Mistrial Declared In Menendez Corruption Trial, As Jury Deadlocks

A mistrial was declared in the bribery, conspiracy and fraud trial of Senator Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey), as the 12-person jury deadlocked on all 18 counts against the Senator and his co-defendant following the 11-week trial.

Newark, New Jersey US District Court Judge William H. Walls declared a mistrial Thursday following a 15-hour jury deliberation. Federal prosecutors have not stated whether or not they will retry Menendez, 63, and co-defendant Salomon Melgen, 63, a wealthy Florida eye doctor and friend of Menendez, on federal charges of bribery, conspiracy and fraud that were brought against them in the case, the North Jersey Media Group reported.

Gloria Allred: ‘I Haven’t Asked’ Beverly Young Nelson If She Saw Roy Moore Sign Her Yearbook

Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson, said she had not asked her client if she saw Moore sign her yearbook.

Questions had been raised by the Moore campaign a day earlier at a press conference in Birmingham, AL about the authenticity of the signature, which Allred had held up as evidence to bolster Young’s claim against Moore.

Roy Moore’s lawyer says that the bizarre yearbook inscription is forged – here’s why

“And then finally, after Judge Moore’s signature it has the initials capital D period, A period,” he continued. “Remember when I told you about that ’99 divorce action? Judge Moore looked at that “D.A.” after his signature which they allege was because he was the district attorney, well he wasn’t, he was the assistant district attorney.”

“But Judge Moore says he can’t ever remember signing his name with “D.A.” after it, but he had seen it before,” he explained. “You know where he had seen it? When he was on the bench, his assistant, whose initials are capital D period, A period, Delber Adams, would stamp his signature on documents and then put capital D period, A period. That’s exactly how the signature appears on the divorce decree that Judge Moore signed, dismissing the divorce action with Ms. Nelson.”

Deception and Ruses Fill the Toolkit of Investigators Used by Weinstein

Law firms routinely use private investigators to collect information to help them argue civil and criminal cases in and out of court. These investigators sometimes use deception and elaborate ruses to root out secrets or private information. Black Cube’s work for Mr. Weinstein, and the cinematic scenarios it created with its fabricated job interviews in London, provides a rare look at the lengths some firms will go to, using tradecraft that pushes the boundaries.

The Pentagon Has Avoided Audit for 27 Years

Not sure where your tax dollars are going? Nobody really is.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Representatives passed a Pentagon budget that called for $700 billion in defense spending—more than what even the Trump administration had asked for, and tens of billions more than the current defense spending caps. To achieve this budget, which is expected to sail through the Senate after the Thanksgiving break, Congress will have to raise the caps set into place during the Budget Control Act. But if there is a will—which there certainly is, considering the powerful defense industry lobby, coupled with members’ own special interests for their districts—there is a way.

But how indeed does this money get spent? An open secret in Washington is that the Pentagon, by far the largest if not most byzantine agency in the federal government, has never been audited>>>

The Adventures of Creepy Joe Biden: Serial Young Girl-Toucher

As I wrote on Wednesday, the biggest media hoax going right now is this sudden contrition over the shielding of Bill Clinton for 25 years against numerous allegations that ranged from sexual harassment to flat-out rape.

There are two reasons we know this is just another fake news wave of media BS. The first is that this very same media is right now shielding Democrat Senator Bob Menendez from the allegations he had sex with underage prostitutes. The second is creepy Joe Biden, the serial young girl-toucher.

MSNBC Rips Fellow Democrat Gloria Allred for Possibly Tainting Moore Accusations

We love it when the Left eats its own. On Wednesday, it was bon apetit family style, as MSNBC’s MTP Daily tore into notorious ambulance chaser Gloria Allred.

The feast on feminist Allred was due to her representing Beverly Young Nelson, accuser of Alabama Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore. Young has charged that Moore assaulted her in a parked car when he was District Attorney of Etowah County and she was a waitress at a local restaurant. The alleged incident occurred 40 years ago, when she was 16 and he was in this thirties. Moore has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, saying, “I never did what she said I did…I don’t even know the woman. I don’t know anything about her.” Moore’s attorney, along with Alabama Republicans, held a press conference Wednesday in support of Moore and in an attempt to discredit Young's claims.

Fox News Viewers Demand Shep Smith be Fired After Error-Filled Uranium One Report: ‘Send Him to CNN’

In the wake of Fox News anchor Shepard Smith’s six-minute fallacy-filled Uranium One “fact check” rant on Tuesday, social media is brimming with enraged Fox viewers calling for the network to dump the longtime host and “send him to CNN.”

Several left-wing and establishment media outlets reported some of the more searing social media screeds from fans of Fox, many of whom wished the cabler would part ways with its liberal broadcaster.

Trump Derangement Syndrom (TDS) has driven six Democrats over the edge

The Trump Derangement Syndrom (TDS) has driven six Democrats so far over the edge that they have filed impeachment articles against President Trump. The Articles of the Constitution calls for impeachment of a President (among others) for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. That is a very high bar for these Democrats to leap over. What proof have they of anything on this scale?

