Ex-Secret Service Agent: Mainstream Media ‘Blacklisting’ Me to Help ‘Clinton Machine’ ‘Squash’ Message

Gary Byrne, the retired U.S. Secret Service agent who has written a blockbuster new book about his time in the Clinton White House, suspects that the so-called “Clinton Machine” is getting the mainstream media to “blacklist” him in order to “squash” his message about how Hillary Clinton is unfit to become the country’s next President.

Byrne answered questions about his book last week at Barnes & Noble in McLean, Virginia, and C-SPAN aired the event over the weekend. His book, Crisis of Character, reveals some sordid details about the Clinton White House that he observed while standing guard outside of the Oval Office.

“They basically unleashed their ‘Clinton Machine’ on me, so to speak,” he said. “I knew I was getting that.”

UK COPS ROUTINELY RAIDED POLICE DATABASES TO SATISFY PERSONAL INTEREST OR MAKE MONEY ON THE SIDE

Between 2011-2015, there were more than 800 individual UK police personnel who raided official databases to amuse themselves, out of idle curiosity, or for personal financial gain; and over 800 incidents in which information was inappropriately leaked outside of the police channels. The incidents are reported in a new Big Brother Watch publication, which also reports that in most cases, no disciplinary action was taken against the responsible personnel, and only 3% resulted in criminal prosecution or conviction. The incidents in the data-set show that this culture of impunity has created a casual disregard for public privacy. There was the cop who tried to Snapchat a friend with a picture of a crime victim's driver's license in order to make fun of his name; another one who stalked women he was attracted to in order to gain information that would help him befriend them; cops who sold photos of confidential documents to unnamed third parties; and so on.

Quartet report biased in favor of Israeli occupiers: OIC

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has censured a report by the Quartet on the Middle East, a foursome involved in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stressing that the document is biased in favor of Tel Aviv.

In a statement released on Saturday, OIC Secretary General Iyad bin Amin Madani described the Quartet report as flawed, saying it “lacks objectivity.”

“The report is not objective while describing Israel’s occupation and its illegal policies which hinder a political solution,” Madani said.

The remarks came one day after the Quartet, comprising of the United Nations, the US, Russia and the European Union, published its eight-page report following months of delays.

They interviewed me, then refused to publish the interview

Some months ago, out of the blue, I was contacted by a major press outlet. I’m withholding the name of the outlet to protect my contact. I was asked, would I do an interview about Zika right away? I said yes. I was emailed a list of questions. I answered them.

At length.

The interview was relayed to editors.

Then, nothing.

Then, more nothing.

And then they spiked the interview. Too hot to handle.

They didn’t tell me they weren’t going to publish the interview. I had to ask. Then they said no.

Here are my answers to the interview questions about Zika and related matters. I’m omitting the questions—again, to protect my contact.

John Fund: Nine big questions for FBI Director Comey about Hillary's emails

Here are some of the most likely questions he would have gotten if he had:

You said that anyone in Hillary Clinton’s position would have at least faced administrative or other sanctions for their behavior. Would you outline what is type of sanctions have been applied in the past? Would someone like Hillary Clinton be granted a security clearance after violations of this kind?

You stated that the handling of top secret classified material by Hillary Clinton and her aides was “extremely careless.” Lawyers say that is the definition of the “gross negligence” statute that provides for prosecution of anyone who allows classified information to be mishandled. What is the difference between those terms in your opinion, and is there a legal difference?

Foreign-backed militants committing war crimes in Syria: Amnesty

Amnesty International says militant groups backed by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and the US are involved in "a chilling wave of abductions, torture and summary killings" amounting to "war crimes" in Syria.

In a report on Tuesday, Amnesty named al-Nusra Front, which is the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, as well as the so-called Ahrar al-Sham, Nureddin Zinki, the Levant Front and Division 16 as groups engaged in war crimes in Syria.

The groups have detained and tortured lawyers, journalists, and children among others for criticizing them, the London-based group said.

