THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
“Enemies are necessary for the wheels of the U.S. military machine to turn.” — John Stockwell, former CIA official and author
The joint scandals involving Clinton violating State Department email regulations and all the shady money around the Clinton Foundation have taken a serious toll, especially on her credibility. According to a Pew Poll released Thursday, a full 53% say Clinton is not honest. Only 39% disagree.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received information about the Benghazi attacks on her private email which were later marked “classified” when requested by the U.S. Congress and watchdog groups, according to documents released by the State Department on Friday. The department made public hundreds of emails from Clinton’s private server related to the congressional investigation into the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The emails are only a sliver of the 55,000 pages of emails Clinton gave President Obama’s Department of State, and they don’t include the email scrubbed from her private server.
Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko says he can declare martial law in his country within hours, in case there is an advance on the Ukrainian army’s positions.
The anti-Islam American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) is planning to run an advertising campaign in Washington, DC featuring the cartoon that won the controversial Prophet Mohammed drawing contest in Texas earlier this month.
Critics called the exhibition and contest a provocation.
The chief US negotiator in nuclear talks with the Islamic Republic of Iran will depart her post shortly after the June 30 deadline for a comprehensive nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1.
The good news – if you can call it that: US containerized ocean export activity in April inched up 2.8% from March. It was the first uptick all year, according to the Cass/INTTRA Ocean Freight Index. But in the prior months, the index had plunged to its worst level in the data series going back to the end of the Financial Crisis.
As cancer detection and treatment are now handled in many cases at the genetic level — such as tests for genetic mutations among potential patients — a team of researchers has published a study suggesting professionals not run tests which have yet to be proven relevant to breast, ovarian or other types of cancer.
Bill and Hillary Clinton “earned” — can a mortal earn such stratospheric sums? — “at least $30 million over the last 16 months, mainly from giving paid speeches to corporations, banks and other organizations,” The New York Times reports. “They have now earned more than $125 million on the [lecture] circuit since leaving the White House in 2001.”
This is an important issue. But the big story has little to with what actually matters.
Coverage of the Clintons’ spectacularly lucrative speaking career has focused on how it affects Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign — specifically the political damage caused by the public’s growing perception that Hillary is out of touch with the common man and woman. It is a promising line of inquiry for her detractors (myself included).
Israel has been successful this week in postponing, yet again, the report that shows them attacking the Gaza flotilla aid convoy which had killed eight Turkish
and one US citizen.
In an interview with Press TV, Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst, talks about the dodgy nature of the Israeli regime.
Glenn Greenwald makes veiled comment on 9/11… does he have something…or not?
There’s a double standard when it comes to many conservatives and buying American made cars.
It is often implied that it is patriotic to buy American and practically a betrayal to buy foreign made vehicles. But is it really our patriotic duty to buy inferior products?
Public interest watchdogs say Americans deserve to know what US top trade negotiator Michael Froman ‘has been privately saying to big banks’
All hands on deck for global, economic, corporate dictatorship.
There are dots to connect here. They’re real, and they’re spectacular.
Let me begin with a brief exchange from a 1978 interview, conducted by reporter Jeremiah Novak. He was speaking with two American members of the Trilateral Commission (TC), a group founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and his intellectual flunkey, Zbigniew Brzezinski…
A never-before-seen draft environmental review of AquaBounty Technologies’ (ABTX) genetically engineered (GE) salmon reveals that Canadian government scientists disagree with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on key questions related to the safety and performance of what may be the first GE animal approved for human consumption. In light of these findings, Food & Water Watch, Center for Food Safety, Friends of the Earth and Consumers Union today called on the FDA to terminate its ongoing review of GE salmon.
A new executive order from President Obama could affect property owners. The order institutes new EPA rules, expanding the authority of that agency under the Clean Water Act.
That’s a Big Deal
Low Wages and Unemployment are an Existential Crisis for Millions. If Millions Of Young Americans Don’t Start Earning More Money, They Can’t Afford To Have Children, Or Take Care Of Them Properly, And That Is The End Of Us As A Nation.
Meet Hanna. Hanna wasn’t always hungry – but then Old Spice released its Red Zone Aqua Reef Sweat Defense Solid. Now she’s starving.
“You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country.” – Sen. Bernie Sanders
So, in the event that you’d like to save yourself the bother of reading it in its entirety, I’ll summarize: Stephen Cohen, formerly respected Russia scholar, disagrees with the White House on Ukraine and is therefore a Putin stooge. That’s really the long and short of it.
RFERL laid into Cohen for “defending the Kremlin’s agenda” in the piece which presents an account of his recent debate with Washington Post columnist (and determined neo-con agenda pusher) Anne Applebaum and former world chess champion player Garry Kasparov.
The piece quotes Angela Stent, director of the Center for Russian Studies at Georgetown University, who explains why Cohen’s Kremlin defense crosses the line; because, she says, it’s not just that Cohen is saying he understands Putin’s motivations, which would be semi-okay (maybe, kind of, sort of), but it’s that he actually has taken the position that “Putin is right”.
The U.S. military ‘inadvertently’ shipped live anthrax samples via FedEx — just in time for another Patriot Act vote…again!
British security forces had thousands of agents and informants working inside Northern Ireland paramilitary groups, the BBC’s Panorama has learned.
The undercover operatives were recruited by the Army, MI5 and Special Branch and many were involved in criminality and murder.
Ex-Met Police commissioner Lord Stevens said the agents caused huge problems in Northern Ireland.
In an attempt to broaden their international appeal, the ISIS media machine, Al Hayat, has launched a new “magazine” in Russian.
Consider the geopolitical and foreign policy overtones of this story. If there was any doubt that either Western or Israeli (or both) intelligence agencies are driving the ISIS public relations zeitgeist – those doubts should be put at rest now…
Apparently his pen and his phone are pretty much worthless this time.
President Obama wants the Orwellian, unconstitutional USA Freedom Act passed by Sunday. Or else.
And Obama didn’t mince words. He said if the Senators don’t pass this “necessary” Patriot Act extension, we the American people simply will not be safe.
The world is anticipating a new global reality with huge implications: China’s yuan is poised to get recognized as a global reserve currency.
The IMF just gave is approval to bump China’s global status via the yuan:
China’s yuan currency, which Washington has long alleged was manipulated, is “no longer undervalued”, the International Monetary Fund said Tuesday.
One week ago, the world was not exactly shocked to learn that after Germany and the Netherlands, one more country had unofficially joined the ranks of nations who have seen this all before and know how it ends, when reports emerged that Austria would repatriate 140 tons of gold from the Bank of England (appropriately immortalized in “this is what happens when you hand your gold over to The Bank of England for “safekeeping”.) As of today, it is official.
Phoenix police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation say they are aware of a man’s plans for a Muhammad cartoon drawing contest scheduled for Friday in front of a Phoenix mosque.
If at first you don’t succeed ( at creating a false-flag attack) try, try again!
The White House ramped up its campaign to persuade the Senate to renew National Security Agency surveillance powers before they expire at midnight Sunday, likening a potential lapse to playing “Russian roulette” with national security.
Even though the government now admits such surveillance has not cracked a single case, we we proved that real criminals and terrorists can easily evade the NSA!
What do you reach for when you are in pain? You certainly don’t want to rub toxic chemicals all over yourself or ingest drugs with a long list of nasty side effects. There must be a better solution. How about a natural salve you can make at home that is inexpensive and actually works to relieve your pain?
For more than a decade, troops here have been schooled in counterinsurgency.
“Mission-specific” training, they call it: going house to house, busting down doors, rooting out terror cells, recognizing crude explosives.
Now, after a pair of mission-specific wars, an Army in transition aims to get back to the future.
The training needed to fight full-scale, more conventional battles has suffered, Army leaders contend. So Fort Riley is putting soldiers such as Staff Sgt. Gilbert Monroe back into big tanks and simulating wars on a scale grander than Iraq or Afghanistan.
In spite of AIPAC, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Saudis and some of its GCC allies having done everything they could to kill the pending nuclear deal with Iran, they have failed. The negotiations are on track. Many opinion polls show that a comfortable majority of Americans support President Barack Obama’s diplomacy with Iran.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Wednesday that France would oppose a nuclear deal with Iran if it did not allow inspections of military sites.
An agreement “will not be accepted by France if it is not clear that verifications can be made at all Iranian facilities, including military sites,” Fabius told parliament.

