Levin releases new information from CIA cable debunking Atta Prague meeting

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today plans to introduce into the Congressional Record important new information about how Bush administration officials misled the nation in advance of the Iraq War, and called on CIA Director John Brennan to fully declassify an important 2003 CIA cable.

Levin will introduce a letter he received from CIA Director John Brennan, declassifying for the first time some details of a March 2003 CIA cable warning the Bush administration against references to the allegation that Mohammad Atta, the leader of the 9/11 hijackers, had met before the attacks in Prague, Czech Republic, with an Iraqi intelligence officer. He also introduced a translated excerpt from a book by the former head of Czech counterintelligence, describing U.S. pressure to confirm that the meeting took place. In fact, no such meeting occurred. And he called on Brennan to fully declassify the CIA cable.

The New Cold War Policy Has Backfired

What is occurring is a radical shift in U.S.-European diplomacy – in a way that according to textbook theory is inherently unstable and unworkable.

In following U.S. New Cold War confrontation, Europe has been acting against its own economic interests. Its neoliberal Third Energy law has effectively blocked Russia from having any economic gain in selling more gas to Europe.

The world’s geopolitics, major trade patterns and military alliances have changed radically in the past month. Russia has re-oriented its gas and oil trade, and also its trade in military technology, away from Europe toward Eurasia.

Dianne Feinstein was the canary in the coalmine. If even the senior Senator from California, as stalwart an ally of the CIA and the National Security State as one is likely to find, was upset enough to make such a fuss about the Senate torture report then it had to be pretty awful.

A freight train carrying a whole column of American armored vehicles has been caught on camera in Latvia. Dalbe Railway Station, where the train was reportedly spotted several days ago, is less than 300km from the Russian border.

The train was carrying at least 38 vehicles and several semitrailers, including eight Bradley Fighting Vehicles, nine M113 Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), four petrol tankers, Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTTs), High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), an M88 Hercules Armory recovery vehicle, a couple of trucks, some tactical engineering and medical vehicles, at least four containers and a pair of railcars with ammunition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clearly the United States is about to provoke a war with Russia because they think that if they get a really nasty war going, the American people will forget all about NSA spying, torture, economic policy that saves Wall Street at the expense of the people, IRS abuses, lies, corruption, etc. They think that with enough blood, We The People will line up behind the American flag, give a sharp salute, and throw what remains of our money to the government and out children onto the designated enemy's bayonets.

Basically, the US is about to launch WW3 because they cannot think of any other way to save their own asses from the mountain of mistakes they have made.

And then maybe these two words, “Verschärfte Vernehmung”. As it happens, those two German words are straight out of the Gestapo’s own manual on torture.

Senator: Bush misled nation in run-up to Iraq war

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee released new information on Thursday that he claims is evidence that the Bush administration misled the nation in the run-up to the war in Iraq.

In a speech on the Senate floor, retiring Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., outlined a 2003 CIA cable that warns George W. Bush administration officials against making references to claims that Mohammad Atta - the man who led the 9/11 hijackers - met with an Iraqi intelligence officer in the Czech Republic before the Sept. 11, 2011, attacks. Levin claims Bush officials used the unconfirmed meeting to link Iraq to 9/11 to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All wars are started with lies. The people of the initiating nation do not want to go to war, as it is dirty, hard, dangerous, and ill-paid. No ruler dares come out and say, "Attack this other land because I want them attacked." Nobody would listen, or would demand a just share of the loot. Thus, the leaders who out of their own greed and lust for conquest must deceive the populace into thinking war is their only option, with frauds such as the Gleiwitz incident, torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, or 9-11.

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With all of America now aware that the US Government lied to them about the use of torture it is time to remind Americans of the other lies told by the US Government, including the lies used to trick us into war with Iraq. Every crippled veteran, every family member of a serviceman who died, should finally accept that those who were killed and crippled suffered only to make rich men richer. Where is the rage?

FALSE FLAG WARNING - Chicago A Top Terror Target; Ominous Tweet Connects ISIS Threat In City

Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now Washington DC is in a corner and desperate. The official confirmation of the use of torture on innocent victims has destroyed the moral authority of the United States. Foreign nations, who knew all along what was happening, but stayed silent for political reasons, are now free to vent their disdain openly.

