Clinton fundraising will be 'like nothing you've seen'

President Obama raised $1.072 billion for his 2012 successful presidential campaign. This is after he raised $750 million for his 2008 campaign.

How well is Hillary Clinton expected to do in the fundraising department?

According to aides, her efforts will "astound and intimidate."

US is ‘vassal state’ of Israel: Analyst

Washington is “infested” with traitors who place Israel’s interests first, an indication that the US is a “vassal state” of Israel, an American journalist in Phoenix says.

“We can no longer afford Israel as a friend, much less an ally [because] as a friend they’ve been a severe disappointment,” said Mike Harris, a financial editor at Veterans Today.

All aboard the 'Lolita Express': Flight logs reveal the many trips Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowitz took on pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's private jet with anonymous women

Just released flight records show Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz has been flying with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein on the financier's private jet dubbed the 'Lolita Express' since as early as 1997, despite public statements that they were only acquaintances.

The high-profile lawyer has been distancing himself from Epstein ever since a young woman named Virginia Roberts filed a lawsuit claiming she was recruited to work as a 'sex slave' for Epstein when she was just 15, naming both Dershowitz and Prince Andrew as two of her molesters.

Flight logs place Bill Clinton on sex offender’s jet multiple times

Flight logbooks show that former President Bill Clinton took more than a dozen flights on the private jet of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, according to a new report by Gawker.

The logbooks also show Clinton flew alongside a woman who prosecutors believe procured underage girls to service Epstein and others. In other instances, Clinton reportedly flew with a soft-core porn actress who appears in Epstein’s address book under an entry for “massages.”

Kentucky State Senator: 1891 Rule Voids My DUI Bust

A Kentucky state senator accused of driving drunk on the legislature's opening day this month has invoked a law brought in by predecessors who traveled in horse-drawn carriages. Brandon Smith's lawyer filed a request this week to dismiss his DUI charge based on an 1891 provision in the state constitution saying that, barring felonies, treason, or "breach or surety of the peace," assembly members are "privileged from arrest during their attendance on the sessions of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same," WKYT reports. State police say the Republican was speeding and smelled of booze during a Jan. 6 traffic stop.

Obama won’t meet Netanyahu during ‘bizarre,’ ‘historic,’ ‘unprecedented’ visit

White House and State Department won’t meet with Netanyahu on his March visit to address both houses of Congress. Emergency Committee for Israel calls this a snub.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree with Obama on this one. Netanyahu and Boehner are trying to hijack the AMERICAN Congress to serve Israel's agenda. Obama knows that war with Iran means war with Russia and while a degree of conflict is desired to forestall the rise of the Ruble, all-out war will cost millions of lives and there is the real possibility the US will lose.

Israel, like the bankers, doesn't care who wins or loses so long as their personal wealth and power are elevated in the process. Obama, in his final two years in office and no longer dependent on Israeli support for future elections, seems to be looking at the situation from the point of view of the US, and that is a good thing!

VICTORY: Citizens Stand up to Agenda 21 in Alaska

By Dan Johnson

The average planning and zoning meeting consists of the planning and zoning commissioners, a room, and very little else. They are often dry meetings dealing with rules and regulations for business and home licensing, property lines, and nuisance ordinances.

So when the Borough of Kodiak, AK (Pop. 13,600) chose to attempt to entirely revamp the zoning code and place greater restrictions on property owners, including a $1,000 fine per violation, they expected there to be little opposition, and little knowledge of the change...

Assuming We're Not All Incinerated: Eurasian Power in a Post-Western World

James Holbrooks
Activist Post

“Western Europe is undergoing a wave of Islamization, anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. It is awash in this, and we would like to ensure that the State of Israel will have varied markets around the world.”

Speaking ahead of a meeting with the prime minister of Japan on Sunday, Benjamin Netanyahu stressed Israel’s need to reduce its dependence on European trade. The arrival of the delegation marked the first time since 2006 that a Japanese prime minister has visited Israel, and highlights the extent to which ties have been strengthening between the two countries since Netanyahu was welcomed in Japan in May of last year.

