Truthout interviews economist Paul Craig Roberts


With the upcoming presidential election in the US, do you believe any of the candidates offer any hope for a change of political, economic or foreign policy direction?

The government is not run by presidents. It's run by several hundred assistant secretaries, and they have nominal bosses called cabinet secretaries ... when you get elected, you're excited and want to get going and you've got to get all of these appointees through the Senate, you end up having to appoint the people the Senate's going to confirm. Otherwise, you never have a government. So unless the revolution also changed the Senate, so that they were to say, "Yes, let's appoint all of these people who will bring change, and undermine all of our relationships with the power structure, the people who give the political contributions to keep us in office, let's wreck all that and appoint somebody who's going to make change," that's not going to happen!

Goldman Sachs Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving... To The Clintons

By now we all know that Goldman Sachs is the gift that keeps on giving to the Clintons. Whether it's paying millions out for speeches, investing in family member's failing hedge fund ventures, or donating hundreds of thousands to the Clinton Foundation, Goldman seems to be keeping a close relationship with the family.

What's a more fun development to watch (other than to see Lloyd Blankfein lose money invested with a Clinton son-in-law) is how persistent The Intercept is being with Hillary about Goldman. Every chance it gets, The Intercept has a reporter asking Clinton about Goldman related items, and of course they never get an answer.

Earlier this year The Intercept caught up with Hillary and asked if the transcripts of the speeches given to Goldman would be released. Clinton's response was just to laugh of course, because as we all know, those will never be released... on purpose anyway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that Clinton's very wounded presidential campaign is about to become....more wounded.

Bernie Sanders may well be right, to contest this all the way; by November, Clinton may have to "retire" from public life, if certain revelations come forward, and are proven true.

Pleading for Peace in Chicago: ‘We Could Be Looking at a Blood Bath’

During Memorial Day weekend, this city reopens its Lake Michigan beaches, regular fireworks displays start at Navy Pier and the downtown streets and spruced-up Riverwalk are crowded with tourists.

But the holiday weekend is often seen here as the start of heightened violence, as well. That has been particularly worrying this year to community leaders and city officials, as they grapple with a rise in gun violence that has traumatized some neighborhoods and left city officials searching for new ways to subdue street crime.

“If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath,” said the Rev. Corey Brooks, a pastor on the city’s South Side, a mostly African-American area where some of the shootings have been concentrated. “If something doesn’t happen, I fear that we’re potentially looking at one of the worst summers we’ve ever had.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though, from a standpoint of concretely and effectively addressing this issue, Rom Emanuel has been a colossal, epic fail as mayor of this city.

The alleged "educational" system in the city has utterly failed these kids; so have the drug and gang policies, at the state, city, and Federal levels.

Urban gangs give these kids the opportunity to make money, selling drugs, and give them a sense of identity which sometimes their (frequently broken) families can not.

I have to wonder; how well can these kids read and write a standard English?!? How are their math skills?!? And if they don't have proficiencies in reading and math, who is going to want to hire them, and for what kinds of jobs?

How many "shovel ready" jobs exist in Chicago which the construction unions will allow unskilled, non-union members take?!?

There is a hideous overlap of problems here, and I hope that the community can find effective coping strategies to keep the city calm this summer, but were I a betting woman, I would not bet on that happening.

Venezuela Drifts Into New Territory: Hunger, Blackouts and Government Shutdown

The courts? Closed most days. The bureau to start a business? Same thing. The public defender’s office? That’s been converted into a food bank for government employees.

Step by step, Venezuela has been shutting down.

This country has long been accustomed to painful shortages, even of basic foods. But Venezuela keeps drifting further into uncharted territory.

In recent weeks, the government has taken what may be one of the most desperate measures ever by a country to save electricity: A shutdown of many of its offices for all but two half-days each week.

But that is only the start of the country’s woes. Electricity and water are being rationed, and huge areas of the country have spent months with little of either.

Many people cannot make international calls from their phones because of a dispute between the government and phone companies over currency regulations and rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot see how this can ultimately end well, or that Maduro will be able to remain in power that much longer.

But I do hope that the government which replaces that of Maduro will be able to meet the needs of the suffering Venezuelan people, and as quickly as humanly possible.

ANALYSISThe Zombie Voter Apocalypse: California Refuses to Admit Its Voter Fraud Problem

Hollywood has always loved making films about the walking dead, but in Southern California it appears they have a real life problem with “zombie” voters.

