Questions for Hillary Clinton - By Judge Andrew Napolitano

I have publicly advised members of Congress that they should not ask any questions of Clinton; instead, they should have a prominent attorney who is her equal in intellect and knowledge of the law yet is a fierce, experienced cross-examiner do so. But the lure of TV cameras will probably cause the committee members to reject my advice. As well, some of the committee members are lawyers, and the committee’s chairman, Rep.

Germany should build a fence against refugees, says chief of German police union

The chief of the German police union has called for a fence along the country's border to set "an example" for other countries amid the ongoing refugee crisis.

Opposing Chancellor Angela Merkel's stance of welcoming those fleeing war, Rainer Wendt signalled his desire that Germany follow the Hungarian approach of building a wall, in the interview with the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

He said this was necessary to keep "internal order" in the country, and said social unrest was likely if Ms Merkel pursued her policy of open borders.

The violence surrounding anti-immigration sentiments in Germany has been increasing, setting off a new level of concern. Violent incidents included the stabbing of a politician overseeing refugees, a veiled call to reopen concentration camps at an anti-immigration rally of nearly 200,000 people, arson attacks on refugee shelters, threats made to local officials responsible for feeding and housing migrants and mock gallows -- with nooses labeled for Merkel and her deputy and leader of Social Democrats Sigmar Gabriel -- were even erected at an anti-immigration event last week.

Skull and Bones Member John Kerry: Bar Global Warming Skeptics From Elected Office

Here's the gaseous statement that elicited our playground response, made Wednesday by Kerry from his Climate and Clean Energy Investment Forum, as recorded by Talk Radio News Service:

"But when I hear a United States senator say, 'I'm not a scientist so I can't make a judgment,' or a candidate for president for that matter, I'm absolutely astounded. I mean, it's incomprehensible that a grownup who has been to high school and college in the United States of America disqualifies themselves because they're not a scientist when they've learned that the Earth rotates on its axis, but they're not a scientist; where they've learned that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and it does so 24 hours a day; and you can run the list of things that we know science tells us happens, and we accept it every single day.

The Oct. 3 attack on the compound in Kunduz city, which killed at least 22 patients and hospital staff, should be investigated as a possible war crime, said Christopher Stokes, general director of Doctors Without Borders, which is also known by its French abbreviation MSF.

Microsoft wants US government to obey EU privacy laws

Microsoft has published a blog post by Brad Smith, the company's president and chief legal officer, on the implications of the collapse of the Safe Harbour arrangement between the EU and US. In the post, Smith calls for the US government to agree that "it will only demand access to personal information that is stored in the United States and belongs to an EU national in a manner that conforms with EU law, and vice versa."

Smith declares that "privacy really is a fundamental human right," and points out that privacy rights are not meaningful if they change every time that data moves from one jurisdiction to another. "Individuals should not lose their fundamental rights simply because their personal information crosses a border. While never stated quite this directly, this principle underlies every aspect of the European Court’s decision, and it makes sense."

Elected with a decisive majority, Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada have been given a mandate for change. Canadians were no doubt sick of the divisive politics, our crumbling international reputation, our fragile resource-burdened economy, and a government who was relentless in its bidding for Big Oil.

The Secret Memo: Tony Blair’s Iraq Role Will “Follow Him to His Grave.”

The fact that Blair has gone on to amass a fortune since leaving office in 2007 – through his role as adviser to various governments around the world, some with egregious human rights records; his role as a consultant to an international bank, a Saudi oil company, and as a speaker at various corporate and international business gatherings – many find especially repugnant. What these memos prove is that Tony Blair was blinded by the power of Washington, desperate to bask in its favors and prestige, determined in the process to become a political player on the international stage. Instead he has become a laughing stock, particularly in the UK, where public revulsion of him is widely felt, indeed it is now a toss-up between him and Margaret Thatcher over which is the most loathed British prime minister in the country’s recent history.

Twenty-First-Century Fascism

Globalization of trade and central banking has propelled private corporations to positions of power and control never before seen in human history. Under advanced capitalism, the structural demands for a return on investment require an unending expansion of centralized capital in the hands of fewer and fewer people. The financial center of global capitalism is so highly concentrated that less than a few thousand people dominate and control $100 trillion of wealth.

The few thousand people controlling global capital amounts to less than 0.0001 percent of the world’s population. They are the transnational capitalist class (TCC), who, as the capitalist elite of the world, dominate nation-states through international trade agreements and transnational state organizations such as the World Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, and the International Monetary Fund.

