SSRI Antidepressants Put Patients at Clear Risk of Suicide

Waking Times

It is now estimated that 1 in 8 Americans are on serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressants1 and a shocking 1 in 4 among women in their 40s and 50s. Yet the U.S. suicide rate of 38,000 a year has never been higher. Clearly the glut of SSRI prescriptions is not lowering the national suicide rate; rather there is compelling evidence that the popular pills are actually contributing to suicide.

While the world debates global warming, solar physicist warns of coming Ice Age

According to Professor Zharkova, sunspot activity is likely to fall – similarly to what took place during the Maunder Minimum or "The Little Ice Age." This will culminate in drastic drops in temperature and more winter-like conditions. Zharkova observed that solar activity had a significant influence on past climate trends.

During the "Little Ice Age" that lasted close to two centuries, sunspot activity was low, and temperatures plunged throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Winters were more pronounced, and the summers were unconvincing at best.

"We will see it from 2020 to 2053, when the three next cycles will be vert reduced magnetic field of the sun. Basically what happens is these two waves, they separate into the opposite hemispheres and they will not be interacting with each other, which means that resulting magnetic field will drop dramatically nearly to zero. And this will be a similar conditions like in Maunder Minimum," she said. [Sic]

CEO Tim Cook Decides Apple Doesn’t Have to Pay Corporate Tax Rate Because It’s “Unfair”

Here’s what Apple CEO Tim Cook had to say about it in a long interview published this weekend in the Washington Post:

We’ve said at 40 percent, we’re not going to bring it back until there’s a fair rate. There’s no debate about it. Is that legal to do or not legal to do? It is legal to do. It is the current tax law. It’s not a matter of being patriotic or not patriotic. It doesn’t go that the more you pay, the more patriotic you are.

Cook simultaneously wants us to know he is not a bad “traditional CEO” who just cares about money. No, to the contrary, he feels an “incredible responsibility” to “the communities and the countries that the company operates in” and “the whole ecosystem of the company.”

Therefore, because Cook cares so little about money and so much about communities, Apple won’t be paying its taxes. That’s just fair.

FBI Seeks Developer to Build an App to Help the Government Spy on Us

Are you an app developer? Are you covert as hell? Do you think we should all throw our privacy cautions to the wind? Boy, does the FBI have the job for you: design an app to help the government spy.

The Department of Justice posted a job opportunity last month to create something called a Smartphone-Based Audio Recorder. The technical requirements draft describes an app that would allow an FBI agent to "surreptitiously capture audio and video" on their smartphone. It describes two scenarios this piece of spy tech would be needed in — one is to collect live audio covertly (read: spy), and the other is to use the app as a recorder alternative to overtly record audio and video during an interview (read: not spy).

THE PEOPLE’S VETO TO OVERTURN GUNMAGEDDON – AND – DEFEAT PROPOSITION 63

Veto Gunmageddon is a group of volunteers dedicated to overturning the recent draconian gun laws passed by the California legislature and signed by Governor Jerry Brown. We are gun owners from all over California who watched with disbelief as the California Legislature bypassed normal procedure to pass strict and clearly unconstitutional gun laws.

We have come together and formed “VETO GUNMAGEDDON, CITIZENS OF CALIFORNIA WHO ARE OPPOSED TO PROPOSITION 63, ASSEMBLY BILLS 1135, 1511, 1695, 857 AND SENATE BILLS 880, 1235 AND 1446.??FPPC#1387279”.

We are 100% volunteer, and our primary focus is to exercise the people’s veto (a referendum) to put all 7 laws in front of the voters to decide, and hopefully overturn these unconstitutional laws.

Our goal is to have 7 referendum petitions signed by 365,000 registered voters by Sept 29th to get these referendums on the Nov 8th ballot.

All made up of folks like me and you. So make no mistake about it, when Hillary Clinton mentions fighting the gun lobby, she is talking about you.

14,000 ABANDONED WIND TURBINES LITTER THE UNITED STATES

The towering symbols of a fading religion, over 14,000 wind turbines, abandoned, rusting, slowly decaying. When it is time to clean up after a failed idea, no green environmentalists are to be found. Wind was free, natural, harnessing Earth’s bounty for the benefit of all mankind, sounded like a good idea. Wind turbines, like solar panels, break down. They produce less energy before they break down than the energy it took to make them. The wind does not blow all the time, or even most of the time. When it is not blowing, they require full-time backup from conventional power plants.

