BOMBSHELL: EVIDENCE SHOWS CLINTON RAN A PARALLEL, OUTSOURCED STATE DEPT.

The real scandal surrounding Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s private email system may be that she was running, in concert with a private consulting firm tied closely to George Soros, an outsourced and parallel State Department answerable only to her and not President Obama, the Congress, or the American people.

US Defense Secretary Predicts Terror Attacks on Russia

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, in comments mocking Russia’s “unprofessional” military for the way it is conducting airstrikes against ISIS, predicted that Russia would face “reprisal” terror attacks on Russian soil because of their military action.

Earlier this week a group of Saudi clerics issued a joint statement urging jihad against Russia for its support for the Assad government, and increasingly the narrative around the Gulf states is that Russia is taking sides with the Shi’ites against the Sunnis in general because of their Syria policy.

A top Qatari official was also quoted warning that Russia had “created a Frankenstein in the region” by backing the Assad government, warning there are 1.5 billion Muslims, and that the new call to jihad means “everyone will go to fight.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; is Ash Carter predicting attacks on Russia... or threatening to make them happen?!?

THE HORRENDOUS PHOTOS THE TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY NEVER WANTS YOU TO SEE

The technology industry is growing at a faster rate. Almost all aspects of our lives are gradually depending on it. But as we continue to digitize our lives with the latest technological gadgets, we should bear in mind that it comes at a cost that is likely to derail the progress we have made as a society if we fail to regulate the activities of the tech industry.

Whereas the big players in the industry such as Apple, Microsoft, Google, IBM, HP, Cisco among others are busy accumulating huge profit, our atmosphere, our water, indigenous populations, and in the long run, our economy are all in danger.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corporations have no conscience whatsoever; they have the morals of a trout, and creating these kinds of work environments will work for a little while, and then what?!?

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

There will be a tipping point, when the exploited children in places like Africa and China will rise up, and stop their exploitation with extreme prejudice.

Selective Service Reignites Registration Campaign

About a week ago, Selective Service pamphlets began showing up again in U.S. Post Offices across the country. With conflicts on the rise across the globe, the U.S. program has once again shifted into high gear to register all eligible U.S. males, legal and illegal, between the ages of 18-25 in the event a U.S. military draft becomes necessary.

Failing to register or comply with the Military Selective Service Act is a felony punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 or a prison term of up to five years, or a combination of both. Also, a person who knowingly counsels, aids, or abets another to fail to comply with the Act is subject to the same penalties.

The Use and Abuse of Culture (and Children): The Human Terrain System’s Rationalization of Pedophilia in Afghanistan

“The Americans running the base had decided it was wrong. They worried about elder men preying sexually on young boys. They wanted to arrest the Afghan men–but the Human Terrain team persuaded the base commanders that this was an accepted part of Afghan sexual culture. I wonder how long it will be before the anthropologists start telling the military that what they think of as ’corruption’ is in reality a deeply rooted system of tribal patronage in Afghanistan that they should accept.” (Curtis 2010)

MONSANTO TO CUT 2,600 JOBS AS GMO SEED SALES FALL

And this isn’t the first time Monsanto has experienced a serious slump in sales. Back in February of this year, I told you about the ‘beginning of the serious decline’ for both Monsanto and McDonald’s. It’s a notion that would be considered absolutely absurd not too long ago, really. McDonald’s and Monsanto were the two ‘juggernauts’ that everyone loved to hate, but felt powerless against.

They were ‘too big to fail,’ we thought. And perhaps the corporate executives thought so, too. The truth is, however, that both of these companies had decades to actually improve their practices and regain public opinion. Why didn’t McDonald’s stop using cheap fillers and toxic compounds in favor of something that’s at least somewhat higher quality? Monsanto could have actually done something about the numerous reports by mainstream media organizations that detailed Indian farmer suicides as a result of the company’s terrible farming contracts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While I am sorry for those who have lost or will lose their jobs, I am not sorry at all for the corporation Monsanto has come to be.

My great hope is, that if they do not change their business and scientific practices, that they will be sued out of existence.

