8,000 Documents Detail CIA Crimes — But US Media Won’t Touch Them

Wikileaks Vault7 dump will result in the largest publication of classified material ever. The methods used by the CIA to spy on and execute covert, unlawful assasinations on their adversaries or just people that get in their way have been published in detail, but the news is still spinning around requests that Trump provide evidence for his tweet which accused Obama of having his communications tapped.

How the ACLU is gearing up to take on Trump, one city at a time

WASHINGTON — The American Civil Liberties Union wants to take over your town. On Saturday, the organization is launching a nationwide campaign to push local governments to become “Freedom Cities” by adopting a series of policies to make them safe havens for immigrants and refugees amid what the group has dubbed President Trump’s “mass deportation agenda.”

Mr Shakir, let me explain how the VAST MAJORITY of the country feels about your master plan by telling you a little story:

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the chit. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table ... everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food. After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ..... quiet, serene.... and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now let's see.....Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care and free education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; Your child's second grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to 'press one ' to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ”ours” are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties. I think it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder. I’ve about had it with this chit.
And look, if you don’t like what I’ve just written here then it’s probably time for you to pack your ditty bag and leave because we’ve elected a president who was elected legally on promising to do just what I just wrote about in this illustrative little story. I like having birds in my yard just like any other bird over but I determine how many and by hospitality, I run the show, the birds don’t and should a radical squirrel try to raid the seed he or she tastes my pellet gun.
There’s a message here Shakir, hope you got it because it’s coming, one way or the other it’s coming. Peacefully or violently, bet on it.

We needed lawsuits capped (tort reform) in order to lower doctors costs and end their defensive medicine.

We needed more competition and more flexibility on what plans are allowed and we need to repeal the No-Bid status of Big Pharma and make it easier to get drugs brought to market,

But even with all that it was still better than Obamacare which fixed none of those problems, and just added new ones which RINO keeps in place.

We don't need insurance plans for healthy check ups with the doctors. We need catastrophic care insurance for when things go wrong.
'Health Insurance' is neither. Our Health is a personal responsibility, and insurance companies only exist to perpetuate their business, which is to avoid paying out things that they can get away with not paying for.

You are correct, if we pay out of pocket for normal visits, the price will go down, this is how things work, get Govt involved and the prices sky rocket, take a look at Collage, federal funding grants and loans, now if you cant get any of these collage would be a pipe dream. Get Govt out of everything and things will be affordable again.

No it wasn't fine - not at all. But getting these scumbag government criminals involved made an already bad situation worse - much like our wonderful American 'public' schools which cost more than anywhere else in the civilized world and are the very bottom of the barrel in quality of education.

I'm old enough to remember when doctors made house calls. And if you purchased insurance when you were young and healthy, your premiums didn't rise if you got an expensive health condition provided you maintained coverage, but if you had one, it either wasn't covered or you paid more for it.

And it did work well then.

David Goldhill, CEO of the Game Show Network and author of "How American Health Care Killed My Father" wrote that seniors on Medicare actually pay a greater portion of their income on health care than before Medicare existed! That shows you how much government messes up the free market and raises prices, not including all the money they've paid in Medicare taxes. It suggests abolishing Medicare would save seniors money on health care, even though it's "free". Like PJ O'Rourk observed, if you think things are expensive now, just wait until the government makes it free.

Yes. Plus administrative costs per patient are higher with Medicare than with private insurance. With ACA you have govt administrative costs AND private insurance company administrative costs. There is no way to make it work unless we cut one out of it. And judging from the poor product we get from most government employees I think it's obvious which one.

Medicare is not free.It may be affordable but payments are deducted from your SS every month.Also it's only 80/20 and only pays a certain amount for meds so you have to find a supplemental to help pay for that. After the age of 65 where would a person find a plan they could afford. http://money.cnn.com/2017/0...

Sounds like perhaps we're of a similar age. I remember those days as well. What's happened since then is that the Feds decided to get involved. The more involved they got, the worse they made it for everyone else.

Then, there was also a LOT of pro-bono type medicine being dealt out to those who needed help. Government involvement stopped that, too. Gov is also the CAUSE of high drugs...it goes on and on.

Turkish President Erdogan calls Germany out on simulated democracy

Although not the source most would equate with truthful, unbiased information, Turkey's President Erdogan may have unwittingly put his finger on Germany's central challenge when he said the following:

“Germany, you have no relation whatsoever to democracy and you should know that your current actions are no different to those of the Nazi period,” Erdogan helpfully noted. “I thought the era of Nazism was over in Germany, but now I see that it’s going on. Everything is clear.”

Mainstream and state-subsidized news outlets immediately condemned the comment and portrayed it as being ludicrous. In other words, standard operating procedure when their narrative is being threatened. To be sure, Erdogan's leadership style has been authoritarian and he's not the type of leader that immediately springs to mind when contemplating democracy, his remark does contain at least a kernel of truth and deserves to be debated honestly.

Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel told the German people outright eight years ago that they "Can't count on campaign promises made actually being fulfilled after the election.".

