DEMOCRATS ABANDON WORKERS TO TRUMP

***
Trump has found the potential key to victory because he realizes that the Democratic Party has given up on these workers, who were once considered to be their main constituency. These workers have become even more alienated from their jobs, as Marx predicted, because their jobs no longer exist. And according to Trump, it’s because the Democrats—especially the Clintons—embraced bad trade agreements like NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Anti-US rally staged at NATO Incirlik air base in Turkey (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

A crowd has been protesting near the Incirlik military base in Adana, Turkey. The facility houses US and NATO forces. The demonstrators are calling for the closure of the base, where arrests and searches were made in connection with the failed coup.

Regional television has been broadcasting the rally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I would suspect that the demonstration was government-sponsored, I am betting that it will only be a matter of time before Erdogan demands that NATO leave the base, and most probably, without the 51 bombs stored there.

Hacked DNC Emails’ Startling Implications

Not since JournoList, the forum of left-wing journalists who coordinated their messaging to support the Democrats, has there been such a pile of smoking guns proving that the left-wing, so-called mainstream media, are, in fact, the public relations arm of the Democrat Party.

>>>

The Democratic National Convention was planned as an event to demonstrate party unity as Democrats from around the country come together to crown Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential nominee. But undermining that unity was a series of leaked emails demonstrating that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had its thumb on the scale the whole time. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporters who complained about the party’s partiality toward Hillary Clinton now have their proof that the process was rigged. “The messages [from the DNC] showed members of the committee’s communications team musing about pushing the narrative that the Sanders campaign was inept and trying to raise questions publicly about whether he was an atheist,” reported The New York Times.
***
And perhaps most importantly, the leak revealed the likelihood that Mrs. Clinton’s reckless and grossly negligent handling of classified materials for the four years she was secretary of state almost certainly landed those emails in the hands of the Russians, the Chinese, and various other intelligence agencies around the world, making her subject to blackmail if she were to ever become president.

Turkey Shakes Up Armed Forces, U.S. Says Purges Harming Cooperation

Turkey has begun overhauling its armed forces following a failed coup, but its NATO ally the United States complained that the purges of generals and officers were hindering cooperation in the fight against Islamic State.

The military announced late on Thursday the promotion of 99 colonels to the rank of general or admiral, part of a shake-up that left General Staff chief Hulusi Akar and the army, navy and air force commanders in their posts.

The announcement came shortly after the dishonorable discharge of nearly 1,700 military personnel over their alleged roles in the abortive July 15-16 putsch, in which at least 246 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured. About 40 percent of all generals and admirals have been dismissed since the coup.

President Tayyip Erdogan, who ordered the restructuring, accuses U.S.-based Muslim preacher and scholar Fethullah Gulen of orchestrating the coup and wants Washington to extradite him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the White House, State Department, Pentagon, and Congress; in the words of my late grandmother, the horse is already out of the barn.

Rather than complaining at Erdogan, who is very suspicious that the US and NATO were part of the coup against him, you should be crafting a reasonable solution for getting those 2500 NATO troops, (of whom 1500 are Americans) and the 51 bombs, out of Incerlik, and on their way home.

Unfortunately, that will most probably not happen until Imam Gulen, who Erdogan believes is the initiator of the coup, is extradited from Pennsylvania to Istanbul.

Obama is most probably not going to allow that to happen, unless Gulen, a CIA operative, is quite dead, and delivered home in a coffin.

Turkey is pivoting to Russia, and may well leave NATO at any time, believing that a military partnership with Russia and China is more to their benefit at this point.

The best thing the US and NATO can do is cut their losses, and get out of Turkey; this will be logistically uncomfortable, but most probably the non-worst option at the moment.

They may have to negotiate to enhance the capacities the Souda NATO base in Crete, but such a move may be well worth the effort.

Will Preemptive Accusations Against Russia Cover Up Voting Fraud?

Why do we see such an orchestrated attempt to preemptively accuse Russia of potentially manipulating U.S. voting? This without ANY evidence that Russia ever has or would attempt to do so? Are there already plans for such manipulations that need a plausible foreign culprit as cover up story? Or is there a color revolution in preparation to eventually disenfranchise the election winner?

ANOTHER '90s scandal returns to haunt the Clintons - billionaire accused of being front for Chinese Communist bid to influence Bill's 1996 election finally faces being questioned after years on the run

A Chinese billionaire at the center of a 20-year-old Clinton foreign donor scandal is being called in to answer questions from Congress about his role in the influence-buying scheme, in a move that could revive yet another Clinton controversy from the 1990s.

The House Oversight Committee told Daily Mail Online that it will seek an interview with Ng Lap Seng, 68, who evaded congressional investigators for years.

He has now re-appeared in the United States and is being held in New York on unrelated bribery charges.

One campaign group is even suggesting that Congress grant him immunity from the charges in return for testifying.

Ng, a Macau businessman with ties to the Chinese government, was accused of funneling over $1 million in illegal foreign donations to support Bill Clinton's reelection campaign in 1996.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for this guy to become "very depressed" in jail to the point of "getting Arkancided" in some spectacular, breath-taking manner, before he is supposed to testify, as he was very much one of the "linchpins" in the Chinagate scandal.

As reported at en.wikipedia.org:

The 1996 United States campaign finance controversy was an alleged effort by the People's Republic of China to influence domestic American politics prior to and during the Clinton administration and also involved the fund-raising practices of the administration itself. While questions regarding the U.S. Democratic Party's fund-raising activities first arose over a Los Angeles Times article published on September 21, 1996,[1] China's alleged role in the affair first gained public attention when Bob Woodward and Brian Duffy of The Washington Post published a story stating that a United States Department of Justice investigation into the fund-raising activities had uncovered evidence that agents of China sought to direct contributions from foreign sources to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) before the 1996 presidential campaign. The journalists wrote that intelligence information had shown the Chinese embassy in Washington, D.C. was used for coordinating contributions to the DNC[2] in violation of United States law forbidding non-American citizens or non-permanent residents from giving monetary donations to United States politicians and political parties. A Republican investigator of the controversy stated the Chinese plan targeted both presidential and congressional United States elections, while Democratic Senators said the evidence showed the Chinese targeted only congressional elections. The Chinese government denied all accusations. Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie[edit] The most significant activity by Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie was a $450,000 attempted donation from him to Clinton's legal defense fund, which Trie allegedly delivered in two envelopes each containing several checks and money orders. The fund immediately rejected $70,000 and deposited the remainder, but ordered an investigation of the source. The investigation found that some of the money orders were made out in different names but with the same handwriting, and sequentially numbered. The fund then rejected the donation entirely, and returned the deposited funds two months after the initial contribution.[6] Born in Taiwan, Trie emigrated to the U.S. in 1974. He eventually became an American citizen and co-owner of a restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas. The 1997 special investigation describes Trie as having attempted to develop an international trading business (Daihatsu International Trading Corporation), having maintained or accessed accounts in Little Rock and Washington, D.C. into which Macau-based real estate businessman Ng Lap Seng wired >$1M USD from Macau and Hong Kong accounts, and as having never succeeded in the trading business (based on bank and tax records indicating substantive income only from Ng).[7][page needed] In Little Rock, Trie befriended Clinton, then governor of Arkansas. In addition to the attempted donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie and his immediate family donated $220,000 to the DNC which was also later returned.[7][page needed] Immediately after the donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie sent a letter to President Clinton that expressed concern about America's intervention in tensions arising from China's military exercises being conducted near Taiwan. Trie told the President in his letter that war with China was a possibility should U.S. intervention continue: ...[O]nce the hard parties of the Chinese military incline to grasp U.S. involvement as foreign intervention, is [sic] U.S. ready to face such [a] challenge[?]... [I]t is highly possible for China to launch [sic] real war based on its past behavior in [sic] Sino-Vietnam War and Zhen Bao Tao war with Russia. (Charlie Trie, letter to President Clinton, March 21, 1996)."[7][page needed] After Congressional investigations turned to Trie in late 1996, he left the country for China.[7][page needed] Trie returned to the U.S. in 1998 and was convicted and sentenced to three years probation and four months home detention for violating federal campaign finance laws by making political contributions in someone else's name and for causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).[8]

