French PM Valls stakes political career on union fight

Engaged in a fierce tug of war with unions and some of his own party over labour reforms, France's embattled Prime Minister Manuel Valls has staked his political career on staring down the crisis.

US illegal: History of rogue empire REQUIRING arrests in the present. American families lied into WW1 under zero national security risk to expand Empires (6 of 11)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.” – President Harry Truman, Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman (1974) by Merle Miller, pg. 26.

In the century we were all born into, the US unconstitutionally crushed lawful 1st Amendment dissent from US war in Europe in WW1 through the Espionage Act of 1917 and Sedition Act of 1918. Let’s look at the “reason” given the US public to embrace war in the “current event” known at the time as the “Great War,” and now as World War One.

Here comes another dangerous expansion of government power online

The Senators’ proposal has no grounding in what would actually keep us—or our computers—safe. Rather, it seems motivated by the same vague fears of a hypothetical computer takeover that overtook Congress (after watching a clip from WarGames) back in 1986. In that way, Whitehouse and Graham may be keeping true to the CFAA’s roots. But now it’s time to focus on reality.

The UK is selling record quantities of arms – including missiles, bombs and grenades – to countries listed by the Foreign Office as having dubious human rights records

More than £3bn of British-made weaponry was licensed for export last year to 21 of the Foreign Office’s 30 “human rights priority countries” – those identified by the government as being where “the worst, or greate

Another Real Estate Crash Is Coming: Legendary Market Timer Unloads His Positions: “They’ve Sold Deferred Reality For So Long…”

If you haven’t heard yet, median home prices in the United States are on a tear having reached all-time highs in April. To boot, rental prices have gone insane, showing a year-over-year inflationary increase of 8%. On top of that, stock markets are rocketing back to their own all time highs based on the premise that the U.S. economy is seeing healthy growth. By all official accounts, it appears that we’re back on track.

Letting Hillary be Hillary

It’s fairly obvious that Hillary’s electronic misadventures stem from either stupendous incompetence, pathological mendacity or both. And this week, the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General released a report which fingered the former Madame Secretary for the kind of crimes against the State which normally involves someone doing real prison time.

Britain’s Prevent strategy: Potential implications for civil liberties

HILLARY EMAIL MIGRAINE

Hillary Clinton’s email headache is about to get even worse. A scathing inspector general’s report this week was just the first in what is likely to be a series of official actions related to her private server stemming from the FBI, a federal courthouse and Capitol Hill.

Operation Condor: Argentina's last military dictator jailed for role in international death squad

Argentina’s last military dictator, 88-year-old former general Reynaldo Bignone, was today sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in Operation Condor, under which an international death squad was set up by six South American military dictatorships during the 1970s and 80s. The plan allowed death squads from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay to cross into one another’s territory to kidnap, torture and kill political opponents who had fled across the border.

Truthout interviews economist Paul Craig Roberts


With the upcoming presidential election in the US, do you believe any of the candidates offer any hope for a change of political, economic or foreign policy direction?

The government is not run by presidents. It's run by several hundred assistant secretaries, and they have nominal bosses called cabinet secretaries ... when you get elected, you're excited and want to get going and you've got to get all of these appointees through the Senate, you end up having to appoint the people the Senate's going to confirm. Otherwise, you never have a government. So unless the revolution also changed the Senate, so that they were to say, "Yes, let's appoint all of these people who will bring change, and undermine all of our relationships with the power structure, the people who give the political contributions to keep us in office, let's wreck all that and appoint somebody who's going to make change," that's not going to happen!

Goldman Sachs Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving... To The Clintons

By now we all know that Goldman Sachs is the gift that keeps on giving to the Clintons. Whether it's paying millions out for speeches, investing in family member's failing hedge fund ventures, or donating hundreds of thousands to the Clinton Foundation, Goldman seems to be keeping a close relationship with the family.

What's a more fun development to watch (other than to see Lloyd Blankfein lose money invested with a Clinton son-in-law) is how persistent The Intercept is being with Hillary about Goldman. Every chance it gets, The Intercept has a reporter asking Clinton about Goldman related items, and of course they never get an answer.

Earlier this year The Intercept caught up with Hillary and asked if the transcripts of the speeches given to Goldman would be released. Clinton's response was just to laugh of course, because as we all know, those will never be released... on purpose anyway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that Clinton's very wounded presidential campaign is about to become....more wounded.

Bernie Sanders may well be right, to contest this all the way; by November, Clinton may have to "retire" from public life, if certain revelations come forward, and are proven true.

Pleading for Peace in Chicago: ‘We Could Be Looking at a Blood Bath’

During Memorial Day weekend, this city reopens its Lake Michigan beaches, regular fireworks displays start at Navy Pier and the downtown streets and spruced-up Riverwalk are crowded with tourists.

But the holiday weekend is often seen here as the start of heightened violence, as well. That has been particularly worrying this year to community leaders and city officials, as they grapple with a rise in gun violence that has traumatized some neighborhoods and left city officials searching for new ways to subdue street crime.

“If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath,” said the Rev. Corey Brooks, a pastor on the city’s South Side, a mostly African-American area where some of the shootings have been concentrated. “If something doesn’t happen, I fear that we’re potentially looking at one of the worst summers we’ve ever had.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though, from a standpoint of concretely and effectively addressing this issue, Rom Emanuel has been a colossal, epic fail as mayor of this city.

The alleged "educational" system in the city has utterly failed these kids; so have the drug and gang policies, at the state, city, and Federal levels.

Urban gangs give these kids the opportunity to make money, selling drugs, and give them a sense of identity which sometimes their (frequently broken) families can not.

I have to wonder; how well can these kids read and write a standard English?!? How are their math skills?!? And if they don't have proficiencies in reading and math, who is going to want to hire them, and for what kinds of jobs?

How many "shovel ready" jobs exist in Chicago which the construction unions will allow unskilled, non-union members take?!?

There is a hideous overlap of problems here, and I hope that the community can find effective coping strategies to keep the city calm this summer, but were I a betting woman, I would not bet on that happening.

Venezuela Drifts Into New Territory: Hunger, Blackouts and Government Shutdown

The courts? Closed most days. The bureau to start a business? Same thing. The public defender’s office? That’s been converted into a food bank for government employees.

Step by step, Venezuela has been shutting down.

This country has long been accustomed to painful shortages, even of basic foods. But Venezuela keeps drifting further into uncharted territory.

In recent weeks, the government has taken what may be one of the most desperate measures ever by a country to save electricity: A shutdown of many of its offices for all but two half-days each week.

But that is only the start of the country’s woes. Electricity and water are being rationed, and huge areas of the country have spent months with little of either.

Many people cannot make international calls from their phones because of a dispute between the government and phone companies over currency regulations and rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot see how this can ultimately end well, or that Maduro will be able to remain in power that much longer.

But I do hope that the government which replaces that of Maduro will be able to meet the needs of the suffering Venezuelan people, and as quickly as humanly possible.

ANALYSISThe Zombie Voter Apocalypse: California Refuses to Admit Its Voter Fraud Problem

Hollywood has always loved making films about the walking dead, but in Southern California it appears they have a real life problem with “zombie” voters.

An investigation by CBSLA2 and KCAL9 found that hundreds of deceased persons are still on voter registration rolls in the area, and that many of these names have been voting for years in Los Angeles.

Julita Abutin, died in 2006 but voted in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014.

For example, John Cenkner died in 2003, according to Social Security Administration records, yet he voted in the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2010 elections. His daughter told the station that she was “astounded” and couldn’t “understand how anybody” could get away with this.

The investigation revealed that 265 deceased persons voted in Southern California, 215 of them in Los Angeles County. Thirty-two were repeat voters, with eight posthumously-cast ballots each. One woman who died in 1988 has been voting for 26 years, including in the 2014 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

California's problem is hardly unique to the American voting process.

If you want to see something that will truly amaze you, find the video presentation "Hacking Democracy",about Bev Harris' journey through the electronic electoral process; this is an absolute eye-opener on how easy it is to hack American voting machines. She is the webmaster of blackboxvoting.org, and a site you need to share with all your friends.

