Lead contamination in Washington, D.C. drinking water

The issue became front page news when the Washington Post ran an article titled "Water in D.C. Exceeds EPA Lead Limit" on January 31, 2004 across six columns of page A1.[8][10] Reporter David Nakamura was contacted by one of the homeowners whose water was tested by WASA during its survey after he received the test results.[1] Nakamura—who had no prior experience with clean water issues—initially thought it was a minor issue, but agreed to help the homeowner get a response from WASA.[10] When WASA would not give him a straight answer, Nakamura pressed them for full data on the tests.[10] Nakamura says that, even though he was "stunned" at the facts reported in that first story, the Post "had no idea about the size and scope of what was to follow."[10]

Iraq rescue op: combat or not?; Assad clears Russia to hit ISIS; USAF’s secret bomber-design team; Russian satellites behaving oddly; and just a bit more…

Details emerge of the rescue operation that led to the first U.S. combat death in Iraq in four years. The mission’s objective: freeing 17 kidnapped Peshmerga fighters who faced imminent execution at an improvised prison at the former home of an Iraqi judge. But when U.S. and Kurdish commandos arrived on the scene Thursday morning, they found and freed about 50 more kidnapped Iraqis.

This was seen as a measure of the relative judgment that he and another adviser to the President at the time, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, exhibited.

South Carolina Mother Arrested For Child Abuse After Questioning Doctors and Losing her Children

Danielle and William Headley’s four boys were seized by South Carolina Child Protective Services in July, following frustration by the parents over the care that their youngest son, Jack, now 4, was receiving at Greenville Memorial Hospital. (See original story here.) A Child Abuse Specialist has accused Danielle of Munchausen by Proxy, and last week, Danielle was arrested on charges of Child Abuse and Neglect.

The family is devastated and maintains that Danielle is innocent of any wrong-doing. It has been over 100 days since any family member has been permitted to see the children.

According to a report from FOX Carolina, investigators told a judge that Jack had made “significant improvements” after he was removed from his parents’ care on July 10 and placed into foster care. That is the basis of the charges against Danielle. However, the family and friends are unsure how any of the events that have unfolded could possibly be Danielle’s fault.

Police got Hager data without court order

Westpac handed over private details without judicial authorisation, though other firms declined, court documents show.

Detectives investigating the Dirty Politics hacker Rawshark sought the banking, telephone and travel records of author and journalist Nicky Hager without any search order or other legal power.

Court records show Westpac - the government's banker for 26 years - handed over "almost 10 months of transactions from Mr Hager's three accounts" at the request of detectives investigating the hacking of Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater's email and social media accounts.

Other companies that were asked for Hager's private details told police to come back with a court order, which would have legally obliged them to surrender the information.

The details are revealed in documents obtained from the High Court by the Scoop news site, which intends to publish the full material today.

Bank Of America Folds and Reverses $70 In 'Late Fees' After We Tell them to Just Cancel the Card

A few months ago when my wife and I returned from our 35-day European vacation, she noticed that we had two $35 late fees on our Bank of America credit card. Apparently we had made the online payment too late in the day, and it wasn't processed until a day after the 'due date.' They then added another $35 fee for something or other, so our account incurred both these charges. Being a notorious cheapskate, I called up BofA and asked if they could remove the $70 in penalty fees. After all, we only keep the card active to maintain a credit line and we pay the balance off every month like clockwork. They refused to waive the fees. The phone rep said in a very arrogant and condescending tone, "NO, we are not going to reverse those charges, the two fees of thirty five dollars will remain." I then told him in a poker face manner, "Okay, then we're just going to cancel the card then. Transfer me to that department, now."

In Wielding Rarely Used Veto, President Obama Puts Budget Heat on Republicans

President Obama on Thursday vetoed a $612 billion defense policy bill, rejecting a broadly supported measure that sets funding for military salaries and equipment, and intensifying his struggle with the Republican-led Congress over federal spending.
Stories from Our Advertisers

Mr. Obama has wielded the veto only four other times since taking office in 2009, and his fifth one Thursday signaled his determination to use the defense bill as a bargaining chip to push Republicans to abandon strict spending limits on military and domestic programs enacted in the 2011 Budget Control Act.

TPP would allow milk from cows receiving hormones into Canada

As dairy imports from the United States appear set to increase under the terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, Canadian consumers concerned about drinking milk from cows receiving hormones will need to read their labels more carefully.

