Hillary’s Official Internet Troll Team Has Spent Millions to “Correct” People Who “Attack” Her Online

So, just be warned. If you were to, say, write something like, “I think Hillary Clinton is a spawn of Satan dragon woman from the 8th circle of Dante’s Inferno and I am surprised Chelsea survived being born because don’t dragon creatures tend to sometimes eat their young?” on your Facebook wall, well, I imagine you too might get a stern online talking to from Hillary’s army of paid Internet trolls “record correctors”.

Everything seems unsettled…

Now an earthquake swarm is hitting, of all places, Arizona.

WORSE THAN CRIMINALS — COPS USE ASSET FORFEITURE TO STEAL $53K FROM AN ORPHANAGE AND A CHURCH

The criminal depths to which police will sink to bolster their budgets, apparently have no limit, as a recent case of police theft in Oklahoma illustrates. To keep society safe, sheriff’s deputies in Muskogee County, Oklahoma robbed a church and an orphanage of $53,000. Real American heroes. Eh Wah, 40, a refugee from Burma, who became a US citizen more than a decade ago, was traveling with the cash to deliver it to the intended recipients when he was targetted by modern day, state-sanctioned pirates — for a broken tail light. Eh Wah had been entrusted with the money by the members of his Christian band who had been on a 19-city tour raising funds for the Dr. T. Thanbyah Christian Institute, a religious liberal arts college in Burma serving the Karen community there. And, they had also collected funds for the Hsa Thoo Lei orphanage in Thailand, which serves internally displaced Karen people.

Do Hillary Clinton’s Emails Expose A Scheme To Trade US Secrets For Political Influence?

Back in August, I wrote a post titled The real email question: Did Hillary Clinton sell US secrets? As much as I loathe Hillary, this was a very serious question based on the facts that we know. The IG representing the 17 US intelligence agencies identified two emails residing on Hillary Clinton’s private, unsecure email server as being properly classified as TS\TK, that is, the were classified Top Secret and compartmentalized under the code words Talent Keyhole which indicates that it is imagery deriving from a KH-11 reconnaissance satellite. If the emails had merely contained a description of the satellite imagery, even if the subject were classified, there is no way a reader could ascertain if the imagery came from a KH-11 or a drone or a manned flight or an on the ground agent. This implies that the emails contained the actual imagery (with no security markings, we’ve heard of that before).

National Security Letters are now constitutional, judge rules

A judge who in 2013 declared that National Security Letters (NSLs) were unconstitutional has now changed her mind in an unsealed ruling made public Thursday.

Federal investigators issue tens of thousands of NSLs each year to banks, ISPs, car dealers, insurance companies, doctors, and others. The letters, which demand personal information, don't need a judge's signature and come with a gag to the recipient that forbids the disclosure of the NSL to the public or the target.

The NSL brouhaha strangely isn't even about the Fourth Amendment right to privacy, as the courts have generally stated that the information sought in the letters is a business record not protected by the Constitution. Instead, the legal fight is about the First Amendment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just what the Federal government had on US District Judge Susan Illston, to compel her to turn her opinion around so absolutely completely on this issue.

David Swanson: US Wars Are Not Waged Out of Generosity or for Democracy

Why do we seem to be trapped in an endless cycle of war, with each new military adventure promised to be different than the last? David Swanson's War Is a Lie takes apart and thoroughly refutes every major argument that has been used to justify wars, especially those wars most widely trumpeted as just and good.

In this interview, David Swanson, author of War Is a Lie, counters the theory that war is an inevitable part of human nature, says the antiwar movement is larger than the dominant media suggest and shares the view that wars are fought primarily for money and markets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress - and the White House - are all purchased commodities in the struggle for market domination by corporations.

And those naive enough to believe that the American election process gives us the candidates - and ultimately - the right people for the jobs of Congressional representatives and president, are fooling themselves.

By the times candidates are vetted, and chosen (and financially supported) by the corporations which own them, it matters not what the voters think at all; voting in this country has devolved to a Kabuki-like exercise in which people have the illusion that they have had some say in the matter of American leadership, when they have none whatsoever.

And the degree of vote-rigging in this country?!? Absolutely amazing. If you have not seen it, please see Bev Harris' video, "Hacking democracy", which demonstrates, painfully clearly, how voting machines can be rigged in favor of a particular candidate.

Obama Dismisses NKorea Proposal on Halting Nuke Tests

A day after North Korea's foreign minister told The Associated Press that his country is ready to halt its nuclear tests if the United States suspends its annual military exercises with South Korea, President Barack Obama said Sunday that Washington isn't taking the proposal seriously and Pyongyang would "have to do better than that."

