Bombing resumes in Aleppo as Syria army ends ceasefire

LINK FIXED!

Damascus says truce is over and claims 'terrorists' have used seven-day lull to rearm while committing 300 violations.

Shells and bombs rained down on rebel-held eastern Aleppo on Monday soon after Syria's army declared an end to a week-long ceasefire agreed between Russia and the United States.

Damascus and its ally Moscow blamed rebels for the collapse of the truce,but Washington said the terms had not been met for a key aspect of the deal - US-Russia cooperation against militants.

FBI Probing Minnesota Mass Stabbing As Possible Terrorism

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has launched an investigation into Saturday’s stabbing spree at a mall in Minnesota, treating it as a “potential act of terrorism.”

The attack took place on Saturday night, when the knife-wielding attacker, dressed in a private security uniform, went on a rampage inside a mall in St. Cloud and stabbed 8 people before being gunned down by an off-duty police officer.

It is rainin steel in Aleppo!

Heavy bombing pummelled rebel-held parts of Aleppo on Monday, an AFP correspondent in the city said, less than two hours after Syria's army announced the end of a week-long truce.
Air strikes hit five eastern neighbourhoods of the battleground city, while heavy shelling was heard coming from Aleppo's southern outskirts.

Hillary Clinton Cancels Event in California, Campaign Says Pneumonia is Back

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has again cancelled an event in California as a result of her health and the campaign is claiming she is being treated for pneumonia. The cancelation marks the third day–following Monday and Tuesday of last week–that the candidate’s health has pulled her from the campaign trail.

Questions surrounding her health ramped up after she collapsed at the 15th memorial service for the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

‘Obvious Act Of Terrorism’: Authorities Hesitant To Link NYC, NJ Cases Despite Similarities

While concluding that the Saturday night explosion in Manhattan was likely an act of terrorism, according to New York Governor Cuomo, authorities are yet to link the NYC blast with a similar incident that happened hours earlier in New Jersey.

A massive investigation is underway looking for possible links between the five improvised explosive devices (IED) that were discovered in New York City and those in New Jersey.

The George Soros Email Hack: Top 10 Machinations of a Master Manipulator

A recent email hack has revealed the vast and stunning influence of NWO master manipulator, George Soros.

The recent George Soros email hack – the hacking and release of 2500+ emails and documents release by DCLeaks – shows black-and-white proof of the machinations, manipulations and massively long reach of Hungarian-born multi-billionaire, top Hillary Clinton donor, arch manipulator and big-time New World Order insider George Soros

Future aid to Ukraine in jeopardy over gas monopoly takeover

Ukraine may lose hundreds of millions of dollars in aid after a surprise decision by the government to take direct control over the country's gas production and transportation company.

The takeover may be in violation of the $17.5 billion bailout deal with international creditors and comes just days after Kiev received a $1 billion tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“If all the facts we have learned from third parties are confirmed, we are very disturbed and this development is very serious,” said Anton Usov, a spokesperson for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, quoted by the Financial Times.

According to the newspaper, another lender to Ukraine, the World Bank, is also concerned about the situation with Naftogaz.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ukrainians are not going to be happy in dealing with high energy costs (if they can even get it) coupled with freezing temperatures this winter!!

This Is Hilarious: Man Shouts “Hillary For Prison” And Clinton Responds With “Let’s Make It Happen!” - Mac Slavo

You’d think we’re making up the follow incident involving Hillary Clinton, but luckily, just like her recent medical emergency, it was all caught on video.

Paul Joseph Watson explains:

Hillary Clinton was caught in an embarrassing moment when someone at her rally yelled “Hillary for prison!”, to which the presidential candidate responded, “Let’s make it happen!”

The cringeworthy moment was captured on film.

Given her now notorious propensity for being constantly “confused,” Hillary probably thought the man was saying “Hillary for president!,” but nothing could be further from the truth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the Democratic National Party's office of "You Can't Make this Sh*t up!!!"

US Desperately Pumps "Humanitarian" Smokescreen For Failing Syria Ceasefire

Washington’s lie about seeking a genuine ceasefire in Syria is in danger of being exposed for the world to see. So, hilariously, a charade is being hurriedly orchestrated in order to hide this ignominy. As usual, the Syrian government is being scapegoated for the real cause of violence in the country. That real cause is Washington’s state-sponsored terrorist-fueled war for regime change.

After four days of continuing deadly breaches by US-backed «rebels» since the Kerry-Lavrov ceasefire deal was implemented last Monday, Washington and the dutiful Western mainstream media are preparing the inevitable excuses.

Rather than focusing on ongoing «rebel» violence in contravention of the truce, US Secretary of State John Kerry fingered the Syrian government for preventing humanitarian access to insurgent-held eastern Aleppo as the reason for why the ceasefire is in danger of collapsing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wounded animals are dangerous.

And right now, the Clinton Cartel and their minions are feeling ...desperately wounded, by what might appear to some as a resounding, potential presidential triumph by Donald Trump.

Unfortunately, the closer it appears that Trump will win this election handily, the closer we are to a potential war against Russia, China, and Korea, as "payback" to Trump, even before he has had the opportunity to take the Oath of Office in January.

Democratic operatives will be ruthless in setting up Trump to fail, even if it means starting shooting wars with Russia, China, and Korea.