Without government subsidy, they are unaffordable. With governments facing financial troubles, the subsidies are unaffordable. It was a nice dream, a very expensive dream, but it didn’t work.

Open Letter Of Aleppo Doctors Is Easily Torn Apart – Bottom Of The Barrel Propaganda

By Brandon Turbeville

In 2016, we have become accustomed to relatively childish and easily deconstructed propaganda narratives that are circulated by the U.S. State Department and its mainstream media mouthpieces in order to discredit the Syrian government and drum up support for a NATO-led war on the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

From scares related to chemical weapons (later demonstrated to be the work of NATO’s terrorists), unproven and largely discredited claims that Assad is “killing his own people” or even that Assad is “supporting ISIS” has become the order of the day in American media. Recently, however, the State Department, office of origin of the “Ghaddafi is handing out Viagra to rapists” propaganda line, has issued yet another pathetic propaganda ploy against the Syrian government – an alleged letter written by alleged doctors alleging that the Syrian military is encircling Aleppo in order to allegedly kill civilians.

US DEFENSE FIRMS PROFIT BY SAUDI ARABIA’S SLAUGHTER OF YEMEN

It is not secret that Saudi Arabia has been carrying out ghastly war crimes on the people of Yemen using US weapons and support. Despite the US’ endless (and largely hypocritical) complaining about civilian deaths in Syria, the Saudis have deployed unprecedented violence on civilians in Yemen with no audible opposition from the US. One of the US weapons making an appearance in Yemen are widely banned cluster bombs, specifically the CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon from Textron Systems of Wilmington, Massachusetts. The bombs are not only lethal upon initial use but often the parts of the bomb do not explode as planned and spontaneously detonate later or by accident when scavengers stumble upon them while looking for scrap metal.

Escalation, Naval Deployments and Geopolitical Conflict in the South China Sea

The weeks immediately following the PCA ruling at The Hague, regarding the arbitration brought forth by the Philippines against China, have been marked by an increasing escalation of both the South China Sea Crisis and the territorial dispute between China and Japan in the East China Sea. The broader crisis has even effected the Koreas and Japan in terms of their greater strategic defense posture. It is interesting to note that all parties involved, with the exception of the Philippines, have taken steps to escalate the crisis and increase tensions in the region. The Republic of the Philippines, perhaps the least belligerent of all nations involved in territorial disputes in the South China Sea, has acted to deescalate the situation, even reaching out to Chinese officials to negotiate a bilateral agreement that would help resolve the issues involved. This is doubly surprising given the inflammatory reputation of the new President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the moment, my bet would be on "a matter of weeks", from the time the G-20 concludes in China in early September, if there are no sideline meetings to ratchet down the tensions.

I hope to heck I am wrong, but with the US war hawks desperate for a military confrontation against China (which the US military may well not be able to win), coupled with a desire to smack down the Chinese currency, and a potential Trump landslide win in November.

China Sides With Russia In Syrian War, Will Provide "Aid And Military Training" To Assad

Ever since the return of the Syrian war in 2015, which has seen both US alliance forces and as - of last - September, Russian forces too, jousting for political influence in the region under the guise of fighting ISIS while in reality either seeking to oust or preserve the Assad regime, one major player was missing: China.

That is about to change as the last major superpower enters the world's most volatile - and dangerous - region.

Beijing and Damascus have agreed that the Chinese military will have closer ties with Syria, and provide humanitarian aid to the civil war torn nation, a high-ranking People's Liberation Army officer said, adding that the training of Syrian personnel by Chinese instructors has also been discussed, according to Xinhua.

Russia’s “Permanent Military Base” in Syria: Moscow just tipped the Balance of Power in the Mediterranean

Though there has been remarkably little discussion of the subject in the Western media, Russia last week quietly acquired for the first time in its modern history a proper permanent base in the Mediterranean.

Following negotiations between the Syrian government and Russia an agreement dating to 2015 has now been ratified by Russia turning the Russian air base at Khmeimim in Syria into a permanent base. In other words Russia will retain the base at Khmeimim beyond the conclusion of the Syrian conflict, and its presence there has just been made permanent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this is made permanent, this base is a true game-changer in the Middle East.

BEX ALERT - Robert Steele: Has Trump Accepted A $20B Bribe From Lynn Rothschild To Throw The Election?

