Gowdy to Obama: No Hillary Clinton Benghazi documents, then no 2016 funding

The Obama White House on Wednesday slammed GOP lawmakers in the House of Representatives for their threats on Tuesday to delay funding for the scandal-ridden State Department. The lawmakers said they would take the action as a way to force the Secretary of State John Kerry's cooperation with their Benghazi select committee's investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012 Islamist attacks in Libya, according to several reports.

Adelson’s Anti-BDS Event Links Money To Action

The “secret” Vegas weekend focused on planning for, and funding, a campaign to kill BDS in its academic cradle.

With U.S. billionaires both funding and setting up its top down strategy with Israeli-inspired organizations on American campuses, Israel’s successful invasion of U.S. institutions takes another major step toward “occupying” American institutions.

Four days after the Salon posting appeared, The New York Times buried two paragraphs about the Vegas event inside a longer story which featured the success Israel was enjoying in gaining anti-BDS support in state legislatures in South Carolina and Illinois.

This campaign against American supporters of Palestinian freedom, was prompted by the alarmed awareness among Israeli leaders, and their U.S. allies, that the BDS movement is rapidly gaining ground.

A Rapprochement Or Just Wishful Thinking?

Iranian people have no problem with a rapprochement with the United States...…?Iran could prove to be a powerful strategic partner to the United States, as long as its independence and regional influence are not threatened.

While Mr. Obama had, realistically speaking, no better alternative in choosing the timing for his administration’s foreign policy reorientation, a meaningful follow-through to implement his vision after his term in office expires would need a new Chief Executive with similar convictions; and, as things appear now, that prospect seems somewhat in doubt.

The current jockeying by potential candidates for the 2016 presidential elections is a perfect example of how true national interests are sacrificed for the sake of personal gains.

House clears first trade bill, setting stage for Friday showdown

The House cleared the first piece of the complex package of trade bills Thursday, easily approving preferences for Haiti and African countries in a move President Obama and GOP leaders hoped would pave the way for the bigger votes later this week.

Optimism abounded among free-trade supporters — though House Speaker John A. Boehner wouldn’t declare victory ahead of a Friday showdown, saying only that Republicans will provide enough support but that it’s up to Mr. Obama to deliver dozens of his own party members.

Furthering a Failed Strategy, Obama to Send More Ground Troops to Iraq

In a move anti-war critics and foreign policy experts are certain to call simply an extension of a policy that has proved a failure, the New York Times reports the Obama administration is planning to build a new military base in the western part of Iraq and send additional ground troops in an attempt to turn the tide against Islamic State (ISIS) forces who have continued to take and hold ground on sides of the Syrian border in recent weeks.

US attempt to ‘lecture the Pope’ before Putin meeting a ‘big responsibility’ to take – Kremlin

During their conversation, Pope Francis and Vladimir Putin touched on the issue of Ukraine, the Russian president’s spokesman said, noting that US advice on what concerns should be raised, was an attack on sovereignty and an attempt to lecture the Pope.

Just hours before the meeting between visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin and His Holiness Pope Francis, the US ambassador to the Holy See Kenneth Hackett encouraged the pontiff to take a tougher stance against Vladimir Putin. In particular, Hackett said the Vatican “could say more about concerns on territorial integrity”.

German Banker: Obama Is Destroying Europe

Interviewed on June 6th by German Economic News, the chief economist at Bremer Landesbank, Folker Hellmeyer, says that because of Obama’s sanctions against Russia, German exports declined year-over-year by 18% in 2014, and by 34% in the first two months of 2015 (no later figures), but he asserts that “The damage is much more comprehensive than these statistics show,” because those are only the “primary losses,” and there are in addition “secondary effects,” which get even worse over time.

Iraq is Obama’s quagmire now: His unauthorized war hasn’t worked — but he’s escalating it anyway

The Obama administration’s war on the Islamic State is quickly approaching its first birthday, and things don’t seem to be going especially well. The strategy President Obama laid out back in September had two key components for taking on ISIS militarily: The U.S. would provide air power and conduct “a systematic campaign of airstrikes,” and the Iraqi military (with “training” and “support” from U.S. military personnel) would “go on offense” against the terrorist state’s forces.

Obama’s secret TPP ‘trade assistance’ rider includes $700 million in proposed cuts to Medicare –Unions, Seniors Groups Urge Congress Not to Cut Medicare to Fund Trade Assistance

An already difficult road for the Trans-Pacific Partnership in the House of Representatives got bumpier on Monday, as controversial Medicare cuts were brought into the mix. Labor unions and senior citizens’ groups are launching efforts to lobby House members against a bill that includes $700 million in proposed cuts to Medicare reimbursements for doctors and hospitals. The cuts would be used to fund a $2.5 billion extension of Trade Adjustment Assistance funding, which aids workers who lose their jobs as a result of trade [sic] deals.

