"We are ruled, though it may be difficult to imagine, by a small dynastic power structure, largely consisting of powerful banking families, such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and others. They emerged in controlling the financial system, extended their influence over the political system, the educational system, and, through the major foundations, have become the dominant social powers of our world, creating think tanks and other institutions which shape and change the course of society and modern human history." -- Andrew Gavin Marshall

A behind the scenes look at a failing Fox News Corp.: Caught on tape

A rare behind the scenes look at Fox News host Laura Ingraham as she deals with the failed ins and outs of the corporation’s production capabilities.

BILL CLINTON FLEW ON SEX OFFENDER JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ‘LOLITA EXPRESS’ PLANE 26 TIMES IN THREE YEARS

Bill Clinton spent enough time aboard disgraced Wall Street mogul Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ airplane that he should be eligible for frequent flyer miles, according to a shocking new report that reveals how often the former U.S. president road along with with the convicted sex offender. Flight logs reviewed by Fox News show Clinton took 26 trips aboard Epstein’s Boeing 727 jet, more than double the 11 flights previously known.

Flight Logs: Bill Clinton much morer on Sex-offender jet

Flight logs show Bill Clinton flew on sex offender's jet much more than previously known

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” -- even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

Roundup toxic to soil fungus at doses well below agricultural dilution

Microorganisms such as fungi are crucial to healthy soil. Since Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world, soil microorganisms in many areas will be exposed to it.

The new study was carried out as part of a participatory research project called Institutions-Citizens Partnership for Research and Innovation (PICRI). It was conducted by a team of researchers led by Christian Vélot, a lecturer and researcher in molecular genetics at the University Paris-Sud, France.

The team studied the effects of a commercial formulation of Roundup called GT Plus, containing 450 mg/L of glyphosate (the stated active ingredient).

The researchers concluded that the toxic effects of the glyphosate-based herbicide on soil filamentous fungi, and thus potential impairment of soil ecosystems, may occur at doses far below the recommended agricultural application rate.

Rothschild Bank Now Under Criminal Investigation Over Missing $4 Billion in Global Corruption Probe

By Jay Syrmopoulos

Last year the veil of invincibility seemingly came off the secretive Rothschild banking empire, as Baron David de Rothschild and his company the Rothschild Financial Services Group were indicted by French prosecutors for allegedly defrauding British pensioners in a scheme that saw large sums of money embezzled.

Only two months ago, we reported on the Swiss branch of the Edmond de Rothschild Group announcing that they were the target of a French criminal probe “regarding a business relationship managed by a former employee.”

Now, the Luxembourg unit of Rothschild banking empire is being investigated by the Luxembourg state prosecutors office — alleged to have sent hundreds of millions of dollars to an account at a bank in Luxembourg that originated from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)...

Russia Blames ‘Foreign Interference’ for Brazil Coup

The Russian Foreign Ministry spoke out Wednesday against the efforts to oust Rousseff, pinning the move on “foreign interference.”

“For Russia, Brazil is an important foreign partner in Latin America and the world,” added Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova.

Russia and Brazil have an important relationship and are members of the influential BRICS group.

A 2015 document, reported in various Russian news agencies, addressed the possibility of U.S. intelligence agency involvement in the parliamentary coup against President Dilma Rousseff. “It is quite possible that the CIA is involved in the plan to stage riots in Brazil nationwide,” the Russian news outlets said in a 2015 report.

BEX ALERT - DNC Chairwoman Schultz claims Clinton ‘not the target’ of FBI probe

Even in the face of the FBI boss scoffing at Hillary Clinton’s description of the “investigation” into her email practices as a “security inquiry,” the head of the Democratic Party is now insisting the front-running Democratic presidential candidate isn’t even a focus of the probe.

“Secretary Clinton isn’t even a target of this inquiry, investigation, whatever ‘I’ word you want to use,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told Fox News on Friday.

Asked to back up her statement, Schultz said she’s “repeatedly been told that” – though she did not say who might have told her.