CHICAGO POLICE TO UNDERGO MANDATORY 'DE-ESCALATION' TRAINING

The Chicago Police Department launched mandatory training designed to help officers de-escalate conflicts, including situations involving the use of force and mental health issues.

The program, which Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is scheduled to discuss Monday evening, is among several department reforms following the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The black teenager was shot 16 times in 2014 by a white Chicago police officer. Graphic squad-car video of the shooting was released last year, prompting citywide protests, police leadership changes and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation.

The training at the Chicago Police Academy, which is in its second week, was developed with a panel of national policing and mental health experts. It uses live scenarios and exercises to help officers better assess how to respond to complex and tense situations. Some of the tactics include using slower and calmer approaches when possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This de-escalation training should be going on nationally, right now.

More than 800 immigrants mistakenly granted citizenship

The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department's inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren't caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot begin to articulate just how safe and protected this screw-up makes me feel; if THIS is the level of "professionalism" we can expect, collectively, from the Department of Homeland Security, and the other involved agencies, then all the people in all the critical departments need to be collectively fired, and people who can actually do the job, hired!!

Russia Condemns Obama’s Decision to Conduct Illegal Air Strikes against Syrian Forces, Washington’s Objective was to Protect ISIS Terrorists

“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.

“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.

“The beginning of work of the Joint Implementation Group was supposed to be September 19. So if the US wanted to conduct an effective strike on Al-Nusra or ISIS, in Deir ez-Zor or anywhere else, they could wait two more days and coordinate with our military and be sure that they are striking the right people.”

“Instead they chose to conduct this reckless operation,”

“So it may well be, one has to conclude, that the airstrike has been conducted in order to derail the operation of the Joint Implementation Group and actually prevent it from being set in motion,” …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that such US/Israeli/Australian attacks against Syrian forces, and perhaps - soon - against Russian forces in Syria- will be happening as well.

The goal of these attacks will be to goad Russia into a military response against US military assets, and the moment that happens, we will be looking at war with Russia.

Also, as reported at globalresearch.ca yesterday:

The ISIS launched attacks on the Syrian army positions in Deir Ezzor only 7 minutes after the US-led coalition’s airstrikes on Saturday, a military source said, adding that the air and ground assault were highly coordinated, According to FNA report. The source said after the coalition’s pounding of the Syrian army near Deir Ezzor airbase, the ISIS could take full control of al-Tharda mountain and then Deir Ezzor military base, adding that the army and national defense forces deployed near the airbase immediately won it back from the terrorists by launching a counterattack. Noting that Deir Ezzor is now almost in tranquility and no change has occurred in the military map of the region, the source said by attacking the Syrian army positions, the US seeks to prevent military operations to break the terrorists’ siege on the city.

And I have to ask myself; how could this not be true, if it only took ISIS 7 minutes after the US-lead coalition bombing attacks to attack this position?!?

Native Americans Document Hundreds of Pipeline Leaks and Oil Spills Kept Secret by North Dakota Government

North Dakota’s oil frenzy is leaking like a sieve. You most likely have not heard about it because fracking companies, pipeline owners, and state officials have been keeping information about hundreds of oil spills secret for years.

According to Natives News, After a huge spill of more than 20,000 barrels on a wheat farm was hushed up for 11 days, the Associated press discovered the extent of the years-long cover up:

Records obtained by the AP show that so far this year, North Dakota has recorded 139 pipeline leaks that spilled a total of 735 barrels of oil. In 2012, there were 153 pipeline leaks that spilled 495 barrels of oil, data shows.

A little more than half of the spills companies reported to North Dakota occurred “on-site,” where a well is connected to a pipeline, and most were fewer than 10 barrels. The remainder of the spills occurred along the state’s labyrinth of pipelines.

America, the Helpless ‘Superpower’

On a late summer Saturday night in the Chelsea district of New York City an explosion caused by an IED that injured 29 people shook the nation: a second bomb was discovered a few blocks from the first site and disabled. This was preceded by a pipe bomb going off at the site of a benefit run for families of US Marines in Seaside, New Jersey, a mere ninety minutes away: multiple devices were found at the same location and were disabled. Injuries were prevented only because the event was delayed due to the size of the crowd; five thousand people would have been in proximity otherwise. To top it off, a person invoking Allah stabbed eight people at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota – albeit not before first asking them if they were Muslim. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the stabbing spree, dubbing the perpetrator a “soldier of Islam.”

Imagine you are a visitor from Mars, watching all this from a very great height. Surely two aspects of this are striking:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I must speculate: these come at a time when the accusations regarding "pay for play" political appointments reach all the way up to the Oval Office, and the US military has bombed Syrian troops with white phosphorous weapons, which is a war crime.

Right now, things feel to me just as they did right after the Boston Marathon bombings, which - again - happened under President Obama's watch. And one wonders: what was going on at that time which was critically suppressed because of coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings?!?

