Hoy es el día más hermoso de nuestra vida, querido Sancho; los obstáculos más grandes, nuestras propias indecisiones; nuestro enemigo más fuerte, el miedo al poderoso y a nosotros mismos; la cosa más fácil, equivocarnos; la más destructiva, la mentira y el egoísmo; la peor derrota, el desaliento; los defectos más peligrosos, la soberbia y el rencor; las sensaciones más gratas, la buena conciencia, el esfuerzo para ser mejores sin ser perfectos, y sobretodo, la disposición para hacer el bien y combatir la injusticia dondequiera que esté.

Saudi Arabia borrows $17.5 billion from global investors

Saudi Aramco CEO: Happy to share financials when we go public
Saudi Arabia has just taken on a huge chunk of foreign debt.

For the first time in its history, the world's biggest oil exporting country sold bonds to global investors. It raised $17.5 billion Wednesday, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
The bonds are due to be repaid in 5, 10 and 30 years. Officials at Saudi Arabia's finance ministry were not immediately available for comment.
The sale is symbolic of the kingdom's shifting fortunes. Just five years ago it was unthinkable that Saudi Arabia, with its vast oil riches, would need to borrow money from abroad.
But the crash in oil prices has turned the kingdom's massive budget surplus into a gaping hole. It has already been forced to borrow from Saudi banks, and burn through a chunk of its foreign cash reserves.
"This is very positive step," said John Sfakianakis, director of economic research at the Gulf Research Center in Riyadh. "It will alleviate the pressure on the local banks, provide alternative revenue options and reduce the rate of foreign asset depletion."
Saudi Arabia, which relies on oil for three-quarters of its revenue, had a 2015 budget deficit of nearly $100 billion. In addition to borrowing more, it has been forced to slash spending by cutting salaries and subsidies on gas.
It's not just Saudi Arabia feeling the pinch. Other Gulf states are borrowing money too. Oil-rich Abu Dhabi issued a $5 billion bond in April, neighboring Qatar raised $9 billion a month later and Kuwait is planning to tap the international debt market for as much as $10 billion.
Very low interest rates in most developed economies are pushing investors to seek better returns elsewhere.
The Saudi 30-year bond pays 2.1% more than U.S. treasuries, according to a banker familiar with the deal, and experts say investors are looking beyond the immediate challenges posed by weak oil.
"There is a demand out there which is based on the inherent potential and strength of these economies," said Masood Ahmed, the Middle East and Central Asia Director for the International Monetary Fund. "Going forward, it will be important to accompany the attempt to get financing from the market with a credible coherent fiscal plan, a medium term plan to transform the economy because that will give ... more comfort to the investors."
Despite a recent increase in the oil price, the outlook for the region's oil exporters remains weak in the coming years, the IMF said in a report published Wednesday.
It said countries should accelerate reforms to diversify their economies, boost the role of private companies and create jobs for their fast growing populations.

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia unveiled an ambitious diversification plan. Under the plan, Saudi Arabia wants to boost non-oil revenues sixfold to $266 billion, sell part of national oil company Aramco on the stock market, and create a $1.9 trillion public fund to invest at home and abroad.
"I think it's great that they have a vision. It's important to tell the people the end point of where they want to go," said Ahmed. "The challenge will be to implement, prioritize, sequence these programs so that in three years, people can begin to see the results."

Gutting America’s Socialism

new-york-1590176_960_720 PixabayOpEd by John Anthony
With or without Hillary at the helm, we can stop socialism in America.
Recently, Sustainable Freedom Lab hosted a three-part podcast series called Socialism in America. Our guests had traveled to over 70 countries, lived under socialism and communism and even begun businesses worldwide and in the United States. We had a software installation expert who works closely with project teams in socialist countries and is in a unique position to understand what these workers think of the United States.
The information these people shared left no doubt that our country has left free market capitalism in the rearview mirror and rocketed into our own brand of socialism.
Is it possible, at this stage, to slow down or even turn back to capitalism? Socialism is more than an economic trend, it represents a cultural shift that has been decades in developing.
The Affordable Care Act, unthinkable in the ’90s, is now embedded in the United States. As we watch its engineered failure, we are only months away from Obamacare’s collapse into federally run socialized medicine.
Common Core nationalized our educational system, even though three congressional laws forbid federal involvement in local learning.
HUD’s newest partnership with the Departments of Education and Transportation enables those agencies to dictate where our children will go to school, who will be in their classrooms, and which socioeconomic brackets will fill our neighborhoods.
In many ways, we have devolved beyond a socialist’s dream.
The government can now exert sufficient financial pressure to control whom your neighbors will be, the size of your community lots, and to annex communities into regions ultimately operated by unelected councils over whom you have no say.
In spite of the tentacles of a powerful government snaking into our towns, counties and states, it is not only possible to reverse socialism; the trend has already started in communities across America.

Growing socialism’s seeds

The key to destroying socialism is not to fight it; it is to starve it. To understand how, we must first understand how that contemptible model took foothold in a country that prides itself on freedom.
In the 1850s, Karl Marx was determined to replace Western capitalism with socialism. Marx believed that greedy capitalists exploited workers and that beneath their smiles Americans felt oppressed. Once given the opportunity, the socialist reasoned, the American working class would revolt against and overthrow the capitalist class; clearing the path for the egalitarian promise of socialism.
Marx was correct. America has its poor, its middle and wealthy classes. But, in the 1800s and early 1900s, while America had its clashes, there was no broad class conflict. There was a good reason.
Marx’s world was one of class immobility where those living in poverty remained impoverished for generations, and where workers were indentured to an upper class that accumulated wealth at their employees’ expense.
But, Americans had class mobility. Like Horatio Alger’s forgotten tales of “Ragged Dick”, with hard work and sacrifice the poor could traverse the road to the middle class and even on to wealth. This ‘hope’ and ‘possibility’ robbed socialism of the single component it needed to survive. Conflict!
In the 1950s that began to change. As newer technologies transferred the dependence of capitalists from their worker productivity, to their capital investments, American’s income gap began to widen. The capitalists, not the workers owned the computers, the machinery and the technology. In other words, they owned the capital that was increasingly responsible for creating their products and the workers became a smaller portion of the economic equation.
As jobs flew overseas and technology advanced, politicians strangled new businesses with mounting regulations, inspections, certifications, and fees. Middle class jobs opportunities slowly ground down. By the mid 1980s America’s middle class began shrinking until today, the United States, which once boasted the largest middle class in the world, now has the smallest middle class of any first world nation.
As middle class job opportunities shrank, so too did economic mobility. According to the economic Gini scale, today the US is almost as economically immobile as aristocratic Britain. People may want to rise out of poverty, but there is less place for them to go.
With the middle class shrinking and the income gap widening, the only piece missing to usher in socialism was class warfare. But Marxist’s followers had already embedded class conflict in our colleges. The Frankfurt School was a socialist incubator that relocated from Germany to the campus of Columbia University during Hitler’s rise. By the 1960s liberation movement, women’s studies, race studies and black history studies created permanent underclasses within the economic classes.
“Critical Theory” evolved in academia as a philosophy that criticized Americas’ traditional cultural values while it promoted women’s and race theories paving the way for class victimization and militancy.
So-called ‘intellectuals’ mocked the once popular Horatio Alger and his uplifting tales while denying the existence of the American Dream.

