Video Shows How Mainstream Media Uses A Single Talking Point to Brainwash Americans

This week being no exception, when Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton fainted after an early exit from a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City, conservative mainstream media scrambled to theorize on the ever-deepening questions surrounding her health.

Qualifying to head the empire, after all, would ostensibly require a person in their physical prime.

On the other side, left-leaning corporate media — previously exposed for colluding with the Democratic National Committee to bathe the former secretary of state in the glowing light of positivity — was forced to scramble to explain away her sudden inability to stand, while Facebook blatantly censored coverage of the incident in its trending topics section.

WELLS FARGO CEO REFUSES TO RESIGN AFTER MASSIVE FRAUD EXPOSED

It’s not just a few bad apples. Wells Fargo, one of the largest banks in the world, has been fined $185 million by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and other regulators for secretly opening accounts without authorization from customers to boost sales goals and subsequently receive bonuses.

Around 5,300 employees were fired in connection to the fraud, which saw Wells Fargo customers receive numerous bank services they never asked for, like credit cards, online banking, deposit accounts, and debit cards. Employees who wanted to increase their sales numbers used privileged customer information to apply and/or acquire the products and services without the customers’ knowledge.

AMERICAN TAXPAYERS TO PAY MORE IN THE FUTURE TO KEEP APARTHEID ALIVE

When Yaakov Nagel, Israel’s acting national security adviser, was tasked with heading the team negotiating a new 10-year military aid package with the United States, Prime Minister Netanyahu set forth the guidelines: “If you reach $3.5 billion a year, you’ll get a gold medal,” Nagel recalled Wednesday, hours before signing the agreement in Washington. “If you get $3.3 billion you’ll get a silver medal; and if you get $3.1 billion you’ll get the bronze.”

Nagel brought home something in between silver and gold, finalizing a $38 billion 10-year agreement, made up of $3.3 billion a year in military aid and another $500 million a year for missile defense systems, which was previously handled separately.

But this Olympics-style competition was more than about money. It was also about two world leaders seeking vindication.

China warns Taiwan not to allow Dalai Lama to visit

China on Wednesday warned Taiwan not to allow exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama to visit, after a high-profile Taiwan legislator invited him to the self-ruled island Beijing claims as its own, a trip that would worsen already poor ties.

China regards the 80-year-old monk as a separatist. Taiwan's former president, Ma Ying-jeou, who favored close economic ties with China, refused the Dalai Lama entry several times after his last visit to Taiwan in 2009.

On that occasion, Ma allowed him in but did not meet him.

Taiwan's new president, Tsai Ing-wen, elected in January, has not said whether the government would allow a visit by the Dalai Lama, who congratulated Tsai on her "remarkable" victory.

Freddy Lim, one of Taiwan's most famous heavy-metal singers and an outspoken critic of Beijing, who was elected to parliament in January, invited the Dalai Lama when he met him in India last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this 80 year old, slight, gentle monk is still such a thorn in China's side suggests to me that all is not well with China's governance in Tibet.

The following articles confirm my suspicion.

Relentless:

Top diplomats from U.S., Japan, South Korea to meet on North Korea

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts in New York on Sunday to discuss responses to North Korea's latest nuclear test, South Korea's foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

The three countries are pushing for tough new U.N. Security Council sanctions on North Korea after the isolated country on Friday conducted its fifth and largest nuclear test.

The blast was in defiance of U.N. sanctions that were tightened in March.

China, the North's chief ally, backed the March resolution but is more resistant to harsh new sanctions this time after the United States and South Korea decided to deploy a sophisticated anti-missile system in the South, which China adamantly opposes.

South Korea said Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se and his counterparts Kerry and Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida will meet during the annual U.N. General Assembly to discuss putting further pressure on North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Secretary of State Kerry, South Korean Foreign Minster Byung-se, and Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida: the one thing you all CAN do is invite both North Korea and China to a Peace Conference, to replaced the Armistice which has existed over 60 years, with a real peace deal, including North Korea's cessation of expanding their nuclear capability.

Then, negotiate in good faith to get it done, and make it happen.

Of course, that....would be logical.

But I do have a caveat for the Foreign Ministers of both Japan and South Korea; the US government may well not be amenable to such a solution, and let me share with you why.

As you have noticed, the American Presidential Election cycle has just heated up as though it were on industrial strength steroids.

IF internal polls at the White House and the Democratic National Committee indicate that Donald Trump may well win our Presidential election in a landslide in November, they may very well want to "gift" him with a war (any war will do, but with the US public sentiment not warm toward Kim Jong Un, it's a good starting place, in their minds) before he has the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.

