No looking back: the CIA torture report's aftermath

“I want to be absolutely clear with our people and the world. The United States does not torture,” said George W Bush on 6 September 2006.

Bush was, for the first time, acknowledging the existence of the program that Senate intelligence committee staff investigator Daniel Jones would later expose as taking power drills to the heads of captured men; making them stand with their arms stretched above their heads for days at a time; leaving at least one of them naked until he froze to death; waterboarding them to the point of catatonia as bubbles rose from their open mouths; and inserting pureed food into their rectums while claiming it was necessary for delivering nutrients.

Details of those procedures were outlined in the 525 pages which CIA director John Brennan, Barack Obama and White House chief of staff Denis McDonough allowed to become public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, two things happen:

People around the world understand that everything this government says about human rights and human dignity are simply bald-faced lies, only to be observed in the breach by the torture it commits or outsources, and:

When the US government tortures, it gives carte blanche to other countries which do not like us so well to torture American civilians and military personnel.

And as to that codswallop about torture producing valuable intelligence; torture only gets the tortured person to say what they think their captors want them to say to get the torture to stop, period, end of discussion.

One of the most effective interrogators during World War II was German Interrogator Hans Scharff, and he only used kindness and conversation to get what he wanted.

The Friendliest Interrogator Of World War II Was A German

Torture is morally evil; those who sign off on the use of torture (and yes, I am speaking of that unholy trinity of Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney), and those who torture, are mentally ill; there can be no other reasonable explanation, when such practices are both unnecessary, and extremely counterproductive

Obama slams Trump’s appearance on RT, compares Putin to Saddam Hussein

Barack Obama slammed Donald Trump for his appearance on RT last week, accusing the Republican nominee of trying to “curry favor” with the Russian president, whom he compared to Saddam Hussein in one of his harshest comments yet about Vladimir Putin.

Obama blasted Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump for offering a soundbite to the Larry King Politicking Show that airs on RT.

When the interviewer asks him [Trump], ‘why do you support this guy [Putin]?’ He says, ‘He is a strong guy. Look, he’s got an 82 percent poll rating.’ Well, yes, Saddam Hussein had a 90 percent poll rating. If you control the media and you’ve taken away everybody's civil liberties, and you jail dissidents, that's what happens,” Obama claimed, addressing the crowd at a Hillary Clinton campaign event in Philadelphia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is something deliciously ironic about the statements Obama has made here.

His administration has:

1. Complete control over the corporate/presstitute media.


2. The Obama Administration has jailed more whistleblowers than has any other administration.

Obama Has Sentenced Whistleblowers to 31 Times the Jail Time of All Prior U.S. Presidents COMBINED

3. Under President Obama's watch, the US has bombed 7 countries:

Barack Obama: The Nobel Peace Prize Winner Who’s Bombed 7 Countries

4. Under President Obama's watch, the national debt has skyrocketed.

US Debt Crisis: National Debt Nearly Doubles In 7 Years, Student Loan Debt Grows $2,000 Per Second, Ontario Is Now The World’s Most Indebted Sub-sovereign Borrower… Taxes to SKYROCKET

5. Under President Obama's watch, poverty in this country has exploded.

That’s rich: Poverty level under Obama breaks 50-year record

6. Under President Obama's watch, tent cities of America's homeless continue to rise.

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes

In conclusion, we can see, writ large, that it has been President Obama who

"... invades smaller countries, jails his opponents, controls the press, and drives his economy into a recession."

Sorry, Mr. President, but you don't get a ride on your own abysmal failures as President by sniping at what Trump had to say on President Putin.

The Death Of Mainstream Media

The New York Times’ endorsement of Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary consists of an unreadable, illogical piece of fiction. In this post, I will critique the paper’s position in detail, but first I want to take a step back and explain to people what I think is going on in the bigger picture.

In its endorsement of Hillary, the New York Times editorial board did such a sloppy job I can’t help but think it may have done permanent damage to its brand. Upon reading it, my initial conclusion was that the editorial board was either suffering from Stockholm syndrome or merely concerned about losing advertising revenues should they endorse Sanders. Then I thought some more and I realized my initial conclusions were wrong. Something else is going on here, something far more subtle, subconscious and illuminating. The New York Times is defending the establishment candidate simply because the New York Times is the establishment.

Former DNC Chair Calls For "Contingency Plan" If Hillary's Health Forces Her Out Of The Race

But the biggest surprise resulting from Hillary's "Medical event", is that overnight, even democrats admitted what was formerly unthinkable: the preparation of a "contingency plan" in case Hillary's health forces her out of the race.

As Politico reports, former Democratic National Committee chairman, Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid, said that Obama and the Democratic party’s congressional leaders should immediately come up with a process to identify a potential successor candidate for Hillary Clinton "for the off-chance a health emergency forces her out of the race."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fowler had the guts to do this out loud, which was remarkable.

And to the writer of this article; I would like to politely remind you that it was the "independent media", which you have chosen to label "the fringe media" which uncovered the the following realities:

1: 9/11 was an event orchestrated by elements of both the US and Israeli governments and military to engender American anger, first at Afghanistan, then Iraq, when the actual goals were control of the pipelines in Afghanistan, and its mineral wealth, and the control of Iraq's oil, and in what currency it could be bought at sold.

2: Saddam Hussein did absolutely NOT have those "alleged" weapons of mass destruction; that was simply a lie to sell the war.

3. There have been consistent problems with Hillary Clinton's health, which the American public knows absolutely nothing about.

After "September Disaster For Clinton", Democrats Near "Full-On Panic Mode"

Hillary is in the midst of a "September Disaster" and we're only weeks away from the "October Surprise" promised by WikiLeaks which purports to have 1,000s of additional damaging Hillary emails to release. According to The Hill, Clinton's "basket of deplorables" followed by her "medical episode" that resulted in a public display of her being dragged, limp and helpless, into a van, has democrats on the verge of "full-on panic mode."

Meanwhile, Boston University professor, Tobe Berkovitz, isn't buying efforts by the Clinton campaign to downplay the impact of Hillary's 9/11 "medical episode" saying that on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most damaging, the event was a 15. As Berkovitz points out, no amount of spin from the Clinton camp can remove that moment of complete frailty from the minds of voters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You just "can't unsee" what happened to Hillary Clinton on Sunday, and it makes a powerful argument against her being fit, physically, to be this country's commander in chief.

Sep 13 12:00

Hillary Became Unelectable Long Ago

The relevance of yesterday’s health episode is not that it made her unelectable, but rather that it might have finally convinced enough of her financial backers that they risk losing the capital invested in ‘their’ candidates’ campaign. She’s their liability now too. I’ve seen people suggest that Trump is throwing his campaign as a way to help Hillary, but I sometimes think it may well be the other way around.

It’s kind of hard to imagine, looking back, for someone to run a worse campaign than Hillary has, but then that’s obvious when you look at how many things had to be kept hidden, how many lies had to be told, how many narratives had to be spun. It just got to be too much, for her, and for the staff. The outcome was always predictable, but they figured they could get away with it.

NPR Station Publishes Anti-Trump Comic for Teachers, Children to Use in Class

San Francisco Bay Area NPR affiliate KQED has published a comic book guide to Donald Trump’s immigration policy, aimed at students, which is titled “Fear of Foreigners” and casts Trump as part of the “History of Nativism in America.”
The comic book slide show, illustrated by Andy Warner, is part of KQED’s series “The Lowdown,” described by the station as “Connecting newsroom to classroom,” and is presented among “lesson plans and education guides” for teachers to use.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry: KQED just crossed a line here, and should have its broadcasting license revoked.

Substituting clever demagoguery for history, and particularly demonstrating rampant political favoritism in an election year, is a big, tacky, hairy no-no.

The executives at KQED should have known better; but because they were obviously indulging in the process of "collective magical thinking", they didn't believe that this little bit of trickery would be found out.

Sorry, guys and gals: you're busted on this one!!

"I Protected Hillary Clinton In The Secret Service - Here's Why Her 'Fainting' Video Really Scares Me"

After 9/11, Dick Cheney spoke of how his security detail, when moving him to a secure area, lifted him by his Secret Service issued un-snap-able belt, which is used to lift and move a protectee to where they wanted the person to go.

Hillary Clinton was not wearing this standard issue belt.

So what did we hear after? At first it was that she overheated and dehydrated. Now it’s pneumonia. Before, videos of her similar spastic bizarre movement were blamed on allergies and other excuses. Clearly, the totality of her prior blood clots and deep vein thrombosis, along with her concussion and related broken elbow, tell a different story.

Fifteen Years Later, Physics Journal Concludes All Three WTC Towers Collapsed on 9/11 Due to Controlled Demolition

Over the past 15 years many highly respected academics and experts have come forward to challenge the official narrative on the collapse of the WTC towers forwarded by the U.S. government. The official government position holds that the collapse of all three towers was due to intense heat inside of the buildings.

But a new forensic investigation into the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers on 9/11, published in Europhysics News – a highly respected European physics magazine – claims that “the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.”

While many in the mainstream have attempted to label anyone questioning the official narrative as “tin foil hat” conspiracy theorist, many highly respected experts have come forward to lampoon the idea that the buildings collapsed due to the intense heat and fires following two terrorist-directed plane crashes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple: the government lied to us about 9/11; they lied to us about "Saddam's nuclear weapons"; and they are lying to us about Hillary Clinton's health.

This is why the US government, and their corporate presstitutes, have no credibility whatsoever, and cannot be believed on anything.

US Citizens Can’t Sue Saudis for Perpetrating 9/11, but Can Sue Iranians Who Had Nothing to Do With It: Obama

the House and Senate have unanimously passed an act that could make it possible for US 9/11 victims to sue Saudis for their complicity in perpetrating the 9/11 attack.

Bush and Obama censored for more than a decade the evidence of Saudi involvement while they invaded Iraq, killing at least hundreds of thousands of people.

Obama is now reasserting his intention to veto the act, but, as Jason Ditz reports, will still allow “9/11 victims to sue Iran, even though Iran had nothing to do with the attack”.

Ditz continues that this is in keeping with the standard US practice of “protecting its allies [and itself] from lawsuits while setting up suits against international rivals”. (The US has been attempting to reconquer Iran since 1979 when the US’s Iranian proxy-dictator, whom Amnesty International called one of the world’s worst human rights violators, was overthrown.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks: this is American foreign policy ON DRUGS!!

And the reason Obama is going to veto the bill about Americans being able to sue Saudi Arabia is purely economic; as reported at cnn.com on 16 May, 2016:

Revealed: Saudi Arabia owns $117 billion of U.S. debt

Were Saudi Arabia to dump their holdings all at once, it would send the US economy crashing, perhaps irrecoverably, instantaneously.

German Police Tell Women 'Wear Sneakers' to Outrun Migrant Rapists

German police finally came up with a solution to the migrant rape crisis: tell women to wear sneakers so they can outrun their migrant rapists -- even though they're all young men.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Is THIS the best the German government and police have to offer young German women at risk from this kind of attack?!?

Because, upon hearing that, were I a young German woman, I would be enrolling in a self-defense course right now, and carrying every kind of legal weapon imaginable.

The walking in groups advice provides strength through numbers, and that may not be a bad thing, particularly if they are sister students from your self-defence classes.

