Hacktivists Reveal Many US Olympians Were Allowed To Taking Banned Substances:

A second batch of secret data from the World Anti-Doping Agency’s database of athletes who took part in the 2016 Rio Olympics was released by the hacking group Fancy Bears; the list includes 10 ‘doping addicts’ from the US and five more from Britain.

The hacktivist group Fancy Bears published a second batch of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)’s medical data on athletes who took part in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

The publication came just a few days after Fancy Bears leaked alleged WADA documents showing that the agency had allowed US tennis players Serena and Venus Williams, as well as Olympic gold-winning gymnast Simone Biles and basketball star Elena Delle Donne to take banned substances for ‘therapeutic’ purposes.

Mugabe Orders Arrest Of “Rats We Call Athletes” After Zimbabwe Wins No Olympic Medals:

We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) why do you go to waste our money… If we needed people to just go to Brazil to sing our national anthem and hoist our flag, we would have sent some of the beautiful girls and handsome guys from University of Zimbabwe to represent us.”

Brazil Escalates: Authorities Pull 2 US Olympic Swimmers From Rio Flight:

It appears Brazilian officials are not simply going to let this one go. With Ryan Lochte reportedly back in the US (and teammate James Feigen unaccounted for) following the Brazilain judge’s search-and-seizure warrant, CNN reports that two fellow swimmers involved in the alleged robbery – Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz – were removed by Brazilian authorities on Wednesday night from their flight before it departed Rio de Janeiro to the United States, according to US Olympic Committee spokesman Patrick Sandusky.

Authorities Pull 2 US Olympic Swimmers From Rio Flight

As a reminder, Lochte, a gold-medal winner, said his wallet was stolen as he and three of his American teammates — Bentz, Conger and James Feigen — were returning to Rio’s Olympic Village in a taxi. They said they were robbed by men posing as police officers, adding that the group initially didn’t contact the U.S. Olympic Committee because they were “afraid (they’d) get in trouble.” The story made quick waves Sunday, especially after Lochte, 32, detailed the alleged encounter on the “Today” show. Lochte’s account has come under increased scrutiny since then. Embarrassed Rio police said they have found little evidence to support the accounts, and a police source said they are unable to find the taxi driver or witnesses.

And now as NBC reports,

Multiple sources told NBC Sports that Conger and Bentz cleared security and were in their seats on the plane when authorities came on to the aircraft shortly before takeoff and removed the swimmers.

They are being held at the airport but are being treated well and cordially, the sources said.

Authorities have indicated they don’t want to hold the swimmers long, but do want to know what happened during the early morning robbery, the sources said.

“We can confirm that Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz were removed from their flight to the United States by Brazilian authorities,” U.S. Olympic Committee spokesman Patrick Sandusky said. “We are gathering further information.”

Lochte’s lawyer Ostrow said Lochte gave police a statement as representatives from the U.S. State Department, United States Olympic Committee and the FBI observed. Lochte signed the statement to attest to its truthfulness, Ostrow said.

Police have not asked Lochte for more information, and they did not ask him to remain in Brazil, Ostrow said.

“They never said, ‘Stay around,'” Ostrow said. “Otherwise, I would have advised Ryan to stay.”

He accused Brazilian authorities of trying to “save face” after allowing the incident to become “a circus.”

Of course, if one were truly wearing their tin foil hat, one might wonder if this is somehow retribution for Washington’s alleged hand in Rousseff’s downfall…

Hunger Games: This One Olympic Photo Sums up Everything Wrong with Society:

The 31st Olympic summer games are underway in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and thousands of athletes and spectators from around the world have gathered for the event which will serve as prime time entertainment for the next couple of weeks. Every four years an insane amount of money is dumped into the spectacle as host cities and the Olympic committee construct arenas, stadiums and press quarters, leaving megalithic ruins in their wake.

Most of the news coverage about the events in Rio are centered around the pomp and splendor of athleticism, hoping to portray the affair as an opportunity for the world to feel united in sport, yet the truth is always hidden from the highlights and coverage: the world is suffering from terrible inequality and the fallout of economic tyranny, and the divide between the haves and have-nots is now greater than it has ever been.

