Freedom Outpost – by Tim Brown
Do you remember when Homeland Secretary Jeh Johnson said that the united States’ borders were “not open to illegal migration,” and that he would “send you back consistent with our laws and values”? How about when Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah said something similar? No? Well, knowing that Obama and his administration are not exactly fixed on executing immigration laws, the release of 52,000 illegal kids into the population in fiscal year 2016 should come as no surprise.

Hillary Clinton‘s lawyer may have allowed hackers to obtain all of the former secretary of state’s emails by reviewing the contents of her private server on a laptop tied to Chinese cyberspies, a House Republican charged on Friday.
Heather Samuelson was one of the Clinton aides who sifted through the private email server used during Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, and helped decide which would be designated as personal messages and which were work-related. That’s when the potential Chinese hacks may have taken place, because she used two laptops made by Lenovo, a company with ties to the Chinese government that has sold laptops for years with malware pre-installed on the computer.

For the past six weeks Oregonians have been treated to a political trial of the “Malheur 7” (Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shawna Cox, Jeff Banta, David Fry, Neal Wampler and Ken Medenbach,). I was privileged to have a ringside seat at the trial as a volunteer researcher and paralegal for Ryan Bundy (who represents himself) at the trial. Continue reading

America is entering the most volatile and dangerous period in its 240 year history. Unfortunately for the 7 billion others who share the earth with us, we have a nasty habit of making our problems their reality.
There are several facts which are certain. The first is that the US and indeed the entire world has more Unpayable Debts now than at anytime in history. And as Dr Michael Hudson often reminds us, Unpayable Debts are never repaid. Continue reading
American documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has described anyone planning to vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump as a “legal terrorist” alleging that Trump intends to “blow up the old way.”
Moore’s remarks came in an interview published Friday by the US-basedRolling Stone magazine in which he called on those considering voting for Trump to “think about the damage they could do by being a legal terrorist on November 8th.” Continue reading
You know all of those cool, sci-fi gadgets that people are beginning to get that are connected to the internet in their homes? The voice controlled thermostats, the wireless printers and cameras, the home security systems, the food scale that sends the calories to your phone app, those “smart” appliances that text you to pick up milk, and the DVRS that can be programmed via your phone from work?
Apparently, those things may not be so smart after all because they played a big role in the cyber attack that took place last Friday. Security analysts believe that Friday’s attack on popular websites such as Reddit, Twitter, Netflix, and Spotify was the first one carried out by hackers who used the “Internet of Things.” Continue reading

Concern is growing over revelations that voting machines in a significant number of states will be controlled by a company tied directly to billionaire leftist George Soros and his personal quest to create a nationless, borderless global state.
The U.K.-based Smartmatic company has provided voting machines for 16 states, including important battleground states like Florida and Arizona. The chairman of Smartmatic, Mark Malloch Brown, is a former UN official and sits on the board of Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Continue reading

HINDMAN, Ky. (AP) — Jim Justice, a coal billionaire running for West Virginia governor, owes millions in back taxes to some of Appalachia’s most impoverished counties, including one in Kentucky that is struggling to pay the debt on a new rec center and has turned the lights off in its parks and reduced hot meals for senior citizens.
Many of these counties have been devastated by the collapse of the coal industry over the past few years, and their financial struggles are not all Justice’s fault. But county officials say things would be a lot easier if he paid up. Continue reading
BARTELLA, Iraq (AP) — Iraqi forces fought their way into two villages near Mosul on Monday as the offensive to retake the extremist-held city entered its second week and a rights group urged a probe into a suspected airstrike that hit a mosque, killing over a dozen civilians.
Iraqi special forces began shelling IS positions before dawn near Bartella, a historically Christian town to the east of Mosul that they had retaken last week. With patriotic music blaring from loudspeakers on their Humvees, they then pushed into the village of Tob Zawa, about 9 kilometers (5 ½ miles) from Mosul, amid heavy clashes. Continue reading
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — A maintenance crew had slowed down traffic on a California highway through the night, and the work had gone on for hours without problems. Then a tour bus returning to Los Angeles from a casino trip slammed into the back of a semi-truck. Passengers who were asleep on the bus woke up to loud screams and the sound of crushing metal.
The gambling jaunt ended in one of the deadliest wrecks in California history with 13 people killed and 31 others injured. Authorities said the bus was going much faster than the truck, causing it to plow about 15 feet into the truck on Interstate 10 just north of the desert resort town of Palm Springs. Continue reading

AT&T’s proposed $85 billion takeover of Time Warner generated skepticism among both Democrats and Republicans on Sunday, making it more likely that regulators will closely scrutinize the effort to create a new telecommunications and media giant.
The biggest deal of the year, announced just over two weeks before the Nov. 8 U.S. election, is a gamble on a victory for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and a continuation of the status quo on anti-trust and regulatory enforcement. Continue reading

Donald Trump has become most well known for his anti-immigration stance during his current election campaign. However, it seems that he did not always espouse these same beliefs. Trump is a person who has done business internationally, across borders, and just three years ago he wrote an opinion piece for CNN where he explicitly called for open borders. Continue reading

While mainstream media has dutifully echoed the U.S. government narrative that Russia is to blame for increasing tensions, we at the Free Thought Project have reported on the numerous ways in which the U.S. has actually been the provocateur.
Earlier in 2016, a U.S. military official said the U.S. “needs and wants Russia as an enemy,” which was followed by a litany of falsehoods about Russian threats from elected and appointed officials. A hacked email showed a NATO general plotting conflict with Russia, as American and NATO military forces amass along Russia’s borders. Continue reading

The US has back-tracked from its earlier claims that Yemen’s Houthi rebels attacked the USS Mason, which led the US to bomb Yemen and enter yet another war in the Middle East.
Since March 2015, Yemen has been the site of a brutal, one-sided war between Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, and Saudi Arabia. The Houthi rebels overthrew then-Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, who many Yemenis perceived as a US puppet, and the Houthi revolution enjoyed considerable public support. However, a Houthi-led government threatened to all, but eradicate Saudi influence in Yemen, propelling the Saudis to begin a vicious bombing campaign that has claimed the lives of over 10,000, the majority of them civilians.