Silencing the United States as It Prepares for War

The breathtaking record of perfidy is so mutated in the public mind, wrote the late Harold Pinter, that it “never happened …Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. It didn’t matter … “. Pinter expressed a mock admiration for what he called “a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.”

Take Obama. As he prepares to leave office, the fawning has begun all over again. He is “cool”. One of the more violent presidents, Obama gave full reign to the Pentagon war-making apparatus of his discredited predecessor. He prosecuted more whistleblowers – truth-tellers – than any president. He pronounced Chelsea Manning guilty before she was tried. Today, Obama runs an unprecedented worldwide campaign of terrorism and murder by drone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Mr. Pilger that what Donald Trump has been criticising, and quite reasonably, are the effects of illegal immigration on this country, in terms of the financial burden it places on the US.

But on that issue of alleged "choice" of candidates, he is absolutely correct. The Kabuki-like process of American elections gives the people of this country the "illusion" that they, through the process, are at least somewhat in control of the national dialogue; they are not, in any meaningful way, whatsoever.

It is the corporations, who fund the election processes, at state and national levels, who ultimately chose the candidates.

And those candidates are vetted, not on their ability to lift the American people up, or address their needs and concerns; they are vetted on how well they can keep those promises to those corporations which fund them, and that - my friend - is the bottom line here.

Criminal Hillary: State Department DESTROYS 6 Clinton Lies About Her Email Server

The State Department Investigator General released an 83 page report on Hillary Clinton’s email practices as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013 – and ripped her over and over again for corrupt practices and lies.

Here are six of those lies, debunked:

Gates Foundation 'doubling down' on Common Core

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation says it is "doubling down" on its efforts to help teachers adapt to the Common Core education standards.

"Far too many districts report that identifying or developing Common Core-aligned materials is a challenge, meaning that teachers spend their time adapting or creating curriculum, developing lessons, and searching for supplemental materials," Gates Foundation CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann writes in an open letter. "So, we're doubling down on our efforts to make sure teachers have what they need to make the most of their unique capabilities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

reported at breitbart.com, last year:

Parents of high-ability students are demanding their San Francisco school board restore their courses for high achievers, which have been set aside while schools in the district switched over to the Common Core standards. Changes to the curriculum have included pushing Algebra I out of middle school and into the high school freshman year, as well as eliminating honors classes in both middle school and ninth grade, reports SFGate. Additionally, the evaluation process used by the district to identify high achievers—GATE (Gifted and Talented Education Program)—has been suspended since that system relied on state standardized tests, which were also postponed during the switch to Common Core. “The angry parents, however, accused the district of dumbing down instruction and ignoring or holding back smart students to focus on the needs of those at the bottom end of the achievement gap,” says a news report about a meeting of parents with the school board. Academic standards experts—some of whom wrote the old, highly-acclaimed California standards—warned several years ago that Common Core would “dumb down” curricula in the name of social justice and closing the achievement gap between minority and white students.

That achievement gap addressed in the above article can be successfully addressed in many other ways.

But the cold, hard reality here is that when people do not learn critical thinking, or have the ability to analyze information, they will swallow, literally, anything the government has to say, and that is why the Bill & Melinda Gates are "doubling down" on shoving this program down kids', and their parents' throats.

A passive, medically doped up American population will not issue even a murmur of dissent, no matter how economically and soul-crippling those decisions coming out of DC may be which affect them, and that is the ultimate goal of Common Core; the creation of a populace unable to think, and totally accepting of every governmental edict, no matter how evil or morally wrong.

Secret Text in Senate Bill Would Give FBI Warrantless Access to Email Records

A PROVISION SNUCK INTO the still-secret text of the Senate’s annual intelligence authorization would give the FBI the ability to demand individuals’ email data and possibly web-surfing history from their service providers without a warrant and in complete secrecy.

If passed, the change would expand the reach of the FBI’s already highly controversial national security letters. The FBI is currently allowed to get certain types of information with NSLs — most commonly, information about the name, address, and call data associated with a phone number or details about a bank account.

Since a 2008 Justice Department legal opinion, the FBI has not been allowed to use NSLs to demand “electronic communication transactional records,” such as email subject lines and other metadata, or URLs visited.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent people already know NOT to say anything in their emails or Facebook posts, that is not the most vanilla information possible to share.

And they know that their "on line behaviour" is already tracked by the Federal government.

In my case, under the First Amendment to the Constitution, I read a lot of the foreign press in English, because it is there that one can generally discern most clearly, what the US government is up to. And to date, my reading cannot be construed as "illegal", under the First Amendment.

And the bad guys have already encrypted their electronics communications to the degree that they have become impenetrable to Federal agencies' attempts to break them.

So what is this about?!? Most likely, gleaning trade and proprietary information for their corporate buddies, to enhance their financial and professional "edge".

It does not have to do with real national security, in any way, shape, or manner. If it did, why would the text of this law need to remain secret?!?

First Deposition Testimony from Clinton Email Discovery Released

Judicial Watch today released the deposition transcript of Ambassador Lewis Lukens, former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the State Department’s executive secretariat. The transcript is available here. Amb. Lukens was deposed last week as part of the discovery granted to Judicial Watch by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in response to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured, non-government email system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).

Lukens is the first of seven depositions of former Clinton top aides and State Department officials that Judicial Watch has scheduled over the next four weeks. Also to be deposed are Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, as well as top State Department official Patrick Kennedy, and former State IT employee Bryan Pagliano.

Feds fight to prevent Clinton deposition in email case

The Obama administration is trying to prevent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from being deposed in an ongoing open records case connected to her use of a private email server.

Late Thursday evening, the Justice Department filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.

SECURITY RESEARCHER DISCOVERS GLARING PROBLEM WITH PATIENT DATA SYSTEM, FBI STAGES ARMED DAWN RAID

Justin Shafer was roused from his bed this week by thunderous knocking at his North Richland Hills, Texas home, and when he opened the door, found himself staring down the barrel of a 'big green' assault weapon, wielded by one of the 12-15 armed FBI agents on his lawn. Shafer, a dental computer integrator and security researcher, had previously helped Databreaches.net to document failings in Henryshein Dental's widely used Dentrix software, which had been exposing sensitive patient data, despite the company's claims that they encrypted this data (they didn't).

State Dept IG Finds Hillary Clinton Violated Government Records Act and Refused to Speak to Investigators

Politico reports that the State Department inspector general has concluded that Hillary Clinton violated State’s record keeping protocols. The finding is contained in a much anticipated report provided to Congress today.

Significantly, the report also reveals that Clinton and her top aides at State — Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, Huma Abedin, and possibly others — refused to cooperate with the IG’s investigation despite the IG’s requests that they submit to interviews.

The report is devastating, although it transparently strains to soften the blow. For example, it concludes that State’s “longstanding systemic weaknesses” in record keeping “go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State.” Yet, it cannot avoid finding that Clinton’s misconduct is singular in that she, unlike her predecessors, systematically used private e-mail for the purpose of evading record keeping requirements.

Vaccine Thimerosal Preservative Causes Autism. CDC Forced to Release Proof They Knew…

Over 100 Freedom of Records Act (FOIA) requests have finally forced the euphemist US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to admit a widely used vaccine preservative is the equivalent of a neurological armageddon.

With help from PhD Scientist and Biochemist, Brian Hooker, the agency has finally had to reveal that they have known for years that thimerosal, which was banned in 1999, but still used in over 60 vaccines, causes autism. Robert F. Kennedy has been trying to alert the public of the same troublesome findings that Hooker has unveiled, but he is often dismissed, or worse, made into a media fool by the pharmaceutical industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There should be a class action law suit brought forward by the parents of every kid who got vaccines with thimerosal, and ultimately became autistic,against the CDC and the pharmaceutical companies which included Thimerosal in their vaccines, and sue them out of existence, for the damage they have caused.

Liar, liar! Clinton KNEW email was hacked

The State Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) delivered a sharp rebuke to Hillary Clinton yesterday, in a report that heavily criticized her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

But the report included more than evidence of Clinton’s bad judgment.

