A Man Who Explains the Tragedy (skip ad)


by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization


The New World Order’s agenda is intended to proceed to lock down unitary, unassailable control over the earth and all its dominions stage by stage as the (until now) hidden authority (deep money) at the pinnacle dictates.

The signal for the final takedown of the triad of the modern meme of human liberty, Britain, France, and the United States of America, has been decreed.

To wit: In France, a conspired attempt is made to solidify the wavering allegiance favoring the unified front against common declared “enemies” Syria, Iran, and ultimately Russia via the two fairly-transparent “terrorist attacks” on Paris, plus Marseilles. In Britain, the attempt to show in laughable fashion the weakness of opposition to the country’s capitulation to centralized tyranny backfired in the shockingly surprising Brexit vote. And now in America, the rottenness of the global system’s machinations to disintegrate popular reluctance to accept dictation have been laid bare for all to see.

But the élite is not to be denied. Through assassination or suborning (bribes including mob culture threats), through the deception of news theatre and spectacle, they will yet exact their will. And, as a final resort if necessary, if they see their window of opportunity truly closing, they will leap ahead sooner than planned to engineer the Armageddon-like nuclear conflict with Russia and China they are assured they can win, either through intimidation leading to capitulation or cataclysmic first strike following the customary false-flag event. Because their century-long sure planning does not admit setback or stand-down, even if only those in the bunkers can survive.

Can we counter their demonstrated berserker-ism? Lately, I’ve read of the fears of some that if a critical portion of the American public determine the government is not legitimate after the election, they will not pay taxes – perhaps by the tens of millions, too many to prosecute. If so, the obvious next step will be to organize and promote this reaction, until the stability of the already unsteady economy becomes impossible. And with a bill of particulars appended as the price of compliance, including (plausibly) the vested authority system coming clean, including about 9/11 and anything else the mass of insurgents want to know and an enforceable pledge to restore the populace as the true constituency, banning corporate lobbying altogether, etc.

The last laugh, however it eventuates, cannot be pleasing to the oligarchs.

U.S. About to Face Worst Crisis Ever - One Version

U.S. War Fetish Has Soured and Fragmented the World

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization


A story from under one of my unlikely other hats, as a bona fide sometime historian of Brazil, or brasilianista (see my Cruzeiro do Sul, A History of Brazil’s Half-Millennium, Vol. 1 and 2, available on In the early colonial days, under the rocky regime of the fledgling colony’s second governor-general, Duarte da Costa, the resident Portuguese Jesuits, South America’s very first cadre of clerics, petitioned the king in Lisbon to declare Brazil a separate jurisdiction from the Azores and send to the sprawling coast a bishop of its own. Hence, the strict King João III’s choice, the austere Dom Pedro Fernandes Sardinha, a classic drudge and martinet, was sent across, and immediately threatened the charmed progress the almost Renaissance-minded mere handful of Jesuits had made in pacifying the Indians, mainly the widespread Tupi tribal people. Receiving complaints, the king recalled the equally austere bishop for consultation.

But only a few hundred kilometers up the coast, the ship transporting him ran aground, and he and reportedly about a hundred other unlucky passengers and crew were quickly nabbed and eaten by the local Caete natives.

The point is that for the next century or more, revenge for the ghastly crime against Brazil’s first bishop was cited time after time after time after time as the pretext for successive genocidal slaughters of Brazilian Indians of whatever allegiance or band, mounting into quite likely millions and utter extermination from almost the entire eastern half of the continent-size country.

There is only one – but absolutely critical – difference between that more than extravagantly abused pretext for an egregious, heartless and endless genocidal hecatomb, and the one unstintingly exercised by the U.S. in the Middle East and broader environs today. And that is that that pretext in the one instance really (or, at least, apparently) did happen as portrayed by the “authorities”; whereas the way it was told in which 9/11 befell and its authors was expressly made up and drummed into the mentality of the American nation and world as a shamelessly false myth – a lie. A lie or myth that emphatically had to be true (although, small detail, it was not) and absolutely had to be defended as true history, although it, of course, was anything but.

In fact, the motivation for the wholly unjustified U.S. invasion of, of all places, the Middle East, a first-line trade partner for seventy years by now and continuing, may have been a desire to hijack or pirate valuable strategic materials, and more plausibly to control strategic space. But it had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. That was a lie of truly imperial proportions, which in turn necessitated the spinning and promulgation as truths of more wholesale state-sanctioned whoppers.

Outright lies. Namely, that the Middle East was full of and teeming with irrational, hate-filled demons hell-bent on the destruction of the entire west, not just the United States, to make way for an imagined (or hallucinated) sick, perverted faux-Islamic ascendancy and permanent reign of slavery over the whole infidel earth. The reason the U.S. couldn’t ever even try to negotiate with them was inferred to be their certain-to-be utterly scrambled and rabidly worse-than-worthless diabolical brains.

The vast add-on lie invoked here, of course, is that first al-Qaeda and then ISIL (or ISIS), two U.S. creations and puppet organizations, respectively, were and are actually the military and cerebral spearheads of a diabolic Middle Eastern militancy, even going so far as to deal through deadly offshoots and rogues to criminally attack targets in North America, Europe, and as far afield as Bangladesh and Bali. All of which, of course, were strategically orchestrated lies to prop up more basic lies in lieu of in-house actual perpetration, designed to and extend the effectiveness of the original lie, an unbelievably consequential narrative endangering and lethally attacking ultimately the whole world of Muslim human beings wherever they are and unrightfully occupying the business of the planet at least for decades. Whoever knows and cares must surely act to bring an end to the monstrous foundational lies spun literally out of nothing but fevered criminal imaginations – very much like fiat money, and likewise employed to control the world for an otherwise utterly creedless, psychotic, tiny global élite.

The true battle today is between these tip-top élite control selfist-globalists and the – to them – deplorable nationalists who want to divert control back to the discretion of the world’s masses and seven billion individuals as autonomous actors.

Which has, almost by default, become the real message of Donald Trump, a warrior candidate for U.S. president and self-acclaimed standard-bearer against globalism, who, though he keeps tripping over his own baggage, nevertheless also calls out the lies of its agents, truthfully declaring Hillary and Obama the “founders of ISIS” and rightly blaming the George W. Bush administration for 9/11. This, while not daring to go so far (as yet) with either well-based claim as to tighten the noose already around his neck.

