Cracks Emerge: Hillary Cancels Joint Campaign Events With Bernie After Leaked Recording

After Friday's latest leak, in which a recording of Hillary Clinton during a February fundraiser revealed disparaging commentary aimed at Millennials in general and Bernie Sanders supporters in particular in which Hillary said that Sanders supporters are harboring "false promises" and "are living in their parents’ basement" because "they don’t see much of a future" (supposedly after eight years under the Obama administration), Hillary tried to patch up the PR snafu, aware that she urgently needs the youth vote on her side.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Millenials have little faith in either candidate; but I hope that they understand that a vote for Hillary Clinton this year is a vote for more wars; more economic displacement, courtesy of offshoring/outsourcing; and a return to the draft, this time for women also.

Education Secretary John King: Homeschooled Students Not ‘Getting the Range of Options’ They Should

U.S. Secretary of Education John King says he is worried that homeschooled children aren’t “getting the range of options that are good for all kids,” a remark that is drawing strong reactions from homeschooling parents across the nation.
The Heritage Foundation’s Lindsey Burke provided Politico Pro’s (subscription only) report on King’s recent remarks to reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Burke writes at the Daily Signal:

King—although he conceded that there are homeschooling families who are doing well—told the audience he worries that homeschooled students aren’t “getting the range of options that are good for all kids.” According to Politico:

King said he worries that ‘students who are homeschooled are not getting kind of the rapid instructional experience they would get in school’—unless parents are “very intentional about it”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core has wrecked the educational system in this country, to the point where kids have a really hard time thinking critically, and in a solution oriented way; it has dumbed down the American student to the point where basic grammar, syntax, and basic math are no longer valued, or taught, in any meaningful way.

King should be very proud of himself for that.

Meanwhile, the US is completely behind the 8 ball in terms of educational achievement against many of the countries in the world, like Finland and South Korea; how in heaven's name are Americans going to compete internationally if they do not have the math and language skills to enable them to do that?!?

US Empire’s Interest in Afghanistan – It’s the Heroin, Stupid!

Afghanistan for all practical purposes continues to be occupied by foreigners; in this aspect Hekmatyar’s logic happens to mirror the Taliban’s logic – even though the successors of Mullah Omar won’t be admitted to the power table in Kabul.

A Western covert intel operative with knowledge of how Afghanistan was handled at the highest levels in Washington lays down the case:

Rising Tension between India and Pakistan. Military Escalation? Diplomacy at a Standstill

It was a day of quiet on the India-Pakistan front except for the sporadic gunfire exchanged between the two sides in the Akhnoor sector of the international border in Jammu and Kashmir.

On the other hand, it is a worrying sign to see no diplomatic efforts being taken up by both the sides to diffuse the tension. The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit to have been held in the Pakistan in November was cancelled after India boycotted the summit. The announcement came after Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangaladesh too boycotted the summit on Friday. Sri Lanka too had expressed its reservations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world, from Syria, to Pakistan and India, appear to be on the brink of global military confrontations, and where's the President of the United States, instead of doing the job he was hired to do in 2012?!?

Shilling for Hillary.

With the world damn near on fire, what a complete, utterly useless embarrassment he is for US citizens right now!!

The FBI’s Defense of How the Clinton Interview Was Conducted Is Full of Holes

In a nutshell, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department permitted Hillary Clinton’s aide Cheryl Mills — the subject of a criminal investigation, who had been given immunity from prosecution despite strong evidence that she had lied to investigators — to participate as a lawyer for Clinton, the principal subject of the same criminal investigation. This unheard-of accommodation was made in violation not only of rudimentary investigative protocols and attorney-ethics rules, but also of the federal criminal law.

Yet, the FBI and the Justice Department, the nation’s chief enforcers of the federal criminal law, tell us they were powerless to object.

Seriously?

The U.S. isn’t one of the top 10 most free countries in the world, study says

With costly healthcare, a stereotype of obesity and a culture of creatively fatty foods, “healthy” probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of the United States.

But according to the Legatum Prosperity Index’s findings for 2015, the U.S. is the healthiest country in the world. However, when it comes to freedom, an ideal most Americans pride themselves on, the U.S. falls to 15.

Israel Issues Orders to Intercept All-Women Gaza-Bound Flotilla

The Israeli occupation navy has received instructions to intercept women’s boat to Gaza and arrest onboard activists, Israeli daily Maariv reported Sunday.

The Israeli naval forces have received orders to intercept al-Zaytouna ship and arrest activists as soon as they reach Gaza shores.

The boat is reportedly to be towed to the Ashdod Harbor wile female activists will be deported to their mother countries after they sign pledges to never return.

Zaytouna ship is expected to reach Gaza shores in the next three days following a stopover in the Greek Island of Crete to fix a sudden breakdown.

Amal and Zaytouna, a flotilla of two boats with all-women crews and passengers, set sail from Barcelona en route to besieged Gaza in another maritime attempt to break Israel’s illegitimate blockade on the Palestinian coastal enclave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what the tactical plan is to actually get these women, or at least some of them, and supplies, into Gaza.

If captured, they will most probably be met with very rough physical treatment by the Israeli Navy, and some may be killed, as a lesson for future potential flotillas from around the world trying to break the siege of Gaza; that is just how the Israeli military mindset works.

Prayers for their collective physical safety, and that they will be documenting, and sending back images of how they are treated. If they have the technical capability, there is a computer chip which enables you to send camera images back to your computer, in blazingly fast time.

The US, France and Britain Scrap United Nations Diplomacy, Embrace Terrorism against the People of Syria…

When Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (“We the people of the United Nations, determined to save succeeding generations form the scourge of war …”) rose to speak at the UN to address Syria’s ongoing tragedy, on Sunday 25th September, US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, François Delattre, Permanent Representative for France and British Permanent Representative, Matthew Rycroft, metaphorically threw their toys out of the pram and walked out. Anything more infantile and further away from the UN’s founding aspirations would be hard to find.

They would have done well to hear Mr Churkin’s full address (1) it lays out home truths and the reality of international State sponsored terrorism – resulting in Syria’s living nightmare – in succinct detail. He began:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the US government is doing in Syria is an absolute abomination in the name of regime change, period, end of discussion.

