THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike, who has not already enlisted in this sacred war should do so now and here. It is not sufficient that you should buy no goods made in Germany. You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German–made goods or who patronises German ships or shipping… we will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends.” — Samuel Undermeyer, in a Radio Broadcast on WABC, New York, August 6, 1933. Reported in the New York Times, August 7, 1933.

Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo Crashes During Flight Test

Virgin Galactic said its SpaceShipTwo rocket plane suffered an “in-flight anomaly” during a powered test flight on Friday that resulted in the loss of the aircraft.

I guess “exploded and blown to smithereens” is not considered appropriate public relations.

I don’t mean to be flip, but I heard “anomaly” used a lot at NASA as the description for something that had just rekitted itself into a smoking hole in the ground. NASA used that word following the explosion of Challenger.

I hope the best for the pilots, but as of last report only one parachute was seen. Gizmodo is reporting that this flight was the first test of an improved fuel. Burt Rutan is a genius at aviation design, but these things do happen when you are on the cutting edge.

UPDATE: One pilot dead, the other seriously injured.

Google Survey: Majority of US Citizens Think US Gives Too Much to Israel

Today 6 in 10 Americans believe the U.S. gives too much aid to Israel

Surveying Americans about U.S. aid to Israel requires putting it into proper perspective. Given Israel’s position as the leading single U.S. foreign aid recipient (by a wide margin), as in 1989 asking the foreign aid question requires embedding relevant data to obtain a bona fide response. When such data is included, the majority of Americans (60.7 percent) believe U.S. aid to Israel is excessive. The major response, that aid to Israel is “Much too much” is 33.9 percent of Americans. Some 26.8 percent believe it is “too much” while 25.9 percent believe it is “about right.” Only 13.4 percent of Americans believe U.S. aid to Israel is not enough.

Fast food marketing for children disproportionately targets certain communities

A newly published research study examining only marketing directed at children on the interior and exterior of fast food restaurants has found that black, as well as middle-income communities and rural areas, are disproportionately exposed to such marketing tactics.

Authored by Arizona State University researcher Punam Ohri-Vachaspati and her colleagues, the study is the first to examine the use of child-directed marketing on the interior and exterior of fast food restaurants and its relationship to demographics. It adds to a substantial body of literature on the effects of various marketing efforts on fast food consumption and their relationship to health outcomes in children…

FBI Holds Secret Meeting To Scare Congress Into Backdooring Phone Encryption

In September, both Apple and Google announced plans to encrypt information on iOS and Android devices by default. Almost immediately, there was a collective freakout by law enforcement types. But, try as they might, these law enforcement folks couldn’t paint any realistic scenario of where this would be a serious problem. Sure, they conjured up scenarios, but upon inspection they pretty much all fell apart. Instead, what was clear was that encryption could protectusers from people copying information off of phones without permission, and, in fact, the FBI itself recommends you encrypt the data on your phone.

But it didn’t stop FBI director James Comey from ignoring the advice of his own agency and pushing for a new law that would create back doors (he called them front doors, but when asked to explain the difference, he admitted that he wasn’t “smart enough” to understand the distinction) in such encryption.

Breakable encryption means the FBI can spy on law abiding citizens, but as we proved with our NSA challenges, real criminals and terrorists will remain invisible.

Cops send MRAP, SWAT to get money from 75-yr-old

A sheriff recently deployed an armored military vehicle and 24 armed SWAT team members to collect a fine from 75-year-old Roger Hoeppner recently in Marathon County, Wisconsin. The town was levying a $500-a-day fine at Hoeppner for not cleaning up equipment on his own property, saying he was in violation of zoning ordinances. Hoeppner had been fighting the fines in courts, but the police decided it was time to collect. So they send in the heavy artillery and then escorted the 75-year-old to the bank, forced him to withdraw $80,000, and then hand it directly over to the police. His wife was so shaken, she had to be hospitalized. Hoeppner says his retirement fund is now depleted.

What happens when your friend’s smartphone can tell that you’re lying

In just a few weeks, the next installment of “The Hunger Games” will arrive in movie theaters. The latest in a long line of films to depict a future all-knowing or controlling government — think “1984” or “Minority Report” — the dystopian tale will likely be a runaway hit. But the power to seem all-knowing – or at least know more than do now – may soon lie in technology that’s already in the palm of your hand.

We are nearing a point where our smartphones will be able to recognize a face or voice, in real life or on-screen. And identification is only the most basic of the possibilities. Many app-makers are experimenting with software that can also analyze – able to determine someone’s emotions or honesty just by a few facial cues.

Smart phones have the power to run voice-stress software. But what worries the powers that be is not that we will use it on each other, but on THEM!

Netanyahu wants to test who controls the U.S. Congress, Israel or U.S. Government

Israeli resistance to deals on Palestinian peace and Iran’s nuclear program has strained U.S.-Israeli relations and will test if Congress is more loyal to Prime Minister Netanyahu or President Obama. But the tension underscores a deeper division between the two countries, says ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Israel is trying to assert its control over the US Congress, and it is a reckless and dangerous exercise in hubris. If the friends of Israel go down to defeat next week (and I am hoping the image at the top of this page will help to accomplish that) Israel’s fall from power in DC will be truly underway.

Judge enforces [then rejects] Ebola isolation of defiant Maine nurse

A judge on Friday ordered an American nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone for the disease to obey a state-imposed quarantine after she defied Maine officials and went for a bike ride.

UPDATE: The corporate media are now reporting that the same judge REJECTED quarantine for the nurse! The nurse, who already defied a previous quarantine to go on a bike ride in full view of the media, is on the honor system to keep herself three feet away from other people while waiting for further court hearings.

Here are the facts. Kaci Hickox’s roommate in Africa tested positive for Ebola. As of the 29th of October, even the CDC was saying that close proximity to an Ebola patient was legitimate grounds for the restriction of movement. Kaci is just 11 days into the 21-day quarantine period (and remember that some researchers are saying that the incubation period for this strain can be as long as 42 days). The approved test for Ebola has a record for false-negatives, and 13% of the people that have Ebola do not display symptoms. Even CDC is now admitting Ebola can be transmitted through sneezes, with MIT saying the range of such sneezes is 20 feet, and through secretions left on surfaces such as counter tops and doorknobs.

Everyone is still treating this as a political issue, making their decisions based on economics, public relations, and making sure the voters show up at the polls next Tuesday. They are NOT making their choices based on the science. And that, far more than the Ebola itself, scares me!

Pentagon to monitor Iraq war veterans for chemical weapons exposure

After denials and cover-ups, the Pentagon has stated it will carry outmedical exams and health monitoring for service members and veterans exposed to chemical weapons in Iraq.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced the new monitoring measures, to begin in early 2015, after a New York Times report on the matter. Several soldiers shared details about their “exposure and inadequate treatment” by the military after handling chemical weapons like mustard and sarin gas while they were deployed in Iraq.

The Flu Is Not A Season: How To Naturally Avoid Getting Sick This Winter

by Alanna Ketler

As it turns out the flu is not a season. People generally tend to get sicker when the weather gets cooler, this is true, but does it have to happen?

Let’s have a look at some of the key factors that are causing the flu…

 

 

Police investigating video depicting officers joking about rape

Austin police are trying to determine if a YouTube video posted Thursday evening of what appears to be two officers making a rape joke is authentic.

The video appears to be dashboard camera footage from a patrol car and a conversation between two men who, according to the YouTube post, are Austin police officers.

Towards the end of the video, a whistle can be heard, followed by one of them saying “go ahead and call the cops. They can’t unrape you.”

Austin police did not immediately respond to a request for more information Friday morning.

Dating Website Sued for Making Fake Lovers

The Federal Trade Commission filed suit against a British-based dating company alleging that it created fake automated profiles to trick paid members into believing that they were receiving texts from other real people on its several dating websites.

The FTC alleged that JDI Dating created the fake profiles, tricking new users into thinking they were getting text messages from real humans. The profiles, though, were connected to automated “flirting” software.

Users were enticed to sign up by being offered free memberships to the various sites, and upon first login, the flirty texts would flood a new user’s inbox. But new users were unable to reply to any messages unless they upgraded to the paid service. Fees from $10 to $30 a month were charged to a new user’s credit card to give them the capability to engage in messaging other members.

Millions of websites hit by Drupal hack attack

In its “highly critical” announcement, Drupal’s security team said anyone who did not take action within seven hours of the bug being discovered on 15 October should “should proceed under the assumption” that their site was compromised.

Anyone who had not yet updated should do so immediately, it warned.

However, the team added, simply applying this update might not remove any back doors that attackers have managed to insert after they got access. Sites should begin investigations to see if attackers had got away with data, said the warning.

“Attackers may have copied all data out of your site and could use it maliciously,” said the notice. “There may be no trace of the attack.” It also provided a link to advice that would help sites recover from being compromised.

Mark Stockley, an analyst at security firm Sophos, said the warning was “shocking”.

 

 

The CIA torture cover-up continues

One of the numerous issues being carefully avoided by the political establishment in the US midterm elections, now less than one week away, is the constitutional crisis surrounding the plot to cover up torture carried out by the CIA.

All of the institutions of government are complicit in the cover-up, which is centered on preventing the publication of a Senate Intelligence Committee summary detailing US torture practices far exceeding in scope and brutality those made public so far. The logic behind the cover-up is simple: the report details crimes so harrowing that its publication would prove politically explosive.

The symptoms of this disease of the Western World, euphemistically called ‘Corporatism’, would be hidden from the People in a denial which part of an ontology of a most unhealthy transfer of resources; a most unhealthy debauching of ‘Currency’?

BILL CLINTON: Republicans Are Trying To ‘Cash In On The Misery Of The American People’

Former President Bill Clinton claimed on Thursday that one of the main reasons Republicans are expected to perform so strongly in the upcoming midterm elections is their willingness to capitalize on the lingering effects of the 2008 economic recession.

“And you Americans are all WRONG to decide who to vote for because of irrelevant things like whether you have a job or not, lost your home, are going hungry, had your kid killed in a war on the other side of the planet. Really, you need to decide who to vote for based on who has the best TV ads (like my wife) and who is the snappiest dresser (like my wife) and who has the best hair styles (like my wife). What is WRONG with you people?” — Monica’s rival’s husband.

It should be remembered that when Bill Clinton took office, there was a huge cash surplus built up on the Social Security trust fund in anticipation of the baby-boomer retirements. Clinton created his magical budget surplus by “borrowing” that extra cash and spending it as general revenue, replacing it with special Treasury Bonds which the government is now unable to redeem, adding to the misery of retirees who are being told their benefits must be cut.

The US Economy Runs Into A Problem If Oil Hits $75

US shale oil is now the marginal swing barrel in the new world oil order, and as Goldman Sachs warns (despite Larry Kudlow apparently knowing better), a decline in WTI to $75/bbl would start to significantly slow US shale growth (and thus employment, capex, and the entire US economy).

Obama was intent on harming Russia’s oil exports and made a deal with Saudi Arabia to increase production to crush oil prices. But, as has become the hallmark of decision-making by the White House, nobody thought this all the way through as to what harm it might bring to the US. And Saudi Arabia is laughing that US attempts at oil independence are being crushed under the anti-Russian agenda and US dependence on Saudi Arabia will increase!

France Is Slowly Reclaiming Its Old African Empire

The funeral of French Foreign Legion Sergeant Marcel Kalafut was held in May at Camp Raffalli, his regimental headquarters in Calvi, Corsica. The 26-year-old was killed when his vehicle hit a land mine during a covert operation in northern Mali.

France’s minister of defense, Jean-Yves Le Drian, paid tribute to the young noncommissioned officer, saying he had “died for France,” and posthumously awarded him France’s most valued medal, the Légion d’Honneur.

Kalafut was the eighth French soldier killed in combat in Mali since French forces intervened in January last year. The ninth, also a Legionnaire, was killed in July. At Kalafut’s funeral, Le Drian said 1,000 French soldiers would remain in Mali and 3,000 in the Sahel-Sahara zone “for as long as necessary.”

BEX ALERT – Blame the fall in homeownership on Generation X: Why did the homeownership rate fall so dramatically for those 35 to 44?

We’ve all heard about the broke Millennials living at home with mom and dad unable to move out into a very expensive rental. For years, we’ve been told that somehow this young group of people would represent some pent up demand to buy homes. This demand never materialized. Instead, you have tight inventory in certain markets being fought over by investors and those willing to pay current prices while stretching their budgets. Yet volume remains incredibly pathetic. The homeownership rate has fallen dramatically and some point the blame to the Millennials. But as it turns out, the big drop has come from those 35 to 44. Generation X overall has been a massive drag on the housing market. The young are simply not buying homes like they once did and many are opting into the rental market. So how big of a drag is Generation X on the housing market?

Another puff piece trying to find a scapegoat for the economic woes while avoiding a mention of the root cause of all of the problems, which are those private central banks issuing all of the public currency as a loan at interest, a system which by design produces more debt than money with which to pay that debt. But we dare not talk about that reality! So let’s drop the blame on the kiddies!

Cover-Up Alleged in Probe of USS Liberty

A former Navy attorney who helped lead the military investigation of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 American servicemen says former President Lyndon Johnson and his defense secretary, Robert McNamara, ordered that the inquiry conclude the incident was an accident.

In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy’s inquiry to “conclude that the attack was a case of ‘mistaken identity’ despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.”

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins.

 

 

Al Jazeera – The Day Israel Attacked America

In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

Later Israel apologised for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.

The Day Israel attacked America can be seen from Thursday, October 30, at the following times GMT: Thursday: 2000; Friday: 1200; Saturday: 0100; Sunday: 0600; Monday: 2000; Tuesday: 1200; Wednesday: 0100; Thursday: 0600.

Lawsuit Spotlights US Charities That Fund Israel’s Secret Nuclear Weapons Program

A federal lawsuit seeks immediate release of a closely held government report about how American branches of Israeli charitable and educational institutes fund secret nuclear weapons research and development programs.

An unclassified 1987 study conducted for the Department of Defense titled “Current Technology Issues in Israel” discovered Technion University technicians developing nuclear missile re-entry vehicles and working at the Dimona nuclear weapons production facility. Hebrew University computer scientists working at the Soreq nuclear facilities were “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs.” Israel’s Weizmann Institute “studied high energy physics and hydrodynamics needed for nuclear bomb design, and worked on lasers to enrich uranium, the most advanced method for making the material dropped on Hiroshima in 1945″ say sources attributed to the report cited in the lawsuit.

This obvious emergence of the Chinese player was precipitated by the Ukrainian crisis. Whilst it was in China’s interest to develop its emergence from under the radar, whilst the Russians kept their distance from an inevitably invasive China, whilst the Europeans also had to maintain the conditions for a smooth emergence of this mega-player, the Ukrainian crisis accelerated the change and caused the players to partly lose out. We have already noted that the Ukrainian crisis and the political sanctions pushed the Russians to sign the famous Russian-Chinese gas agreement on less advantageous terms than they had hoped. The Ukraine has lost out to the Russians in their negotiations with China on this agreement.

Man Charged With Murder After SWAT Officer Was Killed Serving No-Knock Search Warrant at His Home

A SWAT officer serving an early morning “no-knock” search warrant was killed after being shot in the head during the raid.

Officer Shaun Diamond, 45, succumbed to his injuries Wednesday in a Pasadena hospital. David Martinez, of San Gabriel, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder of an officer.

This is absurd. If it was a no-knock warrant, then David had no way of knowing the intruder he was defending his home from was an officer!

 

 

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

After engaging in out-of-area invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, and Syria and, again in Iraq, against the «Islamic State,» the «North Atlantic» military bloc has transformed itself from a Cold War defensive alliance into a global offensive axis of nations that acts with or without United Nations authorization.

Isolated computer to be hacked with only a cellphone at Denver cybersecurity conference

Security researchers at Ben Gurion University have found a way to infiltrate a closed network to lift data from an isolated computer using little more than a cellphone’s FM radio receiver.

To evade air-gap security measures, keylogging app Airhopper, as its known, uses radio frequencies to transmit data from a computer, all by exploiting the computer’s display.

“This is the first time that a mobile phone is considered in an attack model as the intended receiver of maliciously crafted radio signals emitted from the screen of the isolated computer,” according to a release by Ben Gurion University.

So, Israel’s university TEACHES computer hacking!

Gun Control Fact-Sheet 2004 / From Gun Owners Foundation

Guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year—or about 6,850 times a day.(1) This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives.(2)

Even anti-gun Clinton researchers concede that guns are used 1.5 million times annually for self-defense. According to the Clinton Justice Department, there are as many as 1.5 million cases of self-defense with a firearm every year. The National Institute of Justice published this figure in 1997 as part of “Guns in America”—a study which was authored by noted anti-gun criminologists Philip Cook and Jens Ludwig.(3)

Big Media Has Betrayed the People

In his farewell address to the American people in 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower delivered what turned out to be his most memorable public utterance, famously warning Americans about the perils of the growing “military-industrial complex.” He went on to say: “Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the … industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

 

 

Putin to Western elites: Play-time is over

In this speech, Putin abruptly changed the rules of the game. Previously, the game of international politics was played as follows: politicians made public pronouncements, for the sake of maintaining a pleasant fiction of national sovereignty, but they were strictly for show and had nothing to do with the substance of international politics; in the meantime, they engaged in secret back-room negotiations, in which the actual deals were hammered out. Previously, Putin tried to play this game, expecting only that Russia be treated as an equal. But these hopes have been dashed, and at this conference he declared the game to be over, explicitly violating Western taboo by speaking directly to the people over the heads of elite clans and political leaders.

The Russian blogger chipstone summarized the most salient points from Putin speech as follows:

I sincerely regret that we have no candidates with such qualities aiming for 2016 in the American political system.

 

 

The indigenous land rights ruling that could transform Canada

The unrest is palpable. In First Nations across Canada, word is spreading of a historic court ruling recognizing Indigenous land rights. And the murmurs are turning to action: an eviction notice issued to a railway company in British Columbia; a park occupied in Vancouver; lawsuits launched against the Enbridge tar sands pipeline; a government deal reconsidered by Ontario Algonquins; and sovereignty declared by the Atikamekw in Quebec.

These First Nations have been emboldened by this summer’s Supreme Court of Canada William decision, which recognized the aboriginal title of the Tsilhqot’in nation to 1,750 sq km of their land in central British Columbia – not outright ownership, but the right to use and manage the land and to reap its economic benefits.

The popular icon of a witch is an ugly old woman riding across the sky on her magic broomstick and wearing a pointed hat. But as with all mythologies there is an element of truth behind the image. Witches did ride brooms, after a fashion, the brooms were magic, in a way, and the pointed hat was the mildest of the punishments inflicted on them for their activities!

Things can occur at a previously unimagined speed, while taking all kinds of frightening and unexpected turns. It stands to reason that the further away one is from the epicenters, the better ones chances are.

SodaStream closes illegal settlement factory in response growing boycott campaign

Palestinian boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) activists today welcomed the news that SodaStream has announced it is to close its factory in the illegal Israeli settlement of Mishor Adumim following a high profile boycott campaign against the company.

“SodaStream’s announcement today shows that the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is increasingly capable of holding corporate criminals to account for their participation in Israeli apartheid and colonialism,” said Rafeef Ziadah, a spokesperson for the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC), the broad coalition of Palestinian civil society organisations that leads and supports the BDS movement.

“BDS campaign pressure has forced retailers across Europe and North America to drop SodaStream, and the company’s share price has tumbled in recent months as our movement has caused increasing reputational damage to the SodaStream brand,” she added.

Why It’s OK To Worry About Ebola, And What’s Truly Scary

The people who are trying to say stop worrying about Ebola in New York, stop worrying about Ebola at Newark airport, what they’re trying to do is lose the teachable moment. If they succeed in getting people to stop worrying, they will regret it, because there’s a lot to worry about it.

Calming us down shouldn’t be a goal. It would be different if people were panicking in the street.

But the evidence doesn’t say that say people are unreasonably, dangerously upset. They’re sometimes worried about the right things more than the experts are.

Israel’s Ynet reported this week “that representatives from Africa Israel (AI) and its construction subsidiary Danya Cebus, targets of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, say they will stop building Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, including in Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem”.

However it is unlikely that Lev Leviev, chairman and controlling shareholder of AI, took a sudden decision to adhere to a moral compass. Far from an ethical business man, having built his fortune in apartheid South Africa diamonds, this decision is likely to have come in fear of the economic repercussions and a loss of legitimacy in the international business sphere.

“In September and October, the external conditions have changed significantly: the price of oil sharply dropped amid several individual countries have imposed stricter sanctions on a large number of Russian companies. Under these conditions the ruble is weakening, and the introduction of the import ban on certain foodstuffs in August has led to further acceleration in consumer prices,” the Russian Central Bank (CBR) said in a press release Friday.

“Around 400 women between the ages of 18 and 25 have gone missing in Krasnoarmeisk where [Ukrainian forces] Dnepr-1 was based. The bodies of 286 women around Krasnoarmeisk who had been raped have been discovered,” Zakharchenko said at a meeting with students from Donetsk National Technical University.

UPDATE 2-Hungary’s Orban puts Internet tax on hold after huge protests

BUDAPEST, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban froze plans on Friday to impose a tax on Internet traffic, climbing down in the face of massive street protests and warnings from the European Union that the levy was a mistake.

Opponents of the tax, who said it would have hurt consumers already struggling with a faltering economy, described the U-turn as a major victory. But Orban’s announcement was unlikely to end discontent among liberal Hungarians who accuse him of being an autocrat and are frustrated there is no prospect of removing him until elections in 2018. Recent anti-tax rallies have been a catalyst for broader anti-government protests.

In the richest nation in the world, one in three kids live in poverty. Let that sink in.

 

 

Hungary has dropped its plan for an Internet tax. Tens of thousands of people had protested against the move.

Teacher Poses as Student and is Shocked by What She Discovers

Waking Times

Have you ever considered why so many grade-school students are stressed, bored or uninspired when it comes to learning? Perhaps they enjoy school, but it is often for reasons such as friendships and extracurricular activities, and rarely because of academics. Perhaps if teachers had a better understanding of the learning experience from the students’ perspectives, they might want to revisit how they approach teaching. One teacher, Alexis Wiggins, who works for a private American International School outside of the US, conducted an experiment that did just that – it put her in the role of a student as she shadowed two high-school students for two days. What she learned was shocking.

 

 

The Day Israel Attacked America

In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

BEX ALERT – The Republicans’ Profane Attack on the Sacred Right to Vote

There is a database housed in Arkansas with your name in it … that is, if you live in one of the 28 states participating in the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program. It’s one of the growing components of an aggressive drive across the U.S. by Republicans to stop many Americans from voting.

The Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program is not stopping people from voting. It is stopping people from voting more than once. Anyone opposed to the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program is clearly supporting election fraud and should be banned from public life.

WTO Says U.S. Consumers Don’t Need to Know Where Meat Comes From

This week, the World Trade Organization (WTO) finally issued a decision in the challenge made by Mexico and Canada to the U.S.’s country-of-origin (COOL) labeling rules for meat. And environmental and food safety groups are hopping mad, as WTO upheld the contention made by those countries, supported by multi0national meat packers, that the rules unfairly impede global trade.

“The meatpacking lobby has lost the COOL debate from the court of public opinion to the Court of Appeals to the halls of Congress so they are taking their complaint to the faceless unelected bureaucrats in Geneva,” said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. “When the meat cannot get its way here in America, it is trying to use the WTO to overturn the will of the American people.”

The End of Free Speech: FEC Democrats Move to Kill Political Dissent

Democrats on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) are planning to introduce new regulations regarding political content on the internet, in order to kill free speech and political dissent. The decision of intent, which was announced late Friday, came about after an anti-Obama video posted to Youtube raised the ire of Democrats who found themselves powerless to stifle it as it was not a paid-for political ad, which would have brought it under existing FEC regulations.

US beginning to ‘disengage’ from Israel: Analyst

A combination of factors is pushing the United States to “disengage” from Israel, a regime that will not last a month without US support, says an analyst.

Kind of like when an altar boy disengages from a priest, I guess!

Nato jets intercept Russian warplanes following ‘unusual level of air activity’

Nato aircraft have been scrambled to shadow Russian strategic bombers over the Atlantic and Black Sea and fighter planes over the Baltic in what the western alliance called an unusual burst of activity as tensions remain elevated because of the situation in Ukraine.

In all, Nato said, its jets intercepted four groups of Russian aircraft in about 24 hours since Tuesday and some were still on manoeuvres late on Wednesday afternoon.

“These sizeable Russian flights represent an unusual level of air activity over European air space,” the alliance said.

If I were Putin and knew the US was trying to start a war, I would probably call for some additional training.

 

 

Anti-quarantine nurse Hickox was trained as intelligence officer by the CDC

Nurse Kaci Hickox, who has made headlines over the last few days by refusing to quarantine herself after returning from the Ebola front lines in Africa, turns out to have been trained as an “intelligence officer” under a two-year CDC program modeled after the U.S. military.

As you can see from the document below, Hickox graduated from a two-year CDC intelligence officer training program in 2012. This is the same nurse whose LinkedIn page was recently scrubbed to hide her ties to the CDC, an agency that stands to benefit tremendously in both political power and budgets if an Ebola outbreak sweeps across America.

This is not the first time serious questions have been raised about CDC’s “Intelligence Officers”, who operate primarily as information warfare specialists, including attacks on those who question the safety and efficacy of vaccines!

Powder Keg: Cliven Bundy Supporters Openly Warn Feds To Stand Down In 3 Million Acre Land Grab

In today’s episode, Pete relives the original Bundy Ranch standoff, and he also conveys his belief that a 2nd Bundy Ranch Standoff will ensue if the federal government dares to take the 3 million acres they have recently proposed and published on their website. Santilli’s comments are important, especially as they relate to the U.S. Constitution. Article one, section 7 paragraph 17 of the U.S. Constitution specifically prohibits what the U.S. Government can and cannot own as far as land. Taking 3 million acres from the American people is outright unconstitutional, and Santilli tells Senator Harry Reid, the BLM, the DOJ and every other communist who has infiltrated the U.S. Government that we will not let them take the land from the people of the state of Nevada. Santilli openly calls for a 2nd Bundy Ranch Standoff in order to defend our constitutional rights as a people.

When Arming the Rebels Goes Wrong?

The rapid and violent rise of the Islamic State, or ISIS, has sparked growing calls for deeper U.S. involvement in the arming and training of rebel forces in Syria.
The trouble is, such efforts might not always work as advertised.

Earlier this month, The New York Times reported on a still-classified internal CIA review — commissioned during the Obama administration’s deliberations over its Syria policy — that concluded that many past attempts by the agency to arm foreign forces have had little effect on the long-term outcome of the conflict. As the Times reported, “They were even less effective … when the militias fought without any direct American support on the ground.”

Although the Times analysis did not detail specific examples from the CIA report, several of the agency’s failed attempts at foreign intervention are widely known.

 

 

Republican Campaign

Earlier this month, the National Republican Campaign Committee began running an ad across the state in an effort to link Ashford to Nikko Jenkins, a convicted killer who murdered four people last summer after getting released from prison for good behavior. Jenkins served half of his 21-year sentence for robbery and assault because of the state’s “Good Time Law,” which Ashford supported.

 

 

We Prep for Ebola Because of Irresponsible People Like Kacie Hickox

That nurse in Maine sure does love the spotlight.

After Kacie Hickox returned from Sierra Leone, where she was treating Ebola patients, she was outraged when she was put in isolation by the state of New Jersey. After railing about her civil rights, she was then transferred to her home in Maine, where she was asked to remain home for the remainder of the 21 day incubation period.

Well, you can’t tell Kacie Hickox what to do. No sir. She knows her rights.

Although she tried to portray herself as a saintly caregiver who was being victimized, today she showed herself to be anything but selfless.

She defied the quarantine and went out for a bike ride with her boyfriend, which was the equivalent of giving a great big middle finger salute to those who asked her to remain home.

Number of global billionaires has doubled since the financial crisis.

The number of billionaires has doubled since the start of the financial crisis, according to a major new report from anti-poverty campaigners.

According to Oxfam, the world’s rich are getting richer, leaving hundreds of millions of people facing a life “trapped in poverty” as global “inequality spirals out of control”.
The report found that the number of billionaires in the world has more than doubled to 1,646 since the financial crisis of 2009, and Oxfam says is evidence that the benefits of a return to economic growth are “not being shared with the vast majority”.

“I don’t think we have enough evidence to use that word,” Mulcair said at the end of an emotional party caucus meeting Wednesday, one week after Michael Zehaf Bibeau opened fire on a soldier and then on security guards just outside the government and Opposition caucus meeting rooms.

COLLATERAL DAMAGE OF THE BDS MOVEMENT

Originally I was going to headline this post A SMALL STEP FOR MAN, A GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND …. AN EVEN GREATER LEAP FOR THE BDS MOVEMENT.

BUT

I must say that when we call for a boycott of companies situated in the Occupied West Bank we are calling for a boycott of the occupation itself. It is not our intention to put these companies out of business, just to get them out of lands that do not belong to them or Israel.

SO

In reality, the workers of SodaStream are victims of Collateral Damage in our ongoing war against the occupation. The workers of the plant involved, both Israeli and Palestinian have our sincerest wishes that they will soon find suitable employment elsewhere … they were certainly not our target.

Payday loan brokers help themselves to UK savers’ accounts, customers outraged

Brokers linked to payday loan companies may be raiding the bank accounts of over 1 million Britons, with many being the poorest in society, the UK’s biggest banks have warned.

Natwest, one of the largest retail banking chains in Britain, said it was “inundated” with complaints from customers.

Victims claimed that brokerages, offering deals on payday loans – short term loans with very high fixed rates of interest – are extracting sums of £50 to £70 from savings accounts without informing customers first.

Sweden officially recognizes Palestinian state, Israel recalls ambassador

Sweden has recognized the occupied state of Palestine officially, according to its foreign ministry. The Scandinavian has become the first West-European EU state to recognize the territories. Israel has recalled its ambassador in Sweden in protest.

The news follows an earlier hint by Prime Minister Stefan Lovfen in his Social Democrat manifesto, during his inaugural address in October, that this would happen. The idea was quickly met with criticism from the United States and Israel.

“Our decision comes at a critical time because over the last year we have seen how the peace talks have stalled, how decisions over new settlements on occupied Palestinian land have complicated a two-state solution and how violence has returned to Gaza,” Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom told reporters.

“By making our decision we want to bring a new dynamic to the stalled peace process.”

FLASHBACK 2010 – WHO scandal exposed: Advisors received kickbacks from H1N1 vaccine manufacturers

A stunning new report reveals that top scientists who convinced the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare H1N1 a global pandemic held close financial ties to the drug companies that profited from the sale of those vaccines. This report, published in the British Medical Journal, exposes the hidden ties that drove WHO to declare a pandemic, resulting in billions of dollars in profits for vaccine manufacturers.

Several key advisors who urged WHO to declare a pandemic received direct financial compensation from the very same vaccine manufacturers who received a windfall of profits from the pandemic announcement. During all this, WHO refused to disclose any conflicts of interests between its top advisors and the drug companies who would financially benefit from its decisions.

Those Dancing Hypocrites on Invisible Wires of Compliance.

I’m guessing this Tuesday is Election Day. That should make this weekend significant, It is truly an experience for me to watch The Last Empire crumble into ruin. There are any number of factors which makes the occurrence memorable. Not the least of these occurrences is the level of maintained ignorance that attends it and without which, it couldn’t happen. In this atmosphere of ruin and devastation I see art beginning to mimic life. That is… if you can call these things art; all those zombie movies, which I don’t get the attraction for and the spate of apocalyptic films that have come out over recent decades. You can get a feel for what might likely come about by observing the awareness level of the generations and making comparative analysis of disparities between them in the areas where there are disparities. It is interesting to watch people’s attention gravitate to the lowest common denominator, once the option has been set into place, as an overlay upon more superior choices.

PFLP-GC steps up Lebanese border presence

A security source told The Daily Star that the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command has recently fortified its military posts over a 14-kilometer-stretch of the Lebanese border in the Bekaa Valley, in coordination with Hezbollah and Syrian military figures.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source said that the recent security measures were aimed at protecting border areas in the western and eastern Bekaa Valley from possible attacks by the Nusra Front, ISIS and the Free Syrian Army.

The Wrath of Draghi: First German Bank Hits Savers with Negative Interest Rate

Deutsche Skatbank, a division of VR-Bank Altenburger Land, which was founded in 1859, is not the biggest bank in Germany, but it’s the first bank to confirm what German savers have been dreading for a while: the wrath of Draghi.

Retail and business customers with over €500,000 on deposit as of November 1 will earn a “negative interest rate” of 0.25%. In less euphemistic terms, they have to pay0.25% per annum to the bank for the privilege of handing the bank their hard-earned money or their business cash.

“There will be no direct impact on your savings,” the ECB announced five months ago. “Only banks that deposit money in certain accounts at the ECB have to pay.” But it added ominously, “Commercial banks may of course choose to lower interest rates for savers.”

And that would be good for savers:

To those of you in the US who say, “That CANNOT possibly happen in the US”, please think again.

Have no more money in your checking account than is needed to pay your bills. Place all the rest of your money under your personal control. Think about getting small, untraceable amounts of gold and silver to add to your personal portfolio.

Inflation in the US has already catastrophically destroyed whatever you have saved; the suppression of gold and silver value will not continue forever.

The Russians are coming! UK media hypes up RAF interception of Latvian plane

Two Royal Air Force jets reportedly threatened to shoot down a Latvian cargo plane, rushing at supersonic speeds to intercept it, after the plane failed to respond to air traffic control over Kent in Southern England and sent authorities into panic mode.

“I am instructed by Her Majesty’s Government of the United Kingdom to warn you that, if you do not respond immediately to my orders, you will be shot down,” radioed one of the jets, according to an audio recording circulating in UK media.

The incident occurred at about 5pm local time after the Latvian Antonov An-26 aircraft failed to make contact with air traffic controllers.

 

 

20-Year CBS News Veteran, Sharyl Attkisson, Details Massive Censorship and Propaganda in Mainstream Media

Reporters on the ground aren’t necessarily ideological, Attkisson says, but the major network news decisions get made by a handful of New York execs who read the same papers and think the same thoughts.

Often they dream up stories beforehand and turn the reporters into “casting agents,” told “we need to find someone who will say . . .” that a given policy is good or bad. “We’re asked to create a reality that fits their New York image of what they believe,” she writes.

“Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.” — Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.

“News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising”. — former NBC news President Rubin Frank

Asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1880, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Sun, made this candid confession [it's worth noting that Swinton was called "The Dean of His Profession" by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]:

” There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.

If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. “

Overweight crash test dummies being developed in response to rising obesity levels in the United States

Car safety testing has come a long way since the days of dropping cadavers down unused elevator shafts in the 1930s.

That we enjoy greater peace of mind on the road — with fatal accidents in the US at historic lows — is largely due to the evolution of crash test dummies. Vehicle manufacturers must prove their safety with dummies before they can be legally sold in the US and Europe, and these unsung heroes have developed into extraordinarily sophisticated tools for collecting data and assessing risk.

 

 

Amazon-CIA $600 Million Deal Facing Scrutiny: ‘What’s the CIA Doing on Amazon’s Cloud?’

A billboard challenging Amazon to fully disclose the terms of its $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services for the Central Intelligence Agency has been unveiled at a busy intersection near Amazon’s Seattle headquarters.

The billboard’s launch — asking “the $600 million question: What’s the CIA Doing on Amazon’s Cloud?” — marks the escalation of a campaign by the online activist organizations RootsAction.org and ExposeFacts.org. The groups are calling for accountability from Amazon in an effort to inform the public of serious privacy implications of the Amazon-CIA collaboration. (ExposeFacts.org is a project of the Institute for Public Accuracy.)

Given that CIA and Amazon are swapping tongue kisses these days, it becomes understandable why Alexa, owned by Amazon, is rigging the rankings of independent media websites lower and pushing up rankings of pro-government websites.

Iran says foils bid to sabotage nuclear heavy-water tanks

Iran has foiled an attempt to sabotage tanks used for transporting heavy water, which is needed to run some nuclear reactors, and blames a “foreign country” for the incident, a senior official was quoted by local media as saying.

The Islamic Republic is at odds with the West over suspicions it is covertly using its declared civilian atomic energy programme to develop a nuclear arms capability. It denies this and has repeatedly accused certain Western states of trying to cripple the programme through acts of sabotage.

Official use only: Joe Biden’s cheap vacation sparks investigation

US Vice President Joe Biden and other White House officials are taking heat for allegedly using a federally-owned log cabin to take family vacations, despite the fact that it has been designated only for official use since 1992.

The incident revolves around a four-day trip the vice president took with his wife and 11 other members of his family in August. The Biden clan stayed in the four-bedroom Brinkerhoff Lodge, which is located at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. However, it doesn’t appear the family paid for the visit.

Family members accompanying US officials on trips are usually required to pay their own way and for any extra charges.

Remember that final scene from “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?”

Despite abundant evidence that officers showed a reckless disregard for Milton’s life, and opened fire without there being a direct threat the the lives of the officers, the U.S. Justice Department did not charge any of the officers responsible for the killing.

Two Years Later, No Charges After Police Kill Homeless Man in Barrage of 46 Shots

On a quiet Sunday in July 2012 in broad daylight, six police officers in Michigan repeatedly shot an African-American man struggling with homelessness and mental illness. While the killing of Milton Hall prompted local outrage and a federal investigation, the U.S. Department of Justice announced in February that it failed to find “sufficient evidence of willful misconduct” to prosecute the policemen.

CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola

Thousands attended the 26 October funeral of Orwa Hammad, the 14-year-old Palestinian-American boy who was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank village of Silwad two days earlier.

Israeli occupation forces claimed Orwa had been about to throw a molotov cocktail, a justification frequently given for the killings of children.

Local residents told The New York Times that “Palestinians throwing stones clashed with Israeli soldiers in the village after Friday Prayer, but that Orwa was apparently killed hours later.”

On the evening of October 29, 1956 Israeli troops shot and killed 49 unarmed Palestinian civilians in the village of Kafr Qasem, 20 km east of Tel Aviv near the green line.

Now the village has a population of 18,100 Palestinians, some of whom marched today alongside neighboring Arab villages to commemorate those killed 1956. People marched from the village center to the memorial site and placed candles for those killed; village leaders made speeches in commemoration.

It’s Rarely About The Environment Anymore

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Back in 1970, when I got involved in the first Earth Day and nascent environmental movement, we had real pollution problems.

But over time, new laws, regulations, attitudes and technologies cleaned up our air, water and sloppy industry practices. By contrast, today’s battles are rarely about the environment.

As Ron Arnold and I detail in our new book, “Cracking Big Green: To save the world from the save-the-Earth money machine” ( tiny.cc/eehiox ) , today’s eco-battles pit a $13.4-billion-per-year U.S. environmentalist industry against the reliable, affordable, 82% fossil fuel energy that makes our jobs, living standards, health, welfare and environmental quality possible.

 

 

Israelis kill Americans with impunity

Like 18-year-old Furkan Dogan, who was murdered aboard the Mavi Marmara, and 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, who was deliberately crushed beneath an Israeli bulldozer, the latest victim – 14-year-old Orwa Hammad – was martyred trying to stop the genocide in Occupied Palestine.

Unlike the 64,937 US soldiers who died useless and pointless deaths in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, these three brave young people gave their lives for a just and urgent cause. Wherever human beings care about justice, the young American heroes will be remembered. Yet the US mainstream media, which has been stealthily infiltrated by Zionists to the point that it is now a propaganda instrument of the Israeli government, works overtime to cover up the heinous murder of young Americans by Zionist occupation forces.

 

 

“I don’t know what the big deal is”: three in four NJ sheriffs double-dip millions via pension loophole

Three-fourths of New Jersey’s county sheriffs are two-timing taxpayers and state pension funds.

An investigation by New Jersey Watchdog and CBS 3 Philadelphia, found that 16 of the state’s 21 sheriffs are double-dippers. They receive pensions as law enforcement retirees in addition to their six-figure public salaries.

The sheriffs’ payrolls include 33 undersheriffs who also double-dip. Overall, those 49 officials rake in $9.1 million a year from public coffers — $3.8 million in pension pay plus $5.3 million in salaries from post-retirement public jobs. (Click here for the full list.)

In most of the cases, the registrar’s office found that data-entry errors were to blame for ballots attributed to dead voters. But Registrar Michael Vu sent the two most troubling cases to Dumanis for further investigation.

UPDATE 1-Russia may limit transit from Belarus, Ukraine over banned food – RIA

Oct 30 (Reuters) – Russia may limit food transit from Belarus and Ukraine to Kazakhstan because of attempts by the countries to supply banned food to Russia, the head of Russia’s veterinary and phytosanitary service (VPSS) was quoted as saying on Thursday.

In early August, Russia banned imports of fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, milk and dairy from the European Union and some other countries worth about $9 billion in retaliation for Western sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine.

 

 

US-Israel crisis reactions: Obama official calls Netanyahu coward, chickenshit

United States Israel relations have gone downhill fast. At the beginning of the month, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a friendly meeting at the White House, but in four weeks, the fragile personal relationship has all collapsed. Now a crisis and break between the two countries is possible after a senior Obama Administration official resorted to school yard name-calling, where he called the Israeli prime minister “chickenshit” and a “coward” which was quoted in the Atlantic by journalist Jeffrey Goldberg in his entitled “The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here” and published Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014. Greenberg concluded that there is now a “full-blown crisis” between the two supposed and long-time allies.

Closure of Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa ‘declaration of war': Abbas

“We hold the Israeli government responsible for this dangerous escalation in Jerusalem that has reached its peak through the closure of the Al-Aqsa mosque this morning,” he told AFP.

The compound houses Islam’s third holiest site, but is also the most sacred spot for Jews who refer to it as the Temple Mount because it once housed two Jewish temples.

AP IMPACT: US Health Care Unprepared for Ebola

The U.S. health care apparatus is so unprepared and short on resources to deal with the deadly Ebola virus that even small clusters of cases could overwhelm parts of the system, according to an Associated Press review of readiness at hospitals and other components of the emergency medical network.

Experts broadly agree that a widespread nationwide outbreak is extremely unlikely, but they also concur that it is impossible to predict with certainty, since previous Ebola epidemics have been confined to remote areas of Africa. And Ebola is not the only possible danger that causes concern; experts say other deadly infectious diseases — ranging from airborne viruses such as SARS, to an unforeseen new strain of the flu, to more exotic plagues like Lassa fever — could crash the health care system.

EU chief scientist a dangerous imbecile, says renown risk expert Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The EU’s controversial chief scientist, Anne Glover, has been called a dangerous imbecile by the Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University, Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Taleb was responding on Twitter to the fact that Glover argues for abandoning the Precautionary Principle in relation to GM crops.

The reason for the Precautionary Principle is, of course, to make sure that if things go wrong, they don’t go catastrophically wrong – and that, Taleb has pointed out, is precisely the danger with GM crops, as they pose systemic risks to ecologies and human health. Indeed, Taleb, who famously predicted the global economic crash, says that even “calling the GMO approach ‘scientific’ betrays a very poor – indeed warped – understanding of probabilistic payoffs and risk management.”

Benjamin Netanyahu is ‘a chickens**t prime minister’ and ‘coward’, says US official

He said: “The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat. He’s not [Yitzhak] Rabin, he’s not [Ariel] Sharon, he’s certainly no [Menachem] Begin. He’s got no guts.”

IRS Probe Continues

Netanyahu insists he is ‘under attack for defending Israel’ after remarks from US official

Quotes from senior Obama administration figures damn Israeli prime minister as ‘chickenshit’ over stance on settlements and peace with Palestinians

US relations with Israel have plunged to new depths of bitterness and hostility as senior officials in the Obama administration decried Binyamin Netanyahu as a “chickenshit prime minister”, “coward” and a man more interested in his own political survival than peace.

The furious assessment delivered in anonymous but no-holds barred comments in an interview with the American journalist Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic underline a state of anger with Netanyahu that is characterised as “red hot”.

The remarks are particularly telling in having been made to Goldberg, a Washington insider who has interviewed both Obama and Netanyahu, and who warned US-Israeli relations were in a “full-blown crisis” that could only get worse after the midterm elections.

Egon von Greyerz – Economic Reset Will Be Dramatic

Egon von Greyerz, Founder of Matterhorn Asset Management, says, “You can’t have governments borrow more than ever and have interest rates at zero. You can only do that temporarily because you have governments printing money and artificially holding interest rates down. That will not last either. So, the reset will be dramatic. It won’t happen overnight, but there will be events that trigger short term pitfalls, but this is a long term thing.”

Printing money to support the stock market and the bond market will work for a while, but Greyerz warns, “The ammunition that they have will, of course, be so devalued that nobody will want it. So, any support they try to muster in the future will have no effect. This is why markets are going to be in a terrible state in the next few years. It will be all the bubbles that have been created over a very long period.”

