Russian Television (RT): Partial Release
of Hacked Hillary Clinton Emails

Forbes Magazine, by Paul Roderick Gregory

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 3/19/2013 7:20:21 PM

Confidential emails purportedly from former political advisor Sydney Blumenthal to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been hacked and widely distributed to politicians and news sources. Included in the hacker “Gucifer’s” distribution list are Russian news services such as Pravda, Moscow Times, and RT. We have no information about the authenticity of the hacked e mails. They will be tested over the next few hours or days. RT has released excerpts from the purported Blumenthal-Clinton memos. RT, which is a propaganda arm of the Putin regime, will have its own agenda in selecting and

Really seems to raise more questions than it answers. Could just be a tactic to muddy the waters to give Madam Rodham more wiggle room...
In any event, my first question is, why does this simpering swish Sidney Blumenthal have access to this information. I wouldnt trust this fairy with with the keys to the mens´ room let alone national security info...

Zero is supposedly worried that any perceived association with the CIA might undermine his regime??? HUH???

This doesn´t make sense. I thought Obama was the drone master - choosing who will die at the hands of the CIA´s drones. And he didn´t hesitate to claim responsibility for OBL´s killing which involved the CIA.

Agree this should be taken with a grain of salt. They are all communist peas in a pod, quite capable of back stabbing and blood baths on the path to even more power. Pass the popcorn.

The part about Saudi Arabia financing terror attacks is quite believeable: A neighbor of mine in Atlanta, a former Air Force commander overseeing radar operations while stationed in Saudi Arabia during the Bush I Persian Gulf war, made it quite clear to me how much Saudi Arabians hate America. He was there and saw it first-hand. S.A. is Obama´s master. Where were the majority of the 09/11/01 attackers from? hmmm?

I´m a news junkie and so far have not heard or seen a single MSM report on this. Hillary, the Butch of Benghazi, will simply claim they are all fake and part of some diabolical plot to unfairly discredit her and the MSM will follow whatever instructions she gives them.

What was the security classification of the information the information received from "extremely sensitive sources", what is the security clearance and access held by journalist Sydney Blumenthal. Should Hillary be investigated for transmitting classified information to a non authorized person (Sydney Blumenthal), especially in that the information was released. If she committed a crime she cannot escape punishment merely because her name is Hillary.

CIA is quietly ramping up aid

National Public Radio, by Tom Bowman and Alice Fordham    Original Article

The U.S. is providing more arms and training to the moderate rebels in Syria, under a growing secret program run by the CIA in Jordan. Sources tell NPR that secret program could be supplemented by a more public effort in the coming months involving American military trainers. The change in strategy comes as the White House sees Syrian leader Bashar Assad growing in strength, and continuing to strike rebel strongholds. Another factor: Russian leaders appear unwilling to help end the three-year-old civil war and are continuing to provide weapons to Assad. Finally, al-Qaida fighters and their allies are expanding in Syria, a

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used remarks at a women´s leadership conference in Boston to urge more female participation and, in a new comment for the former first lady, pushed to end age discrimination of women.(snip)She added: "There’s an army and frankly a very large group of older women who could make a difference to America’s corporations, America’s business, academia, politics, you name it. So I think we have to be supporting these different life choices and breaking down, which often go hand-in-hand with the stereotypes we’re talking about."

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president."
