Donald Trump on Sunday blasted "corrupt Mexican officials" for letting a notorious drug kingpin escape from a maximum security prison.

Prosecutors indict Romania's prime minister in wide-ranging corruption probe

Romanian prosecutors indicted Prime Minister Victor Ponta on Monday as part of a wide-ranging corruption investigation and seized his assets, putting further pressure on him to resign.

Prosecutors said Ponta has been indicted on charges including tax evasion, money laundering, conflict of interest and making false statements while he was working as a lawyer in 2007 and 2008. At the time, Ponta was a lawmaker. He denies wrongdoing.

Prosecutors also said in a statement Monday that they temporarily froze Ponta's personal assets which include shares in a house, an apartment and several bank accounts. He sold two apartments in May for 150,000 euros ($170,000) and also sold a car.

Ponta, who took office in 2012, is the first sitting Romania prime minister to be indicted and have his assets seized.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It seems that the Queen of the Coup Victoria Nuland has been spending time in Romania!

US-Israeli Imperialists Plot Downfall of Syria and Iran

A 12 Step Guide to the EU’s Crisis of Political Responsibility

Progressive social movements have long expressed support for ‘another Europe’. Their almost unanimous support for the Greek referendum’s ‘no’ vote against the Troika proposal for further austerity policies speaks volumes about the frustration of building a Europe from below.

Tories backtrack on plans for English votes for English laws

British Prime Minister David Cameron had promised voters to implement the plans in his first 100 days in office.

The decision to delay the plans comes amid concerns that the government was facing a defeat by excluding Scottish MPs from certain votes in Parliament.

One Presidential Candidate Just Promised To Wage War In 4 Different Countries

Everywhere Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) looks in the world, he sees a crisis, and believes these combined crises could soon “throw the world into chaos we haven’t seen since WWII.”
In his first major foreign policy speech as a presidential candidate, Graham told a packed room at the Atlantic Council think tank in D.C. what he would do if he became Commander in Chief, a list that tilted heavily to where he would use military force.
Though he rattled off a laundry list of threats to U.S. national security throughout his speech, Graham called the current diplomatic negotiations with Iran “the greatest existential threat to world order” and “North Korea in the making.”
“I don’t mind Iran or any other nation having a nuclear power program for peaceful reasons,” he said. But if the current negotiations produce a deal that doesn’t include the ability for the U.S. to inspect Iran’s nuclear reactors “anytime, anywhere,” Graham would resort to “overwhelming” military force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how many stocks in defense industries Graham posesses, and how his personal profits will rise if, through some horrible nightmare scenario, he becomes the Republican's candidate for President, and gets elected.

And let's not pretend that we have not seen this before, someone originally considered "unelectable" by many, actually getting elected; remember George W. Bush's "election" (or, appointment, by the Supremes)?!?

Although Graham has served in the military (as a JAG for the Air Force), he personally has never seen combat.

And it strikes me that those candidates who have never been in the middle of a war zone are generally the most bloodthirsty about wanting to declare war on other countries, rather than try to do the adult, civilized thing by negotiation.

Hillary Clinton openly courting American Jews for their money, say critics

In an attempt to repair the damage done to the United States-Israeli relationship by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Hillary Clinton is attempting to convince Zionists and their supporters she truly loves Israel. According to the Jewish news media on Thursday, the presidential candidate, who possesses a reputation for having a casual relationship with truth, is telling deep-pocketed Jews that she would be more faithful to the Jewish State than her former boss, Barack Obama. But critics, especially Jewish hawks, claim that former President Bill Clinton and his female mirror image, Hillary, are the most successful 'con artists' in the political arena today.

Donald Trump Refuses to Apologize, DESTROYS Pro-Amnesty Critics With 7 Words!

After noting the high crime rate among illegal immigrants – including rapists and murderers – Amnesty advocates have been demanding he apologize. After all, lawbreakers usually continue breaking laws.

