13-minute video: Hillary Clinton a threat to all humanity; the only rational, legal, responsible citizen move is her arrest for OBVIOUS crimes in war, looting, lying (and don’t vote for Trump)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

GlobalReasearchTV’s sharp 13-minute video to detail lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, threats for further wars, and serial lying:

Hillary Clinton belongs in prison for her principal roles in ongoing lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression as a vocal US Senator, the top US representative with other nations as Secretary of State, and two-time presidential candidate.

These crimes (as well as running a rogue State Department with illegal and non-secure e-mails she lies about) are Emperor’s New Clothes obvious for anyone caring to look:

All US reasons for war on Afghanistan, Iraq, threats for war on Iran, and support for Israel’s war on Gaza were known to be false as they were told.
US armed attacks and ongoing wars are the Orwellian opposite of legal. After two world wars with US-led treaties, these are Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity, with the UK and Israel equally guilty with their “leaderships.”

Eric Trump’s full speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention

“To whom much is given, much will be required.

“This is the very belief that made my father make this great sacrifice.
“To run for the most powerful yet unforgiving office in the world.

“There is no greater calling….

“Vote for the candidate who can’t be bought, sold, purchased, coerced, intimidated or steered from the path that is right, and just and true….

“To the veteran tuning into this speech from his or her hospital, whose been ignored and disrespected by an ungrateful system, my father is running for you….

“Vote for the one candidate who does not need this job.”

— Eric Trump, son of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, spoke Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Democratic convention draws thousands of protesters to Philadelphia

Thousands of demonstrators took to the sweltering streets of Philadelphia on Sunday, chanting and beating drums in the first major protests ahead of the Democratic national convention.

The group of about a dozen marchers walked on sidewalks from near the convention site up toward the Liberty Bell. One played This Land is Your Land on bagpipes as the group weaved around people eating brunch at sidewalk cafes and others walking dogs.

Jill Stein Just BLASTED the DNC Over Leaked Emails

“This latest revelation from WikiLeaks underscores how much the media is in bed with the DNC to circle the wagons around Hillary,” Stein told US Uncut in a phone interview. “The corruption and underhanded tactics and deception and conspiratorial efforts to silence Bernie and delegitimize him — I mean, welcome to the Green Party. This is what we’ve been up against forever.”

“The leaked DNC emails are the smoking gun that the Democratic establishment was rigging the game against Bernie the whole time,” Stein said in a press release issued by her campaign. “Instead of running the process impartially and letting the voters decide, top Democratic officials were doing all they could to ensure a Clinton victory, including collusion with journalists to present a pro-Clinton, anti-Sanders narrative.”

Questions Surrounding The Munich Shooting

By Brandon Turbeville

Days after the German mainstream press attempted to portray the Munich shooter both as an ISIS fighter and a right wing extremist, more information has come to light surrounding the history of the shooter and his motives. But, the more information reported by the mainstream press regarding the incident, the more questions that arise in connection to the incident itself.

To be clear, there is not enough evidence to clearly label this attack as a false flag or as a lone nut incident. Still, there are a number of questions that need to be answered and there are a number of aspects to this case that need to be addressed as potentially more than merely striking coincidences. We must avoid the temptation to label every attack as a false flag but we must never ignore the signs that we are witnessing one...

I have already reported that G-20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors have been meeting in Chengdu, China this weekend.

“Careless” is Not the Word For What Clinton Did

But even if we accept that the standard is what Comey says it is, Clinton is still guilty. Because there was nothing “careless” about the way she set up her email system. In fact, she went out of her way to cautiously and deliberately thwart State Department rules regarding the use of email. She relied on multiple private servers, warned agency IT staff to look the other way, and failed to abide by regulations requiring her to turn her emails over at the end of her term. None of this happened by accident.

Democrats Accuse Russia Of Hacking DNC Server To Help Donald Trump

"What is disturbing to us is that experts are telling us that Russians broke into the DNC, stole these emails and other experts are now saying that the Russians are now releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump. I don't think it's coincidental that these emails were released on the eve of our convention here and that's disturbing."

Sanders calls on Dem party boss to step down following email leaks

She "should not be chair of the DNC, and I think these emails reiterate that reason why she should not be chair," the Vermont senator said on ABC's "This Week."

