Motion filed to block State from delaying release of Clinton emails

The journalist who forced the State Department to release thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails is opposing the government’s efforts to delay the final release by one month, warning the extension would cause "irrevocable harm."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fox News is reporting that this motion is moving forward.

It was ridiculous for the State Department to blame the weekend snowstorm for a one-month delay, and it is clear that the real goal was to delay the next batch of emails until after Iowa and New Hampshire ... which tells us there is something really damning in this coming batch.

FLASHBACK - FBI blocked in corruption probe involving Sens. Reid, Lee

FBI agents working alongside Utah state prosecutors in a wide-ranging corruption investigation have uncovered accusations of wrongdoing by two of the U.S. Senate’s most prominent figures — Majority Leader Harry Reid and rising Republican Sen. Mike Lee — but the Justice Department has thwarted their bid to launch a full federal investigation.

The probe, conducted by one Republican and one Democratic state prosecutor in Utah, has received accusations from an indicted businessman and political donor, interviewed other witnesses and gathered preliminary evidence such as financial records, Congressional Record statements and photographs that corroborate some aspects of the accusations, officials have told The Washington Times and ABC News.

FLASHBACK - Justice Department reportedly blocked FBI probe over Reid, Lee accusations

The Justice Department reportedly has blocked the FBI from launching a federal probe into accusations involving Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, leaving agents to work with local prosecutors to examine the evidence on the side.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary has created one hell of a mess; a scandal too big to sweep under the rug or blame on the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (Reg TM Clinton).

Normally the FBI would just pretend to investigate and declare that although there were some "mistakes", they did find a "shred" of evidence. But that can no longer work with the public aware of the hard facts, including the damning instruction from Hillary to her staff to delete the classification headings on a document so that it could be sent unsecured (a felony) and the presence of Top Secret/SAP documents on her private server when they are not supposed to exist anywhere outside the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System. The FBI cannot drop the case without destroying their own legitimacy and credibility (in the minds of those who do now know the real FBI). So I am going to reverse myself; I think the FBI will recommend charges. It will be a watered-down list, and not even address the question of whather Hillary was selling secrets from her private server to foreign governments and collecting/laundering the payments through her "charity."

That drops the whole mess into Obama's lap, via his Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

If Lynch refuses to prosecute, then Obama is seen as covering for Hillary for the next election. That is not a stain Obama wants in his final year in office as he works on his legacy. And it is not secret that the Obamas and Clintons hate each other. Obama would probably be perfectly happy to let Lynch actually do her job.

But according to Larry Nichols, Hillary has already sent a message that if she is charged with any crime, she will blow the whistle on all the dirt she knows and bring down the entire government.

Hillary has become a live liability for the establishment, and live liabilities do not stay alive very long. As concerned as I am about someone taking a shot at Trump, I think Hillary has worked herself into a situation where she is in real danger.

I note that Biden is starting to surface again, publicly regretting his decision not to run, apparently warming up in the bull pen to step in as Hillary's relief and ride the wave of sympathy for her into his first term in office.

This dangerous official state poster encouraged Flint residents to bathe babies in poisoned water

Flint, Michigan continues to grapple with the poisoning of its water supply system. For months the city government of Flint and the state government of Michigan— led by Governor Rick Snyder— ignored scientists, researchers and the citizens of economically depressed Flint who rang alarm bells about the toxic water supply. Instead, they encouraged the people of Flint to drink the water, bathe in the water, and, generally, that the water was safe. Of course the government was terribly wrong.

The debacle of neoliberal policies (Michigan’s government prioritized saving money over safe water) didn’t stop state officials from circulating an online flyer that read, “Hey Flint! It’s Safe to Wash.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The governor, and every state and Flint official who signed off on this outrage should resign en masse, and be prosecuted to the fullest extent of Michigan law for reckless public endangerment.

Skin is porous; and if you don't believe that, rub some garlic on your feet, and see just how soon you taste it.

The real upset to me is how long ago city, county, and state officials knew this water was poisoning people, but chose not to fix it because, after all, the people living here were poor, so they didn't matter, and their health, and the health of their children, was irrelevant.

