Obama Administration Files Motion In An Effort To Protect Clinton

The Obama administration is stepping in to prevent Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from being deposed in a legal case dealing with her use of a private email server for classified information.

How State Department IG's Report On Clinton's Emails Could Lead To Joe Biden Becoming Democratic Nominee

THE THOROUGH and devastating report by the State Department’s Inspector General concerning Hillary Clinton’s emails has blasted away all the former Secretary of State’s excuses and rationales. For instance, Clinton never received legal permission of any sort for what she did. She knowingly jeopardized national security. She and her aides tried to stonewall the investigation. By the way, the IG was appointed by President Obama, so Clinton can’t claim these findings were politically motivated by a GOP holdover.

Other officials have faced serious charges for offenses far less serious.

The Clinton campaign is counting on public indifference and confusion to blunt any lasting fallout. Unstated also is perhaps the belief that the egregiously politicized Obama Justice Department will make sure the ongoing FBI investigation ends up going nowhere, with, at worst, a homogenized finding of unintentional carelessness.

Ted Cruz’s Senate colleagues tell him to stay the hell away from their reelection campaigns

Republican senators, already facing the possibility of a tough reelection in a year that will likely see Donald Trump heading up the ticket, have something else to fear — Ted Cruz’s support.

According to The Hill, Sens. Kelly Ayotte (NH), John McCain (AZ) and Pat Toomey (PA) are all facing tough reelection bids and have told Cruz thanks, but no thanks when it comes to endorsements and campaign help.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Senator Cruz has become "kryptonite" to his brother and sister Republican Senators after his election bid this year, and they don't want him anywhere near them!!

‘Debt Trap Debbie’ Wasserman Schultz slammed in new ad for siding with predatory lenders

Ads that label DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “Debt Trap Debbie” were set to debut on Miami-area television stations on Tuesday, CBS Miami reported. “President Obama was right when he condemned predatory payday lenders for ‘trapping hard-working Americans into a vicious cycle of debt,’ with interest rates of over 300 percent,” the ad begins, before urging viewers to go to DebtTrapDebbie.com and sign a petition telling Wasserman Schultz not to “sabotage President Obama’s hard work to hold payday lenders accountable.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Ms. Wasserman Schultz: as a career politician you are known by both the company you keep, and the companies which own you.

The reality that from your 2006 election campaign to present, you have accepted $325,850 from finance/credit companies very clearly indicates why you have co-sponsored a bill (by the GOP, no less) to delay the enforcement of payday lender restrictions for two years.

And yes, owning a career politician, such as yourself, always comes with ...benefits for the owner; unfortunately, not for We the People.

TONY BLAIR GETS AWAY WITH COMMITTING WAR CRIMES

The reason for this is simple.

There are two sets of moral and legal standards—one for the elite and their handpicked minions, and another, far more exacting and harsh, for the rest of us, the commoners.

On Saturday, another example reminded us of this double standard.

The so-called Chilcot Inquiry decided former British prime minister Tony Blair will not be investigated for breaking the law when he colluded with George W. Bush and the neocons to invade Iraq and kill over a million people.

A report generated by a committee of Privy Counsellors and led by Sir John Chilcot declared it would “not seek to determine the guilt of innocence of anybody” and will not make “any judgments on the legality or anything like that,” The Sunday Telegraph reports.

Instead, the report focuses on the “decision making behind the conflict and whether any lessons can be learned,” according to The Guardian.

Goldman Sachs Financed Hillary Clinton’s Son-in-Law to Make Bullish Greek Bets After It Structured Unseemly Greek Debt Deals that Hobbled that Country

On May 10, the New York Times gently dropped a bombshell on the hedge fund investing world of New York’s one-percenters. Hillary and Bill Clinton’s son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, who married their only child, Chelsea, in an opulent 2010 wedding, was shuttering the Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity Fund after it had lost 90 percent of its value. That is a staggering loss for a hedge fund, which is, as its name implies, supposed to have hedges in place to prevent that kind of loss.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but with people like these money junkies, completely normal behaviour.

Mike Rivero Interviews Attorney Allan J. Favish On The Vincent Foster Case - Must Hear

Last Thursday May 26, 2016, Mike Rivero of WhatReallyHappened.com interviewed attorney Allan J. Favish on the Vincent foster case. The two have a very interesting discussion covering many interesting and little-known aspects of this case. Favish sued the U.S. government in the 1990s and it went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. He sought the release of "photographs taken by the Government as part of its investigation into the death of President Bill Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster. On March 30, 2004, the United States Supreme Court issued its opinion in the case entitled National Archives and Records Administration v. Allan J. Favish." Foster was "suicided" on July 20, 1993 and the issue is relevant today, particularly because of arch-criminal Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency.

MINISTRY OF TRUTH: FACEBOOK SIGNS EUROPEAN UNION PLEDGE TO SUPPRESS LOOSELY DEFINED ‘HATE SPEECH’ AND PROMOTE ‘COUNTER NARRATIVES’

The European Commission has today announced a partnership with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft in order to crack down on what it classes as “illegal hate speech” while “criminaliz[ing]” perpetrators and “promoting independent counter-narratives” that the European Union favours.

A press release from the Commission this morning claims the new initiative has been set up “to respond to the challenge of ensuring that online platforms do not offer opportunities for illegal online hate speech to spread virally”.

The move has been branded “Orwellian” by Members of the European Parliament, and digital freedom groups have already pulled out of any further discussions with the Commission, calling the new policy “lamentable”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but you have to know where this is going; to tell the truth in the EU, by any electronic method, is going to be deemed "illegal".

And these alleged "trusted reporters"; who are they, except those pushing the EU agenda, and removing anything which could possibly not be in sync with that agenda, even if what they are removing about potential negative aspects of the EU happens to be the truth?!?

George Orwell, the author of "1984" was not only a great writer; Unfortunately, in the 21st century, he has also been proven to be a prophet as well.

HIDDEN PLANS FOR EU ARMY COMMAND CENTRE LEAKED AHEAD OF BREXIT VOTE

The European Commission had been keeping the plans in a sealed room, which could only be entered by a small number of EU political and security committee ambassadors, leaving all electronics at the door.

However, one individual managed to take notes and leak them to The Times. It was revealed that in terms of how the EU functions, “security and defence [are] where a step change is most urgent”.

Federica Mogherini, head of foreign policy in the EU, has allegedly spent years preparing the plans, conveniently due to be discussed by EU leaders just one week after Britain’s referendum.

The plans will, of course, be seen as a major power grab, and an incursion on national sovereignty and the effectiveness of NATO in the lead up to the Brexit vote – thus the secrecy.

The UK vetoed similar proposals in 2011, and David Cameron and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) continue to deny an EU army is possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Ms. Federica Mogherini; in the words of my late grandmother., "the horse is already out of the barn", so PLEASE, cut the bovine excrement and tell the truth to the British people.

In making the decision about the Brexit next month, they need, and deserve, to be fully informed of what the EU is planning.

IF you don't think Brits can handle the truth, perhaps you really need to resign from your position, and right the heck now.

GOVERNMENTS TURN TO COMMERCIAL SPYWARE TO INTIMIDATE DISSIDENTS

A number of companies in the United States are training foreign law enforcement and intelligence officials to code their own surveillance tools. In many cases these tools are able to circumvent security measures like encryption. Some countries are using them to watch dissidents. Others are using them to aggressively silence and punish their critics, inside and outside their borders.

“There’s no substantial regulation,” said Bill Marczak, a senior fellow at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, who has been tracking the spread of spyware around the globe. “Any government who wants spyware can buy it outright or hire someone to develop it for you. And when we see the poorest countries deploying spyware, it’s clear money is no longer a barrier.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a menacing trend, and one which I do not see getting any better soon.