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong, interviewed Saturday by the AP, also defended his country's right to maintain a nuclear deterrent and warned that Pyongyang won't be cowed by international sanctions. And for those waiting for the North's regime to collapse, he had this to say: Don't hold your breath.

"Stop the nuclear war exercises in the Korean Peninsula, then we should also cease our nuclear tests," he said in his first interview Saturday with a Western news organization.

Obama dismissed North Korea's latest overture at a news conference Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Hannover, Germany.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Obama: the longer you wait to engage with China in serious negotiations to replace the Armistice (which is simply a cessation of military activities)with a real peace treaty, the sooner Kim Jung Un, or his successor will possess - and be able to successfully aim - a nuclear weapon.

This should have been on your "to do" list from the very moment you took the oath of office; but obviously, you have chosen to just let the situation fester here, because you have been hoping for a potential war with China, in order to defeat the rise of the yuan.

But sir, I need to ask you: did you happen to get the memo that last week that China is issuing a gold-backed yuan, which is not convertible at all into US dollars?!?

Apparently, Mr. President, the Chinese government was way ahead of you on this.

TPP Consultation Turns Away Scores of Lower Mainlanders (BC Canada)

Scores of Lower Mainland residents who wanted to tell the House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade what they think of the 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership trade and investment deal negotiated by the Harper Conservatives were denied that chance Monday.

More than 50 people rallied outside the Richmond Radisson Hotel where the hearings were scheduled to be held, eventually being frisked before entering the hearing hall on a red carpet laid by protesters that read "170,000 Say No to TPP" -- referring to the number of signatures on an anti-TPP petition.

Although the committee did choose to hear from some applicants Monday, as for 170 other members of the activist group Leadnow who had applied to address the committee, they learned last week, without explanation, that they would not be heard.

"They were all rejected," said the group's Vancouver organizer, Jolan Bailey. "They didn't even tell us when they did. We only found out when they published the list of who was speaking -- we noticed that none of our people were on there."

IN 1 OUT OF EVERY 5 AMERICAN FAMILIES, NOBODY HAS A JOB

If nobody is working in one out of every five U.S. families, then how in the world can the unemployment rate be close to 5 percent as the Obama administration keeps insisting? The truth, of course, is that the U.S. economy is in far worse condition than we are being told. Last week, I discussed the fact that the Federal Reserve has found that 47 percent of all Americans would not be able to come up with $400 for an unexpected visit to the emergency room without borrowing it or selling something. But Barack Obama and his minions never bring up that number. Nor do they ever bring up the fact that 20 percent of all families in America are completely unemployed. The following comes directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the real unemployment numbers, which are just going to get worse with time.

This is why the US government is in such a hot hurry to get a major war going, so as to attempt to distract Americans from the real culprits in their economic misery.

MALAYSIA WILL LIKELY FORCE ‘POLITICAL BLOGS’ AND NEWS WEBSITES TO REGISTER WITH THE GOVERNMENT

Malaysia’s Communications and Multimedia Ministry has formally proposed legal amendments to the Attorney General that would require the country’s political blogs and online news portals to register with the government. Minister Salleh Said Keruak denies that the legislation amounts to censorship, arguing that the proposal is designed to preserve the Internet as a tool for promoting Malaysia’s economic growth, and meant to protect the country against internal divisions brought about by misleading information published online, he says.

Human rights groups and media freedom advocates denounced the proposal as a curtailment of free speech, saying the move reverses the government’s earlier stated commitment to promoting Internet freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Minister Salleh Said Keruak: this proposed legislation is absolute, and complete, codswallop, and you know it!

Instead of attempting to silence the messenger, is it possible that the current government of Malaysia could, please, be a little less corrupt and a little more transparent?!?

WHITE HOUSE ADMITS — LOCKING PEOPLE IN CAGES FOR VICTIMLESS CRIMES IS DEVASTATING TO THE ECONOMY

On Saturday, economists in U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration released a report detailing the adverse effects on the economy derived from locking non-violent drug offenders and criminals behind bars.

For decades, a guiding philosophy of authoritarians was that locking more people up would result in less crime. This has created a prison state in the U.S., which represents 4.4% of the world’s population yet houses 22% of the world’s prisoners.

Since 1980 alone, the US prison population has skyrocketed by nearly 5 times.

H0wever, the negative effects of such a totalitarian approach to drug crimes and other victimless offenses is having a staggering economic impact on the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alleged US government's "war on drugs" is just plain illogical, costly, and completely ridiculous, period, end of discussion.

The country of Portugal has been a trail blazer, when it comes to enlightened drug policies. What they did was to decriminalise small amounts of drugs for personal use, but urge counseling to help people get off drugs.

The result?!?