WHY ARE THE IMF, THE UN, THE BIS AND CITIBANK ALL WARNING THAT AN ECONOMIC CRISIS COULD BE IMMINENT?

?The warnings are getting louder. Is anybody listening?
For months, I have been documenting on my website how the global financial system is absolutely primed for a crisis, and now some of the most important financial institutions in the entire world are warning about the exact same thing. For example, this week I was stunned to see that the Telegraph had published an article with the following ominous headline: “$3 trillion corporate credit crunch looms as debtors face day of reckoning, says IMF“. And actually what we are heading for would more accurately be described as a “credit freeze” or a “credit panic”, but a “credit crunch” will definitely work for now. The IMF is warning that the “dangerous over-leveraging” that we have been witnessing “threatens to unleash a wave of defaults” all across the globe…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As always, please don't panic; plan.

Have storable food, water purification capabilities, extra medicines for yourselves and your pets, and a way to cook food that doesn't require electricity.

Have no more money in your checking account than you actually need to pay your bills; in a pinch, there may be a "haircut" of both checking and savings accounts, as has happened in Cyprus and Greece.

Make sure you pick up small amounts of gold and/or silver consistently; if the dollar tanks, there will need to be something solid you can trade for necessities.

Find out what skills you have to barter with like-minded neighbors in a win/win environment.

And THIS is the time that President Obama is beseeching the Congress to raise the ceiling on the National Debt?!?

Why in the world is this country in debt in the first place, when it can, Constitutionally, create money as a public utility, not a debt at interest when it is first circulated?

Something is really, fundamentally wrong here, both in terms of corporate leveraging and US governmental debt.

Trey Gowdy: Clinton Emails Name CIA Source, Push Action in Libya

Hillary Clinton's confidant Sidney Blumenthal names a CIA source and pushes action in Libya, partly to promote business interests, Trey Gowdy says in a letter about new emails his committee plans to release.

The House Benghazi Select Committee plans to release the emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prior to her testimony later this month.

Oct 09 12:15

Newly disclosed emails mean more trouble for Hillary

Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, has told Elijah Cummings, his Democratic counterpart on the committee, that he will soon release 1,500 pages of new Hillary Clinton emails concerning Libya that the State Department recently turned over. A “small number” of them pertain to the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. compound, Gowdy said.

In his letter to Cummings, Gowdy also revealed that many of the emails in question involve Sid Blumenthal.

Gowdy says new emails show Clinton confidant naming CIA source, pushing Libya interests

Longtime Hillary Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal allegedly sent her an email with the name of a CIA source, further casting doubt on her claim she never sent or received classified information on her private email address, according to the Republican chairman of the committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is nonsense. The job of Secretary of State involves a great deal of classified information. If Hillary was not using her official government email, and insists there was no classified emails on her private server, then what server DID she use for the classified information and why hasn't it been surrendered to the Benghazi investigation?

BEX ALERT - Judge says Hillary Clinton’s server is private

A federal judge ordered the State Department Wednesday to request former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton not delete any government business emails she may still have, but said he doubts he can force her to do anything.

Judge Reggie B. Walton said since Mrs. Clinton used her own BlackBerry and computer devices, and kept her email server at her home, he doesn’t have authority over the records she created on those.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wrong, your dishonor; the emails in question were not created by Hillary but by US Government agencies, and hence are the property of the public. In point of fact the judge does have the authority to order Hillary to turn them all over, just as judges have been ordering ordinary Americans to turn over their PRIVATE data from their phones and tablets. The hypocrisy on this is stunning, to say the least, and further reinforces the public perception of yet another high-level government cover-up!

Prosecutor Justifies Charges Against Man for "Criminal Defamation of Jews" in Montana

The case of David Joseph Lenio has received some attention but the prosecutor's arguments deserve a closer look - particularly since Lenio faces up to ten years in prison on the 'criminal defemation of jews' charge alone. As we reported last month, Lenio has been let out on bail and the awaits trial. In the 'State's response to the defendants motion to dismiss,' Montana prosecutor Stacy Bowman argues that the statute is constitutional, and that the MO legislature previously ammended their "criminal defamation" statute because it had been found to be "unconstitutionally overbroad." It's no longer overbroad, prosecutors say, because it now 'provides truth as a complete defense to criminal defamation.'