But wait, the scandal gets even deeper! As reported at Phyllis Schaffly's report eagleforum.org in June of 1998:

Now we know why the Democrats were so vicious in their attacks on Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) and Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). Theirs were the committees that were closing in on the China connection, the scandal that can bring down the Clinton presidency, the scandal that has made Congressmen start to utter the T word (treason). A series of front-page news stories in the New York Times (May 15, 16, 17) essentially vindicated Thompson's charge that the Chinese Communist Government tried to influence the 1996 U.S. election with campaign contributions. The fact that Clinton personally issued the waivers to allow shipments of U.S. technology that greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of Communist China's missiles is grounds for impeachment, regardless of whether or not there was any quid pro quo for those decisions. U.S. space technology was just what China needs to make intercontinental ballistic missiles and point them more accurately at U.S. cities. And he did it despite the objections of the U.S. State Department, Defense Department, Justice Department, and intelligence agencies. Because China shared U.S. technology and equipment with Pakistan, Clinton is also responsible for India starting the nuclear race in Asia. India has fought three wars with its neighbor, Pakistan, since the end of World War II and looks upon Pakistan's new military capabilities as a direct threat. Clinton's policy decisions were, on their face, damaging and dangerous to U.S. national security. And the calendar provides an ominous frame of reference. When Clinton's policy decisions that dramatically benefited China's military capability and Loral's profits, and the hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign donations from the Chinese government and from Loral, are all placed on the calendar, the sequence shows a pattern of corruption that cannot be ignored. That's the real campaign finance scandal.

Bill Clinton betrayed this country for Chinese election contribution cash; this is why I hope Seng is wearing his Kevlar undies in prison, because, with what he knows and can tell to a Grand Jury, he may well single-handedly, destroy Hillary's presidential bid, if the testimony is held before the elections.

Central Bankers are Driving Us All Into the Dirt

One of the major triggers I’ve been warning about is already happening, even before we understand and/or admit that we are in a recession. Global corporate debt now sits at a record $51 trillion and is poised to hit $75 trillion by 2020 – just four years away. If interest rates rise and the economy slows, it will be very hard for companies to roll these bonds over – and then we get what S&P Global Ratings is calling “Crexit.” The bond markets dry up for corporate lending, especially higher-yield junk bonds. This would set off a chain of corporate defaults and bankruptcies that would cause central banks to start to lose control of the economy, as they did in 2008 forward.

Hillary Forgets Herself

The Democratic nominee reintroduces herself,

In the hours before their candidate’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton’s aides said that she would take the occasion to “reintroduce herself” to the American people.>>
***
But if you need a reintroduction to Mrs. Clinton, we will oblige: She is an opportunist without anything resembling a conviction with the exception of her unwavering commitment to abortion, a “public servant” who along with her husband grew vastly wealthy exploiting her political connections and renting access to everybody from Goldman Sachs to Vladimir Putin, a petty, grasping, vindictive, meretricious time-server whose incompetence and dishonesty have been proved everywhere from Little Rock to Benghazi. Dressed symbolically all in white (as though she were a bride or a monarch enjoying her privilège du blanc), she delivered a speech that was one part It Takes a Village and eleven parts old State of the Union speeches from Barack Obama and her husband. Her presentation was her usual hectoring — she is not capable of speaking in another mode —>>

THE DRAMATIC FAILURE OF GLOBALISATION

According to wikipedia, Globalisation is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas and other aspects of culture. However, over the last ten years there has been a sea change decline in all the indicators that would measure the success of this model. Democracy, economic growth, freedom and the principles of an interchange of world views and culture has been all but abandoned to a vice like grip of globalisation driven by corporate principles of power and greed resulting in war, terrorism, a biblical refugee crisis, fear and a fully co-opted media.

The Economist has just published its annual index on democracy. They found that out of 167 countries, only twenty are “full democracies”. Less than 13 per cent of the world’s countries can now claim to be a democracy. Given that America has graciously forced so much democracy on the world, one could be forgiven for thinking all is not well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real, inescapable fact here is that globalization only "works" for people who are already massively rich; the"trickle down" of profitability to working class people from globalization has never been a reality; only an empty phrase, created to "comfort" those who have lost their jobs through globalization's relentless offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs to the centers of the lowest-cost labor, who are now working two or three minimum-wage jobs, maxing out their credit cards, and may well never be able to be financially solvent again.

There is a lot of economic desperation going on this country right now, and a real sense of having been utterly financially betrayed with by the Globalist Powers that Be in order to enrich their own wallets.

I do not know how that sense of desperation is ultimately going to manifest; but as a Christian pacifist activist, I sincerely caution people NOT to give this government the kind of confrontation in which they have expended billions to put down with extreme prejudice.

Assessing a Long, Plodding Sales Pitch

Assessing a Long, Plodding Sales Pitch From Hillary Clinton

Tonight’s acceptance speech by Hillary Clinton was not particularly enjoyable to listen to for 57 minutes, but it probably did the job. In fact, if she doesn’t get a sizable polling bump out of this convention, which largely worked and dodged the problems that Democrats feared, then it will be time for Hillary and her allies to panic.
By her standards, this was pretty good delivery. There were occasional moments where she enjoyed herself, speaking with genuine affection for Bill and Chelsea. Yet I’ve never seen anyone look so unhappy while telling us, “I’m so happy this day has come.”

She tried to reach out to her skeptics, declaring, “I get it that some people just don’t know what to make of me.”>>>

You can tell that she feels she has a newfound purpose because Donald Trump is her rival.>>>

Even more, she gets to flatter Americans by telling them that voting for her is an act of national virtue:>>>

CLINTON CAMPAIGN: RUSSIA RIGGING US ELECTION BY EXPOSING HOW WE RIGGED ELECTION

Russia is manipulating the 2016 U.S. presidential election by leaking hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) servers — emails that show the DNC rigged and manipulated the Democratic primary in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Call it an exercise in hypocrisy, or call it a deflection to detract from the fact that America’s political process is corrupt beyond belief. Either way, this is the narrative prevailing in the media as the Democratic Party, led by Clinton surrogates, attempts to downplay its own internal corruption by pinning the blame on Russia in what can be described as a “neo-Red Scare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the flip?!?

This charge against Russia makes absolutely zero sense whatsoever.

And the DNC's attempt to use this "excuse" as the reason why the emails got hacked shows that they have utterly zero respect whatsoever for Americans' having the capability to think logically.

But it does demonstrate, painfully clearly, that neither the DNC nor Candidate Clinton can take personal responsibility for anything; that is one the factors that makes a Clinton presidency so horrifically dangerous, both for this country, and the world.

The plain, miserable and unvarnished truth is that Clinton is, at the end of the day, one of the elites; these are the people whose interests she will defend and enrich; not those of We the People.

Under her watch, we can expect more wars; a return to the draft of both our young men and young women; more income inequality; more American jobs outsourced and offshored; more enhanced military and financial aid to Israel (which is, BTW, illegal, per the Symington Amendment) with which to crush and ultimately destroy the Palestinian people and their hopes of statehood; and more economic misery in general.

