Monmouth University Pollster Patrick Murray Busted Manipulating Poll Data, then Lying About It…

Actual poll results = Trump - 41% | Clinton - 39%

What Monmouth University tells the public is, Trump - 39% | Clinton - 43%

Do NOT believe any poll that has been "weighted" such as Monmouth, or "averaged" such as the University of Southern California, or any other bull-hockey outfit. Also keep in mind that when one of these boiler rooms calls out to take a poll, they have mined 'big data' to be sure who they call is likely to say what they want said.

The Bogus ‘Humanitarian’ War On Serbia

The exoneration of a man accused of the worst of crimes, genocide, made no headlines. Neither the BBC nor CNN covered it. The Guardian allowed a brief commentary.

American party in Rio: There's no sin below the equator

When American swimmers were robbed at a gas station in Rio de Janeiro, the reports about the incident appeared as "breaking news" in most of US publications. It has been recently revealed, however, that the Americans initiated the robbery and accused the Brazilian police of violence... Brian Winter, an expert at the Research Center of the Americas in Washington, DC (Council of the Americas) told BBC Brasil that the story would be forgotten in a few days, but it was important to reveal all the facts. It would be sad if Brazil forgets the story indeed. The story has affected the image of Brazil as a democracy with strong legal and security agencies. A variety of Western publications have been doing their best to stain this image throughout the Rio Olympics. The story started a lot earlier, when the case for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff was opened six months ago.

A pattern emerges : Clinton Getting Away With Ethics Shorcuts For Long, Long Time…

Then there's something called the Clinton Foundation, without the "Family" part in the title. And the Washington Post reported last week that more than half of the big donors to that outfit--those who have given a million dollars or more--are corporations or foreign groups or governments. The Post tallied them up in a feat of investigative journalism the other day. Among the big givers were the governments of Saudi Arabia, Barclay's Bank in Britain, and American companies like Coca-Cola and ExxonMobil. Not to mention the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Brunei and Algeria.

Syria won't reach democracy with Assad, Erdogan says

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Syria will never "reach democracy" under the leadership of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Erdogan made the remarks on Wednesday following a joint press conference with visiting US Vice President Joe Biden and hours after the Turkish military launched an operation on Syrian soil under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

The Turkish president also noted that Turkish-backed Syrian militants had retaken the Syrian town of Jarablus from Daesh Takfiri militants following the incursion that involved Turkish tanks and special forces supported by US and Turkish fighter jets.

Here We Go Again. Serbia Has a New Government

Aleksandar Vucic failed to keep the promise that he made during his visit to Moscow on May 2016 to form a new government by mid-June. The government was formed 14 weeks after the snap elections that were held from April 24 to May 4, 2016. There is little doubt that the procedure was delayed due to the complex political situation in Serbia and the ambivalent position of Aleksandar Vucic and his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS). On the one hand, if the opinion polls are to be believed, the Prime Minister’s approval rating is considerable and he has the support of nearly half of the population. His trump card is his dramatic, expansive and emotional style, coupled with confidence, a command of the facts and a knack for turning a patently losing situation into an attractive ideologeme. On the other hand, the actions of the last government ran counter to the values and perceptions that the politically active segment of society has formed since October 5, 2000.

Stacking Cheddar: Agriculture Dept Buys 11 Million Pounds Of Cheese

Talk about government cheese! The feds have announced a plan to buy 11 million pounds of cheese and distribute it to food banks and charity organizations. The cost of this plan is valued at $20 million and is billed to help US dairy farmers as well.

The nation’s biggest crisis is coming to an end. Yes, it’s true: the nightmare of the cheese surplus may be solved, thanks to the US Department of Agriculture. Their answer was extremely simple: just buy cheese – and so they did.

US Threat To Shoot Down Syrian Jets Declaration Of War: Analyst

Questioning Hillary’s Health is Not Conspiracy Theory

What’s so amusing about the tactics of these self-important pundits is their willingness to do the exact same thing they demonize “fringe bloggers” of doing: playing doctor. Most of those rushing out to confidently ensure the public that everything is just fine and dandy with Hillary Clinton’s health lack any medical credentials. They’re just journalists and pundits who have decided Hillary is fine based on a two-page letter from internist Dr. Lisa Bardack. Does writing for the Washington Post or CNN make them the authority on Hillary Clinton’s health? Of course not. -- To highlight just how unquestioning and extremely biased much of the mainstream media really is, let’s take a look at what comes up as the top story when I search “Hillary health debunked.”

Following the California primary, The New York Times reported on State Department diplomats issuing an internal memo “urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al Assad.”