But intelligent people need to be made to understand that you never blog, email, or communicate with your cell phones, unless that communication is absolutely vanilla, because despotic governments (including that of the US) will use anything you type or say against you, to further and perpetuate their own ends.

We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level…The global war on terrorism…is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. They say Muslims are terrorists…they’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear…The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.

Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton TO BE INDICTED – Breaking News!

ver the weekend, a writer for the liberal Huffington Post reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) will pursue a criminal indictment against Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Frank Hugenard, a scientist, public speaker and freelance contributor, had his report removed by HuffPo editors and his account disabled without explanation. The piece was entitled, ““Hillary Clinton to be Indicted On Federal Racketeering Charges” and it quickly went viral before being removed.

Huguenard, who seems to support Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), claims to have sources within the FBI who say the agency will recommend racketeering charges against Hillary.

TURKEY WARNS GERMANY AHEAD OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE VOTE

Germany’s parliament votes Thursday (2 June) on a resolution that qualifies the massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces as “genocide”, despite a strong warning from Turkey. Drawn up by the ruling left-right coalition and the opposition Greens, the resolution entitled “Remembrance and commemoration of the genocide of Armenians and other Christian minorities in 1915 and 1916” also carries the contested word throughout the text. The vote comes just over a year after President Joachim Gauck became Germany’s highest ranking official to describe the massacre as a “genocide”, drawing a fierce response from Turkey.

Donald Trump is Right to Think that Something is ‘Very Fishy’ About the Vincent Foster Death

If Trump’s attorneys ever gave him the same quality of legal service that Fiske and Starr gave to the American people, I suspect that Trump would say: “Your Fired!” Instead of being condemned by people ignorant of the details of the Foster death, Trump should be applauded for having the political courage to say what is obvious to those who have studied the evidence, when so many others are afraid to do so. Donald Trump should use his unique opportunity to encourage the media to examine the important facts of this case with accuracy and thoroughness, and to challenge those who merely parrot the government’s position. Trump should not retreat from his position until somebody can provide plausible and satisfactory answers to the questions raised by the facts discussed in this article.

From Albrecht To Monsanto: A System Not Run For The Public Good Can Never Serve The Public Good

The following extract is from the 2011 lecture ‘Healthy Soils, Healthy People’ by Professor John Ikerd. The lecture discussed the legacy of renowned agronomist William Albrecht, who died in 1974.

“WE HAVE JUSTIFIED THE DEMISE OF FAMILY FARMS, DECAY OF RURAL COMMUNITIES, POLLUTION OF THE RURAL ENVIRONMENT, AND DEGRADATION OF SOIL HEALTH AS BEING NECESSARY TO PROVIDE FOOD SECURITY FOR THE NATION. THESE JUSTIFICATIONS ARE NO LONGER VALID OR ACCEPTABLE… AN AGRICULTURE DRIVEN BY ECONOMICS FAILED TO PROVIDE FOR THE HEALTH OF THE SOIL OR THE HEALTH OF PEOPLE. THE PROBLEMS WE ARE FACING TODAY ARE THE CONSEQUENCE OF TOO MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING SCIENTISTS, PURSUING THEIR NARROW SELF-INTERESTS WITHOUT CONSIDERING THE CONSEQUENCE OF THEIR ACTIONS ON THE REST OF SOCIETY AND THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY… THE PURSUIT OF INDIVIDUAL, IMPERSONAL SELF-INTERESTS – NOT THE LONG RUN INTERESTS OF SOCIETY OR HUMANITY.” – PROFESSOR JOHN IKERD

“Networks are Colluding” to Declare Clinton the Overall Winner Before California Polls Close

When a grown man tells you he is about to start trouble, believe him.

What followed, if Matthews is to be taken at his word, is clear evidence that television networks are colluding together to call the primary for Hillary Clinton before she reaches the delegates needed to claim victory. By doing so, they will absolutely suppress the vote in the final states that will be cast ballots in the Democratic primary. Even by mentioning it now, that the networks have already set the date and time they are calling the race for Hillary, what Matthews has done runs the very real risk of suppressing voter turnout. It’s disgusting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is one thing to declare Trump the GOP nominee when he is so far in front, but the fact is that absent the bought-and-paid-for superdelegates, Hillary and Bernie are very close together with Bernie gaining.

An Insider’s Look at the Dulles 9/11 Video

The strongest evidence linking the alleged hijackers to 9/11 was a video said to be from the closed circuit TV (CCTV) system at Dulles International Airport in Washington DC. The video was not made available until the day before the 9/11 Commission Report was released, in 2004, and it helped to pave the way for widespread acceptance of the official account. Since the other evidence against the accused hijackers was dubious and suspiciously convenient for the FBI, which provided it, the Dulles video should be examined closely.

Doing so has led some independent 9/11 investigators to conclude that the Dulles video contains “no information to link its images to AA 77.” Reasons include that:

None of the Dulles airport staff remembered seeing the alleged hijackers at the airport
Dulles had over 300 cameras but no footage was released except for portions of this one video (and no video was available from the other airports)
The alleged Dulles video contains no date, time stamp, or camera identification
The video was shot at a rate of 30 frames per second (fps), which the investigators said is not typical of CCTV videos
The video appears to be an edited composite of shots taken from different angles

Bernie Sanders’ Sick Utopia: The Malicious Myth of “Democratic” Socialism

All of history has proven that the effects of socialism are always and everywhere mass impoverishment; the destruction of civil liberties; tyrannical government; a population dependent on the state for survival; and the enrichment of the ruling class. Everyone is equally impoverished while the political elite live high on the hog, whether it is the Soviet Union, African socialism, Latin American socialism, or any other kind of socialism. At best, socialism turns people into spoiled children constantly demanding more and more freebies at the expense of . . . . who knows? At worst, it becomes a totalitarian nightmare where dissenters are mass murdered by the millions, as was the case with twentieth-century socialism all over the world.

Armed Citizens Saving Police Officers

There is NO evidence to support the assertion that law enforcement officers are put at risk by law-abiding citizens carrying concealed firearms in their car. There are no studies, even ones with twisted statistics, that draw this conclusion. How can that be?

We can, on the other hand, offer numerous examples of armed citizens coming to the aid of officers in peril...

US Forces on Frontlines in New Iraqi Kurdish Offensive

As Iraqi Kurdistan’s Peshmerga launches a new offensive just east of the major ISIS city of Mosul, witnesses on the ground reported US troops loading into armored vehicles and heading eastward, toward the front lines. The Pentagon refused to confirm where the troops were headed.

The Pentagon would only describe it as an “advise and assist operation to help Kurdish Peshmerga forces.” It is noteworthy that the troops warned reporters present not to take pictures, after similar pictures emerged of US troops embedded with Syrian Kurdish forces, sparking a row with Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at commondreams.org, on 18 April, 2016:

Signaling further escalation of U.S. military force in Iraq, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced Monday that 217 additional troops would be deployed to Iraq and that the U.S. will also be supplying Apache helicopters and millions in aid to Kurdish Peshmerga forces in an effort to fight ISIS. "The 217 additional forces will be a mixture of advisers, and troops providing protection for other forces, aviation support and fire support," reports the Hill, citing Pentagon sources. "They will increase the authorized troop level in Iraq from 3,870 to 4,087."

During the announcement, no mention was made of President Obama's repeated vows that the U.S. would never have "boots on the ground" in a combat operation in Iraq again. The news is unsurprising to many, particularly those critics who have noted the steady mission creep of U.S. forces in Iraq in the four and half years since the Iraq War was declared officially over in December 2011. But the announcement marks a milestone: it is the first time that officials have not attempted to argue that an escalation of force in Iraq does not break President Obama's insistent promises that ground troops would not be deployed for a combat operation in Iraq. President Obama defended his actions with this claim when he was criticized for starting the current escalation of U.S. military force in Iraq with a deployment of special forces in 2014.

