David Petraeus Prosecutor on Hillary’s Tail

One of the federal prosecutors who helped bring down former general David Petraeus is now leading the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email use.

Of the two prosecutors in the Department of Justice’s National Security Division tasked with investigating Clinton’s emails, one of them worked on the Petraeus case, according to the Washington Post. Petraeus, pled guilty to giving his biographer and mistress classified information.

Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, has turned over thumb drives containing Clinton’s emails from her tenure as Secretary of State. The thumb drives are now in the possession of the Department of Justice, which is just one part of an inter-agency government task force, including the FBI, that is investigating Clinton’s emails.

US Savagery Visited Upon Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Now Visits Bangkok

The bombing is the latest in a string of attacks carried out by US-backed, ousted dictator Thaksin Shinawatra and his violent political front, United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) or simply the "red shirts." In addition to violent street mobs, Shinawatra has augmented his front with heavily armed militants and terrorists who made their debut in 2010 when 300 of them confronted Royal Thai Army soldiers in the streets of Bangkok, leading to weeks of armed clashes that ended nearly 100 lives and injured hundreds more.

The US prepares to punish another people for daring to kick out their US puppet ruler!

FBI Evidence Proves Marathon Bomber’s Innocence

From Dr Robert’s article:

“I have been contacted by attorney John Remington Graham, a member in good standing of the bar of the Minnesota Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court. He informs me that acting in behalf of Maret Tsanaeva, the aunt of the accused Tsamaev brothers and a citizen of the Kyrgyz Republic where she is qualified to practice law, he has assisted her in filing with the US District Court in Boston a pro se motion, including an argument of amicus curiae, and an affidavit of Maret Tsarnaeva. The presiding judge has ordered that these documents be included in the formal record of the case so they will be publicly accessible….”

The documents argue (from the evidence provided by the FBI) that there is no basis for the indictment of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The FBI’s evidence clearly concludes that the bomb was in a black knapsack – whereas Dzhokhar’s was a white knapsack.

Straight shooting from the UK

The Bow Group, ‘the United Kingdom’s oldest conservative think tank’, is as ‘Establishment’ an institution as one could hope to find. Its board includes prominent former Conservative cabinet ministers such as Norman Tebbit and Geoffrey Howe as well as right-wing academics like philosopher Roger Scruton. I was intrigued, therefore, to hear its chairman, Ben Harris-Quinney, announce last week that, ‘the theory of neo-liberal interventionism is bankrupt.’

The context of Harris-Quinney’s remarks was the publication of a new Bow Group report entitled ‘The Sanctions on Russia’.

The Labour Party Turns on the Israel Lobby

It would be fair to say the massacre of around 100 Palestinian villagers by Jewish Stern Gang and Irgun terrorists in the village of Deir Yassin nearly 70 years ago is not well remembered today.
Like many of the horrific events surrounding the creation of the state of Israel, the massacre on April 9, 1948 has been quietly dropped down the memory hole. It was a horrific tale of British betrayal and Jewish ruthlessness, and is still too embarrassing for both Jewish elites and the British government.

In contentious exchange, Clinton insists anything she did with email server was 'legally permitted'

In a contentious exchange with reporters after a Las Vegas Town Hall event Tuesday, Hillary Clinton insisted anything she did with her email server was "legally permitted" and said the media were the only ones asking about it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


P.S. Hanging traitors who give American weapons to Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria while we are in a state of war on terrorists is also legally allowed!

Fogle to plead guilty to sex acts with minors, child porn

Longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex acts with minors and received child pornography that he knew had been secretly produced by the former director of his charitable foundation, federal prosecutors said in court documents released Wednesday.

Paid Hasbara Brigade Busted On Reddit

Lenora Avraham is a ‘Casbara’ – that’s a captain of a hasbarat brigade. Casbara is Lenora’s rank. ‘Casbara’ has just been coined by yours truly so as to distinguish between the ziobot zombies: hasbarats, and their deranged cell leaders ‘Casbarats’. Well, we often talk about the vile hasbarats – and here now is our chance to look into the viler Casbarats.

The father of one of the Chapel Hill shooting victims is fulfilling his son's dream of providing free dental care to Syrian refugees with more than $1 million in donations and 50 volunteers.

Students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Dentistry went back to classes Monday.
But those classes are missing two pupils — two of the Chapel Hill shooting victims. On Monday, Deah Barakat would have started his third year at the school, and his wife Yusor would have started her first.
Namee Barakat says his son loved to make people smile — either with a joke or by helping someone less fortunate. And it was that passion that drove his wife and him to use their dentistry skills.

James Boyd: New Mexico officers to stand trial for murder in homeless man's death

Prosecutors filed murder charges against the two officers in the killing of 38-year-old James Boyd, who authorities say had schizophrenia. He was shot during an hours-long standoff in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, where police accused him of camping illegally. He died at a hospital after his arm was amputated. Seven police officers around the country have faced murder charges for on-duty incidents since 2010. One was convicted of manslaughter and assault after a second-degree murder count was dropped. The rest are still in court proceedings.

Who Wins in a Currency Devaluation War?

The paradox in the question of who wins in a currency war presupposes that any participating combatant can actually claim victory. If winning means ending up with the most cash, when the value of the money as a store of tangible wealth is debased, it is doubtful anyone can be declared the victor. The absurdity of lowering the purchasing power of a countries currency to enable exports to be more competitive is economic sacrilege that the heretical “Free Trade” mythos is based upon. Without a reliable standard of objective comparison, floating currencies maneuver their exchange rates to disguise internal imbalances in their own political and economic expenditures.

I look forward to his progressive presidency. The American people will finally be granted collective rights by the government — everything done for the common good, as defined by Bernie and the liberal elites. Bernie will finally get rid of that pesky centuries old Constitution and Bill of Rights. Who needs individual, unalienable rights like freedom of the press, the right to bear arms and trial by jury when progressive government central planners will take care of your every need?

Changing How You Think of Resistance to Tyranny

There are many facets of your life that while you can’t change everything, you can make small meaningful changes that put you back in control. Some of these changes are simple while others are more involved, but each is its own form of resistance to what you are being told is good and right.

Moms Demand Action: FAIL on Simple Math, Which Is Greater – 500 or 760,000?

Like all murders, each of these 500 a year is tragic. But this number literally pales in comparison to the number of lives saved through the use of guns in self-defense each year. In February 2015, approximately 22 years after beginning scholarly work on defensive gun uses each year, Florida State criminologist Gary Kleck confirmed that 760,000 defensive gun uses a year is the number no one has been able to refute.

This December, Agenda 21 is Getting an “Update”

By Rusticus

From November 30th to December 11th of 2015, a consortium of world “leaders” from 190 countries will gather in Paris, France as part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The occasion? The much maligned Neomalthusian “environmental” program, known as “Agenda 21” by its original visionaries as well as its opponents, will be of drinking age, its “sustainable” protocols having been officially adopted in 1994.

So, too, is this UN Convention in Paris a celebration of the Kyoto Protocol’s numerological accomplishments, as COP21/CPM11 marks the 11th year of the emission regulation’s force as “International Law” (as of 2004).

The purpose of these festivities, however, is hardly mere ceremony; as Agenda 21 comes of age, the burdens it places upon those living beneath its yoke are also maturing...

32 COPS, FIRED 600 BULLETS INTO 1 CAR FULL OF HOSTAGES, KILLING A HOSTAGE

Discharging a firearm in circumstances that endanger innocent persons or hostages, is prohibited by police departments. So why on Earth would 32 cops chase down a car full of hostages, fire into that car killing a hostage, and even fire directly over their colleagues in the process? The answer to that question, according to a detailed report released Monday by the Police Foundation, is because of a “lack of planning.”

Economists Brace for September: “Building Up to Catastrophe of Historic Proportions”

An outright panic has taken hold over many who see September 2015 as a convergence of ominous events. RT profiled several who are bracing for next month’s signposts of doom:

Doug Casey, [head of Casey Research said] “With these stupid governments printing trillions and trillions of new currency units,” Casey, describing the US Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing program, “it’s building up to a catastrophe of historic proportions.”

Watergate journalist compares Hillary Clinton's emails to Nixon's tapes

Watergate journalist Bob Woodward thinks Hillary Clinton's private email account controversy shares some similarities with Richard Nixon's infamous Watergate scandal. Woodward, who was one of the Washington Post reporters who helped break the story that eventually led to President Nixon's resignation, compared Clinton's emails to the Nixon tapes in an interview Monday, as Nixon thought that the tapes he kept documenting conversations were "exclusively his."

US Military Prepares Drastic Escalation of Global Drone Program

Citing exclusive interviews with senior U.S. officials, the WSJ's Gordon Lubold reports that the number of daily flights by aircraft such as MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper drones will surge an estimated 50 percent. Further, the expanded drone program will "draw on the Army, as well as Special Operations Command and government contractors," in addition to the U.S. Air Force, which currently carries out most of the operations for the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency.

