Marco Rubio Pretends Those Billionaire Bucks Don't Buy Any Influence

Marco Rubio wants us to believe that all of that money flowing his way from the millionaires and billionaires funding his super pacs and political campaign don't have a bit of influence on his agenda.

And once again we can give Meet the Press host Chuck Todd the award for the false equivalency of the day for conflating the Clinton's charity with a political pac and treating them like they're the same thing with the framing the questions for Rubio. We all know you're never allowed to ask someone about Republicans behaving badly without the appropriate "but the Democrats" thrown in there as well, which is exactly what Todd did here.

SCOTUS HAS AUTHORIZED SHOOTING FLEEING PEOPLE IN THE BACK

Webmaster addition: Actually, the whole court ruled in FAVOR of the man shot in the back. Only Justices O'Conner, Burger, and Rehnquist think it is permissible for a police officer to shoot a fleeing suspect.

Greece – A Dramatic Appeal by Mikis Theodorakis

The signatories are calling “all the peoples of the world, to realize that the struggle of the Greek people is also their struggle”.

Friends of Greece,

On 3 August 2015, MikisTheodorakis, the Greek world famous music composer and Resistance figure, called upon the Greek people – and the peoples of the world – to respect Democracy – the very Democracy, born in Greece some 2500 years ago and given to the world as a set of values for respect for each other, for humanity – for equal rights and for free expression.

The following text summarizes MikisTheodorakis’ appeal to stop the Syriza Government from selling out the Greek people’s country and stop the currently – almost in secret – ongoing negotiations with the troika on the modalities of the € 86 billion loan and the details of the new austerity measures – “negotiations” to be concluded by about 20 August 2015.

Trump trumps them all in Republican debates — Pepe Escobar

"Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t win anymore..." Donald Trump

Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz has said that the US, on the financial front, is “on the wrong side of history.” As for the Republican candidates chasing the nomination for the 2016 US presidential race, well, they may qualify only for the ‘wrong’ side of the bargain, as they hardly know what ‘history’ means.
And that brings us to a mammoth specimen of entertainment/reality TV; the first Republican debate, no less than a seemingly-eternal 15 months before the actual US presidential election.

It definitely started with a – what else? – celebrity TV bang. Would anybody raise their hands if they were mulling running as a third-party candidate, and ignore the eventual Republican nominee?

Russian Election Chief: American Elections Are a Pathetic Fraud. Amen!

Vladimir Churov, the head of Russia’s Central Electoral Commission since 2007, does not believe anything positive could come out of studying the American experience with democracy – because democracy in the US is nothing more than a bunch of dirty tricks.
“All those who watched the movie Gangs of New York,” he thundered to a cheering young audience during last week’s Russian Educational Youth Forum Terra Scientia on Klyazma River. “That is about the birth of American democracy … All the dirty techniques starting from bribery of voters and ending with [political] assassinations, they all were invented there,” he continued.

Judge Nap: Hillary Clinton Approved Arms for Terrorist Enemies of U.S.

Judge Andrew Napolitano revealed this morning what he has concluded after reviewing hundreds of pages of documents and emails related to Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

The judge wrote today in a Washington Times column that the documents "persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Mrs. Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress."

Netanyahu and His Marionettes

Benjamin Netanyahu is laying siege to the Congress of the United States, not for the first time. He has thrown his voice and channeled his influence into the arena of American legislative politics, to abort the P5+1 nuclear settlement with Iran, which was signed on July 14 by the US, Britain, France, Germany, China, and Russia. The Israeli strong man's latest intervention is in keeping with the rest of his political career. Netanyahu owes all his importance and his success to actions that have been purely destructive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All Netanyahu can do is keep the US out of the Iran deal. The other nations are already moving ahead making deals with Tehran for oil and export markets. Israel's meddling will harm US companies, and not Iran. Netanyahu needs another 9-11 to get war with Iran going.

