Convicted Spy Is Using Hillary's "Lack Of Intent" Defense To Seek Leniency

A Navy sailor who has pleaded guilty to espionage charges for photographing classified areas of a nuclear submarine is citing Hillary Clinton’s email setup in an effort to avoid jail time. Lawyers for Kristian Saucier told a federal court in Connecticut on Friday that the Justice Department’s decision not to press charges against Clinton, despite the existence of classified material on more than 100 messages on her machine, was one of several cases that should compel a reduced sentence.

After Turkey Warns West May "Lose" The Country, NATO "Reminds" Ankara It Is Still An Alliance Member

Less than a day after Turkey's surprising pivot toward Russia, when in his first post-coup trip abroad Turkey president Erdogan flew not to a western, or NATO, ally but instead jaunted to meet with Vladimit Putin to repair and cement future ties, a suddenly very defensive NATO and in what some commentators dubbed an "odd move", reminded Turkey that it is still an ally member.

The Propaganda War With Putin

In what has become an old fashioned American pile-on, President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and what seems the entire political establishment as well as the MSM, have united to undermine Putin as if to prime the American public for war with Russia. A little hysteria wouldn’t hurt but most of all, a necessary requirement is to efficiently tutor the public consciousness to despise the adversary... War is, after all, more successful when the people have been thoroughly programmed.

Here Comes The Mandatory Bitcoin Database

It was only a matter of time. In the wake of multiple terror attacks, the European Commission is moving towards creating a mandatory, centralized database of Bitcoin ownership.

Trump Says It's Time To Sell Stocks, Warns Of "Very Scary Scenarios" For Investors

Now that we are exactly three months away from the November 8 election, if Trump wants to really boost his electoral chances, a market crash right now be certainly most welcome by his campaign. Which may be why Trump today urged his supporters to get out of equities as "interest rates set by the Federal Reserve are inflating the stock market" and warned of "very scary scenarios" for investors.

Wishful Optimism: The Triumph Of Lies Over Truth

"To be blessed with a hopeful, optimistic outlook is surely a fine piece of luck. But such an outlook is not a good substitute for a broad, well-informed appreciation of what is at stake in the struggle between the state and those who prefer a less fraudulent and destructive and more peaceful and cooperative arrangement for the production of law and order."

Democrats Question "Loyalty To US" Of "Treasonous, Traitor" Trump

In a full court propaganda press, enabling by a liberal media that can read polling data as well as anyone else, the 'wild conspiracy theory' that Donald Trump coordinated with Putin to hack and expose DNC emails (that prove the level of rigging and collusion that is too much to bear for many democracy-seeking citizens) has now become confirmed fact... entirely lacking any actual facts. In a desperate bid to regain the narrative, as any convention bounce is erased for Hillary Clinton, her surrogates, as The Hill reports, have now stepped it up, calling Trump "treasonous" and a "traitor," questioning "his loyalty to America."

Hillary Clinton: Class President Of A Failed Generation

After all this time, however, Hillary doesn’t get any of it. She thinks war is peace; deficits don’t matter; the baby boom is entitled to the social insurance they didn’t earn; and that the Fed’s serial bubble machine is leading the nation back to prosperity. But like the generation she represents, she has betrayed hergrand ideals over a lifetime of compromise, expediency, self-promotion and complacent acquisition of power, wealth and fame. She doesn’t deserve another stint at the podium - let alone the bully pulpit.

"What The F**k Was That?"

While USDJPY notched down and Oil had been slipping, stocks suddenly lurched lower, gapping to yesterday's lows on heavy volume. As one veteran trader exclaimed "what the f**k was that?" as no obvious catalyst sprung up, unless of course this morning's series of economic "beats" was sufficiently good to be bad for stocks and raise the dreaded rate hike specter.

Democrats Accuse Russia Of Hacking DNC Server To Help Donald Trump

"What is disturbing to us is that experts are telling us that Russians broke into the DNC, stole these emails and other experts are now saying that the Russians are now releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump. I don't think it's coincidental that these emails were released on the eve of our convention here and that's disturbing."