The gentleman in the Oval Office, President Obama, has two official titles; those of President and Commander-in-Chief. But his presidency has the dubious distinction of holding another unofficial, but completely true, third title: Liar-in-Chief.

This makes any statement this President says about any issue, foreign or domestic, completely null and void; you simply cannot believe a word which he, or any of his Administration members, may say, period, end of discussion.

Christopher Bollyn: How Israel Created the Fiend for the War on Terror

The War on Terror is essentially an Israeli war strategy. It was first promoted on the world stage by Benjamin Netanyahu and Menachem Begin (of the terrorist Likud party) at the Jerusalem Conference hosted by the Netanyahu Institute in July 1979.

According to the War on Terror doctrine advocated by Netanyahu, "Islamic terrorists" attack Israel because it is a Western state with Western values. The West, Netanyahu says, is the real target so the U.S. must lead the West in waging a global War on Terror to destroy Islamic terrorists and the regimes that support them. This is exactly what the United States has done since 9/11, at incredible expense to its own population, leaving a trail of devastated nations in its wake.

The Israeli construct was designed to get the U.S. to destroy the enemies of the Zionist state. The Israelis developed the War on Terror construct and then created the Islamic opponent, al Qaida, to serve as the antithesis – the virulent enemy of the West. The real purpose of al Qaida, and its subsequent iterations like ISIS, is to be a moving target used to destabilize and destroy sovereign countries, like Syria, while sustaining the illusion of an Islamic antithesis, posing a mortal threat to the security of the West. The Zionist-controlled media is the essential element in selling the fraudulent War on Terror to the public.

Huffington Post Removes Article Claiming Hillary Clinton Will Be Indicted

The liberal publication Huffington Post removed an article on its website Sunday claiming that the FBI plans to pursue an indictment against Hillary Clinton on federal racketeering charges.

But the article link now directs to a page that says “404” with a frownie face and the message “This is so embarrassing” after Huffington Post took the piece down Sunday.

A note at the bottom of the original article explains that “This post is hosted on the Huffington Post’s Contributor platform. Contributors control their own work and post freely to our site. If you need to flag this entry as abusive, send us an email.”

The Huffington Post’s media team and also HuffPo senior politics editor Sam Stein did not return requests for comment as of press time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FBI took over the RICO case against the Clinton Foundation after a Clinton-appointed judge tossed Larry Klayman's lawsuit out. My first thought was "Here is another FBI cover-up", but there is another possibility.

Hillary has become a major liability to the system. Charging her with racketeering with regard to the Clinton Foundation would eject her from the Presidential race and public life as a whole without risking the exposure of possible espionage in connection with her private email server!

THE UK IS SELLING RECORD QUANTITIES OF ARMS – INCLUDING MISSILES, BOMBS AND GRENADES – TO COUNTRIES LISTED BY THE FOREIGN OFFICE AS HAVING DUBIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS RECORDS

The UK is selling record quantities of arms – including missiles, bombs and grenades – to countries listed by the Foreign Office as having dubious human rights records. Several have been accused of war crimes or suppressing popular protest.

More than £3bn of British-made weaponry was licensed for export last year to 21 of the Foreign Office’s 30 “human rights priority countries” – those identified by the government as being where “the worst, or greatest number of, human rights violations take place”, or “where we judge that the UK can make a real difference”. Listed countries which last year bought British arms and military equipment include:

? Saudi Arabia, which has been accused of perpetrating war crimes in Yemen;

? Bahrain, which used troops to quell protests following the Arab spring;

? Burundi, which is being investigated by the UN for human rights violations;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These companies sell their weapons to countries where the leadership is just to the right of Attila the Hun on human rights, and then expect no human rights violations will ensue from those sales, and the use of these weapons against civilians?!?

Talk about hypocrisy, writ large!!

The cold, hard, reality is that these sales are all about the money; the leadership of these weapons companies have had their consciences surgically removed, before accepting their positions, and their business philosophy is "profits uber alles".

UK TO STOCKPILE TANKS IN EASTERN EUROPE – REPORT

The British military may soon start stockpiling tanks and other heavy equipment in Eastern Europe as part of NATO's military beef up close to Russia's border. The decision may come at the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw in July.

Citing a threat to the Baltic States and Poland, the North-Atlantic alliance plans to deploy as many as 4,000 additional troops in those countries. The initial plan was for the US to provide half, with Germany and the UK shouldering the rest of the cost. However, last week the Wall Street Journal reported that Washington would only provide one 1,000-strong battalion and wanted the European members of the alliance to spend more on their own defense.

Webmaster's Commentary:

POLICE ARE SECRETLY USING 'VACCINE' TO SPY ON COMMUNITY EVENTS, PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments (VACCINE) is co-led by Purdue and Rutgers University. The above video reveals how eager university professors and students are to help DHS spy on Americans.

Just like 'STINGRAY', police and Fusion Centers are secretly using VACCINE to spy on Americans.

"In 2012, VACCINE entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Ohio Fusion Center, managed by the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) and Ohio Homeland Security."

Keeping VACCINE a secret is what police and Fusion Center spying is all about. Check out the excerpt from page 26 of VACCINE's 2013 Annual Report.

"VACCINE has a well-established process for entering into Memorandums of Understanding and Non-Disclosure Agreements to ensure protection of the parties and data involved."
DHS is running a non-profit to spy on Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that, when it comes to spying on perfectly innocent Americans, it is very painfully apparent that the concept of "to protect and serve" has been thrown, collectively, under the bus, by police units all across this country.

Oh, and the Surveillance Goons have decided to destroy the first and 4th Amendments to the Constitution while they're at it.

Welcome to Amerika, my friends: land of the surveilled, and the home of the cowed.

Cleveland police in riot gear won’t wear body cameras during RNC

Many Cleveland police officers will not be wearing body cameras if protests turn violent during the Republican National Convention, officials said.

Police officials have told officers that a host of logistical issues, including an inability to attach the cameras to police riot gear, means officers will not be able to wear the devices.

The department says officers will use other methods to record police interactions with protesters and the public during the convention. But the head of a police union and the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio expressed concern that the officers who will be thrust in the most volatile situations will not be wearing a device that is a deterrent for both violence against police and officer misconduct.

“To have those body cameras and not allow us to wear them is absolutely irresponsible,” Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absolute absence of) shock!!

And this decision also telegraphs, loudly and clearly, from where much of the violence is expected to come, and it won't be coming, originally, from the protesters!!

DOZENS SHOT OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AS THE COLLAPSE OF CHICAGO ACCELERATES

Chaos and violence threaten to spiral out of control in America’s third largest city, and nobody seems to have any idea how to solve the problem. After decades of control by the radical left, many parts of the “Windy City” have become rotting, decaying, gang-infested hellholes. Just like Detroit, the city of Chicago is rapidly becoming a joke to the rest of the world, but a horribly corrupt political culture likely stands in the way of any type of major reform any time soon. And just like much of the rest of the nation, a spirit of violence and civil unrest is rising in Chicago. So far this year, the number of shootings in Chicago is up 50 percent compared to the same time period last year, and that was before we even got to Memorial Day weekend. As of Sunday morning, at least 40 people had already been shot, and authorities were bracing for even more violence as the holiday weekend stretched on…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Chicago's Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has been utterly impotent, in terms of fixing this.

IF he thought his becoming Mayor of Chicago would improve his CV, in terms of running for State Senator, National Senator, or Congressman from Illinois, his performance (or lack thereof), has really bitten him in a very tender portion of the human anatomy, and that means he has become an intense liability, and embarrassment, for the Democratic Party.

