It’s almost every day now. America is under siege. Obama say, “Fore!” Kerry say, “Inshallah!” And those of us who have sounded the alarm about this for so many years are demonized, smeared and marginalized.

“Kansas man accused of plotting to detonate bomb at Fort Riley military base,” Fox News, April 10, 2015 (thanks to Christian):

A 20-year-old Kansas man plotted to kill American soldiers with a vehicle bomb at the Fort Riley military base, an attack he planned to carry out on behalf of the ISIS terror group, prosecutors announced Friday.

John T. Booker, also known as Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, was arrested as part of a lengthy FBI investigation. Federal authorities said he was arrested near the army base in Manhattan, Kansas, as he completed final preparations to detonate the bomb, which had, in fact, been rendered inert while he was under FBI surveillance.

“As alleged in the complaint, John Booker attempted to attack U.S. military personnel on U.S. soil purportedly in the name of (ISIS),” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “Thanks to the efforts of the law enforcement community, we were able to safely disrupt this threat to the brave men and women who serve our country. Protecting American lives by identifying and bringing to justice those who wish to harm U.S. citizens remains the National Security Division’s number one priority.”

Prosecutors said Booker repeatedly stated he wanted to engage in violent jihad on behalf of ISIS. He became an Army recruit and said he intended to commit an insider attack against American soldiers, like Major Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood in Texas.

Booker is the latest among a number of ISIS sympathizers who have been arrested by the FBI in recent weeks.

A criminal complaint unsealed Friday charged Booker with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives), one count of attempting to damage property by means of an explosive and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

He was due to appear Friday afternoon in federal court in Topeka.

The criminal complaint Friday alleged that Booker spent months developing and attempting to execute a plan that would result in his own death as an ISIS suicide bomber. It also alleged that he “planned to pull the trigger of the explosives himself so that he would die in the explosion,” Kansas U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said at a news conference.

“I want to assure the public there was never any breach of Fort Riley Military Base, nor was the safety or the security of the base or its personnel ever at risk,” said Kansas City FBI Special Agent in Charge Eric Jackson. “Recently the Command Staff at Fort Riley has been working hand in hand with law enforcement to ensure the utmost security and protection for the men and women who serve our country, and the surrounding community that supports the base.”

Booker allegedly plotted to construct an explosive device for attack on American soil for months during meetings with two FBI informants. He told one killing Americans was permissible because the Koran “says to kill your enemies wherever they are.”

Prosecutors said the jihadi wannabe advanced the plot by acquiring components for a vehicle bomb, producing a propaganda video and renting a storage locker to store components for the explosive device.

Prosecutors said he identified Fort Riley as the target and talked about his commitment to trigger the device himself and become a jihadi martyr.

His arrest came behind the wheel of a van he belived was packed with 1,000 pounds of explosive.

Last year FoxNews.com reported exclusively that Booker was under investigation for threatening online to commit a “Fort Hood-inspired” act of terror just weeks away from reporting for basic training.

The military learned of his radicalism – which had apparently been on display for months in online posts where he praised Usama bin Laden and pledged to die for radical Islam.

FoxNews.com reported then that Booker was the subject of an FBI alert.

“Getting ready to be killed in jihad is a HUGE adrenaline rush! I am so nervous,” read a March 19. 2014 post on the Facebook page authorities believe belonged to Booker. “NOT because I’m scared to die but I am EAGER to meet my lord.”

FoxNews.com reported Booker enlisted in the Army in February 2014 and was due to report for basic training less than two months later on April 7. But the FBI interviewed him in March and alerted the Army, which formally discharged him.

Our troops are being sacrificed to the politically correct refusal to state the truth about Islam.

Another senseless shooting because the Obama administration refuses to acknowledge the motive and ideology of jihadic doctrine. How are our soldiers supposed to distinguish the jihadists from people on our side?

Worse still, the Department of Defense lies about these murders in order to prop up their failed policy.

Our boys and girls in Afghanistan are sitting ducks.

Afghanistan: US Military in Southern Afghanistan

“Afghan soldier shoots, wounds 3 US troops in insider attack,” by Lynne O’Donnell and Rahim Faiez, Associated Press, April 8, 2015:

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An Afghan soldier opened fire on U.S. troops in Afghanistan on Wednesday, wounding three before he was shot dead by American troops, an official and an eyewitness said.

The incident happened after a meeting between Afghan provincial leaders and a U.S. Embassy official in the compound of the provincial governor in the city of Jalalabad, according to Gen. Fazel Ahmad Sherzad.

U.S. officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

It is the second insider attack this year. An Afghan soldier killed three American contractors on January 29. The shooter was also killed in that incident.

Sherzad, who is police chief for eastern Nangarhar province, said the incident happened immediately after the meeting and the embassy official has left.

