Fresh Germany terror fears as Merkel's government 'lets migrants with FAKE PASSPORTS in'

Politicans around the country have accused the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) of failing to root out counterfeit documents.

Bavaria's Interior Minister this weekend claimed a "significant" number of fake passports have been found on migrants in his state.

Joachim Herrmann also raised fears the apparent oversight could lead to further horrific Islamic State terror attacks in Germany.

America's first wave-produced power goes online in Hawaii

Off the coast of Hawaii, a tall buoy bobs and sways in the water, using the rise and fall of the waves to generate electricity.

The current travels through an undersea cable for a mile to a military base, where it feeds into Oahu's power grid—the first wave-produced electricity to go online in the U.S.

By some estimates, the ocean's endless motion packs enough power to meet a quarter of America's energy needs and dramatically reduce the nation's reliance on oil, gas and coal.

But wave energy technology lags well behind wind and solar power, with important technical hurdles still to be overcome.

Moscow Denies Russian, Syrian Planes Struck Aleppo Aid Convoy

Russian and Syrian aircraft did not carry out any airstrikes against a UN humanitarian aid convoy near the city of Aleppo, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Tuesday. According to the general, the monitoring finished when all humanitarian aid was delivered at around 10:40 GMT. "Further movements of the convoy were not monitored by the Russian side. Only the militants controlling this area know details of the convoy’s location."

You can't ask that! Juncker in row as journalist 'told to soften questions’ to EU boss

Mr Juncker, the president of the European Commission, faced a grilling from a trio of YouTube presenters in a live interview last Thursday.

But in a video on her YouTube channel, Ms Birbes - one of the interviewers - last night published secretly-filmed footage of an apparent YouTube employee warning her not to “get on the wrong side of YouTube and the European Commission” before the event.

The employee, shown wearing a YouTube-branded T-shirt, was quoted as referring to a potential “red flag” as they discussed her questions.

Emails Show Hillary Aide Sid Blumenthal Created Obama "Birther" Conspiracy

Following last week's clarification from Trump that President Obama is American-born, the mainstream media has worked hard to dispel his claims that Hillary's team in fact started the "birther" issue. Just this morning, Hillary exclaimed that she was "appalled" that Trump had not apologized to Obama, which is ironic as McClatchy has just clarified the details on emails that show Hillary Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal did share "birther" story tips.

Pluto's emitting X-rays, and NASA doesn't quite know how

The mission scientists are now chewing like crazy. As Johns Hopkins astrophysicist Carey Lisse, who led the Chandra team, put it: “Pluto is interacting with the solar wind in an unexpected and energetic fashion”.

Lisse, who also holds the laurel for discovering X-rays emanating from comets, says the solar wind's charged particles are probably the source of the necessary energy.

However, as NASA says in this media release, there's somewhat more X-ray activity than scientists expected.

“Although Pluto is releasing enough gas from its atmosphere to make the observed X-rays, in simple models for the intensity of the solar wind at the distance of Pluto, there isn't enough solar wind flowing directly at Pluto to make them,” the statement says.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Aleppo Media Centre’ Funded By French Foreign Office, EU and US

This Aleppo Media Centre pulled off a propaganda coup – one that generated calls for a No-Fly-Zone and associated western intervention policies all focused on salvaging the US failed road map of “regime change” in Syria. However, a number of independent international journalists, media analysts, and peace activists began to question the imagery and its source, which revealed some extremely disturbing details – not only about the picture itself, but more importantly about the organization who supplied it to an eager western media.

THE BANK FOR INTERNATIONAL SETTLEMENTS WARNS THAT A MAJOR DEBT MELTDOWN IN CHINA IS IMMINENT

The pinnacle of the global financial system is warning that conditions are right for a “full-blown banking crisis” in China. Since the last financial crisis, there has been a credit boom in China that is really unprecedented in world history. At this point the total value of all outstanding loans in China has hit a grand total of more than 28 trillion dollars. That is essentially equivalent to the commercial banking systems of the United States and Japan combined. While it is true that government debt is under control in China, corporate debt is now 171 percent of GDP, and it is only a matter of time before that debt bubble horribly bursts. The situation in China has already grown so dire that the Bank for International Settlements is sounding the alarm…

Normally the Bank for International Settlements is not prone to making extremely bold pronouncements, and so this warning about China seems a bit out of character.

Between January and June 2016 there were 1,007,094 fraud cases in the UK compared to 660,308 in the first six months of 2015. Each case represents a card or account attacked, not an individual person.

Financial Fraud Action UK figures include payment card, remote banking and good old fashioned cheque fraud losses.

Corey Haim's A-list rapist may finally be named — what took so long?

A tabloid is reporting that one of Hollywood's most recognizable faces is a child rapist and will soon be outed. Shocking? Yes. Surprising? Hardly. Because former child stars have been talking about this for years.

It was a horrifying moment in one of TV's most oddly compelling reality shows when, on The Two Coreys, Corey Haim broke down revealing he was raped as a kid. After Haim's 2010 death, Corey Feldman elaborated that his friend was raped by a Hollywood bigwig at just 11 years old.

Feldman has been discussing the sick environment of Hollywood child sexual abuse for years, even detailing the abuse both he and Haim suffered in his memoir, Coreyography. Most recently, last spring he told The Hollywood Reporter about parties for preteen actors where predators groom their next victims, and said that he and Haim had attended many. And he's not the only one speaking out.

