The Sunday Edition (.024)

Here we are, another Sunday and another chance to reveal the truth. 23 days until the US presidential election. Who do you think will win? I think it's all fixed and it does not matter who wins. In the end, the American people will lose. Have you ever seen so much corruption in your life as Hillary Clinton and the Democrats? Or should I say Globalists?

• So, you don't believe in conspiracies. Well, did you know over a half billion dollars is shelled out annually by the Pentagon to propagandize and galvanize public support of its wars based nearly entirely on lies — because, after all, war crafted to prop up the military-industrial machine’s profiteering can indeed be a tough sell. In the latest report on Public Relations Spending from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the United States’ government PR apparatus has been revealed to spend over $1 billion annually — $626 million of which the Department of Defense allots to employ a massive propaganda army constituting roughly 40 percent of the more than 5,000-strong federal public relations workforce.

• Only In The World Of American Media Is Syria A Civil War. To the vast majority of Americans, the Syrian crisis (as well as the state of affairs in Iraq, Libya, Yemen, etc.) is merely a distant blip on a cluttered radar screen. Competing with issues affecting an individual’s daily life like wages, taxes, and free trade, that small portion of the American population who hasn’t completely zoned out of the political and current events sphere is increasingly overtaken with the necessities of survival. Those who are able to devote enough time to the Syrian crisis are confronted with an unprecedented onslaught of propaganda demonizing the Syrian government and the Syrian president as “killing his own people,” “brutal,” and “genocidal.” The Syrian people are also victims of the propaganda war as being obsessed with religion, divided, and opposed to their government.

• There are government conspiracies all around us. If you don't believe it, you are deceiving yourself. The Associated Press is the propaganda arm of the US government. One of its continuing efforts is to obfuscate the Sandy Hook shooting. A judge on Friday dismissed a wrongful-death lawsuit by Newtown families against the maker of the rifle used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre, citing an embattled federal law that shields gun manufacturers from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products.

To make it clear for those of you riding the short bus, Sandy Hook is an ongoing hoax perpetrated by the State of Connecticut and the federal government. Nobody got hurt unless you count the feelings of those who support the second amendment.

• There are a dizzying two trillion galaxies in the universe, up to 20 times more than previously thought, astronomers reported on Thursday. The surprising finding, based on 3D modeling of images collected over 20 years by the Hubble Space Telescope, was published in the Astronomical Journal.

• Minnesota's Democratic governor said Wednesday that the Affordable Care Act is "no longer affordable," a stinging critique from a state leader who strongly embraced the law just a few years ago.

Gov. Mark Dayton made the comments while addressing questions about Minnesota's fragile health insurance market, where individual plans are facing double-digit increases after all insurers threatened to exit the market entirely in 2017.

They follow cost concerns and criticism nationwide, including President Bill Clinton saying last week that the law was "the craziest thing in the world" before he backtracked.

"The reality is the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable for increasing numbers of people," Dayton said, calling on Congress to fix the law to address rising costs and market stability.

• Do you believe American citizens have certain unalienable rights given by nature (or God, if you prefer) and that the laws of men are simply interpretations of natural law? Or maybe you're a progressive and you think people could live comfortably in huts and chains?

• Up to half of the tens of thousands of U.S.-funded Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) troops deployed to combat terrorism in southern Afghanistan’s volatile Helmand province “do not exist,” notes a U.S. watchdog agency appointed by Congress, citing the province’s police chief.

Nevertheless, all Afghan security forces are getting paid with U.S. taxpayer funds, including the nonexistent ones.

In an August 5 letter addressed to the U.S. Secretary of Defense and published on Friday, which marked the 15th year of the Afghanistan war, the U.S. Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), the watchdog, highlighted the problems of “ghost” service members within the ANDSF.

Overall, the letter suggested that of the 319,595 members of the ANDSF, which includes police and army units, nearly 200,000 do not exist.

Bob "Nobel Prize" Dylan
• US music legend Bob Dylan, whose poetic lyrics have influenced generations of fans, won the Nobel Literature Prize on Thursday, the first songwriter to win the award in a decision that stunned prize watchers.

The 75-year-old was honored "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition", the Swedish Academy said.

