BILLIONAIRE CLINTON FOUNDATION DONOR DENIED ENTRY INTO US BECAUSE OF TERROR TIES

Nigerian-Lebanese billionaire Gilbert Chagoury continues to be a thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton.

The multi-million dollar Clinton Foundation donor was denied entry into the U.S. last year because of his ties to a Lebanese organization that has allegedly given money to the terrorist group Hezbollah, The Los Angeles Times reports.

The news, which was based on interviews and government documents, comes weeks after emails surfaced showing that in 2009, a Clinton Foundation adviser asked Hillary Clinton’s State Department deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, for a favor on Chagoury’s behalf.

The request for favors is evidence that the Clinton Foundation operates as a massive pay-for-play scheme, the Clintons’ critics have claimed.

Trump Can Sink Hillary if He Reveals These 6 Blockbuster Emails in the Upcoming Debates

Sometimes we stumble upon data that is stunning and should receive major attention, but it does not. Sometimes, the material is just too stunning, too damning, too outrageous, that even if the report is true, its contents are too controversial to be believed at the time of the release of the information.

I have been a party to such a story regarding Hillary Clinton, Ambassador Stevens and the Benghazi incident. Interestingly enough, highly respected journalist, Aaron Klein, was involved in the same story from a different angle and I feel his good work did not get the attention that it deserved.

The story contained such damning information about Clinton’s DIRECT involvement in the death of Stevens, that it was hard for many of the “unaware” in our country to find the material believable. However, in today’s political climate, millions of Americans have an awareness that they did not have 9-12 months ago about the character of Hillary Clinton.

Florida millionaire releases surveillance video of his ex-fiancee 'beating herself up' after she claimed he attacked her

A millionaire has released video of his former fiancee hitting herself in the face during a temper tantrum to rubbish claims he abused her.

Scott Mitchell, 45, has released the footage of Mary Hunt, 29, supposedly beating herself up as part of a tense legal battle.

The businessman from Tampa Bay, Florida, has accused her of stealing $2.1million worth of jewelry from the safe in his sprawling mansion when they split last summer.

Hunt has claimed Mitchell was violent towards her, giving her black eyes and bruises, before he broke off the wedding in August.

But it was Coulter, 54, who spent much of the evening in the hot seat — at one point being labeled a “two faced b----h” and a “transvestite whore.”

Good Cop Vindicated After Being Raided by Sheriff for Calling Out Corruption in His Town

Police officer Wayne Anderson took a risk when he shared evidence of corruption in the Terrebonne Sheriff’s Office. He was finally vindicated, however, when the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeals ruled a raid on his home was unconstitutional. A unanimous decision handed down from the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeals found that a raid on Anderson’s home was unconstitutional, as the rationale for it contained a fatal flaw. Two computers and five cellphones were confiscated from his home under the premise that he was breaking the law with defamation. He was not, the court found.

American Electorate Loses As Partisan Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Turns Outright Bizarre

The recent media frenzy surrounding Clinton and Trump's health records has accomplished little more than to, once again, expose a "press" that is becoming increasingly partisan with each passing day.

Right-leaning media outlets have spent countless hours reporting on the various health issues experienced by Clinton over the years and pointing to pictures of her falling down on the campaign trail or seemingly zoning out at times as evidence of her frailty. Meanwhile the left-leaning organizations have mostly dismissed the Hillary health concerns as conspiracy theories of right-wing nut jobs.

Like this tweet from a New York Times columnist calling on google to censor commentary on Hillary's health...

Catholic hospital turns away woman bleeding from dislodged IUD because church opposes birth control

hicago-area woman who showed up at her doctor’s office in pain and bleeding from a dislodged IUD was told that nothing could be done because his practice was affiliated with a Catholic hospital network which opposes birth control.

According to Rewire, Melanie Jones, 28, slipped in her bathroom causing her copper IUD to shift and stab her internally. After getting an appointment to see her doctor, she was told that his “hands were tied” and he couldn’t help her due to restrictions placed upon him and other providers in the Mercy Hospital and Medical Center system.

