Leid Stories—Twisted Philanthropy: How the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation Made Billions Mining the World’s Misery Index—08.18.16

Since May, Ortel has been spelling out in great detail how a project chartered initially to build a presidential library and research facility in Arkansas, President Clinton’s home state, illegally was morphed into a global pseudo-philanthropic conglomerate that raked in billions of dollars, ostensibly to support the foundation’s “charity” work. But Ortel says the evidence clearly shows the foundation was operating almost all of its projects illegally, and many major “donations” it received were from foreign governments and well-placed corporations seeking political favors from the Clintons.

William J. Astore – Military Dissent Is Not an Oxymoron

The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gains continue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and …

Mark A. Kastel – Most ‘Organic’ Eggs You Buy Are Far From Organic

There’s a growing divide in organic food and agriculture.

Focus on the Facts – 07.25.16

The first guest today was Jason Leopold, an investigative reporter who has covered Guantanamo Bay, national security, human rights, open government, and civil liberties. He is called a “FOIA Terrorist” by federal employees for his aggressive use of the Freedom of Information Act. In the latest response to a FOIA request, the US State Department revealed that Hillary Clinton exchanged nearly two-dozen top secret emails from her unsecured, private server with three senior aides while she was Secretary of State. The second guest was David Shurter, a Satanic Ritual Abuse Survivor who was tortured in the MK Ultra program until the age of 10. David became involved with the key players in the Franklin Credit Union Scandal in Omaha in the 1980s because the players were his parent’s friends. The scandal involved a network of pedophile rings in Nebraska and Washington DC, that traded young children to politicians and other wealthy people in the US for sexual abuse, human trafficking, drug trafficking and blackmail.

Paul Craig Roberts – How The American Neoconservatives Destroyed Mankind’s Hopes For Peace

When Ronald Reagan turned his back on the neoconservatives, fired them, and had some of them prosecuted, his administration was free of their evil influence, and President Reagan negotiated the end of the Cold War with Soviet President Gorbachev. The military/security complex, the CIA, and the neocons were very much against ending the Cold War as their budgets, power, and …

President Obama on Islam, Terrorism, Race and the American Way
In a highly publicized speech he delivered yesterday at the Islamic Society of Baltimore—his first visit to a U.S. mosque as head of state—President Barack Obama ostensibly was playing the role of Domestic Peacemaker in Chief, calling for religious tolerance and a rekindling of the Jeffersonian/Founding Fathers’ commitment to religious freedom for all Americans.
Lawdy, Lawdy, so wrong in so many ways, says Leid Stories of Obama’s speech.