DC needs a distraction. They need to refocus the public attention on war. They need, like Israel, to regain the victim status.

The defenders of the torture regime justify their actions on the basis of 9-11, and nothing would serve them better than a repeat right now in these last weeks before Christmas.

Hence, we are suddenly seeing all these stories about ISIS is already in America and ready to strike. FOX News ran a poll in which they reported 81% of Americans say ISIS will attack on US soil soon. No American actually knows what ISIS will do, outside of those US officials conducting this clandestine operation. But while prudent minds might balk at a new false-flag operation in a world where the public already distrusts the official story on anything, DC is desperate, and desperate animals take desperate chances!

Are Rush Limbaugh And Fox News Still Laughing About Torture?

Last spring, Palin appeared before an NRA convention crowd and laughed about how liberals supposedly coddle America's mortal adversaries. "Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen," said Palin. "Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists," The NRA audience roared with approval, but even some conservative commentators who saw the tape of Palin's wisecrack took offense, upset that she had linked bodily torture with a Christian sacrament. ("It's disgusting.")

Palin, of course, hardly stands alone among conservative media commentators who have spent years not only downplaying the grievous practice of torture adopted by the Bush administration, but who have routinely made light of the cruel tactic previously banned by the United States.

Obama Accepts Decision Not to Prosecute CIA Officers: White House

The real danger now is that DC feels boxed in. They have started a global war and know full well that if they lose, they will wind up doing the rope dance (or worse), which means they will be even more likely to resort to nuclear arms when they realize that a conventional war is unwinnable.

Udall urges CIA chief to resign for stifling torture probe

The 5 Most Damning Revelations From The CIA’s Report On Bush-Era Torture

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s extensive use of torture reveals that the agency regularly misled the White House and Congress about the information it had obtained from detainees and used techniques that are far more brutal than it — or former Bush administration officials — had previously acknowledged.

For instance, President George W. Bush insisted that “[t]his government does not torture people” and claimed that the intelligence it produced was instrumental to preventing terrorism on American soil and capturing high-value targets, including Osama bin Laden. But the Committee’s five year investigation — and examination of more than six million CIA documents — reveals all of those assertions to be false.

Congressional leaders were trying to hold the center in the run-up to Thursday’s government shutdown deadline, with Senate Democrats and House Republicans pleading for their troops to back a $1.1 trillion spending bill that had those on both extremes of the ideological spectrum fuming.

House Republican leaders touted dents to the Internal Revenue Service budget and Environmental Protection Agency staffing levels, language that stalls some of President Obama’s plans to battle climate change, and the chance to fight the White House’s deportation amnesty next year as reasons to get behind the massive 1,600-page bill.

Wherever you see any articles, posts, or blogs about raising the debt ceiling, please post the above graphic, or quote the following...

"The question Americans should be asking is not whether to raise the debt ceiling, but rather why the Federal Government, which is authorized by the Constitution to create and issue interest-free money, instead borrows that money at interest from a privately owned central bank, thereby plunging future generations into debt slavery to that bank? THAT is the real question Americans should be asking!"

Nuremberg Trials

Held for the purpose of bringing Nazi war criminals to justice, the Nuremberg trials were a series of 13 trials carried out in Nuremberg, Germany, between 1945 and 1949. The defendants, who included Nazi Party officials and high-ranking military officers along with German industrialists, lawyers and doctors, were indicted on such charges as crimes against peace and crimes against humanity. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) committed suicide and was never brought to trial. Although the legal justifications for the trials and their procedural innovations were controversial at the time, the Nuremberg trials are now regarded as a milestone toward the establishment of a permanent international court, and an important precedent for dealing with later instances of genocide and other crimes against humanity.

FLASHBACK 2009 - Rice dismisses torture claims

Condoleezza Rice, the former US secetary of State, has rejected claims she approved the use of torture when she was US national security adviser.

Rice, who held the positions under the administration of George Bush, the former US president, triggered controversy recently when she said at Stanford University that if torture techniques including waterboarding were authorized by Bush, then they were not illegal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Richard Nixon echoed that same sentiment; that if the President does something it is not a crime. That is, of course, contrary to the intentions of the Founding Fathers when they limited the authority of the Executive Branch to executing the will of the Congress, which in turn was supposed to represent the will of the people.

