Can Clinton Ignore the Base and Defeat Trump?

Whereas Donald Trump was floundering badly in the polls in June, he appears to be doing quite a bit better as we approach August.

While it may have seemed for a time that Hillary Clinton could defeat Donald Trump with one hand tied behind her back, it’s looking now like she will need both hands wrapped around his neck to get the job done. Actually, more precisely, she may need the base.

This is a novel concept for corporate Democrats, because to them the base is tantamount to a tool kept in the shed and only used when needed. But the base has access to better, more timely information now, and they appear to be acting on it. So firing up the base may require something more tangible this time around.

Hillary Clinton’s 1 pct dilemma gets more awkward

Hillary Clinton’s 1 percent dilemma just got more awkward. Progressive Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts kicked off the Democratic convention on Monday in Philadelphia blasting the rich. With inequality atop the party platform, they told a cheering crowd that they expect the former secretary of state to rein in millionaires. Yet, they are her biggest donors.

Bernie delegate’s DNC credentials stripped after holding ‘STOP TPP’ sign

Arkansas delegate Frank Klein says he was stripped of his credentials after he held up an “unauthorized sign” during President Obama’s speech to the DNC Wednesday night.

Klein, a Fourth Congressional District delegate for Bernie Sanders, claims he held up a “Stop TPP” sign, which was allegedly against the rules.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even though Hillary stated on stage she is opposed to TPP!!!

Trump and Those Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Russians

So now, instead of the public examining how powerful American interest prevail on their democratic choice, the narrative becomes one of accusing Vladimir Putin of subverting the US presidential elections.

The slander against Russia is only afforded a semblance of credibility because it is piled on a heap of previous slander, in which Moscow is accused of annexing and invading Ukrainian territory, posing a threat to Eastern Europe, assassinating political opponents, shooting down civilian airliners and sponsoring illicit drugs in Olympic sports.

One again, rumor, insinuation and vilification triumph over facts in the Western media’s so-called news services.

Government Agency Spent Millions on Public Relations Campaign to Improve Image

Top officials at the Government National Mortgage Association spent $3.9 million on a public relations campaign designed to create positive images for themselves, including a magazine piece on how one of them avoided obesity.

Spending tax dollars to polish an individual employee’s image isn’t allowed under Federal Acquisition Regulations, the Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general said in a report released Tuesday. The association—which is popularly known as “Ginnie Mae”—is part of HUD.

1974 Diary Surfaces: Hillary Fired For “Lying, Unethical Behavior” on Watergate Committee...

Zeifman says he was urged by top committee members to keep a diary of everything that was happening. He did so, and still has the diary if anyone wants to check the veracity of his story. Certainly, he could not have known in 1974 that diary entries about a young lawyer named Hillary Rodham would be of interest to anyone 34 years later.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary's people claim she was not fired, but simply reached the end of her assignment.

Once again, they are caught lying.

DEMOCRATS ABANDON WORKERS TO TRUMP

***
Trump has found the potential key to victory because he realizes that the Democratic Party has given up on these workers, who were once considered to be their main constituency. These workers have become even more alienated from their jobs, as Marx predicted, because their jobs no longer exist. And according to Trump, it’s because the Democrats—especially the Clintons—embraced bad trade agreements like NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement.

ANOTHER '90s scandal returns to haunt the Clintons - billionaire accused of being front for Chinese Communist bid to influence Bill's 1996 election finally faces being questioned after years on the run

A Chinese billionaire at the center of a 20-year-old Clinton foreign donor scandal is being called in to answer questions from Congress about his role in the influence-buying scheme, in a move that could revive yet another Clinton controversy from the 1990s.
The House Oversight Committee told Daily Mail Online that it will seek an interview with Ng Lap Seng, 68, who evaded congressional investigators for years.
He has now re-appeared in the United States and is being held in New York on unrelated bribery charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the "China-gate" scandal, in which Bill Clinton allowed sensitive technology with military applications to be sold to China, while Chinese money was funneled into his re-election campaign.