US Spying in Germany – With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

A German spy employed by Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) was arrested in Berlin in early July 2014. He was charged with handing out the top secret documents to foreign secret services, namely the CIA. A few days later it was announced that German law enforcement agencies began searching for another US spy that had been stealing information from The Federal Ministry of Defence.

The general secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) Yasmin Fahimi called for the adoption of a list of “effective countermeasures” that would allow Germany to protect its national secrets from being stolen by Washington. Speaking on national TV Yasmin Fahimi said that: “We are not yet another banana republic.”

Americans at Risk: Obama Is Destroying America’s Ability to Win World War III

In our post-Vietnam era, America vowed to never under appreciate the sacrifices that the men and women in uniform make whose service keeps us safe. However, the nation’s undying gratitude seems to be evaporating. Since Obama has become President, the military has suffered through several years of staggering cuts in funding and tens of thousands of military personnel have been shown the door. Many of these cuts are being visited upon military personnel who were near retirement. After 13 years of being embroiled in war, many soldiers feel that that military has been set adrift and lost all direction and purpose. Upon further examination, it is clear that Obama’s mission with regard to our military is to dismantle and destroy its fighting effectiveness, bit by bit.

Hedge funds gave Mugabe $100M for genocide, got platinum mines in return

Free Speech Endangered: ‘Anonymous’ Journalist Barrett Brown Sentenced for Exposing Gov’t Corruption

The case of Barrett Brown, alleged to have been a spokesperson for Anonymous and accused of being less than a (First Amendment protected) journalist, remains an important case for free speech in the age of mass surveillance, vigilante hacking, reckless and unconstitutional activities by tech firms tied to government and corporate interests.

Hanging in the balance of this and other related cases is the semblance of freedom that society is to have in the information age.

Public awareness and citizen outrage, along with the facts of the case, likely reduced Brown’s sentence to 63 months, with 30 months served, after he initially faced 105 years in prison under charges that interpreted his behavior in the worst possible light – the same light that has generally been cast upon all dissidents, activists and so-called “extremists” in the age of the Internet, that of a potential terrorist, and a menace and danger to society.

Journalist Barrett Brown Sentenced to 63 Months in Prison; Read his Speech Here

Justin King
Activist Post

Persecuted journalist Barrett Brown plans to use his opportunity to address the court at his sentencing to continue to defend his colleagues that are also being persecuted. The government extorted a guilty plea from him by threatening 105 years in prison: he’s currently facing around eight. All indications are that he signed a non-cooperating plea deal in which he admits only his role.

As Barrett Brown joins the ranks of America’s other political prisoners, the American people need to review his words and ask themselves if this is actually the government they want. Do they want to live in a society where journalists are targeted by federal agents simply because they revealed the truth? A society where the government exercises so much control over the corporate media, that the fifth estate remains silent, while one of their own is carted off to prison?

There isn’t much that can be added to Brown’s statement...

Je suis Charlie or Je suis Hypocrite?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, social media was filled with predictable tag lines, hashtags, and memes. It was the result of a general public who had briefly tuned in to current events or the fact that there was a country outside of their own expressing “sympathy and solidarity” with the victims of the terrorist attack. All this proved, however, was that the culture creation machine was well at work at producing feel good messages and that a simple Tweet was quite enough to make the majority of people contented that they had done their patriotic duty.

The ISIS comedy continues…

Much of the Western world has reluctantly signed up with America’s counterfeit crusade against the radical group. And now Japan has been suckered into the madness...

One can’t help but laugh at the way in which our loathsome leaders try to pull the wool over our eyes time and again.

These cowards in high places have resorted to fantastical lies and clownish frauds to keep us complacent and ignorant.

This latest chicanery should make you grin.

Just hours after Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made an “anti-terrorism” pact with Israel and pledged $200 million towards the anti-ISIS coalition led by the United States, ISIS released a video threatening to kill two Japanese hostages.

The infamous British-accented Islamic State fighter, who allegedly beheaded a string of hostages over recent months including American photojournalist James Foley, appears in a new video demanding a ransom of $200 million in exchange for the release of the two Japanese captives.

