Bombshell 1-Sentence Email From Hillary Just Released- It Could Be The Smoking Gun…

In the latest batch of emails to be released, a message sent by Clinton clears up that question by proving the secretary of state herself ordered an underling to send her some classified info over her unsecure email system. And she did so knowingly.

Latest batch of Clinton emails contains 66 more classified messages

The latest batch of emails released from Hillary Clinton's personal account from her tenure as secretary of state includes 66 messages deemed classified at some level, the State Department said early Friday.

In one email, Clinton even seemed to coach a top adviser on how to send secure information outside secure channels.

German Public Broadcaster Apologizes for Suppressing Report About Migrant Attacks

German public broadcaster ZDF has acknowledged that it was wrong to "delay" reporting on a wave of sexual assaults and robberies suspected to have been carried out by migrants from North Africa and the Middle East.

ZDF sat on the story for four days before reporting it, a decision that the broadcaster now calls a "misjudgment". Maybe ZDF was hoping it would all just go away? This is incredible:

“The news situation was clear enough. It was a mistake of the 7pm ‘heute’ show not to at least report the incidents,” wrote deputy chief editor Elmar Thevessen on the show’s Facebook page.

Editors had decided to postpone the news segment to Tuesday, the day Cologne’s city hall and police held a crisis meeting on the attacks, he wrote, admitting this was “a clear misjudgement”.

As the assaults have come to dominate German mainstream media, more women have come forward in Cologne and other cities about being groped and attacked on New Year’s Eve.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have noticed that the demand for firearms has gone through the roof in countries recently hit by the North African and Middle Eastern refugee crisis.

Obviously, the German government was pressuring ZDF not to publish this story; but the reality is, it was only a matter of time before it was going to come out.

Merkel may have just shot herself in the foot, politically, through approving this flood of refugees into the country; I would suggest that her days as head of the German government may be numbered, and we will see the rise of ultra-rightist organisations starting to emerge here, and in other European countries in which these refugees have been placed.

Eligibility questions causing headaches for Cruz camp, as McCain piles on

A casual jab by Donald Trump over Canada-born Ted Cruz’ eligibility for president has snowballed into a campaign trail headache for the Iowa GOP caucus front-runner.

The Texas senator was born in Calgary, Canada, a fact he’s hardly kept secret. Despite some questions last year about his eligibility to run, legal scholars have said Cruz indeed is a “natural born citizen” and eligible because his mother is American. Plus he renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2014.

But Trump, who famously challenged President Obama’s birthplace and eligibility years ago, dredged up the same issue with Cruz earlier this week, warning it could lead to a drawn-out court case.

Cruz tried to brush it off. But other lawmakers – most recently, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. – have kept the questions alive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look, this is really simple to resolve; allegedly, Eleanor Darragh Cruz, Ted Cruz's mom, was born in Wilmington, Delaware. There had to be a birth certificate floating around, right?!?

All Ted Cruz has to do, if in fact his mom's birth certificate exists, is produce his mother's birth certificate, corroborated by the State of Delaware, and the problem goes away.

But if he can't...... a legitimate issue does arise here.

THE BELLS TOLL FOR HILLARY

The Federal Bureau of Investigation will recommend that the Justice Department bring criminal charges against Hillary Clinton and various of her aides, and soon. The evidence consists of materials that the Bureau has gathered in the course of its months-long investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s personal server. The recommendations will come very soon.

The charges will consist of some of the following:

1. Improper disclosure or retention of classified information.
2. Destruction of government records.
3. Lying to federal agents.
4. Lying under oath.
5. Obstruction of justice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will believe it when I see Hillary hauled away in handcuffs, and not one second before. The FBI can recommend all they want, but it will be up to Obama's Attorney General Loretta Lynch whether or not to file charges, and I do not expect her to do so. But even so, obvious criminality and an Obama "get out of jail free" card will not look good to the voters!

67 Countries the U.S. Is Obliged to Go to War For

The United States has entered a lot of treaties over the years, especially after the complicated network put in place after World War II. The Myth of Entangling Alliances by Michael Beckley sought to figure out a hard number for just how many countries the United States has agreed to defend in war. Thanks to NATO, ANZUS, OAS, and bilateral agreements, the U.S. has promised 67 countries protection. Here's a look at the list included in Beckley's paper:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Argentina?!? Pakistan?!?!? Albania?!? Turkey?!? Luxembourg?!?

What were the people who created those treaties thinking?!?!?

