‘Systemic Failure’ Led To Prison Break, New York Inspector General Finds

Don’t give the two inmates who escaped a maximum security prison in upstate New York last year too much credit. “Chronic complacency and systemic failures” within the facility were what led to the three-week manhunt, a state report found.

“[T]he FBI is not required to identify a particular federal statute that it alleges has been violated in connection with the pending investigation, or the target(s) of the investigation,” in order to keep the information secret, it asserted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, they did find something that has to be kept secret!

Police: Missing NASA scientist found dead

Authorities say a NASA research scientist who worked at the Wallops Flight Facility has been found dead a day after her family reported her missing.

Police said the body of 48-year-old Tiffany Moisan of Princess Anne was found Sunday in a wooded area behind a Food Lion store. Moisan's family reported her missing Saturday to Maryland State Police.

Princess Anne Police Chief Tim Bozman says Moisan's vehicle was found in the store's parking lot. Her body was sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore. Police say there were no apparent signs of foul play, but the investigation will stay open until autopsy results are in.

‘Systemic failure’ led to prison break, New York Inspector General finds

Don’t give the two inmates who escaped a maximum security prison in upstate New York last year too much credit. “Chronic complacency and systemic failures” within the facility were what led to the three-week manhunt, a state report found.

The state’s Inspector General found during its investigation that the two inmates, convicted murderers Richard W. Matt and David Sweat, coaxed a female employee and a male prison guard into providing them with tools for their escape.

Apparently He Left “War Criminal” Off His Resumé

I’m just saying that one who looked into his background to any extent might see a few red flags.

“No Fly Zone” initiated where the ‘Arizona Asteroid’ exploded

A “No Fly Zone” has been initiated for the exact area that the asteroid exploded. Also, only vehicle travel through this area is by escort, 4 hours per day 12-4pm. There has been a small contained wildfire burn in that area for a couple of weeks now that is well under control, however, the “No Fly Zone” was just issued after the asteroid event.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every once in a while, something that gets put into space falls back down. Some UFO reports were actually witnesses to returning film canisters from the early CIA spy satellites.

I remember when I was a kid in New Hampshire something fell out of the sky and landed on a nearby lake in winter, hot enough to melt through the ice and leave a rectangular hole that clearly represented an artificial object. The military swooped in and kicked all the sigh-seers out and cordoned off the area so that nobody could see what they fished out of the water.

The video does look like a meteor fall to me, but who knows these days?

Canada's lone working submarine has stopped working again. (They bought their subs used from the Brits)

During a recent sail on board HMCS Windsor, the Star had a chance to see firsthand the complexities of running the diesel-electric subs.

News of the sub’s aborted Atlantic crossing comes as the federal government has dramatically boosted maintenance budget to keep the four submarines operational until 2023.

Higher than expected repair bills have forced Ottawa to add $900 million to the budget, bringing the total service contract to $2.6 billion until 2023.

Yet this latest problem means that none of Canada’s four submarines are mission-ready. HMCS Corner Brook is undergoing heavy maintenance, which is expected to take until 2018. Faulty welds will keep HMCS Chicoutimi and Victoria, both based in Esquimalt, B.C., out of operation for the foreseeable future.

"I don't believe in this Jewish conspiracy because nobody presents any real credible hard-core evidence that it's taking place. it's an obsession."

This is an update to our post yesterday. Thanks to the reader who posted the full clip. Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson opines: "People who are obsessed with Jews controlling the world never seem to present any evidence. I mean, I read the news everyday, I track narratives that the main stream media comes out with. I don't see a big Jewish influence. I mean, Jewish people are not really that present. I don't really notice them anywhere. I don't believe in this Jewish conspiracy because nobody presents any real credible hard-core evidence that it's taking place. So I mean- it is an obsession. I mean that's why people avoid it, let's be honest, because it's an obsession you don't want to be associated with; neo-Nazis and white supremacists. And even just- you know, if I saw actual evidence where it was a grand conspiracy then I would talk about it, but I just don't see it!"

Anthony Weiner- Assorted Wieners - Movie Review

Exclusive: Burt Prelutsky found film about politician 'fascinating, funny and even a little sad'

I couldn’t wait to see the documentary “Weiner,” which in about an hour and a half documented the remarkable fall, rise and fall of the former New York congressman and aspiring mayor of NYC.

