Philip Giraldi On Israel Getting The Biggest US Aid Package In History

US National Security Advisor Susan Rice met with her Israeli counterparts yesterday to sign an historic aid deal that will see $38 billion dollars shipped from US taxpayers to the Israeli military. In a press conference, Rice claimed that, “[t]his MOU is not just good for Israel—it’s good for the United States. Our security is linked…” Today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report is joined by former CIA officer Philip Giraldi to discuss how closely “linked” is US national security with Israeli security. Also, we discuss what a huge boon this will be for US defense contractors, who will supply all the military items to Israel:

"We Got Played!" Media Triggered After Trump Trolls Them Into Covering Military Endorsements

The absolute madman strikes again!

The media showed up to the presidential ballroom of the new Trump International Hotel on Friday morning expecting Donald Trump to take questions about whether he still questions if President Obama was born in the United States.

Instead, they got more than a half hour of a variety of military heroes — generals, medal of honor recipients and a gold star wife — expressing support for the Republican nominee. And it all aired live on the cable news networks.

Clinton: 'There is no Erasing' Trump's History of 'Birther' Attacks on President Obama

Hillary Clinton today said Donald Trump owes President Obama and the American people "an apology" for pushing the notion that President Obama was not born in the U.S, and that even if he flip-flops on his position now, “there is no erasing it in history.”

"For five years, he has led the birther movement to delegitimize our first black president. His campaign was founded on this outrageous lie. There is no erasing it in history,” the Democratic presidential nominee said during remarks at the Black Women’s Agenda symposium in Washington, D.C.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about flogging a dead horse!

Even the Washington Post admitted that the whole birther nonsense was started by Hillary's 2008 campaign. So Hillary started this nonsense, then fanned it up, hoping to trap Donald Trump with it and distract everyone from her ongoing "pavement challenges" and the valid concerns that she has Parkinson's Disease. But Donald apparently read up on the facts, which is that Obama's biological father was Frank Marshall Davis, who met Obama's mother at UH Manoa. Frank was funding his education as a pornographer and Obama's mother was one of his models, and it was the 60s, the summer of love (followed by the autumn of gonorrhea) and out pops Obama the love child. When Obama's mother married Obama Sr. it was easier to re-issue a birth certificate than go through a formal adoption (and it did happen a lot back then).

So Trump evaded the trap Hillary set for him and we get to watch Hillary throw a tantrum right here on ABC!

Economic costs of Middle East wars exceptionally high: IMF study

Armed conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa are not only devastating the economies gripped by fighting, but are sapping growth in neighboring countries and those hosting millions of refugees, the International Monetary Fund said Friday.

In a new study analyzing 179 conflict countries since 1970 to quantify economic costs, the IMF found that the drops in economic output in war-torn Syria, Libya and Yemen in recent years have far exceeded the worldwide average.

In terms of rhetoric, which has historically made major departures from actions, this campaign boils down the economic uncertainty that is enveloping this nation.

They are the ones who are feeling the hurt financially, not Wall Street.

It is they who must be convinced to support the government again.

Clinton Foundation CEO Admits To Pay-For-Play: "No Question" That "Courtesy Appointments" Were Made

Yesterday, the CEO of the Clinton Foundation, Donna Shalala, went on MSNBC and openly admitted to engaging in "pay-for-play" activities saying there is "no question" that Foundation donors received "courtesy appointments" during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State. Somehow, Shalala would like for us to believe that so long as appointees weren't put in a position to impact policy decisions then there is no real issue. I guess we should just ignore that taxpayers are funding the salaries of those appointees and paying for their government-related travel all over the world while Hillary gets to accrue "political capital" and her Foundation gets to continue raking in the donations?

Shalala also seems to invoke the Donna Brazile (new DNC Chair) defense who previously told ABC that "someone who is a donor..saying I want access" isn't an issue and anyone who suggests otherwise is just attempting to "criminalize behavior that is normal"

Deutsche Bank to fight $14 billion demand from U.S. authorities

Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) said it would fight a $14 billion demand from the U.S. Department of Justice to settle claims it missold mortgage-backed securities, a shock bill that raises questions about the future of Germany's largest lender.