Every bit of rhetoric spewed by US representatives, then faithfully regurgitated by the presstitutes, and whorespondents, is an absolute, and complete lie.

And just how soon do the folks in the bowels of power in DC want to see the US government and military at war with Russia over Syria, and think this is an absolutely grand idea?!?

This is a war the US military may well not win, because it doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia at this time.

I would very strongly caution those who want this war to think it all the way through (if that is even possible for our attention-deficit-disabled politicians); the results of such a war may well be both catastrophic...and irreversible.

Barbarism in Words and Deeds. Barbarism of U.S. Imperial Wars is Unmatched

Over the past decade and a half, the US and its allies have invaded, occupied, killed, wounded and dispossessed over ten million people, in countries from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Military and civilian officials have systematically destroyed entire economies, fostered ethno-religious wars, undermined ancient community and family ties and placed corrupt political puppets in power.

Promoted by the US, torture, arbitrary arrest and incarceration have become the norm creating lawless and chaotic societies, which had once been productive and stable. The shredding of social structures has provokes massive population flight, with millions of desperate refugees fleeing invasions, wars and total society breakdown. The result of these deliberate imperial policy decisions has been emptied cities and neighborhoods, broken families, destroyed lives and futures for many millions of young Arabs and Muslims.

On July 17, 2014, Ramsey Orta took out his mobile phone and filmed a police officer in New York killing his friend, Eric Garner. But as soon as he stopped recording, Orta says his own life also took a dramatic turn for the worse.

Viewed millions of times, Orta's clip shows Daniel Pantaleo, a white officer, gripping his arms around Garner's neck in a chokehold.

Garner, a black American, was 43 years old at the time, and an asthmatic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to Amerika; where African American males can get assassinated via asphyxiation by the cops for selling loose cigarettes, and the messenger who filmed the video of this travesty gets character-assassinated and sent to prison.

I have to wonder just how strong (and/or circumstantial) the evidence was which framed Orta for his alleged crime.

Hillary Clinton Never Met a War She Didn’t Want Other Americans to Fight

Of her belligerent record Trump observed: “Sometimes it seemed like there wasn’t a country in the Middle East that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to invade, intervene in, or topple.” Indeed, as he suggested, she is “trigger-happy and very unstable.” This is one of the most important reasons Americans face a terrorist threat. While she previously contended that “We need a real plan for confronting terrorists,” she apparently failed to recognize how bombing, invading, and occupying other nations, supporting murderous foreign rulers, intervening in other countries’ conflicts, and killing foreign peoples all create enemies around the globe, some of whom retaliate against U.S. civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the darling of the neocon warmongers, and the military industrial complex, her "legacy", should she steal/win this election, will be that of a state of perpetual war abroad, and the absolute and complete destruction of what is left of America's civil liberties.

Russia Warns US Attack on Syrian Troops Would Have ‘Terrible, Tectonic Consequences’

The Russia Foreign Ministry today issued a statement warning the United States against launching any attacks on the Syrian government, cautioning it would have “terrible, tectonic consequences” not just in Syria but also across the entire Middle East.

Since the collapse of the Syrian ceasefire about two weeks ago, the US has been railing against Russia and Syria, and threatening non-specific “non-diplomatic actions” against them, particularly in the city of Aleppo, where Syrian forces are fighting against the Nusra Front.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova in particular cautioned against a US-imposed regime change in Syria, saying it would quickly fill a new government with terrorists of all stripes. Russian officials have repeatedly criticized the US response after the ceasefire, arguing they’re overtly backing terrorist groups like Nusra, which is closely aligned with al-Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, the US government has essentially told the Russian government to do something "anatomically impossible" this last Saturday. As reported a Sputniknews.com

US-Backed Rebels Unleash Hundreds of Grad Missiles on Syria City of Hama (VIDEO)

The report went on to say: "The strike with the high-potency, low accuracy weapon was heralded by the militant group Ahrar al-Sham as an attack on government positions, but its targeting capabilities all but assure that civilians took the brunt of the assault.

So the question is, and I have to wonder just what odds Vegas bookies are taking on this, when do we see the moment where the US military is actually firing upon the Russian military in Syria, now that there is no coordination between the two, after the US violated the cease-fire on the 19th of last month?!?

Supreme Court Won’t Review Case Of Mentally Ill Man Who Was Tasered To Death

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday let stand a lower court’s ruling that police use of a Taser amounted to unconstitutional excessive force in a case involving a mentally ill man who died after being stunned with the electrical weapon five times in two minutes.

The justices declined to hear an appeal by the North Carolina village of Pinehurst of a January federal appeals court ruling that police can use a Taser only if officers are in immediate danger.

The village was sued by the family of Ronald Armstrong, a man with bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia who died in April 2011 after a confrontation with police.

The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the officers used excessive force in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tasers can kill, if they are administered at just the right point in the heart's rhythm cycle.

Apparently now, in light of the fact that the Supreme Court would not hear the case, cops can continue to kill with impunity.

COMPANY SUSPECTED OF BLAME IN OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT BREACH WILL HELP RUN NEW CLEARANCE AGENCY

In 2014, the US Office of Personnel Management was hacked (presumably by Chinese spies), and leaked 22,000,000+ records of Americans who'd applied for security clearance, handing over the most intimate, compromising details of their lives (the clearance process involves disclosing anything that could be used to blackmail you in the future). This didn't come to light until 2015.

It's still not clear how OPM got hacked, but signs point to a failure at one of its contractors, Keypoint Government Solutions, who appear to have lost control of their logins/passwords for sensitive OPM services.

In the wake of the hacks, the job of giving out security clearances has been given to a new government agency, the National Background Investigations Bureau.

NBIB is about to get started, and they've announced that they're contracting out significant operations to Keypoint. Neither Keypoint nor the NBIB would comment on this arrangement.

Minnesota Hiking Obamacare Premiums At Least 50% To Avoid ‘Collapse’

Minnesota will let health insurers increase their rates by at least 50 percent next year to protect the state’s Obamacare health insurance individual market from “collapse,” the state announced Friday.

