Is the “Truth Bomb” Being Released? – Bill Holter

“Bill, just a thought.
On several occasions you have indicated that at some point Russia (Putin) would be dropping a Truth Bomb aimed at the US.
In light of the recent Russian actions in Syria I would submit that he has just done such.
Let’s look back to last week when Putin addressed the United Nations. He spent some time talking about the Syrian conflict, the Mideast instability and the fallout now enveloping Europe. He put much of the blame on the Western powers and particularly singled out America and implied it’s lack of leadership, motives, nor decisive actions as a root cause. At one point in the speech Putin asked “Do you realize now what you’ve done?” In doing this he asked America directly and Barack Obama specifically, for all the world to hear?

Global Financial Meltdown Coming? Clear Signs That The Great Derivatives Crisis Has Now Begun

Warren Buffett once referred to derivatives as “financial weapons of mass destruction“, and it was inevitable that they would begin to wreak havoc on our financial system at some point. While things may seem somewhat calm on Wall Street at the moment, the truth is that a great deal of trouble is bubbling just under the surface.

Nurse giving flu shots reused syringes in Mercer Co.

More than 60 people in Mercer County, New Jersey are on alert after learning a nurse who administered flu shots was reusing the same syringe between patients.

The state Department of Health said Wednesday that nurse was changing the needle but she kept using the same syringe.

The concern is if blood got into the syringe, it could have been passed to another person.

Free blood tests were offered at the West Windsor Township Senior Center to dozens of employees of Otsuka Pharmaceuticals.

Total Wellness was alerted that a nurse they contracted to administer flu shots to employees of the pharmaceutical company failed to follow proper medical procedures.

The Minnesota Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the state's payday lending law involving out-of-state, online lenders.

The state sued Integrity Advance in 2011, saying the company violated the state lending law when making nearly 1,300 loans to borrowers in Minnesota at annual interest rates of up to 1,369 percent.

A state district court in 2013 concluded that the company violated the Minnesota law thousands of times and awarded $7 million in statutory damages and civil penalties to the state.

FLASHBACK - Hillary had second secret email address

The email address, published by The New York Times, was used in exchanges between Clinton and longtime adviser Sydney Blumenthal, and is from the same private email server that was uncovered earlier this year.

“Fyi. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered,” Clinton wrote Blumenthal from the ­email address HRod17@clintonemail.com.

The two were discussing strategies to help the opposition rebels oust Moammar Khadafy in Libya as that country descended into chaos in 2011.

Clinton’s office insisted just two months ago that the only private email address used by the former secretary of state during her tenure was hdr22@clintonemail.com.

Do civilians with guns ever stop mass shootings?

Even in states which allow concealed carry, there often aren’t people near a shooting who have a gun on them at the time. Many mass shootings happen in supposedly “gun-free” zones (such as schools, universities or private property posted with a no-guns sign), in which gun carrying isn’t allowed. And there is no central database of such examples, many of which don’t hit the national media, especially if a gunman is stopped before he shoots many victims. Moreover, at least some examples are ambiguous, because it might be unclear — as you’ll see below — whether the shooter had been planning to kill more people when he was stopped.

Still, for whatever they are worth, here is a list of some such incidents (which deliberately excludes killings stopped by people who were off-duty police officers, or police officers from other jurisdictions, at the time of a shooting, as well as some other cases which struck me as borderline):

Why Americans Should Closely Watch Unfolding Events in Guatemala

Guatemala’s current situation and tragic history can be traced back to the CIA-led coup in 1954 that ousted the democratically elected government of President Jacobo Arbenz and installed the military dictator Carlos Armas. Arbenz was an advocate for land reform and was loved by the poor. The wealthy hated him. And when the CIA couldn’t bribe him, they ousted him in a most humiliating way. Even after he went into exile, the agency used constant disinformation to smear him in every way imaginable until his strange death in a bathtub in 1971.

The Most Criminal Treaty in History Is Now Presented for Signing

This will be a large new international government that has been negotiated for years by international corporations, and which is now to be rubber-stamped by corrupt politicians on their behalf. Whereas those international corporations know the contract’s terms, the people who elected and are ruled by those politicians don’t, and (for four years, at least) they won’t.