Being a political junkie, I found the movie fascinating, funny and even a little sad. It was funny because here was a guy who, as a liberal Jew, could have spent 40 more years in Congress, rising, as every aging left-wing hack does, to the inevitable rank of statesman, if only he wasn’t fixated on texting pictures of what, in romance fiction, is often described as one’s throbbing manhood, to various women he had never even met.

Hillary Clinton: Electing a Foreign Spy for President?

As Sherlock Holmes would say, “We are entering in deep waters, Watson”.

The executive leadership now faces the problem of how to deal with a traitor, who may be the Democratic Party nominee for US President. How do the executive leadership and intelligence agencies back a foreign spy for president, who has been deeply compromised and can be blackmailed? This may explain why the FBI, NSA, and CIA hesitate to press charges; hesitate to even seriously investigate, despite the obvious nature of her offenses. Most of all it explains why there is no indication of the identity of Secretary Clinton’s correspondents in the various reports so far available.

'Minivan-sized' sea creature discovered off Hawaii

Two Hawaii scientists believe they've come across one of them, and it's a jaw-dropping wonder.
A "minivan-sized" sea sponge was discovered deep in the ocean near Hawaii, according to findings published this week in the scientific journal Marine Biodiversity.
Scientists aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer spotted the massive sea creature at a depth of 7,000 feet within the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, a protected U.S. National Monument spanning 140,000 square miles of ocean, during a month-long expedition from July to August of 2015.

So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

Why Did Police Stand Down and Allow Trump Supporters To Be Attacked, Beaten, and Bloodied by a Violent Mob?

Would it surprise you to hear that police did nothing when people leaving a Donald Trump rally, innocent American citizens, walked out into an ambush of anti-Trump protesters throwing eggs (assault), pushing them (assault), punching them (assault), spitting on them (assault), throwing bottles at them (assault), beating them (assault), and jumping on and kicking their cars and smashing out taillights (destruction of private property) as they tried to leave?

Because that is exactly what happened at Donald Trump’s rally in San Jose, California last Thursday night as the cops stood idly by in their riot gear and watched, doing NOTHING.

See for yourself.

Do you think San Jose police would have stood down and watched if this had been happening against supporters of Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders?

Of course not. It would have been labeled a “hate crime” and splashed all over the news, every single act of violence hyped to the hilt.

'F*** you, Oprah!' John Oliver buys $15million of medical debt belonging to 9,000 Americans and forgives it all in 'the biggest TV giveaway of all time'

Comedian John Oliver performed an incredible act of generosity on Sunday when his topical comedy show, HBO's 'Last Week Tonight,' bought and forgave $15million of medical debt belonging to 9,000 Americans.

The dramatic moment was the climax to a 20-minute segment on America's growing industry of debt buyers, who buy 'delinquent debt' for pennies on the dollar then threaten debtors to get the cash.

Oliver, who bought the $14,922,261.76 debt for $60,000, said: 'On one hand, it’s obviously the right thing to do, but much more importantly [we got to stage] the largest one-time giveaway in television show history,' Fox News reported.

Did Clinton’s Emails Expose CIA Agents?

Even as Hillary Clinton closes in on the Democratic nomination, facts continue to emerge indicating that her sloppy email practices may have endangered secrets, including the identities of covert operatives, writes Peter Van Buren.

These are facts. You can look at the source documents yourself. This is not opinion, conjecture, or rumor. Hillary Clinton transmitted the names of American intelligence officials via her unclassified email.

From a series of Clinton emails, numerous names were redacted in the State Department releases with the classification code “B3 CIA PERS/ORG,” a highly specialized classification that means the information, if released, would violate the Central Intelligence Act of 1949 by exposing the names of CIA officials.

Electing a Foreign Spy for President?

As Sherlock Holmes would say, “We are entering in deep waters, Watson”.

There are several lines of inquiry against Mme. Clinton:

(1) Did she work with, as yet unnamed, foreign governments and intelligence services to strengthen their positions and against the interest of the United States?

(2) Did she provide information on the operations and policy positions of various key US policymakers to competitors, adversaries or allies undermining the activities of military, intelligence and State Department officials?

(3) Did she seek to enhance her personal power within the US administration to push her aggressive policy of serial pre-emptive wars over and against veteran State Department and Pentagon officials who favored traditional diplomacy and less violent confrontation?

(4) Did she prepare a ‘covert team’, using foreign or dual national operative, to lay the groundwork for her bid for the presidency and her ultimate goal of supreme military and political power?

Each redaction must be justified by citing a specific reason for exclusion.