The announcement came from Minnesota commerce commissioner Mike Rothman, who explained bluntly that the state’s individual market was barely staying afloat.

“The Commerce Department pursued every option within its power to avert a collapse this year,” said Rothman. “We succeeded in saving the market for 2017, with only Blue Cross leaving. But the rates insurers are charging will increase significantly to address their expected costs and the loss of federal reinsurance support.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight: do the people who cannot afford insurance after these stunning rate hikes just simply lose their health insurance, and then get penalized?!?

This absolutely should not be happening to Americans, and it bites, big-time.

THE CORRUPT CLINTON FOUNDATION YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF

Three months after leaving the White House in 2001, former President Bill Clinton arrived in India to cheering throngs to help those who had just lost a million homes in the aftermath of a massive earthquake that killed 20,000 and injured 166,000.

In classic Clinton style, he solemnly promised that his new nonprofit — called the American India Foundation (AIF) — would rebuild 100 villages. Rajat Gupta, his millionaire co-chairman, pledged $1 billion for the victims.

It never happened. Years later, AIF’s annual reports were reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation and show only seven villages were partially rebuilt by Clinton’s group, and a mere $2.7 million of $53 million raised over a decade went to the earthquake victims.

THE SHEER NUMBER OF AIF EXECUTIVES WHO RAN AFOUL OF THE LAW IS DRAMATIC.

The rest went for completely unrelated projects, including “accelerating social change,” fighting AIDS, “sustainable development,” and working for “digital equalizers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But hey, for the Clinton Cartel, this is absolutely...normal.

Screw the people for whom the money was originally intended, and line the pockets of the principals fronting the charity.

German Jewish Leaders Slam Court for Acquitting Holocaust Denier

The state Supreme Court decision to acquit extreme right-wing politician Hans Püschel by annulling the fine levied by a lower court is viewed by some as an unprecedented challenge to German law, which requires punishment for trivialization of the Holocaust and glorification of Nazi crimes. The decision was announced locally in October 2015, but became public on Wednesday after inquiries by the German daily newspaper Die Welt.

Historians have expressed astonishment at the ruling, and observers expect courts to run into trouble when trying to prosecute future cases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

History of World War II: Nazi Germany was Financed by the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England

The recent resolution of the parliamentary Assembly of the OSCE fully equalizes the role of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany at the outbreak of the Second World War, except that it had the purely pragmatic purpose of extorting money from Russia on the contents of some of the bankrupt economies, intended to demonize Russia as the successor state to the USSR, and to prepare the legal ground for the deprivation of her right to speak out against revision of results of war.

But if we approach the problem of responsibility for the war, then you first need to answer the key question: who helped the Nazis come to power? Who sent them on their way to world catastrophe? The entire pre-war history of Germany shows that the provision of the “necessary” policies were managed by the financial turmoil, in which, by the way, the world was plunged into.

2-minute video: First to document ‘official story’ on JFK’s assassination was obviously false, first to expose ‘world war’ and Vietnam War was/is War for Empire: Bertrand Russell on the essentials of factual truth and love

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

2 minutes from Bertrand Russell’s BBC interview in 1959 at age 87:

Bertrand Russell was a leader for today’s work to reveal “official stories” as easily-proved lies of commission and omission covering crimes of ongoing empire. Russell’s leadership includes:

Scathing 16 questions on the assassination to powerfully demonstrate the “official story” of President Kennedy’s assassination was obviously false. Russell’s intellectual integrity and moral courage led this work in 1964 (my best attempt of what we know now).
Leadership to reveal World War 1 as nothing other than infighting among would-be colonial slavers to loot the innocent. Russell was fired and imprisoned. (my best attempt to expose “official stories” of WW1 as obvious lies).
Leadership for the International War Crimes Tribunal to reveal the Vietnam as an obvious lie-started War of Aggression (my best attempt).

Oil, Power and Money: “Assad Must Go”

Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link. In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria. — Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria, Politico

The conflict in Syria is not a war in the conventional sense of the word. It is a regime change operation, just like Libya and Iraq were regime change operations.

The main driver of the conflict is the country that’s toppled more than 50 sovereign governments since the end of World War 2. (See: Bill Blum here.) We’re talking about the United States of course.

The Social Impacts of Drug Trafficking and Heroin in America

For eight years President Obama has been the commander-in-chief of U.S. armed forces in Afghanistan, a country that produces 90% of the opium in the world. ¹ With a stroke of his pen Obama could shut off most of the drug supply to 17 million heroin and opium addicts. Instead, his legacy is the same as George W. Bush. He allowed drugs to flow unimpeded out of Afghanistan for both terms of his presidency.

In a September 17, 2016 speech to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, President Obama insisted that it would be a personal insult to him if African Americans do not vote for Hillary Clinton. He said that only she can continue his legacy of support for the black community.

Call it ironic or Orwellian, but the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is coming after conservative Christians for clinging to their beliefs.

"It should set off alarm bells," says Commissioner Peter Kirsanow, a dissenting voice on the commission, "because what the Civil Rights Commission does you will see in law very often a few years down the road, maybe even less than that."

At issue is the mammoth 306-page report, released Sept. 7, entitled "Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Liberties."

The chairman of the eight-member commission is Martin Castro, who stated during the report's release that religion is used as a "weapon and a shield" to deny others equality.

Hillary Clinton’s State Department Allowed Millions of Taxpayer Dollars to Be Spent Helping Companies Outsource American Jobs

Hillary Clinton’s State Department oversaw a government agency’s expenditure of millions of taxpayer dollars to help companies outsource American tech jobs to foreign countries.
In 2010, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) spent tens of millions of taxpayer dollars building schools in Sri Lanka and Armenia, specifically to increase those countries’ outsourcing capacity to take away American jobs.

“The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent federal agency that receives overall foreign policy guidance from the Secretary of State… USAID plans its development and assistance programs in coordination with the Department of State,” according to the State Department’s website.

