"Why Huma Needed A 10,000 Email 'Life Insurance' Folder', What They Found Is FAR Worse"

"Clinton Campaign Chairman E-mail:
 'Foreign Govt Donors: all the money is in.'"
by Newsroom

"Get out the handcuffs and put them on Hillary Clinton, right now, today. An email from Bill Clinton's Chief of Staff, Tina Flourney to Hillary Clinton's Campaign Chairman, John Podesta, dated February 2015 is quite direct- "Foreign Govt donors: all the money is in." 

OK, so now that we know for an absolute fact that the Chairman of the Hillary Clinton for President Campaign had been told "all the money is in" from "foreign govt donors" we have to ask: What did that foreign govt money buy? Did Hillary sell access? Did Hillary sell US Secrets? Did Hillary offer to go to war in Syria for a natural gas pipeline? What the hell did that money buy?

It is absolutely illegal for a candidate to political office in the United States to solicit OR ACCEPT donations from foreign citizens, never mind foreign GOVERNMENTS. What has taken place here appears to be a serious crime.  

Here is a direct link to the WikiLeaks email revelation, as hacked from the computer of Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta HEREHere is a screen shot of the actual email proving that Hillary Clinton's Presidential Campaign is involved with foreign Government donations:

Accepting donations from foreigners is a federal political campaign law violation. What were those foreign governments buying when they gave that money to Hillary? We could be looking at actual TREASON here!

But what else they found is far worse...

International Pedophile Ring: Child Smuggling And Child Sex Ring Involving "Dozens of Members of Congress, the US Justice Department, Federal Judges, High-ranking Military Officers and Many Others in Government; as well as very well known figures in the main stream media."

The New York Police Department (NYPD) Special Victims Unit (SVU) is investigating former US Congressman Anthony Weiner for allegedly sexting a 15 year old girl in North Carolina seeking sex. During that investigation NYPD SVU sought and got the laptop computer used by Anthony Weiner and they began looking through it. They came upon a huge trove of US government emails, involving Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, the closest aide and confidant of Hillary Clinton. This laptop is where the 650,000 new emails came from, prompting the FBI to announce the other day that they were re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

However, NYPD SVU sources told SuperStation95 that what they found is far worse than foreign cash or classified emails; they "came upon evidence of an international child smuggling and child sex ring" involving "very high profile people, candidates for high elected office, and current holders of high elected office at the federal and state levels, as well as other persons." These officials allegedly did their child sex through a guy named Epstein who allegedly ran a "Lolita Express" plane service to take these high-elected officials to and from foreign countries to have sex with underage children!

The SVU source also claims there is photographic and video evidence on Weiners laptop, showing these high elected officials, and certain people who are seeking election, engaged in sex acts with young children!

This is not merely something allegedly involving the Clintons. Our source in SVU said it also allegedly involves "dozens of members of Congress, officials in the US Justice Department, federal judges, high-ranking military officers and many others in government; as well as very well known figures in the main stream media." NYPD SVU confirms that they contacted the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York in New York City over the discovery of the US Government communications on Weiner's laptop AND about the child sex ring.  

Another source familiar with the situation in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, told SuperStation95 on condition of strict confidentiality: "It's all true. No one knows what to do because if the American people find out how sick and deviant these people are, and what they've been doing, the entire federal government will be brought down."

Perhaps that is exactly what needs to happen? Are we ripe for a US Military Coup to restore the republic if justice and rule of law are not followed?"

"Bill Clinton was Frequent Flier- 26 Times- on Pedophile’s Private Jet ‘Lolita Express.’ 
by RT, Radar

"Between 2001 and 2003, while Hillary was serving as a US Senator, Bill took a number of “extended junkets” around the world with the hedge fund manager. There were also a number of other passengers identified on the manifests, usually with their initials or first name, including one named “Tatiana.” Clinton reportedly ditched his Secret Service detail for at least five flights, even though there does not appear to be any of the required paperwork for signing the detail off. The flight logs showing those traveling with Clinton on board the plane, which reportedly had a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls as young as 12, included socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who prosecutors believe procured underage girls for Epstein.

The FBI began investigating Epstein in 2006 when evidence emerged showing dozens of young girls may have been used as sex slaves by him and his famous friends. A total of 40 women were identified by the FBI as having been illegally procured by Epstein, but a "sweetheart deal" in 2008 led to his single solicitation charge and short sentence. The arrangement saw authorities agree not to press any criminal charges against "any potential co-conspirators of Epstein.” Epstein served 13 months for soliciting “prostitutes” as young as 14 and is now a registered sex offender. The billionaire was also registered as a “Tier 1” sex offender.

More questions arose over the relationship between Epstein and the Clintons, leading him to plead the fifth when asked if he knew the former president personally during a separate case in 2010 and 2011 when he was sued by some of his alleged victims. Last year, it emerged that Epstein allegedly transferred $3.5 million from his secret Swiss bank account to the Clinton Foundation around the same time as the FBI began investigating him.

One of the prosecutors involved in Epstein’s “sweetheart deal,” Matt Menchel, contributed $1,000 to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid and $2,500 to Democratic Florida Senator Bill Nelson, who in April was tipped to be Hillary’s running mate. He also sent $25,000 to a separate Clinton charity in July 2006, reported Radar."

And NOW you know why Huma Abedin kept a 10,000 email "dead-mans switch" folder named "Life Insurance" on her computer. Besides treason and other crimes, her computer has evidence of an international child smuggling and child sex pedophile ring involving "dozens of members of Congress, the US Justice Department, Federal Judges, High-ranking military officers and many others in Government; as well as very well known figures in the main stream media." Threaten all that, and with her immunity deal revoked, you might be "suicided" rather quickly...

