    Those who have been toying with outright war against Russia, and an escalation of the conflict in Syria, are putting the lives of all Americans at risk. Of course, the threat of nuclear annihilation has been with us since the earliest days of the Cold War, but Russia has now positioned itself with the largest and most destructive nuclear arsenal of any country in the world.

She’s been accused during sworn testimony of disrespecting security agents and putting them in danger. She abaonded her “friend” Ambassador Chris Stevens and left him to the Islamists who slaughtered him in Benghazi. Tonight during the final presidential debate Hillary Clinton leaked more national security secrets. Hillary said it took four minutes between the nuclear order and nukes flying.

    A senior State Department official sought to shield Hillary Clinton last year by pressuring the FBI to drop its insistence that an email on the private server she used while secretary of state contained classified information, according to records of interviews with FBI officials released on Monday. The accusation against Patrick Kennedy, the State Department's most senior manager, appears in the latest release of interview summaries from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's year-long investigation into Clinton's sending and receiving classified government secrets via her unauthorized server. Although the FBI decided against declassifying the email's contents, the claim of interference added...

So my questions are these: 1.a. Are Hitlery and all those who were involved in this deception so incredibly stupid that they really thought the server they set up so amateurishly would be secure? 1. b. Are Hitlery's minions so intimidated by her that they would do something this stupid without explaining to her or convincing her of the pitfalls?...

In his final days as a U.S. senator before retiring, Bond marched repeatedly to the Senate floor to deliver policy addresses on matters ranging from energy to national security to global trade. He even made a speech entitled "Rare Earth," a lesson on the strategic value of metallic elements in Missouri's soil. He recently introduced a bill to spend $50 million to secure a rare earth supply chain — even though he won't be in the Senate to shepherd it.

The implications of this move range from control by an international bureaucracy to totalitarian regimes locking up entire portions of the Internet, according to experts. At issue is US control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). “ICANN is arguably the single most powerful institution in the world as it relates to the global economy and communication. It has oversight authority over 300 million domain names, which number is increasing every day”, states Internet pioneer, Jeff Baron.

But the most telling issue is Hillary’s direct run-in with national security. This article shines a bright light on why Colin Powell said: “Don’t Pin It On Me!” Safeguard Failures Handling Classified Information Agency Heads by law have the critical responsibility to safeguard classified information. President Obama made this crystal clear in his Executive Order 13526 (12/29/09). It is quite apparent that HRC did not have adequate safeguards in place for classified...

    VIDEO – Bill Clinton: Rebuild Detroit with Syrian Refugees Julia Hahn 29 Aug 2016 Washington D.C.340 In a previously little-noticed video from February at the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton suggested that the U.S. use Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit. “The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis. Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the...

    GOP nominee Donald Trump is poised to receive his first classified intelligence briefing in New York City on Wednesday. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence will give Trump a "fairly general" report, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.   Retired Gen. Michael Hayden emphasized this latter point, noting the secret meetings will be "secret-light." Many have voiced their concerns about Trump having knowledge of important national security intel, especially after he invited Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails. the words "Trump" and "classified intelligence briefing" are so hard to write in the same tweet.— Edward Luce (@EdwardGLuce) August 17, 2016 Others pointed out that...

    Crazy Uncle Joe Strikes Again… Hillary Clinton took Joe Biden with her on the campaign trail today after a weekend of rest. Biden took to the stage to bash businessman Donald Trump. Then he gave away the Secret Service agent who was holding the nuclear codes. "Donald Trump… He cannot be trusted. There’s a guy that follows me, has the nuclear codes. So, God forbid anything happen to the president and I had to make a decision the codes are with me… He is not qualified." What an complete idiot.

    Introductory remarks by Rudy Giuliani and Mike Pence, who speak about the ways they know each other well and why they admire each other, as well as having confidence in Donald Trump. This is an appearance that was not interrupted by protesters. An enthusiastic audience applauds and chants appreciatively. Mr. Trump speaks presidentially from prepared notes, but does not hold back. As Mike Pence said in his opening, "You will hear today a broad-shouldered vision to confront our enemies, restore our security and once again have America command the respect of the world."

    Good morning, I’m still reporting on TPP. According an interview with Julian Assange done by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, less than 14% of the text of the TPP has been released to the public. Twenty-five of its 29 chapters are still secret. According to Assange: “Once we’re in, we’re stuck forever.” Goodman interviewed Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on Monday and published the interview yesterday over the Pacifica network on their daily news show, Democracy Now at This is simply outrageous! I just don’t know how to describe this in non-conspiratorial terms. We stand on the...