This is why it is legitimate to ask if Hillary was selling US secrets, using her private email server with weak security to deliver the secrets, and her so-called charitable foundation to collect and launder the payments.

ANOTHER '90s scandal returns to haunt the Clintons - billionaire accused of being front for Chinese Communist bid to influence Bill's 1996 election finally faces being questioned after years on the run

A Chinese billionaire at the center of a 20-year-old Clinton foreign donor scandal is being called in to answer questions from Congress about his role in the influence-buying scheme, in a move that could revive yet another Clinton controversy from the 1990s.

The House Oversight Committee told Daily Mail Online that it will seek an interview with Ng Lap Seng, 68, who evaded congressional investigators for years.

He has now re-appeared in the United States and is being held in New York on unrelated bribery charges.

One campaign group is even suggesting that Congress grant him immunity from the charges in return for testifying.

Ng, a Macau businessman with ties to the Chinese government, was accused of funneling over $1 million in illegal foreign donations to support Bill Clinton's reelection campaign in 1996.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for this guy to become "very depressed" in jail to the point of "getting Arkancided" in some spectacular, breath-taking manner, before he is supposed to testify, as he was very much one of the "linchpins" in the Chinagate scandal.

As reported at en.wikipedia.org:

The 1996 United States campaign finance controversy was an alleged effort by the People's Republic of China to influence domestic American politics prior to and during the Clinton administration and also involved the fund-raising practices of the administration itself. While questions regarding the U.S. Democratic Party's fund-raising activities first arose over a Los Angeles Times article published on September 21, 1996,[1] China's alleged role in the affair first gained public attention when Bob Woodward and Brian Duffy of The Washington Post published a story stating that a United States Department of Justice investigation into the fund-raising activities had uncovered evidence that agents of China sought to direct contributions from foreign sources to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) before the 1996 presidential campaign. The journalists wrote that intelligence information had shown the Chinese embassy in Washington, D.C. was used for coordinating contributions to the DNC[2] in violation of United States law forbidding non-American citizens or non-permanent residents from giving monetary donations to United States politicians and political parties. A Republican investigator of the controversy stated the Chinese plan targeted both presidential and congressional United States elections, while Democratic Senators said the evidence showed the Chinese targeted only congressional elections. The Chinese government denied all accusations. Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie[edit] The most significant activity by Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie was a $450,000 attempted donation from him to Clinton's legal defense fund, which Trie allegedly delivered in two envelopes each containing several checks and money orders. The fund immediately rejected $70,000 and deposited the remainder, but ordered an investigation of the source. The investigation found that some of the money orders were made out in different names but with the same handwriting, and sequentially numbered. The fund then rejected the donation entirely, and returned the deposited funds two months after the initial contribution.[6] Born in Taiwan, Trie emigrated to the U.S. in 1974. He eventually became an American citizen and co-owner of a restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas. The 1997 special investigation describes Trie as having attempted to develop an international trading business (Daihatsu International Trading Corporation), having maintained or accessed accounts in Little Rock and Washington, D.C. into which Macau-based real estate businessman Ng Lap Seng wired >$1M USD from Macau and Hong Kong accounts, and as having never succeeded in the trading business (based on bank and tax records indicating substantive income only from Ng).[7][page needed] In Little Rock, Trie befriended Clinton, then governor of Arkansas. In addition to the attempted donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie and his immediate family donated $220,000 to the DNC which was also later returned.[7][page needed] Immediately after the donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie sent a letter to President Clinton that expressed concern about America's intervention in tensions arising from China's military exercises being conducted near Taiwan. Trie told the President in his letter that war with China was a possibility should U.S. intervention continue: ...[O]nce the hard parties of the Chinese military incline to grasp U.S. involvement as foreign intervention, is [sic] U.S. ready to face such [a] challenge[?]... [I]t is highly possible for China to launch [sic] real war based on its past behavior in [sic] Sino-Vietnam War and Zhen Bao Tao war with Russia. (Charlie Trie, letter to President Clinton, March 21, 1996)."[7][page needed] After Congressional investigations turned to Trie in late 1996, he left the country for China.[7][page needed] Trie returned to the U.S. in 1998 and was convicted and sentenced to three years probation and four months home detention for violating federal campaign finance laws by making political contributions in someone else's name and for causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).[8]

