Judicial Watch Receives New Strzok/Page Records from DOJ

On Friday, government watchdog organization, Judicial Watch announced that it received 87 pages of records from the Department of Justice revealing new communications between embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, former FBI attorney, Lisa Page.

Emails between the FBI lovers revealed what Judicial Watch describes as their “profanity-laced disdain for FBI hierarchy and policies.”

Judicial Watch filed a motion for preservation order, asking that DOJ prevent Strzok and Page from deleting any “incriminating records of their communications.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last bit, about the preservation order, is crucial.

PUTIN DROPS BOMB AT HELSINKI PRESSER: Says US Intelligence Helped Move $400,000,000 to HILLARY Campaign!!

Vladimir Putin: Last year there was one extradition case by the United States… Mueller can use this treaty as an official request to us… in this case this kind of effort should be a reciprical one… For instance we can bring up Mr. Browder… They sent a huge amount of money $400,000,000 to Hillary Clinton!

Putin offered permitting officials in the US, including Mueller, to Russia to assist in their investigation of the supposed Trump-Russia collusion story. Then Putin dropped his bomb where the US could reciprocate Russia in one of their investigations –

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these accusations prove true (and you can bet that NO ONE in intelligence, justice, or defense in this country wants to touch this with a 5,000 ft. poll), this is absolutely huge.

Chris Wallace asks Putin why so many of his political enemies 'end up dead'

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Monday pushed Russian President Vladimir Putin after the leader brushed off the deaths of his political enemies.

Wallace sat down with the Russian leader in Helsinki and asked how come “so many people who were political enemies of Vladimir Putin are attacked?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of Course Wallace and Fox News Should Ask the Same Question of Hillary Clinton!

The Cape is now The Sovereign State of Good Hope

The Sovereign State of Good Hope (SSGH) took down the South African flag and hoisted their flag in Cape Town on 16 July 2018 at 11h00.

Parliament in Cape Town has been served with an Eviction Notice to vacate the property by Friday, 20 July 2018.

The Sovereign State of Good Hope is the formation of a new sovereign nation state being the result of a legitimate and lawful process of secession by the traditional hereditary tribal leader of the Khoisan Nation, Gaob (which loosely translates to King in English) Khoebaha Calvin Cornelius III.

This territory includes most of what is currently known as the Cape province of South Africa, and extends to the northern border of the Cape and ends at the Fish River on the eastern frontier.

Comey Calls For A Coup? "Patriots Needs To Reject The Behavior Of This President"

President Trump's language and demeanor at Monday's summit in Helsinki with Vladimir Putin sent his detractors on both sides of the aisle into fits, just 72 hours after the Department of Justice indicted 12 Russian officials for hacking the DNC.

Trump's position has more or less been that peace with Russia is more important than election meddling, which didn't influence the election - and that the United States has been meddling in elections for a long time, so perhaps let's mend fences and move forward as two nuclear superpowers. Also Hillary sold Russia 20% of American uranium after a bunch of people connected to the transaction heavily contributed to her foundation, which was approved by a rubber-stamp committee, four months after Bill Clinton collected $500k in a speech to a Russian investment bank during a trip where he hung out with Putin at his house. All pre-Crimea of course, so no biggie.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A small note to Tyler Durden, whose work I generally appreciate; when it comes to Crimea, sir, you have absolutely "missed the mark", and I will explain precisely why.

This, if you will turn on your mental "way back machine" to the date and time of the spring of 2014, threw the duly elected Yanukovych under the proberbial bus, and "anointed" Poroshenko as President of Ukraine in an election more crooked that is a dog's hind leg.

Even President Obama had to admit that the US took part in structuring the deal to ease Yanukovych out, and get Poroshenko in, because he was, allegedly, more Western-centric, rather than Russian centric.
Washington was behind the Ukrainian coup; Obama admits that US brokered a deal in support of regime change
United States spent 5 billion dollars for anti-government riots in Ukraine

When Crimean officials realized that there was no duly elected government in Kiev, they did two things. First, in a free and fair referendum, post-putsch, they invited their citizens to vote on whether they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or join the Russian Federation; the vote was overwhelmingly affirmative to join the Russian Federation. Then, Crimea petitioned the Russian Federation for membership, and they were granted that membership.