Now, he calls out their ever-more-obvious (and precedented!) rigging of the whole electoral system, and he has them furious and at the same time quaking in their brazen boots. He may well lose, a victim of himself and that which he decries. But he has quite patriotically tipped off many millions of his countrymen and heartened the multitude of co-claimants to the power, formerly undisputed, that’s long been clamped down over them.

Unlike in the case of the ridiculously long-lasting pretext used for slaughtering up to millions of understandably hostile others in colonial Brazil, where the miniscule communities of settlers really were seemingly forever in a situation of permanent grave danger, the contrived onslaught carried on, on, and on by the U.S.-driven west and its lackeys, is based upon an elaborate, fragile and tantalizingly vulnerable superstructure of lies.

The Russians, the new declared enemy and fly in the corrupt American establishment’s ointment, with its spectacularly enraging constant bombardment of America’s wholly-controlled ISIS patsies, who our authorities naturally cannot acknowledge as such, are chipping away at the lie – running the solemnly warned risk of thermonuclear war, the only disincentive with a possibility to dissuade them. And if, as alleged, they are also hacking into and revealing publicly machinations of the U.S. establishment and its deceitfully-selected new leaders, they are, whether we like it or not, further serving the interests of the truth through Wikileaks.

Let truth be forever the banner for us all, and again may it prevail and wave free! “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Hell-bent President Obama Telegraphs President Putin

What Next?? Obama Executive Order Hints at Solar Flare Catastrophe

Russia Orders All Officials to Fly Home Relatives Abroad

Russia orders all officials to fly home any relatives living abroad, as tensions mount over the prospect of a global war | 13 Oct 2016 | Russia is ordering all of its officials to fly home any relatives living abroad amid heightened tensions over the prospect of global war, it has been claimed. Politicians and high-ranking figures are said to have received a warning from president Vladimir Putin to bring their loved-ones home to the 'Motherland', according to local media. It comes after Putin cancelled a planned visit to France amid a furious row over Moscow's [legal] role in the [US-engendered] Syrian conflict and just days after it emerged the Kremlin had moved nuclear-capable missiles nearer to the Polish border. Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has also warned that the world is at a 'dangerous point' due to rising tensions between Russia and the US.

Elite's Desperation to Anoint Hillary as President

Elite's Desperation to Anoint Hillary as President

Joachim Hagopian
Writer, investigative journalist

As we move into the final month prior to this year’s presidential election, the tempo of dramatic world events and developments that are breaking daily is mind boggling. Every single day we are seeing more outrageously desperate actions on the part of the globalists and their US government minions. Among the latest unfolding developments this week all fast tracking towards world war against Russia is NATO’s violation of international law deploying AWACS (Airborne Radar Warning and Control system) in Syria despite only Syria and Russia possessing the legal right to control the embattled country’s airspace. With both US and Turkish boots on the ground in northern Syria and US led coalition airstrikes regularly invading the sovereign nation’s airspace, recently targeting Syrian soldiers and plans to kill more, along with former acting CIA director Mike Morell’s recent call to begin killing Russian soldiers, the latest warpath rant comes from Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley who is now threatening Russia (as well as China and Iran) with nuclear war. Spoken just like a true grade school bully on a playground, he boasts, “We will beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before!” This is the kind of moronic leadership that rises to the top of the Empire food chain? I’m afraid so.

God help us when his most likely next commander-in-chief is the warmongering bulldog herself Hillary Clinton who’s not any more civilized nor humane. She’s already made it very clear that any real or perceived cyberspace attack on America coming from anywhere in the world constitutes an act of war and a military response against the cyber-perpetrators’ country. After already vowing to bomb Iran and with her constant accusations blaming Putin for everything gone wrong in her miserable life, including exposing her DNC corruption scandal responsible for rigging her presidential election, she is also all but promising to launch World War III against nuclear powered Russia. Incisive insider Paul Craig Roberts and even Putin have both said so. The neocon insanity that she represents is committed to perpetrating both suicidal and genocidal mass murder.

With a total of 7,100 US nuclear warheads as of August 2016 and an estimate reported two years ago of 2,150 operationally deployed nukes, America could destroy itself four times over while Russia’s 7,300 nuclear weapons would likely carry the same tremendous overkill power. When we’re all dead, it hardly matters who has what? As the Benghazi ringleader who gave the stand down order that sealed the fate of four murdered Americans would say, “What difference does it make?” The sheer madness in control of our planet right now actually believes the elite can simply hunker down in their underground luxury bunkers, take a long nuclear winter’s nap and a few years later emerge like Rip Van Winkle unscathed in their grandiose fairy tale. Talk about madness!

Meanwhile, a whopping 40 million Russian citizens taking US threats very seriously are currently undergoing a WWIII practice drill in preparation for the real thing that the US megalomaniacs are bent on igniting. But unlike the US, Moscow is also taking care that at least 12 million of its citizens in their capital will also safely submerge into a subterranean world when the SHTF.

Demonized Syrian President Bashar al-Assad succinctly summed up US foreign policy accurately this way:

Today the United States is waging wars with the only goal to cement its project of total control by launching attack on everyone who opposes its dominance.

Assad is reminding the world that the US Empire refuses to accept a balance of power sharing hegemonic interests with the two most powerful other nations on earth Russia and China. And invariably just when the curtain is lifted exposing the US crime cabal government that’s created and to this day still supporting al Qaeda and ISIS terrorism around the world, the wag the dog propaganda frenzy goes into overdrive to falsely vilify Putin and Assad for actually being the two biggest fighters of terrorism on the planet. But then peace and harmony is not what the New World Order agenda’s about. The globalist puppet masters pulling Washington’s strings are simply setting the stage to destroy the West in an orchestrated West versus East showdown at the doomsday corral in order to obfuscate the collapse of their house of cards, theft-based, debt-based economy that will be sure to usher in their long plotted one world government tyranny.
>br/> This week’s tempo of news breaking events exposing Hillary and the US government’s aggressive hubris is only accelerating the closer the November election looms. The globalists are well aware that a growing segment amongst the global masses are on to them and their evil ways. So the elite is growing increasingly desperate trying to plug all the holes of endless false narratives exposing the rampantly corrosive corruption and in-our-face criminality of the entire Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama-Clinton dynasty. Thus, the dangerous treachery of warmongering rhetoric and reckless threats are ratcheting up daily.