South African middle-distance competitor Caster Semenya

Athlete with No Womb or Ovaries but Internal Testes Will Compete with Women in Rio:

With reports of dead bodies and excrement floating in the water, the threat of Zika and the Russian doping scandal, the Rio Olympics appears the Frankenstein of athletic events. And now Rio seems dopey in another way: owing to political correctness, a runner with, reportedly, no womb or ovaries but internal testes will be allowed to compete with women.

This person is South African middle-distance competitor Caster Semenya. Iwrote of Semenya in 2009, back when Semenya (I’m not satisfied that Semenya is female, so henceforth I’ll refer to the runner not with pronouns but as “CS”) was an 18-year-old phenom who’d just set a record while winning a world title, dusting female opponents in the process. These outstanding results, along with CS’s masculine physique, caused suspicion and led to tests to determine the athlete’s sexual status. Continue reading »

Tokyo (AFP) – Japan’s Olympic football teams will train for the Tokyo 2020 Games at a complex currently being used as a base for thousands of workers cleaning up the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

The Japan Football Association (JFA) said Monday that the Japanese men’s and women’s teams would hold their training camps at J-Village, once the country’s centre of excellence until it was taken over by plant operators following the 2011 nuclear disaster. Continue reading »

Achieve Olympic Glory – Now Pay the IRS (Americans For Tax Reform, Feb 7, 2014):

U.S. Olympic gold medal winners could owe almost $10,000 to the IRS
As 230 U.S. Olympic athletes gear up to compete in the 2014 Winter Games, the only thing colder than the slopes at Sochi is the fact that any prizes awarded by the U.S. Olympic Commission (USOC) will be taxed by the IRS. Many Americans don’t realize that the U.S. taxes income earned abroad, and as such even the winnings of Olympic athletes are subject to the reach of the IRS.
The USOC awards prizes to U.S. Olympic medal winners: $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver, and $10,000 for bronze. Relative to each athlete’s income tax bracket, some top earners such as Shaun White could end up paying over a third (39.6 percent) of their winnings to the IRS.

CIA-connected Terror Group Issues Threat Ahead of Russian Olympic Games (Infowars, Jan 20, 2014):

Group loyal to Shamil Basayev, a Chechen warlord trained by the CIA in Afghanistan

Vilayat Dagestan, a Salafist terror group loyal to Shamil Basayev, has taken credit for the Volgograd bombing in late December that claimed the lives of 34 people. A video posted on the group’s website shows two men, identified as the suicide bombers it says are responsible for the Russian attack, wearing explosive belts and posing with assault rifles.

The men warn terrorists will attack the Winter Olympics, scheduled to begin on February 6 in Sochi, a Russian resort city on the Black Sea.

“We have prepared a… present for you, for you (President Putin) and all those tourists who will come over,” the men say in a statement.

Japan Journalist: Melted nuclear fuel sank into the ground under Fukushima reactors — Irradiated groundwater is flowing into ocean through sea-bottom springs, it’s too late to do anything about this (PHOTO) (ENENews, Oct 22, 2013):

Kyunghyang Shinmun (Major daily newspaper in South Korea –Source), Oct. 21, 2013: Japan‘s Prime Minister Abe Shinzo, promoting Tokyo as the site for the 2020 Summer Olympics, said to the International Olympic Committee: “Some may have concerns about Fukushima. Let me assure you, the situation is under control. It has never done and will never do any damage to Tokyo.” […] To [journalist Hirose Takashi], Abe‘s words were a bald-faced lie. And he decided to make this lie known to the world, especially the world of sports. He has written A Letter to All Young Athletes Who Dream of Coming to Tokyo in 2020, and to Their Coaches and Parents: Some Facts You Should Know. […] to conceal from them the truth about Tokyo today is not merely unkind; it is criminal. […]

