In mid-summer a wave of panic and despair began to wash over key rank-and-file FBI agents who were doggedly working the Hillary Clinton investigations. Agents reluctantly pondered a potential, brutal reality that was creeping into the fabric of the high-profile case. What if their collective work wasn’t meant to bring this case to a grand jury for indictments and justice? What if they themselves, FBI agents sworn to uphold the law, were being used as intelligence pawns by superiors and higher powers to actually shield Clinton and her inner circle from ever seeing a pair of handcuffs and a jail cell?
“I got a pit in my stomach,” a FBI insider said. “That empty, sinking feeling you get in your gut. I thought we may have unknowingly been parties to this entire mess. It’s a blow to the ego. We’re supposed to see these things coming.”
This article answers a lot of our most perplexing questions about the FBI's investigations of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Bring Xanax. You'll need it after reading the whole thing.
The spacecraft was China's first space station launched in September 2011
Tiangong-1 was a forerunner for a larger space complex to be built in 2020
Without control it could explode and rain molten metal down onto Earth
The Tiangong-1 space station module (artist's depiction) was
China's first step towards its ultimate goal of developing, building,
and operating a large Space Station as a permanent human
presence in Low Earth Orbit. The nation has now lost control of
the space station
All lanes of Interstate 85 were reopened early Wednesday but still littered with some rocks and glass after a night of protests over an officer-involved shooting of an African-American man in the University City area. The officer was also African-American.
Twelve police officers were injured Tuesday night in a series of clashes, and reports were coming in early Wednesday of motorists on Interstate 85 being hurt and their vehicles damaged when protestors threw rocks, bottles and traffic cones off interstate overpasses onto traffic below.
At least seven of the police officers needed to be hospitalized after the clashes, including one who was hit in the face with a rock.
Mayor Jennifer Roberts sent out a message on Twitter early Wednesday, noting: “I will continue to work with our manager and (police) chief...We are reaching out to community to ask for calm.”
In addition to Interstate 85, protestors attacked and looted the Walmart on North Tryon Street at about 3:30 a.m. The store was closed early Wednesday, with wooden pallets piled in front of the doors and shopping carts blocking the driveway into the lot.
Three or more tractor trailer trucks were stopped and looted on Interstate 85, and at least two fires were started on the interstate, as the protestors burned items taken from the trucks.
Motorists were reportedly stuck on Interstate 85 for hours at the height of the protests, which ignited at a time when the nation has seen a spate of police shootings of black men, which has led to protests from Ferguson, Mo., to Tulsa to Chicago and started the Black Lives Matter movement.
Police have not released details on how many people were arrested, but some media outlets were reporting five people were taken into custody. The neighborhood where the incident occurred was quiet Wednesday, aside from a large media presence.
Sears Holdings announced yesterday it will close an additional 68 Kmarts and 10 Sears over the next few months
The closures are on top of the 50 stores that were announced were closing in February
The company has closed almost 10 per cent of its stores since financial troubles began
I wanted to put this under the Lookout Tower thread because it fits in "Financial Meltdown II". But then it may not be seen.
Then I wanted to put it in the "War Room", because Soros said the Chicoms would go to war when the economy fails - as this states WILL happen. But, there is no "War Room" - YET!!!
So, I will put it here. I hope all of you economics and banking and investment Gurus will interpret the article for me (Can't even balance my electronic checkbook). It looks like China is too "Big to Fail"! But, China is going down a very dark path with no ability to go backward from the precipice it is starring at. It appears they may be several orders of magnitude deep in shit!
I shouldn't laugh - as it means war (according to Soros).
An interstate gasoline pipeline has ruptured in central Alabama, spilling a quarter of a million gallons of fuel in an ecologically sensitive area and threatening fuel shortages across the eastern US. So far governors in Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina have declared states of emergency.
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on.
Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America's priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans--a debt tax that Washington doesn't want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here.'' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit.
Oh... yeah... this is from March 16, 2006. Now that Obama is President, it is not, I repeat, NOT a failure of leadership, it is not robbing people of investments and their future. Obama promised Change and change we got - he changed that. All on his own. He is providing jobs, saving not just the US but the entire global economy, and the people who oppose raising the debt limit in 2013... well, they are just evil, uncooperative terrorists and kidnappers.
At first I chuckled... that's a reach. But then I remembered the flurry of dozens of bills put forth in DC to change the Presidential eligibility requirements before Obama announced his candidacy, and... well, they would be killing two birds with one stone...