In the agreement in principle reached Oct. 5, Canada conceded an additional 3.25 per cent of its dairy market to imports from the 11 other Pacific Rim countries signing on, most notably the U.S., New Zealand and Australia.

That amount may not seem significant, but until recently, Canada's supply-managed dairy sector offered only the stingiest of tariff-free market access to its trading partners, on specific terms — such as the cheese deal struck with the European Union in 2013.

Silencing a Whistle-Blower, Gladio B and the Origins of ISIS, Interview with Sibel Edmonds

So the role of these paramilitary units, funded, directed, managed, armed by the CIA and NATO was, during these years, in Europe and elsewhere, were to create terror events. You know, blow up bombs, um, gun down people, set, let’s say a shopping centre on fire, and then blame it on the communist net-communist networks. And they did hundreds of such operations. There are several good books from historians who have documented these false flag terror events, terror events that were created, implemented, brought about by the CIA/NATO’s paramilitary units within Eastern Europe, in Italy, and in Italy they were very big, but the biggest nation that they had the biggest units, we just had its own also office inside the Pentagon was in Turkey, and that’s where I’m from! (chuckle!) – the Turkish arm of the Gladio network.

So, they did all this and you’d think that once the Soviet Union dissolved in 1990-1991, the operation would have been basically shut down, because this was against communism so-called. That’s the uh basically the competition between the two superpowers, not per se the communism as ideology, it was the fight for the dominance – global dominance. But they didn’t shut it down.

They switched that and they changed the operation from – the original operation to Operation B, Gladio Operation B.

Going to War: Tony Blair’s “Contract in Blood”

It reads like a whodunit document behind a failed criminal enterprise. As it should –it figured as a vital step behind the invasion of Iraq in 2003. And it was found in a stash of previously secret correspondence on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server.

The Colin Powell memorandum in preparation for the Crawford summit of April 2002 (yes, that Powell, who has undertaken some considered Pilate handwashing ever since), was more damning than most. It outlined what the British role behind justifying an imminent war with shoddy grounds would look like. More importantly, it provides ample carrion for the prosecution against Tony Blair for that often discounted charge of crimes against peace.

Ever since becoming prime minister of Britain, the greatest public relations machine to disgrace Westminster went into service for the US cause. Blair’s role was deemed indispensable to providing the right colouration for what was coming: regime change in Iraq.

E. Howard Hunt, Watergate & The JFK Assassination

On this edition of DTRH Popeye welcomes to the broadcast Saint John Hunt, author and son of famed Watergate burglar, and CIA super spy E. Howard Hunt. The two of them start off with a simple question, “Who was E. Howard Hunt? Saint John answers this question by giving the listener a detailed background on his father including some of the events that E. Howard Hunt was involved in, and some of the people connected to him. This leads to Hunt’s involvement in the JFK assassination, his deathbed confession to Saint John about it, and what he possibly meant when he said “I was a bench warmer.” They then get into Watergate, his dad’s arrest, and the events which led to his mother Dorothy Hunt’s murder by plane crash into a suburban area. This is one powerful broadcast, both emotionally and intellectually. Take the time to tune in and learn some true history.

While Sputnik cannot independently verify the authenticity of the video, which was originally found on LiveLeak by Russia Insider, it appears to show IS militants creating aerial mines out of condoms, which are then released into the skies over Idlib.

In hunt for US terror recruits, FBI agents set traps

Study of 3 Psychedelics Finds They Do No Harm but Actually Improve Mental Health

A new study from the Journal of Psychopharmacology has found that taking psychedelic drugs does not result in impairment of mental health or an increased risk of depression. From the three drugs that were involved (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide or LSD, Psilocybin and Mescaline), the study declared that there are ‘no significant associations between lifetime use of psychedelics and increased likelihood of past year serious psychological distress, mental health treatment, suicidal thoughts, suicidal plans and suicide attempt, depression and anxiety.’

Syria Advances as Russia Strikes ISIL: Another Week in Review

Over the past week, Russia destroyed 363 ISIL installations, as the Syrian army continues offensives around the country to combat terrorist groups.

Russia's presence in Syria led to a change in the focus of the US-led coalition's strikes against ISIL. The US continues minor airstrikes in Syria, generally using drones and striking near the Iraqi and Turkish borders. However, the drone use has created issues of air control, as Russian aircraft are often forced to fly in close proximity with US drones, as Russia's defense ministry showed in a fly-by of a MQ-9 Reaper drone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russian troops have been remarkably effective in working to rid Syria of ALL terrorists (including the American funded and armed terrorists).