The Intimidation of Greek Voters - Punishment and Regressive Social Engineering by the EU

Here we go again. There is talk of Greece exiting the euro, and the German government has tried to say that it would be no big deal for Europe, then apparently walked back from that position. At the same time, the German government appears to be trying to influence the Greek election scheduled for January 25 by saying that if the left party Syriza wins, a Greek exit will follow. Syriza, led by the popular and charismatic Alexis Tsipras, is not threatening to leave the euro but promises to renegotiate Greece’s unsustainable debt. Syriza also calls for reversing Greece’s devastating austerity policies, imposed by the European authorities, which have brought the country 6 years of depression and more than 25 percent unemployment.

As the hardly left-leaning Thomas Friedman has explained, even espousing the U.S. State Department’s official policy that settlements are illegal and East Jerusalem is an occupied city can stop a career before it starts.

Veteran CNN journalist Jim Clancy’s resignation this week is one of the odder media fallouts from the Charlie Hebdo Paris attack. On January 7, Clancy got into a late night Twitter spat regarding the French satirical magazine with online adversaries. When he told them they were ganging up on him and practicing “hasbara,” the Hebrew word for “explaining” that describes pro-Israel advocacy often at the behest of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they lashed back as if the term were libelous.

A million and a half people in Paris take to the streets – about 6 million throughout Europe – all screaming or carrying posters with a maddening, inexplicable “Je Suis Charlie” – depicting an utterly brainwashed mindset, brainwashed for decades with Washington directed mind control.

“The Duke is hosting an event for entrepreneurs… and is understood to have decided that the ongoing controversy will be an ‘elephant in the room’ if he does not tackle it head-on… Buckingham Palace has invited a TV cameraman, a photographer and a reporter to record what would be his first public comments about the saga since it began at the start of the month,” The Telegraph reported.

Alan Dershowitz denies EVER being around underage women in presence of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein... just one day after 'sex slave' said he would chat with the billionaire during sex acts

A Harvard law professor named with Prince Andrew in a 'sex slave' case today insisted that he never saw anything improper at the home of their billionaire pedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein.

Alan Dershowitz's claims on Thursday came just one day after accuser Virginia Roberts said in new court filings that the lawyer would chat with Epstein as she performed a sex act on the billionaire.

Speaking in an emphatic interview on the Today show , Dershowitz again accused Roberts of 'making the whole thing up' and said her lawyers are putting 'real' rape victims 'in a terrible position'.

'I was never in the presence of a single underage woman,' he said. 'I never saw [Epstein] doing anything improper. I was not a witness. I was not a participant. And I will prove it.'

In Tuesday’s State of the Union, Obama said The ‘Shadow Of Crisis Has Passed’, and the one and the only thing I thought was: ‘Good, so now we can tackle the crisis itself?!’. If speeches like the SOTU Tuesday night, and the reactions to it, make anything clear, it’s that the PR guys won the fight against critical thinking. Sure, there are people for whom that shadow has passed, but a president is supposed to be there for all Americans, not just for those who finance his campaigns and those of his successors.

But an investigation of public records by the Washington D.C.-based District Sentinel online news site showed that between 1995 and 2009, Ernst’s family received nearly a half-million dollars in government handouts, payments targeted toward subsidizing farms with taxpayer funds.

Second Canadian Company Completing Tar-Sands Pipeline into the U.S.

For six years, TransCanada has negotiated federal and state laws, and contended with the opposition of environmental organizations and landowners, to build the Keystone XL: a 36-inch-diameter, 1,700-mile pipeline that, if completed, would transport 830,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Canadian tar-sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast.

The U.S. State Department has not issued the required presidential permit, which would declare the importing of tar-sands oil in the “national interest.” And the Nebraska Supreme Court just heard oral arguments on a landowners’ lawsuit that could cost TransCanada another year if it has to reapply for its permit in the state.

The stalled process has led one equities analyst to observe that, “Keystone XL doesn’t look like it will ever get fully up and running.”

To the Youth in Europe and North America,

The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.