One school of thought — the one favored by the smart connected money — is that Lynn Rothschild has made Trump an offer he could not refuse: $20B to disrupt the GOP nomination process and if nominated, to throw the race by any means necessary so that Hillary Clinton can be crowned “Her Royal Highness” as Maureen Down has so elegantly hinted in her recent New York Times article, The Perfect G.O.P. Nominee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember the claim that Trump was about to drop out? It was a hoax to discourage his supporters. The same with the recent claims that Hillary is ahead on the polls by double digits.

This is just more of the same; a Nixonian dirty trick by a politician who learned at the feet of the master.

US Nuclear Weapons At Risk of Seizure in Turkey

Dozens of US nuclear weapons stored at a Turkish air base near Syria are at risk of being captured by “terrorists or other hostile forces”, a Washington think tank said on Monday.

The US has an estimated 50 nuclear bombs at Incirlik in southern Turkey, 110km from the border with Syria.
The base’s Turkish commander was arrested on suspicion of complicity in last month’s coup plot.

“Whether the US could have maintained control of the weapons in the event of a protracted civil conflict in Turkey is an unanswerable question,” said Monday’s report from the Stimson Center, a nonpartisan think tank working to promote peace.

Incirlik is a vital base for the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq and Syria, giving drones and warplanes fast access to IS targets.

“From a security point of view, it’s a roll of the dice to continue to have approximately 50 of America’s nuclear weapons stationed at Incirlik,” report co-author Laicie Heeley said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And hey, it wouldn't even have to be a coup ultimately commandeering these weapons; it could well be the Turkish government itself!!

With such an improvement in Turkish/Russian relations in the last week, who knows?!? Turkey may well pivot to Russia, declare itself a BRICs nation, and tell NATO to just vanish, permanently.

America’s Biggest Ally Now Has Special “Thought Police” Unit to Track Down Online Trolls

Thought police now patrol social media platforms and online forums to quash putatively ‘abusive’ vitriol with the help of feckless civilians urged to end freedom of speech under the guise of rooting out hate.

Expected to run for two years at a cost of $2.2 million (£1.7 million) — of which the Home Office will contribute $581,000 (£450,000) — the London Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) believes severely curtailing free speech is necessary due to “the increasing role that online hate played in targeting individuals and communities.”...

Israel decides no criminal charges for police who seized Palestinian girl's bicycle

One of the officers was suspended from the force after the incident late last month, documented by a B'tselem video camera. The footage showed two border policemen chasing a Palestinian girl, eight-year-old Anwar Burqan, of Hebron's al-Ibrahimi Street, as she rode a bicycle.

It showed one of the officers picking up the bicycle and tossing it into the bushes.

Large swaths of al-Ibrahimi St. are closed to Palestinian traffic. In their defense, the officers told investigators the girl's bicycle was confiscated because she was riding in a part of the street closed to Palestinians and they wanted to protect her.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: these officers wanted to "protect" this 8 year old child....by throwing away and ruining her bicycle?!?

WOW, it really takes MANLY MEN to do that.

Israel lays groundwork for possible settlement expansion southeast of Jerusalem

srael is conducting a land survey between the settlement of Efrat and the area to its east with an eye toward declaring state land there, according to a document submitted by the state to the High Court of Justice last week.

According to the document, the survey has been undertaken “in a manner that will create contiguity of state lands.” Efrat is in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc in the southern West Bank, and the area to its east is known as Givat Eitam.

Construction in the area could have diplomatic implications because it would expand Gush Etzion east to the outskirts of Bethlehem.

In 2009, 1,700 dunams (425 acres) of land in the Efrat region were declared state land. Haaretz reported on a plan at the time to build some 2,500 housing units there.

Peace Now then petitioned the High Court to force the state to make public any intention to move ahead with construction plans in the area by allocating land rights to Efrat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this Israeli settlement development here effectively blocks off any contiguous boundary for a potential Palestinian state.

DOCUMENTS CONFIRM CIA CENSORSHIP OF GUANTÁNAMO TRIALS

IN JANUARY 2013, during the military trial of five men accused of plotting the 9/11 attacks, a defense lawyer was discussing a motion relating to the CIA’s black-site program, when a mysterious entity cut the audio feed to the gallery. A red light began to glow and spin. Someone had triggered the courtroom’s censorship system.

