VIDEO: CHARLOTTE AGITATORS THROW ROCKS OFF HIGHWAY OVERPASS, STRIKE MOTORISTS

They ooed and awed as they could be heard striking several passing vehicles.

“We’re people trying to get home. We haven’t done anything wrong. I fear if we would have had to stop, they would have done something else,” one motorist said outside a hospital emergency room entrance.

WSOC’s Mark Barber reports the woman’s windshield was shattered by the agitators.

Forgive me, but how is this supposed to correct the situation of alleged police violence here?!?

The short answer is, it doesn't.

'ARRAY OF THINGS' COLLECTS FACIAL BIOMETRICS AND LICENSE PLATES IMAGES

Argonne Labs and DHS are installing over 500 spying devices called the 'Array of Things' (AoT) throughout Chicago and plan to install them in cities across the country. Plans are in the works to replicate the project in the coming years in more than a dozen other cities.

Two cameras mounted in each AoT box will collect data on vehicle and foot traffic, standing water, sky color and cloud cover. They claim the photos taken by the cameras will automatically be deleted within "tens of minutes."

Should we trust them?

The AoT bears a striking resemblance to CCTV's or 'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments ' otherwise known as VACCINE.

Please, read my four part series where I explain, how the government turned public and private CCTV cameras into a nationwide surveillance system.

Feds admit they'll use the internet of things to spy on everyone

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These actions are not to make We the People more safe.

These are the paranoid, terrified actions of a government which is out of control; knows that the people no longer trust a thing they say, and realize that people understand that the US government has simply become "the enforcers" of violence and military might with which to protect the one percenters, globally.

There is nothing the government can get from surveilling me than they don't already know, primarily from this website.

I am a Christian pacifist activist, who exhorts her government to achieve their geopolitical goals through hard won, good faith negotiations, rather than war.

I care very much that our military is treated with extreme respect, and as Veterans, that they get the same, top-tier medical care Dick Cheney receives; THEY HAVE EARNED IT.

And as much as I abhor war as a solution to the country's geopolitical disputes, when conflict comes, I want our military to have the best weapons possible. I just want this country to have absolutely exhausted every other means of conflict resolution possible before war happens.

When it comes to logic and good faith negotiations, the US government has absolutely lost its edge here, and gone down "the dark side", a problem to which I bear witness, peacefully, at this blog.

OK, US government, do you have it, now?!?

Terrified yet?!?!? :-)

The DEA's Own Website Proves The War On Drugs Is An Epic Failure

This summer, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) demonstrated its incompetence and exposed its archaic ideology on more than one occasion.

First, in defiance of public opinion, the agency announced it would continue to classify cannabis as a Schedule I drug, meaning the plant will continue to be categorized as one of the most “dangerous” drugs in America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The War on Drugs is actually a war on the competitions' drugs, and the reason DEA wants to ban marijuana is to keep the alcohol and tobacco companies profitable.

Now You Can Find Out If YOUR Doctor Is Being Bribed by Big Pharma

Pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars to influence, “educate,” and entertain doctors around the world.1

According to ProPublica’s “Dollars for Docs” website, which you can use to find out if your doctor accepts money from the drug industry, 1,630 companies have made payments to more than 681,000 doctors, totaling more than $3.5 billion.2

You can also find out if your doctor receives payments from Big Pharma by visiting OpenPaymentsData.CMS.gov. This site has tallied nearly $6.5 billion in payments since 2013.3

Drug companies have long tried to influence doctors’ prescribing habits by paying them for research activities, speaking and other “consulting,” or offering gifts of free meals and travel. However, it hasn’t always been possible to find out what gifts your own doctor might be accepting.

The US road map to balkanize Syria

The definitive proof of the Empire of Chaos’s real agenda in Syria may be found in a 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document declassified in May last year.

As you scroll down the document, you will find page 291, section C, which reads (in caps, originally):

“THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY [WHO] SUPPORT THE [SYRIAN] OPPOSITION… THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME, WHICH IS CONSIDERED THE STRATEGIC DEPTH OF THE SHIA EXPANSION (IRAQ AND IRAN)”.

Syria - The Aid Convoy Attack Points To Further Escalation

U.S. Secretary of State first claimed that the Syrian did it, than that the Russians did it; helicopters had attacked. The Pentagon then came up with two Russian SU-24 fixed wing aircraft as the culprits. But the U.S. then claimed that the attack went on over two hours which is longer than a pair of SU-24 could sustain.