In the immigration bill is language which would DECRIMINALIZE…
‘Falsely representing or knowingly using a Social Security Number obtained with false information’
‘Falsely claiming citizenship on Form I-9′
‘Knowingly altering a Social Security Card’
‘Document fraud to prove eligibility for employment’
Oh yes, this is all meant for those 11 million ILLEGAL ALIENS already residing in the United States as part of the AMNESTY provisions…
OBAMA…IS…ONE OF THOSE 11 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!!!!!
Obama had to be an Indonesian citizen to attend school there as a boy and, he NEVER repatriated.
He is STILL an Indonesian citizen meaning that he is in THIS country ILLEGALLY.
Whether he KNOWINGLY or UNKNOWINGLY is using a SOCIAL SECURITY card issued to a CONNECTICUT man in 1977…Under the provisions of the IMMIGRATION REFORM bill, He would NOT be held to account for it.
As Obama’s Birth Certificate, the one he had posted on the white house website as being his OFFICIAL birth certificate has been proven to be a FRAUD…Under the provisions of the IMMIGRATION BILL…HE WOULD NOT BE HELD TO ACCOUNT FOR IT!!!
Falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen?
UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE IMMIGRATION BILL…OBAMA WOULD NOT BE HELD TO ACCOUNT FOR IT!!!!!!
Are you getting the picture here?
ALL of Obama’s fraudulent and created out of thin air past would be…DECRIMINALIZED…ALL of it.
While the distractions just keep coming…
Fast and Furious…Benghazi…IRS…NSA…Snowden…Hillary’s State Dept. Sex and Drug scandal…And while this absurdly corrupt and amoral regime continues to “fundamentally transform” the United States by paving the road between Sodom and Gomorrah…
There is DESPERATION in the senate to pass this immigration bill BEFORE ANYONE HAS A CHANCE TO READ THROUGH IT just as they did with Obamacare.
Read the FULL article by Mark Steyn as it is being quoted all over the internet. Here's a taste. I hope it gives you the chills.
In April last year, the Obama campaign identified by name eight Romney donors as “a group of wealthy individuals with less than reputable records. Quite a few have been on the wrong side of the law, others have made profits at the expense of so many Americans, and still others are donating to help ensure Romney puts beneficial policies in place for them.” That week, Kimberley Strassel began her Wall Street Journal column thus:
Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. . . . The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
Miss Strassel wrote that on April 26, 2012. Five weeks later, one of the named individuals, Frank VanderSloot, was informed by the IRS that he and his wife were being audited. In July, he was told by the Department of Labor of an additional audit over the guest workers on his cattle ranch in Idaho. In September, he was notified that one of his other businesses was to be audited. Mr. VanderSloot, who had never previously been audited, attracted three in the four months after being publicly named by el Presidente. More to the point he attracted that triple audit even though Miss Strassel explicitly predicted in America’s biggest-selling newspaper that this was exactly what the Obama enforcers were going to do. The “separate, sinister entity” of the government of the United States went ahead anyway. What do they care? If some lippy broad in the papers won’t quit her yapping about it, they can always audit her, too — as they did to Miss Strassel’s sometime colleague Anne Hendershott, a sociology professor who got rather too interested in Obamacare and wrote about it in the Journal and various small Catholic publications. The IRS summoned Professor Hendershott to account for herself, and forbade her husband from accompanying her, even though they filed jointly. She ceased her political writing.
A year after he was named to the Obama Dishonor Roll, the feds have found nothing on Mr. VanderSloot, but they have caused him to rack up 80 grand in legal bills. This is what IRS defenders (of whom there are more than there ought to be) mean when they assure us that the system worked: Yes, some rich guy had to blow through the best part of six figures fending off the bureaucrats, but it’s not like his body was found in a trunk at the airport or anything, if you know what I mean, Kimmy baby.
The Earth at night, a new short you tube movie. More detailed then the older picture versions. Even boats are visible (there's a short part where you can see the 'Chinese Sea' all lit up with fishing boats with neighbouring areas much darker).
Yesterday I visited their facility. What a wonderful group of volunteers! They rehabilitate injured animals of all kinds including hawks, owls, eagles and other raptors. Sometimes it works out and they are set free, sometimes they become "ambassadors" for education and sometimes, sadly, they are euthanized. Its life unfortunately. They are 100% dependent on donations and volunteers. I was so impressed by their devotion. The stories and follow ups are quite interesting and sometimes heartbreaking. Knowing some of our readers here, I think you might enjoy following them (and maybe helping out by spreading the word)
