Americans' debt level notches a new record high

Americans' debt level notched another record high in the second quarter, after having earlier in the year surpassed its pre-crisis peak, on the back of modest rises in mortgage, auto and credit card debt, where delinquencies jumped. Total U.S. household debt was $12.84 trillion in the three months to June, up $552 billion from a year ago, according to a Federal Reserve Bank of New York report published on Tuesday.

Being in Virginia in Time

In my recent book Being in Time – a Post Political Manifesto, I pointed out that the West and America in particular have been led into a disastrous Identity (ID) clash. This week in Virginia we saw a glimpse of it.

In the book I argue that the transition from traditional Left ideology into New Left politics can be understood as the aggressive advocacy of sectarian and divisive ideologies. While the old Left made an effort to unite us all: gays, blacks, Jews or Whites into a political struggle against capital, the New Left has managed to divide us into ID sectors. We are trained to speak ‘as a…’: ‘as a Jew,’ ‘as a black,’ ‘as a Lesbian.’ The new left has taught us to identify with our biology, with our gender, sex orientation and our skin colour, as long as it isn’t ‘White’ of course.

In Being in Time, I noted that it was question of time before White people would also decide to identify with their biology. And this is exactly what we saw in Virginia last weekend.

Texas Cops Spent 11 Minutes Searching a Woman’s Vagina, Found No Drugs

Charnesia Corley was a 21-year-old college student with no criminal record when two cops from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office stopped her in June 2015 for running a red light.

After searching her car, police claimed to have found .02 ounces of marijuana. That was enough, they apparently felt, to justify a full-body cavity search. When Corley refused to remove her clothes in the dimly lit parking lot where she was being detained, one of the officers threw her to the ground, pushed her partially underneath her own car, and yanked Corley’s pants down to her ankles. For the next 11 minutes, dash cam video of the incident shows, she was held down by two officers while being searched. Corley claims that fingers repeatedly probed her vagina and that the officers ignored her protests. A third officer stood nearby holding a flashlight. No drugs were found on Corley person.

"Attack Venezuela!?" Ron Paul Rants "Trump Can't Be Serious!"

There is something unsettling about how President Trump has surrounded himself with generals. From his defense secretary to his national security advisor to his White House chief of staff, Trump looks to senior military officers to fill key positions that have been customarily filled by civilians. He’s surrounded by generals and threatens war at the drop of a hat.

President Trump began last week by threatening “fire and fury” on North Korea. He continued through the week claiming, falsely, that Iran is violating the terms of the nuclear deal. He finally ended the week by threatening a US military attack on Venezuela.

Criminal charges sought for protesters who toppled Confederate statue in North Carolina

UTTER MADNESS!

When protesters, angry over the deadly incidents in Virginia this weekend, decided to take down a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier in North Carolina on Monday, law enforcement stood back and watched.

At no time did officers with the Durham Police Department or deputies with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office intervene as activists brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull it down, according to multiple media reports.

No one was arrested Monday, however, a day later, Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews announced investigators were working to identify the protesters and planned to bring criminal charges against them.

China Steel Output Hits All Time High, Setting Stage For Escalating Trade War

While the long-term consequences of Trump's first trade war salvo launched today will become obvious only in hindsight, it may have come at an opportune moment: just as China prepares to flood the world with record amounts of steel. Overnight, the National Statistics Bureau reported that even as Beijing intensified its war on smog, local steel output "paradoxically" hit a new monthly record in July, some 74.02 million tonnes, up 10% Y/Y (or 50% more than China's GDP) and higher than the previous record of 73.23 million tonnes set in June.

Used Car Prices Crash To Lowest Level Since 2009 Amid Glut Of Off-Lease Supply

The U.S. auto market is at an interesting crossroads with used car prices crashing to new lows every month while new car prices continue to defy gravity courtesy of a somewhat 'frothy', if not suicidal, lending market that has seemingly decided that anyone with a pulse is financially qualified for a $0 down, 0% interest, 80 month loan on a brand new $40,000 luxury vehicle of their choice.

