.01% criminals CAN’T surrender without admission of killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. Consider Truth & Reconciliation as our best wedge to divide the truly-evil from those ready to reclaim their hearts

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

An Emperor’s New Clothes event is coming. As We the Informed consider strategic options, it’s important for those aware to know:

the .01% criminals who war and poverty-murder annually in the millions, harm billions, and loot trillions will never do anything other than attempt to bullshit their way onward in rogue state empire.

They won’t surrender ever, because they can’t without acknowledging lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, intentional policy of poverty to fear-monger humans into being grateful “at least I have a job,” and only lying through owned and controlled criminally-complicit corporate media.

Scott Adams: Assessing the Risk of Trump

If things are going well for you and your family, you probably don’t want to rock the boat. In that case, Clinton is a good choice for you. But if you are young, or things are not working out well for you and your family, it would be rational to accept higher risk with the hope of getting a bigger/faster improvement.

But how big is the Trump risk to the economy and the country in general? Let’s talk about how Trump has managed risk in the past. That’s the best way to predict how he will do it in the future.

Israel To Get 38 Billion Dollars US Aid Package — Good Idea ?

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 (UPI) — President Barack Obama‘s administration pledged the United States’ largest-ever military aid package to Israel on Wednesday — nearly $40 billion over 10 years.

Philip Giraldi joins today’s Liberty Report to break down the agreement and discuss whether it really does, as Rice claims, benefit US security.

The Philippines’ pivot in action: Can “The Punisher” withstand America’s punishment?

As the Philippines under its popular new President Rodrigo Duterte pivots away from the US, the US is intensifying its media campaign that misrepresents his anti-drugs policy in order to miscast him as a 'dictator'. This looks like the preparation of a hybrid war scenario aimed at overthrowing Duterte's government, which as in Syria could involve the use of Jihadist terrorists.

Russia Calls For “Emergency” UN Security Council Meeting Regarding US Bombing Of Syrian Military

By Brandon Turbeville

After the United States launched an attack against Syrian forces in Deir al-Zour early on Saturday morning, Russia is now calling for an urgent meeting of the United Nations Security Council and an immediate explanation from the United States.

The Americans claim that the bombing was merely a mistake; however, it is hard to make that claim when the two sides were in battle with one another at the time of the airstrikes...

U.S. Attacks Syrian Military, Protects ISIS In Deir al-Zour, Thardeh Mountains

By Brandon Turbeville

If there was ever any doubt that the United States was supporting and protecting the most feared terrorist organization in the world, that doubt is now erased as a result of the recent U.S. strike on Syrian military forces in Deir al-Zour on Saturday.

The attack took place as a battle between the Syrian military and ISIS forces was raging in Deir al-Zour when the United States swooped in with air strikes against Syrian military forces killing “dozens” of Syrian soldiers, allowing ISIS to advance. Some outlets put the death toll as high as 80 while others suggest 62 soldiers were killed...

Hillary’s Sicko Relationship… With the Fed

Hillary Clinton apparently believes that there are four branches of government, not three and that the fourth branch – the Sacred Fed – should never be criticized by any of the other three. It’s OK for President Obama to criticize the Supreme Court during a state-of-the-union address; and for congress and the executive branch to engage in verbal sparring on a daily basis; but no president (let alone a lowly congressman) should ever make a negative comment about the Sacred Fed, according to the Hillary Doctrine.

Report: Hillary Clinton is stealing from her poorest supporters

The liberal news outlet Share Blue, formally Blue Nation Review, owned by the head of the SuperPac Correct the Record which directly coordinates with Hillary’s campaign called for the use of official state organs against Trump in a move eerily reminiscent to third-world crackdowns on dissent.

Report: US Bombed Syrian Army in Support of ISIS

According to the Syrian Army, the United States just bombed one of their positions so ISIS could overrun it.

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria's army general command said warplanes from the U.S.-led coalition bombed a Syrian army position at Jebel Tharda near Deir al-Zor airport on Saturday, paving the way for Islamic State fighters to overun it.

