After living a life of cruelty, Rusty Diamond finally gets the life he’s always deserved. All it took was one caring person to free him from 10-15 years on a chain.
Since Barack Obama first became president, he has been doing everything he can to ensure that his college records remained sealed. He was very successful in this endeavor: until now.
Recently, “Americans for Freedom of Information” released copies of Obama’s transcripts from Occidental College, and what they revealed could get him impeached. According to America’s Freedom Fighters, the documents reveal the future president received financial aid as a student from Indonesia under the name of Barry Soetoro.
The transcript shows that when Obama applied for financial aid, he was awarded with a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. In order to qualify for this scholarship, students must first claim foreign citizenship.
This could finally be the proof that birthers need to get Obama impeached. This coupled with the fact that Obama was born in Kenya and that there is no record of him ever applying for U.S. citizenship certainly does not help his case at all.
The White House is reportedly in panic mode at the moment as they work to find a way to spin this in their favor, but there’s only so much they can do. The reality is that our Constitution states that a president must be born INSIDE this country in order to lead it. Clearly, Obama was not born here, so it’s time for him to get OUT!

A $28,500 deposit was made to Syed Farook’s bank account from WebBank.com on or about Nov.18, some two weeks before he and his wife Tashfeen Malik carried out the San Bernardino massacre, a source close to the investigation told Fox News Monday.
Investigators are exploring whether the transaction was a loan taken out by Farook, who with his wife killed 14 and wounded 21 when they opened fire at a holiday lunch. He earned $53,000 a year with the county as an environmental health inspector.
On its website, the Utah-headquartered WebBank.com describes itself as “a leading provider of national consumer and commercial private-label and bank card financing programs” on a nationwide basis.
On or about Nov.20, Fox News is told Farook converted $10,000 to cash, and withdrew the money at a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino. Afterwards, in the days before the shooting, there were at least three transfers of $5,000 that appear to be to Farook’s mother.
The loan and large cash withdrawal were described to Fox News by the source as “significant evidence of pre-meditation,” and further undercut the premise that an argument at the Christmas party on Dec. 2 led to the shooting.
Fox News is also told that investigators are exploring whether the $10,000 cash withdrawal was used to reimburse Enrique Marquez, the man who bought the two semiautomatic rifles used in the San Bernardino shootings. Marquez is now reportedly answering investigators’ questions.
“Right now our major concern at the FBI, the ATF, and the JTTF (Joint Terrorism Task Force) is determining how those firearms, the rifles in particular, got from Marquez to Farook and to Malik,” assistant special agent in charge with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, John D’Angelo, told reporters in California Monday.
Nothing would make Obama and his appeasers in the media more happy than to be able to call this “workplace violence” and tell everyone that everything is just fine, and they couldn’t have caught these people because they were “lone wolves.”
But if this report is true, not only does it pin more responsibility on Obama for failing to protect us, but it makes him a LIAR for telling the entire country that there was no reason to believe they were connected to an organized terror group.
Here’s a bit more on the source of the story:
The source, who was not authorized to speak on the record about the federal investigation, said there is further evidence of pre-meditation with a charge for the SUV rental processing on Farook’s account Nov. 30, two days before the shooting.
Contacted by Fox News, a woman who was identified by another employee as Laurie Gilbert and a member of WebBank.com’s strategic partnership, said they were “not going to respond to that (questions about the Farook transaction)” before hanging up. Another WebBank.com employee said they were “not talking to the press.”
And what’s worse is that if someone paid Farook to kill Americans, then how many other terror cells are waiting for that final bank transaction in order to being their operations?
And most importantly, WHO sent the money?
What do you think? Is Obama covering up information that would prove the government failed to protect us? Tell us in the comments section below!!

SPECULATION hit fever pitch after NASA discovered lights on a distant world – and now scientists say they have solved the mystery.
Now scientists say they know what the lights are – and the announcement is sure to fuel further talk of alien life.
