Homeless Man Owes Government Over $110,000 In Fines For Being Homeless

The recent case of a homeless man racking up massive fines has exposed the widespread police practice of fining homeless people for being homeless.
Émilie Guimond-Bélanger, a social worker at the Droits Devant legal clinic in Montreal spoke to the media about a case that she worked on where a homeless man racked up over $110,000 in tickets.

“It was shocking. We’ve never seen someone with so many tickets,” Émilie told CBC.

The man had over 500 tickets, which amounted to over $110,000 in fines. The fines were mostly for things that homeless people can’t control, such as sleeping in the subway or asking people for money.
“He had received around 500 of them [tickets]. I could see that most of the time he would receive many in the same week, sometimes by the same officers as well,” she said.

“It’s very common, to a point where I would say it’s a systematic experience for homeless people,” she added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have been to Montreal; it is a very beautiful, elegant city. It is unfortunate that it has become institutionally deaf, dumb, and blind to its homelessness problem.

I wish someone could get Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre on a plane to Salt Lake City Utah, which, by the end of the year, will pretty much eliminated its homelessness problem.

And how?!? They figured out that it was ultimately cheaper to find modest housing for these people, and pair them with a social worker who could potentially get them working again at something. And even if that doesn't happen, the people are not evicted from their housing.

I would hope that Mayor Coderre would understand that punishing, or criminalising, homelessness doesn't work; the pragmatic, and compassionate approach taken by Salt Lake City, IS working.

The Rich Are Taking The Biscuit

In the UK they have just ran a campaign called “Clean for the Queen.” They were trying to encourage the normal working people (a lot of whom are on very low wages) to go out and clean up the rubbish from the streets left there by disenfranchised youth, overpaid sales executives who think dropping litter is giving people jobs, and the lack of street cleaners because the cut being made by the austerity ideology of this right wing government to try and clean up the mess left behind from helping the bank industry after it destroyed the economy with its own greed. So that the Queen could walk to the shops on her 90th birthday without seeing a disregarded crisp packet.

MEGA BEX ALERT - Is Donald Trump Adolf Hitler Reincarnated?

Reading this title, you may be thinking that this a joke, and I really just despise Donald Trump. Although I truly despise the man, the comparison to Adolf Hitler is quite serious, and terrifying to think about. So you might be asking, what could have Trump possibly done to be compared to one of the most evil men in history?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is a joke. The author just don't see it.

"There is no such a thing in America as an independent press, unless it is out in country towns. You are all slaves. You know it, and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to express an honest opinion. If you expressed it, you would know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid $150 for keeping honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing similar things. If I should allow honest opinions to be printed in one issue of my paper, I would be like Othello before twenty-four hours: my occupation would be gone. The man who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the street hunting for another job. The business of a New York journalist is to distort the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread, or for what is about the same — his salary. You know this, and I know it; and what foolery to be toasting an 'Independent Press'! We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks. They pull the string and we dance. Our time, our talents, our lives, our possibilities, are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." ~John Swinton (1829–1901) was a Scottish-American journalist, newspaper publisher, and orator

The case could be made that Hillary is the reincarnation of Countess Elizabeth Bathory! :)

“There’s an insurrection coming. Mitt Romney just confirmed it. We’ve watched governors, the National Review, conservative leaders, establishment and party operatives trash Donald Trump. But Mitt Romney will always be remembered as the one who put us over the edge and awoke a sleeping giant, the Silent Majority, the American people.

Fact. The establishment is panicked. Mitt essentially called for a brokered convention where the Republican nominee will be decided by party activists and delegates irrespective of their state’s choice… You want a brokered convention? A primer Mitt. Whenever we have a brokered convention we lose.

Dewey and Ford emerged from a brokered convention to lose the general election. So why? Because the party elites and elders want to protect us and stop us from falling into the abyss?… Most of us working two or three jobs think we’re already in the abyss. The Obama abyss…"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reality is that "business as usual", as has been conducted by both parties, has created an inordinate wealth disparity in this country, and Americans are justifiably pissed off, and want these practices to stop.

It's been great for the insiders and the 1 percenters, but most generally lousy for We the People.

The unemployment figures are pure codswallop. There are over 90 million Americans who are not working right now, but are not being counted by the Bureau of Labor, because they have given up looking, many of them in abject despair.