Pentagon’s 2016 Defense Budget: $1.6 Billion for a Proxy Army Against Russia

America is about to get more "appropriately vetted" rebels to go with the four or five the Pentagon got out of the $500 million spent last year! Woohoo!

But at least amendments to this year’s bill would finally outlaw the training and arming of Ukraine’s notorious paramilitary neo-Nazi “Azov” battalion which America had previously been funding. Azov has been described not to but by US lawmakers as a “fascist” and “openly neo Nazi” group, and yet, the government has knowingly been using taxpayer dollars to fund them, while the US media pretends to ignore the war atrocities they’ve committed over there against people who voted 90%+ for Ukrainian President Yanukovych, overthrown by the US with the help of said Nazis to put in a US-backed puppet government so they can screw with Russia and give seats on the Board of Directors of the largest private Ukrainian gas producer to people like Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

They Profit, We Die: Toxic Agriculture and the Poisoning of Soils, Human Health and the Environment

Our food system is in big trouble. It’s in big trouble because the global agritech/agribusiness sector is poisoning it, us and the environment with its pesticides, herbicides, GMOs and various other chemical inputs. The Rockefeller clan exported the petrochemical intensive ‘green revolution’ around the world with the aim of ripping up indigenous agriculture to cement its hegemony over global agriculture and to help the US create food deficit regions and thus use agriculture as a tool of foreign policy.

This was only made possible and continues to be made possible because of lavish funds, slick PR, compliant politicians and scientists and the undermining and capture of regulatory and policy decision-making bodies that supposedly serve the public interest.

Webmaster's Commentary:

According to its own website, the CIA are prohibited from conduct spying operations on US soil:

“By law, the CIA is specifically prohibited from collecting foreign intelligence concerning the domestic activities of US citizens. Its mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By direction of the president in Executive Order 12333 of 1981 and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against US citizens…”

Cisa amendment would allow US to jail foreigners for crimes committed abroad

An amendment to a controversial cybersecurity bill will allow US courts to pursue and jail foreign nationals even if the crimes they commit are against other foreigners and on foreign soil.

The main aim of the amendment to the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (Cisa), which passed a key Senate hurdle on Thursday, is to lower the barrier for prosecuting crimes committed abroad. But the amended law would make it a crime punishable by US prison time not merely to clone the credit card or steal the Netflix password of an American citizen, but to take unauthorized information from any American company, no matter where it happens.

In other words, if a French national hacks a Spanish national’s MasterCard, she could be subject to 10 years in US prison under laws changed by the bill.

Call me silly, I do not feel even one bit more "protected" by this provision of CISA than I did before this monstrosity got passed.

The planes are slow-moving A-10 Thunderbolts, designed as close support planes for ground troops, and are being planned for use backing “Arab and Kurdish militants” on the ground.

This new deployment comes amid reports of a serious debate going on in the administration on a dramatic buildup of the war in Syria, aimed at spiting Russia for its own anti-ISIS war. Secretary of State John Kerry is said to be leading a push for a show of force, including declaring a “no fly zone” in northern Syria and attempting to block Russia from the area militarily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The attempt at establishing a "no fly zone" in Northern Syria would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid things the US government and military could possibly do at this moment.

Unfortunately, that being said, this is no guarantee that the US government will not do it.

A direct military confrontation with Russia over Syria is a recipe for absolute, unmitigated disaster in Syria, and that Kerry doesn't have the horse-sense to recognise this, is deeply disturbing to me.

And apparently, the State Department's view of such a move ("The State Department sees that as the ultimate move to really stick it to Russia,...") is proof positive that they have collectively OD'd on the koolaid of their own jingoism.

Since Russia's successful military strikes to kill ALL the terrorists in Syria (including those funded by the US government), much of the this country's government has been behaving like wounded, cornered animals; and wounded, cornered animals are always dangerous.

iPhone Q1 2016 Sales Estimates: Apple Inc.'s Smartphone Sales May Decline For First Time, Says Analyst

The iPhone 6S could be Apple's first flagship smartphone that fails to outdo its predecessor. In Apple Inc.’s report for the October-December quarter, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo forecasts iPhone sales to come in between 70 million and 75 million units, according to a research note obtained by MacRumors.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Nowhere could I find the total price for the phone from which I could figure out how many months I would have to pay that $25. At that point, I stopped reading.

