Global stocks dip ahead of Fed meeting; oil drops on glut

Global equity markets edged lower on Monday as a 2 percent drop in crude prices weighed on investor sentiment and traders awaited signals of a potential interest rate increase this year from this week's meeting of U.S. Federal Reserve policymakers.

Oil prices fell to two-and-a-half month lows amid worries that a global glut of crude and refined products would weigh on markets for some time.

Your luggage HACKED: Group creates 3D printable master key for major line of TSA-approved luggage locks 

Three hackers have developed and released a 3D printable master key used by Transportation Security Administration, which opens Safe Skies luggage locks.

During a talk given on Saturday, the three hackers known as DarkSim905, a lock enthusiast, Nite 0wl and Johnny Xmas, showed the 3D-printable model of the Safe Skies master key.

In addition to the key, they also discussed methods of collecting intelligence, which led to the compromise of Travel Sentry master keys in 2015 and vulnerabilities in the Safe Skies lock design, according to CSO Online.

Travel Sentry and Safe Skies are TSA recommended travel locks for luggage. They became popular in 2003 to prevent theft.

Clinton Cash’ Trends #1 on Facebook as Progressives Flock To, Promote Film

Clinton Cash catapulted to the #2 trending topic on Facebook Sunday, in the wake of the global premiere of the motion picture adaptation of the New York Times best-selling book Clinton Cash authored by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer.

Among the most impassioned supporters of the film were committed Bernie Sanders backers, who took to their respective Facebook accounts and prompted to them film to their followers.

Paul Ryan Flees Grieving Moms Trying To Show Him Photos Of Their Children Killed By His Open Borders Agenda

American mothers, whose children were killed by illegal aliens, say that House Speaker Paul Ryan and members of his security detail fled from his guarded estate on Saturday as they attempted to present Ryan with the photos of their murdered children, and show him the true cost of his open borders agenda.
On Saturday, four “angel moms” held a press conference in front of Ryan’s personal border wall. The mothers explained that they deserved to be able to give heir children the same security that Ryan gives his children.

During the press event, the mothers announced their decision to endorse Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen in his effort to unseat Ryan in his August 9th primary election. Nehlen is running a campaign that is focused on securing the border and curbing immigration into the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You don't see Ryan in the picture here; however, if in fact this is true, it is simply just another demonstration that our alleged representatives in DC do not give a rat's anus for the safety and well-being of their constituents, and cheap labor trumps all.

Hillary Clinton has all kinds of policies — that's the problem as she seeks a coherent message

The convention the Republicans just wrapped up in Cleveland, with its prime-time plagiarism, back-stabbing rivals and missing dignitaries, may not be a tough act to follow, but Democrats are nonetheless in a state of high anxiety as the spotlight shifts their way this week.

The party will take the stage for its own presidential nominating convention in Philadelphia at a time Hillary Clinton would be breaking records for unlikability were she not outdone by Donald Trump. In addition to distrusting her, too many voters are not clear about what she stands for and question whether she can bring about the change they crave.

Just 39% of registered voters see Clinton as a candidate who can bring the country needed change, as opposed to 50% who saw that in Trump, a recent ABC News poll found. Clinton was seen as honest and trustworthy by just slightly more than a third of voters in the poll. Trump scored slightly higher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "change" the Clinton presidency will bring will be more wars of aggression; a complete return to the draft, for both young men and young women; more economic contractions; more off-shoring/outsourcing of American jobs; and an absolute decline in the standard of living for those folks who are not already millionaires.

The Missing Man at the Center of Hillary Clinton’s Email Scandal

Of all the characters in the political drama of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, none has been more mysterious—and potentially more important—than a 40-year-old technology specialist named Bryan Pagliano.

Pagliano didn’t just set up the now infamous “homebrew” server in the basement of Clinton’s New York home, which she used for official business while serving as secretary of state. Pagliano has been the former secretary’s go-to IT guy for the past several years. He’s also the only person in the entire investigation of Clinton’s email who got an immunity deal, protecting him from possible criminal prosecution. That was Pagliano’s demand for telling FBI investigators about Clinton’s unorthodox system—a system that he apparently knows more about than anyone else.

The Fed Has Some Explaining to Do

Markets no longer have a framework for understanding what the U.S. Federal Reserve plans to do with interest rates -- and a policy-making meeting this week isn't likely to shed much light. That's a gap that Fed Chair Janet Yellen, when she next speaks to the public in late August, will have to fill.

It's pretty much a given that when the policy-making Federal Open Market Committee meets on Tuesday and Wednesday, it will decide to leave its short-term interest-rate target unchanged -- and the accompanying formulaic statement won’t do much to dispel growing uncertainty about how the central bank’s next steps.>>>

U.S. Media Blames Putin Conspiracy for Homegrown Trump Phenomenon

Donald Trump is the media’s favorite excuse to bash Official U.S. Enemies. His Rorschach politics that shift almost weekly allows overworked writers to project onto Trump whatever traits they need to make an analogy stick (and deadline met).

Over the past year Trump has been Nicolas Maduro, Joseph Stalin, Kim Jong-Il, Saddam Hussein, an African dictator, Bashar al-Assad, Bernie Sanders, Fidel Castro, Ayatollah Khomeini, Hugo Chavez (a dozen times!), Mao Zedong, a Chinese communist (present day), a Chinese communist (1980s), Caligula, Rodrigo Duterte, Jeremy Corbyn, Pinochet, Norse god Loki, Brexit, Napoleon, Barry Goldwater, Mussolini, Nero, Andrew Jackson, Voldemort, Groucho Marx, Adolf Hitler, Moqtada al-Sadr, Joseph Goebbels, L. Ron Hubbard, King George III, Richard Nixon, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Basically the entire cast of Game of Thrones, Batman vs. Superman, and Donald Trump himself. Twice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is desperation on the cusp of madness.

And the establishment is attacking Trump in this way, because they are collectively terrified that Trump may well win the next election, because what he has to say about the issues resonates so well with Americans.

Erdogan Orders 1,000 Schools Closed as Purge Grows

As post-coup Turkey enters its second week, the focus of the ever-growing purge seems to be increasingly centered on private schools and charities, which the Erdogan government has accused of secretly being in league with Fethullah Gulen, a cleric who was once a close ally to Erdogan, and is now accused of being behind the coup.

The estimated 60,000 people fired in the wake of the failed coup have included a huge number of schoolteachers, as well as literally all of the university deans in the country. Reports have suggested Turkey’s intelligence agency had substantial “enemies” lists prepared long before the coup happened, and they have served as a pretext to get rid of them en masse.

Over the weekend, Erdogan ordered some 1,000 private schools closed, accusing them all of being linked to Gulen. Under the current state of emergency powers that he has, there is no real recourse to the closures, nor any need for the government to provide evidence against the schools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Purging one's education system of its teachers is a very drastic step for a government to take, particularly if there is absolutely no due process.

