Ahead of Greek election, Syriza's 'lost generation' deserts Tsipras

So divided has Syriza's youth wing become over the direction of Greece's leftist party, that when its council planned to convene at the end of August, the meeting was abandoned. Too many of its 71 members were on the point of quitting.

The incident showed the disillusionment Syriza's twenty-somethings feel with leader Alexis Tsipras, the former Communist student activist they once celebrated as one of their own.

A senior executive at a U.S. bank is actually going to prison for his actions following the financial crisis.

Ebrahim Shabudin, the ex-chief credit officer for United Commercial Bank, was convicted of fraud for falsifying records to hide major loan losses from auditors and investors after the federal government stepped in to help the failing bank under its Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). He was sentenced to eight years.

“This massive criminal scheme defrauded investors, including Treasury who became an investor through TARP,” Christy Romero, the Special Inspector General for TARP, said, according toHousingWire. “He was essentially gambling with taxpayers’ bailout dollars, and it was taxpayers who ultimately lost more than $300 million when the bank failed one year after receiving TARP funds.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's a good start, but what about the rest of the bankster fraudsters?!?

And I have to tell you; I hope this guy isn't going to a Club Fed!

Will Uncle Sam Confiscate Gold Again?

There are growing concerns internationally that in the event of another Wall Street or global stock market crash and a new systemic crisis – a Eurozone debt crisis or another Lehman Brothers collapse – there could be enforced bank closures or extended bank holidays in the EU and U.S. as seen in Greece recently.

The New York Times

In this scenario, deposit boxes and vaults in U.S. banks and financial institutions could be sealed and gold confiscated again.

There is a legal precedent for this. April 5th, 1933 – at the height of the Great Depression – was the day when U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt instructed all American citizens to hand over all their gold coins and bars to the Federal Government.

Every coin, bar and certificate had to be handed in to Roosevelt’s government or else one would face a very large fine of $10,000 or 10 years in jail. That is whopping fine of $180,000 fine in today’s money.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has agreed to early parliamentary elections and to share some power with his opponents, a concession that may facilitate a broader international coalition against Islamic State, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Russia would consider participating in the coalition and the Russian president has already discussed the issue with U.S. President Barack Obama, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, Putin told reporters in Vladivostok on Friday. Russia has been pushing for a wider campaign against Islamic State that would include Assad, something the U.S. and Europe have opposed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As always, Putin has played this brilliantly.

Statistician Finds Proof That Our Elections Are a Sham

Many of us have suspected for years that American elections are a sham. Not only does it seem like nothing changes no matter how many times we vote the bums out, but sometimes the votes themselves don’t seem to add up. Especially now that we have electronic voting machines, which don’t provide a whole lot of accountability and are notoriously easy to hack.

Fortunately, you can still tell when the votes don’t make sense, even with electronic voting machines. In states like Kansas, where in some counties they use electronic voting machines that also record the votes on paper tapes, there seems to be some blatant inconsistencies with the voting results from the past few elections.

‘West creates refugees by destroying Islamic nations’ – Chechen leader

The head of Russia’s Chechen Republic claims the current asylum seeker crisis in European countries originated in the aggressive policies of the United States and the EU. He also called upon all Muslim nations to jointly fight the root of the problem.

“If today no one rises against the inhumane policies of the Western countries, tomorrow the disaster may come to any Muslim country. I call upon you to urgently discuss this problem, to develop a unified position and to save the lives of thousands of people,” Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram account (Kadyrov uses Instagram as a social network for public statements).

“Tens of thousands of Muslims are dying. Women, old people, children and young people as well. Under such conditions the leaders of Islamic countries has no right to remain silent, to stand aside and remain simple observers,” he added.

Jimmy Carter Is Correct that the U.S. Is No Longer a Democracy

On July 28th, Thom Hartmann interviewed former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, and, at the very end of his show (as if this massive question were merely an aftethought), asked him his opinion of the 2010 Citizens United decision and the 2014 McCutcheon decision, both decisions by the five Republican judges on the U.S. Supreme Court. These two historic decisions enable unlimited secret money (including foreign money) now to pour into U.S. political and judicial campaigns. Carter answered:

Pushing back migrants to Serbia with rifles

In order to defend against waves of migrants from the Middle East, apart from the already installed a barbed wire fence on the border with Serbia, will soon be deployed strong forces of the Hungarian army and police. Hungarians intend that migrants returning to Serbia, where they were first recorded. Analyst Dragomir Andjelkovic believes that Serbian authorities must clearly says that migrants entered Serbia from the EU countries - Greece and Bulgaria.

