Britain is at war with Yemen. So why does nobody know about it?  
Guardian Owen Jones  Thursday 28 January 2016

Saudi Arabia has British military advisers and continues to bomb Yemeni civilians with British weapons. Yet our government is strangely quiet about it.

Britain is arming and aiding a fundamentalist dictatorship that’s bombing and killing civilians. This is an incontestable fact. The Saudi tyranny – gay-hating women-oppressors who kicked off the year with ~a mass beheading – has been waging war in Yemen for 10 months.

If the 26 million Yemenis were being besieged and bombed by an official enemy of the west, we might expect emotive calls to “do something” and militarily intervene. Well, we are intervening: not simply by supplying weapons but even by providing the Saudi-led coalition of Arab dictators with British military advisers. As the SNP’s Angus Robertson put it to the prime minister’s face, Britain is “effectively at war” – and yet few Britons know anything about it.

Since Saudi-led forces intervened in the conflict between President Hadi and Houthi rebels last March, around 6,000 Yemenis have been killed, perhaps half of them civilians. With the country under naval blockade, what the UN was already calling a “humanitarian catastrophe” six months ago has been unleashed. Eight in every 10 Yemenis are now dependent on humanitarian aid, and most do not have “adequate access to clean water or sanitation”, according to the UN.
Bombing raids have shredded the country’s healthcare system: 130 medical facilities have been targeted, including those run by Médecins Sans Frontières – “a total disregard for the rules of war”, as MSF says itself. The risk of famine looms: the UN believes more than 14 million people are food insecure, half of them severely so, while nearly one in 10 have been driven from their homes.
Yemen is a human-made disaster, and the fingerprints of the west are all over it. Consider what a UN panel report seen by this newspaper has revealed: that airstrikes have targeted “civilians and civilian objects, in violation of humanitarian law”, including everything from refugee camps to schools to weddings to buses.

More than 100 sorties, they believe, relate to “violations of international humanitarian law”. Yes, all sides have been accused of war crimes. But, according to the UN’s high commission for human rights, the Saudi forces are responsible for “a disproportionate amount” of attacks on civilians. No wonder, then, the war is being described as Saudi Arabia’s very own Vietnam.

Bad Rap: Why B.o.B Is Wrong About a Flat Earth
LiveScience.com By Jesse Emspak
A throwdown between a rapper and an astrophysicist centers on whether the Earth is a sphere, a scientific question that was supposedly settled in the third century B.C.
Rapper-singer Bobby Ray Simmons Jr. (known as B.o.B) released a track called "Flatline" on Monday (Jan. 25), dissing noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson after the two had engaged in a Twitter argument over Earth's shape, which B.o.B purports to be flat. In the track, B.o.B hollers, "Aye, Neil Tyson need to loosen up his vest / They'll probably write that man one hell of a check," and even embeds part of a talk by Tyson in which he says, "So it's not actually a sphere, it's an ... it's oblate, it's officially an oblate spheroid."
Earth's oblate spherical-ness was determined long ago. While the ancient Greeks were among the first to discern that the Earth is a sphere, there were still people who didn't think it could be true, because, well, look around. The ground is flat and plainly so all the way to the horizon. [Religion and Science: 6 Visions of Earth's Core]
This common-sense reasoning is, in part, what drives more modern flat-Earth beliefs. In the last century a whole society — the Flat Earth Society — has grown up around it. The 19th-century version was called the Zetetic Society, which eventually disbanded.
So what do flat-Earthers really believe? A look at the Flat Earth Society website gives some answers here. Their model of the Earth looks something like the logo of the United Nations, with the North Pole at the center. The Earth is a round disc, surrounded by an ice wall (Antarctica, which the U.N. logo doesn't show). The sun and moon are each about 32 miles across, and hang about 3,000 miles above the surface of the Earth.
Gravity doesn't enter into their argument, because flat-Earth cosmology says the whole disc is accelerating at exactly 32 feet per second in the "up" direction.

I'd be kinda disappointed if it was flat.
My tanner's worth. Shooting stars say there is no physical barrier. Temperature gradients to the equator and the polar jet stream argue against its being flat and rotating storms argue for its spin.
The article doesn't answer the Q why there is no GPS in the southern oceans and why some air routes appear to be ridiculous on a globe yet make sense on a flat Earth.