The claim against Deutsche, which is likely to trigger several months of talks, far exceeds the bank's expectations that the DoJ would be looking for a figure of only up to 3 billion euros ($3.4 billion).

The demand adds to the problems facing Deutsche Bank's Chief Executive John Cryan, a Briton who has been in the job for a year.

The bank only scraped through European stress tests in July and has warned it may need deeper cost cuts to turn itself around after revenue fell sharply in the second quarter due to challenging markets and low interest rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any yet, if in fact these allegations prove true (and I do not doubt for a second that they are), there are no criminal indictments against any of the US Deutsche Bank executives who signed off on these business practices?!?

Pea-brained nation: New study reveals many common drugs that cause brain shrinkage

A group of common drugs used to treat allergies and other chronic health issues increase the risk of Alzheimers and dementia, according to a new study by the University of Indiana School of Medicine. The study also found that these drugs reduce the overall size of the brain as well as its metabolism if taken regularly. The drugs, known collectively as anticholinergics, are commonly prescribed for allergies, insomnia, hypertension, cardiac problems, and depression among others. Some of the most well-known brands in the US include Xanax, Zyrtec, Valium, Wellbutrin, Benadryl, Dramamine, Paxil, and Histex. You can see a comprehensive list of anticholinergic drugs implicated in this study by clicking here.

Leak From Biggest U.S. Gasoline Pipe Sparks ‘Red Alert’

Gasoline prices are set to jump across the eastern U.S. after a spill from the country’s largest fuel pipeline choked off supplies.
A leak in Alabama Sept. 9 shut the main gasoline pipeline delivering fuel from refineries along the Gulf Coast to 50 million Americans in states from Mississippi to New Jersey. Colonial Pipeline Co. said on Thursday it pushed back the estimate for a complete startup of its Line 1 to next week from this weekend, citing adverse weather conditions overnight that slowed the cleanup and repair.

Suppliers are moving gasoline and diesel by sea and sending trucks to distant terminals to bring fuel to consumers, but it won’t come close to the 1.3 million barrels a day that the shuttered line normally carries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, coupled with the bankruptcy of the South Korean shipping company Hanjin, is going to have a cascade effect on the delivery of goods here in the US.

If you have the ability to stock up now on some basics, you might want to do that, particularly if you live in the Eastern and Southern parts of the US.

DHS accused of sitting on damning border report as immigration issue drives presidential race

Federal lawmakers seeking to pinpoint the number of illegal immigrants who successfully sneak across the southern border ordered up a report from the Department of Homeland Security, but the agency refuses to release it and instead cites a misleading statistic that overstates the number who are nabbed, sources told Fox News.

DHS denied it is holding back the report, but sources say it was completed in November and that it shows roughly half of adults who attempt to cross the border make it - approximately 250,000 in total.

But that number is at odds with DHS’ official estimates. The agency claims authorities catch 80 percent of adults trying to sneak in, but critics say the figure is padded to make it appear border security is more effective than it really is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Obama Administration simply lies about everything, or withholds evidence when the information doesn't suit their narrative; this is why you cannot believe anything in this administration says, ever.

And perhaps the most ironic statement comes further down in the article with the following remark:

"“It erodes the trust as to whether the administration is being honest with the American people about what the threat is,” said Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., who serves on the Committee on Homeland Security and chairs the Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee.

Representative McSally, apparently, you have not received the memo: the American people do not trust the American government on ANYTHING, and it is a status which the US government has earned, by the lies, the corruption, and the double-dealing in which it indulges every day, 24/7

Berkeley Suspends Palestine Class Midway Through Semester

A University of California, Berkeley class, ‘Palestine: A Settler-Colonial Analysis’, was suspended after Chancellor Nicholas Dirks determined that the student teaching the course had not followed the appropriate procedures for its approval.

The one-credit student-taught class has become the center of a bitter debate. The class was meant to teach the history of Palestine “from the 1880s to the present, through the lens of settler colonialism,” its syllabus once read, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The syllabus has since been removed.

90-year-old Florida man arrested for second time in a week after feeding the homeless again

When 90-year-old Florida resident Arnold Abbott said following his arrest on Sunday that police couldn’t stop him from feeding the homeless, he apparently meant it.