As reported by CNN that day,

2. UKRAINE CRISIS Now what? A Ukrainian government deadline for pro-Russian protesters to lay down their arms and leave occupied buildings passed early today with no sign of it being heeded in the eastern cities of Donetsk and Slaviansk. The protesters were given until 2 a.m. ET to disarm or face a "full-scale anti-terrorist operation" by its armed forces. But the deadline passed with no movement at the regional government building in Donetsk, which has been occupied for more than a week. Previous deadlines have passed with no consequence. NATO says Russian armed forces are massing on Ukraine's eastern border and could invade, while Moscow says they are merely carrying out military exercises.

(Remember: the US/Soros organization and the IMF generated the putsch in Ukraine which unseated Yanukovich and anointed Poroshenko as President of Ukraine. Poroshenko's presidency continues, two years on, to be going very badly for the US government)

The Veteran's Administration scandal was about to break:

The Veterans Health Administration scandal of 2014 is a reported pattern of negligence in the treatment of United States military veterans. Critics charged that patients at the VHA hospitals had not met the target of getting an appointment within 14 days. In some hospitals, the staff falsified appointment records to appear to meet the 14-day target. Some patients died while they were on the waiting list; reports differ about whether they died because of the delay. Many VHA managers were fired as a result. Defenders agreed that it was unacceptable to falsify data, but the 14-day target was unrealistic in understaffed facilities like Phoenix, and most private insurers didn't meet a 14-day target either. By most measures, the VHA system provides "excellent care at low cost," wrote Paul Krugman, who believes that the attack on the VHA system are motivated by conservatives who want to discredit a government program that works well. Conservative legislators have proposed privatizing the VHA, and legislative reforms will make it easier for veterans to go to private doctors. CNN reported on April 30, 2014 that at least 40 United States Armed Forces veterans died while waiting for care at the Phoenix, Arizona, Veterans Health Administration facilities. By June 5, 2014, Veterans Affairs internal investigations had identified 35 veterans who had died while waiting for care in the Phoenix VHA system.[1] An investigation of delays in treatment throughout the Veterans Health Administration system is being conducted by the Veterans Affairs Office of the Inspector General,[2][3][4] and the House has passed legislation to fund a $1 million criminal investigation by the Justice Department.[5] On May 16, 2014, the Veterans Health Administration's top health official, Dr. Robert Petzel, retired early at the request of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki.[6][7] On May 30, 2014, Secretary Shinseki resigned from office amid the fallout from the controversy.[8][9

Is the US government above recruiting "patsies" like the Tsarnaev brothers, then keep them held in suspension until a "major distraction" is needed, then place them into play at just the right moment, to keep people from focusing on critically important issues?!?

The short answer is, no.

But the "new normal", at least inside this country, is that the United States government is thoroughly impotent to protect any American from any kind of chaos; may have, in fact, created the chaos, and is very happy with the situation as it is, because fear deflects focused, clear thinking.

The House Intelligence Committee’s Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Snowden Report

Late yesterday afternoon the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a three-page executive summary (four, if we count the splendid cover photo) of its two-year inquiry into Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency (NSA) disclosures. On first reading, I described it as an “aggressively dishonest” piece of work.

With a day or so to reflect on it, I believe it’s worse than that. The report is not only one-sided, not only incurious, not only contemptuous of fact.

It is trifling.

After twenty-five months of labor, the committee’s “comprehensive review” of an immensely complex subject weighs in at thirty-six pages. (None of which we may read, because it “must remain classified.”) I have graded college term papers that long. It is one more dispiriting commentary on the state of legislative oversight that the committee’s twenty-two members, Republican and Democratic, were unanimous in signing their names.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Snowden did should start a conversation among Americans as to just how their country is being governed, and that is very critical that we have this conversation.

Every 72 minutes, a veteran commits suicide

NYPD can’t count cash they’ve seized because it would crash computers

The New York City Police Department takes in millions of dollars in cash each year as evidence, often keeping the money through a procedure called civil forfeiture. But as New York City lawmakers pressed for greater transparency into how much was being seized and from whom, a department official claimed providing that information would be nearly impossible—because querying the 4-year old computer system that tracks evidence and property for the data would "lead to system crashes."

ISIS Overruns Syrian Army Base After US Bombings

In the defense of the Deir Ezzor Airport, the Syrian military has long depended on an army base in Jebel Tharda to repel ISIS advances. That base has been lost this weekend, after a disastrous series of US-led airstrikes killed a large number of Syrian troops defending the base, and ISIS quickly overran what was left.

For over 20 minutes, the coalition warplanes attacked the base. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the attack killed at least 83 Syrian troops and wounded 120 others. The US Central Command claimed they thought the base belonged to ISIS.

It does now. With the forces decimated by the US attack, ISIS quickly overran the base. Syrian state media claimed an ongoing effort to recover the site, but it does not appear to have been successful yet, as ISIS managed to shoot down a Syrian warplane, flying out of Deir Ezzor Airport, over Jebel Tharda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though this is just the outcome the US and Israel wanted to see happen here.

Payback? Syrian Armed Forces Reportedly Shoot Down US Spy Drone Over Deir ez-Zor

A US Air Force surveillance aircraft was reportedly downed on Sunday in the province of Deir ez-Zor, where American jets bombed Syrian forces encircled by Daesh militants a day earlier, killing 62 personnel.

According to Press TV, the Syrian Army brought down a UAV that was spotted hovering over mountains in the Jabal Therdeh area in the east of the province. AMN new agency, presenting itself a source of news from the Arabian world, specified that shots were fired by the Syrian Arab Army's 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Tank Division, though noting that drone managed to leave the Syrian airspace.

