via ZeroHedge – A Bosnian Croat wartime commander died on Wednesday shortly after he drank poison, seconds after U.N. appeals judges upheld his 20-year sentence for war crimes against Bosnian Muslims.
Slobodan Praljak, 72, a former wartime leader, tilted back his head and took a swing from a flask or glass as the judge read out the verdict. The man’s defense lawyer then told the court that the accused had “taken poison.” The presiding judge stopped the proceedings and ordered a doctor to be called, Reuters reports.
“I just drank poison,” he said. “I am not a war criminal. I oppose this conviction.”
Praljak sat back down and slumped in his chair, a lawyer who was in the courtroom at the time said. The presiding judge suspended the hearing and called for a doctor. An ambulance was at the building and paramedics went to the courtroom.
This is a phone call to the Social Security Administration Office Main Number 1-800-772-1213. It is to discover what kinds of identity documents are acceptable for the Agents’ Identity in a POWER OF ATTORNEY (POA) where applying for a Social Security Card (which IS the Principal -or at least one iteration of many *strawman* principals).
In the beginning, they deny POAs. A Legalism is then read for their compliance and then the SSA accepts POAs. The SSA is then drawn out on the carpet for trying to first refuse POAs… as that is “unauthorized practice of law.”

via PRI – If you’ve followed the War on Terror at all, you’re almost certainly familiar with the US detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba — a US prison that exists outside the realm of the US justice system.
Now, it turns out, there’s a secret US detention system in the War on Drugs, too — and this one is aboard US Coast Guard cutters sailing in the Pacific Ocean.
In an effort to staunch the flow of cocaine and other hard drugs from South America to Central America and points north, Coast Guard cutters have been deployed farther and farther from the shore in the Pacific Ocean. When these cutters capture a boat carrying drugs, the smugglers are brought onto the ships and kept shackled to the deck, sometimes outside in the elements, until the Coast Guard makes arrangements for them to be transported back to the US for trial.
But this isn’t a wait of just a few hours or days. Often, these waits can last weeks or months, according to new reporting from The New York Times. Coast Guard officials say they can do this because the drug smugglers aren’t under arrest until they reach US shores, but some of the worst cases are drawing criticism even from Coast Guard officials.
”[T]here is a reasonable basis to believe that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been committed in connection with the armed conflict in Afghanistan,” Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a statement.
Bensouda has been pushing for high ranking military officials to be prosecuted since November of last year when she released a report about evidence of war crimes in Afghanistan.
In the report, Bensouda wrote that there is “a reasonable basis to believe the war crimes of torture and ill-treatment had been committed by US military forces deployed to Afghanistan and in secret detention facilities operated by the Central Intelligence Agency, principally in the 2003-2004 period, although allegedly continuing in some cases until 2014.”
Via ZeroHedge – Following intense pressure from Irish MPs, including some within her own party, RTE, Ireland’s national broadcaster, is reporting that Deputy Prime Minister, Frances Fitzgerald, has stepped down ahead of a no-confidence votewhich was scheduled for 8.00pm tonight in the Irish Parliament. A successful no-confidence vote would have brought down Ireland’s minority government at a critical moment in the ongoing Brexit discussions.
Fitzgerald’s position had become untenable following the release of a cache of emails which suggested that she knew more about legal efforts to discredit a police whistle blower than it had earlier appeared. Fitzgerald said repeatedly that she did nothing wrong and some of her colleagues in the ruling centre-right Fine Gael party had continued to defend her publicly. As Bloomberg notes.

As California prepares for the legalisation of recreational marijuana in 2018, one man is pushing for the state to become the first to decriminalise magic mushrooms.
Kevin Saunders, a mayoral candidate for the city of Marina, just south of the San Francisco Bay, has filed a proposal that would exempt adults over the age of 21 from any penalties over possessing, growing, selling or transporting psychedelic psilocybin mushrooms.