WikiLeaks Exposes Newly “Selected” Brazilian President as Puppet for US Intelligence

By Jay Syrmopoulos

The transparency organization WikiLeaks has exposed acting President Michel Temer, who ascended to the Brazilian presidency after a soft coup deposed President Rousseff, as having been an intelligence informant for the United States.

Temer, who has served as Brazil’s vice president since 2011, took power Thursday after Brazil’s parliament suspended Rousseff pending the results of impeachment proceedings.

The cables — marked “sensitive but unclassified” — contained summaries of conversations Temer, a Brazilian federal lawmaker at the time, had with the U.S. intelligence officials...

Dilma out: Brazilian plutocracy sets 54mn votes on fire

Never in modern political history has it been so easy to “abolish the people” and simply erase 54 million votes cast in a free and fair presidential election.
Forget about hanging chads, as in Florida 2000. This is a day that will live in infamy all across the Global South – when what was one of its most dynamic democracies veered into a plutocratic regime, under a flimsy parliamentary/judicial veneer, with legal and constitutional guarantees now at the mercy of lowly comprador elites.

After the proverbial marathon, the Brazilian Senate voted 55-22 to put President Dilma Rousseff on trial for “crimes of responsibility” – related to alleged window dressing of the government’s budget.

Ex-PM Edward Heath child sex abuse claims to be investigated despite cost concerns

Police have announced they will continue to investigate allegations of child sex abuse by late Prime Minister Edward Heath, despite MPs raising concerns about the cost of the inquiry.

Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Mike Veile confirmed the investigation is ongoing and said he is content with the scope of the inquiry.

In a separate revelation, the police watchdog has found no evidence Wiltshire cops covered up alleged abuse by Heath in the 1990s.

In a letter to the Home Affairs Select Committee (HASC), Veile said the investigation’s priority is to identify and safeguard children and vulnerable adults who may still be at risk.

Frosts and freezes galore for Michigan in coming days

A colder-than-normal pattern is going to dominate Michigan's weather through Wednesday of next week. This could lead to several mornings in a row with frost or freezing temperatures.

Frost normally occurs when the official thermometers drop below 35 degrees. You probably are wondering how ice can form at that temperature. The thermometers are at 6 feet above ground. Cold air sinks. If the thermometer reads 35 degrees, the ground temperature could be 32 degrees.

So when you look through the maps above, be concerned about your location having frost at temperatures of 35 degrees or colder.

Partially paralysed man with part of his head missing told he is 'fit for work' by government

A partially paralysed man with part of his head missing has been told he is fit for work by the government.

Kenny Bailey, who is waiting to have a metal plate inserted to reshape his skull and protect his brain, had his benefits slashed this week.

The father of two suffered a massive stroke, leaving him paralysed down one side of his body, and with severe memory problems.

An ambulance was delayed in getting to him, with a third of his skull removed to ease pressure on his brain.

But the Dept of Work Pensions cut his employment and support allowance - which he uses to pay his bills - following a medical examination.

He has lost £156 per fortnight, and will get £470 every four weeks, his Personal Independent Payment.

Clinton Charity Aided Clinton Friends

The Clinton Global Initiative, which arranges donations to help solve the world’s problems, set up a financial commitment that benefited a for-profit company part-owned by people with ties to the Clintons, including a current and a former Democratic official and a close friend of former President Bill Clinton.

The $2 million commitment was placed on the agenda for a September 2010 conference of the Clinton Global Initiative at Mr. Clinton’s urging, according to a document from the period and people familiar with the matter.

Mr. Clinton also personally endorsed the company, Energy Pioneer Solutions Inc., to then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu for a federal grant that year, said people with knowledge of the endorsement.

The Clintons reportedly used their charity to give $2 million to friends' company

One of the Clinton Global Initiative's latest donations reportedly went to helping out Bill and Hillary Clinton's friends, The Wall Street Journal reports. While the charitable organization usually aims to give money to charities and nongovernmental organizations to serve its mission of helping to solve the world's problems, in September 2010, the tax-exempt charity committed $2 million to Energy Pioneer Solutions, Inc., a for-profit organization. The company, which is committed to delivering "energy savings to communities in rural America," also happens to be partly owned by people with close ties to the Clintons, The Wall Street Journal notes, including "a current and former Democratic official and a close friend of former President Bill Clinton."