Barack Obama’s response to the Great Recession fed the final seasoned log onto the bonfire of socialism. Plummeting unemployment numbers seemed to satisfy millions that he was indeed improving the economy. Even the revelation of record numbers of uncounted unemployed and underemployed workers was still not his greatest gift to socialism.
President Obama fostered an economy with jobs for the wealthy, and jobs and benefits for the poor, but offered little to the critical middle class. Because of his “jobs polarization,” our 44th president has nearly ground economic mobility and opportunity, the heart of America’s economic engine, to a stuttering halt.
By 2016, America was a class-battling socialist nation.

Smothering the flames of socialism

We also have the tools to annihilate socialism. We can manage politicians, shrink the income gap, and restart economic mobility.
Mark Herr, co-founder of the Center for Self-Governance, outlined a brilliant program on our podcast that engages workers, activists, students and church members in what he calls “applied civics.”
Following the 1789 signing of our Constitution, our Founders told us exactly what Americans must do to assure politicians at every level, even the U.S. President, keep our nation prosperous and free. We ignored their directions.
Mark has developed extraordinary teams that are bringing the left and right together, undoing damaging legislation, replacing corrupt politicians and returning our communities to our Founders’ model.
Republican Veny Musum and Democrat Upendra Chivukula, co-authored a book, The 3rd Way – Building Inclusive Capitalism, that outlines a method to close the income gap by redirecting a business’ taxes back into their workers’ pockets to purchase an interest in the company’s growing capital.
This simple practice upends the entire income gap problem that feeds discontent and hopelessness. Their solution benefits business owners, creates wealth for workers, and even provides more long-term federal revenues. Over 1,000 American companies are already following their model.
Sustainable Freedom Lab Lab has created a clearinghouse and tools anyone can use to bring all of these great ideas together to end the reign of smothering federal agencies and corrupt and bungling politicians.
Economic immobility, class conflict and unharnessed corrupt politicians breed the conflict that is the oxygen socialism needs to survive.
Working together, we can starve the fire.

This Email Proves Obamacare Is Meant to Fail in Order to Usher in Government-Run Socialist Health Care

obamacare-gunBy Melissa Dykes
Who can keep up with all the revelations coming out of over 10,000 of Hillary camp chairman John Podesta’s leaked emails?
It’s actually a brilliant strategy to give people corruption fatigue because it’s so many revelations so quickly that, just like the Snowden leaks, it overwhelms people and they shut down. Toss something about learned helplessness in there, and we’re about on target for what’s going on with Hillary right now. It’s actually pretty amazing she’ll be able to show her face at the debates tonight.
But this particular email is key to just how utterly fake and fraudulent our government really is.
Remember when Nancy Pelosi infamously told Congress they’d have to pass the Affordable Care Act bill so they could find out what was in it?
Check this out:
(click to enlarge)
In an email thread dated September 26, 2015 between Hillary and her senior policy adviser, Ann O’Leary, titled “Memo on Cadillac Tax for HRC,” Hillary wrote, “Given the politics now w bipartisan support including Schumer, I’ll support repeal w ‘sense of the Senate’ that revenues would have to be found. I’d be open to a range of options to do that. But we have to be careful that the R version passes which begins the unraveling of the ACA.”
“Which begins the unraveling of the Affordable Care Act.”
A Democrat supporting Republican legislation to destroy Obamacare on purpose. How many millions have they raked in on this deal and bilked the American people for in Obamacare penalties because they can’t afford the “affordable” health care? And the American people will look at this like a “victory” when it does unravel, even though it has been the plan all along.
A plan to usher in something even worse.
This is why Hillary Clinton played coy and acted like she had no idea why Obamacare was causing such significant insurance rate hikes when a small business owner asked her about it at a Democratic town hall event last May.
They’re all working together, folks. Obamacare was always meant to fail — on purpose — to bring in a single-payer, government-controlled socialist medicine system.
Senator Harry Reid said as much back in 2013 when he was point-blank asked if he thought Obamacare was secretly a step toward single-payer health care. His answer? “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.” That’s three yeses. He didn’t even try to hide it.
Obamacare was put in place purposefully to destroy private healthcare and put the government in charge of America’s “health” care (which is really sick care). And since we know they can’t even make a noodle salad without it being corrupt as hell, can you imagine what this country will be like when the military-industrial complex that runs our country is in charge of our health?
The email is another reason the system wants to make sure Hillary Clinton becomes the next president… she knows what the ultimate plans are and will keep them on track for the lunatics running this asylum.

