Iowa Democratic party altered precinct's caucus results during chaotic night

In the Iowa Democratic party’s chaotic attempt to report caucus results on Monday night, the results in at least one precinct were unilaterally changed by the party as it attempted to deal with the culmination of a rushed and imperfect process overseeing the first-in-the-nation nominating contest.

In Grinnell Ward 1, the precinct where elite liberal arts college Grinnell College is located, 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night. However, the Iowa Democratic party decided to shift one delegate from Sanders to Clinton on the night and did not notify precinct secretary J Pablo Silva that they had done so. Silva only discovered that this happened the next day, when checking the precinct results in other parts of the county.

Ted Cruz, the junior Senator from Texas and presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is routinely billed by the mainstream media as a Tea Party outsider who is reviled by fellow Republicans as a “wacko bird” along with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and GOP Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan. It is not simply his wife’s connection to Goldman Sachs and investment banking or his unreported loan from the multinational investment banking firm, however, that betrays this image. A closer look at Cruz reveals he is a neocon insider, not a renegade outsider.

Serious flaw discovered in Avast's security-focused SafeZone browser

Several antivirus vendors have taken the open-source Chromium browser and created derivatives that they claim are more privacy-friendly and secure. Yet, at least two of them were recently found to have serious flaws that don’t exist in Chromium.

The latest example is the Avast SafeZone browser, internally known as Avastium, which is installed with the paid versions of Avast’s antivirus and security suites. Google Project Zero researcher Tavis Ormandy found a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to take control of Avastium when opening an attacker-controlled URL in any other locally installed browser.

By exploiting the flaw, an attacker could remotely read “files, cookies, passwords, everything,” Ormandy said in a report that he sent to Avast in December and which he made public Wednesday. “He can even take control of authenticated sessions and read email, interact with online banking, etc.”

"Which probably means never?" he asked with a rhetoric emphasis. "Reading such bellicose resolutions makes sense only by way of regular monitoring of the current situation at European organizations." "You call in your resolution to respect the free and sovereign choice of the Crimeans to walk down the European pathway, but please respect the Crimeans’ choice not to go to Europe together with those who never asked them where to go," he said.

Moscow sees no sense in modernising arms control deal due to NATO military activity

"We consider as senseless additional responsibilities in the arms control - on the background of the anti-Russian direction of the NATO training, curbing of the military contacts between NATO and Russia - modernisation of the Vienna document is senseless," The deputy defense minister said in 2015 Russia received all inspection groups under the Vienna document. "If the dialogue on the arms control in Europe resumes, the control mechanism should be different from the one used under CFE (Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe). Nowadays, conventional arms may be compared in potential with nuclear arms, the list of "strategic" system is expanding - there is no limiting to calculating cannons and tanks". The official noted that NATO’s representatives have been inviting the Russian Defense Ministry to "talk on the phone" with the purpose to accuse Russia of the crisis between Moscow and Brussels.

Diplomat: Turkey one of most unfavorable states in terms of observing rights of Russians

"In the sphere of ensuring rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of Russian citizens, Turkey is one of the most unfavorable countries in the world," Dolgov said. "We annually register at least 1,000 addresses and complaints of Russian citizens to consular offices of the Russian Federation in Turkey. This happens because of fraud and manipulation of different Turkish companies and organizations (insurance, real estate, banking, etc.). ungrounded and biased actions of state agencies and structures, including policemen (illegal arrests of Russian citizens, their detention in unacceptable conditions, and so on), courts (especially in cases of lawsuits dealing with custody rights for children born in Russian-Turkish families) and so on. The Turkish side "systematically ignores its commitments to timely inform Russia’s consular offices about detention and other types of freedom deprivation of Russian citizens, despite their respective demands," the commissioner noted.

Switzerland, blood gold capital of the world

Over the millennia the mining of gold has driven some of the world’s most brutal practices, as armed militias enslave entire populations, forcing them to mine with their bare hands or use rudimental tools at the blade of a machete or point of a gun. There is nothing new about ‘blood gold’, it’s just that you had no idea that you were likely supporting it when you bought that special piece of jewelry for your partner or relative. From cheap high street retail chains to the fashion houses of Paris and New York, blood gold adorns us all.

By proposing a $10 per barrel tax on every barrel of oil produced in the U.S., Obama wants to add a .25 cent gas tax on every gallon of gas you purchase at the pump. He wants to use it to pay for his green transportation initiatives.