Adelson Calls for Party Unity

Adelson Calls for Party Unity – and Lots of Money – For Trump
The billionaire says GOP elites must respect the voters, and fear a Clinton presidency.

***
"Trump has created a movement in this country that cannot be denied," Adelson wrote. "Republicans have the candidate who the people decided is our winner from a field of 17 viable contenders. It's time for all Republicans to mount up and back our nominee."
***
Last week, Adelson, who is staunchly pro-Israel, told The New York Times he believed Trump "will be good for Israel." The comment was a surprising vote of confidence given that the Republican Jewish Coalition – a group on whose board of directors Adelson sits – had emphasized holding GOP majorities in the Senate and House this election cycle rather than offering its full-throated support to Trump.

Obama warns Russia against military build-up in N Europe

US President Barack Obama has warned Russia against its “aggressive” military build-up in northern Europe.

Obama made the remarks on Friday after meeting with Nordic leaders from Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark at the White House.

"We are united in our concern about Russia's growing aggressive military presence and posture in the Baltic-Nordic region,” he said.

Earlier, Obama said the US and Nordic countries agreed on the need for a peaceful European order.

"We believe that our citizens have the right to live in freedom and security, free from terrorism, and a Europe where smaller nations are not bullied by larger nations,” he said.

However, Obama said Washington would be prepared to counter any perceived Russian aggression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it is official: President Obama has officially lost his reality licence.

WHAT Russian "military aggression" is this man talking about; has he gone barking mad, with the massive NATO buildup on Russia's borders, and the massive exercises being done in Eastern Europe?!?

US Congress Wants New Federal Agency to Fight Russian, Chinese 'Propaganda'

A dozen members of the US House of Representatives have introduced a new bill proposing the creation of an entire agency meant to 'counter Chinese and Russian propaganda', The Washington Examiner reported.

The 'Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act', the political news publication explained, would create a new federal agency reporting to the State Department called the Center for Information Analysis and Response.

The center, The Washington Examiner added, "would analyze 'government information warfare' and 'disinformation efforts', and work to 'expose and counter' those operations when they are directed against US national security."

The legislation, a bipartisan effort coauthored by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, claims that Russia and China are "us[ing] disinformation and other propaganda tools" to undermine US initiatives around the globe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu; sometimes, because of how intensely badly US Government sanctioned US propaganda is skewed, and the narrative misshapen, it is damn near impossible to get a sense of what is really going on in the world without reading the foreign press in English.

That is why I will continue to read outlets like sputnknews.com; RT.com; presstv.com; farsnews.com; atimes.com; tass.com; and globalresearch.ca.

This is because I know when members of the US government are lying; they open their mouths....and words come out of them!! Sorry gentlemen; we've caught you and your colleagues in so many lies that we just cannot listen anymore; please do not blame Russia and China for the lack of credibility you have created for yourselves by lying to the American people.

Intelligent, rational, informed people make up the backbone of an intelligent, rational, and civilized society; it appears that this is absolutely NOT the outcome the US government wants for its people, hence, the introduction of Common Core, and its assassination of rational, critical thinking in this country, through Common Core's alleged educational process.

And I have a novel idea for both of you gentlemen; start telling the truth to the American people; start fixing the problems which desperately need to be fixed in this country, including repairing an infrastructure which is falling apart at the seams.

Start taking care of We the People, as opposed to the US government's military and financial enabling of Israel against its neighbors, with whom it categorically cannot get along.

Start taking care of our Veterans, who deserve the top medical and psychological care; they have earned it.

Start resolving this country's geopolitical differences by negotiating in good faith with other countries, and create win/win situations around the globe.

Throw out the Federal Reserve, which is no more Federal than is Federal Express, and create money which is a public utility, rather than a loan at interest.

Start holding vaccine and pharmaceutical companies responsible for the damage they create.