This uncompromising stance for principles like national sovereignty, and trade without sanctions, makes the Western elites go barking mad.

Could anyone in the Obama administration have been so slow-witted to imagine that Russia wouldn’t move hard to counter US efforts to overthrow Moscow’s ally, Syria?

The Syrian war began almost five years ago by the US, France, Britain and Saudi Arabia to overthrow Syria’s Iranian and Russian-backed government. The result so far: 250,000 dead, 9.5 million refugees flooding Europe and Syria shattered.

This is nothing new: the first CIA coup attempt to overthrow a Syrian ruler Gen. Husni Zaim was in 1949.

A combination of imperial hubris and ignorance has led Washington to believe it could overthrow any government that was disobedient or uncooperative. Syria was chosen as the latest target of regime change because the Assad regime – a recognized, legitimate government and UN member –was a close ally of America’s Great Satan, Iran. Formerly it had been cooperating with Washington.

The Cold Truth About Susan G. Komen and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Rick Simpson, who pioneered curing cancer with cannabis, discovered a shocking insight while attempting to share his discoveries with the Canadian government. He realized that government resistance wasn’t about using the illegal substance of THC hemp. It was simply that the cancer industry doesn’t want a cure!

There would be too much money lost, an economic resource vacuum. And the financial downturn wouldn’t be restricted to Big Pharma and the oncologists who deliver chemo. There are many affiliated medical enterprises involved with the trillion dollar cancer industry.

Big Pharma and government grant research funds to universities would dry up. Radiation treatment equipment leasing and sales would come to a halt. And those cancer fund raisers would have to call it quits.

Carl Bernstein: Hillary Email Server ‘Solidified the Impression’ as Someone ‘Who Can’t Tell the Truth’

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” veteran journalist Carl Bernstein weighed in on the controversy surrounding Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

Host Chris Cuomo asked Bernstein if Clinton was evading the truth more than other politicians, to which Bernstein said, “Politicians lie.”

“We don’t know except in terms of judging individual candidates,” Bernstein replied. “Politicians lie. Hillary Clinton has been around public life for almost 40 years now and what we see is whenever she is in any kind of trouble, she is unwilling to open up and be transparent. It has dogged her for years and years, and right now it’s the biggest problem with her campaign.”

As for the server, Bernstein argued it “solidified the impression” she was dishonest, as some polling as indicated.

A Brief Guide to Western Media Propaganda For Syria

While Washington and its compliant corporate media outlets are busy trying to sell another round of ‘regime change’ in the Middle East, Russia has taken the initiative in trying to actually destroy ISIS and other terrorist brigades who seem to have eluded the US and its alleged ‘coalition’ for the last 13 months.

Many critics now believe that the US has actually been flying air cover missions for their own “moderate” terrorists on the ground – a collective fighting force that Washington and its allies have been counting on to overthrow the government in Damascus.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon and CIA’s preferred propaganda receptacle, CNN, are busy spinning, and re-spinning, the same old propaganda lines. Here’s a brief guide to some of Washington and London’s favorite recycled talking points…

Internet under attack: Hidden clause in TPP to limit free speech, journalism, online

One particularly controversial part of the provisions make it a crime to reveal corporate wrongdoing “through a computer system”. Experts have pointed out that the wording is very vague, and could lead to whistleblowers being penalized for sharing important information, and lead to journalists stopping reporting on them.

Others require that online content providers — such as YouTube and Facebook — must take down content if they receive just one complaint, as they are in the US. That will be harmful for startups looking to build such businesses since they’ll be required to have the resources to respond to every complaint, experts have pointed out.

Russian Offer to Share ISIL Targets With US-Led Coalition Gets No Response

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only logical reason for this non-response, on the part of the US government, is that it is actively looking for an "incident" in Syria to propagandize as the "raison d'etre" for war against Russia in Syria.