As the Labor Department’s consumer-price index data showed last Friday, used car prices once again dropped in July to the lowest level since the 'great recession' of 2009. In fact, since the end of 2015, the cost of used vehicles has dropped in all but three months and are now roughly 10% off their 2013 high.

Insanity: Denmark Gives Homes And Jobs To Former ISIS Thugs For “Hug A Terrorist” Campaign

There’s a very simple principle that helps form the bedrock of any prosperous and civilized society. When people do bad things, they should be punished for it. The moment that rule is turned upside down, and the wicked and weak are rewarded for their behavior, society will crumble. There’s no way around it. Every society that rewards bad behavior is on the fast track to destruction.

You might think that would be obvious, but there are plenty of nations throughout history that have fallen under the weight of corruption, in one form or another. Our species has made this mistake countless times. We never learn, and we always pay for it.

Do Our Elections Even Matter?: Study Finds There Are 3.5 Million More Registered Voters In U.S. Than Eligible Voters

All Americans need to ask themselves a very important question. Who really runs this country? Supposedly the answer is us, which is what we’ve been told our entire lives. But that’s becoming increasingly hard to believe as time goes on. How can ordinary law abiding Americans be running this show, if our elections appear to be a total sham? We live in a country where the voter rolls seem to be stacked with illegal immigrants and dead people, and our voting machines are shockingly easy to hack. And not only that, but states like California have hundreds of thousands more registered voters than eligible voters.

Silicon Valley Tightens Its Grip On Free Speech

In a chilling oped published in The New York Times on July 14, Lisa Feldman Barrett, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, argued that so-called “hate speech” is the same thing as physical violence because it may possibly cause emotionally fragile individuals stress — and should be made illegal.

Thankfully, the First Amendment prohibits the federal government from following such advice, but online companies are taking it upon themselves to stamp-out so-called “hate speech,” strangling free speech and the free exchange of ideas in the process.

A number of troubling actions by internet companies — Google most prominent among them — are making it increasingly clear that some in Silicon Valley have proclaimed themselves defenders of the progressive, politically correct faith, and that those firms will silence any and all heretics who challenge those beliefs.

Libyan Faction Leader Haftar Travels to Moscow, Asks for Military Aid

Haftar is backed by Egypt and United Arab Emirates. His rivals are backed by NATO, Qatar and Turkey... Prominent Libyan military commander General Khalifa Haftar, who represents one of the major forces in the fractured country, has visited Moscow. He met top Russian officials, including the foreign and defense ministers. Haftar is a powerful and largely independent figure in the ongoing civil conflict in the country. The veteran Libyan general, who lived for two decades in the United States, played a major role in toppling Muammar Gaddafi’s government in 2011. At the moment, two factions claiming to be country’s national government are operating in Libya – one is based in Tripoli and the other in Tobruk in the east. Meanwhile, multiple independent and partly independent militias, as well as outright terrorist groups, including Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) are also vying for power in the war-torn country.

Official says Israeli delegation will try to persuade White House that cease-fire deal should be amended to make sure Iranian forces, Hezbollah and Shi’ite militias are kept out of Syria

A delegation of Israeli defense officials will visit Washington later this week for talks with senior White House and American defense officials. Haaretz has learned that the delegation will be headed by Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, and he will be joined by the head of the Israel Defense Forces Military Intelligence, Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi, as well as the head of the Defense Ministry's political-security department, Zohar Palti.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mossad Chief Cohen, Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi; and Zohar Palti, a word, please: your "defense interests" for Israel have been assured by the United States of America for generations, culminating in the defense aid package given to you by President Obama, to the tune of 38 billion dollars, over the course of a decade.

Obama hands Israel the largest military aid deal in history.

