DEA PROMISED TSA AGENT A CUT OF PASSENGERS’ SEIZABLE CASH

An “investigative summary” posted this month by the Justice Department’s inspector general criticizes the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for hiring a federal airport security screener to help find seizable cash in passengers’ luggage. Under the arrangement, the DEA designated the screener a “confidential source” and promised him a cut of any money he found while rummaging through people’s bags…

STUDY: FOOD PACKAGING CAN CONTRIBUTE TO OBESITY

Most food products are now packaged in plastic. German researchers have now shown that plasticisers can enter the body, disrupt hormone production, and cause people to gain weight. EurActiv Germany reports. Plasticisers are added to food packaging, cables and various other products in order to make them more flexible and easier to handle. Otherwise known as phthalates, plasticisers are controversial because they can enter the body through the skin or in food, where they can disrupt hormone production.

How Hillary Got Classified Information Onto Her Private Email

Hillary Clinton’s acolytes are racing to dismiss the latest allegations that classified material was cut and pasted into her emails, but this isn’t some mere oversight that can be hand-waved away with a shrug and a sad trombone honk. One doesn’t spill classified material into an unclassified system accidentally or through mere negligence. What these new revelations show—if they are true—is conduct that was conscious, intentional, and felonious as all get-out.

Davos Insider Vows Trump Defeat: “It Doesn’t Matter Who the GOP Puts Up, Hillary Will Win”

Voice of the people be damned.

With a week until the Iowa caucuses, it would appear that the fix is in – at least if you take the words of some of the world’s most elite to heart.

His name is Martin Sorrell, a British citizen and head of WPP, quite possibly the single most influential and prominent marketing firm in the world with decades-old ties to the most elite of the elite. Here is what Mr. Sorrell had to say regarding Donald Trump just days ago:

China Warns "Social Stability Threatened" As 400,000 Steel Workers Are About To Lose Their Jobs

Fast forward to today when, if not a full million, Xinhua reports that as part of China's proposed excess capacity production curtailments the country's steel production slash will translate into the loss of jobs for up to 400,000 workers, estimated Li Xinchuang, head of China Metallurgical Industry Planning and Research Institute. Li said more people will be affected in the upstream and downstream industries. According to some estimates just like every banker job in New York "feeds" up to three downstream jobs, so in China every worker in the steel industry helps support between 2 to 3 additional job.s Which means, 400,000 primary layoffs would mean a total job loss number anywhere between 1.2 and 1.6 million jobs!

Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore

As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge–a whole lot more–and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

As you may or may not know, Intellihub reported on Jan. 4, that the Hammond’s ranch and other ranch-lands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government, but foreign entities as well.

However, at the time of the article’s publication the federal government’s full motive to seize the land was not yet known other than the fact that these elements do exist in the vicinity and are invaluable.

Now, after further investigation, more pieces of the puzzle have been put in place and you’re not going to believe what characters are involved.

Scotland Yard detective: I was told to ignore 'meat rack' VIPs during paedophile probe  

A Scotland Yard detective claims he was told to ignore VIPs during a paedophile probe now being investigated by the police watchdog.

Who Poisoned Flint, Michigan?

By the fall of 2015, news began coming out of Flint about undrinkable water, kids getting sick and a stonewalling state government. I headed back to Flint for a week. I saw orange water running from a hydrant. I read FOIA'd e-mails that prove the city and state decided not to chemically treat Flint's water, something required in every town, village and city in America. There was the woman whose water tested for lead at a toxic-waste level. This was after officials told her she was nuts, even though her daughter lost chunks of her hair in the shower, while her four-year-old son remained dangerously underweight and his skin became covered in red splotches any time it was exposed to the water. And I met a pediatrician who discovered that the lead levels of kids under five in Flint were dangerously elevated. She became physically ill when a state official called her deluded.