Some of the groups in question “are believed to have the support of governments such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the US,” it added.

The US has thwarted a Russian bid in the United Nations to put Ahrar al-Sham on the list of terrorist groups.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, for the current US Administration, "the ends (regime-changing Syria) justifies the means", even when those means include the torture and assassinations of children.

Way to go, US government; you've made this country the "Assassination Nation" in the eyes of the world!! Congratulations on aligning with such an heroic, human-rights and democracy-centric group of guys!!

Saxo Fears "Cascading Implosion" As Italian Bank Collapse Continues

The biggest theme emerging in the post-Brexit world is the evolving banking crisis in Italy which has actually been under way since the beginning of the year as the new non-performing exposure rules started to be enforced by the European Banking Authority.

UniCredit, Intesa, Monte Paschi, Banco Popolare, and UBI collectively had €119 billion in unprovisioned non-performing loans at the end of Q1 with UniCredit’s exposure being the critical piece in the overall European banking system.

The Italian banking system has around €400bn in total non-performing loans. The aggregate common equity among Italian publicly-listed banks was around €125B (as of the end of Q1) and around 75% of the uncovered non-performing loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no way to ultimately limit the contagion which will most likely hit the US banking sector from this, because of the connectedness of financial systems world-wide.

Peak FBI Corruption? Meet Bryan Nishimura, Found Guilty For "Removal And Retention Of Classified Materials"

In a scandalous announcement, FBI director James Comey moments ago said that "although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information" and he gave extensive evidence of just that, "our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case." He added that "prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past."

What is shocking is that the FBI director was clearly ignoring the US code itself, where in Section 793, subsection (f),"Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information", it makes it quite clear that intent is not a key consideration in a case like this when deciding to press charges, to wit:

When Trump Fought the Racists

And so the cry went up.

“Trump is a racist!” was the mocking cry from an off-stage Larry David when Trump recently hosted Saturday Night Live. The David bit was designed to make fun not of Trump but Trump’s critics. In this case a left-wing group calling itself deportracism.com which, without the slightest sense of irony, put together a thoroughly racist ad having children spewing obscenities as they proclaimed their allegiance not to America and its ideals but rather to their race. A chilling reminder of all those fresh-faced young Germans of long ago pledging allegiance to their Aryan race.

All of this is already old news. But there is a much older “old news” story about Trump that has now resurfaced — a story that paints a highly accurate portrait of the real Donald Trump — the guy who has no time for racism and anti-Semitism and stood up in public to fight both.

IRAQ – U.S. refused to bomb ISIS convoy because it contained CIA advisers

At the end of the battle for Fallujah, a convoy of around 500 vehicles allowed Isis fighters to flee the city to Syria.

The Pentagon refused to bomb the convoy because the vehicles belonged to civilians and they were probably transporting the wives and children of some jihadists.

However, the Iraqi army decided to bomb it, destroying more than 200 vehicles and killing their occupants.

Iraqi soldiers are convinced that the Pentagon had received instruction to let the CIA advisers, that were training the jihadists, escape.

Globalists and Neocons Prove Incapable of Understanding Reality

If Trump wants to put America first, he needs to start firing the Neoconservatives and their lackeys from the White House and putting them on trial for making Americans look really bad.

Rather than listening and learning and modifying their actions, the ruling elites stick to “more of the same.” This process clearly emblematized by the endless procession of Bushes and Clintons replacing each other in the positions of power.

China says wants peace after newspaper warns on South China Sea clash

China's government sought to downplay fears of conflict in the South China Sea after an influential state-run newspaper said on Tuesday that Beijing should prepare for military confrontation in the area.

The joint editorials in the Chinese and English editions of the Global Times were published as tension mounted ahead of a July 12 ruling by an international court hearing competing claims of China and the Philippines in the South China Sea.

The newspaper said the dispute had already been complicated by U.S. intervention and now faced further escalation due to the threat posed by the tribunal to China's sovereignty.

