Garland was 'man to see' in Oklahoma City bomb inquiry

Merrick Garland’s formal manner, McGuire recalled, immediately identified him “as a Washington guy,’’ who was then-Attorney General Janet Reno’s personal representative in Oklahoma City.

“He didn’t look like a trial lawyer; he wasn’t a street fighter. But he was the man to see,'' said McGuire, whose client eventually pleaded guilty to withholding advance knowledge of the bombing. He was released from federal prison in 2006, after serving a little more than 10 years.

Indeed, Garland, President Obama’s nominee to succeed Antonin Scalia, has long distinguished himself as more steady workhorse than show horse in the trenches of the Justice Department prior to his elevation to the federal bench.

Anti-Donald Trump protesters block Ariz. road, chain themselves to stalled cars to keep candidate away from rally

Anti-Donald Trump protesters blocked an Arizona highway and created a traffic nightmare in an attempt to keep the GOP frontrunner and his supporters from attending a Saturday rally in Fountain Hills.

The Trump haters parked their cars in the middle of the three-lane road that leads to Fountain Park — where the candidate was scheduled to speak at 2 p.m. EST — and some protesters even chained themselves to their vehicles to slow down cops’ efforts to clear the blockade.

Will This Trigger World War III? US Army Stockpiles Munitions Near China

US Army announces plans to place munitions stockpiles in Vietnam, Cambodia, and other area countries in a bid to contain the regional expansion of Chinese influence.

On Wednesday, the US Army announced that it plans to stockpile munitions and military supplies in Vietnam, Cambodia, and several other undisclosed nations including, experts believe, the Philippines, as the US adopts an increasingly aggressive military posture toward China.

US officials state that the munitions caches, placed within areas China considers to be within its "sphere of influence," are necessary to respond to regional "threats" by Russia and North Korea, and allow for more rapid deployment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Just because something is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly wrong thing the US government and military could possibly do, is absolutely no guarantee that they won't do it, the placement of these munitions caches being a sterling case in point.

Illinois College Will Stop Arresting Students For Passing Out Constitution

An Illinois college has reversed its position and will allow students to pass out copies of the U.S Constitution on campus.

It’s a good move, since the Alliance Defending Freedom threatened to sue them if they didn’t.

Under the old policies, students were threatened with arrest if they passed out the founding documents on the campus of the College of DuPage.

The exchange between a police officer and student Joseph Enders, captured on video, shows the officer telling Enders that, under campus policies, he needs a permit to offer the Constitution to passing students.

Caught On Tape: Turkey Shoots At Kurds Waving White Flag In Cizre

Today’s bombing of Istiklal Caddesi was just the latest tragedy to strike one of Turkey’s urban centers. Images from the aftermath of the blast are, much like those that appeared on social media in the wake of last Sunday’s TAK attack on a transit hub in Ankara’s Kizilay, horrific.

It’s important that the world consider why this is happening. Whether these are false flags or actual PKK/TAK attacks is irrelevant. The critical thing to understand is that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is allegedly committing genocide against the country’s Kurdish population. Does that excuse suicide attacks staged by Kurdish militants? Obviously not, but what’s happening in the country’s Kurdish southeast is appalling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This genocide against the Kurds is NOT making the Turkish people more safe; in fact, it is having the polar opposite effect.

America’s disturbing voter-turnout crisis: How inequality extends to polling place — and why that makes our country less fair

Automatic voter registration isn’t the sexiest way to start a political revolution, but it may be the most effective. The United States lags behind the rest of the rich world in turnout, but it leads the rich world in disparity in turnout across income and education levels, which has profound effects on policy. This so-called “turnout skew” further biases policy towards the rich, even more than it already would be because of the structural advantages the rich enjoy. Bolstering turnout could lead to a self-reinforcing feedback loop in the opposite direction.

US, Philippines agree on locations covered by defense pact

The U.S. and the Philippines announced Friday five locations where American forces will have access under a new defense pact, including one facing disputed islands in the South China Sea.

The announcement came at strategic talks in Washington, where the allies reiterated their opposition to the militarization of outposts in those waters, where six Asian governments have competing claims.

China has built artificial islands with airstrips and military facilities as it asserts its claim to virtually all the South China Sea, including land features claimed by the Philippines.

Another of the five Philippine military bases where the U.S. will have access is on southern Mindanao island, where the U.S. is concerned about the presence of Muslim extremist groups.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, taken together with a soon-expanded US military presence in Australia, will give the US military a reasonably strong "footprint" against China.

But unfortunately, it will do nothing to ratchet down trade, or military, tensions with China at all; but of course, that appears to be the plan; to goad China into a position where its leadership believes there is no other recourse than a military response to the US military's "playing chicken" in the South China Sea.