Peaceful self-determination is one of the most treasured elements in the UN charter to which, I believe, the US is allegedly a signatory. But in its anti-Russian agenda, this cannot be allowed to be viewed by the US or NATO as peaceful self-determination, on the part of Crimea, but an annexation by Russia, which never, ever happened here.

Consequently, we have had more Russia bashing by NATO and the US government, coupled with more economic sanctions against it.

So Tyler, before you permanently "swallow the koolaid" on this issue, that Russia annexed Crimea, you need to slow down, and acquaint yourself with the real history here, which you are bending to suit your perspective.

There was no annexation; there was a US-coordinated "regime change", causing Crimean officials to realize that there was no just, representative government in Kiev post-putsch.

Let's do something daring, and deal with reality here, shall we?!?

US government exposed: for 30 years, it broke the law on vaccine safety Jul16

For 30 years, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) broke the law regarding vaccine safety, and no one noticed or cared.

Then two men came along and discovered the scandal: Robert F Kennedy, Jr. (twitter), head of the World Mercury Project, and Del Bigtree (twitter 1, twitter 2, FB, web), the producer of the film Vaxxed. They filed papers in court, and they won their case.

Here is the issue in a nutshell: In 1986, a law, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, was passed. It insanely excused vaccine makers from legal liability stemming from unsafe vaccines and the injuries they cause. Buried in the law was a provision ordering the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to update Congress, every two years, on its efforts to improve vaccine safety.

Kennedy and Bigtree thought it would be very interesting to read these HHS reports—all 16 of them. So they filed a Freedom of Information Act request, and then…nothing. No replies.

Scientists Think NASA Caused A Mars ‘Proof Of Life’ Anomaly 40 Years Ago

To conduct the study, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research on June 20, the team reviewed the data from Viking landers to check if anything was overlooked. After all, the team also strongly believed that all terrestrial living things should contain organic material, meaning the Viking landers should have discovered something in 1976.

In 2008, the spacecraft Phoenix found a salt in the Martian soil. This salt, called perchlorate, is rare on Earth but is used to make fireworks because it explodes when exposed to high temperatures.

In 2014, Mars Curiosity found organic molecules on Mars. One of the materials discovered was chlorobenzene: a molecule that is created when carbon materials are burned with perchlorate.

Company Hikes Price Of "Cadillac" Ambien Nasal Spray By 800% As Drug Companies Defy Trump

While Pfizer and several drugmakers have loudly touted their decision to roll back some price hikes on popular drugs following pressure from President Trump and the rollout of a new California law designed to discourage drug companies from raising prices, others have continued hiking prices of thousands of drugs. According to Raymond James & Associates drug companies have raised prices 3,653 times on 1,045 different drugs so far this year (drug companies often do one round of price hikes in January and another in the early summer). And according to the Wall Street Journal, the biggest price increases have been reserved for so-called "Cadillac" drugs like a new spray form of the sleeping medication Ambien.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Drug companies do this

a: Because they can, and

b: Drug companies spend a lot of money on Presidential campaigns, so they know that the final "slap", once they have raised prices through the roof, will generally be quite mild.

The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

Ron Paul calls Trump-Putin meeting 'a success': 'This was significant diplomacy'

Despite bipartisan backlash, former Republican Rep. Ron Paul echoed his son’s praise of President Trump’s meeting with President Vladimir Putin, calling it “significant diplomacy” that was “very worthwhile.”

“I would say that this was significant diplomacy,” Mr. Paul, a libertarian and former Republican presidential candidate, said Monday on his web show “Liberty Report.”

“It has to be that the neocons aren’t very happy because Trump sounded pretty reasonable,” he added. “And I think Trump won on this. And I don’t think Putin was seen in a bad light.”

Army Starts Testing "Ironman-Like" Exoskeleton For Future Hybrid Wars

As discussed previously, the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command, or TRADOC, drafted a new strategy for how soldiers will operate, fight, and campaign successfully across multiple domains—space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime—against all enemies (Russia and China) in the 2025-2040 timeframe.