My underwear was taken out of my checked luggage

I have just arrived in Madison after taking a red-eye here involving stopping in Detroit and Cincinnati. The flight out of Portland was overbooked and they had to check some carry-on bags through to the final destination. Mine was one of them.

Tired and grungy, I took a shower when I got here and discovered that my underwear has been removed from my bag.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is very creepy and from the sheer number of articles I found when I googled this, it is an epidemic problem!

The reason I went searching for this subject is that Claire and I spent the weekend with a friend over in Kauai. To be fair, the TSA experience at the security gates was not the nightmares we are reading about on the mainland.

But ...

We know TSA went through our luggage because they broke the TSA approved lock and (apparently after making sure it wasn't carrying drugs or something) incorrectly reassembled my flashlight. And Claire's underwear was missing!

Now Claire and I are getting o-l-d-e-r and we have our share of senior moments. So, I assumed that Claire had simply forgotten to pack them. After all, were someone going to loot the luggage there were a lot more interesting (to me) items such as my Swiss Army knife and some accessories for cameras and cell phones that we didn't want to put in the carry-on.

The missing underwear was a headache, because where we were staying was quite a long distance away from where we could buy her some new panties, but we made do.

We returned last night and a quick search of our home proved that the missing underwear was indeed missing. As Sherlock Holmes is claimed to have said, when you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however unlikely, must be the truth. So, I typed "TSA stealing panties" into Google, and discovered that this sort of creepy sick-o behavior is actually quite common in the Tourism Suppression Agency!

I have apologized to my wife for having doubted her!

More than 100,000 People Can’t Drink the Contaminated Tap Water in Alabama…Until September!

It really seems as though issues with municipal water supplies are occurring more frequently. More than 100,000 residents have been told that they can’t drink or cook with the contaminated tap water in Alabama by the West Morgan-East Lawrence Water Authority…but this isn’t just a week-long clean-up. The restriction is expected to last until September.

The issue is synthetic chemicals that have the potential to cause cancer, birth defects, and developmental delays in children. Traces of PFOS (Perfluorooctane sulfonate) and PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) were found in the blood of nearly every single person tested, according to the EPA.

Hillary Clinton Faces Test of Record as Women’s Advocate

As Mrs. Clinton commemorates her 1995 women’s rights speech in Beijing in back-to-back events in New York, she finds herself under attack for her family foundation’s acceptance of millions of dollars in donations from Middle Eastern countries known for violence against women and for denying them many basic freedoms.

Even her most strident critics could not have predicted that Mrs. Clinton would prove vulnerable on the subject.

But the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation has accepted tens of millions of dollars in donations from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Algeria and Brunei — all of which the State Department has faulted over their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what do every one of those countries from which the Clinton Foundation took money still allow and have in common in the 21st century?!?

Female genital mutilation.

Study

The only country not listed in the list above is Brunei; however, as reported by the Brunei Times on 12 June, 2012:

In Bruneian custom, female circumcision is performed on baby girls between 40 to 60 days, where small amount of skin tissue is removed from the genitalia.

Think about it for a moment, Clintonistas; could a woman with something approximating a conscience accept money from a country which allowed this barbaric practice to continue, even to the point of having a screaming baby girl held down, and having its genitals bloodily cut with unsterile "medical instruments", inviting infection and infant death?!?

I would like to hope you can answer this honestly.

But of course, for sociopathic money junkies like Hillary Clinton, none of this matters. It's all about the money, and ultimately, the potential of Presidential power, which she has seen first-hand during her husband's presidency, ,both of which are as thoroughly addictive as cocaine and heroin.

Put very simply, you cannot be "for women",either at home or abroad, if you accept money from countries for which horrendous injury, severe pain, and frequently death from this practice are completely acceptable as collateral damage, simply because these people are women.

And please remember; a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for more wars; more offshoring/outsourcing of your jobs; and "special favors" for those countries indicated above which contributed to the Clinton Foundation. After all, President Clinton's true legacy was as "Outsourcer-In-Chief"

Double Standards: Unrelenting Anti-Trump Media Campaign, Coverup of Hillary “Racketeering Charges”

She’s vulnerable to racketeering charges, the Clinton Foundation a covert criminal enterprise masquerading as a charitable NGO, selling influence for millions of dollars in contributions, the Clintons enriching themselves hugely while falsely claiming to do good.

