Blackwater’s Founder Is Under Investigation for Money Laundering, Ties to Chinese Intel, and Brokering Mercenary Services

RIK PRINCE, founder of the now-defunct mercenary firm Blackwater and current chairman of Frontier Services Group, is under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and other federal agencies for attempting to broker military services to foreign governments and possible money laundering, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the case.

What began as an investigation into Prince’s attempts to sell defense services in Libya and other countries in Africa has widened to a probe of allegations that Prince received assistance from Chinese intelligence to set up an account for his Libya operations through the Bank of China. The Justice Department, which declined to comment for this article, is also seeking to uncover the precise nature of Prince’s relationship with Chinese intelligence.

GABRIELLE GIFFORDS SHOOTER JARED LOUGHNER FILES $25M LAWSUIT, CLAIMS TO BE VICTIM OF US GOVT MK-ULTRA PROGRAM

The man serving a life sentence in the January 2011 shooting in Tucson that killed six and injured many others, including then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, has filed a $25 million lawsuit against her. Jared Loughner seeks $25 million in punitive damages against Giffords for "causing me emotion and psychological distress," according to the March 18 filing .

Debris found by Seattle man 'almost certainly' from MH370

On Wednesday, authorities in Australia confirmed the debris found earlier this month in Mozambique is "almost certainly" from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. You may remember, it was a Seattle man who made that discovery.

Blaine Gibson made international headlines a few weeks ago when he found what appeared to be a possible plane part on a sandbar off Mozambique.

He calls Seattle home and has owned a house here for several decades, but is currently traveling the world.

Gibson admits he's been fascinated with MH370 ever since it disappeared two years ago.

While visiting Mozambique, he chartered a boat and asked the crew to take him to a place where a lot of debris tends to wash ashore. It appears he picked the right place.

When he found the piece of debris with the words "No Step" printed on it, he turned it over to authorities right away.

Camille Paglia: This is why Trump’s winning, and why I won’t vote for Hillary

Given that most people, sequestered at their workplace, were unable to monitor the full range of responses throughout the day, the candidate who emerged on top was almost certainly Donald Trump. Despite his alarming enthusiasm for waterboarding and torture, Trump’s central campaign theme of securing the borders and more stringently vetting immigrants was strengthened by the events in Brussels, a historic city whose changing demographics he had already controversially warned about. Trump’s credibility would be enhanced if he treated the vital immigration issue in general policy terms rather than divisively singling out specific groups (Mexican, Muslim), the majority of whom are manifestly law-abiding.

GCHQ’s data-mining techniques revealed in new Snowden leak

A "Data Mining Research Problem Book" marked "top secret strap 1" has been leaked that details some of the key techniques used by GCHQ to sift through the huge volumes of data it pulls continuously from the Internet.

Originally obtained by Edward Snowden, the 96-page e-book has been published by Boing Boing, along with a second short document entitled "What's the worst that can happen?". Boing Boing describes this as "a kind of checklist for spies who are seeking permission to infect their adversaries' computers or networks with malicious software."

FEDERAL COURT SLAMS IRS IN TEA PARTY TARGETING CASE

On Thursday a federal appeals court finally ran out of patience with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and slammed the attorneys defending the agency. Judge Raymond Kethledge, writing for the three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, said:

Among the most serious allegations a federal court can address are that an executive agency [such as the IRS] has targeted citizens for mistreatment based on their political views. No citizen … should be targeted or even have to fear being targeted, on those grounds.

Yet those are the grounds on which the plaintiffs allege they were mistreated by the IRS.… The allegations are substantial.

Kethledge then directed his ire specifically at the IRS:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The entire Obama Administration has consistently behaved as though it could flaunt US law with impunity; good for Judge Kethledge in denying the requested writ of mandamus!

Four Americans Missing After Brussels Terror

Four Americans have gone missing in Brussels since it faced terror attacks by Daesh Takfiri militants.

Brussels 'Terrorism' - Gladio at its Finest?

