"I'm 100% Sure" The US Presidential Campaign Is Being Tampered With





There is a growing recognition of the increasing tail wagging the dog nature of the internet's control over election outcomes. We recently detailed "the hidden persuaders" at work showing how the internet has spawned subtle forms of influence that can flip elections and manipulate everything we say, think and do. Confirming all of this to be chillingly true is Andrés Sepúlveda, who rigged elections throughout Latin America for almost a decade. On the question of whether the U.S. presidential campaign is being tampered with, he is unequivocal - "I'm 100 percent sure it is."

Trump's 1990 Playboy Interview: "We Are Being Laughed At Around The World..."





While The Donald may come across as 'shooting from the hip', it appears based on this 1990 interview with Playboy that Trump has been thinking about the decline of America, the weakness and corruption of government, and the impact of foreign (Chinese, Mexican, and Japanese) trade practices on the average joe. As he says, "I don’t want to be President. I’m one hundred percent sure. I’d change my mind only if I saw this country continue to go down the tubes."

Verge Of Revolution: The Story You Aren't Being Told About The Brazilian Uprising





While Brazilians are angry and tired of their economic hardships, they are also incensed at the country’s history of corruption, which now includes a massive presidential scandal carried out by politicians and lobbyists during the current and previous administrations. This misconduct has given residents of all walks of life enough incentive to take their demands to the streets. Mainstream media has covered the major protests overtaking the streets of Brazil at the outset of an apparent political revolution, but few discuss the problems that have been brewing for decades in South America’s largest nation.

JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank, Rothschild Yanked Into Probe Of Goldman-Backed Malaysian Slush Fund





When last we checked in on the 1MDB saga, Goldman was busy tying up a few loose ends. Tim Leissner, the banker who built the firm’s Southeast Asia operation from the ground up and the man behind a series of questionable deals that funded what would eventually become Malaysian PM Najib Razak’s personal slush fund, was essentially forced out in January, after bank investigators uncovered what they said was an unauthorized reference letter. Now, the global effort to find out how nearly three quarters of a billion dollars ended up in Najib's checking account looks set to ensnare all of the usual suspects.

Police Raid Offices Of Monaco Firm Accused Of Bribing World's Oil Producers

"We're Going To War" – Oliver Stone Fears The Dangerous Extremism Of Neocon Hillary Clinton





"We’re going to war — either hybrid in nature to break the Russian state back to its 1990s subordination, or a hot war (which will destroy our country). Our citizens should know this, but they don’t because our media is dumbed down in its “Pravda”-like support for our “respectable,” highly aggressive government."

Olympics In Doubt As Brazil Sports Minister Quits, Rio Governor Says "This Is The Worst Situation I've Ever Seen"





At this juncture, the only thing we can say is that we hope the lawyers for all of the advertising partners who just spent a total of $1 billion with NBC's executive vice president of advertising sales Seth Winter took a good look at the fine print before signing on the dotted line and cutting the checks.

Presenting, "The Company That Bribed The World"





Surprise! The global oil industry is corrupt. As Huff Post reports: "A massive leak of confidential documents has for the first time exposed the true extent of corruption within the oil industry, implicating dozens of leading companies, bureaucrats and politicians in a sophisticated global web of bribery and graft. After a six-month investigation across two continents, Fairfax Media and The Huffington Post can reveal that billions of dollars of government contracts were awarded as the direct result of bribes paid on behalf of firms including British icon Rolls-Royce, US giant Halliburton, Australia’s Leighton Holdings and Korean heavyweights Samsung and Hyundai."

"Voting For President Is Like Picking-Out Which Gun You Wanna Get Shot With"





“Nobody for President. That’s my campaign slogan. We got money for wars but can’t feed our homeless. The government is hopeless. It’s like a reality show. The Real lives of the House Liars... all this pageantry is just designed for fools. They gonna give you the one they choose. Too big to fail, too rich to lose. And I’m still too broke to vote."