America Revisits the Dark Side

Candidates and reporters alike have ignored the obvious larger point – if, that is, we weren’t living in a country that had given itself a blanket pass on the issue of war crimes. Carpet-bombing cities, torturing prisoners, and rendering lands uninhabitable are all against the law. They are, in fact, grave crimes. That even critics of these comments will not identify such potential acts as war crimes can undoubtedly be attributed, at least in part, to the fact that no one – other than a few low-level military personnel and a CIA whistleblower who spoke publicly about the Agency’s torture agenda – has been prosecuted in the U.S. for the startling array of crimes already committed in the so-called War on Terror.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, in its lust for regime change for any foreign government it might not like, tortures; poisons; bombs; invades; destroys civilian infrastructure; and assassinates, and takes absolutely no moral responsibility for it whatsoever.

Welcome, my friends, to what Amerika has become in the 21st century.

And that rapid, thumping sound you hear, across this land right now, is that of our founding fathers, and the women who loved them, turning over in their graves at warp speed, in despair of what this country has become.

How Obama Enables Atrocities

How Obama Enables Atrocities
January 4, 2016

Exclusive: President Obama seems so scared of offending the Saudis and their Israeli allies that he will tolerate almost any outrage, including Saudi Arabia’s mass beheadings and/or shootings of the regime’s enemies including a Shiite political leader who dared criticize the monarchy, writes Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

As the New Year dawns, the neocons and their liberal interventionist sidekicks remain firmly in control of Official Washington’s storylines – on Syria, Russia and elsewhere – even as their policies continue to wreak havoc across the Mideast and threaten the stability of Europe and indeed the future of civilization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Enabling the kind of atrocities created by the Saudi Arabian government and monarchy against political prisoners is somewhat akin to handing a serial arsonist boxes of lighters, nitroglycerin, detonation chord, TNT, and then expecting them not to do something nasty with that equipment.

The US government has so lost the moral high ground here that it is absolutely vilely deplorable.

The Real Story Behind the Hammond Ranch Affair

Yesterday, I exposed, once again, the fact that minerals are being taken from mines such as the one on the Hammond Ranch and what was attempted at the Bundy Ranch. This is happening all over the country. In yesterday’s article I noted the New York Times article which exposed the facts related to this subject.

The prosecution of Hammond family is designed to get them off of their land through breaking them financially by creating expensive legal bills and federal fines. Once the Hammonds are gone, the globalists get to have their way with the lands resources.

The Abuse of the Hammonds Began with the Bundy Ranch Affair: All Ranchers Are At Risk

VW Refuses to Give U.S. States Documents in Emissions Inquiries

Citing German privacy laws, Volkswagen has refused to provide emails or other communications among its executives to attorneys general in the United States, impeding American investigations into the company’s emissions-cheating scandal, according to officials in several states.

The revelation signals a turning point in the now openly fractious relations between Volkswagen and American investigators, after claims by the Justice Department, in its own inquiry this week, that the company had recently “impeded and obstructed” regulators and provided “misleading information.”

Volkswagen in September admitted that it had installed software created to cheat on emissions tests in 11 million of its diesel vehicles worldwide. A 48-state civil investigation is being led by a half-dozen states, including New York and Connecticut. Attorneys general in California and Texas are conducting their own inquiries of the company, which includes the Audi and Porsche brands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Volkswagen will not cooperate, there is not much the States Attorneys General can do to force compliance from a foreign corporation.

DOCTORS URGE CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS "LEAVE NOW...WHILE YOU CAN" AS GAS LEAK FEARS GROW

?California Governor Jerry Brown finally declared a state of emergency on Wednesday, concerning the ongoing, currently unstoppable methane gas leak spewingfrom Aliso Canyon that has created a nightmare for residents of Porter Ranch.
“I will tell you, this goes well beyond Porter Ranch. We’ve had complaints from as far as Chatsworth, Northridge, and Granada Hills,” emphasized Los Angeles City Councilman Mitchell Englander during a Porter Ranch town hall meeting on December 28. “Apparently this plume of toxic chemicals and whatever it might be, doesn’t know zip codes […] This is the equivalent of the BP oil spill on land, in a populated community.”

Aliso Canyon sits less than two and a half miles from Porter Ranch and less than 30 miles from the city of Los Angeles — the second most populous city in the United States — whose outlying total statistical area includes nearly 18 million residents, as of 2013.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Southern California Gas company has just become the the US's equivalent to Japan's TEPCO, in terms of horrifically bad management and maintenance, which has led to this nightmare.