But one key development seems to have barely gotten noticed this week. On October 1st Obama took us one enormous step closer to stripping away our free speech and access to accurate news sources via the internet as virtually the only truth disseminator left on the planet that’s not already oligarch owned and controlled by the six mega-media corporations. As of this last weekend, Obama surrendered US control over important functions of the internet to the United Nations. Tech experts warn that placing internet domain responsibility into the hands of a centralized global bureaucracy like the UN may well lead to widespread censorship and control as just another warning sign plunging humanity towards New World Order totalitarianism.

Of course in recent years the CIA-NSA-Homeland Security apparatchik has co-opted internet giants like Facebook and Google which also controls YouTube, enlisting them as deep state spies invading citizens’ privacy and increasingly censoring the internet according to what deep state dictates as acceptable for consumption by a dumbed down robotic population. Just as mainstream media is now overwhelmingly viewed by the vast majority of Americans as pure propaganda not to be trusted, by design so will the same oppressive fate soon befall the internet. Again, history keeps repeating itself as truth becomes the enemy in every totalitarian state. The elite plans to shut down any voice of dissent and the truth, thus gaining absolute control over the servile misinformed population. The rise and fall of the US Empire is morphing rapidly into a globalized crime cabal that only a handful of ruling psychopaths could love.

The recently rigged spectacle of a debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was just more over-the-top evidence that the elite controls every aspect of this year’s presidential election. It’s been reported that Hillary received the debate questions a week in advance when an NBC intern was spotted dressed in a Fed Ex uniform delivering a package directly into the hands of her campaign manager. And it didn’t take a four-time world poker champ to point out that Hillary was obviously in cahoots sending hand signals to MSM moderator Lester Holt every time she wanted to take another cheap shot at the Donald. Her bag of dirty tricks is unending as it’s also gone public that she is paying big bucks for dirty laundry secrets about her opponent. And since Trump’s recent tax return is unavailable due to a pending audit, the Clinton rag the New York Times feebly released a 1995 tax return that only found Trump using the same legal tax code loopholes that every other wealthy American reporting losses exploits in the corrupt US tax law system. But that would-be smoking gun quickly fizzled out.

Less than two months ago on national television Clinton campaign strategist Bob Beckel called for a drone assassination strike on Julian Assange to “illegally shoot the son of a bitch” due to ongoing WikiLeaks’ disclosures incriminating Hillary for her “lost” emails and DNC documents chronicling how she stole the primaries away from Bernie Sanders to cheat her way to the nomination. Earlier this week because Assange was again threatened with his life, at the last minute he called off his hyped up bombshell disappointing millions who had stayed up late in America. Julian did promise to release within a few days such damaging information on war, arms, oil, Google, the election and mass surveillance that many hope will finally put Hillary behind bars where she belongs once and for all.

Speaking of hard time, the felony blackmail her hubby Bill brazenly committed just prior to the FBI-Justice Department issuing Hillary’s get-out-of-jail card also just surfaced. Journalist-author Edward Klein in his recent book Guilty as Sin wrote that he received some powerfully damaging information from one of Bill Clinton’s closest legal advisors. The anonymous source said that Bill shared with his advisor, “I want to bushwhack Loretta [Lynch],” the sitting US Attorney General. So the unindicted rapist stalked and laid in waiting to pounce on Lynch at the Phoenix airport in July prior to boarding her plane. Bill’s ambush was to blackmail the AG. Afterwards the former president bragged to advisors how he had the Attorney General sweating and shaking, so thoroughly intimidated that she promised not to charge Hillary with any crimes for being guilty of violating national security. On a related side note to Bill’s alleged sex crimes, Hillary’s been labeled his enabler pretending to stand for women’s rights on the one hand while on the other hypocritically intimidating to viciously discredit her husband’s past accusers.

That’s just the way business in Washington DC is done, behaving like criminal thug killers not unlike organized crime. The Clintons have been notoriously aggressive gathering and using the dirt on others in order to get what they want, from Arkansas to the White House. And when others in their path ever resist, a murder trail of dozens of close associates have suspiciously shown up dead, from longtime Clinton family friend-White House Counsel Vince Foster to Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. Three more victims with ties to both the DNC and Clinton this summer are just the latest fatalities. Blackmail and murder pretty much explain Hillary and her husband’s modus operandi that appears immune from any and all accountability. A two-tiered justice system has been operating in the US for a long time where the top 1% continue getting away with murder while the rest of us without constitutional rights get screwed by a grossly unjust, violent police state system.

Assange and WikiLeaks may have deferred their bombshell to Romanian hacker aka Guccifer 2.0 who released over 800 megabytes amounting to 42 pages showing how millions in taxpayer TARP bailout dollars were syphoned off and allegedly laundered illegally through the Clinton Foundation. The hacked documents list a database of “pay-to-play” donors and bribes to selected Congress members as well as on to major banks and large financial institutions. Other documents show kickbacks from banks to Congress members. Tax dollars allocated to boost the recession-racked US economy ultimately padded the 1%’s deep pockets, compliments of Hillary and Bill’s criminal laundering scheme. If confirmed as legitimate Foundation documents and not the already hacked DNC records released earlier this year, this latest data dump is but one more example demonstrating Bill and Hillary’s “pay-for-play” criminal enterprise. Moreover, additional emails released this week confirm how her State Department and her Clinton Foundation worked hand in glove together to illegally drum up revenue and influence with clear evidence of conflict of interest.

Despite this fact, prior to Hillary even being nominated by Obama to become his Secretary of State, she signed an ethics agreement that was a Memorandum of Understanding as a precondition to taking the job that she would not violate conflict of interest laws by allowing foreign interests undue influence. As soon as she accepted her powerful position, she began violating her White House agreement and compromising national security. In fact over half the private interests (85 out of 154) who met Hillary at her State Department made sizeable donations often into the millions totaling $156 million.