An investigation by CBSLA2 and KCAL9 found that hundreds of deceased persons are still on voter registration rolls in the area, and that many of these names have been voting for years in Los Angeles.

Julita Abutin, died in 2006 but voted in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014.

For example, John Cenkner died in 2003, according to Social Security Administration records, yet he voted in the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2010 elections. His daughter told the station that she was “astounded” and couldn’t “understand how anybody” could get away with this.

The investigation revealed that 265 deceased persons voted in Southern California, 215 of them in Los Angeles County. Thirty-two were repeat voters, with eight posthumously-cast ballots each. One woman who died in 1988 has been voting for 26 years, including in the 2014 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

California's problem is hardly unique to the American voting process.

If you want to see something that will truly amaze you, find the video presentation "Hacking Democracy",about Bev Harris' journey through the electronic electoral process; this is an absolute eye-opener on how easy it is to hack American voting machines. She is the webmaster of blackboxvoting.org, and a site you need to share with all your friends.

Silencing the United States as It Prepares for War

The breathtaking record of perfidy is so mutated in the public mind, wrote the late Harold Pinter, that it “never happened …Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. It didn’t matter … “. Pinter expressed a mock admiration for what he called “a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.”

Take Obama. As he prepares to leave office, the fawning has begun all over again. He is “cool”. One of the more violent presidents, Obama gave full reign to the Pentagon war-making apparatus of his discredited predecessor. He prosecuted more whistleblowers – truth-tellers – than any president. He pronounced Chelsea Manning guilty before she was tried. Today, Obama runs an unprecedented worldwide campaign of terrorism and murder by drone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Mr. Pilger that what Donald Trump has been criticising, and quite reasonably, are the effects of illegal immigration on this country, in terms of the financial burden it places on the US.

But on that issue of alleged "choice" of candidates, he is absolutely correct. The Kabuki-like process of American elections gives the people of this country the "illusion" that they, through the process, are at least somewhat in control of the national dialogue; they are not, in any meaningful way, whatsoever.

It is the corporations, who fund the election processes, at state and national levels, who ultimately chose the candidates.

And those candidates are vetted, not on their ability to lift the American people up, or address their needs and concerns; they are vetted on how well they can keep those promises to those corporations which fund them, and that - my friend - is the bottom line here.

Monsanto Loses Major PCBs Poisoning Lawsuit, Forced to Pay $46 Million to Victims

Three plaintiffs have been awarded $17.5 million in damages caused by Monsanto and three other companies for negligence in the production of PCBs.
A jury voting 10-2 in St. Louis found Monsanto, Pfizer, Solutia, and Pharmacia must pay the plaintiffs and assessed an additional $29 million in punitive damages against Monsanto for its continued selling of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, after the compound had been banned, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Plaintiffs in this case — three of nearly 100 involved in litigation, some of whom died — said they developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from exposure to PCBs.

“All of us could pretty much agree that Monsanto was negligent,” said juror Nathan Nevius in the Post-Dispatch.

Gates Foundation 'doubling down' on Common Core

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation says it is "doubling down" on its efforts to help teachers adapt to the Common Core education standards.

"Far too many districts report that identifying or developing Common Core-aligned materials is a challenge, meaning that teachers spend their time adapting or creating curriculum, developing lessons, and searching for supplemental materials," Gates Foundation CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann writes in an open letter. "So, we're doubling down on our efforts to make sure teachers have what they need to make the most of their unique capabilities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

reported at breitbart.com, last year:

Parents of high-ability students are demanding their San Francisco school board restore their courses for high achievers, which have been set aside while schools in the district switched over to the Common Core standards. Changes to the curriculum have included pushing Algebra I out of middle school and into the high school freshman year, as well as eliminating honors classes in both middle school and ninth grade, reports SFGate. Additionally, the evaluation process used by the district to identify high achievers—GATE (Gifted and Talented Education Program)—has been suspended since that system relied on state standardized tests, which were also postponed during the switch to Common Core. “The angry parents, however, accused the district of dumbing down instruction and ignoring or holding back smart students to focus on the needs of those at the bottom end of the achievement gap,” says a news report about a meeting of parents with the school board. Academic standards experts—some of whom wrote the old, highly-acclaimed California standards—warned several years ago that Common Core would “dumb down” curricula in the name of social justice and closing the achievement gap between minority and white students.

That achievement gap addressed in the above article can be successfully addressed in many other ways.