Yes, I know this may sound crazy; however, logic and prudence, and care for the real concerns of the American people, haven't been around for quite some time in American governance, resulting in:

Massive poverty:

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes

Multiple military misadventures:

U.S. troops staying in Afghanistan? New look at reduction plan

Endless corruption is leaving Iraq a failed state

Libya: From Africa’s Richest State Under Gaddafi, to Failed State After NATO Intervention

"What A Mess!" - Pentagon At War With CIA In Syria

And of course, an absolutely unpayable National Debt:

U.S. NATIONAL DEBT CLOCK

Coupled with a monumental trade imbalance:

US current account trade deficit narrows to $119.9 billion

A logical, responsible government, at this point, would be trying to fix the fundamentals of an economy gone wrong, and evaluate why the US's military interventions have been such blatant failures; but this will not happen because more military interventions will fatten the coffers of the 1 percenters, heavily invested in the military industrial complex, and campaign donations to Congressional representatives who deliver what they want, in terms of national and international policies.

Additionally, those in the bowels of power in DC believe that another war may distract many Americans from the grinding poverty to which they have been condemned through the offshoring/outsourcing of the jobs which used to underpin the American middle class.

South Korean Foreign Minster Byung-se, and Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida, I encourage you both to have conversations with your counterparts in the Chinese government, and see how far they are willing to go to reach a consensus about inviting North Korea for a peace conference. The way President Obama threatened China about their activities in the South China Sea at the G20, you may have a rough road here, but please counsel patience; Obama will be out of the White House in January of next year.

I frankly think that such a move, toward a legitimate peace conference with North Korea, will be the only way to stop a US war against North Korea, and ultimately, China.

Four Studies Find ‘No Observable Sea-Level Effect’ From Man-Made Global Warming

Ten years after former Vice President Al Gore warned in his 2006 Oscar-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth, that if nothing was done to stop man-made global warming, melting Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets could raise sea levels by up to 20 feet, four peer-reviewed scientific studies found “no observable sea-level effect of anthropogenic global warming.”

“It is widely assumed that sea levels have been rising in recent decades largely in response to anthropogenic global warming,” Kenneth Richard writes at NoTricksZone. “However, due to the inherently large contribution of natural oscillatory influences on sea level fluctuations, this assumption lacks substantiation...

For Big Pharma, the vaccine ship is sinking

The religion of vaccines is in dire straits. No matter how aggressively government health agencies, the mainstream media, and corporate "scientists" try to prop up the house of cards and keep the membership numbers high, often using intimidation and bullying tactics to coerce parents into compliance, more parents than ever are bucking the status quo in order to protect their kids from this ruthless death cult, which is increasingly being exposed as such despite all of its desperate propaganda.

A recent in-depth investigation by VacTruth.com's Jeffry John Aufderheide, for example, exposes a new effort by the pro-vaccine cult to push vaccines as safe and effective, using "regular moms" as the poster children for this so-called "grassroots" campaign. But as thoroughly outlined in Aufderheide's piece, the campaign, known as "Voices for Vaccines," is actually a phony astroturfing effort backed by the vaccine industry and its allies in academia and government.

HealthForce becomes HealthFARCE: Data dump confirms mass deception and cover-up of the death of Jameth Sheridan

May Jameth Sheridan rest in peace and find love and happiness in the realm beyond this world. He was a cherished soul to many, and his contributions to knowledge and inspiration were many. It's just sad that his own friends and family members covered up his death for six months to keep selling products for profit, denying their own customers their chance to honor his passing. The deliberate lack of transparency you are witnessing here is unprecedented and inexcusable for a company that claimed to uphold the highest standards of integrity, honesty and transparency. Any honest, trustworthy company should be open with their customers and acknowledge critical events such as the death of their founder and formulator.

Phoenix: man plows car into police officers outside convenience store (Targeted attack?)

A man smashed into two officers with his car and assaulted a third in a “targeted” attack outside a Phoenix convenience store, police said.

Phoenix Police Chief Joe Yahner shared surveillance video of the car slamming into the two officers and crashing into the front of the QuikTrip around 2 a.m. Tuesday. Footage from the scene on W. Camelback Rd. by KSAZ-TV showed an open gash in the gas station store’s front wall.

The driver, Marc Payne, was hospitalized but later booked on charges of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal damage and resisting arrest, Maricopa County records showed.