Warrior Maven has confirmed that the Army is literally "gearing up" for decades of hybrid conflict, and in doing so, testing and prototyping self-generating “Ironman-like” soldier exoskeletons. These “breakthrough” suits are designed to transform the combat mission by supporting soldier movements, generating electricity, powering weapons systems and substantially lowering the weight burden of what soldiers carry on the modern battlefield.

The technologies [exoskeleton suits] we are developing can produce electricity, which can be stored and used to power batteries. This increases the longevity of a mission, decreases the need for resupply and reduces the logistics trail,” Sharps explained.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"the Army is literally "gearing up" for decades of hybrid conflict" !?!?!?

Dear Lord, if any country on the planet needs a Department of Peace, it is the unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, and right the heck now!!!!

US "Super Spy" Program May Explain Mysterious Diplomat Brain Injuries

Over the past two years there have been increasing reports of supposed “sonic injuries” among US diplomats. First in Cuba and more recently in China. Controversial implications are that the US officials may have been maliciously targeted by a “sonic weapon” in host countries. However, a more likely explanation is that the alleged victims are the result of US attempts to create “super spies”.

Some 250 US diplomats in China are reportedly undergoing neurological medical tests to ascertain if they have succumbed to the same kind of brain trauma diagnosed in other colleagues. A study of 21 diplomats evacuated from Cuba found last year that they had incurred brain injuries, but, it was diagnosed, not from physical impact to their heads.

Some factors so far missing from the subject need to be addressed.

First, it seems strange that the mysterious brain injuries are only reported by US diplomats. No other country has reported similar incidents among their diplomatic staff.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This certainly seems to be an "Occam's razor" approach to the problems presented here, and make far more sense than any of the outrageous charges presented against both Cuba and China.

Radioactive waste from 43 nuclear explosions is LEAKING into the Pacific because a reinforced concrete dome built by the US military on an island to store it is disappearing under the sea

A concrete dome holding the radioactive waste of 43 nuclear explosions is leaking into the ocean, veterans have warned.

The Enewetak Atoll was used by the US government to test 30 megatons of weapons – equivalent to 2,000 Hiroshima blasts – between 1948 and 1958.

More than 8,000 people, including US troops, would later work to clean up these Pacific islands, shifting 110,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil and debris into a blast crater.

This 30-foot-deep crater on Runit Island would then be entombed in a concrete dome, 350 feet across and 16 inches thick.

But now, with the dome weathered by decades of exposure, it's feared that rising seas and storms could see radiation leaking into the ocean.

Mass Migration: "The Fatal Solvent Of The EU"

"Far from leading to fusion, Europe's migration crisis is leading to fission", Stanford's historian Niall Ferguson recently wrote. "Increasingly, I believe that the issue of migration will be seen by future historians as the fatal solvent of the EU". Week after week, Mr. Ferguson's prediction seems to be turning into a reality.

Not only does Europe continue to fragment as anti-immigration sentiment gathers political strength, but, as a result of the migrant crisis, the EU's border-free internal zone, Europe's most cherished prize after the Second World War, is now defined as "at risk" by the Italian government, among other governments, such and Austria.

Immigration is also redefining the intra-EU contract.

The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, the so called "Visegrad Group", recently called for EU border defense. "We have to have a Europe capable of defending us", Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said as well, after he was invited to join the Visegrad meeting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problems here are apt to get far worse before they get better.

Of course, one thing which would help enormously, would be the US stopping these wars of conquest in North Africa, Afghanistan, and the Middle East, by way of controlling things like the oil, the rare earth minerals, and (in Afghanistan) the opium, where these wars are causing people to be massively displaced in these areas.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that last one.

Defence Secretary unveils £2billion plan for a British-made stealth plane that can fly either with a pilot or as a DRONE after the UK was cut out of a French-German fighter plan project

The Defence Secretary unveiled a £2billion plan for a British-made stealth plane today.

Gavin Williamson said the 'Tempest' concept aircraft was designed to be able either with a pilot or as a drone.

The vision for the state of the art jet comes after Britain was excluded from a French-German project for a new fighter plane.