IF the Republican Party insists on a brokered convention, as a way to "punish" Trump for having understood what is going on here, and riding the tide of public outrage against how they have been cheated, scammed, and rooked by the Federal Government in every conceivable way, Republican Chair Lance Preibus just might as well walk over to Hillary Clinton's residence, and hand her the keys to the White House; it's just that simple.

Minority Report: FBI Asks High Schoolers, Teachers To Watch For Signs Of Student Terrorism

High school students and teachers across the US are being encouraged to watch their peers for any telltale signs that might indicate they are about to commit an act of terror.

In an advice booklet entitled ‘Preventing Violent Extremism in Schools’, the FBI says students are “ideal targets” for terrorist recruiters aiming to carry out violent attacks on US soil.

Does a JFK, RFK, MLK Moment Await Trump?

Trump won’t change longstanding policies if elected president. Yet Republican power brokers and media scoundrels want anyone but him representing the party in November.

Will they choose the nuclear option to prevent it? Will long knives eliminate his candidacy the old-fashioned way?

Facebook outrageously maintains an Assassinate Donald Trump page, ludicrously claiming it doesn’t violate company “community standards” left undefined - perhaps including murder.

In 1968, Bobby Kennedy had a lock on the Democrat party nomination, likely able to defeat Richard Nixon in November.

On June 5, he was fatally shot, Sirhan Sirhan falsely imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, set up as a convenient patsy.

Bobby, brother Jack and Martin Luther King were extrajudicially assassinated, victims of state-sponsored terror - Sirhan, Lee Harvey Oswald and James Earl Ray wrongfully blamed.

To avoid the appearance of discrimination, the FBI identifies risk factors that are so broad and vague that virtually any young person could be deemed dangerous and worthy of surveillance, especially if she is socio-economically marginalized or politically outspoken. (Photo: Security array via Shutterstock)

Under new guidelines, the FBI is instructing high schools across the country to report students who criticize government policies and "western corruption" as potential future terrorists, warning that "anarchist extremists" are in the same category as ISIS and young people who are poor, immigrants or travel to "suspicious" countries are more likely to commit horrific violence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "Old Soviet Union" of the FBI! And it has become "official Federal policy>"?!?!?!?

For years, I have been counseling families with skills and kids to get out of this country while they still can.

However, the necessity of doing this, now that this surveillance program is in place, has hit critical mass.

Democratic republics to not engage in this kind of behaviour against students, who are just getting their heads around the way the world works; only dictatorships do this.

Hillary Clintons Pledge To Remove All Lead From The US In Five Years Is Just Not Possible

Hillary Clinton: Email controversy 'moving toward a resolution'

Hillary Clinton predicted that the controversy over her use of a private email server while secretary of state is nearing its end.

"I think we're getting closer and closer to wrapping this up," Clinton said Sunday in an interview with CBS' John Dickerson on "Face the Nation."

Despite her optimism, the investigation has continued. Her comments come after a former State Department staffer was given immunity to cooperate with a Justice Department investigation into those emails.

Clinton said she's "delighted" that Bryan Pagliano, the staffer who helped set up her server, is cooperating with the investigation.

And she deflected concerns that her email use will lead to indictments that could damage her Democratic presidential campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The DOJ is going to say the whole mess was some underling's fault, fry them up to provide a show for the public, and let Hillary skate ... again.

Polish Media Scrambles to Salvage 'Communist Informant' Walesa's Legacy

Poland has been mired in a bit of an identity crisis following revelations last month that Lech Walesa, the anti-communist labor activist turned president, was a paid informant for the secret police during the communist era. Amid the revelations, some Polish media have scrambled to salvage Walesa's reputation using some rather questionable methods.

The Brazilian Earthquake

Imagine one of the most admired global political leaders in modern history taken from his apartment at 6 am by armed Brazilian Federal Police agents and forced into an unmarked car to the Sao Paulo airport to be interrogated for almost four hours in connection with a billion dollar corruption scandal involving the giant state oil company Petrobras.

This is the stuff Hollywood is made of. And that was exactly the logic behind the elaborate production.

The public prosecutors of the two-year-old Car Wash investigation maintain there are "elements of proof" implicating Lula in receiving funds — at least 1.1 million euros — from the dodgy kickback scheme involving major Brazilian construction companies connected to Petrobras. Lula might — and the operative word is "might" — have personally profited from it mostly in the form of a ranch (which he does not own), a relatively modest seaside apartment, speaking fees in the global lecture circuit, and donations to his charity.

