    Inquisitr ^ | June 19, 2016 | Reno Berkeley
    WikiLeaks has issued an encrypted file for download as a kind of ďtorrent insuranceĒ ahead of its public release of potentially damning documents. As previously discussed on Inquisitr, Guccifer 2.0ís hack of the DNC servers have already revealed possible collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign, the mainstream media, and Democratic Party leadership. While the DNC has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of these preliminary releases, WikiLeaksís torrent insurance prior to the actual document dump could indicate the presence of damaging evidence on Clinton, and possibly even the Obama administration. Famed government whistleblower Edward Snowden tweeted out a message regarding...

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is not generally thought of as a friend of Republicans. But what he says is coming soon from his whistleblowing group could endear him to the GOP. Assange claims his "upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton" are enough to indict her, according to a recent interview with British ITV News. "We've accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton. We could proceed to an indictment," he said. These emails are "pending publication." But no matter how damaging the emails are, Assange believes the FBI will give Clinton a pass. Rather than bring criminal charges, it...

    A lone hacker, referring to himself as Guccifer 2.0, is claiming responsibility for hacking into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers.† While the DNC confirmed Tuesday its servers had indeed been breached, they and cyber security firm CrowdStrike indicated the Russian government was the likely†culprit. The declaration by CrowdStrike, who is used to maintain the security of government servers, seems to have spurred the hacker known only as Guccifer 2.0 to reveal via the website Guccifer2.wordpress.com, that he/she was the source of the hack and not the Russians. In a blog post dated June 15th, Guccifer 2.0 states: Iím very...

    One of the bigger news items to hit yesterday was that the Democratic National Committee accused Russian government hackers of penetrating the DNC's computer network and gaining access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. The DNC further said that no financial, donor or personal information appears to have been accessed or taken, suggesting that the breach was traditional espionage, not the work of criminal hackers. It appears that was not entirely true, because barely 24 hours later, the alleged "Russian" hackers has emerged under the Guccifer2 handle, and instead of a group of...

    Pentagon predicted Libya outcome - she 'overrode' them...But Loretta Lynch will probably protect her.... One of the interesting things about Julian Assange is that, love him or hate him; heís a guy who never seems to bluff. If he says something is coming, it usually does. The world may pounce on it, or choose to ignore it, but he almost always follows through on his threats/promises. So, if youíre Hillary Clinton, his recent ITV interview must be unnerving. In it, Assange promises that Wikileaks has more of Hillaryís emails ready to go, and that the new info would add to...

    The Guardian ^ | 6-12-16 | Mark Tran
    Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has said his organisation is preparing to publish more emails Hillary Clinton sent and received while US secretary of state. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is under FBI investigation to determine whether she broke federal law by using her private email in sending classified information. A new WikiLeaks release of Clinton emails is likely to fan a controversy that has bedevilled her campaign and provide further ammunition for Donald Trump, her Republican presidential rival, who has used the issue to attack her.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee wants to restrict immigration while bringing back manufacturing.

    The US has raised its import duties on Chinese steelmakers by more than five-fold after accusing them of selling their products below market prices. The taxes specifically apply to Chinese-made cold-rolled flat steel, which is used in car manufacturing, shipping containers and construction. The US Commerce Department ruling comes amid heightened trade tensions between the two sides over several products, including chicken parts. Steel is an especially sensitive issue. US and European steel producers claim China is distorting the global market and undercutting them by dumping its excess supply abroad.

Minimum wage, regulations, unions, and high taxes are THE CAUSE of businesses moving elsewhere. Federal government is the problem NOT the solution.

Tariffs have the appearance but not the reality of a solution - they are only palliative and delay the actual reforms needed. A tariff is a tax and China...

Even if no humans were involved, however, the algorithm would not have been completely neutral because it was written by humans, digital media analysts say.

