    VIPS Memo to Trump: DNC E-mails ‘Leaked,’ Not ‘Hacked’ July 24, 2017 (EIRNS)—In their persistent drive to free the nation from the paralizing grips of the Russiagate disinformation campaign, the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) released a memo directly intended for the President Monday. It outlines the latest proofs that the DNC e-mails were "leaked" not "hacked"; and the steps Trump could now take to completely dispel the prevalent lies on this matter. VIPS bases its memorandum, and its proof, on information compiled through the "forensic analysis" of the DNC’s computer, which has now been completed. "After examining metadata...
  • Obama's Debt To Harold Ickes

    Barack Obama stands on the brink of capturing the presidential nomination in large part because of Democratic Party reforms initiated by the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s -- movements in which Hillary Clinton's top strategist, Harold Ickes, was a key player. When Obama was barely three, Ickes took part in Mississippi Freedom Summer, helping the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party send a primarily black delegation to the 1964 national convention in Atlantic City. After the Freedom Democratic delegation was denied seating by the virtually all white male Democratic Party establishment, Ickes -- then 24 -- went on to...

    Republicans are filled with glee, as Democrats fall all over themselves, trying to diminish the fact that Bill Clinton's former national security adviser, Sandy Berger, was caught stuffing classified documents and national secrets down his drawers, in his jacket, in his socks, and in a leather portfolio, in order to steal them from the National Archives, and to later destroy some of them. (Berger returned some documents, but only after he was caught.) Watergate, meet BVDgate. For the past thirty years, many observers have thought it the height of paranoia for Pres. Richard Nixon's men to burglarize the offices of...

    Hillary’s record includes supporting the barbaric “contras” against the Nicaraguan people in the 1980s, supporting the NATO bombing of the former Yugoslavia, supporting the ongoing Bush-Iraq War, the ongoing Afghan mess, and as Secretary of State the destruction of the secular state of Libya, the military coup in Honduras, and the present attempt at “regime change” in Syria. Every one of these situations has resulted in more extremism, more chaos in the world, and more danger to our country. Next will be the borders of Russia, China, and Iran. Look at the viciousness of her recent AIPAC speech (don’t say...
  • Snowden warns of government spying in first Russia video

    Moscow (AFP) - US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden warned of dangers to democracy in the first video released of the fugitive since Russia granted him temporary asylum in August. "If we can't understand the policies and programmes of our government we can't grant our consent in regulating them," Snowden said in one of the short video clips posted on the WikiLeaks website Friday night. The anti-secrecy group said the videos were filmed Wednesday when Snowden met with a group of four retired US ex-intelligence workers and activists now seeking to promote ethics within the profession. Snowden, a former National Security...

Labor Unions: A History of Murder and Sabotage The New American 28 February 2011 The raging union-led protests in Wisconsin have resulted in many Americans taking a closer, more critical look at labor unions and their political clout and influence in shaping policy. With the ubiquitous announcement from AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka that he is granted an audience at the White House “nearly every day,” the American people have become more skeptical of unions and the role...

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — George S.

He was 90. A spokesman for McGovern's family, Steve Hildebrand, told The Associated Press by telephone that McGovern died at 5:15 a.m. Sunday at a hospice in Sioux Falls, surrounded by family and lifelong friends.

    Senator George McGovern is receiving hospice care. The family announced Monday afternoon that the senator is in Dougherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls. It was just in August when the former Democratic presidential candidate gave up his homes in Mitchell and Florida to spend more time near family in Sioux Falls. His daughter told The Associated Press on Monday that the longtime South Dakota senator is "coming to the end of his life." Ann McGovern declined to elaborate, but noted her 90-year-old father's recent health problems. Last October, he was treated for exhaustion after a lecture tour. Two months later,...

Bashir's forces are accused of creating the food shortage in the region by bombing fields and preventing villagers from planting crops in July and August....

Jullie Ward, a spokeswoman for Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, said the 89-year-old former senator from South Dakota was admitted to the Sioux Falls hospital for fatigue after completing a lecture tour.

He ran for president three times, making a try for the nomination in 1968 and 1984 in...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern said he plans to board a plane to Cuba on Friday and visit old friend Fidel Castro for the first time in nearly 17 years. McGovern, who turns 89 on July 19, said he wants to see Castro while the former Cuban president is still alive. "I've lost enough friends with regrets that I didn't go see them while they were still alive, so I want to see him," McGovern said Wednesday from a grocery store near his winter home in St. Augustine.