The U.S. Government Is Still Fighting to Bury the Senate Torture Report

Government lawyers on Thursday continued their fight to bury the Senate Torture Report, arguing before the D.C. District Court of Appeals that the 6,700-page text could not be released on procedural grounds.

When the 500-page executive summary of the report was released more than a year ago, it prompted international outcry and renewed calls for prosecution. The summary describes not only the CIA’s rape and torture of detainees, but also how the agency consistently misrepresented the brutality and effectiveness of the torture program.

But many of the most graphic details are in Volume III of the full report, which former Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein has said contains “excruciating” details on “each of the 119 known individuals who were held in CIA custody.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This report should be released, and immediately.

Americans deserve to know what the CIA has done with their tax dollars, and in their names.

U.N. says Saudi-led bombing of Yemen market may be international crime

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen may be responsible for "international crimes", a category that includes war crimes and crimes against humanity, the top U.N. human rights official said on Friday.

Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, condemned an air strike in Yemen this week and added that the coalition was "responsible for twice as many civilian casualties as all other forces put together".

More than 6,000 people have been killed since the coalition campaign began a year ago to fight Iranian-allied Houthis and forces loyal to ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh and to restore the president they ousted, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

Tuesday's strike near Mustaba in northwest Yemen hit an outdoor market and killed more than 100, a provincial health director and a U.N. official in Sanaa said, making it one of the deadliest attacks in the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has enabled this indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, to bring Al-Hadi back to power in Yemen; the US government can stop it.

But BOTH the US government and the Saudi government have much to answer for, in terms of these war crimes against civilians.

Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States; The meaning of "Natural Born."

Raphael & Eleanor Cruz emigrated to Canada sometime in the early 1960s and in 1968 Mr. Cruz became a naturalized Canadian Citizen. It appears that Eleanor by virtue of her marriage also attained Citizenship one year later and Raphael Eduardo (Ted) Cruz was born December 22, 1970, to two parents who had lived in Canada, and had applied for and received Canadian citizenship under Canadian Immigration and Naturalization Laws. U.S. statutes would have voided the prior ?green card? status which requires among other things, permanent residency within the United States and obviously, not becoming a citizen of another country during the time frame of the U.S. green card. In 1970, Canada did not recognize the concept of dual citizen. Hence Cruz is Canadian by birth, ONLY Canadian by birth, despite his parents' lineage!

But in a report published Thursday, Americans for Tax Fairness say the New York-based pharma giant will actually save much more by giving up its U.S. citizenship: $35 billion.

Europe is closer to using nuclear weapons than at any time since the end of the Cold War, warns former Russian foreign minister

The threat of nuclear war has been brought much closer thanks to the stand-off in Ukraine warns a former Russian foreign minister.

Igor Ivanov, who served from 1998 to 2004 and now leads a government backed think-tank, said on Saturday: 'The risk of confrontation with the use of nuclear weapons in Europe is higher than in the 1980s.'

He said the East versus West altercation over the Ukraine crisis has meant the risk of nuclear warfare is growing despite countries cutting their arsenals.

Speaking at an event in Brussels with the foreign ministers of Ukraine and Poland, Mr Ivanov said: 'We have less nuclear warheads, but the risk of them being used is growing.'

Emmerson is a leading British lawyer, deputy High Court Judge, and British judge on the Residual Mechanism of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

Just Google it: Anyone could have 'hacked' and doxxed Trump like Anonymous

While some are impressed by the activities of Anonymous, others are not blown away. The BBC decided to see how easy it was to obtain the same information about Donald Trump as Anonymous, and found that it was child's play. It was so simple, in fact, that there was no need to even do any digging for his cell phone number, as Trump had already shared it with everyone on Twitter -- although it's hard to imagine there isn't another number in use by now.

Information such as the contact details for Trump's 'secret' business HQ is readily available on The Trump Organization website -- little more than a Google search for 'Trump' takes you there. Trump's date of birth? Look no further than his Wikipedia page for this info. Ditto details about his kids, place of birth and parents.

The BBC takes great delight in knocking Anonymous down a peg or two by pointing out the ease with which Anonymous' info can be obtained.

Miss. lawmaker callously dismisses woman asking about corporate tax cut because she’s ‘not a native’

Republican state lawmaker from Mississippi rebuffed a constituent asking about a measure that would eliminate the state corporate franchise tax, WDAM-TV reported on Friday.

“The people of our Great State overwhelmingly share my same or similar views on Government responsibility. I appreciate you going to the trouble to share yours with me, but quite frankly, and with all due respect, I could care less,” Rep. Karl Oliver said in his email to Becky Guidry.

