Things Are Happening At An Alarming Pace in Syria: “Putin Gears Up For War” - Mac Slavo

As SHTF reported yesterday, Russia is officially on war footing, with more than 40 MILLION of its population participating in the largest ever nuclear warfare drill.

The powers that be are now flirting with the option of all out war, and potentially unprecedented levels of destruction. The American public has never been presented with any cohesive rational or good reason at all for why we are still embroiled in the Middle East, and one can only assume that there are other hidden agendas at work.

The rivalry to supply Europe with energy, and a proposed pipeline from the Arabian peninsula through Syria and Turkey into Europe may be a much better explanation for why we are being dragged so perilously close to war than anything else we’ve been told. It certainly appears that the West intends to allow radical Islam to take hold of the region amid a vacuum of power, and that the U.S. would prefer to partner with terrorism rather than lose its grip on the existing world order.

The IMF Sounds An Alarm As Global Debt Hits A Record $152 Trillion Or 225% Of World GDP

Another record for the history books.

In addition to reporting on the dangers facing global banks as a result of declining profits in the current low rate environment, today the IMF also released its latest Fiscal Monitor report which sounded a loud alarm when it revealed something disturbing: at 225 percent of world GDP, the global debt of the nonfinancial sector, comprising the general government, households, and nonfinancial firms, is currently at an all-time high of $152 trillion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are insane, and cannot hold.

5 Stories The Mainstream Media Ignored While Reporting On Kim Kardashian's Robbery

One of the saving graces of the ailing corporate media - for the folks setting the agenda, anyhow - is its relentless ability to hyper-focus the public’s attention on altogether meaningless events.

Take, for instance, an armed robbery that sees property stolen but no one harmed. Such an event is unfortunate, yes, but such is life. People get robbed. It certainly isn’t something that should consume the news cycle — particularly when developments of actual importance are unfolding around the world.

Yet that’s exactly what happened this week after reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris on Monday morning. Kardashian, who was in town for Fashion Week, was forced into the bathroom of her hotel room, tied up, and robbed at gunpoint. The perpetrators, men dressed as police officers, stole about $10 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Celebrity worship in this country has exploded, and corporate presstitutes love stories like this one, because it distracts viewers and listeners from the real issues facing both this country, and the world.

Please: what is going on in this country, and this world, needs attention payed to it NOW, by every American, before we are looking at events blowing up into a major world war; and unfortunately, such an event looks as though it might well be very close to actually happening.

MOSCOW ON THE OFFENSIVE Russian state newspapers predict ‘direct military conflict’ with US as it compares Syria stalemate to Cuban missile crisis

Veteran broadcaster Vladimir Pozner told the BBC: "There's a real feeling now that America is out to prove it is the only superpower.
"The continued expansion of Nato is seen by the Russian leadership, perhaps incorrectly, is seen as being a real threat.

"There is a danger of real confrontation, perhaps leading to some kind of military engagement and war."

It has previously been reported that Putin is preparing for war with the West.

Russia is already staging a massive evacuation drill to prepare for nuclear war.

More than 200,000 emergency services personnel and soldiers will use 50,000 pieces of equipment during the civil defence exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping that cooler heads prevail here, but I think the Russian press is calling it as it sees it.

And I have something I would like to say to Russia's President Putin and their Foreign Minister Lavrov: thinking American people do not want a war with Russia, or anyone else right now, thank you very much.

Our economy is barely holding together by a thread; the infrastructure at home is completely broken; and the expansion of homeless camps in this country (the "Obamavilles", if you will) continues to grow apace, courtesy of
offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs.

And right now, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to enable it to ensure a positive outcome to a military conflict against Russia.

There is an absolutely incestuous relationship between the corporations making our weapons system, and the Congressional representatives who green light these contracts.

These are the same Congressional representatives who very gleefully take campaign contributions from these same contractors.

The results, when weapons get field deployed are: late deliveries, to the point where those weapons are obsolete upon their deliveries; weapons not at all working as advertised; and development programs creating huge cost over-runs.

Thinking Americans want to engage with Russia for trade; your wonderful non-GMO food; research; and working in a cooperative way to resolve the world's problems peacefully.

We do not want this war; we want peace, prosperity, and economic stability for all countries, including our own.