Excerpts from Hirose’s letter: […] Inside Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactors #1 – #3 the pipes (which had circulated cooling water) are broken, which caused a meltdown. This means the nuclear fuel overheated, melted, and continued to melt anything it touched. Thus it melted through the bottom of the reactor, and then through the concrete floor of the building, and sank into the ground. […] for two and a half years TEPCO workers have been desperately pouring water into the reactor, but it is not known whether the water is actually reaching the melted fuel. […] Only the fact that irradiated water is leaking onto the surface of the ground around the reactor is reported. But deep under the surface the ground water is also being irradiated, and the ground water flows out to sea and mixes with the seawater through sea-bottom springs. It is too late to do anything about this. […] It’s a sad story, but this is the present situation of Japan and of Tokyo. I had loved the Japanese food and this land until the Fukushima accident occurred.

Endless Fukushima catastrophe: 2020 Olympics under contamination threat (RT, Sep 15, 2013):

As the escape of radiation at Fukushima seems virtually unstoppable, there are still steps that governments all over the world should take to prevent worst case consequences. One of them would be canceling the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Scientific estimates predict that the radioactive plume travelling east across the Pacific will likely hit the shores of Oregon, Washington State and Canada early next year. California will probably be impacted later that year. Because the ongoing flow of water from the reactor site will be virtually impossible to stop, a radioactive plume will continue to migrate across the Pacific affecting Hawaii, North America, South America and eventually Australia for many decades.

Japan Government To Spend Almost $500 MILLION In Attempt To Contain Fukushima Leaks:

The decision is widely seen as a safety appeal just days before the International Olympic Committee chooses between Tokyo, Istanbul and Madrid on which city will host the 2020 Olympics.

Tokyo To Host 2020 Summer Olympics (ZeroHedge, Sep 7, 2013):

Despite Mariano Rajoy’s solemn promises that awarding the 2020 Olympics to Madrid would boost the Spanish GDP by 1.8% and lead to the creation of anywhere between 168,000 and a few hundred million new jobs (the latter number is a joke but since it comes from Rajoy, both are equally credible), the Olympic committee cut the Spanish contender before the final, which pitted Tokyo vs Istanbul. And when the final votes were tallied it was not even a contest: with 60 to 36 votes, the 2020 Olympics Games will be held in Tokyo: the city that was supposed to host the event in 1940 but due to the break out of World War II the event was delayed until 1964 (when it was almost cancelled again, permanently, following a modest escalation in nuclear deterrence between the US and USSR surrounding Cuba). Let’s hope history does not rhyme.

Austerity At The Olympics: Each “Gold” Medal Contains 1.34% Gold (ZeroHedge, July 30, 2012):

As every Olympic athlete knows, size matters. The London 2012 medals are the largest ever in terms of both weight and diameter – almost double the medals from Beijing. However, just as equally well-known is that quality beats quantity and that is where the current global austerity, coin-clipping, devaluation-fest begins. The 2012 gold is 92.5 percent silver, 6.16 copper and… 1.34 percent gold, with IOC rules specifying that it must contain 550 grams of high-quality silver and a whopping 6 grams of gold. The resulting medallion is worth about $500. For the silver medal, the gold is replaced with more copper, for a $260 bill of materials. The bronze medal is 97 percent copper, 2.5 percent zinc and 0.5 percent tin. Valued at about $3, you might be able to trade one for a bag of chips in Olympic park if you skip the fish.

Size Matters…(via BBC)

Though Olympic gold is no longer 100 percent gold, a medal can still fetch big money. In 2010, a gold medal worn by Mark Wells, a member of the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” U.S. men’s hockey team, was auctioned off for $310,700. Several years before that, Wells had sold his medal to cover medical expenses. Just before the auction, the medal was valued at $100,000 but it earned three times that amount. Heritage Auctions of Dallas identified the 2010 buyer as a rancher from the western U.S.

The question remains – with the minimum 103 medals expected to be won by US athletes, will Bernanke be forced to reduce the size of NEW QE as ‘all that precious metal is horded and repatriated back to the USA’?