It proved she has been lying about her emails for months.

Despite repeated denials from Clinton that her emails were compromised, the OIG report concluded that she likely knew her server was hacked — and went to lengths to keep from reporting it.

Already, Clinton faces questions about her trustworthiness, with months of polling showing voters give her low marks for integrity.

Erdogan Unleashes More Threats on Europe as EU-Turkey Deal Falters

An historic deal between the European Union and Turkey detailing the administration of Syrian refugees continues to unravel amid concerns by Brussels regarding Ankara’s quickly deteriorating record on human rights.

Recently, European leaders nearly unanimously signaled an unwillingness to approve visa-free travel for Turkish residents within the Schengen zone, citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s persecution of domestic opposition and dissent. Europe’s decision to retreat from offering Turkey visa-free travel, a critical component of the EU-Turkey refugee negotiations, tipped Erdogan into a fit of rage on Tuesday.
Speaking at a World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Erdogan threatened to unleash a flood of refugees

Speaking at a World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Erdogan threatened to unleash a flood of refugees into Europe if the EU failed to approve his visa-free travel demands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A world Humanitarian summit being held in ...Istanbul, the capital of a country practicing serial genocide against Turkish Kurds; somehow, you have to appreciate the irony here!

But Erdogan appears to be falling apart, mentally and politically.

I think the next step in Turkey will be very dependent on what the Turkish army believes it needs to do to restore order in the country.

Judge Seals All Video Depositions In Clinton Email Case

A U.S. judge on Thursday ordered that all videotaped depositions in a lawsuit over Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s private email server remain sealed, The Hill newspaper reported.

In a brief order on Thursday evening, Judge Emmet Sullivan granted the request of lawyers for Clinton’s ex-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, who had worried that video clips of her interview could be used for political purposes, according to The Hill.

And Sullivan went further, ordering all videotaped depositions to remain sealed until he ordered otherwise, the newspaper said

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (complete) absence of surprise here!!

I have to wonder just what kind of "pressure" was applied in order to get this ruling.

And I certainly hope this judge doesn't get "depressed" (enough to pull an alleged suicide), because if he is unable to order these depositions opened, who else can order them open, and when?!?

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued and made famous).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The online shills are on overtime this weekend trying to stuff this can of worms back into the can. But they cannot refute the facts, so all they can do is shout insults and claim that anyone questioning the official story is causing pain to the Foster family.

BULL BISCUITS!

The people who murdered Vincent Foster and covered it up are causing all the pain!

Once again, here are the facts that cast doubt on the claim of suicide.

MPs warn voters being 'conned' as Brussels keeps plans for EU army secret until after referendum

British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.

Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.

Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army.

The backlash came as it emerged plans to move towards the creation of a European army are being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is so horrific about this plan for a unified, European Army that Brits are not supposed to know about it until the day AFTER the referendum next month?!?

IF I were a Brit, I would want to know, and right the heck now, what Brussels had in store for this Army, and what the British commitment to it would be.

Hillary has a NEW excuse on why she used her own private email server

Hillary told Chuck Todd today that she used her own personal email (she keeps saying ‘personal email’ because she’s spinning. It’s not just personal email, it’s her own private personal emails server! And no Secretary of State did that!) because of technical problems with her State.gov email or something. Yeah, that’s the new excuse.

SPECIAL OPERATIONS TROOPS ASSAULTED DOWNTOWN TAMPA … ALL TO THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE

On Wednesday, Special Operations troops from more than a dozen countries jumped out of helicopters, rappelled from buildings and expended hundreds of rounds of ammunition as they attempted to rescue the mayor of this Florida city.

The operation was, of course, an exercise, but it was also a public spectacle for a force that has tried desperately to remain in the shadows despite now being at the forefront of America’s wars.

Aside from U.S. Special Operations forces, including Navy SEALs, Marine Raiders and Army Green Berets, countries such as Ireland and Jordan also participated in the exercise. Many of the participants covered their faces, and only a select few were allowed to speak to the media afterward.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War - as the Prussian General Von Clauswitz used to say - is diplomacy carried on by other means.

And unfortunately, US foreign policy has been murderously transformed in the 21st century to an era of regime change, and the illegal and immoral acquisition of foreign resources to which the US, and US and multinational corporations, have absolutely no moral right.

We are no longer a nation of laws, but decrees and Executive Orders, courtesy of the alleged "Divine Right" of the President, who can order extrajudicial assassinations just as easily as one might order a piece of pie at a restaurant. And decades ago, H. Rap Brown made the observation that "Violence is as American as cherry pie." Unfortunately, when it comes to US governmental misappropriation of military power, he was absolutely correct.

There has to be a peaceful reckoning here, and a collective moral, and spiritual awakening of the American people; how dare this government be doing such things while our Vets sleep homeless in our streets; our infrastructure crumbles, and jobs keep leaving this country?!?!?

Sadly, We the People are no longer represented at all by our alleged State and Federal Representatives; this is a government of the corporations; for the corporations, and by the corporations. Except for giving the appearance of participating in a democratic republic, by that Kabuki-like process of "voting" ( for two individuals who have been vetted by the major corporations who have been assured that they will get everything they want from those candidates, ), We the People have become irrelevant.

In looking at the two presumptive Presidential candidates, I am frankly looking the person who seems least likely to start World War III, and that person is Donald Trump.

Clinton has already threatened to start a war with Iran. As reported at glolbalresearch.ca on the 15th of this month:

Note: This piece which is of extreme relevance to the US election campaign was originally published in July 2015. On July 3, 2015, presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an “existential threat to Israel… I hope we are able to get a deal next week that puts a lid on (its) nuclear weapons program.” Even if we do get such a deal, we will still have major problems from Iran. They are the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism. They use proxies like Hezbollah to sow discord and create insurgencies to destabilize governments. They are taking more and more control of a number of nations in the region and they pose an existential threat to Israel. We…have to turn our attention to working with our partners to try to reign in and prevent this continuing Iranian aggressiveness. Fact: US and Israeli intelligence both say Iran’s nuclear program has no military component. No evidence whatever suggests Tehran wants one. Plenty indicates otherwise. As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying: The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security. (O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense. I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror. No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents. Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.” “I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.” She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”

Iranian leadership is many things, but stupid is not one of them; Iran will not attack Israel because they know that if they do this, the country will be reduced to a puddle of green glass by US/Israeli counter attacks.

But in this equation, there is a 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bosedorfer baby grand piano, which Clinton is avoiding talking about like the plague, and that is Russia.

And unfortunately, when Clinton spews this kind of hubristic rhetoric, none of the alleged correspondents covering her speeches ever has the gonadal tissue to ask her, "If Iran is attacked, what will Russia do?!?"

And please do not believe, for one second, that Russia's leadership, from Putin, or his successor will be on down, will just hold hands and sing "Kumbyah" if such a thing should happen as a US war against Iran.

Russian political and military leaders have been very clear, and very public, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid, militarily. And right now, the US military doesn't have the money, the troop strength, the weaponry,or the manufacturing to ensure a positive outcome to a war against Russia.

The fact that Secretary Clinton would make this threat against Iran without really knowing what the facts are on the ground, in order to get "better into bed" with Israeli Prime Minister's ultra-rightist regime, scares the stuffing out of me. There is a willful recklessness in her nature, as demonstrated by the email scandal, which makes her unworthy to be the President of this country.

Hitler Was Financed by the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England (translated from Russian article)

The key structures that defined the post-war development strategy of the West were the Central financial institutions of Great Britain and the United States — the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve System (FRS) — and the associated financial and industrial organizations set out a target to establish absolute control over the financial system of Germany to control political processes in Central Europe.

ALAN GREENSPAN: VENEZUELA DECLARES MARTIAL LAW, AMERICA IS NEXT

Alan Greenspan issued a dire warning about the U.S. economy during an interview with Fox News on Thursday. Greenspan said that as Venezuela descends into martial law, the U.S. is heading in the same direction.