The Siberian plague

In Russia's Far North, in the Yamalo-Nenets region, authorities have been fighting an outbreak of the Siberian plague, which is called anthrax in the West. More than 2,000 reindeer have died, and 90 local tribe members have been hospitalized, of which 53 are children. In the beginning of August, a 12-year old boy died in hospital. "Children were infected as a reuslt of traditional customs," said Anna Popova, head of Russia's public health watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor. Some families in Yamalo-Nenets still drink deer blood and eat raw meat. In accordance with tradition, children remove the reindeer veins with their teeth. "They make threads out of reindeer blood vessels," Popova explained. She added that it was impossible to avoid infection in such a situation. Private property, such as teepees, sleighs, clothes, and household items were burned in order to contain the infection. A massive vaccination campaign is underway in the region for both people and animals.

U.S. Defense Contractors Tell Investors Russian Threat Is Great for Business

The escalating anti - Russian rhetoric in the U.S. presidential campaign comes in the midst of a major push by military contractors to position Moscow as a potent enemy that must be countered with a drastic increase in military spending by NATO countries. Weapon makers have told investors that they are relying on tensions with Russia to fuel new business in the wake of Russian’s annexation of Crimea and modest increases in its military budget. In particular, the arms industry — both directly and through its arsenal of hired-gun, think-tank experts and lobbyists – is actively pressuring NATO member nations to hike defense spending in line with the NATO goal for member states to spend at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense. Retired Army Gen. Richard Cody, a vice president at L-3 Communications, the seventh largest U.S. defense contractor, explained to shareholders in December that the industry was faced with a historic opportunity.

There will be no traditional war prepared by generals or a nuclear conflict. Instead, the West will attack Russia through terrorist groups from Ukraine and Central Asia. This was stated by Russian military commentator Alexander Zhilin live on Red Line TV channel. “If they are going to squeeze us, then by means of terror from Ukraine. We perfectly know that ISIS and other gangs were created by the Anglo-Saxon intelligence services in order to carry out effective military operations circumventing nuclear deterrence forces,” Zhilin said.

No Proof, But ‘Russian Hackers’: CNN Blunders With Report On ‘Breach’ At NYT – Not Even Asking NYT

Another round of hysteria blaming shady Kremlin hackers has taken over western media after CNN reported that FBI is probing “cyber breaches” at The New York Times. The NYT then disputed the report, saying its Moscow bureau has been attacked but not hacked.

The story originated with CNN, which was quick to point to “hackers thought to be working for Russian intelligence” when reporting on what the NYT called a cyberattack. CNN even cited an unnamed source, stating that the FBI is already investigating the incident.

"The events that happened in the Crimea should be analyzed in the context of the hybrid warfare that is being waged against Russia. This war is approaching its "hot phase," when the relations between Russia and Ukraine aggravate sharply. The ideologists of this war need to instigate a conflict between our countries. Ukraine has already put its armed forces on alert - this is one of the symptoms. The Crimea was used as a trigger, because Western analysts assumed that it would push Putin towards making a tougher response than, for example, the attack on the Donbas..."

Russia tests stratospheric missile to destroy fleets

Russia completes the tests of stratospheric weapons for long-range bombers. The weapons are said to be capable of striking targets at a distance of 1,000 kilometers. The Russian long-range supersonic missile-bombers Tu-22M3 with the variable geometry of wings, (NATO reporting name Backfire) will be equipped with X-32 cruise missiles. The missiles will be nearly invulnerable to enemy's air defenses and interceptors. After launch, the X-32 will be able to gain altitude of up to 40 kilometers and reach the stratosphere before swooping down at a steep angle to strike the target. According to representatives of the Russian defense industry, the tests of the new missile are about to be finished. Employees of the Tactical Missiles Corporation, which is part of Rainbow Design Bureau, have confirmed the information, but withheld further comments. Reportedly, the X-32 cruise missile is designed to eliminate enemy ships and radar stations...

Russia starts designing main superheavy rocket for lunar program

Experts of the state-run corporation Roscosmos started designing a new superheavy rocket on the basis of the "Energia-Buran" program. The new rocket is said to be built with the use of the existent RD-171 rocket engine. "We do not consider using hydrogen circuits on the first and second stages of this carrier. We intend to take the third stage from the currently-operating Angara rocket," a representative for the corporation told the Izvestia newspaper. According to General Director of Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, Vladimir Solntsev, the new rocket will be able to deliver about 80 tons of payload into low support orbit. Its further evolution on the basis of RD-171 engines implies the possibility of increasing the carrying capacity up to 120 tons and, if necessary, to 160 tons. It will be possible to increase the payload by changing the rocket structure and expanding the capacity of the engine.