The system was believed to be under the control of the judge, Col. James Pohl. In this case, it wasn’t.

Later, Pohl said the censorship was the work of an “OCA,” short for “Original Classification Authority.” In the future, he said, no external body would be permitted to unilaterally censor what was happening in his courtroom.

Many have speculated that Pohl’s “OCA” is in fact the CIA. That speculation is now confirmed with the release of three new documents by The Intercept. The documents show the evolution of secret rules governing what is and is not allowed to be discussed before the military court at Guantánamo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of heaven is the US military torturing when they know that the tortured person will say anything his torturers want him to say to get the torture to stop?!?

Because this wasn't about what the tortured had done or not done; it was about eliciting confessions with which to justify the continued use torture.

I would like to politely remind our military and civilian leadership that when we, as a country, torture, or outsource torture, we demonstrate to the world that Americans are complete, abysmal hypocrites when it comes human rights, democracy, and the moral treatment of prisoners of war.

And I would also like to politely remind our military and civilian leadership that when we, as a country, torture, or outsource torture, this gives carte blanche for foreign countries which really don't like the American government that much, to torture our civilian and military personnel.

Please do take a moment to reflect on that, won't you?!?

18 U.S. Code § 793 - Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information

Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is where FBI Director James Comey lied to the American people when he said he would not recommend charges because he did not find evidence that Hillary intended to do wrong. Comey dismissed Hillary's actions as reckless, careless, and negligent, but as 18 U.S. Code § 793 states, intent to do harm is not required, and exposure of national secrets through negligence is a crime, punishable by ten years in prison.

U.N. Peacekeepers, U.S. Embassy Stand Down As American Aid Workers Beaten, Raped In Sudan

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The soldier pointed his AK-47 at the female aid worker and gave her a choice.

“Either you have sex with me, or we make every man here rape you and then we shoot you in the head,” she remembers him saying.

She didn’t really have a choice. By the end of the evening, she had been raped by 15 South Sudanese soldiers.

On July 11, South Sudanese troops, fresh from winning a battle in the capital, Juba, over opposition forces, went on a nearly four-hour rampage through a residential compound popular with foreigners, in one of the worst targeted attacks on aid workers in South Sudan’s three-year civil war. They shot dead a local journalist while forcing the foreigners to watch, raped several foreign women, singled out Americans, beat and robbed people and carried out mock executions, several witnesses told The Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell is wrong with UN personnel if they cannot protect people from these atrocities?!?

OR DO THEY EVEN CARE?!?

Dr. Ban Ki Moon gets wined and dined all over the planet, at various fetes, but when it comes to enforcing the effectiveness of UN forces under these circumstances, he is absolutely, utterly useless, and should be immediately sacked.

Unless, and until, the UN gets a Secretary General who is willing to put his discipline and energy where his mouth is, incidents like this will just keep occurring.

Putin deploys Russia’s most advanced air-defence missiles in Crimea as alarm grows war is imminent

The European Union said there was no independent confirmation of claims that Ukrainian agents had killed two Russian servicemen in Crimea. Putin pledged a “very serious” response as he blamed Kiev for pursuing “terror” activities. The 28-member bloc called on both sides to refrain from intensifying what has led to the worst diplomatic standoff between the two countries since a 2015 truce eased hostilities in Ukraine’s separatist conflict. Germany said that Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier will meet his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, next week in Russia.

“We reiterate our condemnation and non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea,” European Commission spokesman Alexandre Polack said in Brussels on Friday. “There has been neither concrete evidence provided by Russia sustaining its claim nor any independent confirmation of the claims made by Russian authorities.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the EU, as evidenced by the statement by their spokesperson, Polack, is still pursuing the narrative that somehow, Russia "annexed" Crimea.

This absolutely did not happen.

In 2014 when Yanukovich got thrown under the proverbial bus by the US, the EU, and NATO, and Poroshenko got "anointed" to the position of President, the Crimean people understood, without question, that there was no longer any legitimate government in Kiev.

Then, Crimea had a free and fair referendum, asking the Crimean people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or ask to become a part of the Russian Federation; they overwhelmingly voted to accept the latter. The referendum was presented to the Russian Federation, which accepted Crimea as a member at that time.

THIS List Of Federal Laws That Hillary Clinton Has Directly Violated Is Reprehensible

“So many laws and so little time”, may in fact be what Hillary’s many lawyers are thinking, as the FBI continues it’s investigation and probes further into how may federal and perhaps state laws this woman has actually broken.