But wait, the scandal gets even deeper! As reported at Phyllis Schaffly's report eagleforum.org in June of 1998:

Now we know why the Democrats were so vicious in their attacks on Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) and Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). Theirs were the committees that were closing in on the China connection, the scandal that can bring down the Clinton presidency, the scandal that has made Congressmen start to utter the T word (treason). A series of front-page news stories in the New York Times (May 15, 16, 17) essentially vindicated Thompson's charge that the Chinese Communist Government tried to influence the 1996 U.S. election with campaign contributions. The fact that Clinton personally issued the waivers to allow shipments of U.S. technology that greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of Communist China's missiles is grounds for impeachment, regardless of whether or not there was any quid pro quo for those decisions. U.S. space technology was just what China needs to make intercontinental ballistic missiles and point them more accurately at U.S. cities. And he did it despite the objections of the U.S. State Department, Defense Department, Justice Department, and intelligence agencies. Because China shared U.S. technology and equipment with Pakistan, Clinton is also responsible for India starting the nuclear race in Asia. India has fought three wars with its neighbor, Pakistan, since the end of World War II and looks upon Pakistan's new military capabilities as a direct threat. Clinton's policy decisions were, on their face, damaging and dangerous to U.S. national security. And the calendar provides an ominous frame of reference. When Clinton's policy decisions that dramatically benefited China's military capability and Loral's profits, and the hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign donations from the Chinese government and from Loral, are all placed on the calendar, the sequence shows a pattern of corruption that cannot be ignored. That's the real campaign finance scandal.

Bill Clinton betrayed this country for Chinese election contribution cash; this is why I hope Seng is wearing his Kevlar undies in prison, because, with what he knows and can tell to a Grand Jury, he may well single-handedly, destroy Hillary's presidential bid, if the testimony is held before the elections.

Central Bankers are Driving Us All Into the Dirt

One of the major triggers I’ve been warning about is already happening, even before we understand and/or admit that we are in a recession. Global corporate debt now sits at a record $51 trillion and is poised to hit $75 trillion by 2020 – just four years away. If interest rates rise and the economy slows, it will be very hard for companies to roll these bonds over – and then we get what S&P Global Ratings is calling “Crexit.” The bond markets dry up for corporate lending, especially higher-yield junk bonds. This would set off a chain of corporate defaults and bankruptcies that would cause central banks to start to lose control of the economy, as they did in 2008 forward.

Motives Behind the Rebranding of Al-Nusra Front

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, in August 2011, to April 2013, Islamic State and al-Nusra Front were a single organization that chose the banner of “Jabhat al Nusra.” Although, the current al-Nusra Front is led by Abu Mohammad al Jolani but he was appointed as the Emir of al-Nusra Front by Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State, in January 2012. The current Al-Nusra Front is only a splinter group of Islamic State which split away from its parent organization in April 2013 over a dispute between the leaders of two organizations.

Hypocrite Clinton

As Hillary Clinton continues to fall in her Presidential elective polling for her run for President of the United States, she speaks on the "Confederate flag" debate. As she again and again downed the image of the Confederacy as "hate filled" and "a disgusting public image", we cannot help but to go and call her a FULL BLOWN HYPOCRITE for showing complete support for her husband, Bill Clinton's decision to send out "Clinton-Gore" on bumper stickers and fridge magnets in 1992 representing the Confederate Battle flag as a reach out to connect his Presidential votes to the Country community of the South.

INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER: CLINTONS RUN MONEY-LAUNDERING RING

Corsi told WND and Radio America his efforts to shut down the Clinton Foundation have a much simpler focus.

“What I’m maintaining is there is a much easier offense to go after, and that’s what’s called inurement. Inurement is a criminal offense, and it means you run a charity for your own benefit,” Corsi explained.

