FBI probing new Clinton emails

FBI probing new Clinton emails

The FBI is probing new emails related to Hillary Clinton, FBI Director James Comey said in a Friday letter.

“In previous congressional testimony, I referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony,” Comey wrote.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” he added.

“Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony,” Comey concluded.

Stocks turned negative after the report of the new probe. Many analysts have said that markets were pricing in a Clinton victory in November.

Wealth is now debt

Wealth is now debt

27 Shares

153552318Debt has become the currency of the world at this point.

No longer is money the prime driver of individual, national or corporate wealth.

It seems that now that the central banks run the world, and low interest rates are the norm — money is no longer as important as it used to be.

Corporate and sovereign debt are at record levels because there are ways for financial institutions to make money from this debt mountain.

People talk about the $19 trillion U.S. deficit but don’t realize that one single bank — Deutsche Bank — is holding $42 trillion in derivatives. And the thing about those derivatives is they are leveraged plays on the underlying value of the currencies and companies they represent.

They’re not hard assets… they do not indicate or contain the value of anything in reality. They are like Facebook friends compared with real, live friends. They exist, but they aren’t really a reflection of you as a real person.

And this is the danger of a derivatives-driven market and debt-driven society.

Bob Livingston has been saying for years that there is a larger effort at play here to supplant money and replace it with debt for individuals and so allow the state and corporations to reign over the citizenry, since they control all aspects of the currency economy. A recent piece of his really hit the nail on the head. Here’s an excerpt:

“Since U.S. “money” (and the money of the whole world) is bank credit and since bank credit is created by government and commercial banks, then the “national debt” represents bank credit passed or “loaned” upon an unsuspecting public for their real assets and labor.

Translated: Modern money (bank credit) expropriates wealth. In truth then, the huge reported “national debt” is how much wealth the government has stolen from the American people — not how much the government owes.

The “national debt” propaganda covers the fraud that our real assets and real wealth are flowing to the government for exchange ofgovernment-created credit. Just try to get it back!

Yes, indeed, this is witchcraft that reverses our thought processes. And yes, the national debt is an asset to the government, not a liability. Real assets stolen with bank credit are assets to the government, not debt.

Proof: When the local commercial bank “loans” you money (credit) that they create with a bookkeeping entry, this transaction appears on their books as an asset (a deposit) to the bank and a liability (debt) to the borrower who pledged real assets as collateral. Yes, your debt is the bank’s asset. This same system works with the U.S. monetary system.”

This is the system we all now live under — not just Americans, but everyone in the world, First World to Third World.

And it means you want to get out of this cycle as soon as possible. Because the pendulum always swings in both directions and we’re getting close to a point of inflection regarding interest rate manipulation with zero and negative interest.

When it swings the other way you can be prepared by sitting with cash, precious metals and other hard assets. Basically, you have to reverse your thinking in this area as well, and realize that all the stores of value that are ‘worthless’ today, will become increasingly valuable in coming months and years.

For example, recently gold was pushed down — although it’s still up 20 percent for the year — because people are expecting the Fed to raise rates by the end of the year.

But longer term, even if the Fed raises, it won’t be by much and Europe and Japan certainly will not follow suit. Short term gold may be hurt, but long term it will be the dollar that takes the brunt of it and gold will start its rally again.

Truth is the enemy of the state

Truth is the enemy of the state

1.1K Shares

julian assangeThere is a saw that comes from Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” that “the truth will out.” But not if government has its way.

That’s because truth is the enemy of the state. The state, meaning the apparatus of government, is “the system” that controls the American people.

Most people believe they control the political system through elections. Little do they know that the government and the corporate state own and control the state and the people. In other words, the system is rigged, as Donald Trump says. The system must keep this information invisible and it does so through constant conditioning of the public mind.

Now consider what has happened and is happening to Julian Assange. Consider Edward Snowden.

Assange created WikiLeaks in 2006, exposing, among other things, malfeasance in the conduct of Bush the Lesser’s “War on Terror.” Progressive Democrats loved Assange then.