Leaked Emails: Gov Officials Mocked Flint Residents Who Complained About Water

Once the truth was impossible to ignore, Governor Rick Snyder was quick to apologize and asked FEMA to distribute clean water to Flint. In an effort to provide transparency, the governor released 295 pages of emails related to the crisis, (some of them redacted) which don’t paint a pretty for the state government.

The emails reveal that government officials were completely dismissive of the countless complaints that were made against the tap water. Members of Snyder’s administration mocked residents who complained, saying that they were merely whining about the “aesthetics” of the water and played off their concerns as “initial hiccups.” The governor’s chief of staff said in one email “I can’t figure out why the state is responsible except that [State Treasurer] Dillon did make the ultimate decision so we’re not able to avoid the subject.”

Obama Announces $1 Billion to 13 States to Build “Climate Resilient Communities” and Gets Told Off on Twitter

At this point, the money printing machine must be close to a meltdown. The national debt has jumped by an astounding $8 trillion dollars since Obama took office, and the tab is now projected to be $20 trillion by the time he leaves.

Twenty trillion. That’ll mean America’s national debt nearly doubled under his presidency.

So you can probably imagine the majority of people’s surprise and dismay when the White House announced a new billion dollars going to “help build more climate resilient communities”.

Explorer Henry Worsley dies in Antarctic crossing

In that last broadcast, sent from Antarctica on Friday, he told supporters: "When my hero, Ernest Shackleton, was 97 miles from the South Pole on the morning of January the 9th 1909, he said he'd shot his bolt.

"Well today I have to inform you with some sadness that I too have shot my bolt."

HILLARY THE SPY?

Easy means of delivering secrets using the weak private email server. Easy means of accepting payment through a "charitable" foundation!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

Is this the reason Bryan Pagliano, who set up Hillary Clintojn's email server, pled the Fifth Amendment when questioned by Congress?

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

Headwinds for Hillary—she’s toast

This week, the Intelligence Community Inspector General sent a letter to lawmakers disclosing Mrs. Clinton’s private server contained 24 “special access program” (SAP) emails. Those emails are so secret that only a handful of high-ranking officials, including the president, are allowed to view them. The emails in question are so secret it even required the Obama-appointed Inspector General (IG) Charles McCullough to obtain special security clearances to review them. In a January 14 letter to the Senate Intelligence and Foreign Relations committees, the IG said he found a number of those top, top secret SAPs.

Title 50 of the US Code Section 435, entitled War and National Defense, mandates "... (establishment of) a specific class of classified information that imposes safeguarding and access requirements that exceed those normally required for information at the same classification level.”

Judge Napolitano: Case Against Hillary 'Overwhelming, Damning and, from Her Perspective, Grave'

Reacting to the latest bombshell revelations about Hillary Clinton's email arrangement, Judge Andrew Napolitano said on The Kelly File Wednesday night that Clinton should be lawyering up, because "the case against her is overwhelming, damning and, from her perspective, grave."

Mrs. Clinton, on the other hand, continues to insist that the latest allegations about her emails while secretary of State change “nothing." During a Wednesday interview with NPR, she said, “I'm just going to leave it up to the professionals at the Justice Department, because nothing that this says changes the fact that I never sent or received material marked classified.”

Intelligence Official Says Some of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Were ‘More Than Top Secret’

With a potential prosecution looming, liberal and Democratic voters inclined toward Clinton have to ask themselves whether they want to risk losing the 2016 presidential election because of a loss of public confidence that could come with the indictment of their candidate.

Hillary Clinton’s Email Contained Intelligence From Human Spying

At least one email from Hillary Clinton’s private, unsecured email account that she used during her tenure as secretary of State contained information gathered from human spying, Fox News reported.

The information contained in the email was classified as “HCS-O,” an intelligence agency code for human spy operations on the ground or “HUMINT Control System Operations,” according to two unnamed sources familiar with the investigation.

It’s not yet clear whether the information contained in Clinton’s email exposed personally identifiable information about the sources.