Putin's next move towards multipolar world: South Ossetia

South Ossetian President Leonid Tibilov has recently announced an intention to conduct a referendum in the country to join the Russian Federation. According to Tibilov, reunification with Russia has been a longstanding dream of the South Osetian people. Moscow has not been showing friendly attitude to such statements on post-Soviet space lately, but in this case, Russia made an exception. "Political reality prompts us to make our historical choice. We must reunite with brotherly Russia to ensure security and prosperity for our republic and our people for centuries to come," Tibilov said. Moscow does not welcome statements about reunification after the referendum in Crimea. Russia halted such referendums in the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk. Transdniestria was recommended not to bother on the subject as well, even though the republic approved an adequate bid in 2006. Leonid Tibilov made the statement after the meeting with presidential aid Vladislav Surkov.

Europe to use army to protect borders from migrants

On October 21, the parliament of Slovenia approved the use of army units for border protection to limit the influx of migrants from the Middle East. According to Interfax, the Slovenian government announced that the number of refugees had exceeded at the capacity of the state to accept them. As many as 19,400 refugees have entered the 2-million-strong Slovenia since Saturday. The number of refugees has grown considerably after Hungary closed its borders. Prime Minister of Slovenia Miroslav Cerar stated that said that the government of Slovenia was going to apply for financial and material assistance from the EU. Hungary is suffering from the influx of migrants from the Middle East and Afghanistan. The refugees use Hungary as a transit state on the way to Germany. Budapest was forced to build a wall on the border with Serbia to restrict the flow of migrants. Another wall is currently under construction between Croatia and Slovenia.

KILLING OFF COMMUNITY BANKS — INTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF DODD-FRANK?

The Dodd-Frank regulations are so lethal to community banks that some say the intent was to force them to sell out to the megabanks. Community banks are rapidly disappearing — except in North Dakota, where they are thriving. At over 2,300 pages, the Dodd Frank Act is the longest and most complicated bill ever passed by the US legislature. It was supposed to end “too big to fail” and “bailouts,” and to “promote financial stability.” But Dodd-Frank’s “orderly liquidation authority” has replaced bailouts with bail-ins, meaning that in the event of insolvency, big banks are to recapitalize themselves with the savings of their creditors and depositors. The banks deemed too big are more than 30% bigger than before the Act was passed in 2010, and 80% bigger than before the banking crisis of 2008. The six largest US financial institutions now have assets of some $10 trillion, amounting to almost 60% of GDP; and they control nearly 50% of all bank deposits.

Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Meqdad blasted Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid bin al-Attiyah on Wednesday for threatening his country, and warned that Damascus will give an utterly harsh response to any foreign aggression. Meqdad's remarks came after the Qatari foreign minister said on Tuesday that “Qatar has been looking for alternatives under the United Nations umbrella to save the Syrian people" and using military option in Syria with the help of Saudi Arabia and Turkey is possible. "Our response to any aggression will be very hard," Meqdad said on Wednesday. He said the role of Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey in the destruction of Syria is completely evident, and reiterated, "Syria will defend its sovereignty against any country that wants to support massacre and terrorism." The Syrian deputy foreign minister underlined that Syria will not be an easy target for Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

What Congress Should Ask Hillary Clinton

There are dozens of Hillary Clinton scandals that I have no wish to minimize. But how is it that her habits of secrecy themselves attract more interest than the secrets already exposed?

Here is someone who has allowed shipments of weapons to countries that effectively paid her bribes. Last May the International Business Times published an article by David Sirota and Andrew Perez with the headline "Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department."

As the article recounts, Clinton approved a massive weapons sale to Saudi Arabia, almost certainly involving weapons since used to bomb innocent families in Yemen, despite official State Department positions on Saudi Arabia and, I might add, in apparent violation of the Arms Export Control Act.

Wrecks of three ships that were part of the Arctic convoy PQ-17, which the forces of the Third Reich destroyed on high seas in July 1942, have been found on the seafloor in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) said. The wrecks were traced by the staff members of the national cartographical office who were researching the seafloor close to the Norwegian-Russian border. Sonars helped the mappers to identify the shipwrecks up to 140 meters long and 21 meters wide at the depth of 200 to 300 meters. The ships were identified as The Honomu and The Carlton, both of the U.S., and the Earlston of Britain. The wrecks lie inside the former so-called ‘gray zone’ of the Barents Sea that was opened for research only after 2010 when Norway and the USSR settled the decades-old dispute regarding the sovereign rights to that area.