But by 2010, with George W. Bush out of power and Barack Obama continuing old wars and starting new ones, the truths that were being outed by WikiLeaks were hitting too close to home. WikiLeaks got its hands on a treasure trove of State Department and Pentagon emails and documents being dispatched across the globe.

I wrote at the time in “A war on the truth,” that what WikiLeaks was revealing was:

…the result of a secretive, unaccountable and over-powerful government; a perfidious empire that seeks to rule the world by guile, cunning or force, if necessary. And the response by the United States government and by authorities in some of the U.S.’s puppet states — like Great Britain, which arrested Assange, and Sweden, which brought spurious charges of rape against him — demonstrate the length the ruling elites will go to suppress the truth.

Truth is the enemy of a totalitarian regime. Fooling, lying, spying: That is the way of the totalitarian regime. Fooling, lying to and spying on friends and enemies, and even worse, its own citizens.

Just before I wrote that, we now know, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was contemplating various ways to shut WikiLeaks down. During a November meeting, sources say, Clinton suddenly blurted out, “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

According to sources present at the meeting:

The statement drew laughter from the room which quickly died off when the Secretary kept talking in a terse manner, sources said. Clinton said Assange, after all, was a relatively soft target, “walking around” freely and thumbing his nose without any fear of reprisals from the United States. Clinton was upset about Assange’s previous 2010 records releases, divulging secret U.S. documents about the war in Afghanistan in July and the war in Iraq just a month earlier in October, sources said. At that time in 2010, Assange was relatively free and not living cloistered in in the embassy of Ecuador in London. Prior to 2010, Assange focused Wikileaks’ efforts on countries outside the United States but now under Clinton and Obama, Assange was hammering America with an unparalleled third sweeping Wikileaks document dump in five months. Clinton was fuming, sources said, as each State Department cable dispatched during the Obama administration was signed by her.

Clinton and other top administration officials knew the compromising materials warehoused in the CableGate stash would provide critics and foreign enemies with a treasure trove of counterintelligence. Bureaucratic fears about the CableGate release ultimately proved to be well founded by Clinton, her inner circle and her boss in the White House.

Efforts to shut down WikiLeaks included an American intelligence-initiated operation to entrap Assange in a phony rape charge. The U.S. government also pressured PayPal, VISA and MasterCard to shut down donations to WikiLeaks. The Swedish bank handling Assange’s legal defense fund was pressured by the U.S. government to freeze the account. The firm hosting WikiLeaks’ website was pressured to shut the site the down.

Now WikiLeaks is revealing widespread corruption, vote rigging, media manipulation and other damning evidence against the Democrat Party, Hillary Clinton and her minions. WikiLeaks and Assange are prying the lid off the propaganda machine and exposing the corrupt system.

In response, U.S. intelligence (an oxymoron) initiated another effort to entrap Assange in a sex-related scandal; this time by connecting him with a phony “dating site” and alleging he solicited sex with an 8-year-old girl.

John Kerry’s State Department pressured Ecuador to cut off Assange’s internet connection. There is a new move afoot to figure a way to pry him out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and turn him over to U.S. authorities, where he will no doubt disappear into the bowels of indefinite detention.

Only the power of propaganda keeps the people from overthrowing the U.S. government by force. So truth is the enemy of the state and the state will do everything it can to suppress it.

That’s not surprising. What is surprising is the vast number of people on both “sides” of the political spectrum outside of government who see truth seekers and truth disseminators like Assange, Snowden and Bradley Manning as enemies rather than friends of liberty.

Undercover Clinton Operative Just Exposed, Entire Republican Party FURIOUS

BREAKING: Undercover Clinton Operative Just Exposed, Entire Republican Party FURIOUS

 Nixon deletes 30 seconds of a recording

 

Paul Ryan has been running a not-so-secret shadow campaign for Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan have many things in common, such as progressiveness, open borders, amnesty, special interest lobbyists, and global worldviews. None of that coincides with Donald Trump’s “America first” approach, and that is very telling.