“I think my first feeling was shock,” Jones said in an interview. “I thought that eventually they were going to recognize that my health was the top priority.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in the mind of the Catholic Church, this woman's bleeding to death was a favorable outcome to getting the IUD removed?!?

To ladies and the men who love them; ladies, before getting insurance coverage, please consider if that HMO is under religious auspices, and how their religious teachings control what you may, or may not be able to get fixed, or taken care of (like responsible birth control), and what you are not going to be able to get fixed or taken care of, through that HMO.

It could mean the difference between life and death, and I am not kidding on that.

This poor gal should not have had to wait 5 minutes, let alone 5 days, for a simple fix to a condition which could have killed her.

GOVT EXPOSED FOR FORCING FOSTER KIDS, EVEN TODDLERS TO TAKE DANGEROUS PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS

After years of growing concern, the California state auditor has produced a damning report describing how the state’s 79,000 foster children are being drugged with psychotropic medications at abnormally high rates.

The report found that nearly 12 percent of kids in California’s child welfare system were prescribed psychotropic medications – including antipsychotics, antidepressants and mood stabilizers – during 2014-2015. This compares to a rate of 4 to 10 percent for non-foster kids.

Some of these vulnerable children were drugged “in amounts and dosages that exceeded state guidelines,” with no follow-up by the county to ensure these prescriptions were appropriate. Some counties also violated the law by failing to obtain court or parental approval for psychotropic medications.

California spent $226 million on psychotropic medications for foster kids over the last decade, which amounts to almost 72 percent of total drug spending for foster youth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is criminal to do to helpless kids, who have no idea what they are being given, and can have no way of understanding how the effects of these drugs will play out later in their lives.

THE TURKISH INVASION OF SYRIA AS PATH TO "REGIME CHANGE"

Al-Bab is a "backdoor" on key routes south to Aleppo from the Turkish border.

Turkish supplies for the Islamic Army of Conquest offensives in South Aleppo and Latakia: arms, ammo, supplies, even artillery, tanks have been reported as flowing like water over the Turkish border

Turkey is obviously not coordinating its incursion with the Syrian government which condemns it as a violation of its sovereignty. The Kremlin's impotent calls for Turkey to coordinate with Damascus while waving the old Geneva communique have been completely ignored. Unfortunately there is little they can do at this point without engaging in a full scale war with Turkey and the U.S. in Syria. Something the Kremlin lacks the will to do. Turkey/U.S. intend that their proxies take Aleppo as leverage in settlement negotiations to force Assad to step down, or partition if that fails.

Both the Turkish and FSA flags, (not the Syrian flag), were raised over "liberated" Jarablus

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question here is, with a growing rapprochement between Turkey and Russia, what can, and will, Putin do to stop this Turkish military campaign, and is he really ready to give up Al-Assad and the current Syrian government, for whom Russia has been fighting in Syria?!?

NORTH DAKOTA GOVERNOR DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY — CALLS ON COPS TO SQUASH NATIVE AMERICAN PROTESTS TO SAVE STATE MONEY

The price tag for the cost of police to fight the protesters is small in comparison to the cost of cleaning up an oil spill.

With the steady stream of protesters pouring into the area around the Dakota Access pipeline demonstration near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, state and county officials are asking North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple for financial assistance.

Native News Online reports that Governor Dalrmple issued an emergency declaration for southwest and south central North Dakota.

The GROWING crowd of protesters come and go as they are able, but estimates range from 1500-4000 total protesters at this time.

People from as far away as California have come to show they support what is best for the people and they DO NOT support the Dakota Access pipeline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These protesters are not the problem; the corporations wanting to ramrod this pipeline through, even though so doing will cause treaties to have been broken, and potential massive environmental damage may happen, are the problem

REPORT: TWITTER SUSPENDS DCLEAKS ACCOUNT AFTER HUGE GEORGE SOROS LEAK

Twitter has suspended the account of DCLeaks after the site released documents on the liberal billionaire George Soros, including those showing that he worked to block immigration reform and documenting illegals.