The only way to prevent these attacks is do demonstrate - en masse - that there will be payback for them, and that they simply will not be tolerated.

And secondly, were I a young German woman of voting age, I would vote the Merkel government out of office as quickly as possible, and in a manner that it will make Angela Merkel's head spin!

Nine states will have marijuana initiatives on the ballot in November. Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada will vote to legalize marijuana, and Arkansas, Florida, Montana, and North Dakota will put medical marijuana on the ballot. Despite more than half of polled Americans saying they support the legalization of marijuana—and 89 percent indicating they favor removing criminal penalty for medical marijuana patients—the federal government continues to categorized cannabis as a Schedule I narcotic along with with heroin, LSD, and psychedelic mushrooms. Currently, there are nearly a million and a half Americans legally using medical marijuana under state laws and a far larger number using it illegally for a wide variety of medical conditions.

Jimmy Kimmel Admits Faking Hillary Clinton Pickle Jar Skit - Jar Pre-Opened Before Show

Jimmy Kimmel admits that the skit where Hillary Clinton opened a jar of pickles to "prove" she was "healthy" was fake and the jar was already opened to make sure she wouldn't fail on national television. #PickleGate controversy won't go away after Kimmel was called out for staging the stunt trying to get people to laugh of concerns about Hillary's Health. Media analyst Mark Dice has the story. © 2016 by Mark Dice

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike Rivero called this the moment he saw/heard it, and mentioned, very publicly, that there was no "snap" sound of the vacuum being broken on the pickle jar lid; and now Kimmel confirms the jar-opening bit was a complete fake.

And now, in light of Clinton's collapse on Sunday, Kimmel will have to live with the label "the guy enabling Hillary's lies about her health" for the rest of his life.

I don't consider this funny at all.

I frankly don't want a lying faker, or their lying-enabling minions, running this country.

I want an honest, honorable person, who put the needs and concerns of the American people first, second, and third, and fix the enormous messes which are the true, and troubling, "legacy" of the Obama Administration.

Israel eyeing Gaza-bound 'women's flotilla' setting sail from Barcelona

Despite the recent reconciliation of ties between Israel and Turkey, it appears that the controversial Gaza-bound flotilla movement has yet to subside.

An activist flotilla sailing under the banner "Mujeres Rumbo a Gaza" (Women's Boat to Gaza) was set to anchor off from Barcelona on Wednesday evening toward the Gaza Strip.

The small fleet of two vessels was slated to carry dozens of women from various nations, including Israel, with the aim of breaching and boycotting Israel's naval blockade of the coastal Palestinian enclave.

Meanwhile, Israel was prepared to thwart the flotilla from illegally infringing on the maritime blockade of Gaza, which was established in 2007 following the terrorist group Hamas's takeover of the Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These women need to be prepared for getting physically battered, and ultimately killed, by the IDF, no matter how peaceful they are, to insure that the Israeli blockade of Gaza continues, unabated.

And when that happens, I hope to heaven that several people on those boats with cell cameras capture those images, and make them go viral.

This is what Israeli officials are terrified of; that the brutality against Palestinians and pro-Palestinian supporters is documented, and witnessed in an incontrovertible way, because they know that this blockade is both morally and legally wrong.

Chaffetz subpoenas FBI for full Clinton email probe file

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz publicly subpoenaed the FBI's full case file in the Hillary Clinton email investigation Monday, delivering the document demand to a senior FBI official during a contentious hearing where Democrats accused Republicans of mounting a partisan attack on Clinton's presidential campaign.

"It's 'trust, but verify' is how it works," Chaffetz told FBI acting legislative affairs chief Jason Herring. "You don't get to decide what I get to see. I get to see it all."

After Herring said he could not promise to deliver all the investigative summaries—known as 302s—in an unedited form, Chaffetz sent the subpoena down from the dais to the witness table where the FBI official sat with colleagues from six other agencies.

"I've signed this subpoena. We want all the 302s....and you are hereby served," Chaffetz said.

The chairman also complained that the FBI was trying to decide for itself what was relevant to the committee's probe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know how well this will play out for Chaffetz; however, I would speculate that ultimately, it may not be Hillary's health that will prevent her from continuing on the campaign trail, but a cascade of impending indictments, ripping away at the rotten underbelly of how the Clinton Cartel really functions.

Report: US, Israel Agree on $38 Billion Military Aid Deal

Israel’s Channel 2 has today reported that Israeli officials have accepted the most recent US military aid package, which will see them receiving some $38 billion over the next decade. Israeli officials are said to be eager to finalize it, and it is expected to be signed in the next few days.

This comes just a day after a report in the Washington Post claiming that the deal was being held up by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC), who was planning to advance his own, slightly larger military aid bill through the Senate and accused Obama of trying to take over appropriations duties that are rightfully Congress’.

Graham says Benjamin Netanyahu warned him he was holding up the deal, and that he told Netanyahu to tell the Obama Administration “to go F themselves.” The White House was said to be reluctant to sign the deal with Graham so outraged by it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is fascinating to me that this Congress and President can so blithely throw money at a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, while being oblivious the real pain imposed by Obama's disastrous economic policies here at home, which are certainly bearing "fruit", as evidenced from this headline reported at zerohedge.com yesterday:

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes''

These people have become marginalized; made to feel irrelevant; and become absolutely lost to a national leadership thoroughly fixated on throwing money at a foreign leader like Netanyahu, who has done absolutely nothing to deserve it, rather than fixing the massive, looming economic problems here at home.

Her detail knew that there was something very wrong with her and they were prepared. When I protected her, I witnessed her irate behavior and, frankly, I don’t think anyone can operate with such uncontrollable fits of anger and not have it take a toll on a person’s health—I think that’s exactly what has resulted. I can’t help but feel sorry for her detail, because I know from personal experience that they will bear the burden for as long as their mental and physical resilience will tolerate. I bet that night they got berated for letting this “leak,” but it has nothing to do with their performance and everything to do with her character.

Post 9/11 Afghanistan: Opium Cultivation, Production Increases Nearly 20-Fold

Since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, the area under opium cultivation in the country has increased 23 fold to an area nearly ten times the size of Washington, D.C., while production of the illicit drug has skyrocketed 18-fold, from 185 metric tons to 3,300.

Opium cultivation and production has thrived over the course of the Afghanistan war despite a dramatic drop after the U.S. and NATO ended their combat mission in Afghanistan and withdrew most of their troops at the end of 2014.

Amid the ongoing heroin epidemic in the United States that is killing thousands, the White House and other government agencies have sounded the alarm on Afghanistan heroinpossibly flowing into the U.S. through Canada, where most of the heroin available is from Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the myriad reasons the US government will never leave Afghanistan; the sale of illicit drugs by U.S. "alphabet soup" agencies to fund off the books operations.

Facebook Is Collaborating With the Israeli Government to Determine What Should Be Censored

LAST WEEK, A MAJOR censorship controversy erupted when Facebook began deleting all posts containing the iconic photograph of the Vietnamese “Napalm Girl” on the ground that it violated the company’s ban on “child nudity.” Facebook even deleted a post from the prime minister of Norway, who posted the photograph in protest of the censorship. As outrage spread, Facebook ultimately reversed itself — acknowledging “the history and global importance of this image in documenting a particular moment in time” — but this episode illustrated many of the dangers I’ve previously highlighted in having private tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google become the arbiters of what we can and cannot see.

CIA & White House tried to suppress Senate torture probe – report

A Senate report into the CIA’s use of torture and its cover-up was heavily redacted and almost never published, with the Obama administration trying to protect the agency, its lead investigator has revealed for the first time.

Daniel Jones, the Senate Intelligence Committee staffer who led the probe into the CIA’s detention and interrogation program following 9/11, has revealed the drama behind the six-year effort in a three-part expose authored by Spencer Ackerman and published over the weekend by the Guardian.

From 2008 to 2014, Jones and his colleagues examined over 6.3 million CIA documents, eventually authoring a 6,700-page classified report concluding that the agency had lied about torture to two US presidents, Congress and the public.

The world is turning ugly as 2016 winds down

I have to say that the negative reverberations in our current economic and political environment are becoming so strong that it is impossible for people to not feel at least some uneasiness in their gut. I imagine this is the same kind of sensation many felt from 1914 to 1918 during World War I and the terrible birth of communism, or perhaps in the early 1930s at the onset of the Great Depression and the rise of fascism. Some global changes are so disturbing that they send shockwaves through the collective unconscious before they ever hit the mainstream. People know that something is about to happen, even if they cannot yet clearly define it.

Google Supports Hillary

Everything in America, including our Internet search engine, is corrupt. Progressive Stephen Lendman reports that Google has put its search engine in support of Hillary, a crazed warmonger with medical problems, as president of the US.

What is extraordinary is that the rest of the world’s governments have accepted US control of the Internet and relies on the United States, the tyrannical government of which despises every country that is not an American puppet state. Why militarily powerful countries such as Russia and China and rich countries such as China allow Washington to control the Internet is the mystery of our time.

The need is desperate for competing Internet systems and search engines available to all, or the Internet will become another censored provider of Washington propaganda.

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless Booming Across America

Just like during the last economic crisis, homeless encampments are popping up all over the nation as poverty grows at a very alarming rate. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than half a million people are homeless in America right now, but that figure is increasing by the day. And it isn’t just adults that we are talking about. It has been reported that that the number of homeless children in this country has risen by 60 percent since the last recession, and Poverty USA says that a total of 1.6 million children slept either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing at some point last year. Yes, the stock market may have been experiencing a temporary boom for the last couple of years, but for those on the low end of the economic scale things have just continued to deteriorate.

EU bigwig in THREAT to Spain: The next government WILL have to enforce economic cutbacks

AN EU bigwig has warned Span that their budget problems "have not evaporated" in a extraordinary intervention, which undermined the country's sovereignty.

In a shocking concession Eurogroup boss Jeroen Dijsselbloem even said he would like to form the Spanish government himself to make sure it stuck to fiscal pledges.

Mr Dijsselbloem said: "Problems are still there, so they will have to face them and return to the right path."

Woolsey, James

Project For The New American Century huh! Great pick Donald.

R. James Woolsey, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) under President Bill Clinton from 1993-1995, is a well-connected advocate of militarist U.S. foreign policies. He has supported the work of several neoconservative-led groups, including the Committee on the Present Danger, the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, the Project for the New American Century, the Center for Security Policy, among numerous others.

Since 2011, Woolsey has chaired the board of directors of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, an important bastion of hawkish “pro-Israel” advocacy in the United States that has served as an outpost for many well-known rightist ideologues.

Central Banks May Choose Helicopter Money Over Negative Rates

Against this backdrop it would be surprising if governments and their central banks will not opt at some stage for higher inflation in an attempt to escape the problems their policies and the issuance of unbacked paper money has caused in the first place. Alas, it wouldn’t be the first time in monetary history that unbacked paper money would be deliberately debased.

When Hillary collapsed this weekend so did her credibility. Her inability to just be straight with America is what's truly Deplorable

Hillary Clinton made a terrible mistake on Friday night.
Speaking to a star-studded audience at a fund-raiser in New York, she inexplicably decided to abuse, denigrate and mock tens of millions of her fellow Americans.
‘You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,’ she sneered. ‘Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.’