Musical Interlude: "Watch Two Strangers Make Beautiful Music Together In A Paris Train Station"

"Watch Two Strangers Make Beautiful Music Together In A Paris Train Station"
Proof that music really is a universal language.
by Chloe Fox

"Music just makes everything better- even traveling through a busy and crowded train station. Which is precisely why French train company SNCF decided to put pianos smack dab in the middle of select train stations. The pianos- which are known as “À vous de jouer” pianos, or "It’s your turn to play"- are free for anyone to use, and lucky travelers in March of this year were treated to a real show when two complete strangers improvised a beautiful piece together. 


One man had just sat down at the piano and started playing what sounds like "Una Mattina" by Ludovico Einaudi when the second man, in the white shirt, approaches and observes admiringly. At the 1:10 mark, the second man jumps in, augmenting the original music. The two men barely look at each other as their composition grows, but more and more travelers stop to watch as it becomes obvious something beautiful is unfolding. The men really hit their stride around the 2:50 mark, then shake things up again around the 4:30 mark, at which point the entire train station seems to have stopped in awe of them. After their big finale, they finish with nothing more than some shy shrugs and a high-five, proving once again that music is not only universal, but truly magical. 

Correction: This article previously suggested that the music performed by the two men was improvised wholly on the spot. The music is likely based on "Una Mattina" by Ludovico Einaudi."
Since you insist...

"A Look to the Heavens"

"What does this aurora look like to you? While braving the cold to watch the skies above northern Canada early one morning in 2013, a most unusual aurora appeared. The aurora definitely appeared to be shaped like something , but what? Two ghostly possibilities recorded by the astrophotographer were "witch" and "goddess of dawn", but please feel free to suggest your own Halloween-enhanced impressions.

Regardless of fantastical pareidolic interpretations, the pictured aurora had a typical green color and was surely caused by the scientifically commonplace action of high energy particles from space interacting with oxygen in Earth's upper atmosphere. In the image foreground, at the bottom, is a frozen Alexandra Falls, while evergreen trees cross the middle.”

Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet- On Pain"

"The Prophet- On Pain"

"Your pain is the breaking of the shell
that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its
heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

And could you keep your heart in wonder
at the daily miracles of your life, your pain
would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your
heart, even as you have always accepted
the seasons that pass over your fields.
And you would watch with serenity
through the winters of your grief.

Pain is the bitter potion by which the
physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink
his remedy in silence and tranquility:
For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided
by the tenderness of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips,
has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter
has moistened with His own sacred tears."

~ Kahlil Gibran

The Poet: Herman Melville, “The Martyr”

“The Martyr”

“Good Friday was the day
Of the prodigy and crime,
When they killed him in his pity,
When they killed him in his prime
Of clemency and calm-
When with yearning he was filled
To redeem the evil-willed,
And, though conqueror, be kind;
But they killed him in his kindness,
In their madness and their blindness,
And they killed him from behind.

There is sobbing of the strong,
And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand:
Beware the People weeping
When they bare the iron hand.

He lieth in his blood-
The father in his face;
They have killed him, the Forgiver-
The Avenger takes his place,
The Avenger wisely stern,
Who in righteousness shall do
What the heavens call him to,
And the parricides remand;
For they killed him in his kindness,
In their madness and their blindness,
And his blood is on their hand.

There is sobbing of the strong,
And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand:
Beware the People weeping
When they bare the iron hand.”

- Herman Melville

Paulo Coelho, "Jante's Shield: The Law of Jante"

"Jante's Shield: The Law of Jante"
by Paulo Coelho

"'The Law of Jante?' Of course I had never heard of this, so he explained what it was. I continued on my journey and discovered it is hard to find anyone in any of the Scandinavian countries who does not know this law. Although the law exists since the beginning of civilization, it was only officially declared in 1933 by writer Aksel Sandemose in the novel “A Refugee Goes Beyond Limits.”

The sad truth is that the Law of Jante is a rule applied in every country in the world, despite the fact that Brazilians say that “this only happens here,” and the French claim that “unfortunately, that’s how it is in our country.” Now, the reader must be annoyed because he/she is already half way through the column and still does not know what the Law of Jante is all about, so I’ll try to explain it here briefly in my own words:


“You aren’t worth a thing, nobody is interested in what you think, 
mediocrity and anonymity are your best bet. 
If you act this way, you will never have any big problems in life.”

The Law of Jante focuses on the feeling of jealousy and envy that sometimes causes so much trouble for people. This is one of its negative aspects, but there is something far more dangerous. And this law is accountable for the world being manipulated in all possible manners by people who have no fear of what the others say and end up practicing the evil they desire. We have witnessed useless war in Iraq and elsewhere, which are still costing many lives; we see a huge abyss between the rich and the poor countries of the world, social injustice on all sides, unbridled violence, people being forced to give up their dreams because of unfair and cowardly attacks. Before starting the second world war, Hitler sent out several signals as to his intentions, and what encouraged him to go ahead was the knowledge that nobody would dare to defy him because of the Law of Jante.