Wels Fargo CEO Faces Senate 'Grilling'

Just when the images of Too-Big-To-Fail Bank CEOs facing faux-angry (but impotent under lobbying fees) politicians had moved to the back of the mind, Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf will visit Capitol Hill to explain to the Senate Banking why he is "deeply sorry" about the massive and systemic fraud his bank visited upon Americans, and why he "accepts full responsibility" but will not resign (because he really owes it to the company to stay around and fix this mess).

As we previewed earlier, today at 10am, the US public will be treated to the latest Congressional kangaroo court, when Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf will tell the Senate Banking Committee that he is "deeply sorry", and accepts “full responsibility” for unethical sales practices in its retail banking business while apologizing for “not doing more sooner” to address the cause of such behavior.

SOROS IS "INVESTING" $500 MILLION IN EUROPE'S REFUGEES AND MIGRANTS: HE EXPLAINS WHY

Confirming once again that he is the silent puppet master behind Europe's refugee crisis, overnight billionaire investor, and stalwart Hillary Clinton supporter, George Soros said in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal that he would invest $500 million to meet the needs of migrants and refugees.

Soros' investment comes in response to the Obama administration's "Call to Action" initiative, asking U.S. companies to help ease the migrant crisis. Soros, founder of the Open Society Foundations, also said he plans to work closely with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Rescue Committee to guide his investments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am now firmly of the opinion that every refugee and migrant in Europe should be gently airdropped on any property Soros owns, to allow him, and his family , to become "culturally enriched".

In the Chinese language, the word for "crisis" and "opportunity" is one in the same; Soros is positioning himself to make money, and take advantage of the horrific immigration situation in Europe, to force his views on the EU, and participating European countries. Perhaps the following scenario is precisely what he wants to see played out in all of Europe:

Images of immigrants at Calais

And here is an article with a very grim prediction about what will happen in Europe, if uncontrolled immigration is allowed to continue; and trust me, this gentleman can hardly be characterised as a" tin-foil hatted kook":

Society in western Europe is on the verge of breaking down amid chaotic violence caused by economic dislocation, mass immigration and terrorism. This is not the view of some ‘crazy survivalist’ but head of the Swiss Armed Forces. Lieutenant-General André Blattmann has issued a warning to the Swiss people that society is dangerously close to collapse and advised those not already armed as part of the Swiss Army reserve to take steps to arm themselves. Blattmann has been head of the Armed Forces since, 1 March 2009 and his words carry very significant weight in a country in which several Citizens’ Initiative referenda against burqas and mosques have proven enormously popular as concerns grow about immigration and Islamisation. In the last two World Wars, the Swiss combination of mountains and armed citizenry preserved the country’s peace and neutrality, but in the coming conflict, Switzerland already has its own massive fifth column. According to the newspaper Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten: The situation is growing increasingly risky, Blattman begins. “The threat of terror is rising, hybrid wars are being fought around the globe; the economic outlook is gloomy and the resulting migration flows of displaced persons and refugees have assumed unforeseen dimensions.”

Bush Just Made a MASSIVE Announcement About Donald Trump – BREAKING NEWS

Bush will vote against his own party, and cast a ballot for Hillary Clinton in the November election.

Even with a FBI criminal scandal and countless criminal acts, Bush is willing to vote for her anyway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More evidence that the Clintons and Bushes are a ruling duopoly more concerned with prolonging their hold on power than what is best for the nation.

This partnership in corruption goes back to the 1980s when the CIA undertook a clandestine operation to manufacture and smuggle untraceable weapons into Nicaragua to arm the Contras against the Sandinistas. The operation was run by former CIA director and then Vice President George H. W. Bush, and the guns manufactured and smuggled out of Arkansas, under then Governor Bill Clinton. As this operation (which eventually became known as the Iran-Contra scandal) was illegal under the Boland Amendment and the Logan act, it was funded with tons of cocaine flown back from central America into Arkansas on the same airplanes that carried the guns south. Bill Clinton provided security for the operation as well as the money laundry; a loose connection of banks such as Madison Guarantee, land-flips like Whitewater, Flowerwood, and Castle Grande, with the payouts made through a state office, the Arkansas Development Finance Authority, created by Webb Hubbell and signed into law by Bill Clinton.

Everyone along the pipeline was made very rich, and in a repeat of the corruption under prohibition, the traffickers in illicit substances had enough money to bribe or buy their way into the highest offices of the land.

Their plan was to turn the White House into a personal legacy, to be handed back and forth from Bush to Clinton to Bush to Clinton, to maintain the illusion of choice in the American people while preserving the power of two dynastic ruling families. Obama was a ringer in 2008 but as an insider didn't pose a threat to the continuing involvement of the US Government in drug trafficking.

Donald Trump is an outsider. Were he to win the White House and learn what has been going on, it is likely the narcocracy that has dominated American politics for thirty years would be torn apart and some very big names would be looking at serious jail time. And THAT is why a Bush is making a big deal about voting for a Clinton!

US companies are 'hoarding' a record $2.5 trillion of cash overseas

The recent fight between Apple, Ireland, and the European Union has once again shined a spotlight on the growing trend of US companies storing cash overseas to avoid taxes.
In fact, the amount of cash held by US-based companies in foreign countries hit a record $2.5 trillion in 2015, which is roughly 14% of the US' total GDP, according to Andrew Hunter, an economist at Capital Economics, who described the increase as companies "hoarding" cash overseas.

