Doug Casey: The Real Problem is Government

I give a good number of speeches each year. For some time I've asked audiences a question: "What useful purpose does the U.S. government serve?" I do that not to be challenging or provocative, but to actually find out if anyone else can think of a useful purpose the government serves. The question at first shocks, then amuses and then perplexes almost everyone because it is both so obvious and outrageous that no one ever thinks of asking it. Most people accept the institution of government because it has always been there; they have always assumed it was essential. People do not question its existence, much less its right to exist.

OUTFRONT MEDIA DISHONORS USS LIBERTY VETS AND FRIENDS

We placed this billboard in New Bedford, MA, to honor USS Liberty veterans and to help them and their families get the respect and help they deserve.

But Israel partisans complained, one threatening to take his business elsewhere, so the billboard company reneged on their contract and took the billboard down two weeks early.

Now we’re asking others to SHARE THIS IMAGE to honor these men and their 34 shipmates who never returned. The Liberty is the most decorated crew since WWII. honorlibertyvets.org

PLEASE CONTACT THE BILLBOARD COMPANY, Outfront Media, and ask CEO Jeremy Male to join us in honoring these courageous American veterans

Webmaster's Commentary: 


This is the billboard in question. All it says is that Israel attacked the USS Liberty, which is a matter of historical fact. What Israel wants (and has always wanted) is for the world to forget the crimes they commit, so that they may commit more with impunity.

We will have a representative from the USS Liberty Billboard team, Daniel McGowen, on the radio show nest Tuesday.

Meanwhile, when you contact Outfront Media, tell them you are boycotting all products you see on their billboards, and you are informing those clients that you are boycotting their products precisely because they advertise with Outfront!

That should shake them up!

Ali Abu Kosher Did it Again

Shabbos Goy Ali Abunimah, the man who planned to reduce the Intifada into an electronic noticeboard, did it again. Abunimah is notorious for being an appeaser of light Zionists and AZZs, is caught on the above tweet thanking Stanford Students for stopping a Nakba event featuring an 85-year-old Nakba Survivor and others who have spent their entire lives in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Stanford SJP are now claiming -- falsely -- that they cancelled the event "because "Alison Weir who refuses to respect Israel's "right to exist as a regime" was in the audience.

if Ali Abunimah like Stanford SJP insists upon Israel's right to exist, he should consider Join the Likud party...

Canadian Police Have Had Master Key to BlackBerry’s Encryption Since 2010

A high-level surveillance probe of Montreal’s criminal underworld shows that Canada’s federal policing agency has had a global encryption key for BlackBerry devices since 2010. The revelations are contained in a stack of court documents that were made public after members of a Montreal crime syndicate pleaded guilty to their role in a 2011 gangland murder. The documents shed light on the extent to which the smartphone manufacturer, as well as telecommunications giant Rogers, cooperated with investigators.

VIDEO: Student wearing empty holster cited for 'threatening the safety of campus'

Two University of South Alabama students were confronted by campus police Wednesday, and one student was cited for “causing alarm” by wearing an empty holster. “This week is the empty holster protest for Students for Concealed Carry in Alabama to demonstrate that students are defenseless on campus,” D.J. Parten, president of Students for Concealed Carry, told Campus Reform. Along with fellow club member Kenneth Tews, Parten was also promoting an upcoming screening of the movie Can We Take a Joke? when three campus police officers approached their table demanding identification.

(NaturalNews) Around 3% of US children are homeschooled every year for a variety of reasons, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. The most common reason for homeschooling is that the parents of the child are concerned about the environment in schools or don't feel that their children are making enough progress.

Paying Your Pensions: Syrian Migrants in Memphis Digging in Dumpsters for Sustenance

Moslem migrants are here to do jobs Americans don’t want to do, including terrorism, gang-rape and digging through dumpsters for valuable items.
The Memphis Mirror has a story of one such vibrant diversifier, Nedal Alkhani, a colorful gentleman who Obama brought from Jordan and sent to Memphis to live on welfare for no apparent reason:
Today, Alkhani’s strife is drastically different. He is not surrounded by warfare, but struggles every day to make his family’s next dollar with no English language skills and a sixth grade education.

His worries about money started immediately. He owed the U.S. Department for their flight fares – a total of $6,000.

Refugee families receive a one-time welcome payment of $925 per person from the U.S State Department, or $4,625 total for this family, that was channeled to them through World Relief Memphis.

PARAMOUNT: WE OWN THE KLINGON LANGUAGE

The ongoing lawsuit between Paramount Pictures, CBS Studios and the crowdfunded Star Trek spin-off "Prelude to Axanar" is raising some interesting copyright questions. The spin-off makers argue that several of the Star Trek related elements they use are not copyrightable, but the movie studios clearly disagree.

What's Klingon for "sieg heil!"?

Webmaster addition: I worked on the first Star Trek movie, and Paramount actually hired a language professor to create the Klingon language. Thus, it is a work for hire and under copyright law is the property of Paramount. I think Paramount is being petty and silly,. but legally they are in the right.

Whistleblowers fear prosecution under new European Trade Secrets law

The European Parliament is debating a bill on Thursday critics say threatens to turn whistleblowers into criminals.

The aim of the Trade Secrets Protection Act is to protect European companies from corporate spying by their rivals in other parts of the world.

But critics say journalists and whistleblowers could be criminalised if they publish information that companies deem to be secret.

More than half a million people have signed a petition against the bill.

President Killary : Would The World Survive President Hillary? (Paul Craig Roberts)

Hillary is a war-monger. She pushed the Obama regime into the destruction of a stable and largely cooperative government in Libya where the “Arab Spring” was a CIA-backed group of jihadists who were used to dislodge China from its oil investments in eastern Libya. She urged her husband to bomb Yugoslavia. She pushed for “regime change” in Syria. She oversaw the coup that overthrew the democratically elected president of Honduras. She brought neoconservative Victoria Nuland, who arranged the coup that overthrew the democratically elected president of Ukraine, into the State Department. Hillary has called President Vladimir Putin of Russia the “new Hitler.” Hillary as president guarantees war and more war.

US Report Faults Key Allies for Stifling Freedom, Killing Dissidents

The 40th annual State Department report on human rights is raising more eyebrows than usual this year, as the preface by Secretary of State John Kerry warns of a “global governance crisis” wherein countries around the world are cracking down on basic freedoms and stifling dissent, often violently.

While the report goes after usual targets like China and Russia, it also singles out a number of high-profile US allies on this note, criticizing NATO member Turkey for prosecuting journalists as terrorists and killing Kurdish civilians, criticizing Israel for excessive and arbitrary violence against Palestinians, and noting that Egypt’s military junta continues to torture detainees to death in its prisons.