Pathological liar Hillary committed perjury before the Benghazi Congressional hearings and lied hundreds of other times, chief among them claiming she had turned over all her emails to the FBI that later found 17,448 more that she had failed to submit. In early March this year Hillary received a subpoena from the FBI for her emails. So what did she do? Three weeks later she ended up caught deleting 33,000 more emails attempting to destroy critical evidence, yet another crime. Through the watchdog group Judicial Watch, even more emails were procured from the State Department beyond the 55,000 emails she allegedly turned over to the FBI.

Repeatedly Clinton’s unsecured private server account had been used to criminally sell off America and US arms to the highest foreign bidders from places like Saudi Arabia (gave $10 million to Foundation) and Israel on top of her willful destruction of incriminating evidence she tried hiding from authorities to cover up her countless crimes. Throughout her entire 4-year stint as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton knowingly breached national security allowing foreign nationals and hackers easy access to this nation’s top secret classified information. Anyone else but her would be doing decades inside federal prison.

Because of Hillary’s crimes and FBI Director James Comey’s whitewashed investigation, both the Justice Department and the FBI have been politically and irreparably compromised, causing the public to completely lose confidence in both government and law enforcement. Comey used his red herring smokescreen of “intent” to bogusly justify not pressing charges. Yet violating national security clearly falls under US Code 793 and has nothing to do with Clinton’s intentions but everything to do with her passing at least 22 top secret emails through her unsecured private server. Clearly she broke a federal law that’s among the most serious of all felonies. Yet despite her consistent lying, destruction of evidence and obstruction of justice, she was never even required to take a single polygraph test. Comey’s shoddy farce of a non-investigation indicates that he’d made the political decision from the get-go to not prosecute. At no time did he refer the case to a grand jury. Instead he granted immunity to key witnesses and totally overlooked Hillary’s destruction of evidence.

Because the DC crime cabal works together in the oligarchic interest of the ruling elite, Congress will never dare impeach Hillary Clinton, even though overwhelming evidence of her criminality and immorality make her unfit for president. And as far as Director Comey’s criminal part, the Senate has more than enough grounds to file a resolution of no confidence in his capacity to oversee the FBI. Many FBI personnel working under Comey are now calling him a “traitor” too.

Audited financial records show that both Bill and Hillary Clinton amassed a fortune by diverting millions through their Clinton Foundation into their own private bank accounts. While Hillary headed the State Department, her partner-in-crime husband made a cool $48 million in speaking fees 215 times that she lent her official stamp of approval. Their combined speaking engagements from 2001 to her presidential bid earned them $153 million. The same Persian Gulf monarchies that overtly support and finance ISIS terrorists that Hillary and Obama created gave the Clintons over $100 million. This unprecedented scale of obscene corruption enabled foreign interests undue influence and control over both the Clintons and US foreign policy as their pay-for-play tax-exempt Foundation profited $2 billion. Since 1997 over $100 billion has been collected by their international criminal charity foundation. The Clinton scheme monetized the White House, using illicit practices no different from the drug cartels to set up multiple shell entities for no other reason but for money laundering purposes.

The Clinton’s post-earthquake starting in 2010 with photo-ops and promises became a disgraceful example among many where 95 cents on each dollar was absconded by the Clintons while the remaining 5 cents trickled down to a few quake victims. An artificially inflated price tag into the hundreds of millions was designated for building a new hospital that was never built. $2 million for housing never got off the ground. A miniscule fraction of what they took in was actually spent on victims in the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation. The Clintons greedily self-enriched through their charity fraud off the backs of the destitute, hungry and homeless. Their organization was supposed to create 16,000 jobs but instead created a sweat shop on the north side of the island where the least damage occurred. $13 billion was raised in all. A mining gold contract was secured for Hillary’s brother while her chief of staff Cheryl Curtis made 30 trips to Haiti ostensibly to set up an industrial park and posh hotels that made a killing for the Clintons. To this day Haiti’s earthquake victims have yet to receive their promised assistance from the Clintons.

Getting richer off selling enriched uranium to the so called enemy Putin that’s the essential ingredient for making nuclear weapons allowed Russia to buy up 20% of America’s uranium deposits as yet another flagrant act of treason. And now hypocrite Hillary is resorting to the same kind of cold war witch hunt that Joe McCarthy would be proud of, accusing Donald Trump, Roger Stone and other critics of being un-American, secretly colluding with Russia, implying that they are violating national security, the very same high crime she willfully and recklessly perpetrated herself as the traitor she is. Both the Clintons’ entire public careers have been mired in scandal, controversy, deception, cutthroat criminality and thuggery.

Finally, because on top of everything else Hillary is gravely ill suffering from a host of severe medical and mental health issues, it’s all the more reason to ensure that she does not get elected. WikiLeaks determined that in 2011 Clinton asked her State Department staff to research a commonly prescribed drug for treating Parkinson’s disease. Her poor balance, multiple episodes of falling down, coughing fits, and what appear to be seizures have created a firestorm of speculation.

Do Americans really want to place their lives in the hands of a known psychopathic liar and criminal with such severe medical impairments who possesses the capability to push the nuke button that would end the world? Another heinous world war, extreme tyranny and corruption bringing more human carnage, suffering and despair on a scale that humanity’s never witnessed before, if the diabolical Hillary Rodham Clinton ends up the next US president, that is exactly what’s in store for us. The globalists realize their window is fast closing before the now waking masses will be turning against them to actively oppose their finalized one world government disorder and brutality. Thus, they’re frantic to place their latest demonic puppet into power in order to deliver their apocalyptic destruction to our planet earth.

Washington Post - Hacked Content of Clinton Wall Street Speeches

Hacked emails appear to reveal excerpts of speech transcripts Clinton refused to releasebr/>
The Washington Post

26 mins ago

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.© Jack Taylor/AFP/Getty Images WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Hillary Clinton’s paid closed-door speeches to Wall Street banks apparently included her dreams of “open trade and open borders” and a suggestion that bankers are best positioned to know how the industry should be regulated, according to hacked emails made public Friday by WikiLeaks.

The comments are drawn from an email describing speech transcripts that Clinton has refused to release despite months of intense criticism.

The email, apparently hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, shows a staffer in the early stages of Clinton’s primary campaign against Sen. Bernie Sanders this year flagging speech excerpts that could be politically problematic.

Sanders had questioned what Clinton had said to the financial institutions that paid her hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees between the end of her tenure as secretary of state and the start of her run for the White House.

The excerpts highlighted by the aide included comments on two front-burner election issues — Wall Street regulation and trade — on which Clinton has been on the defensive at times. Both Sanders and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump have attacked Clinton for her past support of global free-trade deals, tapping into a growing sentiment among many voters that such agreements have hurt their communities.

Clinton, for instance, described her free-trade ambitions during a 2013 appearance before an Italian banking group. Records show the group, Itaú BBA USA Securities, paid her $225,000.

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders,” she said, according to an email first reported by BuzzFeed. The Clinton campaign on Friday night refused to authenticate the hacked emails, instead attacking WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has been openly critical of Clinton. The site released hacked Democratic National Committee emails over the summer that U.S. intelligence officials on Friday accused Russia of stealing.

“We are not going to confirm the authenticity of stolen documents released by Julian Assange, who has made no secret of his desire to damage Hillary Clinton,” Clinton spokesman Glen Caplin said. He referred to doctored emails that have appeared on websites linked to Russian intelligence recently as proof that “documents can be faked as part of a sophisticated Russian misinformation campaign,” although Caplin did not say that the emails released Friday concerning Clinton’s speeches had been faked.

The FBI did not immediately say if the Russians were behind the alleged hack.

The new revelations about Clinton’s paid appearances before big banks, coming two days before her next debate faceoff against Trump on Sunday, threaten to revive an issue that has dogged the Democratic candidate for months and hampered her ability to energize some Sanders backers and other liberals she needs to mobilize on Election Day.

Sanders aggressively attacked Clinton during their primary battle for the speaking fees she got from major banks, particularly the $675,000 she was paid by Goldman Sachs for three appearances, bolstering his populist challenge and portraying her as cozy with Wall Street. He repeatedly challenged her to release the speech transcripts.

Clinton, who was paid more than $20 million for speeches between 2013 and 2015, had said she would “look into” releasing the transcripts — but she never has indicated any plans to do so. While Clinton has attacked Trump for refusing to release his tax returns, some critics have pointed to the speeches by Clinton as evidence that she, too, has not been fully transparent with voters.

One possible vulnerability identified in the emails was a 2014 speech to Deutsche Bank in which she gave remarks that a Clinton staffer characterized as suggesting, “Wall Street Insiders are what is needed to fix Wall Street.”

“How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works?” the email indicates that Clinton said in the speech, speaking of Wall Street regulation. “And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.” Records show Clinton was paid $260,000 to address Deutsche Bank in 2014. In another speech to Goldman Sachs in Arizona in 2013, Clinton fretted that “part of the problem with the political situation, too, is that there is such a bias against people who have led successful and/or complicated lives.” She was paid $225,000 for the Arizona speech, records show.

The campaign staffer cited other worrisome passages that touted Clinton’s relationship to Wall Street, including an acknowledgment that she needed Wall Street’s financial support.

The emails appear to have been hacked from Podesta’s Gmail account and appear to span almost a decade. According to a WikiLeaks tweet, the release represented the first 2,050 documents of 50,000 it has hacked from Podesta. Podesta, 67, is a longtime aide to Clinton and a powerhouse in Democratic politics. A former White House chief of staff for Bill Clinton, Podesta was a founder of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress and as campaign chairman has been at the center of every major decision as Clinton has dealt with political struggles over her use of a private email server and fundraising by the Clinton Foundation.

The hacked emails appear to offer insights into the campaign’s handling of some of those controversies.

In one October 2015 exchange, staffers appear to discuss ways to capitalize on Sanders’s comment during a Democratic debate that people were sick of hearing about Clinton’s “damn emails.” Adviser Joel Benenson appears to have suggested that Clinton could make a joke about her testimony before a Republican-led committee investigating the attacks in Benghazi, Libya. “I was kind of expecting around hour #8 Bernie Sanders would burst in and shout--’enough about your damn emails Hillary!!’ ” But Podesta nixed the idea. “I defer if others think this buys us good will with Sanders people, but email jokes in Iowa usually end up badly and don’t we want to move on?” he wrote back.

The emails include a series of internal conversations in May 2015 about how to respond to a book by conservative author Peter Schweizer called “Clinton Cash,” which tracked donations to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees paid to former president Bill Clinton while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. In one email, Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri told other Clinton staffers that Clinton had raised the topic of the book with her. “It was a difficult conversation,” Palmieri wrote. “My impression is she wants a much stronger response. Which means engaging more on details that we have to date not found in our interest to do so.”

Friday’s WikiLeaks release underscored a rapidly escalating concern among U.S. intelligence officials — and the Clinton campaign — about information hacked by foreign intelligence operations.

The Podesta emails surfaced on the day that the U.S. intelligence community officially accused the Russian government of attempting to interfere in U.S. elections by deliberately leaking the DNC files and other hacked emails.

Intelligence officials have identified WikiLeaks and other sites as among those receiving or publishing information from Russian intelligence, a claim that Assange has dismissed in the past.

Clinton campaign officials have had their hands full responding to questions about hacked emails.

In the previous 24 hours, the website had released a batch of communications from the Gmail account of a ­lower-level and longtime Clinton aide Capricia Marshall. She served as the State Department’s chief of protocol under Clinton. Intelligence officials think her email account may have been hacked by Russians as well.

Activist Post - 6 Major Media Conspiracies Happening Now

Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization


One of my favorite grad-school professors was fond of saying “What the world needs is not more answers, but more questions.” With our community’s focus on suspects for the crimes of 9/11 now pivoting back toward blaming the Mossad and Israel as the chief perpetrators, or co-perpetrators perhaps (a tempting allegation, though not yet precisely proven), maybe the time is ripe for consideration of an at least alternative hypothesis.

An objection often raised that mitigates the “Israel did it” hypothesis is that IF the Mossad (Israel’s CIA-equivalent) did the operation, they must at very least have had informed close cooperation with the higher reaches of the U.S. government, for ordering stand-downs, as well as for launching and coordinating the dozen or more aerial drills that confused U.S. air defenses and clogged pertinent radar that day.

But even if Israelis, the Mossad, and their gaggle of American Jewish collaborators saw to the placement of explosives and the recruitment and activation of the Muslim Middle Eastern patsies involved in the spectacle, and although there is plausible photographic evidence of what sure looks like Israeli art students posing , for whatever reason, within the bowels of the Twin Towers next to stacks of boxes labeled to contain detonation triggers, one key question remains: “Why would the U.S. government have agreed to let them do such a trauma inducing operation?

Or, more broadly, why does the U.S. government seem always to cow-tow and act at the bequest and according to the wishes of Israel? In the language of the current lament, why always let the tail (tiny Israel) wag the giant dog (U.S.) – that is, of course, with the single apparent exception of Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel’s violent objection in vain to the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal.? With that exception, then, why is little Israel always calling the shots for the mighty U.S.?

Well, my own open hypothesis – without proof at this time, although it does resolve some of the conundrums – it that they’re not, but it only looks that way. What may be actually happening is that 1) the U.S. government (as all western governments, including Israel’s) are nowadays little more than franchises or shells controlled by the international banking and financial syndicate (New World Order élite). And 2) Just as Muslim terrorist patsies were employed to make it look like they did it (shades of later “crisis actors” on all levels) on 9/11, the Israelis were employed and assigned to deflect the heat off the true perpetrators, the supreme international NWO command and control system and the U.S. operation team.

And in the case of 9/11, as with subsequent big picture U.S. foreign and military operations, what is called for and carried out is pretty close to exactly what the policy would have been if Israel didn’t even exist. But working Israel into the role of seeming to, in effect, order the U.S. around and having the U.S. always praise and follow the dictates of Israel, its Zionists, and the Mossad gives the U.S. (and ultimately the NWO/central bank underwriters) a foil to avoid absorbing full blame for awful things that would have been done anyway – in the same manner as al-Qaeda and ISIS have been employed as a foil for the most inexcusable and dastardly actions required. The hard-to-substantiate claim repeated often by the U.S. that “Israel is our closest ally”, when they have never provided actual troops for U.S. military operations, so far as is known, is just part of the opinion-making ruse.

One additional add-on for today: I do now think the threat of imminent thermonuclear war with Russia, as absolutely insane as that would be, is distinctly possible. Because the ultimate supremacy of the one-world financial syndicate requires the pacification and full inclusion as puppets, or franchisees if you will, of both Russia and China, and the NWO moguls seem confident that they and their interests can survive what may be needed to bring that about – regardless how many hundreds of millions of ordinary people’s lives may be ended or ruined in the process. Stand up and demand a stand down.

Seeking Justice - Iraqis to Sue U.S.

This Is What They Were Afraid Of — Iraqis Use “Sue the Saudis” 9/11 Bill To Sue US For 2003 Invasion

iraqBy Matt Agorist

The warmongers in the US government have just had their fears realized as Iraq plans to use the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), aka Sue the Saudis Bill, to demand compensation for the US invasion of Iraq.

Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives, following the lead of the Senate, passed a bill allowing Americans to sue Saudi Arabia over 9/11. When the bill made it to the President’s desk, however, Obama quickly showed his loyalty to Saudi Arabia and vetoed it. However, that was only the beginning of the rollercoaster.

Days after his despicable veto, the Senate stepped up and overwhelmingly voted to override it.

The reason the for the veto was obvious as this bill would, in theory, open up a venue and allow lawsuits against the U.S. for alleged sponsorship of terrorist activities in their own countries – a Pandora’s Box that President Obama, and the CIA most certainly do not want to open with the world watching. However, it appears, for now, that Pandora’s Box is open.

. The lobbyist group Arab Project in Iraq now sees their opportunity to ask for compensation from the United States over violations by US forces following the invasion of Iraq that saw the toppling of late President Saddam Hussein in 2003, according to a report from Al-Arabiya News.

The group is pushing for “a full-fledged investigation over the killing of civilians targets, loss of properties and individuals who suffered torture and other mistreatment on the hand of US forces.”

While many states have criticized JASTA for its potential of eroding the principle of sovereign immunity and changing international law, this immunity has been used by Saudi Arabia, who was found to have aided and abetted the 9/11 hijackers, to shield themselves from any and all accountability.

Arab Project in Iraq is the first to take advantage of this bill against the US, but the implications for further accountability for unjust wars are only beginning to be realized.

Former Sen. Larry Pressler, defendant in a U.S. court on charges of terrorism in Vietnam, fear mongered last week that this bill could make him vulnerable for the illegal and murderous Vietnam war. Pressler explained his concern in an op-ed at The Hill.

As a Vietnam combat veteran, I could almost certainly be sued by the Vietnamese government or by a Vietnamese citizen. The Gulf War, Iraq War and Afghanistan War veterans are more protected by constitutional congressional actions, but we Vietnam veterans will be raw targets if Americans can sue Saudi Arabia.

Instead of questioning the nature of illegal wars themselves, this former senator, and many like him, want to hide behind the protection of the very state who waged that war.

If you kill innocent people — you deserve no immunity.

This notion has already been publicly debated after World War II. In 1945 and 1946, during the Nuremberg Trials, the issue of superior orders arose. Before the end of World War II, the Allies suspected such a defense might be employed and issued the London Charter of the International Military Tribunal (IMT), which explicitly stated that following an unlawful order is not a valid defense against charges of war crimes.

Again, if you killed innocent people for the state — you deserve no immunity.

While JASTA will allow families of victims of 9/11 to overcome the current restrictions barring them from suing foreign governments, the new section of the bill, added at the last minute, would essentially allow the heads of the Justice and State departments to stay any lawsuits indefinitely. The inserted provisions allow for organizational heads to simply “inform the judge hearing the case that the US government has engaged with Riyadh in diplomatic talks to resolve the issue.” Additionally, the attorney general can petition the court for an extension of the stay for “additional 180-day periods,” effectively delaying lawsuits against the Saudis indefinitely.

In spite of this loophole, however, the first suit against Saudi Arabia was filed Friday in a Washington D.C. court on behalf of Stephanie Ross DeSimone, her 14-year-old daughter, Alexandra, and her husband’s estate. The suit alleges that “At all material times, Saudi Arabia, through its officials, officers, agents and employees, provided material support and resources to Osama bin Laden (“bin Laden”) and Al Qaeda.”

The complaint, which was filed on 30 September and is available to view online states that “Al Qaeda’s ability to conduct large-scale terrorist attacks was the direct result of the support Al Qaeda received from its material sponsors and supporters, including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

As the lawsuits mount, those responsible for the violent atrocities across the globe are running scared. In fact, the Saudis have been on the defensive. A bombshell report by the New York Times in April revealed that Saudi Arabia, the third largest holder of U.S. Treasury bills in the world behind China and Japan, has warned the Obama administration and Congress that they will begin liquidating their U.S. assets if Congress passes a bill allowing for the Saudi government to be held responsible for their role in the terror attacks of 9/11.

While the Saudis have yet to come true on their blackmailing threat, there is still plenty of time for them to do so.

As the warmongering hypocrites fear monger about being held accountable, the families of victims are finally seeing a semblance of justice that decades of war, torture, rights violations, and the creation of the world’s largest police state never gave them.

Clinton Wanted to Drone Wikileaks

Pentagon Caught Commissioning Fake Terrorist Films

A Lamentable Result of Public Defaming of 911 Truth

In the Age of Weaponized Media and False Flag Terrorism, You Should Care About

Avery v. Baddour, & Hearst Communications, Inc., owner of the Houston Chronicle

History of Court Activity:

Avery sued News Reporter, Dylan Baddour, and Hearst Communications, Inc., owner of the Houston Chronicle for libel. They wrote and published a web article and a front page news article using words, other articles and photographs juxtaposed in such a way that tended to injure Avery's reputation exposing him to public expressions of hatred, contempt and ridicule.

The articles falsely said that Avery was a member of the Republic of Texas, and was a secessionist, and implied that Avery was also a fascist, neo-Nazi and part of the growing right-wing terror threat in America that is now worse than Muslim terrorism. The web article produced 23 unsolicited comments in the blog under the web article in which nine expressed hatred, ridicule and contempt. None of the comments were complimentary.

The Defendants filed an "anti-SLAPP" Motion to Dismiss using the "Texas Citizen Participation Act" (Texas Civil Practice & Remedy Code Chapter 27). SLAPP is an acronym for "Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation."

After a very brief hearing on the motion in trial court (15 minutes), the judge took the case under "advisement" but quickly (over the weekend) returned a ruling dismissing the lawsuit and denying the Defendant's request for mandatory attorney fees, costs, expenses, and sanctions that would deter Avery from ever filing a similar lawsuit. The immediate question is why would a judge who studied libel and the anti-SLAPP dismissal statute enough to grant dismissal, deny mandatory attorney fees, costs, expenses and sanctions? Avery is sure it is because the judge did not study the case at all and did not know that the same were mandatory under the TCPA or anti-SLAPP statute.

Avery filed an appeal to the Texas Fourth Court of Appeals and Defendants also filed an appeal of the denial of their mandatory fees, etc., and for sanctions. The Fourth Court of Appeals issued a 13 page Memorandum Opinion affirming the trial court's dismissal of Avery's suit but reversing and remanding the trial court's denial of mandatory attorney fees, costs, expenses and sanctions.

On 9/26/16 Avery filed a Petition for Review in the Supreme Court of Texas requesting that he and the Respondents be asked to file a Brief on the Merits for consideration of four issues he brought, and that the Supreme Court of Texas Reverse the rulings of the Fourth Court of Appeals and remand the case for a trial on the merits.

Avery's Four Issues:

1. The "hypothetical average reasonable reader" doctrine of determining a publication's capability to defame found "as a matter of law" by a judge alone cannot replace written evidence of the expression of public ridicule, contempt and hatred, the statutory definition of defamation, as it did in the Avery case.

2. The "Substantial Truth" doctrine cannot alter the nature of things but only the minor degree of something. A publication that a person stole $200 when they only stole $150 is "substantially true" showing that the person was a petty thief. But it cannot make someone a member who was not a member, nor can it make a secessionists from one opposed to secession, as was done in the Avery case.

3. The common law or case law Definition of defamation should be brought into conformity with the statutory definition of defamation to prevent the TCPA from being a trap for those innocent of filing a SLAPP suit, as was the situation in the Avery case. Presently, no one can know if a judge will find that an article that defamed them was capable of doing so, which is an absurdity on its face. Avery provided evidence of actual written public defamation under the Libel Statute but the 4th Court of Appeals said the articles were incapable of producing defamation "as a matter of law."

4. The TCPA (CPRC Chapter 27) has an internal flaw that allows news reporters to violate their own professional ethics and implement the said Act which should not apply to them. Anyone can use the Act's rapid dismissal procedures that short circuit the ordinary judicial process if they can show they were exercising their Constitutional Rights of Free Speech, Association or Petition. The Act defines the exercise of the constitutional right of free speech as any "communication made in connection with a matter of public concern (CPRC 27.001(3)." Therefore, a news reporter, who is NOT permitted to participate or exercise their own constitutional rights when reporting on a public concern, becomes a participant who can then use the Act as a defense when they injure the reputation of those they report on who really were using their own constitutional rights of free speech, association and petition, as Avery was. All evidence shows it was Avery who was exercising his constitutional rights not Baddour and Hearst.

Erroneous Rulings of the Fourth Court:

Regarding the truth of the articles, the Fourth Court of Appeals in San Antonio found that Avery had not shown prima facie evidence of the element of falsity to maintain his libel lawsuit. Truth is a defense in a libel suit. If the publisher can show that what they published was true then there can be no libel. The Fourth Court of Appeals made the most amazing admission and finding in Avery's case:

"Even if the captions incorrectly identified Avery as a secessionist, falsely implied Avery renounced his U.S. citizenship, incorrectly identified the Texians as secessionists, and falsely implied Avery was a member of a secessionist organization, the gist of the articles is substantially true: the Republic of Texas is a volunteer, non-violent organization premised on the belief that Texas is a sovereign nation and whose goal it is to legally extricate itself from the United States. No reasonable reader would conclude—as argued by Avery—that either he or the Republic of Texas is a “far-right fascist, neo-Nazi, part of the growing right-wing terrorist threat.” The only evidence of such a conclusion is Avery’s own allegations. However, “[b]are, baseless opinions [are not]a sufficient substitute for the clear and specific evidence required to establish a prima facie case under the [Act].” In re Lipsky, 460 S.W.3d at 592."