A group of Democrats on Wednesday announced that they would be filing multiple articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, marking the most significant push to remove the president from office. The move was led by Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee, who first declared his intention to initiate the impeachment process following Trump’s controversial “both sides” remarks in response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

EXCLUSIVE – Mother of Roy Moore Accuser Contradicts Key Detail of Daughter’s Sexual Misconduct Story

Speaking by phone to Breitbart News on Saturday, Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71, says that her daughter did not have a phone in her bedroom during the period that Moore is reported to have allegedly called Corfman – purportedly on Corfman’s bedroom phone – to arrange at least one encounter.

Moore strongly denies Corfman’s claims.

The Washington Post, which first published its newsmaking, on-the-record interview with Corfman last week, cited Corfman as remembering that she provided Moore with her number when she was 14. She said that she spoke to Moore from what she described as the phone in her bedroom.

ALASKANS QUIETLY TOLD TO PREPARE FOR A NORTH KOREAN ATTACK

By now everyone is tired of threats from North Korea and the attention of the public has been diverted to other more “important” things, such as sexual harassment charges in Hollywood, against members of Congress, and against every man alive in the Continental U.S. The public is still focused on GQ’s “Man of the Year,” Colin Kaepernick, and the who the new “front man” is for the band Stone Temple Pilots.

Once again, the North Korean threat has been downplayed and deflected. So, how about in Alaska? Not quite the case there, according to an article in the Mirror entitled “Alaska urged to prepare for North Korean nuclear attack as residents told to have emergency stash of food and water,” by Michael Havis on 11/15/17. Here is an excerpt from that article:

“Alaska is being urged to prepare for a North Korean nuclear attack – amid fears that a warhead could reach residents in 20 minutes.”

FACT-CHECK: Shep Smith’s Fake ‘Debunking’ of Uranium One Story Ends in Humiliation, Embarrassment

Fox News’ Shepard Smith drew applause from liberal media outlets Tuesday in a “fact check” marred with mispronunciations and misrepresentations.
Smith, one of Fox’s top liberals and who frequently opposes the network’s narratives, spoke at length on his show Shepard Smith Reports after Attorney General Jeff Sessions floated the idea of a special counsel to investigate recent revelations surrounding the 2010 partial sale of Canadian firm Uranium One to Russian energy giant Rosatom. The sale was approved by the Obama administration as it included the sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to the Russian giant.

Alaska Prepares For War With North Korea: Missiles Will Take Only 20 Minutes To Reach The State - Mac Slavo

The state of Alaska is preparing for a potential war with North Korea. The Alaskans are being urged not to evacuate, though should Kim Jong-Un launch a missile toward Alaska, it would only take 20 minutes to get there.

Emergency planners in Alaska have warned it will not attempt evacuations if a warhead is fired because time would not be on their side. Jeremy Zidek, from the state’s disaster planning team, will urge locals to find shelter rather than risk being caught in the open. He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios, and medical supplies including the anti-radiation pill Prussian Blue – medication that lessens the radiological impacts on your body.

The Last Time These 3 Ominous Signals Appeared Simultaneously Was Just Before The Last Financial Crisis - Michael Snyder

We have not seen a “leadership reversal”, a “Hindenburg Omen” and a “Titanic Syndrome signal” all appear simultaneously since just before the last financial crisis. Does this mean that a stock market crash is imminent? Not necessarily, but as I have been writing about quite a bit recently, the markets are certainly primed for one. On Wednesday, the Dow fell another 138 points, and that represented the largest single day decline that we have seen since September. Much more importantly, the downward trend that has been developing over the past week appears to be accelerating. Just take a look at this chart. Could we be right on the precipice of a major move to the downside?

John Hussman certainly seems to think so. He is the one that pointed out that we have not seen this sort of a threefold sell signal since just before the last financial crisis. The following comes from Business Insider…

Identity of Secret Informant In FBI’s Clinton Probe Unveiled

More information about the Congressional probes into the Obama-era Uranium One deal leaked out Thursday when Reuters reported that Senate Republicans say their investigation into the Clinton’s role in approving the deal largely hinges on the testimony of a secret informant who was until recently the subject of a federal gag order.

But a month after Trump asked the DOJ to lift the gag order - a command that the DOJ promptly obeyed - the man has decided to speak out publicly for the first time in an interview with Reuters.

His name is Christopher Campbell, and was formerly a lobbyist for Tenex, the US-based arm of Rosatom, the Russian government’s nuclear agency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sure hope to heck this guy doesn't "get depressed", or start flying in small airplanes; I would imagine that his testimony will be the lynchpin for any possible indictment of Hillary Clinton.