Webmaster's Commentary:

EU parliament votes to re-approve glyphosate despite ‘concerns about carcinogenicity’

The European Parliament has backed a re-authorization of a pesticide believed to be carcinogenic for another 7 years, despite a widespread protest campaign calling for a full ban instead of a downsized “compromise” deal.
The weedkiller glyphosate is to be given market approval for another seven years, instead of 15 as originally requested, while its use should be limited to professionals only, the European Parliament said in a non-binding resolution approved on Wednesday. The body also advised the chemical shouldn’t be used in public locations, such as parks and playgrounds.

Despite coming up with the approval, the resolution, passed by 374 votes to 225, with 102 abstentions, still noted “concerns about the carcinogenicity and endocrine disruptive properties of the herbicide glyphosate, used in many farm and garden applications.”

The Green Party rioting for a ban said European governments and the European Commission are obliged to take into account the concerns raised by MEPs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, EU Parliament, for the record number of cancer cases we will see in Europe from this approval going forward.

Monsanto must have met their price; knowing that this product has been incontrovertably proven to be carcinogenic, yet allowing its use for another 7 years?!?

This is pure madness, driven by occult money, or blackmail.

As reported at http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Glyphosate_is_Carcinogenic.php:

Enter your email address for notifications of new reports and news from ISIS SUBSCRIBE Open access to science eprints The Sparc provides both scientists and the general public free open access to scientific papers that are important for the survival of people and planet 39 ISIS Report 09/09/15 Glyphosate is Carcinogenic The WHO expert panel reclassified glyphosate as ‘probably carcinogenic’ more than 40 years after it was brought to market, but the range of available evidence is sufficient to classify it definitely carcinogenic. Glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential has been known to Monsanto and the US EPA from long term animal experiments since the early 1980s but repeatedly dismissed. This has resulted in two decades of people and planet being poisoned by glyphosate herbicides on a misclassification of ‘noncarcinogenic’ that has allowed the manufacturer to claim it is ‘safe’ and perpetrating many other falsehoods to promote its ubiquitous and liberal use Dr Mae-Wan Ho and Prof Peter T. Saunders A fully referenced version will be available in an updated version of Banishing Glyphosate Sign the Independent Scientists Manifesto on Glyphosate here: http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Independent_Scientists_Manifesto_on_Glyphosate.php Introduction The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), has released the results of its year-long assessment of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides. In this, the 112th study into potentially carcinogenic agents, it has reclassified glyphosate in Group 2A ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’ [1, 2]. This category is used [1] “when there is limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals.” Previously, the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA), which last reviewed glyphosate in 1993, classified glyphosate in Group E ‘noncarcinogenic’ [3]. Similarly, a 2013 review by the German Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) conducted on behalf of the European Union did not recommend a carcinogen classification of either 2A or 2B (‘possibly carcinogenic’); though that review is mired in controversy, having been largely conducted by a consortium of chemical companies including Monsanto [4] (Scandal of Glyphosate Re-assessment in Europe, SiS 63). Monsanto has called on IARC to retract its assessment [5]. But Aaron Blair, scientist emeritus at the National Cancer Institute who chaired the 17 member Working Group of the IARC that carried out the assessment, robustly defended the decision, saying it is “appropriately based on current science” [6]. The IARC experts in the Working Group were selected for their expertise and most importantly, the absence of real or apparent conflicts of interest. Following the protocol required by the IARC, the Working Group considered only “reports that have been published or accepted for publication in the openly available scientific literature” as well as “data from governmental reports that are publicly available”. Notably, Blair told a journalist there were good grounds to declare that glyphosate definitely causes cancer [7]. But “the epidemiologic data was a little noisy.” While several studies suggested a link, another study in the US of farmers in Iowa and North Carolina did not. There had been a similar inconsistency in epidemiological studies of benzene now universally acknowledged as a carcinogen, Blair added. What Blair did not mention, for example, was that crucial evidence of carcinogenicity in animal experiments had existed at least since 1981 but successively dismissed as documented in EPA’s own archives (see below). In the meantime, US government data show steep rise in dozens of chronic diseases including cancers closely tracking the rapid increase in glyphosate use and the adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops, of which USA is the top producer by far [8]. In Argentina, the third producer of GM crops, where the use of pesticides including glyphosate has increased more than 8.5-fold since the introduction of GM crops 20 years ago, non-government organizations and doctors have been documenting rising incidences of cancers and birth defects among farmers and their families and others exposed to glyphosate spraying (see Chapter 3 of [9] Banishing Glyphosate, ISIS special report). Taking these and other additional findings into proper account would surely have been sufficient to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen. Asked to comment on the IARC’s reclassification, Fernando Manas, a member of the Genetics and Environmental Mutagenesis (GEMA) Group at the National University of Río Cuarto in Cordoba, Argentina, who has investigated the effect of agrochemicals for the past 9 years, confirmed the link between glyphosate and genetic damage, which leads to cancer and a higher risk of spontaneous abortions and birth defects in the new born, and said that the classification by IARC-WHO is a consequence of the growing scientific evidence generated by independent investigators. Furthermore, he pointed out that [10] this evidence, which has been deliberately ignored until now, means that “millions of gallons of herbicide with carcinogenic potential have been used according to regulations designed for a virtually harmless substance.” For two decades, entire populations were “subjected” to chronic pesticide exposures “based on criteria developed by the same companies that produce and market” agrochemicals.

How Hillary Helped Ruin Haiti

Last week Haiti’s Electoral Council postponed the nation’s current presidential election indefinitely. The present chaos is a fitting coda to the recent presidency of Michel Martelly, a novice politician who governed accordingly.

Amid the current upheaval, the name Mirlande Manigat is well worth recalling. As Haiti struggled to dig out from the disastrous 2010 earthquake, Manigat stood poised to become its first elected female president—until Hillary Clinton’s State Department intervened.

In late November 2010, Manigat, a Duvalier-era exile, topped a field of 19 candidates, garnering 31 percent of the vote and setting herself up for a runoff election against the initial second-place finisher, Jude Celestin. A close ally at the time with Haiti’s then-President Rene Preval, Celestin barely edged out Martelly, the popular singer better known as Sweet Micky.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Everything Hillary Clinton touched, during her tenure as Secretary of State, turned into an absolute disaster for the people of the countries she was, allegedly "helping", when the only people she was really "helping" were those who paid to play, by contributing to the Clinton Foundation.