See 7 of the most breathtaking drone videos on Vimeo

Since time immemorial, the sky’s been a big deal: it’s fueled creation myths, guided important people like Galileo and Magellan, and now, humans have figured out a way to send robots up there to capture amazing footage. When done right, drone and aerial shots add volumes to a video: they can evoke feelings of awe, layer in new textures and depth, or simply cue the audience into the setting. And the world’s best filmmakers just so happen to be uploading incredible drone videos to Vimeo every day — so we thought it was high time we highlight them.

Assad’s Death Warrant

“Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link. In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.”

Ammon Bundy Totally Vindicated and Now......

The Ninth Circuit Court (15-10-117) just ordered the Federales to prove federal subject matter jurisdiction --- not just assume subject matter jurisdiction-- over property "owned" by the federal government.

Federal ownership of land may be (and usually is) merely proprietary--- meaning that the Federales are acting as property managers--- a role that does not create any exclusive use by the federal government and does not create federal subject matter jurisdiction.

This Ninth Circuit case cited above is not directly tied to the Bundy Cases, but addresses the issue of federal subject matter jurisdiction merely presumed to exist on the basis of federal property ownership.

So, Hillary, what percentage of Muslims are 'deplorable'?

Ann Coulter calls election journalists 'Official David Duke Disavowal Demanders'

It wasn’t just the well-heeled donors at the Cipriani Club who laughed and applauded when Hillary called half of Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” – “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.”

Her campaign advisers also thought it was a killer line. This wasn’t an off-the-cuff remark captured on a bartender’s cellphone. We know that because: 1) nothing is ever off-the-cuff with Hillary; 2) it was part of her scripted remarks; and 3) she’s used it before.

Now the Saudis Have Killer Drones, Too

Saudi Arabia is the world’s newest drone power. And that could be a problem, since the Saudis are in the midst of a rather nasty war.
Riyadh has signed a contract with Chinese firm Chengdu for an unspecified number of Pterodactyl drones, Saudi media reported in late August and early September.

The 30-foot-long, propeller-driven Pterodactyl, which Chengdu apparently modeled on America’s iconic Predator and Reaper drones, can fly for hours at a time carrying cameras and missiles. Operators on the ground control the unmanned aerial vehicle via satellite.

As far as killer drones go, the Pterodactyl probably isn’t terribly sophisticated—its sensors are certainly less capable than U.S.-made models—and that can mean the difference between life and death for innocent people caught in the crossfire as flying robots hunt militants on the ground.

BEX ALERT - HOW THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION'S FOREIGN BUSINESS TIES COULD UPEND U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY

If Donald Trump is elected president, will he and his family permanently sever all connections to the Trump Organization, a sprawling business empire that has spread a secretive financial web across the world? Or will Trump instead choose to be the most conflicted president in American history, one whose business interests will constantly jeopardize the security of the United States?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gabe seems to have forgotten that by law, a serving President must place their personal wealth into a blind trust. While President, Trump won't know where his wealth is invested so that it does not influence him.

Some Presidents have tried to cheat the system (the most liely motive for the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster during the Clinton administration) but in theory it is a good idea and should also apply to all elected/appointed officials in the future!

I would also remind everyone that Hillary, as Secretary of State, promised to delink from the Clinton Foundation, and as the leaked DNC emails prove, did not keep that promise.

FBI's Comey: Twitter fuels 'monster of a bias'

FBI Director James Comey lamented on Wednesday the loss of public trust in government institutions like the one he runs and blamed “echo chambers” like Twitter for making his job more difficult.
“My children, again, discipline me not to go on Twitter because apparently people say bad things about me on Twitter. But things like Twitter offer us the opportunity only to encounter views consistent with our own, 24 hours a day,” Comey explained at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event Wednesday. “There’s an opportunity to feed that monster of a bias, that confirmation bias, all the time. So it accelerates that fractionalizing of our society, and it makes it much harder for people like me, like you, like the people in here, to speak reason to folks about our institutions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The culprit here is not twitter; the real problem is governmental lying and deceit, which is ultimately found out, quite more quickly than it used to be, and becomes public knowledge.

So please ask your colleagues in government to stop lying to us; that will make life simpler for us all.

Senator: $38 Billion Israel Aid Deal Not Enough

In the 48 hours leading up to Israel and the US agreeing on a record $38 billion military aid deal, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) began to push hard against it, suggesting Congress could give Israel and even bigger aid package, and telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Obama could “go F himself” if he didn’t like the larger aid.