“This account has been suspended,” Twitter says when accessing DCLeaks page with the Soros documents via a posting by WikiLeaks, which is not affiliated with the group:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pathetically predictable; however, some of those leaks can be seen as follows:

BREAKING: Leaked e-mails show George Soros paid $650 K to influence bishops during Pope’s US visit

Leaked Memo Exposes George Soros' Plan To Overthrow Putin & Destabilise Russia

George Soros’ NGOs exposed manipulating EU elections in 2,500 document hack from DC Leaks

No, I didn't get all that twitter, in a twitti-fuss, deleted; but I got enough to ensure that you understand the way this guy operates; what his agendas are, and how he achieves his goals.

He is "all in" for Hillary Clinton, meaning he wants more wars; more income inequality; more offshoring/outsourcing of US jobs, with which to destroy what is left of the American middle class; and more turmoil domestically, to be followed by the draconian imposition of martial law.

And here is how much he has contributed to her campaign:

Soros gives $25 million to Clinton and other Democratic Candidates for 2016 election.

Any candidate Soros supports makes me want to run like hell in the opposite direction.

Europe's ruling soccer body UEFA has already announced disciplinary proceedings against Celtic for its display of an “illicit banner” at a game against Israel's Hapoel Be'er Sheva team a couple of weeks ago.

Hillary and Colin: the War Criminal Charade

The gangsterish “no honor among war criminals” back stabbing shouldn’t make anyone feel badly for Powell. As secretary of state in the George W.

Utopia, Nostalgia and the Jew

Utopia, the imaginary ideal society, the Eden of collective and universal yearning is at the root of Left and progressive thought. A utopian society is the political and social goal of some leftist and progressive narratives. For others the perfect society is itself the ideological means toward redemption. No left or progressive intellectual narrative is impervious to some sort of utopian ideal.

But for about half of the American people, utopia is nostalgic. The return of the ‘American Dream,’ of being great once again – this is the idyllic dream shared by supporters of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You cannot have a perfect society (or government) until humans are perfect. The failure of the progressive/liberal system is their firm belief that humans can be "re-engineered" to perfection, based on Margaret Mead's book, "Coming of Age in Samoa", which has since been exposed as an intellectual fraud.

Just 90 companies are to blame for most climate change, this 'carbon accountant' says

Last month, geographer Richard Heede received a subpoena from Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX), chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Smith, a climate change doubter, became concerned when the attorneys general of several states launched investigations into whether ExxonMobil had committed fraud by sowing doubts about climate change even as its own scientists knew it was taking place. The congressman suspected a conspiracy between the attorneys general and environmental advocates, and he wanted to see all the communications among them. Predictably, his targets included advocacy organizations such as Greenpeace, 350.org, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. They also included Heede, who works on his own aboard a rented houseboat on San Francisco Bay in California.

CBO: Federal Debt to Hit $28.2 Trillion Over Next Decade

At the end of this year, outstanding federal debt is expected to climb to $19.4 trillion and to rise by $8.8 trillion in the next ten years. The federal government’s budget deficit, which is the difference between how much money the government spends and how much money it takes in through tax collection, will be $590 billion by the end of 2016, $152 billion more than the previous year. Government spending is projected to increase by 5 percent, or $178 billion, while government revenue is projected to increase by less than 1 percent, or $26 billion.

How Central Banks Are Bleeding the Middle Class Dry

The Western welfare states know many ways to get rid of their enormous sovereign debt — at great cost of their citizens. Once the debt burden becomes unbearable, the government simply reforms the currency. Then, the government debt will be “adjusted” with the private wealth of the citizens. This is when the citizens will notice that their government’s sovereign debt is their own debt. But the government does not always need to make use of these large torture devices. More subtle ways, such as financial repression, are possible.

FYI : Hillary Will Abolish the Second Amendment!

Donald Trump was widely criticized by media, Democrats, and even some Republicans after he made a joke regarding Second Amendment remedies to Hillary Clinton’s plan to “essentially abolish” the Second Amendment. -- As if “reporters,” commentators, and politicians were all reading from the same script, they consistently pointed out that Clinton had no such intentions – in spite of the fact that this is exactly what she intends to do.

