State Department Appears to Edit Briefing Video to Remove Admission of Falsehood

Nuland’s answer contradicts what we now know to be true. In a profile with The New York Times, national security advisor Ben Rhodes admitted that the White House secretly sought out nuclear talks much earlier than they told the public, as far back as 2011.

In 2013, after initial reports emerged that the Iran deal was negotiated earlier than the White House let on, Rosen confronted Nuland’s successor Jen Psaki. But when Rosen went back to pull the video of that confrontation for a Fox News segment years later, he noticed that his questions had been edited out.

US columnist resigns over “gag order” from pro-Israel mogul Sheldon Adelson

John L. Smith, long the most widely read columnist at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, has resigned over what he termed a “gag order” placed on him by the newspaper’s new owner, the pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Smith’s resignation on 26 April came in the same week that the think tank Freedom House downgraded Israel’s press freedom ranking because of Adelson’s influence on its media.

Conservatives lost more council seats than Labour in UK local elections

Despite the huge attention paid to the performance of Jeremy Corbyn’s party, the Conservatives actually suffered a net loss of more than twice as many council seats as Labour, the final local election results have revealed.

With all but one of 124 contested councils having finally declared their results, it can be revealed that the Tories are down 47 seats compared to 18 for Labour.

This conflicts with pre-election analysis that had predicted Labour might lose as many as 150 council seats.

Donald Trump supporters are better educated than the average American...

According to information collected from exit polls and the Census Bureau, the average household income of a Trump supporter is $72,000 (approx £50,000) which is over £10,000 more than the US national average.

It's well documented that Republicans tend to be more wealthy than their Democrat counterparts, so perhaps that shouldn't be so much of a surprise.

Slightly more shocking however, is that statistician Nate Silver found that 44 per cent of Trump voters have university degrees, compared to the US national average of 29 per cent.

He also claimed that immigration was driving a rise in house prices and that young people lost out in particular.

Mr Duncan Smith argued that that EU had benefited the wealthy because it had created “cheap nannies, baristas and labourers”.

Leaked Memo: Jordan’s King Reveals UK SAS Forces On The Ground In Syria, Israel Supports Nusra

According to a leaked memo obtained by the Guardian in late March, 2016 King Abdullah of Jordan apparently briefed US officials on the fact that Jordanian Special Forces would be deployed to Libya to work alongside the British SAS. In that same briefing, Abdullah also allegedly stated that British SAS had been active in Libya since early 2016...

Abdullah also allegedly pointed out that the British had been instrumental in setting up a “mechanized battalion” in Southern Syria made up of “local tribal fighters” (aka terrorists) and lead by a “local commander” for the purposes of fighting against the Syrian government forces...

Trump: US Will Never Default On Debt

US will never default on debt 'because you print the money' – Trump

In an attempt to clarify his stance regarding potential default on national debt payments, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that, in the US, "you never have to default because you print the money."

Responding to questions over recent comments indicating that as president, he would renegotiate US national debt rather than pay creditors in full — which could spur a global financial shock — Trump said the notion that he would default on national debt is "crazy."

"People said I want to go and buy debt and default on debt, and I mean, these people are crazy. This is the United States government," Trump told CNN on Monday "First of all, you never have to default because you print the money, I hate to tell you, OK?"

Under California’s delegate rules, candidates select their own delegate slates, and Trump put McCarthy in to represent his Central Valley congressional district.

Peter Thiel, the billionaire tech venture capitalist who was an early investor in Facebook and a past backer of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, signed up as a Trump delegate in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district.

David Horowitz, a conservative activist, and Richard Grenell, a former spokesman for past U.S. ambassadors to the United States, also are slated to be Trump delegates.

Why Anti-Authoritarians are Diagnosed as Mentally Ill

In my career as a psychologist, I have talked with hundreds of people previously diagnosed by other professionals with oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, anxiety disorder and other psychiatric illnesses, and I am struck by (1) how many of those diagnosed are essentially anti-authoritarians, and (2) how those professionals who have diagnosed them are not.

Anti-authoritarians question whether an authority is a legitimate one before taking that authority seriously. Evaluating the legitimacy of authorities includes assessing whether or not authorities actually know what they are talking about, are honest, and care about those people who are respecting their authority. And when anti-authoritarians assess an authority to be illegitimate, they challenge and resist that authority—sometimes aggressively and sometimes passive-aggressively, sometimes wisely and sometimes not.

“The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends,” she said. “They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world – hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked.”

Waldir Maranhao, the interim speaker of the lower house, wrote in an order seen by AFP that a new vote should take place on whether to impeach Rousseff.

The surprise move came just as the Senate was preparing to vote this week on whether to suspend Rousseff from office while an impeachment trial gets underway.

ICE Agent Commits Suicide in NYC; Leaves Note Revealing Gov't Plans to Round-up & DISARM Americans During Economic & Bank Collapse

After writing a lengthy suicide note exposing terrifying plans the government has for American citizens, a US Customs Agent walked onto a pier in NYC and blew his brains out.