Because they say the crater contains water, believed to be one of the primary ingredients needed for life.
I never saw this great Russia Today report totally destroying the lies of the corporate whore mainstream media in the United States. They talk about how the disgusting trol, Rachel Madow makes fun of anybody not believing the now totally discredited official fairy tale about 9/11. Remember, over 90% of Americans do not believe the official story about the JFK assassination but these scum traitor media operations keep putting it out there again and again saying that Oswald shot JFK when we all know it’s a lie! If you believe ANYTHING on the TV News besides the sports scores you’re a moron! If you still care about sports and aren’t spreading the truth then you’re part of the problem too!
Spread the word – Turn off the Fake News! It’s all lies!
RT – 9/11 Was an Inside Job!
The biggest financial risk in 2016 may be the one that’s been on stage all year.
In Britain’s popular Christmas pantomime shows, audiences scream out “He’s behind you!” as a warning to the hero whenever the villain appears.
That refrain is almost audible as investment strategists scan 2016 for risk events, as the well-known baddie of plummeting oil prices re-emerges from behind the curtain.
It’s so familiar now, it’s hard to register a further oil price drop as a ‘new’ risk, however.
Financial markets have been living with the consequences of the energy deflation since mid-2014, and the fallout has been pervasive. The idea of another shock of that magnitude is unnerving to say the least.
More than a trillion dollars of market capitalization has been wiped off oil stocks worldwide.
Almost $2 trillion of debt sold by energy and mining companies since 2010, many of them high-yield or ‘junk’ bonds from small shale gas firms, are facing a wave of credit rating downgrades and defaults are rising.
About 2 trillion euros of European government debt is now yielding less than zero percent after oil-seeded deflation scares forced the inflation-targeting European Central Bank to begin a bond-buying spree earlier this year.
The impact on inflation forecasts of yet another sustained drop in oil prices has been alarming as much for central banks about to tighten, such as the Federal Reserve, as for those still easing, like the ECB.
What’s more, the scale of the hit to commodity exporting nations from Russia to Brazil and SouthEast Asia has stood out. Their currencies have imploded, and 2015 is set to mark the first year of a net private capital outflow from emerging markets since 1988.
Given the scale of the oil price drop, it’s not hard to see why markets have rewritten so many scripts.
Since June 2014, Brent crude has plunged 65 percent from $115 per barrel to $40. Much of that implosion happened in the last six months of last year, but any hopes of a rebound this year evaporated amid a toxic mix of a swelling supply glut and steep demand slowdowns in China and emerging economies.
The prospect of living with oil prices that just stay around here and don’t bounce back to at least $60 was already going to be a major challenge for many exposed companies and economies – not least as they brace for next week’s U.S. interest rate rise.
But for all the myriad market risks outlined by banks for the year ahead – ranging from Middle East conflict and geopolitics, central bank policy ‘mistakes’, market liquidity shocks or even Britain voting to exit the European Union – very few list yet another halving of oil prices.
And yet, after last week’s OPEC meeting broke up in disarray with no agreement on supply cuts or even a reference to production caps, crude prices have given up the ghost again.
Brent has plumbed new lows below $40 per barrel this week, while U.S. crude slumped under $37. Even the rolling annual average price, at less than $55, has halved in just 18 months and continues to slide.
‘NEW OIL ORDER’
Long-term oil price bears Goldman Sachs reckon that any thought of a rebound or even stabilization in 2016 are way off the mark and that US crude could shed almost 50 percent from here to $20.
“There is a risk that a milder winter, slower EM growth, and the (potential) lifting of international Iranian sanctions will cause inventories to build further,” the bank told clients this week. “These factors imply that the near-term risks to the forecast remain skewed to the downside. If oil prices breach logistical and storage capacity, they think oil prices could collapse to production costs as low as $20/bbl.”
If that proved correct, it would pull out another thread in this year’s already unravelling market.