A massive decrease in illegal drug use, and much less experimentation with drugs by teens.

But, unfortunately, what the US government appears pathologically incapable of doing is learning from both the successes of other countries, when it comes to drug and prison programs that make sense.

For example, why is Sweden closing so many of their prisons?!? The reason for this is that the focus of prison is 100% rehabilitation, and the recidivism here is minimal.

OF course the Swedish approach is logical, and the results speak for themselves.

Logic and the US government, unfortunately, have the most tenuous relationship possible at best.

NEW CRISPR GENE EDITING METHOD CAN EDIT SINGLE LETTERS OF DNA

Harvard University researchers have developed a new method of using CRISPR to alter single letters in the DNA code. This opens up the possibility of reversing mutations caused by the changing of only one letter, which represents nearly two thirds of all genetic mutations.

CRISPR has revolutionized the world of gene editing. It has allowed scientists to conduct advanced research into diseases, research live cells, and it’s not expensive or overly complicated. But one thing it has always lacked is specificity. In some respects, it is the sledgehammer, not the sword; the cleaver, not the scalpel.

That is, until now.

Harvard University researchers have developed a new method of using CRISPR to alter single letters in the DNA code. This opens up the possibility of reversing mutations (and the diseases that stem from them) caused by the changing of only one letter, which represents nearly two thirds of all genetic mutations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a technology which can be used for either great good...or great evil, in the wrong hands.

Remember those genetically engineered armies in the Tolkien books?!? We are on the brink of being able to create that with this new advance in gene editing. And trust me, DARPA is going to want to get their collective hands around this ASAP.

DONALD TRUMP PREDICTS MAJOR LAWSUIT COMING AGAINST TED CRUZ OVER HIS CANADIAN BIRTH

Rafael Edward Cruz, better known as "Ted," was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on December 22, 1970. Cruz's father, Rafael, was born in Cuba, while his mother, Eleanor, was born in Delaware. Though the United States Constitution requires that anyone running for president must be a "Natural Born Citizen," the document never details the definition of the term. While the issue was assumed to be dead, Donald Trump brought Cruz's birther issue up during his most recent campaign stop, as reported by The Hill on April 23.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is an important fact to keep in mind.

Rafael Cruz (Ted's father) was married to his second wife Julia Ann Garza from 1959 – 1996. Ted's mother, Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson, gave birth to Ted in 1970, while Ted's father was still married to Julia. Under Section 309(c) of the INA, children born out-of-wedlock to Americans abroad do NOT become US citizens at birth! They must be naturalized.

Ted Cruz was not a US citizen at birth.

The Founding Fathers did not need to define what "Natural Born" meant inside the Constitution as it had been defined in existing legal theory in works such as "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 US 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..."

POLICE SWEEP AWAY BRAZIL’S ‘STREET CHILDREN’ AHEAD OF OLYMPICS

With a faltering economy and an $11 billion investment at stake, Brazil wants nothing more than to stage a successful Olympic Games come August. The government is building new transportation and sports venues, hiring security guards and deploying soldiers, and sprucing up Rio de Janeiro’s most-visited areas. But “cleaning the streets,” as the project is euphemistically known, is not an effort to haul garbage but to sweep away homeless people and drug dealers—including the often drug-addicted children who live on the sidewalks of some of Rio’s wealthiest neighborhoods.

In the Copacabana and Maracanã areas, two of the neighborhoods preparing to host the Olympics, teenagers and children as young as 7 sleep by the roadside or beg for change. Boys often join gangs and sell drugs to survive while girls frequently turn to prostitution. Many smoke crack or sniff glue. Some live on the streets full time; others spend nights in the favelas, or nearby shantytowns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A society should be judged on how it treats the most vulnerable of its citizens; what Brazil is doing to the most impoverished, and most vulnerable of its street kids demonstrates a complete, and institutionalized, emotional callousness to the conditions which put these kids on the streets to begin with.

Even with the Olympics coming in August, this will not end well for the Brazilian government, or its people.

An Elon University poll conducted from April 10 to 15 showed Mr. Cooper, the state’s longtime attorney general, leading Mr. McCrory 48 percent to 42 percent among registered voters, the largest lead Mr. Cooper has seen in the five polls Elon has conducted in the last year.

TransCanada Increases Estimate of Keystone Oil Spill from 4.5 Barrels to 400

The company said on Thursday, that they estimate a potential volume of 400 barrels. The earlier estimate was spillage of only 187 gallons.

A spokesman says on-site crews continue to work around the clock to try to determine where the leak is coming from. The crews have excavated more than 100 feet of pipeline [Mark Russo, “Keystone Oil Leak Estimate Dramatically Rises,” KELO-AM, 2016.04.07].