“Right after the U.S. official had left, suddenly an Afghan army soldier opened fire on the U.S. soldiers who were present in the compound,” Sherzad told The Associated Press.

The American troops returned fire, killing the Afghan soldier, whom Sherzad identified as Abdul Azim, from Laghman province.

The motive for his attack was not immediately known.

Information was sketchy and an eyewitness told the AP that four U.S. troops had been wounded in the attack — not three as Sherzad said — and were being treated at a clinic on the American base in Jalalabad.

The witness, an Afghan interpreter working with the U.S. troops, said that no U.S. soldiers had died in the incident.

“Only the ANA (Afghan National Army) soldier died, we killed him straight away,” said the witness, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to media.

Earlier, an Afghan official said two people were killed and three wounded in an ambush late Tuesday aimed at police in eastern Kunar province, where the Taliban have a strong presence.

Farid Dhekhan, the spokesman for the provincial police chief, said the attack, which occurred in Narang district, targeted a police vehicle, which escaped unharmed. The dead were a man and woman from the same family, Dhekhan said, speaking on Wednesday….

Wow. Jewish Rabbi Compares Obama to 1 of the Most Evil Men in the Bible… Refuses to Apologize

Rabbi Shlomo Riskin recently compared President Barack Obama to the biblical villain Haman from the book of Esther. According to Rabbi Riskin, Obama “is causing Israel to be existentially endangered” in his pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran.

The rabbi has since backed off slightly from his earlier rhetoric, saying, “Let me make it very clear: Haman is not, God forbid, President Obama.”

“Haman is Iran. My problem is President Obama seems to be making a deal that is very problematic with that Haman, and at the same time leaving Israel without a protector.”

But in a speech Saturday night at Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue, Riskin did compare Obama to Haman, the villain of the book of Esther who plots, unsuccessfully, to kill Persia’s Jews.

“The president of the United States is lashing out at Israel, just like Haman lashed out at all the Jews,” Riskin said in the speech. “And I’m not making a political statement. That’s okay. I’m trying to make a Jewish statement.”

His statements on Saturday were condemned by the North American Jewish organization, T’ruah, which began an online petition calling for an apology from Riskin.

Riskin bowed to the pressure on Wednesday, and released a statement that he had intended to only compare the relationship between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the hate between Haman and Mordechai, the Jewish hero in the book of Esther (H/T Forward).

But we think he got it right the first time.

Share this if you think Riskin was right the first time — President Obama shows more respect for terrorists than for Israel.

Earth’s Magnetic Field Flip Could Happen Sooner Than Expected

Earth’s Magnetic Field Flip Could Happen Sooner Than Expected

Changes measured by the Swarm satellite show that our magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster than originally predicted, especially over the Western Hemisphere

Earth’s magnetic field, which protects the planet from huge blasts of deadly solar radiation, has been weakening over the past six months, according to data collected by a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite array called Swarm.

The biggest weak spots in the magnetic field — which extends 370,000 miles (600,000 kilometers) above the planet’s surface — have sprung up over the Western Hemisphere, while the field has strengthened over areas like the southern Indian Ocean, according to the magnetometers onboard the Swarm satellites — three separate satellites floating in tandem.

The scientists who conducted the study are still unsure why the magnetic field is weakening, but one likely reason is that Earth’s magnetic poles are getting ready to flip, said Rune Floberghagen, the ESA’s Swarm mission manager. In fact, the data suggest magnetic north is moving toward Siberia.

“Such a flip is not instantaneous, but would take many hundred if not a few thousand years,” Floberghagen told Live Science. “They have happened many times in the past.”[50 Amazing Facts About Planet Earth]

Scientists already know that magnetic north shifts. Once every few hundred thousand years the magnetic poles flip so that a compass would point south instead of north. While changes in magnetic field strength are part of this normal flipping cycle, data from Swarm have shown the field is starting to weaken faster than in the past. Previously, researchers estimated the field was weakening about 5 percent per century, but the new data revealed the field is actually weakening at 5 percent per decade, or 10 times faster than thought. As such, rather than the full flip occurring in about 2,000 years, as was predicted, the new data suggest it could happen sooner.

Floberghagen hopes that more data from Swarm will shed light on why the field is weakening faster now.

Still, there is no evidence that a weakened magnetic field would result in a doomsday for Earth. During past polarity flips there were no mass extinctions or evidence of radiation damage. Researchers think power grids and communication systems would be most at risk.

Earth’s magnetic field acts like a giant invisible bubble that shields the planet from the dangerous cosmic radiation spewing from the sun in the form of solar winds. The field exists because Earth has a giant ball of iron at its core surrounded by an outer layer of molten metal. Changes in the core’s temperature and Earth’s rotation boil and swirl the liquid metal around in the outer core, creating magnetic field lines.

The movement of the molten metal is why some areas of the magnetic field strengthen while others weaken, Florberghagen said. When the boiling in one area of the outer core slows down, fewer currents of charged particles are released, and the magnetic field over the surface weakens.