The Wealth Effect Failure

banksters-preview.jpgBy Susan Boskey
People tend to increase spending when the prices of their stock market and real estate assets rise. They perceive it as an increase to their financial security. This is known as the wealth effect.
The wealth effect is a psychological phenomenon that causes people to spend more as the value of their assets rises. The premise is that when consumers’ homes or investment portfolios increase in value, they feel more financially secure, so they increase their spending. Conversely, when consumers see the value of their homes or portfolios fall, they tend to spend less. The wealth effect attempts to explain why consumers might change their spending habits even if their income and fixed costs have stayed the same. ~ Investopedia
Monetary policymakers consider the increased consumer spending that follows a rise in the price of assets to be an indicator of economic recovery. But is it really and does the everyday family benefit? What is the reality?
  • Higher home prices (significantly increased since 2008) make home ownership more unavailable to more people. Home ownership is at its lowest rate since tracking began in 1963.
  • Higher home prices also put rental property prices out-of-reach to more people.
  • Home sales in 2016 are not broad-based and people-driven as they were in 2008, albeit via sub-prime loans. Now a large percentage of homes sales are cash sales of homeowners and investors (domestic and foreign) who need somewhere to park assets. Banks offering low interest rates remain an unattractive option.
  • Additionally, the 2016 big bump in home sale prices and purchases are pocketed in 3 main areas of the United States due to the presence of the U.S Government, government contracts, and technology companies: Washington D.C., New York, and San Francisco where tech employees can get home loans based on their stock option prices.
In April of 2016 GOBankingRates.com created a survey they called: Financial Burdens Survey. The respondents ranked their personal finance issues according to the six categories the survey provided. Interesting to me is that a category called, personal debt, was totally absent! Here are their six categories:
  • High cost of living
  • Healthcare costs
  • Insufficient income
  • Taxes (income, property, and/or other taxes)
  • Retirement savings
  • Higher education costs
Not surprising, one in four Americans responding to the survey said the “high cost of living” was their most challenging personal finance issue. Not only do salaries and wages fail to keep up with the cost-of-living (since the 1970s) but also the killer – personal debt – takes a growing bite out of incomes.
The wealth effect is a smokescreen. It distracts from any focus being put on the flaws of the monetary system. Rising asset prices favor the haves who own assets (minority), while extracting precious resources from the have-nots (majority).
More decent-paying jobs can certainly help; but alone, jobs cannot make it “right.” Why? The independent-of-governments central banking system pulls the strings. Simply put: The money they issue is systemically devalued via a mathematical formula decreasing money’s purchasing power. Anyone who has studied this, as I have, knows that nothing short of a system overhaul could possibly bring back long-term economic recovery. Even if everyone had a job, their hard-earned money over time will purchase less and less.
The good news is that by this knowledge you can rethink the best ways to earn, spend, save and invest to ensure the most quality in your life with the least amount of stress. That is, until really real change takes place at the monetary system level.

Is “Climate Change” Cover For Geoengineering? CIA Director Wants Spraying

climate-changeBy Cassius Kamarampi
Is “climate change” a cover for geoengineering, a premeditated campaign to generate public support for such programs as “SAI,” or Stratospheric Aerosol Injection, as proposed by CIA director John Brennan?

While human activity of all kinds may well affect the climate, it would seem as if the U.S. government, U.N., and other bodies of people are working to raise public fear of “climate change” for the purpose of generating support for weather modification technology, and geoengineering. David Keith is one of the more commonly recognized proponents of geoengineering.
My personal prediction is, in agreement with geoengineering activist Matt Landman, that eventually the U.S. will openly declare “we are going to commence geoengineering now to fight climate change,” as if they haven’t been using it for years already, and then it will escalate to unseen proportions, making these chemtrails look like child’s play.
CIA director John Brennan even said some nations would be in opposition to an SAI program, probably because Iran’s president already accused them of using some technology to engineer their drought.
An SAI program would surely be a tool to enforce hegemony, never some benevolent last resort to saving the planet from “climate change” which, if it really is a threat and it could be, it is actually exacerbated and perpetuated by geoengineering itself, with a wide range of other factors.
This Era of Wisdom video explains. Please share this with as many people as possible, go out of your way to show friends and family the sky when it is being sprayed, and info about it from credible researchers and writers such as Peter A. Kirby.

What Washington Really Wants in Syria

washington-syriaBy Joseph Thomas
When the United States announced that it would be abandoning “peace talks” with Russia regarding the ongoing conflict in Syria, many had already dismissed them as disingenuous.
The Washington Post in an article titled, “U.S. abandons efforts to work with Russia on Syria,” would claim:
U.S.-Russia relations fell to a new post-Cold War low Monday as the Obama administration abandoned efforts to cooperate with Russia on ending the Syrian civil war and forming a common front against terrorists there, and Moscow suspended a landmark nuclear agreement.
The Washington Post would also admit, however, in regards to Russian allegations that the US categorically failed to separate militants it has been backing in the 5 year long conflict and universally designated foreign terrorist organizations, that:
Russia’s version of the sequence of events mandated by the deal is “explicitly not true,” a senior administration official said. “Separation was not step one,” but was supposed to occur after seven days without major violence. The Russians, the official said, have “constantly tried to move the goal posts.”
This admission made by US policymakers, politicians and the Western media all but admits that the US has never prioritized confronting terrorism in Syria and has been using the presence of terrorist organizations merely as a pretext for more direct Western military intervention. In fact, by acknowledging that Western-backed militant groups are indistinguishable and inseparable from designated terrorist organizations including Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise, Jabhat Al-Nusra, the US is all but admitting it is intentionally arming and equipping the terrorists themselves.
This explains the apparently inexhaustible resources terrorist organizations like Al-Nusra possess and why they have risen to prominence above so-called “moderate rebels” the US and its allies have repeatedly claimed they were funding hundreds of billions of dollars throughout the conflict.
It appears that the answer to the question as to how Al-Nusra could rise to prominence in Syria despite “moderates” receiving hundreds of billions in aid from the US and its allies is that there were never any moderates to begin with, and that the US and its allies were arming and funding terrorist organizations, including Al-Nusra, since the conflict began.
It also appears to be no coincidence that this scenario now openly unfolding in Syria fulfills warnings published by Western journalists as early as 2007 (Seymour Hersh, “The Redirection”) in which it was revealed that the US was already at that time providing material support to extremist organizations “sympathetic to Al Qaeda” toward the end goal of overthrowing the governments of both Iran and Syria.
While the US now claims Russia has sabotaged US efforts to bring an end to hostilities in Syria, Washington is also illogically attempting to argue that the failure of its feigned “peace talks” has also somehow prevented the US from targeting terrorists organizations in Syria, the alleged pretext of America’s presence in Syria to begin with.
Despite strained relations with Russia, the US is still cooperating with Moscow regarding the use of Syrian airspace to avoid unintentional confrontations. While the cessation of hostilities may have collapsed, is there really any excuse as to why separating designated terrorist organizations from militant groups the US and its allies are providing billions in weapons and equipment to is still not an absolute and urgent priority?
The answer is, no — there is no excuse. Or perhaps it is more accurate to say, it is simply an excuse for the US to continue funneling men and materiel into Syria Washington knows with absolute certainty will end up in the ranks of Al Qaeda, whom the US admittedly intended to use as early as 2007 to overthrow the Syrian government with.