This gross mismanagement will create ongoing health issues and challenges for Californians for generations to come.

EMPIRES (LIKE THE U.S.) FALL WHEN CORRUPTION BECOMES RAMPANT

As we've exhaustively documented, corruption is rampant in the the U.S. today.

In addition, widespread corruption leads to runaway inequality. Specifically, one of the biggest causes of runaway inequality is that the big banks are manipulating every market, and committing massive crimes. Fraud disproportionately benefits the big banks, makes boom-bust cycles more severe, and otherwise harms the economy … all of which increase inequality and warp the market. These actions artificially redistribute wealth from honest, hard-working people to a handful of crooks. And corrupt government officials have aided and abetted this.

Runaway inequality - in turn - leads to the fall of empires ... through unrest or revolution.

THE US HELPED OVERTHROW LIBYA 2011. HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING THERE NOW

“We are helpless and not being able to do anything against this deliberate destruction to the oil installations. NOC urges all faithful and honorable people of this homeland to hurry to rescue what is left from our resources before it is too late.”
That’s from Libya’s National Oil Corp and as you might have guessed, it references the seizure of state oil assets by Islamic State, whose influence in the country has grown over the past year amid the power vacuum the West created by engineering the demise of Moammar Qaddafi.

The latest attacks occurred in Es Sider, a large oil port that’s been closed for at least a year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Obama Administration, with Clinton at the helm of the State Department, was unable to think through what would happen after the assassination of Ghadaffi in 2011, you cannot reasonably look for a Clinton Presidency to have any better decision making prowess in 2017.

Whoa: Hillary e-mail instructs aide to transmit classified data without markings

Has the State Department released a smoking gun in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal? In a thread from June 2011, Hillary exchanges e-mails with Jake Sullivan, then her deputy chief of staff and now her campaign foreign-policy adviser, in which she impatiently waits for a set of talking points. When Sullivan tells her that the source is having trouble with the secure fax, Hillary then orders Sullivan to have the data stripped of its markings and sent through a non-secure channel.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This confirrms reports from last summer that Hillary's staffers were stripping the classified emails of classification marks which is a FELONY! and the above emails shows that Hillary not only knew, but ordered the commission of that felony!

An Imminent Indictment? - Fmr U.S. Attorney: Hillary Clinton Charged Soon - Andrew Napolitano

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would love to see it, but I doubt it. The FBI has been the Clintons' protectors going all the way back to the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, the event which triggered my involuntary career change from visual effects expert to truth activist all those years ago! I suspect the FBI will declare that they cannot find any hard evidence of wrongdoing and the Hillary campaign will declare the matter closed, an example of GOP persecution of women, "in the past", and Hillary's campaign will move forward.

A Deal for Wounded Knee?

An agreement has been signed to purchase the historic site of Wounded Knee from its owner, James Czywczynski, for $3.9 million. The buyer is journalist and publisher Tim Giago, founder of such publications as the Lakota Times, Native Sun News and Indian Country Today. The money has yet to be raised. But after years of false starts, the site of the 1890 massacre may finally be developed befitting its historic infamy.

Maine governor under fire after blaming state's heroin epidemic on men named 'D-Money, Smoothie and Shifty' who he also accuses of 'impregnating young, white girls'

Governor Paul LePage is not backing down after coming under fire for making comments about his state's heroin epidemic that many are calling racist.

Governor LePage was speaking at a town hall meeting on Wednesday in Bridgton, Maine when the question of the growing drug problem in his state was brought up by an attendee.

He responded by saying; 'These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home.'

He then added; 'Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.'

Empires (Like the U.S.) Fall When Corruption Becomes Rampant

Widespread corruption destroys empires.

By way of example, corruption was one of the main causes of the collapse of the Roman Empire:

The Praetorian Guard—the emperor’s personal bodyguards—assassinated and installed new sovereigns at will, and once even auctioned the spot off to the highest bidder [and see this]. The political rot also extended to the Roman Senate, which failed to temper the excesses of the emperors due to its own widespread corruption and incompetence. As the situation worsened, civic pride waned and many Roman citizens lost trust in their leadership.

The Ottoman Empire started its decline when the sale of offices, bribery and corruption became widespread. Indeed:

Most historians point to “degenerate Sultans, incompetent Grand Viziers, debilitated and ill-equipped armies, corrupt officials, avaricious speculators, grasping enemies, and treacherous friends.

The Yuan Empire (led by the Mongols) also collapsed due to corruption:

Gun Control Psyop: When All Else Fails, Cry

People keep asking, is it menthol or method acting? Or both?

