Why Israel is blocking access to its archives

Most of the files should have been accessible after 15 years, with the most top-secret documents locked away for up to 70 years. In many cases, Akevot says, the classified status of documents has expired, but they have still not been made public. Reasons for denial of access are rarely given.

In other instances, documents that were already declassified – some of them decades ago – have been re-sealed and are now unavailable.

Despite the mounting secrecy, historic war crimes are still coming to light.

NATO Will Suppress Protests In Poland

On May 18th, 2016, the well-known Polish politician Mateusz Piskorski was arrested on charg-es of spying for “third countries.” Shortly before, he wrote an article that predicted the beginning of mass political repressions against NATO opponents in Poland and Europe as a whole. He was right. Katehon presents the following exclusive translation of his article:

Predictions concerning the upcoming NATO summit in July in Warsaw are beginning to clearly indicate that today the alliance’s goal is first and foremost preventing the emergence of social movements demanding the liberation of Europe from underneath the tutelage of the United States. As can be seen, the Financial Times’ inadvertent uttering of the words of one of the Polish Army’s senior commanders show just what decisions can be expected this summer. These are decisions which completely undermine not only the sovereignty of Warsaw in the field of foreign policy, but also clearly speak to the fact that from this moment on NATO is supposed to be a police force ready to participate in the pacification of eventual social protests or intervene in the affairs of domestic Polish politics.

Sanders Snubs AIPAC, Trump A Rothschild Tool

Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change revealed that recently Trump has been consulting with the Rockefeller-controlled Council on Foreign Relations for foreign policy advice.

In a recent American Free Press article Michael Collins Piper discusses the heavy Rothschild/Rockefeller influence amongst GOP candidates, including Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Piper notes that it was Trump who acquired a 93% interest in Resorts International – a long-time CIA/mob drug laundry launched by Rothschild lieutenant Meyer Lansky’s protégé Robert Vesco. Piper writes:

Beware the Useful Idiots

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.

NEW NATION, LONG WAR

Rebel forces in southern Sudan began using child soldiers long before seceding from Sudan in 2011. The United States, on the other hand, passed a law in 2008 that banned providing military assistance to nations that use child soldiers. The law was called the Child Soldiers Prevention Act, or CSPA, but after South Sudan’s independence, the White House issued annual waivers that kept aid flowing to the world’s newest nation despite its use of child soldiers. President Obama stated in 2012 that the waiver that year was in “the national interest of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Someone in the press needs to have the "male attributes" to challenge her on this issue of those waivers, allowing South Sudan to conscript child soldiers.

Please: don't listen to what Clinton says in her campaign speeches; after all, it was President Obama in 2008, who said, publicly, that she would say ANYTHING in order to get elected.

Rather, look at the history of her actions at the State Department and as New York State Senator: she supported the disastrous war in Iraq; the assassination of Qaddafi in Libya; and created an absolute fiasco of the alleged "Reset" with Russia.

IS this REALLY the person we want running our country?!?

U.S. Weighing Whether to Go After More Targets in Afghanistan

The Obama administration is considering a plan that would allow the U.S. military to strike more targets with fewer restrictions throughout Afghanistan, officials told NBC News on Thursday.

A senior U.S. official said active discussions are under way to give U.S. forces new authority to strike Taliban fighters simply for being part of the Taliban.

Under current authority, they may carry out strikes only in self-defense, to protect Afghan forces deemed to be in imminent danger or to target al Qaeda and ISIS.

A senior defense official said the military has been "advocating" to expand its mandate, noting that the Taliban made significant advances last year and that Afghan forces couldn't keep up.

Targeting Taliban assets in general could help Afghan forces take back territory, particularly in Helmand and Oruzgan provinces, where the Taliban have shifted much of their effort recently, this official said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of all that's holy, are we still in Afghanistan?!?

I would like to politely remind both the civilian and military leadership in this country that it is NOT characterized as "the graveyard of empires" for no particular reason.

And aerial strikes to "neutralize" alleged Taliban members (no due process, no day in court, of course) is only going to antagonize more young men into becoming jihadists.