Good News, World! You Can Stop Worrying About the South China Sea!

I guess it’s understandable. A more accurate characterization of the South China Sea as “a useful but not indispensable waterway for world shipping whose commercial importance, when properly exaggerated, provides a pretext for the United States to meddle in Southeast Asian affairs at the PRC’s expense” is excessively verbose and fails to convey a sense of urgency.

The kicker, of course, is that the lion’s share of the $5 trillion is China trade, and most of the balance passes through the South China Sea by choice and not by necessity.

In other words, the only major power with a vital strategic interest in Freedom of Navigation in the South China Sea is the People’s Republic of China. And the powers actually interested in impeding Freedom of Navigation down there are…pretty much everybody else, led by the United States.

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WANTS TO HELP COPS SPY ON “LARGE-SCALE COMPUTER NETWORKS”

Police departments have long used devices called Cellebrites to extract the contents of smartphones, a once straightforward process made complicated by Apple’s decision in 2014 to encrypt by default all iPhones running iOS 8 or later. (Cellebrite’s website boasts that it can unlock many devices running iOS 8, but doesn’t say it can break into the latest hardware models of the iPhone.) As long as those devices are protected by a password, law enforcement cannot decrypt information on the phones unless they can brute force hack them open. The NIJ grant asking for “innovative means for collecting digital evidence from mobile devices” may be oriented toward making brute force solutions available to police departments that don’t have the code-cracking resources of say, the NSA.

COPS LOCK MAN IN SCALDING SHOWER UNTIL HIS SKIN ‘SHRIVELED OFF’ & HE DIED – DEATH RULED ‘ACCIDENTAL’

In 2012, a 50-year-old mentally ill prison inmate named Darren Rainey died while locked in a scalding hot shower, rigged to inflict retribution on prisoners, by guards at Dade Correctional Institution. Guards put the schizophrenic man in the shower as punishment for defecating in his cell. Instead of getting Rainey the help that he obviously needed, guards took it upon themselves to inflict torturous punishment for hours. When guards finally checked on prisoner 060954, he was on his back and dead. According to the original documents involving his death, investigators noted that he’d been left in the hot steam for so long that his skin had shriveled from his body, a condition referred to as slippage.

Despite Decades of Stealth, Sticking Points Bedevil F-35 Jet

By the time the F-35 program is fully up and running — with an American fleet of more than 2,400 planes planned by the late 2030s — projected total costs will exceed $1 trillion. One billion dollars will be needed just to pay for the highly advanced pilot helmets, running to $400,000 apiece. And though champions of the supersonic F-35 hail it as the ultimate sky fighter for the 21st century, skeptics ask if it is worth all the money and effort, or even if it will prove as effective in its mission as David’s little stone was in its day.

To put it mildly, the Joint Strike Fighter is a complex piece of machinery. History suggests that the more intricate a device is, the more ways there are for things to go wrong. Lt. Gen. Christopher C. Bogdan, the Air Force officer in charge of F-35 development, stands firmly by the program, but he acknowledged to Retro Report that the plane’s initial design may have been overambitious and thus trouble prone.

No Apologies: U.S. Aggression Against Vietnam

Out of all the peculiarities of the political milieu in the U.S., what probably stands out the most is the discourse on the U.S. obliteration policies against Vietnam. If in any other country there exists a wider gap between the conventional portrayals and narrative on a war of aggression carried out by that country, on one hand, and the documentary record, on the other, then I have yet to come across it.

What does the general picture on U.S. aggression look like? The U.S. air force dropped more bombing tonnage solely in South Vietnam than the total bombing tonnage of every single aerial bombing campaign by all sides in WWII put together. The total amount of U.S. bombings during the Vietnam War was more than twice the size of all the bombings in WWII.

12 million acres of forest and 25 million acres of farmland, at the bare minimum, were destroyed by U.S. saturation bombing. The U.S. sprayed over 70 million liters of herbicidal agents to Vietnam.