Judge asked to seize USB flash drive containing Hillary Clinton's email

A federal judge is being asked to seize the USB flash drive that holds copies of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private emails.

Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman on Wednesday filed a motion to have a judge take control of the flash drive, which is being held by David Kendall, Clinton’s lawyer, as part of his ongoing racketeering lawsuit against the Democratic presidential frontrunner.

“This court has a responsibility to preserve evidence and must do so to avoid its destruction,” Klayman wrote in the new motion. “Importantly, plaintiff has not requested to see the documents, hard and thumb drives at this time, but simply asked that this court take them into its custody for safekeeping.”

Hillary Clinton Sent Unsecured Emails Revealing Location Of Ambassador Chris Stevens and NATO Fighter Jets, Reveals Judge Napolitano

Judge Andrew Napolitano said Wednesday on Fox News' "Hannity" that several emails he read from Hillary Clinton's private server cache show that the former secretary of state revealed the location of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Libya, as well as the location of fighter jets during NATO bombing runs.

"She denied that there were any classified documents on her email system or server," host Sean Hannity said, to which Napolitano responded, "Well she cannot deny that any longer."

State Department blames classified info for Clinton email delays

The State Department says all of the potential secret information in former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails has knocked them off pace, and told a federal judge late Friday that’s why the department is currently in violation of his orders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which means the State Department just admitted that Hillary had classified information on her private email server.

Judicial Watch: State Dept. Demands Clinton Aides Return Copies of Federal Records

The State Department has turned over to Judicial Watch the letters asking for the government records in possession of Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills per a court order issued on July 31 and included the responses of the representatives to the request, according to Judicial Watch.

The letters show that, on July 31, the State Department, for the first time, demanded that Mills and Abedin “return all copies of potential federal records in your possession.” The State Department did not provide correspondence demanding Mrs. Clinton return all copies of potential federal records. Despite the court’s July 31 order for immediate disclosure, the State Department and its Justice Department attorneys took six days to disclose the 13 letters, which total 19 pages.

Top Hillary aide Cheryl Mills: I’ve been told to destroy my e-mails

Now this can’t be, can it? A Clinton aide blatantly destroying evidence in a criminal investigation? That would never happen.

OK, I’ll wait for you to stop laughing. This is the level of absurdity we’ve reached in the Hillary e-mail boondoggle, except that this doesn’t even really quite cover it. Because not only is Cheryl Mills destroying e-mails she’s supposed to be handing over, but the federal judge who issued the order is now sadly reduced to pleading with the Obama Administration to please ask her not to. How do you think that’s going to go?

FLASHBACK LAST WEEK - Clinton email release falls well short of judge’s order

The State Department admitted it was violating a judge’s order Friday in releasing only 1,356 new emails from former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s time in the administration, with officials saying they’re falling behind because they are having to run all of the documents by intelligence agencies to make sure classified documents aren’t being released.

It’s the latest stumble for a department put on the spot by Mrs. Clinton’s unique email set-up, which saw her reject a State Department account and instead issue herself a private account, kept on a server she maintained at her New York home — raising questions about security and compliance with open-records laws.

Cheryl Mills To Destroy Emails About Boss Hillary Clinton

In a letter sent to the U.S. State Department and just filed today with U.S. federal Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, the counsel for Cheryl Mills wrote: “Ms. Mills does not believe that she has paper copies of potential records in her possession. Following our production on August 10, 2015 [of the defense counsel’s version of the electronic records], we have instructed her to delete any and all electronic records in her possession.” That is a far stretch from a statement by Ms. Mills under penalty of perjury, and she and her lawyers are planning to delete the emails Judge Sullivan wants produced? Judicial Watch has made an emergency filing in Judge Sullivan’s court to stop the further destruction of evidence of what may very well be assorted criminal conduct and violations of numerous federal laws.

Mumps outbreak strikes Illinois college students who already received TWO MMR vaccines

Dozens of students attending the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) have come down with the mumps virus in what authorities believe could snowball into an all-out epidemic. But once again, the vast majority of afflicted students were already twice vaccinated for mumps (MMR) prior to catching the disease, upending government claims about this dangerous and useless vaccine.