Oh, and one last thing; should you get re-elected, make it mandatory for all Congressional Representatives to place their incomes and investments into a blind trust, just as the President is required to do; that will take some of the dirty corporate money out of politics.

Ready to do any and all of that?!?!? Because until you are, you are not worthy of any credibility whatsoever.

Colorado "sugar babies" use online dating to cover soaring tuition

After taking her on a shopping spree at Cherry Creek mall, the 62-year-old man sporting a gray suit bought a Starbucks cake pop for Vanessa, 23, and left the mall alone.

Vanessa, who did not want her full name used for privacy reasons, describes herself as a "sugar baby" — part of a growing population of primarily college women who are turning to men of means to make ends meet amid soaring expenses. The arrangement is nothing new, but increasing tuition and student-loan debt paired with the ease of joining a site that facilitates these relationships are contributing to an increase of Colorado sugar baby relationships.

"I was picking up shifts left and right," said Vanessa, whose two steady sugar daddies ensure her nursing school externships don't overwhelm her. "With the sugar daddies' help, I've been able to cut down on that to focus on school."

Spring Exacerbation: NATO Drills on Russia’s Borders a Preparation for War?

It seems that almost every other day NATO begins a new military drill somewhere around the world, and almost half of them are on Russia’s borders. The Alliance has used the Ukrainian crisis to build up its military presence in Russia’s immediate proximity, and Russian military call it as they see it: NATO is getting ready for war.

NATO has just kicked off its Exercise Noble Partner 2016 at Georgia’s Vaziani Training Area, which will last until May 26.

There are two more simultaneous military exercises on the territories of the former USSR republic going on right now.

The 6,000-strong Spring Storm in Estonia, which will last until May 19 includes Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany having sent company-sized units to take part in the exercise.

“Inevitable Taxpayer-Funded Bailout” As Angry Teamsters Watch Their Pensions Go Bankrupt

Over the past few months, we have covered the unfolding saga (here and here) of the Central States Pension Fund, which handles retirement benefits for current and former Teamster union truck drivers across various states including Texas, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, New York, and Minnesota, and is one of the largest pension funds in the nation, all the way through Kenneth Feinberg’s rejection of the proposal to cut benefits on behalf of the Treasury.

When the proposal was rejected, we said that the final resolution will be in the form of an inevitable taxpayer-funded bailout

If the Treasury won’t allow any pension cuts, and the government created safety net won’t be there to keep the benefits flowing, how will the cash continue to flow to members? With the precedent now set by the Treasury that no cuts will be allowed, the answer will likely come in the form of a massive bailout.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; just how many more "bailouts", on the backs of American taxpayers, will it take to get Americans angry enough to give every member of Congress a permanent pink slip, guaranteeing things like pension funds are scrupulously regulated, and cannot be stolen from?!?

CEI Defeats RICO-20 Ringleader Shukla In FOIA Lawsuit – Emails to be made public

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) prevailed in a Virginia Freedom of Information Act (VFOIA) lawsuit against George Mason University (GMU). The VFOIA request sought public records showing how the “RICO-20” group of academics, using public funding, organized their call for a federal racketeering investigation of “corporations and other entities” who disagreed with them on climate policy.

The judge ruled for CEI on all counts in an April 22 ruling in Christopher Horner and CEI v. George Mason University that the court released today. The ruling concluded that by leaving it to faculty who simply told the school’s FOIA officer they had no responsive records, GMU failed to conduct an adequate search; the judge also ruled that documents including emails from GMU Professor Ed Maibach must be released to CEI.

Another US-Sponsored Coup? Brazil's New President Was An Embassy Informant For US Intelligence

As it turns out, the Temer presidency may be nothing more than the latest manifestation of the US state department's implementation of yet another puppet government. We know this because earlier today, Wikileaks released evidence via a declassified cable that Brazil's new interim president was an embassy informant for US intelligence and military.

As a reminder, the last time the US instituted a puppet government, was in 2014 when in yet another "bloodless coup", the president of Ukraine was overthrown and replaced with a billionaire oligarch, a scenario comparable to the one in Brazil.