John Michael Greer: Dark Age America - The Sharp Edge of the Shell

Many of my readers will recall Bill Nye the Science Guy, the star of a television program on science in the 1990s and still a vocal and entertaining proponent of science education. In a recent interview, Nye was asked why he doesn’t support the happy-go-lucky attitude toward dumping genetically modified organisms into the environment that’s standard in the United States and a few other countries these days. His answer is that their impact on ecosystems is a significant issue that hasn’t been adequately addressed. Those who know their way around today’s pseudoskeptic scene won’t be surprised by the reaction from one of Discover Magazine’s bloggers: a tar and feathers party, more or less, full of the standard GMO industry talking points and little else.

Nye’s point, as it happens, is as sensible as it is scientific: ecosystems are complex wholes that can be thrown out of balance by relatively subtle shifts, and since human beings depend for their survival and prosperity on the products of natural ecosystems, avoiding unnecessary disruption to those systems is arguably a good idea. This eminently rational sort of thinking, though, is not welcomed in corporate boardrooms just now.

Shielding Israel’s Secret Nukes

You know something doesn’t wash when the contrary views are as overwhelmingly held as on this matter. The resolution passed on a vote of 161-5.

Neither Israel nor the United States says publicly that Israel has nuclear weapons, but just about everyone else in the world takes it as a given that it does, which would make it the only state in the Middle East that does.

The stated rationale for the United States casting last Tuesday one of the very lonely votes it sometimes casts at the United Nations General Assembly, on matters on which almost the entire world sees things differently, warrants some reflection.

The resolution in question this time endorsed the creation of a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East and called on Israel to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, to renounce any possession of nuclear weapons, and to put its nuclear facilities under the safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

In the June case, a minor child was killed in a car crash when a median barrier failed. The barrier had failed safety crash testing; the government knew but installed it anyway. When the plaintiff investigated, the government would not make federal employees — who knew the truth — available for deposition until after the two year deadline to file. The government now argues that equitable tolling should not apply to claims brought under the FTCA. It maintains that it can avoid liability by hiding evidence and waiting for the clock to run out.

The great lie of our time

In all International Relations (IR) classrooms throughout the English-speaking world, something called the democratic peace theory is taught. The theory holds that countries are less likely to go to war if they are democracies, and that installing democratic regimes is therefore the path to peace and security in the world. Paradoxically, the theory is more often applied to justify wars than to end them.

Democratic peace theory is a large part of the underlying rhetoric behind the United States’ commitment to “democratization” in the world’s conflict zones, particularly the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. While the US supplies arms to dictatorships it falsely labels “democracies,” it works to overthrow governments that were actually democratically elected.

The Five Dancing IsraelisArrested On 9-11

A Mossad surveillance team made quite a public spectacle of themselves on 9-11.
The New York Times reported Thursday that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating one another afterwards. (1)

Police received several calls from angry New Jersey residents claiming "middle-eastern" men with a white van were videotaping the disaster with shouts of joy and mockery. (2)

"They were like happy, you know … They didn't look shocked to me" said a witness. (3)
[T]hey were seen by New Jersey residents on Sept. 11 making fun of the World Trade Center ruins and going to extreme lengths to photograph themselves in front of the wreckage. (4)

Witnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park after the initial impact (5). Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot. (6)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News (among others) are trying to defend the commission of war crimes by the US Government by claiming that 9-11 justified the torture. So here is my question: Just how many ISRAELIS did the CIA torture to try to find the truth about 9-11?

OFF THE GRID: NINE CIA ‘BLACK SITES’ WHERE DETAINEES WERE TORTURED

Six days after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, President George W. Bush issued a directive allowing the CIA to secretly detain and interrogate prisoners at clandestine sites located around the world, cut off from communication with legal counsel, family, and everyone else. The locations of eight of these sites, along with descriptions of some of the deeply disturbing practices there, were included in today’s release of the so-called “torture report” — the heavily redacted executive summary of a senate committee study of the CIA’s Bush-era interrogation program.

Head fake? Obama never signed amnesty order

It’s common knowledge President Obama signed an executive order directing the Department of Homeland Security to forgive millions of illegal aliens for their past violations of immigration law, right?