The well-heeled, affluent, liberal, metropolitan elite crowd at super-fancy Cipriani restaurant in Wall Street, where Barbra Streisand and Rufus Wainwright performed that same night, whooped and hollered.

I didn’t. Like many, I just winced when I saw it.

It was an astonishingly crass thing to say.

Far worse, I would suggest, than Mitt Romney’s infamous 47% gaffe during the last election campaign, when he suggested half the country were entitled victims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are many occasions when Mr. Morgan and I do not see eye to eye, but in this instance, we absolutely do.

And the ultimate question which must be asked, is, if Hillary Clinton has been lying about her health, what else have she and her team been lying about?!?

There were two startling discoveries I made, in doing some research about the Clinton Foundation, and both are a tremendous cause for concern:


Hillary Clinton Took Millions from Anti-LGBT Countries That Jail and Execute Gays

And the second:
Clinton Foundation took money from countries allowing female genital mutilation

If, in fact, Clinton is pro-woman, and pro-LGBTQ, why in the name of heaven would the Clinton Foundation accept ANY money from countries still permitting these barbaric, cruel practices against women, and their LGBTQ communities?!?

The mind boggles.

And don't you dare tell me "she didn't know"; with the wealth of information at her fingertips, how could she not understand that this was going on in those countries which donated to her foundation?!?

At the end of the day, looking at how she and her team have lied their heads off about her health issues, the short, honest answer nearly has to be, "She knew, but didn't give a damn."

The Democratic National Committee is set to hold an emergency meeting during which it will consider replacing Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate after her collapse in New York yesterday.
According to Emmy award winning broadcaster David Shuster, Democratic Party operatives will stage a crisis summit during which they will begin the search for an alternative in light of Clinton’s health problems – and an apparent effort by her campaign to cover them up.

Clarification from dem operatives @HillaryClinton pneumonia: Expect emergency DNC meeting to CONSIDER replacement. #HillarysHealth
— David Shuster (@DavidShuster) September 11, 2016

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, these developments prove true, it puts American politics into some very uncharted waters.

Cokie Roberts: Dems ‘Nervously Beginning to Whisper’ About Hillary Replacement; Floats Biden as Possibility

Sep 12 11:49

Why Did Hillary Clinton Lie About Her Health?

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign just made a massive error. We'll know within the next few weeks if the error will prove to be catastrophic.

On Sunday, Clinton abruptly left a Manhattan ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. A video shows her shakily stumbling while trying to get into a van to leave. The candidate's physician later offered this explanation: Clinton has had an allergy-related cough for some time, and during an examination on Friday, the Democratic nominee was diagnosed with pneumonia, put on antibiotics, and told to take time out to rest. She became overheated and dehydrated during Sunday morning's event, which led her to collapse. She's now home in Chappaqua and on the road to recovery.

Compare this timeline to details from Hillary Clinton's public schedule and behavior over these same two days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to speculate: is Clinton's pneumonia somewhat akin to the "Brezhnev Flu", and is she a lot more ill than the campaign wants to let on?!?!?

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes

Just like during the last economic crisis, homeless encampments are popping up all over the nation as poverty grows at a very alarming rate. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than half a million people are homeless in America right now, but that figure is increasing by the day. And it isn’t just adults that we are talking about. It has been reported that that the number of homeless children in this country has risen by 60 percent since the last recession, and Poverty USA says that a total of 1.6 million children slept either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing at some point last year. Yes, the stock market may have been experiencing a temporary boom for the last couple of years, but for those on the low end of the economic scale things have just continued to deteriorate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has billions of dollars for bombs and extrajudicial assassinations; however, apparently, these people who have fallen off a cliff into extreme poverty do not matter at all to local, county, and federal government, except as a "health and property hazard."

I deeply feel that one of the most critical measures of a society is how they treat their most vulnerable citizens; and in this measure, the US government is failing, miserably.

Reckless Security Firm Hired to Protect Dakota Pipeline Company Has Dark Past in Palestine

When the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe mobilized thousands to protect their land and water in Cannon Ball, North Dakota from a proposed $3.8 billion crude-oil pipeline, they were met with national guard deployments, police crackdowns, an FBI investigation and private security forces that attacked them with dogs. A key firm hired during this time to provide security for the pipeline company, Dakota Access LLC, is the British multinational G4S—one of the largest private security corporations in the world targeted by a years-long global boycott campaign for profiting from the inhumane treatment of Palestinians in Israeli prisons, including the torture of children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

G4S tortured Palestinian children in Israeli jails?!?

No wonder Energy Transfer Partners knew they would be the absolutely perfect firm to deal with these Indigenous American protesters!!!

Chelsea Manning Begins Hunger Strike, Demanding “Dignity and Respect” in Prison

Starting on Friday, Manning said, she would not willingly consume any food or drink, except water and prescribed medications.

Manning also refused to “voluntarily cut or shorten her hair in any way.” Army officials repeatedly force Manning to cut her hair to “military standards” – an appearance that she says does not reflect her gender identity.

Human rights advocates have repeatedly raised concerns about Manning’s treatment in prison. After her arrest in 2010, she was subjected to solitary confinement for extended periods and repeatedly stripped naked in her cell. Her treatment was so bad that a State Department spokesperson spoke out against the Pentagon and described it as “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid.”

Since her conviction, Manning has been repeatedly threatened with indefinite solitary confinement, for charges as frivolous as keeping an expired tube of toothpaste in her cell.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman was charged and jailed for telling the truth, in an environment of repeated governmental and military lies.

She embarrassed this government and military for telling the truth; that is why she will most likely die in a military prison.

That the US government and military are trying to make a martyr our of her does not speak well for peace and justice in this country at all.

The Tyranny of 9/11

We’ve walked a strange and harrowing road since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties.

We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade the citizenry to march in lockstep with a police state. In doing so, we have proven Osama Bin Laden right. He warned that “freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in – and the West in general – into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”

These past 15 years have indeed been an unbearable, choking hell.

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The price American citizens have paid for 9/11 has been that of 15 years of perpetual wars in the Middle East and beyond (with no seeming end in sight), in order to control raw materials, and insure that they are only sold for the US dollar.

The cost of these wars has been staggering, as have been the costs of resettling war refugees in this country.

We can believe nothing the Federal government or their media presstitutes say, after 9/11, and the charge that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of Mass Destruction."

The corrupt, dictatorial narcopracy our government has become reminds me greatly of Terry Gilliam's master film, "Brazil", where the only information one is allowed to have comes directly from the government bureaucracy, and no alternative thoughts were allowed. The citizenry was totally disposable; and torture was a standard way of "getting the truth" out of its citizens.

And if you don't believe such things have not already happened here, you need to read this article from theguardian.com from last year:

The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden 'black site'

I criticise this country because, as a Christian pacifist activist, I want it to find ways of resolving its geopolitical disputes other than wars; unfortunately, the US government's engaging in good faith, hard-one negotiations seems no longer something it wants to do, ever.

In looking at the future, and I hope I am absolutely wrong here, I see one which is very bleak for the American people.

It appears that the US government is spoiling for wars against Russia and China; this is a very, very bad idea right now, because, as of this moment, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing; or the money to insure a positive outcome to military confrontation with Russia and/or China.

And if you want a perfect example, take a look at all the the problems with the Lockheed-Martin "frankenfighter", the F-35:


We truly have a government of the corporations; for the corporations; and by the corporations; and in the most peaceful, logical way possible, that has got to change.

And there is a duel method for this; the first is throwing every single career politician in DC out of office, and insuring clean, no-glitch voting by using paper ballots, and the presentation of simple-to-acquire voter IDs.

15 years after 9/11; perpetual war and liberties lost

So 15 years of war has brought us no closer to peace and has cost us our freedoms. After all, war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength. That’s what we should never forget.

Hillary Clinton may beat pneumonia. But she won't beat a condition far more fatal: untrustworthiness. Why not just admit the pneumonia? It's not as if there's a stigma to catching it. After all, Hillary Clinton's full-time job right now is rushing from place to place on those tube-shaped petri dishes called airplanes, speaking for hours on end with little sleep, and then diving into crowds of often unwashed deplorables thrusting babies into her face. The larger question that will be raised by the "health scare" is the one that has dogged Clinton forever: Why does she create cover stories rather than reveal the truth? At many critical turns in her lengthy career, Clinton has chosen obfuscation rather than revelation. (Here's a nice list) So do you think the public — nearly 60% which doesn't trust her already, according to polls — will again feel "misled" by Hillary Clinton and her failure to be honest about her health?

Netanyahu’s Land-Grab Strategy

Behind the smokescreen of the broader Mideast chaos, Israel pursues a strategy of gobbling up Palestinian lands to establish de facto control of the West Bank while confining indigenous Arabs to isolated cantons, explains Alon Ben-Meir.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his coalition partners, however, are not concerned about the prospective dire repercussions of settlement activity. They put the sanctity of the land above any other consideration, and view the settlement enterprise as the prerequisite to repossessing the entire historic “land of Israel.”

Recent Corruptions of the English Language

For instance, stimulate the economy. That phrase came out in the ’60s. It really just means “print up money.” They don’t use it much anymore because they can see it no longer results in stimulus; rather, the opposite. Now it’s called quantitative easing. And everybody uses it without questioning the fact that it means “print money,” “inflate the currency,” or “debase the currency.” They say “quantitative easing” with no irony. It makes me think the chattering classes are actually, in reality, quite stupid. I’ll discuss that word—“stupid”—later.

Is There a Network or Newspaper in America That Doesn’t Lie?

I have some questions for you, dear readers: Is it simply me, or is there no newspaper or network in America that tells it like it is anymore? Take, for example, the Anthony Weiner case. He is the pervert who keeps sending pictures of his penis to women over the internet, more often than not while in the company of his 4-year-old son. If a man like that were married to Donald Trump’s closest assistant, The Donald would have been forced out of the race by now, no ifs or buts about it. But over on the other side, Hillary confirmed her trust in Huma Abedin—a Saudi-trained Muslim and her closest adviser—who finally separated from the pervert and asked for her privacy to be respected. The compliant, ass-licking media followed orders. Hillary’s polls remained the same.

Never let a tragedy go unused. This mantra of the State is as strong today as it was the day after 9/11.

As 9/11 was used to invade and occupy Iraq and Afghanistan – securing a geopolitical foothold in the region like never before – civil rights were dismantled and energies were devoted to the development of a massive domestic surveillance state that Stasi Germany could only dream of.

Indeed, 9/11 served as the perfect pretext for carrying out the goals of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) – headed by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and other purveyors of U.S. military hegemony.

In a policy document called Rebuilding America’s Defenses published exactly one year before 9/11, PNAC wrote:

“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.“

For asking people what they thought about Tower 7 on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, a journalist was swarmed by cops and arrested.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, these police were suffering a severe case of SMD (selective memory disorder), and were unable to recall the First Amendment to the Constitution.

But seriously, were they ordered by their superiors to do this, any time someone might have an alternative version of what really happened on 9/11, and particularly Building 7, which was brought down by a controlled detonation?!?