How many military personnel have we lost here?!?

As reported at watson.brown.edu:

The number of United States troops who have died fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan had passed 6,800 at the beginning of 2015. They died in a host of ways. The causes of death include rocket-propelled grenade fire and the improvised explosive devices that have been responsible for roughly half of all deaths and injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their deaths were also the result of vehicle crashes, electrocutions, heatstroke, friendly fire, and suicides in theater. Official Pentagon numbers do not include the many troops who return home and kill themselves as a result of psychological wounds such as PTSD. The DOD does not report suicides among non-active duty reservists. However, the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has released data on suicides among all veterans, in a comprehensive February 2013 report. The VA issued a public statement that it is using this data in order to implement rigorous suicide prevention measures. The military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have also produced fatalities among large numbers of private contract workers. A full and accurate accounting of contractor deaths has not yet been done by the Pentagon. Over 6,900 contractors working for the US have been killed in the two war zones. The true number is likely much larger: the majority of US contractors are the citizens of other countries, many of whose deaths appear not to have been reported.

How much has the US government spent on the Afghanistan war?!?

According to time.com in January of 2015, the cost has been Afghanistan has cost $685.6 billion to that date.

AND FOR WHAT, PLEASE?!? How am I, or any of the people reading this blog, more "safe and secure", for this war having dragged on as it has, over the last 14 years?!?

Has this brought "democracy" to the Afghani people?!?

No. The "elections" here have been pretty much a rubber stamp of whatever US-Centric thug the US government wanted in power.

Have we managed to help the Afghanis improve their economy?

As reported last February in an article in antiwar.com, the following statement was quoted by Peter Van Buren:

Hey, did you wake up today wondering what was going on in Afghanistan, America’s 51st state, you know, the one we’ve been occupying for over 14 years, that one where thousands of Americans have died and where thousands still serve? Yeah, that Afghanistan. Sure, of course, I can be more specific. But better let the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) tell the tale, via it released its thirtieth Quarterly Report to Congress. The quarterly report notes: Despite more than a decade of reconstruction and development efforts, the Afghan economy remains in fragile and worsening condition. Intractable insurgents, cutbacks in foreign military personnel, persistent emigration of people and capital, and a slowing global economy are shifting Afghanistan’s economic prospects from troubling to bleak.

So can someone in the US government please tell me, with a straight face, why the hell we are still here?!?

The answers here are both clear, and disturbing, and involve corporate greed; the pathological inabilities of the US government and military to admit they made a mistake; and the incredible flow of heroin from opium poppies, the cultivation of which is booming in present day Afghanistan, courtesy of the US and NATO occupation.

Private mercenary firms, such as Academi, have been making a killing (literally, and figuratively), with contracts for services like training Afghani security forces from 2002 through 2014 (and we have seen just how well THAT has gone).

Has this government never heard of performance-based pay?!? Why was Academi allowed to continue with its services, when the outcome of those services was so abysmally lousy, that even with the US, NATO and Afghan forces working against them, the Taliban are gaining ground?!?

IBM has also made a great deal of money through its mandate to "stabilize" Afghanistan by facilitating private investment in its vast mineral wealth."

Bluntly put, this war has neither improved the security, nor the quality of life for the American people; it has been a meat grinder through which elite corporatists and druglords have been able to make obscene amounts of money.

Those military who were killed outright, or maimed for life, were only "collateral damage" in the eyes of these people, and irrelevant.

In my eyes, these military are neither collateral damage nor irrelevant; they were people with lives, lives that mattered, thrown into a war based on a pack of lies.

It has been a 14 year mistake that can only be remedied by the US and NATO withdrawing their forces as quickly as would be safe.

And now would be a pretty damned good time to start that process, thank you very much.

Since that unholy trinity of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld will never be prosecuted for lying this country into a war, which has broken this country both morally and fiscally, the withdrawal of US and NATO troops is the best outcome we can hope for now.