In a leaked WikiLeaks email, we see more collusion between Paul Ryan and Hillary Clinton. It has been revealed that the Clinton campaign attempted to list a close relative of Paul Ryan as a potential Supreme Court pick.

There are thousands of Judges that could be selected as potential Supreme Court Justices, ask yourself why Hillary Clinton chose Paul Ryan’s relative. Pay to play? He is Speaker of the House that continues to do absolutely nothing to help Donald Trump and everything to help Hillary Clinton.

As Paul Joseph Watson described it:

She was confirmed without any Republican opposition in the Senate not once, but *twice*. She was confirmed to her current position in 2013 by unanimous consent – that is, without any stated opposition. She was also previously confirmed unanimously to a seat on the U.S. Sentencing Commission (where she became vice chair),” reads the email.

Her family is impressive. She is married to a surgeon and has two young daughters. Her father is a retired lawyer and her mother a retired school principal. Her brother was a police officer (in the unit that was the basis for the television show *The Wire*) and is now a law student, and she is related by marriage to Congressman (and Speaker of the House) Paul Ryan.

0-1-600x511

The timing of everything is truly astonishing, especially given that Paul Ryan indicated earlier this month that he could no longer support or defend Donald Trump for things he said eleven years ago.

It has also been rumored that Paul Ryan was involved in the plan to release the Billy Bush tapes against Donald Trump, which would be another move to help Hillary Clinton in this race and what he has wanted to do this entire time.

Paul Ryan is a liar and has betrayed the people that elected him, but it may appear that the American people are giving him what he deserves. A recent poll released this week indicated that more than two thirds of Republicans trust Donald Trump more than they do Paul Ryan to lead the GOP.

Just consider everything for a moment.

Paul Ryan’s close relative is being touted as a likely Clinton Supreme Court Justice choice, he has openly supported Clinton’s amnesty proposal, he has not supported Trump’s southern border wall proposal, he is allegedly the man that leaked the Billy Bush tapes against Trump, and he has not thrown his full support behind Donald Trump once this entire election cycle.

Every time something bad happens for Trump, Paul Ryan is the first one to criticize him because it gives him another reason to show his undercover support for Hillary Clinton.

At this point, it doesn’t matter whether you’re Democrat, Republican or undecided–but if you’re an American that wants a better future, no corruption, less government meddling with your life, less taxes so you can support your own family, more jobs, higher wages, better education without common core, and a secure country, then you must vote for Donald Trump.

Letter to the editor: Homer Township Fire Department Ballot Question

Homer Township Fire Department Ballot Question

download

Do not be fooled by the Homer Township Firefighters Union to take over the Board of Trustees.  If you want a real eye-opener, just look at all those six figure salaries, not including benefits given to the Fire District employees.  Now the union wants to take over the board so they can hire more people, have more benefits and make more money.  Just keep in mind the firefighters union has the money along with the funds and know how to get their people elected to take over total control of your fire department.  The international firefighters union in Washington DC employs a union boss with $100,000 plus annual expense account and a salary 3 times more than that.  They train Local Union Officials on “How to elect candidates ” that will support higher wages and benefits. The union president David Curtis told the Horizon over the summer that having the Trustees elected by the residents would mean better partnership for the union and trustees.  His words not mine.  Once this happens you as a taxpayer will never have a say in how much you will pay in taxes for your already overpaid fire department.  Any other time if a resident or even a business went out to petition the public to have trustees elected it would be a different story and could be valid. But in this case it is a public sector union thinking they can come out and take over.  Word on the street is that the firefighters union petitioned most of the seniors residential living and the elderly people who reside in their district to secure their 1200 signatures. I can only imagine what these elderly people were told.  At this time I am asking all voters to take a stand and vote NO on the Homer Township Fire Protection District Referendum by sending a clear message to the public sector unions that we still have and will always have a voice in the way things are done in this country.