Obama administration may use obscure fund to pay billions to ACA insurers

The Obama administration is maneuvering to pay health insurers billions of dollars the government owes under the Affordable Care Act, through a move that could circumvent Congress and help shore up the president’s signature legislative achievement before he leaves office.

Justice Department officials have privately told several health plans suing over the unpaid money that they are eager to negotiate a broad settlement, which could end up offering payments to about 175 health plans selling coverage on ACA marketplaces, according to insurance executives and lawyers familiar with the talks.

The payments most likely would draw from an obscure Treasury Department fund intended to cover federal legal claims, the executives and lawyers said. This approach would get around a recent congressional ban on the use of Health and Human Services money to pay the insurers.

Barzun bought his ambassadorship, paying more than $3.5 million to the DNC and Obama's Organizing for Action nonprofit from 8-21-2009 to the present. This is how the government has been operating under Obama; globalists are paying large sums to take up roles in the U.S. government in order to carry out their own agendas. The same sort of corruption occurred through the Clinton Foundation. After Hillary was appointed secretary of state, foreign donors gave to the foundation only to gain favors in return.

Are The ‘Invisible Americans’ the Key Players in This Election?

Just as the Vietnam War was built on lies, propaganda, PR and rigged statistics(the infamous body counts–civilians killed as “collateral damage” counted as “enemy combatants”), so too is the “recovery” nothing but a pathetic tissue of PR, propaganda, and lies. I have demolished the bogus 5.3% “increase” in median household income, the equally bogus “official inflation” body counts, oops I mean statistics, and the bogus unemployment rate

Here’s How the Government Is Turning the Entire United States into a Debt Prison

The staggering amount of debt held by the American empire ensures the public will be working it off for generations to come. The government has already begun its campaign to make it more difficult to leave the country, and it has also begun to crack down on the finances of the eight million Americans living abroad. Regardless of whether you’re a millionaire with multiple foreign bank accounts or a recent college graduate with a boatload of debt, the status of being a United States citizen brings with it a burden that will only grow heavier over time.

Student Suspended, Visited by Cops, Forced Psych Eval — For Pro 2nd Amendment School Project

The incident began Monday after Harvey, as many students sometimes do, left his USB drive in the computer lab. Another student opened Harvey’s 11th-grade project and reported him to school officials.

At 7pm Monday evening, Harvey’s family said they were paid a visit by local law enforcement, who investigated Harvey’s claims the project was from last school year, and cleared him of any criminal mischief.

But that apparently wasn’t enough to satisfy the Manville School District who suspended and then promptly ordered Harvey to undergo a 5-hour psychological evaluation stemming from the months later discovery of his anti-gun control project.

It seems the teacher, who assigned the work, can no longer recall having done so. But the 12th grader disagrees and so does his family.

Harvey said his teacher approved his topic (against gun control), he completed the project, and received an “A” for his efforts.

School Police Have Used Electroshock Weapons On At Least 4 Kids Since August

The two girls are part of a group of at least four students that school-based police officers have used Tasers on since the start of the 2016-2017 school year, according to media reports The Huffington Post has tracked. Nationwide, school police have used Tasers on students in at least 84 other incidents since 2011, according to an August HuffPost investigation.

Military-Style Raid Ends Native Prayer Against Dakota Pipeline

North Dakota police with military-style equipment surrounded Native Americans gathered in prayer against the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline on Wednesday, disrupting their plan to cross sacred and treaty-protected land in protest of a project they fear will destroy their livelihood.

“ND authorities deploy armed personnel with shotguns and assault rifles, military vehicles, and aerial spray on peaceful Water Protectors gathered in prayer,” wrote the Sacred Stone Camp, in a Facebook post.

Officers with military-style armored vehicles and shotguns threatened the protesters, who call themselves “water protectors” for defending the Missouri River from imminent pollution, reported Unicorn Riot. Up to 21 were arrested, the channel reported.

He continued, “It is going to be the most broad-based assault in every direction to try to keep [Trump] out of the White House. And so this is headed to Armageddon, if you will, politically.”

"That's Enough!" Says retired lawman running for Idaho Sheriff

In Law Enforcement “Gypsy Cop” is slang for a nomadic or itinerant lawman. Under Zollman we have had the following incidents, most of these incidents have been created by the incompetent hiring processes that resulted in Adams County hiring “Gypsy Cops.” Background checks have not been done, or if they were done, the results of the background check were ignored by Zollman. While Adams County is fortunate to have several solid deputies serving our community, our little county is in the news for the actions of men who had glaring “red flags” that were simply not heeded.A Deputy was hired that had been fired from another agency, had been on court ordered probation, and then hired at the Adams County Sheriff’s office. This deputy was involved in the shooting of a local rancher. Does the phrase “Gypsy cop” fit this Deputy? Is there any background check information that would result in an applicant being rejected?

Why Again Is the American Empire the 'Good Guys'?

"Why Are We The Good Guys?" is the title of a brilliant 2012 book by David Cromwell of the media monitoring organization, Media Lens. The book challenges the dominant elite orthodoxy that whatever "mistakes" they may make, the US and its closest allies always mean well - and are an undoubted force for good in the world.

Well, that might have been true in World War Two, when the US, the Soviet Union, Britain and others were fighting the Nazis, but I wonder if there's anyone out there (and whose salary isn't paid by the US defense industry, NATO, George Soros or Rupert Murdoch), who would still claim that the US — and its closest allies — are benign actors in international affairs?

Since 2000, we’ve had eight years of a Republican president, eight years of a Democrat president, with both parties having control of Congress at various points over the sixteen years. The national debt, after 211 years of this country’s existence, was $5.7 trillion in 2000. Both parties are responsible for the 342% increase over the last sixteen years to $19.5 trillion. Democrats agreed to never end warfare in exchange for Republican support for an expansion of the entitlement state. Meanwhile, the country’s GDP only rose 79% over the same time frame.