Can someone, with a straight face, tell me why this woman deserves to be President?!? And yes, I want a woman in the White House; just please, Lord, Not That Woman!!!

US corporations have $1.4tn hidden in tax havens, claims Oxfam report

US corporate giants such as Apple, Walmart and General Electric have stashed $1.4tn (£980bn) in tax havens, despite receiving trillions of dollars in taxpayer support, according to a report by anti-poverty charity Oxfam.

Tax havens don’t need to be reformed. They should be outlawed

The Panama Papers demonstrate that for all the fine words about transparency on tax, the world’s kleptocrats are still getting away with it

The sum, larger than the economic output of Russia, South Korea and Spain, is held in an “opaque and secretive network” of 1,608 subsidiaries based offshore, said Oxfam.

The charity’s analysis of the financial affairs of the 50 biggest US corporations comes amid intense scrutiny of tax havens following the leak of the Panama Papers.

And the charity said its report, entitled Broken at the Top was a further illustration of “massive systematic abuse” of the global tax system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These companies get away with this behaviour because they are allowed to get away with this behaviour, legally.

And the loopholes will never be fixed, because these are the same corporations which so generously fund Congressional and Presidential candidates.

The rich rarely eat their own.

FORMER US STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TO BUY UKRAINE'S LARGEST TELCOM COMPANY

This is just about as insane and open of an inside look, as to how US empire operators grab the spoils of their interventions that result in turmoil, that you are ever likely to get.

As is clear, the US played an important role in the Ukrainian revolution as revealed by the release of a recording of a phone call between Assistant US Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt (SEE: An Important Second Listen to the "F--k the EU" Ukraine Recording).

But, Nuland isn't the only US State Department official playing a major role in Ukraine.

A US citizen, the Elmhurst, Illinois-born Natalie Jaresko, obtained a second citizenship (Ukrainian) on December 2, 2014, the day of, get this, her appointment as Minister of Finance of Ukraine.

So what is Jaresko up to as finance minister of Ukraine?

She is about to take control, for herself, of Datagroup, the Ukraine telecom company that controls 85% of the Ukranian telecom market.

UC DAVIS PAID $175,000 OR MORE TO SCRUB POLICE PEPPER SPRAY INCIDENT FROM WEB SEARCHES

After a police officer pepper-sprayed UC Davis students in a widely reported 2011 incident, the California university contracted with SEO consultants for $175,000 (or maybe more) to scrub unfavorable online items about the incident and boost online reputations of both the university and Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi.

The Sacramento Bee reported on the SEO scandal, and based their story on documents newly released in response to requests filed last month under the California Public Records Act.

In January 2013, UC Davis contracted a Maryland firm, Nevins & Associates, for a six-month contract that paid $15,000 a month. Nevins was the first of many "reputation management firms" paid off by the university administrators. And that payment was just the start.

Webmaster's Commentary:

U.S. CITIZENS MAY BE BANNED FROM BUYING BODY ARMOR

It’s time to remind US citizens again of HR 378, the Act that would “prohibit the purchase, ownership, or possession of enhanced body armor by civilians, with exceptions,” (source). The Act caused a stir when it was first reported on in early 2015, but has since dwindled in the media, and slipped through the cracks of the public’s attention. The proposal is still open, however, and those who are interested can track its progress through the (source) link above.

The Act was proposed on January 14, 2015 by Representatives Michael Honda (D-CA), Alcee Hastings (D-FL), Robin Kelly (D-IL), and Danny Davis (D-IL). According to washingtonwatch.com, other sponsors or cosponsors include Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), and Julia Brownley (D-CA).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are very lucky here on Oahu; the police are generally courteous here, and I have never, ever had a confrontation at all with any police professional. Yes, I have had a couple of speeding tickets, but I earned them.

But I cannot begin to appreciate how horrific it must be for inner city moms and dads to wonder, when their teens walk out of the house, if they will actually come back, and in one piece.

There is a cultural illness which has infected American policing, and it happened just about the same time as police officers began to be trained by members, and former members, of the IDF, meaning that Americans were now going to be treated like the Israeli military treats the Palestinians.

Police in this country appear to have adopted a "Code Napoleon" approach to law enforcement, which means that suspects are presumed guilty until proven innocent, which is the absolute, polar opposite of what American jurisprudence has always been about. And the higher-ups at both the state and national levels seem to have transmitted the message that behaving with complete impunity toward the American people is perfectly acceptable.

This has to stop.

Judge Rules Docs Taken from Sandy Hook Shooter's House Must Stay Secret

Many of Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza's darkest secrets are going to stay secret.

A Connecticut judge has overturned a decision by the state's Freedom of Information Commission to release a spiral-bound notebook that the mass murderer called "The Big Book of Granny" and into which he poured his thoughts, The Hartford Courant reported Tuesday.

Image: A police cruiser sits in the driveway of the home of Nancy Lanza

The judge also nixed the release of a spreadsheet of earlier mass killings that Lanza created, according to the Courant, which had requested the items.

The FOIA, Judge Carl Schuman wrote, does not apply to "documents that were private property before seizure by the police and that a court would ordinarily order returned to the rightful owner by the end of a criminal case."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how many drug companies are in Judge Schuman's portfolio, in light of the following report, from ablechild.org, reported in 2014:

Lanza appeared to be on psychiatric drugs when the shooting spree occurred; is that what the judge in this case doesn't want the public to find out, in terms of the side effects of the drugs Lanza was prescribed?!?

ILLINOIS POLICE DEPT GETS RID OF BODY CAMS BECAUSE ADMINISTRATIVE WORKLOAD IS TOO BURDENSOME

The Minooka Police Department decided that the benefits from police body cameras do not outweigh the inconvenient administrative work associated with their use. They have halted the department use of body cameras after only six months.

In 2013, a high-profile study of the use of police body cameras in Rialto California showed their use to be nothing short of stunning. After body cameras had been implemented, the department saw a 60% reduction in use of force instances and an 88% reduction in officer complaints.

After the highly controversial murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, the topic of police body cameras became part of the national discussion. Departments across the country began adopting the beneficial technology.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do not travel to any state where police body cameras are not mandated; this can be completely hazardous to your health, if not your life.

Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House is getting threats from Donald Trump supporters

This was predictable.

Emails obtained by ABC News sent to Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House tell him to “quit whining” about all the threatening calls and emails he’s receiving. Another email tells him to “pray” he makes it to Cleveland, and instructs him to support Trump or “you are done.” One email provided to ABC News tells House to hide his family members.

