Reasons to Doubt the Official Osama Raid Story — Five Years Later

The basic story, which changed repeatedly in the early hours and days following the raid, finally settled into a few bare bones. And that is all the public remembers:

Relying on uncertain intelligence, President Obama made the risky decision to mount a raid into Pakistan without the consent or knowledge of the authorities there. Navy SEALs swooped in, killed bin Laden, and got out safely, after which bin Laden’s body was cleaned in accordance with Islamic law before being dumped in the Arabian Sea.

Yet, if you actually look at what we’ve been told, you will find that it doesn’t make a lot of sense. And if it doesn’t make a lot of sense, we have two choices: 1) Contort the particulars until it kind of, sort of, seems to make sense; or 2) say that there may be something entirely different going on.

F-35s failed 'scramble test' because of buggy software

At Mountain View in Utah, the US Air Force decided too take the six F-35As out for a spin in a simulated scramble, but the results were disappointing:

“The Air Force attempted two alert launch procedures during the Mountain Home deployment, where multiple F-35A aircraft were preflighted and prepared for a rapid launch,” wrote Gilmore, “but only one of the six aircraft was able to complete the alert launch sequence and successfully takeoff”.

He continues: “Problems during start-up that required system or aircraft shut-downs and restarts – a symptom of immature systems and software – prevented the other alert launches from being completed”.

Donald Trump is leading Ted Cruz by a whopping 34 percentage points — 54%-20% — among likely Republican voters in California, a SurveyUSA poll for KUSA found.

That’s a significant gain for the Republican frontrunner, whose lead was only 8 percentage points in the last SurveyUSA poll a month ago. And it’s a significant loss for Cruz. The two were 40%-32% last month.

California, which holds its primary June 7, is the most delegate-rich state on the Republican primary calendar with 172 at stake for GOP hopefuls.

Donald Trump voiced his opinion on Monday about an incident that gained widespread attention on social media: Carly Fiorina falling off the stage at a Ted Cruz event.

"By the way, she fell off the stage," Trump said during a rally in Carmel, Indiana. "Did anybody see that? And Cruz didn't do anything. Even I would've helped her, OK?"

"Wow, that's really cruel," he continued. "She just went down. She went down a long way. And she went down right in front of him and he just kept talking. That was a weird deal."

FLASHBACK - Bush-Nazi Dealings Continued Until 1951Federal Documents

Although the additional seizures under the Trading with the Enemy Act did not take place until after the war, documents from The National Archives and Library of Congress confirm that Bush and his partners continued their Nazi dealings unabated. These activities included a financial relationship with the German city of Hanover and several industrial concerns. They went undetected by investigators until after World War Two.

At the same time Bush and the Harrimans were profiting from their Nazi partnerships, W. Averell Harriman was serving as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's personal emissary to the United Kingdom during the toughest years of the war. On October 28, 1942, the same day two key Bush-Harriman-run businesses were being seized by the U.S. government, Harriman was meeting in London with South African Field Marshall Smuts to discuss the war effort.

James Medina, 40, of Hollywood, Florida was arrested on Friday as a result of an undercover operation after he tried to use an explosive that law enforcement had made inoperable.

NATO Deploys 4000 Troops To Russian Border As EUCOM Chief Urges "Return To War-Planning"

With anti-establishmentarians on the rise in the US & Europe, it appears the neocons and their NATO proxy aren't wasting any time and are stepping up not just the words, but their deeds, against a so-called "resurgent Russia." NATO's European Command (EUCOM) "needs to change," blasts General Philip Breedlove, urging the military to get back to the business of war planning, a skill lost during the post-Cold War era saying his objective is to send a signal of deterrence to Russia. That signal was heard loud and clear as NATO is deploying an additional four battalions of 4,000 troops to the Russian border in Poland and the three Baltic States, according to a report citing US Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work.

Exposing the family that has been funding one of the largest anti-Trump Ads

As reported by the AP via yahoo: New campaign-finance reports show that Marlene Ricketts, the wife of billionaire T.D. Ameritrade founder J. Joe Ricketts, contributed $3 million to Our Principles PAC, a super PAC that blistered Trump with negative ads, voter guides and mailers ahead of the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries. Katie Packer, who helped manage Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign, runs the group.

