No More Pay to Play? Australia Halts All Clinton Foundation Funds. Get short URL © AP Photo/ Charlie Neibergall On Tuesday, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop announced to the joint party room that agreements with the Foundation previously set up by the Rudd-Gillard government had not been renewed.
“[Former Prime Minister Julia] Gillard also donated $300 million of our money to the Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education,” Australian newspaper the Herald Sun wrote in an October article titled, “Why have we donated to Clinton’s foundation?” The Foundation, set up by the former first family of the United States, has received large amounts in donations from foreign governments, leading many to question whether it was part of a pay-to-play scheme during the former first lady’s tenure as US Secretary of State. Disparities in the amount of funds given to the Foundation by the Australian government have raised eyebrows. Native American Tribes Say They'll Stop Trump from Building His Wall. November 18, 2016 | Derrick Broze (ANTIMEDIA) As we approach the era of Emperor Trump, the American public is waiting to see if he will bring change or more of the same (spoiler: it will be more of the same violence, theft, war, and division).
For the last year, President-Elect Trump has made a number of promises. Some border on fascist while others were likely just pandering in an attempt to win disenfranchised voters. One of Trump’s more controversial proposals has been his call for a border wall that would stretch 1000-miles and rise 40 to 50 feet into the air. Trump will more than likely reverse his call for a border wall (as he has already begun to do with his vows to end Obamacare), but if he does attempt to go through with the plan, he will face opposition from a native community based in Arizona and Mexico.
At one point, the Tohono O’odham Nation ran north past Phoenix, Arizona, down to Sonora, Mexico, west to the Gulf of California, and east to the San Pedro River. Does Trump need to prosecute Clinton? US President-elect Donald Trump does not need to further humiliate the Clinton family, says an American analyst, arguing that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s election defeat was punishment enough.
Joe Lauria, an author and investigative journalist based in New York, told Press TV on Wednesday that Trump did not want to inflict any additional embarrassment upon Hillary and Bill Clinton. the former President of the United States. In an apparent contrast with the incendiary rhetoric he used throughout his presidential campaign, Trump said Tuesday that he would not prosecute Hillary Clinton over her email case, arguing that the former secretary of state has already “suffered greatly.” Donations To The Clinton Foundation Plummet As Family's Political Clout Evaporates.

Dakota Access pipeline protester 'may lose her arm' after police standoff. A 21-year-old woman was severely injured and may lose her arm after being hit by a projectile when North Dakota law enforcement officers turned a water cannon on Dakota Access pipeline protesters and threw “less-than-lethal” weapons, according to the woman’s father.
Sophia Wilansky was one of several hundred protesters injured during the standoff with police on Sunday on a bridge near the site where the pipeline is planned to cross under the Missouri river. Graphic photographs of her injured arm with broken bones visible were circulated on social media. “The best-case scenario is no pain and 10-20% functionality,” said Wayne Wilansky, Sophia’s father, who travelled to Minneapolis where his daughter underwent eight hours of surgery on Monday. "Emotionally F**king Pissed" Media Blows Embargo And Lashes Out At Trump - "F*ck Him" Just yesterday Trump called a summit of all the major mainstream media executives and anchors at Trump Tower.
While many expected the meeting to be an oppotunity to ask questions of the president-elect, the media elites apparently got the surprise of their lives when Trump spent the majority of the meeting attacking they're blatant biased coverage the 2016 presidential elections referring to the room as a bunch of "dishonest, deceitful liars. " Donald Trump’s presidency as branding venture: The scam goes even deeper than we thought. One of the odder events of 2016’s very odd presidential campaign was Donald Trump’s pilgrimage to an event held by the Republican Hindu Coalition in Edison, New Jersey, during the last weeks of the presidential campaign.
It’s not as if he made other forms of outreach to small ethnic or religious minorities, and this event seemed like a particularly obscure one for a campaign concentrated on big rallies in battleground states. Well, we may know the primary reason now: It was revealed over the weekend that the president-elect has been holding Trump Organization business meetings during the transition, and one of his meetings was with Indian developers with whom he has some luxury apartment deals cooking in Mumbai.
The New York Times reported: “We will see a tremendous jump in valuation in terms of the second tower,” said Pranav R. Bhakta, a consultant who helped Mr. 53 Years After JFK Assassination and CIA Admits this Conspiracy THEORY is Actually FACT. Shortly after noon on November 22, 1963, President John F.
Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas. It’s been 53 years since the assassination. Since that fateful November day, conspiracy theories have abounded. However, when we sift through the disinformation and look at only verifiable facts, we find no need for theories — as the conspiracy was a fact. In 2015, while the world debated the Kardashians and Miss Universe, the CIA quietly declassified a report showing that former CIA director John McCone was complicit in withholding information regarding the assassination– a de facto conspiracy.
“If the commission did not know to ask about covert operations about Cuba, he was not going to give them any suggestions about where to look,” the CIA report notes. US hypocritically backing Saudi war on Yemen’ While Saudi Arabia has resumed airstrikes against the Yemeni people after end of a two-day ceasefire, reports say the United States is working to have the cessation of hostilities remain in place.

