Is "Special Government Employee" Huma Abedin The Smoking Gun In Hillary's "Pay-To-Play" Scheme?

Having previously warned that Hillary "is often confused," Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin - previously best known for standing by her husband Anthony Weiner after his sexting scandal - is now at the center of the Clinton Foundation - State Department debacle. As Bloomberg reports, for the final eight months of Clinton's reign as Secretary of State, Abedin worked for both The Clinton Foundation and as a "special government employee" at The State Department.

FBI To Hand Over Clinton Email Probe Files To Congress

In what may be some overdue, and much needed transparency, the WSJ reports that the FBI will "hand over" its Clinton email probe files to Congress. Actually, in retrospect, don't hold your breath for any new revelations for one simple reason: there will be no actual testimony.

After Slamming IEX, Nasdaq Launches Product For Traders Seeking To Avoid HFTs Frontrunning

Treatise on Money Storage

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
It’s very early Monday, and I’m “up and at em’” because I feel so passionate about today’s topic.  The day’s just started, but despite the 153rd “Sunday Night Sentiment” raid (actually, a mere “capping” this time), and 681st “2:15 AM” EST attack of the past 784 trading days, gold is back over $1,340/oz, and silver again challenging the Cartel’s maniacal “line in the sand” at $20/oz.  As it should, as per yesterday’s “gold panic-selling” article, last week – particularly, Friday afternoon – was one of the most egregious Cartel manipulations I have seen.  Let alone, as the weekend’s only “news” was that Japan’s 2Q GDP was a much lower than expected 0.0% – just like in Animal House, LOL.  And FYI, care of history’s most insanely stupid monetary policy, the Bank of Japan, which is already a top 10 holder of more than three-quarters of the Nikkei’s 225 stocks, is projected to be the top holder of a quarter of the Nikkei’s stocks by the end of next year – at one fell swoop, exposing the “myth of QE to Infinity” and launching Japan’s “end game of communism.”

Don't Expect A Return To A Gold Standard Any Time Soon

Under the current academic environment, as generations have been misinformed, deceived, and lied to, it is unlikely that a return to a gold standard will take place.  Until the intellectual battle is won, paper money and the central banksters that manage it will continue their reign of financial terror.

Sweden: Report "Conclusions Are Frightening" Amid Summer Inferno Of Sexual Assaults

The results of a recent report, "The current situation regarding sexual assault and proposals for action" expose the problems in Sweden and the conclusions are frightening.

With $128 Billion In Equity Outflows, Barclays Asks "Who's Buying Stocks" And Gives An Answer

It has been one of the greater paradoxes of the record S&P rally from the February lows: how has the market continued to rise even with unprecedented outflows?

Russian Stocks Soar To Record Highs - Up 60% Since White House "Sell" Order

Russia's MICEX stock index rallied to all-time record highs today. This is likely very disconcerting for The White House as since the March 2014 lows when they issued the following statement: "If I were you, I wouldn't invest in Russian equities right now," Russian stocks are up 60% - tripling the 19% gains in the S&P off those lows...

Convicted Spy Is Using Hillary's "Lack Of Intent" Defense To Seek Leniency

A Navy sailor who has pleaded guilty to espionage charges for photographing classified areas of a nuclear submarine is citing Hillary Clinton’s email setup in an effort to avoid jail time. Lawyers for Kristian Saucier told a federal court in Connecticut on Friday that the Justice Department’s decision not to press charges against Clinton, despite the existence of classified material on more than 100 messages on her machine, was one of several cases that should compel a reduced sentence.

Milwaukee Blacks Attack Whites Because “The Rich People Are Not Trying To Give Us None”

from ZeroHedge:
According to the government’s official data, the number of unemployed black Americans is at its lowest since 2007 seemingly confirming President Obama’s narrative that “everything is awesome.” So, we wondered, if everything’s awesome and everyone’s got a job, why are black Americans rioting in Milwaukee?
Here is the answer in one chart and one short sentence from a Milwaukee protester…
Jobs are not fungible… Since President Obama was elected, black Americans may have seen their joblessness decline – but since President Obama was elected, income inequality for black Americans has soared…

Pentagon Refuses to Disclose How Many U.S. Troops Are Fighting ISIS

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
The United States will deploy dozens of special operations forces to northern Syria to advise opposition forces in their fight against Islamic State, a major policy shift for President Barack Obama and a step he has long resisted to avoid getting dragged into another war in the Middle East.
Given this new “strategy,” if we can even call it that, I thought it’d be useful to share with readers the 16 times Obama has publicly promised over the last couple of years to not send ground forces into Syria.
From last year’s post: Obama Announces “Boots on the Ground” in Syria, Despite Promising “No Boots on the Ground” 16 Times

9 Indisputable Truths About “Conspiracy Theorists”

by Paul Philips, Activist Post:
The day the masses wake up and understand what the term “conspiracy theory” really means and recognise the truth about “conspiracy theorists,” who they are, what they stand for, the world ruling elite’s hold on humanity will be over. Their deceptive cover would have been blown wide open and indeed there will be consequences.
So, in light of the above, here are 9 indisputable truths about “conspiracy theorists.”
“Conspiracy theorists”
1. …have to put up with much ignorance, and as a knee-jerk reaction, baseless accusation of “conspiracy theory.” “Conspiracy theory” carries with it the deriding insinuation that there are no conspiracies (no conspiracy facts, just theory). Who could be so brainwashed, unquestioningly ignorant, or na├»ve enough to believe that no country has ever conspired??

Americans Are Ticked: Email Leaks Explode As Elite Prep For Their Final Deadliest Move In Response

from Lisa Haven:

The Government Is Stealing Private Assets At Record Rates

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
The American economy is living on borrowed time through the infusion of massive amounts of “printed out of thin air” cash being printed by the Federal Reserve. Anyone with an IQ above room temperature knows that the inevitable economic crash is looming on the horizon. The deficit is $19 trillion dollars, and soon-t0-be $21 trillion dollars, and that is the good news. The unfunded liabilities debt (e.g. Social Security, Medicare, etc.) is estimated to be $240 trillion dollars. Finally, the derivatives debt that average citizens have been saddled with the burden of paying off through the infamous bailouts is now estimated to $1.5 quadrillion dollars. With the most optimistic estimates that the world’s GDP is less that $100 trillion dollars, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that the ability to pay off the debt through taxation and the endless bailouts is simply not possible.

"People Just Hate Us" - Local Muslims Demand Answers After Hispanic Man's Arrest For NY Imam Slaying

The murder of a New York City imam and his assistant has added further fuel to the islamaphobic America meme but the arrest of a hispanic individual last night somewhat breaks the narrative that this is Trump's fault, proclaimed by many local muslims in the immediate aftermath. An NYPD spokesman also said they didn’t believe the victims had been targeted for being Muslim, but, as one worshipper exclaimed,"this was a hate crime. One hundred percent, there's no doubt about it."