And the market stress gets amplified in many different ways – not least in the drain on world markets from lower central bank reserves and petrodollar savings in big energy exporting nations. The rundown of these savings combined with rising Federal Reserve interest rates could well put upward pressure on long-term interest rates over time as the reversal of the commodities supercycle twins with its bond market equivalent.
New investments in global equities, bonds and real estate from oil-fueled sovereign wealth funds are already drying up amid reports of billions of dollars of withdrawals by state institutions from private asset managers.
The foreign assets of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency alone are shrinking at an annual rate of more than $120 billion.
“If the global economic expansion continues, as we expect, then rising investment demand will eventually expose the market consequences of ebbing petrodollar saving flows,” Goldman Sachs told clients.
The combination of lower-for-longer oil and higher real rates could be toxic for corporate credit and emerging markets.
Forecasting a rise in oil and mining sector bond defaults next year and “staggering adverse conditions” for those firms, Moody’s credit rating firm said the only things delaying this in 2015 were temporary cushions in hedging programs, fixed-price contracts and the rundown of existing cash balances.
But that could all change next year if oil prices don’t recover or even continue to fall.
“Diminishing liquidity and restricted access to capital markets are now pushing more firms closer to default,” Moody’s Managing Director Daniel Gates said last week.
And for those itching to return to battered emerging market equity and debt, the message is clear:
“Investors should continue to keep their guard up in 2016,” Morgan Stanley told clients this week.

A major retailer in the Middle East is dumping Donald Trump after he called for Muslims to be banned from traveling to the United States.
Lifestyle, a home decor chain based in Dubai, is removing all Trump-branded products from the shelves of its 195 outlets across the Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and Tanzania.
“In light of the recent statements made by the presidential candidate in the U.S. media, we have suspended sale of all products from the Trump Home décor range,” said Lifestyle CEO Sachin Mundhwa. Lifestyle is a subsidiary of Landmark Group.
The Trump Organization was not immediately available for comment.
Others from the Middle East business community have also expressed dismay with Trump’s remarks.
“It was a shocking comment,” Dubai property mogul Khalam Al-Habtoor told CNN. “These Muslims — they are investing billions and billions in the United States and creating jobs for the Americans.”
Trump has made millions through his multiple holdings — golf resorts and other luxury properties — in countries where Islam is the main religion.
“I think he damaged all his brand in all the Muslim countries … nobody will accept him,” said Al-Habtoor, who initially had supported Trump.
Still, some of Trump’s biggest business partners are refusing to take sides.
Luxury developer DAMAC Properties, which is building the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai, said it would keep business and politics separate.
“Our agreement is with the Trump Organization as one of the premium golf course operators in the world and as such we would not comment further on Mr. Trump’s personal or political agenda, nor comment on the internal American political debate scene,” said Niall McLoughlin, senior vice president at DAMAC Properties, in a statement.

In order to map the space environment at Pluto, Nasa scientists have combined the predictions of several models and released a fresh model of the space environment that governs the mysterious planet system.
Understanding the environment through which our spacecraft travel can ultimately help protect them from radiation and other potentially damaging effects.
“We set the simulation to start in January of 2015, because the particles passing Pluto in July 2015 took some six months to make the journey from the sun,” said Dusan Odstrcil, space weather scientist atNasa who created the model.
The Enlil model, named for the Sumerian god of the wind, is one of the primary models used to simulate the space environment near Earth and is the basis for the New Horizons simulation.
The new, combined model tracks coronal mass ejections (CMEs) – massive burst of gas and magnetic field arising from the solar corona and being released into the solar wind – longer than ever before.
Because particles must travel for many months before reaching Pluto, the CMEs eventually spread out and merge with other CMEs and the solar wind to form larger clouds of particles and magnetic field.
These combined clouds stretch out as they travel away from the sun, forming thin ring shapes by the time they reach Pluto-quite different from the typical balloon shape of CMEs seen here at Earth, the US space agency said in a statement.
The New Horizons spacecraft has recently returned the sharpest images ever of cratered, mountainous and glacial terrains on Pluto and the best close-ups of the mysterious system that humans may see for decades.