TODAY WE ARE happy to announce a monumental legal victory for Mother Jones: A judge in Idaho has ruled in our favor on all claims in a defamation case filed by a major Republican donor, Frank VanderSloot, and his company, Melaleuca Inc. In a decision issued Tuesday, the court found that Mother Jones did not defame VanderSloot or Melaleuca because "all of the statements at issue are non-actionable truth or substantial truth." The court also found that the statements were protected as fair comment under the First Amendment.

UK: A couple in their mid-20s whose baby was adopted after they were wrongfully accused of abuse have been told that they unlikely to have the child returned

A couple in their mid-20s whose baby was adopted after they were wrongfully accused of abuse have been told that they unlikely to have the child returned.
Karrissa Cox and Richard Carter, both aged 25, live in Guildford, Surrey. In 2012, they noticed bleeding in their baby’s mouth after feeding the infant, and went to the local A&E. Doctors found minor bruising and crucially, what appeared to bone fractures in the process of healing when the baby was X-rayed. The couple were arrested and charged with child cruelty.

Nobel Peace Prize for Peace

Alfred Nobel's will, written in 1895, left funding for a prize to be awarded to "the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

Most winners in recent years have either been people who did nice things that had nothing whatsoever to do with the relevant work (Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai for promoting education, Liu Xiaobo for protesting in China, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. for opposing climate change, Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank for economic development, etc.) or people who actually engaged in militarism and would have opposed the abolition or reduction of standing armies if asked, and one of whom said so in his acceptance speech (the European Union, Barack Obama, etc.).

Finally US Officials Are Asking Toyota How Exactly ISIS Got Hundreds of Its Trucks

The U.S. Treasury Department’s “Terror Financing Unit” (wow, the name sounds like the unit that actually finances terror, how Orwellian) whose task it is to make sure Western goods don’t end up in the hands of terrorists is finally asking Toyota something we’ve all been wondering for a long time now:

Why do all these ISIS videos and pictures that come out look like Middle Eastern Toyota truck commercials?

(I’m paraphrasing.)

Via ABC News:

U.S. counter-terror officials have asked Toyota, the world’s second largest auto maker, to help them determine how ISIS has managed to acquire the large number of Toyota pick-up trucks and SUVs seen prominently in the terror group’s propaganda videos in Iraq, Syria and Libya, ABC News has learned…

BEX Alert!!! - "New York's De Blasio to Visit Israel Next Week for First Time as Mayor"

The mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, will visit Israel next weekend in his first official trip to the country since he took office in January 2014, his office was quoted as saying in U.S. media.

According to the New York mayor's office, de Blasio is flying to Israel to participate in the Annual Conference of Mayors in Jerusalem on Sunday October 18, where he will deliver the keynote speech. According to Politico, the mayor is expected to talk about the rise of anti-Semitism and how cities must lead the fight against the phenomenon.

The Jerusalem conference is being held under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress, American Council for World Jewry, and World Forum of Russian-Speaking Jewry, the Jewish Insider reported, saying it would bring together scores of mayors from around the globe.

Today’s College Shooting: Guns and Death Top Story so that Russia and Syria Aren’t

There was another school shooting today and it’s taking top billing as the top news story of the day on all major networks. All press resources are apparently being directed to North Arizona University where one student is dead and three others are injured after a freshman opened fire on a group of students.

While this is being reported on with all the drama and caliber of a mass shooting like, say, the Oregon shooting, if you actually read the story, you’ll find out it isn’t the same at all.

Two groups of students got into a fight that escalated to this shooting. One of the groups involved Delta Chi Fraternity members. One guy had a gun. The suspect did not leave the scene and was promptly arrested without further incident according to USA Today. This is nothing like the traditional mass shooting that the media usually pounces on.