Mediocrity may be comfortable, up to the day that tragedy knocks at the door and people start to wonder: “but why did nobody say anything, if everybody could see that this was going to happen?” Simple: nobody said anything because the others did not say anything either. So in order to prevent things from growing any worse, maybe this is the right moment to write the anti-Law of Jante:

“You are worth far more than you think. Your work and presence on this Earth are important, even though you may not think so. Of course, thinking in this way, you might have many problems because you are breaking the Law of Jante– but don’t feel intimidated by them, go on living without fear and in the end you will win.”

“Law of Jante”

"Sandemose wrote about the working class in the town of Jante, a group of people of the same social position. He expressly stated in later books that the social norms of Jante were universal and not intended to depict any particular town or country. It should be understood that Sandemose was seeking to formulate and describe attitudes that had already been part of the Danish and Norwegian psyche for centuries. Today, however, it is common in Scandinavia to claim the Law of Jante as something quintessentially Danish, Swedish, or Norwegian.

There are ten rules in the law as defined by Sandemose, all expressive of variations on a single theme and usually referred to as a homogeneous unit: You are not to think you're anyone special or that you're better than us. These ten principles or commandments are often claimed to form the "Jante's Shield" of the Scandinavian people. In the book, the Janters who transgress this unwritten 'law' are regarded with suspicion and some hostility, as it goes against the town's communal desire to preserve harmony, social stability and uniformity. The ten rules state:

"You're not to think you are anything special.
You're not to think you are as good as us.
You're not to think you are smarter than us.
You're not to convince yourself that you are better than us.
You're not to think you know more than us.
You're not to think you are more important than us.
You're not to think you are good at anything.
You're not to laugh at us.
You're not to think anyone cares about you.
You're not to think you can teach us anything."

An eleventh rule recognized in the novel as 'the penal code of Jante' is:
"Perhaps you don't think we know a few things about you?"

"Why Comey Did It: The Real Reason the FBI Moved on Hillary"

"Why Comey Did It: The Real Reason the FBI Moved on Hillary"
by Michael Covel

"Just when you thought the soap opera couldn’t get any more bizarre... On Friday, FBI director James Comey informed Congress he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. In a shocking twist in the case, agents investigating former congressman and resident pervert Anthony Weiner for “sexting” with a minor recovered one of his laptops containing thousands of emails… Among them were State Department-related emails from Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, a close aide to Clinton and a subject of the original investigation. This startling discovery jolted Comey into action just days before the election, turning the presidential race on its head.

Why Comey Did It: Predictably, Comey’s move made Clinton and her comrades in arms in the mainstream media go nuts. They had called Comey, who was nominated by President Obama, a paragon of integrity and virtue when he let Clinton off the hook just a few months ago. But now he was instantly relabeled a partisan hack trying to singlehandedly decide the election in Trump’s favor.

What the mainstream media has purposefully missed in their attacks on Comey is that he really had no choice. You see, The New York Times reports that these new emails were discovered by New York-based FBI agents weeks ago.

So why the delay in announcing it? Well, that’s where things get really interesting. According to The Wall Street Journal, the New York agents notified FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe of their blockbuster findings on October 3. But they couldn’t access the emails they found because searching through them wasn’t covered under their existing warrant for Weiner. They needed a new warrant. So what did McCabe do? Nothing. He sat on his hands. He never requested one. And nothing happened for weeks.

Why is this so important? Well, McCabe is the FBI official who oversaw the initial Clinton email investigation. He’s come under fire recently because his wife received $467,000 while running for the Virginia state senate from the political action committee (PAC) of longtime Clinton ally and current Virginia governor Terry McAullife. Clinton herself headlined a major fundraiser for that same PAC shortly before the group steered the cash to McCabe’s wife. So Mrs. McCabe received a huge sum of money from a close Clinton ally around the same time Mrs. Clinton was under an investigation led by Mr. McCabe.

The whole episode smells awful.

It’s therefore no shock to anyone who hasn’t had a full-frontal lobotomy why McCabe was in no rush to request a warrant for access to emails that may derail Clinton’s ambitions before Election Day. According to The Wall Street Journal, the only reason why a warrant was eventually requested in recent days was because “a member of the Justice department’s senior national-security staff asked for an update on the Weiner laptop. At that point, officials realized that no one had acted to obtain a warrant.”

Look, Comey’s not stupid. The Washington Post reported that he was only notified of the discovery of these new emails last Thursday. He knew the guy running the Clinton investigation was likely dragging his feet until after election. He also knew that if he did nothing given this new discovery and it turned up damning evidence against Clinton, Republicans would rake him over the coals for taking part in a conspiracy. So he did what any bureaucrat would do in that situation: He covered his you know what. He notified Congress of the new discovery, which let the cat out of the bag.

Buckle Up! One thing that is very clear to me: There will be more surprises before Election Day. Who knows what Julian Assange or hacker Kim Dotcom have up their sleeves. There are only 8 days left. That means the most scandalous opposition research dumps are likely still to come for both candidates. I have already seen trolls on my Facebook page floating truly sick accusations with zero evidence. People will say anything right now to win. It’s as if morals and ethics just permanently exited. Things are about to get nuts."

“Thoughts On Comey And The FBI”; A Comment

“Thoughts On Comey And The FBI”
by Karl Denninger

“Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains,
 however improbable, must be the truth.” 
- Sherlock Holmes

"Let's talk about Comey and the newest "revelation" in the Hillary saga. There was this gagging sound that had to have been from Huma Abedin when the announcement was made. She protested she "didn't know" how the emails got on her estranged pervert husband's laptop, but it wasn't a few emails, as the Clinton camp originally protested- it appears it was 650,000 emails.

