THE VATICAN HAS PAID CLOSE TO $4 BILLION TO SETTLE CHILD MOLESTATION LAWSUITS

The reality of child molestation by the Roman Catholic Church has surfaced time and time again, and yet, somehow, it continues to happen. If you watched the movie Spotlight, perhaps you have an idea of just how things are going down. But let’s break it down to date.

While you can’t put a price on the innocence of a child, you can put a price on just how much the Roman Catholic Church has paid out in lawsuits over the never-ending epidemic of child molestation wreaking havoc in its ranks.

According to Jack and Diane Ruhl of the National Catholic Reporter, who decided to research this particular topic, since 1950, the Vatican has spent a disgusting $3,994,797,060.10. That’s nearly $4 billion to keep things hush hush. That number may even be a bit conservative, as we cannot know for sure the agreed upon “under the table” amount.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My Methodist Church partners with our local Catholic church in a couple of food programs, and I really enjoy, and respect, my Catholic friends who are working selflessly to make sure kids and food insecure families on public assistance, get the nutrition they need.

Having said that, there is a long-standing, institutional, and cultural, illness in the Catholic church which must be addressed.

Celibacy was introduced into church doctrine for priests in order to curb the incredible "excesses" and appetites of some of the early church fathers; unfortunately, for a number of them, it pushed their sexuality into a covert abuse of children, who would be terrified into not telling their adult care-takers, for fear of being condemned to hell by speaking out.

I am probably going to get a lot of flack for this, but to cure the problem, most likely, the Catholic Church will need to rescind its doctrine of celibacy, and insist that all of their priests, bishops, and even popes be married!!

MEET THE REAL LORDS OF WAR: HOW THE WORLD GOES SHOPPING FOR DEATH

There are movies, and then there is real life.

Global military spending rose to $1.68 trillion in 2015, making up about 2.3 percent of the world’s gross domestic product, according to Bloomberg. To document a small portion of it, over the past four years, photographer Guillaume Herbaut has been traveling to Jordan, Qatar, France, and India to look beyond the glossy veneer of the world's weapons markets.

This is what he found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you look at American society today, with the understanding of just how much of this country's money is spent on war (50%, that we know about), the horrific, grinding poverty in which so many in this country live, coupled with the "sedatives" of mass entertainment and other very real drugs with which to mask the symptoms of our legitimate frustration and despair, you start to see the truth of the situation in the United States.

We have become a "deep-state controlled" dictatorship, which is committed to commandeering resources around the globe to which this government has absolutely no moral right; making sure that they are controlled by the national and multi-national corporations which contribute to political campaigns; and that those resources are sold only in US dollars.

There is no real "choice" for the American people, when that Kabuki-style, bizzaro-world national election comes up every 4 years here; we generally merely have the illusion of choice. By the time candidates are "vetted" by the corporations which support them, and have the assurances that these perpetual wars for profits and resources are going to continue, no matter how detrimental they will be to average American citizens, those are the candidates with which we are left.

But this year might be different.

In our Democratic Candidate, Hillary Clinton, you see the worst of establishment excess, a sociopathic millionaire warmonger, with a desire for power and money driving everything she does.

She doesn't care at all for the people of this country; only the power and money the office of the President will bring her.

And if you don't believe me, take a good hard look at the countries which payed the Clinton Foundation for special financial opportunities.

For example, take a look at the Middle Eastern and North African countries which contributed to the Clinton Foundation:

Countries Clinton Foundation Accepted money from, and what they do to their LGBT citizens

But that's not all. What else do they have in common?!? The bad news just keeps on coming, folks, and is displayed here:
Prevalence of Female Genital Mutilation by Country

Do the correlation; every North African and Middle Eastern country from which the Clinton Foundation took money jails, castrates, or executes its LGBT citizens, and allows the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.

As a Christian, and an equity feminist, I have to shake my head, and wonder; how in the name of heaven did Bill and Hillary accept money from these countries when they had to know, absolutely, these countries still permit such barbarities?!?

The short answer is, the Clintons took the money from these countries because they have absolutely no morality whatsoever.
Money wins campaigns, and where the money came from was of absolutely no concern.

Is this the kind of President you want running this country in 2017?!?

Then, we have, at Stage Right, Donald Trump, who did what many people thought was unthinkable several months ago; he won the Republican nomination for President.

He's absolutely not a career politician, which I think this country needs right now.

Do I agree with everything the man says?!?

No.

But the two things he has going for him are understanding how to make a business run successfully, and the smarts to be quickly and intelligently tutored in what he does not know, in terms of military and geopolitical issues.

Although Trump may, at times, appear to be a rather blunt instrument, particularly with his off the cuff remarks, in a bizzare way, this election, he is the peace candidate. He has stated, for the record, that he wants better relations with Russia.

Clinton, on the other hand, has stated, for the record, that she wants to find a justification to attack Iran, to make her Israeli handlers happy.

So just let that sink in for a moment, and ask yourself: do I want the candidate who will conjure up more wars to make her corporate, banking, and Israeli "owners" happy, or do I want a candidate who is talking about peace through commerce?!?

This could be the most important Presidential choice the American people have had in some time now; please make it count!!.

TERRORIST-FIGHTING LICENSE PLATE READERS JUST MOBILE REVENUE GENERATORS CRUISING POOR NEIGHBORHOODS

We know what automatic license plate readers are good for: collecting massive amounts (billions of records) of plate/location data housed by private companies and accessed by law enforcement for indefinite periods of time. What we don't know is how effective ALPRs are at fighting/investigating crime.

George Joseph at Citylab has done some digging into the effectiveness of license plate readers and hasn't found much that justifies the expense, much less the constant compilation of plate info.

Last month, the Bay Area’s UASI released ALPR data from the Central Marin Police Authority showing that only .02% of the nearly 4 million license plates tracked over October of 2015 through April of this year resulted in matches to any police “hot list” databases. The data indicate that zero “known or suspected terrorists” have been tracked using ALPRs, and that only a handful of other matches related to other hot-list criteria.

OBAMA'S OPERATION CHOKE POINT IS "UNBRIDLED ABUSE OF EXECUTIVE POWER, COMPLETELY OUTSIDE THE RULE OF LAW"

In an earlier article I touched on the withering attack on the 2nd Amendment that has subsided to a “dull throb” for the moment. A large portion of that is “Operation Choke Point,” the regulatory “assault” instituted by the Federal Government to force the banking industry to deny services to industries, not on the basis of illegality, but incorrectness as judged by the administration.

This cabal is represented by the Office of the Comptroller of Currency, the Federal Reserve, and the FDIC under the “ringmaster” of the Department of Justice. The aforementioned agencies have regulated the banking industry by using their positions as directed by the administration to sever businesses from their connections with the banks. Specifically, the firearms industry, to include (in order) first firearms manufacturers, and the complementary industries that are synergistic with those manufacturers, namely ammunition manufacturers and accessory products for firearms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cancerous illegality of these acts is absolutely appalling; and unfortunately, it is very to undo such edicts, once they have taken the form of established protocol.

Obama's Operation Choke Point Is "Unbridled Abuse Of Executive Power, Completely Outside The Rule Of Law"

These procedures completely subvert rule of law. The reputation risk concept enables these regulators to force financial institutions to close any account and cease business with any business they deem to be either “improper” or “unsavory.” This is a method to deny the businesses the financial support structure they are dependent upon to conduct their affairs and eventually to force the businesses to close. If the bank refuses to turn on the client, then the bureaucracies will attack the bank and punish it. Some of the largest targeted sectors are pawn shops, tobacco outlets, gun dealers, and check-cashing services. There are reasons these businesses are listed as “unsavory.”

Assange admits that Seth a staffer from the DNC who was "wantonly" gunned down in DC was a source of leaked DNC voice and electronic mail. This is very messy and very silly

Rethinking The Cold War — Paul Craig Roberts

Rethinking The Cold War
and the new one

Paul Craig Roberts

The Cold War began during the Truman administration and lasted through the Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter administrations and was ended in Reagan’s second term when Reagan and Gorbachev came to an agreement that the conflict was dangerous, expensive, and pointless.

The Cold War did not cease for long—only from the last of Reagan’s second term and the four years of George H. W. Bush’s term. In the 1990s President Clinton restarted the Cold War by breaking America’s promise not to expend NATO into Eastern Europe. George W. Bush heated up the renewed Cold War by pulling the US out of the Anti-ABM Treaty, and Obama has made the war hotter with irresponsible rhetoric and by placing US missiles on Russia’s border and overthrowing the Ukrainian government.

The twilight of NATO

by Thierry Meyssan
The history of NATO and its current activities enables us to understand how the West has woven its lies and why it is now a prisoner of them. The elements contained in this articles are shocking, but it is impossible to deny the facts. The only other solution is to cling to the lies and persist in hanging on.

Yes! The System Is Rigged!

If 2016 taught us anything, it is that if the establishment’s hegemony is imperiled, it will come together in ferocious solidarity — for the preservation of their perks, privileges, and power.All the elements of that establishment — corporate, cultural, political, media — are today issuing an ultimatum to Middle America:Trump is unacceptable.

You want Trump out? How do we get you out?
But if Hillary Clinton takes power, and continues America on her present course, which a majority of Americans rejected in the primaries, there is going to a bad moon rising.

And the new protesters in the streets will not be overprivileged children from Ivy League campuses.

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable,” said John F. Kennedy.

Hillary, Trump, and War with Russia: The Goddamdest Stupid Idea I Have Ever Heard, and I Have Lived in Washington

A good reason to vote for Trump, a very good reason whatever his other intentions, is that he does not want a war with Russia. Hillary and her elite ventriloquists threaten just that. Note the anti-Russian hysteria coming from her and her remoras.

Such a war would be yet another example of the utter control of America by rich insiders. No normal American has anything at all to gain by such a war. And no normal American has the slightest influence over whether such a war takes place, except by voting for Trump. The military has become entirely the plaything of unaccountable elites.

A martial principle of great wisdom says that military stupidity comes in three grades: Ordinarily stupid; really, really, really stupid; and fighting Russia. Think Charles XII at Poltava, Napoleon after Borodino, Adolf and Kursk.

Tax Returns: Clintons Cleared $10.6 Million In 2015

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton released her tax returns on Friday, showing that she and her husband Bill made $10.6 million in 2015, after taxes.
The 40 page pdf released by the campaign shows that the Clintons payed $3.6 million in taxes, a tax rate of about 34 percent.

The Clintons donated 9.8 percent of the adjusted gross income to charity.

That's a log of dough, all right; no wonder Hillary cannot relate to the rest of us, except her brother and sister 1 percenters!!

$2 billion Clinton Foundation: 10% for aid, ~50% looted by Bill & Hillary. ‘Missing/deleted’ e-mails will prove Hillary sold US State Dept ‘favors’ for Clinton Foundation ‘donations.’ Short video summaries, 64-minute full documentary

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Since 2001, the Clinton Foundation has raised ~$2 billion for “charity,” but with tax records revealing only 10% of money went for programs, with apparently ~50% going directly to Bill and Hillary Clinton (and here, here).

A 35-second summary from Judge Jeanine Pirro; full 5-minute interview:

Economic Hitman John Perkins’ 2-minutes of context on this type of neo-colonialism capitalism:

Clinton committed obvious federal felonies from operating a private government through her personal e-mail while Secretary of State. She lies continuously about these facts, including that she received and sent classified and confidential information. The “missing” and deleted e-mails are likely to show her trading State Department favors for Clinton Foundation donations; a primary motivation to have a private e-mail server in order to keep these communications secret.

Warning about the consequences of a truth-free society

Was This Wartime Technology Really Deployed Against Journalists Inside the DNC?

Technology developed to jam cellphones during the Iraq War may be getting deployed against journalists reporting on protests against the political establishment in the United States.

While police and government surveillance of protests, including monitoring of cellphone use, is well-documented, efforts to block signals at protests remains an oft-repeated, but never proven, rumor.

It may be impossible to definitively prove that authorities are using cellphone “jamming” technology, but journalists working with both mainstream and independent media reported unusual difficulties accessing the internet during recent protests at the gates of the Democratic National Convention, consistent with the effects this very real technology could have.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, THIS is what the DNC thinks about the First Amendment; something to be broken and battered with high tech, if the narrative they are spewing has absolutely no relationship with reality.

