Billionaire Branson Survives 'Near Death' High-Speed Bike Crash In Caribbean

Billionaire British business man Richard Branson said he thought he was about to die as he crashed head-first while cycling in the British Virgin Islands.

The 66-year-old owner of Virgin, who is worth almost £4 bn (us$5.3bn) didn’t exactly have a near-death experience, but did suffer torn ligaments and a cracked cheek after being taken to Miami for X-rays and scans following the accident on Monday.

World's oldest human being discovered in Indonesia at the age of 145. Mbah Gotho has official identification showing his birth date to be December 1870

The world’s oldest man has been named as Indonesian Mbah Gotho, who is 145 years old, with documentation that says he was born in 1870.
Mr Gotho said he began preparing for his death in 1992, even having a gravestone made, but 24 years later he is still alive.

Just 90 companies are to blame for most climate change, this 'carbon accountant' says

Last month, geographer Richard Heede received a subpoena from Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX), chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Smith, a climate change doubter, became concerned when the attorneys general of several states launched investigations into whether ExxonMobil had committed fraud by sowing doubts about climate change even as its own scientists knew it was taking place. The congressman suspected a conspiracy between the attorneys general and environmental advocates, and he wanted to see all the communications among them. Predictably, his targets included advocacy organizations such as Greenpeace, 350.org, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. They also included Heede, who works on his own aboard a rented houseboat on San Francisco Bay in California.

CBO: Federal Debt to Hit $28.2 Trillion Over Next Decade

At the end of this year, outstanding federal debt is expected to climb to $19.4 trillion and to rise by $8.8 trillion in the next ten years. The federal government’s budget deficit, which is the difference between how much money the government spends and how much money it takes in through tax collection, will be $590 billion by the end of 2016, $152 billion more than the previous year. Government spending is projected to increase by 5 percent, or $178 billion, while government revenue is projected to increase by less than 1 percent, or $26 billion.

How Central Banks Are Bleeding the Middle Class Dry

The Western welfare states know many ways to get rid of their enormous sovereign debt — at great cost of their citizens. Once the debt burden becomes unbearable, the government simply reforms the currency. Then, the government debt will be “adjusted” with the private wealth of the citizens. This is when the citizens will notice that their government’s sovereign debt is their own debt. But the government does not always need to make use of these large torture devices. More subtle ways, such as financial repression, are possible.

FYI : Hillary Will Abolish the Second Amendment!

Donald Trump was widely criticized by media, Democrats, and even some Republicans after he made a joke regarding Second Amendment remedies to Hillary Clinton’s plan to “essentially abolish” the Second Amendment. -- As if “reporters,” commentators, and politicians were all reading from the same script, they consistently pointed out that Clinton had no such intentions – in spite of the fact that this is exactly what she intends to do.

The President’s Leash

Can you imagine Hillary Clinton as President, with Chuck Schumer as the Senate Majority Leader, and Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House? -- A Trump presidency would be a four-year long battle with occasional, carefully worked out victories. A Hillary presidency would be an unrestricted dictatorship, which would unquestionably be absolutely corrupt.

Venezuela Cracks Down On Guns — Here’s Why We Pay Attention

In Venezuela, their government is so afraid of them that they are willing to send their police officers out to round up and destroy any remaining guns left. The government is also willing to force them into indentured servitude to work in the fields. Is that a future we’re willing to have in the United States?

Raid on police corruption whistleblower was unconstitutional, court rules

Police officer Wayne Anderson took a risk when he shared evidence of corruption in the Terrebonne Sheriff’s Office. He was finally vindicated, however, when the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeals ruled a raid on his home was unconstitutional.

A unanimous decision handed down from the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeals found that a raid on Anderson’s home was unconstitutional, as the rationale for it contained a fatal flaw.

Scott Adams: The Mental Vote

I have a hypothesis that many voters have already voted against Trump – in their minds – months before the first absentee votes are cast. The way that works is that a pollster calls someone who is considering voting for Trump – perhaps the week after the Khan controversy – and that voter decides to punish Trump for being offensive that week. So the wannabe-Trump-supporter “votes” against Trump. But only to the pollster.

