Dictatorship at Work: Homeland Security Detains Stockton Mayor, Forces Him To Hand Over His Passwords

Anthony Silva, the mayor of Stockton, California, recently went to China for a mayor's conference. On his return to San Francisco airport he was detained by Homeland Security, and then had his two laptops and his mobile phone confiscated. They refused to show him any sort of warrant (of course) and then refused to let him leave until he agreed to hand over his password

Mass protests are taking place in Manchester as the ruling Conservatives get ready to hold their party conference. People are demonstrating about a number of issues, ranging from PM David Cameron’s austerity measures to his plans to bomb Syria. Amongst the protesters’ main gripes has been austerity measures introduced by the Tory Party, which has seen cuts in public services and a fall in living standards.

Alabama Makes Photo IDs Mandatory for Voting, Then Shutters DMV Offices in Black Counties

Some observers say that Alabama’s move to close dozens of drivers license offices is a discriminatory move that could trigger a civil rights probe.

Here’s why: in 2011 lawmakers approved a voter ID law requiring a government-issued ID to vote, and the 31 offices the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency set for closing—which the agency said was due to the $11 million cut in the new General Fund appropriation—will take a disproportionate hit on counties that are majority African-American.

Columnist John Archibald writes that “Alabama just took a giant step backward.”

“Every single county in which blacks make up more than 75 percent of registered voters will see their driver license office closed. Every one,” he continues, writing that the state “might as well just send an invitation to the Justice Department.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

To the government of the State of Alabama: do all of you, collectively, need a cerebrectomy to realize just how completely, vilely stupidly, unjust, and immoral this was?!?

Jews and Gun Control: A Reprise

The thorny issue of Jewish support for gun control has reared its head once more, this time in Washington State. The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle has called for the resignation of Brian Judy, a National Rifle Association lobbyist who reportedly linked gun control to that untouchable icon of Jewish victimhood, the Holocaust. At a news conference at the Federation’s Seattle headquarters, President Keith Dvorchik said Judy should resign for connecting an anti-gun ballot initiative to policies pursued by Nazi Germany. Dvorchik further demanded the national office of the NRA “make clear that it rejects his ignorant and unproductive dialogue.”

Craig McKee explains logistics of mailing out AE911 Truth's booklet "Beyond Misinformation" to 20,000 specially selected recipients including NIST engineers

AE911Truth operations manager Andy Steele and volunteers Josh Ewing and Chris Kendall, who were responsible for building the distribution list for the mailing, had to be really creative as they went about finding contact information for the most influential people in government, media, academia, and professional associations and firms.

"These are the opinion makers and the news makers in their fields," Steele points out. "Now they can no longer claim ignorance of the evidence or turn a blind eye to the crime of the century, which is a cover-up of the fact that three buildings were brought down in controlled demolitions that day."

A particular challenge for Steele et al. was getting the booklet to the individuals who worked on the 9/11 official reports published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Proxy Wars: U.S. to arm Kurdish and Arab fighters in Syria

President Obama has decided not to directly confront Russia over its new air offensive in Syria, believing that President Vladi­mir Putin will soon find himself in a Syrian “quagmire,” but he has approved a new escalation of U.S. efforts against the Islamic State. Obama laid out the U.S. response to Russia’s actions during a meeting with senior aides Thursday evening. Details were firmed up in a meeting Friday morning among national security principals at the White House, senior administration officials said.

The Iraqi Prime Minister has sent a request to Moscow for the Russian air strikes on positions videoconferencing IG in Iraq

Note: Title and excerpt are Google translations

"As reported to Pravda.Ru, the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov yesterday told reporters on the results of air strikes on the positions of the terrorist organization "Islamic State" (banned in Russia). The briefing was held at the National Center for Control of Defense.

According to him, three days of air strikes failed to significantly reduce the combat potential of the IG terrorists in Syria. Destroyed more than 50 categories of objects, about 600 mercenaries left their positions and trying to get to Europe. In the ranks of the militants started to panic and mass desertion.

In addition, the competent authorities in the province of Deraa in southern Syria counted 700 wanted criminals and militants who have laid down their arms and surrendered to the authorities in recent days, according to RIA Novosti.