We don't have to remind readers that as a result of the Ukraine coup, relations between the US and Russia are multi-decade lows, the cold war is back and - as of yesterday, so is the nuclear arms race. We are curious what the consequence of yet another US state coup will be, this time in Latin America's largest country.

Report: Wendy’s to Roll Out Self-Serve Kiosks by End of 2016, as Wage Increases Squeeze Fast Food Companies

Wendy’s fast food restaurant chain says it will begin offering self-serve kiosks at its 6,000-plus locations across America, making them available to costumers by the end of 2016.

The fast food giant’s decision to move toward automation comes just as “Fight for $15”–a progressive protest movement, pushing minimum wage hikes–is applying pressure on state governments to raise wages for low-skilled fast food workers.

Last August, Wendy’s CFO Todd Penegor told investors that mandated wage hikes will cause his company to pursue other innovative avenues that could lead to fewer jobs for low-skill workers.

“We continue to look at initiatives and how we work to offset any impacts of future wage inflation through technology initiatives, whether that’s customer self-order kiosks, whether that’s automating more in the back of the house in the restaurant,” Penegor said, adding that “you’ll see a lot more coming on that front later this year from us.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the "Fight for $15" folks didn't see this coming, as the only reasonable response from corporations employing low-skilled workers, absolutely amazes me.

Detroit, Deprived of Life Sustaining Water: UN Investigates Human Rights Violations

Usually crimes against humanity take place behind closed doors, in concentration camps, Abu Ghraib-like torture settings or Nazi Germany; not so in 83% Black Detroit, Michigan. In the next few weeks, the international community will witness with eyes wide open the city of Detroit’s blatant violations of human rights. These crimes will be condoned and executed by Detroit officials with the full knowledge of the White House.

Access to water is considered a human right and access to safe and clean water is a core mission of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), however, 40% of the residents of Detroit will be deprived of the basic element of life: water. Children will go to school without baths and senior citizens will be deprived of water to take medicine. Having lost confidence in a US national commitment to saving the lives of citizens, advocacy groups have begun to petition the United Nations for an emergency response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight; access to clean water for Detroit citizens has become so awful that the UN has had to be brought in to investigate this issue?!?

EVIDENCE APPEARED THAT SOROS funded protests in Republic o Serbska

On social networks in the Republic of Serbska can be found information about who and how financed opposition in the Serbian Republic, which calls for protests in Banja Luka and the coup.

Open Society Fund of George Soros, who was recently banned in the Russian Federation, as a direct interference in the internal political affairs, is the main financier of the opposition leaders in the Republic of Serbska.

The list Soros scholarship recipients are: Slavko Vu?urevi?, mayor of Trebinje, Darko Babalj, SDS deputy in the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mladen Bosic, SDS deputy, mayor of Doboj, Obren Petrovic, Dragan Cavic, the leader of the opposition NDP.
The data clearly indicate that the issue of national interest, on the Republic of Serbska salaries in dollars, and that the operation of the Soros Foundation has always been directed at the propaganda against the Serbian people, destabilizing the Balkans and fragmentation of Serbian territory.

According to Allan, Ken Starr's lead investigator, a guy named Gonzales, quit after signing a deposition stating he saw 2 photo's of Foster with marks on his neck and park police said they saw no blood splatters anywhere around in the grass, leaves, etc. It's an interview worth the listen I think.

US Army Chaplain Submits Resignation Over Drone Warfare

A Unitarian Universalist Church minister and U.S. Army chaplain who served in Afghanistan has submitted his resignation in protest over the military's use of drone warfare and decision to place nuclear warheads on air-launched cruise missiles.

In an April 12 letter to President Barack Obama, Rev. Christopher John Antal of New York said the White House "continues to claim the right to kill anyone, anywhere on earth, at any time, for secret reasons, based on secret evidence, in a secret process, undertaken by unidentified officials. I refuse to support this policy of unaccountable killing."

Antal's position on drone killings isn't new -- he condemned it during a sermon to troops and civilian contractors in 2012 in Kandahar, where he was a battalion chaplain.