Guidry contacted Oliver regarding Senate Bill 2858, which would also include some income tax cuts. According to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, the measure — which already passed in the state Senate — would implement $575 million in tax cuts over the next 15 years.

Webmaster's Commentary:

PR firm accused of helping Saudi Arabia 'whitewash' its human rights record

One of the world’s largest advertising agencies has been accused of helping Saudi Arabia “whitewash” its record on human rights following the kingdom’s largest mass execution for more than 30 years.

A US subsidiary of Publicis Groupe, the French media conglomerate that owns UK brands such as Saatchi & Saatchi, distributed an article in which the kingdom’s foreign minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir implicitly attempted to justify the execution of 47 people.

A number of political protesters and at least four juveniles are believed to have been among those killed in January. Human rights groups are increasingly worried that three more juveniles – including Ali al-Nimr, who was sentenced to death aged 17 for taking part in a pro-democracy protest – are due to be executed imminently.

Saudi Arabia issues extraordinary speech defending human rights record

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to remember that for the house of Saud, and the Saudi government, the whole concept of democracy is an anathema, and supporting it is a "terroristic act."

And I am reasonably certain that the Chairs on the board of this advertising agency would have had their consciences surgically removed, in order to earn what had to be a sizable fee, for attempting to defending the indefensible.

Too bad, folks;because anyone who knows anything about how the Saudi government and royalty operate were lining bird cages with this article, because it had absolutely zero basis in fact.

Naomi Klein: 'I Don't Trust' Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders 'Is a Significantly Better Candidate'

Canadian author and journalist Naomi Klein has weighed in on the United States presidential contest, criticising frontrunner Hillary Clinton and voicing her support for rival Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic nomination.

In an interview with Al Jazeera's UpFront programme, which will air on Friday night, Klein took issue with Clinton's efforts to combat climate change.

The author of the best-selling books No Logo and This Changes Everything told host Mehdi Hasan that she does not trust the former secretary of state.

"I don't trust her because as secretary of state, when she had a huge megaphone to make this an issue, to show that she understands the connections between human security and climate, she didn't use the megaphone," Klein said.

She also criticised Clinton's links to major donors, saying her ties to corporations made her hard to elect.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DENIED OR CENSORED INFORMATION IN 77% OF FOIA REQUESTS DURING 2015

The Obama administration set a record for the number of times its federal employees told disappointed citizens, journalists and others that despite searching they couldn’t find a single page requested under the Freedom of Information Act, according to a new Associated Press analysis of government data.

In more than one in six cases, or 129,825 times, government searchers said they came up empty-handed last year.Such cases contributed to an alarming measurement: People who asked for records under the law received censored files or nothing in 77 percent of requests, also a record. In the first full year after President Barack Obama’s election, that figure was only 65 percent of cases.

The new data represents the final figures on the subject that will be released during Obama’s presidency. Obama has said his administration is the most transparent ever.

What a joke.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This administration has been just about as "transparent" as a brick wall.

UK PM David Cameron delays release of Iraq report as EU referendum looms

British Prime Minister David Cameron will postpone publication of the Iraq war inquiry report until after the European Union referendum, leading to accusations that he is deliberately delaying controversial announcements.

Senior government sources confirmed that it is likely to be published after the June 23 vote, even though it will be handed to ministers next month. Mr Cameron had previously suggested he wanted to publish the report, which is expected to heavily criticise senior political figures, within two weeks of receiving it.

The prospect of a further delay was denounced on Friday by families who lost loved ones in the conflict.

The report of the six-year-long Chilcot inquiry has been repeatedly delayed after those criticised within it were given the right of reply, a process known as Maxwellisation.

Reg Keys, who lost his 20-year-old son Lance-Corporal Thomas Keys in the war, said the delay was adding to the families' pain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (complete absence of) surprise here!

The war was immoral, illegal, and based on a pack of lies; far too many good young Americans and Brits lost their lives, or became crippled for life, for control of Iraq's oil, and selling it only in US-denominated currency.

The Pitchforks Are Coming… For Us Plutocrats

I’m not the smartest guy you’ve ever met, or the hardest-working. I was a mediocre student. I’m not technical at all—I can’t write a word of code. What sets me apart, I think, is a tolerance for risk and an intuition about what will happen in the future. Seeing where things are headed is the essence of entrepreneurship. And what do I see in our future now?

I see pitchforks.

At the same time that people like you and me are thriving beyond the dreams of any plutocrats in history, the rest of the country—the 99.99 percent—is lagging far behind. The divide between the haves and have-nots is getting worse really, really fast. In 1980, the top 1 percent controlled about 8 percent of U.S. national income. The bottom 50 percent shared about 18 percent. Today the top 1 percent share about 20 percent; the bottom 50 percent, just 12 percent.

