Accounts, real estate, cars: From more than 3000 suspended judges and prosecutors to the assets are seized. Now warns even opposition leader Kilicdaroglu of a “witch hunt”.
After the failed coup, the Turkish prosecutor wants to seize the personal assets of more than 3000 suspended judges and prosecutors.
Affected are 3049 judges and prosecutors with alleged links to the movement of the preacher Fethullah Gülen, whose arrest had already been arranged, as the state news agency Anadolu reported on Thursday evening.Continue reading »
STUTTGART, Germany — Special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating the theft of guns and other military equipment from a base arms room in Stuttgart, military officials said.
“Several semi-automatic pistols, one small-caliber automatic rifle and a shotgun were among the items taken,” said Chris Grey, a CID spokesman.
The Army did not identify all the items stolen or the unit targeted, citing the active investigation. A possible breach of the base fence is also part of the ongoing probe. Continue reading »
French intelligence services had been sent a picture of priest killer Abdelmalik Petitjean and were warned an attack was imminent four days before the Normandy church attack, it has been revealed.
In yet another shocking security lapse, the 19-year-old was left to kill Father Jacques Hamel, 85, in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray on Tuesday.
His photo had been widely distributed to police stations after the anonymous tip-off ‘from abroad’ on July 22. It was received with a colour photograph of Petitjean, and said he ‘was preparing to take part in an attack on national territory’.
The warning went on: ‘He’s already in France, and is preparing to act alone, or with others.’
Three senior Irish bankers were jailed on Friday for up to three-and-a-half years for conspiring to defraud investors in the most prominent prosecution arising from the 2008 banking crisis that crippled the country’s economy.
The trio will be among the first senior bankers globally to be jailed for their role in the collapse of a bank during the crisis.
The lack of convictions until now has angered Irish taxpayers, who had to stump up 64 billion euros – almost 40 percent of annual economic output – after a property collapse forced the biggest state bank rescue in the euro zone.
“DISHONEST, DECEITFUL AND CORRUPT”
All three were convicted of conspiring together and with others to mislead investors, depositors and lenders by setting up a 7.2-billion-euro circular transaction scheme between March and September 2008 to bolster Anglo’s balance sheet.
In an attempt to curb the ongoing surge of Central American illegal aliens crossing over our southern border, the Obama DHS yesterday announced the dramatic expansion of a 2014 program that puts so-called “refugees” from high-crime regions onto commercial airliners and brings them here directly to live and work. The initial surge, first reported on over the summer of 2014 and involving mostly unaccompanied alien minors (UAM) from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, caused outrage among the American public after apprehended minors began telling border patrol agents they were lured into making the dangerous journey by Obama’s apparent promise of amnesty—Indeed, statistics show the surge starting directly after his 2012 DACA decree which granted self-described “dreamers” deportation deferrals and work permits.

As the Obama Administration continues to shift the focus of the Pentagon to the Pacific regions, the US plans to station long-range bombers in Guam, roughly 2,000 miles from the South China Sea.
For the first time in nearly 10 years, the Air Force will deploy a squadron of long-range B-1 Lancer bombers to Guam, a US territory in Micronesia. The aircraft will be flown from Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota next month, and the air wing will be accompanied by 300 airmen.
“The B-1 units bring a unique perspective and years of repeated combat and operational experience from the Central Command theater to the Pacific,” reads a statement from the US Air Force. Continue reading »
“Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren,” Obama said in a 2006 floor speech that preceded a Senate vote to extend the debt limit. “America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.” – Barack Obama
hat took other presidents more than 200 years to do, Barack Obama has done in one year, and he continues doing it year in, year out.
During the Barack Obama administration, $1.1 trillion dollars has been added every year to the national debt.
This is not exactly the legacy one would expect from a man who, as a senator in 2006 said that “increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.” Continue reading »
In the third cyberattack on Democratic Party-related servers, Reuters reports that the computer network used by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign was hacked. This follows hacks of the DNC and the DCCC (the party’s fund-raising committee) in the past week. Who to blame this time? Well with US intelligence head Jim Clapper having exclaimed that he was “somewhat taken aback by the hyperventilation [blaming Russia]” by Democratic surrogates, we suspect another scapegoat will need to be found.