Obamaspeak on Syria: New wine in old bottle

Is anybody fooled?

snip: The narrative is that Assad stares at defeat, while all expert opinion suggests otherwise. Obama still imagines there is a ‘moderate Syrian opposition’ the US can work with and that Assad must amicably make way for this opposition.

Obama probably knows he is holding on to a world of make-believe as part of public diplomacy. The US’ regional allies would expect him to stick to the narrative. On the other hand, what options does he have under the circumstances?

Obama underscored that Washington will neither cooperate nor militarily oppose the Russian operations in Syria. Instead, he chooses to thoroughly disagree with Putin’s decision and will keep harping on the need for a political solution to the conflict.

A Syria/Berliner ensemble: Escobar

snip: to Syria, where Russia, in roughly 48 hours, did more to smash the Wahhabi/Salafi-jihadi terror matrix than the coalition of dodgy opportunists in over a year and 6,000-plus “sorties.” So many wonders you can operate with a couple of Su-24s, decent sat intel, decent ground intel, and political will.

And then the bigger bang, not a whimper; the larger-than-life ridicule enveloping that tentacular industrial-military-security-intel complex that wastes 1.3 trillion a year.

When Insulting the Police is a "Crime"

snip: Allen insisted that Smith had written his comments with the purpose of “intimidating” the bold and valiant paladins of public order who patrol the forbidding streets of Arena, Wisconsin – two square miles inhabited by about 800 people whose ethnic homogenity makes the Osmond family look like the United Colors of Benetton.

Now, I grant that no amount of body armor adequate to protect the uniquely vulnerable egos of police officers who are targeted for abuse and ridicule. This is why we are told that growing – and still woefully inadequate – public criticism of law enforcement is nothing less than a “war on police,” and that high-profile criticism of cops is akin to ISIS-caliber terrorism.

France admits it directly supplied arms to Syrian “rebels”

President François Hollande confirmed in a Le Monde interview on August 19 that France has been directly supplying arms to the “rebels” of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in its proxy war to remove the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. This came ahead of the recent US decision to intervene militarily in Syria, ostensibly to crush the Islamic State (IS) opposition militia operating in Iraq and Syria.

French imperialism has been arming Syrian Islamist opposition forces since at least the spring of 2013.

Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11

We Created Al Qaeda to Fight the Soviets in Afghanistan

Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted on CNN that the U.S. organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets.

Brzezinski told Al Qaeda’s forefathers – the Mujahadin:

We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. That land over – there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.

How The US Helped To Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

by Garikai Chengu

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.

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.

Anti-Vaxxers Accidentally Fund a Study Showing No Link Between Autism and Vaccines.

Most experts today agree that the belief that childhood vaccines cause autism is based on bunk science. Even still, some advocacy groups claim immunizations are responsible for raising the risk for this neurodevelopmental condition, despite a growing body of research that shows there isn’t a link. (The study that most anti-vaccination groups point to was retracted after it wasfound to be based on falsified data.)

The Machine is not Your Friend

They can’t grow their food, mend a garment, build a shelter or read the weather from the signals in the sky. But they will justify this impotence by claiming that modern technology frees them up to pursue more meaningful activities. Like what? Mounting a camera to your hat and filming the sad emptiness that is urban living? Now there is an evolutionary leap forward.

The creators of these myriad devices, which dominate the human-built world, will claim that they are designed to save you time and money and exertion. But their real purpose is to turn you into a product addict - and to reap obscene profits while doing so. How else does one explain lines of people camping out to buy a slightly better phone than the one they bought a year earlier? At least they can now video each other with their GoPros as they shiver in their sidewalk lunacy.

Serco 'isn't fit to run prisons', says Labour

Labour says private prison company Serco must be booted out after an alleged rape in a jail.

Police, The Department of Corrections and Corrections Minister Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga were all investigating after the prisoner, previously segregated, was moved into the "mainstream" jail population, then allegedly beaten up and sexually assaulted.

Labour's acting Corrections spokeswoman Jacinda Ardern said the incident was "clear evidence" Serco was not fit to run New Zealand's prisons.