ISS orbit raised by 2,3 km for docking with new Soyuz MS ship

According to the Mission Control, the maneuver was needed to create the ballistic conditions for the coming landing of the Souyz TMA-20M manned spacecraft and the following launch of the Soyuz MS-02 ship. The ISS orbital altitude drops gradually over time due to the Earth's gravitational pull and atmospheric drag. Periodic re-boosts adjust the ISS orbit. The landing of the Soyuz TMA-20M spacecraft, the last in this series, is planned for September 7. The ship will return to Earth Russian cosmonauts Alexei Ovchinin and Oleg Skripochka, as well as NASA astronaut Jeffrey N. Williams. The blastoff of the Soyuz MS-02 (second ship of a news series) is scheduled for September 23 from the Baikonur cosmodrome (Kazakhstan).

Investors Have Pulled $109 Billion From Active Equity Funds In 2016: Here's Why

2016 has been another bad year for the hedge funds community in particular, and active managers in general (despite the previously noted rebound in performance since the end of Q2 on the back of short covering and major releveraging). The best representation of this comes courtesy of JPM's Dubravko Lakos-Bujas, who shows that investors have pulled more than $109 billion from active US equity funds YTD. While they are the clear losers in the capital allocation race, the winners are passive equity funds which have captured a whopping $35 billion of inflows, as more and more investors seek to take the simpler, cheaper-managed option (even if it is one which assures their investing career will on day end in tears).

Philippines' Duterte warns China of 'reckoning'

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte warned Wednesday of a "reckoning" with China if there was no resolution to a tense dispute over rival claims to the South China Sea.

An international tribunal ruled last month that China's claims to most of the strategically vital waters had no legal basis, in what was seen as a sweeping victory for the Philippines, which filed the case.

Duterte repeatedly had said he did not want to anger China with an aggressive response, and sent an envoy to ease tensions, but on Wednesday signalled he was prepared to adopt a more confrontational approach.

"We will not raise hell now because of the judgement but there will come a time that we will have to do some reckoning about this," Duterte said in a speech to soldiers at a military camp.

China, which has in recent years undertaken giant land reclamation works in disputed parts of the sea, has vowed to ignore the ruling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at thediplomat.com in January of this year, concerning the newly minted mutual defense pact between the US and the Philippines:

The EDCA provides U.S. forces rotational, negotiated, and limited access to a number of mutually-agreed upon locations. So far, the Americans have zeroed in on at least eight prime military bases, including Subic and Clark — the site of largest American military bases during Cold War — as well as Oyster Bay in Palawan, strategically close to disputed land features and waters in the South China Sea. Instead of permanent U.S. bases, we are instead looking at the establishment of forward operating sites and cooperative security locations, where the host nation (theoretically) enjoys considerable supervision and control over the activities of visiting forces. The EDCA is particularly beneficial to the United States, because it will no longer have to pay huge sums to rent out Filipino bases à la Cold War days, not to mention that the Philippines will actually end up paying for the transportation and utility costs of visiting forces. In short, the Pentagon will enjoy low-cost and flexible access to premium locations in the Philippines. So what is the Philippines is getting in exchange? There is nothing in the EDCA that compels the United States to come to the host nation’s rescue as far as Sino-Philippine territorial disputes are concerned. The Obama administration has consistently reiterated that the agreement is not aimed at China, but instead is aimed at enhancing the two allies’ capabilities in the realm of humanitarian relief and disaster-management operations. The Philippines, however, hopes that an increased U.S. military footprint on its soil will nonetheless provide some element of ‘latent deterrence’ against further Chinese provocations. Although legally not obligated to do so, Washington will surely come under tremendous political pressure to help the Philippines in an event of contingency in the disputed waters. Furthermore, EDCA facilitates the expansion of joint military exercises, the enhancement of interoperability among the two allies, and the transfer of more U.S. funds and military equipment to Armed Forces of the Philippines.

I am sure that US forces have been moving quickly to occupy those agreed-upon bases, and that US military equipment has been put into place to confront China militarily from the Philippines; I think that this is why Duterte seized this moment to challenge China.

At least one student died and 14 other people were hurt Wednesday after a "complex" gun and bomb attack at American University of Afghanistan in western Kabul, police and the head of the city's hospitals reported, as the military worked for hours to free students and staff inside.

