Email news wipes Hillary’s second reset

Hillary Clinton’s furious effort to refocus her struggling campaign on something other than the scandals that have dogged it from the start just ran smack into a brick wall.

First, the WaPo reported that Clinton had misrepresented why she turned over emails from her private server. It wasn’t routine records keeping as Clinton claimed, but the discovery of her secret email server more than a year ago that triggered the request for her documents and her eventual compliance. That dropped just as Clinton hit the Des Moines Register for a meeting with editors and she was caught flat-footed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!



UPDATE: Apparently FOX News is now banning me from commenting. A lot of corporate media have blacklisted me since I started speculating that behind Hillary's private email scandal was a repeat of the Clintons' 1996 Chinagate secrets-for-cash scandal!

Disaster Capitalism: Outsourcing Violence and Exploitation

In essence, predatory corporations (which usually keep a low profile) are financed by government money (that is, your taxes), supported by tax concessions and insulated from genuine accountability, political criticism and media scrutiny while being given enormous power to provide the infrastructure and labor to conduct a function, domestically or internationally, which has previously been performed by a government or international organization. If this happens at the expense of a nation truly exercising its independence, then too bad.

The New Shackle of Serfdom: Clinging to Healthcare Insurance

One of the more remarkable characteristics of American life is our passive acceptance of systems that are so obviously completely insane. Yes, I refer to our healthcare system, a.k.a. sickcare because in America sickness is profitable and health is not, and healthcare profiteering that would be the envy of pirates and warlords everywhere is the norm.

Who stands with Ahmed?

Mohamed, a young engineering enthusiast, was arrested after bringing a clock he had built to school to show one of his teachers. His English teacher believed that it was in fact a bomb, and the school proceeded to call the police. In the hours that followed, he was fingerprinted, interrogated, and was not allowed to call his father.

There was one piece of the incident that transformed it from a potentially traumatizing experience for one person into a call to protest for many: a photo of Mohamed, handcuffed, looking frightened in a well-worn NASA t-shirt.

The photo exploded on Twitter and Facebook. Soon news outlets worldwide were pursuing the story, and by Wednesday, Ahmed Mohamed was a household name.

San Diego activist group gets threatening email calling Ferguson protestors “animals” and the group “scum”. IP address traces back to…the San Diego Sheriff’s Department!

Yes, that’s right. San Diego Sheriff’s Department sends not-so-anonymous hate mail to activists. Just see for yourself. There is no exaggeration, photoshop. No lies.
Every time I get such news I’m sure that ACAB will soon become the second name of our police officers.

United Against Police Terror San Diego (UAPTSD) received an email through the contact page of their website at 6:19 PST on September 16. Posted in ALL CAPS, the email ridiculed UAPTSD and their mission. The sender praised gang injunctions and referred to protestors in places like Ferguson as “animals.” They drew a line between activists and “the real citezens [sic] of this county and the nation” who “work hard” and “dont [sic] accept government welfare”. The email ends by stating “the good people of this county and country will always prevail over scum like you. Good luck. Your [sic] going to need it.”

White Genocide: Racist Conspiracy Theory or Inconvenient Truth?

Most people will tell you that genocide is a group of people being murdered in some way, but that is just the popularized version. Contrary to the popular misconception, genocide does not have to be violent or involve mass murder – it could be a series of political policies to get rid of a group.

If there is a plan to target a group for destruction, that is genocide. In this article, you should see this “behind the scenes” plan come to light.

Susan Sontag, a film maker and professor, once remarked that “The white race is the cancer of human history.”

America’s Other Al Qaeda

By Tony Cartalucci

It is no longer tenable for the United States and its regional allies in and near the Middle East to claim they are backing “moderate rebels” in the proxy war raging in Syria, Iraq, and parts of Lebanon. There is the Syrian government on one side, and terrorists including Al Qaeda and its various franchises such as the Al Nusra Front and the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL) on the other...

Because it is relatively poorly understood and under-reported in comparison to other more notorious terrorist groups, the Turkish-Uyghur terror network is perhaps more dangerous and of greater utility to the United States and its allies presently versus their increasingly exposed Al Qaeda legions...