“The flow of the liquid outer core almost pulls the magnetic field around with it,” Floberghagen said. “So, a field weakening over the American continent would mean that the flow in the outer core below America is slowing down.”

The Swarm satellites not only pick up signals coming from the Earth’s magnetic field, but also from its core, mantle, crust and oceans. Scientists at the ESA hope to use the data to make navigation systems that rely on the magnetic field, such as aircraft instruments, more accurate, improve earthquake predictions and pinpoint areas below the planet’s surface that are rich in natural resources. Scientists think fluctuations in the magnetic field could help identify where continental plates are shifting and help predict earthquakes.

These first results from Swarm were presented at the Third Swarm Science Meeting in Denmark on June 19.

Psychological Warfare: US Fights ISIS…While Aiding ISIS

us-war-terror-isis-aid1.si

As the war against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) rages on, the US has stepped up its air campaign, combining destructive bombs with anti-ISIS leaflets.

But while US propaganda efforts are ostensibly aimed at disrupting ISIS recruitment, overall US involvement has yielded mixed results at best.

On the one hand, Washington is engaging in a psychological campaign designed to dissuade potential ISIS fighters from joining up, with leaflets depicting grisly images of young men being sent into a meat grinder. On the other hand however, the US continues to exacerbate the situation in both Iraq and Syria by providing material support, both directly and indirectly, to the very groups whom they claim to be fighting.

While the US seems to be engaged in a psychological war against ISIS, it is equally involved in a systematic campaign of sabotage against those forces that are actually fighting ISIS on the ground. And so, as it often does, Washington is playing both sides of the conflict in order to achieve an outcome to its own political advantage, and to the detriment of Syria, Iran, and other interested parties.

The US psychological war against ISIS

Since the emergence of ISIS on the world stage, much has been made of the organization’s ability to recruit fighters, produce propaganda, and effectively get its message across to the young Muslims around the world. There have been countless news stories of Muslim youths from the West eagerly joining up to fight in far flung war zones like Syria and Iraq, seemingly translating their disaffection with their own lives into an ideological identification with ISIS extremism.

But beneath the surface of such ideological explanations is the fact, publicly acknowledged by many counter-terrorism experts, that ISIS propaganda, coupled with the financial benefits the organization offers, is responsible for some of the allure of joining the fight. And so, the US has launched a full scale psychological war for the “hearts and minds” of these naïve youths and poverty-stricken potential fighters.

The Pentagon confirmed that they had dropped tens of thousands of leaflets on the Syrian city of Raqqa in an attempt to dissuade potential recruits from joining ISIS. While this may seem a relatively harmless exercise in counter-propaganda, the reality is that it is at best a poorly conceived, and at worst utterly disingenuous, attempt to counteract ISIS recruitment. Were the US serious about eradicating the cancer of ISIS in Syria, US military officials would be coordinating with their Syrian counterparts in a comprehensive attempt to destroy the organization. For while the US Air Force drops leaflets, the Syrian Arab Army has been fighting ISIS on the ground for nearly three years, paying a very high price in blood to protect its country from the internationally constituted terror organization.

US military planners understand perfectly that it is the Syrian military, not slick propaganda leaflets, which will carry the day in the war against ISIS in Syria. While perhaps useful for the public relations campaign back home, such leaflets will do little to change the tactical or strategic situation on the ground. The same goes for the recently announced expansion of the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications, the State Department’s attempt at “counter-messaging” ISIS propaganda on social media and in cyberspace generally.

But, while the US presents itself as pursuing a comprehensive psychological war against ISIS, its military and covert actions tell a far different story.

Fighting ISIS by arming them?

The media has been abuzz in recent months with numerous accounts of US weapons and other supplies falling directly into the hands of ISIS, providing the terror group with invaluable material support at a time when it had suffered heavy losses in both Syria and Iraq. As Naeem al-Uboudi, the spokesman for one of the main groups fighting ISIS in Tikrit told the NY Times, “We don’t trust the American-led coalition in combating ISIS… In the past, they have targeted our security forces and dropped aid to ISIS by mistake.”

Indeed, these allegations are supported dozens of accounts of airdropped US weapons being seized by ISIS. As Iraqi MP Majid al-Ghraoui noted in January,

“The information that has reached us in the security and defense committee indicates that an American aircraft dropped a load of weapons and equipment to the ISIS group militants at the area of al-Dour in the province of Salahuddin… This incident is continuously happening and has also occurred in some other regions.”

Whether these incidents are simply honest mistakes by the vaunted US military with all its precision bombing capabilities, or they are indications of a more callous attempt to inflict casualties on all sides and prolong the regional war, either way they represent an abject failure of the US strategy against ISIS. But of course, the US policy failure goes much further than just mistakes on the battlefield. Rather, the entire policy of arming so-called “moderates” in Syria has led directly to the growth of ISIS into a regional power.