Security forces were conducting a clearing operation to track down the "terrorists" and slowly rescue teachers and hundreds of students who huddled in classrooms and safe rooms, police spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said. Sediqqi said it was not clear if there were one or two attackers.

The Dangerous Temper Tantrums of US War Hawks. Make Russia and Iran “Pay a Price” for Fighting Terrorism in Syria

Similar to petulant children who do not get their own way, there is an increasingly choir of war hawks in the US who are pushing for a major escalation in the Syrian war. In response to the fading power of Washington in the world, and the success of the Syrian Army, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, in fighting terrorism in Syria, the war hawks in Washington are calling for blood.

The fact that the government of Bashar al-Assad is still standing after the West has spent the last five years trying to overthrow it is too much for many in the US to accept. Furthermore, with a growing number of major powers forming strategic relationships outside of Washington’s control, US imperialists are increasingly terrified of how the geopolitical landscape is shaping up.

Making Russia and Iran “Pay a Price” for Fighting Terrorists in Syria

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An escalation of the war on Syria, coupled with attacks against Russia, and Iran, are sheer madness.

Unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do is no guarantee that they won't do it.

And of course, if it turns out that internal DNC and White House polls on the upcoming election indicate that Trump is going to win in a landslide, the DNC will be most delighted to "gift" him with a war before he has even taken the Oath of Office in January.

The Strategies of Global Warfare: War with China and Russia? Washington’s Military Design in the Asia-Pacific

It is important to focus on Southeast Asia and East Asia in a broader geopolitical context. China, North Korea as well as Russia are potential targets under Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”, involving the combined threat of missile deployments, naval power and pre-emptive nuclear war.

We are not dealing with piecemeal military endeavors. The regional Asia-Pacific military agenda under the auspices of US Pacific Command (USPACOM) is part of a global process of US-NATO military planning.

US military actions are carefully coordinated. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Asia Pacific region. In turn, the planning of military operations is coordinated with non-conventional forms of warfare including regime change, financial warfare and economic sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are peace and prosperity never the options here, only more wars and more destruction?!?

That is a question I want answered by our politicians.

I have a tremendous respect for Professor Chossudovsky; he does have a real gift for calling geopolitical issues like he sees them.

I cannot tell you when a major, dramatic moment of conflict is going to take place; but I can tell you, with a reasonable degree of certainty, that it is coming.

Watching what is going on around the world, courtesy of the US government, is kind of like watching that archetypal dream, where you see the coming of a slow-motion train wreck, and it is impossible to stop. And Mike and I have seen this coming for quite some time.

Here are some links about intelligent prepping, which I hope you will find useful; because at this moment, the most powerful, life-affirming thing we can do is take care of ourselves, and the people we care about.

FLASHBACK - BBC Caught Red Handed Hoaxing Russian T-72?s Invading! They Were Junk Tanks Bought By Ukraine for Propaganda!

A couple of weeks ago, Ukraine bought some old T-72?s from Hungary at the scrap price of about $8,500 dollars each which is their value as scrap metal. Ukraine does not use the T-72, it uses the later t-80 and t-84. But Russia still uses the T-72. It seems that the only purpose that Ukraine bought these junk tanks for is to create a false flag or for more lies from the fake news that Russia is invading! The BBC ran with the hoax story of the T-72 Russian tanks crossing the border invading as did many other mainstream fake news outlets! This is all just more lies from the Ukrainian puppet government that was put into power for $5 Billion. Soros actually bragged about it! It makes me sick that you get more truth from Iranian news that US or British news. What a fraud!

A Rare Glimpse of Abu Zubaydah 14 Years After First CIA Torture Session

, made his first appearance Tuesday on video from Guantanamo in a hearing before a Periodic Review Board, 14 years after the last day of a month-long interrogation at a CIA black site in Thailand. It was the first time the “enhanced interrogation techniques” approved by the Bush administration were used on a detainee.

Back then, Abu Zubaydah still had his left eye.

Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian whose real name is Zayn al Abidin Muhammad, was captured in a raid of a Faisalabad, Pakistan, house on March 28, 2002, suffering severe bullet wounds. The interrogation techniques used on him included stress positions, sleep deprivation, insects placed in a confinement box, and waterboarding, among others.

Most notably perhaps, he was waterboarded 83 times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A complete denial of due process, coupled with torture; this is horrific, and you may be wondering: could it happen here?!?

And there are - and have been - a number of other prison facilities around the country, as this article describes:

Soros Emerges As Mastermind Behind Plan To "Enlarge Electorate By At Least 10 Million Voters"

Speaking on "MSNBC Live" Congressman Matt Cartwright (D-PA) was grilled by host Stephanie Ruhle who demanded the Clinton surrogate who was appealing to Hillary’s trustworthiness explain how the former Secretary of State did not commit perjury.