Lobuld reports: "The Pentagon envisions a combined effort that by 2019 would have the Air Force continue flying 60 drone flights a day, the Army contributing as many as 16 and the military’s Special Forces Command pitching in with as many as four. Government contractors would be hired to fly older Predator drones on as many as 10 flights a day, none of them strike missions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; how much of this increase in drones will be domestic, as well as international?

And how far a stretch is it for this President to have his legal eagles determine that extrajudicial assassinations in this country are just as legal as they are overseas?!?

Unfortunately, in light of the fact that Obama has already decided he is capable of being judge, jury, and (proxy) executioner, not much.

COST OF EPA’S TOXIC SPILL COULD SOAR TO NEARLY $30 BILLION

The cost of cleaning up a major toxic waste spill in the West caused by an Environmental Protection Agency contractor could soar as high as $27.7 billion. That’s the conclusion of study released Tuesday morning by the right-leaning American Action Forum. The group is one of the first to attempt to estimate the clean-up cost of what will likely be remembered as one of the biggest environmental disasters of 2015.

Thailand thunders: New blast in Bangkok centre

One more explosion has taken place in the Thai city of Bangkok.
According to the local police, there was an explosive low-power device.
This time there are no reports of victims, as an unidentified man who noticed the device, managed to throw it in the canal from the bridge in the city centre.
"If it did not fall in the water then it certainly would have caused injuries," Colonel Natakit Siriwongtawan, deputy police chief of Klongsan district said.
Pravda.Ru reported, that the Muang Thai Marathon should take place in Bangkok August, 23. Now, the marathon is under the threat of failure because of a string of blasts during the last two days.

All Is Not Well In Hillaryland

Things are getting weird when even Al Gore is thinking of getting into the Democratic presidential race, which is turning into a last hurrah for the Baby Boomers and their tad-older camp counselors.

Hillary Clinton, permanently punctilious, has done everything right: She put her HQ in Brooklyn, hired savvy digital/social/big data nerds, raised a ton of dough, gave substantive, well-thought-out speeches and flooded early primary and caucus states with organizers. She's still the default bet for the Democratic nomination: national polls show her with a fat 36 percent lead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is absolutely no different than the woman who so resolutely "cleaned up" after her philandering husband, making sure that the women with whom he slept were as utterly destroyed as she could possibly make them.

For her, the rules do not exist; they're only for "the little people", not for someone of her wealth and stature. And the Emailgate scandal is more of a symptom than the problem itself, which is a completely sociopathic personality. She can take no responsibility for anything wrong she has ever done, including the debacle which was Benghazi.

The truth of the business is, she is just as bought as any other politician by the major corporations which fund her covertly and overtly.

At the end of the day, you utterly cannot trust her at all; she has the morals of a trout.

And yes, I would love for a woman to become president, and soon; just, please Heaven, not THIS woman.

Carson’s claim that Planned Parenthood targets blacks to ‘control that population’: Four Pinocchios.

“Well, maybe I’m not objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood. But you know, I know who Margaret Sanger is, and I know that she believed in eugenics, and that she was not particularly enamored with black people. And one of the reasons that you find most of their clinics in black neighborhoods is so that you can find way to control that population. And I think people should go back and read about Margaret Sanger, who founded this place — a woman who Hillary Clinton by the way says she admires. Look and see what many people in Nazi Germany thought about her.”

One-Quarter Of Mothers Return To Work Less Than 2 Weeks After Giving Birth, Report Finds

While high-end firms that employ the most well-educated and well-paid U.S. workers compete in a benefits arms race, too many working women are forced to skimp or skip out on maternity leave because of the United States’ lack of paid leave policy, a new analysis of data from the Department of Labor makes clear.

Nearly 1 in 4 new mothers surveyed by the department in 2012 were back at work within just two weeks of having a new baby, according to an analysis conducted by researchers at Abt Associates for an investigative feature in In These Times, published Tuesday morning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that one of the greatest measures of how well a society is really working is how it treats new moms and their infants.

But having to go back to work after only two weeks off is wrong for both moms and their newborns up in ways I cannot begin to articulate.

Scandinavian and European countries leave the US in the dust in the way they structure their maternity leave programs; I think we need to learn something from them on this issue.