He said that is much easier to prove than the kind of corruption alleged by Schweizer.

“You don’t need a quid pro quo,” he said. “You just show the financial reporting is so apparently fraudulent and so masking of money that you know went through the corporation because the United Nations reports more that they gave to the Clinton Foundation reports they got. Where did the additional missing money go?”

CLINTON CAMPAIGN: RUSSIA RIGGING US ELECTION BY EXPOSING HOW WE RIGGED ELECTION

Russia is manipulating the 2016 U.S. presidential election by leaking hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) servers — emails that show the DNC rigged and manipulated the Democratic primary in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Call it an exercise in hypocrisy, or call it a deflection to detract from the fact that America’s political process is corrupt beyond belief. Either way, this is the narrative prevailing in the media as the Democratic Party, led by Clinton surrogates, attempts to downplay its own internal corruption by pinning the blame on Russia in what can be described as a “neo-Red Scare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the flip?!?

This charge against Russia makes absolutely zero sense whatsoever.

And the DNC's attempt to use this "excuse" as the reason why the emails got hacked shows that they have utterly zero respect whatsoever for Americans' having the capability to think logically.

But it does demonstrate, painfully clearly, that neither the DNC nor Candidate Clinton can take personal responsibility for anything; that is one the factors that makes a Clinton presidency so horrifically dangerous, both for this country, and the world.

The plain, miserable and unvarnished truth is that Clinton is, at the end of the day, one of the elites; these are the people whose interests she will defend and enrich; not those of We the People.

Under her watch, we can expect more wars; a return to the draft of both our young men and young women; more income inequality; more American jobs outsourced and offshored; more enhanced military and financial aid to Israel (which is, BTW, illegal, per the Symington Amendment) with which to crush and ultimately destroy the Palestinian people and their hopes of statehood; and more economic misery in general.

A Decade Of Evidence Demonstrates The Dramatic Failure Of Globalisation

By Graham Vanbergen – According to wikipedia, Globalisation is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas and other aspects of culture. However, over the last ten years there has been a sea change decline in all the indicators that would measure the success of this model. Democracy, economic growth, freedom and an interchange of world views and culture has all but been abandoned to a vice like grip of globalisation driven more by the corporate principles of power and greed resulting in war, terrorism, a biblical refugee crisis, fear and a fully co-opted media.

HEDGE-FUND MONEY: $48.5 MILLION FOR HILLARY CLINTON, $19,000 FOR DONALD TRUMP

Owners and employees of hedge funds have made $122.7 million in campaign contributions this election cycle, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics—more than twice what they gave in the entire 2012 cycle and nearly 14% of total money donated from all sources so far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is very publicly owned by the corporations which support her; this means that there will be absolutely nothing in her platform to seriously improve the state of affairs for We the People, many of whom are struggling like crazy just to stay afloat.

But I guarantee you this: those corporations who own her will simply get more wealthy under her watch, because all of her newly proposed tax burdens will fall upon us, rather than them, marginalizing and destroying what is left of the middle class in this country to absolute zero.

Will Any Future POTUS Matter (Other Than Launching More Wars)?

My own work has focused on two dynamics of the cost of increasingly unproductive complex systems. One is privilege, which can be defined as unearned wealth and power. Privilege is by definition unproductive, and a drain on the economy and society. Once the privileged class (i.e. the protected class that shifts risks and taxes to the unprotected/non-elite classes) expands and social mobility decays, the economy collapses under the dead weight of the privileged class.

I covered the history and dynamics of this process in The Lesson of Empires: Once Privilege Limits Social Mobility, Collapse Is Inevitable (April 18, 2016).

The second dynamic is the destructive consequences of a self-serving political-financial elite that is structurally incapable of real reform because real reform will collapse the high-cost structures that enable the concentration of wealth and power.

I explain these dynamics in Why Our Status Quo Failed and Is Beyond Reform.

Good Thing John Hinckley Jr. Only Shot the President. If He Sold Drugs, He Might Still Be Locked Up.