Hillary Clinton’s “Humanitarian Interventionists” Prepare for War in Syria

Defense One, the online magazine published by the self-described “neocon guy" David Bradley, has called for a no-fly zone in Syria. Evelyn N. Farkas, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a NATO operation, writes the United States is “morally complicit in the worsening humanitarian catastrophe that is Syria,” but not for the reason you might think. The United States is guilty because it has not intervened more directly. “We should be ready to enforce [a no-fly zone] through military force and communicate this directly to the Russian government. We should seek U.N. Security Council approval, but be prepared to proceed without it.”

THE CASE FOR DONALD TRUMP

Anyone who knows my writing and background knows I am not a conservative and certainly have little use for the right wing anywhere.
But they will also know that I despise war and that I believe America’s establishment has brought moral degradation to the country’s international affairs. It has also brought degradation to America’s own people, completely ignoring their welfare for decades, regarding them only as a herd from which to solicit votes with television advertising and from whom to collect taxes.

Mugabe Orders Arrest Of "Rats We Call Athletes" After Zimbabwe Wins No Olympic Medals

“We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) why do you go to waste our money... If we needed people to just go to Brazil to sing our national anthem and hoist our flag, we would have sent some of the beautiful girls and handsome guys from University of Zimbabwe to represent us."

Hillary Clinton Enters The Media Wars

When I wrote the above, I had no idea that two days later Hillary Clinton would deliver a speech in Nevada specifically targeting a nebulous movement referred to as the “alt-right,” as well as several of the prominent websites associated with it. Never in a million years did I think Hillary herself would so publicly enter the Media Wars.

The speech itself was pretty bizarre. Although I found her effective on several fronts, I believe it will ultimately backfire by providing free publicity and fame to many of those she intended to demonize.

Scott Adams: The Face of Persuasion

As regular readers of this blog know, both Trump and Clinton have chosen fear as their persuasion tool. Trump wants you to fear terrorists and criminals because he thinks he can make a persuasive case that he’s the solution to those fears. Clinton asks us to fear Trump himself, offering herself as the solution to that fear.

So which fear is stronger, persuasion-wise?

SAN GABRIEL, Calif.—Only two athletes in history have won medals in six consecutive Olympic Games.

Only two.

The first athlete is Armin Zöggeler, a carabiniere from the Tyrolean Alps who has won two gold medals, one silver medal, and three bronzes during the 1994 through 2014 Winter Games.

The other six-in-six Olympian is a woman from Southern California.

Louisiana Officials Demand That Self-Reliant Locals Stop Surviving the Flood Without Permission

Around the world, governments have recently been issuing an unsettling call for their citizens to become more self-reliant. Just this week, the governments of both Germany and Czechoslovakia warned that people should be prepared for ““be prepared for the worst case possible scenario.” But here in the United States, just the opposite is happening. Our government seems to have an unquenchable thirst for cracking down on those who take responsibility for themselves. There is an abundance of evidence of this in Louisiana. The southern state has been hit with the worst flooding in over 500 years.

The Future of War Looks Like Hollywood: “Terminator-Like Machines to Fight in Battlefields”

The future might be unrecognizable, and the battlefield may soon become a place where humans don’t stand a chance.

The future of war will involve autonomous robots instead of humans, according to Air Force General and Vice Chair of the Joint of Chiefs of Staff Paul Selva, who warned enemies could build “Terminator”-like machines to fight in battlefields.

“I’m talking about a wholly-robotic system that decides whether or not, at the point of decision, it’s going to do lethal ops.”

A radioactive kitty litter 'bomb'

A typo and a bag of organic kitty litter may end up costing United States taxpayers more than $2 billion in nuclear waste cleanup, according to a new report by Ralph Vartabedian at the Los Angeles Times.

Back in February 2014, a drum of nuclear waste burst open inside the cavernous Waste Isolation Pilot Project (WIPP), which is drilled out of a salt deposit nearly half a mile below the deserts of Carlsbad, New Mexico.

The US Department of Energy (DOE), which funds the company that runs the nuclear waste dump, quickly suspended operations and launched an investigation to figure out the cause.

drum 68660 wipp doe labeled Drum 68660, which burst in WIPP nuclear waste dump. DOE/WIPP

In their 277-page report, investigators determined the blast vaporized nearly 7.5 lbs of the material inside a single barrel, labeled "Drum 68660." That material included some radioactive isotopes of americium, plutonium, and uranium — byproducts of Cold War-era nuclear weapons production.