York University accused of allowing anti-Semitism to spread

The tensions came to a boil in the past two months over a mural situated in the Student Centre that depicts a well-muscled man wearing an Arab scarf (containing an image of an Israel without borders). The man, holding two stones behind his back, has set his gaze on an Israeli settlement under construction.

Calling the mural “pure hate,” film mogul Paul Bronfman recently withdrew the “thousands of dollars” of film equipment he provides to York film students, along with workshops and seminars, because Shoukri and his administrators refused to take it down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is there anything factually wrong with the mural? Israel is stealing Palestinian lands to build illegal Jews-only settlements. The Palestinians whose homes have been destroyed are angry about it. Trying to deflect criticism of Israel's crimes by screaming "anti-Semite" is on the same moral level as deflecting criticism of the crimes of the Nazis by screaming, "You just hate the German people!"

Apple users hit with first ever Mac ransomware: Hackers are demanding $400 to unlock files on infected computers

Apple customers were targeted by hackers over the weekend in the first campaign against Mac computers.

Called KeRanger, hackers infected the computers with this malicious software through a tainted copy of a popular program known as Transmission.

Security researchers said on their blog that KeRanger is programmed to stay quiet for three days after infecting a computer.

It then connects to the attacker's server, starts encrypting files so they can't be accessed and demands a ransom of 1 bitcoin, or about $400, to unlock the computer.

United States Secretary of Defense Ash Carter told Rachel Martin of National Public Radio, in a new interview released Sunday, that Russia behaved “completely wrongheaded” when it “came in and joined the [Syrian] civil war on the side of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad], further fueling the civil war.” Carter’s statement is an immediately classic example of the pot calling the kettle black. The US government, including the military Carter oversees, long ago committed to supporting another side of the Syrian civil war – the side whose objective is deposing Assad.

Aspen pot sales top $8.3 million in 2015. "Marijuana sales eclipsed alcohol sales in both March and April ... $998,418 worth of marijuana sold in March, and was $140,000 more than alcohol sales."

The seven marijuana dispensaries in Aspen sold more than $8.3 million worth of medical and recreational pot during 2015, according to statistics from the city’s Finance Department.
“That’s an incredible number,” said Aspen Assistant Police Chief Bill Linn. “That’s impressive.”
The exact amount of $8,347,557 in marijuana sales in the city translated to $200,341 in sales tax funneling into city coffers during 2015, according to the statistics.

Ron Paul in Classic 1999 Speech to Congress: "What about the unintended consequence of supporting Osama bin Laden!! How absurd can it get??"

In this classic speech given on 5/6/1999 from the floor of Congress which aired on C-SPAN, Congressman Ron Paul (R, TX) was opposing a Fiscal Year 1999 Supplemental Spending Appropriations Bill. He begins by talking about Congressional funding of undeclared wars and then Congress wanting to micromanage the conflicts, and then gets into bin Laden. Keep in mind this was two years and four months before 9/11/2001. "You talk about unintended consequences! They're so numerous! What about the unintended consequence of supporting the KLA, who's supported by Osama bin Laden!! How absurd can it get?? You know, Osama bin Laden was our good friend because he was a freedom fighter in Afghanistan and we gave him our weapons. And supported him," an outraged dark-haired Ron Paul said, before walking off the podium in disgust.

Thanks To The Republican Civil War, Every Scenario Ends With Hillary Clinton Winning The Election

What is the worst possible outcome for the presidential election of 2016? Assuming that an election will actually take place, that is an easy question to answer – Hillary Rodham Clinton as the next president of the United States. She is truly evil in every sense of the word, and the implications of what four (or eight) years of Hillary would mean for our nation are almost too terrible to imagine. That is why it is so depressing watching what is happening to the Republican Party right now. The civil war in the Republican Party is ripping it to shreds, and as a result of all this warfare every plausible scenario for what will happen the rest of the way ends with Hillary Clinton winning the 2016 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one scenario that keeps Hillary from the White House. And that is Republican voters tossing the GOP "leadership" into the trash bin and deciding for themselves how they will select a candidate and vote them into office.

