Decoding the Orlando Shooting, Cui Bono? Who Benefits?

We don’t have to go far to see the hand of intelligence agencies in this catastrophe. The shooter himself was an employee of G4S, described by journalist Alex Emmons as “a giant, often controversial global contracting corporation that provides mercenary forces, prison guards and security services.”

Additionally, the shooter’s father is said to be a CIA asset.

Given that Intelligence agencies are well-positioned to engineer synthetic terror threats, author Naomi Wolf argues that it is “crazy” not to question new events, since “spectacles” drive “outcomes”. Further, she observes that propagandizing the public includes films (i.e. “Zero Dark Thirty”) – arguing that the Pentagon must have “signed off” on it —which indirectly seek to “normalize” intelligence operations such as torture and mass surveillance.

Slavery in Thailand: How Southeast Asian Slaves Catch the Seafood Eaten in the US

Seafaring slave ships didn’t vanish in the 19th century. They still persist.

And there’s a good chance they’re catching your dinner.

Just a few years ago, the dark underworld of forced labor in Thailand’s fishing sector was little known. The dirty secrets of this $7.3 billion powerhouse industry have since been explored by the media and international watchdog groups.

But this international outcry has changed little on the lawless seas, where men still slave away on Thai-captained trawlers under savage conditions. Implications for the US are disturbing: Thailand is America’s second-largest seafood supplier behind China.

The men who haul these fish from the sea were typically suckered into working for zero pay. Almost all of the victims are smuggled from destitute villages in Myanmar or Cambodia under false promises of gigs in factories, farms or construction yards.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, will the US Congress, understanding clearly that Thailand uses maritime slavery, do for Thailand what it did for Malaysia in its reclassification of its labor status in order to join TPP, which Thailand ultimately wants to join?!?

As reported at huffpo on 27 July 2015:

The Obama administration outraged human rights advocates on Monday by removing Malaysia from its list of the world’s worst human trafficking offenders — a move that the activists said damages U.S. credibility — simply to boost the president’s trade agenda. “The Administration has turned its back on the victims of trafficking,” Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said in a written statement. “They have elevated politics over the most basic principles of human rights.” Hundreds of Democrats and a handful of Republicans had previously urged the State Department to maintain Malaysia’s ranking as a “Tier 3” human trafficking violator. For years, the Malaysian government has largely turned a blind eye to sex slavery involving men, women and children. Forced labor is rampant in several sectors of the country’s economy, particularly the electronics industry. In April, mass graves holding more than 130 human trafficking victims were discovered near the country’s northern border with Thailand. That same month, the U.S. ambassador to Malaysia said the government needed to take human trafficking prosecution more seriously. Nevertheless, the State Department officially upgraded Malaysia’s status to Tier 2 on Monday.

It never ceases to amaze me to what depth President Obama is willing to sink to get his agenda successfully enforced to enrich the elites of this world, even when that agenda means the acceptance of slave labor, as it did with Malaysia's being accepted as a TPP member.

After ‘Terror Watchlist’ Disarmament, ‘Haters’ will be Next in Line

“You all are intolerant. I don’t want to coexist with this hate,” a female SJW (“social justice warrior”) at Portland State University tells members of Students for Trump.

“We’re gonna make it against the law for this,” she threatens in response to their peaceful promotion of an ideology she hates. “We are going to expand the definition of ‘hate speech’ to include what you are doing right here.”

Argentina Expels TeleSUR and RT: Double Standards When it Comes to Press Freedom

On June 8, the Argentine government notified the Latin American television network teleSUR that their services would be shut off in the country within 15 days.[1] TeleSUR, the brainchild of Hugo Chávez, is an alternative left-wing news organization founded through the cooperation of seven left leaning Latin American governments including Venezuela, Ecuador and Cuba. It gives a voice to the popular sectors of the hemisphere, covering news that often calls into question some of the right-wing biases of the hegemonic news media and provides information which promotes regional integration in Latin America. Although Argentina cited a “[renewal of] program listings,” as the reason for teleSUR’s dismissal, Patricia Villegas, the president of teleSUR, pointed toward underlying reactions against the left-leaning network, decrying the notice as “censura” (censure).

A Unified Europe, Born In the USA: Brexit, A Challenge to America’s Domination of Europe?

The lead financial writer at the Telegraph, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, wrote in 2000:

Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe.

***

The head of the Ford Foundation, ex-OSS officer Paul Hoffman, doubled as head of ACUE [below, we’ll explain who these players are] in the late Fifties. The State Department also played a role. A memo from the European section, dated June 11, 1965, advises the vice-president of the European Economic Community, Robert Marjolin, to pursue monetary union by stealth.

It recommends suppressing debate until the point at which “adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable”.

In other words, the U.S. State Department recommended ramming through the creation of the EU before Europeans knew what was happening.

Set Britain free! Unsure how to vote? This brilliantly incisive verdict from the Spectator, the nation’s foremost political magazine, might help 

Our concern then was simple: we did not believe that the Common Market was just about trade. We felt it would be followed by an attempted common government, which would have disastrous effects on a continent distinguished by its glorious diversity.
The whole project seemed to be a protectionist scam, an attempt to try to build a wall around the continent rather than embrace world trade.

Now Lagarde takes a veiled swipe at Leave campaigners: French IMF boss sparks fury by suggesting Eurosceptic voters are narrow-minded  

The French boss of the International Monetary Fund sparked anger last night by implying that Eurosceptic voters are narrow-minded.

Christine Lagarde stepped up her pro-Brussels campaign with a last-ditch plea for the UK to remain in the EU. Pressing her case for a ‘united Europe’, she expressed disbelief that the British public could contemplate severing ties with Brussels.

Miss Lagarde said too many Europeans ‘are led to believe things would be better if only Europe returned to closed borders and economic nationalism’.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's be honest. Under the EU, things pretty much suck (except for those unelected EU commissioners; they have it pretty good!)

Republican civil war officially declared: GOP delegates openly plot to overthrow Trump at convention

With Donald Trump’s poll numbers sinking into a death spiral, dozens of Republican delegates are now openly plotting a coup to overthrow him at this year’s Republican National Convention.

The Washington Post has scored an interview with GOP delegates who are leading the effort to allow delegates to vote their consciences at this year’s RNC so they can choose someone other than Trump. The rule change would allow delegates to unbind themselves based on “personal or religious conscience.”

Kendal Unruh, a Republican delegate from Colorado, says that their plan is to stop Trump from becoming the nominee first and then hoping the delegates can then pick a consensus non-Trump candidate afterward.

“This literally is an ‘Anybody but Trump’ movement,” he told the Post. “Nobody has any idea who is going to step in and be the nominee, but we’re not worried about that. We’re just doing that job to make sure that he’s not the face of our party.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Kendal Unruh and Cecil Stinemetz.

Congratulations!! You have just let Republicans know that no matter who their choice is for this election, their views on the candidacy are completely irrelevant, and do not matter to the party elite whatsoever.

You will engineer a convention, falsely throw the nomination to one of your "preferred", and by doing that, will throw the election to Hillary Clinton, if she remains unindicted between now and the election.

Republicans who sincerely thought that they might have some small degree of preference in the matter of who becomes your candidate for President are not going to forget this for one hell of a long time.

Odds Hillary Won Without Widespread Fraud: 1 in 77 Billion Says Berkeley, Stanford Studies

Widespread allegations of election fraud and voter suppression across the United States during the 2016 Democratic Primary has sparked the interest of several academic researchers and what they discovered in their research is disturbing.

Fiscal Friday: 'Merica — The World's Largest Gun Supplier


Gun laws are not an answer, end the war of drugs. Gun laws don't prevent shooting any more than drug laws stop illegal drugs. All throughout Latin America there are countries that ban guns and yet have 2 to 6 times the fire arm death rate of the Unites States. Most shootings are over and because of the war on drugs. Mass shootings and Bombings are usually people entrapped and enticed by our own FBI. This Orlando shooter had a father in the CIA he had met with the FBI at least twice and he didn't even know the difference between Al Qaeda and Hezbollah. He was a mentally ill closet homosexual who the FBI had profiled as a target who could be manipulated into violence.?

In Defense of Self-Defense

Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years—Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino, and now Orlando—took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues "gun-free zones." They should be called killing zones.

As unspeakable and horrific as is the recent slaughter in Orlando, it has become just another example of the tragic consequences of government's interfering with the exercise of fundamental liberties. After a while, these events cease to shock; but they should not cease to cause us to re-examine what the government has done to us.

The Untold Story Behind The "Mutiny At The State Department" Where Dozens Demand War With Syria

Confirming once again that the entire US Middle-East campaign over the past 4 years has been one ongoing plan to destabilize and eliminate Syria's president Bashar al-Assad from power - certainly including the involvement of ISIS which as we reported a year ago was "created" and facilitated by the Pentagon as a tool to overthrow Assad, an analysis which yesterday gained renewed prominence - overnight the WSJ reported that dozens of State Department officials this week protested against U.S. policy in Syria, signing an internal document that calls for "targeted military strikes against the Damascus government and urging regime change as the only way to defeat Islamic State."

In other words, over 50 top "diplomats" are urging to eliminate Assad in order to "defeat ISIS", the same ISIS which top US "diplomats" had unleashed previously in order to... eliminate Assad.