“This does not have to do with Trump. This has everything to do with “the people” having a chance to vote,” one email sent today read. “Stop being a j-----f and admit that the residents of Colorado SHOUT [to] have the chance to vote rather than a slim minority telling the residents of CO who they have to vote for. That is the real story here. Quit whining about all the calls and email you’re getting. It’s your job. If you don’t want it – RESIGN.”

16 Year Old Fatally Shot By Chicago Police

Chicago is once again seething with rage after a deadly shooting by a police officer, the latest in a spate of violence that has strained relations between the community and law enforcement.

Hundreds of residents took to the streets Tuesday night, one day after authorities identified the person shot and killed by police as 16-year-old Pierre Loury.

The turmoil on the streets came on the eve of a momentous day for the besieged police force:

- In a blistering report, a mayoral task force said police "have no regard for the sanctity of life when it comes to people of color" and have alienated blacks and Hispanics with the use of force and a longstanding code of silence.

NYPD Sued After Kicking Wrong Family Out of Home

The New York Police Department got an order kicking a family of four out of their Queens apartment by telling a judge it was a drug den, but the dealers had moved out seven months earlier. A lawsuit to be filed in Brooklyn Federal Court on Tuesday details an egregious case of the NYPD’s use of the nuisance abatement law — a controversial tool in which cops are able to get a temporary order barring people from their homes without first giving them the opportunity to appear before a judge. The bungled operation left Austria Bueno, 32, a housekeeper, crashing at a hotel and on a relative’s floor, beside her two sons and husband, for four nights, as they waited for their first court date.

On his 273rd birthday, Jefferson’s legacy is more important than ever

Unfortunately, professors and history teachers are failing modern students by focusing on Jefferson’s slave ownership as a reason to discount his example. He led the first American fight against an entity obsessed with the idea of enslaving all of Western society based on its religious teachings. And as a free nation whose very identity is built on the rejection of such dogmatic evil, Americans ignore that part of Jefferson’s legacy at our own peril. If we continue to do so, we may find ourselves grappling with a new kind of slavery in the not so distant future.

The draft of a Senate bill effectively banning strong encryption in the United States leaked to the public early Friday morning, delivering the latest thunderclap in a worldwide political storm over encryption technology, cybersecurity, and privacy.

The intensity of the global debate over encryption in 2015 apparently took so many people by surprise that American politicians who once championed and voted to fund encryption technologies are now among those leading the charge toward legally mandated “backdoors” for law enforcement.

Yet for the last 18 months that is exactly what they have been doing. The S&P 500 closed today exactly where it first crossed in November 2014. In the interim, it’s been a roller-coaster of rips, dips, spills and thrills.

An Interview with Judge Anna Von Reitz About Our History

It’s both a commercial crime and a war crime against defenseless, non-combatant civilians. This had been done to us by foreign governments and international banks. I want everyone to know that the principal banks responsible for this are the Federal Reserve, the World Bank, the International Bank of Reconstruction and Development, and the International Monetary Fund. These four banks are the principal conspirators and they have acted in collusion with each other to front governmental services corporations. Now, under the Constitution the Federal government was given certain duties – certain functions to perform, which are called powers, but should more correctly be called abilities or services to perform. Those nineteen enumerated services are all in international jurisdiction. There isn’t a single one of them that has anything to do with the land or the people on the land.

HUD Threatens To Sue Landlords Who Screen Tenants For Felonies

The Obama administration has just made it easier for felons to move in next door. Landlords who don’t want tenants who are going to mug their neighbors or deal drugs will now be treated as racists and potentially sued.

MAN NEARLY KILLED & ARRESTED FOR DOING NOTHING WRONG

According to Officer William Wright, Carmona “got out of the car holding a gun and pointed it directly at him, then dropped it, picked it up and pointed it again.” Wright then claimed that he ‘feared for his life’ and drew his own gun.

Wright made the arrest, and the citizens of Houston were saved by this heroic cop from a dangerous gun-toting gangster who tried to kill him. At least that’s the version of the story Wright told.

However, thanks to the surveillance camera attached to the front of the convenience store, Wright has just been exposed as a bold-faced liar.

At the same time, the NSA finds a relevant patent held by one of its "friends" in the industry, and then asks those friends to send around their patent lawyers to the new startup it is funding, to get it shut down in a perfectly non-suspicious way.

Hillary Clinton’s Backers Want Obama to Grant a Preemptive Pardon—To Prevent Her From Facing “A Martha Stewart Problem”

With FBI Director James Comey’s statement this week that the massive investigation of possible criminality by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could linger into the fall, some of her political advisers have become convinced that the best option for her would be to shut it down now, which could be accomplished if President Obama would grant a preemptive pardon for any crimes she may have committed.

'Damn emails?' Actually, they're damning emails.

While I was proud of Bernie Sanders when he refused to stoop to attacking Hillary Clinton on what I initially believed to be merely another manufactured right wing scandal, I now believe Sanders will have to address Clinton's 'damn emails,' as they do, in fact, damn her.

As a former postal employee, I became quite familiar with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)--which governs the employees of the federal government--and the United States Code (USC)--which specifies crimes and their penalties. Let's just say there's a valid reason the term 'going postal' has descended into the vernacular, and leave it at that. Upon visiting my old friends CFR and USC, I discovered a number of things about Clinton's 'damn emails' that the mainstream media and the 'legal experts' it has interviewed have been conveniently ignoring in their rush to the coronation. Those things, and the opinions of people who have held high-level security clearances, lead me to believe that an indictment is justified.

No doubt about it. In comparison to Washington’s other weapons trafficking exploits, like Operation Fast & Furious, this one is even more reckless, dangerous, totally unethical – and completely illegal. Back in 2011, President Obama green-lighted one of the CIA’s worst ever operations – one which resulted in a five year-long flood of weapons, ammunition – right into the hands of ‘moderate’ terrorist fighters running wild in Syria. In total, hundreds of millions in US taxpayer funds have been spent on arming terrorists in Syria. This is no accident.

“The American government colluded with Israel in the treasonous cover-up of the attack on the USS LIBERTY and the survivors were ordered to remain silent under threat of court martial, imprisonment or worse. The U.S. government has never challenged the obviously phony Israeli excuse of ‘mistaken identity’ nor have they attempted to expose the dishonorable cover up that continues to date. Truth and America’s honor were ignominiously sacrificed to provide cover for Israel’s transparent lies and despicable act of perfidy.” – Petty Officer Phillip F.

His brother had been to Syria where he fought and died alongside the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS), and Abrini himself too appears to have been in Syria.