Reports indicate that some 69 cases of mumps have thus far been reported on the UIUC campus, and most of these, according to Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Nirav Shah, occurred among students who had previously received two rounds of the combination vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

According to FOX News, Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Director Nirav Shah is recommending everyone get a third MMR vaccination to help stop the epidemic! It should be obvious at this point that the vaccinations are causing the outbreaks, not preventing them, with each new outbreak then used to sell more vaccines!

The Assault On Donald Trump Shows That Our 2 Party System Is Really A 1 Party System

Climate change: the Hoax that Costs Us $4 Billion a Day

The global climate change industry is worth an annual $1.5 trillion, according to Climate Change Business Journal. That’s the equivalent of $4 billion a day spent on vital stuff like carbon trading, biofuels, and wind turbines. Or — as Jo Nova notes — it’s the same amount the world spends every year on online shopping.

But there’s a subtle difference between these two industries — the global warming one and the online shopping one. Can you guess what it is?

Mother Jones obtained more than 450 local requests, filed over two years, for what may be the most iconic piece of equipment in the debate over militarizing local police: the mine resistant ambush protected vehicle, or MRAP.* And an analysis of these documents reveals that in justifying their requests, very few sheriffs and police chiefs cite active shooters, hostage situations, or terrorism, as police advocates do in public.?

Ukrainian Politicians Knock Each Other Out in Parliament

The world witnessed some of the most amazing fights in the Ukrainian Rada in the past, but after Petro Poroshenko assumed the presidency he promised Ukraine will move towards Europeanization, including getting rid of the bad habit of fist fighting in the parliament.

Well… It didn't quite work out. The ongoing Civil War in Donbass, the economy on the verge of collapse and defiant Right Sector terrorists are causing heated arguments among Ukrainian parliamentarians that sometimes still end with a knockout.

New NBC News/Survey Monkey Poll: Donald Trump Still in the Lead After Debates

If Donald Trump's comments about Fox News Anchor Megyn Kelly are hurting his standing in the Republican primary, it's not showing in the numbers.

According to the latest NBC News Online Poll conducted by SurveyMonkey, Trump is at the top of the list of GOP candidates that Republican primary voters would cast a ballot for if the primary were being held right now.

The overnight poll was conducted for 24 hours from Friday evening into Saturday. During that period, Donald Trump stayed in the headlines due to his negative comments about Kelly and was dis-invited from a major conservative gathering in Atlanta.

None of that stopped Trump from coming in at the top of the poll with 23 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz was next on the list with 13 percent.

He referred in particular to the Greek referendum in which the Greek people on 5 July 2015 voted with an overwhelming 61% against the continuation of the economic and financial strangulation of Greece by the infamous troika – the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Commission (EC) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

A Cold Summer for Europe

In the whole modern history of Europe, there was not such a shameful surrender, or even treason. ‘Alexis Tsipras’ is a Greek translation of ‘Vidkun Quisling’ or of ‘Maréchal Pétain’.

After the Syriza debacle of Greece, there is a very little trust for left-wing rhetoric. In the whole modern history of Europe, there was not such a shameful surrender, or even treason. ‘Alexis Tsipras’ is a Greek translation of ‘Vidkun Quisling’ or of ‘Maréchal Pétain’. The man received the full support of his people, and chickened out. (The first step of Syriza after the fiasco was to enter into military cooperation with Israel.) Now only the far-right Golden Dawn speaks loudly against surrender to the bankers, but this is a party in opposition, and it risks nothing by speaking out.

Erdogan’s 1st year marred by violations of Constitution, intrusion in gov’t

The legacy of President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an’s first year in office has come under immense criticism. He stands accused of violating the Constitution, intervening in the government’s affairs and engaging in obvious favoritism for the ruling party, a preference that is reflected in his push for an early general election.