"Washington has deployed two carrier battle groups around the South China Sea, and it wants to send a signal by flexing its muscles: As the biggest powerhouse in the region, it awaits China's obedience," the Global Times said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is is the US government, desperately attempting to goad China into military action, which is the ultimate culprit here.

And the reason?!? To prevent the rise in popularity of the Chinese currency, some of which is now gold-backed, and not convertible into US dollars.

These actions by the US military are counterproductive to a reasonable, lasting peace in the area.

Just because something is the most pig-headedly ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government can do, in a geopolitical confrontation, is absolutely no guarantee that it won't do it.

For Obama’s Secret Wars, the Record Suggests a Far Worse Reality

Targeted killings or assassinations beyond the battlefield remain a highly charged subject. Most controversial of all is the number of civilians killed in US covert and clandestine drone strikes since 2002.

When President Obama apologised for the accidental 2015 killing of US aid worker Warren Weinstein, he revealed that the US had kept the target building under surveillance for “hundreds of hours” – yet had never known there were civilians inside. Many of the women and children credibly reported killed by the CIA in Pakistan have died in similar circumstances – though few of their deaths have ever been conceded.

Then there have been the more shocking tactics employed by the CIA. There was the deliberate targeting of funerals and rescuers, again first revealed by the Bureau. And the widespread use of so-called signature strikes during the Obama years – the targeting of suspects based not on their known identities, but on their behavioural patterns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NO public US agency has the right to lie to either the American people or the world, in terms of the real scope and breadth of these numbers; and if the American people do not, peacefully, protest extrajudicial assassinations abroad out of existence, we may well see "justifications" for practicing the process at home right here in this country.

And one has to speculate; are the perpetual extrajudicial assassinations creating perpetual war from which the US government and military will never be able extricate themselves, and is this, possibly, the goal?!?

As reported at globalresearch.com today:

It was revealed by the Intercept through leaked US government documents that civilians may account for as much as 90% of all casualties from drone strikes. In its first article in a long series detailing America’s drone operations titled, “The Assassination Complex,” it reports: …documents detailing a special operations campaign in northeastern Afghanistan, Operation Haymaker, show that between January 2012 and February 2013, U.S. special operations airstrikes killed more than 200 people. Of those, only 35 were the intended targets. During one five-month period of the operation, according to the documents, nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets. In Yemen and Somalia, where the U.S. has far more limited intelligence capabilities to confirm the people killed are the intended targets, the equivalent ratios may well be much worse. And upon viewing the leaked Operation Haymaker documents, it becomes clear that America’s drone operations in Afghanistan have admittedly very little tactical value in eliminating specific “terrorists,” and the actual “benefits” noted amid these operations is instead the perpetuation of terror, fear and sociopolitical division in targeted areas, including among civilian populations. Considering these noted “benefits,” high civilian casualty rates of up to 90% makes sense. If the goal is to simply instill fear, it doesn’t matter who dies, just as long as someone does. First Priority: Smashing Resistance, Not Stopping Terrorists It should be remembered that nations like Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan are home to fiercely independent networks of localized tribes. These tribes, particularly in Yemen or Afghanistan, refuse to recognize the authority of US-installed client governments and their existence not only undermines central government authority, they pose a direct threat to its continued existence. This helps explain another aspect of America’s drone operations that have left the general public occasionally outraged but mostly confused. That is, the propensity of drones striking weddings. In Western culture, weddings are generally a family affair with little to do with the actual community they take place in. In traditional cultures like Yemen and Afghanistan, weddings are a central community affair. Beyond just friends and family, everyone from the community participates, with various local religious, educational, political and even military leaders attending or even presiding over the event. It is difficult to believe that drone operators would target a wedding even if a specific, high value terrorist target was present, understanding the full scope of collateral damage that would occur. In fact, in a 2013 speech at the National Defense University, US President Barack Obama would explicitly claim: And before any strike is taken, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured — the highest standard we can set. Considering this, it is likely such operations, certain to incur civilian deaths, are instead approved of for the specific purpose of obliterating the very source of a targeted community’s strength and independence, leaving local people reeling, leaderless and at the mercy of the central government Washington has installed into power. In other words, the US is not necessarily “hunting terrorists,” it is eliminating resistance to the political order it is attempting to reach into targeted nations with.