Any new aircraft is unlikely to fly before 2035, even if it gets off the drawing board at all.

The concept aircraft has been put together by British firms including BAE Systems, Leonardo, MBDA and Rolls-Royce, which have joined together with the RAF Rapid Capabilities Office to form 'Team Tempest' to pursue the opportunity.

Pat Buchanan: "Trump Calls Off Cold War II"

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org.

Beginning his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, President Trump declared that U.S. relations with Russia have “never been worse.”

He then added pointedly, that just changed “about four hours ago.”

It certainly did. With his remarks in Helsinki and at the NATO summit in Brussels, Trump has signaled a historic shift in U.S. foreign policy that may determine the future of this nation and the fate of his presidency.

He has rejected the fundamental premises of American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and blamed our wretched relations with Russia, not on Vladimir Putin, but squarely on the U.S. establishment.

In a tweet prior to the meeting, Trump indicted the elites of both parties: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even Pat Buchanan makes the revisionist historian mistake with Crimea's choice to align with the Russian Federation, after the 2014 putsch in Kiev.

This, if you will turn on your mental "way back machine" to the date and time of the spring of 2014, threw the duly elected Yanukovych under the proberbial bus, and "anointed" Poroshenko as President of Ukraine in an election more crooked that is a dog's hind leg.

Even President Obama had to admit that the US took part in structuring the deal to ease Yanukovych out, and get Poroshenko in, because he was, allegedly, more Western-centric, rather than Russian centric.

If you watched the Trump-Putin press meeting you heard a lot of hot air, during and after.

Did ANY news outlet -right or left – follow up on that?

No – but Brasscheck did.

AP Investigation: Doctors Keep Licenses Despite Sex Abuse

An Associated Press investigation finds that even as Hollywood moguls, elite journalists and politicians have been pushed out of their jobs or resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct, the world of medicine is more forgiving.

Even when doctors are disciplined, their punishment often consists of a short suspension paired with therapy that treats sexually abusive behavior as a symptom of an illness or addiction.

The investigation finds that decades of complaints that the physician disciplinary system is too lenient have led to little change in the practices of state medical boards.

Children start classes in Khan al-Ahmar school facing Israeli demolition

Children started their first day of classes in Khan al-Ahmar’s school on Monday.

The Palestinian school year typically starts at the beginning of September, but classes began early to try to halt the imminent demolition of the school in the occupied West Bank village.

The school was built in 2009 out of rubber tires and mud in an attempt to evade Israel’s restrictions on Palestinians using cement for construction. It has been under constant threats of demolition by Israel.

It is the only school in the area that is accessible to 160 children from five villages, Human Rights Watch stated.

Israeli occupation forces set up roadblocks at the entrances of the village, making it difficult for students from nearby communities to reach the school.

Scam artist kidnapped with nearly €2 million of fake money at Hilton in Milan

A 21-year-old French woman was kidnapped at the Hilton Milan by four armed men as she was about to scam four Indian business people with a suitcase of mainly fake money.

It sounds like a surreal comedy of errors. And in many ways it was.

The woman was carrying a suitcase with €2million euro, mainly fake bank notes, when she was kidnapped from the lobby at the Hilton Hotel in Milan by four armed men of Albanian origin.

Guests at the hotel reported to authorities seeing four armed men escort the woman out of the hotel. The police at first thought it was a standard kidnapping, until they realized that the woman herself had been at the hotel to try and scam four Indian business people.

A Sardonic View From France To The Helsinki One-On-One Summit

The Senate committee in charge of Russian interference (translation: Trump’s liquidation) confirmed the initial claims of the “thirteen intelligence agencies” that the Russians wanted Trump elected. This is the polar opposite of the same commission in the House of Representatives that has powerfully demonstrated that this Russian affair was an artificial construction of the hegemonic lobby of Anglo-Saxon espionage. Thus, a few days before Helsinki, the Senate gave the one-party media an opportunity to change the subject and put Putin in the position of the accused and Trump as a foreign agent.