FLASHBACK 1991 - Trump Strikes Out Would-be Mugger

When he saw "a big guy with a big bat" bashing another fellow, Donald Trump did what any self-respecting billionaire would do: He ordered his driver to pull over.

"I'm not looking to play this thing up," Trump said yesterday. "I'm surprised you found out about it."

Witnesses said Trump, with Marla Maples tugging at his arm to try to stop him, leaped from his black stretch limousine Monday evening during the Manhattan assault.

"Someone in the car looked over and said, 'Gee, look at that, it's a mugging,' " Trump said. "I said to my driver to stop the car because it was brutal-looking."

Trump was at first reluctant to discuss his daredevil deed, but then he warmed to the task.

"The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, "Look, you've gotta stop this. Put down the bat,"' Trump said. "I guess he recognized me because he said, 'Mr. Trump, I didn't do anything wrong.' I said, 'How could you not do anything wrong when you're whacking a guy with a bat?' Then he ran away."

Iran Billionaire to Appeal Death Sentence in Oil Fraud Case

“The sentence is not final and there is room to dispute it,” Rasoul Kouhpayezadeh told the Iranian Students News Agency on Sunday. “We will for sure appeal.”

Zanjani, who has denied all wrongdoing, was accused of embezzling $2.7 billion from the state-run National Iranian Oil Co. during transactions intended to circumvent international sanctions on crude exports, according to state-run media. Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said in 2014 that Zanjani used the Tajikistan branch of his own bank, First Islamic Investment Bank, to funnel the money out of Iran.

After (*Saturday) Night, Is There Any Way Realistically That Trump Doesn’t Win Florida?

After last night, is there any way realistically that Trump doesn’t win Florida?

Seeing a lot of buzz this morning that Trump underperformed last night and therefore it’s a whole new ballgame in Florida and Ohio. It may indeed be a whole new ballgame — but not the way you think. Because the dirty little secret of last night’s results is that Trump didn’t underperform. Behold:

Trump finished very close to where he was projected to finish in all four elections. The reason he “underperformed,” winning just two of the four states up for grabs, is because Ted Cruz overperformed dramatically. And the reason Cruz overperformed is starkly clear in Cohn’s graph, namely, a broad chunk of Rubio’s support collapsed out from under him and shifted to Cruz.>>>

Syria: Phantom “Rebels” Return from the Dead

By Tony Cartalucci

The French colonial green, white, and black banner of Syria adapted by the West’s proxy “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) had long been forgotten in the sea of black banners held aloft by Washington and Riyadh’s more extreme ploy to gain leverage upon and more direct access to the battlefield.

However, as Syrian forces backed by its regional allies and Russian airpower overwhelm these forces while building alliances with other factions, including the Kurds, the West’s entire regime change enterprise faces ignominious collapse.

It appears that – having exhausted all other options – the West has decided to change as many of those black banners back to the “rebel” green, white, and black as possible, before the conflict draws to a close, giving the West the most favorable position achievable ahead of “peace talks.”...

Mushroom Beehives Could Be The Solution To Colony Collapse

By Amanda Froelich

Life without bees isn’t life at all. Seriously, have you considered just how empty supermarkets would be if the tiny, bumbling insects went extinct?

Since the 1980s, bee populations have diminished dramatically. At least 61 culprits – from viruses to pesticides – have been blamed, but scientists are still groping for answers.

One culprit in particular – the mite – is thought to be a major contributor to colony collapse. Because the varroa destructor mite’s life is so short-lived, it has been able to evolve and develop resistance to pesticides that have been previously able to control it.

Thankfully, a solution to the catastrophe may already exist. It just took a mushroom expert and a scientist to discover it...

The 2012 Republican Party convention in Tampa, designed to sell a filtered image of a country club version of conservatism, begs the historic substance of a traditional embodiment of true timeless values. Hitting a range of obligatory themes is not equivalent to standing for the principles of a constitutional republic.

Oil producers’ moves to stabilize markets will fail

The world's top oil producers Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed on 16 February to freeze oil output at January levels in a bid to stabilize an oversupplied market.>>>

“The most difficult for that agreement would be Iran and Iraq,” says oil analyst Richard Mallinson of Energy Aspects Limited.

“Iran is one of the few OPEC countries not currently producing at its full capacity. As recently as January it received relief from western sanctions because of the nuclear deal, and so it is now hoping to increase its production and exports,” he says.