The air strike killed Syrian soldiers and was "conclusive evidence" that the U.S. and its allies support the jihadist group, the Syrian army said in a statement, noting that the strike was "dangerous and blatant aggression".

9/11: 15 Years Of A Transparent Lie — Paul Craig Roberts

There are many conspiracy theories about 9/11. The US government’s own expanation of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory in which a few Saudi Arabians outwitted the American national security state. Little doubt that many of the more imaginative conspiracy theories were created for the purpose of stigmatizing any skepticism, no matter how well reasoned and supported, of the official story.

These groups of qualified and experienced people say that the official story of 9/11 is false.

FBI grilled over handling of Clinton investigation

As lawmakers continued to probe Hillary Clinton’s private email use, the aide who set up the service declined to appear before the House committee. FBI officials had to be given a summons to produce documents on the investigation.

On Tuesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee summoned contractors and former State Department officials who set up and maintained Clinton’s email servers and mobile devices. However, the key Clinton aide, Bryan Pagliano, did not show up for the hearing, pleading Fifth Amendment protections against self-incrimination.

The afternoon before, the committee dressed down FBI’s Acting Assistant Director for Congressional Affairs Jason Herring, who was at pains to explain his absence from a major meeting last week and the bureau’s reluctance to hand over unredacted investigation documents.

Russia says 60 Syrian forces killed in US-led coalition raids on army positions

Russia says 60 Syrian forces have been killed in airstrikes by US-led coalition jets on army positions near Dayr al-Zawr military airport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable; apparently, the US government and military are completely impotent to prevent this from happening, and has zero control over the actions of the alleged "moderate" rebels, who are funded and equipped by the US government.

This is absolutely disgusting, but a perfectly predictable outcome from an American foreign policy on Syria which was obviously hatched through major interaction with either a Ouija board, or a dart board, or BOTH!!

What is wrong with this incident?!? FLIPPING EVERYTHING

US & US-controlled forces haven't fulfilled any Syria ceasefire deal obligations - Russian Army

The US is still reluctant to take measures to force rebels under its control to implement the Syrian ceasefire, Russia’s Defense Ministry said, adding that if things do not change, Washington will be the sole side responsible for the failure of the truce.

After five days of the ceasefire, it has to be noted that only the Russian and Syrian sides have been fully implementing their commitments. On its own initiative, Russia prolonged the cessation of hostilities for 48 hours, and yesterday it was extended for another 72 hours,” senior Russian General Staff official, Viktor Poznikhir, said at a briefing in Moscow.

But, according to Poznikhir, it is very different on the American side as “the US and the so-called moderate groups under their control didn’t fulfill a single commitment undertaken in the framework of the Geneva arrangements.”

Well, THAT sure as heck didn't take long!

Alabama, Tennessee, & Georgia Declare States Of Emergency As Gas Shortages Loom After Pipeline Leak

As Native Americans protesters face arrest in North Dakota for blocking the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, TheAntiMedia's Carey Wedler reports a gasoline pipeline spill is currently unfolding in the South. The leak has prompted Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal to declare states of emergency.

The Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Houston to New York, began leaking on September 9, spilling 250,000 gallons of gasoline, or 6,000 barrels. The pipeline was built in 1962, and the current leak in Helena, Alabama, is the largest one Colonial Pipeline has experienced in 20 years, Reuters noted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Also, as reported this morning at activistpost.com:

This whole situation keeps getting worse and worse. It seems to be growing by the day. When Colonial Pipeline originally announced the leak, it was reported that a mere 1,000 barrels of gas had leaked, or said another way, approximately 45,000 gallons. It was then increased to 250,000 gallons – more than a 5-fold increase. Now it has reached more than an 8-fold increase from the original estimate. Do they actually know how much damage has been done and do they know how much gas has leaked out? The Sept. 9 break has leaked 6,000 barrels (approximately 250,000 gallons) of fuel into Shelby County, Alabama, the operator estimated, up from its original estimation of 1,000 barrels. The cause of the leak is currently unclear. Source The more I dig into this gas pipeline leak situation the worse it gets. As we reported yesterday the Colonial Pipeline that pumps gasoline from Houston, Tx to southern New York state became damaged on Friday September 9, 2016. Major news sources didn’t begin reporting this incident until Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and national news services first reported on it beginning Friday September 16, 2016 a full week later. Somewhere between regional news and national news coverage of a 250,000 gallon leak in south central Alabama the governors of Alabama and Georgia announce there is a state of emergency. The leak is outside Birmingham, AL and the gas would have some area to cover to reach Georgia. So far this whole situation is beginning to smell funny and it’s not just the gas fumes.