Hinckley’s release had me thinking about Luis Rivera, Barbra Scrivner, and Antoinette Frink: the three non-violent offenders who received a cumulative 185+ years in prison for far lesser crimes than shooting the president. All three were convicted of non-violent drug charges. Rivera was convicted of trafficking cocaine and was sentenced to life in prison. He served 30 years of that sentence—nearly as much time as Hinckley.

No, We Don’t Know Yet That Russia is Behind DNC Email Hacks. Here’s Why.

There is a strong narrative underway. It was propelled largely by Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, and members of the Democratic National Committee after news broke over the weekend that thousands of embarassing internal emails were posted to WikiLeaks. The theory goes that the Russian government is behind the hack because they want to meddle in U.S. politics to help Donald Trump (who is “cozy” with Vladimir Putin).

Different media organizations continue to cite “government sources” as confirmation of Russia’s evil intentions. (Russia has denied any involvement). And, if you actually examine the facts, you will see that we simply don’t have enough yet to prove this theory out. Yes, there are some indicators that it could be Russia. Yes, there is reportedly metadata hidden in early documents that show they were edited with Russian language settings. Yes, Crowd Strike, a cyber firm hired by the DNC, claims that they found two hacker groups associated

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

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

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

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

“It’s what’s wrong with politics today,” the narrator said. “Hillary Clinton will say anything to get elected. Now she’s making false attacks on Barack Obama. The Washington Post says Clinton isn’t telling the truth.”

Overly Simple Energy-Economy Models Give Misleading Answers

In the book Secular Cycles, Peter Turchin and Surgey Nefedov approach the problem of what causes civilizations to collapse using a modeling approach. According to their analysis, the kinds of things that caused civilizations to collapse very much corresponded to the symptoms of increasing complexity:

Problems tended to develop when the population in an area outgrew its resource base–either the population rose too high, or the resources become degraded, or both. The leaders would adopt a plan, which we might consider adding “complexity,” to solve the problems. Such a plan might include raising taxes to be able to afford a bigger army, and using that army to invade another territory. Or it might involve a plan to build irrigation, so that the current land becomes more productive. A modern approach might be to increase tourism, so that the wealth obtained from tourists can be traded for needed resources such as food.
According to Turchin and Nefedov, one problem that arises with the adoption of the new plan is increased wealth disparity. More leaders are needed for the new complex solutions. At the same time, it becomes more difficult for those at the bottom of the hierarchy (such as new workers) to obtain adequate wages.

WINSLOW, Ariz. (AP) — A Navajo woman who was fatally shot by an Arizona police officer earlier this year had medical scissors in her hand as she approached the lawman, body camera video shows.

The shooting of the Navajo woman led tribal officials to urge the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the treatment of American Indians in towns that border the Navajo Nation. A Justice Department spokesman did not immediately say Wednesday whether the office planned to do so.

Anti-2nd Amendment crusaders in Washington State and Oregon are looking to pass California-style gun control legislation with the goal of forming a “West Coast Wall” of draconian anti-firearm regulations along the Pacific coast. The effort is being spearheaded by the anti-2nd Amendment groups Washington CeaseFire and Ceasefire Oregon, both of which have lobbied heavily for stronger state and federal firearm laws for decades.

President Hillary and World War III

I think there are about 75 separate reasons why there should have been a full-scale investigation by the FBI in the strange death of Vince Foster. I wish there were some agency that was not part of the government that could investigate crimes, which is part of the problem, of course. The FBI is really just an overrated, bloated, politically-driven bureaucracy. I sincerely doubt, for instance, that they’ll ever go after The Clinton Foundation, which is clearly nothing but a gigantic slush fund.

Politician Speak At The DNC

When American politicians speak it’s as if they want to disillusion you forever on the significance and veracity of words. They seem to hope to destroy your faith in the liberating potential of humanity’s glorious capacity for language. They and their writers and speaking consultants craft rhetoric and delivery to turn wrong into right, falsehood into truth, fiction into fact, left into right, war into peace, and hate into love. It’s straight out of Orwell, almost.