"I think she should resign, period, and I think we need a new chair that's going to lead us in a new direction."

I thought Debbie Wasserman Shultz already announced she would resign by year's end (probably to take that cushy White house job Hillary is rewarding her with.)

They’re With Her: US Media Uses Putin, Russia to Label Trump a Traitor

Democrats use media to disperse anti-Russian propaganda in a bid to bloody Trump’s campaign with far-fetched suggestions including that the billionaire real estate tycoon is conspiring with Putin to invade his wife’s hometown.

For those in the United States who ran a simple search of Donald Trump’s name a day after the Republican Convention expecting to see a critical response from the mainstream punditry they were in for a stunning propagandistic treat when they hit the enter button with 12 of the top 14 articles featuring titles in the vein of "Trump proves he is Putin’s lapdog."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is desperation on the cusp of madness, courtesy of the DNC, and is proof positive that they are scared to death of his candidacy, because so much of what he says connects with a large swath of American voters.

Is he a perfect candidate, incapable of sometimes behaving like a blunt instrument?

No.

But is he a real, viable challenge to the "business as usual" career politicians who are completely tone-deaf to the plight of so many Americans who have found themselves, through absolutely no fault of their own, economically marginalized through offshoring/outsource of jobs which used to be the mainstay of a thriving, stable middle class?!?

HELL, yes!

IN FIRST "EMERGENCY" DECREE, ERDOGAN SHUTS DOWN THOUSANDS OF HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS, CHARITIES

With the failed/staged Turkish coup quickly fading from memory and media attention, just as Erdogan likes it, and opposition from "western democracies" to a historic purge virtually non-existent aside from the occasional media soundbite, overnight Erdogan implemented his first decree since imposing a state of emergency in the country last week, and tightened his grip on Turkey by ordering the closure of thousands of private schools, charities and other institutions in his first decree since imposing a state of emergency after the failed military coup.

In his first "emergency powers" decree, published by the Anadolu state news agency, Erdogan authorised the closure of 1,043 private schools, 1,229 charities and foundations, 19 trade unions, 15 universities and 35 hospitals over suspected links to the Gulen movement. The government also announced it would seize the properties of all these schools, universities and private institutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that Turkey's currently leadership has not thought through the financial implications of these moves on their economy.

Watch for the Turkish lira to be degraded to "junk" status very soon.

But one thing is clear; in his occupation of the Incerlik base (with its US personnel and nuclear weapons), Erdogan has the current American government by a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy, and is squeezing it in a most painful way.

Under no circumstances can Obama deliver Gulen alive, because he will completely spill the beans on CIA activities in Turkey, even before they tickle him with a feather to get him to "confess"

Therefore, the only option is an extrajudicial assassination against him, most probably courtesy of the CIA.

Obama is no stranger at all to this process; after all, he has signed hundreds, if not thousands, of orders for extrajudicial assassinations during his administration.

One more, to attempt to salvage any possible rapprochement with Turkey, will be no big deal for him.

LA goes dark: Smoke and a layer of ash cover Los Angeles as huge 20,000-acre wildfire burns out of control north of the city and forces at least 1,000 residents to abandon their homes

Two wildfires burning out of control Saturday in California have left cities like Los Angeles looking eerie and supernatural as plumes of gray colored smoke filled the sky as more than 20,000 acres of land has been destroyed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I remember years ago when I was working as a magician at Magic Mountain, there were brush fires blowing up on three sides of the park, so the order was given to close the park and give the visitors rain(fire)-checks to come back another day. The plan was the the entertainers to help shepherd the customers out the gates and after they were gone there was this eerie scene out of a Twilight Zone of an amusement park all lit up and running, but no people, and all around the horizon, smoke and fires right out of Dante!

VIDEO: BIZARRE HILLARY BEHAVIOR CAUGHT ON CAMERA

This recent video showing a seizure type episode suffered by Hillary Clinton adds to the reoccurring questions about the overall health of the Democratic Party's nominee.

Not that Clinton is in perfect health. She is on Coumadin, an anti-coagulation medication she takes for deep-vein thrombosis (that is, a blood clot in a deep vein). She suffered from the condition in 1998 and 2009, Bardack writes, and also suffered a clot after a 2012 concussion. That concussion came as Clinton, dehydrated from a stomach virus, fainted in her home. Though the effects of the concussion are gone and the thrombosis was dissolved, she has taken the medication since then as a precaution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I doubt that this "release" is any more real than her tax reports on the Clinton Foundation.