The Ricketts family backed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's short-lived presidential bid. Marlene Ricketts, however, also spread smaller amounts to other contenders, giving $10,000 each last year to super PACs that backed Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Colorado Supreme Court Rules State Law Trumps Local Bans On Fracking

State's high court calls Longmont, Fort Collins measures on fracking "invalid and unenforceable"

Colorado's Supreme Court ruled against Front Range cities' push to limit oil and gas development near people Monday, saying state power to regulate the industry trumps local measures, which the court deemed "invalid and unenforceable."

The court overturned Fort Collins' five-year moratorium on fracking within the city limits. Justices concluded it "operationally conflicts" with state law and therefore, under well-established principles, must be pre-empted by the state. It also rejected Longmont's 2012 ban on fracking because it "materially impedes" use of state power.

Harvard Mumps Outbreak: All of the Infected Were Vaccinated

Perhaps this is why this story hasn't been big news... there's no Big Pharma propaganda value.

One of the most popular myths among supporters for mass vaccinations, is the idea of herd immunity. If only everyone was thoroughly vaccinated, then collectively we’d all be safer. Any disease outbreak would be quickly stifled, since there would be so few people who it could spread to. Of course, vaccines only give herd immunity when they actually work, which isn’t always the case.

It’s certainly not the case at the prestigious Harvard University, where over the past two months 40 students have contracted mumps. The school is scrambling to isolate the outbreak and has promoted prevention strategies among the student body as final exams approach.

Denmark extended temporary controls at its border with Germany on Monday, imposed to help control an influx of migrants, as the European Commission confirmed it would shortly authorise more such extensions within the passport-free Schengen zone.

Seven members of the Schengen zone, including Germany and Denmark, have introduced temporary border controls after more than one million migrants entered the European Union last year, mostly via Greece.

The European Commission, struggling to prevent the collapse of the Schengen accord, is expected this month to allow EU member states to retain the emergency border checks, which are due to expire in May, for a while longer.

New Direction For Resolving The Middle East Crisis

One problem in resolving the Middle East Crisis is that the pro-Israel contingent follows the Trump philosophy — bludgeon the opponent with made up stories, deceit and invectives. Talk with those who favor Israel and find the most rabid of them shout, scream and prevent rebuttals. If their ugly behavior does not silence critics, they resort to the ultra-low technique of labeling their antagonist as an anti-Semite. Use of anti-Semitism to silence opponents and constant reference to the World War II holocaust to promote Israel are essentials to Israel’s strategy of confuse and conquer.

FLASHBACK - Link Between GMO Crops And Morgellons?

Since the Clinton administration made biotechnology "a strategic priority for U.S. government backing" (1), giant transnational agri- business concerns have aggressively taken over the global food chain by flooding it with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) without regard for the consequences to the earth or its inhabitants. This takeover not only has the potential for global economic devastation, but threatens the earth's population with far-reaching health concerns as well. One health concern that seems to coincide with the GMO revolution is Morgellons disease. What if the advent of Morgellons disease has something to do with the ingestion of GMO foods?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One reason to be concerned is that the strange fibers growing out of the bodies of Morgellon's patients have been found to contain plant DNA! And the distribution of Morgellon's patients coincides with experimental GMO fields!

A “mock up” may be defined as follows: a “full sized scale model used for demonstration, study or testing.”

“Marco wants Donald to lose. If he thought his endorsement would help in California or in Indiana, which it won’t, then he would probably do it,” the source said. “But what Marco isn’t going to do is just endorse Ted, watch Trump win anyway and then, in four years, watch Cruz use Marco’s endorsement against him if they both run for president again,” the source said.
***
“A lot of our donors haven’t done much for Cruz because they don’t really see him winning anyway,” another Rubio insider said. "Many of them don’t really like him. And they think like, with Marco’s endorsement, it really won’t do much. And some of them have told him that Cruz would just use the endorsement as a cudgel against him. There’s no gain.”

Germany to Send Bundeswehr Troops to the Russian Border?

“Chancellor Angela Merkel is committing an irresponsible provocation, when, 75 years after the attack on the Soviet Union, she is sending the Bundeswehr to the Russian border,” said Sahra Wagenknecht, Chairman of DIE LINKE.

