Ammon Bundy offered guilty plea if armed Oregon protesters were let go

The leader of the armed group that took over a federal wildlife reserve in Oregon reportedly offered to plead guilty to federal criminal charges if other protesters were let go and relieved of their charges.

According to the Oregonian, federal prosecutors ultimately rejected Ammon Bundy’s offer to plead guilty to a federal conspiracy charge, which was made about three days after he was arrested. Bundy led more than two-dozen armed individuals when they took over the Malhuer National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon this past January, an occupation that lasted 41 days.

At the time his offer was made, the occupation of the reserve was still ongoing, though 26 others were eventually charged over the incident.

In a court motion seeking to delay filing deadlines in Bundy’s trial, the 40-year-old’s attorney Mike Arnold said Bundy "was willing to sacrifice his broader interests and risk his liberty for his fellow protesters.”

South Africa’s Zuma faces corruption charges again

A South African court has revised a 2009 decision to drop graft charges against President Jacob Zuma, saying he should again face a trial over a controversial arms deal in 1999.

“The decision... to discontinue the charges against Mr Zuma is irrational and should be reviewed and set aside,” Judge Aubrey Ledwaba ruled on Friday, adding, “Mr Zuma should face the charges as applied.”

The verdict allows prosecutors to re-open charges against Zuma in connection with a multi-billion dollar arms deal 17 years ago. The embattled leader has denied allegations of accepting bribes from international arms manufacturers at the time.

Why Real Reform Is Now Impossible

Central banks have transformed the market–in stocks, bonds, commodities and risk–into the signaling mechanism that tells us all is well. Even though the real-world finances of the bottom 95% continue deteriorating, a rising stock market and suppressed measures of risk signal that the economy is doing well. If you’re not doing well, it’s your personal problem; the status quo is fine and needs only minor tweaks.

Elevating the market into the oracle of economic health creates a systemic risk:If the market tanks, the status quo is called into question. People start asking, is it truly a wonderful arrangement that benefits us all, or is it really just a skimming machine that funnels money and wealth from the many into the voracious maws of the few?

Central banks thwart this existential danger to the status quo by rescuing the market every time it approaches the market clearing event level. (see chart) In a market clearing event, risky loans and bets are liquidated, credit dries up, risk soars and the price of assets falls to levels that once again make fundamental sense.

Where Are the Other 10 Million Panama Papers?

When I posted my scepticism that we would be given the full truth about the content of the Panama Papers by the mainstream media outlets who were controlling them, it went viral and became the first individual article to be read by half a million people on this blog alone, and a multiple of that as it was posted all round the web, translated into several languages.

I also attracted some derision from establishment propagandists. I had contented that the fact the papers themselves were not made available, but we were rather fed selected information by the western and corporate state media, would limit and slant what the public was told. The initial concentration on Russia, Iran, Syria etc seemed to confirm this. But it was urged that more was to come, and I should wait, and it was suggested I would look foolish when they finished publishing. “Wait and see” tweeted the editor of the lead newspaper, the Suddeutsche Zeitung, in response to my post.

Well I waited, and what happened? The story fizzled out.

"It's Hard To Believe" - Establishment Stunned As Trump Gains 'Wealthy, Well-Educated' Voters

Not only is Donald Trump likely to gather the most votes of any GOP Presidential nominee ever, having swept the East Coast and crushed the anti-Trump alliance between Kasich and Cruz even before it made the news cycle; but now, as Reuters reports, the GOP establishment faces an ever bigger problem. Wealthy, well-educated voters helped carry the Republican front-runner to victory this week - a demographic the famously blunt-spoken billionaire had struggled to attract in the past.

Head Of Deutsche Bank "Integrity Committee" Fired Due To "Overzealousness"

Perhaps it is merely a coincidence but just weeks after Deutsche Bank became the first bank to admit to rigging the gold market (and agreeing to rat out fellow manipulators) yesterday afternoon the head of Deutsche Bank's "integrity committee" announced he would resign two years before his time, which is a polite way of saying he was fired.

As the FT reports, Georg Thoma has been fired from Deutsche Bank’s supervisory board two years before his contract ends "after coming under fire from other board members in a battle over how to deal with the German bank’s past scandals."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently the job was to make it LOOK like Deutsche Bank had integrity, not actually do anything about it. :)

STORY ALREADY FALLING APART - Lawsuit Accuses Donald Trump of Raping Teen Girl

Johnson filed the lawsuit pro se, meaning she is representing herself. No attorney is listed in the court documents. The phone number she lists in the filing is disconnected. It was previously listed as a cell phone number for a California dentist, who could not be reached.