Fox News Poll: Majority thinks Clinton is lying about emails

American voters think Hillary Clinton put national security at risk by mishandling classified emails -- and that she’s lying about it.

By a 60-27 percent margin, they think she’s lying about how her emails were handled while she was secretary of state, according to the latest Fox News national poll of registered voters.

And by 57-32 percent, voters say U.S. safety was at risk because of Clinton’s mishandling of national secrets.

Preparations underway for summit on Nagorno-Karabakh in St. Petersburg

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and French Ambassador to Moscow Jean-Maurice Ripert have discussed preparations for the trilateral summit on Nagorno-Karabakh in St. Petersburg, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

The meeting was held on the request of the French ambassador who was accompanied by co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group Pierre Andrieu.

"During the meeting, the sides discussed issues connected with international efforts on resolving the crisis in Ukraine, as well as preparations for the trilateral summit on Nagorno-Karabakh settlement in St. Petersburg. They also touched upon the situation in the South Caucasus and in Central Asia," the foreign ministry said.

The ministry did no clarify the concrete date of the summit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is perceived as an "honest broker" by both the Azerbaijani and Armenian governments; hopefully, this dialogue will move the process along to where there can be a meaningful peace deal created., and permanently de-escalate tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Obama 2008: Hillary Clinton ‘Will Say Anything To Get Elected’

President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton Thursday afternoon, saying “she’s got the courage, the compassion, and the heart to get the job done.” But that’s not what he was saying in 2008 when the two were competing for the Democratic nomination.

In a January 2008 debate, then-Senator Obama accused Clinton of being “willing to say anything to get elected.”

He repeated the charge in a radio ad that same month, in which he attacked Clinton as “what’s wrong with politics” and claimed she “will say anything to get elected.”

The ad began with Obama saying: “I’m Barack Obama, running for president and I approve this message,” before switching to a narrator.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fast forward to 2016, and absolutely nothing has changed; Hillary will STILL say anything to get elected, but understanding clearly that she is the presumptive Democratic nominee, Obama couldn't not support her nomination this time.

Oh, and btw, this little snippet from infowars.com in 2006, from Hillary's own video, calling for deportations and the building of a "physical barrier" to keep Mexicans out of the country.

Shocking video shows Hillary Clinton calling for deportations and the building of a “physical barrier” to keep Mexicans out of the US. Hillary is seen arguing the policies of Mexico are “pushing migration north across our border” and says the US needs to “secure our borders” with “physical barriers,” implement “tougher employer sanctions” for hiring illegals and “deport” those who’ve “committed transgressions.” The video was taken from a speech Clinton gave to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2006.

So let me get this straight; such an observation is totally, horrifically racist when it comes out of Donald Trump's mouth; but not out of Hillary's?!?

Of course, a decade after having made these statements, Mrs. Clinton has come to realize that the large corporations who lavish her with contributions love cheap, illegal labor, because it keeps the costs of doing business down.

Also, there is the question of how illegals will vote, although, theoretically, according to Federal law, they cannot. As reported in the washingtontimes.com in October of last year:

A bill signed Saturday by California Gov. Jerry Brown aimed at improving voter turnout has critics predicting that it will ramp up voter fraud by making it easier for noncitizens to cast ballots. The New Motor Voter Act automatically registers to vote all eligible voters when they obtain or renew their driver’s licenses at the Department of Motor Vehicles instead of requiring them to fill out a form. Those eligible may opt out of voter registration. The goal is to ease barriers to voting, but election-integrity advocates warn that the measure could inadvertently add millions of illegal voters to the rolls given that California allows undocumented aliens to obtain driver’s licenses. Anti-fraud groups True the Vote and the Election Integrity Project of California had urged Mr. Brown, a Democrat, to veto the bill, saying it would lead to “‘state sanctioned’ voter fraud” and pointing out that the legislation exempts from penalties ineligible voters who wind up being registered.

From my perspective, such a law needs to be challenged all the way to the Supreme Court.

For foreign nationals, privilege of American citizenship is a precious, earned right, and should be treated as such.

