Truth or Deception: New Report Exposes How Industry Front Groups are Spending Millions to Shape the Story of Food

Organic and non-GMO food sales are skyrocketing as more and more people are choosing healthier, more sustainable food produced without synthetic pesticides, GMOs or the routine use of antibiotics and added hormones. Rather than respond to changing market demands by shifting the way they do business, many large food and agrochemical companies are using tobacco-style PR tactics to mislead the public and attack the organic food industry to try to win back skeptical consu

Yellen may have just gotten her excuse: Ex-Fed Gov. Lindsey

The spiraling Greek debt crisis might just be the cover the U.S. central bank, led by Janet Yellen, has been looking for to put off increasing interest rates, former Fed Gov. Larry Lindsey said Tuesday.

“They are going to use this as another reason to delay,” argued Lindsey, also director of the National Economic Council for President George W. Bush. “The problem is all the [rate hike] delays haven’t solved anything.”

Major Geologic movement in Ontario Canada — Methane Gas Geyser bursts from the ground

A large burst of naturally occurring methane has occurred in Lambton Shores, Ontario Canada, located about 80 miles Northeast of Detroit near the Michigan border along the shores of Lake Huron.

Appearing more like a violent geyser eruption at Yellowstone super-volcano, this large emission of methane caught locals off guard — as this is not ‘normal’ by any means.

Officials are saying this is a ‘natural’ burst of gas from the ground, and have issued a local state of emergency – warning people to keep away from the area.

And it is a source of great friendship to the countless Jews who believe our liberation is inextricably tied to Palestinian liberation. Speaking is not enough, only courageous actions can help us create the conditions for a lasting and just peace.

Gaza: The hijacking of The Marianne by “The Pirates of the Mediterranean”

The “international community” is, it would seem, remarkably selective over piracy.

Concern over Somali pirates was such that foreign Navy’s were sent to protect shipping in international waters. In one incident three alleged pirates were killed and a Somali teenager spirited away to the US to be tried, whilst eleven others were sent for trial in Kenya.

However, in the early hours of the morning (local time) of 29th June, three Israeli Navy ships intercepted and hijacked a Swedish flagged ship, the Marianne av Göteborg on route to Gaza in the State of Palestine (recognized as a State by the United Nations on 30th November 2012 by an overwhelming vote of 138-9, elevating Palestine to Non-Member Observer State a status bestowed on just one other entity, The Vatican.)

On Greece and Europe: What is Called “Negotiation” is a Demand for Total Surrender

What is called “negotiation” is in reality a demand for total surrender. The Troika’s demand is to force Syriza to go back on the campaign promises that it made to voters who replaced the old right-wing Pasok (“socialist”) and Conservative New Democracy coalition, or else simply apply the austerity program to which that coalition had agreed:cutbacks in pensions, deeper austerity, more privatization selloffs, and a tax shift off business onto labor. In short, economic suicide.

 

 

‘New demands on Iran – deliberate stumbling blocks’

All sort of things in these negotiations are going on behind the scenes, not only between the P5+1 and Iran but between the Western allies as well.

Additional demands on Iran at the nuclear talks put forward by France are basically impossible to fulfill; it’s unlikely that they were made without the full knowledge and approval of the US, says political commentator Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich.

 

 

IMF and USA set to ruin Ghana

Just ten years ago, Ghana had the most reliable electricity supply in all of Africa and the highest percentage of households connected to the grid in all of Africa – including South Africa. The Volta River Authority, the power producer and distributor was, in my very considerable experience, the best run and most efficient public utility in all of Africa. Indeed it was truly world class, and Ghana was proud of it.

Obviously the sight of truly successful public owned and run enterprise was too much of a threat to the neo-liberal ideologues of the IMF and World Bank. When Ghana needed some temporary financial assistance (against a generally healthy background) the IMF insisted that VRA be broken up. Right wing neoliberal dogma was applied to the Ghanaian electricity market. Electricity was separated between production and distribution, and private sector Independent Power Producers introduced.

The result is disaster.

 

 

Russia: Tit for Tat – Israel Shamir.

Obama: Inadequate Nuclear Program Verification to Halt Talks With Iran

Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers, including Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany, agreed to extend the joint plan of action on Tehran’s nuclear program until July 7 to allow more time for a comprehensive solution earlier on Tuesday.
“If we can’t provide assurances that the pathways for Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon are closed, and if we can’t verify that, if the verification regime is inadequate then we are not going to get a deal,” Obama said.

“I will walk away from the negotiations if, in fact it is a bad deal.”

Obama appears to be channeling his Master, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, and right on cue.

Folks, what is going on here is creation of the illusion that US government is being an honest broker in these negotiations, when in fact, right now, it is engineering these talks to fail.

The US government is asserting many aspects of the deal as being true, when they are not, such as complete access to all Iran’s military sites, and consistent conversations with Iran’s nuclear scientists, two very sticky demands to which the Iranian government feels they cannot concede,and to which they have never agreed.

Netanyahu wants a war against Iran, to “neutralize’ this country, and prepare it for regime change; of course, he will not send the IDF to accomplish this.

What Netanyahu wants is for our American kids in uniform to be killed and maimed for life in such a military confrontation, in the name of Israeli hegemony.

And of course, there is the 500 lb gorilla, draped comfortably over the Bechstein piano in this conference room, and that is Russia.

Both Russian military and civilian leadership have stated, very emphatically, that should Iran be attacked militarily, that they will come to its aid.

I would strongly caution those few adults in the room in the bowels of power in DC, that such an attack against Iran, involving Russia military, is not the highest and best use of US military power at this moment in world history.

We have seen how “brilliantly ” the wars against Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, and Iraq have gone.

On top of that, after all the lies stated to justify these wars, the American public doesn’t believe anything the current administration, NATO, or the American military has to say about what a good idea it would be to go to war against (fill in the blank).

Ladies and gentlemen in Congress, you, the State Department, and the White House have a problem with the American people; and that problem is having absolutely zero credibility at this moment.

So instead of shilling for how great yet another war would be for this country, I would like to politely suggest that you need to invest in some confidence building exercises…like telling the American people the truth.

Of course, I know, THAT…would be logical.

And truth DOES get in the way of your litany/narrative justification for more endless wars, doesn’t it.

 

 

China starts work on 3,968-km long gas pipeline with Russia

Craig Murray: official line of a lone gunman in Tunisian attack is a lie.

I knew with certainty that the BBC and official line of a lone gunman being responsible for the Tunisian attacks was a lie, because one of the victims of one of the “other” gunmen was my dear niece Kirsty.

We had a terrible day of the attack, because for hours Kirsty was simply missing. I was the whole day on the phone to the FCO and Tunisian authorities, and we feared the worst. My brothers Neil (Kirsty’s dad) and Stuart managed to get out to Tunisia that very day. The only thought that we had was Kirsty’s safety. Thankfully she has been (strange to say in the circumstances) miraculously lucky in the path of the bullets. Many others were less fortunate. Radley also was less fortunate. I know how the families must feel of others, and there are some who even now are suffering the agony of no confirmation of disappeared relatives. 12 hours of that were bad enough.

 

 

Europe Will Soon Impose Border Controls

Europe is imposing capital controls… next up will be border controls.

Why border controls? Well in truth, it was all about the money… specifically, physical cash. As we’ve noted before… with the vast majority of the global financial system based on digital money… the minute a significant number of depositors try to move their money OUT of a bank and INTO physical cash, the whole system can collapse.

Watch for the same thing to happen here, ultimately, as a method of stemming financial contagion, if things get too bad financially.

Activists Plan to Burn American Flags in New York City Ahead of Fourth of July

A group calling for the immediate disarmament of the New York Police Department plans to burn American flags in a Brooklyn park on Wednesday, just days before the Fourth of July holiday.

“Disarm NYPD” announced the “Burn the American Flags” event on Facebook, inviting individuals to join the organization at Fort Greene Park to “set fire to this symbol of oppression.”

Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an “isolated actor,” but a “product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.” The event originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes.

“There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all.”

There are several questions which come to mind on this, and the first is: who is paying for these flags to be burned?!?

And the second question is, should these protests go national, and get horrifically violent, who benefits?!?

I really have to very soberly think that the greatest benefactor for such actions would be the Federal Government itself, because a national curfew could be imposed, followed by the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, coupled with the invocation of martial law.

And this administration would dearly love to be in a position to do this.

Why?!? Because world financial conditions will impact the American economy horrifically, with it looking like Greece, Puerto Rico, and Ukraine defaulting, all at approximately the same time.

What we saw yesterday on the stock markets may well be a harbinger of things to come.

The US government is very keen to start wars with Russia and China, to prevent the upswing of the ruble and yuan against the dollar.

With no First Amendment protection available, we cannot protest against either these wars, nor the reintroduction of the draft (and legislation for that, which will draft both our young men and women, has been sitting in the House Armed Services Committee for at least the last two years, until the “Right emotional moment” comes, where the House and senate believe that the American people will sign off on it)

Please be smart about how you protest, and do not give this Administration the reasons it wants to invoke martial law.

Yes, I know that the Supreme Court made flag burning protected free speech; but you can still be charged with a misdemeanor.

Anyone who wants to protest this weekend, please do it peacefully.

And remember; the stinky kid advocating property destruction, or the hurting of anyone of your brothers and sisters who are also protesting with you, is most likely a government operative, hoping to inflame the angers which exist into becoming full on riot conditions.

 

 

MSM Goes Full Retard On Independence Day False Flag

 

 

The next Greece may be in the U.S

When Chicago Public Schools announced on June 24 that it would borrow $1 billion to make a $600 million-plus pension payment due June 30 an eerie feeling spread across bond investors and taxpayers alike.

It was the same feeling that gripped investors when Moody’s Investors Service downgraded Chicago’s credit rating to junk based almost entirely on the city’s pension problems.

The fear was that elevated pension costs, in cities like Chicago, might push these public entities into insolvency, wiping out much of the holdings of municipal-bond investors.

Once a sleepy corner of the municipal bond market — often not even properly reflected on cities’ balance sheets — public pensions have recently turned into the biggest headache for taxpayers and municipal-bond investors, threatening to bring down the finances of U.S. cities and states.

In some places, like Puerto Rico, Illinois, New Jersey and Chicago, entire balance sheets of cities or states hang in the balance.

 

 

16 Facts About The Tremendous Financial Devastation That We Are Seeing All Over The World

As we enter the second half of 2015, financial panic has gripped most of the globe. Stock prices are crashing in China, in Europe and in the United States. Greece is on the verge of a historic default, and now Puerto Rico and Ukraine are both threatening to default on their debts if they do not receive concessions from their creditors. Not since the financial crisis of 2008 has so much financial chaos been unleashed all at once. Could it be possible that the great financial crisis of 2015 has begun?

Things have been relatively quiet in the financial world for so long that many have been sucked into a false sense of security.

But the underlying imbalances were always there, and they have been getting worse over time.

I believe that we are heading into a global financial collapse that will make what happened in 2008 look like a Sunday picnic by the time it is all said and done.

To all our readers/listeners; I would never want to be characterized as “Mrs. Chicken Little of Oahu, 2015, but I can tell you this: something wicked this way comes.

Whether it is a major collapse of the US economy, or a world war, began by a US government, which will be engineered as a distraction from a collapse of the US economy, I do not know.

But as always, we advise prudence in favor of freaking out.

Make sure that you have no more funds in the bank than are absolutely needed to pay your bills.

Make sure to have extra storable food, potable water, and medications for your family, and your pets.

Create a bug-out plan, and figure out how much flexibility your children’s schools have, if you are seeing a state of emergency coming, and feel you need to get your kids out of school quickly.

Have some amounts of silver in your possession; if the dollar craters completely, that will most likely become a medium of exchange, because it is solid.

Find people with whom you can barter skills and services, and develop a community of like-minded people with whom you would feel comfortable.

Phalanx of Philadelphia Cops Arrest and Assault Crying-Toddler-Holding Guy For Evading $2.25 Fare and Did We Mention He’s Black?

Now that we’ve offered at least some legal protections to gay and sick people, maybe it’s time to safeguard black people still being daily terrorized by blue people with a sick sense of entitlement. Case in point: Philadelphia’s burly mob of both transit and street cops – tellingly, black and white – who set upon a black dad carrying his baby daughter, grabbing him by the throat, slamming him into a wall and arresting him after he allegedly failed to pay his $2.25 subway fare. When surreal video of the encounter surfaced and quickly went viral, it was first reported that Ellis Smith had failed to pay his daughter’s fare, and outrage centered on the fact that kids under four are free so huh? Then it was reported police had approached Smith for evading his own fare, a “crime” targeted in a recent crackdown.

Netanyahu insisted that “preventing entry by sea was done in accordance with international law and even received backing from a committee of the UN Secretary General.”

“Israel is the only democracy that defends itself in accordance with international law,” Netanyahu insisted, adding that “there is no siege on Gaza.”

‘Britain to send fence to France to block migrants’

Britain is reportedly set to build a 2-mile fence at the Channel Tunnel to stop migrants from boarding UK-bound trains.

Home Secretary Theresa May has said she wanted to send a “very clear message” that people will not be able to get through to the UK through this, the Daily Mail reported.

She said, “We are working very closely with the French authorities on this issue. We have been doing a number of things to increase security around the port.

“We are making a number of changes at Calais to increase security, we’re also going to be putting some extra security fencing at Coquelle at the entrance to the Tunnel.”

The report says migrants have been trying to hide in vehicles waiting to board Channel Tunnel services at Coquelles and at the ferry port of Calais.

Translation of this message, from the UK and France, to desperate immigrants: “Kill your children first, then yourselves next: we will incinerate your bones and use them for soil enrichment!”*

*Due to the recent bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) crisis in the European beef industry, the use of animal-derived products to feed cattle is now severely restricted. Large quantities of waste animal meat and bone meal (MBM), also known as animal flour, have to be safely disposed of or transformed. One disposal option is pyrolysis. Vacuum pyrolysis of an animal flour sample has been performed in a laboratory reactor. The results obtained revealed that vacuum pyrolysis can be an attractive alternative to incineration and cement kilns. The process generated a combustible gas (15.1 wt %), a high calorific value oil (35.1 wt %), a solid residue rich in minerals (39.1 wt %), and an aqueous phase rich in organics (10.7 wt %). The gas and the aqueous phase can be used to provide heat to the vacuum pyrolysis reactor and the MBM drying unit. The oil can be used alone or mixed with petroleum products as a fuel in boilers or gas turbines. Conversion of animal waste by pyrolysis into fuels can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases. It is suggested to use the solid residue for agricultural soil enrichment in minerals and as a soil moisturizer.

To the leadership of the UK and France; some of these people cannot possibly go home, because they will be tortured and killed; others are trying to escape crushing poverty and corrupt governments at home.

And THIS policy is your most “compassionate answer” to their pain?!?

Please think again, leadership of the UK and France: you can do better than this.

Washington man given less than 2 gallons of water while jailed 13 days over bad check — and now he’s dead

ashington man starved to death while jailed 13 days over a bad check.

An autopsy showed that Keaton Farris died April 7 of dehydration and malnutrition after nearly two weeks in the Island County Jail, reported Natives in America.

Relatives hired a detective to investigate his death, and they learned two months later that jail employees refused to offer medical treatment to Farris or provide medication for his bipolar disorder.

They also found the 25-year-old Farris was denied even the minimum amount of water needed for human survival after guards shut it off to prevent him from flooding his cell.

The investigation revealed Farris had been given just 185 ounces of water, or about a gallon and a half, while incarcerated – far below the 1,563 ounces recommended under National Institute of Health guidelines.

This is what happens to mentally ill people in the US; rather than being places in a psychiatric hospital where he really belonged, he was thrown in jail, and died there.

Had he received proper treatment, he might have survived. But of course, public funds for psychiatric hospitals are nearly non-existent in this country; so people who desperately need psychiatric services are considered completely expendable by the local and federal authorities.

Mr. Farris was, obviously, one of those people.

 

 

Brazil Supports Setting Common BRICS Currency

This is Wall Street’s worst nightmare. The emergence of a global currency not under their control!

 

 

YOUR DAILY DOSE OF BOOGA BOOGA! July 4 terrorist attack on U.S. soil a legitimate threat, officials warn

U.S. intelligence officials and lawmakers are worried that chatter about a terrorist attack on U.S. soil this Fourth of July may be more than just talk.

The FBI has arrested at least 10 U.S. citizens in three weeks who were plotting various attacks on the homeland on behalf of the Islamic State group, and the Department of Homeland Security issued a joint bulletin with the FBI last week putting local law enforcement agencies across the country on heightened alert.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re sitting here a week from today talking about an attack over the weekend in the United States,” former CIA Deputy Director Michael J. Morell said Monday on “CBS This Morning.” “That’s how serious this is.”

CIA, FBI, and DHS are all wagging “Islamic terror” (Reg. Trademark The White House) at us as hard as they can. Best interpretation; they are trying to distract us all from financial melt-downs in Greece, Puerto Rico, France, Detroit, etc. Worst interpretation; they are planning a false-flag attack to goad Americans into more wars on those pesky nations that refuse to be part of the American Money-Junkie Empire.

But …

If there is a big bang over the Fourth that is not an intentional firework, all it will tell the American people is that this massive domestic spy system really doesn’t work to protect us from acts of terror, and we should demand NSA, CIA, FBI, all be scrapped and restore the Bill of Rights in its entirety!

 

 

‘Dead wrong about the Bible': Portland pastor annihilates Christians who use religion to push bigotry

In a commentary for the Huffington Post, an Oregon minister makes a biblical case for gay marriage — and scolds politicians who campaign on homophobia.

“With its historic ruling on Marriage Equality Friday,” writes Adam Phillips, pastor at Christ Church: Portland, “the U.S. Supreme Court finally caught up to the movement of the Holy Spirit. That’s right. I said it.”

“I am an evangelical Christian pastor (and proud of it),” Phillips continues, “and I believe that the freedom bell of love and justice just pealed a little louder and the arc of history is bent a little closer to justice.”

Phillips specifically calls our Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee, Christian presidential candidates who vocally oppose marriage rights for couples of the same gender.

 

 

Test Pilot Admits the F-35 Can’t Dogfight

A test pilot has some very, very bad news about the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The pricey new stealth jet can’t turn or climb fast enough to hit an enemy plane during a dogfight or to dodge the enemy’s own gunfire, the pilot reported following a day of mock air battles back in January.

“The F-35 was at a distinct energy disadvantage,” the unnamed pilot wrote in a scathing five-page brief that War Is Boring has obtained. The brief is unclassified but is labeled “for official use only.”

The test pilot’s report is the latest evidence of fundamental problems with the design of the F-35?—?which, at a total program cost of more than a trillion dollars, is history’s most expensive weapon.

The Russians and Chinese are building weapons, while the US military industrial complex builds profit-centers (that just happen to have wings, hulls, or treads!

ICELAND HANDS CORRUPT BANKERS PRISON SENTENCES OF UP TO FOUR YEARS AND SIX MONTHS

Six defendants in the Kaupþing market manipulation case, the biggest case of this type in Iceland’s history, have been handed prison sentences ranging from one year to four years and six months.

By fully financing share purchases with no other surety than the shares themselves, the bank was accused of giving a false and misleading impression of demand for Kaupþingi shares by means of deception and pretence.

Former Director of Kaupþing, Ingólfur Helgason, is to be jailed for four years and six months.

To the Greek leadership: may I suggest to you the “Icelandic Option” as a way out of the current economic crisis.

  1. Repudiate the odious debt, which was never approved by the Greek people.
    2. Charge the crooked bankers and politicians who put Greece into this mess with their crimes, have them tried and convicted by a jury of their peers, and jailed for an appropriate length of time.

You way also want to examine, very seriously, just how well the Icelandic did after making those choices.

 

 

Letter signed by 22 senators urges Obama to support Israel

Nearly one-quarter of the U.S. Senate signed on to a bipartisan letter urging President Barack Obama to support Israel around the world.

Twenty-two senators signed the letter, which was written “in response to your welcomed recent remarks at Congregation Adas Israel” on May 22 concerning his commitment to Israel’s security. The letter was sponsored by Sens. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

While welcoming Obama’s “unwavering commitment” to Israel’s security, the signers also want the Obama administration to remain committed to the United States’ “long-standing policy” of negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians as the way to peace.

The letter specifically asked the administration to oppose Palestinian efforts for membership in the United Nations and other international bodies.

How nice that everything is running so well in our country that those Senators have nothing better to do than worry about Israel and Palestine, and work towards peace by blocking Palestinian statehood wherever they can!

Dear Senators, if you love Israel that much, kindly move there and vacate your office for someone concerned with America and Americans!

 

 

FLASHBACK June 12 – Deutsche Bank CEOs “Shown Door” – World’s Largest Holder of Derivatives In Trouble?

In the past year Deutsche, like many international banks, have been found to have been engaged in a slew of corrupt practices from manipulation of interest rates, for which the firm was fined $2.5 billion in April, to tax evasion and money laundering to “mis-selling” of derivatives.

Deutsche Bank’s derivatives position is truly enormous. It was recently estimated to be around $54 trillion. Germany’s GDP, the fourth largest in the world, was a mere $3.64 trillion in 2015. Were Deutsche Bank caught off-side in its derivatives positions there is not a government or institution on earth that could bail it out and it could lead to contagion in the German financial system and indeed in the global financial system.

Greece Over the Brink

It has been obvious for some time that the creation of the euro was a terrible mistake.

U.S. WILL RESUME SENDING WEAPONS TO BAHRAIN DESPITE ONGOING REPRESSION

The State Department announced it will lift its freeze on arms sales to the repressive government of Bahrain on Monday, despite the country’s myriad human rights abuses in recent years, including arbitrary detention of children, torture, restrictions for journalists and a brutal government crackdown on peaceful protestors in 2011.

“The Administration has decided to lift the holds on security assistance to the Bahrain Defense Force and National Guard that were implemented following Bahrain’s crackdown on demonstrations in 2011,” wrote John Kirby, a State Department spokesperson, in a press release on Monday.

‘“We do not think that the human rights situation in Bahrain is adequate,” the State Department said.’

(Sigh) I am having an industrial strength, palm to forehead moment, at velocity, upon reading this.

And State Department Spokesperson John Kirby, I have a bone to pick with you.

If the human rights situation is adjudged by the State Department as “inadequate”, WHY THE FLIP ARE WE SENDING THE AL KHALIFA REGIME WEAPONS WITH WHICH IT CAN TORTURE AND KILL THEIR OWN PEOPLE WITH IMPUNITY?!?

But, then again, human rights in foreign countries are encouraged by the US government… only when they are convenient.

And Bahrain is home to the Navy’s 5th fleet, which means that honoring the observance of human rights in such a place is both monumentally inconvenient, and incompatible with US hegemony.

The people in the Middle East do not hate us because we are free; they hate us for killing family and friends in extrajudicial assassinations; they hate us for supporting tin pot dictators, with money and guns, because these leaders are “our thugs”, no matter how grim the situation is for the people of these countries; they hate us for torture, which still goes on today under President Obama’s watch.

And if you don’t believe it, please be aware that this Administration is having hunger strikers at Gitmo force fed, not as a form of keeping them alive, but as a form of punishment for doing the only thing they can do in protest, as many of them held for over 11 years without a hearing or court date.

The late President Kennedy said it best: “When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable”.

And when the Kingdom of Bahrain ultimately successfully changes leadership (however that happens), I will be willing to bet you that, because of US the government’s stumbling, bumbling attempt to shore up a completely corrupt regime, that Bahrain will become one of the most vehemently anti-American countries in the Middle East.

And if I, as a plain, average citizen can see this coming, why can’t the US government?!?

Apparently, one of the most prized criteria for hiring anyone to work for the last two administrations is that of not being able to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion.

I would politely suggest that this might be a monumental problem, both domestically, and internationally, for this country.

Jewish Lord Faces British Child Sex Charges

British prosecutors said on Monday an aging Jewish member of the House of Lords would now face criminal action over accusations of serious historical child sex crimes after they overturned an earlier decision following anger from alleged victims.

Lord Greville Janner, 86, a former Labour member of parliament and ex-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, is accused of more than 20 offenses on former residents of children’s homes in the 1970s and 1980s.

In April, Alison Saunders, Britain’s Director of Public Prosecutions said there was evidence to bring charges against Janner, who has always denied any wrongdoing, over 16 allegations of indecent assaults and six other counts.

But she said he was not fit to plead or give evidence because he was suffering from severe dementia and so a trial could not take place.

 

 

Australia’s New Law Would Strip Citizenship For Possessing A ‘Thing’ Connected With Terrorism, Or Whistleblowing

Things seem to be going from bad to worse in Australia. In April, it brought in mandatory data retention, and last week its own version of SOPA finally became law. Now the Australian government is working on another awful piece of legislation: a bill to revoke the citizenship of those holding dual nationality if they are “involved in terrorism.” A column in The Sydney Morning Herald gives a few examples of what that dangerously elastic concept might mean in practice:

Citizenship would automatically be stripped from a person convicted of entering an area declared to be a no-go zone by the Australian government. This would occur even if the person has entered that area for innocent purposes, such as to do business, visit friends or undertake a religious pilgrimage. The same result would follow for a person convicted of damaging Commonwealth property or possessing a ‘thing’, such as a book or downloaded file from the Internet, that is in some way connected with terrorism.

Big money: pump and dump as a way of life

Let’s start with the analogy of the stock market. To boil it down, here is how the game is played by insiders:

They acquire many, many shares of a stock and then they push the price up, up, up, and then they create a top, crash it, sending the stock price off a cliff to a dismal bottom.

They profit greatly on the way up (pump), and then, selling short (dump), they pile up more profits on the way down.

Getting away with it is like having a license to print money…

 

 

‘Jewish cow’ is udderly superior to all other cows in the world, Netanyahu says

Top 4 employment sectors in the United States pay $10 an hour or less: The uneven recovery being led by low wage labor.

It is hard to believe but we are now “officially” six years into this recovery. For most Americans, it doesn’t feel anything like a recovery and that label appears to be a misnomer. Americans need only look at their paychecks and the cost of living to realize that yes, things are getting tougher. There appears to be a global race to the bottom when it comes to wages. Most of the jobs added since the recovery hit have come in the form of low wage service sector jobs with scant benefits, if any. The top four employment sectors in the United States are all in the service sector and all pay $10 an hour or less. The math begins to get murky because you have so many older Americans depending on Social Security as their primary source of retirement income while our young labor force is earning less and therefore paying smaller amounts into the Social Security pool. The recovery has been very uneven and when we look at the numbers today, we continue to find that the trend is continuing.

France says the name ‘ISIS’ is offensive, will call it ‘Daesh’ instead

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a bit of a misnomer, says France, as it lends the imprimatur of Islam to a group that the vast majority of Muslims finds despicable. “This is a terrorist group and not a state. I do not recommend using the term Islamic State because it blurs the lines between Islam, Muslims, and Islamists,” France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said in a statement. “The Arabs call it ‘Daesh’ and I will be calling them the ‘Daesh cutthroats.'”

The name Daesh, according to France24, is a “loose acronym” for “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (al-Dawla al-Islamiya al-Iraq al-Sham).

Sham would be a far better term.

The American Worker: Crushed Again by the Overwhelming Power of Corporatism

The American worker, already hemorrhaging from corporate administered beatings over several decades, has just received what may be a knockout punch by President Obama and his team of corporate bullies who have combined their power to successfully force Fast Track legislation for the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement) through Congress.

BOND INSURERS CRASH, HIT BY PUERTO RICO’S DEFAULT SHRAPNEL

On Monday, Puerto Rico’s government released a report that gave the municipal bond market the willies.

he single most telling statistic in Puerto Rico is that only 40% of the adult population – versus 63% on the US mainland – is employed or looking for work; the rest are economically idle or working in the grey economy. In an economy with an abundance of unskilled labor, the reasons boil down to two.

– Employers are disinclined to hire workers because (a) the US federal minimum wage is very high relative to the local average (full-time employment at the minimum wage is equivalent to 77% of per capita income, versus 28% on the mainland) and a more binding constraint on employment (28% of hourly workers in Puerto Rico earn $8.50 or less versus only 3% on the mainland); and (b) local regulations pertaining to overtime, paid vacation, and dismissal are costly and more onerous than on the US mainland.

This situation is completely unsustainable, as are the economic realities both Greece, and Ukraine, which will most likely default in 3 weeks, give or take.

 

 

US Admits Paying Terrorists For Services Rendered In Syria

When researchers such as myself have reported that the United States is funding al-Qaeda, Nusra, ISIS and other related terror organizations in Syria, we were not kidding. Still, despite the fact that even the U.S. government itself has admitted that it was funding terrorists– directly and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the suggestion was met with disbelief, ridicule, or either entirely ignored.

Now, however, the United States government has admitted that it funds terrorists on the ground in Syria yet again, this time placing an individual dollar amount on the assistance provided.

France’s Fabius says three conditions still not met for Iran deal

“For this there are three indispensable conditions: a lasting limitation of Iran’s research and development capacity, a rigorous inspection of sites, including military if needed, and the third condition is the automatic return of sanctions in case it violates its commitments.”

France is now doing Israel’s dirty work for them! Iran has never agreed to inspections of non-nuclear military sites (despite claims they did so in the original framework). And non-nuclear military sites are irrelevant in the context of this being a deal about nuclear weapons. The other automatic deal-breaker is the threat that sanctions can be returned in an instant if anyone (like Israel or even just a stockbroker selling Iranian stocks short) makes any unfounded accusation about Iran at all.

Fund Manager Warns Puerto Rico Default May Trigger A “Black Swan” Derivatives Melt-Down

It is highly probable that the crashing stocks of MBIA, AMBAC and AGO are the alarm bells of a black swan landing. And, of course, no one has been talking about them…. until today.

Although these firms are somewhat obscure and small compared to the size of the majority of financial companies, they are highly leveraged with massive off-balance-sheet liabilities for which they have zero hope of covering in the event of even relatively small bond defaults.

In other words, these firms are the ones most likely to set off the next financial collapse triggered by their counterparty defaults.

Gary Hart: America’s Founding Principles Are in Danger of Corruption

Four qualities have distinguished republican government from ancient Athens forward: the sovereignty of the people; a sense of the common good; government dedicated to the commonwealth; and resistance to corruption. Measured against the standards established for republics from ancient times, the American Republic is massively corrupt.

What brought us to this? A sinister system combining staggering campaign costs, political contributions, political action committees, special interest payments for access, and, most of all, the rise of the lobbying class.

Worst of all, the army of lobbyists that started relatively small in the mid-twentieth century has now grown to big battalions of law firms and lobbying firms of the right, left, and an amalgam of both. And that gargantuan, if not reptilian, industry now takes on board former members of the House and the Senate and their personal and committee staffs. And they are all getting fabulously rich.

 

 

Cameron threatens RAF bombing raids against Islamic State in Syria: PM says response in wake of Tunisian beach massacre must involve ‘military solutions’

So, the purpose of the Tunisia false-flag was to escalate the conquest of Syria and the breakup of Iraq!

Why Israel Declared 18 Dairy Cows a National Security Risk

Within six months, the whole town had turned to the local dairy for its milk, dubbed “Intifada milk.” The self-made dairymen delivered it by night so Israeli soldiers wouldn’t see it. One day an Israeli soldier came to the farm, took photos of the cows, and told the Palestinians they weren’t allowed to have the cows and gave them 24 hours to shut it down. He said the cows were a threat to Israel’s national security. Amer Shomali thinks he knows why.

“For the Palestinians, it meant a step closer to being free, to be able to decide their future, to be independent. Basically that was what was the security threat for Israel. It’s not the cow itself. It’s what the cow represents: a step toward independence.”

The goal for Israel was to keep the Palestinians dependent on Israeli dairies, for both economic and political gain. We see the same thing happening here in the US with the government forcing us to remain dependent on favored corporations, for economic and political gain.

The secret projects of Israël and Saudi Arabia

No-one in the Middle East seems to be aware that the secret agreements which should be signed on the 30th June 2015 by Washington and Teheran – on the fringe of the multilateral agreements concerning nuclear power – will probably set the rules of the game for the next ten years.

These agreements arrive at a moment when the United States have become the world’s first producers of petrol, ahead of Saudi Arabia and Russia. Consequently they do not need Middle-Eastern petrol for themselves, and are only interested in it as a means of maintaining the world market in dollars.

FLASHBACK 1999 – “It’s not ‘Regime Change’ America wants, but ‘Region Change.’”: Historic Interview With Tariq Aziz

Tariq Aziz doesn’t hide his anger and frustration when speaking of his country’s plight:

“This is a region of conflicts, upheavals, revolutions, but this is the first time such rigid and comprehensive sanctions have been imposed anywhere.

“Prior to the embargo we had a high standard of free education from primary school to university and free health care. But one cannot live alone in the world. Nations need to trade, to buy and sell. There has been a sharp deterioration in health, social services, electricity, clean water.”

Seated in his Baghdad office, Iraq’s Deputy Prime Minister lists countless further examples of the misery inflicted by sanctions, from how the collapse of the Dinar has slashed the income of once well paid professionals to the equivalent of $3 a month, to the way the world’s former number one date producer is prohibited from selling its crop.

The recently released United Nations report on the 2014 war in Gaza meticulously documents last summer’s horror. The reports of Israeli executions of Palestinians, Israel’s aerial assaults on Palestinians in their homes in Gaza and other aspects of the assault have attracted the most attention.

But the UN report also highlights what it calls “widespread human rights violations” by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem during the time period it examines. These violations ran the gamut from a sweeping campaign of arrests of those Israel claimed were tied to Hamas, torture of detainees, killings of protesters and punitive home demolitions.

If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it…. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information.

A gang of wolves comes for Greece

Principally Germany which has no interest in rethinking how the EU operates, since it serves German interests so well, but also the most powerful European institution: the European Central Bank (ECB).

As of Saturday, June 27, it is clear what Syriza was up against.

Why Russian-Made Submarines Are Set to Dominate Asian Waters

Asian nations are expanding their submarine fleets at breakneck speed, coinciding with a major comeback by Russia’s undersea boats.
China, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Bangladesh are existing or prospective customers for Russian-made diesel-electrics.
Moscow is making a high-octane entry into the huge export market, with advanced diesel-electric submarines. As well as being silent, stealthy and armed with the world’s deadliest missiles, Russian submarines are often the vessel of choice for an increasing number of navies, especially in cash-rich Asia.
According to David Isenberg of Asia Times, “Russian submarines’ unique capabilities and powerful armament are the two major attractions for foreign customers. In underwater duel modelling, Russian Kilo-class submarines invariably emerged the winner in virtual competition against German, French and Dutch submarines.”

State Duma speaker compares G7 summit in Bavaria with Munich Pact

Speaker of Russia’s State Duma Sergey Naryshkin has likened the recent G7 summit in Bavaria to the 1938 Munich Agreement, during which Western countries de facto endorsed the beginning of Czechoslovakia’s seizure by Nazi Germany.
“The forum in Moscow was held publicly, with a positive agenda. What the G7 leaders in Bavaria discussed is unknown, the meeting was held practically behind closed doors, only the photo session was public,” the head of the lower house of the Russian parliament said.
“This brings to mind another historic meeting, which took place in Bavaria in 1938. We all remember that it got its ominous name – the ‘Munich Conspiracy.’ Unfortunately, far from everyone draws necessary lessons from history,” Naryshkin said.

 

 

Russian Railways, Defence Ministry to build railroad section bypassing Ukraine — source

Russian Railways (RZD) and Russia’s Defence Ministry have signed a deal on constructing a two-way electrified railway line bypassing Ukraine, a source in the company told TASS on Tuesday.
Under the deal, which was inked on June 25, the railway line will be built between Zhuravka, in the Voronezh region, and Millerovo, in the Rostov region.
The construction works will be performed by the Defence Ministry, while the Russian Railways will act as a customer.
“This concerns implementing works on the erection of the formation on the section between the 11th and 31st kilometers,” the source said.

 

 

Dry grass on fire in Chernobyl exclusion zone — Ukraine’s emergencies service

Dry grass is on fire on the territory of a forestry complex near the site of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Ukraine’s emergencies service said on Tuesday, adding that the fire area is covering around 130 hectares.
The fire broke out at 17.10 p.m. (1410GMT) on Monday near the villages of Kovshilovka and Polesskoye in the flood plain of the Uzh River. The dry grass and bulrush started burning and the fire spread to the further area, the service said.
The firefighting effort involves 24 pieces of equipment and 117 personnel. A headquarters has been set up and a mobile task force has been deployed to deal with the fire.

 

 

US to work together with EU to prevent Grexit

US will work together with its European colleagues to prevent Greece’s default and exit from the euro zone, the White House press service said on Monday after talks between US President Barack Obama, French President Francois Hollande and UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
The leaders said their economic teams were in close contact and were monitoring developments in Greece and financial markets, the White House said.

 

 

Greece threatens to sue EU institutions to block country’s expulsion from euro zone

Greece may seek a court injunction against the EU institutions to block the country’s expulsion from the euro zone and stop suffocation of the Greek banking system by the European Central Bank, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said on Monday.
“The Greek government will make use of all out legal rights,” the Daily Telegraph cited Varoufakis as saying. “We are taking advice and will certainly consider an injunction at the European Court of Justice. The EU treaties make no provision for euro exit and we refuse to accept it. Our membership is not negotiable,” the finance minister said.

 

 

Europe blackmailing Greece, says minister in Athens

“The country has lived under the toughest imaginable pressure from European institutes in the past five months,” he said. “They’re forcing us to do the things they’d like us to do.”
“This unprecedented blackmail put us in the face of a choice, namely, either we accept what they recommend and what will put Greece to its knees and will destroy the remainders of our economy and society, or else we pull out of the euro area,” said Lafazanis, one of the leaders of the ruling Coalition of the Radical Left.
“But we didn’t accept this blackmail and told them we must ask our people whether or not it accepts blackmailing,” he said. “Hence we needed a referendum.”

Political roundup: Dangers for democracy in today’s cyber bullying law

Every MP, bar one, will vote this afternoon for a piece of legislation that seeks to protect those being “harmed” by material on the internet. But the Harmful Digital Communications Bill is being widely criticised as dangerous in the way it seeks to regulate online activities. So is online democracy under threat?

Could Patrick Gower be taken off the internet? Of course this is a ridiculous question – with many possible replies – yet it’s also a useful question posed by opponents of new cyber-bullying legislation that will be passed today in Parliament.

It was posed on Twitter by the biggest critic of the new bill, blogger No Right Turn (@norightturnnz), who tweeted to Gower “Did you know that if the harmful Digital Communications bill passes, your job will be illegal?” – see my blog post, Top tweets about the Harmful Digital Communications Bill.

 

 

Economist: Why cracks in China are more worrying for NZ than Greek nightmare

As extreme volatility plagues Chinese sharemarkets a top economist is warning that the cracks appearing within China’s economy are of much greater concern for New Zealand than Greece’s economic woes.

Almost US$1.25 trillion in value has been wiped off the Shanghai market since June 12. That’s nearly eight times New Zealand’s annual gross domestic product.

The Shanghai Composite Index fell by more than 5 per cent earlier today after plunging 3.3 per cent yesterday and 7.4 per cent on Friday.

It bounced back into positive territory this afternoon.

The index gained a massive 150 per cent in the year to June 12, but has retreated more than 20 per cent since then, meaning China has entered bear market territory.

“Russian aggression”—CBS provides a perfect example of imperial disinformation

Everything—and I mean that literally—everything in this item filed by CBS This Morning on 6.23.15, is false. The object is, as usual, to sell the almost completely clueless and habitually semi-indifferent American public the idea that Russia is the new Nazi Germany, with Putin as the new Fuhrer, rampaging across Europe and grabbing, insatiably, one hapless nation after another in his march toward the conquest of the…whole Free World!

Israel’s creation ‘direct rebellion’ against God: US rabbi

The creation of Israel by Zionist Jews in 1948 was a “direct rebellion” against God and contrary to the teachings of the Torah, an American orthodox rabbi says.

Anti-Gay Jewish Group Hires Mexican Laborers To Protest NYC Pride Parade

Hoping to persuade the jubilant masses of their iniquity, bearded Orthodox men donned their most prejudicial black robes and added some unintentional levity at yesterday’s Pride Parade. But the action was apparently 2 Hott for the littlest of God’s messengers.

The Times stumbled upon a group of Mexican laborers holding signs in a protest pen at Fifth Avenue and 15th Street (“Adam and Eve NOT Adam and Steve”).

But the men were not Jewish. They were Mexican laborers, protesting because they were paid to protest, said one of the men, who would not give his name.

Astroturfing is nothing new. But outsourcing bigotry?

FALSE FLAG ALERT: Craigslist Ad Asking for CRISIS ACTORS in Houston For JULY 4th

In a Craigslist ad posted about 17 days ago, our Federal Government is looking for crisis actors for July 4th through July 6th.

“We are looking for crisis actors for a government emergency drill between July 4-6th. Actors will be responsible for portraying different emergency scenarios in a simulated government terror drill. No experience is needed. Confidentiality agreements are required. Pay is $200. Please message for details.” ~Houston Craigslist

This isn’t the first time that they have advertised on Craigslist for “crisis actors” though. It seems to be a major deal, paying decent money if you can catch it before the post is removed from Craigslist. One such post even made the news on Infowars shortly before the LAX Shooting.

The ad has since been pulled.

Corporate interests have too often used their dubious ‘science’, lobbyists, political connections and presence within the heart of governments to subvert institutions set up to supposedly protect the public interest for their own commercial benefit. Once their power has been established, anyone who questions them or who stands in their way can expect a very bumpy ride.

The Greek Bank Holiday: This is What an Economic Collapse Looks Like

A “bank holiday” sounds like such an innocuous thing, doesn’t it? Playful, a well-deserved rest, maybe even fun.

If you’d like to learn more about the fun of such a holiday, look no further than the streets of Greece, where people have been informed the banks will be closed for the next week.

Why? Because the European Central Bank has stopped sending in the money that was keeping the Greek financial system afloat. Had people been able to go to the bank and withdraw their money, the banks would be unable to function. So, the banks said, “Nope, you can have $60 if you want to wait in line for long enough to get it.”

15 civilians dead as Saudi warplanes hit Yemen again

At least 15 civilians, including women and children, were killed and several others injured when Saudi fighter jets launched a fresh round of airstrikes against various areas in Yemen as Riyadh pushed ahead with its atrocious onslaught against its impoverished southern neighbor.

Saudi military aircraft conducted attacks against a residential area in Sarwah district of Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib, situated approximately 120 kilometers (74 miles) east of the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, on Monday. Nine members of a family lost their lives and three others sustained injuries, the Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.

Six civilians, among them two women and three children, were also killed as Saudi warplanes struck Shibam Kawkaban district in the western Yemeni province of al-Mahwit, situated 53 kilometers (29 miles) northwest of of Sana’a.

Has anyone bothered to remind the House of Saud, the Saudi Government, and its primary enabler in this carnage, the US government, that the killing of civilians is a war crime, under international law?!?!?

 

 

Turkey scrambles tanks to create ‘buffer zone’ on Syria border

Amid talk of a potential Turkish military intervention in Syria, the Turkish military is deploying tanks to the common border to create a “military buffer zone” there.

On Monday, Turkish armed forces began amassing near the Turkish border city of Sanliurfa, AFP reported.

The agency said Turkish officials were also discussing the potential intervention.

The planned buffer zone stretches 110 kilometers (68 miles) long and 28 kilometers (17 miles) wide between the southern Turkish towns of Karkamis and Oncupinar.

The forces are deploying opposite the border town of Kobani, AFP said.

Turkish daily Yeni Safak said Turkey had undertaken the measure to block possible advances by the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group and Kurdish groups.

“John Kerry, white courtesy telephone, please: paging John Kerry, white courtesy telephone, please!”

It is apparent that Edrogan hasn’t received the memo from Kerry about the Kurds in the region being part of the US’s defense against Isis.

This could be a real flustercluck in terms of US foreign policy in the region.

Supreme Court upholds lethal injections

The Supreme Court upheld by 5-4 the usage of a sedative called midazolam in drug cocktails used for death penalties in several states. Death row inmates argued the drug failed to block pain and suffering, leading to ‘cruel and unusual’ executions.

Justice Alito delivered the court’s opinion, joined by judges Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas and Chief Justice Roberts. According to the majority, it is “settled that capital punishment is constitutional,” and therefore there has to be a constitutional method of carrying it out.

In her dissent, Justice Sotomayor criticized the majority for accepting the District Court’s decision to “credit the scientifically unsupported and implausible testimony of a single expert witness,” and “faulting petitioners for failing to satisfy the wholly novel requirement of proving the availability of an alternative means for their own executions.”

I wish that states, and the Federal Government, were completely out of the business of chemical assassinations of condemned prisoners.

I am NOT soft on crime, but in the 21st century in this country, the fact that it is by far the poorer individuals accused of crimes,and saddled with overworked public defenders, rather than those who have the luxury of a “dream team” of defenders, who get sentenced to death, bothers me greatly.

Additionally, the way DNA is treated after an accused person is jailed, pending trial, is not consistent, and because of this, I would advocate for life with no parole, at hard labor for the worst of the worst. There needs to be a national standard for DNA testing and storing, to give those truly innocent a chance for acquittal.

Two weeks ago, with a decision inObergefell v. Hodges on the way, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah introduced the First Amendment Defense Act, which ensures that religious institutions won’t lose their tax exemptions if they don’t support same-sex marriage. Liberals tend to think Sen. Lee’s fears are unwarranted, and they can even point to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion in Friday’s case, which promises “that religious organizations and persons [will be] given proper protection.”

Greek banks will stay CLOSED tomorrow as British tourists are warned cash machines will become ‘limited at short notice’

Britain, The Empire of Evil, Pushes Genocide and World War

As Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip arrived Wednesday in Germany for a three-day visit, the truly Satanic nature of the British Empire was on full display.

The Paris conference is part of the propaganda assault, leading to the next ‘Copenhagen’ conference at the end of the year, also in Paris. The Worldwatch Institute, founded by Lester Brown, has just issued a report, demanding an end to all subsidies for fossil-fuel and nuclear power, as part of the drive for a total conversion to renewables like solar and wind power.

We Are All Greeks! Europe Only Has a Future With the New Silk Road

It’s not Greece which has failed, but rather Chancellor Merkel, Finance Minister Schäuble, the EU Commission, the European Central Bank, and the IMF. Why should the Greek government stick with the austerity measures demanded by the EU, which have already reduced the Greek economy by a third, lowered the birth rate, raised the death rate, and increased youth unemployment to 65%? A policy that even the IMF had to admit was completely incompetent, and that the UN expert on debt and human rights condemned as a clear violation of human rights? Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s decision not to capitulate to the “shock and awe” method of the Eurogroup’s Shylocks is not only correct, but offers the chance for all of Europe to break with the insanity of the casino economy, which only serves the interests of the banks and speculators—provided however, that Germany and other countries find the courage to mobilize Europe’s moral and intellectual strengths.

 

 

Newsday Editor: Carve Hate Speech Out Of First Amendment, Hold Websites Responsible If Users Post Hate Speech

It’s perfectly reasonable to be angered and horrified at ignorant, racist, bigoted hate speech. It’s perfectly reasonable to be concerned about those who spew such idiocy.

That a newspaper editor would advocate for such things seems particularly bizarre and counterproductive.

 

 

US, Japan Did Not Expect China-Led AIIB to Resonate With so Many Countries

Some 57 prospective founding nations signed a legal framework agreement in Beijing earlier in the day, assigning each a share of voting rights and initial capital in the bank.
The United States and Japan did not take part in the AIIB’s launch due to concerns about a lack of transparency in the bank’s initial formative stages.
Fan Mingtai, the head of the Institute of Quantitative and Technological Economics at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, explains the US and Japanese absence as “information asymmetry.”
“[The United States and Japan] Some 57 prospective founding nations signed a legal framework agreement in Beijing earlier in the day, assigning each a share of voting rights and initial capital in the bank.
The United States and Japan did not take part in the AIIB’s launch due to concerns about a lack of transparency in the bank’s initial formative stages.

IF the people advising the US and Japan on economic issues didn’t have the horse sense to understand how attractive the AIIB’s launch would be, they were not thinking at all about the possibilities and consequences for such an organization.

And, as reported at mineweb.com, last week:

China plans to launch a yuan-denominated gold fix by the end of 2015 via the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE), in a move aimed at giving the world’s biggest bullion producer and consumer more influence over pricing. The first public confirmation made by an exchange official comes after Reuters cited sources in February on the proposal for the fix to be set through trading on the SGE, the world’s biggest physical bullion exchange. “We will be introducing a renminbi-denominated fix at the right moment, we are hoping to introduce by the end of the year,” Shen Gang, SGE’s vice president, said at the LBMA Bullion Market Forum in Shanghai on Thursday. Shen did not give more details, but sources familiar with the matter have said that China is expected to receive central bank approval for the fix soon. Pan Gongsheng, a deputy governor of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), said the bank would continue to support “speedy and healthy growth of the China gold market” and its internationalisation. Given its leading role in gold, China feels it is entitled to be a price-setter for bullion and is asserting itself at a time when the global benchmark, the century-old London fix, is under scrutiny for alleged price-manipulation. If the yuan fix takes off, China could compel local buyers and foreign suppliers to pay the domestic yuan price, making the London fix less relevant in the world’s biggest bullion market.

A gold-backed renminbi against a worthless US paper currency, backed by absolutely nothing?!?

THIS is why the US government is slouching toward a war against China, folks; to attempt to save what is left of the US dollar.

Former Treasury Official: The West Is Collapsing!

Based on the reaction overnight by the stock market futures to the EU/Greek situation – the S&P 500 futures are down 25 pts/1.2% – I would hazard the opinion that the zombies on CNBC were slighly off-base when they asserted last week that a Greek default was already “priced into the market.”

This idiocy displayed on CNBC is emblematic of the extreme degree to which propaganda has infected our media. But it also highlights the degree to which the American public has willingly turned a blind eye to the Orwellian fog that has completely enveloped our system.

US Needs War Every Four Years to Maintain Economic Growth – Belgian Analyst

During 25 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, NATO has not forgotten even for a moment about the idea of an attack on Russia, Belgian political scientist and director of geopolitical research center Euro-Rus Kris Roman said in an exclusive interview with Regnum.
“But they had no pretext. Now, due to the chaos in Ukraine, this opportunity appeared and it is actively developed. The older generation, which had been brought up on the propaganda against the Soviet Union, has already accepted the idea of ??an inevitable conflict with Russia,” Roman said.

The Belgian expert believes that with the collapse of the USSR, NATO should have stopped existing, but somehow the alliance “has grown to the size of the Universe because the motto ‘The Russians are coming!’ is relevant again.”

Memo to Kris Roman; there are more Americans (even some of us “older coots”) who have “stopped drinking the Koolaid” on US government narrative on foreign policy, and do not believe a word the government says to them, or the world, for that matter.

There were things Karl Marx said that are, to be honest, cringeworthy, but his statement that “all wars are economic” was deeply insightful.

Russia Promises “Economic And Military” Aid To Syria As US Refloats Assad “Chemcial Weapons” Trial Balloon

Then again, as we reported earlier this month in “The Noose Around Syria’s Assad Tightens”, the advent of ISIS has added a new wrinkle to the Assad “war”, where as a result of a brutal, US-funded mercenary force which has taken over half of Syria’s territory, Assad’s days may indeed be numbered.

Which would provide for a useful return of the chemical weapons narrative: the “desperate dictator” is now a loose cannon, and all it takes is another false flag chemical attack to rerun the staged events of 2013, this time hopefully achieve the outcome the US is hoping for – planting a US-friendly regime, and one which would be agreeable to a Qatar pipeline crossing the land.

And then there are all the “positive” Keynesian externalities: after all there is nothing quite like a “limited” war to boost a nation’s GDP. In this case, the nation being the US of course, by way of its military-industrial complex, which is to US military spending as the US banking criminal syndicate is to the Fed’s monetary policy.

The only question is whether this would be a limited war, and as Syria just revealed it won’t be, because yet again Russia has made it very clear that any US military intervention in Syria, no matter how depleted the Syrian army is due to fighting ISIS on the ground every day, will be met with a proportional Russian response.

‘Cash Strapped’ VA Forgot It Had $43.1 Million Stashed Away

When not pleading poverty, the Department of Veterans Affairs can be awfully careless with its money.The latest example: In 2011, the VA set $43.1 million aside to produce brochures informing veterans about their benefits, then forgot about it. The money went unspent for three years and now might be lost for good.
An internal audit released earlier this month said, “A breakdown of VA fiscal controls and a lack of oversight led to the parking of funds . .. and the failure to detect and properly use and manage these funds.”
That breakdown in fiscal controls seems to be endemic at the VA.
This week, in fact, the VA is telling Congress that it needs $2.6 billion in funds to cover its “unexpectedly” high health costs, and if it doesn’t get the money, it might have to start furloughing medical personnel.

Texas attorney general says religious state workers can deny licenses to same-sex couples if they object to gay marriage

Texas’s conservative Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton is calling the Supreme Court decision giving same-sex couples the right to marry a ‘lawless ruling’ and says state workers can cite their religious objections in denying marriage licenses.

He warned in a statement Sunday that any clerk, justice of the peace or other administrator who declines to issue a license to a same-sex couple could face litigation or a fine.

But in the nonbinding legal opinion, Paxton says ‘numerous lawyers’ stand ready to defend, free of charge, any public official refusing to grant one.

Truth is a Crime Against The State

The Western presstitutes have succeeded in creating a false reality for insouciant Americans and also for much of the European Union population.

A sizable percentage of these insouciant peoples believe that Russia invaded Ukraine and that Russia is threatening to invade the Baltic States and Poland. This belief exists despite all intelligence of all Western governments reporting that there is no sign of any Russian forces that would be required for invasion.

The “Russian invasion,” like “Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and al Qaeda connections,” like “Assad of Syria’s use of chemical weapons against his own people,” like “Iranian nukes,” never existed but nevertheless became the reality in the Western media. The insouciant Western peoples believe in non-existent occurrences.

In other words, just to state the obvious noncontroversial fact, the Western “news” media is a propaganda ministry from which no truth emerges.

The “Whoreporate news networks”, in print, or electronically, only give you the narrative the US government wants you to hear or see, which is why you are many times shielded so carefully from the stark realities creating public policy about which you need to know, and understand.

Unfortunately, at this point in my life, the country of which I am most deeply frightened, in terms of making some sort of ham-fistedly, pig-headedly wrong policies which will impact Americans badly (either by declaring a new war, against a truly non-belligerent country which is no threat to us), or embracing fiscal policies which will lead to a smash and burn of the US economy’s small businesses, is my own government.

Janner charged with historic child abuse

Prosecutors on Monday brought 22 charges of abuse against an elderly politician accused of using his position to have sex with young boys.

The prosecution against Lord Greville Janner, a former MP and a member of the House of Lords, represents a victory for campaigners who have demanded tougher action on child abuse.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) had initially declined to bring charges against the 86-year-old because he is suffering from Alzheimer’s and was considered too ill to stand trial.

But after intense criticism, director of public prosecutions Alison Saunders announced he has now been charged with offences against nine victims, all but one of them aged 16 or under at the time, relating to alleged incidents between 1963 and 1988.

The Absence of Policy: Washington’s Shrill Anti-Russia Rhetoric Has No Plan B

As host of RT’s political debate program “CrossTalk”, I have explored and covered the divergent narratives and rhetoric when it comes to the artificially generated Ukraine crisis. It is difficult to conjure up a topic that is so polarizing, antagonistic, and even dangerous.

The west’s failed policy in Ukraine has only emboldened the low-octane policymakers in Washington and Brussels. This is the worst of all possible worlds — a game of chicken where both sides lose.

If you are an avid reader of Russia Insider, you will know the situation in Ukraine worsens by the day. The country faces financial default in a matter of weeks with overall economic meltdown to follow. The IMF — the evil lender of last resort — openly admits it will continue to assist Kiev even after it defaults (which breaks all the lender’s own internal rules). Alas! In this case, geopolitics trumps common sense.

The analysis here is fine, as far as it goes, but the writer of this article is missing one key factor to the problem; the pathological inability of the US government and military to think any scenario through to its logical conclusion.

And this is why the US government is moving forward, almost as does a picador in a bull fight, toward an all out war with Russia, as insane as this pathway sounds; that is the US government’s Plan B.

Lapid slams ‘despicable’ Gaza flotilla as ‘gang of terror supporters’

Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid on Saturday denounced those taking part in the flotilla to Gaza as “a gang of supporters of terrorism” and a “despicable flotilla that needs to be stopped.”

The former finance minister spoke to a town hall meeting in Holon. He ridiculed the idea that the flotilla was aimed at highlighting the plight of Gaza and advancing Palestinian human rights.

“This flotilla is a kind of provocation against the State of Israel,” he said. “This is a provocation by people who are anything but defenders of human rights.”

So, Mr. Lapid, you have a very unique definition of “terrorism”.

Apparently it is an act of terrorism to attempt to bring desperately needed food and medication to Gaza..

But what is NOT, in your mind, terroristic in any way, is:

  1. Serial genocide against the Palestinian people.
    2. The torture and indefinite detention of Palestinian kids to get them to confess to ANYTHING there torturers ask them to confess to.
    3. The brisk annexation of Palestinian land to which the State of Israel has no legal claim.

Please be aware that there is no way humanly possible in which you can attempt to redirect this narrative about the heartless, contemptible treatment of Palestinians by their Israeli overlords.

Sir, you cannot lie your way out of this; the evidence for everything I have stated is palpably clear and true.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsReports: Turkey Plans to Invade Syria to Fight Kurds

On Friday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued another vociferous anti-Kurdish speech, vowing Turkey would never allow the YPG to establish an independent state in northwestern Syria. Since then, reports are emerging that Erdogan has ordered the Turkish military to send troops into Syria to fight against the Kurds.

If true, the move would be hugely controversial, as the Kurdish YPG are being openly backed by the US in their fights against ISIS. Having Turkey, itself allied with the US, attacking the YPG and trying to carve out a “buffer zone” from Kurdish territory would be seen as bolstering ISIS.

The real opposition is likely to come from the Turkish military itself, however, and there are reports that Gen. Ozel, the Turkish military Chief of Staff, has delayed previous directives to intervene in Syria, citing questions about international law. The Erdogan government has been lobbying them heavily ever since, trying to convince them to be on board for the deployment.

Again, IF true, this policy of Edrogan’s will complicate things here mightily for the US military.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest News‘Hi, I’m Uncle Sam and I’m a War-oholic’

War on drugs. War on poverty. War in Afghanistan. War in Iraq. War on terror. The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war. When a war mentality takes over, it chooses the weapons and tactics for you. It limits the terms of debate before you even begin. It answers questions before they’re even asked.

When you define something as war, it dictates the use of the military (or militarized police forces, prisons, and other forms of coercion) as the primary instruments of policy. Violence becomes the means of decision, total victory the goal. Anyone who suggests otherwise is labeled a dreamer, an appeaser, or even a traitor.

Ever noticed that when the US declares war on ANYTHING (poverty, drugs, terror, etc.), the problem gets worse rather than better?!?

And the government of the US has a severe problem on its hands; after the lies about Saddam’s Weapons, the lies used to trick us into invading and occupying Afghanistan, and the general state of lying about the economy, the American government has zero credibility with the American people.

We can no longer believe anything this government says, and have become (peacefully and logically) vocal about that.

About the only thing the US government has now is to engineer a massive false flag attack, and use it as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and declare martial law.

Iran, World Powers Plan To Keep Nuclear Talks Going Beyond June 30 Deadline, Official Says

The six world powers seeking to negotiate an historic agreement with Iran to curb its nuclear program plan to carry on negotiating beyond a Tuesday deadline, a senior U.S. official said on Sunday.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was to leave Vienna and return to Tehran for consultations with the country’s leadership on the state of negotiations, Iran said.

Officials from both sides said big differences still remained.

European Union foreign policy chief Frederica Mogherini said earlier on Sunday it was not impossible to get an accord by the self-imposed deadline but that a few extra days may be needed.

Foreign ministers from the negotiating countries were gathering in Vienna on Sunday to assess where the talks stood. They expected them to spill over into July.

With these talks “spilling over” into July, the logical question I have to ask is, how long before Israel bombs the Iranian reactors with impunity, in order to make the negotiations null and void?!?

And as the country which has offered the training and technology to Iran to make their nuclear state possible, what will Russia do when that happens?!?

Unfortunately, Israel’s Netanyahu is hubristic enough to not have considered this, but I would strongly caution any sane member of his cabinet to raise the question, loudly, and articulately.

White supremacists sign up for military to train for race war — with little pushback from Pentagon

After the horrific massacre at Charleston’s historic black church, Americans are slowly realizing the threat posed by white supremacist and neo-Nazi movements. But few know that their presence has grown within one of the most powerful institutions in America: the US military.

According to the FBI, there are hundreds of white supremacists in the US army or in the veteran community. Some analysts even estimate the number is in the thousands. In America, 203 white supremacist “extremist cases” investigated by the Bureau from 2001 to 2008 involved veterans. The problem hasn’t gone away. Neo-Nazi veteran Wade Michael Page attacked six worshippers at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, in 2012.

I spent a number of years investigating how neo-Nazis and white supremacists had infiltrated the US military, with very little push back from the Pentagon, which was desperate to keep the supply of troops flowing for the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is pure codswallop to make Americans feel very afraid…very afraid indeed; to the point of doing everything their government tells them to, unthinkingly and unquestioningly.

If, in fact, this person actually did any research whatsoever, where are the numbers, please?!?

Notice that there is no hard evidence to back up anything this person alleges in this article.

IF this is not “research”, then it is pure, grade-A bovine excrement propaganda, engineered to scare Americans.

And please remember; just as is the case with so many other mass casualty shooters in the US, Dylann Roof, the accused here, was on heavy psychiatric medications, which have a known history of causing homicidal or suicidal thoughts.

Please see the article here:

http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/big-list-of-drug-induced-killers/

Of course, demanding that pharmaceutical companies remove these dangerous substances from their product list would just cut into their bottom line too greatly, so that never happens. And in MY world, any drug company executive who allows such a drug to be sold, knowing its high risk, should be tried, convicted and jailed for a very long, and not in a Club Fed. But: I digress.

It has appeared to both Mike and me that someone in this country wants to see race hatred leading to some kind of a race war, and I have to pull back a bit, and ask “cui bono”?!? Who benefits?!?

Well, you have an Administration on the ropes in Washington, with its star player for the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, tanking on potential charges of corruption, gross mismanagement of the State Department, and outright lying to Congress on Benghazi, you start to feel cornered. And cornered politicians are both desperate and dangerous.

Except for the money junkies, the economy is in a mess; just ask anyone whose job was recently offshored/outsourced.

The benefit for such an administration from a national series of race riots would be to give Obama the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Law, and invoke martial law, and perhaps postpone the next election…indefinitely.

Nothing could be said about the US business-shredding Atlantic or Pacific trade deals, without imprisonment, fines, or both.

Nothing could be said about upcoming potential wars with Iran, China, and Russia.

And nothing could be said about Charlie Rangel’s legislation, still sitting in the Armed Services Committee, to reinstate the draft, and draft our young women, as well as our young men.

I am noticing that on the feed from Faux News, we are being “prepped” for some kind of horrific terror incident to happen over this weekend, either domestically, or against American interests.

This could well be another “justification” for President Obama’s gleeful suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

California Drought So Bad, Neighbors Stealing Water From Each Other

There is simply no commodity on the planet more precious than water. Without it, life as we know it cannot exist. The human body can go without water for only three days at the most before death occurs.

Aside from the essential survival aspects, we also depend on water for many other things, such as bathing, watering our lawns and gardens, washing our clothes, and a number of other daily activities. Everyone knows this, but access to clean water is something most of us have taken for granted.

However, that is beginning to change, particularly in the Southwest region of the United States, where a drought period that has lasted for more than a decade has become a massive problem. In California, Nevada and Arizona in particular, millions of people are being affected. Experts say that the problem will only worsen over the coming years.

Greece Done – Maybe

There is a sense that a last-minute deal may still be pulled off, but the general mood is one of who cares. I would suggest that there may be more nervousness than is suggested by gold’s price action and the risk to traders lies in more upside pressure. With holidays in Canada and a shortened July 4th week expect high volatility.

 

 

Japan’s Presence in South China Sea Is ‘Unacceptable,’ China Says

U.S. patrols in the disputed South China Sea will be permitted but a Japanese military presence there is “unacceptable,” according to a Chinese general.

Zhu is known for his hawkish views towards the United States.

“As for the Japanese military presence, it is very difficult for the Chinese people and the Chinese government to accept it,” he added.

We Are All Greeks!

It’s not Greece which has failed, but rather Chancellor Merkel, Finance Minister Schäuble, the EU Commission, the European Central Bank, and the IMF. Why should the Greek government stick with the austerity measures demanded by the EU, which have already reduced the Greek economy by a third, lowered the birth rate, raised the death rate, and increased youth unemployment to 65%? A policy that even the IMF had to admit was completely incompetent, and that the UN expert on debt and human rights condemned as a clear violation of human rights? Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s decision not to capitulate to the “shock and awe” method of the Eurogroup’s Shylocks is not only correct, but offers the chance for all of Europe to break with the insanity of the casino economy, which only serves the interests of the banks and speculators—provided however, that Germany and other countries find the courage to mobilize Europe’s moral and intellectual strengths.

The existence of the approximately 14,000 photographs will probably cause yet another delay in the military commissions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as attorneys for the defendants demand that all the images be turned over and the government wades through the material to decide what it thinks is relevant to the proceedings.

Defense attorneys said they have not yet been informed about the photographs and said it is unacceptable that they should come to light now, more than three years after the arraignment of Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four other defendants accused of planning the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

A memo to those defending these men: a delay is what the CIA, White House, Pentagon, and State Department want!

And the reason I am certain of this is that, for some of these men, waterboarding was not the worst thing done to these men to get them to confess.

As reported in theguardian.com, on 1 August, 2005:

Benyam Mohammed travelled from London to Afghanistan in July 2001, but after September 11 he fled to Pakistan. He was arrested at Karachi airport on April 10 2002, and describes being flown by a US government plane to a prison in Morocco. These are extracts from his diary. They cut off my clothes with some kind of doctor’s scalpel. I was naked. I tried to put on a brave face. But maybe I was going to be raped. Maybe they’d electrocute me. Maybe castrate me. They took the scalpel to my right chest. It was only a small cut. Maybe an inch. At first I just screamed … I was just shocked, I wasn’t expecting … Then they cut my left chest. This time I didn’t want to scream because I knew it was coming. One of them took my penis in his hand and began to make cuts. He did it once, and they stood still for maybe a minute, watching my reaction. I was in agony. They must have done this 20 to 30 times, in maybe two hours. There was blood all over. “I told you I was going to teach you who’s the man,” [one] eventually said. They cut all over my private parts. One of them said it would be better just to cut it off, as I would only breed terrorists. I asked for a doctor. Doctor No 1 carried a briefcase. “You’re all right, aren’t you? But I’m going to say a prayer for you.” Doctor No 2 gave me an Alka-Seltzer for the pain. I told him about my penis. “I need to see it. How did this happen?” I told him. He looked like it was just another patient. “Put this cream on it two times a day. Morning and night.” He gave me some kind of antibiotic. I was in Morocco for 18 months. Once they began this, they would do it to me about once a month. One time I asked a guard: “What’s the point of this? I’ve got nothing I can say to them. I’ve told them everything I possibly could.” “As far as I know, it’s just to degrade you. So when you leave here, you’ll have these scars and you’ll never forget. So you’ll always fear doing anything but what the US wants.”

Folks, in the name of extracting confessions through torture for stuff people did not do, your government signed off on torture, and made it “acceptible” for inquisitors to do this, just as the Catholic church wrote off torture years ago, and made it acceptible for torturers in those times to torture people into confessing to things they didn’t do.

This goes all the way up the food chain, and when President Obama made that obscene comment about “looking forward instead of looking backward” comment about the legal ramifications of torture, and that the unholy trinity of Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney would never be looking at prosecution for their crimes against humanity, you had to know that the fix was in.

The torture of Benyam Mohammed for crimes he did not commit is how the world now sees the United States of America; wicked, monstrous, vicious in its pursuit of money and resources for the money junkies, and with absolutely zero morality whatsoever.

Every time a US drone strike is called against some alleged bad guy who apparently cannot possibly be tried in a court of law (perhaps, there is no real evidence, other than the President having said, “he needs to be assassinated!”) the collateral damage to the moral reputation of this country becomes highly severe.

This government kills innocent people, women, children, and the elderly medically infirm, with impunity, and wonders how and why people can become radicalized against this violence?!?

The drone strikes, coupled with the US government’s support of countries where we maintain a cozy relationship with leadership which consistently brutalizes and suppresses its own people, are a radical recruiter’s wet dream.

But I frankly do not believe that this has been lost on those in the bowels of power in DC. In fact, they are continuing the practice of drown strikes to create a permanent state of war in this world, where the true beneficial is the US’s military industrial complex.

The Flotilla Question

…there should be an immediate end to the eight-year blockade which was imposed on the Gaza Strip by Israel. Gaza is now little more than a huge jail for the 1.8 million Palestinians caught inside. Second, and I believe this whole heartedly, Israel should not fear the demand for respect of human rights coming from the international community – from its formal organizations as well as from the civil society effort organizing the flotilla. In fact, the entire effort is little more than a few fishing ships carrying medical equipment and solar energy grids. Ours is a civil, peaceful, unarmed, and nonviolent act. Yet the whole of Israel seems to be going through a thunder storm because of it.
Note: Israel has once again committed an act of international piracy!

 

 

Turns Out the US Launched Its Zero-Day Policy in Feb 2010

Zero-day vulnerabilities are software security holes that are not known to the software vendor and are therefore unpatched and open to attack by hackers and others. A zero-day exploit is the malicious code crafted to attack such a hole to gain entry to a computer. When security researchers uncover zero-day vulnerabilities, they generally disclose them to the vendor so they can be patched. But when the government wants to exploit a hole, it withholds the information, leaving all computers that contain the flaw open to attack—including U.S. government computers, critical infrastructure systems and the computers of average users.

China-led AIIB development bank holds signing ceremony

China has hosted the signing ceremony of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), a new international financial institution set to rival the World Bank and Asian Development Bank.

Delegates from 50 countries signed articles that determine each member’s share and the bank’s initial capital.

The UK, Germany, Australia and South Korea are among the founding members.

Japan and the US, which oppose the AIIB, are the most prominent countries not to join.

 

 

Israel Plans Fortified Fence for 150-Mile Border With Jordan

57 countries set to sign on to China-backed investment bank AIIB

One of China’s biggest foreign policy successes ever will take concrete shape Monday when delegates from 57 countries sign an agreement on the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) in Beijing.

The founding members of the China-backed AIIB will sign articles of agreement that decide each member’s share and the bank’s initial capital.

The multilateral institution, seen as a rival to the Western-dominated World Bank and Asian Development Bank, was initially opposed by the United States but has attracted many prominent U.S. allies including Britain, Germany, Australia and South Korea. Other founding members include most Asian nations and countries from the Middle East and South America.

Japan and the United States are the most prominent nations not to have any representation in the venture. China has said it has left the door open for them to join.

This will be a sucker punch to the gut for the US dollar, when things start to flow here; and this may well be an action which will heighten the US government’s appetite for a very ill-conceived war against China, allegedly to prevent a positive outcome from happening here.

I am watching the “news” feed coming from “Faux news”, and although they covered the Greek banking system and insolvency, albeit briefly, I never saw a word about the coming the Asian age, with China and its new financial friends, potentially leading the world, and this deal, which is huge.

The world is defenceless against the next financial crisis, warns BIS

The world will be unable to fight the next global financial crash as central banks have used up their ammunition trying to tackle the last crises, the Bank of International Settlements has warned.

The so-called central bank of central banks launched a scatching critique of global monetary policy in its annual report. The BIS claimed that central banks have backed themselves into a corner after repeatedly cutting interest rates to shore up their economies.

These low interest rates have in turn fuelled economic booms, encouraging excessive risk taking. Booms have then turned to busts, which policymakers have responded to with even lower rates.

Puerto Rico is on the verge of default

While all the focus is on Greece there is another government that looks like defaulting on its debts: Puerto Rico’s.

Speaking Sunday evening the island’s governor, Alejandro García Padilla, has concluded that the commonwealth could not pay its roughly $72 billion in debts. The admission will probably have wide-reaching financial repercussions, according to the New York Times.

Padilla suggests they will “probably seek significant concessions from as many as all of the island’s creditors, which could include deferring some debt payments for as long as five years or extending the timetable for repayment”.

Puerto Rico, as a commonwealth territory of the U.S., does not have the option of bankruptcy. A default on its debts would most likely leave the island, its creditors and its residents in a legal and financial limbo that, like the debt crisis in Greece, could take years to sort out, according to the Times.

So, who is going to be forced to pay on this default?!?

The American taxpayers?!?

And out of WHAT, please?!?

Because the American taxpayer is completely tapped out right now, and short of US police and military raids and confiscation of personal property (which may be being considered by those in the bowels of power in DC), there is nothing left.

BALTIMORE POLICE CALLED OUT FOR MAKING UP ‘GANG VIOLENCE’ STORIES TO SCARE PUBLIC

Remember when the Baltimore Police Department was telling all of these stories about “Bloods” and “Crips” uniting to “destroy” the city and its “heroic” police force?

Now city leaders are coming forward and calling out the police for these claims. Last Thursday several leaders publicly questioned the Baltimore Police Department as to why they issued a public warning the morning of Freddie Gray’s funeral. That warning claimed that police officers were being targeted by a united Blood-Crip alliance that would not rest until every Baltimore officer was dead.

Instead of allowing the community to mourn the untimely death of Freddie Gray, the Baltimore City Police hijacked the attention and painted themselves as the victims.

Now, months later, it is coming out that the whole thing was invented. The police made it all up. They didn’t have a shred of credible evidence to support the claims they were making.

In the Freddie Gray incident, the police were never the victims.

Communities now need to come together in solidarity to protect themselves and keep the peace, because it is for darned certain that the police cannot, or will not do it.

Lancashire Council in Britain Deals Blow to Shale Industry

Britain’s ambitions to produce natural gas from shale rock were set back on Monday when a local government rejected a company’s drilling plan.

The Lancashire County Council, in northwest England, turned down a request by the shale gas explorer Cuadrilla Resources to drill four wells at a site called Preston New Road and test them with hydraulic fracturing, which involves pumping water and other material down wells to break open the rock to allow gas to flow.

Before the vote, councilors spoke emotionally against the plan, saying that it would mar the landscape, create unacceptable levels of noise and might also saddle the county with pollution problems years down the road. The rejection was greeted with loud applause by shale opponents.

Smart meters set to cost Blighty as much as replacing Trident

Smart meters will cost as much as the Trident nuclear deterrent to implement, with the full cost of the scheme rising to £19bn, according to a government report.

Total lifetime costs of the programme have now risen by £2bn since 2013, according to a report by the Major Projects Authority.

In contrast, estimates of the new Trident procurement price it between £17.5bn and £23.4bn.

Surprisingly, the smart meter project has been flagged as “amber” — meaning “successful delivery appears feasible but significant issues already exist.”

This is despite a number of warnings that the programme is in danger of turning into a “costly failure”.

To some extent, this is a result of the politics of blocs. Sometimes we find it very difficult to come to terms with them on geopolitical issues. It is hard to reach an agreement with people who whisper even at home for fear of being overheard by the Americans. This is not a joke or a figure of speech.”

The very idea that a government would consult its people on a problematic proposal put to it by the institutions was treated with incomprehension and often with disdain bordering on contempt.

The Greeks for whom all the talk means nothing – because they have nothing

After seven years of a crisis that has left 26% of Greece’s workforce unemployed, 30% of its people below the poverty line, 17% unable to meet their daily food needs and 3.1 million without health insurance, it is hard to see how anything decided in Brussels or in Athens in the coming week will do much to change the lives of a large number of Greeks any time soon.

“Those that were already on the margins have been pushed right to the very, very edge, and those who were in the middle have been pushed to the margins,” said Ioanna Pertsinidou of Praksis, a charity that runs day centres for vulnerable people and offers legal and employment advice.

“So many people – ordinary, low-to-middle income people with jobs and homes and their lives on track – have seen their lives go drown the drain so fast,” Pertsinidou said. “People who never dreamed that one day they would not be able to pay their electricity bill, or feed their children properly.”

 

 

Ransomware slinging exploit kit targets Flash remote code execution

Attackers have added a recent dangerous Adobe vulnerability to the Magnitude exploit kit, according to respected independent malware researcher “Kafeine”.

The remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2015-3113) revealed last week allows attackers to hijack un-patched machines targeting Internet Explorer on Windows 7 and XP.

Web villains designated APT 3 by FireEye sleuths are already exploiting the flaw through phishing attacks.

Now the researcher known as Kafeine says the vulnerability has been added to the Magnitude exploit kit in what is a significant elevation of risk for Flash users.

Kafeine says Magnitude attackers are using the exploit to drop the Cryptowall ransomware.

GCHQ and NSA broke antivirus software so that they could spy on people, leaks indicate

The British and American spy agencies deliberately broke anti-virus software so that they could read the messages of their citizens, according to new leaks.

Both the NSA and GCHQ have long been said to have deliberately reversed engineer software so that they could find weaknesses in software and exploit them to read communications. But new documents show that the agencies did so to some of the most popular antivirus software, potentially exposing hundreds of millions of people to dangerous viruses, according to a report from The Intercept.

The agencies reverse engineered Kaspersky antivirus software so that they could see how it worked and ensure that it didn’t keep them from looking through computers, according to the report. They also looked through emails that had been sent to the company flagging up viruses and vulnerabilities, the Intercept reported.

Israeli diplomat in Berlin: Maintaining German guilt about Holocaust helps Israel

A spokeswoman for the Israeli embassy in Berlin recently told Israeli journalists it was in the country’s interest to maintain German guilt about the Holocaust, and that it isn’t seeking full normalization of relations between the governments.

Embassy spokeswoman Adi Farjon made the comments in a closed briefing session with journalists at the embassy.

“We were all in shock,” said a female journalist present at the briefing. “The spokeswoman clearly said it was an Israeli interest to maintain German guilt feelings. She even said that without them, we’d be just another country as far as they’re concerned.”

Others present at the event confirmed the journalist’s account.

P5+1 and Iran Have Settled Framework for Sanctions Relief Timing, Says Iranian Sources

Contrary to public posturing on the timing and pace of sanctions relief, a framework for handling this critical matter of the nuclear deal has been resolved, according to Iranian sources.

Iranian officials have on numerous occasions insisted that sanctions relief must come immediately upon the signing of an agreement. This has been at direct odds with the position of the U.S. government and its allies, who insist that relief only can come after Iran has taken numerous steps limiting its nuclear activities.

As often times is the case in diplomacy, the solution was found in a combination of a play with words and practical measures.

Russia to offer NASA to bring to ISS part of cargo lost on Dragon cargo craft

“We can’t tell you much right now but the Progress craft is to start off into space in a week’s time and we’ll make our proposals known to the American counterparts tomorrow,” Solovyov said. “We’ll tell them which of their cargoes we could take along.”
He said the Dragon cargo ship did not have any Russian cargoes aboard, as the Russian space agency Roscosmos did not have any need for using this flight to consign a payload to the ISS at the moment.
Expedition 43 currently working aboard ISS includes Russian cosmonauts Gennady Padakla and Mikhail Korniyenko and NASA astronaut Scott Kelly. Korniyenko and Kelly who arrived at the ISS at the end of March are expected to stay there for almost a year – their mission will last 342 days.
In a month’s time, they will be joined by a new trio – Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren, and the astronaut of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, Kimiya Yui will start off towards the ISS in a Soyuz spacecraft on July 24.

Liar, Liar! Mainstream Media Won’t Like This One

People back home ask me; “Why are you on Putin’s side?” Well, a simple browser function called a “screenshot” speaks volumes on that. I don’t like lies, and especially those that get people killed.
Russia’s staggered economy, Putin bent on an arms race, these and other rumors have now been fed to Americans for 18 months, and with scarcely a whimper of “foul” or of “hey wait a minute” even from citizens. And my colleagues and friend carry on, as if this does not matter. Well it does matter! If they will swallow this, then there is no hope for a free America. You know the rest of the story from the history books.

Armenian activists do not accept president’s offer

Activists protesting against electricity price hike have not accepted the offer by President Serzh Sargsyan.

Member of “No to Plunder” initiative Vaghinak Shushanyan said they do not consider this a victory and will continue the struggle. He added that Baghramyan Avenue will be closed, since the Armenian authorities did not meet any of their demands.

Serzh Sargsyan neither canceled the decision to rise electricity price, nor promised to hold accountable the law enforcers for their illegal actions on June 23.

In a statement made earlier on Saturday, the Armenian leader said the government will absorb the electricity price hike before the end of evaluation conducted by an international company.

The rate hike is just an excuse. This still feels like another US covert overthrow in progress. And if the Armenians think the cost of living is high now, wait until they see what it is under a new US puppet government!

 

 

FBI Files Dig Up Shocking Dirt From Top Obama Adviser’s Past That Could Explain A Lot

The Obama adviser’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also a communist according to FBI documents obtained by Judicial Watch. The agency considered him a potential Communist saboteur, who was to be arrested in the event of a war with the Soviet Union.

According to Judicial Watch, Jarrett herself is a “liberal extremist” who, like the president, had strong ties to Frank Marshall Davis — a member of the Communist Party with an extensive FBI file.

Obama wrote about his mentor “Frank” (Marshall Davis) in his best-selling memoir Dreams From My Father(2005). He mentioned him 22 times in the book by his first name, with various other references as well. The president wrote about a conversation he had with Davis in the late 70’s as the young man prepared to leave Hawaii to go to college on the Mainland.

Frank Marshall Davis was Obama’s true biological father. He met Obama’s mother while attending the University of Hawaii, and paid for his schooling as a part-time pornographer. Obama’s mother was one of his models. Obama is a 60s love child.

Remember when Obama talked about his father’s service in WW2? Neither Soetero nor Obama sr. served in the military, but Frank Marshall did.

The confusion over Barack Obama’s birth certificate comes from a common practice in the 60s where a man marrying a woman who already had a baby would not bother with the legal adoption process, but merely ask for a new birth certificate with the correct name to be issued. That was the source of the “birther” nonsense.

More at Obama the love child?

 

 

Officials From 65 Countries Met at a Security Summit in ‘Isolated’ Russia

Delegations from more than 60 countries, including Japan, China, India, Switzerland, Serbia, Spain, and Greece are attending the conference in Ulan-Ude, which runs from June 24-25. The United States was invited to attend, but declined the invitation, TASS said.
According to the Russian Security Council’s press service, there are several issues on the agenda at the summit. These include international cooperation in the fight against global terrorism and extremism; the issue of fresh water as a strategic resource for the sustainable development of international security; and Russia’s role in ensuring biological safety in the international sphere.

To President Obama it is irrelevant that the vast majority of Crimean citizens want to belong to Russia. His hatred of Russia and especially of President Putin has tipped any balance he may have displayed and is now extreme to the point of being malevolently insulting. He is increasingly intent on confrontation and has stated that the decision of the citizens of Crimea to accede to Russia is illegal. The White House announced that “We reject the ‘referendum’ that took place today in the Crimean region of Ukraine”, and Obama declared “I again call on Russia to end its occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea”.

 

 

#SailingToGaza ~~ THE BASTARDS TRY TO STOP US AGAIN

Passengers of the Freedom Flotilla III bound for Gaza have announced that one of the boats, named Juliano after the co-founder and director of The Freedom Theatre, Juliano Mer Khamis who was assassinated in 2011, has been sabotaged. Divers damaged the boat’s propellers, causing it to take in water and the boat barely made it into port in Greece before it sank. On Saturday June 27th, passengers reported that the flotilla was followed by an unidentified patrol boat and a military aircraft.

Israel has engaged in a massive campaign to prevent the flotilla from reaching Gaza, threatening the participants in a similar fashion as during earlier attempts to break the illegal siege on Gaza. In 2010, Israeli troops attacked a similar flotilla in international waters, killing ten of the activists onboard and detaining many others.

Iraq Residents: ‘We Know America is Providing ISIS with Weapons & Food’

The people of Iraq are increasingly blaming the United States for the spread of ISIS in their country, a Wall Street Journal report reveals.

While interviewing Iraqi refugees in a tent city in Baghdad, journalist Yaroslav Trofimov discovered that a growing number of residents believe ISIS is receiving direct support from the American government.

“We all know that America is providing ISIS with weapons and food, and that it is because of American backing that they have become so strong,” said Abbas Hashem, a 50-year-old who recently fled Ramadi.

Others, such as prominent lawmaker Alia Nusseif, made equally striking comments, accusing the US of using ISIS as a proxy army to split up the country.

“We don’t have any trust in Americans anymore,” Nusseif said. “We now think ISIS is being used as a tool by America to divide and weaken Iraq.”

 

 

The Forgiven Holocaust

… Liberals, Zionists, and “responsible” conservatives now occupy a rhetorically Hitlercentric universe, in which Nazism is the measure of all evil and Roosevelt is redeemed by his determination to crush Germany. The stain of guilt for Nazism constantly spreads – to ordinary Germans, allies of Germany, neutrals, isolationists, Swiss bankers, and Pius XII himself … Everyone and everything is measured on a single scale, which might be called the Hitler Continuum. But there is not corresponding Stalin Continuum. Those who aided and defended and celebrated Stalin at the height of his crimes incur no guilt or obloquy. To have dreamed the Communist dream is evidence of idealism, not guilt or even irresponsibility.

Could this be YOU? Everyday Americans, including trained professionals and bosses, reveal how easily they fell into masses of debt – and have been left with no escape

They are Americans from all walks of life and every corner of the country – but are united in debt.

The people pictured in the portraits below have all laid bare their personal finances – revealing the sometimes-crippling amounts of money they owe.

One business owner borrowed $250,000 to fund a laundromat, and is now struggling to shift it – while others have been struck by illness, fraud and what they admit is ‘frivolous spending’.

Others owe more modest amounts – often from college fees and credit cards – but have varying levels of optimism about how they will ever pay it back.

All are featured in The Debt Project, a series of photographs by artist Brittany Powell, aiming to investigate how people come to borrow and owe such life-changing amounts of money. Each is accompanied by a hand-written note.

 

 

TPP Trade Agreement Sleight of Hand: It Was Soooo Easy to Distract The American People With A Confederate Flag Flap and then Sell Us Into Slavery Again!

while America was distracted by a contrived, pre-planned Confederate flag distraction, the U.S. Congress forfeited the entire American economic future by quietly passing so-called “fast-track authority” which will allow President Obama to approve the TPP “free trade” agreement.

The TPP, as you may have heard, outright surrenders U.S. sovereignty to multinational corporations, handing them total global monopolies over labor practices, immigration, Big Pharma drug pricing, GMO food labeling, criminalization of garden seeds and much more. In all, the TPP hands over control of 80% of the U.S. economy to global monopolists, and the TPP is set up to enable those corporations to engage in virtually unlimited toxic chemical pollution, medical monopolization, the gutting of labor safety laws and much more.

 

 

Greece: The system versus the people

So what a wonderful system the European Union in its utter wisdom has created for the people of the Old Continent in general and the Greeks, Portuguese and Spanish in particular. A North-South divide, the Haves and the Have Nots, a two-speed, two-tier continent of the Rich and the Poor. Two Lands, Two Peoples, One Leader. Deutschland über Alles!
It is a not just a shame the way Europe has treated Greece, it is a scandal. Even more so, the callousness and sheer disrespect that everyone from Government officials to the media to the common person in the street have shown towards Greece and the Greeks, labelling them “irresponsible”, “lazy” and “spendthrifts”, an attitude so clear to see in the derogatory and insulting acronym PIGS given to Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain.

 

 

Russia to ban Coca-Cola and Pepsi

Russian State Duma deputies offer to ban Coca-Cola and Pepsi import to Russia in addition to the food embargo. Igor Zotov claims that the beverage producers fund main political forces of the US.
Russia limited food import from countries imposing sanctions against it for a year in 2014. These are: the US, Canada, Australia and Norway. On Thursday Russia has extended embargo till August, 2, 2016.
“In order to support actions of the Russian President and Government regarding countersanctions, we offer to impose restrictions on The Coca-Cola Company ? PepsiCo, which are the official sponsors of the Republican and Democratic Party of the US, and thus advocate extension of the sanctions against Russia,” Zotov said.

 

 

35% suicide surge in Greece after austerity measures

The austerity measures in Greece generated a surge of suicides.
The number of suicides has increased by 35% for the last two years.
Bond obligations, increase of expenses in comparison with the incomes of the citizens often lead to depression and despair amid the population and instigate further suicides.
Charles C. Branas, MD have tracked the suicide rate in Greece for more than 30 years and found out that the highest monthly rates occurred in 2012.
“The passage of new austerity measures in June 2011 marked the beginning of significant, abrupt and sustained increases in total suicides (+35.7%) and male suicides (+18.5%),” the investigators write.
The tendency can be tracked in the country since the beginning of the EU economic crisis in 2008.

 

CNN Mistakenly Spots ISIS Flag At London Pride, Doesn’t Notice Banner Is Made Up Of Dildos And Butt Plugs

When did CNN stop being a news channel? On April 15th, 2014, when the network held a panel discussion on whether Malaysian Airlines flight 370 fell into a black hole.

Yet on Saturday the broadcaster surpassed that nadir, running an “exclusive” segment on the “unnerving sight” of the Islamic State flag at a Pride event in London.

The “ISIS flag amongst a sea of rainbow colours was spotted by a CNN international assignment editor,” said the anchor, gravely.

CNN International’s Lucy Pawle was hastily brought to the phone to discuss the implications of the terror symbol at the LGBT event.

What the journalist failed to notice was that the letters on the flag were made up of an assortment of sexual devices, including dildos, butt plugs and whips.

The Money Myth Exploded

“Mr. Oliver, as our banker, your only occupation on this island will be to look after our money; no manual labour.”

“I shall, like every other banker, carry out to complete satisfaction my task of forging the community’s prosperity.”

“Mr. Oliver, we’re going to build you a house that will be in keeping with your dignity as a banker. But in the meantime, do you mind if we lodge you in the building that we use for our get-togethers?”

“That will suit me, my friends. But first of all, unload the boat. There’s paper and a printing press, complete with ink and type, and there’s a little barrel which I exhort you to treat with the greatest care.”

They unloaded everything. The small barrel aroused intense curiosity in our good fellows.

“This barrel,” Oliver announced, “contains a treasure beyond dreams. It is full of… gold!”

Argentine court orders seizure of Falklands/Malvinas ‘illegal’ oil drillers’ assets

Argentina has ordered the seizure of assets belonging to foreign drilling companies operating in the vicinity of Falklands / Malvinas Islands, saying they have failed to obtain the necessary permissions from Buenos Aires to conduct exploration.

A federal judge in Tierra del Fuego, Lilian Herraez, has ordered authorities to seize the assets of five companies drilling for oil in the Falklands worth $156 mn. The measure was ordered following a request of a prosecutor from the Office of Economic Crime and Money Laundering (PROCELAC).

According to the prosecution, the order to seize assets was issued for “illegal activities of exploration, search and eventual extraction of hydrocarbons in proximity to the Falkland Islands” because the companies in question failed to obtain permits issued by “the competent authority in Argentina.”

 

 

Saudi Arabia Thwarts UN Emergency Aid for Yemen

The memo indicates that the pledge was a calculated move on the part of the Saudi government to monopolize the aid and control where it goes and when. According to VICE, the letter alarmed many aid workers who say that it was too vaguely worded, thereby giving Riyadh leeway for further delays.

“It’s really unusual for a single donor to have any substantive role once they contribute funds, let alone negotiate individual MoUs with agencies,” an anonymous official involved in the Yemen response told VICE.

He also noted the UN’s acquiesce to Riyadh’s stipulations.

Referendums have been used all across Europe as a way for people to directly express their will and have their voices heard, and Greece is fully in its right to conduct one PM Alexis Tsipras said during a late-night debate in parliament.

Police files on child sex abuse at Gordonstoun school have vanished

Official files on police investigations of child abuse at Gordonstoun, the school in the Scottish Highlands that educated the Queen’s sons and Prince Philip, appear to have gone missing or been destroyed.

In a case investigated by the Observer, a teacher named Derek Jones seriously sexually assaulted a number of children attending the junior school around 1990. He was twice questioned by police in the following years after the children told their parents what had happened. Files were forwarded to the Procurator Fiscal, Scotland’s prosecution service, but it was decided not to prosecute. The files would normally be retained, but Scotland’s Crown Office says they now cannot be found.

 

 

MK Ghattas to Netanyahu: Keep security forces away from flotilla

Joint Arab List MK Basel Ghattas sent a written message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Sunday, warning to keep security forces away from the flotilla in which he is taking part, meant to break the Israeli naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.

“Command the security forces to allow us to enter Gaza and avoid the use of force,” read the letter from Ghattas.

Israel’s government would be smart to let the flotilla through and defuse the situation. Sadly, Israel’s government is not smart, they are arrogant and conceited and they will make the wrong call on this (again).

Mass protests against the increase in electricity prices continue in the Armenian capital for the sixth day. The protesters promise to give an answer on Sunday to the proposal by the country’s president Serzh Sargsyan on the audit of the Electric Networks of Armenia distribution company. Until its completion, the government is ready to cover the costs connected with the rise in electricity prices.
Meanwhile, the protesters in central Yerevan declined the president’s proposal. According to Vaginak Shushanyan, one of the organizers of the No to Robbery public initiative, the authorities didn’t not meet any of the requirements put forward by the protesters. Nevertheless, Shushanyan promised that the participants in the protests would give their answer regarding the president’s statement by Sunday evening and announce their future plans.

 

 

Seoul’s policies responsible for growing tension in Korean Peninsula – DPRK committee

North Korea’s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland (CPRF) says the policies of Seoul are responsible for the growing tension in the Korean Peninsula. The organisation, which supervises in Pyongyang the inter-Korean relations, reacted to South Korea’s announced sanctions against Taiwan companies suspected of arms sales with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
In the Committee’s statement, published on Sunday, the organisation criticises South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye as she was unwilling to respond to Pyongyang’s peace initiatives and developed further the military cooperation with the United States and Japan under the pretext of a “nuclear threat from the North” and “violated human rights” in the DPRK.
These activities of Park Geun-hye and her allies, the statement reads, “damage greatly the relations between the North and the South and develop further the tension in the Korean Penisula.”

Iran never sought nuclear weapons – president

The Islamic Republic of Iran ahs never strived for obtaining nuclear weapons, the country’s President Hassan Rouhani told a meeting with commanders of the national armed forces on Sunday.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has never been and will never be after building destructive and inhumane weapons,” Press TV quoted him. He reiterated the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme.
“When the enemy attempts to present false perceptions of Iran to the world, we should, in return, make our utmost efforts to clear these wrong perceptions,” President Rouhani said.
He pointed to Iran’s proposal World Against Violence and Extremism (WAVE), which was adopted by the United Nations in the form of a resolution, saying that the approval of the resolution went a long way in countering the false images of Iran, Press TV reported.

New NSA whistleblower suspected behind French president surveillance leak

American and European security agencies are reportedly investigating a possible new whistleblower behind the WikiLeaks publication that exposed alleged NSA spying on top French officials, including three presidents.

The website on Tuesday released what appear to be classified NSA documents alleging the US agency spied on three successive French presidents: Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and incumbent François Hollande.

Responding to the report, Hollande called such activities unacceptable, while the French justice minister said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden could be offered symbolic asylum in the country. US President Barack Obama assured his French counterpart the US hadn’t spied on him.

Many conflicts cannot be solved without Russia – German foreign minister

This conflict [around Iran’s programme] is one of the conflicts in that region, which cannot be settled without Russia.”
The foreign minister also shared thoughts about the role of Germany.
“We should not overestimate our abilities and should not demonstrate muscles,” he said. “the international community trusts us and is expecting our political and diplomatic steps regarding major conflicts. We should not reject this responsibility.”

‘Nein Danke’ – smaller German firms see U.S. trade deal as threat

Martina Roemmelt-Fella, who owns a small, family-run turbine manufacturer in Bavaria, should be a cheerleader for a trade deal between Europe and the United States that promises to ease the flow of goods and services across the Atlantic.

But instead she fears the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) being hammered out between Brussels and Washington will give too much power to big multinationals at the expense of small companies like hers.

“The proposals are being negotiated behind closed doors with the help of 50 or 60 big corporates,” said Roemmelt-Fella, whose firm is one of the thousands of small and medium-sized companies known as the ‘Mittelstand’ that account for 89 percent of Germany’s exporters and form the backbone of the economy.

On This Day in History – Archduke Franz Ferdinand assassinated

In an event that is widely acknowledged to have sparked the outbreak of World War I, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, nephew of Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, is shot to death along with his wife by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, Bosnia, on this day in 1914.

Although the war started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia , it quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States). Although pre-war Germany had a private central bank, it was heavily restricted and inflation kept to reasonable levels. Under government control, investment was guaranteed to internal economic development, and Germany was seen as a major power. So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its industrial base flattened. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany itself. Germany’s private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping the German people in endless debt.

When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it “The German Miracle”. TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine’s Man Of The Year in 1938.

Admire US Declaration of Independence? Then LIVE those ideals; they require YOU to exist

“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.” – US Declaration of Independence, 1776

End of days for trolls

Maybe some of the columns in today’s paper will make you a little angry. Maybe you’ll just harrumph and turn the page. Maybe you’ll slam your teacup down and get up for a brisk walk around the couch. But, if your preferred method of releasing frustration is to take it out on us online, you better fill your boots.

Online trolling is about to become illegal.

For the benefit of the less-tech savvy folk, trolling is defined by the Urban Dictionary as “being a prick on the internet because you can”.

But good news. Parliament is days away from putting a ban on this online intimidation. So, to draw attention to the line and the sand and the drawing of said line in the sand, a few MPs this week read out to a camera some choice “mean tweets” they’d received.

The Delphi Declaration – Paul Craig Roberts

The Delphi Declaration asks the European peoples, especially the Germans, to do the right thing and object to the plunder of Greece by the One Percent.

This appeal to goodwill is likely to fall on deaf ears even though the pillage of Greece will create a precedent that can then be applied to Italy, Spain, France, and even Germany.

European governments, European institutions and the IMF, acting in close alliance, if not under direct control of big international banks and other financial institutions, are now exercising a maximum of pressure, including open threats, blackmailing and a slander and terror communication campaign against the recently elected Greek government and against the Greek people.

Charter-Time Warner Cable Filing Shows Huge Deal Payoffs For CEOs And Bankers

Sometimes it pays to come in second: Time Warner Cable CEO Rob Marcus stands to collect a whopping $91.9 million if the deal to sell his company to Charter Communications goes through, according to a 700-plus page preliminary proxy filed at the SEC today. He might see $21.8 million in cash, $67.1 million in equity, $396,156 in benefits — mostly for financial planning — and $2.6 million in other awards including a special bonus TWC gave execs for increasing video subs in Q1.

That last bonus is unusual, and seems to give TWC brass a special reward just for doing their jobs: The company agreed to give execs 5% of their 2015 target cash bonus if in any quarter this year the cable company “experienced a net increase in residential video subscribers.”

In Case You Are Still Confused About Who Is In Charge

The spectacle is astonishing. The European Central Bank, the EMU bail-out fund, and the International Monetary Fund, among others, are lashing out in fury against an elected government that refuses to do what it is told.

What is essential for everyone to understand is that banking is not a science. It is a religion with a bunch of made-up rules to benefit the clergy, meaning the bankers. It only works because we have all been brainwashed into believing that banking is as sacrosanct as any other church, and those ink and paper tickets represent something real.

Once human-kind realizes that banking is a manufactured fantasy world designed to exploit humans as slaves (as are the other religions), we take an important step towards freedom.

 

 

Jewish Telegraph Agency – Throughout Hillary Clinton’s life and career, U.S. Jews have been close at hand

From the man who married her grandmother to the man who married her daughter, from working a room full of bar mitzvah guests on behalf of her husband’s political career to headlining major pro-Israel events during her own, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s journey has never wandered far from Jews.

When Americans comment about the preponderance of Jewish people in our political system, we are called “anti-Semites” for promoting “sterotypes.” Yet the Israel media is not being shy at all proclaiming that candidate Hillary Clinton is surrounded and greatly influenced by a large number of Jewish people!

No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

According to the Israel media, that person is not Hillary Clinton!

‘Address Your Remarks To Downing Street’ –The Sunday Times Editor Deepens His Snowden Debacle

George Orwell once wrote:

‘I really don’t know which is more stinking, the Sunday Times or The Observer. I go from one to the other like an invalid turning from side to side in bed and getting no comfort which ever way he turns.’ (George Orwell, quoted, Bernard Crick, George Orwell: A Life, p. 233, Penguin Books, 1992)

The competition remains fierce, but the Sunday Times edged marginally ahead with a recent front-page exclusive that stank to truly celestial heights. As we noted in our previous alert, the Sunday Times dramatically claimed that Russia and China had ‘cracked the top-secret cache of files stolen by the fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden’. The ‘exclusive story’ contained precisely no evidence for its anonymous claims, no challenges to the assertions made and no journalistic balance. In a CNN interview the same day, lead reporter Tom Harper trashed his own credibility, and that of his paper, when he blurted:

 

 

Thousands of jobs lost in UK

Thousands of workers are losing their jobs across all sectors of the UK economy.

The losses belie the latest figures, hailed a miracle achievement by Prime Minister David Cameron, registering unemployment as dropping to a seven-year low of 5.5 percent.

The Delphi Declaration – On Greece and Europe

Many readers of the European and American press must be confused about what actually is happening in the negotiations between Greece (Alexis Tsipras and Yannis Varoufakis). The European Troika (the IMF, European Central Bank and European Council now object to the name and want to be called simply “the Institutions”) have stepped up their demands on Syriza. What is called “negotiation” is in reality a demand for total surrender. The Troika’s demand is to force Syriza to go back on the campaign promises that it made to voters who replaced the old right-wing Pasok (“socialist”) and Conservative New Democracy coalition, or else simply apply the austerity program to which that coalition had agreed:cutbacks in pensions, deeper austerity, more privatization selloffs, and a tax shift off business onto labor. In short, economic suicide.

China’s central bank cuts lending, deposit and reserve ratios

China’s central bank cut its benchmark lending rates by 25 basis points to 4.85 percent on Saturday, the fourth reduction since November, as it gears up to lower borrowing costs and support a slowing economy.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) also reduced one-year benchmark deposit rates by 25 basis points to 2 percent, it said in a statement on its website, adding that the reductions would take effect on Sunday.

As reported today at zerohedge.com:

China’s stock markets tumbled on Friday to near bear territory further deepening the sell-off that started two weeks ago. The Shanghai Composite, down 7.4% on the day, has fallen 19% from its June 12 high wiping out $1.25 trillion in market cap. The smaller Shenzhen and ChiNet indices also has plunged 20% from its recent peak. Even with recent declines, the Shanghai Composite Index has surged nearly 30% year-to-date. Authorities have allowed local investors to borrow tons of money from brokers to speculate in the stock market (i.e., Margin Lending), while the central bank PBOC has cut interest rates three times since November.

 

 

The Pentagon Goes Nuclear on Russia

Bets are off on what this huffin’ and puffin’ is all about. It could be about Russia daring to build a whole country close to so many NATO bases. It could be about a bunch of nutters itching to start a war on European soil to ultimately “liberate” all that precious oil, gas and minerals from Russia and the Central Asian “stans”.

Unfortunately, the whole thing is deadly serious.

NATO, meanwhile, gets ready for its next super production; Trident Juncture 2015, the largest NATO exercise after the end of the Cold War, to happen in Italy, Spain and Portugal from September 28 to November 6, with land, air and naval and special forces units of 33 countries (28 NATO plus five allies).

NATO spins it as a “high visibility and credibility” show testing its “Response Force” of 30,000 troops. And this is not only about Russia, or as a rehearsal in pre-positioning enough heavy weapons for 5,000 soldiers in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.

Russia has been a great deal more intelligent than has the US Pentagon on weapons spending.

Their weapons actually work, while US corporations continue to turn out shoddy, over-budget, way-past-deadline weapons which absolutely do not work as advertised.

 

 

US, NATO Powers Intensify Preparations for Nuclear War in Response to “Russian Aggression”

The NATO military alliance is preparing to implement a more aggressive nuclear weapons strategy in response to alleged “Russian aggression,” according to NATO sources cited by the Guardian Wednesday evening.

Proposed changes include provisions for greater involvement of nuclear forces in ongoing NATO military exercises along Russia’s borders and new guidelines for nuclear escalation against Russia, according to the NATO officials.

The alliance’s nuclear doctrine has been the subject of quiet, informal discussions “on the sidelines” of the ongoing NATO summit. The new policies will be formally articulated and confirmed at an upcoming conference of the alliance’s Nuclear Planning Group, which was rescheduled for an earlier date this week as word got around about the secretive planning.

We are being Conditized (as the fawning focus on Gary Condit and Chandra Levy right before 9/11) by the faux news presstitutes, while some very serious developments are taking place to which thinking Americans need to be paying attention are barely mentioned.

Call me silly, but a potential nuclear war against Russia by NATO is one of those issues.

But those in bowels of power in DC and NATO have a problem; they have zero credibility with the American people, and any proclaimed act of alleged “Russian belligerency” will not be accepted be accepted as the truth.

I am very concerned about a potential false flag against the US or US interests on the 4th of July, as a way to beat any last breath of skepticism on the part of the American people about who, really, is to blame, and who would actually benefit from such an atrocity.

A note to US and NATO leadership: if you are betting that this will work, as skeptical, broke, and war-weary as the American population is, you had really better think again.

 

 

10,000 Sue Syngenta Over Unapproved GMO Corn Shipped to China – U.S. Farmers Lose $5 Billion in Sales

Town hall meetings have been taking place recently regarding corn litigation with the Syngenta company.

The lawsuit is regarding claims that Syngenta sold genetically modified corn with a strain called MIR-162 to China without their approval of the modification.

“The first shipment that tested positive for MIR-162,” Hecker Law Group attorney Jacob Hecker said, “was destroyed by the Chinese in 2013. Afterwards all other shipments with trace amounts of the strain were sent back to where they came from.”

Due to the strain, China, who at the time was the third largest importer of US corn, boycotted all corn from being imported from the US.

Good; it may be possible to sue these health-destroying corporations out of existence!!

 

 

America’s health care system is still broken: Why single-payer is the only thing that will ever fix it

Now, in other news yesterday, health care stocks were spiking on Wall Street: Insurers (UnitedHealth and Aetna) and corporate hospital networks (Hospital Corporation of America) were seeing strong gains. The link between these events is, of course, obvious: The Affordable Care Act’s premium subsidies are funneled through private health insurance companies, who take a cut. Corporate hospital chains, meanwhile, prefer a well-paying customer.

Enlightened countries in Europe have figured out how to make this work, contain costs, and give patients good care; why can’t this country?!?

Several years ago, I had a really nasty cramp in my neck that would not let go.

My doctor, whose background was Spanish and Argentinian, had a talk about the fact that in Europe, I would most probably be seen by a nurse/practitioner, who would have diagnose me, and prescribed something to alleviate the cramp without the need to actually see a doctor.

The cost would have been substantially lower than it was.

 

 

Massive US Media Campaign Aims to Derail Iran Nuclear Deal

With the June 30 deadline for the Iran nuclear deal just days away, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), an organization bankrolled in large part by Republican super-hawk Sheldon Adelson, is stepping up in its typical role of spoiler, launching a new media campaign aimed at killed the pact.

UANI and its cohorts center the ads on dubiously-worded allegations of Iranian nuclear plots, and spurious claims of Iran “single-handedly” killing thousands of US ground troops during the Iraq occupation. The group’s latest campaign features demands more or less entirely in line with comments from hawkish Republican Senators in recent days, which are meant to be directly contrary to what Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says he expects out of an acceptable deal.

Unfortunately in this country, money buys foreign policy in politics, so Adelson may not be that far from his goal of buying the destruction of the P5+1 deal.

There are many issues upon which I have very vocally criticised the Obama administration; this, however, is not one of them.

IF the US government allows the P5+1 deal to fail, it will have no one but itself (and Israel) to blame for the war which will almost inevitably ensue from the failure of the deal.

 

 

30,000 Pound Bomb: U.S. Prepares To Strike Iran’s Nuke Facilities With Massive Ordnance Penetrator

As U.S. nuclear talks with Iran build to a head, with a June 30 deadline fast approaching to come to an agreement on how Iran will move forward with its nuclear program, the U.S. Air Force has been rehearsing with a 30,000 pound bunker busting bomb in case Iran continues toward developing nuclear weapons.

The bomb is called the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, or MOP, and is the largest non-nuclear weapon in the world. The massive bomb is designed to take on highly fortified and underground targets, with an ability to burrow 200 feet into the ground or through 60 feet of concrete, and then detonating.

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

And Iran’s government can barely be characterised as “defiant” with a straight face by anyone who has been watching these negotiations; there are certain things to which they have NEVER agreed, that the US claims they have, such as inspection of all military sites, and interviews with their nuclear scientists on demand.

Over the last 20 years, I have been on a journey from a place, an America I thought I knew and understood, to an America where its foreign policy has devolved into apoplectic power grabs by its money junkies in power to own all the world’s resources, no matter the cost to its citizens or the world.

I do not recognise this country anymore.

 

 

Number of refugees from Ukraine exceeding 900,000, says UN report

Number of Ukrainians who have fled to neighboring countries after the outbreak of the armed civil conflict in Donbass in spring 2014 has exceeded 900,000 and most of them have found shelter in Russia, of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees said in a report on Friday.
Information from governmental sources in the host countries suggests that the overall number of refugees seeking shelter or looking for other legal forms of residence in neighboring states has reached 900,300 people and most of them, or 746,000 have headed for Russia.

If things are so great under Poroshenko’s regime, why are these numbers so high?!?

 

 

US TO BEGIN INVASION OF SYRIA

Unbeknownst to the general public, their elected politicians do not create the policy that binds their national destiny domestically or within the arena of geopolitics. Instead, corporate-financier funded think tanks do – teams of unelected policymakers which transcend elections, and which produce papers that then become the foundation of legislation rubber stamped by “legislators,” as well as the enumerated talking points repeated ad naseum by the corporate-media.

Such a policy paper has been recently written by the notorious US policy think-tank, the Brookings Institution, titled, “Deconstructing Syria: Towards a regionalized strategy for a confederal country.” The signed and dated open-conspiracy to divide, destroy, then incrementally occupy a sovereign nation thousands of miles from America’s shores serves as a sobering example of how dangerous and enduring modern imperialism is, even in the 21st century.

Pretext ISIS: US Poured Billions Into “Moderates” Who Don’t Exist

The overthrow of the al-Assad government will lead to an Iran standing pretty much alone in the region, which is the design intent, to give the US more “sway” in the P5+1 nuclear talks, and possibly attempt to create regime change in Tehran.

But considering just how “swimmingly” the US invasion and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan have gone, coupled with the overthrow Qaddafi in Libya, and US intervention in Somalia, one might think that there might be just a “soupcon” of hesitancy by the US government to want to do this.

But of course, we are continuing to deal with a US government where one of the prime, critical criteria for employment is an absolutely pathological inability to think any scenario through to its logical conclusion.

And there is, unmentioned, the 500 lb gorilla in the living room, comfortably draped over the Bechstein piano, which no one, apparently, in the American government dares mention; that is Russia.

Although the deal with Cyprus this year has given Russians an alternative to their warm water port in Tartus, there is a question of how much aggression in Syria the US can conjure before Putin feels compelled to act in some manner, militarily. His moves here may be very asymmetric, but no less effective than direct military moves against the US.

And I would very much like to remind those in the US government and military that at this point in its history, the US military doesn’t have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes military aggression against it so dangerous.

 

 

Gazprom building global alliance with expanded Shell

Gazprom is building a global strategic alliance with energy major Royal Dutch Shell that will include asset swaps and allow the Russian gas giant to penetrate new markets, its chief executive told Reuters.

Gazprom, the world’s top gas producer, said on Thursday that Shell and its long-time gas buyers in Europe – Germany’s E.ON and Austria’s OMV – had agreed to build two new Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic sea to Germany.

In a rare interview, chief executive Alexei Miller said the agreement with Shell also foresaw an expansion of the firms’ joint $20 billion liquefied natural gas plant on the eastern island of Sakhalin as well as global upstream asset swaps.

Oh, yes, the US and European sanctions are working brilliantly….in terms of building Russia’s energy sector, that is!!!

 

 

Whistleblowers could have citizenship revoked under proposed laws

Whistleblowers with dual citizenship who speak out on Australia’s national security – including those involved in allegations that Timor-Leste’s cabinet room was bugged – could face having their citizenship revoked under proposed laws.

A bill introduced to the federal parliament by the immigration minister, Peter Dutton, on Wednesday enhances the power of the immigration minister to revoke or initiate a renunciation of citizenship for conduct deemed to relate to certain terrorism offences. The new bill seeks to strip only dual nationals of their citizenship.

The proposed section 35A of the bill also outlines that citizenship will be lost automatically for Australians who are convicted of particular offences.

While some of those offences are related to terrorism, they also include commonwealth property offences. Legal experts have warned the government has overreached in applying the revocation powers to these kind of offences.

A memo to the Abbott government: please, don’t go there.

This is such a ham-fistedly, pig-headedly, paranoicially draconian piece of legislation that I hardly know where to begin.

But of the following, I am reasonably certain; this legislation, if passed, will have an utterly chilling effect on free speech in your country, and could, as an ultimate result, lead to a “brain drain” of Australia’s best and brightest to a degree which Australia has never experienced before in its history.

The number of very sharp Australian citizens who will start to renounce their Australian citizenship, and look for less fascistic places to work and live, will leave you gobsmacked.

In op-eds, church leaders say BDS is moral response to Netanyahu’s rejection of Palestinian statehood

Over the last day or so, three remarkable op-eds by church leaders have been published in U.S. regional newspapers in support of some measure of BDS, boycott, divestment and sanctions, to end the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

The op-eds are remarkable because they honor BDS as a tool, and two of them specifically reject the equation of BDS with anti-Semitism, a charge that cowed many non-Jewish activists in times gone by. And all three slam the rightwing Israeli government for defying international opinion or using the peace process to expand. So the churches must act, the leaders say.

This is very clever. By declaring BDS a moral crusade, these church leaders have invalidated the amendment tackled onto a trade bill by the US Congress which forbids Europe from engaging in political boycotts of Israel.

60,000 military involved in E. Ukraine op – President Poroshenko

The number of government troops deployed in the conflict in eastern Ukraine has reached 60,000 troops, according to President Petro Poroshenko. The statement comes as the total of Ukrainian refugees has exceeded 900,000 people, according to UN.

 

 

EXCLUSIVE: Malaysian Pressure Forces MH17 Investigation to UN

Malaysia, frustrated by the refusal of the official international investigation-team to produce any clear evidence yet of whom to blame for the downing of the MH17 Malaysian airliner over the Ukrainian civil-war zone on 17 July 2014, has finally forced the team to request the UN to investigate. They’ve forced the original four nations on the team to accept UN adjudication of any final report. This will enable a court-proceeding to make the ultimate determination of guilt (upon which judgment penalties and compensation will be assessed), and this court-determination would inevitably allow whatever party is being blamed by the five-member official investigating team, to present its own evidence in the case, so that the court will make the ultimate determination — the official investigating team will not be performing that crucial judgmental function.

Should Paris Building Remove Mystery Swastikas From Tile Floor?

A French anti-Semitism watchdog urged the mayor of Paris to order the removal of a mosaic floor featuring swastikas that the group identified in a residential building.
The floor of the entrance of the building in Paris’ six arrondissement, an affluent and central quarter comprising the touristic Saint-Germain-des-Pres area, contains dozens of swastikas made of black mosaic and incorporated at regular intervals into the floor’s pattern, the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, wrote Thursday in a statement.

Israel Furious at Exposure of Its Crimes Against Palestinian Children

Tin shacks with inadequate water and electricity infrastructure make up the village of upper Fasayal in the Jordan Valley north of Jericho. Grinding poverty and unemployment has forced many children to leave school and to seek employment, often at the behest of their parents, on Israeli settlements … Human Rights Watch (HRW) recently released a 74-page report entitled “Ripe for Abuse – Palestinian Child Labor in Israeli Agricultural Settlements in the West Bank.” …. “Children as young as eleven work on some settlement farms, often in high temperatures. The children carry heavy loads, are exposed to hazardous pesticides, and in some cases have to pay themselves for medical treatment for work-related injuries or illness.”

 

 

BEX ALERT – Neo-Nazis doorstep holocaust survivor, deliver ‘Jews go home’ message on Star of David

Neo-Nazis have been distributing anti-Jewish propaganda ahead of an anti-Semitic rally in North London, according to an elderly person living there.

Another pathetic attempt by the Israelis to reclaim their victim status.

 

 

Bergen-Belsen Camp: The Suppressed Story

On April 15, 1945, British troops liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. The anniversary was widely remembered in official ceremonies and in newspaper articles that, as the following essay shows, distort the camp’s true history … Ghastly images recorded by Allied photographers at Belsen in mid-April 1945 and widely reproduced ever since have greatly contributed to the camp’s reputation as a notorious extermination center. In fact, the dead of Bergen-Belsen were, above all, unfortunate victims of war and its turmoil, not deliberate policy.

 

 

Israeli PM rejects international ‘diktats’ on Palestinian-Israeli conflict

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he rejects what he called “International Diktats” or the forcing of peace plans on Israel. His remarks came as French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius arrived promoting an initiative to relaunch the Israeli Palestinian peace process which collapsed in 2014 … Fabius who is on a two-day trip to the Middle East is pushing for a UN Security Council resolution that would lay out a time table for talks. He also wants to establish a support group comprising of Arab states, the European Union and UN Security Council members. Netanyahu insists he will flatly reject any proposals, “which have no true consideration for the security and needs of Israelis or other national interests of ours”.

 

 

Paul Craig Roberts Warns Greek Government May Be Assassinated In This Crisis If They Pivot East To Stop World War III

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: “The Greek people and the Greek government have before them the unique opportunity to prevent World War III. All the Greek government needs to do, if the Greek people will get behind the government, is to default on the loans, resign from the EU and from NATO, and accept the deal that the Russians have offered them….

“This would begin the unraveling of NATO. Very quickly Spain and Italy would follow. So southern Europe would desert NATO and so would Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic. NATO is the mechanism that Washington uses to cause conflict with Russia. So as the EU and NATO unravel, the ability of Washington to produce this conflict disappears.

The money-junkies have forgotten something very important about the Greek people (the same thing the Nazis forgot).

Thermopylae!

Clearly, the Greek people remember it well!

Sadly, it appears I am not alone in my expectation that the money-junkies will likely attempt either a coup or outright assassination to keep the Greek people enslaved to their private central bank system.

 

 

Swedish boat sets sail in bid to break Gaza blockade

A Swedish ship destined for Gaza set sail from a Greek port today, despite Israeli threats to prevent the vessel from reaching its destination.

The four friends had walked out to the edge of the village to spend the final hour of their fast for Ramadan.

 

 

Vatican recognises state of Palestine; Israel irked

The Vatican signed a treaty with the “State of Palestine” on Friday, saying it hoped its legal recognition of the state would help stimulate peace with Israel and that the treaty itself would serve as a model for other Mideast countries.

Vatican Foreign Minister Paul Gallagher and his Palestinian counterpart, Riad al-Malki, signed the treaty at a ceremony inside the Vatican.

Israel expressed disappointment when the Vatican announced last month that it had reached final agreement with the “State of Palestine” on the treaty regulating the life of the Catholic Church in the Palestinian territories.

It repeated that regret in a Foreign Ministry statement on Friday, saying the move hurt peace prospects and would discourage the Palestinians from returning to direct negotiations.

Odd. I thought it was Israel that was avoiding those negotiations!

 

 

A Straight Look at the Jewish Lobby

For many years Israel has violated well established standards of international law and has defied numerous United Nations resolutions in its occupation of conquered lands, in extra-judicial killings, and in its repeated acts of military aggression.

Most of the world regards Israel’s policies, and especially its oppression of Pal­estinians, as illegal and outrageous. This international consen­sus is reflected, for example, in numerous UN resolutions condemning Israel, which have been approved with overwhelming majorities.

“The whole world,“ said United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, “is demanding that Israel withdraw [from occupied Palestinian territories]. I don’t think the whole world… can be wrong.” [1]

We cannot forget that crisis is in itself a distraction as well. Whatever pain we do feel tomorrow, or the next day, or the next decade, remember who it was that caused it all: the international banks and their globalist political counterparts. No matter what happens, never be willing to accept a centralized system. No matter how reasonable or rational it might sound amid the terror of fiscal uncertainty, never give the beast what it wants. Refuse to conform to the dialectic. This is the only chance we have left to get back to true prosperity. Once we cross the line into the realm of worldwide institutionalized interdependency, we will never know prosperity or freedom again.

Greek Officials Warn “Some Banks May Not Open Monday”

Following Tsipras’ surprise referendum decision (and subsequent pulling of proposals by the institutions), Greece’s bank jog has turned into a full sprint. ATM lines began to form at 2am, minutes after the announcement and now many ATMs are out of money and, as Bloomberg reports, some Greek banks are drastically limiting cash transactions. Despite all the reassurances that “banks will open Monday,” two senior bank executives have warned that some lenders will not be able to open Monday (unless more emergency liquidity is released). Crucially, this is not just about banks being in trouble – drained of deposits electronically – this is running out of physical banknotes, there is literally no more ‘real’ money left in Greek banks.

SO TELL ME AGAIN WHY THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IS THE SYMBOL OF BLACK OPPRESSION IN AMERICA!

This whole Confederate flag issue is an attack on the First Amendment itself, to trick Americans into accepting the idea that because some people see the Confederate flag as a symbol of oppression, that justifies taking it away from everyone, including those who see it as symbolizing something else, such as family history or the right to secede from tyrannical government.

And if you fall for it; if you go along with the idea that something offensive to a minority justifies banning it for all, it will not stop with the Confederate flag. Politicians will start to ban anything they can find a few people to claim they are offended by, and there are already too many people living in this nation whose entire sense of self-worth is built on always being offended by something!

We are poised on the same slippery slope that led another nation into disaster!

Greece to hold national referendum on debt deal

The Greek PM has announced a national referendum on July 5 on the conditions of the debt deal with international creditors. It’s up to the Greek people, Tsipras said, to make a fateful decision on the country’s sovereignty, independence and future.

“These proposals, which clearly violate the European rules and the basic rights to work, equality and dignity show that the purpose of some of the partners and institutions was not a viable agreement for all parties, but possibly the humiliation of an entire people,” Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in a televised address to the nation.

Webmaster addition: The referendum will include the choice whether to stay or leave the EU.

These people are neoliberal fascists, putting the Greek government before a dilemma – ‘either you present us with an acceptable list of austerities, or we will prepare one for you’ – literally. An austerity plan you better accept, lest you may default and being expulsed from the European monetary union and maybe even the EU. That is their threat. That is what Brussels does to a brother; to one of theirs. There is not a shred of solidarity left in this miss-called ‘Union’. This ‘Union’ doesn’t deserve existing.

Greece Invokes Nuclear Option: Tsipras Calls For Referendum

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras has announced a referendum in a televised speech to the nation after another day of fractious negotiations with creditors closed without a deal.

The dramatic move comes after Athens rejected a proposal from the troika aimed at delivering some €16 billion in aid to Greece as part of an extension of the country’s second bailout program.

Protothema now says the Greek parliament will meet on Saturday and a referendum will be called as early as next week. Whether this is simply a last minute attempt to put pressure on EU finance ministers ahead of Saturday’s Eurogroup meeting remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: Tsipras is playing a dangerous game with the ECB ahead of a difficult week that could very well see the imposition of capital controls.

UPDATE: In looking through tweets and comments, plus information on financial services such as Bloomberg, Tsipras’ announcement has triggered a major panic among the heads of the too-big-to-fail financial institutions, who were eager to rake in profits selling credit default swaps against Greece’s debt, and now face a derivatives exposure many times the volume of the Greek debt itself. The derivatives losses will be enough to sink many of these institutions in a firestorm of paper that will make 2008 look like a speed bump in comparison.

It is already clear from the many protests in Greece which was the Greek people will vote. From now to the 5th is insufficient time to get vote riggers into place in Greece or to mount a propaganda campaign that the Greek people are evenly divided on the issue, to conceal another stolen election. Nobody is going to believe a claim that the Greek people will vote themselves back into the slavery of the ECB and the IMF.

I would not be surprised to see an orchestrated effort to get Tsipras out of office next week, if not an outright assassination attempt. The money-junkies have a long history of murdering uncooperative heads of state, and from their point of view they have no choice.

Gettysburg park yanks Confederate flag items from bookstore

Visitors to Gettysburg National Military Park will no longer be able to purchase numerous pieces of Confederate flag merchandise from its bookstore.

National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said Thursday that “stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores,” a local affiliate reported.

The decision to pull the merchandise comes in the wake of a the shooting death of nine black members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina. Dylann Storm, 21, was arrested June 18 in connection with the killings, which took place the previous night.

This is just getting silly. Confederate flags have no place in a park commemorating one of the great battles of the Civil War?!? P.C. run amok! Yes, Dylann posed with a picture of the confederate flag. We also had the flags of Apartheid South Africa and Rhodesia on his jacket, but nobody is banning those flags!

This whole Confederate flag issue is an attack on the First Amendment itself, to trick Americans into accepting the idea that because some people see the Confederate flag as a symbol of oppression, that justifies taking it away from everyone, including those who see it as symbolizing something else, such as family history or the right to secede from tyrannical government.

And if you fall for it; if you go along with the idea that something offensive to a minority justifies banning it for all, it will not stop with the Confederate flag.

Latin American Revolutions Under Attack

Do not take the Latin American revolutions for granted.

They inspired the entire Planet. They brought hope to every corner of our scarred Earth. But now they are themselves in need of our support.

If left alone, they would thrive for decades and centuries. But the Empire is once again on the offensive. It is shaking with fury. It is ready to invade, to smash, burn to ashes all the hopes, all that which had been achieved.

Don’t believe in the “common wisdom” which proclaims that the rulers of the world simply “closed their eyes” more than a decade ago; that George W. Bush was “too busy” ravishing the Middle East, therefore “allowing” most of the Latin American countries to “sneak away” from the iron grip of the Empire.

We restarted the Cold War: The real story about the NATO buildup that the New York Times won’t tell you

As of this week, leaders who know nothing about leading, thinkers who do not think and opinion-shaping poseurs such as Tom Friedman are confident enough in their case to sally forth with it: The Cold War returns, the Russians have restarted it and we must do the right thing—the right thing being to bring NATO troops and materiel up to Russia’s borders, pandering to the paranoia of the former Soviet satellites as if they alone have access to some truth not available to the rest of us.

James Stavridis, the former admiral and NATO commander, quoted in Wednesday’s New York Times: “I don’t think we’re in the Cold War again—yet. I can kind of see it from here.”

I can kind of see it, too, Admiral, and cannot be surprised: NATO has missed the Cold War since the Wall came down and the Pentagon’s creature in Europe commenced a quarter-century of wandering in search of useful enemies. At last, the very best of them is back.

FLASHBACK – Israel, Genocide, and the ‘Logic’ of Zionism

History is full of ironies: World War I, marketed to Americans as a “war to end all wars,” paved the way for an even more massive slaughter. The invasion and conquest of Iraq – which was supposed to augur what George W. Bush hailed as a “global democratic revolution” – instead ushered in a new era of chaos, bloodshed, and tyranny in the region. And in the year 2014, the state of Israel, founded in large part as a reaction to the Holocaust, has embarked on a policy of genocide in Gaza.

The Israelis and their international amen corner are increasingly open about this: a recent article in the Times of Israel – since taken down – was quite explicit in averring that Israel’s “right of self-defense” includes the option of wiping out the entire population of Gaza:

FLASHBACK – Why Israel Lies

All governments lie, as I.F. Stone pointed out, including Israel and Hamas. But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it. It routinely paints a picture for the outside world that is diametrically opposed to reality. And all of us reporters who have covered the occupied territories have run into Israel’s Alice-in-Wonderland narratives, which we dutifully insert into our stories—required under the rules of American journalism—although we know they are untrue.

$200 Million Went to House Members to Pass Fast Track – Here’s Who Took the Cash

TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.

Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.

Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a “hero” in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.

 

 

Protesters block construction of massive telescope on sacred Hawaiian mountain

Builders pulled back from Mauna Kea as hundreds of protesters set up roadblocks to oppose construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope on top of Hawaii’s sacred mountain. State and local police arrested a dozen demonstrators.

Construction vehicles and their police escorts “were stopped repeatedly by more than 300 protesters who set up about two dozen ‘lines of defense’ across the Mauna Kea access road,” reported West Hawaii Today.

Claire and I have been to that mountain top (before the new construction started). I do not recall seeing any of these Hawaiians concerned for the sacred mountain up there picking up all the trash alongside the road.

 

 

Vast Majority of NY Gun Owners Refuse to Comply with SAFE Act

But more than two years after the SAFE Act was established, the residents of New York have largely failed to comply on a massive scale. Apparently, the State Police have been reluctant to disclose the number of registrations, despite numerous Freedom of Information requests, and understandably so. Earlier this week they finally fessed up to their dismal numbers.

 

 

Sean Hannity: Ban Rap Albums Alongside Confederate Flag

Sean Hannity raised his hand on his radio show Thursday to ask a question regarding the decision of many major retailers to stop selling the Confederate flag: “Can you still buy a Jay Z CD at Walmart? Does the music department at Sears have any Ludacris albums? Can I download 50 Cent on Amazon?”

As Media Matters points out, the Fox News and conservative talk show host proceeded to guide his listeners down an outrageous slope equating a symbol of slavery, oppression and treason to the periodically problematic lyrics that appear in hip-hop songs.

 

 

SC Cop Fired for Confederate Flag Boxer Shorts Pic, While Other Cops Kill Innocent People and Nothing Happens

What’s insulting about this has nothing to do with the fact that everyone’s eyeballs have now been assaulted with this cheesy picture of North Charleston Police Sgt. Shannon Dildine in his boxers.

What’s insulting about this is that, because it fits the political agenda with the timing of the Charleston shooting and the divide-and-conquer plot being run against us all, they actually fired this guy over this picture. The media is taking lots of time to make the North Charleston PD look like a real stand-up organization for taking action on this (what a great PR move, by the way). A huge deal is being made out of this in the mainstream press.

Meanwhile, we live in a country where on average more than two people a day are killed by police, regardless of race, creed, age, religion, sex, etc. So many other officers who commit so much more egregious acts are never suspended or even reprimanded, let alone actually fired.

 

 

Common Chemicals May Trigger Cancer

A global taskforce of 174 scientists from leading research centers across 28 countries studied the link between mixtures of commonly encountered chemicals and the development of cancer.

The study selected 85 chemicals not considered carcinogenic to humans and found 50 supported key cancer-related mechanisms at exposures found in the environment today.

 

 

Military is OK with Confederate flag — for now

The Confederate cause is deeply ingrained in American military history, making the country’s current debate over whether to retire the “rebel flag” all the more pertinent to service members who view it as important to their heritage — important enough to display in their workplaces or even as tattoos.

 

 

UNSC calls on Saudi Arabia to lift Yemen blockade

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has urged Saudi Arabia to lift its blockade on Yemen.

The UNSC released a unanimous statement on Thursday, stressing that ships carrying food, fuel and other vital supplies must be permitted to enter ports in Yemen which is on the brink of famine.

The 15-member council said in its statement that there is “an urgent need for ongoing commercial supplies to enter Yemen as a humanitarian imperative.”

Pentagon Steps Up Anti-Russia Rhetoric Amid Eastern Europe Buildup

With an eye on dramatically revising the timeline of what has actually happened in Eastern Europe in the past few weeks, Pentagon officials are slamming Russia with a series of allegations that Russia is building up in the region as a simple act of aggression.

Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work accused Russia of threatening further nuclear deployments in Eastern Europe as “the ultimate escalation,” and vowed to prepare US responses, while Gen. Philip Breedlove accused Russia of plotting further actions in Eastern Ukraine.

In reality, Russia’s announcements of deployments and potential redeployments in Eastern Europe have been entirely reactionary to NATO announcements in the days prior. The US has announced massive “pre-positioning” of battle tanks and artillery along the Russian border, and is pushing a NATO force of 40,000 troops to be set up right on the Russian frontier.

A short memo to the White House, Pentagon, Congress, and the state department: were I you, I would be very, very careful about the accusations you’re hurling against Russia.

Because, you see, the US government, at this moment in its history, has zero credibility with the American people, who are war weary, war skeptical, and many of whom are financially hurting beyond belief because of the consistent offshoring/outsourcing of jobs which used to be the underpinning of what was the American Middle Class.

Oh, and did I mention a burgeoning anger out there, because of the sense that alleged “representatives” seem to only represent the monied and privileged who pay them handsomely to further their agendas?!?

The economy is on the teetering edge of collapse; people know it; and it may not take that much to push some people over the edge.

How that anger will play out, I do not know; as a Christian pacifist, I will never advocate violence. But I can understand how people can be driven to these kinds of acts.

So instead of crying “wolf” to give people another artificially constructed “bad guy” for Americans to hate (sort of like Emmanuel Goldstein in Orwell’s “1984”,)I have a couple of suggestions for you;

  1. Fire the Federal Reserve. We all know it is no more “Federal” than is the company Federal Express.
  2. Create money (as you are Constitutionally able to do) to be used as a public utility, not as a loan at interest, as are all pieces of US currency in circulation today.
    3. Incentivize companies to keep good paying jobs here; reduce the burdens of over-regulation, which many times, in and of itself, forces companies away from the US.
    4. Stop squandering money on wars of aggression.
    5. Fix America’s crumbling infrastructure.

Yes, I know, all these would be….logical.

But perhaps a little logic right now would be infinitely preferable to a war against an adversary you have yourself created, through the US and IMF engineering of the putsch in Kiev last year.

 

 

GM wheat crop fails to repel bugs, £3m trial branded ‘a waste’

A controversial trial of genetically modified (GM) wheat has failed to repel pests any more effectively than ordinary crops, scientists have found.

Researchers attempted to engineer a variety of wheat to emit an odor that deters aphids in the hope of reducing the amount of pesticides required by plants.

The crops, nicknamed “whiffy wheat,” were successful in lab tests, but succumbed to aphids when trialed in the field.

“Well, if it works in the lab, that’s good enough for us!” — Monsatan

 

State Dept. admits Hillary Clinton may have lied about Benghazi emails

With the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision on Thursday getting enormous media attention, hardly any news coverage was given to the State Department conceding that it received 15 emails involving Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton it did not previously possess on the Benghazi terrorist attack and its aftermath, according to the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, on Thursday night. In essence, it shows that Hillary Clinton, once again, is alleged to have lied about the emails she claims she turned over to the State Department from her possibly illegal Internet server.

Benghazi panel says Hillary Clinton didn’t turn over all Libya emails, despite her claims

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton didn’t turn over all of her work-related emails to the department despite her claims to have done so, the Benghazi investigative committee charged Thursday in a statement raising new questions about the Democratic presidential candidate’s email practices.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican and the Benghazi panel chairman, said the State Department informed his panel that it did not have in its possession some emails related to Benghazi and Libya that Mrs. Clinton had exchanged with longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal, and which he turned over to the committee.

NATO to offer more aid to Ukraine, but no offensive weapons

NATO members agreed on Thursday to step up support for Ukraine with more air traffic data and assistance in countering roadside bombs, but member states stopped short of offensive weapons, which Kiev has sought in its battle with Russian-backed separatists.

A new trust fund to be established “will aim at de-mining and also on countering improvised explosive devices. And this is vital for saving lives,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference after a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine commission.

NATO defense ministers are set to conclude two days of talks in Brussels later Thursday. The ministers have focused primarily on concrete steps toward strengthening the alliance militarily, enabling to respond more quickly to crises. Members have agreed to increase the size of its crisis-response force and to streamline the political process for approving the mobilization of troops.

You just have to LOVE the way NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg lies with impunity.

The violations have come NOT from the side of the breakaway republics, but primarily from the Ukrainian military.

This is precisely what the OCSE has been reporting; apparently, honest reporting of the facts of the matter are frowned on by the NATO high command.

 

 

Poroshenko inks permission for foreign troops in Ukraine

The Ukrainian president has sealed amendments to the law that allow foreign troops to be present in Ukraine as part of an international peacekeeping force. The legislation also potentially allows the presence of weapons of mass destruction in the country.

Adopted by the Ukrainian Parliament (the Rada) earlier this month and signed by President Petro Poroshenko on Thursday, the amendments establish the necessary legal background and conditions for stationing foreign troops in the country. Kiev hopes that this will help to stabilize the situation in the war-torn eastern regions of Ukraine.

Poroshenko said earlier that Ukraine had the right to turn to the UN Security Council with the request for deploying peacekeepers in an effort to establish peace in the country. At the same time the law bans military units from countries “involved in military aggression against Ukraine” from participating in peacekeeping deployments.

This is a really, really bad move on the part of both Ukraine’s Rada and Poroshenko, because my bet is, the troops he will get will NOT be the UN’s troops but NATO’S or the United States Military, which will simply exacerbate the situation between Russia and Ukraine (and the US) even further.

The US, at the UN Security Council, can simply ban any deployment of UN troops to Ukraine with a veto; I wonder if either members or the Ukrainian Rada or Poroshenko considered this before they made passed this legislation into law.

 

 

‘THEIR rules’: When will the media ask Hillary about Bill Clinton’s problematic relationship with the Confederate flag?

Since GOP candidates are getting asked flag questions, when will someone in the MSM get around to asking Hillary Clinton a flag question? Specifically, we’d like to know what she thinks about the bill her husband signed as Governor of Arkansas that dedicated one of the stars on the state’s flag to the Confederacy.

The text from the bill reads, “The blue star above the word ‘ARKANSAS’ is to commemorate the Confederate States of America”:

US To Begin Invasion of Syria

Unbeknownst to the general public, their elected politicians do not create the policy that binds their national destiny domestically or within the arena of geopolitics. Instead, corporate-financier funded think tanks do – teams of unelected policymakers which transcend elections, and which produce papers that then become the foundation of legislation rubber stamped by “legislators,” as well as the enumerated talking points repeated ad naseum by the corporate-media.

Such a policy paper has been recently written by the notorious US policy think-tank, the Brookings Institution, titled, “Deconstructing Syria: Towards a regionalized strategy for a confederal country.” …

THIS BLOG IS NOW ILLEGAL ON BOTH SIDES OF THE POND

On Wednesday, Congress passed another piece of anti-boycott legislation, potentially even more important in its impact, as part of a trade deal with the European Union’s Trade Promotion Authority.

Essentially, the amendment states that if EU countries want free trade with the US, they can’t engage in politically motivated boycotts against Israel, including areas that came under Israel’s control in the Six Day War.

Do you get it, yet? Do you get that Washington DC is a puppet government ruling this nation at the direction of and for the benefit of Israel? The Iraqis refused to live under foreign puppet rule. The Syrians refuse to live under foreign puppet rule. The Iranians refuse to live under foreign puppet rule. The Yemenis refuse to live under foreign puppet rule. The Cubans refuse to live under foreign puppet rule. The Chileans refuse to live under foreign puppet rule.

So why are you so comfortable with it?

 

 

Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Sides With the Wrong People for the Wrong Reasons at the Wrong Time

By siding with the Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in passing “fast-track” trade authority as a step toward signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), President Barack Obama triangulated against labor unions, environmentalists, consumer activists, and the base of his party.

The 60-38 vote in the Senate to give the president (and the next president) more executive power to negotiate trade agreements, which garnered the support of thirteen Democratic Senators, followed months of bitter in-fighting among Democrats.

President Obama not only expended his own “political capital” by pushing for fast-track but that of the Democratic Party too. He had a clear choice: either side with workers, environmentalists, consumers, and progressives – or side with Wall Street, Big Pharma, Walmart, and the Koch Brothers.

Obama, and every single Congressional representative who voted for this, have committed treason against this country, and have demonstrated, painfully clearly,just who they truly are; slaves to the international corporate community, which has bought their collective fealty with cold hard cash.

Vatican signs historic accord with Palestine

The Vatican on Friday signed a historic first accord with Palestine, two years after officially recognising it as a state.

The accord, a treaty covering the life and activity of the Church in Palestine, was the first since the Vatican recognised the Palestinian state in February 2013.

The treaty, which took 15 years of negotiations to complete, was agreed in principle last month and bitterly condemned by Israel as a setback for the peace process.

The Vatican’s recognition of the state of Palestine followed a November 12 vote in favour of recognition by the UN General Assembly.

Vatican officials have described it as reflecting the Church’s desire to see the conflict in the Holy Land resolved by a “two-state” solution.

Good on the Vatican for this!!

 

 

McCain Blows His Top Over US Inability to Abandon Russian Rocket Engines

US Senator John McCain is blowing a gasket over America’s inability to find a suitable substitution for Russia’s RD-180 engines, accusing his Republican fellows of playing into Moscow’s hands, US journalist Tim Mak notes.

Mr. McCain, the problem is that you and your associates in the Congress, that grand and benevolent asylum for the helpless and infirm, looked the other way while American corporations boosted their profits by abandoning domestic manufacturing and buying products from cheaper suppliers located in nations with lower taxes and regulatory burdens. And this is the result. The United States can’t do what it used to so. We can’t make good rocket engines. We can’t go back to the Moon. Hell, we can’t even get our own astronauts up to the space station an earlier generation of Americans built! Hell, we can’t even make an automobile ignition switch that won’t shut off while driving!

You members of Congress made this mess, going back forty years. Stop trying to blame Russia for this. Russia knows what you all forgot. A nation’s eocnomy must have manufactured products and agricultural produce to sell to other nations in order to prosper, or at least avoid a billion and a half dollar a day trade deficit such as the US now suffers.

This is all your fault, John. You and your cronies in Congress. Stop trying to find a scapegoat, man up, admit your mistakes, and start rebuilding our technology and manufacturing sectors!

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL ADMITS DELETING TEXT MESSAGES AFTER EX-IM BANK FOIA REQUEST

In today’s consequence-less world – where only the poor are punished – news that a top official at a controversial U.S. export finance agency deleted text messages sent within days of the 2014 midterm elections after a watchdog group filed an open records request for the messages, will come as no surprise whatsoever. The ‘excuse’ given by Ex-Im Bank’s chief of staff Scott Schloegel – because as we saw yesterday, there is no accountability – he “deleted, by mistake, the messages on my phone for the period in question.” Most transparent administration ever…

With funding for the Ex-Im Bank is set to expire at the end of the month, and Congressional Republicans indicating that that they will allow it to do so, effectively shutting down the agency, the controversial crony capitalism creating agency will continue to make headlines. But as Free Beacon reports, the details may never actually come out as to just what this group did…

The complete lack of responsibility is simply embedded in the culture of the Federal government at this point.

Nothing anyone says who allegedly represents you can ever be taken seriously anymore by any thinking American, except, perhaps, for the odd weather report which turns out to be accurate by accident!

 

 

Washington Cathedral dean on Confederate flags: ‘It is time to take those windows out’

The dean of Washington National Cathedral has called for two stained-glass windows featuring Confederate flags to be taken down from the Gothic edifice, in yet another instance of institutions reconsidering countless tributes to the Southern cause.

“It is time to take those windows out,” said the Very Rev. Gary Hall in a Thursday (June 25) announcement.

I find it amazing that Charlie Hebdo can publish intentionally offensive and insulting cartoons about Muslims and Christians and it is called free speech, but there is a demand to erase the flag of Southern Secession because somewhere (we are told) someone’s feeling might be hurt over events that happened before any of us were born.

I have to ask how many of the politicians that are screaming about the “racist” Confederate flag proudly display the flag of apartheid Israel in their office.

 

 

THE FIVE HORSEMEN (AND ONE HORSEWOMAN) OF EUROPE’S MONETARY APOCALYPSE

As the late great U.S. comedian and social commentator extraordinaire George Carlin once said, the table is tilted, the game is rigged. Nowhere is this truer than in today’s Europe, where power is increasingly concentrated in the hands of unelected, unaccountable bankers and bureaucrats. The result is that representative democracy is on its last legs and national sovereignty (that dirty “S” word) could soon be a thing of the past.

Europe’s tilted table is dominated by the five presidents of its main institutions. Politico calls them, the “Five Horsemen of the Euro’s Future.” Or as I call them, the “Five Horsemen of Europe’s Monetary Apocalypse.” At the head of the table – the same negotiating table that is now being used as a platform for browbeating Greece’s upstart leaders into submission (see this image for that table and those sitting around it) – is Mario Draghi, Europe’s central banker-in-chief.

 

 

Suicide attack claimed by ISIS kills 25 at Kuwait Shiite mosque, 202 wounded

A suicide bomber killed 25 people when he blew himself up inside a packed Shiite Muslim mosque in Kuwait city during Friday prayers, the Interior Ministry said, the first attack of its kind in the major oil-exporting country.

Extremist group ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, which also wounded 202 people according to the Interior Ministry, in the district of Sawaber in the eastern part of the Kuwaiti capital.

 

 

Lone wolf extremists like Dylann Roof are easy to develop but hard to track

Dylann Roof, the alleged shooter in the Charleston, S.C., church massacre, was the architect of his own radicalization, drawing from the deep well of online hate to transform himself into a lone wolf domestic terrorist, according to law enforcement officials and experts on the white supremacy movement.

Every new “terror” attack creates a major PR problem for the US Government. The NSA spying was supposed to protect us from terror. That was one reason we were told to stop whining about the Fourth Amendment and the NSA’s proven pilfering of Americans’ business secrets for a little insider trading during the NSA lunch hour! So every time one of these conveniently-timed attacks happens, the US Government has to explain why this massive and unconstitutional spy system didn’t work, in a way that doesn’t result in the public demanding the entire waste of taxpayer money be scrapped. And this is the latest propaganda; the terrorists are “lone wolves” that don’t leave any online indications of their plans (except for the 2400 word manifesto Dylann Roof posted on his own website, which NSA apparently missed.)

We are therefore left with only two possible interpretations. The first is that the NSA spy system does not work. This is supported by 6 NSA encryption challenges we issued at my own website, none of which were solved (although many did try.) The government may know the system is a failure, but given their behavior with Obamacare and Human-caused Global Warming, it is clear we have a government unwilling or unable to ever admit a mistake.

The second possibility is that these events which dovetail so perfectly with the government’s various agendas are in fact staged false-flag hoaxes, a far more common occurrence in history that you were led to believe by your public school education.

Either choice is bad news for the American people.

Vatican Foreign Minister Paul Gallagher said he hoped the Holy See’s recognition “may in some way be a stimulus to bringing a definitive end to the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

He signed the treaty with his Palestinian counterpart, Riad al-Malki, and said it could be a model for other Middle Eastern countries.

Israel Uncooperative After Historic Church in the Holy Land Burned, Vandalized

The state of Israel is blocking the release of details on the recent arson attack against a historical Catholic church by the Sea of Galilee, namely the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Tabgha. It resides at the site where Christ miraculously multiplied loaves and fish to feed 5,000 people.

Aside from being damaged by the fire, the church was also vandalized with Hebrew graffiti messages such as “Death to non-Jews” and “False idols will be eliminated.” The incident marked the second time since last year the building has been attacked.

Sixteen Jewish seminary students were arrested, but they were released hours later. Thus far, the crime remains unpunished.

 

 

FLASHBACK – Is The Holocaust A New ‘Religion’w/10 Commandments?

According to the Israeli philosophy professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz (photo), the ‘Holocaust’ is a new religion. Leibowitz’ countrymen Shraga Elam, Gilad Atzmon, Yoshua Shalev and others have further developed this concept, reasoning like this: Most Jews today are either atheists or shun the religion of Judaism. Therefore, the Jewish people had to adopt belief in the ‘Holocaust’ as their new religion. They have spread this religion all over the world. ‘Holocaust’ museums are the new houses of worship and are present in most major cities. The new religion has its commandments, its decrees, its prophets, its high priests, its circle of saints, its rituals and its pilgrimages. It knows neither mercy, nor forgiveness, nor clemency but only the duty of vengeance. If you question the ‘Holocaust Religion’, you will go to prison.

 

 

USA, Not Sure Who Cyber-Hacked Them, Decides To Blame China

China is the “leading suspect” in the massive hack of a US government agency holding the personnel records of millions of Americans, US intelligence chief James Clapper has said.

Clapper has just admitted that the massive NSA spy operation is a total failure, since protecting US IT infrastructure was its main purported purpose, the reason we were supposed to stop whining about the Fourth Amendment while the NSA looted our business secrets and stole naked photos of our lovers, etc. NSA just had a major test of its credibility … and came up lacking. (Not that anyone would believe them if they said they did know it was China anyway).

Why Banks Rob Depositors: “Because That’s Where the Money Is”

With the formation of groups like the Orwellian “Better Than Cash Alliance,” plans are underway to eliminate cash altogether and leave the public with little choice but to keep all their money in a digital account. While using only electronic money may seem to be more “efficient,” it makes it possible for authorities to track all of your financial dealings AND even allow banks to impose a Negative Interest Rate Policy (NIRP) upon you.

Without measures to prevent block them, account holders with cash balances might choose to withdraw and hoard paper currency. That would be the simplest way to escape negative interest rates.

But with funds trapped inside of bank accounts, bankers could simply deduct the negative rate charge from each customer’s balance. (Question: Would not such “digital cash balance robbery” be just a modernized version of what Willie Sutton was doing back in the day?)

 

 

Gaza flotilla ship ‘sabotaged’ days before expected arrival

One of the ships taking part in a flotilla headed towards the Gaza Strip was sabotaged south of Crete, an activist aboard one of the ships said Thursday.

Israeli-born Swedish activist Dror Feiler told Nazareth-based al-Shams radio that the ship had been sabotaged by professionals, and would have sunk if sailed at sea.

“Somebody went underneath the ship at night and sabotaged its propellers, just like they sabotaged the same ship in 2011,” Fieler said referring to similar damage that was inflicted upon a ship participating in a previous flotilla.

Now, who would do a dastardly thing like that?

Google is bringing free WiFi to NYC by converting old phone booths into Wifi hotspots, complete with charging stations and a Media hub.

Sidewalk Labs, the Google-backed urban innovation startup unveiled this month, has picked its first project—bringing free, fast Wi-Fi to cities around the world.
Today it announced it is leading a group of investors acquiring Control Group and Titan, among the companies working on the LinkNYC network to blanket New York City with free, superfast Wi-Fi. The two have merged to form Intersection, which will oversee the rollout of LinkNYC this fall and then seek to install similar technology in other cities.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Gay Marriage Bans in All 50 States

In a landmark ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

I find it hard to believe that so many people scream about the need for population control and yet fail to realize humans have a natural built-in population control mechanism in homosexuality. Careful study of history clearly shows that as social stress increases, the per-capita incidence of homosexuality increases. Maybe instead of “tolerating” the gays we should realize that they are indispensable to the long term survival of the human race!

That Most Terrorists Aren’t Muslim May ‘Come as a Surprise’–if You Get Your News From Corporate Media

Since the Al Qaeda attacks on September 11, 2001, the New York Times (6/23/15) reports:

extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the United States…. But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise.

The “surprise” is that more people are killed by “white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims”: 48 vs. 26 since 9/11, according to a study by the New America Foundation. (More comprehensive studies cited in a recent New York Times op-ed–6/16/15–show an even greater gap, with 254 killed in far-right violence since 9/11, according to West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center, compared to 50 killed in jihadist-related terrorism.)

There has been some confusion why Germany and the Eurozone are so strict in negotiating with France and unwilling to concede even to the smallest of what they deem as outlandish Greek demands. The reason is not so much whether Spain or even Italy, both countries with soaring unemployment, a lost generation and a sweeping movement against “austerity”, follow with comparable demands should Europe concede to Tsipras, but France, where the frontrunner for the next president, the National Front’s Marine Le Pen, has just warned that not only is a Grexit inevitable, but that France would follow shortly.

On the Charleston Tragedy

We condemn any and all such acts of savagery, and call for swift and severe punishment for anyone who is found guilty of having any part in this heinous crime.

At the same time, we are deeply saddened to watch the disgusting attempts by some media representatives, self-appointed “historians”, activists, and even elected officials to exploit this national tragedy by using it for political purposes, and as an excuse to advance their hate-filled agenda, by calling for an all-out war on the Confederate flag and our Confederate heritage, beginning with the removal of the flag from a Veterans’ memorial on the Capitol grounds in South Carolina, over 100 miles away. These blatant attempts to incite violence and further divide the citizens of this country are despicable, and The Virginia Flaggers call on all those of Southern ancestry to resist any and all endeavors to use this tragedy as a platform to erase our history and attack the honor of our Confederate veterans.

Now that Obama has his fast-track authority, we will see this whole push to ban the Confederate flag fade away.

US Double Standards on UNHRC treatment: Sri Lanka & Israel

Sri Lanka and Israel have been both accused of violating international humanitarian law (IHL) and international human rights law (IHRL) at UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva, but in dealing with these two nations the United States has taken two contradictory positions: the US has supported the Israeli decision to boycott the UNHRC sessions that discuss Israeli violations while the US was critical of the previous Rajapaksa regime’s decision to maintain a distance from the Geneva process. U.S. Ambassador-designate to Sri Lanka Atul Keshap

Israel refused entry to a UNHRC official for investigation of alleged violations in the Gaza Strip during its battle with Hamas.

In fact, the US sponsored three resolutions critical the manner in which Sri Lanka handled the final stages of the military battle against the secessionist Tamil Tigers bringing accountability and transparency into the debate and deliberations.

Sneak Attack on Net Neutrality Picks Up Steam in the House

“Maybe every so often we can be on the side of the American people,” Rep. Jose Serrano said, “and not corporations.”

Those are fighting words — but unfortunately the House majority doesn’t seem to be heeding them. Not when it comes to Net Neutrality.

This afternoon the House appropriations committee voted against two amendments — one from Serrano, one from Rep. Nita Lowey — to remove anti-Net Neutrality language from a must-pass government-funding package.

The anti-Net Neutrality provisions — buried deep within this 158-page bill — would strip the FCC of the money it needs to enforce its open Internet protections. The provisions would also prevent the rules from remaining in effect until after the court cases challenging them have been decided — a process that could take years.

‘Russia has no aggressive plans, will always prefer political settlement’ – Putin

Russia is not threatening anyone and will always prefer peaceful solutions to international conflicts, President Vladimir Putin has said, adding that military forces are still important as a guarantee of national sovereignty.

“We are not threatening anyone and we seek to resolve all conflict situations through political means, with respect towards the international law and other nations’ interests,” he stated on Thursday in his speech before graduates of military academies. Putin emphasized in his speech that Russia was an open country, ready to cooperate with any nation on equal conditions.

The Russian leader added that he saw many challenges to the country, including some in the immediate vicinity of Russia’s borders. And these challenges were the main reason the country needed strong, modern and adequately armed military force, he said.

Lancashire councillors prevented from blocking proposals for UK’s first fracking site, says council member

County councillors had been due to decide whether or not to approve the UK’s first fracking site, near Preston, on 24 June. However, after adjourning the meeting several times, they decided to postpone the final decision until 29 June to allow them more time to process “secret” legal advice they had been given earlier in the day.

According to one of the those present, Councillor Paul Hayhurst, the advice essentially said they had no legal grounds for blocking the application and if they did so they could expect a costly legal battle with the applicant – the gas company Cuadrilla – which they would probably lose. As a result, he believes the councillors went from a position where they were ready to block the development to one where they were narrowly in favour.

 

 

Pentagon accuses Russia of ‘playing with fire’ over nuclear threats

A senior Pentagon official has warned that Russia is “playing with fire” by suggesting it would threaten the use of nuclear weapons in international disputes, and added that Russia is attempting an intimidation campaign against Nato.

Robert Work, the US Deputy Secretary of Defence, told a House Armed Services subcommittee that Russia was trying to control the escalation of tensions by invoking the threat of nuclear weapons.

He said: “Anyone who thinks they can control escalation through the use of nuclear weapons is literally playing with fire.”

“Escalation is escalation, and nuclear use would be the ultimate escalation.”

The Kremlin has not made any direct nuclear threats, and Work did not specify and particular comments.

World Health Organization Determines That Major Herbicide, 2,4-D, May Cause Cancer

On Tuesday, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) determined that the widely used herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) is “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Group 2B). The determination comes as Dow Chemical begins a limited roll-out of its “Enlist Weed Control System,” a package of “Enlist” corn or soybean seeds, which are genetically engineered to withstand 2,4-D and glyphosate, and a premix formulation of the two herbicides called “Enlist Duo.” Dow and USDA project these crops will increase agricultural use of 2,4-D by a massive three to seven times over current levels by 2020, depending on how widely Enlist crops are planted [1].

Was Abraham Lincoln really the great emancipator?

Quite honestly I don’t think he was. I believe that a better description of Lincoln was that he was anti-slavery.
But that just the same thing isn’t it???
No, at the time there were devote abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison that simply believed that slavery was wrong, these were the great revolutionaries, the free thinkers, thetrue Americans. Thenthere was Lincoln that was simply anti-slavery. This meant that he didn’t want slavery in hiscountry and he also didn’t want the freed slaves in his country either. He basically wanted to deport all freed slaves to the countries such as Liberia, Guyana and Belize, he even thought about sending the slaves to what is now Panama, to construct a canal (Sound familiar??). So he wanted to free slaves then enslave them in Panama.

Read the following quotes by Lincoln and judge for yourself

When asked, “Why not let the South go in peace?”
Lincoln replied: “I can’t let them go. Who would pay for the government?”

In order to coalesce the forces in the North, Lincoln had to stage an incident to inflame the populace, which he did. The firing on Sumter was, by his own admission, a setup for just such action. Lincoln was aware that provisioning Sumter could provoke a war.

Lincoln’s letter to Gustavus Fox on 1 May, 1861, makes it clear that he was pleased by the result of the firing on Ft Sumter… “You and I both anticipated that the cause of the country would be advanced by making the attempt to provision Ft Sumter, even if it should fail; and it is no small consolation now to feel that our anticipation is justified by the result.”

Abraham Lincoln said the following on September 18, 1858 in a speech in Charleston, Illinois:
“I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races [applause]: that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.” — Reply by Abraham Lincoln to Stephen A. Douglas in the first joint debate, Ottowa, IL; 21 Aug 1858

Israel lobby pushing US to thwart nuclear deal with Iran: Analyst

American Abrams Battle Tanks Fire in Bulgaria for First Time

American battle tanks will be deployed to Bulgaria this weekend and conduct live-fire exercises across the Black Sea from Russia for the first time.

As part of a maneuver dubbed “Power Shock,” the pair of M1A2 Abrams battle tanks are scheduled to be flown from Ramstein Air Base in Germany to the Novo Selo training area in Bulgaria. They’ll be joined by 15 U.S. Army soldiers from the “Speed and Power” battalion out of Fort Stewart, Georgia.

The training exercise is part of a series of NATO war games taking place at Europe’s eastern borders in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region. Earlier this week, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would add more than 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles to its nuclear arsenal this year.

 

 

Confederate controversy has flags flying off shelves

The Confederate flag flap has sales of the “Stars and Bars” booming – at least wherever it is still available.

Some of the nation’s biggest retailers have pulled Confederate battle flag items from their shelves and websites in the wake of last week’s massacre that left nine black congregants dead inside a Charleston, S.C., church, but sales of the divisive emblem are surging nonetheless. Some reports say sales of the rebel flag were up 3,620 percent on Amazon immediately after the website announced it will soon ban such merchandise. And retailers who specialize in flags said the controversy has been good for business.

Former Rep. Ben Jones (D-GA), known for his role as “Cooter” in the “Dukes of Hazzard,” a television series that aired from 1979 to 1985 and featured the Confederate flag prominently, made an appearance on CNN Tuesday. The segment on the renewed debate over the Confederate flag quickly descended into a shouting match.

Isn’t it funny how we are supposed to allow Charlie Hebdo to publish intentionally insulting and offensive cartoons about Christians and Muslims, because that is “free speech” but now they want to ban the Confederate flag because somewhere (we are told) it has hurt someone’s feelings!

 

 

Major University Claims Slavery is the Result of Christianity

And, if you don’t believe that, you’re undoubtedly a racist.
That’s what you’d learn if you were a student at the University of South Florida taking their Culture and Society in Africacourse to learn about slavery.
Here’s the money quote from the textbook used in the course: “Anyone who is familiar with the history of black slavery will note that the strongest bulwark of the slave system was organized Christianity; or in other words, the various denominations of the Christian Church.”

Ronald Reagan ‘Carried His Own Gun’ While President

While doing research for his newest book, The President’s Shadow, author Brad Meltzer came across an interesting fact at Secret Service headquarters: Ronald Reagan “carried his own gun” with him while president.

Meltzer was not able to determine if Reagan carried the gun from day one of his presidency, or if he began carrying after the failed March 30, 1981, attempt on his life.

To Many Iraqis, U.S. Isn’t Really Seeking to Defeat Islamic State

In a tent city under a highway overpass in Baghdad, refugees from Iraq’s Sunni province of Anbar were unanimous about whom to blame for their misery.

“I hold Americans responsible for destroying Anbar,” said former policeman Wassem Khaled, whose home was taken over by Islamic State, or ISIS, after the Iraqi army fled from Anbar’s provincial capital of Ramadi last month.

The US created ISIS, and is using ISIS in Iraq to justify breaking that nation up into three pieces smaller and easier for the US and Israel to bully!

A member of the international coalition to break the siege on Gaza criticised the threat made by Israel that it would prevent the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla III, which is expected to set sail within hours, from reaching Gaza.

Anouar Al-Gharbi, a former foreign affairs adviser to the president of Tunisia, stressed that such threats reflect Israel’s plans to commit a crime by preventing peaceful solidarity activists from doing their humanitarian duty towards the besieged people of Gaza.

Over-the-Top: Sorry, but the Latest ISIS Horror Video Looks Like a BS Hollywood Reality Show

Yes, the war on terror was designed as a nebulous pile of dung that was never meant to ever end. You can’t win a war against an ideal.

And apparently now this war is being fought with show business… because that’s what war is.

Someone somewhere who cannot distinguish between what they see on television and what happens in real life is going to say the following is a heartless, disgusting article to write.

However, we live in a heartless, disgusting world where modern propaganda, false flags, and psyops have gotten to the point that they look like they are being directed by Michael Bay.

As if the videos of some of the so-called ISIS beheadings weren’t questionable enough. As if the news media reporting that ISIS is luring Western women into their dark nightmare world with Nutella and kittens wasn’t ridiculous enough.

Now we are given this.

Just read this Daily Mail headline. Read it twice before continuing and just let it sink in.

The letter was led by Rep. Betty McCollum (MN) and the letter’s other signatories include both co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and members serving on the Armed Services Committee, the Select Committee on Intelligence, the Appropriations Committee, and the Ways and Means Committee.

Six Jews sitting in the White House discussing the Palestinian state

Michael Oren, the former ambassador of Israel to the United States, got some attention in the last day for comments he made about U.S. Jews in positions of power. He noted the enormous influence of Jews over policymaking — Barack Obama or Joe Biden was often the only non-Jew in the room when a Palestinian state was being discussed at the White House, he said– but the American Jews were not able to fully understand Israel, in part because they are assimilating or intermarried. He called on American Jews to exhibit a greater sense of shared “peoplehood” and obligation to Israel.

On May 30, 2015, my wife, Susan, and I joined a small delegation of concerned citizens to visit Russia, a nation under Western media and political assault, and economic sanctions.

Organized by Sharon Tennison, founder of “Center for Citizens Initiatives” (http://ccisf.org/), this independent, one-of-a-kind sojourn was to extend “grassroots goodwill” by meeting directly with the Russian people. Our goal was to learn truths and perspectives first-hand, rather than rely on a special-interests’ controlled mass media, which increasingly and unfairly demonizes the “land of white nights” and their leader, President Vladimir Putin.

If You Can’t Beat ’Em: France, Up In Arms Over NSA Spying, Passes New Surveillance Law

Top-secret documents provided by WikiLeaks to two media outlets, Mediapart and Libération, showed that the NSA had access to confidential conversations of France’s highest ranking officials, including the country’s current president, François Hollande; the prime minister in 2012, Jean-Marc Ayrault; and former presidents Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac.

Yet also today, the lower house of France’s legislature, the National Assembly, passed a sweeping surveillance law. The law provides a new framework for the country’s intelligence agencies to expand their surveillance activities. Opponents of the law were quick to mock the government for vigorously protesting being surveilled by one of the country’s closest allies while passing a law that gives its own intelligence services vast powers with what its opponents regard as little oversight.

 

 

Five Things That Won’t Work in Iraq: When at First You Don’t Succeed, Fail, Fail Again

In one form or another, the US has been at war with Iraq since 1990, including a sort-of invasion in 1991 and a full-scale one in 2003. During that quarter-century, Washington imposed several changes of government, spent trillions of dollars, and was involved in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. None of those efforts were a success by any conceivable definition of the term Washington has been capable of offering.

Ebola cases reported in Guinea as people travel, worries increase with election campaigns

Despite hopes that the deadly Ebola outbreak could soon be contained in West Africa, it shows no signs of abating in Guinea and may be flaring up once more in Sierra Leone as people are flouting rules limiting travel meant to stop it.

The election in Guinea in October adds a new layer of worry for Guineans and health workers, with some residents saying that campaign events, in which people crowd together, shouldn’t be held yet.

The deadly virus, which has killed over 11,100 people mostly in West Africa in its worst outbreak ever, has been stamped out in neighboring Liberia, but is hanging on stubbornly in Guinea, where the Ebola outbreak was first reported in March 2014. Impending presidential elections could make it even worse.

 

 

Market Update: Is The Comex End-Game In Sight?

Every gold and silver – especially silver – analyst on the internet discusses the state of condition of the Comex using these reports as if they are bona fide.

Given the implications of the above legal disclaimer, this is quite disconcerting. Even gold/silver analysts who are critical of the rampant illegal manipulation of the gold and silver markets on the Comex take the data as reported as being legitimate.

CLEARLY, that disclaimer tells us not to take the Comex data reports seriously. In fact, it suggests the distinct possibility that the reports might not be accurate or complete. Why? Because the reports largely come from the three primary market making banks on the Comex: JP Morgan, Scotia and HSBC.

 

 

$200 Million Went to House Members to Pass Fast Track – Here’s Who Took the Cash

TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.

Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.

Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a “hero” in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.

 

 

Rothbard Has The Last Word On The Confederate “False Flag” Issue

For in this War Between the States, the South may have fought for its sacred honor, but the Northern war was the very opposite of honorable. We remember the care with which the civilized nations had developed classical international law. Above all, civilians must not be targeted; wars must be limited. But the North insisted on creating a conscript army, a nation in arms, and broke the 19th-century rules of war by specifically plundering and slaughtering civilians, by destroying civilian life and institutions so as to reduce the South to submission. Sherman’s infamous March through Georgia was one of the great war crimes, and crimes against humanity, of the past century-and-a-half. Because by targeting and butchering civilians, Lincoln and Grant and Sherman paved the way for all the genocidal honors of the monstrous 20th century.

Tax Analysts Sues IRS Over Executive Bonus Awards Records

Tax Analysts filed suit against the IRS on June 23, asking the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to compel the agency to release records of bonus awards it paid to high-level executives since 2010.

Tax Analysts originally requested the bonus awards records in early February through a Freedom of Information Act filing, but the IRS has not said when or whether it would comply with the request.

“It’s déjà vu all over again,” said Tax Analysts President and Publisher Christopher Bergin. “We’ve been at this game a long time. They’ve delayed and delayed and delayed and delayed, and they will continue to delay. And we think this is important information to keep them transparent and to keep them accountable.

French spies secretly organized and funded the Libyan rebels who defeated Moammar Gadhafi, according to confidential emails to Hillary Clinton that were made public on June 22. According to one entry from March 22, 2011, “officers” with the General Directorate for External Security — the French intelligence service — “began a series of secret meetings” with Jalil and Gen. Abdul Fatah Younis in Benghazi in late February and gave them “money and guidance” to set up the council, whose formation was announced Feb. 27. The officers, “speaking under orders from [Sarkozy] promised that as soon as the [council] was organized France would recognize [it] as the new government of Libya.”

In the other six it couldn’t find evidence of a military target, raising the suspicion that the building was a purely civilian facility, suggesting that the attack violated international law. Since Israel didn’t cooperate with the investigators, and didn’t allow them entry to Israel or Gaza, the report urges Israel to answer the question of what it was aiming at in each case.

Grocery Lobby Sends B.S. Letter to Vermont Governor Whining GMO Labels Will Cost $10M a Day

Apparently we can have labels on our food. In fact, we already do. A great variety of them, in fact.

Apparently those labels can have lots and lots of words on them. Words like “quality” and “all natural” which don’t really mean anything in a legal sense as defined by the Food and Drug Administration. Apparently those words can be comprised of the 26 letters of our standard English alphabet. Apparently those letters can include “G,” “M,” and even “O”.

However, according to the giant lobbying group Grocery Manufacturer Association, for some reason it’ll cost a whopping $10 million dollars a day in fines if those letters are put together on a label in that order to alert customers to the fact that they might be buying and eating a genetically modified organism.

They’ve even managed to achieve some of the more traditional staples of a government, such as taxing, looting, conquering, and wholesale murder.

IRS employees can use ‘password’ as a password? No wonder we get hacked

Instead of addressing their own problems and writing a bill that would force the government to upgrade all its legacy systems, implement stronger encryption across federal agencies and implement basic cybersecurity best practices immediately, members of both parties have been pushing dangerous “info-sharing” legislation that will end with much more of citizens’ private data in the hands of the government. And the FBI wants tech companies to install “backdoors” that would give the government access to all encrypted communications – thereby leaving everyone more vulnerable to hackers, not less. Two “solutions” that won’t fix any of the glaring problems staring them in the face, and which may make things a lot worse for ordinary people.

Why should anyone trust what the government says on cybersecurity when they can’t secure the systems they have full control over?

Riyadh insists weapons donation on track

A $3 billion grant to the Lebanese Army for the purchase of French weaponry is still in place, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said Wednesday, days after Lebanese media reports suggested the deal had been frozen. “The Saudi-French agreement to provide the Lebanese Army with weapons is still in place,” Adel al-Jubeir said at a joint news conference with French counterpart Laurent Fabius. The deal was announced in December 2013 by late Saudi King Abdullah and former Lebanese President Michel Sleiman. The first shipment, comprising 48 MILAN anti-tank missiles, vehicles, helicopters and truck-mounted cannon, arrived in Beirut in April. Last week, a report in a local newspaper said that the grant had been suspended and that the MILAN anti-tank missiles were “outdated.” It also claimed that humidity had affected some of the rockets prior to delivery, rendering them inoperable. The Lebanese Army has responded by stating that the rockets are fully operational.

While Russia has been busy developing the BRICS bank with other rising powers – a serious financial challenger to IMF and World Bank hegemony – the West has been busy fomenting chaos in both Syria and Ukraine.

Will the media push us into World War Three? Let’s hope not…

 

 

New Credit Card Rules for Businesses

If you run a small business, you had better be ready for the new rules for credit card transactions. They begin on October 1.

I also suspect that your gov via the NSA will ‘set-up’ small companies and individuals they do not want around any more. If you own a small business and accept plastic money BE VERY CAREFUL.

 

 

Judge orders return of $167,000 seized by Nevada troopers

Citing a lack of candor by the government in its court papers, a federal judge has ordered the return of $167,000 seized from a Hawaiian man’s motor home during a traffic stop near Elko.

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers stopped Straughn Gorman twice within 50 minutes in January 2013 as he was driving the motor home west on Interstate 80 between Wells and Elko, according to court documents.

The troopers said they stopped Gorman for driving too slow in the fast lane, but after Gorman refused to let them search the motor home he was allowed to go on his way without a citation for anything.

The troopers stopped him again after arranging for a drug-sniffing dog to be present, and said the dog alerted them to something suspicious in the motor home, documents show. Their search turned up no drugs but troopers found $167,000 hidden in various places.

Ukraine opposition wants Hague tribunal for those guilty of blockade in east

“We have no choice — either Ukraine puts an end to war or war will put an end to Ukraine,” the Opposition Bloc said in a statement.

“Leaders of ‘the war coalition’ will be held accountable — to the extent of facing trial at the Hague tribunal — for sustaining the blockade of the Donbas region and stalling on the Minsk deal, which brings Ukraine new human losses every day,” the statement said.

Greek Democracy Is Failing — Paul Craig Roberts

The Greek debt is unpayable. It is simply too large to be repaid. The austerity that the EU and IMF have imposed on Greece has worsened the problem by driving down the Greek economy, thus making the burden of the debt even heavier. Despite the obvious fact that the EU’s austerity policy is a failure and cannot succeed, the Greek “debt crisis” drama continues.

BRICS: Union of Reformers and National Interests

Experts are divided as to whether or not the BRICS countries have common interests. But most agree that the member nations view the existing model of the global financial and economic architecture as being inequitable. The main unifying goal of the BRICS organization is to bring about reform of the international financial system so that it is more in its favour. There are different views about what the BRICS members are looking to gain from developing cooperation within the organization:
1) To destroy the dominance of the United States and its allies in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over the global financial system (the political version):
The idea of challenging the hegemony of the United States was originally attributed to Russia. Moscow became the catalyst for the formation of the BRIC community towards the end of the 2000s. But now it is China that is leading the way. Beijing’s efforts to reform the IMF are complimented by attempts to internationalise the yuan…

NBC: “White Americans Are Biggest Terror Threat in U.S.”

NBC News is reporting that white people are the “biggest terror threat in the U.S.” citing a study. Oddly, despite the headline, “White Americans Are Biggest Terror Threat in U.S.: Study,” in the text of their quick article, NBC, does not actually say that white people are the biggest terror threat.

Instead, NBC’s article reads, “The New America Foundation found that twice as many people have died in attacks by right-wing groups in America than by Muslim extremists since 9/11.”

According to the study, 26 people have died from “Deadly Jihadist Attacks” in the United States since September 11, while 48 have died from “Deadly Right Wing Attacks.”

Besides the obvious problems with NBC’s clickbait headline, there other tremendous problems with the “study.” First, it specifically excludes September 11, 2001. If it was included, it would show that Islamic extremists have killed 62 times as many people as “right-winged groups.”

 

Foreign investment in Israel cut by half in 2014

“We believe that what led to the drop in investment in Israel are Operation Protective Edge and the boycotts Israel is facing,” Dr.
Roni Manos of the College of Management and one of the authors of the report’s summary told Ynet. According to her, these are only conjectures that can explain the sharp decline, but there is another reason. “In the past there were large transactions such as Waze and ISCAR Metalworking which boosted investment, but over the past year there were not enough such deals.”

These 7 fast food restaurants are getting rid of artificial ingredients

On Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that Papa John’s is cutting artificial ingredients and other additives from the menu.

The company plans to eliminate 14 ingredients such as corn syrup, preservatives and artificial colors by the end of 2016, an effort that will cost about $100 million a year.

In a world where a food blogger can unleash a health-conscious army on any restaurant chain using an artificial ingredient with a complicated name, more and more companies are trying to simplify their ingredients list.

 

 

Processed Food Losing Market Share to Fresh and Organic Alternatives

Major packaged-food companies lost $4 billion in market share alone last year, as shoppers swerved to fresh and organic alternatives. Can the supermarket giants win you back?

Try this simple test. Say the following out loud: Artificial colors and flavors. Pesticides. Preservatives. High-fructose corn syrup. Growth hormones. Antibiotics. Gluten. Genetically modified organisms.

If any one of these terms raised a hair on the back of your neck, left a sour taste in your mouth, or made your lips purse with disdain, you are part of Big Food’s multibillion-dollar problem. In fact, you may even belong to a growing consumer class that has some of the world’s biggest and best-known companies scrambling to change their businesses.

 

 

A New Problem For Greece Emerges: How To Do the Russian “Unpivot” After Capitulating To The Troika

It goes without saying that if Greece is scrambling to go back into the Troika’s good graces, Belgium will make it very clear that any overtures to Putin are to be “cease and deceased” (sic) immediately. Which opens a can of worms for the Marxists in government: how to slam shut the door to their ideological Plan B, when everyone knows the Grexit fiasco will repeat again in a few months, and Greece will again be knocking on the Kremlin’s door.

 

 

Cookies lady Nuland starts jolly good revolution in Armenia

Obviously, there is a fifth column working in the Armenian government. The active work was launched soon after cookies lady Victoria Nuland paid a visit to Yerevan. Paul Craig Roberts, formerly an official with the Reagan administration, said in an interview with the Yerevan Geopolitical Club public organization that Nuland had visited Armenia to organize a coup there. According to Roberts, Armenia would be the scene of a coup similar to the one that happened in Ukraine in 2014. The goal of the funding of Armenian NGOs is to take people to the streets and bribe politicians. Armenia would be destroyed to become a vassal state. Afterwards, there will be Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. In all of these post-Soviet countries, Washington will build its army bases, Paul Craig Roberts said.

A Bloomberg View column, citing two unidentified American administration officials, claimed Hashd al-Shaabi forces groups are sharing use of a military base with US troops.

The news sources can’t report “second hand information.” I don’t know how someone getting out of jail and reporting a story to me isn’t just as viable as reporting on videos nobody has seen? He stated he didn’t see the videos but made extended synopsis on what was on them. I guess its okay to use selective second hand information.

Press Digest: West ready for long haul in Russia standoff – Pentagon chief

The West is preparing for a long confrontation with Russia even after Russian President Vladimir Putin leaves the presidency, writes website Gazeta.ru.
This was announced by U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter during his tour of Europe, whose main purpose is to develop a common strategy of cooperation between NATO member states in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine. The Pentagon chief arrived in Berlin for talks with the German defense minister on June 21 and will subsequently visit Estonia before ending his trip with a meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels.
Carter’s remarks confirm that the bloc’s policy toward Russia has not changed and will not change in the near future, said deputy director of the Institute for U.S. and Canadian Studies, Viktor Kremenyuk.

With this, the AMA will have the right to do everything in their power to silence integrative medical practitioners against voicing their opinions in the media. While trying to reduce the accumulation of misinformation in the public is noble, it is widely misguided, particularly when it groups all natural health practitioners into the single “quack” category. The terms “quack” and “pseudoscience” are terms that the AMA uses to describe any medical professional who diverts from their own view of the medical paradigm in an attempt to reduce their credibility and silence their voice.

PUTIN: In Ukraine there are no more gas on credit.

Google Translate: The Russian president said that at current oil prices dropping, the price of Russian gas for Ukraine should be at the level of countries such as Poland.
The supply of gas through Turkey does not imply delivery of gas to the end user, such as the planned “South Stream”, but to the same extent, and that the principle of “take or pay”

Ukraine “to stifle” the debt for Russian gas

The translation is a bit difficult, but it sounds like Russia is telling Kiev they have to pay current market value for gas, no discounts, and they have to pay as they go.

She wrote, “just got jumped by 3 African Americans ourside [sic] of the as [sic] Walmart.” But the photo clearly shows the “bruises” were just makeup.

Syrian leader can stop Islamic State terrorist group — Russian security official

The Persian Gulf countries should pray for Syrian President Bashar Assad who can stop the Islamic State militant group, deputy Russian Security Council chief Yevgeny Lukyanov said on Wednesday.
“I believe that countries of this region – Saudi Arabia, Persian Gulf states and may be others should pray for Bashar Assad. This is the last frontier of their security. If the Assad regime falls, then the IS next goal will be Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf states,” Lukyanov said.
Some 5,000 Saudi nationals are part of the IS, he said, adding: “When the active phase of confrontation ends there, where will they go? They will come back [home]. What can they do? They can only kill people,” he said.

The city of Mosul was seized by Islamists on June 10 last year. According to Iraqi media, one of the major problems when freeing the city will be bombs and mines set by militants on its territory.

“Medicines and other medical means will be loaded on the vehicles that will be part of another humanitarian convoy of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry being formed in the Donskoi rescue center,” the spokesman said.
Truck convoys formed by Russia’s Emergencies Ministry have delivered a total of over 38,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the Donbas region since mid-August 2014.

Counter-sanctions should take into account Hungary, Greece, Cyprus stances — lawmaker

Working out retaliatory sanctions against the European Union, Russia should take into account the stances of the countries with which it has good economic and political relations, such as Hungary, Greece and Cyprus, speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko told reporters on Wednesday, answering a TASS question.
The Federation Council head at the same time spoke in favour of a differentiated approach to European states. “I believe, however, that working out the counter-sanctions policy, we must take into account the positions of a number of countries, such as Hungary, Greece, Cyprus, with which we have developed not only good economic and trade relations, but also political relations, which have actively opposed the policy of sanctions,” said the speaker, adding that “such states should be supported.”

Russian President Putin extends embargo on import of number of foreign goods

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to extend the embargo on the import of a number of foreign goods for one more year starting today, June 24, 2015.
Russia’s sanctions list could include flowers, pastry items and canned fish.
Russia’s Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev has called for considering a possibility of limiting the import of flowers to Russia as part of extending the country’s counter-sanctions. Russia should also ban the import of pastry items as the country “has powerful confectionery industry,” the minister said.
Speaking on canned fish, he said: “Over the past years, our fish industry, processing and harvest has been developing rather well.” http://tass.ru/en/russia/803550

Senator Slams Obamatrade: “They Won The Vote, But Lost The Trust Of The American People”

Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.

I’ll go Senator Sessions one further: no thinking American trusts Congress or the Executive branch at all, and doesn’t believe one word they say.

This legislation will be terrific for the large corporations, and generally lousy for We the people, but that has become the norm in this country by now.

Politicians do precisely what their corporate handlers tell them, and get handsomely compensated for doing so.

Look for a surge in revoked citizenship, and a brain drain out of this country, the like of which we have never witnessed before.

 

 

The Merging of Government and Wall Street Into One Criminal Entity: The Rising Tide of State Fascism in the US and Canada

In the dozen plus years since 9/11, the US government has rapidly moved from democracy to fascism. When government acts on behalf of a corporate oligarchy as declared by the Princeton-Northwestern study last month, state fascism is the result. And First Amendment rights in America have been obliterated in this morphing process.

Truth is the first casualty of war; and there has been an ongoing war against the American people, courtesy of their government, for quite some time now.

This is not going to be won by violence, but by a call to keyboards, and sharing what you know with whom you know.

Don’t overload people with info; just a bit at a time.

And I am willing to almost bet real money on the following; you may well hear the words, or words like them, of “WOW, I thought I was the only person who thought that way about this issue!!”

 

 

British Actors, Film Directors and Writers Demand Immediate Sanctions against Israel

Actors, authors, academics and architects have today called on the UK government to push for immediate sanctions on Israel until it abides by international law and ends its occupation of Palestinian land.

They join other big names from the world of film and rock music, as well as 20,000 members of the public, who have signed a petition which will be delivered at the Houses of Parliament today.

The film directors, Ken Loach and Peter Kosminsky, actors Maxine Peake, Samuel West and Miriam Margolyes, musician Brian Eno, poet Benjamin Zephaniah and the writers and academics, Tariq Ali and Karma Nabulsi, are among those* who have put their name to the call.

Will Alsop OBE, the RIBA award winning architect, another signatory, said: “‘I have signed the petition as I object to the people in the Gaza Strip being forced to live in a prison camp.”

Please support these people in their professional endeavors; there will be those who will try to prevent them from ever doing another play, another film, or another building design.

It is up to all of us who value the notion of peace, both in the Middle East, and the World, to lift these people up as much as possible.

 

 

Today I Saw a Weeping Palestinian Man Holding a Plastic Bag of Meat: It Was His Son

I sense I’m breaking an unspoken rule with this letter, but I can’t keep quiet any more.

Today I saw a picture of a weeping Palestinian man holding a plastic carrier bag of meat. It was his son. He’d been shredded (the hospital’s word) by an Israeli missile attack – apparently using their fab new weapon, flechette bombs. You probably know what those are – hundreds of small steel darts packed around explosive which tear the flesh off humans. The boy was Mohammed Khalaf al-Nawasra. He was 4 years old.

I suddenly found myself thinking that it could have been one of my kids in that bag, and that thought upset me more than anything has for a long time.

Then I read that the UN had said that Israel might be guilty of war crimes in Gaza, and they wanted to launch a commission into that. America won’t sign up to it.

What is going on in America?

Here’s who is most exposed to a Greek default

As the chart above from Copenhagen-based Danske Bank shows, as of March Greece’s outstanding debt stood at 312.7 billion euros ($349.6 billion). Of that, €231.2 billion is in the form of loans, with €205 billion belonging to the institutions, or the “official” sector (as opposed to the private sector). The institutions include the International Monetary Fund, the eurozone’s European Financial Stability Facility and bilateral loans from eurozone countries.

The fact that so much of Greece’s debt is seen in the hands of official creditors is one reason analysts say investors have remained relatively sanguine throughout the latest chapter of the drama.

“The private sector “has almost no direct exposure to Greece anymore,” wrote strategists at J.P. Morgan Cazenove, in a Monday note urging clients to get back into German stocks.

 

 

America’s Slave Empire

Three prisoners—Melvin Ray, James Pleasant and Robert Earl Council—who led work stoppages in Alabama prisons in January 2014 as part of the Free Alabama Movement have spent the last 18 months in solitary confinement. Authorities, unnerved by the protests that engulfed three prisons in the state, as well as by videos and pictures of abusive conditions smuggled out by the movement, say the men will remain in solitary confinement indefinitely.

The prison strike leaders are denied televisions and reading material. They spend at least three days a week, sometimes longer, in their tiny isolation cells. They eat their meals while seated on steel toilets. They are allowed to shower only once every two days despite temperatures that routinely rise above 90 degrees.

This is great for the companies making zigableems of money off this forced slave labor, or the private prison corporations, but lousy for the people inside the system.

It is particularly galling to me to understand that there are some countries – notably, Sweden – which are CLOSING their prisons because of the broad embrace of rehabilitation and community based efforts to insure that recidivism doesn’t happen.

Folks, I am NOT soft on crime; I am just hard on the stupidity which prevents a more enlightened approach to a penal system in this country, which has, absolutely and completely, been engineered to fail.

 

 

Homegrown Radicals More Deadly Than Jihadis in U.S.

In the 14 years since Al Qaeda carried out attacks on New York and the Pentagon, extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the United States, explaining their motives in online manifestoes or social media rants.

But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise. Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.

Greek Film Shows Way Out of Debt Bind

“Debtocracy” introduces the concept of “odious debt” and points to strong precedents for repudiating debt that has been incurred fraudulently.

“At first we thought this predatory IMF behavior was reserved for the Third World, but now it’s clear Europe and America are also in their cross-hairs.”

In April 2015, a Greek parliamentary committee endorsed this concept. Clearly any debt deal reached this week will only pass the Greek parliament by virtue of the votes of the opposition parties. Greece’s predicament exemplifies what may happen to any country that has forfeited its power to create credit, i.e. the medium of exchange (currency.) That’s us all.

 

 

Why Jeb Bush Wants the United States to Be More Like Estonia

On Monday, Jeb Bush posted a column on Medium touting the need for ramped-up cybersecurity efforts. “Given the reliance of the United States government and the private sector on the internet, it is disturbing we remain vulnerable to its disruption and misuse,” he wrote.

The piece was mostly devoid of specific ways to fix those vulnerabilities, but what Bush did propose raises some privacy concerns. The former Florida governor cited Estonia, a tiny Baltic nation that’s a world leader in cybersecurity efforts, as a model to emulate. What he didn’t say was that Estonia’s model is predicated on pervasive government involvement in policing the country’s internet infrastructure, with the central government establishing a secure online national ID system for citizens. This is a digital version of what US conservatives have long opposed: a national identity card.

More surveillance will not make US citizens any more safe.

What the US government can do to make us more safe, it pathologically will not do, and that is to stop mucking about in other people’s countries to harvest resources to which it has absolutely no moral right.

 

 

Hillary Clinton is a hypocritical cheapskate, says campaign worker

A former campaign worker of self-proclaimed “champion” of the American people, Hillary Clinton, accused the Democrat’s heir apparent to the White House on Wednesday of hypocrisy on a grand scale for not paying her interns and fellows who slave for her election as president while she criticizes corporate executives for being selfish cheapskates. Avoiding international affairs issues — in order to avoid having to explain Benghazi, the Russian reset, her connections with the Muslim Brotherhood — Mrs. Clinton has zeroed in on what a majority of Americans care about: increased wages and benefits.

NATO Poised to Announce Return to Iraq for ‘Training Mission’

Hope springs eternal for NATO officials confident of their ability to create strong militaries in the Western style across the world with training missions, and this week’s NATO summit is expected to unveil their next training target as Iraq.

NATO has plenty of experience training Iraq’s military to a point they are contented with, having left in 2011 after years of training top Iraqi officers, only to watch that Iraqi military collapse in the face of ISIS opposition, with the very same top officers accused of abandoning their posts more or less immediately.

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

Continuing to do something in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the most classical definitions of insanity.

France’s Hollande Calls Defense Cabinet Meeting After NSA Spying Claims

French President François Hollande plans to convene top defense advisers on Wednesday after Wikileaks published documents that purportedly show that the U.S. spied on him and his two predecessors.

The six documents, also published late Tuesday by two French publications, describe purported U.S. surveillance of internal deliberations and conversations of Mr. Hollande and former French presidents Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac.

The White House late Tuesday said that it is not now spying on Mr. Hollande and that it would not undertake such surveillance against him in the future. The statement did not deny that spying had taken place in the past.

This is going to be another sucker punch to American software and computer companies, because foreign countries’ leadership (and their people) can no longer trust that hardware or software from American companies is not spying on them.

Smooth move, US government, way to go!!

And to anyone using the net; never say anything on the net you wouldn’t want SCREAMED TO THE WORLD, INSTANTLY. There is no privacy on the net, so have the horse sense keep everything vanilla.

We know the US government is surveilling its people all the time, so just be careful out there.

ALBUQUERQUE COPS WHO SHOT MENTALLY ILL HOMELESS MAN NOW FACE LESS SEVERE CHARGES

Prosecutors initially sought to charge two Albuquerque cops who shot and killed a homeless man camping in the New Mexico wilderness in March 2014 with first-degree murder, but the officers are now expected to face lesser charges.

The killing of James Boyd, a schizophrenic 38-year-old, by police officers Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez after an hours-long standoff was captured in a graphic video recorded by a camera on one of the officers’ helmets. The footage went viral, prompting outrage and turmoil across New Mexico that culminated with clashes between protesters and riot police with tear gas.

Please, do not visit New Mexico, or pass through it by car, any time soon; this could be very hazardous to your health, even if you have done absolutely nothing wrong.

People of that state, I would suggest that you move out of that state, and soon.

The formerly characterized “Land of Enchantment” has become the “Land of Entrapment”; particularly if you are homeless and mentally ill, and committed the “crime” of camping illegally in the wilderness, where you are working very hard not to bother anyone.

 

 

DEFENSE DEPT. EMPLOYEES USED GOVERNMENT CHARGE CARDS AT “ADULT ENTERTAINMENT ESTABLISHMENTS” 900 TIMES IN ONE YEAR

An investigation into the use of government-issued credit cards showed that some Pentagon employees may be using them to stuff strippers’ G-strings with taxpayer dollars.

A report (pdf) from the Department of Defense’s inspector general says Pentagon workers used their government-issued credit cards 900 times during the 12-month period from July 2013 through June 2014 at “adult entertainment” businesses. Those transactions totaled $96,576. The report also revealed that defense cardholders made 4,437 transactions totaling $952,258 at casinos during that period.

Police: ‘Don’t ask Siri about 9/11’

Everybody loves a good Siri Easter egg, but they aren’t always “ha-ha” funny.

The city of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada, has apparently seen some serious fallout in the wake of the latest viral “Ask Siri about … ” trend.

If you say “Okay, Google” to Siri, or ask it what the fox says, you’re going to get something funny — or at least funny-ish — in return. Apple’s digital assistant comes preprogrammed with a bunch of responses both silly and earnest. But if you ask Siri about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, as recent posts on social media have suggested, the only thing that happens is that your phone will call 911 emergency services. And the CBC reports that this has caused a spate of unwanted hangup calls in Regina that tie up police resources.

That’s right; forget about all the supposed drama surrounding Greek debt obligations. Will they find a way to pay creditors? Will they default? Will they make a deal with Russia and the BRICS? Will there be last-minute concessions to save the system? It doesn’t matter. It’s all a soap opera, an elaborate Kabuki theater run by international financiers and globalists…

Samsung’s ‘see-through’ trucks aim to reduce risk of passing on highway

Using monitors mounted on the back of a truck or other large vehicle and connected wirelessly to a camera in front, Samsung’s Safety Truck technology shows drivers what’s ahead of the 18-wheeled obstruction they’re driving behind — day or night.

How Much Does Israel Cost The Average American?

While so many Americans are subsisting on food stamps, losing their homes, and accumulating credit card debt they will never be able to pay off, the US is giving Israel $3 billion in direct foreign aid every year and, according to Congressman James Traficant, another $12-17 billion in indirect aid such as valuable military equipment deemed “scrapped,” loan guarantees, and preferential contracts. Israel is an affluent country with more than 10,000 millionaires and, according to the International Monetary Fund, was one of the few economies that weathered the 2008 financial storm nearly unscathed.

Facebook becomes Godzilla news outlet for disinformation

“Bottom line, every large mainstream news source is in the business of disinformation. That’s the heavy freight they transport, every day. Stories with no context. Outright lies.

Disguised partisan opinions. Utter reliance on ‘experts’ as sources, who deliver official propaganda as if it were fact. They manufacture reality for governments, corporations, and other controllers of society. And yet… many of these outlets are drowning in red ink. They’re going broke. The ‘greatest news outlet in the world’, the New York Times, keeps refinancing its debt to stay afloat. The powers-that-be must rescue mainstream media, in order to keep broadcasting their false pictures of reality. Who will step up to the plate? Perhaps some social-media Godzilla with CIA connections…”

In the wake of the June 1967 war, the Israeli author Amos Oz, then a reserve soldier in the Israeli army, together with a friend collated interviews with Israeli soldiers who participated in the war and asked them about the emotions the fighting triggered in them. The interviews were published as a book titled Conversations with Soldiers, more popularly referred at the time by my generation as the ”shooting and crying” book.

The military censor (a function that still exists today, held recently by the present minister of culture, Miri Regev), erased 70 percent of the evidence since he claimed it would have harmed Israel’s international image.

However, the proposed changes to EU-wide law would require snappers to obtain permission from the copyright holder, even if the landmark, building or work of art is in the background of a picture.

A new view of its intriguing bright spots, located in a crater 90km across, shows even more small spots in the crater than were previously visible, the US space agency said.

At least eight spots can be seen next to the largest bright area, which scientists think is approximately nine kilometres wide.

France summons US envoy over ‘Wikileaks’ spying revelations

The revelations were first reported by French daily Liberation and on news website Mediapart, which said the NSA spied on presidents Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande during the period of at least 2006 until May 2012.

According to the documents, Mr Sarkozy considered restarting Israeli-Palestinian peace talks without US involvement and Mr Hollande feared a Greek euro zone exit back in 2012.

Mr Le Foll said Paris had not decided whether to launch legal proceedings as Germany had done but, amid calls from some quarters for retaliation, played down diplomatic consequences.

“In the face of threats that we face and given the historic ties linking us, we have to keep a perspective,“ he said. “We‘re not going to break diplomatic ties.“

Reclaim the MONEY POWER with Publicly-Owned Banks

The thesis [of the book “Web of Debt” by Ellen Brown] is that the power to create money has been usurped by a private international banking cartel, which issues our money as debt and lends it back to us at interest. The cartel makes it appear that governments are creating our money, and governments get blamed when things go wrong; but they are actually just pawns of the cartel. We the people can get back our government and our republic only by reclaiming the power to create our own money. We can use the same credit system that private banks use, but administered as a public utility, monitored and overseen by public servants on the model of libraries and courts. To be a sustainable system, profits need to be returned to the community rather than siphoned off into private coffers. –Ellen Brown…interview with Daily Bell

“I have faith in the sort of government “of the people, by the people, for the people” described by Abraham Lincoln; but we don’t have that now. What we have is government controlled by a few giant corporations, and they got their power by acquiring the power to create the national money supply. “Allow me to issue and control a nation’s currency,” Amschel Mayer Rothschild allegedly said in the 18th century, “and I care not who makes its laws.” That statement may be apocryphal, but that is how they did it, and that is the power we have to get back if we want a just and trustworthy government that represents people rather than wealthy corporations. –Ellen Brown…interview with Daily Bell

 

 

China Syndrome – or why the PCR won’t get sucked into a pointless war with the United States

China’s meteoric rise has Washington worried, not because China is a threat to its neighbors or to US national security, but because China’s influence is expanding across the region. It’s creating the institutions it needs to finance its own development (AIIB and New BRICS Bank), it’s building the infrastructure needed to connect the continents with state-of-the-art high-speed rail (New Silk Road), and its attracting allies and trading partners who want to participate in its plan for growth and prosperity. This is why Washington is worried; it’s because China has transformed itself into an economic powerhouse that doesn’t conform to the neoliberal model of punitive austerity, pernicious privatization, and madcap asset inflation.

(Satire): President Obama announced at a White House press conference today that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade treaty details must remain secret because the now 14-year-old US War on Terror requires secrecy from terrorist enemies, secrecy is the founding principle of American freedom, and that secrecy equals safety. Press conference excerpts:

President Obama: As you know, secrecy is a foundational principle of American freedom. From the Founding Father’s secret “Committees of Correspondence,” to Boston’s Old North Church spy signal of “one if by land, two if by sea,” to Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay using the secret name, “Publius,” as the secret name to publish The Federalist Papers to win support for our Constitution, American patriots have used secrecy to protect our great nation. Secrecy equals freedom.

Major banks plead guilty to felony charges of currency fraud, but are allowed to continue scam after paying fine – and nobody’s in jail!

Several top kingpins behind the global financial collapse of 2008 have reportedly agreed to plead guilty for their sinister crimes, but under one major condition: that they won’t actually be held legally culpable. Five of the world’s largest banks — Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays PLC, the Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS — have all confessed to deliberately manipulating the global foreign exchange markets for illicit gain, but all of them are getting off the hook with petty fines rather than jail time and tangible operations penalties.

 

 

IAF strikes Gaza rocket launcher after projectile attack on southern Israel

The military placed the onus on Gaza’s ruling Hamas faction to take responsibility for projectile fire emanating from the coastal Palestinian enclave.

“Hamas is the address and it bears responsibility,” the IDF added.

Gazan terrorists fired a single rocket at southern Israel earlier on Tuesday night, setting off air raid sirens in the regions of Yad Mordechai, Karmiya, Zikim, and Nativ Ha’asara.

The IDF said the rocket fell in an open area in the Yad Mordechai region. No injuries or damage were reported.

IDF sources said they detected one rocket launch from Gaza and local residents reported hearing a blast.

Sooooo, Iron Dome doesn’t work, does it?

Even as the governments of the EU are moving to buck US pressures and ease the sanctions, the Obama Administration seems intent on marching in the direction of a nuclear confrontation with Russia. As the ancient Greek expression puts it, “Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad…” The following recent developments fit that pattern quite nicely, thank you.

Rejection of Western-Style Democracy Has Been Key to Russia’s Success

Is democracy a dead cat the West wants to sell for good money? According to one of the greatest strategists of the 20th century, that would be more or less correct. In the words of Lee Kuan Yew, the late Singapore strongman, “The exuberance of democracy leads to undisciplined and disorderly conditions which are inimical to development.”
The West treats democracy as religion – a form of government so sacred that it will bomb countries into the stone age in order to sow the seeds of democracy in those places. But in Lee’s view, “Democratic procedures have no intrinsic value. What matters is good government.”

“President Obama was dead wrong when he immediately took advantage of the tragic South Carolina massacre to promote his anti-gun agenda,” Norris wrote in the piece for WND.

 

 

Russians Pay Less Tax Than You – And Other Surprising (?) Facts

Western sanctions have positive effects on Russian economy — Public Chamber secretary

“Extension of sanctions by our Western partners is only positive for us so far,” he told journalists ahead of the Public Chamber’s plenary session.
“The longer the sanctions stay in place, the better it will be for businesses, especially those operating in the sphere of import substitution,” secretary of the Russian Public Chamber Alexander Brechalov said. “Obviously, the process of import substitution is underway, businessmen have felt chances and possibilities.”
Brechalov stressed that neither sanctions nor Russia’s counter-sanctions had had negative impacts on the social sphere. “Social liabilities have been fulfilled completely, not a single kopeck has been sequestrated,” he said.

Kiev forces violate ceasefire over 30 times on border with Donetsk republic

“The intensity of shellings carried out by the Ukrainian side over the past 24 hours reached 31 violations of the ceasefire regime,” a ministry official was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
The settlements of Spartak, Yasinovataya, Kalinovka, Dokuchayevsk, Yelenovka and also the Kievsky and Kuybyshevsky districts of Donetsk particularly came under fire, he said.
Two civilians were killed in the shelling of the town of Dokuchayevsk and a neighborhood of Donetsk, the DPR’s defence ministry reported earlier on Tuesday.
The self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) has registered eight ceasefire violations by Ukrainian troops over the past 24 hours, say police sources, adding that three militias have been wounded.
According to police, tank guns fired on three occasions. Ukrainian troops also used cannon gunnery, grenade machine guns and mortars, police said. http://tass.ru/en/world/803133

Anti-Ukrainian moods growing in Ukraine’s southern Odessa — Self Reliance party leader

“Powerful anti-Ukrainian moods that are fuelled from outside against the background of deep poverty and region’s isolation, a very weak presence and influence of the Ukrainian state power in these regions,” Odessa’s Timer online edition quoted Andriy Sadovyi as citing the reasons.
Sadovyi, mayor of the western city of Lviv, also said the Ukrainian authorities were fully unaware of how serious the situation was. In his remarks posted on a webpage after talks with Saakashvili, he urged the new Odessa leadership to take “swift and resolute moves towards integration of the region”.

Fox News co-host misses target in ax throw, hits drummer — VIDEO

A video has never before been so cringeworthy, and we all have Fox News co-host Pete Hegseth to thank for this nerve-wracking clip.

According to the Huffington Post, the video comes from a June 14 broadcast of “Fox & Friends” in an apparent “lumberjack contest.”

Here we see Hegseth attempting to throw an ax at a target. He brings the ax behind his back, swings it over his head, launches it and it clears the top of the target. Not even close.

Unfortunately, the failed throw doesn’t just end there.

The clip then cuts to a drumline playing behind the target area and we see the ax hit one of the U.S Army drummers.

Yemeni Peace Talks Sabotaged by United States Supported Elements in Geneva

After nearly a week of discussions in Geneva, Switzerland the United Nations peace talks to end the fighting in Yemen have adjourned with no resolution to the months-long war.

These talks broke down after the Saudi Arabian and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) backed politician, the ousted and fugitive President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, demanded that he be re-installed as the head-of-state in order for a halt to the bombing of the country which has been taking place daily since March 26.

Anywhere ranging from 2,500-4,000 people has been killed in the bombing and fighting on the ground. Some 500,000 have been reported as dislocated by humanitarian organizations.

Efforts to provide relief assistance by the Islamic Republic of Iran and other popular organizations internationally have been thwarted by the Saudi-GCC alliance backed up by Washington. The Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) are assisting the Riyadh alliance through refueling and the sharing of information.

By the insistence that their puppet dictator Hadi be reinstated, the US government has engineered these talks to fail.

 

 

The 1 Percent’s Vile New War

Rich people rarely tell you how they really feel about poor people. Occasionally, though, you get a glimpse. Earlier this week, the Washington Post published a story about Rancho Santa Fe, a small but extremely wealthy enclave in Southern California. Like the rest of California, the people of Rancho Santa Fe are dealing with a drought.
As you might imagine, that means water is scarce and conservation is critical. For the denizens of Rancho Santa Fe, however, conservation is someone else’s problem, namely poor people.

According to Steve Yuhas, who lives in the area and hosts a conservative talk-radio show, privileged people “should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful.” Oh, the humanity! In case it wasn’t clear, Yuhas added that the right to water ought to scale with income: “No, we’re not all equal when it comes to water.”

 

 

Nun, 85, in nuclear protest set to remain free after sabotage charge dropped

An 85-year-old nun and two fellow Catholic peace activists will probably remain free after government prosecutors told defense attorneys they will not seek to have a sabotage charge reconsidered.

Sister Megan Rice was originally sentenced to three years and Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed were each sentenced to nearly five years for vandalizing the outside of a Tennessee bunker storing bomb-grade uranium.

Last month, a panel of the sixth US circuit court of appeals overturned the most serious conviction against the three. The court upheld a conviction for injuring government property.

I hope that this case – and the acquittal of those charged – will start a national dialogue about what will really create greater safety for the people of this country.

And there is one thing for which I would advocate, very strongly, and that would be the following; that the US government stops mucking about in other people’s countries for resources to which they can claim absolutely no moral right.

If the US government had put a fraction of the investment these wars have cost us into the development of sustainable, affordable energy, we would not be in these horrific, and unwinnable wars in which this country is enmeshed.

But, of course, THAT … would be logical.

 

 

Afghanistan’s security on the brink of collapse

The Taliban attacks on the Afghan parliament and the northern city of Kunduz are a reflection of the fragile security situation prevailing in the country. DW examines.

Screams, smoke and smashed windows – a shocking video of the attack on the Afghan parliament is making rounds on social media. The television footage shows what happened inside the building at the time of the attack on June 22. A huge explosion rocked the parliament complex as Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi was about to read out his welcome address.

The MP initially tried to calm lawmakers, saying “it’s an electrical issue.” Parliamentarians, however, already switched into a panic mode as Ibrahimi was escorted out of the building.

Images like these illustrate the extent of insecurity plaguing the war-torn South Asian nation. In fact, lawmakers had assembled for a general meeting to vote on a new defense minister, a position that has not been filled since President Ashraf Ghani took office over a year ago.

What we are dealing with here is a completely failed US/NATO occupation, nearly 13 years on.

But of course, the US government, in its normally pathological mode, cannot admit defeat, and leave, which the old Soviet Union was forced to do all those many years ago.

It spins consistent failure as “victory”, while our young men and women continue to come home in body bags, or maimed for life.

President Obama could end this in a heartbeat, if he so chose, but unfortunately, we are dealing with a President who cannot admit either failure or responsibility for ANYTHING.

So it looks like whoever the next President of the US will be must be the one to end it – if they have any shred of sense whatsoever.

UN report blasts Gaza war tactics Israel has defended

An inquiry by a commission of the U.N. Human Rights Council into last summer’s Gaza conflict and an Israeli report issued last week on the same topic offer vastly divergent interpretations on the use of overwhelming Israeli firepower against militants from Hamas and other groups in a crowded civilian setting.

The Israeli report absolved the country’s military forces of violations, saying what happened is the consequence of fighting against a group that had taken up positions in crowded urban settings.

The United Nations report, which was issued Monday, asserted, however, that both Israel and Palestinian armed groups may have committed war crimes and that Israeli officials had brought no one to account.

No country on the planet is going to attempt to bring Israel to heel militarily for its wanton disregard for Palestinian life; we are dealing, here, with a viciously apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons.

However, this is why the BDS movement must succeed; this speaks to both the Israeli government, and people, in a language they can readily understand.

 

 

Concerns as Pentagon Chief Broaches Possibility of ‘Three Iraqs, not One’

The Abadi government in Iraq already has enough reasons to be pessimistic about their chances of beating ISIS and reunification of the country afterwards, since they lose seemingly every major battle against ISIS. Analysts are increasingly concerned, however, that pessimistic comments out of the US are going to really weigh on them.

Testifying to the House Armed Services Committee last week, Defense Secretary Ash Carter offered a pretty negative assessment on the Iraqi military. But the real eye-opener for some was the revelation within his comments that the Pentagon is already opening planning for the contingency that Iraq will never be reunified at all.

Though the US is still operating under the assumption that ISIS, as such, will eventually be defeated, they see it entirely possible that the post-ISIS Iraq will mean the Shi’ite-dominated existing government will lose the Sunni Arab west as well as the Kurdish north to two separate independence pushes.

How convenient: this is precisely the outcome for which Israel had been advocating, even before the advent of the US invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Senate Gives Obama Huge Win On Trade

The Senate on Tuesday handed President Barack Obama the biggest legislative victory of his second term, with a dramatic vote clearing the way for major trade agreements with Pacific Rim nations and the European Union.

The 60-37 vote all but ensures the passage of legislation that will allow Obama to “fast-track” his negotiated trade pacts through Congress, preventing filibusters or amendments. Liberals have long assailed Obama’s trade agenda, but Republicans successfully wooed a bloc of Democrats led by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) to secure enough votes to overcome a filibuster.

With the 60-vote threshold cleared, the path is now open for the Senate to take a final vote on the legislation on Wednesday.

Every senator who voted, and votes, affirmatively for these pieces of legislation is a complete, absolute traitor to the American people they allegedly represent.

This is an absolutely, painfully clear demonstration that Congress is, collectively, simply a whore to the corporations which pay them, handsomely, to do their bidding.

While she was walking near campus one fall day, a homeless man approached her, asking for money to buy food because he was hungry. Instead of giving him cash, Ahmad invited the man to lunch. As they ate, he told her his story. He was a soldier recently returned from Iraq and had a bad turn of luck.

Drug Company Chief: Our Drugs Do Not Work on Most Patients

A senior executive with Britain’s biggest drugs company has admitted that most prescription medicines do not work on most people who take them.

Allen Roses, worldwide vice-president of genetics at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), said fewer than half of the patients prescribed some of the most expensive drugs actually derived any benefit from them.

It is an open secret within the drugs industry that most of its products are ineffective in most patients but this is the first time that such a senior drugs boss has gone public. His comments come days after it emerged that the NHS drugs bill has soared by nearly 50 per cent in three years, rising by £2.3bn a year to an annual cost to the taxpayer of £7.2bn. GSK announced last week that it had 20 or more new drugs under development that could each earn the company up to $1bn (£600m) a year.

For that reason, the committee has made the decision to release the latest set of Clinton’s public records unearthed by the committee,” said Gowdy, a former criminal prosecutor.

 

 

The 6 Stupidest Acts Of Journalistic Fraud Ever Attempted

Calling for the death of a random civil servant is bad enough, but this particular protest followed the murder of two police officers in New York City. Clearly, the race war that Fox has spent the past several years warning everyone about was ready to explode:

Except, of course, for the part where that’s not at all what happened. As it turned out, the protesters were actually chanting, “We won’t stop, we can’t stop, ’til killer cops, are in cell blocks.” The news report left out those crucial last four syllables.

This was not an accident. The audio of the video, which was being presented by reporter Melinda Roeder and cameraman Greg McNair, was deliberately altered by looping of the phrase “killer cop” to make the protesters sound like a pack of bloodthirsty psychopaths.

Top al Qaeda leader reported killed in Yemen

Top al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Nasir al-Wuhayshi was killed Friday in a suspected U.S. drone strike in Yemen’s Hadramout region, according to two Yemeni national security officials.

Tweets from known AQAP operatives also spoke of al-Wuhayshi having been martyred, and of AQAP military commander Qasm al-Rimi (also known as Abu Hureira al-Sanaani) having been appointed as al-Wuhayshi’s replacement.

Reader comment: PBS news hour reported this story yesterday. The final word on this story was that the United States said, that he was a person of interest. Judge, jury, and executioner for a PERSON of interest. This kind of policy will kill many innocent people. Terrorism recruitment will flourish under this policy, but that is actually their goal. Continued wars; acquisition of land and resources, and installing military bases to control the regions. They can not steal during times of peace can they? Jeb Bush will continue the need for wars philosophy. “The terrorists want to take what little freedoms we have left”.

 

 

THE UN’s BLURRED VISION

Israel systematically targeted Palestinian residential buildings and infrastructure without any apparent military justification. The horror of what Israel did, detailed in the 183-page report, cannot be adequately summarized here.

In total, 2,251 Palestinians were killed, including 1,462 Palestinian civilians, among them 551 children, the report states. More than 11,000 Palestinians, including 3,540 women and 3,436 children, were injured with almost 10 percent suffering permanent disabilities.

Six civilians died in Israel and more than 60 Israeli soldiers died in fighting with the Palestinian resistance.

But a key finding is that the mass destruction and killing inflicted by Israel, often amounting to war crimes, “may have constituted military tactics reflective of a broader policy, approved at least tacitly by decision-makers at the highest levels of the Government of Israel.”

Sanctions create favorable conditions for Russian industry – trade minister

The sanctions have multiple advantages for Russia, as they motivate companies to turn to domestically produced goods and boost the economy, Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told RT.

“I don’t want to sound cynical, but since I’m in charge of the real sector of the economy, in charge of the Russian industry, I can say we’ve actually benefited in more ways than one from sanctions imposed last year,” said Manturov at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum (SPIEF), adding that before the sanctions were put into effect Russian companies paid less attention to domestic products.

“…now sanctions provided them [companies and consumers – Ed.] with additional motivation, and they are turning to Russian companies. This generates demand for the Russian industry. So, to me, this was an advantage, in a sense,” he added.

“We of course categorically condemn his act, but that doesn’t mean his motives weren’t entirely legitimate,” Taylor was quoted as saying by ABC News.

The shooter reportedly relied on the CofCC’s distorted data on African-American rapists to partially validate his actions.

“Even as we’re speaking right now, a white woman is probably being raped by a black man. If we’re going to have any kind of honest discussion of race in this country, you’re going to have to talk about black-on-white violence.”

Yep, someone wants race riots so the government can declare martial law!

 

 

Warren Buffett: Derivatives Are Still Weapons Of Mass Destruction And ‘Are Likely To Cause Big Trouble’

After all these years, the most famous investor in the world still believes that derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction. And you know what? He is exactly right. The next great global financial collapse that so many are warning about is nearly upon us, and when it arrives derivatives are going to play a starring role.

 

 

Israel’s Response to Everything: Collective Punishment

International law is clear. Fourth Geneva’s Article 33 states:

“No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.”

It doesn’t matter. Israel systematically ignores all international human rights, humanitarian and other laws it objects to – as well as dozens of earlier Security Council Resolutions condemning or censuring its actions and demanding they end, none in recent years because of US vetoes.

Is Big Brother spying on you through your computer?

Initially, the NSA built backdoors into the world’s most popular software program – Microsoft Windows – by 1999.

A top expert in the ‘microprocessors’ or ‘chips’ inside every computer – having helped start two semiconductor companies and a supercomputer firm – says:

He would be “surprised” if the US National Security Agency was not embedding “back doors” inside chips produced by Intel and AMD, two of the world’s largest semiconductor firms, giving them the possibility to access and control machines.

And a government expert told the Washington Post that the government “quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type” (confirmed). Even that is just “the tip of the iceberg”, according to a congress member briefed on the NSA’s spying program.

The New York Times reported in 2011 that German police were using spyware to turn on the webcam and microphone on peoples’ computers:

 

 

Will Seizure of Russian Assets Hasten Dollar Decline?

The timing of these actions is quite curious, coming as the Greek crisis in the EU seems to be reaching a tipping point and Greece, having perhaps abandoned the possibility of rapprochement with Europe, has been making overtures to Russia to help bail it out of its mess. And with the IMF’s recent statement pledging its full and unconditional support to Ukraine, it has become even more clear that the IMF and other major multilateral institutions are not blindly technical organizations, but rather are totally subservient lackeys to the foreign policy agenda emanating from Washington. Toe the DC party line and the internationalists will bail you out regardless of how badly you mess up, but if you even think about talking to Russia you will face serious consequences.

 

 

The Whistleblower’s Tale

Sterling’s case has drawn attention primarily for two reasons: it was part of the Obama Administration’s controversial crackdown on leakers and whistleblowers, and prosecutors had tried to force the Times reporter, James Risen, to divulge the name of his source, whom the government believed was Sterling. The case, known as United States of America v. Jeffrey Alexander Sterling, was treated mainly as a freedom-of-the-press issue, with Risen as the heroic centerpiece. Lost in the judicial briefs about the First Amendment was the black man in the middle.

Contrast this with how Patreaus was treated!

MEGA BEX ALERT – Putin’s Plot to Get Texas to Secede

To be sure, Russian support for a disintegrated North American continent remains far from official policy. “It’s just another mischief-making gambit,” NYU professor and noted Russian commentator Mark Galeotti told me. “Nothing seriously to be worried about.” Still, the mere fact that such language is coming not simply from the Russian fringe but has begun percolating upward fits into a broader, darker theme. “[It’s] indicative of Russia’s current information warfare tactics,” Galeotti continued, “which are not so much positive—in the sense of wanting to, or expecting to make something specific happen—as negative, trying to spread discord, uncertainty and chaos so as to prevent the West in general, and the USA in particular, from being able to develop and maintain a strong consensus policy against Moscow.”

 

 

Europe’s Malpractice of Greece

A modern hospital is equipped with a variety of specialized wards. One of them is the intensive care unit, or ICU. Here go those who are especially sick and in need of the most devoted attention. The existence of the ICU recognizes that illness and operations do not affect all patients in the same way. Some, who are robust, recover quickly. Others who are weaker, or older, or sicker, may require different treatments and more help.

International Criticism Of US Human Rights Record Over Pinkney Case

US violations of Constitutional and human rights have long been recognized by countries who have been unfortunate enough to find themselves victims of Western and US imperialism. These countries have, on occasion, also been vocal about them.

Gaza’s amazing dinosaur attraction takes you back millions of years

J G Ballard needed environmental change to bring the dinosaurs back to life in his 1962 novel The Drowned World. At Gaza’s DinoZoo, though, Palestinian engineers, with German support, have used animatronic technology to do just that.

Owner Iskander Abu-Karam has spent a lot of money on the attraction, not least because of the shortage of the resources needed. “I wanted to challenge the siege on Gaza and offer something new for my guests,” he explained. “DinoZoo is a very popular attraction that takes take our guests on a journey that started and ended millions of years ago.”

 

 

Papal Impropriety: The Dark Secrets Of The Vatican Bank

The Vatican Bank has been plagued by corruption and criminality ever since it was established in 1942. Yet this is hardly a surprise, given that no bona fide legal system is currently in place to ensure check and balances for the bank of God.

The scandals surrounding the Vatican’s finances strain credulity. At the heart of the Catholic Church, we find murder, collusion with violent crime, bribery and money laundering.

But the Church has, and will, never admit to any financial wrongdoing. With an image of sanctity to protect, the Catholic Church simply cannot admit to any illegality or immorality. In this respect, there is a parallel with the Holy See’s persistent denials of sexual abuse among the clergy. This pretence of moral purity can be maintained because the tiny Vatican state is not subject to Italian law enforcement.

The Catholic Church discovered 2 cases of child pornography possession within the Vatican last year

In his report, Milano said Vatican police had investigated “two delicate cases, of varying degrees of seriousness, of possession of child pornography material” by people living or working inside the city-state, which is the headquarters of the 1.2 billion member Church.

The prosecutor gave no details but a Vatican spokesman said one of them involved Jozef Wesolowski, a former archbishop who was arrested last September in the Vatican on charges of having paid for sex with children while he was a papal ambassador in the Dominican Republic.

Francis approved the arrest – the first inside the Vatican related to allegations of sexual abuse – in order to send a strong signal that even high-ranking Church officials would be held accountable if they committed abuse, the Vatican said at the time.

Italian media reported at the time of his arrest that child pornography was found on his computer. He is currently under arrest in the Vatican awaiting trial.

Lessons from the UN Gaza report: Next stop, ICC?

To the relief of Israel and the chagrin of many others, the UN report into last summer’s war in Gaza is not an indictment of Israel. It does not declare conclusively that Israel committed war crimes and it is certainly not one-sided. The Human Rights Council report released on Monday is valuable, nevertheless, when read as a preview of what might transpire in a much more consequential body investigating the 2014 war — the International Criminal Court.

 

 

Swedish ship sets sail from Italy in bid to break Gaza blockade

A flotilla carrying pro-Palestinian activists is heading to Crete en route to the Gaza Strip in a bid to break the Israeli and Egyptian-imposed blockade on the Palestinian enclave.

The Marianne of Gothenburg, a Scandinavian fishing boat, traveled from Sweden through the waters of Norway, Germany, France, Spain and Portugal before reaching Messina, Italy, last week.

“The short stop in Messina was an intensive one with meetings with peace activists and a press conference at the city hall,” the group noted on its website.

 

 

Israeli settlers chop down 70 olive trees in Salfit, Nablus

Israeli settlers chopped down more than 70 olive trees between the towns of Yasuf and Jammain in the northern West Bank districts of Salfit and Nablus on Monday.

Palestinian farmers said the trees, which lay close to the illegal Israeli settlements of Ariel and Taffuh, had been cut down using chainsaws.

A local, Khalid Maali, said that because the land lay close to settler roads near the Zaatara checkpoint it had been easy for the settlers to flee afterwards.

The olive industry supports the livelihoods of roughly 80,000 families in the occupied West Bank, and the Salfit district in particular is known for its fertile soil and large olive trees.

Settlers attack olive trees in a bid to oust Palestinian farmers from their land, and a loss of a year’s crops can cause destitution for farming families.

It is worse than a year. It takes ten years of growth before an olive tree produces a usable crop.

 

 

Scathing reactions over Arab MK’s participation in Gaza flotilla

oint Arab List MK Bassel Ghattas’ decision to participate in the upcoming Gaza flotilla has caused an uproar in the Knesset on Monday.

Kulanu MK Meirav Ben-Ari (Kulanu) requested a special Knesset session on the matter, which was scheduled for Wednesday.

“The MK is making a cynical use of his immunity and looking to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with provocation rather than peace,” Ben-Ari said. “A member of Knesset who acts against the Knesset and the State of Israel, his immunity should be reconsidered and the Knesset’s Ethics Committee should examine this case.”

In an interview with Ynet, Ghattas called MKs condemning his decision “hypocrites,” saying they were “trying to make headlines at my expense. I want to remind them that Israel apologized over the Marmara affair.”

The new “Save a Life – Surrender Your Knife” program is in full swing and police are telling us that they have joined forces with an already growing trend in the United Kingdom to ban “pointy” knives.

Marc Faber: Central Banks Will Blame Gold For The Financial Crisis

 

 

Pope Francis says “Not Christian if you buy, manufacture or support guns”. Then the Vatican and Pope are not a Christians!

People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christian, Pope Francis said on Sunday.

Since the Pope even implied “investing” in weapons makes you a non-Christian too…. I would then say this.

I will look forward to the Pope now having everyone of his security guards and Police at the Vatican get rid of their guns. I will look forward to the Vatican not investing anymore money buying guns for their Police and security.

I want to see the Vatican and all world governments get rid of their guns to prove how Christian they are!

So…. before the push comes to take away our guns, due to having them is not “Christian” now, lets see how Christian the Pope is.

In George Orwell’s 1984, the leaders of Oceania presented “Two Minutes Hate” in which the image of an enemy was put on display and loyal Oceanianians expressed their rage, all the better to prepare them for the country’s endless wars and their own surrender of freedom. And, now, in America, you have The New York Times.

Net of the latest ELA increase, when adding some €38 billion in collateralized EFSF bonds and other collateral usage, we find that we have not only reached parity but crossed it: as of this moment Greek deposits, which are generously estimated at €120 billion but in reality are lower, are less than the total ECB claims on Greek banks and the Bank of Greece, amounting to €126 billion. And with that the possibility of a Greek bail-in which could amount to up to 100% of total Greek deposits, becomes all too real.

According to The Times, phthalates, chemicals that are found in shower curtains, car dashboards and cleaning materials, “can be breathed in, consumed or absorbed through the skin of pregnant women, inhibiting testosterone production in male foetuses, leading to sons with low sperm counts”.

Jørgensen said that society should be “very worried” by these studies, and advised women to try to avoid cosmetics.

“They’re very good at communicating through separate avenues where it’s very difficult to track,” Nunes said. “That’s why when you get a young person who is willing to get into these chat rooms, go on the Internet and get radicalized, it’s something we are not only unprepared [for], we are also not used to it in this country.”

Australia passes controversial anti-piracy web censorship law

The Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill 2015 allows companies to go to a Federal Court judge to get overseas sites blocked if their “primary purpose” is facilitating copyright infringement.

Dr Matthew Rimmer, an associate professor at the Australian National University College of Law, points out that there is a lack of definitions within the bill: “What is ‘primary purpose’? There’s no definition. What is ‘facilitation’? Again, there’s no definition.” That’s dangerous, he believes, because it could lead to “collateral damage,” whereby sites that don’t intend to hosting infringing material are blocked because a court might rule they were covered anyway. Moreover, Rimmer told The Sydney Morning Herald that controversial material of the kind released by WikiLeaks is often under copyright, which means that the new law could be used to censor information that was embarrassing, but in the public interest.

The findings come weeks after the Federal Communications Commission introduced new rules meant to protect “net neutrality” – the principle that all data is equal online – and keep ISPs from holding traffic speeds for ransom.

Sanctions against Russia extended until 31 January 2016 to the applause of the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and without any discussion. Moscow, it seems, is not very surprising.

Going on holiday to Greece? Tourists warned to take enough money in case cash machines are switched off in euro crisis

Crisis plans to help British holidaymakers were being drawn up last night as Greece lurched closer to bankruptcy and exit from the eurozone.

As the Government held talks on how Britons will be assisted if they become stranded, tourists were advised to take enough euro notes to cover emergencies in case Greek banks switch off cash machines.

It came as Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras defiantly refused to implement austerity measures needed to unlock emergency funds to avoid a debt default.

 

Pentagon Chief says Ukraine Issue Demands Political & Military Response

Arriving in Berlin on Sunday, Carter said that the cooling of relations between Washington, Europe and Moscow could last until the end of Vladimir Putin’s presidency. That’s because Russia is unlikely to change its current political course while Putin remains the country’s leader, Carter said. As such, both the U.S. and NATO are preparing for a long period of tension. Carter also criticized recent comments by President Putin that Russia would target its military forces against any “threats” it faces, saying that such behavior is ‘inappropriate’.

Translation: Putin refuses to run Russia the way the western money-junkies want it run.

 

 

Turkey grants permission for engineering survey on off-shore part of Turkish Stream

Turkey has granted permission to conduct an engineering survey on the off-shore part of Turkish Stream pipeline, Russia’s gas giant Gazprom said in a statement on Monday.
The document envisages engineering survey on the first line of the pipeline in the exclusive economic zone and also in territorial waters of Turkey.
The off-shore stretch of the Turkish pipeline will consist of four lines each with the capacity of 15.75 bln cubic meters.
It is planned that gas supplies via the first line will be fully used to meet the needs of the growing Turkish market.

 

 

Russia does not want to get into Ukraine civil conflict — top security official

Russia does not want to get into the civil conflict in Ukraine but can’t hinder an inflow of Russians to east Ukrainian militia, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said.
“We are ready to render and are rendering support to Ukrainian refugees – who by the way are not accepted in the European Union or the United States – but it is not expedient to get involved in the civil conflict,” Patrushev said in an interview with the Kommersant business daily published Monday.

 

 

Surprise, surprise, US and NATO falsifying ‘threat from Russia’

The United States and its NATO allies are exaggerating the so-called threat from Russia to justify surrounding and destabilizing the country as well as increasing US arms exports to the region, an anti-war activist and journalist in Maine says.

US concerned over Greece-Russia friendship — media

The United States is worried about the strengthening of Greece’s ties with Russia and that is why Washington is secretly convincing Germany and its partners in the European Union to agree to compromise in the talks on the settlement of Athens’ debt, The Financial Times reported.
“As Washington tries to maintain a united western front in support of sanctions on Russia over Ukraine, a Greek default could provide Moscow an opportunity to sow new divisions among America’s European allies,” the influential British newspaper wrote Sunday.
“You can easily see how geopolitically this would be a gift to Russia,” FT quoted Sebastian Mallaby at the Council on Foreign Relations as saying. “You do not want Europe to have to deal with a Greece that is a member of NATO but which all of a sudden hates the west and is cosying up to Russia.”

 

 

Taliban militants capture region in northern Afghanistan

Taliban militants have captured Dashte Barchi region in Afghanistan’s northern Kunduz Province for the second time in the last few days, the region’s Governor Nasiruddin Saidi confirmed on Monday.
Saidi notified the central government about the complicated situation in the Kunduz Province. According to Tolo News, last Saturday Taliban militants captured another region in the province – Char Dara, killing 12 servicemen and injuring 16 more. Afghanistan’s security forces launched a counter-terrorist operation to regain control of the territory and oust militants from the region.

 

 

Community Organizer to Black Youth: Avoid Forgiveness, Do Not ‘Police Your Rage’

In the wake of the gruesome massacre of nine black churchgoers by an angry racist white gunman in Charleston, South Carolina, comes an article that encourages black youth to be angry, racist, uninformed, unforgiving, intentionally opaque, and to explicitly exclude and ignore “white folks” in a direct call for unrest and anarchy.

 

 

MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT PART 2? NEW BILL INTRODUCED SPELLS BAD NEWS FOR GMO ACTIVISTS

A couple of years ago, a bill was introduced (H.R. 933) allowing big biotech corporations, like Monsanto, to override United States federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the US. This rendered the government powerless when it came to stopping other biotechnology corporations from planting and harvesting. The measure shields sellers of genetically modified seeds from lawsuits, even if the resulting crops cause harm. As a result, the public labelled this bill “The Monsanto Protection Act.”

Ukrainians testify to a life of poverty and violence under US-backed government

Last month marked the one-year anniversary of the election of oligarch Petro Poroshenko to the presidency of Ukraine. The Poroshenko regime came to power in the aftermath of a US- and German-backed coup, spearheaded by fascist forces, which ousted President Victor Yanukovych in February 2014. Since coming to power, the right-wing government has waged a brutal military campaign against pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Donbass region, implemented brutal austerity measures and banned the public display of Communist symbols.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.” — Robert A. Heinlein, “Beyond This Horizon”, 1942

UN Court Seeks Prison Term for Journalist

The United Nations “Special Tribunal for Lebanon” (STL) was ostensibly set up to find and bring to justice the killers of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, who was murdered a decade ago along with more than 20 others in a massive bomb explosion. But rather than fulfilling its mandate after squandering some $500 million tax dollars, the UN court is seeking to put journalist Karma Khayat (shown) in prison for seven years — not for killing the late Lebanese leader, but for her groundbreaking reporting on the case that exposed the court’s stunning incompetence. The Hague-based UN outfit is also demanding that Khayat’s media outlet, Beirut-based TV news station Al-Jadeed, hand over up to $7 million in “fines.”

It was the assassination of Hariri, blamed on Syria, that forced Syria to leave Lebanon, leaving it wide open for the subsequent attack by Israel.

 

 

Marines looking to deploy on foreign ships because the U.S. doesn’t have enough

Anyone who thinks Barack Obama never saw a dollar he didn’t want to spend . . . OK, that’s probably true, but there are some reasons for spending a dollar for which he doesn’t have much use. And as we all know, the military is at the top of that list. Every dollar spent on the Armed Forces is a dollar Obama can’t spend regulating industry, having the IRS harass his political opponents or illegally subsidizing health care premiums.

So why build enough ships for the Marines to fulfill their responsibilities. President Leading From Behind doesn’t want the U.S. to be a global leader anyway, and hey, there’s always foreign ships! Maybe they can hitch a ride on them. Now this is the point where you probably think I’m slipping into the absurd to get your attention.

Whoops! Nobody verified Clinton Foundation a legal charity

Along with filing financial reports filled with errors and misstatements, “Big Four” accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers neglected to verify whether the Clinton Foundation obtained tax-exempt status for its various sub-entities, including its AIDS charity, contends respected Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel.

As WND has reported, Ortel’s six-month investigation indicates the Clintons have diverted tens millions of dollars donated for charitable purposes to the personal enrichment of themselves and their close associates.

He says PWC neglected to exercise due diligence in fulfilling its professional responsibilities in conducting even the most basic inquiries required of an honest audit.

 

 

Trigger Warning: AP Photo Shows Gun Pointed at Ted Cruz’s Head

A series of Associated Press photos from a 2nd Amendment event in Iowa on Saturday appear to show Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with a gun pointed at his head. Cruz, who was speaking at a “Celebrate the 2nd Amendment Event” in Iowa, was photographed next to a poster of a gun, which looked like it was pointed right between the Texas senator’s eyes.

Remember that whole media freakout about Sarah Palin being to blame for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords because her SarahPAC used a crosshairs graphic to single out “targeted” districts?

Ukraine’s Pres. Poroshenko Says Overthrow of Yanukovych Was a Coup

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko requests the supreme court of Ukraine to declare that his predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych, was overthrown by an illegal operation; in other words, that the post-Yanukovych government, including Poroshenko’s own Presidency, came into power from a coup, not from something democratic, not from any authentic constitutional process at all.

Free Speech Under Fire: Subpoenas, Gag Orders over Reader Comments at Reason Magazine

A bizarre government assault on Reason Magazine has been in progress for the past two weeks, and in a nice Kafkaesque touch, the magazine was barred from talking about the situation with a gag order.

In fact, they weren’t even allowed to acknowledge the existence of the subpoenas issued over comments left by readers to a blog post. Fortunately, Reason was able to get the gag order lifted on Thursday, with help from the U.S. Attorney’s Office… but the saga is far from over, and it has disturbing implications for free speech in the Information Age.

 

 

Bankers Think They Have an Ethical Duty to Steal From Taxpayers

Ed Kane, a professor of finance at Boston College, studies the dangerous risk-taking of giant banks. He sees the cultures of Wall Street and regulators coming together to turn taxpayers into victims of theft and great harm. Like extreme drunk drivers before MADD or smokers on airplanes prior to the 1980s ban, megabankers currently get away with endangering others with little fear of repercussions. Kane discusses how changes in corporate law and culture must make it legally and socially unacceptable for bankers to blow their toxic fumes at the rest of us.

 

 

Feds bust four fake cancer charities that defrauded $187 million from Americans

A string of cancer charities — the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Breast Cancer Society and the Children’s Cancer Fund of America — have turned out to be manipulative frauds run by a family of con artists. The money they raised for cancer patients actually went to pay for personal luxuries instead — Disney World trips, jet ski outings, new cars, college tuition and luxury travel.

“This is as about as bad as it can get: taking money away from cancer victims,” said Jessica Rich, chief of the Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection. The FTC was joined by the attorney general and law enforcement officials from all 50 states in the case against the fake cancer charities.

That these charities were fakes has been known for years, but only now is the government finally taking action, to quell the public outrage that such things are allowed to happen here in the US.

 

 

The truth is out: money is just an IOU, and the banks are rolling in it

Last week, something remarkable happened. The Bank of England let the cat out of the bag. In a paper called “Money Creation in the Modern Economy”, co-authored by three economists from the Bank’s Monetary Analysis Directorate, they stated outright that most common assumptions of how banking works are simply wrong, and that the kind of populist, heterodox positions more ordinarily associated with groups such as Occupy Wall Street are correct. In doing so, they have effectively thrown the entire theoretical basis for austerity out of the window.

Last month’s G20 Summit in Australia came and went without the protests and riots we’ve come to expect at the summit in recent years.

Invisible No More: US Stealth Subs to Lose Unbeatable Advantage

Almost 60 years ago US stealth submarines had become game-changers in underwater warfare, while the advent of nuclear propulsion allowed this craft to remain beneath the waves for protracted periods of time. No longer could anti-submarine forces rely on radio or radars in order to detect elusive US subs.

However, a new technological leap is about to upset the US Navy’s applecart. Big Data, non-acoustic detection, and fire-control technology will allow hostile antisubmarine (ASW) forces to detect the traces of a US stealth sub, converting this information into tracking and targeting data.

Israel Foreign Ministry removes video ridiculing foreign press from website

An animated video clip mocking the foreign press coverage of last summer’s conflict in Gaza released by Israel’s Foreign Ministry was removed from the ministry’s website following criticism and complaints from representatives of the foreign press corps in Israel.

“The aim of the video was to illustrate Hamas’ crimes, and once it was interpreted otherwise it was decided to remove it,” Ministry Spokesman Immanuel Nachshon said Sunday, after Foreign Ministry Director Dore Gold ordered the English-language short off the ministry’s website.

US, NATO Bracing for Long-Term Standoff With Russia Under Putin and Beyond

Instead of building bridges and accepting Russia’s stance as having merit, the US and the North Atlantic Alliance have chosen to immerse themselves in shaping up for a lasting showdown with Moscow.

The Sun “Does Not” Cause Skin Cancer

Most of us have been bombarded about the dangers of the sun by experts and the media. However, because it is one of the most pervasive and inaccurate myths persisting in most of the patients I see, I can only assume you are under the same misunderstanding.

Unfortunately, this myth has contributed to massive amounts of disease and illness in our society.

 

 

“Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards”: The Alice in Wonderland World of Fast-tracked Secret Trade Agreements

While the deals are being negotiated, lawmakers can see their terms only under the strictest secrecy, and they can be subjected to criminal prosecution for revealing those terms. What we know of them comes only through WikiLeaks. The agreements are being treated as if they were a matter of grave national security, yet they are not about troop movements or military strategy. Something else is obviously going on.

I do not consider myself bound by a treaty (or any other obligation) not approved of by all of the people, and by that I do NOT mean that grand asylum for the aged and inform on Capitol Hill, but We The People. If treaties are the highest law of the land they deserve the highest scrutiny and review by the public before passage.

 

 

Germany & the Greek Crisis

  • Bankers using Chancellor Merkel to destroy Europe.

The last war against Germany, which wound down in 1945 without a peace treaty, is continued today by the banksters. The German people, like the American people, must hand over the fruits of their prodigious industry to financial pharaohs growing fat off the labor of wage-slaves. In the plutocrats’ unending battle to draw all wealth and power to themselves, the latest weapons are Greece and its financial woes, exploited through direct transfers of massive wealth to international banking cartels, which are being leveraged additionally to bring down European civilization. And the person with her finger on the launch button of this economic weapon of mass destruction is Germany’s chancellor, Angela Dorothea Merkel.

China Counters Rothschilds in Asia

  • Rothschild-controlled banking nations now facing deflationary pressures.

US and British Spies Targeted Antivirus Companies

When the Russian security firm Kaspersky Lab disclosed recently that it had been hacked, it noted that the attackers, believed to be from Israel, had been in its network since sometime last year.

The company also said the attackers seemed intent on studying its antivirus software to find ways to subvert the software on customer machines and avoid detection.

Now newly published documents released by Edward Snowden show that the NSA and its British counterpart, GCHQ, were years ahead of Israel and had engaged in a systematic campaign to target not only Kaspersky software but the software of other antivirus and security firms as far back as 2008.

Governments are the biggest cyber-criminals of all!

 

 

UN Suggests Top Officials Sanctioned Israel’s War Crimes Against Gaza

A widely-anticipated United Nations inquiry into the 2014 attack on Gaza released Monday suggests that the Israeli government may have deliberately targeted Palestinian civilians during the assault, while the report concludes that both Israel and Hamas may be guilty of war crimes against humanity.

“The extent of the devastation and human suffering in Gaza was unprecedented and will impact generations to come,” the chair of the UN-appointed commission, former New York Supreme Court Justice Mary McGowan Davis, said during a Monday press briefing. Davis was joined on the commission by Dr. Doudou Diene of Senegal, who formerly served as the United Nations Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

“He took off with my truck. I call the police, and they kill him. It was over a damn pack of cigarettes. I wouldn’t buy him none, and I lose my son for that” Comstock said.

Free Range Parents Cleared: CPS Declares Kids Playing Outside Alone is Not Neglect

Police and Child Protective Services in Maryland twice removed the Meitiv children, 10 and 6, from their parents for child endangerment because they played alone at a nearby park.

Merck, Other Pharma Companies Helped Fund Activist Groups Who Petitioned the EPA to Regulate Nano-Silver as a Pesticide

Last year it was revealed that a handful of the activist agencies behind the petition to the EPA to regulate nano-silver as a pesticide received funding from pharmaceutical giant Merck, which annually has hundreds of billions of dollars in profits from patented antibioics which many believe are less effective, less safe and far more expensive than colloidal nano-silver products.

Further investigation by this reporter discovered that the initial revelations were just the tip of the iceberg when it came Merck and other pharmaceutical companies’ funding of the groups who supported the EPA’s regulation of nano-silver.

Two faces of Hillary: Harassment reports tripled at Clinton, Kerry State Dept.

While presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton claims the U.S. State Department was successful in achieving its tasks under her direction, it appears that once again the former First Lady and Senator is exaggerating her successes during her tenure as Secretary of State. On the campaign trail, the woman who believes there is still gender inequality and continued bullying of woman in America, is remaining silent about a new report that tells voters a different story about her fighting for women’s rights. For example, reported incidents of sexual harassment at the State Department have almost tripled under both Secretary Clinton and current Secretary John Kerry, according to an inspector general’s report released in the month of June.

Congress released nearly 200 pages of newly uncovered emails involving former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, raising questions Monday about whether the Obama administration and the Democratic presidential candidate herself were truthful when they said they turned over all of her email communications on Benghazi.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the select House committee looking into the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya, demanded the State Department say whether it has the emails — a way of testing whether the administration withheld them against the wishes of the committee, or whether Mrs. Clinton never turned them over in the first place, contradicting her public statements.

The ‘psychotic’ driver who ploughed into crowds of people in a busy Austrian city centre yesterday has a history of domestic violence, police have revealed.

One of the three people he killed while speeding through Graz’s packed shopping district at 90mph was a man who got married just two weeks ago.

BUMP TO THE TOP!

So under the logic offered by Obama in the wake of the Charleston shooting, we should now take cars away from those drivers who drive safely and obey the laws.

Over at Refreshing News I am engaged in a debate with an obvious gun-grabber schill, to whom I posted…

Those driven to mass murder by psychiatric drugs will not be stopped by the hypothetical unavailability of guns. Looking through the case studies at ssristories.org, we see murders committed with baseball bats, knives, cars, household cleaners, and so forth.

The deadliest mass death incident in a US school did not involve guns. 45 people died at the Bath, Michigan elementary school from a bombing.

Let’s put this gun-ban myth into perspective.

Nathan Campbell deliberately ran his car onto a Venice sidewalk, killing 1 andwounding 17.

Nobody called for a car ban!

Andrew Stack III deliberately crashed his plane into the IRS.

Nobody called for a plane ban!

Dr. Harold Shipman deliberately murdered 250 patients. And 400,000 Americans die every year from medical mistakes!

Nobody called for a doctor ban!

Dylann Roof deliberately shot up a church, killing 9.

… and Obama wants to take guns away from law abiding citizens?

How does that make any sense?

To which he replied with what seems a pre-conceived talking point the gun-grabbers have ready for this debate.

“Michael, you don’t understand (like many pro-gunners) the concept of primary purpose.

“The primary purpose of an automobile is to get you from point A to point B. Sure, you can kill someone with a car, but that’s not the reason why it was built.

“Planes, also, are constructed to get you from point A to point B though in a different manner, obviously. Sure, you can kill someone with a plane, but that’s not its primary purpose.

“The primary purpose of a doctor is to treat your medical condition. Sure, a doctor can kill you, but he wasn’t trained with that specific goal in mind.

“Do you think Subway sandwiches should be banned because I can take one and shove into your throat until you suffocate? No.

“The primary purpose of a gun, however, IS to kill.”

To which I replied (and you might want to save this)…

The primary purpose of a gun is to put food on the table, which I have done.

The primary purpose of a gun is to chase pests out of the farm fields, which I have also done.

The primary purpose of a firearm is to protect ones home from criminals, which I have done.

The primary purpose of a gun is to put holes in paper for recreation, which I have done.

Your lack of imagination regarding the usefulness of guns is no excuse for those of us who build and use them for peaceful and lawful purposes to cease doing so.

And finally, the primary purpose of guns according to the Founding Fathers of this nation is to give government a reason to mind its own business, which sadly is becoming a major issue right now.

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” (Thomas Jefferson Papers p. 334, 1950)

The Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. .. (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” — The Federalist, No. 46 — James Madison

“[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens.” — The Federalist, No. 29 – Alexander Hamilton

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Jefferson’s “Commonplace Book,” 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764

“[A]rms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.” — Thoughts On Defensive War, 1775 — Thomas Paine

“While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny.” – Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people!” – Patrick Henry

Obama intent to toughen gun laws, with or without Congress’ help

In the wake of the shooting deaths at a black church in South Carolina, President Obama sounded as if he has abandoned gun control laws, but his administration is steadily pursuing a wide variety of gun regulations through executive action.

At the state level, gun control advocates are advancing gun regulations in at least 31 legislatures.

To show how bone-headed this approach to the Charleston shooting is, just imagine how the story would have ended if just one of those people in the church had carried a firearm. Only one person owuld be dead; the bad guy, and the good people would all still be alive. This actually happened at a church in Colorado in 2007 when a mass shooter entered a church intending to murder Christians but was dropped in his tracks by a church member who was a former police officer.

Those people in Charleston are all dead in part because they believed it when they were told that the police would protect them and they didn’t need to protect themselves.

But the truth is the police are never present to prevent or thwart a crime. They show up after it is all over to get their pictures taken with the bloody bodies for the newspapers.

One more point. Those driven to mass murder by psychiatric drugs will not be stopped by the hypothetical unavailability of guns. Looking through the case studies at ssristories.org, we see murders committed with baseball bats, knives, cars, household cleaners, and so forth.

The deadliest mass death incident in a US school did not involve guns. 45 people died at the Bath, Michigan elementary school from a bombing.

Let’s put this gun-ban myth into perspective.

Nathan Campbell deliberately ran his car onto a Venice sidewalk, killing 1 andwounding 17.

Nobody called for a car ban!

Andrew Stack III deliberately crashed his plane into the IRS.

Nobody called for a plane ban!

Dr. Harold Shipman deliberately murdered 250 patients. And 400,000 Americans die every year from medical mistakes!

Nobody called for a doctor ban!

Dylann Roof deliberately shot up a church, killing 9.

… and Obama wants to take guns away from law abiding citizens?

How does that make any sense?

Bilderberg: Started by a Nazi, still with the same agenda

When you want to discover what an organization is really all about, it is important to dig down to the roots. And when you uncover the roots of the Bilderberg Group, you find some very unsettling things. It turns out that the Bilderberg Group has had Nazi connections from the very beginning, and it continues to advance the agenda of the Nazis to this very day.

This year, the Bilderberg Group met from June 11th to June 14th at the Interalpen Hotel which is near the city of Telfs, Austria. This organization has so much power that even several days before the event police kept everyone (including reporters) 10 kilometers away from the hotel. If this is just a group of private citizens getting together to chat about world issues, why all the security? What is so special about this group of people that rates such extraordinary measures? And why are they so bound and determined to keep all of the rest of us away from them?

Netanyahu: Israel rejects international “dictates”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel firmly rejects any attempts to impose international “dictates” on it regarding the Palestinian-Israeli dispute, arguing that his position is necessary to guarantee Israel’s security and achieve peace.

This from the same nation that issues dictates to the rest of the world on an ongoing basis. Dictates that Iran not have nuclear weapons. Dictates that Syria surrender the Golan Heights. Dictates that Lebanon surrender the Litani River. Dictates that nobody bring food into Gaza. And so forth.

This is one of those major double-standards that discredit Israel’s government.