School Sends 6-Year-Old Girl Home in Nothing But Underwear and a T-Shirt

When a six-year-old with medical issues had an accident at Belle Terre Elementary School in Palm Coast, the school didn’t call her parents to come bring a change of clothes or even just send her home in her wet, soiled pants.

No, the school, in its infinite wisdom, sent the humiliated little girl home on the bus in her underwear.

According to the father, who has now hired a lawyer after the school apparently told him something to the effect of, “Well, we thought her shirt was long enough to just send her home like that,” the little girl had the accident in the first place because the teacher ignored her request to go to the bathroom when she needed to.

Russia’s counter-sanctions painful for EU — Hungary FM

"As we are part of the European Union, we must share the common views," Szijjarto said in an interview with the Russian television channel Lifenews. "Implementation of the Minsk Agreements on Donbas in full may become a prerequisite for the lifting of sanctions. We hope this will happen soon, as Russia’s counter-sanctions are very painful for Europe," he said.

"The communications reconnaissance data suggest that the commanders of several large units of the Jabhat Al-Nusra terrorist group have started negotiations with the Islamic State commanders on the unification of forces for containing the advancing Syrian government troops," Konashenkov said. It was also reported that an air strike was carried out by Russian warplanes against the site of gathering of leaders the terrorist groups operating in the area of the town of Sarmin in Syria’s Idlib province. According to the spokesman, "on October 19, intercepted radio exchanges provided information about the planned gathering of the leaders of armed groups" operating in the area of Sarmin. Konashenkov noted that "after additional verification of this information through other channels, identifying the time and place of the meeting, a decision was made to carry out a strike on the site of gathering of terrorist leaders."

Russian planes hit 83 IS targets in Syria over past 24 hours — Defense Ministry

"The planes of Russia’s aviation group in Syria made 46 sorties against 83 infrastructure facilities of the IS terrorist organization over the past 24 hours," Konashenkov said. The planes hit targets in the provinces of Idlib, Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor, Damascus, Hama.

Two nearby trucks that delivered dozens of tons of explosives were also destroyed. A field camp of the Jabhat al-Nusra group was also found during the aerial reconnaissance in the town of Khan Shaykhun in the Al-Ghab plain. "The airstrike of Su-25 fighter jets on this facility with its infrastructure - these are places for accommodating gunmen, warehouses and vehicles of terrorists - was destroyed," Konashenkov said. An Islamic State command and observation post in Syria's Idlib province was destroyed as well.

London refuses to give Russia information on IS positions in Syria — Russia’s ambassador

"We are actively working with the British on the Syrian issue. And my contacts in the Foreign Office show that so far this work has not been very successful," Yakovenko said. According to the ambassador, during the last meeting in the British Foreign Office about a week ago he raised the issue of "Britain’s collaboration with us in terms of identifying the targets to be hit in Syria to destroy the IS." "Unfortunately, I received a negative answer. The British said they would not cooperate with us on this issue," Yakovenko said. He added that he had asked the British side, on behalf of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, to provide contact information of the Free Syrian Army for conducting negotiations. "The answer was negative," he said. "The British side was not prepared to talk to us on this issue as well. I was told that Russian Deputy Foreign Minister [Mikhail] Bogdanov knew well all moderate opposition, therefore there is no need to say once again who to do business with."

NATO Begins Dress Rehearsal for Europe-wide War

More than 35,000 troops are participating in NATO’s month-long Trident Juncture war games, along with some 140 warplanes and 60 warships. The militaries of 30 different capitalist governments aligned with the NATO alliance are involved.

Massive NATO drills are taking place in Italy, Spain and Portugal. The drills are designed to prepare the NATO powers for large-scale strategic warfare outside the boundaries of the NATO countries, according to NATO officials.

The main focus of the NATO drills is to prepare for comprehensive strategic warfare spanning broad stretches of the Eurasian landmass, comments from NATO officers have made clear.

“Trident Juncture 2015 will demonstrate NATO’s new increased level of ambition in joint modern warfare and will showcase a capable, forward-leading Alliance,” NATO’s command center said in a statement Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is about one thing, and one thing only: war with Russia.

As with the US, just because an action would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing NATO could do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that NATO, prodded and poked by the US government, won't do it.

And why war, and why now?!?