Wagenknecht further: “The federal government is playing with fire if they blindly support NATO’s aggressive game. A permanent presence of NATO combat troops on the Russian border is contrary to the existing agreements with Russia.

EU eastward expansion and the NATO troop parades are poison for peace and stability in Europe. The deployment of combat units of the Bundeswehr to the Russian border threatens the vital interests of the German population. The German Bundestag must debate it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What in the name of heaven does Merkel think she is doing, with this illegal placement of troops, and absolutely zero German Parliamentary debate?!?

Has Merkel been given her "marching orders" by NATO to prepare for a war against Russia?!?

This following article also appeared in globalresearch.ca yesterday, talking about Germany sending troops to...wait for it.... LITHUANIA!!

The announcement of a possible deployment of German troops to Lithuania for “containment” of Russia has made quite a stir in the media and the social networks in Germany. The opinions are often widely divergent. From the perspective of the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Berlin faces a dilemma. If Germany would refuse the deployment of troops, that would be a lack of solidarity towards the Baltic States. Should it agree, that would strain relations with Russia. However, Deutsche Rundfunk [The German Radio] considers these plans quite sound: NATO must guarantee the “territorial integrity of the countries” that “feel unsafe” near Russia. But this reason, that the states felt threatened by Russia, the Left-politician Gregor Gysi considers unconvincing. “First, it is not about feelings, but the question of whether a real threat exists. Second, these 250 soldiers would be in case of a real war more than superfluous,” said Gysi on his Facebook page. To make his point even clearer, the politician thinks back on history: “Therefore, it is historically oblivious, and escalating, to send troops now to the Russian border”

The US and the West, through NATO, appear to be hell-bent in starting a war with Russia; unfortunately, it is a war that NATO and the US may well not win.

And I say this because at this time in its history, the US military does not have the weaponry, the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome to war with Russia.

Seymour Hersh Says Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels

The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books («Whose Sarin?» and «The Red Line and the Rat Line») has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad. «By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria».

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, these charges are true, is this REALLY "the woman" you want to have in the White House as President?!?

The woman for whom money and power mean....EVERYTHING, and she will do or say ANYTHING to hang on to it if elected, no matter how badly it effected the American people?!?

The woman who has proven that she will do ANYTHING to "regime change" governments not to the US government's liking?!?

Please remember, if she is on the Democratic ticket in November, and steals the election, or gets voted in, she is a warmonger of the highest order, and has never seen a US military intervention she did not like.

Oh yes, and bet on this: the return of the military draft, for both young men and women.

I remember, in those days right after the false flag sarin attack in Syria, how intensely Obama and Kerry were arguing that the US military had no choice but to invade Syria, and regime-change the country.

And the man who became Syria's international saviour, Russia's Vladimir Putin, was, fortunately, able to talk some sense into the American government, and the US government blinked.

The wars which the US has started, and are festering and simmering, globally, like a bad, contagious infection, will continue apace under a second Clinton presidency; that's just the cold hard reality.

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

Iraq Protesters Leave Baghdad Green Zone on Cleric’s Order

After a day of sleeping, praying and even swimming in the Green Zone, the government citadel historically off limits to ordinary Iraqis, protesters began leaving Sunday evening on orders from the man who had sent them: Moktada al-Sadr, the influential Shiite cleric.

In a statement issued from the holy city of Najaf in southern Iraq, Mr. Sadr directed his followers to leave the Green Zone in an orderly fashion, to chant for Iraq and not a sect, and to help clean the space they had occupied.

A day earlier, hundreds of protesters demanding an end to corruption stormed the fortified Green Zone in dramatic scenes that hinted at revolution. But by Sunday evening the episode had become something less: an affirmation of Mr. Sadr’s sway over the street, but one aimed at pressuring the government to enact promised reforms rather than bringing it down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... was a warning by the Cleric Muqtada al Sadr; and I hope like crazy that the Iraqi government is listening with both ears.

Because if these reforms Al Sadr has requested are not implemented, the Iraqi government could well have a popular revolution on its hands, with no way to stem it or stop it.

I am reasonably sure that before this protest, Al-Sadr has definitely "got the band back together", i.e., reconstituted the Mahdi Army, which was a formidable fighting machine, and is now ready to fight against a tyrannical, US-government-enabled central government in Baghdad.