On Wednesday, the American political axis flipped on its head once again as bombastic billionaire Donald Trump, after several months of dominating headlines for insulting rhetoric and unforced political errors, was not the center of the political discussion in the mainstream media which instead narrowed its sights, for however brief a period of time, on the issue of Clinton’s honesty and whether she perjured herself in her Congressional testimony.

North Korea fires submarine-launched ballistic missile towards Japan

North Korea fired a submarine-launched missile on Wednesday that flew about 500 km (311 miles) towards Japan, a show of improving technological capability for the isolated country that has conducted a series of launches in defiance of UN sanctions.

Having the ability to fire a missile from a submarine could help North Korea evade a new anti-missile system planned for South Korea and pose a threat even if nuclear-armed North Korea's land-based arsenal was destroyed, experts said.

The ballistic missile was fired at around 5:30 a.m. (2030 GMT) from near the coastal city of Sinpo, where a submarine base is located, officials at South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Defence Ministry told Reuters.

The projectile reached Japan's air defence identification zone (ADIZ) for the first time, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a briefing, referring to an area of control designated by countries to help maintain air security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More wars in the region are not going to stop the trajectory of North Korea's growth in military hardware; and with this test firing, it appears as though North Korea's capabilities are improving rapidly.

I wish that China, South Korea, Japan, and the US could get Kim Jung Un to the negotiating table, and negotiate a true peace treaty to replace the armistice, with guarantees on military and trade opportunities if North Korea stops their nuclear missile development; but of course, that... would be logical.

If not, I would not be surprised to see North Korea actually being able to target their missiles by the end of this year, with this much improvement seen on this sub-launched missiles.

Poroshenko transfers 141 pieces of combat hardware to army to beef up grouping in Donbass

Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko has transferred 141 pieces of domestically-produced combat hardware to the country’s armed forces to strengthen their grouping in the area of Kiev’s military operation in Donbass.

"Today we’re transferring 141 pieces of military hardware produced and modernized at Ukrainian defense enterprises," Poroshenko said at the handover ceremony in the town of Chuguyev in the north-eastern Kharkov region.
As Poroshenko said, this combat hardware will help the Ukrainian army to defend the country more effectively and finally achieve peace in the Donbass region.

In 2016 alone, the Ukrainian armed forces have received over a thousand units of combat hardware, Poroshenko said. The Ukrainian leader also said that deliveries from foreign partners had been organized as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These tanks and combat hardware are not elements for peace; they are elements with which to start a war against rebel Eastern republics.

As reported yesterday at Mac Salvo's site, www.shtplan.com:

The situation of the rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia is being paralleled by the war of words between the countries’ two leaders. As mentioned in a previous article, Vladimir Putin is still not satisfied with the alleged actions by Ukrainian commandos that killed one FSB officer and one enlisted man on two separate incidents. Putin went on to say that any meetings between Poroshenko and himself in the upcoming G-20 summit would be “pointless,” and accused Ukraine of conducting terror attacks. To further complicate the issue, the attacks were labeled as “border incursions,” as they occurred in Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014. In addition to this, the 24th of August is rapidly approaching, and this is the date that Ukrainians celebrate their Independence Day…from the Soviet Union. This bears special noteworthiness, as it would be a prime moment to conduct an incursion due to the historical significance of the date. Vladimir Putin visited Crimea on August 19th and said the following to the Security Council of Sevastopol: “I think it’s obvious that Kiev’s current authorities are not seeking ways to solve problems through negotiations, but have turned to terrorism. We’re not going to cut our relations, despite the reluctance of the current authorities in Kiev to have full diplomatic ties at ambassador level.” None of this is sitting well with Poroshenko, and the process for drafting as many as 100,000 men was initiated by him with a letter last week.

These are not the moves of a country's leader who is looking for a peaceful resolution to a geopolitical conflict.

And the US-government-enabled Poroshenko may well believe that if they start a war, to reclaim their breakaway Eastern republics, (and Crimea) that the US will support them militarily, so he just may start a military offensive unilaterally, expecting that the US and NATO will support him.

That he doesn't understand that he is playing with fire, if he does pull a unilateral attack against the Eastern republics, is very, very troubling indeed.

The donations, which range from the low-thousands to the millions, provide a picture of the media industry's ties to the Clinton Foundation at a time when one of its most notable personalities, George Stephanopoulos, is under scrutiny for not disclosing his own $75,000 contribution when reporting on the foundation.