HEDGE-FUND MONEY: $48.5 MILLION FOR HILLARY CLINTON, $19,000 FOR DONALD TRUMP

Owners and employees of hedge funds have made $122.7 million in campaign contributions this election cycle, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics—more than twice what they gave in the entire 2012 cycle and nearly 14% of total money donated from all sources so far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is very publicly owned by the corporations which support her; this means that there will be absolutely nothing in her platform to seriously improve the state of affairs for We the People, many of whom are struggling like crazy just to stay afloat.

But I guarantee you this: those corporations who own her will simply get more wealthy under her watch, because all of her newly proposed tax burdens will fall upon us, rather than them, marginalizing and destroying what is left of the middle class in this country to absolute zero.

Welcome to the Communist Party, U.S.A.

How Hillary’s scary speech revealed her mistake in wearing a white pants suit to her coronation.

Wearing a white pantsuit, Hillary Clinton plodded out on stage to accept the nomination that she had schemed, plotted, lied, cheated, rigged and eventually fixed a series of elections to obtain.

Then she claimed that she was accepting the nomination of a race she had rigged with “humility”.

Humility is not the first word that comes to mind when thinking of Hillary Clinton. It is not even the last word. It is not in the Hillary dictionary at all. But this convention was a desperate effort to humanize Hillary. Everyone, including her philandering husband and dilettante daughter, down to assorted people she had met at one point, were brought up on stage to testify that she really is a very nice person.

This wasn’t a convention. It was a series of character witnesses for a woman with no character>>>

The Power Of "Nyet" - How One Word Staggered Imperial Washington

The way things are supposed to work on this planet is like this: in the United States, the power structures (public and private) decide what they want the rest of the world to do. They communicate their wishes through official and unofficial channels, expecting automatic cooperation. If cooperation is not immediately forthcoming, they apply political, financial and economic pressure. If that still doesn’t produce the intended effect, they attempt regime change through a color revolution or a military coup, or organize and finance an insurgency leading to terrorist attacks and civil war in the recalcitrant nation. If that still doesn’t work, they bomb the country back to the stone age. This is the way it worked in the 1990s and the 2000s, but as of late a new dynamic has emerged.

No, We Don’t Know Yet That Russia is Behind DNC Email Hacks. Here’s Why.

There is a strong narrative underway. It was propelled largely by Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, and members of the Democratic National Committee after news broke over the weekend that thousands of embarassing internal emails were posted to WikiLeaks. The theory goes that the Russian government is behind the hack because they want to meddle in U.S. politics to help Donald Trump (who is “cozy” with Vladimir Putin).

Different media organizations continue to cite “government sources” as confirmation of Russia’s evil intentions. (Russia has denied any involvement). And, if you actually examine the facts, you will see that we simply don’t have enough yet to prove this theory out. Yes, there are some indicators that it could be Russia. Yes, there is reportedly metadata hidden in early documents that show they were edited with Russian language settings. Yes, Crowd Strike, a cyber firm hired by the DNC, claims that they found two hacker groups associated

Video: Arizona woman killed by officer held medical scissors

They train them to kill for non-compliance with orders. They train them to say the magic words,"I felt my life was endangered". A cops job is to bring in offenders for due process not execute summarily anyone they feel threatened by.Why did they become a cop? 15th most dangerous job in America. In the olden days the police would have slapped the medical scissors out of her hand with their billies and carted her off to jail,bruised but alive! And Native Americans are #1 on the shoot list,not blacks!

WINSLOW, Ariz. (AP) — A Navajo woman who was fatally shot by an Arizona police officer earlier this year had medical scissors in her hand as she approached the lawman, body camera video shows.

The shooting of the Navajo woman led tribal officials to urge the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the treatment of American Indians in towns that border the Navajo Nation. A Justice Department spokesman did not immediately say Wednesday whether the office planned to do so.

Ten things less likely to kill you than the cops

1,208[i] people were killed by the cops in America in 2015. The number was 1,111[ii] in 2014. With 624[iii] killed so far in 2016, we're on track for 1,168 by the end of the year. Based on an average of 1,160 people killed by police per year in America, let's look at your odds of being killed by a cop relative to some other common (and not-so-common) things that might kill you.

Living in America...

You're 1.8 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by the heat.
You're 20 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a bee, wasp, or hornet.
You're 24 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by lightning.
You're 41 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a dog.
You're 53 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a terrorist attack.............

So forty years ago, the CIA’s, “Operation Mockingbird,” went into full swing. The goal of the program was simply to control all mechanisms of opinion - the print news, the public opinion polls and the television news media. Their thinking was, if you control what people think, you’ve won the war before it has even begun.

All these lawless-chains they forged, over the last 30 years.
Because the requisite trials will bring down this government,
without the need for a violent revolution.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY OFFICIAL PLATFORM IS PRO-FRACKING, PRO-MONSANTO, PRO-TPP, AND ANTI-GMO LABELING

Because of the diverse audience we attract, there are a lot of Natural News readers who are still supporting the Democrats. If you're one of those people, it's time for you to question what you're really supporting because you may not be aware that the democratic party openly supports fracking, Monsanto, vaccine mandates, chemical agriculture and the TPP. On top of that, they're mostly opposed to GMO labeling, too. Only Sen. Sanders really stood up to the biotech industry on that point, and now after the DNC email leaks, you know how the democrat establishment hosed Sanders with a vindictive smear campaign to destroy his chances of winning the nomination.

The truth is, the Democrat party is not a party of progressive ideas. Even the progressive news website Common Dreams has authored this piece blasting the DNC for its betrayals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By voting for Hillary Clinton this November, you will be voting for a criminal machine; a narcotopcracy; a Frankenstinian environment hater; a lover of war and the military industrial complex.

You will be voting for more wars, the re-introduction of the draft, and more offshored/outsourced jobs.

The "Clinton Cash" documentary has been bumped up to the top of the WRH website, so please do take a look.

NOBODY KNOWS WHO’S PAYING FOR THE PRIVATELY FUNDED DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION

Earlier this week, in my article titled, Hillary Clinton is in Deep Trouble – “Hordes of Wall Street Executives” Descend Upon Philly, I highlighted how all the Wall Street executives and lobbyists who avoided the RNC were excitedly flooding into the Democratic Convention. Here’s an excerpt:

Lobbyists are being welcomed back into the fold of the Democratic Party as the Obama era draws to a close.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has accepted more than $9 million in bundled donations from registered lobbyists, while the DNC has rolled back the lobbyist bans that Obama put into place.

“In 2008 and 2012, there was no integration with the [Obama] campaign,” said Al Mottur, a senior Democratic lobbyist at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, adding that he would have liked to have helped. “Now, the campaign is welcoming — they’re open to us. That’s why I’ve done as much work for her as I’ve done on her behalf.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, lobbyists are flocking to the Clinton campaign; she's openly for sale, and will take anyone's money.

Speaking of which, there is a very "interesting" correlation in the funds the Clinton Foundation openly accepted from various North African and Middle Eastern countries. As reported at breitbart.com on 14 June of this year:

Hillary Clinton Took Millions from Anti-LGBT Countries That Jail and Execute Gays

In her response to the Islamic terror attack in Orlando, Hillary Clinton called on the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait to stop allowing their citizens to fund terrorists and to “stop supporting radical schools and mosques.” However, she failed to mention that the Clinton Foundation has spent years accepting millions in donations from countries that throw homosexuals in prison, fine them, sentence them to hard labor, and even execute them for the “crime” of being gay.

But trust me, there's a lot more ugly with these countries from which she took this money.

So what else do the countries of Algeria, the Sultanate of Brunei, Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE all have in common, in the 21st century?!?

The all still permit the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.

Countries which still permit female genital mutilation

The correlation is nothing less than completely staggering.