And by the way, as reported yesterday at blacklistednews.com:


The third building to fall at free fall speed on September 11, 2001, was WTC7. It was not hit by a plane on 9/11 and yet imploded on itself at free fall speed like the other two towers, meaning that there was no resistance to its collapse, indicating a perfect demolition job by experts. The building’s collapse was mistakenly reported by the media ahead of time, at a time when news channels were all clambering over themselves to read from the same hymn sheet. The BBC managed to announce the collapse of the building before it happened, adding to the confusion of the day. Fifteen years later, empirical evidence and the laws of physics are still being ignored while millions have lost their lives and the world is on the brink of war. The third building was not even mentioned in the official 9/11 report. WTC7 housed a command center and other important offices. An alarm was sounded for rescue workers to evacuate the area prior to its collapse. anonhq reports:

A singular orthodoxy has infiltrated the discursive and parameters of U.S. and other universities and colleges. This orthodoxy now constitutes the ethical vocabulary of academia. Adopted from feminism, anti-racism, and LGBTQ theory and practice, the language, doctrines, and mechanisms of this orthodoxy now dominate academia's policies, procedures and handbooks. The terminology has become the vernacular among the swelling ranks of administrators, especially the relatively new cohort of chief diversity officers, directors of diversity, associate provosts of diversity, assistant provosts of diversity, diversity consultants, and so on and so on. I refer not merely to the orthodoxy of "diversity," but in particular to "diversity" initiativesas they are currently administered, using a particular set of policies, procedures, and mechanisms: trigger warnings, safe spaces, bias reporting, and the like.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Universities used to be about looking at controversial ideas which may well not mirror one's own thoughts; not today in the US educational system.

When these kids get out in the real world, and they realize just how brutally competitive the corporate workplace is, how are they ever going to function?!?

There are no "safe spaces"; no "trigger reports" no "bias response teams" in the real world; you either function, brilliantly, or you die, professionally.

It is just that simple.

The DNC Rules Are Clear If Hillary Drops Out The Second Candidate With The Highest Number Of Delegates Gets The Nomination

Spread the word. Under their own rules the nomination goes to the #2 candidate!

You have to understand that Bernie by following tradition has set himself up for the nomination should Julian Assange and WIKILEAKS bring Hillary down with further emails before the election.

If Clinton steps aside Sanders becomes the nominee, all because Bernie’s name was read into nomination. It was something the delegates pressed for in the rules committee.The DNC rules are clear if she drops out the second candidate with the highest number of delegates gets the nomination, in this case, Bernie Sanders!

A private security firm, guarding the highly controversial construction of a $3.8 billion oil pipeline, turned mercenary last weekend and were caught on video unleashing vicious attack dogs against a sizable crowd of peaceful protesters — including women and children. And now, the only people to be punished for the vicious attacks, are the ones who filmed it.

Saturday evening, Democracy Now! announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for host and executive producer Amy Goodman. Goodman, along with a team from the media outlet, were in North Dakota last week to cover the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would very strongly advocate to those corporations wanting to develop this property for oil pipeline, and the security companies who got exposed for their vile and vicious tactics, that attempting to prosecute either Amy Goodman, any of her staff, and the indigenous Americans who were protesting, will backfire spectacularly on you.

One cannot "unsee" what the world has seen, in terms of the cruelty of these actions against peaceful protesters.

Over the last decade, collecting DNA from people who are not charged with — or even suspected of — any particular crime has become an increasingly routine practice for police in smaller cities not only in Florida, but in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and North Carolina as well.

While the largest cities typically operate public labs and feed DNA samples into the FBI’s national database, cities like Melbourne have assembled databases of their own, often in partnership with private labs that offer such fast, cheap testing that police can afford to amass DNA even to investigate minor crimes, from burglary to vandalism.

And to compile samples for comparison, some jurisdictions also have quietly begun asking people to turn over DNA voluntarily during traffic stops, or even during what amount to chance encounters with police. In Melbourne, riding a bike at night without two functioning lights can lead to DNA swab — even if the rider is a minor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not about potential crime; this is about building a DNA data base which will morph from a state to a national bureau.

Unless I am told that I am suspected of a crime, where a DNA sample will prove me innocent, I will not give a DNA sample to anyone.

Period, end of discussion.

And there seem to be no standards for private DNA data bases; how the evidence is handled; processed; stored; and how long it will be kept.

A new study by the medical school of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts has revealed that the high cost of drugs in the United States is due to the country’s government granting of monopoly to the big pharmaceutical companies manufacturing the drugs.

Researchers of the study reviewed medical and health policy literature in the United States from January 2005 to July 2016, looking at articles addressing the source, justification and consequences of drug prices in the country. The study was accepted in the Journal of American Medical Association on August 23, 2016. The Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts also supported the study.

According to the study, high prescription drug prices in the United States are largely due to drug monopolies and restrictions on price negotiations enjoyed by Big Pharma.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absolute absence) of surprise.

Big Pharma is a key player political campaigns, and the big donors always get what they want in American politics.

When about 100 supporters of Palestinian human rights gathered in a hearing room at City Hall to voice their objections to an anti-1st amendment free speech resolution which opposes BDS, they didn’t expect a free inquiry into what BDS was or why this form of non-violent protest was a historically time honored form of protesting injustice going back, in American history, to the Boston Tea Party. But neither did they expect abject rudeness, a total lack of professionalism, and blatant hostility from a body of lawmakers purporting to represent all New Yorkers, not just Zionist supporters of current Israeli policy.

A Political Hurricane is About to Sweep Across Europe

If you’ve been paying attention, you could see this coming a mile away. Although I’ve forecast huge political shifts in the West for years now, I made my strongest prediction on European changes late last year following the Paris terror attacks.

In the post, A Message to Europe – Prepare for Nationalism I wrote:

Actions have consequences, and people can only be pushed so far before they snap. I believe the Paris terror attacks will be a major catalyst that will ultimately usher in nationalist type governments in many parts of Europe, culminating in an end of the EU as we know it and a return to true nation-states. Although I think a return to regional government and democracy is what Europeans need and deserve, the way in which it will come about, and the types of governments we could see emerge, are unlikely to be particularly enlightened or democratic after the dust has settled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Merkel's drubbing at the polls is a clear signal that the inhabitants of Europe want, very much, to take back their individual countries, thank you very much, and not suffer economically at the hands of an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels: and they are going to make that very clear to their leaders, come the next wave of elections in Europe.

Clinton Aides Attack, Threaten Reporter for Saying Hillary Looked ‘Low Energy’ at Friday Press Conference

Daily Mail U.S. Political Editor David Martosko was attacked online by current and former aides to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for commenting about Clinton’s tired, listless appearance at a press conference on Friday about national security. Martosko was also challenged by two reporters who defended Clinton.

When reporters are publicly attacked by high ranking political operatives it is not just meant to intimidate that reporter, it is meant to ‘other’ him by separating him from the herd and intimidate other reporters from following his lead.

Martosko was off the campaign trail and commented as he watched video of the press conference.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to David Martosko; sir, please stand your ground, and continue reporting the truth as you see it; it is vital that the truth get out there, and particularly for the American people as they go to the polls in November.

The strangest military gear on campus police’s back to school shopping list

Through the Department of Defense’s 1033 program, police departments are eligible to receive secondhand supplies once used by the U.S. military. Among the participating agencies are those hired by public educational institutions – state colleges, universities, and K-12 school districts.

In fact, 141 individual schools or school systems are listed by the Defense Logistics Agency’s July 2016 Inventory as having former military property in their possession. Some of these items are pretty standard, some are frightening to think about, and some are pretty difficult to make sense of. Below are a few of the latter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Knowing that this kind of military grade equipment was going to be on my child's school campus would be all the motivation I would need to pull that child out of school so quickly that it would make the Principal's head spin, and either home school them, or get them enrolled in a private school with a philosophy that sticking a gun in a kid's face, every time they misbehave, is real overkill.

Hillary Clinton Beyond Sociopathy!

The rise of left-wing fascism starts with one of her lies then another lie. Compounded! lie after lie, until the entire narrative is so false that neither the storyteller nor the words appear real. Hillary Clinton and her entourage have entered the zone of fascism where the lie is the truth and the truth, be it medical or otherwise, is completely suppressed by the state, media and political operatives identified as ‘liberals’.

In the early 1970’s, I had to study the works of Jurgen Habermas,a neo-Marxist philosopher of the Frankfurt School. He termed the rise of suppression of free speech by the state and it’s ancillary branches within the collective media as ‘left-wing fascism’.

WikiLeaks has released documents revealing corporate and government surveillance of the Mohawk people’s relationships with foreign countries, as well as evidence that movements that could block corporate plans for oil and gas were tracked and that Native American communities were monitored for the U.S. Department Homeland Security.

The documents — among 5 million of WikiLeaks’ Global Intelligence Files — were released this month.

World, meet Baracktrema obamai, a deadly turtle pathogen named in honor of our current president. Believe it or not, it’s supposed to be a compliment.

[Parasites] “face incredible obstacles to complete their [life cycles] and must contend with the immune system of the host in order to mature and reproduce.”

It Looks Like MofoPolitics.com Is Also Being Attacked by Clinton's Minions

For a while, this was the link to a decent article called: The Clintons' Greatest Shame: Chelsea Clinton Is the Biological Daughter of Webb Hubbell. Now it is suddenly gone.

Webmaster addition: You can read the story HERE. This has been known for a very long time. But WRH has a policy of hands-off of the families. No attacks on spouses and children, and while Webb being Chelsea's father reflects badly on Hillary, Chelsea obviously had nothing to do with the circumstances of her birth. That is why we never ran the report ourselves when we first learned of it years ago.

Stock Market Falls Dramatically As Fed “Backing Away From Easy-Money Policies”

Friday’s huge drop in the stock market is being attributed to market worries that the timeline for QE-free money is rapidly coming to an end, and that a rate hike could bring the economy screeching to a halt.

Stocks and bonds tumbled Friday, with the Dow industrials and S&P 500 posting their biggest percentage losses since the Brexit selloff... [due to] fresh signs that central banks could be backing away from easy-money policies

In terms of the political impact of monetary policy, Janet Yellen and the Federal Reserve don’t want to take a chance on unleashing a downturn that could boost Trump in response.

Facebook removes Norwegian Prime Minister's post after she wades into 'napalm girl' row

The Norweigan Prime Minister took on Facebook’s decision to delete an iconic image from the Vietnam war by sharing the image herself, before swiftly finding her post had been taken down as well.

On Friday, the country’s largest newspaper, Aftenposten, led with a front-page open letter by its editor Espen Egil Hansen who accused Mark Zuckerberg of “abusing power” by censoring the post. The letter came after the daily paper published a story leading with the 1972 Pulitzer-prize winning photo of nine-year-old Kim Phuc running terrified after being hit with napalm in the Vietnam war.

Sep 09 09:59

"Dear Mark Zuckerberg. No, I Will Not Remove This Picture..."

Dear Mark Zuckerberg.

I follow you on Facebook, but you don’t know me. I am editor-in-chief of the Norwegian daily newspaper Aftenposten. I am writing this letter to inform you that I shall not comply with your requirement to remove a documentary photography from the Vietnam war made by Nick Ut.

Not today, and not in the future.