How Putin will Win in Syria

By most accounts, the conflict had deteriorated into a stalemate. Now, with Russia in the picture, that’s changed. Now the table is clearly tilted in Syria’s favor.…

The reason Putin will succeed where the US failed in its war on ISIS, is because the Russian air-strikes are going to be accompanied by a formidable mop-up operation that will overpower the jihadi groups on the ground. This is already happening as we speak. The Russian Air Force has been pounding terrorist targets across the Idlib Governorate for the last few days as well as ISIS strongholds in the East at Raffa. Putin is going to cut through these guys like crap through a goose.

Putin is not going to stop for anything or anyone. He’s going to nail these guys while he has them in his gun-sights, then he’s going to wrap it up and go home.

Smugglers Tried to Sell Nuclear Material to ISIS: AP Investigation

In the backwaters of Eastern Europe, authorities working with the FBI have interrupted four attempts in the past five years by gangs with suspected Russian connections that sought to sell radioactive material to Middle Eastern extremists, The Associated Press has learned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As usual, this was set up by informants. But this story is getting a huge amount of play on the corporate media, and I smell a false-flag rat. Only a few weeks ago, we were seeing this claim that ISIS was planning a nuclear attack on the west, and here we have another story appearing to explain hos ISIS is obtaining the nuclear materials for such an attack.

Now, what would be the consequences of a nuclear or dirty bomb going off somewhere in the United States? Obviously, it would be used to motivate the American people into supporting more wars on ISIS, the Russians and Syrians be damned. But what does that gain ISIS? ISIS is already reeling from the Russian attacks. Goading the Americans right now make little strategic sense. Indeed ISIS/Al Qaeda/Rebels are at this moment screaming to the United States for assistance ... which makes them the very last people planning a nuclear attack on the United States.

Before you believe this latest bovine excrement, please remember all the other lies used to trick you into wars. There were no torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin.There was no Spanish mine that blew up the USS Maine in Havana harbor. The Lusitania WAS carrying weapons and was a legitimate target of war. Pearl harbor was not a surprise, and documents declassified in 1994 confirm Roosevelt goaded the Japanese into the attack. and, of course, Saddam did not actually have nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

US Hawks Dream Up Russian Threat to Baltics, 'Forget' to Provide Motive

In a recent article for Foreign Policy, journalist Paul McLeary warned of the threat of the Russian army invading northeastern Poland to connect with the exclave of Kaliningrad, thus cutting the Baltic states off from NATO. The only question the journalist forgets to answer is what would drive Russia to make this maneuver to ignite WWIII.

So far so good, except neither the US Army commander nor McLeary bother to address the 800-pound elephant in the room about why in the world Russia would make a decision to launch an invasion of Poland, a member of NATO, presumably followed by attacks on three more NATO members, which would most certainly lead to an all out war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More desperation on the cusp of Madness in the part of the neocons...

Russia has seen what war is like, up close and personal, as has its European neighbors, and will not do anything to ignite a war, either in the Middle East or Europe.

The US and NATO, on the other hand, are war-mongers of the highest order, and are desperate to do something, anything, to get a war going against Russia, as you can see from the mounting demonization of Russia, which is very close to reaching critical mass at this point.

EXCLUSIVE: Russian jets 'intercept' US predator drones over Syria, officials say

Russian fighter jets shadowed U.S. predator drones on at least three separate occasions high above Syria since the start of Russia’s air campaign last week, according to two U.S. officials briefed on this latest intelligence from the region.

Meanwhile, U.S. Navy Captain Jeff Davis told reporters a U.S. aircraft flying over Syria had to be rerouted to avoid a Russian fighter jet at least once.

“We have taken action to maintain safe separation,” Davis said. He did not disclose which type of U.S. aircraft was involved.

Folks, may I remind you again: Russia was invited by the Syrian government to get rid of ISIS and all other jihadist groups; the US government was not.

But I am sitting here at my computer, having an industrial-strength palm to forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

Until, and unless, senior Russian and US military officials talk about how to avoid these incidents, we are absolutely, and unmistakably on the road to a military confrontation between the US and Russia in Syria.

Unfortunately, just because such a confrontation would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is absolutely no guarantee that they won't do it.

