Jim Willie: Dollar Destruction “Will Send Shock Waves Throughout The U.S.” - Mac Slavo

The entire house of cards is crumbling, and the empire is more desperate than ever to hold it together.

Jim Willie of GoldenJackass.com tells the X22 Report that the dollar will soon be refused in international trade, and the loss of the dollar’s status will trigger massive shock waves throughout the U.S. and around the globe.

This isn’t just the same old warning about the someday-coming apocalypse. This is stuff that is really happening around the world. Geopolitical events, narcotrafficking and megabank money laundering are all reaching tipping points; the banks are insolvent, and their operators are readying the collapse.

The day will come soon when things will never look the same again. The U.S. we have all known is dying, and the American people will be left in shambles, as desperate to survive as Venezuelans are today.

Vladimir Putin Just Issued A Chilling Warning To The United States

As the United States continues to develop and upgrade their nuclear weapons capabilities at an alarming rate, America’s ruling class refuses to heed warnings from President Vladimir Putin that Russia will respond as necessary.

In his most recent attempt to warn his Western counterparts about the impending danger of a new nuclear arms race, Putin told the heads of large foreign companies and business associations that Russia is aware of the United States’ plans for nuclear hegemony. He was speaking at the 20th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

“We know year by year what will happen, and they know that we know,” he said.

Putin argued that the rationale the U.S. previously gave for maintaining and developing its nuclear weapons system is directed at the so-called “Iranian threat.” But that threat has been drastically reduced since the U.S. proved instrumental in reaching an agreement with Iran that should put to rest any possible Iranian nuclear potential.

FLASHBACK - The FOX News Synthetic Bovine Growth Hormone Lawsuit

After a five-week trial and six hours of deliberation which ended August 18, 2000, a Florida state court jury unanimously determined that Fox "acted intentionally and deliberately to falsify or distort the plaintiffs' news reporting on BGH." In that decision, the jury also found that Jane's threat to blow the whistle on Fox's misconduct to the FCC was the sole reason for the termination... and the jury awarded $425,000 in damages which makes her eligible to apply for reimbursement for all court costs, expenses and legal fees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am getting emails from people insisting that the corporate media would never bias it's reporting in favor of Hillary (despite the on-air admission by CNN) and that they would never lie about Trump's poll numbers. To those naive innocents (or shills) this lawsuit is the perfect rebuttal.

FOX News assigned two reporters, Steve Wilson, and Jane Akre, to do a "puff piece" story on Monsanto's Synthetic Bovine Growth Hormone. But while researching the story, Wilson and Akre uncovered serious health problems in people who consumed the meat and dairy products from treated cows. When they presented their finished story to FOX, management, under pressure from Monsanto, first tried to bribe them to change the story, then fired them. Wilson and Akre sued and won, but here is where it gets interesting. FOX won on the appeal on the grounds that there is no law that obligates the corporate media to tell the truth to the public. The Appeals court agreed. In short, corporate media has a right to order their presstitutes and whorespondants to lie in their reports, and if they refuse, they can legally be fired. And THAT tells you all you need to know about the corporate media's truthfulness!

Neocons Promote War on Syria: “Drone and Cruise Missile” Strikes to Take Out Assad

Ross and Tabler’s assessment on what Washington should do in Syria has imperial motives to destroy, destabilize and then control Syria and then target Hezbollah and eventually Iran. Israel would be the dominant power in the Middle East. One of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails from December 31st, 2012 was released earlier this year by Wikileaks proved that the then-Secretary of State under the Obama administration wanted to use military force to overthrow the Assad government from the start of the civil war and strengthen Israel’s security apparatus:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dennis Ross has never, ever met a potential war he didn't absolutely love.

But were I ever to talk with him about this proposal for Syria, I would have to ask the unasked question here. There is a 3,000 lb gorilla in the living room, snoozing on the Boesendorfer grand piano, and THAT... is the Russian presence in Syria, coupled with its fighting the jihadists, along-side the Syrian Army.

How will Russia respond to US strikes of this nature?!? Do Ross and Taylor believe that a war with Russia would be a "good thing" for the US to do, to get al-Assad out?!?

Because that, my friends, is a real possibility, if the US government follows their suggestion.

And Israel's "monopoly" on weapons in the Middle East just went KERPLUNK, when Erdogan locked down the Incerlik US/NATO base last month, post-coup, and that base contains an estimated 50 to 90 thermonuclear weapons.

the US and NATO personnel may well be evacuated from that base soon; but Erdogan most probably will not let those weapons out of his sight.

Turkish scientists are very bright people; they will figure out a way to over-ride the fail-safe commands, and program them with their own security codes.

Chicago’s police review board has released graphic videos relating to the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Paul O’Neal as he fled a traffic stop. The videos dramatically capture the scene as officers fire toward the stolen Jaguar that O’Neal is in. O’Neal then exits the vehicle, and multiple officers give chase on foot. Officers direct expletives toward O’Neal as he lies on the ground wounded, with one calling him a “mother f—er.” The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office told Heavy that O’Neal was shot in the back.

Syria: CNN “Normalizes” Suicide Bombers and “Embeds Reporters” with ISIS and Al Qaeda “Freedom Fighters”

As the battle for Aleppo gathers momentum and the encircled terrorist factions respond violently to the strangulation of their supply lines and diminishment of their territory in eastern Aleppo, CNN goes to extraordinary lengths to obfuscate US connections to these terror gangs, romanticise the role of terror in Syria and even more astonishingly “normalise” suicide bombers and promote the re-branded Al Nusra as the new “moderates”.