The demand that we remove the picture came in an e-mail from Facebook’s office in Hamburg this Wednesday morning. Less than 24 hours after the e-mail was sent, and before I had time to give my response, you intervened yourselves and deleted the article as well as the image from Aftenposten’s Facebook page.

To be honest, I have no illusions that you will read this letter. The reason why I will still make this attempt, is that I am upset, disappointed – well, in fact even afraid - of what you are about to do to a mainstay of our democratic society.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the New Amerika, Mr. Hansen; where dictatorship, and the shunning of any narrative, other than that of the official story, are the rules of the game.

I am quite sure that thinking Americans, and Europeans, who do not want their views censored will find other platforms than "Wastebook", where the forums are free from these kinds of strictures, and enabling of intelligent on line conversations.

9/11 – The Art Of Blaming Others – Isn’t 15 Years Of The Dick And Don Psyop Enough?

Fifteen years later humanity is certainly much more politically awakened. The world is packed with information. Access to that information is easier now more than ever and knowledge of the world we live in is spreading faster than ever. All of these developments and realities also present a problem for the ruling elite which to this day is still protecting the 9/11 “official” story. And if indeed we have fifteen more years of disinformation ahead of us, then shouldn’t we do our best to confront the tactics that so far have made us all look the other way when looking to assign blame for the event? In fact, for fifteen years we’ve been told that no one should dare to blame our government or blame anyone in particular until we have all the facts, unless of course you blame Bin Laden and al-Qaeda. Put another way, blaming the US government for 9/11 is considered almost blasphemous today. The masses have been conditioned to not question who actually did 9/11.

Swedish companies will be fined if they don't have enough women on their boards

THE SWEDISH GOVERNMENT is drafting a law that could lead to fines for listed companies which fail to allot at least 40% of their board seats to women, Industry Minister Mikael Damberg said.

Leaked Memo: George Soros Foundation Seeking to Expand U.S. Online Voting

George Soros’s Open Society Foundations is seeking to expand the use of electronic and online voting systems nationwide, according to a leaked Foundations document reviewed by Breitbart News.
While the directive was issued two years ago, the issue of electronic voting has become a hot button topic in this year’s presidential election amid fears digital voting systems can be compromised.

The online voting plan was contained in a 67-page hacked file detailing the September 29-30, 2014 Open Society U.S. Programs board meeting in New York.

A significant portion of the board meeting was dedicated to methods the Foundation’s U.S. Programs (USP) could use to further the use of President Obama’s executive action authority to bypass Congress during Obama’s final two years in office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Soros has already proven, incontrovertibly, that he will do ANYTHING to forward his agenda, no matter how crooked.

And looking at the fact that certain governmental offices and officials, and corporations have been hacked, and the growth of ransomeware of late, you can guarantee that hacking of on-line votes will be tweaked to present Soros with an appropriate mandate with which to proceed on what he is doing.

Paper ballots, coupled with a very easily obtained ID, are the best weapons with which to fight voter fraud, period, end of discussion.

The Unspoken War on Yemen, Anglo-American Crimes against Humanity, U.N. and Media Silence, Complicity of “The International Community”, Destruction of an Entire Country…

On Tuesday 6th of September, twenty-four hour monitoring by Yemen’s Legal Centre for Rights and Development (LCRD) recorded the bombings by the Saudi led “coalition”, armed by the US and UK and advised by their military specialists, thus collusion and co-operation of both countries render them equally culpable for the carnage.

Yemen has a population of just 24.41 million (2013 figure) and according to the Rural Poverty Portal:

“ … is one of the driest, poorest and least developed countries in the world. It ranks 140 out of 182 countries on the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Index (2009). An estimated 42 percent of the people are poor, and one Yemeni in five is malnourished. Poverty is endemic, particularly in more remote and less accessible areas.”

In the one day and night period covered here, attacked were the capital Sana’a and Sa’dah, Marib, AlJawf, Hajjah, Hodeidah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Americans, your country, and the UK, are complicit and enablers in the war crimes of the Saudi Government, the House of Saud, and the Saudi Military.

The Yemeni people's crime in all this?!?

Having thrown off a brutal dictator, the US sponsored and anointed Al-Hadi, and replaced his government with that of the Houthi rebels.

The Saudis are killing innocent civilians, including children; they are blowing up hospitals, schools, private residences, and market places in order to cow the Yemeni people into submission.

These acts are war crimes.

But this military campaign was supposed to end quickly; and after 18 months, the Yemeni people show absolutely no signs of backing down from this Saudi military onslaught.

So, I have to wonder what the UK and the US are going to offer the Saudis in terms of new weaponry; perhaps, since the US has blocked the transfer of cluster bombs to the Saudi military, will the UK fill in the gap?!? More air to air missiles?!? Perhaps a tactical nuke or two?!?

I am most certain that the US and UK have many more goodies for their defense industries to offer the Saudi military; it's just a question of the price.

But I would really like for you to see just what these airstrikes are accomplishing; they are accomplishing this, and I warn you, this is an horrifically graphic image:

At least 10 children killed in Saudi airstrike in Yemen

I do hope this image burns in your memory for a very, very long time, because henceforward, you cannot say, "I didn't know the US government was doing in Yemen with it's military partner, Saudi Arabia."

So, this is the bottom line of what the US and UK are doing by enabling this Saudi war against Yemen; the assassinations of innocent civilians, including children, from the sky, with bombing runs.

Please take a good, hard look at these tiny dead bodies for a moment, and yes, I know, if you have any compassion at all, this is very hard; then, imagine, for one brief moment, that they had been your kids.

And, understandably, not a word from the American presstitutes and whoresspondents on these extrajudicial assassinations.

The airwaves, and the net, are filled with mindless distractions, digital heroin, if you will, to keep people from focusing on what is going on the real world; and while you have been distracted, the US and UK continue to be the Merchants of Death to realms which routinely suppress their own populations, and commit war on others.

The United States of Amerika is now a proud sponsor of war crimes: I never, growing up, thought that I would actually see this come true, but it has.

This is terrible, horrific truth with which to have to live; but what I can do is bear peaceful, Christian witness to the crimes of this government, and hopefully, to get the American people to awaken to them.

US Denies Entry to Ex-UK Ambassador Who Is Critical of US Foreign Policy

The United States over the weekend denied travel to a former British ambassador, Craig Murray, who was also a British diplomat for some 30 years, and is the author of several books.

Murray has stood twice for election to the House of Commons. He was “honored” by being thrown out of Uzbekistan by its repressive government after risking his life to expose appalling human rights abuses there. He is not a terrorist and is not a social media jihadi. He has no criminal record, no connection to drug smuggling, and does have a return ticket, a hotel reservation and ample funds to cover his expenses.

He is however seen as a threat to the United States.

Ambassador Murray was headed to the U.S. this week to be Master of Ceremonies at an award ceremony honoring John Kiriakou, the CIA torture whistleblower. Kiriakou was the only US government official to go to jail in connection with the torture program, and all he did was help expose it to the media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of governmental behaviour one expects of petulant, childish dictatorships, where the mere whisper of a narrative which might not be to the government's liking, is slammed down hard.

That's precisely what the US government did to Murray here, and that is what this country has become, courtesy of the last several administrations; a "soft" dictatorship, but a dictatorship, none the less.

"Welcome to Amerika, folks: your papers, PLEASE!!"

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsSaudi Airstrikes Kill Nine Civilians in Yemeni Capital, Including Four Children

This latest strike killed at least nine civilians, including four children, while five other civilians who were within were wounded. It is unclear if this is all of the casualties, as all indications are that the workers are still trying to comb through the wreckage.

Saudi officials didn’t comment directly on the issue but did say they are “checking the report.” This is unusual in itself, as generally Saudi officials offer blanket denials when their airstrikes hit obvious civilian targets. It is unlikely, however, that any official Saudi report will ever be made public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, the killing of civilians and children is perfectly OK with us, as long as Saudi Arabia gets the Houthis out, and re-instates our old buddy, Al-Hadi" - official White House Souse.

There should be a plaque on Obama's desk right now, reading: "The United States of America; a proud partner in war crimes!!!"

America imprisons more people than any other country in history, in both absolute and relative terms. American prisoners -- disproportionately racialized and poor people -- are held in inhumane conditions that include long periods of solitary confinement, in violation of international protocols against torture.

Tomorrow, September 9, prisoners across America will stage the largest prisoners' strike in American history. Companies like Boeing, Starbucks and Victoria's Secret, which rely on coerced labor from prisoners, will not get any manufacturing out of American prisoners tomorrow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am willing to bet you one plugged Turkish piaster that there will be absolutely zero corporate coverage on this, so I wonder how prison guards are going to react.

Will they use cattle prods?!? Tear gas?!? Rubber Bullets?!? Billy clubs?!?

I would like to hope that some of the independent media will get out to cover this, because conscripted prison labor is one of the big, ugly secrets of American society which needs to get discussed in this country, but doesn't.

The classical Greek democracy was built on the backs of slaves; there is little different about the slavery into which poor, marginalized Americans are pressed through prison labor, because they can't afford a lawyer who can get them off scott free, as happened in the original OJ Simpson trial for the murder of his ex-wife and her boyfriend.

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple has activated the North Dakota National Guard ahead of a federal judge’s expected Friday ruling on a request by the Standing Rock Sioux to stop the four-state Dakota Access oil pipeline. While Dalrymple claims the measure is meant to ensure public safety, the reality is that the state intends to use the Guard to assist in denying access to the protest camps in the event that the federal court rules against the tribe. With the protest camps at one point swelling to over a reported 4,000 individual, the state is attempting to employ a denial of access strategy in the event that it grows in the wake of the expected federal court ruling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not the first time that the First Peoples of this country have been thrown under the proverbial bus, but it is perhaps one of the most blatant.

I am very doubtful that U.S. District Judge James Boasberg is going to rule in favor of the tribe; I wish I could say otherwise, but the huge amount of money involved in this project is not just talking at this point; it is screaming.

And I would very much like to remind Gov. Dalrymple; the South Dakota National Guard; and the security agencies present (which have allowed guard dogs to attack children) that the entire world will be watching here.

Facebook slammed for censoring iconic Vietnam War photo

The editor of a top Norwegian newspaper on Thursday addressed an open letter to Zuckerberg saying he was "upset, disappointed -- well, in fact even afraid" about Facebook's impact on media freedom.

Espen Egil Hansen said his newspaper, Aftenposten, received a demand from Facebook to remove the iconic Vietnam War photo of a naked girl fleeing a napalm attack.

"Less than 24 hours after the email was sent, and before I had time to give my response, you intervened yourselves and deleted the article as well as the image from Aftenposten's Facebook page," Hansen wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The attempts to censor the internet are now in full view!

Sep 09 06:48


Do you remember when our politicians promised to do something about the “too big to fail” banks?

Well, they didn’t, and now the chickens are coming home to roost. On Thursday, it was announced that one of those “too big to fail” banks, Wells Fargo, has been slapped with 185 million dollars in penalties. It turns out that for years their employees had been opening millions of bank and credit card accounts for customers without even telling them. The goal was to meet sales goals, and customers were hit by surprise fees that they never intended to pay. Some employees actually created false email addresses and false PIN numbers to sign customers up for accounts. It was fraud on a scale that is hard to imagine, and now Wells Fargo finds itself embroiled in a major crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't count on it; I am not holding my breath here.