Greenspan warned that the U.S. has “a global problem of a shortage of productivity growth” which is leading it into an impending disaster.

Foxbusiness.com reports:

“What the Fed does at this particular stage is less important than what the markets are doing. And what the markets are beginning to show us is acceleration in money supply for the first time in a very long time… We have a global problem of a shortage in productivity growth and it’s not only the United States but it’s pretty much around the world and it’s being caused by the fact that the populations everywhere in the Western world, for example, are aging and we are not committing enough of our resources to fund that,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Long term economic growth cannot happen if decent jobs keep getting off-shored/outsourced; that is one aspect of the problem about which Greenspan is noticeably reluctant to speak.

If the guarantee of decent jobs after college doesn't pan out, women in long term relationships postpone, or avoid pregnancies completely; it is just that simple.

And I, for one, do not blame them; however, Greenspan seems to be waiving his finger at them, as though they were the problem, which they are not.

Rational people don't want to bring kids into this world unless they have some hope of adequately and decently taking care of them, because jobs are there with which to feed, clothe, and educate them.

JUDGE COMPARES DRUG WAR TO SLAVERY, BRAVELY REFUSES TO PUT CONVICTED DRUG FELON IN PRISON

It appears that America has awakened to the problem of mass incarceration–an issue underscored by the fact that the U.S. holds less than 5 percent of the world’s population but houses about 22 percent of the world’s prisoners. Congress is now making a token effort at criminal justice reform, including the reduction of mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent offenders, but even this faces opposition from the most fervent police state crusaders.

In the face of inaction, one New York judge is stepping outside the box to breathe life into a much-needed national debate. Judge Frederick Block of the Federal District Court chose not to send a woman to prison who was convicted of felony drug charges, instead sentencing her to probation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo for Judge Frederick Block having done the right thing here.

And believe me, I am the last person breathing who could ever be characterised as "soft on crime".

But the prison industrial complex in this country has grown completely out of control, particularly for people who are non-violent offenders.

As reported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics 22 April, 2014:

Examines the 5-year post-release offending patterns of persons released from state prisons in 2005 by offender characteristics, prior criminal history, and commitment offense. It provides estimates on the number and types of crimes former inmates commit both prior to their imprisonment and after release. The report includes different measures of recidivism, including a new arrest, court adjudication, conviction, and incarceration for either a new sentence or a technical violation. It also documents the extent to which the released prisoners committed crimes in states other than the one that released them. Data are from the Bureau of Justice Statistics' Recidivism Study of State Prisoners Released in 2005, which tracked a sample of former inmates from 30 states for five years following release in 2005. The findings are based on prisoner records obtained from the state departments of corrections through the National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) and criminal history records obtained through requests to the FBI's Interstate Identification Index (III) and state repositories via the International Justice and Public Safety Network (Nlets). Highlights: Among state prisoners released in 30 states in 2005— About two-thirds (67.8%) of released prisoners were arrested for a new crime within 3 years, and three-quarters (76.6%) were arrested within 5 years. Within 5 years of release, 82.1% of property offenders were arrested for a new crime, compared to 76.9% of drug offenders, 73.6% of public order offenders, and 71.3% of violent offenders. More than a third (36.8%) of all prisoners who were arrested within 5 years of release were arrested within the first 6 months after release, with more than half (56.7%) arrested by the end of the first year. Two in five (42.3%) released prisoners were either not arrested or arrested once in the 5 years after their release. A sixth (16.1%) of released prisoners were responsible for almost half (48.4%) of the nearly 1.2 million arrests that occurred in the 5-year follow-up period.

Let those numbers sink in for a while.

This means that the American prison industrial complex is one, complete epic fail. And it is recidivism which keeps the money flowing for programs which, looking at those numbers, absolutely are not working.

The country of Sweden is emptying its prisons, and why?!?

Because their total approach is rehabilitation of the criminal, so when they get out, they do not re-offend, or at least not anywhere near the rate at which US criminals do.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

EVERYTHING!!

VIDEO: COP SNAPS, ALMOST HITS PEDESTRIAN IN CROSSWALK, THEN ATTACKS HIM IN A FIT OF ROAD RAGE

An infuriating video was uploaded to Facebook this week showing an off-duty Boston cop tackling a small older man in a fit of road rage. According to multiple witnesses, the cop nearly hit the older gentlemen as he drove through a crosswalk.

After almost being run over by the incompetent cop, the older man, who was on foot, simply tapped the cop’s window with his umbrella to alert him to the fact that he nearly hit him. This tapping on the window set the cop off into a fit of rage, leading to him chasing down, tackling, and assaulting the innocent man.

When the older gentleman saw the raging lunatic jump out of his vehicle and chase him, he naturally ran. This set the cop off even more, and when he finally caught up to the man, he tackled him, shoved his face into the pavement, and put his knee in his back.

The video, taken by a vigilant citizen, Stephen Harlowe, starts as the cop is ramming the man’s head into the sidewalk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do NOT got to Boston, right now, for any reason.

That older gentleman could have been any of us.

IF you have been looking to vacation in Boston, or hold a symposium there, do not do it; being in Boston can obviously be very hazardous to one's health these days.

Send a letter to Boston's Mayer, Martin J. Walsh, including the site for the video, as the reason why you will no longer consider his city a safe place, either to convention, or vacation.

Because only when cities are financially crucified enough to really feel the economic pain of a boycott will behaviour like this begin to change, on the part of city cops.

All of Hillary Clinton’s Lies Are Premeditated

Her style of deception is more insidious than Trump’s.
Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com

The State Department’s inspector general released a report this week concluding that Hillary Clinton is a breathtakingly brazen and consistent liar.

No, that’s not a direct quote. Bureaucrats don’t talk that way under the best of circumstances — and this IG, Steve Linick, is an Obama appointee whose report is about the apparent Democratic nominee for president.

So it’s all the more shocking, then, that the report confirms nearly everything Clinton’s critics have been saying. By setting up a secret e-mail server in her home in Chappaqua, N.Y., without proper authorization from any legal or security official, Clinton displayed a cavalier disregard for national security and an outrageous desire to hide her doings from Freedom of Information Act requests, government archivists, Congress, the press, and, ultimately, the American people.

FLASHBACK - EX-DOJ OFFICIAL: OBAMA SIGNALING FBI TO BACK OFF HILLARY

President Obama tried to downplay the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for handling some of the government’s most sensitive information, but a former top Justice Department official says Obama’s comments ignore the law and are an obvious attempt to convince the FBI not to recommend charges against Clinton.

On Fox News Sunday, anchor Chris Wallace asked Obama if he was convinced that national security was not compromised by Clinton’s handling of sensitive information.

“Here’s what I know: Hillary Clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy,” Obama said.

Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Victoria Toensing is appalled by that explanation.

“Doesn’t this former constitutional law professor know the law?” she asked.

Oregon babysitter accused of beating toddler avoids charges

The idiot who did this confessed but in Oregon he can't be prosecuted because the baby can't talk yet. This SUCKS!

A babysitter accused of bruising a battered baby won’t face any charges — because the infant can’t speak up.

Even though Joshua Marbury’s 1-year-old son was covered in bruises and scars from the babysitter’s alleged beating, the accused abuser is protected by a 2012 Oregon Court of Appeals ruling that discourages prosecutors from filing charges since the tyke can’t talk.

Marbury was furious as the charges were dropped, after baby Jacob had suffered a severe smack that left a black eye, bruises and a stinging palm print on the child’s face.

Hillary Clinton's shrinking email defense

While an FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server continues, the State Department's Office of Inspector General has raised the stakes with the release of a remarkable report finding that Clinton's actions violated State Department policies and were inconsistent with federal record-keeping laws.

The report also discloses new details relevant to Clinton's motives and her assertion that the use of a private server was simply a matter of convenience. While criminal charges still remain highly unlikely, the inspector general's report is significant and unquestionably damaging to Clinton's public defense.

The Mexico Way

Clearly, Trump is accusing the Mexican ruling class—the politicians and billionaires like Carlos Slim, the largest single shareholder of The New York Times—of dumping their surplus population on the United States.