Abbott was charged again on Wednesday night for violating a new city law in Ft. Lauderdale that essentially prevents people from feeding the homeless.

“I expected it" he said in a Sun Sentinel report. “At least this time they let us feed people first.”

Officers lingered in the area for about 45 minutes during which time Abbott and volunteers with the Love Thy Neighbor charity he founded handed out more than 100 plates of hot chicken stew, pasta, cheesy potatoes and fruit salad to homeless men and women.

If he’s found guilty of violating city ordinance laws — his second in a week — he faces 60 days in jail or a $500 fine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously, the city of Ft. Lauderdale ( in its infinite absence of wisdom) is completely, and thoroughly impotent to fix the problems of homelessness and hunger in their city; so naturally, officials decided the best way of "curing the problem" was to criminalize the feeding of the homeless!!

Smooth move there, city officials, congrats!

Because now, you have identified Ft. Lauderdale as "The City that Can't!", when it comes to resolving intense urban social problems, and the speculation that every City Council member here had their conscience surgically removed before taking office has, sadly, proven true.

My heart and my head are with Arnold Abbott, and his brother and sister volunteers at the Love Thy Neighbor charity.

May they ultimately be absolved, and may the city of Ft. Lauderdale find a more compassionate way of dealing with its hungry and homeless, many of whom are in this situation through absolutely no fault of their own.

DARPA ANNOUNCES AERIAL DRAGNET URBAN DRONE MONITORING PROGRAM

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency announced this week it is seeking proposals for its Aerial Dragnet program, a new initiative that seeks to monitor drones flying below 1,000 feet in large cities.

The program seeks to map small drones in urban terrain using innovative technologies that would provide persistent, wide-area surveillance, the agency said in a statement.

While Aerial Dragnet's focus is on protecting military troops in overseas urban settings, the system could also find civilian applications to help protect U.S. metropolitan areas from drone-enabled terrorist threats.

The need for a comprehensive tracking system has increased as off-the-shelf drones become less expensive, easier to fly and more adaptable to terrorist and military needs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, DARPA is looking at this for US urban surveillance?!?

And since when have the protections afforded by the Constitution and Bill of Rights been "chucked" for what is known as "Code Napoleon Law", where a suspect is automatically considered guilty before proven innocent?!?

I frankly do not remember that having happened, at least in terms of the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And what about the potential danger of small drones, and the capability of arming them?!?

As reported in breakingdefense.com in June of last year:

“We’re seeing capabilities that were previously the monopoly of major military powers are now accessible…to non-state actors, even individuals,” said Kelley Sayler. She’s an associate fellow at Center for a New American Security and author of a report out this morning, “A World of Proliferated Drones.” (CNAS provided us a copy in advance). “There’s been a lot of discussion around town, particularly as relates to drones in the national security space about high-end drones,” Sayler told me. “We didn’t really see there being discussion on the range of systems that are available…particularly given the availability of low-end systems, hobbyist drones, even commercial drones.” The biggest danger in the medium term: swarming technology. As drones get not only smarter but cheaper, an enterprising adversary could buy a bunch and release them all at once, with the drones using insect-like artificial intelligence to converge on their target. Lots of little threats carrying lots of little bombs can add up quickly. “Particularly if you’re looking at systems that can truly navigate autonomously, using those systems en masse is going to enable you to neutralize a much larger target,” Sayler said, “[and] it’s going to be more difficult to defend against because some of the lower end solutions like shooting the thing out with a shotgun might not necessarily be feasible.” “Drones will enable airborne IEDs [improvised explosive devices] that can actively seek out US forces, rather than passively lying in wait,” Sayler wrote in the report. “Indeed, low-cost drones may lead to a paradigm shift in ground warfare for the United States, ending more than a half-century…in which US ground forces have not had to fear attacks from the air.”

So the question I want to ask DARPA is as follows: since when have my brother and sister Americans, and peaceful legal immigrants become "the bad guys", in desperate need of surveillance, or perhaps, extrajudicial assassinations, as are used in Afghanistan and Iraq?!?