    The members of the #NeverTrump movement cite, in part, Donald Trumpís position on trade as a reason why they cannot support their partyís presumptive nominee, chosen by Republican voters. They argue that Trumpís position on trade represents a betrayal of the Ronald Reagan legacy that defines virtually all thinking and rhetoric among the professional conservative class in Washington, D.C. However, there is one significant problem with this line of attack: namely, Reaganís record on trade far more closely resembles Trumpís position than it resembles the view of those in the #NeverTrump movement. In fact, by their own definition, Reagan would...

And even in circles within Merkel's cabinet, the belief that TTIP will ever become a reality in its currently planned form is disappearing. That's because on Monday morning, Greenpeace published classified documents from the closed-door negotiations....

    It wonít help the economy, it wonít stop China, and it will harm certain U.S. industries. President Obamaís top 2016 legislative priority is passage of his legacy-building ďfree-tradeĒ deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But the American public is highly skeptical of TPP and its alleged beneficial economic effects. The public has it right. The problems with the deal are legion. Here are a few great reasons to oppose the deal: TPP does not include provisions prohibiting currency manipulation or enforceable penalties for doing so. Currency manipulation has cost the U.S. thousands of factories and millions of jobs over the last...

    In recent years the U.S. has been steadily traversing down a path of destruction. While many Americans have begun to open their eyes to Americaís plight, most are still oblivious to the factors that led to our downfall. Recently, the media has been touting recovery, but there are numerous urgent changes that need to be implemented before the U.S. can even think that we are emerging from todayís recession/depression. The New Depression The economic decline in the United States began long before the official beginning of the recession in December 2007. The U.S. is not merely experiencing a ďdown cycle.Ē...

    Club for Growth released its latest attack ad against Donald Trump. The ad titled ďMathĒ is running in Wisconsin. In the ad Club for Growth posts a chart showing the candidateís delegate count. Then Club for Growth adds Cruz and Kasichís delegates to show (on a chart) Cruz beating Trump. But the ad doesnít add up. 463 + 143 = 608 which is significantly less than 739.

    Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz pledges to ďstand up for fair tradeĒ in a new state-wide Wisconsin ad hitting on international trade deals, a signature issue of frontrunner Donald Trumpís campaign. ďFree tradeĒ is generally seen as a globalist policy in which restrictions on imports and exports are kept to an absolute minimum. ďFair traders,Ē on the other hand, argue that purely free trade can have negative consequences for the citizens of a particular country, especially when it comes to wages and employment opportunities for the lower and middle classes. They recommend that sovereign nations negotiate and implement trade deals...
  • D.C. Madam's Attorney Says Election Bombshell Already Online

    The colorful litigator who represented the late ďD.C. madamĒ Deborah Palfrey and threatened this week to release his former client's call logs that he says are ďvery relevantĒ to the 2016 presidential election tells U.S. News those records already are digitized and posted online. Montgomery Blair Sibley says the records will become public if he fails to reset a 72-hour countdown clock, which could cut short his soft two-week ultimatum for federal courts to consider lifting a 2007 gag order that covers the records, lest he deem that order void. The countdown clock is a safeguard, Sibley says, that ensures...

    The overload factor may be high, but the answer to my title-question is all of the above and more. 1) "More" includes Jeb Bush's endorsement of Ted Cruz this week, making official the merger between Bush, Inc. and the Cruz campaign, which began when the core of the Jeb Bush campaign finance committee, including the tainted Neil Bush (also globalist Boyden Gray) moved over to Team Cruz. Cruz supporters, from Rush Limbaugh (undeclared) to Kellyanne Conway, explain this as proof of how "True Conservative" Cruz has co-opted GOPe. I don't think so. If that were so, why, as the Texas...

    Free Trade: Theory vs. Practice Economics textbooks by authors of various political persuasions all seem to agree that "free trade" is mostly a win-win no-brainer. And yet, in practice, it seems like free trade may be wiping out the middle class. What is going wrong here? The textbooks explain that when a country engages in free trade, several things happen: There are winners and losers. The losers need to retrain and/or lower their expectations. What the winners win is more than what the losers lose. What people lose when their wages are depressed by globalizing the labor market is more...

    Most significantly, the TPP does not address a massive cost to U.S. goods and services that has a chokehold on our export levels: foreign Value-Added Tax (VAT) schemes.