Sources inside the New York City Police Department have revealed to SuperStation95, the contents of a suicide note found on the body and they are utterly frightening.

The note, which says it was written over the course of a full week in advance, outlines why the officer chose to shoot himself:

"The America I grew up in, and cherished, has been murdered by its own federal government. Our Constitution has become meaningless and our laws politicized so badly, they are no longer enforced except for political purposes" the note said. "Our elected officials are, to a person, utterly corrupt and completely devoid of any love or respect for the country which pays them. To them, everything is about getting and keeping power, and making illicit money from backroom deals."

Though other fictional dystopias could similarly elicit comparisons to the dark turn taken by American empire, aspects of 1984’s creepy authoritarian nightmare ring all-too-true.

And Big Brother-like surveillance — though undoubtedly relevant — imparts only the most obvious, and therefore least pertinent, connection on the list...

A Need To Clear Up Clinton Questions

“Some people think they can lie and get away with it,” said former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld with feigned outrage. And, of course, he has never been held accountable for his lies, proving his dictum true.

The question today is: Will former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Teflon coat be as impermeable to deep scratches as Rumsfeld’s has proven to be?

Thanks to TSA, Almost 7,000 Passengers Missed Their Flights in Just One Week on Just One Airline

And in other news, the TSA continues to suck.

It isn’t even summer yet, and major problems with longer and longer TSA screening times are happening at major airports across the nation, including Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and San Jose just to name a few. During Spring Break (March 14-20) this year alone, an estimated 6,800 airline passengers missed their flights due to TSA screening delays on American Airlines — just American Airlines.

Cameron's 'Project Fear' Goes Full M.A.D. - Vote No To Brexit Or Face World War 3

Just as the government did in the lead up to The Scottish Referendum in 2014, it appears David Cameron is already escalating the so-called Project Fear. In a stunning statement of sheer fearmongery, clearly reflecting the establishment's panic at the rise of Brexit votes in the polls, The Telegraph reports UK PM David Cameron warned that Britain will pay a high cost if "we turn our back" on the EU, invoking Sir Winston Churchill and highlighting the battles of Trafalgar, Blenheim, Waterloo and the two World Wars as evidence that Britain cannot pretend to be "immune from the consequences."

As The Daily Mirror reports, David Cameron has pleaded for Britain to stay in the EU to help prevent the Continent being ripped apart by another conflict.

Undeniable evidence from numerous studies proves that fluoride causes cancer

The California Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) recently released a document called Evidence on the Carcinogenicity of Fluoride and Its Salts that highlights the many health hazards caused by the consumption of fluoride. And the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) recently submitted a compilation of its own to OEHHA, which is soon to make a final decision concerning fluoride's toxicity, providing additional evidence that fluoride causes cancer.

FAN has been working for many years to raise awareness about the toxicity of fluoride, with the eventual goal of getting it removed from public water supplies. And its most recent efforts involving OEHHA could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, so to speak, as it has the potential to unleash the truth about fluoride on a massive scale, and spark a revolt against its use.

Why Obama Prioritizes Ousting Assad over Defeating Syria’s Jihadists

That report goes on to document, essentially, that US President Barack Obama is continuing his efforts to replace the the only secular, non-sectarian government in the Middle East, that of the Ba’athist Party, which has always been the only non-religious political party in the Arab world – everything else in Arabia has been fundamentalist-Sunni, to at least some extent. (Think of it: after 9/11, the US government aiding al-Qaeda! The US government is more against Russia than it’s against jihadists – though Russia never invaded the US, and communism is gone!)

Obama overthrew the Russia-friendly government of Ukraine and replaced it with an anti-Russian government; he also led the NATO bombing campaign that overthrew the Russia-friendly leader of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi; and he has since been trying to do the same thing in Syria, to Assad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does Obama's determination to win Syria through arming jihadists at all costs include a direct military confrontation with Russia?!?

This seems to be where he is headed.

But why, in an election year?!?

There are two potential schools of thought here.

One is that internal White House polls suggest that should Trump be the Republican nominee, he will wipe the floor with Clinton, come the general election. Therefore, the current administration wants to give him the worst possible scenarios (both economic and geopolitical, as in starting a war with Russia) with which he will have to contend.

The second is that many very reasonable economic forecasters have been stating that the current economic situation is headed for a massive crash; Obama may feel that getting out ahead of the economic collapse curve by starting a war will distract Americans from the economic misery in which far too many find themselves, courtesy of "Obamanomics"

In either scenario, the American people lose; however, any real care for the American people has never been part of Obama's world view.

CNN Labels Gary Johnson The ‘GOP’s Trump Alternative’

It’s finally happened. The media has gotten something right! They’re no longer ignoring third party candidates and have started to give them the respect they deserve. Instead of assuming that voting for a third party is a spoiler they’re including candidates in their coverage as legitimate alternatives to Trump and Clinton. During his most recent appearance on CNN, Gary Johnson was labeled the ‘GOP’s Trump Alternative’. Although there might have been a question mark at the end it’s still putting the thought into the minds of voters that they do have another choice. Being legitimized in this way is a major step forward for the Libertarian Party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CNN is hardly legitimizing the Libertarian Party, but using them to try to siphon votes away from Trump. Note that CNN did not say Gary was the alternative to Hillary, or even the whole establishment. CNN intentionally set the Libertarians against Trump.

