Pig's Head With 'Insulting' Anti-Merkel Sign Found Outside German Ruling Party Office

A severed pig’s head bearing insulting comments has been found outside the office of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party in the German city of Stralsund.

According to police in the Baltic city, a patrol car noticed the animal head on the footsteps of the Christian Democratic Union’s (CDU) regional office at 5:40 am on Saturday. Refusing to comment on the exact content of the message, authorities only said that the porcine remains bore an “insulting inscription” directed against the German leader.

VIDEO: 'Free Hugs Guy' Punches Woman in the Face for 'Refusing to Tip,' Has 16 Arrests

Newly released video shows the "free hugs guy" punching an innocent Canadian woman in the face after she refused to give him a tip.

24-year-old Jermaine Himmelstein has evidently made a career out of offering "free hugs" then assaulting women who don't give him "tips" in return.

WABC reports Himmelstein has been arrested 16 times, including just days ago on April 29th for punching another young woman in the face under the exact same circumstances. He reportedly told his victim, "You will respect me or I will (expletive) knock you out."

#NVDemConvention Results Reported Hours Before Vote #NV64

Some how hours before the Nevada Democratic Convention vote actually happened, the final result of the vote were somehow reported by the AP via local Nevada news station.

How does a news outlet report final vote results hours before the actual vote occurs?

Adding to the scandal, the official vote has Hillary Clinton winning by 31 votes, but after the vote was conducted a petition was presented with the signature of 64 Bernie Sander supporters saying they were suppressed from being allowed to vote. The response to the petition was to tell the voters to present their complaint at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

BUNDY RANCH PPOLITICAL PRISONER DROPS BOMBSHELL FROM JAIL: US GOVERNMENT WILL PANIC WHEN THIS COMES OUT

Reporter and political prisoner Pete Santilli of The Pete Santilli Show dropped a bombshell from jail earlier this week. He claims that the information below, once it comes out in the open in court, will have the US government in a panic.

“It is documented and we have the documentation,” he continued. “We will be going through the court system appropriately, but the entire Bundy Ranch debacle and what Cliven Bundy said on that stage to that Sheriff… unfortunately, these buffoon people that the US government’s US Attorney’s Office actually put on the record that Nevada, part of the Hidalgo Treaty and all this stuff is absolute lunacy that they are lining us all up about an incident that took place in Clark County Nevada that has never been part of federal lands since 1866.”

BREAKING: 12 States Stand Up Against Obama’s Unlawful Trans Bathroom Decree

Barack Obama went way too far with his unconstitutional overreach in attempting to require “transgender-compliant” restrooms, showers and locker rooms in all public places across America.

And the massive backlash is spreading fast. So far 12 states have condemned Obama’s outrageous decree.

Now other states have jumped on board, defending North Carolina and the state’s rights to set these guidelines themselves without federal interference. At the very least, they want Congress to establish guidelines and not the Executive Branch.

Real Change Only Comes When Millions Unite and Fight Back

Why is it in America we massive level of wealth and income inequality? Why is it that I am working longer hours at lower wages and the wealth is going to the top 1%? Why is it that middle class has been disappearing for over 30 years? Why are we the only major country on earth that doesn't provide paid family and medical leave? That doesn't provide healthcare for all people? Why do we have the highest rate of childhood poverty in the world? Why are out inner cities and infrastructure throughout this country collapsing?

Why? People are beginning to catch on. Once you start asking those questions and once you get involved politically what seems so hard yesterday will not be so hard tomorrow.

The same thing with all of the other struggles for workers rights, for civil rights, for women's rights , for gay rights... what we are fighting for a country and a government that works for all of us and not just the one 1%.

School installs toilet for transgender pupil, aged 6

A popular Auckland primary school has been praised for installing a unisex toilet to help a 6-year-old transgender pupil feel safe and accepted.

The toilet was installed earlier this year with the support of the Board of Trustees and the Education Ministry after the child's transition from boy to girl.

The Herald on Sunday has chosen not to name the school to protect the child's privacy. Sources said that school-mates have happily accepted the child's transition and parents who know the girl have also been supportive.

The school's board chairman said their decision was about supporting a pupil. "We have a policy of safety around identity and culture, and that includes gender. We feel strongly that every child deserves to feel safe in the school environment."

Bernie Sanders explains that providing free public college is not a radical idea. Instead it is an idea whose time will come and it is our job to make it come sooner rather than later.