We understand that this Administration may try to jam this war down our throats, but there will be peaceful protests, hopefully seen by the world, indicating our severe displeasure and opposition to such actions by our government.

In fact, in the United States of America, the government is no longer of the people'; by the people; and for the people; it is of the corporations; by the corporations, and for those corporations, and banks, which enrich their own coffers from the deaths of others.

Obama: Thank God I'm a country boy

President Obama invoked his Kansas roots Tuesday in a statement praising America's rural areas and suggesting that coal and farm towns are fast shifting to the digital economy under his leadership.

"I've spent most of my life living in big cities. But the truth is, a lot of what's shaped me came from my grandparents who grew up on the prairie in Kansas," he said in a statement issued by the Agriculture Department.

"They taught me the kind of values that don't always make headlines, let alone the daily back-and-forth in Washington. Honesty and responsibility. Hard work and toughness against adversity. Keeping your word, and giving back to your community. And treating folks with respect, even if you disagree with them," he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These statements prove, incontrovertibly, that President Obama lives in a parallel universe!

Looking at the whoppers he's told, the crucifixion of whistle blowers; the international and national messes he's made; the thorough corruption of his administration; the suppression of information requested in FOIA requests, apparently, whatever his grandparents taught him, did not stick.

Immunity deals stopped FBI from investigating BleachBit use in Clinton email case

Immunity agreements offered to two of Hillary Clinton's top aides prevented the FBI from looking into the circumstances surrounding the use of BleachBit, a digital deletion tool, to destroy the former secretary of state's emails.

In a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch Wednesday, four Republican committee chairmen demanded to know why Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, two witnesses who also served as Clinton's personal attorneys, were granted such expansive protections despite the FBI's awareness that they had participated in potentially illegal activities.

For example, the FBI agreed to limit its search to emails written after June 1, 2014, but before Feb. 1, 2015. By doing so, investigators were barred from looking at emails authored around the time Mills and David Kendall, Clinton's lead attorney, held a pair of conference calls with technology contractor Paul Combetta that immediately preceded his use of BleachBit to erase thousands of Clinton's emails.

Alabama Teen Severely Beaten By Black Classmates For Wearing 'Blue Lives Matter' Shirt

A white Alabama teenager is in fair condition after his skull was fractured in a fight following a high school event. The fight is believed to be related to the teen’s support for police in the face of ongoing outrage over cops killing black people.

Brian Ogle, 17, was beaten by several people in a parking lot on Friday night in Sylacauga, Alabama, according to reports. A large group of students had gathered in a downtown Sylacauga parking lot where Ogle was confronted by multiple black teens, according to Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson.

The WatchOpinion‘Do Not Resist’: A chilling look at the normalization of warrior cops

The haunting thing about the new policing documentary “Do Not Resist” is what it doesn’t show. There are no images of cops beating people. No viral videos of horrifying shootings. Sure, there are scenes from the Ferguson protests in which riot cops deploy tear gas. But there’s no blood, no Tasings, no death. Yet when it was over, I had to force myself to exhale.

U.S. assistant secretary Nuland to arrive in Moscow late on Oct. 4 — source

U.S. Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland will arrive in Moscow on Oct. 4 evening, a diplomatic source has told TASS.

"Today Victoria Nuland is in Brussels as part of the delegation of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. She will arrive in Moscow by plane in the evening," the source said.

he U.S. State Department announced on Oct. 3 that Nuland will travel to Moscow "to meet with senior Russian government officials to discuss the situation in eastern Ukraine and next steps to implement the Minsk agreements in support of the Normandy countries and the Trilateral Contact Group."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me for getting nervous about this, but upon hearing that Nuland is in Moscow today is making the hairs on the back of my neck start to break dance, AND BACKWARDS!!

Her middle name should be "Destabilization", because that was what she crowed about when the Ukrainian government got deposed in 2014, and Poroshenko got "anointed" as president.

U.S. TROOPS BEING DEPLOYED TO IRAQ MAY FACE VIOLENT RESISTANCE FROM IRAQI STATE MILITIAS

Late last week, we learned President Obama was sending additional “boots on ground” to Iraq in order to push ISIS out of Mosul.