HOW THE FLIP DARE THEY ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN?!?!?

The State of Michigan should be offering free chelation therapy to every kid who got exposed to this poison, and right the heck now.

What chelation therapy does is gently remove toxins in the system, which are then excreted through the kidneys. This is even recommended by the CDC.

http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/lead/acclpp/blood_lead_levels.htm

Doctors need to test kidney function first, but the chemical used is calcium disodium EDTA, and it is introduced into the body though an IV. Treatments take a couple of hours, and there may be several times it needs to be done, but then the lead levels in the blood are tested again, to make sure that the lead has been completely eliminated from the child's system.

IRA TERRORIST BEHIND 1993 BELFAST BOMBING WAS ‘MI5 INFORMANT’ – LEAKED DOCUMENTS

Northern Ireland’s police watchdog is investigating allegations that the IRA operative who planned the 1993 Shankhill Road bombing was an MI5 informant who gave intelligence that could have helped security forces stop the atrocity. Nine civilians, including two children, were killed in the attack on a fish shop in Belfast’s loyalist heartland in 1993. The bombing became one of the most notorious atrocities of The Troubles, prompting a wave of sectarian revenge murders in its wake. Inside job?

NEVADA RANCHING FAMILY LOSES FEDERAL LANDS COURT CASE

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the federal government in a long-running dispute with the late Nevada rancher Wayne Hage, remanding the case to a new federal judge because of apparent bias on the part of U.S. District Judge Robert Clive Jones.

In a separate unpublished memorandum also filed Friday, the panel of the appeals court reversed a finding of contempt against BLM employee Thomas Seley and U.S. Forest Service employee Steven Williams, finding that Jones "grossly abused the power of contempt."

In the main opinion, the 9th Circuit, in a ruling written by Judge Susan Graber, granted the request by the U.S. government to reassign the case.

"Defendants openly trespassed on federal lands," she said. "Rather than simply resolving the fact-specific inquiries as to when and where the cattle grazed illegally, the district court applied an 'easement by necessity' theory that plainly contravenes the law."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you are wondering why the government is grabbing all the land it can, it is because they have nothing else to pledge as collateral on further government borrowing. One day you will wake up as tenants rather than citizens, the bankers will own the nation, and all it cost them was ink and paper!

Land Grab: BLM Is Considering Taking Half Of Texas Rancher's Land In Government Sanctioned Move

Texas rancher Ken Aderholt is fuming at the notion that the Bureau of Land Management could take the land he owns that has been in his family for generations, according to News Channel 6 Now. The red river land in Harrold Texas is where his family has run cattle since 1941, but now the BLM is claiming the land was never actually theirs, saying Texas should never have given his family a deed to the 1250 acres.

Texas Farmer Wins 30 Year Battle with BLM – Gets Land Back

A Texas farmer finally received land back that was taken from him by a court and given to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) more than thirty years ago. The victory puts land back into his undisputed possession and control that has been in his family since 1904. It also brings hope and a pathway to victory for other farmers who stand to lose up to 90,000 acres of land to the BLM.

GRAND JURY INDICTS PLANNED PARENTHOOD FILMMAKERS

A Texas grand jury has cleared a Planned Parenthood clinic of wrongdoing, and instead indicted two pro-life filmmakers who published videos alleging the abortion organization’s á la carte fetal organ harvesting.

On Monday, a Harris County Grand Jury charged Center for Medical Progress President David Daleiden and activist Sandra Merritt with “tampering with a governmental record,” a second degree felony. Daleiden was additionally charged with a misdemeanor count regarding human organ procurement.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said they were left with no choice but to charge the filmmakers after an investigation on the Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast clinic in Houston turned up clean.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The grand jury here was most likely either bribed, coerced, or intimidated, to come up with these indictments.

Attempting to punish the messengers here, to stifle any further investigations of Planned Parenthood's practices, reeks of corruption.

Hopefully, the truth will come out though the state investigation of these facilities.

