Latest Shock From Europe's Refugee Crisis: Austria Right-Wing Party Sweeps First Round Of Presidential Election

The fallout of popular anger emanating from Europe's refugee crisis, which may have moderated in recent weeks following Europe's desperate attempts to bribe Turkey to keep as many refugees in its borders as possible (unleashing the era of unprecedented Turkish leverage over European sovereigns, including Germany and the Netherlands) continued today with a dramatic result from the first round of Austria's presidential election, where initial results showed that the candidate of the Freedom Party, Austria's right-wing, anti-immigrant party has swept his competition, gathering over 35% of the vote and leaving the other five candidates far behind.

Obama’s Global Warming Plan Cost Poor Americans $44 Billion, Raises Taxes By 166%

President Obama’s global warming plan would cost America’s poorest families billions annually, according to a report published Thursday by the Manhattan Institute.

The study estimates that Obama’s global warming plan would increase the costs of living for the poorest American families an additional $19 billion per year, equivalent to increasing their taxes by 166 percent. The tax increase would also raise taxes on other poor families by an extra $25 billion, equal to a 33 percent tax increase. Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.

President Barack Obama leaned in further on his warning to the British electorate against embracing a so-called Brexit from the European Union, saying it could take as long as 10 years before the U.K. and the U.S negotiated a new trade agreement.

‘The U.K. would not be able to negotiate something with the United States faster than the EU,” Obama told the BBC in an interview published on Saturday. “We wouldn’t abandon our efforts to negotiate a trade deal with our largest trading partner, the European market. But rather, it could be could be five years from now, 10 years now before we were actually able get something done.”

Must See – Ambassador Stevens Ex-Fiance Shreds Hillary Over His Death

Lydie Denier, an actress, model, and former fiance to the late Ambassador Chris Stevens, said in an interview that Hillary Clinton failed to do her job by ignoring repeated requests for additional security in Benghazi.

Denier spoke with Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg, explaining that she and Stevens were engaged to be married many years ago, and that she continued to care deeply for him despite calling off the wedding.

She described the day she found out about the attack in Benghazi and the shocking news that the man she cared for had been killed.

“When his picture came back on the screen I put my glasses on and it was him,” she said. “It was a shock.”

Denier then turned her focus to Hillary Clinton. She hinted that she could go on about her at length, but due to time constraints would simply say “she should have done a better job for security.”

She also took a shot at Clinton for claiming Ambassador Stevens was a friend.

CDC Official Warned Staff of Health, Safety Risks During Influx of Illegal Alien Minors: “Plan on Many of the Kids Having TB,” “Be Wary of Personal Safety.”

A government official warned employees deploying for the influx of illegal immigrant minors about health and safety risks because the new arrivals would have tuberculosis and some were young adults—not children—like the Obama administration proclaimed, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. “We might as well plan on many of the kids having TB,” states a June 26, 2014 guidance e-mail from a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) environmental health scientist, Alaric C. Denton, as the agency prepared to handle the crisis. “Most of these kids are not immunized, so we need to make sure all our staff are immunized.” Denton, who is stationed at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, predicts in the directive that the agency will be overwhelmed pretty quickly and that screening requirements will be hard to keep up with.

Judicial Watch had to sue the CDC’s umbrella agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, (HHS) for the records.

Constitutional Eligibility is a Matter of National Security - The Family Time Line of Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz

Anna Tomerlin has done some extensive investigation into the family line of Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz and frankly, the information is quite disturbing. Anna has graciously allowed us to repost her article to inform the public.

It is time to choose The Constitution and The Republic over Politicians and Political Parties.
Ted Cruz’s Natural Born Citizen status is in question. For that matter his citizenship status is in question. Cruz is an agent for a foreign power and foreign invader. Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz is not a United States citizen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

This is the most complete timeline (with documentation) of Ted Cruz' parents life. It is difficult to wade through but well worth it, as it confirms that Ted Cruz was not a US citizen at birth.

Rafael Cruz (Ted's father) was married to his second wife Julia Ann Garza from 1959 – 1996. Ted's mother, Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson, gave birth to Ted in 1970, while Ted's father was still married to Julia. Under Section 309(c) of the INA, children born out-of-wedlock to Americans abroad do NOT become US citizens at birth! They must be naturalized.

Ted Cruz was not a US citizen by birth.