2016: THE YEAR THE AMERICANS FOUND OUT OUR ELECTIONS ARE RIGGED

The 2016 election has been a wild ride, with two insurgent grassroots campaigns literally giving the political establishment a run for its money. But as the events of this presidential primary season play out, it’s becoming clear the U.S. election — and even more so, the presidential race — is a big scam being perpetrated on the American people. Events from the last week have exposed the system as an illusion of choice and a farce. They have reinforced at least one study showing the U.S. is an oligarchy rather than a democratic republic. The Wyoming democratic caucus took place on Saturday, purportedly to allow voters to have their voices heard in the race between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Sanders lost the Wyoming caucus by winning it with a 12 percent margin. Wait, what?

German prosecutors file criminal complaint against comedian over defamation against President Erdo?an

Mainz state prosecutors filed a criminal complaint late on Monday against German comedian Jan Boehmermann, who recited an obscene poem about President Tayyip Recep Erdo?an during a satirical show on national broadcaster ZDF.

Turkey made a formal request that German authorities prosecute Boehmermann for insults against the president.

"The Turkish embassy, in connection with the ZDF broadcast 'Neo Magazin Royale,' sent a cable to the foreign ministry," said government spokesman Steffen Seibert on Monday during a regular news conference. "That is a formal request from the Turkish side for a prosecution in connection with comments made in this broadcast. The content of this cable and the way forward will now be carefully examined by the government. It will take a few days. I can't and don't want to anticipate the results of this examination."

World Bank May Be Spreading The Scourge That Fed Flint Water Crisis

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) is calling out the World Bank’s investment in global water resources, alleging conflicts of interest similar to those that removed Flint, Michigan, from managing its own water.

Moore, ranking member on the House Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee, on Tuesday condemned the World Bank’s funding and promotion of water privatization through “public private partnerships” arranged by its investment arm, the International Finance Corp., or IFC.

“I am increasingly uneasy with water resource privatization in developing countries and do not believe that the current ring-­fencing policies separating the investment and advising functions of the IFC are adequate,” Moore wrote in a letter to World Bank President Jim Yong Kim. Moore’s committee has jurisdiction over the World Bank.

The Panama Papers Have Made Radical Change Possible.

Journalists have been decoding 11.5 million documents leaked from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. The 2.6 terabytes of data show tens of billions of dollars worth of transactions dating back 40 years. 200,000 firms and 14,000 individuals are involved.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lobbied successfully for the Panama-United States Trade Promotion Agreement. She paved the way for major banks and corporations, most notably Deutsche Bank, to skirt national laws and regulations. After she resigned as Secretary of State, Deutsche Bank paid her $485,000 for a speech.

Bernie Sanders won 7 of the last 7 caucuses and primaries but still trails Hillary in delegates for the nomination. That is fair because she took money from Goldman Sachs, J P Morgan and Deutsche Bank which she gave to Democratic officials in the various state party organizations to buy delegates. Who cares about voters when you have campaign cash from known criminals?

Panama Papers reveal spies used Mossack Fonseca — including the CIA

Secret agents from several countries, including intermediaries of the CIA, have used the services of Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca in order to “conceal” their activities, German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported Tuesday.

“Secret agents and their informants have made wide use of the company’s services,” wrote the newspaper, which obtained a massive stash of 11.5 million documents from the company that is sending shockwaves around the globe.

“Agents have opened shell companies to conceal their activities… Among them are close intermediaries of the CIA,” the newspaper reported.

The Munich-based newspaper said Mossack Fonseca’s clients included “several players” in the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal, which saw senior US officials facilitate secret arms sales to Iran in a bid to secure the release of American hostages and fund Nicaragua’s Contra rebels.

LONDON FILM FESTIVAL PULLS FILM ABOUT LONG TERM SURVIVORS AFTER PHARMA-AIDS CHARITIES THREATEN PROTEST

London, UK. LIFF, the London Independent Film Festival (http://www.liff.org/), has controversially axed its screening of the film Positive Hell, scheduled for April 17, in a move described by the film’s writer and narrator, Joan Shenton, as “blatant censorship” and “the latest case of ‘no platforming'”.

This morning, Ms Shenton announced that she had been contacted by LIFF director, Erich Schultz, to say that he had “pulled” the film after four HIV/AIDS charities had threatened protests at the screening venue and at festival sponsors’ premises “if we [LIFF] don’t comply”. Schultz also said he had received “over twenty protest letters”.

The axing has some echoes of Robert De Niro’s decision to remove the anti-vaccinaton documentary Vaxxed from the Tribeca film festival in New York at the end of March (http://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/mar/27/robert-de-niro-pulls-vacci...), though there is no suggestion that the two films are in any way similar.

Trans-Atlantic and Trans-Pacific “Partnerships”: Complete Corporate World Takeover

As I have emphasized since these “partnerships” were first announced, their purpose is to give corporations immunity from the laws in the countries in which they do business. The principle mechanism of this immunity is the granting of the right to corporations to sue governments and agencies of governments that have laws or regulations that impinge on corporate profits. For example, France’s prohibitions of GMO foods are, under the “partnerships,” “restraints on trade that impinge on corporate profits.

Ten Revealing War Lies

On January 31, 2003, President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair met in the White House prior to a joint press conference. Bush proposed to Blair that one good way to get a war on Iraq started would be to fly U2 reconnaissance aircraft with fighter cover over Iraq, painted in UN colors, in hopes that Iraq would fire on them. This was one of a number of possible ways to get a war started that Bush proposed to Blair. Following the meeting, the two of them walked out to do a joint press conference, of which you can still watch the video.

Finger in Every Pie: How CIA Produces Our ‘News’ and Entertainment

Previously, we showed how the Hollywood hit ZeroDarkThirty was a completely fabricated piece of fiction which was passed on to the public as a “true story”. Also, the popular TV series, Homeland, is one of the most obvious propaganda productions in recent years, designed to reinforce many flawed assumptions and false believes about the world outside of the United States.

Did you know that the CIA has actually produced a number of high-profile ‘history’ TV programs that appear on US and world media channels?

Yes, it’s true…

ECB Scrambles To Calm A Furious Germany: "Helicopter Money Was The Straw That Broke The Camel's Back"

Spiegel even suggested that the German finance ministry would go so far as to sue the ECB to prevent this final monetary paradrop in a desperate attempt to stimulate (hyper)inflation:

Just Flasking Ridiculous!

