SETH RICH Family Investigator ROB WHEELER Told By DC POLICE “Stand Down” – Orders From High Up

The Rich family hired Investigator Rob Wheeler to privately investigate his death, as the DC Police was not making any progress. His death was not a robbery, and it had been declared a homicide…the family wanted answers.

Wheeler found out right away that Seth Rich was the DNC leaker, which the firm hired by the DNC to investigate the leaks: Crowdstrike, immediately blamed on Russia. In fact, the DNC would not allow the FBI to investigate, hiring Crowdstrike instead.

Crowdstrike is supported by Eric Schmidt of Google, and Schmidt contributed to the Hillary Clinton campaign. The DNC clearly had a conflict of interest here, and the FBI looked the other way. This is how the Russian hacking story began. The biggest setup in history has been pulled on the American people, and it is still being played on President Trump.

In a new free E-book, best-selling libertarian author Tom Woods explains, "I have no doubt that your Facebook friends are lovely people, but you know and I know they're clueless on health care. Chapter 1 takes you through the story of government involvement in health care and how it's this that your friends -- without realizing it -- are really complaining about. Then I start interviewing real-life physicians -- including one whose cash-only practice cuts costs to consumers by 80 to 90 percent. His strategy? Secede from the government/insurance complex. The book is filled with the kind of history and analysis that -- to say the least -- you won't find in many Facebook threads. Plus: how to cut those health care bills even in the Age of Obamacare..."

When you read that Assad eats innocent babies, "Remember the Maine"!

The specific ultimate objective is to provide justification for military action. Military Action, of course, is the euphemism for war.
It was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but rejected by President Kennedy.

THAT was 1962. This is 2017. Assad butchers his own people. Assad has gassed beautiful babies. And the newest one: Assad has built a crematorium for disposing of the corpses of his enemies -- how to call him Hitler without overtly calling him Hitler.

Conclusion: The planning for these propaganda strikes -- and given that our "ultimate objective" is overthrowing the government of Syria, I can only assume that is what they are -- lies right now in files labeled TOP SECRET.

NEWLY UNSEALED RECORDS SHOW DYLANN ROOF WAS TAKING ANTIDEPRESSANTS BEFORE MASS MURDER

Dylann Roof’s mental state was hidden from jurors, according to a November report which concluded Roof suffered from delusions of grandeur and was identified as autistic. Roof was convicted in the killing of nine Black parishioners in 2015 at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston.

Make no mistake, Dylann Roof is a deranged mass murderer who slaughtered innocent people in cold blood. He deserves to die a horrid death. However, as noted below, there is a lot more to this story than what’s on the surface.

The new details about Roof’s mental state were recently unsealed. According to CNN, “The revelations came after US District Judge Richard Gergel unsealed 19 documents from competency hearings that help paint a picture of the 23-year-old’s mental state both as a teen and while he was being held in prison after the church massacre.”

Trump’s Plan Finally Becomes Clear. “War is Good for Business”

The first stage of U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to restore America’s former dominance as a “manufacturing country” will be announced this coming weekend in Riyadh Saudi Arabia and Washington DC, but its outlines are now already more than clear.

The biggest-ever foreign sale of U.S.-made weaponry will be announced at that time, and, according to a little-noticed report by Reuters on May 12th, an unidentified U.S. government official informed Reuters that “We are in the final stages of a series of deals,” whose size will be of truly extraordinary historic proportions.

Trump will announce during this, his first trip abroad as the U.S. President, starting on Friday May 19th, deals for the fundamentalist-Sunni government of Saudi Arabia to purchase more than $100 billion, and perhaps more even than $300 billion, in U.S.-made weaponry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this analysis is true (and I tend to agree with this author), we are looking at generations of endless war and destruction,so long as nuclear annihilation is not triggered.

But when the American military understands that they do not have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to assure a conventional victory against whoever is the "victim du jour" of those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged Surveilled States of America, that is when those little brass keys will be turned to unleash this country's nuclear arsenal.

Does anyone remember the Sherlock Holmes film " Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows", in which the evil Professor Moriarty was eager to see a war, any war, start in Europe, because he had a lock on both the bullets and the bandages, and would profit handsomely from the outcome of such a war?!?

