"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." -- Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

Adelson son-in-law orchestrated family's purchase of Las Vegas Review-Journal

The son-in-law of billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson arranged the $140 million purchase of the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Adelson's behalf, sources confirmed Wednesday.

Patrick Dumont, who is listed on the website of Las Vegas Sands Corp. as the company's senior vice president of finance and strategy, put together the deal at the behest of his father-in-law, the chairman and CEO of the casino operator.

Russian intel has certainly played all possible scenarios involving a NATO Turkish army on the Turkish-Syrian border as well as the possibility of Ankara closing the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles for the Russian “Syria Express”. Erdogan may not be foolish enough to offer Russia yet another casus belli. But Moscow is taking no chances.

Russia has placed ships and submarines capable of launching nuclear missiles in case Turkey under the cover of NATO decides to strike out against the Russian position. President Putin has been clear; Russia will use nuclear weapons if necessary if conventional forces are threatened.

Baltimore protesters blocking streets in wake of Freddie Gray mistrial, family calls for peace

Baltimore protesters took to the streets and began blocking traffic after a mistrial was declared in the first case related to Freddie Gray, a young black man who died in police custody last year. Two arrests have been confirmed by police.

The protests come after a judge announced a mistrial for Officer William Porter, the first of six cops to be tried over Gray’s in-custody death. The jury could not unanimously agree on one or more of the charges, and so a new trial must be set if prosecutors want to continue pursuing punishment.

Congress strips out privacy protections from CISA 'security' bill

Under the original CISA legislation, companies would share their users' information with federal government departments once it had been anonymized. The government could then analyze it for online threats, while the companies received legal immunity from prosecution for breaking existing privacy agreements.

But as the bill was amended, the privacy parts of the proposed law have been stripped away. Now companies don't have to anonymize data before handing it over. In addition, the government can use it for surveillance and for activities outside cybercrime. And in addition, companies don't have to report security failings even if they spot them.

US Manufacturing PMI Plunges To Lowest Since 2012 As Factory Orders Collapse To 2009 Lows

Following the collapse in industrial production, it is no surprise that Markit's Manufacturing PMI has plunged to 51.3, its lowest since October 2012. Under the surface it is a disaster with production volume growth the softest since October 2013, and new orders crashed to worst since September 2009. Finally, don't shurg this off, although manufacturing only accounts for around one-tenth of the economy, the Manufacturing PMI exhibits a high correlation of 77% with GDP as industrial activity has an important cyclical impact on other parts of the economy.

While it's impossible to conclusively verify the death toll or who actually conducted the strikes, it does indeed appear that someone "struck oil" (so to speak) in Idlib yesterday and for those wondering what the situation on the ground looks like after the Russians hit terrorist oil convoys, we present the following video with no further comment:

The US Federal Government Finally Admits the War on Drugs is a Failure

Fast forward forty plus years and for anyone who is not making a profit in the global drug trade, the war on drugs looks like one of the greatest human tragedies of all time. Billions of dollars spent, hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of people incarcerated, countless lives and families shattered, higher than ever rates of addiction, billions in foreign military aid spent, and the availability of drugs is higher than ever before.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The War on Drugs was really the War On The Other Guys' Drugs. Remember that it was Reagan's Attorney General, William French Smith, who changed the rules so that CIA could involve themselves with drug traffickers without reporting it to the DEA.

Well, there you have it. $7,500.00 for the transcript of R v Roy Arthur Topham less the Charge to the Jury which would have included another 62 pages raising the cost up a few hundred dollars more. Had I required the transcript in 3 business days the price would have jumped up another $1,500.00 bringing the total to $9,000.00.

It’s no wonder that the little guys and gals who get caught up in the machinery of Canada’s “Just”us system invariably find themselves in a position where it becomes just too cost prohibitive to challenge decisions that could, were they accessible financially, be amenable to positive change.

It is clear that the court that found Topham guilty is doing whatever it can to make it impossible for Topham to pursue a Charter Challenge (Canada's equivalent of a Supreme Court test) to challenge the law under which his freedom of speech was attacked.

To Mr Putin’s admirers in the US, he offers a tantalising view of what it might be like to have a president stymied by neither Congress nor two-term limits — and one who treats the delicate art of diplomacy more like judo than chess. To many of these people, Mr Trump represents the quixotic tsar who will rid Washington of its gridlock, reverse failed foreign policies and end years of perceived economic decline. If he is Trump the Terrible, so much the better.