Unipolar Imperial Spin: How Liberalism Operationalizes The ANTIFA New Left

Antifa came into history as Antifaschtische Aktion, a coalition of militant leftist groups involved with the Communist Party of Germany in the 1930s. Far-left militants have had a history of opposing fascism ever since Mussolini’s black-clad paramilitary stomped their way throughout Italy in the 1920’s. These groups didn’t exist in a vacuum, and were rooted in the fighting militant labor unions and syndicates 80 years ago. In other words, an entirely different class basis and ideological orientation than antifa today. However, the west has undergone vast material, cultural, and spiritual changes since the Second World War. New ideological superstructures and imperialist directives have formed; And, in response, new tactics of resistance have come into play. In the midst of new political circumstances, strategically identifying new friends and new enemies is of necessity.

Facebook, Google 'manipulate' users to share data despite EU law: Norwegian study

Facebook and Google are pushing users to share private information by offering "invasive" and limited default options despite new EU data protection laws aimed at giving users more control and choice, a Norwegian government study said Wednesday.
The Norwegian Consumer Council found that the US tech giants' privacy updates clash with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which forces companies to clarify what choices people have when sharing private information.

"These companies manipulate us into sharing information about ourselves," the council's director of digital services, Finn Myrstad, said in a statement.

"(This) is at odds with the expectations of consumers and the intention of the new Regulation," the 2018 study, entitled "Deceived By Design", concluded.

Myrstad said the practices showed "a lack of respect for their users, and are circumventing the notion of giving consumers control of their personal data".

Riverdale alumni express outrage after elite NYC school cancels Israeli-Palestinian conflict class following parent pressure

However, one thing is certain: Joel Doerfler had no involvement whatsoever. He was neither in the classroom, nor in any way implicated in how another teacher responded to a discussion with his students. There is no reason why an incident involving Mr. Redden should have had any bearing on Mr. Doerfler.

Nonetheless, a group of Riverdale parents, some of whom no longer have children at the school, used the incident as an opportunity to attack Joel Doerfler. Following Mr. Redden’s suspension, this group of parents launched what appears to be a smear campaign against Mr. Doerfler and his course on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Their efforts culminated in a forum of parents and administrators in the school auditorium, where Mr. Doerfler was attacked on political grounds.

Israeli minister: Israeli jets should drop bombs over the heads of Gaza children

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennet has insisted that Israeli warplanes should drop bombs over the heads of Palestinian children flying kites into Israel, Ynet Net News reported.

During the meeting of the Israeli Security Cabinet on Sunday, which convened to discuss the latest Israeli attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip, Bennet said: “Why not shoot anyone who launches aerial weapons at our communities, and at the cells?

“There is no legal impediment. Why shoot next to them and not directly at them? These are terrorists for all intents and purposes.”

Broad support for Palestinian rights and a boycott of Israel in Spain’s largest cities

The international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has said that a number of major cities in Spain announced their strong support last month for the rights of the Palestinian people. They also condemned the decision of President Donald Trump to transfer the US Embassy to Jerusalem, as well as the recent Israeli massacres in Gaza.

In a report issued by the movement on Monday, it explained that the City Council of the Spanish capital Madrid condemned the indiscriminate and disproportionate use of force by the Israeli occupying forces against Palestinian civilians and called for an end to the illegal blockade imposed on more than 2 million Palestinians in Gaza.

In Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain, there was support for the Palestinian call to stop arming Israel. The Barcelona City Council voted by an overwhelming majority to impose a comprehensive military embargo on Israel and urged the Spanish government to ensure its implementation.

Israeli soldiers fired ‘deliberate shots’ at slain Palestinian paramedic, NGO finds

Israeli soldiers killed slain Palestinian paramedic Razan al-Najjar with “deliberate shots”, an investigation by Israeli human rights NGO B’Tselem has concluded.

B’Tselem contrasted the findings of their investigation with “the changing versions supplied by the IDF Spokesperson” and concluded that “a routine of whitewashing [by Israeli authorities] ensures very slim chances of anyone being held accountable”.

According to B’Tselem, during a 1 June protest in the occupied Gaza Strip, Israeli soldiers “deliberately fired at Palestinian paramedics wearing medical crew uniforms who were 25 meters from the fence”, killing Razan, and wounding two others.