But Trump is not backing down! His response to a Fox News host was: “I can never apologize for the truth.”

Despite GOP pressure, Donald Trump not backing off immigration rhetoric

A day after the Republican National Committee chairman asked the reality television star to tone down his rhetoric, Trump refused to back off his portrayal of Mexican immigrants as criminals. At the same time, he vowed to file paperwork next week ensuring he would qualify for next month's Republican presidential debate, where his hardline immigration policies could emerge as a focus on national television.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nor should he! The corporate media is smearing Trump by claiming that he said ALL illegal immigrants are criminals. (Technically, all illegal immigrants are criminals by virtue of the fact that they are here in the US illegally in the first place.) That isn't what Trump said. He said that a large number of them are criminals, and the statistics on crimes committed by illegals supports him. The Politically Correct anti-truth people are afraid of Trump because he has the backbone to talk about what is really going wrong with this nation, rather than toe the accepted party doctrine. I fully expect the GOP to give Trump the Ron Paul treatment and eject him from the race as quickly as they can because he is a threat to the status-quo! Trump may go third party and despite my earlier misgivings about him, I will support him in 2016 if for no other reason than to force the political machine and the American people to confront the non-politically-correct reality of what has been going on! .

Jesus camp for adults seeks to impose Christianity on the US by converting 1,000 pastors into politicians

Some 300 evangelical pastors convened in Orlando on Friday with a single goal in mind: To learn how to adapt their preaching and outreach skills for the pursuit of political office. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, himself a former Southern Baptist minister, was slated to the give the keynote address.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, here's the deal. I am a Christian (a Methodist to be precise), but this kind of thinking scares the stuffing out of me.

There is a movement in the religous right in this country, to turn it into a Christian Theocracy, and replace the Constitution and Bill of Rights with Biblical dictates.

The movement is called "Dominionism", and has been highly effective in hijacking Pentecostal churches, one of which has been attended by Sarah Palin in Wasilla.

As reported in alternet.org in 2008:

The Third Wave is a revival of the theology of the Latter Rain tent revivals of the 1950s and 1960s led by William Branham and others. It is based on the idea that in the end times there will be an outpouring of supernatural powers on a group of Christians that will take authority over the existing church and the world. The believing Christians of the world will be reorganized under the Fivefold Ministry and the church restructured under the authority of Prophets and Apostles and others anointed by God. The young generation will form "Joel's Army" to rise up and battle evil and retake the earth for God. While segments of this belief system have been a part of Pentecostalism and charismatic beliefs for decades, the excesses of this movement were declared a heresy in 1949 by the General Council of the Assemblies of God, and again condemned through Resolution 16 in 2000.

In my world, I want faith to be by invitation and love; not coersion. I shudder to think what will happen to this country if these people are able to take it over.

Why Donald Trump MAY win in 2016 – US Veterans, the Latino vote & the 2nd Amendment – Trump slams NBC out of park

I never thought I’d say it much less think it but, after watching the entire 29 minute video below with Donald Trump and NBC News, I really think that if we’re able to hold on to 2016 and actually have the presidential election, Donald Trump will be the man who’s at the helm at the end trying to right this sinking ship.

Ex-Politicians Profit Off the Misery They Caused

As nauseating as that figure is – plus another $50,000 for a previous Laura Bush speech – the news has earned more attention because of the audience the Bushes had. That would be Helping a Hero, a controversy-dogged nonprofit which helps severely injured veterans from the War on Terror afford disability accessible houses, attend family counseling.

Lindsey Graham: Trump Is Going To Kill The Party

Senator and Presidential hopeful Lindsey Graham told CNN that Trump's anti-Mexican rant is killing the GOP. Graham has a history with The Donald, who helped him to be elected before, but said even though Trump has done wonderful things, his remarks about illegal immigrants is destroying the GOP's chances at taking back the White House:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yep; the GOP is going to give Trump the Ron Paul treatment!