It’s Taking Way Too Long For The FDA To Recall Tainted Food

The Food and Drug Administration is too slow to order companies to recall tainted foods, leaving people at risk of illness and death, a government watchdog said in a review of the agency’s food safety program.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General reviewed 30 recalls that occurred between 2012 and 2015, including two in which companies did not recall all affected items until 165 days and 81 days after the FDA became aware of tainted foods. The watchdog issued its report on Wednesday.

“FDA does not have adequate policies and procedures to ensure that firms take prompt and effective action in initiating voluntary food recalls,” the report said. “As a result, consumers remained at risk of illness or death for several weeks after FDA was aware of a potentially hazardous food in the supply chain.”

The watchdog urged the FDA to address the problem immediately.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because of their benign neglect of the US food chain, the FDA should be collectively sued out of existence.

The Federal Government can, and should do better by the American people, and there should be some very intense "bite" if Federal employees do not do their job, and make our food chain safe.

Matt Taibbi: Democrats Will Learn All the Wrong Lessons From Brush With Bernie

Democratic voters tried to express these frustrations through the Sanders campaign, but the party leaders have been and probably will continue to be too dense to listen. Instead, they'll convince themselves that, as Hohmann's Post article put it, Hillary's latest victories mean any "pressure" they might have felt to change has now been "ameliorated."

The maddening thing about the Democrats is that they refuse to see how easy they could have it. If the party threw its weight behind a truly populist platform, if it stood behind unions and prosecuted Wall Street criminals and stopped taking giant gobs of cash from every crooked transnational bank and job-exporting manufacturer in the world, they would win every election season in a landslide.

MOSCOW WARNS OF PROMPT RESPONSE AFTER US SENDS DESTROYER TO BLACK SEA

Having sent not one but two aircraft carriers into the Mediterranean in what, as we reported yesterday, was meant to be a "clear message to Russia", the US decided to further antagonize Russia when on Monday it sent the US destroyer Porter in the Black Sea "for a series of drills with allies and forces of partner nations in what the United States called a routine deployment", the US Navy announced. To be sure, the US Navy was quite clear about its intentions with these deployments: “It provides some needed presence in the Med to check…the Russians,” the official said. “The unpredictability of what we did with Truman kind of makes them think twice.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question one has to ask is, why is the US government confronting Russia militarily in an election year?!?

The answers are complex, but the following scenarios are hardly improbable.

First, the US economy is in a tailspin, except for the fortunes of the 1 percenters.

Under President Obama's watch, decently paying jobs, which used to be the bedrock of a comfortable, middle-class existence, continue to be offshored and outsourced, leaving many Americans with no choice but to be working several minimum wage jobs, if they can get them, and running further and further into personal debt.

To say that there is a lot of anger and resentment on this issue, in the heartland, is like saying that the Titanic hit a little bit of ice.

So if in fact there is a war against Russia and/or China before the election, it will have been very cynically created, in order to attempt to misdirect Americans' anger at the horrific economic conditions in which so many find themselves toward those two nations.

Secondly, internal polling by the White House may indicate that Trump could well pull off a miracle, and soundly win the 2016 election, even with all of the vote fraud and vote suppression the Democrats can muster.

Should this happen, the Establishment will want to pile on as much pain and misery on the Trump Administration as humanly possible, by initiating a war with which Trump must contend, even before he has taken the oath of office, and perhaps deliberately crashing the economy just as hard as they can before he becomes President.

Thirdly, should Clinton win/steal the election, she very much wants to be perceived as a "war president"; the smell of blood (other people's, of course) is the ultimate aphrodisiac of power for her.

Expect her to recklessly declare war against Russia and China, as her first act as President, rather than looking for any possible way of diffusing geopolitical tensions with both countries.

Look for her to reinstitute the draft; and if there is any major public protest against such wars, look for her to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and declare martial law.

After all, her good friends on Wall Street, and in the banking industry, will be making billions from such activities; and for her, money isn't everything: it is the only thing.