- If the EU intends to be back in Serbia, it is a serious fraud and the new occupation of Serbia. State leaders Serbia, would commit treason if he accepted it. I believe, however, that the current government will not agree to the intention of the EU, but that the citizens in local communities self-organize and tell the whole world that a small and poor Serbia is not ready, nor is it able to house tens or hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers - says Andjelkovic.

Virginia Reporter’s Father, Andy Parker, Drops Everything to Focus Full-Time on Gun Control

Alison Parker’s father Andy has announced he is dropping out of the race for the Henry County Board of Supervisors to focus all of his attention on his new “bigger mission” — gun control.

“I lost my daughter. And I’m not going to lose this fight,” Parker said. “We just want to keep guns out of the hands of crazy people. When I take on something, I go at it with a bulldog’s tenacity.”

Citing Sandy Hook, the Aurora shooting, and the Gabby Giffords shooting as what should have been “tipping points” for gun control, Parker says he has to believe “this is the one”.

RUSSIAN Ambassador Chepurin: The EU and the United States making of Serbia collection center for migrants

Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Chepurin, today at the international conference dedicated to migrant warned Serbian public about the plan of America and the European Union.

US and UK have distanced themselves ocean and the wall of migrants and Serbia should help the EU to a problem that is not created. Because of acquis Serbia can sprinkle a new wave of migrants, but in the north, as some EU migrants will come back - said Chepurin.

He once remarked that Serbia will become a buffer zone and EU migrants.
In Greece can not because it is declared unsafe state, and since Serbia's EU Brussels will most migrants sent to collection centers that will be everywhere in Serbia - so the Serbian state will be a buffer zone, said Russian Ambassador Alexander Chepurin internationally konferciji dedicated to migrants which is being held today at the Russian House.

How EU officials shrugged off aid to Israeli settlements

During the past few years, the European Commission, the EU’s executive bureaucracy, has been questioned by many Palestine solidarity activists on why it approved scientific research grants to the cosmetics-maker Ahava.

The EU hierarchy was — rightly — made to feel awkward by these questions. Ahava’s main factory is located in a Jewish-only settlement in the West Bank; like all other nations in the world, EU governments regard Israel’s construction and expansion of those colonies as contrary to international law.

Double displacement: Palestinians flee violence in Syria, then Lebanon

Having fled Yarmouk, a besieged camp for Palestinian refugees in Syria, during 2013, they took shelter in Lebanon’s Ein al-Hilweh camp. Last week, they were uprooted because of fighting between armed groups within that camp.

In the Musalli Mosque — just outside the camp — Najem, his wife and his four daughters have been sleeping on the floor alongside hundreds of others who fled the violence.

“We had nowhere else to go,” he said. “A lot of people came to the mosques for shelter but others had to sleep in the streets.”

John Key has got it wrong on refugees - doing nothing is not an option

Note:read comments at end.

It's been a very interesting week for John Key and the National Party.

I think the party's strategists thought their centre-right voter base would support them when it came to the refugee crisis. But as more and more horrific images have been beamed around the world, it's become clear that an increasing number of New Zealanders feel we should be doing more.

• 'My children slipped from my hands' - Father describes devastating loss
• Refugee crisis: What can you do to help?
• Another harrowing image: Father throws his wife and child on train tracks

The images are horrendous. Dead Syrian children washing up on European beaches.

Distraught mothers holding their babies and looking through razor wire. People dying, suffocating in trucks trying to flee their desperate and dead-end situations.

The situation has deteriorated and rapidly. It is nothing, if not emotive.

Tracey Barnett: Would you host a refugee?

You've gotta love those crazy Icelanders. They may be a small country, they may be tucked up in a corner of the world few notice, but every once in a while, they come out with rare brilliance.

In the midst of the worst refugee crisis the world has seen since WWII, the good Icelandic government gave their answer to this worldwide humanitarian crisis. Their government stumped up to announce they would take a walloping 50 more places for refugees. The Icelandic public was not amused.

So what did they do? An Icelandic author asked how many folks would be willing to house or help a refugee, despite the government's lack of initiative. Suddenly the Icelandic public flooded his website with 10,000 offers of help.

You can guess where I'm going with this. Well, what do you know, I happen to be a Kiwi author.

Chinese buyers want 50 per cent of Silver Fern Farms

Chinese interests may be close to acquiring 50 per cent of Silver Fern Farms, in a deal that would increase the dominance of New Zealand's biggest meat exporter and erode farmer control of the industry, say shareholders pushing for a merger with Alliance Group.