I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.

L.A. Times Sues Pentagon for Info on Sputtering $40-Billion Missile System

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has spent at least $40 billion on a controversial anti-missile defense system—aimed at thwarting rogue states like North Korea and Iran—which has, so far, registered a test success-rate of less than 50%.

Los Angeles Times reporter David Willman has written in the past about a quick deployment of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense System (GMD), without the usual testing regimen, after President George W. Bush ordered it up in 2002. The expensive remnant of President Reagan’s failed Star Wars system, which has been operational since 2004, has come under close scrutiny as its test record continues to decline.

What comes to the fore is Turkey’s role in training, arming and exporting radical Islamists. Training took place within the NATO domain, in Turkey and Jordan, whereas the New York Times’ report whitewashes it as petty criminals and illegal immigration int China.

Pat McGeehan (R-Hancock, 1), a former Air Force intelligence officer who did tours in Afghanistan and the Middle East, and cosponsored by ten other delegates.

By 98 to 1, U.S. Senate passes amendment saying climate change is real, not a hoax

The vote came on an amendment to legislation that aims to force approval of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from the Canadian oil sands to the United States.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: In 1897, the Indiana legislature considered a bill declaring that PI was equal to 3.2. It passed the House unanimously, but was never brought to a vote in the Senate. The above vote on climate change is just as arrogant and ignorant. Of course climate change is real, but what the above vote is about is shutting off debate about how the government views global warming as the fault of humans and therefore in need of taxation.

Brzezinski, who served as national security adviser to President Jimmy Carter, told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday that Putin might attempt to take over Baltic countries in a sudden attack. . .

. . . "And then we'll say how horrible, how shocking, how outrageous. But, of course, we can't do anything about it," said the Polish American geostrategist, the author of The Grand Chessboard.

Israel’s Netanyahu Was Imported by GOP to Ensure a War with Iran

Republican House Majority leader John Boehner secretly invited Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Washington to address Congress and then once it was set up he let Barack Obama know about it.

The reason for bringing Netanyahu is that Boehner wants to craft a super-majority in Congress that can over-ride Obama’s veto of new sanctions on Iran. He doesn’t have enough Republican votes to do so, but if he can get Democrats beholden to the Israel lobbies of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to join the veto over-ride effort, he might succeed.

San Diego County, another jurisdiction, has fought efforts by citizens to obtain access to data that law enforcement has collected on them using ALPRs. Both claim that the records are exempted under the California Public Records Act because they are records of law enforcement investigations. The agencies also argue the public interest in maintaining secrecy in ALPR data outweighs the public interest in learning how and where ALPR systems are being used.

Washington supreme court hears arguments on Olympia co-op’s boycott of Israeli goods

The Washington State Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Tuesday in the case against sixteen current and former members of the Olympia Food Co-op board of directors. The plaintiffs say the board exceeded its authority by passing a resolution to boycott Israeli goods five years ago.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs — five former members of the co-op, which has 22,000 members — argued against both the 2010 decision to boycott Israeli goods and against a Washington State law that saw their previous attempts to stop the boycott defeated in lower courts.

Congress invites Netanyahu to rebut Obama on Iran, and White House slams ‘breach of protocol’

Well, Congress has responded. This morning it invited Netanyahu to speak to a joint session in the House chamber on February 11– a month before the Israeli elections (as Haaretz noted).

When he told them they were ganging up on him and practicing “hasbara,” the Hebrew word for “explaining” that describes pro-Israel advocacy often at the behest of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they lashed back as if the term were libelous.

The ISIS comedy continues…

ISIS’s string pullers in Washington and Tel Aviv are trying to drag the whole world into their farcical stage-play. Thanks to a slew of ‘beheading videos’ and contrived ‘terror incidents’ that struck a number of Western capitals in recent months, much of the Western world has reluctantly signed up with America’s counterfeit crusade against the radical group.

Ferguson Cop To Face No Civil Rights Charges, DoJ Recommends

Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.