Heaven only knows what else Erdogan has in mind for those he "believes" were behind the aborted coup. However, we have the following, and very disturbing, reports from antiwar.com:

As Turkey continues to ratchet up their post-coup purge, with mass detentions and wholesale firings the order of the day, Amnesty International is warning that there are an alarming number of credible reports of torture and rape of detainees by the Turkish government. Amnesty cited interviews with lawyers, doctors, and people on-duty at the detention centers. In the 9 days since the failed coup, an estimated 10,000 have been detained, some taken to actual jails but a lot of them just held in makeshift unofficial detention centers. Lawyers reported that they saw detainees being brought in for interrogation by prosecutors with their shirts already covered in blood, reporting they’d been denied food and water for days. The detainees largely aren’t allowed access to legal counsel.

Also from antiwar.com:

It’s not a good time to be a critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey. After years of consolidating power, and silencing public dissent, the failed coup earlier this month has allowed his government to set up a state of emergency which allows detention on any pretext, and which has many people simply disappearing into an overloaded and under-motivated court system.

If, in fact, these reports are true, under Erdogan's watch, Turkey, post-attempted coup, has devolved from a democracy to a thugocracy, which has become a danger to its own people, and is about to become a danger to the world at large.

Munich Shooting Sparks Push to End Post-WW2 Limits on Using German Military Domestically

Once again underscoring how quickly security officials will look to parlay any incident into an increase of power, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann is pushing for a revision of the German Constitution after Friday’s mass shooting in Munich to remove limits on using the military domestically, limits that were put in place immediately after the destruction of the Nazi government.

The German Constitution currently limits the military’s domestic deployments, only allowing their use in cases of “national emergency.” Hermann insisted this was “absolute” and that Germany, as “an absolutely stable democracy,” should be perfectly comfortable with their military deployed on the streets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What's that phrase, "Never let a good crisis go to waste"?!?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent Tim Canova to file FEC complaint against her

Embattled DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz faced more controversy Monday morning when her primary opponent, Tim Canova, told local Florida newspapers he was filing a complaint against her.

“Our lawyers are preparing a complaint against Wasserman Schultz that we will file with the FEC for her wrongful use of DNC resources in her campaign against me, based on the wikileaks disclosures,” Canova said.

According to “Naked Politics,” the Miami Herald‘s political blog, the issue goes back to the Florida Democratic Committee’s initial refusal to turn over to the Canova campaign voter lists that would have allowed Canova to solicit donations.

“Earlier this year Canova battled with the Florida Democratic Party to gain access to the voter file, which he eventually received. That’s one of the topics in the DNC emails in which a staffer received a questions about whether Wasserman Schultz was involved in blocking Canova’s access,” the Herald reported.

"BILLIONAIRES FOR BILLARY": MIKE BLOOMBERG WILL ENDORSE HILLARY

First The Koch Brothers switch sides and now Michael Bloomberg backs Clinton as it appears America's oligarchy is showing its true colors as 'Billionaires for Billary' emerge from the RNC woodwork...

As The NY Times reports, Michael R. Bloomberg, who bypassed his own run for the presidency this election cycle, will endorse Hillary Clinton in a prime-time address at the Democratic convention and make the case for Mrs. Clinton as the best choice for moderate voters in 2016, an adviser to Mr. Bloomberg said.

The news is an unexpected move from Mr. Bloomberg, who has not been a member of the Democratic Party since 2000; was elected the mayor of New York City as a Republican; and later became an independent.

Mr. Bloomberg will vouch for Mrs. Clinton “from the perspective of a business leader and an independent,” said Howard Wolfson, a senior adviser to Mr. Bloomberg.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...the clear choice..." for whom, please?!?

For those who profit from death, wars, income inequality, and the continued outsourcing/offshoring of American jobs?!?

And let's take a look at the moral factor in from whom the Clinton Foundation has taken money, in terms of the Clinton Foundation, that incredible "pay to play" slush fund the Clintons founded. As reported at truthfeed.com:

http://truthfeed.com/sean-hannity-publishes-list-of-middle-east-countries-hillary-has-taken-money-from-that-punish-gays-with-death/7237/

And what, aside from killing, castrating, or jailing homosexuals, do all these countries mentioned above have in common?!?

Not only do these countries punish gay/lesbian people with death, imprisonment, and chemical castration, l let's see what other"wonderful
things" they allow to happen in women in these countries
:

THEY ALL STILL PERMIT FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION.
Countries which still allow the practice of female genital mutilation

So let me get my head around this; Clinton is "absolutely fine" with accepting money from countries which still castrate and kill gay people, and genitally mutilate their women, yet Clinton is characterized by Michael Bloomberg as "the clear choice" in this election?!?

One has to come to two inescapable conclusions here; Mr. Bloomberg is either too completely stupid to realise the prevalence of these practices in countries from which the Clinton Foundation has taken money, or just sees Clinton as the better "financial ally" for his present and future investments.

Uncontrolled Refugeeism Will Be The Undoing Of Now-Ruling Political Class

Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, Viktor Orban, Nigel Farage and myriad other populist, right-wing leaders sprouting over much of the Western World, are being tagged by the political ruling class as an ill-conceived, hate-fest phenomenon; and often portrayed as the mutant offspring of fascism. Such interpretation, however, might be only serving as ear plugs against the loud, real voices of people who fear a real threat to their economic wellbeing or their cultural identity.

This mischaracterization could end up being the undoing of the now-ruling political class, not just in some European nations but also in the US. And, when there is no trip switch to prevent emotional blindness as fear holds hands with anger, an egomaniac such as Trump could easily become the hopeful savior to many, instead of the predatory con man his deeds point him to be.

How to Recognize A False Flag Attack | 13 Important Elements To Look For In Every Staged Shooting Event

A false flag is any event that is used to manipulate the public in a covert or deceptive way but usually involves some kind of terrorist element. All that need be done in this sense is for the media to cover an event in a way that furthers an agenda, usually by providing a solution, like Gun Control or more draconian domestic policies. However, some false flag attacks are most definitely staged, where literally the whole thing is fabricated. Sandy Hook seems to be one glaring example of this.

CHINA BANS WEBSITES FROM ORIGINAL REPORTING

It was about six months ago when global stock markets were crashing, that China tightened its control on local media, and ordered the local press and news outlets to stick to "positive reporting" or else "risk the stability of the country." As we reported back in February "China is now openly declaring war on anyone who dares to even suggest that not all may be well in China. A separate commentary by Xinhua yesterday said that controlling public opinion was essential for a a ruling party: “With one hand we grab the guns; with the other we grab the pens,” it said. “Mobilising public opinion is the great tradition of our party.”In other words, China is worried that popular anger and negative sentiment is starting to stir especially after the recent economic troubles, and that those who dare to promote an objective version of reality will likely be promptly quieted."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, isn't the US economy supposed to be in a "recovery"?!?

Perhaps; but if it is, it is only for the one percenters out there, and definitely NOT for "We the People".

They’re Selected Not Elected – Rothschild Hosts $100,000 A Plate Dinner For Guess Who

Apart from corporate sponsors like big oil and energy companies, it’s not a secret that Hillary has the banking of those who literally control the supply of money, those who basically created this entire system. A great example comes from a $100,000 a head fundraiser at the home of Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent New York businesswoman, and a member of the famous Rothschild banking family. A family that has been accused of, as Jay Syrmopoulos from The Free Thought Project puts it, “pulling the strings of many different governments through their control of various economic systems throughout the world.” Prior to this fundraiser, Wikileaks Clinton emails release shed further light on Hillary’s relationship with the Rothschild family.

Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.

The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.

Buying milk about as close to nature as it gets – directly from the cow – is still a punishable offense in many areas of the U.S., and residents of the Houston, Texas, suburb of Katy were reminded of this recently, after being paid a visit by police officers for the “crime” of buying and selling raw dairy products on private property.

According to reports, county health inspectors in cahoots with a police entourage raided a raw milk exchange taking place in the parking lot of Holy Apostles Church, a drop-off point where area residents come to pick up raw milk they’ve legally purchased from nearby farms. Sheriff’s deputies broke up the gathering, despite the fact that it in no way violates the law concerning raw milk sales in Texas.

PA Man Arrested and Jailed for Flying a Flag Upside Down Gets $55,000

By Matt Agorist

A man from central Pennsylvania was kidnapped by police and deprived of his rights for doing nothing more than hanging an American flag upside down on his own property. Joshua Brubaker has since settled a civil rights lawsuit against the city for more than $55,000.

The Altoona Mirror reports Friday that supervisors in Allegheny Township, Blair County, have approved letting their insurance company pay the money to Joshua Brubaker.

In May of 2014, Brubaker said he was standing up for his American Indian heritage when he hung the upside down flag outside of his home with the letters AIM spray painted on it. AIM stands for American Indian Movement...

t’s not surprising that the list of converts to Clinton leans toward national security types and former Republican Party or Bush officials. Currently elected GOP officials might be willing to say Never Trump, but taking the next step to Clinton is harder.

Robert Kagan broke with his party and changed his registration to Independent because of Trump, and not only over foreign policy. “His foreign policy is terrible, but my chief concern is more what he would do here. I fear what he would do to American democracy.” Kagan’s May 18 column about Trump in The Washington Post was titled, “This is how fascism comes to America.”

13-minute video: Hillary Clinton a threat to all humanity; the only rational, legal, responsible citizen move is her arrest for OBVIOUS crimes in war, looting, lying (and don’t vote for Trump)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

GlobalReasearchTV’s sharp 13-minute video to detail lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, threats for further wars, and serial lying:

Hillary Clinton belongs in prison for her principal roles in ongoing lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression as a vocal US Senator, the top US representative with other nations as Secretary of State, and two-time presidential candidate.

These crimes (as well as running a rogue State Department with illegal and non-secure e-mails she lies about) are Emperor’s New Clothes obvious for anyone caring to look:

All US reasons for war on Afghanistan, Iraq, threats for war on Iran, and support for Israel’s war on Gaza were known to be false as they were told.
US armed attacks and ongoing wars are the Orwellian opposite of legal. After two world wars with US-led treaties, these are Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity, with the UK and Israel equally guilty with their “leaderships.”

For those in the United States who ran a simple search of Donald Trump’s name a day after the Republican Convention expecting to see a critical response from the mainstream punditry they were in for a stunning propagandistic treat when they hit the enter button with 12 of the top 14 articles featuring titles in the vein of "Trump proves he is Putin’s lapdog."

No.

But is he a real, viable challenge to the "business as usual" career politicians who are completely tone-deaf to the plight of so many Americans who have found themselves, through absolutely no fault of their own, economically marginalized through offshoring/outsource of jobs which used to be the mainstay of a thriving, stable middle class?!?

IN FIRST "EMERGENCY" DECREE, ERDOGAN SHUTS DOWN THOUSANDS OF HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS, CHARITIES

With the failed/staged Turkish coup quickly fading from memory and media attention, just as Erdogan likes it, and opposition from "western democracies" to a historic purge virtually non-existent aside from the occasional media soundbite, overnight Erdogan implemented his first decree since imposing a state of emergency in the country last week, and tightened his grip on Turkey by ordering the closure of thousands of private schools, charities and other institutions in his first decree since imposing a state of emergency after the failed military coup.

In his first "emergency powers" decree, published by the Anadolu state news agency, Erdogan authorised the closure of 1,043 private schools, 1,229 charities and foundations, 19 trade unions, 15 universities and 35 hospitals over suspected links to the Gulen movement. The government also announced it would seize the properties of all these schools, universities and private institutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that Turkey's currently leadership has not thought through the financial implications of these moves on their economy.

Watch for the Turkish lira to be degraded to "junk" status very soon.

But one thing is clear; in his occupation of the Incerlik base (with its US personnel and nuclear weapons), Erdogan has the current American government by a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy, and is squeezing it in a most painful way.

Under no circumstances can Obama deliver Gulen alive, because he will completely spill the beans on CIA activities in Turkey, even before they tickle him with a feather to get him to "confess"

Therefore, the only option is an extrajudicial assassination against him, most probably courtesy of the CIA.

Obama is no stranger at all to this process; after all, he has signed hundreds, if not thousands, of orders for extrajudicial assassinations during his administration.

One more, to attempt to salvage any possible rapprochement with Turkey, will be no big deal for him.

VIDEO: BIZARRE HILLARY BEHAVIOR CAUGHT ON CAMERA

This recent video showing a seizure type episode suffered by Hillary Clinton adds to the reoccurring questions about the overall health of the Democratic Party's nominee.

Not that Clinton is in perfect health. She is on Coumadin, an anti-coagulation medication she takes for deep-vein thrombosis (that is, a blood clot in a deep vein). She suffered from the condition in 1998 and 2009, Bardack writes, and also suffered a clot after a 2012 concussion. That concussion came as Clinton, dehydrated from a stomach virus, fainted in her home. Though the effects of the concussion are gone and the thrombosis was dissolved, she has taken the medication since then as a precaution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I doubt that this "release" is any more real than her tax reports on the Clinton Foundation.

In fact, I would love to see both true medical - and financial audit here.

Being human on a psychopathically controlled Earth: Three lessons from the movie ‘Groundhog Day’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The 1993 movie Groundhog Day is the story of a person trapped to live the same day over and over. The main character responds to this situation in three phases:

Manipulative control for selfish short-term desires.
Depression and attempted rejection from no escape and no satisfaction.
Self-expression for virtue and service with satisfaction.
After selfish desire is transcended, the character awakens on a new day with all the earned skills of practiced virtues.

Five-minute overview:

2016 planet Earth is the story of humanity trapped to live the same psychopathic control system over and over. Relatively unaware humans are like the background characters in Groundhog Day, operational work animals for the .01%. Relatively aware humans respond to this situation in three phases:

Manipulative control for selfish benefits (willfully operating within parasitic systems and/or joining the .01% psychopaths).

Leftists Planning Coup On President Trump? L.A. Times Says “Voters Must Stop Him Before Military Has To”

There is a very real and very potent anger fomenting across our country. Though there are good reasons for it, most of it is misdirected, and 2016 has proven to be open season for attacks of all kind against Trump and his supporters. Violence has trailed his campaign as passionate leftists stop at nothing to defy his controversial policies on immigration and the rest of it. The rule of law is slipping away, and certain sectors of the establishment love the chaos is will bring.