This is your government, gone completely mad, acting in your name and with your tax dollars, and completely unaccountable to We the People.

MEXICAN PRESIDENT DEMANDS U.S. MERGE WITH MEXICO, CANADA

Nieto is attending a North American leaders summit in Ottawa on Wednesday to push the years-long, globalist proposal that would combine the U.S., Mexico and Canada into a regional entity at the expense of U.S. national sovereignty, which starts with joint energy agreements.

?“The purpose of this visit is to renew our bilateral relationship, to give it new life, to find ways to advance the prosperity and competitiveness of North America,” Nieto said, with emphasis added on North America.
He’s not the first Mexican president to push the NAU; Vicente Fox also pushed the globalist plan, but he was so vocal about it, the Bush administration finally told him to keep quiet to avoid negative press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the President of Mexico is DEMANDING that the US join the NAU?!?

The President of the same Mexico rife with corruption, drugs, poverty, and the assassination of teachers, who desperately are trying to get better outcomes for their students?!?

As reported at commondreams.org on 22 June, 2016:

The Mexican government's deadly crackdown on a teacher's union protest has rattled the nation in recent days, as 200,000 doctors on Wednesday joined the ongoing national strike against President Enrique Peña Nieto's neoliberal reforms. Anti-government sentiment is mounting after police forces opened fire on a teacher protest in Oaxaca on Sunday, killing at least eight. Since then, two high level government officials from that state, Oaxaca Minister of Indigenous Affairs Adelfo Regino Montes and Secretary of Labor Daniel Gutierrez, have resigned in protest of the "authoritarian actions that repress and kill Oaxacan people who defend their rights and the government’s negligence to any possibility of dialogue," as Gutierrez put it.

Is Mexico really the partner with which the US government would want to align, given these horrific situations and the suppression Nieto has visited upon his own people, even to the point of assassinating Oaxaca's teachers?!? Were it put to a referendum of the American people, chances are, that they would say no, definitively; but such a referendum will never happen.

Such a partnership will not lift Mexico out of its current state of unrest and poverty; it will, however, drag the standards of living in both the US and Canada down to Mexico's level, which is precisely what the globalists want.

As evidenced by the Brexit, such a united economic and geopolitical entity is great for the one percenters, but in general lousy for working people living under the strictures of such a union.

FBI ADMITS SUPPLYING THE DUMMY-BOMB TO ‘DOMESTIC TERRORIST’: MAN ARRESTED FOR BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT BOMB PLOT ADMITTEDLY SET UP BY MULTIPLE UNDERCOVER FBI EMPLOYEES

An update on our story from ten days ago. In case you haven’t heard the details, the FBI admits in their own felony complaint that multiple undercover FBI agents infiltrated Bill Keebler’s ‘Patriot Defense Force’ in Utah, encouraged Keebler to use explosives, volunteered to make them, and then supplied the inert explosive device for Keebler to plant at an abandoned Arizona Bureau of Land Management facility. [See our previous article here: FBI Arrests Utah Man Who Has “An Extreme Hatred For The Federal Government,” Charged With Bomb Plot On BLM June 23, 2016]

4 CELEBRATED FREEDOMS THAT NOW REQUIRE PERMISSION OR PRIVILEGE TO ENJOY

Independence, liberty, freedom. Ideas worth celebrating, for sure, only intangible constructs of the human mind, therefore, their meanings can change along with the times. And since people are extremely adaptable creatures, we rapidly normalize to ever-evolving societal and cultural conditions and values. What people consider to be ‘freedom’ today, is nothing similar to what it was even a couple of generations ago.