But the cold, hard reality here is that when people do not learn critical thinking, or have the ability to analyze information, they will swallow, literally, anything the government has to say, and that is why the Bill & Melinda Gates are "doubling down" on shoving this program down kids', and their parents' throats.

A passive, medically doped up American population will not issue even a murmur of dissent, no matter how economically and soul-crippling those decisions coming out of DC may be which affect them, and that is the ultimate goal of Common Core; the creation of a populace unable to think, and totally accepting of every governmental edict, no matter how evil or morally wrong.

Secret Text in Senate Bill Would Give FBI Warrantless Access to Email Records

A PROVISION SNUCK INTO the still-secret text of the Senate’s annual intelligence authorization would give the FBI the ability to demand individuals’ email data and possibly web-surfing history from their service providers without a warrant and in complete secrecy.

If passed, the change would expand the reach of the FBI’s already highly controversial national security letters. The FBI is currently allowed to get certain types of information with NSLs — most commonly, information about the name, address, and call data associated with a phone number or details about a bank account.

Since a 2008 Justice Department legal opinion, the FBI has not been allowed to use NSLs to demand “electronic communication transactional records,” such as email subject lines and other metadata, or URLs visited.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent people already know NOT to say anything in their emails or Facebook posts, that is not the most vanilla information possible to share.

And they know that their "on line behaviour" is already tracked by the Federal government.

In my case, under the First Amendment to the Constitution, I read a lot of the foreign press in English, because it is there that one can generally discern most clearly, what the US government is up to. And to date, my reading cannot be construed as "illegal", under the First Amendment.

And the bad guys have already encrypted their electronics communications to the degree that they have become impenetrable to Federal agencies' attempts to break them.

So what is this about?!? Most likely, gleaning trade and proprietary information for their corporate buddies, to enhance their financial and professional "edge".

It does not have to do with real national security, in any way, shape, or manner. If it did, why would the text of this law need to remain secret?!?

NATO in Montenegro: Securing the Rear Before Barbarossa II?

The strategic importance of Montenegro is inversely proportional to its size. With it, NATO will have full control of the Adriatic Sea, finish the encirclement of Serbia, and be emboldened to pursue a more aggressive stance towards Russia.

Last week, the government of Montenegro signed a protocol on joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. If ratified by the Alliance’s other 28 members – and it will be – the membership may become a formality by the end of this year. While the country has a population fewer than 700,000 and no more than 1,500 members of the military, the reason NATO wants Montenegro is not its military might, but in equal measures strategic location and symbolism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so, the encirclement of Russia continues apace, courtesy of NATO and the US government.

When the war with Russia will begin, I cannot tell you; however, this has moved from an "if" to "when" status at lightning speed, with current developments.

Whoever takes the Oath of Office to be the President of the United states will happen mid-January of 2017.

If the White House's internal polling indicates in any way that Trump may well win the November election, Democrats may want to inflict the most massive collateral damage they can on his presidency, by giving him a war against Russia, started before his presidency, coupled with an horrific economic collapse.

"I'm the king of debt. I love debt." - Trump, 2016.

......we can already conclude that Trump’s business operation aimed at dodging tens of millions of dollars in federal taxes – lost taxes that would have to be made up by increasing the burden on the middle class, who often pay withholding taxes and cannot afford the offshore tax havens, expensive lawyers and accountants used by predatory plutocrats like Trump.

At the heart of this scam was a slick trick to transform the purchase of a $50 million ownership stake in Trump Soho into a loan. This maneuver, which is seen by many tax experts as simply illegal, shows us what Trump means when he says that he loves debt. The US tax code notoriously rewards debt and punishes equity, and Trump has fully embraced crushing debt, relieved by periodic write-downs at the expense of others, as his way of life.

In addition, Trump’s agent in this entire matter turns out to be one Felix Sater of Bayrock Group, a shadowy mob figure who represented him in the dodgy and convoluted negotiations. Trump is currently so anxious to put distance between himself and Sater that he may have lied under oath by vehemently insisting that he could not recall who Sater is.

Emails Show TPP 'Collusion' Between Big Banks & Obama Administration

A series of emails released Friday show what activists describe as "collusion" between U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and Wall Street executives to push for the passage the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The emails (pdf), obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the group Rootstrikers, which organizes against money in politics, include a message to Froman from a managing director at Goldman Sachs urging him to push for "robust commitments" on Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions—which allow private corporations to sue governments for perceived loss of profits—to be included in the divisive trade deal.