Since 2012, the US, primarily through the CIA, has been providing weapons and training to terrorists in Syria under the guise of arming “moderates.” Many of these allegedly moderate groups have in recent months been documented as having either disbanded or defected to ISIS, including the little publicized mass defections of former Free Syrian Army fighters. However it has happened, a vast arsenal of US-supplied weapons and other military hardware are now counted among the ISIS arsenal. So much for the US policy of ensuring the weapons don’t “fall into the wrong hands.”

So, while the US has proclaimed to be fighting ISIS and the al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front, they have been simultaneously arming and supporting many of the same forces which now make up much of the rank-and-file of these terror groups. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Washington: Peace broker or arms dealer?

Those who follow US foreign policy are likely unsurprised by these revelations of Washington providing arms and intensifying an already dangerous conflict. In Syria, the US has consistently argued that the Syrian government cannot be seen as a partner for peace, and so they must provide weapons to “moderates.” In Ukraine, where the US has a compliant and servile government that executes its diktats, Washington still supplies the arms, talking of peace and stability while exacerbating the war and human tragedy in East Ukraine.

Last week, the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed (348-48) a resolution to provide military support in the form of weapons to Ukraine. As Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee stated, “The people of Ukraine are not looking for American troops. They are just looking for the weapons to defend themselves. They don’t have those weapons. We do.”

Indeed, it seems that US policy is to pursue “peace” at the barrel of a US-made, US-supplied gun. As Secretary of State John Kerry explained in his usual self-contradictory manner “To get peace, you have to defend your country,” a devilishly cynical statement from the man who, entirely without irony, explained in 2014 that “you don’t just invade another country on a phony pretext in order to assert your interests.” Perhaps, rather than invading countries, the Obama administration has decided to simply provide the weapons, training, and logistical and material support in order to assert its own interests.

While Syria and Iraq face an existential struggle against the wildfire that is the Islamic State, the United States arrives, gas can in hand, to make peace. As Ukraine slides deeper into civil war, the US provides all the ingredients for a witches’ brew of violence and bloodshed.

For all its talk of psychological war against ISIS, Washington has embraced an aggressive, multi-pronged approach that leaves little doubt as to the thinking of its strategic planners: the enemy of my enemy is both friend and enemy. As Tacitus famously said of the Romans, “They make a desert and call it peace.” So too do the Americans in the blood-soaked deserts of Syria and Iraq.

Congressman Ted Poe – Obama Will Lose Amnesty Appeal – Never Conducted A Public Hearing

Congressman Ted Poe – Obama Will Lose Amnesty Appeal – Never Conducted A Public Hearing

105 ted poe 940

As a former prosecutor and judge, Rep Ted Poe (R-TX) knows a thing or two about legal proceedings and in his opinion, the injunction against Barack Obama’s decree of illegal alien amnesty is on firm ground.

Poe repeated his previously stated beliefs in a Tuesday interview with former Arizona Congressman turned media personality, J.D. Hayworth.

Congressman Poe notes that the border is less secure now than it was in the days when Hayworth was in the Congress and points out that in an effort to stem some of the tide of illegals flooding into their state, Texas has increased their presence on the border in the form of Texas Rangers and the Department of Public Safety.

He says the situation is “very serious,” noting that they are trying to come up with a border solution that will pass both houses of Congress. He speaks to the tremendous costs incurred by all states but particularly the border states as well as the federal government as the result of our lax enforcement.

Rep Poe says that “The word is out, throughout the world, that the border is open in the south. If you want to come into the United States, get to Mexico and come in to Texas or one of the other three states. And people are doing that.”

He says, “And when I was down there recently, the Department of Public Safety and the Border Patrol apprehended three Ukrainians that crossed the border,” noting, “We’re getting everybody; the good, the bad and the ugly.”

Congressman Poe believes that the Obama administration will lose the upcoming appeal in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. He characterized it as being “unprecedented, that a president will wave his magic wand and issue an edict” of amnesty for five million people.

Retired U.S. Admiral Says Iran Deal Is A Sham, Calls For Obama’s Impeachment

Critics continue to pounce on Obama’s efforts to rid Iran of a nuclear weapon.

On Sunday, media reported that six world powers reached a provisional agreement on key parts of a deal that is meant to curtail Iran’s nuclear program.

Western diplomats in Switzerland reported that Iran had “more or less” agreed to reduce the number of its centrifuge machines by more than two-thirds and to ship abroad most of its stockpile of nuclear material. Iranian diplomats immediately denied the reports and said that they were ‘pure journalistic speculation.’ Israeli radio Reshet Beth quoted the head of Iranian team as saying that Iran categorically rejects any exporting of their stockpiles.