So I have an ethics question to ask of the Clinton campaign; how in the name of heaven, as a person who is allegedly pro-woman, and pro-lgbtq, could Hillary Clinton knowingly take money from countries which fine, imprison, torture, and slaughter members of the lgbtq community, and permit female genital mutilation?!?

Hey, DNC: I'm waiting.....and your silence is thoroughly deafening.

Tailgunner Hillary and the Putin Hack

What Robby Mook did is pure McCarthyism

On July 24 Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook carefully avoided naming his sources when he told when he told ABC’s “This Week” host and former Bill Clinton administration aide-de-media George Stephanopoulos “It’s troubling that some experts are now telling us that this was done by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump.”

Mook’s this was a cache of some 19,000 emails and associated documents stolen from a Democratic National Committee server and released on July 22 by Julian Assange’s highly-suspect hack-and-intimidate operation that goes by the nom de guerre Wikileaks.

Though Mook provided no proof that Russian agents committed the crime, he clearly painted Russia as an American adversary acting with malign intent.>>>
***
Mook provided no proof that Putin favors Trump over Hillary Clinton>>>
***
Mook’s statement had elements of a “circular cause and consequence” fallacy, where the author of the statement claims the consequence of the an action or phenomenon is its root cause>>>
***
Mook’s rumination also contained an implicit accusation of disloyalty, one laced with disturbing as well as richly ironic echoes of Wisconsin Sen. Joseph R. “Tailgunner Joe” McCarthy’s notorious “Enemies from Within” speech (February 9, 1950)

FORD PLUNGES AFTER WARNING "WE DON'T SEE GROWTH", WARNS US AUTO INDUSTRY "HAS PLATEAUED"

The reason Ford stock is plunging this morning is not so much the company's earnings miss, when the US auto giant reported Q2 EPS of $0.52, below the $0.60 expected, but because in some startling language, CEO Mark Fields laid out a very gloomy picture of the future.

As the company reported in its press release, it told investors to "expect another strong year of results, and Ford committed to full year guidance of company pretax profit and operating margin equal to or better than last year; however, company now sees risks challenging achieving guidance. Entire Ford team working to mitigate the risks."

A key part of the problem is one shown here repeatedly over the past year, namely the troubling increase in auto inventories, which are now at 5 year highs, and the inventory to sales ratio back to levels seen during the last recession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about where you live, but here in Hawaii, auto companies are leasing cars at absolute giveaway prices.

But people here are hanging on to their vehicles the best they can, because they absolutely don't have the money to get a newer car, and are afraid they can't make the lease payments, no matter how reasonable those may be.

And as a sign of how bad the times are, on several local radio stations, there's an ad for a dealer offering "repoed" (repossessed)vehicles at substantially lowered prices.

Mike and I will look, shake our heads, and say, "They obviously cannot move product, to have lease prices THIS low."

LEAKED DATA REVEALS HOW THE U.S. TRAINS VAST NUMBERS OF FOREIGN SOLDIERS AND POLICE WITH LITTLE OVERSIGHT

“What you have stumbled across is a systematic lack of strategic thinking, a systematic lack of evaluation, but a massive commitment of people and money and time in a growing number of countries,” said Gordon Adams, formerly a senior White House official for national security and foreign policy budgets. “I think the word ‘system’ is a misnomer. This is a headless system,” he said.

The investigation raises serious questions about U.S. government oversight, safeguards, and accountability. The investigation found:

• A global training network without any coherent strategy, carried out by scores of agencies and offices with no effective oversight, centralized planning, or a clear statement of objectives.
• The lack of any means of testing and evaluation, let alone a comprehensive way to count or track foreign trainees.
• Vetting procedures designed to weed out human rights abusers that examine trainees so rapidly that experts question their worth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, indeed, a flustercluck, with absolutely no Federal will to fix it in any responsible, meaningful way.

A Reminder To The Nation: Putin’s Leadership Is Better Than Obama’s

Donald Trump Reiterates: Putin’s Leadership Better Than Obama’s

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Donald J. Trump called President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia “a better leader” than President Obama, offering the praise in an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Thursday, just a day after saying he hoped Russian intelligence services had successfully hacked Hillary Clinton’s email.

Asked about comments he had made Wednesday at a news conference in Florida, where he said “Putin has much better leadership qualities than Obama,” Mr. Trump reiterated his views in slightly starker terms.

“I said he’s a better leader than Obama,” Mr. Trump said. “I said he’s a better leader than Obama, because Obama’s not a leader, so he’s certainly doing a better job than Obama is, and that’s all.”

THIS VIDEO OF ANTI-HILLARY PROTESTERS IN A “FREE SPEECH CAGE” AT THE DNC IS A TRULY PATHETIC IMAGE OF MODERN AMERICAN “FREEDOM”

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or 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. — The First Amendment

Congress shall make no law… but they shall erect a “free speech cage”.

Yeah, this really looks like freedom. Look at these people. Is this a zoo, you might ask?

No. It’s protesters exercising their First Amendment rights to shout “Hell no, DNC! We won’t vote for Hillary!” over and over outside the corrupt dog and pony show that is the Democratic National Convention — in a rusty metal cage that looks like something out of the horror film Silent Hill.

What a sad, pathetic testament to modern American “freedom” this is.

And if Hitlery treats free speech like that during her campaign, imagine what she would do as President!

Donald Trump Plays Starring Role at the Democratic Convention

For the first two nights of the Democratic National Convention convention, Donald Trump’s presence was hardly felt as the party struggled with its own unification. On Wednesday night, the Republican nominee starred front-and-center, as a parade of speakers delivered blistering assaults and withering critiques of his policy positions, judgment, and preparedness for the White House.

The Democrats’ well-deserved WikiLeaks blowback

Over at the CIA and the National Security Agency headquarters, they must be really enjoying watching Democrats in Philadelphia squirm over WikiLeaks’s exposure of tens of thousands of internal Democratic Party emails. There’s a word for what is happening in the intelligence community:

Blowback.

Throughout the entirety of the Obama administration, nothing was done as WikiLeaks damaged our national security with its serial leaks of highly classified intelligence documents.
-When in 2010 WikiLeaks released more than 76,000 secret intelligence documents in 2010 - exposing “the identities of at least 100 Afghans who were informing on the Taliban
-When in 2011 WikiLeaks released a trove of classified documents it dubbed the “Gitmo Files”
-When in 2014 WikiLeaks released classified CIA documents exposing how CIA operatives maintain cover while traveling through airports
-When in 2015 WikiLeaks released documents revealing that the U.S. government was spying on its allies
-When in 2016 WikiLeaks published secret details of European Union military operations to intercept refugee boats traveling to Europe
-When in 2016 WikiLeaks exposed top-secret documents describing NSA intercepts of foreign government communications
-But WikiLeaks has finally crossed a “red line” (pun intended) that has earned it the Democrats’ outrage. Instead of targeting the CIA or the NSA, WikiLeaks has gone after an organization Democrats actually care about — the Democratic National Committee

ABU GHRAIB TORTURE COMPANY RE-HIRED FOR SYRIA - HOW ISIS WILL BENEFIT

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. 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 infringes 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.

Stop Drinking the Kool-Aid — US elections are a trick and a fraud

The nation is drowning in debt, crippled by a slowing economy, overrun by militarized police, swarming with surveillance, besieged by endless wars and a military industrial complex intent on starting new ones, and riddled with corrupt politicians at every level of government. All the while, we’re arguing over which corporate puppet will be given the honor of stealing our money, invading our privacy, abusing our trust, undermining our freedoms, and shackling us with debt and misery for years to come. Nothing taking place on Election Day will alleviate the suffering of the American people.