The economy is collapsing around our ankles; and rather than the US government admitting that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing was yet another epic fail by the private central banks which comprise the Fed, this coming, global war is the only thing they can think of to misdirect the anger of the American public at this collapse away from its designers,and toward a trumped-up enemy which is now being utterly vilified by the corporate whorespondents.

And if you want a very real-world demonstration of just how "brilliantly" NATO is working, please take a look at their joint occupation of Afghanistan with the US, 14 years on; the current state of that country tells it all.

LA prosecutors won't charge Saudi sheik with multiple sexual assaults because “insufficient evidence”

Prosecutors for the county of Los Angeles say they will not file charges against a Saudi prince recently arrested for sexual assault at a gated mansion on the edge of Beverly Hills.

Palestinian families in East Jerusalem evicted amid rising tensions

Israeli police on Monday helped settlers carry out the eviction of a Palestinian extended family in East Jerusalem, which has been occupied by Israel since the war of June 1967. The involvement of the police was seen by local organizations as signaling an escalation of evictions and a potential flashpoint.

“A large police force was deployed [Monday] morning to evict the Abu Nab family. Street was put under curfew,” Betty Herschman, the international relations and advocacy director for Ir Amin, a nonprofit advocacy group in Jerusalem that monitors settlement activity, told Al Jazeera.

The Abu Nab family’s eviction was the result of a law that allows Jewish citizens — but not Palestinians — to reclaim properties lost during the 1948 war. Israel’s Supreme Court ruled April 16, 2015, in favor of the Abu Nabs’ eviction and said Jewish settlers could reclaim property that had been owned by a Yemenite Jewish community in the 19th century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are going to see a wave of this kind of annexation in East Jerusalem, most probably with hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinian families thrown into the streets.

Israeli Checkpoints Block Palestinian Access to Hospitals in East Jerusalem

A massive Israeli crackdown on Palestinian unrest, particularly in occupied East Jerusalem, has left hundreds of people wounded, and ever-growing restrictions of movement on the Arab population there and elsewhere. Either situation would be problematic, but combined the situation is getting much, much worse.

This huge influx of new patients threatens to overwhelm hospitals which are suddenly surrounded with checkpoints, and which Israeli security forces are heavily restricting access to. Even the doctors and other staff at these hospitals are struggling to get to work.

For patients, in many cases, it’s nearly impossible, with people who used to live less than 10 minutes from the hospital finding waits of an hour or more just to get around a military checkpoint, and report Israeli troops firing live rounds at them as they try to get wounded relatives to receive care.

Gen. Dunford claimed to have been told this in meetings with Iraqi PM Hayder Abadi, even though Abadi has publicly insisted, repeatedly, that he “would welcome” Russian airstrikes against ISIS and indeed would welcome help from any country willing in the battle.

For the First Time, Japan Finally Admits Fukushima Radiation Caused a Former Worker’s Cancer

Despite the fact that Fukushima children are showing 50 times the normal rates of thyroid cancer, and other former employees who have come down with, in some cases, multiple types of cancer are suing TEPCO for damages in relation to the 2011 disaster, up until now neither TEPCO, nor the Japanese government have officially admitted that radiation released from the destroyed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor could be responsible.

Well now Japan has officially acknowledged for the first time that a case of leukemia in one of the plant’s former workers “meets the conditions” to be recognized as caused by Fukushima radiation, according to a Japanese Ministry of Health official at a recent press conference.

This is a big deal. The Japanese government didn’t even admit this possibility when Masao Yoshida, the director of the plant at the time of the accident until six months after the fact, later died of cancer.

In Other Countries, It Wouldn't Be 'Too Late' For Biden To Run

If Vice President Joe Biden had announced his presidential candidacy today, he would have entered the race with 384 days until Election Day. But he said it was too late for him to be competitive.

Here's the thing: 384 days is an absurdly long time.

At least, it is when you compare American campaigns to those in other countries. The U.S. doesn't have an official campaign season, but the first candidate to jump into the presidential race, Ted Cruz, announced his candidacy on March 23 — 596 days before Election Day.
Whether you measure from the first candidate's entry or the first caucus, the U.S. campaign season is way longer than many other countries'.

Air Force Confiscates Private Property Near Area 51

Last month, a family living near Area 51 reached out to the media, and revealed that not only has the US government harassed them for decades, but they’ve tried to confiscate the land which has been in their family since the 19th century. Now the Sheahan family’s struggle is coming to an end, as the government finalizes the transfer of their property to the US Air Force.