UN: Saudi Arabia Breaking International Law by Bombing Yemen
Telesur 28 January 2016
A United Nations report on Yemen seen by The Guardian says the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen is carelessly killing civilians.
There have been “widespread and systematic” attacks on civilians by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, which at times treats entire cities as “military targets, a United Nations panel said in an unpublished report seen and reported on by The Guardian Wednesday.
The U.N. said there were “119 coalition sorties relating to violations of international humanitarian law.” The panel of experts on Yemen used satellite imagery to look at areas before and after bombings, according to The Guardian.
“The panel also documented three alleged cases of civilians fleeing residential bombings and being chased and shot at by helicopters,” the paper reported.
The coalition’s airstrikes also targeted “camps for internally displaced persons and refugees; civilian gatherings, including weddings; civilian vehicles, including buses; civilian residential areas; medical facilities; schools; mosques; markets, factories and food storage warehouses; and other essential civilian infrastructure, such as the airport in Sana’a, the port in Hudaydah and domestic transit routes.”
Saudi Arabia and 10 of its regional allies launched the operation in March last year in a bid to reinstate their Yemeni ally, exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, after Ansarullah rebels, known also as Houthis, took control of the capital Sanaa and other parts of the country.
The U.N. report comes after the news that the U.K. has sold over US$1.4 billion worth of missiles, rockets and bombs to Saudi Arabia.

Britain’s ‘proxy war’ in Yemen condemned by critics

RT 28 Jan, 2016
Britain is at war in Yemen and is arming and facilitating a brutal Saudi dictatorship that is bombing innocent civilians, a growing chorus of critics has warned.
The allegation that Britain is engaged in covert warfare in Yemen was first made by Scottish National Party (SNP) Westminster leader Angus Robertson during a heated discussion in Parliament on Monday. However, it has since been echoed by political commentators and human rights campaigners, who are demanding the government come clean on the role of UK forces in the Saudi-led campaign.

SouthFront: Syria battlespace, Jan. 28, 2016

VT By South Front on January 28, 2016
On Jan. 27 the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies captured hilltops of Tal Hamad and Tal Koum in the Sheikh Miskeen countryside expanding a security zone around this city. The clashes with Al-Nusra, Jaysh Al-Islam and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) are continuing in this area. The town of Nawa is the next expected target of the loyalists’ offensive. If it’s captured, the Syrian army will be able to continue the advance in direction of Jassim.
Following the fierce clashes, the SAA is continuing to push ISIS back from the ground West from the Kuweires airbase. The village of Wadi’ah and its surroundings have been liberated by the pro-government forces.
The Syrian warplanes targeted at least six bases, including a training camp, in al-Tayibeh farms, As Sin and Barlehiya in the Eastern countryside of the Aleppo city. The militant groups’ fortified strongholds in al-Enjlisiyeh graveyard region and al-Jandoul were also targeted by the Syrian Air Force.
The SAA’s artillery and warplanes heavily bombarded the militant groups’ defense lines and strongholds near the town of Kinsabba in the Latakia province. The pro-government sources argue that the militants suffered a heavy death toll in these attacks.
Russian officers have reportedly met with Syrian Kurdish officials in northeastern Syria to hold talks on military coordination during the possible offensive of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) on Jarabulus located on the Turkish border. The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces have already provided support to the Kurds’ advances against ISIS. However, the Russian mission reinforces the narrative that Russia is enhancing ties with the YPG and other armed groups, such as Assyrian and Arab militias, in the north.

[Oregon shooting] The Political Assassination of LaVoy Finicum?