VA COPS ATTACK 71-YEAR-OLD VIETNAM VETERAN FOR WALKING THROUGH METAL DETECTOR WITHOUT SHOWING ID

Video surfaced this Memorial Day weekend showing police officers wrapping their arms around the neck of a 71-year-old Vietnam veteran and tackling him to the ground before handcuffing him inside a Veterans Administration clinic in El Paso.

His crime: He allegedly walked through a metal detector without first showing identification while having something on (or in) him that set the alarm off.

However, Jose Oliva said he placed his identification into the bucket with the rest of his belongings that were in his pocket to be screened.

And even if he didn’t, there was no need to abuse him as they did.

However, the VA police officers were found to have done nothing wrong, according to the Office of Security and Law Enforcement (OS&LE) and Law Enforcement Training Center, which oversees VA police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

Who the flip are these monsters, who consider it perfectly normal to choke and cuff an older Vet, who thought what he was doing was the absolutely correct protocol for entering the hospital for treatment?!?

Here’s How to Honor the Fallen this Memorial Day: By Exposing the Warmongering Lies of Govt

By Claire Bernish

Displaying flags and placing flowers on the graves of military members might be two of the more traditional Memorial Day methods of showing tribute to those who have fallen in battle; but perhaps a new tradition must be initiated — one that would constitute the highest form of respect. It’s time, beginning with Memorial Day 2016, to prevent any further unnecessary deaths by exposing the lies of the American empire in corporate and defense profiteering as the now-exclusive driving factors behind its push for war on all fronts...

How Russia Is Preparing for WWIII

So let us now examine the Russian reaction to Empire’s stance.

First, the Russians want to make darn sure that the Americans do not give in into the illusion that a full-scale war in Europe would be like WWII which saw the US homeland only suffer a few, tiny, almost symbolic, attacks by the enemy. Since a full scale war in Europe would threaten the very existence of the Russian state and nation, the Russians are now taking measures to make darn sure that, should that happen, the US would pay an immense price for such an attack.

Second, the Russians are now evidently assuming that a conventional threat from the West might materialize in the foreseeable future. They are therefore taking the measures needed to counter that conventional threat.

Third, since the USA appears to be dead set into deploying an anti-ballistic missile system not only in Europe, but also in the Far East, the Russians are taking the measures to both defeat and bypass this system.

The Russian effort is a vast and a complex one, and it covers almost every aspect of Russian force planning, but there are four examples which, I think, best illustrate the Russian determination not to allow a 22 June 1941 to happen again:

The Sea Gypsy Philosopher: How DOES the world work?

The main tool that these rulers use is Secrecy. We are programmed early in life through our Conformity Indoctrination Factories (schools) to believe that people in leadership positions achieved their prominence because they were smarter and nobler than the rest of us. But in fact, most of the time those who ascend up through the Malignant Overlord food chain, do so because they are more ruthless and soul-less than those below them.

Here is a perfect example of that secrecy in action. My bachelor’s degree was in Political Science, so I studied historical events and world leaders quite thoroughly. But because almost all of the books that I had access to depict the West as an indisputable force for good, I could not find contrary evidence and then make my own decision.

Winston Churchill is the poster boy for this. Here was this supposed noble statesman and courageous cornerstone of British righteousness. That is how he was depicted to me by all of my professors. And that is how I would continue to perceive him if it were not for the Internet.

Clinton has been burying emails since she was First Lady

While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal recordkeeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position.

In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server.

The massive hole in White House archives covered a critical two-year period — 1996 to 1998 — when Republicans and special prosecutor Ken Starr were subpoenaing White House e-mails.

Utility Smart Meters – A Probable Terrorist Connection Unveiled?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

All throughout the USA—plus globally—informed and concerned citizens are refusing AMI smart meters for electric, natural gas, and municipal water utility services, which are provided using a Marxist-draconian-like edict and rollout by utility companies that want to cash in on the funding they can receive from the feds to institute what amounts to an apparent ‘first leg’ push for the global smart grid and Internet of Things (IoT).

The IoT is designed to track everyone’s every interaction at all times—in your car (transponders and E-Z Pass); on your computers—specifically Windows 10 backdoors that apparently allow the feds access to your computer; through your ‘smart’ home appliances—especially TVs; plus a human RFID microchip surgically imbedded somewhere inside your body to enforce a cashless society, tracking, and an obvious ultimate control mechanism over every human...

3 Disgusting Reasons Why You Should Never Trust Food Labels

By Claire Bernish

You cannot rely on food producers to put food labels on products in a sufficient enough manner to describe what you’re actually buying, and — in the case of meat and animal products — what you’re allowing to continue through your purchase.

1. “Progressive Farming. Family Style,” pig ‘producer,’ The Maschhoffs, slogan boasts — but if the Hormel supplier truly believes what the pigs it raises go through is family-oriented, the company could easily qualify for psychological assistance. Disturbingly, though, The Maschhoffs are far from alone...

Mainstream Media and Government Remain Silent as Activists From All Over the US Deliver Aid to Flint

By Claire Bernish

Lead contaminates the water in Flint, Michigan, and as you’ve probably heard, the state government in conjunction with emergency managers needlessly endangered the lives of every resident in the city by poisoning its water supply with toxic lead — for a savings amounting to about $80 to $100 per day. And while the Flint Water Crisis has largely disappeared from headlines in both mainstream and alternative media, residents are no closer to receiving the most basic human right with any consistency.

In fact, the situation, in many ways, continues to worsen as the government not only originally failed to keep informed residents of the economically-depressed city what’s being done to solve their crisis, but failed to provide adequate supply for their daily lives...

Hillary Clinton’s Continuing Lack of Interest in Cover-up of Vince Foster’s Murder

Internal documents from the office of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr confirm FBI agents and others undermined the Vince Foster death investigation. Accuracy in Media had been following the Foster investigation in the 1990s, and Reed Irvine suspected investigators had no evidence that Foster’s car was at Fort Marcy Park when he was already dead. As Hillary Clinton moves closer to securing the Democratic Party nomination for president, her critics and supporters might wonder why she has no apparent interest in the ongoing cover-up of the murder of her close friend and confidant.

Video of Bernie Sanders ‘Where the Hood At?’ Intro Is a Hoax

As Americablog’s John Aravosis now notes, there’s some doubt as to whether Sanders actually did take the stage to the booming sounds of DMX‘s “Where the Hood At?”, but we’ve got fairly definitive proof that it was a hoax.

Aravosis notes that there’s different music used on different videos of the event, but we’ve got the original feed, plus an extemporaneous video, which show that there was, in fact, no music played over Bernie’s intro. Here’s the DMX version, followed by the Fox 10 Phoenix feed, followed by cellphone video that was shot from the crowd:

As Silence, Defiance Goes On Over Dishonest Edit, Katie Couric’s Proud Legacy Taking Serious Hit

Couric, who turns 60 next year, may now be staring at the end of her career, and not exactly the kind of ending that another icon in Peyton Manning just enjoyed (See: going out as a winner on the world’s biggest stage). Why? Because the news that broke this week around the deceptive edit to end all deceptive edits is not the kind of thing that one at this stage of her career (See: on the downside) can ever recover from if credibility means anything anymore.

Quick summary: Couric signs on as an executive producer, host and narrator of a documentary titled Under the Gun. The doc is produced and directed by Stephanie Soechtig, an anti-gun activist. And at what’s supposed to be a telling moment of the movie, Couric asks a group of Virginia gun owners the following question: “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

Britain’s Secret Drug-Running Operations in Colombia

Since the 1980s, when Britain’s Special Air Service (SAS) and Special Boat Service started operating in Colombia, special forces on all sides have been killing rival drug gangs and even counter-narcotics police units. This amounts to a proxy drug-smuggling network, which Britain has aided for decades. Cocaine is a huge industry, worth some $60 billion per annum. Coke is mainly a middle-class drug, used by politicians, models, film stars, and people in music, media, and other industries. More importantly, coke and other drug monies are untraceable and can be used for military black ops. A great deal is known about the US Central Intelligence Agency’s s role in drug running. Alfred McCoy’s The Politics of Heroin , Gary Webb’s Dark Alliance, and Douglas Valentine’s The Strength of the Wolf are vital exposés. Much less is known about MI6’s role.