An unknown group has launched a website that profiles people affiliated with pro-Palestinian student groups – publishing their names, photos, occupations and sometimes universities and majors – in an effort to dissuade potential employers from hiring them.
Canary Mission went live in mid-May and includes profiles of 54 people, primarily university students and professors, with photos and links to their social media profiles.
“It is your duty to ensure that today’s radicals are not tomorrow’s employees,” a video explanation of the project warns.
Former British prime minister Tony Blair will step down as representative of the Quartet of Middle East powerbrokers at the end of June, diplomatic sources said on Wednesday.
Blair wrote to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday that he would step down from the role he has held since 2007. “(His) decision …will come into effect at the end of next month,” a source close to the Quartet said.
No comment was immediately available from Blair’s office in London.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Wednesday blamed the rise of ISIS on hawkish members of the GOP who he said were too eager to intervene abroad.
Paul, who is running for president, has worked to push back against the characterization that he is an isolationist and weak on foreign policy. On Wednesday, Paul said that those who said his kind of foreign policy was responsible for the rise of ISIS were wrong.
New exhibition asked cartoonists to mock ISIS; among the works are cartoons criticizing US and Israel’s ‘help’ in ISIS rise to power.
A federal judge has thwarted an attempt to force the release of the Senate report on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) torture program.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s full report on the CIA interrogation program. The executive summary of the report was previously made public, albeit with numerous redactions.
But U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg rejected the ACLU’s request, ruling the report remains a congressional record and thus isn’t subject to the FOIA. When Congress created FOIA in 1966, it made sure to exempt the legislative branch from its provisions.
A quarter of respondents in the survey earning $500,000 or more reported that they signed a confidentiality agreement that prohibits them from reporting illegal activities to the authorities. “The thing that blows my mind is that, as a former DOJ and SEC
It’s been said many times, in many places, even well before the Great Recession: The culture on Wall Street is terrible. It encourages bad behavior. More recently, there are concerns that the Wall Street that caused the financial crisis is back.

A helicopter circled overhead, spraying a fine mist of toxic weed killers. Darryl Ivy took refuge inside his pickup: Windows up, doors shut.
The scene was captured on camera, one of more than 200 videos Ivy recorded on his smartphone.
Attorney Jack Scarola penned a 5-page letter to the US Department of Justice dated 9/11/2014. Scarola wanted DOJ to investigate Sheriff Ric Bradshaw’s deputies and not only their rogue behavior but also what goes on within internal affairs investigations and the command staff;
The FBI took up matter and is investigating. Attorney Stuart Kaplan, former FBI SA, also has many issues with the outright fraud being committed by Ric Bradshaw’s PBSO. Kaplan’s investigation for his client lead him to review traffic camera recordings which completely contradict the sworn testimony of the deputies who shot a handicapped teenage boy 3 times – including in the head.
For years many within the alternative media have written about the danger to freedom posed by implantable RFID chips. From chips implanted into pets to chips used in humans to monitor their health, society has slowly been conditioned to accept implanted microchips as a useful science based tool.
China has issued a stark warning to the United States that World War 3 is “inevitable” if the U.S continues to meddle in the activities of the emerging superpower.
The Daily Express reports that in a new military white paper published today, China has stated its intention to concentrate less on its defensive capabilities and to increase its focus on its offensive capabilities.
Beijing highlighted the reasons for its tactical switch because of a “grave and complex array of security threats.”
Joint and individual military exercise drills have proliferated across the globe over the past couple of months with no sign of these occurrences abating, if anything it appears as full steam ahead.
As these events are at an unprecedented level to-date, they point to potential war preparations, or if not, preparations for an event unbeknown to the general public at this stage.
Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina conducted a media call Monday morning after announcing she is running for president. In response to a question about what she would do on her first day in office if she were elected, Fiorina said that her first phone call would be to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
I know of no comparable global Great Project to equal what is now unfolding, bit-by-bit, as China reveals more about her Silk Road Economic Belt high-speed railway infrastructure network. And it’s now clear that the road will be filled with entire new cities, industrial zones, construction, improving standards of living for hundreds of millions of people previously abandoned. The implications for founding a new global alternative to the bankrupt dollar system are immense.

The U.S.-trained commander of Tajikistan’s elite police force has defected to Islamic State, he said in a YouTube video, and his former unit will issue a statement condemning him, media said on Thursday.
Colonel Gulmurod Khalimov commanded the Central Asian nation’s special-purpose police known as OMON, used against criminals and militants. He disappeared in late April, prompting a search by Tajik police.
He reappeared Wednesday, vowing to bring jihad to Russia and the Unites States as he brandished a cartridge belt and sniper rifle, in a professionally made, 10-minute video clip posted in social networks.
Before Hillary Clinton spoke at the University of California at Los Angeles in March, her representatives had a few specifications to negotiate with school officials. And of course, there was the matter of Clinton’s $300,000 speaking fee. When officials asked for a price reduction on behalf of the public university, Clinton’s representatives didn’t budge, saying $300,000 was already the “special university rate”…
On April 26, 2015, Jeffrey Lieberman, former president of the American Psychiatric Association, stirred up controversy by calling investigative journalist Robert Whitaker a “menace to society” on CBC radio because Whitaker, in his book Anatomy of an Epidemic, had challenged the long-term effectiveness of psychiatric medication.
But is it Whitaker or Lieberman who is a menace to society?
Have I mentioned recently what a colossal dick Rick Santorum is? No matter, you can see for himself because he’s running for president again. In his announcement speech, Rick went full wingnut. He wants to “drive a stake” through Common Core (Hi, “Bobby” Jindal!). He wants to junk the IRS (Hi, Ted Cruz!) and institute a flat tax (Hi, Steve Forbes!). This, of course, means that you and Bill Gates will pay exactly the same percentage of your income in taxes, and Rick is only doing that because he’s “stands for someone — the American worker.”
The deployment of Iskander-M missile complexes in Kaliningrad will “fundamentally change the balance of security in Europe,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said during a speech at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies on Wednesday.
Stoltenberg described Moscow’s actions as “unjustified, destabilizing and dangerous” while adding that the alliance did not wish to deepen its confrontation with Russia.
In Moscow President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov dismissed the NATO chief’s words about Moscow allegedly using military drills as a cover for moving troops to Ukrainian territory as “irrelevant.”
Dare to publish a scientific study against Big Biotech, and Monsanto will defame and discredit you. For the first time, a Monsanto employee admits that there is an entire department within the corporation with the simple task of ‘discrediting’ and ‘debunking’ scientists who speak out against GMOs.
The WHO recently classified glyphosate, a chemical in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, as carcinogenic – news that is really heating things up with biotech. So Monsanto has been demanding that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) retract their statements about the poisons’s toxicity to human health.
America’s rising generation of adults are the least religiously observant of any generation in six decades, determined an expansive study led by Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State.
“You believe that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a woman made from a rib was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
Relying on the provisions of the Constitution as ultimate proof, the petition presents incontrovertible evidence that no contemporary federal court has jurisdiction anywhere within the exterior limits of any of the 50 freely associated compact states of the Union.
This means that federal law is enforceable only in the District of Columbia and the Territories—and every United States District Judge in every United States District Court throughout the Union is usurping exercise of jurisdiction in extra-constitutional geographic area and culpable for treason to the Constitution:
“We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the constitution. . . .” Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. 264, 6 Wheat. 265, 5 L.Ed. 257 (1821).
It is time to cut these losses and bring some heavyweights into this battle against extremism.
Baghdad and Washington are pointing fingers, each accusing the other of being asleep on the job.
An objective look at US interests in the region paint an entirely different picture. The Americans seek to maintain absolute hegemony in the Mideast, even as they exit costly military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Their primary interests are 1) access to low cost oil and gas, 2) propping up Israel, and more recently, 3) undermining Russian (and Chinese) influence in the region.
So the government gets to decide what is “hateful” and “extreme?” I’m sure they will make sure that Zionists in Britain only say nice things about Palestinians!
This bill is aimed at Muslims and those on the dissident right. While some in Britain are extreme in their Islamic views, I see this bill also being used to outlaw discussion of Zionist crimes in Palestine and any open discussion of the Holocaust that doesn’t back the official 6 Million story.
FIFA President Sepp Blatter is trying to broker a deal between the Palestinian and Israel football associations ahead of this week’s FIFA World Congress at which the Palestinians have called for a vote to suspend Israel.
This summer, British scientists are expected to begin field trials of a genetically modified (GMO) potato dubbed by proponents the ‘super spud’, whose developers boast will be free of fungal diseases and other pest problems. GMO maize and rapeseed oil could also be grown in England by the end of this year, as Westminster is pushing for more GMO foods to be introduced into the UK food supply…
IS the world going mad? Military posturing is quietly reaching new extremes in Europe, the Mediterranean and the South China Sea. And the provocative bluster has just reached new heights.
The source was anonymous. But the mouthpiece has a measure of credibility. High profile military analyst and former US Naval War College lecturer John Schindler tweeted last week: “Said a senior NATO (non-US) GOFO to me today: ‘We’ll probably be at war this summer. If we’re lucky it won’t be nuclear.’ Let that sink in.”
The “civilized” West dispenses with massive crocodile tears as Ancient Silk Road pearl of the desert Palmyra falls to ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.
Yet neither US President Barack Obama nor any of the 22 heavily weaponized nations/vassals theoretically part of his coalition of the willing sent at least a single Hellfire missile-equipped drone against the black-clad fake Caliphate goons.
A case can still be made that the “civilized” West would rather deal with a medieval, intolerant Wahhabi-drenched Caliphate than with a secular Arab “dictator that refuses to prostrate himself in the altar of Western neoliberalism.”
As tensions continue to rise in the South China Sea, Australian media outlets are reporting that China has installed weapons on its artificial islands. This despite citing no evidence, and despite the fact that Beijing has consistently stressed that the islands will be used for peaceful purposes.
The Clinton Foundation confirmed Thursday that it received as much as $26.4 million in previously unreported payments from foreign governments and corporations for speeches given by the Clintons.
It’s the latest in a string of admissions from the foundation that it didn’t always abide by a 2008 ethics agreement to disclose its funding sources publicly. That agreement, penned as Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, is certain to continue the headache that the foundation’s work and donors have become for Clinton as she makes another run at the White House.
The following is an announcement of a Jewish Herem (excommunication) signed by Jewish Voice For Peace (JVP) targeting one of America’s leading human rights activists, Alison Weir. The letter was leaked to me by three different JVP Chapter Leaders who, apparently, are experiencing fatigue with JVP’s thought policing.
According to my informers, the letter was written by Rebecca Vilkomerson, JVP’s Executive Director. It was sent to the 40 chapter leaders of JVP. My JVP sources told me that the letter wasn’t intended to be publicized. After all, The Protocols Of The Elders of ‘Anti’ Zion are better communicated in a clandestine manner.
On the latest global criminal scandal, that of “rampant corruption” at FIFA, we – jokingly – said: “And now we just sit back and wait to see how many of the defendants sent “donations” to the Clinton Foundation and how many speeches Hillary and/or Bill gave at the Baur au Lac in the past two decades.”

