It was only a few weeks ago that I told you about the government’s annual report on Social Security.
It was a veritable death sentence for the program.
The Board of Trustees for Social Security (which includes the US Treasury Secretary) wrote that major parts of the program have already run out of money, and the rest of Social Security will run out of money in the next decade.
Amazing. Even Social Security knows that they’re bankrupt and unable to keep their promises to taxpayers.
This is going to cause an unbelievable crisis in the United States.
Think about it: half of Americans have ZERO retirement savings and will be fully dependent on the Social Security once they retire. Continue reading »
t turns out that Donald Trump’s proposed border wall is not such a bad idea after all. Though Mexico’s current and former Presidents have both lambasted Trump for implying that a wall would curb immigration, it turns out that Mexicans like the idea.
There is one small caveat, however. Mexicans don’t want to build the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, but rather, they want to stem the tide of immigration into their own country by building the wall on their southern border with central America: Continue reading »

“Smoke-screening? Disinformation? Hidden Agenda?
Can we believe anything at all where there is any connection with USA/CIA/MI6/Mossad? Anything at all?
Aren’t we better off mumbling and bumbling in the bushes, picking berries?”
For me it was a staged ‘coup’ designed to fail.
The former commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, retired US Army General John F. Campbell, was the mastermind behind the failed military coup in Turkey, the Yeni Safak daily has reported, citing sources close to investigation.
Not content with implementing a state of emergency which has given Erdogan unlimited powers to continue an unprecedented purge of political enemies which has seen over 60,000 workers sacked, over 13,000 arrested, among them soldiers, judges, prosecutors, teachers, deans, hospital workers, and as of today, 42 journalists, in the aftermath of the staged failed coup, which also includes the closure and seizure of 1,043 private schools, 1,229 charities and foundations, 19 trade unions, 15 universities and 35 hospitals Turkey’s latest target are those who refuse to question the official script.

One month after the tragic Orlando nightclub deaths, which have since been swept away by a series of increasingly more escalating, disturbing and deadly mass shooting assaults in Europe, moments ago newswires reported that at least two people were killed and “at least 14-16” wounded during in a shooting at a Florida nightclub, police said early Monday. According to NBC, the incident happened during a “teen night” in the parking lot of Club Blu in Fort Myers at around 12:30 a.m. ET.
Of the 16 people taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one died after being admitted and two others were in the intensive-care unit as of early Monday. One other person was confirmed killed in the incident, according to police. Continue reading »

“Some interesting common denominators applicable to the plethora of massacres we are having thrown at us as part of the constant wave of fear and loathing.”
People who don’t trust government, those who think on their own and tend to question what they hear, by now are all becoming experts at identifying false flag staged events. With so many recent staged psyop events in the news lately many of us are getting a lot of practice at this. But have you considered that the script has become more complex than you think? Have you considered that you (we) are being fooled in some way as we speak? Have you taken into account that the events happening today are all happening in a post-Jade Helm revelation AI era? Today’s events are happening in a very sophisticated world of unimaginably deep levels of political corruption actively at work and deeply focused on removing all of our rights and freedoms and cementing their new global order. This complex and deep reality alone is something many people refuse to face; and without facing this you’ll never be able to peel and dig deeper into the deep state’s structure, mind and mechanisms that are behind these chaotic staged psyop false flag events.

TOKYO — At least 15 people have been stabbed to death at a facility for people with disabilities outside Tokyo, Japanese media reported early Tuesday, describing the kind of mass-casualty attack that is extremely rare in Japan.
A knife-wielding man apparently went on a rampage at the facility in Sagamihara, west of Tokyo. Citing police, the Kyodo news agency said 19 people were dead, while public broadcaster NHK said 15 were killed.
As many as several dozen people were injured, the reports said. Continue reading »
It was about six months ago when global stock markets were crashing, that China tightened its control on local media, and ordered the local press and news outlets to stick to “positive reporting” or else “risk the stability of the country.” As we reported back in February “China is now openly declaring war on anyone who dares to even suggest that not all may be well in China. A separate commentary by Xinhua yesterday said that controlling public opinion was essential for a a ruling party: “With one hand we grab the guns; with the other we grab the pens,” it said. “Mobilising public opinion is the great tradition of our party.”In other words, China is worried that popular anger and negative sentiment is starting to stir especially after the recent economic troubles, and that those who dare to promote an objective version of reality will likely be promptly quieted.” Continue reading »
Mayor of German city of Ansbach Karda Seidel said that the cause of the explosion in the city center was an explosive device. “This is not a gas explosion, it was caused by a bomb,” said Seidel.
A bomb attack in the downtown area of the German City of Ansbach killing 1 and wounding 11 was not the result of a gas leak, but was in fact a terror attack. The parties responsible for the bombing and their motivations remain undetermined at this time. Continue reading »
Days after the German mainstream press attempted to portray the Munich shooter both as an ISIS fighter and a right wing extremist, more information has come to light surrounding the history of the shooter and his motives. But, the more information reported by the mainstream press regarding the incident, the more questions that arise in connection to the incident itself.
To be clear, there is not enough evidence to clearly label this attack as a false flag or as a lone nut incident. Still, there are a number of questions that need to be answered and there are a number of aspects to this case that need to be addressed as potentially more than merely striking coincidences. We must avoid the temptation to label every attack as a false flag but we must never ignore the signs that we are witnessing one. Continue reading »

Clinton Cash, is a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book that the New York Times hailed as “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle.”Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as US Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.