Guantánamo reinstates genital searching policy to prevent lawyer-client meetings

This week, two clients of international human rights NGO Reprieve chose not to meet their attorneys at Guantánamo due to reinstated genital searches, raising fears that the searches are being used in a deliberate attempt to stop detainees from meeting with their lawyers.

Staff at Guantánamo told Reprieve attorney Cori Crider during her visit this week, that cleared detainee Samir Moqbel refused their meeting because he didn’t want to submit to the genital search.

Guantánamo staff explained in prior filings that the search involved invasive searches of the prisoner’s groin “by placing the guard’s hand as a wedge between the [detainee’s] scrotum and thigh . . . and using [a] flat hand to press against the groin to detect anything foreign attached to the body,” after which a guard “uses a flat hand to frisk the detainee’s buttocks to ensure no contraband is hidden there.”

Jeb Bush’s 9/11 problem

On the campaign trail in New Hampshire two weeks ago, Jeb Bush was asked a question for which he clearly wasn’t prepared, which hearkened back to Bush’s time as Florida Governor. You can see the question here.

“According to Sergeant Marty (Mike) Treanor and other law enforcement officials in Sarasota Florida, the files pertaining to 9/11 hijacker pilots Marwan Al-Shehhi and Mohamed Atta from Huffman Aviation Flight School in Venice Florida were loaded onto two Ryder trucks and driven onto a C-130 cargo plane which left Sarasota the day after 9/11,” began newly-minted radio talk show host Mike Jackman, who with his brother comprise a media outlet pols this election season can ill afford to miss appearing on called Jackman Radio.

“Is it true that you were onboard the C-130? And, if so, can you tell us what became of the files?”

According to those who were there, a certain amount of discomfort ensued. Bush, who has appeared as limp as overcooked spaghetti on the campaign trail, visibly stiffened.

Agent Orange Dioxin, Toxic Dumps at Okinawa US Military Base

Documents released in September 2015 by the Pentagon under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that Agent Orange dioxin was discovered at the U.S. Army’s Machinato Service Area (MSA), Urasoe City, Okinawa, in the 1970s.1 The 82 pages of reports produced by the U.S. Army, Navy and Marine Corps focus on a 46,000 square-metre outdoor storage area within the base which was used to store “retrograde shipments from Viet-Nam” (1) – including herbicides – during the 1960s and 1970s. Following tests of the soil and water in the mid-1970s, USMC documents cite the discovery of a “high concentration” of dioxin in the area (77); a United States Forces Japan report specifies the detection of “dioxin (agent orange component)” in 1975 (2). The findings contradict Pentagon assertions as recently as 2015 that Agent Orange was never stored on Okinawa.2

How these Vets were considered "irrelevant" upon their exposure to Agent Orange in Okinawa, is pretty close to treason on the part of the higher ups who knew, but covered up.

This disgusts me.

As much as I abhor war as a solution to geopolitical problems, every single one of our Vets deserves the same, timely, first-class medical care that Dick Cheney gets; they have earned it.

The TPP: a monster too big to fail?

By Jon Rappoport

Now that all 12 nations have agreed to the text, the US Congress must vote on it. Since the Congress has already granted Obama fast-track authority, no committees will discuss it; no filibustering is permitted; no changes can be made to the text.

Again I stress: Obama was put in the White House to make TPP and similar treaties come to fruition. Failure is not an option...

How Putin will Win in Syria

The reason Putin will succeed where the US failed in its war on ISIS, is because the Russian air-strikes are going to be accompanied by a formidable mop-up operation that will overpower the jihadi groups on the ground. This is already happening as we speak.

There’s an extraordinary article by author Aron Lund of the Carnegie Endowment titled “Putin’s Plan: What Will Russia Bomb in Syria?” What’s so interesting about the piece is that it was published on September 23, a full week before Russia entered the war, and yet, Lund seems to have anticipated Putin’s actual battle plan. Military geeks are going to love this piece which is well worth reading in full. Here’s a short blurb from the text:

Huge oil discovery in Golan Heights - Israeli media

A big oil deposit has been found in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, with enough reserves to last Israel for decades, according to the country's media.