Metro sank into crisis despite decades of warnings

Metro’s failure-prone subway — once considered a transportation jewel — is mired in disrepair because the transit agency neglected to heed warnings that its aging equipment and poor safety culture would someday lead to chronic breakdowns and calamities.

For nearly half a century, almost since construction of the subway system began, federal experts, civic and business groups, private transit organizations, and some Metro general managers and directors have raised red flags.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Part of Agenda 21 is to get people to surrender their cars and rely on mass public transportation. But the systems being built are costly, unreliable, and unsafe!

No One Knows How A Brokered GOP Convention Would Work

No one knows how a brokered GOP convention would work, but Cruz & Kasich are working together to force one

WASHINGTON Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich will start campaigning in coordination Monday, after making statements Sunday night that they would work together to deny frontrunner Donald Trump an outright nomination. A contested GOP convention would allow delegates to vote independently for who should lead the party’s ticket in November. Trump has 845 delegates and needs 392 more to claim the party’s nomination. David Lightman explains what could happen if Cruz and Kasich succeed in forcing a contested convention.

The 2016 Republican National Convention is shaping up as a free-for-all where every delegate is a kingmaker, rules could change and no one will have an easy time figuring out what’s going on.

Will John Kasich Hand Trump the Nomination?

The best delegate trackers out there still think it likely that Donald Trump will fall short of the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the GOP nomination on the first ballot.

But there’s one man who can cut a deal and instantly make Trump the de facto nominee: Ohio governor John Kasich. He would then probably be responsible for setting in motion devastating GOP losses in November of not only the White House but also control of the U.S. Senate. Kasich himself claims there is “zero chance” he would sign on as Trump’s running mate as part of a deal to deliver his delegates for Trump. But Lyndon Johnson said the same thing before he became John F. Kennedy’s running mate, and so too did John Nance Garner before hitching up with FDR in 1932.

Intel To Lay Off 12,000 People

Intel to lay off 12,000 people. Is the iconic chipmaker in trouble?
The technology pioneer announced a new focus that shifts its business further away from its legacy in personal computers to the fast growing cloud and 'Internet of Things' industries.

As it navigates its path into the future, Intel, the 47-year-old corporation best known for making microprocessor chips that power personal computers, has announced significant changes to its business.

On Tuesday, Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich said in a letter to employees that the company over the next year will cut its 107,300-person global workforce by 12,000 people, or 11 percent.

The move, said Mr. Krzanich, is meant to help transform Intel from a PC company to one that powers the cloud and the ‘Internet of Things,’ a term used to describe connected devices such as washing machines, coffeemakers, and automobiles. It also will save the chipmaker $750 million this year, says Intel in a public announcement.

9/11 truth poses ‘existential threat’ to Israel: Analyst

The recent media frenzy over Saudi Arabia’s possible role in the September 11, 2001 attacks is aimed at distracting people from much deeper involvement of Israel as the truth would endanger the Tel Aviv regime’s existence, an analyst in Idaho says.

“It’s a big deal,” said Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, a trade group that represents about 500 companies working in the oil patch in the western part of the state. “Once you get a barrel to sea, it will fetch a better price.”

The ban on crude exports was put in place in response to the energy crisis of the 1970s.
***
“Where crude goes is where it gets the best value,” Roper said. “We are always seeking higher value. When the value is right, we will definitely do it.”

The company has said that producers could earn up to $14 more per barrel for domestic sweet crude by selling it on the world market.
***
Ness said lifting the export ban should help bring higher prices for North Dakota oil.

“The whole world is a market now,” he said.

US Lobbyists Meddling in Thailand a Concern For All Of Asia

By Tony Cartalucci

Thailand-based newspaper Bangkok Post in its article, “Yingluck denies Thaksin’s involvement,” refers to ousted, US-backed dictator Thaksin Shinawatra, removed from power in 2006 by a military coup after nearly two terms in office trampling the rule of law and the lives and livelihood of the Thai people, and claims that he has extensively relied on foreign lobbyists in a bid to return to power.

During this struggle to return to power, he has placed a series of proxies in his place, most notably his own brother-in-law Somchai Wongsawat who served as prime minister in 2008, and his own sister Yingluck Shinawatra who served as prime minister from 2011-2014 before being removed by a subsequent coup...

EU-US Trade Deal 'Will Fail' If US Refuses Concessions: German Minister
Negotiations on a US-EU free trade deal "will fail" if the US refuses to make concessions, German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel warned Sunday ahead of a visit by US President Barack Obama.

"The Americans want to hold fast to their 'Buy American' idea. We can't accept that. They don't want to open their public tenders to European companies. For me, that goes against free trade, If the Americans hold fast to this position, we don't need the free trade treaty. And TTIP will fail."

