Accepting Assad? Fallon’s Syria Policy Coming Unstuck As MPs Question War Aims

UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon’s Syria policy is under growing pressure amid rumors MPs may quietly favor a decentralized system of government in Syria which would weaken President Bashar Assad, but leave him in power.

Fallon is expected to give his first full assessment of the situation in Syria to the House of Commons on Tuesday.

Minnesota: Still Trying To Prevent Somali Jihad With Expensive Social Programs

How insane is a government policy that continues to import a tribe of people who resist assimilation and present a danger to the law-abiding citizens? Furthermore, that group — the Somalis — requires extensive expensive programs to keep the young male combatants from blowing up the place, and those programs don’t work. When an American filmmaker visited Minneapolis las May, he found thatmany local Muslims rejected the Constitution and would rather have head-choppy sharia law. Nevertheless, the Obama administration admits 800 Somali foreigners per month.

Ignore Commencement Speeches

This is the season of college Commencement speeches — an art form that has seldom been memorable but has increasingly become toxic in recent times.

Two themes seem to dominate Commencement speeches. One is shameless self-advertising by people in government, or in related organizations supported by the taxpayers or donors, saying how nobler it is to be in “public service” than working in business or other “selfish” activities.

Hillary Clinton’s Energy Initiative Pressed Countries to Embrace Fracking, New Emails Reveal

Far from challenging fossil fuel companies, the emails obtained by The Intercept show that State Department officials worked closely with private sector oil and gas companies, pressed other agencies within the Obama administration to commit federal government resources including technical assistance for locating shale reserves, and distributed agreements with partner nations pledging to help secure investments for new fracking projects.

Chicago Investigator Blows Whistle on Corrupt Police Review Board

By Derrick Broze

A former investigator with Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority has filed a lawsuit claiming that he was fired for refusing to produce false reports regarding officers accused of misconduct.

Lorenzo Davis began working with Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) in 2008 as an investigator after 23 years with the Chicago Police Department. By July 2010, he was promoted to supervising investigator before moving up to deputy chief administrator in October 2011 and finally, chief administrator in February 2014.

Despite a long history with law enforcement and the IPRA, Davis is now suing the agency alleging that he was fired for not listening to his superiors when they commanded him to change his reports to favor officers accused of misconduct...

Latest Foster Cover-Up Book Not Completely Worthless

Peschmann’s Scalice passage appears on page 106 of her book. At this point the reader might as well just continue with his Internet reading and ditch the book. The Knowlton appendix referred to—by dint of the judges’ decision as much a part of the official report as the work of Starr’s team—thoroughly destroys Peschmann’s thesis. She guesses that Foster, after going out and eating some more somewhere, came back to the White House shortly after 5 o’clock and shot himself in his office with his own gun and was then transported to Fort Marcy Park and dumped there by panicked fellow White House lawyers working late.

Webmaster's Commentary:

In a reversal of the smidgen of accountability forced on Bank of America for its role in the 2008 financial crisis, a U.S. appeals court threw out a jury’s verdict — and with it, the $1.27 billion fine BoA would have paid for mortgage fraud. Though the Department of Justice had alleged Countrywide Financial Corp., which was purchased by Bank of America in 2008, had sold Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac thousands of bad loans through its “Hustle” mortgage program, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York found insufficient evidence to back charges of fraud.

When a team of "vested up and gunned up" U.S. Marshals in Tennessee apprehended Tracy Hinson and began interrogating her about selling 10 Xanax tablets in 2012, she gave them answers that made it clear they had the wrong woman. The marshal in charge told Hinton he needed to make a call. "After he went and made a call, he came back and told me that he had to do what the paper said he had to. He asked if I ever lived in Mt. Pleasant, and I said no," said Hinson. "They took me to the Dyer County Jail and I was fully processed there, and that included being shackled and strip searched. They said they were holding me until Lawrence County could come and pick me up that night."

Many Washington GOP Delegates Will Push Cruz For V.P. At National Convention

"I talked to Ted Cruz's Washington campaign chair at the end of these elections and he said, Look--we're not going there to disrupt. We're going there to try to influence the outcome of the Vice Presidential candidate, really he said to make sure conservative principles remain in the party platform, which really gets written at that convention," Jenkins said. "So, trying to bring Ted Cruz ideas and principles to that convention--but not try to, somehow, upend the what seems to be inevitable nomination of Donald Trump."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ted Cruz cannot serve as Vice President. The 12th Amendment imposes on the Vice President the same eligibility requirement as the President, meaning a natural born US citizen. Ted Cruz was born in Canada of parents who sere Canadian citizens and ONLY Canadian citizens at the time. That makes Ted Cruz a Canadian by birth and only a Canadian by birth. And, because Ted Cruz' father was still married to his previous wife when Ted was born, Ted is not eligible for birthright citizenship under Section 309(c) of the Immigration and Naturalization act.