Negative Rates for the People Arrive as German Bank Gives In

When the European Central Bank introduced a negative interest rate on lenders’ deposits two years ago, few thought things would ever go this far.
This week, a German cooperative savings bank in the Bavarian village of Gmund am Tegernsee -- population 5,767 -- said it’ll start charging retail customers to hold their cash. From September, for savings in excess of 100,000 euros ($111,710), the community’s Raiffeisen bank will take back 0.4 percent. That’s a direct pass through of the current level of the ECB’s negative deposit rate.
“With our business clients there’s been a negative rate for quite some time, so why should it be any different for private individuals with big balances?,” Josef Paul, a board member of the bank, said by phone on Thursday. “As it looks today, charges on deposits won’t be extended to customers with lower amounts” than 100,000 euros, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial financial "canary in the coal mine; look to see other banks, both inside, and outside of Germany, start to adopt this trend.

And no wonder banks now want to do away with cash; because with these negative rates, customers are going to look for other places than banks to stash their cash.

The purpose of a savings account USED to be to see a little extra added to that account on a monthly basis; now, that is no longer the case.

MSNBC Wary of ‘October Surprise’ With Release of Potentially Damning Clinton E-mails

Though the liberal co-host is an avid Clinton supporter, Mika Brzezinski has been frustrated with Clinton’s rudimentary apologies for the recurring e-mail scandals. She pressed Bob Woodward on whether or not they should brace themselves for an untimely “October surprise.”

BRZEZINSKI: So, Bob Woodward, the Wall Street Journal has an editorial today saying that Hillary Clinton has left herself wide open for an October surprise. From what has been uncovered so far and from the answers that she has provided so far, how realistic is the possibility of an October surprise or some sort of damning revelation?

BOB WOODWARD: Well, it may come in September or this month in August. If you talk to anybody in the security business, talk to somebody in the white house recently who knows the reality. Everything is hacked. There is no security. And, so, it's not just e-mails from the DNC or the private server that Hillary Clinton had. It is everywhere

Will Henry Kissinger Endorse Hillary Clinton?

They’ve had the same job, Clinton and Kissinger. Both have a lot of haters, yet have been elevated to the highest corridors of power. And both can be objected to in theory, but somehow seem to be unstoppable where it really counts. Unstoppable and unaccountable; neither Kissinger nor Clinton has ever been punished for the blood on their hands, and there’s quite a bit on both.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sincerely hope that such an endorsement will be the absolute, total KOD (Kiss of Death) for Clinton's campaign. Please remember: I am a Christian pacifist who doesn't want to see ANYONE hurt.

I do, however, want to see Clinton's campaign lurch, stutter, and implode to such a degree that she cannot possibly come back against Trump in November, and with the most peaceful, legal of means possible.

A criminal indictment, perhaps, or a leak so bad that she cannot recover from it?! Or, perchance, this endorsement?!? Those would be good.

But I hope that such an endorsement does put her out to pasture, as a potential presidential candidate, for the rest of a very long and healthy life.

Spies-for-Hire Now at War in Syria

Every day at 5 p.m., the Pentagon releases a list of that day’s contracts worth more than $7 million. On July 27, buried in the daily email was an eye-catching detail: Military contractors would be working inside Syria alongside the roughly 300 U.S. troops already deployed there.

This appears to be the first time the Pentagon has publicly acknowledged that private contractors are also playing a role in the fight against the so-called Islamic State inside Syria, and it’s one more signal that the U.S. military is deepening its involvement in the fate of the country.

The contract announcement said Six3 Intelligence Solutions—a private intelligence company recently acquired by CACI International—won a $10 million no-bid Army contract to provide “intelligence analysis services.” According to the Pentagon, the work will be completed over the next year in Germany, Italy and, most notably, Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember that CACI has recently been dispatched to Syria as well, and as reported at theinternationalreporter.org:

During the occupation of Iraq U.S. intelligence and military services contracted CACI International Inc, a U.S. company in Virginia, to provide “intelligence services” in Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad. CACI employees were directly involved in torturing Iraqi prisoners. by Moon Of Alabama, Global Research: Isis_interrogation_training_isisarmyjordan2-s The U.S. army recently contracted CACI for “intelligence analysis services” in Syria. The Syrian government has not invited or otherwise allowed U.S. military or its contractors to enter the country. Any such activities infringe on Syria’s sovereignty and are thereby in violation of international law. The re-engagement of such a controversial company for services in the area boosts the recruitment appeal of the Islamic State. A recent U.S. Department of Defense Contracts Press Announcement (Release No: CR-143-16, July 27, 2016) lists under the rubric “Army”: Six3 Intelligence Solutions Inc., McLean, Virginia, was awarded a $ 9,578,964 modification (P00001) to contract W564KV-16-C-0058 for intelligence analysis services. Work will be performed in Germany, Italy, and Syria, with an estimated completion date of June 29, 2017.

It would appear to me that the hiring of firms like this is engineered to keep the conflict festering, rather than ratchet down tensions in the region.

But of course, the military/industrial complex loves the concept of perpetual wars; it guarantees perpetual profits, no matter how many American military get killed or wounded.

ISIS Terrorist Tells Feds He Has Jihadist Brothers in Mexico Confirming JW Reports

An ISIS operative arrested and criminally charged in Ohio this month has confirmed that the terrorist group has cells in Mexico, according to federal authorities. Judicial Watch has reported this for years, documenting it in a series of articles as part of an ongoing investigation on the connection between drug cartels, corruption and terrorism on the southern border. In fact, last spring Judicial Watch broke a story about an ISIS camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this report is true, it is a cause for very deep concern here in the US.

But because the Federal government has such a track record for lying on such a consistent basis, how do we really know whether or not it is a "setup", engineered to create fear to use against the American people, should an "incident" happen here at home?

IF an "incident" does happen, and if you believe the official story, it confirms the failure of the Obama/Hillary immigration policy, and vindicates Donald Trump's call for secure borders.

Such an "incident" would also underscore the complete and epic failure of the NSA, CIA, FBI, DHS, and TSA to protect America from terror.

The $47 Billion U.S. Emergency Response Network That’s Already Obsolete

FirstNet was envisioned as a way for police and firefighters to communicate with one another in the wake of 9/11. But four years later, it’s still not up and running.

The prize for the most wasteful post-9/11 initiative arguably should go to FirstNet—a whole new agency set up to provide a telecommunications system exclusively for firefighters, police, and other first responders. They would communicate on bandwidth worth billions of dollars in the commercial market but now reserved by the Federal Communications Commission for FirstNet.

FirstNet is in such disarray that 15 years after the problem it is supposed to solve was identified, it is years from completion—and it may never get completed at all. According to the GAO, estimates of its cost range from $12 billion to $47 billion, even as advances in digital technology seem to have eliminated the need to spend any of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What a complete boondoggle, and waste of taxpayer money!!

And yet, for the US government, such actions are absolutely normal and "business as usual".

CENTCOM WHISTLEBLOWERS: OBAMA DISTORTING ISIS INTELLIGENCE

U.S. Central Command intelligence reports were altered to hide poor progress against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, a congressional joint task force announced.

Fifty intelligence analysts sparked the investigation by filing a whistleblower complaint about superiors changing information on their products.

Republican chairmen of the House Armed Services Committee, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Subcommittee on Defense of the House Appropriations Committee, led by GOP Reps. Ken Calvert (Calif.), Mike Pompeo (Kan.), and Brad Wenstrup (Ohio) established the joint task force, the Hill reported Thursday.

“What happened at CENTCOM is unacceptable — our warfighters suffer when bad analysis is presented to senior policymakers,” Rep. Ken Calvert said. “We must continue our efforts until we fix it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From a policy perspective, this process is somewhat akin to a radiologist touching up a patient's x-ray, so the cancer doesn't look as bad as it really is.

And having a Commander in Chief who is so allergic to the truth of the situation on the ground that senior military officials believe that they have to "cook" the information presented to that Commander in Chief, is a dangerous place for a country to be.

Unfortunately, the United States has been in that place for nearly the last 8 years.

FLASHBACK - Hillary Clinton camp now paying online trolls to attack anyone who disparages her online 

Many moons ago, David Brock, now the head of a Hillary Clinton Super PAC, used every resource available to ruin the life of Anita Hill and anyone who supported her. He would lie, cheat, and blatantly misrepresent facts if it meant getting Clarence Thomas through the Supreme Court nomination process.

Brock openly admitted it.

Now, it appears Brock, who is no doubt great at what he does, is using his same old tools, but for a new cause in a new technological era.

As head of the Correct The Record Super PAC for Hillary Clinton, David Brock has launched something called Barrier Breakers — an online mob of paid trolls designed to attack any and every person who says one cross word about Hillary Clinton on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, or elsewhere.

WIKILEAKS Proves TRUMP IS RIGHT: Hacked Emails Include Info On Hillary’s Arming of Jihadists, Including ISIS

Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke to the National Association of Home Builders on Thursday morning.

Trump repeated his line that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama created ISIS.
He even went further and said Hillary Clinton was the MVP of ISIS.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew that the US was sending arms from Libya to Syria back in 2011, a year before the Benghazi consulate attacks.

Hillary Clinton denied she knew about the weapons shipments during public testimony (under oath) in early 2013 after the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Mysterious "Computer Glitch" Conveniently Cancels Hotel Rooms For Fed Protesters At Jackson Hole Event

Over the last two years, the Fed Up Campaign has routinely brought a coalition of low-wage workers to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to protest Federal Reserve hike rates amidst the unequal “economic recovery.” The Jackson Hole event is invite only, closed to the public and costs $1,000 per person to attend.

It appears that this year, Janet Yellen and company went out of their way to ensure there would be no such protests diverting the attention of the nation's most esteemed economists.

According to a formal complaint filed by Ady Barkan, the Campaign Director for the Fed Up Campaign, to the DOJ and the Department of the Interior, “In early May, members of our coalition made three separate reservations for a total of 13 rooms at the Lodge for the nights of August 24, 25, and 26. We paid for the rooms. We requested and paid for rollaway beds that would allow us to sleep three guests to a room, for a total of 39 guest accommodations.

Some great leaders had mental illness - it may have helped

Some of America's greatest leaders in history have had mental health problems and it may have helped in times of crisis, psychiatrists and psychologists said.

Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, along with Civil War generals Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., all struggled with mental health issues, often depression, said Tufts University psychiatry professor Dr. Nassir Ghaemi, who has written about historical figures' psychological issues. He also points to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and India's Mahatma Gandhi as major historical figures who thrived while having emotional issues.

"Some of those mental health problems can, in fact, make for greatness," said Katherine Nordal, a psychologist who heads the American Psychological Association's professional practice program. Other professionals agreed.

Instead of exposing her as unfit to serve, media scoundrels express one-sided support, focusing instead on bashing Trump, the most irresponsible denunciation of a presidential aspirant in US history.

Judicial Watch (JW) is a conservative watchdog organization, “promot(ing) transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.”

On August 9 and 10, it released three new damning reports on Hillary Clinton. One involved 296 pages of State Department records – including “44 email exchanges…not previously” disclosed to the department, raising the number to 171 – besides tens of thousands of others deleted to avoid disclosure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, that Clinton belief in her "moral imperative" to lie to the American People, and the world, as part of her "divine narcocratic" right to ascend to the presidency of this country, makes her unfit to lead, period, end of discussion.

NYT Insinuates Trump Wants Hillary Assassinated

Times anti-Trump propaganda reached a new low with an August 9 article, editorial and commentary

Its propaganda turned truth on its head, suggesting Trump wants “gun rights supporters…tak(ing) matters into their own hands” by assassinating Clinton if she prevails in November.

What prompted such outrageous rubbish? At an August 9 North Carolina rally, he said “Hillary wants to abolish the Second Amendment…If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks.”

Later on Fox News, he called gun owner rights “a strong powerful movement, the Second Amendment.”

Hillary wants to take your guns away. She wants to leave you unprotected in your home. This is a tremendous political movement. The NRA, as you know, endorsed me.

They’re terrific people…They agree 100% with what I said. And there can be no other interpretation. Even reporters have told me. I mean, give me a break.

Assange: Hillary’s Campaign Reeks Of ‘McCarthyism’

In a Tuesday interview with the Dutch news program “Nieuwsuur,” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange blasted Hillary Clinton for saying anyone who disagrees with her politically is an agent of a foreign government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assange is completely correct in his assessment; and being on Hillary's "enemies list" can come with great personal, and professional, cost.

Trust me: I know this from personal experience.

And it is interesting to see the Clinton Dead Bodies list expand, as it has over the last couple of weeks (perhaps as a warning to people who may have sensitive information about her, that they should just shut up), right at the height of her campaign.

Saudi Losses in Yemen War Exposed by US Tank Deal

The U.S. State Department and Pentagon Tuesday OKed a $1.2 billion sale of 153 Abrams tanks to Saudi Arabia Tuesday. But that’s not the real news.