So IF Al-Sadr does spark a successful revolution in Iraq, this puts the US government in a nightmare scenario of its own making. The US placed their puppet, al-Abadi in power, just as they did with the Shah of Iran in 1953.

And we can all remember just how well that ended in 1979, with the Iranian revolution.

So what happens if Al-Abadi government is regime-changed, courtesy of Al Sadr and the Mahdi Army?!?

The options for the US government and military are pretty bleak.

They can withdraw all US forces, and allow for a completely successful revolution against the current government.

This means that Iraqi oil would be controlled and paid for by other than US or US-allied interests, and not sold in US dollars.

However, that would mean to having to admit that the invasion and occupation of Iraq were horrific mistakes; and neither the American government nor our military can admit to having made mistakes.

It appears to me that the most likely scenario to evolve, looking at the facts on the ground, is a massive influx of US troops to attempt to stem the tide and momentum of Al-Sadr's drive to reclaim the Iraqi government for the Iraqi people.

One lesson which neither the US government our our military seemed to have absorbed is, that in order to win, you have to be on the right, and moral, side of history.

Being on the side of monied and corporate interests will ultimately crash and burn every time. Private corporations made a killing (sometimes, literally) through contracts which the US government gave them to provide goods or services for our military, and theoretically, the Iraqi people.

Welcome to what is about to become the US government's 21st century Vietnam War.

And don't discount the return of the draft in this country; this time, drafting young women as well as young men for a new meat grinder, this time Iraq.

'Spying Billboards' Under Fire for Tapping Into People's Cellphones

A U.S. senator is calling for a federal investigation into an outdoor advertising company's latest effort to target billboard ads to specific consumers.

New York Sen. Charles Schumer has dubbed Clear Channel Outdoor Americas' so-called RADAR program "spying billboards," warning the service may violate privacy rights by tracking people's cell phone data via the ad space.

"A person's cellphone should not become a James Bond-like personal tracking device for a corporation to gather information about consumers without their consent," Schumer, a Democrat, said in a statement ahead of a planned news conference Sunday in Times Square, where the company operates billboards.

But the company, which operates more than 675,000 billboards throughout the world, argues that characterization of its program is inaccurate, insisting it only uses anonymous data collected by other companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, there has to be a unique identifier assigned to those being tracked to coordinate the ads.

Now, I personally don't have a problem with this. If I have to look at billboards anyway I prefer them to be for something I find interesting. However there are two problems. The first is that people like myself who browse subjects for news sites may build up a totally inaccurate ad profile. Second (and of more concern) people riding with you may infer things about your private life from the billboards being show to you.

Exclusive Data Analysis: Prediction Markets Show Cruz Craters After Deal With Kasich; Fiorina, Pence Not Boosting Him

Prediction market analyses compiled by Breitbart News show that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97%
crashed his standing in the state of Indiana when he cut a deal with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, whereby Kasich ceded the state to Cruz.

When looking at the specific chart about who, between Trump and Cruz, has the best shot at winning the Hoosier State, it is extraordinarily clear that a dramatic shift came on April 24—the same day Cruz and Kasich announced their deal—showing that this deal between the two campaigns aiming to work together against Trump seems to have failed.

1971: Nixon Interrupts TV Western 'Bonanza,' Announces End Of Bretton Woods

On August 15, 1971 Richard Nixon signed Executive Order 11615. Later that evening he appeared on television to make his announcement, interrupting the TV show Bonanza. Nixon tried to convince the American people that he was protecting them from the international money interests. He told the people that it was a complicated issue, and proceeded to explain it in simple terms. He continued, explaining that he was suspending the convertibility of dollars into gold, and charging a 10% tariff on imports.

LEAKED DOCS REVEAL TTIP TRADE DEAL IN JEOPARDY AS "IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES" EMERGE

Now, according to leaked negotiating drafts and internal positions, which were obtained by Greenpeace and seen by the Guardian, it seems the stumbling blocks ahead of the TTIP's implementation are indeed substantial, and potentially dealbreaking. As the Guardian reports, talks for a free trade deal between Europe and the US face a serious impasse with "irreconcilable" differences in some areas.

The leaked texts also show that the two sides are at odds "over US demands that would require the EU to break promises it has made on environmental protection."