Here are 4 celebrated, historical liberties that people have long enjoyed, yet are undergoing a dramatic metamorphosis in an evolving world.

1. ) THE FREEDOM TO TRAVEL
2. ) THE RIGHT TO BE SELF-SUSTAINING
3. ) FREEDOM OF SPEECH
4. ) THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE YOUR OWN MEDICINE

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish Mike and I were far younger, and could be embraced as immigrants with something to contribute to a vibrant, freedom-respecting country, rather than being viewed as burdens because of our age.

But again, to those of you with skills and kids, please; leave this country while you still can. The window for such migration may well close faster than a steel trap, and way before you're aware that it is happening.

The fees for renouncing American citizenship are the highest in the world, and do not appear to be decreasing anytime soon, as an "inducement" to keep you here, and paying taxes, in this country.

And as reported at forbes.com in October of last year:

Regardless of whether it is a dual citizenship snafu that prompts someone to renounce a particular country’s citizenship, is it hard? Not usually, though requirements vary. And so does the extent you must dig in your wallet. Some countries make citizens pay a fee to hand in their passport. Some countries have eliminated fees altogether. According to Movehub, the U.S. has the highest fees in the world to renounce citizenship at $2,350.

So, for a family of 4, that's $9,400.00 to leave, and become a citizen of another country.

Punitive?!?

Hell, yes!!

Perjury Trap: Hillary Clinton May Lose FBI Primary if She Lied to Agents

In most major successful cases brought by federal law enforcement, the perpetrator is not prosecuted for the underlying crime that they were being investigated for but rather for lying to and misleading FBI agents.

On Saturday, the FBI grilled Hillary Clinton for nearly four hours as part of a criminal investigation into the former Secretary of State’s "homebrew" private email server that opponents contend placed US national secrets in the hands of foreign hackers as well as a growing investigation into whether the Democratic nominee abused her office in providing personal favors to donors of the Clinton Foundation.

FLASHBACK - U.N. Official 'Accidentally' Crushes Own Throat Right Before Testifying Against Hillary Clinton

Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton by testifying they wind up dead. In fact, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances.

Perhaps the most notable is Vince Foster. Foster was a partner at Clinton’s law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton Machine. Police ruled that death a suicide, though it is often noted that Foster may have been suicided.

Now, another official has found himself on the wrong end of the Clintons. That John Ashe was a former President of the United Nations General Assembly highlights the fact that no one is safe once in their sights.

“If The FBI Doesn’t Recommend Charges, Then She [Clinton] Didn’t Break Any Law.”

That seems to be the opinion of the majority of reader-comments at reddit.

In response to an article that presented six U.S. criminal laws which clearly describe the most basic aspect of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email operation, and some of which U.S. laws specify up to 20 years imprisonment for it, the overwhelming opinion of commenters at reddit has been that if the FBI doesn’t recommend that the case regarding Clinton be pursued in court, then she should be (for all intents and purposes) considered and treated by voters to be innocent in the matter.

TO FIND OUT WHY SCHOOLS ARE SENDING IN COPS TO BUST THIRD GRADERS, ASK THE LOCAL PROSECUTOR

Who's leading the installation of police officers inside schools and the implementation of zero tolerance policies? In New Jersey, the answer is the local prosecutor's office. A little background: police were called to a third-grade class party because a nine-year-old allegedly made a racist remark when discussing the brownies they were eating. NO. REALLY.

To All Innocent Fifth Columnists

...

But the tragedy of today is that you — who are responsible for the coming Totalitarian dictatorship of America — you do not know your own responsibility. You would be the first to deny the active part you're playing and proclaim your belief in freedom, in civilization, in the American way of life. You are the most dangerous kind of Fifth Columnist — an innocent subconscious Fifth Columnist. Of such as you is the Kingdom of Hitler and of Stalin.