"I wanted to underscore how important it is for the financial services industry to get robust commitments on ISDS in the agreement... denying our industry the same rights as enjoyed by every other sector would be terribly unfortunate," the email states.

First "Shocking" Deposition In Clinton Email Case Reveals She Did Not Use A Password

Q: Do you know if this setup would have been any different from the setup of other employees?
A: Yes, this would have been different.
Q: How would it have been different?
A: My understanding is that most of the employees’ computers in the State Department are connected through the State Department’s OpenNet e-mail system …
Q: So this would have been separate from the OpenNet system?
A: Correct.

He was asked why he had proposed this solution, and he said it was “For ease of access” and, “as far as I knew, there was no requirement for her to be connected to our system” (even though he had earlier said that her having an email address assigned to her in the State Department’s system, the OpenNet system, was “required”). He said that the “ease of access” would be because of there being “fewer passwords.”

First Deposition Testimony from Clinton Email Discovery Released

Judicial Watch today released the deposition transcript of Ambassador Lewis Lukens, former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the State Department’s executive secretariat. The transcript is available here. Amb. Lukens was deposed last week as part of the discovery granted to Judicial Watch by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in response to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured, non-government email system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).

Lukens is the first of seven depositions of former Clinton top aides and State Department officials that Judicial Watch has scheduled over the next four weeks. Also to be deposed are Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, as well as top State Department official Patrick Kennedy, and former State IT employee Bryan Pagliano.

BOMBSHELL: Hillary Clinton Doesn't Know How To Use A Computer

Daily Caller

From the start of her term in January 2009, State Department officials grappled with Hillary Clinton’s ignorance of the use of basic computers. In a January 2009 email from Lukens to the department’s Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy, the foreign service officer said Clinton didn’t know how to use a computer for emails.

Citing a conversation Lukens had with Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, he wrote, "She says the problem is Hillary does not know how to use a computer to do emails — only Blackberry."

Judicial Watch attorney Michael Bekesha asked Lukens if State Department policy barred the use of personal cell phones in the Secretary’s official office suite, which is one of the most tightly secured facilities in government. The National Security Agency even rebuffed multiple attempts by Clinton to carry her Blackberry into her office.

Lukens explained the prohibition:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This looks like the start of a "She was just stupid" defense for Hillary.

State Dept IG Finds Hillary Clinton Violated Government Records Act and Refused to Speak to Investigators

Politico reports that the State Department inspector general has concluded that Hillary Clinton violated State’s record keeping protocols. The finding is contained in a much anticipated report provided to Congress today.

Significantly, the report also reveals that Clinton and her top aides at State — Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, Huma Abedin, and possibly others — refused to cooperate with the IG’s investigation despite the IG’s requests that they submit to interviews.

The report is devastating, although it transparently strains to soften the blow. For example, it concludes that State’s “longstanding systemic weaknesses” in record keeping “go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State.” Yet, it cannot avoid finding that Clinton’s misconduct is singular in that she, unlike her predecessors, systematically used private e-mail for the purpose of evading record keeping requirements.

Vaccine Thimerosal Preservative Causes Autism. CDC Forced to Release Proof They Knew…

Over 100 Freedom of Records Act (FOIA) requests have finally forced the euphemist US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to admit a widely used vaccine preservative is the equivalent of a neurological armageddon.

With help from PhD Scientist and Biochemist, Brian Hooker, the agency has finally had to reveal that they have known for years that thimerosal, which was banned in 1999, but still used in over 60 vaccines, causes autism. Robert F. Kennedy has been trying to alert the public of the same troublesome findings that Hooker has unveiled, but he is often dismissed, or worse, made into a media fool by the pharmaceutical industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There should be a class action law suit brought forward by the parents of every kid who got vaccines with thimerosal, and ultimately became autistic,against the CDC and the pharmaceutical companies which included Thimerosal in their vaccines, and sue them out of existence, for the damage they have caused.

Israeli Weapons Flow to Azerbaijan

In early April, as renewed fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region made headlines in Turkey, there was little talk of the crucial role of Israeli weapons in the clashes. Only the daily Hurriyet reported on Azerbaijan’s use of the Israeli Harop armed drone, which generated Armenian protests.

Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesperson Omer Celik summarized why the issue should be important to the press: “Azerbaijan’s battle is our battle; their martyrs are our martyrs.” Indeed, Azerbaijan consistently scores as Turkey’s closest friend in Turkish public opinion polls, while Israel maintains its status as a serious threat in the same polls.