Norwegian F16 jet mistakenly shoots up control tower with officers inside

The Norwegian Air Force has been left feeling awkward after one of its F-16 jets on a drill mistakenly opened fire on a control tower with three officers who were inside at the time of the mock attack.

An investigation has been started into the grave error, which took place on Tarva, off Norway’s west coast, AFP was told by military spokesman Captain Brynjar Stordal. Astonishingly, no one was injured in the incident.

On April 12-13, two F-16s were performing a mock attack on an enemy station on the uninhabited island, when one of them mistakenly opened fire on the control tower with its M61 Vulcan cannon, capable of making Swiss cheese out of metal and concrete at 100 rounds per second.

Turkish embassy wants Swedish channel to withdraw film on Armenian genocide

Turkey’s embassy in Stockholm has asked Sweden’s TV4 television network to pull a documentary on the mass killings of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire because the film “will fail to serve the principle of objectivity.”

Ahead of Sunday evening’s scheduled broadcast of a documentary titled “Seyfo 1915 – The Assyrian Genocide,” TV4 said it received an email from Turkish embassy press officer Arif Gulen, in which he opposes the film’s use of the term “genocide,” which is often used to describe the tragic death of thousands of Armenians at the hands of Ottoman Turks during WWI.

The letter, which was subsequently published on TV4’s official website, asks the station to “reconsider your decision on broadcasting of the… documentary film with a balanced and sensible attitude,” while cautioning that “only a competent international tribunal can determine whether a particular event is genocide.”

9/11 truth poses ‘existential threat’ to Israel: Analyst

“And I believe this revolves all around Israel’s role in 9/11,” he noted.

“This entire operation that Saudi Arabia is being center-staged as the true subject of these 28 pages that have been kept hidden from the American people, this is just, as I said, an operation aimed at distracting people away from the more damning and problematic information where Israel is actually the centerpiece of the discussion,” the analyst continued.

“According to state media, a mother and daughter from eastern China’s Shandong province have been caught peddling 25 kinds of unrefrigerated vaccines — including for polio, mumps, rabies, hepatitis B, encephalitis and meningococcal diseases — to medical facilities across 24 Chinese provinces since 2010.

Following his anti-Brexit Op-Ed which sparked much controversy and confusion as to just why the US president was interfering with yet another domestic issue, Obama held a press conference with UK PM David Cameron in which he in no uncertain terms threatened the UK with trade retaliation if the country were to exit the EU.

He said that "it's fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement but that's not going to happen anytime soon because our focus is negotiating with a big bloc, the European Union, to get a trade agreement done. And the UK is going to be in the back of the queue, not because we don't have a special relationship but because given the heavy lift on any trade agreement, us having access to a big market with a lot of countries rather than trying to do piecemeal trade agreements is hugely efficient."

LAWSUIT: Former FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg bribed her way into the FDA by handing over money to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

According to a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Margaret Hamburg, the former head of the Food and Drug Administration, is accused of using the agency to operate a huge conspiracy of racketeering and fraud so that she could generate millions of Big Pharma profits for a hedge fund involving her husband.

The suit alleges that while acting as the commissioner of the FDA, Hamburg was engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to approve a very dangerous drug that was known to cause severe and even deadly side effects, as it would financially benefit her husband's hedge fund, which at the time held large positions in the drug's maker, Johnson & Johnson.

Rumors have been swirling over the weekend that the CDC is planning a major offensive against vaccine safety skeptics due to the remarkable popularity of the VAXXED documentary film. As censorship of the film spectacularly backfired, more people became aware of the "CDC whistleblower" Dr. William Thompson, the subject of the documentary film. Dr. Thompson publicly confessed to taking part in a scientific fraud at the CDC to alter data that linked vaccines to autism in African-American boys.

Now Dr. Thompson has been turned by the CDC where he is still employed, explained investigator Brian Hooker, PhD, in a panel discussion at the Manhattan Film Festival. According to Dr. Hooker, Dr. Thompson has been promised a large research foundation and a "major cash award" by the CDC to stay employed with the agency where his research is set to be "reanalyzed" to eliminate any link between vaccines and autism.

NEW DATA ON THE MURDER RATE OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND LAND ACTIVISTS IN HONDURAS, THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD

The assassination of indigenous leader Berta Cáceres this week showed that even internationally renowned environmental activists are unsafe in Honduras, the deadliest country in the world to defend the natural world.