In fact, worse shooting altercation stories come out of Chicago on any given weekend.

Mainstream Media Touting "Unconfirmed Reports" Russia Just Accidentally Bombed Iran

This is propaganda in action. In fact, if we taught a course specifically on mainstream media propaganda, we'd use this clip from CNN today as a perfect example.

Moscow is denying this and no one at the U.S. State Dept. is confirming it at this time... but look at how they run with it like it's a fact (and even use the word "fact") when this is, by definition, no such thing.

How they can call this "news" with a straight face is their real talent.

Clinton server hack attempts came from China, Korea, Germany

At least five cyberattack tries were apparently blocked by a "threat monitoring" product that was connected to her network in October 2013, eight months after she left office. But for more than three months earlier that year, her system was not protected by the security product because it had not been installed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

And just to make it easier for you to post to the comments sections on corporate media websites, here are two text versions for you to cut and paste, depending on how much room you are allowed.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

(smaller) ---------------

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

Islamic State is training militants from Russia in Afghanistan as part of its efforts to expand into Central Asia, a senior Russian diplomat told a security conference in Moscow. He added that US and UK passport holders are among the instructors.

“There are several camps operated by [Islamic State, previously ISIS/ISIL, in Afghanistan] that train people from Central Asia and some regions of Russia. They speak Russian there,” said Zamir Kabulov, President Putin’s special representative for Afghanistan.

He added that there is a wide national variety of instructors in those camps. There are Arabs, Pakistanis and even people with US and British citizenship, he said.

Shock and Awe in Syria

Syrian Human Rights Observatory reports a dozen Saudi officers killed outside Homs!
The Syrian army fought heavy battles with insurgents for control of a hilltop in a mountainous range close to Leticia’s coastal heartland, local and witnesses says.
The fighting was centered around Jub al Ahmar, a highland area in Latakia province which would allow the army to more effectively pound rebel positions in the nearby Ghab Plain, said Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the discredited London Based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, believed to be a CIA front tied to al Qaeda.
Webmaster addition: The Syrian Human Rights Observatory is run by just one guy out of a two-bedroom house in Coventry, England. He has not even been in Syria for the last 15 years. In other words, like SITE, or MEMRI, the Syrian Human Rights Observatory is a manufactured propaganda front.

Pentagon halts program to train militants in Syria

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that he “wasn’t happy with the early efforts” of the program, “so we have devised a number of different approaches.”

'Russia is Defending Europe by Fighting Terrorists in the Middle East'

Instead of using this opportunity to present a united front against Islamic extremism, the United States and NATO have only criticized Moscow for its anti-terrorism efforts employing rhetoric reminiscent of the Cold War era.

It should come as no surprise, since Washington, according to the analyst, has no intention to tackle ISIL. "When we look at the US operations and compare them to the ones undertaken by Russia we can clearly see that it's Russia who is trying to fight the terrorist threat in the Middle East, not the United States," he pointed out.

Moreover, the US is using the refugee crisis to its own advantage, Piskorski noted. He mentioned that American foundations are sponsoring NGOs across Europe that are assisting incoming migrants. But Washington appears not to be driven by humanitarian concerns.

Turning point? EU Commission head says relations with Russia ‘must be improved,’ US ‘can’t dictate’

Drip! Drip! Drip! The US is losing its friends and allies.
It is high time that Americans and not old Polish whackos or Jewish dual loyalist neocons run America and its government! Spirit of 76!

Europe must treat Russia with more decency, improve the relationship, and not let EU policies be dictated by Washington, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said in a surprise speech in Germany.

It is now critical for the EU to work on its relations with Russia, Juncker said in the southern German town of Passau: “We must make efforts towards a practical relationship with Russia. It is not sexy but that must be the case, we can’t go on like this.”

Moreover, the US needs to keep its influence out of EU relations with other countries, Juncker added.

“Russia must be treated decently … We can’t let our relationship with Russia be dictated by Washington.”