Reuters reported:

The United States will send around 600 new troops to Iraq to assist local forces in the battle to retake Mosul from Islamic State that is expected later this year, U.S. and Iraqi officials said on Wednesday.

What Reuters didn’t report, is that various Iraqi state militias, known as Popular Mobilization Units (PMUs), are preparing for violent resistance against these U.S. troops, which they see as an occupying force.

Al Monitor reports:

BAGHDAD — Factions of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) are threatening to attack US troops that participate in the battle to liberate Mosul from the Islamic State (IS), but the Iraqi government hopes to smooth things over.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to both President Obama and Sec Def Carter: these troops are NOT going to be "welcomed as liberators", and you have both put them into a horrific amount of harm's way with this deployment!!!!

IT'S TIME WE CRUSH THE PUTRID ROACH MOTELS OF PHILANTHRO-CRONY-CAPITALISM, STARTING WITH THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

Former President Paytoplay starts a non-profit charitable foundation, which starts business right as Former President Paytoplay's wife is appointed Secretary of State for Lower Slobovia.

Since we know Lower Slobovia is corrupt, we know how this goes. Dictators, corporations, cartels, etc. who need favors from Lower Slobovia make huge "donations" to the Paytoplay Foundation, and like magic, their favors are granted by the government of Lower Slobovia.

Sadly, there is no corrupt Lower Slobovia or corrupt Paytoplay Foundation. There is however a corrupt USA and corrupt Clinton Foundation, which you can read about here: Putting the Clinton Foundation in Context: Corruption Plain on the Face of It (Amy Sterling Casil)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Electing Hillary Clinton in this election is voting for more wars; more economic inequality; and more corruption in government: it is just that simple.

And yes, I do want a woman in the White House as President: but please, Lord, not THAT woman.

IRAQ WARNS OF "REGIONAL WAR" IF TURKEY DOES NOT WITHDRAW TROOPS

With much of the public's attention in recent weeks focused on the escalation between the US and Russia over the nearly 6-year-old proxy war in Syria, a reminder that middle-east tensions include virtually all other neighboring countries, came from Iraq's prime minister who on Wednesday warned Turkey that it risked triggering a regional war by keeping troops in his territory, as the neighboring states summoned each other's ambassadors in a mounting diplomatic stand-off.

Turkey announced late on Tuesday that it was summoning Iraq's ambassador to complain about the parliamentary vote. "We believe this decision does not reflect the views of the majority of Iraqi people, whom Turkey has stood by for years and attempted to support with all its resources," Turkey's Foreign Ministry said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get very ugly very quickly, and it appears that there is nothing the US can do to stop it right now.

Arrested Kansas City librarian gets support from national library group

Kemper is a biggie.Those cops and the DA are in big trouble!

The Kansas City Public Library, which has protested the arrests earlier this year of a librarian and a patron during a public event, gained a show of support this week from the country’s largest library association.

The American Library Association issued a statement praising the Kansas City library for supporting free speech and promising help as the library opposes the prosecution of its director of public programming, Steven Woolfolk, and library patron Jeremy Rothe-Kushel of Lawrence.

On Friday, R. Crosby Kemper III, the executive director of the city’s library system, said the arrests and charges violated the First Amendment.

US seeks to enforce global dominance by unleashing war on countries who oppose it – Assad

Washington’s pursuit of hegemony has fallen short of its goal, causing havoc and collapse of states, Bashar Assad said in a new interview. Syria’s head believes that US meddling in the conflict aims to “save what is left” from its fading global preeminence.
In an interview to Iranian magazine Tehran Foreign Policy Studies Quarterly on Wednesday, the Syrian president argued that the US resort to force every time it fears a challenge to its clout and ability to control the international agenda unilaterally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"It's what we do!" -- Official White Horse Souse

All jokes aside, Assad is right. The US plan to conquer the world is failing and the agenda seems to be shifting away from more conquest to just keeping what they already invaded, and that too is in trouble.

At least 20 Iraqi pro-government fighters have been killed when the US-led coalition targeted their position near the militant-held northern city of Mosul, media reports say.

A local source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the US-led military aircraft struck a building in the Kharaeb village of the al-Qayyarah region, located approximately 300 kilometers north of the capital, Baghdad, on Wednesday morning, leaving 20 Iraqi tribal fighters dead and five others injured, Arabic-language Shafaq news agency reported.