The government offered what would appear to be a generous sum of $5.2 million for the land, but the family turned it down. They believe that the property is worth way more than that. “I have a geologist friend who I took out there, who’s just a buff, and he said it is literally almost priceless” according to Barbara Sheahan “There is so much there, not only the ore which is in the ground that can be mined, but in all the intrinsic value of what’s on the land.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US government has resolved to confiscate private land, there is nothing it won't do to accomplish that goal; at that point, alleged "property rights" become meaningless.

Indeed, a massive effort comparable to the attempts of breaking the German Enigma coding machine during the World War II seems to have given the NSA the tools required to break trillions of secure connections.

Lawsuit: Obama Administration Withholding Draft of Clinton Whitewater Indictment By Brendan Bordelon

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to obtain copies of a 20-year-old draft indictment against Hillary Clinton for her role in the Whitewater scandal. In a press release sent to reporters late on Tuesday, Judicial Watch announced its intent to file a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against NARA for withholding an indictment written by Hickman Ewing, Jr., the deputy independent counsel and prosecutor investigating Whitewater, in 1996. The agency admitted it had found the records in March 2015 but is withholding the documents, claiming their release would constitute an unwarranted invasion of Clinton’s privacy.

BBC implies Palestinian dead are Israeli

A prime example this week was a segment on the BBC’s flagship radio news program Today. On 19 October it broadcast a four-minute chat between veteran presenter John Humphrys and one of its Middle East correspondents, Kevin Connolly.

With 42 Palestinians killed at that time, and thousands more injured in attacks by settlers and soldiers, Humphrys began his conversation with Connolly like this: “Yet another attack on Israelis last night. This time an Arab man with a gun and a knife killed a soldier and wounded 10 people. Our Middle East correspondent is Kevin Connolly. The number is mounting, isn’t it Kevin? The number is about 50 now, isn’t it?”

Not only does Humphrys’ introduction make it sound as though only Israelis are being attacked, he quite extraordinarily implies that the 50 who had been killed since the beginning of the month were all Israelis.

How The White House And Paul Ryan Are Making Sure Forced Labor Remains Part Of Their Trade Deal

The House of Representatives will quickly get down to unfinished business once it returns from the holiday recess: defending trading partners that engage in slavery.

Obama says that slavery stays,

That the President, of all people, and Paul Ryan are the "fixers" to enable Malaysia in this manner, and assure the continued use of slave labor, against which US markets cannot possibly compete, boggles the mind.

Again, The Nonsense....

Yes, exponents are great when they work for you. But here's the problem: There is no such thing as infinite compound growth when you live in a place of fixed size.

The Planet Earth is of fixed size, mass and resource.

So what has driven this mantra?

Simple: A 30ish year cycle of generally falling interest rates which made financial leverage "profitable."

That cycle has now ended.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Karl explains what the FED's zero interest rate policy means to the prospect of economic expansion. The dilemma arises from the fact that most pension funds are comprised of laddered Treasury bonds and municipal bonds whose returns are reduced over time as the FED's rates decline. The steady decline of interest income means they cannot meet their 8% claimed returns. Jim Willie & a few other knowledgeable folks said years ago that once ZIRP was reached, there was no way out. The incentive to save money by traditional means has been eliminated, since putting money into CDs or a bank savings account means you lose purchasing power when price inflation is computed. Of course, that's what Keynesian morons want; they think saving is bad because it reduces current consumption, which is their be-all & end-all. Of course, this is destructive long-term, because the only way to build a base for future growth is by saving something from current production (meaning postponing some current consumption & therefore gratification) to use for investment.

CLINTON STATE DEPARTMENT APPROVED U.S. WEAPONS SHIPMENT TO LIBYA DESPITE BAN

The State Department initially approved a weapons shipment from a California company to Libyans seeking to oust Moammar Gadhafi in 2011 even though a United Nations arms ban was in place, according to memos recovered from the burned-out compound in Benghazi.

The documents, obtained by The Washington Times, show U.S. diplomats at the Benghazi compound were keeping track of several potential U.S.-sanctioned shipments to allies, one or more of which were destined for the Transitional National Council, the Libyan movement that was seeking to oust Gadhafi and form a new government.

At least one of those shipments, kept in a file marked “arms deal,” was supposed to come from Dolarian Capital Inc. of Fresno, California, according to an end use certificate from the State Department’s office of defense trade controls licensing that was contained in the file.