JFK: Judyth Vary Baker cements Oswald in the Doorway (therefore he could not have shot JFK)

Among the most contentious issues in JFK research has been whether Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of JFK, was caught in a famous photo taken by AP photographer James “Ike” Altgens in (what is known as) the Altgens6. The question is of enormous importance, since, if he was in the doorway at the time, he could not have been on the 6th floor shooting at JFK.

It therefore gives me great pleasure to report that the issue has been decisively settled by new research from Judyth Vary Baker. Lee not only cannot have been “the lone assassin”–he cannot even have been a shooter! He was innocent of the assassination of JFK. He said he was “the patsy” and that he had been in the doorway with Bill Shelly during the shooting, which has been proven–objectively and scientifically, through collaborative research–to be true.

Senior British Police Chief Charged in Massive Sex Abuse Inquiry

A senior British police chief was charged with the rape and sexual assault of three boys Thursday, just hours after a massive public inquiry into child sex abuse was officially opened.

Gordon Anglesea, 78, a senior policeman in Wales for 34 years, is accused of abusing three boys between the ages of 11 and 16 in the late 1970s and ’80s.

The NeoCons’ Confederate Problem—and America’s

Since the Charleston shootings, GOP officials have been scrambling to comply with Leftist demands that Southern Whites be stripped of visible signs of their Confederate heritage. The GOP has actually been downplaying the Confederacy for years—Jeb Bush conspicuously removed Confederate banners and insignias from the Florida statehouse back in 2001. [Jeb Bush Ordered The Confederate Flag Removed From Florida Capitol 14 Years Ago, By Scott Conroy,Huffingtonpost.Com, June 19, 2015] (But the GOP’s efforts to dump the Mississippi state flag i ncluding the Southern Cross were frustrated when a majority of the population, including almost a quarter of the black population, voted to retain it).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, apparently the GOP figured that if they got rid of the Confederate flag, the black population would forget all about the economy, the wars, the pandering to Israel, etc. and blindly vote for them? That strikes me as a dangerous degree of naivete!

Poll: Trump leads GOP field in North Carolina

Donald Trump is leading the Republican field in North Carolina, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The billionaire businessman has the support of 16 percent of GOP primary voters in the Tar Heel State in the latest survey from left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP).

The poll comes with Trump mired in controversy over his recent remarks on Hispanics and immigration from Mexico.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump is leading because he has the spine to talk about real problems and not be a politically-correct wimp like all the other candidates. I am starting to like the guy. But he will no doubt get the Ron Paul treatment from the corporate media and the party machines!

Feds want Medicare doctors to talk about death

This highly controversial proposal to foster end-of-life planning discussions -- which Sarah Palin and Republican lawmakers decried as creating "death panels" in 2009 -- would pay doctors to have 30-minute meetings with patients and family members to discuss so-called advance directives. This includes specifying the patient's wishes concerning medical care and life support measures and designating a health care proxy if the patient is unable to make decisions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Look, these people are costing us money, and they are never going to be able to work again and produce a profit. These old sick people are pure economic loss, plain and simple, and we just have to cull the herd, just like we do with sheep, cattle, and chickens. The new policy under the New World Order is easy enough to understand; as long as you are generating wealth, you live. If you can;t, you die. Why is that so hard for people to accept?" -- Official White Horse Souse

The Lincoln controversy…

As Thomas DiLorenzo and a number of non-court historians have conclusively established, Lincoln did not invade the Confederacy in order to free the slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation did not occur until 1863 when opposition in the North to the war was rising despite Lincoln’s police state measures to silence opponents and newspapers. The Emancipation Proclamation was a war measure issued under Lincoln’s war powers. The proclamation provided for the emancipated slaves to be enrolled in the Union army replenishing its losses. It was also hoped that the proclamation would spread slave revolts in the South while southern white men were away at war and draw soldiers away from the fronts in order to protect their women and children. The intent was to hasten the defeat of the South before political opposition to Lincoln in the North grew stronger.

