Want Endless War? Love the U.S. Empire? Well, Hillary Clinton’s Your Choice

Hillary Clinton likes to extol her foreign policy credentials, particularly her experience as secretary of state. She attaches herself to Barack Obama’s coattails, pledging to continue his policies. But she is even more hawkish than the president.

Like Obama, Clinton touts American exceptionalism, the notion that the United States is better than any other country. In his State of the Union addresses, Obama has proclaimed America “exceptional” and said the U.S. must “lead the world.” Clinton wrote in her book “Hard Choices” that “America remains the ‘indispensable nation.’ ”

6,500 Coalition Troops in Iraq, Pentagon Pushing for More

While Pentagon and Obama Administration officials continue to insist that their goal is to take over materially all of ISIS’ territory, and to do so within the next year, behind the scenes the push is to add ever more ground troops to Iraq.

House Again Votes to Try to Derail Iran Nuclear Deal

Groundhog Day saw Congressional leaders push a flurry of bills aiming to override presidential vetoes on various issues, and among them was another vote aimed at derailing the international nuclear deal with Iran, trying to forbid the Obama Administration from lifting sanctions on Iran unless the nation is certified as unaffiliated with any terror group, and abandons its conventional ballistic missile program.

FEDS HELPED HIDE INVESTIGATION INTO BIG BANK’S MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG CARTELS

A federal judge ruled last week that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will be forced to share a report on its business practices with the public — a decision both the bank and the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought in court to prevent. The report is based on the findings of an ongoing government audit of the bank initiated amid revelations in 2012, that it laundered money for drug cartels and terrorist organizations.

Iowa's nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called?

It's Iowa's nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.

This time it's the Democrats, not the Republicans.

Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

5% of the vote missing, and the chairwoman of the Iowa Democrats declares Hillary's .2% victory final?

We all know Hillary is a totally ruthless human being who cares not for the law, the Constitution, or the people, but it says something about the American charcter that she has attracted so many supporters who know exactly what Hillary is and has done, but don't care, so long as they get a "Woman in the White House!"

JUDGE CONVICTED AFTER HE ADMITTED TO TORTURING MAN IN COURT WITH 50,000 VOLTS TO SHUT HIM UP

A man representing himself in a Maryland court was shocked with 50,000 volts of electricity by the judge because he continued to speak when the judge ordered him to stop. Judge Robert Nalley pleaded guilty on Monday to depriving the defendant of his civil rights. The charge stems from an encounter between the judge and victim Delvon King in July of 2014, when King was appearing before Judge Nalley to face gun charges. King had a shocker anklet attached to him, which was supposed to be used in case of an emergency situation, or if King were to attempt to escape or hurt anyone.

At least 1.1million immigrants made their way to Germany last year. More than 300,000 of them have since been granted asylum.

RUSSIAN GEOPOLITICIAN: TRUMP IS REAL AMERICA

This week, America starts primaries season.

If it wasn’t for Donald Trump, it would be quite ordinary and without any surprises, even dull. He is, no doubt, the sensation of the elections. Donald Trump, of course, is more interesting then Obama. To choose a black Muslim democrat to conduct policies, who is not a whit different from the white protestant fundamentalist-republican candidate, is a real PR success. But it is impossible to repeat such steps again; the democrats have presented the quite annoying Hilary. In fact, she would be first woman-president, since gender is a trend, but, anyway, it not that impressive.

John Kerry Hopes to Become US President if Hillary Clinton Arrested - Trump

US Secretary of State John Kerry believes he can run for US president if Hillary Clinton is forced to withdraw from the race or is jailed for breaking security procedures, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a rally in Milford, New Hampshire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary should have been arrested already for her June 17, 2011 email instructing Jacob Sullivan to strip the classification markings from a document and send it non-secure. It doesn't matter by how much the document was classified or whether Sullivan actually did it or not; the issuing of the order itself by Hillary is a violation of Title 18, Section 793, and is a FELONY!

Why hasn't Hillary been arrested and charged for this crime?