Amish girl who fled United States to escape forced chemotherapy is now cancer-free

Some might call it a "miracle," but alternative and holistic medicine healers aren't really surprised to learn that a 12-year old Amish girl is now cancer-free — after her doctors testified in court just six months ago that she would be dead by now if her family were permitted to refuse her chemotherapy.

As reported by the Medina Gazette, of Medina County, Ohio, Maurice Thompson, head of the libertarian non-profit group 1852 Center for Constitutional Law, said young Sarah Hershberger now shows no signs of being stricken with cancer at all and appears to be healthy.

"She had MRIs and blood work, and the judge over the last year helped facilitate at least one trip to the Cleveland Clinic. The MRIs did not show any cancer," Thompson told the Gazette recently.

He added that her family is continuing to treat her with less invasive alternative medicine.

Herd Immunity vs. Viral Shedding: Who’s infecting whom?

Herd immunity, so it is claimed, provides indirect protection to the unvaccinated. How? Here’s how the reasoning goes: if enough people get vaccinated, when a contagious disease hits a community, it spreads less quickly than if the majority were not vaccinated, since they are now protected

PUTIN: US USING TERRORISTS AS ‘BATTERING RAM TO OVERTHROW DISLIKED REGIMES’

During the 12th annual meeting, entitled “Societies Between War and Peace: Overcoming the Logic of Conflict in Tomorrow’s World,” Putin spoke to numerous international issues including the ongoing war in Syria and the West’s questionable practices in the fight against Bashar al-Assad.

“Success in fighting terrorists cannot be reached if using some of them as a battering ram to overthrow disliked regimes,” Putin said. “It’s just an illusion that they can be dealt with [later], removed from power and somehow negotiated with.”

Putin also took aim at so-called US-backed “moderate rebels,” who admittedly support and fight alongside terrorist organizations such as ISIL and the al-Nusra Front.

“Why play with words dividing terrorists into moderate and not moderate,” the Russian president added. “What’s the difference?”

Israeli rabbis: killing Palestinians ‘religious duty’

Israeli Jewish Rabbis have declared the killing of Palestinian resistance fighters “a religious duty”, Israeli media reported on Sunday.

Israeli news website Walla reported that right-wing rabbis replied to questions including: “Am I allowed to kick the insurgent, hit him or shoot him in order to kill him after he has been arrested or is this prohibited?”

Rabbi Rav Benzion Mutzafi replied: “It is not only desirable to do so, but it is a religious duty that you hold his head down to the ground and hit him until his last breath.”

San Diego company slaps ‘Pharma Bro’ down by offering same cancer drug for $1 a pill

an Diego-based company announced on Thursday that it would compete with Martin Shkreli’s Turing Pharmaceuticals by offering the same drug used to help AIDS and cancer patients for $1 a pill, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, a compounding-drug firm, said it would begin selling its own version of the generic drug pyrimethamine, which Turing was marketing under the name Daraprim. Shkreli was roundly criticized last month after his company raised the price for the drug from $13.50 a pill to $750 a pill after acquiring the patent.

Webmaster's Commentary:

JOHN MCCAIN LEADS THE CHARGE TO CUT SOLDIER BENEFITS; MONEY FOR TERRORISTS BUT NOT FOR TROOPS

While lawmakers seem to have no problem finding funds for bombs fighter jets and terrorists in Syria and Iraq, it seems that it is much more difficult for them to find money to pay American soldiers for their service and pay for their healthcare once that service is over.

This is because Congressional Defense leaders on Tuesday announced that they are looking to enact more “entitlement and personnel reforms” in 2016.

The bill being submitted and debated by Congress would provide a much lower than anticipated pay raise for U.S. troops beginning in January 2016. It includes cuts in the growth of military housing stipends, an introduction of new co-pays for some military drug prescriptions and a scale-down of the commissary benefit.

The bill also includes changes to the traditional military retirement system and an overhaul of military healthcare offerings like Tricare.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And when people stop enlisting, after realizing what a completely raw deal military service in this US has become, there is draft legislation, still floating in Committee for the last two years, to make military service compulsory.

Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced legislation on Friday that would reintroduce the draft and would require all women to register for the Selective Service. These two bills aim to challenge the decisions that are made to send our troops into harm's way. Ten years ago on February 15, 2003, fifteen million people across 800 cities protested the invasion of Iraq, making it the largest antiwar rally in history. "Now that women can serve in combat they should register for the Selective Service alongside their male counterparts," said Rangel. "Reinstating the draft and requiring women to register for the Selective Service would compel the American public to have a stake in the wars we fight as a nation. We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm's way." The National Universal Service Act (H.R 747), also known as the "draft" bill, would require 30 million people in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform two years of national service in either the armed services or in civilian life. It would build upon the community service infrastructure already in place such as the Peace Corps and AmeriCorps, as well as local initiatives such as NYC Serve. The National Universal Service Act was first introduced in 2003 at the height of protest against going to war with Iraq, and was reintroduced in 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2011. Rangel's All American Selective Service Act (H.R. 748) would require women to enroll in the Selective Service System, which would double the number of registrants. The current law requires only men ages 18 to 25 to register, and there are approximately 13.5 million in the registry. "I served in Korea, and understand that sometimes war is inevitable," Rangel continued. "However military engagement should be our last resort. If we must go to war, every American should be compelled to stop and think twice about whether it is worth sending our brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters to fight. Currently less than one percent of America's population is unfairly shouldering the burden of war."

I would remind Representative Rangel that it is never the people of this country who get to decide about going to war; Constitutionally, it is the Congress' power, and ONLY the Congress' power - to declare war.

The people of this country have absolutely no say in this whatsoever.

Ex-Israeli minister sued over flotilla raid that killed Turkish-American

The Turkish parents of 19-year-old Furkan Do?an, who was among 10 killed in the raid, sued Barak in federal court in Los Angeles on Oct. 16, claiming unlawful death and torture.

Russian Air Force cuts off ISIS supply lines by bombing bridge over Euphrates

Russia’s airplanes cut off routes used by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) to deliver supplies to Syria from Iraq by bombing a bridge over the Euphrates River, the Russian General Staff said.

“The bridge over the Euphrates River near [the Syrian city of] Deir ez-Zor was a key point of the logistics chain [of IS]. Today Russian pilots carried out a surgical strike against the object,” the deputy chief of the General Staff of Russia, Colonel General Andrey Kartapolov, said on Thursday during a news briefing, adding that the terrorist group’s armament and ammunition delivery route had been cut off.

Kartapolov also stressed that the strike was delivered in a region that, according to the US military, was fully controlled by IS militants.

There’s a Good Chance Your Bank Is Committing a Major Crime Right Now

On April 10, 2006, Mexican authorities searched through a DC-9 jet at the airport in Ciudad del Carmen. They found more than five tons of cocaine… valued at more than $100 million.

If you're like many Americans, you're not surprised by a story like this. Not a year goes by without a few big media stories about Mexican drug cartels.

However, you probably will be very surprised to learn who aided and abetted the drug operation: it was US banking giant Wachovia.

After an investigation that took years, Wells Fargo, which now owns Wachovia, paid a $160 million fine to settle the case. "Wachovia's blatant disregard for our banking laws gave international cocaine cartels a virtual carte blanche to finance their operations," said federal prosecutor Jeffrey Sloman.

You might also be surprised to hear that Wachovia's fine wasn't an isolated case.

Some 3,500 Daesh fighters in Afghanistan: Russian diplomat

Approximately 3,500 Islamic State fighters operate in Afghanistan and the group is recruiting members from local groups and the youth, Russian Ambassador to Tajikistan Igor Lyakin-Frolov says.

“They’ve met their tasks, according to some information, there are approximately 3,500 militants currently in the ranks of the Islamic State in Afghanistan,” Lyakin-Frolov told RIA Novosti in an interview. He said that the Islamic State has already settled in 25 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.

Further, says Doshi, the studies that underlie the CDC’s policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims.

Why Is The U.S. Silently Bombing Syria's Electricity Network?

The plant is in the hands of the Islamic State but there is an informal agreement between the government, which controls the distribution network, and those who hold the power generating station:

[T]he agreement of understanding pertains to the division of the electricity supply between the parties, whereby ISIS will receive 60% of the quota and the Syrian regime will receive 40%.

Both sides will have some electricity and the civilian as well as fighters on both side will be better off than without electricity. No side has a motive to destroy that plant.

But last night the U.S. coalition bombed the Aleppo thermal power plant and destroyed parts of it:

A military source told SANA that warplanes of the Washington alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare’a, Tal Sha’er, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday.

The U.S. Financial And Political Is A Complete Fraud

Perhaps most emblematic of this complete fraud and corruption that has engulfed our system is the spectacle of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for President. She is clearly the front-running candidate for the Democrats and likely would win a head-to-head against any of the Republicans. How is this sanely possible?