Protesters Rage Against the DNC: “Hillary Didn’t Get the Nomination. The Nomination Was Stolen”

Corruption is officially “in” at the DNC as Hillary Clinton has secured her place on the Democratic party ticket, despite a huge wave of discontent at the convention among dissatisfied and outraged Bernie delegates and supporters.

For many, Bernie Sanders put the final nail in the coffin of any remaining illusions anyone should have about whether or not this is a “democratic” society. As a gesture towards his ‘unity’ deal with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders moved to suspend the convention rules and “select” Hillary on the basis of “acclamation” – in other words, a voice vote. For someone who drew a huge following vehemently campaigning against her, Bernie gone well out of his way to endorse and praise Hillary, but many of his followers aren’t about to follow him that far.

Regardless, it is now officially Hillary on the ballot in November, and things have never seemed more dangerous for this country.

Germany May Use Internal Army to Combat Terrorism As Europeans Told to “Expect Attacks” On a Daily Basis, by Mac Slavo

Mass murder and shocking acts of terrorism have become commonplace – and are happening on a daily basis now. The EU is facing an all-out war against foreign invaders who are picking off random targets and fueling chaos, and they are ready to institute a police state in desperate attempt to control it.

Things are getting quite serious.

As RT reported:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing European countries should be doing, in a concerted way, and with one very loud voice, is telling the US government that it MUST stop these horrific wars of conquest which are driving this massive influx of refugees in the first place.

And yes, these attacks are horrific and repugnant; but they are so random as to probably not be able to be controlled by ramping up a police state and martial law.

My answer to the question of "cui bono?", meaning, who benefits, who can effectively bend the narrative to fit their desired outcome, is very clear to me.

Martial law, as a way of controlling even the good, decent people in a country, is seen as very attractive by some leaders who know that their present and future programs will not be popular with the people who elected them.

And what better way to suppress domestic unrest at those policies than prevent the free and honest discussion of those policies ideas, or - horror of horrors - demonstrate peacefully against them?!?

These terroristic acts are just the excuse to invoke martial law; but the reason for the problem in the first place is the ham-fisted, pig-headed quality of American foreign policy, the authors of which never see a war they don't want to start in order to control resources to which they have no moral right.

Bill Clinton ‘Unaware’ Brother-In-Law on Board of Haitian Gold Mine that Landed Rare Permit

New reporting by the Washington Post finds a gold mine in Haiti. Or, at least, confirms previous reporting from Breitbart News about a gold mining contract in that troubled country.

In an expose about the controversial Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, the newspaper’s Kevin Sullivan and Rosalind S. Helderman write that:

Controversy surrounding the Clintons only deepened with the recent revelation, contained in an upcoming book by Peter Schweizer, that Tony Rodham — Hillary Clinton’s younger brother — serves on the advisory board of a U.S.-based company that in 2012 won one of Haiti’s first two gold-mining permits in 50 years. After objection from the Haitian senate, the permits have been placed on hold.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A coincidence, on the original issuing of those permits?!?

I think, NOT!!

“Two for the Price of One”: Democrats Nominate Clinton Crime Family for a Second Co-Presidency

Bill Clinton once bragged about electing him president meant getting “two for the price of one.”

Here we go again. Exposed electoral rigging along with unelected party insider super-delegates handed the Clinton crime family another chance for the nation’s highest office.

Will November electoral rigging assure it, letting both legally challenged Clintons lead America – perhaps into the abyss if occurs?

Sanders capped his sellout to everything he campaigned against, urging Hillary be nominated by acclamation. In disgust, over 500 of his delegates walked out.

He transformed himself into Hillary’s puppet, urging his followers to betray their principles – selling out to wealth and power like all the rest.

All-out activism against a corrupted system is crucial.

The alternative is a nation more unsafe and unfit to live in than ever, Wall Street and war-profiteers more greatly empowered, and the unthinkable risk of WW III.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A Hillary Presidency will guarantee more wars; the return of the draft, for both our young men and young women; more offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs; more collapsed infrastructure; and far more criminal corruption of the US government.

Mike is absolutely correct when he mentions that a Trump victory has to be a landslide to prevent this, because of voter nullification, through vote machine rigging; and Hillary's people are expert at this (Just look at how Sanders got creamed in California, when he actually won the California primary!)

So this election has to go all the way, in the most peaceful, and legal way possible, to insure a Trump victory.

IMF and China Accelerate Creation of New Global Reserve Currency

So after the G20 meeting on July 25, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China’s (PBOC) International Office Zhou Juan immediately countered the concern about a lack of market demand. He said an international development organization like the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank (AIIB) could issue SDR bonds in China as late as August, according to Chinese newspaper Caixin.

Zhu echoed both Ocampo and the IMF and said that “SDR-denominated bonds should be appealing to official investors at their preliminary stage because they can provide diversified investment products and reduce exchange rate and interest rate risks.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could well undermine the petrodollar for good; is it no wonder that the US government is threatening war against China in the South China Seas to prevent a rise in the use of this financial instrument, as well as the rise of the gold-backed yuan, which is not convertible to US dollars?!?

Erdogan Takes Control

I have considerable respect for those who believe that a military coup to overthrow an elected civilian government is always wrong but Erdogan is no innocent and if anyone is paying attention at all he or she would note that the Turkish president has done more damage to democracy in Turkey than anyone living. Recep Tayyip Erdogan is an autocrat who might even better be described as a megalomaniac driven to promote policies that are both self-serving and erratic that rely on incendiary populist appeals to maintain power. He heads an increasingly corrupt regime and has ruthlessly sacrificed his own people to his own ambition, effectively declaring war on the Kurdish minority living in Turkey and secretly dealing with and even supporting terrorists while also, ironically, opening the door to a new wave of terror within Turkey itself. Erdogan has personally embroiled his country in an incomprehensible and ultimately disastrous fashion in neighboring Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF NATO and the US government were collectively honest, now would be the time to re-assess their collective and individual relationship with Erdogan's Turkey.

Where the hell does a megalomaniacal, hubristically Stallinesque dictator, torturing his own people for confessions having people shunned and created "show trials", fit into the concept of free democracies mutually assisting each other in economy and defense?!?

The short, logical answer is, nowhere.

But unfortunately, because of the depth and breadth of military investment and deployment in Turkey, the US government and NATO have had their outreach to Erdogan bite them, collectively, in a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy, and they are stuck in a relationship they cannot very easily get out of.

Coups are something inside/outside forces have to get right, otherwise, there is hell to pay.

And IF Erdogan's accusations are true, the US and NATO have some 'splaining to do; of course, they will never acknowledge their complicity in such an activity.

I am deeply concerned about the lockdown at Incerlik (with 2700 NATO personnel, 1500 of whom are American), and the 51 nuclear bombs pre-positioned there.

To begin to get any semblance of normalcy back into the Turkish/NATO/US government relationship involves the extradition of the US Resident, Imam Gulen, who Erdogan accuses of having fomented the coup, and demands that Gulen to be sent back to Istanbul.

The US government cannot do this, because Gulen has intensive knowledge about certain US governmental spy agencies in Turkey.

In this case, I would imagine that the US Administration is contemplating some kind of extrajudicial assassination of Gulen, then return him to Turkey in a casket.

After all, he would have been returned, just as Erdogan demanded; just returned dead.

We would have to see where things went from there, but unfortunately, the US government doesn't appear to have many other options for getting out of this mess with Turkey.

Hillary Clinton: Class President of A Failed Generation

The baby boom generation which started with so much promise when it came of age in the 1960s has ended up a colossal failure. It has turned America into a bloody imperial hegemon aboard and a bankrupt Spy State at home where financialization and the 1% thrive, half the population lives off the state and real main street prosperity has virtually disappeared from the land.