Khan said Trump needs to moderate his stance on Muslims or he thinks they will launch more attacks on U.S. soil, per Teaparty.org.

UN summit on refugees fails to offer solutions

On Monday, one of the highest-level global summits ever convened on refugees and mass migration took place at the UN General Assembly in New York. Alongside it, President Barack Obama has also convened a separate pledging conference.
These events should have been the reform moment when the world came together to update a broken refugee system that is struggling to meet contemporary displacement challenges. But whether they will have a lasting legacy remains uncertain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is because the only real solution is one the UN won't have the courage to carry out, which is to end the US wars of conquest that have created most of the refugees!

UC Berkeley reinstates Palestine course, but tried to change content

UC Berkeley has reinstated a student-led class on the history of Palestine suspended on 13 September, following sustained outcry by students, members of faculty, lawyers and supporters of campus free speech and academic freedom.

More than 40 off-campus Israel-aligned groups – along with the campus’ Hillel chapter – had pressured the university and its outgoing chancellor, Nicholas Dirks, to censor the class.

The groups claimed it was a venue for “political indoctrination.”

There are indications that an Israeli government official and the heads of Israeli universities also acted to pressure the Berkeley administration.

Donald Trump Does Have Ideas—and We’d Better Pay Attention to Them

Iddeas really don’t come along that often. Already in 1840, Alexis de Tocqueville observed that in America, “ideas are a sort of mental dust,” that float about us but seldom cohere or hold our attention. For ideas to take hold, they need to be comprehensive and organizing; they need to order people’s experience of themselves and of their world. In 20th-century America, there were only a few ideas: the Progressivism of Wilson; Roosevelt’s New Deal; the Containment Doctrine of Truman; Johnson’s War on Poverty; Reagan’s audacious claim that the Cold War could be won; and finally, the post-1989 order rooted in “globalization” and “identity politics,” which seems to be unraveling before our eyes.

SYRIA: Negotiations and The Battlefield ~ Dr Bouthaina Shaaban

The moment the Syrian Arab Army liberates an area from terrorists, voices in the West begin to express worry about civilians and their humanitarian situation, calling for a truce and the delivery of aid! The harmony between the situation the terrorists find themselves in and the West’s worries has become apparent at different junctures.

This proves that the West, which had occupied Iraq with its own troops, has only changed its tactics, using instead proxies in the form of terrorist groups that are funded, armed, and directed from abroad. We saw many countries moving in their troops and heavy weapons when these terrorist groups failed to achieve the objectives planned for them.

Therefore, the results of the meeting between Kerry and Lavrov on 9 September indicates without a doubt that the difficulty of having any dialogue is rooted in the fact that it is between those who targeted Syria, and those who stood firm in protecting the Syrian state and people.

Syrian Army Ends Ceasefire After US Airstrike Kills More Than 80 Soldiers Fighting Islamic State

By Baran Hines

Syrian government officials have declared the military will no longer observe the ceasefire agreed to by the United States and Russia one week ago. The goal of the agreed ceasefire was to end the fighting in the Syrian proxy war, eliminate terrorist groups in Syria and then negotiate a political agreement for reforms. Monday marked the end of a 7 day period which was supposed have reduced violence before the peace process could move to the next step of the US and Russia targeting Islamic State and Al Nusra terrorists.

The decision comes after the United States admitted to bombing Syrian military forces who were fighting the Islamic State on Saturday...

“Are you concerned that this weekend’s attacks or potential incidents in the coming weeks might be an attempt by ISIS or ISIS sympathizers, or really any other group, maybe the Russians, to influence the presidential race in some way and presumably try to drive votes to Donald Trump, who is, as you’ve said before, widely seen as perhaps being somebody who they would be more willing to– or see as an easier person to be against?” she asked.

Heavy bombing pummelled rebel-held parts of Aleppo on Monday, an AFP correspondent in the city said, less than two hours after Syria's army announced the end of a week-long truce.
Air strikes hit five eastern neighbourhoods of the battleground city, while heavy shelling was heard coming from Aleppo's southern outskirts.

EXCLUSIVE: Hillary in for a new walloping with 'Clinton, Inc.' movie that digs deep into her psychology – and Bill's – as it prepares to hit 1,000 screens in October

Hillary Clinton is running for president as a payback for putting up with Bill for decades, a new political documentary concludes

'Clinton, Inc.' is adapted from a 2014 book by Daniel Halper and will saturate movie theaters in the month before the Nov. 8 election

The film is a psychological study of the Clintons and what makes them tick
Reveals that Bill Clinton likely never knew who his biological father was
Portrays Hillary as his rock-steady helpmate, like the austere and ambitious grandmother who helped raise him

Bill's lovers were more like his mom, promiscuous and reckless

Hillary, who needed her husband to advance despite her own feminist chic, endured repeated infidelities and stayed with Bill – much like her own long-suffering mom kept an abusive marriage together for years.

Movie casts 'Clinton, Inc.' as a family business revolving around wealth and power, and projects Chelsea Clinton as the heir apparent

Gov. Snyder lied: Flint water switch was not about saving money, records suggest

An e-mail obtained by Motor City Muckraker shows the deal would have saved the city $800 million over 30 years, which was 20% more inexpensive than switching to the Karegnondi Water Authority.

A high-ranking DWSD official told us today that Detroit offered a 50% reduction over what Flint had been paying Detroit. In fact, documents show that DWSD made at least six proposals to Flint, saying “the KWA pipeline can only be attributed to a ‘political’ objective that has nothing to do with the delivery – or the price – of water.”