"After the chaos and violence we saw at Mt Eden Prison, we are now seeing Serco isn't fit to run Wiri prison either.

"It's there in black and white in Serco's contract that they have to run proper segregation policies at Wiri to keep at-risk prisoners safe. They clearly aren't living up to that."

Ms Ardern said the Government was "being soft" on Serco.

"They've had second chance after second chance so the Minister won't have to face up to reality," Ms Ardern added.

Putin and Obama's UN Showdown Helps Expose Obama's Treasonous Lies Protecting ISIS

The overt aggression in February 2014 of Hillary’s NGO-led coup in Kiev overthrowing the democratically elected Ukrainian president at Russia’s border violated and defied all international law regarding the sovereignty of nations. The imperialistic US Empire was chomping at the bit to gain full Black Sea access by stealing Russia’s naval base in Sevastopol. But Putin strategically outmaneuvered the Obama neocons by Crimea electing to be annexed by Russia as it had been for centuries earlier. Though it was clearly the US that was the foreign invader violently triggering another regime change, the feds began their nonstop attack demonizing Putin as the global villain ushering the latest installment of cold war II complete with a nuclear first strike contingency plan.

'Turned Out' Documentary Reveals Harsh Reality of Prison Rape In The United States

This horrifying documentary film examines the horrific subject of prison rape, at Alabama's Limestone Correctional Facility.
Estimates are that 20 percent of all men serving in US prisons have been raped. This film looks at the social system within prisons that allows this violent sexual behavior to occur. At the start of the film, a black prisoner says "this is a world within a world. You've got everything under the sun here. You got homosexuality run rampant, you've got gambling, you've got gangs, you've got everything." Limestone Correctional Facility's official website begins with the slogan "Where Public Safety Is An Everyday Commitment."

Moscow says 600 militants have fled Syria amid Russian airstrikes

Russia says its airstrikes on positions of the Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Syria have forced about 600 militants to leave and head to Europe.

Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov, a senior Russian General Staff official, made the remarks in a statement released on Saturday to sum up the outcome of Moscow’s three days of airstrikes in Syria.

"Our intelligence shows that militants are leaving areas under their control. Panic and desertion have started in their ranks," he said, adding, “Some 600 mercenaries have abandoned their positions and are trying to find their way into Europe.”

BEX Alert!!! - "Merkel: Iran’s stance on Israel ‘unacceptable’"

The German leader acknowledged that the Holocaust casts a shadow across the relationship between Germany and Israel, and said that she herself feels personal responsibility toward the Jewish state. As such, she said, she was conscious of her own efforts to maintain good ties between Jerusalem and Berlin.

“Israel’s security was and is a very important matter for every German chancellor – and so it will be in the future, too,” Merkel stated. “My statement must be understood in a very comprehensive way. It is frequently reduced to the military aspect, but it refers to an entirely fundamental commitment to Israel’s security. We are certainly not neutral.”

The chancellor also acknowledged — and lamented — the poor image that Israel has in Germany, and was fiercely critical of any comparison between Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians and the Nazis’ determination to eradicate the Jewish people.

Loretta Lynch: government shouldn't require reports of people killed by police

Attorney general Loretta Lynch says the federal government should not require police to report fatal shootings of civilians, sharply diverging from her predecessor Eric Holder’s stance on police killings.

In a conversation with NBC journalist Chuck Todd on a range of criminal justice issues, Lynch said on Thursday that she does not support a federal mandate to report people killed by police.

“One of the things we are focusing on at the Department of Justice is not trying to reach down from Washington and dictate to every local department how they should handle the minutia of record keeping, but we are stressing to them that these records must be kept,” she said at the Washington Ideas Forum, hosted by AtlanticLIVE and the Aspen Institute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, Madam Attorney General, but have you gone absolutely, barking mad to make such a statement, when so many African-Americans have been brutalized and killed by the police?!?

Yes, we need to create better community/police relationships; but that needs to be done hand in had with reporting fatal shootings of ALL civilians.

And your observation that "the small size of the average police department could make record-keeping difficult." is complete codswallop.