This was again topped by President Trump's aid over concerns of his Saudi weapons deal in May:

Both Presidents Obama and Trump have done this, knowing it is a violation of the Symington Amendment and the Glenn Act, which prohibits any financial aid to any country which refuses to sign the NNPT, and does not allow its nuclear weapons to be inspected: Israel fails, miserably, on both counts, but still, always gets the money it wants, while homeless American Vets sleep in our streets, and kids living in extreme poverty are horrifically food-insecure.

Israel has not been invited to the discussion between the US and Russia about the issue of peace in Syria; Russia was invited by the Syrian government to rid it of all jihadists; Israel and the United States were not.

Israel's greatest problem, is its pathological inability to get along with its regional neighbors in an intelligent, and cohesive manner; therefore, it is always demanding that "Daddy Warbucks" (read: the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America") get it out of its current self-imposed dilemma, whether it is punching up a cease fire agreement, in this case, or anything else, like "regime changing Tehran, but only with American blood and American money.

I frankly hope that the meeting goes absolutely nowhere; it may cause Israel to "play better with others" in the region. And please note: this delegation is not going to Moscow to attempt to get what it wants, from the Syrian cease fire.

In the video obtained by TASS Lemeshko says the course included physical training, shooting practice, special tactical instruction and the handling and use of explosives. "What were your tasks?" an FSB investigator asks Limeshko in the video. "Reconnaissance and sabotage in the Donesk People’s Republic, Crimea and other areas of Russia," the detainee says in reply...

"We can assume that they [the United States] will now find another pretext to raise tensions further and take new steps to hamper the activities of Russia’s diplomatic missions in the US," Ryabkov said. "If it really happens, they will send us a signal indicating their readiness to further strain bilateral relations. We have warned them many times to avoid such actions," the Russian diplomat added.

Race and intelligence

The connection between race and intelligence has been a subject of debate in both popular science and academic research since the inception of IQ testing in the early 20th century. While tests have broadly shown differences in average scores based on self-identified race, there is considerable debate as to whether (and to what extent) those differences reflect environmental or genetic factors, as well as to the definitions of "race" and "intelligence" and whether they can be objectively defined. Currently, there is no non-circumstantial evidence that these differences in test scores have a genetic component, although some researchers believe that the existing circumstantial evidence makes it plausible that hard evidence for a genetic component will eventually appear.

However, some Latin American countries reject the idea put forward by US President Donald Trump to use military force against Venezuela, Nezavisimaya Gazeta writes. Vladimir Davydov, Academic Director of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute for Latin American Studies, singled out several aspects of Pence’s Latin American tour in an interview with the paper. "First of all, this is an attempt to go over from the improvisation hitherto felt in remarks made by the top officials in Washington to some degree of systematization in the work on the Latin American track," he emphasized. "Secondly, Pence will have to solve such a ‘technical’ task as translating the language of threats into the language of diplomacy.

Nezavisimaya Gazeta: French disappointed in Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron's ratings are declining, with his performance approved by just 36% of the population, Nezavisimaya Gazeta writes citing the results of a survey conducted by the Ifop research center. Macron’s popularity rating reached a new low, having fallen by almost 20 points compared to July when his performance was approved by 54% of Frenchmen. According to local media, even Francois Hollande, one of the most unpopular French leaders, did not encounter such public discontent during the first 100 days of his presidency. Many tend to link Macron’s growing unpopularity to his reforms, particularly, with the liberal economic agenda and plans to reduce the country’s budget deficit. Macron’s decision to implement the most painful reforms at the beginning of his five-year presidential term looks quite logical, Sergey Fyodorov, Leading Research Fellow at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute for European Studies, told the paper.

According to the WHO examination, of the 2,282 requests submitted to the Coordination and Liaison Administration to the Gaza Strip in May, 47.2 percent were approved, 2.1 percent were refused, while 50.7 percent were held up with no explanation, causing the patients to miss their appointments for examinations or treatments. Often these are people who had previously received exit permits for treatment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This refusal to allow sick Gazans to access care is one of the multi-pronged Israeli "final solutions" to the "Palestinian question: assassination by denial of medical care.