NEW STUDY QUANTIFIES U.S. FASCISM — NEARLY HALF OF ALL RETIRED CONGRESS MEMBERS BECOME LOBBYISTS

As a member of the U.S. Congress, one can expect to earn a substantial income of $174,000 per year – a very comfortable sum to live on. But it doesn’t stop there, now legislators are frequently using their political careers as a stepping-stone to a much larger payday upon retirement, often quintupling their income as an industry lobbyist.

Three political scientists have tracked data all the way back to 1976 to analyze the lobbying activity of former members of Congress in an eye-opening new study.

The results of the study, “Who walks through the revolving door? Examining the lobbying activity of former members of Congress,” appearing in the journal Interest Groups & Advocacy, make clear that there has been a substantial increase in the number of members becoming lobbyists after retirement.

ISRAEL, SAUDI ARABIA, DEFENSE AND OIL SPENT NEARLY ONE TRILLION URGING DC FOR MORE WAR IN 2015

The defense industry spent millions lobbying the federal government last year, but they weren’t the only ones urging the country toward more war. Countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia, and even oil and computer industry representatives, also got in on the act.

According to OpenSecrets, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics, the defense and aerospace industries spent a combined total of $56,272,948 on D.C. lobbying efforts last year. That’s down from the all-time high in 2013, when the industry spent over $78 million on lobbying.

In all, the defense industry employed 376 lobbyists on behalf of 42 clients, with 249 of those lobbyists, or about 66 percent, considered “revolvers” by OpenSecrets.org — lobbyists that were formerly employed in the defense industry and able to potentially use their insider knowledge and connections for more influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Always comforting to know who is cheerleading for more wars.

Of course, it's never their kids who serve, die, and get maimed for life as a result of the US government's choosing war over good faith negotiations to resolve geopolitical differences.

AFTER NOT BEING CHARGED FOR STALKING ON DUTY – EX-COP MURDERS MULTIPLE WOMEN, KEPT BODIES IN FRIDGE

This week, former police officer Steven Zelich pleaded guilty to killing a woman, putting her body in a suitcase, and leaving it on the side of the highway. The victim, 19-year-old Jenny Gamez, was found stuffed in a suitcase along a highway in Wisconsin in August of 2012. Gamez was not the only woman that Zelich was accused of killing either. He has also been implicated in the murder of a 37-year-old woman from Minnesota named Laura Simonson. Simpson’s body was also found in a suitcase along the same highway where Gamez was found.

Rookie NYPD cop 'shot unarmed black man then did nothing as he lay dying - while victim's girlfriend frantically tried to revive him' manslaughter trial is told

A New York policeman shot an unarmed black man – then stood by while the dying man's girlfriend frantically tried to save him.

Akai Gurley, the father of a young daughter, died after being hit by a ricochet in the dimly lit stairwell Brooklyn housing project in November 2014.

Peter Liang, a 28-year-old rookie NYPD officer, faces up to 15 years if convicted of charges ranging from second degree manslaughter to official misconduct.

Gurley's death, in a Brooklyn project, was one of a number of killings that sparked anti-police protests around the country and a national round of soul searching about policing methods.

Ms. Clinton made $3 million for ‘speeches’ to 12 ‘bail-out’ banks while ALWAYS CRIMINALLY SILENT on reneged official promises to end poverty

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: The Intercept

The big deal about Ms. Clinton is the same for all “leaders” of both US political parties:

They are War Criminals for engaging US military into armed attacks that are the Orwellian opposite of what war law prevents in crystal-clear letter and intent.
They are guilty of Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
They are criminally complicit in the destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.

Ms. Clinton acted in Orwellian opposition to her Oath-sworn job as US Secretary of State with ongoing violations of the US Constitution through US Wars of Aggression, various US War Crimes, and support of other nations’ Wars of Aggression.

The State of Texas will continue to protect life, and I will continue to support legislation prohibiting the sale or transfer of fetal tissue."

The Texas attorney general echoed Abbott and said the state investigation will continue.