As Obama said last week during his whirlwind tour of Europe, and especially his visit to Hanover where thousands of Germans were protesting the TTRIP at the same time, he was confident a deal could be reached. "But the leaked negotiating drafts and internal positions, which were obtained by Greenpeace and seen by the Guardian, paint a very different picture."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good.

This legislation would have supplanted national governments with a hideous corpratocracy, and a regulatory structure which would crush all small business, particularly here in the US.

One Year of Silence on Hillary Clinton Uranium Deal

–Bill and Hillary Clinton had helped a Canadian financier named Frank Giustra and a small Canadian company obtain a lucrative uranium mining concession from the dictator in Kazakhstan;

–The same Canadian company, renamed Uranium One, bought uranium concessions in the United States;

–The Russian government came calling and sought to buy that Canadian company for a price that would mean big profits for the Canadian investors;

–For the Russians to buy that Canadian company, it would require the approval of the Obama administration, including Hillary’s State Department, because uranium is a strategically important commodity;

–Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval;

–Some of the donations, including those from the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Teler, were kept secret, even though the Clintons promised to disclose all donations;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corruption sticks to this "power couple" like fleas stick to a dog; and trust me, that is not going to change if Hillary Clinton wins/steals this election.

Yes, I would love to see a woman in the White House; someone knowledgeable, trustworthy, and capable of seeing to it that this country resolves its geopolitical differences with intelligent, hard-won negotiations, rather than wars. I also want a President who will give the highest level of medical/emotional support to our Vets; as much as I abhor war, these people have earned it, and should get it, period, end of discussion.

Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton has none of these attributes; she is a war monger of the highest order, autocratic, abrasive, and will ultimately be constantly looking out for her cronies, and not the real needs and concerns of We the People.

"Pay to Play" will NOT end in another Clinton presidency.

KERRY TO NEGOTIATE NEW CEASEFIRE IN SYRIA - BUT WITH HIS OWN SIDE

U.S. Secretary of State is in Geneva today to renegotiate a cessation of hostilities between the Syrian government forces and the foreign supported "rebels" in Syria. But there is something very curious going on with these negotiations. Kerry will neither talk with the Syrian government nor with the Russians. The Russian Foreign Minister is not even expected to come.

No, Kerry is negotiating with the U.S. allies Jordan and Saudi Arabia who support the same "rebels" that are opposed to the Syrian government that the U.S. itself supported all along. He now asks them to separate their proxy forces in Syria from the terrorist organization al-Qaeda/Jabhat al-Nusra.

There is simply no basis for Kerry to beg for a ceasefire for "rebel" held areas of Aleppo city when his own military says that these are in the hands of al-Qaeda which the UNSC calls to eradicate. The Russian's have said that much.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflipping unbelievable, but this is the shambolic state of American foreign policy these days.

OSAMA BIN LADEN VOICE ACTOR REVEALS HE FAKED PROPAGANDA VIDEOS

In an interview with the New York Times, a former ABC News intern reveals that he was responsible for “faking” Osama bin Laden’s accent, which the network used to dub over various bin Laden videos and broadcast to the world.

The 22 year old intern worked on ABC’s program “Nightline”, and as soon as the September 11 attacks occurred he was asked by a producer to voice-over an English translation of bin Laden’s alleged “confession”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The attachment of Osama bin Laden to 9/11 was simply a ruse, and completely as fraudulent as was using this kid's voice to record a an false "confession" from Bin Laden regarding this horrific false flag.

It was all about the US government getting " emotional traction" by steering the narrative in the direction they wanted it to go, to justify the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and attempting to quash all reasonable arguments against these wars.

Past President of American Public Health Association: "Cattle That Drank The Fracking Fluid Actually Died An Hour After Drinking It"

The aftermath of recent floods in Texas have raised concerns about contamination of oil fracturing fluid throughout the region. Dr. Walter Tsou, past president of the American Public Health Association, notes "I'm sure it will get into the groundwater and streams and creeks...In other areas, cattle that drank the fracking fluid actually died an hour after drinking it. There are potential carcinogens that can lead to leukemia, brain cancer and other endocrine disruptors that can affect premature births. So it is not good to drink fracked wastewater."