How the Australian, British, and US Governments Shamelessly Helped Kill Countless People in Indonesia in 1965

The Hague-based International People’s Tribunal has ruled that the Indonesian regime that replaced Indonesian President Sukarno committed crimes against humanity in 1965. The governments of Australia, Britain, and the United States have also been pronounced guilty as complicit partners in the massacre of 500,000 to 1000,000 people or more in Indonesia. People were murdered in Indonesia due to their principles, political ideology, ethnic backgrounds, and opposition to foreign influence. Albeit the ruling is an important historical acknowledgment, the assistance that the Australian, British, and US governments provided to the coup and played in the massacres is not a secret.

European Supreme Court says “Maybe” to mass surveillance of innocents

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) says that mass surveillance of innocent people may be legal in a preliminary ruling issued today. The ECJ is the highest court in the European Union, and it issues preliminary rulings by a General Advocate about six months ahead of its final ruling. Today’s preliminary ruling allows for mass surveillance on a state-by-state basis, but only when five conditions are met.

A naked man shouting out 'praise to Allah' was filmed in a public square running rings around three police officers who struggle to catch him.
The 22-year-old man from Tunisia, who has not been named, was seen running in the nude around the Pratto della Valle Square in the city of Padua in the northern Veneto region of Italy.
He was spotted by a passing police patrol and amused onlookers watched as a game of cat and mouse unfolded.

Speaking at the White House today, President Obama denied unequivocally that the US had any prior knowledge of last week’s failed military coup in Turkey, calling on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to make sure everyone in Turkey knows the US wasn’t involved.

The early US reaction to the coup has raised a lot of speculation, as Secretary of State John Kerry, during the coup, issued a tepid comment just urging “stability.” The US only condemned the coup when it became clear, later that evening, that it was going to fail.

Grinning Obama JOKES during statement on Munich carnage as he shifts gears to say he'll miss daughter Malia when she leaves the nest for college

As news reports of a gun massacre in Munich crossed the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, the President of the United States was cracking jokes.
Barack Obama delivered a brief update to reporters at the White House about the still-unfolding shooting rampage that left the German city on lockdown.
Eight are confirmed dead, and 10 injured.

The president was speaking to law enforcement agents at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, adjacent to the White House.

But as cameras rolled on the somber moment, Obama grinned and chuckled – and drew laughs from his audience – about his elder daughter Malia leaving the nest and heading for college.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is perfectly predictable from one of the most emotionally "tone-deaf" Presidents we have ever had.

And of course, for a man who frequently signs off on extrajudicial assassinations around the world, the tragedy of Munich meant absolutely nothing to him.

"TURKEY’S SECRET PACT WITH ISLAMIC STATE EXPOSED BY OPERATIVE BEHIND WAVE OF ISIS ATTACKS"

New evidence has emerged that the Turkish government under President Erdogan is covertly providing direct military, financial and logistical support to ISIS, even while claiming to fight the terror network.

The evidence comes in the form of testimony from an ISIS terrorist captured by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, widely recognised as the most effective force confronting ISIS on the ground.

The testimony has been reported by two Kurdish news agencies, the Syrian-Kurdish Harwar News Agency (ANHA) based in Rojava, and the Turkish-Kurdish Ajansa Nûçeyan a Firatê (Firat News Agency or ANF News). The latter’s head office is based in Amsterdam.

Websites of both news agencies are blocked in Turkey.

Interviews with the ISIS fighter, captured by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), reveal that Turkish military and security forces are facilitating ISIS operations within Syria, as well as ISIS terrorist attacks inside Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, this is a very damning development.

And even if not true, my bet will be that the US government will use it as anti-Turkey propaganda.

Unfortunately, however, President Obama is in a very difficult situation.

Turkey has our 2700 troops at Incerlik, and 51 nuclear bombs; Turkey has formally demanded the extradition of Imam Gulen, a demand to which the US government has not responded, and most probably will not.

And the reason I say this is because Gulen is a CIA asset, who most probably will blab everything he knows about the CIA's presence in Turkey at the first threat of "enhanced interrogation."

Look for Gulen to become "very depressed" about the situation in his homeland, get suicided", and Fedexed back to Erdogan in a cheap metal casket.

Political assassinations have become such a norm in this country that I would not bet against it right now.

THE “DRUG WAR” IS A CRONY WAR: CORRUPT COP COMES CLEAN, 50-60 CONVICTIONS OVERTURNED, COP GOES TO JAIL AND ASKS FOR FORGIVENESS (VIDEO)

The question is fundamentally what is worse, the drugs or the drug war? It seems clear to me that the drug war is far worse.

The drug war destroys lives of innocent people. It incentivises police corruption. It incentivizes the distribution of hard drugs. It puts money into the pockets of organized crime. It often keeps people who need help from getting help. It undermines our very Constitution. The drug war is a failed and very expensive social experiment. We need to find another way.

Kermit Roosevelt, the Mossadegh coup-master turned Northrop salesman, admitted in his memoirs that SAVAK was 100% created by the CIA and Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency that acts as appendage of the CIA. For the next 20 years the CIA and SAVAK were joined at the hip when it came to matters of Persian Gulf security.

WHEN COPS PREPARE TO SHOOT YOU AND THE WAR OF FATAL FORCE

This week has culminated, once again, in loud calls for retaliation against police brutality and excessive/lethal force across the United States. As video surfaces of police trying to shoot an Autistic 23 year old man with a toy truck- instead shooting a fully complying therapist laying down next to and trying to talk the man out of suicide- anger and calls to action against police brutality and excessive force have ripped through the online community, which is still trying to come to terms with the fatal shootings of two men and a young, unarmed teen in late June and early July. So far, there have been an estimated 643 fatal police shootings of citizens in 2016, with at least 60 fatal police shootings in the month of July alone, meaning that nearly 3 citizens have been killed every day by police across the country since the beginning of the month.

Texas corrections officer 'admits he lied about checking on Sandra Bland an hour before her death and falsified jail record when she was found dead in cell'

A former Texas jail guard who said he checked on Sandra Bland an hour before she was found dead has admitted to falsifying log entries, a lawyer for Bland's family revealed.

Rafael Zuniga noted in a jail log he had checked on Bland an hour before she was discovered hanging from a jail cell partition on July 13, 2015. Her death was ruled a suicide.

The corrections officer had originally claimed he looked in on Bland at 8.01am that day. But Cannon Lambert, the family's attorney, said there was 'no question' that never happened.

Lambert said the guard has since acknowledged to falsifying the log, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Clinton Has The Gaul To Mock Trump’s Convention Speech

***
“His vision of America is one where we Americans are kind of helpless. We need to be rescued,” she said. “I can’t really imagine him on a white horse, but that seems to be what he is telling us: I alone can fix it.”
***
“Something has gone terribly wrong when one speaker says vote your conscience and gets booed,” Clinton said. “I never thought I would say these words, but Ted Cruz was right.”
***
“I don’t think he speaks for most Americans, do you?” Clinton asked.