Avery provided extensive evidence that he was not a member of the Republic of Texas and Baddour and Hearst agreed and attempted to correct the articles in that regard. But they did not attempt to correct that issue on the web article until six days after they had been sued by Avery. Avery supplied extensive evidence that he was opposed to secession and had been interviewed by national newspapers on the subject and done radio shows on it as well. Avery showed evidence that the Republic of Texas was also opposed to secession.

Baddour published the falsehood that the ROT was a secessionist organization and that Avery was a member of it. Then they used that false premise to stack other inapplicable attributes on them from other hyperlinked articles showing that secessionists went to Russia to meet with fascist and neo-Nazis'. Then they attached another article about the Growing Right-Wing Terrorist Threat" which they claimed was now worse than Muslim terrorism. The Substantial Truth case law doctrine is misused in the Avery case to change his nature and world view to make him a terrorist which was perceived by the readers who said that Avery should be "sent to GITMO and given the enhanced interrogation."

Baddour and Hearst entered evidence themselves showing that at least 9 comments made by the public in the blog under their web article expressed hatred, ridicule and contempt which is not Avery's "baseless opinion" but rather evidence showing that the readers believed the lies and false gist and sting of the web article. And their evidence also shows that all 23 comments showed that they believed that the Republic of Texas was a secessionist organization, which is false. The Substantial Truth doctrine cannot make those opposed to secession into secessionists.

Regarding the capability of the article to be defamatory, case law has been substituted for statutory law in Texas regarding the finding of defamation as an element of libel. Case law says that defamation is a "matter of law," found only by a judge who rules on the capability of a publication to be defamatory. The judge is to determine if the publication would be defamatory if read by a "hypothetical objective, ordinary, reasonable reader." Thus the judge is the only person who fits this description. But he can be overruled by other judges on appeal if they are more objective, ordinary and reasonable than any lower court judge. A ludicrous situation at best. No judge is an ordinary reader!

On the other hand we have the following Statutory definition of defamation in libel as follows:

"ELEMENTS OF LIBEL. A libel is a defamation expressed in written or other graphic form that tends to blacken the memory of the dead or that tends to injure a living person's reputation and thereby expose the person to public hatred, contempt or ridicule, or financial injury or to impeach any person's honesty, integrity, virtue, or reputation or to publish the natural defects of anyone and thereby expose the person to public hatred, ridicule, or financial injury. (Texas Civil Practice & Remedy Code Section 73.001) (definition of libelous defamation in bold)

Statutory law has more weight than case law and the statutory definition of defamation is "written or other graphic form that tends to blacken the memory of the dead or that tends to injure a living person's reputation and thereby expose the person to public hatred, contempt or ridicule."

Even though the Fourth Court of Appeals mentioned defamation and stated that it was a "matter of law" and not the subjective opinion of the Plaintiff, they did not state a conclusion about the issue of defamation in the Avery case. They based their whole opinion on their finding that the articles were substantially true:

"Because Avery did not satisfy his burden of showing that the gist of the two articles was not substantially true, the Act requires that his action be dismissed. Therefore, the trial court did not err in granting appellees’ motion to dismiss Avery’s defamation claim."

But it is not substantially true that Avery was a member of the Republic of Texas and that he was a secessionist and that the Republic of Texas is a secessionist organization. This is the improper use of the Substantial Truth doctrine.

The result of the substitution of a "matter of law" finding of defamation for statutory defamation, is that no one can file a libel lawsuit knowing they have the element of defamation when only a judge can find it. They must risk being punished as a SLAPP suit filer even though they have evidence of statutory defamation. This creates a trap for innocent people who file suit because they have evidence of statutory defamation only to discover later that only a judge can find it and all their evidence of written public hatred, contempt and ridicule is disregarded. This is intolerable damage to the law and to those injured by libelous articles.

On the issue of the internal flaw in the TCPA, The excessively broad definition of the exercise of the freedom of speech, allows those who are not really doing so to use the Act to harm those who are doing so. The Act was passed by the legislature to protect those who are exercising their own rights of free speech, association and petition. But it is now used by those who merely report on others doing that to protect non-participants in public concerns from participants.

A news reporter need only show that they wrote an article about a public concern to use the Act to dismiss a libel claim against them. But in reality, news reporters are not permitted to exercise their own freedom of speech, association and petition related to any story they cover. They are to remain objective not become subjective participants.

All schools of news journalism and many news agencies, companies and associations teach and advocate that news reporters should not become participants in the stories they cover.

This means that Baddour and Hearst should not be able to use the Texas Citizen Participation Act Motion to Dismiss statute to get out from under a libel lawsuit as they were not participants in any matters they were sued for by Avery. There is no evidence that Baddour is a citizen of Texas or the U.S., or that he was participating in anything that he reported on. There is no evidence that he expressed his own opinion, or that he associated with Avery or the Republic of Texas. There is no evidence that he petitioned any thing or any one about any issue. He only wrote about other people doing that and made all statements as a matter of fact, not opinion.

Baddour and Hearst simply published articles as a matter of factual news with the wrong facts in order to create a 9/11 scare piece showing how one's fellow citizens are to be feared as terrorists. They covered the Avery story on 4/10/15 and worked on the articles for five months so they could print them on weekend of 9/11/15 to keep the domestic terrorism potential in the minds of their readers. And they were successful!

40% of the comments reflected public hatred, contempt and ridicule for the Republic of Texas, Avery and secessionists. While 60% simply did not trust the articles and tried to defend secession, as if the subjects of the articles were secessionists. This reflects the current American attitude towards mainstream news. Those who had faith in the news defamed Avery and those who didn't simply tried to defend secession. But all those who left comments were deceived by the articles.