Al Nusra Front (aka Al Qaeda in Syria) under new nomenclature suddenly become ‘freedom fighters’ (sounds familiar) and the new ‘reasonable option’ in the US mainstream media and the US voting public barely seem to notice?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The truth of the business is, there ARE no "moderate jihadists", as proven by the publicly filmed beheading of a Palestinian boy by a US-government sponsored group of jihadists a couple of weeks back.

Warning: this is NOT for the faint of heart, and is horrifically graphic.

What Countries Will Hillary Attack if Named President?

It’s terrifying to consider what actions an emotionally unstable neocon leader may do as US president, a notorious war hawk, a Wall Street tool beholden solely to powerful monied interests controlling her and husband Bill.

She’s militantly anti-Russia, anti-China, anti-Iran, anti-peace and stability. Ignore her gender and duplicitous rhetoric. A 2nd Clinton co-presidency would be disastrous - perhaps homeland tyranny and global war with nuclear weapons threatening everyone.

Nothing qualifies her for leadership, no redeeming features, plenty since the 1990s revealing her despicable record, pure evil by any standard - why she lacks credibility, popular support and trust, why common sense demands rejecting her.

I’ve said before and repeat again the disturbing likelihood of election rigging planned to make her America’s next president. She stole her party’s nomination from Sanders. Repeating grand theft in November may be baked in the cake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The better question is, should she win/steal the nomination, who WOULDN'T she attack, to please her monied backers and Israel?!?

Iran?!? China?!? Russia?!? Monaco?!? Lichtenstein?!? Andorra?!?

But of course, for people like Clinton, it's always other people's kids who conveniently get blown to bits or maimed for life in the pursuit of these endless, horrific wars of conquest.

These wars are not about freedom; honor; glory; or preserving "the American way of life".

Ultimately, these wars are all about increasing revenues for private corporate profit.

Obama at Pentagon: Syria Mess is All Assad's Fault

Two years ago this very week, in fact, President Obama informed the American people that he was launching "targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel, and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water..."

There was no chance of this very limited rescue operation expanding, he assured us:
As Commander-in-Chief, I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq. And so even as we support Iraqis as they take the fight to these terrorists, American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, because there’s no American military solution to the larger crisis in Iraq.
Two years later, the lies are laid bare. US troops are indeed fighting another war in Iraq, with the addition of wars in Syria and Libya to boot.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This man continues to lie with impunity, but even more terrifyingly, appears to have withdrawn to his own parallel universe when it comes to taking any personal responsibility whatsoever about the fluster clucks which he has either enlarged (like Afghanistan and Iraq) or Libya, where the actions of the US and NATO created a classic failed state status of its two, battling, governments.

Hillary’s Real Contribution to the Presidential Race Exposes National Security Lies

The US’s massive fedgov is based on the need for national security. But as we’ve long pointed out, many national security issues are often a kind of fiction. The Cold War itself looks increasingly doubtful when viewed in light of Internet revelations and it’s very clear that ISIS and Al Qaeda are Western inventions, HERE.

World War One was an outright fabrication HERE and Western bankers supported Hitler in World War Two.

National Security lies are created and supported by the military-industrial complex. Hillary is the better and more willing liar when it comes to these issues, and thus she is receiving support from CIA officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And don't forget Hillary can blackmail the CIA over the CIA's gun and drug running operation out of Arkansas while Bill was governor, which became the Iran-Contra scandal.

As Predicted, North American Union Returns Under Guise of ‘Greater Integration’

As we predicted some time ago in a series of articles, Trump’s strong stance against Mexican immigration is producing the inevitable pushback.

Predictably, it is making conversation about a “North American Union” feasible again, as we can see from this Bloomberg excerpt, above, stating that Ruiz hopes for “greater integration” between Mexico and the US.

When interviewed by Bloomberg, she used the opportunity to respond to Trump’s ideas, including the famous “wall.”

“We’re not even considering such a proposition,” Ruiz said. “We’re in the business of creating prosperity, creating jobs, creating more investment to detonate more opportunities for our people, as are most governments in the world. The way to do that is to go further with more integration, more integrated chains of value, and remaining more competitive.”

Obama, Clinton and a permanent state of war: The never-ending bloodshed that no one wants to talk about

Back on election night 2008 I was outside the Rutgers dorms in New Brunswick, New Jersey when Barack Obama was declared the winner. Thousands of college students poured out of their dorms and onto the streets in a spontaneous celebration of the victory of “hope and change.”

Their joy and exuberance was contagious. On that night even the cops embraced them.

I often wonder where those millennials are today? How many are unemployed, have put off plans to get married, are stuck in low paying jobs, or are still living with their parents stuck on the treadmill that is their student debt.

Eight years later, the candidate that ran on “hope and change” has provided perfect continuity with the war on terror that was started by his Republican predecessor, except the civilian casualty list is much longer and the theater of the war much wider.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, in its pursuit of these bloody,preemptive wars of aggression, in order to secure resources to which this country has absolutely no moral right, coupled with the extra-judicial assassinations of people with zero due process, appear absolutely to be engineered to create more wars.

This has had, and will have, ultimately, blowback at home.

People around the world, in resource-rich areas, do not hate us because we are free; they hate us because we have assassinated their wives; children, grandparents; aunties, and uncles in the name of control over their countries' resources, which will then be controlled by the multinational corporations which contribute to political candidates, and sold only in US dollars.

As I have said many times at this blog, as a Christian pacifist activist, I abhor violence as a tactic with which to resolve geopolitical disputes; but that being said, I can understand the anger which motivates such violence.

And as rational human beings, we cannot reasonably expect that this violence will not come back to haunt this country, either in the form of alleged "lone wolf" attacks, or concerted group efforts.

