House Republicans Push Justice Department To Open Clinton Perjury Probe

Despite trustworthiness levels that would make Nixon blush, Hillary Clinton remains ahead in the polls and while we detailed the five potential scenarios that could crimp her lead, there is one word that looms large over her campaign: perjury. Just when you thought the whole lying-under-oath thing was yesterday's news, The Hill reports, leading House Republicans on Monday laid out detailed instructions for the Justice Department to file perjury charges against the Democratic presidential nominee.

FBI To Hand Over Clinton Email Probe Files To Congress

In what may be some overdue, and much needed transparency, the WSJ reports that the FBI will "hand over" its Clinton email probe files to Congress. Actually, in retrospect, don't hold your breath for any new revelations for one simple reason: there will be no actual testimony.

Connecting The Nuclear 'Dots'

With Iran back in the headlines once again thanks to the US government's shady cash payments surrounding the nuclear deal and hostage release, we thought it worth considering the warnings of GeoStrategic Analysis' Dr. Peter Huessy: Iran seeks to do us grave harm. Instead of heeding the nuclear missile "dots" that are emerging all around us, we are busy promoting trade with Iran, downplaying its violations of the nuclear deal, simply ignoring its ballistic missile developments and dismissing the growing evidence of its terrorist past.

Former CIA Head Accuses Trump Of Being "An Unwitting Agent Of Russia", Here's What He Did Not Say

Former acting director and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2010 to 2013, Michael Morell has penned a WSJ Op-Ed endorsing Hillary Clinton and claiming "Mr. Putin has recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation." However, while Morell portrays himself as some sort of bipartisan warrior, this is not true. He’s been vying for a position in a potential Hillary Clinton administration for three years now, and since he won't disclose his close ties with Clinton, we will...

Whistleblower's Stunning Claim: "NSA Has All Of Hillary's Deleted Emails, It May Be The Leak"

"If the FBI really wanted them they can go into that database and get them right now,” William Binney said of Clinton’s emails as well as DNC emails. Asked point blank if he believed the NSA has copies of “all” of Clinton’s emails, including the deleted correspondence, Binney confirmed. “Yes. That would be my point. They have them all and the FBI can get them right there.”

The Olympics As A Tool Of The New Cold War

The 6th Fundamental Principle of Olympism (non-discrimination of any kind, including nationality and political opinion) seems to be forgotten long ago. In ancient Greece the competition of best athletes was able to halt a war and serve as a bridge of understanding between two recent foes. But in the twentieth century the Olympics have become a political weapon.

Trump And The End Of NATO?

Trump does not seem to understand how deeply important NATO or US militarism elsewhere around the globe are to American hegemony under its corporate capitalist system. If and when he does actually try to implement his policy, he will encounter formidable forces that he probably isn’t aware of yet. The last American president who tried to rein in the corporate power of US militarism was John F Kennedy. He was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in broad daylight

Doug Casey On President Hillary Clinton, World War III, & The Deep State

"The Democrats can be viewed as the evil party and the Republicans as the stupid party. But they’re really just two sides of the same coin, at least when it comes to their leadership - they’re all Deep State members. The Libertarians once had a claim to being the party of principle, back in the days when people like John Hospers, Harry Browne and Ron Paul were their candidates. But now, the Libertarians can be viewed, at best, as the smart wing of the stupid party. It’s a sad testimony to the nature of politics..."

The Key Thing To Watch For In Today's FOMC Statement

The Fed is expected to stay on hold today. Given the Fed’s dovish reaction to the weak May employment report, SocGen expects that officials are likely to be reluctant to commit to any particular path just yet (despite the longest streak of economically positive surprise in US history). In the absence of any signal regarding the next hike, attention will fall on their characterization of the economy. Here are five things to watch in the statement...