FactCheck: Are most violent criminals Democrats?

Sen. Ted Cruz misrepresented an academic study when he claimed that the “overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats.”

The claim is based on research that found a majority of ex-felons in three states registered as Democrats. But that was a study of all ex-felons, not just violent criminals, as Cruz framed it. Also, a follow-up study of three additional states by the same authors found the majority of ex-felons in those states were neither Republican nor Democrat.

Another study estimated ex-felons are more likely to vote Democratic than Republican, but the authors caution that that doesn’t mean criminality is associated with partisanship. Rather, it is a reflection that those in the criminal justice system are more likely to be black, Latino or poor whites.

Oregon standoff: Grant County sheriff urges release of Hammonds

BURNS – Leaders of the armed protesters holding the national bird sanctuary on Tuesday plan to push their anti-government agenda in Grant County, whose sheriff recommends the government give in to two of their key demands.

Sheriff Glenn Palmer said in a statement to The Oregonian/OregonLive that "the government is going to have to concede something" to end the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

He said freeing a father-son ranching team from prison "would be a start. Sending the FBI home would be a start." He referred to the FBI's lead role in ending the refuge occupation.

"I just pray to God that cooler heads prevail and that no one gets killed," Palmer said.

America’s conservative establishment is in panic mode as renegade billionaire Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican presidential race and thumb his nose at the GOP donor class, which is alarmed that all its money might not dictate the outcome this time, as Bill Moyers and Michael Winship write.

Debt collectors beware: Judge's ruling could change the game

The Great Recession forced Psaros into foreclosure on the house he had bought in this northern New Jersey town in 1999.

Then, another blow. A debt collector demanded about $11,000 in homeowners' insurance, money Psaros claimed he didn't owe under terms of a mortgage refinance signed several years earlier.

He fought back in court and, in a ruling that could change how law firms handle debt collection, a federal judge held last month that the firm representing the debt collector could be liable for damages even if it didn't know its client was relying on incorrect information.

Some experts see the ruling as a game-changer in foreclosure actions, which by their nature target people who are under emotional and financial stress.

Honey of a science project

It took Kumar seven months to collect honey samples from around the island. She had help from beekeepers Jimmy Trujillo and Doug Gates, who helped her network with other beekeepers to gather samples. She gathered a total of 36 samples.

After getting samples, she sent them to a lab in Honolulu and a lab in Germany.

“We wanted to compare the results that were gathered from two different methods to see if they were similar,” Kumar said.

Both lab tests yielded the same results — the area around Kupua and Kapena had the highest levels of glyphosate.

“It’s concerning because pesticides shouldn’t be in honey, and now beekeepers have to question whether or not their honey is safe to sell,” Trujillo said.

High dosages of glyphosate can cause cancer and miscarriages, according to motherearthnews.com.

The new finding may explain why some bee colonies are dying, Trujillo added.

Marco Rubio admits to 'crime spree' in response to Washington Post

In June, the paper outlined Rubio's large debts and his tendency to make big purchases, like an $80,000 boat, despite being in debt. It also reported on his use of a state Republican Party credit card for personal expenses.

The Rubio campaign tried to shrug the article off, saying Rubio's student loan debt makes him relatable to the millions of Americans who are in a similar situation.

But questions about his financial past continue to haunt him.

"In terms of all of that, it raises the question whether you have the maturity and the wisdom to lead this $17 trillion economy. What do you say?" asks a moderator during a GOP debate.

MARTIAL LAW DECLARED IN NEW YORK CITY

It’s the nagging fear many have about our government: what would happen if martial law was declared? New York City just found out, at least temporarily.

Eleven states as well as Washington D.C. declared states of emergency in the wake of the massive record-breaking snowstorm which blanketed the East. But New York City went a step further. Governor Andrew Cuomo declared martial law in New York City by ordering all people to stay inside under police enforcement. He issued an absolute travel ban for anything that is not an emergency vehicle.