 

 

More “War on Terror” Abuses – Spying Powers Are Used for Terrorism Only 0.5% of the Time

The Patriot Act continues to wreak its havoc on civil liberties. Section 213 was included in the Patriot Act over the protests of privacy advocates and granted law enforcement the power to conduct a search while delaying notice to the suspect of the search. Known as a “sneak and peek” warrant, law enforcement was adamant Section 213 was needed to protect against terrorism. But the latest government report detailing the numbers of “sneak and peek” warrants reveals that out of a total of over 11,000 sneak and peek requests, only 51 were used for terrorism. Yet again, terrorism concerns appear to be trampling our civil liberties.

 

 

Total War Over The Petrodollar

The conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Total SA’s chief executive, Christophe de Margerie, started the second the news broke of his death. Under mysterious circumstances in Moscow, his private jet collided with a snowplow just after midnight. De Margerie was the CEO of Total, France’s largest oil company.

He’d just attended a private meeting with Russian Prime Minister Medvedev, at a time when the West’s relationship with Russia is fraught, to say the least.

One has better odds of being struck by lightning at an airport then a snow plow, or any other ground support vehicles hitting a plane and killing all inside the plane, in my opinion. And I say that as someone who’s familiar with airports, having worked at Vancouver International Airport when I was in university; I was the one who would bring the plane into its parking bay.

US beginning to ‘disengage’ from Israel: Analyst

A combination of factors is pushing the United States to “disengage” from Israel, a regime that will not last a month without US support, says an analyst.

“Times are changing for Israel, they spend a lot of money to manipulate public opinion, all of Hollywood and mass media is Jewish-controlled (and) Zionist-controlled, and people realize the lies that are being told to them on their Nightly News on a daily basis,” he said.

“But the American people can see through this. The American people, particularly at university level, are smart (and) well-educated and they have this implicit sense of fairness,” he added.
“All of this combined” Harris said, “is adding up to what is going to be a perfect storm for Israel where the people of the US are going to reject Israel, and that is the process that we are beginning to see the early stages of.”

snip: In a sane Western society, Putin’s statements would have been reproduced in full and discussions organized with remarks from experts such as Stephen F. Cohen.

But, of course, nothing like this is possible in a country whose rulers claim that it is the “exceptional” and “indispensable” country with an extra-legal right to hegemony over the world. As far as Washington and its prostitute media, named “presstitutes” by the trends specialist Gerald Celente, are concerned, no country counts except Washington. “You are with us or against us,” which means “you are our vassals or our enemies.” This means that Washington has declared Russia, China, India, Brazil and other parts of South America, Iran, and South Africa to be enemies.

Australian Veterans Ripped Off Yet Again

From: terrydavies
Sent: Thursday, 30 October 2014 9:30 AM
Subject:  Social Services and Other Legislation Amendment (2014 Budget Measures No. 6) Bill 2014

Forwarded (from Blue)

FYI (if not read before )

TERRY DAVIES

Dear Members,

The above bill’s debate in the Senate was delayed but is on the programme for today, Thursday 30 October 2014.

The bill, if passed by the Senate will:

  • Pause indexation on asset free areas for the Service and War Widows’ pensions as well as the Income Support Payment.

This, combined with the Government’s intention to downgrade the indexation on these pensions and reduce deeming thresholds, will leave pensioners, over time, substantially worse off.

  • Include tax-free superannuation income (DFRB, DFRDB, MSBS), previously not included,  in the assessment of income for qualification for the seniors health car.

And, the government is launching several more Senate attacks on disabled veterans and war widows in the coming weeks and months.

We shall keep you informed of the voting and warn you when further attacks are scheduled.

Tim McCombe
National President

UPDATED 30 0ct 2014

The facts are that in Australia today, no Defence Force member, no Veteran, no ex Service member, no War Widow and none of their kids can rely on the Department of Veterans Affairs to keep their confidential medical documents safe and secure, away from prying public eyes. This is the situation as you read this. The buck stops with DVA Minister Senator Ronaldson. This DVA Minister is so elitist, so arrogant and so irresponsible that he refuses to answer correspondence on the leaks of medical documents and refuses to plug the holes. To allow such a situation to continue while sending more young Australians off to war is political treachery and treason.

~~~~

The Australian government has plenty of money for war, but says it doesn’t have enough money for fair war Veterans pensions.

 

The official estimate of the cost of the new Iraq war to Australian taxpayers is currently $500 million a year, and this will increase as time goes by. PM Abbott is now talking about deploying Australian combat ground Troops to Iraq. This will cost much, much more. Additionally, the government can find an additional $630 mil to upgrade our security organisations at home, which have been keeping the country safe for years on the budget they have as it is without any major increase.

 

Additionally the government intends to give millionaires $50,000 to have a baby and will be spending hundreds of millions extra for the Antarctic station.

 

When it comes to balancing the budget the government is forcing the small end of town to cop the bill and is leaving the big end of town alone.

During Question Time on Wed 1 Oct 2014 in the Australian House of LiaRepresentatives, PM Tony Abbott once again lied in response to a question about why the government plans to reduce war Veterans pensions from 2017. The government plans to change the method of indexation of war Veterans pensions from 2017 onwards which will see the dollar value and purchasing power of Veterans pensions reduce over time, yet Abbott denied this is true last Wednesday, and during his denial he once again distorted the facts and lied as he ran for cover while trying to defend this treachery. On top of this Abbott compared war Veterans pensions to the Family Tax Benefit when he said if it was good enough for the FTB to be indexed to the CPI alone, then it was good for all social security recipients. Abbott consistently likens war Veteran pensions, and the pensions of Defence Force members, war widows, ex service member and their kids to social security pensions. Veterans pensioners under Veteran Law are NOT social security recipients. Veterans are covered under special legislation which recognises their unique service to the Nation, and have been so recognised since 1916.

FACT……….During the Constitutional Australian crisis in~late 1975, and during the chaotic political events in Australia of late 1974 and all of 1975, I was serving in the Australian Army. The fact is that during this time the Australian Army entered the political situation. I witnessed Liberal politicians engaging in political lobbying on Australian Defence Force bases during this time. Another fact is that members of the Defence Force [Army ] of the time were being sought out to engage in a military coup. This coup intention was led by some very senior officers and much of the support was elicited from the then CMF and now ARES.

 

As extraordinary as this seems to us today, it is fact, and there are other members of the Veterans List and other Veterans I know in Australia who will attest to this truth.

 

I publicly stood against the Army becoming involved in the political situation then, and would not hesitate to do so again. Naturally I suffered career and service wise to take my stand but there is a time to make a stand, no matter the personal cost. I was not taking my stand on behalf of the Labor Party, but on behalf of the Australian Constitution………..KT

Whitlam and Australia’s forgotten coup

John Pilger marks the death of former Australian prime minister Gough Whitlam with the one story missing from the ‘tributes’ to a man whose extraordinary political demise is one of America’s dirtiest secrets.

Across the political and media elite in Australia, a silence has descended on the memory of the great, reforming prime minister Gough Whitlam, who has died. His achievements are recognized, if grudgingly, his mistakes noted in false sorrow. But a critical reason for his extraordinary political demise will, they hope, be buried with him.

The Ebola Story Doesn’t Smell Right — Paul Craig Roberts

snip: Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.

Stories that don’t make sense and that are not explained naturally arouse suspicions, such as: Are US soldiers being used to test ebola vaccines and cures, or more darkly are they being used to bring more ebola back to the US?

Sergey Lavrov: The elections are being monitored by observers, including OSCE observers, and there are Russian representatives among them. This time, Russia’s Federal Assembly did not send a separate observer team to the elections, so we will wait for the conclusions of the international OSCE team.

Israel To Help California Combat Worst Drought In History Following Losses Of $2.2 Billion

The Israelis know a thing or two when it comes to managing dry arid lands, and making them flourish, even when the rains don’t fall “in their time.”

So when it came to getting some help for the poor farmers of California, who have suffered massive financial losses as a result of the dry weather, California Governor Jerry Brown contacted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the two men signed a strategic cooperation agreement earlier this year as part of which Israel, a world leader in the field of water, would help out the arid state.

CIA Mouthpiece Lets Slip On Russian ‘Aggression’

For months now, Western mass media have been in lockstep with the US State Department and the NATO military alliance, promulgating claims of Russian aggression in Ukraine and towards Europe generally. The mantra-like repetition of these claims, with scant substantiation, resembles the Big Lie technique of Third Reich master propagandist Josef Goebbels. Told often and brazenly enough, the claims acquire normalcy as «accepted facts».

Western news media, from the BBC to the New York Times, uncritically peddle NATO and Washington claims that Moscow has «annexed» Crimea and infiltrated troops into eastern Ukraine to destabilize the pro-Western «government» in Kiev. Last month at the NATO summit in Wales, outgoing secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen asserted: «So we continue to call on Russia to pull back its troops from Ukrainian borders, [and] to stop the flow of weapons and fighters into Ukraine».

Definition of Medical Billing Fraud

Medical billing fraud is a big problem in the United States. It costs the American health care industry billions of dollars each year. The trickle-down effect is the insurer passing down the higher costs to the insured through elevated premiums and deductibles. This type of fraud, like many others, can be difficult to prove

Fraud has become the standard mode of business in the United States!

 

 

Michael Scheuer: New U.S. Invasion Of Iraq Is Exactly What ISIS Wants

 

 

I have two cousins living in the US. One of them has explained to me that if he and his wife were involved in a serious motor vehicle accident, the medical costs to them, on Green Cards, would be so high they would have to sell their home to pay the medical bills………..KT

Always (Always!) Double-Check Your Medical Bills

This past November, my wife had to see a doctor at our local Urgent Care. Unfortunately, when the bill showed up the claim had been denied. The reason? Out of network. The problem? It wasn’t out of network! It’s supposed to be a $20 co-pay with the rest going to insurance. So… I called the Urgent Care billing office on December 15th. They confirmed that it should’ve been covered, and promised to re-submit the claim. Fast forward to this week…

We just got another bill from Urgent Care. Same deal — they want the full balance. This time, however, it seems that our insurance company decided to split the difference and apply it to our deductible instead of flat-out denying the claim, or paying it like they’re supposed to. When I called the Urgent Care billing office, they weren’t sure what went wrong, but promised to re-file the claim. Again.

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it.

“My father planted those trees, seed by seed, and I toiled over the land,” he sighs, pointing to one section of his land, now farmed by settlers.

Hugger-in-Chief

Nina Pham, the first person to be infected with Ebola within the United States, had just been declared disease-free and discharged from the National Institutes of Health. Obama is a rational, science-friendly guy, so he knew she wasn’t any danger to him. It didn’t take courage to hug her.

And yet, another modern president failed a similar test. Facing the greatest public health crisis of his administration, Ronald Reagan was not heroic. He was a dithering coward.

Pure political bovine excrement. Obama hugs a healthy woman and Slate declares him morally superior to Ronald Reagan on that one point alone. Given how quickly Nina went from “got Ebola” to “Ebola free”, especially in light of research papers saying recovered people can still pass along the disease for weeks after they recover, I am starting to wonder if Nina ever really had it to start with, or is just another “Wag the Ebola” hoax to keep us all flooding the shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season and make sure we show up at the voting booths next week. Because has I been part of the President’s protective detail, under no circumstances would I have allowed him in the same room with Nine, let alone a hug for the cameras.

Could Allen Stanford go free? Convicted fraudster appeals

Jailed financier R. Allen Stanford, convicted in 2012 of running a massive global Ponzi scheme that rivals the Madoff scandal, says he is the victim of an illegal prosecution, and “the clearest of assaults on the U.S. Constitution.”

The comments come in Stanford’s formal appeal of his conviction, filed in federal court on Wednesday. Stanford wrote the appeal himself at the prison in Florida where he is serving a 110-year sentence. Having fired the last of a string of court-appointed attorneys, and with no funds to hire a replacement, he is representing himself even though he has no legal background. He has also asked to argue his case in person before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, a task normally handled by experienced attorneys.

The Red Cross’ Secret Disaster

Americans did what they so often do after disasters. They sent hundreds of millions of dollars to the Red Cross, confident their money would ease the suffering left behind by Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Isaac. They believed the charity was up to the job.

They were wrong.

The Red Cross botched key elements of its mission after Sandy and Isaac, leaving behind a trail of unmet needs and acrimony, according to an investigation by ProPublica and NPR. The charity’s shortcomings were detailed in confidential reports and internal emails, as well as accounts from current and former disaster relief specialists.

What’s more, Red Cross officials at national headquarters in Washington, D.C. compounded the charity’s inability to provide relief by “diverting assets for public relations purposes,” as one internal report puts it. Distribution of relief supplies, the report said, was “politically driven.”

The Racist Concept of Israel

Israeli economics minister Naftali Bennett has claimed of Binyamin Netanyahu that “The prime minister is not a private person but the leader of the Jewish state and the whole Jewish world.” Really? Netanyahu is the leader of all the Jews in London, or California, or Ethiopia, who may never have set foot in his state?

This extraordinary remark by Bennett lays bare the fundamental flaw in the very concept of Israel. It is not a modern state, defined as a territory and comprising all the various citizens of whatever descent who live within it. It is rather a vicious racist construct, defined absolutely by race, refusing territorial limits, and with an aggressive theocratic overlay that claims tribal superiority over the entire rest of the world.

While it is estimated that expenditures to treat the original Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, were approximately $100,000 an hour (though he passed anyway), it looks like insurance companies won’t be footing the bill.

Wilson is looking to avoid the media and the public—he has not been seen since August 9—but his absence is starting to impact the job he left behind. It’s now being reported that a total of six criminal cases have been dismissed, because Wilson, as the arresting officer, isn’t showing up to court to testify.

HTML5 reaches ‘recommendation’ status

The World Wide Web Consortium today has elevated the HTML5 specification to ‘recommendation’ status, giving it the group’s highest level of endorsement, which is akin to becoming a standard.

But Jeff Jaffe, CEO of the W3C, was quick to point out that work on the Web is far from complete.

HTML5 is a critical piece in terms of importance to the next generation of Web technology in general, according to Jaffe. “I think back to what the Web originally was, which was accessing static documents from Web pages. Today, it’s what we call the Open Web Platform for building distributed applications, characterized by rich media – video, audio and graphics – natively available in browsers,” he said.

I experimented with HTML5 in writing Claire’s music website and the overall portal to our online “empire.” The problem I ran into is that various smart phones and tablets, although claiming to support HTML5, did not actually support the full specifications, only enough HTML5 to be able to advertise they supported HTML5, and in many cases the pages would not display correctly.

 

 

GOP-led Purge Threat to 3.5 Million Voters

Election officials in 27 states, most of them Republicans, have launched a program that threatens a massive purge of voter rolls, especially targeting minority voters.

Al Jazeera America has obtained 2.1 million names from the target lists, kept confidential until now. Experts reviewing the lists conclude it is suspiciously over-weighted with Black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters.

The targeted voters have been tagged as “potential duplicate voters,” suspected of voting twice in the same election, in two different states, a felony crime punishable by 2-10 years in prison.

Let us be honest. If these voters are registered in multiple states, then at least one of those registrations needs to be erased.

Palestine must recognize Jewish Israel for peace: Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says no peace agreement will be achieved with the Palestinians unless they recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

“A peace treaty will be possible with the following formula: A demilitarized Palestinian state that will recognize Israel,” Netanyahu said in a speech at the opening of the winter session of the Knesset on Monday.

He also claimed that Israel has the right to declare Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

These are all non-starters for Palestine, especially since Israel has no official borders and Palestine cannot know what they are agreeing to.

A significant number of voters who were not citizens cast illegal ballots in U.S. elections and the possibility exists that those unlawful ballots helped President Barack Obama to win the election in 2008, according to two public-interest organizations, one of which is located on the campus of the left-leaning Harvard University campus. While the study was originally aimed at dispelling claims of significant voter fraud, it surprisingly confirms that elections are in some cases being stolen.

Nurse Kaci Hickox says she won’t obey Maine’s Ebola quarantine: I won’t be ‘bullied by politicians’

“I don’t plan on sticking to the guidelines. I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me, even though I am in perfectly good health and feeling strong and have been this entire time completely symptom free,” said Hickox, who wouldn’t emerge from Maine’s 21-day voluntary quarantine until Nov. 10.

“I truly believe this policy is not scientifically nor constitutionally just, and so I’m not going to sit around and be bullied around by politicians and be forced to stay in my home when I am not a risk to the American public.”

They are still playing politics with Ebola. Hickox is an Obama supporter and linked to CDC, which also opposes the quaranteens. When Cliven Bundy says he won’t allow the government to act unconstitutionally he is crushed, but Hickox is being presented as some kind or heroine!

Civil Forfeiture Out of Control: Government Robs Restaurant Owner for $33,000

For decades, Americans used to be able to joke about the corrupt nature of police in other countries. The law enforcement in places like Mexico became notorious for their highway extortion antics, especially towards tourists. Countries like Russia are so bad that every driver has to keep a dash cam in the car so they can challenge the police in court. It’s almost become a standard amenity in most vehicle, like having a cigarette lighter or a radio.

America however, has nothing to laugh about anymore. We have our own form of highway extortion, known as civil forfeiture. I’d consider even more insulting than what people face in other countries, because at least you’re buying yourself out of a nonexistent crime. They’re very up front about it. “We want your money or we’re going to charge with something”. At least those police kiss you before they do “you know what” to you.

Pro Palestinian protestors continue blockade of Israeli cargo ship in Oakland

A crowd of pro-Palestinian protesters rallied last Sunday in West Oakland as part of continued efforts to deter the unloading of an Israel-based shipping line.

Participants at Block the Boat, the blockade event, initially prepared for the arrival of Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd., a major Israeli cargo company, at 5 a.m. Saturday. When the ship delayed its destination at the Port of Oakland, the organizers made a last minute call for supporters to rally at West Oakland BART station to keep discouraging the ship’s arrival.

Hungary Rocked by Huge Protest over Controversial Internet Tax

Tens of thousands of Hungarians flocked to the streets of the capital Budapest to protest plans of the government to levy the Internet.

Demonstrations were held on Tuesday evening despite the cabinet’s assurances only Internet providers will be charged, since critics, and the opposition as well, argue the move would hurt Hungary’s digital economy and also affect household consumers by raising Internet bills.

About 35 000 to 40 000 people gathered in downtown Budapest according to Hungarian media outlets cited by Germany’s Zeit, just two days after a smaller demo was held Sunday.

 

 

Truthers as Terrorists: Who are the terrorists today?

A Canadian reporter has introduced a new phrase, “terrorist truthers”, as the initial stage in creating a new semantic club to use against critics of government ops and of false flag attacks.

The reporter, Brian Lilley, has used the occasion of the alleged attack on the Canadian Parliament–almost certainly itself an arranged event–to assail those who do not condemn it as “terrorism”.

While that sounds like typical politics, where right-wingers are eager to politicize such events and left-wingers more cautious and hesitant, a bit more appears to be going on here than that.

Joshua Blakeney, for example, has observed that this event appears tailor-made to be used as a justification to silence critics of Israel. And it also looks as though the phrase, once introduced, will then gradually be extended in meaning to include 9/11 Truthers and 7/7 Truthers, as David Cameron, the UK PM, recently proposed.

3 Simple Ways to Block the Damaging Effects of Mainstream Media

Waking Times

Life is one huge psychological journey. This is what I believe. You are what you think you are. You control your journey and how much you actually enjoy it. You control how happy (or for that matter how sad and miserable) you will be because you control your own thoughts. Yes, you make decisions everyday on what thoughts you will allow into you mind. You also make decisions about how you will approach things in your life including new information. The choice of personal attitude toward things, preconceived notions, and good or bad assumptions about the world around us is all within our reach and control. For this reason I want to discuss a bit about how your mind should operate when you come across mainstream media news.

The Creeping Horror of Jeb vs. Hillary in 2016

Maybe it is all just scare tactics and bad dreams.

Behold the ascent of America’s nightmare candidates, perhaps to make us grateful for the occasional half-honest politicians we are given. All signs are pointing to the idea that the establishment has selected… Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton as our presidential candidates for 2016.

Shudder the thought, but it seems almost inevitable. Yikes.

Watch our video:

Not only did we call this can of nightmare juice a long time ago, but we have foreseen the ‘surprised’ and ‘reluctant’ announcement of their candidacy coming, too. After all, it is historical: Julius Caesar, the infamous emperor who transformed Rome from a republic to a dictatorship, is portrayed by Shakespeare as refusing the crown three times before taking power.

When salaries become public, city managers’ pay drops 8% and their quit rate increases 75%

In the era of big data, transparency has become a popular policy tool for addressing potential problems. But publicly disclosing personal information — such as government officials’ income — may result in unintended consequences.
Using California as a case study, a researcher from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs shows that city managers — typically the highest-paid city employees — saw an 8 percent reduction in pay after their salaries were disclosed to the public. These cuts also triggered a 75 percent increase in the quit rate among city managers.

 

 

Less than 1% of Patriot Act’s “Sneak and Peek” Delayed Notice Warrants are Used against Terrorism

The Patriot Act continues to wreak its havoc on civil liberties. Section 213 was included in the Patriot Act over the protests of privacy advocates and granted law enforcement the power to conduct a search while delaying notice to the suspect of the search. Known as a “sneak and peek” warrant, law enforcement was adamant Section 213 was needed to protect against terrorism. But the latest government report detailing the numbers of “sneak and peek” warrants reveals that out of a total of over 11,000 sneak and peek requests, only 51 were used for terrorism. Yet again, terrorism concerns appear to be trampling our civil liberties.

 

 

Broccoli-Sprout Compound May Improve Symptoms of Autism

no money in natural cures – quick, outlaw broccoli!

snip:
Other research has shown that broccoli can be helpful in the prevention of:
Heart disease
UV radiation damage to your skin when applied topically
Osteoarthritis
Allergies
Diabetes

The sulforaphane from broccoli plays a role in activating more than 200 different genes, which accounts for its varied effects. Fortunately, you don’t have to consume vast volumes of broccoli to reap its benefits. In one study, just four servings of broccoli—about 10 broccoli spears—per week was found to protect men from prostate cancer.

The great game….more exposed.

WASHINGTON — In the decades after World War II, the C.I.A. and other United States agencies employed at least a thousand Nazis as Cold War spies and informants and, as recently as the 1990s, concealed the government’s ties to some still living in America, newly disclosed records and interviews show.

At the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, law enforcement and intelligence leaders like J. Edgar Hoover at the F.B.I. and Allen Dulles at the C.I.A. aggressively recruited onetime Nazis of all ranks as secret, anti-Soviet “assets,” declassified records show. They believed the ex-Nazis’ intelligence value against the Russians outweighed what one official called “moral lapses” in their service to the Third Reich.

 

 

The Special Interest Problem

Like those with a strong addiction, these politicians seem unable to free themselves from the monkey on their back.

If the politician defies the lobby making the offer (a rare event but not unheard of), that special interest will throw its support to the defiant politician’s electoral opponent. The result is that most politicians are in lockstep with the demands of multiple powerful special interests.

If there is a way out of this dilemma it must come from the general public. The long-standing dissatisfaction with politicians, especially on the national level, must be channeled into a popular campaign to free the legislators and policy makers from the influence of narrow interests.

America’s great terrorist mystery: When our allies and enemies engage in the same “evil”

It’s really confusing, these days, to understand who is or is not a terrorist.

Sure, it seems easy. Al-Qaida and the Islamic State (ISIL) — regardless of what relationship we believe the two groups have — are terrorist groups, inflicting gruesome casualties on civilians. Both are dangerous precisely because in well-trained small groups, they have the ability to inflict massive casualties.

But many of the characteristics the press uses to demonize ISIL, most notably its practice of beheading people it executes, but also its ruthless policing of radical Islam, are also true of a chief American ally in the region, Saudi Arabia. While the Saudi beheadings might be excused as the Kingdom’s preferred way of executing convicted criminals (arguably, it’s as humane, though more spectacular, as the current American practice of carrying out death penalties using a cocktail of Do It Yourself chemicals that may take hours to work), they are executing people for sorcery and criticizing the regime, crimes that undermine the claim that such executions serve anything called justice.

 

 

A NEW ISRAELI PIN-UP CALENDAR TO DIE FOR ~~ LITERALLY

Just a couple of months after the Gaza war, Israel has found a new way “to show the world the beauty of Israel and its people” — via the power of a pin-up calendar featuring real IDF soldiers.

Or, as the creators of the MTKL Israeli Army Women Calendar like to call them, “the chosen amongst the chosen people.”

These chosen women, brought together by two former (male) soldiers who “scoured the ranks of the powerful Israeli army,” would like you to donate $25 to their Indiegogo campaign so that they can not only ship you this calendar, but also create a whole line of clothing and accessories that will blend “the best of military and street into must-have urban fashion.”

COURTESY www.whatreallyhappened.com

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Our high respect for a well read person is praise enough for literature.” — T.S. Eliot

The facts are that in Australia today, no Defence Force member, no Veteran, no ex Service member, no War Widow and none of their kids can rely on the Department of Veterans Affairs to keep their confidential medical documents safe and secure, away from prying public eyes. This is the situation as you read this. The buck stops with DVA Minister Senator Ronaldson. This DVA Minister is so elitist, so arrogant and so irresponsible that he refuses to answer correspondence on the leaks of medical documents and refuses to plug the holes. To allow such a situation to continue while sending more young Australians off to war is political treachery and treason.