'He’s a beggar, but he’s worth about $900 million more than me': Did Donald Trump ALREADY confirm his massive tax write-off in his own book?

One of the biggest bombshells of the campaign – that Donald Trump claimed a $916 million loss on his taxes that could have benefited him for decades – may have already been flagged by the candidate himself on at least two occasions.

Trump recounted a story in his 1997, 'The Art of the Deal, where he writes of renegotiating bank loans and other extraordinary efforts to ride out the recession.

Trump told a story of walking by a panhandler on the street near the gilded Trump Tower – something Trump writes prompted a comment from the struggling mogul.

“He’s a beggar, but he’s worth about $900 million more than me,” Trump writes that he said, the Washington Post reported.

Trump told a similar version of the story to the Washington Post in 1992.

“Podiumgate”: How the Clintons Rigged the First Presidential Debate

Before a big Heavyweight title fight the seconds for each fighter watch the opposing fighters hands taped and gloved to prevent somebody putting a railroad spike in the glove. Trump need to have his seconds go over to Hillary's podium and examine it and pull out her little prompter and they need to check her ears.

The Clintons will break all rules and laws to seize White House power. This is amply proven by the manner in which they rigged and stole the first presidential debate.

The operation appears to have been planned in advance of the September 26, 2016 event, involving the Clintons and their operatives, the debate organizers, the broadcast media (NBC and “moderator” Lester Holt), the managers of the venue, and the security detail at the facility.

The rig was carried out with near-military precision.

It began with the building of a special podium for Hillary Clinton: one that was smaller than the podium designated for Donald Trump.

Not only was Hillary Clinton willing to take lives in order to cover-up the secret activities of the State Department – by broaching the subject of treating Julian Assange as a ‘soft target’ and Wikileaks as a hostile entity– but it is clear that she would be all too willing to do so again as president.

Drones will be used with impunity… perhaps even on U.S. soil. Any questions?

Obama administration considering strikes on Assad, again

U.S. military strikes against the Assad regime will be back on the table Wednesday at the White House, when top national security officials in the Obama administration are set to discuss options for the way forward in Syria. But there’s little prospect President Obama will ultimately approve them.

Inside the national security agencies, meetings have been going on for weeks to consider new options to recommend to the president to address the ongoing crisis in Aleppo, where Syrian and Russian aircraft continue to perpetrate the deadliest bombing campaign the city has seen since the five-year-old civil war began. A meeting of the Principals Committee, which includes Cabinet-level officials, is scheduled for Wednesday. A meeting of the National Security Council, which could include the president, could come as early as this weekend.

IF Obama signs off on strikes against Syria, that will be a declaration of war against Russia.

India’s bellicose stance is being encouraged by Washington, which has forged an ever-closer military-security alliance with New Delhi as part of its drive to strategically encircle and prepare for war against China.

The strikes that India carried out on the evening of September 28-29 were illegal, highly provocative, and justified on a patently trumped-up claim that they were aimed at “terrorist launch pads” from which squads of Islamist gunmen were about to be sent into India.

Yet Washington has signaled its support for the Indian attacks. Obama administration spokesmen have studiously avoided criticizing the strikes and have invariably linked their calls for New Delhi and Islamabad to dampen down tensions to demands Pakistan take urgent action to prevent its territory being used as a “safe haven” by terrorists.

Death Toll Mounts In US Police Killings

At least 19 people lost their lives in encounters with police in the United States last week. The victims, all men, ranged in age from 18 to 53. Seventeen were shot to death, one tased, and one both tased and beaten and strangled. In only two of the cases were the victims shot while engaged in violent attacks on others. All the others were shot while fleeing or allegedly resisting police, or while experiencing mental health or emotional crises.

The race of the police killers was usually not reported, but the killings took place in many cities with racially diverse police forces, including Newark, New Jersey; Houston, Texas; and Los Angeles and San Diego, California.

Israeli Navy Prepares to Attack Women’s Boats Heading to Break Gaza’s Siege

The Israeli navy has been preparing to attack the Women’s Boats heading to break the ten-year-old siege on the Gaza Strip, Quds Press reported yesterday. The boats, which are part of the Freedom Flotilla Alliance, are expected to arrive in Gaza within three days if they are not impeded in any way.