Considering federal gas tax is 18.4 cents a gallon currently, this would mean a whopping 136% increase.

Russia's Lukoil sells 230 gas stations in Lithuania, Latvia and Poland

The deal will be closed in the second half of 2016 after getting approval from regulatory authorities of Lithuania, Latvia, and Poland. In April 2015 Lukoil already sold its 100% participation interest in its Ukrainian subsidiary having 240 gas stations and 6 oil depots to AMIC. "The decision to sell the retail chain in Lithuania, Latvia and Poland was made within the framework of the program on optimization of Lukoil’s retail assets structure in Europe," the company said. It was reported earlier Lukoil listed its assets in Lithuania and Latvia for sale. The decision was made because of higher anti-Russian sentiments in these countries, President of the Russian oil major Vagit Alekperov said earlier. Lukoil’s strategy does not address expansion in Europe in the coming years, Alekperov said.

Flint Officials Could Have Prevented Lead Crisis for $80 a Day, Broke Federal Law Instead

By Claire Bernish

“It’s outrageous that this sort of government-made catastrophe would happen anywhere in the United States,” Representative Justin Amash said Wednesday as he opened his allotted time period to question a panel before Congress about the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan. “The State of Michigan needs to provide comprehensive assistance to the people of Flint; and the state has the resources, I can assure you that as a former state legislator.”

In his characteristic calm and collected manner, Amash quickly pulled the painful truth from just two members of the decidedly small four-member panel — the lead contamination of the Flint water supply wouldn’t have happened if the city had followed the law...

Russia says Turkey systematically violates Open Skies Treaty

Earlier this week, Turkey violated the Open Skies Treaty by refusing to allow Russian inspectors to carry out an observation flight scheduled for February 1-5. This is not the first case when Ankara violates its international commitments, Antonov said. "In December 2015, the Turkish side closed for the Russian observation aircraft a part of airspace along the Syrian border and the Diyarbakir airfield (housing NATO aviation) earlier provided for use for the treaty’s aims. In October 2015, Turkey advised "in a mandatory manner" to delay the Russian observation mission due to carrying out a security operation. Russia agreed and postponed the flight. In 2014, a Turkish escort group said it was impossible to ensure the flights’ security in certain areas of the country’s airspace citing intense flights of combat aviation involved in the anti-terrorism operation. In February 2013, Ankara closed for observation the positions of the Patriot surface-to-air missile system in southern Turkey.

When a real pandemic devastates humanity, one of the primary causes of mass death will be the refusal of health authorities to even consider the realm of natural medicine as a source of plant-based cures.

Instead of looking for answers to a pandemic from across the entire realm of existing medicine (herbal medicine, indigenous medicine, naturopathic medicine, etc.), today's corrupt institution of for-profit medicine is only interested in patented pharmaceuticals or vaccines, even when such interventions might take years to produce.

BREAKING: State Dept Spokesman John Kirby Violates Russian Airspace

Social media and other unnamed sources are reporting that US State Dept spokesman John Kirby has openly violated Russian airspace, in an obvious act of aggression against the Russian people.

Witnesses say that Kirby took off from an undisclosed location in Unkraine, flying his vintage single engine Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft, with a premeditated plan to invade Russia.

Reports said that Kirby was wearing a brown leather bomber jacket, a long wool scarf, his big boy deep sea diver mask, and a vintage WW1 leather flying helmet.

Kirby was seen loading a duffel bag full of hand grenades into the aircraft cockpit before taking off, and when questioned about his flight plan, Kirby stated his only mission was "to kill as many Ruskies as possible, because God told him to".

Note this report is not an accusation, it’s a fact.

Ukraine receives first fuel batch from US Westinghouse for NPP this year — minister

The first batch of 42 fuel assemblies from the US-based Westinghouse has arrived for Ukrainian nuclear power plants this year, Energy and Coal Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn said on Friday. "Five out of thirteen deliveries will be made by Westinghouse [the other deliveries will be carried out by Russia]. This is far from [energy] independence but gives a possibility to hold talks with confidence on the terms and the price of deliveries," the minister said. The Ukrainian energy and coal minister said earlier that in 2016 Ukraine would import "40% of nuclear fuel from Europe," meaning that the Westinghouse plant producing fuel assemblies for Ukraine was based in Sweden.

In 2014, Ukraine extended its contract with Westinghouse to 2020.