“I don’t think he speaks for working families who would be devastated by his reckless economic policies,” she said. “He doesn’t speak for anyone who thinks our country should be standing together, not splintering apart. He sure doesn’t speak for me because I know we are stronger together.”

“It Is Really Hard To Argue With Trump About This”: Face It, America Is In Decline

America is in decline. There are some that still attempt to deny this, but the reason why Donald Trump’s campaign slogan has so strongly resonated with the American people is because deep inside most of us realize that America is not as great as it used to be. Our economy is a mess, we are 19 trillion dollars in debt, our infrastructure is crumbling, crime is on the rise, moral decay is all around us, other countries don’t respect us as much anymore, and our nation is the most divided that it has been in decades. Anyone that believes that America is better than it has ever been in 2016 is either completely delusional or simply has not been paying attention.

Retired Lawman Challenges Corrupt Sitting Sheriff in Council, Idaho

Tom Watts is running for Sheriff in Adams County, Idaho, against Sheriff Ryan Zollman. Zollman employs and constantly defends deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland, who shot and killed 62-year-old rancher Jack Yantis on the road in front of his ranch last November 1st. Watts is a lifelong lawman who never had a complaint filed against him. His campaign website states, in part, "I proudly served my community as a law enforcement officer for over 20 years in Nevada without ever having a citizen file a complaint against me. I have also worked private security for mining companies in that area. I moved to Adams County in 2012. It has been my pleasure to simply be a part of this community, and it was my intention to retire from law enforcement. I have been moved to run for this office by the serious issues facing our county, and our nation."

The Unavoidable Fall of the American Empire

Is America getting worse or better? Is America going to be “great” again, whatever that has meant since the 1980s? But more to the point, what difference does any of it make? Let’s be honest here about the so-called future of the United States of America. Since the dawn of what humanity likes to call “civilization” (i.e. the ability of a government to rob honest people under the guise of taxation), very few governments/nations/kingdoms have survived more than a few hundred years. Now, the United States has had a pretty good run. We’ve done a lot and accomplished a lot, not the least of which is inventing the ability to destroy the entire planet.

Pentagon Revises Law of War Policy Treating Reporters Like Spies

The Pentagon is changing the U.S. military's manual of war after listening to criticism of the language regarding journalists, which seemed to let commanders treat reporters as spies, The Huffington Post reports.

The U.S. Department of Defense manual was released in June 2015, and quickly drew attention from The New York Times, which pointed out the guidelines on journalists and called for their repeal.

Under the 2015 version, journalists could be treated as "unprivileged belligerents," which entails fewer legal protections than those afforded to prisoners of war and combatants.

"The new language is a seismic shift for the U.S. military," said Frank Smyth, senior adviser for journalist security at the Committee to Protect Journalists. "This affirmation of journalists' right to report armed conflicts freely and from all sides is especially welcome at a time when governments, militias, and insurgent forces around the world are routinely flouting the laws of war."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...fewer legal protections than those afforded to prisoners of war and combatants."?!?!?!

Considering how hellish the treatment of prisoners of war has been at Gitmo,
apparently saying something the Pentagon doesn't like (the truth), you, as a reporter, can therefore be indefinitely detained without due process.

When telling the truth becomes criminalized, you know that the society doing it is in deep, intense trouble.

Public have no right to know who is funding Hillary Clinton's $60 million coronation at Democratic National Convention, party says in bid for secrecy on donors 

The host committee for the Democratic National Convention wants to keep its donor list under wraps until after the convention even though a state open records agency has ordered its release.

A Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee lawyer told a judge Thursday the release of fundraising records could harm the organization's last-minute efforts to seek donations and negotiate vendor contracts.

Lawyer David Pittinsky said those efforts were still ongoing even though the four-day convention starts Monday.

The host committee set out to raise about $60 million from private sources, but secured a $15 million line of credit from the city as a safety net. The committee must therefore file financial updates with the city.

Three hundred fifty SAVAK agents were shuttled each year to CIA training facilities in McLean, Virginia, where they learned the finer arts of interrogation and torture. Top SAVAK brass were trained through the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Public Safety Program, until it was shut down in 1973 due to its reputation for turning out some of the world’s finest terrorists.

The Crisis in Turkey Could Swallow Us All. Is America behind the Coup?

Erdogan has said he did not want to link the delivery of Gulen to Turkish justice with the continued cooperation between the U.S. and Turkey in using the Incirlik air base – thereby linking the two. Incirlik is a Turkish base with a strong NATO presence (including some 2,700 Americans). The previous Turkish commander of the base is now under arrest for his role in the coup, including sending up F-16s and refueling tankers from Incirlik. Erdogan might well ask: what did the Americans there know, and when did they know it? Incirlik is important in the war on ISIS as the base from which most air attacks on ISIS originate. Responding to the coup, the Turkish government cut power to Incirlik and imposed a no-fly zone, shutting it down. That sealed-off condition continued through July 20, with no one allowed to leave or enter the base, although air attacks on ISIS have reportedly resumed.

ISIS TERRORJUL 21 2016, 11:59 AM ETISIS Trying to Topple Saudi King with Attack on Mohammed's Mosque

Current and former U.S. officials say a recent ISIS attack on the tomb of Mohammed in Saudi Arabia -- Islam's second holiest site -- shows the terror group is now directly challenging the kingdom's ruling family and trying to topple the monarchy.

"The Saudi king's tiles include 'Protector of the two Holy Cities," said one senior U.S. counterterrorism official. "The message of the attack is that that protection doesn't exist."

The kingdom's two holy cities, Mecca and Medina, are home Islam's two holiest sites, the Qabba in Mecca, which millions of pilgrims visit every year, and the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina, which holds Mohammed's tomb.

Said the counterterrorism official, "If [the royal family] can't protect those places -- and people traveling to those cities from across Islam - it calls in to question the fitness of their ruling power and its legitimacy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, I would want to have an immediate chat with US Ambassador Westphal as to what the hell American trained and supported ISIS was doing in Saudi Arabia.

I would then politely remind him that if this crud does not stop, all Saudi investment, over 20 billion dollars, would be yanked immediately from American business interests, putting the US economy into an absolute tail spin.

Atlanta mayor rejects demand to end Israel police training

“There was a demand that I stop allowing the Atlanta Police Department to train with the Israeli police department,” Mayor Reed acknowledged at a press conference (video above). “I’m not going to do that,” he told reporters.

“I happen to believe that the Israeli police department has some of the best counterterrorism techniques in the world,” Reed insisted. “And it benefits our police department from that longstanding relationship.”

It was an interesting choice of words considering that Israeli, Palestinian and international human rights organizations, as well as the UN, have repeatedly condemned Israeli forces, including the police, for a range of human rights violations, particularly for their frequent extrajudicial executions of Palestinians.

It was also recently revealed that Israeli police are authorized to use lethal force as a first resort against Palestinians they suspect might throw rocks, including minors.

WSJ Reporter's "Shocking" Discovery: DHS Can Confiscate Any Device Along The Border Without Suspicion

"They grilled me for an hour," she wrote. "I answered jovially, because I've had enough high-level security experiences to know that being annoyed or hostile will work against you." Abi-Habib said that the agents then asked for her cellphones in order to "collect information."