Madam Attorney General, these police departments are not tallying their numbers with an abacus; they are using computers, which makes the process more rapid, and efficient, than ever before.

To the families of every person illegally killed by a police officer, having made this statement, you do not appear at all to be on the side of American justice, which you have taken an oath to uphold; you appear to be in league with those who would rather cover this up, and erase it from America's collective memory.

That is truly unfortunate.

Congress Still Bans CDC Scientists From Studying Gun Violence

In the wake of another mass shooting (among many this year), we are asking again: What causes gun violence? Is there a causal relationship between gun ownership and gun violence? We might know the answers to these questions, or at least have a body of empirical evidence getting us closer to the answers, if government scientists were allowed to study them.

Webmaster addition: The CDC is a private corporation, funded in large part by the pharmaceutical industry as well as government grants. Congress does not have legal authority to tell them not to study an issue. In any event, given the recent scandal in which CDC rigged their study claiming to disprove a ling between vaccines and autism, I would not trust anything the CDC says about guns.

U.S. POLITICIANS ARE ASKED ABOUT SAUDI ATROCITIES... HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney smiled and repeatedly said, “Nice to see you,” when I asked if he had any concerns about the Saudi Arabian-led bombing campaign in Yemen.

– From the Intercept article: U.S. Senators Hem and Haw on Saudi Arabia’s Human Rights Abuses
Just in case you’re still confused as to why the Middle East is a flaming cauldron of death, destruction and chaos, Lee Fang provides you with some insightful observations from the self-proclaimed “leaders of the free world.”

From the Intercept:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US-enabled Saudi slaughter in Yemen is a proxy war against the Yemenite people, who had the gall to depose their US-sponsored puppet, Mansour Al-Hadi. And please remember; in the last election in Yemen, Al-Hadi's name was the only name on the ballot. "Democracy in action", right?!?

Now, let's talk about the wedding party assassinations, shall we?!? Is it not the US government and military giving the Saudis strike coordinates and intelligence for their airstrikes?!? What in the name of Heaven would cause the US government to want to have members of a wedding party extrajudicially assassinated?!?

A great PR triumph, that, Pentagon: way to go!!

And the upcoming crucifixion of the political dissident; does Obama secretly dream of being able to do this, right here in the United States?!? Maybe broadcast it on pay-per-view?!?

I would like to remind this administration that geopolitically, one is judged by the company one keeps. And the "company" of Saudi Arabia is company with one of the most blood-lust soaked, anti-democratic, repressive regimes on this planet.

This proxy war against Yemen may not go well; the country has been all but completely destroyed by the bombing of its entire infrastructure; schools, hospitals, commercial buildings, and houses.

That moment when a person has nothing left but their lives, and those lives do not seem be worth one heck of a lot, is the moment when the embracing of radicalism can become very attractive.

The late President John Kennedy said it best; "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

This is stark reality which both the House of Saud and the US government need to consider right now. Their collective actions have made a potentially negotiated settlement in the country virtually impossible.

Chris Mercer "Media saying White Supremacist" Truth is Half Black, but not one single picture of his black mom taken.

The government and media has to stay by their 'created' dialog about Chris Mercer. In fact there must be an unsaid pact to keep that narrative going. Why, do I say that. There are many pictures of Chris Mercer's white father but not one picture of his mother on the internet. Why is that? Because she is black.

I have a real problem with the slanted information about the shooting. The public is not being told the whole truth. It is having to fit into a narrative that is contrived. Is it any wonder I question every single thing that happens? When I see we are not being given all the information about an event and people involved and things are being hidden, I then doubt all the facts.

President Obama is caught between the harsh realities of the Mideast and the fantasy world of Washington’s warmongers, but he prefers to risk a global catastrophe than to stand up to the neocons, the liberal hawks, the Israelis and the Saudis.

John McCain Wants to Shoot Down Russian Planes

Sen. John McCain has a personal stake in the ISIS and al-Qaeda members currently being targeted by Russian fighter planes. It was just two years ago that McCain found himself in the embarrassing position of having to explain his sleepover with a group of ISIS-affiliated terrorists in Syria. He has repeatedly called for more direct US military involvement to overthrow the Syrian government. Repeated stories of the failures of the US rebel training program have only steeled his resolve. Facts must not get in the way of McCain's regime change plans for Syria.