- Police say a Syrian refugee killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in the southwestern German city of Reutlingen before being arrested.
- Police spokesman Bjoern Reusch said in a statement Sunday that witnesses said the 21-year-old man, who was known to police, was having an argument with the woman before attacking her about 4:30 p.m. Police say the motive behind the attack is still not clear.
- The attack comes as Germany is on edge following a rampage at a Munich mall on Friday night in which nine people were killed, and an ax attack on a train a week ago by a young Afghan migrant that left five wounded in southern Germany.
- Police said the attacked in Reutlingen had caused injury previously, but did not give details, reports the BBC.
- For many Germans, the tipping point was New Year’s Eve in Cologne. Most of the suspects identified in connection with an extensive series of robberies and sexual assaults in Cologne during New Year’s celebrations were later identified as refugees by Germany prosecutors.

Update 4: The man was identified as a Syrian asylum seeker, aged 21, who was previously known to law enforcement, the local police department said in a statement. The motives of the man are still unclear; the murdered woman was reportedly pregnant. Continue reading »
On its second day of investigation into the motives behind David Ali Sonboly shooting spree, the Bavarian crime office provided additional details into his motives after searching the Munich shooter’s home, and said that it found materials consistent with the theory that he had been planning the attack for a whole year prior to the act. Police also say a manifesto was left at the site of the shooting.
Bavarian investigator Robert Heimberger said the 18-year-old shooter visited the site of a previous school shooting in the German town of Winnenden and took photographs. In what will likely be an early pivot to blaming video game violence, he said the shooter was an avid player of first-person shooter video games, including “Counter-Strike: Source.” Thomas Steinkraus-Koch, spokesman for Munich prosecutors’ office said there is still no evidence of any political motivation to the crime, nor that the shooter killed specific victims.

With the failed/staged Turkish coup quickly fading from memory and media attention, just as Erdogan likes it, and opposition from “western democracies” to a historic purge virtually non-existant aside from the occasional media soundbite, overnight Erdgoan implemented his first decree since imposing a state of emergency in the country last week, and tightened his grip on Turkey by ordering the closure of thousands of private schools, charities and other institutions in his first decree since imposing a state of emergency after the failed military coup.
In his first “emergency powers” decree, published by the Anadolu state news agency, Erdogan authorised the closure of 1,043 private schools, 1,229 charities and foundations, 19 trade unions, 15 universities and 35 hospitals over suspected links to the Gulen movement. The government also announced it would seize the properties of all these schools, universities and private institutions. Continue reading »
What was initially said to be a coordinated attack killing 9 and wounding 27, involving up to three gunmen has since been attributed to a lone, 18-year-old German-born male student with both German and Iranian citizenship, identified moments ago as David Ali Sonboly. As authorities try to piece together the motive behind the latest mass killing, the third one in Europe in the past 9 days, and one which targeted mostly other young people, the emerging picture is that of a mentally disturbed young man with an obssession for killing sprees, and who had undergone psychiatric treatment.
German ARD said that there are “no indications” so far that the gunman was motivated by religious or political views.
The gunman was not a refugee, Munich police chief Hubertus Andrae told a news conference on Saturday. He added that the gunman shot dead nine people and then committed suicide with a 9mm Glock semi-automatic pistol, and that 300 rounds were found in his backpack. The victims’ ages were 15, 15, 14, 14, 14, 17, 19, 20, and 45, the latter of whom was female.
The gunman had been receiving psychiatric and medical care to help him cope with depression, but there is no information on his psychiatric status, the police said adding that it will take some time to find out if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. His body was found about 1km (half a mile) from the mall. Continue reading »

- Founding member of Melbourne’s Apex gang sheds light on the group that has been linked to the Moomba riots
- A Daily Mail Australia investigation reveals what it is really like being part of the violent group terrorising the city
- John*, 21, said the notorious gang was ‘get rich or get robbed’ and ‘you don’t want to be the one left behind’