By Jack Perry
April 12, 2016
Hey, did you know in Texas, it’s illegal to possess an Erlenmeyer flask without a permit from the government? What’s an Erlenmeyer flask? It’s that glass conical-bottom, narrow-necked flask you see in all the science labs. Remember high school science class? So why is a piece of science lab equipment illegal without das paperwerken from das government? Because it’s allegedly used to manufacture illegal drugs. Well, gosh, so are a lot of things! But this is a thing I have mentioned before here and now would like to expand on: Local government is often the most tyrannical because they can pass laws faster than the federal government can spend a billion dollars.
Webmaster addition: I use an Erlenmeyer flask to make nano-silver!

Hillary Clinton’s Backers Want Obama to Grant a Preemptive Pardon—To Prevent Her From Facing “A Martha Stewart Problem”

With FBI Director James Comey’s statement this week that the massive investigation of possible criminality by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could linger into the fall, some of her political advisers have become convinced that the best option for her would be to shut it down now, which could be accomplished ifPresident Obama would grant a preemptive pardon for any crimes she may have committed.

“It would be a humbling experience for Mrs. Clinton to accept a pardon, but she and husband Bill have ridden out terrible scandals in the past without losing their bedrock constituencies,” an official close to the campaign told Orbmagazine. “And without a pardon, the possible scenarios she is facing are fraught with danger.”

WELLS FARGO ADMITS DECEPTION IN $1.2 BILLION U.S. MORTGAGE ACCORD

Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N) admitted to deceiving the U.S. government into insuring thousands of risky mortgages, as it formally reached a record $1.2 billion settlement of a U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit. The settlement with Wells Fargo, the largest U.S. mortgage lender and third-largest U.S. bank by assets, was filed on Friday in Manhattan federal court. It also resolves claims against Kurt Lofrano, a former Wells Fargo vice president.

CAUGHT ON TAPE: U.S. PLANE ALLEGEDLY DROPS WEAPONS FOR ISIS MILITANTS IN IRAQ

One day after reporting that British military information services Janes, had found confirmation of several shipments amounting to 3,000 tons of weapons and ammo to Al-Qaeda linked Syrian rebels in a transport solicitation on the U.S. government website FedBizOps.gov, today Veterans Today goes deeper into the rabbit hole and reports that several Iraqi policemen claim to have seen US aircraft dropping weapons and munitions for ISIS terrorists in a region west of the Anbar province on Friday.

According to VT, in a video posted on Iraq’s al-Maaloomah news website on Sunday, the policemen are purportedly heard saying that the American plane had also jammed their communication devices in the Hadisah Island district.

"There is an American aircraft seen at four o’clock in the morning on Friday over the Hadisah Island district of the Anbar province, delivering weapons and munitions to ISIS criminals," one of the policemen says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would probably be asking the bookies in Vegas

1. What the odds were of a US military decap strike against Syria's Al-Assad, or

2. Further destabilization of Iraq to the point where Iraq's President al-Abadi would be begging for an unlimited number of US troops on the ground in Iraq to fend off ISIS, which of course, the US is continuing to fund, supply, and train.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against either, or both, scenarios.

However, if my hunch about Iraq is correct, I have to wonder; just how long will the Shiite cleric, Muqtada Al-Sadr allow this to continue before "bringing the band back together", i.e., reuniting the Mahdi Army against American military assets to drive the US government out of Iraq?!?

Secondly, if the US is planning a decap strike on Damascus, how long will it take Moscow to respond?!? And what will they be willing to do to protect Al-Assad?!?

IF these questions occur to me, as an average American citizen, I am absolutely gobsmacked that those making these kinds of bone-headed decisions in the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and Congress appear to be pathologically incapable of thinking these scenarios through to their logical conclusions.

COMMON CORE, K-12 SCHOOLING, & HOW TO TURN CHILDREN INTO REAL ESTATE

I recently spoke with Robin S. Eubanks, whose blog Invisible Serfs Collar is a massive data dump exploring the long-term social engineering goals behind the Common Core State Standards Initiative currently pushing K-12 schooling in the US. Eubanks links Common Core to the National Science Foundation and to behavioral sciences & social psychology research that goes back at least to the 1930s and the Fabian Society, the Ford Foundation, the London School of Economics, the Tavistock Institute, and the Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Science. According to Eubanks, the education/indoctrination plan she is mapping has to do with removing “the transmission of knowledge” from the education process entirely & instead “incepting” emotional imagery into the unconscious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core is an absolute disaster, because critical thinking is denied, and logic, and intelligent questioning, is suppressed.

If Mike and I had children, I would make sure that we lived in a state where home schooling was allowed, because I completely doubt the ability of public schools to turn kids into anything else but sniveling, compliant drones, just educated enough for whatever jobs were left in this country, and never questioning public policy in any depth.

'I was struck with multiple blows': inside the secret violence of Homan Square

Internal documents from the Chicago police department show that officers used physical force on at least 14 men already in custody at the warehouse known as Homan Square.

Police used punches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, slaps, wrist twists, baton blows and Tasers at Homan Square, according to documents released to the Guardian in the course of its transparency lawsuit about the warehouse. The new information contradicts an official denial about treatment of prisoners at the facility.

The injured men are among at least 7,351 people – more than 6,000 of them black – who, police documents show, have been detained and interrogated at Homan Square without a public notice of their whereabouts or access to an attorney.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a police culture in this country of using torture as a standard method of operation, then lying about it with absolute impunity.

Torture is a war crime, and should be treated as such; the lying about torture should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

This cannot be allowed to continue, without the nature of the American dream being turned into a permanent American nightmare.

WELLS FARGO JUST ADMITTED TO ROBBING US CITIZENS BY DECEIVING THE GOVT AND NO ONE WAS CHARGED

Top megabank, Wells Fargo & Co just admitted to defrauding the United States government for nearly an entire decade, which subsequently led to the housing market collapse, and no one is going to be punished.

On Friday, the largest US mortgage lender and third-largest US bank admitted to deceiving the U.S. government into insuring thousands of risky mortgages.

According to the settlement, Wells Fargo “admits, acknowledges, and accepts responsibility” for having from 2001 to 2008 falsely certified that many of its home loans qualified for Federal Housing Administration insurance, reports Reuters.

Wells Fargo also admitted to having from 2002 to 2010 failed to file timely reports on several thousand loans that had material defects or were badly underwritten, a process that Kurt Lofrano, a former Wells Fargo vice president, was responsible for supervising.

Obama Defends Hillary In Email Scandal: "There's Classified And There's Classified"

So there we have it. As far as national security concerns around Hillary's unsecured communications, don't be alarmed because there's classified, and then there's classified. As far as whether or not justice will be served if it is determined that Hillary broke the law, everyone can also rest assured that the outcome of the FBI’s investigation will be solely based on evidence, and nothing more – just as the process is supposed to work.