BREAKING NEWS: List of Withheld JFK Assassination Documents

The list was obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request by FOIA specialist Michael Ravnitzky, who alerted us.

The complete list is below. You’ll note that some documents are briefly characterized by subject, while others are less clearly identified.

The government has promised to release as many documents as possible in October, 2017, the 25th anniversary of the JFK Records Act, in which Congress mandated that all efforts be made to release everything in Washington’s possession unless an overriding case can be made for withholding in the national interest.

Some — perhaps most — of these documents could be released at that time. Then again, they may be further withheld. The CIA in particular is likely to argue that some are just too sensitive to be made public.

Moscow denies Ankara's accusations of using banned types of weapons in Syria

"The use of any banned types of weapons by the Russian warplanes is excluded," the ministry said adding Turkey’s information campaign against Russia could be used for preparing the Turkish population for Turkey’s active military involvement in Syria. "This time, the situation with refugees from Syrian districts where Turkmen live compactly has become the subject of unfounded accusations. The materials that are being published assert categorically that refugees are moving towards the border with Turkey as a result of the Russian air task force’s actions. They say that the Russian aircraft are allegedly delivering strikes against civilian targets, using incendiary and cluster bombs. These assertions have nothing to do with reality and are made in an extremely emotional tone.

New Hampshire combats voter fraud, requiring ID for 1st time in primary

New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary makes history every four years, and on Feb. 9 it will do so for an additional reason.

This year, for the first time, primary voters will have to show ID.

"I think there are definitely going to be lines, with any indication of our absentee balloting already -- it’s huge," said Kerri Parker, the town clerk of Meredith, N.H., and president of the New Hampshire Town and City Clerks Association.

"People are concerned, they want to get out, they want their voice to be heard, which is great," she said, but cautioned that "the only thing they need to remember is to bring their ID's to the polls. … We have to see your ID because of voter fraud."

Janet Yellen has been in the news with her often-stated determination to create price inflation.

Why Fed officials are so scared to death of the deflation we all look for at the shopping mall each weekend is anybody’s guess. Ours is that it keeps the crony banking system and its inflated bureaucracy afloat – on a sea of green, like in a yellow submarine.

But it doesn’t really matter. The Fed can’t do what Congress has decided it needs to do, anyway. That’s because the Fed is a state-empowered monopoly. And its dictates amount to price fixing, which never works.

by Mac Slavo - Radiation Alert: L.A. Gas Well Spewing LETHAL LEVELS Of Breathable Nuclear Material: “Fukushima Class Disaster”

In a breaking development that has been completely ignored by mainstream news sources, the leaking natural gas well near Los Angeles, California is now reportedly spewing lethal levels of radioactive material, according to a report from Steve Quayle and a group with expertise in nuclear material.

A leaking natural gas well outside Los Angeles is spewing so much naturally-occurring Uranium and Radon, that “breathable” radiation levels have hit “lethal levels” according to a Nuclear Expert group.

Hal Turner of Super Station 95 reports that the well is releasing 1.91 Curies (Ci) of radiation per hour.

This rogue well is spewing huge amounts of natural gas and about 1.91 curies an hour of natural radioactive material in the natural gas… 1.91 curies an hour is about 45.9 curies per day… It’s a really, really big leak.

A curie is a unit of measure in the U.S. to describe very large radioactive releases.

The War On Savers And The 200 Rulers Of World Finance

What kind of crank economics contends that brutally punishing two of the great, historically-proven economic virtues——-thrift and prudence—-is the key to economic growth and true wealth creation?

In this age of relentless consumption and 140 character tweets, what kind of insult to common sense argues that human nature is prone to save too much, defer gratification too long, shop too sparingly and consume too little?

Forget all of their mathematical economics and DSGE model regressions. Our 200 unelected rulers are enthrall to a dogma of debt that is so primitive that it’s just plain dumb.

By purchasing existing debt with digital credit conjured from the “send” key on central bank computers, they make room for more and more of it. And they do so without the inconvenience of deferred consumption or an upward climb of interest rates owing to an imbalance of borrowings versus savings.

70% Of Jobs Added In January Were Minimum Wage Waiters And Retail Workers

For those curious where the big jump in earnings came from, the answer appears rather simple: the reason, according to the BLS' breakdown of jobs added in January (per the Establishment survey), of the 151,000 jobs added in the past month, retail trade added 58,000 jobs in January, while employment in food services and drinking places, aka waiters and bartenders, rose by 47,000 in January.