On the one side you have the Syrian Government of Bashar Al Assad backed by Hezbollah and Iran, while on the other you have a who’s who of the region’s nastiest terrorists; from the mismatched posses of Islamic extremists fighting under the Islamic Army moniker, to ISIS and Al Nusra Front, backed by the deep-pocketed Gulf monarchies along with Erdogan’s Turkey and the U.S., with Netanyahu’s Israel added to the mix for good measure. Talk about a true rogues gallery.

Importance of being Syria’s Assad

President Bashar al-Assad whom the US regarded all through to be “ a huge part of the problem, may also now be part of the solution”

On the other hand, the latest reports from Saudi Arabia show Crown Prince huddled with a delegation of American senators led by John McCain to discuss the Pentagon plan to arm and train the Syrian rebels. It seems for a moment that the ‘regime change’ agenda in Syria is back on the front burner of the Obama administration’s Middle East policies.

However, that will be overlooking the remarks by US secretary of state John Kerry on Wednesday voicing support for the Russian efforts to kick start negotiations between the Syrian government and the opposition figures in Moscow as well as de Mistura’s efforts for an Aleppo ceasefire.

Israel Bombs Syria, Kills Top Iranian General and Top Hezbollah Commander

In yet another brazen attack on national sovereignty and human rights, Israel has once again launched a bombing mission onto Syrian soil in defense of death squads and terrorists that it has been supporting – along with the United States, France, and the UK (NATO) – since the beginning of the Syrian crisis.

Some reports attribute the attack to missiles fired from helicopters while others suggest that the attack took place using Israeli drones...

The Danger of an MH-17 ‘Cold Case’

The Obama administration continues to drag its feet on releasing U.S. intelligence evidence on who shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 six months ago, a failure that has given the guilty parties time to scatter and has created a new breeding ground for conspiracy theories.

Now more than six months after the shoot-down of a Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine, the refusal of the Obama administration to make public what intelligence evidence it has about who was responsible has created fertile ground for conspiracy theories to take root while reducing hopes for holding the guilty parties accountable.

Given the U.S. government’s surveillance capabilities – from satellite and aerial photographs to telephonic and electronic intercepts to human sources – American intelligence surely has a good idea what happened on July 17, 2014, when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crashed in eastern Ukraine killing all 298 people onboard.

America Is Open for Business in Iraq (Psst… Wanna Buy an M1 Tank?)

Are Tanks Good for Anything Other Than Profits?

Washington’s rallying cry now seems to be: “Wait for the spring offensive!” In translation that means: wait for the Iraqi army to get enough newly American-trained and -armed troops into action to make a move on Mosul. That city is, of course, the country’s second largest and still ruled by the new “caliphate” proclaimed by Islamic State head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. All in all, not exactly inspiring stuff.

You can’t have victory if you have no idea where the finish line is. But there is one bright side to the situation. If you can’t create Victory in Iraq for future VI Day parades, you can at least make a profit from the disintegrating situation there.

6 WAYS COPS HAVE USED SEX TO INFILTRATE AND DISRUPT PROTEST GROUPS

The exploitation of human sexuality is a well-known pressure point in the repression of social movements. Typically such measures are thought to be reserved for military conflicts involving complex, multi-tiered, counter-insurgency campaigns, such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Throughout the first and second Palestinian uprisings, Israeli intelligence forces regularly recruited Palestinians for collaboration after first documenting them in precarious sexual situations. Classically, Israeli handlers would observe and record a Palestinian engaging in extra-marital, homosexual, or otherwise ‘deviant’ sexual behaviors and then leverage the publicity of these fi

CDC caught inflating flu deaths to sell more vaccines

You know that "36,000" number the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is constantly throwing around as the number of people in the U.S. who supposedly die every year from influenza? It's completely made up, and its purpose is to sell more flu vaccines, as evidenced by actual mortality data showing that only a few hundred people at most die from influenza annually.

As highlighted by the American Society of Registered Nurses (ASRN), government claims that tens or even hundreds of thousands of people are dying left and right because they aren't getting their flu shots is total bunk. Data pulled from death certificates and the U.S. National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) reveal that very few people die from the flu, suggesting that it really isn't much of a threat.

