New York investigators probe President Trump

 

The state tax department launched a review Tuesday of allegations that President Trump committed fraud by dodging millions of dollars in taxes over the course of several years.

Yemen: US allies don’t defeat al-Qaida but pay it to go away

That’s because the coalition cut secret deals with al-Qaida fighters, paying some to leave key cities and towns and letting others retreat with weapons, equipment and wads of looted cash, an investigation by The Associated Press has found. Hundreds more were recruited to join the coalition itself.

The search for truth in the rubble of Douma – and one doctor’s doubts over the chemical attack

“I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night – but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a “White Helmet”, shouted “Gas!”, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”

 Swiss lab says ‘BZ toxin’ used in Salisbury, not produced in Russia, was in US & UK service

 

The substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, according to Swiss state Spiez lab, the Russian foreign minister said. The toxin was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

 

The case is a set up to frame Russia, of course.

“We get the impression that the British government is deliberately pursuing the policy of destroying all possible evidence, classifying all remaining materials and making a transparent investigation impossible,” the Russian ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko, said during a press conference on Friday.

 

The frauds continue like a freight train.

Feds interviewed New York terrorist attack suspect 2 years ago

Saipov, 29, was listed as a “point of contact” for two different men whose names were entered into the Counterrorism and Criminal Exploitation Unit’s list after they came to the US from “threat countries.” One of the two men has vanished and is actively being sought by federal agents as a “suspected terrorist.”

“The system is screwed. It’s fixed, and I hate it.”
-Greg Palast

Greg Palast has made the most important documentary of the past few years. He also posted it to Facebook to watch forfree. Three and a half thousand people saw the live stream when it aired, but that’s simply not enough. Not only has Palast produced the documentation, but he has revealed the connections: proving that election 2016 was outright stolen by the Republican/libertarian state governors financed by the Koch brothers.

Seven million minority voters were purged from voting rolls.

Palast proves the kakistocracy, or the oligarchy if you prefer, that truly corrupts every governing institution in this country. Numerous schemes are implemented to disenfranchise American voters, particularly low-income and minority voters. The film climaxes with a roundup of all the various election fraud machinations, and the propaganda lies that sell them to the ignorant. US propaganda is well-financed, and the Koch brothers are the main source in this arena.

The billionaires have been unleashed via Citizens United, and they put their bets on Donald Trump to deliver the government to their hatchet men. The game plan is to slash and burn for the next four years, to disempower citizens and to eliminate regulations or even entire cabinet departments.

Economic devastation for Americans and obscene and increased wealth accumulation for the owners, that is the plan. The contempt with which the Kochs and their ilk hold the American people is sick and depraved.

Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” con has been so successful, despite all evidence to the contrary. The swamp overflows today like a clogged up toilet, with Donald Trump’s extreme-right radical and super-rich cabinet appointees. Their agenda couldn’t be clearer, and it is class war. Shots have been fired.

Palast’s film has his over-the-top satirical stylings woven throughout. He’s a character, and he does try to make it fun. That’s a good thing, as these are complex plots, which is the reason they get away with them, that and the open bribery of high officials. The finest moments of the film are when he catches the perps directly lying, cuts to the truth, and then back for the next lie.

As Palast is capable of exposing these high crimes against our country, so we might want to ask why Barack Obama’s Justice Department (sic) did absolutely nothing about them. Nothing.

It is the rampage of the billionaires. It’s criminal. It’s ongoing. And these are not victimless crimes. It is nothing short of the rise of fascism in America. Every American needs to see the evidence. Hurry while the film is still streaming.