Britain’s center-left Guardian newspaper has apologized after it emerged one of its reporters had been fabricating interviews and falsely claiming to have been at events he wrote about.

Goldman Sachs Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving... To The Clintons

By now we all know that Goldman Sachs is the gift that keeps on giving to the Clintons. Whether it's paying millions out for speeches, investing in family member's failing hedge fund ventures, or donating hundreds of thousands to the Clinton Foundation, Goldman seems to be keeping a close relationship with the family.

What's a more fun development to watch (other than to see Lloyd Blankfein lose money invested with a Clinton son-in-law) is how persistent The Intercept is being with Hillary about Goldman. Every chance it gets, The Intercept has a reporter asking Clinton about Goldman related items, and of course they never get an answer.

Earlier this year The Intercept caught up with Hillary and asked if the transcripts of the speeches given to Goldman would be released. Clinton's response was just to laugh of course, because as we all know, those will never be released... on purpose anyway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that Clinton's very wounded presidential campaign is about to become....more wounded.

Bernie Sanders may well be right, to contest this all the way; by November, Clinton may have to "retire" from public life, if certain revelations come forward, and are proven true.

Pleading for Peace in Chicago: ‘We Could Be Looking at a Blood Bath’

During Memorial Day weekend, this city reopens its Lake Michigan beaches, regular fireworks displays start at Navy Pier and the downtown streets and spruced-up Riverwalk are crowded with tourists.

But the holiday weekend is often seen here as the start of heightened violence, as well. That has been particularly worrying this year to community leaders and city officials, as they grapple with a rise in gun violence that has traumatized some neighborhoods and left city officials searching for new ways to subdue street crime.

“If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath,” said the Rev. Corey Brooks, a pastor on the city’s South Side, a mostly African-American area where some of the shootings have been concentrated. “If something doesn’t happen, I fear that we’re potentially looking at one of the worst summers we’ve ever had.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though, from a standpoint of concretely and effectively addressing this issue, Rom Emanuel has been a colossal, epic fail as mayor of this city.

The alleged "educational" system in the city has utterly failed these kids; so have the drug and gang policies, at the state, city, and Federal levels.

Urban gangs give these kids the opportunity to make money, selling drugs, and give them a sense of identity which sometimes their (frequently broken) families can not.

I have to wonder; how well can these kids read and write a standard English?!? How are their math skills?!? And if they don't have proficiencies in reading and math, who is going to want to hire them, and for what kinds of jobs?

How many "shovel ready" jobs exist in Chicago which the construction unions will allow unskilled, non-union members take?!?

There is a hideous overlap of problems here, and I hope that the community can find effective coping strategies to keep the city calm this summer, but were I a betting woman, I would not bet on that happening.

Venezuela Drifts Into New Territory: Hunger, Blackouts and Government Shutdown

The courts? Closed most days. The bureau to start a business? Same thing. The public defender’s office? That’s been converted into a food bank for government employees.

Step by step, Venezuela has been shutting down.

This country has long been accustomed to painful shortages, even of basic foods. But Venezuela keeps drifting further into uncharted territory.

In recent weeks, the government has taken what may be one of the most desperate measures ever by a country to save electricity: A shutdown of many of its offices for all but two half-days each week.

But that is only the start of the country’s woes. Electricity and water are being rationed, and huge areas of the country have spent months with little of either.

Many people cannot make international calls from their phones because of a dispute between the government and phone companies over currency regulations and rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot see how this can ultimately end well, or that Maduro will be able to remain in power that much longer.

But I do hope that the government which replaces that of Maduro will be able to meet the needs of the suffering Venezuelan people, and as quickly as humanly possible.

ANALYSISThe Zombie Voter Apocalypse: California Refuses to Admit Its Voter Fraud Problem

Hollywood has always loved making films about the walking dead, but in Southern California it appears they have a real life problem with “zombie” voters.

An investigation by CBSLA2 and KCAL9 found that hundreds of deceased persons are still on voter registration rolls in the area, and that many of these names have been voting for years in Los Angeles.

Julita Abutin, died in 2006 but voted in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014.

For example, John Cenkner died in 2003, according to Social Security Administration records, yet he voted in the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2010 elections. His daughter told the station that she was “astounded” and couldn’t “understand how anybody” could get away with this.

The investigation revealed that 265 deceased persons voted in Southern California, 215 of them in Los Angeles County. Thirty-two were repeat voters, with eight posthumously-cast ballots each. One woman who died in 1988 has been voting for 26 years, including in the 2014 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

California's problem is hardly unique to the American voting process.

Silencing the United States as It Prepares for War

The breathtaking record of perfidy is so mutated in the public mind, wrote the late Harold Pinter, that it “never happened …Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. It didn’t matter … “. Pinter expressed a mock admiration for what he called “a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.”

Take Obama. As he prepares to leave office, the fawning has begun all over again. He is “cool”. One of the more violent presidents, Obama gave full reign to the Pentagon war-making apparatus of his discredited predecessor. He prosecuted more whistleblowers – truth-tellers – than any president. He pronounced Chelsea Manning guilty before she was tried. Today, Obama runs an unprecedented worldwide campaign of terrorism and murder by drone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Mr. Pilger that what Donald Trump has been criticising, and quite reasonably, are the effects of illegal immigration on this country, in terms of the financial burden it places on the US.

But on that issue of alleged "choice" of candidates, he is absolutely correct. The Kabuki-like process of American elections gives the people of this country the "illusion" that they, through the process, are at least somewhat in control of the national dialogue; they are not, in any meaningful way, whatsoever.

It is the corporations, who fund the election processes, at state and national levels, who ultimately chose the candidates.

And those candidates are vetted, not on their ability to lift the American people up, or address their needs and concerns; they are vetted on how well they can keep those promises to those corporations which fund them, and that - my friend - is the bottom line here.

Monsanto Loses Major PCBs Poisoning Lawsuit, Forced to Pay $46 Million to Victims

Three plaintiffs have been awarded $17.5 million in damages caused by Monsanto and three other companies for negligence in the production of PCBs.
A jury voting 10-2 in St. Louis found Monsanto, Pfizer, Solutia, and Pharmacia must pay the plaintiffs and assessed an additional $29 million in punitive damages against Monsanto for its continued selling of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, after the compound had been banned, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Plaintiffs in this case — three of nearly 100 involved in litigation, some of whom died — said they developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from exposure to PCBs.

“All of us could pretty much agree that Monsanto was negligent,” said juror Nathan Nevius in the Post-Dispatch.

Gates Foundation 'doubling down' on Common Core

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation says it is "doubling down" on its efforts to help teachers adapt to the Common Core education standards.

"Far too many districts report that identifying or developing Common Core-aligned materials is a challenge, meaning that teachers spend their time adapting or creating curriculum, developing lessons, and searching for supplemental materials," Gates Foundation CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann writes in an open letter. "So, we're doubling down on our efforts to make sure teachers have what they need to make the most of their unique capabilities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

reported at breitbart.com, last year:

Parents of high-ability students are demanding their San Francisco school board restore their courses for high achievers, which have been set aside while schools in the district switched over to the Common Core standards. Changes to the curriculum have included pushing Algebra I out of middle school and into the high school freshman year, as well as eliminating honors classes in both middle school and ninth grade, reports SFGate. Additionally, the evaluation process used by the district to identify high achievers—GATE (Gifted and Talented Education Program)—has been suspended since that system relied on state standardized tests, which were also postponed during the switch to Common Core. “The angry parents, however, accused the district of dumbing down instruction and ignoring or holding back smart students to focus on the needs of those at the bottom end of the achievement gap,” says a news report about a meeting of parents with the school board. Academic standards experts—some of whom wrote the old, highly-acclaimed California standards—warned several years ago that Common Core would “dumb down” curricula in the name of social justice and closing the achievement gap between minority and white students.