The cold, hard reality here is that it won't be Donald Trump who will profit directly from these deals with Saudi Arabia; but his big-time military/industrial complex friends will , and that means big time donations to his re-election campaign, assuming he stays in office.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you....President Donald "Moriarty" Trump.

They say the recipients are leading healthy lives thanks to Rosenbaum.

The 60-year-old was arrested two years ago following a huge investigation into corruption in New Jersey.

The probe led to 46 arrests, including several rabbis, the New York Daily News reports.

In other words, marijuana legalization is now taking place in at least one state legislature, not just the ballot box.

My own view is that there has been serious deterioration in the institutions of governance over the past several decades, particularly in the area of political oversight, and that our political roller coaster will continue in the near term.

Sheer Lunacy on Campus

To reduce angst among snowflakes in its student body, the University of California, Hastings College of the Law has added a “Chill Zone.” The Chill Zone, located in its library, has, just as most nursery schools have, mats for naps and beanbag chairs. Before or after a snooze, students can also use the space to do a bit of yoga or meditate. The University of Michigan Law School helped its students weather their Trump derangement syndrome — a condition resulting from Donald Trump’s election — by enlisting the services of an “embedded psychologist” in a room full of bubbles and play dough. To reduce pressure on law students, Joshua M.

Financial Weapons Of Mass Destruction: Top 25 US Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Derivatives Exposure

The recklessness of the “too big to fail” banks almost doomed them the last time around, but apparently they still haven’t learned from their past mistakes. Today, the top 25 U.S. banks have 222 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives. In other words, the exposure that these banks have to derivatives contracts is approximately equivalent to the gross domestic product of the United States times twelve. As long as stock prices continue to rise and the U.S. economy stays fairly stable, these extremely risky financial weapons of mass destruction will probably not take down our entire financial system. But someday another major crisis will inevitably happen, and when that day arrives the devastation that these financial instruments will cause will be absolutely unprecedented.

On Tuesday, the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) captured two small villages near the recently liberated Jirah Military Airbase in the province of Aleppo. The army and the NDF took control of Bayloneh and Jarrah Sagir located west of the airbase at the road heading to the town of Tabqah. Government forces liberated the Jirah Military Base from ISIS last weekend. Since then, they have been preparing for further advances against ISIS terrorists in the province.

Israeli Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Galant has called to assasinate Syrian President Bashar Assad. Galant made the statement speaking at a conference outside Jerusalem amid the recent US allegations that Syrian security forces were conducting mass executions and were burning the bodies of the “victims.” He called that Assad’s alleged actions are a “genocide” with “hundreds of thousands killed.”

Of course, they have to be because how else can a mature economy continue to grow unless every single person levers every asset they own to the maximum extent possible and then spends all of that money? Anything less would mean that all of Janet Yellen's efforts have been a colossal waste. Meanwhile, this inherent inability to save is awful news for a nation that faces a massive wave of baby boomer retirements over the next 20 years.

US Strike Group Headed by USS Ronald Reagan Begins Patrol in Indo-Asia-Pacific

The aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, guided-missile cruiser Shiloh, guided-missile destroyers Barry, John S, are included in the patrol, as well as McCain, McCampbell and Mustin, and aircraft from the Carrier Air Wing 5.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Ronald Reagan is still contaminated from Fukushima. Will it be used as the new "USS Maine" to start a major war?

The Balfour Declaration – A Century of Jewish Power

This year, Palestinians and their supporters mark the 100th anniversary of The Balfour Declaration, a written statement from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, to Walter Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, in favour of the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine.

For Palestinians, The Balfour Declaration was the beginning of their plight: a century of ethnic cleansing at the hands of European newcomers who claim Palestine as their historic home. Yet, for some reason, supporters of the Palestinians are desperate to suppress discussion of the motivation for the Balfour Declaration - how and why did it come about?

Bill Clinton first US President to fire FBI head; Deputy WH Counsel & Hillary’s lover VINCE FOSTER [was murdered]

Since everyone is talking about how President Trump just scandalously fired FBI Director James Comey, it might be a good time for everyone to remember that Bill Clinton was the first US president to fire his FBI Director, and also to remember that the very next day, Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel [was murdered], proving this time of scandal is nothing new.