Russia's support for Syria could lead to confrontation: Kerry

US Secretary of State John Kerry has warned that Moscow’s support for the Syrian government could lead to a confrontation between American forces and Russian troops in the Arab country.

"These actions could provoke a further escalation of the conflict and lead to the loss of more innocent lives, increasing the flow of refugees and risking a confrontation with the anti-ISIL coalition operating in Syria," Kerry said on Wednesday, referring to the US-led group said to be fighting against Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in Syria and Iraq.

Kremlin promises ‘counter-steps’ in reply to US deploying nuclear weapons to Germany

The planned deployment of the latest US nuclear bombs at the Buchel Air Base in Germany would disrupt the strategic balance of forces in Europe and could force a reaction from Russia, President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary has stated.

“It may lead to the destruction of the strategic balance in Europe. Therefore it would definitely cause Russia to take corresponding counter-steps and counter-measures in order to restore the strategic balance and parity,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

“This is another step and unfortunately it is a very serious step towards increase of tensions on the European continent. Such actions cannot be described as a step towards stronger trust and greater stability,” the Russian official added.

ISIS Czar Allen Stepping Down Amid Second Scandal, Support For ISIS

It was revealed on September 22 that Barack Obama’s hand-picked ISIS Czar, disgraced Gen. John Allen, will be leaving his post in the coming weeks. The information was transmitted to the Bloomberg View from four separate administration officials who said that the White House was not ready to announce Allen’s resignation officially but that the twice disgraced General would be stepping down in early November.

Planned Parenthood video shows abortionists laughing at the sound of a baby's skull cracking, talking about how to avoid getting caught trafficking baby parts

An impressed Planned Parenthood medical assistant can be heard on camera saying, "Five stars!" looking at a high-quality, newly-harvested fetal heart lying in a Petri dish. This heart is one of several organs and limbs that had just been meticulously extracted from a living fetus. The sight of the extracted organs and the sound of sinister elation in the assistant's voice is enough to make anyone's stomach turn inside out.

In another shot, a medical assistant is seen picking through several recognizable body parts in the Petri dish, singling out a pair of legs while announcing, "Another boy!"

This is what goes on in the pathology labs of Planned Parenthood, where one of the most sadistic, for-profit organ-harvesting enterprises is operating in utmost secrecy. Thankfully, these secrets are being brought to light.

Almost half of Americans clearly identified government as a clear and “immediate” threat, and are obviously outraged about what is going on.

Oddly, the number of angry Americans has remained consistent in poll number ever since about 2006 during George W. Bush’s second term, maintaining around 46-49% throughout Barack Obama’s entire presidency.

The Crisis of the Now: Distracted and Diverted from the Ever-Encroaching Police State

distracted and confused?

snip: Surely Americans would be concerned about the Obama administration’s plans to use behavioral science tactics to “nudge” citizens to comply with the government’s public policy and program initiatives? There would be no end to the uproar if Americans understood the ramifications of the government’s plan to train non-medical personnel—teachers, counselors and other lay people—in “mental first aid” in order to train them to screen, identify and report individuals suspected of suffering from mental illness. The problem, of course, arises when these very same mental health screeners misdiagnose opinions or behavior involving lawful First Amendment activities as a mental illness, resulting in involuntary detentions in psychiatric wards for the unfortunate victims.

The CSTO arrives in Iraq and Syria

by Thierry Meyssan

The intervention of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation) against terrorism in Iraq and Syria may be the beginning of a world order based on the cooperation and defence of civilian populations, or, on the contrary, a period of East-West confrontation in which the West openly supports terrorism. Contrary to popular belief, this military deployment is aimed less at defending Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic than the members of the CSTO themselves. It is therefore not negotiable. The debates in the UNO General Assembly and Security Council on the 30th September will reveal the response of Washinton and its allies. In any case, nothing will ever be the same.

Is NOAA Altering Weather Data Ahead of the Big UN Climate Change Meeting?

It has been suggested, with evidence, that NOAA has been a little less than forthcoming with temperature data this year ahead of all these big UN meetings addressing Agenda 21 and climate change. I'm sorry, did I say "a little less than forthcoming"? If this is true, I meant to say a bunch of big fat liars.