This is the consequence, incidentally, of the combination of technical incompetence and arrogance in the world of today. It is why there are protocols for secure communications, there are rules and laws governing classified data, and the government is, except when a Clinton is involved, assiduous about enforcing them. It is why classified information is never allowed on the Internet. It is why classified information is never allowed on a computer that is not under both active monitoring and control by people who's job it is to verify that said machine has been secure, remains secure, and the data on it is secure, and said machine never leaves that secure network and connects to insecure one.

It is why the SD card slots and USB slots are locked out or physically disabled on such machines, so you can't stuff a thumb drive in there without it immediately setting off alarms at said monitoring locations and having The Hammer of God come down on your head. And it is why incompetent people when it comes to cyber security, combined with arrogance, usually turns into disaster.

I've had several friends who had their machines "cryptolockered." To an individual they claim they never ran anything off the Internet. Yes they did. That's how it happens. They got a prompt, they clicked "ok", and.... oops. Once done you can't undo it, and yes, Mildred, encryption is real and if done properly it's damn near impossible to actually break. For "ordinary people" the answer is that you reformat the device and start over.  Like it or not.

I'm going to take an educated guess here that the email program in question on that laptop is Outlook. At some point Huma signed into the Clinton email server using the Exchange protocol, which syncs emails, contacts and calendars. It's very convenient. It also makes a copy of everything on said server pertinent to your account on the local disk, synchronizes it whenever it is connected and never removes any of it absent explicit instruction to do so because it is far faster (never mind working when you're not connected to the Internet) to be able to do things like a keyword search if you do it on the local computer. It might have even been set to run all the time whenever the machine is on.

It also makes the security of said email and calendars utterly reliant on whatever security exists (or the lack thereof) on every single computer that connects to said resource, individually! If any such machine is insecure then everything on it is also insecure, including all of those emails. In short software like this takes what is a reasonable degree of security at a central site and destroys it because it makes the least secure end-node machine the "best" security you now have, and if those computers are personal and not under some form of active management the security of said system as a whole is now effectively zero.  In an environment where even a modest amount of security is required you must have all such computers under domain control with group policy settings, you must have full-disk encryption on (e.g. Bitlocker) with some rationally strong control of the keys for same and you must have set and push Exchange policies to prevent this sort of thing from happening. We know for a fact that none of those things were done because the public record shows that even rudimentary (SSL) security on the Clinton email server was intentionally shut off at one point and there is zero evidence that any sort of domain control or group policy, say much less exchange policy settings or encryption of data-at-rest, was implemented.

Why did all this happen? It happened because people who understand how to design, implement and operate a reasonably secure communication system are also intelligent enough to realize that if they aid and abet a potentially criminal enterprise they will go to prison! You therefore simply don't get the "best and brightest" or even the minimally competent people to do such a job, and those you do get will sit back and let one of the principals scream at them about security restrictions being "too much" and drop shields in response instead of replying with "That's insecure, I won't do it, and if you don't quit your hollering at me and shut your damned yap right now I quit!"

How dumb is this? If there needs to be security, very dumb indeed. It is dumb not because Huma is stupid but because she was ignorant, and as it turns out she has a pervert for a husband. There's a very good reason why, when you're looked at for a security clearance, those who you associate with most-closely are looked at too. In this case it's utterly outrageous that Huma had any sort of clearance beyond Weiner's 2011 resignation from Congress because his inability to keep his dick in his pants and lying about it were, at that point, a matter of public record. Sexual indiscretions that you lie about and try to keep secret are one of the big red flags when it comes to security clearances because they are very potent blackmail material.

Had Huma and Weiner divorced then and never lived or been together beyond that point there might be reason, post-2011, to let her have and retain a clearance. But that's not what happened. In point of fact Huma has been Clinton's "right hand woman" with access to both her and acting on her behalf during the entire time from 2009 to 2013 when she left as Secretary of State.

Huma apparently was granted a Top Secret clearance in 2009; how she managed to not have it immediately revoked in 2011 given that her husband was at that point known to be a security risk and she did not leave him is pretty damn odd. But then again, these are the Clintons, right? Never mind Huma's past factual history through the 1990s and early 2000s in association with muslim organizations that have a colorable connection to extremism. Of course we'll never know what the investigation into that in 2009 disclosed, how in-depth it was and whether "someone" (e.g. Obama) essentially poisoned what is supposed to be an impartial review.

Now let's talk about today. The Democrats are raising hell about Comey's "timing" and some are even arguing that he violated The Hatch Act. Let's get real- Comey promised, under oath, to provide any updates he got on the email situation before Congress. He was advised of this a day before he told Congress about it, which is hardly "sandbagging" or anything like that. Quite arguably he had to notify Congress or potentially be held susceptible to a perjury charge, never mind his already-tarnished reputation. What's even worse is that it appears the FBI person who did know about them earlier is potentially poisoned himself by Clinton-linked campaign donations to a family member!

Now here's the problem- by making the notification Comey basically shot himself politically. This, after multiple press reports that he already had a literal mutiny on his hands both within the FBI and at his home, with his own wife being furious that he had not referred the investigation for indictment previously.

Let's remember that Comey stood up on national television, described in public the presence of all of the elements of a violation of Federal law, and then said "no reasonable prosecutor would bring the case." He essentially told the nation that because it was a Clinton under investigation the presence of a smoking gun, hair, blood and fingerprints belonging to Hillary on the weapon and a dead body at her feet the "facts" would not lead any "reasonable prosecutor" to charge her!