But should this happen, when it happens, we have no one else to blame but ourselves, for not demanding a national dialogue about these wars, and these extrajudicial assassinations, and how, perhaps we can avoid this in the future.

I have a very bright first cousin, who is a Professor Emeritus of Constitutional Law at a very prestigious university, and we talk every couple of weeks.

One of the things he has mentioned to me several times is that this country needs to start investing significant money with which to develop alternative energy which really works, and can power a plane, or ship, or tank.

That could make the need for fossil fuels nearly obsolete, which makes the necessity of invading those countries with those resources obsolete as well.

Can you imagine what the US government could do with the money being dead-ended into wars?!? We could develop a health-care system which really works; take care of our Veterans; fix our crumbling infrastructure; and develop an educational system which could be the envy of the world.

Unfortunately, however, people in leadership do what they know; and American leadership has been at an endless war with people all over the world for years, in order to grab resources, control them, and insure that they are sold only in US dollars.

I am deeply concerned that the only way this will stop is for this country to be so soundly defeated militarily that it will never contemplate wars of aggression again.

I hope I am wrong on that last bit, but realistically, that seems to be where this country is headed.

FLASHBACK - First "Shocking" Deposition In Clinton Email Case Reveals She Did Not Use A Password

He was asked why he had proposed this solution, and he said it was “For ease of access” and, “as far as I knew, there was no requirement for her to be connected to our system” (even though he had earlier said that her having an email address assigned to her in the State Department’s system, the OpenNet system, was “required”). He said that the “ease of access” would be because of there being “fewer passwords.”

He was asked whether doing things this way was necessary in order for her to be able to access the Internet from the State Department, and he said, ”the Internet is available” to employees at the office, just as anywhere.

He was asked about the inconvenience of the State Department’s passwords system, and he said that he eliminated her need for any passwords:

A: She wouldn’t have had a password.
Q: So the computer would have just been open and be able to use without going through any security features?
A: Correct.

Clinton Campaigners Use Pokemon Go to Literally “Lure” Voters

By Tony Cartalucci

Some could have been excused for dismissing initial qualms surrounding the GPS-based augmented reality game, Pokemon Go. The game has swept the world, but its development is surrounded by disturbing connections between its developer Niantic, its former parent company Google, and the US State Department.

But while many before could only speculate as to the reason the US State Department may have been interested in developing such a game, it appears now there is at least a partial answer...

Pentagon Won’t Pay $300 Million Owed to Pakistan

The US owes some $300 million in “military reimbursements” for Pakistan under he Coalition Support Fund deal, in which the Pentagon agrees to reimburse certain nations for costs incurred supporting US wars. Pakistan is normally a large recipient, because of the protracted US occupation in Afghanistan.

They’re not going to be seeing that $300 million any time soon, according to the Pentagon, however, because Congress recently moved to condition all funds to Pakistan on the Secretary of Defense certifying that Pakistan is taking military action against the Haqqani Network.

That’s not to say that Pakistan isn’t doing so, rather Secretary Ash Carter simply doesn’t seem to intend to certify it one way or another any time soon, and because of that, the Pentagon can get away with just not paying the money they owe to Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the US government is perfectly fine sending crates of millions dollars to Iran to insure the safety and return of political prisoners, yet is unwilling to pay a promised sum to Pakistan, demonstrates to me that we have more than a little schizophrenic thinking going on in Foggy Bottom.

One of the most valuable things you can do, as an individual or government, is to keep your promises; apparently, the US government has completely forgotten that little piece of wisdom.

PUBLISHED THE SECRET DOCUMENT: CIA raised Milosevic, and then destroyed him!

US intelligence forged their own reports about the former President of the FRY, which they at first was "polite and charming," and then enemy number 1. CIA censored all the documents on Milosevic from the moment he took the helm of the Belgrade Communist 1986 until the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999 . the "Weekly" in the new issue published an exclusive report on the CIA Slobodan Milosevic, who follow his political activity during the nineties.

Documents show that the most powerful intelligence agency in the world changed and censored their own reports on the president of Serbia and Yugoslavia during the nineties, hiding repression against the Serbs in Kosovo and creating the greatest enemy of the former American "friendly and charming" politicians.

In one document, according to the "Weekly", there is the following sentence:

Beware, Adams County: A "Sociopath" Will Soon Return to Duty

“I’m a man of faith, and I believe nothing happens without a reason,” insisted Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman after Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden placed the state’s imprimatur on the murder of Council rancher Jack Yantis. To the family and friends of the man who had been gunned down without cause by two of his deputies, Zollman recommended that they accept this betrayal with pious stoicism: “Leave this to a higher power watching over us.”

Adams County residents in the habit of praying would be well-advised to petition Providence for protection, and unbelievers who reside there would be wise to take up that habit. Sheriff Zollman is about to unleash a bloody-handed sociopath on the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To recap. One of Jack Yantis' bulls got loose and was struck by a vehicle. The Sheriff's department called Jack to come deal with the bull, which had to be put down because of the severity of the injuries. But when Jack showed up, he himself was gunned down by Adams County Deputy Brian Wood, who along with Deputy Cody Roland unloaded twelve rounds into Yantis, claiming he had threatened them with his bolt-action rifle, a claim not supported by the eyewitnesses. Having never missed a paycheck, Roland and Wood are returning to active duty. The reason for concern is that Wood himself has a long history of violent behavior, including threats to kill his fellow officers.

Manning’s Death Wouldn’t Be Enough for the State

This act of punishing Manning for her failed suicide attempt is just another cog in a brutal machine of torturing Manning for her perceived crimes. Just last year Manning was nearly thrown into solitary confinement for possession of LGBTQA+ reading material and (wait for it) toothpaste. There is no end to the control the state wants over Manning and people like her.