But how will it be paid for? A few years ago Wall Street drove this country to the worse economic recession since the great depression.

Wall street is doing just fine today and taxing their speculation that caused the Financial Collapse of #2008 would bring in more than enough money to provide free public college to everyone and help massively reduce current student debt.

Scenes From The Venezuela Apocalypse: "Countless Wounded" After 5,000 Loot Supermarket Looking For Food

Over the last several years we have documented with clockwork regularity Venezuela's collapse into failed state status, which was cemented several weeks ago when news hit that "Venezuela had officially run out of money to print new money." At that point the best one could do was merely to step back and watch as local society and civilization turned on itself, unleashing what would ultimately turn into Venezuela's own, sad apocalypse.

As we wrote then these are simply hungry Venezuelans protesting that their children are dying from lack of food and medicine and that they do not have enough water or electricity. As AgainstCronyCapitalism added, this is a country with more oil than Saudi Arabia, and the government has stolen all the money and now they bottleneck peaceful protesters and threaten them with bombs (or haul them to prison and torture them).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, economic mismanagement, coupled with US sanctions, and a strong appetite to bring down what had been a reasonably functional socialist country in South America, which committed the unforgivable sin of selling its oil in other currencies than the US dollars, are all converging on Venezuela simultaneously.

Watch, in the not to distant future, for the Maduro government to fall, and be replaced by a more US-Centric, right-wing government, which, at the end of the day, will bring no more help or comfort to its people than did the present government.

America Threatens Russia: US-NATO Forces “Moving from a Training to a War Fighting Stance”

In a report published in the American journal, National Security News, on May 9th, the day of the celebration of the victory of Soviet and allied forces over the fascist forces in 1945, it was stated that, “in terms of the eastern threat-which is a reference to Russia-EUCOM (the American Forces European Command) will be moving from a training to a war fighting stance.”

The article continues, “this does not mean that the U.S. is planning a war with Russia, merely that it will shift its force structure in a manner aimed at deterring Moscow and defending NATO and European partners should Russian President Vladimir Putin attempt what he has done in Ukraine.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not a question of if, but when, such a war will happen, and President Obama seems hell-bent that it happen under his watch.

Why, and why in an election year?!?

First, because the American economy is close to an absolute, total collapse, and Obama wants a war with which to mask the real reasons for such a collapse, which is lousy Federal economic policy.

Secondly, out of spite, if Trump should win the election, Obama wants to simultaneously hand him the two worst scenarios with which any new President of this country could possibly contend; an economic depression, coupled with a war with Russia, from which he cannot readily disentangle.

VIDEO: ISIS Supplied by NATO. Syria Captures Turkish “Aid Cargo” Heading to Daesh in Iraq

In a video released by Russia’s RT television network on Friday, Hussein al-Omar, a colonel in Syria’s Military Intelligence Directorate, said that the lorry, loaded with some 25 tons of medicine and hospital supplies, including a number of dialysis machines, had entered Syria from Turkey’s Bab al-Hawa international border crossing, located on Syria’s northwestern border with Turkey.

He added that the lorry was planned to reach Mosul, Daesh’s de facto capital in Iraq, through the towns of Afrin, A’zaz, and Manbij in Aleppo province. According to Omar, the lorry, loaded in Turkey, bore a Syrian number plate and was driven by two militants from al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terrorist group, who had received the cargo in the Bab al-Hawa border crossing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact the story and these images are a true representation of what is going in Turkey and Syria, it is then completely correct that NATO and the US are absolutely desperate to overthrow Al-Assad, no matter how many innocent people are slaughtered in their attempts to make that happen.

I would strongly caution both the leadership of the NATO and the US of the following certainty: Russia is not going anywhere, in its ongoing efforts to keep Al-Assad in power.

Nakba, in Arabic, simply means, Catastrophe, or Tragedy; for Palestinians, it is the most tragic nightmare to happen to a whole nation in modern history.

After 68 years of Nakba this is a reminder to the Free and Democratic World, that there will be no peace in this region if Palestinian Nakba continues, and if this conflict will not have a just end.