Scott Adams: Finding the Political Bottom

. . . . Clinton just insulted 40% of American voters by calling them racists. Clinton literally – and publicly – turned on her own citizens.

Trump, by contrast, has attacked only professionals who are in the cage fight against him, including politicians on both sides, and the media. Judge Curiel is a professional (in a legal battle context). The reporter with the bad arm is a professional. Mr. Khan was acting as a professional because he entered the cage, armed. If you’re a professional – and can defend yourself – Trump doesn’t mind coming after you with a flamethrower.

But Clinton’s Alt-Right speech did not target professionals. Clinton attacked American citizens. Lots of them.

Biden Met by Snubs as He Seeks to Mollify Turkey’s Angry Erdogan

From the minute he stepped off the plane on Wednesday, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s trip to Turkey seemed ill-fated.

Intended to smooth relations frayed by last month’s botched coup, Biden’s visit instead showcased acrimony with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkey sent low-ranking officials -- including Ankara’s deputy mayor -- to greet Biden at the airport. And even before the vice president’s visit ended, the Daily Sabah, a pro-Erdogan newspaper, declared that "Biden wasted a trip, Turkey wasted time."

Biden -- the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Turkey since the coup -- was apologetic and conciliatory during his joint news conference with Erdogan. As the vice president spoke, the Turkish leader sat back in his chair, stone-faced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF President Obama thought for even a millisecond, that this stunt of dispatching Biden, and not extraditing Imam Gulen, was going to eradicate Erdogan's strong belief that the US government was complicit in the failed coup against him, he was (again, as usual) straight out wrong.

While governments have recently been issuing an unsettling call for their citizens to become more self-reliant, just the opposite is happening. Our government seems to have an unquenchable thirst for cracking down on those who take responsibility for themselves. There is an abundance of evidence of this in Louisiana after the flood.

This massive disaster was all but ignored by the mainstream media, since it didn’t fit the current agenda of divisiveness and racial tension. So what did the folks in Louisiana do?

They rolled up their sleeves and took care of business. And that is when the government said, “Oh, no. We can’t have that.”

1/3 OF ABEDIN EMAILS 100% REDACTED

Judicial Watch’s release this week of 725 pages of State Department emails involving Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin demonstrates the Obama administration considers a large percentage of the emails sent through Clinton’s private server too sensitive for Congress or the American public to read.

Of the 725 pages, more than 250 pages were 100 percent redacted, many with “PAGE DENIED” stamped in bold.

Judicial Watch said the new cache includes previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Abedin “provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state.”

Judicial Watch added that in many instances, the preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.

Now more than ever, Bill and Hill are “Partners in Crime.” Jerome Corsi reveals “The Clintons’ scheme to monetize the White House for personal profit.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The criminality of the Clinton Cartel knows no bounds; and this behaviour by Hillary will not stop, should she win/steal the White House.

HLN DROPS ‘DR. DREW’ AFTER HE QUESTIONS HILLARY'S HEALTH

HLN has canceled its appointment with “Dr. Drew.”

The current-affairs show, hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky (“Celebrity Rehab,” radio’s “Loveline”), has been axed after 5?¹/? years. It will be replaced — at least for the time being — with reruns of “Forensic Files” and CNN originals (documentaries, etc.).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to our world, Dr. Pinsky.

Ask a logical question about one DC's "Chosen", and this is the result of that publicly asking that question; I know this, because that is what happened to my husband, Michael, after he asked some very logical questions about the alleged "suicide" of Vincent Foster.

I hope that your financial management people have been doing a really incredible job for you with your money; because you most probably will never work in US media, ever again.

Expect your alleged "friends" to drop contact with you as though you are Kryptonite; phone calls will not get returned, and if they do, it will be with a very frosty "never contact me again."

Expect that the same elements which got you fired will attempt to poison your entire family against you.

Oh, and did I mention the death threats?!?

That was a common factor in our lives after Mike got fired, then shunned by the computer animation industry he assisted in creating.

And not only was he fired from the job he was on, for utterly no reason; every computer animation house in Southern California was told that his entire demo real was stolen from other artists.

This is how the Clinton Cartel operates; slam down anyone whose narrative does not agree with their public narrative, then destroy their careers. It is one of their most common tactics.

And part of me, Doctor, is amazed that you just didn't see this coming, as the potential result of your having publicly expressed concern over her health.