What Washington Really Wants in Syria

Beginning in 2001, the United States has systematically destroyed the nations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Yemen, while either directly or indirectly laying waste to the nations of Sudan and Somalia. The nation of Iran was also subjected to multiple attempted provocations and US-driven subversion since 2001.

This Book Could Save Your Life (Ad)

While the United States has created narratives for the public to serve as apparently “unique” and independent justifications for each and every one of these conflicts, often predicated on averting a “humanitarian disaster” or pursuing “terrorists” and even preventing “weapons of mass destruction” from being used against the West and its allies, America’s serial blitzkrieg across North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia are part of a singular, admitted agenda.
US Army General Wesley Clark, in a 2007 Flora TV talk titled, “A Time to Lead,” would reveal this singular agenda by relating a conversation he had as far back as 1991 with then US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Paul Wolfowitz, by stating (our emphasis):
I said Mr. Secretary you must be pretty happy with the performance of the troops in Desert Storm. And he said, well yeah, he said but but not really, he said because the truth is we should have gotten rid of Saddam Hussein and we didn’t. And this was just after the Shia uprising in March of ’91 which we had provoked and then we kept our troops on the side lines and didn’t intervene. And he said, but one thing we did learn, he said, we learned that we can use our military in the region in the Middle East and the Soviets wont stop us. He said, and we have got about five or ten years to clean up those all Soviet client regimes; Syria, Iran, Iraq, – before the next great super power comes on to challenge us.
And indeed, even from 1991 onward, the goal of US intervention across the planet has been to establish deeply-entrenched global hegemony before another rising world power could balance American geopolitical domination.
Fast forward to today, with the US on the brink of war with Russia in Syria, and with China in the South China Sea, the United States has run out of time and finds the leading edge of its hegemonic ambitions chaffing against a reemerging Russia and a rising China.
So while Washington has concocted an array of excuses as to why it is involved in Syria’s conflict, running the full gambit from fearing “weapons of mass destruction” to fighting terrorists to addressing humanitarian concerns, the reality of America’s involvement in Syria boils down to the pursuit of the latest and most desperate leg of its rush to dominance before emerging world powers reintroduced balance and limits to Western hegemony.
It is, therefore, incumbent upon the world to reject Washington’s various excuses for intervening in Syria, expose the truth driving its involvement in (and responsibility for) the conflict, confront Washington regarding its state sponsorship of terrorist organizations it itself has designated as such and bring the Syrian conflict as well as America’s latest “growth spurt” to an abrupt end.
Global peace and stability depends on bringing this decades-long global power-grab to an end, in an atmosphere of conflict and confrontation many fear may even lead to a direct confrontation between nuclear-armed states.

Ecuador Admits They Silenced Assange Because Clinton Leaks Were “Interfering” With US Election

wikileaks-assange-thumbBy Claire Bernish
Julian Assange abruptly had his tether to the outside world purposely cut off Monday, when — as WikiLeaks announced on Twitter — his “internet connection was intentionally severed by a state party.”
Several hours later, WikiLeaks added:
We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet access Saturday, 5pm GMT, shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speeches.
WikiLeaks is, of course, referring to the ongoing massive dump of documents heisted from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s email account — proving Assange’s intent to deliver transparency in his October Surprise in the remaining days before Americans vote in one of the most contentious presidential elections in U.S. history.
Speculation and accusation immediately ensued — in particular, theories positing the United States government had followed through on a ludicrous public vow to retaliate against Russia with a somehow covert cyber attack — either directly or through manipulation of officials in the Ecuadorian embassy-turned-asylum where Assange has resided for years.
WikiLeaks then lent additional credence to that theory early Tuesday in a tweet, which read:
BREAKING: Multiple US sources tell us John Kerry asked Ecuador to stop Assange from publishing Clinton docs during FARC peace negotiations.
In the context of tweets prior to that about Assange’s riven internet connection — which proffered what appeared to be encryption keys headed sequentially with each of three “pre-commitment[s]” on “John Kerry,” “Ecuador,” and “UK FCO” — that announcement further fueled speculation without offering proof.
In fact, The Free Thought Project found the timing of the Internet cutoff in relation to WikiLeaks’ release of the factious Goldman Sachs transcripts so dubious, we posited the move akin to flagrant state-sponsored censorship of the press.
Now, as it turns out, that speculation was on the mark — on Tuesday evening, Ecuador announced to the world it had, indeed, severed the WikiLeaks founder’s Internet connection because releases of the Podesta files were interfering in U.S. electoral politics. According to Ecuador’s official statement, with emphasis added:
Ecuador granted political asylum to Julian Assange in 2012 based on his legitimate fears of political persecution because of his journalistic activities as the editor of WikiLeaks. In recent weeks, WikiLeaks has published a wealth of documents, impacting on the U.S. election campaign. This decision was taken exclusively by that organization.
The Government of Ecuador respects the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states. It does not interfere in external electoral process, nor does it favor any particular candidate.
Accordingly, Ecuador has exercised its sovereign right to temporarily restrict access to some of its private communications network within its Embassy in the United Kingdom. This temporary restriction does not prevent the WikiLeaks organization from carrying out its journalistic activities.