Saudi Arabia Offers Arrested Royals A Deal: Your Freedom For Lots Of Cash

As we noted shortly after the Crown Prince’s purge of potential rivals within Saudi Arabia’s sprawling ruling family, while the dozens of arrests were made under the pretext of an "anti-corruption crackdown", Mohammed bin Salman’s ulterior motive was something else entirely: Replenishing the Kingdom’s depleted foreign reserves, which have been hammered for the past three years by low oil prices, with some estimating that the current purge could potentially bring in up to $800 billion in proceeds.

Furthermore, the geopolitical turmoil unleashed by the unprecedented crackdown helped push oil prices higher, creating an ancillary benefit for both the kingdom’s rulers and the upcoming IPO of Aramco.

And, in the latest confirmation that the crackdown was all about cash, the Financial Times reports today that the Saudi government has offered the new occupants of the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton a way out.... and it’s going to cost them: In some cases, as much as 70% of their net worth.

Israel is ready to share intelligence on Iran with Saudi Arabia – IDF chief

The chief of staff of Israel's military (IDF) told Saudi Alaf newspaper in an unprecedented interview that his country is ready to share intelligence on Iran with Riyadh.
"With President Donald Trump, there is an opportunity for a new international alliance in the region and a major strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat," Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) told the paper. "We are ready to exchange experiences with moderate Arab countries and exchange intelligence to confront Iran."

When asked whether Israel has recently share intelligence with Saudi Arabia, Eisenkot responded by saying: "We are ready to share information if necessary. There are many common interests between us..."

Revealed – Saudis Plan to Give Up Palestine – For War on Iran

The left-wing Lebanese paper Al-Akhbar has obtained a copy of the plan (Arabic) in form of a memorandum by the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir to the Saudi clown prince Mohammed Bin Salman (English machine translation):

The document, which is being unveiled for the first time, proves all that has been leaked since President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia last May on the launch of US efforts to sign a peace treaty between Saudi Arabia and Israel. This was followed by information on the exchange of visits between Riyadh and Tel Aviv, the most important being the visit of the Saudi Crown Prince to the Zionist entity.The document reveals the size of concessions that Riyadh intends to present in the context of the liquidation of the Palestinian issue, and its concern to get in return the elements of power against Iran and the resistance, led by Hezbollah.

The Saudi foreign ministry memo starts by laying out its strategic perspective:

Bahrain says deadly bus attack engineered by Iran

Bahrain said on Wednesday a bomb attack on a police bus which killed an officer and wounded nine last month was carried out by a militant cell trained by its arch-foe Iran.

After authorities quashed Shi‘ite Muslim-led ”Arab Spring” protests on the Sunni-ruled island in 2011, militants have launched deadly bombing and shooting attacks against security forces that Bahrain blames on Tehran’s Shi‘ite theocracy.

Iran denies any role in Bahrain’s unrest.

There was no immediate Iranian reaction to Wednesday’s Bahraini interior ministry statement, which added that authorities had arrested one member of the cell while others were fugitives in Iran.

“The terrorist cell received extensive training in Iranian Revolutionary Guard camps on the use and manufacture of explosives and firearms, as well as material and logistical support,” the ministry said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the Sunni government of Bahrain, with a human rights record just to the right of that of Attila the Hun, couldn't possibly have any of its predominanly Shiite population be the least bit upset, whatsoever, at its complete repression of its citizens' basic human rights, could it?!?

The Bahrainis LOVE their government, particularly as it tortures confessions out of peaceful protestors who are simply asking for a constitutional monarchy; throws them into prisons for inordinantely long sentences for crimes they did not commit; and denies their humanity, simply because they practice a different version of Islam than that of the Al Khalifa monarchy.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong here, with these horrifically lousy situations, except everything?!?

Looks as though geopolitically, when in doubt these days, and people don't want to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions, the game here is, blame Iran, or blame Russia!!

China sending special envoy to North Korea days after Trump's visit

Following President Trump’s visit to Beijing, China said Wednesday that it would send a high-level special envoy to North Korea amid an extended chill in relations between the neighbors over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.

Song Tao, the head of China’s ruling Communist Party’s International Department, will travel to Pyongyang on Friday to report on outcomes of the party’s national congress held last month, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Xinhua said Song, as president and party leader Xi Jinping’s special envoy, would carry out a “visit” in addition to delivering his report, but gave no details about his itinerary or meetings. It also made no mention of Trump’s trip to Beijing or the North’s weapons programs, although Trump has repeatedly called on Beijing to do more to use its influence to pressure Pyongyang into altering its behavior.

17 million in Yemen need food - now hospitals and water pumps will run out of fuel in three weeks

THE UNITED NATIONS warned today that fuel supplies needed to run Yemen’s hospital generators and pump clean water will run out in less than three weeks unless the Saudi-led coalition lifts its blockade.
The dire forecast came as Yemen battles one of the world’s worst outbreaks of cholera, with nearly one million people infected. Some 2,200 people have died.
Adding to the woes of aid workers on the ground, stocks of diphtheria vaccines will be emptied in two weeks unless aid deliveries are once again allowed in the country, UN spokesman Farhan Haq said.