A Petticoat Military: Comedy in Uniform

We need a bizarre tag Mike! Check the pics out.This is the military that is picking a fight with Russia.We are in a heapa trouble!

The military, once again, puts women into jobs the cannot do–this time, the Army’s Rangers–to advance the careers of political generals–among others, Maj Gen. Scott Miller, who oversees Ranger School. Or what used to be Ranger School.

The Army cheated, says Keating: lowered standards to be politically correct and keep feminists happy. This, as the Army knows, and everyone who has been in combat knows, as well as most people who have been in the field military, is a terrible idea.

The Army forces soldiers to wear pregnancy-simulators to teach them empathy–or so say feminists, but clearly the dykes enjoy humiliating the poor suckers. What must the Taliban think?

The Real “Blowback” in Syria

snip: According to Al-Masdar Al-‘Arabi, a high-ranking Syrian army official has confirmed to the news site that Chinese involvement in the Syrian conflict is here: “the Chinese will be arriving in the coming weeks.” This follows a week of speculation piqued by the apparent deployment of a Chinese cruiser to the Mediterranean that Russian Senator Igor Morozov has asserted is taking part in Russia’s Syrian operations.

If these reports are true, then there is a significant shift taking place in the Syria narrative, long dominated by the West, the Gulf states, the Israelis, the Turks and their puppet organizations in the country. We are now witnessing the rise of a power bloc that contains the second and third largest militaries on the planet as well as the active cooperation of the governments actually effected by the ISIS invasion. That brings with it a legitimacy that the US and GCC could only wish for in the conflict.

Drone Footage of a Battlefield ‘Victory’ in the Orwellian Permanent War

Waking Times

World War 3 has already started, although the global fervor has a good bit of ramping up still to do and people are still a bit shy about calling it that. Russia is now flying sorties over Syria against CIA backed ISIS and other militant groups. Rhetoric and propaganda is building daily, and China is on the brink of entering Syria. Israel and the US aren’t sure who to attack next, while Iran and Turkey are threatening to get more heavily involved. Iraq, meanwhile, is an on-going blood bath, and surrounding nations are in various states of extreme duress and explosive tyranny. Northern Africa is a power vacuum after the take down of Libya and millions are fleeing the region as the refugee crisis in Europe explodes.

BEX Alert!!! - "UN urges US to take measures to reduce gun violence"

The United Nations has asked the United States to take measure to reduce gun violence following a mass shooting that killed nine people at a college campus in the state of Oregon.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned on Friday about the high death toll that US gun violence is inflicting on American lives.

"The Secretary-General expresses his strong hope that the United States, through the robust democratic process that characterizes it, will be able to take the necessary action to reduce the appalling toll in human life that gun violence is taking on American society," said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric .

BEX Alert!!! - "Russia’s actions in Syria recipe for disaster: Obama"

President Barack Obama has said that Syria will not lead to a proxy war between the United States and Russia, but described Moscow’s military engagement in the war-torn country as a “recipe for disaster”.

"We're going to continue to have tensions. And we're going to continue to have differences," but "we're not going to make Syria into a proxy war between the United States and Russia," Obama told a press conference on Friday.

However, he said that Putin cannot "distinguish between” the Daesh Takfiri terrorists and what he called “a moderate Sunni opposition that wants to see Mr. Assad go."

"From their perspective, they're all terrorists, and that's a recipe for disaster," he noted. . .

. . . Moscow’s commitment to the Syrian government runs counter to current US policy, which calls for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Russian airstrikes aim to preserve Syria’s territorial integrity: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin says one of the key objectives of Moscow’s anti-terror airstrikes in Syria is to preserve the Arab country’s territorial integrity. . .

. . . The Russian raids have drawn criticism from Western governments and their allies in the Middle East, which have been supporting the militants operating in the region.