While that point did prove true — after the early morning statement from WikiLeaks about Assange’s cut connection, another trove of documents from the Podesta files were released — the move still amounts to state censure for two reasons.
For one, severing Assange’s Internet connection constitutes government punishment without his ability to either defend his position or refute Ecuador’s assumptions he intended to disrupt the election.
Secondly, the fact Assange has no other viable means of communication with the world equates that abrupt removal of access with the blatant suppression of an authoritarian government writ large.
Additionally, in light of the Ecuadorian government’s previous assertion it would defend Assange’s press freedoms unconditionally, the sudden removal of his ability to communicate — coincident with the Secretary of State John Kerry’s ongoing negotiations in Ecuador and continued repercussions to the Clinton campaign from the October Surprise — would lend legitimacy to suspicions the U.S. government indeed played a more direct role in the decision than is being asserted.
Although that last point may prove unfounded — or never come to light — it would appear freedom of the press and of speech have suffered a fortuitous and telling direct hit.

What A Load of Crap! Hillary’s Campaign Bus Unloads Human Waste Down A Storm Sewer

cvesxrqxgaaibpsBy Catherine J. Frompovich
I don’t know about my readers, but my Philadelphia area newscasts have been reporting on the illegal dumping of human waste by a Hillary campaign bus, which is a prosecutable offense!  In this video, we hear an eye witness to the event give his opinion.
CBS46 News
Interestingly, the DNC issued an apology for the “human error”, but one has to wonder: Are the Democrats that damn dumb about things that they think they can keep breaking rules, regulations and laws and still get away with it?
Well, if their ‘champion’ Hillary Clinton can ‘bleach’ over 30,000 State Department emails from a personal server she operated out of her home and through which her State Department emails were routed, but not be prosecuted by an inept FBI, isn’t it time to rethink the sad state of politics and politicians in the United States?

“Hillary, You Are A Grand Level Thief” — Haitian Relief Worker

clinton-foundation-haitiBy Catherine J. Frompovich
Humanity is now at an incomparable crossroads of “humanism, consciousness and caring” or devolving further into a totally degenerate and fascist “dog-eat-dog” world that is being controlled by corrupt politicians and the New World Order ‘gang’ of global financial criminals who work for no viable humane social fabric EXCEPT a system that works for, and profits, them and their best vested interests.  Apparently, Hillary Clinton is the epitome of that New World Order.
In the video below, we hear first-hand, on-the-scene reports of what’s really going on in Haiti after the most recent hurricane—“Matthew,” and even more specifically following the devastating 7.0 earthquake of January 12, 2010 that saw the Clinton Foundation ‘jump in’ to raise billions of dollars for Haitian relief with only about 2 percent of the raised monies given to the poor Haitians—something that needs to be investigated immediately by international law as a scam and crime defrauding both those generous folks who gave donations and the Clinton Foundation that has not been honest in its purpose of raising billions of relief money for Haiti and its people.

Readers may want to replay that video in order to have reality sink in as to what kind of human being Hillary Clinton actually is.  Is she what she purports to be, or is she one of the “old boys’ network” who uses everyone and everything like a disposable commodity, especially the poor black folks of Haiti in their most desperate hours of need?  What do the black folk in the USA think about such treatment to people of color in need?
In this video we hear a plea being made about obtaining an audit of the ‘stolen’ money that the Clinton Foundation collected in the name of, but did not give to, Haitian relief.


Clinton Foundation “invades” Haiti

In the first video, we heard how gold mines in Haiti allegedly were ‘distributed’ to Clinton associates!
That needs to be investigated, confirmed and even prosecuted for stealing a country’s natural assets, I would imagine.
Furthermore, Hillary Clinton is asked to disclose where the money ‘stolen’ from the Haitian relief efforts has gone and for an audit of the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Relief Fund be published.  That should be a priority issue for everyone who believes in integrity, fairness and “truth in advertising.”
The audit and facts may come too late to influence voters’ opinions, but better late than never, as prosecutions can take place in honest courts of justice.  However, don’t ask the U.S. FBI to get involved, I offer.
Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation need to fess up to what’s going on with the billions of dollars it took in for Haitian relief, but obviously dropped the ball on distributing it to Haitians.
The Haitian people are suffering beyond belief and Americans don’t give a damn, especially the current Democratic presidential candidate.  What a shame!

CDC Requests Your Comments Regarding the MMR and the MMRV Vaccines; Let’s Give Our All to Them Now!

cdc-mmr-vaccineBy Catherine J. Frompovich
Immediately upon the ‘heels’ of the closed comment period for the CDC’s Proposed Rulemaking regarding its power grab on communicable diseases and quarantines, including forced vaccinations, etc., (see my article about that) the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have opened a rather interesting request for comments about a most controversial set of vaccines: the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine and the Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella (MMRV) vaccine.
The comment period ends December 19, 2016 and can be accessed at this CDC website.
Before I go into some details as to why I think every person ought to make a comment, I think readers ought to know some ‘housekeeping rules’ so that your comment is accepted as valid and posted, since during the last comment period, I monitored the comments with another vaccine researcher and we even telephoned the contractor who posts/handles the CDC’s comments in Virginia and talked with a staffer there, which prompts me to make the following suggestions.
No. 1
Make certain that you include the comment docket number and name in the very beginning of the comment, e.g., Docket No. CDC-2016-0094 / Proposed Revised Vaccine Information Materials for MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) and MMRV (Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella) Vaccines.
No. 2
Follow the rules regarding the number of characters (not words) or, if you want to get wordy, file your comment via a Word document attachment as per instructions on the CDC comment page.
No. 3
Make certain you file your comment as soon as possible, as we are coming into the holiday season with Thanksgiving and holiday shopping and parties, this most important health matter may slip by and you will be very disappointed with yourself for not telling the CDC what you think about those vaccines.
No. 4
In your comments, you need to recommend what you would like the CDC to promote regarding information healthcare professionals must tell patients and intended vaccinees about both those vaccines BEFORE they are administered to patients!