Obama Admin Won’t Tell Congress How It Paid Iran $1.3 Billion in Taxpayer Funds

The Obama administration is withholding from Congress details about how $1.3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds was delivered to Iran, according to conversations with lawmakers, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the administration is now stonewalling an official inquiry into the matter.

The Departments of State, Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the administration had paid Iran a ransom.

The Obama administration has admitted in recent days that the $400 million cash delivery to Iran was part of an effort to secure the release of these American hostages, raising further questions on Capitol Hill about White House efforts to suppress these details from the public.

Did Hillary Clinton Violate the Espionage Act?

Contributions, either directly, or indirectly to Clinton’s Foundation are more than a “Conflict of Interest”. Since her job description was to specifically protect US interests, any remuneration could be prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917. In the words of Woodrow Wilson:

“There are citizens of the United States, … who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our Government into contempt, to destroy our industries wherever they thought it effective … to strike at them, and to debase our politics to the uses of foreign intrigue …

They have formed plots to destroy property, they have entered into conspiracies against the neutrality of the Government, they have sought to pry into every confidential transaction of the Government in order to serve interests alien to our own.”

Is Obama Enabling the Next President to Launch Illegal Wars?

President Obama has been emphatically warning Americans about the dangers of a Trump presidency. But these warnings divert attention from a much darker reality. His Justice Department is in fact pushing the law in a direction that will enable the next president to declare war against any “terrorist” group or nation without the consent of Congress.

This reality is clear from the Department’s response to a lawsuit challenging the legality of Obama’s war against the Islamic State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at poynter.org in October, 2014:

The irony of President Barack Obama, Nobel Prize winner and putative anti-war candidate, launching extensive airstrikes in Syria, quickly led to comparisons with his predecessor, President George W. Bush. President Barack Obama walks with former President George W. Bush during the unveiling of his official portraits in the East Room at the White House in Washington, Thursday, May 31, 2012. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak) President Barack Obama walks with former President George W. Bush during the unveiling of his official portraits in the East Room at the White House in Washington, Thursday, May 31, 2012. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak) PunditFact heard two different comparisons in recent days that we thought we were worth exploring. Ryan Lizza, Washington correspondent for the New Yorker summed it up in one tweet. "Countries bombed: Obama 7, Bush 4." That’s True. We asked Lizza for his list and he sent us this: Bush: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia. Obama: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria. As we fact-checked Lizza’s statement, we found little reason to challenge the nations he named. If anything, he shortchanged both presidents. There is no dispute whatsoever about airstrikes in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. Bush launched wars in the first two countries and drone strikes in Pakistan have been in the news for a long time, with or without official acknowledgment. Airstrikes in those places continued under Obama.

These illegal and immoral wars, under both Bush's and Obama's watch, are going to be the geopolitical equivalent to "Gambler's Ruin" for this country.

The last time I looked at the US Constitution, it states very clearly that only Congress has the right to declare war; not the President of the United States, no matter how "empowered" he or she might feel in this area..

He or she doesn't have the legal right to do this, period, end of discussion.

And I sincerely hope that the incoming Congress, be they ladies or gentlemen, will "grow a pair of male attributes" on this issue, and NOT allow the next President the "luxury" of acting illegally in office.

If ordinary Germans were not traumatized enough by this weekend's shocking official announcement that they should prepare to stockpile several days of food and water "in case of an attack of catastrophe" as part of the country's revised "Civil Defense Concept", then the latest news from German press agency DPA, which cites a confidential document prepared by the government according to which the government is considering "bringing back nationwide conscription in times of crisis", such as situations in which the country needs to "defend NATO’s external borders," will surely put them over the edge.

"An attack on German territory that would require conventional defence is unlikely," the document said. However, civil defence measures are necessary because a "major security threat in the future cannot be ruled out," it added.

Newly released Clinton emails show favors for foundation donors

A newly released trove of emails from Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin shows she repeatedly did favors for high-dollar contributors to the Clinton Foundation — including a foreign national with a criminal record that made her nervous.

The request involving the foreign national came from Clinton Foundation donor Casey Wasserman — a sports and entertainment executive who contributed between $5 million and $10 million — to Bill Clinton’s top aide, Doug Band, asking for “help” on May 5, 2009.

Wasserman forwarded an email requesting that a British soccer player “get an expedited appointment at the US Embassy in London this week” because he had “hit some road blocks” due to a “criminal charge.”