Global Witness figures, released today, show that at least 109 people were killed in Honduras between 2010 and 2015, for taking a stand against destructive dam, mining, logging and agriculture projects. Of the eight victims whose cases were publicly reported in 2015, six were from indigenous groups. This is likely just the tip of the iceberg – it is safe to assume that some deaths are not being publicly reported.

WASHINGTON Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich will start campaigning in coordination Monday, after making statements Sunday night that they would work together to deny frontrunner Donald Trump an outright nomination. A contested GOP convention would allow delegates to vote independently for who should lead the party’s ticket in November. Trump has 845 delegates and needs 392 more to claim the party’s nomination. David Lightman explains what could happen if Cruz and Kasich succeed in forcing a contested convention.

HOW AMERICA BACKED THE 1916 EASTER RISING

On April 24, 1916, some 1,600 rebellion-minded Irish nationalists staged an uprising, seeking an end to Great Britain’s rule in Ireland. Slow to react at the start, the British rushed troops across the Irish Sea and amassed a force of nearly 20,000 soldiers by the time the revolutionaries surrendered six days later. Once the smoke cleared, 485 people were dead—mostly civilians—and more than 2,600 wounded. Destruction of property, especially in central Dublin, was extensive—$255 million in today’s currency by one computation. Though what’s now known as the Easter Rising was planned and carried out in Ireland, America played a pivotal role in what happened in the rebellion. The Proclamation that was read announcing “The Provisional Government of the Irish Republic” named just one country besides Ireland. The republican cause, the document acknowledged, received support from the “exiled children in America.”

FLASHBACK 2014 - Ted Cruz still Canadian as immigration lawyers express confusion

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz vowed months ago to renounce his Canadian citizenship by the end of 2013. It's now 2014, and the Calgary-born Republican lawmaker is still a dual citizen.

How U.S. Senator Ted Cruz can renounce his Canadian citizenship

Ted Cruz, Tea Party favourite, to renounce Canadian citizenship

"I have retained counsel that is preparing the paperwork to renounce the citizenship," the junior Texas senator, who's eyeing a run for president in 2016, said in a recent interview with the Dallas Morning News.

He didn't dispute holding dual citizenship: "Not at this point," Cruz told the paper.

That's confounding Canadian immigration lawyers. Renouncing Canadian citizenship, they say, is a simple, quick and straightforward process — there's even an online, four-page PDF form on the Government of Canada website to get the ball rolling without the help of lawyers.

Germany bows to Erdogan

Germany has a well-known period in its history where it gave in to a dictator. Things didn’t work out so well for a lot of people.

Now there’s another dictator exerting his influence, apparently.

This time, the dictator is from Turkey.

New York Times bestselling author and Christian evangelist Joel Richardson blasted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for approving a criminal probe against German comedian Jan Böhmermann.

The satirist’s supposed crime is reading a satirical poem about Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Richardson, who highlights the plight of Middle Eastern Christians in his new documentary “Global Jesus Revolution,” said Merkel is serving the interests of one of the most dangerous people in the world.

N-Georgia U student Pro-Abortion activists sinking ever lower

Students at the University of North Georgia reportedly laughed last week as they broke the heads off cookies depicting babies in the womb, which were a part of a pro-abortion display created by the campus atheist club.

Photos of the display posted online show containers of the cookies, some of them with their heads broken off, surrounded by signs that read “abortion should remain legal because…” Students wrote in their own reasons, such as “a woman controls her own body” and the grotesque “my v*gina is too pretty to let a fetus crawl out.”

Is it not enough that these children are being exterminated? Is it not enough that this industry of murder is attacking the most helpless in our society? But now, these wicked people, in a foolish gesture to impress their wicked friends are mocking their deaths.

Will John Kasich Hand Trump the Nomination?

The best delegate trackers out there still think it likely that Donald Trump will fall short of the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the GOP nomination on the first ballot.

But there’s one man who can cut a deal and instantly make Trump the de facto nominee: Ohio governor John Kasich. He would then probably be responsible for setting in motion devastating GOP losses in November of not only the White House but also control of the U.S. Senate. Kasich himself claims there is “zero chance” he would sign on as Trump’s running mate as part of a deal to deliver his delegates for Trump. But Lyndon Johnson said the same thing before he became John F. Kennedy’s running mate, and so too did John Nance Garner before hitching up with FDR in 1932.