Wrong.

Today the National Archives and Records Administration, responsible for maintaining such filings, said no such executive order was ever signed or filed, confirming WND’s report Wednesday.

A National Archives librarian, Jeffrey Hartley, made the confirmation in an email Thursday to WND.

“As I indicated, it would appear that there is not an Executive Order stemming from the President’s remarks on November 20 on immigration,” Hartley wrote.

Though Mr. Obama doesn’t want combat troops, he won’t have Congress tie his hands against unforeseen directions the war could take should the Islamic State evolve, expand its fight to other countries or prove more difficult to rout, Mr. Kerry said.

The CIA Torture Report Was Finally Released, and Boy, Is It Disturbing

The Senate Intelligence Committee has finally released a 500 page redacted version of the executive summary of its investigation of the CIA’s detention and interrogation program.

The 6,300 page report took four years to produce and is based on more than six million internal agency documents. The full report was not released due to security concerns raised by the CIA. Earlier this year, a compromise between the committee and the White House was reached to release the redacted version.

The findings revealed that the CIA's "interrogation techniques" were more brutal than we previously were told and were used more extensively.

Dec 09 16:47

Remember, CIA officer and whistleblower, John Kiriakou, is the only reason why we learned of waterboarding in the first place

Former CIA officer John Kiriakou is the only CIA employee connected to its interrogation program to go to prison. But he was prosecuted for providing information to reporters, not for anything connected to waterboarding or other actions that today’s Senate Intelligence Committee report calls “torture.” No other person connected to the program has been charged with a crime, after the Justice Department said their actions had been approved legally or that there was not sufficient admissible evidence in a couple cases of potential wrongdoing, even in light of the death of two detainees in the early 2000s.

President Obama Praises "Patriotic" Torturers, Says USA "Greatest Force For Human Dignity The World Has Ever Seen"

Throughout our history, the United States of America has done more than any other nation to stand up for freedom, democracy, and the inherent dignity and human rights of people around the world. As Americans, we owe a profound debt of gratitude to our fellow citizens who serve to keep us safe, among them the dedicated men and women of our intelligence community, including the Central Intelligence Agency. Since the horrific attacks of 9/11, these public servants have worked tirelessly to devastate core al Qaeda, deliver justice to Osama bin Laden, disrupt terrorist operations and thwart terrorist attacks. Solemn rows of stars on the Memorial Wall at the CIA honor those who have given their lives to protect ours. Our intelligence professionals are patriots, and we are safer because of their heroic service and sacrifices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pass me a bucket: I think I’m gonna hurl!!

OOPS: THE CIA MISTAKENLY TORTURED ITS OWN INFORMANTS

Among the many abuses the Senate Intelligence Committee found in its report on the CIA's torture program, perhaps one of the more embarrassing for the CIA is that the agency actually tortured its own informants at one point. In short, the CIA shackled two detainees for approximately 24 hours in a standing position to deprive them of sleep — only to find out that the detainees were former CIA contacts who tried to let the agency know of their activities so they could provide intelligence. So the CIA tortured two people who not only were not terrorists, but had been trying to help the CIA fight actual terrorists.

Just days before Thanksgiving, following months of threats and promises, President Barack Obama acted in a purely dictatorial manner to change immigration law and defer deportations for millions of illegal immigrants, effectively granting them amnesty.

OR DID HE?

Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been one of the many voices warning about Obama’s actions.

Now he has now taken the huge step of filing a lawsuit against Obama to stop the government from implementing his unconstitutional plan to bestow amnesty on certain illegals.

Now that the lawsuit has been filed, WND is reporting on a motion filed seeking a preliminary hearing to request an injunction against Obama’s executive branch, and the agencies that make it up, to prevent them from further engaging in implementation of Obama’s unilateral changes to immigration law.

Now Russia devises a new sweet deal with Turkey to bypass the “non-constructive” (Putin’s words) approach of the European Commission (EC) concerning the European “Third Energy Package”, which prohibits one company from controlling the full cycle of extraction, transportation and sale of energy resources.