Liar, liar! Clinton KNEW email was hacked

The State Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) delivered a sharp rebuke to Hillary Clinton yesterday, in a report that heavily criticized her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

But the report included more than evidence of Clinton’s bad judgment.

It proved she has been lying about her emails for months.

Despite repeated denials from Clinton that her emails were compromised, the OIG report concluded that she likely knew her server was hacked — and went to lengths to keep from reporting it.

Already, Clinton faces questions about her trustworthiness, with months of polling showing voters give her low marks for integrity.

Erdogan Unleashes More Threats on Europe as EU-Turkey Deal Falters

An historic deal between the European Union and Turkey detailing the administration of Syrian refugees continues to unravel amid concerns by Brussels regarding Ankara’s quickly deteriorating record on human rights.

Recently, European leaders nearly unanimously signaled an unwillingness to approve visa-free travel for Turkish residents within the Schengen zone, citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s persecution of domestic opposition and dissent. Europe’s decision to retreat from offering Turkey visa-free travel, a critical component of the EU-Turkey refugee negotiations, tipped Erdogan into a fit of rage on Tuesday.
Speaking at a World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Erdogan threatened to unleash a flood of refugees

Judge Seals All Video Depositions In Clinton Email Case

A U.S. judge on Thursday ordered that all videotaped depositions in a lawsuit over Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s private email server remain sealed, The Hill newspaper reported.

In a brief order on Thursday evening, Judge Emmet Sullivan granted the request of lawyers for Clinton’s ex-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, who had worried that video clips of her interview could be used for political purposes, according to The Hill.

And Sullivan went further, ordering all videotaped depositions to remain sealed until he ordered otherwise, the newspaper said

MPs warn voters being 'conned' as Brussels keeps plans for EU army secret until after referendum

British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.

Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.

Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army.

The backlash came as it emerged plans to move towards the creation of a European army are being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is so horrific about this plan for a unified, European Army that Brits are not supposed to know about it until the day AFTER the referendum next month?!?

IF I were a Brit, I would want to know, and right the heck now, what Brussels had in store for this Army, and what the British commitment to it would be.

Hillary has a NEW excuse on why she used her own private email server

Hillary told Chuck Todd today that she used her own personal email (she keeps saying ‘personal email’ because she’s spinning. It’s not just personal email, it’s her own private personal emails server! And no Secretary of State did that!) because of technical problems with her State.gov email or something. Yeah, that’s the new excuse.

SPECIAL OPERATIONS TROOPS ASSAULTED DOWNTOWN TAMPA … ALL TO THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE

On Wednesday, Special Operations troops from more than a dozen countries jumped out of helicopters, rappelled from buildings and expended hundreds of rounds of ammunition as they attempted to rescue the mayor of this Florida city.

The operation was, of course, an exercise, but it was also a public spectacle for a force that has tried desperately to remain in the shadows despite now being at the forefront of America’s wars.

Aside from U.S. Special Operations forces, including Navy SEALs, Marine Raiders and Army Green Berets, countries such as Ireland and Jordan also participated in the exercise. Many of the participants covered their faces, and only a select few were allowed to speak to the media afterward.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War - as the Prussian General Von Clauswitz used to say - is diplomacy carried on by other means.

And unfortunately, US foreign policy has been murderously transformed in the 21st century to an era of regime change, and the illegal and immoral acquisition of foreign resources to which the US, and US and multinational corporations, have absolutely no moral right.

We are no longer a nation of laws, but decrees and Executive Orders, courtesy of the alleged "Divine Right" of the President, who can order extrajudicial assassinations just as easily as one might order a piece of pie at a restaurant. And decades ago, H. Rap Brown made the observation that "Violence is as American as cherry pie." Unfortunately, when it comes to US governmental misappropriation of military power, he was absolutely correct.

There has to be a peaceful reckoning here, and a collective moral, and spiritual awakening of the American people; how dare this government be doing such things while our Vets sleep homeless in our streets; our infrastructure crumbles, and jobs keep leaving this country?!?!?

Sadly, We the People are no longer represented at all by our alleged State and Federal Representatives; this is a government of the corporations; for the corporations, and by the corporations. Except for giving the appearance of participating in a democratic republic, by that Kabuki-like process of "voting" ( for two individuals who have been vetted by the major corporations who have been assured that they will get everything they want from those candidates, ), We the People have become irrelevant.