The Israeli presence in the Golan Heights is in dispute. The region is internationally recognized Syrian territory that has been occupied by Israel since the 1967 Six-Day War between Israel and several Arab states. UN Resolution 242 (1967) demands the withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from the territories occupied in the conflict. Israel disagrees with the wording of the resolution, saying the territories are disputable.

Using deadly force — as a first resort

The Israeli army sharpshooter not only shot the wrong person, he or she also shot the wrong person in the wrong part of the body — his chest instead of his leg. That is the official explanation the Israeli army gave on Tuesday for mistakenly killing 13-year-old Abed al-Rahman Abdallah a day earlier during clashes in the Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem.

Russia Seeks New, Broader Military Talks With US on Syria Strikes

Russia has formally offered a new round of “deconfliction” talks with the US on their respective wars against ISIS in Syria, aimed at preventing the risk of conflicts between the two nations’ warplanes as they both operate in the same area against the same forces.

Russia suggested the new talks should be broader than previous discussions, and that they were open to making deals to ensure that the two nations don’t have any “midair mishaps” or serious risk of confrontation.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter responded by condemning Russia, saying that their recent violation of Turkish airspace during an anti-ISIS sortie justified the US to “further strengthen our posture” against Russia, though he did suggest that the talks may well happen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Secretary Carter; the Russian incursion over Turkish airspace was a mistake created by Turkey by recently redrawing their border; Turkey and Russia have already reconciled on this, and it is a non-issue.

But NOT having these talks, in a frank, and wide-ranging manner, sir, is an absolute recipe for disaster, and a near guarantee of direct military confrontation with Russia.

OR.... is a direct military confrontation against Russia something this Administration wants to see happen, because that will be the "distraction" from the US economic crash which is most probably very close at hand?!?

One has to wonder.

Middle East Conflicts Will Lead To 'Total War,' French President Warns

Europe must live up to the challenge of an upheaval that has forced hundreds of thousands of refugees to flee Syria, where everyone including Iran, Russia and the West must seek a political solution, French President Francois Hollande said on Wednesday.

Speaking alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, eastern France, Hollande said the risk of failure was "total war" and that Europe, if slow to grasp the scale of the refugee exodus, had now made a start.

As for Syria, Hollande reiterated the Paris line that any solution for Syria had to be based on an alternative to President Bashar al-Assad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are we supposed to applaud Hollande for his magnificent grasp of the obvious?!?

Or take him to task because he sees no other answer to Syria's security future than the ouster of Bashar Al-Assad, regurgitating the US government line?!?

I would like to remind President Hollande that when Al-Assad was re-elected, it was with over 80% of the popular vote in Syria, with international observers reporting it as a free and fair election.

I would also like to politely remind Hollande that the government of Syria invited the government of Russia to assist them with getting rid of ISIS, and other anti-regime groups: the US, France, Germany, and NATO were not invited to do so, which makes any military intervention by these countries OR NATO totally illegitimate, according to international law.

And ultimately, I would like to strongly caution President Hollande that regime change in Syria right now will do just about as well for Syria as did the US/NATO-led ouster of Ghadaffi in Libya for that country. I am quite certain he understands what the ultimate outcome was from that regime change.

Under such a scenario, we are looking at a major catastrophe for both the country and the region, much worse than we are seeing today.

Game Over Europe – a ‘Colour Revolution’ is Coming

Every time I see the old, good George Soros saying something about democracy and European values, I know that something is going to happen. This way the case of Ukraine, when George argued that democracy is the most important and when he says that European values are most important and that is why we must accept million refugees every year. How will it end? Probably as usual: fires, riots, overthrowing governments and total destabilization in Europe, more or less as it ended up recently in Ukraine. However, this time, ‘democracy’ and European values are installed on a much wider scale and by pretty determined are going to bring a ‘colour revolution’ from the Middle East to the heart of dying Europe.