MEDIA WORRIED TOO MANY AMERICANS WILL QUESTION LEGITIMACY OF 2016 ELECTION, BLAME TRUMP

2016 is the year many, many Americans began to question whether or not our elections, and to a lesser extent, our democracy (insert “it’s a constitutional republic, big difference!” here) are rigged. As I’ve argued many times in the past year, there is plenty of evidence suggesting these skeptical Americans are, indeed, onto something with their suspicions.

But the corporate media has come out in defense of America’s “democracy” - and political elites are defending the system, too. In the wake of Trump’s recent rhetoric regarding the “rigged” system, the ruling class of the United States is peddling the fiction that somehow Trump’s irresponsible sensationalism is solely to blame for the newfound feelings of illegitimacy plaguing our elections.

Take, for example, Monday’s POLITICO piece entitled “What if Trump won’t accept defeat?”:

Webmaster's Commentary:

Easy.

Go back to paper ballots, and make sure it is very easy for citizens in all states to get a simple voter ID.

THAT would cure the problem, and immediately.

Americans have every right to be suspicious of the voting process in this country. Anyone remember what happened in 2000, when the Presidency of the United States was "awarded" to George Bush bu the US Supreme Court, after the debacle in Florida, as dramatized in the film, "Recount"?!?

French intelligence orchestrated Ghouta poison gas attack: Syria

Syria says that French intelligence agencies orchestrated the deadly chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta to divert UN weapons inspectors from another incident carried out by militants in Aleppo.

On August 21, 2013, hundreds of people were killed in a Sarin gas attack in Ghouta, a massacre that UN inspectors call “the most significant confirmed use of chemical weapons against civilians since Saddam Hussein used them” in Halabja in 1988.

Syrian opposition groups and their western allies claim the nerve gas attacks were launched by the Syrian government. Damascus rejects the allegation, saying the attack was carried out by militants operating inside the country to draw in foreign intervention. Subsequent investigations by the UN and Russia backed Syria’s assertions.

CLINTON DEATH LIST’: 33 MOST INTRIGUING CASES OF ‘COINCIDENTAL, ACCIDENTAL’ AND ‘SUICIDAL’ DEATHS

The Clinton’s dead pool list is growing. Three people who had direct connections to Bill and Hillary Clinton died of unusual circumstances over the last few weeks adding to an already long, suspicious list of accidents and supposed suicides.

Since the Democratic National Committee emails were released by Wikileaks a few weeks ago, three people associated with the DNC have all been found dead under questionable circumstances.

According to WND, when DNC staffer Seth Rich was gunned down near his affluent neighborhood in Washington, D.C., on July 10, theories exploded in the news media about Rich’s possible involvement in the WikiLeaks dump of nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails – some of the messages suggesting that the Democratic Party favored nominee Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders from the start.

VENEZUELA’S LATEST RESPONSE TO FOOD SHORTAGES: BAN LINES OUTSIDE BAKERIES

The tragedy of Venezuela continues unabated, but that doesn't mean the government of President Nicolás Maduro has stopped trying to fix problems like the devastating scarcity of food which has led to malnutrition, riots, food truck hijackings, vigilante lynchings of petty thieves, and the starvation of zoo animals.

No, Maduro hasn't admitted the failure of Chavismo — the brand of Bolivarian socialism imposed on the oil-rich country by his late predecessor Hugo Chavez — instead, Venezuela's embattled leader has launched a war on "anxiety."

The National Superintendency of Fair Prices has reportedly instituted a policy of fining bakeries that allow lines to stretch out their front doors, according to PanAmPost. The head of this particular bureaucracy, William Contreras, claims the lines aren't a true indicator of a severe shortage of bread, but rather, a political "strategy of generating anxiety."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One issue this report assiduously ignores is the reality of US sanctions against Venezuela, which were renewed on 6 March of this year. As reported at presstv.com on 6 March of this year:

US declares Venezuela a ‘threat’, renews sanctions against Caracas

I'm just more than a little baffled; how in the nave of heaven can Venezuela be characterized as a "threat" when its oil-based economy is going down in flames right now, because of the steep depression in oil prices?

Should we not, as an allegedly compassionate nation, actually be offering at least food aid to starving Venezuelans?!?

Apparently, what the Obama administration wants here is regime change, and badly, in Venezuela, so they are delighted that the Venezuelan people are so miserable that they might well revolt against their current government, so someone to the US government's liking can come to power.

That appears to be the game plan for now.

'US is suicidal' Turkey says America is 'holding live grenade with pin pulled'

TURKEY'S President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned America its continued support for "terrorists" will dramatically backfire for the world's most powerful nation, saying it is like "holding on to live grenades with the pins pulled".