The choice was met by gasps and a long round of spontaneous applause from journalists attending the prize announcement. The folk rock singer had been mentioned in Nobel speculation over the years, but was never seen as a serious contender.

• U.S. Congresswoman Kay Granger was the first member of the Republican delegation from North Texas to call for Donald Trump to end his presidential campaign.

Kay "Insurance Lady" Granger
Reacting to news bias against Trump, Granger said, “We have heard rumors about the insensitive and vulgar things Mr. Trump says about women, but watching that video is disgusting.” What is truly disgusting is that the Republicansw have done absolutely nothing to stop the march toward global communism and the loss of liberty here in the US. So, who really cares what kay Granger says about Donald Trump. She is merely parroting Republican party dictates in any case. Be a good little party hack, Kay. Now go away and be irrelevant again.

Granger joins a growing list of Republican leaders who are not supporting their party’s nominee. The establishment does not want Trump to be president. That includes mainstream news media. As you can see, it's not a fair fight but Trump said he will continue his campaign.

• A significant portion of online support for Hillary Clinton is manufactured by paid “astroturf” trolls: a large team of supporters who spends long hours responding to negative news on the internet about her. The Clinton SuperPAC Correct the Record, which is affiliated with her campaign, acknowledged in an April press release that it was spending $1 million on project “Breaking Barriers” to pay people to respond to negative information about Clinton on social media sites like Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and Twitter. That amount has since increased to over $6 million. The trolls create a false impression that Clinton has more support than she really does, because one supporter will frequently create multiple anonymous accounts.

Libby Watson of The Sunlight Foundation observed that the astroturf effort goes far beyond merely defending Clinton, to targeting and intimidating those who criticize her. She told The Daily Beast, “This seems to be going after essentially random individuals online.”

Brian Donahue, chief executive of the consulting firm Craft Media/Digital, explained the troll operation to The Los Angeles Times, “It is meant to appear to be coming organically from people and their social media networks in a groundswell of activism, when in fact it is highly paid and highly tactical.” He went on, “That is what the Clinton campaign has always been about. It runs the risk of being exactly what their opponents accuse them of being: a campaign that appears to be populist but is a smokescreen that is paid and brought to you by lifetime political operatives and high-level consultants.”

• A CNN panelist dismissed Bill Clinton’s documented history of sexual abuse against women as “conspiracy theory land” Monday during a discussion about Sunday night’s presidential debate.

Appearing on New Day, CNN’s Jackie Kucinich, who also works for The Daily Beast, said that any accusation of Bill Clinton committing sexual abuse, or of Hillary threatening his victims to keep quiet, come “straight out of conspiracy theory land.”

When co-host Chris Cuomo said it was ‘ironic’ that Trump was taking responsibility for his words, while neither Clinton has acknowledged the abuse accusations, Kucinich was triggered.

“No. Hillary Clinton — Bill Clinton is not on the ballot. Hillary Clinton is on the ballot. A lot of the things that Trump says about the ’90s, about Bill Clinton, comes straight out of conspiracy theory land, things that are in — at Klein’s book, things that Roger Stone says. So, no, I don’t think it matters.” Kucinich responded.

Once again, conspiracy theories are all around us. Why? Because the truth is, business and government conspires daily to manipulate reality, or at least what we consider to be the appearance of reality.

• In a related news item, initial findings showed the small plane crash that killed a Jordanian national and injured another man in Connecticut was “an intentional act,” The National Transportation Safety Board announced in a statement Wednesday, adding that the FBI would the lead in the investigation with the NTSB assisting. The unnamed man who survived the crash Tuesday afternoon also told investigators the wreck was not an accident, East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc told The Associated Press. That man was in critical condition at Bridgeport Hospital, but was able to speak to detectives, officials said.

• Prosecutors said Tuesday they will charge Sheriff Joe Arpaio with criminal contempt-of-court for defying a judge's orders to end his signature immigration patrols in Arizona, exposing the 84-year-old lawman to the possibility of jail time.

The announcement in federal court sets in motion criminal proceedings against the sheriff less than a month before Election Day as he seeks a seventh term as Maricopa County sheriff. The 2016 election cycle has also seen Arpaio take a prominent role on the national stage, appearing alongside Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on several occasions.