I would, frankly, hate to be the military strategists and weapons specialists who, ultimately, will have to tell her that the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

Clinton should be getting educated on these issues now, but in her hubris, believes she will have "plenty of time" to be schooled on these once she has taken the Oath of Office; she absolutely does not have the luxury of time at all, if she is looking at winning a war against Russia and/or China.

Green Party's Jill Stein: What We Fear from Donald Trump, We Have Already Seen from Hillary Clinton

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein takes aim at the presumptive nominees of both major parties, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. "Trump says very scary things—deporting immigrants, massive militarism and ignoring the climate. Hillary, unfortunately, has a track record for doing all of those things," Stein says. "Hillary has supported the deportations of immigrants, opposed the refugees—women and children coming from Honduras, whose refugee crisis she was very much responsible for by giving a thumbs-up to this corporate coup in Honduras that has created the violence from which those refugees are fleeing." Stein goes on to say, "We see these draconian things that Donald Trump is talking about, we actually see Hillary Clinton doing."

NEW YORK TIMES SAYS FAIR USE OF 300 WORDS WILL RUN YOU ABOUT $1800

Fair use is apparently the last refuge of a scofflaw. Following on the heels of a Sony rep's assertion that people could avail themselves of fair use for the right price, here comes the New York Times implying fair use not only does not exist, but that it runs more than $6/word.

Obtaining formal permission to use three quotations from New York Times articles in a book ultimately cost two professors $1,884. They’re outraged, and have taken to Kickstarter — in part to recoup the charges, but primarily, they say, to “protest the Times’ and publishers’ lack of respect for Fair Use.”
These professors used quotes from other sources in their book about press coverage of health issues, but only the Gray Lady stood there with her hand out, expecting nearly $2,000 in exchange for three quotes totaling less than 300 words.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times has gone to an absolutely new moral and legal low in this case, and you would almost think that their Governance Board would be thoroughly embarrassed for having done this.

Of course, to get to that level of power by consistently supporting the US Government's narrative, no matter how false or misleading, or ultimately hurtful to the American it may be, one has to have had ones's conscience surgically removed.

I would strongly suggest that people stop reading the NYT all together, after letting their advertisers know that you have stopped reading it, therefore their ads, either in print or on-line, are completely futile.

Such a large-scale action would potentially either bankrupt the paper, or cause a change in its corporate policy; I am not sure which, but the result of such a protest will most likely have some effect.

EMAILS SHOW MAJOR CLINTON DONOR PUT ON INTELLIGENCE BOARD DESPITE LACK OF EXPERIENCE

When presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, a committee dealing with nuclear arms issues was staffed by many experts in the field, and one securities trader from Chicago with no known intelligence background. State Department emails, released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Citizens United, revealed some details behind how this may have happened, ABC News reported.

Rajiv K. Fernando had given substantial contributions and raised money for Clinton’s 2008 Presidential campaign. He also gave up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation before his appointment to the State Department board. In 2011, ABC News asked the Department how Fernando was selected for the board, and some of the released emails showed how Department officials reacted to the question.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Judging from her behaviour as Secretary of State, Clinton's "pay to play" cronyism will not end if she steals/wins the election in November.

Expect horrifically unqualified candidates to be vetted as "advisors" in various areas of her administration, just because they have been huge donors to the Clinton Foundation, and the intelligent, experienced, knowledgeable people to get permanently frozen out, in favor of her political contributors.

Victim in accidental police shooting dies

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has confirmed the homeowner who was accidentally shot by a Henry County Police Department officer Wednesday night reportedly died in the hospital.

According to Scott Dutton, of GBI public affairs, William Powell, 63, died in the hospital Thursday from a gunshot wound he sustained in the neck.

Though, media reports were circulating Thursday evening of Powell’s death, the GBI released the information after all family members were notified Friday morning.

HCPD responded just before midnight to the 600 block of Swan Lake Road after three officers were dispatched to the location based on instructions relayed by a 911 operator.

“Preliminary review of the 911 call indicates that the officers were at the wrong location,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation stated.

