Seven years into a counteroffensive against a campaign of terror that claimed the lives of 15,000 people and caused the displacement of about 2 million more in Nigeria and neighboring Chad, Niger and Cameroon, Nigeria’s army declared just four days ago that it had freed more than 5,000 people held hostage by the terrorist group Boko Haram in raids on 15 villages. The militant Islamist group, claiming affiliation with ISIS, riled the country and the world two years ago when it kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok in Borno state; the search continues for them.
Hillary Clinton, secretary of state when Boko Haram emerged as Africa’s ISIS affiliate, repeatedly refused to designate the militants as terrorists—even at congressional urging and pleas from African leaders, including the Nigerian president, for support in combating terrorism. Meanwhile, Boko Haram was able to escalate its terror campaign and atrocities.
Mindy Belz, senior editor of WORLD Magazine, discusses Clinton’s “troubling ties” to Nigerian big money, the role of the Clinton Foundation and former President Bill Clinton, and their connection to her inaction on Boko Haram.

Andrew Thibault of Parents against Pharmaceutical Abuse provides stunning data on psychiatric drug-induced fatalities and homicides based on his highly sophisticated analyses of millions of reports to the FDA. Learn how 280 stimulant drug death reports for children may reflect 28,000 actual fatalities over ten years. Learn how 700 reported cases of homicide for all psychiatric drugs in all ages may reflect multiples more actual murders over the decade. I took notes like a student listening to Andrew.
Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor whose digging into the financials of General Electric in 2007-2008 revealed that the conglomerate had fraudulently overvalued its stock by hundreds of billions of dollars.
Since February last year, Ortel has been looking closely at the finances and operations of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Foundation. In a five-part series on Leid Stories, he detailed his stunning findings that the foundation is engaging in “massive fraud” through highly questionable, and downright illegal, practices that purport to be in line with the foundation’s philanthropic work but really are designed to enrich the Clintons.
With the same zeal he pursued GE and exposed its financial crimes, Ortel is untangling the global labyrinth within which the foundation functions and how it has managed to evade the law as a renegade “charitable” institution.
Today Ortel reveals the foundation’s shady operations involving hundreds of millions of dollars solicited and received from foreign governments—ostensibly to support HIV/AIDS programs in the developing world—but have yet to be accounted for.

Although stocks bounced back on "Turnaround Tuesday" on the belief that contagion has been contained following the rout that wiped out $3.6 trillion from equity markets following Great Britain's referendum last Thursday to "Brexit" the European Union... we disagree. It's bigger than Brexit. Despite many of the world's largest hedge funds betting billions on a "Remain" victory and British bookies putting the chances of "Leave" at barely 10 percent, in our June 15 Trend Alert, we wrote, "Should the 'Leave' vote win, we forecast the US dollar and gold prices will spike while equity markets, particularly those currently under downward pressure, will sink deeply lower." Since then, gold hit two-year highs, the British pound fell to 31-year lows and currencies around the world hit new lows against the US dollar - or tested old ones - as investors sought safe-haven assets such as the dollar and Japanese yen.
The criticism in the "investor" world has long been that gold yields no interest. However, as interest rates around the world keep trending lower and holding cash yields nothing, in a climate of ongoing market volatility, for many, holding gold is considered the ultimate safe-haven commodity.