Turns out: 20 of those tanks, made in America by General Dynamics Land Systems, are “battle damage replacements” for Saudi tanks lost in combat.

Even though the formal announcement of the sales does not say where the tanks were fighting, the Saudi military is believed to have lost some of its 400-plus Abrams tanks in Yemen, where it is fighting Iranian-backed Houthi separatists.

This revelation was tucked inside a benign Pentagon announcement of the deal, one that for the most part reads just like dozens of other arms sales approved each year. The announcement does not even mention the conflict in Yemen, yet it gives a glimpse into this wildly underreported war between Arab states, the U.S., and the Houthis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US-enabled, seemingly unending, Saudi war against Yemen may well be Saudi Arabia's Vietnam.

In the current Administration's thinking, this conflict against the Houthis in Yemen, who ultimately overthrew the US-backed thug Al-Hadi, cannot be allowed to stand, because, after all, once the US has "regime changed" your government, it is supposed to stay regime-changed; not overwhelmed by a popular rebel movement!

Therefore, the US government, by aiding and abetting the Saudi government with intelligence, weapons, and guidance systems for its weapons, is complicit in the war crimes the Saudi Arabian military have been carrying out in Yemen, including the bombing of schools, hospitals, and the assassinations of civilians who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, like a marketplace.

In an earlier article I posted today, regarding the US government's blatant and open support of ISIS, with which it hopes to ultimately destroy the Al-Assad government in Syria, I mentioned that this government has fallen into a "the ends justifies the means" mentality, and it is very apparent in its enabling of the Saudi military, that the same mind-set applies here.

It obviously doesn't matter to the US government at all how many innocent Yemenites get killed or maimed for life; the only goal is re-enthroning Al-Hadi, their thug, thus the people of Yemen getting murdered in the process are simply "collateral damage."

This is brilliantly documented by the following article:

500 Days of the Indefensible US-Backed War on Yemen.

Emails renew questions about Clinton Foundation and State Department overlap

A new batch of U.S. State Department emails released Tuesday showed the close and sometimes overlapping interests between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.

The documents raised new questions about whether the charitable foundation worked to reward its donors with access and influence at the State Department, a charge that Clinton has faced in the past and has always denied.

In one email exchange, for instance, an executive at the Clinton Foundation in 2009 sought to put a billionaire donor in touch with the U.S. ambassador to Lebanon because of the donor's interests there.

In another email, the foundation appeared to push aides to Clinton to help find a job for a foundation associate. Her aides indicated that the department was working on the request.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's not that this woman lies with impunity; it is that she feels she has the absolute, moral right, and entitlement, to lie with impunity.

Are those really the qualities we want in a President of the United States?!?

ISIS Video Shows US Training Rebels in Syria

A new ISIS propaganda video is raising a lot of concerns for the US military operation inside Syria, as it includes substantial footage of the rebel New Syrian Army (NSA) being trained by US special operations forces, inside Syria, in the lead-up to an ISIS attack which forced a retreat.

The propaganda video itself centers on the US giving weapons to the NSA forces, and ISIS getting a hold of many of those weapons after routing the rebels in a failed attack on ISIS border crossing al-Bukamal. That’s old news though, and the footage of the training is a much more serious issue.

Where did the video come from, and how did ISIS get it? It’s unclear why the Pentagon would want to be recording their covert training operations inside Syria, particularly in the lead-up to an offensive. This raises the very real possibility that ISIS has so substantially infiltrated this “vetted” rebel force that they’re able to take substantial video of their operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

We have an Administration in DC which is deeply enmeshed in an "the end justifies the means" mind set, without any moral compass whatsoever, so the arming, training, and funding of ISIS jihadists is perfectly acceptable if it creates regime change in Damascus.

How " old Soviet Union" of them!!!

Never mind the pain and misery it is inflicting on the people of Syria and Iraq; those people are simply "collateral damage" to DC.

‘Kiev has turned to terrorism’: Putin on foiled sabotage plot in Crimea

Kiev has turned to the “practice of terrorism” instead of trying to peacefully resolve Ukraine’s crisis, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in commenting on an FSB report that it had foiled terrorist attacks in Crimea plotted by Ukrainian intelligence.
Ukraine is “playing a dangerous game,” the Russian leader said when talking to reporters on Wednesday, while calling Kiev’s actions “stupid and criminal.”

Moscow cannot turn a blind eye to the deaths of its servicemen who were killed during special operations to prevent terrorist attacks in Crimea, Putin said.

Given that the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (HUR MOU) was allegedly behind the thwarted terrorist attacks in Crimea, it is “pointless” to meet with Ukraine’s current authorities to seek a solution to the country’s crisis, Putin said.

SET TO STUN

Months later, on a hot July day in this small town in North Carolina, Scott was watching the news with his mother, Stephanie Grice. Three days earlier, Alton Sterling had been fatally shot by a police officer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Two days earlier, police in Minnesota had shot and killed Philando Castile. The night before, five police officers had been gunned down in Dallas. Like the rest of the nation, Scott and Grice couldn’t turn away.

Grice, who works as a patient account representative at a nearby medical center, said she can’t help but wonder if her son’s harsh punishment was influenced by the color of his skin. Both students involved in the fight were black; the school police officer, named Pete Smith, was white.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, THIS is what passes for "education" in American public schools?!?

I swear, if Mike and I had had children, we would have found a state where home schooling was completely legal, and home schooled our kid.

There are a zillion ways to break up a fight, and deal with a kid's behaviour that is less than ideal, other than with a stun gun.

But tasering a child, when that practice can potentially kill the child?!?

That's just way out of line, and so completely morally bankrupt, on the part of those adults who are allegedly working in a school setting to help kids blossom intellectually, that I cannot even begin to articulate how hurtful and stupid this practice is.

UNSAFE LEVELS OF TOXIC CHEMICALS FOUND IN DRINKING WATER FOR SIX MILLION AMERICANS

Levels of a widely used class of industrial chemicals linked with cancer and other health problems — polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) — exceed federally recommended safety levels in public drinking water supplies for six million people in the U.S., according to a new study led by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).
The study will be published August 9, 2016 in Environmental Science & Technology Letters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Might as well face the reality that local and Federal officials don't care about the quality of your drinking water.

There are several, rather inexpensive, water testing kits that are readily available for consumers.

It is better for you to know what is in your drinking water, then develop a plan of action if your water is contaminated, particularly if you have kids.

CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS SUED OVER ALLEGED HANDCUFFING OF 6YO FOR ‘STEALING CANDY’

A mother is suing Chicago Public Schools (CPS) after her 6-year-old daughter was allegedly handcuffed by a security guard and left near the premises’ boiler room under the stairs for more than an hour.

The incident reportedly occurred at Fernwood Elementary School back in March after the child took some candy from the teacher’s desk without permission.

The security guard in question, who has since been dismissed from his job, and the CPS are named in the lawsuit which alleges use of excessive force, false imprisonment and causing emotional distress.

“She was under the stairs, handcuffed, in the school, by the boilers. You can't treat children like that," the girl’s mother, Marlena Wordlow, told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why, when you live in the urban inner city areas, that you can never allow your child to attend the local public school.

There are a zillion ways to make a 6 year old realize that what she had done was bad behaviour, other than handcuffing, under the stairs, near the boiler.

That her teacher and the security guard who did this apparently didn't realize that there were alternatives to this process does not augur well for public education in Chicago.

FINANCIAL TIMES EDITOR EXPOSED (ACCIDENTAL PUBLIC TWEET)

Financial Times editor Lionel Barber thought he was sending out a direct private tweet. Not so, He accidently sent the tweet out a publicly. In the tweet, he attached a letter that informed that he had been chosen to be awarded the Légion d’Honneur by French President François Hollande. There is no doubt, he was awarded this because of his pro-EU, anti-Brexit stance. This explains why as...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This cheapens and demeans the awarding of the Legion D'Honneur just about as much as the moment when our Warmonger in Chief, President Obama, accepted the Nobel Peace Prize.

Obamacare On "Verge Of Collapse" As Premiums Set To Soar Again In 2017

If Obamacare enrollments continue their current trend and insurers continue to hike premiums at alarming rates then Republicans may not have to worry about "repealing and replacing Obamacare" as it might just work itself out "naturally". The 4th open enrollment period for Obamacare begins on November 1, 2016 and industry experts are warning that another year of tepid demand from "young and healthy" Americans could force more insurers out of the exchanges effectively marking the end of Obamacare as we know it. According to a story published by The Hill, 11 million people bought health insurance through the exchanges for 2016 which was drastically below the Congressional Budget Office's initial projection of 21 million.

Pentagon reveals no-bid $10 million contract for mercenaries and spies to fight ISIS in Syria

It’s not just U.S. troops battling ISIS. Now the Army is sinking millions of dollars into private intelligence contractors for the fight. Every day at 5 p.m., the Pentagon releases a list of that day’s contracts worth more than $7 million. On July 27, buried in the daily email was an eye-catching detail: Military contractors would be working inside Syria alongside the roughly 300 U.S. troops already deployed there.

Farmer Forced By USDA Board To Dump Cherry Crop On Ground

The Michigan farmer, Marc Santucci, posted a picture to Facebook July 26 showing thousands of cherries on the ground, hours from rotting, because of an order from a board that is overseen by the US Department of Agriculture. He said he was forced to dump 14 percent of his crop, and other farmers as much as 30 percent.

The picture quickly went viral and has garnered 63,000 shares, 12,000 likes and 8,000 comments.

The dumped cherries cannot be sold.

“These cherries are beautiful,” Santucci wrote on his Facebook page. “But, we have to dump 14 percent of our tart cherry crop on the ground to rot. Why? So we can allow the import of 200 million pounds of cherries from overseas! It just doesn’t seem right.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the US Government orders domestic growers to destroy their domestically-produced food, to make way for foreign imports?

Does that make any sense at all, other than the foreign producers have paid the right bribes to the right US government officials?

Why not take that food and distribute it to the homeless and hungry?

Is the entire US government on drugs?!?

A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation traced the convoluted payment by TAQA — formally known as the the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company — to Muhammad Yunus’ Grameen Bank. Yunus is a long-time friend and Clinton Foundation donor.

The More the Establishment Freaks Out Over Trump, the More Attractive He Becomes

The Establishment is freaking out about Donald Trump for one reason: they didn’t pick him. The Establishment is freaking out because the natural order of things is that we pick the presidential candidates and we run the country to serve ourselves, i.e. the financial-political elites.

Donald Trump’s candidacy upsets this neofeudal natural order, and thus he (and everyone who supports him) is anathema to the Establishment, heretics who must be silenced, cowed, marginalized, mocked and ultimately put back in their place as subservient debt-serfs.

Three essential US stands: It's NOT ‘president’ upon ‘election’ after ‘independent debate,’ but ‘rogue state dictator’ upon ‘election fraud’ after ‘bullshit propaganda.’ Don't vote for evil; demand arrests of evil

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“It is more correct to say that Truth is God than to say God is truth. ...we must speak the Truth.” ~ Gandhi on Truth (and here, pg. 20)

"One thing we have endeavoured to observe most scrupulously, namely, never to depart from the strictest facts and, in dealing with the difficult questions that have arisen during the year, we hope that we have used the utmost moderation possible under the circumstances. Our duty is very simple and plain.... Facts we would always place before our readers, whether they are palatable or not, and it is by placing them constantly before the public in their nakedness that the misunderstanding… can be removed." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi, Indian Opinion (1 October 1903)

The US does not have:

a president
chosen by election
after independent debates.
What the US has is:

a rogue state dictator
chosen by election fraud
after bullshit propaganda.

Are There Any Limits on Obama’s Drone War, Really?

Obama announced the formalization of the Rule Book—now dubbed the Presidential Policy Guidance (PPG)—in May 2013. It was partly a response to critics who said the administration was essentially conducting extrajudicial killings, with no rubric by which to judge whether it was staying within the bounds of international law. Obama explained that after four years of drone war without such formal rules, he was now “insisting upon clear guidelines, oversight, and accountability that is now codified in Presidential Policy Guidance.”

It took three more years and a lawsuit before, on Friday, the administration finally released a copy of the PPG to the ACLU in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. While some of the policy promises in the document are laudable, the document, in a structural sense, doesn’t seem to add the oversight to the war on terror that Obama promised back in 2013. Indeed, it seems designed not to.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't care how many pages this PPG may have; extrajudicial assassinations are morally separated from the intent and fulfillment of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and are, therefore, illegal.

US Warns Turkey to Back Off Threats, Accusations Over Coup

Since a failed military coup last month, US relations with Turkey have been worsening consistently, with the Erdogan government harshly criticizing the Obama Administration at every chance, variously accusing the US of not being supportive enough and at times accusing the US of being secretly behind the coup.