That Mexico’s elites are outmaneuvering America’s leaders strikes Trump as a bad thing. Yet, to the American media, the very existence of a Mexican ruling caste with interests different from those of American citizens doesn’t seem to register as a concept with which they are able to deal. Sure, Mexico is a country of over 120 million people that shares a 1,950-mile border with the U.S., but it’s not, you know, Israel when it comes to being important to American interests.

Bankers above the law! Christine Lagarde not charged in embezzlement investigation

But she has not been completely cleared in the investigation over her authorisation of a controversial out-of-court settlement for the maverick French businessman Bernard Tapie when she was finance minister under Nicolas Sarkozy.

Instead, Lagarde has been placed under the status of "supervised witness". In French legal terms, this is less serious than being placed under formal investigation. It means that in any future hearings she will have to answer questions as a witness with her lawyer. She could technically still be charged later if judges change their minds.

A federal judge has forced the release of more than 20,000 pages of emails and memos previously locked up under President Obama’s phony executive-privilege claim. A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation.

French nuclear workers vote to join strike against labour laws

Staff at France’s 19 nuclear plants have voted to go on strike on Thursday amid escalating protests against labour reforms.

Workers at the Nogent-sur-Seine plant near Paris have already started a 24-hour stoppage.

The action is not thought likely to provoke power cuts, due to legal limits on strike action in the nuclear industry and power imports from abroad.

The latest action comes as the CGT union hardens its opposition to new labour laws.

“It is no longer enough for us go out on the streets, they don’t listen to us anymore. Now we will start with heavier arms, a little more substantial, and we all fight and tell the government that this is enough,” said CGT official Jean-Claude Colin.

Judicial Watch announced today released Justice Department documents showing that weapons sent from the U.S. into Mexico as part of the Obama administration’s Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning program have been widely used by major Mexican drug cartels. According to the new records, over the past three years, a total of 94 Fast and Furious firearms have been recovered in Mexico City and 12 Mexican states, with the majority being seized in Sonora, Chihuahua and Sinaloa. Of the weapons recovered, 82 were rifles and 12 were pistols identified as having been part of the Fast and Furious program.

Though the Department of Justice had alleged Countrywide Financial Corp., which was purchased by Bank of America in 2008, had sold Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac thousands of bad loans through its “Hustle” mortgage program, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York found insufficient evidence to back charges of fraud.

Hillary Clinton to California: “Drop Dead”

By now, anyone paying the least attention knows that the dishonest Democratic establishment and dishonest mainstream media have created a false narrative of bad behavior by Bernie Sanders supporters at the Nevada State Democratic State Convention on May 14. The evidence-free claims about “thrown chairs” (none) and “death threats” (tasteless insults) have been widely rebutted, but they have served their purpose all the same: taking attention away from the arrogant, autocratic management of the Nevada convention by establishment Democrats working on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

It’s a measure of Democratic Party panic that party leaders feel the need to run a despotic convention, autocratically ramming their preferred results through when there were only two national delegates at stake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a very real possibility that Judicial Watch may come up with enough bombshell information, created through a public lawsuit or indictment, which could damage Clinton enough, before the elections, that she would have to resign from the campaign.

That is why Sanders is smart to stay the course; because IF Clinton has to retire before the convention. at that point, Biden may make a grab for the nomination, bringing Sanders in as a Vice-Presidential candidate.

But I would very much suspect one thing from the Obama White House; if their internal polling suggests, even mildly, that Trump might win, the Obama Administration is going to put this country into one, or several horrific wars before Trump is sworn into office, to insure that his first hundred days, and beyond, if possible,will be absolute hell.

He was referring partly to his expected successor: Avigdor Lieberman, leader of the far-right Yisrael Beiteinu party, whose trademark outbursts have included demands to bomb Egypt and behead disloyal Palestinian citizens.

But Mr Yaalon was also condemning extremism closer to home, in Mr Netanyahu’s Likud Party. Mr Yaalon is to take a break from politics. With fitting irony, his slot is to be filled on Likud’s backbenches by Yehuda Glick, a settler whose goal to destroy Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa mosque and replace it with a Jewish temple has the potential to set the Middle East on fire.

Israeli commentators pointed out that, with Mr Lieberman’s inclusion, the government will be the most extreme in Israel’s history – again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This move to the right in Israeli politics should concern anyone who believes that a reasonable peace, negotiated in good faith, between the Palestinians and Israelis, is the only way to avoid more brutal conflict in the region.

The possibilities for peace and social justice for Palestinians are not looking terribly bright right now.

Forbidden Alliance: US Won't Let Russia, Turkey, Iran Unite Against Daesh

Washington is trying to deter any possible alliance between Russia, Turkey and Iran on Syria: if the three countries unite their efforts against the terrorists, the jihadists will easily be defeated and the US will thereby lose its ability to destabilize the region, Iranian political analyst and former journalist Hassan Hanizadeh told Sputnik.

The US is thwarting any possible alliance between Russia, Turkey and Iran to fight the terrorist groups in Syria, Hassan Hanizadeh, former editor-in-chief of the Iranian news agency MehrNews told Sputnik.

Meanwhile, Washington is using the terrorist groups operating on the ground in Syria as a tool to divide the countries of the region. Thus, the political editor added, the US is interested in keeping relations between Turkey and Russia strained and in stirring tensions between Iran and Turkey.

Washington, he explained, is interested in extending its sphere of influence in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And as the rotted corpses keep piling up in Syria, courtesy of US-government trained and funded jihadists, the US government doesn't give a rat's derriere about the carnage, as long as it believes it is on a path to oust Al-Assad.

Dare I say, in their minds, "the end justifies the means", even of the means results in thousands of innocent civilians, including women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, dead?!?

Sure as heck looks like it, from where I sit.

In the 21st century, the US government has become the most horrific "judge, jury, and executioner" toward the rest of the world humanly possible.

What's wrong with this picture?!?

A Harvard MBA Guy Is Out to Bring Down the Clintons

In a 9-page letter dated yesterday and posted to his blog, Ortel calls the Clintons’ charity the “largest unprosecuted charity fraud ever attempted,” adding for good measure that the Clinton Foundation is part of an “international charity fraud network whose entire cumulative scale (counting inflows and outflows) approaches and may even exceed $100 billion, measured from 1997 forward.” Ortel lists 40 potential areas of fraud or wrongdoing that he plans to expose over the coming days.

Like Markopolos, Ortel has an impressive resume. Ortel’s LinkedIn profile shows that he received his B.A. from Yale and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He previously worked as a Managing Director at investment bank Dillon Read and later as a Managing Director at the financial research firm, Newport Value Partners. In more recent years, Ortel has been a contributor to a number of news outlets including the Washington Times and TheStreet.com.

Caught by the fuzz: Spain’s ‘muzzle law’ sees woman fined over ‘All Cats Are Beautiful’ bag (PHOTOS)

A woman in Madrid has been slapped with an on-the-spot fine for sporting a bag which declared ‘All Cats Are Beautiful.’.

Belén Lobeto claims that Spanish cops policing the Copa del Rey soccer final between Barcelona and Sevilla rounded on her for carrying a bag emblazoned ‘All Cats Are Beautiful,’ along with an acronym ‘A.C.A.B’.

For denizens of the punk scene and anarchists, A.C.A.B is an anti-police graffiti tag and tattoo believed to have originated in the UK during the 1970s.

We need to know the algorithms the government uses to make important decisions about us

In criminal justice systems, credit markets, employment arenas, higher education admissions processes and even social media networks, data-driven algorithms now drive decision-making in ways that touch our economic, social and civic lives. These software systems rank, classify, associate or filter information, using human-crafted or data-induced rules that allow for consistent treatment across large populations.

But while there may be efficiency gains from these techniques, they can also harbor biases against disadvantaged groups or reinforce structural discrimination. In terms of criminal justice, for example, is it fair to make judgments on an individual’s parole based on statistical tendencies measured across a wide group of people? Could discrimination arise from applying a statistical model developed for one state’s population to another, demographically different population?