To our readers and listeners in the affected areas; please make sure that your car and truck tanks get filled soon, because there is a distinct possibility that your local gas stations may well be out of gas before you get there.

Also, make sure you have potable water; storable food; extra medications; and off-grid power available, if possible. The fix for this leak may turn out to be a really time-intensive mess.

Gov. Kasich Visits Obama at White House for TPP Push Meeting

He lost badly in the Republican presidential primary election to now-nominee Donald Trump, refused to attend the Republican National convention in the state where he is governor, and now John Kasich is visiting President Barack Obama in the White House to help Obama pass the highly controversial trade agreement, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
“We now have a unique opportunity, again to put country in front of politics,” Kasich said during a White House press briefing along with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed who also attended the meeting. “The two nations that most vociferously oppose this agreement are China…” he continued, also mentioning Vladimir Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to John Kasich: no sir, this treaty does NOT put country in front of politics; it puts corporations WAY in front of the citizens of this country!

As reported at huffingtonpost.com in May 2016:

So the fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected. This is bizarre stuff, folks, but welcome to the world of international trade deals. From Ryan Grim’s article the day Fast Track was passed, about the amendment in question: That measure would bar governments considered to be complicit in human trafficking from receiving the economic benefits of a fast-tracked trade deal. Menendez, the author of the provision, has described it as a human rights protection that will prevent U.S. workers from competing with modern-day slave labor. The administration has pushed against the provision, saying it would prevent Malaysia from participating in the deal, and eliminate incentives for the country to upgrade its human trafficking enforcement. Human rights advocates strongly support the language that passed the Senate on Friday. The president argues that if the U.S. doesn’t cut deals with these partner countries, China will, to U.S. disadvantage. The State Department’s human trafficking analysis of Malaysia describes the country as “a destination and, to a lesser extent, a source and transit country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and women and children subjected to sex trafficking.” The department cites forced labor problems in Malaysia’s palm oil industry, and nonprofit groups have noted similar abuses in the Malaysian electronics industry. The State Department report says Malaysian ‘public officials... may profit from trafficking.’ The President does not want an anti-slavery provision in what he calls the “most progressive trade deal of all time” because it would keep a country noted for its egregious slave trade out of the treaty? I have to admit this bothers me just a little. Okay, a massive amount. We’re not going to object to slavery because a country that openly engages in it might trade more with China than with us? Doesn’t this kind of blow up the whole “most progressive trade agreement in history” thing?

In fact, will the approval of such a treaty by Congress indicate that it, too ,is just FINE with child and slave labor in this country, in order to compete with corporations in countries already doing this to lower their bottom line?!?

Is the approval of this treaty setting the stage, and creating the legal precedent, for the return of child and slave labor in this country?!?

Congressional approval of this treaty may well be opening a door to a very sordid place from American history I think very few Americans would want to, willingly, revisit.

Congressional representatives, you have been duly warned; if you want to keep your seats in Congress, do not ratify this treaty, period, end of discussion!!

Western Media Credibility In Free Fall Collapse

The latest from the Gallup Poll is that only 32% of Americans trust the print and TV media to tell the truth.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/195542/americans-trust-mass-media-sinks-new...

Republicans, 18 to 49 year old Americans, and independents trust the media even less, with trust rates of 14%, 26%, and 30%.

The only group that can produce a majority that still trusts the media are Democrats with a 51% trust rate in print and TV reporting. The next highest trust rate is Americans over 50 years of age with a trust rate of 38 percent.