The latest Times anti-Trump rant claims he “could threaten US rule of law,” citing “conservative and libertarian” sources agreeing with its point of view, ignoring fantasy US democracy, tyranny begun under Bill Clinton, hardened under Bush, institutionalized under Obama.

BRITAIN’S DENIAL OVER CLUSTER BOMBS IN YEMEN 'WILDLY IMPLAUSIBLE' – AMNESTY

Ministry of Defence (MoD) denials regarding banned, British-supplied cluster munitions found in Yemen are little more than a “smokescreen of wildly implausible claims,” according to Amnesty International.

The human rights charity wrote to the MoD after defence minister Philip Dunne told parliament a UK-made BL-755 bomb found in a village in Yemen had not been dropped by the Saudi coalition.

Responding to an urgent parliamentary question, both Dunne and Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond suggested the banned munition, which may have been bought as long ago as the 1970s, was dropped in an earlier conflict.

Dunne argued: “It is unclear from the evidence provided thus far that the munitions came from the current conflict.

“We assess that no UK-supplied cluster weapons have been used.”

Amnesty, which carried out inspections in the area and first exposed the presence of the cluster bombs, rejected the claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us make one thing very clear here; the British government doesn't give a rat's anus as to who gets killed by these munitions, including children, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

They are supplying these muntitions to the Saudi Arabian government to get rid of the Houthi rebels; and to put Saudi Arabia permanently and practically in control of Yemen; nothing else matters to them here, except for one little factoid I will mention later.

But I would like to politely suggest to both Philip Dunne and Philip Hammond that the Houthis, and Yemenite people, have been able to stave off any pretension of a Saudi military "victory" over one year since this civil war began.

That's why, last month, the US government admitted to the presence of US troops on the ground in Yemen. As reported on 6 May at www.washingtonpost.com:

The Pentagon has placed a small number of U.S. advisors on the ground in Yemen to support Arab forces battling al-Qaeda, military officials said on Friday, signaling a new American role in that country’s multi-sided civil war. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said U.S. personnel had been in the country for about two weeks, supporting Yemeni and Emirati forces that are fighting a pitched battle against militants near the southeastern port city of Mukalla. “We view this as short-term,” Davis told reporters. Officials said the U.S. military is also providing Emirati forces with medical, intelligence and maritime support, and is flying surveillance and aerial refueling missions. It has also staged a ships from the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit off Yemen’s coast. The flotilla includes the USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship with Marine infantry and aircraft, and two destroyers, the USS Gravely and the USS Gonzalez.

Additionally, the UAE has hired private mercs to fight in this war, in a desperate, last-gasp effort to make things go better here militarily.

And as stated so eloquently at guardianship in the article by Owen Jones in January of this year, the UK has been a part of the Saudi war effort against the rebels from the beginning.

Britain is arming and aiding a fundamentalist dictatorship that’s bombing and killing civilians. This is an incontestable fact. The Saudi tyranny – gay-hating women-oppressors who kicked off the year with ~a mass beheading – has been waging war in Yemen for 10 months. The world needs to know about Yemen’s war. But journalists are being silenced Charlene Rodrigues Read more If the 26 million Yemenis were being besieged and bombed by an official enemy of the west, we might expect emotive calls to “do something” and militarily intervene. Well, we are intervening: not simply by supplying weapons but even by providing the Saudi-led coalition of Arab dictators with British military advisers. As the SNP’s Angus Robertson put it to the prime minister’s face, Britain is “effectively at war” – and yet few Britons know anything about it. Since Saudi-led forces intervened in the conflict between President Hadi and Houthi rebels last March, around 6,000 Yemenis have been killed, perhaps half of them civilians. With the country under naval blockade, what the UN was already calling a “humanitarian catastrophe” six months ago has been unleashed. Eight in every 10 Yemenis are now dependent on humanitarian aid, and most do not have “adequate access to clean water or sanitation”, according to the UN.

So, what is really to be gained by giving Saudi Arabia military and political control over Yemen?!?