Absolutely nobody who is literate and can read the actual Statute (which is public, I remind you) could possibly get through that news conference and have it pass the giggle test. Yet he did it, and had a mutiny on his hands- with good reason- for doing so.

I have said publicly, and I stand in front of those words, that utterly nobody should ever assist or respect the FBI or any other law enforcement agency so long as this sort of blatant, raw, political corruption remains in America. I'm not alone in that sentiment. The FBI is supposed to be the elite federal law enforcement agency of the United States and is supposed to investigate and refer any clear violation of federal laws for prosecution. When the director stands on national television, describes such a violation in detail, putting forward every element of said crime as printed in the Statute, and then dismisses same on national television he has destroyed said agency and its integrity. Period.

So why did Comey do it? I don't know. Maybe what was really there is so thermonuclear that he believed that if he did refer it the ultimate result would be the destruction of the nation. Maybe he's a political hack. Maybe he was threatened by Clinton; it's not like that hasn't happened before. What I do know is that by sending his letter last week Comey did an extraordinary thing and the only reason to do it is that failure to do it was more harmful, in his opinion, than doing it.

Let's remember here that what led to this was an investigation of Weiner allegedly sexting an underage girl.  The investigation began with NY authorities and then the FBI gained jurisdiction when it became clear that the other party was across state lines. This is an extremely serious charge, standing alone folks- interstate sexual offenses involving minors are serious business and people go to prison for a very, very long time if they are proved to have committed those acts. Those are good laws, not bad ones. By the point the FBI got jurisdiction and exclusive control of the evidence, however, it has to be assumed that NY State authorities, either in the NYPD or the NY State Police, had access to at least some of the material in question via forensic investigation, and perhaps to all of it.

That leads me to believe that what was uncovered in those emails and on that laptop was nuclear waste-grade incriminating evidence and not toward Weiner or Huma, either of whom could be charged individually without much of an impact on anything else. No, whatever was found had to relate to Hillary personally, it had to be of sufficient magnitude that James Comey came to the conclusion by manifest weight of the evidence that Hillary Clinton had committed acts so serious that she could not serve in the Office of President.

There are plenty of rumors flying around about exactly what was discovered. Those 650,000 emails may well include every one that Hillary and her staff tried to "bleach." If even one of them evidences felony criminal conduct then the game is up because we have now gone from the conduct itself to intentional destruction of evidence for the purpose of covering up a crime.

My best guess is that not only is that conduct documented in these emails but that one or more of the acts involve something so outrageous that James Comey decided that irrespective of his personal reputation, his job and maybe even his life he could not allow Hillary Clinton to be elected come next Tuesday, and he was willing to flush everything he is and has down the toilet to stop it from happening.

Before you call my belief on this regard crazy consider this- there was a judge who signed off on a warrant for that laptop on the weekend, which means they called him or her up, presented the evidence and he or she agreed it was serious enough to provide the FBI with the warrant they were requesting to search that device on an immediate basis- said judge believed that approval could not wait until normal business hours, nor was it a "close call" and thus required some time to think it over, despite the FBI having the device in their possession and thus there being no risk of it being tampered with or destroyed.

We'll see if I'm right, but in the meantime consider this: If he's right, and you ignore both his decision and that of a federal judge, in that you choose to vote for Hillary anyway, then you, not he, are personally responsible for whatever occurs as a consequence- including, quite possibly, the literal death in a nuclear World War III of not only America but also your children, grandchildren and yourself.”
A Comment: Know this, clearly and unequivocally: NO ONE else but Hillary Clinton is responsible for this. She alone is to blame. Everything that was done by her minions regarding her illegal home email servers was at her initiative and direction, obviously to hide multiple crimes, including treason, and in her infinite arrogance she really believed she'd get away with it. When, not if, they "flip" Huma Abedin into testifying truthfully about all she knows and has witnessed for many years, and the contents of her very appropriately named "Life Insurance" folder containing 10,000 emails, the Clintons worst nightmares will have become reality, and equal justice under the law may be returned to this country. We can only hope so... that is, if Huma doesn't suddenly decide to shoot herself TWICE in the back of the head, as happened to one woman "romantically" involved with Bill, another in the long list of "suicides" and "accidents" that follow the Clintons. Ask Vince Foster...

"Winners Who Won the Wind"

"Winners Who Won the Wind"
by Uncola

"Whoever brings ruin on their family will inherit only wind."
- Proverbs 11:29

"On the morning of Wednesday, November 3rd, 1976, I heard my father tell my mother Jimmy Carter won the election. I have not forgotten how my mother replied. In a resigned manner, and with a fatalistic sigh, she said: “Oh no”, to which my father replied with the same sense of concern, sadness and resignation in his voice: “Yep”. Looking at the pimply faced pre-teen staring back at me from the mirror that morning, I sensed something bad had just happened. Something big. And something that was soon to deliver real consequences of the sort that gave my two small town, main street, Republican parents pause and even a palatable sense of resignation and foreboding.

That was just one of my first political impressions that I was to experience. Although I was too young to fully understand Watergate, I did recall thinking that when Nixon said he was not a crook, it seemed to me he dideth protesteth a little too mucheth. Even then, my young impressionable mind was able to understand at least that much. It wasn’t until years later when I read G. Gordon Liddy’s 1980 book “Will” that I began to have a better understanding of the Fourth Estate’s solemn responsibility and power to hold the balances of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the United States government in check. Of course this is the main responsibility of a free press: to inform the public regarding the facts of the day.