Today, more than 20 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, there are many indications that Washington is slipping into a new and completely unnecessary confrontation with Moscow, only this time it is not being run largely out of sight by the CIA. Much of the new conflict is being conducted openly, with sanctions and resolutions by Congress, regular appearances in unstable regions overseas by senior state department officials and politicians, and trainings in new media political organizing funded by quasi non-governmental organizations like the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).

Including NATO members (Belgium and the Netherlands), a defacto NATO collaborator (Australia) and a potential culprit in the air disaster (Ukraine), Malaysia’s exclusion looked to be a part of an ongoing cover-up amid a larger attempt to use the disaster to frame Russia and advance NATO’s agenda in Eastern Europe.

House GOP Leaders Trick 206 Republicans Into Accidentally Supporting O's Executive Amnesty

In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber would envy—and they did it all in the name of pushing a bill that they told Republicans would block Obama’s executive amnesty.

The night before there was an amendment in the nature of a substitute to H.R. 5759—what that means is that it’s a new bill. It’s different but it’s going to substitute in its entirety the original bill. It had some of Yoho’s original language in it but they eliminated from the title the word “amnesty” and replaced it with “executive overreach.”

In his interview with RT’s Arabic Channel, the Sudanese president labeled Washington’s policies in Middle East and North Africa as “harmful and destructive.”

Last week the US House voted overwhelmingly in favor of an anti-Russia resolution so full of war propaganda that it rivals the rhetoric from chilliest era of the Cold War.

For example, one of the reasons to condemn Russia in the resolution is the claim that Russia is imposing economic sanctions on Ukraine. But how many rounds of sanctions has US government imposed on Russia for much of the past year? I guess sanctions are only bad when used by countries Washington doesn't like.

Fall 1941: Pearl Harbor and The Wars of Corporate America

Myth: The US was forced to declare war on Japan after a totally unexpected Japanese attack on the American naval base in Hawaii on December 7, 1941. On account of Japan’s alliance with Nazi Germany, this aggression automatically brought the US into the war against Germany.

Reality: The Roosevelt administration had been eager for some time to wage war against Japan and sought to unleash such a war by means of the institution of an oil embargo and other provocations. Having deciphered Japanese codes, Washington knew a Japanese fleet was on its way to Pearl Harbor, but welcomed the attack since a Japanese aggression would make it possible to “sell” the war to the overwhelmingly anti-war American public.

The Pearl Harbor Betrayal and James Forrestal’s Death

The following passage begins on page 167 and continues into page 168. The year is 1941 and the person sharing secrets with Trohan is President Roosevelt’s press secretary:

Steve [Early] confided to me that we knew every move the Japanese were making. This mental bell was to grow louder in tone in the months ahead. Steve repeated we knew every move as fast as it was made. Because of this knowledge, we had to return at once to Washington; war was imminent.

Pearl Harbor: A Successful War Lie

British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s fervent hope for years was that Japan would attack the United States. This would permit the United States (not legally, but politically) to fully enter the war in Europe, as its president wanted to do, as opposed to merely providing weaponry, as it had been doing. On April 28, 1941, Churchill wrote a secret directive to his war cabinet:

“It may be taken as almost certain that the entry of Japan into the war would be followed by the immediate entry of the United States on our side.”

On May 11, 1941, Robert Menzies, the prime minister of Australia, met with Roosevelt and found him “a little jealous” of Churchill’s place in the center of the war. While Roosevelt’s cabinet all wanted the United States to enter the war, Menzies found that Roosevelt,

Obama's Defense Nominee: Here Comes Trouble

Ashton Carter is the typical Beltway apparatchik – profiting from the revolving door between the military, heavy industry and academia.

He advised Goldman Sachs on military technology.

He was an actor in the dismantling of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, signed by Bill Clinton, which allowed a collection of Dr. Strangeloves to go rampant on computer simulated lab tests of nuclear weapons coupled with underground tests in the Nevada desert (plutonium blown up with explosives, for instance).

He was and remains a key actor in the ever evolving “policy” of demonization of Russia.

Way back in 1996, he was totally paranoid about both Iraq and Iran non-existent WMDs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have looked at this man's bio, which in "Washington-ese", is very impressive.

But what I do not see is any actual military experience indicating that he has ever, in his life, participated in real combat.