Background Information

The MMR-II® and MMRV (ProQuad®) vaccines ingredients are listed on this website on Page 3 of 4.  Varicella, by the way, is Chickenpox.  Human diploid lung cells are cell lines from aborted fetuses!  If you want to know more about what many of the ingredients in those vaccines are capable of doing within human biology/biochemistry, my book Vaccination Voodoo, What YOU Don’t Know About Vaccines explains from published scientific research, papers and journals how biology is affected negatively and other information you may not be aware of, since most vaccine ingredients can and do cause significant biological harm.
According to the CDC’s and HRSA’s “Petitions Filed, Compensated and Dismissed, by Alleged Vaccine, Since the Beginning of VCIP, 10/1/1988 through 10/03/2016” database [1], there were the following:
MMR vaccine: 925 Injuries; 58 Deaths; 387 Compensated; 516 Dismissed
MMR-Varicella vaccine: 37 Injuries; 1 Death; 16 Compensated; 9 Dismissed
The ‘odds’ according to the above stats seem like a ‘crap shoot’ rather than medical science, in my opinion, when you factor in the “Dismissed.”
MMR is a Trivalent vaccine, i.e., 3 disease actives, whereas MMRV is a Quadrivalent, i.e., 4 disease actives contained in one vaccine syringe and administered at the same time.
Many parents and physicians question the safety and efficacy of multivalent vaccines. [2]

Informed Consent

According to the Federal Register publication notice, October 18, 2016, (Pp. 71735-71736):
The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (Pub. L. 99-660), as amended by section 708 of Public Law 103-183, added section 2126 to the Public Health Service Act, Section 2126, codified at 42 U.S.C. 300aa-26, requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to develop and disseminate vaccine information materials for distribution by all health care providers in the United States to any patient (or to the parent or legal representative in the case of a child) receiving vaccines covered under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
That is something most, if not all, health professionals who administer vaccines/vaccinations DO NOT comply with nor abide by since most information disseminated states that vaccines are ‘safe’ when we find contradictory information on all vaccine package inserts, including the MMR-II and MMRV.
Here’s the vaccine package insert for Merck’s MMR-II vaccine.  Read it carefully, especially taking note of the following sections: Contraindications, Warnings, Precautions, Pregnancy, and Adverse Reactions.  How many healthcare professionals tell parents or vaccinees about these important “informed consent” items?
It is my opinion and recommendation that every prospective vaccinee, parent or legal representative should receive ALL those items listed categorically and individually on a separate handout for each single or multivalent vaccine.
Here’s the vaccine package insert for Merck’s ProQuad (MMRV) vaccine.  Again, read it very carefully, especially taking note of the specifics cited above.
As vaccines/vaccinations are handled and administered currently, there is absolutely NO fully informed consent obtained by all healthcare professionals who administer vaccines, and that’s in violation of the law, I contend.

You can’t handle the truth about vaccines (Ad)

In my opinion, one of the foremost recommendations for the MMR-II and MMRV vaccines is that ALL the above cited Contraindications, Warnings, Precautions, Pregnancy, and Adverse Reactions must be given to every parent, adult and legal representative in the new updated versions of “What You Need to Know” information that will be reformulated as a result of the current comment obtaining process ending December 19, 2016.
Ironically and according to the CDC, “Since April 15, 1992, any health care provider in the United States who intends to administer one of these covered vaccines is required to provide copies of the relevant vaccine information materials prior to administration of any of these vaccines,” which I contend and allege does NOT happen, since every parent with a vaccine-damaged child invariably says something to the effect that if he/she had known what’s on the vaccine package insert, they would not have permitted the child to receive that vaccine!
Therefore, I believe unequivocally that medical malpractice has occurred and all healthcare professionals should be held accountable for a breach of medical ethics!
Furthermore, I’ve come to the conclusion from my many years of vaccine information research (since the 1980s) that there should be NO multivalent vaccines given at one time—some kids get 9 vaccines shot into them at one ‘well baby’ visit.  The baby may have been well when it entered the physician’s office, but I can almost guarantee you that the baby will not be well within the next day or so, if not sooner!
Since I must admit that I am biased against vaccines neurotoxic chemicals (Thimerosal, aluminum in four formulations, formaldehyde/Formalin, polysorbate 80/Tween-80), plus human diploid cells which can impact homologous recombination [3,4], foreign DNA, mycoplasmas, and synthesized Nano- particles [5,6] especially, I contend that proper vetting of vaccine ingredients for safety and efficacy have not been tested—annual flu vaccines are an excellent example—so all vaccines should not be labeled as ‘safe and effective’.
Neither have vaccines been tested for their ability to cause cancer, interfere with fertility and reproduction, or teratogenicity—which is stated on vaccine package inserts, especially when 9 vaccines are given at one time to a less than 25 pound infant with a less than fully functional and developed immune system.  Furthermore, no one has scientifically researched the effects of 9 vaccines given at one time, just hyperbole—pure and simple hyperbole—that is parroted by the CDC/FDA from Big Pharma’s public relations releases, I allege.
One important fact about Merck’s MMR vaccine is that the Mumps active vaccinology science had been fudged for ten years and was not up to medical-scientific standards according to two Merck employee whistleblowers who have a lawsuit filed in Federal district court in Philadelphia, PA. [7,8]
Lastly, the MMR vaccine is the ‘vehicle’ that projected Dr Andrew Wakefield into vaccine notoriety that resulted in losing his medical license in the UK, but propelled him and his VAXXED documentary crew into the extraordinary work they are doing now traveling the USA where, at each venue, they hear the oft-told story [9] of how parents ‘lost’ their child to Autism or some health defect after receiving a vaccine, in particular the MMR vaccine.
Now that the CDC has asked for the public’s comments regarding the MMR-II and MMRV vaccines, I heartily suggest giving your suggestions as to what CDC should be publishing about those vaccines in their new and revised “What You Need to Know” bulletins.
Here’s where to file your comment https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=CDC-2016-0094 before December 19, 2016.  Consider it an early Christmas present to humanity!