It is unlikely in my view that ISIS, in the meaningful sense of the term, was behind this. Terrorist attacks such as this have a purpose for actual terrorist groups when they are linked with demands, a quid pro quo, release of prisoners, or some change in policy, recognition, or even a cash payment. They come after general warnings, and some inability of the terrorist group to get its demands met.

At the same time we have another 'ISIS' or, if you will, Al Qaeda - as a western intelligence and operations program designed to attack targets designated by their US/NATO handlers.

NYPD’s Arrests Of Citizen Journalists Should Spark Outrage

Last week, New York City police officers arrested four well-known activists for filming them. Copwatchers—people who regularly film and document police activity—have often been targeted by cops who don’t want to be recorded, despite reminders that recording police interactions is legal in the city. While legal protections for filming police are still unclear in some parts of the country, the invaluable role that copwatchers play as journalists—acting as the eyes, ears and media of the streets—deserves to be recognized.

Media Manipulation: More Fake Video Reports of the Brussels Terror Attacks

The video was fake. What Derniere Heure and La Libre published was footage from a January 2011 terror attack at Moscow International airport.

Journalists and media editors are fully aware that surveillance videos at an airport are under the jurisdiction of the airport’s security authorities. They are not normally released immediately after a terror attack.

There was no way the media could have got hold of the surveillance videos in the immediate wake of the attacks. Moreover, following the attack, the airport was closed down.

In another words, the airport surveillance video would not have been available to the media less than one hour after the terror event.

What Derniere Heure did was to take the Moscow International airport video, remove the audio in Russian, change the date and broadcast it on the Internet and network TV at 9:07 AM.

Was this a stupid mistake or was it deliberate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The removal of audio and changing of the date means it was deliberate.

The forms were supposed to be sent out by Jan. 31, but major technical difficulties have stopped MNsure from automatically producing the forms.

ISIS Attacked Brussels? The US Created ISIS? Therefore?

By Jon Rappoport

I want to acknowledge two researchers and reporters, whose work cuts deeply into the ISIS mirage: Tony Cartalucci and Brandon Turbeville. In a half-sane world, Cartalucci would be the international editor of the New York Times, if the Times were a real news outlet.

If we accept the premise that ISIS attacked Brussels, then the next question is: what is ISIS?

Who is behind it? Who supplies it? Who funds it? Who sustains it?...

Mar 24 07:46

ISIS attacked Brussels? The US created ISIS? Therefore?

As far as the Brussels attacks are concerned, if we assume that ISIS was responsible, the whole scenario is turned upside down after analyzing the basis of ISIS.

The Obama administration (jointly with the Bush administration) should be announcing: “Well, we keep ISIS alive. Unfortunately, things happen. One of those things is Brussels.”

And then you could go on to query the sincerity of the word “unfortunately.”

Webmaster addition: Who needs 12 hours of footage to case a target? In any event, the US Government is facing severe criticism for allowing the US infrastructure to collapse, in particular nuclear reactors in New York and Florida which are leaking radiation. Now if "terrorists" (nudge nudge wink wink) were to attack those reactors, then the leaks can be blamed on the "terrorists" (nudge nudge wink wink) and the government is off of the hook, while Ann Coulter reminds us all that a little radiation is good for you.

$5.8 Mil “Text Against Terror” Fails To Provide Any Tips

The U.S. government has blown nearly $6 million on an experimental “anti-terrorism” program in New Jersey that encourages the public to send tips via text message from their cellular phones.

Since it was launched in mid-2011, the federally-funded “Text Against Terror” project has produced no credible tips, according to a local newspaper report that reveals the feds have poured $5.8 million into the initiative. Police in New Jersey claim 307 tips have been texted so far and that includes people “testing the system.”

The View Hosts Admit Trump Was Right About Brussels: “I Can’t Believe It, He Seems Reasonable”

Is Donald Trump really the voice of reason the day after the attacks in Brussels?

These left-leaning women from The View are besides themselves in having to admit that they agree with The Donald... and find him strangely 'reasonable.'