According to a report on Israel’s Channel 2 TV, naval gunships have been waiting in the port of Ashdod ready to move and intercept the Zaytouna and Amal, the two boats making the bid. The TV report claimed that the activists on board the boats have been trained in order to know what to do if they are confronted by the Israeli navy.

Meanwhile, Channel 7 TV said that a group of right-wing Jewish settlers are planning their own flotilla off the coast of Gaza to intercept the Zaytouna and Amal, and oblige them to go to Syria. Refugees there, they argue, are in more need of their support than the Palestinians in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some of these women will wind up badly beaten at the hands of the Israeli Navy; others will die, probably very horribly.

While I honor their courage, knowing what they will be up against, I somehow think that their energy could have been better used toward sanctioning trade and investment in Israel; that is something the Israeli government cannot overcome, when successfully used against the country.

Pentagon Announces “Third Phase” of Military Build-Up Against China. U.S. Economic Hegemony under TPP Supported by Military Might

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced last Thursday a further dramatic expansion of the Pentagon’s “rebalance” or “pivot” to the Asia Pacific that will only heighten the already tense military confrontation with China in the region. He insisted that the Asia Pacific was “the single most consequential region for America’s future.”

Speaking on board the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in San Diego, Carter outlined what he called the “third phase” of the US military build-up and the strengthening of a “principled and inclusive security network” in Asia. While claiming that Beijing was not excluded from the “network,” every aspect of the “third phase” is aimed at preparing for a war with China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Sec Def Carter; isn't TPP officially "dead" in Congress, and unlike Frankenstein, unlikely to be revived?!?

Sec Def Carter, I would like to politely remind you that Obama cannot approve this through executive order; it has to be approved by Congress, and Congress is not moving in this direction at all.

And also, sir, just in case you missed the memo, the TPP, in its current configuration, allows countries where major corporations use slave labor as a matter of course to compete with the US: please tell me that you do not believe for one moment, that this is really "fair trade"?!?

As reported at infowars.com last year:

OBAMA TO EXPAND MODERN-DAY SLAVE TRADE WITH TPP

In the body of this article, is reported the following:

"And it’s unlikely Thailand’s billion-dollar slave industry would prevent it from joining the TPP considering that Obama previously removed an anti-slavery provision from the TPP and also allowed Vietnam to join the partnership despite its flourishing slave trade.

“For… 16 hours, No. 31 and his wife stood in the factory that owned them with their aching hands in ice water,” the AP revealed. “They ripped the guts, heads, tails and shells off shrimp bound for overseas markets, including grocery stores and all-you-can-eat buffets across the United States.”
“After being sold to the Gig Peeling Factory, they were at the mercy of their Thai bosses, trapped with nearly 100 other Burmese migrants.”
It was only in Oct. that the Obama administration invited Thailiand to join the TPP “with open arms.”

“The United States ‘would welcome with open arms’ Thailand’s ruling junta wanting the country to participate in the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact without waiting for the return of a full democratic government to the country, the newly appointed U.S. ambassador to Thailand said,” the Bangkok Post reported."

So what now, Sec Def Carter?!? Is the alleged "land of the free and the home of the brave" going to re-embrace slave labor here at home, in order to compete?!?

Sir, I would seriously doubt that Americans would put up with such nonsense for a millisecond.

Hypocrite Hillary Bashes Wells Fargo at Rally… But Took $258,000 from Wells Fargo Executives (Video)

Hillary Clinton: Look at Wells Fargo. Really shocking isn’t it. One of the nation’s biggest banks bullying thousands of employees to committing fraud against unsuspecting customers… And then in a category by himself there’s Donald Trump.”

But as Lifezette reported, Hillary has taken $258,000 from Wells Fargo executives in the current cycle.

This dishonest woman is in a league of her own.
She has no shame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering that the Clinton Foundation took money from countries which chemically castrate, jail, and execute their LGBT communities Hillary Clinton Took Millions from Anti-LGBT Countries That Jail and Execute Gays and still permit the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation, Prevalence of female genital mutilation by country

The bottom line is that this woman will take money from anyone, or any country; she has absolutely zero moral center, period, end of discussion.