Israel’s Shimon Peres hospitalised for ‘irregular heartbeat’: office

Former Israeli president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres was rushed to hospital on Sunday after feeling chest pains and being diagnosed with an “irregular heartbeat”, a spokeswoman said.

Peres will stay overnight at a Tel Aviv hospital “for observation and testing”, she said in a statement, just 10 days after the 92-year-old suffered a mild cardiac event and underwent catheterisation to widen an artery.

On Tuesday, Peres had been released from the Sheba hospital. He was forced to cancel a planned trip the following day to the World Economic Forum in Davos, where he had scheduled 15 meetings with world leaders and international officials.

FLASHBACK WSJ - Clinton’s Emails: A Criminal Charge Is Justified

Hillary’s explanations look increasingly contrived as evidence of malfeasance mounts day by day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

Ted Cruz’s claim that sexual assaults rate ‘went up significantly’ after Australian gun control laws: Four Pinocchios

We’ve heard politicians make all sorts of conclusions about the 1996 gun buyback program in Australia: that it worked, that it didn’t work, that it brought crime rates down, that it made no difference on crime rates. Criminologists are still debating the impact of the buyback program and the overall 1996-97 gun law reform in Australia. But that hasn’t stopped American politicians from either heralding the legislative changes as models for America to curb violence, or dismissing it as ineffective.

The End of Tax Havens?

Most people will abide low to moderate taxation but, whenever governments have become truly rapacious in taxing their people, those people have sought to escape enslavement from their own governments. Sometimes, this has meant physically leaving the country (as so many Britons did in the 70’s) and, sometimes, this has meant moving one’s money to a jurisdiction that has either low, or no, direct taxation.

Tax havens have a long history and, since the 70’s, as taxation in much of the world has been on the rise, havens have unsurprisingly flourished.

Hillary’s team copied intel off top-secret server to email

Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.

The two systems — the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) — are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot email from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send ­emails outside the government.

Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton’s home emails — including several the CIA earlier this month flagged as containing ultra-secret Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Programs, a subset of SCI.

*****What I have been afraid to blog about: THE ESF AND ITS HISTORY (Part 1-5)*****

It is impossible to understand the world today without knowing what the ESF is and what it has been doing. Officially in charge of defending the dollar, the ESF is the government agency which controls the New York Fed, runs the CIA's black budget, and is the architect of the world's monetary system (IMF, World Bank, etc). ESF financing (through the OSS and then the CIA) built up the worldwide propaganda network which has so badly distorted history today (including erasing awareness of its existence from popular consciousness). It has been directly involved in virtually every major US fraud/scandal since its creation in 1934: the London gold pool, the Kennedy assassinations, Iran-Contra, CIA drug trafficking, HIV, and worse...

95yo former Auschwitz paramedic ‘involved in 3,681 murders’ set to go on trial

From August 15 to September 14, 1944, when Hubert acted as the camp’s paramedic, at least 14 deportation trains arrived at Auschwitz from France, Austria and the Netherlands. Among the prisoners was the teenage diarist Anne Frank, author of arguably the most famous Holocaust-era memoir, and her family - many of whom perished in the camp’s gas chambers. Having avoided death at Auschwitz, Frank died in 1945 at the Bergen Belsen extermination camp in Germany.

Hubert Z is not accused of being directly involved in any of the killings. However, the prosecution holds that despite knowing about Auschwitz’s function as a concentration camp, he still decided to work there. By doing so, he consciously “participated in the extermination.”

UKIP leader Farage launches cross-party Brexit platform

“We are not against Europe, we love Europe,” Farage said addressing 2,000 people who gathered in Kettering, Northamptonshire, for the event.

“What we are against is the idea of all of our laws being administered by those in Brussels,” he added as cited by The Northamptonshire Telegraph.