The co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” appeared to soften a little on GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Tuesday, admitting that his foreign policy positions don’t seem all that outrageous in the aftermath of the deadly terror attacks in Brussels.

Fearful College Students Cry and Call for a Safe Space Because Someone Chalked "Trump 2016" on a Sidewalk

One wonders what happens to these "adults" once they leave the hallowed safe space that is their campus and they have to deal with the real world where no one cares if they are scared of chalk. A world where someone might — GASP! — put a "Trump 2016" sign in their own front yard, for example? A world where the news media might show pro-Trump rallies in the 2016 election coverage.

Do they fall down on the sidewalk and ball into a fetal position and weep? Drive their cars into a tree?? Do their heads explode like in the movie Scanners???

An Angle the Media Will Report on: Syrian Migrants Stop 7 Year Old from Being Raped by Afghani at Greek Border

Considering the stylized pictures of the procession and the public relations-esque media response to this event, one cannot help but wonder if this whole highly publicized response is just a way to shine a positive light on the myriad horror stories of rape and sexual assault that continue to spill out of the migrant wave across Europe, an attempt to push a story in the media that for once doesn’t feature migrants raping women and children (although it still kinda does).

The media has already been caught time and again attempting to cover up migrant sexual abuse and rape.

Former Israeli Intel Operatives Run Security at Brussels Airport

The aviation and general security services firm ICTS handles security operations at Brussels airport, the scene of a bomb attack yesterday morning.

ICTS was established in 1982 by former members of Shin Bet, Israel's internal security agency and El Al airline security agents, and has a major presence around the world in airport security including operations in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Japan and Russia. ICTS uses the security system employed in Israel, whereby passengers are profiled to assess the degree to which they pose a potential threat on the basis of a number of indicators, including age, name, origin and behavior during questioning.

This will not, however, be the first time that ICTS has come under scrutiny for possible security lapses leading to a 'Muslim terror attack'.

The 'WHITE squatter camps' of South Africa: Shanty towns built after the fall of Apartheid are now home to hundreds of families

More than 400,000 white South Africans are thought to live in poverty. The country's population is about 50 million. Those living in squalid conditions are forced to survive on around £28.99 a month.

The squatter camp in Munsieville, near Johannesburg, is one of 80 across South Africa. It is built on the site of an old dumping ground and is home to around 300 people, of which a quarter are children.

There is no electricity, no running water apart from a couple of standpipes, no secure structures and little food. Houses are typically built with bare earth floors, but frequent floods wash away the topsoil and leave decades-old waste exposed.

Hospitals refuse residents care and those living at the camp are regularly rebuffed by potential employers at job interviews.

America’s Fake War Against ISIS Grinds On

A recent US Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) hearing considering the nominations of General Joseph Votel and Lieutenant General Raymond Thomas for command of US Central Command and US Special Operations Command respectively, exposed the absurdity of America’s war on the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS).

While the Syrian Arab Army backed by Russian airpower successfully cuts off entire armies of terrorists from their supplies abroad, while encircling and eradicating them within Syrian territory, the US appears instead to be attempting to stretch out ISIS’ existence while maintaining the illusion of fighting the terrorist organization for as long as possible.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN WARNS OF ATTACKS IN BRUSSELS FOUR DAYS BEFORE EVENT TOOK PLACE

In an instance of bizarre timing or, perhaps, foreknowledge, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Europe only four days agothat it could see terrorist bombings and attacks in its cities in the near future if it does not cease support for and cooperation with Kurdish “militants.”
Interestingly enough, Erdogan mentioned Brussels as a potential target by name.

Only four days before the Brussels attacks, Erdogan spoke at a commencement ceremony for the 101st anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli in Canakkale, Turkey on March, 18 where he stated that “there is no reason why the bomb that exploded in Ankara cannot explode in Brussels, in any other European city.”

“The snakes you are sleeping with can bite you any time,” he added.

While ISIS, a Western-created and NATO-directed terrorist organization, has claimed credit for the bombings, it should be pointed out that Erdogan was referring to “Kurdish militants,” whom Turkey considers terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the world of geopolitics, there is almost no such thing as coincidence...