Plan for UK military to opt out of European convention on human rights

Controversial plans for the military to opt out from the European convention on human rights (ECHR) during future conflicts will be introduced by ministers, to see off what the prime minister described as an “industry of vexatious claims” against soldiers.

The long-mooted idea will be announced on Tuesday at the Conservative party conference by Theresa May and the defence secretary, Michael Fallon, although it was immediately criticised by human rights groups who said it was based on a false narrative of spurious lawsuits.

May said the change would “put an end to the industry of vexatious claims that has pursued those who served in previous conflicts”. It would be implemented by introducing a “presumption to derogate” from the ECHR in warfare.

Fallon, in comments released ahead of his conference speech, said: “Our legal system has been abused to level false charges against our troops on an industrial scale.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great: with this withdrawal European convention of human rights, now the UK military will be able to maim, torture, and kill with impunity!!

And if these claims against the UK military were completely illegitimate, how in the world could have possibly cost British taxpayers millions?!?

This move doesn't augur well for peace and social justice, and telegraphs that the management of the British military believes that they are on their way to some major military confrontations around the world.

Does anyone else feel frustrated by how bullshit everything is?

I'm sure I'm far from the only one, but sometimes it feels like it. There are just so many things wrong with everything. Our economy is screwed, this housing bubble is insane, student debt is predatory and insane and financially crippling an entire generation, these never-ending aggressive wars to expand the empire on our tax dollars, these lies the media tell and are allowed to tell, the rigging of regulatory bodies by the corporations who are supposed to be being regulated and the abuse of that to reinforce monopolies, the buying out of congress, the judicial system, and the legal system. Everything is being rewritten by billionaires, for billionaires. Everyone sees it. I don't know how people can talk about anything else. Talking about Brad Pitt's breakup or whatever just seems so impossibly trite in comparison to the societal decay that surrounds us.

Taliban Seizes Major North Afghan City of Kunduz

For the second time in a year, the Taliban has captured the major northern Afghan city of Kunduz, pushing into the city overnight and capturing the center of the city, the provincial capital of the Kunduz Province, and sending Afghan forces scrambling to react.

Fighting has continued throughout the day, and while some officials are claiming they’ve retaken the central square itself, the fighting is ongoing, and the Taliban has shown time and again that once they get into these cities, it isn’t so easy to expel them.

The Pentagon says US troops are ready to assist in the fight over the city, saying that a number of US “enablers” are already in the area to provide whatever support the government seeks. The last Taliban raid, in late 2015, saw them holding Kunduz for months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would someone, please remind me, 15 years on, how the US and NATO are "winning " in Afghanistan?!?

But of course, the US will never leave this country, no matter how much blood and money are sacrificed here.

It's all about the heroin trade, and the reality that over 90 % of all raw, unprocessed heroin comes from Afghanistan.

That is something the US alphabet soup agencies will never let go of, to fund ops that cannot be supported by Congress.

The following is a very interesting article about the heroin trade in Afghanistan, originally published in 2005:

He also lashed out at the EU advising it to "better choose purgatory. Hell is full already. Why should I be afraid of you?"

THIS IS WHAT THEY WERE AFRAID OF — IRAQIS USE “SUE THE SAUDIS” 9/11 BILL TO SUE US FOR 2003 INVASION

The warmongers in the US government have just had their fears realized as Iraq plans to use the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), aka Sue the Saudis Bill, to demand compensation for the US invasion of Iraq.

Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives, following the lead of the Senate, passed a bill allowing Americans to sue Saudi Arabia over 9/11. When the bill made it to the President’s desk, however, Obama quickly showed his loyalty to Saudi Arabia and vetoed it. However, that was only the beginning of the rollercoaster.

Days after his despicable veto, the Senate stepped up and overwhelmingly voted to override it.

Alabama Teen Beaten Into Critical Condition After Posting ‘Blue Lives Matter’

Ogle’s mother, Brandi Allen, told police she believes the assault occurred after he posted a pro-police message to Facebook.

“Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we’re here,” Allen told WBRC from the UAB Hospital on Sunday. “Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I’m still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being.”

Allen added that her son received “threatening messages” after making the post.

“My son took it to the principal at Sylacauga High School and I commend him for that. He showed her the threats that were being made to him, but she told him there was nothing she could do. I’m appalled.”