It is not difficult to see why trust in the media has collapsed. The corrupt Clinton regime, which we might be on the verge of repeating, allowed a somewhat diverse and independent media to be 90% acquired by six mega-corporations. The result was the disappearance of independence in reporting and opinion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would very emphatically challenge Dr. Roberts on that last bit; this is why people, hungry for the truth, are flocking to independent media sites like WRH!! :-)

Ravaged by conflict, Yemen's coast faces rising malnutrition

Sitting by her son's hospital bed, Houdaid Masbah looks at her 5-year-old boy's skeletal body and sunken cheeks, helplessness engulfing her like a thick cloud — a desperation she shares with many other mothers in Hodeidah.

Even before the war, Hodeidah was one of the poorest cities in Yemen, the Arab world's most impoverished nation. Now, the destruction of the port city's fishing boats and infrastructure by the Saudi-led coalition's airstrikes over the past 18 months of war has deprived the townspeople of their prime livelihood.

The U.N. estimates that about 100,000 children under the age of five in the city and the surrounding province, also called Hodeidah, are at risk of severe malnutrition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Chronic malnutrition, after a point, leaves a child mentally crushed for life, and physically disabled; there is only some level of restoration possible to physical and mental capabilities, but the kid may never be "normal".

Take a good, hard look at this haunted, hungry face; then imagine, for one second, that this was your kid, and you are powerless to help them.

US government is facilitating this massive epidemic of malnutrition in Yemen, by being a partner in war crimes to the Saudi government

DNI DECLINES REQUIRED DAMAGE ASSESSMENT OF CLINTON’S LEAKED EMAIL SECRETS

The U.S. intelligence community declined to conduct a required assessment of the damage to national security caused by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton sending and receiving secrets on a private email server.

“ODNI is not leading an [intelligence community]-wide damage assessment and is not aware of any individual IC element conducting such formal assessments,” Joel D. Melstad, a spokesman for the of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said.

The most sensitive classified information leaked and possibly obtained by foreign intelligence services included ultra-secret information on U.S. drone strikes, according to American intelligence officials.

It is very simple here; neither Clapper nor Melstad want to wind up "depressed" in Fort Marcy Park!!

Clinton Foundation CEO Admits To Pay-For-Play: "No Question" That "Courtesy Appointments" Were Made

Yesterday, the CEO of the Clinton Foundation, Donna Shalala, went on MSNBC and openly admitted to engaging in "pay-for-play" activities saying there is "no question" that Foundation donors received "courtesy appointments" during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State. Somehow, Shalala would like for us to believe that so long as appointees weren't put in a position to impact policy decisions then there is no real issue. I guess we should just ignore that taxpayers are funding the salaries of those appointees and paying for their government-related travel all over the world while Hillary gets to accrue "political capital" and her Foundation gets to continue raking in the donations?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Donna Shalala: under Clinton's watch, the US government became a government for sale, and to the highest bidder, under the Clintons' "pay to play" scheme.

And any government's money was just fine, no matter what they did to the citizens of their own country,even countries which included:

chemically castrating, jailing, and executing their LGBTQ communities

and:

permitting the brutal, barbaric practice of female genital mutilation

Sorry, Ms. Shalala: these are the facts.

Are you going to tell me that Hillary Clinton "didn't know" these practices were going on in many of the Middle Eastern and Northern African from which the Clinton Foundation gladly accepted donations?!?

Or would you give me the most likely, honest answer, that being she did know, but didn't give a damn.

Oh...silence at this question, right?!?

Hillary Clinton 'Systematically Overcharging' Her Poorest Donors to Fund Her Campaign

Even for Hillary Clinton, this is a new low.

Hillary for America processed a total of $94 in unauthorized charges to Carol Mahre's US Bank account. This follows a pattern in which unwitting donors are charged multiple times, but always for a total of less than $100, which is a key trigger point for banks' internal action systems.

Hillary Clinton's campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what's supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.

"We Got Played!" Media Triggered After Trump Trolls Them Into Covering Military Endorsements

The absolute madman strikes again!

The media showed up to the presidential ballroom of the new Trump International Hotel on Friday morning expecting Donald Trump to take questions about whether he still questions if President Obama was born in the United States.