In fact, I would love to see both true medical - and financial audit here.

Freewheeling Trump has backed down on only one issue. Guess which one.

But then there’s this. Back in late winter Trump said he was going to be neutral in his position on Israel and Palestine so he could negotiate that deal of deals as president:

If I’m going to be president, I’d rather be in the position, because I will try the best I can, and I’m a very good dealmaker, believe me, to try and solve that puzzle. You’re not going to solve it if you’re going to be on one side or another. Everyone understands that. If I’m going to solve the problem, I want to go in with a clean slate.

He also shocked Israel supporters by saying that Israel should help pay for the American defense budget, not the other way around!

There was huge pushback on those positions, challenges on the Sunday talk shows, and . . . Trump backed off both positions in his speech to the Israel lobby group AIPAC in March.

Being human on a psychopathically controlled Earth: Three lessons from the movie ‘Groundhog Day’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The 1993 movie Groundhog Day is the story of a person trapped to live the same day over and over. The main character responds to this situation in three phases:

Manipulative control for selfish short-term desires.
Depression and attempted rejection from no escape and no satisfaction.
Self-expression for virtue and service with satisfaction.
After selfish desire is transcended, the character awakens on a new day with all the earned skills of practiced virtues.

Five-minute overview:

2016 planet Earth is the story of humanity trapped to live the same psychopathic control system over and over. Relatively unaware humans are like the background characters in Groundhog Day, operational work animals for the .01%. Relatively aware humans respond to this situation in three phases:

Manipulative control for selfish benefits (willfully operating within parasitic systems and/or joining the .01% psychopaths).

Leftists Planning Coup On President Trump? L.A. Times Says “Voters Must Stop Him Before Military Has To”

There is a very real and very potent anger fomenting across our country. Though there are good reasons for it, most of it is misdirected, and 2016 has proven to be open season for attacks of all kind against Trump and his supporters. Violence has trailed his campaign as passionate leftists stop at nothing to defy his controversial policies on immigration and the rest of it. The rule of law is slipping away, and certain sectors of the establishment love the chaos is will bring.

Donald Trump and the Revolt of the Proles

The Trump phenom is about economic insecurity. This isn’t about ideology, or racism, it’s about reality;

Western elites were shocked by Brexit, shocked that all their fear mongering and finger-wagging amounted to nothing. The same is true in the US, where the media’s daily attacks on Trump have failed to erode his base of support at all, in fact, they may have added to it.

That’s the reality that made Trump possible, and that’s what this election is about, economic insecurity.

Emails reveal role of Monsanto in Séralini study retraction

In September 2012 the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) published the research of a team led by the French biologist Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini, which found liver and kidney toxicity and hormonal disturbances in rats fed Monsanto’s GM maize NK603 and very small doses of the Roundup herbicide it is grown with, over a long-term period. An additional observation was a trend of increased tumours in most treatment groups.

In November 2013 the study was retracted by the journal’s editor, A. Wallace Hayes, after the appointment of a former Monsanto scientist, Richard E. Goodman, to the editorial board and a non-transparent review process by nameless people that took several months.

Did Monsanto pressure the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) to retract the study? French journalist Stéphane Foucart addresses this question in an article for Le Monde.

Speaking at the White House today, President Obama denied unequivocally that the US had any prior knowledge of last week’s failed military coup in Turkey, calling on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to make sure everyone in Turkey knows the US wasn’t involved.

Grinning Obama JOKES during statement on Munich carnage as he shifts gears to say he'll miss daughter Malia when she leaves the nest for college

As news reports of a gun massacre in Munich crossed the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, the President of the United States was cracking jokes.
Barack Obama delivered a brief update to reporters at the White House about the still-unfolding shooting rampage that left the German city on lockdown.
Eight are confirmed dead, and 10 injured.

The president was speaking to law enforcement agents at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, adjacent to the White House.

But as cameras rolled on the somber moment, Obama grinned and chuckled – and drew laughs from his audience – about his elder daughter Malia leaving the nest and heading for college.

This is perfectly predictable from one of the most emotionally "tone-deaf" Presidents we have ever had.

