Harrowing dashboard camera footage captures escape from supercharged Alberta wildfires the size of New York City that have ravaged Canadian towns, caused 88,000 to evacuate and are being battled by over 1,100 firefighters

Incredible dash cam footage has captured a man's terrifying drive through the supercharged wildfires tearing through Alberta, Canada, which have forced 88,000 people to evacuate their homes.

More than 1,110 firefighters, 145 helicopters, 138 pieces of heavy equipment and 22 air tankers were fighting a total of 49 wildfires that now cover land the size of New York City. Seven of the blazes are deemed out of control.

On Wednesday, one resident in the devastated oil sands city of Fort McMurray filmed the moment he had to drive across town through flying embers and black-out smoke.

Cars can be seen veering from lane-to-lane to avoid the flames as gusts of wind threaten to push burning trees over. Though it was filmed at 2pm, the sky is as dark as night.

Judicial Watch Lawsuit Uncovers More Hillary Clinton Emails Withheld from State Department

Judicial Watch today released new State Department emails (one batch of 103 pages, the second of 138 pages) that again appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com system until March 18, 2009.

Judicial Watch recently released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails.

The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response a court order in a May 5,2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department, after it failed to respond to a March 18 FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). The lawsuit seeks:

America’s Legacy Will Be Its Downfall: Empire Always Comes Home

Op-Ed by Brandon Turbeville

As Western media outlets and the U.S. State Department attempt to gin up public sentiment surrounding alleged bombings of alleged hospitals that may or may not have even existed and that, even if they did, were nothing more than field hospitals for terrorists, the Syrian people are suffering under unimaginable conditions. These true victims, of course, are completely ignored by the same outlets that cry and pine over the deaths and setbacks of jihadists, rapists, torturers, and murderers.

Amidst the constant propaganda and dehumanizing method of reporting “news” in the West, both the humanity and the wishes of the Syrian people are lost completely...

US Change of Command in Europe Signals Escalation of Anti-Russia Threats

Washington used this week’s change of command of its European military forces as an opportunity to further escalate US military threats against Russia.

Speaking at the ceremony at the US European Command (EUCOM) headquarters in Germany Tuesday in which outgoing commander Gen. Philip Breedlove handed the reins to his successor, Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter declared that the Pentagon had to “prioritize deterrence” against Russia and accused Moscow of “nuclear saber-rattling.”

Carter reiterated the Pentagon’s plans to deploy an American armored brigade combat team near the Russian border “on a rotational but persistently present basis.” He also pointed to the Obama administration’s quadrupling of funding for the European Reassurance Initiative to $3.4 billion, which he said would “increase the amount of war fighting equipment, as well as the number of US forces” deployed in Eastern Europe.

Congressional Republicans Line Up Behind Trump

A top party leader, a committee chairman with a deep understanding of national security, and an aspiring senator endorsed Donald Trump shortly after he secured his place as the de facto 2016 GOP presidential nominee.

It's as sure a sign as any that the party is falling in line behind the New York businessman as he prepares to face off against Hillary Clinton in the general election. Even if their hearts are not in it.

"I have committed to supporting the nominee chosen by Republican voters, and Donald Trump, the presumptive nominee, is now on the verge of clinching that nomination," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a tepid statement in support of Trump

Syria Redux: U.S. Government supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Enfield Rifles, military planes & tanks to Slaughter tens of thousands of Mexican Freedom Fighters

Everyone knows that the U.S, Israel & their allies fund, arm, protect, and created ISIS, who kills untold numbers of Christians and others. The U.S. government has been doing this for centuries. This is a classic article about the 'Cristero War' in Mexico, which took place in the 1920s and 1930s. Even Former Mexican President Vicente Fox admits that the freemasonic-led government in Mexico had outlawed Catholicism, and the rebel groups of freedom fighters, called the Cristeros, took up arms against their corrupt government. Their battle cry was Viva Cristo Rey!", which means "Long Live Christ the King." U.S. President Hoover aided the Mexican military, providing 10 MILLION ROUNDS of ammo, 10,000 Enfield Rifles, military planes & tanks to slaughter the freedom fighters. This is in Congressional records and covered extensively by the NY Times.

Massive Earthquake Looming As Pressure Builds On San Andreas Fault: “Wound Very, Very Tight”

Scientists have issued a dire warning that Southern California and the Los Angeles area could be in the path of a major earthquake of 7.0 magnitude or greater.

Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach.
[…]

The devastating potential of the fault became clear with a 1857 temblor, which had an estimated magnitude of 7.9… The quake was so powerful that the soil liquefied, causing trees as far away as Stockton to sink. Trees were also uprooted west of Fort Tejon. The shaking lasted 1 to 3 minutes.

HILLARY THE SPY?

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

San Andreas Fault is "Ready to Go" According to Experts

For decades Californians have been warned repeatedly that the “big one” is coming. Someday a massive earthquake is going rip through the San Andreas Fault, possibly causing thousands of casualties and billions of dollars in damage. So far nothing that serious has occurred in recent memory. With the exception of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the state has been largely spared from any serious tectonic disaster.