At this juncture, we're still trying to wrap our minds around what the difference between classified and classified is, but it's something Edward Snowden certainly wishes he knew about.

The man in charge of probing the Panama tax dodging scandal was a partner at the law firm that acted for offshore firms... including the one set up by David Cameron's father

The man in charge of overseeing the UK Government's inquiry into the Panama Papers was a partner at a law firm that acted for the offshore fund set up by David Cameron's stockbroker father, it emerged this morning.

Edward Troup, executive chairman of HMRC, was a partner at Simmons & Simmons, which represented Ian Cameron's Blairmore Holdings and other offshore firms named in the leak.

HMRC has been given a lead role in the £10million taskforce launched to investigate allegations of wrongdoing highlighted in the 11.5million documents leaked from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.

Indiana State Trooper Is Fired for Proselytizing During Traffic Stops

An Indiana state trooper has been fired after drivers complained that he gave them more than tickets and a lecture about road rules after pulling them over — he also shared a little religion on the roadside, in one case asking a woman if she had “accepted Jesus Christ as her savior.”
The State Police said on Friday that the trooper, Brian L. Hamilton, a 14-year veteran, was let go on Thursday for repeatedly proselytizing and for handing out a religious pamphlet during traffic stops.

The State Police superintendent, Douglas G. Carter, said in a statement, “While I respect Mr. Hamilton’s religious views, I am also charged to respect every citizen’s rights, and the best way forward for the citizens of Indiana, and for Mr. Hamilton, was to end his employment as a state police officer.”

In order to retain the UK in the EU, it will grant a seven-year holiday on full access to in-work benefits by newly-arrived migrants. In his White Paper, Mister Cameron presents this “emergency brake” as a major concession that he has achieved with the EU.

Methods [4.3]

From the outset the populists, and the progressives after them, already “alert” (as Eisenhower puts it) from the early 1870s due to the increasingly dire economic consequences for most Americans of the concentration and extension of oligarchic power, realized that in order to become “knowledgeable” and to awaken the “citizenry” at large for common action in support of effective legislative remedies, they would need to inform and educate themselves. The manipulation of the newspapers and other organs of “public” discussion by vested interests made this obvious from the start, partly because until the 1890s there was still a flourishing regional and small town journalism voicing a wide variety of local views and ready to expose salient facts concealed or distorted in the “kept press.”

US-NATO Plans for a New War in Libya

Five years after NATO’s Libya war, Italy, the EU and the US are in the advanced stages of preparations for the next military intervention. The Western imperialist powers want to establish their own military bases in Libya in order to control the country’s massive sources of oil and natural gas, and secure an important gateway to Africa.

For months, the North African country has seen a secret build-up of American, British, French and Italian agents and officers, while reconnaissance and armed drones controlled from Sigonella in Sicily have conducted surveillance missions and air strikes in Libya.

US Largest Maritime Exercise in Middle East, Mobilizing 5th Fleet against “Al Qaeda and Daesh”

The United States Navy is leading the largest maritime exercise in the Middle East with 30 countries participating in the event.
The International Mine Countermeasures Exercise (IMCMEX) aims to protect international trade routes against possible threats posed by terrorist groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda, according to US officials.

According to Press TV, the exercise was organized by US Naval Forces Central Command and began Monday in Bahrain, home to the US 5th Fleet.

On Saturday, commander of US Naval Forces Central Command Vice Adm. Kevin Donegan highlighted the importance of the exercise in protecting shipping routes, saying, “We know that they want to disturb trade lines”.

“This region provides a strong training opportunity for nations worldwide as three of the six major maritime chokepoints in the world are here: the Suez Canal, the Strait of Bab Al Mandeb and the Strait of Hormuz,” Donegan said.

Despite pressure from some Bernie Sanders supporters, NH Governor Maggie Hassan, a superdelegate, said she will still support Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer.

While Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic primary with 60 percent of the vote, he could score fewer delegates here than Clinton, who has the backing of at least six of the eight Granite State superdelegates.

“I continue to support Hillary Clinton because I think she is the best prepared person with the best record of actually achieving results that have made a real difference in the lives of people throughout our country,” she said, adding that the heated primary won’t divide the party. “I am also quite confident the Democratic Party will be unified in the fall.”

We had only spoken to a couple dozen people, but it really felt like we had a good taste of the two Americas. One group is annoying and bases all their opinions on their feelings. The other is much more fun and knows what they’re talking about.

NH House Becomes First in US to Pass Bill to Inform Jurors of Right to Deem Government Unjust

When government demands allegiance to the idea that its actions are always just, it’s refreshing to see some lawmakers remind us that we can, in fact, deem government to be wrong...

Why VAXXED Was Shot Down At Tribeca — Up Close And Personal

Now, moving along: Jane Rosenthal’s husband, Craig Hatkoff, sits on the board of the NYU Child Study Center in New York—and that major, major Center is deeply involved in the research, study, and treatment of child psychiatric disorders. In case you’ve forgotten, autism is officially listed as a psychiatric disorder.

The NYU Center would never, ever, in a million years imagine that vaccines could cause autism. If they did imagine it, they’d shut up and march straight ahead with their brain imaging studies and other mainstream distractions.

Exclusive: Blocking Trump could hurt Republicans in election - Reuters/Ipsos poll

Without Trump at the head of the ticket the Repubs will go the way of the Whig Party. BYE!BYE! Repubs! Don't let the door hit you in the ass when you leave America!

A third of Republican voters who support Donald Trump could turn their backs on their party in November's presidential election if he is denied the nomination in a contested convention, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The results are bad news for Trump's rivals as well as party elites opposed to the real estate billionaire, suggesting that an alternative Republican nominee for the Nov. 8 presidential race would have a tougher road against the Democrats.

"If it’s a close election, this is devastating news" for the Republicans, said Donald Green, an expert on election turnout at Columbia University.

The Beginning Of The End For Obamacare: Largest US Health Insurer Exits Georgia, Arkanasas

In a statement, UnitedHealth said that "the company is evaluating the viability of the insurance exchange product segment and will determine during the first half of 2016 to what extent it can continue to serve the public exchange markets in 2017."

Needless to say, the implications for Obamacare - which had seen a surge in problems over the past year - were dire: As Bloomberg reported at the time, "a pull-back would deal a significant blow to President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies since new government-run marketplaces for the plans opened in late 2013, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling."