In other words, 70% of the job gains in January went to minimum wage workers.

All Job Gains Since December 2007 Have Gone To Foreign-Born Workers

We first laid out what that is last September when we said that "the one chart that matters more than ever, has little to nothing to do with the Fed's monetary policy, but everything to do with the November 2016 presidential elections in which the topic of immigration, both legal and illegal, is shaping up to be the most rancorous, contentious and divisive."

We were talking about the chart showing the cumulative addition of foreign-born and native-born workers added to US payrolls according to the BLS since December 2007, i.e., since the start of the recession/Second Great Depression.

As usually happens, it is precisely this data that gets no mention following any job report. However, with Trump and his anti-immigration campaign continuing to plow on despite the Iowa disappointment, we are confident that the chart shown below will soon be recognizable to economic and political pundits everywhere.

“The press has reporting there’s been 22 emails. There’s actually more than that," Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday.

“They do reveal classified methods. They do reveal classified sources and they do reveal human assets,” he added. “I can't imagine how anyone could be familiar with these emails, whether they’re sending them or receiving them, and not realize that these are highly classified.”

How anger changes the BRAIN: Aggression causes new nerve cells to grow which can trigger even more rage in the future

From increased anxiety to high blood pressure, it's well known that anger is bad for our health.

But a new study suggests becoming full of rage could change the structure of the brain itself, with the production of nerve cells in the hippocampus.

Activity in these new nerve cells was seen with the continuation of aggressive behaviour in an experiment involving male mice, which became increasingly angry.

This suggests that the act of getting angry makes us angrier and the cycle continues.

Citi: World economy trapped in ‘death spiral’

The global economy seems trapped in a "death spiral" that could lead to further weakness in oil prices, recession and a serious equity bear market, Citi strategists have warned.

Some analysts — including those at Citi — have turned bearish on the world economy this year, following an equity rout in January and weaker economic data out of China and the U.S.

"The world appears to be trapped in a circular reference death spiral," Citi strategists led by Jonathan Stubbs said in a report on Thursday.

"Stronger U.S. dollar, weaker oil/commodity prices, weaker world trade/petrodollar liquidity, weaker EM (and global growth)... and repeat. Ad infinitum, this would lead to Oilmageddon, a 'significant and synchronized' global recession and a proper modern-day equity bear market."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We at WRH told you this was coming; it was only a matter of when.

And please, if you have not already done so, start making some clear and definitive preparations to take care of yourself, and the people you care about.

Make sure you have long-term storable food, water purification, and extra medications for yourselves and your pets. If there is a major disruption in the supply chain (and The Baltic Dry Index has all but collapsed), you need to know that you and those you care about can be as self-reliant as possible.

If you have kids in school, should you need to get them back safely with you, understand clearly what the school policy is on releasing kids before the end of their school day. If you need to be mobile, make sure you have a bug-out kit in the car, and keep it stocked, and have a plan as to where you need to go.

Start building community with like-minded people in your neighborhoods, and see how you can be of mutual help. Find capabilities with which you can barter.

I really don't want to be "Mrs. Chicken of Hawaii, 2016", but folks; something wicked this way comes. Preparation will be the key to survival when the excrement hits the ventilator, big-time.

Russian menace pushes Sweden towards Nato

In the middle of the Baltic Sea, a chilly east wind blows across a former Cold War frontier.
After more than 20 years of strategic irrelevance, and thanks to increasingly unpredictable Russian behaviour, Gotland is back in the spotlight.
It is the latest chapter in the island's long military history, and one returning soldier is thrilled.
"It's almost a dream come true," says Lt Col Stefan Pettersson.
After a decade in civilian life, Pettersson is back in uniform, preparing to take command of the Swedish island's defences.
As he scans the snowy landscape where he and his colleagues used to train, he is still pinching himself.
"I always had a dream to come back as an officer and to do it here on Gotland and establish a new unit, it's perfect," he tells me.
The new Gotland battle group, expected to take shape by the end of next year, will number 300 full- and part-time soldiers.

These wild-ass allegations, which cannot be substantiated in fact, appear to be a further demonisation of Russia, and is the kind of smear tactic which is most generally a prelude to war.