That achievement gap addressed in the above article can be successfully addressed in many other ways.

But the cold, hard reality here is that when people do not learn critical thinking, or have the ability to analyze information, they will swallow, literally, anything the government has to say, and that is why the Bill & Melinda Gates are "doubling down" on shoving this program down kids', and their parents' throats.

A passive, medically doped up American population will not issue even a murmur of dissent, no matter how economically and soul-crippling those decisions coming out of DC may be which affect them, and that is the ultimate goal of Common Core; the creation of a populace unable to think, and totally accepting of every governmental edict, no matter how evil or morally wrong.

Secret Text in Senate Bill Would Give FBI Warrantless Access to Email Records

A PROVISION SNUCK INTO the still-secret text of the Senate’s annual intelligence authorization would give the FBI the ability to demand individuals’ email data and possibly web-surfing history from their service providers without a warrant and in complete secrecy.

If passed, the change would expand the reach of the FBI’s already highly controversial national security letters. The FBI is currently allowed to get certain types of information with NSLs — most commonly, information about the name, address, and call data associated with a phone number or details about a bank account.

Since a 2008 Justice Department legal opinion, the FBI has not been allowed to use NSLs to demand “electronic communication transactional records,” such as email subject lines and other metadata, or URLs visited.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent people already know NOT to say anything in their emails or Facebook posts, that is not the most vanilla information possible to share.

And they know that their "on line behaviour" is already tracked by the Federal government.

In my case, under the First Amendment to the Constitution, I read a lot of the foreign press in English, because it is there that one can generally discern most clearly, what the US government is up to. And to date, my reading cannot be construed as "illegal", under the First Amendment.

And the bad guys have already encrypted their electronics communications to the degree that they have become impenetrable to Federal agencies' attempts to break them.

So what is this about?!? Most likely, gleaning trade and proprietary information for their corporate buddies, to enhance their financial and professional "edge".

FLASHBACK - ‘Like inviting spies over to dinner’: Cyber experts are stunned by the companies Hillary Clinton hired

After she left the State Department in 2013, Clinton — now under fire for using a personal email account for work-related correspondences while serving as America’s top diplomat — hired at least three different private firms to manage different aspects of her server.

The firms included Platte River Networks, a Denver-based firm that hosted her server; SECNAP, which sold her a firewall program known as CloudJacket SMB to detect hackers; and Datto, Inc., a cloud storage company that backed up Clinton’s emails in case her server crashed.

The companies, which are relatively unknown, have been described by some cyber security experts as odd choices for such a high-level public figure.

“I’ve never heard of SECNAP or CloudJacket SMB, which says a lot right there,” Michael Borohovski, CEO and founder of TinFoil Security, told Business Insider. “But the ‘SMB’ in ‘CloudJacket SMB’ means Small Medium Business, which Hillary Clinton is not.”

US Pads Defense Industry Profits By Arming Both Sides In Conflict

From the Philippines, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Nicaragua, right through Korea, Vietnam and Grenada, to Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Palestine today, the United States’ blatant hypocrisy is on full display, as the citizens of those nations paid or continue to pay a high price for daring to be independent when the U.S. wanted their natural resources, or who had the temerity to democratically elect leadership that was too far to the left to accommodate U.S. corporate interests. And in the case of Palestine, being on the opposite end of a powerful political lobby causes their suffering at the hands of the U.S.

Obama- Voter Fraud Not A Common Crime?

Obama says, “Voter fraud is not a ‘real problem’ because nobody wakes up and says, I’m going to go vote in somebody else’s name”.

That must be why as a community organizer he taught others how to go trick others into early registration and voting. The little acorn organizers that fell from the Obama Manchurian Candidate tree learned how to sign up Mickey, Minnie, Jimmy Johns and even how to revive the dead to get up and go vote. They learned how to bus people to the booths with lies, lunch and liberal promises.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is already launching the "There is no vote fraud problem" BS ahead of Hillary trying to steal the White House in November!

Kenneth Starr heaps praise on Bill Clinton

Kenneth Starr, the former independent counsel whose investigation of Bill Clinton in the 1990s led to his impeachment, now heaps praise on the former president, according to The New York Times.

“His genuine empathy for human beings is absolutely clear,” Starr said of Clinton during a panel discussion at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

“It is powerful, it is palpable and the folks of Arkansas really understood that about him — that he genuinely cared. The ‘I feel your pain’ is absolutely genuine.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If anyone doubted that Ken Starr's "investigation" into Whitewater was a cover-up, this should settle the matter!

Emails Show TPP 'Collusion' Between Big Banks & Obama Administration

A series of emails released Friday show what activists describe as "collusion" between U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and Wall Street executives to push for the passage the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The emails (pdf), obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the group Rootstrikers, which organizes against money in politics, include a message to Froman from a managing director at Goldman Sachs urging him to push for "robust commitments" on Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions—which allow private corporations to sue governments for perceived loss of profits—to be included in the divisive trade deal.

"I wanted to underscore how important it is for the financial services industry to get robust commitments on ISDS in the agreement... denying our industry the same rights as enjoyed by every other sector would be terribly unfortunate," the email states.

25 Rules of Disinformation, Propaganda, “PSYOPS”, Debunking Techniques

By Kristan T. Harris

25 Rules of Disinformation – Possible rules of Operation Mockingbird

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the “How dare you!” gambit.

Feds fight to prevent Clinton deposition in email case

The Obama administration is trying to prevent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from being deposed in an ongoing open records case connected to her use of a private email server.

Late Thursday evening, the Justice Department filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.

Clinton Investigator Goes Public, Reveals Sick Hillary Secret to Entire Nation

Citizens United founder Floyd Brown made a bombshell admission Tuesday about the way current Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton targeted him during the 1990s over his attempts to investigate her husband’s sexual abuse allegations.

Specifically, Clinton’s minions recorded Brown talking about the death of Suzanne Coleman, who reportedly died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the back of the head while allegedly pregnant with Bill Clinton’s baby.

State Dept IG Finds Hillary Clinton Violated Government Records Act and Refused to Speak to Investigators

Politico reports that the State Department inspector general has concluded that Hillary Clinton violated State’s record keeping protocols. The finding is contained in a much anticipated report provided to Congress today.

Significantly, the report also reveals that Clinton and her top aides at State — Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, Huma Abedin, and possibly others — refused to cooperate with the IG’s investigation despite the IG’s requests that they submit to interviews.

The report is devastating, although it transparently strains to soften the blow. For example, it concludes that State’s “longstanding systemic weaknesses” in record keeping “go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State.” Yet, it cannot avoid finding that Clinton’s misconduct is singular in that she, unlike her predecessors, systematically used private e-mail for the purpose of evading record keeping requirements.

Vaccine Thimerosal Preservative Causes Autism. CDC Forced to Release Proof They Knew…

Over 100 Freedom of Records Act (FOIA) requests have finally forced the euphemist US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to admit a widely used vaccine preservative is the equivalent of a neurological armageddon.