"The fact remains that the videos exposed the horrific nature of abortion and the shameful disregard for human life of the abortion industry," Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said.

The former First Lady and current presidential candidate has steadfastly denied that she ever "sent or received any e-mail that was deemed classified, that was marked classified" from the private, unsecured e-mail server she used as secretary of state. If only it were that simple. The problem is that Clinton — like her husband — prefers to define her own terms. By making the point that the information contained in her e-mails was not "marked classified" and implying that that means it was not "deemed classified," Clinton — and her campaign — have deliberately missed the point.

Parents, beware — Big Brother is coming for your kids. Buried deep inside the mammoth “bipartisan” so-called “education” legislation approved last month, dubbed the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA), is a radical expansion of what the statute refers to as “full-service community schools.” The controversial institutions, more accurately described as parental replacement centers, seek to oversee every aspect of your child's life, ranging from their “mental health” and “well being” to nutrition and even dentistry. You are in the crosshairs, too, as the Obama administration defines parents as “equal partners” in child rearing.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, as defined by Schwab, is “characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.”

Under the arrangement, the DEA designated the screener a “confidential source” and promised him a cut of any money he found while rummaging through people’s bags…

Davos Insider Vows Trump Defeat: “It Doesn’t Matter Who the GOP Puts Up, Hillary Will Win”

Voice of the people be damned.

With a week until the Iowa caucuses, it would appear that the fix is in – at least if you take the words of some of the world’s most elite to heart.

His name is Martin Sorrell, a British citizen and head of WPP, quite possibly the single most influential and prominent marketing firm in the world with decades-old ties to the most elite of the elite. Here is what Mr. Sorrell had to say regarding Donald Trump just days ago:

“It doesn’t matter who the Republicans put up…Hillary will win.”

China Warns "Social Stability Threatened" As 400,000 Steel Workers Are About To Lose Their Jobs

Fast forward to today when, if not a full million, Xinhua reports that as part of China's proposed excess capacity production curtailments the country's steel production slash will translate into the loss of jobs for up to 400,000 workers, estimated Li Xinchuang, head of China Metallurgical Industry Planning and Research Institute. Li said more people will be affected in the upstream and downstream industries. According to some estimates just like every banker job in New York "feeds" up to three downstream jobs, so in China every worker in the steel industry helps support between 2 to 3 additional job.s Which means, 400,000 primary layoffs would mean a total job loss number anywhere between 1.2 and 1.6 million jobs!

Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore

As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge–a whole lot more–and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

As you may or may not know, Intellihub reported on Jan. 4, that the Hammond’s ranch and other ranch-lands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government, but foreign entities as well.

However, at the time of the article’s publication the federal government’s full motive to seize the land was not yet known other than the fact that these elements do exist in the vicinity and are invaluable.

Now, after further investigation, more pieces of the puzzle have been put in place and you’re not going to believe what characters are involved.

Who Poisoned Flint, Michigan?

By the fall of 2015, news began coming out of Flint about undrinkable water, kids getting sick and a stonewalling state government. I headed back to Flint for a week. I saw orange water running from a hydrant. I read FOIA'd e-mails that prove the city and state decided not to chemically treat Flint's water, something required in every town, village and city in America. There was the woman whose water tested for lead at a toxic-waste level. This was after officials told her she was nuts, even though her daughter lost chunks of her hair in the shower, while her four-year-old son remained dangerously underweight and his skin became covered in red splotches any time it was exposed to the water. And I met a pediatrician who discovered that the lead levels of kids under five in Flint were dangerously elevated. She became physically ill when a state official called her deluded.

Judge Napolitano: Case Against Hillary 'Overwhelming, Damning and, from Her Perspective, Grave'

Reacting to the latest bombshell revelations about Hillary Clinton's email arrangement, Judge Andrew Napolitano said on The Kelly File Wednesday night that Clinton should be lawyering up, because "the case against her is overwhelming, damning and, from her perspective, grave."