The Saudi-led military coalition shut down Yemen’s sea and air ports as well as borders on 6 November in response to a missile attack by the Iran-backed Huthi rebels near Riyadh.

UN aid chief Mark Lowcock warned last week that unless the blockade was lifted, Yemen will face “the largest famine the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims.”

You have to understand; this is precisely the outcome the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, wants to see happen; a Yemeni genocide, courtesy of massive malnutrition and disease.

US to Continue Refueling Saudi Warplanes During Yemen Attacks

The US Air Force plans to keep refueling Saudi Arabian warplanes committing atrocities in Yemen that have led to the world’s most pressing humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations.
The US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in support of House Resolution 599 Monday, passing the measure by a vote of 366-30. The bipartisan bill does not prevent US tankers from providing fuel to Saudi warplanes but does call for a political solution to the crisis, which House Democrats apparently saw as a compromise.

People stand at the site of an airstrike which witnesses said was by Saudi-led coalition aircraft on mourners at a hall where a wake for the father of Jalal al-Roweishan, the interior minister in the Houthi-dominated Yemeni government, was being held, in Sanaa, Yemen October 8, 2016

It is financially very profitable for the US merchants of death to continue to supply Saudi Arabia with the bombs and bullets which kill, and maim for life, innocent infants, toddlers, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

These same corporations, the heads of which have all had their consciences surgically removed before taking office, contribute generously to both parties, so why shouldn't the assassinations of Yemeni innocents continue, as long as they are profitable?!? That is the only thing that matters anymore in American society, profitability, right?!?

Here is what that "profitability" is looking like to Yemeni kids these days:

Images: Yemeni children, killed or maimed for life from Saudi bombings

More images: Yemeni Children being killed and maimed for life from Saudi Bombings

Mitchell assures Poroshenko about U.S. readiness to increase price for Moscow if aggression continues

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has met with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Aaron Wess Mitchell. The men discussed a wide variety of issues about bilateral Ukraine-U.S. ties, including efforts to support Ukraine in restoring its territorial integrity.

"Mitchell confirmed readiness to continue supporting efforts of Ukraine to restore its sovereignty and territorial integrity and, if necessary, to raise the price Moscow would pay for continuing aggression against the Ukrainian state," the Ukrainian president's website said on Wednesday.

"The sides emphasized the importance of new approaches and bold initiatives for the fleshing out of the strategic partnership between Ukraine and the United States - from the enhanced interaction in politics, trade, economy and energy to the strengthening of the partnership between the countries in the area of defense and security," the press service said.

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

The article goes on to state:

"US President Barack Obama revealed the United States’ involvement in the Ukrainian crisis from its outset and admitted that the United States “had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine.”

US President Barack Obama’s recent interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakiria reveals the United States’ involvement in the Ukrainian crisis from its outset and that the country worked directly with Ukrainian right-wing fascist groups, experts told Sputnik.

On Sunday, in his interview with CNN, Obama admitted that the United States “had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine.”

“Obama’s statement is reiterating something that the world public opinion already knew — the US was involved in the coup of [ex-Ukrainian President] Viktor Yanukovych from the start. History shows us that the US has overthrown numerous governments in Latin America, Asia and Africa and replaced them with leaders that ruled with a fascist ideology that proved useful for Washington’s geopolitical interests,” independent researcher and writer Timothy Alexander Guzman told Sputnik.

Yanukovych’s decision to not sign an association agreement with the European Union in late 2013 triggered a mass wave of protests across Ukraine, culminating in the February 2014 coup. Following the transition of power, Kiev forces launched a military operation against those who refused to recognize the legitimacy of the new government."

What Crimea did, when they understood that there was no more legitimate government in Kiev, was to hold a referendum, asking its people if they wanted to stay with the regime-changed Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to become a member. Overwhelmlingly, in a free and fair referendum, they voted to petition the Russian Federation to become a member, and the Russian Federation accepted their request.

There was no "Russian annexation of Crimea" whatsoever; but the Crimean referendum was never accepted by the US or the West, hence, Russia got, and continues to get, punished for something it never did, period, end of discussion.

How China is defining the way governments manipulate their people via the internet

CHINA’S army of keyboard propagandists have set the standard for manipulating public opinion online — and a growing number of countries are trying the emulate the model.
The iconic image of a man holding his shopping while obstructing the path of a tank in China’s Tiananmen Square in 1989 became the defining image of China’s censorial government. But in the age of the internet, social media has become the front line in the Communist Party’s battle to control and suppress dissent.
The goverment’s so called keyboard army overwhelms social media sites with positive stories about the Communist Party — described by researchers as “cheerleading content” — to control the message and drown out criticism and negative stories about the regime.
The unofficial wing of the Chinese government responsible for the program is known as The 50 Cent Party. It allows just enough critical content to maintain the illusion of dissent while diverting attention towards positive propaganda.

DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE COMPANY PAID MERCENARIES TO BUILD CONSPIRACY LAWSUIT AGAINST ENVIRONMENTALISTS

THE PRIVATE SECURITY firm TigerSwan, hired by Energy Transfer Partners to protect the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, was paid to gather information for what would become a sprawling conspiracy lawsuit accusing environmentalist groups of inciting the anti-pipeline protests in an effort to increase donations, three former TigerSwan contractors told The Intercept.

For months, a conference room wall at TigerSwan’s Apex, North Carolina, headquarters was covered with a web-like map of funding nodes the firm believed it had uncovered — linking billionaire backers to nonprofit organizations to pipeline opponents protesting at Standing Rock. It was a “showpiece” for board members and ETP executives, according to a former TigerSwan contractor — part of a project that had little to do with the pipeline’s physical security.

ISIS-linked propaganda poster threatens Christmas attack on the Vatican

An Islamic State-linked group has allegedly vowed to launch a Christmas terrorist attack on the Vatican. A propaganda poster depicted a jihadist driving a car at high speed towards St. Peter’s Basilica.

The menacing poster was released by the pro-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) group known as Wafa Media Foundation. It was revealed on Tuesday by the SITE Intelligence Group, a Maryland-based company that tracks the online activity of the extremist organization. The words at the top of the poster, written in red, warn that the attack will take place at Christmas.

Mother of convicted ‘Boston Bomber’ says FBI framed sons, Americans the ‘real terrorists’

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been convicted on all 30 counts relating to his alleged involvement in the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Dzhokhar and his deceased brother Tamerlan were accused of organizing and executing the attack which claimed the lives of three people and wounded hundreds of others.

But like most ‘official stories,’ the Boston Bombing is replete with holes and oddities which do not conform with the US government’s narrative.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of the alleged bombers, has accused the FBI of framing her sons for the attack. From the beginning, she has held that her sons are innocent and that the FBI itself is responsible for the bombing in Boston, using “fake blood” and crisis actors. “I am 100 percent sure this is a set up,” she told Russia Today, adding that the FBI had been watching and “controlling” her sons for several years preceding the attack in 2013.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, the top international body overseeing anti-drug efforts in sports, has ruled that Russia remains “non-compliant” with its code, harming the country’s chances of competing in the Winter Olympics this February in South Korea.

At a meeting in South Korea’s capital on Thursday, WADA announced that it was unable to reinstate Russia’s national anti-doping agency, RUSADA, which was suspended after Russia was found to have run a massive state-sponsored coverup of doping by its athletes. Russia was subsequently partially barred from the Summer Olympics and entirely from the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

Although the group itself masquerades as an apolitical NGO with absolutely no connections to the so-called “armed Syrian opposition” or any of the jihadist groups, this apparently isn’t the case.

For instance, we have documented that the most recent accuser, Beverly Nelson, was a party in a divorce action before me in Etowah County Circuit Court in 1999. No motion was made for me to recuse. In her accusations, Nelson did not mention that I was the judge assigned to her divorce case in 1999, a matter that apparently caused her no distress at a time that was 18 years closer to the alleged assault. Yet 18 years later, while talking before the cameras about the supposed assault, she seemingly could not contain her emotions.

A New Enemy? Push Begins to Reclassify China’s Xinhua as a Foreign Agent

How to Instantly Prove (Or Disprove) Russian Hacking of U.S. Election

It’s newsworthy that CIA head Mike Pompeo recently met with Bill Binney – who designed the NSA’s electronic surveillance system – about potential proof that the DNC emails were leaked rather than hacked.

It’s also noteworthy that the usual suspects – Neocon warmongers such as Max Boot – have tried to discredit both Binney and Pompeo.

But there’s a huge part of the story that the entire mainstream media is missing …

Specifically, Binney says that the NSA has long had in its computers information which can prove exactly who hacked the DNC … or instead prove that the DNC emails were leaked by a Democratic insider.

Remember – by way of background – that the NSA basically spies on everyone in America … and stores the data long-term.

FBI gave Clinton email investigation ‘special’ status, deputy director’s email shows

Shortly before last year’s election, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote an email on his official government account stating that the Hillary Clinton email probe had been given “special” status, according to documents released Wednesday.

McCabe’s Oct. 23, 2016, email to press officials in the FBI said the probe was under the control of a small group of high-ranking people at the FBI’s headquarters in Washington.

“As I now know the decision was made to investigate it at HQ with a small team,” McCabe wrote in the email. He said he had no input when the Clinton email investigation started in summer 2015, while he was serving as assistant director in charge of the FBI's Washington office.

AEGIS Fail in Black SEA, Ruskies Burn Down USS Donald “Duck”

(Note: Article is from November 13, 2014, Veterans Today website.)