Cruz Stays IN By Quietly Scoring Delegates

Cruz stays in the Republican presidential fight by quietly scoring delegates
***
Cruz’s efforts might be too little, too late. He significantly trails Trump in the overall delegate count and could be mathematically eliminated after Tuesday’s primaries of getting the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination before the party’s July nominating convention.

Before Saturday, Trump had 845 pledged delegates, followed by Cruz with 559 and Kasich with 148.
***
Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island hold primaries Tuesday, with most polls showing Trump with a double-digit leads over the field.

Intel To Lay Off 12,000 People

Intel to lay off 12,000 people. Is the iconic chipmaker in trouble?
The technology pioneer announced a new focus that shifts its business further away from its legacy in personal computers to the fast growing cloud and 'Internet of Things' industries.

As it navigates its path into the future, Intel, the 47-year-old corporation best known for making microprocessor chips that power personal computers, has announced significant changes to its business.

On Tuesday, Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich said in a letter to employees that the company over the next year will cut its 107,300-person global workforce by 12,000 people, or 11 percent.

The move, said Mr. Krzanich, is meant to help transform Intel from a PC company to one that powers the cloud and the ‘Internet of Things,’ a term used to describe connected devices such as washing machines, coffeemakers, and automobiles. It also will save the chipmaker $750 million this year, says Intel in a public announcement.

Austrian riot police used batons and pepper spray as they clashed with protesters fighting controversial new controls at the country's border with Italy today.

Britain might have to deploy troops to fight ISIS in Libya warns Philip Hammond as David Cameron prepares for G5 talks with Merkel and Obama in Germany

Mr Hammond has repeatedly said in recent weeks there are no plans in place for Britain to join a new mission in Libya - despite firm reports a 1,000-strong British force will be deployed on a training mission.

But Mr Hammond today said nothing should be ruled out, adding Royal Air Force or Royal Navy assets could also be deployed alongside the Army.

The revelation comes as David Cameron prepares to fly to Germany to join a G5 meeting with US President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Italian Premier Matteo Renzi.

Plans have been drawn up for a full-blown 'United States of Europe' and Britain will have little say, warns top Tory minister

Plans have been drawn up for a full-blown United States of Europe over which Britain will have 'very little say', a Cabinet minister warned today.

The Prime Minister has promised that, as a result of his referendum reforms, Britain will not be sucked into an EU superstate.

But Chris Grayling, the leader of the Commons, pointed to a document signed last September in Rome by the speakers of the national parliaments in Germany, France, Italy and Luxembourg.

It says that 'concrete proposals' to deepen EU integration towards a 'federal union of states' will be drawn up at a meeting in Luxembourg next month.

The joint declaration states: 'We are convinced that new impetus must be given to European integration. We believe that more, not less, Europe is needed to respond to the challenges we face.'

Did a Ukrainian fighter jet shoot down MH17? BBC documentary claims Boeing 777 may have been targeted by another plane

New evidence suggests that the downing of the Malaysian Airlines plane MH17 was caused by a shot from a Ukrainian fighter jet rather than a ground-to-air missile.

The damning allegations will be revealed in a BBC documentary which puts forward a number of theories as to why the aircraft exploded.

It is even argued that the tragedy was caused by a CIA-backed 'terrorist operation.'

...

Although the official report states that the plane was hit by a Russian-made Buk missile fired from an area of the Ukraine that was under the control of Russian-backed rebels, the programme notes that people saw the aircraft being shot down by a fighter jet.

...

They believed that two jets were present and that one fired an air-to-air missile, while the other fired a canon from the back into MH17's cockpit.

Obama Requests Support For Possible War Against Russia

According to Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Economic News), on April 23rd, U.S. President Barack Obama is “demanding the active deployment of the Bundeswehr [Germany’s armed forces, including their Army, Navy, and Air Force] to NATO’s eastern borders” at Poland and the Baltic republics, to join the quadrupling of America’s forces there, on and near those borders of Russia. (This is an extreme violation of what Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to when he ended the Soviet Union and its NATO-mirror organization the Warsaw Pact, but it’s actually culminating a process that began shortly after he agreed to America’s terms, which included that NATO “not move one inch to the east.”)

Anti-racism protesters clash with police at Confederate rally in Georgia

Clashes erupted between police and counter-protesters at a far-right Confederate rally at Stone Mountain in Georgia on Saturday. Another rally held in Georgia the same day featured KKK and Nationalist Socialist Movement members.