Torture, War, Assassinations are Part of the “New Normal”: Bush-Obama Powers Will Pass to Next President

Remember when coups and assassinations were secretive, when presidents were obliged to go to Congress and tell lies and ask permission for wars, when torture, spying, and lawless imprisonment were illicit, when re-writing laws with signing statements and shutting down legal cases by yelling “state secrets!” was abusive, and when the idea of a president going through a list of men, women, and children on Tuesdays to pick whom to have murdered would have been deemed an outrage?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this country's leadership ever had what could be characterised as a "moral center", it has been assassinated, courtesy of the last two administrations.

The only thing this country's leadership has, at the moment, is a "financial center", where wars are fought, not because of the US government being "on the right side of history", but how accessing resources around the world, to which American corporations have no moral right, justifies any wars this country's leadership might undertake.

It is a policy fraught with extraordinary hubris, and will ultimately bring the same result upon the US government as it did the Greek heroes of old; absolute, unmitigated disaster for this country.

Monsanto Takeover? Corporate Cabal's Control of Food Supply Continues

German chemical giants Bayer AG and BASF SE are both considering takeovers of U.S. seed behemoth Monsanto, according to news reports on Thursday.

Of the potential Bayer takeover of Monsanto, valued at roughly $40 billion, Bloomberg noted that it "would create the world’s largest supplier of seeds and farm chemicals."

As USA Today reported, "A bid for Monsanto would be just the most recent in a wave of chemical and agribusiness consolidation."

Indeed, in February China National Chemical Corp. (ChemChina) announced it would acquire Swiss pesticide company Syngenta for $43 billion, while DuPont and Dow Chemical announced their merger last year.

According to advocacy group Food & Water Watch, such consolidation has far-reaching impacts, and is bad news for farmers and communities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you can still access heirloom seeds, uncontaminated by GMOS, now certainly would be the time to do so.

GMO products are "weapons of mass destruction" against the health of Americans, and should be avoided like the plague.

Kremlin Has Hillary’s Emails

The Kremlin is considering whether or not to release some 20,000 hacked Clinton emails reportedly in its possession.

Russian security services apparently obtained the emails as part of their investigation into the Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer” — now in U.S. custody in relation to the Clinton email scandal.

“There’s a debate going on in the Kremlin between the Foreign Ministry and the Intelligence Services about whether they should release the 20,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails that they have hacked into,” Judge Andrew Napolitano told Megyn Kelly on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this story first appeared, I was concerned because it was sourced to Sorcha Faal, a known disinformation agent (Real name David Booth, who lives near the CIA).

But there seems to be enough independent confirmation to pay attention to this story.

One thing is clear. Guccifer confirmed at least ten foreign IPs were logging into Hillary's server. Ten foreign entities have all the goodies, and will be in a position to blackmail President Hillary.

It is not worth the risk.

The Ugly Consequences of the U.S. Military Having Immunity to Commit War Crimes in Afghanistan

Consistent with a longstanding pattern, the U.S. military, in lieu of accountability, is now doling out “condolence” payments of $6,000 to the families of those killed and $3,000 to the people wounded. But what is so remarkable about this latest case is that the U.S. military is dodging real consequences for a bloodbath it now admits to perpetrating (after originally changing its story at least four times, including an initial denial of culpability). What’s more, the Pentagon appears to be getting away with it, even though MSF has a high media profile, thanks to its prominent role as a western NGO. In November, MSF received considerable coverage for its harrowing report on the carnage inflicted by the U.S. military. “Patients burned in their beds, medical staff were decapitated and lost limbs, and others were shot by the circling AC-130 gunship while fleeing the burning building,” the medical charity documented.

Well, as we’ve shared many times before, actually curing cancer would be detrimental to the pharmaceutical industry...

So much so that they’re willing to do whatever it takes to silence the doctors and keep their poisons as the only solutions. They’re trying to do that now with Dr. Burzynski by revoking his medical license. We sent our film crew to the first part of the trial in November of last year (see video at https://youtu.be/_KRVvW1XaK8) and we just sent our crew again this week to capture more footage and get us a full report.

Re-established by President Jimmy Carter in 1980 in retaliation for the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the Selective Service program has been spending hundreds of millions of dollars over the past 36 years registering all men aged 18-26 for a military draft which not only doesn’t exist, but which the Pentagon has repeatedly expressed public opposition to.

And while the program’s website brags that “It’s What a Man’s Got to Do,” the program is about to get a lot bigger, and by extension, a lot more expensive, as the Senate Armed Services Committee has followed its House counterpart in passing the Draft America’s Daughters Act of 2016, which would expand the registration requirement to women.