BILDERBERG GROUP’S TRANSHUMANIST CORPORATE COMMUNISM

The elusive, secretive Bilderberger Group is set to meet this week in Watford, England with plans to reportedly hand the “baton” of leadership on to Google. I recall back in 1999 first reading about the Bilderberg Group on an obscure conspiracy site now long gone. At that time, if you mentioned the Bilderberg Group or other leftist elite combines, you were considered insane. Indeed, even a few years ago, major news and so-called “conservative” news refused to mention Bilderberg, with neo-con talkmongers cowering to what they falsely consider capitalism. While it may be considered a good sign that Bilderberg is now appearing in mainstream news due to sites like Drudge and Infowars forcing the elite entity into public view, Bilderberg is still able to hide behind a mask of so-called capitalism.

American Treachery in the Attack on the USS Liberty Much Deeper Than Previously Assumed

It has long been assumed that Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty was just another of her made-to-order false flag operations done simply for the purpose of dragging an unwilling America into a Middle East war on the side of the Jewish state. However, new information uncovered by former BBC investigative journalist Peter Hounam reveals that America–and more specifically the administration of Lyndon Johnson–was not as much the unsuspecting victim in all of this that she has claimed these last 40 years. Based on relatively new evidence, the attack on the Liberty was actually part of a much larger plan and that the Liberty incident was just one domino in a series of them that had as the ultimate goal a real-live shooting war between the US and the USSR.

Hillary's plans to stuff the ballot box

Since Hillary won’t have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his unlikely double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people who didn’t vote for Obama. That’s the gist of her speech in Houston last week, which her friends at MSNBC called a “far-reaching vision for expanding access to the ballot box.”

Who are the new voters to whom Hillary wants to give “access to the ballot box”? They include felons and non-citizens, along with anyone who can’t prove identity, citizenship, or residence within the voting precinct.

She also plans to harvest millions of new votes by expanding the dangerous practices of same-day registration and early voting, which enable Democrats to badger, berate, bribe, or bamboozle reluctant low-information voters to the polls. Democratic Party and union workers can identify reluctant voters and harass them until the party worker verifies that they have actually cast their ballot.

3 Hours and 47 Minutes After Obama Says He’ll Sign Law BANNING Bulk Collection, DOJ Asks Secret Court to CONTINUE Bulk Collection

The Obama administration has asked a secret surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months.

The legal request, filed nearly four hours after Barack Obama vowed to sign a new law banning precisely the bulk collection he asks the secret court to approve, also suggests that the administration may not necessarily comply with any potential court order demanding that the collection stop.

Obama says Supreme Court should never have taken up health law case, in blunt challenge

President Obama bluntly challenged the Supreme Court over a pending ruling on the validity of ObamaCare subsidies, complaining Monday that the court should never have taken up the case -- and warning that a ruling against subsidies would be a "twisted interpretation" of the law.

The president and his administration's legal team for months have fought the Affordable Care Act court challenge, which is over whether people who enrolled through the federal HealthCare.gov are entitled to subsidies.

But the president's comments on Monday, during a press conference on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in Germany, were perhaps his toughest to date. He strongly suggested the court would be running afoul of established legal guidance if it rules against the administration, and took the rare step of saying the court should have stayed out of this fight.

The assault on the Liberty is well documented. With no warning, the Liberty was attacked by successive waves of unmarked jets using cannon, rockets and napalm. The attacking jets jammed all of the US communications frequencies, an indication they knew the Liberty was an American ship.

The air attack failed to sink the Liberty. About 30 minutes into the attack three torpedo boats appeared flying the Star of David. The Israeli boats were not on a rescue mission. They attacked the Liberty with cannon, machine guns and torpedoes. One torpedo struck the Liberty mid-ship, instantly killing 25 Americans while flooding the lower decks. The Israeli torpedo boats destroyed the life rafts the Liberty launched when the crew prepared to abandon ship, sending the message there’d be no survivors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which is bogus since it is Kiev that has openly violated the cease fire! Obama's speech (still ongoing) also touched on FIFA! As if that was a world-changing event. Obama has stated Europe's commitment to end fossil fuel use without providing a safe and reliable alternative or explaining why the US is still trying to conquer and control the world's oil-producing regions. And of course he tossed global warming and why it is okay for him to amnesty the illegals without Congress into the mix as well!

In short, there is an obvious disconnect between what Obama is saying at the G7 and what is really going on.

More evidence cited in RICO case against Clintons

In a supplement to his recent motion to the court to have the unit seized, attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch notes that there is new relevant information to bolster his case.

Klayman submitted copies of a Washington Times report that the Clintons’ foundation “set up a fundraising arm in Sweden that collected $26 million in donations at the same time that country was lobbying Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department to forgo sanctions that threatened its thriving business with Iran.”

Further, another article submitted by Klayman, from the Miami Herald, reported banks were paying huge fees to Bill Clinton for speeches at a delicate time.

“Many of the speeches and donations were made at times when the host banks were under Justice Department scrutiny. … All told, the same 11 banks have paid more than $81 billion – yes, that’s with a B – over the last six years to resolve federal investigations into alleged corruption,” the report said.

Hillary Goes Right for Bush's Gut in Voting Rights Speech

She talked about how Rick Perry had worked to restrict the franchise in Texas, and how Scott Walker had done so in Wisconsin. Then, she said this.