The State Department appears to be growing weary of this, and has warned the Turkish government to back off the various threats and accusations against the United States surrounding the coup, saying they find Turkey’s “inflammatory rhetoric” a serious problem.

Turkish officials don’t appear to be keen on backing away from the allegations, with pro-government newspapers accusing the US-based Woodrow Wilson Center of being in on the coup, and the Justice Ministry issuing a statement warning that the US is risking bilateral relations by not handing over exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me see what bargaining chips the US State Department has to get Turkey to back off from these accusations; the short answer, is .....absolutely none.

A threat to expel Turkey from NATO?!?

Turkey, as of yesterday's meeting between Erdogan and Putin in St. Petersburg , may be ready to execute a Russian-centric pivot, both economically and militarily, which will mean that NATO membership is something Erdogan may be willing to "sacrifice" to see that this pivot gets nurtured.

And so far, the American and NATO troops which were locked down in Incerlik, (and those estimated 50 - 90 varying payload thermonuclear bombs), as still locked down in Incerlik.

The Obama administration has utterly no game, except to extradite Gulen, dead or alive; my bet would be on the first, rather than the latter, as Gulen is a CIA asset, with extensive knowledge of how the CIA functions in Turkey, and therefore would be a "live liability" should he be extradited alive.

Democratic Senate Candidate Says Scalia’s Death ‘Happened At A Good Time’

Senate candidate and Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) apologised for saying that the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice, Antonin Scalia "happened at a good time for labor unions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at Scalia's death/murder, one has to speculate; for what other individuals or entities was this a good time for Scalia's demise?!?

As reported at http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=31180 on 14 February, 2016:

Truly, there is something is very wrong with the state of the nation when the death of an elder statesman immediately produces headlines suggesting the distinct possibility of murder and assassination. It used to be that when a real VIP passed away they were lovingly remembered, even by their enemies … sometimes even by their worst enemies. Nowadays, when someone BIG dies unexpectedly the suspicion of murder is on everyone’s mind. Particularly since the Obama Administration has so polarized the body politic along every line of division they could politically exploit, do the suspicions run extremely high. The trust level toward a U.S. President has never been so low and so justified. There are many curious circumstances surrounding the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. We’re not talking about the actual murder death at the fastidiously controlled resort scene. We’re talking about the many important cases currently in front of the Supreme Court that will literally decide the fate of Obama’s legacy. Clearly, Justice Scalia’s strong constitutional positions would dictate the direction of the SCOTUS where it concerned many of those most significant rulings that would undermine Obama’s signature pieces of legislation. Justice Scalia was a staunch defender of the U.S. Constitution and therefore Obama’s greatest political enemy. There is not even a close second anywhere in American government, especially since the House and Senate now routinely advocate for Obama’s agenda. What’s the real point? The following headlines capture just a few of those sentiments which are being now expressed by pundits and politicos alike across the entire political spectrum. There is a very serious belief that Justice Scalia was murdered by stealth while staying at the luxury resort in Marfa, Texas.

2012 DOD DOCUMENTS SHOW STATE DEPARTMENT WELL AWARE OF WEAPONS SHIPMENTS TO TERRORISTS IN SYRIA, HILLARY LIED IN TESTIMONY

While so many rumors, accusations, and scandals surround the 2013 incident in Benghazi where a number of U.S. ambassadorial staff as well as Ambassador Chris Stevens were murdered by Islamic extremists, the question almost always arises “How much was known about Stevens’ mission of supporting terrorists in Syria and who knew it?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lying, and lying under oath, are two of Hillary Clinton's greatest skills; but is this what voters really want in a President and Commander in Chief?!?

I have to wonder what will be the response of the Clintonistas if she wins/steals the elections, and wars are declared against just about any country Israel doesn't like; and they find their sons and daughters drafted, then dead, or maimed for life as a result of these wars.

Because I can nearly guarantee you that as President, this is going to happen under her watch.

And please don't get me wrong; I want to see a woman as President of the United States in the near future; but please, God, NOT THIS WOMAN!!

JULIAN ASSANGE SUGGESTS SETH RICH - WHO WAS MURDERED IN DC - WAS WIKILEAKS DNC SOURCE

On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.

Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”

Julian Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27 year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Clinton Crime Syndicate is no stranger to political assassinations.

You can view those associated with the Clintons, and most likely wound up quite dead because of that association with the Clintons here:

FORMER CIA DIRECTOR AND HILLARY SUPPORTER: "WE SHOULD KILL RUSSIANS AND IRANIANS COVERTLY"

Attempting to justify what is essentially a conspiracy to commit acts of murder, terrorism and war, Morell compared his proposal to alleged covert operations waged against the US during its illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003 and onward. The difference between the US invasion of Iraq and that of Russia's intervention in Syria, however, is significant. The US invaded Iraq in 2003, predicated upon a premeditated lie, while Russia was invited to aid the acting government of Syria.

Here is the key exchange:

Morell: We need to make the Iranians pay the price in Syria; we need to make the Russians pay the price.

Rose: We make them pay the price by killing Russians and killing Iranians?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in Morell's opinion, the covert assassination of Iranians and Russians will make relationships better with Iran and Russia?!?

Then what, please, will prevent Russia and Iran from doing the very same thing to American assets, in all regions?!?

The short answer is, absolutely nothing.

Morell obviously prefers assassinations to negotiations, and yes, to many people around the world, this country has become the "assassination nation", with all of its use of extrajudicial assassinations as a tool of its military policy.

But folks,the truth of the business here is that to be publicly advocating this position, demonstrates, painfully, that Morell has become mentally unhinged in the extreme, and has utterly lost his reality licence; and remember that if Clinton wins/steals the election, he most probably will have a place in her cabinet.

And that cabinet position, if named honestly, will most probably be the newly minted Secretary... of Geopolitical Insanity.

HOW FACEBOOK CENSORSHIP ACTIVELY HIDES EVIDENCE OF POLICE BRUTALITY

hen Facebook acted at the behest of Baltimore County police last week by abruptly deleting Korryn Gaines’ social media accounts amid an ongoing standoff between authorities and the 23-year-old, did the private corporation become an agent of the State? If it did, far more precipitously, did the social media giant impinge on Gaines’ constitutional rights as a chilling new manifestation of subjective government-sanctioned censorship?
During what became a five-hour standoff, Gaines posted a number of videos documenting her prolonged encounter with a heavily-armed Baltimore SWAT team — summoned to the scene after officers learned the woman had a firearm. In one video uploaded to Instagram, which Facebook owns, Gaines speaks with her five-year-old son, who sits on the floor wearing red pajamas.

“Who’s outside?” she asks him.

“The police,” he softly responds.

“What are they trying to do?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Social media will always take the side of the police and various other state and Federal enforcement agencies so as not to potentially get shut down, and lose a ton of business.

Judicial Watch Uncovers New Batch of Hillary Clinton Emails

Judicial Watch today released 296 pages of State Department records, of which 44 email exchanges were not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to 171 of new Clinton emails (not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department). These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department

Soon-To-Be-Released Book by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton Warns of Massive Voter Fraud Danger in Current Presidential Election

A soon-to-be-released book by New York Times bestselling author Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton warns that America may now be facing the greatest voter fraud danger in recent history. And it lays the blame for the crisis directly at the feet of President Barack Obama and his Justice Department.

The book – Clean House (to be released August 30 from Simon & Schuster/Threshold Editions) – cites examples nationwide of attempts by the Obama Justice Department to thwart efforts to clean up voter rolls, require voter ID at the polls, and prevent voter intimidation. In a chapter titled “Voter Fraud – Stealing Elections – The Danger of Voter Fraud and the Fight for Election Integrity,” Fitton describes major legal battles to protect voter integrity in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland, and Indiana.

Is It Racist?

Leftists using the epithet racist to smear their enemies is nothing new. They have for years used the racist label to attack and neutralize conservative and libertarian opponents of various government programs and social movements. And they have generally been successful. It seems as though many Americans would rather be called anything but a racist and be accused of anything but racism. It has almost gotten to the point where racism is viewed as unfavorably as terrorism, genocide, starvation, torture, or Holocaust denial.

9-minute video: Clinton ‘body count’ suspiciously increases by five in the last six weeks. What’s certain: Hillary is a War Criminal, rogue Secretary of State, and election fraud felon. Want all history-mysteries solved? Demand .01% arrests

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

TRUTHstreammedia’s strong 9-minutes (other documentation of three victims):

Assassination of political opponents is best demonstrated by the legal verdict of the King Family civil trial that found the US government guilty of Martin’s assassination (summary of evidence below, to make the point). The family’s analysis of motive was to stop Martin leading a million-person occupation of Washington, D.C. until his version of lie-started and illegal War of Aggression (Vietnam) was ended, and with those funds redirected to end domestic poverty (analysis here).

Another example is the assassination of President John Kennedy, who opposed the CIA, Federal Reserve, the oil oligarchy, and other top corporate oligarchs (overwhelming evidence of US government assassination of JFK here).

One bug to rule them all: 'State-supported' Project Sauron malware attacks world's top PCs

Two top electronic security firms have discovered a new powerful malware suite being used to target just dozens of high-value targets around the world. The research shows that it was likely developed on the orders of a government engaging in cyber espionage.

The California-based Symantec has labeled the group behind the attack Strider, while Moscow-based Kaspersky Labs dubbed it ProjectSauron. Both are references to J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, a nod to the fact that the original malware code contained the word “Sauron.”

But behind the playful literary allusions is a powerful piece of software, capable of “harvesting” passwords on entire networks and “modules are designed to perform specific functions like stealing documents, recording keystrokes, and stealing encryption keys from both infected computers and attached USB sticks,” according to Kaspersky.

Mr Piears launched the Dying for a Cure campaign in March following the death of his 'inspirational' wife.

The initiative aims to highlight his concerns over what he describes as the 'profit-led' approach to drug research.

He paid for a 'boosted Facebook post' on the website to promote the message and encourage users to sign a petition.

The image he used on the site shows a female cancer patient holding up a sign over her bare chest that reads: 'UK Governments: The profits on cancer drugs are killing us.'

However on July 8 he received a message from Facebook that said: 'Your advert wasn't approved because it doesn't follow our Advertising Policies by featuring an image containing excessive amounts of skin or suggestive content.

5-minute video: Wrestlemania Trump lies/flip-flops on 13 topics, just like War Criminal Clinton. Ongoing Wars of Aggression, Bankster economics, CONSTANT lying = Zero leadership and Evil. Don’t vote for evil

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

We’ve covered Hillary Clinton lying and flip-flopping on eight key topics, her election fraud documented by the President of the US top professional organization for statisticians (along with Obama playing stupid about damning facts), and that both Clinton and Trump will continue easily documented unlawful and lie-started Wars of Aggression.

We’ve considered evidence and video of Trump’s racism, bigotry, narcissism, and lack of maturity (consider his spending free time for violent cosplay in WrestleMania). Now, PlainSight’s 5-minutes of 13 Trump flip-flops:

The topics:

War on Iraq
Hillary’s job performance as Secretary of State
Hillary’s qualifications for President
Abortion
Cursing in public
Universal health care
War on Libya
Illegal immigration deportation
Nuclear weapons for Japan
His own party affiliation
Minimum wage
Releasing his tax returns
Bill Clinton’s relationships with other women

Spain's Ferrovial to walk away from Manus, Nauru detention centre operations

Australian PM Turnbull from Goldman, on leave to manage Australia for the Cartel, is forcing Ferrovial to fulfill a contract so vile they want to walk away from a pool of profit. Detaining refugees is one thing. Sending them to a tropical hell hole to rot is the work of evil men. It costs ~$240,000 a year to keep a refugee on Nauru, ~$35,000 a year in the camps in the deserts in Australia. Turnbull is using taxpayers money to torture people. Australia is not Europe or the US, the number of refugees who get here is very few and most come from countries Australia helped destroy.

Mundane Lives Don’t Matter, So Don’t Try to Exercise Your Rights

Claire estimates that the family has already been forced to sink more than a thousand dollars into this legal struggle, which – although she was far too polite to say as much – was inflicted on them because a pathologically self-preoccupied deputy took offense that a Mundane tried to act in the interests of his safety, and that of his wife. After all, in such encounters, only “Blue Lives” really matter.

Official audit: ‘Lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression Dept’ (so-called ‘Defense’) claims they ‘lost’ $6.5 trillion (~$65,000 per US household). Americans: prefer arrests for OBVIOUS crimes in war, money, lying, or dictatorial rogue US state?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The US Department of Defense (DoD) Inspector General issued an audit report last week reporting DoD claims to have “lost” $6.5 trillion in year-end accounting, with $2.8 trillion “missing” in the last fiscal quarter alone (euphemistically termed “unaccounted”).

