said.

Hillary Clinton Desperately Tries to Distract From Media Firestorm as Imminent Release of FISA Memo Looms

Hillary Clinton is in the middle of this as her campaign paid for the phony Russia dossier which was then used to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on her political opponent, then-candidate Donald Trump.

The Russia dossier is Hillary Clinton’s dirtiest political trick to date. We are about to find out just how involved Hillary Clinton was with the FBI during the 2016 presidential election.

On Friday, Hillary Clinton broke her silence by tweeting about the record number of women running for office. Nice try, Hillary. The American people are not letting this one go.

Fusion GPS Founder Admits: Couldn’t Confirm Dossier Allegations, Spread Them To Media Anyway

usion GPS founder Glenn Simpson made a surprising if not damning admission in his interview with the House Intelligence Committee in November.

According to a transcript of his interview, released late Thursday, Simpson acknowledged that he “will never” be able to confirm a key allegation made in the infamous Steele dossier about Carter Page, the former Trump campaign adviser.

The admission is significant because of the likelihood that the FBI and Justice Department relied on allegations made about Page in the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant against him prior to the 2016 election.