Report of Russian missile crash in Iran is US psyop: Former US Senate candidate

Reports of Russian missiles falling in Iran lies, part of psychological war - Iranian general

Western media reports of Russian missiles hitting Iran are “blatant lies” and part of a campaign of psychological warfare, a top Iranian military commander said. CNN claimed four Russian cruise missiles fell in Iran instead of continuing toward Syria.

“We have no reports of any Russian missiles crashing in Iran,” Gen. Musa Kamali told Russian news agency Sputnik. “All those media reports alleging that Russian missiles aiming at Syria hit Iran are blatant lies.”

“If the people making those claims had any proof, they would have certainly presented it,” he said. “The US made similar allegations in the past as part of their psychological warfare against whoever opposes their policies in the region.”

Study Shows No Correlation Between Violent Crime and Gun Laws

After every mass shooting, you can expect the gun control crowd to make the same exact argument that they’ve been trying to make for decades. They will tell you that in every country with limited access to firearms, there are fewer firearm related deaths, both by homicide and by suicide. In most cases this is probably true, with the exception of a few crime ridden hell holes that would probably have a high crime rate, regardless of how many guns are legally available.

This way the case of Ukraine, when George argued that democracy is the most important and when he says that European values are most important and that is why we must accept million refugees every year. How will it end? Probably as usual: fires, riots, overthrowing governments and total destabilization in Europe, more or less as it ended up recently in Ukraine. However, this time, ‘democracy’ and European values are installed on a much wider scale and by pretty determined are going to bring a ‘colour revolution’ from the Middle East to the heart of dying Europe.

These facts are certain and actionable to demand arrests of US .01% “leaders” now in order to avoid risk of WW3:
Unlawful and lie-began wars,
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt.
Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution.

No Syria-bound Russian missiles landed in Iran: Moscow

A senior Russian military official has vehemently rejected US allegations that Russian cruise missiles launched from the Caspian Sea and aimed at Daesh positions in Syria have crashed in Iran.

"Any professional knows that during these operations we always fix the target before and after impact. All our cruise missiles hit their target," Russia's Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said in a statement on Thursday.

The remarks came in response to earlier claims by two unnamed US officials that a number of Russian Syria-bound projectiles landed in Iran on Wednesday. One official told CNN news network on Thursday that there may be casualties, while another said it is not yet known.

Russia began airstrikes against ISIS in Syria on September 30th. It’s been just over a week and we’re already getting reports like this one (via Sputnik):

Around 40 percent of Islamic State infrastructure in Syria has been destroyed since Russia began its military operation in the country, Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riad Haddad told Sputnik on Wednesday.

“According to our data, about 40 percent [was destroyed]. In addition, a lot of terrorists have been killed. Now, they are retreating toward the Turkish border, as this country has traditionally provided them with protection,” Haddad said.

Free Thought vs. Social Conformity

As celebrated thinker Edward de Bono notes: ‘If everyone is going in the same direction, then anyone who is going in a different direction is “wrong”. The other direction might be better – but it is still wrong.’

Such is the powerful pull of social conformity. People cannot be fully trusted to say and do what they think is right if others around them are all expressing an opposite opinion. This is because the pull towards social conformity, whether conscious or unconscious, is just too strong. The danger here is that in such environments a person is more likely to give away their personal responsibility than act upon it. A group more generally exhibits a lack of responsibility on the part of its members since each person thinks that the overall responsibility can be shared. Since there is no individual blame to be accrued, a person tends to relinquish their own personal responsibility.

The result is that each person reinforces the other’s inertia. Thus, non-action actually becomes the accepted norm within the group. This inertia is then reinforced and validated, often through personal rationalization, since so much has been invested in the group. To be wrong could inflict much angst upon an individual; it is therefore better to rationalize one’s actions as correct. This ‘fear of responsibility’ is a product of socialization and renders an individual less capable of dealing fluidly with the uncertainties and complexities of a full life.

And the whole free world feels the same.

What I admire about him is his cool demeanor and very artful tact in how he approaches massively sensitive subjects. He has to cloak it in “diplomati-speak” of course to reach the type of audience within those bound up layers of communication, but he does it masterfully.