But according to some experts we may not have to wait much longer, especially in regards to the southern portion of the San Andreas fault near San Diego and Los Angeles. That’s because it’s been so long since this fault has had an earthquake. The pressure is building there. The fault typically has a major earthquake every 100 years or so, but this particular portion hasn’t experienced a major quake since 1857, which was a magnitude 7.9.

NATO on trade, in Europe and Asia, is doomed

Everything civil society across Europe – for at least three years – has been debating, and fearing, is confirmed; this is a sophisticated, toxic US-led corporate racket, a concerted assault across the spectrum, from the environment and animal welfare to labor rights and internet privacy. In a nutshell; it’s all about the US corporate galaxy pushing the EU to lower – or abase – a range of consumer protections.

Hardball, predictably, is the name of the game. Washington no less than threatened to block EU car exports to force the EU to buy genetically engineered fruits and vegetables.

Known internally as “news curators,” the contractors say they were given the ability to “deactivate” or blacklist any trending topic if it wasn’t being covered by minimally “three traditional news sources.” “A topic was often blacklisted if it didn’t have at least three traditional news sources covering it, but otherwise the protocol was murky—meaning a curator could ostensibly blacklist a topic without a particularly good reason for doing so,” Nunez writes, although curators insist the system wasn’t abused.

He continued with an indirect attack on the «military-industrial complex», blaming the general excess of weapons in the world.

The Best Way To Keep 'President Trump' Safe Is To Pick Ron Paul As His VP?

I think that Trump's best option would be to choose Ron Paul for a running mate. If there's anyone the elites hate more than Trump, it's Paul. Trump has said that he likes Ron Paul's ideas in the past. Paul as VP would keep Trump very safe from those who might otherwise endanger him.

Bobby Knight Schools Snarky Anti-Trump CNN Host John Berman

CNN host John Berman tried to take down legendary basketball coach and Trump supporter Bobby Knight but instead ended up getting schooled.

During his interview yesterday, Knight told Berman one of the reasons he supports Trump is because he thinks "there will never be a Benghazi in a Donald Trump administration. "

He said if Trump was in the White House he "would have made sure" that "nothing would have happened" to the "four Americans who died at Benghazi."

John Berman, who was trying to feign impartiality, responded by talking to him like a 4-year-old child, "I wonder what difference Donald Trump could have made there... but I understand you're making a point there, so I appreciate that."

Trump: Muslim Migration "Destroying Europe, I'm Not Gonna Let That Happen to The U.S."

Fresh off his massive victory in Indiana, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump told MSNBC's Morning Joe earlier today that he would stick by his controversial policy on Muslim immigration because the migrant crisis is "destroying Europe".

Trump's proposal to place a temporary halt on Muslim immigration to the United States was perhaps his most incendiary of the campaign, but the New York billionaire shows no signs of walking it back.

Asked if he still believed "Muslims should be banned from entering the country until we can figure out what's going on," Trump said that he didn't care if the policy hurt his chances in a general election.

Moody's: Despite reforms, European Union remains vulnerable to any future crisis

Moody's: London, 04 May 2016 -- While reforms have strengthened the European Union in recent years, it remains vulnerable to any future shocks, leaving governments and other issuers of debt exposed to negative credit implications, Moody's Investors Service said in a report today.

The report, "European Union: Significant Political Change, Yet Economic Vulnerabilities Remain", is available on www.moodys.com. Moody's subscribers can access this report using the link at the end of this press release. The research is an update to the markets and does not constitute a rating action.

Since the global financial crisis and the European sovereign debt crisis, the EU has made progress in strengthening its institutions, including the establishment of the European Stability Mechanism, the European Banking Authority and other structures.

However, institutional reform and the euro area's integration are unfinished and have left the EU exposed to shocks and downside credit risks.

European Union Accused of 'Schizophrenia' Over Greek Bailout Conditions

A group of eight European lawmakers have said that the third Greek bailout conditions - which call for Athens to impose deep austerity measures of its people - reflects the "schizophrenia" and "absurd strategy" of its creditors.

As part of its third bailout agreement with its creditors — the European Commission, the European Central Bank, (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), known collectively as the 'Troika' — Greece has been forced to raise taxes, improve tax collection, cut state spending and impose severe changes to its state benefit system, in return for bailout money.

EU was designed to be United States of Europe

EU was designed to be United States of Europe, Brussels founder claims in shock interview
THE European Union was created in order to become a "United States of Europe" according to one of the founders of the 28-member bloc.

Georges Berthoin, a surviving member of the European coal and steel commission cabinet, has revealed the initial idea of the EU was to create a closer union.

The cabinet was the first step towards a federation of Europe and set up in 1952.

But the EU was set up as the European Economic Community in 1957 and seen as a trade agreement between countries in the continent.

But Mr Berthoin has revealed the long-term plan was to create a state resembling the US.