Anyone who bothered to pick up a newspaper just a few times per year since 1991, when Bill was first running for President, knows that Hillary is probably the most corrupt attorney and politician in the history of the country. Whitewater and her “successful” foray in cattle futures (anyone remember those?) don’t even garner scrutiny anymore because her list of dirty laundry is so long and filthy. Needless to say, Hillary Clinton should be in front of a firing squad – not in front of Congress justifying her role in Benghazi and the likely next President of the U.S.

Anyone who supports her candidacy is either woefully ignorant, mildly retrarded or insanely naive.

The U.S. Navy’s Big Mistake?—Building Tons of Supercarriers

The Pentagon behaves as if aircraft carriers will rule forever … they won’t
by DAVID W. WISE

“History,” it has been written, “does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” Today it’s rhyming with Gen. Billy Mitchell. In the 1920s, Mitchell challenged conventional thinking by advocating air power at sea in the face of a naval establishment dominated by battleship proponents.

The hubris of the “battleship Navy” was such that just nine days before Pearl Harbor, the official program for the 1941 Army-Navy game displayed a full page photograph of the battleship USS Arizona with language virtually extolling its invincibility.

Of course, the reason that no one had yet sunk a battleship from the air?—?in combat?—?was that no one had yet tried.

In fact, Mitchell sank a captured German battleship, the Ostfriesland, in an aerial demonstration back in 1921, but the Navy said that the test proved nothing. Two of the observers that day were officials from Japan.

Sex, Lies and YouTube Videos (Reprised for Obvious Reasons)

The smoking gun, a phone call from Hillary Clinton to the Prime Minister of Egypt, within 12 hours of the terrorist trashing of the American consulate, revealed today at the Benghazi hearings:

"We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest."

I repeat:

"We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest."

This, after an e-mail to Chelsea Clinton the very night of the attack saying the same thing.

Yet Hillary, Susan Rice and the Obatollah pushed the YouTube video lie for weeks. The maker of the video (who should have been protected under the First Amendment) was jailed. They should be in jail, and in any country governed by laws, would be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The next obvious question (pointedly not asked by the Benghazi committee) was why this terror attack was concealed from the American people? Terror attacks are very useful for the US Government to justify its aggression against other countries. So much so that the FBI has devoted a large amount of resources to setting up patsies as news-worthy terrorists! So, why was Benghazi claimed to be a spontaneous protest over a video? Perhaps to avoid the question of just why the terrorists attacked that particular target?

We already know that the consulate in Benghazi was a hub for running guns from Libya to ISIS and Al Qaeda in Syria, a fact the White House would not want the American people, told that ISIS and Al Qaeda were our enemies, to catch wind of!

But more recently, Paula Broadwell, former CIA Director David Petraeus' biographer/lover, has blown the lid off another secret buried inside the consulate in Benghazi; that it was one of the CIA's clandestine torture dungeons! This means that the attack on the consulate was a rescue mission, to free Libyans being tortured by the CIA. and that too is a secret the White House would not want the American people to catch wind of!

Broadwell: Benghazi attacks was aimed at illegal CIA prison

Thanks to Broadwell, there’s a new twist in the events surrounding the Sept. 11 attack on the US consulate in Libya that resulted in the deaths of the US ambassador and three other Americans.

On Oct. 26, Broadwell told an alumni symposium at the University of Denver that the CIA was running a prison at the consulate (the university has removed the video from YouTube).

‘I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back.

Finally revealed: What ambassador in Benghazi was really doing

The U.S. special mission in Benghazi and the nearby CIA annex were utilized in part to coordinate arms shipments to the jihadist rebels fighting the Syrian regime, with Ambassador Christopher Stevens playing a central role, documents an explosive new book released today.

The activities, which included a separate, unprecedented multi-million-dollar weapons collection effort from Libyan militias who did not want to give up their weapons, may have prompted the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, charges the new book.

FLASHBACK - Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.

But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.

The Man Who Bought the Clintons: the Political Business of Terry McAuliffe

In May 1999, the Labor Department brought suit against Jack Moore and John Grau, charging the two men with mismanaging the pension fund for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Moore was the longtime secretary of the union, while Grau was the vice-president of the National Electrical Contractor’s Association, which was partner in the fund. At issue was a series of sweetheart real estate deals in central Florida, which regulators labeled “imprudent”, and cost the fund money. Moore and Grau eventually settled the case for more than six figures. The union was forced to kick in another $5 million to cover the losses to the pension fund. The person at the center of the scandal, however, made out in the deal very well, indeed. His name: Terry McAuliffe, former head of the DNC, now governor of Virginia.

Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER) Sues the Bank of Canada. Canadians Fight to Restore their “National Public Bank”

In some ways, this was the Don Quixote of court cases: a small group of individuals, and a small economic think tank known as the Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform sued the Bank of Canada, a national entity under the juridsiction of the Crown, for abandoning its original mandate to be a public bank. Bank of Canada did this in 1974, and since then, has functioned largely as a middleman to funnel public money into the hands of international private banks, and to arrange loans from those private entities for the financing of Canadian needs. The money lost in interest (since B of C, functioning as a public bank, would have lent at low interest and subsequently collected the interest back itself) has been in excess of a trillion dollars.

Libya: From Africa’s Wealthiest Democracy Under Gaddafi to Terrorist Haven After US Intervention

In 1967 Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; by the time he was assassinated, he had transformed Libya into Africa’s richest nation. Prior to the US-led bombing campaign in 2011, Libya had the highest Human Development Index, the lowest infant mortality and the highest life expectancy in all of Africa.

Today, Libya is a failed state. Western military intervention has caused all of the worst-scenarios: Western embassies have all left, the South of the country has become a haven for ISIS terrorists, and the Northern coast a center of migrant trafficking. Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia have all closed their borders with Libya. This all occurs amidst a backdrop of widespread rape, assassinations and torture that complete the picture of a state that is failed to the bone.

Israel’s March of Madness. Towards an Ultra-nationalist, Racist, Religious Society.

Israeli democracy is sliding downwards. Sliding slowly, comfortably, but unmistakably.

Sliding where? Everybody knows that: towards an ultra-nationalist, racist, religious society.

Who is leading the ride?

Why, the government, of course, that group of noisy nobodies which came to power at the last elections, led by Binyamin Netanyahu.

Not really. Take all these big-mouthed little demagogues, the ministers of this or that (I can’t quite remember who is supposed to be minister for what) and shut them up somewhere, and nothing will change. In 10 years from now, nobody will remember the name of any of them.

… there is only one group in the country that is strong enough, cohesive enough, determined enough to take over the state: the settlers.

There Has Never Been an American “Middle Class”. The U.S. Working Class Has Always Been Poor

One of the most firmly entrenched myths of The American Ideology is that the U.S. is a “middle class society,” a “land of opportunity” where anyone who works hard has the opportunity to achieve the standard of living which has made America “the envy of the world.” A common, and spot on, rejoinder has been to remind us that America has always had a sizable class of permanently poor people and that it is just factually false that those ready, willing and able to work are on the path to middle class status.

But does this reply concede too much? Has there ever been a substantial middle class in America? Or has a poor working class been able to mask its condition by accessing an institution that has disguised a large portion of a poor working class as a middle class? The best place to start is with the history of the modern American middle class.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big lie of capitalism is that everyone can be rich. This is nonsense. If everyone were millionaires, who would take out the trash, repair the sewers, or bury the dead? Capitalism only works if there is a deliberately imposed wealth differential. The vast majority of people must be kept poor to keep them willing to work at the thousand distasteful jobs on which society depends. Politics is the process that decides who is and is not allowed to be rich, and inevitably selects those who understand that the mass of the population must be kept poor.

Ukraine's Cyber Mercenaries Attack Independent Media

The terms cyber war and infowar have been a constant in many articles written about the conflict in Ukraine. The problem with the terms is that the concepts are so new that definitions vary from an ignorant “troll” rant to a hacker that destroys the controls on a dam. The troll is an annoyance. The dam that burst that kills hundreds of people in their sleep is not. The military definition of a cyber attack revolves around real world injury, death, or damage.

54-year-old Palestinian dies from tear gas inhalation in Hebron

A 54-year-old Palestinian died on Wednesday from excessive tear gas inhalation during clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces in Hebron, medical sources said.

A doctor in Hebron's government hospital told Ma'an that the Palestinian, identified as Hashem al-Azzeh, had a previous history of cardiac disease.

Locals told Ma'an that he was a resident of the Tel Rumeida area of Hebron, and was at Bab al-Zawiya in central Hebron when he suffered excessive tear gas inhalation.