Hundreds of military officials – including some of the highest-ranking brass in the Navy – are accused of helping a shadowy Asian merchant fleece Uncle Sam for tens of millions of dollars… and you probably haven’t heard a peep about it.
It’s called the “Fat Leonard” scandal, and the investigation into bribes and corruption one of the biggest in U.S. military history. The Navy has investigated 440 people, including 60 admirals, for possibly taking bribes in exchange for phony government contracts and sweetheart deals.
That means the Navy suspects that up to one-third of all its admirals were on-the-take from a foreign agent.
“Fat Leonard” is Leonard Glenn Francis – a 6’3”, 360-pound Malaysian businessman who makes his money servicing naval vessels in the Pacific.
Sehon Marshall, 43, who serves as a counselor for the Permanent Mission of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, allegedly decked his wife, Sandra Marshall, 36, after a verbal fight broke out at their Canarsie house at 1:15 a.m., police sources said.
Cops launched an investigation and found that Marshall struck the woman with a closed fist, leaving her with a bloody lip, the sources said.
But officers couldn’t bust the thug-in-a-suit — because he’s protected by a law forbidding prosecution of foreign diplomats in the US, the sources said.
via The Sun: by Jasper Hamill – Technocrats armed with faulty science continue to claim that the sky is falling: overpopulation, global warming, deforestation, extinction of species, etc. The only possible solution offered is Sustainable Development run by themselves.

More than 15,000 scientists from around the world have signed a terrifying letter warning of an imminent apocalypse.
The message is called “Warning to Humanity” and is an ominous vision of the grim fate awaiting our planet.
The message updates an original Warning from the Union of Concerned Scientists, which was made in 1992.
Now the global scientific community’s view of the future is even bleaker.
In the “post Weinstein” world we now find ourselves in we have seen dozens and dozens of prominent figures in Hollywood, politics, and the media be accused of a wide range of sexual attacks on women.
From groping all the way to rape, powerful establishment figures are being outed as sexual predators across the country, with the mainstream media declaring that all accusers must, at least initially, be believed.
Amazingly, at the same time, mainstream media talking heads have either specifically ignored the numerous allegations against Bill Clinton or actually claimed that his accusers are discredited and cannot be believed. (Keep in mind all other accusers are automatically assumed to be telling the truth.)
With that being said, it was only a matter of time before that dam broke as well and now, with a series of explosive comments by an Obama and Clinton ally, one can hope that Bill Clinton may finally be brought to justice with Hillary forever shamed for her role in attacking the women who came forward.
A judge has dismissed a lawsuit from the sixth man who has claimed he was sexually assaulted by Dennis Hastert when he was a young boy.
A judge has chosen to protect former U.S. House speaker and admitted child rapist, Dennis Hastert, by throwing out a lawsuit filed by a man who claims he was violently raped by Hastert when he was a child—and this is not the first time the man claims he has been denied justice.
According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, Judge Robert Pilmer dismissed the case citing the statute of limitations. The victim in the case, identified as “Richard Doe” in court documents, is the sixth individual to claim he was sexually assaulted by Hastert.
The man claimed that when he was in fourth grade in 1973, he was riding his bike in Yorkville, Illinois, when he stopped to use the restroom near Yorkville High School. His lawsuit states that a large man opened the door of the stall he was in, and then forcefully sodomized him.
A small Michigan township is making a stand against Nestle, temporarily blocking the company from pumping millions of gallons of groundwater for bottled water. Citizens near Evart, Michigan became outraged when Nestlé proposed to build even larger pipelines to increase the flow of water to its plant in Standwood. Global News CA details the local resistance to Nestlé’s proposed expansion to collect even more ground water:
The added capacity provided by the proposed booster pump would make it possible for Nestlé to extract an estimated 1,500 litres of groundwater per minute, representing more than 4.2 million bottles of water in a 24-hour period. That’s equal to 794 million litres of water annually.