In looking at the two presumptive Presidential candidates, I am frankly looking the person who seems least likely to start World War III, and that person is Donald Trump.

Clinton has already threatened to start a war with Iran. As reported at glolbalresearch.ca on the 15th of this month:

Note: This piece which is of extreme relevance to the US election campaign was originally published in July 2015. On July 3, 2015, presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an “existential threat to Israel… I hope we are able to get a deal next week that puts a lid on (its) nuclear weapons program.” Even if we do get such a deal, we will still have major problems from Iran. They are the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism. They use proxies like Hezbollah to sow discord and create insurgencies to destabilize governments. They are taking more and more control of a number of nations in the region and they pose an existential threat to Israel. We…have to turn our attention to working with our partners to try to reign in and prevent this continuing Iranian aggressiveness. Fact: US and Israeli intelligence both say Iran’s nuclear program has no military component. No evidence whatever suggests Tehran wants one. Plenty indicates otherwise. As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying: The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security. (O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense. I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror. No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents. Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.” “I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.” She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”

Iranian leadership is many things, but stupid is not one of them; Iran will not attack Israel because they know that if they do this, the country will be reduced to a puddle of green glass by US/Israeli counter attacks.

But in this equation, there is a 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bosedorfer baby grand piano, which Clinton is avoiding talking about like the plague, and that is Russia.

And unfortunately, when Clinton spews this kind of hubristic rhetoric, none of the alleged correspondents covering her speeches ever has the gonadal tissue to ask her, "If Iran is attacked, what will Russia do?!?"

And please do not believe, for one second, that Russia's leadership, from Putin, or his successor will be on down, will just hold hands and sing "Kumbyah" if such a thing should happen as a US war against Iran.

Russian political and military leaders have been very clear, and very public, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid, militarily. And right now, the US military doesn't have the money, the troop strength, the weaponry,or the manufacturing to ensure a positive outcome to a war against Russia.

The fact that Secretary Clinton would make this threat against Iran without really knowing what the facts are on the ground, in order to get "better into bed" with Israeli Prime Minister's ultra-rightist regime, scares the stuffing out of me. There is a willful recklessness in her nature, as demonstrated by the email scandal, which makes her unworthy to be the President of this country.

ALAN GREENSPAN: VENEZUELA DECLARES MARTIAL LAW, AMERICA IS NEXT

Alan Greenspan issued a dire warning about the U.S. economy during an interview with Fox News on Thursday. Greenspan said that as Venezuela descends into martial law, the U.S. is heading in the same direction.

Greenspan warned that the U.S. has “a global problem of a shortage of productivity growth” which is leading it into an impending disaster.

Foxbusiness.com reports:

“What the Fed does at this particular stage is less important than what the markets are doing. And what the markets are beginning to show us is acceleration in money supply for the first time in a very long time… We have a global problem of a shortage in productivity growth and it’s not only the United States but it’s pretty much around the world and it’s being caused by the fact that the populations everywhere in the Western world, for example, are aging and we are not committing enough of our resources to fund that,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Long term economic growth cannot happen if decent jobs keep getting off-shored/outsourced; that is one aspect of the problem about which Greenspan is noticeably reluctant to speak.

If the guarantee of decent jobs after college doesn't pan out, women in long term relationships postpone, or avoid pregnancies completely; it is just that simple.

And I, for one, do not blame them; however, Greenspan seems to be waiving his finger at them, as though they were the problem, which they are not.

Rational people don't want to bring kids into this world unless they have some hope of adequately and decently taking care of them, because jobs are there with which to feed, clothe, and educate them.

JUDGE COMPARES DRUG WAR TO SLAVERY, BRAVELY REFUSES TO PUT CONVICTED DRUG FELON IN PRISON

It appears that America has awakened to the problem of mass incarceration–an issue underscored by the fact that the U.S. holds less than 5 percent of the world’s population but houses about 22 percent of the world’s prisoners. Congress is now making a token effort at criminal justice reform, including the reduction of mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent offenders, but even this faces opposition from the most fervent police state crusaders.

In the face of inaction, one New York judge is stepping outside the box to breathe life into a much-needed national debate. Judge Frederick Block of the Federal District Court chose not to send a woman to prison who was convicted of felony drug charges, instead sentencing her to probation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo for Judge Frederick Block having done the right thing here.

And believe me, I am the last person breathing who could ever be characterised as "soft on crime".