But what happened? When did the press abnegate their responsibility to not only the citizens of the United States, but to the entire world as well? And, perhaps more importantly, why did we the people allow it to happen? Or did we?

I graduated high school in a Ronald Wilson Reagan world. Having read most of Ayn Rand’s books during my college years, I recall many conversations during and after my university years with those from all across the political spectrum; conservative, independent and liberal. The topics ranged from Star Wars and the arms race with the Soviet Union to the Iran Contra affair to Reagonomics to Trickle -down economics and more. I watched Oliver North testify on live television during the Iran Contra Affair. I saw Judge Robert Bork get “borked” and saw what the political left did with Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, which by the way I thought was very racist.

I watched George Bush the Elder go from an 89% approval rating in February of 1991 following the first Gulf war, to a 29% approval rating in July, 1992 just months before his election loss to Bill Clinton that fall. Then later, I watched the entire Slick Willie and Monica Lewinsky fiasco, which by the way, seemed very sexist to me.

So what is my point? Here it is: My parents, who were both so upset when Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, won the White House, who voted twice for Ronald Reagan and once for George H.W. Bush; by the year 1992, they came to view William Jefferson Clinton as a great American statesman. For me, this was a profound paradox.

Even after Clinton’s “Depends on what the definition of “is” is” and “I did not sleep with that woman”, the blue dress, the blatant dishonesty, hypocrisy, dishonor and downright treason was exposed in the media, my mother told me she thought Bill Clinton must have stolen Ken Star’s girlfriend in college and that’s why Ken was so bitter. How could this be? Was it really just all about the sex? No, Bubba was not impeached for sex. It was the perjury, stupid. Yet even this was whitewashed by a sycophantic press as they lulled the masses to sleep in subtle, near hypnotic, ways.

Looking back, I realize it was not because the mainstream media was burying the Clinton story. That was not the problem. Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh made sure of that. After all, everyone knew what was being reported, but now I have come to realize it was the manner by which the facts were being revealed that caused many to suspend disbelief. In other words, the media outlets were “massaging” the news.

There is an old saying that claims: There is a grain of truth in every joke. Another that says: “The best lies contain a little truth” and even another that takes it all a little further as follows: “In the same way that the best lies have an element of truth, evil is made more powerful when accompanied by grace.”

In other words the facts were being reported on the presidential indiscretions of William Clinton, but, at the same time, the details were being slanted in such a way so as to soften any harshness or judgement, and even to provide empathy for the soon to be impeached president. Empathy that was denied Clarence Thomas by the way. Do you see?

There was a Canadian professor, philosopher and public intellectual by the name of Herbert Marshall McLuhan whose insightful work really shed some light on the phenomena of the “media messaging the message”. In fact McLuhan coined the phrase “the medium is the message” which means that: “the form of a medium embeds itself in any message it would transmit or convey, creating a symbiotic relationship by which the medium influences how the message is perceived.”

Marshall McLuhan was a fascinating individual. In addition to identifying media massaging, he also coined the term “global village” and wrote a book in 1961 called: “The Gutenberg Galaxy: The Making of Typographic Man” where he describes four epochs of history: Oral tribe culture, manuscript culture, Gutenberg galaxy and the electronic age. Furthermore, in this book, McLuhan is given credit for predicting the World Wide Web decades before it came into being as we understand it today. In 1962, he actually coined the term “surfing” to refer to “rapid, irregular and multidirectional movement through a heterogeneous body of documents or knowledge” using computers. He said: “A computer as a research and communication instrument could enhance retrieval, obsolesce mass library organization, retrieve the individual’s encyclopedic function and flip into a private line to speedily tailored data of a saleable kind.”

I also find it interesting how McLuhan identified the Middle Ages as “characterized by the heavy emphasis on the formal study of logic” and claims the key development that led to the Renaissance was not the “rediscovery of ancient texts but a shift in emphasis from the formal study of logic to rhetoric and language.”

In his 1964 book, “Understanding Media”, McLuhan identified what he termed “hot” and “cool” media according to the level of involvement required by those engaging with them. Hot media would include radio, film and photography whereas cool media would include television and cartoons because these are viewed in a more detached state of mind.

In his bestselling 1967 book, “The Medium Is the Massage”, McLuhan utilizes the term “massage” to: “denote the effect each medium has on the human sensorium” and this book actually reinforced his earlier claims that all media are “extensions of our human senses, bodies and minds.” That’s how it’s done. Very subtly, like snake oil salesmen peddling their wares to a detached public. The media masters massage their messages in order to achieve the same effect as an opiate onto the collective mind of the masses. The messages are delivered as propaganda not to inform the public per se, but rather to suggest that which is meant to be reinforced or believed.

This is how globalist shills like David Brooks who first fell in love with the crease in Obama’s pants can compare America to her Olympic Athletes with no mention of dirty little details such as the ongoing collapse of the Affordable Health Care Act, the skyrocketing national debt or the disastrous foreign policy failures in the Middle East. It’s why magazines like Newsweek will claim right wing extremists are a larger threat to America than radical Islamic terrorism. And, it is why the Mainstream Media considers Donald Trump’s unproven misogyny to be more important than Hillary Clinton’s actual treason in a 23:1 ratio.

Obviously the Mainstream Media doesn’t feel the need to hide their bias anymore. According to a recent AP-GfK Poll of likely voters, 56% say the media is biased against Donald Trump. Even worse, according to Wikileaks, we now know a New York Times reporter, Mark Leibovich, has collaborated with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and even liberal news outlets are being forced to admit Democratic National Chair, Donna Brazile passed a CNN debate question onto Hillary Clinton in March of 2016, prior to her primary debate with then opponent Bernie Sanders.