People Vs. AIPAC: Mighty Pro-Israel Lobby Loses Grip in US

AIPAC is considered to be the “main arm of the pro-Israeli lobby” in the US, has long seen unconditional bipartisan support in the US Congress. The lobby has long attempted to impose its will on US leaders in questions of foreign policy. For instance, it carried out a costly and ultimately unsuccessful campaign in the US to urge the American establishment to oppose the Iran nuclear deal, Blumenthal said. But this year, he pointed out, AIPAC has seen a decline in its political support.

“AIPAC is being challenged in the way it has never been, by coalescence of BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement and by very unpredictable presidential campaign,” Blumenthal said to Becker, pointing to the ongoing presidential run in the country.

‘Don’t Go Out After Sunset Or You’ll Be Raped’; – Swedish Police Chief

Swedish police have given up trying to protect Swedish women from the exponential rise of rapes and gang rapes by newly arrived Arab and North African migrants. Police Chief of stersund, Stephen Jerand, advised all women to not go out after sunset because they are likely to be raped or “something more terrible”. He says the rapes the police investigate are especially violent and often lead to serious injury or the death of the victims.

On Friday, March 18th, a combined effort by George Soros, Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, and Tayyip Erdogan, arranged to get the EU to abandon previously sacrosanct fundamental human rights of refugees, and to transfer $6B+ to Turkey, in return for placing the refugee burden onto Turkey and getting Turkey to cooperate so as to assist the breakup of Syria, which will enable a gas-pipeline and an oil-pipeline to be built through Syria to enable Qatar’s gas and Saudi Arabia’s oil to be pipelined through Syria into the EU, so as to replace Russian oil and gas, which now fuel the EU.

Putin’s Syrian strategy: Not following playbook of American exceptionalism

There are two main factors most have lost sight of when considering Russia’s Syrian exit strategy: First, Putin’s intervention in Syria was never about winning the war against ISIL, or even asserting President Bashar al-Assad’s position over his people. Second, Russia entered the military fray under a strict invitation from Damascus for a predetermined period of time.

Russia’s move in Syria was one rooted in support and clever politicking, not interventionism. Moscow never planned to exploit Damascus’ call for help and turn a regional ally into an obedient vassal, or worse.

Russia, it needs to be remembered, is not guided by America’s exceptionalism playbook, but international law. There is no underlying Russian territorial ambitions, no desire to utilize Terror to better chip away at a state’ sovereignty – and this in itself is marvelously refreshing.

Goldberg on Obama’s Syria credibility ‘crisis’

Everybody’s got something to say about Jeffrey Goldberg’s extensive article at The Atlantic, The Obama Doctrine. Since it was published last week, reviews have been more prolific than dandelions. It’s got a theme running through it; militarily, has the U.S. lost its deterrence credibility because of Barack Obama? And the article opens, closes, centers on, and drives home Obama’s failure to bomb Syria in August 2013 after Bashar al-Assad allegedly crossed Obama’s previously-stated red line.

Goldberg gnashes on this idea over and over in the interview. He’s not reporting the story, he’s driving it — for the neocons.

Trump Supporter’s House Vandalized, Post Tries to Ignore It - The Punch to the Face that Wasn’t?

Closer examination of the video reveals that the elderly, pony-tailed man appears not to have punched the young black man in the face, at all. Rather, he struck him intentionally only with his forearm in the upper part of the body near the younger man’s face. It looks like a glancing blow administered for maximum show but to little effect, sort of like what we see in professional wrestling matches. In a related article The Post reveals that the older man, John McGraw, an Air Force veteran, has been a “cowboy action” reenactor. A 2009 article from the mountain town of Hendersonville, NC, about McGraw is still more revealing. We learn that he is an Air Force veteran, that he had been a serious boxer in his youth, that he has deep and old ties to Las Vegas, where he was a friend of Sammy Davis, Jr., among a number of celebrities, and that at the time of the article he was still working as a sham gunfighter in wild west reenactments.

EMAILGATE REALLY COULD PREVENT HILLARY CLINTON FROM RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN NOVEMBER

Hillary Clinton’s recent statement on her potential prosecution, “it’s not going to happen,” then refusing to address the question at all in a recent debate, led to speculation about a backroom deal with the White House to shield Hillary from prosecution as long as Mr. Obama is in the Oval Office. After mid-January, however, all bets would be off. In that case, winning the White House herself could be an urgent matter of avoiding prosecution for Ms. Clinton.