TOP PRIVATE PRISON FIRM TRIES TO PREVENT PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF DOCUMENTS EXPOSING PRISON OPERATIONS

Private prison operator Corrections Corporation of America is trying to seal from public view documents in a lawsuit that claim female visitors to a Tennessee prison were forced to undergo strip searches to prove they were menstruating.

Three women have accused the company of violating their rights by forcing them to expose their genitals to guards after they tried to bring sanitary pads or tampons into South Central Correctional Facility, about 85 miles southwest of Nashville. One woman said her three children had to witness the search.

Protective orders in the case allow documents that could pose a security risk to the prison to be filed under seal. Each side is accusing the other of violating those orders.

Attorneys for the women accuse the private prison company of sealing documents where no genuine security concern exists in order to protect itself from embarrassment, violating the public's right to access court proceedings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet that this suit will ever move forward; private prisons have become one of the largest block of political donors in this country, ever.

JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF NEW CLINTON BENGHAZI EMAILS

The court order comes after the State Department were forced to admit that it has found Benghazi-related documents from among the 14,900 Clinton emails and attachments uncovered by the FBI that Hillary had deleted and withheld from authorities.

Yahoo News reports:

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has been criticized for using an unauthorized private email system run from a server in the basement of her home while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, a decision she says was wrong and that she regrets.

The issue has hung over her campaign for the White House and raised questions among voters about her trustworthiness.

Judge William Dimitrouleas of the U.S. District Court in southern Florida made his order in response to a request by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which is suing the State Department for Clinton-era records under freedom of information laws.

Spokesmen for Clinton did not respond to requests for comment.

UBS WHISTLEBLOWER EXPOSES 'POLITICAL PROSTITUTION' ALL THE WAY UP TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

UBS, the world's largest wealth manager, is facing embarrassment over fresh revelations going back to the tax investigation that led to the collapse of Swiss banking secrecy. Two significant events are looming before UBS. The first is the possibility of a public trial in France, featuring UBS whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld, concerning historic tax evasion allegedly orchestrated by the bank. That could happen this year.

The other is the publication this October of Birkenfeld's scathing new book, Lucifer's Banker, which covers his time at UBS.

The tax evasion controversy, which was first highlighted in 2005, subsequently involved the US Department of Justice, the State Department and Internal Revenue Service. It was prompted by disclosures made by Birkenfeld that UBS had helped wealthy US citizens evade taxes using offshore financial vehicles and Swiss-numbered accounts.

In 2009, UBS paid $780m (£588m, €693m) to US authorities to avoid prosecution.

DESPOTS “DONATE” TO CLINTON FOUNDATION, RECEIVE WEAPONS FROM HILLARY: LEAKED DOCS

Newly leaked documents provide further details on what Harper’s magazine calls the Clinton family’s “slush fund”, the Clinton Foundation.
As Secretary of State (the US government position chiefly responsible for coordinating US international arms trafficking), Hillary Clinton accepted millions of dollars in “donations” from the dictator of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa, then increased US weapons sales to him by 137% during his brutal, Saudi-backed crackdown on pro-democracy protestors.

The crackdown, as reported by Amnesty International, has included murder and child-torture. In 2009, a Clinton State Department official stated that al Khalifa’s weapons coordinator was a “good friend of ours”.

Within Hillary Clinton’s increase in arms trafficking to the dictator of Bahrain was a 10,000% increase in transfers of “toxicological agents”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, Clinton's "great friend", Prince Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa, whose regime has been killing, and torturing not only peaceful Shiite demonstrators, but also torturing and killing the first responders, trying to save their lives after they had been shot or teargassed.

Clinton was very much Prince Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa's enabler on this rampage of murder, torture, and suppression, by approving the transfer of weapons and toxicological agents, under her watch as Secretary of State.

In fact, a great campaign slogan for her right now would be: "Hillary Clinton; trust her to do for American what she did for the Shiites in Bahrain!!"

The Sunni al Khalifa monarchy has been marginalizing their Shiite population for a very long time, and the outcome has been devastating for Bahrain's Shiite population.

As reported this July at www.independent.com:

Once considered one of the more liberal Arab monarchies, Bahrain is turning into a police state as vicious and arbitrary as Egypt

So far, the protests in Bahrain have been relatively peaceful. However, the late President Kennedy said it best; "Where peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

But of course, Hillary has the morals of a dead tree stump; she didn't care as to the long term effects in Bahrain, as long as she got the money.

