Hillary’s Campaign Caught RED HANDED – Things Just Got Worse!

This week it was confirmed: The general election will feature conservative businessman Donald J. Trump against Hillary Clinton.

But Hillary Clinton’s major obstacle is her record of criminal behavior. The FBI has a serious criminal investigation looking into her email usage and transmission of top secret documents.

Now, a bombshell report reveals just how corrupt Team Hillary is. Even as the investigation is ongoing, Hillary Clinton’s campaign made multiple payments to a company that “specializes in hard drive and document destruction.”

The transactions, captured on Hillary’s campaign finance records, show that Team Hillary is actively destroying files right now! What records? We may never know.

How A Collapse In South America Could Trigger Martial Law In The U.S.

By Brandon Smith

If an economic system collapses in the woods and no one is paying attention, are there any consequences outside the woods? Well, yes, of course. As with most situations financial and global, however, consequences are not usually taken very seriously until they have spawned a vast bog of sewage we all have to then swim through.

The issue is and always will be “interdependency,” and the dissolution of sovereign borders. Take a close look at the European Union, for example...

EU BORDER THREAT: Brussels to fine countries €250,000 for EVERY REFUGEE refused entry

The financial penalty, which would see countries who wish to retain control of their own borders fined hundreds of millions of euros, is expected to be unveiled tomorrow.

With countries including Hungary refusing to accept quotas of migrants issued by the European Union, the huge financial threat has been introduced to prevent states from choosing who to accept in their countries.

The deliberately high fine of €250,000 per asylum seeker will leave countries with no choice but to accept thousands of migrants - or face huge penalties.

Poland, for example, would be forced to pay €1.5billion if they kept their borders closed to the 6,200 migrants on their quota.

Anti-Gun Georgia Governor Deal Meets Personally with Bibi Netanyahu

The 73-year-old Baptist lawyer, who only switched to the Republican party after many years in office as a Democrat, went to Israel in 2014 to personally meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Deal brought along his wife and a gaggle of government slugs. He bragged that in only one year since he became governor, "imports from Israel to Georgia increased by 71 percent and total trade increased by 46 percent! Israel is a vital partner in friendship! We are here to bolster our ties as we celebrate Georgia’s 20th year in the Israeli market and our long-standing commitment to the country,” Deal said on his Israel trip, as he made deals.

The Weaknesses that Doomed Ted Cruz

Indiana was supposed to be friendly territory for Cruz, who burst onto the national scene in 2012 by harnessing the tea-party movement, and was the first to grasp that the simmering anger that propelled him to office could also fuel a presidential campaign. Hoosier State Republicans had traded Richard Lugar for the archconservative Richard Mourdock the same year Cruz was elected to the Senate, and as recently as a few weeks ago there was reason to believe they could revive Cruz ahead of the campaign’s final stretch. But in the end, like those in so many other states this cycle, they broke for a candidate with fewer conservative bonafides but more of a claim on the outsider status and anger that Cruz once owned.

Kristol is just fine with a Hillary Clinton presidency because fundamentally the neocons do not have any conservative principles at all. It’s always been a sham and a masquerade. Since their origins in the Democratic Party, they have always been on the left at heart when it comes to social policy, and any deviation from that is only the result of strategic decisions, not principle. They are completely unprincipled, and the Trump candidacy has brought this to the fore.

TTIP—American Economic Imperialism by Paul Craig Roberts

These so-called “free trade agreements” are not trade agreements. The purpose of the “partnerships,” which were drafted by global corporations, is to make corporations immune to the laws of soverign countries in which they do business. Any country’s sovereign law whether social, environmental, food safety, labor protections—any law or regulation—that impacts a corporation’s profits is labeled a “restraint on trade.” The “partnerships” permit corporations to file a suit that overturns the law or regulation and also awards the corporation damages paid by the taxpayers of the country that tried to protect its environment or the safety of its food and workers.

The law suit is not heard in the courts of the country or in any court. It is heard in a corporate tribunal in which corporations serve as judge, jury, and prosecutor.

In other words, the “partnerships” give global corporations the power to overturn democratic outcomes. Allegedly, Europe consists of democracies. Democracies pass laws protecting the environment and the safety of food and labor, but these laws democratically enacted reduce profits. Anything less than a sweatshop, with starvation wages, no environmental protection, no safety legislation for food or worker, can be overturned at will by global corporations under the terms of the “partnerships.”

Only a traitor, a well paid one, could sign such a pact.

Hillary is a terrible candidate with some of the highest negatives of any candidate in this nation's history, and for good reason. She's every bit as bad as her worst critics say she is.

What that means for Hillary is that she fades from the spotlight - for now. And whenever she does that, her poll numbers improve because people are not getting the daily reminders of what she's really like. We haven't been hearing a lot about the FBI investigation in recent weeks, and more importantly, you're not seeing Hillary speeches and interviews that remind everyone of how shrill, dishonest, entitled and insecure she is.

Now Telcordia, a Swedish-owned firm, is being compelled to rewrite the database computer code — a massive undertaking — to assuage concerns from officials at the FBI and Federal Communications Commission that foreign citizens had access to the project.

The results of this study demonstrate that a single person with access to the GEMS central tabulation system, which controls approximately 25 percent of all votes in the U.S., can use a fractional vote feature to alter election outcomes. This fractional vote counting feature is embedded into every jurisdiction that uses GEMS.

Counting votes as fractions instead of whole numbers enables the pre-setting of chosen vote percentages, in such a way that tampering can radically change election results and is unlikely to be detected by auditing or canvass procedures.

US facing a currency war over watchlist?

US markets and exporters begin the month with what some might dub a new Currency War, after the US Treasury provocatively includes Germany - the jewel in the euro - on its new forex watchlist

Germany will find itself rubbing shoulders, as well as its chin, with trading nations like China and Japan on a new currency watchlist - warning that all three faced extra scrutiny and potential retaliation by Washington as a result of concerns over growing imbalances in their trade relationship with the US.

The action comes amid continuing political pressure in the US for the Federal government to take a stronger stand against currency manipulation.

The timing is also in step with evidence of a strengthening of the Japanese yen in the wake of last week's decision by the Bank of Japan to do nothing on the monetary policy front. Markets had expected the central bank to boost economic stimulus.

The action also follows US GDP numbers last week which laid bare how a strong dollar continued to be a drag on US growth.

So, while the Federal Reserve finds itself increasingly boxed in trying to figure out if and when it might hike rates, so the dollar continues to gain and gives the US government reason to intervene.

What Do The Swiss Know That We Don't?

"Once Americans learn that Ted Cruz is not constitutionally eligible for the presidency, they quickly reject him," states Washington, D.C. law professor Victor Williams.