Israel, ultimately, accepted the Obama deal, and also promised not to seek additional funds from Congress. That doesn’t mean Graham has given up, however, and he’s insisted Congress isn’t bound by this new deal, and free to give Israel all the extra billions they feel like.

Sen. Graham now says he intends to introduce a $1.5 billion additional aid deal for Israel just for this year, suggesting that Congress would be free to keep throwing similar “emergency supplementals” at Israel every year if they want to, and saying he believes there’s a lot of support for it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Senator Lindsey Graham: your "alleged" South Carolinian constituents are looking at this attempted maneuver, and wishing that you were desiring to do as much for them as you are trying to do for Tel Aviv.

Why don't you please retire as Senator,move to Israel, and run for the Knesset?!?

Because with all of your coddling such a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons (to whom all US aid is actually illegal, under the Symington Amendment), that has to be the ultimate game plan, right?!?

This is no coincidence. The mainstream media is owned by a relatively few people and they are surely supported by others, hidden influencers for the so-called deep state. And it is this deep state that requires, if possible, the services of Hillary Clinton.

L.A. Times Stunned by Diversity of Volunteers at Trump H.Q.

The Los Angeles Times paid a visit to Donald Trump’s Southern California headquarters in Long Beach on Monday and was stunned by the diversity of volunteers who are committed to seeing him win the Golden State and the presidency.

“It was as if the whole thing had been staged, in Cambodia Town, no less, to belie the notion that Trump’s appeal is largely limited to older white males,” the Times‘s Steve Lopez wrote. In Long Beach, one of America’s most diverse cities, that same diversity was reflected in Trump’s supporters at his Southern California headquarters.

Lopez spoke with a woman and millennials of Filipino descent, a Mexican-American, and a Jewish man, and saw the “names of volunteers from the African-American, Hispanic and Asian communities” written on blackboards adorning the names of volunteers. He noted that “two middle-aged white people [also] joined the party.”

WELLS FARGO CEO REFUSES TO RESIGN AFTER MASSIVE FRAUD EXPOSED

It’s not just a few bad apples. Wells Fargo, one of the largest banks in the world, has been fined $185 million by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and other regulators for secretly opening accounts without authorization from customers to boost sales goals and subsequently receive bonuses.

Around 5,300 employees were fired in connection to the fraud, which saw Wells Fargo customers receive numerous bank services they never asked for, like credit cards, online banking, deposit accounts, and debit cards. Employees who wanted to increase their sales numbers used privileged customer information to apply and/or acquire the products and services without the customers’ knowledge.

Tiangong-2 Launch Live Stream: Watch China’s Space Lab Take Off

On Thursday night, China will send its second Earth-orbiting satellite laboratory into space. Tiangong-2 will take off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the country’s northwest Gansu province nine seconds after 10:04 p.m. local time (10:04 a.m. EDT).

The announcement of the exact time was made Wednesday by China Spaceflight on its Twitter page. A live stream of the event is also available on Weibo, China’s own Twitter-like microblogging website.

The space lab being launched Thursday makes improvements over its predecessor, Tiangong-1. According to CCTV America, the U.S. arm of the Chinese state broadcaster, some of these include the ability for astronauts to stay onboard for up to 30 days, refueling of propellant while in orbit, and a range of new experiments. A cold atom space clock that measures time with the estimated precision of more than a trillionth of a second will also be in the lab.

INFOGRAPHIC: THE REAL COST OF THE WAR ON DRUGS

THE WAR ON DRUGS SOUNDS LIKE WE’RE FIGHTING FOR THE GOOD GUYS TO JOIN TOGETHER AND TAKE DOWN THE BAD GUYS, RIGHT? WHAT IF WE TOLD YOU THAT THE WAR ON DRUGS WAS ACTUALLY BASED ON PROPAGANDA TO MAKE MONEY?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "War" is engineered to hurt the small-time dealers and users; not the huge kingpins who make millions on the trade, or the senior bankers who make sure the drug money is appropriately laundered through their banks' accounts.

In fact, here's an image from 2007 with Hillary Clinton posing with the convicted felon, Jorge Cabrera, in front of the White House Christmas tree.

Hillary Clinton took donations from Convicted Drug Smuggler Jorge Cabrera

A little more in-depth background about Jorge Cabrera:

U.S.
A Felon's Donation to Democrats Was Sought in Cuba, Inquiry Says

So, if the Clintons knew about this guy's background in 1997, the date of the above article, why were they still shmoozing Cabrera, at the White House, by the Christmas Tree, in 2007?!?