“But if it were to agree to a freeze in production, it would lose out. It would not able to increase its production, while Saudi Arabia, Russia, and other countries that are already at higher levels would maintain. So they wouldn't actually remove any oil from the market, it would only really be Iran that would be giving up.”

Iran may not agree, but is it open to negotiations?

“Iran will negotiate, because having oil prices this low is not good for anyone, except if you are a country that is importing oil,”>>>

Is Marco Rubio the Great GOP Hope, or Dope?

If the recent “Super Saturday” elections are a sign, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is in deep trouble.

To be sure, a victory in Florida on March 15 would give him momentum, but the Catch-22 is that it’s hard to win Florida without momentum (his Sunday win in Puerto Rico was fine but isn’t exactly a big mo-shifter). And if Rubio loses his home state, which is entirely possible, not only would it spell doom for his presidential chances, it would also serve as a major embarrassment.

Rubio’s chances seem increasingly slim.

The letter, first obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, contains a spreadsheet detailing nearly 3,500 “excessive, prohibited, and impermissible contributions” collected by Sanders in January. Hundreds of donors listed foreign addresses, while thousands of others ran over the $2,700 limit for individual contributions.

U.S. Investors Miss Iran Deals Worth Billions

U.S. investors are at risk of getting shut out of deals in Iran while their European competitors get a head start on billions of dollars in opportunities unlocked by the lifting of international sanctions, according to Greylock Capital Management.

“It seems like the U.S. might miss this opportunity because the Europeans are going to move regardless,” Hans Humes, Greylock’s chief executive officer and chairman who traveled to Iran in June, said in an interview in Mexico City. “It almost doesn’t matter what the U.S. does because once it starts opening up to Europe I think the economy in Iran will start to move.”

Iran Billionaire Sentenced to Death in Oil Fund Fraud Case

*** Zanjani guilty of funneling money out of Iran during sanctions
Analyst says Iran wants to show that it is tackling corruption

Iranian businessman Babak Zanjani was sentenced to death after being found guilty in a fraud case involving an oil fund, the state-run Iranian Students’ News Agency reported on Sunday, citing a judicial official.

The court found enough evidence to convict Zanjani and two other people, who were also sentenced to death, said Gholam Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, a spokesman for Iran’s judiciary. They were also ordered to repay a quarter of the money they laundered, according to the report. Zanjani can appeal the verdict.

Zanjani, who has denied all wrongdoing, was accused of embezzling $2.7 billion from the state-run National Iranian Oil Co.>>>

Should Hillary Face War Crimes Charges Over Libya?

Will Hillary Clinton be indicted for storing classified materials on an unsecure server in her house while Secretary of State? Will President Obama call off the Justice Department and risk making it look like there is a different set of laws for the elites? Or will he allow the investigation to continue and risk the Democrat Party frontrunner in the presidential race facing jail time. The issue is more a political one at this point. But, as Ron Paul says in today’s Liberty Report, why isn’t Hillary facing prosecution for war crimes over her role in the Libya debacle?

By Matt Agorist

One thing in US history is consistent throughout every single election cycle — allegations of voter fraud. These allegations, however, are not the ramblings of a kook with tinfoil wrapped around his head, they are substantiated and reach as high as the Supreme Court. Don’t believe it? Ask Al Gore and George W. Bush.

If you think that the ruling class would leave it up to the voters to decide who gets elected, you should think again. Every single candidate who actually challenges the status quo becomes a target...

REPORT: Ted Cruz Entered US Illegally in 1974

There are two apparent contradictions regarding how and when Ted Cruz obtained US citizenship.

First, according to the Canadian Citizenship Act of 1946, also referred to as the “Act of 1947,” Canada did not allow dual citizenship in 1970. The parents would have had to choose at that time between U.S. and Canadian citizenship. Ted Cruz did not renounce his Canadian citizenship until 2014. Was that the choice originally made?

Second, no CRBA has been released that would verify that Ted Cruz was registered as a U.S. citizen at birth.

It has been reported that the then nearly four-year-old Ted Cruz flew to the U.S. from Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1974.

Ted Cruz could not have entered the U.S. legally without a CRBA or a U.S. passport, the latter of which was not obtained until 1986.

And in 2005, Glenn Beck threatened to kill filmmaker Michael Moore. Beck began, "I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, ya know? And I could just be choking the life out of him.