$6.5 trillion equals:

~$65,000 per US household.
Embezzling a billion dollars from a US military project 6,500 times.
Embezzling a billion dollars every day for 18 years.
An Inspector General is supposed to be head of an independent and non-partisan auditing organization to discover and investigate waste, embezzlement, and fraud. They are supposed to act as “watchdogs” to ensure government agencies are transparent and lawful, with power to subpoena and take testimonies under oath.

Democracy Is Dead

Globalists of all stripes are calling this nationalist revival narrow-minded and obscurantist. Their leading argument is that global problems such as climate change, overpopulation, and poverty require institutions with global authority. But what they should keep in mind is that those various supra-national institutions or entities, which started with stated good intentions, such as the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), not only have failed to solve any global problems but have, by their corrupt nature made them worse. In the case of the supra-national North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), there is no pretense of being a do-gooder. The armed fist of the Orwellian empire is in the business of globalization of war with decisions made in Washington, DC. In Orwellian times, many supra-national organizations behave like corporations under humanitarian pretenses, when they are in fact parasitic organisms depleting our strength. Meanwhile, no one represents We The People at all. In the world of humanitarianism for profit, public servants have vanished and been replaced by corrupt incompetent groups operating like crime families.

DEMOCRATS’ TACTIC OF ACCUSING CRITICS OF KREMLIN ALLEGIANCE HAS LONG, UGLY HISTORY IN U.S.

A frequent weapon for Democrats in the 2016 election is to publicly malign those they regard as critics and adversaries as Russia sympathizers, Putin stooges, or outright agents of the Kremlin. To put it mildly, this is not a new tactic in U.S. political discourse, and it’s worth placing it in historical context. That’s particularly true given how many people have now been targeted with this attack.

Obama’s GMO embarrassment: Why the new labeling bill just signed into law is a sham

It is known as the DARK Act — Denying Americans the Right to Know. It was signed by President Obama last week in the afterglow of the Democratic National Convention, without fanfare or major media coverage. The bill’s moniker is apt. With a few strokes of his pen Obama scratched out the laws of Vermont, Connecticut and Maine that required the labeling of genetically engineered foods.

He also nullified the GE seed labeling laws in Vermont and Virginia that allowed farmers to choose what seeds they wanted to buy and plant. And for good measure he preempted Alaska’s law requiring the labeling of any GE fish or fish product, passed to protect the state’s vital fisheries from contamination by recently approved genetically engineered salmon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, this legislation is a bloody sham; because at the end of the day, Obama is no less "owned" by Monsanto and the other GMO-creating companies than are prominent Republicans.

Can Clinton corner Condi, Kissinger?

As Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign reaches out to Republicans alarmed by Donald Trump's national security blunders, there’s a group of high-profile GOP hold-outs whose endorsement would be a major coup if the Democrat could win them over.

Condoleezza Rice, James Baker, George Shultz and Henry Kissinger are among a handful of so-called Republican “elders” with foreign policy and national security experience — people who have held Cabinet-level or otherwise high-ranking positions in past administrations — who have yet to come out for or against Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME, PARTICULARLY WITH RICE AND KISSINGER?!?

These people are both war criminals, with gallons of innocent blood on their hands, because of the wars on which they signed off.

But such seeking such endorsements makes one thing painfully clear about Hillary Clinton's campaign; if elected, she will seek more wars, and military solutions to geopolitical problems, than nearly any of her predecessors.

And for her, and people like her, it's always "other peoples' kids" who wind up getting killed and maimed for life,kin these wars for for private corporate profit, and insurance of the US dollar's hegemony.

MASS SHOOTINGS DRIVEN BY "MEDIA CONTAGION": STUDY

People who commit mass shootings in America tend to share three traits: rampant depression, social isolation, and pathological narcissism, according to a paper presented at the American Psychological Association’s annual convention that calls on the media to deny such shooters the fame they seek.

“Mass shootings are on the rise and so is media coverage of them,” said Jennifer B. Johnston of Western New Mexico University. “At this point, can we determine which came first? Is the relationship merely unidirectional: More shootings lead to more coverage? Or is it possible that more coverage leads to more shootings?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find this stand deliciously ironic, on the part of the APA, when solid evidence suggests that most of the shootings happened when these people were taking psychiatric drugs.

And of COURSE, the APA completely refuses to take responsibility for their involvement in this mess, even with an overwhelming preponderance of negative effects of these drugs writ large in manufacturers' information about them!

As reported at ccjrint.org:

35 School shooters/school related violence committed by those under the influence of psychiatric drugs

IF THE FACT NEOCONS ARE NOW SUPPORTING HILLARY CLINTON CONFUSES YOU, READ THIS

What’s a Neocon to do?

Bill Kristol is downright despondent after his failed search for an alternative to Donald Trump. Max Boot isindignant about his “stupid” party’s willingness to ride a bragging bull into a delicate China policy shop. And the leading light of the first family of military interventionism — Robert Kagan — is actually lining up Neoconservatives behind the Democratic nominee for president of the United States.

At the same time, the Democrats have become the party of bare-knuckled, full-throated American Exceptionalism. That transformation was announced with a vein-popping zeal by retired general and wannabe motivation screamer John Allen at the Democratic convention in the City of Brotherly Love. During his “speech,” a few plaintive protests of “no more war” were actually drowned-out by Democrats chanting “USA-USA-USA!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all of his "blunt instrument" candor, Trump is emerging, ironically, as the "peace candidate" in this election.

Clinton is the poster child for both the military-industrial complex and Wall Street; she has never met a potential military solution to a geopolitical problem she didn't love, and is thoroughly in bed with those multinational corporations which support her campaign, and will insist on more offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs under her watch.

And no matter how carefully her handlers try to "groom" her public demeanor, to get her to appear as though she might possibly give a damn about We the People, at the end of the day, what we have in her candidacy is a candidacy for herself and the 1%.

So a vote for Hillary Clinton this November will be a vote for more wars; more income inequality, and the complete train-wreck, destruction of what we used to call "The American Dream."

CHICAGO COPS SWITCHED OFF BODYCAMS AND HIGH-FIVED AFTER SHOOTING UNARMED BLACK TEEN

The Chicago Independent Police Review Authority has released a video showing the aftermath of the July 28 police shooting of an unarmed black man, in which the officers checked to ensure that their body-cameras were switched off and then gave each other high fives.

18-year-old Paul O'Neal was killed after allegedly crashing a stolen Jaguar into two Chicago police officers. Officers claimed to have shot at him "at least five times" (the actual number of shots was 15). Some officers believed that O'Neal had fired upon them. He was unarmed.

The three officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.

CBS Chicago's Charlie De Mar saw the video and reported that it shows one officer high fiving another before saying "F***, I’m going to be on desk duty now for 30 days"; and one officer saying to another, "Make sure this (body-camera) is off."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, it was profoundly stupid of this kid, stealing the Jag.

However, that having been said, the extrajudicial assassinations of young African-American men by Chicago police continues, unabated, in Rahm Emanuel's Chicago.

And to residents of Chicago, and beyond, who are going to demonstrate against police brutality, please remember to do this peacefully; there is nothing this administration would love to see happen domestically right now than riots in our streets, to give it the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, invoke martial law, and suspend November's elections.

FLORIDA SPRAYING RESIDENTS WITH NEUROTOXIC PESTICIDE BANNED IN OTHER COUNTRIES TO COMBAT ZIKA

Areas of Miami, Florida, are now being sprayed with the insecticide naled in an attempt to eradicate the Aedes aegypti mosquito — carrier of the zika virus. Naled, a potent neurotoxin that kills mosquitoes on contact, is perfectly safe, or so the Environmental Protection Agency insists, despite Puerto Rico’s rejection of its use to combat the spread of zika there — due to concerns about its safety.

To keep naled airborne where it would be most effective, the agent is sprayed in very fine aerosol droplets — about two tablespoons can be dispersed to cover an area the equivalent of two football fields, a local CBS affiliate reported.

If a ‘far greater’ amount of naled were employed, according to the Florida Department of Health, ‘it could cause a person to salivate more, feel numbness, headaches, dizziness, tremors, nausea, abdominal cramps, sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing and a slowed heartbeat.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can find the toxic effects of this pesticide here, in a profile from Cornell University:

Toxic Effects of Naled

Of course, the people living in the areas affected by the Zika virus are some of Florida's poorest of Florida's poor, so the state doesn't really give a rat's anus about their safety and well being; they only want to be perceived, politically, as "doing something" to alleviate the problem.

5 EXPLOSIVE SECRET INTELLIGENCE MEMOS ON LIBYA EVERYONE MUST READ [VIDEO]

Libya is a mess following the western military intervention that started in 2011. We were told it was necessary because there’s an evil dictator who had to be taken out as he was massacring his own people. But is that really why we went to war with Libya?
Muammar Gaddafi did have much blood on his hands – from the so-called Toyota War (or Chadian-Libyan conflict) to taking responsibility for Lockerbie. Not to mention his handy role in George W. Bush’s extraordinary rendition program.

Gaddafi was an interventionist who favoured shady backroom deals and covert action, as well as support of proxies abroad to accomplish his goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary's push for military intervention in Libya is directly responsible for its failed state status today.

Yes, there is power in destruction, as in her statement, regarding Qaddafi, "We came, we saw, he died!!" you can see the video here:

Hillary Clinton being interviewed regarding the assassination of Qaddafi

But as Secretary of State, she had utterly no long-term thinking, or plan, about what was to come next, and what would be for the good of the Libyan people in the long run.

And this is the scariest thing about Hillary Clinton's "thought process", if in fact, she has one; she is only concerned for achieving an immediate, specific goal, but is pathologically incapable of thinking for one millisecond beyond that as to what happens next.

And THIS was the best the Democratic Party can do for the American people, as a candidate this year?

The same Party that nominated John F. Kennedy for President in the 60s?!?

Not that Kennedy was without flaws, but he had the intellectual capability of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion, which is why he was able to successfully get the Russians to blink and back off during the Cuban missile crisis.

Bomb Kills Dozens as Pakistani Lawyers Stage Protest at Hospital

At least 54 people were killed on Monday in the restive Pakistani city of Quetta when an explosion, apparently caused by a suicide bomber, struck a hospital where dozens of lawyers had gathered to condemn the killing of a prominent colleague.

Officials in the southwestern city said that at least 50 people were wounded, most of them critically, and that the death toll was likely to rise.

Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan, a province bordering Afghanistan and Iran that has been a center separatist and sectarian violence for more than a decade. Much of the violence in Quetta has come from sectarian extremist groups that have targeted Hazaras, a mostly Shiite ethnic minority that makes up a large part of Quetta’s population.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Pakistani government appears to be absolutely impotent to stop this madness, and perhaps that is the point the jihadists here want to make; that the Pakistani government is no longer in control.

Unfortunately, hatred and killing only begets more hatred and killing; not love, dialogue, or a common understanding which can nurture the future.

Clinton vs. Trump? No, It’s the Media vs. America

Liberal media bias has long been an open secret. But now it’s so bad that even a liberal mainstream newspaper notes that, in an effort to destroy Donald Trump, the media have jumped the shark.

In a Los Angeles Times piece, columnist Justin Raimondo writes that to “fight Trump, journalists have dispensed with objectivity”; he then asks, “Why are the rules of journalism being rewritten this election year?” He also theorizes that the pro-Hillary Clinton bias has become so blatant it may actually backfire on the media.

ONLY IN NEW JERSEY: BILL WOULD BAN MOTORISTS FROM DRINKING COFFEE AND DRIVING

New Jersey already draws ire for not letting drivers pump their own gas. But the state might ban them from having a cup of coffee behind the wheel too. A bill under consideration in the state Legislature calls to prohibit “any activity unrelated to the actual operation of a motor vehicle in a manner that interferes with the safe operation of the vehicle on a public road or highway.” That means no cup of coffee for those sitting in traffic, no munching on that breakfast burrito, no time to groom. (No, the law does not target coffee verbatim.)

I just listened to Obama give Washington’s account of the situation with ISIL in Iraq and Syria.

In Obama’s account, Washington is defeating ISIL in Iraq, but Russia and Assad are defeating the Syrian people in Syria. Obama denounced Russia and the Syrian government—but not ISIL—as barbaric. The message was clear: Washington still intends to overthrow Assad and turn Syria into another Libya and another Iraq, formerly stable and prosperous countries where war now rages continually.