Later, a French official in Lausanne angrily knocked down the report and said it was totally false. The New York Times also confirmed the Reshet Beth report and quoted Iranian official Abbas Araqchi, who said “The export of stocks of enriched uranium is not in our program, and we do not intend sending them abroad. There is no question of sending the stocks abroad.”

“The revelation that Iran is now insisting on retaining the fuel could raise a potential obstacle at a critical time in the talks. And for critics of the emerging deal in Congress, in Israel and in Sunni Arab nations like Saudi Arabia, the prospect of leaving large amounts of nuclear fuel in Iran, in any form, is bound to intensify their already substantial political opposition”, The New York Times reported.

Israeli officials reacted to the developments in Switzerland by issuing sharply-worded statements. One official described the terms of the looming agreement as “incomprehensibly” bad and rejected the Obama administration’s contention that it would keep the regime a year away from accumulating enough fissile material for a bomb.

Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday that the deal was “full of holes,” and that he hoped US President Barack Obama would keep to his word that “no deal is better than a bad deal.”

Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu reported at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting that he had spoken to US Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and with Democratic leader Harry Reid. He heard strong and continuing bipartisan support for Israel from both of them, and the two expressed their deep concern over the agreement being formulated with Iran. Netanyahu said: “The agreement, as it appears, confirms all of our concerns and even more so.”

“While [world powers] convene to sign this deal, Iran’s proxies in Yemen are conquering large swaths of land in an effort to overtake the Bab al-Mandeb Straits, so that they can change the balance of power in shipping oil,” Netanyahu said, referring to recent unrest in Yemen.

“The Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis is very dangerous to humanity, and must be stopped,” he added.

Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon also called the emerging deal with Iran “a very bad deal.” Turning Iran into a nuclear threshold state, he said Sunday, “would be nothing less than a tragedy for the moderate regimes in the Middle East and the entire Western world.”

“You don’t need to be an intelligence officer to see Iran is lying barefacedly, and is today the greatest danger to the stability of the Middle East,” he said.

Earlier last week, news broke that the U.S. negotiation team had retreated from the demand that the underground uranium enrichment plant Fordow be closed under the agreement.

The Associated Press reported last Thursday that the United States was considering letting Tehran run hundreds of centrifuges at the once-secret, fortified underground bunker in Fordow in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites.

“The trade-off would allow Iran to run several hundred of the devices at its Fordo facility, although the Iranians would not be allowed to do work that could lead to an atomic bomb and the site would be subject to international inspections, according to Western officials familiar with details of negotiations now underway. In return, Iran would be required to scale back the number of centrifuges it runs at its Natanz facility and accept other restrictions on nuclear-related work.

“Instead of uranium, which can be enriched to be the fissile core of a nuclear weapon, any centrifuges permitted at Fordo would be fed elements such as zinc, xenon or germanium for separating out isotopes used in medicine, industry or science, the officials said. The number of centrifuges would not be enough to produce the amount of uranium needed to produce a weapon within a year — the minimum time-frame that Washington and its negotiating partners demand,” the AP reported.

At the start of the negotiation process with Iran, the White House promised that Fordow would be shuttered. Later, Obama’s team agreed that Fordow would be converted into a research and development plant where no enrichment would take place.

Allowing the Iranians to enrich at Fordow means they could kick out inspectors at any time and have a fully-functioning enrichment facility hardened against military intervention. Since sanctions will be unraveled by design at the beginning of a deal, that means the West would have literally zero options to stop a breakout.

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner immediately reacted to the AP report and tweeted: “Not a good deal.”

Earlier last week, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IEAE) confirmed that Iran has yet to comply with the demand to hand over to the UN Security Council and the IEAE crucial information about the possible military dimensions of its nuclear program.

In an address to the 2015 Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference, Director General Yukiya Amano of the IEAE urged Iran to implement the Additional Protocol to its Safeguards Agreement. This is a step that gives IAEA inspectors greater access to sites and more information about a country’s nuclear program so that the Agency can provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities.

In November 2011, Amano stated in a report to the IAEA Board of Governors that credible information obtained by the Agency indicated that Iran had carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device. The information also indicated that, before the end of 2003, these activities took place under a structured program, and that some might still be ongoing. The report identified 12 areas of concern.

The U.S. Senate reacted to the emerging deal and voted unanimously (100-0) for Senator Kirk’s proposal that would enable Congress to reimpose economic sanctions on Iran if it cheats on a nuclear agreement with the West. The move came just a few days after media reports that Democrats would block the proposal.

On Saturday, a journalist who defected from the Iranian team in Switzerland issued a damning

A three-in-one vacuum system

The LHC is unusual in that it has three separate vacuum systems: one for the beam pipes, one for insulating the cryogenically cooled magnets and one for insulating the helium distribution line.