It has been announced that more than 190 countries are set to meet in Paris in December to see about a "new global agreement on climate change aimed at reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and thus avoiding the threat of dangerous climate change" since the current "commitments" on emissions run out in five years.

Experts: California drought, fire crisis man-made

Environmental, water and policy experts who spoke with WND were unanimous in blaming the increasingly severe water shortage on man – not nature.

“The drought came to California courtesy of mother nature,” explained Bonner Cohen, senior fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research, adding that California’s climate, generally speaking, is arid or semi-arid.

“Mother nature serves up droughts to California on a very regular basis,” he said.

“Knowing this, one would think the political class in California would prepare for those droughts,” he told WND. “Yet, if you look at what the political class in California has done, the one thing that jumps out at you is that they have done absolutely nothing – zero – to prepare the state for something they knew was going to come sooner or later.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two major aquifers have been contaminated by fracking. Private water bottling companies are pumping other aquifers dry for pennies. The aqueduct system is in disrepair and leaking millions of gallons of usable water into areas that do not need it. Water mains are also cracked and leaking millio9ns of gallons. The government that takes your money did not take care of your country, preferring to spend the cash on Wall Street, wars, and Israel! Is it any wonder California is starting to look like Gaza?

The latest version of a walking, quadruped battlefield robot from Boston Dynamics, the military robotics maker owned by Google X, was tested by U.S. Marines last week. Spot weighs about 70kgs, is electrically operated and walks on four hydraulically-actuated legs. It's controlled via wireless by an operator who can be up to 500 meters away. It underwent trials and testing at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia as part of evaluations by the Marines on future military uses of robotic technology. In a series of missions, it was evaluated in different terrains including hills, woodlands and urban areas.

Judge tells State Dept. to find more staffers to process Clinton emails

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan also rejected the State Department’s timeline for searching the aides’ emails and insisted the government have them all put in an electronic system by the end of this week, and do an initial search to see which ones are related to the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks next week.

US DRONES RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE CIVILIAN DEATHS IN YEMEN THAN AL QAEDA

According to a U.N. report published last week, U.S. drone strikes have killed roughly 40 Yemeni civilians in the past year. The figure is 60% greater than the number of civilians killed by al Qaeda in that same period. al Qaeda is reportedly responsible for 24 civilian deaths. The government’s ongoing drone strikes in Yemen are little-known to the general American public. Many Americans still believe the U.S. military is only involved in Iraq and Afghanistan. In reality, the military is running offensive operations in Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries in the region.

Toronto area Police officers caught using their position for personal gain in recent years

Police officers from GTA forces and the OPP have been caught in recent years using their positions as police — and the extraordinary powers that come with the badge — for personal gain, a Toronto Star investigation has found.

Cops have interfered with investigations into friends, searched confidential databases to keep tabs on ex-lovers and colleagues, and used police resources for personal vendettas. Others abused their power just to goof off from work.

The Star’s ongoing Breaking Badge investigation has previously documented officers allowed to keep their jobs even though they were caught driving drunk, beating a spouse, inventing charges or, in one dramatic case, secretly filming a female relative showering and making pornography out of the images he captured.

FLASHBACK - The FBI Is Investigating Whether Hillary Clinton Violated the Espionage Act, According to Fox News

The latest spy-thriller-worthy plot point in the ongoing real-life drama over Hillary Clinton's exclusive use of a privately run email account comes via Fox News, which reports, via an anonymous source, that...

An FBI "A-team" is leading the "extremely serious" investigation into Hillary Clinton's server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to "gathering, transmitting or losing defense information," an intelligence source told Fox News.

Why the huge difference between US and the Brits?

Last summer, Israel launched Operation Protective Edge, a bloody war against Gaza that killed about 2,300 Palestinians, the vast majority of whom were civilians, including over 500 children. The attack also devastated Gaza’s infrastructure, and left about 500,000 people displaced or homeless. These war crimes and others, like Israel’s recent attack on the Freedom Flotilla, which sought to bring medical aid and solar panels to the Port of Gaza, have given rise to increased calls for Israel to be tried before the International Criminal Court.