One has to wonder if Edrogan was just spouting off, to hear himself speak, or had some kind of foreknowledge, and if that was the case, why he did not share what he knew with Belgian authorities?!?

Strangely enough (or not), I was just having the thought the day before the Brussels attack happened that it had been awhile since the last major false flag attack had occurred (a few months since the 2nd Paris false flag attack and the San Bernardino false flag attack). I had the distinct feeling that another one was just around the corner.

Kremlin: Putin, Kerry to Meet in Moscow on Wednesday

The Kremlin has confirmed that a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will take place in Moscow on March 23, the state-run TASS news agency reported Tuesday.

“A meeting between Kerry and Putin will indeed go ahead,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, TASS reported.

“Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will brief the president on their contacts. A sufficiently broad scope of issues will certainly be brought up during the course of the talks, primarily on the pressing topics of Syria and Ukraine,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to be optimistic about the potential outcome of this meeting, but find I cannot be, particularly regarding Syria.

The US still wants regime change, and the ouster of Al-Assad; Putin will have none of it.

And there is a question of how the horrific attacks in Brussels yesterday may color things, particularly from the US side. As reported today by Mike Snyder at blacklistednews.com:

In fact, a former top adviser to Hillary Clinton started calling for a Syrian invasion within just hours of the attacks… A former adviser to Hillary Clinton on Syria, Frederic C. Hof, now a Resident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, has called for invading Syria in the wake of the deadly attacks in Brussels. “For the better part of a year, one clear recommendation has been on the table: assemble an American-led, coalition-of-the-willing, professional ground component—one top-heavy in regional and European forces—to enter eastern Syria to close with and kill ISIS. Engaging the Syrian opposition at all levels, consistent with an executable civil-military stabilization plan, can produce an administrative structure for an ISIS-free eastern Syria. Killing ISIS in Syria can ease the migration crisis and hasten the demise of this murderous band in Iraq. And it can demonstrate to the credulously stupid that linking up with losers will be a one-way trip to self-destruction,” Hof writes.

Obama says world must unite against terror after Brussels attack

The terrorist bombings in Belgium on Tuesday are "another reminder we must unite" in the fight against terrorism, President Obama said before a speech to the Cuban people here this morning.

"We will do whatever is necessary to support our friends in Belgium," Obama said.

“We stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people,” he said. “This is yet another reminder that the world must unite, we must be together.”

Obama was briefed on the Brussels explosions Tuesday morning at at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, where he was staying on the third day of his Cuban visit, White House officials said.

He spoke to Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel before the speech and offered the condolences of the American people, the White House said. Obama offered U.S. assistance in investigating the attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Barack Hussein Obama; sir, I am all for all of humanity standing shoulder to shoulder, against terror.

But what, sir about the terror the US military has been unleashing on the world for the last two decades, primarily to expropriate natural resources to which this country, and the corporations which so lavishly fund its politicians, have absolutely no moral right?!?

In Iraq, where Saddam Hussein destroyed all of his MWDs, which President Bush claimed he still had, the US military went in to control the country's oil and make sure that all oil sold was only sold in US dollars.

In Afghanistan, the war there (going into its 14th year, if my math is correct) was about leasing pipeline routes, the embarrassment of riches in minerals, and the opium crop.

In Israel, the alleged "war on terror", aided and abetted by US technology and weaponry, has been a war against the Palestinian people, and has included serial genocide; the indefinite detention of Palestinian children, who are tortured to sign confessions in a language they neither read nor understand (Hebrew), and where homes in which Palestinian families have lived for generations, have been brutally annexed for settler occupation.

In Yemen, the US-enabled, intelligence-equipped, and armed Saudi military has been assassinating civilians; destroying hospitals and schools; and private residences.

Sir, it is apparent that I need to remind you that such activities are war crimes, because you seem to have managed to conveniently forgotten that. Can we attribute that, perhaps, to SMD (selective memory disorder)?!?

