State Department Urges US Citizens To Leave Gaza “As Soon As Possible”:

It’s been a busy 24 hours for John Kerry. Between fending off requests for Hillary’s emails, palling it up with Erdogan, and dealing with Afghanistan fallout, The Department of State has just issued a travel alert warning U.S. citizens against all travel to the Gaza Strip and urges those present to depart as soon as possible when border crossings are open. The announcement follows an escalation between Palestinian militants and the Israeli military over the weekend.

The security situation remains complex in Israel and the West Bank, and can change quickly depending on the political environment, recent events, and geographic location. U.S. citizens should exercise caution and remain aware of their surroundings when traveling to areas where there are heightened tensions and security risks. The Government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority both make considerable efforts to police major tourist attractions and ensure security, particularly in areas where foreigners frequently travel. This replaces the Travel Warning issued December 15, 2015.   Continue reading »

Foreign Staff, Dozens Of Students Trapped Inside American University In Afghanistan After Gunmen Storm Campus:

Update 2: Reuters writes that foreign staff and dozens of students were trapped inside the campus of the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul on Wednesday after suspected militants attacked it with explosives and gunfire, a senior government official said.

The interior ministry official said that elite Afghan forces had surrounded the university compound, where shooting lasted for more than an hour after the assault began at around 6.30 p.m. (10:00 a.m. EDT). Witnesses at the scene said gunfire had since stopped, and special forces had made their way into the compound. Continue reading »

Trump Slams Clinton Foundation As “Most Corrupt Enterprise In Political History” After Latest Donor Revelations:

Yesterday’s report that more than half, or at least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or spoke to Hillary Clinton while she led the State Department, donated at least $156 million to her family charity or pledged commitments with at least 16 foreign governments donating as much as $170 million, has become the latest goldmine for Donald Trump and Republicans who finally have a break in the anti-Trump news cycle to pounce on.

“It is now clear that the Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt enterprise in political history,” Trump said in a statement, reiterating a claim he made earlier in the week. “We’ve now learned that a majority of the non-government people she met with as secretary of state gave money to the corrupt Clinton Foundation. … It was wrong then, and it is wrong now — and the foundation must be shut down immediately.”

As CNN reports, Trump kept up the attack while speaking at a rally in Austin, Texas, Tuesday night. “It is impossible to figure out where the Clinton Foundation ends and the State Department begins,” he said, adding, “The specific crimes committed to carry out that enterprise are too numerous to cover in this speech.” Continue reading »

Pentagon Records Account for Less Than Half of U.S. Arms Transfers to Iraq, Afghanistan:

The Pentagon has records for fewer than half of the firearms the United States dispensed to partner forces in Afghanistan and Iraq since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

A compilation of Pentagon contract records related to the proliferation of rifles, pistols, machine guns, and associated attachments and ammunition found that the Pentagon provided more than 1.45 million firearms to security forces in Afghanistan and Iraq over a 14-year span. Those transfers were part of Defense Department small arms contracts totaling $4 billion. The Pentagon issued over $40 billion in total contracts, according to the report. Continue reading »

Barack Obama: The Nobel Peace Prize Winner Who’s Bombed 7 Countries:

U.S. jets are bombing Syria again this month, part of an overall pattern of military expansion during the Obama administration that’s seen military involvement in dozens of conflicts.

WASHINGTON — As the United States renews a bombing campaign against ISIS forces in Syria, it seems like America’s penchant for waging war knows no bounds. During the first seven years of Barack Obama’s presidency, the U.S. bombed seven countries while supporting other destabilizing military actions throughout the Middle East.

Here’s a look at these seven countries and the effects of bombing: Continue reading »

American Jets Scramble against Syrian Aircraft Bombing Kurdish Rebels:

In a move starkly pointing to the risk of all-out war between the major powers in the Middle East, the US military said yesterday that it had scrambled fighter jets Thursday against government bombers inside Syria to protect US Special Forces operating with Kurdish “rebel” militias.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime sent two Su-24 bombers to bomb Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces advancing on government-held positions in the city of Hasakah. The bombers nearly hit US Special Forces troops that are deployed illegally in Syria, embedded in the YPG. US officials tried to contact Syrian government and Russian forces operating in the region, and Russian officials replied that their bombers were not involved. Continue reading »

Obamacare-------


As Predicted, Obamacare Is Absolutely Killing The Middle Class:

The critics of Obamacare have been proven right.  The Obama administration promised that health insurance premiums would go down.  Instead, they have absolutely skyrocketed.  The Obama administration promised that Obamacare would not kill jobs.  Instead, firms are hiring fewer workers because of suffocating health care costs.  As you will see below, even the Federal Reserve is admitting this.  The Obama administration also promised that the big health insurance companies would love the new Obamacare plans and would eagerly compete with one another to win customers in the new health insurance marketplaces.  Instead, many of the big health insurance companies are now dropping Obamacare plans altogether.

