From the article:
“Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina), who heads the House Select Committee on Benghazi, issued a subpoena for the private server that hosted Clinton’s emails as the congressional panel investigates the 2012 attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
On Friday, he announced that Clinton had failed to respond to the subpoena and had wiped her server clean.”
– State Dept. reveals Hillary Clinton emailed from two devices while secretary of state (RT, March 31, 2015):
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used both her Blackberry and an iPad to email with State Department employees from her private account and server, despite previously saying she only used one device. Now the server has been wiped clean.
New emails released by the State Department show that when Clinton was secretary of state, she used her Apple iPad to communicate with employees, and that, on at least one occasion, accidentally mingled business and personal emails.

– Pepe Escobar in eastern Ukraine: Howling in Donetsk (Asia Times, March 30, 2015):
Asia Times’ roving correspondent Pepe Escobar just returned from a reporting trip to the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the pro-Russian enclave in the Donetsk Oblast province of eastern Ukraine. The area’s been the scene of heavy fighting between pro-Russian rebels and the Ukrainian military. Escobar traveled to Donetsk at the invitation of Europa Objektiv, a German-based non-governmental media project. He traveled at his own expense.
I’ve just been to the struggling Donetsk People’s Republic. Now I’m back in the splendid arrogance and insolence of NATOstan.
Quite a few people – in Donbass, in Moscow, and now in Europe – have asked me what struck me most about this visit.
I could start by paraphrasing Allen Ginsberg in Howl – “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness.”
But these were the Cold War mid-1950s. Now we’re in early 21st century Cold War 2.0 .

– Gold In Fed Vault Drops Under 6,000 Tons For The First Time, After 10th Consecutive Month Of Redemptions (ZeroHedge, March 31, 2015):
Two months ago, when looking at the most recent physical gold withdrawal numbers reported by the Fed, we observed something peculiar: between the publicly reported surprise redemption by the Netherlands (122 tons) and the just as surprise redemption by the Bundesbank (85 tons), at least 207 tons of gold should have vacated the NY Fed’s gold vault. Instead, the Fed reported that in all of 2014 “only” 177 tons of gold were shipped out of the massive gold vault located 90 feet below 33 Liberty Street. Somehow the delta between what we “shipped” and what was “received” in the past year was a whopping 30 tons, or about 15% of the total – a gap that is big enough to make even China’s outright fraudulent trade numbers seems sterling by comparison.
This prompted us to ask:
Testing, testing …

– ‘Emergency alert’ sparks panic among TV viewers across US (RT, March 30, 2015):
The residents of about a dozen US states received a scare when an ominous message rolled across their TV screens announcing an ‘emergency alert’ with the names of their states – without any explanation or further information.
A test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) began shortly before noon on Monday and was seen by millions of television viewers in Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington, DC, Infowars reported.
EAS is a special department run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Weather Service (NOAA/NWS).
The alert interrupted regularly scheduled television programs for 10 minutes with a listing of affected states and an announcement that the alert would remain in effect until midnight.

– More Hard Proof Germanwings Crash is a Hoax (NODISINFO, March 30, 2015):
With revelations from our posters
Regarding Germanwings, there can be no other possibility other than the fact that this was a fake, that is a staged crash. It cannot be real. There were purportedly 150 passengers on-board. Where are they, and/or where are their body parts? It would be a macabre scene. Why is no one reacting to it?
It was stated, here, that by no means does the crash scene represent an entire plane. It was also stated that there was no inferno, no blackening, no char: no spotty fires and/or billowing smoke. Such a jet would have exploded on impact. Where is the expected fire-related damage? Where was the necessary smolder? Is there only this, and that’s it?
Just whitish-appearing smoke, no fire, from a pyrotechnic artificially placed charge? Where is the burning jet fuel, with its black, acrid smoke?
The question was raised, “Where are the virtually indestructible titanium-based engines? This was an Airbus 320. The engines used on such planes are considerable:

“Another article on Greece from Bloomberg…..does not address many of the points the NY times did……..but at least they are mentioning it…”
– Greece’s Debt Crisis Explained (Bloomberg, March 25, 2015):
Time is running out for Greece. By early April, the Greek government will have a bond payment come due, and there will be no way for the government to make the payment unless it gets a fresh tranche of cash from its creditors, who are in large part euro zone governments.
H/t reader M.G.:
“Here is a story that ought to be worrying every state of the EU and the US economy……..Greece.
Greek officials are meeting with Russian and Chinese leaders…..Greek leaders already assuring China they have a place in the largest Greek shipping port. Russia and China are financial and political allies, and together, they could easily step in and help Greece if they leave the Euro…..
If Greece leaves the Euro, it will start a financial unraveling that will spread throughout the Euro Zone and the US……”
– Greece Looks to Russia as Deal With Europe Stumbles (New York Times, March 30, 2015):
THENS — With the prospect of a default looming in Greece, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is preparing to meet next week with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia as a European deal to give more aid to Athens falters.
The timing has raised questions of whether the visit is an ordinary component of the new Greek government’s multipronged foreign policy, or a pivot toward Russia for financial aid in the event that Greece’s talks with European officials collapse.