Her listed address is a house in Twentynine Palms, California, that has been foreclosed and is vacant, neighbors told Radar Online.

Trump lawyer calls 'rape' lawsuit a HOAX and says there's no proof accuser exists following allegation a woman was used as a 13-year-old 'sex slave' at billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's 'sex parties' in 1994

'To be clear, there is absolutely no merit to these claims and, based on our investigation, no evidence that the person who has made these allegations actually exists.'

Radar Online reported Thursday night that Epstein's infamous 'little black book,' a record of his contacts seized by the FBI, doesn't include the name Katie Johnson, casting further doubt on the lawsuit's claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Michelle Fields made her bogus claim that Trump's campaign manager had assaulted her, the internet was quick to track down all the other spurious claims she had made, destroying her story, her credibility, and her career. So, in this latest attempt to smear Trump, it makes sense they would manufacture a fictitious victim, who would be immune to public exposure of a past that simply does not exist.

Livingstone vindicated: There WAS a Nazi-Zionist agreement and Hitler DID support it

The Haavara Agreement was an agreement between Nazi Germany and Zionist German Jews signed on 25 August 1933.

The agreement was finalized after three months of talks by the Zionist Federation of Germany, the Anglo-Palestine Bank (under the directive of the Jewish Agency) and the economic authorities of Nazi Germany.

The agreement was designed to help facilitate the emigration of German Jews to Palestine.

"Why Our Children Should Hate Us" - Read The Lance Simmens Article Banned By The Huffington Post

Lance Simmens’ career was spent in public policy. Specifically, he worked for two U.S. Presidents as well as a couple of senators and governors. Since retirement, he’s been a prolific writer, publishing 180 articles at the Huffington Post over the past 8 years. As such, it came as a great shock to him to discover that one of his recent articles was removed by the Huffington Post shortly after publication. It was the first article ever rejected by the online publication, and the unacceptable subject matter was nothing more than a positive review of the banned everywhere documentary VAXXED.

Some Criminals are More Equal Than Others

Evidently, former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert “earned” the dubious honor of being one of the highest-ranking politicians in American history to be sentenced to prison. As if this dude got a REAL prison sentence for the crimes!!! Hastert pleaded guilty last fall to trying to BRIBE someone with a whopping $3.5 million to keep the sexual abuse of teenage boys a secret. He was sentenced Wednesday to 15 months in prison, sex offender treatment, two years of supervised release after his time behind bars and a $250,000 fine that will go to a crime victims fund. Oh, boy, yeah, he’s really going to rot in jail, what? People get longer jail terms for having less than an ounce of weed in some states and they haven’t harmed so much as a gnat. I bet the feds jail a person longer for allegedly cheating on their taxes.

How Israel lobby manufactured UK Labour Party’s anti-Semitism crisis

But an investigation by The Electronic Intifada has found that some of the most prominent stories about anti-Semitism in the party are falsified.

The Electronic Intifada can reveal that a key player in Labour’s “anti-Semitism crisis” covered up his involvement in the Israel lobby.

Most Labour members so accused are in reality being attacked for expressing opinions in favor of Palestinian human rights and particularly for supporting the boycott of Israel.

Labour activists, many of them Jews, have told The Electronic Intifada that false accusations of anti-Semitism are being used as a weapon against Corbyn by the party’s right-wing.

Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

On Wednesday night, former House Speaker John Boehner bluntly called GOP candidate Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.”

When asked for his opinion about the Texas senator, Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.

Ted Cruz’s ‘Alliance’ With John Kasich Hits New Low Point

Speaking to reporters before a rally with Carly Fiorina, his would-be running mate, Mr. Cruz was asked about the status of the agreement, which stipulated that Mr. Kasich would cede Indiana to Mr. Cruz if Mr. Cruz abandoned plans to campaign in New Mexico and Oregon. (Mr. Kasich instantly complicated matters by urging Indiana voters on Monday to support him, anyway.)

“I recognize that the media is all eager to talk about an alliance. There is no alliance,” Mr. Cruz said. “Kasich and I made a determination where to focus our energies, where to focus our assets, where to focus our resources.”

While he said the two agreed that Donald J. Trump would be a disastrous Republican nominee, Mr. Cruz cast Mr. Kasich’s participation in the gambit as something less than altruistic.

The House Just Voted To Give Wall Street Billions From Americans’ Retirement Savings

The House voted 234 to 188 Thursday to undo a rule proposed by the Labor Department earlier this month that would require anyone getting paid to provide retirement investment advice to act in the best interest of retirees. Many people think that’s already how things work, but it isn’t.