“The case is getting so strong now that it’s going to be really hard to have an intellectually honest decision and walk away from it,” claimed a former federal prosecutor being interviewed on Hannity. He continued “she has also proven that she is completely grossly negligent in the handling of sensitive information, and we want someone like this for President of the United States?”

Former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani now estimates that Clinton has run afoul of 13-15 federal statutes. The list potentially includes the improper transmission and handling of confidential information, mail fraud statutes, wire fraud statutes, and obstruction of justice.

Here’s a quick list of the most serious charges that Clinton faces;

Warnings of 'Destructive' War as China Challenges US Military Might

A future war between China and the US would be "intense, destructive, and protracted", US President Barack Obama's former chief intelligence adviser warned US policy makers on Monday (August 15). David Gompert sent the warning in a Rand Corporation report commissioned by the US Army.

"War between the United States and China could be so ruinous for both countries, for East Asia, and for the world that it might seem unthinkable…The United States can no longer be so certain that war would follow its plan and lead to decisive victory," Mr Gompert wrote.

Looking ahead, the report predicts that with the possibility that China's economy may overtake the US' by 2025, and with Chinese technological advances, the military gap between the US and China is set to narrow.

"Even then, however, China could not be confident of gaining military advantage, which suggests the possibility of a prolonged and destructive, yet inconclusive, war."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if that 2025 date, by which China is supposed to achieve financial parity with the US, is part of the push to have such war sooner rather than later, and push down the value of the Chinese currency.

Also, if DNC and the White House presidential polls indicate that Trump will win in a landslide in November, this Administration is not above "gifting" Trump with one or two wars before he even takes the oath of office, to create the worst possible scenarios with which he will have to deal as President.

Mexico's New Auto Plants Unable To Find Enough Labor... As Detroit Still Suffers Massive Unemployment

North American auto OEMs and their tier 2 suppliers have been in a race to move auto production across borders to low-cost countries (LCCs) for the past couple of decades as soaring wages, pension and OPEB obligations made production in the U.S. all but impossible. Supporters of minimum wage hikes could learn from the efforts of the United Auto Workers Union which did a masterful job negotiating off-market wage and benefits packages which ultimately only served to provide their members with permanent job losses.

Turkey Threatens To Reopen The Refugee Floodgates To Europe

Even if you’ve only been paying a superficial amount of attention to the European refugee crisis, you’ll be aware of the fact that earlier this year the EU and Turkey agreed to a deal on migrants where in exchange for concessions, Turkey would stem the flow of migrants from its shores. The deal went through and refugee levels from Turkey fell dramatically.

Unfortunately, one major problem with the deal is Turkey’s demand for visa-free travel, something many throughout the EU were intensely against from the beginning, and are even more opposed to now following the Turkish government’s authoritarian crackdown on tens of thousands of its own citizens following last month’s failed coup.

Obamacare Sticker Shock: Average 2017 Premium Surges 24%

Now, courtesy of a new study by independent analyst Charles Gaba - who has crunched the numbers for insurers participating in the ACA exchanges in all 50 states - we can also calculate what the average Obamacare premium increase across the entire US will be: using proposed and approved rate increase requests, the average Obamacare premium is expected to surge by a whopping 24% this year.

THIS IS HOW PRIVATE PRISON COMPANIES MAKE MILLIONS EVEN WHEN CRIME RATES FALL

Occupancy requirements, as it turns out, are common practice within the private prison industry. A new report by In the Public Interest, an anti-privatization group, reviewed 62 contracts for private prisons operating around the country at the local and state level. In the Public Interest found that 41 of those contracts included occupancy requirements mandating that local or state government keep those facilities between 80 and 100 percent full. In other words, whether crime is rising or falling, the state must keep those beds full. (The report was funded by grants from the Open Society Institute and Public Welfare, according to a spokesman.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Private prisons have had a history of betting on political candidates financially to ultimately fatten their own coffers.

IF you have not seen it, please watch Michael Moore's "Who Do We invade Next?!?", even if you are not a fan of his work.