A founding member of Melbourne’s notorious Apex gang has opened up on the African group’s spiral into serious crime – from taking cars for cheap thrills to seeing a victim cough up $25,000 to save himself from being ‘rolled’ by members.
John*, 21, spoke exclusively to Daily Mail Australia and said the gang was about ‘standing up, and making a name for themselves’.
‘It is get rich or get robbed, you don’t want to be the one left behind,’ he said. Continue reading »
Don’t “despair” over Brexit, British people will soon be a minority due to mass immigration and lower breeding rates, so says The Economist.
In 2014, 27% of babies born in England and Wales had immigrant mothers, up from just 12% in 1990. Polish women had more babies than any other immigrant group: they accounted for 3.2% of all births. Pakistanis were second, followed by Indians, Bangladeshis and Nigerians. Many other babies who were born to British women had an immigrant father. Soon these babies will be in school and their parents will be pinned to Britain. Continue reading »
A German protestant theologian said that ‘radical’ bible groups are a bigger radicalisation threat to adolescents than Islamists, and downplayed the number of minors who have converted and left Germany to fight for Islamic State.
Harald Lamprecht, Christian theologian and sect commissioner for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saxony, in an interview with Der Morgenpost claims that “radical bible groups” are more of a risk to the youths of Saxony than Islamism. Continue reading »
In a dramatic example of the extreme polarization between the left- and right-leaning American public, a ‘brawl’ broke out between famous left-wing host of “The Young Turks” Cenk Uygur and controversial conservative Alex Jones (of InfoWars) on the sidelines of the Republican National Convention. The contretemps was caught on tape in Media Row at the GOP convention, but as The Hill reports, it’s unclear from the video what exactly they were arguing about beyond name-calling – “anti-liberal,” “bitch,” “hatchet man,” “liar” – and a suggestion that Uygur doesn’t talk enough about Saudi Arabia.
Uygur, the host of a popular left-wing web video show, called Stone a “piece of crap” and “the biggest liar in media.”
“Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit!” shouted back Stone, a longtime Trump adviser who has no official role on the campaign.
InfoWars founder Jones stood over Uygur on the show’s set, holding a microphone, gesticulating in the progressive host’s face and urging him to debate Stone.
“First of all, Alex, this ain’t your f—ing show,” Uygur shouted back. “And Roger, this surely ain’t your f—ing show.” Continue reading »
The TSA is a multibillion dollar agency with nearly zero redeemable qualities. It can only act in hindsight, does almost nothing to make traveling safer, and seemingly devotes most of its screening efforts to toddlers, cancer patients, and ensuring carry-on liquids do not exceed three ounces.
What it lacks in competency, it makes up in misconduct. Lines at security checkpoints have slowed to a crawl. Making it through the tedious, invasive process sometimes means inadvertently “donating” expensive electronics to sticky-fingered agents. The TSA’s morale is generally on par with Congress’ approval rates. And, when it’s all said and done, the people hired to protect travelers just plain suck at their job. Continue reading »
Royal College of Nursing says there is still a lot of work to do to end practice following publication of first annual FGM statistics
There were 5,700 new cases of female genital mutilation recorded in England in 2015-16, the first annual statistics show.
The figures, published on Thursday by the Health and Social Care Information Centre and covering the period of April 2015 to March 2016, show that in 18 cases the practice had been undertaken in the UK.
The age group for which FGM was most common was five- to nine-year-olds, accounting for 43% of the total number of cases where the age at the time of being cut was known. Continue reading »
The dramatic increase over the past years in forced marriages and female genital mutilation has spurred Norway into taking serious action. In July, new legislative changes come into force to specifically target this problem, previously unfamiliar for the Nordic kingdom, otherwise known for its perhaps too vigorous enforcement of children’s rights.
Last year alone, the Norwegian authorities had to handle about 400 cases of girls married off against their will, sexually mutilated or forcefully kept abroad. Most of the girls were from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, but last year even Syrians formed a significant group. However, these figures are only the tip of the iceberg, as many more young people are unable to stand up for themselves and go against their parents will, Immigration and Integration minister Sylvi Listhaug argued.

Residential areas of the Swedish cities of Borlänge and Norrköping suffered through a dramatic weekend of unrest: cars were set on fire, and when the cities’ police and fire brigades arrived at the scene, they were pelted with rocks. This is only one link in a long chain of events that have plunged once-stable Sweden further into chaos.
Sweden has recently seen a wave of unhinged aggression against law enforcement officers. Both the police and state social service professionals admit that attacks against police and public safety personnel have increased throughout the country. In addition to hurling stones, criminals have been reported to have resorted to using hand grenades and knives, the tabloid Expressen reported. Continue reading »
By you, maybe, Bishop Hofmann. But sane people see quite clearly what is happening. When a Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” and affiliated with the Islamic State attacks non-Muslims with an axe, it’s just another episode in the global jihad against Infidels. And contrary to the fond hopes and fantasies that prevail in the Vatican, and in the Catholic Church in general these days, no amount of “dialogue” is going to end this jihad that Hofmann and his ilk so determinedly ignore.