Venezuela’s Maduro Declares Emergency, Cites U.S., Domestic ‘Threats’ To His Rule

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared a 60-day state of emergency on Friday due to what he called plots from within the OPEC country and the United States to topple his leftist government.

Maduro did not provide details of the measure. A previous state of emergency, implemented in states near the Colombian border last year, suspended constitutional guarantees in those areas, except for guarantees relating to human rights.

Earlier on Friday, U.S. intelligence officials told reporters they were increasingly worried about the potential for an economic and political meltdown in Venezuela and predicted Maduro was not likely to complete his term.

Venezuela’s opposition is seeking to recall the unpopular leader, 53, amid a worsening crisis that includes food and medicine shortages, frequent power cuts, sporadic looting and galloping inflation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maduro is correct in his assessment.

And, as reported in presstv.com in March of this year (with scant to zero coverage here in the US):

US President Barack Obama has renewed an executive order that declares Venezuela a threat to the US, extending sanctions against the South American country for one more year. In renewing the measure, Obama said on Thursday that the situation in Venezuela constituted an "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States" and that he was declaring a "national emergency" to counter that threat. The Obama administration first issued the executive order against Venezuela in March of last year, which provoked a storm of controversy inside the country and a backlash throughout Latin America. Following last year’s decree, Obama ordered sanctions against seven Venezuelan officials, whose economy has been battered by the steep drop in global oil prices. Venezuela has condemned the measure as a sign of Washington’s perpetual hostility towards the Latin American nation. The National Emergencies Act is a tool American presidents possess that allows them to impose sanctions on a country under certain circumstances that go beyond what Congress has approved. The executive order also authorizes the US Treasury Department to impose additional sanctions on those found to have committed either "actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions" or rights violations against persons involved in anti-government protests, the White House said. US presidents have declared about 53 states of emergency since Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1976. The state of emergency forms the basis for most US sanctions against Iran. The declaration would expire if the president expressly terminated the emergency or did not renew the emergency annually.

One has to ask, why this overblown rhetoric, characterising Venezuela as a "threat" to the US?!?

Very simply, because, before the huge plunge in oil prices, Venezuela had been a socialist country in South America which had actually been functioning successfully; American corporations could not bear to see this happen much longer.

They are also selling their oil in currencies other than the US dollar.

But now, with its society heading into chaos and self-destruction due to the horrific poverty the lack of oil revenue here has caused, Obama smells blood in the water.

Watch for some rightist "people's movement" to at least attempt remove Maduro in favor of some more "US-Centric" leadership.

The big question now is, how will Venezuela's military respond to both the chaos and economic misery which has become the new normal here, and how much they believe that Maduro has caused it... or not.

Sen. Sessions: Election offers a simple choice

For the first time in a long time, this November will give Americans a clear choice on perhaps the most important issue facing our country and our civilization: whether we remain a nation-state that serves its own people, or whether we slide irrevocably toward a soulless globalism that treats humans as interchangeable widgets in the world market.

In Donald Trump, we have a forceful advocate for America. Trump has said that our trade, immigration and foreign policies must be changed to protect the interests of American workers and our nation.

In Hillary Clinton, we have a committed globalist. Clinton was an ardent supporter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — which surrenders American sovereignty to an international union of 12 countries — and has clearly left the door wide open to enacting the pact if elected.

Federal judge Claudio Bonadio said a scheme to inflate the Argentine peso by selling the central bank's US dollars below market value would not have been possible without Fernandez's approval.

Bonadio is investigating whether the move, enacted in the last few months of her second term, was a deliberate attempt to sabotage her successor, the Argentina Independent reported.

Why do the numbers for Auschwitz-Birkenau keep changing?

The charge against the Germans at Nuremberg was based on a document written on May 6, 1945 by the Soviet Union that was accepted into evidence by the Nuremberg IMT although there was no proof whatsoever given in this document that 4 million people had been killed. The Soviet figure of 4 million was based on the estimated capacity of the ovens at Auschwitz and Birkenau. The ovens at Birkenau had been removed by the Germans two months before they abandoned the camp, but the Soviets were still able to somehow estimate their capacity.

The Soviets also charged the German war criminals with killing 1.5 million prisoners at Majdanek. That figure has now been reduced to 78,000 by the Majdanek Museum. Out of this number, 59,000 were Jews.

