from True Pundit:
In early May, we introduced readers to Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst who uncovered financial discrepancies at General Electric before its stock crashed in 2008, and whom the Sunday Times of London described as “one of the finest analysts of financial statements on the planet” in a 2009 story detailing the troubles at AIG. Having moved on beyond simple corporate fraud, Ortel spent the past year and a half digging into something more relevant to the current US situation:”charities”, and specifically the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures.
Folks who watch Ortell on Jason Goodman’s CrowdSource the Truth weekly know the massive amount of investigative work and analysis he has dedicated to exposing the frauds at the Clinton Foundation.

After a certain length of time examining history in-depth, anyone who is honest and relatively objective comes to understand that most of what we are told about our past in the mainstream is completely fabricated. We learn that much of “history” is not about posterity or heritage and more about a continuous set of false narratives peppered with half-truths. That is to say, what we thought we knew is actually lies.
Unfortunately, these lies can be complex, to the point that even many alternative researchers get caught up in their own biases to the point that they lose track of reality. Of course, this is what propaganda and 4th generation warfare is meant to accomplish; it creates a series of filters that thin out the crowd of truth seekers a little at a time. Those few who make it through to the other side might discover the bigger picture, but when they turn around to explain what they have seen there’s hardly anyone left to listen.
by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:
Greedscam was on the TeeVee once again talking about the “entitlement problem.”
And as before he was lying.
Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are always lumped together when talking about “entitlements.” But they are not the same thing and they are not equally troubled. In fact Social Security ex the disability scam isn’t in much trouble at all. Yes, the fund will draw down its Treasury holdings. So what? And very modest changes — such as raising the income cap on FICA tax — will allow it to get through the “pig-in-the-python” period with the Boomers, after which reserves will begin rising again.
Those are facts.
Voter forms with citizenship checkbox marked “Yes” sent to noncitizens, says media
The Texas Democratic Party is asking noncitizens to register to vote and is even sending out applications to immigrants with the citizenship checkbox marked “Yes,” according to legal complaints filed Thursday.
The Texas secretary of state’s office has received “a pretty large number” of reports from immigrants and from relatives of dead people who were mailed applicants asking them to register, the Washington Times reported.

Joel Bowman: G’day, Doug. Where in the world are you these days?
Doug Casey: I’ve crossed the Plate River from Buenos Aires, and am now in the backward, but pleasant, little socialist country of Uruguay.
JB: Last time we spoke, you were warning readers about how “The West” is dangerously embracing the very same ideas that led to much – if not most – of the vast suffering and misery we saw in the 20th century: the whole suite of collectivist ideas, essentially.
I felt this acutely as I travelled through Brussels – “Europe’s Capital” as it’s sometimes known – a few weeks ago. You can feel a fundamental shift in attitudes there.
from Neon Revolt:
I have a little confession to make, Anons.
Keep in mind, I never chose the name for myself, but… it stuck. And more importantly, it worked. Because what I’ve stumbled across, as a result of so much digging, is a deep state apparatus that is so well hidden, and so nefarious, it’s hard to comprehend.
After all, what did I always promise you?
from Activist Post:
A recent Reuters article reveals that ST Engineering has been awarded $5.5 million to install facial recognition street lights in Singapore.
ST’s smart street lights come equipped with sensors, LED screens and covert cameras already installed.
Incredibly, ST claims their spying street lights can bring “healthcare benefits to residents.”