These latest pictures are part of a sequence taken near New Horizons’ closest approach to Pluto, with resolutions of about 250-280 feet per pixel – revealing features less than half the size of a city block on Pluto’s diverse surface.
“These close-up images, showing the diversity of terrain on Pluto, demonstrate the power of our robotic planetary explorers to return intriguing data to scientists back here on planet Earth,” said John Grunsfeld, former astronaut and associate administrator for Nasa’s Science Mission Directorate.
Land Rover has unveiled the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible – Range Rover Evoque – that combines the bold design and refinement of Evoque with comprehensive specification and a sophisticated folding roof to create a no compromise, all-season convertible.
The ground breaking and distinctive shape of the original Range Rover Evoque lends itself to an elegant convertible design and the new model sits at the pinnacle of the Evoque portfolio as the most exclusive and capable convertible in the world, said a statement from the auto giant.
As the fifth member of the Range Rover family – and the first-ever convertible – the highly desirable new model combines traditional Range Rover luxury with a distinctive four-seat design and versatile storage.
The Range Rover Evoque Convertible has been engineered to meet Land Rover’s most rigorous standards, ensuring exceptional structural rigidity, trademark refinement, outstanding levels of safety and unrivalled breadth of capability, it stated.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director and chief creative officer, dubbed the Range Rover Evoque Convertible as a vehicle for all seasons. “Its uniquely distinctive design and world-class engineering adds another dimension to the Range Rover family, further enhancing its desirability and appeal,” he remarked.
According to him, the global SUV market is forecast to grow by 20 per cent over the next five years. Evoque Convertible will play a key role in continuing Range Rover’s 45-year success story, pioneering an all-new SUV sector.
Evoque Convertible’s eye-catching exterior design is made possible by a sophisticated fabric roof shaped to create a crisply defined silhouette that remains faithful to the original design. Its Z-fold mechanism lays flush with the rear bodywork for a sleek, uncluttered appearance when lowered, he stated.
The fabric roof is the longest and widest currently fitted to any vehicle on sale today.
The fully-automated roof stows in 18 seconds, and can be raised in 21 seconds, at speeds up to 30mph. When closed it provides high standards of refinement with a layer of acoustic insulation ensuring interior comfort on a par with five-door Evoque. In addition, the position of the roof doesn’t affect loadspace, with a generous 251-litre boot offering unrivalled practicality for a convertible.
At the heart of the high-class cabin is an all-new, high-resolution 10.2-inch touchscreen with Jaguar Land Rover’s next-generation infotainment system, InControl Touch Pro, which debuts in a Land Rover. Raising the standard of connectivity for the brand, the highly-responsive and super-fast InControl Touch Pro offers seamless smartphone integration.
Land Rover said safety hasn’t been overlooked with a Roll-Over Protection Device featuring deployable roll-over bars hidden in the rear bodywork. It deploys two aluminium bars within 90 milliseconds in the unlikely event of a roll-over situation to create a survival space for occupants.
Land Rover’s full suite of lightweight, all-aluminium four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines is available with the potent 240PS Si4 petrol providing outstanding levels of performance and refinement.
Evoque Convertible is underpinned by Land Rover’s world-class all-terrain capability, using the same advanced technologies as Evoque five-door and Coupé derivatives. A customary choice of four-wheel drive powertrains combines with Land Rover’s nine-speed automatic transmission, Terrain Response system, Wade Sensing and All-Terrain Progress Control to ensure Evoque is a convertible for all seasons.
The new Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be produced at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the UK, alongside the five door and Coupé bodystyles, and goes on sale across from Spring 2016 in more than 170 markets worldwide.
Since 1948 Land Rover has been manufacturing authentic 4x4s that represent true ‘breadth of capability’ across the model range. Defender, Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover and Range Rover Evoque each define the world’s 4×4 sectors, with 80 per cent of this model range exported to over 170 countries.-TradeArabia News Service