To say that I am profoundly disappointed in this kind of thinking by my government, is like saying that the Titanic hit a little ice!

In 2009, scientists revealed a study that found a honey better than all antibiotics out there.

This unbelievable honey is called Manuka honey. Bees forage on the nectar of the New Zealand “Manuka bush” or “jelly bush” (Leptospermum Scoparium). These trees are native to Australia and New Zealand alone...

How to Turn Kids Into Debt Slaves: Toymakers Busted for Data Mining Children

There’s no better way to prepare kids for the future than through play. The lessons we learn during playtime as youngsters will stick with us through life. How else could we learn the rules of society and how we should appropriately work within those rules?

Back in the old days, we learned that if we were jerks to the neighbor kids, we’d get clotheslined playing Red Rover. Ouch. But, lesson learned, don’t be a jerk – or if you are, expect that people will react accordingly.

These days, no one is playing anything “dangerous” like Red Rover or tag. Heck, you could practically get arrested for suggesting such hazardous pastimes.

Anonymous Blows The Lid Off Hillary Clinton

Between leaving Americans to die in Benghazi, destabilizing Haiti’s economy, playing a major role in Syria’s downfall and the rise of ISIS, and destroying evidence which could potentially be used for incrimination purposes, Hillary Clinton has a disturbing – and bloody – track record in politics.

Despite this, the former Secretary of State still retains impressive support for her run to be elected as President of the United States. If the prospect of her leading an entire nation doesn’t frighten you, however, you may not be paying attention to her shady past or present dealings.

Plenty of incriminating information has been released about Clinton and the deals she’s been involved in, but this has done little to derail her campaign. Perhaps it’s because of this that the self-proclaimed hacktivist group Anonymous has switched its focus to expose Hillary Clinton.

"Countries that decide to accept refugees on their territory should not try redistributing these migrants by applying pressure, which is, in fact, equivalent to applying force…Every country should decide whether it stands to gain or to lose from migration," Kover said.

Here Are The "Lines Of People" Waiting For The New iPhone 7

After several spurious reports of substantial preorder spikes for the iPhone 7 by the likes of T-Mobile - if not so much Verizon - AAPL stock enjoyed the biggest weekly surge in years. However, judging by the "lines of people" waiting for the new gadget as it officially goes on sale in retail outlets, said surge in the stock may have been premature, and merely the latest marketing gimmick that has made a "scarcity" factory into a sublime art form.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only thing that is scarce are customers!

Insatiable: The Democrats Must Attack Democracy To Serve Corporate Power

You might think that pervasive election fraud, the conversion of mass media into propaganda, and the already insignificant role that everyday people play in federal government would be enough to satisfy the elite’s lust for power.

Or, that record corporate profits, legal and illegal tax evasion, billions in tax-payer funded subsidies, unprecedented global bailouts and the resulting poverty of billions of human beings would appease the Goldman Sachs of the world and their demand for more and more.

Lawmakers Probe Tax Incentives Received by Solar-Energy Firms

Congressional lawmakers have launched a formal investigation into whether solar-energy companies improperly received billions of dollars in tax incentives from the Obama administration.

The Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday sent letters to seven foreign and domestic companies in the solar industry, expanding a more limited probe started earlier this year.

The recipients included three firms in the residential solar industry, SolarCity Corp., Sunrun Inc. and Sungevity Inc., and four solar utility companies -- SunEdison Inc., Abengoa SA, NextEra Energy Inc. and NRG Energy Inc.

Egyptian state media claims Isis is 'made up' and 9/11 was carried out by West to justify war on terror

A columnist for a state-run newspaper in Egypt has suggested the US invented Isis and set up the 9/11 attacks to justify its military interventions in the Middle East.

“Is it possible to believe the official version, from the US government, of the events of 11 September 2001?” wrote journalist Noha Al-Sharnoubi in Al-Ahram, a major national Egyptian newspaper owned by the government.

Ms Al-Sharnoubi said the World Trade Centre and Pentagon attacks could have been premeditated to "justify the war on terror” in her column, published on 23 August.

Boehner gets a smokin' new job

It’s a match made in heaven, or maybe made in a designated smoking area.