CLINTON CRIME MAFIA BACK IN FULL FORCE

As this saga of judicial protection racket plays out in front of a dazed and ignorant public, the reality that a FBI criminal indictment will be accepted by the careerist DOJ “professionals” is about as likely as getting the Democratic Party Superdelegates to switch to Bernie Sanders.

Any honest observer must conclude that the system and especially the political selection process are totally rigged. So what can we expect when the nauseous love feast of gender identity female Hillary supporters just dismiss any factual evidence about her lifelong subversion of lawful conduct?

Hillary Rodham Nixon — Even He Didn't Destroy The Tapes

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus reminds us of the similarity between the 18-1/2-minute gap that doomed a presidency and an email server wiped clean by a lawyer who served on a Watergate committee staff.

Hillary Clinton should know better, know that the cover-up is often worse than any crime, for she once worked as a member of the impeachment inquiry staff for the House Judiciary Committee investigating the "third-rate burglary" at the Watergate Hotel that doomed Richard Nixon's presidency.

The end came when tapes of presidential conversations were found and became public knowledge with one tape containing that famous 18-1/2-minute gap of erased silence that spoke volumes about the cover-up of the break-in at DNC headquarters.

JUDGE ORDERS DEA DISCLOSURE OF U.S. AGENCIES USING MASSIVE PHONE SPYING PROGRAM BUT KEEPS MOST CORPORATE COLLUDERS SECRET

A federal judge ruled that the Drug Enforcement Agency must release some information sought by a privacy group that relates to a secretive government data mining program.

The June 24 ruling requires the DEA to release a list of other government agencies that use the so-called Hemisphere Project (pdf)—a secret program started in 2007 in which the U.S. government collects data on nearly four billion telephone calls a day. The ruling also requires the agency to disclose which AT&T locations are used for the program.

However, the bulk of the requested documents sought by privacy group Electronic Privacy Information Center —including other possible private corporations besides AT&T that cooperate with the government on the program— remain under lock and key.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For ordinary, innocent American citizens, the right to privacy has been effectively eviscerated by the surveillance under which we all find ourselves at this moment in our nation's history, and the judicial system in this country has unraveled into "Code Napoleon" territory, where we are all considered guilty until proven innocent.

Except, of course, if one has money and influence; then, you can just rub whatever illegality you have done into the faces of the "little people"; just ask Hillary Clinton about Comey's decision not to prosecute on the email case, and Loretta Lynch's decision to meet with Bill Clinton!!

Huma Abedin admits that Clinton burned daily schedules

Hillary Clinton’s closest aide revealed in a deposition last week that her boss destroyed at least some of her schedules as secretary of state — a revelation that could complicate matters for the presumptive Democratic nominee, who, along with the State Department she ran, is facing numerous lawsuits seeking those public records.

Huma Abedin was deposed in connection with a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit into Clinton’s emails — but her admission could be relevant to another lawsuit seeking Clinton’s schedules.

“If there was a schedule that was created that was her Secretary of State daily schedule, and a copy of that was then put in the burn bag, that?.?.?. that certainly happened on?.?.?.?on more than one occasion,” Abedin told lawyers representing Judicial Watch, the conservative organization behind the emails lawsuit.

FLASHBACK - Hillary Clinton Brags About Getting Her Marching Orders From The CFR

While Clinton herself is not an official member of the CFR, her affiliations with the organization are abundantly clear as she herself admits. On July 15, 2009, Clinton spoke to the Washington DC satellite facility of the CFR where she stated,

I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department.

We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.[5]

Former “Singing Priest” raped boy with crucifix - gets two years

A former Irish priest faces a maximum of just two years behind bars for raping a boy with a crucifix, a court has heard. The boy was between 10 and 13 years of age the court heard.