TEXAS CITY WHERE COPS SHOT WALMART HOSTAGE-TAKER FLOODED WITH REFUGEES

Amarillo is bursting at the seams with foreign refugees, from Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and its mayor has pleaded repeatedly with the government to stop sending refugees to his city.

But they keep coming.

The schools are stretched, and the local police department is having a hard time getting a handle on the rising crime.

On Tuesday, it was just another example. Mohammad Moghaddan, a Somali refugee, was shot and killed by sheriff’s deputies after he had taken two Walmart employees hostage.

“Refugee resettlement is not about ‘humanitarianism’! It is about globalists and greedy industries wanting to improve their bottom lines – the social and economic condition of your towns and cities be damned,” Corcoran wrote in a recent blog.

Go ahead, shame my body

“Nobody should feel pressurised, while they travel on the Tube or bus, into unrealistic expectations surrounding their bodies, and I want to send a clear message to the advertising industry about this,” Khan said in a press release about the move.

But why stop at bodies? Surely ad campaigns can “pressurise” us in other ways. Car ads can make us feel insecure — we are riding public transit after all — while ads for baby diapers can upset a woman struggling to get pregnant.

Hair-loss clinics make those with less hair than they’d like self-conscious; shouldn’t the ad simply say that everyone is beautiful, no matter how much hair they have? Why hair shame?

Actually, many ads play to our sense of shame. What’s the message of bathroom-cleaner ads if not “Eww, your bathroom is gross”? Or kids’ snacks: “Are you seriously going to feed your child that?” Then there’s sucker-shaming: “You’re not still overpaying for cable/cell phone service/auto insurance, are you?”

And so on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have an idea. If an ad showing a hot babe in a bikini makes you feel bad .... look away! Those of us who like to look at hot babes in bikinis won't complain! I promise!

Sanders Supporters Vindicated: Proof DNC Used Media To Rig Election for Hillary

While Bernie Sanders’ supporters and independent media outlets have exhaustively pointed out that corporate media’s fatuous prattling over Hillary Clinton likely tipped the elections in her favor, we now have solid proof — leaked emails show the DNC colluded with mainstream outlets to heavily favor Clinton.

“Our goals in the coming months will be to frame the Republican field and the eventual nominee early and to provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC,” reads an email dated May 26, 2015, referencing the former secretary of state by her initials, posted by “Guccifer 2.0” — after the Romanian hacker who allegedly accessed Clinton’s private email server multiple times.
One of the strategies listed for “positioning and public messaging” states, “Use specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency and campaign finance attacks on HRC.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of campaigning one does when one cannot, possibly, run on the facts, or a detailed description of one's business ethics.

Sanders got well and truly screwed in California, and most probably beyond.

Oh, and BTW, you may love this little "factoid: Saudi Arabia's crown Prince went on the record (only to subsequently retract this) in saying that he was supporting 20% of Hillary's campaign costs. As reported this week in zerohedge.com:

Where there is a big, and potentially law-breaking, problem is what Jordan's official news agency, Petra News Agency, reported on Sunday citing the Saudi crown price, namely that Saudi Arabia is a major funder of Hillary Clinton’s campaign to become the next president of the United States. As MEE notes, the Petra News Agency published on Sunday what it described as exclusive comments from Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which included a claim that Riyadh has provided 20 percent of the total funding to the prospective Democratic candidate's campaign. The report was later deleted and the news agency has not responded to requests for comment from Middle East Eye. However, the deletion took place too late, as the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs managed to capture the report and has re-published the original Arabic Petra report, which quoted Prince Mohammed as having said Saudi Arabia had provided with “full enthusiasm” an undisclosed amount of money to Clinton.

Now, if in fact this interview is true, what does it mean for the future of US foreign policy, should Hillary steal/win the election?!?

IF in fact she is well and truly bought, look for:

1. More arms sales to Saudi Arabia, whose government and military have never found a war crime they didn't want to embrace (particularly in its war against Yemen's Houthis), such as the killing of civilians, the use of cluster bombs against civilians, and the shelling of hospitals and schools.

2. A concerted, collective "looking the other way" as Saudi Arabia exports its violent, Wahabi culture of jihad into other Middle Eastern countries.

3. Favorable financial deals from the US government, because Saudi Arabia "payed to play."

Please remember; the depth to which this woman can be bought has no boundaries whatsoever.

CIA Chief Contradicts Obama On ISIS Threat, Warns Of Intensified Terror Campaign

Less than 48 hours after President Obama reassured the nation that his strategy against ISIS is working, Obama’s CIA director told the Senate the exact opposite. ISIS is, he said, as formidable a threat as it ever was.

Obama’s remarks came after a meeting with his National Security Council, during which he spent a significant amount of time detailing all the many successes his strategy is having against the Islamic State (which Obama calls ISIL instead of ISIS), progress that he thinks is being obscured by recent terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed in the name of ISIS.

Sounds like Obama’s really on top of the situation, doesn’t it?

Except that on Thursday, CIA Director John Brennan told a far different story about ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given Obama's penchant for discarding members of his team who have a different "narrative" on what is going on, both nationally, and internationally, I am rather surprised that Brennan still has his job.

But that being said, one has to look at these issues with a great deal of logic, and ask yourself, who benefits?!?

Certainly, jihadist attacks at home or abroad do not benefit the American people at all.

But the narrative supported by US government-enabled jihadist attacks in the Middle East is supposed to make Americans believe that by US staging military attacks against these operatives, we will be safer here at home.

And yet, the US government was impotent to prevent the horrific massacre in Orlando, and what has been the primary call of politicians?!? To enact more gun control, and take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. This has all the earmarks of yet another false flag.

Let's be intelligent about this; there are people who should not have access to guns, including felons, and people on psychiatric medications.

But that being said, there were some very viable reasons why the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution was created; the founding fathers (and the women who loved them) knew all too well that a disarmed populace was an enslaved population.

We as Americans, would do well not to forget that.

The original "Contract with America" consists of the Constitution and Bill of Rights

‘Something is Going On’ – And It’s Worse Than You Thought

In short, I wrote it off as Fox News boilerplate, until the other day when, in the wake of the Orlando massacre, Donald Trump said the following on Fox: “Something is going on. He doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other.” Reiterating this trope later on in the same show, he averred that the President “is not tough, not smart – or he’s got something else in mind.”

Taliban Holds More of Afghanistan Now Than Any Time Since 2001

The installation of Lt. Gen. John Nicholson Jr. as the 17th commander of nearly 15 years of US-led occupation in Afghanistan provided yet another occasion for the US to take stock, this time with an eye on Nicholson’s proposals to loosen the rules of engagement for US combat troops.

That meant another accounting of just how badly the war is going, and it’s bad. After ousting the Taliban, which was Afghanistan’s government before the 2001 invasion, they’ve been slowly but surely losing ground back to them, and the Taliban now controls more territory than any time since the war began.

That reflects both the steady erosion of Afghan government territory in the south, and more rapid Taliban gains in both Helmand Province and around the city of Kunduz. The Taliban has intermittently taken Kunduz itself, a northern city which was largely rebel-controlled before the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

This is an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions, and there is utterly no military metric by which the US/NATO occupation could ever be characterised as a "success".

The bottom line here is: the situation is worse than when the invasion began in 2001, and for all the blood and money spent, only to achieve an absolute failure in Afghanistan, after 15 years, is staggering and pretty damned near incomprehensible.

IF President Obama is looking at having any sense of a "legacy" from his Presidency, he would be wise to pull the US out of Afghanistan as quickly as would be safe for our troops.

Of course, wisdom, and the current, and previous administrations, didn't have much of an on-going relationship, unfortunately...

Worried About “Stigmatizing” Cluster Bombs, House Approves More Sales to Saudi Arabia

THE HOUSE ON THURSDAY narrowly defeated a measure that would have banned the transfer of cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia, but the closeness of the vote was an indication of growing congressional opposition to the conduct of the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing coalition in Yemen.

The vote was mostly along party lines, with 200 Republicans – and only 16 Democrats – heeding the Obama administration’s urging to vote against the measure. The vote was 204-216.

“The Department of Defense strongly opposes this amendment,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-N.J., chairman of the House Committee on Defense Appropriations, during floor debate. “They advise us that it would stigmatize cluster munitions, which are legitimate weapons with clear military utility.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?!?

This proxy war against the Houthis, abetted and enabled by the US government in Yemen has been an absolute....fluster cluck.

The Saudi government and military have never met a war crime they didn't embrace, such as killing civilian targets, women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, and bombing hospitals and schools.

And these bombs, if unexploded, and played with by kids, do a magnificent job of tearing toddlers, limb from limb.

And you had better see what this looks like. The following images are from a Syrian bombing of a rebel held city near Damascus, but the carnage these bombs create is still the same today.

image of cluster bomb destruction

And because they so resemble emergency food packages which are dropped, kids who cannot read English cannot tell the difference.

food package and unexploded bomblet

The reason these bombs should not be used, ever again, is that it is estimated that 98% of their victims are civilians, and 40% are children, as estimated at reddit.com

Should these cluster bomb munitions be "stigmatized" for the deaths and injuries they cause civilian victims?@/

HELL, yes!!

Feds Quietly Consider Reviving EPA’s Human Testing Program

The National Academies of Sciences (NAS) met five times behind closed doors this past year to discuss the possibility of reviving Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) experiments exposing humans to harmful air pollutants.