The Russians said neither they nor the Syrians attacked. They alleged that "rebels" attacked the convoy; that there had been no bombs, only damage from fire.

Sep 22 08:42

Russia asks for formal UN investigation of convoy attack.

On September 19, a humanitarian convoy consisting of 31 trucks was attacked while heading to Aleppo. According to the Red Cross, 20 civilians and one aid worker died as a result. Initial reports by the organization claimed the convoy had been targeted by an airstrike.

On Tuesday, the UN backtracked on its earlier claims that the convoy was hit by military planes.

"We are not in a position to determine whether these were in fact airstrikes. We are in a position to say that the convoy was attacked," UN humanitarian spokesman Jens Laerke said.

Rogue Mission: Did the Pentagon Bomb Syrian Army to Kill Ceasefire Deal?

A rift between the Pentagon and the White House turned into open rebellion on Saturday when two US F-16s and two A-10 warplanes bombed Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions at Deir al-Zor killing at least 62 Syrian regulars and wounding 100 others. The US has officially taken responsibility for the incident which it called a “mistake”, but the timing of the massacre has increased speculation that the attack was a desperate, eleventh-hour attempt to derail the fragile ceasefire and avoid parts of the implementation agreement that Pentagon leaders publicly opposed.

Media Ask Which Candidate Can Better Exploit Our Irrational Fear Of Terrorism

The media’s tendency to focus on horserace issues—who’s up and who’s down, what the cosmetics are of an event rather than the substance—is routinely derided by media critics, and mocking it has become something of an election year tradition. But one 2016 topic in particular, terrorism, has become the hot horserace topic of the year in a way that goes beyond the silly to the potentially damaging:

Scandal-hit US bank Wells Fargo is fined by regulators and humiliated by senators

The venerable Wells Fargo bank has been hit by a record fine from regulators, while its chief executive was humiliated by the Senate this week. It has been a bad summer for the $231bn (£176bn) bank that calls itself a "community-based financial services company".

Why was the head of Wells Fargo bank called 'gutless' in the US Senate this week?

Wells Fargo chief executive John Stumpf appeared before the Senate banking committee on Tuesday (20 September) to account for his firm's handling of its bogus accounts scandal that led to it being fined a record $185m (£142m) earlier this month and accused of "widespread illegal practice" by regulators.

‘White Helmets’ — pawns for U.S. militarism

War propaganda is always more insidious on the home front, but it is an essential ingredient of imperialist wars. Charging the enemy with genocide, baby killing, mass rapes, mass graves and weapons of mass destruction have all been debunked after a U.S. war. But they saturate the media before a war and seem indisputable.

46 Days Before Election, Federal Judge Just Gave Hillary the Worst Possible News!

Federal Judge Richard Leon just ruled the State Department must turnover hundreds of hidden documents before Monday which detail Hillary Clinton’s security training during her time as President Obama’s Secretary of State.

The State Department attempted to dismiss a lawsuit filed as part of a Freedom of Information Act request from the Daily Caller News Foundation, which seeks to confirm Hillary and her team took part in required, yearly trainings on how to properly handle classified intelligence. But the judge ruled against Hillary and the Obama administration.

Back on the campaign trail after her September 11th health collapse, this is the worst possible news Hillary Clinton could hear:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary insisted to the FBI that she didn't recall any classes about the proper care of classified documents. This was her version of the "I didn't know any better" excuse. And it was bogus from the start because you don't get your clearance and access to the documents until you complete the course.

If the documents confirm that she and her aides did take those courses, then it means Hillary lied, or her memory is totally shot; either of which means she is not qualified to be President.

'Peace president’ Obama takes parting shot at Russia in UN finale

Listening to Barack Obama’s final speech in the UN General Assembly proved that American speechwriters are heavily dependent on specific literary devices to plead their case, like irony, hypocrisy and total farce.

Barack Hussein Obama, who sailed into the White House on wings of hope and glory eight brief years ago, bagging a Nobel Peace Prize less than a year in office without negotiating a single peace deal, leaves behind a smoldering, rubble-strewn legacy more befitting of a neoconservative warlord than a supposed Democratic progressive.

ATTACK ON AID CONVOY KILLS TWENTY, DESTROYS AID - AND OBLITERATES US WAR CRIMES?

“We have studied video footage from the scene from so-called ‘activists’ in detail and did not find any evidence that the convoy had been struck by ordnance”, commented Igor Konashenkov, a Ministry spokesman.