Obama Un-Justice Department Gives Hillary Clinton A Free Pass

It is mind-boggling to consider that the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, won’t indict Hillary Clinton. Substantial damning evidence against Clinton—evidence clearly warranting Clinton’s indictment on felony criminal charges cries out for Clinton’s indictment. It is equally mind-boggling to consider that, in light of his unprecedented statement to the American people on July 5, 2016—notably, one day after our National Holiday, marking our Nation’s independence from tyranny—the Director of the F.B.I., James B. Comey, would decide not to recommend indictment of Clinton, when his lengthy description of her crimes would strongly suggest he would do just that. He didn’t. Was he coerced? Americans may never know. We do know that Hillary Clinton should not escape justice. She must not escape justice.

But here’s the thing, it would appear as if the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is removing Linux partition.

Marco Rubio: No abortions for pregnant women infected with Zika virus

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) said on Saturday that pregnant women who are infected with the Zika virus — which is believed to cause severe and debilitating birth defects like microcephaly — should not be allowed to terminate their pregnancies.

In an interview with Politico‘s Mike Caputo, Rubio said, “I understand a lot of people disagree with my view — but I believe that all human life is worthy of protection of our laws. And when you present it in the context of Zika or any prenatal condition, it’s a difficult question and a hard one. But if I’m going to err, I’m going to err on the side of life.”

Microcephaly involves severe deformities of the brain and skull and babies born with the condition begin their lives critically ill. Their care can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in the first year of life alone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, what are you going to do, Senator, to do to make sure that Floridian kids living with microcephaly get the consistent, proper care throughout their lifetimes, if you is able to successfully enforce his view of no abortions for pregnant women infected with the Zika virus?!?

Where is the money in Florida going to come from, where kids with microcephaly may well need "care can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in the first year of life alone."?!?

Talk is cheap, Senator Rubio, and I too am pro-life; but at the end of the day, you have to put the State of Florida's money where your mouth is right now.

And the bottom line is, until you come up with legislation which insures the care of these kids, cradle to grave, you are of absolutely and utterly no damned use to the terribly anxious pregnant women who have contracted this disease.

And let's take a look at a map, showing us where the disease has localised, shall we?!?

Map of where Zika outbreak is localised in Miami-Dade and Borward Country, Florida

And what do these communities of Edgewater, Beverly Terrace, and Wynwood, Florida have in common?!?

In Beverly Terrace, as reported at http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/fl/sarasota/beverley-terrace/

"Of note, 67.8% of the children in this area live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for the depth of the problem manifested here."

As reported at vhttp://www.city-data.com/poverty/poverty-Edgewater-Florida.html

Residents with income below the poverty level in 2013:
Edgewater: 15.0%
Whole state: 22.2%

And as reported at: http://www.city-data.com/neighborhood/Edgewater-Miami-FL.html:

Percentage of population below poverty level:
Edgewater (Wynwood): 38.4%
Miami: 28.9%

So what we have here are very poor communities, with probably less city/county provided sanitation and education to stop the transmission of this virus.

The bottom line here, Senator Rubio,is that you and Governor Scott have some hard work ahead of you, proving to the residents here that they matter, and you are going to partner aggressively with City, Country, State, and Federal officials in eradicating this virus.

BEFORE AMERICA WANTED TO ERADICATE THEM, THE U.S. MILITARY WAS WEAPONIZING THE ZIKA MOSQUITO

After months of anticipation, the Zika virus has finally arrived to the continental U.S., with 15 non-travel cases being reported in Florida as of August 2. The virus is carried primarily by a species of mosquito called Aedes aegypti.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued its first-ever warning for within the U.S., urging pregnant women to avoid travel to a Miami neighborhood where the Zika investigation is centered.

CDC and the Florida Health Department recommended an aerial spraying program to cover a 10-square-mile area just north of downtown Miami. The state is spraying a chemical called Naled, which is an organophospate pesticide that causes severe skin and eye irritation; it also contains an inert ingredient called napthaline which is classified by the EPA as a “possible human carcinogen.”

TEXAS MOM UCNOVERS MASSIVE CULTURE OF CORRUPTION AND SEX SCANDALS AT US SECRET SERVICE

Malia Litman of Dallas TX describes herself as a stay-at-home mom. Unlike most moms (or dads, or anyone for that matter) she has spent $100,000 suing the U.S. government to turn over 3,900 pages of secret records about widespread sexual abuse and misbehavior by the U.S. Secret Service.

From Dallas News:

When the first Secret Service sex scandals broke a few years ago, she grew curious. A former senior partner at Thompson & Knight law firm in Dallas, she knew that federal law allows us to see government documents.

She began filing requests with the U.S. Department Homeland Security to learn of any incidents of agent misbehavior in the Secret Service, any investigations and disciplinary action.

I'll skip ahead to the end of her multi-year legal battle that ensued. She won. In the end, she received 3,914 pages, some of them so hot they almost burn the fingers.

EX-CIA CHIEF AND TORTURE DEFENDER ENDORSES CLINTON—WHY ARE DEMOCRATS CHEERING?

'Whose endorsement would Democrats not treat as a benefit, at this point? How bad of an actor does someone need to be?'

Morell went on to praise Clinton's "more aggressive approach" to the conflict in Syria and to accuse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of being an "unwitting agent of Putin." (Morell doesn't disclose that he currently works for a PR consulting firm run by longtime Clinton ally Phillippe Reines.)

Morell has in the past defended torture, most publicly in a book published as a retort to the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee's report on the CIA's torture program during George W. Bush's presidency.

And while many in the mainstream media have focused uncritically on the op-ed's Putin-phobia, progressives have expressed alarm that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party are not only celebrating an endorsement from a defender of torture, they are actually using such praise from neocons and war hawks to promote Clinton's candidacy:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cold hard reality is that, should Clinton win/steal the election in November, Morell will most probably have a very prominent place in her administration.

He has been lobbying for that for several years now.

Perhaps there should be a new cabinet appointment made, naming Morell as the head of Clinton's "Ministry of Untruth through Torture", spoken of, in hushed tones, in the bowels of power in DC, as "MUTT".

Democrats demand immigration records for Melania Trump

How low can they go!

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Thursday, August 4, 2016
Democrats demanded Thursday that the government release Melania Trump’s immigration file after news reports and at least one prominent immigration lawyer raised questions about whether the wife of the Republican presidential nominee followed the law in entering and working in the U.S.
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump, a political action committee, said it was filing an open-records request for Mrs. Trump’s visa records — though it’s unlikely they will be successful.

Fissures in the Empire — Paul Craig Roberts

Washington has raised the cost of being a member of its Empire too high. Vassals such as France and Germany are beginning to exercise independent policies toward Russia. Observing the cracks in its Empire, Washington has decided to bind its vassals to Washington with terror. Most likely what we are witnessing in the French and German attacks is Operation Gladio.

Washington’s policy toward Russia, which has been imposed by Washington on all of Europe, benefits no one but the handful of American ideologues known as neoconservatives. Neoconservatives are crazed psychopaths willing to destroy Earth in behalf of American hegemony.

A delegation of members of the French National Assembly and Senate went to Crimea to participate in Russian Navy Day on July 28. Thierry Mariani, the head of the French delegation, addressed the parliament in Crimea and said that there are no reasons for France to continue to support Washington’s illegal sanctions on Russia.

Mainstream Media Finally Admits Mass Banker ‘Suicides’ Were Likely a Vast Criminal Conspiracy

In 2015 there was a popular “conspiracy theory” floating around the internet after a rash of mysterious “suicides” by high profile banking professions. What once looked like wild speculation is now beginning to resemble a vast criminal conspiracy connected to the Libor, interest-rigging scandal.

Over forty international bankers allegedly killed themselves over a two-year period in the wake of a major international scandal that implicated financial firms across the globe. However, three of these seemingly unrelated suicides seem to share common threads related to their connections to Deutsche Bank. These three banker suicides, in New York, London, and Siena, Italy, took place within 17 months of each other in 2013/14 in what investigators labeled as a series of unrelated suicides.

‘We’ve had ENOUGH Merkel’ Rest of Europe gangs up on Germany over crippling EU austerity

Major EU nations including France, Italy and Spain are clubbing together to form a new alliance with the aim of wrestling back economic power from the German leader.

Mediterranean economies have been devastated by an EU-wide policy of austerity enforced from Berlin, which has led to massive youth unemployment and soaring poverty.

War law: Crystal-clear to see in letter and intent, the easiest way for YOU to help end dictatorial US rogue state empire by demanding arrests for OBVIOUS lie-started Wars of Aggression. Your choice is YES or NO for war, not Trump or Clinton for only war

“No treaty, however much it may be to the advantage of all, however tightly it may be worded, can provide absolute security against the risks of deception and evasion.” ~ President Kennedy, June 10, 1963

"Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." ~ 1st Amendment to the US Constitution

Perhaps the widest gap between what is lawful and what our .01% oligarchs do is in the ongoing armed attacks on other nations. This is also perhaps the most important policy measured by human lives, resources, and money.

A Big Damned Difference (Trump and Hillary)

Here’s a stark difference to consider: Hillary is a murderer. A mass murderer. By proxy, yes – but a murderer, nonetheless. Eager to have people killed. Arguably, more guilty of murder than Julius Streicher – who was hanged for merely inciting murderous hatred. Hillary has ordered people killed. Has literally reveled in the murder-by-sodomy of Quaddafi, which she helped to orchestrate. She is an obvious psychopath. Worse than The Chimp, even. And The Chimp was pretty got-damned awful.

Behold, a Pale Horse and its Rider’s Name Was Death and Hell Followed Him — Paul Craig Roberts

All of the violence in the Middle East, violence that has consumed countless lives and produced millions of war refugees now overrunning Washington’s NATO vassals in Europe, is 100 percent the fault of Washington, not the fault of ISIL, or Assad, or Russia. Washington and only Washington is to blame.

Don’t Tread on This

The ironic thing is, the government has just succeeded in entrenching the Gadsden Flag as a symbol of resistance to the government more than it already is. They probably boosted the sales of it, too. People will be flying that flag who normally couldn’t have cared less, just because they know the government is whining about it. So, yeah, hey federal government: Don’t tread on this.

Then the real political battles will begin.

BofA: "45% Of The Global Bond Market Is Now Compromised By Central Bank Buying"

The market’s attention this week was focused on the Bank of England’s decision to purchase £10 billion in corporate bonds over the next 18 months. By doing so Mark Carney, like Draghi, has opened up a Pandora's box, since ultimately corporate debt is nothing more than post-petition equity, and all it would take to make the BOE (or ECB) an activist stakeholder in an legal process is for the obligor to go bankrupt. Consider the following scenarios.

The Bank of England purchases a corporate bond of XYZ British Corporation and 2 years later, the company goes bankrupt. What will the BoE do? Will it sit in the bankruptcy table and negotiate with other creditors? Does it even have the legal authority to do so? Essentially they are gambling with the taxpayer's money.

BREXIT BLOCK: EU bureaucrats tell Britain to PAY £20BN bill or we WON'T let you leave

The European Union has threatened to hold the UK to ransom if it fails to pay the bill, in a scathing attack on democracy following Britain’s momentous Brexit vote.

An EU source told a German newspaper: “A deal with Britain is inconceivable if the British do not settle these liabilities.”

EU Commission lawyers have warned Theresa May’s Government a failure to pay up would equal a debt default, according to reports.

The now 27-member bloc has been pushing through a mountain of bills unpaid for years, which now amounts to more than €200billion (£170billion) and it is alleged that the British share is around €25 billion euros (£20billion).

The crumbling Brussels club appears to be desperately trying to put blocks in the way of a British exit following the Leave vote on June 23.

EU big cheese Jean-Claude Juncker has already warned Britain will not gain access to the single market if it refuses to accept freedom of movement rules.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would imagine that Prime Minister May could well take a page from Iceland's experience with parasitical political and banker-types; just declare these bills as "odious debts", and not pay them.

Commentary: The world's best cyber army doesn’t belong to Russia

National attention is focused on Russian eavesdroppers’ possible targeting of U.S. presidential candidates and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Yet, leaked top-secret National Security Agency documents show that the Obama administration has long been involved in major bugging operations against the election campaigns -- and the presidents -- of even its closest allies.

The United States is, by far, the world’s most aggressive nation when it comes to cyberspying and cyberwarfare. The National Security Agency has been eavesdropping on foreign cities, politicians, elections and entire countries since it first turned on its receivers in 1952. Just as other countries, including Russia, attempt to do to the United States. What is new is a country leaking the intercepts back to the public of the target nation through a middleperson.

War against Isis: US-led coalition accused of killing civilians using 'scorched earth policy' in Syria

Members of the US-led coalition have been accused of deploying a “scorched earth policy” in Syria by activists who claim to have documented scores of civilian deaths.