Both events were held within 70 miles of each other, commemorating the upcoming Confederate Memorial Day, and featuring banners and signs, as well as Confederate flags. Over in the city of Rome, Georgia, the Ku Klux Klan, together with the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement and the Aryan Nation took part in a so-called “free speech” rally in front of the Floyd County Law Enforcement Center on Saturday.

9/11 truth poses ‘existential threat’ to Israel: Analyst

How Democrats Could Snatch Defeat Out of the Jaws Of Victory

The many high-level officials in the Democratic Party, including super delegates, who strongly support Hillary Clinton, are extremely confident that she will become their party’s nominee and then win in the general election. But they would be wise to hold off on their celebrations because dark, menacing clouds continue to loom over her candidacy.

Sure, she was a big winner in New York but her huge disapproval rating still represents a major liability; far too many Americans just don’t like or trust her. So even if she beats Sanders, which might be a safe bet at this point, she will, thereafter, come under a withering, relentless attack in the general election when Republicans take aim at her political baggage and the many skeletons in her closet.

"But on some of the Republican candidates we would -- before we could support them, we'd have to believe their actions will be quite different than the rhetoric we've heard so far."

Texas has lost 84,000 oil and gas jobs in the oil bust

Texas lost 84,000 oil and gas jobs in just 16 months, according to the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, which has been tracking the impact of the oil and gas bust across the state.

Karr Ingham, the petroleum economist who authors the group’s Texas Petro Index (which has also been in decline for 16 months), announced the latest data at the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers annual meeting this past week in Austin.

An estimated 222,000 Texans remain on so-called “upstream” oil and gas industry payrolls – the part of the industry that includes exploration and production activity. That’s down 27.5 percent from a high of about 306,020 in December 2014.

Ingham expects tough times are still ahead in Texas oil, with more layoffs to come.

Oil tanker laden with North Dakota crude reaches Netherlands

A petroleum tanker laden with 175,000 barrels of North Dakota crude was being offloaded in Europe on Wednesday, the first such overseas shipment of the state’s oil since Congress lifted a 40-year ban on crude exports in December.
***
“It’s a big deal,” said Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, a trade group that represents about 500 companies working in the oil patch in the western part of the state. “Once you get a barrel to sea, it will fetch a better price.”

The ban on crude exports was put in place in response to the energy crisis of the 1970s.
***
“Where crude goes is where it gets the best value,” Roper said. “We are always seeking higher value. When the value is right, we will definitely do it.”

The company has said that producers could earn up to $14 more per barrel for domestic sweet crude by selling it on the world market.
***
Ness said lifting the export ban should help bring higher prices for North Dakota oil.

“The whole world is a market now,” he said.

Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States; The meaning of "Natural Born." UPDATED

United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)

"A person born out of the jurisdiction of the United States can only become a citizen by being naturalized," "Under our Constitution, a naturalized citizen stands on an equal footing with the native citizen in all respects save that of eligibility to the Presidency." "It is important to recognize that "citizenship" itself is man-made. So we need to separate "natural born" from "citizen". The two are independent of one another. Naturalization statutes can make one a citizen, but not "natural born". That is solely about the physical circumstances of one's birth, such as location."

The Supreme Court elaborated in Luria v. United States, 231 U.S. 9 (1913)

"Under our Constitution, a naturalized citizen stands on an equal footing with the native citizen in all respects save that of eligibility to the Presidency."

5 Scientific Reasons That Global Warming Isn't Happening

If nothing changes in the next year, we're going to have kids who graduate from high school who will have never seen any "global warming" during their lifetimes. That's right; the temperature of the planet has essentially been flat for 17 years. This isn't a controversial assertion either. Even the former Director of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, Phil Jones, admits that it's true. Since the planet was cooling from 1940-1975 and the upswing in temperature afterward only lasted 22 years, a 17 year pause is a big deal. It also begs an obvious question: How can we be experiencing global warming if there's no actual "global warming?"

River of Fire: Politician Makes Intense Video to Illustrate the Dangers of Fracking

By Matt Agorist

Five years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was commissioned by Congress to undertake a study on the impacts of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on drinking water. This newer method of oil and gas extraction involves the pumping of highly pressurized water, sand and chemicals into underground rock formations.

Fracking has driven the boom in U.S. oil production and contributed to the steep drop in gasoline prices, but the environmental impacts of this relatively new technique are not well understood.

The EPA’s draft study—released in June to solicit input from advisers and the public—found that fracking has already contaminated drinking water..