That led to his unrequested departure from Afghanistan, a do-not-promote recommendation and a separation from the Army that was overturned only after a congressional inquiry, he told Military.com on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have 4 words for Pastor Antal: God bless you, sir!!

Unfortunately, Pastors who make moral decisions on moral grounds not to the US government's or corporation's liking, quickly find themselves out of their positions as chaplains.

I think that Pastor Antal had his "Buddha on the Road moment", and came to the awareness that these endless wars, and the price paid for them in blood and money, are primarily, and ultimately, about corporate private profit, and not for "freedom", or "preserving the American way of life".

No apology, no rebate! Chelsea Clinton's contemptuous husband Marc Mezvinsky has ‘nothing to say’ to his investors (some Hillary contributors) despite losing 90 percent of their millions

Chelsea Clinton's hedge fund boss husband has refused to apologize to investors - despite losing nearly $25 million in a calamitous gamble on the Greek economy.

Marc Mezvinsky, 38, persuaded clients to pour cash into the struggling European country in the hope it would bounce back and deliver massive profits. But after buying up government debt and bank stock, the dramatic upturn he and his partners predicted failed to materialize and the fund's value plunged by an estimated 90 percent.

Mezvinsky and former Goldman Sachs colleagues Bennett Grau and Mark Mallon are reported to have finally pulled the plug on the failed investment last month.

US PUTS BOOTS ON THE GROUND IN YEMEN

Wait for it… the US has now entered another war in the Middle East. Not content with only having US military involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria, the US just sent forces into Yemen.

The war in Yemen was already being waged with US weapons, including mostly-banned cluster bombs via Saudi Arabia, but now American special forces of an undisclosed number are going to participate in combat operations. The Saudis have been widely condemned for using those US weapons and other US military equipment on civilian areas and locations such as schools and hospitals.

The Pentagon says the special forces in Yemen will serve in advisory capacity, but for how long is unknown. Department of Defense spokesman Peter Cook admitted there is no exit strategy: “It’s going to be a limited period of time, but I don’t have a particular deadline.”

ISRAELI COURT CONVICTS PALESTINIAN CHILD WHO WAS NEARLY BEATEN TO DEATH BY MOB

A Palestinian child, Ahmad Manasra, 14, was convicted Tuesday of two counts of attempted murder, despite a lack of evidence, a video showing him being severely beaten and insulted by a crowd shouting racial slurs, and video showing Israeli interrogators brutalizing and intimidating the crying child with no family member or lawyer present.

Manasra was 13 at the time of his arrest, and the Israeli court decided to allow the prosecution’s request to delay his court hearing until January, when he turned 14 and was allowed, under Israeli law, to be tried as an adult. The Israeli Knesset used Manasra’s case as an example when they voted several months ago to change the age at which a Palestinian child can be tried as an adult from 14 to 12.

Israeli children, in contrast, are considered ‘minors’ until the age of 18.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to Israeli "justice" for Palestinian children; trumped up charges against a Palestinian kid who was beaten, brutalized, and intimidated, with no family member or lawyer present.

There are no real rules, just convictions, and long jail sentences; this is done to instill in the Palestinian community as a whole a sense of learned helplessness, and that true justice will never be theirs.

Israel, the "only democracy in the Middle East", MY ASTROLABE!!!

Leaked Facebook Training Manual Confirms Allegations Of Conservative News Suppression

A report published in the Guardian today includes a training document for Facebook editors that outlines how they should curate the "trending" headlines tool.

Instructions in the documents appear to contradict Facebook's earlier denials of a Gizmodo article that said Facebook editors directly inserted headlines into the trending news widget. It also contradicts what Facebook told Recode last summer.

The guidelines obtained by the Guardian additionally show that editors must select trending news topics from a list of 10 "trusted" news sources that include the New York Times, BBC News, CNN and Fox News. This is likely to make people who are upset about alleged anti-conservative bias that Gizmodo reported on even madder; Fox News looks like the only right-wing outlet on the list.