Blair, who came back from hibernation to campaign against Corbyn, was rebuffed by the rank and file of the Labour Party. Party membership didn’t forgive Blair’s disgraceful servitude role to George Bush and his Israeli fabricated “dossier” to sell the invasion of Iraq.

The Iranian authorities claim to have compiled records of 17,000 victims of terrorism committed by such groups as MEK and Jundallah since the 1979 revolution. Details were presented at a recent international conference held in Tehran.

As well as ordinary citizens, such as Masoumeh’s mother mentioned above, the targets of assassination have included high-profile public figures: Iranian members of parliament, attorneys, government ministers, army generals and newspaper editors. In one of the most audacious attacks, in 1981, Iran’s prime minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar and the country’s president Modhammad Ali Rajai were both killed in a bomb blast carried out on the premier’s residence in the capital, Tehran.

All Republican Presidential Candidates Stand For War

There is not a peaceful person among the Republican candidates. Even the female is heartless.

Here is Carla Fiorina at the debate describing the way she will lead us to Armageddon. She won’t talk to Putin, but she will send him “the message” via military threats:

“Having met Vladimir Putin, I wouldn’t talk to him at all. We’ve talked way too much to him. What I would do, immediately, is begin rebuilding the Sixth Fleet, I would begin rebuilding the missile defense program in Poland, I would conduct regular, aggressive military exercises in the Baltic states. I’d probably send a few thousand more troops into Germany. Vladimir Putin would get the message. . . . Russia is a bad actor, but Vladimir Putin is someone we should not talk to, because the only way he will stop is to sense strength and resolve on the other side, and we have all of that within our control. We could rebuild the Sixth Fleet. I will. We haven’t. We could rebuild the missile defense program. We haven’t. I will.”

Jack Larson dies at 87; actor played Jimmy Olsen in 'The Adventures of Superman'

Lois Lane(akaNoel Neill) still lives. She is 94 and still looks like herself albeit with white hair.

In the early 1950s, when Jack Larson was offered a role in a new Superman TV series, he was loath to accept. Playing the hapless sidekick of a caped superhero on a kids’ show had no appeal for an actor with dreams of Broadway stardom.

But his agent prevailed, largely by arguing that the show would probably never be broadcast.

Ahmed Mohamed leaves Texas school after clock arrest

The family of a 14-year-old Muslim student who got in trouble over a homemade clock mistaken for a possible bomb withdrew the boy Monday from his suburban Dallas high school.

Ahmed Mohamed's father, Mohamed El-Hassan Mohamed, said he has pulled all of his children from their Irving Independent School District schools. Mohamed said the family is still deciding where to send the children to school.

Ahmed has said he brought the clock he made to MacArthur High School in Irving last week to show a teacher. Officials say he was arrested after another teacher saw it and became concerned. Ahmed wasn't charged, but he was suspended from school for three days.

"Ahmed said, 'I don't want to go to MacArthur,"' Ahmed's father told The Dallas Morning News. "These kids aren't going to be happy there."

News of the arrest sparked an outpouring of support for Ahmed, including from President Barack Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can you believe there are still propaganda shills out there like Bill Maher and Sarah Palin trying to defend what the school did?

CEO who raised price of old pill more than $700 calls journalist a ‘moron’ for asking why

Ever since an HIV/AIDS patient advocacy group began raising questions last week about why Turing Pharmaceuticals jacked up the price for a medication from $13.50 per pill to $750 overnight, anger against the company has been boiling over.

Blame America? No, Blame Neocons!

It has become common to discount any criticism of US foreign policy as “blaming America first.” It is a convenient way of avoiding a real discussion. If aggressive US policy in the Middle East – for example in Iraq – results in the creation of terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda in Iraq, is pointing out the unintended consequences of bad policy blaming America? Is it “blaming America” to point out that blowback – like we saw on 9/11 – can be the result of unwise US foreign policy actions like stationing US troops in Saudi Arabia?

The Real Reason Why Obama Received the Nobel Prize

President Obama caught a lot of flak when he was given the Nobel Prize in 2009. Even some of his supporters thought that the award was a little over the top, if not premature. After all, Obama hadn’t really accomplished anything up to that point. Previously he was a community organizer and a state Senator, and had only been president for a few months. What had he actually done to earn the award?