Because Manning symbolizes something that they want to crush: Rebellion.

And a government that is obsessed with control cannot allow Manning to live, or at least not in any real way. In this vein, perhaps the most damaging thing is that the military prison has consistently denied Manning, a trans woman, the necessary medical help so she can deal with dysphoria. This denial is in fact part and parcel of why Manning attempted to commit suicide in the first place among so many other factors none of us can even imagine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The additional punishment, unfortunately, may well ultimately lead to her suicide.

Should that happen,she may well be held up as a martyr by those who value peace, honesty, and transparency in government.

“Thinking Through the Unthinkable”: RAND Corporation Lays out Scenarios for US War with China

A new study by the RAND Corporation titled “War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable” is just the latest think tank paper devoted to assessing a US war against China. The study, commissioned by the US Army, provides further evidence that a war with China is being planned and prepared in the upper echelons of the American military-intelligence apparatus.

That the paper emerges from the RAND Corporation has a particular and sinister significance. Throughout the Cold War, RAND was the premier think tank for “thinking the unthinkable”—a phrase made notorious by RAND’s chief strategist in the 1950s, Herman Kahn. Kahn devoted his macabre book On Thermonuclear War to elaborating a strategy for a “winnable” nuclear war against the Soviet Union.

China's top court issued an 'ominous' message about the South China Sea

The days of nations jockeying for position in the resource-rich waters of the South China Sea aren't even close to being over, despite last month's historic legal decision rejecting China's claim to the majority of the region.

On Tuesday, China's top court said there was a "clear legal basis for China to safeguard maritime order, marine safety and interests, and to exercise integrated management over the country's jurisdictional seas."

The regulation states that those who engage in illegal hunting or fishing in China's waters will be pursued for criminal liability.

"This is kind of an ominous suggestion that they will be prosecuting people who enter the waters that China claims," Michael Davis, a law professor at Hong Kong University told CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the time of the Treaty of Cairo, right after World War II, these islands have been universally considered part of Chinese territory.

To consider it otherwise is attempting to demonise China toward the geopolitical goal of causing a shooting war in the South China Seas.

Although the US government would like to see China's growth and power checked in the 21st century, as well as undermine its currency, a war against China (which would most likely mean a war against Russia) would be terribly unwise at this point.

And I say this because, at this point in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome from a war against China.

The weapons procurement process in this country is nothing short of incestuous, with the same Congressional Representatives getting funded for their campaigns by the same weapons companies hungering for those lucrative weapons contracts which are ultimately greenlit by those same Congressional representatives.

Consequently, when weapons are delivered, they frequently do not work as advertised to the point of being obsolete upon delivery; are horrifically late, and obscenely over budget.

What's wrong with this picture?!?

The Battle of Athens, Tennessee - 2 August 1946

Mansfield took the ballot boxes to the jail for counting. The deputies seemed to fear immediate attack, by the "people who had just liberated Europe and the South Pacific from two of the most powerful war machines in human history." (Byrum, pp. 168-69).

Short of firearms and ammunition, the GIs scoured the county to find them. By borrowing keys to the National Guard and State Guard Armories, they got three M-1 rifles, five .45 semi-automatic pistols, and 24 British Enfield rifles. The armories were nearly empty after the war's end.

By eight p.m., a group of GIs and "local boys" headed for the jail to get the ballot boxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Posted in response to Obama's dismissing of Trump's concerns of election rigging as "ridiculous." An attempt to steal an election in Athens, Tennessee on August 2nd, 1946, triggered a civil uprising. In the end, an honest count of the ballots was achieved and Democracy restored.

Obama Can’t Believe Trump Thinks The Election Will Be ‘Rigged’

President Barack Obama on Thursday appeared half amused and half stunned by Donald Trump’s latest conspiracy theory, that the election will be “rigged” against him, failing to hide his disbelief when asked about the GOP presidential nominee’s claim at a news conference.

“I don’t even really know where to start on answering this question,” he said. “Of course the election will not be rigged! What does that mean?!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, President Obama, our Cocooned Commander in Chief, who lives in a comfortably parallel universe far from the rest of us, has never heard of the 2000 election, which was ultimately handed to George Bush by the Supreme Court after the terrible problem in Florida with rigged voting machines.

FLASHBACK - How to Rig an Election

It was a hot summer in 1932 when Louisiana senator Huey “Kingfish” Long arranged to rig the vote on a number of amendments to his state’s constitution that would be advantageous to his financial interests. Long was no stranger to rigged votes. This time around, however, the fix delivered by his machine was blatant and sloppy: his favored amendments won unanimously in sixteen New Orleans precincts and garnered identical vote totals in twenty-eight others.

Eugene Stanley, the incorruptible district attorney for Orleans Parish, presented evidence of fraud to a grand jury. Louisiana’s attorney general, the less morally encumbered Gaston Porterie, stepped in to sabotage the case for Long. Nonetheless, two judges demanded a recount, at which point Governor O. K.

The Alt-Right Is the Antidote to the Neocon Warmongering Against Russia

The roles of the United States and Russia have changed in the world following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

But this changed role has NOT been reflected in any substantial change in US foreign policy. Despite a brief period of optimism in the 90’s Russo-American relations have been strained for awhile now. And while there have been ups and downs in the relationship, reset buttons pushed and moments of hope…

The relationship can be characterized as rocky at best. But why do the changes inherent in post-Soviet Russia seem to be ignored by Washington and much of the West? Many critically thinking Americans pose the same question and wonder why the United States and Russia seem locked in yet another de facto Cold War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because the US Government NEEDS an enemy to strike fear into the American people.