Pelosi: Trump voters are dumb, racist and homophobic

Aged House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) doesn’t believe GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s popularity has anything to do with Democrat Hillary Clinton’s long list of scandals or her life of political corruption. Support for Trump, she contends, boils down to the “three Gs.” -- As far as Pelosi is concerned, Trump supporters love God and guns and hate gays— a testament, she says, to the Democratic belief that GOP voters are uneducated troglodytes.

Woman Doesn’t Wait For Police: Shoots Ex-Boyfriend Who Broke Into Home, Saving Herself And 11-Year-Old Son

43-year-old Patrick Dewayne Decker is no stranger to violence. Convicted of charges ranging from rape to kidnapping and assault, it’s not a far fetched notion to think something like a restraining order would be any obstacle for him. That’s why his ex-girlfriend got a gun. It all came down to a simple choice: her and her son or Decker. She chose herself and her son. She chose right.

Liberals Have an Explanation for Hillary’s Critics: Sexism

Whether or not it actually means anything to have a female president, Clinton supporters in the media are already reminding us that it will play a big role in the election. Not because it has to, but because they won’t have it any other way. Now we’re going to find out if the Democratic nominee can rely on constant victimhood to put her over the top in November.

Victimhood? The former first lady and secretary of state? Victim of what, exactly?

Sexism, silly. That’s what.

Don’t expect the clueless GOP to ask why the hell the CIA had a compound in Libya in the first place? Never forget that the GOP is the stupid party.

FLASHBACK - BILL CLINTON LOOTED SOCIAL SECURITY TO CREATE HIS FEDERAL BUDGET SURPLUS

Well, the truth is...ah, shoot, well, we all know there's Washington's math problem. Alan Sloan in this past week's Newsweek says he spends 150%. What we've been doing, Mr. Chairman, in all reality, is taken a hundred billion out of the Social Security Trust Fund, transferring it over to the spending column, and spending it. Our friends to the left here are getting their tax cuts, we getting our spending increases, and hollering surplus, surplus, and balanced budget, and balanced budget plans when we continue to spend a hundred billion more than we take in.

Donald Trump And Vladimir Putin: Potential Partners ? Not Allies Or Even Friends

Reporters and pundits covering the presidential campaign of Donald Trump have been torn between two conflicting narratives: The first is that Trump is a reckless amateur and, as president with his finger on the nuclear button, he would bring the world to the brink of catastrophe. The second is that Trump is a cat’s paw for Russian President Vladimir Putin and, as president, he would, advertently or inadvertently, work to implement Moscow’s agenda for world domination.

Ten things less likely to kill you than the cops

1,208[i] people were killed by the cops in America in 2015. The number was 1,111[ii] in 2014. With 624[iii] killed so far in 2016, we're on track for 1,168 by the end of the year. Based on an average of 1,160 people killed by police per year in America, let's look at your odds of being killed by a cop relative to some other common (and not-so-common) things that might kill you.

Living in America...

You're 1.8 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by the heat.
You're 20 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a bee, wasp, or hornet.
You're 24 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by lightning.
You're 41 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a dog.
You're 53 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a terrorist attack.............

Over 55k Americans injured, killed by US police in just 1 yr – study

Who is the enemy of America? Russia? China? NOPE! The district of criminals is America's worst and deadliest enemy. And here is the proof!

More than 55,000 Americans were either killed or injured by US police in just one year, a new study has revealed. Most of the deaths were from fatal firearm wounds or excessive use of taser devices.
The study, titled 'Perils of police action: a cautionary tale from US data sets,' covers the year 2012 and offers greater context to the issue of police brutality, which has only grown bigger in the four years since the research.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY OFFICIAL PLATFORM IS PRO-FRACKING, PRO-MONSANTO, PRO-TPP, AND ANTI-GMO LABELING

Because of the diverse audience we attract, there are a lot of Natural News readers who are still supporting the Democrats. If you're one of those people, it's time for you to question what you're really supporting because you may not be aware that the democratic party openly supports fracking, Monsanto, vaccine mandates, chemical agriculture and the TPP. On top of that, they're mostly opposed to GMO labeling, too. Only Sen. Sanders really stood up to the biotech industry on that point, and now after the DNC email leaks, you know how the democrat establishment hosed Sanders with a vindictive smear campaign to destroy his chances of winning the nomination.