Ankara is furious with Washington for their backing for Syrian Kurdish fighters, who have been instrumental in the defeat of ISIS in large parts of the region.

Turkey has also fallen out with NATO over its support for the Kurdish rebels, which it views as a terrorist group.

Mr Erdogan considers the Syrian Kurdish YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), considered a terror organisation by the European Union as well as Ankara and Washington.

Putin the peace broker? Russian president pushing for talks between Palestine and Israel

The Kremlin is said to be on a mission to bring Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and Israel's prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu together for a fresh round of talks aimed at ending violence that has ravaged the region.

Mr Putin's new diplomacy is likely to be interpreted in the West as an attempt to dislodge America as the Middle East's chief peace negotiator.

CHILDREN OF THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE: JUST ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL

The nation’s young people have been given front-row seats for an unfolding police drama that is rated R for profanity, violence and adult content.

In Arizona, a 7-year-old girl watched panic-stricken as a state trooper pointed his gun at her and her father during a traffic stop and reportedly threatened to shoot her father in the back (twice) based on the mistaken belief that they were driving a stolen rental car.

In Oklahoma, a 5-year-old boy watched as a police officer used a high-powered rifle to shoot his dog Opie multiple times in his family’s backyard while other children were also present. The police officer was mistakenly attempting to deliver a warrant on a 10-year-old case for someone who hadn’t lived at that address in a decade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What passes for "education" in this country has devolved into indoctrination, and a "Common Core" based curriculum almost guarantees your child will be punished for critical thinking, and for having a larger world view than that curriculum allows.

If you have not considered it before, please think about home schooling for your kids. Chances are that, when they go to college, they will fair far better, in their capacity to learn and think, than will their publicly "educated" schoolmates.

Turkey Invades Syria, Backed By U.S.

By Brandon Turbeville

On Wednesday morning, Turkey abruptly launched an all-out military assault on Syria, sending in tanks, troops, and engaging in airstrikes, in concert with airstrikes from the United States, to the northern portions of Syria near the Turkey-Syria border under the guise of combating ISIS forces. At this time, the military operations seem focused around Jarablus.

According to the BBC, “A dozen Turkish tanks and other vehicles have rolled across the Syrian border after heavy shelling of an area held by so-called Islamic State (IS). Military sources told Turkish media 70 targets in the Jarablus area had been destroyed by artillery and rocket strikes, and 12 by air strikes.”

White House Official Cozied Up to Google Before Antitrust Lawsuit Was Shelved

When the Federal Trade Commission neared a momentous decision on whether to charge Google with violating antitrust laws in January 2013, the White House was watching closely.

New emails uncovered by the Campaign for Accountability, a public interest watchdog organization, show that a White House advisor met with top Google lobbyist Johanna Shelton and top Google antitrust counsel Matthew Bye twice in the weeks before the FTC announcement.

And minutes prior to the final decision – in which FTC commissioners took the unusual step of overriding their staff’s recommendation to sue, and voted to settle the case instead – the White House official even sought Google’s talking points in the matter.

Ecuadorian Embassy Break-In: Police Took 2hrs To Reach Building Where Assange Is Holed Up

Ecuador has criticized British police for their slow response to a call reporting that an unknown man was trying to break into at its London embassy, where WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been living for four years.

The Ecuadorian government condemned the “inadequate response” of London police, who it claims arrived two hours after the incident took place.

4,000 NATIVE AMERICANS IN BUNDY RANCH-STYLE PROTEST AS DHS CUTS WATER SUPPLY — MEDIA BLACKOUT

Growing in number and spirit, the Standing Rock Sioux protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline is swiftly gaining strength ahead of a federal hearing on the controversial project. Support has spread across the country, and thousands have descended on the peaceful “prayer camps” in recent days, prompting state officials on Monday to remove the demonstrators’ drinking water supply.

North Dakota homeland security director Greg Wilz ordered the removal of state-owned trailers and water tanks from the protest encampment, despite the sweltering heat, because of alleged disorderly conduct, according to the Bismarck Tribune, including reports of laser pointers aimed at surveillance aircraft.

“People are getting overheated now already,” said Johnelle Leingang, the tribe’s emergency response coordinator, as temperatures hovered around 90º F on Monday. “It’s very hurtful.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our indigenous American Indian brothers and sisters have been treated horrifically, as this country has grown, and it is high time that when the US Army Corps of Engineers thinks about giving rights for a pipeline which runs through Indian land, that it does ask not only for tribal consent, but also gives those tribes whose territory the pipeline runs through, revenues from the project.