Dunedin-based SFF has been seeking a $100 million capital injection to strengthen its balance sheet before banking facilities expire in October and hired Goldman Sachs last year to assess options.

Its shares were halted from trading on the Unlisted platform last month and the company has been briefing influential farmer shareholders around the country this week, ahead of an expected public announcement next week.

Shareholder Allan Richardson, who heads the SFF merger group, said the word from farmers attending those meetings is that a foreign-owned company is looking for a 50/50 joint venture and equal boardroom control in addition to making a $100 million investment.

Hillary Clinton’s unfavorable rating approaches record territory: poll

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s unfavorable numbers are approaching record territory, according to a poll released Wednesday.

Fifty-three percent of Americans said they view Mrs. Clinton unfavorably, up 8 points since midsummer, while 45 percent said they view her favorably, down 7 points, the ABC News/Washington Post poll said.

Her unfavorable score is a single point from its highest in ABC/Post polls dating back 23 years, which came in April 2008, during the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner’s last run for the White House.

Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who is weighing a 2016 run for the White House, had an even 46 percent/46 percent favorable/unfavorable split.

Trump hits 30 percent in new poll

Donald Trump has reached a new high in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

According to a Monmouth University survey released on Thursday, Trump takes 30 percent support nationally, a four-point gain over the same survey from before the first GOP debate.

Ben Carson is a distant second place in the poll, taking 18 percent support. The retired neurosurgeon has risen sharply in the polls over the past month. He was at only 5 percent support in the same poll from early August.

The rest of the Republican field isn’t even in the same ballpark.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) take 8 percent support each, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio (Florida) at 5 percent, and former businesswoman Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee at 4 percent a piece.

Police in Texas Hospital Shoot Patient in the Chest

Christian's worst fears proved true.

Somehow in the 10 minutes between the call to pick up Alan and his parents' arrival, two off-duty Houston police officers working security at St. Joseph were summoned by hospital staff to help them control Alan, who had allegedly become combative. During the violent encounter, according to the police and the family's legal team, Alan struck the two officers in the head, leaving one of them with a concussion. After using a Taser weapon to subdue Alan, one of the officers unholstered his gun and fired a single bullet into Alan's chest.

Fortunately, the bullet missed all of his vital organs. But the news utterly broke his parents. How, they wondered, could trained medical professionals have sicced armed police on their son, a registered mental health patient in the hospital's care?

Heartbreaking Monument Listing 66 Children Killed by Poroshenko's Civilian Bombings

...Children were caught in the crossfire. And they died from war, not by natural death. Their lives were just beginning, but they ended at the start. Logically, a normal government would declare mourning in the country. But we didn’t see this. Instead, they reported on television that Russian invaders had seized power in the city, as separatists shelled their own cities, killing themselves, and the Ukrainian army is protecting innocent people from terrorists. Everywhere, on all channels, the Ukrainian flag was hung with the inscription in two languages: “united country.” But there was already nothing left of this country. Then I realized that, no, we are not one country. If there is grief in the country, then the whole people would together experience this and grieve for the dead, especially the children. But there was no such grieving in Ukraine.

"There are risks that Russian property abroad can be arrested in connection with the YUKOS case. We had those risks. That is why we (the museum) and the Ministry of Culture decided that the risks were higher than possible positive results from this exhibition. We can see many unfriendly moves these days.

Japanese businesses in US are hostages of anti-Russian sanctions — JBIC

Japanese businesses operating in the United States have become "hostages" of US sanctions against Russia, Tadashi Maeda, senior managing director of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), told TASS on the sidelines of the first Eastern Economic Forum.
"The newly-emerged threat is the negative effect of sanctions, in particular, those by the United States," he said. "We are unable to use the dollar in granting credit lines. We can use only the yen, and this entails technical problems," he said.
Maeda acknowledged the existence of certain political disagreements, but at the same time remarked they had no effects on the business community.
"The economy and politics are different things. The US sanctions are the worst obstruction," he added.

General Motors workers voted overwhelmingly for strike action across the country last week with “yes” votes making up 97 percent of the total. After a decade-long wage freeze, workers want to abolish the two-tier wage system accepted by the UAW and recoup their lost income now that the automaker is reaping huge profits and rewarding its top investors with billions.

Are Hillary Clinton's dominoes starting to topple in email probe?