Hackers turn to dodgy ads as malvertising risk increases by 400 per cent

THE USE OF DODGY AD CAMPAIGNS, otherwise known as malvertising, increased by a whopping 400 per cent during the first six months of 2016, according to security company RiskIQ.

Malvertising relates to malware-riddled adverts served usually on dodgy websites that can infect a user's machine if they visit the site. People are often tricked into visiting such sites via phishing emails or spam on social media sites.

RiskIQ logged 1.7 million malvertising-related incidents between January and June, compared with just 368,000 in the same period in 2015. The 2014 figure was 250,000, underlining the dramatic growth over the past two years.

Former CIA Chief Smacks Down Donald Trump In Clinton Endorsement

Michael Morell ripped Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his lack of experience and relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as he endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a New York Times op-ed Friday.

Morell held leadership roles at the CIA for over three years, serving as the agency’s acting director on two occasions during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. He lauded Clinton in the opinion piece for being “prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument” during their shared time in the Situation Room.

Trump, on the other hand, exudes traits that “suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous, commander in chief,” Morell wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to be desperation on the cusp of madness, courtesy of the DNC.

Whatever this man was paid for his assessment, it cannot possibly have been enough!!!

Also, as reported at zerohedge.com today, we see the following stated by Mr. Morell:

Former acting director and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2010 to 2013, Michael Morell has penned a NYTimes' Op-Ed endorsing Hillary Clinton and claiming "Mr. Putin has recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation." But as one commenter details, while Michael Morell portrays himself as some sort of bipartisan warrior, this is not true. He’s been vying for a position in a potential Hillary Clinton administration for three years now. Since he won't disclose his close ties with Hillary Clinton, we will... He was an active participant in painting the Benghazi attacks as caused by YouTube video. When Hillary Clinton says 'best information provided by the intelligence community" she is referring to her man in the CIA: Michael Morel Morell was the CIA official who crafted the "talking points" on Benghazi with the Obama White House according to his own testimony in 2014 to Congress. In emails later uncovered by Congress, CIA Director David Petraeus called the resulting talking-point language 'useless.' In 2013, he left the CIA to join a Wash DC consultancy group with strong links to Hillary Clinton. Beacon Global Strategies, Morell's employer, is a ten-person firm whose co-founders include Philippe Reines, a senior counselor to Hillary Clinton when she ran the State Department. Reines is still her spokesman, serving in that capacity in what New York magazine calls 'a second full-time job. “And if she runs again... Reines will be onboard,” the magazine concluded in Ferbruary 2014. Meaning that Morell, as a senior official at Beacon, will also likely be part of the Clinton spin machine. So with that in mind, here is Morell's Op-Ed "I Ran the C.I.A. Now I'm Endorsing Hillary Clinton"... During a 33-year career at the Central Intelligence Agency, I served presidents of both parties — three Republicans and three Democrats. I was at President George W. Bush’s side when we were attacked on Sept. 11; as deputy director of the agency, I was with President Obama when we killed Osama bin Laden in 2011. I am neither a registered Democrat nor a registered Republican. In my 40 years of voting, I have pulled the lever for candidates of both parties. As a government official, I have always been silent about my preference for president. No longer. On Nov. 8, I will vote for Hillary Clinton. Between now and then, I will do everything I can to ensure that she is elected as our 45th president. Two strongly held beliefs have brought me to this decision. First, Mrs. Clinton is highly qualified to be commander in chief. I trust she will deliver on the most important duty of a president — keeping our nation safe. Second, Donald J. Trump is not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security. I spent four years working with Mrs. Clinton when she was secretary of state, most often in the White House Situation Room. In these critically important meetings, I found her to be prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument.

Apparently, Mr. Morell is either singularly unacquainted with the fact that Osama Bin Laden died of natural consequences in December of 2001, or he is lying through his teeth; the highly staged assassination of some poor schmuck in Abbotabad in 2011 was simply a publicity stunt to make Obama look "Presidential" or "Commander-in Chief-ish".

And one has to wonder why Seal Team 6, which conducted this raid, as stated by Vice President Biden, died "mysteriously", in a chopper crash, after being fired upon (allegedly by the Taliban).

As reported at foxnews.com on 26 December, 2001:

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader. "The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said. Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.

NFL STAR TACKLES BLACK LIVES MATTER, CALLS THEM “HYPOCRITES”. WHY HE’S RIGHT AND ‘YOU MAD BRO’?

The Undefeated: What is your opinion of the Black Lives Matter Movement?

Sherman: It’s hard to formulate an opinion (not really, but continue to make sense) and generalize because they have several different messages. Some of them are peaceful and understandable and some of them are very radical and hard to support. Any time you see people ( George Soros funded thugs) who are saying, ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and then saying it’s time to kill police, then it is difficult to stand behind that logic. They are generalizing police just like they are asking police not to generalize us. IT IS VERY HYPOCRITICAL.

Sherman went on to say that he wants ‘all lives to matter,’ and for everyone, regardless of race to be treated “decently.”

HORRIFIC VIDEO SHOWS ISRAELI BORDER POLICE TERRORIZE 8-YO PALESTINIAN GIRL AND STEAL HER BIKE

An Israeli cop has been suspended after a heartbreaking video was posted online showing two officers terrorize an innocent 8-year-old Palestinian girl.

The video, which was taken last week and surfaced on Tuesday, shows two Israeli border officers confronting a terrified 8-year-old Palestinian girl, Anwar Burqan, on Hebron’s al-Ibrahimi St., demanding she stop on the roadside. When the first officer confronts the girl he stomps on her bike and berates her until she runs away screaming and crying.