Quite a deplorable legacy, that. And all the while Hillary has been our class president. God help the world if she becomes our nation’s President. She has betrayed all that was right about the baby boomers in the 1960s; and has embraced all the wrong they did during their subsequent years in power.

PM: Turkey ‘Heartbroken’ by US Handling of Gulen Extradition

Speaking today in an interview on his country’s requests for the US to extradite cleric Fethullah Gulen, Prime Minister Binali Yildrim claimed he was “heartbroken” by the US reaction to the request, saying he didn’t understand why the US didn’t immediately send Gulen on request.

Yildrim insisted that the evidence was “crystal clear” that Gulen was behind the coup, and said the longstanding US-Turkey alliance should trump “procedural matters” like having actual extradition hearings within the US about whether or not to send Gulen to Turkey.

Turkey reportedly filed some “evidence” along with their request to the US, though US officials have since insisted they want conclusive evidence of Gulen’s guilt before they are willing to extradite him. Turkish officials don’t appear to have been forthcoming, instead just warning bilateral relations are at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turkey holds all the cards on this one; they have locked down the NATO base at Incerlik, which holds 2700 NATO troops ( 1500 of which are Americans) and 51 nuclear bombs.

This situation is not going to resolve itself, and the US government understands that without this extradition, the situation at Incerlik will remain frozen.

But because they cannot extradite Gulen alive, they will have to find the means of "terminating him with extreme prejudice." He may get "suicided", or die in a one-car accident; assassinations engineered to not look like assassinations, are quite frequently done by the US government.

It appears to me that the only way Erdogan gets Gulen back is in an aluminum coffin, if at all.

If Russian Intelligence Did Hack the DNC, the NSA Would Know, Snowden Says

Glenn Greenwald told WNYC on Monday, while there may never be conclusive evidence that the Democratic National Committee was hacked by Russian intelligence operatives to extract the trove of embarrassing emails published by WikiLeaks, it would hardly be shocking if that was what happened.

“Governments do spy on each other and do try to influence events in other countries,” Glenn noted. “Certainly the U.S. government has a very long and successful history of doing exactly that.”

Even so, he added, given the ease with which we were misled into war in Iraq by false claims about weapons of mass destruction — and the long history of Russophobia in American politics — it is vital to cast a skeptical eye over whatever evidence is presented to support the claim, made by Hillary Clinton’s aide Robby Mook, that this is all part of a Russian plot to sabotage the Democrats and help Donald Trump win the election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin has absolutely no love of Clinton, due to her warmongering and lying; however, I seriously doubt that he would ever sign off on something so ham-fisted that it could be pointed back at Russian cyber-warfare.

HERE ARE THE NEW TACTICS POLICE ARE PREPARING TO ROLL OUT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Following the recent events in the United States, which have resulted in armed civilians taking on police officers—namely in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and most recently in Kansas City, Kansas — police forces across the country are set to adjust their strategies and tactics.
An interesting detail to note is that on July 11, 2016 — following the first deadly attacks on police officers that occurred in Dallas — Reuters reported police were set to rethink their tactics in nearly half of America’s 30 largest cities. They evidently didn’t act swiftly enough (a number of deadly attacks followed shortly after). It’s either that or the suggested police tactics were never going to address the root causes of the problem we are facing.

So what kind of changes can we expect to see?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out that Trump has been speaking about "illegal immigrants", which is a problem, rather than minorities per se.

But in saying that the Obama administration has done really nothing substantive to stop police brutality against all of our citizens, the author of this article is absolutely correct.

Jul 27 10:12

Obama puts FBI in charge of responding to cyber attacks

A presidential directive signed by President Obama Tuesday will put the FBI in charge of responding to all cyber threats and give the federal government a more active role in investigating, preventing and mitigating attempts to hack into U.S.-based computer networks.

Obama's homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, said the change was necessary because it's not always clear whether those responsible for a hacking incident are other countries, terrorists or criminals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given his debacle with the Clinton server issue, James Comey will NOT make this investigation fact-based in any way shape or form; it will be bent to the political will of the current administration, and to augment Hillary's chances to assume the presidency next year.

And if Russia is to be bashed and accused of something its operatives absolutely didn't do, so be it.

Never mind that the relationship between Russia and the US is on a hair-point trigger right now, with US sanctions against it still in place, again, for something it didn't do (allegedly "annexing" Crimea after the US-sponsored putsch in Ukraine).

The issues of Ukraine, Syria, and the positioning of NATO troops and weapons with which to encircle Russia, and potentially attack it, are issues where the American government needs to back away from in its hubristic, bellicose posturing, like an insolent teenager, and sit down to the negotiating table like an adult in the room with Russia, and resolve these issues in good-faith negotiations.

Of course, unfortunately, that will only happen when pigs fly; in the 20th and 21st century, the US government has always needed its "Emmanuel Goldstein" against which US citizens can unload their generally misdirected vitriol, when it is their own government which has been screwing things up both domestically, and internationally.

From the time of the cold war until now, that convenient public enemy has been Russia.

I think Trump is intelligent enough to understand that at this point in the 21st century, such enmity is pretty useless, on the cusp of a multi-polar world.

Spy Agency Consensus Grows That Russia Hacked D.N.C.

American intelligence agencies have told the White House they now have “high confidence” that the Russian government was behind the theft of emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee, according to federal officials who have been briefed on the evidence.

But intelligence officials have cautioned that they are uncertain whether the electronic break-in at the committee’s computer systems was intended as fairly routine cyberespionage — of the kind the United States also conducts around the world — or as part of an effort to manipulate the 2016 presidential election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, American spy agencies have "“high confidence” that the Russian government was behind the theft of emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee" with utterly no proof?!?

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

I am sorry, but cold hard reality indicates to me that one cannot have "high confidence" with absolutely zero proof, and that is where our "alphabet soup" spy agencies are with this allegation.

They have nothing, nada, ZIP on the facts of this case, and have demonstrated to the American people once again that nothing these people say can be trusted at all, ever.

It appears that this is the most convenient lie they could come up with, because the potential truth about how these documents became leaked is far more damning than claiming the "the Russians did it."

And now, as reported yesterday at the New York Times:

The assessment by the intelligence community of Russian involvement in the D.N.C. hacking, which largely echoes the findings of private cybersecurity firms that have examined the electronic fingerprints left by the intruders, leaves President Obama and his national security aides with a difficult diplomatic and political decision: whether to publicly accuse the government of President Vladimir V. Putin of engineering the hacking. Such a public accusation could result in a further deterioration of the already icy relationship between Washington and Moscow, at a moment when the administration is trying to reach an accord with Mr. Putin on a cease-fire in Syria and on other issues. It could also doom any effort to reach some kind of agreement about acceptable behavior in cyberspace, of the kind the United States has been discussing with China.

So President Obama, I have a logical question for you; what if your administration publicly accuses Russia of having done this, and it comes out that the leaks found themselves at wikileaks through an absolutely alternative way?!?

What will this do to any shred of credibility your administration has left?!? And what about any shred of credibility Clinton's campaign may have left?!?

Sir, I would strongly suggest that you and your advisors think long and hard about this possibility.

You have utterly no evidence of this accusation, nor have you evidence that "Guccifer 2" ever worked for Russia's G.R.U.

Without proof, this is simply a fabricated lie to make the possibility of Russia having done this an easier "sell" to the American people; however, your problem, sir, is that the American people are not "buying",particularly not after they were lied into an horrific war against Iraq, on the charge that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

GERMAN “OFFICIALS” CALL TO CHANGE CONSTITUTION AFTER MUNICH SHOOTING; MILITARY ON STREETS, GUN CONTROL

The bodies of the victims of Munich’s recent mass shooting barely cold, German “authorities” and politicians have wasted no time in calling for more police state measures and the further clamp down on access to gun ownership in Germany.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann is now pushing for going so far as to revise the German Constitution so that limits placed on using the military domestically can be removed, allowing the German military to be used inside Germany for “large-scale terrorist situations.”