Most Americans have absolutely no idea, but a very dark philosophy is spreading like wildfire among the global elite. This philosophy is an obsessive belief that humanity has become a cancer that is destroying the earth. There are now large numbers of global leaders that are convinced that the exploding population of the world has become like a virus or a plague, and that it must be combated as such. In fact, it would be very difficult to understate just how obsessed many members of the global elite are with population control. The United Nations puts out position papers about it, universities have entire courses dedicated to it, radical population control advocates have been appointed to some of the highest political positions in the world, and some of the wealthiest people on the planet get together just to talk about it. Those who believe in this philosophy are constantly talking about the need for “increased access” to abortion, contraception and other “family planning” services. But even with all of their efforts, the population of the world is still expanding and those who believe in this population control philosophy are getting nervous. Continue reading »
The central issue in the U.S. Presidential campaign can’t even be discussed in U.S. newsmedia, because America’s media have been almost uniformly complicit all along in hiding from the American public the crucial factual information that’s necessary in order for the public to vote in an intelligent and truthfully informed way about it. No news medium wants to report its own having been complicit in anything; so, the cover-up here just continues; it has a life of its own, even though it’s a life that brings the world closer and closer to a situation which would kill billions of people, as things get increasingly out-of-control the longer this coverup continues. The cycle of virtually uniform lying thus persists, despite the growing danger it produces. This article will need to be lengthy, because the American public have been almost consistently lied-to about so many very important things — things associated with the nation’s central issue — an issue even bigger than terrorism, and than global warming, and than rising economic inequality and corruption, but which is still virtually ignored. This article is thus intended to be ‘Drano’ for a political system that has become clogged by lies just jammed down into it, now backing up and pouring out onto America’s political floor. The overflowing sludge has got to be cleaned up, and discarded. Or else — and very suddenly — it will kill us all.Continue reading »
Adding insult to injury, America’s aging baby boomers, unable to retire from their menial jobs as a result of the Fed’s destrucitve monetary policy which has guaranteed no income on savings, are now also being blamed by researchers for America’s collapsing productivity.
Moments ago, the European Banking Authority published the 2016 bank stress test results, whose purpose – as every other year – is to inspire confidence in Europe’s struggling banks; it differs from a market-based assessment of bank stress – that particular “test” can be seen by observing the stock prices of such giant banks as Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse, both of which recently hit all time lows. As previewed yesterday, Italy’s 3rd largest, and most insolvent bank, Banca Monte di Siena was the worst performer in European regulators’ stress tests, and the only lender to have its capital wiped out in the exam.
The percentage of Americans that own a home has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded. During the second quarter of 2016, the non-seasonally adjusted homeownership rate fell to just 62.9 percent, which was exactly where it was at when the U.S. Census began publishing this measurement back in 1965. This is not what a “recovery” looks like. All throughout the Obama years, the percentage of Americans that own a home has gotten smaller and smaller and smaller. The reason for this, of course, is that the middle class in America is dying. Last year, we learned that middle class Americans now make up a minority of the population for the first time ever. In order to have a high rate of homeownership, you need a thriving middle class, and you can’t have a thriving middle class without good paying middle class jobs. This is why I write about the evisceration of the middle class so extensively, because the U.S. economy is systematically being hollowed out and most Americans don’t understand what is happening.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel (left) rejects criticism of her decision to allow more than a million mostly Muslim migrants to enter Germany last year. “We can manage our historic task… we can do it. … Anxiety and fear cannot guide our political decisions,” she said at a July 28 press conference, adding, “I cannot promise you that we will never have to take in another mass wave of refugees.”
This is the precise reason why career politicians are no longer acceptable. They will never defend the people nor will they ever admit a mistake. All we see is more and more attacks and this one politicians is threatening to destroy the very framework of Europe. We will see more and nations raise borders and if Germany wishes to take in millions, they will have to keep them all for themselves. She is making a decision for all of Europe and this amounts to a completely undemocratic position whereby no citizen of any other member States has any right to object or vote her out of office.
In the week following the attempted coup in Turkey, which killed about 290 people, the municipality announced it intended to set up a cemetery specifically for those involved — people that officials have branded as traitors undeserving of a proper burial. About 24 coup plotters are believed to have been killed that night.
Authorities would “reserve a spot and call it a traitors’ cemetery. Passers-by will curse them,” Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas said in remarks carried by the Dogan News Agency. “May every passer-by curse them and let them not rest in their tombs.”Continue reading »
“When reasoning fails, and benefit withdrawal is sneered at, I’m sorry but the liberal attitudes forced upon us has been a major influence in the behavioural problems of kids. Spare the rod, spoil the child.”
A light bottom smack (with the right intention) can bring small children very fast to their senses.
And if one avoids all the mistakes parents are making these days, especially during the first seven years, then that would be all that is needed in my opinion.
Sadly, children are bombarded with too much information, advertisements, subliminals, frequencies, mind-control, toxic food & water, electrosmog, etc.
Children need clear boundaries to grow roots. This will give them real security. Without boundaries they will not be able to grow wings.
Question: “What does it mean to ‘spare the rod, spoil the child’?”
Answer: The phrase “spare the rod, spoil the child” is a modern-day proverb that means if a parent refuses to discipline an unruly child, that child will grow accustomed to getting his own way. He will become, in the common vernacular, a spoiled brat. The saying comes from Proverbs 13:24, “He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.” The Lord uses discipline to reveal our sin to us. This is also how parents reveal the truth of our need for a Savior to their children. When a child does not feel the consequence of his sin, he will not understand that sin requires punishment. The Lord provides a way to salvation and forgiveness through Jesus, but that means little to those who do not see their sin. Continue reading »
According to Reuters, the FBI is probing a “cyber intrusion” at yet another Democratic organization, this time the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The previously unreported incident at the DCCC, which raises money for Democrats running for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, is said to have been intended to gather information about Democratic donors.
In effect, America has undergone a rolling national LBO since the Gipper’s time in office; so the U.S. economy is now stuck in the ditch because it has leveraged itself to the hilt over the past three decades. The vast majority of Americans are no longer living the dream because Wall Street speculators and Washington politicians alike have led them into a debt-fueled fantasy world that is coming to a dead end.