Sanders is leftwing on economic issues, but sees Israel as up against ISIS

Bernie Sanders! Paleeeeze!

Maybe you’re as excited as I am over the entry of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders into the presidential race. A socialist at heart, Sanders is actually going to push issues of income disparity and globalization into the US mainstream discourse, and in the wake of Baltimore will explain to Americans how our national community has been fractured, the middle class shattered, and the poor oppressed.

But I’ve seen no one apart from Juan Cole, in this excellent summary of Sanders’s Middle East views, point out his yeoman defense of Israel during its assault on Gaza last summer.

Hillary Clinton Supports Illegal Israeli Settlements

Clinton's support for Israel is unwavering - one-sided like virtually everyone else in Washington. Palestinian rights don't matter except at times paying them disingenuous lip service.

As a New York senator (from January 2001 - January 2009), Clinton said "undivided Jerusalem as (Israel's) capital…must never be questioned" - or its status as "a Jewish state," regardless of its large Arab population on privately owned land and recognition under international law as an international city under a UN protectorate.

She supported cutting off Palestinian aid - ignoring the harm it would cause. She outspokenly defended unrestricted Israeli West Bank colonization - on stolen Palestinian land.

She believes it's as much an Israeli right as statehood for Palestinians. She moderated her tone slightly as Secretary of State (January 2009 - February 2013).

To facilitate passage of TPP, U.S. upgrades Malaysia in annual human trafficking report

The United States is upgrading Malaysia from the lowest tier on its list of worst human trafficking centers, U.S. sources said on Wednesday, a move that could smooth the way for an ambitious U.S.-led free-trade deal with the Southeast Asian nation and 11 other countries. The upgrade to so-called "Tier 2 Watch List" status removes a potential barrier to President Barack Obama's signature global trade deal.

Russian Gays Now Fleeing to Isis! What Next From the Daily Mail’s Anti-Russian Corps?

How bad is it, you ask? Worse than ISIS! After I recovered from Daily Mail-induced brain freeze, I double-checked see if this was actually The Onion. But nay! Their lead –“Transsexual and her gay friend persecuted in Russian village decide to head to Syria to join ISIS” is a next level misdirect, because DM knows full well that all people are going to do is read “Transsexual” “gay” “persecuted” “Russia” and “ISIS” and freak out. At the tail end of the headline, they tack on that the pair is “unaware that the terror group throws homosexuals to their death from tall buildings.”

Cop Decapitates Army Vet With Cruiser on the Way to a Call, Doesn’t Render Aid, Speeds Off

Bill McIntyre was a hard-working retired Army veteran who built fences for living. Because of the negligent actions of a Tampa cop, this 60-year-old man is now dead. He left behind his wife, three sons, a daughter, and two grandchildren. On the night of June 28, McIntire was on his way home when a Florida detective was on his way to a call of about a robbery. On the way to the call, the officer struck McIntire, decapitating him, and then sped off. He never stopped to help nor did he report striking anything with his cruiser.

Shocking figures were released yesterday regarding the number of MPs that hold landlord status in the UK. It has come to light that 20% of all MPs own rental properties compared to just 3% of people across the population as a whole.

You may recall that during his budget speech, George Osborne said:

Jeb Bush: “People Need to Work Longer Hours.” Media Soften It.

Jeb Bush, on July 8th:

“My aspiration for the country, and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours, and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families. That’s the only way we’re going to get out of this rut that we’re in.”

Cyber Guard Exercise Simulated Attacks On Critical Infrastructure

WEBMASTER ADDITION: So maybe they broke into OPM's database, and China gets the blame. Because if you think about it, stealing blackmail information only has value if nobody knows the crime took place. The blackmailer is very selective and only steals what they need, to minimize the risk of detection. Stealing tens of millions of records is intended to be noticed! That is why I do not think China had anything to do with this.