60 MINUTES TO REPORT ON 28 PAGES SAID TO LINK 9/11, SAUDI ARABIA

The drive to declassify 28 pages from a congressional intelligence inquiry that detail specific indications of foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers is about to be put under a powerful spotlight, as 60 Minutes will air a segment on the topic this Sunday, April 10 at 7 pm ET/PT.

According to the CBS News preview of the story, Steve Kroft interviewed former senator Bob Graham, former congressman and CIA director Porter Goss, former 9/11 Commission members Bob Kerrey and John Lehman, lawyers representing 9/11 family members suing Saudi Arabia and former congressman Tim Roemer, who served on both the inquiry that produced the 28 pages and the 9/11 Commission that followed that inquiry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, that "historical revisionist TV show" 60 minutes!!

The same show that allowed Bill and Hillary Clinton make a "non denial-denial" about Bill's having had an affair with Gennifer Flowers!!

"60 Minutes", as a concept, is rarely ever about telling the American people the truth; it is about spinning a narrative comfortable to the elites, and this coming show on alleged Saudi financing of 9/11 is absolutely no different.

The "agenda" here is to blame the Saudi government for the rise of ISIS and Al-Qaeda, rather than looking at the cold, hard, and highly uncomfortable facts behind their growth.

Did the Saudis perhaps do some funding of Jihadists?!?

Perhaps.

But this is not the main reason why these groups exist today; they exist because it is the US government trained these people.

As reported by the blog globalresearch.ca, on 19 September, 2014:

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region. The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history. The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union. The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.” During the 1970′s the CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a barrier, both to thwart Soviet expansion and prevent the spread of Marxist ideology among the Arab masses. The United States also openly supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia, and supported the Jamaat-e-Islami terror group against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least, there is Al Qaeda. Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980′s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan. America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair. Depending on whether a particular Al Qaeda terrorist group in a given region furthers American interests or not, the U.S. State Department either funds or aggressively targets that terrorist group. Even as American foreign policy makers claim to oppose Muslim extremism, they knowingly foment it as a weapon of foreign policy. The Islamic State is its latest weapon that, much like Al Qaeda, is certainly backfiring. ISIS recently rose to international prominence after its thugs began beheading American journalists. Now the terrorist group controls an area the size of the United Kingdom. In order to understand why the Islamic State has grown and flourished so quickly, one has to take a look at the organization’s American-backed roots. The 2003 American invasion and occupation of Iraq created the pre-conditions for radical Sunni groups, like ISIS, to take root. America, rather unwisely, destroyed Saddam Hussein’s secular state machinery and replaced it with a predominantly Shiite administration. The U.S. occupation caused vast unemployment in Sunni areas, by rejecting socialism and closing down factories in the naive hope that the magical hand of the free market would create jobs. Under the new U.S.-backed Shiite regime, working class Sunni’s lost hundreds of thousands of jobs. Unlike the white Afrikaners in South Africa, who were allowed to keep their wealth after regime change, upper class Sunni’s were systematically dispossessed of their assets and lost their political influence. Rather than promoting religious integration and unity, American policy in Iraq exacerbated sectarian divisions and created a fertile breading ground for Sunni discontent, from which Al Qaeda in Iraq took root.

So folks, there you have it; on the eve of President Obama's trip to Saudi Arabia, this show will attempt to pawn off all responsibility for the rise of Al Qaeda and ISIS on the shoulders of the Saudi government, rather than tell the truth about the US's involvement in the creation of violent jihadist groups, to be used to further the US government's geopolitical agenda.

The Real Reason American Cities Have Lead in the Water Supply: “Humans Have Been Written Off”

In short, society is collapsing, and they don’t care about us anymore.

Cincinnati city officials sent out letters to 16,000 residents this week, informing them that much of the city’s water transporting pipes are still made of lead... contradictorily admitting the pipes are problematic, while assuring residents that it’s safe because they have a “successful lead corrosion control program.”

Translation: You are receive long-term cumulative damage to your body, but we'll all be retired by the time you can prove it...

Dutch Referendum May Have Unleashed European "Continental Crisis"

The reason why Jean-Claude "when it gets serious, you have to lie" Juncker was so nervous, is that the vote, launched by anti-EU forces, is seen as test of the strength of Eurosceptics on the continent just three months before Britain votes on whether to stay in the European Union.

Fast forward to today when the vote just took place, and based on initial exit polls, Juncker was dead wrong. According to Reuters, in a rebuke for the government, which campaigned in favor of the EU-Ukraine association agreement, roughly 64 percent voted "No" and 36 percent said "Yes".

BBC Bias, Brexit, the EU, Bilderberg and Global Government

One of the BBC’s flagship news programmes has shown a “strong” bias towards Britain staying in the European Union (EU), a media monitoring group claimed last week. From the 13th of January to the 11th of March 2016, News-watch analysed 40 editions of the popular current affairs programme Newsnight. News-watch noted that 25 of the guests who appeared on the programme were in favour of Britain staying in the EU, compared to only 14 who advocated the UK leaving the union. The monitoring group noted that: “The former President of the EU Commission, José Manuel Barroso, and the former Swedish Prime Minister, Carl Bildt, have had the clear opportunity in main interviews to explain why leaving the EU would not be in the UK’s interest. There has been no balancing opinion from similarly weighty figures” who support Britain leaving the EU.

Indiana state trooper fired after asking about religion during traffic stop

INDIANAPOLIS — A 14-year-veteran of the Indiana State Police was fired Thursday for allegedly proselytizing to people he stopped for traffic violations.

The ACLU of Indiana filed a lawsuit this week against ISP Trooper Brian Hamilton on behalf of Wendy Pyle. The lawsuit claims Hamilton gave Pyle a warning ticket for speeding, then asked her what church she attended and whether she was saved.

She says she did not feel free to leave while the questions were being asked. She filed a formal complaint about the stop. Hamilton has been sued for similar claims before. In Oct. 2014, he was accused of prolonging a traffic stop by asking a woman about her faith, then handing her a pamphlet about how to become a Christian. The civil case was closed in April 2015.

The Panama Papers Could Really End Hillary Clinton’s Campaign

The Sanders campaign has been run on the premise that Clinton is inextricably linked to political corruption, disastrous military interventions, and collusion with Wall Street. If it can be shown that Clinton was involved in criminal improprieties exposed by the Panama Papers, this will constitute yet another major line of attack for Sanders headed into the April 14th debate in New York. If Sanders wins the New York primary a few days later and scoops up a proportion of its 247 delegates, the narrative of the election will dramatically shift.