As someone with family which has served, and some which do currently serve in our military, the next time a Secretary of Defense is chosen, I want that person to have known real combat, from an in-the-trenches perspective.

I want them to know the cost of putting people's lives on the line, so this is not an abstraction to them.

And I want them to be keenly aware of choices and decisions this government can make which can get the geopolitical objectives won through peaceful means.

Ultimately, the rather clear case of excessive force and abuse of power by police – who were after Garner on a tax matter – will be mixed up in the larger national wave of increasingly racially divided politics.

The controversial decision comes only a week after the grand jury decision in the Michael Brown case, which led to riots, outrage and a media storm in Ferguson and beyond. However, the Brown case was much less clear cut, while video makes clear that Eric Garner was a victim who didn’t not deserve death. He did not resist arrest, and his alleged crime was too petty to cost him his life:

House votes to block Obama amnesty amid escalating constitutional clash

House Republicans rebuked President Obama Thursday over his deportation amnesty, voting almost exclusively along party lines to try to nullify his new policy, and further escalating what’s quickly become a full-blown constitutional crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, while newsworthy, worthless. Even if the Senate concurs on the Bill, Obama can veto it. The House lacks a veto-proof majority on this. The proper course of action Congress should take is impeachment, but that would put Biden in the White House with the advantage of being an incumbent going into 2016, which is why I predict the GOP will not consider impeachment and let the Democrats sink with the President for the next two years.

White House: Obama Was ‘Speaking Colloquially’ When He Admitted To Violating Constitution

Being White House Press Secretary these days seems to involve doing a lot of back peddaling and trying to persuade the nation that the President meant something completely different to what he actually said.

Such is the case once again this week as Josh Earnest attempted to convince the media that when Obama admitted last week that he was violating the Constitution by acting on his own to “change the law” on immigration, he didn’t literally mean he was changing the law.

Faced with pro-immigration hecklers during a speech in Chicago, a frustrated Obama asked them to stop yelling at him because “I just took an action to change the law,” on immigration.

Iran was elected to the 19-member committee in April for a four-year term from 2015.

Case in point: the Eastern European theater of (Cold) war, where Military.com reports that the new Army commander in Europe plans to bolster the U.S. armored presence in Poland and the Baltic states and keep rotations of U.S. troops there through next year and possibly beyond to counter Russia. Lt. Gen. Frederick "Ben" Hodges, who replaced Lt. Gen. Donald M.

White House stumbles explaining soap opera producer as ambassador

Asked at the daily press briefing what makes "The Bold and The Beautiful" producer Colleen Bell qualified to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, White House spokesman Josh Earnest didn't exactly have an explanation.

"(She's) somebody who obviously has succeeded in, you know, in the business world," Earnest said.

"And she is somebody that the President has confidence will be able to maintain our relationship with the government and the people of Hungary."

Earnest also denied that Bell's hand in raising millions of dollars for the President's re-election campaign had anything to do with her appointment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During my time in Hollywood I met a lot of producers. Some were pretty sharp. Others were producers only because of family or romantic ties, investing their own money, or they were MOCKINGBIRD assets. I have never met Colleen Bell and have no idea what kind of person she is, and being that an ambassador is generally a glorified messenger, stripped of plenipotentiary powers in this age of instant global communication, she might actually be up to the job. That being said, politics is perception and it does look like Obama is going to spend his last years in office handing out goodies to his campaign fundraisers, which is hardly a new practice. Without casting aspersions on Colleen Bell, this looks about as reasonable a decision on Obama's part as when Caligula appointed his horse to the Roman Senate!

ObamaCare incentivizes hiring amnestied illegals to the tune of $3000 each

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about ObamaCare - aside from the fact that it’s an abject disaster in terms of meeting its stated goals - it’s that the unintended consequences of its passage just keep piling up. Sure, conservatives warned of the chaos that would stem from the Dems’ “signature legislation,” but even those of us who were sounding the alarm are amazed at how it keeps managing to fail in new, exciting, ways.

Today we’re learning that the law actually incentivizes corporations to hire the millions of illegals who are currently enjoying Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty order - instead of hiring actual, legal, U.S. citizens. In fact, under the ACA, companies who hire an amnestied illegal can dodge a $3,000 penalty that they would have had to pay if they’d hired a citizen.