To avoid colliding with gas molecules inside the accelerator, the beams of particles in the LHC must travel in a vacuum as empty as interplanetary space. In the cryomagnets and the helium distribution line, the vacuum serves a different purpose. Here, it acts as a thermal insulator, to reduce the amount of heat that seeps from the surrounding room-temperature environment into the cryogenic parts which are kept at at 1.9 K (-271.3°C).

Big OOOPS! Hillary’s accidental drone email about decorating reveals BIG new problems

Big OOOPS! Hillary’s accidental drone email about decorating reveals BIG new problems

Being publicly proven a liar and a fool at the same time can’t be easy, but that’s what happened to Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.

The Associated Press published a story proving the former secretary of wasn’t telling the truth when she claimed she used a private email account and private server to conduct public business as a matter of “convenience” to avoid using two separate devices.

hillaryemaildrone0331

hillaryemaildronetwo0331

As the emails obtained by the AP show, Clinton used her iPad as well as a Blackberry to send her emails, that’s the liar part.

That’s not all, though. The AP story notes that the State Department released a total of four emails in response to its request for documents relating to drone strikes and U.S. overseas surveillance programs over a four-year period. The secretary of state sent only four emails about the two most critical parts of the country’s war on terror in four years?

Even Elijah Cummings can’t believe that.

The fool part shows that the woman who would be president actually answered an email from her chief of staff that included a news account of a U.S. drone attack in Pakistan in 2011 with a question of her own — and one that appears to be about decorations.

Not only that, but the secretary of state of the United States not only didn’t always know not always know who she was emailing, she apparently wasn’t sure whether the emails she sent on her iPad were getting to anybody at all.

Maybe they weren’t. Maybe she really told Vladimir Putin Russia would face crippling economic sanctions if he went ahead with the invasion of the Crimea and he just never got the email.

Or maybe they were going to the wrong places. That Syrian civil war might never have gotten off the ground if the email Hillary sent to Bashar Assad hadn’t ended up at her florist by accident.

Somewhere in Chappaqua, N.Y., there’s probably a dry cleaner who still doesn’t know what masses revolting in Tunisia have to do with the creases in Bill’s trousers. (Or with that private island of teenage sex slaves brochure he found in the pocket.)

But this is the woman the Democrat Party has all but prostrated itself for.

A liar and a fool. It’s fitting.

EXCLUSIVE – Bobby Kennedy ordered Marilyn Monroe’s murder by lethal injection to prevent her from revealing her torrid affairs with RFK and JFK: New book sensationally claims to have finally solved the mystery surrounding her death

EXCLUSIVE – Bobby Kennedy ordered Marilyn Monroe’s murder by lethal injection to prevent her from revealing her torrid affairs with RFK and JFK: New book sensationally claims to have finally solved the mystery surrounding her death

  • Investigative journalists Jay Margolis and Richard Buskin believe they they lay to rest any notion that Marilyn committed suicide, and reveal how they think the screen goddess really died
  • The Kennedy brothers were ‘passing her around like a football,’ revealed brother-in-law, actor Peter Lawford, years after she died
  • Marilyn knew too much about the Kennedys and threatened to reveal everything
  • Bobby Kennedy did not act alone, the authors claim. Complicit in the murder was Lawford and Marilyn’s shrink, who gave her the fatal dose of pentobarbitol
  • Before that, she was given an enema filled with broken-down Nembutals and seventeen chloral hydrates
  • When ambulance drivers found her in her Brentwood guest house, ‘She was naked. She had no sheet, no blanket. There was no water glass. No alcohol…’

Marilyn Monroe’s death on August 4, 1962 was not a suicide but a murder orchestrated by Bobby Kennedy to silence her as she was about to reveal all the dirty Kennedy family secrets she kept logged in a little red diary.

And Bobby did not act alone. He had co-conspirators in her murder – his brother-in-law, actor Peter Lawford, and Marilyn’s psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson who gave the star a fatal injection of pentobarbital to the heart.

Those are the explosive allegations detailed in a blockbuster new book by writers Jay Margolis, a long-time investigative reporter and Monroe expert, and Richard Buskin, a New York Times bestselling author of 30 non- fiction books.

The volume – The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed – claims to blow the lid off the world’s most notorious and talked-about celebrity death through eyewitness testimony and interviews,  MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

‘Bobby Kennedy was determined to shut her up, regardless of the consequences’, Peter Lawford later revealed, according to the authors, feeling wracked with guilt over the star’s murder. ‘It was the craziest thing he ever did – and I was crazy enough to let it happen’.

It was a murder allegedly witnessed by ambulance attendant James C. Hall, who arrived at the film star’s home and saw Monroe’s psychiatrist Dr. Greenson inject Marilyn directly into her heart with undiluted pentobarbital, brutally breaking a rib with the needle.

He was set up by Bobby to ‘take care’ of Marilyn.