LEAKED EMAILS: SAUDI POWER BEHIND THE THRONE “WANTS OUT OF YEMEN”

THE KEY SAUDI official in charge of the catastrophic ongoing war in Yemen wants it to stop, he told two influential foreign policy figures in Washington this spring.

Mohammed bin Salman, a member of the Saudi royal family who effectively rules the country, made the comments to Martin Indyk and Stephen Hadley. Indyk was a high-level diplomat during both the Clinton and Obama administrations and Hadley a top adviser to former President George W. Bush.

Indyk relayed the conversation to Yousef Al Otaiba, the United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States, and the man most responsible for aiding bin Salman’s rise in Washington.

“I think MBS is far more pragmatic than what we hear in saudi public positions,” Otaiba wrote to Indyk on the morning of April 20.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was in April; if Prince Salman wants Saudi troops out of Yemen, why has he not given the order to draw down?!?

And why, in the same blog, do we have this accompanying story?!?

Iraqi Forces Begin Liberating the Last Major ISIS Stronghold in Iraq

Iraqi forces have begun their process of liberating Tal Afar, the last major ISIS stronghold in Iraq. On Tuesday morning, a spokesman for the Iraqi Ministry of Defense confirmed the launch of a major-scale operation, with both, air force and ground units participating. According to an unnamed local source from the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh, six powerful explosions have already shook Tal Afar, itself located west of Mosul, amid reports that one of them hit an explosives manufacturing plant, with no information given on the killed terrorists or exact material damage as of yet. The town of Tal Afar is the last remaining major ISIS stronghold in Iraq, and which came under control of the terrorist group back in the summer of 2014.

Saudi crown prince "wants out" of Yemen war

Saudi crown prince "wants out" of Yemen war

A few facts about the war on Yemen:

Yemen IS rich in natural resources, but they are not yet "developed".

The guy the US wants to run Yemen, named "Hadi" was appointed to a 3 year term, that expired 2 years ago, and tasked with drawing up a new Constitution and holding real elections. Subsequently, Hadi, not having completed either of his tasks, resigned from the Presidency when his term was over.

Hadi, while called "President", is no more President of Yemen than President Herbert Walker Bush is President of the US.

The Saudis have gone to war against Yemen twice before in their short reign, and were soundly defeated each time.

Maps of the Arabian peninsula older than 200 years have the word "Yemen" printed over much of what we call "Saudi Arabia" today. It is also known as "Happy Arabia" or "Felix" meaning fertile Arabia.

Rogozin: North Korea using Ukrainian engines for its ICBMs impossible without Ukrainian specialists

Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Rogozin commented on reports of North Korea "copying" Ukrainian rocket engines. According to him, it is impossible to do this without specialists from Ukraine. "What do they mean 'copies of engines'? It's not a painting or a sculpture. In order to make a "copy," you must have either the original engine or its detailed drawings. Yes, and without Ukrainian specialists, capable and ready to deploy production on a foreign technological platform, this can not be done. It comes down to a matter of smuggling in order to bypass all existing international bans," he said on his Twitter page... Earlier, journalists reported that the DPRK was using Ukrainian missiles. The New York Times reports that authorities in the DPRK nuclear program are primarily obliged to Ukraine, citing a new report of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and Intelligence Services.

FSB detains 4 ISIS militants planning attacks on Moscow [Video]

In recent months, this is the second such special operation in the Moscow region: in May, the FSB reported on the detention of four militants, also citizens of Russia and the states of Central Asia, who were preparing explosions at transport facilities. In both cases, the terrorist attacks were prepared with the participation of the leaders of the Islamic State, who are in Syria... The FSB published an operative video recording of the detention of alleged Islamic state militants who were preparing terrorist attacks in transport and in shopping malls in Moscow. The footage shows, in particular, how the operatives conduct an analysis of the explosives seized from the detainees. "We took samples." According to the samples... this is a tri-peroxide of acetone, a very dangerous initiating explosive," the employee explained.

