"Wrong Way Gartman" ...

McDonald’s has been in the news a lot this month, thanks to big changes the fast-food company is making to several of its menu offerings.
The company began making these changes more than a year ago, when it replaced margarine with real butter in its Egg McMuffins, and added kale and spinach to the iceberg lettuce in its salads. (Those kale salads wound up being higher in calories than McDonald’s famous Big Macs, though.) 
To commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the first Bikini Atoll nuclear tests, the nonprofit National Security Archive has published declassified footage of the Able and Baker “shots” in the summer of 1946. –Maritime Executive
These new photos and films of the Bikini Atoll atom bomb blast seem artifical.
The most obvious, apparent fakery can be seen in the “Baker” atom-bomb test, HERE. The nuclear blast emerges from the water (the bomb was some 30 meters down) and looks exactly like other images of nuclear explosions.
It doesn’t seem hampered by the water at all. The plumes are the same, the smoke is the same.
But it gets even stranger.

Leftists and corporate media talking heads are en mass losing their minds over comments made by Donald Trump yesterday that ‘Second Amendment people could stop Hillary’, suggesting that Trump was calling for Clinton to be assassinated. Yet, it is obvious that Trump was suggesting no such thing, and it’s deliciously ironic that in 2008 Hillary literally said that her opponent, then Senator Obama, could be assassinated in a Robert Kennedy like hit.
As both Trump’s running mate Mike Pence, and several others have pointed out, Trump was talking about Hillary’s pledge to enact strict gun control, and the fact that gun owners could stop her by voting against her.
“I think what Donald Trump is clearly saying was that people who cherish that right, people who believe that firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens make our communities more safe, not less safe, should be involved in the political process and let their voice be heard,” Pence said.
I call BULLSHIT...
Is the city of Chicago about to see a wave of unprecedented chaos and violence? The facts that I am about to share with you may seem fantastical at first glance, but they come from the Chicago police and they are being reported by the mainstream media. According to authorities, at a recent gathering of major gangs in the city it was agreed that they would use automatic weapons against the police, and at least one of the gangs already has “a sniper in place” but officials do not know where that sniper is located. As I have warned before, a spirit of violence and civil unrest is rising in America, and the number of police officers that were shot and killed during the first half of 2016 was 78 percent higher than during the first half of 2015. Anyone that does not understand that we have a major problem on our hands has simply not been paying attention.
Sailors And Marines Can Officially Declare They Are Transgenders This Fall … Before declaring transgender status, these service-members have to be at the start, in the middle of, or finished transitioning. Only then will they be able to ask for a formal gender switch in the database system, Navy Times reports. –Daily Caller
It is helpful for transgender people that the Pentagon now has a policy for them if they are in the service. In fact, it is surely a lingering and personal tragedy for those who feel they are the wrong sex.
But the bigger issue regarding the Pentagon is its immense and murderous corruption. In some sense, news like this is being promoted to distract us from the Pentagon’s ongoing problems.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange floated the possibility on Tuesday that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was an informant for the organization.
“Whistleblowers often take very significant efforts to bring us material and often at very significant risks,” Assange said in an interview to be aired Tuesday on the Dutch television program Nieuwsuur. “There’s a 27-year-old who works for the DNC and who was shot in the back, murdered, just a few weeks ago, for unknown reasons as he was walking down the streets in Washington.”
Seth Rich, a DNC employee who did voter outreach, was shot to death last month early in the morning in Washington, D.C. The case is unsolved and police have speculated it was an attempted robbery.