Hillary’s Latest Scandal: She And Bill Siphoned $100 Mil From Mideast Leaders

A new investigation reveals that Bill and Hillary Clinton took in at least $100 million from Middle East leaders. Can such a financially and ethically compromised candidate truly function as our nation’s leader?

The investigation by the Daily Caller News Foundation has uncovered a disturbing pattern of the Clintons’ raising money for the Clinton Foundation from regimes that have checkered records on human rights and that aren’t always operating in the best interests of the U.S. By the way, the $100 million we mentioned above doesn’t appear to include another $30 million given to the Clintons by two Mideast-based foundations and four billionaire Saudis.

All told, it’s a lot of money.

YOUNG WOMAN'S OVARIES DESTROYED BY GARDASIL: MERCK 'FORGOT TO RESEARCH' EFFECTS OF VACCINE ON FEMALE REPRODUCTION

A newly-published study has revealed that Merck & Co., the corporate mastermind behind the infamous Gardasil vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV), conveniently forgot to research the effects of this deadly vaccine on women's reproductive systems. And at least one young woman, in this case from Australia, bore the brunt of this inexcusable failure after discovering that her own ovaries had been completely destroyed as a result of getting the vaccine.

Published in the peer-reviewed British Medical Journal (BMJ), the harrowing recount of this young 16-year-old girl's experience should give pause to all parents currently being pressured by their doctors into having their young daughters jabbed with Gardasil. Robbed of her natural ability to experience full womanhood, this young woman experienced early menopause, in which her ovaries completely shut down before they were even able to fully develop.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Men do not get cervical cancer, because their anatomy has no cervix; so why the hell was there no testing on female animals' ovaries?!?

Did people at the highest corporate level know there was something wrong, that this vaccine could destroy women's ability to have children, and decide, invoking "profit uber alles", to simply sweep the damning evidence under the rug?!?

If you are getting pressure from your girls' schools or doctors, to have your daughters vaccinated with this vaccine, hand them this article, and say, NO, under absolutely no circumstances, will you have your daughter vaccinated.

Someone - if not several people - responsible for the introduction of this vaccine from Merck & Company should be doing hard time in jail because of this chemical's wretched track track record, in terms of irreversible side effects, as well as this.

Underage sex scandal rocks Oakland Police Department

An internal affairs investigation is underway focusing on several Oakland police officers who allegedly had sex with an underage girl.

Sources told CBS Station KPIX the internal affairs investigation centers around a young woman who recently began revealing details of her relationships with officers on her Facebook page.

The woman, now either 18 or 19 years old, is believed to have had sex with potentially dozens of police officers beginning when she was 16. Such acts would be a crime under the state's statutory rape laws.

On her Facebook page, Celeste Guap suggests she is involved in the sex scandal, but says she never snitched on anybody, only having "harmless relationships" within the police department.

In one post decorated with emojis of a police officer and a wink, she writes, "Calls me his Ms. Undercover ... that's cuz we always underdcover."

FBI DOESN'T WANT PRIVACY LAWS TO APPLY TO ITS BIOMETRIC DATABASE

The FBI has been building a massive biometric database for the last eight years. The Next Generation Identification System (NGIS) starts with millions of photos of criminals (and non-criminals) and builds from there. Palm prints, fingerprints, iris scans, tattoos and biographies are all part of the mix.

Despite having promised to deliver a Privacy Impact Assessment of the database back in 2012, the FBI's system went livetowards the end of 2014 without one. That's a big problem, considering the database's blend of guilty/innocent Americans, along with its troublesome error rate. The FBI obviously hopes the false positive rate will continue to decline as tech capabilities improve, but any qualms about bogus hits have been placed on the back burner while the agency dumps every piece of data it can find into the database.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Simply said, the FBI wants total privacy for itself, no matter how compromised, or just plain wrong, the data they have may be, but absolutely zero privacy and transparency for We the People; it believes itself to be absolutely above the law here.

SWIFT SAYS SECOND BANK HIT BY MALWARE ATTACK

SWIFT, the global financial messaging network that banks use to move billions of dollars every day, warned on Thursday of a second malware attack similar to the one that led to February's $81 million cyberheist at the Bangladesh central bank.