Then, Mr. President, we have the issue of extrajudicial assassinations. This is so immorally far from the Constitution and Bill of Rights, that I do not know where to begin.

But the right to due process, which those assassinated never get, is enshrined in American jurisprudence. And you, as a former lawyer and Constitutional law lecturer, sir, should know this.

And what is even worse is, our military is only killing the alleged "bad guys"; they are also killing innocent infants, children, women, and the medically fragile, with these drone attacks.

And finally, Mr. President, there is the reality that the US government has this pathological habit of propping up tinpot dictators, because these people are "our thugs".

There are few better examples of this than US support for the Al-Khalifa monarchy of Bahrain, with a human rights record just to the right of that of Attila the Hun. This Sunni royal family, and their government, is constantly suppressing the Shiite majority here, and you turn a blind eye to this oppression, because Bahrain is home to the Navy's 5th Fleet. This country has not only arrested, and tortured, peaceful protestors, but also the first responders who cared for them after they were beaten and tortured by the Bahraini police.

And the late President Kennedy said it best; "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable." And sir, that is precisely what we are ultimately looking at here in Bahrain.

In summation, Mr. President, the US government CANNOT reclaim the moral high ground in the world until it:

1. Stops these insane and immoral pre-emptive wars of aggression.
2. Stops propping up tinpot dictators, because, ultimately their people will successfully rebel against them (Do you remember the 1979 Iran revolution, sir, when the Iranians deposed the Shah of Iran?!? This country's leadership SHOULD remember this, as a lesson in the ultimate consequences of installing a dictator in a foreign country).
3. Starts negotiating in good faith, in a fair and moral way, with countries with which we have intense geopolitical disagreements.

America Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.

Truth emerges: The U.S. created ISIS!

You've probably heard or read somewhere that the United States government is responsible for the creation of the renegade Islamist terror organization known as ISIS. It may be tempting to write off the idea as some nutty conspiracy theory, Kremlin propaganda or at least a misinterpretation of the facts, but there is mounting evidence supporting the assertion – even the mainstream media outlets are now covering the story.

A recent op/ed piece published by The Guardian sheds some light on the subject – one which is admittedly complex and multifaceted, but not impossible to describe or understand in basic terms.

In the piece, titled "Now the truth emerges: how the US fueled the rise of Isis in Syria and Iraq," Seumas Milne outlines the series of events and policies that led to the rise of ISIS. As the details continue to surface, the extent of the US government's role has begun to be revealed:

Utah Vote Rigging

The title of Wired’s story was disturbing: “Utah’s Online Caucus Gives Security Experts Heart Attacks”.

The story opens up this way:

“Security researchers pretty much uniformly agree that letting people vote online is a very bad idea, one that is fraught with risks and vulnerabilities that could have unknowable consequences for the future of democracy.”

“This week, the Utah GOP is going to give it a whirl anyway.”

But right out of the box I noticed a slight problem.

Who paid for the experiment? The Utah GOP paid more than 80,000 to purchase the equipment – not state election officials.

Brussels Terror Attacks Underscore Insanity of EU Migration Policy

As has become all too routine, EU leaders and other national leaders around the world condemned the attacks and expressed their sympathy for, and solidarity with, the Belgian people. The pro-EU forces also were swift to condemn any figure who pointed out that the rising wave of terrorism has been facilitated by the EU’s migration/refugee policies that have brought a huge Muslim tsunami into Europe, including among that tidal wave many militants of ISIS and other terrorist organizations.

Belgian Terrorists Can Still Enter US Without a Visa

Leading lawmakers identified Belgium as a hotspot for terrorism months ago and are warning that many of the radicalized individuals living there are still able to travel to the United States without first obtaining a visa and undergoing thorough security checks.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Washington Free Beacon Tuesday afternoon that current flaws in the U.S. visa waiver program—which facilities travel to the United States from partner nations including Belgium—have created a loophole that could permit radicalized individuals to legally enter the United States with minimal background checks.