Dave Barry: A bit of outrage in the ‘Isles of Wonder’ as Olympics kick off (McClatchy, July 27, 2012):

LONDON — The Olympics officially got under way Friday with the much-anticipated opening ceremony, titled “Isles of Wonder,” which, as the name suggests, was a spectacular three-hour tribute to Hawaii.

No, seriously, it was a tribute to Great Britain, starting with the past, when this was a rural society – depicted in the show by 120 actual farm animals, including sheep, horses and cows – then moving forward through Britain’s many great historic achievements such as the Beatles. The complex and imaginative show went off without a hitch, except for one unfortunate incident when four of the sheep were shot by members of the Kazakhstani Olympic archery team, who apparently misunderstood the nature of the event.

Al-Alam and Reuters Report Hillary Clinton Convoy Attack in Israel


Breaking/Confirmed: Sec Clinton Assassination Attempt in Israel (Updated) (Veterans Today):

Israeli radio and Reuters broke the story then went mysteriously silent, an assassination attempt inside Israel, on Secretary of State Clinton.

Soon afterward, Iran’s national network, al Alam went public with a translated version which is being boycotted by news services.

Details on the unsuccessful murder attempt on America’s top diplomat below but first some background.

Possibly responsible for the assassination attempt on Clinton is this tale of deceit by Rep. Michelle Bachmann as outlined by CNN’s Andersen Cooper:


We see this as part of a pattern of escalation by Israel, carefully orchestrated terrorism which may well culminate in an attack on the London Olympics as has been predicted by many.  Nothing less could bring about the result Netanyahu desires, a massive US and NATO air attack on Iran, and note this carefully, not an attack on Syria.

The video below describes how Israeli contractors are sabotaging London Olympic security.  Highly credible source:


It is our opinion that this is a valid news story.  We believe the attack on Clinton is related to the current political upheaval in Israel, an attempt to kill Clinton, blame Iran and take the focus off the domestic political meltdown.

We also feel the bus attack in Bulgaria, killing 6 Israeli citizens is highly suspect for the same reasons as well.

Israeli radio broke the story Sunday night, midnight, but never mentioned it again.  This has been confirmed by sources inside Israel

The real story as we have been able to learn is this;  About 16 hours ago, Secretary Clintons convoy, traveling from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, was attacked.  There would have been a minimum of 3 to 5 vehicles, with Clinton probably traveling in a bulletproofed Chevy Tahoe or Israel built Toyota Land Cruiser.

This follows the story earlier of an attack on a bus loaded with Israeli tourists that exploded in Bulgaria.  Six were killed.  Netanyahu said he would respond by attacking Iran.  It is our opinion that this was a Mossad “false flag” operation much as was the Clinton assassination attempt.  Bulgarian security services are trained by the Mossad.  There are dozens of Mossad agents operating in Bulgaria which still has in place massive Soviet era security services that follow all tourists and check on every “overnight” guest in Bulgaria.

In fact, you can’t leave Bulgaria without meal and hotel receipts being reviewed.  Bulgaria is considered, next to North Korea, the most “watchful” nation on earth.

There has never been evidence of any Iranian security personnel operating in Eastern Europe though Iran could, if they chose, claim retaliation for the murder inside Iran of a number of scientists and their families, acts openly admitted to by Israel.   Iran has, however, made no such threats.

Coincidentally, the attack on Clinton was within hours of her statement in support of Israel regarding the Bulgarian attack.  We do not believe in coincidences and find the timing of these events and the arrival of the USS Stennis, another American aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, to be coincidental also.

Were Secretary Clinton murdered as intended, Iran would have been blamed also as would Iran have been blamed for the US Navy’s attack on a Dubai fishing boat which failed to sink, a boat the Navy said was “Republican Guard” but returned to Dubai with dead and wounded fishermen who were gunned down, unarmed by American .50 caliber machine gun rounds.

In making these statements, which will surprise none of the world’s intelligence community, we expect reprisals from Mossad based press management and intimidation groups, such as the one that suppressed the Clinton murder attempt.