NAS is examining the findings of a 2014 EPA inspector general reporting, which found the agency had exposed human test subjects to ostensibly deadly air pollutants without disclosing the risk of death or the total amounts of pollutants subjects would have to inhale.

But the lack of public participation in the study has Steve Milloy worried EPA could be trying to revive its “potentially illegal” testing regime, which has exposed children, asthmatics and people with heart disease to concentrated doses of pollutants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would very strongly and politely suggest to the NAS that they experiment only upon themselves and their kids, and not risk the health of even one member of the general public in what has to be and illegal and immoral program of testing these pollutants.

All are eminently right around the corner. The deniers are pathologically blind, frozen in fear or just too dumbed down to take notice, which is exactly where the elite wants and meticulously placed us. As the hourglass runs out of time, we can passively sit and wait for death and destruction to come to us or we can acknowledge this horrifyingly ugly truth and begin taking last minute action to stop the human genocide and hold the evildoers both in and out of public office accountable.

Gun-Free Zones Are Killing Zones

Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years — Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino and now Orlando — took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues “gun-free zones.” They should be called killing zones. All these mass killings have the same ending: The killer stops only when he is killed. But that requires someone else with a gun to be there. Shouldn’t that be sooner rather than later?

CDC Covered Up “Catastrophic Failures": At Level-4 Biosafety Labs Containing Ebola and Smallpox

How safe are the government’s BSL-4 labs containing some of the world’s most deadly pathogens?

Turns out, not anywhere near as safe as you’d hope.

Encased in spacesuit-like gear needed to protect them from the world’s deadliest viruses, four scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stepped into their lab’s decontamination chamber where a shower of chemicals was supposed to kill anything on them and make it safe for them to exit into an adjacent changing room.

BACKERS OF ISRAEL BOYCOTTS PROTEST NEW YORK GOVERNOR'S ORDER

Critics of Israel's treatment of Palestinians are protesting New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's executive order prohibiting state investments in any company that support a boycott of Israel.

A group of more than 100 people gathered outside the Democratic governor's office Wednesday, chanting loudly before attempting to deliver a petition to Cuomo seeking the reversal of his executive order.

Speakers at the rally say the state is violating the constitutionally protected free speech of business owners by treating them differently than others simply because of their political opinions.

I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone, and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward…”

$28 BLN INVESTED IN CLUSTER WEAPON PRODUCERS IN 4 YEARS - REPORT FINDS 158 FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS INVOLVED IN FUNDING PRODUCTION OF WEAPONS, DESPITE INT’L LAW BANNING CLUSTER BOMBS

More than $28 billion has been invested in the production of deadly cluster munitions over the past four years, according to a report released Thursday.

The Cluster Munition Coalition said in a statement that the report on worldwide investments in the weapons -- which release submunitions or bomblets on impact -- found 158 financial institutions involved in funding their production.

As a result, the Coalition is calling on the institutions and governments “to put an end once and for all to investment in producers of cluster bombs.”

Cluster bombs are banned under international law, but only 100 countries have actually become state parties to that convention.

At present, countries like Syria and Yemen are being bombarded with cluster munitions, added the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bombs like this do a magnificent job of ripping toddlers limb from limb, and kids get curious about them, if they do not explode on impact, because they so look like the emergency food packets they may have received before. As you can see from the following images, reported at matadornetwork.com:

Probably the most devastating screw-up in the history of helping was the decisions that lead to cluster munitions and daily food ration packets both being coloured canary yellow. Left is delicious. Right will kill you. You try telling the difference if you can't read English and live out in the steppes.>image

TEEN LEFT WITH PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE AFTER COP TASERS HIM IN CHEST FOR 23 SECONDS [VIDEO]

A newly released video by investigators in Kansas City in the state of Missouri, United States have discovered a reckless and brutal police officer tasing a teenager directly in the chest, uninterrupted for 23 seconds.
The incident is said to have happened in September 2014. According to the account of the story, Bryce Masters, then aged 17 was pulled over in his vehicle by officer Timothy Runnels. Officer Runnels suspected that the number plate of Bryce was linked to a stolen vehicle.

But in fact, Bryce’s vehicle had nothing in common with that stolen car Runnels was after. Runnels aggressively ordered Masters out his car, however, knowing very well that he has not committed any offence, Bryce questioned the officer why he wanted him out of his car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you live in the state of Missouri, leave now; if this is how its cops interpret "to protect and serve", you are in mortal danger. Never go to any of its entertainment venues. And let its governor, Jay Nixon know, in no uncertain terms, why you are leaving.

If you own a business in Missouri, and can, relocate to another state. Just cripple its economy by moving the tax base away from there.

Perhaps, when Missouri has become economically decapitated, and that the theme song for people moving away from the state becomes the theme song from the movie "Exodus", the state will start paying attention to the way cops appear to believe they can extrajudicially assassinate - or mortally wound - its citizens with impunity.

Unfortunately, the horrific episode which happened in Furguson a couple of years ago is not unique to that town.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA FINALLY ADMITS MASS BANKER ‘SUICIDES’ WERE LIKELY A VAST CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY

In 2015 there was a popular “conspiracy theory” floating around the internet after a rash of mysterious “suicides” by high profile banking professions. What once looked like wild speculation is now beginning to resemble a vast criminal conspiracy connected to the Libor, interest-rigging scandal.

Over forty international bankers allegedly killed themselves over a two-year period in the wake of a major international scandal that implicated financial firms across the globe. However, three of these seemingly unrelated suicides seem to share common threads related to their connections to Deutsche Bank. These three banker suicides, in New York, London, and Siena, Italy, took place within 17 months of each other in 2013/14 in what investigators labeled as a series of unrelated suicides.

HUNDREDS GO MISSING AS IRAQ BEGINS ROUNDING UP CIVILIANS

WHILE THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT MADE A BIG DEAL OVER THE WEEKEND OF ARRESTING SOME MEMBERS OF THEIR ALLIED SHI’ITE MILITIAS FOR KIDNAPPING, TORTURING, AND KILLING REFUGEES FROM ISIS-HELD FALLUJAH, THE PROBLEM APPEARS TO JUST BE GROWING, WITH THE IRAQI MILITARY ITSELF NOW REPORTEDLY ROUNDING UP PEOPLE ON THE SAME PRETEXT AS THE MILITIAS WERE, AND SHIPPING THEM TO A DETENTION CENTER, JUST LIKE THE MILITIAS WERE.

Civilians at a refugee camp in Amriyat al-Fallujah say there is growing despair over the fate of the hundreds of men, husbands, sons, etc., who were captured by security forces while trying to flee through the area the government ordered them to use, and are being held as suspected ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't you just LOVE how "American-induced democracy" is functioning in Iraq?!?

The Iraqi government is now torturing innocent civilians in your name, and with your tax dollars.

Muqtada al Sadr hasn't been heard from, in public, recently; however, I would almost be willing to bet that he is waiting for what he believes is the absolutely correct moment, to throw the current government out, and finish a popular revolution against it.

THEN, what does the US government do?!? Re-invade?!?

It appears that one huge qualification for work in the US Federal government, is the pathological inability to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion; the current state of the near collapse of the Iraqi government bears witness to this, and painfully clearly.

Brexit: a Challenge to America’s Domination of Europe

The lead financial writer at the Telegraph, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, wrote in 2000:

Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe.

***

The head of the Ford Foundation, ex-OSS officer Paul Hoffman, doubled as head of ACUE [below, we’ll explain who these players are] in the late Fifties. The State Department also played a role. A memo from the European section, dated June 11, 1965, advises the vice-president of the European Economic Community, Robert Marjolin, to pursue monetary union by stealth.

It recommends suppressing debate until the point at which “adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable”.

In other words, the U.S. State Department recommended ramming through the creation of the EU before Europeans knew what was happening.

Working-class people’s voices are rarely heard outside their communities, and almost never within the political or media sphere. However the EU referendum debate has opened up a Pandora’s box of working-class anger and frustration. It is clear that the Westminster politicos are quite unnerved by this. Even I am surprised by how the referendum has captured the attention and the imagination of the same people that only last year told me they had no interest in the general election “because ‘they’ are all the same”.

Some 13 months later they are asking me what I think and arguing with me about the finer points of Brexit. In working-class communities, the EU referendum has become a referendum on almost everything.

Authoritarian Control and Mass Murder In America The Hegelian Dialectic Way

This article will demonstrate how New World Order globalists and their neocon puppets in Washington have consistently employed this repeating cycle of the Hegelian Dialectic consisting of the problem (originally called thesis), reaction (anti-thesis) and solution (synthesis) during this century’s federal governmental domestic policies. Inasmuch as US Empire virtually controls all Western nations as well as nearly all Third World nations, this insidious undemocratic process is unfolding globally on the geopolitical chessboard with the ultimate objective of establishing one world government tyranny.

This endless do-loop application stateside will be analyzed to demonstrate how the feds have amplified and concocted a “homegrown” enemy of radicalized violent extremists to intentionally include millions of non-violent, law abiding US citizens as the identified problem.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate approved a $602 billion annual defense budget that President Obama has promised to veto because the bill does not allow for the closing of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The anti-gun left’s ‘assault weapon’ fixation is absurd and deadly

We don’t need a new gun ban. We need a ban on the political correctness dulling our collective ability to better recognize the people not worthy of society’s trust. And we need to do away with gun free zones. Any chance at all that a concealed carrier may have the opportunity to dispatch one of these bastards to hell before he racks up a high innocent body count sounds more sensible to me than does thinking that murderers obey gun laws. It’s liberal stupidity that’s bringing on all this bloodshed, not AR-15s.