How to Refute the 5 Major Fallacies of Statist Arguments

Daniel Dowling
Activist Post

All supporters of the State are necessarily chauvinistic and rely heavily upon emotion and force, so, the utilization of emotion and force in arguments with these types will not resound and will fall upon deaf ears, like scream-talking at a rock concert; nobody will hear you, and you'll only hurt yourself.

It is in these instances that sound logic must be employed to thoroughly examine all points of Statist inquisition.

A bill introduced by D.C. lawmakers would grant some immigrants lacking U.S. citizenship the ability to vote in municipal elections.

Council as well as initiatives and charter referendums. D.C. Council member David Grosso, at-large independent, introduced the legislation Tuesday.

Haiti, Five Years After the Earthquake: Fraudulent Reconstruction Under Military Occupation

Five years after the devastating earthquake, numerous massive protests were held against the UN occupation (MINUSTAH) and for the departure of Haitian President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. The latter finally resigned in December 2014.

These demonstrations did not make their way into the mainstream media in 2014.

Jeb Bush kept key roles in Florida firm amid signs of trouble

“Fine board meeting,” Bush wrote in an e-mail to the chief financial officer before requesting details about the company’s liability insurance and politely nudging him that cash-flow data “would be appreciated.”

Bush wouldn’t get his answers until a week after his September 2009 e-mail, and then only in part — the CFO provided him with an “unaudited” financial spreadsheet and said no insurance details were immediately available.

If Bush was troubled by the response, it didn’t prompt him to pull away from InnoVida. He remained on the board for an additional year, leaving after a fellow board member started to unravel the widespread fraud that eventually led to the firm’s demise and the criminal convictions of two top executives.

Economic War, BRICS, and the Power of Self-Sufficiency

Ulson Gunnar
Activist Post

The toughest, most resilient people as both individuals and as societies all generally have one thing in common – self-sufficiency. This by no means suggests isolationism, but rather the ability to survive, even thrive through one’s own work using resources at their own disposal.

As a principle, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, and individualism defined young nations like the United States, catapulting it upon the world stage as a global leader after spending time racked in debt and in England’s shadow. By establishing its own industry, its own institutions (including those of a financial nature) and its own military might, the United States transcended the tangled webs of interdependency locking Europe’s ever-shifting, fragile alliances together...

Government Agency Classifies Journalists with Terrorists

Derrick Broze
Activist Post

New revelations from documents released by whistleblower Edward Snowden indicate the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) classifies investigative journalists as a threat, similar to terrorists and hackers.

The Guardian reported on the program which monitored emails to and from journalists working for media organizations in the U.S. and the UK. In one single day, in less than 10 minutes, the GCHQ collected 70,000 emails, including emails of journalists with the BBC, Reuters, the Guardian, the New York Times, the Sun, NBC, and the Washington Post. The emails were collected through the GCHQ accessing the fiber-optic cables known as “the backbone of the internet.” The communications were then shared with staff on the agencies intranet...

Oklahoma Doctors vs. Obamacare

Three years ago, Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder and managing partner of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, took an initiative that would only be considered radical in the health care industry: He posted online a list of prices for 112 common surgical procedures. The 51-year-old Smith, a self-described libertarian, and his business partner, Dr. Steve Lantier, founded the Surgery Center 15 years ago, after they became disillusioned with the way patients were treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the two men worked as anesthesiologists. In 1997, Smith and Lantier bought the shell of a former surgical center with the aim of creating a for-profit facility that could deliver first-rate care at a fraction of what traditional hospitals charge.

Iraq war report 'delayed until after UK election'

The official inquiry into the 2003 Iraq War will not publish its long-awaited report before the general election, the BBC understands.

The BBC's political editor Nick Robinson said inquiry chairman Sir John Chilcot is expected to confirm in a letter to David Cameron that it will be delayed until after May's poll.

The inquiry began its work in 2009 and held its last public hearing in 2011.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said the delay was "incomprehensible".

And the Liberal Democrat leader said that the public would assume the delay was caused by those criticised in the report attempting to "sex it down".