And lastly, will someone please politely remind whoever wrote this more than insane headline, with allegations which they cannot prove in fact (because otherwise, why wouldn't they?!?) that in the age of the internet, "the big lie" went out with the dribble glass and whoopee cushion?!?

As Yemen Bleeds, British Profits from Weapons Sales “Bury Human Rights”

It is more than possible to speculate why Prime Minister David Cameron has declared it his mission to scrap the Human Rights Act – which is incorporated into the European Convention on Human Rights – it appears he simply does not believe in human rights.

For example, the fact that Saudi Arabia executed – including beheadings – forty seven people in one day last month, displaying their bodies from gibbets, failed to deter him from having British military experts to work with their Saudi counterparts, advising on which targets – and which people, it seems – to bomb in Yemen. Parliament has not been consulted, thus, without a chance to debate and vote, democracy too has been suspended.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's all about the money from the arms sales, and Cameron is utterly no less beholden to the military/industrial complex of the UK than is Obama to the military/industrial complex in the US.

And of course, to enter into deals with fanatical tyrants, who so readily kill and maim their own people, one also has to have one's conscience surgically removed; I am sure that this has been the case with both Cameron and Obama.

US claims Russia is ‘in part’ to blame for Syrian talks’ halt, misquotes UN as proof

“He [de Mistura] did cite the difficulties that the military activities by Russia and the regime are having in terms of demonstrating a good faith effort by the regime to have negotiations and talks, but I’m not privy to every issue that they’ve raised – the opposition has raised with Mr. de Mistura,” Kirby told Lee.

This comment came soon after the UN mediator suspended the peace talks just two days in, citing differences between the Syrian government and opposition delegations on the priority of humanitarian issues.

When asked if the recent military escalation by the Syrian government troops and the Russian airstrikes “basically bombed your talks,” de Mistura replied: “I’m not referring to military activities.”

US layoffs surge to 6-month high: Challenger

Layoffs surged in January to the highest levels since July as employers in the retail and energy sectors pulled out the pink slips, according to a private survey out Thursday.

U.S.-based companies announced 75,114 planned job cuts last month, up more than 200 percent from a 15-year low in December, according to global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. That figure was also 42 percent higher from a year ago.

Retailers were the biggest job cutter, despite a nearly 8 percent bump in U.S. holiday sales in 2015. The sector slashed 22,246 positions, a seven-year high.

Wal-Mart accounted for much of the payroll reductions. The nation's largest retailer said it plans to close 269 stores and expects to let go 16,000 workers.

Macy's said it will also shutter some locations this year, costing 4,820 employees their jobs.

Monsanto Actually DID Buy the BLACKWATER Mercenary Group

A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (later called Xe Services and more recently “Academi”) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it.

Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” Another association that is not surprising.

Israeli Military Censor Seeks to Expand Control to ‘Prominent’ Facebook Users

The Israeli military censor usually tries to stay out of the headlines. It’s not always easy, as several times high-profile Israel-related stories have broken in the US media first, and aren’t “allowed” in Israeli papers for days after.

Those incidents are a constant reminder that in Israel, nothing even vaguely national security-related gets published in an Israeli paper without the military censor’s say-so. Today, the military censor is trying to extend that control even further, presenting “orders” to high-profile bloggers and Facebook users, demanding they be placed under the same control.

At least 30 Israelis have received such orders. Many, like Yossi Gurvitz, are outspoken critics of the Israeli government’s policy. Gurvitz says he will be pursuing legal options to get around having to pre-submit all his criticisms to the military censor and get permission before publishing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Deliberately confusing criticism of the Israeli government with criticism of the Jewish people is a handy tactic, used by the Israeli government ever since its inception.

This will mean the end of what little freedom of speech Israelis had previously known, and the beginning of even more draconian, Orwellian propaganda by the state, which the Israeli people will be ORDERED to believe, and never dare question.

As Americans Prep for Super Bowl Sunday, Their Future Is Being Sold to the Corporate Elite

By Claire Bernish

“Films, football, beer, and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult….” ? George Orwell, 1984

As Americans train their attention to Super Bowl 50, their way of life — and for nearly half a million people, their livelihoods — just got one step closer to being signed away. This Thursday, in Auckland, New Zealand, representatives of the twelve nations participating in the Trans-Pacific Partnership gathered to sign the massive trade deal turned corporate coup, bringing an end to the obligatory 90-day period ostensibly set aside for debate, following the close of five years of negotiations in October...