Forty-One Secret Service Employees Punished For Illegally Accessing Congressman's Private Data In Hopes Of Discrediting Him

When Rep. Jason Chaffetz began asking the Secret Service about its string of high-profile failures, agents were quick to respond… with attempts to undermine the Congressman's credibility. Eighteen minutes after the hearings started, Secret Service agents -- dozens of them -- began poring through his 2003 Secret Service application in hopes of finding a few skeletons in his previously-vetted closet.

Even Secret Service Assistant Director Ed Lowery got in on the illegal fun, suggesting via email that "some information [Chaffetz] finds embarrassing needs to get out." Information did get out, but it had no effect on Chaffetz's reputation. The only people embarassed were the Secret Service and DHS head Jeh Johnson, who was forced to apologize on its behalf.

Chancellor Adenauer on Jewish Power

Flashback: In the aftermath of the Six Day War, General Charles de Gaulle publicly called the Jews “an elite people, self-confident, and dominating” and, almost in passing, noted that the Israelis enjoyed “vast support in money, influence, and propaganda [. . .] from the Jewish circles of America and Europe.” Though largely forgotten today, Jewish groups then widely attacked De Gaulle, claiming his comments would lead to “discrimination,” and even Raymond Aron, the otherwise unflappable critic of Jewish ethnocentrism, lost his composure.

West Germany's Holocaust Payoff

Flashback: Certainly the most lucrative expression of this seemingly endless campaign has been West Germany's massive and historically unparalleled reparations payoff to Israel and world Jewry for the alleged collective sins of the German people during the Hitler era. Between 1953 and 1992, the Federal Republic of (West) Germany paid out more than $35 billion in reparations to the Zionist state and to millions of individual "victims of National Socialism."
Note: Never again. Never enough! Give is more and more and more.

Holocaust Compensation Row: Germany Refuses to Negotiate with Israel over New Claims

In 1965, Germany signed a treaty agreeing to pay individual victims; survivors had to file their claims before 1969. Since then, Germany has paid out over €63.2 billion -- including €1.5 billion in direct payments to the Israeli government.
Note: It will never be enough and if you question any of the preposterous claims of the holocau$t you go to jail.

US House calls on Germany to ‘fulfill moral obligation’ to Holocaust survivors

The US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly Tuesday evening to pass a resolution calling upon Germany to increase restitution support for Holocaust survivors in what one of the legislation’s sponsors described as a last chance to support the dwindling number of Nazi victims.
Note: There will never be an end to this extortion racket. That is why you will never be allowed to know the truth.

CNN Depicts 'History-Making' Hillary Clinton As Glowing 'Golden God'

CNN used some very noticeable video editing to transfigure Hillary Clinton on Wednesday's New Day. Correspondent Jeff Zeleny ran footage from the Democratic presidential candidate's victory speech on Tuesday night that transformed Mrs. Clinton into a glowing figure.

He hyped how Mrs. Clinton was "savoring a triumph in her long Democratic primary fight — exactly eight years after extinguishing her first trailblazing campaign."

Oklahoma Police Can Seize Your Entire Bank Account on a Traffic Stop Without Any Charges At All

Mark Zuckerberg’s Social Media Accounts Get Hacked, Password Was Only Two Letters

Does Facebook tech billionaire Mark Zuckerberg know something we don’t about account security and making strong passwords?

It seems recently that Mark ran into a bit of bad luck when several of his social media accounts were hacked, including his Twitter and Pinterest accounts. The hackers, who went by the monicker “OurMine Team,” also took credit for breaking into his Instagram account as well, although Facebook denied that one. Zuckerberg’s Facebook account was apparently untouched.

In one post which has since been deleted, they ragged on Zuckerberg for essentially having one of the easiest passwords to figure out of all time — consisting of only two, that’s right, two letters — which he used across multiple sites.

CNN Makes Us Want to Gag by Editing Hillary’s Nominee Speech to Make Her Look Like a “Glowing Golden God”

We all know they’ve tried to play this game with Obama, using the presidential seal as a halo… or making it seem like rainbows are literally shooting out of his hands.