Pence: Failed State Venezuela a Threat to US: Says Venezuela Is 'Collapsing Into Dictatorship''

Speaking to reporters during a visit to Colombia, Vice President Mike Pence warned that Venezuela is “collapsing into dictatorship,” and that the country becoming a “failed state” would make it a threat to the security and prosperity of the United States.

Pence was a bit vague on what the US is actually going to do about it, as opposed to President Trump’s threats to attack the country militarily, rather saying the US will use all of its economic and diplomatic power to ensure democracy is restored in Venezuela.

Pence dodged questions about whether this necessarily meant regime change, but other administration officials have made clear they oppose the Maduro government in general, and its recent moves to increase the power of the ruling Socialist Party in particular.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Vice-President, a word, please: much of this "failed state" status in Venezuela is a direct result of United States' economic war engineered against it.

Unless you have a bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder), you will remember that, upon the prodding of the United States, Saudi Arabia lowered its oil price to punish Russia economically.

Want to hurt Russia?!/ Lower the price of oil!

But this oil price reduction not only hurt Russia economically; it crushed the Venezuelan economy as well:

Falling crude oil prices crush Venezuela's ailing economy

Then, President Obama created a series of sanctions against Venezuela:

President Obama slaps sanctions on Venezuela

In 2017, President Trump placed sanctions against Venezuela:

President Trump Sanctions Venezuela

Vice-President Pence, this collective DC upset with Maduro is less about his dictatorship in Venezuela, as the US government has supported many US-centric dictators throughout history, like Pinochet in Argentina, or the Shah in Iran; that is not the issue here.

The issues, sir - and you know this to be true- are about Venezuela's huge oil reserves; establishing a US-centric government to insure that the oil is not sold to Russia or China, nor that they get any hand in its production; and insuring that Venezuela's oil is only sold for the US dollar; that's it, in a nutshell.

Ukrainian terrorist attack stymied in Crimea

FSB agents seized two TNT bombs, a grenade, a telephone, a saw, and a camera from the detained Ukrainian saboteur, Gennady Limeshko, as well as documents: a Ukrainian passport and a migration card showing the saboteur entered Russia on August 9, 2017. During interrogations on August 12 Limesko said "I received five thousand hryvnias for the assignment," after the attempted attack was stymied by the FSB officers. The Investigation Department of the FSB Agency for the Crimea and Sevastopol has filed a criminal case. The Kiev regional court of Simferopol has put the saboteur in custody for two months. We recall that today the FSB prevented a series of attacks prepared by Ukraine in the Crimea. According to the DSC of the Russian Federal Security Service, an agent of the Security Service of Ukraine, Gennady Limeshko, was detained. Yesterday, Crimean border guards detained and handed over to police officers two Ukrainian citizens who were declared on federal wanted list in Russia.

Homicide detectives probe man's overdose death at the home of prominent L.A. Democratic donor Ed Buck

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the fatal drug overdose of a 26-year-old man at the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck.

Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Monday that while coroner’s officials ruled Gemmel Moore’s July 27 death an accident, homicide detectives will be conducting a follow-up investigation based on “additional information.” He declined to elaborate.

Initial investigations by deputies and the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office did not flag anything suspicious in Moore’s death, sheriff’s Capt. Chris Bergner said, but the new probe was being launched “out of abundance of caution.”

Saboteurs are being trained by CIA to be sent to Crimea and Donbass

Saboteurs are being trained in Ukraine by CIA instructors to be sent to the Crimea and the Donbass Republics. There's a real 'pipeline' of talent at work - one group is sent after the next group. The process can stop only after the change of the Ukrainian Nazi ruling regime - ex-Verkhovna Rada deputy Oleg Tsarev told "PolitNavigator". "As long as this power exists in Ukraine, it will pose a threat to Russia, to Russian citizens and will in every possible way provoke a war. If they are afraid to go to open military actions, they will do terrorist acts. And, proceeding from the fact that the entire branch of work with Russia, the Crimea, the People's Republic of Lugansk and the People's Republic of Donetsk is supervised by the guys who work directly for the CIA, it will be so. The mechanism is running, and they will send in group after group. The groups are of 6-8 people. Many of them were trained in the United States.