By Anthony Hall on January 27, 2016
Hall’s Update: The Duff/Dean version** to confuse my essay’s introduction is not consistent with Victoria Sharp’s eyewitness testimony given to North West Liberty News
[Editor’s update: A witness that was stopped and arrested in the first car refutes the allegations made in this early reporting of an execution with his hands up in the air. Finicum had run the first road block, and was not fired upon, and crashed into a snowbank while trying to run the backup road block.
He exited the car and charged the officers and was shot then. This witness was at a distance himself but I suspect we will have video camera evidence of both stops as that is routine now in these situations where both parties want proof of what happened.
The rest of everyone stopped are alive. Those with warrants were arrested and the released. I am sure we will be hearing more about this in the next few days. For my two cents these folks should have been aware that some sort of arrest could be expected and should have had a game plan to move the dispute into the courts, as will happen now. Any kind of shooting served neither the government’s position nor those arrested, injured or killed. The legal process will not churn on it what will be a high profile case…Jim W. Dean]

by Anthony Hall, Canada
According to a report on his own You Tube channel, LaVoy Finicum was killed on the evening of January 26, 2016 by a US special forces unit while the deceased Arizona rancher “was on his knees with his hands up.”
Finicum is said to have been shot “three times” in an episode that also included the arrest on Highway 395 in Oregon of some of the leadership of the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom. Nevada Assembly woman Michele Fiore also reported in a tweet that Finicum was shot by federal authorities with his hands up.Screen Shot 2016-01-27 at 10.14.51 PM
In a more recent report, North West Liberty News published an interview with Victoria Sharp who was in the “ambushed” car carrying the targeted entourage with LaVoy Finicum at the wheel. She said that Finicum was shot six extra times by special forces police after he was already downed by police gunfire.
Sharp confirmed that Finicum was initially shot outside the car with his hands in the air. She dismissed the story of three bullets being shot as bunk and indicated that at least 120 shots were fired at the car. She spoke of about 4o police vehicles being involved in the ambush with “FBIScreen Shot 2016-01-28 at 1.02.53 AM snippers” posted everywhere, including on perches in surrounding trees.
The group had left the camp of the armed protestors that took control of the federal building overseeing the Federal Malheur Wildlife Reservation. The entourage, including Ammon Bundy and Ryan Bundy who was wounded in the episode, was on their way to address a meeting in the Oregon community of John Day. Police reportedly apprehended a second group in an episode that at this moment remains ill defined.

Ban Ki-moon: It’s Time to Confront the Israeli Gangsters and Hoodlums

By Jonas E. Alexis on January 27, 2016
Preston James was right in referring to people like Netanyahu as Satan worshippers whose diabolical plan is to control or manipulate much of the West and perhaps the world—if they can.
"Ladies and gentlemen, the guy next to me here is a complete maniac who desperately needs some tranquilizers. Do we have any psychiatrist here?"
“Ladies and gentlemen, the guy next to me here is a complete maniac who desperately needs some tranquilizers. I’m sick and tired of his Oy. Do we have any psychiatrist here?”
…by Jonas E. Alexis
It’s not every single day that you get to hear an agent of the New World Order criticizing the Israeli gangsters and hoodlums. But we do have an example here. Ban Ki-moon has recently declared that:
“After nearly 50 years of occupation—after decades of waiting for the fulfilment of the Oslo promises—Palestinians are losing hope. Young people especially are losing hope. They are angered by the stifling policies of the occupation.”
Ban Ki-moon moved on to say that it is “human nature to react to occupation.”
“As oppressed peoples have demonstrated throughout the ages, it is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism. So-called facts on the ground in the occupied West Bank are steadily chipping away the viability of a Palestinian state and the ability of Palestinian people to live in dignity.”
He also added that he is against terrorism and both sides should refrain from terrorist acts. He continued:
“We issue statements. We express concern. We voice solidarity. But life hasn’t changed. And some Palestinians wonder: Is this all meant to simply run out the clock? They ask: Are we meant to watch as the world endlessly debates how to divide land while it disappears before our very eyes?”
Ban Ki-moon also said that Israel’s manipulation of the real issue is a “settlement enterprise.”
This is a fair assessment. Let us be clear that Ban Ki-moon has been on the Israeli side for years. But how did the mad man in Tel Aviv respond?
“The U.N. Secretary General’s remarks give a tailwind to terrorism. There is no justification for terrorism,” Netanyahu said. “The secretary general encourages terror instead of fighting against terror. The secretary general forgot what the U.N.’s role is. Terror must not be encouraged for any reason whatsoever.”
Preston James was right in referring to people like Netanyahu as Satan worshippers whose diabolical plan is to control much of the West and perhaps the world—if they can. But there is no way that people of reason will allow that to happen. So, they continue to propagate lies and fabrications as gospel truth. Netanyahu again said:
“The Palestinian murderers do not want to build a state. They want to destroy a state, and they say this openly. They want to murder Jews simply because they are Jews, and they say this openly. They do not murder for peace, and they do not murder for human rights.”[1]
Last March, Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan called Netanyahu’s speech before Congress “bullshit.”[2]
When Netanyahu was running around like wild chickens saying crazy things like Iran was in the process of building nuclear bombs within weeks and months, Israel’s military chief and Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz came out and declared that Iran was “rational” and was not in the process of building any nuclear bomb.[3] In fact, the Israeli military made it very clear last year that Iran was not the most dangerous threat.
The historical record tells us that this is consistent with Iran’s moral position.[4] On the contrary, it is Israel that has been in violation of nuclear weapons policy.[5]
So, the mad man in Tel Aviv lied again. We can predict with certainty that he will lie again in the next few days or weeks. Good luck in proving me wrong.
Do you see why this man should be in a padded cell? Do you see why he is dangerous to society and even to himself?