And if employees felt that these nefarious practices were absolutely OK to do, someone at WELLS FARGO told them that this was perfectly acceptable behaviour.

At this point, the entire Executive Team and Board of Directors should be collectively be tried for fraud, convicted, and spend jail time, NOT in a Club Fed.

This will probably discourage similar behaviour by other banks.

Back At Great Depression Levels: “Millions Of Strong Young Men Just Sitting Around”

Why are so many men in their prime working years unemployed? The Obama administration would have us believe that unemployment is low in this country, but that is not true at all. In fact, one author quoted by NPR says that “it’s kind of worse than it was in the depression in 1940?. Most Americans don’t realize this, but more men from ages 25 to 54 are “inactive” right now than was the case during the last recession. We have millions upon millions of strong young men just sitting around doing nothing. They aren’t employed and they aren’t considered to be looking for employment either, and so they don’t show up in the official unemployment numbers. But they don’t have jobs, and nothing the Obama administration does can eliminate that fact.

It Won’t Be Long Now… The end game of central banking is nigh….

The impending global deflation and recession will prove that 93 months of ZIRP and $3.5 trillion of QE have been a complete failure. But this insufferable Keynesian snake oil peddler has the gall to claim a roaring success moments before the greatest monetary catastrophe in recorded history begins its inexorable implosion. The endgame of Keynesian central banking is indeed nigh. The outright lunacy of Draghi, Kuroda and Fischer are more than ample warning.

1950 to 2010: Not One Mass Public Shooting Where Citizens Could Be Armed

In other words, gun-free zones or gun-restricted zones were the targets of choice. This flies in the face of the 21st-century gun control movement’s claims that gun-free zones do not endanger innocents. It exposes the fallacy of arguments that present attackers as uninterested parties who choose a target by chance, never taking into account whether that target contains people who can shoot back.

“It is in Clinton’s implicit admission that the next president must begin the work of repairing the damage done to geopolitical stability and American preeminence by Barack Obama that has them in a tizzy. But that’s not neoconservatism; it’s not even ideological. It is simply reality.” Further: “The left isn’t just furious at Clinton for failing to denounce her neo-conservative endorsers; they’re aggravated by the fact that she’s undermining Barack Obama’s legacy.”

FBI Internal Fighting Over Hillary

It is apparent that some in FBI management blindly followed what they were told to do — exonerate Hillary Clinton. There is no other explanation for the FBI’s failure from the outset to use ordinary law enforcement tools available to it. Yet some in the FBI are not professionally satisfied by this outcome. They know that a strong case for prosecution and for guilt is being ignored for political reasons. What else do they know?

New York Times and the New McCarthyism

Traditional U.S. journalism and the American people are facing a crisis as the preeminent American newspaper, The New York Times, has fully lost its professional bearings, transforming itself into a neoconservative propaganda sheet eager for a New Cold War with Russia and imposing a New McCarthyism on public debate.

The crisis is particularly acute because another top national newspaper, The Washington Post, is also deeply inside the neocon camp.

The Times’ abandonment of journalistic principles has become most noticeable with its recurring tirades about Russia, as the Times offers up story after story that would have embarrassed Sen. Joe McCarthy and his 1950s Red-baiters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why people are flocking to the independent media, and shunning the presstitutes and whoreespondents as though they were the plague.

After the corporate media got dutifully on the bandwagon to flog Bush's outlandish lie that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, in order to "sell" the American people on the war against Iraq, these corporate media outlets have ceased to have any credibility whatsoever.

The magnates who own these institutions need to be collectively sued out of existence for lying, and die a paupers' death.

Obama Offered Saudis Over $115 Billion in Arms Deals

The new report from the Center for International Policy is revealing that over the course of his term in office, President Obama has offered Saudi Arabia over $115 billion in arms and other military equipment in 42 separate deals, by far the most of any US administration.

The data from the report came from the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, a Pentagon body that provides figures on international military sales. Most of the deals were ultimately approved, and large amounts of the weapons are still to be delivered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid growing up, I could never imagine a plaque on our President's desk, stating "United States of America: A Proud Partner in War Crimes"; yet, this is what we have become, in the 20th and 21st century.

The last administration, and the current one, has made this country the nation of grotesque wars of aggression and extrajudicial assassinations.

All I can think of right now is the Biblical injunction, "That which you sow, you shall also reap."; and right now, we are reaping the whirlwind in Yemen and beyond, with our military misadventures in the Middle East.

The US government has enabled the Saudis through this weaponry, and "guidance", to commit war crimes of the highest magnitude. The Saudi military has gunned down innocent civilians; destroyed schools and hospitals; and they have used US-purchased cluster bombs against civilians.

Yemen: Saudis Using US Cluster Munitions

It was only after this was made public by Human Rights Watch that the US blocked the transfer of such weapons at the end of May of this year.

But I want you to see just what this "enabling" has produced in this Saudi carnage in Yemen. After all, as a responsible American citizen, you have the right to know what American foreign policy is "reaping" in the Middle East, right?!?

Arms trade with Saudi fuels Yemen

At least ten children have been killed and almost thirty injured in north-western Yemen, Doctors Without Borders said after a reported airstrike on a religious school.

Saudi Arabia Killed Nearly 100 people with American bombs

Yemen conflict takes devastating toll on children

And why?!? Because the Yemenite people "had the gall" to get rid of their US-anointed dictator al-Hadi through a revolution by the Houthi rebels; and of course, the American government couldn't tolerate that. Neither could Yemen's neighbor, Saudi Arabia, which is struggling with its own pockets of revolt, coupled with severe economic difficulties, since the oil price drop.

So, a decision was made by the US and Saudi governments that a war against Yemen would be conducted, to swiftly wrest control of the country from the Houthi rebels to the control of the Al-Hadi government.

Remember that phrase, "It sounded like a good idea at the time"?!?

18 months on, the Saudis are still unable to control the country, and the suffering of the Yemenite people has been unspeakably brutal, courtesy of the war crimes committed by the US-enabled Saudi military.

CIA Chief Doubts Syria and Iraq ‘Can Be Put Back Together Again’

Speaking in an interview with the CTC Sentinel, CIA Director John Brennan expressed doubt about the viability of either Iraq or Syria as united nations in the near-term, saying he doubts whether either nation can be put back together in his lifetime.

Brennan has made similar comments in the past with respect to Syria, doubting that after so many years of civil war the country can return to a completely united single state, despite this being the stated policy goal of the US. This is the first time Brennan has made similar comments toward Iraq.

In both cases, as Brennan noted, there has been substantial bloodletting, and the wars have left massive amounts of sectarian tensions. He doubted whether a central government in either nation could ever really “govern fairly” on a national basis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it deliciously ironic that Brennan is championing (without coming out and using the word) the balkanization of Iraq and Syria; these are goals the Israeli government has had for a long time for both nations, and it looks as though this part of Israel's "to do"list in the Middle East may be on the way to getting realized, thanks to Brennan's "easing the way" with his statements.

Such a balkanization/redraw of the Middle East would make the resulting areas smaller, less defensible, and easier to control, geopolitically.

US Defense Secretary Slams Russia for ‘Eroding International Order’

US officials have been coming up with excuses for military confrontation with Russia for some time now, and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter seems to be the latest beating that increasingly tired war-drum, declaring Russia both a threat to “collective security” and of plotting to erode “international order.”

Carter’s complaints, like so many others in recent months, centered around supposition and allegations, claiming that Russia’s support for the Syrian government means they are “prolonging” the war, and similarly making the conflict “more dangerous.”

Carter even played up the dubious allegations of Russia trying to “hack the election,” even though the comments come just a couple of days after intelligence officials were conceding that there was no real evidence to support these claims, insisting the US would not tolerate Russia’s “attempts to interfere with our democratic processes.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Ash Carter; sir, the language of diplomacy should contain logic, weight, elegance, and power.

This Russia-bashing, in which you have so petulantly and childishly indulged, has absolutely none of that; in fact, these Russiophobic fantasies you have conjured sound like desperation on the cusp of madness.

But you must understand that because Americans were lied to about "Saddam Hussein's weapons of Mass Destruction" to sell them the Iraq war, you have a war-weary, war-skeptical nation which ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT be sold codswallop about Russia being the "bad guy", when it is the US military continuing to surround Russia with troops and arms in Eastern Europe.

Of course, if the White House and DNC numbers show that Donald Trump will win this upcoming Presidential election in a landslide, this administration is certainly not above beginning a war with Russia and/or China with which to "gift" Donald Trump even before he takes the Oath of Office in January, is it?!?

Forgive my cynicism, Sec Def Carter, but this administration has completely earned it!

Were President Obama to come back to Oahu for a visit, knock on my door, and tell me the sun was shining, I would be morally obligated to walk outside and see for myself.

In Laos, Obama Repeatedly Calls Americans ‘Lazy’

During a townhall meeting in Laos, President Barack Obama called Americans “lazy” multiple times.

For one, Obama said Americans’ reluctance to embrace his favored environmental policies is a sign of laziness.

“Usually when you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because it’s necessary for development,” Obama said. “It’s usually because we’re being lazy and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, more sustainable way.”

He also accused Americans of being isolated and ignorant because the United States is such a big country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How dare you, Mr. President?!?

And as an entrepreneur, this blogger has a very keen sense of what a 12 hour work day feels like.

Lazy, my ASTROLABE!!

And as to your characterisation of Americans not embracing your "...favored environmental policies is a sign of laziness." They do not embrace these policies because they understand that these policies are based on junk science.

This is all about mandating a carbon tax, which will do absolutely nothing to allegedly "saving the environment", because your failed Obamacare didn't raise the kind of money your administration thought it would.

Global warming and cooling depend primarily on the sun, and not human activity. Yes, we need to recycle, and be conscious residents of Planet Earth, but Mr. President, how, please, do you propose to control the sun?!?

And, in confirmation of this fact, as reported in no less prestigious a publication than astronomynow.com:

he arrival of intense cold similar to the one that raged during the “Little Ice Age”, which froze the world during the 17th century and in the beginning of the 18th century, is expected in the years 2030—2040. These conclusions were presented by Professor V. Zharkova (Northumbria University) during the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno in Wales by the international group of scientists, which also includes Dr Helen Popova of the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics and of the Faculty of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Professor Simon Shepherd of Bradford University and Dr Sergei Zharkov of Hull University. It is known that the Sun has its own magnetic field, the amplitude and spatial configuration of which vary with time. The formation and decay of strong magnetic fields in the solar atmosphere results in the changes of electromagnetic radiation from the Sun, of the intensity of plasma flows coming from the Sun, and the number of sunspots on the Sun’s surface. The study of changes in the number of sunspots on the Sun’s surface has a cyclic structure vary in every 11 years that is also imposed on the Earth environment as the analysis of carbon-14, beryllium-10 and other isotopes in glaciers and in the trees showed.

There have been very few times in American history when this country was governed by someone with so much open, bilious contempt of the people they governed; and right now, Mr. President, you are the absolute winner in this category.