"And in Florida, when Jeb Bush was governor, state officials conducted a deeply flawed purge of voters before the presidential election of 2000."

Obama's ISIS body count another alleged fabrication, say critics

From the same administration that told Americans that al-Qaida was on the run and that war-torn Islamist-run Yemen was an American success story, a new claim is being touted by President Barack Obama's so-called national security team. They are claiming that the American-led coalition has killed 10,000 members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), but are not saying where that extravagant number comes from, according to news reports on Thursday.

Sleepwalking to Another Mideast Disaster

Denied crucial information about Syria, the American people are being led toward the precipice of another Middle East war, guided by neocons and liberal hawks who are set on “regime change” even if that means a likely victory for Sunni terrorists, writes Robert Parry.

Macedonia: Patriots Defeat the “Color Revolution”

We are publishing the exclusive English translation of the interview given by our regular correspondent Andrew Korybko to the Macedonian edition “NetPress” on the threat of Macedonia division, political background of Kumanovo incident and baseless ambitions of the Western-funded opposition leader Zoran Zaev:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Covert overthrow of a nation only works when it stays covert. Now that the world is onto the US games, the tactic is failing.

SHOCKING!! Mainstream Media Tells House Oversight Committee to Begin Jailing Members of Obama Administration

McCraw said that the Obama administration stalls and stalls and the only way to get them to comply with the law is to sue them, which is a waste of taxpayer’s money. It also forces news agencies to incur needless expenses related to that same litigation. He also noted that it meant that an ordinary citizen trying to find out what his country was up to was out of luck unless they were wealthy and could afford to go to court. That is not why the FOIA was passed. It was passed to make it easy for any everyday voter to find out how his government is functioning.

Sharyl Attkisson was also on hand and she , along with Newsweek Finance Editor Leah Goodman, declared that the only way to resolve the problem is through prosecuting employees responsible for withholding the information requested.

On Thursday, US officials said hackers from China had broke into the computer system of the Office of Personnel Management in December (OPM), possibly compromising the personal data of approximately 4 million current and former federal employees.

U.S. quietly starts channeling arms from $1.6 billion fund to Iraq

The United States has quietly started delivering promised arms for Iraqi soldiers from a $1.6 billion fund approved by Congress last year, officials said, following mounting Iraqi frustration over the pace of coalition assistance. The Pentagon said long-awaited equipment from the Iraq Train and Equip Fund (ITEF) started being fielded about two weeks ago and was moving as fast as possible. Officials noted extensive, previous arms transfers under different U.S. authorities.

Sale of Michigan company to China may haunt Clinton

At a campaign stop in New Hampshire last month, Clinton, the leading Democratic candidate for president, decried the sale of A123 Systems — built with millions in government aid — along with those of other new energy firms, to Chinese investors, calling them “unfortunate” and a “serious” problem for high-tech industries in the U.S.

“That does concern me, because a lot of foreign companies, particularly Chinese companies ... are looking to buy American companies,” she said in response to an entrepreneur who mentioned A123’s sale while commenting that venture capital for new energy technology has largely fled overseas.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, in a statement to the Free Press, called Clinton’s remarks “lip service” considering that as the former secretary of state, her department had a “role in signing off on these sales,” including A123’s to Wanxiang in early 2013.

A Government That Ignores Its Own Laws Is NOT a GOVERNMENT!

This missive was written by a little-known liberty organization back in November 2012... it's more relevant today than ever.

It is absolutely true that the Founding Fathers gave us a system of government that should have protected our nation from the excesses of any single president. However, the checks and balances, balance of powers, and other limitations enshrined in the Constitution, have all been ignored by our current government. Those checks and balances disappeared as soon as those in power realized that they could ignore the law and no one would do anything about it...

A government that ignores its own laws is NOT A GOVERNMENT!!!

It’s just a bunch of bullies asserting the power through coercion and threats. Our government now ignores its own laws.

Another Snowden Leak, but Be Honest America, Do You Even Care Anymore???

Another Snowden leak is out.

More government overreach, more trampling on the Constitution, more walking all over our freedoms without a warrant, more 1984 in your face...

The government surveillance apparatus has been turned against the people. The entire system is more about us than some nebulous foreign boogeymen which were used to justify its creation in the first place.

But let's be honest with ourselves for a moment.

I put Snowden's name in the title of this article, so it's frankly surprising anyone is even reading it.

And that's all part of the psyop...

An Economic Reason for the US vs. China Conflict

There are many reasons that the US is pushing on China in the South China Sea. Two articles have been published on Counterpunch in recent weeks exploring “why?” None mention an important economic reason that has, at least in part, motivated the US to go to war and is very much at stake in the growing dispute with China: the value of the dollar.

The dominance of the dollar in world trade is critical to its value and to the US economy. Once the US abandoned the gold standard, it signed firm agreements with Saudi Arabia and all of Middle East OPEC nations that bound them to sell oil in dollars. Because of this agreement the dollar is often referred to as the “petrodollar.” The value of the dollar/petrodollar rests on its being the currency of international trade, not only for oil, but for weapons and food and everything else.