As reported at sputniknews.com on 6 April 2016:

Why does Saudi Arabia continue to bomb Yemen back into the Stone Age? The crux of the matter is that Yemen has oil reserves, while Riyadh is steadily running out of the commodity, American political analyst Phil Butler explains. A Saudi banker displays the new one hundred riyal banknote bearing the portrait of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud at a bank in Riyadh, 05 June 2007 © AFP 2016/ HASSAN AMMAR Out of Money: Saudi Arabia Shot Itself in the Foot by Dropping Oil Prices According to American political analyst and researcher Phil Butler, the US-backed Saudi Arabian war against Yemen is neither about the longstanding sectarian strife between Sunnis and Shiites, nor about the much-discussed military campaign aimed against al-Qaeda in the region. While Western media outlets usually refer to Yemen as a "small" energy producer, the truth of the matter is the country is sitting on substantial oil and gas reserves, which Saudi Arabia and its allies want to control, Butler notes. In addition, Yemen lies at the Bab el-Mandab, a key checkpoint for maritime transit of oil, with 3.4 million barrels of oil passing through it each day. In one of his previous analytical reports for New Eastern Outlook, Phil Butler called attention to the fact that Saudi Arabia's oil wealth is doomed to falter: "Given the nature of the country's [Saudi Arabia's] oil reserves, and almost unlimited production for decades, it's possible the Saudis could simply be running out of gas," the American analyst stressed. In this context, it is hardly surprising that Riyadh has recently adopted an assertive and even aggressive foreign policy approach towards its neighbors.

So there you have it, Brits; the reason your government is so gung-ho about destroying Yemen, and murdering thousands of Yemenite people, by whatever means necessary, is in order for the Saudi government to secure the Yemen oil fields, in order that the Saudis give the British government "due consideration" for both deals on developing Yemen's oil reserve, and "assisting" in "creating improvements" at Bab El Mandab.

It's just that simple.

And to the Cameron government: please just be honest with your people about why you did this, in the next electoral cycle. It was simply a matter of money for your corporate cronies, to insure that they would have more money with which to support your electoral campaigns, overtly and covertly, because of what you can promise, and deliver, for them.

Your countrymen and women will understand, particularly the pensioners dying as a direct result of your brilliant "austerity program".

State Department Blocks Release Of Hillary Clinton-Era TPP Emails Until After The Election

Trade is a hot issue in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. But correspondence from Hillary Clinton and her top State Department aides about a controversial 12-nation trade deal will not be available for public review — at least not until after the election. The Obama administration abruptly blocked the release of Clinton’s State Department correspondence about the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), after first saying it expected to produce the emails this spring.

I wake up each day in a house built by slaves: Michelle Obama

At a commencement address at City College of New York on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama once again brought race to the forefront, proclaiming that she wakes up every day in a house built by slaves.

Webmaster addition: I hate to get in the way of Michelle trying to turn whites and blacks against each other (in the hope the blacks will vote for Hillary) but with the exception of portions of the exterior stonework, the building built by slaves does not exist any more. It was rebuilt following the burning by the British. The West Wing was completed under Teddy Roosevelt, then rebuilt after a fire in 1929. When Truman was President, the White House was declared structurally unsound and the entire interior rebuilt.

It would have been more accurate for Michelle to say she wakes up every day in a house paid for by slaves, as in that 1040 form!

Windows 10 upgrade could cause Sudanese deaths

The Chinko Project manages rainforest and savannah in the east of the CAR, near the border with South Sudan. It has all sorts of problems to deal with including poachers and the Lord’s Resistance Army.

It is doing all this on a shoestring and with limited bandwidth so when the whole lot went down because a donated laptop started to upgrade to Windows 10 the Project went into a panic.

After all, if rangers were under fire from armed militarised poachers, blood could literally be on Microsoft’s hands.

Microsoft’s handling of the Windows 10 upgrade has raised a number of eyebrows for its heavy handedness and shear inconvenience. The last thing an outfit, which depends on expensive satellite communications for internet access, wants is a multi-gigabyte automatic upgrade gumming up the works.

Roger remains in police custody. His bail is set at $15,000.

Clinton was also arrested for DUI in 2001. That same year, President Clinton infamously pardoned his half-brother for a drug charge.

Everyone’s Paying For America’s War on Russia, Including America

US sanctions aren’t just hurting everyone including the US, they are accomplishing nothing. The US State Department’s Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) notified readers of a diplomacy campaign by the United States aimed at “urging” Europe to maintain sanctions against Russia. While the US claims the necessity of these sanctions are self-evident and beneficial to the US and Europe, such campaigns would not be needed if that were truly the case.

Stacey Dash Says Transgender People Should Pee in Bushes, Claims Feminism Is Ruining Men

"It's tyranny by the minority. Why do I have to suffer because you can't decide what you wanna be that day?" Dash said in a sit-down with ET's Nischelle Turner, going on to claim that Jenner being trans was a choice. "It's your body! So, it's your decision, right? We all make choices."