The United States, Britain, France, Germany, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey released a joint statement on Friday, criticizing the Russian airstrikes that they said had not targeted Daesh positions.

In response, Russia's Defense Ministry said mainstream media reports about Moscow’s operation in Syria were "total nonsense."

Webmaster Addition: Another brilliant move by Putin. "Territorial Integrity" was the excuse the US used to support Poroshenko's attacks against the Eastern Ukrainian Republics!

Oregon Mass Shooter On Terror List Obama Refused To Take From Russia

The Federal Security Services (FSB) is reporting today that an American black-Islamist terror suspect, who yesterday committed an act of mass murder in the State of Oregon (United States), had been included on a list of 87,000 “known/suspected” Islamic terrorists that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) refused last month to accept from the Federation due to its not being “politically viable in the present atmosphere”.

John Hancock - Smuggling Powerhouse

My kind of American!

John Hancock did not directly participate in the Boston tea party. But he stood to lose the most from the East India Company imports of English tea to Boston. On the other hand Samuel Adams who led the Mohawks aboard the British ships was so close to John Hancock that Bostonians even joked that "Sam Adams writes the letters [to newspapers] and John Hancock pays the postage". You do the math.

After he inherited a fortune in his mid-20s, this elegant dandy nearly single-handedly bankrolled the early protests in Boston.

West should compensate Russia for fighting terrorists in Syria: Pundit

The United States and its Western allies should compensate Russian President Vladimir Putin for the costly military intervention to destroy terrorist groups operating in Syria, a writer and activist based in Boston says.

Russia has carried out airstrikes since Wednesday against the Daesh Takfiri terrorists (ISIL or ISIS) near the city of Homs in western Syria.

The Russian strikes have drawn criticism from Western governments and their allies in the Middle East, which have been supporting the militants operating in the region.

Moscow is “helping an ally who is under attack from a foreign mercenary army,” Daniel Patrick Welch told Press TV on Friday.

“Will it be expensive? Yes it’ll be expensive but the West should pay Putin back because this is their genie that they let out of the bottle and they can’t quite get back in,” Welch said.

Nigeria's former oil minister Alison-Madueke arrested in London - sources

Nigeria's former oil minister Diezani Alison-Madueke was arrested in London on Friday, a source from Nigeria's presidency circle and another with links to her family said.

Alison-Madueke was minister from 2010 until May 2015 under former president Goodluck Jonathan, who was defeated by Muhammadu Buhari at the election in March.

Buhari took office in May promising to root out corruption in Africa's most populous nation where few benefit from the country's enormous energy resources.

A police spokesman in London said he had no record of such an arrest. The National Crime Agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In a short statement on its website, the NCA said its International Corruption Unit had arrested five people across London on suspicion of bribery and corruption offences on Friday, without naming the suspects.

On CNN; "Problem with Russia in Syria. An Accidental Skirmish With The US LED ISIS Coalition"

All the media has already been mentioning how Russia is bombing their CIA "moderate" rebels of Al Qaeda. Of course they use the word 'rebel' instead of 'terrorist'. Which is really funny. Because wasn't it Al Qaeda who used to be called terrorist here? Weren't they the reason we went to Iraq and Afghanistan? Really weird.... I wonder if people are noticing that the U.S. now fully embraces and admits arming and supporting Al Qaeda, who were suppose to be our mortal enemies who did 9/11. Now it seems there is a slip and the U.S. is behind ISIS too.

VW tests U.S. enforcers’ fairness to foreign firms

Volkswagen picked the wrong market for its emissions trickery. The German carmaker has skidded into the U.S. legal system, which extracts bigger fines and more guilty pleas from overseas companies than American counterparts. Differences in the cases may explain the discrepancy. But any prosecutorial bias may attract as much scrutiny as VW’s dirty tricks.

The company should, of course, expect a painful reckoning. Rigging 11 million diesel-powered automobiles worldwide to fool environmental tests is a serious offense, no matter the jurisdiction.