Looks like things are getting interesting in Turkey.

Facebook Wall of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, Holistic Doctor Who Passed Away Mysteriously, Overwhelmed by Support of Grateful Parents

On June 19 a prominent holistic doctor named Jeff Bradstreet’s body was found floating in the Rocky Broad River in North Carolina, just days after his office was raided by FDA and Georgia Drugs and Narcotics officers.

The 61-year-old had died of an apparent gunshot to the chest in an incident that was immediately ruled a suicide, but the family reportedly has serious questions about the official story and have vowed to “get to the bottom of (what happened),” using private investigators according to this article from the website HealthNutNews.com.

Bradstreet was reportedly facing up 20 years in prison for administering an unapproved immune system-focused treatment that critics say has not been adequately tested for safety.

Meanwhile, a tug-of-war over Bradstreet’s real legacy has broken out between certain media outlets and the doctor’s supporters, patients and family members.

Huckabee advocates PERSONHOOD rights of Unborn as 'PERSON' under 5th/14th Amendments in Republican Presidential Candidates Debate, Aug 6, 2015

Mike Huckabee:

"I think the next president ought to invoke the Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution now that we clearly know that that baby inside the mother's womb is a person at the moment of conception.

The reason we know that it is is because of the DNA schedule that we now have clear scientific evidence on. And, this notion that we just continue to ignore the personhood of the individual is a violation of that unborn child's Fifth and 14th Amendment rights for due process and equal protection under the law.

It's time that we recognize the Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being, and we change the policy to be pro-life and protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they're parts to a Buick."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not support Huckabee, mostly for his pole position in the "I can kiss Israel's ass deeper and wetter than anyone else" contest, but he does illustrate an important point.

6 Ways the Medical System Makes Us Ill Before Kindergarten

Mothers of small children ask me about natural health all the time. It happens in the line at my favorite natural grocer, or after a yoga class. Sometimes I receive questions through email or through a friend of a friend. It’s a universal desire for parents to give their children the best start possible, but our medical system is not set up to do that at all. In fact, in 6 key ways, it is harming our children and damaging their prospects for future health. Here’s how:

Could Google seal the Presidency? Voters are far more likely to pick candidates whose name appears at the top of a search, study shows

Google could change the result of the Presidential election based on where it ranks candidates in its search results, a study has shown.

Undecided voters researching election candidates were far more likely to back those who appeared towards the top of a Google search, even if the results were negative, scientists said.

The study by the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, showed that deliberately influencing where candidates fell in search results swung opinion by 12 per cent.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the genocide at Hiroshima, Japan. Since that demonic day, three entire generations of Americans have been fed the conscience-soothing falsehood that the dropping of the Atom Bombs saved lives by shortening the war. It was a "humanitarian" thing, you see? Like everything else about World War II, this too is a big lie.

The US Senate’s “DARK Act” Would Cause America’s Crop Fields to Be Saturated with Cancer-Causing Glyphosate (Monsanto Roundup)

A bill pending before the U.S. Senate would not just deny consumers the right to know whether their food contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs), it could also strip states of their right to limit or regulate the use of dangerous herbicide chemicals widely sprayed over fields of GMO crops.

The bill in question, which passed a vote in the House of Representatives of July 22, is formally known as H.R. 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, but has come to be known by organic and natural foods advocates as the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act. That’s because far from ensuring accurate food labeling, the bill is actually designed to prevent the implementation of mandatory GMO labeling laws.

Bans any GMO labeling with teeth

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since our alleged "representatives" in Congress are owned by the companies manufacturing this poison, one has little recourse, except by making it a habit to patronize stores which do not sell GMO products.

Yes, I know it is way more expensive than just capitulating, and buying your food from the markets where you always generally go. However, this is an investment in your life-long health, and the health of your family.