After the girl runs away, another officer walks up, grabs her bike and throws it into the bushes.

According to Haaretz, large swaths of al-Ibrahimi St. are closed to Palestinian traffic. Apparently, the girl’s bicycle was confiscated because she was riding in a part of the street closed to Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, it takes a really MANLY Israeli cop to destroy a little Palestinian girl's bike for inadvertently driving on a portion of a street which is restricted for "her kind" of human, doesn't it?!?

Netanyahu will probably see to it that this guy gets promoted!!

Ransomware has left almost 10 per cent of UK firms 'unable to operate'

MORE THAN HALF of UK businesses have been hit by ransomware, according to security outfit Malwarebytes, and almost 10 per cent were left "entirely unable to operate" as a result.

Malwarebytes surveyed 540 CIOs, CISOs and IT chiefs at organisations with an average headcount of 5,400 in the UK, US, Germany and Canada. Around 40 per cent have been affected by ransomware and a third lost revenue as a result.

The majority of ransomware attacks come via a single end point, and 46 per cent begin, unsurprisingly, with a dodgy email.

What’s more, the crooks are clearly reaping the rewards of such attacks as 40 per cent of all firms pay the ransom to get the data unlocked.

Iran's Ayatollah: "The US Created ISIS"

Even as the Obama administration is embroiled in a scandal involving the paradropping of a crate of cash with $400 million in it in non-USD denominated bills to Iran, the same Iran continues to heap scorn upon the US president, culminating yesterday with Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khemenei, accusing the U.S. of creating and supporting ISIS as a means of creating conflict among Muslims and promoting a false form of Islam in the world.

In an English language Twitter account affiliated with Iranian Supreme Leader, the country’s highest authority, tweeted:

Follow
Khamenei.ir @khamenei_ir
US aim of making & backing DAESH is to sow discord in Islamic Ummah, defame true Islam & promote Wahabbi Islam which is far from true Islam.

The Enemy Of My Friend Is My Friend: Israel Accepts Billions From The US, But Maintains Ties With Al-Nusra

Late last month, Jabhat al-Nusra (the Nusra Front), al-Qaida’s Syrian arm, announced that it was severing ties with al-Qaida and renaming itself Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (the Front for the Conquest of Syria).

In a video, the group’s leader, Abu Mohamed al-Jolani, explained that the group’s association with al-Qaida permitted the outside powers intervening in the Syrian conflict to label it as an Islamic terrorist group.

The Guardian quoted al-Jolani as saying that the name change is intended “to remove the excuse used by the international community – spearheaded by America and Russia – to bombard and displace Muslims in the Levant: that they are targeting al-Nusra Front, which is associated with al-Qaida.”

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ARE KILLING US – MEET ONE OF THE DOCTORS WHO JUST PUBLISHED A PAPER ABOUT IT

“Any drug causing more side effects than benefits will not be called a medicine. It would rather be called a poison.”

Here, we are talking about antidepressants. Dr. Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence), is currently working to make the world aware of the fact that the side effects associated with the several pharmaceutical grade drugs are actually killing people all over the world. According to his research, 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side effects of correctly-used prescription drugs. He published many papers reasoning the fact that antidepressants are making people suffer with its harmful effects to a large extent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would far rather take my supplements and exercise than trust any doctor's prescription at this point.

A number of years ago, I had joint pain so intense that I could not play my acoustic piano or harp. The HMO we went to gave me numerous tests, but none that ever got to the source of my discomfort.

I was put on a pain medication by my doctors, which barely managed the pain.

However, I found out later that the drug company which manufactured this drug was paying doctors to prescribe this medication, even if it was "off book" (had never been studied relative to the kind of pain for which it was being prescribed.)

That was probably the big reason I was never given the one test I should have been given to find out what the root of my problem was; for chemical sensitivities.

When Mike and I came back from San Francisco, where he was working on a project, the pain returned with a vengeance. I went to see my orthopedist, had an x-ray done, and this man said he could see nothing in the x-ray to explain the pain I was feeling.

I remember coming home in tears and asking Mike, "Can you please tell me WHEN in my schedule do I have the time to be a hypochondriac?!?"

He did some research on line, and found out that the kind of joint pain I was experiencing frequently came from sensitivity to formaldehyde precursors, which are ubiquitous in lower-end cosmetics and cleaning products. We read labels, and threw out a bunch of cosmetics, and cleansers.

Within 24 hours, I was able to walk without pain for the first time in half a decade.

The next time I went to my orthopedist, I threw the confirming research down on his office table, and told him, "The next time you have a client who comes in with these kind of symptoms, but you see nothing on the x-rays, have them tested for chemical sensitivity! You could have saved me from unnecessary pain and suffering if you and your team had done this from the beginning of my symptoms manifesting!!"

When the Pfizer story got out, the two doctors who had been treating me either "retired", or were summarily fired from my HMO.

This is why, in the future, I will have absolutely no problem asking a physician point-blank if they are compensated for prescribing whatever drug they are prescribing for me; call it a patient's right to know.

ZIKA DOOMSDAY HOAX UNRAVELS: Predicted 'explosion' of brain defects didn't happen... entire scare campaign was manufactured

To demonstrate how ridiculous the status quo theory is on Zika, consider the fact that the documented microcephaly cases in Brazil appeared predominantly in black Brazilians of low economic status.

Now, if you believe the Zika doomsday scientists, that can only happen if mosquitoes are racially profiling people and selectively targeting black people after checking their bank accounts to make sure they're also poor. Such a belief is, of course, utterly ridiculous.