"TURKEY’S SECRET PACT WITH ISLAMIC STATE EXPOSED BY OPERATIVE BEHIND WAVE OF ISIS ATTACKS"

New evidence has emerged that the Turkish government under President Erdogan is covertly providing direct military, financial and logistical support to ISIS, even while claiming to fight the terror network.

The evidence comes in the form of testimony from an ISIS terrorist captured by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, widely recognised as the most effective force confronting ISIS on the ground.

The testimony has been reported by two Kurdish news agencies, the Syrian-Kurdish Harwar News Agency (ANHA) based in Rojava, and the Turkish-Kurdish Ajansa Nûçeyan a Firatê (Firat News Agency or ANF News). The latter’s head office is based in Amsterdam.

Websites of both news agencies are blocked in Turkey.

Interviews with the ISIS fighter, captured by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), reveal that Turkish military and security forces are facilitating ISIS operations within Syria, as well as ISIS terrorist attacks inside Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, this is a very damning development.

And even if not true, my bet will be that the US government will use it as anti-Turkey propaganda.

Unfortunately, however, President Obama is in a very difficult situation.

Turkey has our 2700 troops at Incerlik, and 51 nuclear bombs; Turkey has formally demanded the extradition of Imam Gulen, a demand to which the US government has not responded, and most probably will not.

And the reason I say this is because Gulen is a CIA asset, who most probably will blab everything he knows about the CIA's presence in Turkey at the first threat of "enhanced interrogation."

Look for Gulen to become "very depressed" about the situation in his homeland, get suicided", and Fedexed back to Erdogan in a cheap metal casket.

Political assassinations have become such a norm in this country that I would not bet against it right now.

It often keeps people who need help from getting help. It undermines our very Constitution. The drug war is a failed and very expensive social experiment. We need to find another way.

AT LEAST 61 KILLED AFTER SUICIDE BOMBING ATTACK IN KABUL CLAIMED BY ISIS

At least 61 people were killed and 207 injured when a huge blast rocked a mass demonstration by members of the mainly Shia Hazara minority in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Saturday. The attack was claimed by terrorist group Islamic State: "Two fighters from Islamic State detonated explosive belts at a gathering of Shiites in the city of Kabul in Afghanistan," said a brief statement on the group's Amaq news agency.

A freelance journalist working for BBC Afghan said blood and body parts were everywhere, with debris strewn around.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are multiple, powerful reasons why Afghanistan has earned the title "the graveyard of empires."

The only guy who was able to hold on to it was Alexander the Great, and even through a series of elaborate alliances and marriages, that was only for 3 years.

Almost 15 years in to this US/NATO occupation, there is absolutely no military metric by which one could possibly judge this occupation as having created a "military victory."

The Afghani people are no more "pacified" than they were the day they got invaded; there is no true democracy, and neither the US nor NATO can protect the people from either the Taliban or ISIS.

The only non-brain-dead option the US government and NATO have right now, would to be to evacuate their soldiers and hired mercs as safely as is possible, and leave the country.

Then, negotiate with whatever government is left standing for the pipeline and mineral rights.

Of course, that...would be logical.

In an exchange with a witness, he shouted: "Because of you I was bullied for seven years.

“And now I have to buy a gun to shoot you.”

Comments on social media also indicate bullying may have led to the attack, with one message board user claiming: “I know this f*****g guy, his name is Ali Sonboly.

“He was in my class back then, we always mobbed him. And he always told us that he would kill us.”

Munich gunman was treated for depression; ‘no evidence’ of IS link

There is “no evidence” that the suspected gunman who killed nine people in a shooting spree at a Munich shopping mall on Friday had links to the Islamic State group, local police chief Hubertus Andrae said Saturday.

Munich prosecutors said Saturday that the shooter in the attack — named in the media as 18-year-old Iranian-German national Ali Sonboly, the son of a taxi driver — had been in psychiatric care and treated for depression. The attack appears to be a “classic shooting rampage” and not terrorism, the prosecutor said. Police said investigators suspect the gunman was “deranged.”