There is one segment where he goes to a men's prison in Norway; and what he discovers is nothing less than amazing. These people are treated kindly, and as though they have a future which is not criminal. Their environments are clean and comfortable. As reported at businessinsider.com in December of 2014:

In Norway, fewer than 4,000 of the country's 5 million people were behind bars as of August 2014. That makes Norway's incarceration rate just 75 per 100,000 people, compared to 707 people for every 100,000 people in the US. On top of that, when criminals in Norway leave prison, they stay out. It has one of the lowest recidivism rates in the world at 20%. The US has one of the highest: 76.6% of prisoners are re-arrested within five years. Norway also has a relatively low level of crime compared to the US, according to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. The majority of crimes reported to police there are theft-related incidents, and violent crime is mostly confined to areas with drug trafficking and gang problems. Based on that information, it's safe to assume Norway's criminal justice system is doing something right. Few citizens there go to prison, and those who do usually go only once. So how does Norway accomplish this feat? The country relies on a concept called "restorative justice," which aims to repair the harm caused by crime rather than punish people. This system focuses on rehabilitating prisoners.

The us penal system is stupid, brutish, and counterproductive in the extreme, and it is engineered to be so, in order to hold on to it's huge budgets; the private prison system is even more so, because recidivism translates into more bucks for shareholders.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

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

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

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

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

EXCLUSIVE – Benghazi Victims’ Lawyer: Hillary Clinton Is ‘Totally Exposed’

Part of the lawsuit charges that Clinton defamed the victims’ families and was responsible for “intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress” by “directly brand[ing] Plaintiffs as liars.” She did so, the complaint alleges, when she contradicted the families over allegations that the Benghazi attacks were the result of a terrorist onslaught and not a protest over an anti-Muhammad video.

Regarding that section of the lawsuit, Klayman stated on the radio Sunday:

She has no immunity. Some people have said without looking at the law that there is immunity or there is not. When you violate criminal statutes, Aaron, and as you know, which she did. And Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York, former deputy attorney-general, and myself and others have pointed out the statutes that she violated. Even the FBI director admitted, although he didn’t have the guts to recommend prosecution, you lose your immunity. There are Supreme Court cases on that.

– Hillary’s staff is so intent on keeping reporters away from Clinton because she is at risk of petit mal seizures that can be triggered by camera flashes;

SOROS HACK EXPOSES PLOT BEHIND REFUGEE CRISIS, HIS MEDIA CONTROL, CASH FOR “SOCIAL JUSTICE”

Leaked files from billionaire globalist George Soros’ Open Society Foundation two days ago have exposed several startling machinations about the organization — including flagrant schemes to manipulate the media, influence international immigration policy, and cash designated for social justice initiatives.

Soros has been outed previously for pulling political strings in Ukraine, but as one memo revealed in the massive DCLeaks cache shows, the globalist also sought direct manipulation of Western media to align with that political agenda.

Titled the “Ukraine Media Project,” the memo’s authors admit that “this isn’t proper independent journalism and we may damage our credibility with journalists,” but that “journalists may produce stories that have no relevance for the narrative we seek to inform or stories that are counterproductive (enforcing narratives of fascism, etc.)”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this man's actions?!?

And OSF labeling the immigration crisis as "the new normal"?!?

You see, it is never the" new normal" for those behind gates, walls, and brigades of security personnel; the monied are, of course, completely insulated from the chaos this brings.

It is only supposed to be "the new normal" for the rest of the people who have to put up with it, including the ancillary crime, gangs, and drugs which come with this crisis.

OF COURSE, the US could stop the wars which have generated this immigration chaos; but that...would be logical.

The Mysteriously Obtuse Case Of The Missing Fukushima Fuel

By Richard Wilcox, PhD

“Nature knows no indecencies; man invents them.” – Mark Twain

As the world forever hurtles toward Armageddon, the Fukushima nuclear disaster has largely faded from the front pages. But the issue is far from resolved. Radiation from nuclear accidents is not easily dispelled with estimates of clean-up time at Fukushima ranging from 40 to 500 years, and nearly six years have already passed. Even safely stored nuclear material is dangerous for 100,000 years.

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE: ‘STOP TRYING TO FIX THE POLICE, FIX THE GHETTO’

“People have to find a more socially acceptable way to deal with their frustration, their anger and resentment,” Sheriff Clarke said, adding the “war on police” mentality was a “political construct” that had been implemented by the left for a political end.

“Same thing, same model, same subversive groups involved with different names now, different generation of course – as all those folks and the students for a Democratic society got old,” Clarke said.