Mosquitoes don't care what color you are. All they know is that you're a warm-blooded being with a source of nutrients they need.

So what's the real explanation for the cluster of microcephaly cases among lower income regions of Brazil where predominantly black-skinned people live? Because that's where they dumped the "pyroproxyfen" chemical into the water!

Pyroproxyfen is the larvicide chemical used by the Brazilian government to try to quell mosquito populations in the poorer, more rural regions of Brazil.

In Latest Scandal, Trump Retracts Statement He Saw Video Of "Iran Cash Exchange" Just As Clip Emerges

It is unclear where Donald Trump might have caught the clip of the video, and whether or not the cash disclosed is what Iran claims it is (in light of the WSJ revelations it is very likely that this is indeed the alleged payment in question) but the footage was widely discussed several months ago when the hostages were released. The Iranian TV ran it with a title “The Rules of The Game." It was released on BBC TV during a segment discussing the release of the prisoners.

In other words, it did exist. Which is why it is quite ironic that following an onslaught of media pressure, Trump admitted weakness and was forced to deny his previous statement, even though this may have been the one case where no such admission was required.

NICARAGUAN PRESIDENT REMOVES POLITICAL OPPOSITION FROM CONGRESS, NOMINATES WIFE AS VICE PRESIDENT

While Latin America’s love of the political left has decreased as the oily money runs dry (e.g. Venezuela), one leader continues to strengthen his political grip across all corners of his country. Daniel Ortega, the 1980’s guerilla fighter who rose to fame by removing the Somoza dictatorship, is now creating his own version of authoritarianism.

Nicaragua is set to hold presidential elections in November 2016, where Ortega will run for his third term (after changing the constitutional term limits). Evidently, Ortega is the overwhelming favorite given that he banned the main opposition party from running. Moreover, last week he removed all political opposition from Congress, essentially guaranteeing unanimous support from the legislative, judicial and executive branch. He stands alone.

This week, he nominated his wife as his running mate, and guaranteed that the Presidency will remain a family-run business.

MULTIPLE STUDIES CONFIRM PEOPLE WHO SWEAR OFTEN, STAY UP LATE, AND ARE MESSY — HAVE HIGH IQ’S

Stacks of papers, books, and folders cram into every available space on your desk, you glance at the clock to see it’s 2:31 a.m., and utter a swear word — you’re up late, again, but far too enmeshed in what you’re doing to even consider getting sleep yet. Perhaps your friends perceive you as an insomniac slob who swears too much; but they probably haven’t heard the good news: Studies suggest these traits are a sign of intelligence.

Popular mythology frequently equates swearing with low intelligence, limited vocabulary, and lower social status. But a study by psychologists Kristin Jay of Marist College and Timothy Jay of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and published in the journal Language Sciences dispels those stereotypes.

“Obama-Clinton have single-handedly destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi. Then they put Iran on the path to nuclear weapons. Then they allowed dozens of veterans to die waiting for medical care that never came.

Hillary Clinton put the whole country at risk with her illegal email server, deleted evidence of her crime, and lied repeatedly about her conduct which endangered us all. They released criminal aliens into our country who killed one innocent American after another — like Sarah Root and Kate Steinle — and have repeatedly admitted migrants later implicated in terrorism. They have produced the worst recovery since the Great Depression. They have shipped millions of our best jobs overseas to appease their global special interests. They have betrayed our security and our workers, and Hillary Clinton has proven herself unfit to serve in any government office.

Hook, line and sinker, the mainstream news is dangling like a sucker fish chummed by that Shariah-espousing shyster for the Saudi lobby, namely Khizir Khan, Esq. The shameless press corps simply repeated his partisan diatribe at the Democratic party convention at face value without fact-checking or even the slightest pretense of balance. Nor was the circumstances of his soldier son's death put in the context of an illegal war in Iraq and subsequent jihadist upsurge.

Google slammed for removing Palestine from its maps

The Palestinian Journalists’ Forum has denounced Google for deleting the name of Palestine from its maps and replacing it with Israel.

In a statement released yesterday, the forum said Google’s decision to remove Palestine from its maps on 25 July “is part of the Israeli scheme to establish its name as a legitimate state for generations to come and abolish Palestine once and for all.”

“The move is also designed to falsify history, geography as well as the Palestinian people’s right to their homeland, and a failed attempt to tamper with the memory of Palestinians and Arabs as well as the world.”

The forum said the move was “contrary to all international norms and conventions”, stressing that Google should back track on its actions.

Hiroshima: the Crime That Keeps on Paying, But Beware the Reckoning

“Change” is an Obama specialty. But he did nothing to change our nuclear arms policy, except to beef it up. No sign of a “moral imagination” imagining the devastation that this policy is leading us toward. No imaginative ideas to bring about nuclear disarmament. Just promises not to let the bad guys get ahold of them. They belong to us.

“And since that fateful day,” Obama continued, “we have made choices that give us hope. The United States and Japan have forged not only an alliance but a friendship that has won far more for our people than we could ever claim through war.”

This is sinister. As a matter of fact, it was precisely through war that the U.S. forged this alliance and this friendship – which the United States is now trying to militarize in its “Asian pivot”. It means that we can wipe out two of a country’s cities with nuclear weapons and end up with “not only an alliance but a friendship”. So why stop now? Why not make more such “friends” in the same way, for instance in Iran, which Hillary Clinton has expressed willingness to “obliterate” if the circumstances are right.