Vaccination bills have been introduced all across the country seeking to end our ability to opt-out of the vaccination program through the use of personal and/or religious belief exemptions in order to attend public or private school. We are told in mainstream media and by the pharmaceutical industry through their representative politicians that we have a health crises, that vaccines are safe, that vaccines are required, and that we must get vaccinated or we and/or our children will suffer severe consequences.

However, we are being lied to about vaccine need, vaccine safety and vaccination efficacy.

GOP leaders say erratic attacks hurt Trump, but he vows to fight and win

Republican leaders who have watched Donald Trump’s summer surge with alarm now believe that his presidential candidacy has been contained and may begin to collapse because of his repeated attacks on a Fox News Channel star and his refusal to pledge his loyalty to the eventual GOP nominee.

Fearful that the billionaire’s inflammatory rhetoric has inflicted serious damage to the GOP brand, party leaders hope to pivot away from the Trump sideshow and toward a more serious discussion among a deep field of governors, senators and other candidates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the GOP leadership: short of an assassination (and we all know that such things have been "engineered", in American politics over time), Mr. Trump is not going anywhere.

What frightens all of you is how he has tapped in to the free floating anxiety of Americans who are exhausted of the games, angry about the reality of outsourced/offshored jobs, frustrated with the sorry state of education in this country, and angry that people who have not earned the right to be in this country are treated better, many times, by this administration, than actual citizens of this country.

They want this to stop.

And someone had damned well better start listening to them.

THINK MANDATORY VACCINATIONS IS 'FOR THE KIDS' AND ABOUT 'SAFETY'? HERE'S A LIST OF CA STATE 'REPRESENTATIVES' AND HOW MUCH MONEY THEY WERE 'DONATED' TO BY BIG PHARMA CORPORATIONS

SB277 passed. And some political campaigns got richer and more powerful in the mean time. But let’s start with the spin factory. (this disgust me)

(via sacbee) “We aren’t pushing this bill behind the scenes,” said Priscilla VanderVeer, the senior director for communications for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, known as PhRMA, the industry’s main trade group. The group has no taken no position on SB 277, although the group has long backed vaccinations as sound public health policy, she said.
This statement from VanderVeer is absolutely absurd and panders to the lowest denominations of our society’s intelligence. Who would believe this stuff? This can’t be real life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, wake the hell up; public policy in this country is bought and paid for by the corporations which will make huge profits by the passage of such bills.

You, as a voter, have become irrelevant and redundant; you no longer have any choice in the political process in this country. This is one of the reasons Trump continues to make such strides toward a potential presidential candidacy.

Internet search engines may be influencing elections

Biased search results increased the number of undecided voters choosing the favored candidate by 48% compared with a control group that saw an equal mix of both candidates throughout the list. Very few subjects noticed they were being manipulated, but those who did were actually more likely to vote in line with the biased results. “We expect the search engine to be making wise choices,” Epstein says. “What they’re saying is, ‘Well yes, I see the bias and that’s telling me … the search engine is doing its job.’”

...

“In a two-person race, a candidate can only count on getting half of the uncommitted votes, which is worthless. With the help of biased search rankings, a candidate might be able to get 90% of the uncommitted votes [in select demographics],” Epstein explains.

...

Presumably Google isn’t intentionally tweaking its algorithms to favor certain presidential candidates, but Epstein says it would extremely difficult to tell if it were.

The Liberation of US Foreign Policy

Once we defeat the Israeli-directed attempt to derail the Iran deal in Congress we can safely go out into the streets declaiming: Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we’re free at last!

The Iran deal is a turning point in US foreign policy, and its approval by Congress will represent a sea change in American politics: it will mark nothing less than a day of liberation which future generations might dub “VI Day” – victory over Israel day.

The signing of the Iran deal, and its probable approval by Congress – it doesn’t look like the War Party has the votes to overturn it – heralds the victory of the countercoup, i.e. the overthrow of the Lobby’s stranglehold and the eventual restoration of a pro-American foreign policy. This was evident in practically every line of President Obama’s recent speech at American University, and the text deserves closer examination than it has so far gotten.