A judge previously recommended criminal contempt charges against Arpaio but left it up to federal prosecutors to actually bring the case. Prosecutor John Keller said in court that the government will bring charges, with the next step being a court filing possibly in the next day that's akin to a criminal complaint.

Arpaio could face up to six months in jail if convicted of misdemeanor contempt.

• The 2016 Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to David Thouless from the University of Washington, Duncan Haldane from Princeton University, and to Michael Kosterlitz from Brown University for “opening the door on an unknown world where matter can assume strange states”.

Their work involved using the mathematical field of topology to look at unusual states of matter, such as superconductors and superfluids.

In topology, the goal is to describe shapes and structures by some fundamental characteristics, like the number of holes. So topologically speaking, a mug is the same as a bagel, as they both have one hole, but a pretzel is different because it has two.

It’s hoped that their work will give rise to new developments in material science and electronics, including in quantum computing.

On hearing the news, Haldane said that he “was very surprised and very gratified” to win the prize. Much of the work took place in the 1970s and 80s, but Haldane said that “it’s only now that lots of tremendous discoveries based on this work are now happening.”

In the 1980s, the consensus was that superconductivity – when the electrical resistance of a material is zero – could not occur in thin layers, but Thouless and Kosterlitz showed that was wrong and used topology to explain why.

They found that thin conductive layers could actually appear in materials by taking the form of discrete topological steps, where going up one step is like changing from a bagel to a pretzel.

Using the same ideas, Duncan Haldane was able to explain the magnetic properties of some materials. Initially, the work “seemed very abstract” said Haldane, but as time went by more and more properties could be explained by topology.

Strange stories coming out of Boston.
• Accused Boston Cop-Shooter Served as a Local Constable. Did you hear that the man accused of critically wounding two Boston police officers and injuring several others served as a constable in that city for nearly six months.

Boston Police towed a Ford Crown Victoria from the home of accused shooter Kirk Figueroa, 33, on Thursday morning. A photo of Figueroa wearing a military-style red beret was found on the website, according to the Boston Globe. The Crown Victoria bore the Elite Policing’s web address.

A search reveals a link to a “Founder Biography” that shows Figueroa’s claim of being an Army Reservist assigned to the 306th Military Police Battalion. He claimed to have served from 2008 until 2010.

City Council minutes note that Figueroa was confirmed as a constable by the council on April 13 after he completed a background investigation conducted by the Boston Police Department, the Globe reported. In Boston, constables are licensed to serve legal papers regarding lawsuits.

A 2006 article states that constables in Boston carry badges and have arrest authority. The article also notes that half of the then-186 constables had been arrested in the past. The city now has about 150 constables.

A motive for the shooting, if known, has yet to be released by investigating officials.

No blood, no pix, no crime. They're lying to us. Again.
Figueroa also claims to have been a licensed private investigator by the State of Florida. He also claims to have earned a diploma in private investigations from the University of North Texas. He further claims to have been a correctional officer with the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety. He reported to be a “Certified Homeland Protection Professional” with the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition. Finally, Figueroa claims to be a California bounty hunter and mixed martial arts practitioner.

After Figueroa shot the two Boston police officers, other officers rushed into the line of fire to pull them out of the house where they could begin first aid. These actions likely saved the lives of the two downed officers. One officer reportedly stuck his finger in a gunshot wound to stop or slow the bleeding.

One of the officers was shot in the upper body while the other was shot in the leg, the Boston Globe reported.

I wonder if the Boston news report is true. Something tells me it's not. Okay, all you pundits, good luck this week sifting through the lies and disinformation. Remember, freedom is what matters -- your own freedom, not some Somali war lord. have a great week and thanks for reading!

EDIT: Almost forgot! One more comment -- when I watched Hillary in the debate, I recognized she was not being herself and came to the conclusion rather quickly that her handlers had given her something to give her energy, make her mind snappy, like cocaine or amphetamines. Look, maybe you don't recognize the symptoms, but I do. Hillary was flying. Timothy Leary's dead; no, no, he's outside, looking in...
