The U.S. has the best Congress and White House that money can buy

Think tanks sprout like weeds in Washington. The latest is the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, which is engaged in a pre-launch launch and is attracting some media coverage all across the political spectrum. The Institute is named after the sixth US President John Quincy Adams, who famously made a speech while Secretary of State in which he cautioned that while the United States of America would always be sympathetic to the attempts of other countries to fight against dominance by the imperial European powers, “she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.”

The Quincy Institute self-defines as a foundation dedicated to a responsible and restrained foreign policy with the stated intention of “mov[ing] US foreign policy away from endless war and toward vigorous diplomacy in the pursuit of international peace.” It is seeking to fund an annual budget of $5-6 million, enough to employ twenty or more staffers.

Jeffrey Epstein: how US media – with one star exception – whitewashed the story

Reiter warned Brown what would happen were she to continue digging: “Somebody’s going to call your publisher and the next thing you know you are going to be assigned to the obituaries department.”

Brown did not heed his warning. She flung herself at the investigation and eventually persuaded Reiter to go on record. Her resulting, award-winning three-part series last November exposed a vast operation in which 80 potential victims were identified, some as young as 13 and 14 at the time of the alleged abuse. She persuaded eight to tell their stories.

Radical Feminist Raves: "We Need To Kill All Men"

Somebody must've not been paying attention in biology class.

A rant from feminist YouTube star named Jenny McDermott has gone viral on Twitter over the past few days. In it, McDermott tells her audience that, to create the ideal conditions for the survival of the human race, we must kill all men and male babies.

RICHARD PENDLEBURY: Will Robert Maxwell's daughter spill paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's secrets to FBI? Rumours swirl that Ghislaine Maxwell is ready to co-operate US authorities

Ghislaine Maxwell was last night reported to be ready to co-operate with the American authorities in their ongoing investigation into Prince Andrew’s late friend Jeffrey Epstein.

The socialite daughter of the disgraced late media tycoon Robert Maxwell has been accused of recruiting underage girls for the financier Epstein, her benefactor and sometime boyfriend.

The 737 MAX Grounding Is Such A Disaster That Airlines Are Leasing 30-Year-Old 737-200s

With hundreds of 737 MAX planes still on the ground following two fatal crashes, airlines are frantically trying to lease available 737s to fill gaps left by the MAX. They’re so desperate that they’re leasing 737-200s, a variant that was discontinued in 1988.

Liberal media puzzled: Openly gay Brnabic & Weidel prefer hard work to aggressive PC campaigning

Western ultra-liberals and conservatives seem to forget the real European values, where tolerance is based on respect for a person’s private life and professional qualities are put above belonging to minority groups.

When two years ago, in June 2017, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic appointed Ana Brnabic (a 42-year-old openly gay person who worked for American and British NGOs, including USAid) to the position of prime minister, the Western media was stupefied. It actually took Western journalists a few days to get out of their stupor.

Jeffrey Epstein kept secret diaries which could come back to haunt Prince Andrew

Sources revealed Epstein kept a diary detailing his friendships with powerful associates – including Andrew and socialite Ghislaine Maxwell – as an “insurance policy”.

Epstein’s diary will be a source of great anxiety to her and the other senior royals.

Its existence emerged as lawyers for the victims look to obtain a statement from the Prince as part of ongoing investigations by various US law enforcement authorities.

Paul Craig Roberts Slams Dems & Western Media: "It's Open Season On All White People"

CJ Hopkins doesn’t say it, but he shows that within all of the Western countries in which the white core populations are experiencing fierce attack from anti-white ideologues in the media and governments that rule them, there is unity of voice from the media that “Trump is a White Supremacist who inspires Terrorism.”

This unity of voice is suspicious as there are many different possible explanations of the El Paso shooting. The unity of voice is so uniform—in some cases identical phrasing—and so repetitive that it certainly looks like an orchestration against Trump and raises suspicions that the shooting itself was an orchestration.