The truth is, the Democrat party is not a party of progressive ideas. Even the progressive news website Common Dreams has authored this piece blasting the DNC for its betrayals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By voting for Hillary Clinton this November, you will be voting for a criminal machine; a narcotopcracy; a Frankenstinian environment hater; a lover of war and the military industrial complex.

You will be voting for more wars, the re-introduction of the draft, and more offshored/outsourced jobs.

FLASHBACK - Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Democrats and corporate media are trying to use Trump's jokes about Russia and the missing 30,000 emails from Hillary's private server to claim is a "traitor" linked to Putin. But, as this New York Times article shows, there is a far stronger link of corruption leading from Russia to Hillary Clinton!

Why This U.S. Election Needs Even More Putin

***
Trump is right to call attention to Clinton's missing emails. Clearly, she didn't just withhold personal, irrelevant ones -- investigators had to obtain some from other sources. Then there are Clinton's speeches to Wall Street banks, at $225,000 a pop, which Bernie Sanders has demanded that she release. And I'm pretty sure digging around in the computer network of the Clinton Foundation would produce some fascinating material about the family's ties with corrupt regimes.
***
The U.S. press knew that it may have been Russia that hacked the DNC -- and yet they analyzed the contents of the leak and published the story of Democratic collusion against Sanders. That disclosure served the public interest, regardless of the leak's source -- as long as the material was genuine. Whether its Russian hackers or Woodward and Bernstein who reveal a secret, the public needs to know.>>>

Smoke And Mirrors In Philadelphia

This election, Clinton supporters argue, is about stopping Trump. In fact, it is becoming increasingly clear that it is about stopping the growing movement in this country in the direction of genuine populism. Speaker after speaker took the stage on the first night of the Democratic National Convention had to fight to be heard over chants of “Bernie, Bernie.” There was little applause for most of the speakers, but Sanders’ reception, when he finally took the stage, made it clear that he is the real popular choice for the Democratic nomination.

NOBODY KNOWS WHO’S PAYING FOR THE PRIVATELY FUNDED DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION

Earlier this week, in my article titled, Hillary Clinton is in Deep Trouble – “Hordes of Wall Street Executives” Descend Upon Philly, I highlighted how all the Wall Street executives and lobbyists who avoided the RNC were excitedly flooding into the Democratic Convention. Here’s an excerpt:

Lobbyists are being welcomed back into the fold of the Democratic Party as the Obama era draws to a close.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has accepted more than $9 million in bundled donations from registered lobbyists, while the DNC has rolled back the lobbyist bans that Obama put into place.

“In 2008 and 2012, there was no integration with the [Obama] campaign,” said Al Mottur, a senior Democratic lobbyist at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, adding that he would have liked to have helped. “Now, the campaign is welcoming — they’re open to us. That’s why I’ve done as much work for her as I’ve done on her behalf.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, lobbyists are flocking to the Clinton campaign; she's openly for sale, and will take anyone's money.

Speaking of which, there is a very "interesting" correlation in the funds the Clinton Foundation openly accepted from various North African and Middle Eastern countries. As reported at breitbart.com on 14 June of this year:

Hillary Clinton Took Millions from Anti-LGBT Countries That Jail and Execute Gays

In her response to the Islamic terror attack in Orlando, Hillary Clinton called on the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait to stop allowing their citizens to fund terrorists and to “stop supporting radical schools and mosques.” However, she failed to mention that the Clinton Foundation has spent years accepting millions in donations from countries that throw homosexuals in prison, fine them, sentence them to hard labor, and even execute them for the “crime” of being gay.

But trust me, there's a lot more ugly with these countries from which she took this money.

So what else do the countries of Algeria, the Sultanate of Brunei, Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE all have in common, in the 21st century?!?