Rigged: CNN Poll Claiming Hillary Won the Debate Sampled 41% Democrats Compared to 26% Republicans

A CNN/ORC poll released shortly after last night’s debate found that Hillary Clinton scored a clear victory over her rival Donald Trump. One problem – the survey sample included 41% Democrats compared to just 26% Republicans. While the consensus opinion appears to be that Clinton won on points but Trump achieved his mission of appearing electable, the gross bias exhibited in CNN’s sampling – along with moderator Lester Holt’s failure to ask Hillary any tough questions – will fuel accusations made by Trump supporters that the entire race is being rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.

The performance put Trump on track to win the presidency in November, Adams wrote. "But the most interesting question has to do with what problem both of them were trying to solve with the debate. Clinton tried to look healthy, and as I mentioned, I don't think she completely succeeded. But Trump needed to solve exactly one problem: Look less scary. Trump needed to counter Clinton's successful branding of him as having a bad temperament to the point of being dangerous to the country. Trump accomplished exactly that."

At this critical moment in history, we must defend speech freedom or lose it forever, because the Nazi-like P.C. language police on the left demand that you either surrender to them or DIE. Sound familiar? History has been here before, and it didn’t end without massive bloodshed. Eventually, the USA, Russia and other allies had to use kinetic weapons to destroy the Nazi regime and end its “politically correct” genocide against humanity. Let us hope it doesn’t come to that again.

New Cold War Spins Out of Control

In the aftermath of the U.S. attack on the Syrian army positions overlooking and commanding the Dier A-Zor airfield – the airfield, whose daily “Berlin air-bridge” style flights, are the sole lifeline to a city long besieged by ISIS – the Russian U.N. Ambassador asked a pertinent rhetorical question at the United Nations Security Council: Who is running U.S. policy: Is it the Pentagon or the White House?

What is so surprising here is the non-surprise evinced by the editorial writers of the New York Times. The Board blandly states that the Defense Secretary and the Pentagon might not comply. Not a hint of surprise is evident at the constitutional implications of this open defiance of Presidential authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you, but the fact that Sec Def Carter is running the show now at the Pentagon scares the living stuffing out of me.

He is one of the most war-centric, verbally belligerent, non-prone to dialogue that could lead to negotiations, Sec Def that we have had in quite some time, probably since Rumsfeld.

He appears very much to be drunk on the smell on his own cork, when it comes to confronting Russia militarily,and that is a very dangerous state of affairs in which the US government finds itself.

FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY: RECEIVED MILLIONS FROM CLINTON FOUNDATION, ON THEIR CORPORATE PARTNER BOARD, BROTHER WORKS FOR LAW FIRM THAT DOES CLINTON FOUNDATION TAXES

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of COURSE, Comey's decision to not press charges against Clinton was completely political; the ultra-rich rarely eat their own!!

NATO IS REVIEWING ‘NUCLEAR PLAYBOOK’ TO DETER ‘TERRIBLE ATTACKS’ BY RUSSIA – PENTAGON CHIEF

The Pentagon chief put Russia on par with North Korea when he spoke about threats faced by the US and its allies, and the need to invest billions into refreshing NATO’s nuclear playbook to integrate conventional and unconventional deterrence methods.

Addressing US servicemen, missile units and B-52 crews at Minot Base, Defense Secretary Ash Carter stated that the US and its allies had not built any new nuclear weapons or delivery systems in the last 25 years – and said that American nuclear forces must be ready to engage in a possible nuclear confrontation with Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Sec Def Carter; Kim Jong-Un might potentially be stupid enough to do this, adamantly ignoring the fact that such an act would turn North Korea into a molten pile of oozing glass, courtesy of a US/South Korean airstrike; but Vlad Putin?!?

Mr. Carter, forgive me, but Putin has appeared to me very much the adult in the room in geopolitical discussions; he attempted to broker a Syrian cease-fire (which your Pentagon broke with a strike, BTW, killing and wounding numerous Syrian soldiers).

Everything he has done has been an asymmetric move against what NATO and American military have done.

NATO has placed a European defense field in Poland and Romania.

U.S. launches long-awaited European missile defense shield

Theoretically, this is to save Europe from any kind of Iranian attack, but why would they, in light of the agreement with the P5+1, which stopped their development of nuclear weapons?!?

Russian leadership is very aware of what these installations mean at their border; NATO and the US are preparing for some kind of an assault against Russia at some point in the not too distant future.

Added to that, there has been an encirclement of Russia by NATO forces:

U.S., NATO troop buildup in Eastern Europe to counter Russians is largest since Cold War

NATO has condemned Russia at this year's NATO summit this last summer, and appeared to be gearing up for war against it:

NATO Summit Closes By Condemning Russia. US Soldiers and Weapons to Russia’s Border

Therefore, is it actually any surprise to someone with more than two brain cells to rub together that Russia is preparing for the eventuality of war against NATO and the US?
RUSSIA PREPARES FOR WAR WITH THE US AND NATO, WHILE LACKING RESOURCES

In June of this year, Russia deployed troops close to their border with Ukraine:

Russia deploys troops westward as standoff with NATO deepens

And in June of this year, the following was reported:

NATO to send ‘combat-ready’ battalions near Russian border

This deployment is to happen sometime next year; and as of this Saturday, we will already be in October.

And please don't scream at Russia about it's weaponry development, when our weapons procurement system is mired in an absolutely incestuous set of relationships between the Congressional representatives who award contracts, and then get generous contributions from those firms making the weapons.

You, sir, of all people, have to know that how this translates, when US weapons are field deployed.

The deployments are late, sometimes to the point of weaponry being obsolete before they are delivered; have hideous cost over-runs, and absolutely cannot function as promised. Need I remind you of the current mechanical, and fiscal, nightmares with Lockheed-Martin's F-35?!?

As reported in August of this year:

Pentagon weapons tester: F-35 fighter jet has ‘significant’ problems

And finally, please do not compare Russia's President Putin with Kim Jong-Un, because there is utterly no comparison between the two leaders.

Putin has demonstrated, time and time again, his interest in good faith, hard-won negotiations; unfortunately it appears to be the United States government which appears to be thoroughly disinterested in such activities.

So I need to speculate; is the reason you're putting Russia and North Korea in the same "risk assessment" category is that the Pentagon is planning to launch a false flag with a mini-nuke somewhere in Europe, and blame Russia for it?!?