Rubio’s coke house, gayish dance troupe, and foam parties

It is also significant that Rubio did not have the best parent models in growing up in Florida and Las Vegas. His Cuban parents, according to GOP insiders, did not emigrate from Cuba to escape Fidel Castro and Communism — they left Cuba for America in 1956 — but were Havana casino workers employed by Jewish mob boss Meyer Lansky and brought to Florida. From Miami, they eventually left for Las Vegas to work in mob-owned casino hotels. Rubio’s father, Mario Rubio Reina, worked as a bartender in Las Vegas casinos while his mother, Oriales Rubio, was a hotel maid. Rubio has falsely claimed that his parents fled Castro and Communism. In 1956, the U.S.-supported fascist dictator, Fulgencio Batista, was fully in control of Cuba.

Everyone Lied About Flint's Water: An Insider's Story

How the hell can something like this happen in America? Well, last year the city of Flint switched their water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River in a bid to save money. After the switch, they stopped adding orthophosphate -- a chemical that stops lead and iron pipes from rotting away into the water supply. It made a difference: Six months after the water source switch, the local GM plant stopped using Flint water because it was so corrosive, it was harmful to their engine parts.

Donald Trump accuses Ted Cruz of 'illegally stealing' Iowa caucus

Donald Trump has accused Ted Cruz, his main rival in the Republican nomination contest, of “illegally” stealing the Iowa caucus.

The tweet, which appeared on the tycoon’s official Twitter page, said: “Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he illegally stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong any why he got more votes than anticipated. Bad!”

The Texas maverick Ted Cruz dealt Mr Trump’s campaign a blow on Monday in a surprise victory over his Republican rival – many had expected the billionaire former Apprentice star to come out on top.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The disparity between the polls and the results tells us rigging was going on (and other instances of fraud were found in Iowa, including one caught on C-SPAN's cameras). This election is already so crooked they have to screw those ballots into the ballot boxes!

Ted Cruz's campaign did start a hoax rumor that Ben Carson was dropping out of the race, but the lower-than-expected numbers for Trump with the higher-than-expected results for both Cruz and Rubio may not be the work of Cruz or Rubio.

Recall the Watergate scandal from 1972-74? It was eventually revealed that Richard Nixon's CREEP (Committee to RE Elect the President) sabotaged the campaigns of Democrats who might be able to beat Nixon, leaving Nixon to run against George McGovern, whom Nixon trounced in a record landslide vote.

The young Hillary Rodham was on the Watergate investigation committee (later dismissed without a good recommendation for lying and dishonesty) where she no doubt received a thorough education in just how Nixon operated!

So, today, 2016... Hillary does not want to run against Trump. Trump will win. Hillary WANTS to run against Ted Cruz because she knows she can steamroller all over him, if for no other reason than reminding everyone that Cruz was born in Canada and therefor is ineligible to serve as President under the Constitution.

I would not rule Hillary and her friends at Microsoft as suspects just yet!

“How was your water? Was it clean?” Gov Snyder Chased Out Of Restaurant By Angry Residents

By John Vibes

Governor Rick Snyder is surely one of the most hated people in Flint, if not the entire state of Michigan, and it is a surprise that he can actually go out anywhere in public without being heckled. In fact, there was just an incident reported last week where he was chased out of a restaurant with residents who were angry about the part he played in the city’s current water crisis.

At the Old Town Tavern on Liberty Street, which is just down the street from the governor’s new condo, Snyder was unable to finish his meal because of his public infamy.

According to Ann Arbor resident, Laura Tanner, someone in the restaurant yelled “Snyder, you f*** up!” which alerted everyone else in the bar that the governor was there...

Europe in difficult position due to poor protection of outer boundaries — German official

According to the official, the German government is obliged to cut refugee flows under the German constitution. If it fails, the authorities will face a lawsuit at the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany. About 1.1 million asylum seekers arrived in Germany in 2015... Earlier, Udo Di Fabio, a former judge of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, concluded that Berlin was violating constitutional norms by allowing unlimited numbers of refugees to enter the country. According to him, the best thing under the current circumstances would be to shut the borders legally and restrict the number of migrants. Seehofer said the global community currently has to address such tasks as the migration crisis and counteraction to terrorism. "I am convinced that these challenges require joint action. And without Russia this is impossible.