Massive prison strike takes place in memory of Attica riot, with 20,000 inmates across 24 states pledging to 'end slave labor for prisoners'

America is currently undergoing the biggest prison strike in history, with prisoners in 40-50 prisons across 25 states participating in the organized action, it has been reported.

Using secret cell phones, social media and people on the outside, 'at least' 20,000 prisoners have downed tools in protest against free prison labor, The Intercept said.

'This is a call to action against slavery in America,' organizers on the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) said in a statement. 'Forty-five years after Attica, the waves of change are returning to America’s prisons.'

'This September we hope to coordinate and generalize these protests,' the statement continued, 'to build them into a single tidal shift that the American prison system cannot ignore or withstand.'

The strike began on September 9, the 45th anniversary of the Attica prison riot, in which prisoners demanded political rights and better living conditions.That riot saw 43 dead, 33 of whom were inmates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in atlantablackstar.com in October 2014:

Prison labor in the United States is referred to as insourcing. Under the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), employers receive a tax credit of $2,400 for every work-release inmate they employ as a reward for hiring “risky target groups.” The workers are not only cheap labor, but they are considered easier to control. They also tend to be African-American males. Companies are free to avoid providing benefits like health insurance or sick days. They also don’t need to worry about unions, demands for vacation time, raises or family issues. According to the Left Business Observer, “the federal prison industry produces 100 percent of all military helmets, war supplies and other equipment. The workers supply 98 percent of the entire market for equipment assembly services; 93 percent of paints and paintbrushes; 92 percent of stove assembly; 46 percent of body armor; 36 percent of home appliances; 30 percent of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21 percent of office furniture. Airplane parts, medical supplies and much more: prisoners are even raising seeing-eye dogs for blind people.” With all of that productivity, the inmates make about 90 cents to $4 a day. Here are some of the biggest corporations to use such practices, but there are hundreds more:

So, Let's "name and shame", shall we?!? Again, from atlantablackstar.com, These companies benefiting from prison slave labor include, but are not limited to:

1. Whole Foods
2. Mc Donald's
3. Wendy's
4. Wal-Mart
5. Starbuck's
6. Victoria's Secret
7. Fidelity Investments
8. JC Penney
9. Kmart
9. American Airlines
10.Avis

This is a nasty practice, and should be halted immediately. And of course, it is getting nearly any coverage in the United States, because most people don't really want to know where the things they buy come from, particularly if it is made or produced by prison labor.

Obama says a low turnout from black voters in upcoming presidential election would be 'a personal insult' to his legacy

President Barack Obama said Saturday night he will take it as a 'personal insult' if the African-American community fails to turn out for the presidential election and encouraged black voters to support Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Obama delivered his final keynote address to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, symbolically passing the torch to the person he hopes will succeed him next year.

Clinton, his former secretary of state, was honored for becoming the first female presidential nominee of a major party.

Obama said his name may not be on the ballot, but issues of importance to the black community were, including justice, good schools and ending mass incarceration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are moments when I have to conclude that President Obama lives in a parallel reality from that with which so many African-Americans have to contend, 24/7.

As reported at nationalreview.com in March of this year:

With President Obama’s gas tank now less than an eighth full, it’s amazing where he has taken black Americans. Mainly, it’s been a long ride in reverse. Even liberal black broadcaster Tavis Smiley has criticized Obama for this. As Smiley told HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski, “Sadly — and it pains me to say this — over the last decade, black folk, in the era of Obama, have lost ground in every major economic category.” Smiley is almost completely correct. Based on the Obama administration’s own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics — with one key exception — black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009. During Obama’s tenure, the percentage of black Americans struggling below the poverty line has advanced, according to the most recent Census Bureau data, from 25.8 in 2009 to 26.2 in 2014 — up 1.6 percent. Real median income among black households during those years, according to the Census Bureau, sank from $35,954 to $35,398 — down 1.5 percent. RELATED: Obama’s Legacy Is Already Collapsing The number of black food-stamp participants exploded across that time frame from 7,393,000 to 11,699,000, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports — up 58.2 percent. Also, from Obama’s oath of office through the fourth quarter of 2015, the percentage of black Americans who own homes foundered from 46.1 percent to 41.9 percent, according to the Census — down 9.1 percent.

And those issues of "...justice, good schools and ending mass incarceration."?!?

In the words of Tony Soprano, for African Americans, "Fuggetaboutit!!", at least under President Obama's watch. Justice for African Americans, unless one has the (past) wealth of an OJ Simpson simply does not exist ; inner city schools resemble minimum security prisons, complete with guards; and the prisons themselves are overloaded to the max.

U.S., ISRAEL LAUNCH AIRSTRIKES ON SYRIAN GOVERNMENT FORCES - DIRECTLY SUPPORTING ISIS AND AL-QAEDA

Earlier today the Syrian Arab Army had announced that 1,000 fresh soldiers arrived in Deir Ezzor to liberate it from ISIS.

The U.S. planes came from Erbil in the Kurdish separatist region of Iraq.