History of Nordic EU referendums holds lessons for British vote

With Britain’s noisy campaign over a possible Brexit polarizing voters, tight referendums over EU membership two decades ago in Norway and Sweden offer lessons how campaigns that stay positive and focus on ordinary people can swing voters at the last minute.

In the space of just two weeks in 1994, Sweden voted by 52.3 percent to join the EU, while Norway voted by 52.2 percent to stay out. They were two of the closest-run EU referendums in history, momentous decisions that split families, generations and political parties.

Both nations are relevant to the British campaign. Norway is touted as a model by Brexit supporters, with close EU trade ties despite remaining outside. Sweden is seen as a successful arm’s-length approach to EU membership, retaining its own currency.

College Board deletes discussion on monetary/banking reforms as ‘not related to teaching AP Economics;’ Emperor’s New Clothes naked debt continues waddling down US pot-holed streets

Highlights of this discussion:

Of course, this is the opposite of professional academic discussion. Zero colleagues spoke-up in support or interest of this data.

‘NYT’ exposes Clinton as most hawkish candidate when it’s too late for readers to choose

The piece is an ode to Clinton’s “pugnacity” and her “muscular brand of American foreign policy,” with a celebratory chorus line of Robert Gates, Jake Sullivan and various functionaries. And lest you had any doubt about the newspaper’s point of view, there’s this foolish bonbon at the end:

It’s an open question how well Clinton’s hawkish instincts match the country’s mood. Americans are weary of war and remain suspicious of foreign entanglements. And yet, after the retrenchment of the Obama years, there is polling evidence that they are equally dissatisfied with a portrait of their country as a spent force

It’s not an open question actually. As Stephanie Schriock of Emily’s List told J Street last week, the mood of the people is isolationist, they don’t want to be engaged in foreign wars.

Firms that paid for Clinton speeches have US gov't interests

It's not just Wall Street banks. Most companies and groups that paid Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to speak between 2013 and 2015 have lobbied federal agencies in recent years, and more than one-third are government contractors, an Associated Press review has found. Their interests are sprawling and would follow Clinton to the White House should she win election this fall. The AP's review of federal records, regulatory filings and correspondence showed that almost all the 82 corporations, trade associations and other groups that paid for or sponsored Clinton's speeches have actively sought to sway the government — lobbying, bidding for contracts, commenting on federal policy and in some cases contacting State Department officials or Clinton herself during her tenure as secretary of state.

How Long Before Global Financial System Fails?

The global economy turned down in earnest already in 2006 but with a massive worldwide printing and lending program, the world has had a temporary stay of execution. But the effect of this fabricated money has now come to an end. And what else would you expect. To print money that has no value or to lend money that doesn’t exist can never create wealth or save anybody. The downturn will soon start to accelerate and eventually lead to a total failure of the financial system and sovereign defaults. But no one must believe that there will be a sudden implosion or a “reset” that solves or changes everything. Instead, what we will experience is a process with things deteriorating at a fast pace but without one single event that overnight changes everything.

The order applies to nonviolent and violent felons, and according to a confidential draft of research for the order obtained by the Richmond Times Dispatch, is authorized under the Constitution of Virginia. Why this surprising announcement now? As Reuters says, the "move that could help the Democratic nominee in November's presidential election."

In other words Hillary's elections chances just jump thanks to the support of convicted criminals as at least one state allowed them to vote. Expect many more states to follows.

The documents show that US pressure is focused on potential barriers to trade from the application of EU GMO law. They suggest that the EU should ignore health and environmental safeguards on GMOs to pave the way for a transatlantic trade agreement. The next round of TTIP negotiations starts on 25 April 2016 in New York.

Nina Holland, researcher for Corporate Europe Observatory, says:

New Report Proves US Law Enforcement Preparing for Rioting on a National Scale

By Claire Bernish

Fascism doesn’t often sweep in overnight and take over some hapless nation’s government; rather, it gradually seeps into the cultural fabric — as is quietly taking place all around the globe, evidenced by an upsurge in sales of riot equipment that has gone largely unnoticed.

A new report from analysts with industry research group, Sandler Research, forecasts the Global Riot Control System Market for the next four years — but beyond a burgeoning market to parallel the expanding global police state, it appears world governments are also keenly aware of civilian discontent...

BRICS Under Attack: Western Banks, Governments Launch Full-Spectrum Assault on Russia

when it comes to a country as large as Russia, with its vast military capabilities, consolidated and wildly popular political leadership, and growing antagonism toward the West, the tools available to the Empire to undermine and destabilize are in some ways more limited.