One group of anti-Isis activists, called Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, has said air strikes supporting a key offensive in Manbij are killing innocent families.

“The international coalition is using a scorched earth policy in the city and supporting the Syrian Democratic forces that have been surrounding the city for two months,” the group said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This does not surprise me in the slightest; the US government has a very sordid history of saying one thing, then doing quite the opposite.

CHICAGO POLICE WARN OF 'CIVIL UNREST' OVER PAUL O'NEAL COP SHOOTING VIDEO RELEASE

Chicago officers are seen firing at least 15 shots at a black Jaguar as it races down a tree-lined street. The car crashes. The driver bolts. Officers chase him down a driveway between brick houses and over wooden fences. Then multiple shots are heard.

Get down! Hands behind your back! You shot at us, mother------!"

Moments later, officers curse at 18-year-old Paul O'Neal as they put him in handcuffs as he lies face down. Hands behind his back, his arms appear limp. The back of his shirt is covered in blood. An officer holds his foot on O'Neal's leg. Another holds down the mortally wounded man's head.

The actual shooting, which occurred on July 28, isn't seen in the footage because the officer's body camera didn't record the moment he opened fire. However, police say the officer who shot O'Neal in the back violated policy. The teen, police learned, was not armed.

This video footage was released on Friday.

'Shocking and disturbing' footage

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, this kid made a very poor choice in stealing the car; and with Jaguar's reputation for being a highly theft-resistant vehicle, I am am rather surprised he was successful at doing this.

But that being said, did the cops have to kill him for it?!?

Don't the police in Chicago have "less than lethal" devices that stop someone, but don't kill them?!?

As stated at heavy.com:

O’Neal died shortly after the shooting in a hospital. The officers have not yet been identified. According to The Chicago Tribune, “The city’s use of force policy explicitly bars police from shooting into a car when the vehicle represents the only danger.” The videos show at least one officer firing toward the car after it has driven past.

Why do police officers, in so many cities around the country, believe that they can kill perps with impunity?!?

From where are they getting the message that it's OK to do this, and why?!?

With the real numbers in the Presidential race most probably showing Hillary Clinton tanking relative to the November elections, President Obama would not be above "insuring" that race riots happened all across this country, to give him the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and postpone the election as the result of those riots.

Please remember, as memorials and demonstrations regarding this incident happen across the country, rioting is precisely what the government wants you to do, as they will put those riots down "with extreme prejudice" (that means; shoot to kill).

72 TYPES OF AMERICANS THAT ARE CONSIDERED “POTENTIAL TERRORISTS” IN OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents. At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly. The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists. But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens. And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay.

Paris strikes astonishing partnership with secret Isis sponsor tied to Hillary Clinton

The City of Paris has struck a corporate partnership with French industrial giant, Lafarge, recently accused of secretly sponsoring the Islamic State (Isis or Daesh) for profit.

Documents obtained by several journalistic investigations reveal that Lafarge has paid taxes to the terror group to operate its cement plant in Syria, and even bought Isis oil for years.

Yet according to the campaign group, SumOfUs, Lafarge is the corporate partner and sand provider to the City of Paris for this summer’s Paris-Plages urban beach event. The project run by Office of the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, will create artificial beaches along the river Seine in the centre and northeast of Paris.

EEOC Decides Gadsen Flag Is Racist

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has now taken the position that displaying the Gadsden flag (AKA the “Don’t Tread on Me” flag) constitutes racial harassment.

As UCLA Professor Eugene Volokh points out in The Washington Post, the EEOC decided the case of Shelton D. [pseudonym] v. Brennan two months ago: The complainant, "Sheldon D," argued that as a black man he had been racially discriminated against because a coworker wore a hat with the Gadsen flag emblazoned on it to work.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just plan silly. If one were to employ the tortured justification on a global scale, everything would be deemed to be racist!

What is at issue is the intent.

I fly the Gadsden flag in commemoration of the American Revolution (in which some of my ancestors on my mother's side served). I don't have a racist agenda. And the fact that someone else has their own interpretation is not a justification to violate my First Amendment rights (for which my ancestors fought and died) to display that flag!

The problem is that there are far too many people whose only sense of self-value is to always find things to be offended by. Such thin-skinned and weak-principled fools are the grist for the political correctness mill!

In words of Jeffrey Sachs, “Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street.

Vladimir Putin Just Issued A Chilling Warning To The United States

As the United States continues to develop and upgrade their nuclear weapons capabilities at an alarming rate, America’s ruling class refuses to heed warnings from President Vladimir Putin that Russia will respond as necessary.

In his most recent attempt to warn his Western counterparts about the impending danger of a new nuclear arms race, Putin told the heads of large foreign companies and business associations that Russia is aware of the United States’ plans for nuclear hegemony. He was speaking at the 20th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

“We know year by year what will happen, and they know that we know,” he said.

Putin argued that the rationale the U.S. previously gave for maintaining and developing its nuclear weapons system is directed at the so-called “Iranian threat.” But that threat has been drastically reduced since the U.S. proved instrumental in reaching an agreement with Iran that should put to rest any possible Iranian nuclear potential.

Neocons Promote War on Syria: “Drone and Cruise Missile” Strikes to Take Out Assad

Ross and Tabler’s assessment on what Washington should do in Syria has imperial motives to destroy, destabilize and then control Syria and then target Hezbollah and eventually Iran. Israel would be the dominant power in the Middle East. One of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails from December 31st, 2012 was released earlier this year by Wikileaks proved that the then-Secretary of State under the Obama administration wanted to use military force to overthrow the Assad government from the start of the civil war and strengthen Israel’s security apparatus:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dennis Ross has never, ever met a potential war he didn't absolutely love.

But were I ever to talk with him about this proposal for Syria, I would have to ask the unasked question here. There is a 3,000 lb gorilla in the living room, snoozing on the Boesendorfer grand piano, and THAT... is the Russian presence in Syria, coupled with its fighting the jihadists, along-side the Syrian Army.

How will Russia respond to US strikes of this nature?!? Do Ross and Taylor believe that a war with Russia would be a "good thing" for the US to do, to get al-Assad out?!?

Because that, my friends, is a real possibility, if the US government follows their suggestion.

And Israel's "monopoly" on weapons in the Middle East just went KERPLUNK, when Erdogan locked down the Incerlik US/NATO base last month, post-coup, and that base contains an estimated 50 to 90 thermonuclear weapons.

the US and NATO personnel may well be evacuated from that base soon; but Erdogan most probably will not let those weapons out of his sight.

Turkish scientists are very bright people; they will figure out a way to over-ride the fail-safe commands, and program them with their own security codes.

Syria: CNN “Normalizes” Suicide Bombers and “Embeds Reporters” with ISIS and Al Qaeda “Freedom Fighters”

As the battle for Aleppo gathers momentum and the encircled terrorist factions respond violently to the strangulation of their supply lines and diminishment of their territory in eastern Aleppo, CNN goes to extraordinary lengths to obfuscate US connections to these terror gangs, romanticise the role of terror in Syria and even more astonishingly “normalise” suicide bombers and promote the re-branded Al Nusra as the new “moderates”.

Al Nusra Front (aka Al Qaeda in Syria) under new nomenclature suddenly become ‘freedom fighters’ (sounds familiar) and the new ‘reasonable option’ in the US mainstream media and the US voting public barely seem to notice?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The truth of the business is, there ARE no "moderate jihadists", as proven by the publicly filmed beheading of a Palestinian boy by a US-government sponsored group of jihadists a couple of weeks back.

Warning: this is NOT for the faint of heart, and is horrifically graphic.

What Countries Will Hillary Attack if Named President?

It’s terrifying to consider what actions an emotionally unstable neocon leader may do as US president, a notorious war hawk, a Wall Street tool beholden solely to powerful monied interests controlling her and husband Bill.

She’s militantly anti-Russia, anti-China, anti-Iran, anti-peace and stability. Ignore her gender and duplicitous rhetoric. A 2nd Clinton co-presidency would be disastrous - perhaps homeland tyranny and global war with nuclear weapons threatening everyone.

Nothing qualifies her for leadership, no redeeming features, plenty since the 1990s revealing her despicable record, pure evil by any standard - why she lacks credibility, popular support and trust, why common sense demands rejecting her.

I’ve said before and repeat again the disturbing likelihood of election rigging planned to make her America’s next president. She stole her party’s nomination from Sanders. Repeating grand theft in November may be baked in the cake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The better question is, should she win/steal the nomination, who WOULDN'T she attack, to please her monied backers and Israel?!?

Iran?!? China?!? Russia?!? Monaco?!? Lichtenstein?!? Andorra?!?

But of course, for people like Clinton, it's always other people's kids who conveniently get blown to bits or maimed for life in the pursuit of these endless, horrific wars of conquest.

These wars are not about freedom; honor; glory; or preserving "the American way of life".

Ultimately, these wars are all about increasing revenues for private corporate profit.

Obama at Pentagon: Syria Mess is All Assad's Fault

Two years ago this very week, in fact, President Obama informed the American people that he was launching "targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel, and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water..."

There was no chance of this very limited rescue operation expanding, he assured us:
As Commander-in-Chief, I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq. And so even as we support Iraqis as they take the fight to these terrorists, American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, because there’s no American military solution to the larger crisis in Iraq.
Two years later, the lies are laid bare. US troops are indeed fighting another war in Iraq, with the addition of wars in Syria and Libya to boot.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This man continues to lie with impunity, but even more terrifyingly, appears to have withdrawn to his own parallel universe when it comes to taking any personal responsibility whatsoever about the fluster clucks which he has either enlarged (like Afghanistan and Iraq) or Libya, where the actions of the US and NATO created a classic failed state status of its two, battling, governments.

Obama, Clinton and a permanent state of war: The never-ending bloodshed that no one wants to talk about

Back on election night 2008 I was outside the Rutgers dorms in New Brunswick, New Jersey when Barack Obama was declared the winner. Thousands of college students poured out of their dorms and onto the streets in a spontaneous celebration of the victory of “hope and change.”

Their joy and exuberance was contagious. On that night even the cops embraced them.

I often wonder where those millennials are today? How many are unemployed, have put off plans to get married, are stuck in low paying jobs, or are still living with their parents stuck on the treadmill that is their student debt.

Eight years later, the candidate that ran on “hope and change” has provided perfect continuity with the war on terror that was started by his Republican predecessor, except the civilian casualty list is much longer and the theater of the war much wider.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, in its pursuit of these bloody,preemptive wars of aggression, in order to secure resources to which this country has absolutely no moral right, coupled with the extra-judicial assassinations of people with zero due process, appear absolutely to be engineered to create more wars.

This has had, and will have, ultimately, blowback at home.

People around the world, in resource-rich areas, do not hate us because we are free; they hate us because we have assassinated their wives; children, grandparents; aunties, and uncles in the name of control over their countries' resources, which will then be controlled by the multinational corporations which contribute to political candidates, and sold only in US dollars.

As I have said many times at this blog, as a Christian pacifist activist, I abhor violence as a tactic with which to resolve geopolitical disputes; but that being said, I can understand the anger which motivates such violence.

And as rational human beings, we cannot reasonably expect that this violence will not come back to haunt this country, either in the form of alleged "lone wolf" attacks, or concerted group efforts.

But should this happen, when it happens, we have no one else to blame but ourselves, for not demanding a national dialogue about these wars, and these extrajudicial assassinations, and how, perhaps we can avoid this in the future.

I have a very bright first cousin, who is a Professor Emeritus of Constitutional Law at a very prestigious university, and we talk every couple of weeks.

One of the things he has mentioned to me several times is that this country needs to start investing significant money with which to develop alternative energy which really works, and can power a plane, or ship, or tank.

That could make the need for fossil fuels nearly obsolete, which makes the necessity of invading those countries with those resources obsolete as well.

Can you imagine what the US government could do with the money being dead-ended into wars?!? We could develop a health-care system which really works; take care of our Veterans; fix our crumbling infrastructure; and develop an educational system which could be the envy of the world.

Unfortunately, however, people in leadership do what they know; and American leadership has been at an endless war with people all over the world for years, in order to grab resources, control them, and insure that they are sold only in US dollars.

I am deeply concerned that the only way this will stop is for this country to be so soundly defeated militarily that it will never contemplate wars of aggression again.

I hope I am wrong on that last bit, but realistically, that seems to be where this country is headed.

FLASHBACK - First "Shocking" Deposition In Clinton Email Case Reveals She Did Not Use A Password

He was asked why he had proposed this solution, and he said it was “For ease of access” and, “as far as I knew, there was no requirement for her to be connected to our system” (even though he had earlier said that her having an email address assigned to her in the State Department’s system, the OpenNet system, was “required”). He said that the “ease of access” would be because of there being “fewer passwords.”