We witnessed the latest stunning example of this phenomenon just a few days ago.  It turns out that Aetna has been losing hundreds of millions of dollars on plans sold through the health exchanges, and now they plan to pull out of the program almost entirelyContinue reading »

Karl Denninger Rages: “Stop The Stupid!”:

Submitted by Karl Denninger via Market Ticker blog,

I tire of people who are too damned ignorant to be bothered with 30 seconds of research.

For example, one of the memes going around is how “evil” Aetna is because their CEO gets paid a lot of money.  The meme, of course, is that Aetna the company (and other health “insurers”) is screwing Americans out of huge amounts of money because they are refusing to continue selling “health insurance” at a loss through Obamacare exchanges, and told the government in advance that adverse action by them against a merger they wanted to conduct would lead them to not have the economy of scale required to defray those losses.

The government sued anyway, and they kept their promise.  For this they’re evil, you see. Continue reading »

Black fire chief fired for hiring too many white firefighters

Obama’s America: Black fire chief fired for hiring too many white firefighters:

This is what happens when you focus on race instead of merit.

A black man hired 9 white men who he thought were the most qualified to be firefighters and protect people.  The NAACP then complained because the firefighter class was full of white guys.  Of course, they went ahead and fired the black man who did the hiring.   Then, just when you think it can’t be any more ridiculous it is, the NAACP complained that he was fired.

Baltimore Sun – Officials at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport announced the hiring of its fire-and-rescue department’s first Hispanic fire chief Thursday, shortly after acknowledging that they had terminated its acting chief, an African-American, the day before.The hiring of Victor N. Ferreira Jr., a 52-year-old retired Prince George’s County fire official, comes amid complaints about diversity within the airport’s fire department, following the hiring of an all-white class of firefighter recruits last month. Ferreira said in a statement that one of his goals is “to ensure a diverse, inclusive workforce.” “I intend to reach out to a number of organizations to follow up on initiatives that focus on boosting opportunities for minority firefighters,” he said.

Meanwhile, officials with the International Association of Black Professional Fire Fighters and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People questioned the airport’s termination of Gregory Lawrence, who was named acting chief in November. The two organizations criticized the airport’s fire department about the all-white recruit class earlier this week. Continue reading »

US Giving Afghan Army $60 Million Worth of Guns:

The US State Department has announced their intention to transfer over 6,000 guns to the Afghan National Army, worth roughly $60 million, as proof of their “commitment to Afghanistan’s security,” and based on an “urgent need” for the Afghans to launch new offensives against insurgents.

The deal is being couched in the same “national security” terms as other US weapons sales to foreign powers, and the State Department has insisted that for official purposes, this weapons transfer will be treated as a “sale,” even though the Afghans won’t actually be paying for them.

If you don’t believe in global warming, you’re too ‘mentally ill’ to be allowed to buy a gun, says Obama:

In recent days, President Obama announced new “executive actions” on guns, that included language to shore up current federal law aimed at keeping mentally ill Americans from buying guns. Some skeptics of the president’s actions believe that, as is usually the case, there are ulterior motives behind his actions.

For example, some believe that the president’s order may include guidance on declaring people who disagree with Obama’s policies – like those regarding so-called “global warming” and “climate change” – as mentally unstable. Continue reading »

Monday’s bombing by the Saudi-led coalition of yet another Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF, Doctors Without Borders) hospital in Yemen, which killed 11 people and wounded at least 19 more, earned a rare admonition of the Saudis by the U.S. State Department.

“Of course, we condemn the attack,” State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau uncharacteristically asserted. Continue reading »

Shocking Government Report Finds $6.5 Trillion In Taxpayer Funds “Unaccounted For”:

Last week, we first touched on a topic which, in any non-banana republic, would be a far greater scandal than what Ryan Lochte may or may not have been doing in a Rio bathroom: namely, government corruption, falsification and potential fraud and embezzlement, which has resulted in the Pentagon being unable to account for up to $8.5 trillion in taxpayer funding.