DeSantis is warning of these flaws on the heels of deadly mass terrorist attack in Brussels on Tuesday that has killed at least 30 and wounded hundreds more.

ISRAEL'S CELLEBRITE REVEALED AS COMPANY HELPING FBI HACK IPHONE ENCRYPTION

In the aftermath of the FBI's surprising request on Monday to postpone a hearing in its legal crusade to unlock Apple cellphones, many wondered who it was that had succeeded in penetrating the supposedly unhackable smartphone. Earlier today Reuters provided the answer: the FBI's effort is being assisted by Israel's Cellebrite, a provider of mobile forensic software, which is now helping the Feds in their attempt to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported on Wednesday.

If Cellebrite succeeds, then the FBI will no longer need the help of Apple Inc, the Israeli daily said, citing unnamed industry sources. It will also mean that the entire Apple "stand" for privacy and consumer rights was one big theatrical spectacle as both parties involved clearly were aware the iPhone can be penetrated with the right tools. Aptly enough, said tools have been found in Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (complete absence of) surprise by this development.

7 STRANGE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BRUSSELS TERROR ATTACKS THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT ASKING

The horrific terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium on March 22, 2016 are going to reverberate in our memories for years to come, and perhaps that was the intention. Terror attacks are designed to create fear and to get attention, and these attacks have definitely done both. On Tuesday morning, two huge explosions ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels as travelers were getting ready to board their morning flights. You can view some raw footage of one of the bomb blasts right here. Just a short while later, another huge explosion was reported at a metro station just yards away from the European Commission headquarters. At this point, CNN says that at least 30 people have died and about 230 people are wounded as a result of these bombings. But what was the real motive for these attacks?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our hearts, (and some of our prayers),naturally, go out to the families and friends of those who were killed and wounded in this horrific attack.

But even in our collective sense of being shaken badly by this incident, we have to pull ourselves together, and ask the logical, sang-foid question; cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

It is certainly NOT Syria, from where most of the Jihadists have fled, and Russia's leadership has stated that they will unilaterally defend Syria from any outside attack against Syrian soil.

I'm looking at the Faux News feed (which I can only do with the sound off, to prevent intense nausea), and Andy Mc Carthy, a former US Assistant Attorney for the Southern District of New York, made the statement to the effect that if these attacks were planned in Syria or Iraq, it poses a grave security problem for the US.

However, to date,and to the best of my understanding, there is no concrete evidence which has been presented that this was, in fact,the case.

There are certain, powerful elements in this government, and beyond, (think: the Saudi Arabian and Turkish governments) who would love to see the US military invade Syria, to get rid of Al-Assad; of course, that, most probably, means war with Russia.

There are certain, powerful elements in this government and beyond, who would love to see the US military completely re-invade Iraq; they, of course, are willfully ignore thinking about the powerful Shiite Cleric, Moqtada Al Sadr, who recently has been a peaceful force against the corruption of the Iraqi government, but could reconstitute his Mahdi army against American forces in a heartbeat.

There are certain powerful elements in this government, and beyond, who would love a complete US reinvasion/occupation of Libya, to control its oil, and have it sold only for US dollars.

How this attack is ultimately going to be spun remains to be seen; but trust me - it will be spun, most probably to support one of the agendas I have outlined above.

Recipe for Collapse: Rising Military and Social Welfare Spending

Whatever you think of former Fed chair Alan Greenspan, he is one of the few public voices identifying runaway entitlement costs as a structural threat to the economy and nation. We can summarize Greenspan's comments very succinctly: there is no free lunch. The more money that is siphoned off for entitlements, the less there is for investment needed to maintain productivity gains that are the foundation of future income generation: Greenspan: Worried About Inflation, Says “Entitlements Crowding Out Investment, Productivity is Dead” (via Mish)

Thank You for Hacking iPhone, Now Tell Apple How You Did It

The FBI has come up with a strategy to get out of its messy court case with Apple over accessing a dead terrorist’s iPhone: bring in the hackers. Yet any new method the bureau uses to hack into iPhones may be short-lived -- it may be obligated to give Apple the details so the company can fix the security gap.