False flags, as you know, are a big part of the US military's stock in trade.

Could the Elite Be Dumping Hillary? “Even the Deep State Needs Consent of the Governed”

Even if everyone in the room and even behind the curtain holds their nose at Trump when he walks in the room or says something bombastic, Trump has something that Hillary could never buy: the sense of being a truly outside option, a chance at resetting and trying again. What has been done in America up to this point has, very clearly, not worked for the average American, the dying middle class families and the increasing number of desperate and poor populations. In that climate and that context, it would seem that even a completely rigged election could hardly favor Hillary – she’s the new face of the system’s dirty diaper. Time to go.

Washington Tries to Break BRICS – Rape of Brazil Begins

Washington’s regime change machinery has for the time being succeeded in removing an important link in the alliance of large emerging nations by railroading through a Senate impeachment of the duly elected President, Dilma Rousseff. On August 31 her Vice President Michel Temer was sworn in as President. In his first speech as president, the cynical Temer called for a government of “national salvation,” asking for the trust of the Brazilian people. He indicated plans to reform, and has also signaled his intention to overhaul the pension system and labor laws, and cut public spending, all themes beloved of Wall Street banks, of the International Monetary Fund and their Washington Consensus. Now after less than three weeks at the job, Temer has unveiled plans for wholesale privatization of Brazil’s crown jewels, starting with oil. The planned Wall Street rape of Brazil is about to begin.

26 Incredible Facts About The Economy That Every American Should Know Before The Trump-Clinton Debate

Are you ready for the most anticipated presidential debate in decades? It is being projected that Monday’s debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could potentially break the all-time record of 80 million viewers that watched Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter debate back in 1980. Many Americans probably hope to see some personal fireworks between the two nominees, but the two candidates have both expressed a desire to focus on substantive issues. There will likely be quite a few questions about the economy, and without a doubt this is an area where Trump and Clinton have some very sharp differences. The mainstream media would have us believe that the U.S. economy is in pretty good shape, and if that was true that would seem to favor Clinton. But is it actually true? The following are 26 incredible facts about the economy that every American should know for the Trump-Clinton debate…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real numbers look pretty damned depressing; but then again, people in government lie about pretty much everything, so why shouldn't they be lying now about the economy?!?

Nothing that comes out of the mouth of any politician, or the presstitutes who regurgitate their sound bites, can ever be trusted, ever again; it is in the independent media where the truth generally shows up.

Even in the deadliest years, the chance of a student or adult being killed at school is roughly one in a million. By contrast, roughly five out of every 100,000 American residents are murdered each year. Extrapolating from this, schools are somewhere in the region of 50 times safer than society overall.
Now here's the most tragic part....

And yet you’d never know that from the level of fear that exists around schools—or from the vast amount of money we spend attempting to make them more secure. The research company IHS Technology recently estimated that schools and universities spent about $768 million on security measures in 2014—a sum that it predicted would rise to roughly $907 million for 2016. That’s an awful lot of money to spend at a time when state and local budget cuts are limiting educational opportunities for students across the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, THAT's positive reinforcement for you!!

But seriously, if I even thought for a moment that an altercation between an officer and my child would result in her being dumped, dragged, and arrested for a minor infraction of school policies, I would get that kid out of that school so quickly, it would make the principal's head spin.

But what this kind of behaviour ultimately teaches kids is that the Authority Figures are always right, even when they are not, and have the power to physically overwhelm, and severely punish you.

As kids who are taught this way, when these children get to become young adults, the State becomes the teacher/officer, and still has the brutal power to silence, and crush you, even to death, even when what you are saying is legitimate.

Look at what the US government is doing to Chelsea Manning, to get a good concept of where this ultimately winds up.

Telling truth to power becomes dangerous, so most people just suck up the lies that ultimately will destroy their lives, if they are not careful.

New attack on free speech: Pro-Israel groups wage war on campus freedom

College campuses traditionally have been the sites of social and political protest — the combination of youth, intellectual energy, free speech, and academic freedom is a powerful catalyst for vibrant and often heated debate. Given the strain this can sometimes place on the equilibrium of universities, it is not surprising to see limits placed on speech and action. What is unusual is for pressure to come from groups outside the university. That’s precisely what is happening today when it comes to the topic of Israel and Palestine, and the overreach of some pro-Israel organizations into campus free speech is such that even those who oppose an academic boycott of Israel have condemned their actions.

Insider Warren Buffet Knows A Massive Crash Is Coming: “Has $70 Billion On The Sidelines… Clearly Anticipating The Biggest Buying Opportunity Of His Life”

Buffet has joined other billionaires in recent months to sit on the sidelines and wait for the crash that everyone knows is coming. And given that these insiders have essentially pulled the majority of their money out of risky markets with many shifting to collapse-proof assets like gold and silver, we must be very close to widespread financial and economic disaster.

12-minute video: US illegal and lie-started War of Aggression on Syria piles on Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, drone targets, and 30 million similar war-killed victims since WW2. This is your America under President Trump or Clinton until YOU demand .01% arres

And as we reported in March 2016: Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change’s insightful 11-minute video with former US Marine Ken O’Keefe:

Among hundreds in alternative media, I document illegal US/UK/Israel lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression that continue hundreds of years of psychopathic would-be empires, now focused on Syria with documented use of nuclear weapons (and here) by imperial forces (1-minute video):

We’ve documented and proven that US “officials” outrageously lie to demonize Russia (and here) acting at the request of Syria’s government for military operations within their own borders against rogue terrorists. These terrorists apparently are agents of the US/UK/Israel illegal Wars of Aggression for empire (also here, here, here).

ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorist attacks on Westerners is evil.

And as a white American from a Judeo-Christian background, I am repulsed by the fact that ISIS is targeting Christians in Syria and Iraq with brutal murder … including crucifixion. [And these crimes are invariably not reported by the Western media.]

But most victims of ISIS, Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorism are themselves Muslim.