The Pardon of Marc Rich: How Hillary Clinton Served as the “Secret Weapon” for One of the Biggest Tax Cheats in American History

President-in-waiting Hillary Clinton has never addressed her role in the midnight pardon of billionaire fugitive Marc Rich. In fact, she’s rarely been asked her opinion on the free pass given to one of the world’s most wanted fugitives, a man who violated embargoes against Iran and South Africa and fled the country rather than face trial in what was billed as “the biggest tax evasion case in history.” Hillary has variously said that she was “unaware” of the decision and “surprised” by it. When pressed, she merely cackles.

October Surprise Coming-Gerald Celente

Trends researcher Gerald Celente sees an “October surprise” coming for the economy, terror or war. Celente contends, “Even that sellout, Mario Draghi (Head of the European Central Bank-ECB) the former head of the Goldman Sachs European division, now playing the ECB President, came out and said the central banks can’t do anymore, and they are looking now for government stimulus. That’s going to be the new game. What I am saying is it’s collapsing. Look what happened in Japan a week and a half ago. Everybody was waiting for the bank of Japan to play another card, and they had none to play. So, look for October for things to go bad. Traditionally, when things go bad in markets, it’s October, and they are going bad now. By the way, we are now going into the sixth consecutive quarter in the United States with the S&P 500 negative. Negative earnings in the S&P 500.

Ch. 1: The Dangers from Nuclear Weapons: Myths and Facts

An all-out nuclear war between Russia and the United States would be the worst catastrophe in history, a tragedy so huge it is difficult to comprehend. Even so, it would be far from the end of human life on earth. The dangers from nuclear weapons have been distorted and exaggerated, for varied reasons. These exaggerations have become demoralizing myths, believed by millions of Americans.

 Myth: Fallout radiation from a nuclear war would poison the air and all parts of the environment. It would kill everyone. (This is the demoralizing message of On the Beach and many similar pseudoscientific books and articles.)

IG Report: Obama Operatives Impeded FOIA Requests, Punished Judicial Watch

A General Services Administration inspector general released a scathing letter Thursday accusing White House operatives of slow-walking open records requests and wrongly punishing conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. Meanwhile, the watchdog group revealed on Thursday that the FBI had no plans to question Clinton's aides in its "half-baked" email investigation until it was clear that Judicial Watch was going to, and then the FBI used JW's own redacted FOIA documents to question them.

Via the Washington Times:

The GSA botched several high-profile open records requests, delaying them for months while political appointees got involved, Inspector General Carol F. Ochoa said. The findings were released while the administration was facing charges of slow-walking open records requests for Hillary Clinton’s emails, as well as other requests.

Industry Insider Warns: America Is A Tinderbox And Multiple Matches Could Set It On Fire: “We’ve Obviously Got A Major Financial Crisis Brewing” by Mac Slavo

Over the last month we’ve seen financial markets around the world rattled. Just this past week a bank that is considered to be one of the pillars of the global financial system was revealed to be in dire straights and so deep in debt that it is likely insolvent. Billionaires that include legendary investor Warren Buffet have existed broader stocks and are now sitting on the sidelines waiting for the next leg down. And even U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump, in a debate with rival Hillary Clinton, warned that a single misstep by America’s central bank could lead to a devastating crash.

In the following interview K92 Mining President Bryan Slusarchuk echoes these sentiments and explains that a confluence of economic, financial, monetary and geo-political events have left us in a position that is significantly more dangerous than at any time in recent history.

Wells Fargo 2.0: Massachussetts Charges Morgan Stanley With Dishonest Conduct To Cross-Sell Product

Step aside Wells Fargo fake account scandal: moments ago Reuters and Bloomberg reported that Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin charges Morgan Stanley with “dishonest and unethical conduct” related to “high pressure sales contests” in Massachusetts, Rhode Island.

Here are the headlines:

Massachusetts charges Morgan Stanley with running unethical sales contests to cross sell products
Massachusetts accuses Morgan Stanley of dishonest, unethical conduct related to high-pressure sales contests
Massachusetts says conduct occurred in Massachusetts, Rhode Island * Massachusetts accuses brokers of pushing so-called "securities based loans" as a means to boost business
Massachusetts files administrative complaint seeking a fine, censure, and relief for customers who got the loans

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Conduct a criminal inquiry, have the people who signed off on these practices get convicted by a jury of their peers, and have them imprisoned for a long time, and NOT, thank you very much, at a Club Fed prison; that may dampen the ardor of banksters to engage in practices like this in the future.