Hillary Clinton Cancels Event in California, Campaign Says Pneumonia is Back

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has again cancelled an event in California as a result of her health and the campaign is claiming she is being treated for pneumonia. The cancelation marks the third day–following Monday and Tuesday of last week–that the candidate’s health has pulled her from the campaign trail.

America, The Helpless ‘Superpower’

The year was 1955, the dawn of the cold war, and an old prophet was writing
what would be his last book. It was a volume of history – The American Story,
he called it – in which he reviewed the cavalcade of twists and turns that had
brought us to that moment when we stood “at the top of the world, “ as he put
it. There was no terrorist threat back then – not counting the threat of global annihilation that hung over us during those years of “duck and cover” and backyard bomb shelters. Yet Garet Garrett – a former editor of the New York Times and the Saturday Evening Post, an Old Right “isolationist” who lived in exile on a New Jersey farm – foresaw our present age, and what we would become:

“How, now, thou American, frustrated crusader, do you know where you are?

Future aid to Ukraine in jeopardy over gas monopoly takeover

Ukraine may lose hundreds of millions of dollars in aid after a surprise decision by the government to take direct control over the country's gas production and transportation company.

The takeover may be in violation of the $17.5 billion bailout deal with international creditors and comes just days after Kiev received a $1 billion tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“If all the facts we have learned from third parties are confirmed, we are very disturbed and this development is very serious,” said Anton Usov, a spokesperson for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, quoted by the Financial Times.

According to the newspaper, another lender to Ukraine, the World Bank, is also concerned about the situation with Naftogaz.

Ukrainians are not going to be happy in dealing with high energy costs (if they can even get it) coupled with freezing temperatures this winter!!

This Is Hilarious: Man Shouts “Hillary For Prison” And Clinton Responds With “Let’s Make It Happen!” - Mac Slavo

You’d think we’re making up the follow incident involving Hillary Clinton, but luckily, just like her recent medical emergency, it was all caught on video.

Paul Joseph Watson explains:

Hillary Clinton was caught in an embarrassing moment when someone at her rally yelled “Hillary for prison!”, to which the presidential candidate responded, “Let’s make it happen!”

The cringeworthy moment was captured on film.

Given her now notorious propensity for being constantly “confused,” Hillary probably thought the man was saying “Hillary for president!,” but nothing could be further from the truth.

US Desperately Pumps "Humanitarian" Smokescreen For Failing Syria Ceasefire

Washington’s lie about seeking a genuine ceasefire in Syria is in danger of being exposed for the world to see. So, hilariously, a charade is being hurriedly orchestrated in order to hide this ignominy. As usual, the Syrian government is being scapegoated for the real cause of violence in the country. That real cause is Washington’s state-sponsored terrorist-fueled war for regime change.

After four days of continuing deadly breaches by US-backed «rebels» since the Kerry-Lavrov ceasefire deal was implemented last Monday, Washington and the dutiful Western mainstream media are preparing the inevitable excuses.

Rather than focusing on ongoing «rebel» violence in contravention of the truce, US Secretary of State John Kerry fingered the Syrian government for preventing humanitarian access to insurgent-held eastern Aleppo as the reason for why the ceasefire is in danger of collapsing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wounded animals are dangerous.

And right now, the Clinton Cartel and their minions are feeling ...desperately wounded, by what might appear to some as a resounding, potential presidential triumph by Donald Trump.

Unfortunately, the closer it appears that Trump will win this election handily, the closer we are to a potential war against Russia, China, and Korea, as "payback" to Trump, even before he has had the opportunity to take the Oath of Office in January.

Democratic operatives will be ruthless in setting up Trump to fail, even if it means starting shooting wars with Russia, China, and Korea.

CHICAGO POLICE TO UNDERGO MANDATORY 'DE-ESCALATION' TRAINING

The Chicago Police Department launched mandatory training designed to help officers de-escalate conflicts, including situations involving the use of force and mental health issues.

The program, which Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is scheduled to discuss Monday evening, is among several department reforms following the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The black teenager was shot 16 times in 2014 by a white Chicago police officer. Graphic squad-car video of the shooting was released last year, prompting citywide protests, police leadership changes and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation.

The training at the Chicago Police Academy, which is in its second week, was developed with a panel of national policing and mental health experts. It uses live scenarios and exercises to help officers better assess how to respond to complex and tense situations. Some of the tactics include using slower and calmer approaches when possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This de-escalation training should be going on nationally, right now.

More than 800 immigrants mistakenly granted citizenship

The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department's inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren't caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot begin to articulate just how safe and protected this screw-up makes me feel; if THIS is the level of "professionalism" we can expect, collectively, from the Department of Homeland Security, and the other involved agencies, then all the people in all the critical departments need to be collectively fired, and people who can actually do the job, hired!!

Russia Condemns Obama’s Decision to Conduct Illegal Air Strikes against Syrian Forces, Washington’s Objective was to Protect ISIS Terrorists

“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.

“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.

“The beginning of work of the Joint Implementation Group was supposed to be September 19. So if the US wanted to conduct an effective strike on Al-Nusra or ISIS, in Deir ez-Zor or anywhere else, they could wait two more days and coordinate with our military and be sure that they are striking the right people.”