"That is where I drew the line," Abi-Habib wrote. "I told her I had First Amendment rights as a journalist she couldn't violate and I was protected under."

According to Abi-Habib, the agent then presented a DHS document which explained that the government has the right to confiscate phones within 100 miles from U.S. borders: the document "basically says the US government has the right to seize my phones and my rights as a US citizen (or citizen of the world) go out the window."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Supreme Court ruled in Marbury vs Madison that laws repugnant to the Constitution are automatically null and void. This claim that the Constitution does not apply within 100 miles of a national border (which here in Hawaii means the entire state) is itself null and void.

Turkish Parliament Grants Erdogan Sweeping New Powers for State of Emergency

In a 346-115 vote, the Turkish parliament has approved a three month state of emergency across Turkey, the first time such a state will be applied over the entire nation. The vote grants sweeping new powers to President Erdogan, who had already centralized an unprecedented level of power before the failed coup.

The new powers aim to facilitate the expansion of the ongoing purge against broad swathes of Turkish society, allowing longer detention for suspects without charges, and for Erdogan to effectively rule by decree on several issues, without parliament approval.

Beyond that, the state of emergency allows the government to effectively ignore human rights law entirely, with the constitution only limiting them to the extent that there are limits in place from international treaties. Turkey’s withdrawal from the European Commission on Human Rights today suggests that they are planning to pare down such limits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a foreign national doing business in Turkey, I would cut my losses, and get the heck out of Dodge immediately, if not sooner.

This will not end well.

There is a great tyrannical darkness descending over this nation, and Attaturk, the founder of modern-day religiously-neutral Turkey, is most probably rolling over in his grave, at warp speed.

Ohio Legislature moves towards mandatory vaccines, proposing to eliminate philosophical exemptions entirely

A growing number of parents across the nation are now going against the recommendations of the CDC vaccine schedule – which currently promotes the injecting of 49 doses of various vaccines before a child turns 6 years old. The number of parents opting out of the onslaught of childhood vaccinations has doubled since 2009. As vaccine use plummets, state legislatures are trying to find new ways to bully parents into the vaccination cycle.

A new bill in Ohio (HB 564) seeks to intimidate parents into vaccine compliance by forcing them to be re-educated about the benefits of vaccines. Ohio parents will no longer be allowed to send their children to public schools unless they see a state-licensed medical doctor first to receive such re-education. If the parent objects to a vaccine, and determines it's not worth the risk to their child, they will no longer get to make that choice freely.

Top Clinton Lobbyist Bundlers Tied to Foreign Banks, Governments

A number of Hillary Clinton’s top lobbyist bundlers, who have raised millions for her presidential campaign, either directly represent foreign entities or work at firms that represent foreign entities, according to documents from the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Unit.

Hillary for America, Clinton’s campaign committee, has hauled in more than $7 million in bundled lobbyist contributions since its inception. The committee finished 2015 with $4.1 million in bundled lobbyist contributions. It has since added more than $2.9 million to its coffers from lobbyists, with $1.2 million of that amount pouring in during the second quarter of 2016, from April 1 to June 30.

Tony Podesta, owner of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton’s campaign, is a top bundler for Hillary for America. Podesta has bundled $267,835 in contributions to date. Podesta was hired to work on behalf of Saudi interests.

Miami cop shot caregiver while trying to protect him from autistic man with toy truck: police union

North Miami police offered a weird excuse for the officer who shot and wounded a black, unarmed hospital caregiver tending to an autistic man.

The head of the Florida city’s police union said the officer, whose name still has not been released, actually meant to shoot the autistic man playing in the street with a toy truck, reported the Miami Herald.

John Rivera, head of Miami-Dade’s Police Benevolent Association, said the officer was actually trying to protect the caregiver, Charles Kinsey, from his autistic patient by firing three shots from a military-style rifle.

But he apparently missed and shot Kinsey instead.

Video showing most of the encounter has been released, and the shooting has gained international attention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The intensity of police brutality borders on insane right now in this country.

Instead of being trained to calm down, or walk back from, an allegedly volatile situation, it appears that US police believe they can shoot to kill, and get away with it with absolutely impunity.

Wireless technology that allows electronic devices to communicate directly with one another
Recently emerged as viable travel time collection technology
Open standard, allows for off-the-shelf equipment
Detection range limited to about 328 feet (100 meters)
Less expensive than many other options
Flexible installation
Some potential privacy concerns
Detection technology relies on drivers' use of Bluetooth-enabled devices
“The whole country is doing this,” Paul Misticawi, vice president of public sector sales for traffic data software company.

Bluetooth detectors will soon be able to identify everyone

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the acts of a government terrified of their own people.

And in terms of surveilling ME?!?

The question would be, why the heck?!?

I'm a Christian pacifist activist, and the choral director of a small local church choir; what "threat level", please, do I present to this government?!?

The logical, short answer would be, zero.

But because I post to this blog, and work through information as logically and intelligently as I can, under the NDAA, I can be imprisoned indefinitely without due process whatsoever.

And as Shakespeare said, "Aye, there's the rub."

When logic itself becomes criminalized, the society in which this is happening is in deep kim chee. (Here in the Islands, that's literally a sour cabbage dish, but it means being in deep trouble.)

MICHIGAN GOES TOTAL POLICE STATE WITH ROADSIDE SALIVA CHECK POINTS

The Michigan State Police is working on plans to establish a pilot program for roadside drug testing, a spokeswoman said.

A new law instructs the state police to pick five counties where it will run a one-year pilot program for saliva-based testing to check drivers for drugs like marijuana, heroin and cocaine.

“We expect the counties to be finalized this summer with a pilot to begin sometime later in the year,” MSP spokeswoman Shanon Banner said.

The five counties will be determined based on criteria including: the number of impaired driving crashes;the number of impaired drivers arrested; and the number of Drug Recognition Experts (DREs) trained in the county, she said.

Attorney Neil Rockind, founder of Southfield-based criminal defense law firm Rockind Law, opposed the legislation he said would set a “dangerous precedent” for Michigan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I can understand that we don't want drugged or drunk drivers on the road; however, this is a blatant, in your face, violation of the 4th Amendment.

These kits cost around $150.00 per testing unit.

I have to wonder just what kind of "relationship" the drug testing manufacturer who won this contract has with the State of Michigan.

What can the State of Michigan prove about the reliability of such testing kits?!?

And what happens to someone who refuses to take the test?!? Are they imprisoned for "failure to comply" with a demand for such testing?!?

FRENCH GOVERNMENT ORDERS DESTRUCTION OF NICE ATTACK CCTV FOOTAGE OFFICIALLY TO PREVENT LEAKS

An urgent legal requisition was sent to urban supervision center of Nice Wednesday, July 20. The Paris evokes a desire to “avoid the uncontrolled dissemination of these images.”