US, China, Koreas Revisit Diplomacy After Soaring Tensions

A flurry of threats last week had the whole region fearing a new Korean War was about to break out, but Monday gave way to at least a bit of an attempt by everyone involved to revisit the possibility of diplomacy.

That’s not to say that diplomacy is any more imminent this week than war was last week, but as North Korea put its Guam missile launches on hold, US officials against made it very clear they were at least open o a resolution that didn’t involve nuclear war.

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un said that US should show itself to be committed to an alternative to the conflict, while US officials continued to reiterate how ready they were for war. Either way, both sides agree it was entirely the other side’s fault, and that it’s entirely up to the other side to stop the provocations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

However this decision came down from Kim Jung Un to not send his missiles flying in a Guam-centric direction, the world is, collectively, breathing a sign of relief this morning.

The question is, what will the US, China, North and South Korea do now?!?

Will they take advantage of the slight ratcheting down of tensions in order to get to the conference table, and hammer out a true peace deal with which to replace the Armistice, in return for Kim Jung Un abandoning his nuclear program, and let North Korea trade, unimpeded by sanctions?!?

In the Chinese language, the ideogram for "Crisis" and "Opportunity" are one in the same; let us hope the US government takes great advantage of this slight lessening of tensions here.

WIKILEAKS: RIYADH FLIRTS WITH TEL AVIV THROUGH NORMALIZATION

A “highly classified” press release by the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was published by WikiLeaks, reveals the level of rapprochement between Riyadh and Tel Aviv. Saudi Arabia initiated discussions on the issue of normalization with Israel and the 2002 Saudi peace initiative that was adopted by the Arab League at the Beirut Summit in the same year.

This was followed by a media propaganda in 2006, the year in which influential people in Saudi Arabia started speaking out that Israel was no longer among the enemies of the United States, but was the closest to an unofficial ally.

This discourse has developed and turned into Saudi initiatives to establish ties between the two countries in 2008. Since that date, the effectiveness of the ties between Tel Aviv and Riyadh and the support of the rapprochement between the two are clearly noticed.

No where, in bilateral relations in the Middle East, can one see a better personification of the Arabic phrase: "The enemy of my enemy (in this case, Iran) is my friend!"

How Just Opening A Malicious PowerPoint File Could Compromise Your PC

A few months back we reported how opening a simple MS Word file could compromise your computer using a critical vulnerability in Microsoft Office.

The Microsoft Office remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2017-0199) resided in the Windows Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) interface for which a patch was issued in April this year, but threat actors are still abusing the flaw through the different mediums.

Security researchers have spotted a new malware campaign that is leveraging the same exploit, but for the first time, hidden behind a specially crafted PowerPoint (PPSX) Presentation file.

According to the researchers at Trend Micro, who spotted the malware campaign, the targeted attack starts with a convincing spear-phishing email attachment, purportedly from a cable manufacturing provider and mainly targets companies involved in the electronics manufacturing industry.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – AUGUST 15, 2017: TIGER FORCES CLEARING CENTRAL SYRIA FROM ISIS

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces have been further capitalizing from the airdrop operation conducted behind ISIS defense lines in the Homs-Palmyra countryside.

On Monday, the Tiger Forces liberated the villages of Bukhayran, Ariqah and Othmaniyah and then the entire Kawm oasis located on the road between Resafa and Sukhna. On Tuesday, government troops continued developing momentum in the directions of Bir Hisayyah and Taybah.

Russian Ka-52 attack helicopters provide a close air support to the advancing government troops. According to local sources, Russian military advisers are involved in the operation.

