Clintons took payments from Trans-Pacific Partnership backers last year | 18 May 2016 | Former President Bill Clinton raked in millions of dollars from special interest groups in the weeks just before and after his wife announced her presidential campaign, including $325,000 from a group that pushed for the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Hillary Clinton came out against the trade deal in October under pressure from her rival, Bernie Sanders, and his progressive supporters. Sanders denounced the agreement early in his campaign, arguing the deal benefits major corporations at the expense of American jobs. But the National Association of Manufacturers, which paid Bill Clinton a hefty fee just one month before Hillary Clinton launched her candidacy in April, lobbied for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail said it was too early to rule out any explanation, including an attack like the one blamed for bringing down a Russian airliner over Egypt's Sinai Peninsula last year.

Uh-Oh: Trump to Meet With Kissinger for Foreign Policy Advice | 17 May 2016 | The Washington Post reports that presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is to meet with Bilderberg kingpin [and war criminal] Henry Kissinger this week in order to tap his 'expertise' on foreign policy.

Baker III, another former Republican secretary of state, and consummate insider, [and 2000 Bush coup d'etat architect,] under the Bushes. Baker was vocal in his criticism of Trump's foreign policy proposals, particularly his call to abolish NATO.

EgyptAir disappearance 'points to bomb', says terrorism expert | 19 May 2016 | The EgyptAir flight disappearance could be the result of a bomb, according to one of Australia's most prominent counter terrorism researchers. Deakin University professor Greg Barton said while it is possible MS804 vanished on the way from Paris to Cairo because of a conventional systems failure, "if you have an aircraft experience an explosive decompression at cruise altitude, that points to it being a bomb"..."If the radar image is suddenly not there and there's a sudden deceleration, as with the Sharm el-Sheik flight, it does strongly suggest a bomb."

Oops! CIA inspector general's office admits it 'mistakenly' destroyed its only copy of Senate torture report: Senate report on CIA torture is one step closer to disappearing | 16 May 2016 | The CIA inspector general's office - the spy agency's internal watchdog - has acknowledged it "mistakenly" destroyed its only copy of a mammoth Senate torture report at the same time lawyers for the Justice Department were assuring a federal judge that copies of the document were being preserved, Yahoo News has learned. Although other copies of the report exist, the erasure of the controversial document by the CIA office charged with policing agency conduct has alarmed the U.S. senator who oversaw the torture investigation and reignited a behind-the-scenes battle over whether the full unabridged report should ever be released, according to multiple intelligence community sources familiar with the incident. The deletion of the document has been portrayed by agency officials to Senate investigators as an "inadvertent" foul-up [LOL!] by the inspector general.

Justices, Seeking Compromise, Return Contraception Case to Lower Courts | 16 May 2016 | The Supreme Court, in an unsigned unanimous opinion, announced on Monday that it would not rule in a major case on access to contraception, and instructed lower courts to explore whether a compromise was possible. The ruling was the latest indication that the eight-member Supreme Court is exploring every avenue to avoid 4-to-4 deadlocks, even if the resulting action does not decide the question the justices had agreed to address. The case, Zubik v. Burwell, No. 14-1418, was brought by religious groups that object to providing insurance coverage for contraception to their female employees. Less than a week after the case was argued in March, the court issued an unusual unsigned order asking the parties to submit supplemental briefs on a possible compromise.
