US Navy SEALs Training in Bulgaria to Storm Russia's Crimea | 25 May 2016 | Russian military analyst Sergei Ishchenko comments on the US military's apparent plans to increase their presence on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria, and the possible threat to the Crimean peninsula this may pose.

The move, Rubin said, would be part of an overall boost in US capabilities deployed in the Black Sea region. "We're looking at a very significant increase as we go forward to next year, not just in exercises and training but also in rotation of units and equipment from NATO allies here to ensure that there's a constant ability to learn how to work together, to train together, within NATO, and that includes the Black Sea," the ambassador said, according to Sofia News Agency.

May 25, 2016 by legitgov

Clinton Broke Federal Rules With Email Server, Audit Finds | 25 May 2016 | Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton violated federal records rules through her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, a State Department audit has concluded. "At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department issues before leaving government service," says an audit by the State Department Inspector General, obtained by NBC News. "Because she did not do so, she did not comply with the [State] Department's policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act." The audit found that the non-compliance over personal email went beyond Clinton, and that former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican, also failed to preserve government-related emails when he was secretary of state. The State Department asked Powell to try to receive relevant emails from his internet provider, but "as of May 2016 the Department has not received a response" from Powell, the audit said.

California high school forces children to watch vaccine propaganda film and give 'correct' answers or be penalized

Insane in the membrane: California high school forces children to watch vaccine propaganda film and give 'correct' answers or be penalized | 23 May 2016 | At Redondo Beach Union High School in Redondo Beach, California, tenth graders are forced to watch a vaccine propaganda film, then provide the "correct" answers in a graded test. [See vaccine propaganda test that tenth graders must take.] The test given to high school students is rife with factual errors and gross omissions, such as claiming that polio infection rates "dropped by 99% when vaccine was introduced in 1955." Children are not taught that polio vaccines cause paralysis and that the official rates of polio dropped largely because government officials altered the definition of "polio" to create the illusion that the vaccines were working better than they actually were. Nor are children taught that even the CDC openly admitted that 98 million Americans were injected with cancer viruses found to have contaminated polio vaccines. The CDC was so alarmed that people remembered this, they scrubbed the entire history of the event from their website.

Wow, it's the first time I agree w. the Saudi sociopaths: Saudi-Owned Paper Claims U.S. Government 'Planned and Carried Out' 9/11 Terrorist Attacks - MEMRI | 21 May 2016 | The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has translated an Al-Hayat article that claims the U.S. government "planned and carried out" the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

The MEMRI-translated article was originally published on April 28, under the byline of Saudi legal expert Katib Al-Shammari. Among other diatribes, Al-Shammari mocks Congress for introducing the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). The U.S. Senate passed JASTA on May 17, and the bill is now under review by the House Judiciary Committee...Americans remain divided over who they believe is responsible for the 9/11 attacks, and Al-Shammari is advancing a controversial, yet ongoing [and accurate] belief among people across the world.
