THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
“In our country the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Retired Southern Californian couple, Ron and Sarah Hall, found out the hard way that the state frowns upon homeowners installing powerful solar panels. SoCal Edison did not allow the Halls to activate their solar system because “it exceeded state standards for energy production,” according to an NBC Los Angeles report.
In 2014, an Instagram post of David D. Ovadia, an Israel Defence Forces (IDF) combat soldier bragged about killing 13 Palestinian children in one day, sparking outrage on social media. Posing with a Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifle, Ovadia tagged a Palestinian woman Sherrii ElKaderi, and wrote: “I killed 13 childrens today and ur next f***ing muslims go to hell bitches.”
Member nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have started a new phase of their International military drills in the Baltic states amid persisting tensions with Moscow.
The US military has acknowledged bombing a Syrian militant unit it had trained and armed purportedly to fight Daesh terrorists in the country, a report says.
The incident was the most serious setback for a controversial Pentagon program that is angling to find new recruits for training after last efforts ended in disaster, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
Well that sort of thing happens when the government lies about who is a friend and who is an enemy.
Police officers go deep undercover to a) infiltrate a drug cartel b) uncover terrorist operations c) pose as panhandlers by the side of the road, writing tickets to drivers who take off their seatbelts to get at their wallets to give them money
A man who received a $175 traffic ticket for unbuckling his seatbelt to give change to what turned out to be a police officer posing as a panhandler is likely to think twice before giving to the less fortunate again.
CIA chief John Brennan said he expects 28 classified pages of a U.S. congressional report into the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States to be published, absolving Saudi Arabia of any responsibility.
‘I think the 28 pages will be published and I support their publication and everyone will see the evidence that the Saudi government had nothing to do with it,’ Brennan said in an interview with Saudi-owned Arabiya TV.
A secret plan to open Britain’s borders to 1.5million Turks was revealed today after British diplomats said the move would act as a ‘symbolic gesture to Turkey’.
Senior diplomats advised ministers that the EU’s proposals to grant visa-free travel to Turkey’s 75million population in the borderless Schengen zone could lead to the UK giving the same status to 1.5million ‘special passport holders’.
EU officials have also quietly delayed the publication of of documents on the visa-free deal with Turkey until after June 23 to avoid deterring British voters from staying in the EU, according to reports.
An Israeli settler ran over a flock of sheep belonging to a Palestinian shepherd near the al-Zubeidat village in the occupied West Bank district of Jericho on Friday, causing the death of 25 of the sheep, according to Palestinian sources.
Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that an Israeli settler was driving at a high speed and ran over the flock of sheep while they were crossing the road.
US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director John Brennan said that the 9/11 Investigative Commission had not found proofs of Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the terrorist attacks in New York in 2001.
The demonstration was organized by the alliance “Stop Ramstein – No Drone War”, which says the Ramstein base relays information between operators in the US and unmanned drone aircraft on missions over Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria and other places.
What does the post-mainstream era hold for journalism? Can censorship exist in an era of total access to information? Where does freedom of expression begin and where does it end?
These were just three of the important questions addressed at the “New Era of Journalism” conference held in Moscow this week, an event which brought together leading journalists from 32 countries and also featured a video link up with Wikileaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
Opening the proceedings, Dmitry Kiselev, Director General of the Rossiya Segodnya news organization, said that since 2001 the US had interfered with and destroyed a number of countries around the world with wars and interventions based on lies. These lies, such as the blatantly false claim that Iraq had WMDs which could be launched within 45 minutes, were promoted by US State Department/NATO-friendly news channels and other media as proven facts which they clearly were not.
If there is one victory we can claim here on the internet, it is that we have forever removed the ability of government to lie to their people with impunity. Absent that, there will be fewer wars.
Already we see the elites trying to roll the world back to pre-internet days, much as the elites in Gutenberg’s time tried to roll back his making books affordable to the middle classes. But like that previous effort, the attempt to reverse progress is doomed to fail. The elites will have to adjust to the new reality of a public aware and on the lookout for their lies, or they will stop being the elites.
Interesting news this week as Belgium-based Optima Bank has been shut down by both the National Bank of Belgium (which also acts as the Belgian regulating body) as well as the ECB. According to the national supervisor, the bank would have been unable to meet its commitments to its clients and was forced to cease all banking activities after some potentially fraudulent transaction were unveiled. It’s surprising to see the main media have tried to keep this silent as even the website of the National Bank of Belgium didn’t bother to issue the press release in English (whereas all other press releases on the home page can be read in English). There’s no statement from the ECB either, nor has this news been translated on the English version of website of the state-owned national television station.
All Wars Are (((Banker))) Wars!!!