Indeed, in the context of Russia, the popular mobilization pretext does not apply, and so that weapon in the imperial arsenal is blunted considerably. But there are other, equally potent (and equally dangerous) methods to achieve the desired effect.

Russia is the target of a multi-faceted, asymmetric campaign of destabilization that has employed economic, political, and psychological forms of warfare, each of which has been specifically designed to inflict maximum damage on the Kremlin. While the results of this multi-pronged assault have been mixed, and their ultimate effect being the subject of much debate, Moscow is, without a doubt, ground zero in a global assault against the BRICS nations.

REVENGE OF THE VIKINGS — ICELAND WILL CREATE ITS OWN MONEY

Back in 1914, the Bradbury Pound was introduced by the UK government as an ’emergency measure’ to bolster a failing economy. It was a huge success. The banking elite were unhappy, however and panicked – before managing to wrestle control of the money supply afterwards. President John F. Kennedy also introduced a similar ‘Greenback’ in 1961, and again, the banking elite were very unhappy about being pushed out, and losing control of the issuance of money as debt. JFK did not survive past 1963.

Man Enters Little Girls Showers, Strips Nude, Claims He's a Women. We Told You So!

On February 8, 2016 at Evans Pool in Seattle, Washington, a man wearing board shorts entered the women's locker room and took all his clothes off. When females alerted staff they asked the man to leave.

“The law has changed and I have a right to be here,” the man told them, citing the transgender rule.

Fearing getting sued for "discrimination", the Trojan Horse hook the gaystapo lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, pedophile, necrophile, coprophile and zoophile community uses to attack your basic human and civil rights, the Parks and Recreation city staffers declined to call police.

Did Wall Street Journal ad denying Armenian Genocide cross the line?

The decision by the WSJ to run an advertisement denying the Armenian Genocide was a judgment call, but it certainly seems to be pushing the limits of free speech, political cartoonist Ted Rall told RT.

Just days before Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day on April 24, the WSJ courted controversy by publishing an advert by a Turkish group denying genocide occurred. Armenia claims over one and a half million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were killed by Turks in 1915. Turkey admits Armenians were mistreated but denies any genocide took place.

US suicide rate hits 30-year high, female rate spikes while males are majority

A new analysis by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has reported that the rate of suicide in the US steadily increased from 1999 to 2014 after consistently decreasing from 1986 to 1999. The report found that greater annual rises occurred after 2006.

From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates increased for males and females of all ages between 10 and 74, the NCHS revealed Friday. Only those aged 75 and older saw declines in suicides in that time period.

The rate of suicide among women is climbing at a rate faster than men. The age-adjusted suicide rate for females increased by 45 percent from 1999 to 2014, as opposed to an increase of 16 percent for males.

However, males (20.7) still hold a suicide rate that is triple the rate of female (5.8) suicide.

So knowing all of that, here's her daughter Chelsea as she's pandering for Hillary on the campaign trail, just basically saying her mother will have a much easier time passing gun control that won't get thrown out by the Supreme Court now that Justice Scalia is dead.

Paul Craig Roberts: Washington Launches Its Attack Against BRICS

Having removed the reformist President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Washington is now disposing of the reformist President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff.

Washington used a federal judge to order Argentina to sacrifice its debt restructuring program in order to pay US vulture funds the full value of defaulted Argentine bonds that the vulture funds had bought for a few pennies on the dollar. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/27/us-vulture-funds-argentin... These vultures were called “creditors” who had made “loans” regardless of the fact that they were not creditors and had made no loans. They were opportunists after easy money and were used by Washington to get rid of a reformist government.

President Kirchner resisted and, thus, she had to go. Washington concocted a story that Kirchner covered up an alleged Iranian bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994. This implausible fantasy, for which there is no evidence of Iranian involvement, was fed to one of Washington’s agents in the state prosecutor’s office, and a dubious event of 22 years ago was used to clear Kirchner out of the way of the American looting of Argentina.

SECRET COURT TAKES ANOTHER BITE OUT OF THE FOURTH AMENDMENT

Defenders of the NSA's mass spying have lost an important talking point: that the erosion of our privacy and associational rights is justified given the focus of surveillance efforts on combating terrorism and protecting the national security. That argument has always been dubious for a number of reasons. But after a November 2015 ruling [.pdf] by the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) was unsealed this week, it's lost another chunk of its credibility. The ruling confirms that NSA's warrantless spying has been formally approved for use in general criminal investigations. The national security justification has been entirely blown.

The amicus appointed by the FISC, Amy Jeffress a former DOJ attorney, argued:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This program violates the 4th Amendment, which guarantees Americans freedom from unreasonable search and seizure.

This is why the 4th Amendment was created: to enshrine these rights in the Bill of Rights.