The Syrian troops were holding positions on Jabal Tharda, a mountain that overlooks Deir Ezzor's airport. The mountain is now fully under Islamic State control. With this IS has firecontrol over the airport and the Deir Ezzor garrison as well as more than 150,000 civilians living under government protection are thereby cut off from supplies and any further reinforcements. Government forces have launched a counterattack to regain the vital position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get my head around the reality that the US is working with Israeli in supporting Isis and Al Qaeda in Syria: any questions?!?!?

And that performance by U.S. Ambassador Power at the UN on Saturday at the emergency meeting called by Russia over the incident was extraordinarily cringeworthy, to say the least, and engineered to try to get a rise out of the Russian Ambassador, Churkin; the only thing that happened was, at one point, he walked out of the room.

And if Power was going to elaborate on atrocities, how about the atrocities committed by the US/Israeli enabled and funded Isis and Al Qaeda?!?

Wanted New York and New Jersey bomb suspect sued his local police claiming they PERSECUTED him for being a Muslim

The prime suspect in the New York and New Jersey bombings sued his local police force and claimed they were persecuting him for being a Muslim.

Ahmad Rahami said in a lawsuit that cops in Elizabeth, New Jersey subjected his and his family to discrimination and 'selective enforcement' based on their religion.

The family claimed that police tried to shut down their chicken restaurant, called First American, too early each night with 'baseless' tickets and summonses.

HOW BIG PHARMA’S INDUSTRIAL WASTE IS FUELING THE RISE IN SUPERBUGS WORLDWIDE

Pharmaceutical companies are fuelling the rise of superbugs by manufacturing drugs in factories that leak industrial waste, says a new report which calls on them to radically improve their supply chains.

Factories in China and India – where the majority of the world’s antibiotics are produced – are releasing untreated waste fluid containing active ingredients into surrounding areas, highlights the report by a coalition of environmental and public health organisations.

Ingredients used in antibiotics get into the local soil and water systems, leading to bacteria in the environment becoming resistant to the drugs. They are able to exchange genetic material with other nearby germs, spreading antibiotic resistance around the world, the report claims.

WELLS FARGO SUED BY CUSTOMERS ACCUSING IT OF "FRAUD AND RECKLESS BEHAVIOR"

The bad news for Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf keep getting worse. As we reported last week, Stumpf is expected to testify before Congress this week in response to allegations that the bank allegedly opened over two million phony accounts without customers’ approval. The Senate Banking Committee has summoned John Stumpf, chief executive of Wells Fargo & Co., to testify about the bank’s alleged sales-practices misdeeds after it agreed last week to pay a $185 million fine and enter into an enforcement action with regulators. Mr. Stumpf told The Wall Street Journal in an interview Tuesday that he is prepared to “share Wells Fargo’s story” at the hearing.
His testimony will be the first from a big-bank chief under fire since 2012. Back then, the committee brought in J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. chief James Dimon to explain his bank’s “London whale” trading losses, in which the company lost more than $6 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GOOD! Banks engaging in this kind of fraudulent behaviour should be sued out of existence!

6 STATES FACING POSSIBLE GAS SHORTAGES AFTER COLONIAL PIPELINE SPILL

The number of eggs in one basket with this thing is insane.

Via: ABC:

Six states — Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and North Carolina — are facing possible gas shortages after a pipeline spill, officials said.

The states have all declared states of emergency, citing concerns about “fuel supply disruptions” and “disruptions of gasoline” in the wake of the Colonial Pipeline spill.

The governor of North Carolina declared the state of emergency to “help ensure that there will be adequate supplies of fuel across the state and prevent excessive fuel pricing.”

Prices on futures contracts for wholesale gasoline rose about 2 percent Friday to $1.46 a gallon after rising 5 percent on Thursday.

Long lines have quickly amassed at gas stations in the six states, and social media users took to their accounts to document the chaos and dwindling gasoline supply, in some cases. Below, images from Tennessee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at wikipedia.org:

Spill history[edit] Early on September 2, 1970, residents of Jacksonville, Maryland, detected gasoline odors and noticed gasoline in a small creek flowing beneath a nearby road. Because fumes were still present in the late afternoon of September 2, a resident notified Colonial at 6:19 p.m. about the situation. Colonial, which had a 30-inch-diameter pipeline situated about 1,700 feet east of the point where the creek passed under the road, shut down the Dorsey Junction, Maryland, pump station (the initial pump station for this section of the pipeline) at 6:34 p.m. About 12 hours later, on the morning of September 3, an explosion and fire occurred in a ditch in which contractor personnel for Colonial were manually digging to further expose the pipeline and catch gasoline trickling from the ground. Five persons were injured, none fatally. The leak point was found four days later. The failure resulted in a release of 30,186 gallons (718 barrels) of gasoline and kerosene.[9] At 9:51 p.m. on December 19, 1991, Colonial's Line 2, a 36-inch-diameter petroleum products pipeline, ruptured about 2.8 miles downstream of the company's Simpsonville, South Carolina, pump station. The rupture allowed more than 500,000 gallons (13,100 barrels) of Diesel fuel to flow into Durbin Creek, causing environmental damage that affected 26 miles of waterways, including the Enoree River, which flows through Sumter National Forest. The spill also forced Clinton and Whitmire, South Carolina, to use alternative water supplies.[10] On Sunday, March 28, 1993 at 8:48 a.m., a pressurized 36-inch-diameter (910 mm) petroleum product pipeline owned and operated by Colonial Pipeline Company ruptured near Herndon, Virginia. The rupture created a geyser that sprayed Diesel fuel over 75 feet (23 m) into the air, coating overhead power lines and adjacent trees, and misting adjacent Virginia Electric & Power Company buildings. The Diesel fuel spewed from the rupture into an adjacent storm water management pond and flowed overland and through a network of storm sewer pipes before reaching Sugarland Run Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River. In October 1994, after heavy rainfall in the Houston area, failures of eight pipelines occurred with damage to 29 others. Two of the failures included Colonial Pipeline lines. The failures occurred at a crossing of the San Jacinto river. The river, which normally flows at 2.5 feet above sea level, crested at 28 feet above sea level on October 21. The river caused major soil erosion. Colonial's 40-inch gasoline pipeline failed on October 20 at 8:31 a.m. and by 9:51 a.m. explosions and fires erupted on the river. Colonial's 36-inch (Diesel) pipeline ruptured about 2 p.m. on the same day, although it had previously been temporarily out of service and that limited the amount of the spill.[11] In 1996, a 36-inch diameter Colonial pipeline ruptured at the Reedy River, near Fork Shoals, South Carolina, June 26. The ruptured pipeline released about 957,600 US gallons (3,625,000 L) of fuel oil into the Reedy River and surrounding areas. The spill polluted a 34-mile (55 km) stretch of the Reedy River, causing significant environmental damage. Floating oil extended about 23 miles (37 km) down the river. Approximately 35,000 fish were killed, along with other aquatic organisms and wildlife. The estimated cost to Colonial Pipeline for cleanup and settlement with the State of South Carolina was $20.5 million. No one was injured in the accident. The pipeline was operating at reduced pressure due to known corrosion issues, but pipeline operator confusion led to an accidental return to normal pressure in that pipeline section, causing the rupture.[12][13][14] In 1997 On May 30, Colonial Pipeline spilled approximately 18,900 US gallons (72,000 L) of gasoline, some of which entered an unnamed creek and its adjoining shoreline in the Bear Creek watershed near Athens, Georgia. During the spill, a vapor cloud of gasoline formed, causing several Colonial employees to flee for safety. This spill resulted from a calculation error related to a regular procedure. No one checked the calculations, nor did Colonial have a procedure in place to check such calculations.[12] Due to seven different spills on Colonial Pipeline in four years, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fined Colonial $34 million on April 1, 2003.[15] On Wednesday, October 3, 2012, Colonial Pipeline shut down line 19 and 20 in Chattanooga, Tennessee due to reports of gasoline odors. It was reported that about 500 gallons of gasoline may have been released.[16] The line carrying gasoline was repaired and the distillate line, which carries Diesel fuel, jet fuel and other products, was inspected and found to be undamaged. Both lines were restarted two days later on October 5, 2012.[17] On Friday, September 9, 2016, a leak was detected in Shelby County, Alabama, spilling an estimated 336,000 US gallons (160,000 L) of summer-grade gasoline, requiring a partial shutdown of the pipeline and threatening fuel shortages in the southeastern United States.[18][19]

Nationwide Prison Strike Mostly Ignored by National Media

On September 9, the 45th anniversary of the Attica prison uprising, inmate laborers at 40 prisons in 24 states across the country went on strike (The Root, 9/10/16). The Nation (9/7/16), Guardian (9/9/16), Wired (9/3/16) and Waging Nonviolence (9/7/16) all reported that this may have been the largest prison strike in history.

But a search of the Nexis news database for the terms “prison” and “strike” showed that most national corporate news outlets thought that the potential of history being made on September 9 needed little to no news coverage. CBS Money Watch (9/9/16) actually had a substantive report by Aimee Picchi, who noted that, “Aside from the low or nonexistent pay, the strikers say they object to the use of violence or punishments if they don’t perform as well as their jailers expect.”

The attack took place as a battle between the Syrian military and ISIS forces was raging in Deir al-Zour when the United States swooped in with air strikes against Syrian military forces killing “dozens” of Syrian soldiers, allowing ISIS to advance. Some outlets put the death toll as high as 80 while others suggest 62 soldiers were killed...

US & US-controlled forces haven't fulfilled any Syria ceasefire deal obligations - Russian Army

The US is still reluctant to take measures to force rebels under its control to implement the Syrian ceasefire, Russia’s Defense Ministry said, adding that if things do not change, Washington will be the sole side responsible for the failure of the truce.

After five days of the ceasefire, it has to be noted that only the Russian and Syrian sides have been fully implementing their commitments. On its own initiative, Russia prolonged the cessation of hostilities for 48 hours, and yesterday it was extended for another 72 hours,” senior Russian General Staff official, Viktor Poznikhir, said at a briefing in Moscow.

But, according to Poznikhir, it is very different on the American side as “the US and the so-called moderate groups under their control didn’t fulfill a single commitment undertaken in the framework of the Geneva arrangements.”

Alabama, Tennessee, & Georgia Declare States Of Emergency As Gas Shortages Loom After Pipeline Leak

As Native Americans protesters face arrest in North Dakota for blocking the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, TheAntiMedia's Carey Wedler reports a gasoline pipeline spill is currently unfolding in the South. The leak has prompted Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal to declare states of emergency.

The Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Houston to New York, began leaking on September 9, spilling 250,000 gallons of gasoline, or 6,000 barrels. The pipeline was built in 1962, and the current leak in Helena, Alabama, is the largest one Colonial Pipeline has experienced in 20 years, Reuters noted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Also, as reported this morning at activistpost.com:

This whole situation keeps getting worse and worse. It seems to be growing by the day. When Colonial Pipeline originally announced the leak, it was reported that a mere 1,000 barrels of gas had leaked, or said another way, approximately 45,000 gallons. It was then increased to 250,000 gallons – more than a 5-fold increase. Now it has reached more than an 8-fold increase from the original estimate. Do they actually know how much damage has been done and do they know how much gas has leaked out? The Sept. 9 break has leaked 6,000 barrels (approximately 250,000 gallons) of fuel into Shelby County, Alabama, the operator estimated, up from its original estimation of 1,000 barrels. The cause of the leak is currently unclear. Source The more I dig into this gas pipeline leak situation the worse it gets. As we reported yesterday the Colonial Pipeline that pumps gasoline from Houston, Tx to southern New York state became damaged on Friday September 9, 2016. Major news sources didn’t begin reporting this incident until Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and national news services first reported on it beginning Friday September 16, 2016 a full week later. Somewhere between regional news and national news coverage of a 250,000 gallon leak in south central Alabama the governors of Alabama and Georgia announce there is a state of emergency. The leak is outside Birmingham, AL and the gas would have some area to cover to reach Georgia. So far this whole situation is beginning to smell funny and it’s not just the gas fumes.

To our readers and listeners in the affected areas; please make sure that your car and truck tanks get filled soon, because there is a distinct possibility that your local gas stations may well be out of gas before you get there.

Also, make sure you have potable water; storable food; extra medications; and off-grid power available, if possible. The fix for this leak may turn out to be a really time-intensive mess.

Gov. Kasich Visits Obama at White House for TPP Push Meeting

He lost badly in the Republican presidential primary election to now-nominee Donald Trump, refused to attend the Republican National convention in the state where he is governor, and now John Kasich is visiting President Barack Obama in the White House to help Obama pass the highly controversial trade agreement, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
“We now have a unique opportunity, again to put country in front of politics,” Kasich said during a White House press briefing along with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed who also attended the meeting. “The two nations that most vociferously oppose this agreement are China…” he continued, also mentioning Vladimir Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to John Kasich: no sir, this treaty does NOT put country in front of politics; it puts corporations WAY in front of the citizens of this country!

As reported at huffingtonpost.com in May 2016:

So the fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected. This is bizarre stuff, folks, but welcome to the world of international trade deals. From Ryan Grim’s article the day Fast Track was passed, about the amendment in question: That measure would bar governments considered to be complicit in human trafficking from receiving the economic benefits of a fast-tracked trade deal. Menendez, the author of the provision, has described it as a human rights protection that will prevent U.S. workers from competing with modern-day slave labor. The administration has pushed against the provision, saying it would prevent Malaysia from participating in the deal, and eliminate incentives for the country to upgrade its human trafficking enforcement. Human rights advocates strongly support the language that passed the Senate on Friday. The president argues that if the U.S. doesn’t cut deals with these partner countries, China will, to U.S. disadvantage. The State Department’s human trafficking analysis of Malaysia describes the country as “a destination and, to a lesser extent, a source and transit country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and women and children subjected to sex trafficking.” The department cites forced labor problems in Malaysia’s palm oil industry, and nonprofit groups have noted similar abuses in the Malaysian electronics industry. The State Department report says Malaysian ‘public officials... may profit from trafficking.’ The President does not want an anti-slavery provision in what he calls the “most progressive trade deal of all time” because it would keep a country noted for its egregious slave trade out of the treaty? I have to admit this bothers me just a little. Okay, a massive amount. We’re not going to object to slavery because a country that openly engages in it might trade more with China than with us? Doesn’t this kind of blow up the whole “most progressive trade agreement in history” thing?

In fact, will the approval of such a treaty by Congress indicate that it, too ,is just FINE with child and slave labor in this country, in order to compete with corporations in countries already doing this to lower their bottom line?!?

Is the approval of this treaty setting the stage, and creating the legal precedent, for the return of child and slave labor in this country?!?

Congressional approval of this treaty may well be opening a door to a very sordid place from American history I think very few Americans would want to, willingly, revisit.

Congressional representatives, you have been duly warned; if you want to keep your seats in Congress, do not ratify this treaty, period, end of discussion!!

Western Media Credibility In Free Fall Collapse

The latest from the Gallup Poll is that only 32% of Americans trust the print and TV media to tell the truth.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/195542/americans-trust-mass-media-sinks-new...

Republicans, 18 to 49 year old Americans, and independents trust the media even less, with trust rates of 14%, 26%, and 30%.

The only group that can produce a majority that still trusts the media are Democrats with a 51% trust rate in print and TV reporting. The next highest trust rate is Americans over 50 years of age with a trust rate of 38 percent.