The Clintons and Cabrera are bound together by the drug money influencing American politics, and that has got to stop; this Narcopracy is killing this country.

But of course, their incredible recklessness in vetting where money comes from, is brilliantly revealed by the reality that the Clinton Foundation accepted money from countries which still chemically castrate; imprison, and kill the member of their LGBTQ community,

Hillary Clinton Took Millions from Anti-LGBT Countries That Jail and Execute Gays

And took money from countries which still allow the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation:

Prevalence of female genital mutilation by country

Accepting contributions from convicted felon drug smugglers; from countries practicing genocide against their LGBTQ communities, and female genital mutilation; it's all the same to the Clinton Cartel.

Perennial Police Problems: Swedish Cops Quitting in Droves

The Swedish police force, which has experienced a deep crisis exacerbated by underfunding and the raging migrant crisis, is plagued by severe staffing problems. If personnel loss persists at the current rate, Sweden could lose up to a fifth of its police force, which may render the Nordic country helpless against organized crime and terrorism.

George Soros Warns Europe: Accept Refugees Or Face Extinction

The refugee crisis in Europe was already pushing the European Union toward disintegration when, on June 23, it helped drive the British to vote to Brexit the EU. The refugee crisis and the Brexit calamity that it spawned have reinforced xenophobic, nationalist movements that will seek to win a series of upcoming votes - including national elections in France, the Netherlands, and Germany in 2017, a referendum in Hungary on the EU refugee policy on October 2, and a rerun of the Austrian presidential election on the same day.

Rather than uniting to resist this threat, EU member states have become increasingly unwilling to cooperate with one another. They pursue self-serving, beggar-thy-neighbor migration policies – such as building border fences – that further fragment the Union, seriously damage member states, and subvert global human-rights standards.

He Demolished His House Just Before the Bank Could Take it Away - A Truck Delievered the Remains in Front of the Bank

In the end of 2013 a man from Lovech-Bulgaria who could not afford to pay the mortgage for his house gave his last penny to demolish it right before the banksters take it away.

The land that the house was built on was not included in the mortgage so the family decided to destroy the house and give it to its new owner. The remains of the building were loaded on a big truck and moved to the central district office of the bank in the city of Teteven, where the contract for the mortgage was signed.

A Direct Threat Is Finally Issued! Now What Will They Do?

After nearly 8 years of a traitor in the White House you have all failed — DISMALLY — in your official responsibilities to uphold the U.S. Constitution. There has not been even one official overture to impeach the current criminal in the Oval Office.

Unlike one of your own — the esteemed former Congressman from Texas, Ron Paul — it is extremely difficult to find even one of you to speak the unvarnished truth.

In the meantime you have allowed a sitting POTUS to shred the Constitution through his unlawful executive orders. Every move Obama makes undermines the Legislative Branch as he methodically arrogates tyrannical powers to the Executive Branch, and especially to the office of the President.

ISRAEL BARS AMERICAN JOURNALIST FROM ENTERING GAZA CITING ‘PRO-PALESTINIAN VIEWS'

Requesting an explanation, Paz said: “Please explain if this is the correct professional approach of a team of journalists arriving to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Isn’t supporting ‘Palestine’s resistance’ already taking side(s) in the most biased way can be (sic) imagined?”

“US issues biggest military aid package ever to Israel, $38 billion to ensure apartheid & brutal occupation continues,” reads the second tweet shared by Paz in his email. “Please explain if this too falls under professional, unbiased journalism, or is it pro-Palestinian activism,” the Israeli foreign press chief asks.

Last week Paz told Martin that her press pass to enter the Palestinian Gaza Strip was put on hold pending an investigation by his department about teleSUR cooperating with Iran’s state-run media outlet, HispanTV, a country branded an “enemy state” by Israel.

Netanyahu’s Ethnic Cleansing Blood Libel

Bibi Netanyahu’s latest outrage is this video in which he ever so innocently professes bafflement that Palestinians would oppose Israeli settlements. Why, he asks, if 2-million “Arabs” (the actual number is 1.8-million) live in Israel proper, can’t Jews live in Palestine?

There is a wee-small problem with this analogy: approximately 600,000 Israeli Jews live in settlements. But they have lived in them for at best a generation, while Palestinian have lived in Israel for centuries. The vast bulk of settlers moved to Palestine since 1967, while Palestinians have lived in Israel over a vastly longer span. Nor have Palestinians displaced anyone over this period. While Israeli settlers have literally stolen the land out from under the Palestinian natives.