"Singing" priest, Anthony Walsh, was well-known as an Elvis impersonator in a group headed by another major pedophile, Father Michael Cleary. Walsh committed the offense, and two other rapes of the same young victim, before new legislation came into effect in 1990, meaning that the longest sentence the judge can impose on each offense is two years.

CANADA TO SEND 1,000 TROOPS TO E. EUROPE TO BOOST NATO PRESENCE AT RUSSIA'S DOORSTEP

In last week’s speech, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russian will adopt adequate measures to counter NATO's aggression. Putin also called for creation of an international security system open to all countries.

"Russia is ready to discuss this extremely important issue," he said, adding that such proposals have been so far left unanswered by Western countries.

At the upcoming Warsaw summit in July, NATO leaders are expected to green-light deployment of four battalions of up to 800 troops each to the Baltic States and Poland, along with intensifying the scale and pace of multinational military exercises. Recent live-fire drills, Anakonda 2016, Saber Strike and BALTOPS, involved thousands of troops and hundreds of combat vehicles to simulate large-scale operations in Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is, at this point, not a question of IF NATO is going to wage a war against Russia, but WHEN.

You don't have the kind of continuous troop and equipment escalation on Russia's borders unless you mean to use it.

Jeremy Corbyn Labour coup designed to stop him 'calling for Tony Blair's head' after Chilcot report, says Alex Salmond

Alex Salmond has appeared to suggest the internal Labour party coup against Jeremy Corbyn is connected with the publication of the long-awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq war.

His comments come just three days before the publication of the inquiry into the 2003 Iraq war. Earlier reports have suggested Mr Blair, the former Prime Minister, and his contemporaries will be savaged in an “absolutely brutal” verdict.

In an article for the Herald, the former Scottish First Minister wrote: “It would be a mistake to believe that Chilcot and current events are entirely unconnected. The link is through the Labour Party”

"We Won't Be Lectured" - Italy's Renzi To Defy Brussels Over Banking Bailout

With all eyes distratcted by the post-Brexit euphoria, the last week has seen a far more existential crisis accelerating in Europe. Italy's banking system is in tatters (from a EUR40bn bailout 6 days ago, to EUR150 emergency support 3 days ago, to a bank bailout and chatter of further support from pension funds Friday) but, in what seems like a clear admission that things are really bad, The FT reports that Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi is prepared to defy the EU and unilaterally pump billions of euros into its troubled banking system if it comes under severe systemic distress, a last-resort move that would smash through the bloc’s nascent regime for handling ailing banks.

Ukrainians Demand Poroshenko Dissolve Parliament Because Deputies Are "Robbing the Country"

A petition for the early dissolution of powers of deputies of the current convocation of the Verkhovna Rada was registered on the website of the President of Ukraine.

"The elected MPs are incompetent populists. They are people who do not understand the lawmaking process or work for the benefit of the state. Their activities are bogus and corrupt, and each of the deputies are exclusively engaged in robbing the country," stated the text of the petition.

Currently the petition has gathered 7 of the 25,000 signatures required for consideration by the President. There are 92 days before the end of the collection of signatures.

Germany derides 'disgraceful' Farage after resignation

German politicians and media organizations from across the political spectrum have been scathing about Nigel Farage after he announced his resignation as leader of UKIP, Britain’s anti-EU political party.

Farage announced on Monday that he was stepping down as leader of UKIP, saying he wanted his life back.

But critics have accused him of irresponsibility, as the decision means he will disappear from the political lime light with the UK's exit from the EU, which he has long sought, looking set to become reality.

MILITARY BOSS: TONY BLAIR PLANNED IRAQ INVASION BEFORE UN RESOLUTION

The decision to invade Iraq was made before Tony Blair publicly announced it 'but they were looking for a reason' to do it, the head of the Royal Navy at the time has said.
Admiral Lord West, who was first sea lord when the war began in March 2003, said he was told by 'some b******' to ready his forces in preparation for the conflict.
Lord West said: 'I think there had been a decision that we were going to invade Iraq, that that was going to happen, but they were looking for a reason to actually do it.'
It is not known when Admiral West, who served as a security minister in Gordon Brown's government and is now a Labour peer, was asked to prepare his forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As are the hands of that unholy trinity Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, the hands of Tony Blair are soaked in the blood of thousands of innocents because of this war.