Panic and misunderstanding for mayor of Nice. Wednesday at 11 am, the Anti-Terrorism Sub-Directorate (SDAT) sent to agents who manage video surveillance of the city requisition citing Articles 53 and L706-24 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and Article R642-1 of the Penal Code erasure asking them “complete” 24 hours of images from six cameras named, numbered, but also of all the scenes from the beginning of the attack that took place on the promenade des Anglais, on the night of July 14 .

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight; the footage is being destroyed because it does not support the French government "narrative" about this having been a true terror attack, rather than road rage by someone who was on mind-bending, psychoactive SSRIS for depression after his wife left him?!?

Michigan Goes Total Police State With Roadside Saliva Check Points

The Michigan State Police is working on plans to establish a pilot program for roadside drug testing, a spokeswoman said. A new law instructs the state police to pick five counties where it will run a one-year pilot program for saliva-based testing to check drivers for drugs like marijuana, heroin and cocaine. “We expect the counties to be finalized this summer with a pilot to begin sometime later in the year,” MSP spokeswoman Shanon Banner said.

FLASHBACK - John K. Vance; Uncovered LSD Project at CIA

Code-named MKULTRA (and pronounced m-k-ultra), the project Mr. Vance uncovered was the brainchild of CIA Director Allen Dulles, who was intrigued by reports of mind-control techniques allegedly conducted by Soviet, Chinese and North Korean agents on U.S. prisoners of war during the Korean War. The CIA wanted to use similar techniques on its own POWs and perhaps use LSD or other mind-bending substances on foreign leaders, including Cuba's Fidel Castro a few years after the project got underway in 1953.

Heading MKULTRA was a CIA chemist named Sidney Gottlieb. In congressional testimony, Gottlieb, who died in 1999, acknowledged that the agency had administered LSD to as many as 40 unwitting subjects, including prison inmates and patrons of brothels set up and run by the agency. At least one participant died when he jumped out of a 10th-floor window in a hotel; others claimed to have suffered serious psychological damage.

Learning What It’s Like To Be Serfs? : Becky Akers on cops

And only ten of those 31 fatalities were black. Not that it matters—but let’s repudiate the notion that black Americans alone die from serficide. This tragedy affects all of us, regardless of color.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Science captured by the US rogue state; demoted to bullshitting about research, and silenced in real solutions for a brighter future (10 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” ~ Dr. Richard Horton, Editor of The Lancet (world’s top medical journal for published research)

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” ~ Dr. Marcia Angell, Editor in Chief, New England Journal of Medicine

Gun Violence, Yeah, Uh-Huh, Right

If there are to be more “background checks”, they need to happen with United States government weapons transactions and covert operations. “They can’t be covert if everyone knows!” Exactly! So we need background checks not on us, but on this cabal of lunatics we call the government. They’re the ones doling out weapons to people that then created a civil war that spilled into our own streets twice now. Oh, those were Americans and not Syrians? Excuse me, but the government was throwing muskets into the hands of Irish immigrants right off the boat in our own Civil War. And they didn’t even know what the war was about half the time! So don’t give me this crap that those two attacks were not the Syrian Civil War spilling over into the lap of the government that helped provoke it.

Hillary’s Campaign Is In Big Trouble

Democratic primary voters, who chose Hillary Clinton because they believed she was the most electable Democrat against Donald Trump, may be in for a rude awakening. They may have picked the least electable Democrat>>>
***
Very simply, the Clinton campaign is in big trouble. And Hillary seems on the verge of compounding the problem by choosing a boring, corporate centrist running mate>>>
***
I really don’t want to be writing a “woulda, coulda, shoulda” column about why Bernie Sanders would have been more electable. At this stage I’d rather be making the argument that, for all her political and character flaws, Hillary is still preferable to Donald Trump and that progressives should be doing everything possible to prevent Trump’s election, which means critically supporting Hillary. But there’s no avoiding the painful truth that Hillary is in danger of losing.

US & Clinton Beyond the Law-Catherine Austin Fitts

Financial expert and former Assistant Secretary of Housing, Catherine Austin Fitts, says the U.S. government’s actions with Hillary Clinton means it is more lawless than ever. Fitts explains, “The entire country now looks like Arkansas . . . we’ve all turned into Mena, Arkansas, now. It’s pretty tragic. I have watched for two decades while 80% of the federal budget and federal credit has been run outside the Constitution and the laws related to financial management. I have never seen anything as blatant and outrageous as Loretta Lynch, prior to Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI, meeting with her disbarred husband, who is either the husband of or the target of a criminal investigation, and basically briefing him, I am assuming and what I believe on what Hillary needs to know, so she can skate the (FBI) interview. What the President, Lynch and Comey don’t want is the investigative team recommending to indict. . . .

Julia Davis, a former Customs and Border Protections Officer, was falsely declared a domestic terrorist and subjected to retaliatory efforts against her by the Department of Homeland Security. Her home was raided by a 27 man “special response team.” She was twice falsely arrested and imprisoned, but later exonerated. She is now a national security expert and has put out a historical documentary titled Top Priority: The Terror Within. She claims that the War On Terror by the Department of Homeland Security is a charade and that the agency seems to be targeting concerned American patriots.

Roger Stone, author of ‘Jeb And The Bush Crime Family’, in an interview with Alex Jones, revealed the strategies behind the Cruz campaign, and how initially he was impressed by Cruz until he realized Cruz could never be the leader he claims he will be.

Is it possible that Ted Cruz had something to do with mandatory Obama care scheme, has close relations to the Bush family, and has a wife, who is a member of the council of foreign relations, also tied in with Goldman Sachs?

According to Stone, this is the kind of stuff you’re more than likely to find when researching Cruz.

Police in North Miami, Florida, responded to an emergency 911 call of a man with a gun who was threatening to commit suicide — but behavioral therapist Charles Kinsey told WSVN-TV he believes the caller likely mistook the autistic patient’s toy truck for a firearm.

Maura Healey steps up ban on military-looking rifles

Attorney General Maura Healey stepped up the ban on military-looking rifles yesterday, prompting licensed gun enthusiasts to flood gun shops on what they believed might be the last day to buy AR-style guns here.

Healey issued a notice to all gun sellers and manufacturers in Massachusetts banning guns which appear like the Colt AR-15 and the Kalishnikov AK-47, but have been altered by manufacturers to conform to Massachusetts’ ban on adjustable stocks, high-capacity magazines and other features. An estimated 10,000 so-called “copycat” assault weapons were sold in Massachusetts last year alone, Healey’s office said.

The tourists from Chile told NBC 4 New York they had posed with the topless performer in the newly designated activity zone at Times Square -- the only place where performers and costumed characters are allowed to ask for money.

The woman and her managers apparently were unhappy with the dollar tip from Francisco Vistoso and his brother-in-law.

"They came to us saying it was too little," Vistoso told NBC 4 in Spanish. "They started insulting [my brother-in-law] and then the woman came and attacked me."

Vistoso was left bleeding after the attack.

Caregiver shot by police after toy truck mistaken for gun

A man is recovering in the hospital after police may have mistaken a toy for a gun, causing a big misunderstanding.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the reported shooting, located right by a group home near Northeast 14th Avenue and 127th Street, Monday, at around 5:30 p.m.