“There are no craters and the exterior of the vehicles do not have the kind of damage consistent with blasts caused by bombs dropped from the air.” His observations are hard to challenge, anyone who has studied the assaults of the “international community” on far away countries over the last decades knows what a bombed truck looks like - what fragments remains of it.

Photographs of the affected lorries show burned out vehicles, metal skeleton intact.

Konashenkov said that damage visible in footage was instead the result of cargo igniting - “oddly” occurring at the same time as militants (formerly Nusra Front) had started a big offensive in nearby Aleppo, backed by tanks, artillery and other heavy equipment.

UN fears third leg of the global financial crisis - with prospect of epic debt defaults

The third leg of the world's intractable depression is yet to come. If trade economists at the United Nations are right, the next traumatic episode may entail the greatest debt jubilee in history.

It may also prove to be the definitive crisis of globalized capitalism, the demise of the liberal free-market orthodoxies promoted for almost forty years by the Bretton Woods institutions, the OECD, and the Davos fraternity.

"Alarm bells have been ringing over the explosion of corporate debt levels in emerging economies, which now exceed $25 trillion. Damaging deflationary spirals cannot be ruled out," said the annual report of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

Syria, Russia refutes claims of targeting humanitarian aid convoy in Aleppo countryside

A military source refuted the reports circulated by malicious media outlets about the Syrian Arab Army targeting a humanitarian aid convoy in Aleppo countryside.

The source told SANA that there’s no truth to the rumors circulated during the past few hours by some media outlets about the Syrian Arab Army targeting a humanitarian aid convoy in Orkem village in Aleppo’s northern countryside.

Russian Defense Ministry: Russian and Syrian air forces did not target any humanitarian aid convoys in Aleppo

Spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov asserted that neither the Russian Aerospace Forces nor the Syrian Air Force targeted any UN humanitarian aid convoys southwest of Aleppo.

Konashenkov stressed that video recordings don’t show any indication that the humanitarian convoy in question was hit by shells.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Then there is the question of motive. Neither Syria nor Russia have a reason to hit the humanitarian convoy. In contrast, Washington DC needed a distraction from their attack on Syrian forces; a means to go on the propaganda offensive and accuse Russia and Syria of being the bad guys.

Deir ez-Zor bombings: What is US’ actual goal in Syria?

Mother Agnes Mariam, a nominee for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize from Homs diocese, has some harsh words for the US war against Syria: “Shame on a coalition who pretends fighting ISIS while in reality is helping ISIS killing innocent soldiers whose mission is to protect civilians.”

This is in response to the September 17 US airstrikes in Deir ez-Zor that massacred 62 Syrian soldiers and injured 100 more who have been fighting ISIS.[1] According to a June 2015 Time magazine article, Deir ez-Zor with a population of 228,000 has been under siege by ISIS the past years, relying on the nightly arrival of a large Syrian air-force-operated cargo plane which has a payload of more than 46 tons and transports munitions, food and medical supplies.

This much needed aid is flown out from the military air base southeast of the city, the target of ISIS the past years and now bombed by US jet fighters.

UN's “New Urban Agenda” to Assault Liberty in a City Near You

With its “New Urban Agenda” set to be formally adopted by dictators and member governments next month, the United Nations is plotting its latest monumental assault on private property, the free enterprise system, national sovereignty, and human liberty. Taken as a whole, the UN's radical new plan outlines a vision of an Orwellian world order of centrally planned, “compact” mega-cities run and guided by UN dictates and under total surveillance. Despite all the nice-sounding rhetoric about “equality” and “prosperity,” the text of the document also demands policies that have been repeatedly proven to cause misery, inequality, poverty, and death.

Assad Interview: US Airstrikes on Syrian Troops Not a Mistake, “You Cannot Commit a Mistake for One Hour”

Assad, who we used to get told was an inhumane monster who is hurting his people but whom we are told nothing about anymore, makes a good point. If the US accidentally attacked Syrian troops (for an hour), how did ISIS know the "accidental" attack was coming?

By the time these strikes were reported on here in the US, we Americans were told they are a "mistake" and it was all just a big fat regrettable accident.

However, America can't have it both ways. We can't be told how exceptional and amazing our military is, how all strikes are done with "surgical precision," then get told "whoopsies!" on something like this...