Violence Begets Violence: The Orlando Shootings and the War on Terror

We can rail against ISIS, hate crimes, terror threats, Islamic radicalization, gun control and national security. We can blame Muslims, lax gun laws, a homophobic culture and a toxic politic environmental. We can even use the Orlando shooting as fodder for this year’s presidential campaigns. But until we start addressing the U.S. government’s part in creating, cultivating and abetting domestic and global terrorism—and hold agencies such as the FBI and Defense Department accountable for importing and exporting violence, breeding extremism and generating blowback, which then gets turned loose on an unsuspecting American populace—we’ll be no closer to putting an end to the violence that claimed 50 lives at an Orlando nightclub on June 12, 2016, than we were 15 years ago when nearly 3,000 individuals were killed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Wall Street falls as Fed holds steady and Brexit vote looms

Wall Street fell for a fifth straight session on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged and investors stewed over an impending vote in Britain on whether to leave the European Union.

Major U.S. stock indexes spent most of the day with gains but abruptly fell late in the session, bringing the S&P 500's loss in the past week to 2.2 percent, in large part because of fears that a fractured EU could critically damage an already feeble global economy.

It was the S&P 500's longest losing streak since the five-day decline that culminated in its 2016 low on Feb. 11.

The FBI's Facial Recognition Software Has Never Been Properly Tested For Accuracy

Since 2011 the FBI has used facial recognition software to identify people during criminal investigations. The agency combs through a database of over 411 million photos, including everything from mugshots to driver’s licenses. Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report that’s critical of the technology.

The GAO is concerned about not only the privacy implications, but also the accuracy of the FBI’s facial recognition technology. The report found that the FBI has never tested the accuracy of searches that are asked to yield fewer than 50 photo matches.

Put more simply, if someone from the FBI has a photo of a suspect and runs it through facial recognition while requesting just 2 potential matches, they have no way of knowing if those matches are any more accurate than the next 48 in line. Put even more simply, a lot of innocent people could potentially be identified positively as suspects.

In Police State USA, Parents are Now Sending their Kids to Summer Camp — In Prison

By William N. Grigg

Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a relentless self-promoter who christened himself “The World’s Toughest Sheriff,” has invited Phoenix-area parents to send their grade school and teenage kids to jail for the summer.

“Summer Stars” is a two-day program supposedly intended to teach impressionable youngsters about the rigors of life behind bars, thereby deterring them from bad behavior. The program will be held in two sessions – June 23-24, and July 21-22 – and will be open for students from ages 8 to 18.

Arpaio’s department says that the experience is “designed to show young people the realities of jail life and prevent them from getting involved in illegal activity,” reports KTVK News in Phoenix. Participants will wear prisoner attire, work as inmate laborers, eat jail food, sleep in tents or bunks, and be required to follow jail regulations. Arpaio inexplicably assures parents that the temporary inmates “will have some fun, too” ...

Enjoy camping? You may be considered a terrorist by the US government.

The excessive, overreaching, privacy-violating surveillance conducted on American citizens every day shows that if you like to go camping, you might be considered a terrorist. The financial institutions of America are monitoring every single purchase made and categorically analyzing it.

Per year on average 42 million Americans go camping. To put it into perspective, that means that 3 out of 25 people in America go camping. That is a lot of campers. More importantly, that is a lot of individuals who shop at camping good stores. According to FINCEN, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network; campers are a red flag.

*****What I have been afraid to blog about: THE ESF AND ITS HISTORY (Part 1-5)*****

It is impossible to understand the world today without knowing what the Treasury's Exchange Stabilization Fund is and what it has been doing. Officially in charge of defending the dollar, the ESF is the government agency which controls the New York Fed, runs the CIA's black budget, and is the architect of the world's monetary system (IMF, World Bank, etc). ESF financing (through the OSS and then the CIA) built up the worldwide propaganda network which has so badly distorted history today (including erasing awareness of its existence from popular consciousness). It has been directly involved in virtually every major US fraud/scandal since its creation in 1934: the London gold pool, the Kennedy assassinations, Iran-Contra, CIA drug trafficking, HIV, and worse...

These five videos are the "answer" I have arrived at after three years of blogging on MarketSkeptics.com. They took me a month and a half to make (and months of research). You will not find the material covered anywhere else.

As It Shapes ISIS-Centric Narrative, Orlando Police Reject Freedom of Information Request for Audio of Nightclub Shooter’s 911 Call

Hours after Omar Mateen opened fire in the LGBTQ Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the Orlando Police Department informed the media that Mateen had sworn allegiance to ISIS in a call to its 911 emergency line.

According to FBI officials, Mateen previously pledged simultaneous allegiance to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, two militant groups fighting on opposite sides of the Syrian civil war, and whose members have battled ISIS at various intervals.

On June 13, AlterNet’s Grayzone Project submitted a request under Florida’s public records law for a written transcript and/or an audio recording of any and all phone calls that Mateen made to Orlando’s 911 emergency line on the date of the Pulse Nightclub mass killing.

The Chancellor also warned of an increase in inheritance tax, a rise in the duty on alcohol and petrol and cuts to the police, the NHS, pensions and defence – though foreign aid would not be touched.

Furious Tory MPs said his plans for a 'punishment Budget' would be rejected by MPs on both sides of the Commons and he was taking the public for fools.

The European Commission on Wednesday proposed a new system for enforcing the relocation of migrants around the EU, giving countries that refuse to accept refugees an expensive “pay-to-not-play” option.

The measure, which would set a price of €250,000 per migrant for countries that want to avoid EU-imposed quotas for the resettlement of asylum-seekers, is part of a raft of new proposals aimed at rebooting the EU’s beleaguered strategy for dealing with the migration crisis.

Fascism — It’s the American way, says Ron Paul

For all their alleged anti-fascism, today’s neoconned conservatives and progressives both support the use of force to reshape society and the world. This is the defining characteristic not just of fascists, but also of authoritarians. The true anti-fascists are those who reject the initiation of force. The true path to real free markets, peace, and individual liberty starts with rejecting the bipartisan authoritarianism in favor of the non-aggression principle

CHAOS ERUPTS IN PARIS AS RIOT POLICE UNLEASH ON 50,000-STRONG LABOR PROTEST

French police unleashed tear gas and water cannons on demonstrators Tuesday as tens of thousands packed the streets of Paris in an outpouring of opposition to the government's anti-labor agenda.

The CGT labor union, which helped organized the march, hoped Tuesday's mobilization would be the largest since protests launched over new labor standards, which allow employers to more easily fire workers and create precarious, lower paid positions in place of permanent contracts.

"I’ve been to all the demos since March because I want to live in dignity, not just survive," Aurelien Boukelmoune, a 26-year-old technician, told AFP in Paris. "I want the reforms to be withdrawn, pure and simple. Only then will it stop. For the government's sake, they should withdraw the law, otherwise we'll block the economy."

At least 40 injured, 58 arrested in Paris anti-labor reform protests – police

At least 40 people, including 29 officers, were injured as protesters against France’s highly unpopular proposed labor law clashed with police in Paris. Police made 58 arrests and deployed tear gas and water cannons against the demonstrators.

Twenty-nine officers and 11 rioters have been injured during clashes in the heart of the French capital, police said.

Security forces deployed six water cannons to calm the demonstrators, at least 58 of whom were detained.

Did a delay in response give the gunman more time? Cops face questions over why it took three hours for SWAT teams to storm Orlando nightclub as police chief admits officers may have shot some of the VICTIMS

Orlando police are facing questions over why it took three hours for a SWAT team to storm the nightclub where ISIS fanatic Omar Mateen slaughtered 49 people.

As the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history began to unfold, an off-duty police officer working at a gay nightclub exchanged gunfire with the suspect.

But authorities chose to hold off on letting the tactical units enter Pulse nightclub, where more than 100 people were shot.

Police Chief John Mina has also admitted that some of the victims may have been hit by officers' gun fire.

EU to Target Internet as Part of Counter-Radicalization Plan

Interior Affairs Commissioner Dmitris Avramopoulos said Tuesday that the internet is "our most important battleground" against radicalization.

He said, "The recent attack in Orlando perfectly demonstrated (that) the perpetrator was strongly radicalized on his own, purely by using the internet."

Stop the Monsanto Doctrine from Poisoning Democracy and Hawaii - Sign the petition

On June 15 a panel of federal judges from the Ninth Circuit Court will meet in Honolulu to hear oral arguments from four important cases that may result in the environmental equivalent of a Citizens United decision.

The appellate court will either uphold or overturn four recent decisions by the lower federal District Court in Hawaii that invalidated the power of county governments to enact laws that protect public health and the environment.

I support the democratic right, and responsibility, of these local governments to protect the people of Hawaii from the impact of hundreds of experimental agrochemical farms across the islands that currently spray huge quantities of hazardous pesticides on genetically modified seed crops.

In cases involving the islands of Kauai and Hawaii a federal judge struck down local government laws that would have required buffer zones to prevent pesticide spraying near schools, and open air genetic engineering experiments that were seen as threatening to local organic agriculture.