HERE’S THE FULL LIST OF COMPANIES & ORGANIZATIONS THAT PAID HILLARY CLINTON FROM 2013-2015

In its article titled, How Corporate America Bought Hillary Clinton for $21M, The New York Post details the companies and organizations that paid Hillary in speaking fees from 2013-2015.

The total comes to $21.7 million, which is a remarkable sum for one of the least charismatic and unimaginative orators the world has ever known.

It’s enough to make you sick.

Webmaster's Commentary:

You can fully, and rightly, expect that these relationships will steer both her domestic and international policies toward war, repression, more economic disparity, more offshoring/outsourcing of jobs, and more abysmal misery for the working class in this country.

World’s 16 biggest banks, including RBC, ordered to face Libor lawsuits in ruling court warns could ruin them

Sixteen of the world’s largest banks including JP Morgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. must face antitrust lawsuits accusing them of hurting investors who bought securities tied to Libor by rigging an interest-rate benchmark, a ruling that an appeals court warned could devastate them.

The appellate judges reversed a lower-court ruling on one issue — whether the investors had adequately claimed in their complaints to have been harmed — while sending the cases back for the judge to consider another issue: whether the plaintiffs are the proper parties to sue, in part because their claims, if successful, provide for triple damages that could overwhelm the banks.

"PRE-CRIME" ARRIVES IN CHICAGO - BIG DATA TELLS COPS WHO'S NEXT TO BE SHOT

In Chicago, where homicides are out of control and estimated to top 550 in 2016 (the most since 2012), police are so desperate to correct the problem that they are throwing good old fashioned police work to the wind, and turning to 'Minority Report'-esque algorithms to do the work for them.

Authorities assume that by narrowing down the key players that are most likely to be involved in violence will allow them to stop it. Of course, civil liberties being irrelevant in today's world, the program is in use already. Police superintendent Eddie Johnson says that there is a small segment of people driving the violence, and although homicides are on the rise after three years of the program, the "Strategic Subject List" generated by the fourth revision of the algorithm is the answer to stopping them. Supporters of the program point to statistics such as 117 of the 140 people arrested in a drug and gang raid last week being on the list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Grinding poverty, coupled with the offshoring/outsourcing of meaningful, well-paying jobs, are two of the biggest culprits in spawning violence in our inner cities, because in American society, if it is done intelligently and brutally enough, crime does pay.

The people living in America's inner cities understand this, because they see politicians at the highest level of American government (literally) get away with murder, when it suits their political agenda, and can do it with absolute impunity.

While the "special interest list" may help a little, it does nothing to actually address the root causes of such violence at all, because the answers here are economic, and they cannot be resolved by more repressive policing, or more algorithms.

Rahm Emanuel's tenure as mayor of this city has been an absolute, epic fail at every level, and the explosion of crime under his watch has been no exception.

Yet I have to wonder, just for speculation, and to "cement" her relationship to Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu at an even deeper level, if Hillary Clinton might be contemplating a Vice Presidential nomination for Mayor Emmanuel at the Democratic Convention, to utterly insure all the political clout of AIPAC is behind her, and her alone.

After all, he was senior adviser for policy and strategy in the Clinton Presidency.

Stranger things have happened in American politics, and right now, given the reality that Trump is pulling ahead of Clinton in the national polls, I would not bet against such a move.

U.S. GOVERNMENT SECRETLY DESTROYED EVIDENCE IN TRIAL OF ACCUSED “9/11 MASTERMINDS”

In another setback for the death penalty trial of the five men accused of aiding the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, two defense lawyers for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed say the U.S. government secretly destroyed relevant evidence.

On May 11, defense lawyers for the accused mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks asked for judge Col. James Pohl and the prosecution team to be recused from the trial, and for the case to be shut down. Defense lawyers David Nevin and Maj. Derek Poteet say that the U.S. government destroyed evidence related to the case, according to the New York Times. The two men are unable to provide further details because the issue is classified, but Mr. Nevin said the evidence was “favorable” to the defendants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very clear to me that the evidence which was destroyed may well have exonerated Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and that was precisely why it was destroyed by the US government.

TSA head of security 'removed from his position'

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration asked its head of security to turn in his badge and bright blue gloves. Kelly Hoggan has been 'removed from his post.'
An internal TSA memo distributed today and leaked to Reuters says the decision to remove and replace Kelly Hoggan came after the most recent round of complaints over impossibly long lines at TSA airport security checkpoints. The memo came from agency head Peter Neffenger.

The change was announced Monday night by the House Oversight Committee's official Twitter account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, that's a decent start; but in light of the fact that the TSA has proven itself pathologically incapable of catching any bad guys, or finding the practice bombs in luggage, why don't we disband this abysmally dysfunctional agency completely, and replace it with something far smarter, and far more respectful of passengers in the first place?!?

Clinton Foundation Got $100M From ‘Blood Minerals’ Firm

A little known Swedish-Canadian oil and mining conglomerate human rights groups have repeatedly charged produces “blood minerals” is among the Clinton Foundation’s biggest donors, thanks to a $100 million pledge in 2007, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has found.

“Blood minerals” are related to “blood diamonds,” which are allegedly mined in war zones or sold as commodities to help finance political insurgencies or despotic warlords.

When the Vancouver, Canada-based Lundin Group gave its $100 million commitment to the “Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative,” the company had long been cutting deals with warlords, Marxist rebels, military strongmen and dictatorships in the war-torn African countries of Congo, Sudan and Ethiopia.

California high school forces children to watch vaccine propaganda film and give 'correct' answers or be penalized

At Redondo Beach Union High School in Redondo Beach, California, tenth graders are forced to watch a vaccine propaganda film, then provide the "correct" answers in a graded test. Click here to see the vaccine propaganda test that tenth graders must take. (PDF)

The test given to high school students is rife with factual errors and gross omissions, such as claiming that polio infection rates "dropped by 99% when vaccine was introduced in 1955." Children are not taught that polio vaccines cause paralysis and that the official rates of polio dropped largely because government officials altered the definition of "polio" to create the illusion that the vaccines were working better than they actually were.

CITY OUTRAGED AFTER WATCHING COPS KILL A MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR ON VIDEO AND ESCAPE CHARGES

A community is “angry” over an attorney general’s decision refusing to prosecute the officers involved in the killing of a man in a wheelchair last year. The victim, 28-year-old Jeremy McDole was killed last September while sitting in his wheelchair on the city’s west side. Some black community leaders and residents were outraged by the outcome of the eight-month investigation led by the Delaware Department of Justice, which took the unusual step of singling out Senior Cpl. Joseph Dellose for “extraordinarily poor police work” during the incident. Dellose fired at McDole with a shotgun approximately two seconds after initially ordering him to put his hands up, the report found, creating uncertainty among other officers who, not knowing where the gunfire came from, also turned their weapons on McDole, reports Delaware Online.

What originally prompted her does not matter. As your Secretary of State and your subordinate, she willfully violated laws designed to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure.

SEC CONFERENCE FEATURES FORMER OFFICIAL CALLING FOR FRAUDSTERS TO BE PROTECTED FROM CAREER HARM

The SEC showed its true colors yet again at a panel at Stanford Law School at the end of March, although not as dramatically as last year. In last spring’s SEC panel at Stanford, the then head of examinations, Andrew Bowden, made such fawning remarks about private equity, including repeatedly saying he’d really like his son to work in the industry, that he resigned three weeks after we publicized the segment. Nevertheless, this conference was another demonstration of depth of regulatory capture at the agency.

As before, the real action came in when the audience members asked questions. They were all fielded by Andrew Ceresney, a former Debevoise & Plympton partner, now head of enforcement. We’re going to look at two questions in succession.

MAD ABOUT RIGGED ELECTIONS? MAINSTREAM MEDIA SAYS "YOU" ARE THE PROBLEM

It would be nice if Eichenwald’s hit piece were as much a joke as it comes across, but clearly he’s missed the point — and the vast movement supporting not only Sanders, but electoral justice. Worse, he didn’t stop there:

“Signs are emerging that the Sanders campaign is transmogrifying into the type of movement through which tyrants are born.