The limits on Germany’s military were put in place after World War II and in response to Germany’s experience with the Nazi regime with all its excesses, totalitarianism, violence, and genocide.

Hermann stated that Germany is “an absolutely stable democracy” and, as such, Germans should be perfectly fine with having their military deployed on German streets.

“THIS IS MY SECOND ONE” — VIRGINIA COP CAUGHT BRAGGING ABOUT KILLING TWO UNARMED PEOPLE

A former Virginia police officer and U.S. Navy veteran, whose trial for murder begins this week, told a witness, “this is my second one,” after killing an unarmed 18-year-old black man in April 2015.

While unclear whether or not the jarring statement amounted to a boast, the camera on ex-Portsmouth Officer Stephen Rankin’s Taser recorded him saying this to a Walmart employee mere seconds after he fatally shot unarmed teen and alleged shoplifter William Chapman in the store’s parking lot in April 2015.

Rankin had, indeed, killed another unarmed man, Kirill Denyakin — under circumstances similarly and sufficiently questionable to earn three years’ administrative leave — just four years prior to the shooting for which he now stands accused of first-degree murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This shooting of unarmed people with impunity by the police in the US just has to stop!!

Henceforward, when anyone becomes a police officer, the contract they must sign with any city or county entity, should include language that if they shoot an unarmed person, and the family sues, the city or county will make them pay damages personally.

That just MAY put a damper on "shoot to kill" mentality here.

The second thing that has to be done is completely abandon Israeli training of American police; unfortunately, what these Israelis teach is precisely what the IDF does to the Palestinians, and frequently unarmed Palestinians are gunned down with absolute impunity.

Also, as reported at blacklistednews.com yesterday is the following, very sobering, article about police violence in the US:

If anyone needed a reminder that America has a police brutality problem, the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile provided it. Actual numbers on violent police encounters are difficult to come by, but this dearth of data is getting more attention. New research published in the British Medical Journal demonstrates the danger posed to citizens by the most routine police practice of a “legal stop.” Researchers analyzed 12.3 million police interventions from 2012 and found that approximately 55,400 people were injured or killed by cops during legal stop and search incidents in one year. Of this number, about 1,000 were killed, with vast majority dying from gunshot wounds. The remaining 54,400 were hospitalized with serious injuries, mostly from blunt objects. “ON AVERAGE, AN ESTIMATED 1 IN 291 STOPS/ARRESTS RESULTED IN HOSPITAL-TREATED INJURY OR DEATH OF A SUSPECT OR BYSTANDER.” Granted, some of these injuries or deaths were justified to protect officers or innocent people from actual violent people, but even the authors of the study conclude that these numbers reflect an “excess exposure” of people to police violence. In an interview with Vocativ, lead author Ted Miller, of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, pointed out how many shooting deaths in the U.S. come from a police gun. “In one in 11 cases where someone died because someone else intentionally shot them, a police officer pulled the trigger,” said Miller.

These numbers speak for themselves, and tell a very unsettling story regarding American police violence.

COUPS INSIDE NATO: A DISTURBING HISTORY

Emphasizing the high political stakes for the alliance, India’s former Ambassador to Turkey M. K. Bhadrakumar recently declared that the “Turkish allegation has no precedent in NATO’s 67-year old history – of one member plotting regime change in another member country through violent means.”

But the assumption that NATO has always before respected peaceful political change within its ranks is false. The historical record — which may fuel Turkish paranoia — suggests that anti-communist solidarity within the alliance has too often taken precedence over the fine democratic sentiments endorsed in NATO’s founding document.

Before this summer’s botched attempt, for example, Turkey previously experienced military coups in 1960, 1971, 1980 and 1997. Comforted by the staunch anti-communism of its military, U.S. officials rarely batted an eye when Turkish officers took charge. In some cases, Washington may have had foreknowledge of the plots.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the US government, attempted, and sometimes successful, regime change is as American as apple pie.

LOL! Hillary Lied To Bernie Supporters About THIS Huge Issue – Trump Was RIGHT!

One of the biggest reasons Bernie Sanders supporters were not on board with Hillary Clinton being the Democrat nominee was because of her support for the controversial trade agreement known as TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership).

Sanders endorses War Criminal Clinton for US President; rejects opportunity for true leadership with ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ OBVIOUS facts of Clinton election fraud, e-mail felonies, Wars of Aggression to embrace, bond, and join the criminals

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“In my view, it’s easy to ‘boo’ but it’s harder to look your kids in the face living under a Donald Trump presidency!” ~ Bernie Sanders, July 26, 2016 speech at DNC

Bernie Sanders lied to the American public and world-wide victims of US empire by providing a false choice between Left and Right arms of one criminal political body of .01% oligarchs. The only rational, responsible, and legal response for Americans is to demand arrests of such oligarchs rather than vote them into power for ongoing Wars of Aggression and related crimes of empire. This article will explain, document, and prove these claims with Emperor’s New Clothes ease to point to obvious and objective facts anyone can see who cares to look.

Presidential candidate Trump's endorsement of War Crimes is equal reason to arrest him for incitement to murder (war-murder and/or genocide). One sentence of summary from detailed documentation:

Trump is already leading in the polls and the second batch of Wikileaks is yet to be released. Tonight, the Democratic Party has given the presidency to Trump. The DNC Machine went against its members and they have thus signed their death sentence. The Democratic Party will never be the same again.

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Three related topics to academics that contribute to public education being bullshit:

So-called “food” served in most public schools is repulsive and not anything a rational and educated person would ever want to eat.
Most school campuses suffer from “deferred maintenance” that causes decrepit conditions that communicate profound problems to our children.
The entirety of academics, food, and facilities all produce uninspired children; appropriate to becoming work animals.

THE SECRET DOCUMENTS THAT DETAIL HOW PATIENTS’ PRIVACY IS BREACHED

When the federal government takes the rare step of fining medical providers for violating the privacy and security of patients’ medical information, it issues a press release andposts details on the web.

But thousands of times a year, the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services resolves complaints about possible violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act quietly, outside public view. It sends letters reminding providers of their legal obligations, advising them on how to fix purported problems, and, sometimes, prodding them to make voluntary changes.

Case closed.

CITIZENS ARRESTED BEFORE THEY COMMIT FUTURE CRIMES RECEIVE ‘ENHANCED PROSECUTION’

Nearly 1,500 people were arrested earlier this year, because they were put on a police ‘Strategic Subject List‘ (SSL). The SSL was formerly called the ‘Heat List‘ which started in 2013. (SSL is just another term for Predictive Policing)

According to CBS Chicago police are using an algorithm to predict who’ll commit a crime in the future!

The SSL uses an algorithm to try to predict who is most likely to be involved in a shooting – either as the shooter or victim – by analyzing data such as gang affiliations, criminal records, past shootings, and previous contact with police.

The list includes about 1,500 people, who police have said are responsible for the majority of gun violence in Chicago.

Police are arresting people before they commit a crime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The program REEKS of an Orwellian "Minority Report" odor.

And unfortunately, it very clearly appears that the only thing Orwell got wrong on his dystopian masterpiece, "1984", was the precise date when this would start happening.

And this program cannot possibly be working, as Chicago still has one of the highest incidences of gun violence in the country; I wonder how the metric for "success" has been engineered to make this look as though this is working?!?

FACEBOOK ADMITS IT BLOCKED LINKS TO DNC EMAIL LEAKS AFTER CENSORSHIP ACCUSATIONS

Facebook has confirmed without reason that it temporarily blocked links to the WikiLeaks files of leaked internal Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails. The social media giant came under fire from followers, with WikiLeaks accusing it of “censorship.”