Mrs. Clinton, on the other hand, continues to insist that the latest allegations about her emails while secretary of State change “nothing." During a Wednesday interview with NPR, she said, “I'm just going to leave it up to the professionals at the Justice Department, because nothing that this says changes the fact that I never sent or received material marked classified.”

Intelligence Official Says Some of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Were ‘More Than Top Secret’

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has dismissed a U.S. intelligence community inspector general’s finding that some of the classified emails found on a home Internet server she used while serving as secretary of state were more sensitive than “top secret.”

With a potential prosecution looming, liberal and Democratic voters inclined toward Clinton have to ask themselves whether they want to risk losing the 2016 presidential election because of a loss of public confidence that could come with the indictment of their candidate.

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WANTS TO HELP COPS SPY ON “LARGE-SCALE COMPUTER NETWORKS”

Police departments have long used devices called Cellebrites to extract the contents of smartphones, a once straightforward process made complicated by Apple’s decision in 2014 to encrypt by default all iPhones running iOS 8 or later. (Cellebrite’s website boasts that it can unlock many devices running iOS 8, but doesn’t say it can break into the latest hardware models of the iPhone.) As long as those devices are protected by a password, law enforcement cannot decrypt information on the phones unless they can brute force hack them open. The NIJ grant asking for “innovative means for collecting digital evidence from mobile devices” may be oriented toward making brute force solutions available to police departments that don’t have the code-cracking resources of say, the NSA.

AG creates 'conflict wall' between Flint water investigation, lawsuits

(CNN)Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Monday he is appointing an ex-prosecutor and Detroit's former FBI chief to join the investigation into Flint's water crisis, creating a "conflict wall" between the state's probe and the lawsuits targeting the state.

The previously announced investigation will determine "whether any Michigan laws were violated in the process that created a major public health crisis for Flint residents."

COPS LOCK MAN IN SCALDING SHOWER UNTIL HIS SKIN ‘SHRIVELED OFF’ & HE DIED – DEATH RULED ‘ACCIDENTAL’

In 2012, a 50-year-old mentally ill prison inmate named Darren Rainey died while locked in a scalding hot shower, rigged to inflict retribution on prisoners, by guards at Dade Correctional Institution. Guards put the schizophrenic man in the shower as punishment for defecating in his cell. Instead of getting Rainey the help that he obviously needed, guards took it upon themselves to inflict torturous punishment for hours. When guards finally checked on prisoner 060954, he was on his back and dead. According to the original documents involving his death, investigators noted that he’d been left in the hot steam for so long that his skin had shriveled from his body, a condition referred to as slippage.

“THE PENTAGON HAS NO CLUE HOW MANY WEAPONS IT HAS LOST TO ISIS”

For more than a decade, the United States has supplied huge quantities of weapons and military hardware to the Iraqi government—and a large chunk of that equipment has disappeared and landed in the hands of ISIS fighters and members of Iranian-backed Shiite militias responsible for massacring civilians. Everything from M-16s and bullets to Humvees and tanks have been lost. But neither the US nor Iraqi governments can say how much US-supplied materiel has been diverted to militant groups or how it’s ending up there.

Sheriff Glenn Palmer said in a statement to The Oregonian/OregonLive that "the government is going to have to concede something" to end the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

He said freeing a father-son ranching team from prison "would be a start. Sending the FBI home would be a start." He referred to the FBI's lead role in ending the refuge occupation.

"I just pray to God that cooler heads prevail and that no one gets killed," Palmer said.

The End of Tax Havens?

Most people will abide low to moderate taxation but, whenever governments have become truly rapacious in taxing their people, those people have sought to escape enslavement from their own governments. Sometimes, this has meant physically leaving the country (as so many Britons did in the 70’s) and, sometimes, this has meant moving one’s money to a jurisdiction that has either low, or no, direct taxation.

Tax havens have a long history and, since the 70’s, as taxation in much of the world has been on the rise, havens have unsurprisingly flourished.