We’ve already seen more mass shootings in the last six years under this president than at any other time in American history ever. Now, in addition to calling for a false flag like Australia’s to enact gun control the way Australia did, we get crying.

We don’t get crying at the thousands of children this Nobel Peace Prize winning president has bombed in airstrike campaigns in the multitude of countries America is droning overseas. No tears over the fact that we live in a country where at least three people a day every single day are killed by trigger happy police, a much higher rate than other countries that only continues to grow. No sobbing at the realization none of these policies would have stopped even a single mass shooting that has happened, a fact this president’s administration has already openly admitted.

Because people who become cops never, ever play with toy guns as a child.

The saddest part is that by his own comments Officer Cicero, who has been given a paid vacation for his commentary (but will, of course, get to keep his job policing the school district even though he seems to have no problem with publicly mocking the mothers of murdered children), typifies the police state executioner cop that dominates headlines these days... a trigger happy moron who appears to have no problem at all killing people and even kids first and asking questions later.

They can’t fight two wars and sell their oil for peanuts (intending to undermine Iran and Russia) and cut down their welfare programs and incite the Shia rebellion by beheading that beloved preacher.

You Might be a Terrorist If…

Are you a terrorist? A potential terrorist? A suspected terrorist? A suspected potential terrorist? Or potentially a suspected terrorist?

As Jeff Foxworthy might say: If you believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or the rule of law … you might be a terrorist.

Prohibiting people listed on the government’s secret terrorist watchlist and its secret subsidiary, the federal no-fly list, from buying guns is again on the table.

President Obama expressed the argument simply the other night when he said, “If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun.” That seems reasonable, but of course, like most government programs, seeming reasonable and being reasonable are two vastly different things.

Oregon Standoff – A Constitutional Perspective

As you can clearly see by reading the Seventh Amendment all matters pertaining to living people and their property must be addressed to Common Law Courts. How then, are the Hammonds being addressed by federal admiralty courts? The answer lies in the past.

During the Civil War the normal court system owed the people in the South shut down and did not immediately reopen. Commanders in the military districts in ten states appointed civilian tribunals to function under “Special Admiralty”—– a euphemism. For the purposes of these military tribunals, people and property could be addressed in an arbitrary fashion without regard for the Law of the Land. This was very convenient for the administrators and very unfortunate for the people.

State of Emergency Declared for Socal Methane Gas Leak

So this gas line was leaking one of the most dangerous carcinogens known to man, and the governor is just now declaring an emergency?

On Wednesday Jerry Brown issued a press release, which called for the company to try to capture some of the gas before they finish drilling a relief well (not sure how that’s possible), and to begin finding an alternative solution in case the well doesn’t work. The message also states that the SoCalGas Company will cover the costs of repairing the leak, as well the emergency response to the situation.

That response has included the evacuation of thousands of residents from Porter Ranch, and for a very good reason. This massive gas leak is starting to make a lot of people very sick.

FedEx Corporate Issues Dictate About Oregon Protesters: "Do Not Make Any Deliveries To Anyone At The Refuge."

People inquiring about sending supplies to the Oregon protesters have been told by the local FedEx office that deliveries to the occupiers has been forbidden. "I spoke to the owner of the 'in town' FedEx, and she received word from Corporate to not make any deliveries to the anyone at the refuge," Robert Parker said. As LibertyFight.com reported in 2014, Frederick W. Smith, the CEO of FedEx, is a Yale graduate, friend of Bush and Kerry, and creepy Skull and Bones member, who has called for a fifteen cents per gallon increase on the fuel tax for all Americans. Smith has a VERY SHADY past. On January 31, 1975, Fred Smith was indicted for forgery by a Federal Grand Jury. The same evening of his forgery indictment Smith was involved in a fatal hit and run whereby he killed a 54-year old handyman named George C. Strughill. Smith was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with an expired license.

State Department misled on Hillary Clinton emails, investigation concludes

The top leadership of the State Department regularly botched open-records requests such as those for former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails, the department’s inspector general said in a report released Thursday that portrayed a staff who gave short shrift to its legal obligation to be transparent.

Department leaders ignored one request for Mrs. Clinton’s schedules “for several years,” and in another instance insisted it couldn’t find any records relating to Mrs. Clinton’s other emails — even though at the time, “dozens of senior officials” were aware of her unique email arrangement.

The inspector general said Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff at the time, Cheryl Mills, who knew about her email account and server she kept at her New York home, was made aware of the request for information, but didn’t take any steps to clear the matter up or reveal the email account.