False Flag? US-NATO-Rebel Coalition Appear to Have Fabricated UN Convoy Evidence

We know this? It’s not explained how. It sounds like the model of aircraft isn’t known, nor whose they were, just that they were present, in the air, and not ours. But another unnamed official said “two Russian SU-24 attack aircraft were in the sky above the convoy at the precise moment it was hit in Urum al-Kubra.” (BBC) This sounds like a radar finding, but it could be just empty words also. The official also noted the strike “was too sophisticated to have been carried out by the Syrian army.” Is it really excess sophistication? Or just that they just want to blame Russia specifically at this time?

Trump: Clinton Is Chief Emissary For Globalism

US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has censured his democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, as “the chief emissary for globalism”, accusing her of attributing more significance to so-called special interests than what is best for the country.

“Hillary Clinton is the chief emissary for globalism and I’m not running to be president of the world, I’m running to be president of the United States,” Trump said during a campaign rally in the US state of North Carolina on Tuesday.

"Deutsche Bank May Ultimately Need A State Bailout" - Handelsblatt

While the most recent set of troubles plaguing Deutsche Bank have been duly documented here, most recently yesterday when the stock price tumbled once again just shy of all time lows over fears the bank's multi-billion DOJ settlement could severely impact its liquidity and/or solvency, this may be the first time we have heard the "n"-word tossed around in an official German publication: as Germany's top financial newspaper, Handelsblatt said, "German financial officials reacted with shock and dismay to the leaking of a U.S. government demand for a $14 billion fine against Deutsche Bank, which may ultimately need a state bailout to pay the bill."

Confessions of a Hillary Insider

I am shocked at the audacity of Hillary Clinton to decry Donald Trump as a birther because her campaign not only pushed that item in a bid to discredit Barack Obama, but mounted a sustained campaign attack Obama on a broad array of issues. How do I know? I was part of that effort and was in regular email and phone coordination with Sidney Blumenthal. Sidney was the conduit who fed damaging material to me that I subsequently posted on my blog.

In some cases Sid Blumenthal actually provided a draft piece that I would slightly modify and publish under my name. Most of the time, however, Sid provided background information and researched material that I would use to craft pieces. How many? I am providing the links to 63 blog articles that I posted (and in one case was posted by Susan Hudgens, who assisted with the blog) between January 2008 and June 30, 2008.

Here is simple summary of material (in writing or through a verbal briefing) that I received from Sid!

THE CLINTON FOUNDATION IS REPORTEDLY LAYING OFF DOZENS OF PEOPLE

Of the two New Yorkers running for president, only Donald Trump’s family foundation is being investigated by the state attorney general for potential illegal activity. But it is the Clinton Foundation that is beginning to fall apart amid the nonstop coverage of both charities in the press. While Bill Clinton prepares for what is expected to be an impassioned defense of their philanthropic efforts, which have been at the center of accusations that the Clintons used their foundation to sell access while Hillary Clinton led the State Department, Politico reports that the Clinton Global Initiative is preparing to lay off dozens of staffers.

Obama ditches diplomacy, attacks Trump at U.N.

There wasn’t much diplomatic about it: President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon repeatedly denounced Donald Trump and his brand of politics here as they addressed leaders from around the world Tuesday.
Three days after declaring that Trump’s candidacy is a threat to American democracy, Obama said that while globalization has its downsides, the wrong response comes “more often from the right” to produce an “aggressive nationalism, a crude populism…which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.”

He didn’t say Trump’s name. He didn’t say Make America Great Again. But he didn’t need to, as he quickly moved into attacking the Republican nominee’s proposed Mexican border wall.

“Today a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself,” Obama said.
Obama received significant applause from the filled room as he finished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Barak Hussein Obama: sir, the American people have grown tired of, and angry at, a system which collectively puts middle class Americans at the proverbial "back of the bus."

We are tired of an Administration which lies so consistently - about everything - that you and your minions have completely lost the trust of the American people.

Your Department of Labor Statistic's numbers on unemployment (5%, I believe, is the current fiction) are a complete lie, because they do not factor in the 90 + million Americans who have been "out of a job for too long to count, or have given up looking."

Poverty, under your watch, has broken a 50 year record:

That’s rich: Poverty level under Obama breaks 50-year record

3 million more kids have fallen into poverty under your watch:

Report: 3 million more children in poverty under Obama, 22% of all kids

The use of food stamps by desperate Americans has risen 70% under your administration:

Food stamp president: Enrollment up 70 percent under Obama

The outsourcing/offshoring of American jobs continues apace:

28 STATISTICS ABOUT GUTTING OF U.S. ECONOMY THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND

Of course, your Corporate Globalist Masters are, generally, very happy with you; you've delivered what you promised them on this issue of offshoring/outsourcing, and
the gutting of the American middle class is pretty much on schedule.