Obama: TTIP Necessary So As to Protect Megabanks From Prosecution

On May 7th, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or German Economic News, headlined, “USA planen mit TTIP Frontal-Angriff auf Gerichte in Europa” or “U.S. Plans Frontal Attack on Europe’s Courts via TTIP,” and reported that, “America’s urgency to sign TTIP with Europe has solid reason: Megabanks must protect themselves from claims by European investors who allege that they were cheated during the debt crisis. … The U.S. Ambassador to Italy has now let the cat out of the bag on this — probably unintentionally.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the real reason President Obama has his knickers in a twist about the TTIP getting signed quickly is to protect megabanks from cheated customers!!

If you want to know by whom politicians are owned, look for the national and international corporations which are protected by legislation for which they are shilling.

For example, in the Homeland Security Act, pharmaceutical manufacturers were "held harmless and indemnified" for any harm their vaccines could cause; with Obama, it is the TTIP, which he has championed, which dissolves all national sovereignty; puts corporations in charge of all laws; and protects megabanks from lawsuits by cheated customers!!

I know that I have become disgusted and cynical about the political process in this country, but darn it, sometimes I just can't keep up!!

BEX ALERT - Search the Panama Papers database

They hoped to keep their business private, but some of the world's richest citizens are instead having their finances opened to prying eyes this afternoon.

Confidential details of more than 200,000 offshore accounts in the Panama Papers — including the names of at least 625 Canadians — are being revealed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in the hope that public scrutiny of the material will generate hundreds of tips about possible corruption and tax dodging.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A reader pointed out that even though Putin's name is not in the Panama papers, the CBC cannot resist using his picture to imply guilt without proof.

Baghdad on Military Lockdown over Fear of Protests

Security forces erected heavy concrete blast walls and strung barbed wire across two strategic bridges in the capital of Baghdad Friday as heavily armed troops deployed across the city. The security lockdown was meant to prevent a repeat of the events last Saturday, when thousands of demonstrators stormed the Green Zone, the walled-off seat of the Iraqi government.

On April 30, demonstrators denouncing the Iraqi government’s corruption, failure to provide basic services and inability to prevent terrorist bombings pulled down the massive blast walls surrounding the Green Zone, a high-security enclave created by the US occupation authorities after the 2003 invasion of Iraq. They occupied the parliament, breaking up furniture and sending lawmakers fleeing for their lives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to remind both DC and Baghdad that these barriers will not hold back the people of Iraq indefinitely, and that US forces may well find themselves attempting to suppress what may become an overwhelming, popular revolution against the corrupt Iraqi government.

Unfortunately for that potential attempt at suppressing a popular revolution; the US military may well not be successful, if Al Sadr has the backing of Iran, the Mahdi Army, and the Iraqi people.

Israel lobbies U.S. to soften tone of Quartet report on settlements

Israel is working to soften the tone of an upcoming report by the United States and the rest of the members of the Middle East Quartet of negotiators – Russia, the United Nations and the European Union. Israel is mainly concerned that the United States will take a harsher position against the settlements.

The report, to be issued in the last week of May, is expected to harshly criticize Israel over construction of settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to senior officials in Jerusalem. Among other things, Israel is working to prevent the report from mentioning future possible steps by the UN Security Council on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.

At a meeting in Munich in February, the members of the Quartet announced that they would release a report in a few months on the diplomatic freeze between Israel and the Palestinians. For the first time, the statement included the possibility of cooperation between the Quartet and the UN Security Council.

US Ambassador to Hungary: Overthrow Assad, Let in Refugees, and Fight Russia… or Else!

If anyone wants a short course on what’s wrong with US diplomacy look no further than US Ambassador to Hungary Coleen Bell’s speech Friday to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. In typical diplo-speak there was plenty of flowery language about shared values, fish swimming together in the same water (?), sappy poetics like “together, out of that winter, we would force the spring,” and talk of together being “part of the world’s greatest military and political alliance.”

But make no mistake: Inside Ambassador Bell’s velvet glove is an iron fist, poised to strike should Washington’s annoyingly independent-minded Fidesz-led government step out of line on the big issues. And by “big” issues it should be understood that the US means the issues it considers in the interests of its own foreign policy, not those in Hungary’s interest.

Message to Hungary: do as we say or you will be sorry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love it; this gal was a TV soap producer who "earned" her ambassadorship not by her education, previous employment, research, or knowledge about Hungary, but because she was a top Obama fundraiser!

If I were a US State Department official who had done the work, worked my way up the ranks, had a clue about international relations, and saw this woman get this job with other qualifications than to have been a top Obama fund raiser who could lie for her country with impunity, I would resign in abject disgust.

For the last couple of administrations, both Democratic and Republican, real qualifications for such a job mean absolutely nothing.