Greek Police Fire Tear Gas, Use Pepper Spray On Protesting Pensioners

Familiar scenes returned to Athens today, when Greek police fired teargas at a demonstration of pensioners protesting over cutbacks to their benefits, part of an austerity drive dictated by the Troika (or was it Quadriga).

Cracks Emerge: Hillary Cancels Joint Campaign Events With Bernie After Leaked Recording

After Friday's latest leak, in which a recording of Hillary Clinton during a February fundraiser revealed disparaging commentary aimed at Millennials in general and Bernie Sanders supporters in particular in which Hillary said that Sanders supporters are harboring "false promises" and "are living in their parents’ basement" because "they don’t see much of a future" (supposedly after eight years under the Obama administration), Hillary tried to patch up the PR snafu, aware that she urgently needs the youth vote on her side.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Millenials have little faith in either candidate; but I hope that they understand that a vote for Hillary Clinton this year is a vote for more wars; more economic displacement, courtesy of offshoring/outsourcing; and a return to the draft, this time for women also.

FBI Allowed 2 Hillary Aides To "Destroy" Their Laptops In Newly Exposed "Side Agreements"

Just when you think the Hillary email scandal can't get any more bizarre and corrupt, it does. According to a just released letter from the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte (R - Virginia), to Attorney General Lynch, the FBI apparently struck "side agreements" with both Cheryl Mills an Heather Samuelson to "destroy" their "laptops after concluding its search."

While we parse the letter to understand what basis for action the FBI may have had when pursuing such a course of action, we can't help but note that the FBI appears to have acted as a co-conspirator in what appears to be an unprecedented case of destruction of key evidence.

Below are some of the key excerpts from the letter (full document attached at the end of this post):

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why did the FBI allow this to happen?!?

Because the institution has become rotten to the core, from it's head, John Comey, on down, and additionally, the elite rarely eat their own.

Education Secretary John King: Homeschooled Students Not ‘Getting the Range of Options’ They Should

U.S. Secretary of Education John King says he is worried that homeschooled children aren’t “getting the range of options that are good for all kids,” a remark that is drawing strong reactions from homeschooling parents across the nation.
The Heritage Foundation’s Lindsey Burke provided Politico Pro’s (subscription only) report on King’s recent remarks to reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Burke writes at the Daily Signal:

King—although he conceded that there are homeschooling families who are doing well—told the audience he worries that homeschooled students aren’t “getting the range of options that are good for all kids.” According to Politico:

King said he worries that ‘students who are homeschooled are not getting kind of the rapid instructional experience they would get in school’—unless parents are “very intentional about it”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core has wrecked the educational system in this country, to the point where kids have a really hard time thinking critically, and in a solution oriented way; it has dumbed down the American student to the point where basic grammar, syntax, and basic math are no longer valued, or taught, in any meaningful way.

King should be very proud of himself for that.

Meanwhile, the US is completely behind the 8 ball in terms of educational achievement against many of the countries in the world, like Finland and South Korea; how in heaven's name are Americans going to compete internationally if they do not have the math and language skills to enable them to do that?!?

Rising Tension between India and Pakistan. Military Escalation? Diplomacy at a Standstill

It was a day of quiet on the India-Pakistan front except for the sporadic gunfire exchanged between the two sides in the Akhnoor sector of the international border in Jammu and Kashmir.

On the other hand, it is a worrying sign to see no diplomatic efforts being taken up by both the sides to diffuse the tension. The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit to have been held in the Pakistan in November was cancelled after India boycotted the summit. The announcement came after Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangaladesh too boycotted the summit on Friday. Sri Lanka too had expressed its reservations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world, from Syria, to Pakistan and India, appear to be on the brink of global military confrontations, and where's the President of the United States, instead of doing the job he was hired to do in 2012?!?

Shilling for Hillary.

With the world damn near on fire, what a complete, utterly useless embarrassment he is for US citizens right now!!