The main argument in favor a British exit from the EU is the EU migration policy of open doors, the UKIP leader noted.

“The key issue that I believe will win us this referendum is the fact that as a member of this union we now have an open door to nearly half a billion people, any of whom can come in to our country,” Farage said urging for UK residents “to take back control of our borders” in the face of the migrant influx.

America’s Secret Multi-Trillion Dollar Black Ops Slush Fund

A month ago two billionaires began a public dialogue that can enlighten us all about the Dark Corners of the American government. It began earlier this month when Hugo Salinas Price noticed that the reserves of Central Banks around the world had declined by a trillion dollars. Central Banks had dumped a trillion dollars in US government bonds in the 17 months ending January 8, 2016. Normally that kind of fire sale of assets would have taken down the US and global economies.

Another billionaire had an answer. Rob Kirby said the US Exchange Stabilization Fund bought that trillion dollars in bonds. The Exchange Stabilization Fund was created in 1934. It is above the law and any Congressional oversight. The CIA has been subject to Congressional investigation but never the ESF. It was initially funded when FDR asked Americans to turn in their gold coins that were valued at $20.67 per ounce. The dollar was devalued to $35 which gave the ESF a paper profit of $2.8 billion.

Chinese Furious after Saudi Crown Prince Shuns Meeting with President Xi

Being concerned about operation of the terrorist groups in the region, the Chinese president was interested in holding a meeting with the Saudi crown prince - who is also in charge of the country's domestic security as interior minister - but arrangements for the meeting failed, a source said today.

During the first day of his visit to Riyadh on January 19, President Xi met with Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman who is also Saudi Arabia's Defense Minister.

President Xi Jinping also met Saudi King Salman in Riyadh and then inaugurated a joint-venture refinery in Yanbu Industrial City on the Red Sea on Wednesday.

The source said arrangements for the meeting with the crown prince failed due to internal differences and rivalries between Mohammed bin Nayef and his deputy Mohammad bin Salman who is the King's son and has high aspirations to topple the Crown prince to replace him.

'Too Big to Fail' Banks Thriving on Wall Street

Who would have thought that the big banks would pay nearly $200 billion in fines and other considerations to various branches of federal and state governments and that not a single top Wall Street executive would be held responsible for perpetrating the wrongdoing represented by those huge fines?

US Senate to Declare “International Martial Law” — Give President “Unlimited” Military Powers

By Justin Gardner

The U.S. Senate is poised to give President Obama and the next president unprecedented war powers that amount to declaring martial law upon the entire world. Majority leader Mitch McConnell surprised almost everyone last week by saying he has a war resolution ready to be voted on at any time.

The resolution is a new authorization for use of military force (AUMF) for declaring war on ISIS. It would give the president even more power than the AUMF granted to Bush after 9/11, which is still in place today...

While at the checkout line the other day I saw this TIME-Life magazine titled 'Modern Day Conspiracy Theories.' The issue covered many topics, including NSA spying, whether vaccines caused autism, the Sandy Hook controversy, and many other issues. I briefly flipped through the issue and found a section on 9/11. They presented a chart describing 5 or so theories regarding 9/11. The top was that the U.S. government had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks and did nothing to prevent it. They last theory listed was that Israel did 9/11 to justify wars and Israel's agenda. I do not recall their exact words, but I was very shocked that such a publication would even mention this! They did not present it in a disparaging manner.

Donald Trump surprised attendees of the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Trade show — also known as the “SHOT Show” — in Las Vegas Thursday with a few announcements, and by receiving a celebrity endorsement.

Before the Republican front-runner took the stage, he was preceded by his son Donald Trump Jr., who spoke of his father’s commitment to the Second Amendment. He also addressed the candidate’s plans to retain public land under the authority of the federal government, to ensure its future preservation.

“We’re going to keep public lands public, keep them open,” Trump Jr. said. “We’re not going to sell them to the states so they can be privatized.”
