Clinton Foundation Investigation Could Spell Hillary’s Doom

This sort of corruption would be intolerable to liberals and the mainstream media if a Republican were engaged in it. Yet these same liberals reflexively dismiss all such corruption claims against team Clinton as lacking "definitive proof" or as insignificant or immaterial. As a result, for too long, the Clintons have gotten away such scams. One can only hope that this time Bill and Hillary meet their match in U.S. attorney Bharara.

UK Complicit In Al Khalifa Crimes In Bahrain: Analyst

Japanese Government Continues To Ban The MMR Vaccine

For many years, controversy has surrounded the three-in-one vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella.

Not Everyone Makes It Through The Ravine

Broken minds and souls
littered left and right.
The sometimes invisible pathway
is treacherous.
You can’t always trust the help…
when it’s even there.
Vultures circling you by day,

Here’s a good example of how government ‘watch lists’ fail

A recent audit of a California database designed to keep track of known gang members in the state revealed that the watch list included the names of dozens of admitted gang members who are still in diapers. -- Proponents of efforts to prohibit gun ownership for people who end up on the federal government’s terror watch lists frame the proposals as no-brainers that will make all Americans safer. But what they never talk about is the inefficiency and downright inaccuracy of the government-maintained rosters that sometimes stand between citizens and basic rights.

For all the hand-wringing about the threat to liberty and constitutional government posed by the major party presidential candidates, there is little discussion of how this threat is due to the political class’s long history of supporting expanded presidential power. There is also little talk of how the imperial presidency is just as much a creation of Congress as it is of power-hungry presidents.

Last month Tzachi Hanegbi, minister for national security, became the first government official to admit that hundreds of babies had been stolen from their mothers in the years immediately following Israel’s creation in 1948. In truth, the number is more likely to be in the thousands.

45th Anniversary: The Day Nixon Killed Keynes’ Phony Gold Standard

If the free market does not produce a gold standard, it's a fake standard. It is based on government promises. Do not trust it. Nixon implemented what was implicit from the beginning: a violation of contract with the public. Roosevelt had broken the contract with the American public in 1933. Nixon simply extended the betrayal to foreign central banks. It can be summarized in three words: "You dumb clucks."

The dark secret of Israel’s stolen babies

Jonathan Cook says Israel’s theft of thousands of Arab Jewish babies shows that its Arab Jews face the same enemy as the Palestinians: a European Jewish establishment resolutely opposed to living in peace and respect with either Arabs or the region.

Inciting Wars The American Way

The New York Times took notice recently of the role that so-called “think tanks” play in corrupting U.S. government policy.