“The ugly was on display” at the aforementioned Nevada convention, Eichenwald adds, “where Hillary Clinton won more delegates than Sanders.”

No kidding. That would be precisely the issue that “cult” expressed fury about — Clinton managed to put yet another state under her belt under highly questionable circumstances. In fact, suspect happenings at nearly every primary and caucus so far oddly favor the former secretary of state — and Nevada stood as further testament to why voters are practically up in arms over what appears to be electoral favoritism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clinton is obsessed with obtaining the power of the oval office, and by any means necessary; she, and the people around her, who understand the perks of power, are hell-bent to obtain it, and by any means necessary.

She and her supporters have the morals of a dead tree-stump, and have had their consciences collectively, and thoroughly, removed.

It is pretty easy to predict the ultimate outcomes of a Clinton presidency; more wars; the return of the draft; more income inequality (as she is owned, body and soul, by Wall Street and the military industrial and pharmaceutical industries); more job offshoring and outsourcing, leaving more Americans without meaningful jobs; and a complete collapse of the American economic system.

And don't get me wrong here; I would LOVE to see a woman as President; just, please, Lord, not THIS woman!!

THE ILLUMINATI WERE AMATEURS — THE FACTS SHOWS THESE FIVE FAMILIES RULE THE WORLD

As you begin to understand world governments don’t have your best interests in mind — that enemies of the State could more aptly be called enemies of the globe’s corporate and banking elite — power comes sharply into focus. Those who actually hold the power control the world’s economies, and it’s clear the fates of over 7.4 billion souls now inhabiting the planet are, at best, the least of their concern.
Of those at the top of food chain, so to speak, a small collection of families dictates both domestic and foreign policy — mainly through fueling war and conflict for the good of the military and pharmaceutical industries, and to a greater extent, corporate and central banks.

Five families, in particular, have made a killing off killing — from the enormously lucrative business of debt it creates to the industries feeding off the plundering of world resources — and therefore control the world.

DHS/POLICE ARE TURNING PUBLIC CCTV CAMERAS INTO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS, PART 1

Thanks to Purdue University and Homeland Security, police can access public CCTV cameras anyywhere.

Purdue researchers have developed a prototype system called 'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments' (VACCINE) which allows law enforcement to tap into thousands of CCTV cameras. Which means police can now spy on you in parking garages, college campuses, national parks, highways etc.

Police use VACCINE to spy on millions of images daily

It’s easy for Wall Street to get their share of the crumbs being swept off the table because it’s managed to infiltrate and control every nook and cranny of Capitol Hill.

The United Nations Security Council wants a global “framework” for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to “counter” what its apparatchiks call “online propaganda,” “hateful ideologies,” and “digital terrorism.” To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN “Counter-Terrorism Committee” — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year.

Poland braced for EU Commission opinion amid row

The European Commission is on Monday expected to issue an opinion critical of the state of democracy and the rule of law in Poland under the country’s Law and Justice (PiS) government.

The commission, the executive body of the European Union, last week gave Poland until Monday to find a solution to an ongoing row and a deadlock over the country’s Constitutional Tribunal.

But since then tensions have escalated, with the PiS-dominated parliament voting through a resolution on Friday calling on the government to "defy all actions infringing" Poland’s sovereignty and pointing a blaming finger at Brussels.

A critical opinion by the European Commission would be a further step in a long process that could lead to the EU imposing penalties on Warsaw, theoretically including the suspension of its voting rights in the EU Council.

But Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said his country would veto any such move, which would have to be backed unanimously by EU member states.

Pentagon Had 'Too Much Money for Too Long'

More Funds? Pentagon's Main Problem is It Had 'Too Much Money for Too Long'
Leaders at the Pentagon have long campaigned for increased defense spending, citing imaginary threats from Russia and China as one of the key reasons, but the US military's main problem is that it has grown too accustomed to generous budgets, international relations and security analyst Mark Sleboda told Radio Sputnik.

"The US military is still facing large degrees of corruption. Their problem is probably that they've had too much money for too long and they are able to throw it around without thinking about how it's been spent," he said. "It would actually be better for them to experience a little bit of belt tightening in that regard. A little more self-control."

The House of Representatives approved its version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 last week. The Senate is expected to vote on the bill later this month. Senator John McCain is set to contest the $602 billion military spending bill, arguing an extra $17 billion is needed

Hillary Clinton Could Topple Obama's Record for Revving Gun Sales

If the Democratic front-runner wins the White House in 2016, the gun industry predicts sales records will fall.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has struggled with her party's liberal base during the primary season, as Senator Bernie Sanders and his supporters insist she's too cozy with Wall Street, resent her 2002 vote to invade Iraq, and criticize the overlap between her family foundation's donors and some of the corporations doing business in Washington.

But for conservatives, there are plenty of issues—including their own uncompromising stand to protect access to firearms—on which Clinton is viewed not just as an extension of incumbent President Barack Obama, but as even more liberal.

"President Obama has made clear his contempt for the Second Amendment," Chris Cox, head of the National Rifle Association's lobbying arm, told Bloomberg Politics. "Hillary Clinton would take that to the next level."

THE US WAR MACHINE’S ANNUAL BUDGET COULD BUY EVERY HOMELESS AMERICAN A $1 MILLION HOME

When looking at this spending in context, the U.S. not only spends more than the next six countries combined, but spends almost triple the amount on military expenses than the second biggest defense spender in the world, China, according to data from the Stockholm International Peach Research Institute.

These figures come on top of the recently announced $1 trillion dollar nuclear missile modernization program that has been curiously absent from public discourse, having not even been mentioned in the televised presidential debates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are very, very depressing, and show the real focus of the US government and military; wars, wars, and more wars to preserve the global hegemony of the US dollar.

And the writer of this article is absolutely correct, in characterising money spent on wars as becoming "dead-ended" in terms of providing any real assistance in critical areas like infrastructure repair, and childhood poverty, which is becoming epidemic in this country.

STATE TO ALLOW COPS TO SNATCH YOUR PHONE AFTER BEING STOPPED & SEARCH IT USING A “TEXTALYZER”

As government continues to expand, finding ever more ways to feed itself through taxation, it seeks to justify this burgeoning existence. Enter the Nanny State.

New York is a leader in developing laws and regulations to protect us from ourselves, perhaps most famously with the Big Apple’s attempt to ban-large size sugary drinks. The Empire State has the highest cigarette taxes in the nation, which fuels a black market, and it places heavy restrictions on other “sins.”

No one doubts that cigarettes and an excess of sugary drinks are bad for the health, but it is not the state’s responsibility to manage this behavior. The issue becomes trickier when bad behavior puts other people’s lives in danger.

New York was the first state to place restrictions on cell phone use while driving, which has prompted 46 other states to ban texting while driving over the last seven years. The issue of driving while distracted—especially texting—has undoubtedly become a huge problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but shouldn't just about the first thing an officer should be doing at a crash be determining of anyone is injured to the point where they will need an ambulance to get immediate medical attention?!?

This is just another potential tax, from the State of New York taxistas, gone wild!!

407,000 Workers Stunned As Pension Fund Proposes 60% Cuts, Treasury Says "Not Enough"

407,000 private sector workers are about to lose most of their pensions.

I first wrote about this on April 21, in One of Nation’s Largest Pension Funds (Truckers) Will Reduce Benefits or Go Broke by 2025.

The Central States Pension Fund, which handles the retirement benefits for current and former Teamster union truck drivers across various states applied for reductions under that law.

Currently the plan pays out $3.46 in pension benefits for every $1 it receives from employers. That’s a drain of $2 billion annually.

The plan filed for 60% cuts in pensions. The Treasury Department has the final say. The verdict came in today: “cuts not deep enough”.

VIDEO: HILLARY HECKLED — AT HER OWN FUNDRAISER!

Some people dislike Hillary Clinton so much they’ll contribute to her campaign just so they can confront her.

Such was the case at a fundraising event in Park Ridge, Illinois on Thursday.