Exposed: Deep State Ties to the Failed Turkish Coup

turkey_intelBy Stephen A. Molling
Emails released by WikiLeaks describe recent activities of the American deep state. Of note is a statement by Henry Kissinger about President Erdogan six months before a failed coup against the Turkish leader:
Kissinger felt it was a “fantasy” to think Erdogan could become pro-Western, since he is very pro-Islamic.
The quote is from a leaked email entitled Turkey and ISIS (Defense Policy Board) sent to Hillary Clinton Advisor, Jake Sullivan, on January 17, 2016. The sixteen-point memo is intended to alert the Clinton campaign of the Defense Policy Board’s conclusion that President Erdogan is persona non grata.
Henry Kissinger is famous for the statement that “power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” He has proven experience exercising that power while removing uncooperative heads of state.
After serving on the Defense Policy Board (DPB) for decades, 93-year-old Kissinger is the ranking elder of the council. He expressed the consensus of the group when he called the Turkish President anti-Western. For Erdogan it could have been the kiss of death.
When Henry Kissinger was the National Security Advisor, Socialist President Salvador Allende of Chile died in a military coup followed by mass killings and arrests. Later, when Kissinger was the Secretary of State, a similar coup occurred in Argentina followed by a military dictatorship. Clearly, bad things happen when Henry Kissinger thinks a foreign leader is anti-Western.
Kissinger is not the only member of the DPB with experience removing foreign leaders. This leaked memo from the State Department announced the addition of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to the group. Her trophies include the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, and sanctions imposed on Iraq that starved hundreds of thousands of people. She later described those actions as “worth it.”
The author of the email, Stu Eizenstat, is a former Ambassador to the European Union and a former Deputy Secretary of the Treasury under Bill Clinton. He could not have known that his email would inform the public that U.S. decision makers discussed actions against President Erdogan six months before the failed coup.
Attorney Eizenstat’s memo reads like a court room indictment against the Turkish leader:
Turkey is a very difficult ally. Prime Minister Erdogan has taken Turkey in a more Islamic direction,
Erdogan was driving the country to the brink of civil conflict
His top priority and ours are different. Ours is fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq. His is combating the PKK.
He has acted provocatively in recent weeks… these types of actions have the risk of drawing in the U.S.
Erdogan believes the U.S. needs Turkey more than Turkey needs the U.S. There was a division in the Board of how to deal with this problem.
Eizenstat suggests that plans were discussed to use economic warfare and covert actions to “help” the Turkish President to understand that he “needs” America.
Along with most other world leaders, Erdogan has made many attempts to stay on the good side of the power-elite in Washington. The foreign leaders are motivated by videos showing Saddam Hussein hanging from the end of a rope and Ghaddafi being beaten and killed by a mob.
Erdogan has also seen the unfortunate spectacle of Hillary Clinton squealing with delight over Gaddafi’s death. She was overjoyed that she completed her first foreign coup and could now join Kissinger and Albright in the Deep State Hall of Fame. The difference between her coup and those of her elder colleagues was that they left a government in place afterwards, while Hillary Clinton left only chaos behind in Libya.
Erdogan wanted badly to cooperate with the demands made on him by the deep state but he could not comply without losing his power and possibly his life. This email shows that Erdogan dispatched his Prime Minister to request a private meeting with Hillary Clinton in September of 2015.
It is important to realize that Hillary Clinton is not currently a member of the U.S. government. The official request for a meeting by the Turkish government was unusual as was her briefing by the DPB. Welcome to the American deep state, where the functions of government rest in the hands of a small group of unelected insiders.
Additional emails to the Clinton campaign foreshadow the demise of the Turkish leader. Two weeks after the memo from Eizenstat, Campaign Chairman Podesta received an article from the German Marshall Fund, a think tank headed by a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. The article is entitled “Is Turkey a Reliable Ally?” The conclusion of the article is a definite “no.” More bad news for the Turkish President.
Erdogan is aware of his precarious position. He has seen the map created by the U.S. military illustrating what a “better” Middle East would look like. In the map, Turkey has lost a third of its territory to a new entity called Kurdistan. If Erdogan allows that to happen, his own people will rise up against him.
On July 15, a military coup was launched to remove Erdogan from power. The Turkish military sent out squads to arrest or kill the President. They put tanks on the streets and took over government facilities just as they had in previous successful military coups. This time they failed.
The Russians warned Erdogan in advance of the coup and may have actually sheltered him at their base in Syria. From his hiding place, Erdogan was able to inspire resistance to the coup and he survived. Afterwards, he arrested tens of thousands, many of whom are still incarcerated.
The leaked emails indicate that the coup took place after the deep state decided it was time for President Erdogan to go. Instead, of “drawing them closer to the U.S.” the coup made Erdogan and millions of Turks understand that they are fighting for survival. Those who fight for survival usually prevail over those who fight only for the aphrodisiac effect of power.
Other nations have also decided that they must fight or face destruction. These include Syria, Iran, Russia, and China among others. Ordinary people in those nations have seen the misery of the Libyans and the Iraqi’s and they would rather die than accept a similar fate.
Like the Turks, they are forced to fight because of failed foreign interventions that do not reflect the will of the people of the United States.
The American deep state has created tens of millions of enemies for the United States, and Hillary Clinton is their hand-picked choice for President.
Stephen A. Molling is a veteran of the United States Navy and the author of The Uragon Protocol, a description of a future conflict between Russia and the United States.

3 Corporations That Manufacture BPA

bpaBy Brandon Turbeville
Ever wonder who actually makes the BPA that lines plastic water bottles, and virtually every other consumable product packaging in the United States?
While the list is undoubtedly longer, we know of at least three major companies that produce and sell the gender-bending chemical known as bisphenol-A.
Unsurprisingly, the number one chemical producer in the United States – Dow Chemical – is one manufacturer. In addition, and also unsurprisingly, Bayer AG via its subsidiary, Bayer Polymers, is also a major producer.
With the recent merger between Bayer and Monsanto, however, Dow may be unseated as the top chemical maker, as Bayer/Monsanto seek to coat the world in pesticides, herbicides, and toxic plastic chemicals.
Hexion Specialty Chemicals is also a producer of BPA with its product being found in Deer Park Water bottles.
As Heather Callaghan writes,
Bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical found in most plastics, cans, and other types of food and drink packaging is already linked to obesity, infertility and reproductive disorders in both genders, breast cancer, behavioral problems, and more. […]
The journal of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences published the study led by Dr. Wolfgang Leidtke finding that BPA could “suppress genes that are critical to early development of the central nervous system, which may predispose both animals and humans to neurodevelopmental disorders.”
Despite a growing consumer-based movement to eliminate BPA from food packaging and other consumer products, as well as the growing science demonstrating the toxicity of BPA even at lower levels than previously thought, the FDA that has approved the substance as safe for use in corporate America, is largely refusing to budge.
Those who understand the effects that BPA has on human biology might do some more digging to understand why the chemical is being made so ubiquitous in our environment.