USS Carl Vinson to Remain Near Shores of Korean Peninsula in Open-Ended Mission

The US aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group, which has been stationed near the Korean peninsula since April, will remain deployed in the region for an indefinite period in the light of Pyongyang’s recent nuclear missile test, local media reported Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Call me silly, but "indefinite deployment" of the USS Carl Vinson strike group does not auger well for peace, particularly in light of the following disturbing development:

Seoul May Launch Preemptive Strike in Case of ‘Imminent’ Pyongyang Attack

The article goes on to state: "South Korea may carry out a preemptive strike if it becomes evident that North Korea will launch a massive missile attack against the country, South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-koo said Tuesday".

This statement appears to be completely at odds with South Korean President-elect Moon's "Sunshine Policy", which favors engagement with North Korea, almost as though Defense Minister Han "didn't get the memo".

So I have to wonder: Is Defense Minister Han DC's "Man" in South Korea?!? What could possibly be the agenda of making a threat like this, other than to provoke Kim Jun-un to do something completely, and irrevocably stupid?

The short answer is, there is no other reason; and that is cause for concern.

CIA is world’s most dangerously incompetent spy agency – Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has described the CIA as “dangerously incompetent,” in response to the US agency branding him a “friend of terrorists.” The war of words started after RT asked the CIA to comment on reports of its hacking exploits.

“Dictators and terrorists have no better friend in the world than Julian Assange, as theirs is the only privacy he protects,” CIA spokesperson Heather Fritz Horniak told RT in an email.

The scathing response came after RT asked the CIA to comment on the assessment of former agency analyst Ray McGovern. He suggested that the capability to falsify digital fingerprints, exposed by WikiLeaks as part of its ongoing Vault 7 disclosure, cast doubt on allegations against Russia in connection with the 2016 US presidential election.

Is Microsoft to blame for the largest ransomware attacks in internet history?

Writing in The New York Times over the weekend, sociologist Zeynep Tufekci placed the blame squarely on Microsoft for its decision to stop supporting older Windows versions. “Companies like Microsoft should discard the idea that they can abandon people using older software,” Tufekci wrote. “Industry norms are lousy to horrible, and it is reasonable to expect a company with a dominant market position, that made so much money selling software that runs critical infrastructure, to do more.”

ZDNet was even harsher. “The real problem here is that for decades the IT industry as a whole has been selling rubbish products,” a post argued. “It's become fabulously wealthy by making products that are broken to begin with, and often, directly or indirectly, charging customers to fix them.”

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ For FBI Records on ‘Trump Dossier’

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a FOIA lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for records of communications and payments between the FBI and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence

This is the fifth Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (see here, here, here, here) related to the surveillance, unmasking, and illegal leaking targeting President Trump and his associates.

The suit was filed after the Department of Justice failed to respond to a March 8, 2017, FOIA request seeking:

All records of communications between any official, employee, or representative of the FBI and Mr. Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer and the owner of the private firm Orbis Business Intelligence.

All records related to the proposed, planned, or actual payment of any funds to Mr. Steele and/or Orbis Business Intelligence.

He later got decrypted by the helpline because they thought they have largely overestimated the nation's income.

Are They Really Out to Get Trump?

The rationale Trump haters have fabricated is simple: the president and his team colluded with the Russians to rig the 2016 election in his favor, which, if true, would provide grounds for impeachment. The driving force, in terms of the argument being made, is that removing Trump must be done “for the good of the country” and to “correct a mistake made by the American voters.” The mainstream media is completely on board of the process, including the outlets that flatter themselves by describing their national stature, most notably the New York Times and Washington Post.

So what is to be done? For starters, until Donald Trump has unambiguously broken a law the critics should take a Valium and relax.

Serious vulnerability in Google Chrome on Windows could expose user credentials

Spotted by Bosko Stankovic, an information security engineer at DefenseCode LLC, the vulnerability in the default configuration of the latest version of Chrome allows malicious websites to trick users into downloading a .scf (Shell Command File format) file without prompting the user as it would typically do with other types of downloads. By bypassing this option, the malicious .scf file lies dormant in the downloads directory until a victim opens the directory, at which point the file automatically runs without the user having to click on it.