US, UK Spies Hacked Israel Air Force Networks: Leaked
New leaks by fugitive former US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden reveal the United States and Britain monitored Israeli air force’s secret flights and communications, reports say.
The leaks point to a hacking operation dating back to 1998, Reuters reported.
Israel voiced disappointment at the disclosures published on Friday in at least two media outlets.
The spy operation, codenamed "Anarchist," was run out of a Cyprus base and also targeted other Middle East states.
Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, claimed the US National Security Agency (NSA) and its British counterpart GCHQ spied on Israeli air force drone missions against Gaza, Syria and Iran.
Online publication The Intercept, which lists Snowden confidant Glenn Greenwald among its associates, ran a similar report, with what it said were hacked pictures of armed Israeli drones taken from cameras aboard the aircraft.
Israel insists that it ceased such missions since it ran US Navy analyst Jonathan Pollard as an agent in the 1980s.

US Asks NATO for AWACS Planes in Syria War against ISIS
NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg says the United States has asked the military alliance to assist the US with AWACS surveillance aircraft in the Syria war.
The request is set to raise hackles in Russia which is already views NATO's eastward expansion with much indignation and is currently involved in a military campaign against militants in Syria.
The plan further raises the ante in brewing tensions in the region at a time of Syrian military advances against Takfiri militants as the Russian air campaign in the Arab country is proving largely successful.
“We are now looking into that request” to use NATO Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) against Daesh targets in Syria and Iraq, NATO Secretary-General Stoltenberg told reporters on Thursday.
The “different ways” to provide the support were under consideration, but no decision had been made yet, Stoltenberg added.
NATO is not involved in the Syria war, but a number of alliance members such as the US, France and the UK have been carrying out airstrikes against what they call terrorist targets in Iraq and Syria since 2014.

Why does the W. axis need surveillance? The Russians are quite open about where they are. Also overflying Syria without the Syrian government's permission is illegal and can be considered intimidation.