At approximately 6pm, “a group of paramedics approached the fence to evacuate two young men suffering from teargas inhalation”, B’Tselem recounted. “The paramedics were wearing identifying uniforms and, as they approached, kept their hands up in the air”.

EU slams Israeli government attempts to conflate terrorism and BDS

European Union (EU) foreign minister Federica Mogherini sent a strongly-worded rebuke to Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, slamming his ministry’s “vague and unsubstantiated” claims that Brussels is financing “terrorism” and the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaign.

The letter, sent to Erdan on 5 July and obtained by Haaretz, also criticises the Israeli government for seeking to conflate “terrorism with the boycott issue”, efforts Mogherini described as “inopportune and misleading”, and liable to create “unacceptable confusion in the public eye regarding these two distinct phenomena”.

Mogherini was responding to a report published in May by the Strategic Affairs Ministry titled “The millions given by EU institutions to NGOs with ties to terror and boycotts against Israel”.

Israeli Knesset Passes “Breaking The Silence” Bill

The Israeli Knesset approved, on Monday night, the “Breaking The Silence” bill, granting the Minister of Education the power to prevent peace activists from the organization “Breaking the Silence” from entering schools, or to talking to students about their organization.

The approved bill passed with 43 Knesset members voting in favor, while 24 opposed it; in the wording of the bill, it describes Breaking the Silence members, former Israeli soldiers who decided to speak out against the ongoing military violations against the Palestinian people, as “external elements that act against the Israeli military, and the educational system.”

The Maan News Agency quoted Breaking The Silence as stating that Israel is now taking action to silence the activists, after using other means to try to stop them from speaking out against the Israeli occupation and its illegal practices.

Engineer Raed Fattouh, the chairman of the coordination committee for the entry of goods into the Gaza Strip, said the Israeli side has officially informed the Palestinians that it is closing Karem Abu Salem Crossing, which is used for the entry of goods into the coastal region, until further notice.

Fattouh added that Israel cited “security considerations” for shutting the crossing down, and said that only limited types of food supply, and medicine, will be allowed through.

Let’s talk about “We Will Not Allow Gaza To Be Rebuilt”

Israeli President Reuvin Rivlin speaks as though Israel has Gaza’s best interests in mind, but a little digging proves his words to be utterly disingenuous. Israel blockaded Gaza to begin with, so it is no hero when it occasionally allows a trickle of humanitarian aid across the border; Israel continues to consider Hamas an existential threat when in reality Hamas is too weak to inflict damage; and Israel calls for the release of 2 POWs and remains of 2, all the while holding thousands in detention and remains of at least 26.

Putin Claims U.S. Intelligence Agents Funneled $400 Million To Clinton Campaign

Vladimir Putin made a bombshell claim during Monday's joint press conference with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, when the Russian President said some $400 million in illegally earned profits was funneled to the Clinton campaign by associates of American-born British financier Bill Browder - at one time the largest foreign portfolio investors in Russia. The scheme involved members of the U.S. intelligence community, said Putin, who he said "accompanied and guided these transactions."

Browder made billions in Russia during the 90's. In December, a Moscow court sentenced Browder in absentia to nine years in prison for tax fraud, while he was also found guilty of tax evasion in a separate 2013 case. Putin accused Browder's associates of illegally earning over than $1.5 billion without paying Russian taxes, before sending $400 million to Clinton.

Mandalay Bay owners sue 1 October shooting victims. No liability for air assault via helicopter?

If you are a reader then you know that it is well documented that most likely there were no shots were fired from the alleged 1 October shooter Stephen Paddock’s 32nd-floor hotel room nor were the windows broken at the time of the shooting or at the time of the breach because it’s likely that a good portion of the attack was carried out from the air via helicopter. (i.e. the attack was primarily an air assault with multiple ground-based shooters)

FLASHBACK - Was TWA 800 Shot Down By a Military Missile?

FLASHBACK - JFK Jr. - Why the official story is in doubt.