Washington has ‘no comment’ on Russia’s decision to blacklist five Americans

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday five Americans linked to the US law enforcement system have been barred from entry. The move comes in retaliation for the recent US expansion of the so-called Magnitsky list of sanctions against Russian officials. The Russian blacklist includes former US attorney general Alberto Gonzales, former US undersecretary of defense Douglas Feith, former senior counsel at the CIA John Rizzo, former assistant attorney general Jay Scott Bybee and former general counsel of the department of defense William James Haynes II. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said the expansion of the Magnitsky list that has been used for "groundless accusations against Russian officials" is dealing another blow to bilateral ties.

Senior Russian legislator: US uses UN, Security Council for propaganda

"The United Nations and the UN Security Council still remain optional agencies in the US scheme of things. The US turns to them exclusively in cases when they can be used for propaganda purposes," Klishas wrote in his blog on the official website of the upper house of parliament. "Possibly, the United States may soon start bombing other counties and will not even bother to explain the reasons behind its actions or provide some grounds for its own policies," Klishas said. He also pointed to the Western countries’ refusal to provide any proof of their speculations as a new trend in public behavior. "Denying for no apparent reason the hard facts, such as oil caravans towards Turkey from Syria or refusing to provide any proof to back up their speculations is a new style of civilized Western countries’ policies in communicating with the mass media, the public in their countries and the whole world," he said.

The film the Diebold corporation doesn't want you to see, this revelatory journey follows tenacious Seattle grandmother Bev Harris and her band of extraordinary citizen-activists as they set out to ask one simple question: How does America count its votes? From Florida and California to Ohio and Washington State, filmmakers Simon Ardizzone, Robert Cohen, and Russell Michaels starkly reveal a broken system riddled with secrecy, incompetent election officials, and electronic voting machines that can be programmed to steal elections. Equipped only with a powerful sense of righteous outrage, the activists take on voting machine industry, exposing alarming security holes in America's trusted voting machines. They even go dumpster diving at a county election official's office in Florida, uncovering incendiary evidence of miscounted votes.

Foreigners leaving government is a negative signal for Poroshenko from West — expert

The decision of Ukraine’s Minister of Economy and Trade Aivaras Abromavicius to leave his post is a sign of a conflict with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, and a signal from the West about the deterioration of relations, Andrei Zolotarev head of the Kiev-based analytical Third Sector Centre, said Wednesday... The Ukrainian government has several foreign nationals holding the posts of ministers. Before his appointment, Abromavicius was a Lithuanian businessman. Ukraine’s Minister of Healthcare Alexander Kvitashvili is from Georgia, who had also tried to resign earlier, but the Verkhovna Rada did not support his decision. American-born Natalie Jaresko holds the post of Ukraine's Minister of Finance.
"Today I have decided to resign from the post due to a sharp activation of blocking important systemic reforms in the country," Abromavicius said at a press conference in Kiev. http://tass.ru/en/world/854174

Moscow believes statements made by British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond on Russia and Iran’s alleged interference in settling the Syrian crisis to be “a dangerous gambit,” Russia’s Govorit Moskva radio station quoted Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying Tuesday, Sputnik reported. Hammond earlier said that Russia’s actions in Syria were strengthening the positions of the ISIL, which is prohibited in numerous countries including Russia and the United States, because Russia says it wants to destroy the ISIL, but is not bombing the terrorist group and bombing the moderate opposition. Zakharova said this was “a dangerous gambit of misinformation.”

Shock video sparks police hunt in Munich for migrant men who 'beat up two pensioners who tried to stop them from groping a woman on the subway'

A shocking video of a group of migrant men attacking two pensioners who allegedly stopped them from groping a young woman on the subway in Munich has sparked a police hunt.

The footage shows the gang of around five men - who appear to be of 'Arab' origin - roughly seizing one elderly man by the arms as they shout abuse at him.

The second elderly victim can be seen grappling with one of the gang, before he is held up by the neck and threatened.

Why civil liberties are no longer defended

When looking back from the perspective of the 1800’s America, the experience in the 20th and certainly the 21th centuries, has been a consistent and total repudiation of the underpinnings of civil liberties. With the widespread rejection of natural law, the secular humanism of the worldly culture has replaced the time tested and well-grounded principles that are the basis of Western Civilization.