He was asked whether doing things this way was necessary in order for her to be able to access the Internet from the State Department, and he said, ”the Internet is available” to employees at the office, just as anywhere.

He was asked about the inconvenience of the State Department’s passwords system, and he said that he eliminated her need for any passwords:

A: She wouldn’t have had a password.
Q: So the computer would have just been open and be able to use without going through any security features?

Pentagon Won’t Pay $300 Million Owed to Pakistan

The US owes some $300 million in “military reimbursements” for Pakistan under he Coalition Support Fund deal, in which the Pentagon agrees to reimburse certain nations for costs incurred supporting US wars. Pakistan is normally a large recipient, because of the protracted US occupation in Afghanistan.

They’re not going to be seeing that $300 million any time soon, according to the Pentagon, however, because Congress recently moved to condition all funds to Pakistan on the Secretary of Defense certifying that Pakistan is taking military action against the Haqqani Network.

That’s not to say that Pakistan isn’t doing so, rather Secretary Ash Carter simply doesn’t seem to intend to certify it one way or another any time soon, and because of that, the Pentagon can get away with just not paying the money they owe to Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the US government is perfectly fine sending crates of millions dollars to Iran to insure the safety and return of political prisoners, yet is unwilling to pay a promised sum to Pakistan, demonstrates to me that we have more than a little schizophrenic thinking going on in Foggy Bottom.

One of the most valuable things you can do, as an individual or government, is to keep your promises; apparently, the US government has completely forgotten that little piece of wisdom.

Beware, Adams County: A "Sociopath" Will Soon Return to Duty

“I’m a man of faith, and I believe nothing happens without a reason,” insisted Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman after Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden placed the state’s imprimatur on the murder of Council rancher Jack Yantis. To the family and friends of the man who had been gunned down without cause by two of his deputies, Zollman recommended that they accept this betrayal with pious stoicism: “Leave this to a higher power watching over us.”

Adams County residents in the habit of praying would be well-advised to petition Providence for protection, and unbelievers who reside there would be wise to take up that habit. Sheriff Zollman is about to unleash a bloody-handed sociopath on the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To recap. One of Jack Yantis' bulls got loose and was struck by a vehicle. The Sheriff's department called Jack to come deal with the bull, which had to be put down because of the severity of the injuries. But when Jack showed up, he himself was gunned down by Adams County Deputy Brian Wood, who along with Deputy Cody Roland unloaded twelve rounds into Yantis, claiming he had threatened them with his bolt-action rifle, a claim not supported by the eyewitnesses. Having never missed a paycheck, Roland and Wood are returning to active duty. The reason for concern is that Wood himself has a long history of violent behavior, including threats to kill his fellow officers.

Manning’s Death Wouldn’t Be Enough for the State

This act of punishing Manning for her failed suicide attempt is just another cog in a brutal machine of torturing Manning for her perceived crimes. Just last year Manning was nearly thrown into solitary confinement for possession of LGBTQA+ reading material and (wait for it) toothpaste. There is no end to the control the state wants over Manning and people like her.

Because Manning symbolizes something that they want to crush: Rebellion.

And a government that is obsessed with control cannot allow Manning to live, or at least not in any real way. In this vein, perhaps the most damaging thing is that the military prison has consistently denied Manning, a trans woman, the necessary medical help so she can deal with dysphoria. This denial is in fact part and parcel of why Manning attempted to commit suicide in the first place among so many other factors none of us can even imagine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The additional punishment, unfortunately, may well ultimately lead to her suicide.

Should that happen,she may well be held up as a martyr by those who value peace, honesty, and transparency in government.

Obama Can’t Believe Trump Thinks The Election Will Be ‘Rigged’

President Barack Obama on Thursday appeared half amused and half stunned by Donald Trump’s latest conspiracy theory, that the election will be “rigged” against him, failing to hide his disbelief when asked about the GOP presidential nominee’s claim at a news conference.

“I don’t even really know where to start on answering this question,” he said. “Of course the election will not be rigged! What does that mean?!”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Former CIA Chief Smacks Down Donald Trump In Clinton Endorsement

Michael Morell ripped Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his lack of experience and relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as he endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a New York Times op-ed Friday.

Morell held leadership roles at the CIA for over three years, serving as the agency’s acting director on two occasions during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. He lauded Clinton in the opinion piece for being “prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument” during their shared time in the Situation Room.

Trump, on the other hand, exudes traits that “suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous, commander in chief,” Morell wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to be desperation on the cusp of madness, courtesy of the DNC.

Whatever this man was paid for his assessment, it cannot possibly have been enough!!!

Also, as reported at zerohedge.com today, we see the following stated by Mr. Morell:

Former acting director and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2010 to 2013, Michael Morell has penned a NYTimes' Op-Ed endorsing Hillary Clinton and claiming "Mr. Putin has recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation." But as one commenter details, while Michael Morell portrays himself as some sort of bipartisan warrior, this is not true. He’s been vying for a position in a potential Hillary Clinton administration for three years now. Since he won't disclose his close ties with Hillary Clinton, we will... He was an active participant in painting the Benghazi attacks as caused by YouTube video. When Hillary Clinton says 'best information provided by the intelligence community" she is referring to her man in the CIA: Michael Morel Morell was the CIA official who crafted the "talking points" on Benghazi with the Obama White House according to his own testimony in 2014 to Congress. In emails later uncovered by Congress, CIA Director David Petraeus called the resulting talking-point language 'useless.' In 2013, he left the CIA to join a Wash DC consultancy group with strong links to Hillary Clinton. Beacon Global Strategies, Morell's employer, is a ten-person firm whose co-founders include Philippe Reines, a senior counselor to Hillary Clinton when she ran the State Department. Reines is still her spokesman, serving in that capacity in what New York magazine calls 'a second full-time job. “And if she runs again... Reines will be onboard,” the magazine concluded in Ferbruary 2014. Meaning that Morell, as a senior official at Beacon, will also likely be part of the Clinton spin machine. So with that in mind, here is Morell's Op-Ed "I Ran the C.I.A. Now I'm Endorsing Hillary Clinton"... During a 33-year career at the Central Intelligence Agency, I served presidents of both parties — three Republicans and three Democrats. I was at President George W. Bush’s side when we were attacked on Sept. 11; as deputy director of the agency, I was with President Obama when we killed Osama bin Laden in 2011. I am neither a registered Democrat nor a registered Republican. In my 40 years of voting, I have pulled the lever for candidates of both parties. As a government official, I have always been silent about my preference for president. No longer. On Nov. 8, I will vote for Hillary Clinton. Between now and then, I will do everything I can to ensure that she is elected as our 45th president. Two strongly held beliefs have brought me to this decision. First, Mrs. Clinton is highly qualified to be commander in chief. I trust she will deliver on the most important duty of a president — keeping our nation safe. Second, Donald J. Trump is not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security. I spent four years working with Mrs. Clinton when she was secretary of state, most often in the White House Situation Room. In these critically important meetings, I found her to be prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument.

Apparently, Mr. Morell is either singularly unacquainted with the fact that Osama Bin Laden died of natural consequences in December of 2001, or he is lying through his teeth; the highly staged assassination of some poor schmuck in Abbotabad in 2011 was simply a publicity stunt to make Obama look "Presidential" or "Commander-in Chief-ish".

And one has to wonder why Seal Team 6, which conducted this raid, as stated by Vice President Biden, died "mysteriously", in a chopper crash, after being fired upon (allegedly by the Taliban).

As reported at foxnews.com on 26 December, 2001:

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader. "The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said. Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.

HORRIFIC VIDEO SHOWS ISRAELI BORDER POLICE TERRORIZE 8-YO PALESTINIAN GIRL AND STEAL HER BIKE

An Israeli cop has been suspended after a heartbreaking video was posted online showing two officers terrorize an innocent 8-year-old Palestinian girl.

The video, which was taken last week and surfaced on Tuesday, shows two Israeli border officers confronting a terrified 8-year-old Palestinian girl, Anwar Burqan, on Hebron’s al-Ibrahimi St., demanding she stop on the roadside. When the first officer confronts the girl he stomps on her bike and berates her until she runs away screaming and crying.

After the girl runs away, another officer walks up, grabs her bike and throws it into the bushes.

According to Haaretz, large swaths of al-Ibrahimi St. are closed to Palestinian traffic. Apparently, the girl’s bicycle was confiscated because she was riding in a part of the street closed to Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, it takes a really MANLY Israeli cop to destroy a little Palestinian girl's bike for inadvertently driving on a portion of a street which is restricted for "her kind" of human, doesn't it?!?

Netanyahu will probably see to it that this guy gets promoted!!

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ARE KILLING US – MEET ONE OF THE DOCTORS WHO JUST PUBLISHED A PAPER ABOUT IT

“Any drug causing more side effects than benefits will not be called a medicine. It would rather be called a poison.”

Here, we are talking about antidepressants. Dr. Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence), is currently working to make the world aware of the fact that the side effects associated with the several pharmaceutical grade drugs are actually killing people all over the world. According to his research, 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side effects of correctly-used prescription drugs. He published many papers reasoning the fact that antidepressants are making people suffer with its harmful effects to a large extent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would far rather take my supplements and exercise than trust any doctor's prescription at this point.

A number of years ago, I had joint pain so intense that I could not play my acoustic piano or harp. The HMO we went to gave me numerous tests, but none that ever got to the source of my discomfort.

I was put on a pain medication by my doctors, which barely managed the pain.

However, I found out later that the drug company which manufactured this drug was paying doctors to prescribe this medication, even if it was "off book" (had never been studied relative to the kind of pain for which it was being prescribed.)

That was probably the big reason I was never given the one test I should have been given to find out what the root of my problem was; for chemical sensitivities.

When Mike and I came back from San Francisco, where he was working on a project, the pain returned with a vengeance. I went to see my orthopedist, had an x-ray done, and this man said he could see nothing in the x-ray to explain the pain I was feeling.

I remember coming home in tears and asking Mike, "Can you please tell me WHEN in my schedule do I have the time to be a hypochondriac?!?"

He did some research on line, and found out that the kind of joint pain I was experiencing frequently came from sensitivity to formaldehyde precursors, which are ubiquitous in lower-end cosmetics and cleaning products. We read labels, and threw out a bunch of cosmetics, and cleansers.

Within 24 hours, I was able to walk without pain for the first time in half a decade.

The next time I went to my orthopedist, I threw the confirming research down on his office table, and told him, "The next time you have a client who comes in with these kind of symptoms, but you see nothing on the x-rays, have them tested for chemical sensitivity! You could have saved me from unnecessary pain and suffering if you and your team had done this from the beginning of my symptoms manifesting!!"

When the Pfizer story got out, the two doctors who had been treating me either "retired", or were summarily fired from my HMO.

This is why, in the future, I will have absolutely no problem asking a physician point-blank if they are compensated for prescribing whatever drug they are prescribing for me; call it a patient's right to know.

National Guard, DEA & state police just raided an 81-year-old cancer patient's organic garden to 'protect' you

In a gross display of wasted taxpayer dollars, dozens of Massachusetts National Guard personnel, operating under a grant from the DEA, alongside Massachusetts State Police, descended into the backyard of an 81-year-old cancer patient in a raid last week — to protect society from the dangers of his four marijuana plants.

NICARAGUAN PRESIDENT REMOVES POLITICAL OPPOSITION FROM CONGRESS, NOMINATES WIFE AS VICE PRESIDENT

While Latin America’s love of the political left has decreased as the oily money runs dry (e.g. Venezuela), one leader continues to strengthen his political grip across all corners of his country. Daniel Ortega, the 1980’s guerilla fighter who rose to fame by removing the Somoza dictatorship, is now creating his own version of authoritarianism.

Nicaragua is set to hold presidential elections in November 2016, where Ortega will run for his third term (after changing the constitutional term limits). Evidently, Ortega is the overwhelming favorite given that he banned the main opposition party from running. Moreover, last week he removed all political opposition from Congress, essentially guaranteeing unanimous support from the legislative, judicial and executive branch. He stands alone.

This week, he nominated his wife as his running mate, and guaranteed that the Presidency will remain a family-run business.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the United States is absolutely no stranger to political dynasties either, as witnessed by the rise of the Bush family, and the Clintons!!

FBI SEEKS 'SECRET' CONTROL OF SMARTPHONES

The FBI wants the ability to surreptitiously turn your smartphone into a video- and audio-recording device without your knowledge, and it is calling on the high-tech industry to supply it with an app to perform those surveillance functions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My understanding is that they already have this capability.