Georgia school pays up after teacher tells first-grader his mom is ‘bad’ because she doesn’t believe in God

A Georgia public school agreed to stop two teachers from praying in class and promoting their religious beliefs to children, but only after a secular group filed a lawsuit.

A kindergarten teacher and first-grade teacher at Swainsboro Primary School led students in prayer before lunch last year and then singled out students whose parents complained, reported Patheos.

The teachers ordered those children to sit outside the classroom in a hallway while other students prayed, and one of the teachers told students their classmates couldn’t recite the Pledge of Allegiance because it contained the phrase, “under God.”

Another teacher told one child that he should “make a good decision” and join his classmates in prayer, according to a complaint filed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

The group also complained that first-grade teacher Katherine Brights told that same boy that he shouldn’t listen to his mother because she was “a bad person for not believing in God.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian and an American, I absolutely believe in the separation of church and state, and I find myself thoroughly appalled at what these teachers did.

Education should be just that at a public school; education, not spiritual indoctrination of any kind, period, end of discussion.

And traumatising a kid by telling him that he "...shouldn't listen to his mother because she was 'a bad person for not believing in God.'; forgive me, but where is the Christian "love" and lack of judgment in this statement?!?

The short answer is, nowhere. And that is the very, very, sad thing to me about some professing Christians who are so deeply lost in their own judgement that they cannot reach out with love and kindness to others, if those others believe differently.

Employees at company working with Clinton email server expressed concerns

Johnson indicates that a "Clinton family company," Clinton Executive Service Corp., paid for the back-up services, operated through a device called the Datto SIRIS S2000, and that the purchase was made by Platte River Networks when the server was moved from her private residence to a New Jersey-based data center in 2013.

In the letter, Johnson quotes from emails sent by and to employees at Platte River Networks, which indicate there was discussion about how the duration of data backups could be reduced, apparently at the direction of the Clinton Executive Service Corp.

Then this past August, a Platte River Networks employee wrote to a coworker that he was, "Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy (sic) s**t."

So Hillary told the back-up company to not save the backups past thirty days!

FBI Seizes Four State Department Servers in Clinton Email Probe

The FBI has seized four State Department computer servers as part of its probe into how classified information was compromised on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email system, according to people familiar with the investigation.

The four servers, which were located at the State Department’s headquarters building, were seized by the FBI several weeks ago. They are being checked by technical forensic analysts charged with determining how Top Secret material was sent to Clinton’s private email by State Department aides during her tenure as secretary from 2009 to 2013, said two people familiar with the probe. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because it is an ongoing investigation.

State Department spokesman John Kirby referred questions about the computer servers to the FBI. An FBI spokeswoman, Carol Cratty, declined to comment.

Hillary's emails WERE backed up Homeland Security committee reveals - and IT firm she used feared they were involved in 'shaddy s***'

Some of Hillary Clinton's emails may still exist on the 'cloud' thanks to a technical hiccup.

A letter by Ron Johnson, head of the Senate's Homeland Security Committee, sent to the head of a company tasked with the storage, Datto Inc. of Norwalk, Connecticut, revealed that information from Clinton's private server was accidentally transferred to an off-site server and it may still be there.

The letter, first obtained by McClatchy, also indicates that in February Clinton's team directed a company responsible for the primary care of Clinton's server, Platte River Networks, to cease saving sent emails after 30 days.

In August, around the time that the Federal Bureau of Investigations took possession of the Clinton server, an employee of Platte River, mentioned the 30-day directive in an internal email and said, 'Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy s***.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is all feeling like theater. Why is the FBI and DoJ running around to various computer companies trying to scavenge Hillary's emails. Doesn't the NSA already have them? Hillary's server, being outside the government, would have been wide open to NSA, right? NSA built all those costly data centers to copy and store all Americans' emails, right?

So one of two conclusions may be drawn from this.

1. The FBI and DoJ are putting on a dog and pony show of being thorough in investigating Hillary's email, at the end of which they will declare nothing was found (a repeat of what they did during the investigation into murdered White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster).


2. The NSA spying on Americans is a total bluff, to scare us into silence.

Take your pick.