The wars you promised to close out in your 2008 campaign continue to fester, and you've chosen some new wars to start as well.

We are still hopelessly mired in Afghanistan and Iraq, yet you have chosen new wars in Yemen (you remember; the proxy war using Saudi Arabian military, where US supplied white phosphorous has killed civilians, right?!?) and Syria, and you are threatening wars against North Korea, China, and Russia.

When it comes to real, hard-won geopolitical negotiations though which the Us government should be achieving its goals, you, unfortunately, have been a rather dull instrument, despite your "teleprompter eloquence".

You have been a great President for the globalist one percenters; but generally lousy, sir, for the rest of us.

And one of the greatest demonstrations of this is your dogged persistence to get Congress to sign off on the TPP during the "lame duck" period later this year.. There are so many things wrong with it, that I cannot begin to articulate them, but the following is a reasonable summation:

Secret TPP Text Unveiled: It’s Worse than We Thought

Simply put, it will allow more offshoring of American jobs; have Americans fighting countries in which similar jobs pay 65 cents an hour; allow corporations to use slave labor, against which American labor cannot possibly complete; and have global corporations' policies supersede American laws in disputes.

The hard reality is, Mr. President: globalism works only for the huge corporations, and the wealthy elites; it does not work for We the People of the United States of America, and we have come to recognise this.

That is why there may well be positive change coming in November; we have had enough, thank you very much, of your faux populism, and your lies.

Oh, and BTW: the Nobel Prize Nominating Committee wants your Nobel Prize BACK!!!

Your TV may use more energy than you think, group charges

An environmental group on Wednesday accused three major TV manufacturers of misleading consumers and regulators about how much energy high-definition screens devour, alleging that the televisions were designed to perform more efficiently during government testing than in ordinary use.

The report by the Natural Resources Defense Council said the TVs made by Samsung, LG Electronics and Vizio saddle households with an extra $120 million in electricity bills each year and generate tons of additional pollution.

None of the manufacturers immediately responded to requests for comment. The NRDC said the companies did not dispute the findings when confronted with them.

Our Terrorists In Colombia: Death Squads As “Freedom Fighters”

White House: Russia to Blame Even If They Didn’t Attack Aid Convoy

Yesterday’s apparently airstrikes against a UN aid convoy, destroying between 18-20 trucks and killing some 14 Red Crescent volunteers took multiple turns today, with the US claiming they believe that a pair of Russian warplanes attacked the convoy, potentially as “revenge” for the American attack on a Syrian military base the day before, which killed 83 soldiers.

The Russians are denying this, of course, but perhaps the even more unusual angle is that White House officials have subsequently come forward to insist that the US holds Russia responsible for what happened to the convoy, even if they didn’t actually do it.

Obama aide Ben Rhodes argued that because Russia had made a commitment to the ceasefire and to getting aid flowing in northern Syria, it was obviously their fault that something happened to the convoy, no matter what that actually was.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's official: both Ben Rhodes and this administration have collectively lost their reality licenses, with this breathtakingly stupid statement!!

Did the US NOT make a commitment to the cease fire, which they destroyed by Saturday's bombing of Syrian military personnel?!?

And why on earth did the US government feel it necessary to keep the terms of the agreement with the Russians secret?!?

And besides, cui bono?!?

Who benefited from the bombing of the aid convoy?!?

NOT Russia, for heaven's sake; and not Syria, certainly.

But the US accusations have absolutely no where to go; Russia has meticulously documented where its personnel and equipment were at the time the convoy got bombed, and it was no where even close to where the convoy got bombed.

When Russia Called to Get US to Stop Syria Strike, US Official Wasn’t There

Weekend US airstrikes against a Syrian army base in Deir Ezzor, a protracted error which killed 83 Syrian soldiers and opened up the base for ISIS to overrun it, carried on longer than it should have, because when Russia made the call to warn the Americans, the guy who was supposed to answer it wasn’t there.

The Russian military called and asked to speak to this “point of contact” official at the coordinating center which is running the US-led bombing campaigns in Syria, and were told he wasn’t available. The Russians called back again and finally got somebody who understood that the US was bombing the wrong target.

The Pentagon dismissed concern about the lapse, saying the contact “wasn’t expecting a call” and therefore didn’t feel obliged to sit next to the phone. Yet as intense US airstrikes were ongoing, in the middle of a US-Russia negotiated ceasefire, it seems like it wasn’t a total shock that a call ended up made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the deliberate absence of the US contact made sure that the bombing could last just long enough to coordinate with ISIS as they rushed in to overtake the area.