American Public Is Not Entitled To See Full Senate Torture Report, Court Rules

An appeals court ruled on Friday that more than 6,000 pages of the so-called Senate torture report cannot be made public because they consist of congressional records that are not subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, which only covers federal agencies.

The unanimous ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Washington made clear that records that Congress shares with federal agencies can’t be disclosed if there’s a “clear intent” by lawmakers “to control the document.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the absence of any real documents, We The People are now free to imagine the very worst! After all, if waterboarding were the extent of it, they wouldn't need to hide the report, would they?

Study eyes risk of big tsunami in Hawaii from mega-earthquake in Aleutians

A mega-tsunami in Hawaii generated by an Aleutian Islands earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 or higher would affect more than 300,000 people, the state estimates, and cause some $40 billion in damage.

But how probable is an event like that?

A team of University of Hawaii at Manoa researchers spent five years trying to answer that question, and here's what they concluded: There's a 9 percent chance of Hawaii suffering a direct hit from such a mega-tsunami in the next 50 years.

In other words, rare but possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1964 there was a magnitude 9.2 quake that hit Anchorage, Alaska. The Tsunami wiped out much of the city of Hilo, on the Big Island.

The Vultures’ Vultures: How A New Hedge-Fund Strategy Is Corrupting Washington

A Harvard-trained political economist, Shapiro is the head of a consulting firm called Sonecon. That business card doesn’t do it for you? He’s got a few more in his wallet:

Senior fellow at the Georgetown University School of Business.

Adviser to the International Monetary Fund.

Director of the Globalization Initiative at NDN, a progressive think tank.

Shapiro, it turns out, is but one foot soldier in the hedge fund infantry. A review of public documents, tax filings and interviews with people involved finds that in each of the three campaigns, hedge funds have enlisted the same set of lobbyists, political operatives, dark money groups and think-tank experts spanning the political spectrum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one thing one can safely say about the managers of these vulture capitalism hedge funds; they have collectively had their consciences surgically removed before accepting their jobs.

WSJ BOMBSHELL: Clinton Foundation Gave $2 Million To Bill's 'Energizer' Mistress

Bill Clinton’s foundation arranged a $2 million pledge to a failed green energy company partly owned by a wealthy blond divorcée — who is the frequent visitor to his home nicknamed 'Energizer' by Secret Service agents

The “commitment” to Julie Tauber McMahon’s firm from the Clinton Global Initiative was placed on its 2010 conference agenda at Bill Clinton’s urging, the Wall Street Journal reported .

The initiative “commits $2 million to support the work of Energy Pioneer Solutions, a company founded to deliver energy savings to communities in rural America,” said a 2010 statement from the charity.

Clinton even went to bat for the company when it came to lobbying for federal funds. He helped steer an $812,000 federal grant to his blonde bombshell's company by endorsing the funds via Energy Secretary Steven Chu, the Journal said.

Weaponizing the Term “Conspiracy Theory”

Conspiracy theory’ is a term that strikes fear and anxiety in the hearts of most every public figure, particularly journalists and academics. Since the 1960s the label has become a disciplinary device that has been overwhelmingly effective in defining certain events as off limits to inquiry or debate. Especially in the United States, raising legitimate questions about dubious official narratives destined to inform public opinion (and thereby public policy) is a major thought crime that must be cauterized from the public psyche at all costs… CIA Document 1035-960 played a definitive role in making the ‘conspiracy theory’ term a weapon to be wielded against almost any individual or group calling the government’s increasingly clandestine programs and activities into question. – From CIA Document 1035-960

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

Saudi Arabia does not have a history of dirty tricks, nor a demonstrated ability to carry out such deceptions. More to the point, Saudi Arabia has no motive to attack the United States. The Saudi princes have grown very rich indeed through the Petrodollar arrangement. Saudi Arabia buys many American products and weapons ($61 billion in 2011), and unlike Israel, the American taxpayer does not have to give them the money first with which to buy those weapons. Whereas Israel constantly takes money out of the US, the Saudis pour it in! Private Saudi investment in the US economy is over $400 billion. Saudi Arabia is a major creditor to the US Government. Exact figures are hard to find but Saudi Arabia has loaned the US Government hundreds of billions of dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When 9-11 first happened, the government assured us that Afghanistan was behind it.

War followed.

Then, after Afghanistan was destroyed (and the opium flow had resumed to American drug lords), the government assured us that Iraq, not Afghanistan, was behind 9-11.