Hillary Clinton to California: “Drop Dead”

By now, anyone paying the least attention knows that the dishonest Democratic establishment and dishonest mainstream media have created a false narrative of bad behavior by Bernie Sanders supporters at the Nevada State Democratic State Convention on May 14. The evidence-free claims about “thrown chairs” (none) and “death threats” (tasteless insults) have been widely rebutted, but they have served their purpose all the same: taking attention away from the arrogant, autocratic management of the Nevada convention by establishment Democrats working on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

It’s a measure of Democratic Party panic that party leaders feel the need to run a despotic convention, autocratically ramming their preferred results through when there were only two national delegates at stake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a very real possibility that Judicial Watch may come up with enough bombshell information, created through a public lawsuit or indictment, which could damage Clinton enough, before the elections, that she would have to resign from the campaign.

That is why Sanders is smart to stay the course; because IF Clinton has to retire before the convention. at that point, Biden may make a grab for the nomination, bringing Sanders in as a Vice-Presidential candidate.

But I would very much suspect one thing from the Obama White House; if their internal polling suggests, even mildly, that Trump might win, the Obama Administration is going to put this country into one, or several horrific wars before Trump is sworn into office, to insure that his first hundred days, and beyond, if possible,will be absolute hell.

He also informed Tapper that, if he wins the Democratic nomination for presidency, he wouldn’t reappoint Wasserman Schultz as head of the DNC. This is in the wake of the much-debated Nevada convention last week, where Sanders’ supporters protested because they felt the system was rigged in favor of his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Jesse Ventura sounds off.

Standing Up To Multinational Big-Ag: Nepal, Monsanto, and USAID

It did not go “extinct,” rather, it merely “evolved.” Today, imperialism looks like national and international “aid programs” which are used as fronts and vectors for corporate special interests...

First ‘Clinton Cash’ Domino to Fall: FBI Investigating Hillary Bagman Terry McAuliffe

Close Clinton operative Terry McAuliffe is under federal investigation for campaign contributions from a Chinese billionaire who has also donated $2 million to the Clinton Foundation.

As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe’s time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton.

There’s no allegation that the foundation did anything improper; the probe has focused on McAuliffe and the electoral campaign donations, the officials said.

Spokespeople for the Justice Department and the FBI declined to comment.

Among the McAuliffe donations that drew the interest of the investigators was $120,000 from a Chinese businessman, Wang Wenliang, through his U.S. businesses. Wang was previously delegate to China’s National People’s Congress, the country’s ceremonial legislature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's funny, the way this article characterises China's National People's Congress as "ceremonial"; because right now, looking at the way members of Congress have been purchased by corporations, the US government's alleged representatives, look pretty darn ceremonial to me!

But getting back to McAuliffe, I seriously doubt that anything real , or any bombshell revelations, will be uncovered.

That being said, however, if it appears to the Clintonistas for one millisecond, as though this may be the case, look for Mc Auliffe to start to get "very very depressed" ; and we know, from the example of the death of Vincent Foster, just precisely where that "depression" can lead.

Trump: suicide of Bill Clinton's counsel Vince Foster 'very fishy' – as it happened

In a Washington Post interview, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump indicated that he is tentatively exploring one of the most infamous conspiracy theories about Bill Clinton’s presidency as he readies his general election battle plan against Hillary Clinton. In the interview, Trump called theories that the Clintons were behind the 1993 death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster “very serious,” calling the circumstances of his suicide “very fishy.” “He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said. “He knew everything that was going on and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.”

The Rise of the Meta-Criminal; Is the NSA Manipulating the Stock Market?

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: 

Trump has stated that there is something "fishy" about the death of Vincent Foster. Actually, it's more the size of a whale, but the corporate media has jumped all over Trump, denouncing him for his "far-fetched" (WaPo) comment. But as this article, the very first ever written on my path to becoming a truth activist reveals, there is indeed a lot of reasons to discount the suicide cover-up.

The Amazing Glyphosate Revolt Grows

There is an absolutely amazing international revolt against the most deadly and most widely used weed killer in world agriculture–glyphosate. Those of you who have followed my earlier writings can detect my feeling of pessimism that mere “democratic” grass-roots protest, combined with a scientific assessment from an agency of WHO that glyphosate was a “probable carcinogen” would be enough to stop the pending, twice-postponed EU Commission renewal of the expiring license for glyphosate in the EU. It almost doesn’t matter at this point what the ultimate vote is when the next EU Commission glyphosate meeting is convened. The genie is out of the bottle. One of the world’s most important eugenics projects to maim and ultimately reduce human population is on the brink of being banned much as DDT decades ago.

So, of course, he was asked about his thoughts on Foster and how his suicide may have been a staged killing by the Clintons. This is what Trump said:

He called theories of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of Foster’s death “very fishy.”