$25,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO EXPOSURE OF FALSE FLAG AT ORLANDO

*hyperlinks live at source*

By guest author, Thomas Paine. Washington’s Blog has previously documented false flag attacks are a usual expression of government to manipulate policy (site search results on false flag).

The Huffington Post Bloggers Club is offering up to $25,000 for hard evidence that the June 12 Orlando massacre was staged (consider here, here).

The attack fits the same pattern observed dozens of times over the last several years; in particulars, the summary execution of the suspect and disbelief of those who knew him best, including his family.

Yet again, the timing of the attack combined with the demographic of the alleged victims and the demographic of the alleged gunman, dovetail too well with the domestic and geopolitical agendas in Washington. The Orlando shooting is simply perfect for at least six top priorities of the Obama regime:

push the Gay agenda,
repeal the Second Amendment,
justify Orwellian surveillance,
embolden the police state,

HILLARY’S STATE DEPT. BLOCKED INVESTIGATION INTO ORLANDO KILLER’S MOSQUE

Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. shut down an investigation into the mosque Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen attended because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.”

The Fort Pierce Islamic Center, where Mateen worshipped several times a week, was under investigation by both the FBI and DHS as early as 2011 for ties to a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaal which was linked to several terrorist organizations.

But the investigation was shut down under pressure from the Clinton-ran State Dept. and DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office out of fear of offending Muslims, according to recently retired DHS agent Philip Haney.

Saudi Arabia Has Funded 20% Of Hillary's Presidential Campaign, Saudi Crown Prince Claims

In what may be the pinnacle of hypocrisy, moments ago Hillary Clinton, while speaking live on national security and addressing the Orlando shooting took some time from her constant bashing of the Second Amendment and calling for a ban on assault rifles, to say some less than kind words about Saudi Arabia whom it accused of supporting radical organizations. This is what she said:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here you go, folks: as reported at mintpresswnews.com this morning:

Saudi Arabia has paid more than 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for presidential elections, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was quoted as saying Sunday in a news report by the Jordanian Petra News Agency. According to the Middle East Eye news website, the report was later deleted from the agency’s website. However, a snapshot of the original Arabic version was later republished by the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs. “Saudi Arabia has always sponsored both Republican and Democratic Parties of America and… the kingdom also provides with full enthusiasm 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in the U.S. presidential elections despite the fact that some influential forces within the country don’t have a positive look toward supporting the candidate because she is a woman,” the agency’s report quoted Prince Mohammed as saying. The comments came as the Saudi second-in-command traveled to Washington on an official visit to meet with U.S. officials to discuss ties between the two countries, the Saudi state news agency said Monday. It is illegal in the U.S. for presidential candidates to accept funding from foreign governments, but Saudi Arabia and Clinton are no strangers to exchanging favors. The Clinton Foundation, which is chaired by both Hillary and her husband Bill Clinton, disclosed in 2008 that it had accepted up to US$25 million from the Saudi Kingdom in the same year. Other foreign governments who have donated money to the Clintons include Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica, which together donated around US$20 million. Middle East Eye said it attempted to contact the Saudis and Hillary Clinton but failed to receive a response from either party.

If, in fact, this report is true, Clinton has just committed election fraud by illegally taking money from a foreign government to get her elected, and should be immediately be investigated for this.

Of course, with Loretta (hang the climate skeptics) Lynch as the US's AG, this will only happen when pigs fly.

And BTW, Saudi Arabia is a country which still allows female genital mutilation; and Hillary is accepting money from a country (among several) which still allows this barbaric practice?!?

NSA learning how to snoop on pacemakers

The NSA is seeking new ways to satisfy its hunger for raw data by exploiting the so-called internet of things, an emerging network connecting objects such as vehicles, home appliances and biomedical devices.
“We’re looking at it sort of theoretically from a research point of view right now,” the spy agency’s Deputy Director Richard Ledgett told a conference on military technology at Washington’s Newseum on Friday.

The official said biomedical data for the NSA “maybe a niche kind of thing … a tool in the toolbox," according to the Intercept.

“As my job is to penetrate other people’s networks, complexity is my friend,” he said. “The first time you update the software, you introduce vulnerabilities, or variables rather. It’s a good place to be in a penetration point of view.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such monitoring of pacemakers could also, potentially, lead to hacking attacks on the pacemakers of people the US government deems "politically undesirable" creating heart attacks in its victims, and making it appear that it was simply a case of "device malfunction."

"Subtle assassinations"; a wave of the future for US intelligence agencies?!? I frankly wouldn't bet against it.

There are numerous security flaws in many such devices, but right now, software forensic analysis can only determined if a device has been altered after it is far too late to save the person whose device was hacked.

Thousands protest against drones at U.S. Air Force base in Germany

Several thousand demonstrators formed a human chain along the perimeter of a U.S. Air Force Base in southwest Germany on Saturday in protest against drone operations by the United States.

The demonstration was organized by the alliance "Stop Ramstein - No Drone War", which says the Ramstein base transmits information between operators in the United States and unmanned drone aircraft in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Syria.

Police estimated 3-4,000 people had formed the chain close to the base, which serves as the headquarters for the U.S. Air Forces in Europe. Organizers spoke of 5-7,000 people. No comment was available on Saturday from officials at Ramstein.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bless you, peaceful German protesters!! Way to go.

And I have to wonder; how deeply has the use of drone warfare so become the "new normal" for Americans over the past 15 years, that they are not protesting this insanity?!?

The concept of due process was firmly embedded in American jurisprudence, before the Bush/Bama era. But now, people in foreign countries (and probably, soon, right here at home)can be extrajudicially assassinated, just because the President believes he is "legally justified" in doing so.

President Obama, an alleged "expert" (and lecturer) on Constitutional Law, appears to believe that he can throw due process out the window in these cases, and that is more than a little scary as a precedent.

The realities here are that the US government doesn't know, really, who these drone strikes are hitting, which creates more collateral damage, which creates more jihadists.

It is a marvelous mechanism for creating endless wars.

And how far away are we from extrajudicial assassinations here at home?!? My friends, they have already happened, and are an historical realty for this country; a reality which, I am afraid, may well get worse before it gets better.

World View: In a Reversal, Obama Allows U.S. Troops in Afghanistan in Combat Roles

In a significant reversal of policy, President Barack Obama’s administration will now all American soldiers to fight alongside Afghan troops in combat situations, and will allow close air support in combat. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter confirmed the change in policy, and said,

This is using the forces we have… in a better way, basically, as we go through this fighting season, rather than being simply reactive. This makes good sense. It’s a good use of the combat power that we have there.

By “fighting season,” Carter is referring to the fact that the Taliban are most active during the summer months.

The change in policy comes one day after John Sopko, appointed by Obama as Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), said that the situation in Afghanistan is continuing to deteriorate:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, President Obama has just made one thing painfully clear: we are never leaving Afghanistan!!

Too many corporations, particularly those which are a part of the military industrial complex are making a killing (frequently, in the literal sense) from this war; the cheap heroin is flowing from Afghanistan poppies, to be used for off the shelf US covert operations; and neither the US military or government can ever admit it has made an horrific mistake with the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

THE SURVEILLANCE STATE DIDN’T STOP THE ORLANDO ATTACK — NOR WILL THE RESULTANT POLICE STATE

Mass surveillance has, for the larger segment of the U.S. populace, become an integral facet in the illusory feeling of security. But does it serve any purpose at all — other than providing the Surveillance State a handy excuse for keeping tabs on anyone it chooses, while simultaneously quashing every one of our paltry remaining legal rights?

While it may be comforting to feel the overarching blanket of indiscriminate surveillance keeps us all safe from harm, the deaths of at least 50 people in an Orlando nightclub prove indisputably the contrary.

In fact, the National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation — and, indeed, every agency — attempting to employ the weary excuse they spy on you to keep you safe can be disproven in the events of the early morning hours this past Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of the surveillance the US government has done, all the alleged "intelligence" the US government has allegedly gathered, failed utterly to prevent this horrific attack on this club in Orlando.

So, is more surveillance, and the continuing devolution into a total, fascistic police state the answer for this country, in terms of allegedly "protecting" its citizens?!?

In two simple words, "HELL, no!!"

Mike and I did a little island hopping to visit a friend recently.

And both times, coming and going, I was patted down.

And I so wanted to ask the TSA people who did this, but understood I couldn't, because they would most probably, punitively, have caused me to miss my flight, "Do you have any understanding of how utterly stupid this is?!? I am a Christian pacifist activist, who directs a church choir at a local Methodist faith community. What do you think I'm going to do, have my choir sing "notes of mass destruction"?!? And BTW, every time I have to run the gauntlet through TSA to catch a flight, I am furious that I am being treated as though this country were under Code Napoleon law, where one is considered guilty until proven innocent. American jurisprudence takes the absolutely the opposite stand. When, please, did the law of the land in the USA stop being the law of the land?!?"

Of course, that dialogue was completely internal, and I just smiled at the logic-challenged individuals who believed, for even one second, that I could possibly be a "baddie".

But the surveillance, pat-downs, and general demeanings of average American citizens by police-state representatives doesn't translate, ever, into any more security: the incident in Orlando just proved that.

These measures are simply meant to intimidate citizens into swallowing whatever the US government dictates, period, end of discussion, without any meaningful dialogue, or critical thinking.

Welcome to Amerika, my friends: the land of the cowed, and the home of the surveilled!!