Unfortunately, I am reasonably certain that just like those named above, Blair will get off scott-free from any and all justifiable criminal prosecution; the elite do not eat their own.

Leaked German police report CONFIRMS surge in child rapes by migrants in swimming pools and admits: ‘We have grave cause for concern’ 

A leaked report into a surge in sex crimes by immigrants at German public swimming pools is a 'grave concern', according to officials.

The secret report's authenticity has been confirmed by the authorities in Dusseldorf which outlines the particular worry over rapes and sexual abuse of children.

It comes just months after the nightmare scenes in Cologne on New Year's Eve when hundreds of women were sexually abused by marauding gangs of migrants and less than a month since an Iraqi migrant was jailed for raping a 10-year-old boy in an Austrian swimming pool.

4th of July: Maybe This Year Americans Will Declare Independence From Their Bankster Overlords

The fourth of July is US Independence Day, the biggest national holiday, and Americans do have reason to celebrate. They rule the world, with hundreds of bases and the most powerful navy and air force. Even the President of Russia said that they were ‘probably the only superpower’. But more and more Americans have come to doubt their independence.

If they rule the world, why is their life becoming worse? Why are salaries falling, why is the middle class disappearing, why are plants moving to Mexico or China? Why do today’s Americans not have the same expectations in education, jobs, or buying a house like their grandfathers had in the 1950’s? Why do Americans need their ships to provoke China in the South China Sea and their tanks to be in the Baltic states? Why should Americans be ashamed of the fact that their ‘foreign’ ancestors founded America?

PETER OBORNE: If Chilcot fails to nail Blair's lies, it's final proof our democracy is broken 

According to advance leaks, Sir John will apportion the blame very widely with several dozen ministers, officials and military figures coming in for criticism.

These same reports also suggest a great deal of the report will concentrate on mistakes made during the occupation of Iraq rather than the decision to go to war in the first place.

If these leaks are true, they suggest that Sir John’s report, like the whitewashed reports that have already been published, will lack focus.

There are in truth only a handful of crucial points it should address. Did Tony Blair lie in order to make the case for war? Was the war legal?

Did the war — as Tony Blair promised it would — make Britain a safer place?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FBI Director Comey beat Chilcot to the punch in proving our Democratic system is broken.

FBI Recommends No Charges Should Be Filed Against Clinton

FBI Director James Comey said today that the agency is not recommending any charges be pressed against Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Comey is describing the whole affair as terrible carelessness on the part of Hillary (good reason not to vote for her), but did reveal that Hillary did not in fact turn over all work-related emails, and that she did receive and send classified information on her private server that was classified when she received it.

Comey's entire justification for not recommending charges is that he claims they found no evidence of intention to violate the laws. But Title 18 does not require malicious intent. Title 18 includes careless and negligence as reasons for prosecution.

Comey was bought.



GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

False arrest case back on: Court sides with woman in lawsuit over being accused of stealing metal

A lawsuit by a woman who claims she was falsely imprisoned because of the actions of a recycling company and utility can go forward, the S.C. Court of Appeals says.

Meredith Huffman claims Sunshine Recycling and Aiken Electric Cooperative officials mistakenly identified her as a suspect in a May 2010 incident, leading to her arrest by the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office.

The Circuit Court initially decided the lawsuit in the favor Sunshine and Aiken Electric. But the South Carolina Court of Appeals has sent the case back to the Circuit Court for a trial.

"We have strong evidence that Sunshine Recycling and Aiken Electric lied to the police to arrest an innocent person," Huffman's attorney Robert Goings said. "The Court of Appeals agreed Ms. Huffman is entitled to her day in court for being wrongfully arrested."