Israel-West Bank 'Separation Barrier' Project Continues Despite Court Ruling To Halt Construction

BELLA CIAO JULIAN BOND

This weekend the world lost one of the greatest heroes of our time, Julian Bond. In an obituary that appeared in the New York Times yesterday it was reported that ‘Julian Bond’s great-grandmother Jane Bond was the slave mistress of a Kentucky farmer.’ Twitter was overloaded with comments yesterday that he wasn’t a farmer but a slave master, and there is no such thing as a slave mistress. Being a mistress is voluntary, she was a raped slave. Interesting that a writer at the Times didn’t use language properly, and great that so many people spotted it. Also interesting that there was no correction for this at the Times.

CHICAGO, LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE BEEN USING 'STINGRAYS ON STEROIDS' FOR OVER A DECADE

More evidence has surfaced showing local law enforcement agencies are using high-powered surveillance equipment -- equipment originally designed for the military and highly-recommended by the NSA. Ali Winston and the Center for Investigative Reporting have obtained documents showing both Chicago and Los Angeles have used "dirt boxes"(DRT -- Digital Receiver Technology "boxes:" high-powered cell site simulators) since 2005.

In Chicago, the Digital Receiver Technology equipment was purchased in 2005 with funds collected in asset forfeiture cases. In Los Angeles, the police department purchased a package of Digital Receiver Technology equipment with $260,000 in homeland security grant funding. The sole-source purchase was approved unanimously by the Los Angeles City Council in 2005. Both departments also use StingRays, a more commonly known cell-site simulator manufactured by the Florida-based Harris Corp.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, police departments can now surveille to their hearts' content; but does this technology make the citizens living in LA or Chicago actually more safe?!?

I would tend to doubt that completely.

23 NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD WHERE STOCK MARKET CRASHES ARE ALREADY HAPPENING

You can stop waiting for a global financial crisis to happen. The truth is that one is happening right now. All over the world, stock markets are already crashing. Most of these stock market crashes are occurring in nations that are known as “emerging markets”. In recent years, developing countries in Asia, South America and Africa loaded up on lots of cheap loans that were denominated in U.S. dollars. But now that the U.S. dollar has been surging, those borrowers are finding that it takes much more of their own local currencies to service those loans. At the same time, prices are crashing for many of the commodities that those countries export. The exact same kind of double whammy caused the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s and the Asian financial crisis of the 1990s.

IF VACCINES ARE SAFE, WHY HAS THE US GOV. PAID OUT $3 BILLION TO VACCINE-INJURED FAMILIES?

Vaccines are a very imperfect science, despite the good intentions of healthcare providers and parents seeking to protect their children from disease. Adverse, life-changing and deadly effects of vaccines are more common than ever. In fact, the US government has had to pay out over $3 billion to vaccine-injured families since 1986. Still think vaccines are safe?

The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) lists several negative outcomes of vaccines. Many of these side effects are worse than the diseases these vaccines are for! VAERS reports that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is “linked to febrile seizures, which are a type of seizure that occurs in infants and young children in association with fever.” While these seizures hold no long-term consequences, they can be a frightening experience.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not a rabid "antivaxxer"; when Mike had his bout with pneumonia last year, I did have the pneumovax vaccine, which doesn't prevent you from catching pneumonia, but does keep it from killing you.

But all the vaccines mandated for kids before they ever see the inside of a classroom in kindergarten at age 5: YIKES!!

A very smart mom locally made sure her kids were vaccinated, but never with combinations of vaccines, which have never been tested as to adverse reactions from the combinations of vaccines into one shot.

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About

When the US embarks on perennial quantitative easing, that’s OK. When the EU does QE as well, that’s OK. But when the Bank of China decides it’s in the best interest of the nation to let the yuan go down a bit instead of infinitely up, that’s Armageddon.

An internationalized yuan established as a global reserve currency implies a "market-determined" exchange rate policy.

It took the Bank of China to devaluate the yuan on two consecutive days — moving within the 2 percent band that it’s allowed to — for the proverbial global financial banshees to go completely bonkers.

Forget the hysteria. The heart of the matter is that Beijing has stepped on the gas in a quite complex long game; to liberalize the yuan exchange rate; allow it to free float against the US dollar; and establish the yuan as a global reserve currency.

The Social Costs of Capitalism

The public subsidies provided to miners, loggers, and ranchers are as extravagant and as harmful to the public interest as the subsidies that the Federal Reserve and Treasury provide to the "banks too big to fail."

Few, if any, corporations absorb the full cost of their operations. Corporations shove many of their costs onto the environment, the public sector, and distant third parties.

Economists call these costs “external costs” or “social costs.” The mine made its profits by creating pollutants, the cost of which is borne by those who had no share in the profits.

British petition calls for Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes

Given the large scale of support and attention, the U.K. government may be forced to publicly respond in the near future.