Oliver Stone: Any NSA attacks on ‘Snowden’ would have been stupid

On Sept.15, the movie “Snowden,” directed by the iconic filmmaker Oliver Stone, will hit the screens in Russia, a day before it opens in the United States. Even for a filmmaker of Stone’s scale, taking on such a recent and controversial topic was difficult – the film was in the works for two years. But the subject matter was right up Stone’s alley, with its combination of political intrigue, government plots and, in the center of it all, a disillusioned American patriot. Stone spoke with Igor Dunaevsky, Rossiyskaya Gazeta’s Washington, DC correspondent, about the making of the film and his ongoing suspicions. As Stone warned Dunaevsky at the beginning of the conversation, which took place via telephone: “I’m sure we’re being tapped or whatever. The interview could be overheard as well. So I think we should be careful as much as possible. You tell me what you need, and I’ll do my best”...

EU Council admits link between Russian company, MH17 crash unestablished

Council on Tuesday admitted the absence of whatever established connections between the Russian corporation Almaz-Antei and the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine in July 2014, the corporation’s Deputy Director General for legal issues and corporate policies, Vladimir Konovalov, told TASS. EU Council representatives made the admission at court hearings on the corporation’s lawsuit, wherein it demanded the repeal of sanctions against it as ungrounded and the unfreezing of its European assets. The hearings were held in the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, which will pass a ruling on the lawsuit before the yearend. "The EU representative stated that the sanctions didn’t come across as a punitive measure but meant much rather an assessment of risks and a precaution for the future," Konovalov said. "It’s plainly obvious this position is political, not legal. New hearings haven’t been appointed so far but they still can be appointed".

Interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile warned against perusing the documents released in the latest DNC hack, alleging that they could have viruses which damage your computer.

Brazile urged caution for anyone attempting to download the documents, "given the potential malware risks." At the same time, she said the hack was carried out by the Russians, particularly the infamous hacker Guccifer 2.0, the same hacker who released DNC documents right before the Democratic National Convention in July, leading to the resignation of Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The DNC is the victim of a crime — an illegal cyberattack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party and progressive groups in an effort to influence the presidential election," Brazile declared in a statement Tuesday. "We have been anticipating that an additional batch of documents stolen by Russian agents would be released."

Germany to deprive the refugee status for holidays in countries that they left

German media resources have noted a strange tendency: after obtaining asylum in Germany, unemployed refugees decide to leave Europe for the countries that they left because of persecution to have a rest there. Most of such destinations are Syria, Afghanistan and Lebanon. It is worth mentioning that the German law allows unemployed persons to leave the territory of the country for 21 days in a year in total. A person who wants to leave the country has to inform only about the duration of the departure, but not the direction. Many migrants use these system for their personal purposes. "Such cases are taking place", - admitted the Press Secretary of the German Federal Employment Agency. The agency doesn't provide any statistics on the issue. According to the EU legislation, all refugees who go to the countries where they were persecuted lose the refugee status.

FRIENDS OF HILLARY SAY SHE HAS PARKINSON'S

Hillary Clinton has stage-three Parkinson’s disease and suffers from seizures, according to three sources who have had a personal relationship with the Democratic Party presidential nominee.

The sources, who spoke to WND on condition of anonymity, explained that her seizures or dizzy spells can be triggered by being out in the sun, such as apparently occurred Sunday when she was videoed collapsing as she was escorted into her limousine in New York City.

After the episode Sunday, the Clinton campaign announced she had been diagnosed on Friday with pneumonia.

However, images captured at the 9/11 memorial Sunday showed Clinton apparently being asked by a medical professional to squeeze her fingers, a test that would indicate she suffers from a neurological disease such as Parkinson’s.

Meanwhile, a Republican state legislator in New Hampshire said Monday he believes Clinton has Parkinson’s.

German foreign minister visits junta-occupied Donbass

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier will visit Kramatorsk in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, the German foreign ministry has announced. Earlier on Wednesday, the deputy commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic operative command, Eduard Basurin, stated that the situation in Donbass has sharply deteriorated. Even based on this extremely limited information, the conclusion can be drawn that the Western members of the “Normandy Four” are taking a unilateral position in support of Kiev. The French foreign minister, however, was not such a hypocrite and limited his trip only to Kiev. Steinmeier’s visit to Kramatorsk in the rear represents a cheap re-enactment of attempts at an “objective analysis of the situation” in the conflict zone. In fact, he is guaranteed to see nothing but a costume play and “peacekeeping” prop put on by the Kiev government with no opportunity to meet reality.