DEUTSCHE BANK HAS SYSTEMIC MONEY LAUNDERING, TERRORIST FINANCING AND SANCTIONS PROBLEMS: UK REGULATOR

Just two days after Deutsche Bank fired the head of its "integrity committee", Georg Thoma who had been originally tasked with clearing up the bank's past scandals, because according to DB's vice chairman Alfred Herling, Thoma had been "overzealous" and "goes too far when he demands ever wider investigations and more and more lawyers come marching up", today the UK financial watchdog agency FCA announced that Germany's biggest bank has "serious" and "systemic" failings in its controls against money laundering, terrorist financing and sanctions, the Financial Times reported.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), has now ordered a separate independent review, the FT reported the letter as saying. The FCA declined to comment.

In other words instad of firing it "Chief Ethics Officer" (sic), Deutsche should have ideally hired a few more because as a result of this latest probe it is most likely looking at billions more in settlement charges over the next 6 - 12 months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Deutsche Bank is giving regulators (and the public) the illusion of fixing these problems, but this illusion will ultimately not fix the problem, because there is too much money to be made illegally from these activities to quit them.

And the fines?!? Play money, compared with what can be earned these illegal earnings.

Obama Administration Set To Give Israel Largest Aid Package In U.S. History

By Brandon Turbeville

Falsely decried as an “anti-Israel” administration, the Obama White House is signaling that it is open to providing Israel with an unprecedented amount of support both in terms of financing and military assistance. If the reports coming out of Israeli media are true, the new agreement with Israel would be the largest amount of aid provided to any country in U.S. history...

The Trump Test

The reaction to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s much-awaited foreign policy speech from the Washington elites was all-too-predictable: they sneered and snickered that he had mispronounced “Tanzania.” The more substantive criticisms weren’t much better: perpetual warmonger Lindsey Graham, whose presidential bid garnered zero percent in the polls, tweeted “Trump’s FP speech not conservative. It’s isolationism surrounded by disconnected thought, demonstrates lack of understanding threats we face.” For Graham, anything less than starting World War III is “isolationism” – a view that gives us some insight into why his presidential campaign was the biggest flop since the “new” Coke.

Exhibit One in Any Future American War Crimes Trial

These acts, in other words, are considered beyond the pale when Donald Trump suggests them, but here’s the strangeness of it all: what The Donald is only mouthing off about, a perfectly real American president (and vice president and secretary of defense, and so on) actually did. Among other things, under the euphemistic term “enhanced interrogation techniques,” they ordered the CIA to use classic torture practices including waterboarding (which, in blunter times, had been known as “the water torture”). They also let the U.S. military loose to torture and abuse prisoners in their custody. They green-lighted the CIA to kidnap terror suspects (who sometimes turned out to be perfectly innocent people) off the streets of cities around the world, as well as from the backlands of the planet, and transported them to the prisons of some of the worst torture regimes or to secret detention centers (“black sites”) the CIA was allowed to set up in compliant countries.

Top cotton producer in Africa drops GMO cotton after horrible quality problems with the crops... 'economically unviable' to grow them

The 10th largest cotton producer in the world is giving up on Monsanto's genetically modified Bt cotton. Burkina Faso, Africa's top cotton producer, has been having some serious problems with the quality of the cotton being produced from Monsanto's GM seed. The strands of cotton being produced are far too short, making them unworkable for spinning applications. The yarn produced from GM cotton is weaker and takes longer to spin. The entire region is now planning "tactical withdrawal" of Monsanto's transgenic cotton. The sub-par GM product is proving to be economically unviable.

After the leaks today showing just what it really stands for, this could be the end for TTIP

The leaked TTIP documents, published by Greenpeace this morning, run to 248 pages and cover 13 of the 17 chapters where the final agreement has begun to take shape. The texts include highly controversial subjects such as EU food safety standards, already known to be at risk from TTIP, as well as details of specific threats such as the US plan to end Europe’s ban on genetically modified foods.

UK Parliament 'would not be able to stop NHS sell-off under TTIP'

The documents show that US corporations will be granted unprecedented powers over any new public health or safety regulations to be introduced in future. If any European government does dare to bring in laws to raise social or environmental standards, TTIP will grant US investors the right to sue for loss of profits in their own corporate court system that is unavailable to domestic firms, governments or anyone else.