Mainstream Media Hides Gun Owners

Gun owners are portrayed as angry white men. Gun owners are portrayed as elitists rather than as populists. The mainstream news deliberately ignores young women who have chosen to own and carry guns for self-defense. The media ignores minorities and the poor who choose to own a gun to protect their family. The media sells us the violence committed with a gun rather than reporting on the lives saved with a firearm. You’re left with a distorted view of the world if you only get your news glancing at the mainstream news.

Detroit collapsing into third world status as water supply becomes too toxic to drink… America’s infrastructure imploding

Already pressured by a collapsing economy and a financial state of emergency, the people of Flint, Michigan, were also deprived of clean water in 2014, when the state decided to switch the city’s water source to the notoriously mucky Flint River in a bid to save money. In the absence of proper treatment, the water eroded the lead service lines and put all residents in danger. Although the lead-poisoned locals and children are now forced to deal with the consequences of this reckless act for the rest of their lives, the city and state officials responsible have yet to pay any noteworthy price.

Freemason 'Judge' Steve Grasty Changes All Public Town Hall Meetings In Oregon Standoff To 'Invitation Only,' Bans Guns

As JFK so wisely said, "The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings." LibertyFight.com broke the story last week that Harney County, Oregon Commissioner Steve Grasty, who claims he is charging the militia $75,000 per day while they occupy the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, is an admitted Freemason. Local TV news pointed out the fact that Grasty is not even a real 'judge,'; the title of 'judge' is merely the term that some rural counties use for commissioner. Grasty made an absurd and desperate proclamation on Jan. 22nd declaring that only those he approves of will be allowed at public town hall meetings. Ironically, he added that he "respects the rule of law." He also gave a second emotional rant, pleading "those of us who live and work here, are not the unsophisticated rubes that are being portrayed in national media reports."

Flint Residents Told That Their Children Could Be Taken Away If They Don’t Pay For City’s Poison Water

By John Vibes

As the water crisis in Flint deepens, it is becoming apparent that the effects of the lead-infested water are not just a health hazard, but the situation has the potential of ruining many more lives outside of the poison issue. There is no denying that the water in Flint is undrinkable and that it is contaminated with lead and other substances, and it is clear that the government of Flint is responsible for the problem.

However, the city’s government continues to charge people for the poison water and then threatening to foreclose their home or take their children if they refuse to pay...

Detroit collapsing into third world status as water supply becomes too toxic to drink... America's infrastructure imploding

After almost two years of drinking toxic water, the people of Flint were finally acknowledged in October 2015. In the meantime, the high levels of lead found in drinking water translated into brain damage, learning disabilities and pregnancy issues for the residents. Children have been permanently hindered in their natural development. But it took until January 2016 for the government to mobilize the National Guard and begin distributing bottled water and filters in Flint.

What lesson do we have to learn from this? Wouldn't the residents of Flint be much healthier today had they listened to their own instincts and stopped drinking tap water when it started smelling funny? Most importantly, has the government done anything to help prevent this from happening elsewhere in America?

Let me put it this way. Forget the name is Trump. If a candidate could guaranteed fix everything that's wrong in this country the way the Republican Party thinks it's wrong, if it were a slam dunk, if it were guaranteed, that candidate will still be opposed by the Republican Party establishment. If they've never heard of him before or if he's never been in politics before, if he's not part of the structure, the infrastructure, if he hasn't paid his dues, if he's not part of the clique, they don't want him in there. It's exclusionary and it's got all kinds of people who want to get into it, who want to climb that ladder, who want to be at the top, and you just don't get there.

In many ways it's not merit based like so many other things in life are. So there is a natural enmity to outsiders, to intruders. And when an outsider or intruder gets in, gets a nose under the tent and starts making noise, then the establishment lifelong members start caucusing together to figure out how they can get rid of this intruder who might just shake everything up. When it comes time to get rid of the intruder all they know to do is what they've always done. They go to their playbook. Whatever party politics playbooks there are, they go to them.

Not-guilty ruling sets up framework for Twitter cases

Friday’s verdict in the trial of Gregory Alan Elliott — not guilty on all counts — was widely discussed by legal experts and the divided supporters of the accused and the complainants in the case.

