‘Europe signals discontent with Russian sanctions, US moves to strengthen propaganda’

$20 million over the next two fiscal years will be made available in the form of grants to unspecified people in Europe who will presumable carry stories that are more in line with US policy, Jim Jatras, former US diplomat, told RT. US lawmakers have introduced a new bill aimed at preventing alleged efforts to subvert democracy. In particular, they want to create a new body, to counter so-called ‘disinformation’ spread by Russia and China. RT:Is there any factual basis that this legislation is based on? Or is it just legislators blowing hot air?  Jim Jatras: I don’t think...

Mexico warns of repercussions if remittances are blocked

by Tracy Wilkinson If a new U.S. administration blocks the flow of remittances — the estimated $20 billion that Mexicans working in the U.S. send home each year —  then joint efforts to stop money laundering and other illicit forms of finance will be dealt a dangerous setback, a senior Mexican official warned Thursday. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has vowed, if elected, to make Mexico pay to build a wall along the entire southwest border, even if it means impounding remittance payments. Fernando Aportela, Mexico’s deputy secretary for finance, said any attempt to seize remittances would force… View Article

Mark Carney can **** right off back to Canada

by James Delingpole Mark Carney was imported from his native Canada to become Britain’s Bank of England governor on an £874,000 salary for one reason and one reason only: to serve as the creature of Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne. George Osborne has decided to stake his political future on Britain voting to remain a member of the European Union. So naturally, his Dobby the Maple Leaf House Elf over at the Bank of England felt obliged to serve his master yesterday by declaring – entirely independently, of course, and without prejudice – that if Britain were to vote for Brexit...

FBI Head: Hillary Email Case Is An Investigation, Not A ‘Security Review’

“We’re conducting an investigation … That’s what we do.” Steve Watson While Hillary Clinton has consistently denied that she is under ‘investigation’ over the email scandal, the head of the FBI has made it abundantly clear that she most certainly is. Clinton and her aides have attempted over and over again to downplay the case as a ‘security review’ or some routine check being conducted by the Bureau. However, FBI Director James Comey told reporters that Hillary’s wording is completely inaccurate. “It’s in our name. I’m not familiar with the term ‘security inquiry,’ ” Comey said during a meeting with...

Islam is Constitutionally Illegal in Hungary

John S. Roberts Donald Trump only called for a moratorium on all Muslims entering the country, and he was pilloried by the lamestream media. Hungary, on the other hand, isn’t playing around. From GP: [Hungarian President] Viktor Orban: The Founding Treaty of the EU clearly declares that the EU is made up of its member states. And the European institutions must serve the cooperation of the member states. Today in practice it is the other way around. One has the impression that the Eu is made up of its institutions and the Member States are being required to assist these… The...

Air Force Whistleblower Says Benghazi Victims Could’ve Been Saved

John S. Roberts I have a good feeling that Hillary Clinton will be calling this Air Force whistleblower a liar any day now, just as she did with the Benghazi victims’ families. From WZ via Washington Examiner: An Air Force whistleblower says his team could have provided reinforcements to the Americans under attack in Benghazi in September 2012, contrary to the Obama administration’s claims that the military provided the maximum possible support for the embattled diplomatic staff. “I definitely believe that our aircraft could have taken off and got there in a timely manner, maybe three hours at the...