Bobby Kennedy got involved in a messy sexual affair with Marilyn in the summer of 1962 when he was sent out to Los Angeles by his brother Jack to convince the screen goddess to stop calling the President at the White House. The President was not going to divorce Jackie and marry her.

But Bobby fell under her spell and slipped into the bedroom with Marilyn.

‘It wasn’t Bobby’s intention, but that evening they became lovers and spent the night in our guest bedroom’, Peter Lawford later revealed.

The Kennedy helicopter always landed down on the beach in front of Lawford’s Santa Monica’s Gold Coast home in the Palisades area of Los Angeles. Jack Kennedy had spent so much time there having extramarital affairs with starlets and movie queens, it was dubbed the Western branch of the White House.

Now it was Bobby’s turn.

‘Almost immediately the affair got very heavy, and they began seeing a lot of each other,’  Lawford said.

Marilyn shifted her attentions to Bobby and started calling the Department of Justice to get the Attorney General on the phone. She was now madly in love with Bobby, who had promised to marry her and leave Ethel, Lawford said, despite the Kennedy brothers ‘passing her around like a football’ and making her feel like a piece of meat.

But when Bobby began to pull away, Marilyn threatened Bobby with a press conference where she would reveal her illicit affairs with Jack and Bobby and all the dangerous secrets she knew about the Kennedys and had written in the little red diary she kept hidden.

Bobby demanded to know where the diary was. ‘We have to know’, he screamed at her, claim the authors. Marilyn was not going to give it up.

Bobby’s first response was to call Dr. Ralph Greenson, Marilyn’s psychiatrist, who she was also sleeping with and order him to go public with that affair.

Lawford had learned about her affair with Greenson when he listened to tapes from the recording devices hidden in Marilyn’s house by the FBI, among others.

‘Greenson had thus been set up by Bobby to ‘take care’ of Marilyn’…the authors write.

The revelation would have ended Greenson’s career as well as send him to prison. But Marilyn had no intention of mentioning her affair with the doctor. Bobby just made him think that was the case.

Bobby made his final visit to Monroe’s Brentwood house on the afternoon of August 4, 1962 with Lawford who went outside to have a glass of champagne poolside while Bobby talked with her.

It turned into a ten-minute argument with Marilyn getting hysterical and threatening that, come Monday morning, she was going to call a press conference and reveal all – infuriating Bobby.

He demanded no more calls, no more letters.

Unwilling to accept being dismissed, she began screaming, grabbed a small knife and lunged at Bobby. Lawford, who had come back inside because of the tumult, grabbed her arm and knocked the knife away.

‘Bobby thought we ought to call Dr. Greenson and tell him to come over,’ Lawford said.

Marilyn’s neighbors saw Bobby leave and re-enter later that evening with one of his two long-time personal bodyguards from the LAPD’s notorious Gangster Squad who performed illegal activities for the LAPD off the books.

One of the bodyguards shot Marilyn in the armpit with intramuscular pentobarbital (Nembutal) to calm her down – after she was thrown to the floor by Bobby, who made this statement to the doctor in what the authors claim was a deposition confirming he and Lawford were at the house.

While she was stunned, Bobby and Lawford rummaged through the house in search of the little red diary.

The Nembutal injection wasn’t strong enough to calm her down for long ‘so the two LAPD Gangster Squad partners held her down, stripped her clothes off, and gave her an enema filled with broken-down pills containing anywhere from thirteen to nineteen Nembutals and seventeen chloral hydrates’.

This did the trick. Back to the search for the red diary.

Kennedy, Lawford, and the two bodyguards left the scene at 10.30pm and the incessant barking of Marilyn’s white maltese terrier, Maf, aroused suspicion of her housekeeper Eunice Murray and Murray’s son, Norman Jefferies who came over to find out what was going on.

They discovered Monroe lying across the bed with her head hanging over the edge in the guest cottage and called an ambulance. Mrs. Murray suspected it was an overdose.

Schaefer Ambulance attendant James Edwin Hall was first on the scene about midnight and threw Monroe onto the floor and proceeded to given her close-chest heart massage. Attendant Murray Liebowitz was also with Hall on the abulance run.

‘She was naked. She had no sheet, no blanket. There was no water glass. No alcohol…We ascertained that her breathing was very shallow, her pulse was very weak and rapid and she was unconscious at that time,’ Hall observed.

Her bedside table had pill bottles all neatly capped. No water, no alcohol.

‘As I bend over her, it hit me – there was no vomit, unusual with an overdose which is what the woman managed to tell us that she thought was wrong. … there was no odor of drugs from her mouth. Another classic symptom’.

This discredited any theory that she had ingested 64 pills in a suicide attempt.

Hall started an external heart massage and got her breathing again. He worked an airway, a clean plastic tube, down her throat and Liebowitz ran to the ambulance for the resuscitation equipment.

Liebowitz was about to retrieve the stretcher from the ambulance when a man appeared in the doorway. It was Greenson who firmly stated, ‘I’m her doctor. Give her positive pressure.’