Freedom of speech means everyone gets to say what is on their mind. Freedom of speech means that some of what you hear you may not like, but the appropriate response is to offer a counter argument in open debate.

If this isn’t the start of the crisis, just imagine how bad the real crisis is going to be.

William White is a central banker who used to be on the BIS management committee. And this makes him a key member of the global financial establishment.

It’s not too often that central bankers are particularly transparent with the public.

Ben Bernanke famously told the world in July 2005 that there wouldn’t be a nationwide decline in home prices in the United States.

Then just a few months later when home prices did fall, he told Congress that the adverse effects of the housing market were ‘contained’ and wouldn’t affect the broader economy.

He was dead wrong on both accounts. And one of the biggest financial crises in history broke out shortly thereafter.

Central bankers seem to always miss the crisis just around the corner.

Why do JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs want desperately to keep the UK in the European Union?

JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs want Britain to stay within the European Union and they are spending money to make sure the UK stays. Surprise. It is odd (perhaps not so odd) that so much of the banking and political establishment in British Europe (forgive me Britons, I was taught that one should never call a Brit a “European” but I’m making a point) is so vehemently pro-European Union. The lockstep (goosestep?) push by some to further integrate with Brussels, to give up even more sovereignty, to further reduce Britain’s stature in the world is striking.

Bill To Allow AZ College Students To Carry On Campus In The Works

Right now, the reagent directors get to decide the firearms policy for Arizona institutions of higher learning. House Bill 2072, would theoretically authorize carriage of said firearms provided the student or faculty member applied and received his or her permit from the Department of Public Safety.

While less than 20,000 illegal immigrants would be considered targets for deportation, since fiscal year 2013, more than 300,000 unaccompanied minors and “family units” have been apprehended illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Recent data hint that future influx will be even higher.

Goldman Sachs sends US into recession, promptly retracts report’s slide

Goldman Sachs has long been criticized, but rarely punished, for its role in the global financial crash. Despite being “too big to fail”, America’s “most important bank” Goldman Sachs may have done so this week, at least for a few minutes, when it possibly tipped off a new economic recession.

Arkansas teen says he was turned away from Marines because of his Confederate flag tattoo

Anthony Bauswell, 18, has the rebel flag inked on his rib. He said he got 'Southern Pride' added so it wouldn't be seen as racist, but the recruiter told him it was an 'automatic DQ'. The military prohibits all racist, extremist or gang-related tattoos. I guess the confederate flag SOMEHOW qualifies now. At least now the kid won't have to go die for politicians and bankers in some war we were lied into!

Comcast Demands NRA Remove Gun Images From Great American Outdoor Show Ads

The ads–one titled “Family” and the other “Exhibitors”–include images of firearms that are on the screen for a split-second. After all, GAOS is a show for fans of “shooting, fishing, and camping.” For this reason, images of tents, large game, fish, and rods and reels are interspersed with the firearm images.

DEA Hired A TSA Informant To Help Take Cash From People’s Luggage

A Department of Justice watchdog officially condemned the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration this month, following a report that the agency had recruited a Transportation Security Administration security screener to search bags for cash that the DEA could confiscate. The very existence of such a partnership highlights much broader concerns about the controversial legal practice known as civil asset forfeiture, which critics say contorts law enforcement priorities and props up a system of policing for profit.

The Bernie factor

Sen. Bernie Sanders has Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton by the throat. At least, that’s what the media and Bernie’s noisy supporters would like you to think. They cite polls showing Sanders throttling Clinton by up to double-digit margins in primary-gateway-state New Hampshire as proof that the doddering communist is putting the old mare in the rearview mirror. To be fair, some polls from those two states do suggest that — from a political perspective — Bernie is doing to Hillary what former President Bill Clinton did to any woman who strayed too close to his motorcade.