"After the incident, the foreign media reported that “Donald Cook” was rushed into a port in Romania. There all the 27 members of the crew filed a letter of resignation. It seems that all 27 people have written that they are not going to risk their lives. This is indirectly confirmed by the Pentagon statement according to which the action demoralized the crew of the American ship."

Dr Marcus Papadopoulos discussing whether RT is a foreign agent.
According to the US Department of Justice, RT – this channel – is an agent of a foreign, even hostile, power. All the while, the DOJ refuses to explain why this is the case or even cite what laws we may have broken. But something else is in play: critics warn RT is a test case for a wider campaign of media suppression.

Retired FBI Agent Accuses 9/11 Commission of Lying About Saudi Connections

By Derrick Broze

Sworn testimony from a former FBI investigator claims the 9/11 Commission lied to the American public regarding the relationship between the hijackers and Saudi Arabia.

The question over exactly what role the Saudi Kingdom played in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 is once again a hot topic. The Saudi Kingdom has long been suspected of financing the 9/11 hijackers. A fourteen-year-old lawsuit brought forth by the “9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism” seeks to hold the Saudi Kingdom accountable for the attacks. Meanwhile, the Saudi government continues to deny any involvement and calls for the lawsuit’s dismissal...

FDA Approves New Digital Sensor To Ensure "Patients With Mental Health Issues" Take Their Meds

It will “ensure” that patients who suffer from mental health issues take their medicine when they are told. But privacy concerns have not gone unnoticed.

Regulators in the United States have approved the first pill that can be digitally tracked as it makes its way through the human body. The Abilify MyCite aripiprazole tablets used for treating schizophrenia and manic episodes have an ingestible sensor embedded inside them that records that the medication has been taken. A patch worn by the patient transmits this information to their smartphone.

But many are raising the red flag that this could simply be another form of medical “big brother.” You may no longer have the right to refuse medications in the very near future.

The Abilify MyCite features a sensor the size of a grain of sand made of silicon, copper, and magnesium. An electrical signal is activated when the sensor comes into contact with stomach acid - the sensor then passes through the body naturally.

Libya's Slave Auctions And African Genocide: What Hillary Knew

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in "liberated" Libya, but CNN's crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, it can be aptly said that Secretary of State Clinton does, really, care about people; that is, if they had the serious money enabling them to "pay to play", and receive diplomatic favors from her.

Clinton understood what was going to happen, but she allowed it to happen to these people, because from her perspective, those enslaved Libyans were simply the counterparts of the US nationals she characterized as "deplorables"; poor, uneducated, and victims of their fate because they have been "gamed" by the very Libyan rebels she had supported.

Saudi-Israeli Collusion? Is Israel Seeking Role as Leader of the Sunni Bloc?

Israel has instructed its overseas embassies to lobby their respective host countries in support of Saudi Arabia and its apparent efforts to destabilise Lebanon, a recently leaked diplomatic cable shows.

The cable appears to be the first formal confirmation of rumours that Israel and Saudi Arabia are colluding to stoke tensions in the region.

Sent by the Israeli foreign ministry and disclosed by Israel’s Channel 10 news this week, the cable demanded that diplomats stress Iran and Hezbollah’s engagement in “regional subversion”.

That closely echoes accusations Riyadh levelled against Tehran and the Lebanese faction in recent days.

Analysts have noted that diplomatic moves by Israel to intervene directly in a seemingly internal Arab matter are “very rare”.

Yossi Alpher, a former adviser to Ehud Barak when he was Israeli prime minister, called the cable “extremely presumptuous”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to remember that Netanyahu is facing a bribery/corruption charge at home. this makes him a very politically vulnerable "wounded animal" in Israeli politics, and and all wounded animals are dangerous.

This new purge by Prince Salman may have been interpreted by Netanyahu as a "the enemy of my enemy (Iran/Hezbullah) is my friend" moment, to further factionalize the Middle East, and potentially give him the momentum to attack both Lebanon and Iran, to misdirect political attention away from his corruption issues, and toward those countries which have been declared Israel's "existential enemies" in the region.

ISRAEL USES U.S. TAX DOLLARS TO ABUSE PALESTINIAN CHILDREN. THIS BILL WOULD PUT AN END TO THAT.

CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS are frequent victims of Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories. They face physical abuse by Israeli military forces and are shuffled through an unfair court system without access to legal counsel or even their parents.

The United States has long subsidized these abuses, giving billions of dollars in military aid to Israel every year. Now, a group of Democratic members of Congress is saying enough is enough.

Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., and nine co-sponsors on Tuesday introduced legislation that would require the U.S. State Department to certify every year that American military aid is not being used to fund the systematic abuse of Palestinian children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on all the sponsors of this bill; unfortunately, however, I would politely suggest that, due to the direct pressure from AIPAC and Israel (and why are members of AIPAC not required to register as representatives of a foreign country, BTW?!?), this bill has as much likelihood of passing as do pigs discovering that they are aerodynamic.