War followed.

Now that Iraq has been destroyed, that same government is trying to shift the blame for 9-11 to Saudi Arabia.

We know what will follow.

WATCH: White cop brutally beats black teen for riding bike — then charges her with assault

Monique Tillman and her brother were bicycling home on May 24, 2014 when they cut through the parking lot of the Tacoma Mall. Officer Jared Williams, a uniformed white officer of the Tacoma Police Department, was working mall security that day. He pursued the two teenagers — who are black — and informed them that they were trespassing on mall property.

When the girl tried to explain that she and her brother live nearby and routinely cut through the parking lot, Williams became enraged and attacked the girl.

The officer jerked the girl off her bike and began choking her, slamming her against a car and slinging her around like rag doll. He then shocked her with a Taser.

“He was choking me, grabbed me by my hair and tried to slam my face into the concrete. The next thing I know, I’m on the ground being tased,” the girl said.

Williams arrested the teen and charged her with resisting arrest and assault on an officer. The charges were dismissed by the court.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope this officer is never, ever able to work as a police officer anywhere, in this country, and that the City of Tacoma is made to pay, big-time, for this horrific violence against an innocent young woman.

But what really bothers me about this is, what in heaven's name made this guy think he could employ such brutality with impunity and get away with it?!? What signals, at city, country, State, or Federal level, was he getting which made this kind of thing perfectly acceptable, in his mind?!?

That is the question I hope the City of Tacoma Council Members will be asking themselves as they wind up probably forking over millions to this family, courtesy of the actions of a rogue cop.

Homeland Security Creates Travel Havoc to Force People Into Precheck Programs

Homeland Security wants to force more travelers to become “known” to the government via PreCheck programs.

Ultimately, it seems, Homeland Security hopes to be the arbitrator of who flies in the US and who does not. This is how fascism encroaches on public life, not all at once, but a little bit at a time.

PEW RESEARCH STUDY – THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS DECLINED IN 90% OF METRO AREAS FROM 2000-2014

When you bail out financial criminals and predators, you get a criminal and predatory economy. If there’s one clear lesson from the 2008 crisis and its aftermath, that should be it.

It’s what I like to call the Hunger Games economy. You’re thrown into the woods with a diminishing capacity to work hard and earn a middle income, and if you fail to enter the upper echelons you’ll be reduced to poverty. The result is insecurity, stress and ultimately resentment, which before too long bubbles to the surface in all sorts of unwelcome ways. A strong and vibrant middle class has always provided a buffer to truly nasty civil unrest and revolution in these United States. As it goes extinct, the probability of those things rises exponentially.

This correlation between a thriving middle class and lower levels of income inequality is the most significant takeaway from the study.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, but those in power have always despised the middle class in this country because it was from the middle class where protest movements have arisen.

So, in both the Bush and Obama administrations, offshoring/outsourcing of jobs that used to be the backbone of what used to be a thriving American middle has continued, with a vengeance; please remember that this was not accidental, but an unspoken Federal policy, to appease those corporations which bought, and controlled, both administrations.

It is just that simple.

FARMERS SAY MONSANTO’S ROUNDUP GAVE THEM CANCER

Despite Monsanto’s claim that its Roundup weed-killer is “safe enough to drink,” four Nebraska farmers say the widely used herbicide gave them non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” but Monsanto has promoted Roundup as “safe enough to drink,” the farmers say in their federal lawsuit.

“Roundup is used by Nebraskans raising everything from grain to grass and tulips to trees. Nothing on the label alerts users to health risks,” their attorney David Domina said in an interview. “Nebraskans deserve the benefit of the (World Health Organization) research, and protection against unknown exposure.”

Monsanto, based in St. Louis, is the world’s largest producer of glyphosate herbicides. The company made $4.8 billion from Roundup sales last year. It is applied to “Roundup-ready” crops that are genetically modified to resist it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For reckless endangerment of public health, for everyone who signed off on this carcinogen, previous and current executives of Monsanto should be serving hard jail time, and NOT at a "Club Fed".

People who knowingly poison their brother and sister Americans, invoking "profits uber alles" should be as severely dealt with as the law allows.