In response to the U.S. Senate’s unanimous vote to allow 9/11 victims’ families to sue Saudi Arabia in federal court, a report published in the London-based Al-Hayat daily, by Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari, claims that the U.S. masterminded the terror attacks as a means of creating a nebulous “enemy” in order garner public support for a global war on terror.

The report by al-Shammari, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), claims that long-standing American policy is “built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities,” which the U.S. has now turned toward the Saudi regime after being successfully employed against first the Taliban and al-Qaeda, then Saddam Hussein and his secular Baathist controlled Iraq...

There's a consistent pattern: in telephone polls remain tends to be in the lead; in internet polls the two sides are neck and neck.

The discrepancy between the two types of poll has narrowed in the last few months.

The lead for remain in phone polls is now about 8-12% when people who respond "don't know" are eliminated, down from about 20% last year. Internet polls have been suggesting a virtual dead heat for months.

Clinton’s anti-firearm proposals would put Americans in danger

With crime rates on the rise throughout the nation, 2nd Amendment supporters are pointing out that Hillary Clinton’s gun-control positions are more dangerous than ever for law-abiding Americans. -- Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is calling Clinton the “the most anti-2nd Amendment” presidential candidate in history after she unequivocally stated that she believes the Supreme Court got its District of Columbia v. Heller decision wrong. That ruling prohibits state and local officials from creating needless hurdles to gun ownership in violation of the 2nd Amendment.

California high school forces children to watch vaccine propaganda film and give 'correct' answers or be penalized

At Redondo Beach Union High School in Redondo Beach, California, tenth graders are forced to watch a vaccine propaganda film, then provide the "correct" answers in a graded test. Click here to see the vaccine propaganda test that tenth graders must take. (PDF)

The test given to high school students is rife with factual errors and gross omissions, such as claiming that polio infection rates "dropped by 99% when vaccine was introduced in 1955." Children are not taught that polio vaccines cause paralysis and that the official rates of polio dropped largely because government officials altered the definition of "polio" to create the illusion that the vaccines were working better than they actually were.

Delinquent Debt At Levels Worse Than 2008: “Exact Same Thing Is Happening Again”

Intel Officials Urge Fast Report on Clinton’s Emails

snip: The contrast between the copious evidence – some of it self-admitted – of Secretary Clinton’s demonstrable infractions, on the one hand, and the very sketchy, circumstantial evidence used to convict and imprison Jeffrey Sterling, on the other, lend weight to the suspicion that there is one law for the rich and powerful in the United States and another for the rest of us.

Failing to take steps against a politically powerful presidential candidate and letting her off unscathed for crimes of her own making, while an institutionally unprotected Jeffrey Sterling sits in prison would be a travesty of justice not dissimilar to the gentle wrist-slap given Gen. David Petraeus for giving his mistress extremely sensitive information and then lying to the FBI about it.

Critical Hit to Clinton Campaign as Media Dives Into Corporate Ties

As we’ve followed the coverage of Hillary Clinton, we’ve pointed out the negatives continue to mount for her in the mainstream media.

Over the weekend and late last week that trend hasn’t changed. If anything, it’s gotten worse.

We’re beginning to believe that the damage being done to Hillary is already too severe for her to become president- whether or not she is able to continue from a legal standpoint.

Recent mainstream coverage has focused on Hillary’s legal troubles, her growing unpopularity and, in the case of the New York Post, fees she received for speeches. (See above excerpt.)

Ted Cruz just crushed Donald Trump in Washington State election of GOP delegates

Washington State holds its Republican primary on Tuesday, and with one candidate left in the race, there's not too much drama about the outcome. But in a twist — and what would the 2016 race be without a twist? — 40 of Washington's 41 delegates selected Saturday to attend the Republican National Convention in July are Ted Cruz partisans. Cruz supporters outnumbered Donald Trump supporters at the state GOP convention in Pasco, and they were better organized, pushing through the Cruz slate of delegates over occasional protests from Trump backers, who noted repeatedly that Cruz is no longer in the race.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Along with the fact that Ted Cruz, born in CANADA to parents who were CANADIAN CITIZENS at the time, is not eligible to serve as President of the United States!

CITY OUTRAGED AFTER WATCHING COPS KILL A MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR ON VIDEO AND ESCAPE CHARGES

A community is “angry” over an attorney general’s decision refusing to prosecute the officers involved in the killing of a man in a wheelchair last year. The victim, 28-year-old Jeremy McDole was killed last September while sitting in his wheelchair on the city’s west side. Some black community leaders and residents were outraged by the outcome of the eight-month investigation led by the Delaware Department of Justice, which took the unusual step of singling out Senior Cpl. Joseph Dellose for “extraordinarily poor police work” during the incident. Dellose fired at McDole with a shotgun approximately two seconds after initially ordering him to put his hands up, the report found, creating uncertainty among other officers who, not knowing where the gunfire came from, also turned their weapons on McDole, reports Delaware Online.