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Don’t let Bill back in the White House, he abused women and he’ll do it again.’ Paula Jones warns against voting for Hillary – because she also lied about sex case which almost cost him presidency
She was the woman who almost brought down the president, with her allegations of sexual harassment.
But 21 years after Paula Jones accused Bill Clinton of lurid behavior, she is speaking out against Hillary and insisting that his wife is not fit to be President either – because of her husband’s history of bad behavior.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online Jones delivers her own verdict on Hillary’s bid to become president, saying that her husband’s attitude towards women disqualifies Bill from re-entering the White House – while what she calls Hillary’s ‘lies’ disqualify her from the Oval Office.
‘There is no way that she did not know what was going on, that women were being abused and accosted by her husband,’ she says. ‘They have both lied.’
Dozens of faculty at New York University (NYU) have signed a petition calling for the university to divest from multinational companies that profit from Israel’s occupation in Palestine.
The 130 professors are joining NYU students in their growing campaign to demand that tuition dollars not be spent to systematically deny Palestinians their rights.
Israel is hoping to receive $4.2-$4.5 billion a year in military aid from the United States for ten years, to counter the threat from Iran and oil-rich Middle East states that have been re-arming rapidly, a senior Israeli source has told Defense News
Under a 10-year deal signed in 2007, Israel receives just over $3 billion a year in American aid, with stipulations that over 70 percent of that aid has to be spent buying US military hardware. An extension of that agreement, running to 2028, was principally agreed on by Barack Obama during a visit to Israel in 2013, but according to Haaretz, talks on its terms have been “preliminary and unofficial.”

Dr. Duke had a special Memorial Day program where he went into the history of the wars that we are memorializing and showed the critical Jewish roles in getting the U.S. into World War I and World War II, to say nothing of the more recent wars in the Middle East. He and Dr. Slattery also talked about how Jews twist the privilege they have historically benefited from into a narrative of perpetual victimhood.
Memorial Day used to be a somber occasion, dedicated to reflection and remembrance of those killed in America’s wars. Today it is instead a celebration of ongoing wars, a long shopping weekend and the unofficial start of summer. Part of the problem with America’s shifting perception of the price to be paid when one goes to war is that it has been shaped by Hollywood and video games, so much so that it has become divorced from the horrible reality of what happens when countries and peoples do their best to kill each other. Protected by two oceans, the continental United States has been largely immune from being on the receiving end of war, not suffered any form of military attack since Pancho Villa rode against Blackjack Pershing in New Mexico in 1916. And apart from some experiments with weather balloons launched by the Japanese in 1942, the country has never been subjected to aerial bombardment.
Man Calls Suicide Line, Police Kill Him: “Justin Way was in his bed with a knife, threatening suicide. His girlfriend called a non-emergency number to try to get him into a hospital. Minutes later, he was shot and killed in his bedroom by cops with assaul
On May 11, Justin Way was drinking and threatening to kill himself. His father, George Way, said his son was a recovering alcoholic and had been alcohol-free for five weeks.
“He just lost his job, and he had a setback,” he said.
Way’s live-in girlfriend, Kaitlyn Christine Lyons, said she’d caught Justin drinking a bottle of vodka, which she took away from him to pour out. She said he was drunk, lying in their bed with a large knife, saying he would hurt himself with it. She called a non-emergency number in an attempt to get her boyfriend to a local St. Augustine, Florida, hospital for help—and told them she did not feel threatened.
The dispute centers on Google copying names, declarations, and header lines of the Java APIs in Android. Oracle filed suit, and in 2012, a San Francisco federal judge sided with Google. The judge ruled that the code in question could not be copyrighted. Oracle prevailed on appeal, however. A federal appeals court ruled that the “declaring code and the structure, sequence, and organization of the API packages are entitled to copyright protection.”
Google maintained that the code at issue is not entitled to copyright protection because it constitutes a “method of operation” or “system” that allows programs to communicate with one another.
Germany will not prosecute a former Nazi SS soldier who allegedly helped kill more than 300 people in Italy during World War Two because he has dementia and is unfit to stand trial, prosecutors said on Thursday.
Note: Hundreds of Israel defense force will not be charged with the murders of about 20,000 or more Palestinians as it is not politically correct!
A recently discovered bug in Apple’s mobile OS means that anyone can effectively crash another individual’s iPhone, or send it into Safe Mode if jailbroken, by simply sending a SMS or iMessage containing a specific set of non-Latin characters. The bug, as discovered by a number of keen-eyed Reddit users, causes an iOS device to immediately crash and reboot upon receiving of the message, as long as the device isn’t opened in the same conversation thread in which the message was received.
Scott Walker has written up some “Reflections on My Recent Trip to Israel” and seized the opportunity to again bash President Obama over his proposed nuclear deal with Iran.
As if the drought wasn’t enough: A widely viewed YouTube video has predicted a 9.8 magnitude earthquake will strike California today.
But those of you reading this from the Golden State almost certainly need not worry. The source of the prediction seems unreliable at best.
This feels like a pathetic publicity stunt to get people interested in seeing the new movie “San Andreas”, about a monster California quake.
When Jeb Bush announced that, like his dimwitted and bloodthirsty brother, he too would have invaded Iraq had he been president at the time, ire was drawn in virtually all corners of the American populace with the exception, of course, of the typical warmongering Neo-Con segments…
have to say that I was positively thrilled by this article on how you can lose weight by eating chocolate. It encapsulates so many things I try to drill into my students — I’ll probably use it in my genetics class as an example of bad statistics, and my writing class as an example of using science writing skills for evil.
Here’s the deal: chocolate doesn’t help you lose weight. But if you confuse the data with a large number of variables that you ignore, and do a little unscrupulous p-hacking, you can get an effect with statistical significance. So these authors set out to produce a bad study in nutritional science, and see if they can get it to be publicized.
Vladimir Putin weighed into the scandal Thursday, blaming a U.S. conspiracy to impose its dominion on the world and springing to the defense of the embattled FIFA President, Sepp Blatter.
In a statement on the Kremlin web site, Putin compared Blatter to other victims of U.S. “persecution”, the whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, calling the investigation “just one more brazen attempt to spread its jurisdiction to other states.”
The other eight defendants, he argued, “aren’t U.S. citizens, and if anything happened, it didn’t happen on the territory of the U.S..”

A fugitive former Los Angeles police officer charged with killing a man during an off-duty fight was arrested Tuesday in northern Mexico, officials said.
Henry Solis, 27, was captured by Mexican security forces in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, the Chihuahua state attorney general’s office said. The arrest was made thanks to an exchange of information with U.S. authorities and intelligence work, it said.
“Henry Solis will be put at the disposition of Mexico’s migration office so that he can be handed over to the appropriate authorities,” a statement from the office said.
It turns out that the gun that the woman used to perform the murder was registered with the police department, and was actually a service weapon that belonged to an officer.
The woman eventually confessed to investigators that the gun belonged to her son, a police officer, who let her use it and indeed was orchestrating the murder behind the scenes, according to reports.
“The evidence we believe shows he conspired with his mother ahead of time and assisted her in making the crime succeed,” said Charles County State’s Attorney Anthony Covington.
“That’s first-degree murder,” he added.
Hezbollah is doomed to fail in Qalamoun and throughout Syria, the leader of the Nusra Front has said, predicting that the Lebanese group would be defeated after the “approaching” downfall of the Syrian government.
A police lieutenant has been charged with three felonies involving child sexual abuse.
Lt. Stites faces a count of lewd molestation as well multiple charges of sexual abuse.
The victim is said to be under 12 yrs old.
In fact, reports say that Lt. Stites assaulted a 3-yr-old girl multiple times.
During his hearing, Lt. Stites remained silent.
An Advanced Practice Registered nurse performed an examination on the child and determined that there was sufficient physical evidence that a sexual assault occurred, according to reports.
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham says allowing the United Nations to decide the Israeli-Palestinian peace process is a “mistake.”
The South Carolina senator is a Republican foreign policy hawk and critic of President Barack Obama’s handling of the Middle East. He was visiting Israel on Wednesday ahead of an expected announcement on a run for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
More than 100 pages of previously classified Department of Defense and Department of State documents implicate the Obama administration in a cover-up to obscure the role Hillary Clinton and the State Department played in the rise of ISIS.
The documents were obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch.
Two F16 jets were shot down over Yemen this month. When the wreckage was examined, both were found to be of types never supplied to an Arab nation, not Saudi Arabia, nor anyone. The only “buyer” in the region for that type of plane is Israel, an online US military journal claimed in a report Tuesday.
Body cam footage captured the shocking moment two police officers forced pregnant woman to the ground while her hands were behind her back despite the fact that she did not commit a crime.
Although a 75% majority is needed for the Palestinian motion to carry, there has been a growing sense that the mood at FIFA is shifting the Palestinians’ way. Israel and the US are, of course, deeply worried. Such a move would have strong overtones of the sports boycott against South Africa and further reinforce the idea that the description of Israel as an apartheid state holds. It would also disrupt FIFA tournaments Israel is due to host in the coming months, causing great embarrassment to Israel and FIFA’s president, Sepp Blatter.
For many years, Argentina has been under direct attack from the combined forces of global Zionist organizations and lobbies, Israel, the US and the UK, centered on the two deadly terror attacks perpetrated on Argentine soil against the Israeli Embassy and the AMIA/DAIA Jewish Mutual Center buildings located in downtown Buenos Aires.
Global Zionism exerted enormous pressure on successive Argentine governments to ensure the country falsely accuses Iran of masterminding these two attacks using Hezbollah and Hamas as proxies.
The mysterious suicide/assassination of Public Prosecutor Alberto Nisman last January, however, is fast unmasking the Truth: that both attacks were probably Israeli false flag operations.
“The Right to Difference”: Balkanizing France
Just as Jews in the U.S. have a leading role — in Hollywood and pop culture generally — in defining what is “American,” so have French Jews pushed to redefine Frenchness away from an ethnic or even an assimilationist definition, towards a Balkanized France in which Jews may live and operate as a separate group with no unified majority against them.
“It looks very strange, the arrests are carried out on the request of the USA side,” he said. “They are accused of corruption – who is? International officials. I suppose that someone broke some rules, I don’t know. But definitely, it’s got nothing to do with the USA. Those officials are not US citizens. If something happened it was not in the US and it’s nothing to do with them.
This is the top view drawing of the head cross section showing the wound track. This track indicates that the gun was placed into the left side of Foster’s mouth. While not impossible, this position would be somewhat awkward for a right handed shooter.
The allegations are damning, but frankly, they couldn’t have come at a better time for Israel. Until Wednesday, much of the coverage of the FIFA Congress surrounded whether delegates would vote to suspend Israel from world soccer. The Palestinian Football Association is introducing the motion to suspend Israel, accusing it of unjustly restricting Palestinian soccer players’ freedom of movement and claiming that Israel’s West Bank settlement teams violate FIFA rules. Israeli officials have called the effort blatantly political and said that the Palestinians’ complaints all concern Israel’s security forces — not Israel’s soccer teams.
For Israel to be suspended, three quarters of delegates would need to approve the motion. If that were a long shot before, it’s even more unlikely now.
David Cameron supports calls for Sepp Blatter to quit as Fifa president, Downing Street has said.
The PM wants reform of world football’s governing body, and supports calls for sponsors to reconsider their links with Fifa if Mr Blatter does not stand down.
With FIFA refusing to deny Russia hosting 2018 Worl Cup, and the daring of it’s administrative members to suspend Israel in a vote..the axe is falling now on everyboy’s neck running FIFA from top to bottom.
Than on Wednesday Israeli aircraft struck a number of sites in the Gaza Strip from the air early. Gaza residents said missiles struck several locations throughout the Gaza Strip, including places used as training camps by Islamic Jihad militants on sites that had been Israeli colonies before Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005. Earlier, unknown Palestinian militants fired a rocket late Tuesday from the enclave which landed near the Israeli port city of Ashdod. It was the longest-range militant rocket strike since a ceasefire which ended last summer’s Israeli assault on Gaza. There was no immediate claim of responsibility in Gaza for the rocket launching. However, Israeli media speculated that infighting among Islamic Jihad militants in Gaza Strip may have precipitated the rocket firing without the permission of Gaza’s Islamist Hamas rulers.

JPMorgan Chase & Co has launched the JPMorgan Chase Institute, a think tank.
A High Court judge has declared that ANZ breached the Fair Trading Act for misleadingly representing interest rate swaps to some customers.
Specifically, the bank understated some of the risks and overstated some of the benefits of the swaps arrangements, incoming Chief High Court Judge Geoffrey Venning said this morning.
The declaration follows a negotiated settlement between the Commerce Commission and ANZ, after which the bank paid $18.5 million. These funds will be distributed to affected customers who complained to the regulator.
Between 2005 and 2009, a number of New Zealand banks marketed and negotiated interest rate swaps, which are a financial derivative product that allows borrowers to manage the interest rate exposure on their borrowing.
The Commission in 2012 began probing whether these swaps were being misleadingly marketed and last year reached settlements with ANZ, ASB and Westpac over their behaviour.

“History,” it has been written, “does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” Today it’s rhyming with Gen. Billy Mitchell. In the 1920s, Mitchell challenged conventional thinking by advocating air power at sea in the face of a naval establishment dominated by battleship proponents.
The hubris of the “battleship Navy” was such that just nine days before Pearl Harbor, the official program for the 1941 Army-Navy game displayed a full page photograph of the battleship USS Arizona with language virtually extolling its invincibility.
Of course, the reason that no one had yet sunk a battleship from the air?—?in combat?—?was that no one had yet tried.
Two watchdog groups on Wednesday asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Jeb Bush and his Super PAC are “engaged in knowing and willful violations of the campaign finance laws,” the latest in a string of complaints against the Florida Republican.

It’s not like we don’t have half a clue who actually “owns” the Federal Reserve, but we just wanted to know, superficially, who the Fed itself claims it is owned by (and, additionally, how the agency justifies its unchecked power).
Apparently the agency never officially answers that question. See for yourself.

“You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence.” — Attributed to Charles Austin Beard (1874-1948)
John F. Nash Jr., a mathematician who shared a Nobel Prize in 1994 for work that greatly extended the reach and power of modern economic theory and whose decades-long descent into severe mental illness and eventual recovery were the subject of a book and a 2001 film, both titled “A Beautiful Mind,” was killed, along with his wife, in a car crash on Saturday in New Jersey. He was 86.
Dr. Nash, and his wife, Alicia, 82, were in a taxi on the New Jersey Turnpike in Monroe Township around 4:30 p.m. when the driver lost control while trying to pass another car and hit a guard rail and another vehicle, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police.
Occasionally people inquire as to the different treatment of different kinds of persons in our legal system. As the U.S. Supreme Court has explained, corporations are persons just like my readers. The only difference between a corporate person and a human person is that when a human person breaks the law, the human person depending on the offense, may go to jail. When a corporate person breaks the law, the corporate person may be punished, but is never sent to jail.
Proving once again that “scientists” can make up any loony, whacko conclusion they want and get it published in a prestigious science journal, a celebrated study on gay marriage views that was published in Science has now been exposed as a complete fabrication.
One of the study’s authors, it turns out, just made the whole thing up.
Only hard-core Democrats and enamored followers of The Daily Show think the national press is reporting the truth to the American people. For the rest of us, we have been slowly and consistently turning off the nightly news for decades.
The last open armed conflict in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia – FYROM (former Socialist Republic of Macedonia as one of six federal republics of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) is just an expected continuation of constant tensions between the ethnic Albanians and the Macedonian Slavs during the last quarter of century.[i] However, these tensions are time to time transformed into the open armed conflicts of the Albanian extremists, usually coming from Kosovo, with the Macedonian security forces.
In a recent speech before the world’s largest biotechnology meeting in San Diego, Clinton — who commands speaking fees of about $225,000 per speech — was enthusiastic in her support for the use of GMOs in farming and agriculture in general. She also spoke positively of using taxpayer-funded federal financial subsidies as payoffs to American companies, to keep them from relocating outside the United States.

Rasmussen Reports released the results of a national survey on Thursday that revealed 61 percent of likely voters have no trust in the political news they are getting. That’s a 16-point increase from the 45 percent who said they did not trust the political news in a poll conducted in October 2014. Only 21 percent of the respondents said they still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that’s a 12-point decrease from the 33 percent in the October 2014 survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
While it’s hard to comprehend, some health recommendations are completely fabricated and are not based in any science. Dr. Kendrick wrote about this in a recent article for The Independent:1
“If you are a man, it has virtually become gospel that drinking more than 21 units of alcohol a week is damaging to your health. But where did the evidence to support this well-known ‘fact’ come from?
The answer may surprise you. According to Richard Smith, a former editor of the British Medical Journal, the level for safe drinking was ‘plucked out of the air.’
He was on a Royal College of Physicians team that helped produce the guidelines in 1987. He told The Times newspaper that the committee’s epidemiologist had conceded that there was no data about safe limits available and that ‘it’s impossible to say what’s safe and what isn’t.’
It’s made up (like human-caused global warming) to sell you products!
Even nominally friendly sites like NSNBC are misreporting events in this historically important town in the far east of Homs Governorate. Many sites are simply making the fatuous statement that the entire city of Palmyra has been overrun by ISIS fanatics and that includes Alalam and Al-Mayaadeen. Interesting to note that neither news source has anyone on the ground there to report directly.
Thanks to Brad Hoff for pointing in the comments here to the Defense Intelligence Agency reports from August and October 2012 about the war on Syria. The DIA was the one U.S. intelligence agency that got the Iraq WMD case right but its appraisals, for example that the famous “aluminum tubes” were ordered by Iraq to build mortar tubes, were suppressed by the Bush administration. The now published heavily redacted DIA reports were released after Freedom Of Information Act litigation by the conservative Judicial Watch.
Check out this textbook written in 1970 by Paul and Anne Ehrlich, the precursor to the textbook Ecoscience they wrote with Obama Science Czar John P. Holdren seven years later. The book advocates all manner of horrors to depopulate what they consider an overpopulated world, including everything from adding sterilants to the water and food to producing a sterilizing virus that requires a vaccine antidote one could apply for… it’s a nightmare.
As such, it was pretty shocking to find a passage where the authors excitedly discuss using stevia rebaudiana — the same sweet leaf hailed everywhere today as a wonderful, healthy sugar alternative — as an anti-fertility agent
Note that part about infecting the world with a virus that prevents pregnancy, then selling the antidote!
he US Department of Defense says Alaska is its preferred location to deploy a new long-range “must-have” radar to enable missile defense systems to better intercept potential enemy threats, such as from Iran or North Korea.
The Pentagon says that the new Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) will begin defensive operations in 2020 and will boost the capacity of ground-based interceptors in Alaska and California. The Clear Air Force Station, an Air Force Space Command radar station in central Alaska, has been chosen as the preferred location for the radar.

Putin stated that the terror in Chechnya and in the Russian Caucasus in the early 1990’s was actively backed by the CIA and western Intelligence services to deliberately weaken Russia. He noted that the Russian FSB foreign intelligence had documentation of the US covert role without giving details.
From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world’s stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world’s terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the “straight to beheading YouTube clip” purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria’s president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe’s dominant – and belligerent – source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.
And having created this new Emmanuel Goldstein, the US now paints all the people of nations trying to throw off US puppet rule as ‘ISIS’ so Americans don’t realize the truth behind these imperial conquests and re-conquests and re-re-conquests!
As the sun set on Thursday, activists and Internet users of varying political stripes gathered outside Senate offices across the country and in Washington, D.C., to urge Congress to oppose any reauthorization of the Patriot Act and instead let key provisions that enable NSA spying to sunset on June 1st.

Some 71 people were arrested in Cleveland overnight during protests that flared after a police officer was found not guilty in the shooting deaths of an unarmed black man and a woman following a high-speed car chase in 2012, police said on Sunday.
The law allows authorities to bar foreign civil society groups seen as threatening Russia’s “defence capabilities” or “constitutional foundations” and go after local activists working with them, the Kremlin statement said.
“It is the MISSION of the police that is lethal, racist, oppressive and unacceptable to Black America; the equipment and clothing is incidental.”
President Obama took his police “reform” shell game to Camden, New Jersey, this week, announcing a ban on the sale of some types of military equipment to local police departments, and restrictions on other weapons, gear and equipment. As with all of the administration’s responses to the nine-month-old Black Lives Matter movement, it was an exercise in public relations and calculated diversion, crafted to camouflage the essential nature of the Mass Black Incarceration State – what Michelle Alexander calls the New Jim Crow.
Americans owe $1.3 trillion in student loans, with $43 million people, young, old, and everyone in between burdened with student debt. This debt has shaken the fundamental values of the nation’s higher education system. Now the Republicans are proposing to cut $150 billion from student aid in the recently passed budget bill, including freezing the Pell program that helps needy students acquire higher education.
The Dr. Zbig “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski-style strategy has always been to lure Russia into another Afghanistan in Ukraine, leading to a collapse of the Russian economy with the Big Prize being a Western takeover of Russia’s oil and natural gas wealth, and by extension Central Asia’s. Ukrainians would be used as cannon fodder, as were Afghans since the 1980s Arab-Afghan jihad.
Yet the Obama administration overplayed its hand, and realpolitik now spells out the deepening of the Russia-China strategic partnership across the entire Eurasian land mass; Eurasia as a prospective, massive commercial emporium stretching from Beijing to Berlin, or from Shanghai to St. Petersburg and beyond towards Rotterdam and Duisburg.
Without the exceptionalist obsession of some key Beltway factions, none of the elements of Cold War 2.0 would be in play, as Russia is a natural ally of the US in many fronts. That in itself reveals the state of “strategic thinking” by the current US administration.
If someone had the impression that the visit of Secretary of State John Kerry to the town of Sochi, followed by negotiations with Victoria Nuland, his deputy in Moscow, could be regarded as first steps in the direction of normalization of US-Russian relations, they would be deeply mistaken. In short, Washington, particularly the Obama administration, is trying to solve its problems at the expense or rather with the help of Russia, to ensure the victory of Hillary Clinton in the upcoming elections. However, the United States continues to apply pressure on Russia, using a variety of different strategies.
The world faces the largest financial crash ever. As it turned out every man on our planet has a debt surpassing $28,000.
According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, the total amount of debt on our planet has grown from $142 trillion at the end of 2007 to $199 trillion today.
All major economies today have higher levels of borrowing relative to GDP than they did in 2007. Global debt these years has grown by $57 trillion, raising the ratio of debt to GDP by 17 percentage point.
While Palmyra has absolutely no value whatsoever to Islam, Christianity or even to ISIS as an ‘Islamic group’, it holds a TREMENDOUS significance for the Jews and Judaism.
The Ukrainian Rada adopted new legislation, according to which, a number of agreements with Russia in military sphere will be abolished. It also comprises an agreement on the transit of Russian military men, that are temporarily deployed in Moldova, through the Ukrainian territory, as well as supply support for the peacekeepers in Transnistria.
Grigory Marakutsa, General Secretary of the Interparliamentary Assembly “Community for democracy and peoples’ rights” commented on the joint mission of Russians and Ukrainians carried out under the UN mandate. Marakutsa stressed that one party, i.e. Ukraine can not violate the agreement on a unilateral basis. But Ukraine seems to no longer follow international rules.
American politicians in particular and European politicians in general are some of the most ignorant fools when the issue comes to anything outside their own borders. When it comes to Russia, it is an engima wrapped in a mystery…but only because, dear readers, no one has every bothered to try to understand Russians and the Russian world view.
About thirty demonstrators held a rally in Zurich, one of the biggest Swiss cities, on Saturday to protest against the Kiev-led security operation in eastern Ukraine. They included pacifists from Zurich, Luzern and other Swiss cities as well as German anti-fascists.
“Though the truce in Ukraine continues, peace has not come and regrettably is nowhere in sight. The Ukrainian side continues shelling the populated localities in Donbas; Western countries continue supporting the incumbent Ukrainian government with weapons and credits and are sending military instructors to Ukraine. The aim of this manifestation is to tell the truth about the real situation in Ukraine and give a rebuff to a barrage of misinformation spread by the local media,” Maxim, one of the rally’s organizers, told TASS.
Protest actions against the Kiev authorities policy in Donbas have become regular in Switzerland.
The Defence Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) registered 36 violations by Kiev’s military of the ceasefire during past 24 hours, the authority said on Sunday.
“They shelled 36 times the territory of the Donetsk Republic,” the Donetsk news agency quoted the ministry. “Information about casualties is being checked now.”
The territory of the republic was shelled 17 times from mortars and two from MICV. The militia fixed one firing from a tank and four from anti-aircraft units and 12 shootings from grenade launchers and small arms.
Commander of the 4th police battalion of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) Alexei Mozgovoi was killed in a special mission of Ukraine’s Teni (Shadows) commandos, the detachment’s head Alexander Gladky said on Sunday.
Earlier, Mozgovoi had survived several attempts on his life. After the last attempt in late March, he said that it was a provocation aimed to destabilise the situation in the self-proclaimed republic.
In early April, the 4th battalion of territorial self-defence was set up on the basis of the Prizrak (Ghost) brigade, following a resolution on the LPR territorial defence signed by the republic’s leader Igor Plotnitsky on March 7, 2015.
Head of LPR Igor Plotnitsky said the murder was in the interests of Kiev, which, he said, instead of moving towards peace under the Minsk agreements, is trying to fail the political stability around the republics in Donbass.
Enormous strides have been made in recent years in unraveling the evolutionary basis of human nature. Among other thing, this work totally undermines the Behaviorist view that everything human is environmentally determined. Behaviorism, for decades, hindered serious progress in the social sciences; it is well that it be put to rest.

Ole has spent at least 25 years investigating a multitude of conspiracies, and this area of history involves such an incredibly sinister agenda that it is now illegal in some European countries to question the official story or even attempt to investigate the facts.

In a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, dated September 23, 1800, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” By any definition that Jefferson could have envisioned, today’s political correctness can only be regarded as “tyranny over the mind of man.” Forget freedom of association, freedom of expression, freedom of speech, or freedom of privacy, political correctness demands that we don’t even have freedom of thought or opinion.
If one does not have the freedom to live in good conscience with his own sense of morality, he or she is indeed the most enslaved of creatures. Listen to Jefferson again, “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

PENTAGON SHAM: DEFENSE DEPT ALTERED BOOKS IN LONG-AWAITED AUDIT, REPORTS CLAIM
The US Defense Department’s watchdog knowingly turned a blind eye to financial irregularities, leading to the Pentagon signing off on an audit. This has led to questions regarding just how transparent the government auditing process actually is. A special investigation by Reuters revealed that a senior member of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Inspector General team had colluded with an independent auditing company, Grant Thornton LLP, to falsely keep the US Marine Corps books clean. The DoD remained the only federal organization that had not abided with a 1992 law passed by Congress to undergo an audit. This was despite the DoD receiving in excess of $500 billion a year, which is by far the largest appropriation of any department.

The U.S. government is becoming less transparent than it has been at any time in our history, as evidenced by pending water legislation in the nation’s capital that voters, via their elected representatives, are not permitted to see.
As reported by McClatchy Papers, five months into a new Congress and years into a punishing drought that still continues to ravage most of California, legislation dealing with dwindling supplies of water confounds and splits the state’s lawmakers.
Moreover, draft copies of bills are kept so close to the vest that they appear to be a top secret. The myriad details surrounding each draft are constantly changing. Timing to introduce the legislation is not yet settled, although a June 2 Senate hearing might go off as planned. Democrats are divided, and some are just angry.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has put a pricetag on how much it will cost to join his inner circle, where you can meet with the 2016 GOP presidential candidate and have “dedicated staff contact” to ensure that your agenda will heard and noted.

The recordings posted to the site don’t name any of the eavesdropped speakers. But they do include the locations where the recordings were made, which could provide just enough information to identify some of those speakers. And regardless of anonymity, the prank is likely illegal: Secretly recording a conversation in New York requires the consent of at least one of the people recorded—a tape recorder planted under a table and retrieved later certainly doesn’t qualify.
Of the five recordings published on the project’s website so far, three of the recorders used to get them remain in place, and an untold number of others could still be planted around the city. So, careful what you say in public, New Yorkers—unless, of course, you have nothing to hide.
Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov stated on the website of his ministry that there was talk of dividing up Macedonia and giving parts to Bulgaria and Albania.
The Russian minister went on suggesting that Macedonian prime minister Nikola Gruevski was was under pressure to refuse to join sanctions against Russia and the South Stream pipeline and was cajoled into supporting the Turkish Stream project instead.
According to Lavrov, the idea is to divide Macedonia, seen as an artificially established state, among Bulgaria and Albania.

“The announcement of the upcoming default shows a level of responsibility and professionalism which is apparently not high,” Putin said at a meeting with members of the government.
“As far as I understand, the IMF [International Monetary Fund] doesn’t provide any loans to countries that are in a situation of default or bankruptcy,” he added addressing Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, requesting that he hold consultations on Ukraine’s debt to the Russian Federation.
Hillary Clinton was personally emailed by Sidney Blumenthal two days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya with specific information tying the terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia to the consulate attack. Ms. Clinton read and responded to the email. The next day Secretary Clinton spoke at Andrews Air Force Base and claimed specifically that the attack was because of “an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.” We now know that Ms. Clinton knowingly lied thanks to secret emails that were released today.
Big shock, right?
The council is a religious organization, primarily concerned with certifying whether products are kosher and on Thursday’s evening it will give the prime minister its King David Award.
“The King David Award is presented to an individual who is a light unto the world,” reads a description of the honour on the event’s Facebook page. “One whose courage, strength, intelligence and faithfulness are examples and inspirations for us all.
Should have read blight. A blight unto the world
“This year’s honouree has gone over and above the call of duty in every one of those attributes.”
Suuure. If we’re talkin’ blight then yes Stephen Harper has gone over and above the call of duty
Harper’s vocal support for Israel has drawn consistent praise from many segments of the Jewish community, who traditionally voted for the Liberals.
Identity politics in action- Too bad for ordinary run of the mill Canadians.
The Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church in Louisville, KY held a special Sunday service collection to benefit the US Peace Memorial Foundation. This is a first for us, and a sign that our efforts to honor Americans who stand for peace is gaining traction.
We are honored by their generous donation of $920. Thanks to the congregation, Rev. Elwood R. Sturtevant, Lesley Henney, Chairperson and the Social Justice Committee, and Dr. Dennis Neyman, our Kentucky State Coordinator.
Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church joined us in 2007 and has donated over $1000 to date. It is one of five churches to become a Founding Member. We hope that other churches will consider making a similar financial commitment to the work of the US Peace Memorial Foundation. If you are a member of a church that professes a belief in peace, please suggest this.
I was thinking how humanity could descend to such barbarity around the world. How could African migrants risk their lives to leave countries wrecked psychologically and economically by colonial Europeans to seek to arrive in the same continent that subjugated them? How could Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims be slaughtered in the thousands by the majority Buddhists and surviving people end up in boats and sent back to starve and die at sea rejected by nearby countries including countries like Indonesia with Muslim majorities? How could relatives of Jewish holocaust survivors engage in racism and ethnic cleansing for native Palestinians while relatives of Armenian holocaust survivors lead amazingly rich productive caring lives? How could a very wealthy country like “Saudi Arabia” (the quotes are needed because it is an imposed name for a country stolen by the Saud Family) spend billions to support the US/Israeli agenda of destruction and mayhem in countries like Yemen and Syria?
The Chinese navy yesterday issued eight warnings to a U.S. surveillance plane that was flying over artificial islands Beijing is building in the South China Sea.
Two Manhattan DEA employees secretly owned a low-rent strip club in South Hackensack, NJ, that employed illegal immigrants from Brazil and Russia as dancers, the feds say in a new criminal complaint. The dive, called the Twins Plus Go-Go Lounge, has repeatedly been cited by state regulators for lewdness because the dancers over-exposed themselves — and also took money for sex in the private lap dance rooms, the complaint says.
Nearly a year has passed since a Habersham County SWAT team stormed into the Phonesavanh residence, and very nearly killed their 19 month old child. The no-knock raid was prompted by an anonymous tip which suggested there were drugs in the house. As the officers forced their way into the home, they lobbed a flash grenade which wound up landing in the crib where baby “bou-bou” was sleeping. As it erupted, the infant suffered severe burns and had to be taken to the hospital, and placed in a medically induced coma.
Evany José Metzker’s body was found outside the town of Padre Paraíso, in the northeast of Brazil’s southeastern Minas Gerais state.
According to local media reports he had been stripped half-naked and his hands tied behind his back. His head was found 100 metres from his body.
The US military has carried out its threat to fly over disputed islands in the South China Sea, defying multiple warnings by China’s navy for the surveillance aircraft to leave the area.
Last week was annual “Police Week” in Washington, D.C. Officers and representatives from all over the country were in attendence to show their support of police who are killed on the job. 2014 saw 127 officers killed, one of the safest years on record to be a police officer, while an unprecedented 1000+ citizens were killed by police in the same year.
The U.S. and Israel have the worst inequality in the developed world, according to a report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
The OECD found that the gap between rich and poor is at record levels in most of its 34 member countries. But the U.S. and Israel stood out from the pack.
This nation is the United States of America. I would prefer it remain the United States of America and not be transformed into Eastisrael!
Is Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper inching towards criminalising criticism of Israel?
Since first elected in 2006, his Conservative government has been pointing in that direction. Tiny gestures to be sure. But, taken together, they trouble many Canadians.
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” — Voltaire
“The fastest way to bring down a dictatorship is to force it to act like one where everyone can see it!” — Michael Rivero
Against this backdrop of a serial crime spree on the part of employees on multiple continents and coast to coast in the United States, JPMorgan released a statement yesterday regarding the bank pleading guilty to a felony charge for engaging in the rigging of foreign currency trading, calling it “principally attributable to a single trader.” In the statement, Dimon says the bank has a “historically strong culture.”
Dimon is, if nothing else, a master of the grand illusion.
No, he is not a master, because we all see that it is an illusion!
Hopefully, Oculus VR, like Google Glass before it, will be a spectacular failure that people reject. Pray that it is. FACEBOOK-OWNED OCULUS VR HAS NO PLANS TO PREVENT THE ADULT ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY FROM USING ITS RIFT VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET, WHICH IS SCHEDULED TO LAUNCH AS A CONSUMER PRODUCT WITHIN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2016, ACCORDING TO OCULUS FOUNDER PALMER LUCKEY.
GM has joined with John Deere in asking the government to confirm that you literally cannot own your car because of the software in its engine. Like Deere, GM wants to stop the Copyright Office from granting an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that would allow you to jailbreak the code in your car’s engine so that you can take it to a non-GM mechanic for service, or fix it yourself. By controlling who can service your car, GM can force you to buy only official, expensive parts, protecting its bottom line.
From Breaking the Silence’s research, I know that an Israeli commander ordered his troops to blanket-bomb the area. When asked what the troops should target, he told them to pick whatever they wished. “Good morning al-Bureij,” he said to a two-way radio.
That “greeting” amounted to a green light for indiscriminate destruction.
The government of French President François Hollande is renewing its efforts to fatally undermine fundamental Palestinian rights, particularly those of refugees.
France’s Le Figaro has obtained the text of a draft UN Security Council resolution that the Hollande administration plans to introduce sometime before September.
The resolution should be seen as the international counterpart to France’s increasingly fierce crackdown on Palestine solidarity at home under the guise of fighting anti-Semitism.
International pressure on Israel over the Palestinian issue will resume once Iran and the six powers sign their expected nuclear deal at the end of June, Norwegian Foreign Minister Boerge Brende warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday.
The intelligence alliance known as Five Eyes—comprising the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Australia—exploited security weaknesses in one of the world’s most popular browsers to obtain data about users and planned to use links to Google and Samsung app stores to infect smartphones with spyware, a top secret National Security Agency (NSA) document published Wednesday has revealed.
He’s the most respected journalist in U.S. history, and for decades Seymour Hersh has consistently broken major international stories, winning him the Pulitzer Prize among other prestigious awards of journalism.
“We don’t think the Ukrainian conflict is a nuclear crisis.”
That comment is a recent example of a US State Department diplomat deploying standard diplo-speak in order to engage in nuclear saber rattling by denying there’s any need to rattle any of the roughly 10,000 nuclear sabers that already worry the entire sentient world.
With the rise of the Global South and BRICS countries, it seems the United States sees war as the only option in order to keep its global domination, an American journalist and political commentator says.
In the wake of Wednesday’s announcement that five global financial institutions have agreed to plead guilty to multiple crimes and pay about $5.6 billion in penalties for manipulating foreign currencies and interest rates, corporate watchdogs are reiterating the call to ‘break up the banks’ in light of their ongoing malfeasance.