Here are a few excerpts from Sheriff Clarke’s insightful press conference:

“Police use of force serves as an igniter — there’s no doubt — but to an already volatile mix of urban pathologies, failed urban policy that exacerbates inescapable poverty, failing public schools, inadequate parenting. Father-absent homes — we all know when fathers are not around to shape the behavior of young boys, they often times grow up to be unmanageable misfits that police have to deal with in an aggressive fashion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In listening and watching the people who were rioting, I had to shake my head, and ask, "Where were the parents of these people while they were growing up?!?

Did they not understand that without the ability to speak and write a standard English, that their kids were doomed to never find decent, well paying jobs?!?

And what about the abject failure of their school system?!? Every school administrator and teacher in that district of Milwaukee should be immediately canned, the teacher's union (if it exists) be scrapped in favor of a teachers who can really teach, using a performance-based curriculum which measures a teacher's worth to the district by the level of comprehension of material presented, but not "teaching to the test", which has been enshrined by Common Core.

With love and structure, kids can - and will - learn.

Remember the great film, "Stand and Deliver"?!?

This was based on a true story, where a math teacher in East LA was tired of being told that his kids "couldn't really do math", and had them compete at such a high level that the district accused him of "cheating" to get scores as high as those kids did.

When they were re-tested, with monitors in their room, they tested just as high - if not higher - than they did the first timed.

Milwaukee needs an ARMY of teachers like this, who get well compensated for what they do.

The Mainstream Media Has Become A Criminal Accomplice To Naked Campaign Fraud And Election Theft

What the American people are now witnessing during this presidential election cycle has always gone on.

However, what the 2016 presidential election cycle has brought the USA is a gross exaggeration of this quadrennial scandalous phenomenon.

Instead, in a reverse twist on a program intended to bring talented outsiders into government, Abedin was immediately rehired as a “special government employee.” She also took paying jobs with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm with international clients that was co-founded by a foundation official who also was Bill Clinton’s long-time personal aide.

PARENTS WHO CAN'T PAY THE BILL FOR KIDS' INCARCERATION CAN STILL GO BANKRUPT, A US COURT RULES

When Maria Rivera got a bill from Orange County for her young son's year in juvenile detention, she sold her house to pay for it, but ended up short, and the county got a court order for another $10K to pay the remainder and various fees and penalties.

When Rivera declared bankruptcy, the county refused to let up, arguing that the law that prevents parents from escaping their child-support duties in bankruptcy applied to parents who'd been dinged for their kids' jail time. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the county, saying that this was bullshit, and letting Rivera get on with her life.

The court wrote that the case was "troubling" because it "compromise[s] the goals of juvenile correction and the best interests of the child, and, ironically, impair the ability of his mother to provide him with future support."

THIS IS HOW PRIVATE PRISON COMPANIES MAKE MILLIONS EVEN WHEN CRIME RATES FALL

We are living in boom times for the private prison industry. The Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the nation’s largest owner of private prisons, has seen its revenue climb by more than 500 percent in the last two decades. And CCA wants to get much, much bigger: Last year, the company made an offer to 48 governors to buy and operate their state-funded prisons. But what made CCA’s pitch to those governors so audacious and shocking was that it included a so-called occupancy requirement, a clause demanding the state keep those newly privatized prisons at least 90 percent full at all times, regardless of whether crime was rising or falling.

Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) introduced Senate Bill 443 (SB443) last year. The legislation sets additional restrictions on the state to prevent abuses from civil asset forfeiture, a controversial practice that observers such as the Institute for Justice (IJ) have called “legal plunder.”...

Hillary: what drugs is she on?

Meanwhile, if Hillary has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, there are drugs that are routinely prescribed, and their adverse effects should be noted.

For example, the drug L-dopa. Here, from WebMD, are several side effects that would raise serious questions: aggressive behavior; altered mental status; blood pressure drop upon standing; depression; mood changes; anxiety; confusion.

Another popular Parkinson’s drug is Sinemet. RX List mentions these adverse effects: lightheadedness; mental/mood changes; agitation; hallucinations; depression; thoughts of suicide.

With either drug, resulting depression could be treated with an SSRI antidepressant, such as Paxil. That drug also has adverse effects.

Among the side effects of Paxil listed by Drugs.com: weakness; dizziness; blurred vision; visual disturbance; lack of concentration; anxiety; confusion.