Norwegian Boeing engine falls apart MID-FLIGHT, scatters debris across Rome (PHOTOS)

A Norwegian Air Boeing 787 plane was forced to turn around in Rome and make an emergency landing after engine failure caused hundreds of fragments to rain down on vehicles, homes and people below.

One person, 25 vehicles and 12 houses were struck by fragments falling from the Dreamliner flight DY-7115 from Rome to Los Angeles. Pilots declared an emergency when it suffered single-engine failure at 3,000 feet shortly after takeoff on Saturday, and returned to Rome’s Fiumicino Airport 23 minutes after departure with 310 passengers and crew on board. There were no reported injuries.

It doesn’t take a tin-foil hat to smell a rat in Epstein’s ‘way too convenient’ death

The death of disgraced financier, pedophile and alleged blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein came just a day after more court documents were unsealed, leading to speculation he may have been “suicided” to stop his case from going to trial.

On Saturday morning, I was discussing Jeffrey Epstein with a friend. "He'll be bumped off and found dead in his cell," was my friend's prediction. "It won't come to court."

A few hours later, I went on Twitter to see what was happening in the world and I saw #EpsteinMurder trending.

The whole thing was quite uncanny.

Let's be honest: has there been a death of a high-profile prisoner whose expiration has been so unsurprising?

Everyone’s A Conspiracy Theorist, Whether They Know It Or Not

By Caitlin Johnstone

Plutocratic propaganda outlet MSNBC has just run a spin segment on the breaking news that the medical examiner’s determination of the cause of Jeffrey Epstein’s death is “pending further information”.

“Our sources are still saying that it looks like suicide, and this is going to set conspiracy theorists abuzz I fear,” said NBC correspondent Ken Dilanian. “NBC News has been hearing all day long that there are no indications of foul play, and that this looks like a suicide and that he hung himself in his cell.”

Dilanian, who stumbled over the phrase “conspiracy theorists” in his haste to get it in the first soundbyte, is a known asset of the Central Intelligence Agency. This is not a conspiracy theory, this is a well-documented fact. When I mentioned Dilanian’s CIA ties on MSNBC’s Twitter video, MSNBC deleted their tweet and then re-shared it without mentioning Dilanian’s name...

7 unanswered questions about Jeffrey Epstein’s death that the MSM needs to be talking about

Did Jeffrey Epstein commit suicide or was he murdered? This is a question that is being debated by millions of Americans right now, and without a doubt this is the biggest story of this news cycle. Unfortunately, the mainstream media is already dropping the ball. Instead of going wherever the evidence leads them, there already seems to be a tremendous effort to marginalize any explanations for his death other than “suicide”. And it may turn out that “suicide” is where the evidence takes us, but while things are unclear we should not be afraid to ask the hard questions.

Leaked letter reveals Huawei threat to pull out of NZ

In a letter to GCSB Minister Andrew Little and Communications Minister Kris Faafoi - leaked to Newstalk ZB - Huawei says that if it continues to be blocked from 5G upgrades, it may exit the New Zealand market.

The letter, from Huawei NZ managing director Yanek Fan - says it would be "arbitrary and capricious" to single out his company under a "country of origin" approach when others involved in 5G technology have links to China.

"This would have a significant effect on Huawei New Zealand's revenue, to the point where there is a real risk that Huawei New Zealand may not be able to continue to operate in the New Zealand market", the letter says.

The Huawei boss notes that his company's US rival Cisco, and its European rials Nokia Networks and Ericsson, all have Chinese joint ventures. And he notes that Nokia's joint venture, Nokia Shanghai Bell, is with the Chinese government, whereas Huawei is private.

Prison experts are stunned and angry that Jeffrey Epstein was taken off suicide watch

Even before his first suspected suicide try last month, Jeffrey Epstein was perhaps the most vulnerable man in the federal jail system: a wealthy and well-known financier accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls. He was, by all accounts, the kind of inmate who should have been under the closest possible supervision.

Instead, Epstein was taken off suicide watch in the days before he apparently took his own life, officials told NBC News, a decision that baffled former wardens and veterans of the federal prison system.