Witnesses and the man who was shot, Charles Kinsey, said that officials made a big mistake in this case. Kinsey’s attorney, Hilton Napoleon said that his client works with the disabled for a living and was assisting an autistic man who had a toy truck in his hand. North Miami Police may have believed the toy was a weapon, and that’s when police fired shots, hitting the caregiver in the leg.

Cop Enters Wrong Home, Murders Family Dog in Front of Children at 5-year-old’s Birthday

Gruesome. Infuriating. Tragic. Incompetent. Cowardly. Murderous. These are a few of the words that come to mind in regards to the recent puppycide by an Oklahoma cop.
“There’s something wrong with Opie,” said Vickie Malone’s 5-year-old son Eli, during his birthday party — after a Wynnewood police officer just shot their beloved family dog.

According to Vickie Malone, she’d just taken the party inside to serve cake and ice cream when they heard a gunshot.

As parents and kids ran outside to see what was going on, the cop fired two more rounds into Opie with his AR-15 as horrified partygoers watched in disbelief.

“He [Opie] was over here kicking and gasping for air,” Vickie said.
The incompetent cop was serving a 10-year-old warrant on a man who did not live there.

L.A. Times Suggests Military Coup Against President Trump

Jamie Kirchick, writing in the Los Angeles Times, asks readers to imagine a military coup against a future President Donald Trump — and argues why one would be necessary.

Kirchick cites the example of the recent failed coup in Turkey as a source of inspiration:

Americans viewing the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey as some exotic foreign news story — the latest, violent yet hardly unusual political development to occur in a region constantly beset by turmoil — should pause to consider that the prospect of similar instability would not be unfathomable in this country if Donald Trump were to win the presidency.

Kirchick goes on to argue that Trump is a nascent authoritarian, whose illegal military orders — such as torturing terrorists — the military would be required to ignore, and then resist by force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at globalresearch.ca:

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying: The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security. (O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense. I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror. No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents. Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.” “I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.” She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.” She endorses using cluster bombs, toxic agents and nuclear weapons in US war theaters. She calls them deterrents that “keep the peace.” She was one of only six Democrat senators opposed to blocking deployment of untested missile defense systems – first-strike weapons entirely for offense.

So, there you have it, on the record: Hillary Clinton is prepared to go to war with Iran (and most probably Russia, whose military and civilian leadership have all vowed to protect it militarily.)

Wall Street Angry that Donald Trump Says “Restore Glass-Steagall Act”

What produced the 2008 crash was the Clinton-Republican Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, named after the three conservative Republicans (Phil Gramm, Jim Leach, and Tom Bliley) who wrote it. Sanford Weill, then merely the head of Travelers Insurance, was a financial empire-builder who wanted his firm to buy Citibank, so as to produce the first financial conglomerate, Citigroup — a merger which the Glass-Steagall Act would have blocked from happening. Weill’s Clinton-Administration friends Robert J. Rubin and Lawrence Summers had no trouble convincing their boss to say yes to Gramm-Leach-Bliley, though this would toss out the core of Democrat FDR’s lasting heritage and restore the cause of the Great Depression: Wall Street’s gambling with depositors’ savings — gambling with assets that are so crucial the government would be politically compelled to backstop to prevent bankrupting tens of millions of people, savers who had made no error.

Judge Makes Stunning Ruling In Bundy Case

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that without the benefit of a public hearing, U.S. Federal Judge Peggy Leen has issued an order ruling that no transcripts, reports or witness statements of any kind may be disclosed by defense teams for all 19 defendants in the 2014 armed standoff between Cliven Bundy’s camp and the FBI.

Leen made her decision Friday, citing potential death threats against prosecutors as justification.

Leen continued saying that a “common law or First Amendment right” for the press and the public to access the government’s pretrial evidence does not exist, though all information obtained through “open sources” such as the internet or social media would be accessible.

Ammon Bundy’s attorney, Dan Hill, was not pleased with the judge’s decision.

So, in Judge Leen's courtroom, the First Amendment to the Constitution does not exist, with regard to the government's pre-trial evidence.

I have to ask: why?!?

Liberal GQ Magazine Writer on Mother of Benghazi Victim: ‘I would like to beat her to death’

Liberals lost their minds when Pat Smith spoke at the GOP convention last night. They can’t stand hearing someone who lost her son (and was lied to by Hillary Clinton about why it happened) telling the truth.

A liberal writer for GQ Magazine named Bethlehem Shoals even said on Twitter that he wanted to beat her to death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An apology followed, but it had all the fake sincerity of something said by a really bad snake oil salesman.

Should Hillary get elected, one of her first acts as President will be to establish her very own "Ministry of Truth", which will ruthlessly persecute anyone with even a slightly different narrative than her own.

She will order "belief and allegiance" to anything she says, no matter how much of a lie it may be, and declare any other response "treason", to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

And I am certain that Bethlehem Shoals will be on her "short list" as the Department Director for that, having tweeted that he wanted to beat Pat Smith to death (for telling the truth).

Bernie Sanders earned more pledged delegates than Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries and now a long awaited lawsuit has finally been filed in Ohio alleging that systematic and coordinated election fraud stole the presidential nomination from Sanders.

Filed by the Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity, the lawsuit presents evidence of statistically impossible differences between exit polls and electronic vote totals.

Gallup Economic Confidence Index plunges while stock market near record: Stock Market decoupled from financial well being of average Americans.

Gallup releases an Economic Confidence Index which should reflect the overall sentiment of Americans as it pertains to the economy. With the stock market near record highs and the housing bubble market soaring, you would expect average Americans to be smiling from ear to ear with glee. But when you click on over to Gallup, the chart looks downright gloomy like finding out you just failed a midterm exam you studied so hard for. While Gallup may be stumped and scratching their head as to why this divergence is there, I feel we have touched upon a few points as to why this is occurring. First, half of Americans don’t even own one stock. Next, you have many U.S. companies making large profits abroad. Good for the company but that doesn’t translate necessarily into a better financial position for most Americans. Housing values being inflated only keeps Americans from buying as reflected in a generationally low homeownership rate.

US PUBLIC EDUCATION: BULLSHIT TO TRAIN STUPEFIED WORK ANIMALS. PHYSICAL EDUCATION FAILS TO DECLARE US NATIONAL EMERGENCY OF UNFIT, UNHAPPY HUMANS IN BODY AND MIND

This 11-part series addresses an overarching fact about public education: its design of intentional curricular lies of omission and commission to keep our children and the general public powerless, relatively stupid, and controlled work animals.

Importantly, I do not blame education professionals working in good-faith effort to produce high-quality learning from our children; public education exists in a matrix of control for ongoing empires that I’ll explain in detail within the series’ sections. That said, anyone truly educated in one’s field gradually discovers that public education is a ridiculous substitute for what’s most important to teach and learn. This is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious when pointed to, with this paper’s content including factual assertions that no counterarguments exist outside of shallow and misleading bullshit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core does a brilliant job of making kids think they are being educated, when they are really being indoctrinated to believe particular narratives which are useful to them being completely controlled by a government that cares absolutely not about their futures.