Today, Reuters follows up on this disturbing issue, and reveals that the Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced. The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up. Continue reading »

Barack Obama: From Peace Prize to World’s Biggest Arms Dealer in 8 Short Years:

On Thursday, the U.S. State Department approved the sale of more military equipment, valued at around $1.15 billion USD, to the oil-rich kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This sounds like a lot of money to most of us, but the most frightening aspect of the sale is that it represents a continuation of an arms-dealing relationship between Washington and the Saudi regime, which has been worth over $50 billion USD in arms sales to date.

It is not an understatement to say Obama’s tears over gun violence are disingenuous considering his administration has enacted a policy of systematically arming the entire world with all manner of warcraft. According to the Department of Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), during his first six years in office, the Obama administration entered into agreements to sell more than $190 billion USD in weaponry worldwide. As the director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, William D. Hartung, states, this figure is higher than any U.S. administration since World War II. Perhaps that is why the Nobel secretary has voiced serious regrets about awarding the Peace Prize to the president. Continue reading »

Over Three Times as Many Contractors as Soldiers Remain

While the Obama Administration has presented its (already-stalled) drawdown in Afghanistan as “ending” the war and bringing the number of US forces down in the country to very small levels, they rarely discuss the substantial number of American defense contractors still in the country.

While the US officially has just 9,000 troops in Afghanistan, they also have some 29,000 contractors stationed around the country. Two-thirds of the contractors are said to be foreign nationals, with the Pentagon saying they are mostly involved in logistics and maintenance for the ongoing war. Continue reading »

obamacare will hurt

Obamacare Doomed As Insurers Lose $2 Billion On Plans In 2016 (Prompting 2017 Rates To Soar):

The typical rosy Democrat narrative on Obamacare highlights the decline in uninsured Americans as evidence of its great “success” while conveniently ignoring the fact that most of the “newly insured” are actually coming from the expansion of Medicaid.  The fact is that Obamacare is a debacle and is on the verge of collapse (see our previous post “Obamacare On “Verge Of Collapse” As Premiums Set To Soar Again In 2017“).

Our reasoning is quite simple and is the same reason Obamacare was doomed from the start.  As we’ve pointed out numerous times in the past, the true downfall of Obamacare will be in its inherent “adverse selection bias.”  “Sicker/older” people have every incentive to enroll while “younger/healthier” people, the ones that were supposed to subsidize everyone else by buying policies they didn’t need, are choosing to simply pay their penalties instead.  So what you’re left with is a pool of “sicker/older” people who consume a massive amount of healthcare but whom don’t pay “their fair share” because Obamacare specifically caps the rates that can be charged to the “sicker/older” people at 3x the rates charged to “younger/healthier” people (who cares if they consume 20x more healthcare…3x just sounded about right).  Continue reading »

Obama Tries to Sneak Through TPP in Lame-duck Congress:

By Jon Rappoport

First: know that the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) is a huge Globalist trade deal among 12 nations that would a) “phase out thousands of tariffs” (NY Times, 6/1/16) and b) set up corporate tribunals to punish nations that refuse to import goods (e.g., toxic pesticides, toxic medical drugs, GMOs).

In short, it’s a nightmare.

Wiping out tariffs is the cornerstone of the Globalist agenda. It allows companies in industrial countries to move their factories to Third World hell holes, pay slave wages, ignore environmental conditions, and then export their products back to the countries they abandoned—with no tariffs. No taxes. No penalties. Continue reading »

Obama Wants A Third Term And This Is How He Could Make It Happen:

By Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces)

Yes, we are all well aware the Constitution limits the Presidency to two consecutive four-year terms of office.  Then again, if you weigh the track record of the Obama administration, the Constitution is nothing more than a challenge that he bypasses and circumvents with every given opportunity.  Small wonder that he may very well do the same thing with the upcoming presidential elections.  Already a sham, the presidential elections are actually a vehicle he can use to grab that “Third Term” for himself.

First we’re going to quote straight out of the Huffington Post, an article from August 9, 2016, entitled “Does He Deserve a Third Term?  Obama is S.T.U.P.I.D!”  The acronym “STUPID” is supposed to stand for Super Human, Tough, Unequalled, Proactive, Ingenious, and Demi-god.

No, your eyes did not deceive you: that last was “Demi-god,” this article from a “Contributor” to the Huffington Post.  The last paragraph is very alarming, and here it is: Continue reading »