The way things work right now is that brokers who oversee retirement savings accounts can be paid extra to steer their clients into unnecessarily expensive funds or excessively risky investments, without disclosing that fact to their clients. That sort of conflicted investment advice costs Americans saving for retirement $17 billion a year, according to the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

To remedy the situation, the Obama administration proposed a fiduciary rule to keep Wall Street from taking so much money in fees from retirement accounts. The financial industry has opposed the rule from the start, saying it will raise costs and limit the advice investors can receive.

The Chelsea Clinton fundraiser that should worry Hillary’s pro-Israel backers

For $250,”friends” — or $1000 for a “champion” (photo included) — you too can attend a fundraiser with Chelsea Clinton for her mother at the home of Michael and Sholeh Chegini in Newport Coast, California, according to an invitation to the event obtained by Right Turn. Michael Chegini served on the board of directors and thereafter the advisory board of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), a notorious group with links to the Iranian regime that opposed, among other things, any sanctions on Iran.

“The Clintons never miss an opportunity to put money ahead of principle,” a spokesman for the Republican Jewish Coalition told me. “They should know better than raising money from folks whose primary concern has been supporting the NIAC — a notorious supporter of the Radical Islamic Mullahs in Iran. Instead as is always the case, the Clintons have thrown principle out the window in exchange for cold hard cash.”

THE 'ABDICATION' OF THE WHITE MAN

Political puppets generally have a personal buffer between themselves and the big masters. Woodrow Wilson had Edward Mandell House; FDR had Henry Morgenthau; Barack Obama has Valerie Jarrett.

For Winston Churchill, the personal handler, and a probable homosexual lover (here), was Frederick A. Lindemann a physicist whose German-Jewish family arrived in England when he was about 14 years old. He was known to friends as "the Prof" in reference to his position at the University of Oxford, and as "Baron Berlin" to his many detractors because of his German accent and haughty aristocratic manner.

Lindemann believed that a small circle of elites should run the world, resulting in a stable society, "led by supermen and served by helots." He believes that science can yield a race of humans blessed with “the mental makeup of the worker bee.”

Are Bill Clinton and his team the key to the FBI’s Hillary investigation?

Was Hillary Clinton’s unsecure, private email server set up by her husband’s top political operative in order to turbocharge their own political and financial interests?

Justin Cooper may hold the answer.

Mr. Cooper is a central player in the shadowy worlds of Bill and Hillary Clinton — serving as Mr. Clinton’s top aide since 2015, when his predecessor, former right-hand man and “surrogate son” Doug Band, resigned from the Clinton Foundation — yet he has largely escaped notice.

Speaking to reporters in the Syrian capital on Thursday, Dick Black, part-time state senator of Virginia, said it would be "beneficial" for Washington to speak directly to President Assad.

The remarks by Black, an outspoken Republican, contradict those made by US officials who claim that the Syrian president has lost legitimacy.

During his meeting with President Assad, the US senator emphasized that what is happening in Syria is far from disinformation practiced by some parties at the US administration.

SNOWDEN - Official Trailer

Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world.

He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.

(Note: Hmmmm . . . I wonder what won't be shown i.e. the direct NSA pipeline to Israel, maybe?)

Hillarybots, You Blew It! Thanks for Another Decade of War, Misery, and Scandal

It's not as if Sanders's was some quixotic Ralph Nader-type campaign, or he was some Green Party maverick. This was the real deal. The only way to have done this was not to start a third party, in our undemocratic system, but to take over an existing party from within. Precisely what Trump is doing. Sanders gave clear signals to progressives that he never wanted to be identified with the corrupt Democratic party establishment, and you had a problem with that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't be too hard on the New Yorkers. If all the Democratic voters had been allowed to vote, Sanders would have won.

“RETALIATORY CULTURE” AT TSA HAS “PARALYZED” AGENCY AND COMPROMISED SECURITY GOALS, SAY WHISTLEBLOWERS

Crackdowns on dissenters and lenient treatment of unqualified upper management have left theTransportation Security Administration "paralyzed" and "in crisis," three agency whistleblowers told Congress on Wednesday. Jay Brainard, the federal security director for the TSA Office of Security Operation, told the House Oversight and Government Reform committee Wednesday morning that, between 2011 and 2015, the TSA staffed its leadership positions with "unprepared employees" who were chosen not for their qualifications, but because they were well-liked within the agency. "For years we had many senior executives, most of which completely lacked the experience needed for their position, run amok and make decisions or conduct themselves in an unethical manner which eroded our ability to complete the security mission and grossly compromised the integrity of our agency," Brainard told the committee.