Former House speaker and unrepentant smoker John Boehner has joined the board of tobacco giant Reynolds American Inc. The former GOP congressman from Ohio is widely known for his cigarette habit — he generally smokes Camel Ultra Lights, which are made by Reynolds — as well as his close ties to the tobacco industry.

He once handed out campaign checks from tobacco interests on the House floor, a move he later said he regretted.

There is a twist to Boehner’s new corporate gig. He will apparently be helping the company stop kids from smoking, or so says his spokesman.

Germany torn apart: Mob of 100 neo-Nazis in vicious brawl with 20 asylum seekers who goaded them into violence in latest example of how Merkel's open-door policy is dividing the country

Refugees and neo-Nazis battled it out on the streets of an east German town on Wednesday night with police fighting to save the migrants outnumbered five to one.

But police said the asylum seekers started the confrontation - and later hurled bottles at the police trying to save them from a beating.

About 100 far-right men and women attacked some 20 asylum seekers in the town of Bautzen after the migrants taunted them. Video footage shows chaotic scenes as fighting breaks out in the German town.

It comes as German chancellor Angela Merkel continues to fight for her political life over her open-door policy on immigration with the threat of fresh gains by the right-wing populist AfD party.

It's been eight years since the financial crisis, but some wounds remain unhealed: Among them, the Obama administration's almost total failure to prosecute senior Wall Street executives for the criminal activities that helped precipitate the collapse.

Facebook And Israel Officially Announce Collaboration To Censor Social Media Content

By Whitney Webb

Following Facebook’s censorship controversy over a world famous photograph of the Vietnam War, Facebook has agreed to “work together” with Israel’s government to censor content Israeli officials deem to be improper. Facebook officially announced the “cooperative” arrangement after a meeting took place between Israeli government ministers and top Facebook officials on September 11th. The Israeli government’s frenzied push to monitor and censor Facebook content it deems inappropriate follows the viral success of BDS, or Boycott, Divest, Sanctions, a global non-violent movement that works to expose Israeli human rights violations...

FBI Director: US Could Be Retaliating Against Russia Secretly

Speaking today at an event in Washington DC, FBI Director James Comey rejected the idea that the US was not doing anything about “Russian cyber threats” and allegations of hacks by Russia against US interests, saying that the lack of public response doesn’t mean the US isn’t doing anything.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course Russia, which knows they are not the hackers that embarrassed the DNC, will view any cyber-actions by the FBI as offensive provocations!

Is it already too late to consider the ethics of mind control technology?

There seems to be a troubling uptick around “ethics” recently within scientific circles that are focusing on robotics, artificial intelligence, and brain research. I say troubling because embedded within the standard appeals for caution which should appear in science, there also seems to be a tacit admission that things might be quickly spiraling out of control, as we are told of meetings, conventions, and workshops that have the ring of emergency scrambles more than debating society confabs.

I have this picture of Hillary hanging in my home.

I think we've had enough of the Clinton's in the White House, don't you? Judging from her past record, she would be a truly horrible President, just as she has been a horrible Senator and Secretary of State. The destruction she could cause in a four-year term as president could very well be irreversible.

But, that doesn't mean she is useless. We finally figured out something that Hillary is good at! Introducing our Hillary Toilet Paper. Now you can tell your liberal friends that you proudly hang a picture of Hillary Clinton in your home! Or more specifically, in your bathroom.

41% Of Americans Believe Clinton’s Health Is Bad – Poll

US voters are increasingly convinced that Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton has health issues, a new poll showed. The issue was again brought up after Clinton’s health scare during a 9/11 anniversary commemoration on Sunday.

The Morning Consult poll taken on Monday and Tuesday showed that roughly eight in 10 Americans have heard at least something about Clinton’s health concerns. Today just 22 percent of people in the US believe that her health is above average, down from 29 percent in late August.