First victim of the Oregon shooting named as trainee nurse, 19, as it's revealed gunman, 26, 'had Asperger's and went to a special-needs school' and may have written a manifesto

It has emerged earlier that the 26-year-old Oregon college gunman who may have been suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome celebrated other mass murderers, attended a school for students with 'emotional issues' and said: 'The more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't have a problem with preventing people with this degree of obvious mental issues from obtaining a gun, but the government uses these crazies to try to take guns away from perfectly sane Americans who have done nothing wrong at all.

A tale of two leaders: Obama vs. Putin at the UNGA

Watching Obama and Putin at the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) was a very interesting glimpse into the world of geopolitics and diplomacy. It was a tale of two leaders, or rather a misleader and a leader. Obama delivered the same old hollow rhetoric of “democracy and peace” we’ve come to expect from the US Teleprompter-in-Chief, while Putin was amazingly upfront and honest, though couching his words in diplomatic speech so as to avoid being too confrontational

The Mind of Mr. Putin

Perhaps it is time to climb down off our ideological high horse and start respecting the vital interests of other sovereign nations, even as we protect and defend our own.

If America’s elites continue to assert their right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations, to make them conform to a U.S. ideal of what is a good society and legitimate government, then we are headed for endless conflict. And, one day, this will inevitably result in war, as more and more nations resist America’s moral imperialism.

Nations have a right to be themselves, Putin is saying.

A Clinton Email Scandal Checklist

Hillary Clinton hopes you are busy. Hillary Clinton hopes you are confused. Hillary Clinton hopes the endless stories about her private email server—and her endless, fabulist explanations—will make your head hurt, make your eyes cross, make you give up trying to figure it out.

Hillary’s junk mail: The latest State Department release shows still more emails with classified information

A fresh set of emails from and to Hillary Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state underlines her terrible judgment using a private homebrew server to communicate as the nation’s chief diplomat.

The latest trove also makes clear the chasm between her defenses and the facts.

In March, during her first press conference on the issue, Clinton was unequivocal:

“I did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. There is no classified material. I’m certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”

In August, she reiterated that line.

Not so. The 3,800 emails made public Wednesday included 215 that contained classified information — and three should have been considered “secret,” the government’s second-highest classification designation.

Chicken Little Al Gore Renews Climate Change Lie

Air so hot it melts airport runways. Floodwaters rise up to crumble roads and bridges. Methane gas billows up from the earth blowing terrifying holes in Siberia.

These scenarios sound straight out of the Book of Revelation or the movie “2012?. But, they are not. These scenarios were part of a three hour presentation by Al Gore in Miami as he works diligently to amass an army of organizers to spread his “global warming/climate change” propaganda.

According to the former US Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner, who has trained more than 5,000 people to combat this ruse in the last 18 months, our modern world is literally collapsing around us making it imperative for everyone to change their ways. Gore’s Academy award winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” gets an update at each session with the “latest news footage and startling videos” showing the effects of the fossil fuel industry that threatens the earth’s survival.

Hershey Sued for Sourcing Cocoa from Suppliers That Use Child Slaves

The consumer rights law firm known as Hagens Berman filed a lawsuit against Hershey, Mars, and Nestlé on Monday, on the behalf of three California residents. The crux of the lawsuit suggests that these companies not only knowingly sourced their cocoa from farms in West Africa that used child labor (and in many cases, child slave labor) but that they broke California state law by failing to disclose this fact on the packaging of their products.

Essentially, they are suing for false advertising, and claim that they never would have purchased products from these companies if they knew how they were made. All three companies have since responded to the lawsuit, and have predictably claimed they are not guilty of any wrongdoing.

Obama on Gun Control After Oregon: “We Collectively Are Answerable to Those Families”

President Obama spoke in response to the Oregon shooting, vowing once again to spend the last 15 months of his final term to ensure more gun control legislation is passed.

“This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America. We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.”

“We have seat belt laws because we know it saves lives,” he said.

Obama continued:

“The notion that gun violence is somehow different… that our freedom and our Constitution prohibits any modest regulation… of how we use a deadly weapon… when there are law abiding gun owners all across the country who could hunt and protect their families and do everything they do under such regulations doesn’t make sense.”

He also referenced how gun control in the UK and Australia was able to be passed in response to just one single mass shooting.