"For them to pull him off suicide watch is shocking,” Cameron Lindsay, a former warden who worked at three federal facilities, told NBC News. “For someone this high-profile, with these allegations and this many victims, who has had a suicide attempt in the last few weeks, you can take absolutely no chances.”

This Guy's Hilarious 'Looking for a Wife' Ad from 1865 Will Make You Want to Marry Him

Back in the 19th century, online dating wasn't a thing yet - no Tinder, no Match, no Craiglist - so people had to find other means to search for a mate. Apparently, advertising yourself in your local newspaper was the norm, and that's exactly what this 18-year-old guy did.

The Story of Sergeant John Clem, The Boy Soldier

John Clem was born on august 13, 1851. On April 12, 1861, at the outbreak of the Civil War, he was only nine years old. Less than a later, he attempted to enlist in the union army. He was turned down by both Ohio and Michigan regiments because he was too young, and the fact that he was small for his age, looking more like a six or seven year old.

Extra Bread: The Origins Of The Baker's Dozen

Many times, when you order a dozen rolls or loaves of bread at a bakery, you bring home 13 instead of 12. These bonus carbs are brought to you by the practice known as the "baker's dozen," a custom which dates back to medieval England. Contrary to popular belief that the bakers were redefining math to get more customers, the origin of the baker's dozen was more about covering their own rear ends than it was about customer satisfaction. It all started with the Assize of Bread and Ale Law.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Endless Connections

By Jon Rappoport

Assertions and speculations spread like wildfire. Epstein was murdered. He isn’t dead at all, he was ferreted out of jail and taken to Israel. He killed himself. The video cameras in jail malfunctioned (were turned off on purpose). Epstein paid off guards so he could engineer his covert escape. He’s dead, a victim of the rising Clinton body count. Trump is in the Epstein scandal up to his eyeballs. And so on.

I call your attention to two writers who are digging into Epstein’s seemingly endless, high-level connections. One is Wayne Madsen, whose recent article is posted at Intrepid Report: Politics and pedophilia: a demonic mix.

The other is Whitney Webb, at MintPress News: Mega Group, Maxwells and Mossad: The Spy Story at the Heart of the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal...

In First Footage Of Kashmir Protests Under Lockdown, Live Fire Rings Out

Despite Indian-administered Kashmir now on a complete communications blackout and security lockdown after its autonomy was revoked last Monday, videos of major protests and clashes with Indian troops in the Muslim stronghold have begun to emerge.

One video from the Jammu and Kashmir's (J&K) largest city and capital of Srinagar appears to show live gun fire used by security forces to disperse demonstrators, at the end of a protest which western media described as initially involving tens of thousands.

Amid troops dispersing tear gas, automatic fire can also be heard in some of the early videos to come out.

The BBC witnessed tear gas being used to disperse the largest protest since a lockdown was imposed in Indian-administered Kashmir – a protest the Indian government said didn’t happen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To Prime Ministers Modi and Khan; the people of Kashmir, deserve far better than they have been given, by the Indian government, or Pakistani agitators.

An I would like to modestly, and politely, suggest to India's Modi, that the Indian government could have gotten away with this, perhaps maybe 50 years ago, but not in the life of the 21st century's 24/7 news cycle.

That the the Indian government did not understand that the optics of such an attack, would ricochet around the world, with live footage, is a puzzle to me, because many of India's citizens become holders of US work visas because of their incredible knowledge wealth, and the way in which they are educated.

Epstein Suicided?

While there’s no direct evidence contained in the court record substantiating her accounts with prominent men, Giuffre did provide testimony and evidence to corroborate her claims of exploitation at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell through photographs, plane logs and even a medical record from Presbyterian Hospital in New York where Giuffre was taken by Epstein after a particularly abusive sex episode.
...
Some of the testimony released Friday is difficult to read, as when one 15-year-old Swedish girl, shaking and crying in fear, told a butler who worked for two of Epstein’s closest friends that she had been taken to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean and ordered to have sex with him and others. The butler, in a sworn statement, said the girl, visibly traumatized, told him that Epstein and Maxwell had physically threatened to harm her and seized her passport to keep her on the island, according to the butler’s statement.