Saudi war crimes evidence could be fabricated by Houthis – UK minister

VT By GPD on January 29, 2016
Of course it is Britain that has, over the years, been caught fabricating evidence many times...not this time, of course, because Britain has NO evidence supporting their claim...just another wild conspiracy theory
Evidence from a UN report that suggests the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen has targeted innocent civilians may have been falsified by Houthi rebels, a British government minister has alleged.
Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood caused astonishment when he made the claim in the House of Commons on Thursday.
The UN report, which provoked outrage after it was leaked earlier this week, found that 119 Saudi-led military missions in Yemen were linked to violations of international law. Its findings stoked fears that British-made arms sold to the Saudis may have been deployed to commit war crimes.
‘Revoke all licenses’
Britain’s arms sales to Saudi Arabia totaled £2.95 billion (US$4.23 billion) for the first nine months of 2015, and roughly £7 billion since Prime Minister David Cameron took office in 2010.
Amid mounting concerns that UK-made weapons have been used to bomb schools, hospitals, markets and other civilian targets in Yemen, Cameron has been urged to suspend all arms sales to the Gulf state. However, the government has failed to do so, and has left UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia unfettered.
Andrew Smith of Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) said the government must revoke all existing licenses for arms to Saudi Arabia.
“If the government takes the UN and international law seriously then it must revoke all licenses for arms to Saudi and call an urgent investigation into the abuses that have taken place,” he told RT.
“Elwood’s position seems to be that we should just take Saudi Arabia’s word for it – this is despite the fact it is one of the most violent and repressive regimes in the world. There needs to be an investigation that considers all of the evidence available.”
Addressing MPs in the House of Commons, Ellwood said he took the UN report’s allegations seriously. However, the Tory minister noted that its authors had not personally made their way to Yemen. He argued that the evidence of potential attacks on civilians was predominantly based on “hearsay” and satellite pictures. He also suggested that some of the devastation referenced in the report could have been caused by Houthi rebels, who are fighting the Yemeni government.
“We are aware that the Houthis, who are very media-savvy in such a situation, are using their own artillery pieces deliberately, targeting individual areas where the people are not loyal to them, to give the impression that there have been air attacks,” he said.
“That is not to exonerate Saudi Arabia from any of the mistakes it might have made, but it is why it is so important to have a thorough process to investigate absolutely every single incident.”

Are they co-conspirators, as guilty of breaking the law, does the signing of the official secrets act have force? Do such secrecy agreements create a breach of law, each particular member of the armed forces is in fact conspiring with the regime against the public and against the government they are attacking?

A Complete Disconnect

By Preston James, Ph.D on January 28, 2016
The American people have become completely disconnected from their own government which is supposed to be "Of the People By the People". The visible government comprised of Congress, the Administration and the Judiciary are merely ceremonial and are used as tools to keep the masses in line by those who give them orders and set policy. The real government that runs everything from behind closed doors in abject secrecy is the Secret Shadow Government (SSG).
by Preston James
[Note: This article builds on past articles on this subject. For those who haven’t read those, reading this article is likely a waste of time and it will be difficult to fit this information into their heads.
This is a long article and is written as a two-tiered piece. Those short of time can read the bold print and pass over the rest, and then finish with the conclusion. Many thanks to my sources, some still living but most passed. None of the novel information included is associated with Veterans Today in any way. I do not enjoy writing this type of article for a number of reasons not appropriate to be discussed here. But I do feel an obligation to get this information out.]
When you stop and ask what the average American man or woman what they think about their government, the typical answer you get is that it is not responsive to their needs.
And many will also state further that they believe that instead of serving the needs of the common man the government appears to be more concerned with serving its own needs, that is the needs of the elected politicians themselves and wealthy, powerful, elite special interests they represent.
You will also often hear resentment expressed about the USG continuing to embark on expensive foreign wars and its doling out billions of dollars to the leaders of foreign nations as foreign aid while not adequately providing for the American taxpayers who provide the funds used in the first place.
Politicians are elected by social contract, a sacred trust that is best summarized as this: “If we entrust you with power to rule over us and lead us, we expect you to represent our interests and obey your Oath of Office to uphold the US Constitution. You need to make laws which represent our interests as We The People and not on the behalf of special interest groups or the wealthy elites.”
Right now if you ask, most middle-aged Americans will respond that their government is failing them at all levels and has not fulfilled this basic social contract they have been entrusted with when they are elected and allowed to assume political office.
And you will frequently be told that there seems to be no more Rule of Law in America, especially for the wealthy, powerful elites. But that strict enforcement of thousands of laws, even very specific hair splitting ones enforced only to restrict and keep the common man down and take away his basic freedoms which are supposed to be guaranteed by the US Constitution.
Many will tell you that there appears to be no way for the common man to adequately address grievances to the government at any level, nor any reason to believe that government officials even give a damn about the common man at all.

Is Zika Virus the Next Tool For Forced Sterilization, Vaccination and Depopulation?