Instead, they got more than a half hour of a variety of military heroes — generals, medal of honor recipients and a gold star wife — expressing support for the Republican nominee. And it all aired live on the cable news networks.

Deutsche Bank to fight $14 billion demand from U.S. authorities

Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) said it would fight a $14 billion demand from the U.S. Department of Justice to settle claims it missold mortgage-backed securities, a shock bill that raises questions about the future of Germany's largest lender.

The claim against Deutsche, which is likely to trigger several months of talks, far exceeds the bank's expectations that the DoJ would be looking for a figure of only up to 3 billion euros ($3.4 billion).

The demand adds to the problems facing Deutsche Bank's Chief Executive John Cryan, a Briton who has been in the job for a year.

The bank only scraped through European stress tests in July and has warned it may need deeper cost cuts to turn itself around after revenue fell sharply in the second quarter due to challenging markets and low interest rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any yet, if in fact these allegations prove true (and I do not doubt for a second that they are), there are no criminal indictments against any of the US Deutsche Bank executives who signed off on these business practices?!?

Leak From Biggest U.S. Gasoline Pipe Sparks ‘Red Alert’

Gasoline prices are set to jump across the eastern U.S. after a spill from the country’s largest fuel pipeline choked off supplies.
A leak in Alabama Sept. 9 shut the main gasoline pipeline delivering fuel from refineries along the Gulf Coast to 50 million Americans in states from Mississippi to New Jersey. Colonial Pipeline Co. said on Thursday it pushed back the estimate for a complete startup of its Line 1 to next week from this weekend, citing adverse weather conditions overnight that slowed the cleanup and repair.

Suppliers are moving gasoline and diesel by sea and sending trucks to distant terminals to bring fuel to consumers, but it won’t come close to the 1.3 million barrels a day that the shuttered line normally carries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, coupled with the bankruptcy of the South Korean shipping company Hanjin, is going to have a cascade effect on the delivery of goods here in the US.

If you have the ability to stock up now on some basics, you might want to do that, particularly if you live in the Eastern and Southern parts of the US.

DHS accused of sitting on damning border report as immigration issue drives presidential race

Federal lawmakers seeking to pinpoint the number of illegal immigrants who successfully sneak across the southern border ordered up a report from the Department of Homeland Security, but the agency refuses to release it and instead cites a misleading statistic that overstates the number who are nabbed, sources told Fox News.

DHS denied it is holding back the report, but sources say it was completed in November and that it shows roughly half of adults who attempt to cross the border make it - approximately 250,000 in total.

But that number is at odds with DHS’ official estimates. The agency claims authorities catch 80 percent of adults trying to sneak in, but critics say the figure is padded to make it appear border security is more effective than it really is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Obama Administration simply lies about everything, or withholds evidence when the information doesn't suit their narrative; this is why you cannot believe anything in this administration says, ever.

And perhaps the most ironic statement comes further down in the article with the following remark:

"“It erodes the trust as to whether the administration is being honest with the American people about what the threat is,” said Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., who serves on the Committee on Homeland Security and chairs the Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee.

Representative McSally, apparently, you have not received the memo: the American people do not trust the American government on ANYTHING, and it is a status which the US government has earned, by the lies, the corruption, and the double-dealing in which it indulges every day, 24/7

90-year-old Florida man arrested for second time in a week after feeding the homeless again

When 90-year-old Florida resident Arnold Abbott said following his arrest on Sunday that police couldn’t stop him from feeding the homeless, he apparently meant it.

Abbott was charged again on Wednesday night for violating a new city law in Ft. Lauderdale that essentially prevents people from feeding the homeless.

“I expected it" he said in a Sun Sentinel report. “At least this time they let us feed people first.”

Officers lingered in the area for about 45 minutes during which time Abbott and volunteers with the Love Thy Neighbor charity he founded handed out more than 100 plates of hot chicken stew, pasta, cheesy potatoes and fruit salad to homeless men and women.