Federal Judges Are Waging War On The Fourth Amendment

In 1984, as part of Ronald Reagan’s renewed war on drugs, the Drug Enforcement Administration launched Operation Pipeline. This program was inspired by the strategies employed by state troopers in New Mexico who, after pulling somebody over, asked specific questions designed to determine whether the driver might be a drug trafficker. Combined with the financial incentives of federal grants for drug enforcement and civil asset forfeiture laws, state and local police had strong new incentives to find reasons to stop vehicles and search for drugs. Operation Pipeline was meant, in part, to train officers how to legally harass drivers.

WATCH: Oprah: Mass Shootings A Symptom Of Lost ‘Values,’ Drift From ‘Moral Center’

On Wednesday night, billionaire Oprah Winfrey doled out some wisdom in the wake of recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that took the lives of 31 innocents. The media mogul took a deeper approach than we are used to from Hollywood, taking aim at the "morality" issue plaguing the United States.

At another point Navarro again raised his hands and told Vittert to back off, with Vittert mockingly asking if he should roll back off the set.

After Boss Says There’s No ‘P’ in ‘Hamster,’ Millennial Reportedly Starts Sobbing and Gets Mom on Speakerphone

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard a lot of stereotypes about the Millennial generation, which is loosely classified as the people born between the early 1980s and late 1990s.
Millennials are coddled, some people say. They’re ruining everything from focus groups, dinner dates, cruises and napkins to golf, soap bars, marriage and homeownership.

Knives Account for 3 Times as Many Murders as Rifles Do According to the FBI

After every mass shooting, politicians on the left clamber for increased gun control measures. They tell Republicans to “do the right thing” and “get something done.”
Lost in the noise, however, is what exactly should be done. And even more important, why.
For many politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike, gun control proposals are nothing more than cheap attempts to politicize tragedy. The most recent statistics from the FBI explain why.

Epstein Arkancided or he's the Scarlet Pimpernel. Why is it so Crowded on the Highway to Hell? Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Now we know why that 'conspiracy thinking is a crime' thing was booted up by the FBI. In any case, Epstein DID NOT kill himself. Epstein was/is a narcissistic sociopath. Under NO circumstances do people of this ilk take their own life.

On the matter of corruption, there is zero doubt that those FBI agents and CIA operatives and what have you from wherever, are unaware that a small handful of Stone Age Arabs DID NOT attack the United States on 9/11. It was a joint effort between Israel and rogue elements of US intelligence services, with some assistance by MI6... the Turks and sundry. The complete article by Warrior for Truth; Christopher Bollyn can no longer be found but, here is a little something by someone else.

He was running the world's biggest honey pot scheme for the Mossad. That's your bottom line for the whole escapade. Everything else is just window dressing and obfuscation.

Jeffrey Epstein Dead? I Seriously Doubt It!

I smell a rat here in terms of this "suicide" and several of my fellow Canadian bloggers have been all over this "suicide" and have posted some interesting material at their own blogs... I do want to start with an interesting report that Greencrow, who of course hails from the wild and untamed region of southern British Columbia, and writes the important blog: "Greencrow As The Crow Flies" at www.greencrowasthecrowflies.blogspot.com.... Here in fact is the link to Greencrow's own assessment of this "Epstein suicide" right here for my own readers to ponder:

THEY USED RANDOM TRAINING PHOTOS FOR THE EPSTEIN DEATH HOAX AND ONE OF THEM IS A PHOTO OF EMT'S TRAINING IN A NYFD GARAGE, WHERE THEY PARK THE FIRE TRUCKS. THEY SPLICED EPSTEIN ONTO THE GURNEY IN PLACE OF WHAT WAS PROBABLY A "RESUSCI ANNE" DOLL THAT WOULD BE USED FOR TRAINING. THE ORIGINATED IN AN NYFD GARAGE, AND NOT THE HOSPITAL, WHERE THE NEW YORK POST CLAIMED HE WAS TAKEN.