NULAND TO CONGRESS: WE SPEND $100 MIL A YEAR TRYING TO DESTABILIZE RUSSIA

On Tuesday [June 7, 2016], the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations scheduled a two-hour anti-Russian hate-fest. Lies, misinformation and jaw-dropping stupidity were on full display. The star witness of course, was Tricky Vicky Nuland.

These congressional committee meetings crack me up. In theory, they’re supposed to be interviewing witnesses to collect information. In reality it’s a platform for congressmen to make speeches satisfying the special interests who own them and then they read questions from prepared notes provided to them by “experts” or lobbyists (or maybe the witnesses themselves). Then they get the answers they want to hear from the witnesses. It is 100% theater.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

While this country's infrastructure crumbles; while kids are forced to drink water that rots their brains with lead, and gives them a huge number of other health problems; while homeless Vets sleep in their cars, not getting the health care they so desperately need; and GMO food makes people mortally ill, what "brainacs" in Congress believe that it is perfectly fine for this country to be spending $100 million dollars annually to "destabilize" Russia?!?

Russia is not the problem here; the problem is the absolutely pathological inability of ANYONE in the US government being able to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion, coupled with alleged Congressional Representatives "being in bed" with the corporations which fund them, covertly or overtly.

Radioactive Ranchers? Elements Found Downwind of Intensive Fracking

The companies were drilling lateral wells, which turn 90 degrees and travel for kilometres underground, extending under people's barns and homes. (Tight oil costs more to extract and produces lower quantities of oil.)

As industry fracked these deep, far-reaching wells with millions of gallons of water, toxic chemicals, and sand under high pressure and then burned off unwanted raw gas, the Hawkwoods and many of their neighbours began complaining about noxious emissions and earth tremors.

Some officials with the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) initially responded to general complaints in the region by saying fracking was proven and safe and that it couldn't cause earthquakes -- claims now proven false by a variety of scientific studies.

5 REASONS TO QUESTION THE OFFICIAL STORY OF THE ORLANDO SHOOTING

FBI Foreknowledge, ISIS Sympathies, Taliban Ties

What may at first sound like an instance of senseless violence, brings with it a number of other questions. For instance, the FBI was already well aware of Mateen and his connections to radical jihad and terrorism. According to CNN’s article, “50 Killed in Florida Nightclub, Shooter Pledged ISIS Allegiance,” two officials tell CNN that the FBI had investigated Mateen at some point for possibly having ties to or sympathizing with Islamic extremism. A law enforcement official said there were two cases opened involving Mateen but the probes didn’t result in enough evidence to charge him with anything.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the LGBT community in Orlando and beyond: you are all absolutely in my prayers, and this massacre should never have been allowed to happen, period, end of discussion.

And the FBI?!? It should now be known as the Federal Bureau of Idiocy; the Federal Bureau of Intimidation; the Federal Bureau of Incompetency; or the Federal Bureau of Impotence.

Take your pick.

Functioning intelligence agencies, which actually CAN protect the people of their respective countries around the world, are collectively shaking their heads on this.

Please note that this agency, and this entire government, under President Obama's watch, couldn't (or wouldn't) protect you from this act of terror, even though the FBI had interviewed this guy several times.

And remember; so-called "gun free zones" create soft targets for bad guys to hit.

Just look at Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Chicago, also an allegedly "gun-free zone". As reported this morning by chicago.cbslocal.com this morning on last weekend's gun violence:

Seven people were killed and at least 35 others — including a 5-year-old girl — were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday night and Monday morning.

So, after the horrific numbness starts to lift; after the last memorial services are done to commemorate the fallen; after the last candles go out; and and after the last flowers are placed in loving memory of those whose lives got snuffed out, you, and we, need to delve deep into some kick-ass logic....

And there are a couple of terribly uncomfortable questions you have to ask yourself, when something like this happens in this country and beyond: who benefits from this tragedy, and how are they going to spin this?!?!?

Of course, there will be a demand for more stringent gun control in this country, but that never, ever affects the bad people, who are going to use guns to get what they want anyway.

The US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan has gone from bad to worse; will this be used as the "justification" for yet more US blood and money spent in this hubristic war of conquest, which has gone so horribly badly?!?

Right now, I would not bet against this; but only time will tell.

But in the meanwhile, to the members of the LGBT community in Orlando and beyond: I would strongly caution you to choose not to continue to be potential victims.

The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution was written into the Bill of Rights by people who understood the evil and misery which could be caused by governmental overreach, and the need for a population to be able to protect itself against that, or the evil madness of someone coming to hurt you, or people you care about, as happened in in Orlando.

Buy a licensed firearm, and get trained in how to use it effectively and responsibly.

Because let's be clear here; one person, with a concealed carry permit, could have prevented the scope of damage which happened here in a heartbeat; far fewer would have been killed, or injured.

Through this incident, United States Government has demonstrated, beyond a reasonable doubt, that it is completely incapable of protecting you.

Furthermore, the convention premises will be staffed, patrolled, and heavily guarded by GUN-CARRYING-GUARDS! How very interesting! Especially since Hillary wants to obliterate—like she did her emails—the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—the right to bear arms. If Democrat Party ‘high hats’ hate guns so much when it comes to ordinary citizens, they sure love them when it comes to protecting themselves. What a dichotomy!

Bureaucratic Insanity: Free to be Slaves

Schools in America today are less concerned about the overall welfare of students than they are with making sure that they obey all the rules, no matter how pointless, and produce good test scores. The emphasis on mindless obedience and rote learning prepares them for dehumanizing office work, where employers don’t even try to pretend that they care about the welfare of their workers. Instead, they shame them for taking vacation time and force them to work overtime for free. Employers and school administrators only care about what they can produce: children are treated no differently from widgets, and employees are treated no differently from robots.

'Leave' Takes Shocking 19-Point Lead In Brexit Poll - "If It Happens, Gold Will Be The World's Strongest Currency"

The headlines go from bad to worse for the UK and EU establishment as yet another new poll this weekend, by Opinium, shows "Brexit" leading by a remarkable 19 points (52% chose to leave the EU against 33% choosing to keep the status quo). This result comes after 2 polls Friday night showing a 10-point lead for "leave" which sparked anxiety across markets. This surge in "leave" probability comes despite an additional 1.5 million voters having registered this week (which many expected to increase "remain" support). Further anger towards EU was exposed when former cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith warned that seven new prisons will need to be built in the UK by 2030 to cope with the rising number of migrant criminals (presumedly due to 'staying' in the EU).

The Declaration of Independence: Still relevent today?

Lately, the purveyors of more war and dictatorship have taken to diismissing protests that various government actions violate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by simply declaring those documents as irrelevent, being that they are almost 250 years old.

But the fact is that the Constituion does change over time, through the approved process of Amendment, and today's Constitution bears little resemblance to the one signed on Congress all those years ago. Like the White House itself, little of the original actually remains. But the founding principle remains the same. For government to be legitimate and legal, it must constrain itself within the limits imposed by that Constitution.

As for the Declaration, it was never the law of the land, but a symbolic statement. Yet not only is it still relevant, it is even more relevant today that at any time I have been alive.

Posing with a Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifle, Ovadia tagged a Palestinian woman Sherrii ElKaderi, and wrote: “I killed 13 childrens today and ur next f***ing muslims go to hell bitches.”

Texas Lieutenant Governor slammed for tweet sent after Florida shooting: ‘You are a disgrace’

The office of Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and evangelical Christian, on Sunday deleted a tweet many saw as offensive and insensitive that was sent out shortly after the deadly attack on a gay nightclub in Florida.

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows,” read the Bible verse Patrick sent out on his official Twitter account a few hours after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history that left at least 50 dead.

His office was not immediately available for comment but has told local media, including the Dallas Morning News, that the tweet had been scheduled for release well before the shooting. The office, which regularly sends out a Bible verse on Sundays, has since deleted it and replaced with another passage, they said.

But the deleted tweet from a politician who has condemned same-sex marriage and fought against LGBT rights still raised the ire of those who accused Patrick of blaming the victims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Lieutenant Governor Patrick is suffering from " EXTREME selective memory disorder (ESMD) when it comes to Jesus' exhortations to "Love ye one another" (and remember, Jesus did NOT say, "EXCEPT...if they are LGBT), and "Judge not lest ye be judged."

And for this guy to be blaming the victims of this attack?!?

THAT is tacky nastiness, writ large.

Corporate Media Has Complete Collapse Over Hillary Nomination, Hillary’s Lawsuit & More

In this episode of Redacted Tonight, host Lee Camp reveals video of lawyers who have proof that there was election fraud in California that could overturn the primary. As the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton has benefited from voter disenfranchisement all over the country, while Bernie Sanders, the insurgent candidate, has been disadvantaged. Furthermore, the corporate mainstream media like MSNBC and CNN have been "all in" for Hillary from the start, which Lee further exposes by showing that the MSM is rushing to "coronate" Hillary as the Democratic presidential nominee.

Andrew Cuomo and Other Democrats Launch Severe Attack on Free Speech to Protect Israel

ONE OF THE greatest free speech threats in the West is the growing, multi-nation campaign literally to outlaw advocacy of boycotting Israel. People get arrested in Paris — the site of the 2015 “free speech” (for Muslim critics) rally — for wearing pro-boycott T-shirts. Pro-boycott students on U.S. campuses — where the 1980s boycott of apartheid South Africa flourished — are routinely sanctioned for violating anti-discrimination policies. Canadian officials have threatened to criminally prosecute boycott advocates. British government bodies have legally barred certain types of boycott advocacy. Israel itself has outright criminalized advocacy of such boycotts. Notably, all of this has been undertaken with barely a peep from those who styled themselves free speech crusaders when it came time to defend anti-Muslim cartoons.