For Once, Low Oil Prices May Be a Problem for World's Economy

“I never thought I would wish, let alone pray, for higher oil prices, but I am,” said Han de Jong, chief economist at ABN Amro Bank NV in Amsterdam. “The world badly needs higher oil prices.” The problem is that the world’s economy relies far more today on emerging countries than 15 or 25 years ago - the last periods of ultra-low oil prices. In another twist, the U.S. has emerged to vie with Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s biggest oil producer. In the past, the harm done to exporters was more than offset by importers’ gains. And with the exception of China and India, most big emerging countries are oil and commodities rich. Such economies now account for about 40 percent of global gross domestic product, about double their share in 1990, according to the International Monetary Fund...

More than 68 % of the respondents voted that the Cabinet has resigned in full. About 21 % made that his post should leave only the country's Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. To give another chance to the government, gave their votes only about 5 % of voters. After that, the channel's website for some time was not available. At the moment, the Internet page is restored.

Hillary Clinton is using CNN and DNC to manipulate future votes

It’s 11:46 PM PST and watching CNN when it hits me that CNN is straight propaganda for HRC and is pulling the wool over our eyes. Check out this tweet from CNN Politics where it has just a gif of Bernie but the link takes you to an article where the FIRST thing you see is a video of Ted Cruz with his 1st place speech. This is to plant the image of seeing a male winning the Iowa Caucus in everyone’s mind so it doesn’t cause as much of a stir when they “report” the Breaking News that Bernie actually won Iowa.

How Decades of Conservatives Against Peace Helped Create the Trump Phenomenon

There is much to praise and agree with in National Review’s cover editorial, “Against Trump.” Donald Trump is no friend to limited government proponents. Indeed, his flip-flopping on key issues of concern to libertarians and conservatives make it unclear whether a President Trump would govern from his current perspectives or be the Trump who is a dear friend of the Clintons. But National Review misses a key part of the Trump phenomenon. It isn’t an aberration, but is a natural outgrowth of conservatism abandoning its core values of limited government and a strict national interest foreign policy during the Bush years. It may even be an expression of an underlying worldview of fear and defeatism present in conservatism ever since National Review led the Cold War break with the antiwar, anti-New Deal Old Right.

Jewish West Bank settlers are as smug as white South Africans in 1980

The great South African black poet Dennis Brutus once told me an anecdote that summed up this smug view. Brutus, who passed on in 2009, was the man who encouraged me to go to southern Africa and see for myself. He had been imprisoned on Robben Island in the 1960s, alongside Nelson Mandela and other national leaders. “One day one of the white warders approached,” Brutus said in his mellifluous voice. “He said, ‘Brutus, you seem like an intelligent man — why do you fight against a system that you will never be able to change?’ He was a decent sort, so I answered, ‘And why do you think you will keep dominating us forever?’ He answered simply, ‘Because America will never stop supporting us.'”

The same self-confident attitude shines through in Weiss’s reports. The settlers are absolutely certain the Israeli government will never uproot them, and behind that is the unspoken conviction that the United States will never put significant pressure on Israel.

Cops Use Taser on Cleaning Woman After Mistaking Her for Burglar, Then Charge Her with Evading Arrest

Two Tennessee cops are being criticized for excessive force for tasering a 36-year-old middle-school cleaning woman after they confronted her at night in the otherwise empty school.

Juana Raymundo, originally from Guatemala, has been charged with evading arrest after she ran from the police who thought she was a burglar — despite seeing her cleaning supplies in the hallway — reports the Times Free Press.

According to the police report, Sgt. Jamie Heath and Officer Brian Desmond entered Ooltewah Middle School at 8:30pm earlier this month after noticing a door to the school was left open. Inspecting the school with their guns drawn, they spotted the cleaning supplies in the hallway before encountering an empty-handed Raymundo who appeared, “nervous and somewhat reserved.”

But it begs the question of why the Post limited their article to the CIA and did not mention the many other so-called "national security" agencies who routinely engage in "eyewashing" with their every pronouncement? "Common sense" should tell us that the CIA isn’t the only national security agency which engages in deception, either of their own workforce, their Congressional "watchdogs," or of the public.

Unfortunately for Microsoft, as could be expected, it is now being accused of voter fraud by apparent Donald Trump supporters. Since Ted Cruz won last night, you would think the claim is that the Windows-maker fraudulently boosted him. Nope. Actually, conspiracy theorists are claiming Microsoft increased the number of votes cast for Marco Rubio, who placed third. This movement is using the hashtag #MicrosoftRubioFraud.