Netanyahu: Israel Will Act Alone to Force Iran Out of Syria

On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed that the most recent ceasefire announcement did not involve any commitment for Russia to force Iran out of Syria, saying that Iran can maintain a legitimate presence in Syria.

This isn’t sitting well with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who urged the world to unite and force Iran out of Syria at all costs. Now, he’s saying Israel is prepared to act alone to ensure Iran has no permanent presence there.

The narrative of Iran even wanting a “permanent” presence in Syria seems to be more or less wholly an Israeli creation, based on reports of building at a Syrian military facility somehow being extrapolated to it being an “Iranian base.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Israel's Netanyahu has just declared war on Syria.

But of course, in light of the reality that Netanyahu's corruption trial is about to move forward,
Netanyahu to see bribery charges, what can one reasonably expect him to do, sit down and hum "Kumbiya"?!?

He is a politically wounded animal at this point; and politically wounded animals are highly dangerous.

Do not rule out some incredibly brazen Israeli military actions against Iran, Lebanon, or Syria, at this point, and rather immediately.

House Passes $700 Billion Military Spending Bill

The House and Senate had some differences on the 2018 military spending bill, but reached a compromise last week. The House passed this $700 billion spending and policy bill Tuesday with a 356-70 vote.

The bill includes $634 billion for “core operations,” and $66 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO). The OCO budget is notoriously used by the Pentagon to shift money around to various programs as officials see fit without having to ask Congress to fund them.

This massive bill is the culmination of months of officials trying to outspend one another, with President Trump proposing what he described as one of the biggest increases ever, followed by both houses of Congress outdoing that, and then trying to outdo each other.

This bill includes funding for myriad new research schemes, including the possibility of creating a new Space Corps and fighting wars in space. It also attempts to assert more Armed Services Committee oversight over military cyber operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have reached a phase in American governance where US legislators no longer represent their alleged constituents; they only represent the corporations which own them, and a large swathe of them are from the military/industrial complex.

I am sure that many of these CEOS are absolutely and thoroughly delighted in how their current "legislative assets" have paid off, royally, for them.

BuzzFeed: By Funding Own 2016 Elections, Russia Swayed US Presidential Contest

BuzzFeed News published a story Tuesday about wire transfers to Russian embassies in August 2016 that were accompanied by memos saying the funds were "to finance election campaign of 2016." The transfers, the outlet noted breathlessly, are being investigated by the FBI as possible attempts to influence the US presidential election.

The only problem with this latest Russiagate screed? The Russian Duma election was scheduled for the following month, which the money was obviously intended to support.

Hillary Clinton PERSONALLY Overturned Visa Ban for Islamist Figure Now Accused of Rape

European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, Tariq Ramadan is facing multiple accusations of rape and sexual assault of minors.

Hillary Clinton's visa for Tariq Ramadan was seen as part of the new Obama administration policy of embracing more hardcore Islamists.

The New York Times reported in 2010:

Six years after using the Patriot Act to revoke the visa of a prominent Muslim academic, the United States State Department reversed itself and said Wednesday that it would no longer bar the scholar from entering the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this report is true, it wouldn't be that much of a surprise.

When you look at the countries from which the Clinton Foundation routinely took money, the following would leap out at you:

Mrs. Clinton commemorates her 1995 women’s rights speech in Beijing in back-to-back events in New York, she finds herself under attack for her family foundation’s acceptance of millions of dollars in donations from Middle Eastern countries known for violence against women and for denying them many basic freedoms.

Media collusion & Fusion GPS: Were US journalists paid to peddle ‘Russiagate’?

From lurid reports of Trumpian ‘golden showers’ in Moscow to unverified claims of Russia ‘hacking’ Hillary Clinton’s email, a high-ranking US lawmaker is on a mission to determine if journalists were paid to push an anti-Russian document.

Even before Donald Trump ascended to the White House, the US media had been relentlessly driving the narrative that Trump, WikiLeaks and the Russians colluded to hack the Democratic National Committee (DNC) computers before dumping the damaged goodies into the public realm. This elaborate bit of sabotage, as the story goes, deprived the Democrats of the White House.

Despite the effectiveness of the story to deflect attention away from the real crimes of the Democratic Party, while at the same time splashing the increasingly irate Russians with mud, the narrative is beginning to show considerable wear and tear.

Breaking news! Russia funded Russian elections – BuzzFeed ‘secret finding’

BuzzFeed's latest "explosive" scoop on "secret" Russian financing of a 2016 election turned out to be an instant hit by burying a key detail: it was a Russian election.

On Tuesday, the US media outlet ran a story headlined “Secret Finding: 60 Russian Payments ‘To Finance Election Campaign of 2016’”.

The 959-word article opens with the revelation that during August 2016, at the height of US election euphoria, the Russian Foreign Ministry wired $30,000 to its embassy in Washington.

The money came with a memo suggesting it was “to finance the election campaign of 2016” – a red flag for many looking for evidence of Russia’s ominous influence in the US.