Where is the public outrage? Particularly from the Bernie Sanders supporters? If the indignation is there, the media is choosing not to report on it.

In the years leading up to the 2016 election cycle, we have witnessed the steady decimation of the middle class, the increasing financial disparity between Wall Street and Main Street, open borders, foreign wars, escalating racial tensions and an out of control lawless government. From the very beginning of his campaign, Donald Trump has clearly stated in the media what a lot of Americans have been thinking and feeling. When the media pundits challenge him, he doesn’t back down. Instead, he doubles down and this has made Trump a hero to large swaths of voters nationwide.

For the most part, the majority of those supporting Trump believe him when he says: “Let’s Make America Great Again”.  It’s Nationalism pure and simple. There is a problem though. Nationalism is not in the best interest of the Deep State War Machine and the financial elite globalists. They want to tear down America so they can build their new world order and they won’t let a little piece of paper with “We the People” written on it, stop them.

These jackals are riding the fractional reserve banking behemoth also known as the Creature from Jekyll Island, and they have conscripted their corporate-owned media slaves into service as carnival barkers with bullhorns. The global financial elite currently own 95% of all of the mainstream media under the black umbrella of six multi-national corporations. The sole duty of these companies are to promote a globalist agenda via Technocratic Bubblevison and through the hypnotic power of suggestion, a wicked brew of half-truths, disregarded facts and, at times, complete misrepresentations.

To say the least, the mainstream media today has abdicated their responsibilities to the republic. Most everything now reported from Washington, the Associated Press or from any mainstream media outlets are at worst, outright lies; and at best, deliberately inaccurate. They incessantly make accusations regarding conspiracy theories and arrogantly judge the intellect of those who are awake. Yet they also simultaneously propagate Orwellian narratives like the US Embassy attack in Benghazi, Libya as being caused by a YouTube video. This is just one example.

According those who have abnegated the Fourth Estate today, we are to forget about the Fast and Furious, NSA, IRS and Benghazi scandals. Look away from the Clinton Foundation’s mysterious funding sources as well as its suspected financial misappropriations. We are to overlook the record billions of hollow point ammunition purchased in the last several years by the DHS, TSA, NSA, IRS, USPS and every other alphabet soup U.S. government agency in recent years.  And, we are to disregard reports of 2,700 armored vehicles recently acquired by the DHS as well as the militarization of police departments around our country.  Finally, we should ignore the fact that America’s national debt has doubled since 2008 and disregard how food stamp usage has increased seventy percent since 2008 as the bubblevision reports on the improving economy instead of Cloward-Piven.

In the media, confusion reigns. They like it that way and “keep ‘em guessing” seems to be their motto. One week coffee is bad for you. Another week coffee is good for you. One study funded by the Universal Coalition of Latin American Coffee Growers. The other is funded by the United Proponents of Green Tea Sellers. It’s all narratives and behind the lies there always seems to be an agenda. Why?

The moneymen and their minions are indeed sowing to the wind and they will soon reap the whirlwind. On Wednesday, November 9th, 2016; We the People of the United States of America will wake up with either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton as our President in a country now owned by China. Regardless of who wins, the whirlwind cometh.

To those who are encouraged regarding recent headlines of the FBI reopening the case again Hillary a few weeks before the election, keep in mind even this could be a play by the globalists to orchestrate a Trump win. There are some who claim the best play by the financial elite would be to allow the nationalist movements behind both Trump and Brexit to have their day in the sun. This would allow the establishment to simply collapse the system in any number of ways and thus blame the ensuing wreckage on nationalist naiveté and the foolish dreams of protectionism.

With a Hillary win it will be a fast track to war, financial armageddon and third world status. With a Trump win, the powerful moneymen can simply change the order to: financial armageddon, war and then, third world status. The names may change but the end results will be the same. Either way, the winners have won.

In John Steinbeck’s masterpiece, “The Grapes of Wrath”, a tale is told of migrant families in the Great Depression living in ramshackle camps known as “Hoovervilles”. However, the characters in the book are not portrayed as stupid. On the contrary, they know what happened to them. One exchange between the characters goes like this:

 “We’re sorry. It’s not us. It’s the monster. The bank isn’t like a man.” “Yes, but the bank is only made of men.” “No, you’re wrong there- quite wrong there. The bank is something else than men. It happens that every man in a bank hates what the bank does, and yet the bank does it. The bank is something more than men, I tell you. It’s the monster. Men made it, but they can’t control it. The bank– the monster, has to have profits all the time. It can’t wait. It’ll die. No, taxes go on. When the monster stops growing, it dies. It can’t stay one size.”

The protagonists in "The Grapes of Wrath", the Joad family, had difficulty living in their Hooterville and fared much better in their next camp which was run by the government. Ironically, during the next Great Depression that is almost here, life may again imitate art, except this time the Hootervilles will be called “Trump Towns” or Hillary “It Takes A Village” and the government camps will be run by FEMA.

In spite of the depressing subject matter, the beauty of the prose in "The Grapes of Wrath" is hauntingly eloquent. In its timeless message Steinbeck has captured what is about to again befall the United States citizenry once again with these words: “A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”

Yes, darkness comes from the east and an ill wind blows. There is a chill in the air that feels like judgement or even revenge.  The winners have won. Look at all they have won. The world in all of its entirety. The moocher classes have won a little more time to enjoy their free food, high definition televisions, low income housing and Obamaphones as they lip sync to their songs of hip hop and rap tunes in the ghettos. The high rollers have won consolidated global power, a lying media spinning statist narratives and ever growing bank accounts suckling imaginary green milk from the pigs in the pen of the Federal Reserve. They have won. Indeed, they have won, and at such a great bargain. All they had to trade in return were their nonexistent souls.”