With help from PhD Scientist and Biochemist, Brian Hooker, the agency has finally had to reveal that they have known for years that thimerosal, which was banned in 1999, but still used in over 60 vaccines, causes autism. Robert F. Kennedy has been trying to alert the public of the same troublesome findings that Hooker has unveiled, but he is often dismissed, or worse, made into a media fool by the pharmaceutical industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There should be a class action law suit brought forward by the parents of every kid who got vaccines with thimerosal, and ultimately became autistic,against the CDC and the pharmaceutical companies which included Thimerosal in their vaccines, and sue them out of existence, for the damage they have caused.

Israeli Weapons Flow to Azerbaijan

In early April, as renewed fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region made headlines in Turkey, there was little talk of the crucial role of Israeli weapons in the clashes. Only the daily Hurriyet reported on Azerbaijan’s use of the Israeli Harop armed drone, which generated Armenian protests.

Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesperson Omer Celik summarized why the issue should be important to the press: “Azerbaijan’s battle is our battle; their martyrs are our martyrs.” Indeed, Azerbaijan consistently scores as Turkey’s closest friend in Turkish public opinion polls, while Israel maintains its status as a serious threat in the same polls.

The Senate Grew A Special Visa Program With Money Taken Out Of Veterans’ Pockets

The Senate used money from benefit cuts to military veterans in the 2016 budget to pay for the resettlement of an additional 3,000 Afghan interpreters in the United States. A dispute over a similar pay-for plan is behind the Judiciary Committee’s refusal to expand the program again in the 2017 budget.

The Special Immigrant Visa program allows Afghan interpreters who aide the U.S. government to get out of harm’s way by resettling in the United States, and last year the Senate authorized a major expansion of the program. The $336 million price tag of the expansion fell on U.S. military veterans in the form of increased pharmacy co-pays, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

“That’s bullshit,” former Army combat veteran Alex Plitsas told The DCNF. “Military families shouldn’t be paying for the SIV program through a pseudo tax. The program should be funded outright because of the service our interpreters rendered. This is infuriating.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely outrageous!

And a memo to the Senators who thought this was a good idea, to cut Veterans' benefits to pay for the SIV program: YOU'RE FIRED, COME NOVEMBER!!

Liar, liar! Clinton KNEW email was hacked

The State Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) delivered a sharp rebuke to Hillary Clinton yesterday, in a report that heavily criticized her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

But the report included more than evidence of Clinton’s bad judgment.

It proved she has been lying about her emails for months.

Despite repeated denials from Clinton that her emails were compromised, the OIG report concluded that she likely knew her server was hacked — and went to lengths to keep from reporting it.

Already, Clinton faces questions about her trustworthiness, with months of polling showing voters give her low marks for integrity.

Erdogan Unleashes More Threats on Europe as EU-Turkey Deal Falters

An historic deal between the European Union and Turkey detailing the administration of Syrian refugees continues to unravel amid concerns by Brussels regarding Ankara’s quickly deteriorating record on human rights.

Recently, European leaders nearly unanimously signaled an unwillingness to approve visa-free travel for Turkish residents within the Schengen zone, citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s persecution of domestic opposition and dissent. Europe’s decision to retreat from offering Turkey visa-free travel, a critical component of the EU-Turkey refugee negotiations, tipped Erdogan into a fit of rage on Tuesday.
Speaking at a World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Erdogan threatened to unleash a flood of refugees

Speaking at a World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Erdogan threatened to unleash a flood of refugees into Europe if the EU failed to approve his visa-free travel demands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A world Humanitarian summit being held in ...Istanbul, the capital of a country practicing serial genocide against Turkish Kurds; somehow, you have to appreciate the irony here!

But Erdogan appears to be falling apart, mentally and politically.

I think the next step in Turkey will be very dependent on what the Turkish army believes it needs to do to restore order in the country.

Judge Seals All Video Depositions In Clinton Email Case

A U.S. judge on Thursday ordered that all videotaped depositions in a lawsuit over Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s private email server remain sealed, The Hill newspaper reported.

In a brief order on Thursday evening, Judge Emmet Sullivan granted the request of lawyers for Clinton’s ex-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, who had worried that video clips of her interview could be used for political purposes, according to The Hill.

And Sullivan went further, ordering all videotaped depositions to remain sealed until he ordered otherwise, the newspaper said

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (complete) absence of surprise here!!

I have to wonder just what kind of "pressure" was applied in order to get this ruling.

And I certainly hope this judge doesn't get "depressed" (enough to pull an alleged suicide), because if he is unable to order these depositions opened, who else can order them open, and when?!?

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued and made famous).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The online shills are on overtime this weekend trying to stuff this can of worms back into the can. But they cannot refute the facts, so all they can do is shout insults and claim that anyone questioning the official story is causing pain to the Foster family.

BULL BISCUITS!

The people who murdered Vincent Foster and covered it up are causing all the pain!

Once again, here are the facts that cast doubt on the claim of suicide.

MPs warn voters being 'conned' as Brussels keeps plans for EU army secret until after referendum

British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.

Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.

Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army.

The backlash came as it emerged plans to move towards the creation of a European army are being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is so horrific about this plan for a unified, European Army that Brits are not supposed to know about it until the day AFTER the referendum next month?!?

IF I were a Brit, I would want to know, and right the heck now, what Brussels had in store for this Army, and what the British commitment to it would be.

Hillary has a NEW excuse on why she used her own private email server

Hillary told Chuck Todd today that she used her own personal email (she keeps saying ‘personal email’ because she’s spinning.

Yeah, that’s the new excuse.

"Significant Security Risks": State Department Says Clinton Broke Rules Using Private Email Server

An internal government watchdog has concluded Hillary Clinton broke government rules by using a private email server without approval while she was secretary of state. That was the key finding of a long-awaited report by the State Department inspector general. The report concluded that Clinton would not have been allowed to use a private server in her home had she asked department officials in charge of information security, because it posed “significant security risks.” This contradicts claims by Clinton that use of a home server was allowed and that no permission was needed.

ALAN GREENSPAN: VENEZUELA DECLARES MARTIAL LAW, AMERICA IS NEXT

Alan Greenspan issued a dire warning about the U.S. economy during an interview with Fox News on Thursday. Greenspan said that as Venezuela descends into martial law, the U.S. is heading in the same direction.

Greenspan warned that the U.S. has “a global problem of a shortage of productivity growth” which is leading it into an impending disaster.

Foxbusiness.com reports:

“What the Fed does at this particular stage is less important than what the markets are doing. And what the markets are beginning to show us is acceleration in money supply for the first time in a very long time… We have a global problem of a shortage in productivity growth and it’s not only the United States but it’s pretty much around the world and it’s being caused by the fact that the populations everywhere in the Western world, for example, are aging and we are not committing enough of our resources to fund that,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Long term economic growth cannot happen if decent jobs keep getting off-shored/outsourced; that is one aspect of the problem about which Greenspan is noticeably reluctant to speak.

If the guarantee of decent jobs after college doesn't pan out, women in long term relationships postpone, or avoid pregnancies completely; it is just that simple.

And I, for one, do not blame them; however, Greenspan seems to be waiving his finger at them, as though they were the problem, which they are not.

Rational people don't want to bring kids into this world unless they have some hope of adequately and decently taking care of them, because jobs are there with which to feed, clothe, and educate them.

JUDGE COMPARES DRUG WAR TO SLAVERY, BRAVELY REFUSES TO PUT CONVICTED DRUG FELON IN PRISON

It appears that America has awakened to the problem of mass incarceration–an issue underscored by the fact that the U.S. holds less than 5 percent of the world’s population but houses about 22 percent of the world’s prisoners. Congress is now making a token effort at criminal justice reform, including the reduction of mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent offenders, but even this faces opposition from the most fervent police state crusaders.

In the face of inaction, one New York judge is stepping outside the box to breathe life into a much-needed national debate. Judge Frederick Block of the Federal District Court chose not to send a woman to prison who was convicted of felony drug charges, instead sentencing her to probation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo for Judge Frederick Block having done the right thing here.

And believe me, I am the last person breathing who could ever be characterised as "soft on crime".

But the prison industrial complex in this country has grown completely out of control, particularly for people who are non-violent offenders.

As reported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics 22 April, 2014:

Examines the 5-year post-release offending patterns of persons released from state prisons in 2005 by offender characteristics, prior criminal history, and commitment offense. It provides estimates on the number and types of crimes former inmates commit both prior to their imprisonment and after release. The report includes different measures of recidivism, including a new arrest, court adjudication, conviction, and incarceration for either a new sentence or a technical violation. It also documents the extent to which the released prisoners committed crimes in states other than the one that released them. Data are from the Bureau of Justice Statistics' Recidivism Study of State Prisoners Released in 2005, which tracked a sample of former inmates from 30 states for five years following release in 2005. The findings are based on prisoner records obtained from the state departments of corrections through the National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) and criminal history records obtained through requests to the FBI's Interstate Identification Index (III) and state repositories via the International Justice and Public Safety Network (Nlets). Highlights: Among state prisoners released in 30 states in 2005— About two-thirds (67.8%) of released prisoners were arrested for a new crime within 3 years, and three-quarters (76.6%) were arrested within 5 years. Within 5 years of release, 82.1% of property offenders were arrested for a new crime, compared to 76.9% of drug offenders, 73.6% of public order offenders, and 71.3% of violent offenders. More than a third (36.8%) of all prisoners who were arrested within 5 years of release were arrested within the first 6 months after release, with more than half (56.7%) arrested by the end of the first year. Two in five (42.3%) released prisoners were either not arrested or arrested once in the 5 years after their release. A sixth (16.1%) of released prisoners were responsible for almost half (48.4%) of the nearly 1.2 million arrests that occurred in the 5-year follow-up period.

Let those numbers sink in for a while.

This means that the American prison industrial complex is one, complete epic fail. And it is recidivism which keeps the money flowing for programs which, looking at those numbers, absolutely are not working.

The country of Sweden is emptying its prisons, and why?!?

Because their total approach is rehabilitation of the criminal, so when they get out, they do not re-offend, or at least not anywhere near the rate at which US criminals do.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

EVERYTHING!!

State Sponsors of Terrorism: US Planned and Carried out 9/11 Attacks, but Blames Other Countries for Them Out

“September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S. Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings… Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions. [This policy] can be dubbed ‘victory by means of archives.’

“On September 11, the U.S. attained several victories at the same time, that [even] the hawks [who were at that time] in the White House could not have imagined.

9/11 Disinformation: Saudi Arabia Attacked America — Paul Craig Roberts

The refusal to declassify the evidence against the Saudis and the veto threat have put many commentators in high dudgeon.

What is going on here?

One possible answer is that the public’s confidence in the 9/11 story is eroding as a result of growing expert opinion that challenges the official line. In order to redirect the public’s skepticism, a red herring is being pulled across the trail. The Saudi angle satisfies the belief that some sort of government coverup is involved but redirects the suspicion from Washington to the Saudis. The Saudi angle also fits the neoconservatives’ original plan for overthrowing the Saudi government along with the governments of Iraq, Syria, and Iran. If the American people can be worked up against the Saudis, the neocons can get their wish for “regime change” in Saudi Arabia.

It's Over: Even MSNBC Turns On Hillary - "Stop Lying, Stop Digging"

To say that Hillary did not react properly to the damning State Department Inspector General report which yesterday found that she broke numerous government rules by setting up her own email server, would be a gruesome understatement.

As a reminder, Hillary's kneejerk response was to plead ignorance and claim that she was merely doing what her predecessors had done before, a claim that was promptly refuted, which was followed by her spokesman Brian Fallon appearing on CNN and saying that the Obama appointed IG had an "Anti-Clinton" bias by releasing the report.

Things however turned decidedly worse for Hillary when even the rabidly pro-Clinton channel MSNBC decided to tear Hillary apart for what is now an insurmountable mountain of lies.

It took place early today when MSNBC host Joe Scarborough slammed Hillary Clinton, calling on the Democratic presidential front-runner to "stop lying" about her personal email account.

Film Review: ‘Occupation Of The American Mind’ Unravels Israel’s Propaganda War In US

While rage was building against Israel during that summertime bloodbath, in the United States the story was far different. The American people, Waters says, held firm in their support for the bombing of Gaza. The much beloved talking point that “Israel has a right to defend itself,” one that became a kind of religious mantra during that war and those before it, is explored from the very start of the film.

With help from Peter Hart, of Fair Media Watch, Yousef Munayyer, executive director of The U.S. Campaign to End The Israeli Occupation, and others, the film deconstructs the establishment media’s propaganda efforts. Yousef Munayyer argues that when we examine the formula that mainstream media outlets follow we find Israeli spokespeople are over-represented when compared to Palestinian spokespeople by a margin of 3 to 1. So when Israel is discussed, we are inundated with commentary from officials, who propagate in support of Israel’s use of violence.

VIDEO: COP SNAPS, ALMOST HITS PEDESTRIAN IN CROSSWALK, THEN ATTACKS HIM IN A FIT OF ROAD RAGE

An infuriating video was uploaded to Facebook this week showing an off-duty Boston cop tackling a small older man in a fit of road rage. According to multiple witnesses, the cop nearly hit the older gentlemen as he drove through a crosswalk.

After almost being run over by the incompetent cop, the older man, who was on foot, simply tapped the cop’s window with his umbrella to alert him to the fact that he nearly hit him. This tapping on the window set the cop off into a fit of rage, leading to him chasing down, tackling, and assaulting the innocent man.

When the older gentleman saw the raging lunatic jump out of his vehicle and chase him, he naturally ran. This set the cop off even more, and when he finally caught up to the man, he tackled him, shoved his face into the pavement, and put his knee in his back.

The video, taken by a vigilant citizen, Stephen Harlowe, starts as the cop is ramming the man’s head into the sidewalk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do NOT got to Boston, right now, for any reason.

That older gentleman could have been any of us.

IF you have been looking to vacation in Boston, or hold a symposium there, do not do it; being in Boston can obviously be very hazardous to one's health these days.

Send a letter to Boston's Mayer, Martin J. Walsh, including the site for the video, as the reason why you will no longer consider his city a safe place, either to convention, or vacation.

Because only when cities are financially crucified enough to really feel the economic pain of a boycott will behaviour like this begin to change, on the part of city cops.

Plans for an EU army are being kept SECRET from British voters until the day after the referendum

The plans involve establishing a military headquarters and are backed by Germany as the first step toward creating an EU army.

Officials have kept the Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy under lock and key and officials working on them are only allowed to make hand written notes while reviewing the material in a specific room.

They must leave all phones and computers outside but diplomats' notes were leaked today.

The Times today said the proposals are due to be discussed at the next European summit on June 28 but will not be sent to EU leaders until June 24 - the day after Britain votes on membership - to avoid leaks.

All of Hillary Clinton’s Lies Are Premeditated

Her style of deception is more insidious than Trump’s.
Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com

The State Department’s inspector general released a report this week concluding that Hillary Clinton is a breathtakingly brazen and consistent liar.

No, that’s not a direct quote. Bureaucrats don’t talk that way under the best of circumstances — and this IG, Steve Linick, is an Obama appointee whose report is about the apparent Democratic nominee for president.

So it’s all the more shocking, then, that the report confirms nearly everything Clinton’s critics have been saying. By setting up a secret e-mail server in her home in Chappaqua, N.Y., without proper authorization from any legal or security official, Clinton displayed a cavalier disregard for national security and an outrageous desire to hide her doings from Freedom of Information Act requests, government archivists, Congress, the press, and, ultimately, the American people.