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! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

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!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

Shock study: Chemotherapy can backfire, make cancer worse by triggering tumor growth

Long considered the most effective cancer-fighting treatment, chemotherapy may actually make cancer worse, according to a shocking new study.

The extremely aggressive therapy, which kills both cancerous and healthy cells indiscriminately, can cause healthy cells to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to further treatment.

Researchers in the United States made the "completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body when they are easy to kill in the lab.

They tested the effects of a type of chemotherapy on tissue collected from men with prostate cancer, and found "evidence of DNA damage" in healthy cells after treatment, the scientists wrote in Nature Medicine.

Chemotherapy works by inhibiting reproduction of fast-dividing cells such as those found in tumors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This should not have been "unexpected"; the issue of treatment of cancers which initially go into remission, but ultimately metastasize somewhere else in the body, has been known to cancer patients for decades, and SHOULD have been known to cancer researchers, if anyone had taken the time to look at the evidence right in front of their noses.

OF course, really educating doctors and patients takes away from the bottom line of a billion dollar specialty of the medical/industrial complex, so no one really wanted to talk about where, case after case, this was obviously an undeniable fact.

The New York Times Passes off a Russian Opposition MP as 'Kremlin'

NYT: "Although President Vladimir V. Putin has ruled out sending ground forces to Syria, a senior Kremlin defense official told Russian news agencies on Monday that military veterans who had fought in eastern Ukraine were likely to start showing up as “volunteer” ground forces in Syria. The statement by the official, Adm. Vladimir Komoyedov, head of the armed forces committee in Russia’s Parliament, asserted that such volunteers “cannot be stopped."... Dear NYT - believe it or not - but the Kremlin and the Parliament in Moscow are indeed two dissimilar institutions. The retired Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov is the elected chairman of the defense committee of the Russian Duma and not a “Kremlin official”. Also - Senator John McCain is not a “White House official” no matter how much he would like to be one. The Kremlin cares about the former Admiral's opinion just as much as the White House cares about McCain's usual blabber. Komoyedov can announce whatever nonsense he likes.

Digital rights groups warn that TPP "will criminalize our online activities, censor the Web, and cost everyday users money." (Photo: Getty)

The "disastrous" pro-corporate trade deal finalized Monday could kill the Internet as we know it, campaigners are warning, as they vow to keep up the fight against the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement between the U.S. and 11 Pacific Rim nations.

"Internet users around the world should be very concerned about this ultra-secret pact,"said OpenMedia's digital rights specialist Meghan Sali. "What we’re talking about here is global Internet censorship. It will criminalize our online activities, censor the Web, and cost everyday users money. This deal would never pass with the whole world watching—that’s why they’ve negotiated it in total secrecy."

If you get all of your news from mainstream media and cable TV infotainment, then you’re probably unaware that glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp herbicide) has been linked to cancer. The World Health Organization stated in March that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen, and California will soon label it as such.

The MSM addict will also be unaware that long-term exposure to glyphosate—even tiny amounts deemed “safe” by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—can lead to liver and kidney damage.

The “safe” level of glyphosate for U.S. drinking water was set at 0.7 ug/L in 1994, and this has not been revised, despite studies over the years showing glyphosate’s toxicity. For comparison, the European Union’s safe glyphosate level for drinking water is 0.1 ug/L.

Several countries have banned or restricted the herbicide’s use, and other leading nations are considering legislative bans.

China's plan to control the hearts, minds and internet connections of its citizens continues unimpeded. That's the great thing about authoritarian regimes: rollout of mandatory programs is usually only a problem of logistics, not opposition.

It's a way of defining who someone in terms of the government's desires and aims. And its desires aren't all that honorable.

Everybody is measured by a score between 350 and 950, which is linked to their national identity card. While currently supposedly voluntary, the government has announced that it will be mandatory by 2020...

Russia attacks from the air looks have encouraged the Syrian army to launch a ground offensive after a series of defeats in northwest Syria in recent months, according to the AP.

Russian air strikes destroyed the main warehouse of weapons, with which the US is practiced by rebel groups in Syria, said the commander of the rebel group.