Philly PD admits its SUV was masked as Google Maps vehicle

The Philly PD has a "mystery" on its hands, and it involves one of its own vehicles. On Wednesday, a University of Pennsylvania professor spotted an SUV near the Philadelphia Convention Center, souped up with two high-tech license-plate readers and a placard linking it to the Pennsylvania State Police — but with a Google Maps decal smacked onto its window, PhillyVoice.com reports.

"WTF?" Matt Blaze tweeted with a picture of the strangely camouflaged vehicle, which the Philadelphia Police Department did confirm Thursday was part of its fleet.

"However, the placing of any particular decal on the vehicle was not approved through any chain of command," a department spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Motherboard. The rep adds the decals were ordered to be taken down ASAP and that an investigation was launched.

BEX ALERT - Why It's a Big Deal Hillary Clinton Plans to Shake Up the Fed

Hillary Clinton is taking on the United States Federal Reserve System, but in a wonky, bottom's-up way that shows her understanding of a complex and widely misunderstood organization. This is not "End the Fed" or even "audit the Fed" — she wants to rebuild it from its fundamentals at the regional level.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with the Federal Reserve (which is no more "Federal" than Federal Express) is that by design, it creates more debt than money with which to pay the debt, so the debt grows without restraint until it impoverishes the nation and transfers all the real assets from the people to the owners of the Fed. The owners of the federal Reserve know that ink and paper, or numbers typed in a computer, have no real worth. The real value is in that debt obligation which gives the bankers control over nations and people.

All private central banks, without exception, operate this way, which is why all nations enslaved to private central banks are deep in debt and hovering at the edge of collapse.

"Reforming" the Fed won't really change anything, and Hillary (who has had millions showered on her by Wall Street) knows this.

Private Central Banking is still a system of rule by compound interest, and it is no more legitimate a form of governance than rule by divine right or rule by slavery, and like those former failed systems only prevails as long as people are brainwashed into thinking this is the way the world is supposed to be.

The only way to correct the present situation is to abolish private central banks and return to a system where the public currency is managed as a public utility, not as a private-for-profit system of organized looting.

For the first time in a long time, this November will give Americans a clear choice on perhaps the most important issue facing our country and our civilization: whether we remain a nation-state that serves its own people, or whether we slide irrevocably toward a soulless globalism that treats humans as interchangeable widgets in the world market.

In Donald Trump, we have a forceful advocate for America. Trump has said that our trade, immigration and foreign policies must be changed to protect the interests of American workers and our nation.

Flight Logs: Bill Clinton much morer on Sex-offender jet

Flight logs show Bill Clinton flew on sex offender's jet much more than previously known

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” -- even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

Roundup toxic to soil fungus at doses well below agricultural dilution

Microorganisms such as fungi are crucial to healthy soil. Since Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world, soil microorganisms in many areas will be exposed to it.

The new study was carried out as part of a participatory research project called Institutions-Citizens Partnership for Research and Innovation (PICRI). It was conducted by a team of researchers led by Christian Vélot, a lecturer and researcher in molecular genetics at the University Paris-Sud, France.

The team studied the effects of a commercial formulation of Roundup called GT Plus, containing 450 mg/L of glyphosate (the stated active ingredient).

The researchers concluded that the toxic effects of the glyphosate-based herbicide on soil filamentous fungi, and thus potential impairment of soil ecosystems, may occur at doses far below the recommended agricultural application rate.

Rothschild Bank Now Under Criminal Investigation Over Missing $4 Billion in Global Corruption Probe

Only two months ago, we reported on the Swiss branch of the Edmond de Rothschild Group announcing that they were the target of a French criminal probe “regarding a business relationship managed by a former employee.”

Now, the Luxembourg unit of Rothschild banking empire is being investigated by the Luxembourg state prosecutors office — alleged to have sent hundreds of millions of dollars to an account at a bank in Luxembourg that originated from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)...

Russia Blames ‘Foreign Interference’ for Brazil Coup

The Russian Foreign Ministry spoke out Wednesday against the efforts to oust Rousseff, pinning the move on “foreign interference.”

“For Russia, Brazil is an important foreign partner in Latin America and the world,” added Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova.

Russia and Brazil have an important relationship and are members of the influential BRICS group.

A 2015 document, reported in various Russian news agencies, addressed the possibility of U.S. intelligence agency involvement in the parliamentary coup against President Dilma Rousseff. “It is quite possible that the CIA is involved in the plan to stage riots in Brazil nationwide,” the Russian news outlets said in a 2015 report.