“Instead they chose to conduct this reckless operation,”

“So it may well be, one has to conclude, that the airstrike has been conducted in order to derail the operation of the Joint Implementation Group and actually prevent it from being set in motion,” …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that such US/Israeli/Australian attacks against Syrian forces, and perhaps - soon - against Russian forces in Syria- will be happening as well.

The goal of these attacks will be to goad Russia into a military response against US military assets, and the moment that happens, we will be looking at war with Russia.

Also, as reported at globalresearch.ca yesterday:

The ISIS launched attacks on the Syrian army positions in Deir Ezzor only 7 minutes after the US-led coalition’s airstrikes on Saturday, a military source said, adding that the air and ground assault were highly coordinated, According to FNA report. The source said after the coalition’s pounding of the Syrian army near Deir Ezzor airbase, the ISIS could take full control of al-Tharda mountain and then Deir Ezzor military base, adding that the army and national defense forces deployed near the airbase immediately won it back from the terrorists by launching a counterattack. Noting that Deir Ezzor is now almost in tranquility and no change has occurred in the military map of the region, the source said by attacking the Syrian army positions, the US seeks to prevent military operations to break the terrorists’ siege on the city.

And I have to ask myself; how could this not be true, if it only took ISIS 7 minutes after the US-lead coalition bombing attacks to attack this position?!?

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Watching the unveiling of the next political era in the United States has been satisfying on many levels. It is especially nice to see large numbers of deplorables standing up for their bad selves, and watching the political class recoil and faint.

When it was a “close” race, which is to say, a hackable one, delivering the expected status quo government, it was interesting to watch and assess. A close race (post-Republican primaries) through a mainstream media lens is one where Hillary is the predicted winner, but things close up a bit as we approach election day, and she is still the winner. After all, she has all that government experience. It’s what plants crave, as the common wisdom of our time holds.

The Threat of World War III: The Great Unmentionable in the 2016 Campaign

The most important issue in the US presidential election is the one neither of the two main capitalist candidates, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, is talking about: the increasing likelihood that the next US president will order direct military action against Russia, China or North Korea, all countries that possess nuclear weapons.

The mounting danger of such a war was underscored by the US bombing of a Syrian government military post on Saturday, killing dozens of Syrian army soldiers. The US claim that this was done accidentally—against a major, well-known Syrian military installation, the Deir ez-Zor Air Base—has no credibility. A similar US “mistake” could easily lead to the death of Russian soldiers and escalate into a full-scale military confrontation between the two powers that control 93 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On his last paragraph, the writer is absolutely dead wrong; it was Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2008 where those rumors originated.

Of the two candidates, at this moment, Clinton seems the more war-centric, particularly against Iran, and Trump appears to want to ratchet down tensions with (at least) Russia, and perhaps Korea and China as well.

I am not exceptionally "giddy with joy" concerning the choices US voters have in our Presidential election; but right now, I am very much edging toward Trump, because he is a businessman, and is not part of the DC establishment.

I frankly think our country needs that right now.

And although I do want to see a woman president of this country, and soon, that woman most fit to run this country is not Hillary Clinton; she comes with more moral, financial, and emotional "baggage" than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot!!

Native Americans Document Hundreds of Pipeline Leaks and Oil Spills Kept Secret by North Dakota Government

North Dakota’s oil frenzy is leaking like a sieve. You most likely have not heard about it because fracking companies, pipeline owners, and state officials have been keeping information about hundreds of oil spills secret for years.

According to Natives News, After a huge spill of more than 20,000 barrels on a wheat farm was hushed up for 11 days, the Associated press discovered the extent of the years-long cover up:

Records obtained by the AP show that so far this year, North Dakota has recorded 139 pipeline leaks that spilled a total of 735 barrels of oil. In 2012, there were 153 pipeline leaks that spilled 495 barrels of oil, data shows.

A little more than half of the spills companies reported to North Dakota occurred “on-site,” where a well is connected to a pipeline, and most were fewer than 10 barrels. The remainder of the spills occurred along the state’s labyrinth of pipelines.

India blames Pakistan as Kashmir attack kills 17 soldiers

India accused Pakistan of being behind Sunday's separatist attack on an army base near their disputed frontier that killed 17 soldiers, in one of the most deadly attacks in Kashmir in a quarter-century-old insurgency.

Four commando-style gunmen, armed with AK-47 assault rifles and grenades, burst into the brigade headquarters in Uri at 5:30 a.m. (midnight GMT) and were killed after a three-hour gunfight, a senior Indian army officer said.

The incident sharply increased tensions between the bitter, nuclear-armed rivals and will raise fears of a potential military escalation. Indian and Pakistani troops are in close proximity in many places along one of the world's most heavily militarised frontiers, and exchanges of fire are not uncommon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would strongly encourage Prime Minister Modi to do the only moral, and reasonable thing possible to stop this horrific fighting; offer the Kashmiris a referendum, long promised, but never delivered, which will give Kashmiris the choice between staying as part of India; becoming independent; or joining Pakistan.

Because, until that has been accomplished, nothing will be resolved for the Kashmiri people, and - unfortunately - the violence will most likely continue.

America, the Helpless ‘Superpower’

On a late summer Saturday night in the Chelsea district of New York City an explosion caused by an IED that injured 29 people shook the nation: a second bomb was discovered a few blocks from the first site and disabled. This was preceded by a pipe bomb going off at the site of a benefit run for families of US Marines in Seaside, New Jersey, a mere ninety minutes away: multiple devices were found at the same location and were disabled. Injuries were prevented only because the event was delayed due to the size of the crowd; five thousand people would have been in proximity otherwise. To top it off, a person invoking Allah stabbed eight people at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota – albeit not before first asking them if they were Muslim. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the stabbing spree, dubbing the perpetrator a “soldier of Islam.”