This photo from Charlotte tells you all you need to know about policing in America

A line of police officers stand in the dark on a Charlotte, North Carolina, highway. They look like an occupying force with their helmets and face shields and various weaponry strapped all over their armored clothing. A large bus illuminates them with its headlights. The front of the bus declares in bright lights: “NOT IN SERVICE”.

It’s as if these police responding to protests of Tuesday’s shooting death of Keith Scott are carrying with them a lighted banner that declares what black Americans already know: they are not in service. Not for us.

FLASHBACK - America Vanquished, Part 1: America as an Israeli Colony, by Dr Lasha Darkmoon

“I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government,” Jewish columnist Joel Stein wrote in the Los Angeles Times in December 2008. “I just care that we get to keep running them.”

Mr Stein’s reckless candor in admitting that the Jews ran America was to cost him his job at the LA Times.

If Americans have lost their country to organized Jewry, they lost it slowly and imperceptibly. Indeed, most Americans remain unaware that their country no longer belongs to them. They fervently believe they still live in a democracy. This was a takeover not without precedent, however. It had happened to Germany. It had happened to Russia. It has now happened to America.

Evil, Deceitful, Unspeakable (JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters)

Distracted as we were by 911 and the war on terror, and the revelation that our government has the capacity to pull off an Operation Northwoods, as the ARRB found out, we continued to keep half an eyeball on the story, those of us who were paying attention. But then just as we were ready to reach a verdict of no true bill, Peter Jennings pops in to save the day for the prosecution. Disregarding all prior logic, evidence and common sense he lulled us back to comfortable numbness as he proved through computer generation, laser beams and some small degree of witchcraft that yes, indeed that was some magic bullet.

Ignore the Flu Vaccine Propaganda

Last year the flu season was predicted to peak in February. However, this year the news media, on cue from the Centers for Disease Control, is starting their vaccination campaign early by planting the idea of vaccination in the minds of senior Americans who are most at risk for the flu and suggesting in doubletalk that seniors wait and get their vaccine later rather than sooner (??).

I Was RFK’s Speechwriter. Now I’m Voting for Trump. Here’s Why.

Only one American candidate has pointed out how senseless it is to seek confrontation with Russia and China, at the same time that we are trying to suppress the very jihadist movements that they also are attacking.

That candidate is Donald Trump. Throughout this campaign, he has said that as president, he would quickly sit down with President Putin and seek relaxation of tensions between our nations, and possible collaboration in the fight against terrorists. On this ground alone, he marks himself as greatly superior to all his competitors, earlier in the primaries and now in the general election.

World Bank Chief: Sweden Should Create Independent Migrant State Where Laws Don’t Apply

Sweden could solve their migrant problem by creating a new state-within-a-state where national laws don’t apply and sending thousands of migrants and so-called refugees there, the incoming chief economist of the influential World Bank has said. Paul Romer, director of New York University’s Stern School of Business Urbanisation Project, made the remarks about his unusual approach to Sweden’s migrant crisis this week in an interview with the national newspaper Dagens Nyhter. Suggesting the zone could model itself on British Hong Kong, the senior economist said it could bring enormous benefit at no cost to the taxpayer.

Operation Mockingbird: The FBI Investigates Itself, Finds No Wrong-Doing

In a clearcut case of the fox investigating a breach into the henhouse, the FBI has reviewed their own use of deception and deemed it perfectly fine. Sometimes you’d swear they’re just making fun of us.

Operation Mockingbird gives the FBI the green light to go ahead and impersonate journalists in an attempt to gather evidence in undercover operations. While this could seem minor, it’s just another shove down the slippery slope to a totalitarian state and another nail in the coffin of due process.

House Panel: ‘Reboot’ of US Military to Cost $1 Trillion Over Next Decade

With officials constantly looking for new ways to add even more spending to the Pentagon’s annual budget, all the while griping about the spending caps they never respect in the first place, the House Armed Services Committee is laying out a ridiculously expensive scheme to “reboot” the entire military.

Panel members insist that 15 years of non-stop war has, despite that same period being loaded with record budgets, pushed the military to its limit, and that the new plan is needed, which will take a decade and cost an addition $1 trillion, above and beyond the already massive amounts being spent.

Hawks on the panel insist that the massive new scheme is needed because the military is “unready” to fight a major war with either Russia or China, despite the $1 trillion by itself likely to be well more than either nation spends in that time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress spends like a drunken sailor on our military equipment, but doesn't spend smart.

Because of the incestuous relationship between Congressional representatives who award military contracts, and those defense industry corporations, which "grease the wheels" with generous contributions to said Congressional representatives, the following things happen:

1. Products absolutely do not perform as promised.

2. When those weapons arrive, they arrive so late as to be obsolete before even being put into service.

3. There are huge cost over-runs, which the government is forced to pay for.

Before Congress spends one more dime on military hardware and software, these problems have to be fixed, period, end of discussion.

All those who read this blog understand that I abhor war as a way though which the US government resolves its geopolitical disagreements; that being said, when conflict comes, I want to be assured that our military personnel have the best, and most current weapons available.

And by not fixing its weapons procurement process, Congress is completely short-changing every military personnel in uniform, and THAT...bites!!

Pentagon Seeks 500 More Ground Troops in Iraq for Mosul Invasion

With officials saying that the planned invasion of the city of Mosul could begin as soon as October, the Pentagon is once again requesting more US ground troops be deployed into the area around the city, The Pentagon has already deployed several hundred troops multiple times in the last two months on the same basis.

The Pentagon is seeking another 500 “permanent” US troops in Iraq, which would bring the official figure in the country to 4,900. In practice, the Pentagon already is believed to have in excess of 6,000 troops in Iraq, but labels many of them “temporary” and doesn’t count them, despite their deployments not having any specific end date.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to ask Sec Def Carter: how many American troops, please, will it take for a successful re-taking of Musul?!?

20,000?!?

50,000 ?!?

100,000?!?

And why in the world are our soldiers put into a position of fighting, dying and getting maimed for life against an enemy that the US government government has, in fact, created and funded?!?

What is this bloody and deadly masquerade?!?

And to ultimately what end?!?

That, I can tell you; to insure that American-sponsored multinationals control Iraq's oil, and that the oil is only sold for US dollars.