I would politely suggest that the FISC court has absolutely no reason for being in the first place, except to guarantee some judicial bureaucrats the only jobs they could find when they realized that were pathologically incapable of being employed in the private sector.

AFTER FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, 76-YO VET SENTENCED TO DIE IN PRISON FOR TREATING HIS ILLNESS WITH CANNABIS

As public frustration helps sound the death knell for the drug war, its arbitrary laws and policies appear even more absurd. In the latest inexcusable enforcement of an antiquated law, 76-year-old disabled veteran Lee Carroll Brooker will live out what should be his golden years behind bars — for simple possession of cannabis.

Brooker had been treating multiple chronic conditions with cannabis he grew in his son’s backyard; but when officials in Alabama officials discovered the three dozen plants, they threw him in prison for life — without the possibility of parole.

Thanks to a pointless mandatory minimum sentencing catchall — and the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear his case this week — Brooker has been left little recourse but to ultimately die in jail for treating his ailments with a plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prosecutor in this case must be very pleased with himself; another scalp on the belt, I am sure, must have made him nothing less than ecstatic.

And that the Supreme Court refused to hear it makes them culpable in the quicker death this man in prison than he would most likely have had outside of captivity.

But the way this case came down, on a 76 year old, decorated Veteran, dealing with multiple, chronic illnesses has to be insult to injury, and never should have happened.

This is what happens when you have a "one size fits all" piece of legislation which is so clumsily constructed that there is no room for either mercy or justice.

"A Guide To 9-11 Lies - Hijacker issue irrelevant to determining blame"

Probably because of recent incendiary remarks by presidential candidate Donald Trump about former President George W. Bush’s involvement with 9/11 and the fictitious charges he manufactured to justify his criminal invasion of Iraq, the debate over who was responsible for the destruction of the Twin Towers and the deaths of 3,000 people in New York City has reemerged as a hot topic in mainstream media.

Commentators and politicians are lining up to once again try to implicate Saudi Arabia as the actual perpetrators of the colossal disaster because of their alleged support for the men blamed for piloting jetliners into the World Trade Center.

But the emphasis on the nationality of the so-called hijackers reveals the recent attention given to the subject to be yet another fraud perpetrated by the kosher media moguls trying mightily to cover up the principal role of Israel and Jew traitors in the American government in the greatest crime in American history.

There is no possible way Hillary will release the transcripts of those speeches because they would reveal how much she is in their corner. Hillary’s response is simply that she does not believe the people are interested in those transcripts. Like her illegal server, she is the most secretive person in Washington circles in many years.

The New McCarthyism – The “Anti-Semitism” Hysteria Gripping the UK

Tony Greenstein has been suspended from the Labour Party for alleged anti-Semitism. Tony is 100% Jewish from an Orthodox family. But he is also one of the founders of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and in the current hysterical witch-hunt, being pro-Palestinian rights is sufficient indication of anti-Semitism. Just as making herbal medicine used to make you a witch.

The catalyst for the campaign is that one of the clearest dividing lines between Blairites and Corbyn supporters is Israel. Blairites are unanimously, unequivocally pro-Israel and prepared to defend even the most blatantly disproportionate Israeli attacks on Gaza, land grabs or checkpoint shootings as self-defence. Corbyn supporters unanimously have more sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians and are critical of what they view (and I agree) as the apartheid state Israel has developed.

Video: Why the Central Bank Dropped Jackson on the $20 & Kept Hamilton on the $10

Let's not pretend that dollar isn't a tool of enslavement… Behind the news that Harriet Tubman will appear on the face of the $20 bill is a hidden struggle between the faction that wanted to kill the private central bank in America, and the faction that empowered it.

Originally, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew was going to replace Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first Treasury secretary, on the $10 bill in favor of a woman's face (originally it was going to be Susan B. Anthony)

But former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke was "appalled" and launched a revolt to oust President Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill instead.

Why? Because Hamilton, on the $10, instituted a central bank and fought for strong central government, while Jackson, on the $20, vowed to kill the central bank.

So much for plausible deniability. While apologists and propagandists for the government in Kiev have tried their best to dismiss concerns about the government’s connection to neo-fascist movements, the jig is undeniably up. The new speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Andriy Parubiy, is a longtime neo-Nazi activist who was a founder of the national socialist party of Ukraine. The party was recently renamed Svoboda which, along with many neofascists, has seen its political fortunes rise in the wake of the 2014 US-backed coup. Parubiy played a significant role in the coup, serving as commandant of the Euromaidan, where he and other neo-fascists helped violently overthrow the democratically-elected President Viktor Yanukovych. The armed battles with security forces in Kiev were carried out by many people, who would later join the right wing militias that would fight in the Ukraine Civil War.