US to send nuclear-capable B-52 warplanes to bomb ISIS as military ups campaign to eradicate terrorists in Syria and Iraq

The United States is set to send nuclear-capable B-52 warplanes to bomb ISIS.

The warplanes will start attacking terrorist targets in Syria and Iraq in April as they replace B-1s that have returned to the US for updates.

It is not clear how many of the mammoth B-52s and airmen will take part in the deployment, that could see the bombers based at an American airbase in Qatar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even without nuclear weapons, B-52s are used for carpet-bombing large swaths of territory. They are not precision weapons used to kill individuals or small groups, but behemoths that lay waste to entire cities.

‘Efficient, accurate’: Russian air warfare in Syria praised in classified NATO report

The Russian task force in Syria has demonstrated remarkable efficiency and professionalism, according to a German magazine citing confidential NATO analysis.

The limited Russian contingent operating in Syria is outperforming the more widespread groupings of the US-led anti-Islamic State coalition, according to Germany’s FOCUS media outlet who came by the classified NATO document, which was prepared by the alliance’s military experts.

The document points out that Russia deployed 40 warplanes, performing some 75 sorties a day (until the ceasefire came into effect on February 27). The airstrikes, usually delivered on several targets during each combat flight, are “accurate and efficient,” the analysis reportedly says.

EU’s refusal to accept Ukraine exposes Kiev’s deceit of its own people, says Russian MP

The Ukrainian people remain hostage to the deceitful Kiev regime, but no one is ready to welcome them into Europe, the head of the State Duma’s Committee for Security and Countering Corruption, Irina Yarovaya, has told reporters.

The comments came soon after the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said in a speech in The Hague that he does not expect Ukraine to join the European Union or NATO in the nearest 20 or even 25 years.

“Ukraine will definitely not be able to become a member of the EU in the next 20-25 years, and not of NATO either,” Juncker said, as quoted by German news agency DPA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another major US foreign policy disaster! The whole point of the US-backed coup was to block Ukraine from merging with Russia and drag them into the European union.

Ginger over chemo: This powerful root can eliminate 10,000x the number of cancer cells

The facts from Georgia State

Ever since inflammation was proven to contribute to the on-set and development of the majority of diseases, researchers have been investigating plants that are rich in antioxidants in order to ascertain their effectiveness in both curing and preventing of sickness. Turmeric was among the first ones on the list and its impact in various types of cancer, as well as a swarm of other diseases, is now undeniable. Ginger is a close relative of turmeric, so scientists thought it might be a good idea to take a closer look at its healing properties. Georgia State University did just that in a trial that involved prostate cancer in mice.

What the scientists found out was awe-inspiring. The mice experienced a reduction in the size of prostate tumors by as much as 56% when taking 6-shoagoal, a pungent compound in ginger that is produced when the root is dried or cooked. By comparison to the treatment of control subjects, ginger proved to be a staggering 10,000x stronger. But the good news doesn't stop here. Particularly when it comes to prostate cancer, this root helps patients avoid death, unlike the chemotherapy that promotes a weakened immune system and even the metastasis of cancer.

Murder Is Washington’s Foreign Policy — Paul Craig Roberts

Washington has a long history of massacring people, for example, the destruction of the Plains Indians by the Union war criminals Sherman and Sheridan and the atomic bombs dropped on Japanese civilian populations, but Washington has progressed from periodic massacres to fulltime massacring. From the Clinton regime forward, massacre of civilians has become a defining characteristic of the United States of America.

Washington is responsible for the destruction of Yugoslavia and Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and part of Syria. Washington has enabled Saudi Arabia’s attack on Yemen, Ukraine’s attack on its former Russian provinces, and Israel’s destruction of Palestine and the Palestinian people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid coming up, I never, for a single moment, thought that the United States of America I loved would, in the 21st century, morph, geopolitically, into the United States of Carnage.

But unfortunately, globally, that is precisely where we are, with only one party at its helm; the war party, capitalising brilliantly on all of the mayhem it creates.

But there is a point where all financial gain like this becomes a Pyrrhic victory, and that is when a country gets destroyed by its own war lust and desire for destruction; in the Hindu scriptures, such an event is called Karma, and in Christian literature, is described in a phrase attributed to Jesus: "Thant which ye sow, ye shall also reap."