From AIPAC to Trump: Michael Glassner’s journey

How does one go from serving as AIPAC’s Southwest Regional Political Director a year ago to running Donald Trump’s national political operation today?
Ever since Trump announced his White House bid last June, Michael Glassner has been serving as his campaign’s national political director. In part, he is credited with landing the coveted Sarah Palin endorsement ahead of the Iowa Caucus last month.

Upon moving to New Jersey in the late nineties, Glassner served as a senior advisor to Lewis Eisenberg, the then-Chairman of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and a prominent Republican Jewish leader. He worked out of the Port Authority’s World Trade Center office but left just before 9/11 to join IDT Corp in Newark. Glassner credits his former boss, IDT founder Howard Jonas, whom he referred to as “a strong Zionist and an AIPAC guy,” with encouraging him to become more active in pro-Israel politics.

“Families Were Blown Up” — Scenes From a Saudi-Led Bombing in Yemen

Around midday on March 15, fighter jets from a Saudi-led coalition bombed a market in Mastaba, in Yemen’s northern province of Hajjah. The latest count indicates that about 120 people were killed, including more than 20 children, and 80 were wounded in the strikes — perhaps the deadliest attack yet in a war that has killed more than 6,000 civilians. Local residents and health officials say the carnage was so great in Mastaba that most of the bodies could hardly be identified, and several were beyond recognition.

President Obama's Lesser-Known Legacy: "Arms Dealer in Chief"

Europe, Islamism and some uncomfortable home truths

Central Europe, chiefly Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, remain largely safe from the terror threat, despite the former in particular being a Nato player in the Middle East. It is precisely because the reasons for this are so obvious that they cannot be mentioned. Poland is 0.1 percent Muslim, most of whom are from a long-settled Tartar community, Britain is 5 percent, France 9 percent and Brussels 25 percent, and those numbers are growing.

Donald Trump slams Muslims for failing to report suspicious activity within their own communities but Britain's Home Secretary Theresa May says he's 'plain wrong'

Donald Trump condemned Muslims today for failing to report suspicious activity within their own communities - insisting they must do more to help prevent attacks such as those in Belgium.

The US Republican presidential candidate said it was ‘a disgrace’ that a suspect behind last year’s Paris attacks had been found after a long manhunt by police in an area of Brussels where he lived.

Mr Trump, who wants a ban on Muslims entering the US, condemned the ‘outrageous’ attacks on the Brussels airport and metro yesterday and said he would ‘hit ISIS so hard you wouldn't believe it’.

How many innocent men were convicted of rape before cellphones were invented?

Webmaster addition: Fake accusations of rape were a favorite "weapon" of the 1990s militant "male bash" feminists. A lot of innocent men were sent to prison on the word of women. NOW actually lobbied against the use of DNA tests to defend men, saying the woman's word should always be taken at face value. Apparently, rape was considered such a serious crime that even innocence could not be allowed as a defense. Catherine Comins, assistant Dean of Student Activity in Vassar, was quoted in TIME Magazine as saying that a false accusation of rape was a good thing for a man to go through!

The Psychological Foundings Of Suicide Bombers: A Palestinian Approach !!

There is no single innocent zionist in Palestine; they are all in all colonizers living on the Palestinian dead bodies and on their land and enjoying the homes of the natives after killing or ethnically cleansing them !!

Have you ever questioned that the ever first “suicide bomber” was a jew? And that he committed his massacre against the joyfully celebrating Palestinians "civilians" in their sacred temple? Why shouldn’t any nation of the world appreciate and even worship their “suicide bombers” like the jews do to this “butcher”?

Tuesday morning, the city of Brussels was shaken by multiple bombing attacks at the airport and later at the metro station right next to the European Union headquarters...

During the massive search and presentation of information, some disinformation made its way out on the airwaves, as well as the interwebs.

Cruz spokeswoman Alice Stewart later said there needs to be a robust law enforcement presence in American neighborhoods where many Muslims live.