BREAKING: HERE’S WHY HILLARY’S “Khan Man” Just Deleted His Law Firm Website…Backtracking To Hide True Agenda

Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that Democrats and their allies media wide have been using to hammer GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, has deleted his law firm’s website from the Internet.
This development is significant, as his website proved—as Breitbart News and others have reported—that he financially benefits from unfettered pay-to-play Muslim migration into America.

A snapshot of his now deleted website, as captured by the Wayback Machine which takes snapshots archiving various websites on the Internet, shows that as a lawyer he engages in procurement of EB5 immigration visas and other “Related Immigration Services.”

Aus PM Turnbull's sanctimonius reply to the news he was a tax dodger

Turnbull is the partner from Goldman Sacks who went into Politics to get Goldmans into the game on the privatisation of Australia's Communication systems, which has been a disaster. This is the bullshite response to being outed for paying no tax in Australia. They amazing thing is he got away with it. I'd like to see him pull that on Trey Gowdy.

Malcolm's piggy bank has grown from Approx. $100 Million to $215 Million since he entered politics so that's $180,000 a week from Wall St. Australia's taxpayers pay him a measly $7000 a week. The story the Minions of Murdock didn't tell is that his money isn't sun-baking in the Caymans, it's invested in Wall St by Vanguard, one of the big four who own every thing. He is so conflicted he just should piss off back to Manhatten where his money is. It will never be coming home.

BEX ALERT: NBC/WSJ Poll: Hillary Clinton Jumps to Nine Point Lead Over Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton has jumped out to a nine-point lead over Donald Trump, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal national poll shows, nearly doubling the five-point advantage she held over her Republican foe before the political conventions.

In a head-to-head matchup, the Democratic ticket of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine receives the support of 47 percent of registered voters, while the Republican ticket of Donald Trump and Mike Pence gets 38 percent, the survey shows. Last month, Clinton led Trump by a margin of 46 percent to 41 percent.

Webmaster addition: This is a variation on the "Trump is quitting" hoax, intended to discourage his supporters by claiming Trump is losing in the corporate media's "we changed our polling methodology" phone polls.

If Cash is King, How Can Stores Refuse to Take Your Dollars?

By Jay L. Zagorsky, The Ohio State University

We’ve been talking about society’s transition to a cashless society for a long time, but it begs an important question: Can stores and other retail establishments refuse to take your dollars and cents?

As odd as it sounds, this is not hypothetical anymore as a small number of stores and industries have stopped accepting cash and allow payment only by credit card, debit card or via a smartphone app...

Dame Lowell Goddard resigns as head of child sexual abuse inquiry

The chair of the public inquiry into institutional child abuse has resigned saying it was beset with a “legacy of failure” that was hard to shake off.

Justice Lowell Goddard, who was appointed in February last year to chair the unprecedented inquiry into decades of child abuse and its cover-up, threw the future of the huge public inquiry into doubt with her departing comments.

After a brief resignation letter to the home secretary, Amber Rudd, Goddard released a statement that indicated the controversies and challenges of the inquiry since it was set up in 2014 were insurmountable.

Clinton claims ‘consistency;’ 13-minute video documents eight huge lies, flip-flops. Americans: this is all you’ll ever get from .01% ‘leaders’ until you end this US rogue state with arrests

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Global Research’s sharp 13-minute video documents Hillary Clinton’s lies and flip-flops on these topics:

Same-sex marriage.
Whether she’s progressive or moderate.
Claimed she turned over all State Department e-mails when that total is less than 1%.
Claims she “went to Wall Street and said cut it out” while she takes money from those she claims to “criticize” (as if “cut it out” represents leadership and legal power to stop illegal activity).
Blames victims of mortgage fraud when those offering the contract are legally responsible for ethical verification.
Former universal health care support in rhetoric, then attack Sanders on that very policy position.
Claims she “mis-spoke” about being “under sniper fire” in Bosnia after being documented making the claim on five occasions.
Supported NAFTA and blocked opposition. Now claims to be a critic of NAFTA and lies about previous support.

Eric Trump predicts dad will ‘win this crazy thing’

'I think we're going to win this crazy thing,' he said.

As his father’s seemingly quixotic campaign caught fire, Eric Trump, 32, an admitted political neophyte, found himself thrust into the heart of it all. He barnstormed across small towns in Iowa and New Hampshire, gamely doing interviews on local radio stations and Fox News, all while balancing growing responsibilities to the company.

Julian Assange: “1,700 emails” proves Hillary Clinton sold weapons to ISIS in Syria

“A vote today for Hillary Clinton is a vote for endless, stupid war,” - Julian Assange

In Obama’s second term, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, and friendly to the Libyan rebels, in an effort to topple the Libyan/Gaddafi government, and then ship those arms to Syria in order to fund Al Qaeda, and topple Assad in Syria.

Clinton took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” (aka Al Qaeda/ISIS) to back the CIA-led insurgency for regime change in Syria.

RECENTLY FOUND DOCUMENT SUGGESTS THAT CIA MURDERED FORMER U.N. HEAD

If you asked a typical American about conspiracy theories, he or she probably wouldn’t have any trouble rattling off an extensive list theories ranging from the Kennedy assassination to 9/11. But if there’s one potential conspiracy that most Americans are totally unaware of, it’s the supposed CIA plot to kill UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld.

Dag had been the Secretary General for eight years, but died in an accidental plane crash in 1961, while en route to a cease-fire negotiation in the British protectorate of Northern Rhodesia. But over the years, there have been multiple claims that the plane was shot down, and that he was actually killed in an assassination plot that involved some combination of the CIA, a Belgian Mining Company, a South African paramilitary unit, and British intelligence. Why? Because he was pushing for Congo’s independence, which would have hurt the interests of any of those forces.