Hillary Clinton's dominoes appear to be toppling over as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), inspectors general from a number of government agencies, and a equally large number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that investigate and expose government corruption intensify their investigations of Clinton and her minions, according to news reports on Thursday. While the focus of the probe is Clinton's privately-owned Internet server being used for the transfer of classified intelligence, the probe may also encompass her husband's financial bonanza allegedly accumulated through speeches for foreign entities with whom his wife conducted State Department business as the Secretary of State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are two other scandals lurking in the shadows behind the email server itself that need to be fully exposed.

The first is the now confirmed flow of weapons from Libya through the consulate in Benghazi to arm Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria. This technically constitutes treason, which is defined as giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. Al Qaeda and ISIS are presented to the American people as our enemies in the war on terror. So why is the US Government giving them weapons?

The other scandal is not proven, but there is considerable circumstantial evidence to support it.

Back when Bill Clinton was running for his second term in the White House, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China, drawing huge criticism in what later became known as China-gate. At the same time, large amounts of cash poured into his campaign through Chinese American citizens. Later it was revealed that much of that cash had come from Chinese intelligence agencies!

So with a past history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own private property, to sell to whom they wished, let us now look at the combination of a private email server, outside US Government control and monitoring, with weak security and no encryption, on which are parked highly classified US secrets, ripe for the picking. Coupled with a "charitable" foundation that has seen many foreign governments make "contributions", we have the perfect set up for Hillary Clinton to have run an espionage operation right out of the US State Department!

No secret in Russian-Syrian military technical cooperation — Russian Foreign Ministry

"I saw reports about Russian planes on the Syrian territory. I also saw comments on this matter by Russia’s Defense Ministry and presidential administration that disavowed this information. There is nothing to add here," Zakharova said.
"Sensational statements are often made about military-technical cooperation between Russia and Syria - that it grows or decreases," she said. "We see them in different parts of the world. And it is always made to sound sensational. We say that we never tried to make a secret out of this. This is our consistent position connected with assisting official Damascus in its fight against the terrorism threat," the diplomat stressed.
Russia continues military-technical cooperation with Syria in the routine mode, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier on Thursday.

Russia's Udmurtia official says US introduced sanctions based on outdated information

The new US sanctions recently introduced against the Izhevsk-based Kupol Electromechanical Plant will have no effect on its operations, Udmurt Industry and Trade Minister Oleg Rodionov told TASS on Thursday.
"Kupol is a subsidiary of the Almaz-Antey company that encountered sanctions a year or a year and a half ago," Radionov said.
He added that he could not understand what the sanctions list authors were motivated by when putting Kupol on the list, since "there are virtually no new restrictions in it".
"Maybe, they just get information on the Internet and use it as a pretext or, maybe, they use information from some individuals, outdated information," the minister said. Rodionov presumed that US officials possibly used information on Kupol’s deliveries: the firm had supplied its "products to Iran, but it was before the sanctions were introduced" - 5 to 10 years before.

US applies restrictive measures to Russian airline for re-exporting Boeing jet to Iran

As follows from the document, the US government accuses the airline, which it calls Air Bashkortostan, of re-exporting Boeing jet to Iran in bypass of the rules and regulations effective in the US.
Specifically, the Department of Commerce says the airline re-exported a Boeing-757 jet from Russia to Iran between January 7, 2009, and March 19, 2009 in violation of the regulations and rules in effect in the US The transactions were valued at a total of $ 4.5 million.
Some of the rules the transactions ostensibly violated were related to control "for antiterrorism reasons," it said.
"The aircraft were reexported pursuant to lease agreements between Air Bashkortostan and Eram Air, an airline based in Iran, and were operated on flights into and out of Iran […]," the order said.
"During the period of the leases, the maintenance of the aircraft was performed in Iran," the document indicated.

Trump to sign GOP pledge, commit to back party nominee

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump will sign a pledge Thursday to support the GOP nominee in next year’s general election, effectively ruling out a third-party or independent run, according to two Republicans familiar with the move.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump just announced that he has signed the pledge, and in my opinion he just made the biggest mistake of his campaign! The threat of running as an Independent was the only leverage he had over the GOP, and now that he has signed the pledge, the GOP is free to orchestrate his removal the way they did Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012. Any promises of support Trump got from the GOP are utterly worthless.

More Race War Psyops: #BlackLivesMatter Activist Arrested for Tweeting "Kill All the White People"

Let's take a step back for a moment and look at this thing.

The Tweet, you will notice was just sent September 2nd at 4:45 pm.

According to the police document below, authorities were alerted about the Twitter threat at 4:43 pm.