If the Tiger Forces capture any of the aforementioned villages, they will be able to threaten all ISIS supply lines in the area. This will decrease the ISIS defense capabilities in Uqayribat in the eastern Hama countryside.

FACTS: Cops Kill Whites at Almost Double The Rate That Cops Kill Blacks

Here are some statistics that are being roundly ignored by a media eager to push the lies that ooze out of Al Sharpton’s mouth on a daily basis: The real statistics show that cops kill whites at almost double the rate that they kill blacks.

Talks show host and columnist Larry Elder did some actual research (something the old media establishment avoids) and found that the claim that blacks are killed by cops more often than whites are killed is simply untrue. In fact, he found that the death by cop for blacks is down 75 percent since 1999.

So, not only is the “Hands Up” saying based on a lie, the entire, racbaiting movement against the police is based on a lie.

COMEY BOTCHED THE HILLARY CLINTON EMAIL INVESTIGATION

Dear John: You recently criticized the FBI for its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails.

I am a retired FBI agent and extremely proud of my career and service. I feel compelled to write. Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent.

Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation.

Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury.

Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent known to me investigated a criminal case without the use of a federal grand jury, federal grand jury subpoenas, search warrants, etc.

Search warrants and/or subpoenas should have been executed at Clinton’s residences in Chappaqua and Washington and at Platte River Networks.

DOJ DEMANDS 1.3 MILLION IP ADDRESSES OF VISITORS TO ANTIFA WEBSITE USED TO COORDINATE RIOTS

In what is shaping up to be a contentious battle over privacy rights and free speech, the Department of Justice has formally requested that web hosting firm ‘DreamHost’ turn over 1.3 million IP addresses and other information to ‘unmask‘ visitors to the anti-Trump Antifa website ‘disruptj20.org,’ as part of the investigation into crimes committed on and around the January 20 inauguration. DreamHost has challenged the request, claiming the scope of data requested violates the first and fourth amendments because it is too broad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see what the First Amendment to the Constitution says about this behaviour:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This kind of protest is the absolute antithesis of "peaceful assembly"; Antifia is all about violence for staking their claims, and making their point. This is not at all what the First Amendment protects.

And the "stink bombs" which can be made from butyric acid?!? Although not physically harmful, the stench created from the release of this chemical could absolutely cause a panic.

The 4th Amendment

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution states the following: "he Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides that "[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly ..."

In this instance, the government absolutely has probable cause to be chasing down this information; Antifa is a domestic terrorist organisation, dedicated to the overthrow of the legitimately elected government of this country, and that cannot be allowed to happen.

Please, do not get me wrong here; there are a number of moves President Trump has made, which I have criticised, peacefully, vocally, and logically.

Therefore, the kind of language in which I have indulged on this blog, is Constitutionally protected.

But to attempt at a violent overthrow of a legitimately elected President?!?
That's not protected free speech; it is treason.

Flashback: Nuclear Deal With Iran Prelude to War, Not “Breakthrough”

“…any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context—both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it.

The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal.”

The Tragic State of Whites in South Africa

Nearly every new policy introduced by government, (in 90% of the occasions with the support by the main opposition, the Democratic Alliance) bears witness of its anti-white, anti-Christian agenda. Over the past two decades, Marxist Government Policies such as Affirmative Action, or Black Economic Empowerment. have forced thousands of competent whites out of the labor market. The official unemployment figure among whites in South Africa, almost nonexistent prior to 1994, has risen to almost 10% today. Just under 1 in 5 white South Africans now live in poverty. White property owners are permanently haunted by continual threats of disownment in the name of “land redistribution,” and about 19 million acres of formerly white property has already been “redistributed” by the black government over the past 21 years.

Lewandowski Credits Trump's Tough Talk for N. Korea Backing Down on Guam Threat

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to carry out a missile attack on Guam, according to North Korea's state-run media.

