Less than a month to go before the election, the revelations are piling up.
Bombshell after bombshell has come out from the latest round of Wikileaks documents about Hillary.
What the GOP could get from testimony and official investigative vetting of the former Secretary of State has been produced by the robin hoods of the digital age.
Despite clear evidence that the future Madam President has colluded with unsavory foreign leaders, traded access for cash and engaged in an enterprising empire of cronyism in toppling countries and exchanging no-bid contracts to manage the messes made all across the globe… and obviously much, much more… despite all this, Hillary remains closer than ever to the coveted White House, the prime lobbyist-in-chief office for the military industrial complex and various other related tentacles of the establishment.
from Friends of Syria:
And you would vote for her to be president??? I can hear it now...
Oh wait... Did I launch Nuclear Missiles? I can't remember...Yes Madam President... and you targeted Capitol Hill... Why would I target Capitol Hill? because they overrode your Veto...
Hillary Answers Judicial Watch Under Oath - "Does Not Recall" Most Of Her Tenure As Secretary Of State
The Day Has Arrived: As Of Today Prime Money Markets Can Suspend Withdrawals - Here Are The Implications
The Internet has lately been filled with pictures of American military pilots rushing towards US warplanes closely resembling Russia’s Su-34, painted in a recognizable light blue paint scheme that has never been used in the US military, but is routinely used by the Russian Air Force.
But this was not a demonstration of US pilots finally filling the seats of Russian hardware, provoked by the fact that US military contractors failed to deliver a competitive fifth-generation fighter, alas. Though it’s true that the Lockheed Martin F-35 has been a bitter failure riddled by criticism from all sides, including the American “hawk in chief” – Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Armed Services, John McCain.
The craze reached a whole new level this week in the US after Newsweek magazine essentially accused one of the two main presidential candidates, Donald Trump, of being a puppet that recites “Putin propaganda,” and much of American mainstream media lined up to support this notion without considering the evidence.
One of the few who challenged this narrative, despite hardly being a Trump supporter, was Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald.
On Monday this week, Newsweek published an article by Kurt Eichenwald that accused Sputnik of feeding the Trump campaign anti-Clinton talking points. Despite the fact that these allegations were based on a coincidence — that both Trump and a Sputnik writer saw the same tweet, which Trump later quoted — the US media seized on the opportunity, shoehorning it into a broader narrative about Russia’s alleged involvement in the US election.
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released hidden camera video on Thursday, which shows Wisconsin’s Russ Feingold, a Democratic challenger for U.S. Senate, telling a Palo Alto, California, fundraiser that Hillary Clinton might use an executive order to enforce gun control.
In a video shot during the fundraiser, O’Keefe asks Feingold, “If there’s still Republican control in Congress, and if Hillary is elected, is there anything she can do could do to, uh…”. Feingold jumps in and says, “Well, there might be executive order.”
Nick Giambruno: Doug, you predicted the fall of the European Union a few years ago. What has changed since then?
Doug Casey: Well, what’s changed is that the entire situation has gotten much worse. The inevitable has now become the imminent.
The European Union evolved, devolved actually, from basically a free trade pact among a few countries to a giant, dysfunctional, overreaching bureaucracy. Free trade is an excellent idea. However, you don’t need to legislate free trade; that’s almost a contradiction in terms. A free trade pact between different governments is unnecessary for free trade. An individual country interested in prosperity and freedom only needs to eliminate all import and export duties, and all import and export quotas. When a country has duties or quotas, it’s essentially putting itself under embargo, shooting its economy in the foot. Businesses should trade with whoever they want for their own advantage.
First of all, I want to say thanks for all the well-wishes.
I’ve been flat on my back for the past several days with a particularly nasty case of the flu that I likely contracted en route to Los Angeles last week.
Picking up the occasional bug is one of the hazards of spending a lot of time on planes… plus I have some special luck with airlines for always being seated next to a guy who sneezes with the explosiveness and ferocity of a biological terrorist.
But, now that I’m better and getting brought up to speed, one of the things that caught my attention this morning was that the US government’s debt level has soared to just a hair under $19.7 trillion.
Washington, D.C. – A high-ranking FBI official has blown the whistle on what they say was a politically motivated, top-down decision to not recommend Hillary Clinton face criminal charges for her mishandling of classified intelligence.
The anonymous source that worked intimately on the Clinton investigation told Fox News that FBI agents working the case, as well as DOJ attorneys on the case, unanimously believed that Clinton should have her security clearance revoked, with the “vast majority” believing she should be criminally charged.
Make no mistake, sterling’s collapse is a very serious development, and has serious consequences for sterling interest rates.
While it is becoming apparent that interest rates are going to have to rise possibly for all currencies on a one-year view, sterling’s problems are the consequence of bad judgement, and perhaps intellectual arrogance on the part of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee. The MPC in turn is not and cannot be independent from the influence of Mark Carney, the Bank’s Governor, who made the expensive error of intervening in the Remain campaign.
Following a renewal of Turkish-Russian relations, Turkey has taken a diplomatic stance regarding the Syrian conflict, warning against serious consequences if the five-year civil war is not resolved. Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus warned this week that the Syrian proxy war between the U.S. and Russia could lead to worldwide conflict between the two powers.
“If the proxy war continues, after this, let me be clear, America and Russia will come to a point of war,” the Deputy Prime Minister stated.
The music and lyrics of Bob Dylan have been an important part of my life for almost two decades now. With today’s news that he has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, I’ve decided to us it as an excuse to share the lyrics to his timeless 1963 classic: Masters of War.
Masters of War
Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks
