District Attorney Says Encrypted Phones May Make You a Terrorist Because They “Cannot Be Accessed by Law Enforcement”

As we reported last week, even the Third Amendment can now be violated so that law enforcement officials can forcibly occupy your home to gain a tactical advantage against criminal or terror suspects.

This is America in 2015 so it’s no surprise that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. wants total access to your personal effects. If it were up to Vance, you as an individual would have no right to secure your personal phone or computer data. As far as the DA is concerned, if you are encrypting your passwords, private messages, and personal notes you are denying nosy big government operatives the intrusive access they so desperately need to control you.

This country’s elites have said “good bye and good rubbish” to the protections which used to be extended to ordinary working people under the Bill of Rights and Constitution, and they are trying desperately to make this lack of on-line liberty stick.

But it cannot, and it won’t, because people not only want, but also deserve, their privacy on line. Wanting to keep private communication private should not be construed as alleged “terroristic behaviour”.

The Federal Government cannot decrypt everything, and those 6 NSA challenges Mike has done have gone completely unanswered, although we know that several people (most likely from one of the “Alphabet Soup” agencies) have tried, and failed miserably.

 

Saudi Arabia Orders Its National Guard To Enter Yemen War

Over the better part of the past month, the only entities actively involved in the proxy war in Yemen against the local Houthi rebel force have been air force units, mostly under Saudi command as part of Operation “Decisive Storm.” Which probably explains why there has been little if any progress to note in pushing back said rebellion which, armed heavily thanks to the US government, has successfully managed to push the current president into an indefinite exile.

That changed hours ago, when Saudi Arabia’s King Salman ordered the Saudi Arabian National Guard, widely regarded as the kingdom’s best equipped military ground force, to take part in Riyadh’s campaign against Iran-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen.

As Reuters notes, “military operations in the campaign have so far been carried out by the Royal Saudi Air Force and the Royal Saudi Land Forces, which answer to the Defense Ministry. The national guard is a separate military structure run by its own ministry.”

One has to wonder just how soon it will be American military boots on the ground in Yemen; were I a betting person, I wouldn’t bet against…soon.

 

Pakistan faces dilemma as Saudi bills come due

When the Saudi appeal first came, it seemed that the dispatch of Pakistani soldiers to the Gulf was imminent: “Any threat to the territorial integrity of Saudi Arabia will be met with a firm response,” read a communique from Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

But soon thereafter, Pakistan’s foreign ministry issued a denial that any of the country’s military was engaged in Yemen, though the Pakistani flag continued to fly alongside that of Arab nations at the Saudi-based headquarters of Yemen operations.

This “now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t” game ended only when Pakistan’s Parliament voted against the dispatch of troops. Still, the episode shed light on the murky world of Pakistani-Saudi relations, a link which looks destined to shape the security map of the Middle East for years to come.

Israeli Fighter Jets Join Saudi Arabia in War on Yemen

Israel’s fighter jets have taken part in the Thursday Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen, sources in Sanaa disclosed on Friday.

“This is for the first time that the Zionists are conducting a joint operation in coalition with Arabs,” Secretary General of Yemen’s Al-Haq Political Party Hassan Zayd wrote on his facebook page.

He noted that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had issued direct orders for the Israeli air force to send fighter jets to the Saudi-led air raid on Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes against Yemen and killed, at least, 25 civilians early Thursday, one day after the US-backed Yemeni president fled the country.

 

Blood on their Hands: Libya’s Boat Refugees and “Humanitarian” Imperialism

Since the beginning of the year, at least 1,700 people attempting to immigrate to Europe have died in transit, 50 times the number for the same period last year. According to the IOM, the number of people dying in the attempt to reach the shores of Europe rose by more than 500 percent between 2011 and 2014.

Of course, 2011 was the year that the US and its NATO allies, principally France and Britain, launched their war for regime change in Libya, under the fabricated pretext that they were intervening to prevent a massacre by the government of Muammar Gaddafi in the eastern city of Benghazi.

This “humanitarian” mission initiated a six-month US-NATO bombing campaign that killed at least 10 times the number who died in the scattered fighting between government troops and armed rebels that had preceded it. This imperialist intervention, which utilized Islamist militias with ties to Al Qaeda as its proxy ground forces, left Libya descending rapidly into chaos and destruction.

The future of Libya should, by rights, belong to the Libyan people; but unending and merciless Western intervention is making this almost impossible.

 

DOJ Admits FBI Forensic Examiners Gave False Testimony for Decades

In response to a Washington Post investigation, the Department of Justice and FBI have formally admitted that the majority of FBI forensic hair analysts provided flawed testimony and false evidence against criminal defendants for nearly three decades. With the advent of DNA testing, the FBI has discovered that their own forensic examiners gave erroneous testimony in more than 95% of cases that have been reviewed. Due to the fact that FBI analysts provided scientifically invalid testimony for decades, numerous innocent convicts have been exonerated and released from prison.

Except for the ones who were executed, and the FBI feels really bad about them!

Exclusive: Wary of natural disaster, NY Fed bulks up in Chicago

The New York branch of the U.S. Federal Reserve, wary that a natural disaster or other eventuality could shut down its market operations as it approaches an interest rate hike, has added staff and bulked up its satellite office in Chicago.

Some market technicians have transferred from New York and others were hired at the office housed in the Chicago Fed, according to several people familiar with the build-out that began about two years ago, after Hurricane Sandy struck Manhattan.

Officials believe the Chicago staffers can now handle all of the market operations that are done daily out of the New York Fed, which is the U.S. central bank’s main conduit to Wall Street.

I don’t think it is a natural disaster they are worried about so much as an angry mob with torches and pitchforks descending on Wall Street … like the people of Illinois with torches and pitchforks don’t know the FED is there as well!

Human rights advocates, military see violent video games as teaching tool

As reported in 2013 at killscreendaily.com:

As it turns out, Ender’s Game has been extremely influential in the way the military views videogames as a training tool for soldiers. According to Corey Mead: “The whole idea of what Ender’s Game is—young people fighting a war—is what influenced [the military]. And they totally did it.” In his new book War Play: Video Games and the Future of Armed Conflict, Mead explores the U.S. military’s use of videogames as a tool for recruitment, training, and treatment. This recent interest in videogames reflects a shift in what it wants from its soldiers. “For the first time in its history‚” Mead writes, “the military wants to teach even junior personnel not just what to think but how to think.” This change has taken place primarily because of the U.S.’s involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, where a soldier isn’t just fighting but is tasked with a number of different jobs, requiring different skills, tactics, and cultural understanding. The military’s expanding interest in videogames is well illustrated by America’s Army, the first military-developed game. It was a free-to-play first-person shooter that simulated a more realistic approach to warfare, even forcing players to sit through boot camp before allowing them to engage in combat online. The game was originally developed in 2002 for $7.5 million—a third of a percent of the army’s marketing budget —and is one of the military’s most successful recruiting pushes ever.

IF you are a mom or dad out there with a kid who loves video games….just please be aware of WHAT they are playing, OK?!?

 

Tepco to abandon the second robot in Reactor 1 again / Camera went out of order due to high level of radiation

On 4/20/2015, Tepco announced they are going to leave the second robot in Reactor 1 as well.

From 4/18 to 4/19/2015, the second robot investigated the first robot that stopped moving inside PCV (Primary Containment Vessel), and they concluded it had one of the wheels stuck between the gratings though they did not release sufficient visual reports.

They need to transform the second robot to let it out of PCV, but one of the cameras was found out of order to control the transformation.

The cause is assumed to be the excessive level of radiation.

As a result, Tepco has decided to abandon the second robot and two of the robots did not bring more than the data they were supposed to send from PCV.

46 Civilians Killed as Saudi Warplanes Attack Yemen Capital

At least 46 people are dead tonight and several hundred others wounded after Saudi warplanes launched attacks on the outskirts of a missile depot in the Yemeni capital city of Sanaa.

No military casualties were reported in the strikes, which set off a string of explosions around residential neighborhoods in Sanaa. Many of the casualties were from explosions blowing out windows in people’s homes.

Saudi military spokesman Brig. Gen. Ahmed Asseri went on to say that today’s strikes were part of a “new phase” of war against the Houthis, one which he insisted would include “protection of civilians.” So far, the phase seems not to be off to a great start.

I have two words for Saudi military spokesman Brig. Gen. Ahmed Asseri, and those are: WAR CRIMES!!!

And, sir, would someone from the Saudi military please inform me about how one wins what is essentially a ground war from the air?!?

The short answer is, you can’t!

The indiscriminate killing of civilians here appears to be quite deliberate, from the Saudi military perspective, and with heavy US military enabling.

The only ways here to restore peace and sanity to Yemen is a negotiated settlement,coupled with some VERY brave Sunni and Shiite clerics having a conversation about cooperating with each other, and becoming examples of what it means to treat the other with tolerance and compassion.

Gas chambers don’t exist I guess in Germany or here in the U.S. I thought it was part of the death penalty and things.”

In our time, this means choosing to confront bigotry and hatred in all of its forms, especially anti-Semitism. It means condemning any attempts to deny the occurrence of the Holocaust. In 2012 Obama said “when efforts are made to equate Zionism to racism, we reject them…”

 

Oxfam Condemns Coalition Airstrike on Humanitarian Aid Warehouse in Yemen

Grace Ommer, Oxfam’s country director in Yemen, called on the warring sides of Yemen’s conflict to establish peace and allow for humanitarian access.

Oxfam strongly condemned Monday the bombing of one of its warehouses in Saada Governorate in the north of Yemen.

“This is an absolute outrage particularly when one considers that we have shared detailed information with the Coalition on the locations of our offices and storage facilities,” Grace Ommer, Oxfam’s country director in Yemen, was quoted as saying by the organization on its website.

I am having a palm to forehead moment, at almost terminal velocity, upon reading this.

Is this woman pathologically incapable of understanding that when Oxfam gives the coalition the GPS locations of food storage places within Yemen, these places will be bombed out of existence?!?

Misery is just what the US and Saudi forces want to inflict on the people of Yemen, who had the utter audacity to throw the US-sponsored puppet, Al-Madi, out on his keister.

There have been reports of schools and hospitals being shelled. As reported in the latimes.com 5 days ago:

Pentagon officials, who pride themselves on the care they take to avoid civilian casualties, have watched with growing alarm as Saudi airstrikes have hit what the U.N. this week called “dozens of public buildings,” including hospitals, schools, residential areas and mosques. The U.N. said at least 364 civilians have been killed in the campaign. lRelated Al Qaeda seizes Yemen airport, military base; U.N. envoy resigns MIDDLE EAST Al Qaeda seizes Yemen airport, military base; U.N. envoy resigns SEE ALL RELATED 8 Although U.S. personnel don’t pick the bombing targets, Americans are working beside Saudi military officials to check the accuracy of target lists in a joint operations center in Riyadh, defense officials said. The Pentagon has expedited delivery of GPS-guided “smart” bomb kits to the Saudi air force to replenish supplies.

And IF, as the article asserts, “Americans are working beside Saudi military officials to check the accuracy of target lists in a joint operations center in Riyadh”, only one of two things is possible here: either these civilian targets are being deliberately hit to create as much human carnage and misery possible, or the Saudis, using US gps “smart bombs” cannot shoot straight!!

EU creating “mass graves” in Mediterannean

European countries are the ones to blame for the latest Mediterranean migrants tragedy in which more than 700 people died on Sunday, according to global medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

The head of MSF in Italy, Loris De Filippi, said on Monday that Europe is not willing to address the “Mediterranean humanitarian tragedy.”

“A mass grave is being created in the Mediterranean Sea and European policies are responsible,” said De Filippi, accusing EU countries of closing their borders which forces people seeking protection to risk their lives and die at sea.

De Filippi urged EU countries to urgently launch large-scale search-and-rescue activities in order to avoid more deaths at sea.

Pennsylvania police officer charged with murdering suspect

A Pennsylvania police officer waived a preliminary hearing Monday on charges that she murdered a man who had run away from a traffic stop by shooting him twice in the back as he lay face-down in the snow.

Officer Lisa Mearkle, 36, appeared before a district judge on Monday and waived her right to a hearing to determine whether there was enough evidence to justify a trial. She is free on $250,000 bail with electronic monitoring.

The victim, David Kassick, 59, of Hummelstown, died shortly after being shot on Feb. 2. Kassick, who like Mearkle was white, was unarmed and had run away from a traffic stop.

The case is the latest in a string of controversial police shootings captured on video. Earlier this month, a South Carolina policeman was charged with murder for fatally shooting an unarmed man in the back as he ran away.

Courtroom erupts after judge finds Chicago cop not guilty in Rekia Boyd fatal shooting trial

A judge on Monday found Chicago police officer Dante Servin not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, saying there was no evidence he acted recklessly when he killed Rekia Boyd, 22, in an off-duty shooting in 2012.

After a four-day bench trial, which is heard before a judge without a jury, Cook County Associate Judge Dennis Porter said in a written finding that Servin’s actions were intentional and so did not fit the charges brought by the state’s attorney.

Boyd’s family erupted in shouts and tears after the ruling.

“They said a lot of charges didn’t fit,” said Boyd’s brother, Martinez Sutton, outside the courthouse, in tears. “I was promised that they were going to take this officer down.”

A few protesters held a large sign reading “STOP murder by police” and photographs of some 20 black people who have been killed by police across the country, including Boyd.

The killings of MANY unarmed people in the Police State of Amerika has grown exponentially, and partially because police across the country are getting their training from former, or current, members of Israel’s IDF, which means that now, US citizens are treated with the same deadly contempt as are the Palestinians.

And the only thing the police officer has to say at the trial, to get him or her legally off the hook, is that they “believed their lives to be in danger.”

That’s it,folks.

 

Pumps at Fukushima plant halted, toxic water leaking into ocean – TEPCO

Brazil, Malaysia cancel GM mosquito trials citing risks and ineffectiveness

Field trials in Bentong, a town in the state of Pahang, Malaysia, were conducted to determine if GM mosquitoes could help keep dengue at bay, with a final determination that such an attempt does not yield any benefits. In fact, the risks were found to be so great that the plan was halted altogether; health officials expressed strong disinterest in pursuing the GM mosquito project after they found that these trials would ultimately be ineffective.(1)

Releasing male GM Aedes aegypti mosquitoes into the wild with the hopes that they would mate and produce offspring that would die before adulthood — and therefore prevent the spread of dengue — were found to carry risks on health, financial and environmental levels.

Heads Up: Gov’t plans to Tax our Savings Accounts

A new political scheme to tax bank accounts, according to the Australian Financial Review, might be locked in place in Australian banks as soon as January 1, 2016. [1-4] This could quickly be copied by other tax-hungry welfare states, including ours.

This bank deposit tax will likely begin at a low percentage, to create a legal precedent; but it is expected to grow rapidly, as the income tax did in the United States.

Like many modern taxes, this planned tax on bank accounts is being framed as a tax on the banks, not on individual customers. Its cost, however, will be passed on to depositors in the form of higher fees or lower interest paid on their accounts.

This tax on bank deposits is projected from its start to raise around $500 million each year, purportedly for a “Financial Stabilization Fund” to help protect banks from collapse in future financial crises.

Unsound Banking: Why Most of the World’s Banks Are Headed for Collapse

You’re likely thinking that a discussion of “sound banking” will be a bit boring. Well, banking should be boring. And we’re sure officials at central banks all over the world today—many of whom have trouble sleeping—wish it were.

This brief article will explain why the world’s banking system is unsound, and what differentiates a sound from an unsound bank. I suspect not one person in 1,000 actually understands the difference. As a result, the world’s economy is now based upon unsound banks dealing in unsound currencies. Both have degenerated considerably from their origins…

 

BILL BEFORE CONGRESS WOULD AUTHORIZE SECRECY AND SURVEILLANCE, NOT “CYBER SECURITY”

A provision in the falsely-named “cyber security” bill currently being debated in congress would—in addition to enabling more warrantless government spying—create a gaping hole in the Freedom of Information Act, potentially allowing federal agencies to keep secret any information they don’t want made public. The new exemption to FOIA would cover all “information shared with or provided to the Federal Government” through the so-called “cyber security” information sharing program, Politico reports.

Senators Chuck Grassley and Pat Leahy have raised concerns about the provision. Politico quotes Grassley from a 2012 hearing on a similar proposal:

It is painfully ironic that President Obama, a former lecturer on Constitutional law, appears, in his behaviour, to loathe and and despise the Constitution and Bill of Rights with a staggering intensity.

European Banks Are Paid To Borrow For First Time Ever As Euribor Goes Negative

Mario Draghi said this week that the transmission channels for European Q€ were opening up and crowed how well his cunning plan was working (by well we assume he means stocks are up). Today we get the ultimate test of that ‘transmission’ as 3-Month EURIBOR fell below 0.00% for the first time ever (likely wreaking havoc on European derivative pricing models). In English that means banks are being paid to borrow from one another in the interbank money-markets (which sounds a lot like a ‘glut’ of excess cash) seemingly confirming ICMA’s de Vidts fears: “We are scared about the [repo] market freezing,” as the ECB is “driving without headlights in the dark.” Of course this is yet another disturbing distortion on the heels of homeowners being paid to take out mortgages…

5 Baffling Dick Moves That Won Actual Lawsuits

Dr. Richard O. Phillips was slapped with a paternity lawsuit by Dr. Sharon Irons, with whom he’d once had a quick and lurid affair. A paternity test revealed that Phillips was the father of Irons’ child. And yet Phillips was still somewhat skeptical of Irons’s claim … because the only sex they had was of the oral variety.

No, Dr. Phillips didn’t have sperm with a serious “can-do” attitude — after performing oral sex on him, Irons squirreled away the man’s ejaculate and later used it to impregnate herself. And since Phillips was undeniably the father, the court ruled that he was on the hook for $800 a month in child support, making for possibly the first case of a man paying for a blowjob on installments.

STUNNED GREEKS REACT TO INITIAL CAPITAL CONTROLS AND THE “DECREE TO CONFISCATE RESERVES”, AND THEY ARE NOT HAPPY

Earlier today, following weeks of speculation, Greece finally launched the first shot across the bow of capital controls, when it decreed that due to an “extremely urgent and unforeseen need” (ironically the need was quite foreseen since about 2010, but that is a different story), it would be “obliged” to transfer – as in confiscate – “idle cash reserves”located across the country’s local governments (i.e., various cities and municipalities) to the Greek central bank.

Bloomberg reports, that “as Greece struggles to find cash to stay afloat, local authorities say they oppose a government decision to use their reserves for short-term financing.”

So now, to fulfill their obligations to the IMF, Greeks are going to be robbed of the money they have earned?!?

IF I were a Greek citizen, with my account wiped out to pay the country’s IMF obligations, I would be very, very, very angry right now.

Bing ads link to adware-infested Internet Explorer as sponsored links go under the microscope

Expert Reviews has discovered that Microsoft’s Bing search engine is displaying prominent links to download sites, offering bloatware-stuffed versions of free software, including its own Internet Explorer.

These download sites are getting into search pages by buying advertising based on the relevant keyword. As Bing displays advertising at the top of the page, these download sites appear higher up than the product’s official page, which could fool users into going to the wrong site.

Rita Katz Produced Yet Another Fake ‘ISIS™’ Execution Video

Rita Katz is pumping ’em out like Steven Seagal these days and the end result is just as sad.

There’s another fake execution video from the Katz Production Company known as SITE and this one clearly proves dear to her blackened racist heart, I’m sure.

ISIS released a video on Tuesday that it claims shows the execution of East Jerusalem Palestinian Muhammad Musallam, 19, who was taken hostage as an alleged Israeli spy three months ago in Syria, NBC News reports. Haaretz

The “victim” in this production… is an Israeli. Not only is he an Israeli, but he is allegedly a Mossad agent. Everyone at this point should understand Rita Katz and SITE are propaganda mills working for Mossad.

Urgent action needed: FDA planning to regulate and control homeopathic remedies

Homeopathic remedies have been a trusted, safe method of healing for more than a century. Not only is it safe and effective, it is also proven, so much so that some countries in Europe even cover its use on health insurance.

However, in the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set its sights on homeopathic remedies and our access to it. This behavior is threatening the freedom of choice when it comes to personal health for millions of people in the U.S. – who rely on homeopathy for their health concerns.

 

THE BANKSTER WAR ON CASH; JP MORGAN CHASE BEGINS TO PROHIBIT THE STORAGE OF CASH IN ITS SAFETY DEPOSIT BOXES

Letters are apparently going out to some JPMoragnChase customers announcing that cash will be prohibited from being stored in the bank’s safety deposit boxes.

At the Collectors Universe message board, a commenter reports:
My mother has a SDB at a Chase branch with one of my siblings as co-signers. Last week they got a letter outlining a number of changes to the lease agreement, including this:

“Contents of the box: You agree not to store any cash or coins other than those found to have a collectible value.”

Another change is that signatures will no longer be accepted to access the box. The next time they go in they have to bring two forms of ID and they will be issued a four-digit pin number that will be used to access the box then and in the future.

Folks, this is the prelude to currency controls in this country, and it will not be pretty.

If you believe that a Cypress-style account “haircut” cannot happen here, you need to think again.

POLICE WORKING WITH DHS & MOTOROLA ARE USING PRIVATE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS TO CREATE A MASSIVE SPY NETWORK

When a 911 call comes in, St. Louis police now may be able to see the scene before responding officers have time to arrive.

It’s part of the Real Time Crime Center, opened Thursday to bring together an array of electronic resources — including a network of public and private surveillance cameras!

DHS puppet, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said:

“Today is a great day for law enforcement and a bad day for criminals in the city of St. Louis.” That says it all right there, law enforcement considers it a great day, when private corporations work with law enforcement to spy on you. Dotson adds, “Cameras in public space are a part of everyday life. The case study is there, the examples are there, we’re just getting caught up.”

Access to private cameras also means not having to wait for a business to open to examine its recorded images, Lt. Brent Feig said. “We’re really leveraging the public space,” he said.

Were I a resident of St. Louis, I do not believe that I would be “more safe”, with this equipment in place; rather, I would understand that the 4th Amendment,which used to protect US citizens against unreasonable search and seizure, no longer exists in practice, nationally.

I understand that I continue to sound like a chipped CD on this issue, but people with skills and kids, GET THE HELL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!

Saudi Arabia is not trying to crush U.S. shale plays. Its oil-price war is with the investment banks and the stupid money they directed to fund the plays. It is also with the zero-interest rate economic conditions that made this possible.

Market share is an important part of the motive but Saudi Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Ali al-Naimi recently emphasized that “The challenge is to restore the supply-demand balance and reach price stability.” Saudi Arabia’s need for market share and long-term demand is best met with a growing global economy and lower oil prices.

Iranian support for Yemen’s Houthis goes back years

If the U.S. ships intercept the Iranian convoy, they may find it is carrying humanitarian supplies to Yemen to relieve a populace facing massive shortages, Schenker said. Iran for years has provided humanitarian and military assistance to Shiite militias in Iraq and Lebanon, and in the past it has provided similar assistance to Sunni militias fighting Israel in the Gaza Strip.

“There is the possibility of a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions,” he said. “Nobody wants to go into Yemen to do this kind of work. But one thing we’ve learned over the past few years is that the Iranians always stand by their friends.”

I did a Google search for the Iranian “warships” on their way to Yemen and all Google showed were photos of the US warships heading for a confrontation. From this I conclude that the Iranian ships are not warships but cargo ships full of humanitarian aid, but Google doesn’t think you need to know that.

In addition, what corporate media will not discuss is that the the FBI informant who reportedly recruited the women, was also the one who introduced the book to the women.

US Warship Heads To Yemeni Waters; Could Block Iran Weapons

In a stepped-up response to Iranian backing of Shiite rebels in Yemen, the Navy aircraft carrier, USS Theodore Roosevelt, is steaming toward the waters off Yemen to beef up security and join other American ships that are prepared to intercept any Iranian vessels carrying weapons to the Houthi rebels.

The deployment comes after a U.N. Security Council resolution approved last week imposed an arms embargo on the Iranian-backed Shiite Houthi rebels. The resolution passed in a 14-0 vote with Russia abstaining.

Navy officials said Monday that the Roosevelt was moving through the Arabian Sea. A massive ship that carries F/A-18 fighter jets, the Roosevelt is seen more of a deterrent and show of force in the region.

Abbott Laboratories Challenged over GMO Ingredients in Infant Formula

For the third year in a row, shareholders at Abbott Laboratories’ annual meeting on April 24 will vote on a proposal to disclose which nutritional products, including Similac Infant Formula, contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and what actions the company is taking to reduce or eliminate those ingredients. The shareholder resolution was filed by environmental health advocacy organization As You Sow.

In January testing commissioned by Moms Across America found that the world’s number one herbicide, glyphosate, was found in Abbott’s PediaSure Enteral Nutritional Drink, which is widely used by hospitals in the U.S. for children who are in need of nutrition in intensive care. Glyphosate herbicides are used much more on GM crops than on conventional crops…

When a Cop Killed an Innocent White Youth, the Press Was Silent

When a Black Cop Killed an Innocent White Youth in Utah, the Press Was Silent
It has been reported that cops kill about 500 innocent Americans per year. More whites than blacks are victims of deadly police shootings. Yet most of those stories stay buried or at best, see limited life in local media or the blogosphere. Only the select, as in selected by the media, stories become as big as the Michael Brown story. Certain stories simply transcend the perceived boredom of news headlines and become a part of pop culture.

Does the media intentionally stir up racial hatred? Is it part of their agenda?

Police in Ottawa, Kansas shot and killed an 18 year old, unarmed teen Saturday night.

Ottawa police were called about 7:50 p.m. Saturday to Orscheln Farm and Home at 2008 S. Princeton St. on a report of a person reportedly armed with a gun.

However, the family of deceased 18-year-old Joseph Jennings, said there was no gun. Ottawa Police have not confirmed that Jennings was armed either.

When is a democracy not a democracy? When it’s in Britain

Imagine a country where the views of well over half of the electorate are discounted and treated as an irrelevance. Imagine a government in which well over half of the MPs are locked into place for life, depending entirely on where their constituency happens to be. Imagine a political system in which alternative parties have no chance of making any serious impact, despite gaining the support of more and more people and the two major parties being in ever-deepening decline. And imagine a so-called democracy where, despite a demonstrable majority against right-wing neo-liberalism having been in place for decades, that very thing has been implemented by both its major parties, with disastrous consequences for the country and public policy. That so-called democracy is in Britain.

It has become a popular position both in the mainstream and pseudo-alternative media, and among those on the Russophobic left, to downplay the significant fascist influence on the political and military institutions, as well as the cultural character of the “New Ukraine.” Quite often, the reality of Ukrainian fascism is obscured by vague assertions that such conclusions are merely “Russian propaganda,” that they are simply Kremlin talking points, and not statements of objective reality

So we have been seeing it for a while.

Now the whole point of the American involvement in Ukraine, which started with the funding of the coup last year, which overthrew the legitimate government, was to create tension in Ukraine for a long time.

 

Newly Leaked TTIP Draft Reveals Far-Reaching Assault on US/EU Democracy

A freshly-leaked chapter from the highly secretive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement, currently under negotiation between the United States and European Union, reveals that the so-called “free trade” deal poses an even greater threat to environmental and human rights protections—and democracy itself—than previously known, civil society organizations warn.

The revelation comes on the heels of global protests against the mammoth deal over the weekend and coincides with the reconvening of negotiations between the parties on Monday in New York.

The European Commission’s latest proposed chapter (pdf) on “regulatory cooperation” was first leaked to Friends of the Earth and dates to the month of March. It follows previous leaks of the chapter, and experts say the most recent iteration is even worse.

Evacuation warnings as ‘cyclonic’ storm hammers NSW

A flood evacuation warning has been issued for areas adjacent to Manly Lagoon on Sydney’s northern beaches with the deadly storm lashing much of coastal NSW set to hit peak ferocity overnight.

Residents in the area have been told to prepare to leave their homes should the NSW State Emergency Service issue an evacuation order due to an overflow threat from Manly Dam.

Hundreds of homes in the city’s north could be at risk if the dam overflows during high tide at 10.27pm and emergency services have spent much of the night door-knocking homes that are considered a flood threat.

 

‘Release cards’ turn inmates and their families into profit stream

In 2013 Gregg Cavaluzzi walked out of federal prison with nothing more than the clothes he wore going in five years earlier and a Chase-branded debit card holding what remained of money sent by family members and the meager pay he’d earned working in the prison library.

“They simply gave me the debit card and said ‘Your money’s on it,’” he recalled.

But when he used the card to pay for a celebratory meal at Wendy’s, Cavaluzzi noticed that his balance was lower than he expected. “I called Chase and they said there’s an administrative fee and a fee every time you use it at an ATM,” he said. As Cavaluzzi would soon discover, those were just two of several fees attached to his card. “There were fees for transferring the money to a bank and closing the account. There was even an inactivity fee if you didn’t use the card for 90 days. I left prison with $120. Because of the fees I was only able to use about $70 of it.”

How America’s Aristocracy Extends Its Global Control

As has been well documented even by the BBC, in their 1992 classic documentary about the CIA’s (still-ongoing) Gladio Operation, America’s CIA basically took control of the international racist-fascist (i.e., ideologically nazi) movement after World War II, by protecting and hiring Hitler’s Nazis and their key aristocratic eastern European supporters undercover. The Gladio Operation was just one branch of a broader CIA strategy, developed by Allen Dulles and originally carried out by his protégé James Angleton, to use, for the purposes of America’s aristocracy, nazis’ intense racism, by retargeting it away from Jews and toward Russians, so as to weaken first the Soviet Union, and, then, after the end of that, Russia itself. (U.S. President Barack Obama’s involvement with Ukraine is very much a result of this post-WW-II pro-nazi Dulles-Angleton program.)

 

Top Italian Daily Breaks Western Media Silence on Political Murders in Kiev

In an unusually frank assessment by mainstream Western media of Kiev’s post-Maidan regime, the Italian daily La Repubblica has denounced “a ruthless sweeping away of every form of political opposition taking place in Kiev”. The paper was reacting to yet another assassination in Ukraine — this time of a popular journalist Oles Buzina on April 16.

Not shy of calling a spade a spade, the article leaves no doubts as to what is happening in Ukraine, right from the headline: “Pro-Russian journalist murdered in Kiev. The third political homicide in 24 hours.”

Bond investors suspect the Venezuelan government is pretty low on cash. Just how low, though, is a tricky question.

Given how high the stakes are, with many investors bracing for an imminent default, Wall Street analysts are scrambling to fill the void. Firms including Bank of America Corp. and Barclays Plc have created their own statistical series to try to help investors understand how dire the country’s cash squeeze is. It’s a challenging exercise, they say.

 

Leaked emails expose Sony concern over report its cameras used in Gaza attack

Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chair Amy Pascal was proud to add her name to a letter with some 200 other Hollywood big wigs supporting Israel last summer in the midst of its bombardment of the occupied Gaza Strip.

But leaked emails released recently by Wikileaks show that behind the scenes company executives were worried about reports associating the Sony brand with the Israeli assault that left more than 2,200 people, 547 of them children, dead.

On 19 August, Stevan Bernard, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s head of corporate security wrote to David Diamond, executive assistant to company chairman and CEO Michael Lynton, to inform him about a media report “that Sony CCTV’s [sic] were being used as a part of the guidance system for Israeli rockets that were bombing Gaza.”

“In fact,” Bernard wrote, “they held up part of the camera housing for all to see.”

Police in Egypt: Torture, repression and bribes within departments and prisons

But it seems quite a few officers prefer the slogan: “the police rob the people,” given the theft, fraud and forgery that has been practiced against the citizens, who should be protected from thieves and criminals in the first place. In other words, the protector has become the robber.

Concealed Permit Holder Stops Attempted Mass Shooting in Chicago

On Friday, an Uber driver with a concealed carry permit thwarted an attempted mass shooting by pulling his own weapon and shooting a gunman who had opened fire in Chicago’s Logan Square.

Illinois Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn verified that the driver “had a concealed-carry permit and acted in the defense of himself and others.”

According to the Chicago Tribune, the driver was watching “a group of people” walk in front of his car on North Milwaukee Avenue just before midnight when 22-year-old Everardo Custodio allegedly “began firing into the crowd.” The Uber driver pulled his own gun and “fired six shots at Custodio,” wounding him in “the shin, thigh, and lower back.”

The attempted mass shooting ended with no one other Custodio injured.

Prosecutors drop robbery case to preserve stingray secrecy in St. Louis

Prosecutors in St. Louis, Missouri, have seemingly allowed four robbery suspects to go free instead of explaining law enforcement’s use of a stingray in court proceedings.

The St. Louis case provides yet another real-world example where prosecutors have preferred to drop charges instead of fully disclose how the devices, also known as cell-site simulators, work in the real world. Last year, prosecutors in Baltimore did the same thing during a robbery trial.

If use of the Stingray means you cannot prosecute the criminals you find with it, then why use it at all in the first place?What is Stingray really doing that the government would rather allow criminals go free to continue their criminality than inform the public what the system does?

 

Court sentences ousted Egypt president to 20 years in prison

An Egyptian criminal court on Tuesday sentenced ousted Islamist President Mohammad Morsi to 20 years in prison over the killing of protesters in 2012, the first verdict to be issued against the country’s first freely elected leader.

The Cairo Criminal Court issued the verdict as Morsi and other defendants in the case – mostly Muslim Brotherhood leaders – stood in a soundproof glass cage inside a makeshift courtroom at Egypt’s national police academy.

The case stems from violence outside the presidential palace in December 2012. Morsi’s supporters attacked opposition protesters, sparking clashes that killed at least 10 people.

The 20 year sentence isn’t for the killing of protesters, but for daring to oust the US puppet Mubarak! Still, compared to other leaders who defied the empire, like Saddam and Gaddafi, Morsi got off lucky, still being alive and all.

150 Tons of US “Diplomatic Mail” Stirs Kyrgyzstan

The putsch in Kiev has reminded governments in the Caucasus and Central Asia that they could fall victim to similar events at any time. This applies especially to countries in Russia’s sphere of influence, such as Kyrgyzstan. The specter of a Kyrgyz Maidan has haunted Bishkek since last year, when the suspicious activities of the U.S. State Department’s TechCamp project and the subsequent visit of George Soros raised a few eyebrows. Lately, Kyrgyz and Russian media went into a frenzy over the delivery of 150 tons of “diplomatic mail” to the U.S. Embassy in Bishkek:

 

Trans-Pacific Partnership: Not About Free Trade

The TPP covers a bewildering range of topics. In addition to conventional trade issues like tariff rates, it includes language on labor rights, environmental laws, copyright and patent protections, e-commerce, state-owned enterprises, corruption, and government procurement.

Trade deals like the TPP have grown so complex because the global trade community has figured out how to solve a problem that has bedeviled philosophers and political leaders for centuries: how to craft international agreements with teeth. The WTO’s dispute-settlement process, which serves as a model for the TPP, puts pressure on countries to actually keep the promises they make in trade deals. That’s why everyone with an agenda — wealthy investors, drug companies, labor unions, environmental groups, and so on — is scrambling to get on the bandwagon.

Fourth and Fifth Generation Warfare Arrives on European and Middle Eastern Battlefields

The U.S., British, Canadian and other Western military training of Ukrainian forces that include neo-Nazi gangsters from Ukraine and other parts of Europe and the NATO/CIA training support in Turkey and Jordan being provided to Islamist jihadis tied to the Islamic State, Al Nusra Front, and Al Qaeda represents the application of 4th generation warfare (4GW) and 5th generation warfare (5GW) tactics from the Pentagon’s and Central Intelligence Agency’s think tanks to the battlefield.

Kim Kardashian Gets Herself A New $400K Rolls Royce Luxury Car… And Promptly Customizes It

Kim Kardashian changes autos more than she transforms her shoes.

In any case, even her planner heels are no match for her costly taste in wheels. On Saturday, the 34-year-old big name was seen heading home in a shiny new model vehicle which cost her around a large portion of a million dollars. The new engine is a 2015 Rolls Royce Phantom, the base model of which begins at $407,000 – and obviously Kim Kardashian is not going to have the standard.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Since communism is the enemy, and peasants trying to improve themselves, priests with the slightest humanistic proclivity, and naturally anyone seriously challenging the status quo, are communists, they are also, by definition, enemies. In the National Security State, “enemies” are evil, a threat to “security,” and must be treated accordingly. No form of violence is excessive in a war between the forces of good and evil. This is why in every NSS in Latin America, Church people having any dealings that involve trying to elevate the status of the poor are suspect and potential victims of unlimited violence …” — Edward Herman

The Most Outrageous Fraud Ever Perpetrated on the Canadian People

The good folks at COMER have for years – decades, actually – been trying to get people to pay attention to what is far and away the biggest, most outrageous fraud ever perpetrated on the Canadian people. I am speaking here of the fact that instead of the Canadian government borrowing money from its own bank, our bank – the Bank of Canada (BoC) – it has, since 1974 chosen instead to borrow from private international and domestic financial institutions providing them with enormous, absolutely risk free profits for almost four decades.

US Navy Confirms Aircraft Carrier, Warships To Intercept Iranian Weapons Shipments In Yemeni Waters

The ‘proxy’ war is escalating very rapidly. As AP reports, Navy officials confirm that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is headed to Yemeni waters to intercept an Iranian weapons shipments. Just as we warned 10 days ago, the probability of a major escalation over the latest proxy Middle Eastern civil war escalated substantially when Iran parked two warships off the Yemeni coast.

It is only an assumption that the Iranian ships contain weapons. Given that Iran made no effort to conceal the sailing, I would not be surprised to find out it is actually humanitarian aid as 50% of the people of Yemen are now starving due to the US/Saudi war to re-impose US puppet rule. If the US sinks the Iranian ships and nothing but food parcels are seen floating in the wreckage, it will be as huge an embarrassment to the US as when the USS Vincennes shot down the Iranian Airbus.

 

Monsanto Furious At World Health Organization For Claiming Weedkiller Causes Cancer

Following Monsanto lobbyist comments recently that he’s “not stupid” enough to drink the weedkiller that he also proclaimed was safe enough that “you can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you;” Reuters reports that the maker of the world’s most widely used herbicide, Roundup, wants an international health organization to retract a report linking the chief ingredient in the weedkiller to cancer. The company said on Tuesday that a report, issued on Friday by the WHO, was biased: “The WHO has something to explain.” However, as one scientist noted, “there are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate…can promote cancer and tumor growth.”

 

America’s Waning Influence: Beijing To Invest $46 Billion In Energy, Infrastructure For US “Ally”

China is looking to succeed where the United States has failed. Beijing — which, as a reminder, has claimed it will not use its regional infrastructure development initiatives as a tool of foreign policy — is now set to facilitate the construction of nearly $50 billion in power plants, roads, and railways in neighboring Pakistan. The proposal, which will give China access to the Indian Ocean via the Gwadar port on the Arabian Sea, is part of President Xi Jinping’s ambitious “Silk Road” Economic Belt, a plan announced last year that aims to connect China with Europe via a series of infrastructure projects.

 

Multibillion Hedge Fund Manager: “Ultimately QE Will Fail; US And China Might Enter Recession At The Same Time”

When I started thinking about going short, I recognised that we live in the world where almost all central banks have been pulled into the Bernanke idea of asset bubble led economic growth, and that they would go to extraordinary lengths to keep the party going. Philosophically I knew this was foolish, but more importantly empirically I had noticed that Central Banks and government have a long and inglorious history of achieving the exact opposite of their stated aims. Examples of this include the US policy of promoting home ownership via Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, has ultimately led to lower levels of homeownership. In the 70s, the authorities believed that higher inflation led to lower unemployment, until it didn’t. In the 1990s, currency pegs in Asia were believed to give macroeconomic stability, until they did not. There are numerous other examples.

 

Hillary Clinton’s Libya Policy Ends with Drowned Migrants

The problem of migration from Libya springs from the chaos that has filled that country in the wake of the US-led Western invasion of the country – a policy championed first and foremost by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton pushed regime change in Libya, and pushed it hard. In February 2011, an uprising against then-dictator Muammar Qaddafi broke out; President Obama quickly pushed for sanctions, and the United Nations voted for a no-fly zone above the country. In March, ABC News reported that Obama had signed a presidential finding to send covert aid to the Libyan rebels. In September 2011, Obama called for Qaddafi’s forces to surrender. In October 2011, Hillary visited Tripoli and pledged millions to the Libyan opposition, gushing, “I am proud to stand here on the soil of a free Libya.” Two days later, Qaddafi was sodomized with a knife and then killed; Hillary was caught on camera crowing and laughing, “We came, we saw, he died!”

 

As Gazprom CEO Arrives In Athens, EU (Coincidentally) Files Anti-Trust Charges Against Russian Giant

As the head of Russian gas giant Gazprom, Alexei Miller, arrives in Athens tomorrow (for talks with Greek PM Tsipras about “current energy issues of interest,” which we suspect will include finalizing the “Turkish Stream” pipeline heralded by many as Greece’s potential get-out-of-Troika-jail-card), he will face an increasingly anxious European Union. Fresh from its suit against Google, the WSJ reports, the EU’s competition regulator plans to file formal antitrust charges against Russia’s state-owned gas company OAO Gazprom on Wednesday. This re-opens a suit from 2012 saying that it suspected the company of abusing its dominant position in those countries’ natural-gas supply. It appears Europe is getting nervous…

Having realized that a potential Greco-Russian pipeline deal could, according to one senior official “turn the tide”for the debt-stricken country, it appears the imminent arrival of Gazprom’s CEO (as Reuters reports):

Reparations: Obama Seeks to Punish All Americans for Slavery

Every decade or so, the radical left mentions paying reparations to African-Americans for pre-Civil War slavery. The idea is that even though slavery was abolished over 150 years ago, many in the black community are still suffering from its effects.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Dear Mr. Obama

I have never been a slave-owner. Nor were any of my ancestors. In fact my ancestors in New Hampshire operated a station on the underground railroad helping escaped slaves reach Canada.

Now imagine if I went up to Canada and knocked on the doors of the descendants of those escaped slaves and demanded payment from them for what my ancestors had done to help their ancestors. I would be laughed right off of the front porch and rightly so!

Every election season we hear this talk about slave reparations, but it is nothing but a pathetic attempt to lure disenchanted black voters back into the Democratic fold.

 

On Maidan Polish snipers were shooting, it was a provocation on orders from Washington

The presidential candidate of Poland, MEP Janusz Korwin-Micke in an interview with the Polish edition of “Wiadomosci” said that snipers who shot during the events on Maidan in February 2014, were trained in Poland. It is reported UAinside.
“The Maidan is also our job. Snipers were trained in Poland. The terrorists shot at Maidan 40 demonstrators and 20 police, just to provoke unrest”.
Answering specifying question of the journalist, what is the interest in Poland, Janusz Korvin-Mikk said, “We do this, to get the favor of Washington.”
Previously Janusz Korvin-Mikk said that he would like to see Ukraine remain independent, but as weak as possible. He also called the current events in Ukraine the U.S. aggression against Russia.

Laboratory tests have so far ruled out Ebola or any other virus, Mr Akinmade added.

Campus Administrators Invoke ‘Civility’ to Silence Critical Speech

University administrators are successfully rallying around the value of “civility” in discourse as a means of silencing and getting rid of professors deemed politically troublesome.

Writing in The Nation, Joan W. Scott, professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study’s School of Social Science in Princeton, N.J., and adjunct professor of history at the Graduate Center at City University of New York, reports that administrators at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign denied formerly tenured professor Steven Salaita a promised position at their institution because of critical comments he made about Israel’s 2014 military assault on Gaza.

“Well-organized supporters of Israel alerted the university to his tweets, accused him of anti-Semitism, and questioned his scholarship as well as his political judgment,” Scott writes.

JCCC: 410 mines launched from Ukrainian positions explode in Shirokino over 24 hours

“We registered that 410 mines that came from Ukrainian positions exploded in Shirokino over 24 hours. Yesterday, since the departure of the OSCE, massive machinegun and then mortar fire attacks started, ending with artillery. The key reason is great tensions between the sides,” he said.
According to Lentsov, units of Ukrainian volunteer battalion Azov remain in the vicinity of Shirokino, and they destabilize the situation.

Russia starts controlling banking operations involving 41 countries — media

Russia’s financial watchdog, Rosfinmonitoring, is introducing control over banking operations involving 41 countries, the Izvestia newspaper reported on Monday, citing the respective letter of the federal service.
The banks are to immediately inform the Federal Financial Monitoring Service (Rosfinmonitoring) about the operations of their clients, both individuals and companies, who are the residents of the US, Canada, the EU (28 countries), Australia, Norway, Iran, Syria, Sudan, New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico, Switzerland, North Korea and Jamaica.
If a bank neglects the demand, then its actions will be regarded as the violation of the Russian federal law “On Countering Legalization (Laundering) of Proceeds of Crime and Financing of Terrorism.”

EU may convene emergency summit on migration on April 24 — source

The European Union may convene an emergency summit on the issues of migration from North Africa to the 28-member bloc already on April 24, a European source said on Monday.
Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and European Council President Donald Tusk have earlier called for holding such a meeting after a disaster on Sunday when a vessel with 700 migrants onboard capsized some 200 kilometers to the south of the Italian island of Lampedusa.
The EU needs to revise several policies to ensure an efficient response to the challenges of the Mediterranean migration and carry out measures to save people in the sea, the source told TASS.
The 28-member bloc could allocate additional funds to organize the maritime and air patrol of the Mediterranean Sea, the source said. “The solution to these issues is far beyond the competence of ministers and may demand a political decision of the heads of states,” he explained.

Putin to visit Armenia on April 24 to participate in genocide commemorative events

“As part of the visit, the meeting of the presidents of Russia and Armenia will be held that will discuss the issues of bilateral agenda, cooperation in integration associations and also topical regional and international issues,” the statement says.
“As far as we understand, Putin and [Francois] Hollande will be staying in Yerevan at the same time. Their contacts on the sidelines of the programme planned by the Armenian side therefore cannot be excluded,” Peskov said on Friday.
The Turkish government acknowledges the fact of mass killings of Armenians, but opposes the use of the term genocide and says that the death toll on which the Armenian side insists is overestimated.
According to Ankara, the deaths of Armenians were not the result of a targeted policy of the government, but due to the civil war in the Osman Empire, in which Turks were also killed.

Five states that are waging the anti-Russian campaign at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) are Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the United Kingdom, the head of the foreign affairs committee of Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, said on Monday.
“The delegations of those countries that are most aggressive in the issue of the EU sanctions against Russia and that participate in the West’s anti-Russian hysteria most actively are against lifting sanctions against the Russian delegation,” Alexei Pushkov said.

Russian military breaks Crimea water blockade

Russian Defence Ministry units have fully restored the supply of fresh water to south-eastern Crimea. The area experienced water shortages after Kiev shut off the supply of water from the Dnieper River via the North Crimean Canal, a source meeting up to 85% of the peninsula’s demand for fresh water.
“Every 24 hours, the pipeline network pumps more than 20,000 cubic meters of water,” Bulgakov said. “The pipes were first laid to reach the North Crimean Canal, which allows to fully supply with fresh water [the cities of] Kerch, Feodosia and Sudak.”
The work involved about 500 service members and 200 units of military and special equipment.
In addition to that, field pipelines leading to the peninsula’s artesian wells have been deployed with a total length of more than 125 kilometers.

American Jews Should Have a New Goal — Recognizing Palestine

Now is not the time for despair among liberal American Jewish supporters of Israel. Neither justice nor the love of Israel can accommodate resignation. Rather, we must respond to the Middle Eastern reality with one important move: urge our own government to recognize Palestine.

Here’s why. Benjamin Netanyahu’s election-eve abandonment of the two-state solution fits in with a well-worn right-wing Zionist belief that the Palestinians must be worn down by a long, hard occupation or defeated in the next major war. But even if such a strategy were just, it would be nearly impossible to pull off. It depends on the complicity of the United Nations, Europe and the United States — not to mention Russia and China. And it is predicated on the notion that the world will not get involved on the Palestinians’ side.

Here is the path to peace…

ISRAEL: We recognize Palestine’s right to exist.

PALESTINE: Thank you. We now recognize Israel’s right to exist.

ISRAEL: Okay, so what do we do now?

PALESTINE: Do we have anything you want to buy?

ISRAEL: Sure.

PALESTINE: Great! You have things we want to buy! Let’s make some money!

ISRAEL: On that we can agree! So why didn’t we think of this before?

PALESTINE: It isn’t a new idea, but we can talk about that some other time. Send us your catalog.

ISRAEL: Okay, and you send us yours!

See how it works?

The bombshell book that could derail Hillary’s campaign: Foreign donors to her foundation ‘were rewarded through U.S. policy while she was Secretary of State’

Hillary Clinton shaped State Department policy to reward big money foreign donors to her family foundation, an explosive new book written by a political foe will claim.

According to author Peter Schweizer there is a clear trend of money flowing into the controversial Clinton Foundation and rewards emerging for donors – in forms such as free trade agreements and development projects.

The claims against Clinton, Secretary of State from 2009-13, are laid out in Clinton Cash, due to be published May 5th by HarperCollins.

 

The U.S. Is Helping Commit Atrocities in Yemen—And Pretending It’s Iran’s Fault

In an April interview with PBS Newshour, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked about Iran’s involvement in the escalating war in Yemen. His response was astounding and revealing.

“Iran needs to recognize that the United States is not going to stand by while the region is destabilized or while people engage in overt warfare across lines — international boundaries — in other countries,” Kerry said.

The quip was astounding because Iran is not bombing Yemen or engaged in “overt warfare” there, though it has given some support to one side. The culprit on the overt warfare front is Saudi Arabia.

 

Ukrainian website calls for mass deportations and internment of dissenters in Ukraine

This idea was put forward by website “Khvylya”, close to the administration of Poroshenko .

“The National Security Council should adopt a decision about the deportation from Ukraine to the Russian Federation of persons who are potential candidates for the dead in the name of the glory of the “Russian world” [Ukrainian media is putting the blame for recent murders in Ukraine on Putin – KR]. Deportation for their own safety, as shooting them on the territory of the Russian Federation loses all meaning. Let them go and preach that they are victims of Bandera terror and repressions, for which they may even make some money. We do not care, because none of us are going to refute the thesis of the Kremlin about the fascist junta and the banderites”

So the fans of the Kremlin should be confined for five years, until the regime and mentality will change in Russia, or offer them to leave on their own.

On Saturday, April 18th, the Commander of the U.S. Army in Europe, Ben Hodges, told Britain’s Telegraph that “There is a Russian threat,” and that “The best insurance we have against a showdown is that NATO stands together.”

Ever since the Soviet Union’s military alliance, the Warsaw Pact, dissolved in 1991, NATO has expanded eastward to Russia’s borders, and now it is preparing to admit yet another nation on Russia’s border: Ukraine. This eastward expansion broke (and breaks, since it’s continuing) a verbal agreement which had produced the termination of the Warsaw Pact (the Soviet Union’s equivalent of America’s NATO alliance).

Nigel Farage: David Cameron ‘directly caused’ Libyan migrant crisis

Nigel Farage has blamed “fanatical” David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy for the drowning of hundreds of migrants off Italy, saying the exodus was “directly caused” by western intervention in the civil war in Libya.

He said Britain should offer refugee status to some Libyan Christians.

Red Crescent: Tens of Yemeni Children Killed by Saudi Poison Gas

“We will display a video on the death of tens of children who died after inhaling poisonous gases,” an official of Yemen’s Red Crescent Society, Abdollah Maboud Al-Shokri, told FNA on Sunday.

He noted that the bomb explosions in the Saudi airstrikes not only destroy a large number of homes, but also create a thick cloud of poisonous and fatal gases.

Yemeni officials had already warned that the bombs that the Saudi regime has used in Sana’a were different from those used in other parts of Yemen.

They said that the bombs were of the very rare and dangerous type that resulted in the suffocation of the residents of the affected regions.

On Friday, eyewitnesses said that Saudi Arabia has used internationally banned weapons in its aerial bombardment on an area near Sana’a.

The Big Idea: California Is So Over

The water situation reflects this breakdown in the starkest way. Everyone who follows California knew it was inevitable we would suffer a long-term drought. Most of the state—including the Bay Area as well as greater Los Angeles—is semi-arid, and could barely support more than a tiny fraction of its current population. California’s response to aridity has always been primarily an engineering one that followed the old Roman model of siphoning water from the high country to service cities and farms.

But since the 1970s, California’s water system has become the prisoner of politics and posturing. The great aqueducts connecting the population centers with the great Sierra snowpack are all products of an earlier era—the Los Angeles aqueduct (1913), Hetch-Hetchy (1923), the Central Valley Project (1937), and the California Aqueduct (1974). The primary opposition to expansion has been the green left, which rejects water storage projects as irrelevant.

10 Points Every Christian Should Know About His Religion

Ever since working out in second grade that Santa was a hoax, I never blindly trusted again any “beliefs” that were in conflict with nature’s laws or common sense. I immediately worked out that the Easter Bunny was not real either, questioned every religious belief, and developed an insatiable thirst for truth. By the age of twelve I had already become an atheist and considered the Catholic Church to be the oldest, biggest, and possibly the most dangerous criminal organization in human history. Quite a feat for a 12-year-old altar boy growing up in a family of staunch Catholics who, then as now, practice their faith by the book.

 

IDF Censor Seeks Possible Phantom Leaker

Haaretz’s managing editor, Aluf Benn, published a series of articles (this is the main one) about an ill-fated Israel-Iran oil venture, the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Company (EAPC), that began in 1968 and ended in 1979, just after the Iranian Revolution. The most criticial part of the project was a pipeline running from Eilat to the major Israeli port of Ashdod. The Shah agreed to ship his oil via the pipeline, thus avoiding the Suez Canal, and then transport it, via tankers jointly owned by the venture, to Europe. Israel received approximately $200-million in oil from Iran before the Shah’s regime collapsed and Iran withdrew from the venture.

 

Cook County, IL….”If someone is caught with a misdemeanor amount of marijuana, the state’s attorney’s office will no longer prosecute that case,”

The Cook County state’s attorney’s office says it is changing the way it prosecutes low-level drug offenses, including dismissal of misdemeanor marijuana cases.

“If someone is caught with a misdemeanor amount of marijuana, the state’s attorney’s office will no longer prosecute that case,” office spokeswoman Sally Daly said Sunday. The program will cover people with fewer than three arrests or citations, she said.

No walls to save eurozone from ‘Greece amputation’ domino effect – Varoufakis

Those in the EU who want Greece to leave the eurozone are playing with fire, country’s Finance Minister said, claiming that no “fence” could possibly exist that would protect the union from a domino effect should Greece or any other member leave.

“Anyone who toys with the idea of cutting off bits of the eurozone, hoping the rest will survive is playing with fire,” Yanis Varoufakis told La Sexta, a Spanish TV channel. In an interview, recorded 10 days ago but broadcast on Sunday, Varoufakis warned that those in the EU who think they have been “ring-fenced” from the Greek struggle are mistaken.

He will talk about the evidence that has more than 2,340 members of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth demanding a new investigation of the near free-fall symmetrical destruction of three World Trade Center skyscrapers on September 11, 2001. In his presentations, Gage employs scientific and forensic principles to demonstrate that the high-rises could not have collapsed according to the official story, which blames plane impacts and jet fuel.

 

Could BROCCOLI protect against cancer? Compound in green cruciferous veg is found to ‘stop the growth of tumours’

Broccoli has long been hailed as a superfood, and it could soon protect people from cancer of the mouth, throat, neck and head, a study claims.

Scientists are developing a new treatment known as ‘green chemoprevention’ in which broccoli and other vegetables are used to prevent the disease.

They explained that cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and garden cress have a high concentration of sulforaphane – which is why they have a slightly bitter taste.

Previous studies, including large-scale trials in China, have shown sulforaphane helps ‘undo’ the effects of cancer-causing agents in the environment.

Men, women and children who boarded a United Express flight from Kansas City, Missouri, to Denver, Colorado, were instead diverted to Colorado Springs due to bad weather.

According to local news reports, officials at Colorado Springs airport said their temporary incarceration aboard the small airplane could have been avoided – if airline bosses had docked the plane for just $73.

However, I believe that it’s not only relatively easy to create, but it will be sold in such a way that the public will see it as an absolute panacea to their economic woes. Only those who are far-sighted will understand its level of destruction in advance of its implementation.

Two of those deaths were Bohm’s parents, who are believed to have been killed in the gas chambers immediately upon arrival in Auschwitz.
Note: But they tell us all the children were immediately killed. The kids in the picture look alive and well fed. More lies!

 

American Justice? FBI Lab Overstated 95% Of Forensic Hair Matches (Including 32 Death Sentences)

Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’s largest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.

The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison.

There are vast numbers of cases the FBI is known to have rigged lab test results on. Frederick Whitehurst, once the head of the FBI lab, tried to blow the whistle on this practice of framing innocent people under the guise of science. The FBI was caught faking the evidence in the murder of Vincent Foster, EVIDENCE found on the wreckage of TWA 800, the murder weapon planted on James Earl Ray in the assassination of Martin Luther King, etc.

More about the true nature of the FBI is at my COINTELPRO page.

Did Germany help fund Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program?

Germany secretly funded Israel’s clandestine nuclear arms program, according to reports in the German media, which contradicting denies made earlier this month by Israel’s former President Shimon Peres.

A report in German daily Die Welt claims an agreement was made during a meeting in New York in 1960 between Germany’s then-Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and Israel’s then-prime minister David Ben-Gurion.

Germany agreed to loan Israel $500m (£330m), officially to help develop the Negev desert but actually to help produce nuclear weapons.

The deal, called “Aktion Geschäftsfreund” (“Operation Business Associate”) was not authorised by the governments of either Israel or Germany, according to the report.

U.S. Army Special Operations Command is pushing back against alarmist claims that an upcoming U.S. military exercise is a preparation for imposing martial law or subduing right-leaning groups and individuals. Conspiracy theories about the exercise, known as JADE HELM 15, appeared online this week. Some commentators railing against the event referred to an online slide show allegedly created by USASOC, which outlined a special operations exercise slated to take place across multiple states, outside the confines of U.S. military bases. In the slide show, a map of the southwest region of the United States labels Texas and other territory as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket.” The document also refers to coordination with law enforcement agencies.

Central Bankers Next Test Of Omnipotence May Be Coming

Here we are, just barely into our first earnings season without the incessantly added fuel provided by QE and the markets are stumbling. At times on Friday the indexes were hovering near the possibility of posting 2% losses going into the weekend. In today’s media mindset of “everything is awesome.” That’s near – unthinkable.

Personally I watched for the now requisite headlines to cross the airwaves at any moment announcing “Federal Reserve member _____________________(fill in the blank) says: The Fed. can, may, will, or won’t do this, that, or the other thing. Just remember: it’s not the economy that’s important. It’s us. We decide for the economy – whether it needs us or not. Never forget: We’re all Keynesian’s now so – trust in us.”

The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) and Italy’s coastguard said only 28 people had survived the Sunday sinking, which is being described as the deadliest such disaster to date in the Mediterranean.

Reports suggested there had been about 700 people on board the 20-metre fishing boat, officials said.

US Farmers Going Out of Business Due to GM Crop Contamination

If you’re a farmer who wants to grow any crops that aren’t owned by the biotech industry, you had better be ready to burn some money. At least this is what organic farmers are saying, who are trying to grow organic crops but can’t due to pollen drift and cross-pollination. That’s right: GMO crops are contaminating the organic crops we’re fighting so hard to keep.

The news is out that demand for organic food is one the rise – it’s expected to be a $35 million dollar industry soon, and keep exploding from there. The challenge that organic farmers face; however, and one that the US FDA refuses to address, is that even in the highly subsidized markets of corn and soy growing, Big Biotech has the upper hand.

 

US Navy’s Creepy New Ads Send Conflicting Message About Liberty

“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.” – Kris Kristofferson

The principle battlefield in the war for your mind is public media. In this field of operations, winning hearts and minds is about creating illusions, managing perceptions, and cleverly blurring the lines between life, death and entertainment. The more exaggerated, absurd and over-embellished a claim is, the more volume it has in the crowded mental space of consumer culture.

Enter the United States Navy marketing team.

The Navy recently launched a new TV advertising campaign aimed at convincing would-be recruits and potential re-enlistees to visit their nearest Navy recruiting office to sign-up. The ads say very little, relying instead on powerful imagery, control fantasy and gripping soundtrack to send the message that the Navy is your shield, and since you can’t beat ‘em, maybe it’s better if you join ‘em.

Iran urges India, China & Russia to counter NATO missile system

Iran has announced its readiness to cooperate with Russia, China and India on the issue of NATO’s missile shield and related threats from the military bloc, the head of its defense ministry said in Moscow.

“I’d like to support the idea of developing multifaceted defense cooperation between China, Iran, India and Russia to counter NATO eastwards expansion and installing a missile shield in Europe,” Hossein Dehghan said on Thursday, at an international security conference in Moscow.

Hours later Dehghan was cited by RIA Novosti as saying that Russia, China and Iran may hold tri-party defense talks.

“We discussed certain aspects of regional security. It was proposed to hold a trilateral meeting of Russia, Iran and China,” Dehghan said after meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

 

Conference on the Israel Lobby—Press Blackout at the Press Club

So, where were the reporters of the mainstream media? Where was C-SPAN during a week when Congress was on a holiday and their cameras were not preoccupied by Capitol Hill activities—its foremost priority? Apparently, the American people were only to see and hear the extreme views of AIPAC that do not even command the support of a majority of American Jews who do favor a two-state solution, along with a majority of Arab-Americans.

Organized by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, which was launched about thirty years ago by a British Army Officer who served in World War II and two retired U.S. Ambassadors to countries in the Middle East (wrmea.org), the day-long program at the prestigious National Press Club should have been intriguing to reporters. After all, are they not interested in important, taboo-challenging presentations on a critical dimension of U.S. foreign and military policy?

Japan Bites Back: Allied Demonization of the Empire of the Sun

Joshua Blakeney is a freelance journalist originally from the UK based in Canada. He has been Press TV’s Canadian correspondent since April 2012. He is a co-host of The Real Deal radio show and co-founder of Non-Aligned Media. In 2014, after extensive archival research at the Diet National Library in Japan, Blakeney published Japan Bites Back: Documents Contextualizing Pearl Harbor, the topic of our discussion. Joshua begins with an overview of his journey into the world of WWII revisionist history, a subject that is far less taboo in Japan than it is in the west. He speaks about the backdrop of Japan as the perceived aggressor in the Pearl Harbor operation, and the threat of communism that went against Japan’s unique, homogenized and autonomous way of living. Joshua explains the history of Japan’s interests in preserving the Asiatic agrarian societies and the need to expel White influence.

‘We came, we saw, he died!’ – How the 1st African-American US president used AFRICOM to take out Gaddafi

We only have to take a look at the current situation of the Blacks in NATO-led Libya to understand that this was not quite the case. Libya, in 1951 officially the poorest country in the world, under Gaddafi attained the highest standard of living in Africa. The country’s prosperity attracted many Black African immigrants, during the 2011 war on Libya by the mainstream media purposely misnamed as being “black sub-Saharan African mercenaries”. Gaddafi provided them with work and education. Those immigrant workers, to whom Gaddafi was a hero, a father and a friend, now face the cruelest forms of racism by the Western-installed Libyan puppet regime. Just one telling example is a video in which Libyan “rebels” force Black immigrants to eat the green flag of the Libyan Jamahiriya.

Pakistan’s first Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan was assassinated by America

Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan, Pakistan’s first Prime Minister, was assassinated on October 16, 1951 while addressing a public meeting in the garrison city of Rawalpindi. His assassin, later identified as Saad Akbar Babrak was shot dead on the spot. Saad Akbar Babrak was an Afghan national and a professional assassin. For more than 63 years controversy continued about the motives and perpetrators after the assassination of Liaquat Ali Khan. Conspiracy theories abounded with little to substantiate. However, the controversy is now coming to end as declassified documents of the US State Department disclosed that Americans murdered the first elected prime minister of Pakistan through the Afghan government.

The US documents, released several years ago but highlighted recently by the Pakistani media and social media.

 

Ukrainian Regime Persecutes and Kills Opposition Politicians and Journalists

According to 2014 Reporters Without Borders report, Syria, Palestine, Ukraine, Iraq and Libya have been named the deadliest countries for reporters. (1) Conflict-torn Ukraine has become the worst country for journalists’ abductions, murders and attacks. Since May to August 2014 6 journalists died in Ukraine, dozens of reporters were attacked or physically threatened. Many journalists had to leave Ukraine being afraid for their lives. It all started after the advocates of Ukrainian integral nationalism came to power as a result of coup in February 2014. The new ideology was formed by Ukrainian fascists in 1920-1940s. It’s a mixture of Italian fascism and German Nazism adapted to Ukrainian realities.

 

High Court: Israel Can Legally Seize Palestinian Homes in East Jerusalem

The purge of Palestinian civilians during the founding of Israel left a lot of empty, Arab-owned housing across the country, owned by a lot refugees who were never to return. The 1948 “Absentees’ Property Law” allowed the state to seize those homes to redistribute to incoming Jews.

Today, the Israeli Supreme Court has ruled that the law can be applied to occupied East Jerusalem, allowing the Israeli government to seize the property of Palestinian owners if they live in the occupied West Bank.

He said 24 bodies had been recovered.

 

ISIS Secret Service: Slain top strategist’s blueprints reveal covert Syria takeover op

While ISIS appears to be run by religious fanaticism, it instead has been functioning more like a secret intelligence service, calculating every operation and drafting plans of a covert Syrian takeover for years, files seen by Der Spiegel have revealed.

The German magazine is citing secret papers of the strategic head of ISIS, who was killed in a firefight in 2014, but who left behind information regarding a trove of blueprints for ISIS intelligence services’ structure and plans of a takeover of large parts of Syrian territory.

During the live broadcast that lasted 3 hours and 57 minutes, the President answered 74 questions out of the over 3 million that were received.

(Ed Note: Even though 3 million questions were received, they were frequently broadly similar and were in fact rolled together into approximately 200 questions, out of which President Putin answered 74 during the marathon live broadcast).

More Americans favor gun rights over gun control for first time

According to Pew research, the percentage of Americans who thought gun rights were more important was only 29-34 percent during the 90s. In the 00s, that number shot up and down between the 32 and 45 percent. Around the turn of the current decade, the numbers were roughly even for several years, but in December 2014 the number of Americans who value gun rights surpassed those who prefer gun control for the first time. The numbers are currently 52 percent and 46 percent.

Did Presidential Candidate, Marco Rubio, Make A Deal With The Devil?

Is mainstream media really going to ignore that Marco Rubio’s campaign is named after the late 1990?s think tank called a ‘Project for a New American Century’ (PNAC), founded by Head Neocon – Bill Kristol? And this is no coincidence. Guess who’s doing the Sunday talk show circuit campaigning for a Rubio presidency? You know it…

Now as a reminder the PNAC is a lobby group formed by a host of neocons at the end of the 1990?s with an objective of war in the Middle East. See if you recognize a few of the notable names of people that signed the PNAC’s founding statement of principles; Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Ron Perle and Paul Wolfowitz. You’ll note these guys became Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Defense Policy Board and Deputy Secretary of Defense, respectively, under president Bush about six months before 9/11.

 

By one measure, Hillary earned more than America’s top 10 CEOs

235 years later, The Hermione sails again to America

This is L’Hermione, the ship that carried Le Marquis de Lafayette from France to Boston in 1780 to help the American revolutionaries fight the Brits.

Three years before, when he was just 19 years old, he offered his services to the insurgent American army. After fighting in several battles and being wounded, he returned to France in 1779 to seek aid from King Louis XVI on behalf of the American revolutionaries. He came back with a whole army…

WHAT WAS FORGOTTEN ON HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY?

What, exactly, was remembered during Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day this week?

Not the victims of Israel’s latest slaughter in Gaza, where more than 2,200 civilians were killed less than a year ago. In the propagandistic world of “Holocaust memory” only Jews can be victims, so mainstream media marginalize the hundreds of Jewish Holocaust survivors and their descendants who publicly condemned “the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza” (their words). Instead, a leading Israeli newspaper informed us this week that “adult children of Holocaust survivors in Israel tend to be more anxious than their peers … about the Iranian nuclear threat” — even though Iran has no nuclear weapons and has never attacked Israel.

Flashback 6 Years Ago Today! ‘InfoWarrior’ Jason Bermas: Jew Critics Are ‘Anti-Semites’ Who Should Hang Or Electrocute Themselves

Six years ago today, I was listening to an Infowars broadcast and heard fill-in host and Alex Jones protégé Jason Bermas excoriate a caller for daring to mention the word Jew on air. Bermas went on an insane rant, telling the caller “Look man. It’s not a Jewish conspiracy OK? Get over it… Give me a break dude, please go hang yourself. There’s somebody I wouldn’t mind with a little population control. The question is, if you’re asking that question, why are you still breathing? I mean why haven’t you really just taken a toaster oven and thrown it in the bathtub with yourself and had a party? Because that’s what you need to do.” I broke the story, which prompted Bermas & Jones to respond to my article on air the next day, with the original caller calling back in. It caused quite a stir in the “patriot community”, prompting Jeff Rense, Texe Marrs & many others to sharply criticize Bermas, who seemed to disappeared from the scene soon thereafter.

The meeting of the shadowy organisation will fuel fears of a growing resurgence in hatred towards Jews across Europe. The vile event was observed by a Mail on Sunday undercover team. Held in London’s Victoria, the meeting was, said experts, the most significant gathering of Holocaust deniers Britain has ever seen, with speakers invited from Spain, Canada and the United States.

East Ukraine rebels using white phosphorous? Kiev junta’s “projection” exposed!

A Ukrainian article suggesting rebel use of white phosphorous have been furiously circulated on social networking sites. The article makes the claim that the a battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (the Crimea Battalion) came under white phosphorous fire from rebel forces.

This blatant piece of propaganda on behalf of the Kiev junta, who have themselves been accused of deploying the banned munition, has been exposed by video-blogger Anatoliy Shariy. Shariy demonstrates how a photo purporting to show Kiev’s use of white phosphorous taken by the rebel forces in June of 2014 and subsequently published in Komsomolskaya Pravda was manipulated by simply creating a mirror image and then used as “evidence” that the rebels have also been guilty of the same war crime.

How Oklahoma City Bombing Propaganda Effects Real Americans Decades Later

Mohammed Abdullah is a black American, U.S. Marine veteran, and convert to Islam who found something very wrong with his country’s government. Abdullah, an armed guard, had come to disbelieve the U.S. government’s official story regarding 9/11. He also felt a serious moral obligation to expose the lies, which blame Muslims for the attack. So he stood outside the local police dept. handing out DVDS & fliers. Soon after, the Police Dept. itself & the City Attorney filed a restraining order against him, in an attempt to ban him from all contact with hundreds of city employees. In shocking court testimony, one of the ‘victims,’ a female officer, justified her fear of Abdullah and his words with her beliefs about OKC and anti-government extremists. She referred to “my knowledge of incidents at Oklahoma City” and how “no one was able to do anything about it because of First Amendment rights.”

Belgium, which in 2012 was not even among the top ten holders of Treasury securities, recently, and quite unexpectedly, moved into third place.

The leaders of the world’s biggest companies will discuss the current regional problems against the background of global changes – decreasing U.S. influence; the increased roles of Russia and China as well as people’s growing mistrust of business and the state.
We are entering an era that will see an end to the US unilateral rule over the world. Countries like Russia and China are assuming more dominating roles, John Riadi, the forum’s co-chairman and director of Lippo Group, one of the biggest conglomerates in Indonesia, said. According to him, geopolitical changes bring new challenges, including economic ones that cannot go unnoticed.
Another global trend, according to the forum’s co-chairman, is the low level of popular trust in the state and business.

Former Director of Public Prosecutions was ‘never informed’ of Lord Janner child sex abuse allegations

The former Director of Public Prosecutions says he was “not told” about the allegations of historic child sex abuse against former Labour MP Lord Janner.

Speaking on BBC’s Today programme, Lord Macdonald QC says the regional crown prosecution service in Leicestershire didn’t refer the case to him at the time.

Lord Greville Janner, 86, was investigated between 1991 and 2007 by three separate police forces, accused of using his position as an MP to abuse vulnerable young boys at a children’s home.

The cases allegedly occurred in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, while Lord Janner was MP for Leicester North West and then Leicester West.

Putin warns Israel on possible lethal arms delivery to Kiev

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Israel against a possible supply of lethal weapons to the Ukrainian government, following Moscow’s decision to deliver S-300 surface-to-air missile system to Iran.

He issued the warning in an interview aired on Rossiya 1 TV on Saturday, saying that the move by Tel Aviv would be “counterproductive” and “only cause a new round of hostility.”

“The death toll would rise, but the result would not change,” Russia Today quoted the Russian leader as saying.

The remarks came after some Israeli politicians suggested that the regime might send lethal weapons to Ukraine in retaliation for Russia’s planned supply of S-300 missile system to Iran.

 

Ted Cruz’s frightening gun fanaticism: When a presidential contender encourages armed insurrection

This view of gun rights that casts personal firearm ownership as a check on the abuses of government doesn’t make a great deal of practical sense, and it betrays a lack of faith in our democratic institutions.

The loss of faith in the institutions of government is the government’s own doing. Lies about Saddam’s nuclear weapons, lies about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, lies about human-caused global warming, lies about the true scale of unemployment, in sort, decades of lies about pretty much everything have taught the American people a bitter lesson that this government cannot and should not be trusted.

Capitalism has failed and in the process, decayed into fascism, as many world leaders predicted would be the case. history shows us what fascist governments do to their own people to perpetuate their own power and wealth. The Founding Fathers remembered that, which is why we have the Second Amendment.

As for the practical side, let me share a quote from Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn’s “The Gulag Archipelago”

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation… We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

ood Feud: More Cities Block Meal-Sharing for Homeless

More American cities are blocking individuals and ministries from feeding homeless people in parks and public squares, and several Americans have been ticketed for offering such charity, according to a forthcoming report by the National Coalition for the Homeless.

To date, 33 cities have adopted or are considering such food–sharing restrictions, according to the coalition, which shared with NBC News a draft of its soon-to-be published study.

Police in at least four municipalities – Raleigh, N.C.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Birmingham, Ala.; and Daytona Beach, Fla. – have recently fined, removed or threatened to jail private groups that offered meals to the homeless instead of letting government-run service agencies care for those in need, the advocacy group reports.

Mike and I participate in a couple of food distribution programs, sponsored by two local churches; one is for state-recognised food-insecure children, and the other is for general food distribution to people who are food insecure.

Trust me, these people are not lazy in any way. Some are elderly with no local family to help them; others fall through the cracks in terms of benefits.

But I thoroughly understand that cities don’t like the homeless around, because homelessness makes cities “look bad”.

But there is a remarkable answer, and that is what the state of Utah (who knew?!?) is doing to eliminate their homeless problem. And it is an intelligent, and compassionate approach. As reported at nationalswell.com in December of 2013:

Utah has reduced its rate of chronic homelessness by 74 percent over the past eight years, moving 2000 people off the street and putting the state on track to eradicate homelessness altogether by 2015. How’d they do it? The state is giving away apartments, no strings attached. In 2005, Utah calculated the annual cost of E.R. visits and jail stays for an average homeless person was $16,670, while the cost of providing an apartment and social worker would be $11,000. Each participant works with a caseworker to become self-sufficient, but if they fail, they still get to keep their apartment.

I certainly wish that the folks in these cities criminalizing homelessness would take a page from Utah’s example, and get things working for their homeless populations. It can be done, if there is a will to do it.

In 1993 on this date April 19th the federal government murdered this man and his family (children) on national TV TALMUDVISION and many more. Why? Because they could.

OKC Bombshell Implicates Feds In Murrah Blast

In reality, the ANFO story was born only 10 minutes after the blast when a high-ranking BATF official by the name of Harry Everhart witnessed the blast from nearby and called the BATF office in Dallas to excitedly announce, “Someone has just blown up the federal building in Oklahoma City with a truckload of ANFO!”

Some reporters and investigators, who have looked objectively at the bombing, now argue that neither Everhart nor anyone else could have correctly deduced in such a short time exactly what caused the explosion.

According to government documents released later, Everhart was experienced in loading large amounts of ammonium nitrate fertilizer into a vehicle for use as a terrorist truck bomb, and his presence in the midst of the second worst terrorist attack in U.S. history looms suspicious to this day.

 

OK City – Why Did Bill Clinton’s National Security Council Fund ATF “Experiments” in Building Home Made ANFO Truck Bombs in 1994?

According to the federal government, an Ammonia Nitrate-Fuel Oil (ANFO) truck bomb allegedly destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in downtown Oklahoma City on the morning of Wednesday, April 19, 1995. Also, according to recently released government documents, an individual experienced in loading large amounts of ammonia nitrate fertilizer into a vehicle for use as a terrorist truck bomb was present at the OKC scene and actually witnessed the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. Records indicate that this ANFO explosives expert and his associates had constructed and destroyed at least eight vehicles in “test bombing experiments” out at a secret range in the New Mexico desert in the twelve months prior to the OKC bombing. He and his fellow explosives experts even photographed and videotaped these truck bombs as they detonated.

 

San Jose CAFR: $5.4 billion ‘pension fund’ LOSES $17 million, but pays $24 million to ‘advisors.’ Public banking, monetary reform are answers

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

The City of San Jose’s 2014 Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (CAFR) reveals:

A $5.4 billion Pension Trust Fund (pg. 194) that generated $105 million income from interest and dividends (pg. 195), and pays advisors $24.4 million for investment expenses (pg. 195).
A comprehensive financial strategy of purchasing debt securities to earn interest ($58.6 million, page 195), and selling debt securities that cost interest ($98.4 million, page 201).

Therefore, this financial strategy involving a $5.4 billion pension fund cost $17 million to taxpayers and retirees (income minus interest and investment expenses) while paying the advisors to manage these “investments” $24 million.

And it might be worse than this because the CAFR is not transparent with how much debt securities cost taxpayers:

Page 201 states a $98 million interest cost, but page 85 has total interest cost for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015 as $135 million.

 

Dick Morris – Bill Clinton Personally Orchestrated the 1993 Waco, Texas Tragedy

In response to Bill Clinton’s highly publicized linking of the Tea Party movement to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing in an op-ed piece for the New York Times, former Clinton adviser Dick Morris disclosed on Monday that it was Clinton himself, and not Attorney General Janet Reno, as Americans have been led to believe for the past 17 years, who called the shots during the 1993 botched invasion that led to the death of seventy-six people.’

Oklahoma City Bomb Report

This report on the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was prepared by Brigadier General Benton K. Partin, USAF (Ret.) and dated July 30, 1995.

The report was submitted to the U.S. Congress and is a matter of the Congressional Record.

What is important to remember is that Congress was going to hold an investigation into what happened at Waco. The BATF had collected all the evidence and stored it in the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. When the building was destroyed, so was all the Waco evidence!

 

“It’s easy to assume that workers earning less than $15 is a small subset of the workforce. But, in fact, 42% of all workers in the United States fit this bill. Just over half of all African Americans earn less than $15 an hour, and nearly 60% of Latinos

TURNS OUT IT’S 42% OF ALL U.S. WORKERS.
Ever since fast-food workers walked off their jobs in New York City in November 2012 to demand $15 per hour, that dollar figure has been the rallying cry of the low-wage worker movement.
The campaign has had some notable wins lately, as Wal-Mart, Target, T.J.Maxx, and McDonald’s announced increases to their minimum wages.

 

A federal judge has ruled that FBI agents went too far when they shut off Internet service to a hotel room, then posed as repairmen so they could get a peek into the room without a search warrant

FBI agents cut off Internet service to the room at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas where world champion poker player, Paul Phua, 50, was staying last July, and then claimed to be the repairmen summoned to fix it.

FLASHBACK – WACO – Who Shot First?

Contrary to the image of a dangerous gun nut put out in the media in an effort to justify the burning of the church, official BATF records prove that David Koresch was rather harmless, so much so that the BATF agents invited him to go shooting with them just 9 days before they raided the church. Koresch supplied the ammunition. The BATF agents allowed Koresch to try out their weapons.

Here is the official BATF report.

The Oklahoma City Bombing – Were there additional explosive charges and additional bombers?

A brief overview of the official story of the Oklahoma City bombing:

 

The Oklahoma City Bombing – The CNN Reports of additional bombs.

LEA: All right. We just saw, if you were watching there- there was a white pick-up truck backing a trailer into the scene here. They’re trying to move people out of the way so they can get it in. It appears to be the Oklahoma County Bomb Squad. It’s their bomb disposal unit, essentially, is what it is. And it is what they would use to- if- if the report that we gave you just a few moments ago turns out to be correct, that they have found a second explosive device of some kind inside this building, they’ll back that trailer down there and the bomb squad folks will go in and they will use that- that trailer- you see the bucket on the back there. Sort of- this is how they would transport the explosive device away from this populated area to try to do something with it.

The Oklahoma City Bombing – PROOF there were additional explosive charges.

The Oklahoma City Bombing – What was the Army doing with a Ryder Truck just before the Murrah blast?

The pilot who took the photos wishes (for the obvious reasons) to remain anonymous, but these photos are purported to be of an area near Camp Gruber-Braggs, Oklahoma in early April of 1995. Needless to say, just days after this photo was taken, the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed (along with internal cutter charges) by a Ryder truck full of explosives.

NEW! In a recently discovered news article written by the Washington Post on June 17th, 1997, the Oklahoma National Guard authenticates the following photos as being exactly what they appear to be, photos of a Ryder truck in a clandestine base at Camp Gruber-Braggs.

 

Germany Seeks Compensation for $57M Holocaust Fraud

Ever since the world’s leading Holocaust charity discovered a massive insider fraud in 2009, its leaders have insisted that German taxpayers, rather than needy Holocaust survivors, had to foot the bill.

But a letter obtained by the Forward suggests that politicians within the German Parliament want the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany to compensate for the $57 million that was lost.

In the December 2014 letter, Matthias Hass, of Germany’s ministry of finance, stresses Germany’s “requirement” that the Claims Conference “makes repayments to compensate for the financial damage arising from the cases of fraud.”

So, a Holocaust “Charity” defrauds the German government out of $57 million, but wants German taxpayers to carry the loss rather than return the ill-gotten gains?

That sounds about par for the course.

Ukraine ceasefire violations blamed on ‘unidentified third party’ – OSCE

The fragile truce in eastern Ukraine has on several occasions been violated by an “unidentified third party,” the OSCE mission stated in its daily report, citing officers of the joint coordination center who were trying to organize a ceasefire.

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) has witnessed three attempts by the Joint Centre for Control & Coordination (JCCC) to organize a ceasefire between Ukrainian troops and the self-proclaimed republics’ forces, according to the new report dated April 16. But within minutes after the arranged time, ceasefires were broken by a “third party,” Ukrainian and Russian officers tasked with mediating the truce told OSCE representatives.

“According to both Ukrainian Armed Forces and Russian Federation Armed Forces officers at the observation point, an unidentified ‘third party’ was provoking the two sides,” the mission’s report says.

Now, who would do a dastardly thing like that, I wonder! :)

 

Iranian ship convoy moves toward Yemen, alarming US officials

U.S. military officials are concerned that Iran’s support for Houthi rebels in Yemen could spark a confrontation with Saudi Arabia and plunge the region into sectarian war.
Iran is sending an armada of seven to nine ships — some with weapons — toward Yemen in a potential attempt to resupply the Shia Houthi rebels, according to two U.S. defense officials.

What’s unusual about the new deployment, which set out this week, is that the Iranians are not trying to conceal it, officials said. Instead, they appear to be trying to “communicate it” to the U.S. and its allies in the Gulf.

Which suggests to me that the convoy is actually food and humanitarian aid.

 

Marines launch a ‘kamikaze’ drone from an Osprey aircraft

The Marines tested a small unmanned aircraft known as the Switchblade recently at Twentynine Palms, Calif., flying it directly at targets from both the ground and the back of the Osprey, a long-range aircraft that has rotors like a helicopter, but can fly like a plane once they rotate forward. They were “inert,” with no explosives on board, but the mission went off without a hitch, said Col. James Adams, commanding officer of Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron 1.

“They can kamikaze this thing into a target,” Adams said. “It’s not a huge explosive charge, but like a hand grenade explosive charge.”

 

Supreme Court won’t hear appeal of group seeking to sue Ottawa over CWB

The Supreme Court of Canada said it will not hear an appeal from a farm group that wants to sue the federal government for billions of dollars over the Canadian Wheat Board. Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board filed a class-action lawsuit in 2012 over legislation that removed the marketing agency’s monopoly on western wheat and barley sales.

It sought leave to appeal after a lower court struck down the main parts of the class-action.

Canadian Wheat Board to be sold to Saudi-owned Global Grain Group

The federal government is privatizing the Canadian Wheat Board with a sale to a Saudi-owned company.

G3 Global Grain Group will get 50.1 per cent of the company in exchange for an investment of $250 million. The other 49.9 per cent will be kept in trust for farmers who deliver grain to the board.

Any farmer who does deliver will get $5 per tonne in equity in the organization. In seven years, G3 Global Grain Group has the option to buy back the shares from farmers at market value.

 

SOLD! Canadian Wheat Board no longer quite so Canadian

“Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced that G3, a joint venture owned by two foreign corporations, Bunge and the Saudi investment company SALIC, is the beneficiary of CWB privatization. With this, the Conservative government has accomplished the biggest transfer of wealth away from farmers in the history of Canada,” said Jan Slomp, National Farmers Union (NFU) President.

“The CWB’s physical assets, its commercial relationships, and its good name have all been given away. The ‘buyers’ of the CWB actually get to keep the $250 million pittance they are ‘paying’ for it. Bunge’s 2014 sales totalled $58 billion and multi-billion dollar SALIC is a subsidiary of the Saudi sovereign wealth fund, PIF.”

 

Can the courts liberate the Bank of Canada?

You know the old aphorism, “If a tree falls in the forest…?” Well, how about this one: if citizens win a significant victory in court against an autocratic government involving the fleecing of Canadians of billions of their hard-earned tax dollars and no one in the media actually covers it, did it really happen?

That might well be the question being asked over at the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER), a very small and low-budget Toronto think-tank. With their lawyer Rocco Galati (of Supreme Court fame in the Nadon case) they have been steadily winning court battles initiated in 2011 that would oblige the Bank of Canada to return to its pre-1974 practice of lending the government money virtually interest-free. But the mainstream media has boycotted the story. Galati believes the Harper government has done some serious arm-twisting to keep the story buried.

 

Blinded by laser-armed cops – scared yet?

Last summer’s riots in Ferguson, Missouri, prompted much talk by President Obama and certain members of Congress about the need to demilitarize local police forces. Nearly a year later, the opposite is happening.

New and more powerful weapons are flowing into local police departments daily, and still others are new to the marketplace.

One weapon about to make its debut is the “Z-Ro Retinal Obfuscation” gun. When fired, the gun allows an officer to temporarily blind his targeted subject for up to 15 minutes.

 

Did the Senate just blow up the Iran nuclear deal?

Too many cooks spoil the broth, and that appears to be precisely what the Senate had in mind. Not just Israel’s friends in Congress, but the preponderance of the liberal foreign policy establishment worries that Obama has sacrificed urgent national security concerns out of personal ambition or sentiment. Steadfast Obama supporters like the Times’ Thomas Friedman expressed grave reservations, and the elders of the Republican establishment, Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, authored an extraordinary joint statement published April 7 in the Wall Street Journal. 39 Senators and 447 Congressmen signed a letter to the Islamic Republic of Iran warning that a future administration might void the present deal.

Lets stop with the Auschwitz lies

This is a factual list of facilities available to prisoners at the alleged Nazi death camp of Auschwitz in Poland.

Most of these facilities can still be seen in the camp today, including the cinema, swimming pool, hospital, library and post office.

The Nazi German camps were factory operations where the inmates made war materials for the German army, a parallel to the booming prison-labor industry in the United States Today. But at the end of WW2, the planners of Israel faced a major problem. The world had just united against Germany on the principle that one nation does not have a right to simply march into another nation and take it for their own use, which is exactly what the planners of Israel wanted to do to Palestine. Israel needed a propaganda weapon so powerful that all the world’s nation that had sacrificed so much blood and treasure would be convinced that what Germany could not be allowed to do to Poland and France, Israel had to be allowed to do to Palestine. So using Jewish-controlled media, slave-labor facilities became death camps, delousing became gassing, shower rooms became gas chambers, deaths from typhus epidemics became extermination, and one of the greatest lies ever told was born.

BEX ALERT – Preserving the Ghastly Inventory of Auschwitz

READER COMMENT: On my visit I wish they would have preserved more. Entering the main gate is the brothel building and one of the libraries. It is not labeled. Inmates were given Auschwitz script for working and they could use it at the brothel and canteen. Again not labeled. I saw the site where one of the 3 Jewish orchestras played. The kitchens that cooked and fed the prisoners were not labeled. They showed me a gas chamber with the original wood door and glass window. Apparently the Jews were obedient and didn’t want to destroy the glass or they could have escaped. The swimming pool for the inmates is inside the fence but you can’t see it unless you know where to look because the windows of the adjoining buildings have been blacked out. I saw the hospital where inmates were given the finest medical treatment and if need an outside specialist was called in. The soccer field where the inmates played was still there. One of the most interesting buildings was where mainly Jewish “detainees” gave plays, concerts, and other programs. There is so much more I hope they preserve but accurately label. The displays of shoes, glasses, suitcases, etc. are fake. They are on a platform at a 45 degree angle. There is nothing below, just one top layer but they want to give the impression that it is full.

The bloggers also have a Twitter account to share ‘successes.’ The volunteer-made website calling itself ‘Mirotvorec’ (Peacekeeper), posts very thorough and comprehensive information on anyone who happens to make the list – journalists, activists, MPs opposing the current Kiev authorities’ policies and rebels fighting against the government in the east. The posts include their addresses, social media account links, a substantial biography and any mentions in the Ukrainian press. There is also labeling involved e.g. “terrorist; supporter of federalization” and other tags.

Observers say “third side” provoking clashes near Donetsk airport

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) citing representatives of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) in Ukraine reports that unidentified groups were provoking clashes between Ukrainian military and militia fighters of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) said on Friday in the daily report of April 16 placed on the organisation’s website.
In particular, the SMM team members said they witnessed attempts of the JCCC representatives to organize three ceasefires but within a few minutes they were violated by “sporadic firing of mortars and machine guns.”
“According to both Ukrainian Armed Forces and Russian Federation Armed Forces officers at the observation point, an unidentified ‘third party’ was provoking the two sides,” says the OSCE report.

And it is absolutely evident that power in Kiev is in the hands of Nazis. I have been there and I have seen them on the streets. For several months, I have been trying to bring it home in my publications that Russia is right in respect of Ukraine. And if I disprove anything in Moscow’s policy and course, I openly write about that as well.”

 

Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc claims receiving threats from nationalist organization

In the letter, the UPA nationalist organization claims responsibility for the “elimination” of ex-MP Mikhail Chechetov, ex-chairman of the Zaporizhia regional administration Alexander Peklushenko, former lawmaker Stanislav Melnik, former MP Oleg Kalashnikov and journalist Oles Buzina.
The group has also threatened with physical elimination of the representatives of the current Ukrainian authorities accusing them of failing to have imposed a martial law in the country and who are to be blame for the voluntary surrender of the Ukrainian territories to the “enemy” and for corruption.
The UPA, which has been banned in Russia, says those guilty of the “anti-Ukrainian and anti-popular activity” have 72 hours to leave Ukraine. The letter says these political murders were a warning to the anti-popular regime of oligarchs.

Investments in Crimean economy over past days exceed those of past ten years — official

Investments in Crimea in the past ten years barely reached $10 million whereas contracts for a sum twice as much have been inked in the past several days, chairman of Crimea’s State Council [legislature] Vladimir Konstantinov said on Friday at the Yalta international economic forum.
“the nature of the investor has changed.” Interest to Crimea is being demonstrated by businessmen from Russia and countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) who are attracted by Crimea’s growing consumer market. According to Konstantinov, the basic investment package in Crimea would be formed within the next three years. “Don’t miss your chance,” he said

Hail to the Chief

Republicans haven’t just rejected President Obama. They have adopted Benjamin Netanyahu as their leader.

Last month, at the unilateral invitation of Republicans, and against the will of a Democratic president, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress. He argued for a foreign policy that matched the views of congressional Republicans, not the views of the U.S. administration. Many people, including me, were taken aback by this overt alliance between the U.S. opposition party and the prime minister of another country. But a Bloomberg Politics poll released this week shows that the alliance is deeply rooted. Republicans haven’t just rejected Obama. They have adopted Netanyahu as their leader.

Heirs to Holocaust victims sue France’s railway in Chicago federal court

A federal lawsuit by a suburban Chicago descendant of Holocaust victims alleged the French national railway confiscated property and belongings from tens of thousands of Jews and other “undesirables” sent to Nazi concentration camps from France.

The proposed class-action suit, filed on International Holocaust Remembrance Day in federal court in Chicago, seeks compensation for the cash, silver, gold, jewelry, works of art, musical instruments and clothing taken from the victims as well as the earnings from the sale of their property.

The suit also seeks restitution from the railroad for the third-class train fares it billed the Nazis. But victims instead were stuffed into cattle cars for the journey to the concentration camps, according to the suit.

Avigdor Lieberman, the foreign minister, said if the European Union wanted to differentiate products made in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, it should just stick a yellow star on the products, a pointed reference to the stars Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe were forced to wear.

The Epic Fail of Wikileaks and Assange

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor VT

With Russia Today’s article covering Julian Assange’s recent interview with an Argentinian journalist, a rambling and incoherent diatribe clearly demonstrating how far Assange and Wikileaks has fallen, VT has decided to air some our Assange/Wikileaks dirty laundry.

The video above is featured because the Bush/Netanyahu/Assange/Wikileaks nexus is intimately tied, if you will excuse the pun, to the sex scandals that have plagued both Washington and London since the Bush family gained resurgence after the banning of Prescott Bush in 1943 for his business partnership with Adolf Hitler.

The New World Disorder – They Knew Exactly What They Were Doing

Three decades ago, with the end of the Cold War and the dismantling of the South American dictatorships, many hoped that the much talked about ‘peace dividend’ promised by Bush senior and Thatcher would actually materialise. No such luck. Instead, we have experienced continuous wars, upheavals, intolerance and fundamentalisms of every sort – religious, ethnic and imperial. The exposure of the Western world’s surveillance networks has heightened the feeling that democratic institutions aren’t functioning as they should, that, like it or not, we are living in the twilight period of democracy itself.

Latest ‘ISIS Camp in Mexico’ Story is Completely FAKE

Earlier this week on April 14th, a nameless ‘news story’ appeared on the “Corruption Chronicles Blog” section of the website Judicial Watch, which claimed “ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm.” The website claims that ‘an ISIS base’ exists approximately 8 miles from the US-Texas border in an area known as ‘Anapra’ just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Judicial Watch
(IMAGE: Judicial Watch Blog)

Upon closer inspection, it’s clear that this story is fake.

The following day, even FOX News distanced itself from the story, reporting that US law enforcement agencies denied there was any truth to reports that ISIS militants had set up a training base in Mexico. El Paso-based local news affiliate ABC-7 also contacted multiple federal border agencies. They all said the same thing: the report is unverified, and there is no ISIS in Anapra, or Juarez.

The aerial photo of the “camp” looked fake.

In an interview with the Voice of Russia’s John Robles, Folks says that back in April 2013 as he was watching the events of the Boston Marathon bombings unfold, based on his experience and expertise as a movie producer, he thought that some things just “didn’t add up” and became convinced that the bombings were a false flag designed to instill “the fear factor” in us, “to keep us scared for as long as they can.” The Boston bombing wasn’t real but a “hyper-reality film-making.” It was a “terrorism that never happened.”

But the bid backfired when they subjected him to a 42-minute grilling him over food banks, legal aid cuts and slashing benefits for the most vulnerable.

The flustered PM, sweat glistening at the base of his neck, watched as up to 30 of the 200-strong audience at O2 in Leeds walked out during his appearance, preferring to go back to work than listen to his electioneering.

Congress is Attempting to Reauthorize Key Patriot Act Provisions by Sneaking it Into “USA Freedom Act”

Yet with Section 215’s lifespan now stretching to a matter of weeks, supporters of broad surveillance powers have yet to put forth a bill for their preservation – evidence, opponents believe, that the votes for reauthorization do not exist, particularly not in the House of Representatives.

More likely, according to a multiple Hill sources, is a different option under consideration: making the major NSA reform bill of the last Congress the point of departure for reauthorizing 215 in the current one.

The bill would not abridge NSA collection of Americans’ international communications, nor prevent the NSA or the FBI from warrantlessly searching through its troves of them for Americans’ identifying information. Nor would it restrict a constellation of surveillance efforts authorized by a Reagan-era executive order. Even a recently disclosed bulk domestic phone records collection dragnet by the Drug Enforcement Agency would be untouched.

Saudi Terror-Bombing Massacres Dozens of Yemeni Schoolchildren

Saudi warplanes target US intelligence-designated sites. Civilian men, women and children are considered fair game. They suffer most in all wars.

Tuesday was the latest example. Reports indicate Saudi warplanes struck a populated Ma’rib area. A local source said dozens of defenseless schoolchildren were massacred in cold blood.

The exact number of dead and wounded isn’t known. The source indicated massive Saudi terror-bombing killed dozens.

“And in March 2015, the drones appeared for the first time in the airspace over Ukraine,” he said, adding that the utilization of these unmanned aircraft increased the depth of data gathering on the territory of Russia by 250 kilometers to 300 kilometers.

“Also, up to thirty combat jets, about 300 armored vehicles, and more than 1,500 ground troops and U.S. marines are present on the territories of East-European countries on the rotation basis now,” Gen Kartapolov said.

 

DPR Leader Zakharchenko: 90 Percent Chance of Full-Scale War with Ukraine

So You Want To Get Out Of The USSA — Or EU?

Unfortunately, the USSA and other NATO countries continue to ratchet up the military pressure. USSA regular military forces have now begun to arrive in the Ukraine. Canadian troops are also being sent to the Ukraine. As the Russians watch the foreign military build-up on their border, they may very well decide at some point that enough is enough, and retaliate. If they do the risk of a nuclear war surges dramatically.

This is not an academic question. The USSA and NATO are very openly targeting the Russian government and the Russians recognize that. The USSA and NATO are the aggressors in this conflict, the violent powers behind the neo-fascist regime in the Ukraine that has unleashed a war of aggression against its own Russian-speaking population in the eastern provinces of the Ukraine.

A US-Russia War Over Ukraine?

“Could a U.S. response to Russia’s action in Ukraine provoke a confrontation that leads to a U.S.-Russia War?”

This jolting question is raised by Graham Allison and Dimitri Simes in the cover article of The National Interest.

The answer the authors give, in “Countdown to War: The Coming U.S. Russia Conflict,” is that the odds are shortening on a military collision between the world’s largest nuclear powers.

The cockpit of the conflict, should it come, will be Ukraine.

Former Obama pilot: TWA Flight 800 was not blown up by a faulty fuel tank; it was shot down. I’ll always believe that, and here’s why

Was TWA Flight 800 shot out of the sky?

As a former pilot, that is a question I get asked about all the time.

I’m no conspiracy theorist, but let’s be clear: Yes. I say it was. And I believe the FBI covered it up.

There are many reasons to disbelieve the official explanation of what happened to TWA 800 almost 19 years ago, on July 17, 1996, off the South Shore of Long Island. There’s hardly an airline pilot among the hundreds I know who buys the official explanation — that it was a fuel-tank explosion — offered by the National Transportation Safety Board some four years later.

Lots can go wrong with an airplane. Engines can fail; they can catch fire. Devices can malfunction. Pilots make errors.

But jets do not explode in midair.

Hillary Clinton Is Grooming A Former Goldman Banker To Become America’s Next Treasury Secretary

For years on end, many wondered how it is possible that Gary Gensler allowed Wall Street firms to manipulate, rig, and otherwise abuse the US commodity market which he, as head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 2009 until 2014, was supposed to regulate.

Some, such as this website, suggested that what Gensler was doing was simply protecting his former colleagues from civil or criminal investigation and prosecution. After all Gensler is far better known for not only having worked at Goldman Sachs for 18 years most recently as co-head of finance, prior to joining the CFTC, but for becoming the youngest ever Goldman partner, at the tender age of 30.

 

Paetec aka Windstream Communications Paetec knowingly provides VioP Services to scammers allowing them to harrass and rip off people – they don’t respond to complaints, Internet

Paetec Communications owned now by Windstream Communications provides VoiP phone services. They sell these services to scammers who use their VoiP lines to call consumers in violation of the national do not call list. These scammers attempt to BS consumers out of credit card, bank account, and SSN info. The scammers use a variety of ruses such as a “free alarm sign in your yard and free alarm system”, etc.

While I’ve not been taken in by any of these scammers – my complaint is that Paetec is aware these companies are committing fraud and violations of Federal law and they do not respond to any complaints made to them about the fact their customers are doing this. They are providing the means for theft and they are aware of it and yet they choose to do nothing. Case in point a phone # 718-732-1022 which is owned by Paetec but being used by a bunch of scammers overseas. Paetec has been informed of this and has chosen to take no action.

We have been getting calls from a Paetec number this morning. Nothing but beeping on the other end. We are on the National Do Not Call List but the scammers ignore that. And as usual the US Government cannot be bothered finding actual criminals.

A new civil rights movement emerging in the wake of police shootings

What once had been seen as local law enforcement issues are now national concerns – with every new incident gaining a national spotlight.

The killing of blacks by the police gets the national spotlight while the killing of whites by the police is ignored, even though studies indicate police are 25 times more likely to shoot a white suspect than a black! Someone is trying to morph the issue of police brutality into a racial issue for political gain.

The Hospital Told Him His Son Was Brain Dead, but He Didn’t Believe It. That’s When He Grabbed His Gun and Witnessed a ‘Miracle.’

With a 9mm handgun in his waistband, George Pickering, 59, said he went into his son’s room at Tomball Regional Medical Center’s intensive care unit on Jan. 10 and was informed that the life support keeping him alive could soon be removed. The tragic news set Pickering off. He pulled out his handgun and ordered everyone to get out of the room because, the dad explained to TheBlaze, it was his time to be with his son.

After four tense hours, Pickering surrendered to police peacefully, believing he had done enough to prove that his son should be kept alive. Prior to the incident, he reported being disturbed by hospital staff’s hasty discussions about harvesting his 27-year-old son’s organs. He said he did not have the medical power of attorney over his son.

Later that night, his son woke up.

Tower of Greed

As citizens we simply expect to be treated with dignity and a certain amount of respect. Speaking for myself, is it too much to ask that when I go to a place of business for that business to operate in a manner that is comfortable and that I don’t feel like I am being lied to and my money stolen? Well, if you do business with a bank that is all you can expect to receive; dishonor and theft. If you read the article in full, as I requested, you now know exactly what I am talking about. The ECC (Economic Consultative Committee), fewer than 50, (yes FEWER than 50 people) meet twelve times a year to determine how we, the citizens of the world, are going to be sheered like sheep by the ruling and banking class. Can you imagine if we met, in secret, to plot against the government, the banks and the corporations? Wouldn’t we have a missile or rifle shoved up our back side? Wouldn’t we be thrown in prison, if we were lucky, as an enemy of the state?

6 Arrested at BP Headquarters in Week of Action for Gulf Oil Spill Anniversary

On April 20, 2010 BP’s offshore oil drilling rig Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico exploded, killing 11 workers, causing the largest oil spill ever in U.S. waters and the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. It impacted wildlife and people, caused health problems from exposure to oil and dispersants, and decimated oyster, shellfish and finfish populations and damaged livelihoods and economies in towns dependent on fisheries.

State seizes 11-year-old, arrests his mother after he defends medical marijuana during a school presentation

On March 24, cannabis oil activist Shona Banda‘s life was flipped upside-down after her son was taken from her by the State of Kansas. The ordeal started when police and counselors at her 11-year-old son’s school conducted a drug education class. Her son, who had previously lived in Colorado for a period of time, disagreed with some of the anti-pot points that were being made by school officials. “My son says different things like my ‘Mom calls it cannabis and not marijuana.’ He let them know how educated he was on the facts,” said Banda in an exclusive interview with BenSwann.com. Banda successfully treated her own Crohn’s disease with cannabis oil.

 

As in 1982 in Odessa beat Victoria Nuland

Nuland really visited the USSR in 1982, where she worked on exchange counselor in the pioneer camp “Young guard” in Odessa.
Writer Inna Metelsky-Sheremetyeva: I had a bloody fight with American girl, also a counselor, exchange, amused herself by throwing seeds in the dust and laughing, looking like Ukrainian kids picks it up and eats those dirty, sucked seeds. For fighting, I flew from camp and was reprimanded by the Komsomolskaya line. All my life I remembered the name of that bastard – Viki.
And today I was surprised to read in the biography of Victoria Nuland, in 1982 she worked as a counselor in the Young guard and kept about the Soviet Union a very negative impression…

What’s worse, the collapse of sea life in the Pacific Ocean isn’t something that will affect us several decades into the future. The implications are being seen right now, as evidenced by an emergency closure of fisheries along the West coast this week.

France wants to fight terrorism by spying on everyone – Prime minister says proposed surveillance law ‘is not a French Patriot Act,’ but civil liberties groups say it goes too far

French lawmakers have spent the past four days debating a controversial anti-terrorism bill that, if passed, would dramatically expand the government’s surveillance powers. The law’s backers describe it as a necessary measure to thwart terrorist attacks, and it has strong support on both sides of the aisle. But the bill has drawn sharp criticism from French internet companies over fears that it could harm business, and from privacy advocates who say it would severely curtail civil liberties.

Billionaire Tells Americans to Prepare For ‘Financial Ruin’

The United States could soon become a large-scale Spain or Greece, teetering on the edge of financial ruin.

That’s according to Donald Trump, who painted a very ugly picture of where this country is headed. Trump made the comments during a recent appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

According to Trump, the United States is no longer a rich country. “When you’re not rich, you have to go out and borrow money. We’re borrowing from the Chinese and others. We’re up to $16 trillion in debt.”

He goes on to point out that the downgrade of U.S. debt is inevitable.

– In service with Greece’s worth of Russian weapons, including the famous s-300…
– Yes, except that there is still a system of “Thor” (tactical anti-aircraft missile complex “Kornet” anti-tank missile system) and many other systems. They will emphasize integrated into the NATO system. So, of course, we can’t end the relationship with Russia.
It is widely known that we have with Cyprus General system security, and their defensive system is one hundred percent from Russia, therefore, to suspend relations with Russia in this area, we will cease to defend and Cyprus, and it is crucial for Greece.

Ukraine a Vector for GMO Poison’s Spread Through EU

When the Washington Post chooses to pen an insulting, condescending editorial targeting entire nations speaking up against Western impropriety, one can just as well assume the precise opposite of whatever narrative the Post is trying to push forward is true.

Regarding American biotech companies and their attempts to infest the planet with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and in particular their attempts to corrupt the whole of Europe with their unwanted poison through a backdoor (Ukraine), has prompted Russia to speak up for their Eastern European neighbor. Up until the armed coup in 2013-2014, also known as the “Euromaidan,” Ukraine had adamantly rejected GMOs.

With an obedient client regime now installed in Kiev, a series of political, economic and military decisions have been made that have more or less extinguished Ukraine as a sovereign nation state…

Moscow slams Kiev’s accusations of OSCE observers

International observers monitoring the ceasefire in Ukraine have drawn renewed harsh criticism from Ukrainian officials, their attacks condemned by Russia’s deputy representative to European security watchdog OSCE on Friday as “slanderous and vilifying”.
“Slanderous rumours are being spread in Ukraine vilifying observers as ‘foreign spies’,” Andrey Rudenko, Moscow’s deputy permanent representative at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, told the OSCE permanent council in Vienna, according to comments cited by Russia’s Foreign Ministry.
“Media publications are not only tarnishing the image of the SMM [the OSCE special monitoring mission to Ukraine], but they are also threatening the safety of the observers,” Rudenko said.
“Such statements are inadmissible,” Rudenko went on. “We have to remind the Ukrainian side that under a memorandum of understanding with the OSCE, it [the Ukrainian government] is fully responsible for the observers’ safety.”

Oil Bust Empties Out Private-Jet Parking Lot in Texas

The oil boom last year was easy to see at the airport in Midland, Texas, the gateway to the biggest crude-producing region in the U.S. The 30 or so spaces for private planes were often filled.

On one day in early February, a lone corporate jet sat on the tarmac, the empty spots a harbinger of the slowdown looming in a city that is 85 percent dependent on the oil and gas industry.

This slump would explain why Walmart closed their stores in Midland and Tulsa for “plumbing problems.”

Uncle Sam Wants Your Keys, Says ‘Trust Me’

For months, federal law enforcement agencies and industry have been deadlocked on a highly contentious issue: Should tech companies be obliged to guarantee government access to encrypted data on smartphones and other digital devices, and is that even possible without compromising the security of law-abiding customers?

Recently, the head of the National Security Agency provided a rare hint of what some U.S. officials think might be a technical solution. Why not, suggested Adm. Michael S. Rogers, require technology companies to create a digital key that could open any smartphone or other locked device to obtain text messages or photos, but divide the key into pieces so that no one person or agency alone could decide to use it?

This is a revival of the Clipper chip suggested in 1993. The intention was for all US citizens to be forced to use this form of encryption, which allowed the government to have the encryption keys in an “escrow” system. The public were told that the keys would be split into two halves, and two different agencies would hold the halves, requiring a long process to retrieve the key halves in the event of a legitimate investigation. What the public was not told was that the NSA only needed one half of the key, and could derive the other half using their already vast array of computers. Then, in 1994, Matt Blaze published a paper exposing the fact that the clipper chip included in all messages a packet identified as LEAF, which stood for “Law Enforcement Access Field.” Like the DES “work reduction packet”, LEAF contained the encryption key used to encode the message, to make the message readable by the government. As a result of these exposures, the public rejected Clipper, and by 1996 the government stopped trying to force it on the public.

 

If Virginia Elections Weren’t Hacked, It’s Only Because No One Tried

Yes, it’s true that almost any system will have security vulnerabilities, but he’s ridiculously, laughably wrong, in suggesting that these machines are likely secure enough. These machines don’t require a sophisticated hacker (especially now that the VITA revealed all the necessary passwords). Basically anyone can change the votes however they want based on the information that has been revealed.

For years, whenever we’d point to concerns and problems with e-voting machines, people would argue that it was just conspiracy theories and that these machines were mostly “secure enough.” Yet, time and time again, we’ve discovered that the machines weren’t even the tiniest bit secure — and this is just the most egregious example so far.

One thousand Ukrainians flee persecution for political motives to Donetsk

The number of people fleeing persecution in Ukraine for political motives to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has reached 1,000, DPR People’s Council speaker Andrey Purgin said on Friday.
“There are 1,000 Ukrainian political refugees in our republic now,” the Donetsk News Agency quoted Purgin as saying. “The republic is ready to accept people persecuted for political motives,” he added.
Several political refugees got to DPR from Ukraine as a result of prisoner exchanges held earlier, Purgin noted.
“Among prisoners held on the territory of Ukraine were not self-defense forces, but rather those detained for an opinion that differs from the Kiev’s official position,” he added. “Many people don’t have any documents, they are wanted on the territory of Ukraine. There are many people from Odessa and Kharkiv among political refugees,” the speaker stressed.
Purgin also noted that 200 people were recently detained in Kharkov for “dissent.”

Ukraine Blocks 10,000 Websites, Confiscates a Newspaper

As I reported yesterday, the Security Bureau of Ukraine, on April 7th, had seized and disappeared two Odessa bloggers, who were trying to get an independent investigation, and ultimate prosecution, of the individuals who participated in the 2 May 2014 massacre of regime opponents, and who burned, shot, and clubbed to death perhaps over 200 in the Odessa Trade Unions Building – the event that precipitated the breakaway of Donbass from the rest of the former Ukraine, the country’s civil war.

And I also reported that April 7th saw the official announcement that, “The security service of Ukraine … has discontinued operation of a number of Internet sites that were used to perpetrate information campaigns of aggression on the part of the Russian Federation aimed at violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order and territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine.”

 

Russian decision to build national space station to have impact on space exploration

Russia’s decision to build its own space station will also have an impact on the international space exploration cooperation, President of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) Roberto Battiston said on Friday.
The Russians have created a very powerful and complex space exploration system. This sphere is under efficient, including political control, and Russia has all the needed technology to build its station, Battiston said, commenting on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement during his Thursday’s TV call-in session regarding the intention to build a space station by 2023.
According to the ASI head, for the United States space exploration will be shifting to the private business sphere, and the Americans do not intend to build an orbital station, but perform flights to asteroids and to the Moon.

Nuclear waste: Bury nuclear waste down a very deep hole, say scientists

Scientists at the University of Sheffield calculate that all of the UK’s high level nuclear waste from spent fuel reprocessing could be disposed of in just six boreholes 5km deep, fitting within a site no larger than a football pitch.

The concept — called deep borehole disposal — has been developed primarily in the UK but is likely to see its first field trials in the USA next year. If the trials are successful, the USA hopes to dispose of its ‘hottest’ and most radioactive waste — left over from plutonium production and currently stored at Hanford in Washington State — in a deep borehole.

The problem, as we have discovered with fracking, is that toxic and radioactive materials do not stay at the bottom of those holes!

Here’s your rifle, Stephen. Here’s your parachute. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane, and we’ll call Putin and tell him you are on your way to kick his butt all by yourself! The rest of us, however, are tired of war and tired of the lies we are told to trick us into war, so you will understand if we sit this one out and keep our kids safe at home. Have fun.

North Korea dismisses the United States plans to deploy the THAAD missile defense system in South Korea as a dangerous military provocation, a spokesman for Pyongyang’s National Peace Committee said on Friday.
In case of the deployment of THAAD, which is a key element of the US anti-ballistic missile defense, “South Korea will turn into an American nuclear arsenal aimed at carrying out a preventive strike at any time on the territory of North Korea and a number of other countries of the Northeast Asia,” according to the organization.
This step “should be considered as a dangerous military provocation that can cause a nuclear catastrophe,” the statement stresses.
In response to the THAAD deployment, North Korea “will strengthen its nuclear deterrence forces,” the statement reads.

As U.S. Secretary of State during the conflict between Russia and Georgia, Clinton claimed that the U.S. was committed to “Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” and that the “United States does not recognize spheres of influence.”

In the meantime she was pushing for the military integration of countries from the former Soviet Union with NATO. Rick Rozoff commented at the time: “Despite Clinton’s claim to the contrary, the United States most decidedly recognizes spheres of influence. In its own hemisphere – the entirety of it – in the South Caucasus and everywhere else on the planet.”

Also in the double standard category, Washington is applying sanctions on Iran for its non existent nuclear weapons, even though the Pentagon has “officially” recognized that Israel is a nuclear power.

 

Russia will insist on creating nuclear weapon free zone in Middle East at NPT Conference

Russia will insist on establishing a nuclear weapon free zone in the Middle East at the NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty) Review Conference in New York, head of the Department for non-proliferation and weapons control at the Russian Foreign Ministry Mikhail Ulyanov said on Friday.
“These are sensible issues for everyone, including Israel, because then Israel’s nuclear potential will be in the center of attention,” Ulyanov said.
Ulyanov called the atmosphere ahead of the NPT Review Conference unhealthy, saying there are considerable imbalances.
“The atmosphere there is unhealthy, there are complaints about the implementation of the Treaty [NPT],” he said.

 

EXCLUSIVE: Saudi Major General Killed in Yemen

Major General Fahd bin Turki bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, a senior commander of the General Staff of Saudi Arabia’s Armed Forces, was killed during a mission in Northwestern Yemen, sources disclosed on Tuesday.

The Saudi major general was killed, while he was on a mission in Al Majda village in Quatabir district of the Sadah governorate in Northwestern Yemen on Saturday, a member of his entourage during the visit to Majda, who asked to remain unnamed, told an FNA correspondent in Riyadh on Tuesday.

The source added that two other senior officers accompanying General Fahd were also killed during the attack.

According to the source, Saudi princes have been visiting General Turki bin Abdulaziz’s palace since Sunday to express their condolences to his bereaved family.

The slain General was the grandson of King bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

 

The U.S. Discovery of Israel’s Secret Nuclear Project

This “discovery,” which came as the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower was drawing to a close, caused apprehension in Washington by raising concern about regional stability and nuclear proliferation, but it also produced annoyance because Israeli officials at all levels repeatedly provided less than credible answers to U.S. questions about Dimona.

Op-Ed: Attack Now – Russian Interference Leaves Israel No Choice

The Obama Doctrine – scorn your friends, reward your enemies – has finally reaped the whirlwind, namely Russia and its pledge to provide Iran with an array of the most advanced “defensive” missiles on earth. This leaves Israel with no choice except to act BEFORE those missiles are deployed.

Israel must attack to remove those nukes before it’s too late.

If it was difficult to successfully strike Iran’s nuclear facilities today, tomorrow will be near impossible.

I was worried that Russia’s sending defensive missiles to Iran might provoke this reaction.

I would like to remind everyone of three important facts before a lot of people die in yet another war.

  1. Israel was at the forefront of screaming that Iraq had nuclear weapons, and bombed Iraq’s nuclear power station at Osirak under the claim that it concealed a clandestine bomb factory similar to the one Israel maintains under Dimona. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq (again supported by Israeli claims of nuclear weapons) experts examined the ruins of Osirak and found no evidence of a weapons facility, nor has any evidence to support Israel and the US’ claim that Iraq had nuclear weapons ever been found. Israel has a very poor record of accuracy in knowing who does or does not have nuclear weapons, other than their own.
  2. Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another country in over 200 years, standing in sharp contrast with Israel, which these days cannot seem to go six months without attacking one of their neighbors.
  3. Iran has signed and ratified the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, So has the United States. Everything Iran is doing with nuclear power is allowed to them under that treaty. Recently declassified US documents support the conclusions from earlier documents released by South Africa, and Mordechai Vanunu’s photos of the Dimona weapons factory. Israel does have nuclear weapons, has had them since the 1970s, including hydrogen bombs. Israel refuses to sign the NNPT or allow IAEA inspections. IN short, Iran is playing by the rules. Israel is not.

Iran is not going to attack Israel. The result would be Iran melted down into a giant glowing slab of green glass. What the Russian missiles do is make it impossible for Israel to bully Iran, or attack it to remove an economic rival, as Netanyahu himself admitted to only last week.

Hologram Protests In Spain Are Demonstrators’ Way Of Speaking Up, Despite Government Ban

A new group of “citizen safety laws” that will ban protests in front of government buildings in Spain has outraged citizens across the country. After the laws were passed by the governing Popular Party in December, there were protests in 30 cities, according to the The Daily Mail. But activist group No Somos Delito, which means “We Are Not a Crime,” came up with a strategy that mocks the absurdity of the laws: The group is using holographic projections of thousands of protesters in Spain to show the government that these “gag laws” won’t actually silence them.

Government, Military, & Business Use Humans as Guinea Pigs

Below is a list depicting the rampant use of humans as guinea pigs in government, military, and medical experiments over the last century. Links to reliable sources are provided to confirm the information on each item presented. There are still today officials in the government, military, and even business leaders who sadly feel no need to inform us when we are used in potentially hazardous experiments.

Note that some of these experiments specifically targeted minorities and those in poor areas. Thankfully, this kind of unethical experimentation is rare now, but it continues in hidden pockets around the globe. And large-scale experimentation with risky technologies like genetically modified foods, nuclear power, and nanotechnology used in consumer goods is still rarely questioned in the media or government.

Netanyahu slips, Reveals reason for Opposition to Iran Deal

US television news isn’t very good and it has clearly gotten worse over the past 20 years. In the aftermath of the Kerry-Zarif initial framework deal on nuclear energy in Iran, it seems obvious that an interview with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif would be newsworthy. But to my knowledge none of the networks or major cable news shows had him on … Instead, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was given repeated access to millions of Americans to talk trash about the deal over the weekend and to make mostly false allegations about its contours … Netanyahu has showed his hand. He wants to use the USA and the Treasury Department to sanction Iran into penury, to keep its middle classes small and shrinking and to cut people’s income, education and health care.

 

Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Secrets

In early February, the Pentagon declassified a 386-page report from 1987, exposing for the first time ever the actual depth of top-secret military cooperation between the United States and Israel — including, amazingly, information about Israel’s unacknowledged nuclear program.

In view of the caustic tension that has increased lately between Washington and Jerusalem, the timing of the publication’s declassification, after a long legal process, might raise a few eyebrows. I have some knowledge about the build-up process of Israel’s nuclear capacity and after reading the report in question I must express my astonishment: I have never seen an official American document disclosing such extensive revelation on subjects that until now were regarded by both administrations as unspeakable secrets.

BEX Alert!!! – “Germany’s response to Nazism on trial as man, 93, faces 300,000 charges”

BERLIN — Nearly 70 years after World War II ended in Europe with Nazi Germany’s surrender on May 7, 1945, what’s likely to be the final criminal chapter of that horrific period is about to unfold in a small German town.

Beginning next Tuesday, Oskar Groening, who’s better known as “the accountant of Auschwitz,” goes on trial for what in any other context would seem an impossible crime: 300,000 counts of accessory to murder.

Innocence is not really an issue, though guilt will be: Groening has freely admitted that he stood on the unloading ramps of the most infamous of the Nazi death camps and counted the cash confiscated from the Hungarian Jews who spilled out of the box cars, headed for selection. What the court will decide is whether that made him an accessory to their murders in Auschwitz’s gas chambers.

Three Prominent Poroshenko Critics Killed in Kiev in Three Days

As the political situation in Ukraine destabilizes, the suspicious killings of prominent opposition supporters continue to transpire.
A prominent Ukrainian journalist, known for his critical views of Poroshenko’s government was shot dead in Kiev on Thursday, in the latest series of suspicious deaths of opposition supporters.

Oles Buzina, 45, a supporter of ex-president Viktor Yanukovych, was shot in the street. Buzina’s body was found on the ground nearing his apartment building close to the city center. The head of Kiev’s police department Alexander Tereschuk said that a TT gun was allegedly used in the crime.
According to the neighbors, the journalist was probably shot while jogging. He was found wearing a sports outfit. The 45- year-old was shot by two men in masks who disappeared from the crime scene in a Ford Focus car with either Latvian or Belarusian number plate.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board to conceal its power. But the truth is, the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the government of the United States. It controls everything here; and it controls our foreign relations. It makes or breaks governments at will. No man, and no body of men, is more entrenched in power than the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. These evildoers have robbed this country of more than enough money to pay the national debt. … Faithless government officers who have violated their oaths of office should be impeached and brought to trial.” — Congressman Louis T. McFadden before the House of Representatives, in the midst of the Great Depression, 1932

After Rescuing Ukraine, US Taxpayers To Bail Out Iraq Next

Having generously (if not obliviously) stepped up to the plate to bail out Ukraine (with open-ended bond guarantees), US taxpayers are opening their wallets again – this time for Iraq. As Reuters reports, cheap oil has ravage Iraq’s state finances just as the government faces rising military spending from the war it is waging against ISIS; and so it has decided to issue $5 billion in international bonds. However, Iraq is considering other ways to cover its budget deficit, including asking the IMF (i.e. US taxpayers) for relief funding and also requesting the controversial U.S. Export-Import Bank (US Taxpayers) finance the purchase of 10 planes from Boeing Co, which cost the government $500 million.

Oh you American taxpayers; you are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO generous!

Fighting the Battle Against Mainstream Media Disinformation is Fighting Against War

The US has been waging war with its allies in Syria and Iraq for a while now. Yemen has also become a battle field, where war for democracy is being waged by… monarchies. Mahdi Nazemroaya highlights the irony of the situation:

“The House of Saud and a military coalition that consists mostly of anachronistic monarchies are claiming to bomb Yemen as a means of saving the Yemenite people and their transition to democracy. The irony should not be lost on observers that recognize that the Saudi-led coalition — consisting of the Kingdom of Morocco, UAE, Kuwait, Kingdom of Bahrain, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Qatar, Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia itself — is comprised of an unhealthy mixture of backward family dictatorships and corrupt governments that essentially are the antithesis of democracy.” (The War on Yemen: Where Oil and Geopolitics Mix)

Beyond Blackwater Massacre, Renewed Concern Over Rise of Mercenary Armies

Following the sentencing of four private security guards convicted in the notorious 2007 massacre of innocent Iraqi civilians, attention has shifted to the growing role such private mercenaries are having on battlefields throughout the world.

On Monday, three former employees of Blackwater Worldwide were given thirty-year prison sentences while one guard, Nicholas Slatten, who fired the first shot, was sentenced to life in prison for a shooting spree which resulted in the deaths of 14 Iraqi civilians in Nissour Square. The accused say they will appeal.

In a statement on Tuesday, human rights expert Elzbieta Karska, chair of the United Nations working group on the use of mercenaries, said that while the group welcomed the sentencing, such examples of accountability are the “exception rather than the rule.”

Bankrupt? Greece to Buy Russian Missiles

Just days after Russia lifted sanctions on providing anti-aircraft missiles to Iran, Reuters reports that The Greeks are in talks with Russia to purchase missiles for the S-300 defense system. Greece, a NATO member, has been in possession of the advanced Russian-made systems since the late 1990s and in a defiant show of independence towards Troika, is now negotiating with Russia for the purchase of additional missiles and for their maintenance.

Russia may be giving Greece the additional missiles as foreign aid, to deter Europe from outright invasion or the US from a covert overthrow to keep Greece from defaulting and leaving the EU.

US, Israel OK’d Saudi war on Yemen: Iran defense min.

Iran’s defense minister says the Saudi aggression against Yemen has been authorized by the United States and the Israeli regime, calling for an immediate end to the deadly assaults.

Addressing the Fourth Moscow International Security Conference on Thursday, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Saudi government unleashed deadly air raids against Yemen once it received the green light from the United States and Israel, and was promised military cooperation by some regional states.

He added that not only will the Saudi regime fail to achieve its “illegitimate” purposes in Yemen, but will also suffer a heavy defeat and precipitate its downfall, said Dehqan, adding a fate similar to that of former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, awaits Riyadh’s ruler.

 

S-300 missile system serves defense purposes for Iran: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has defended Moscow’s recent decision to deliver S-300 air defense system to Iran, saying the system is meant for deterrence amid the developments in war-torn Yemen.

He made the remarks during his annual televised question-and-answer session with the nation at Gostiny Dvor (Merchant Yard) exhibition hall in the Russian capital city of Moscow on Thursday.

“This is a defensive weapons system. More than that, considering the situation that is building up in the region, especially regarding the incidents in Yemen, we think that the delivery of this kind of weapon is a preventive factor,” Putin said.

The comments come as Yemen has been the scene of deadly aerial assaults by Saudi Arabia since March 26. The attacks have so far killed some 2,600 people, according to Yemeni sources.

As long as I am descending into doing movie reviews today, I feel I should mention “The Imitation Game” because I plan to talk about it on today’s radio show. The film is about the life of Allen Turing, the brilliant mathematician who built the machine which cracked German’s ENIGMA code for the allies, and how he was cruelly treated by UK law for being a homosexual afterwards, driving him to suicide at the age of 41. Benedict Cumberpatch does a great job of portraying Turing, even down to the recognizable traces of Asperger’s Syndrome which many have concluded Turing suffered from. Worth a watch.

 

BIG EYES MOVIE

A drama about the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

Claire and I watched this film last night. To be very honest, I had been unaware of how Marget was the real artist behind the big eyes phenomenon when I was young, even though the case was finally resolved here in Hawaii. Being an ardent supporter of my own wife’s creative endeavors I actually got angry with the character of the husband and how he could do what he did, as well as why it took so long for Margaret to stand up for herself.

But what is really notable about the film is that Tim Burton, whose prior work tended to be out on the fringe with “Edward Scissorhands”, “Dark Shadows”, etc. did a great job in telling this straight drama. There were only a few moments when Tim Burton went back to his “safe zone” in terms of style.

How Israel Hid Its Secret Nuclear Weapons Program

A little anecdote about an occurrence sometime in September 1960 sheds light on the development of U.S. perceptions that Israel was being less than honest about Dimona. That month, Addy Cohen, then the young director of the Foreign Aid Office at the Israeli Finance Ministry, hosted U.S. ambassador to Israel Ogden Reid and some of his senior staff for a tour of the Dead Sea Works—a large Israeli potash plant in Sdom, on the Dead Sea coast of Israel. The Israeli Air Force provided a Sikorsky S-58 helicopter to fly the American group from Tel Aviv to Sdom. As they were returning on the helicopter, near the new town of Dimona, Reid pointed to a huge industrial site under heavy construction and asked what it was.
Note: It wasn’t hidden at all the whole world knew it!!

Mother of Boston Bomber Breaks Silence: ‘It was all fabricated by the CIA’

From their homes in Chechnya and Dagestan, two predominantly Muslim regions of Russia, some of his family members have tried to convince Tsarnaev to fire his court-appointed lawyer, Judy Clarke, who has taken a surprising approach to his defense.

In one of her first arguments before the jury after entering a not-guilty plea, Clarke said that her client is indeed responsible for the “senseless, horrific, misguided acts.” But in committing these crimes, she argued that he was acting under the direction of his older brother Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with authorities soon after the bombing.

This line of defense has outraged many of Tsarnaev’s relatives, who have tried to convince him to dismiss Clarke and ask for a lawyer who will argue his innocence. “Why do we even need defense attorneys if they just tell the jury he is guilty?” his aunt asks. “What’s the point?”

Judy Clarke is the government’s go-to gal to make sure the patsies get buried and the official story remains unchallenged. But even I, not an attorney, could have gotten Tsarnaev acquitted.

Then, they said, Burge would place a plastic bag over the suspect’s head. Finally, he would crank his little black box and listen to the screams of pain as electricity coursed through the suspect’s body.

Minnesota Senate Reaffirms Ban on Eye Contact

The Minnesota Senate, perhaps trying to make its chambers more like a first grade classroom, this week reaffirmed a rule that forbids lawmakers from looking at one another, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

That’s right. Lawmakers, presumably elected to office by constituents, voted to reaffirm a rule that demands “Eyes up front.”

‘No end to sanctions, no agreement’: Iran sticks to nuclear deal demands

There’ll be no deal on Tehran’s nuclear program without the simultaneous lifting of all sanctions against Iran, President Hassan Rouhani stressed, echoing an earlier statement by Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“If there is no end to sanctions, there will not be an agreement,” Rouhani said in a televised speech in the northern Iranian city of Rasht. “The end of these negotiations and a signed deal must include a declaration of cancelling the oppressive sanctions on the great nation of Iran.”

Netanyahu and his Congressional lackeys have in effect “moved the goal posts” for the Iran deal, mandating a 56 day delay while Congress considers (they kills) the lifting of sanctions. The intention is obvious; to kill any chance of a deal with Iran and open the door to war.

US Government Planting Malicious Software On Your Phone, So It Can Bypass Encryption and “See What You’re Doing”

The Kremlin and the Neocons

While Clark’s public exposé largely escaped attention in the neocon-friendly “mainstream media” (surprise, surprise!), he recounted being told by a senior general at the Pentagon shortly after the 9/11 attacks in 2001 about the Donald Rumsfeld/Paul Wolfowitz-led plan for “regime change” in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.

This was startling enough, I grant you, since officially the United States presents itself as a nation that respects international law, frowns upon other powerful nations overthrowing the governments of weaker states, and – in the aftermath of World War II – condemned past aggressions by Nazi Germany and decried Soviet “subversion” of pro-U.S. nations.

But what caught my eye this time was the significance of Clark’s depiction of Wolfowitz in 1992 gloating over what he judged to be a major lesson learned from the Desert Storm attack on Iraq in 1991; namely, “the Soviets won’t stop us.”

I-Team: Walmart stores that were suddenly closed for plumbing issues haven’t sought permits

Employees of a Walmart in Brandon that abruptly closed Monday were among more than 2,000 employees nationwide who learned almost simultaneously they were being laid off.

I think Walmart is trying to save face having to close stores so soon after they made a bid deal about raising the wages of their workers.

 

The Only Two Tools in the US Tool Bag: Bombs and Starvation

The US has become the bully on the block and seemingly has only two weapons to use in forcing people to accept our will: one is bombs and the other is harsh economic sanctions. Economic sanctions can easily prove worse than bombs, because they do not discriminate and target the innocent. For over 50 years we imposed harsh economic sanctions on the people of Cuba, and for 50 years the “people” of Cuba were deprived of necessities and suffered. We recently relented, but repeatedly during the 50-year sanction period, the rest of the world begged us, and overwhelmingly voted in the UN every year, to have the US remove its sanctions. We ignored the world’s pleas, and for 50 years defied the entire world in punishing the people of Cuba.

Citigroup Shuffles Management Ranks: Is a Guilty Plea Coming?

Media rumors have been rife since February that the U.S. Justice Department is edging closer to forcing a Citigroup banking unit to plead guilty to criminal charges of rigging foreign currency markets. On Monday, the umpteenth iteration of the infamous Citigroup Shuffle was announced, where the top ranks of management are shuffled about in preparation for charges of major wrongdoing by the bank.

The Citigroup Shuffle has produced four CEOs over the past 12 years (Sanford Weill, Chuck Prince, Vikram Pandit, and the current CEO, Michael Corbat). The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) position changed three times in four months during 2009, moving from Gary Crittenden, to Edward “Ned” Kelly, to John Gerspach, the current CFO. Crittenden was later charged by the SEC with lying about Citigroup’s exposure to subprime debt, stating publicly that it was $13 billion when in fact it was over $50 billion at the time. Crittenden paid a $100,000 fine to the SEC without admitting the findings.

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

At the height of its power, ancient Rome created many new technologies which allowed it to become the supreme power over their portion of the world. These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

Putin defends Iran missile decision during call-in show

President Vladimir Putin sternly urged the West to respect Russia’s interests in global affairs and defended his move to sanction the delivery of a long-range air defense missile system to Iran during a marathon TV call-in show with the nation Thursday.

Putin scathingly criticized Washington for refusing to see Moscow as an equal partner and warned that Russia-West ties, in shambles over the Ukrainian crisis, could only be normalized when the U.S. and its allies show readiness for compromise.

He also described the killing of top Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov as “tragic and shameful” and commended police for quickly tracking down the perpetrators, but said he wasn’t certain if Russian law-enforcement agencies would be able to track down those who organized it.

Pentagon officials recently told members of Congress that they want to spend $5.5 billion by 2020 on ways to improve the security, presumably both physical and digital, of government satellites, which are primarily defense oriented. The money also will go towards shielding ground stations and computer networks that collect data provided by satellites.

Did Little Moshe Really Die Six Times

On April 27, 1995, the elite of German society, wearing Jewish mourning hats, gathered together in Belsen to mourn, weep and wail. These politically correct elite stood shoulder to shoulder with their Jewish holocaust-comrades in an affected display of unity to the world, whilst the entire world media captured these tender moments for posterity. The act of caring, worthy of a Holowood-Oscar, was to mourn the “mass gassings” in the former Belsen “extermination” camp. However, Belsen had no gas chambers and was far from being an extermination camp. Belsen was a camp for prominent, influential Jews for future exchange. But no matter, this is not important, for the SHOA must go on.

“No, I presume it’s impossible,” Putin said during his annual live question and answer session known as Direct Line with Vladimir Putin, answering a question put by a resident of Russia’s town of Gukovo near the border with Ukraine. “Don’t worry,” he said.
“I think that in conditions of the implementation of the Minsk agreements some elements can be found for restoring some common ground with Ukraine but in the final end, of course, the right to say the decisive word – who, how and with whom wants to live and on what conditions – should belong to people who live in these territories”
“We are not going to revive the empire, we have no such goals – what they constantly attempt to accuse us of”.
“As for now, we don’t want anything from the Kiev authorities except for getting a treatment from them they would give to all the equitable partners in all the areas of collaboration”.

 

Washington’s Mistral fiat flattens French arms industry; Sukhoi flies high

36 of them during his visit to Paris last week, a responsible government source stated. Instead, India will buy 127 fifth generation Russian fighter jets.

It is part of the direct fall-out from the socialist French governments anti-Russian policy, aligned with Washington. Obedient to the US, the Le Drian/Hollande tandem chose not to turn over the Mistral ships to Russia.

“I would like to remind you Alexander III, our emperor, once said that Russia has just two allies, the armed forces and the navy.

Incidentally, there is a certain reason behind that,” Putin said during the Direct Line question-and-answer session televised live on Thursday.
At the moment there are many countries and leaders in the world who support Russia’s efforts in the struggle with international terrorism, organized crime, xenophobia, and other modern challenges, he said.
“I proceed from the assumption that we are not going to have a war with anybody. We will certainly be strengthening our defence precisely for the sake of ensuring nobody develops the wish to be at war with Russia,” Putin said.

Famous Ukrainian journalist shot and killed in Kiev

Well-known Ukrainian journalist and writer Oles Buzina was killed near his home in Kiev at midday on Thursday, ambulance doctors told TASS.
Oles Buzina was a well-known Ukrainian journalist, writer and TV presenter. He is the author of two books, including “Vampire Taras Shevchenko” and “The Union of Plough and Trident”. Buzina used to be the editor-in-chief of the Segodnya newspaper who had to quit his post because of censorship in March this year.
“Oles was a patriot of Ukraine but he also loved Russia. He had his own voice, which was listened and heard by many people. This crime is a politically-motivated classical Bandera-style assassination”.
Buzina took part in Solovyov’s talk shows on the Rossiya 1 TV channel many times. “He was present at my talk show quite recently. I kept offering him to come to work in Moscow. I used to tell him that it was dangerous for him to stay [in Ukraine] but he replied that his home was there,” Solovyov concluded.

 

Series of ‘bizarre suicides’ & murders: Former Ukrainian MP shot dead in Kiev

A former Ukrainian MP and active anti-Maidan activist, Oleg Kalashnikov, has been killed in his flat in Kiev. His killing is the latest in a series of odd deaths plaguing former government officials and ex-President Yanukovich’s party members.

The 52-year-old was found dead at his residence in Kiev on Wednesday evening. His death was “caused by a gunshot,” the Interior Ministry said in a statement announcing a police inquiry. Ukraine’s criminal investigation chief Vasily Paskal, took the investigation under personal control and promised to share motives and the preliminary results of the probe with reporters as soon as they become available.

The investigation is focused on five possible motives for the crime, according to Interior Minister’s senior adviser, Anton Gerashchenko.

Signs That The Elite Are Feverishly Preparing For Something BIG

What in the world are the elite up to?  In recent days, we have learned that the New York Fed is moving a lot of operations to Chicago because of concerns about what a “natural disaster” could do, the federal government is buying 62 million rounds of ammunition commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles for “training” purposes, and NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne Mountain because it is “EMP-hardened”.  In addition, government authorities have scheduled a whole host of unusual “training exercises” all over the nation.  So are the elite doing all of this in order to prepare for something really BIG, or should we just chalk up all of this strange activity to rampant government paranoia?

Virginia election officials have decertified an electronic voting system after determining that it was possible for even unskilled people to surreptitiously hack into it and tamper with vote counts.

The AVS WINVote, made by Advanced Voting Solutions, passed necessary voting systems standards and has been used in Virginia and, until recently, in Pennsylvania and Mississippi. It used the easy-to-crack passwords of “admin,” “abcde,” and “shoup” to lock down its Windows administrator account, Wi-Fi network, and voting results database respectively, according to a scathing security review published Tuesday by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency.

Israelis worried that Holocaust may one day fade from memory

Thursday is Holocaust Remembrance Day here in Israel, and a poll earlier this week suggested fewer than half of Israelis have even met a Holocaust survivor, and that a large majority feel the event is fading into history.

the Civilist Papers

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF…we the voters, Independents, moderate Republicans and moderate Democrats set aside our differences and joined forces to write a list of REFORMS, based on PRINCIPLES of DEMOCRACY? Principles that Congress has corrupted or neglected to the peril of our republic. What if voters ignore party lines and only elect those Congressional candidates who endorse our reforms??

The Civilist Papers are those REFORMS! We have a specific agenda and a real strategy to implement changes which will make Congress responsive to the PEOPLE, instead of special interests.

What do we want from you? First, learn about Civilism. (left sidebar) Second, we invite you to Join the Civilist Movement, (right sidebar) which only means you allow us to send you emails about recruiting candidates to Civilism in your state, electing them to Congress, and sheparding our reforms through the legislative process with timely emails and phone calls to the right people in massive amounts.

U.S. Cuts Nuclear Warhead Levels

Despite nuclear saber-rattling by Moscow, U.S. nuclear forces are close to reaching warhead, missile, and bomber numerical cuts required under the 2010 New START arms treaty, a senior Pentagon official told Congress on Wednesday.

U.S. nuclear warheads counted under the treaty with Russia were reduced from 1,642 to 1,597 between Sept. 1 and March 1, said Robert Scher, assistant secretary of defense for strategy, plans, and capabilities.

Russian nuclear warheads were cut from 1,632 to 1,582 during the same period, Scher told the House Armed Services strategic forces subcommittee in prepared testimony.

The treaty requires both nations to reduce their deployed strategic warhead arsenals to 1,550 by February 2018.

 

European Parliament members demand “pressure” on Israel to free Palestinian lawmakers

Fifty-eight members of the European Parliament have called on the EU to put “pressure” on Israel to release Khalida Jarrar and other members of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) from its prisons.

Jarrar was today indicted by Israel’s military court while another prominent Palestinian detainee, former hunger striker Khader Adnan, has reportedly been placed in punitive solitary confinement.

 

Loyola University Chicago students pass divestment for third time

Last month, for the third time in two years, the student senate at Loyola University in Chicago passed a divestment resolution. The resolution, authored by Loyola Divest, a coalition of student groups and activists, calls on the university to pull its investments in four corporations that profit from the violations of Palestinians’ rights: Caterpillar, United Technologies, Raytheon and Valero.

FLASHBACK – WACO – Who Shot First?

These two photos, one from a video tape, the other from a film camera, show the first moments of the BATF raid at the Mt. Carmel church. Note the bullet holes in the walls of the church. None of the glass in any of the vehicles the BATF are hiding behind show any signs of being cracked or broken.

FLASHBACK – The Oklahoma City Bombing – Were there additional explosive charges and additional bombers?

There are many problems with the official story of the bombing. Let’s start with McVeigh’s whereabouts on April 17.
McVeigh had been filmed by a security camera at a nearby McDonald’s 24 minutes before the time stamped on the truck rental agreement, wearing clothes that did not match either of the men seen at Elliott’s.

There is no plausible explanation of how he traveled the mile and a quarter from McDonald’s to the rental agency, carless and alone as he claims, without getting soaked in the rain.

The three people interviewed agreed John Does 1 and 2 were dry. According to Stephen Jones, who has seen the interview transcripts, it took 44 days for the FBI to convince the car rental agency owner that John Doe 1 was Timothy McVeigh. And in the end they did not dare put him on the witness stand, for fear of what might happen under cross-examination.

 

Rivlin: Israel is not compensation for the Holocaust

The Holocaust was a seminal event in the history of the Jewish people, but it was not the beginning of its story and “there is no greater mistake” than thinking that “the State of Israel is some sort of compensation” for it, President Reuven Rivlin declared on Wednesday evening.

Obama: Iranian Troops in Iraq ‘Must Answer to Baghdad’

In comments that appeared both unnecessary and ridiculously hypocritical, President Obama today declared his belief that Iranian troops, and indeed all foreign fighters involved in the ISIS war in Iraq, should be under the direct control of Iraqi PM Hayder Abadi.

‘End ECB dick-tatorship!’ Protester attacks Draghi during keynote speech

A protester, associated with the FEMEN movement, interrupted a televised speech by European Central Bank president Mario Draghi, when she jumped onto the table and showered him with confetti, while shouting “End ECB dictatorship!”

21-year-old Josephine Witt, who was also wearing a t-shirt with the punning slogan “End ECB dick-tatorship” also left several fliers with a oblique small-print rant against the financial body which regulates the Eurozone monetary policy.

German Yields Tumble Toward Zero Amid ECB Stimulus, Greece Jitters

“Draghi pledged to continue to metaphorically stand on the roof of the ECB building and shower euro bank notes down upon passersby.”

As Drought Stricken Californians Cut Back, Corporations Get a Pass

Now that California’s drought has entered its fourth year, Governor Jerry Brown is finally cracking down on state municipalities, and is trying to get them cut back at least 25% of their water usage. With the threat of water shortages looming, many residents are quick to point fingers at California’s agricultural industry. What with almond growers sucking up 1.1 trillion gallons of water a year, and the beef industry using 106 gallons of water for every ounce of meat, it looks like many Californians are ready to throw both small farmers and Big Ag under the bus.

However, this state’s water problems aren’t just relegated to agriculture. It’s now become common knowledge that for decades, California has allowed beverage companies to bottle public water with little oversight. What most people are just now learning is that, to extract this water from public land requires a permit, and water bottle companies like Arrowhead have had their permits expired since 1988…

Ron Paul: Watch out. Dollar’s in a ‘huge bubble’

“There’s a huge bubble with the dollar,” Paul said on Tuesday’s “Futures Now.” The Dollar index, which measures the dollar against a basket of other major currencies, is near 12-year highs as the Fed has retreated from its stimulative programs at just the same time that other central banks have introduced their easing measures. But rather than take the rally as a sign that investors see strength in the U.S. economy, the outspoken former congressman sees the dollar’s massive move higher as simply a byproduct of a world awash in easy money.

“It’s not so much that the dollar is a great currency. It’s the fact that nothing else is any better, said Paul. “The fundamentals are a disaster. The economy is in bad shape when you have more than half the people hardly making ends meet.”

“I have sworn on the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” — Thomas Jefferson

Debunking the “The Saudis did 9-11″ nonsense!

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was still alive after 9-11 and sued the US Government for defaming him.

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don’t need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Reposted in response to the renewed push to blame the Saudis for 9-11.

Man taken into custody after landing aircraft on Capitol grounds

A reporter from the Tampa Bay Times reports the pilot was a Florida area postal worker seeking to protest campaign finance reform. The paper is reporting it called Secret Service and Capitol Hill police before he flew. The reporter who spoke before the flight has been tweeting from Washington as the postal worker landed.

The Capitol Police, however, have not disclosed his identity. They did say he is in custody for questioning and they’re seeking to find out whether the landing was due to a mechanical issue or some other issue.

This is the big story on the corporate media and the DC police have their bomb disposal robot examining the gyrocopter for bombs, which is silly when you recall the sparse open framework of their construction which has no enclosed spaces where a bomb could hide.

The Ascent of Hillary, the $.2.5 Billion “People’s” Candidate

Hillary Clinton just announced that she’s running for president. However, this commentary is not really about her. It’s about a nation of more than 300 million people in which politics has become the sole property and domain of the rich. The rich decided some time ago that Hillary Clinton would be the virtually unchallenged presidential candidate of the Democratic Party. The 48 percent of Americans that express an affinity with the Democratic Party have not yet chosen Clinton. There has been no primary election in any state. But, that does not matter because the selection process that counts occurs in the boardrooms and mansions and private clubs and getaways of the rich. Hillary Clinton and her husband, Bill, have spent virtually their entire adult lives on the millionaires’ campaign circuit, the rich man’s primary. In the process of pleasing the rich, they have become rich, themselves.

Russia bashers eat crow as Putin wins Time Magazine poll

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Western media did their best to hide Putin’s stratospheric popularity in their assigned propaganda task of demonizing Russia and Putin over the Ukrainian Western coup , replacing the Iran nuclear weapons threat hoax with the new Russian Bear threat one.

The biggest threat to our national security comes from treasonous cliques within our own ranks and their recent marriage over that last decade into the international corporate crime syndicates.

We are not really biased here at VT. It is just a simple observation to us… it is Putin and Lavrov all the way. No one can touch them and they own this piece of history, something that the spinmeisters cannot lay a glove on.

 

TIME Magazine Invaded by Kremlin Troll Army

Western media campaign to demonize Putin has failed to convince its target audience. The Western public are not buying the hysterical political agenda.
The iconic current affairs TIME magazine follows this week’s news that Russian President Vladimir Putin came top of the TIME 100 readers’ poll.

Western publics have now alternative media sources, ranging from foreign-based professional news services to a plethora of Western-based internet sites. The alternative scope is often critical of Western government policies and capable of ably exposing ulterior, hidden political agenda. In other words, the alternative news sources are often doing the proper job of journalism that is neglected by Western mainstream media who seem to be preoccupied with advancing the political objectives of their governments – no matter how unethical those objectives are.

JADE: A Tool for Rapid Crisis Action Planning – PDF

The Joint Assistant for Deployment and Execution (JADE) offers a new technique for rapid force deployment planning, especially in crisis situations. JADE is being developed by BBN Technologies under contract to the Air Force Research Lab and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). It is being designed to operate within the next generation Global Command and Control System. JADE implements state of the art technology to reduce the time typically required for building a Time Phased Force Deployment Data package, which presently takes days or weeks, down to approximately one hour. In order to support the command and control needs of planners today and in the twenty-first century, several challenges are being met

Note sure if this is the JADE in JADE HELM, but interesting nonetheless.

 

Islamophobia, like all phobias, is based not on ignorance but on false beliefs

Reza Aslan provides crucial insight on the source and cause of widespread islamophobia in the US and around the world and the best way to counter it.

[I]t’s easy to assume Americans harbor an anti-Muslim sentiment because of the September 11 attacks. As Aslan explains that’s not exactly the case, because there’s been a rise in Islamophobia since 2001. “The further we got away from 9/11, the higher the anti-Muslim sentiment grew, so something else must be going on – there must be another reason,” Aslan explained.

That reason is not just ignorance, he says.5-16-His-Religion-Relevant-

[It] comes down to consistent and biased anti-Muslim messages that trickle down and become talking points for the media, and politicians during election season. “All of this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy,” Aslan said.

The morning after concrete fell from a Prince George’s County bridge and struck a woman’s car, the incident drew commentary at a Capitol Hill hearing Wednesday.

“We are going to have to pay for our infrastructure [repairs] or you are going to have to face blocks of concrete falling on your head,” Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said at a hearing of the House Transportation Committee.

“I did acknowledge the incident in Maryland last night,” responded U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, who has appealed for $478 billion in additional transportation funding. “There’s no excuse for that in America.”

Look How Far Bloomberg Is Taking the Propaganda Against Kroger Grocery Stores for Not Banning Guns

You’ve got to watch this new anti-gun, anti-Kroger ad.

This propaganda is part of these groups’ first ever six-figure ad campaign. SIX figures to get Kroger to stop allowing people to open carry in its stores. When Kroger did not respond to the ads the way the lobbies wanted Kroger to, the groups rallied outside Kroger corporate headquarters. They have also launched a website for people to enter grocery amounts spent at competitors to prove to Kroger that its pro-gun stance is losing money.

Let’s stop for a second and think about this rationally (in a way not driven by billionaires who use their money to buy millions in propaganda to disarm the population): how many stories come out in the news about mass shootings at a Kroger grocery store anyway? And because of lawful gun owners?

NY Times: Would You Let The IRS Prepare Your Taxes?

Around this time every year, Joseph Bankman, a professor of tax law at Stanford Law School and a longtime advocate of using technology to simplify tax filing, gets on the phone with reporters to explain what is wrong with how we do our taxes in the United States. Every year he says pretty much the same thing: No other industrialized country asks its citizens to jump through as many hoops to calculate their taxes as ours.

It isn’t just lawmakers or the hapless-seeming Internal Revenue Service that is perpetuating the annoyance of tax time, he adds. Instead it is the private sector — specifically, the software company Intuit, which makes TurboTax, the most popular tax program in the country.

For more than a decade, Mr. Bankman and a small group of tax experts have called on the government to create a tax preparation method that they say would vastly reduce the time and cost of tax-filing for most people. Intuit has been a primary obstacle to the effort.

A Reckless Act in the Senate on Iran

Congress has formally muscled its way into President Obama’s negotiations with Iran, creating new and potentially dangerous uncertainties for an agreement that offers the best chance of restraining that country’s nuclear program.

With a unanimous vote on Tuesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved a bill that would require Congress to review, and then vote on, the final text of a nuclear deal. It would also prohibit Mr. Obama from waiving economic sanctions on Iran — the crucial element of any agreement under which Iran rolls back its nuclear program — for at least 30 days, and up to 52 days, after signing an agreement so Congress has time to weigh in.

The full Senate and the House will have to approve the bill. But the committee’s action gives momentum to those who have bitterly criticized Mr. Obama for negotiating with Iran, though they offer no credible alternative to the preliminary deal on the table.

Saudi Arabia’s Alleged Involvement in the 9/11 Attacks. “Red-Herring”, Propaganda Ploy

The 9/11 narrative in the mainstream media has taken on a new slant. The FBI is now accused of whitewashing Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

The alleged Saudi involvement in supporting Osama bin Laden, not to mention the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 joint Congressional inquiry pertaining to the insidious role of Saudi Arabia in supporting the hijackers is part of a propaganda ploy.

When the report of Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 was released in December 2002, it was met with considerable skepticism. That skepticism grew for a period of time but then was reduced to speculation about what was contained in the 28 pages that had been redacted by the Bush White House.

China Doesn’t Want To Finance Nicaragua’s Canal, Panama Canal Authority Says

Nicaragua’s interoceanic canal project is still making headway despite ongoing trepidation over potential environmental damage and opaque financing details. But this week one of the project’s main skeptics, the administrator of the nearby Panama Canal, threw some cold water on suspicions that the Chinese government may be behind the deal.

“I just returned from China, and builders there told me that no state company has any interest in financing the [Nicaragua canal] project,” said Jorge Luis Quijano, administrator of the Panama Canal Authority, on Monday, according to local reports. He was speaking at an opening session of the Panama Maritime World Conference and Exhibition, an annual gathering of international maritime industry professionals.

The following article was first written in 1998. I am relinking it here not so much as to say “I told you so”, but to point out that the long term economic future of the United States was obvious, or should have been obvious, to the people who are awarded lofty degrees and paid huge salaries to comprehend such things. Instead, the economists persisted in explaining away the visible signs of gathering troubles and earned their salaries by justifying why the policies that robbed the poor to give to the rich should continue unabated.

 

Galice Miners Will Do Battle With Bureau Of Land Management

BLM recently (3/18/15) issued two Stop Orders on a mine, citing authority under their 3809 regulations, despite the fact that this is one of the oldest active claims in the country. The location date of this mine is so old that one of the location notices (the legal title to the mine) was actually first recorded in the original Galice Mining District Recorder’s book in 1876 and then later transcribed into the Josephine County Clerk’s records once the county assumed recording duties. Under the 1955 Surface Resources Act, claims of this age have exclusive surface rights unless the Department of Interior utilized a mechanism outlined in that Act to severe those surface rights. Demands to BLM to produce evidence of their surface authority in accordance to the 1955 Act have thus far garnered only “because we say so” answers and numerous stonewalling tactics. The Stop Orders came after several months of back and forth maneuvering from both sides, and are clearly retaliatory in nature.

And again, the Enclave Clause in the Constitution prohibits the federal Government from owning or controlling land other that what is beneath Federal Government buildings, military bases, or Federal Infrastructure such as harbors, dams, and airports. The US Government has been stealing the peoples’ lands since the “Nixon Shock” to pledge those lands as collateral on government borrowing.

 

 

Russian-Iranian Cooperation In The Creation Of New Regional Security Systems

It is quite obvious that Russia cannot substitute the West and in particular European countries with someone else. It is impossible for historical and cultural reasons, the abundance of industrial relations, geographical proximity and so on. Moscow can however substantially weaken such dependency through the strengthening of political, military, financial and economic relations with other countries which are friendlier and less susceptible to pressure from Washington. Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) holds a special place amongst countries friendly to the Russian government, and strategic dialogue is being actively developed with it.

“We are certainly happy this morning, this is an achievement for Israeli policy… [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s] speech in Congress … was decisive in achieving this law, which is a very important element in preventing a bad deal, or at least, in improving the agreement and making it more reasonable,” Yuval Steinitz, Netanyahu’s intelligence, foreign relations and strategic minister, told Israel Radio.

“Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” — Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, reported on Kol Ysrael radio

‘It’s our money’ podcast: be educated on monetary/credit reform or continue looting by oligarchs

*hyperlinks/podcast live at source*

Note: I make the following factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History, with all economics factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences. I challenge readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I invite professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.

Human beings are looted by asset-hole oligarchs literally by the trillions every year.

These lying sacks of spin are the .01% banksters, and “leaders” of government and corporate media.

Human beings will either continue being looted and lied-to, or earn voices for justice from basic education that includes how to create what we use for money:

 

“Staggering” Student Loan Defaults On Deck: 27% Of Students Are A Month Behind On Their Payments

Calls for a benevolent suspension of both personal responsibility and accounting truisms (which mandate that one person’s liability is everywhere and always someone else’s asset) in the interest of forgiving all student loans at the expense of the US taxpayer aside, America has a student debt problem. Here are some good places to start if you need a refresher:

Non-lethal arrest? Arizona cop takes suspect down with cruiser (CHILLING VIDEO)

Arizona police have released a chilling video showing a police cruiser being used as a simple but effective “non-lethal weapon” to take down a suspect, who police claims has been armed with a rifle he had stolen from Walmart.

The video released by authorities shows the eye level view from a police cruiser as Mario Valencia, the alleged suspect, was walking down a street in Marana, Arizona.

“One round just went out — into the sky,” an officer in the first cruiser is heard saying over the radio. “It’s definitely unlocked now. He’s definitely loaded.”

“Stand off, the gun is loaded,” the officer is heard saying just before the police vehicle speeds up, ramming Valencia.

The owner of a small hair salon has been duped out of £4,000 after being tricked into believing that bailiffs were about to burst into her business.

Marco Rubio and AIPAC allied in effort to insert poison pill into Iran deal

Marco Rubio just announced for president in a call to donors. First things first.

Rubio has his foreign-policy priorities down, too. He wants to insert a poison pill into the Iran deal:

Sen. Marco Rubio wants to make Iran recognize Israel’s right to exist as a condition of any nuclear agreement with Tehran.

The Florida Republican has floated his proposal as a possible amendment to a Senate bill written by Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) that would allow Congress to disapprove of any deal…

Iran’s deal is not with the US Government, it is with the international community. Congress has no authority over that community or the United Nations, which organized the P5+1. Congress, willing to allow the President to start wars and murder people on his own whims, is suddenly demanding oversight on a peace agreement, with the clear Israel-ordered agenda of killing the deal. But Congress can only kill the deal for the US, not the other nations. If the rest of the P5+1 agree to the deal, with the Congress being the lone holdout, the world will see the US as the rogue nation, acting once again as Israel’s slave-state to start and fight Israel’s wars.

 

Schizophrenics in the GMO labeling movement

Now that the World Health Organization has just called Roundup a probable carcinogen, people in the natural health movement and other sane folk are issuing calls for a ban on the Monsanto herbicide.

Why?

Why not, kindly and gently and softly and weakly, insist that all food containing Roundup must be labeled, so the consumer can decide whether he wants to ingest this poison?

Isn’t that what the labeling movement has done with GMOs?

Confused? You should be.

Let’s see. Roundup is a danger, so ban it. GMOs are a danger, so label them.

Want to go deeper? Monsanto engineers food crops by inserting GMOs that specifically allow these crops to survive the spraying of toxic Roundup. Right? So label the GMOs but ban the Roundup.

Figure that one out.

Remember, American and British spy agencies have intentionally weakened security for many decades. And it’s getting worse and worse. For example, they plan to use automated programs to infect millions of computers.

The Criminalization of Cash

Of course, there are many reasons presented as to why we need to transition into a cashless society. Cash is only used by criminals and terrorists, after all (just ask the government of France or the FBI or Amtrak or, presumably, the authors of House Bill 195 in Louisiana). Cash carries germs. Cash is so, like, 20th century.

There is another aspect to keep in mind.

When cash is in your pocket, it is not available to the banks to use in calculating their required cash reserves. When you use plastic, the funds move from one banking computer to another banking computer instantly, and is still available to the system as a whole to meet their reserve requirements.

There is over a trillion dollars in cash in circulation. Trapping it inside the banking system gives them more room to play around in and delay the coming crash!

Fuck Your Conscience; Do Your Job

Down the road a bit from Sisterfuck is Millegdeville, Georgia, where Brittany Cartrett had a miscarriage. She needed assistance passing the miscarried fetus, so her doctor prescribed her Misoprostol, a pill that would help her complete what had started naturally, if sadly. When her doctor called local Walmart to have it filled, the pharmacist on duty refused to do so because, as she later told Cartrett, “I couldn’t think of a valid reason why you would need this prescription.” Misoprostol can be used to induce abortion, which is why it would be effective after a miscarriage. When Cartrett explained why she needed it, the pharmacist said, “Well, I don’t feel like there is a reason why you would need it, so we refused to fill it.”

How Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor was concealed from the U.S. – Ha’aretz

Many of the details surrounding Israel’s nuclear story have already been revealed through research and via the declassification of secret information [first by author Stephen Green’s books], including information released by the U.S. government – but there was more to be mined. Nuclear history researchers Avner Cohen, and Bill Burr are releasing a new trove of old documents this week on the Website of the National Security Archive of George Washington University in Washington, providing new angles on the story. Two of them are especially eyebrow-lifting: The role played by Richard Kerry, (the father of current U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry) and the story behind the birth of the tale that the Dimona reactor was ‘only’ a textile factory.

In the past decade, the birth rate among Ethiopian-Israelis has declined by at least 20 percent. Advocacy groups now claim this decline is the result of a birth control regimen forced upon Ethiopian immigrant women.

Penetrating the Indoctrinated Mind

The fact is that human beings are programmed and indoctrinated to believe things, for which they have no real clue as to its truthfulness or validity. People who hear something through the lying “news” media or movie industry thousands of times, have been so inundated with that information, that it becomes nearly impossible for people to comprehend that anything contrary could be true, even though what they have believed to be true may not be true at all.

It actually is a long process to unwind false information and false knowledge that has been deeply embedded into the human mind. Humans have been used and abused since the beginning of time, by other humans whose motives in life are less than altruistic.

 

China to build nuclear power plants for Iran

The Chinese party however offered their own explanation: the project was yet to be given the formal go-ahead. The workers at the Chinese yard claimed that the ship was just a proposal.

The goal of this project is to assess how well these devices perform when placed in the hands of trained law enforcement personnel as they conduct their routine duties. Techniques that perform well in the laboratory may falter when brought into the “real world” of law enforcement. The research will evaluate how law enforcement officers can use these screening devices as supporting evidence in the detection of drugs in the driving population.”

This is a company that’s hugely benefited from policies of the Conservative government. But, if you believe that whatever’s good for large corporations is good for all Canadians, then Baird’s new job is no big deal. It’s just public service in a different form. A form that happens to have no accountability and yacht-loads of money.

The Information War on a Whole New Level: Space

The information war can be quickly lost if one cannot get their assets onto the “battlefield.” For the US, UK or Europe, the constant din of their propaganda spread across the planet via their impressive and immense media networks has recently run into a few snags.

In nations like Russia, China or Iran, ruling governments and local industry have begun creating their own Internets, their own alternatives to US-controlled social media platforms and search engines, and in some cases, even their own hardware to run it all on. They have also taken a cue from the US and decided to put in “kill switches” and censorship measures to prevent information from abroad being piped into their nation and disseminated among their populations.

Or more accurate than saying “to prevent information from abroad,” one could say, “propaganda from abroad.”…

The Future of Freedom: A Feature Interview with NSA Whistleblower William Binney

A 36-year veteran of America’s Intelligence Community, William Binney resigned from his position as Director for Global Communications Intelligence (COMINT) at the National Security Agency (NSA) and blew the whistle, after discovering that his efforts to protect the privacy and security of Americans were being undermined by those above him in the chain of command.

The NSA data-monitoring program which Binney and his team had developed — codenamed ThinThread — was being aimed not at foreign targets as intended, but at Americans (codenamed as Stellar Wind) was destroying privacy here and around the world. Binney voices his call to action for the billions of individuals whose rights are currently being violated.

If a political party wanted to tear America apart, weaken its position in the world, reduce our capacity to influence events, and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what the Republican Party has done under Democratic presidents.

President Obama says Republicans are undermining his authority in negotiations with other countries. He gives several examples. One is theletter from 47 Republican senators advising Iran not to trust Obama’s promises in a nuclear deal. Another is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s warning to foreign leaders that Obama’s domestic opponents won’t cooperate in any climate change plan he approves. The last straw was an allegation on Thursday from Sen. John McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee, that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is lying about the terms of the Iran nuclear deal and that Americans should instead believe the contrary account given by Iran’s dictator.

How Zionists Are Destroying Free Speech In Universities

An academic conference, International Law and the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Responsibility and Exceptionalism, was due to start this Friday but the University of Southampton – citing spurious ‘health and safety’ concerns -cancelled it, following intense pressure from the pro-Israel lobby. Despite many academics writing to the university expressing their dismay and a petitionwhich garnered wide public support, an application at the High Court yesterday denied organisers a judicial review and the conference has now beenpostponed indefinitely. While an outrageous affront to freedom of speech, Southampton’s capitulation to external pressure is not hugely surprising. The Israel lobby has a long history of censorship, including in universities, which are no longer bastions of free speech.

the unique method of execution at the Buchenwald death factory

Once the murder decision had been made, all sixteen Jews in the shelf were immediately marched to a small door adjacent to Buchenwald’s incinerator building. The door opened inward, creating a short, three-foot-long corridor. Jews were pushed and herded until they reached the corridor end. There, a hole dropped thirteen feet down a concrete shaft and into the Strangling Room. A camp worker recalled, “As they hit the floor they were garroted … by big SS guards and hung on hooks along the side wall, about 6 1/2 feet above the floor … any that were still struggling were stunned with a wooden mallet … An electric elevator … ran [the corpses] up to the incinerator room.

Jews replacing God with the Holocaust. Jews using the Holocaust to justify their lack of faith.

All of a sudden the rational secular Jews on the right, some of whom were among my closest friends, reacted with the same fanaticism as the Democrat Jews we used to collectively deride.

Is Israel about to lose its American firewall at the United Nations in New York, or will it continue to be so flameproof? … Protecting Israel from critical resolutions at the Security Council has long been a central pillar of US Middle East policy. But so rapid has been the deterioration of relations between the Obama administration and Netanyahu government that America’s protective shield is now up for discussion at the White House, as part of a broader review of US relations with Israel … Ever since the early 1970s, the US has used its veto as a permanent member of the Security Council to shield Israel from hostile and unfavourable resolutions on issues such as settlement activity in the Palestinian territories, operations in Gaza and Lebanon, and its controversial West Bank barrier.

 

CIA chief says criticism of Iran deal ‘disingenuous’

CIA director John Brennan gave a staunch defense of the framework nuclear deal with Iran, calling some criticism of the accord “disingenuous” while expressing surprise at Tehran’s concessions. In his first public remarks since the outline agreement was announced last week, the spy agency chief said the deal would impose a litany of restrictions on Iran’s nuclear work that had once seemed impossible to secure.”I must tell you the individuals who say this deal provides a pathway for Iran to a bomb are being wholly disingenuous, in my view, if they know the facts, understand what’s required for a (nuclear) program,” Brennan told an audience at Harvard University.

 

A Good Deal, a Long Time Coming

The nuclear deal as negotiated is a far cry from the kind of irresponsible capitulation critics of the negotiations charge … Armed with the knowledge that the case against Iraq’s WMD was, at best illusory and, at worst, a complete fabrication, Americans should be hesitant about accepting at face value claims of Iranian nuclear malfeasance that are unsustained by fact and are at odds with history. History does matter, both in terms of how we got to where we are, and in predicting where we are going. When it comes to Iran and its nuclear program, the world would do well to take a different path than that chosen for Iraq, and let inspections, not bombs, do the work of disarmament.

China says 57 countries to be founding members of AIIB

A total of 57 countries will be founding members of the new Beijing-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), China’s finance ministry said on Wednesday, throwing together countries as diverse as Iran, Israel, Britain and Laos.

Britain surprised some allies last month in deciding to join the AIIB, and was quickly followed by Germany, France and Italy. Among the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized countries, the United States, Japan and Canada remain as absentees.

Washington had cautioned nations about joining the bank seen as a rival to the U.S.-dominated World Bank

Iran Says It Is Negotiating With World Powers, Not The U.S. Congress

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that Tehran was negotiating a comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers, not the U.S. Congress, and called a Senate committee’s vote to give Congress the power to review any potential deal a domestic U.S. matter.

The Iranian leader, speaking in a televised speech in the northern Iranian city of Rasht, also repeated earlier statements that his country will not accept any comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers unless all sanctions imposed against it are lifted.

“We are in talks with the major powers and not with the Congress,” Rouhani said, Iranian state television reported. Rouhani said the U.S. Congress’ power to review a nuclear deal with Iran was a domestic U.S. matter

Federal court rejects Third Amendment claim, say police are allowed to quarter in private homes without the owner’s consent?

Back in 2013, a lot of attention focused on a Third Amendment claim against Henderson, Nevada police officers. I wrote about the case here. The Third Amendment, which forbids the “quartering” of “soldiers” in private homes without the owner’s consent, is often the butt of jokes because it is so rarely litigated. But in this case, a Nevada family claimed that local police had violated the Amendment by forcibly occupying their home in order to gain a “tactical advantage” against suspected criminals in the neighboring house.

The ‘Nuland-Kagan Plan’ To Kill The Minsk-2 Peace Agreement

There is a small but highly influential and powerful faction embedded throughout Washington’s top political institutions and policy think tanks, who’s primary objective is the promotion of region and global military conflicts.

They will not rest unless the world is on fire, and the share prices of ‘defense’ corporations like General Electric, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, Northrup Grumman, Blackstone Group, and Carlyle Group – are hitting record highs. To do this they must also keep Israel relevant, if not the center of attention, regarding US foreign policy.

 

Putin briefs Netanyahu on logic behind sale of S-300 to Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin has held a telephone conversation with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to brief him on the logic behind the Russian leadership’s decision to lift the freeze from the contract to sell S-300 air defense systems to Iran.
The Kremlin’s press service has said the Russian leader put the emphasis on the fact that the S-300 system had entirely defensive functions and by no means endangered the security of Israel or other countries in the Middle East.

Motsik, a career diplomat, was appointed Ukraine’s ambassador in Washington in 2010. He was repeatedly accused of loyalty with former president Viktor Yanukovych ousted in February 2014.

Preparing for race war: The South African white supremacist bootcamps which are training thousands of youths to fight blacks and create an apartheid state

Deep in rural South Africa, a terrifying white supremacist movement is brainwashing teenagers to rise up in defiance of Nelson Mandela’s hard-fought dream of a Rainbow Nation.

The far-right Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB) is training thousands of youths in military-style bootcamps northwest of Johannesburg to fight for a separate white state.

By day, they are pushed to their physical limits with assault courses and self-defence lessons, all the while being told of the danger from ‘the millions of blacks trying to kill you’.

All of the suits proclaim that the FCC’s new net neutrality rules, and its reclassification of broadband providers as common carriers under Title II are an “arbitrary and capricious” implementation of “outdated utility style regulations” that will harm the greater Internet, sector innovation and industry investment (claims even the industry itself has admitted are bunk, yet never seem to go away).

 

BEX ALERT – ISIS Camp a Few Miles from Texas, Mexican Authorities Confirm

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

This is your daily dose of BOOGA BOOGA! If there was a real threat just south of the border, wouldn’t the US Government close those gates, instead of letting just anyone walk through?

S&P Cuts Ukraine Ratings, Says Default ‘Virtually Inevitable’

Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services on Friday cut Ukraine’s credit rating further into junk territory, reflecting its view that an eventual default is “virtually inevitable.”

Separately on Friday, S&P affirmed France’s sovereign rating at double-A and Spain’s at triple-B.

The latest downgrade at S&P, to double-C from triple-C-minus, comes as Ukraine embarks on a restructuring of its foreign currency commercial debt, coupled with a deteriorating macroeconomic environment. The action follows downgrades at Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings earlier this year.

And all those banks that loaned Poroshenko all that money to recapture the east will not be repaid by Ukraine. But no problem, they’ll get another taxpayer bailout, right?

Republicans Push $269 Billion Handout For Millionaire Heirs And Heiresses

House Republicans this week will vote to hand the heirs and heiresses of America’s largest fortunes a $269 billion tax break by repealing the federal inheritance tax.

The legislation would shield the very richest families from taxes on the fortunes they inherit. After years of GOP attacks on the inheritance tax, also known as the estate tax, only a few thousand of the wealthiest families are subjected to it — 4,700 total in 2013, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. Only individual fortunes worth over $5.43 million can be taxed under current law, an amount that doubles to $10.86 million for wealthy couples. The Republican proposal would eliminate all of these estates — which are over 15,700 percent richer than the median American household — from taxation.

 

Think the poor don’t pay taxes? This chart proves you very wrong.

One of the stranger conservative tax talking points is the claim that the tax code is somehow unfair to rich people, who are unduly burdened by the progressive income tax. “The top 10 percent pay two-thirds of the income tax,” the Heritage Foundation’s Stephen Moore notes in a representative piece. “And the bottom 50 percent — all Americans with an income below the median — pay just 3 percent of the income tax.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made a similar argument in his 2013 and 2014 budgets, which included a flat tax to make “the system more efficient and fair by broadening the tax base, letting everyone contribute to their government instead of a few people contributing for everyone.”

Harris fled and — according to the explanation given by officials — Bates accidentally shot the 44-year-old while trying to Tase him:

Iran Deal Reached In Senate; White House Hints Its Support

A tentative deal has been reached by senators on a bill to apply congressional oversight to a nuclear deal with Iran. And early signals from the White House suggest the president will drop his veto threat and sign the measure.

Under the deal, the president would still be required to submit any final agreement before Congress and Congress would continue to have a say over whether he can lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program. But the new deal, hammered out between Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, would reduce the time frame the Senate has to consider the lifting of sanctions — from 60 days to 52 at most — and would keep demands on Iran limited primarily to its nuclear program and not, for example, against its sponsorship of terrorism.

“The president would be willing to sign the proposed compromise that is working its way through the committee today,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday.

Now, 150 years later, it seems fitting to reflect upon the place of Abraham Lincoln in our modern world – especially as politicians and would-be presidents selectively claim Lincoln’s legacy, often out of context.

Due to a number of contingencies, the life of Texas-born Mohanad Mahmoud Al Farekh was ultimately spared. He was captured in a raid in Pakistan last year and was taken to the United States to face trial in Brooklyn, New York.

CITY FAILED TO FIX BRIDGE WHERE MAN’S DAUGHTER DIED, DAD FIXES IT HIMSELF, SO THEY ARRESTED HIM

Two high school students were tragically killed last month after 18-year-old Taylor Swing lost control of his vehicle on a curve. The high school student’s car then careened over the edge of a bridge. Swing, as well as his passenger, 16-year-old Cecily Hamilton, both drowned after the vehicle landed in the creek below.

There are currently barricades along the length of the bridge, but none at the entrance after the curve. Had there been barricades, Hamilton’s father believes that the teenagers may still be alive today.

Since this tragic accident, the father of 16-year-old Cecily, Shannon Hamilton, has been attempting to get the county to construct barricades to prevent any more lives being lost. Unsatisfied with the county seeming to blow off the issue, the grieving father decided to take matters into his own hands to make his community a safer place. Hamilton began constructing temporary safety features himself using materials donated by neighbors.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

How many more people are going to have to die here before the city believes it’s “quota” has been reached of dead and maimed individuals before they get this fixed?!? And since when has a volunteer, fixing something the city government cannot or will not fix, be accused of “interference with government property”?!?

I hope that if this comes to a trial phase, that the person who made that call for arresting this man, becomes characterizes as the nether end of a donkey, and is shunned by the rest of his community as though he were Kryptonite.

I doubt seriously that this will happen, because of a “Government uber alles” attitude at every level of of government, from city to national. And if it is a question that the city doesn’t have the money to fix this (one too many unfunded mandates, perhaps), they should find a way of working with citizens who are donating time, energy, and materials to make their town a better, more safe place to live. Good Samaritans like this should be encouraged, not punished.

The city government here is an absolute epic fail, and should be voted out of office at the earliest opportunity.

As the National Journal reported in 2014, even the pathetically weak anti-war left is not ready to reconcile with Hillary given her warmongering as Secretary of State. And with good reason. Scratching just lightly beneath the surface of Hillary Clinton’s career reveals the empirical evidence of her historic support for aggressive interventions around the globe.

His vaccine research began because of his work with educating about mercury contamination from coal burning power plants. At the lectures he would give, mothers would tell him about mercury being injected into their children via vaccines, and that he should investigate what that mercury does to kids, since many of them told of their children’s health problems after being vaccinated.

 

Children of “Holocaust survivors” being groomed to perpetuate weaponized historical narrative

Emotional, traumatizing movies produced and promoted by the admittedly Jewish-owned and controlled Hollywood movie industry have been instrumental in this successful propaganda and public relations campaign on behalf of organized Jewry. “Holocaust survivors” and their emotional, dubious, and in many cases completely fraudulent testimony have been crucial to this successful propaganda campaign as well.

As the number of “Holocaust survivors” rapidly diminishes, the organized Jewish community is seeking to groom the children of these alleged “survivors” in order to perpetuate this entirely false, highly weaponized narrative of history, as The Times of Israel recently reported:

 

Raw Video Shows Cops Shoot, Kill Subdued Man, Mock Him While He Lay Dying

The final tragic moments of Eric Harris’s life were caught on video, as well as the sociopathic nature of law enforcement. Harris was accidently shot by a reserve deputy, apparently meaning to taser him, while on the ground being subdued by other officers.

Harris can be seen on the video running from police as the officer with the body cam gives chase, catching and taking Harris to the ground. Once on the ground the officer can be heard telling Harris, “Roll on your stomach now.”

Reserve officer Robert Bates, 73, can then be heard yelling “Tazer! Tazer!” as if to inform the other officer that he was about to use his stun gun on Harris, when suddenly a gunshot rings out.

“I shot him!” the stunned reserve officer says, as he drops his gun onto the ground. “I’m sorry.”

 

ANALYSIS: Hillary Clinton a ‘wolf in wolf’s clothing’ for Mideast?

Clinton famously voted in 2002 to support the Iraq war; in 2011, she argued for NATO missile strikes against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. She also speaks favourably of her good relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

FLASHBACK – Secret recordings show US military and a Democratic congressman distrusted Hillary Clinton on Libya and went behind her back to negotiate with Gadhafi

Secret phone recordings have revealed that a Democratic member of Congress and top Pentagon leaders went around then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to negotiate with the Libyan regime of Muammar Gadhafi because they were convinced she was hell-bent on taking the U.S. to war.

 

FLASHBACK – If the Libyan war was about saving lives, it was a catastrophic failure

As the reality of what western media have hailed as Libya’s “liberation” becomes clearer, however, the butchering of Gaddafi has been revealed as only a reflection of a much bigger picture. On Tuesday, Human Rights Watch reported the discovery of 53 bodies, military and civilian, in Gaddafi’s last stronghold of Sirte, apparently executed – with their hands tied – by former rebel militia.

Its investigator in Libya, Peter Bouckaert, told me yesterday that more bodies are continuing to be discovered in Sirte, where evidence suggests about 500 people, civilians and fighters, have been killed in the last 10 days alone by shooting, shelling and Nato bombing.

President Assad calls out phony Anti-ISIS coalition

The Syrian President pointed out that the United States and its dozens of allies are actually doing much less fighting against ISIS than Syria is. The truth is, of course, that President Assad’s Syrian army is the one effective force fighting ISIS, while the United States and its allies have been pouring money and weapons into the “rebel” forces fighting against Assad. Thus, on balance, the United States-led coalition is actually allied with ISIS.

Today the artillery of the Ukrainian punishers fired on the positions of militias in Peski and the airport.

This is stated in Monday’s weekly report of the UN office for the coordination of humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
“There are concerns about implementing an electronic system for obtaining permits required to move between controlled government and uncontrolled areas. Personal data of 6 thousand people who applied for permits, was freely available on the Internet, resulting in concern about the safety of these persons and their relatives”, – the document says.
Earlier the UN have noted that the introduction of the permit system will limit the right to freedom of movement, and will make life difficult for people who tend to leave conflict-affected areas of Eastern Ukraine.

Ukraine received a “visa-free” regime with the EU, visas are not issued

In most States of the Schengen area has significantly increased the number of refusals of visas to citizens of Ukraine. In particular, in some consulates, the proportion of refusals increased by hundreds of percent, and Belgium in 2014 denied every tenth Ukrainian applicant. Quite large is also the bounce rate in Sweden (up 4.57%), Switzerland (4,56%), Finland (4,55%), the Netherlands (4,28%). Overall, 16 of the 22 Schengen States that have consulates in Ukraine, has increased the frequency of failures. The champion was Finland, which increased the number of failures in 3.3 times.
Besides her, the denial of visas to Ukrainian applicants became more consulates in Switzerland (2.8 times), Spain (2.6 times), Portugal (2.2 times), Greece (2.1 times).
Ukrainians are also increasingly void open visa. Also consulates began carefully checking the solvency of travelling to the EU and the coincidence of the real purpose of the trip specified in the visa application.

 

Kosovo Serbs have celebrated the Passover at gunpoint

Orthodox Serbs in Kosovo celebrated in this year’s Easter under heavy police guard. Even under the protection of UN and other international organizations, the Serbs do not feel safe.
Albanians not only pollute and plunder churches and monasteries, but constantly threatened by people of faith, who are afraid for their lives. Especially in the days of the big Church holidays. And this is repeated from year to year for 16 years, since the U.S. and its NATO allies almost occupied the southern part of Serbia – Kosovo and Metohija. The colonizers did not want Orthodox culture and people who walk in their ancient temples and honor the traditions of their glorious ancestors.

After 16 years of “democracy on the American model” in Kosovo destroyed more than 20 temples and monasteries.

The US is pursuing a hegemonic policy, Naryshkin said. “The obedience of almost the whole Europe in military affairs has already been reached, and many things are under control in political affairs. Now it’s time for trade and finances,” he said. “America needs the lengthy sanctions saga that comes in violation of the international law and the atmosphere of information hysteria to continue the unpunished economic banditry,” Naryshkin wrote.

Wildfires raging in Russian Siberia cross into northern China

Powerful wildfires raging across Russia’s Siberian Trans-Baikal Territory have expanded eightfold over the past 24 hours, crossing the Russian border into Inner Mongolia, northern China, region’s state forestry service reports.
According to Chinese emergency rescue services, wildfires have hit Argun, Inner Mongolia Province, destroying at least 85 residential and farm buildings, as well as vehicles and other hardware.
The Xinxua News Agency says the economic damage is put at $3.2 million. No casualties have been reported as of yet.
Fires in the Trans-Baikal Territory began on March 19, already destroying 145 residential buildings in 19 local settlements, home to more than 400 people.

“A joint with Malaysian experts visit to the site is scheduled for April 17. We don’t know whether criminal law experts plan an independent trip to the crash site before that,” the Donetsk News Agency quotes the emergencies ministry as saying.
Earlier, the head of the team of Malaysian experts, Hussein Omar Khan, said the team would get down to work on April 14 and would stay in Donetsk for at least two or three weeks.
He said it was tasked with search for remains as well as material evidence.

Cash Banned in Louisiana at Garage Sales, Flea Markets etc.

With the passage of House Bill 195 into law, the State of Louisiana has banned the use of cash in all transactions involving secondhand goods. State representative Ricky Hardy, a co-author of the bill, claims that the bill targets criminals who traffic in stolen goods. According to Hardy, “It’s a mechanism to be used so the police department has something to go on and have a lead.” The bill prohibits cash transactions by “secondhand dealers,” defined to include garage sales, flea markets, resellers of specialty items, and even non-profit resellers like Goodwill. Curiously, it specifically exempts pawnbrokers from the ban. But of course, pawn shops–and not rented stalls at local church flea markets–are notorious as places that criminals frequent to convert stolen goods into quick cash. So what gives? Are the authors of the bill and those who voted for it ignoramuses–or are they deliberately obscuring the real purpose of the bill?

Nasa’s Curiosity rover finds water below surface of Mars

Mars has liquid water just below its surface, according to new measurements by Nasa’s Curiosity rover.

Until now, scientists had thought that conditions on the red planet were too cold and arid for liquid water to exist, although there were known to be deposits of ice.

Prof Andrew Coates, head of planetary science at the Mullard Space, said: “The evidence so far is that any water would be in the form of permafrost. It’s the first time we’ve had evidence of liquid water there now.”

The latest findings suggest that Martian soil is damp with liquid brine, due to the presence of a salt that significantly lowers the freezing point of water. When mixed with calcium perchlorate liquid water can exist down to around -70C, and the salt also soaks up water vapour from the atmosphere.

Prosecutors suspect man hacked lottery computers to score winning ticket

Eddie Raymond Tipton, 51, may have inserted a thumbdrive into a highly locked-down computer that’s supposed to generate the random numbers used to determine lottery winners, The Des Moines Register reported, citing court documents filed by prosecutors. At the time, Tipton was the information security director of the Multi-State Lottery Association, and he was later videotaped purchasing a Hot Lotto ticket that went on to fetch the winning $14.3 million payout.

In court documents filed last week, prosecutors said there is evidence to support the theory Tipton used his privileged position inside the lottery association to enter a locked room that housed the random number generating computers and infect them with software that allowed him to control the winning numbers.

“As news organizations are increasingly driven by a bottom-line mentality, the news we get becomes more and more sensational. What is the difference between Time and Newsweek?

The concentration of media power means that Americans increasingly get their information from a few sources who decide what is “news.” — Oliver Stone

Foodstamp Financiers: Wells Fargo Workers Protest Re-Emergence Of Predatory Practices

One of America’s biggest banks is going to be protested by an unlikely group today: its employees. As The Guardian reports, Wells Fargo bankers are protesting the bank’s alleged predatory practices – mainly the sales quotas imposed on some of its workers (which have led to at least 30 employees opening duplicate accounts, sometimes without customers’ knowledge, in order to inflate their sales numbers). One worker warns, “it is not in Wells Fargo’s best interest for customers to purchase products and services they don’t use or need.” Now where have we seen this kind of activity before? Wells Fargo bank workers are not the only ones struggling to make ends meet without breaking ethical standards as bank tellers have collected as much as $105m in food stamps.

Drone Victims Take Germany to Court for Abetting U.S. Murders

Their suit argues that it is illegal under German law for the German government to allow the U.S. air base at Ramstein to be used for drone murders abroad. The suit comes after the passage of a resolution in the European Parliament in February 2014 urging European nations to “oppose and ban the practice of extrajudicial targeted killings” and to “ensure that the Member States, in conformity with their legal obligations, do not perpetrate unlawful targeted killings or facilitate such killings by other states.”

I’ve always thought of drone murders as illegal under the laws of the countries where the murders happen, as well as under the UN Charter and the Kellogg Briand Pact. I asked Schüller: Is your suit seeking prosecution for murder where (or in one of the places where) the act is committed from a distance?

Saudi Arabia, Turkey Discussing Unlikely Alliance To Oust Syria’s Assad

Turkey and Saudi Arabia, two nations with a long history of rivalry, are in high-level talks with the goal of forming a military alliance to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, according to sources familiar with the discussions.

The talks are being brokered by Qatar. As the partnership is currently envisioned, Turkey would provide ground troops, supported by Saudi Arabian airstrikes, to assist moderate Syrian opposition fighters against Assad’s regime, according to one of the sources.

World War 3 Averted

Despite the hysterical, irrational protestations of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his sycophants embedded throughout all levels of the American political and media establishment, Iran finally came to a respectable preliminary agreement over its peaceful nuclear program with the so-called P5+1 powers, which include the United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China, along with Germany.

U.S. Sniper a Hero?

Christopher Scott “Chris” Kyle, the subject of the flag-waving fluff film, American Sniper, was hardly a role model. An invader, he looted, murdered and pillaged during the American invasion of Iraq like a savage of old. A Navy SEAL, his job was to break into the homes of innocent people and murder them if they resisted. Often, like a common burglar, he would steal from his victims. The United States military credits Kyle with murdering 160 people, many of them women and children, whose crime was to resist a foreign invader intent on making their nation part of the New World Order.

 

Scottish Independence Vote Stolen

On September 18, 2014, Scotland’s voters went to the polls to vote on the question: Should Scotland be independent as it was prior to 1603? In some areas 90% of the qualified voters turned out in hopes of having their say. The next day it was reported that the official result was only 45% “yes” for independence to 55% “no.” But as Hamlet might say, something is rotten in the state of Scotland with evidence indicating that the election was rigged.

Flashback 2007 – “Jews Plotted The Armenian Holocaust”

The Young Turk movement, AKA Committee of Union and Progress, arose out of the Rothschilds’ oil interests in the Black Sea area of the Ottoman Empire in the late 1800s. ‘Creating stability’ in an incendiary realm was necessary for the Rothschilds’ new oil enterprise Baku Oil. The instability of the Armenian Christians’ financial and intellectual prominence in the area was not “good for business.” . . .

1891: Out of the Donmeh a Zionist political group forms called The Committee of Union and Progress, later called The Young Turks. The group is headed by a Freemason Jew by the name of Emmanuel Carraso who organizes the secret Committee of Union and Progress in Geneva with the help of the Rothschilds.

1915: The Armenian Holocaust engineered by the ruling Jews of The Young Turks, leaves 1.5 million Armenian Christians starved, tortured, and murdered.

“Future-Proofing”: Where Surgical Removal of Body Parts is Sane, But Eating Healthy is Crazy

I think it’s really time for America to rethink what makes someone a positive example of taking charge of one’s health.

For example, many of us avoid fluoridated tap water and GMOs, and people think we’re nuts.

Angelina Jolie has her breasts and female reproductive parts removed and she’s a freakin’ national hero for preventative health care. They’re calling the action “future-proofing against cancer.”

What?

In what world could this possibly make sense? How on earth is mutilating your body more proactive than avoiding the toxic stuff to begin with?

Hillary backs Israel’s crimes, opposes the UN and international law. The corruption and nastiness in her hidden emails need hardly be seen to be estimated. She was too corrupt for the Watergate Committee, for godsake, trying to keep Nixon in for Ted Kennedy to run against, just as the Democrats of 2007 kept the war on Iraq going in order to run against it again.

A few days earlier John McCain had expressed the wish that Israel “go rogue” and attack Iran in order to upend the Iran negotiations.

The average U.S. voter or taxpayer doesn’t realize this important point and thinks that the U.S. government is merely swatting away bad guys who are attacking us because we love freedom. Politicians, such as George W. Bush and Barack Obama, purposefully obscure the decades of U.S. meddling in the Middle East and Islamic countries prior to any terrorist attack on the United States, including that of 9/11. And after that fateful day, the U.S. doubled down on what most inflames militant Islamist radicals — non-Muslim attacks on and occupation of Muslim soil — by attacking or invading at least seven Muslim countries. Bush and Obama have told the world that we are not at war with Islam, but Muslims may think differently from the other side of the gun barrel.

Israeli Paper: Israel Needs To Find the Right Time To Stop Iran’s Nuclear Program

“Israel is on its own on Iran and has to find the right time to stop its nuclear program kinetically,” Efraim Inbar, director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University, told The Jerusalem Post in an interview on Sunday.

“The issue is political will,” said Inbar, arguing that we got to this point “because the US administration does not have the will to act against Iranian nuclear aspirations.”

“US-Israel relations are on a collision course because of [President Barack] Obama’s policy on Iran and during this difficult period Israel needs to minimize the damage to the pillars of US-Israel relations,” he said.

However, he says, “We cannot accept the American policy on Iran and sometimes small states have to oppose even superpowers’ policies.”

 

“Bundy Ranch” type standoff brewing in Southern Oregon between miners and BLM

The area in question has produced in excess of 10 million ounces of gold since its conception, and geologists estimate that only 10% of the gold in the ground has been removed, which makes this area highly sought after by any standard. It is said that children find gold with their hands in the creeks to this day.

BLM has made several attempts to disband the operation through violations that claim improper paperwork filing, ruling changes over time, and other unsubstantiated claims. The miners of this district have spend tens of thousands of dollars to date to fighting the BLM in the courts and other avenues. The district has made requests to produce the official rulings that show they are in violation which have gone unanswered. They simple reason given by the BLM is that “they say so”.

 

Egypt: Life sentence for those digging or using smuggling tunnels to Gaza

Cairo – People who dig and use cross-border tunnels in Egypt could face a maximum penalty of life in jail, state news agency MENA said on Sunday, citing amendments to the penal code targeting activity in the frontier area near the Gaza Strip.

Egypt declared a state of emergency in the border area last year after at least 33 security personnel were killed in attacks in the Sinai Peninsula, a remote but strategic region bordering Israel, Gaza and the Suez Canal. There were several militant attacks in the Sinai on Sunday.

The amendments to the penal code were passed by presidential decree, MENA said.

BREAKING: OREGON GOLD MINING STAND OFF WITH BLM….NEXT BUNDY RANCH

BLM recently (3/18/15) issued two Stop Orders on a mine, citing authority under their 3809 regulations, despite the fact that this is one of the oldest active claims in the country. The location date of this mine is so old that one of the location notices (the legal title to the mine) was actually first recorded in the original Galice Mining District Recorder’s book in 1876 and then later transcribed into the Josephine County Clerk’s records once the county assumed recording duties. Under the 1955 Surface Resources Act, claims of this age have exclusive surface rights unless the Department of Interior utilized a mechanism outlined in that Act to severe those surface rights. Demands to BLM to produce evidence of their surface authority in accordance to the 1955 Act have thus far garnered only “because we say so” answers and numerous stonewalling tactics. The Stop Orders came after several months of back and forth maneuvering from both sides, and are clearly retaliatory in nature.

I would remind everyone that the Enclave Clause in the Constitution forbids the US Government from owning/controlling any lands other than those underneath Federal Buildings, military bases, or Federal Infrastructure such as harbors and airports. But when Nixon ended gold convertibility and doubts began to surface that the US actually had all of the gold it was pledging as collateral on government borrowing, Nixon created the EPA to bypass the Enclave Clause and start grabbing public lands away from the people and use them as collateral for borrowing, now amounting to almost 1/4 of the entire nation. Despite references to China in the original story, I think the US Government is starting to commandeer private gold resources to replace the missing gold at the New York Federal Reserve.

Jeb Bush: Obama meets Castro, but not Netanyahu?

Former Florida governor and expected Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized US President Barack Obama for holding talks with Cuban leader Raul Castro while refusing to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the latter’s last trip to Washington.

“Obama meets with Castro but refused to meet w/ Netanyahu,” Bush tweeted Sunday. “Why legitimize a cruel dictator of a repressive regime?”

Well, Jeb, since you obviously have not been paying attention, Castro didn’t try to upstage Obama with a grandstanding speech before Congress. Castro hasn’t had his hand out every year for billions of taxpayer dollars while building a nuclear arsenal that makes all that financial aid illegal under US law, and wheras Israel has started war after war after war, creating a mess in the Middle East that Israel expects the US to clean up, Castro has been pretty much minding his own business. And if you don’t understand that difference, you are far too stupid to be President!

The ISIL terrorist group has threatened to “burn the United States again” by conducting terrorist attacks against the country similar to the September, 11, 2001 attacks in New York City and the Washington, DC.

The Takfiri terrorist organization released a propaganda video on Saturday via the Internet titled “We Will Burn America”, warning that Americans are not safe anywhere in the world.

“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location,” a voice-over in the video says. “But the dream of Americans to have safety became a mirage.”

“Today there is no safety for any American on the globe,” the voice adds, while showing footage of planes crashing into the World Trade Center in New York City as well as acts of savagery by the group in Iraq and Syria.

 

Alexandr Dugin – The Fourth Political Theory & Blind Western Liberalism

Aleksandr Dugin is one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post-Soviet Russia. In addition to the many books he has authored on political, philosophical and spiritual topics, he currently serves on the staff of Moscow State University, and is the intellectual leader of the Eurasia Movement. For more than a decade, he has also been an advisor to Vladimir Putin and others in the Kremlin on geopolitical matters, being a vocal advocate of a return of Russian power to the global stage, to act as a counterweight to American domination. Dugin joins us to speak about the subject of his book, The Fourth Political Theory. He begins with an overview of this political vision, one that is a fundamental criticism of liberalism in all forms, but does not fall into communism, nationalism or fascism.

5 Insane Realities At My Fundamentalist Christian College

“I received a call slip in my mailbox ordering me to the dean’s office,” she says. “I remember that it was really weird, because it came on a Sunday.” When she got there, she found a waiting room full of other fallen women. “When I was called into the office,” she says, “the dean and one of her assistants were waiting. ‘How are you?’ they asked. ‘How are you feeling?'” She told them she felt fine, and they cut right to the chase. “We’re concerned about your health. We’re concerned you might be pregnant.”

That seemed unlikely to Lilith, a currently menstruating virgin. “They told me ‘People said you’ve been feeling sick and vomiting in trash cans,'” which was only slightly less confusing, because she had never been that sick the whole time she had been at school. When she explained all of these things, they asked “Would you be OK with taking a pregnancy test to prove your innocence?” That’s verbatim what they said, as if pregnancy was a crime.

German anti-Israeli writer, Günter Grass, dies at 87

Germany’s respected author and noble winning novelist, Günter Grass, known for his sharp criticism of Israel and those supporting the Tel Aviv regime, has died at the age of 87.

Germany’s Steidl publishing house announced Monday that Grass died at a hospital in the northern city of Lübeck.

Best known for his 1959 novel The Tin Drum, the German author won many international awards, with the most notable of them the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1999.

Many still continue to relish the novels, poems and stories written by Grass, especially those created in his 80s, but the mustached literary icon took to the headlines by lashing out at Israel over the regime’s continuous spread of hatred and fear in the Middle East and the world.

In his famous poem entitled “What Must Be Said” (“Was gesagt werden muss”), which was published in several prestigious European newspapers in 2012, Grass called the Tel Aviv regime the greatest threat to the peace in the world.

He went on to state that the government had decided to work hand in glove with the multinational GM seed industry that stood to gain immensely from the open field trails. Since then, the Modi-led administration has continued the policy to drive GMOs into India.

IAEA, Iran To Hold Technical Meeting In Terhan On Wednesday

The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said it and Iran would hold a technical meeting in Tehran on Wednesday.

Iran and six world powers struck a framework agreement this month to curb Iran’s nuclear programme in exchange for easing Western sanctions.

The U.N.‘s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has said it expected progress this month in its own investigation into Iran’s current and past nuclear activities.

Diplomats have voiced concern there could be little progress on the IAEA investigation until a final political deal with world powers is reached.

Martin Armstrong – Big Losses Coming in the Bond Market

Renowned financial analyst Martin Armstrong says you can forget about the U.S. dollar crashing in value. Armstrong contends, “No, that’s absurd. The euro is in terrible shape. The yen is in terrible shape, and honestly, you can’t park money in yuan or Russian rubles, yet. I mean, let’s be realistic here, but eventually–yes.”

Armstrong says the bond market is a different story as the Fed is going to be forced to raise rates. He contends just a few percentage points in rising rates are going to cause big losses and big changes. Armstrong predicts, “People will be losing huge money. We are looking at a few percentage points, and you are going to blow the national debts of all these countries way out of whack, and that’s what’s going to force political change.”

Emails reveal US officials undermining Blackwater case

The FBI agents have found out that senior officials in the US Justice Department intentionally attempted to undermine the case of Blackwater security guards’ fatal shooting of Iraqi civilians in 2007, internal emails revealed.

The FBI has planned to charge the American contractors with crimes, including weapons charges, manslaughter and attempted manslaughter that could send them to prison for the rest of their lives.

Several emails, obtained by the New York Times, however, revealed that the department’s senior officials were against the move and sought to drop some of the charges in an effort to lighten the sentences.

In September 2007, Blackwater security guards opened fire on unarmed Iraqi people near a bustling traffic circle with machine guns and grenade into Baghdad’s crowded Nisour Square, killing at least 17 people and wounding several others.

“And I have seen the great accomplishments,” Clinton added; “the pride of the desert blooming and the start-ups springing up. I’ve held hands with the victims of terrorism in their hospital rooms, visited a bombed-out pizzeria in Jerusalem, walked along the fence near Gilo. And I know with all my heart how important it is that our relationship go from strength to strength.”

It was the seventh flight in the last two weeks and the second one over the past 24 hours. The Il-62 plane delivered about 150 citizens of Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Bulgaria, Yemen, Syria, Germany, Ukraine, Egypt, Poland and Indonesia from Yemen to Moscow.
All of them will undergo a medical, passport and customs control. Afterwards, buses will take them to the Russian Foreign Ministry evacuation center where they will be met by representatives of foreign countries. Those who will continue their journey home will be taken to Moscow airports.
The previous plane that landed at Chkalovsky airport on Sunday evening had delivered about 150 nationals of Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Yemen.

UN special envoy for Syria urges global community to listen to Russia on Syrian crisis

It is time for the global community to listen more closely to Russia on the crisis in Syria, UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura told the Independent on Monday.
“Russia has influence on Damascus, and it’s very important that they get involved,” de Mistura was quoted by the newspaper as saying. “The two countries’ relationship goes back to the time when Bashar al-Assad’s father was in power. Therefore the Russians do have a knowledge of the system and the way they think,” he added.
However, Russia is only a small part of the wider solution he is seeking, the diplomat noted. In the current situation de Mistura said he believes that “anything” capable of breaking the stalemate in Syria should be tried, “even if imperfect or partial.”

The New “Water Barons”: Wall Street Mega-Banks are Buying up the World’s Water

A disturbing trend in the water sector is accelerating worldwide. The new “water barons” — the Wall Street banks and elitist multibillionaires — are buying up water all over the world at unprecedented pace. Familiar mega-banks and investing powerhouses such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Macquarie Bank, Barclays Bank, the Blackstone Group, Allianz, and HSBC Bank, among others, are consolidating their control over water. Wealthy tycoons such as T. Boone Pickens, former President George H.W. Bush and his family, Hong Kong’s Li Ka-shing, Philippines’ Manuel V. Pangilinan and other Filipino billionaires, and others are also buying thousands of acres of land with aquifers, lakes, water rights, water utilities, and shares in water engineering and technology companies all over the world.

 

 

Citi Economist Says Solutions To Current Economic Problems Is To Abolish Cash

The world’s central banks have a problem. When economic conditions worsen, they react by reducing interest rates in order to stimulate the economy. But, as has happened across the world in recent years, there comes a point where those central banks run out of room to cut — they can bring interest rates to zero, but reducing them further below that is fraught with problems, the biggest of which is cash in the economy.

Many times the presence is one officer as a military attaché or similar post or even a military dependent. But some countries host significant numbers of members of the U.S. armed forces.

ISIL helps Israel conceal historical origin

“The Zionist paradigm is founded on the distorted story of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt and their persecution by the Assyrians and Captivity by Babylonians. But the truth is that the Israelites never set foot in Egypt or Palestine. Actually they never left Ancient Arabia and North Yemen, their origin land, before the Babylonian Captivity” . . .

. . . The question here; why a purportedly Islamist organization want to destroy ancient Assyrian and Babylonia artifacts. Islamic laws don’t ban sculpture per se (most Islamic countries have museums packed with statues) but only prohibits worshiping idols as used to be during pagan cultures. Everybody knew that neither Assyrian nor Babylonian ancient idols/statues were honored or worshipped by modern day Iraqis or Syrians. Still that did not deter ISIL from destroying the ancient statues, cuneiform tablets and artifacts.

Ukraine: The Truth Becomes Increasingly Apparent

Moscow’s official line on Ukraine–and it should not be dismissed just because that’s what it is–is that the U.S. spent about $5 billion backing “regime change” in that sad, bankrupt country, resulting in a coup d’etat (or putsch) in Kiev in February 2014 in which neo-fascists played a key role. The coup occurred because the U.S. State Department and Pentagon hoped to replace the democratically elected administration with one that would push for Ukraine’s entry into NATO, a military alliance designed from its inception in 1949 to challenge Russia. The ultimate intent was to evict the Russian Black Sea Fleet from the bases it’s maintained on the Crimean Peninsula for over 230 years.

Boston Marathon Bombings’ Guilty Verdict Exposed as a Gross Travesty of Justice

With the official government narrative of the 9/11 attack filled with a plethora of lies that have since been subsequently exposed, the next biggest “war on terror” event on US soil that the feds failed to stop was the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. And now the lone living suspect from that horrific crime that killed three people, left 17 limbless and injured 264 victims (though that number’s been accused of being purposely inflated) has now been found guilty of all 30 counts after the jury’s 11 hour deliberation earlier this week. As we mark the second anniversary of this tragic event and the second and final phase of the trial beginning on Monday that will decide the fate of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – whether he’ll live out the rest of his life in prison or be put to death, a critical review of preceding events and developments surrounding his high profile, extremely significant case seems both timely and much needed.

Ahoy! Oil Tankers Form Four-Mile Line In Persian Gulf As Iran Talks Stoke Supply Glut Fears

With Tehran sitting on 9% of the world’s proven reserves, the lifting of sanctions and opening of the country’s oil fields to foreign investment could trigger a dramatic decline in crude prices as an extra million bpd gets set to be unleashed on an already saturated market.

8 Forgotten Survival Skills Your Great Grandparents Used Everyday

Our modern society is highly dependent upon the “system.” Not only do we rely upon utility services to bring us electricity, water and natural gas, but also on an incredibly complex supply chain which provides us with everything from food to computers. Without that supply chain, most of us wouldn’t know what to do.

This situation is actually becoming worse, rather than better. When I compare my generation (I’m in my 50s) to that of my children, I see some striking differences. In my generation it was normal for a boy to grow up learning how to do a wide variety of trade skills from his father, and seemingly everyone knew how to do basic carpentry and mechanic work. But that’s no longer normal.

 

Who is Afraid of Conspiracy Theories?

The term conspiracy theory did not exist as a phrase in everyday conversation before 1964. The conspiracy theory label entered the lexicon of political speech as a catchall for criticisms of the Warren Commission’s conclusion that US President Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman with no assistance from, or foreknowledge by any element of the United States government. Since then, the term’s prevalence and range of application have exploded. In 1964, the year the Warren Commission issued its report, the New York Times published five stories in which conspiracy theory appeared. In