Pyongyang's threat of striking the U.S. island territory prompted a surge in tensions in the region last week, with President Donald Trump saying the U.S. military was "locked and loaded" if North Korea acted unwisely.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First off, North Korea never said they were going to attack Guam. They announced a missile test that was going to land near Guam. And yes, it is great that they are going to aim the test elsewhere, but this is Trump backing down and trying to look good while doing it.

Not that it matters, as it looks like the US is going to invade Venezuela and the Philippines next.

UKRAINE HOSTS US MILITARY TO BE PERMANENTLY STATIONED ON ITS SOIL

United States Naval Construction Battalions, better known as the Seabees (C.B. – construction battalion), of the Naval Construction Force held a groundbreaking ceremony for a maritime operations center on Ochakov Naval Base, Ukraine, July 25. According to the Navy.mil, the official website of the US Navy, the maritime operations center is one of three projects that are currently planned to be executed by the Seabees in Ochakov and will serve as a major planning and operational hub during future military exercises hosted by Ukraine. The Seabees arrived in Ochakov in April to establish contracts, obtain construction permits and perform other logistical tasks for the maritime operations center project.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Monday joined the heads of the administration’s military, intelligence and diplomatic corps in calling for a restrained approach to North Korea, tempering the threat of military action while leaving open avenues for a peaceful resolution.

SEATTLE POLICE USE PEPPER SPRAY AS PRO-TRUMP AND ANTIFA PROTESTERS FACE OFF (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These protests appear to be distractions from the real issues with which Americans should be dealing.

Hatred, and clobbering "the other" over the head, are never real solutions for the problems we face.

And we have to come to terms with the reality that racism is, at its very root, a mental illness which has to be taught.

And to anyone who might dismiss this out of hand, please remember the wonderful lyrics from the musical "South Pacific", which opened at the Majestic Theatre in New York in 1949, and pushed a lot of social boundaries for its time, in the piece "You've got to be carefully taught":

"You've got to be taught
Before it's... too late,
Before you are 6...
or 7 or 8
To hate all the people
your relatives hate:
You've got to be
carefully taught!!"

REVEALED: POLICE USE 'CODE WORDS' TO WARN FELLOW OFFICERS THEY ARE ABUSING CITIZENS

Imagine, asking a police officer to treat citizens with respect only to have them swear at you, taser and arrest you. When you ask why you've been arrested, they inform you that you are being charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. (The real reason you were arrested, you challenged their authority.)

But something strange, happened during your arrest. You overheard an officer use a 'code word'.

What did the 'code word' mean? Are the police using secret 'code words', to justify their misconduct and illegal arrest?

No, the truth is much stranger than that.

Police departments are using 'Ethical Policing is Courageous' (EPIC) training so police officers will 'maintain fairness' when dealing with the public.

According to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), "EPIC is the first line of defense in preventing mistakes and officer misconduct.' (To learn more about EPIC click here, here and here.)

If you think the Hillary Clinton email scandal represents the epitome of corruption, check out the latest dirt on the world’s most evil corporation. As part of numerous pending lawsuits against the company for harm caused by its popular herbicide Roundup, it was recently revealed that Monsanto has been working overtime behind the scenes to procure as much evidence as possible that its chemical blockbuster is safe, including by manufacturing artificial “independent safety reviews.”

That’s right: Monsanto has been caught once again engaging in an illicit ghostwriting operation to produce fake scientific studies and reviews to suggest that Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate are completely safe.

Chemotherapy causes cancer, science study finds, confirming Big Pharma’s “repeat business” model for cancer patients

A new study that was just published in the journal Science Translational Medicine reveals chemotherapy increases the number of cancer cells circulating in the body and in the lungs. The chemotherapy drugs not only created new cancers, but spread them to other parts of the body where they are nearly always lethal. Dr George Karagiannis, of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, New York, discovered the horrifying fact that chemotherapy caused new cancers for 20 patients receiving two very common chemotherapy drugs.