German Politicians Are Getting Nervous About Deutsche Bank

Just a few short days after Germany's premier financial publication Handelsblatt dared to utter the "n"-word, when it said that in the aftermath of last week's striking $14 billion DOJ settlement proposal, "some have even raised the possibility of a government bailout of Germany’s largest bank, which would be a defining event and a symbolic blow to the image of Europe’s largest economy", German lawmakers are finally starting to get nervous.

According to Bloomberg, Deutsche Bank’s suddenly troubling finances, impacted by the bank's low profitability courtesy of the ECB's NIRP policy as well as mounting legal costs courtesy of years of legal violations, "are raising concern among German politicians." At a closed session of Social Democratic finance lawmakers on Tuesday, Deutsche Bank’s woes came up alongside a debate over Basel financial rules. Participants discussed the U.S. fine and the financial reserves at Deutsche Bank’s disposal if it had to cover the full amount.

Britain increases aid to Yemen while selling arms to Saudis - who are bombing Yemen

BRITAIN is to increase the amount of aid destined for those caught up in the civil war in Yemen - at the same time as it sells arms to the Saudi regime which is carrying out airstrikes in the war-torn Gulf state.

International Development Secretary Priti Patel announced that Britain will provide an additional £37million in funding for Yemen this year.

A total of £72m has already been committed to the crisis in Yemen by the UK Government.

But the Government has simultaneously approved more than £3billion in arms sales over the past 18 months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War profits uber alles, right, Prime Minister May?!?!?

May I politely remind you that the Saudi Arabian military has been committing war crimes all over Yemen, and that makes the UK a "Proud Partner in War Crimes"?!?

But hey, as long as your defense industry is making profits, nothing else matters, right?!? Because for Members of Parliament, money appears to their only religion.

And they have to get those fat contributions from defense corporations to continue to stand for Parliament, right?!?!?

HERE’S HOW CIA PUPPET MASTERS ARE DELIBERATELY PICKING A WORLD WAR III LEVEL FIGHT

It’s really quite embarrassing on a global scale when members of our own government seem to be deliberately trying to pick fights with people who aren’t interested in fighting with us. If you’ve traveled outside of the United States much, you probably know that we Americans have a rather negative reputation off of our own shores. Now, generally speaking, that isn’t our fault as individuals. You and I don’t create headlines that make waves throughout Europe and Asia.

While average Americans aren’t directly responsible for this, our federal officials are. I’ve written recently about President Obama doing things in Syria that are worsening the conflict there. I’ve also written about the fact that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin are starting to butt heads. And finally, I’ve warned time and time again that war is upon us – and everyone knows but the US.

Michael Morell is the director of the CIA. Here’s a little blurb from Wikipedia about him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think there are multiple reasons why the Obama Administration wants war against Russia in Syria.

First, as an attempted distraction from the lousy economy realities for many here in the United States.

There are over 94 million Americans who cannot find work, but are not counted in the US Labor Statistics because they "have been out of the work force for too long". That's a great trick by the Us Department of Labor, worthy of a magician; they've just made these people...disappear.

Secondly, if it appears that Trump is going to absolutely win the election by a landslide in November, this Administration would love to "gift" him with a war even before he has had the chance to take the Oath of Office.

I would like to soberly and politely remind this Administration of the epic fails their military misadventures have been so far; continuing to fail in Afghanistan and Iraq; continuing to fail in Libya, and continuing to fail in the US-militarily enabled Saudi war against Yemen.

And with all these failures, and no respite in sight, the Administration is spoiling for a war with Russia over Syria?!?

There is a classic definition of insanity, which amounts to doing the same thing over and over again, in precisely the same way, yet consistently expecting a different outcome.

And by this definition, the US government under President Obama's watch, has gone completely insane.

Such a war may not go well for the US government, because at this point, our military doesn't have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to such a war.

Additionally, such a war against Russia over Syria, in order to accomplish regime change in Syria, does not at all put this country on the moral, or right side of history.

And right now, I think that mandatory reading for every Governmental and military personnel pushing for such a war should be Sun Szu's "The Art of War."

Carefully.

Multiple times.

YES!!!! OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE VOTES TO HOLD CLINTON IT AIDE IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS

The House Oversight Committee on Thursday morning voted on party lines to recommend that the House hold former State Department IT technician Bryan Pagliano in contempt of Congress.

Pagliano was responsible for setting up Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of State.

The former State Department employee declined to appear at an Oversight hearing on Clinton's server last week, in spite of a subpoena demanding his presence. The committee held a follow-up hearing on the same subject on Thursday morning, which Pagliano also declined to attend.
When Pagliano didn’t show, Republicans immediately adjourned the hearing and held a business meeting to vote on the contempt of Congress resolution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the immortal words of my late grandmother, "The horse is already out of the barn."

By not keeping Pagliano in some kind of protective custody before his testimony was due to happen, Congress may have inadvertently insured that he could already be dead, or have fled the country.

I am certain this man "knows the price" for bucking the Clinton Cartel, and if still alive, will do everything within his power to avoid that.

Either way, I would NOT bet on him testifying in front of Congress, even though he has been been subpoenaed.

America’s rivers and streams are overflowing with microplastic pollution

For years, cosmetic, toothpaste, and body care product manufacturers added “microbeads,” microscopic balls of plastic, to their merchandise, touting their skin-exfoliating effects. A Congressional ban that goes into effect beginning in 2017 will put an end to the environmentally toxic practice, at least in the US.
Researchers studying America’s waterways have now discovered microbeads may be the tip of the iceberg for plastic pollution.
A study published in Environmental Science & Technology on Sept. 14 found rivers and streams in the US are full of microplastic debris. Scientists studied 29 tributaries that flow into the Great Lakes across six states and floating microplastics were found in all 107 samples collected. The trash ranged from fragments, films, foams, and pellets (most prevalent in urban areas) to tiny fibers, potentially originating from fishing line, nets, and synthetic textiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clean, free water should be a basic human right; unfortunately, what passes for "clean water" in much of the US is really a toxic compound that should be avoided like the plague.