Cell phone video has emerged from the event that was closed to the media showing at least one heckler starting in on Clinton almost immediately after she began speaking.

The largely inaudible chants continued as Clinton tried to speak over them.

“There’s a lot of energy and a lot of anxiety and frustration right now in our country that spills over into our political system,” Clinton said.

“So I’ll just keep talking,” she said.

“It kind of comes with the territory these days and what I have found is people who like to yell rarely like to listen.”

Ironically, Clinton go louder to talk over the protesters, in essence refusing to listen to them.

Hillary spoke for a few moments about small businesses and wage disparities before more people started heckling her.

Austrians vote on rightist contenders

Austrians have gone to the polls in a presidential election that serves as a bellwether for rising populist sentiments in Europe.

Norbert Hofer of the right-wing populist Freedom Party enters the run-off election as the favourite, after the 45-year-old won the first round in April with 35 per cent of the votes.

Alexander Van der Bellen, a 72-year-old former Green party leader, came in second in April, with 21 per cent. Although he runs as an independent, his campaign was financed by the Greens.

As the Freedom Party has a eurosceptic and anti-immigration stance that is also followed by other populist parties in Europe, the presidential race has drawn an unusual amount of attention abroad, especially in neighbouring Germany, where the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) enjoys growing support.

Andre Poggenburg, the AfD chief in the eastern German state of Saxony-Anhalt, said that a win by Hofer would be a signal for Germany and noted an "atmosphere of change when it comes to national parties" in Europe.

Sanders supporters secure protest permits for Democratic National Convention

’s nearly certain that Bernie Sanders will lose the Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton at this point, but his supporters are making plans to ensure they have a voice at the party’s national convention in July. Philadelphia, where the convention will take place, has approved four demonstration permits for events in support of Sanders near the Democratic National Convention, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

One of the permits authorizes an event that includes four days of all-day rallies at FDR Park, which is located next to the Wells Fargo Center, where many of the Democratic National Convention events will take place. Philadelphia expects about 30,000 attendees at the pro-Sanders rallies in the park, and organizers told the Wall Street Journal they hope to see more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sanders' supporters were NOT violent at the Nevada Democratic Convention: it was agents provocateurs, attempting to smear Sanders' supporters as violent.

But Bernie Sanders has both philosophical and pragmatic reasons to chose to stay in the race; one, that they do have some kind of influence on the party platform, and two, there might be an issue coming up regarding Clinton between now and the National Democratic Convention which could, in fact, force her to step down from the race.

It wasn’t long before things took a turn. At 9:30, a full half hour before registration closed, Lange read the results of ballots that had been passed out to early arriving conventioneers regarding temporary rules for the convention, rules which would discount the results of the county convention (the second tier of the caucus process, where Bernie had won more delegates), rules which would require that all votes at the convention be decided by voice alone, and which ruled that the decision of the chairperson would be final. These temporary rules had passed with flying colors, which did not sit well with the Bernie delegates, many of whom had not been given ballots. Suddenly half the people of the room were on their feet, shouting “No!!!!” My son and I jumped to our feet as well, added our voices to the chorus. It felt good, all those voices of resistance vibrating through my body. I started to feel less like a cloud.

U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High

Suicide in the United States has surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, a federal data analysis has found, with increases in every age group except older adults. The rise was particularly steep for women. It was also substantial among middle-aged Americans, sending a signal of deep anguish from a group whose suicide rates had been stable or falling since the 1950s.

The suicide rate for middle-aged women, ages 45 to 64, jumped by 63 percent over the period of the study, while it rose by 43 percent for men in that age range, the sharpest increase for males of any age. The overall suicide rate rose by 24 percent from 1999 to 2014, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, which released the study on Friday.

EGYPT OFFICIALS RELEASE FIRST FOOTAGE OF EGYPTAIR DEBRIS; FIND AIRPLANE BLACK BOXES

Following two days of searching, Egyptian crews have located the data recorders for EgyptAir Flight 804 close to an area where human remains and debris from the crashed flight have been found, CBS News reports citing government sources.

Planes and vessels from Egypt and five other countries - Greece, Britain, France, the United States and Cyprus - continued searching a wide area of the eastern Mediterranean on Saturday, a day after the Egyptian military found debris from the passenger jet in the sea 180 miles north of the Egyptian port city of Alexandria. The waters in the area are 8,000 to 10,000 feet deep, and the pings from the black boxes can be detected up to a depth of 20,000 feet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported a couple of days ago in crimesofempire.com:

Updated May 20th, 2016. Debris and Body parts found in the Mediterranean. Tonight the Greek Defence minister, Panos Kammenos has confirmed that the Egyptian military have found plane debris and body parts approximately 290kms/180 miles north of the Egyptian city of Alexandria. “A short while ago we were briefed by the Egyptian authorities … on the discovery of a body part, a seat and baggage just south of where the aircraft signal was lost,” (Source) It therefore appears that all persons on board Egypt-Air 804 have perished. It has also been reported that Flight 804 made a series of violent maneuver’s prior to disappearing from radar. The plane is said to have turned violently 90 degrees before making a 360 degree turn in the opposite direction. The US Government are being quoted by the US media as stating that satellite imagery shows no obvious sign of an explosion in the area at the time. “officials from multiple US agencies told Reuters that a preliminary examination of satellite imagery had not shown any signs of an explosion.”(Source). Incident Concurrent with NATO naval drill in the Mediterranean. Another element that this incident shares in common with several recent air disasters including MH370 and the destruction of Metrojet Flight 9268 over Egypt seven months ago is that it has taken place during the course of a large US led military drill. Exercise Phoenix Express gets under way in Greece | Naval Today In this case the drill is named Phoenix Express, it started two days ago and continues until May 27th and involves the naval forces of “Algeria, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States, representatives from the NATO Shipping Center, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the EU border management agency Frontex are taking part.” (Source) This is Naval Today’s description of the drill. “Phoenix Express is sponsored by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and facilitated by U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet. It is designed to improve regional cooperation, increase maritime domain awareness information-sharing practices, and operational capabilities to enhance efforts to achieve safety and security in the Mediterranean Sea.” “This year’s exercise control group will be hosted at the NATO Maritime Interdiction Operations Training Center (NMIOTC) located in Souda Bay, Greece, but training will take place throughout the Mediterranean to include North African nations’ territorial waters.”
Conclusions: Impossible.

But if in fact this plane got shot down in the middle of a military exercise, it would not have been the first.

And if in fact this was the case, look for the US government to shuck, jive, and throw up a huge, inky smokescreen of propaganda to claim that this didn't happen, just as they did with TWA 800.

From Iraq to Palestine, the power of the pro-Israel lobby is plain to see

The boundaries of what is and isn’t possible change constantly in politics. We like to think that in a democracy, citizens are empowered sufficiently to partake in the process of political change; we even believe that this is a unique characteristic of our progressive society where politicians listen to the electorate, and then enact laws and policies on the basis of facts in pursuit of the national interest and human rights. Such a belief if misguided.

Nevertheless, it has been a key feature of our society: slavery, once socially acceptable and legal is universally prohibited; racial and sexual discrimination is no longer tolerated; colonisation and occupation of another country is prohibited; the denial of a people’s self-determination has become an offence. The shift also occurs in the opposite direction towards the curtailment of freedoms and the weakening of equality and human dignity. The negative shift is often more subtle.

Poland's PM defies EU pressure over constitutional crisis

Poland's prime minister has defied pressure from European Union leaders who are urging an end to a dragging political conflict, saying her conservative government will never bow to any ultimatum.

Prime Minister Beata Szydlo was responding Friday to a warning from the EU, which said it will take action next week unless Warsaw takes steps toward ending a stalemate that is paralyzing Poland's Constitutional Tribunal. The EU could recommend ways of fixing the issue and could even impose sanctions in the name of protecting EU values.

Speaking in Parliament, Szydlo drew an outcry from the opposition by saying the "Polish government will never yield to any ultimatum" but only to the will of the Poles. She said Poland was "in dialogue" with the EU and expressed surprise at its tone.