Apple is under fire for “excessive overtime” and illegal working conditions in another Chinese factory

Rival Foxconn’s horror stories and its own controversial past should have been a wake up call for Pegatron, the Taiwanese electronics company manufacturing the iPhone 7.

Instead, a recent report finds, workers in Pegatron’s Shanghai factory have been excessively overworked over the past year. Pegatron’s Shanghai workers—up to 100,000 of them during the peak season—were forced to work “excessive and illegal overtime” according to China Labor Watch. In the past year, the average worker racked up 80 hours of overtime a month. Over 62% of workers worked more than 100 overtime hours in March 2016. One worker worked 109 overtime hours, the New York-based non-profit writes, which works out to over 67 hours a week.

Trump vs. Hillary: A Summation

The US presidential election this November will tell whether a majority of the US population is irredeemably stupid. If voters elect Hillary, we will know that Americans are stupid beyond redemption.

All we know about Trump is that the oligarchs, who sent America’s jobs overseas, who flooded the country with difficult-to-assimilate immigrants, who destroyed public education, who bailed out Wall Street and the “banks too big to fail,” who sacrificed American homeowners and retirees living on a fixed income, who intend to privatize both Social Security and Medicare, who have given the public killer cops, relentless violations of privacy, the largest prison population in the world, and destroyed the US Constitution in order to increase executive power over the American people, are violently opposed to Trump. This opposition should tell us that Trump is the person we want in the Oval Office.

4-minute comedy: War on Terror causes terror so you have more war. Is America ‘too far gone?’ ‘It’s not normal. What have you done? You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should stop it!’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Steve Hughes’ 4-minutes:

Real-world Earth is a tragic-comedy that includes lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression, including “War on Terror” and OIL (Operation Iraqi Liberation).

War is terror, which causes more of what the US claims to be warring against.
Terror is not an enemy. Will terror surrender to end the war?
Corporate media report distractions, not news.
Such a condition: “It’s not normal. What have you done (about it)? You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should stop it!”

Steve also concludes, “America is too far gone.” Facts of a US rogue state that an objective observer would demand to be stopped to not be “too far gone”:

Terminal Economy: “Private Sector Will NEVER Recover…This Time, Replacing Humans Altogether”

The outlook from this global strategist at the Macquarie Group is beyond doom and gloom – it is a literal existential crisis.

“The private sector will never recover, it will never multiply money again,” he told Epoch Times in an interview. His main theme is the “declining return on humans,” which means that in today’s digital world, normal humans don’t grow productivity fast enough to justify more jobs and higher wages as the machines are taking over.

“There is no productivity on a global basis... and the state assumes more power, Shvets thinks countries will move toward fascism and communism again

Society News Doctors Sue Obama Administration for Forcing Them to Perform Gender Transition Procedures

Five states and a group of religiously-affiliated hospitals and physicians are suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that forces doctors to perform gender transition procedures on adults and children against their medical judgment.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Texas federal court, attempts to roll back a rule imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in May that expanded the interpretation of “sex” under the Affordable Care Act to include “gender identity.”

In doing so, the Obama administration added transgender people to the list of protected classes under the Affordable Care Act, which states that individuals can’t be denied certain federally-funded health benefits because of their “race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.”

The move was part of a broader push by President Barack Obama to further transgender rights in the U.S.

Sioux Blockade Succeeds In Halting Construction Of $3.8B Dakota Access Pipeline

Lakota Sioux protesters blockading the planned route of a $3.8 billion, four-state oil pipeline won a short-term victory on Wednesday, when the project’s developer, Energy Transfer Partners of Dallas, agreed to halt construction near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota for at least a week.

“The decision was made at this time to have the pipeline company workers pull out, for the safety of everybody,” Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirschmeier told journalists. “They’ll stop until we can get this resolved.”

The hiatus, which follows obstruction of the project by three Lakota Sioux tribes and their supporters, will last at least until a federal court in Washington, D.C., hears a challenge by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which seeks an injunction against federal agencies that approved the pipeline, on Aug. 24.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good for the Lakota Souix.

Far too many times, the needs and wishes of our Indigenous American People have been just thrown under the bus due to decisions by corporations driven by profits, and whose executives are in bed with the US judicial system.

My heart stands with these people on this issue.
