  • O'Keefe Twitter hinting at something big? Is it Livingston?

    Funny coincidence.... Yesterday I was reading something where O'Keefe had video of someone who claimed to be the Clinton's hit man. The guy claimed to have cleaned out Vince Foster's office based upon Hillary's orders. I just read that the Secret Service saw Craig Livingston clean out Vince foster's office. Could the O'Keefe video be a tell all by Craig Livingston? Remember, James Comey was in charge of the investigation that found NOTHING!!!
  • Document:Anatomy of the Deep State (Shadow Government)

    10/18/2016 7:04:24 AM PDT · by tired&retired · 9 replies ^ | Feb 21, 2014 | Mike Lofgren
    There is another government concealed behind the one that is visible at either end of Pennsylvania Avenue, a hybrid entity of public and private institutions ruling the country according to consistent patterns in season and out, connected to, but only intermittently controlled by, the visible state whose leaders we choose. My analysis of this phenomenon is not an exposé of a secret, conspiratorial cabal; the state within a state is hiding mostly in plain sight, and its operators mainly act in the light of day. Nor can this other government be accurately termed an "establishment." The Deep State does not...

    One revelation in the documents came from an interview with an unidentified person who suggested that Freedom of Information Act requests related to Clinton went through a group sometimes called "the Shadow Government." "There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as 'The 7th Floor Group' or 'The Shadow Government.' This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries," the FBI's interview summary said. That group, according to the summary, argued for a Clinton document release to be conducted all at once "for coordination...

    Hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky had friends in high places when he bet big on a Greek economic recovery, but even the keen interest of his mother-in-law, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wasn't enough to spare him and his investors from financial tragedy. In 2012, Mezvinski, the husband of Chelsea Clinton, created a $325 million basket of offshore funds under the Eaglevale Partners banner through a special arrangement with investment bank Goldman Sachs. The funds have lost tens of millions of dollars predicting that bailouts of the Greek banking system would pump up the value of the country’s distressed bonds....

    DEMONIC possessions are on the rise and the church does not have enough exorcists to fight them. DEMONIC WAR: Catholic Church exorcists say they are not enough of them battle the forces of evil. This is the shock claim made by top priests from the Catholic Church close to the Vatican.

    U.S. seed maker Monsanto Co. has agreed to a $57-billion buyout offer from Germany's Bayer in a deal that would create a global agricultural and chemical giant. The deal was announced Wednesday at a time when a record harvest is driving crop prices to painfully low levels for farmers. It was the third time in four months that Bayer returned with a richer offer in its pursuit of Monsanto. Including debt, the deal is valued at $66 billion. If approved, Monsanto will continue to be based in St. Louis.

    NEW YORK — With Election Day less than two months away, Democrats are increasingly worried that Hillary Clinton has not built a formidable lead against Donald Trump despite his historic weaknesses as a national party candidate. Even the Democratic nominee’s advisers acknowledge that she must make changes, and quickly. Clinton leads Trump by three percentage points, having fallen from her high of nine points in August, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average. That tightening has frustrated many Clinton allies and operatives, who are astonished that she isn’t running away with this race, given Trump’s deep unpopularity and his continuing stream...

    The IRS warned tax practitioners on Friday of a new wave of cyberattacks that allow criminals to remotely access practitioners' computers and file fraudulent tax returns. The attacks come as practitioners prepare for the Oct. 17 extended filing deadline for individual returns; the IRS reported similar attacks before the April 15 deadline. The IRS says that the attacks allow thieves to take control of practitioners' computers, access client data, and complete and e-file tax returns, directing the resulting refunds into the criminals' own accounts. Victims become aware of the attacks when reconciling e-filing acknowledgments.

    Wikipedia ^ | Wikipedia
    The Solar storm of August 28 to September 2, 1859—known as the Carrington Event—was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm during solar cycle 10 (1855–1867). A solar coronal mass ejection(CME) hit Earth's magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record. The flare traveled directly toward Earth, taking 17.6 hours to make the 150 million kilometer (93 million mile) journey. It is believed that the relatively high speed of this CME (typical CMEs take several days to arrive at Earth) was made possible by a prior CME, perhaps the cause of the large aurora event on August 29, that...

According to DEBKAfile’s counter-terrorism sources, the Islamist group was so elated by the outcome of its multiple attacks on Jan. 29, which left at least 40 Egyptian soldiers dead and more than 100 injured in Sinai and Suez towns, that...

    WASHINGTON — As Americans shop in the health insurance marketplace for a second year, President Obama is depending more than ever on the insurance companies that five years ago he accused of padding profits and canceling coverage for the sick. Those same insurers have long viewed government as an unreliable business partner that imposed taxes, fees and countless regulations and had the power to cut payment rates and cap profit margins. But since the Affordable Care Act was enacted in 2010, the relationship between the Obama administration and insurers has evolved into a powerful, mutually beneficial partnership that has been...

    "I was transformed when I met Jesus. I had been to the most beautiful place imaginable with Jesus, and I wanted everyone on earth to experience it too." -Samaa Habib After a young Muslim woman named Samaa Habib came to Christ, she endured intense persecution from her family and the surrounding community, but even greater torment lay ahead when her thriving fellowship of Muslim converts to Christianity was bombed. Samaa was closest to one of the bombs that detonated. She was thrown 10 feet and her body slammed against an opposite wall. Her hair burned off, along with much of...

    The International Association of Exorcists says satanism is gaining popularity. Valter Cascioli, a spokesman for the organization, said there has been an "extraordinary increase in demonic activity" during a segment on Vatican radio. The International Association of Exorcists includes around 300 members. The group met in Rome last week to talk with the Pope and discuss the impact of the occult and Satanism. Cascioli said people are too willing to participate in "ordinary demonic activity." Renowned exorcist Fr. Aldo Buonaiuto recently said, "Many say Halloween is a simple carnival, but in fact there is nothing innocent or fun about it...

    Ouija board séances, marathon-watching “Long Island Medium” and reading witchcraft books may be common teenage obsessions, but for one mother this was a cause for concern -- and for the Catholic Church, it may be the source of a growth industry in exorcisms. Last week, in an advice column in the online Catholic magazine Crux, an anonymous mother asked whether her child’s occult interests could lead to “black lipstick and Satan worship” in the future. Whoever this young girl is, she is not alone. Films like the recent blockbuster hit “Ouija,” ghost-hunting "reality" TV shows and even the Harry Potter...

    Chinese researchers have discovered what they say is the first ‘virological penicillin’ – MIR2911, a molecule found naturally in a Chinese herb called honeysuckle. Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) is a well-known Chinese herb. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it has been used to effectively treat influenza infection for centuries. Several previous studies have confirmed that the herb, usually consumed in the form of a tea, can suppress the replication of influenza virus. However, the active anti-viral components and the mechanism by which they block viral replication have remained unclear. Now, a team of researchers headed by Dr Chen-Yu Zhang of Nanjing University...