Chase the Rabbit

Americans are being lied to …

We are lied to by our government, misled by the entertainment media, indoctrinated by our educational institutions, defrauded by our banking institutions, and subjugated by our employers. Nevertheless, we willingly grant these institutions power over nearly every aspect of our lives, and we even admire and assist those who are exploiting us. What is the purpose of the lies?

To con each and every one of us out of our property rights, and to coerce us into consenting to our own fleecing—while venerating and revering the thieves.

Neocons Defend Saudi Arabia

That great champion of human rights and democracy, Elliott Abrams, and the hard-line neocon’s most influential print medium, the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, were quickest off the mark in attacking Iran and defending the poor, abandoned Saudis, respectively. Bill Kristol’s Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), meanwhile, made it clear which side should be favored in a release posted on its website early Tuesday afternoon. Its list of “resources” made clear that, no matter the provocation, Iran should always be considered “Public Enemy #1.” The administration’s attempt to appear more-or-less even-handed in the escalating crisis—or even a little critical of Riyadh—was yet another deplorable example of Obama’s weakness and appeasement. The clearest critique came from Abrams’s fellow senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Max Boot, in a Commentary Contentions post with the title “An American Ally of Necessity.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Max Boot: the US government, sir, needs to understand the necessity of choosing good over evil, as geopolitics unfold.

Because the late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable." Time, and history, have proven this statement profoundly correct, time after time.

The Saudi Arabian government is both desperate and broke, and you are seeing the kinds of demonstrations in the Kingdom one has never seen in times past, particularly in light of the execution of of the prominent Shiite cleric, Nimr al-Nimr, last weekend.

And as reported in theindependent.co.uk on Tuesday the 5th of January:

The collapse of the global oil price since the summer of 2014 has destroyed the Kingdom’s public finances – hardly surprising given it relies on oil sales for 90 per cent of state revenues. The Kingdom’s budget deficit for 2015 ballooned to 15 per cent of its GDP. The IMF estimated last year that Saudi Arabia needs a global oil price of around $106 (£72) a barrel to balance existing levels of expenditure with revenues. On Wednesday the price dipped below $35 a barrel and shows no signs of recovering – with a glut of Iranian supply expected this year after the sanction-lifting deal between Tehran and Western powers. The Kingdom has finally taken corrective action. Last year it issued debt for first time and in December it unveiled an “austerity” budget. But austerity is a relative concept; Saudi citizens pay no income tax. Petrol and energy are dirt cheap, thanks to state subsidies. The Saudi government’s savings were dominated by cuts in planned building projects. Many argue high welfare spending is needed to keep a lid on tribal dissent. Saudi also has a potential generational powder keg to worry about. Youth unemployment is high, with almost a third of 15 to 24-year-olds out of work. And with almost half of Saudi’s 31 million population under 24, the potential for unrest if living standards are squeezed is obvious.

Iran may well be a theocracy, and does have human rights issues, but it does have a Constitution, elections, and a Parliament. And as reported at wikipedia.com:

According to the CIA World Factbook, around 90–95%[1] of Iranians associate themselves with the Shi'a branch of Islam, the official state religion, and about 5–10% with the Sunni and Sufi branches of Islam. The remaining 0.6% associate themselves with non-Islamic religious minorities, including Bahá'ís, Mandeans, Yarsanis, Zoroastrians, Jews, and Christians.[2] The latter three minority religions are officially recognized and protected, and have reserved seats in the Iran parliament.[3] Zoroastrianism was once the majority religion, though today Zoroastrians number only in the tens of thousands.[4] Iran is home to the second largest Jewish community in the Muslim World and the Middle East.[5] Christianity, the second largest non-Muslim minority religion, has the largest annual growth rate of all religions.

Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, is an absolute monarchy, with no parliament, no written constitution, no elections, and utterly no room for dissent or criticism of its leadership. Their human rights record is just to the right of that of Attila the Hun, and yet: THIS is the country with which the US government partners in the Middle East, while consistently condemning Iran?!?

Something is urgently, morally, and absolutely wrong with this equation, and you, sir, of all people, have to know that this backing of Saudi Arabia stinks to high heaven.

And if there is a coming conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran, it is pretty apparent that the US will be siding, supporting, aiding, and abetting the Saudi government, while Iran will be partnering with ...Russia.

But then again, that is precisely the outcome the neocons see as the ultimate goal of regional Middle Eastern conflict, isn't it: a US war against Russia?!?