‘Jesus Christ, I thought. What’s wrong with you? I’ve got a machine here that’s doing a great job of that. Why take her off it’? Hall remembered.

Hall removed the resuscitator and attached another short length of tube to the airway. The doctor pushed on Marilyn’s abdomen in the wrong place while Hall blew into the tube.

‘I know some doctors aren’t used to emergencies but this guy was all thumbs. That’s when he muttered, “I’ve got to make a show of this”. I never forgot that remark. “Christ, let’s move”, I said. “You can work on her in the back of the ambulance”.

‘Time was running out and I wanted to save her’.

The doctor opened his bag and took out a hypodermic syringe with a needle looked about a foot long.

‘He drew up a liquid from a bottle with a rubber seal and filled the syringe. He felt his way down her ribs like an amateur. Then he thrust the needle into her chest. But it didn’t go in right. It hung up on the bone, on one of her ribs’, said Hall.

‘Instead of trying again, he just leaned into it, his cheeks quivered with the effort. He pushed hard and he drove it all the way through the rib, making a loud snap as the bone broke. I know he scarred that rib bone. I had watched a lot of medical procedures and this guy was downright brutal’.

James Hall had worked for Schaefer Ambulance for some years. His father, Dr. George E. Hall was a Beverly Hills surgeon and former chief of staff of LA receiving hospitals, the city’s emergency system.

His mother was a surgical nurse. His uncle, John Nance Garner, was Vice President for two terms under Franklin D. Roosevelt. He was a very credible witness to the nurder.

Murray Liebowitz, the other ambulance attendant who witnessed the murder, never talked.

The ambulance drivers weren’t the only witnesses to the injection that would turn out to be a lethal one. Peter Lawford had apparently returned to the scene, along with LA Police Sargeant Marvin Iannone, who had been stationed at Monroe’s house on orders from Bobby and always worked the detail on Lawford’s beach house when the Attorney General was in town.

Private detective Fred Otash, who had bugged Marilyn’s house on a request from Lawford who liked to listen to kinky tapes, heard Iannone and Lawford talking on tape at 11.55pm that night, he later revealed.

‘There were five witnesses to Marilyn Monroe’s murder’, the authors write. ‘Three of the five [ultimately Lawford, and ambulance attendants Hall and Liebowitz] state that Ralph Greenson was responsible’.

‘I believe Marilyn was moved [from the guest cottage to her main bedroom] as to fit their story of suicide,’ said Hall.

Also, she was found facedown on her bed. After death the blood in the body goes to the lowest point by gravity. In this position, the pooling of the blood would cover up any marks (needle or otherwide) on the front of the body’, Hall stated.

The LA Coroner at the time, Dr. Thomas Noguchi, performed the autopsy, stated he looked over the whole body with a magnifying glass and didn’t find any needle marks.

Hall noted that Noguchi possibly didn’t see the needle puncture by Greenson that was in the crease of one of Marilyn’s breasts.

Life Magazine photojournalist Leigh Wiener bribed the county morgue staff with a bottle of whiskey to get inside and photograph Monroe hours after her death.

Her body showed cyanosis, blue or purple coloration of the skin which is consistent with needle injection. ‘You’ll see little streaks of blue running through the body..That’s how Monroe looked to me when I saw her’, he said.

Chief William Parker, the police chief in LA, liked Bobby Kennedy and his stance on organized crime as well as his embrace of the same Catholic faith. So he refused to assign a full-time detective team to the Monroe case, initiating a shocking cover-up.

Syndicated Hollywood columnist May Mann, who interviewed and wrote about stars for several decades, was reporting on what she considered an inept probe into Monroe’s untimely death when she received a call from the Chief Parker.

‘He said it would be bad for my health if I kept writing stories like that’, she stated.

The case turned cold.

Detective Mike Rothmiller wrote ‘it was this unit [the OCID] which had undertaken the clandestine probe of Monroe’s death. They had the power to ruin lives and reputations – or to safeguard. This is precisely what they did with the Monroe investigation …they protected the name of the Kennedy dynasty’.

Lady May Lawford, Peter’s mother, confirmed years later that Bobby had been in town the night of Marilyn’s death. His helicopter had been parked at the beach in front of Peter’s house despite his denial.

PI Fred Otash confirmed that the FBI and the CIA had bugged Marilyn’s home and it was an FBI agent who reported to J. Edgar Hoover that Bobby had been inside the house along with the two Bobby knew that Hoover knew.

Hoover’s teenage neighbor Anthony Calomaris came forward years later and stated that Hoover had told him Monroe was murdered but he didn’t want to arrest Bobby. He used knowledge of the murder to blackmail the Attorney General to secure his own position as head of the FBI.

Marilyn Monroe’s death was ultimately ruled a suicide by the authorities.