The Deadly Fraud of "American Exceptionalism"

Doubtless you have heard more than once the term "American Exceptionalism." It implies, in short, that we are somehow special, different, superior. We are the "city upon a hill" whose freedoms and accomplishments set us apart. Alexis de Tocqueville coined the phrase midway through the 19th century, and it has enjoyed constant deployment by politicians and pundits ever since, because it lights a warm bulb of self-satisfaction in many bellies ... and people feeling good about themselves are easier to convince. Salesmen thrived on this axiom before Babylon's bricks were laid.

"They fought each other, destroyed the Indians, after that they perpetrated slavery, then there was the civil war," he said.

"After that, they were the first to use the atomic bomb...No, I prefer being Russian."

He added: "If the Europeans stopped listening to the Americans, well, I'd be a lot happier."

Oklahoma Reportedly Used The Wrong Drug In A January Execution

Oklahoma used the wrong drug to stop an inmate's heart during an execution in January, according to an autopsy report obtained by a newspaper.

The Oklahoman reported Thursday that corrections officials used potassium acetate — not potassium chloride, as required under the state's protocol — to execute Charles Frederick Warner.

Last week, Gov. Mary Fallin issued a last-minute stay for inmate Richard Glossip after officials discovered that potassium acetate had been delivered on the day of his scheduled execution. All executions in Oklahoma are on hold at the request of Attorney General Scott Pruitt as the state investigates the mix-up.

Potassium chloride, which stops the heart, is the final drug in the state's protocol following a sedative and paralytic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no bleeding heart on crime; but until the State can restore the life it has accidentally taken, because DNA evidence has been mishandled, or handled cavalierly (which frequently happens in the US), states and the Federal Government should not be in the business of execution.

Getting convicted of a capital crime should result in life at hard labor, with every cent going back to the victim's family.

Children Who Live Near Fukushima Have Alarming Cancer Rates

A new study says children living near the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer at a rate 20 to 50 times that of children elsewhere, a difference the authors contend undermines the government's position that more cases have been discovered in the area only because of stringent monitoring.

Most of the 370,000 children in Fukushima prefecture (state) have been given ultrasound checkups since the March 2011 meltdowns at the tsunami-ravaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The most recent statistics, released in August, show that thyroid cancer is suspected or confirmed in 137 of those children, a number that rose by 25 from a year earlier. Elsewhere, the disease occurs in only about one or two of every million children per year by some estimates.

"This is more than expected and emerging faster than expected," lead author Toshihide Tsuda told The Associated Press during a visit to Tokyo. "This is 20 times to 50 times what would be normally expected."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the Japanese people have not thrown out every politician who was "serving" at the time of the Fukushima disaster, and prevented TEPCO from doing business in their country, still amazes me.

The health damage and deaths from this preventable catastrophe will haunt the Japanese people for a long time to come.

SUPREME COURT SAYS MANDATORY VACCINATIONS DON’T VIOLATE CHILDREN’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

?The SCOTUS’s failure to hear the case effectively states that mandatory vaccination of all public school children, doesn’t violate their constitutional rights.
A lower court had ruled that the school vaccination requirement, which three parents had legally challenged after their unvaccinated children were prohibited from attending school, did not violate the constitutional rights of the children.

The appeals court also upheld a decision that children exempted from vaccinations due to religious reasons could be prohibited from school attendance in the event of a disease outbreak that is vaccine preventable.

According to a report by the Associated Press:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm betting on two factors here.

First, no member of the Supreme Court has family members going to public schools, so the possibility of life-threatening adverse reactions to vaccines doesn't affect them personally.

And second, that several members of the Supreme Court, well enough to sway a decision on the issue, own stock in pharmaceutical companies.

This issue has never been about public health; it has always been about private profit.

That Awkward Moment When One Nobel Peace Prize Winner Bombs Another

Doctors Without Borders won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. President Obama was awarded his in 2009. As Commander-in-Chief of the military that bombed the Doctors Without Borders hospital, this makes Obama perhaps the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to bomb another Nobel Peace Prize winner. Or maybe not? Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, and he masterminded the secret bombing of Cambodia and Laos for President Nixon around that time. Shortly thereafter, it came to light that in that campaign, hospitals were routinely targeted for bombing...