~~~~

The Australian government has plenty of money for war, but says it doesn’t have enough money for fair war Veterans pensions.

 

The official estimate of the cost of the new Iraq war to Australian taxpayers is currently $500 million a year, and this will increase as time goes by. PM Abbott is now talking about deploying Australian combat ground Troops to Iraq. This will cost much, much more. Additionally, the government can find an additional $630 mil to upgrade our security organisations at home, which have been keeping the country safe for years on the budget they have as it is without any major increase.

 

Additionally the government intends to give millionaires $50,000 to have a baby and will be spending hundreds of millions extra for the Antarctic station.

 

When it comes to balancing the budget the government is forcing the small end of town to cop the bill and is leaving the big end of town alone.

During Question Time on Wed 1 Oct 2014 in the Australian House of LiaRepresentatives, PM Tony Abbott once again lied in response to a question about why the government plans to reduce war Veterans pensions from 2017. The government plans to change the method of indexation of war Veterans pensions from 2017 onwards which will see the dollar value and purchasing power of Veterans pensions reduce over time, yet Abbott denied this is true last Wednesday, and during his denial he once again distorted the facts and lied as he ran for cover while trying to defend this treachery. On top of this Abbott compared war Veterans pensions to the Family Tax Benefit when he said if it was good enough for the FTB to be indexed to the CPI alone, then it was good for all social security recipients. Abbott consistently likens war Veteran pensions, and the pensions of Defence Force members, war widows, ex service member and their kids to social security pensions. Veterans pensioners under Veteran Law are NOT social security recipients. Veterans are covered under special legislation which recognises their unique service to the Nation, and have been so recognised since 1916.

UK GMO lobby wants “genome edited” products to escape GMO regulation and labelling

There’s a massive lobbying effort in Europe, led by the UK, to exempt new “genome editing” techniques from GMO regulations and labelling.

Deep Undercover: Police Officer in UK Fathered a Child with an Activist as Part of an Investigation

Last Friday British media reported that the UK’s Metropolitan Police would pay £400,000 (about $680,000) in a settlement with a woman, known only as Jacqui, who was conned by a man who fathered her first child, said that he loved her, and then one day disappeared. She knew him as Bob Robinson. His real name, as she would learn 25 years later, was Bob Lambert. He was an operative with the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), a special unit within the British police that infiltrated a host of environmentalist groups to gather intelligence. In several cases the operatives, almost always men, established long-term intimate relationships with women in order to gain access to the world of underground animal rights or environmental activists.

Common Medications and Multiple Drug Combinations Increasingly Linked to Fatal Car Crashes

More Than One in Five Fatal Car Crashes Involve Driver on Multiple Medications

A CDC report8 issued this past summer analyzed data on drivers who tested positive for drugs after being involved in fatal crashes in the US between 1993 and 2010. Not surprisingly, the results were as disturbing as they were revealing. First of all, prescription drugs were involved in fatal car crashes at three times the rate of marijuana.

This is not meant to be an argument that driving under the influence of marijuana is safe, but it clearly shows that prescription drugs, especially when combined with alcohol, is an even greater hazard when you’re on the road.9 Moreover, the study found that between 1993 and 2010, the number of drivers with three or more drugs in their system nearly doubled, increasing from 11.5 to 21.5 percent.

 

 

How Israel is turning Gaza into a super-max prison

Roads, schools and the electricity plant to power water and sewerage systems are in ruins. The cold and wet of winter are approaching. Aid agency Oxfam warns that at the current rate of progress it may take 50 years to rebuild Gaza.

Where else in the world apart from the Palestinian territories would the international community stand by idly as so many people suffer – and not from a random act of God but willed by fellow humans?

The reason for the hold-up is, as ever, Israel’s “security needs”. Gaza can be rebuilt but only to the precise specifications laid down by Israeli officials.

America’s great terrorist mystery: When our allies and enemies engage in the same “evil”

It’s really confusing, these days, to understand who is or is not a terrorist.

Sure, it seems easy. Al-Qaida and the Islamic State (ISIL) — regardless of what relationship we believe the two groups have — are terrorist groups, inflicting gruesome casualties on civilians. Both are dangerous precisely because in well-trained small groups, they have the ability to inflict massive casualties.

But many of the characteristics the press uses to demonize ISIL, most notably its practice of beheading people it executes, but also its ruthless policing of radical Islam, are also true of a chief American ally in the region, Saudi Arabia. While the Saudi beheadings might be excused as the Kingdom’s preferred way of executing convicted criminals (arguably, it’s as humane, though more spectacular, as the current American practice of carrying out death penalties using a cocktail of Do It Yourself chemicals that may take hours to work), they are executing people for sorcery and criticizing the regime, crimes that undermine the claim that such executions serve anything called justice.

 

 

A NEW ISRAELI PIN-UP CALENDAR TO DIE FOR ~~ LITERALLY

Just a couple of months after the Gaza war, Israel has found a new way “to show the world the beauty of Israel and its people” — via the power of a pin-up calendar featuring real IDF soldiers.

Or, as the creators of the MTKL Israeli Army Women Calendar like to call them, “the chosen amongst the chosen people.”

These chosen women, brought together by two former (male) soldiers who “scoured the ranks of the powerful Israeli army,” would like you to donate $25 to their Indiegogo campaign so that they can not only ship you this calendar, but also create a whole line of clothing and accessories that will blend “the best of military and street into must-have urban fashion.”

ed note–several things that need mention here–

  1. Rivlin, (as well as all those gathered with him in this ‘solemn atmosphere’–is LYING. As a devout Torah/Talmud following Jew, he does not see the massacre of innocent Gentiles as a ‘crime’. Jewish law is clear on this matter, and particularly when it is taking place within the ‘borders’ of the Jewish state as laid out in the Torah–

‘In the cities that the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, you shall save nothing alive that breathes’–Book of Deuteronomy.

The only reason he is doing this is because from time to time Israel needs to go to the salon and get prettied up. Her PR right now is at an all-time low following the deliberate massacre of over 2,000 innocent human beings in Gaza, the net result of which is that Gentiles are beginning to see that ideed there is a big difference between the ‘world view’ as embraced by Jews vs Gentiles.

Facts All US Citizens Need to Know About Israel and Palestine

Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.

Livni’s Facebook reply to Naftali Bennett shows true face of Israeli ‘moderates’

Livni’s response was instructive. Posting on her Facebook account, Livni accused Bennett of opposing a peace agreement even at the potential “cost” of “the international isolation of Israel, economic collapse and ostracizing.” She continued:

You know what, Bennett? I too believe in the historical right of the People of Israel over all of The Land of Israel, but unlike you I also believe in the right of young people and the future generations to live in a Jewish and democratic state, [a] secure [state], with recognized borders and [a state] being a part of the free world, a state which [they] can take pride in, and in Zionism which had established it.

Livni then added: “My interest is not to establish a state for the Palestinians, but to give our young ones this state and this future in The Land of Israel.”

Israel increases pressure on nonviolent struggle’s flagship village

If you take a look at the Wikipedia page on Bil’in, you’ll see that the last updates about the village’s struggle against the separation wall refer to 2012. B’Tselem’s page on Bil’in was last updated almost two years ago. One could easily be led to believe that the struggle is over. But Bil’in continues to demonstrate.

Perhaps updating Wikipedia and B’Tselem’s website isn’t necessary. The situation in Bil’in remains as it was. Veteran protesters even experience flashbacks to 2008, when the demonstrations took place near the old route of the wall. This is the same route that stole nearly half of the village’s agricultural land, and which the High Court later ordered be dismantled and moved west. This was before the new route was built and introduced in 2011 — the same one that steals only one third of the village’s land.

Feds Retaliate against the Bundy Ranch and the Southern Nevada People

Feds Retaliate against the Bundy Ranch and the Southern Nevada People On Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people.

Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). 90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.

Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.

As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise).

Canada: Decoding Harper’s Terror Game. Beneath the Masks and Diversions

Since Harper publicly claimed an “act of terrorism” two days before the sensational Ottawa murder and crashing of Parliament and as soon as the Quebec killing occurred, questions arise. The normally zipper-lip Harper did so long before any forensic facts were in, and before the idea even occurred to anyone else. Why? Revealingly the federal security state had been running war games exercises depicting just such attacks weeks before the crazed murders (Canadian Authorities Ran War Game Drills Depicting ISIS Attack Scenarios Brandon Martinez, Global Research, October 24, 2014). Lone-wolf nut cases, killings out of nowhere, unknown motivators and arming, and the state leader most profiting from mutation of the demented murders into “terrorist acts” before anyone else – – who joins the dots? It is taboo to think through such situations, and this too is known beforehand. Sure enough within the day, the RCMP and CSIS get the new extraordinary powers they sought, and for the first time in office the robotic Harper is behaving with a warmth not even extended to his young son with whom he shakes hands in farewell. He is hugging opposition leaders in Parliament to show a new human side to complete the image makeover in motion.

And Australia continues to look to the moribund US alliance for its security protection. The times are changing and Australia must look to Asia for its security as a non aligned nation, which India is. Australia would struggle to be a middle power with its current military capability of around 47,000 all up. Indonesia has around 470,000 in its armed forces and continues to purchase much modern equipment for its forces. The troglodytes in Canberra are putting the future security of Australians at risk because of their blind subservience to the Americans and British………….KT

The Illusion of Democracy

The electoral process is an essential part of “the consent of the governed” defined by Rousseau. In almost all of the so-called democratic countries, however, the important act of voting to elect the people’s representatives has become an exercise in futility. Today politicians, who still have the audacity to call themselves public servants, are the obedient executors of the trans-national global corporate elite. These politicians are actors who are cast to perform in opaque screenplays written by top corporate power brokers and marketed to the public like products. In this sad state of affairs that passes for democracy, citizens have become blind consumers of products, which are political figureheads working for global corporate interests. For any organism to remain healthy, it must be able to excrete. The same applies to our collective social body, but instead of regularly eliminating our political residue and flushing it away, we recycle it.

Of Prepubescent Profanity Tarts, Warming up for the Alternate NAMBLA Games.

Obviously we have to address this ‘tots with tiaras’ profanity advert; not only completely off the wall but also, nothing more than an example of crass materialism, when you look under the hood. And what would a viral PC advert be without skewered statistics? Now we got one in five raped but they kind of covered themselves by tacking on ‘abused’ or ‘assaulted’, I forget which. I do know that this includes verbal insults and dirty looks. Here’s a little commentary. You get a clue about several things by reading the comments. Here’s the website and you get to see the video too. A good terse explanation about the reality of one of the statistics can be found here, as for the other stats, I’ve made my observation and I wasn’t being whimsical.

I agree with the criticism of “Tots in Tiarras” and view it as another symptom of a society that has become very sick, with failed beauty queens as mothers trying to relive their glory days vicariously through their children. As for the children, they should be allowed to remain children for as long as possible because growing up is a one-way street and you don’t get to go back. I don;t think anyone has the right to tell a child to be a grown-up until we have created a world worth being grown up in.

Judicial Watch’s Fast and Furious Breakthrough

Judicial Watch has finally forced the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide a detailed listing of all the records it has withheld from Congress and the American people about the deadly Operation Fast and Furious scandal and its cover-up. The documents, as we suspected, detail the personal involvement of outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder in managing the DOJ’s media strategy and its response to congressional investigations.

 

 

Jakarta International School: Teachers and staff at top international school accused of raping students as young as five

The school says they had agreed with the parents to keep the case confidential to protect the child, and were surprised when Thomas and Ria shared the details with other parents, and then organised a press conference, to reveal what had happened. Thomas and Ria say they weren’t satisfied with the response of school officials, who they say had advised them against reporting the assault to the police.

Following the claims, six Indonesian cleaners, five men and a woman, were arrested. One of them died while in custody; the police say he committed suicide. The four other men all admitted to the crime, but have since retracted their statements, saying they were obtained under torture. Their lawyers also argue the medical examinations of the boy do not show evidence of rape. Their trial began early September.

We are descended from the apes, but apparently not that far!

31 Palestinians homeless after Israel demolished their homes, near Hebron

Israeli army on Monday October 27th, accompanied with the so-called “civil administration” broke into the village of Um Al Kheyr South Hebron, with bulldozers and military jeeps, demolished six houses and a traditional oven (tabun), leaving 31 people homeless, including 12 children.

Tax Revolving Door Enriches Former IRS Officials Who Cash in by Navigating Inversions Through Rules They Wrote

Hicks epitomizes the world of high-level Washington lawyers who have played a behind-the-scenes role in helping these tax-driven address changes proliferate. Top federal tax officials, many of them career corporate lawyers, have sometimes closed loopholes only after companies slipped through them. And former officials like Hicks use skills and contacts honed in office to help companies legally outmaneuver the government.

Ebola, Urbanization and the Spanish Flu

Yet, it would have been the growth in city population (i.e., urbanization) that had to have been one of the leading causes for why so many died of the Spanish Flu. Those living in cities would have had a dramatically higher chance of dying from the 1918 Flu Pandemic, than those who live outside the cities, on a farm.

Even more interesting is the fact that the Spanish Flu of 1918 was less lethal than Ebola – ‘only’ killing between 10% and 20% of its victims.

CDC says returning Ebola medical workers should not be quarantined

Federal health officials on Monday revamped guidelines for doctors and nurses returning home to the United States from treating Ebola patients in West Africa, stopping well short of controversial mandatory quarantines being imposed by some U.S. states.

Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), called for isolation of people at the highest risk for Ebola infection but said most medical workers returning from the three countries at the center of the epidemic would require daily monitoring without isolation.

Mexico’s missing students: New mass grave uncovered

A new mass grave was uncovered in the same Mexican state as the one found after the September 26 disappearance of 43 students at a protest. The police were led to the site by four arrested gang members.

The news of a suspected fresh grave was shared with local press by a police official not authorized to share details of the new find.

Although Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam announced Monday’s arrests at a press conference, news of the fresh mass grave hadn’t been made official.

MH17 might have been shot down from air – chief Dutch investigator

The chief Dutch prosecutor investigating the MH17 downing in eastern Ukraine does not exclude the possibility that the aircraft might have been shot down from air, Der Spiegel reported. Intelligence to support this was presented by Moscow in July.

The chief investigator with the Dutch National Prosecutors’ Office Fred Westerbeke said in an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel published on Monday that his team is open to the theory that another plane shot down the Malaysian airliner.

Following the downing of the Malaysian Airlines MH17 flight in July that killed almost 300 people, Russia’s Defense Ministry released military monitoring data, which showed a Kiev military jet tracking the MH17 plane shortly before the crash. No explanation was given by Kiev as to why the military plane was flying so close to a passenger aircraft. Neither Ukraine, nor Western states have officially accepted such a possibility.

The Worst Act of Terrorism in San Francisco History

Almost instantly, two radicals — Thomas J. Mooney and his assistant, Warren Billings — were targeted for questioning. Both had long been tracked by the police for their involvement in various “socialist shenanigans:” Mooney for “conspiring to dynamite power lines” at a 1913 strike, and Billings for bringing dynamite on a train. Both had previously been cleared of all charges for lack of evidence, but investigators were constantly looking for a way to imprison them. They were, as described by one publication, “San Francisco’s most hunted radicals.”

New, More Toxic Breed of Crops Gain Approval

Instead of taking a proactive approach to save the environment and human life, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently decided to deregulate Dow Chemical’s next-generation GE crops.

These crops are not only resistant to glyphosate, but also carry resistance to toxins like 2,4-D, a component of Agent Orange, and Dicamba, which has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The chemical 2,4-D and other herbicides of this class have also been linked to:

Immune system cancers
Parkinson’s disease
Endocrine disruption
Reproductive problems

Then, on October 15, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced3 its final decision to register Enlist Duo—a new herbicide manufactured by Dow Chemical, to be used on corn and soybeans genetically engineered to tolerate both 2,4-D and glyphosate.

Middle class families in UK suffered six ‘lost years’ because of recession

Middle class families in the UK saw their finances set back six years during the recession, worse than their counterparts in Romania, Bulgaria or Slovenia, a new international study shows.

Median incomes for families with children in the UK in 2012 fell back to levels not seen experienced 2006, exposing the impact of the downturn on working households.

Families in Greece, which suffered some of the worst effects of the financial crisis and its aftermath, were by far the hardest hit, with 14 “lost years” of progress.

Rather than let the FBI pick them off one at a time, everyone with secrets needs to go public at the exact same time.

Blackout Britain: UK faces power outages if winter is long and cold, warns National Grid

The margin between the amount of electricity generated and peak demand is expected to be just 4.1 per cent – the smallest gap in seven years.

Bad weather of the kind seen once every 20 years could see the margin narrow to just 2.8 per cent, the report found, resulting in the grid failing to meet its “basic reserve requirement” of spare capacity needed to run the system.

If this happened, the grid would be forced to adopt contingencies such as paying factories to shut down and supplying reserves from mothballed power stations.

Watch your attachments: Microsoft Office bug lets hackers take over computers

A dangerous new security vulnerability has been discovered in Microsoft’s Office software, threatening to hijack users of virtually every existing version of Windows.

The bug in question affects programs like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel – and could allow an intruder to gain access to and control over a user’s entire computer.

Already, Microsoft has discovered that hackers are using the bug to hack computers through PowerPoint. Windows users should be wary of opening PowerPoint files sent via email unless they completely trust the original source, the company wrote in an online security advisory. Even in cases involving trusted sources, it has advised to not open the files received unexpectedly.

And the mighty NSA cannot find these crooks either, can they?

America has turned its back on its own history. We need public investment; at a time of very low interest rates, we could easily afford it. But build we won’t.

America used to be a country that built for the future. Sometimes the government built directly: Public projects, from the Erie Canal to the Interstate Highway System, provided the backbone for economic growth. Sometimes it provided incentives to the private sector, like land grants to spur railroad construction. Either way, there was broad support for spending that would make us richer.

10 Common Medical Billing Overcharges You Can Prevent

From surgery costs, to administrative fees, to equipment charges, hospitals and clinics routinely overcharge their patients for services both big and small. The medical principle of “first, do no harm” sometimes seems to have gone out the window completely.

Unfortunately, there are no laws to keep hospitals and clinics from doing this. It is our responsibility to step up and blow the whistle on these—let’s face it—criminal practices.

 

 

8 Unfair Medical Billing Practices and How to Fight Them

3) Double-billing

Often a medical bill can include separate charges for items that were included in other bills. For example, hospitals sometimes charge separately for the sheets and pillows on a hospital bed, a cost that is usually included in the price of the room. It’s also possible to see a charge for the scrubs, masks and gloves worn by an OR staff on both the surgery bill and the bill for the operating room time.

Scott Pelley: He was intubated.

John Mulligan: He was intubated.

Scott Pelley: Tube down his throat?

John Mulligan: Tube down his throat. He had a dialysis catheter placed because he was not making any urine, but he needed to. He was heavily sedated and he had tears running down his eyes, rolling down his face, not just normal watering from a sedated person. This was in the form of tears. And I grabbed a tissue and I wiped his eyes and I said, “You’re going to be okay. You just get the rest that you need. Let us do the rest for you.” And it wasn’t 15 minutes later I couldn’t find a pulse. And I lost him. And it was the worst day of my life. This man that we cared for, that fought just as hard with us, lost his fight.

*emphasis added.

Saturday was October 4th, the day Israeli media said Duncan died. Duncan’s death was not announced to the US public until 4 days later on October 8th. So already we know the facts about Ebola are being “managed.”

UPDATE: Shortly after this post, CBS altered the transcript at their website to obfuscate just when Duncan died (shades of Winston Smith) but as the video linked above proves, the nursee did indicate that Duncan dies on the 4th, the very day the Israel National News reported it. According to the US media, Duncan died on the 8th. So regardless of any other information, we know that Ebola is being “wagged”.

And while the disease typically dies on surfaces within hours, research has discovered it can survive for more than seven weeks under certain conditions.

During tests, the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that the Zaire strain will live on samples stored on glass at low temperatures for as long as 50 days.

And winter is right around the corner!

Compare How U.S. Responds To The Killing Of American Kids Based On Identity Of The Killers

Last Wednesday in Jerusalem, a three-month-old American baby was killed, and eight other people injured, when a car plowed into a crowded sidewalk; the driver, a 20-year-old Palestinian named Abed a-Rahman a-Shaludi, was killed by police when he tried to flee the scene. The family of the driver insisted it was an accident, but Israeli officials immediately called it a “terrorist act.” Some Israelis speculated that it was in retaliation for the killing in the West Bank of a 5-year-old Palestinian girl days earlier by an Israeli settler who ran his car into her (and another Palestinian girl, seriously injured) and then fled the scene (Palestinian officials denounced that incident as “terrorism”).

Why Do Banks Want Our Deposits? Hint: It’s Not to Make Loans.

Many authorities have said it: banks do not lend their deposits. They create the money they lend on their books.

Robert B. Anderson, Treasury Secretary under Eisenhower, said it in 1959:

When a bank makes a loan, it simply adds to the borrower’s deposit account in the bank by the amount of the loan. The money is not taken from anyone else’s deposits; it was not previously paid in to the bank by anyone. It’s new money, created by the bank for the use of the borrower.

The Bank of England said it in the spring of 2014, writing in its quarterly bulletin:

The reality of how money is created today differs from the description found in some economics textbooks: Rather than banks receiving deposits when households save and then lending them out, bank lending creates deposits.

. . . Whenever a bank makes a loan, it simultaneously creates a matching deposit in the borrower’s bank account, thereby creating new money.

 

 

The Myth of the Free Press

Tens of Thousands of Jews Leaving Israel for Germany

A growing exodus of young Israelis to Berlin has not only shocked Israel’s far right leadership but has highlighted the growing disillusionment with Zionism among Israel’s younger generation.

As Israeli commentators noted, the trend would encourage the late Israeli leader, Yitzhak Rabin to turn in his grave. He once described those who fled Israel as a “cascade of wimps” and a “fallout of cowards.” Ravit Hecht, a columnist with Israel’s oldest daily newspaper, Ha’aretz, has blamed ultranationalists for the exodus, and there may well be substance to her claim. “Berlin is a lovely city, but it is sucking away all the forces that we desperately need here, especially now,” she wrote. Of course, it’s not Berlin that’s doing the sucking, but Israel, in a different sense of the word.

Marathon County police are not apologizing for their decision to use an armored military vehicle on a senior citizen because he may have been “argumentative.”

Town officials claim that a business which Hoeppner operates on his property is in violation of zoning ordinances.

In 2011, the town confiscated large amounts of personal property from Hoeppner because he refused to pay the fines. Several tractors, pallets and equipment were auctioned off by the government for “pennies on the dollar” according to Hoeppner’s attorney, Ryan Lister.

Next, the town imposed a $500-a-day fine on Hoeppner for refusing to remove certain equipment from his property. Eventually, the bill ran up close to $100,000, and the town came to collect the money with an armored truck and two dozen cops.

 

 

Rogers: Can’t rule out boots on the ground in Syria

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said on Sunday it’s important not to rule out putting troops on the ground in Syria to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, but smaller, more targeted steps are needed first.

For example, placing special capability soldiers among Syrian rebels will help them fight better, the Michigan Republican said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” The U.S. also needs a better strategy for combating ISIL, Rogers said. After meeting with British officials, he said a lack of strategy in the U.S. is a glaring problem.

“I think what shocked our British friends is this lack of strategy,” he said. “I think that they’ll be with us if we can put together a coherent strategy for Syria and Iraq. I really do believe that.”

“If you think about what we’re doing, it’s really small pecks at a really big problem,” Rogers added.

CODSWALLOP, INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ROGERS!!

Embedding “special capacity soldiers” with Syrian rebels on the ground, means that the US government has its military’s boots on the ground, period, end of discussion.

And it is utterly no secret, sir, that the US is hoping to achieve regime change in Syria in order to engineer regime change in Iran, in spite of the accords the P5 + 1 and their Iranian counterparts are desperately working to hammer out regarding Iran’s nuclear energy program before the deadline of 24 November.

I would like to strongly caution you, sir, that such a war against Iran may well wind up with Russia deciding that it will join such a confrontation on the side of the Iranian government.

As you well know from your briefings on the US government’s military status, our country’s military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome in such a confrontation.

And if you thing you can convince the very war-weary American public that another shooting war in the Middle East is a good idea, you are very, very sorely mistaken, and completely, in-your-face, out of touch with your constituents.

These wars are for the protection of the hegemony of the US dollar and corporate profit; they do nothing to enhance our freedoms, safety, and way of life.

 

 

Bellevue staffers call in ‘sick’ after Ebola arrives

An extraordinary number of Bellevue Hospital staffers called in sick on Friday rather than treat the city’s first Ebola patient — and those who showed up were terrified to enter his isolation chamber, sources told The Post.

“The nurses on the floor are miserable with a ‘why me?’ attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co-workers called out sick,” one source said.

“One nurse even went as far as to pretend she was having a stroke to get out of working there, but once they cleared her in the ER they sent her back up,” the source added.

 

 

CDC: 21-Day Monitoring For All Coming From Ebola Nations

No “distress signal” to Kaliningrad

The military underwater hunt has ended with no concrete evidence of what caused the alert.

But during the search newspaper Svenska Dagbladet had reported sources which claimed the hunt took place in the context of an encrypted distress signal between a point in the Stockholm archipelago and the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, between Poland and Lithuania.

Dagens Nyheter requested the documents concerning the signal’s interception.

The military usually replies that the documents are classified. This time they were not even able to do that.

“Nothing like that exists, the report is false,” says one of Dagens Nyheter’s own anonymous sources, within naval intelligence.

Canada criminalizes criticism of Israel: Analyst

The pro-Israel Canadian government is modifying the country’s criminal code to ban any criticism of the Zionist regime for atrocities against Palestinians, an analyst says.

“The Zionist ruling clique of Canada, through their front-man Stephen Harper, is seeking to beef up the already-existing Orwellian ‘hate propaganda’ law, which has been primarily used to curtail criticism of Zionists and Israel,” wrote Martinez.

 

 

Thousands More US Troops Headed to Liberia to Fight Ebola

Thousands of additional US troops are heading to Liberia, according to commander Major General Gary Volesky, the lead of the ongoing war on Ebola in western Africa.

Volesky praised the “great team” of troops being sent to Liberia, and vowed that the forces would “stamp out Ebola” across the region. The initially stated “war goal” was to build 17 treatment units in Liberia for the large number of Ebola patients.

The treatment units are supposed to be completed by December, but the latest indications are that the US military involvement there will not end with this construction.

THOUSANDS of US troops, rather than trained medical professionals?!?

Forgive me, but this feels more like a military invasion rather than a medical, humanitarian measure.

And as Africareport.com reported in February of this year:

While oil could potentially accelerate the country’s development, Liberians also remember that mismanagement of its forestry, gold and diamonds resources was one of the causes of the last war. When Liberia’s 14-year civil war was ending 10 years ago, citizens desperately wanted to live in a country where children could go to school safely, women are not molested, traders travel between cities, and so on. Today, with those goals mostly met, the country faces another challenge: that of how managing its abundant natural resources, particularly oil that was discovered in 2010.

The eradication of ebola may well be the “good reason” for this abundance of American troops over trained medical professionals on this deployment; however, it is hard to believe that the embarrassment of riches in Liberia’s oil wealth is not perhaps the “real reason”, and the relative ease of producing it, which has generated this “invasion”.

Inhalation of viral doses as low as 400 plaque-forming units of virus caused a rapidly fatal disease in 4-5 days.

GMOs may be to Blame for Spike in Kids Suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease

One of the largest studies to date conducted by researchers from the University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UH) Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital has found a dramatic increase in inflammatory bowel conditions (IBD) in children in the U.S. in the last decade, likely due to eating GMOs.

While the incidence of IBD has caused many hospitalizations, the reasons behind the disease are unclear, except for one culprit – the consumption of genetically modified ingredients. This, mostly from school lunches, eating processed GMO foods at home, and at restaurants. The complete study can be found online in the Journal of Investigative Medicine.

There has been a 65% increase in IBD hospital discharges from 2000 to 2009. The number increased from 11,928 discharges in 2000 to 19,568 discharges in 2009.

Natural, non-GMO food is always preferable to that contaminated with GMO.

Nobel Peace Prize Winners Urge Obama To Release CIA Torture Report

Twelve Nobel Peace Prize winners penned an open letter to President Barack Obama urging his administration to release a U.S. Senate report on the CIA’s use of torture.

In the letter, released Sunday night on TheCommunity.com, the laureates asked for “full disclosure to the American people of the extent and use of torture and rendition by American soldiers, operatives, and contractors, as well as the authorization of torture and rendition by American officials.” The letter also pushed for a clear plan for the closing of Guantanamo Bay and other international sites where the U.S. has engaged in torture.

The letter was signed by José Ramos-Horta, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, F.W. De Klerk, Leymah Gbowee, Muhammad Yunus, John Hume, Bishop Carlos X. Belo, Betty Williams, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Jody Williams, Oscar Arias Sanchez and Mohammad ElBaradei.

The laureates spoke out sharply against any use of torture, but said that the U.S.’ tactics were particularly troubling.

A short memo to those who signed this petition: what you are asking for will only happen when pigs fly.

At the end of the day, the US President Obama is no less a complete tool of the banks and the corporations which put him into office than was his Republican predecessor.

Banks and corporations love war, because war is profitable. And if it takes torture elicit confessions with which to justify wars, US leadership is certainly not morally opposed to torturing.

We have known, since the time of the Catholic Inquisition, that torture simply gets the tortured person to say what the torturer wants them to say in order to get the torture to stop; it rarely produces actionable intelligence, if at all.

 

 

Powerful X-Class Solar Flares Hit Earth, Cause Radio Blackouts

The sun has a myriad of effects on Earth during intense solar activity. When a flare erupts in the lower solar corona, the radiation generated can cause extreme ionization in the upper atmosphere, interfering with the propagation of high-frequency radio waves, meddling with global communications. Signals from global positioning satellites (GPS) can be interrupted, air traffic communications can get patchy and the interference can even be measured by amateur radio operators.

Just when you thought we had seen the last of the Bush crime family, comes word from Sulzberger’s Slimes that ex-Florida Governor Jeb Bush is being groomed as a possible candidate for the 2016 quadrennial freak show. This isn’t new to those who follow political developments closely, but it is the first time that ‘the paper of record’ has rolled out the Bush plan in a major way. Expect the rest of the piranha press to soon follow the lead of the ‘typhoid Mary’ of American journalism.

The Bush crime family began with grand-daddy Prescott Bush, a Connecticut Senator who helped undermine the investigations of the late great, and I mean great, Senator Joseph McCarthy. During the 70’s & 80’s, Prescott’s boy George ran the CIA, served as Reagan’s Vice President, and then President for 4 years. Bush 41 brought us the first Gulf War, tax increases and ballooning deficits before being ousted in favor of Bill Clinton and the Hildebeast in the 1992 elections.

Andy Hoffman – Fed’s Biggest Fear-Loss of Confidence in Dollar

Why is the Fed so terrified with even a relatively small market drop from all-time highs? Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin thinks, “Their fear is a loss of confidence in the dollar. It’s that simple. . . . Since 2008, all they have left in their arsenal is money printing, market manipulation and propaganda. The propaganda doesn’t work anymore. Nobody believes in recovery, and everyone knows it’s not true.” Hoffman also points out, “Just think about the perception if the Dow fell a thousand points in a day or, let alone, three or four thousand points in a day. They would call it the crash of 1929. Look at Europe. Twenty-five European banks failed the stress test. . . . The banking system, as a whole, is on the precipice right now, and the slightest drop will cause the whole 2008 calamity to start all over again. . . . Once that confidence leaves, everyone races out of currencies, and the stock market and the whole economy mirage collapses.”

 

 

IRS seizes woman’s entire savings because she deposits less than $10,000 at a time

An Iowa woman named Carole Hinders saw her bank balance go from $33,000 to zero thanks to IRS confiscation. Hinders, who owns a small, cash-only Mexican restaurant, has not been charged with any crime and is not suspected of tax fraud. The IRS says they took her money solely because she deposited too little of it at a time, and the agency claims she did so to avoid the required reporting of any bank transaction over $10,000. She says she just thought it was helpful to save the bank paperwork.

Police impose checkpoints, deploy drones at high school football game

Fans were startled by the heavy presence of police officers, drone surveillance, and warrantless checkpoints upon entry at the local high school football game.

The prison-like security at Summerville High School was called “the reality of the world we live in today.” As students and fans filed into the homecoming football game on Friday, October 24th, 2014, they were forced to place their belongings in a bin for police examination, then walk through a metal detector. Stadium-goers were restricted from bringing certain items into the stands.

Fans also were quick to notice the conspicuous presence of police officers mixed among the crowd and perched on the rooftops, surveillance drones whirring overhead, and even SWAT team members ready for action.

The security bonanza was imposed because school district officials had allegedly been tipped off that rival gangs might fight at the game, WCIV reported. No incidents of violence were reported.

I have precisely two words for the parents and the students who were “treated” to this behaviour, courtesy of their local police: home schooling.

 

 

24 Cops and Armored Military Vehicle Sent To Loot A 75 Year Old’s Retirement Fund

For years, 75-year-old Roger Hoeppner has been at odds with his local government in Marathon County, Wisconsin, over $80,000 dollars worth of fines relating to the use of his property.

Hoeppner has strongly disputed the fines that have been imposed on him, and he has been through multiple lawsuits and appeals with the city, in a fight to use his property the way that he wants to.

Town officials claim that a business which Hoeppner operates on his property is in violation of zoning ordinances.

In 2011, the town confiscated large amounts of personal property from Hoeppner because he refused to pay the fines. Several tractors, pallets and equipment were auctioned off by the government for “pennies on the dollar” according to Hoeppner’s attorney, Ryan Lister.

Syngenta Facing Legal Blitz Over Genetically Modified Corn

An unusual cluster of legal filings in recent weeks has capped a tumultuous year for the Swiss biotechnology giant Syngenta Corp., and highlights ongoing concerns over the inability of the United States to keep genetically modified crops separate from conventional crops.

This month, three class action proposals were filed on behalf of farmers in Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska, with the potential to include almost anyone who grew or sold corn commercially across the country over the past year. The moves came just weeks after similar lawsuits were filed by two of the country’s largest grain exporters, Cargill and Trans Coastal Supply.

All of these legal actions revolve around genetically modified corn hybrids that Syngenta began selling in 2009. While those products have been approved for general use in the U.S., they have not been approved in China, and there is no formal indication as to whether they will be.

Good.

Every consumer on the planet deserves to know if what they are buying at the store is genetically modified, or not.

Given the choice, I would not chose anything genetically modified, because the longer term studies show, without question, the harm these GMO products can do over time.

I am not afraid of Ebola. I am afraid of the government’s mishandling of Ebola!

 

 

Oooooops.

Australian PM Phony Tony Abbott has publicly accused Russian President Putin of murder and an international crime, without any evidence at all. What happened to the Australian system of natural justice, due process, a fair trial and the standards of proof? As in all criminal matters we must wait until a formal forensic investigation has been conducted and then, on the weight of evidence, the responsible authority must lay charges against the suspect/s. Anyway, the hysterical outbursts of Abbott are ill thought out, made up as he goes along, peppered with obfuscation when he is questioned on these outbursts and totally irresponsible for an Australian PM who is conveniently forgetting the crash site is in the middle of a war zone. Unless he has forgotten or has never been to war, I can personally remind the PM that the usual civil structures, emergency services, legal and police services and authorities DO NOT EXIST IN A WAR ZONE IN THE WAY THEY EXIST IN PEACETIME……..KT

Germans Clear Russia in MH-17 Case

That was what was predicted in TFF PressInfo # 285 two days ago:

”For the above reasons the Swedish military will soon call off the whole thing and the affair will have served its purpose – precisely by not stating what it was, who it was or why it was. Or if it was.

Quarantined Nurse Kaci Hickox Is A Rabid Leftist And CDC Employee

Here’s where the story gets ever-so interesting. According to Got News correspondent Charles C. Johnson, nurse Kaci Hickox “is an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and a registered Democrat with a history of left-wing advocacy”:

Initially turned down for Doctors Without Borders, Hickox applied for a position with the Centers for Disease Control’s infectious disease unit. She received that position and began a two-year fellowship in Las Vegas, NV where she currently still works.

Furthermore, this delightful nurse once wrote a piece in which she “advocated against policies that would have developed life-saving drugs”:

Instead, she called on Johns Hopkins to make all discoveries accessible to the poor. In so arguing, she deprived drug companies of a market and therefore an incentive to develop drugs aimed at Third World populations.

More than twenty activists occupied the London offices of Airbus on Friday to protest the aerospace company’s military cooperation with Israel.

CDC Finally Admits that Ebola Can Float through the Air … 3 Feet

We’ve noted for some time that Ebola can be spread by aerosols to frontline healthcare workers.

The CDC is finally admitting this fact.

The CDC put out a new poster stating:

Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another.

A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

***

Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces like doorknobs, faucet handles, and toys, since the Ebola virus may live on surfaces for up to several hours.

 

 

Surprise! Valerie Jarrett helped cover up Fast and Furious

Sometimes those who follow politics closely erroneously assume that everyone else follows it closely as well. But for those of you who don’t, here’s a brief explanation of Fast and Furious:

It’s not just a movie series, it’s the name of an operation where the Obama administration illegally gave thousands of weapons, including military grade guns, to Mexican criminals, supposedly in an attempt to track criminal activity in Mexico. However, not only was the operation a complete failure, hundreds of Mexicans (and at least one American) were killed with these weapons. When Congressional investigators, who, by all accounts, were not aware of the operation (and did not authorize it) began investigating it, Obama claimed executive privilege in order to keep damning information about his involvement in the operation kept secret.

 

 

Ukraine Facing Harsh Winter Due To Coal Shortages

On 22 October, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that by the end of this year Ukraine will be 4 million tons short of coal.

In the latter statement, they are actually 100% correct (proving one more time that those who say that Putin is an oligarchic puppet are just useful and manipulated idiots).

Quarantined Traveler Who Returned To N.J. From West Africa Develops Fever

A health care worker who was quarantined at Newark Liberty International Airport after returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa developed a fever and was being evaluated Friday night.

The woman was the first person quarantined under a new screening system announced earlier Friday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The woman landed at Newark after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said at the news conference. A legal quarantine was issued for the woman, who was not a New Jersey resident and was set to go on to New York afterward.

Ebola quarantine nurse’s ties to CDC scrubbed from web; was it a staged op to invoke opposition to quarantines?

Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.

Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois — which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections — and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans.

Kaci Hickox emerged in the center of this debate just yesterday when she complained of being “interrogated” and held in violation of her civil rights. Kaci’s LinkedIn.com profile, which described her links to the CDC, was scrubbed from the web earlier today, and even Google cache has strangely been cleared of her profile which previously detailed her ties to the CDC.

FLASHBACK

How many dual Australian/Israeli citizens are in the Israeli Defence Force at the moment? The Australian government policy to cancel the passports of Australian passport holding citizens fighting in Syria and Iraq is the right move. However, the same must apply to Australian citizens with passports fighting in the IDF. What is good for the goose, is also good for the gander…………..KT

If dual citizens of Australia want to serve in the military, why is it that some choose to serve in the Forces of a FOREIGN COUNTRY and not in the Australian Defence Force? Surely anybody living in Australia, working in Australia, using Australian medical care and social security services and taking succour from all Australia provides to her citizens, should opt to serve in the Australian military? It can successfully be argued that service in the Armed Forces of another country is morally bankrupt in the first instance and may even constitute treason.

New report documents federal clampdown on scientists’ freedom of expression

In February 2012, the scientific journal Nature published an editorial opinion piece, Frozen Out, calling on the Canadian government to reform policies that restrict media access to federal scientists. This followed numerous stories documenting delays and confusion in how different federal departments respond to requests for media interviews on scientific matters.

How has the Harper government reacted? A new report, Can Scientists Speak, finds that federal media policies remain far more restrictive than those in the United States, and gives low to failing grades to nearly all 16 departments that employ scientists.

Since the US airstrikes began in early August, the Supreme Leader, Speaker of Parliament Ali Larijani, and military commanders have all accused Washington of creating the Islamic State’s threat.

However, the deputy head of Iran’s armed forces, General Massoud Jazayeri (pictured), has found a way of enhancing the allegations — on Saturday, he effectively redrew the map of the region to prove the US perfidy.

Peekaboo, I See You: Government Authority Intended for Terrorism is Used for Other Purposes

Mark Jaycox
Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Patriot Act continues to wreak its havoc on civil liberties. Section 213 was included in the Patriot Act over the protests of privacy advocates and granted law enforcement the power to conduct a search while delaying notice to the suspect of the search. Known as a “sneak and peek” warrant, law enforcement was adamant Section 213 was needed to protect against terrorism. But the latest government report detailing the numbers of “sneak and peek” warrants reveals that out of a total of over 11,000 sneak and peek requests, only 51 were used for terrorism. Yet again, terrorism concerns appear to be trampling our civil liberties…

 

 

If the Tesla D’s Such a Great Car..

Over the past week, I’ve been assaulted by one “news” story after the next about the latest fruit of government motors. Not GM. Tesla. The Model D. It is very slick! And very quick! It has all-wheel-drive! Not one but two electric motors (which isn’t new, by the way). Orgiastic comparisons with Porsche 911s and other exotic high-performance cars.

No mention, of course, that the government doesn’t pay people to buy 911s. Nor is Porsche a rent-seeking cartel whose existence depends on government support.

I was asked recently during a radio interview (here) why I do not like the Tesla. But that is not the right question, much less a fair question.

I haven’t got any particular like — or dislike — for the Tesla as such. If Elon Musk — or anyone else wants to build a car (powered by whatever, be it electricity or air or unicorn farts) and offer it for sale, they ought to be free to do so. I certainly have no objection to that.

The issue appears to be a conflict between Apple Pay and a mobile payment system called CurrentC that is being developed by a retailer-owned mobile technology outfit called Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX). Unlike Apple Pay, CurrentC does not use an NFC chip, but instead generates a QR code that is displayed on the merchant’s checkout terminal. Customers who have already linked their bank accounts to the CurrentC system scan the QR code from the terminal and the transaction is completed.

Man in Tokyo being tested for Ebola: reports

The country’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare did not immediately respond to a request for comment or confirmation, but media reports cite health minister Yasuhisa Shiozaki as calling the move “precautionary.” Local newspaper Japan Times said the man was a journalist who spent two months in Africa. Results of the test will be known early Tuesday.

 

 

DINOSAUR 13

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world’s greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime; the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

Based on the book “Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the Law, and My Life” by PETER LARSON and KRISTIN DONNAN

Claire and I watched this documentary last night. It is a stunning example of our current government seeing its role in society as bullying people whenever it can. The government went after Peter Larson and Kristin Donnan with a vengeance, railroading them first out of business then into prison while the man who actually committed the crime of selling the fossil T-Rex without US Department of the interior permission walked away with $7.6 million tax free from the sale of “Sue”, the most complete T-rex ever found.

In Cold War, U.S. Spy Agencies Used 1,000 Nazis

In the decades after World War II, the C.I.A. and other United States agencies employed at least a thousand Nazis as Cold War spies and informants and, as recently as the 1990s, concealed the government’s ties to some still living in America, newly disclosed records and interviews show.

At the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, law enforcement and intelligence leaders like J. Edgar Hoover at the F.B.I. and Allen Dulles at the C.I.A. aggressively recruited onetime Nazis of all ranks as secret, anti-Soviet “assets,” declassified records show. They believed the ex-Nazis’ intelligence value against the Russians outweighed what one official called “moral lapses” in their service to the Third Reich

Natural gas from fracking could be ‘dirtier’ than coal, Cornell professors find

Extracting natural gas from the Marcellus Shale could do more to aggravate global warming than mining coal, according to a Cornell study published in the May issue of Climatic Change Letters (105:5).

While natural gas has been touted as a clean-burning fuel that produces less carbon dioxide than coal, ecologist Robert Howarth warns that we should be more concerned about methane leaking into the atmosphere during hydraulic fracturing.

Natural gas is mostly methane, which is a much more potent greenhouse gas, especially in the short term, with 105 times more warming impact, pound for pound, than carbon dioxide (CO2), Howarth said, adding that even small leaks make a big difference. He estimated that as much as 8 percent of the methane in shale gas leaks into the air during the lifetime of a hydraulic shale gas well — up to twice what escapes from conventional gas production.

Because Fiona Woolf, the woman appointed to investigate the conduct of Establishment figures independently, including Leon Brittan, turns out to have had a number of dinners… with Leon Brittan.

Big Oil, Qataris, Saudis Lick Lips As US ‘Fights ISIS’ By Bombing Syrian Pipelines

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In yet another example of the infantile nature of NATO propaganda regarding the Syrian crisis, it is now being reported in the mainstream media that that the United States must bomb Syrian oil pipelines in order to defeat the ISIS threat that NATO itself created.

While logically fallacious, the rationale offered to the American public remains that ISIS is making millions of dollars per day via the sale of the oil taken from the fields in its possession on the black market to a number of different states…

US lawlessness fuels global insecurity

In an insightful geopolitical speech this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the US of instigating global instability and insecurity.

All in all, President Putin is right. The world has become a fearful, nervous place seemingly on a hair-trigger for over-reaction and irrational panic. This state of insecurity has, as Putin says, been brought on by years of lawless conduct by the US and its Western allies. The criminal wars of Iraq and Afghanistan – with millions of innocent victims – have multiplied and mutated into more and more illegal interventions and malignancies, such as the extremist ISIL network that is destabilizing Syria and the wider Middle East region.

Siege And Buffer Zone For Gaza

The Egyptian government is negotiating with residents in the northeastern Sinai Peninsula who live near the border with the Gaza Strip to leave their homes in order to establish a buffer zone along the border, a local dignitary said on Sunday.

The dignitary, who asked to remain anonymous, told Anadolu Agency that Egyptian authorities are seeking to establish a 500-meter buffer area along the 14km-long border with the Gaza Strip following a militant attack in northern Sinai earlier this week which killed at least 30 Egyptian soldiers.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?” — Thomas Jefferson

NO JUSTIFICATION FOR TERROR ON THE STREETS OF JERUSLEM

It didn’t start last week when a crazed motorist rammed his car into people waiting for the light rail in Northern Jerusalem. It didn’t start when a three month old Israeli child was killed in that incident. It started over 60 years ago.

Our hearts go out to the family of the dead child, Chaya Zissel Braun, killed that day. Our hearts went out to the families of over 500 Palestinian children in Gaza murdered by Israeli troops. It went out to the families of scores of Palestinian children murdered in the Occupied West Bank either by crazed settlers or Israeli soldiers.

French “hate speech” lawsuit leading to worldwide online censorship

A little over a year after a French court forced Twitter to remove some anti-Semitic content, experts say the ruling has had a ripple effect, leading other Internet companies to act more aggressively against hate speech in an effort to avoid lawsuits.

The 2013 ruling by the Paris Court of Appeals settled a lawsuit brought the year before by the Union of Jewish Students of France over the hashtag #UnBonJuif, which means “a good Jew” and which was used to index thousands of anti-Semitic comments that violated France’s law against hate speech.

Since then, YouTube has permanently banned videos posted by Dieudonne, a French comedian with 10 convictions for inciting racial hatred against Jews. And in February, Facebook removed the page of French Holocaust denier Alain Soral for “repeatedly posting things that don’t comply with the Facebook terms,” according to the company. Soral’s page had drawn many complaints in previous years but was only taken down this year.

Poor kids who do everything right don’t do better than rich kids who do everything wrong

America is the land of opportunity, just for some more than others.
That’s because, in large part, inequality starts in the crib. Rich parents can afford to spend more time and money on their kids, and that gap has only grown the past few decades. Indeed, economists Greg Duncan and Richard Murnane calculate that, between 1972 and 2006, high-income parents increased their spending on “enrichment activities” for their children by 151 percent in inflation-adjusted terms, compared to 57 percent for low-income parents.

 

 

Steel plants and car makers fear National Grid’s plans to keep lights on this winter may force them to cut use of electricity

On Tuesday, National Grid will announce its estimate of how much reserve power capacity the UK will have over the coming winter.

Earlier this year, energy regulator Ofgem estimated peak demand this winter to be about 54.5 gigawatts, with a safety margin of up to 10 per cent on top.

But three power station fires and problems with nuclear reactors have led to fears that capacity margins will be squeezed and even that consumers will experience ‘brown-outs’, when lights fade as power is restricted.

Guatemala syphilis experiment

The syphilis experiments in Guatemala were United States-led human experiments conducted in Guatemala from 1946 to 1948, during the administration of President Truman and President Juan José Arévalo with the cooperation of some Guatemalan health ministries and officials.[1] Doctors infected soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases, without the informed consent of the subjects, and treated most subjects with antibiotics. This resulted in at least 83 deaths.[2] In October 2010, the U.S. formally apologized to Guatemala for conducting these experiments.

There are two things to take away from this story.

  1. The US Government does carry out human experiments.
  2. The illegals from Guatemala probably have a lot of syphilis and other STDs!

 

 

“It Can’t Happen Here!” – Larken Rose

“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive.
It may be better to live under robber barons than under omni-potent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

The Police Are Still Out of Control. I Should Know. | By FRANK SERPICO

In the opening scene of the 1973 movie “Serpico,” I am shot in the face—or to be more accurate, the character of Frank Serpico, played by Al Pacino, is shot in the face. Even today it’s very difficult for me to watch those scenes, which depict in a very realistic and terrifying way what actually happened to me on Feb. 3, 1971. I had recently been transferred to the Narcotics division of the New York City Police Department, and we were moving in on a drug dealer on the fourth floor of a walk-up tenement in a Hispanic section of Brooklyn. The police officer backing me up instructed me (since I spoke Spanish) to just get the apartment door open “and leave the rest to us.”

The Fire Phone Is Officially a Failure

Amazon’s Fire phone now only costs $1 if you buy it with a 2-year AT&T contract. When it launched a few months ago, it was $199. If only it had been priced at $1 when it launched in July, perhaps it wouldn’t have been such a failure.

Although Amazon isn’t releasing official numbers on units sold, the company did mention in its Q3 report today that it’s taking a $170 million charge on inventory commitments, and that the massive hit is largely due the Fire phone’s dismal sales. The company said it’s currently stuck with $83 million worth of unsold Fire phones. That’s a whole lot of phones sitting in warehouses, looking for good homes.

Just imagine that if, before the era of home computing, when hand written letters were the norm, that there were government agents in all post offices whose job it was to open and read all letters and postcards. This is how the Soviet Communists and NAZIs behaved and for such a system to occur in western democracies was anathema and totally unacceptable. Email means electronic mail. In other words instead of handwriting a letter on paper, we type and electronic letter on a computer, and these emails should be just as personal and private as the old hand written paper letters. In Australia, if the police have evidence that somebody may be engaged in crime online, the legal mechanisms already exist for the police to seek a Court warrant to intercept the suspects online activity, and there is absolutely no need for the mass collection of online data from all and any Australians which is occurring as we speak …….KT

UPDATE

We now have a Communist government in office in Canberra, under the guise of being ultra conservative and using the pretext that it must thieve our privacy and freedoms to keep us safe.

YOU have a bigger chance of being killed falling off a ladder than of being killed by a terrorist in today’s Australia, and this truth was true BEFORE the government and Labor Opposition moved to steal our freedoms and invade our privacy. Before the current government recently moved to take more of our freedoms and privacy, Australia post Sep 11 2001 had among the most draconian security laws in the world, even more draconian than the Americans and British have. At least the Americans and British have a Bill of Rights. Australia does not.

Top U.S. health official warns of risks from Ebola quarantines

Quarantines imposed on travelers coming from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa could discourage American health workers from going there to help fight the epidemic, a senior U.S. medical official said on Sunday, warning such measures were “a little bit draconian.”

New York, New Jersey and Illinois imposed 21-day mandatory quarantines in the last two days for anyone arriving with a risk of having contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. They are the three West African countries that have borne the brunt of an epidemic that has killed nearly 5,000 people.

But critics worry the policies, going beyond federal regulations and intended to ease public concern over the spread of the disease, will just make matters worse.

I cannot understand why the Obama administration is keeping the travel lanes to Africa wide open. Maybe he is listening to his ego again. But one possible compromise nobody is talking about is allowing the volunteers (with a blood test) to skip the mandatory quarantine and impose the 21 day period on everyone else whose travel originates in Africa.

FLASHBACK 2009 – Baxter Sent Bird Flu Virus to European Labs by Error (Update2)

Baxter International Inc. in Austria unintentionally contaminated samples with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in three neighboring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of the deadly disease.

The contamination was discovered when ferrets at a laboratory in the Czech Republic died after being inoculated with vaccine made from the samples early this month. The material came from Deerfield, Illinois-based Baxter, which reported the incident to the Austrian Ministry of Health, Sigrid Rosenberger, a ministry spokeswoman, said today in a telephone interview.

“This was infected with a bird flu virus,” Rosenberger said. “There were some people from the company who handled it.”

Mistakes get made with vaccines. This may be what happened in the Kenema biological warfare lab.

 

 

Obama Administration Lied About Crimes Committed by Released Illegal Immigrants

The Obama Administration lied last year when they informed Congress and the public that the 2,200 people that the Administration released from incarceration to save money had only minor criminal records.

USA TODAY, gaining the data from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) through the Freedom of information Act, reports that some of the illegal immigrants had been charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking, and homicide.

GOP members were furious when the data was released. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had told Congress that the inmates who were released were “low-risk offenders who do not have serious criminal records.” Records reveal that ICE was readying itself for budget cuts in February 2013 when it released the immigrants, only two-thirds of whom had no criminal records.

And that is not including the fact that many of these illegals carry dangerous diseases including scabies, AIDS, Swine Flu, Bubonic Plague, and sooner-or-later, Ebola.

 

 

Examples of Serious Crimes of Illegal Aliens

The information below is taken from news sources. The aliens in these reports were all identified as being in the country illegally, and many of them had come into the hands of law enforcement agencies prior to the crime that is described below, but the alien was not deported or in some cases was deported but reentered the country.

These cases are listed as a demonstration that better prevention of illegal immigration is a public safety issue even though these cases are not representative of the illegal alien population in general. These cases refer to crimes other than terrorism.

 

 

U.S. Frees 36,007 Illegal Aliens With Serious Criminal Convictions

Besides implementing a flagrant amnesty plan that defies Congress and the rule of law, the Obama administration freed tens of thousands of illegal immigrants convicted of violent and serious crimes last year, according to the government’s own records.

The crimes committed by illegal aliens released from federal custody include homicide, sexual assault, theft, kidnapping and alcohol-related driving convictions. In all, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) freed 36,007 aliens convicted of 88,000 crimes from detention centers throughout the United States, according the breathtaking agency records, which were obtained this month by a nonpartisan research center dedicated to studying immigration issues.

 

 

7 Horrible Crimes Committed In America by Illegal Aliens

Usually when we talk about the harm illegal aliens do to Americans, we discuss the economic issues. They take jobs from Americans, they depress wages, they use services without paying taxes, they have kids here to leech off the taxpayers….it goes on and on. We also talk about the rule of law. After all, we already have a “path to citizenship” and it’s called following the law. Why should we reward people whose first act on our soil was breaking our law with American citizenship when everyone knows they’re supposed to be deported?

 

 

Illegal immigrant who ‘gunned down two California deputies’ had been deported to Mexico TWICE but managed to sneak back into the US again and again

A man suspected of killing two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California was deported twice to Mexico and had a drug conviction, federal authorities said Saturday.

The suspected shooter told Sacramento County Sheriff’s investigators that he was 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City. However, his fingerprints match the biometric records of a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte in a federal database, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.

Monroy-Bracamonte was first removed from the country in 1997 after being convicted in Arizona for possession of narcotics for sale. Monroy-Bracamonte was arrested and sent packing to Mexico a second time in 2001, Kice said.

Brazil election: Why antigovernment protesters are now voting Rousseff

The bohemian neighborhood of Lapa is a familiar place for Marcus Galiña and his peers. Lapa’s streets were host to many of the antigovernment protests that swept the nation over the past year and a half. And Mr. Galiña, an artist and an avid protester, was often there, witnessing the familiar scenes in demonstrations calling for better public services and government accountability: protesters in gas masks, Molotov cocktails, stun bombs, and arrests.

But just days before Brazil’s presidential runoff, the battleground for antigovernment protests in Lapa is a sea of red, the color of Brazil’s ruling Workers’ Party.

Galiña – like many others active in Brazil’s protests – is doing something that few could have imagined just a few months ago: enthusiastically supporting the reelection of incumbent Dilma Rousseff.

The world is waking up to the underhanded games the US plays to covertly control other countries. And more and more such tactics are falling flat on their faces. The moment Brazil helped form BRICS, Brazil was on the US Government’s Special High Interest Targets list! The goal of the covert US program was to replace Rousseff with a President who would swing BRICS towards US interests if not sabotage it outright, and for a while the race looked neck and neck. But the Brazilians have figured out that Rousseff’s challenger is a US puppet, and are unwilling to vote their nation back into US servitude.

“How can this happen?” Ms. Hinders said in a recent interview. “Who takes your money before they prove that you’ve done anything wrong with it?”

The federal government does.

My Cousin is Gone- Ebola/Government

My cousin attends Greenville College in Greenville, IL and recently came back from a mission trip to Liberia. He was there as a premed student giving vaccinations for polio and other various illnesses. He came back 6 days ago and began showing symptoms related to Ebola 3 days ago which he reported to Greenville Regional Hospital. They followed up with him by sending an ambulance with hazmat gear and shipped him to Barnes Hospital in Saint Louis, Missouri.

There is no confirmation of this story, as is also the case with Dr. James Lawrenzi’s report to Alex Jones that he knows of two patients that vanished from hospitals in Kansas City.

But let is stipulate for the moment that the stories are accurate. The current Ebola strain has a lethality rate of about 50%. If the US Government is trying to keep the public calm it would make sense that Ebola patients determined as likely to recover would be allowed in the media, while patients determined as likely to succumb would be hidden when possible. Another possibility is that while most Ebola victims are suffering from the version of Ebola released during the botched vaccine trials at Kenema, that the original weaponized Ebola might have also broken into the wild. I find it interesting that Obama has ordered a “pause” in US offensive biological weapons research at this time.

Israel’s internment regime

Those same smug liberals do not bother to inform themselves about the basic realities of Israel’s West Bank imprisonment regime.

Palestinian activists, human rights defenders, journalists and academics are frequently picked up off the streets, out of their homes in the middle of the night, in front of their families – Israel’s thug soldiers take them off to jail and intern them without trial, often in conditions of torture and isolation.

Military courts then rubber-stamp the actions of Israel’s military and spy agencies.

No mandatory Ebola quarantine for health workers coming to Washington area

One day after governors in New York, New Jersey and Illinois imposed a mandatory 21-day quarantine on medical workers returning from Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa, public health officials in the District, Maryland and Virginia did not follow suit Saturday, intensifying a national debate over how to prevent the spread of the disease.

Health officials are working to develop a consistent approach for the area around the nation’s capital. Joxel Garcia, director of the D.C. Department of Health, said that a mandatory quarantine was not scientifically justified and could have a chilling effect on the medical personnel, many of them volunteers, needed to treat Ebola patients at home and overseas.

 

 

Obama aides criticize Ebola quarantine rules

Aides to President Obama are criticizing decisions by three states to quarantine people who are returning from Ebola-stricken West Africa.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and United Nations ambassador Samantha Power said quarantines may discourage health workers from traveling to West Africa to help block the disease at its source.

“If you put everyone in one basket, even people who are clearly no threat, then we have the problem of the disincentive of people that we need,” Fauci said on ABC’s This Week. “Let’s not forget the best way to stop this epidemic and protect America is to stop it in Africa, and you can really help stopping it in Africa if we have our people, our heroes, the health care workers, go there and help us to protect America.”

Ebola fears as woman isolated at Brisbane, Australia hospital

A woman possibly infected with Ebola has been isolated at a Brisbane hospital.

The 18-year-old patient had recently arrived in Australia from west Africa but was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital after showing signs of fever, the Seven Network reported on Sunday.

She arrived in Brisbane 11 days ago with eight members of her extended family and all had been placed in home quarantine immediately, Queensland Chief Medical Officer Dr Jeannette Young told reporters in Brisbane.

They had left Guinea to move to Queensland.

Queensland Health knew the family was arriving, met them at the airport and arranged their quarantine.

Staff were checking the family’s health daily and on Saturday night the 18-year-old developed a fever.

This may include the location of the phone, details of its owner and their contacts, and even the content of text messages.

The data is then transmitted to market research companies and advertising agencies to track user’s shopping habits, experts claim.

But it is also suspected that criminal gangs, hackers and identity thieves have developed torch apps of their own to obtain personal data about consumers which could give them access to their bank accounts.

The veterans suspected that PCBs were being released by Monsanto. For decades, the biotech and seed company, also a former military contractor for bioweapons, dumped tons of the chemicals around Anniston, Alabama, where the base is located. The controversy culminated in 2003 in a $700 million settlement with residents, but the problems persist. Some service members are now reporting higher incidence of children born with birth defects.

 

 

The Reagan-Bush Era Iran Hostage Crisis Subterfuge (* sub·ter·fuge noun: deceit used in order to achieve one’s goal.)

In that year,(*1980) when Ronald Reagan was the Republican candidate trying to stop the re-election of President Jimmy Carter, a potentially treasonable plot was hatched, which came to be known as the ‘October Surprise’. To stop Carter getting the credit for securing the release of the 52 US embassy hostages seized after the Iranian revolution, members of the Reagan campaign flew to Paris to meet Iranian and Israeli representatives in October, less than a month before the election on 4 November.
***
It was agreed with the Iranians that the hostages would not be released before the election. In return, the Reagan-Bush team promised to supply $40m of military equipment if elected. Military equipment started to flow to Iran from Israel on 21 October, the proffered release of the hostages was withdrawn, and Carter was defeated. The hostages were finally released on 21 January 1981, minutes after Reagan was sworn in as president.

British pensioner poverty among worst in the EU

BRITAIN’s pensioners are some of the worst off in the EU and are at a greater risk of falling into poverty than those in Eastern Europe.

Some 15 countries come ahead of the UK when it comes to levels of poverty in the over-65s, according to a new report by the International Longevity Centre (ILC-UK).

The UK is performing worse than countries like Romania, Poland and Latvia, despite being the second richest in the Union.

A failing state pension system and low employment later in life has left 1.7million OAPs living below the breadline, experts say.

Some 16.1 per cent of British pensioners live in relative poverty, while Romania has just 15.4 per cent and Latvia has 13.9 per cent.

Germany, Austria, Spain, Denmark, Poland, Ireland, France, Norway, Slovakia, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, Hungary and the Netherlands are all performing better than the UK.

 

 

As the Union Flag is lowered at Camp Bastion…Britain’s war in Afghanistan finally ends

Nearly a third of voters prepared to support Ukip

The phenomenal rise in support for Ukip is underlined by a new Opinium/Observer poll which shows almost one-third of voters would be prepared to back Nigel Farage’s party if they believed it could win in their own constituency.

While the survey, which puts the Conservatives and Labour neck-and-neck on 33%, shows a substantial boost for the Tories (up five points on a fortnight ago), the rise of Ukip will be deeply alarming to the main parties.

 

 

The Dark Alliance of Media and Empire: The ‘Dissident’ Smear of Gary Webb

Tarzie committed the increasingly rare sin of genuine journalism by investigating and debunking, point by point, The Intercept’s ugly spin on Webb’s work — work which was later confirmed by the CIA itself. Now Tarzie is back with a follow-up on the continuing disparagement of Webb’s work by the Establishment media (covering its own spotty posterior for its original collaboration with CIA smears) in a new piece, with links to several other important stories on the case.

Anti-Assad Warmongers Drag in the Holocaust

“The irony is that the Nazi holocaust has now become the main ideological weapon for launching wars of aggression,” Norman Finkelstein tells Yoav Shamir in “Defamation,” the Israeli filmmaker’s award-winning 2009 documentary on how perceptions of anti-Semitism affect Israeli and U.S. politics. “Every time you want to launch a war of aggression, drag in the Nazi holocaust.” If you’re looking for evidence in support of Finkelstein’s thesis today, you need look no further than the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s exhibit of images of emaciated and mutilated bodies from contemporary Syria.

How Adding Iodine to Salt Boosted Americans’ IQ

Iodized salt is so commonplace in the U.S. today that you may never have given the additive a second thought. But new research finds that humble iodine has played a substantial role in cognitive improvements seen across the American population in the 20th century.

Iodine is a critical micronutrient in the human diet—that is, something our bodies can’t synthesize that we have to rely on food to obtain—and it’s been added to salt (in the form of potassium iodide) since 1924. Originally, iodization was adopted to reduce the incidence of goiter, an enlargement of the thyroid gland. But research since then has found that iodine also plays a crucial role in brain development, especially during gestation.

Iodine deficiency today is the leading cause of preventable mental retardation in the world.

Israeli Defense Forces shoot US teen dead during altercation in West Bank as State Department calls for ‘speedy and transparent investigation’

Conflicting reports have surfaced regarding the circumstances of Hammad’s shooting.

Soldiers ‘managed to prevent an attack when they encountered a Palestinian man hurling a molotov cocktail at them on the main road next to Silwad,’ an anonymous spokesperson for the Israeli army told Reuters.

Hammad’s cousin Moath claims that he was with a group of Palestinian boys throwing rocks at soldiers.

‘I don’t call that a clash — little kids throwing rocks or pebbles against live ammunition,’ said an uncle, Hakeem Khalek, said an uncle from New Orleans.

‘This all happens overseas, where kids throw rocks at military jeeps. And of course the Israeli army returned fire (and) we’re not talking rubber bullets.’

 

 

Meltdown at Heathrow: Flights take off with NO luggage, passengers left stranded on the runway for hours and departure boards fail to update after major computer crash disables airport’s baggage system

A major computer crash caused chaos at Heathrow last night – disabling the airport’s baggage system and leaving planes unable to park at their respective gates to unload.

Hundreds of passengers sat stranded on the tarmac for hours with departing flights also being prevented from leaving the London airport.

A Heathrow spokesman acknowledged the IT glitch but insisted it did not lead to any delays and that pilots had misinformed any passengers who thought otherwise.

The systems failure also led to angry scenes inside terminals – and astonishingly many BA flights took off without passengers’ luggage to relieve pressure on the airport.

The Coventry Blitz ‘conspiracy’

It’s 70 years since Germany launched one of the most devastating bombing raids of World War II, on Coventry. But did Winston Churchill have prior warning of the attack?

It has been claimed in a number of books that the wartime prime minister knew that the city was to be targeted by the German Luftwaffe, but chose to do nothing because it would have alerted Adolf Hitler to the fact the Allies had recently cracked the Nazis’ top-secret Enigma codes.

Coventry and its people were sacrificed, the theory goes, “for the greater good” – that is, that the benefits of playing the long game outweighed the short-term costs of leaving the West Midlands city to a terrible fate.

It’s not just historians who have written about the so-called Coventry conspiracy, though – it’s a theory which lives on to this day.

JFK: THE ZIONIST MANIFOLD COVER-UP

To discover the deepest truth of the JFK assassination, one has to tear up not one, but many lies stacked on top of each other. Pealing off the government lie is just the beginning. Just like in the case of 9/11, the mainstream “JFK truth movement” is really a cloud of partial truths meant to hide the core truth (the Zionist coup).

The hijacked plot theory is fully consistent with the profiles of the two main known actors in the drama: Lee Harvey Oswald, the patsy falsely accused of killing the President, and Jack Ruby, the man who killed the patsy and thereby closed the case.

We assume that any relationship to the famous Italian family carrying that last name is purely accidental.

Just imagine that if, before the era of home computing, when hand written letters were the norm, that there were government agents in all post offices whose job it was to open and read all letters and postcards. This is how the Soviet Communists and NAZIs behaved and for such a system to occur in western democracies was anathema and totally unacceptable. Email means electronic mail. In other words instead of handwriting a letter on paper, we type and electronic letter on a computer, and these emails should be just as personal and private as the old hand written paper letters. In Australia, if the police have evidence that somebody may be engaged in crime online, the legal mechanisms already exist for the police to seek a Court warrant to intercept the suspects online activity, and there is absolutely no need for the mass collection of online data from all and any Australians which is occurring as we speak …….KT

St. Louis City Anti-Terrorism Unit Activated after [COINTELPRO front] Black Panthers Declare War on Police

Information was received from a Federal Protective Services officer. An officer safety bulletin has been put out.

The original Black Panthers were first attacked then eventually infiltrated by the FBI. The current group appears to be an FBI front group right from the start and it looks like they are going to trigger major race riots as a prelude to declaration of a national emergency.

 

 

Orwell Was Right: MI5 spied on leading British historians for decades, secret files reveal

MI5 amassed hundreds of records on Eric Hobsbawm and Christopher Hill, two of Britain’s leading historians who were both once members of the Communist party, secret files have revealed.

The scholars were subjected to persistent surveillance for decades as MI5 and police special branch officers tapped and recorded their telephone calls, intercepted their private correspondence and monitored their contacts, the files show. Some of the surveillance gave MI5 more details about their targets’ personal lives than any threat to national security.

An American journalist has been killed in a car crash in Turkey just days after claiming she claimed the Turkish intelligence services had threatened her over her reporting of the siege of Kobane.

Serena Shim, who worked for Iran’s state-owned Press TV as Turkey correspondent, died in the city of Suruc after the car in which she was travelling reportedly collided with a ‘heavy vehicle’.

Shim’s death came just days after she spoke on camera of her fears of being arrested, claiming Turkish intelligence agents had accused her of spying after one of her reports suggested ISIS militants were being smuggled back and forth over the Syrian border in the back of aid vehicles.

FLASHBACK OCTOBER 22 – Police to hold ‘active shooter’ drill Thursday at Ferndale High

It will prepare school district personnel and law enforcement to respond to an armed gunman in a school or work environment and ensure all agencies, including federal border agencies and the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office, coordinate response and communication effectively.

Student volunteers will be evacuated from the high school to Vista Middle School, which will serve as the reunification center for the exercise.

As in all criminal matters we must wait until a formal forensic investigation has been conducted and then, on the weight of evidence, the responsible authority must lay charges against the suspect/s. Anyway, the hysterical outbursts of Abbott are ill thought out, made up as he goes along, peppered with obfuscation when he is questioned on these outbursts and totally irresponsible for an Australian PM who is conveniently forgetting the crash site is in the middle of a war zone. Unless he has forgotten or has never been to war, I can personally remind the PM that the usual civil structures, emergency services, legal and police services and authorities DO NOT EXIST IN A WAR ZONE IN THE WAY THEY EXIST IN PEACETIME……..KT

If you want to hide something in plain view, exaggerate it to the point it becomes extreme and convert it to a conspiracy theory. This is a very standard in how to create propaganda and if you keep saying a lie, its becomes the truth to many without ever having to prove anything. To uncover the truth, takes digging. This I have discovered both in politics as well as market fundamentals.

The two big conspiracy theories to be exaggerated that cover up the truth are the 911 WTC Attack and the Kennedy Assassination. With the former, people take it to the extreme and claim there was not even an attack by terrorists and the whole thing was made up. Sorry, there was an attack and the government knew it was coming and allowed it to for three purposes

US Considers Bombing Oil Pipelines a ‘Viable Option’

Top State Department officials Julieta Valis Noyes, discussing the US concerns with ISIS oil revenue, has revealed that the administration considers attacking oil pipelines in Syria a “viable” military option.

US warplanes have been attacking oil refineries and whatnot in ISIS territory in Syria, but attacking pipelines outright would be a huge move, with analysts warning the precedent it sets would be horrible.

If Syria won;t sell their oil for the dollar, we’ll just make sure they won’t sell oil at all!” — Official White Horse Souse

 

 

George Soros and his Kind are Evil, Mass Murdering Monsters.

You got all kinds of evil running loose in these times. By definition, these are evil times, being as it is the Kali Yuga. The very worst of us profit without reserve and the best of us are hammered into the pavement. There’s supposed to be some kind of justice in this but… those of us who are within the constraints of single lifetimes and lacking the panorama view of the realized, are hard pressed to see it. It’s there somewhere. Of course, I’m speaking only for those of us that believe in something. For those of us that believe in nothing, except ones own blind, naked ignorance, the appearance of justice is nowhere to be seen. There’s one thing we can certainly presume is true and that is that we will find out at some point, even if… in the cases of those who believe nothing, they find nothing. It might be that that is how it works; to each according to what they do or do not believe.

“I think it is interesting at this time when we have so little trust in our political figures, where ordinary people have so little trust in their media, we have to remain open-minded to any kind of possibility,” said Brand.

“Do you trust the American government? Do you trust the British government? What I do think is very interesting is the relationship that the Bush family have had for a long time with the Bin Laden family.

“What I do think is very interesting is the way that even the BBC report the events in Ottawa to subtly build an anti-Islamic narrative. I think that’s very interesting.

“I think it’s interesting the way these events are used to enforce more controls on us.”

New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Toughen Ebola Quarantine Rules After Doctor Case

The New York doctor who tested positive for Ebola wasn’t required to quarantine himself when he returned to New York City after treating Ebola patients in Guinea. Instead, Dr. Craig Allen Spencer went about his life, hitting a popular restaurant and bowling alley before his diagnosis — and sending health officials scrambling in the aftermath.

But the rules on quarantines are changing.

She had no symptoms—but after being put in isolation, she developed a fever.

CDC Responds Rapidly to New York Ebola Case

When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention learned that a doctor in New York City likely had Ebola on Thursday, it didn’t wait.

CDC is still being reactive rather than proactive. They are playing catch up, waiting until a patient appears and racing to the rescue (in full view of the media cameras) after the patient has already potentially infected others. We are in a race against Ebola and to judge from Africa, Ebola is winning. And in a race like this there is no second place, only dead last!

BEX ALERT – Ebola crisis rekindles concerns about secret research in Russian military labs

The 1996 incident might have been forgotten except for the pathogen involved — a highly lethal strain of Ebola virus — and where the incident occurred: inside a restricted Russian military lab that was once part of the Soviet Union’s biological weapons program. Years ago, the same facility in the Moscow suburb of Sergiev Posad cultivated microbes for use as tools of war. Today, much of what goes on in the lab remains unknown.

Oh yes, let’s all blame the Russians. Let us forget that the US has a biological weapons program. Let us forget that US law allows the Department of Defense to conduct biological warfare tests on US citizens without their knowledge and that there have been several well-documented accidents involving deaths from such tests! Let us forget that according to Professor Francis Boyle, a US biological warfare expert, that the NIH was been experimenting with splicing Ebola with the common cold to create a powerful biological weapon. Let us forget that a vaccine to protect “the good guys” from that weapon was being tested at a secret biological warfare laboratory in the hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone, where scientists from USAMRIID and Tulane University carried out research that is illegal in the US. Let us forget that last January the Kenema facility received $140 million, partly paid for by the US Department of Defense, to conduct human trials of that Ebola vaccine. Let us forget that vaccines made from attenuated viruses can and have reverted to full potency after injection, causing, rather than preventing the illness the vaccine is designed for. Let us forget that the US Government mandated swine flu vaccinations in 1976 killed fifty times more people than the flu itself did. Let us forget that the 1918 pandemic was called the “Spanish Flu” to obfuscate the fact that the illness erupted on a US military base at Camp Funston (now Fort Riley) during tests of an experimental vaccine. Let us forget about National Security Study Memorandum 200, a Nixon administration research project run by Henry Kissinger that set as official US policy the covert depopulation of resource-rich areas of the third world, in order to gain access to those resources. And let us forget that the government of Sierra Leone has concluded that the current Ebola outbreak centered on that lab at Kenema and has since ordered it closed. Let’s just trust the same government and media that told us Saddam had nuclear weapons, and blame the Russians, blame the Russians, blame the Russians!

Shim was traveling in a rental car back to her hotel after reporting from the Turkish town of Suruc near the Syrian border, when the car was allegedly struck by a heavy vehicle, killing Shim.

Sears recently confirmed reports that it was planning to close more stores and lay off workers. The company, which has currently has 800 namesake stores and 1,100 Kmart stores, has lost $6 billion since 2012. Suppliers are growing concerned that they won’t receive payments for merchandise.

 

 

Kiev Elections Can’t Sanitise State of Mob Rule

In the paraphrased words of Abraham Lincoln, no electoral process can sanitize the glaring fact of Kiev’s rule of the mob, by the mob, for the mob.

The Kiev regime’s parliamentary elections this weekend are set to go ahead amid an atmosphere of rampant political street violence and intimidation – and that’s not in the war-torn eastern part of Ukraine. Poroshenko denies the bitter reality of violence that has engulfed all of Ukraine under the Western-sponsored regime change operation in his country.

The parliamentary elections were called in June by the then elected President Petro Poroshenko as a way of legitimizing the illegal coup against the Ukrainian government that occurred four months previously with the support of the American Central Intelligence Agency.

Political parties that might have been considered in alliance because of their support for the coup against the Ukrainian government in February are now being caught up in an anarchic state of hoodlum vendettas.

Poe is the director of elections in Pulaski County and said the voter who reported the mishap casted her ballot at the Jess Odom Community Center in Maumelle. Poe decided to test the voting machines himself and show how it works. He demonstrates saying, “I’m just going to press that. You see there’s a little checkmark.

The Met Office said it is watching a sun spot which is currently thought to be the biggest detected in 25 years.

Britain closer to quitting EU

“It is not acceptable, it is an appalling way to behave,” Mr Cameron said.

Calls for the UK to withdraw from the EU intensified yesterday following the cash demand, which will cost every family in the country £65.

And he admitted the latest insult to UK taxpayers – with the bill due to be paid by December 1st – was undermining his drive to keep Britain in the EU.

The girl had travelled with her grandmother hundreds of kilometres by bus from Guinea via Mali’s capital to the western town of Kayes, where she was diagnosed on Thursday. Health workers were scrambling to trace hundreds of potential contacts in a bid to prevent Ebola taking hold in Mali.

Google VP’s 135,908-foot leap breaks world record for highest free-fall parachute jump

The last time someone made a leap like this, the entire world knew about it; Felix Baumgartner’s thrilling jump from the edge of space was streamed live over the internet as it happened. Baumgartner became the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall. His dive was from an altitude of 127,852 feet, which at the time also set a new record for highest free-fall parachute jump — a record that Eustace surpassed today.

Eustace apparently declined Google’s offers to help, seeking to avoid the spectacle and frenzy that surrounded Baumgartner’s jump. Instead, he worked quietly for three years on the self-funded project — outside of Google’s halls — to make his mark and shatter the altitude record by falling from the stratosphere.

The Document Dump that Could Kill Hillary’s Presidential Hopes

Although Mrs. Clinton is still embroiled in scandal, the overwhelming amount of information that has been released by the National Archives could strike a serious blow to her chances of becoming president.

A good deal of America doesn’t believe Hillary Clinton when she declares that she and the rest of the administration did everything they could to prevent the attacks on Benghazi from taking place.

But while her current behavior is classless and abusive, voters will hopefully see that the pattern of behavior is nothing new as scandal from years gone by will be rearing its ugly head.

That’s because the National Archives will be releasing over 10,000 pages worth of documents covering the former first lady’s time in office.

90 percent of Americans are poorer today than in 1987

The American Dream is slipping further away from the vast majority of Americans than it has in a quarter century. Now 90 percent of US households are poorer than they were in 1987, according to both a new study and the head of the Federal Reserve.

“The new, harsh reality is that the bottom 90 percent of households are poorer today than they were in 1987,” Matt O’Brien wrote in the Washington Post Wonkblog, citing data from a new National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) paper on U.S. wealth inequality, which he says is based on tax data. “It’s been a lost 25 years for the bottom 90 percent, but a lost 15 for the next 9 percent, too. That’s right: altogether, the bottom 99 percent are worth less today than they were in 1998.”

Putin: Russia’s plans to solve Ukraine’s debt problem rejected

President Putin said Moscow offered numerous solutions to Ukrainian gas debts which have been rejected by Kiev and the IMF as complicated and difficult procedures. He expects a solution to be found soon otherwise it could lead to a crisis.

Talking about Russian gas delivery to Europe at the Valdai international discussion club meeting on Friday the President explained all the concessions Russia has made and is ready to make to see gas flow into Ukraine and urged the Western partners to co-operate.

Ukraine’s debt to Russia is 5.6 billion dollars for gas delivery and 3 billion dollars of credit. Russia has revised the sum of the debt and now demands only 4.5 billion. In January Ukraine is to receive a tranche from the IMF. The final sum will be reconsidered by the IMF after October, 26.

Putin said Russia suggested several variants to Kiev and IMF of how the debt should be covered.

Within less than two days, rhetoric has risen unusually high for Canada in the wake of what have been called “terror attacks,” bringing terrorism home along with fresh demands for new police powers.

Snowden’s Motivation: What the Internet Was Like Before It Was Being Watched, and How We Can Get There Again

Laura Poitras’ riveting new documentary about mass surveillance gives an intimate look into the motivations that guided Edward Snowden, who sacrificed his career and risked his freedom to expose mass surveillance by the NSA. CITIZENFOUR, which debuts on Friday, has many scenes that explore the depths of government surveillance gone awry and the high-tension unfolding of Snowden’s rendezvous with journalists in Hong Kong. One of the most powerful scenes in the film comes when Snowden discusses his motivation for the disclosures and points to his fundamental belief in the power and promise of the Internet:

US threatens Turkish and Kurdish middlemen in ISIS oil bonanza

A US treasury official has warned Turkish and Kurdish middlemen against trading in Islamic State (ISIS) oil by threatening to slap US sanctions on those caught dealing with the extremist group.

US officials have discreetly criticised the illicit Turkish and Kurdish trade in oil from ISIS, which is also known as IS and ISIL, but comments from US Treasury Undersecretary David Cohen in Washington on Thursday, were the clearest warning so far.

“Last month, ISIL was selling oil at substantially discounted prices to a variety of middlemen, including some from Turkey,” Cohen said. “It also appears that some of the oil emanating from territory where ISIL operates has been sold to Kurds in Iraq, and then resold into Turkey.”

The DEA Once Turned A 14-Year-Old Into A Drug Kingpin. Welcome To The War On Drugs

Just months after Edward Snowden unmasked the National Security Agency’s massive domestic spying program, The New York Times broke news of the Hemisphere Project, which pairs experts from telecommunications giant AT&T with federal and local anti-drug officials, including DEA agents. It gives law enforcement officials access to “every call that passes through an AT&T switch — not just those made by AT&T customers — and includes calls dating back 26 years,” according to the Times report. That’s around 4 billion call records every day, each logged with information on the location of callers. The official government slideshow describing the program suggested it had been helpful in tracking drug dealers who frequently change phones, or use disposable “burner” phones.

MASS VIOLENCE LINKED TO PRESCRIPTION PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS – A RESOURCE PAGE

Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Colombine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold’s medical records have never been made available to the public.

Jeff Weise, age 16, had been prescribed 60 mg/day of Prozac (three times the average starting dose for adults!) when he shot his grandfather, his grandfather’s girlfriend and many fellow students at Red Lake, Minnesota. He then shot himself. 10 dead, 12 wounded.

Cory Baadsgaard, age 16, Wahluke (Washington state) High School, was on Paxil (which caused him to have hallucinations) when he took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. He has no memory of the event.

Chris Fetters, age 13, killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac.

Christopher Pittman, age 12, murdered both his grandparents while taking Zoloft.

Reposted in light of the school shooting in Washington State in which the shooter has reportedly committed suicide following the rampage, a classic pattern seen in SSRI triggered violence.

“… the only way to fully comprehend U.S. policies toward the third world is to posit …”the threat of a good example.”Insurgencies in the third world do not challenge U.S. military security or even, ultimately, investments by U.S. corporations… What they represent is the possibility that emerging nations may demonstrate by example that the United States may not be the last word in democracy, freedom, and opportunity. That threat is much greater if weighed from the perspective of those who see it in their interest to preserve unchanged the present U.S. economic and political order.” — Frances Moore Lappe’, Rachel Shuman, and Kevin Danaher, authors

“We won’t pay,” furious Cameron tells EU over surprise budget

In a vivid display of public fury at European Union technocrats, British Prime Minister David Cameron refused to pay a surprise 2.1-billion-euro bill on Friday as EU leaders ordered an urgent review of how the budget figures were arrived at.

As Eurosceptics at home leapt on news that the EU executive — branded a “thirsty vampire” — had demanded a sum worth about one seventh of London’s annual payment after a major statistical review of national incomes, Cameron demanded action from fellow leaders at a summit calling the bill “completely unacceptable”.

He found some sympathy – a visibly furious Cameron told a news conference that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi had also lambasted “bureaucrats without a heart”, who made it harder to persuade citizens of the Union’s value.

If England refuses to pay, the whole pyramid will collapse, triggering an estimated $95 trillion in credit default swaps sold my Wall Street, for which they do not have the cash to pay. So, will Obama now declare war on Great Britain to force them back into the obedience of the private central bankers?

US opposes post-Fukushima nuclear safety proposal

The United States is reportedly trying to fend off an attempt out of Switzerland to change a multi-national nuclear safety agreement in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan.

Reuters and Bloomberg News both reported this week that Swiss officials are seeking addendums to the 77-nation Convention on Nuclear Safety, or CNS, so that countries around the globe are compelled to upgrade energy facilities in hopes of preventing fallout like the one spawned by the Fukushima meltdown more than three years ago.

But while Reuters says the Swiss-led initiative is tentatively being backed by other European countries, the newswire alleges that energy officials in the US, Russia and Canada are all opposed to the measure, which would likely increase industry costs.

BEX ALERT – Colloidal silver and other Ebola scams: ‘Fear opens wallets and closes minds’

Of course, silver nanoparticles are not highly effective against Ebola – they are not effective at all. Nor is homeopathic rattesnake venom, or oil extracted from sandalwood or cinnamon bark. Nor is vitamin C, in any way other than being simply part of a healthy diet.

The corporate media launches a smear campaign to keep people giving their money to the giant pharmaceutical corporations which spend much of that money buying advertisements in that same corporate media. The fact is that there is a great deal is supporting research into nano-silver as an anti-bacterial and anti-viral going back to the days of the Black Death right up to US Government research which states that nano-silver is effective against hemorrhagic fevers, including Ebola! But nano-silver cannot be patented and used to extort obscene profits from the public, so it is not only ignored but attacked by the obedient corporate media! This is the same government and corporate media that told you Saddam had nuclear weapons. This is the same government and corporate media that told you back in 2000 that human-caused global warming meant there would be no more snow and ice in winter! This is the same government and corporate media that told you about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana Harbor, and golly gee whiz trust us there were no weapons on board the Lusitania. Are you willing to bet your life that same government and corporate media are suddenly telling you the truth?

Hands off our hookers’ and dope dealers’ money, U.K. tells E.U.