Michigan residents sue Governor Snyder after being lied to about toxic lead in their drinking water

In breaking news, the people of Flint, Michigan, are suing Governor Snyder, the city of Flint, and the state for injuries obtained from drinking lead-contaminated water – water which was been known to be harmful, yet which went ignored. As a result of this blatant shunning of public health, there have been legionnaires’ disease outbreaks (87 since June 2014 to be exact, 10 of which have led to death)

Getting the Idea of Government and Political Authority Out of Your Mind

Political authority, or the authority of State, or the authority of Government, is something the average person virtually never questions. Almost everyone goes through their entire life believing that the Government – although it’s almost always composed of provable criminals, cheats and liars – still has a solid basis for its political authority. Many people, whether left, right or anywhere in between on the political spectrum, are Statists: they think that Government has an inherent right to rule, using coercion if necessary. Yet, even a cursory examination shows that if a normal person acted like Government, they would characterized as cunning, secretive and manipulative, and either be diagnosed as insane, or locked up as a danger to society, or both. So why do people allow and consent to such a situation?

When will Hillary Clinton be indicted

A Clinton indictment could lead to a brokered Democratic national convention

With the revelation that Hillary Clinton stored above top secret documents on her unsecured email server, the question being discussed on the news talk shows is not whether she will be indicted but when. Two scenarios have arisen concerning a possible Clinton indictment under the Espionage Act and perhaps other, related charges.

The first scenario has Clinton being indicted before she locks up the nomination.
***
The second scenario has the indictments being handed down after Hillary Clinton locks down the nomination, presuming that she can fend off the stiff challenge from Sanders. Then, the theory goes, she is forced to withdraw from the race and release her delegates to vote for whom they wish. That hypothetical development means that the Democratic National Convention will be brokered.

Jews Criminalize Un-Kosher Laughter

In the past, Mr. M’Bala M’Bala has raised his voice either in support of Holocaust Revisionism or in protest against the oppression of Palestinians. The verdict was gleefully cheered by Eric Lemmens, a lawyer for Belgium’s Jewish organizations,” For me this is more than satisfying, this is a major victory,” Ibid. A major victory for Censorship. A Major Defeat for Free Speech... Western governments have piously lectured the rest of the World on how the West protects Free Speech (as in the Perinçek case.) The continued persecution of Dieudonne is an example of the hypocrisy and dishonesty of Western governments. Maybe they think the rest of the World won’t notice?

Davos elite alarmed at the prospect of 'embarrassing' Trump being the GOP presidential nominee

The coverage by the Oregonian IMHO is inflammatory and incendiary. They and the governor would appear to be trying to motivate the feds to go in and massacre these people.

Ted Cruz has a very real birther problem: The law is not settled — but the history is

Webmaster addition: Actually, "Natural Born" was clearly defined in "The Law of Nations" by Emerich de Vattel, published in 1758 and relied on heavily by the framers of the Constitution. "Natural Born" was already legally defined when the Constitution was written as "born inside the nation."

The inclusion of the "Natural Born" requirement for the Presidency was proposed at the Constitutional Convention by Chief Justice John Jay, who wrote, "Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen..."

Dimon's Pay Jumps 35% to $27 Million

>Package includes $20.5 million linked to bank's future returns
>New performance units come after shareholders rejected pay

(*>Package includes $20.5 million linked to bank's future returns
Translation, the money the bank will be making in the future from penalties , fees , loan interest , and 'dip ins' that we'll be paying , for the next bout of 'quantitative easing' .

Could the DC, Baltimore blizzard eclipse historic snowstorm totals?

***
If 18 inches of snow falls in Washington, D.C., then it would eclipse the "Blizzard of 1996" and the "Snowmageddon Storm" of Feb. 5-6, 2010.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Washington, D.C., was 21.0 inches on Jan. 28, 1922, during the "Knickerbocker Storm."
***
If 18 inches of snow falls on Baltimore, then it would tie the top 10 storm from Dec. 18-19, 2009.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Baltimore was 23.3 inches on Jan. 28, 1922.

Snowfall records date back to 1884 at Washington, D.C., and 1892 at Baltimore.

Record-breaking or not, the weekend blizzard will prove to be very disruptive over a broad area of the mid-Atlantic and perhaps part of southern New England as well.
