    Las Vegas Shooter Targeted Secret Government Planes In Addition To Victims Stephen Paddock ‘might have held anti-American views,’ expert says. By Radar Staff Posted on Oct 5, 2017 @ 13:27PM Las Vegas Shooter Targeted Secret Government Planes In Addition To Victims thumbnail Las Vegas madman Stephen Paddock not only targeted innocent concertgoers — but also seemingly the hanger for the U.S. government’s super secret JANET airlines. Law enforcement sources exclusively told RadarOnline.com that just afield of the two massive, circular fuel tanks at which Paddock fired, lies the shadowy terminal for JANET. “JANET is essentially an airline that doesn’t exist,”...
  • Was CIA Director Brennan's 1976 Vote for a Communist Just a Youthful Indiscretion?

    During a panel discussion Thursday at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference, CIA Director John Brennan was trying to make the point that just because an individual has an “activist” background, that wouldn’t, or shouldn’t, keep him from working for the federal government in sensitive positions. After all, he said, the CIA hired him even after he admitted voting for a communist in the 1976 presidential elections.In 1980, Brennan was trying to obtain a top security clearance for the Central Intelligence Agency, and part of the process involved taking a lie detector test. He was asked: “Have you ever...

    President Obama on Monday said he has selected W. Neil Eggleston to become chief counsel, adding the expertise of a veteran attorney who was involved in some of the most heated legal battles of the Clinton administration. Eggleston, a white-collar defender who is now at Kirkland & Ellis, will replace departing White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler in mid-May. "Neil brings extraordinary expertise, credentials, and experience, to our team," Obama said in a statement. "He has a passion for public service, is renowned for his conscientiousness and foresight, and I look forward to working closely with him in the coming years."...
  • CNN: Is Hillary Clinton Undermining Our Values And Anti-Terror Strategy For Saying Radical Islam?

    A day after President Obama went on a rant about why he doesn't use the phrase “radical Islam," CNN asked if the leaders, like Hillary Clinton who have used the phrase, have undermined U.S. strategy. What should’ve been a relatively straightforward briefing on the threats posed by ISIS turned into a tirade against Republicans and Donald Trump from the president. He also used it as a staging ground to lecture us about reinstating the so-called assault weapons ban and confirming a treasury nominee that’s been held up for over a year. Yesterday, CNN’s Michelle Kosinski pressed the White House on the...
  • FBI criminal investigation emails: Clinton approved CIA drone assassinations with her cellphone

    The FBI has been conducting a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information for months. An explosive new report reveals just what it is that the FBI is looking to: emails in which then-Secretary of State Clinton approved CIA drone assassinations in Pakistan with her cellphone. From 2011 on, the State Department had a secret arrangement with the CIA, giving it a degree of say over whether or not a drone killing would take place. The U.S. drone program has killed hundreds of civilians in Pakistan and other countries. Under Sec. Clinton, State Department officials approved almost every...

    WSJ ^ | June 9, 2016 | By ADAM ENTOUS and DEVLIN BARRETT
    At the center of a criminal probe involving Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information is a series of emails between American diplomats in Islamabad and their superiors in Washington about whether to oppose specific drone strikes in Pakistan. The 2011 and 2012 emails were sent via the “low side’’—government slang for a computer system for unclassified matters—as part of a secret arrangement that gave the State Department more of a voice in whether a Central Intelligence Agency drone strike went ahead, according to congressional and law-enforcement officials briefed on the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. Some of the emails were...

    While Iran’s march toward a nuclear bomb has provoked a major clash between the White House and Congress, Iran’s march toward conventional domination of the Arab world has been largely overlooked. In Washington, that is. The Arabs have noticed. And the pro-American ones, the Gulf Arabs in particular, are deeply worried. This week, Iranian-backed Houthi rebels seized control of the Yemeni government, heretofore pro-American. In September, they overran Sanaa, the capital. On Tuesday, they seized the presidential palace. On Thursday, they forced the president to resign. The Houthi have local religious grievances, being Shiites in a majority Sunni land. But...

"He broke up with me," the once ardent supporter and campaigner for Obama told the Black Entertainment Network (BET) in a recent interview. The A-list movie star and Democrat said there were "a lot of things" he questions about Obama's second term, specifically the legality of drone strikes and the NSA's secret surveillance programs.

    Drones -- unmanned flying machines -- will soon fill our skies. They conjure up fears, especially among some of my fellow libertarians, of spying and death from above. These fears aren't groundless. President Bush approved the use of armed drones against suspected terrorists overseas, and President Obama vastly increased their use. Drones have killed thousands of people in places such as Pakistan and Yemen, countries against which we have not declared war. Drones keep getting more sophisticated. The Air Force is now developing what it calls MAVs, Micro Air Vehicles, tiny drones that can quietly search for an individual terrorist...

    There’s something ‘off’ about President Barack Hussein Obama allegedly telling aides while discussing drone strikes, I’m ‘really good at killing people’. Obama doesn’t own up to anything, even including who he is. Obama has a track record for never taking ownership of anything other than that which other people have accomplished over a lifetime of sweat. In this latest revelation, one can almost hear strains of the Peter Gunn theme song, or with just a little imagination find Obama’s smirking omnipresent face on display down at the post office among ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ posters of yore. Portraying himself as...

    Eric Tillberg, writer on Policy Mic says The War On Terror is Over, and the Terrorists Won. After the first two shots of the War on Terror on September 11, 2001, the first major battle of the war occurred, and was lost, on October 26, 2001. This was the day the PATRIOT Act was signed into law by President Bush. Terrorists, by killing 3,000 people in a spectacular fashion, goaded the United States into compromising its values and betraying its citizens. As a followup, the terrorists won another victory with the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security on November...

    Republican Rand Paul took to the floor of the U.S. Senate this week to filibuster John Brennan's nomination to become head of the CIA. "I will speak as long as it takes," the junior senator from Kentucky said, "until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court." I imagine many Americans following news of the filibuster, which...