It is not difficult to see why trust in the media has collapsed. The corrupt Clinton regime, which we might be on the verge of repeating, allowed a somewhat diverse and independent media to be 90% acquired by six mega-corporations. The result was the disappearance of independence in reporting and opinion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would very emphatically challenge Dr. Roberts on that last bit; this is why people, hungry for the truth, are flocking to independent media sites like WRH!! :-)

Ravaged by conflict, Yemen's coast faces rising malnutrition

Sitting by her son's hospital bed, Houdaid Masbah looks at her 5-year-old boy's skeletal body and sunken cheeks, helplessness engulfing her like a thick cloud — a desperation she shares with many other mothers in Hodeidah.

Even before the war, Hodeidah was one of the poorest cities in Yemen, the Arab world's most impoverished nation. Now, the destruction of the port city's fishing boats and infrastructure by the Saudi-led coalition's airstrikes over the past 18 months of war has deprived the townspeople of their prime livelihood.

The U.N. estimates that about 100,000 children under the age of five in the city and the surrounding province, also called Hodeidah, are at risk of severe malnutrition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Chronic malnutrition, after a point, leaves a child mentally crushed for life, and physically disabled; there is only some level of restoration possible to physical and mental capabilities, but the kid may never be "normal".

Take a good, hard look at this haunted, hungry face; then imagine, for one second, that this was your kid, and you are powerless to help them.

US government is facilitating this massive epidemic of malnutrition in Yemen, by being a partner in war crimes to the Saudi government

DNI DECLINES REQUIRED DAMAGE ASSESSMENT OF CLINTON’S LEAKED EMAIL SECRETS

The U.S. intelligence community declined to conduct a required assessment of the damage to national security caused by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton sending and receiving secrets on a private email server.

“ODNI is not leading an [intelligence community]-wide damage assessment and is not aware of any individual IC element conducting such formal assessments,” Joel D. Melstad, a spokesman for the of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said.

The most sensitive classified information leaked and possibly obtained by foreign intelligence services included ultra-secret information on U.S. drone strikes, according to American intelligence officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple here; neither Clapper nor Melstad want to wind up "depressed" in Fort Marcy Park!!

Clinton Foundation CEO Admits To Pay-For-Play: "No Question" That "Courtesy Appointments" Were Made

Yesterday, the CEO of the Clinton Foundation, Donna Shalala, went on MSNBC and openly admitted to engaging in "pay-for-play" activities saying there is "no question" that Foundation donors received "courtesy appointments" during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State. Somehow, Shalala would like for us to believe that so long as appointees weren't put in a position to impact policy decisions then there is no real issue. I guess we should just ignore that taxpayers are funding the salaries of those appointees and paying for their government-related travel all over the world while Hillary gets to accrue "political capital" and her Foundation gets to continue raking in the donations?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Donna Shalala: under Clinton's watch, the US government became a government for sale, and to the highest bidder, under the Clintons' "pay to play" scheme.

And any government's money was just fine, no matter what they did to the citizens of their own country,even countries which included:

chemically castrating, jailing, and executing their LGBTQ communities

and:

permitting the brutal, barbaric practice of female genital mutilation

Sorry, Ms. Shalala: these are the facts.

Are you going to tell me that Hillary Clinton "didn't know" these practices were going on in many of the Middle Eastern and Northern African from which the Clinton Foundation gladly accepted donations?!?

Or would you give me the most likely, honest answer, that being she did know, but didn't give a damn.

Oh...silence at this question, right?!?

State Department and Establishment Media Silent on Israel’s 200 Nukes

Not only has the State Department ignored Colin Powell’s revelation Israel has two hundred nukes, so has the establishment media. After DCLeak posted a tranche of Powell emails hacked from the former secretary of state’s personal Gmail account, RT’s Caleb Maupin asked the State Department for comment on Powell's mention of Israel’s nukes. He was ignored. Meanwhile, the story has been virtually ignored by the media. The Sun in Britain reported on it, as did The Times of Israel and Haaretz in Israel, but The New York Times and The Washington Post have remained silent.

We aren’t ‘little brown brothers of America,’ don’t lecture us – Philippines FM

The Philippines foreign minister has warned that his country will not be treated like a “little brown brother” to the US, and will not be lectured on human rights. It follows inflammatory statements made by the nation’s president about US President Barack Obama.

Hillary Clinton 'Systematically Overcharging' Her Poorest Donors to Fund Her Campaign

Even for Hillary Clinton, this is a new low.

Hillary for America processed a total of $94 in unauthorized charges to Carol Mahre's US Bank account. This follows a pattern in which unwitting donors are charged multiple times, but always for a total of less than $100, which is a key trigger point for banks' internal action systems.

Hillary Clinton's campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what's supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.

COLIN POWELL LEAKED EMAILS REVEAL ISRAEL HAS “200 NUCLEAR BOMBS”

According to Judah Ari Gross of The Times of Israel, “Discussing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 2015 speech to Congress about the dangers posed by the Iranian nuclear deal, in an email he sent to US Democratic party donor Jeffrey Leeds, Powell wrote that he doubted the Iranian regime would use an atomic bomb even if it could get one, since “the boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands.” The email was published by theLobeLog foreign policy website.

Israel maintains a policy of so-called nuclear ambiguity, they will not publicly confirm or deny the existence of an atomic arsenal.