A number of people encountered problems when they tried to post links to the WikiLeaks files - which exposed the DNC's bias against Bernie Sanders - on Facebook on Saturday. Error messages said the links had been "detected to be unsafe" by Facebook's security system, and asked users “to remove links to continue.”

After Twitter user @SwiftOnSecurity tweeted that “Facebook has an automated system for detecting spam/malicious links, that sometimes have false positives," Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos replied by saying “it’s been fixed."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because of its connections to the Democratic Party machine, we can expect Facebook to do this each and every time there is something nasty revealed about any of its preferred politicians.

As reported on 9 May of this year at breitbart.com:

Facebook’s news section operates like a traditional newsroom, reflecting the biases of its workers and the institutional imperatives of the corporation. Imposing human editorial values onto the lists of topics an algorithm spits out is by no means a bad thing—but it is in stark contrast to the company’s claims that the trending module simply lists “topics that have recently become popular on Facebook.” In other words, Facebook’s role in the dissemination of news is beginning to resemble that of the Old Media gatekeepers the company initially claimed to be “disrupting.” Like MSNBC or CNN, Facebook is going to feed its users information from the top down, mediated by its employees’ own political prejudices — just as I predicted it would last month. In addition to suppressing stories, Gizmodo’s sources also confirmed that they were also directed to “inject” certain stories into the trending list even if they weren’t popular enough to warrant inclusion. Unsurprisingly, these included stories about Black Lives Matter, a movement that Mark Zuckerberg has personally defended from internal critics at the company.

They only "corrected" their not allowing links to the Wikileaks documents after an angry readership responded to the blackout of these links.

OBAMA BACKS OFF PLAN TO DEMILITARIZE POLICE AFTER MEETING WITH LOBBYISTS

Police militarization has been a hot button issue for quite some time, but it wasn’t until last year’s Ferguson riots — which erupted after a jury declined to bring charges against Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown — that President Barack Obama decided to take action. In May of 2015, the Obama administration decided to ban the sale of certain kinds of military equipment to police departments, leaving local law enforcement agents without access to items such as bayonets, armored vehicles, camouflage uniforms, large-caliber weapons and ammunition, and grenade launchers. Facing harsh criticism from police, Obama defended his position, claiming, “We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like they’re an occupying force.” Instead, Obama added, we should be working to make police “a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them.”

These Feelings Won't Go Away

***
Despite all of the buzz about stocks breaking out to new all-time highs, the reality remains that stocks have effectively been stuck in a sideways trading channel for nearly two years. Sure, they have soared over the past week, but they are still only +3% above where they were in late 2014. Stocks as measured by the S&P 500 Index (NYSEARCA:SPY) have soared since 'Brexit' in late June, but they also soared even more impressively from their October 2014, September 2015 and February 2016 lows. Conversely, they also plunged notably from their September 2014, May 2015 and November 2015 highs. In short, it has been a wild ride to squeeze out three percentage points in price return over the past couple of years.

One of the forces that has accompanied these wild market swings has been similarly reactive words from the U.S. Federal Reserve>>>

Florida Democrat cites safety concerns in effort to censor anti-Hillary film

As the Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday amid new scandals related to the release of thousands of leaked emails, the timing was perfect for conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza. His latest documentary, “Hillary’s America,” was recently released and has attracted significant interest from voters hoping to learn more about the former first lady’s sordid past.

If one Democratic state committeeman has his way, though, it might be impossible for some locals to catch this film at their neighborhood cinema. Joseph Flynn has sent a request to a number of theaters operating in Sumter County, Fla., to remove D’Souza’s film from the lineup. He cited an ostensible concern for the safety of area Democrats as his motive.

“I have received a significant number of calls from people in Sumter County who viewed the trailer of this movie and voiced concern the movie will incite additional threats of violence against them and their property for being Democrats.”

Why the US Government Refuses to Turn on Monsanto

Many have pondered how Monsanto managed to rise to such a powerful position with respect to its influence over the U.S. government, and I think journalist Abby Martin may have pin-pointed the source of this obnoxious loyalty in her recent video report, "America's Monster" (below).

In it, she details Monsanto's history as an American "war horse," which began with its involvement in the Manhattan Project and the creation of the atomic bomb. Monsanto's contributions to the U.S. war machine continued during the Vietnam War, when the company became a leading producer of Agent Orange.

These war contributions appear to have cemented a long-lasting and loyal relationship between the U.S. government and Monsanto that continues to this day, to the detriment of the American people.

The Democratic National Committee chair, Florida Congressmember Debbie Wasserman Schultz, resigned Sunday following WikiLeaks' release of nearly 20,000 emails revealing how the Democratic Party favored Hillary Clinton and worked behind the scenes to discredit and her rival, Senator Bernie Sanders. When Sanders speaks tonight at the Democratic convention, he is expected to praise the Democrats for agreeing to what he describes as the most progressive platform in Democratic Party history. But he lost a major battle with the platform when the Democratic National Committee defeated an amendment brought by his delegates to abolish superdelegates. We speak with Zaid Jilani of The Intercept, who reported on how the "DNC Votes to Keep Superdelegates, But Sets Some Conditions."

Sandy Hook will be used for Gun Control at 2016 Democratic National Convention

We already know the MSM are willing accomplices of the Left. The latest example is a Democratic National Committee (DNC) email on an agreement with a Politico reporter to preview his story on Hillary Clinton’s campaign before he sent it to his editors. (See “Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary“)

Now all signs are pointing to gun control being a center piece in Hillary Clinton’s upcoming acceptance speech as her party’s presidential nominee. Gun Control is her rebuttal to Donald Trump’s call to law and order.

The signs point to the reinvocation of the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting by the media and by the Democratic National Convention that begins today. The supposed shooting deaths of 20 little children will be used to tug on Americans’ heartstrings for gun control.

SIGN OF THE TIMES: RIOT CONTROL GEAR SALES ARE SOARING GLOBALLY

If you pay attention to the news at all, it probably seems like the world has been fraying at the edges lately. In South America, Brazil’s economy is crumbling and Venezuela is on the verge of collapse. In the United States, riots are expectedat political conventions. In Europe, the Brexit vote is threatening to tear apart the EU and the UK. And all over the world, people are becoming sick and tired of the status quo. In nearly every single country, people are losing their faith in major institutions and, in increasing numbers, they are losing their trust in the financial and political elitists who run those institutions.

CHICAGO POLICE COST TAXPAYERS $18.6 MILLION IN POLICE BRUTALITY LAWSUITS SO FAR THIS YEAR

One year after the city of Chicago fired a police review investigator for finding several police shootings unjustified, the city continues to dish out millions of dollars in police brutality settlements, including $18.6 million so far this year. The most recent settlements were approved last week; three cases totaling $4.72 million, including the last of 25 lawsuits stemming for a rogue cop named Jerome Finnigan. But Finnigan, who is now serving time in prison, is hardly the only dirty cop responsible for the slew of lawsuits that have cost Chicago taxpayers more than $500 million over the past decade.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

The Fed Has Some Explaining to Do

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is desperation on the cusp of madness.

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

Erdogan Orders 1,000 Schools Closed as Purge Grows

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

Also from antiwar.com:

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

It feels like that is what is happening right now in Germany.

And given Germany's history, were I a German citizen, or visitor, NO, I WOULD NOT BE PERFECTLY COMFORTABLE WITH GERMAN "MILITARY DEPLOYED ON THE STREETS".

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

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

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

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

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

"BILLIONAIRES FOR BILLARY": MIKE BLOOMBERG WILL ENDORSE HILLARY

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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