The Federal Republic of Germany's highest court has ruled that every election in Germany since 1965 is invalid, but that didn't change much of anything because the courts and the police apparently haven't changed their behavior accordingly. "Just following orders" wasn't allowed as a valid defense during the NAZI war trials at the Hague, so one has to wonder why those in the German government aren't more worried about repercussions for unlawful and illegal acts carried out in the color of law.
The first layer of defense for those that have hijacked the system to enrich themselves and their allies is the all too German attribut that they can easily be tricked into following orders using disinformation. As Napoleon once said "There is no more good-natured, but also no more gullible people than the Germans. No lie can be conceived treacherous enough, the Germans believe it. They follow a slogan which was given to them, to act against their own countrymen, rather than the real enemies of their country." This holds true to this day where the German government is engaged in a trade war against their own people, gouging income tax based on a 16.10.1934 law instigated by the NAZIs and signed by Adolf Hitler, an enormous 19% value added tax on all products and services as well as involuntary contracts for each household requiring people to pay fees to cover the costs of state-run television. The entire court system is built on extracting money from those unlucky enough to have to appear before a court. Rather than promoting the general order through mediating between two parties and providing a fair decision, the system is merely interested in generating revenue for the corporations that have been installed for this purpose. Every police station, city and state organ is identified in the international register as a corporation. Bundesrepublik Deutschsland Finanzagentur GmbH, a limited liability company that is only liable for some €25,000, is the corporate entity behind the €3,73 Trillion euro economy managing Federal Republic of Germany. The name Federal Republic of Germany is a moniker that was created by the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary forces and attached to the seized country after the capitulation was signed, albeit not legally, in order to get rid of the name Deutsches Reich or German Empire. Although the country was declared seized, it was not annexed, so the Basic law was instituted by SHAEF to regulate the administration of Germany by Germans subordinate to it. The basic law is generally considered by Germans to be the constitution, although the accepted definition of basic law is a legal construction to uphold order in occupied territories. The last article, Article 146, of basic law for Germany belies the fact that the basic law is indeed not a constitution with the following quote:
Article 146 [Duration of the Basic Law]
This Basic Law, which since the achievement of the unity and freedom of Germany applies to the entire German people, shall cease to apply on the day on which

    a constitution freely adopted by the German people takes effect

.

The second row of defense is the obfuscation of pertinent information while purposefully shifting the public attention to the junk-food equivalent of information management in public media. It is completely intentional that most common people have no love for or interest in the intricasies of law until, perhaps, they are faced with a situation that requires the knowledge. David Knight from Infowars remarked a day or two ago that sufficiently complicated laws are virtually the same as having no laws. His point was that when only few are capable of interpreting law, such as attorneys and judges, they can influence the outcome subtly in their interests without the common people being the wiser. This has been going on since the end of the second world war, but now that the country has been delivered into the European Union without a popular vote and virtually no say in the laws being passed at the EU level, people are starting to read the laws and are noting discrepancies between written law and general practices in dealing with the public. There is a growing number of Germans that are pushing back against the unlawful collection of fees due to an unclear legal basis.
The oath of the Bundespresident, the Chancellor and the Federal ministers;

“I swear that I will dedicate my efforts to the well-being of the German people, promote their
welfare, protect them from harm, uphold and defend the Basic Law and the laws of the Federation,
perform my duties conscientiously, and do justice to all. So help me God.”

follows the common theme of responsibilities that elected officials and state employees are expected to uphold, but ever more citizens are questioning the integrity of their representatives in the aftermath of the state-sanctioned immigration that has been forced on the Germans by the policies advanced by Chancellor Merkel and apparently supported by her political party and it's coalition partners. The oath is percieved as contradicting the practices applied to the court system daily.
People are being tried before courts that are not state courts since paragraph 15 of the constitutional court law which stated simply "All courts are state courts." was rescinded without replacement. This and other changes to laws since the reunification have created an environment where the people are losing confidence in the legal system because the inconsistencies are blatant to those that take time to inform themselves and those that defend the legal structure have run out of arguments and excuses.

This topic has been gaining momentum and there are several contemporary German heroes that are using their legal knowledge to nudge the lawmakers into reconciling the differences between conflicting laws and statutes, but it seems the needs of the EU as perceived by the German politicians have been and are still being a higher priority than the well-being of the German people. This summer, leading up to the election of a new Chancellor, you can expect to hear more about this topic, which is not only important for the German people. The Deutsche Reich, which is still at war with nearly fifty nations at least on paper, became sovereign in 1990 when the 2+4 contract between the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic was ratified, but only a few citizens of German heritage have recognized their inheritance as citizens of the Weimar Republic which allows them to be identified as members of the German state their ancestors were members of before the rise of National Socialism.

One reason the world is waiting on the German people is; without a peace treaty that ends war between the Deutsche Reich and all 47 countries, WWII lives on. This makes it legitimate for the Allied Forces to bomb anywhere in the world without congressional approval because they are still, technically, at war. That the Deutsche Reich is only a paper tiger at the moment is irrelevant.

If the German people are to establish a lasting peace and live in accordance with international law, they must first vote on and accept a new constitution for the Deutsche Reich and then arrange a peace treaty with all nations still at war with them.

Good luck

Unconfirmed reports of Russian influence in US presidential race pale in comparison to US election influencing tactics

CIA’s Gold Standard for Influencing Foreign Elections
By Bruce Fein

I would have expected more adeptness from Russian President Vladimir Putin, a former intelligence superstar in the Soviet Union’s legendary KGB.

His amateurish attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election in the United States by tasking Russian hackers to steal 20,000 emails from the servers of the Democratic National Committee and share them with WikiLeaks to embarrass Hillary Clinton and favor Donald Trump showed his talents are in decline.