Breaking: John Boehner Just Made A BOMBSHELL Trump Announcement! WHOA

Former Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), is no fan of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). A new media report caught Boehner referring to Cruz as “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “jackass.” Boenher added, “I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone,” Boehner announced. Then he dropped a bombshell… He came as close to endorsing conservative businessman Donald J. Trump as possible. This is a big deal:

At Stanford, a Boehner unburdened by the shackles of the office reportedly garnered laughter and smiles from the attendees as he struck a more informal tone than in most of his past previous appearances.
He recounted how he used to play golf with Donald Trump and said they were “texting buddies.”[…]

Boehner told the crowd he’d support Trump in the general election, but not Cruz.

Vaccine fraud continues: Uncensored discussion by those behind VAXXED reveals CDC plan to ‘rework’ MMR data, dispel safety concerns

Spurred on by the growing popularity of the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is said to be planning a major campaign to dispel growing skepticism over safety of the MMR vaccine.

Those closest to the documentary have shared that they have strong reason to believe the CDC will release ‘reworked’ MMR research data and that the agency has bought off whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who remains with the agency.

The forecast of a CDC propaganda machine is likely related to the failure of vaccination zealots to effectively repress the documentary. Instead of being censored into obscurity, the film has garnered growing attention. This unanticipated turn of events has likely served as the catalyst for the agency’s next move, which will not only include “reanalyzed” data, but a PR strategy to spoon-feed the “new” findings to the mainstream media and the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the public, knowing they were lied to before, will simply believe this new helping of bovine excrement as they are commanded to!

Despite sweep, Trump may not get all Pennsylvania delegates

Donald Trump swept through Pennsylvania on Tuesday night with 57% of the vote, 35 points better than his nearest competitor -- a trouncing that led Trump to declare himself "the presumptive nominee."

CNN and other news organizations have not yet followed suit.

The billionaire businessman's romp in the Keystone State earned him all 17 of its bound delegates and put him in prime position to win votes from at least 35 of its 54 first ballot free agents.

But Trump will not emerge from Pennsylvania with the guaranteed support of any of those unbound delegates.

Ted Cruz, his chief rival, is pouring his energies into Indiana in the hope that voters there give him a victory and keep his White House hopes alive.

TTIP – current EU GMO rules to be ‘disregarded’ as EU Commission caves in to US pressure27th April 2016 / EU

In essence, the European Commission has effectively deserted its principles when it comes to GMO’s entering the food chain within the 28 nation bloc. Intense lobbying by United States representatives for the EU Commission to disregard current GMO rules which require stringent safety tests and labelling has proved successful. The result is that genetically modified organisms produced through a modified technique called ‘gene editing’ will be allowed. Gene editing is all but the same as anything we understand about GMO’s generally.

Oh HELL No: Ted Cruz Just Announced His VP — Establishment Puppet Carly Fiorina

But Ted is such a Constitutionalist, right? (At least that's what his supporters somehow amazingly still tell themselves, anyway.)

So, America, let’s get this straight.

The establishment is attempting to make sure Trump and Bernie are off the ballot, no matter how popular they are with the people…

But the options they do want to give people are an evil dragon lady with a trail of scandals and dead bodies in her wake or a Tea Party lite Bushite with a Goldman Sachs-NAU-Council on Foreign Relations wife who a doctor has officially argued is legitimately biologically off-putting due to his abnormal facial features who will be running with another establishment dragon woman who can’t even smile without looking as if it hurts her face to do so?

It’s like a bunch of Disney villains are going to run the country.

Academic Freedom and Free Speech: Prof. James Tracy (says Sandy Hook was a hoax) Files Civil Rights Suit against Florida Atlantic University

AU school officials first threatened Tracy with disciplinary action after a defamatory local and national media attack concerning Tracy’s online postings in early 2013. However, the University’s administration withdrew its initial threats following intervention by Tracy’s union representatives at UFF and FEA.

In late 2015, Professor Tracy was again threatened with disciplinary action for requesting clarification on and questioning changes made to the University’s vague and confusing “Conflict of Interest/Outside Activities” policy. Instead of coming to his aid, Tracy’s faculty union representatives, including representatives and officials from UFF and FEA, conspired with and aided the University in terminating Tracy’s tenured employment—denying him meaningful representation and defense against the University’s threatened discipline.

Despite repeated assurances made by Tracy’s union representatives that a response and grievance would be filed for Tracy in a timely manner, as required by the University’s collective bargaining agreement, Tracy’s representatives failed to ever file a response or grievance, resulting in Professor Tracy’s automatic termination on January 6, 2016.