But now CNN is going to try and pull this crap with Hillary?!

Seriously?! Of all people???

As NewsBusters reports, CNN added a golden god-like glow to a clip of Hillary’s “first female presumptive nominee” speech in the news package they did on it, a move that WMAL host Chris Plante labeled a “propaganda trainwreck”.

Just Threw up in My Mouth a Little: President Obama Releases Video Endorsing Hillary

It’s such a ridiculous joke.

Obama has released an “I’m with her” video (below) endorsing Hillary for president and gushing over how she’s made history as the first woman nominee for president and how she’s more qualified than anyone else in the whole country to be the next president of the United States and he just can’t wait to get out there and start campaigning for her.

It’s so cute, he even threw in the thoroughly debunked situation room photo from the supposed Bin Laden raid...

How Climate Change Can Impact And Change The US As We Know It (16 pics )

It's record-breaking hot in the US and it's not the only big problem the country will face in the coming decades.

As oceans get warmer and northern sea ice begins to melt, sea levels will rise, increasing the frequency of floods. That's because as water warms, it grows in volume. And land ice, such as that of mountain glaciers and giant ice sheets, melts.

UK Illegally Harasses Russian Submarine Engaged in Lawful Passage of English Channel

Contrary to Article 44 of the UN Convention of the Law of the Sea, to which the UK and Russia are both party, the UK has engaged in extensive illegal harassment of a Russian naval submarine engaged in fully lawful transit of the Dover Strait.

A Russian naval vessel en route between the Baltic and Black Seas is fully and specifically entitled under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea Articles 37 and 38 to the right of passage through the strait. This is in addition to the general right of passage through the territorial sea at Article 17. The Russian navy was in full compliance with the provision at Article 20 that, while in territorial waters, the submarine must be on the surface and displaying its flag, and in compliance with Articles 29 to 32 on warships.

Not only does the Russian Navy have every right to sail through the Dover strait on passage, it has been exercising that right – along with many other navies – for over a hundred years. The decision of the British government now to employ military harassment and threat is not only illegal, it is a gross and entirely deliberate act of provocation designed to sour international relations and disturb the atmosphere of world peace.

Ex-UK ambassador: Corrupt Crown Prosecution Service Bins Action on Extraordinary Rendition and Torture

Anybody who is in any way surprised at today’s announcement that nobody will be prosecuted for extraordinary rendition and torture, is in deep denial about what a corrupt and rotten state the United Kingdom is.

Among the many documents the Metropolitan Police (who are genuinely furious) handed to the Director of Public Prosecutions, and which now lies in a bin, is my own sworn evidence of the complicity in torture of Jack Straw and senior FCO officials. I therefore now publish the statement I made to the Metropolitan Police.

Donald Trump’s Advice to Panicked Republicans: Man Up

Donald J. Trump has some advice for panicked Republicans in Washington who are melting down over his most incendiary statements: Man up.

“Politicians are so politically correct anymore, they can’t breathe,”Mr. Trump said in an interview Tuesday afternoon as fellow Republicans forcefully protested his ethnically charged criticism of a federal judge overseeing a lawsuit against the defunct Trump University.

“The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine,” he said during an interlude in a day of exceptional stress in the Trump campaign. “It is out of control. It is gridlock with their mouths.”

Andrew Cuomo and Other Democrats Launch Severe Attack on Free Speech to Protect Israel

The prince of the New York political dynasty yesterday issued an executive order directing all agencies under his control to terminate any and all business with companies or organizations that support a boycott of Israel. It ensures that citizens who hold and express a particular view are punished through the denial of benefits that other citizens enjoy: a classic free speech violation (imagine if Cuomo issued an order stating that “anyone who expresses conservative viewpoints shall have all state benefits immediately terminated”).

The Donald and The La Raza Judge

Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge?

Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class–action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge’s bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent.

Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific?

Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge's rulings and to question his motives. Second, there are grounds for believing Trump is right.