Netanyahu, Putin tweak military coordination as Syria conditions change

Netanyahu's comments to diplomatic reporters by phone from Moscow came at the end of a two-and-a-half hour meeting he had with Putin in the Kremlin.

Netanyahu said that in light of security issues that he raised with Putin, the Russian leader recommended that OC Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel, as well as Netanyahu's military attache Brig.-Gen Eliezer Toledano, hold an immediate meeting with his defense ministry.

“They went there and discussed in dealt the coordination between our armies on a number of issues that have been on the agenda,” Netanyahu said. “That is important because we must preserve the freedom of action of the IDF and the air force in areas that are important for our security. And I think that was achieved.”

Netanyahu said that “problems naturally arise” when you have two militaries operating so close to one another, and that “if you don't deal with that friction, it could develop into something much more serious, as we say on another front.”

If enacted, it could cause serious military and social problems for Crimea; or perhaps, this is just what Erdogan wants to see happen, as a "distraction" to Russia while he goes after parts of Syria to potentially annex them for Turkey.

Is This The End Of The U.S Dollar? Geopolitical Moves “Obliterate U.S Petrodollar Hegemony “ by Mac Slavo

It seems the end really is nigh for the U.S. dollar.

And the mudfight for global dominance and currency war couldn’t be more ugly or dramatic.

The Saudis are now openly threatening to take down the U.S. economy in the ongoing fallout over collapsing oil prices and tense geopolitical events involving the 9/11 cover-up. The New York Times reports:

Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

China has been working for years to establish global currency status, and will strengthen the yuan by backing it with gold in moves clearly designed to cripple the role of the dollar. Zero Hedge reports:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not if, but when the dollar no longer maintains its global hegemony.

And many times, monetary wars turn into actual shooting wars, and the US seems to be very close to starting those wars with both Russia and China, to prevent this.

I am doing my best to be the voice of calm, rational thinking here; but please, prepare yourself, if you have not already, for what may be a very difficult transitional time for this economy and nation.

State Department Office Removed Benghazi Files After Congressional Subpoena

State Department officials removed files from the secretary’s office related to the Benghazi attack in Libya and transferred them to another department after receiving a congressional subpoena last spring, delaying the release of the records to Congress for over a year.

Attorneys for the State Department said the electronic folders, which contain hundreds of documents related to the Benghazi attack and Libya, were belatedly rediscovered at the end of last year.

They said the files had been overlooked by State Department officials because the executive secretary’s office transferred them to another department and flagged them for archiving last April, shortly after receiving a subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient for Secretary Clinton; except that now, this fact is going to come back to haunt her campaign, big-time!!

Timing is everything; and the timing of this transfer of files "for archiving" speaks volumes about how completely bogus the original cover-up of what really happened here was.

This woman has all the credibility of a dead tree stump; and I am going to get nasty emails from dead tree stumps on this one!!

Washington Attempts To Break the Truce by Accusing Syrian Government of Airstrikes against Civilians

According to reports of Western media that refer to the propagandistic “Syrian Observatory for human rights”, on Tuesday, 19 April 2016, as a result of two strikes of the air force of Syria in Idlib province about 44 people were killed.

According to the source in the Syrian General Staff, April 19the Syrian Air Forces did not provide any combat sorties in Idlib province, as all the forces were deployed to repel the attack of terrorists in the Latakia and Aleppo provinces.

Propaganda and contradictory messages

Apparently, this is another fake of militants whose goal is to justification of “the Riyadh group” rejection to continue the negotiations in Geneva under the pretext of accusations of the Syrian government in attacks against civilians.

Interestingly, that one of the first media agencies who published this information was the Turkish propaganda Agency “Anadolu”. Erdogan’s media refers to its own sources in the ranks of the fighters:

Sadr Threatens More Protests; 165 Killed in Iraq

Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr called on his followers to continue peaceful protests, while he warned the government against interfering with the demonstrations. Currently, the protesters are limited to using Tahrir Square. Sadr also asked lawmakers who are loyal to him to cease participating in a sit-in that is underway inside Parliament, so that a quorum can be reached. However, he doesn’t want them participating in any voting or procedures except electing a new Cabinet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The deaths here are horrific,and the US government has no one but itself to blame here for the immoral and illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq, coupled with de-Baathifcation.

And Muqtada al Sadr?!?

He isn't going anywhere.

And to those in the bowels of power in DC, who might be mulling some kind of assassination strike against him, to protect the Al-Abadi government; in the immortal words of Tony Soprano "Fuggetaboutit!"

What this would do is generate a revolution in Iraq that would make the 79 revolution in Iran seem like a walk in the woods for American interests in this country.