The second case targeted a commercial bank, SWIFT spokeswoman Natasha de Teran said, without naming it.

SWIFT said in a statement that the attackers exhibited a "deep and sophisticated knowledge of specific operational controls" at targeted banks and may have been aided by "malicious insiders or cyber attacks, or a combination of both."

The organisation, a Belgian co-operative owned by member banks, said that forensic experts believe the second case showed that the Bangladesh heist "was not a single occurrence, but part of a wider and highly adaptive campaign targeting banks."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder if the US and the world is being "groomed" for a "cyber 9/11", with these attacks.

Federal judge rules Obamacare is being funded unconstitutionally

House Republicans won Round 2 in a potentially historic lawsuit Thursday when a federal judge declared the Obama administration was unconstitutionally spending money to subsidize health insurers without obtaining an appropriation from Congress.

Last year, U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer broke new ground by ruling the GOP-controlled House of Representatives had legal standing to sue the president over how he was enforcing his signature healthcare law.

On Thursday, she ruled the administration is violating a provision of the law by paying promised reimbursements to health insurers who provide coverage at reduced costs to low-income Americans.

The judge's ruling, while a setback for the administration, was put on hold immediately and stands a good chance of being overturned on appeal.

But the 38-page opinion highlights the repeated complaint from Republicans that Obama and his administration have ignored constitutional limits on their authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will probably go all the way up to the Supreme Court, if they chose to hear it; but the question is, will the 9th Justice be installed, to replace Justice Scalia, or will it be a divide between the current 8 Justices?!?

Anatomy Of A Propaganda Blitz. “Demonization and Destruction of Establishment Enemies”

We live in a time when state-corporate interests are cooperating to produce propaganda blitzes intended to raise public support for the demonisation and destruction of establishment enemies.

Below, we will examine five key components of an effective propaganda campaign of this kind.

1: Dramatic New Evidence

A propaganda blitz is often launched on the back of 'dramatic new evidence' signifying that an establishment enemy should be viewed as uniquely despicable and targeted with 'action'.

The Blair government's infamous September 2002 dossier on Iraqi WMD contained four mentions of the claim that Iraq was able to deploy WMD against British citizens within 45 minutes of an order being given. But senior intelligence officials revealed that the original 45-minutes claim referred to the length of time it might have taken the Iraqis to fuel and fire a Scud missile or rocket launcher. The original intelligence said nothing about whether Iraq possessed the chemical or biological weapons to use in these weapons.

Friday The 13th and The Knights Templar

Philip IV borrowed enormous sums of money to finance a war with England. A poor king and an even worse military commander, Philip was easily defeated. He saw a way of both currying favor with the Pope and eliminating his huge debt. On that fateful day of Friday, October 13, 1307 he ordered all Templars arrested and their property seized. The Grandmaster of the order, Jacques DeMolay was thrown in prison along with several other high-ranking members of the order.

Their ‘trial’ was a farce. The Templars were charged with heresy, worshiping false idols and other crimes against the church. Many of them were tortured until they ‘confessed’ to their crimes. Refusing to capitulate, Jacques DeMolay would not confess and Philip ordered him burned at the stake. In 2007 the Vatican issued a proclamation declaring the Templars innocent of their alleged crimes.

Obama Tried To Confiscate Disabled Vet’s Guns, Then THIS Happened

President Obama has said time and again that his greatest disappointment was that he was unable to enact new gun control legislation to further restrict the right of American citizens to keep and bear arms. In an effort to do an end run around Congress and enact some of that legislation, the Obama administration enacted some new policies that would make it impossible for some disabled vets to purchase guns and might even lead to their existing firearms being confiscated. That very nightmare scenario — the VA forcibly confiscating the firearms of a disabled veteran — almost happened in Idaho yesterday, but the VA was stopped in its tracks by a grassroots group of local residents. And the sheriff. And some politicians. All of whom stood on the man’s front yard to prevent the confiscation.