In fact, earlier this month I highlighted an article from the Guardian that demonstrated how in reality drone strikes are 10x more likely to harm civilians per incident. Now, thanks to a recently leaked document we find that many more civilians including children have been killed in these strikes than many of us would like to admit. In fact, of the 746 people killed in drone strikes in Pakistan from 2006-2009, an incredible 20% were civilians and 94 (13% of the total) were children.

President set to sign immigrant plan in Las Vegas

President Barack Obama is traveling to Las Vegas on Friday to sign an executive order that would offer temporary legal status to millions of immigrants who are in the country illegally and set off a new fight with Republicans in Congress.

Obama plans to speak at Del Sol High School, which he first visited as a presidential candidate in 2008 and where he first laid out a broad immigration plan in January 2013.

This time he will be arriving in Las Vegas to deliver at least part of his promise for reform, and will renew a challenge to the new GOP majorities in Congress to pass an immigration bill if they don’t like it, White House officials said.

Obama, in a video released on Facebook, said he would make a nationally televised announcement on immigration from the White House at 8 p.m. EST today, then would go to Las Vegas to promote the plan Friday. Del Sol High is in a largely Hispanic neighborhood east of McCarran International Airport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Funny how Eisenhower was able to completely stop the illegal immigrants with only 1/10th the border patrol agents Obama has! What is broken about immigration is actually enforcing the laws and THAT is the responsibility of the White House. It is called the Executive Branch because under the Constitution, the President executes the will of the Congress. Clearly, with regards to enforcing the immigration laws, it is the President who has failed, not the Congress. But, sadly, we have a President who appears to be suffering from narcissistic personality disorder, unable to admit when he is wrong (just look at Obamacare) and hence will exceed his lawful authority to create new laws to cover up his ineptitude at enforcing the will of the Congress and the American people.

This Is What Is Really Taking Place Behind The Scenes Of The Second US-Russian Cold War

It appears John Kerry is at it again. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the US Secretary of State called on him to "pay no mind" to a statement by President Obama, in which Russia was included to a list of top global threats. Seeking Russia's cooperation in Iran and on the Korean Peninsula, Kerry told Lavrov to "forget about" what Obama said. As US foreign policy credibility dissolves, we leave it to Lavrov to conclude, "it is flippant," he jabs, "it’s not appropriate for a powerful country to have such a consumer attitude to its partners - where you’re needed, help us; where you’re not, obey us."

Jeb Bush meets with major Wall Street donors to prepare for potential 2016 presidential run

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is quietly meeting with major Wall Street donors in New York to line up financial backing for a potential 2016 presidential run, people familiar with his plans said.

A finance industry executive said Bush was at a downtown Manhattan bank Monday, his fifth visit to the city since June. The source declined to name the bank, saying the sitdown was confidential.

Bush has said he is considering a run, and supporters, including his younger brother, former President George W. Bush, say Jeb is undecided.

CONGRESSMAN PROPOSES "MOAT" AROUND WHITEHOUSE, SECRET SERVICE DIRECTOR CONFIRMS "MAY BE GOOD IDEA"

Faced with an increasing number of White House intrusions that led to the resignation of a Secret Service director, a congressman on Wednesday suggested that maybe a moat should be erected around the president’s home.

The suggestion was made by Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, at a House Judiciary Committee hearing.

With hand gestures, Cohen suggested a moat roughly six-feet wide may be “attractive” and “effective.”

‘Thinking politically:’ Former colleagues decry Obama as opportunist on immigration

For Mr. Obama, immigration has usually been a political issue first, according to those like Mr. del Valle who have worked with him on the issue dating back to his days in Illinois as a state senator and later a U.S. senator. Some describe him as cautious, while others question how deep his commitment runs to the immigrants whose fate now rests with him.

FLASHBACK - The Latest Heist: US Quietly Snatches the Ukraine’s Gold Reserves

According to reports out of Kiev (see links below), the US has quietly transfers 33 tons of Ukrainian gold out of the country and back to vaults in the US. Presumably, this sovereign wealth transfer would be counted as partial “collateral” for a fresh round of IMF, US FED, and ECB paper debt that is currently being organised for dumping into the Ukraine’s economic black hole.