If time stamps told it all at face value, it would appear as if the threat was called in two minutes before the Tweet was actually sent.

Even with a few hours difference for server issues that some people claim can periodically happen on Twitter which mess with the timestamp (and somehow always seem to only affect controversial Tweets), still. That was awfully quick…

The Lisa Foster Interview - THE FBI'S FINAL FD-302A MEMO ON THE INTERVIEW.

Robert Fiske based his conclusion that Vincent Foster committed suicide in part on a report from the FBI in which it was reported that Lisa Foster had recognized the gun found with Vincent Foster, proving that Foster used his own gun to kill himself (on page 38 of the Fiske Report). This conclusion overrode concerns about the lack of fingerprints on the gun and the fact that it had been built from two 1913 Colt Revolvers.

Fiske's sole source for this conclusion was the FBI and it's report of their interview with Lisa Foster, in which she was shown a gun by the interviewers; a gun represented to her as the gun found with the body of her husband at Fort Marcy Park.

The end result of that FBI interviews was that "LISA FOSTER believes that the gun found at Fort Marcy Park may be the silver gun which she brought up with her other belongings when she permanently moved to Washington" (page 16-17 FBI interview file 29D-LR-35063).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am posting this part of the murder of Vincent Foster as a reminder that the FBI has a prior history of covering up the Clintons' crimes, and that we should not expect the FBI to conduct an honest investigation into the possibility that Hillary Clinton was using her weak email server and charitable foundation to run an espionage operation, selling classified information to foreign buyers in exchange for "donations."

It started in late May. When geoecologist Steffen Zuther and his colleagues arrived in central Kazakhstan to monitor the calving of one herd of saigas, a critically endangered, steppe-dwelling antelope, veterinarians in the area had already reported dead animals on the ground. “But since there happened to be die-offs of limited extent during the last years, at first we were not really alarmed,” Zuther, the international coordinator of the Altyn Dala Conservation Initiative, told Live Science.

ECB: Mario Draghi sends markets soaring by hinting at possible increase of QE programme

European Central Bank (ECB) president Mario Draghi has hinted today (3 September 2015) that the organisation might extend its Quantitative Easing (QE) programme, sending stock markets soaring. Germany's DAX was the biggest riser, jumping 2% on the news in the afternoon, while the FTSE 100 gained 1.3% and the French CAC 40 was up over 1.8%. The Dow Jones shortly jumped more than 100 points at the open.

So the stock market is not going up because the underlying businesses are doing any better, but because more instant money is being poured all over the financial corporations to play with!

EXCLUSIVE: Hillary’s Email Server Had A Webmail Portal That Allowed UNRESTRICTED ACCESS To Hackers

Hillary Clinton’s private email server had a webmail subdomain that made it highly vulnerable to hackers, Breitbart News has learned.

clintonemail.com had a subdomain called webmail.clintonemail.com, according to the account’s GoDaddy.com encryption certificate. That subdomain is a web-based email portal that considerably weakened the server’s defenses and invited attack.

A webmail portal allows web traffic to bypass hardware and software firewalls to easily access the server’s mail “interface.”

If a user accesses emails through a web portal on an unsecure network like Clinton’s, then the emails can be read without any encryption whatsoever for safety.

Ex-Hillary Clinton Staffer Who Set Up Email Server Plans to Plead the Fifth

A former Hillary Clinton staffer who helped set up the former secretary of state's private email server has vowed to invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions after a congressional committee subpoenaed him, MSNBC confirmed late Wednesday.

Bryan Pagliano, who worked for Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign and at the State Department, has been identified in digital records as the person who set up her email server in 2009.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi, which is investigating Clinton's emails, subpoenaed Pagliano last month to testify. But his lawyer said Monday that the IT specialist would refuse to answer questions, asserting his constitutional right against self-incrimination, The Washington Post first reported Wednesday.

24 Hard Facts About 9/11 That Cannot Be Debunked

9/11 has been one of the biggest events in recent history that sparked a mass awakening across the world. There has been much debate as to how it happened, who is responsible and why. To this day about 1/3 of americans do not believe the official story. In other areas of the world as much as 90% of the country does not believe the official story.

Here is a list of 24 facts that cannot be debunked about 9/11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a good collection of the facts in the 9-11 case (which we will go into in much more detail as we approach the anniversary) but this author has fallen for the propaganda trap of the "no plane at Pentagon" hoax, a "poison the well" piece of nonsense planted into the discussion to give the corporate media an easy handle to ridicule and dismiss the entire question of whether the official story is true or not.