Ben Carson, in Line at the Airport: The Liberal Media Made It Sound as If I’d Called Hillary a Devil-Worshipper

CLEVELAND—Right now, thousands of giddy Republicans and bedraggled journalists are making their way out of town. A little while ago, I found myself in the TSA security line behind Ben Carson, where I had the chance to ask him the question that’s been on my mind since his speech on Tuesday, when he said, apropos of Hillary Clinton, “Are we willing to elect as president somebody who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer?” I wanted to know: What is the connection between Clinton and the devil?

Carson thought this was an unfair question. He had merely said that Clinton was influenced by someone, Saul Alinsky, who praised Lucifer. (In an epigraph to his 1971 book Rules for Radicals, Alinsky described Lucifer as “the first radical known to man.”) The liberal media, Carson said, had twisted it to suggest that he’d called Clinton a devil-worshipper.>>>

Armageddon Approaches : Paul Craig Roberts on US-NATO vs. Russia.

Americans need to wake up to the dangerous situation that Washington has created, but I doubt they will. Most wars happen without the public’s knowledge until they happen. The main function of the American left-wing is to serve as a bogyman with which to scare conservatives about the country’s loss of morals, and the main function of conservatives is to create fear and hysteria about immigrants, Muslims, and Russians. There is no sign that Congress is aware of approaching Armageddon, and the media consists of propaganda.

Trump Enrages the War Party : How sweet is that!

Yet Trump has turned the tables on the War Party: it is they who are being put on the defensive by his relentless assault, and his willingness to say what most normal people are thinking. His disregard for the pieties of the Beltway, his contempt for the self-proclaimed “experts,” and his ability to mobilize the American people behind a foreign policy that puts them first, is the best thing that has happened to this country in the modern era.

Report: Murdoch Son 'Horrified by Potential Trump Presidency' Forced Out Roger Ailes

Roger Ailes was reportedly forced out of Fox News by Rupert Murdoch's Trump-hating son.

Gabriel Sherman, whom Slate describes as "the nation's foremost Fox News beat reporter," yesterday told Slate: "James Murdoch is, by my reporting, extremely turned off and horrified by the concept of a Trump presidency, and he sees the politics of the right-wing populism fueled by Fox News as a catalyst that allowed Trump to become the Republican nominee. He's been wanting to get Ailes out."

Gretchen Carlson's post-firing "sexual harassment" suit was the perfect excuse. Ailes, despite supporting Megyn Kelly, is said to be friends with Trump and talk to him regularly. Now, he's been forced out at Fox News by Rupert Murdoch's hyper-leftist son just some three months before the election.

“It Is Really Hard To Argue With Trump About This”: Face It, America Is In Decline

America is in decline. There are some that still attempt to deny this, but the reason why Donald Trump’s campaign slogan has so strongly resonated with the American people is because deep inside most of us realize that America is not as great as it used to be. Our economy is a mess, we are 19 trillion dollars in debt, our infrastructure is crumbling, crime is on the rise, moral decay is all around us, other countries don’t respect us as much anymore, and our nation is the most divided that it has been in decades. Anyone that believes that America is better than it has ever been in 2016 is either completely delusional or simply has not been paying attention.

Pokemon Go - A company with a questionable pedigree, sporting the next step in technology already used to destabilize and destroy countries, has wrapped its latest creation in decidedly disarming cartoon characters

With Google's cozy relationship with the US State Department amply established, and John Hanke's history with both, as well as Niantic - the developer of Pokemon Go - the general public's interest should at the very least be piqued. Though Niantic was officially "spun-off" from Google, it is difficult if not impossible to establish what connections Hanke maintains formally or informally with either of his former employers and what role this new "interactive tracking application" may play in experiments or implementations related to US domestic and/or foreign policy.

But if one's suspicion has yet to be aroused, they should consider the Niantic AR game that preceded Pokemon Go - Ingress.

It too is an interactive location-tracking application, but its premise was decidedly darker and had less potential for wider public uptake, particularly overseas.

Nice – 14th July – Lie Propaganda in Overdrive – Murder Is the New Normal

Now that the French Secret Services and their foreign associates have read the accounts of ‘false flag’ suspicion in the non-mainstream media, the French Government had to resort immediately to all sorts of doubt deviating maneuvers.

- The truck driven through the Bastille Day celebrating masses on Boulevard des Anglais, suddenly did not break through the barricade protecting the strip as a pedestrian area for the celebration, but it entered through an unprotected side-street. The ‘drive’ was allegedly prepared days in advance, even with dry runs, according to street cameras and telephone conversations between Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel (MLB), the driver of the truck, and a bunch of friends, whom he also asked to supply him with weapons. Strangely, the videos and telephone conversations emerged just days later.