Judge Jeanine Paving The Way For Comey To Cave On Clinton?

She then says, “The sad news is the fix is in, folks, and I just told you why. But then you say Judge, how could the fix be in if, as you say, FBI Director Comey is such an honorable guy? I say it because there would be a Constitutional crisis in this country if an indictment were to happen. And Jim Comey, as ethical as he is, respects the United States government too much to let that happen.”

Pirro appeared to be offering an exit, an excuse for Comey to capitulate, a foundation for an argument through which he can save face as he cowers to the establishment crime syndicate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously yes. And to turn the argument back on her, how is the "best interest of the country” served by allowing criminals to continue to run the government?

Cyprus Officials in Stealth Talks with Victoria Nuland on Turkish Troop Plan

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades is holding secret negotiations this week with Victoria Nuland (lead image, right), the US State Department official in charge of Turkey, Ukraine and Russia, on a plan to maintain Turkish military forces in Cyprus under the flag of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Anastasiades has sent his aide, Nicos Christodoulides (lead image, left), to negotiate in Washington; he met with Nuland on Monday. After losing control of the Cyprus Parliament to an increasingly nationalist vote in an election on May 22, Anastasiades has remained behind at the presidential palace in Nicosia, where he met on Tuesday with the NATO official now conducting Cyprus negotiations for the United Nations, Espen Barth Eide. The Cyprus Foreign Minister, Ioannis Kasoulides, is due to met US Secretary of State John Kerry, on June 13.

Generation Snowflake: Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings And The Wussification Of Our Young People

Why do so many of our young people instantly break down in tears the moment anything seriously offends them? Have we raised an entire generation that has been so coddled and that is so spineless that it is completely incapable of dealing with the harsh realities of the modern world? At colleges and universities all over America, students are now demanding “safe spaces” where anything and everything that could possibly make them feel “uncomfortable” is banned. And “trigger warnings” are being placed on some of our great literary classics because they might cause some students to feel “unsafe” because they may be reminded of a past trauma.

.01%’s Bozo ‘democracy’: War Criminal lying Clinton v. Racist WrestleMania Trump! America’s choice: Staged fear-show for slaves OR arrests to end Wars of Aggression, bankster economics, corporate media lies, and implement OBVIOUS solutions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The US 2016 presidential stage-show is not an election because 25%+ of the “votes” are from electronic “voting” machines that do not provide countable receipts. Obviously: the definition of election includes verifiable vote counting, and without that component we have to call the American system of selecting representatives something other than democracy with elections. Several videos are in this article, with Princeton and Stanford as leading universities pointing out that election fraud is the obvious motivation to produce “counting” machines that provide zero evidence of what they claim to count. Please consider this 2008 2-minute parody from The Onion as the closest documentation we have to the facts:

But that’s the fourth most important fact of this non-election stage-show, as the third most critical element is the non-choice of Americans between Clinton, a lying War Criminal, and Trump, a cartoonish racist buffoon.

Larry Kudlow: 'Overthrow the Establishment' to Fix the Economy

Newsmax Finance Insider Larry Kudlow is fed up with the way global central banks have been trying to revive the economy.

Nothing they have done has worked. So there’s really only one option left, he told CNBC.

“Overthrow the establishment. Now's the time,” said the CNBC senior contributor who also hosts a syndicated radio-talk show. "Overthrow the establishment," urged Kudlow, who was a former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan.

“We need a different model. In other words, zero interest rates, or negative interest rates, and tons and tons of government spending for all these G-7 countries have not worked,” he said.

Unfortunately, thanks to years of the increasingly ignorant masses, our republic has evolved from a system government that at least made an effort to operate under the premise of protecting American interests into a dangerous enemy of those of us born in this republic turned mob ruled democracy.

The president has gotten in on this horrible trend by acting like a one-man band government entity that legislates through an executive order avalanche which has placed unparalleled levels of economic, moral, and military dangers against our nation. President Obama has done more to protect and defend his fellow Muslims and their interests in one year than for the United States over eight years.

“The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horsedrawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but a common right which he has under his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Under this constitutional guaranty one may, therefore, under normal conditions, travel at his inclination along the public highways or in public places, and while conducting himself in an orderly and decent manner, neither interfering with nor disturbing another’s rights, he will be protected, not only in his person, but in his safe conduct.”

Canada’s Pro-Israel Lobby Attempts to Shut Down “Peaceful Pressure” against Israel’s Systematic Violations of International Law

The latest attempt of the Zionist lobby in Canada to shut down attempts to organize peaceful pressure against the state of Israel’s systematic violations of international law came at what must have seemed an opportune moment. On May 17, the day that Bill 202, “the Standing Up Against Anti-Semitism Act, 2016: An Act respecting participation in boycotts and and other anti-Semitic actions”, was presented to the Ontario provincial legislature in Toronto and quickly passed first reading, Ontario Premier Katherine Wynne was in Israel, where she warmly shook the hand of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Labour “anti-Semitism” witch hunt claims new victims

The “anti-Semitism” witch hunt in the UK Labour Party against leftist supporters of Palestinian rights is continuing to claim new victims.

The latest is Marlene Ellis, a Black activist within the Momentum grouping, who was suspended on Friday. Ellis told The Electronic Intifada her suspension was an attack on free speech.

But campaigners have scored the first win in pushing back.

A Jewish activist expelled from the Labour Party for referring to the transatlantic slave trade as an “African holocaust” was cleared of anti-Semitism and readmitted to the party at the end of May.

Jackie Walker told The Electronic Intifada on Monday she had yet to receive an explanation for her suspension.

Democratic Party leadership lines up against BDS — and the ‘nuts’ who support it

How intentional was Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order aimed at BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) on Sunday? Very intentional. The Democratic Party leadership is lining up behind Israel and against BDS in the weeks leading up to the Democratic convention next month and a platform fight over the party’s positions on Israel.

Of all that separates Hillary Clinton’s and Bernie Sanders’s bases, the Israel issue is now the clearest, and BDS could be the embattled ground. The Green Party nominee’s endorsement of BDS surely resonates for many of Bernie Sanders youthful supporters.

Bilderberg Agenda 2016 | The World's Elite are Scared to Death of the "Precariat" – the 'Awakening Ones'

If there's one thing to take away from this years Bilderberg meeting it is that the elite is scared to death of the precariat.

That's a term coined by the British economist Guy Standing, referring to a class of people who feel less confident about society in general, either because of underemployment, poor economic conditions, political disenfranchisement, or to be perfectly frank, because they realize modern civilization is a fraud.

In other words, the precariat are people who are beaten down by the system and who have woken up to some degree as a result. If you are reading these words, you are most likely considered part of the precariat, and the elite is afraid of this group of people arguably more than anything else.

Why Israel is blocking access to its archives

Most of the files should have been accessible after 15 years, with the most top-secret documents locked away for up to 70 years. In many cases, Akevot says, the classified status of documents has expired, but they have still not been made public. Reasons for denial of access are rarely given.

In other instances, documents that were already declassified – some of them decades ago – have been re-sealed and are now unavailable.

Despite the mounting secrecy, historic war crimes are still coming to light.

NATO Will Suppress Protests In Poland

On May 18th, 2016, the well-known Polish politician Mateusz Piskorski was arrested on charg-es of spying for “third countries.” Shortly before, he wrote an article that predicted the beginning of mass political repressions against NATO opponents in Poland and Europe as a whole. He was right. Katehon presents the following exclusive translation of his article:

Predictions concerning the upcoming NATO summit in July in Warsaw are beginning to clearly indicate that today the alliance’s goal is first and foremost preventing the emergence of social movements demanding the liberation of Europe from underneath the tutelage of the United States. As can be seen, the Financial Times’ inadvertent uttering of the words of one of the Polish Army’s senior commanders show just what decisions can be expected this summer. These are decisions which completely undermine not only the sovereignty of Warsaw in the field of foreign policy, but also clearly speak to the fact that from this moment on NATO is supposed to be a police force ready to participate in the pacification of eventual social protests or intervene in the affairs of domestic Polish politics.

How Fiat Money Destroys Culture

One of the central features of a fiat money system is that it tends to produce near-permanent price inflation. This contrasts with the workings of an economy based on natural monies such as gold and silver. Here the price levels tend to stay flat over the long run or decline, especially in the presence of vigorous economic growth. We saw this throughout the nineteenth century in both Europe and the US, where deflationary growth has been the rule.

Beware the Useful Idiots

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.

NEW NATION, LONG WAR

Rebel forces in southern Sudan began using child soldiers long before seceding from Sudan in 2011. The United States, on the other hand, passed a law in 2008 that banned providing military assistance to nations that use child soldiers. The law was called the Child Soldiers Prevention Act, or CSPA, but after South Sudan’s independence, the White House issued annual waivers that kept aid flowing to the world’s newest nation despite its use of child soldiers. President Obama stated in 2012 that the waiver that year was in “the national interest of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Someone in the press needs to have the "male attributes" to challenge her on this issue of those waivers, allowing South Sudan to conscript child soldiers.