Activist Post January 29, 2016 By Bernie Suarez
There is a new pathogen getting lots of attention from the mass media and the rest of the control system, and those awakened to the globalist plans may want to pay very close attention. It isn’t quite the Ebola-style scare, but it brings with it a much more focused and sinister agenda, and it’s already underway in 2016. It’s called the Zika virus scare.
In perfect timing with the current attempted rise of the new world order we’ve been witnessing over the past several months, the Zika virus scare agenda is focused on fulfilling the global elite’s depopulation agenda as we’ll see in a minute. But first let’s consider some of the history of the depopulation agenda itself.

"Going Underground" British Bombs on Yemen, The 21st Century: Era of Fraud and Breaking Views

RT Shows Jan 27, 2016
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on British backed airstrikes in Yemen, the American economy and the headlines of the week. Britain's parliament voted for war in Syria but where's the vote on our war in Yemen? The leader of the SNP in Westminster Angus Robertson, demands one, on this show. And will UK GDP figures be as rigged as today's news from the Federal Reserve? Paul Craig Roberts, a former assistant secretary to the U.S. Treasury tells us we are living in an era of fraud. Plus Afshin is joined once again by former news editor of the News of the World and Managing Director of ClearVista Media, Neville Thurlbeck, for a look at the best of the worst headlines from ISIS terror videos directed at the UK to further betrayal of Britain’s steel industry.

Illegal Saudi arms deals, Cameron’s bunch of migrants & Does the law protect child abusers? (E300)
RT Shows 30 Jan, 2016
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the illegal bombing of civilians in Yemen, institutional abuse at G4S & David Cameron attacking Jeremy Corbyn about his disgraceful predecessors. Amnesty International UK’s arms programme director Oliver Sprague asks whether Saudi Arabia is blackmailing the British government. And why is it not mandatory in the UK for people to report child abuse? Tom Perry, founder of Mandate Now, criticizes government cuts that have led to victims of abuse not having access to proper therapy. Plus Afshin discusses this week’s PMQs & the PM's outburst against refugees.
"Our Child Protection Policy was drawn up with the help of the NSPCC, the Lucy Faithful Organisation and Local Safeguarding Children Boards. We continue to work with these organisations where appropriate, when amending or updating the policy. Last year, an independent review of our safeguarding processes by Good Corporation tested and examined our child protection policies against a total of 49 criteria. We regularly review our policies and of course will learn any lessons from the DJS Review to ensure that they are as robust as they can be."

Most Wanted ISIS Terrorist Eliminated as Terrorists Fear Secret Sniper

One of the world’s most wanted ISIS terrorists has reportedly been wiped out as the evil group fears a secret sniper is picking off the leadership one by one.
Neil Prakash, who fled to Syria in 2013, is believed to have been killed after secretive ISIS messages revealed he had been wiped out in the country.
The Australian quickly rose through the ranks of the twisted terror cell and became a top recruiter for the group.
Prakash, who is also known as Abu Khaled al-Cambodi, was also connected to a number of terror threats including an alleged Anzac day terror plot targeting Melbourne.

Infowars Nightly News - Is Hillary Secretly Already Our Next President

The Alex Jones Channel Jan 26, 2016
A new bill making its way through Congress contains “dangerous and unprecedented” language that could be considered a “declaration of international martial law,” a US senator warned last Thursday.
Now that the Bill of Rights have been largely destroyed by our Corporatized Government. President Obama has decided to go for the meat of the American Constitution. The War Powers of the Constitution Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war,: The Congress shall have Power... To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water.
So while the East Coast was buried under record snowfall. Obama’s faux Republican minions Lindsay Graham and Mitch McConnell scuttled another dangerous fast tracked bill into the halls of the most hated congress in U.S. History. The Foreign Relations Committee chair, Senator Bob Corker was bypassed by McConnell’s fast track.
Following World War 2 the United State’s leadership has continually sought to foment and drive the Industrial Military complex machine into a unending unconstitutional state of global war. We have finally reached the precipice of the total annihilation of the balance of powers that act as the foundation of our Republic. President Obama is desperately attempting to disarm the public and re engineer the United States into a lawless military state overseen by corrupt politicians on par with the horror south of our border.
Bill Clinton's former mistress fears for her life as she's set to release a tell-all book.
Plus, incredibly influential CEO says Hillary will win, it's already been decided.