Clinton campaign is ‘nervous’ Sanders will push ‘divisive’ battle over Democratic platform on Israel

Remember Hillary Clinton’s hard-right Israel positions stated again and again, including at AIPAC in March: She will invite Netanyahu to the White House in the first month; she will take Israel relationship to “the next level,” whatever that is; she will fight the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement hammer and tongs and working with Republicans to do so; and she said that Donald Trump has “no business being president,” because he has pledged neutrality on the Israel Palestine question, and an American president must never be neutral on Israel.

Then Bernie Sanders pulled the rug out from under her in that “contentious” April 14 debate in NY, saying that Netanyahu is not always right and that Israel used disproportionate force against Gaza in 2014, when it killed 500 children, and the audience cheered. They cheered because this is the Democratic base’s position, fairness toward Palestinians.

We’ve said again and again here that Israel can divide the Democrats, grassroots versus establishment, and it should divide the Democrats, it’s that important an issue.

Intel Officials Urge Fast Report on Clinton’s Emails

Last Wednesday Robert Gates, CIA Director under President Bush-41 and Defense Secretary under President Bush-43, publicly commented that Secretary Hillary Clinton’s “whole email thing … is really a concern in terms of her judgment,” adding, “I don’t know what originally prompted her to think that was a good idea.”

What originally prompted her does not matter. As your Secretary of State and your subordinate, she willfully violated laws designed to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. It may be somewhat difficult for those not as immersed in national security matters as we have been to appreciate the seriousness of the offense, including the harm done in compromising some of the most sensitive U.S. programs and activities. This is why we write.

MAD ABOUT RIGGED ELECTIONS? MAINSTREAM MEDIA SAYS "YOU" ARE THE PROBLEM

It would be nice if Eichenwald’s hit piece were as much a joke as it comes across, but clearly he’s missed the point — and the vast movement supporting not only Sanders, but electoral justice. Worse, he didn’t stop there:

“Signs are emerging that the Sanders campaign is transmogrifying into the type of movement through which tyrants are born.

“The ugly was on display” at the aforementioned Nevada convention, Eichenwald adds, “where Hillary Clinton won more delegates than Sanders.”

No kidding. That would be precisely the issue that “cult” expressed fury about — Clinton managed to put yet another state under her belt under highly questionable circumstances. In fact, suspect happenings at nearly every primary and caucus so far oddly favor the former secretary of state — and Nevada stood as further testament to why voters are practically up in arms over what appears to be electoral favoritism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clinton is obsessed with obtaining the power of the oval office, and by any means necessary; she, and the people around her, who understand the perks of power, are hell-bent to obtain it, and by any means necessary.

She and her supporters have the morals of a dead tree-stump, and have had their consciences collectively, and thoroughly, removed.

It is pretty easy to predict the ultimate outcomes of a Clinton presidency; more wars; the return of the draft; more income inequality (as she is owned, body and soul, by Wall Street and the military industrial and pharmaceutical industries); more job offshoring and outsourcing, leaving more Americans without meaningful jobs; and a complete collapse of the American economic system.

And don't get me wrong here; I would LOVE to see a woman as President; just, please, Lord, not THIS woman!!

Billions Are Being Transferred From The Taxpayers To Wall Street

If you don’t have enough cash laying around to buy your own Federal-level “elected” official, you are middle class.

It’s easy for Wall Street to get their share of the crumbs being swept off the table because it’s managed to infiltrate and control every nook and cranny of Capitol Hill. Hillary Clinton is a Democrat? Really? Then how come she and Bill greedily take millions from Goldman Sachs alone in “speaking” fees.

Mandatory financial disclosures released this month show that, in just the two years from April 2013 to March 2015, the former first lady, senator and secretary of state collected $21,667,000 in “speaking fees,” not to mention the cool $5 mil she corralled as an advance for her 2014 flop book, “Hard Choices.”

McAfee-Weiss: Is There Actually the Potential for Some Honesty in Politics?

I’ve been disgusted by the two party system for years. Candidates are paraded before us, giving us the illusion that we have a choice. One after another, each new “option” worse than the last batch of “choices.”

Because of this, I’ve become somewhat apolitical.

I refuse to choose the lesser of two evils.
When you do that, you’re still choosing evil.

You’re still “voting FOR” someone who will change the fabric of our nation, generally to support their own selfish agenda. Presidents become wealthy if they’re not rich when they go into office. They become wealthier if they started off that way. Don’t delude yourself into thinking the goal for the two-party system is actually to make things better for us.

I had decided to abstain from voting this year because I refuse to endorse this system that is so blatantly rigged,so inherently violent, and so manipulative.