Marching behind a giant banner that read, “McDonald’s: $15 and Union Rights, Not Food Stamps,” 5,000 cooks and cashiers massed at the company’s corporate headquarters Wednesday to kick off the largest-ever protest to hit the burger giant’s annual shareholder meeting.
Washington has threatened not to sign a final nuclear agreement with Tehran unless the Iranian government gives full access to its military sites and nuclear scientists.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!
The Citizens United decision granted corporations legal personhood in regard to the right of Free Speech under the First Amendment. The application of financial pressure by the pensions abridges that right. Hence the Illinois Bill is unconstitutional and under the Supreme Court Ruling Marbury vs Madison, automatically null and void.
The use of any coercive tactic to alter the political views of another party is defined as an act of terror under the USA PATRIOT act.
So, the legislature, along with demonstrating that they actually serve a foreign government ahead of the people of Illinois, are not only unconstitutional, but terrorists!
Europe will lead the world into Economic Totalitarianism because government is now desperate to retain the euro. If the euro collapses, so will Brussels. The government exists solely because of the euro.
In recent days, there’s been quite a bit of discussion about the 2011 raid in Abottabad, Pakistan, that killed Osama bin laden, based upon reporting by Seymour Hersh in the London Review of Books. His story has been greeted with tremendous skepticism by the political establishment and the mainstream press, as were all of his stories going back the My Lai massacre and his early exposés of the CIA’s spying for years on American citizens back in the 1970s.
Five US public sector pension funds are to divest from companies that boycott investment in Israel after a state government passed new legislation forcing the move.
The US state of Illinois saw its House of Representatives and Senate both unanimously pass legislation requiring five state-funded pension schemes to identify all companies that boycott Israel and divest their direct and indirect holdings.
You all tell me when you are finally fed up with your government putting the interests of a foreign power as their top priority.
The extraordinary February 15, 2003 march against the U.S. invasion of Iraq, which brought an estimated 30 million people to the streets in 800 cities on every continent, is immortalized on screen in Amir Amirani’s acclaimed documentary, We Are Many, premiering in the UK this week.
Presumed US Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, brother of former US President George W. Bush, has criticized President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal yesterday announced he is praying over his decision whether to run for president. Yesterday he also issued an executive order yesterday supporting discrimination against marriages by Louisiana gay and lesbian citizens, minutes after a similar bill was overwhelmingly rejected by the Louisiana legislature.
Labour Party leader Ed Miliband resigned last week following the party’s rout in the May 7 general election, but a crisis is already enveloping the contest to find his replacement.
It is well known in the Arab community in Israel that “Flying While Muslim” will earn you extra security checks and delayed travel. Palestinian-American journalist Noor Wazwaz shared her experience of flying into Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion International Airport across her social media channels, where she has more than 28,000 followers.
Wazwaz, who says her goal is become “the first Muslim hijab [head scarf]-wearing news anchor on American television,” decided to become a journalist to better represent “[the] Arab and Muslim voice in Western media.”
The remarks by the Iranian Supreme Leader’s representative at the IRGC Quds Force, Ali Shirazi, came after Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon threatened to nuke Iran.
“In case of the smallest wrong action by the US and the Zionists against Iran, we will raze Israel to the ground easily,” Shirazi warned, addressing a ceremony in the Southeastern city of Kerman on Wednesday evening.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, on May 12th, responding to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s assertions that Ukraine will retake Crimea and will conquer Donbass:
“I have not had a chance – I have not read the speech. I haven’t seen any context. I have simply heard about it in the course of today. But if indeed President Poroshenko is advocating an engagement in a forceful effort at this time, we would strongly urge him to think twice not to engage in that kind of activity, that that would put Minsk in serious jeopardy. And we would be very, very concerned about what the consequences of that kind of action at this time may be.”
The boats, seized from Chinese, Malaysian, Philippine, Thai and Vietnamese fishermen, were blown up on National Awakening Day, which commemorates the first political movement toward Indonesia’s independence.
This is a clarification of the story. The boats were already in the possession of Indonesia, having been confiscated for sighing in Indonesian waters over the last few months, and were blown up as a public display.
In yet another display of the total Jewish domination of American politics, particularly at the highest levels, the Jewish billionaire and media mogul Haim Saban openly stated in an interview with The Jerusalem Post that Hillary Clinton would be an ideal president for Israel.
So let Hillary move to Israel and be their President!
The Israeli government is worried the Obama administration will allow a U.N. conference this week to adopt a resolution that could compel Israel to acknowledge its nuclear arsenal.
At issue is a proposal at the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference that would empower the U.N. secretary general to organize a conference to pursue a Middle East free of nukes and other weapons of mass destruction.
The longer the US government goes on pretending that they do not know Israel has nuclear weapons, the more the American people understand that the US Government is a puppet regime serving Tel Aviv.
The National Security Agency and its closest allies planned to hijack data links to Google and Samsung app stores to infect smartphones with spyware, a top-secret document reveals.
The surveillance project was launched by a joint electronic eavesdropping unit called the Network Tradecraft Advancement Team, which includes spies from each of the countries in the “Five Eyes” alliance — the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia.
The top-secret document, obtained from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, was published Wednesday by CBC News in collaboration with The Intercept. The document outlines a series of tactics that the NSA and its counterparts in the Five Eyes were working on during workshops held in Australia and Canada between November 2011 and February 2012.
“We expect to accomplish by education what dictators in Europe are seeking to do by compulsion and force.” — Louis Alber, chief of the National Recovery Administration, 1933
Rogue cops should not be recycled from one police department to the next. State police licenses can play an important role in protecting the public from dangerous officers, especially if they can be revoked
Not so long ago, federal prosecutors were simply terrified by the idea of what might happen if they ever brought criminal charges against a major bank. They worried that the consequences of a felony conviction might cause a large financial institution to collapse and wreak havoc on Wall Street, much as the accounting firm Arthur Andersen went bust after it was convicted for its role in the Enron scandal.
More than 250 tech companies have signed a letter demanding greater transparency from Congress and decrying the broad regulatory language in leaked parts of the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade bill.
FAO Schwarz (a Toys’R’Us owned store) is set to close it’s doors in NYC on July 15 due to rising rental costs for the store front.
San Bernardino’s council approved a bankruptcy exit plan on Monday night that seeks to virtually eliminate the southern California city’s pension bond debt while paying Calpers, the state pension system, in full.
Speaking at a press conference marking the diplomat’s first official visit to the country on Tuesday morning, al-Maliki noted that Venezuela “is Palestine’s most important ally”.
So a woman walks into a room… That’s how quite a few jokes usually start. In our case, self-appointed Queen of Nulandistan Victoria “F**k the EU” walks into a room in Moscow to talk to Russian deputy foreign ministers Sergei Ryabkov and Grigory Karasin.
A late report from Washington has it that U.S. President Barack Obama is considering an NSA recommendation that Special Forces “boots on the ground” at least be discussed and that the US may direct its war against ISIS to save Palmyra.
With tensions heating up between the United States and Russia over a number of issues – Ukraine, BRICS, sanctions, and NATO encirclement to name a few – the West continues its move in toward Russia’s borders. The latest target in the Anglo-American destabilization campaign has now come forward – Macedonia.
In the attempt to destroy the elected government of Macedonia, George Soros, NATO, and the Western Color Revolution apparatus have all come together to ensure that the will of the Macedonian people is denied as is the will of populations in all Western-style democracies.
As informed observers might well suspect, any color revolution taking place in Eastern Europe will involve the heavy hand of George Soros…
The Ukrainian government is on the brink of declaring default. It has proposed a bill allowing the government to impose a “moratorium” on payment of the country’s external debts.
While shocking to have these types of memos out in the open, it also should come as no surprise to anyone to see George Soros NGOs up to no good, and doing the bidding of their CIA backers.
Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan is the commander of ground forces in the Iranian army. In a television interview on Iran’s Arabic-language news network, Al-Alam, on April 19, 2015, the military leader asserted that the United States government was behind the terror attacks against American targets on September 11, 2001. The Persian general’s view is that the U.S. leaders attacked their own people as a means to begin a war of conquest in Western Asia, in order to divide Islam and control the region’s rich natural resources.
The Pentagon is sending 1,000 ant-tank missiles to Iraq to strengthen its forces against terrorist attacks, a top US official says.