Thanks to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings thoughtful decision to release an email exchange between former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton, we can now confirm that Hillary was well aware of the lack of security and the "real danger" before she made the decision to use a private email server.

In what we are sure was a selfless act of honesty by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform publicly released an email exchange in which former Secretary of State Colin Powell advised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the use of personal email two days after she was sworn in as Secretary...

Government campaigns of intimidation - like the wars on drugs, terror, and poverty - have been used to extort the public for decades. Despite the previous failures of institutional “wars,” a new war on cash is being waged that threatens freedom in a more subversive way than ever before.

Banks and governments around the world are cracking down on the use of paper money, and in turn, eliminating any anonymity left in the current system. Through strict rules on cash transactions and civil asset forfeiture laws, for example, the system has already instituted penalties for using cash. But as payments evolve into a purely digital network, the consequences of this new paradigm are being brought into the spotlight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cash and precious metals will always be available to the elite and the criminal elements globally; but they need to be kept available for the rest of us honest, hard-working people as well.

Honorable people can choose to use cash, rather than credit or debit cards; and that is what we do.

That the banks have messed up so badly that they are even considering forbidding cash is not our problem; it is their problem!!

As if the world couldn’t get any crazier, the committee in charge of nominating prospective recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize has recently nominated a terrorist organization for the award. The White Helmets, the notorious mop-up wing of Nusra (Jobhat al-Nusra or Jobhat Fatah al-Sham) will now be in the running for not only the cash prize that comes with winning the Nobel but also the undeserved and cult-like appreciation of winners as if, in some parallel universe, the award was actually given to people who promote peace.[1]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Nobel Prize has become a joke ever since Kissinger received the award; it is now irrelevant, and has no significance whatsoever.

Hillary at Commander-in-Chief Forum: Gun Control Part of Fight Against Terrorism

During MSNBC’s September 7 Commander-in-Chief Forum, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested more gun control is part of the fight against terror attacks in the United States.

She did this after forum host Matt Lauer brought up “terror attacks on our soil.”

Clinton then said that “here, at home, for goodness sakes, we have to finally pass a law prohibiting people on the terrorist watch list from being able to guy a gun in the United States of America.” This is a reference to the “no fly, no buy” law that Democrats have been pushing since the December 2 San Bernardino terror attack, although neither of the San Bernardino attackers were on any kind of list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An unarmed populace is a defenseless populace, which is the wet dream of every tyrannical government.

And I would like to suggest that the tyrannical nature of a future Clinton presidency will know no bounds, from starting wars,financial corruption/pay to play; re-instating the draft for both men and women, as well as instituting a policy of extrajudicial assassinations right here at home (that would be logical for a President with a dead bodies list, right?!?)

The Clinton Dead Bodies List

And I would like to politely point out to Mrs.Clinton that, had someone been at the Orlando night club, or the San Bernadino state offices, carrying concealed, the shooters could have been stopped in their tracks. The government and law enforcement agencies were completely, thoroughly impotent to stop both of these tragic events

Good News for the People of Europe: The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) Is Dead. Negotiations have Failed.

The German Minister of Economy and Vice-Chancellor, Mr. Sigmar Gabriel, a few days ago has declared that the European Union should not submit to the demands of the United States, referring to the negotiations on the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investments Partnership). He said the negotiations failed. By saying so, he joined French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, as well as French Secretary of State for External Trade, Mr. Matthias Fekl.

Negotiations started in 2013. After 14 ‘rounds’ of talks dealing with 27 points, no agreement has been reached, none whatsoever, leading to the conclusion that the deal is dead. Even though Mme. Merkel defended the treaty with all her heart up to the end of July 2016, both Germany and France now request a definite end to the negotiations.

UN says Austria risks breaking 'taboo' on refugees

The UN refugee agency has warned that Austria is in danger of breaking a decades-old tradition of helping those in need, after Vienna moved a step closer to potentially shutting its borders to migrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently the UN, which has championed the "cause" of human-caused global warming, doesn't understand how much heat is generated moving the entire human population around the planet! :)

A Plea to Those Still Dependant Upon the Banking System, by G.S.

Recently, I discovered the last local bank in the area is being bought by a bank with eight times more exposure to derivatives. As I attempted to explain the dangers of this increased exposure to my family one evening, I realized my father may have more than the current FDIC insured limit stashed in this one bank.

In an attempt to make the case for him to at least spread out his savings, I have been researching the many reasons he should consider changing where his money is kept. I believe it is important for everyone to recognize the danger associated with having too much money in the banks, as well as the even greater danger of having it all in one bank.

If You Have Money in a US Bank Account Be Aware!

The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 is better known as “The Dodd-Frank Act” to the American public. What the American public does not know about, is that it codifies a “bail-in” provision that ensures that the United States can conduct the type of bail-in that we saw in Cyprus.

The bank bailouts of 2008 and 2009 will now be history as Dodd-Frank authorizes the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to recapitalize failed financial institutions by confiscating customers’ deposits.

A bail-in takes place before a bankruptcy under current regulations, regulators would have the power to impose losses on bank depositors while leaving other creditors of similar stature, such as derivatives counter-parties untouched. If your bank goes bust then your deposits/savings will be taken from you and turned into shares of the bank. You have no say in the matter because in legal terms, as a bank depositor, you are just an unsecured creditor of the bank.

(NZ)Protestors could be charged as terrorists under law change, Law Society warns

Legitimate protestors could be charged as terrorists under new legislation unless changes are made, the NZ Law Society says.

New Zealand's history of protest at sea, including against the visit of US nuclear vessels during the 1970s and 1980s, was cited during submissions on the law change today.

Parliament is considering legislation that will bring New Zealand up to date with current international rules about maritime security.

It will create new offences related to maritime terrorism and maritime boarding.

But there are concerns that the law change could be used to stifle protest at sea because the definition of what is terrorism is too broad.

Jonathan Orpin of the NZ Law Society appeared before Parliament's Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade committee today and argued for the terrorism definition to be tightened.

The current definition is to carry out or to threaten acts with the purpose of intimidating a population or to compel a government or organisation.

If Donald Trump Wins US Election, Will Hillary Clinton Nullify Results Because Of Vladimir Putin?

Call it “Plan B”…It’s all being laid out, right at our feet . On Google and Facebook, during US late night shows, through CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and New York Times.

It will be the final death of whatever was left of American democracy.

The test run was accomplished with few casualties during the Democratic primaries, where Hillary Clinton and the DNC assured victory by rigging the entire voting process.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz lost her job as DNC Chair, but found a better job with the Clinton Campaign, and then won her Democratic primary Congressional District in Florida with little difficulty.

Bernie Sanders, who had the election stolen right from under his feet, fell quickly in line with his masters, and pathetically kissed Hillary’s ring in an embarrassing display of beta manhood.

Now we are all being prepared for the ultimate con. The Ocean’s Eleven of heists. The Presidency of the United States of America. The preparation is well underway.

Clinton Tells Trump to Shut Up on Federal Reserve

Desperate to change the narrative from her coughing fit, Hillary Clinton has come out swinging at Trump’s comments about how The Fed’s low interest rates have created an “artificially strong stock market,” exclaiming that presidents and candidates should not comment on Fed actions, showing he should not be president.

Weaponized' Populism from Wilders, Trump, Farage Turning 'Into Colossal Violence'

The United Nations' high commissioner for human rights blasted nationalist populists like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage for using "tactics similar" to ISIS to frighten and reel in followers.

"The proposition of recovering a supposedly perfect past is fiction; its merchants are cheats," Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said Monday. "Clever cheats."

Speaking at the Peace, Justice and Security Foundation gala in The Hague, Zeid -- a Jordanian prince married to an American from Texas, global maternal health activist Sarah Butler -- singled out Dutch politician Geert Wilders and "the populists, demagogues and political fantasists" like him.

The commissioner acknowledged he "must be a sort of nightmare" to these populists as he defends the rights of asylum seekers, gays, women and the disabled while being a Muslim "who is, confusingly to racists, also white-skinned; whose mother is European and father, Arab."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I deeply respect this man's humanitarianism, and his desire to see justice for all; in fact, if he were ever on Oahu, I would definitely invite him over for tea!

But he needs to be aware of the practical necessities for accommodating a mass movement of immigrants, and making sure, at least here in the US, that they are truly ready to culturally assimilate, and be a positive force in their communities.

I have met some really outstanding Muslim men when I was marketing for an Architectural firm in greater Los Angeles, and understand that they came here for the same reasons my ancestors did; to be able to practice their religion in peace; to be able to speak their minds freely, without fear of recrimination; to work, honestly, and to obtain the best educations and outcomes for their kids that were possible.

To these kinds of immigrants, I say...welcome to this country, from the bottom of my heart.

But to put it simply, the big, fat, ugly, underlying issues which has to be addressed here are these damnable, endless wars, which the US government is very adept at starting, but not so good at finishing.

And the tragedy here is, the US government and military are still fighting these unwinnable wars (think: Afghanistan) because they cannot even begin to think about what a graceful exit would look like.

If there were true peace in the countries we have attacked, and most probably will attack in the near future, people would want to stay at home, and fulfill their destinies there; unfortunately, the US government has made that nearly impossible in places like Libya; Somalia; Yemen; Afghanistan; Iraq; and Syria.

Dutch ex-PM calls visiting Netanyahu ‘war criminal’ amid anti-Israeli protests in The Hague

Instead of rolling out a welcome mat for Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu, who kickstarted his visit to the Netherlands on Tuesday amid huge pro-Palestine protests, the Dutch should “send him right away to the International Criminal Court,” Dries Van Agt said.
Ahead of Netanyahu’s two-day visit to the country, Van Agt, who served as Dutch PM from 1977 to 1982, labelled the Israeli leader a “war criminal” in an televised interview with the NPO1 national TV channel on Monday.

Janet Yellen Is Choosing the President: Rate Hike Would “Give Trump the White House”

The next president is not being determined by voters, but by the elite.

While Obama has repeatedly touted the sub-5.0% unemployment rate (4.9% most recently) as confirmation his “economic recovery” has been successful, what has received far less media attention has been the unprecedented surge in Americans no longer in the labor force, which as of August stood at a near-record 94.4 million

And while the traditional response by economic apologists and the media has been that this number is the result of a demographic change in US society, with mostly older workers no longer in the labor pool, we have over the years argued that that is misleading, and that millions of prime-aged workers have fallen out as a result of drastic changes to America’s job market, coupled with structural lack of demand for legacy jobs, which has – for example – sent the number of employed waiters and bartenders to all time highs even as the number of manufacturing workers is lower than it was in December 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama lies about the real rate of unemployment just as he lies about everything else.

His alleged "economic recovery" has only been for the 1%, who are already fabulously wealthy.

The Saturday attacks on Native-Americans who are protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) gained national attention in social media over the weekend, spurring an outcry for justice. As a result, many citizens have demanded the identity of the privately hired security forces who attacked unarmed citizens – including a child and pregnant woman – be exposed, and through the collaboration of the online community, that’s exactly what happened.

Ashley Nicole Welch, the woman pictured in the photo above, has bore much of the brunt of people’s anger as she was the main aggressor among the hired security, according to witnesses. It appears she was the first to be exposed out of the group:

Citizens are now demanding that Welch and her accomplices be held accountable for their actions, preferably through legal means, however it has been commented that a peaceful public shaming is in order, as well. We here at Anonymous are happy to oblige.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please be aware that one child and 5 adults were bitten at these protests.