Imagine you are a visitor from Mars, watching all this from a very great height. Surely two aspects of this are striking:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I must speculate: these come at a time when the accusations regarding "pay for play" political appointments reach all the way up to the Oval Office, and the US military has bombed Syrian troops with white phosphorous weapons, which is a war crime.

Right now, things feel to me just as they did right after the Boston Marathon bombings, which - again - happened under President Obama's watch. And one wonders: what was going on at that time which was critically suppressed because of coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings?!?

As reported by CNN that day,

2. UKRAINE CRISIS Now what? A Ukrainian government deadline for pro-Russian protesters to lay down their arms and leave occupied buildings passed early today with no sign of it being heeded in the eastern cities of Donetsk and Slaviansk. The protesters were given until 2 a.m. ET to disarm or face a "full-scale anti-terrorist operation" by its armed forces. But the deadline passed with no movement at the regional government building in Donetsk, which has been occupied for more than a week. Previous deadlines have passed with no consequence. NATO says Russian armed forces are massing on Ukraine's eastern border and could invade, while Moscow says they are merely carrying out military exercises.

(Remember: the US/Soros organization and the IMF generated the putsch in Ukraine which unseated Yanukovich and anointed Poroshenko as President of Ukraine. Poroshenko's presidency continues, two years on, to be going very badly for the US government)

The Veteran's Administration scandal was about to break:

The Veterans Health Administration scandal of 2014 is a reported pattern of negligence in the treatment of United States military veterans. Critics charged that patients at the VHA hospitals had not met the target of getting an appointment within 14 days. In some hospitals, the staff falsified appointment records to appear to meet the 14-day target. Some patients died while they were on the waiting list; reports differ about whether they died because of the delay. Many VHA managers were fired as a result. Defenders agreed that it was unacceptable to falsify data, but the 14-day target was unrealistic in understaffed facilities like Phoenix, and most private insurers didn't meet a 14-day target either. By most measures, the VHA system provides "excellent care at low cost," wrote Paul Krugman, who believes that the attack on the VHA system are motivated by conservatives who want to discredit a government program that works well. Conservative legislators have proposed privatizing the VHA, and legislative reforms will make it easier for veterans to go to private doctors. CNN reported on April 30, 2014 that at least 40 United States Armed Forces veterans died while waiting for care at the Phoenix, Arizona, Veterans Health Administration facilities. By June 5, 2014, Veterans Affairs internal investigations had identified 35 veterans who had died while waiting for care in the Phoenix VHA system.[1] An investigation of delays in treatment throughout the Veterans Health Administration system is being conducted by the Veterans Affairs Office of the Inspector General,[2][3][4] and the House has passed legislation to fund a $1 million criminal investigation by the Justice Department.[5] On May 16, 2014, the Veterans Health Administration's top health official, Dr. Robert Petzel, retired early at the request of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki.[6][7] On May 30, 2014, Secretary Shinseki resigned from office amid the fallout from the controversy.[8][9

Is the US government above recruiting "patsies" like the Tsarnaev brothers, then keep them held in suspension until a "major distraction" is needed, then place them into play at just the right moment, to keep people from focusing on critically important issues?!?

The short answer is, no.

But the "new normal", at least inside this country, is that the United States government is thoroughly impotent to protect any American from any kind of chaos; may have, in fact, created the chaos, and is very happy with the situation as it is, because fear deflects focused, clear thinking.

Florida mosque arsonist shared extreme pro-Israel propaganda

The man accused of setting fire to the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce in Florida a week ago is an ardent supporter of Israel who labeled all forms of Islam as “radical.”

Joseph Michael Schreiber, a 32-year-old messianic Jew, was arrested at his home in St. Lucie, Florida, on Wednesday and charged with arson and a hate crime. Police say he confessed after his arrest.

His attack is part of a spate of anti-Muslim hate crimes since the start of the current US election season.

Why Warren Buffett wants to sell you a car

The chairman of Berkshire Hathaway BRK.A, -0.22% BRK.B, +0.20% is noted for keeping things simple. Buffett chooses businesses with protective “moats” around them, insulating them from competition, and bets big when he finds one.

Indeed, reports show that the return on equity for the average U.S. auto dealership in 2013 was 29%. How can selling cars have a “moat” or produce such big returns? After all, the theory of capitalism suggests that free competition should destroy such prodigious returns when they periodically arise.

The answer: government protection. Every U.S. state except Maryland regulates automobile distribution through “franchise laws” that strengthen dealers’ power. Dealers are not employees of the manufacturers, but have enormous sway over the manufacturers.

Swedes need to give up their identity and *they* must integrate with migrants because "being Swedish needs to be about more than skin color and place of birth."

In this new TV advert from Swedish charity organization "IM," Swedes are called on to create "Det Nya Landet," or "The New Country," which appears to just be Africa with some Muslims and one Asian dude.

Hillary Clinton in big trouble with poll-a-coaster set to put Trump out in front

Hillary Clinton is in trouble - big, sweaty-palm trouble.

Her polls are falling off a cliff, as Donald Trump-wary Republicans gradually shift from the "undecided" column back to a candidate who fills them with dread.