Scott Adams: The Mental Vote

I have a hypothesis that many voters have already voted against Trump – in their minds – months before the first absentee votes are cast. The way that works is that a pollster calls someone who is considering voting for Trump – perhaps the week after the Khan controversy – and that voter decides to punish Trump for being offensive that week. So the wannabe-Trump-supporter “votes” against Trump. But only to the pollster.

Hillary Clinton’s “Humanitarian Interventionists” Prepare for War in Syria

Defense One, the online magazine published by the self-described “neocon guy" David Bradley, has called for a no-fly zone in Syria. Evelyn N. Farkas, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a NATO operation, writes the United States is “morally complicit in the worsening humanitarian catastrophe that is Syria,” but not for the reason you might think. The United States is guilty because it has not intervened more directly. “We should be ready to enforce [a no-fly zone] through military force and communicate this directly to the Russian government. We should seek U.N. Security Council approval, but be prepared to proceed without it.”

THE CASE FOR DONALD TRUMP

Anyone who knows my writing and background knows I am not a conservative and certainly have little use for the right wing anywhere.
But they will also know that I despise war and that I believe America’s establishment has brought moral degradation to the country’s international affairs. It has also brought degradation to America’s own people, completely ignoring their welfare for decades, regarding them only as a herd from which to solicit votes with television advertising and from whom to collect taxes.

Hillary Clinton Enters The Media Wars

When I wrote the above, I had no idea that two days later Hillary Clinton would deliver a speech in Nevada specifically targeting a nebulous movement referred to as the “alt-right,” as well as several of the prominent websites associated with it. Never in a million years did I think Hillary herself would so publicly enter the Media Wars.

The speech itself was pretty bizarre. Although I found her effective on several fronts, I believe it will ultimately backfire by providing free publicity and fame to many of those she intended to demonize.

Just this week, the governments of both Germany and Czechoslovakia warned that people should be prepared for ““be prepared for the worst case possible scenario.” But here in the United States, just the opposite is happening. Our government seems to have an unquenchable thirst for cracking down on those who take responsibility for themselves. There is an abundance of evidence of this in Louisiana. The southern state has been hit with the worst flooding in over 500 years.

The Future of War Looks Like Hollywood: “Terminator-Like Machines to Fight in Battlefields”

The future might be unrecognizable, and the battlefield may soon become a place where humans don’t stand a chance.

The future of war will involve autonomous robots instead of humans, according to Air Force General and Vice Chair of the Joint of Chiefs of Staff Paul Selva, who warned enemies could build “Terminator”-like machines to fight in battlefields.

“I’m talking about a wholly-robotic system that decides whether or not, at the point of decision, it’s going to do lethal ops.”

A radioactive kitty litter 'bomb'

A typo and a bag of organic kitty litter may end up costing United States taxpayers more than $2 billion in nuclear waste cleanup, according to a new report by Ralph Vartabedian at the Los Angeles Times.

Back in February 2014, a drum of nuclear waste burst open inside the cavernous Waste Isolation Pilot Project (WIPP), which is drilled out of a salt deposit nearly half a mile below the deserts of Carlsbad, New Mexico.

The US Department of Energy (DOE), which funds the company that runs the nuclear waste dump, quickly suspended operations and launched an investigation to figure out the cause.

In their 277-page report, investigators determined the blast vaporized nearly 7.5 lbs of the material inside a single barrel, labeled "Drum 68660." That material included some radioactive isotopes of americium, plutonium, and uranium — byproducts of Cold War-era nuclear weapons production.

Scott Adams: Finding the Political Bottom

. . . . Clinton just insulted 40% of American voters by calling them racists. Clinton literally – and publicly – turned on her own citizens.

Trump, by contrast, has attacked only professionals who are in the cage fight against him, including politicians on both sides, and the media. Judge Curiel is a professional (in a legal battle context). The reporter with the bad arm is a professional. Mr. Khan was acting as a professional because he entered the cage, armed. If you’re a professional – and can defend yourself – Trump doesn’t mind coming after you with a flamethrower.

But Clinton’s Alt-Right speech did not target professionals. Clinton attacked American citizens. Lots of them.