Protesters, Including Children, Mauled As Private Mercenaries Attack Native American Pipeline Protest

One has to wonder whether Ms. Welch, and Bob Frost, owner of Frost Kennels had done their internship at somewhere like Abu Ghraib.

Oh, and let's not forget the mercenary corps most likely running the show:

As reported today at blacklistednews.com:

G4S is one among several private security companies protecting the pipeline construction, a spokesperson told teleSUR. G4S, a U.K.-based security multinational, admitted to having personnel deployed at “remote sites” where Native Americans are defending their lands from the planned US$3.8-million Dakota Access pipeline that they say would pollute the drinking water of millions. The actions have brought together over 200 tribes in solidarity and faced a heavy offensive by private security companies and state officers deployed under a state of emergency. The security company has been under fire for providing services to Israeli prisons and settlements, expanding across the Middle East including Afghanistan and Iraq and operating juvenile detention centers and handling deportations from the U.S. In an email to teleSUR, G4S Communications Director Monica Lewman-Garcia wrote, “G4S Secure Solutions is providing fewer than 10 security officers, assigned to remote sites, providing limited short-term unarmed patrol services.” G4S recently published a new job opening for an armed custom protection security officer in Mandan, North Dakota—next to the campsites—which was reposted on Facebook by Lakota Sioux Tribe member Olowaan Plain. Lewman-Garcia said that “there are other names” of security companies but failed to name any others. She would not answer other questions and was not available to speak by phone. Organizers told teleSUR that 10-Code LLC, a local veteran-run company, is also providing security, but they were not able to be reached. A direct action to stop construction on Saturday ended in security deploying dogs, who bit six people including a pregnant woman and a child. The private security forces also maced 30 people, activists said. G4S officers “were not present and not involved at the location where the incident occurred,” wrote Lewman-Garcia.

At least, that is what they are alleging, for the moment.

Oh, and a little side note about G4S, as reported at mic.com:

Seriously, this place is massive. They are the second largest private employer of people behind Walmart. Let’s let that sink in for a minute. They employee some 625,000 people. They operate in over 125 countries. They gained some notoriety for holding what many called "Animal House" style parties in Kabul, Afghanistan. There was also that little problem with having Afghan drug lords on their payroll, whoops!

Children in Orlando, Florida as young as three may get a little Disney magic right at the entrance to the park, as they will now be required to have their fingers scanned, local media reports. The anti-fraud measure has been slammed as a violation of privacy on social media.

“Walt Disney World has begun requiring children from 3 to 9 years old to have their fingers scanned when they enter the theme parks, just like older kids and adults,” the Orlando Sentinel, the first to report on the measure, said.

According to the paper, this measure was introduced in order to “block the use of stolen and shared tickets.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I just have to wonder where the data goes once the kids' fingers have been scanned?

FBI? CIA? NSA? Pentagon? State Department?

Were I a parent, concerned about privacy violations, I would write a letter to Roger Iger, Disney's President, asking him politely about where the data goes after these kids' hands are scanned.

Because the "good reason" and the "real reason" for these scans, I would suspect, are worlds apart.

The corporation behind the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline also operates its own political action committee that has a record of donating to the campaigns of candidates who support the company’s pro-corporate, pro-fossil fuels agenda in Congress.

However, the political war chest of the Energy Transfer Partners PAC amounts to pennies compared to the wealth of Kelcy Warren, the chairman and CEO, who has spent millions becoming one of the most politically powerful oil tycoons in Texas.

“Unlike the federal system, here in the state of Texas, for state candidates, there are no limits on campaign contributions. We call it the Wild West of money in politics,” Andrew Wheat told MintPress News.

Wheat is the research director for Texans for Public Justice, an Austin-based nonprofit that tracks the influence of money and corporate power in Lone Star State politics, and he identified Warren as one of the state’s most influential donors.

It’s no secret that Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has great disdain for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Shortly before the Democratic National Convention, the activist released incriminating email showing that the DNC had worked against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in favor of a Clinton nomination.

Though that did much to shake up supporters of the American political system and infuriate supporters of Sanders, the Vermont Senator pledged his support to Clinton nonetheless. He cited that it was important to unify the party and prevent a Trump presidency. Rigged or not (and it’s most definitely rigged), is this truly the reason Bernie Sanders gave up the good fight?

According to Assange, Bernie Sanders was threatened. During an interview with Australian journalist John Pilger, who is based in the United Kingdom, Assange disclosed some very concerning information. Pilger, who is working on a documentary about Assange, asked:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these allegations prove true, this is standard operating Clinton Cartel behaviour.

Threats, harassment, blackmail, and sometimes even assassinations are their stock in trade, but never traceable back to them, specifically; such threats against Sanders, his family and friends, would have been normal Clinton behaviour.

Aerial Spraying for Zika Stirs Controversy in Miami Beach

Miami Beach City Commissioner Mike Grieco is very upset over the announcement and has called for a special meeting Wednesday to cancel the scheduled aerial spraying.

Grieco said the aerial assault on mosquitoes could be a threat to everyone.

"It's a neurotoxin. We don't know the risks. It's been outlawed in Europe since 2012. It's something that has not been used in Miami, historically," said Grieco.
According to a spokesperson for Mayor Gimenez, Naled, which is EPA approved, has been used in Miami-Dade County since the 1970's.

On Tuesday, county workers started spraying the streets of Miami Beach with a chemical called BTI using specialized trucks. The city announced its use of Buffalo Turbine trucks in its fight against the Zika virus in an email Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at nospray.com:

Long-term exposure also caused AChE inhibition; reduced AChE activity occurred in dogs exposed orally to 2 mg/kg per day for 1 year and in rats exposed orally to the same dose for 2 years. In addition, the long-term study with dogs found that doses of 2 mg/kg per day also caused mineralization of the spinal cord. Naled’s breakdown product dichlorvos inhibits the activity in rats of a nervous system enzyme called neuropathy target esterase. In experiments conducted by biochemists at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (India), doses of 6 mg/kg per day reduced the enzyme’s activity by about 40 percent. Inhibition of this enzyme causes partial paralysis of the hind legs followed by incoordination. Toxicity Caused by Breathing Naled Naled is more potent when exposure occurs through breathing than when exposure occurs through eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. Toxicologists at the University of California found that inhalation was 20 times more toxic to rats than oral dosing (dosing through the mouth) of naled. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) came to a similar conclusion based on tests submitted to the agency by naled’s manufacturer: the dose required to cause cholinesterase inhibition through inhalation exposure was less than 1/6 of the lowest oral dose causing the same effect. An additional study by the University of California researchers mentioned above found that small droplets of naled (the size produced by ultra low volume sprayers often used in mosquito spraying) were about four times more acutely toxic than larger droplets. Dibrom Concentrate (EPA Registration No. 5481-480) contains the inert ingredient aromatic hydrocarbon solvent (Chemical Abstract Services number 64742-94-5), also called solvent naphtha. This solvent contains two aromatic hydrocarbons, naphthalene and 1,2,4- trimethylbenzene. Dibrom 8 Emulsive (EPA Registration No. 5481-479) contains naphthalene. Dibrom 8 Miscible (EPA Registration No. 34704-351) contains solvents4 whose ingredients can include naphthalene and trimethylbenzene. Naphthalene has been classified by EPA as a possible human carcinogen because it caused lung tumors in mice following inhalation.

Any way you cut it, this is nasty stuff, and I am quite certain that the product manufacturers contribute to politicians heavily to make sure it does not get off the EPA-approved list of mosquito abatement chemicals.

How the TPP Special Court Crushes Domestic Laws and Plunders the Public

A secretive super-court system called ISDS is threatening to blow up President Barack Obama’s highest foreign policy priority.

Investor-state dispute settlement — an integral part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal — allows companies to sue entire countries for costing them money when laws or regulations change. Cases are decided by extrajudicial tribunals composed of three corporate lawyers. Buzzfeed, in a multi-part investigation launched Sunday, called it “the court that rules the world.”

Although the ISDS process has existed for years, TPP would drastically expand it. The most common criticisms of the system are that it’s secret, that it’s dominated by unaccountable big-firm lawyers, and that global corporations use it to change sovereign laws and undermine regulations. That’s all true.

But here’s what most of the coverage and the critics are missing.

Use of dogs at North Dakota pipeline protest criticized

Jonni Joyce of Martin, S.D., who has trained professional dogs since 1988, watched video from Saturday’s protest at the Dakota Access Pipeline site and called it “a dark day” for her industry. Some protesters reported being bitten by the dogs, and video from Democracy Now! shows a German shepherd with its mouth covered in blood.

“Taking bite dogs and putting them at the end of a leash to intimidate, threaten and prevent crime is not appropriate,” Joyce said. “It was absolutely appalling. … For a private corporation to utilize dogs in this fashion is reprehensible.”

A Dakota Access spokeswoman declined to comment Tuesday about security personnel or the use of dogs.

The Tyranny of 9/11: The Building Blocks of the American Police State from A-Z

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption, and abuse. The citizenry’s unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has resulted in a society where the nation is being locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.

A 20th Century History of Infringement (On Gun Rights)

It’s fashionable at present, to assert that the Second Amendment makes some allowance for “reasonable regulation” of the individual right to own and carry weapons, even though the word “regulate” carries a very different meaning today than it did in the 18th century. It does no such thing. Instead, it outlaws any “infringement” of that right, which means sneaking up on it and nibbling it away, a little bit at a time. Regulation is infringement, and no gun law of any kind is tolerable to a free people.

America’s Debt-Based Paper Economy Crumbling: “Manufacturing Cities In Advanced State of Decay”

You might be thinking that government jobs are “good jobs”, but the truth is that they don’t produce wealth. Government employees are really good at pushing paper around and telling other people what to do, but in most instances they don’t actually make anything. In order to have a sustainable economy, you have got to have people creating and producing things of value. A debt-based paper economy may seem to work for a while, but eventually the whole thing inevitably comes crashing down when faith in the paper is lost.

Campaign Claims Pollen Caused Hillary’s “Worst Coughing Fit Ever”… Despite a Clear Forecast

By now, everyone should know. Hillary is either too sick, or too evil to be trusted in another position of power, especially the highest office in the land. Clearly there is a cover-up (and much more) at work here. Strangely, despite having very “low energy” support among the actual American population, Hillary’s every flaw is covered up, blacked out or justified by the corporate media. There remains the clear suggestion that this is not an election, per se, at all, but something more like an arranged marriage between a tyrant and a population that has lost to the levers of control. Hillary isn’t the only one who needs a doctor; the country is in desperate need of care, but the only provider in the area is under Obamacare.

EmailGate and the Mystery of the Missing GAMMA

Last week’s Federal Bureau of Investigation release of materials relating to their investigation of Hillary Clinton has reignited the political firestorm surrounding EmailGate. How the Democratic nominee mishandled her emails while she was secretary of state is again front-page news, which is bad news for Hillary. Particularly because the FBI’s data dump demonstrates clearly that Clinton is either dumb or dishonest—and perhaps both.