19.4 Trillion Dollars In Debt – We Have Added 1.1 Trillion Dollars A Year To The National Debt Under Obama

We have added an average of 1.1 trillion dollars a year to the national debt under Obama, and we still have about six more months to go. Unfortunately, this Ponzi scheme cannot go on forever and a day of reckoning is coming. And when it arrives, the pain that it is going to cause for ordinary Americans is going to be far greater than most of us would dare to imagine.

Washington Post: Obama Lies Again

It’s anyone’s guess whether Obama or Clinton is ahead in their apparent race to tell the most lies. The good news for America is that Obama has only a few more months to rack up his tally while in the White House.

America Needs a Good, Old-Fashioned Economic Depression

The central bankers’ ability to defy economic gravity may, at long last, be coming to an end. Even the radical Keynesian, Richard Koo has recognized the outrage of NIRP, which he recently described as “an act of desperation born out of despair over the inability of quantitative easing and inflation targeting to produce the desired results… the failure of monetary easing symbolizes crisis in macroeconomics."

WTF: School Bans Clapping Because Some People Are Too “Sensitive,” Will Allow “Silent Cheers” Instead

Kids will be “free” to “punch the air, pull excited faces and wriggle about on the spot” — that is, of course, until punching the air is banned for promoting violence, pulling excited faces gets banned for offending someone who gets offended when faces are pulled, and wriggling is officially classified as a “microaggression”.

Retired Lawman Challenges Corrupt Sitting Sheriff in Council, Idaho

Tom Watts is running for Sheriff in Adams County, Idaho, against Sheriff Ryan Zollman. Zollman employs and constantly defends deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland, who shot and killed 62-year-old rancher Jack Yantis on the road in front of his ranch last November 1st. Watts is a lifelong lawman who never had a complaint filed against him. His campaign website states, in part, "I proudly served my community as a law enforcement officer for over 20 years in Nevada without ever having a citizen file a complaint against me. I have also worked private security for mining companies in that area. I moved to Adams County in 2012. It has been my pleasure to simply be a part of this community, and it was my intention to retire from law enforcement. I have been moved to run for this office by the serious issues facing our county, and our nation."

The Unavoidable Fall of the American Empire

Is America getting worse or better? Is America going to be “great” again, whatever that has meant since the 1980s? But more to the point, what difference does any of it make? Let’s be honest here about the so-called future of the United States of America. Since the dawn of what humanity likes to call “civilization” (i.e. the ability of a government to rob honest people under the guise of taxation), very few governments/nations/kingdoms have survived more than a few hundred years. Now, the United States has had a pretty good run. We’ve done a lot and accomplished a lot, not the least of which is inventing the ability to destroy the entire planet.

Pentagon to No Longer Label Independent Journalists as Spies

The Pentagon removed from its manual threat of punishment for independent journalists who cover hostilities from both sides of the conflict line.

OSCOW (Sputnik) — The Pentagon revised its Law of War manual on Friday to remove threat of punishment for independent journalists who cover hostilities from both sides of the conflict line.

The update came a year after the US military faced a barrage of criticism from press organizations for labelling journalists as potential spies and saboteurs, in its first ever legal handbook released for personnel last June.

"The changes to the manual reflect the department’s concerted effort to address those concerns and clarify specific language," Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement.

Philadelphia airport workers plan to strike during DNC

The fight to raise the minimum wage is headed to the doorstep of the Democratic National Convention, with local airport workers planning to go on strike when delegates descend upon Philadelphia next week.

Roughly 1,000 workers, including those who handle luggage, attend to passengers in wheelchairs and clean plane cabins, are expected to not show up for work in order to call attention to their demands for a $15 minimum wage and the ability to join the Service Employees International Union.

Learning What It’s Like To Be Serfs?

“We are heartbroken … It’s painful to wake up in the morning to know some of your brothers … have been killed.”

You might suppose the speaker to be a relative of Philando Castile or Alton Sterling, or some other black American serf (not because cops don’t kill whites—they do; in fact, most of their victims are white, even if a disproportionate number aren’t. But whites don’t typically speak of “brothers”).