Morning Musical Interlude: Leonard Cohen, “Hallelujah”

Leonard Cohen, “Hallelujah”

“Hallelujah”
“Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord.
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift,
The battle king composing Hallelujah…
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof.
You saw her bathing on the roof.
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you.
She tied you to a kitchen chair,
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair.
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah…
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain,
I don’t even know the name.
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light
In every word,
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah…
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much.
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch.
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you.
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah…
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah”

Stay strong, folks, no matter what...

“How Politics Poisoned the Economy”

“How Politics Poisoned the Economy”
by Bill Bonner

"What is going on in the markets? Well…nothing much. The US stock and bond markets have been as dull as a teetotaller’s funeral. No dancing. But no teary breakdowns, either. Investors seem to be awaiting the results of the upcoming elections as if they were waiting for him to die. They look at their watches. They check their cell phones. Pollsters tell us it is a ‘done deal’. But you never know; the old boy might surprise us. So, while we’re waiting, let us continue…rounding on our subject…trying to understand it…trying to see how the dots connect… Today, we step back to get a better view.

Deep State in control: We have been looking at the way the feds’ post-1971 fake money changed our whole society: our economy…our government…and our home life, too. Gone is the wealth-producing economy; now we have one that adds debt and subtracts real wealth. As we wrote about here, if you calculated ‘real’ (inflation-adjusted) GDP growth according to the methodology used during the Reagan era, you would see that the nation has been getting poorer since 1989.

Gone is the Old Republic, too, with its bleeding-heart liberals and foot-dragging, tightwad conservatives. Now we have only the Deep State Party- firmly in control of Congress, Wall Street, defense, health care, academia, and the mainstream press. Gone, too, are the home-cooked meals…the Father Knows Best households…the one-car families…the breadwinners…and the homemakers. Today, the problems that used to afflict the inner city- drug addiction, broken homes- have spread to the suburbs and rural areas.

Godawful mess: How did all this happen? There are only two ways to get what you want in a community: give and take. Or just take. Either you work, add value, negotiate, and trade for what you want; or you pull out a pistol. It’s either markets or politics, in other words. But politics is more than just running for office. It is not fixed and well-contained. Instead, it’s a dangerous and volatile fluid- a noxious enzyme that comes out of man’s most primitive urges and leaks into the economy and society.

People are all, to some degree, as capable of ‘politics’ just as they are capable of murder. Some are prone to it. And sometimes, a whole society gets taken over by it. First, the vapors make people giddy thinking about the possibilities. With the government…and its phony money…behind them, it’s hard to imagine a good thing they cannot do. Then they go a little mad…waving their pistols and pesos, proclaiming rights and rigmarole, and undertaking projects that ought to be left alone…all while mismanaging those few things they should do well. Finally, they end up with a godawful mess and give everyone a terrible headache.

Today, if you run a business in the medical field- insurance, ambulances, hospitals, drugs, private practice, medical devices and tests- you are in a partnership, of sorts, with the feds. Like it or not. They can tell you what you can do and what you can’t. They approve your drugs. In many cases, they determine how much you can charge. They can put you out of business…or make you rich. The entire industry has been politicized. If you want to enter the field, the first thing you should probably do is hire a lawyer and a lobbyist, not a doctor.

When a business falls under the spell of politics, the interests of the customer…or of the owner…are no longer paramount. Instead, satisfying the customer gives way to lobbying, bullying, pressuring, menacing, backstabbing, and seducing. And the business turns inward. Its primary mission now: to reward the insiders. In a free market, politics is self-limiting. Anything that takes your eyes off providing better products and better services puts you at a disadvantage to your competitors.

Politics will ruin your business. But when the feds gain control of the economy, politics runs wild. Then, as economic growth stalls, the relative payoff from politics increases. We don’t know which is the chicken and which is the egg. Does growth slow down first, leaving politics as the best way to get ahead? Or does politics slow down growth? We don’t know. Maybe both.

The triumph of politics: In the case of medical care, for example, the share of the US GDP that went into the healthcare industry increased from less than 7% in 1970 to over 17% today. How did that happen? Politics…

Since 1970, the number of doctors has barely doubled. But the number of ‘administrative employees’ has gone up 3,000%. The same is true in education. Teachers provide real value for the money; administrators play politics. Since 1970, the number of teachers has risen about 60%. The number of non-teaching administrators has gone up more than twice as much.

You can see the same trend in the military, too. The military is pure politics, in a sense. It is intended to use violence. And yet, even the military can be undermined and diverted from its real mission- by politics. The ideal fighting force is ‘lean and mean’. Fighting men need to be young and vigorous. So, as they aged, the Pentagon used to say it was ‘up or out’. Old soldiers were dead wood…unless they were destined for the top. And dead wood at the top was fatal. They slowed down decision-making. They wanted to ‘fight the last war’. They got in the way. There was only one officer for every 10 enlisted men when the US won the Second World War. Now there are twice as many officers…and four times as many generals…and we haven’t won a war since.

As President Reagan’s chief budget advisor David Stockman foresaw 30 years ago…we are seeing the final ‘triumph of politics.’ The elections are just a sideshow."