If he’s found guilty of violating city ordinance laws — his second in a week — he faces 60 days in jail or a $500 fine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously, the city of Ft. Lauderdale ( in its infinite absence of wisdom) is completely, and thoroughly impotent to fix the problems of homelessness and hunger in their city; so naturally, officials decided the best way of "curing the problem" was to criminalize the feeding of the homeless!!

Smooth move there, city officials, congrats!

Because now, you have identified Ft. Lauderdale as "The City that Can't!", when it comes to resolving intense urban social problems, and the speculation that every City Council member here had their conscience surgically removed before taking office has, sadly, proven true.

My heart and my head are with Arnold Abbott, and his brother and sister volunteers at the Love Thy Neighbor charity.

May they ultimately be absolved, and may the city of Ft. Lauderdale find a more compassionate way of dealing with its hungry and homeless, many of whom are in this situation through absolutely no fault of their own.

DARPA ANNOUNCES AERIAL DRAGNET URBAN DRONE MONITORING PROGRAM

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency announced this week it is seeking proposals for its Aerial Dragnet program, a new initiative that seeks to monitor drones flying below 1,000 feet in large cities.

The program seeks to map small drones in urban terrain using innovative technologies that would provide persistent, wide-area surveillance, the agency said in a statement.

While Aerial Dragnet's focus is on protecting military troops in overseas urban settings, the system could also find civilian applications to help protect U.S. metropolitan areas from drone-enabled terrorist threats.

The need for a comprehensive tracking system has increased as off-the-shelf drones become less expensive, easier to fly and more adaptable to terrorist and military needs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, DARPA is looking at this for US urban surveillance?!?

And since when have the protections afforded by the Constitution and Bill of Rights been "chucked" for what is known as "Code Napoleon Law", where a suspect is automatically considered guilty before proven innocent?!?

I frankly do not remember that having happened, at least in terms of the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And what about the potential danger of small drones, and the capability of arming them?!?

As reported in breakingdefense.com in June of last year:

“We’re seeing capabilities that were previously the monopoly of major military powers are now accessible…to non-state actors, even individuals,” said Kelley Sayler. She’s an associate fellow at Center for a New American Security and author of a report out this morning, “A World of Proliferated Drones.” (CNAS provided us a copy in advance). “There’s been a lot of discussion around town, particularly as relates to drones in the national security space about high-end drones,” Sayler told me. “We didn’t really see there being discussion on the range of systems that are available…particularly given the availability of low-end systems, hobbyist drones, even commercial drones.” The biggest danger in the medium term: swarming technology. As drones get not only smarter but cheaper, an enterprising adversary could buy a bunch and release them all at once, with the drones using insect-like artificial intelligence to converge on their target. Lots of little threats carrying lots of little bombs can add up quickly. “Particularly if you’re looking at systems that can truly navigate autonomously, using those systems en masse is going to enable you to neutralize a much larger target,” Sayler said, “[and] it’s going to be more difficult to defend against because some of the lower end solutions like shooting the thing out with a shotgun might not necessarily be feasible.” “Drones will enable airborne IEDs [improvised explosive devices] that can actively seek out US forces, rather than passively lying in wait,” Sayler wrote in the report. “Indeed, low-cost drones may lead to a paradigm shift in ground warfare for the United States, ending more than a half-century…in which US ground forces have not had to fear attacks from the air.”

So the question I want to ask DARPA is as follows: since when have my brother and sister Americans, and peaceful legal immigrants become "the bad guys", in desperate need of surveillance, or perhaps, extrajudicial assassinations, as are used in Afghanistan and Iraq?!?

To say that I am profoundly disappointed in this kind of thinking by my government, is like saying that the Titanic hit a little ice!

It turns out that Trump’s base personality is “winning.” Everything else he does is designed to get that result. He needed to be loud and outrageous in the primaries, so he was. He needs to be presidential in this phase of the election cycle, so he is.

Violent Clashes Break Out Between Locals And Refugees In German Town

If Angela Merkel has been waiting for just the right moment when she can unleash the Bundeswehr to "pacify" the unruly public, she may have an opening. According to Deutsche Welle, in the small town of Bautzen in the state of Saxony, a second night of violent clashes broke out between residents and migrants.

An 18-year-old migrant reportedly suffered stab wounds in the clashes. The ambulance taking him to hospital was subsequently attacked by extremists, who threw stones at it. A second ambulance had to be called to take the man to hospital.

The mayor of Bautzen, Alexander Ahrens, said that he denounced the clashes in his town. "I strongly denounce this violence and would like to stress that I do so regardless of who may have started it," Ahrens said. Cited by DW, Ahrens told dpa that the level of violence in the town had reached a new level. "Bautzen cannot become a playground for violent right-wing radicals," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I very much fear, because of these immigration surges, that Europe itself is just on the keening edge of an horrific civil war, between residents and immigrants.

Oh, and to how many of those immigrants to Germany are actually employable?!? As reported in zerohedge.com this morning:

While it sounded like a great plan, it doesn't really work that well if new migrants fail to find jobs and become economically productive members of society which, according to Reuters, is exactly what is happening. Apparently, German companies have only been able to find jobs for about 100 of the 1 million migrants that have recently found their way into the country. Many of the companies say a lack of German-language skills, the inability of most refugees to prove any qualifications, and uncertainty about their permission to stay in the country mean there is little they can do in the short term. A survey by Reuters of the 30 companies in Germany's DAX stock market index found they could point to just 63 refugee hires in total. Several of the 26 firms who responded said they considered it discriminatory to ask about applicants' migration history, so they did not know whether they employed refugees or how many. Of the 63 hires, 50 are employed by Deutsche Post DHL, which said it applied a "pragmatic approach" and deployed the refugees to sort and deliver letters and parcels. "Given that around 80 percent of asylum seekers are not highly qualified and may not yet have a high level of German proficiency, we have primarily offered jobs that do not require technical skills or a considerable amount of interaction in German," a spokesman said by email.

Forget ‘Stop and Frisk’ — Cops Across US Collecting DNA of Innocent People in ‘Stop and Swabs’

Without laws to guide them, police around the country have begun collecting people’s DNA — even when no crime has been committed — using private labs which then store the genetic material for unknown periods to make identification simple in the event a crime is committed in the future.

Known generally as “stop and spit,” the practice of requesting the DNA of adults and juveniles during routine traffic stops and even basic interactions with police, ProPublica reports, is not only wholly unregulated and unlegislated, it is alarmingly common.

“Over the last decade,” writes Lauren Kirchner for ProPublica, “collecting DNA from people who are not charged with — or even suspected of — any particular crime has become an increasingly routine practice for police in smaller cities” in Florida, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.

Hillary’s Deplorables: 7 Foreign Dictators and Anti-LGBT Nations Hillary Bagged Millions From

When Hillary Clinton described half of the Americans supporting Donald Trump as a “basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” people, she opened herself up to criticism about her own “deplorables”: The repressive regimes that gave millions to the Clinton Foundation, many of those high-dollar donations flooding in while Clinton was serving as Secretary of State.

From despots looking to gain legitimacy on the international stage to oil-rich oligarchs, Hillary Clinton’s family foundation took money from the worst of the worst and countries with horrific human rights records.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And again, don't any of you Clintonistas DARE to try to offer the "ignorance apology" for Clinton, that she just didn't know this horrific stuff was going on in these countries from which she tool money.

One little, tiny bit of research from an intern would have pulled this information up with a web search, brought it to Huma Abedin's attention, and suggesting that this might not a terribly wise thing to do.

And the LGBTQ community needs to ask itself honestly, "If the Clinton Foundation took money from these countries, which do these horrific things, HOW CAN SHE REALLY BE PRO THE LGBTQ community here in the United States?!?"

And the short answer is, she's not.

Folks the most logical answer here is, she knew; and she took the money anyway.

Monsanto and Bayer: Why Food And Agriculture Just Took A Turn For The Worse

News broke this week that Monsanto accepted a $66 billion takeover bid from Bayer. The new company would control more than 25 per cent of the global supply of commercial seeds and pesticides. Bayer’s crop chemicals business is the world’s second largest after Syngenta, and Monsanto is the leading commercial seeds business.