The decline has accelerated since Clinton's reckless "basket of deplorables" speech on September 9 and her seeming collapse in public on September 11, when she got knocked by a bout of pneumonia.

The House Intelligence Committee’s Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Snowden Report

Late yesterday afternoon the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a three-page executive summary (four, if we count the splendid cover photo) of its two-year inquiry into Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency (NSA) disclosures. On first reading, I described it as an “aggressively dishonest” piece of work.

With a day or so to reflect on it, I believe it’s worse than that. The report is not only one-sided, not only incurious, not only contemptuous of fact.

It is trifling.

After twenty-five months of labor, the committee’s “comprehensive review” of an immensely complex subject weighs in at thirty-six pages. (None of which we may read, because it “must remain classified.”) I have graded college term papers that long. It is one more dispiriting commentary on the state of legislative oversight that the committee’s twenty-two members, Republican and Democratic, were unanimous in signing their names.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Snowden did should start a conversation among Americans as to just how their country is being governed, and that is very critical that we have this conversation.

More US Troops Arrive at Iraqi Airbase South of Mosul

Reports out of the area around Qayara say that hundreds of additional US ground troops have arrived at the Qayara Air Base, to join several hundred troops already there. The troops are expected to provide “logistic support” for the Mosul invasion.

Iraqi troops “captured” the Qayara Air Base to much fanfare last month, and intend to use this as a base of operation in the attack on Mosul. The base had long since been abandoned by ISIS, stripped clean by ISIS forces that have controlled the area for the past two years.

A lot of effort is being pumped into repair the air base, which was rendered largely useless by heavy US airstrikes in recent years, and a new bridge to allow forces to cross the river and advance against the area south of Mosul.

Though the Pentagon has long warned that it is unlikely the Iraqi military is really ready to take the enormous city of Mosul, US officials have suggested that the invasion could begin as soon as October

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is the attempted taking of Mosul from the jihadists in Iraq Obama's "October Surprise", in attempting to give a boost to Clinton's sagging and fatigued presidential campaign?!?

But what happens if the military campaign fails utterly to retake the city?!?

ISIS Overruns Syrian Army Base After US Bombings

In the defense of the Deir Ezzor Airport, the Syrian military has long depended on an army base in Jebel Tharda to repel ISIS advances. That base has been lost this weekend, after a disastrous series of US-led airstrikes killed a large number of Syrian troops defending the base, and ISIS quickly overran what was left.

For over 20 minutes, the coalition warplanes attacked the base. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the attack killed at least 83 Syrian troops and wounded 120 others. The US Central Command claimed they thought the base belonged to ISIS.

It does now. With the forces decimated by the US attack, ISIS quickly overran the base. Syrian state media claimed an ongoing effort to recover the site, but it does not appear to have been successful yet, as ISIS managed to shoot down a Syrian warplane, flying out of Deir Ezzor Airport, over Jebel Tharda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though this is just the outcome the US and Israel wanted to see happen here.

Payback? Syrian Armed Forces Reportedly Shoot Down US Spy Drone Over Deir ez-Zor

A US Air Force surveillance aircraft was reportedly downed on Sunday in the province of Deir ez-Zor, where American jets bombed Syrian forces encircled by Daesh militants a day earlier, killing 62 personnel.

According to Press TV, the Syrian Army brought down a UAV that was spotted hovering over mountains in the Jabal Therdeh area in the east of the province. AMN new agency, presenting itself a source of news from the Arabian world, specified that shots were fired by the Syrian Arab Army's 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Tank Division, though noting that drone managed to leave the Syrian airspace.

Massive prison strike takes place in memory of Attica riot, with 20,000 inmates across 24 states pledging to 'end slave labor for prisoners'

America is currently undergoing the biggest prison strike in history, with prisoners in 40-50 prisons across 25 states participating in the organized action, it has been reported.

Using secret cell phones, social media and people on the outside, 'at least' 20,000 prisoners have downed tools in protest against free prison labor, The Intercept said.

'This is a call to action against slavery in America,' organizers on the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) said in a statement. 'Forty-five years after Attica, the waves of change are returning to America’s prisons.'

'This September we hope to coordinate and generalize these protests,' the statement continued, 'to build them into a single tidal shift that the American prison system cannot ignore or withstand.'

The strike began on September 9, the 45th anniversary of the Attica prison riot, in which prisoners demanded political rights and better living conditions.That riot saw 43 dead, 33 of whom were inmates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in atlantablackstar.com in October 2014:

Prison labor in the United States is referred to as insourcing. Under the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), employers receive a tax credit of $2,400 for every work-release inmate they employ as a reward for hiring “risky target groups.” The workers are not only cheap labor, but they are considered easier to control. They also tend to be African-American males. Companies are free to avoid providing benefits like health insurance or sick days. They also don’t need to worry about unions, demands for vacation time, raises or family issues. According to the Left Business Observer, “the federal prison industry produces 100 percent of all military helmets, war supplies and other equipment. The workers supply 98 percent of the entire market for equipment assembly services; 93 percent of paints and paintbrushes; 92 percent of stove assembly; 46 percent of body armor; 36 percent of home appliances; 30 percent of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21 percent of office furniture. Airplane parts, medical supplies and much more: prisoners are even raising seeing-eye dogs for blind people.” With all of that productivity, the inmates make about 90 cents to $4 a day. Here are some of the biggest corporations to use such practices, but there are hundreds more:

So, Let's "name and shame", shall we?!? Again, from atlantablackstar.com, These companies benefiting from prison slave labor include, but are not limited to:

1. Whole Foods
2. Mc Donald's
3. Wendy's
4. Wal-Mart
5. Starbuck's
6. Victoria's Secret
7. Fidelity Investments
8. JC Penney
9. Kmart
9. American Airlines
10.Avis

This is a nasty practice, and should be halted immediately. And of course, it is getting nearly any coverage in the United States, because most people don't really want to know where the things they buy come from, particularly if it is made or produced by prison labor.