Multiple inquiries to US Federal Reserve administrators into the location of the Ukraine’s gold have been met with the proverbial ‘pass the buck’, making tracking and tracking the final resting place of these 33 tonnes very difficult indeed – but one can expect that the NY Fed is probably the institution who has masterminded this financial heist.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ukraine announced this week that they are almost out of gold. Where did it go? This story from last March points the finger at the US!

One Reader's Shocked Response Upon Learning His Health Insurance Cost Just Doubled

After spending months trying to register for the ACA in late 2013 and early 2014 my kids got put on our state's insurance (at "no cost") and my wife and I bagged an ACA policy at a subsidized cost of $281 per month with a total out of pocket of about $6500 (just for the two of us).

Attached is the ACA notification of next year's price increase. As you can see the cost goes from $281 to $555, a monthly increase of $274, a percentage increase of 97%.

Basically we are now paying the same amount for the two of us that we paid for all four of us one year ago.

University of Rhode Island deletes video of Jonathan Gruber talking about Obamacare deception

“URI has deleted an embarrassing Gruber video while leaving a broken embed on their site – a real ‘stupid American voter’ move,” American Commitment’s Phil Kerpen, who flagged the video’s removal, told The Daily Caller. “I hope that URI will be shamed into reposting the video as Penn was last week when they did the same thing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shame on these "institutions of higher learning" that they knuckled under to Whitte House pressure to delete the videos. Not that it matters any longer. Closing the barn door is pointless (and attracts attention). The horse is out of the barn, even with his hoof in his mouth!

Obama team lays groundwork to justify letting millions of illegal immigrants stay

Confronted with President Obama’s previous statements that a blanket waiver of deportations “would be difficult to defend legally,” the White House tried Tuesday to justify President Obama’s pending executive action to grant legal status to millions of illegal immigrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Congress lets Obama get away with changing the immigration laws, then there will be no stopping Obama from using executive orders to ban guns, silence the independent media, force a carbon tax on all of us, etc.

But...

While preparing to give de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, the Obama immigration officials refused to renew the work visa for National Basketball Association player Gal Mekel who hails from Israel and is currently viewed as a valuable NBA free agent, according to officials from the Indiana Pacers basketball team.

New video shows Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber agreeing that states' opposition to massive Medicaid expansion may be race-related

The hits just keep coming for MIT economics professor Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare architect under fire for his controversial statements about the health care reform law.

Video unearthed today by veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler shows Gruber agreeing that states' opposition to the Medicaid expansion dictated by the federal health law may be race-related.

He also claimed states that rejected federal funds for Medicaid wanted 'to punish poor people,' which he said 'really is just almost awesome in its evilness.'

Obama "Would Order" US troops into Combat if ISIS Got Nuclear Weapons

Considering all the spin regarding ISIS goading the NATO nations into attacking them... this headline just screams -FALSE FLAG - to me.

Why on earth would Obama make such an absurd statement unless the masses are being set up for some sort of perception managed psychological operation, that has yet to be unleashed?
When one reads what Obama says.... he set the bar low. I mean quite low.
ISIS won't have to use a weapon.

It just has to be alleged that ISIS possesses some sort of nuclear weapon

AG Nominee Loretta Lynch Boasts Having Seized $904 Million Through Asset Forfeitures in 2013 Alone

In light of the fact that President Obama's Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch recently announced that, as US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, her office took more than $904 million worth of private property from citizens through asset forfeitures, questions are being raised as to whether civil asset forfeitures, called "policing for profit" by critics, will continue to rise if she ends up being confirmed as Attorney General.

What did the Brisbane G-20 summit accomplish?

President Barack Obama was equally effusive, saying the gathering was not a “chinwag,” an Australian word for meaningless talk. Rather, he said, “it has been a good week for American leadership.” At a press conference, Obama listed expanding trade, a visa accord with China, and “a big advance on climate change” as tangible achievements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the headline accomplishment is a deal to take seriously a problem that was made up in the first place. Left unsaid in this article is the agreement by the G20 to consider bank savings accounts as investments in the bank, subject to loss if the bank gets into trouble.

Stand Up - Claire Rivero's ode to Obamacare!