But the prison industrial complex in this country has grown completely out of control, particularly for people who are non-violent offenders.

As reported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics 22 April, 2014:

Examines the 5-year post-release offending patterns of persons released from state prisons in 2005 by offender characteristics, prior criminal history, and commitment offense. It provides estimates on the number and types of crimes former inmates commit both prior to their imprisonment and after release. The report includes different measures of recidivism, including a new arrest, court adjudication, conviction, and incarceration for either a new sentence or a technical violation. It also documents the extent to which the released prisoners committed crimes in states other than the one that released them. Data are from the Bureau of Justice Statistics' Recidivism Study of State Prisoners Released in 2005, which tracked a sample of former inmates from 30 states for five years following release in 2005. The findings are based on prisoner records obtained from the state departments of corrections through the National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) and criminal history records obtained through requests to the FBI's Interstate Identification Index (III) and state repositories via the International Justice and Public Safety Network (Nlets). Highlights: Among state prisoners released in 30 states in 2005— About two-thirds (67.8%) of released prisoners were arrested for a new crime within 3 years, and three-quarters (76.6%) were arrested within 5 years. Within 5 years of release, 82.1% of property offenders were arrested for a new crime, compared to 76.9% of drug offenders, 73.6% of public order offenders, and 71.3% of violent offenders. More than a third (36.8%) of all prisoners who were arrested within 5 years of release were arrested within the first 6 months after release, with more than half (56.7%) arrested by the end of the first year. Two in five (42.3%) released prisoners were either not arrested or arrested once in the 5 years after their release. A sixth (16.1%) of released prisoners were responsible for almost half (48.4%) of the nearly 1.2 million arrests that occurred in the 5-year follow-up period.

Let those numbers sink in for a while.

This means that the American prison industrial complex is one, complete epic fail. And it is recidivism which keeps the money flowing for programs which, looking at those numbers, absolutely are not working.

The country of Sweden is emptying its prisons, and why?!?

Because their total approach is rehabilitation of the criminal, so when they get out, they do not re-offend, or at least not anywhere near the rate at which US criminals do.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

EVERYTHING!!

It's Over: Even MSNBC Turns On Hillary - "Stop Lying, Stop Digging"

To say that Hillary did not react properly to the damning State Department Inspector General report which yesterday found that she broke numerous government rules by setting up her own email server, would be a gruesome understatement.

As a reminder, Hillary's kneejerk response was to plead ignorance and claim that she was merely doing what her predecessors had done before, a claim that was promptly refuted, which was followed by her spokesman Brian Fallon appearing on CNN and saying that the Obama appointed IG had an "Anti-Clinton" bias by releasing the report.

Things however turned decidedly worse for Hillary when even the rabidly pro-Clinton channel MSNBC decided to tear Hillary apart for what is now an insurmountable mountain of lies.

It took place early today when MSNBC host Joe Scarborough slammed Hillary Clinton, calling on the Democratic presidential front-runner to "stop lying" about her personal email account.

VIDEO: COP SNAPS, ALMOST HITS PEDESTRIAN IN CROSSWALK, THEN ATTACKS HIM IN A FIT OF ROAD RAGE

An infuriating video was uploaded to Facebook this week showing an off-duty Boston cop tackling a small older man in a fit of road rage. According to multiple witnesses, the cop nearly hit the older gentlemen as he drove through a crosswalk.

After almost being run over by the incompetent cop, the older man, who was on foot, simply tapped the cop’s window with his umbrella to alert him to the fact that he nearly hit him. This tapping on the window set the cop off into a fit of rage, leading to him chasing down, tackling, and assaulting the innocent man.

When the older gentleman saw the raging lunatic jump out of his vehicle and chase him, he naturally ran. This set the cop off even more, and when he finally caught up to the man, he tackled him, shoved his face into the pavement, and put his knee in his back.

The video, taken by a vigilant citizen, Stephen Harlowe, starts as the cop is ramming the man’s head into the sidewalk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do NOT got to Boston, right now, for any reason.

That older gentleman could have been any of us.

IF you have been looking to vacation in Boston, or hold a symposium there, do not do it; being in Boston can obviously be very hazardous to one's health these days.

Send a letter to Boston's Mayer, Martin J. Walsh, including the site for the video, as the reason why you will no longer consider his city a safe place, either to convention, or vacation.

Because only when cities are financially crucified enough to really feel the economic pain of a boycott will behaviour like this begin to change, on the part of city cops.