We live in a time of very unpleasant realities. Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government of the United States and the media have started (to put it politely) economizing it. Documented cases of media deception over the years have made it clear that the media lies to the public on important issues. As Richard Salent, Former President of CBS News has stated, media's job is to feed the public what media thinks the public ought to know. Clearly, anything that happens that the media doesn't think the public needs to know about will simply not be reported.

911: The impossible Cell Phone calls

I chat to Frederick C. Blackburn (also known as blackbird9) who studied engineering and then became an electrical engineer and had a career in IT. He had a Top Secret clearance in the USA. He gave lectures to: Military and Naval Intelligence personnel as well as NSA, CIA and FBI personnel about cell phone and other technology.

We discuss his specialist knowledge with regard to cell phones and why the cell phone technology of 911 did not allow cell phone calls to be received from people in planes. On 911 there were between 15-40 alleged cell phone calls from people on aircraft before the planes crashed into the Twin Towers or elsewhere. Frederick explains why those phone calls were impossible. 911 changed his life because he realised immediately that the collapsing towers as well as the cell phone calls were utterly impossible.

Tolerating the Painful Ignorance of a Free Press

Liberal “reporters” are utterly incapable of honesty, much less objectivity. They hate genuine heroes, because a hero is something they can never be. These haters of guns and gun-owners would rather see innocent people murdered than have to report that active murderers have been thwarted by legally-armed citizen/heroes.

Insurers aren't keeping up on cover for downloaded photos, videos, and music - and some WON'T accept claims for computer viruses

What value would you place on the music, photos, and videos you've bought online and downloaded to your phone or computer? And if they were lost, if a virus infected your computer for example, would you be able to claim it back?

The majority of home insurance policies, while covering physical contents in a person's home, do not specify which digital products they cover, new research claims.

There is also a huge discrepancy between what's covered, the amount you can claim for them, and the policy exclusions.

China's £1.7bn raid for British tech talent... as another UK chip firm falls into Beijing hands

China has spent a record £1.8billion in six months buying British companies and technology as it plots to develop its own digital giants.

Companies backed by the Beijing government have launched an assault on chip makers and digital firms since the start of the year.

Yesterday another UK firm was about to fall into Chinese hands with chip- maker Telit targeted for its technology which provides cars with software that recognises road lanes and parking assistance.

The deal will see it sold for £80million to TUS International, a company controlled by a Beijing university.

Overall nearly £17billion of takeover deals were announced by Chinese companies in Europe in the first half of 2018, according to a study by law firm Baker McKenzie and research group Rhodium Group.

FAA FOIA request for 1 October helicopter flight radar data denied as federal cover-up of potential belt-fed gunship attack continues

Editor’s note: This article is not implying or insinuating guilt. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed December 6, 2017, seeking “primary and secondary surveillance radar” return data from McCarran International Airport (KLAS) in a “byte for byte format” between the hours of 7 p.m. and 1 p.m. on the night of the 1 October shooting and a separate FOIA request seeking video surveillance footage of the airport’s “western edge” runways and “specifically the helicopter pads from both Sundance and Maverick Helicopters” between the hours of 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. and all “air traffic control recordings of ground and terminal communications from KLAS and the helicopters” between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. was denied by the Federal Aviation Administration which ultimately cited “contemporaneous criminal investigations into those same events” after several months of correspondence.

Safety fears over revolutionary gene-editing tool: Crispr causes unwanted mutations in DNA that may prove dangerous and have been 'seriously underestimated', warn researchers

Scientists have warned the genetic damage caused by the Crispr/Cas9 technology - known as Crispr - have been 'seriously underestimated before now'.

They have uncovered evidence the gene-editing tool causes unwanted mutations that may prove dangerous - and is 'much less safe' than once thought.

Critics fear Crispr may be used to 'snip' damaging genes from children before they are born, such as those that cause Huntington's disease or blindness.

Others remain concerned it could create 'designer babies' by allowing parents to choose their hair colour, height or even traits such as intelligence.

The study adds to the worries, as scientists found Crispr can introduce hundreds of potentially harmful mutations that standard tests may not spot.

Some trials have made similar findings, with a study last month claiming the tool could cause cancer by making cells less able to repair DNA damage.