Once up and running, the file allows the attacker to gain access to a victim’s username and Microsoft LAN Manager password hash. That leaves the victim open to attacks, including a so-called Server Message Block relay attack that allows the hacker to use the credentials to authenticate to a personal computer or network resource.

Spread of combat, cholera wreaks misery, collapse in Yemen

Spilling into the hallways of crowded Yemeni hospitals, children writhe in pain from cholera. Displaced villagers roam baking hot plains and barren mountains to evade warring militias.

The escalating outbreak of disease and displacement of tens of thousands by recent fighting has inflamed one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, pushing Yemen's war-pummeled society ever nearer to collapse.

Cholera - a diarrheal disease spread by food or water tainted with human faeces - has killed 180 people in less than three weeks, according to the Geneva-based International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Samira Ali, a worried mother, expressed shock at the scene at Sabaeen Hospital in Sanaa, the ancient capital in the north held by the armed Houthi movement since late 2015.

"My young son suddenly started suffering from severe diarrhea. We went to the hospital and found it full, we couldn't find a place," said Ali, a teacher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this pandemic was deliberately started by the Saudi coalition, through fouling Yemen's water sources; it has been certainly been done before:

During the closing stages of the Rhodesian Bush War, the Rhodesian government resorted to use chemical and biological warfare agents. Watercourses at several sites inside the Mozambique border were deliberately contaminated with cholera.

As death from malnutrition stalks the country, because the US-enabled Saudi military have blocked Yemeni ports, meaning food cannot get in, starving children are most likely to get sick and die more quickly.

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition

And yet, the House of Saud; the Saudi Government; the Saudi Military; the US government and US military are completely morally comfortable with these horrific deaths by malnutrition, now coupled with this cholera pandemic.

So I have to ask myself: what kind of monsters are these people for whom the indirect slaughter and genocide of innocent kids, from malnutrition and cholera, is perfectly fine?!?

BEX ALERT - ‘You probably don’t leak the worst memo first’: Ex-DOJ official predicts Comey has more dirt on Trump

A former Department of Justice official promised MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that ousted FBI director James Comey has even more damaging evidence against President Donald Trump.

Matthew Miller, a former communications director for the Justice Department and spokesman for former attorney general Eric Holder, warned the Trump administration last week that Comey kept meticulous notes when he believed there was evidence of wrongdoing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that nothing was ever found in the Flynn investigation, it makes no sense that Trump would have asked for it to be stopped. Something tells me that we are seeing Comey's attempt at revenge.

Sheldon Adelson 'Furious' at Tillerson Over Delay in U.S. Embassy Move

Sheldon Adelson, the Republican mega-donor who gave tens of millions of dollars to President Donald Trump's election campaign and then added another five million to Trump's inauguration committee, is once again angry at the president he helped elect - according to a report published on Sunday in the newsletter Axios.

Adelson, according to the report, told people close to him that he was "furious" at the comments made by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on NBC's "Meet the Press." Tillerson said in an interview that President Trump was deliberating whether fulfilling his election promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would help the prospect of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, or hurt it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poor little Sheldon, not getting what he thought he paid for?!?

Mr. Adelson, a word, please: such a move would destroy any possibility of an Israel/Palestinian peace agreement.

But you already knew that, which is why you want such a move to go forward.

This would signal the complete American government's betrayal of the Palestinians, whose possibility of existing as a nation-state has already been preempted by the way in which Jewish-only settlements have been created, so that no contiguous state of Palestine can exist.

Umran Majid Fadil Baker told Al-Mezan, a human rights center in Gaza, that his brother was bleeding when occupation forces surrounded their vessel and arrested Muhammad, who later died in an Israeli hospital.

In the hours before Muhammad Baker was slain, Israeli forces detained six Palestinian fishermen and confiscated two boats.

The American ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday called for stiffening sanctions against North Korea and perhaps even punishing those who continue to help it, even as she acknowledged that there was no consensus yet with the North’s powerful backers in China.