The all still permit the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.

Countries which still permit female genital mutilation

The correlation is nothing less than completely staggering.

So I have an ethics question to ask of the Clinton campaign; how in the name of heaven, as a person who is allegedly pro-woman, and pro-lgbtq, could Hillary Clinton knowingly take money from countries which fine, imprison, torture, and slaughter members of the lgbtq community, and permit female genital mutilation?!?

Hey, DNC: I'm waiting.....and your silence is thoroughly deafening.

Scott Adams: Selling Past the Close

I’ve been watching the Democratic National Convention and wondering if this will be the first time in history that we see a candidate’s poll numbers plunge after a convention.

On the surface, the convention is going great. Michelle Obama made a speech for the ages. Bill Clinton was his masterful self. Bernie gave a full-throated endorsement of Clinton. The whole affair has been a festival of inclusiveness. The media is eating it like cake. All good, right?

That’s how it looks on the surface. And if you’re already a Clinton supporter, it probably looks great all the way down.

By November, Russian hackers could target voting machines

Russia was behind the hacks into the Democratic National Committee’s computer network that led to the release of thousands of internal emails just before the party’s convention began, U.S. intelligence agencies have reportedly concluded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let is start by recalling that Sony Pictures hack, which the same U.S. Intelligence agencies concluded came from North Korea, only to be humiliated when it turned out to be an internal leak by a disgruntled employee. One wonders if recently assassinated DNC IT worker Seth Rich might have been the real source of the WikiLeaks data.

Second, WikiLeaks, while not revealing the source, has denied it was Russia.

Third, I find it rather odd that the Washington Post is only now concerned about election fraud, but only so long as they can use it to bash Russia. Anyone who has visited blackboxvoting.org or seen the HBO documentary "Hacking Democracy" knows the entire US election system is a cesspool of fraud. And we do not need to look at Putin to find who will be cheating this November.

A report by Election Justice USA has taken a look at the known frauds that took place during the Democratic primaries and concluded that 184 delegates that should have gone to Bernie Sanders were instead delivered to Hillary Clinton. Absent the cheating, Bernie would have won the nomination.

A recent Stanford study showed that in precincts where paper ballots and hand counting were used, the official results matched the exit polls, but when electronic voting machines were used, the official results always shifted towards Hillary by 8-9% versus the exit polls!

Why isn't the Washington Post reporting on all the lawsuits that have been filed regarding Democratic primary cheaters? Why is the Washington Post engaging in baseless speculations? Is it because, should Trump achieve a landslide victory too huge for the election riggers to overcome, the entire election will be tossed out under the spurious claim that Russia hacked the voting machines?

I have a solution to the problem. Let's ban all electronic voting machines for November. That way the election cannot be hacked, by Russia .... or someone much closer to home!

96-page report finds that Bernie lost 184 delegates to DNC election fraud

Election Justice USA has established an upper estimate of 184 pledged delegates lost by Senator Bernie Sanders as a consequence of specific irregularities and instances of fraud. Adding these delegates to Senator Sanders’ pledged delegate total and subtracting the same number from Hillary Clinton’s total would more than erase the 359 pledged delegate gap between the two candidates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, absent the cheating, Bernie would have won the nomination!

BOTH CONVENTIONS LEAVE PALESTINE OFF THEIR AGENDAS ~~ NOW WHAT?

“We reject the false notion that Israel is an occupier,” the platform’s language on Israel, introduced by GOP delegate Alan Clemmons, reads. “Support for Israel is an expression of Americanism, and it is the responsibility of our government to advance policies that reflect Americans’ strong desire for a relationship with no daylight between America and Israel.”

The Democrats did not do much better. CNN reported on July 10 that “Hillary Clinton supporters rejected an effort Saturday to add an amendment to the Democratic platform which would call for ‘an end to occupations and illegal settlements’ in Palestinian territories.” The rejection of that amendment dealt a blow to any hope that the platform would reflect and address the reality on the ground, a reality of occupation approaching its 50-year anniversary.