Get short URL "Today Lockheed Martin and Air Force aircraft maintenance teams completed repairs on the last of 13 F-35As requiring modifications to avionics coolant tubes inside aircraft fuel tanks, and all affected F-35As have returned to normal flying operations," Defense News quoted a statement on Friday by Air Force spokesman Capt.

Initially, 15 operational F-35s were affected, while 42 additional airplanes still in production were found to have faulty insulation as well. Lockheed Martin first began repairs with Air Force maintenance workers in early October, and the F-35s were returned to service after having holes cut into their wings to remove the defective insulation. Trump Uppercuts The Globalists! ... But There's Bad News Too - Ron Paul Liberty Report. Digging Deep. UK politicians approve 'extreme surveillance' law - News from Al Jazeera.
The British parliament has given a green light to new bulk surveillance powers for police and intelligence services that critics have denounced as the most far-reaching of any western democracy. The Investigatory Powers Bill, which was passed on Thursday, would, among other measures, require websites to keep customers' browsing history for up to a year and allow law enforcement agencies access to help with investigations. Edward Snowden, former US National Security Agency contractor-turned-whistle-blower, said the powers "went further than many autocracies". "The UK has just legalised the most extreme surveillance in the history of western democracy," he said on Twitter. The bill, the first major update of British surveillance laws for 15 years, was passed by the House of Lords and now only needs rubber-stamping by Queen Elizabeth II. Jim Killock, executive director of digital campaigners Open Rights Group, warned that the impact of the legislation would reach beyond Britain.
State Dept Awkwardly Struggles to Explain Difference Between Bombings in Syria and Yemen [Watch] Well, that could have gone better... During a media briefing in the US capital a few days ago, State Department spokesperson John Kirby struggled to respond to questions regarding the difference for Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign in Yemen, which the US supports, and Russia’s bombing campaign in Syria, which the US condemns.
Both have led to civilian loss of life. Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen has killed over 10,000 people, a majority of them civilians, since early 2015 while Russian airstrikes have claimed the lives of 1,700 in the past year. The US itself has also caused tremendous loss of civilian life in Syria. A group of independent journalists found that just one week’s worth of US airstrikes had killed 459 civilians, with more than 100 of those being children.

The American Military's Real Problem: Shooting 'Ants' With 'Elephant Guns'
Submitted by Tobias Burgers via Strategic-Culture.org, In combating asymmetric threats, we have to ask ourselves, on which side of the asymmetry do we sit? Typically and almost in a cliché manner, we depict our side as superior – we have the technology, we have the equipment, we have the on-going development capabilities. But do we really have the money for such high-end, extended, near-endless military campaigns?
'Extreme surveillance' becomes UK law with barely a whimper. A bill giving the UK intelligence agencies and police the most sweeping surveillance powers in the western world has passed into law with barely a whimper, meeting only token resistance over the past 12 months from inside parliament and barely any from outside. The Investigatory Powers Act, passed on Thursday, legalises a whole range of tools for snooping and hacking by the security services unmatched by any other country in western Europe or even the US.
The security agencies and police began the year braced for at least some opposition, rehearsing arguments for the debate. In the end, faced with public apathy and an opposition in disarray, the government did not have to make a single substantial concession to the privacy lobby.