The European Union has ordered the U.K. to pay an extra €2.1 billion ($2.65% billion) into its central budget by December, once again inflaming the British sense of grievance at the perceived machinations of unelected Eurocrats in Brussels.

Cameron himself tweeted that he was “angry at the sudden presentation of a €2 billion bill,” adding: “It’s an appalling way to behave and I won’t be paying it on Dec. 1.”

In one sense, at least, they are right. It is unfair, because one thing is for sure: whatever happens, it won’t be U.K.’s coke dealers and hookers who end up paying that €2.1 billion.

New Home Sales rose a magnificent (seasonally-adjusted annualized rate) 18% in August – the biggest monthly rise since January 1992 albeit with a 16.3 90% confidence interval, meaning the final number may well be +1.7%. At 504k, new home sales are back at May 2008 levels (though obviously massively below the 1.4 million homes sold at the peak in 2005). As a reminder, May’s 504K new home sales print was later revised later to 458K. But even more stunning, new home sales in The West rose a mind-numbing 50% in August (and up 84.4% YoY – nearly double).

 

 

Syrian army recaptures town in western Syria: state TV

The Syrian army has regained control of a town on the highway linking Hama and Aleppo cities in western Syria after months of battles with insurgents, state television and a monitoring group said on Friday.

The recapture of Morek, 30km (19 miles) north of Hama, is part of the military’s campaign to shore up territory in the west of the country stretching north from Damascus as U.S.-led forces bomb Islamist militants elsewhere in Syria.

The army “took full control of the town of Morek in the northern Hama countryside and killed a number of terrorists and mercenaries,” state television said in a news alert, citing a military source.

People Are Trying to Sell Cinnamon Bark as an Ebola Cure

Marion Nestle reports that several supplement manufacturers are selling vitamins that promise to prevent or treat Ebola. The claims caught the attention of the FDA, which has issued warning letters to three of the manufacturers: Natural Solutions Foundation, Young Living, and DoTERRA International LLC. The agency lists specific claims it finds worrisome; for example, on a Young Living consultant’s website, “Ebola Virus can not live in the presence of cinnamon bark.”

Despite the WHO authorizing the use of unproven treatments to deal with the Ebola the reality is that only treatments from the giant pharmaceutical corporations are being allowed. The FDA, still looking at Ebola from the economic point of view, is coming down hard on anyone offering treatments from which the pharmaceutical corporations cannot make the profit.

We know the FDA is blocking use of even mention of nano silver products wherever they can, despite the fact that both Nigeria and Sierra Leone have told the US Government to shove their regulations (possibly in response to the growing awareness that the US Government may have triggered the Ebola outbreak in Africa with a botched vaccine trial) and are treating Ebola patients with nano-silver and reporting positive results.

That being said, it was observed during the 1918 flu pandemic (also triggered by a botched vaccine trial) that workers at a factory that processed cinnamon for bakeries did not come down with the flu. This triggered widespread use of cinnamon, usually mixed with milk, which did in fact lower the fever and reduce symptoms of those already infected with the flu. Most naturally occurring antibiotics are broad spectrum, which means they are effective against a wide variety of infections, whereas modern pharmaceutical antibiotics are designed to be effective against specific infectious agents and are usually useless against others.

So do your own research and make your own choices.

After all, are you willing to bet your life the government, media, and pharmaceutical corporations are telling you the truth?

CANADA: Conservatives mulling legislation making it illegal to condone terrorist acts online

OTTAWA, Canada (National Post) There is frustration in government, and among law enforcement agencies, that the authorities can’t detain or arrest people who express sympathy for atrocities committed overseas and who may pose a threat to public safety, one Conservative MP said. “Do we need new offences? If so which?”

Sources suggest the government is likely to bring in new hate speech legislation that would make it illegal to claim terrorist acts are justified online.

The Conservative MP said the new legislation was crafted before this week’s events and is not “trauma tainted.”
_____________________________________________________________________________

Fortunately, the relationship between the Harper regime and the Supreme Court of Canada is so acrimonious that this legislation, if passed, will never see the light of day.

FTDI admits to bricking innocent users’ chips in silent update

Hardware hackers and security researchers are furious at chip maker FTDI for issuing a silent update that bricks cloned FTDI FT232 [USB to UART] chips.

The chip is extremely common on a wide variety of devices and there is no way of knowing at this time which devices have cloned chips — and the tainted supply chain could hit anyone.

FTDI appears to have used a recent Windows update to deliver the driver update to brick all cloned FTDI FT232s.

FTDI’s surprise new driver reprograms the USB PID to 0, killing the chips instantly.

The hardware hackers at Hack A Day first reported that a recent driver update deployed over Windows Update is bricking cloned versions of the very common FTDI FT232 [USB to UART] chip.

In response to increasing anger and criticism from security researchers on Twitter, FTDI admitted using the remote kill switch and is adamant that this move is necessary to fight counterfeiting.

Oh yes, let’s punish the end user who may not even know his product has a counterfeit chip by killing his hardware!

Does FTDI not understand that the counterfeiters will go on selling their chips anyway not caring if they eventually fail? Look at the flood of fake 128G SD cards hitting the market. These are actually 8G chips reprogrammed to identify themselves as 128G to the computer. Every time a particular brand is identified as phony, the counterfeiters simply change their company name, change the packaging, and go right on selling their products, not caring that they will not actually work. FTDI’s stunt will harm a lot of innocent end users and will not stop the counterfeiters. It won’t even slow them down. Someone needs to be fired for this mistake!

House oversight panel examines response to Ebola crisis

The chairman of a House oversight panel on Friday slammed President Obama’s choice of Ron Klain as his new Ebola czar.

“Sadly, in my opinion, (Klain’s appointment) shows the administration has on one hand recognized the missteps (in handling the Ebola crisis), but on the other hand is not prepared to put a known leader or a medical professional in place,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

This is pure political grandstanding ahead of the elections. Congress is trying to act like they are in control of this situation, and they are not. The virus is.

Congress, like the Obama administration and CDC, are playing catch-up.

As for an Ebola czar, Obama picked a spin-doctor to keep the public calm, keep them going to the shopping malls, keep them focused on the wars, and make sure they showed up to the voting booths next month. Personally I think Dr. Ron Paul would have been the ideal choice, being both a medical doctor himself and knowing how DC works. Klain didn’t even show up for today’s hearing!

Obama claims executive privilege over 15,000 Fast and Furious docs

The Obama administration is claiming executive privilege over more than 15,000 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious, including correspondence between Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, according to records received Wednesday night by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Last month, a federal judge ordered the Justice Department to release to Judicial Watch the list of documents, known as a “Vaughn index,” that it is withholding from the public, calling its requests for further delays “unconvincing.”

The 1,307-page Vaughn index lists 15,662 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that the Obama administration is asserting executive privilege over—the first time that full list and description of the records has been released.

Basically Obama just told Judicial Watch, the courts, and the American people to fuck off!

A Silicon Valley technology firm flew eight workers 9,000 miles from Bangalore, India to California to install some computers and continued to pay them in rupees.

The eight workers were employed to move computers for Electronics for Imaging Inc from their old headquarters in Foster City to their new building in California.

During the three-month contract, the workers were paid the equivalent of $1.21-an-hour for a 120-hour week.

 

 

City Notorious For Revenue Schemes and Aggressive Traffic Tickets Under Fire After Another Kid Dies Due To Lack of Crossing Guards- City Refuses To Pay for Them

The city of Upland. CA, which is notorious for their revenue-agent officers aggressively ticketing the city’s residents, is facing harsh criticism after yet another child died in a crosswalk near an elementary school. Upland stopped paying for crossing guards in 2009. The city, which has been successfully sued for violating the civil rights of 2nd Amendment advocates and even had one of their police officers ruled officially “incompetent to testify” in CA Superior Court of Appeals, has now changed their tune and claimed that “in the wake of the death the city would work closely with the school district to re-evaluate pedestrian safety.”

FLASHBACK – U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist

Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus? Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.” Is it a fact? Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U. S.

How Ebola doctor roamed New York while he was contagious: Alarm spreads among residents after medic passed through vast swathes of city with deadly virus

New Yorkers have flooded Twitter in panic revealing their fears after visiting the bowling alley and taking the subway at the same time.

Another said: ‘Now that Ebola is here, I aint takin the subway no more…’

And one wrote: ‘Son Ebola found it’s way to NY? I’m sick’

THE EBOLA RESOURCE PAGE

As you already know, there is a major outbreak of the Ebola virus in Africa which is starting to spread to other parts of the world. It is too soon to panic, but not too soon to be concerned and to start educating yourself as to the problem and taking some common-sense precautions.

The Turin Shroud is just a medieval prop that was used in Easter plays, claims expert

It’s a debate that divides people the world over: Is the Turin shroud a genuine relic or just an elaborate fake?

According to one expert the answer is very much the latter, and he is baffled that no one has noticed irregularities before.

He says that aside from radiocarbon dating in 1988 showing it originates from the 14th century, there is evidence that it has been altered over time and that it was used specifically during medieval Easter rituals.

Looking through historical texts, he found no mention of the shroud before 1355 – somewhat odd for an item of such apparent religious significance.

BEX ALERT – Can You Get Ebola From a Bowling Ball?

Although the surface of a shared bowling ball is a likely place to find germs — and some people avoid bowling for this very reason — it is extremely unlikely that Ebola could be passed that way. There is no evidence that it has been passed, as colds or flu sometimes are, by touching surfaces that someone else touched after sneezing into their hand. Ebola is normally passed through contact with blood, vomit or diarrhea.

I guess the NY Times gets a lot of ad revenues from the city’s bowling lanes. But the reality is that while CDC is still pushing the “direct contact only” meme, CDC actually found that Ebola can survive on contaminated surfaces for days … including the surface and finger holes of bowling balls. The holes especially, devoid of strong light, are perfect places for Ebola to hide.

I am not surprised that comments were not allowed on this article.

 

 

The Big Leak -World War Two

Blazoned in huge black letters across page one of the December 4, 1941, issue of the Chicago Tribune was the headline: F.D.R.’S WAR PLANS! The Times Herald, the Tribune ’s Washington, D.C., ally, carried a similarly fevered banner. In both papers Chesly Manly, the Tribune’s Washington correspondent, revealed what President Franklin D. Roosevelt had repeatedly denied: that he was planning to lead the United States into war against Germany. The source of the reporter’s information was no less than a verbatim copy of Rainbow Five, the top-secret war plan drawn up at FDR’s order by the Joint Board of the Army and Navy.

 

 

FDR Should Have Been Impeached for Pearl Harbor

Ever since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, people have surmised that President Franklin Roosevelt knew that the attack was coming and intentionally let it happen. After all, it is undisputed that U.S. officials had, at the very least, broken Japan’s diplomatic code and were reading the instructions that Japanese officials were sending to their diplomats in Washington in the days and hours leading up to the attack.

Propaganda 101 – How The Pentagon Is Trying To Rewrite Vietnam War History

In case you weren’t aware, the Pentagon is set to roll out a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War. Personally, it’s hard to get excited about commemorating an event that led to the death of over 58,000 American soldiers and more than a million Vietnamese, particularly since much of it was the direct result of well documented lies and deception, such as the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

What’s worse, the Pentagon intends to rewrite history by whitewashing this period of civil unrest and government shame from American history. The propaganda is so blatant that it has resulted in many of the era’s most well known protestors and activists to come together in order to stop it.

Many would remember the infamous media picture of the little naked Vietnamese girl running down a road with skin falling off her body after being burned by exploding US WP rounds. Sometimes during the Vietnam War we used WP to adjust rounds onto a target because we could see the WP burst in the thick jungle areas whereas we could not see High Explosive rounds burst…………..KT

50 Percent Of American Workers Make Less Than 28,031 Dollars A Year

If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make $20,000. So the fact that 39 percent of all workers made less than that amount is rather telling.

Western Sponsors Liable for Kiev Basket Case

Washington is even more circumspect than Brussels on the matter of providing hard cash to Kiev, as opposed to lots of hot-air promises of nebulous aid. One gets the feeling that the Western sponsors know full well that this regime is a basket case. Nevertheless, these Western sponsors are liable for the basket case that they created.

Since Washington and Brussels shunted the geopolitical tracks in the first place to create the financial train wreck that is now manifestly the Ukraine, you would think that there might be a sense of obligation on Western governments to salvage the mess. Not a bit of it, it seems.

Furthermore, the train wreck is careening dangerously into the Russian economy. But still, the Western governments adopt an attitude that Moscow must pay for the damages.

“Britain, in my view, has been leading the way. The action we are taking in Sierra Leone where we are committing well over £100 million, 750 troops, training 800 members of health staff, providing 700 beds – we are doing a huge amount.

82 per cent agreed that “when private companies get contracts to provide government programs, the public loses control over services people depend on.”

Doctor who treated Ebola patients rushed to NYC hospital

The Big Apple may have its first case of Ebola.

Dr. Craig Spencer, who returned to New York City from Africa 10 days ago, was rushed in an ambulance with a police escort from his Harlem home to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday, sources said.

He was suffering from Ebola-like symptoms — a 103-degree fever and nausea, sources said.

While he was in Africa, the doctor had been treating Ebola patients in Guinea, sources said.

He’s undergoing testing at Bellevue to see if he has the deadly virus, sources said.

Doctor: Health Authorities Covering Up Ebola Cases in U.S.

Lawrenzi said that shortly after the arrival of patient zero – Thomas Eric Duncan – in the United States, he was told by a doctor at Truman Lakewood Medical Center in Kansas City they had taken in a possible Ebola patient who had a high fever and was bleeding out of all his orifices having recently returned from West Africa.

The following day, Lawrenzi was told by the doctor that the patient had “disappeared” against medical advice, but that he wouldn’t have been able to leave on his own given his medical condition.

The day after the patient disappeared, a meeting was called for anyone who had contact with the patient. Doctors and other medical workers were told that the patient had malaria.

A second possible Ebola patient was then admitted to Research Medical Center in Kansas City the following day but also quickly “disappeared,” with hospital bosses claiming he had typhoid, according to Lawrenzi.

The undated video, posted by the unofficial IS mouthpiece “a3maq news”, sees a jihadist showing several boxes of munitions with English-language markings, with a parachute spread out on the ground beside.

Although it is unclear what was the bundle shown in the video, the militant explains that “this is some of the military equipment that was dropped by American forces.”

Since when do American forces support the Kurds with DEACTIVATED GRENADES?

Obama Is 100% Opposed to Accountability. But the Problem Goes Even Deeper …

U.S. President Barack Obama has blocked accountability, everywhere he can. He did it for the top officials who had caused illegal tortures to be used by the Government. He did it for the top officials who had caused mega-banks to crash in 2008 (whose crimes have, in turn, led to taxpayer-bailouts of the banks that they ran and often still run, all courtesy of Bush-Obama). He did it for the top officials who had caused a certain country, which posed no threat to us, to be invaded by us in 2003, and subsequently to produce over $3 trillion in economic losses to the U.S., plus thousands of pointless deaths, and millions of unnecessary refugees, and the resulting development of today’s fanatical ISIS: this country that was raped by the U.S. is, of course, Iraq.

Texas jails are eliminating in-person visitation and requiring instead the use of a video visitation system sold by Dallas-based Securus Technologies…Securus charges callers as much as a dollar a minute to use its video services, and jails get a 20 to 2

There’s nothing nice about jail. The food stinks. There’s nothing to do. People are in a bad mood. The best you can hope for is to get out quickly with minimal hassle. One of the few things you have to look forward to is a visit from a friend or a loved one—a brief face-to-face connection to remind you that the world is waiting on the other side of the glass. But some Texas jails are eliminating in-person visitation and requiring instead the use of a video visitation system sold by Dallas-based Securus Technologies. Critics say it’s an outrageous profiteering scheme that has no policy rationale and could actually deteriorate security at jails.

Simply stated, take this aspect out of any discussion featuring Netanyahu and there is nothing left to discuss…For ‘Bibi’–the latest incarnation in a long line of King David wannabes–war is his beating heart, (if he has one) his lifeblood (if he has any) and the electrical current that powers his mental functions, if indeed any exist.

Hackers use Ebola outbreak to trick users into downloading malware

CRIMMINALS are taking advantage of the recent Ebola outbreak to trick unsuspecting web users into downloading malware sent in emails that purport to come from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Uncovered by security researchers at Trustwave, the malware was flagged when it appeared that criminals had crafted bogus WHO emails encouraging people to open a .RAR attachment to find out how they can protect themselves against Ebola.

Trustwave said that once the attachment has been clicked on, it downloads malware onto the victim’s machine.

 

 

Corruption at the Heart of Mexico’s Drug War – True not only in Mexico, but in the United States as well.

A Mexican mayor and his wife masterminded the recent disappearance of 43 student teachers and Mexico’s attorney general has issued arrest warrants for them.

The students went missing on 26 September from Iguala in the south-western state of Guerrero after they clashed with police. The incident sent shockwaves across Mexico and undermined President Enrique Peña Nieto’s claims that Mexico is getting safer under his watch.

So far 52 arrests have been made in relation to the matter, including dozens of police actively working with a gang called Guerreros Unidos, or United Warriors. The gang’s leader, Sidronio Casarrubias, was arrested last week.

If the Mexican cartels start to cooperate wth authorities, this could blow the lid off of Fast and Furious!

 

 

Revealed: Muslim convert who shot dead Canadian soldier is the ‘privately-educated son of country’s immigration chief, had his passport revoked and has ‘links to Syrian terrorist’

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Muslim convert who fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo – a 24-year-old father standing guard at Ottawa’s War Memorial, was a petty criminal and the son of a leading Canadian immigration official, it has been revealed.

Born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall and raised in Laval, just north of Montreal, the young man lived a quiet childhood of private schools and suburban homes, with a mother who was a high ranking federal employee.

Then, after years of run-ins with the law, he converted to Islam.

This “terrorist” story is starting to devolve into another spoiled rich kid gone wrong soap opera!

 

 

CIA Apparently ‘Impersonated’ Senate Staffers To Gain Access To Documents On Shared Drives

According to sources familiar with the CIA inspector general report that details the alleged abuses by agency officials, CIA agents impersonated Senate staffers in order to gain access to Senate communications and drafts of the Intelligence Committee investigation. These sources requested anonymity because the details of the agency’s inspector general report remain classified.

“If people knew the details of what they actually did to hack into the Senate computers to go search for the torture document, jaws would drop. It’s straight out of a movie,” said one Senate source familiar with the document.

 

 

Mexico: Riots and looting rock Guerrero with students still missing

Protests turned violent in Guerrero Wednesday as demonstrators looted shops and smashed windows, leaving devastation and blood stains. An ambulance and several shops have been damaged. Local police have made several arrests.

The scenes follow teachers setting the town hall of Iguala ablaze in anger. The violence is ostensibly a response to the continued case of the 43 missing students, who went missing over three weeks ago.

The students of the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training College in Guerrero disappeared on September 26 in Iguala, after a confrontation with local police. The original confrontation left six people dead and 25 injured. They have been missing ever since.

List of the World’s Richest Countries; America’s Special Role in It

The world’s richest countries are the ones where the median wealth per person is the highest. This system ranks nations truly according to the most-representative person in each given nation — the person who is in the exact middle of that nation’s population in terms of per-person wealth. Consequently, for example, if a Bill Gates or other billionaire relocates into a certain country, no matter how small its population is, this won’t change that country’s ranking, whereas it could raise the country’s ranking if the ranking-system were according to the mean wealth per person (i.e., dividing everybody’s total wealth by the total population-number).

EXCLUSIVE: Was Ebola Accidentally Released from a Bioweapons Lab In West Africa?

“More than 200 incidents of loss or release of bioweapons agents from U.S. laboratories are reported each year. This works out to more than four per week,” said Richard Ebright, a biosafety expert at Rutgers university in New Jersey, who testified before Congress last month at a hearing about CDC’s lab mistakes.

The only thing unusual about the CDC’s recent anthrax and bird flu lab incidents, Ebright said, is that the public found out about them. “The 2014 CDC anthrax event became known to the public only because the number of persons requiring medical evaluation was too high to conceal,” he said.

North Korea to Bar Foreign Tourists Over Ebola Fears

North Korea has announced that it will not accept any foreign tourists beginning Friday because of fear of the Ebola virus, three agencies that take tourists to the isolated country said on Thursday.

The news came as the country said it was stepping up inspections and quarantine measures at its airport, borders and ports to guard against the spread of the deadly virus, which has killed thousands of people in the latest outbreak.

“Three days ago, they said that anybody who’s been to West Africa would have to provide a doctor’s certificate stating that they don’t have Ebola,” said Gareth Johnson of Young Pioneer Tours, a travel operator based in China. “And then today, they just said no foreign tourists at all.”

Amber Vinson’s family says she is Ebola-free, but Emory and CDC officials have yet to confirm statement

A statement released Wednesday evening by the family Amber Vinson, one of two Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas nurses diagnosed with Ebola, says she appears to be free of the disease. That was news to a spokesperson for Emory University Hospital, to which Vinson was transferred one week ago.

“Amber is steadily regaining her strength and her spirits are high,” says the statement sent to media by Steven Jumper of the Washington, D.C.-based PR firm Ghost Note Agency. “We are overjoyed to announce that, as of yesterday evening, officials at Emory University Hospital and the Centers for Disease Control are no longer able to detect virus in her body. She has also been approved for transfer from isolation. Amber remains under treatment within Emory’s Serious Communicable Diseases Unit.”

When reached by The Dallas Morning News Wednesday evening, Emory spokesperson Janet Christenbury said she was “not aware of that at all.” She said she would provide an update as soon possible.

Okay, so who put out the “news” that Amber was free of Ebola, if neither the hospital nor CDC did it?

9 people, including family of 6, quarantined in Connecticut over Ebola fears

A family of six was quarantined in West Haven, Conn. Wednesday after returning from a trip to West Africa, the city’s health director said.

The office of West Haven Mayor Edward O’Brien said the family, which returned to Connecticut on Saturday, was not showing any signs of Ebola, FoxCT.com reported. They were flagged by Transportation Security Administration officials at John F. Kennedy International Airport because of their travel to West Africa, although officials have not said which country they had been in.

According to the Connecticut Department of Health, the department issued four quarantine orders in the state, involving nine people. None of the individuals are sick and do not present a risk to public health, officials said.

The quarantine is precautionary and will last the standard 21-day period, a time frame during which health officials say symptoms would surface if anyone has contracted the deadly virus.

Claimants placed within the WRAG receive less money than those in the higher ‘Support Group’, who are not required to prepare for work or attend Job Centre interviews, and face the threat of sanctions if they fail to comply with strict requirements.