And right now, US foreign policy, collectively, is reaping ....the whirlwind, and there will be some very real consequences for what the US government has done around the world.

As a Christian pacifist activist, I abhor violence, and never advocate it; but as a realistic human being, I understand the factors which can generate it.

Washington Post BEX Alert - Things we learned from 50,000-plus pages of Clinton emails

Clinton hardly comes across as a technological whiz.

At one point, she asks her communications adviser how to charge her iPad and update an app. Asked if she has wireless Internet, the secretary replies: “I don’t know if I have wi-fi. How do I find out?”

Clinton tells another aide that she is “never sure which of my emails you receive, so pls let me know if you receive this one and on which address you did.”

In her final year on the job, she apologizes to someone for being slow to respond to an email, describing her BlackBerry as having “a nervous breakdown on my dime!”

Technological problems included the State Department’s unclassified email system, too.

The department’s technology is “so antiquated that NO ONE uses a State-issued laptop and even high officials routinely end up using their home email accounts to be able to get their work done quickly and effectively,” policy chief Anne-Marie Slaughter laments in 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Washington Post is trying to prop up Hillary with the "Okay, she's an idiot about computers, but that doesn't mean she should not be President" defense. The Washington Post also seems to forget that ALL State Department emails are classified by default.

Setting that aside...

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

Killing Someone Else’s Beloved

Trump’s pledge to murder the civilian relatives of terrorists could be considered quite modest — and, in its bluntness, refreshingly candid — when compared to President Obama’s ongoing policy of loosing drones and U.S. Special Operations forces in the Greater Middle East. Those policies, the assassinations that go with them, and the “collateral damage” they regularly cause are based on one premise when it comes to the American public: that we will permanently suspend our capacity for grief and empathy when it comes to the dead (and the living) in distant countries.

Fantasy and fairy tales can go only so far when it comes to the true condition of anything or anyone. Sooner or later the truth must out. This is very much the case when looking at the true condition of the nation the Chinese call, The Hegemon, the not-anymore-so-United States of America. The official Obama Administration economic statistics have declared to the world for more than six years that the world’s largest paper economy was in a marvelous recovery and that unemployment was a mere 5%. Now, with the most severe collapse of oil prices in 13 years, the last remaining job-creating sector of the economy, the oil and gas industry, is rapidly becoming the domino that threatens to topple a mountain of dicey credits and threaten many banks.

On one side are many of the world’s governments, central banks, fintech firms, banks, credit card companies, telecommunication behemoths, financial institutions, large retailers, etc. According to them, the days of physical currency are numbered, so why not pull the plug already, beginning with the largest denomination bills such as the $100-note and particularly the €500-note?

On the other side are people who like to use cash – most of whom, according to the dominant official narrative, are either criminals or terrorists.

Morgan Stanley Set To Pay $3.2 Billion For 2008 Financial Collapse, Only 2% Of What They Borrowed

Morgan Stanley’s settlement for $3.2 billion pales in comparison to what they borrowed.

While some may claim that the settlements made with big banks in recent years are better than nothing or are significant amounts, no matter how much that bank borrowed in 2008-2009, to say that these settlements are minuscule at best is an understatement. Last month, Morgan Stanley, one of the largest investment banks in the world and biggest borrowers in the 2008 financial crisis, agreed to pay $3.2 billion in a settlement with federal authorities.

Denmark to send troops to Syria

People Do Not Die Of Cancer! People Die Of Chemotherapy And In Terrible Pain

Dr. Hardin B. Jones focused his studies on the issues related to cancer for more than two decades. His findings, eventually, brought some shocking conclusion.

He suggests that the only objective of the cancer industry is profit, which is shared among Big Pharma, doctors, healthcare facilities and other participants in this industry. Therefore, whenever some patient accepts to practice regular cancer treatment, this whole industry profits.

Colorado delegates split evenly after Bernie Sanders defeats Hillary Clinton

Winning a Super Tuesday state by 19 points seems like it would matter, but Sen. Bernie Sanders’ victory in Colorado didn’t earn him more delegates than Hillary Clinton. In fact, she may end up with an even greater amount, despite a big loss at the polls.

Of the 78 delegates up for grabs in Colorado, Sanders won 38. And so did Clinton. How can that be? It’s not that 59 to 40 percent is counted as a tie in The Centennial State, but rather, has something to do with something called a superdelegate.