Brussels fears Brexit will be ‘THE END’ of EU

Brussels fears Brexit will be ‘THE END’ of EU due to devastating domino effect

EUROPEAN leaders are scrambling to avoid a total collapse of the EU amid fears Brexit will inspire other countries to quit the union.

Senior officials are terrified a ‘Leave’ vote in next month’s referendum will cause a domino effect in the 28-state bloc - with one official revealing Brexit will be a “historical disaster.”

High-ranking Eurocrats have held a series of meetings in recent weeks to thrash out how the union will exist without Britain and how to stop other countries from following suit.

One senior French official told the Financial Times: “Playing down or minimising the consequences would put Europe at risk. The principle of consequences is very important — to protect Europe."

The president of the European Patent Office (EPO), Benoit Battistelli, has already been on the receiving end of an official censure from his board, a series of strikes, several highly critical news reports, and a zero per cent confidence rating. But an announcement sent to all staff on Wednesday topped the lot.

"Deliberate damage to personal property of the President," read the subject line in an email sent from EPO vice president Željko Topi? and seen by The Register.

"I would like to draw your attention to an incident which happened at some time yesterday in the non-public underground parking area of the Isar Building.

"The bicycle belonging to President Battistelli was damaged to an extent that even the brakes were tampered with. This was without doubt a deliberate act of vandalism."

FLASHBACK - EX-DOJ OFFICIAL: OBAMA SIGNALING FBI TO BACK OFF HILLARY

President Obama tried to downplay the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for handling some of the government’s most sensitive information, but a former top Justice Department official says Obama’s comments ignore the law and are an obvious attempt to convince the FBI not to recommend charges against Clinton.

On Fox News Sunday, anchor Chris Wallace asked Obama if he was convinced that national security was not compromised by Clinton’s handling of sensitive information.

“Here’s what I know: Hillary Clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy,” Obama said.

Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Victoria Toensing is appalled by that explanation.

“Doesn’t this former constitutional law professor know the law?” she asked.

Judicial Watch Statement on State Department OIG Report on Hillary Clinton’s Email Practices

It was Judicial Watch’s litigation that almost certainly forced the State Department to publicly disclose Hillary Clinton’s secret email account that is now the subject of a scathing Inspector General Report. A statement by the State Department in a February 2, 2015, status report in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit was the first notice to the public and the court that State had failed to thoroughly search all of Clinton’s email records: “[The State Department] has discovered that additional searches for documents potentially responsive to the FOIA must be conducted.” That statement was the first acknowledgement of Clinton’s secret email. And now, nearly a year and a half later, the State Department’s own Inspector General is confirming the gravity of Clinton’s end run around the law. Judicial Watch already uncovered much of the information cited in this report.

Oregon babysitter accused of beating toddler avoids charges

The idiot who did this confessed but in Oregon he can't be prosecuted because the baby can't talk yet. This SUCKS!

A babysitter accused of bruising a battered baby won’t face any charges — because the infant can’t speak up.

Even though Joshua Marbury’s 1-year-old son was covered in bruises and scars from the babysitter’s alleged beating, the accused abuser is protected by a 2012 Oregon Court of Appeals ruling that discourages prosecutors from filing charges since the tyke can’t talk.

Marbury was furious as the charges were dropped, after baby Jacob had suffered a severe smack that left a black eye, bruises and a stinging palm print on the child’s face.

Hillary Clinton's shrinking email defense

While an FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server continues, the State Department's Office of Inspector General has raised the stakes with the release of a remarkable report finding that Clinton's actions violated State Department policies and were inconsistent with federal record-keeping laws.

The report also discloses new details relevant to Clinton's motives and her assertion that the use of a private server was simply a matter of convenience. While criminal charges still remain highly unlikely, the inspector general's report is significant and unquestionably damaging to Clinton's public defense.

The Mexico Way

Clearly, Trump is accusing the Mexican ruling class—the politicians and billionaires like Carlos Slim, the largest single shareholder of The New York Times—of dumping their surplus population on the United States.

That Mexico’s elites are outmaneuvering America’s leaders strikes Trump as a bad thing. Yet, to the American media, the very existence of a Mexican ruling caste with interests different from those of American citizens doesn’t seem to register as a concept with which they are able to deal. Sure, Mexico is a country of over 120 million people that shares a 1,950-mile border with the U.S., but it’s not, you know, Israel when it comes to being important to American interests.