Obama says a low turnout from black voters in upcoming presidential election would be 'a personal insult' to his legacy

President Barack Obama said Saturday night he will take it as a 'personal insult' if the African-American community fails to turn out for the presidential election and encouraged black voters to support Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Obama delivered his final keynote address to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, symbolically passing the torch to the person he hopes will succeed him next year.

Clinton, his former secretary of state, was honored for becoming the first female presidential nominee of a major party.

Obama said his name may not be on the ballot, but issues of importance to the black community were, including justice, good schools and ending mass incarceration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are moments when I have to conclude that President Obama lives in a parallel reality from that with which so many African-Americans have to contend, 24/7.

As reported at nationalreview.com in March of this year:

With President Obama’s gas tank now less than an eighth full, it’s amazing where he has taken black Americans. Mainly, it’s been a long ride in reverse. Even liberal black broadcaster Tavis Smiley has criticized Obama for this. As Smiley told HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski, “Sadly — and it pains me to say this — over the last decade, black folk, in the era of Obama, have lost ground in every major economic category.” Smiley is almost completely correct. Based on the Obama administration’s own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics — with one key exception — black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009. During Obama’s tenure, the percentage of black Americans struggling below the poverty line has advanced, according to the most recent Census Bureau data, from 25.8 in 2009 to 26.2 in 2014 — up 1.6 percent. Real median income among black households during those years, according to the Census Bureau, sank from $35,954 to $35,398 — down 1.5 percent. RELATED: Obama’s Legacy Is Already Collapsing The number of black food-stamp participants exploded across that time frame from 7,393,000 to 11,699,000, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports — up 58.2 percent. Also, from Obama’s oath of office through the fourth quarter of 2015, the percentage of black Americans who own homes foundered from 46.1 percent to 41.9 percent, according to the Census — down 9.1 percent.

And those issues of "...justice, good schools and ending mass incarceration."?!?

In the words of Tony Soprano, for African Americans, "Fuggetaboutit!!", at least under President Obama's watch. Justice for African Americans, unless one has the (past) wealth of an OJ Simpson simply does not exist ; inner city schools resemble minimum security prisons, complete with guards; and the prisons themselves are overloaded to the max.

Merkel makes historic losses in Berlin as German Chancellor faces WORST result in history

GERMANY’S Angela Merkel was dealt another blow tonight to her open door immigration policy in the vote to elect a new city government in Berlin.

The win comes a fortnight after it pushed the chancellor's CDU conservatives into third place in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, her home state.

Syrian military declares U.S.-Russia-led ceasefire over

Syria’s military on Monday declared the seven-day initial period for a ceasefire brokered by the United States and Russia over, without indicating whether the truce would reinstated.

It said in a statement that “terrorist groups,” a term the Syrian government uses to refer to all insurgents fighting against it, had failed to commit to any of the provisions of the deal, and had used the ceasefire to rearm while violating it 300 times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the response the US government was hoping for, after its bombing of Syrian troops at Deir Ezzor.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against many more incursions into Syria, against both Syrian and Russian troops, by the US military.

U.S., ISRAEL LAUNCH AIRSTRIKES ON SYRIAN GOVERNMENT FORCES - DIRECTLY SUPPORTING ISIS AND AL-QAEDA

Earlier today the Syrian Arab Army had announced that 1,000 fresh soldiers arrived in Deir Ezzor to liberate it from ISIS.

The U.S. planes came from Erbil in the Kurdish separatist region of Iraq.

The Syrian troops were holding positions on Jabal Tharda, a mountain that overlooks Deir Ezzor's airport. The mountain is now fully under Islamic State control. With this IS has firecontrol over the airport and the Deir Ezzor garrison as well as more than 150,000 civilians living under government protection are thereby cut off from supplies and any further reinforcements. Government forces have launched a counterattack to regain the vital position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get my head around the reality that the US is working with Israeli in supporting Isis and Al Qaeda in Syria: any questions?!?!?

And that performance by U.S. Ambassador Power at the UN on Saturday at the emergency meeting called by Russia over the incident was extraordinarily cringeworthy, to say the least, and engineered to try to get a rise out of the Russian Ambassador, Churkin; the only thing that happened was, at one point, he walked out of the room.

And if Power was going to elaborate on atrocities, how about the atrocities committed by the US/Israeli enabled and funded Isis and Al Qaeda?!?

TRANSFORMATION OF A SELF HATING JEW TO A TERRORIST

According to the ‘logic’ of the present day elders of zion I have always been a ‘self hating Jew’. This was merely because I refuse to hate anyone else … does that make any sense to you?

It seems that times have changed and new definitions have been added to the zio-dictionary … Now I am a terrorist. The reason being that I am a part of and supporter of the BDS Movement. Have you ever heard of a terrorist that refuses to kill? Have you heard of one that refuses to support those who do?? Now you have!