They stressed that Spain has evidence that public and private groups in Russia and Venezuela, used Twitter, Facebook and other social networks and websites as part of a large-scale campaign to promote separatist ideas and influence public opinion on the eve of the October 1 referendum organized by the Catalan authorities.

Saudi alliance bombs Sanaa airport, blocking aid access

Houthi officials told Al Jazeera two air strikes targeted Sanaa's international airport in the rebel-held capital early on Tuesday, making it unusable for aid flights and further complicating humanitarian efforts into the country.

"This attack is intended to cause maximum damage and deprive millions of Yemenis from receiving life-saving food and medicines," Mohammed, a Houthi official who declined to give his surname, said.

The Saudi-led coalition forced the closure of Sanaa airport in August 2016 to all but a few UN aid flights.

The Houthi-run General Authority for Civil Aviation said in a statement the air strike "led to the total destruction of the VOR/DME radio navigation system, taking it offline and thus halting the only flights at Sanaa airport - those of the UN and other international organisations delivering humanitarian assistance".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am still rather surprised, after the aborted Houthi missile reaching Riadh ast week, that Saudi Arabia has just not hauled off and carpet bombed all of the major cities left standing in Yemen.

That might, however, be the next move on Prince Salman's part, in his ongoing frustration with the intense stalemate going on here in Yemen.

Saudi Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman welcomes Lebanese Patriarch

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met Lebanese Patriarch Bechara Boutros al Rahi, Tuesday, reported Saudi Press Agency.

Saudi king Salman bin Abdulaziz received earlier today the Lebanese Maronite Patriarch at Al-Yamamah Palace in Riyadh on Tuesday, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The meeting tackled brotherly relations between the Saudi kingdom and Lebanon and confirmed the importance of different religions and cultures in strengthening tolerance, rejecting violence, extremism and terrorism and achieving peace and security for the region’s people and the world.

A number of Saudi ministers including Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir and Gulf Affairs Minister Thamer al-Sabhan attended the reception.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great optics for the Prince; but I have to wonder why in the Sam Hill Lebanese Maronite Patriarch Al Rahi actually consented to meet with Prince Salman in the first place.

After all, Saudi Arabia is a country where the profession of Christianity is treated as a crime, potentially punishable by death.

The following article goes on to state:

"here are more than a million Roman Catholics in Saudi Arabia. Most of them are expatriate Filipinos who work there, but are not Saudi Arabian citizens.[1][6] The percentage of Christians of all denominations among the roughly 1.2 million Filipinos in Saudi Arabia likely exceeds 60%.[7] There are also Christians from Canada, the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, Greece, South Korea, Ireland, the United Kingdom, India, China, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt and as well a number of Christians from sub-Saharan countries who are working in the Saudi Kingdom.[7]

Saudi Arabia allows Christians to enter the country as foreign workers for temporary work, but does not allow them to practice their faith openly.

Because of that Christians generally only worship within private homes.[7] Items and articles belonging to religions other than Islam are prohibited.[7] These include Bibles, crucifixes, statues, carvings, items with religious symbols, and others.[7]

The Saudi Arabian Mutaween (Arabic: مطوعين‎‎), or Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (i.e., the religious police) prohibits the practice of any religion other than Islam.[7] Conversion of a Muslim to another religion is considered apostasy,[7] a crime punishable by death if the accused does not recant. There have been no confirmed reports of executions for either crime in modern times.

[7] The Government does not permit non-Muslim clergy to enter the country for the purpose of conducting religious services.[7] In spite of this, a 2015 study estimates that there are some 60,000 Christians with a Muslim background living in the country, though that does not mean that all of those are citizens of the country.[8]

International Christian Concern (ICC) protested what it reported as the 2001 detention of 11 Christians in Saudi Arabia, for practicing their religion in their homes.[9] In June 2004, at least 46 Christians were arrested in what the ICC described as a "pogrom-like" action by Saudi police. The arrests took place shortly after the media reported that a Quran had been desecrated in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.[10]

Christians and other non-Muslims are prohibited from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina, Islam's holiest cities.[7]"

Jeff Sessions: 'Not enough basis' for special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton

Jeff Sessions on Tuesday said there was “not enough basis” to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton, a day after reports surfaced that the attorney general had authorized senior prosecutors at the Department of Justice to evaluate an inquiry into the Clinton Foundation.

Testifying before the House judiciary committee, Sessions also appeared to push back on Donald Trump’s repeated insistence that the FBI should focus on investigating Clinton as opposed to potential collusion between his own presidential campaign and Russia.

“The Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents. That would be wrong,” Sessions said when asked about Trump’s tweets calling on the DoJ to investigate his former rival in the 2016 presidential race.

“The president speaks his mind. He is bold and direct about what he says,” Sessions added. “We do our duty every day based on the facts.”

At a private event at Huntsville Christian Academy, Moore denied the allegations presented in the paper, which presented the testimony of four women who claimed that Moore had romantic relationships with them when they were only teenagers.