Please: don't listen to what Clinton says in her campaign speeches; after all, it was President Obama in 2008, who said, publicly, that she would say ANYTHING in order to get elected.

Rather, look at the history of her actions at the State Department and as New York State Senator: she supported the disastrous war in Iraq; the assassination of Qaddafi in Libya; and created an absolute fiasco of the alleged "Reset" with Russia.

IS this REALLY the person we want running our country?!?

MOSCOW WARNS OF PROMPT RESPONSE AFTER US SENDS DESTROYER TO BLACK SEA

Having sent not one but two aircraft carriers into the Mediterranean in what, as we reported yesterday, was meant to be a "clear message to Russia", the US decided to further antagonize Russia when on Monday it sent the US destroyer Porter in the Black Sea "for a series of drills with allies and forces of partner nations in what the United States called a routine deployment", the US Navy announced. To be sure, the US Navy was quite clear about its intentions with these deployments: “It provides some needed presence in the Med to check…the Russians,” the official said. “The unpredictability of what we did with Truman kind of makes them think twice.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question one has to ask is, why is the US government confronting Russia militarily in an election year?!?

The answers are complex, but the following scenarios are hardly improbable.

First, the US economy is in a tailspin, except for the fortunes of the 1 percenters.

Under President Obama's watch, decently paying jobs, which used to be the bedrock of a comfortable, middle-class existence, continue to be offshored and outsourced, leaving many Americans with no choice but to be working several minimum wage jobs, if they can get them, and running further and further into personal debt.

To say that there is a lot of anger and resentment on this issue, in the heartland, is like saying that the Titanic hit a little bit of ice.

So if in fact there is a war against Russia and/or China before the election, it will have been very cynically created, in order to attempt to misdirect Americans' anger at the horrific economic conditions in which so many find themselves toward those two nations.

Secondly, internal polling by the White House may indicate that Trump could well pull off a miracle, and soundly win the 2016 election, even with all of the vote fraud and vote suppression the Democrats can muster.

Should this happen, the Establishment will want to pile on as much pain and misery on the Trump Administration as humanly possible, by initiating a war with which Trump must contend, even before he has taken the oath of office, and perhaps deliberately crashing the economy just as hard as they can before he becomes President.

Thirdly, should Clinton win/steal the election, she very much wants to be perceived as a "war president"; the smell of blood (other people's, of course) is the ultimate aphrodisiac of power for her.

Expect her to recklessly declare war against Russia and China, as her first act as President, rather than looking for any possible way of diffusing geopolitical tensions with both countries.

Look for her to reinstitute the draft; and if there is any major public protest against such wars, look for her to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and declare martial law.

After all, her good friends on Wall Street, and in the banking industry, will be making billions from such activities; and for her, money isn't everything: it is the only thing.

I would, frankly, hate to be the military strategists and weapons specialists who, ultimately, will have to tell her that the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

Clinton should be getting educated on these issues now, but in her hubris, believes she will have "plenty of time" to be schooled on these once she has taken the Oath of Office; she absolutely does not have the luxury of time at all, if she is looking at winning a war against Russia and/or China.

NEW YORK TIMES SAYS FAIR USE OF 300 WORDS WILL RUN YOU ABOUT $1800

Fair use is apparently the last refuge of a scofflaw. Following on the heels of a Sony rep's assertion that people could avail themselves of fair use for the right price, here comes the New York Times implying fair use not only does not exist, but that it runs more than $6/word.

Obtaining formal permission to use three quotations from New York Times articles in a book ultimately cost two professors $1,884. They’re outraged, and have taken to Kickstarter — in part to recoup the charges, but primarily, they say, to “protest the Times’ and publishers’ lack of respect for Fair Use.”
These professors used quotes from other sources in their book about press coverage of health issues, but only the Gray Lady stood there with her hand out, expecting nearly $2,000 in exchange for three quotes totaling less than 300 words.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times has gone to an absolutely new moral and legal low in this case, and you would almost think that their Governance Board would be thoroughly embarrassed for having done this.

Of course, to get to that level of power by consistently supporting the US Government's narrative, no matter how false or misleading, or ultimately hurtful to the American it may be, one has to have had ones's conscience surgically removed.

I would strongly suggest that people stop reading the NYT all together, after letting their advertisers know that you have stopped reading it, therefore their ads, either in print or on-line, are completely futile.

Such a large-scale action would potentially either bankrupt the paper, or cause a change in its corporate policy; I am not sure which, but the result of such a protest will most likely have some effect.

EMAILS SHOW MAJOR CLINTON DONOR PUT ON INTELLIGENCE BOARD DESPITE LACK OF EXPERIENCE

When presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, a committee dealing with nuclear arms issues was staffed by many experts in the field, and one securities trader from Chicago with no known intelligence background. State Department emails, released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Citizens United, revealed some details behind how this may have happened, ABC News reported.

Rajiv K. Fernando had given substantial contributions and raised money for Clinton’s 2008 Presidential campaign. He also gave up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation before his appointment to the State Department board. In 2011, ABC News asked the Department how Fernando was selected for the board, and some of the released emails showed how Department officials reacted to the question.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Judging from her behaviour as Secretary of State, Clinton's "pay to play" cronyism will not end if she steals/wins the election in November.

Expect horrifically unqualified candidates to be vetted as "advisors" in various areas of her administration, just because they have been huge donors to the Clinton Foundation, and the intelligent, experienced, knowledgeable people to get permanently frozen out, in favor of her political contributors.

This Is a Usurper, Not a Candidate: California Primary Was Stolen, And Hillary’s “Nomination a Coup”

It’s lights out for democracy. No surprise for those who have been paying attention. But if this is your first time through it, this election has been totally rigged. From the start, it was clear that Hillary had been chosen and given a path. Possibly it was a concession forged back in 2008 in which she agreed to stand aside for Obama in exchange for “her turn.” -- Antithetical to our deeply held democratic processes, the entire 2016 contest is and has been rigged so that one person’s quest for power can be satisfied. 2008 was an embarrassing stumble. 2016 is the last pageant she’s willing to go through, and she was determined to win.

Victim in accidental police shooting dies

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has confirmed the homeowner who was accidentally shot by a Henry County Police Department officer Wednesday night reportedly died in the hospital.

According to Scott Dutton, of GBI public affairs, William Powell, 63, died in the hospital Thursday from a gunshot wound he sustained in the neck.

Though, media reports were circulating Thursday evening of Powell’s death, the GBI released the information after all family members were notified Friday morning.

“Preliminary review of the 911 call indicates that the officers were at the wrong location,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation stated.

Obama, Immigration Propaganda and Our National Identity

Obama’s crusade to divide Americans on the basis of race, gender and income has done immeasurable damage to our society. His exploitation of the immigration issue and his depiction of patriots as bigots are making it worse. These liberals know we aren’t bigots. But we know that many of them, in their heart of hearts, don’t embrace the American idea, which is one reason they are trying to flood the borders and dilute what it means to be an American.

Why Trump Must Not Apologize — The day of the establishment is over

Assume, as we must, that Trump believes what he said. Why, then, should he apologize for speaking the truth, as he sees it? To do so would be to submit to extortion, to recant, to confess to a sin he does not believe he committed. It would be to capitulate to pressure, to tell a lie to stop the beating, to grovel before the Inquisition of Political Correctness.

The FBI is on the cusp of obtaining three extremely dangerous new powers

In recent months, the FBI has taken to the press and to congress to complain about how the increasingly widespread adoption of end-to-end encryption in commercial technologies like the iPhone and Whatsapp is resulting in an intelligence blackout, a process the feds call “going dark.” But three items in the news over the past few weeks make clear that the debate about encryption is only one aspect of a larger FBI campaign to expand its access to and exclusive control over huge quantities of extremely sensitive information about us. Despite FBI Director James Comey’s claims, the problem isn’t that the government has insufficient access to information about us; it’s that officials have too easy access to too much information. And soon, if we don’t act to stop these power grabs, the imbalance of power between ordinary people and the state—wherein the secretive intelligence agencies know everything about us while we know next to nothing about them—will grow worse.

Terrorism as Pretext for Intervention in Middle East

In order to understand the hype surrounding the phenomena of Islamic radicalism and terrorism, we need to understand the prevailing global economic order and its prognosis. What the pragmatic economists have forecasted about the free market capitalism has turned out to be true; whether we like it or not. A kind of global economic entropy has set into motion. The money is flowing from the area of high monetary density to the area of low monetary density. The rise of the BRICS countries in the 21st century is the proof of this tendency. BRICS are growing economically because the labor in developing economies is cheap; labor laws and rights are virtually nonexistent; expenses on creating a safe and healthy work environment are minimal; regulatory framework is lax; expenses on environmental protection are negligible; taxes are low; and in the nutshell, windfalls for the multinational corporations are huge

Frm BBC Journalist: Why Bilderberg Won't Allow BREXIT

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is possible that even if the people vote for the BREXIT, Parliament will bow to their masters the money-junkies in Brussels and sell the British people into foreign servitude.

Of course, the last British ruler with that kind of arrogance was Charles I.

I’m Hillificent Clonebama… and I’m running for president…

If you believe these elections are not a sham written like a script, I’ll sell you the Golden Gate Bridge. If you believe our wars are not engineered in advance and then sold to us once they’ve decided to go ahead and start them, then I’ll sell you the Statue of Liberty. And I’ll also sell you the Constitution because the United States government is obviously not using it anymore.