Newspapers: Fact Sheet

For newspapers, 2015 might as well have been a recession year. Weekday circulation fell 7% and Sunday circulation fell 4%, both showing their greatest declines since 2010. At the same time, advertising revenue experienced its greatest drop since 2009, falling nearly 8% from 2014 to 2015. Fully one-fourth of advertising revenue now comes from digital advertising, but not because of growth in that area: Digital advertising revenue fell 2% in 2015. It’s just that non-digital advertising revenue fell more, dropping 10% in 2015. In 2014, the latest year for which data were available, newsroom employment also declined 10%, more than in any other year since 2009. The newspaper workforce has shrunk by about 20,000 positions, or 39%, in the last 20 years.

ANOTHER BILLIONAIRE WARNS OF CATASTROPHIC DEPTHS NOT SEEN IN 5,000 YEARS – AND EMPHASIZES GOLD

In past issues, we’ve documented increasingly concerned billionaires warning of dangerous economic times. Many have favored gold as an alternative allocation in a world where $13 trillion-worth of debt is negative yielding, interest rates are artificially suppressed and we’re on the brink of major wars.

The newest addition to this gold-loving billionaire’s club, is none other than hedge-fund manager Paul Singer. At CNBC’s Delivering Alpha Investors Conference this week, the founder of the $27-billion Elliott Management Fund, the 17th largest hedge fund in the world, mentioned that at current prices gold is “undervalued” and “underrepresented in many portfolios as the only … store of value that has stood the test of time.”

We get reaction from WikiLeaks editor Sarah Harrison and filmmaker Oliver Stone. "She misses the point that no spy gives his story to the newspapers for free, which is what he did," Stone says. "He handed over all the information." Harrison adds, "To me, this is all just rhetorical spin trying to deflect from the real situation."

How did George Soros "break the Bank of England"?

In Britain, Black Wednesday (September 16, 1992) is known as the day that speculators broke the pound. They didn't actually break it, but they forced the British government to pull it from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM). Joining the ERM was part of Britain's effort to help along the unification of the European economies. However, in the imperialistic style of old, she had tried to stack the deck.

Although it stood apart from European currencies, the British pound had shadowed the German mark in the period leading up to the 1990s. Unfortunately, the desire to "keep up with the Joneses" left Britain with low interest rates and high inflation. Britain entered the ERM with the express desire to keep its currency above 2.7 marks to the pound. This was fundamentally unsound because Britain's inflation rate was many times that of Germany's.

Mistletoe proves an unlikely cure for cancer

A CANCER patient who was given just two months to live has made a miracle recovery - after injecting himself with mistletoe extract.

Dave Reynolds was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and was searching for a stem cell donor when doctors told him that his condition was terminal.

With just eight weeks to live, the devastated father-of-three was persuaded by his wife Dian to try an alternative therapy she had read about online.

The approach involves mistletoe extract being injected twice a week and - four months later - the 50-year-old's scans have come back clear.

When Reality Turned inside Out

It turns out that Trump’s base personality is “winning.” Everything else he does is designed to get that result. He needed to be loud and outrageous in the primaries, so he was. He needs to be presidential in this phase of the election cycle, so he is.

More evidence that the alcohol industry is bankrolling anti-marijuana campaigns

The alcohol and pharmaceutical industries are largely bankrolling the pushback against marijuana legalization, the Intercept reports. In Arizona, it was revealed last week that Insys Therapeutics Inc., a company that makes opioids and is developing synthetic cannabinoids, donated $500,000 to Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, an anti-legalization organization. And the Arizona Wine and Spirits Wholesale Association also gave $10,000 to the group.

This article was originally published by The Influence, a news site that covers the full spectrum of human relationships with drugs. Follow The Influence on Facebook or Twitter.

The Intercept also points to other states where the alcohol industry has actively opposed legalization. One major contributor to anti-legalization efforts has been the Massachusetts-based Beer Distributors PAC, which contributed $25,000 to Campaign for a Safe and Healthy Massachusetts, an anti-legalization group.

It is an election year and the media has obsessed over Trump’s inflammatory statements and HRC’s health. A recent Google search for “Hillary’s health” showed 140 million hits. Parkinson’s has been widely mentioned.

Both issues could affect the outcome of the Presidential election IF the election is honest and has not already been decided.

But are election fraud, vote “miscounts,” illegal voters, and buying the election probable? We all know the jokes about the Chicago cemetery vote, but what about election fraud in voting machines, punch cards, or manual systems?