The National Security Agency is researching opportunities to collect foreign intelligence — including the possibility of exploiting internet-connected biomedical devices like pacemakers, according to a senior official. “We’re looking at it sort of theoretically from a research point of view right now,” Richard Ledgett, the NSA’s deputy director, said at a conference on military technology at Washington’s Newseum on Friday.
General David Petraeus was confronted by a reporter outside the Bilderberg confab Saturday.
General Petraeus had to resign as a result of an email scandal, though Hillary Clinton is currently involved in a massive email scandal, but is still allowed to run for President.
Key Bilderberg figurehead Henry Kissinger was captured on film walking slowly while clinching to a wheelchair as protestors tore into him verbally from behind a security fence at the 2016 Bilderberg conference which end Sunday.
Evidence was presented at the postwar Nuremberg trials that German researchers had developed a process for the production of soap from human bodies.
Note: Article is biased why can’t they just say it was a lie!
Webmaster addition: DNA tests have confirmed the soap was actually made from pigs, not humans.
This was a recent graduation ceremony for Magshimim (which roughly translates as “fulfilment”), the three-year after-school programme for 16 to 18-year-old students with exceptional computer coding and hacking skills. Magshimim serves as a feeder system for potential recruits to Unit 8200, the Israeli military’s legendary high-tech spy agency, considered by intelligence analysts to be one of the most formidable of its kind in the world. Unit 8200, or shmone matayim as it’s called in Hebrew, is the equivalent of America’s National Security Agency and the largest single military unit in the Israel Defence Forces.
It is also an elite institution whose graduates, after leaving service, can parlay their cutting-edge snooping and hacking skills into jobs in Israel, Silicon Valley or Boston’s high-tech corridor. The authors of Start-up Nation, the seminal 2009 book about Israel’s start-up culture, described 8200 and the Israeli military’s other elite units as “the nation’s equivalent of Harvard, Princeton and Yale”.
Former Labour leader Lord Kinnock of Bedwellty, his wife Lady Kinnock of Holyhead and son Stephen Kinnock, Labour MP for Aberavon, have all been busy banging the drum for Remain.
It’s amusing to remember, however, that it was not always so in their household. Forty-one years ago, Neil Kinnock was a leading figure in the campaign for Britain to vote to leave the then European Economic Community. He believed then that it threatened British jobs and industry.Now, he is vigorously promoting the opposite view. So what could he possibly have seen on the EU gravy train — which has enriched his family by many millions of pounds — to make him change his mind?
…”highly stealthy keystroke loggers” are disguising themselves as USB phone chargers to log and decrypt keystrokes typed into wireless keyboards then transmit the data to the bad guys over cellular networks.
During the “6-Day War”, Israel, hoping to put the blame on Egypt, attacked the American non-combat surveillance ship with aircraft and torpedo boats, killing 34 sailors and wounding 171 more. The dastardly attack in international waters was preceded by as much as 10 hours of close surveillance. Israeli vultures had circled Liberty on many different occasions before attacking.
Radio operators in Spain, Germany, Lebanon and aboard Liberty itself all heard the pilots report back to their headquarters that this was an American ship. Then came the vicious attack, which was finally cut short when it was thought that American help was on its way. Because Liberty failed to sink, the Israeli government had to confess its dirty deed — concocting an elaborate story of “mistaken identity.”

US “leaders” threaten more unlawful war (here, here, here, here) on Iran, the following three points document that the ongoing “reasons” to war-murder Iranians are known lies as they are being told. In context, we know now from official US government reports that all “reasons” for war on Iraq were known to be lies as they were told:
Yet another famous “Holocaust survivor” in the US, 90-year-old Joseph Hirt, who has spent fifteen years lecturing schools about his “escape from Auschwitz,” has been shown to be a fantasist liar who invented everything.
A Jewish woman who escaped the gas chambers of Auschwitz is preparing to celebrate her 101st birthday
Klara Markus, 100, from Sighetu Marma?iei, in Maramure? in northern Romania, survived three Holocaust concentration camps before the Second World War was over.
Mrs Markus, who had been imprisoned in Dachau and Ravensbruck before being sent to Auschwitz, survived the Nazi German camp in occupied Poland because the Nazis ran out of gas.
After all of the recent coverage Intellihub News & Politics has given to the Targeted Individual community, exposing the Deep State for what it’s worth, the NY Times recently came out with a hit piece in an attempt to take away the validity of the matter.
An under-the-radar startup funded by billionaire Eric Schmidt has become a major technology vendor for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, underscoring the bonds between Silicon Valley and Democratic politics.
The Groundwork, according to Democratic campaign operatives and technologists, is part of efforts by Schmidt—the executive chairman of Google parent-company Alphabet—to ensure that Clinton has the engineering talent needed to win the election. And it is one of a series of quiet investments by Schmidt that recognize how modern political campaigns are run, with data analytics and digital outreach as vital ingredients that allow candidates to find, court, and turn out critical voter blocs.
In the fight against Daesh, also known as IS/Islamic State, Syrian forces have cut off a major road that the terrorists group used to access Turkey.
That means the Turkish officers leading the terrorist groups are cut off from escape. The next step is to capture them and show the world that Turkey has been assisting the US in their not-very-covert war against Assad.
US intelligence agencies have ramped up their operations intended to remove Bolivian President Evo Morales from office. All options are on the table, including assassination. Barack Obama, who sees the weakening of Latin America’s “hostile bloc of populist states” as one of his administration’s foreign-policy victories, intends to buoy this success before stepping down.
Washington also feels under the gun in Bolivia because of China’s successful expansion in the country. Morales is steadily strengthening his financial, economic, trade, and military relationship with Beijing. Chinese businesses in La Paz are thriving – making investments and loans and taking part in projects to secure a key position for Bolivia in the modernization of the continent’s transportation industry.
China is expanding in Bolivia (and elsewhere) because they have products to sell that people want to buy.
Newsmax Finance Insider Larry Kudlow is fed up with the way global central banks have been trying to revive the economy.
Nothing they have done has worked. So there’s really only one option left, he told CNBC.
“Overthrow the establishment. Now’s the time,” said the CNBC senior contributor who also hosts a syndicated radio-talk show. “Overthrow the establishment,” urged Kudlow, who was a former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan.
“We need a different model. In other words, zero interest rates, or negative interest rates, and tons and tons of government spending for all these G-7 countries have not worked,” he said.
All legislative powers herein granted shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives. Unfortunately, thanks to years of the increasingly ignorant masses, our republic has evolved from a system government that at least made an effort to operate under the premise of protecting American interests into a dangerous enemy of those of us born in this republic turned mob ruled democracy.
The president has gotten in on this horrible trend by acting like a one-man band government entity that legislates through an executive order avalanche which has placed unparalleled levels of economic, moral, and military dangers against our nation. President Obama has done more to protect and defend his fellow Muslims and their interests in one year than for the United States over eight years.

A biotechnologist says the media are misrepresenting the National Academy of Sciences report when it comes to GMO food safety This week the Spanish newspaper El País published an article called “Science confirms that GMOs are as safe as other foods”, commenting on the latest report by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), titled “Genetically…
The Russian military involvement in assistance of the government of Syria had led to a sharp deterioration of relations between Russia and Turkey, which until recently had been seen as if not an ally then at least a solid partner. While the reasons for Turkish president Erdogan’s betrayal of trust with Russia are still not fully known, this unexpected turn of events had instantly elevated the importance of the Russian military contingent in Armenia, a country which is not only tied to Russia by a range of collective security treaties but also shares a long border with Turkey, which is after all a member of NATO, as well as with Azerbaijan and Georgia, both of which have been building their ties to NATO in recent years. Which means that Armenia is the Transcaucasus equivalent of Belarus–a buffer state between the suddenly hostile NATO and Russia.
However, Netanyahu’s visit to Moscow does look like a failure from the point of view of foreign policy. In an official statement for the press, President Putin spoke about “open” and “constructive” nature of the talks with the Israeli PM. In the diplomatic world, though, when negotiations are held in a friendly and even neutral fashion, they usually say that the talks were held “in a friendly atmosphere.” This is something that we have not heard from the Kremlin this time. In other words, there is no understanding between Russian and Israeli leaders.
In other words, Putin refused Netanyahu’s request for unfettered access to the skies above Syria and Lebanon.
On June 8, 1967, the Israeli Air Force attacked an American reconnaissance ship, USS Liberty, killing 34 American sailors and wounding 174. Over a period of an hour-and-a-half after Israeli pilots identified the ship as American, while the sailors battled to save the ship and their lives, the Israelis attacked the ship from the air and torpedo boats, hitting it with armor-piercing rounds, at least one bomb and one torpedo, and strafing the lifeboats. The Israelis wanted no survivors to embarrass them. Israeli jets had also targeted the antenna, to keep the ship from calling for help. But, as James Bamford recounts, a couple of radiomen patched together enough equipment and broken antennae to get a distress call off to the Sixth Fleet, despite intense jamming by the Israelis. “Any station, this is Rockstar,” [radioman] Halman shouted, using the Liberty’s voice call sign. “We are under attack by unidentified jet aircraft and require immediate assistance.”