A white Citroen DS, a French car built (assembly plant in Israel) drove alongside the convoy and opened up on Clinton’s vehicle with automatic weapons fire.

Normal security procedures should have prevented any vehicle on open regions from coming within 200 meters of Clinton.  Additionally, the Secretary of State would have traveled with Apache helicopter air support above while on open highway.

Thus, the concept of a cheap French sedan with plastic wheels and a 1 litre deisel engine escaping such an incident is fanciful.


The translation of the intercepted Reuter’s story from Israel is below.

We list probability of the story being high and that networks are being asked to suppress the incident as an embarrassment to Israel.

Reports are coming in, to Israeli blogs, radio and TV that red flares and illumination is seen at the “alleged ” site.

This is the first visit by Secretary Clinton to Israel in two years:
Israeli sources reported that the procession of Hillary Clinton Secretary of State was fired on yesterday, while passing through on the road to Jerusalem – Tel Aviv,” states Al-Alam News.
According to information published by the site ‘Reuters’, the car was a white‘Citroen’.
The assassition team approached the Clinton convoy and opened up with multiple automatic weapons.
Secretary Clinton was not injured but members of the security staff spoke with press, leading to a news announcement in Israel which was quickly denied.
Citizens of the region noted the area under “illumination” used, either artillery or dropped from aircraft.

Hundreds of uniformed Olympics officers will begin touring the country today enforcing sponsors’ multimillion-pound marketing deals, in a highly organised mission that contrasts with the scramble to find enough staff to secure Olympic sites.

Almost 300 enforcement officers will be seen across the country checking firms to ensure they are not staging “ambush marketing” or illegally associating themselves with the Games at the expense of official sponsors such as Adidas, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and BP. The clampdown goes on while 3,500 soldiers on leave are brought in to bail out the security firm G4S which admitted it could not supply the numbers of security staff it had promised.

Team USA To Be Decked Out in Uniforms Made in China (ABC News, July 11, 2012):

ABC News’ Sharyn Alfonsi reports:

They are the pride of America – Team U.S.A. – and for the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in London, they’ll be proudly wearing red, white and blue, from beret to blazer.

The classic American style – shown in an image above – was crafted by designer Ralph Lauren. But just how American is it?

When ABC News looked at the labels, it found “made in China.

Every item in the uniforms that the U.S. athletes will be wearing at the opening ceremony in London will carry an overseas label.

Nanette Lepore, one of the top U.S. fashion designers, said she was shocked that none of the uniforms had been made in the states. Further, Lepore said that it was “absolutely” possible that the athletes could have been outfitted in U.S.-made clothing. She said U.S. manufactures could have easily made the uniforms – and for less.

Here’s how much the uniforms cost: Continue reading »

Thousands more Armed Forces personnel will be forced to carry out “menial” security work for the Olympic Games, leaving defence chiefs furious.

The Army has been told soldiers are needed to join police carrying out menial security tasks like bag searches at the Olympic Games Photo: AP Photo/Matt Dunham

MoD fury as soldiers forced to carry out menial security tasks for Olympic Games (Telegraph, July 11, 2012):

The British Army has been ordered to provide more troops for the Games to make up for a shortfall in staff provided by private security contractors.

The Daily Telegraph understands that defence chiefs have angrily complained to Olympic organisers, accusing them of mismanaging their security contract and leaving the Armed Forces to bear the burden.

The Ministry of Defence last year said that 13,500 military personnel would be assigned to Olympic duties, with 7,500 of them in security roles at Olympic venues.

It is understood that another 3,500 troops have now been told to prepare for duties at Games sites. More troops have now been given ‘notice to move’ orders, an Army source revealed.

Defence sources said that the total military contribution to the Games is now likely to reach 20,000 personnel – more than a tenth of the entire Armed Forces.

Many of the troops assigned to the Games are Afghan veterans. They will be ordered to carry out rudimentary security work including bag searches at venue entrances.