CHINA, RUSSIA, NORWAY, BRAZIL, TAIWAN DUMP US TREASURIES

Five large purchasers of US Treasuries – China, Russia, Norway, Brazil, and Taiwan – have changed their minds. They’re dumping Treasuries, each for their own reasons that are now coinciding. And at the fastest rate on record.

For the 12-month period ended July, sales of Treasuries by central banks around the world reached a net of $123 billion, “the biggest decline since data started to be collected in 1978,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

China, the largest foreign owner of Treasuries – its hoard peaking at $1.317 trillion in November 2013 – has been unloading with particular passion. By July, the latest data available from the US Treasury Department, China’s pile was down to $1.241 trillion. But in August, the real selling started when the yuan suddenly spiraled down further after its devaluation. Panicked, and fearful of losing control over their currency, officials at the People’s Bank of China sold Treasuries and bought yuan to stabilize the currency.

A SHORT HISTORY OF U.S. BOMBING OF CIVILIAN FACILITIES

On October 3, a U.S. AC-130 gunship attacked a hospital run by Médecins Sans Frontières in Kunduz, Afghanistan, partially destroying it. Twelve staff members and 10 patients, including three children, were killed, and 37 people were injured. According to MSF, the U.S. had previously been informed of the hospital’s precise location, and the attack continued for 30 minutes after staff members desperately called the U.S. military.

The U.S. first claimed the hospital had been “collateral damage” in an airstrike aimed at “individuals” elsewhere who were “threatening the force.” Since then, various vague and contradictory explanations have been offered by the U.S. and Afghan governments, both of which promise to investigate the bombing. MSF has called the attack a war crime and demanded an independent investigation by a commission set up under the Geneva Conventions.

Russia historian Stephen Cohen points to the neoconservative establishment for America's latest outbreak of what can only be referred to as late-stage imperial dementia. Neocons Robert Kagan and wife Victoria Nuland have certainly done the heavy lifting to make Ukraine the staging ground for what appears to be a NATO blitzkrieg on Moscow. But whatever the determination of the neocon plot, they are only the barking dogs of master imperialist Zbigniew Brzezinski, whose grand design has been creeping over the globe since he stepped into the Oval office as National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter in 1977.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For you Doctor Who fans, have you noticed how much Zbigniew Brzezinski looks (and acts) like Davros? :)

Two Reasons People Can’t Stop Watching Drunk UConn Kid’s Mac and Cheese Arrest Video

By now, you may have seen the viral video of the drunk 19-year-old University of Connecticut student cussing out and shoving around a manager (who shows incredible restraint) at a campus eatery because he just wants his “f*cking bacon jalapeño mac and cheese”.

For almost ten minutes this kid, now identified as Luke V. Gatti of Bayville, New York, drunkenly refuses to leave the cafeteria without the macaroni and cheese after he shows up there with an open alcohol container completely drunk and gets denied service for not only underage drinking on campus, but for throwing a fit over pasta to the point that he assaults the manager multiple times, flipping him off and repeatedly calling him a “f*cking tool” and a “f*cking fag” among other brilliant retorts (not the way to get mac and cheese, we’re thinking).

After one more shove, finally an older cook comes out from the back and he and the manager wrestle the kid to the ground until the cops show up.

I think Trump just got President Putin's endorsement!

Donald Trump a hit in Russia? You wouldn’t think so. But the mayor of Yalta in Crimea has wished the maverick Republican success in the 2016 presidential election and invited him to visit the city, hinting that a street may be renamed after him.

The FBI’s Investigation Of Hillary Just Had A Major New Development That Can’t Be Good For Her

One Platte River employee wrote to another employee that he was “Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy (sic) s—.”

“I just think if we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups, and that we can go public with our statement saying we have backups since day one, then we were told to trim to 30days (sic), it would make us look a WHOLE LOT better,” the unnamed employee continued.