It turns out, the reasons for the award were as absurd as many of Obama’s opponents had asserted at the time. Geir Lundestad, the former director of the Nobel Institute, recently wrote a memoir of his career and revealed the real reason for Obama’s prize. Apparently the award was an attempt to strengthen and encourage Obama (in light of his calls to limit the proliferation of nuclear weapons at the time), though he doesn’t think it had the desired effect since many of his supporters criticized the award.

Forget Gold: This Precious Metal Will Skyrocket Within Two Years: “There Will Be A Supply Shock”

With everyone focused on gold as investment vehicle, many have ignored a metal that is 20 times rarer. Platinum, a precious metal critical for a number of global industries, continues to see depressed prices, so much so that today it is actually trading for less than the price of gold.

According to some analysts, the supply crunch is such that over the next two years we could realistically see this metal skyrocket to $3000 per ounce.

2.3 Million Applicants Fight for 368 Menial, Low-Wage Office Jobs in India

There’s been a lot of talk of unemployment here in the U.S., with overqualified, college-educated people falling out of the workforce because they’ve been searching for a job for so long and others working two part-time minimum wage jobs just to make ends meet at all.

Many of us worry over a future where it is predicted that eight out of the top 10 jobs that employ millions of people in this country are soon to be replaced by robots in the coming years.

So, is this what the future will look like?

When the government of Uttar Pradesh in India recently announced openings for 368 low-level, low-paying office jobs, the kind where people run basic errands or fetch coffee, they received an astounding 2.3 million job applications, completely overwhelming the system.

Some Americans Will Soon Need Passports to Board Domestic Flights

It wasn’t that long ago that a U.S. citizen could freely travel to countries like Mexico or Canada without providing a passport. But in recent years, crossing these borders has become more challenging (except for illegal immigrants of course) as our jackbooted government continues to insist upon making us safe from terrorists (that they created). As is usually the case with our government, when you give them an inch, they will take a mile.

Depending on where you live, in the near future you may have to provide a passport before boarding any airplane, including domestic flights. This is in accordance with the 2005 Real ID Act, which despite (or because of) widespread criticism, is being slowly rolled out in phases. You may recall that when the Real ID Act was first passed by Congress, just about every state government rejected it for various reasons.

Canadian Mountie Stands Trial for Horrific Child Abuse Case

Most Americans have some fairly silly ideas about what life is like for Canadians. The reality of the matter, is that Canada is a developed nation that isn’t all that different from our own. They lead normal lives under a system that has many of the same pros and cons that ours has, and that includes their system of law enforcement.

If there’s one problem that every police department in the world has to come to terms with, it’s that their profession tends to attract horrible people. Even a police department with immaculate standards and a thorough vetting process, will still end up hiring someone from the dregs of humanity. It’s an unavoidable fact of life when your profession involves exerting power and authority over other people, because evil people love power and authority more than well-adjusted folks do, and they’re much more capable of attaining it.

Paul Singer and the Universality of “Anti-Semitism”

"Anti-Semitism" isn't a peculiarly Western phenomenon. Nor is it a Korean phenomenon, or an Argentine phenomenon. It is a Jewish phenomenon, and it has followed the Jewish people through the centuries and across the oceans. As long as Jews remain unchanged, so too will the response to them remain unchanged.

Anti-Semitism: Why Does It Exist? And Why Does it Persist?

Over the centuries, hostility against Jews has repeatedly erupted in terrible violence. Again and again, Jews have been driven out of countries where they’d been living. Why does anti-Semitism exist? And why has rage against Jews broken out, again and again, in the most varied nations, eras and cultures? Closely related to this is the broader issue of relations between Jews and non-Jews – a subject that many writers and scholars have called “the Jewish question.”

Syrian war spurs first withdrawal from 'doomsday' Arctic seed vault

Syria's civil war has prompted the first withdrawal of crop seeds from a "doomsday" vault built in an Arctic mountainside to safeguard global food supplies. The seeds, including samples of wheat, barley and grasses suited to dry regions, have been requested by researchers in the Middle East to replace a collection in the Syrian city of Aleppo that has been damaged by the war.