“We have to turn around and tell the entire international community: You either support North Korea or you support us,” the ambassador, Nikki R. Haley, told reporters. “The United States is not past looking at third-country entities who are helping North Korea and putting sanctions against them.

South Korea Wants to Reopen Communications With North

Since his election last week, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has repeatedly made clear he wants to improve relations with North Korea. To that end, South Korean officials say their immediate priority is to reopen the lines of communication with them at all.

The biggest obstacle to doing that is the United States, and President Moon is dispatching a new Ambassador to DC. President Trump has made clear that he believes diplomacy has “failed,” and that he would only accept any discussions with North Korea under very limited circumstances, which other officials suggested meant they had to stop materially everything the US finds objectionable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Deep State in the Unhinged Surveilled States of America will do everything in its power to prevent this from happening.

So President Moon, a word please; kindly double, or treble, the personal protection detail you have around you.

The US government, and its agents, are not above assassinating heads of state they believe are not "in tune" with their agenda.

Just look at what happened to Libya's Qaddafi.

Please be communicating, diplomatically, with your Chinese counterparts, to see how they can help open the door for this dialogue to being with North Korea.

Because at the end of the day, it is only dialogue, and not war, which can achieve positive changes here.

GAO: Thousands discharged for military misconduct had mental health diagnosis

The top government watchdog said Tuesday that nearly a quarter of U.S. troops discharged for misconduct were given other-than-honorable discharges despite previously being diagnosed with a mental health condition.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) in its report faulted branches of the Department of Defense (DOD) for having policies inconsistent with — or poor enforcement of — official Pentagon rules for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) or sexual trauma.

“As a result of policy inconsistencies and limited monitoring, DOD has little assurance that certain service members diagnosed with PTSD or TBI receive the required screening and counseling prior to being separated for misconduct and that all service members, including officers, have been trained on how to identify symptoms of mild TBI in the deployed setting,” the GAO wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely stinks, and our military absolutely deserve far better than this. I would like to hope that President Trump will address this, and get this issue resolved.

Chaffetz Demands FBI Hand Over All Comey's Notes, Memos, & Recordings Related To Trump

Update: Jason Chaffetz office just released the letter sent to the FBI's Andrew McCabe demanding all Comey-Trump related memos...

Today, the New York Times reported former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey memorialized the content of phone calls and meetings with the President in a series of internal memoranda. At least one such memorandum reportedly describes a conversation in which the President referenced the FBI investigation of former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and said to Comey, "I hope you can let this go."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's official; the Deep State of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, has decided to take Trump down, and by any means necessary.

IF, in fact it happened, and I am not passing judgement at this point, this is an attempt at obstruction of justice, which is an impeachable offence.

IF it did not happen, and Trump has ways and means of proving it did not, it is Comey's "revenge porn" of the most sickening nature possible, courtesy of American partisan politics.

Cost of congestion for trucking in 2015: 1 billion hours, $63 billion

Traffic congestion on U.S. highways cost the trucking industry $63.4 billion in 2015 due to lost productivity, according to new research by the American Transportation Research Institute released Tuesday. The congestion costs for 2015 grew $13.9 billion from the congestion costs of 2014. ATRI used truck GPS data, along with data from the Federal Highway Administration, to determine that the trucking industry experienced more than 996 million hours of delays in 2015, which is equivalent to 362,243 truck drivers sitting idle for an entire working year. The average cost of congestion for the year was more than $22,000 for a truck that drove 100,000 miles or more.

UK POLICE CHARGE ACTIVIST UNDER TERRORISM LAW FOR REFUSING TO HAND OVER PASSWORDS

On Sunday May 14, Middle East Eye reported that Muhammad Rabbani, the director of human rights group CAGE that focuses on terrorism cases, was arrested after refusing to give up his phone and computer passwords while crossing the UK border in 2016. Now, the Metropolitan Police has formally charged Rabbani for obstructing an examination under a controversial piece of terrorism legislation. Experts say this may be the first arrest made for refusing to disclose a password under that specific section, and that the legislation grants police officers sweeping powers to search individuals and their devices without the approval of a judge.