Monsanto held a 26 per cent market share of all seeds sold in 2011. Bayer (mainly a pharmaceuticals company) sells 17 per cent of the world’s total agrochemicals and also has a comparatively small seeds sector. If competition authorities pass the deal, the combined company would be the globe’s largest seller of both seeds and agrochemicals.

The deal marks a trend towards consolidation in the industry with Dow and DuPont having agreed to merge and Swiss seed/pesticide giant Syngenta merging with ChemChina, a Chinese government concern.

In response to the Monsanto-Bayer merger, US National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson issued the following statement:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This would-be corporate marriage has been fabricated in hell.

While much money rides on these megamergers, I would encourage every appropriate governmental agency to look, very closely, at what the realities are, in terms of how such a merger will affect the nutrition, and health, of every American.

Top diplomats from U.S., Japan, South Korea to meet on North Korea

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts in New York on Sunday to discuss responses to North Korea's latest nuclear test, South Korea's foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

The three countries are pushing for tough new U.N. Security Council sanctions on North Korea after the isolated country on Friday conducted its fifth and largest nuclear test.

The blast was in defiance of U.N. sanctions that were tightened in March.

China, the North's chief ally, backed the March resolution but is more resistant to harsh new sanctions this time after the United States and South Korea decided to deploy a sophisticated anti-missile system in the South, which China adamantly opposes.

South Korea said Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se and his counterparts Kerry and Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida will meet during the annual U.N. General Assembly to discuss putting further pressure on North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Secretary of State Kerry, South Korean Foreign Minster Byung-se, and Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida: the one thing you all CAN do is invite both North Korea and China to a Peace Conference, to replaced the Armistice which has existed over 60 years, with a real peace deal, including North Korea's cessation of expanding their nuclear capability.

Then, negotiate in good faith to get it done, and make it happen.

Of course, that....would be logical.

But I do have a caveat for the Foreign Ministers of both Japan and South Korea; the US government may well not be amenable to such a solution, and let me share with you why.

As you have noticed, the American Presidential Election cycle has just heated up as though it were on industrial strength steroids.

IF internal polls at the White House and the Democratic National Committee indicate that Donald Trump may well win our Presidential election in a landslide in November, they may very well want to "gift" him with a war (any war will do, but with the US public sentiment not warm toward Kim Jong Un, it's a good starting place, in their minds) before he has the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.

Yes, I know this may sound crazy; however, logic and prudence, and care for the real concerns of the American people, haven't been around for quite some time in American governance, resulting in:

Massive poverty:

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes

Multiple military misadventures:

U.S. troops staying in Afghanistan? New look at reduction plan

Endless corruption is leaving Iraq a failed state

Libya: From Africa’s Richest State Under Gaddafi, to Failed State After NATO Intervention

"What A Mess!" - Pentagon At War With CIA In Syria

And of course, an absolutely unpayable National Debt:

U.S. NATIONAL DEBT CLOCK

Coupled with a monumental trade imbalance:

US current account trade deficit narrows to $119.9 billion

A logical, responsible government, at this point, would be trying to fix the fundamentals of an economy gone wrong, and evaluate why the US's military interventions have been such blatant failures; but this will not happen because more military interventions will fatten the coffers of the 1 percenters, heavily invested in the military industrial complex, and campaign donations to Congressional representatives who deliver what they want, in terms of national and international policies.

Additionally, those in the bowels of power in DC believe that another war may distract many Americans from the grinding poverty to which they have been condemned through the offshoring/outsourcing of the jobs which used to underpin the American middle class.

South Korean Foreign Minster Byung-se, and Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida, I encourage you both to have conversations with your counterparts in the Chinese government, and see how far they are willing to go to reach a consensus about inviting North Korea for a peace conference. The way President Obama threatened China about their activities in the South China Sea at the G20, you may have a rough road here, but please counsel patience; Obama will be out of the White House in January of next year.

I frankly think that such a move, toward a legitimate peace conference with North Korea, will be the only way to stop a US war against North Korea, and ultimately, China.