Over 100 Education Groups Want To Kick Cops Out Of Schools

Law enforcement officers were regularly stationed in 10 percent of schools in 1997. By 2014, school resource officers were stationed in about one-third of schools. Now, two decades since the number of school-based police officers started to explode, a coalition of over 100 education and social justice organizations are calling for a course correction.

The Dignity in Schools Campaign ? a coalition of organizations, parents and students from 27 states ? wants heavily policed campuses to be a thing of the past. It released a set of recommendations on Wednesday to promote alternatives to harsh school discipline and youth criminalization. DSC members plan to present the guidance to lawmakers during congressional briefings later in the day.

The new recommendations are the strongest that DSC member organizations ? groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund ? have ever made collectively on the issue of school policing

“OR WE’LL LOSE THE WHOLE MIDDLE CLASS”: GALLUP CEO

The percentage of Americans who say they are in the middle or upper-middle class has fallen 10 percentage points, from a 61% average between 2000 and 2008 to 51% today.

Ten percent of 250 million adults in the U.S. is 25 million people whose economic lives have crashed.

What the media is missing is that these 25 million people are invisible in the widely reported 4.9% official U.S. unemployment rate.

Let’s say someone has a good middle-class job that pays $65,000 a year. That job goes away in a changing, disrupted world, and his new full-time job pays $14 per hour — or about $28,000 per year. That devastated American remains counted as “full-time employed” because he still has full-time work — although with drastically reduced pay and benefits. He has fallen out of the middle class and is invisible in current reporting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Clifton hasn't received the memo: the absolute destruction American's middle class has not been accidental.

It has been deliberate, because protests nearly always start with middle class workers.

Yemen: Evidence indicates US-made bomb was used in attack on MSF hospital

States – including the USA and UK – must immediately stop supplying weapons that could be used in the Yemen conflict, Amnesty International said, as it confirmed that a US-made bomb was used in the air strike on a Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) hospital on 15 August which killed 11 people and injured 19 others.

According to independent weapons experts consulted by the organization who assessed photographs of a bomb fin taken by a journalist at the site, a US-made precision-guided Paveway-series aerial bomb was used in the attack.

“Any attack on a medical facility in a war zone is an affront to humanity, yet this bombing is sadly just the latest in a grim series of attacks on hospitals and clinics by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition,” said Philip Luther, Research and Advocacy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International.

The one thing that changed my mind was a voice comparison. I want you to go listen to this video clip. Allegedly it's Hillary one day following the 9/11 event. The first 1:08 seconds is Clinton spewing provable lies about Donald Trump to CNNs Anderson Cooper. Her voice is the voice we all can recognize. Hildebeast has a slight grading to her voice. It's very distinctive and annoying. Then compare it to the voice, not a visual, which comes next in that short clip. Allegedly the voice belongs to Hillary Clinton but it does not. Clearly, the voice is much deeper, lacks that slight grading noise and simply isn't her in my humble opinion.

The number of new businesses in the US is collapsing — and that's disastrous news for the economy

FLASHBACK - Iraqi Soldiers Fighting ISIS Bombed by “Errant” U.S. Airstrike

On the front lines of the battle against the Islamic State, suspicion of the United States runs deep. Iraqi fighters say they have all seen the videos purportedly showing U.S. helicopters airdropping weapons to the militants, and many claim they have friends and relatives who have witnessed similar instances of collusion.

“At first we thought it was something fired by Daesh,” said one army solider, his uniform covered in blood from carrying the injured. Daesh is an Arabic term for the Islamic State. “The explosion was very big. We ran. I saw many dead bodies. I saw that one of my friends had lost a leg.”

However, in addition to the death toll, the injured officer also disputed the official version of events. “We were moving forward and Daesh were retreating, when suddenly the bombing took place on the forces that were behind us,” he said. “It was meant to be a secure area.

Guess Who’s About to Get Wet in the Peeing Contest Between Obama and Putin?

A peeing contest is “a game in which participants compete to see who can urinate the highest, the farthest, or the most accurately.”

President Obama and President Putin have been engaging in just such a match for quite some time, but things are beginning to escalate in a very ugly way. The two leaders are blaming one another for two deadly air strikes in Syria, and tempers are rising.

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I wrote about President Obama poking the bear in Syria?

The bear, otherwise known as Russian President Vladimir Putin, is poking back.
