U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says that his Department will not prosecute journalist Glenn Greenwald, an American who lives in Brazil, if he travels to the U.S..
Sari Horwitz writes in The Washington Post:
Holder indicated that the Justice Department is not planning to prosecute former Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, one of the journalists who received documents from Snowden and has written a series of articles based on the leaked material. Greenwald, an American citizen who lives in Brazil, has said he is reluctant to come to the United States because he fears detention and possible prosecution.
“Unless information that has not come to my attention is presented to me, what I have indicated in my testimony before Congress is that any journalist who’s engaged in true journalistic activities is not going to be prosecuted by this Justice Department,” Holder said.
“I certainly don’t agree with what Greenwald has done,” Holder said. “In some ways, he blurs the line between advocate and journalist. But on the basis of what I know now, I’m not sure there is a basis for prosecution of Greenwald.”

Russia Today introduction: Although Israel and Saudi Arabia officially have no diplomatic relations - they're rumoured to be preparing a joint bombing campaign against Iran. The Sunday Times suggests an attack may take place if a new round of international talks fails to produce a deal rolling back Tehran's nuclear power programme. Israel considers Iran its enemy-number-one, and has long accused the country of working on an atomic bomb, a charge that Iran denies.

Russia Today introduction: Talks recommenced on the transatlantic trade deal between the EU and US this week - which promises to be worth 150 billion dollars. But who will benefit, and will corporations run the world? Katie Pilbeam asks economist Rodney Shakespeare. Plus, the ECB is contemplating negative interest rates as a last ditch effort bid to boost Eurozone's struggling economies. And the most expensive diamond and painting were sold at auction this week -- but are they really the most valuable assets or is the reality of inflation ever more visible. Katie's side-kick Sean Thomas talks Bitcoin and show's us his dance moves!

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and Director of Intelligence James Clapper say that whistle blower Edward Snowden is a traitor, ignoring their own violations of the U.S. Constitution. Clapper even justifies without blushing, on record, eavesdropping on the leaders of our close allies.
Glenn Greenwald rebuts their accusations against Snowden and says the criminality lies with them.

Characterizes Obama as "stupid"
During an appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Chicago radio host Eric ‘Mancow’ Muller revealed that actor Harry Lennix told him he was hired to train Obama on how to look presidential by mimicking Harry’s demeanor and body language. They spent years together.
Mancow hopes Harry doesn't get contacted by the IRS because of the revelation. HPI wonders if he'll be able to continue working in Hollywood. Hhmmm, is a repudiation and apology on its way?

Shadow and Act
July 11, 2013
First some background...
Several months ago or so, I did an interview for another site with actor Harry Lennix, who all of you know, and was seen this summer in Warner Bros' huge Superman reboot, Man of Steel. But the interview wasn't about that; it was instead about Harry's upcoming indie projects, like the fascinating Mr. Sophistication, directed by Danny Green, in which he plays a Richard Pryor-like self-destructive comedian attempting a comeback, and his all-black version of Shakespeare's Henry IV, called H4, which has just finished post-production. And both of those are on top of 6 other pictures he's completed that are scheduled to be released next year.
Knowing Harry personally for many years, we really had more of a conversation than an interview; he is, as always, up front, totally honest and says exactly what he thinks. And that is so refreshing, considering how most people in the business are reluctant to speak out on anything, or be opinionated.

FoxNews host Chris Wallace (yes, Jewish) and James Capretta of the Ethics & Policy Center repeatedly get interrupted by the annoyingly pugnacious Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., a Jew whose brother is Rahm Emanuel, the man who brought Obama to meet with the AIPAC inner sanctum while Obama was campaigning for his first term.
At AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an Israel tax-exempt lobby group) Obama publicly pledged his loyalty to Israel if elected President. But Israel and the AIPAC movers and shakers likely already knew that. America's low information Christians, who enjoy believing that today's Jews and Israel are biblical prophecy fulfilled, were thrilled to hear that Obama was properly deferential to Israel, their idea of the promised land.
Rahm, famous for his combative disposition and blue language (at least he kept it off the airwaves), soon became Obama's first appointee, his Chief of Staff. Rahm is now the mayor of Chicago.
A second brother is Ari Emanuel, a "Hollywood mogul," also known for his hard-hitting ways.
So there you have it, the three brothers, very likely dual citizens of Israel and the U.S., who are at the very top echelons of political influence: Rahm in national and city politics; Ezekiel in medical politics; and Ari in Hollywood and television. Sheer brilliance? Or something else?
The greatest teacher the world has known, also a Jew, said, "No man can serve two masters [Israel and the U.S.]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other." (Matthew 6:24)
Ezekiel, who probably had considerable input into ObamaCare, with a substantial financial and power reward in it for him, defends the indefensible with a liberal helping of Jewish chutzpah, which we get to watch in action.

Russia Today introduction: If you're looking for somewhere to invest, and aren't too bothered about the moral implications - private jails could be an option. The number of inmates being held in them has swelled. And that's giving private shareholders bumper profits. But as RT's Marina Portnaya explains - there's a huge conflict of interests.