The latest attempt of the Zionist lobby in Canada to shut down attempts to organize peaceful pressure against the state of Israel’s systematic violations of international law came at what must have seemed an opportune moment. On May 17, the day that Bill 202, “the Standing Up Against Anti-Semitism Act, 2016: An Act respecting participation in boycotts and and other anti-Semitic actions”, was presented to the Ontario provincial legislature in Toronto and quickly passed first reading, Ontario Premier Katherine Wynne was in Israel, where she warmly shook the hand of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The “anti-Semitism” witch hunt in the UK Labour Party against leftist supporters of Palestinian rights is continuing to claim new victims.
The latest is Marlene Ellis, a Black activist within the Momentum grouping, who was suspended on Friday. Ellis told The Electronic Intifada her suspension was an attack on free speech.
But campaigners have scored the first win in pushing back.
A Jewish activist expelled from the Labour Party for referring to the transatlantic slave trade as an “African holocaust” was cleared of anti-Semitism and readmitted to the party at the end of May.
Jackie Walker told The Electronic Intifada on Monday she had yet to receive an explanation for her suspension.
Twenty years ago, Haaretz ran a series of reports about the disappearance hundreds of Mizrahi infants, most from Yemenite families, during Israel’s early years. Were they kidnapped and put up for adoption? Had they died and been buried without their parents’ knowledge? Or is there a third possibility?
According to a Kurdish source, French forces stationed in northern Syria have begun constructing a military base near the city of Kobani in Aleppo province.
It should be pointed out that Syria has not asked France, nor given permission, for a military base in Aleppo.
So, how would you feel if Mexico just decided to build a military base in Texas without permission from the US?
Russia says Turkey’s military advisers are commanding Daesh terrorists operating around Syria’s northwestern city of Aleppo, which has been the scene of fierce fighting over the past few weeks.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Friday that up to 2,000 militants are taking part in the Aleppo battle based on mass media reports.
“Journalists say Turkey’s military advisers are commanding them,” she said
If there’s one thing to take away from this years Bilderberg meeting it is that the elite is scared to death of the precariat.
That’s a term coined by the British economist Guy Standing, referring to a class of people who feel less confident about society in general, either because of underemployment, poor economic conditions, political disenfranchisement, or to be perfectly frank, because they realize modern civilization is a fraud.
In other words, the precariat are people who are beaten down by the system and who have woken up to some degree as a result. If you are reading these words, you are most likely considered part of the precariat, and the elite is afraid of this group of people arguably more than anything else.
Those who promote what Jewish-American scholar Michael Goldberg calls “the Holocaust cult” (in his book Why Should Jews Survive?) have for decades sought to make the story more “relevant” and “meaningful” for non-Jewish Americans by appealing to patriotic sentiments. This has meant, for example, emphasizing the role of American troops as liberators of German concentration camps during the final weeks of the Second World War.
Soon after liberation, surviving children of the Auschwitz camp walk out of the children’s barracks. Poland, after January 27, 1945. U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, courtesy of Lydia Chagoll.

Lies lies and more lies.
Two deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department showed up at a house for a domestic disturbance call on Monday. Three dogs ran out into the yard, two small ones followed by a third larger one that the deputies labeled “immediately aggressive” before shooting and killing the animal.
On the eve of World War II, the United States was still mired in the Great Depression and found itself facing war on two fronts with Japan and Germany. However bleak the outlook, it was nothing compared to the outlook today.
Most of the files should have been accessible after 15 years, with the most top-secret documents locked away for up to 70 years. In many cases, Akevot says, the classified status of documents has expired, but they have still not been made public. Reasons for denial of access are rarely given.
In other instances, documents that were already declassified – some of them decades ago – have been re-sealed and are now unavailable.
Despite the mounting secrecy, historic war crimes are still coming to light.
Questions have been raised by lawyers over the accuracy of speed cameras after a driver doing just 29 miles an hour was clocked as reaching 85 mph.
Delivery driver Thomas Baird was sent a court summons accusing him of speeding in a 30 mph zone in Talke, Staffs.
Now Staffordshire Police have withdrawn the prosecution and paid out £2,000 to cover the driver’s legal costs.
The error has raised questions over the reliability of the camera and whether other drivers have been wrongly prosecuted.
A pan-European survey by the Pew Research Center released today found that 61pc of French voters have an “unfavourable” view, compared to 48pc in the UK.
A clear majority is opposed to “ever closer union” and wants powers returned to the French parliament, a finding that sits badly with the insistence by President Francois Hollande that “more Europe” is the answer to the EU’s woes.
“It is a protest against the elites,” said Professor Brigitte Granville, a French economist at Queen Mary University of London. “There are 5000 people in charge of everything in France. They are all linked by school and marriage, and they are tight.”