What Did the Death of Bobby Kennedy Mean? And Who Was the Second Shooter?

In commemoration of Bobby Kennedy’s assassination on this day nearly half a century ago, WhoWhatWhy offers a real treat to students of history. In an extensive podcast, Kennedy confidante Paul Schrade, who was also shot that fateful night, talks about his relationship to RFK and reveals insights never heard before. The 91-year-old Schrade begins with a leisurely reminiscence on early labor and political days, of special interest to those with some background in those issues. Starting nine minutes in, he turns to the RFK assassination.

Paul Schrade had known Bobby Kennedy for years. They had worked in the political trenches, helped organize the farmworkers in California and developed a close bond. That night in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel, Schrade was shot in the head and Kennedy was killed. For years Schrade has maintained that Sirhan Sirhan was not the lone shooter. He has devoted himself to proving that assertion.

Catherine Austin Fitts: Trump Has A Greenlight From The US Military-Intelligence Services

“Hillary has to go to jail.” Donald Trump

Catherine Austin Fitts told Greg Hunter that Donald Trump could not go after Hillary without the permission of the US Military and Intelligence services. She also said that her personal experience with Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Charlie Black convinces her that Trump has the best men in American politics at dishing dirt. Catherine is a former managing partner at Dillon Read Investment Bank and served as Housing Commissioner under George H W Bush. Catherine suffered from excessive honesty and was run out of Washington. She was subsequently been sued and investigated at least 19 times.

Nobody seems to understand the significance of Trump having a Greenlight.

Hillary Clinton: Electing a Foreign Spy for President?

For many analysts, therefore, the issue is procedural, moral and ethical. Mme. Clinton had placed herself above and beyond the norms of State Department discipline. This evidence of her arrogance, dishonesty and blatant disregard for rules should disqualify her from becoming the President of the United States. While revelations of Clinton’s misuse of official documents, her private system of communication and correspondence and the shredding of tens of thousands of her official interchanges, including top secret documents, are important issues to investigate, these do not address the paramount political question: On whose behalf was Secretary Clinton carrying out the business of US foreign policy, out of the review of government oversight?

Hillary Clinton: Electing a “Foreign Spy” for President?

Secretary Clinton went to extraordinary lengths to serve Israel, even undermining the interests of the United States. It is bizarre that she would resort to such a crude measure, setting up a private e-mail server to conduct state business. She blithely ignored official State Department policy and oversight and forwarded over 1,300 confidential documents and 22 highly sensitive top-secret documents related to the ‘Special Access Program’. She detailed US military and intelligence documents on US strategic policies on Syria, Iraq, Palestine and other vital regimes. The Inspector General’s report indicates that ‘she was warned’ about her practice. It is only because of the unusual stranglehold Tel Aviv and Israel’s US Fifth Column have over the US government and judiciary that her actions have not been prosecuted as high treason. It is the height of hypocrisy that government whistleblowers have been persecuted and jailed by the Obama Administration for raising concerns within the Inspector General system of oversight, while Secretary Clinton is on her way to the Presidency of the United States!

9/11's Conspiracy Trio Falling Apart

Alarmed by the willingness of its regional ally Saudi Arabia to question the official version of 9/11, Israel weighed in with New York Democratic Senator Charles Schumer to place a “poison pill” in the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism (JASTA) bill that cleared the Senate in a unanimous vote. The bill would allow the families of the victims of foreign government-sponsored terrorism to sue the governments involved for damages. The law, which President Obama indicated he would veto, would lift “sovereign immunity” on countries like Saudi Arabia, thus making them liable for civil law suits. Schumer placed an amendment inside the JASTA bill that would allow Saudi Arabia to avoid law suits so long as the U.S. State and Justice Departments certified to the trial judge hearing any JASTA case that the two departments were making good faith efforts with the defendant country to resolve any issues bilaterally. Schumer’s amendment—the Stay of Actions Pending State Negotiations—would also allow the State and Justice Departments to seek from the court continual 180-day stays, thus killing any lawsuits indefinitely.

Israel is also concerned that it, too, could face lawsuits under the provisions of JASTA. WMR has previously reported that some of the footnotes in the classified 28 pages provide links that lead to Israeli involvement in 9/11. It is noteworthy that the Saudis are blaming the George W. Bush administration for carrying out 9/11 and are leaving Israel out of the equation. Schumer’s actions on behalf of the Saudis are a clear indication that the Saudi-Israeli alliance remains intact.