In Effort To Save Saudi Arabia From The Houthis, Has The U.S. Created Another Gulf Of Tonkin?

uss-mason-takes-part-in-live-fire-exercisesBy Brandon Turbeville
No longer content to lead from behind with the occasional drone bomb, the United States has now resorted to launching missiles from vessels off the Yemeni coast into the embattled nation. Having launched attacks at several Houthi “command and control” centers allegedly housing radar, the U.S. is once again only entrenching its position as a great force for evil and destruction the world over.
Per usual, the U.S. justification for the attack is questionable at best, and, in the end, an example of just how arrogant and aggressive U.S. foreign policy is toward the rest of the world and, in particular, those nations and forces who do not capitulate to U.S. interests.
According to mainstream press reports and the U.S. government itself, the United States responded to alleged missiles being fired from Houthi-occupied territory at the U.S. Destroyer U.S.S. Mason. After four alleged missiles being fired in two alleged separate incidents, the U.S. ship, which was operating off the coast of Yemen, fired missiles at the Houthi radar locations.
The Western press has, of course, responded in a predictable fashion by rushing to point out that the U.S. position was entirely justified and was nothing more than retaliation at unprovoked threats produced by the “Iranian proxies” fighting against the democratic kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s invasion of Yemeni territory.
“For the United States, it was simple retaliation: Rebels in Yemen had fired missiles at an American warship twice in four days, and so the United States hit back, destroying rebel radar facilities with missiles,” reads a report in the New York Times. But the framing of the incident assumes that the Houthis actually fired the missiles and that the U.S. merely acted in self-defense and retaliation. It also assumes that the U.S. was justified for having its ships off the coast of Yemen to begin with.
For their part, the Houthi forces have denied firing any missiles at U.S. ships.
Interestingly enough, the United States itself admits that the Houthis may not have fired the missiles. In fact, they admit that they do not even know for sure who fired the missiles. Pentagon Spokesman Peter Cook actually stated, “We don’t know who was pulling the trigger specifically,” stopping short of actually blaming the Houthis for the record. But nevertheless, the U.S. “retaliated” against them.
Take a look at the logic being presented by the Pentagon here. “Missiles were fired presumably at our ship. We do not know who fired them. Therefore, we attacked the Houthis.” Is it now considered prudent military and international policy to bomb forces for an act no one is actually sure they committed?
With all this in mind and given the track record of the United States government ginning up “attacks” in order to justify foreign military adventures, it would be wise to question the nature and even the existence of the “missile attacks” to begin with, not only who actually fired the missiles. Indeed, it was in 1964 that the U.S. government claimed North Vietnamese forces fired torpedoes and machine guns at the U.S.S. Maddox which subsequently resulted in large-scale involvement of the United States in Vietnam. Decades later, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident has largely been proven as nothing more than a fabrication of the U.S. government in order to justify war in Vietnam.
“For the United States to employ direct military force against an albeit conflict-embroiled sovereign nation over an incident still under investigation and as-yet unproven indisputable fact, is reminiscent of the vehicle it undertook to embroil itself in the Vietnam War — the Gulf of Tonkin incident,” writes Claire Bernish.
“However, in this case,” she continues, “the move could prove an arrogant flub of enormous proportions. Yemen, itself, is not of imperative importance to the U.S. except outside the waters off its coast — however, as a proxy ally of Russia its regional consequence matters a great deal.”
It is also important to consider the timing of the alleged attack. The United States has acted in direct support of Saudi Arabia’s heinous crimes in Yemen from the beginning by “leading from behind” through providing intelligence, strategic advice, refueling, and other logistical assistance. While the U.S. whines incessantly about “barrel bombs” being dropped on terrorists, Saudi Arabia is intentionally dropping bombs on civilians all over Yemen yet not one word has been uttered in condemnation by the U.S.
Still, after the Saudis bombed a Yemeni funeral, killing at least 100 people, even some mainstream press organizations (mostly due to the fact that the independent press has revealed the nature of the Saudi mission in Yemen) were no longer able to hide the Saudi crimes against humanity. As a result, even the United Nations which had been paid by the Saudis to keep silent on previous Saudi war crimes was forced to issue a statement of condemnation.
Amidst the discussion of the Saudi crimes, the U.S. support for Saudi actions has become an issue that is no longer so easily ignored by Washington with many “human rights organizations” and national governments criticizing the Obama administration for its cooperation and assistance in slaughtering the Yemeni people.
Thus, just as the United States’ complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity begins to gather attention on the global stage, the Houthis inexplicably launch missiles at a U.S. warship.
As Global Research writes,
You might consider it strange that the Houthis, who have not fired on American ships ever before in the nearly 2 years of warfare in Yemen, suddenly decided – just as American support for Saudi Arabia was in question – to launch missiles at an American destroyer.
You might be asking yourself, “Why would the Houthis, who struggle to get any coverage in the Western press at all, let alone sympathetic coverage, launch an attack on America?”
You might consider it strange that the Houthis, already fighting a losing battle against a richer and better equipped enemy, might try and drag America into the war.
It’s not strange. Not in the least. It fits so well with the history of American military entanglements that one might even call it predictable, at this point.
It is also noteworthy to mention the fact that the U.S. attack is coming as the Saudis become revealed for being the paper tiger that they truly are. After all, not only has Saudi Arabia failed to defeat the Houthis, but the Houthis have now managed to penetrate at least 10kms in to Saudi territory.
The United States is standing on the precipice of yet another direct military invasion of yet another sovereign country that will surely end in a quagmire. We strongly urge the U.S. government to abandon its meddling in Yemen. At the very least, we invite those members of the “Saudi-led coalition” to remember that Yemen has been a quagmire for every empire that has tried to conquer it.