He was rushed to hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

He was not, in fact, "rushed" to the hospital, as vehicles, including ambulances, are not allowed into the neighborhood where Hashem al-Azzeh lived. He was carried by hand down to where the ambulance could pick him up, which is where he was exposed to the tear gas.

Benghazi Victims’ Family Members BLAST Clinton After Hearing

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Kate Quigley, the sister of CIA contractor Glen Doherty, recalled a meeting she and her family had with Clinton at Andrews Air Force Base three days after the terrorist attack in which the then-secretary of state said that the onslaught started as a spontaneous protest.

“She spoke to my family about how sad we should feel for the Libyan people because they’re uneducated, and that breeds fear which breeds violence and leads to a protest,” Quigley recalled.

But as was made clear in Thursday’s hearing, Clinton knew even before the attacks were finished that terrorists with links to al-Qaeda were involved. Clinton emailed her daughter Chelsea stating that terrorists were involved.

Rep. Jim Jordan vs. Hillary Clinton: Why Did You Tell Egyptians Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack But Not The American People?

At a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan introduced e-mails that show then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calling the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya terrorism to family and the Egyptian prime minister.

Jordan then questioned why she told Americans the Benghazi attack was a response to an infamous YouTube clip mocking Muslims but e-mailed it was a terrorist attack to the Egyptian prime minister and family.

"You can tell the Egyptian prime minister it’s a terrorist attack, but you can’t tell your own people," Jordan scolded Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, Hillary admitted to lying to the American people, and apparently thinks it is politically incorrect for us to notice it!

BEX ALERT - Eight reasons why Hillary Clinton won the Benghazi hearing

This has been the best week of the Clinton presidential campaign. After Hillary won the first debate, Joe Biden declared he would not challenge her on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember the swindle the corporate media pulled on that Democratic debate? All the online polls, including those of the Corporate media showed Hillary losing, but the corporate media yanked their polls, and put out stories of Hillary's "victory" to bamboozle the majority of Americans who had not watched the debate. Likewise, we are seeing the corporate media proclaim Hillary the "victor" in a hearing in which Hillary admitted responsibility for Benghazi, and worse, excused her failure by saying that she simply wasn't paying attention to all the memos being sent by Ambassador Stevens requesting increased security, hardly a sterling endorsement of her skills to be President! After all, it was her job to know what was going on, and in that she clearly failed (if you accept the official story of Benghazi).

Will the Benghazi hearing change anyone’s opinion?

In the poll, 44% of Americans say that they’re not satisfied with Clinton’s response to the Benghazi attack in 2012 – including 77% of Republican respondents, 40% of independents but just 14% of Democrats. In addition, 36% of Americans think the current congressional investigation into the Benghazi attacks is unfair and too partisan (that includes 53% of Democrats); 29% of Americans believe it’s fair and impartial (including 50% of Republicans); and another 35% don’t know enough. And regarding Clinton’s private email server, 47% say it will be an important factor in their upcoming vote, versus 44% who disagree. But once again, these numbers are divided by party: 76% of Republicans believe Clinton’s private server is important to their vote, while 70% of Democrats say it isn’t important.

CISA latest: Law urging tech giants to share your info with the Feds shows no sign of stopping

On Thursday morning the proposed Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) moved a step closer to reality when the US Senate voted 83 to 14 to end debate on a package of amendments.

The CISA legislation invites internet giants and other companies to quietly give people's private and personal information to the federal government so that it can be analyzed for evidence of criminal activity and hacking.

In return, the businesses get secret intelligence on cyber-attacks and security vulnerabilities, and immunity from lawsuits by customers peeved about their data being volunteered to Uncle Sam.

US Mulls No-Fly Zone In Syria

Major Brain Disorder!

This new deployment comes amid reports of a serious debate going on in the administration on a dramatic buildup of the war in Syria, aimed at spiting Russia for its own anti-ISIS war. Secretary of State John Kerry is said to be leading a push for a show of force, including declaring a “no fly zone” in northern Syria and attempting to block Russia from the area militarily.

WELCOME TO THE CIRCUS — HILLARY AND THE BENGHAZI COMMITTEE

The underlying story of Benghazi is one that cannot and will not be talked about in any open session of Congress. This means that Thursday’s hearing featuring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was nothing but an exercise in futility. It is the story of a covert CIA operation that was operating from a separate facility in the Benghazi compound that was simply known as the “Annex.” Some two dozen CIA case officers, analysts, translators and special staff were a part of this operation and its security was provided by CIA Global Response Staff (GRS), who had entered the countryunder diplomatic cover.
