THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
“We find it alarming that intelligent young people setting out to study evidence-based subjects should be perfectly willing to admit to not accepting a major theory in science, not on the basis of a consideration of the evidence, but because of an inculcated belief.” — Professor Roger Downie
Andrew Reid, the New York public school history teacher who says he “believes in truth” has posted his own account of his very thorough investigation into the tales of holocaust survlievor Joseph Hirt on Scribd. online and it is a bombshell. Reid has done in this instance what the media and the schools continually fail to do before they publish a story or allow someone to speak to their students – scrutinize and vet the extravagant claims of holocaust survivors. Of course, the media doesn’t do that because they know the claims won’t hold up; thus one can only conclude the media is helping to defraud the public on the subject of Holocaust. The schools are doing the same out of laziness and mental incompetence.
Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has hinted he could call for ex-PM Tony Blair to face war crime charges for his role in the Iraq War, prompting Labour Blairites to threaten resignation.
In a significant reversal of policy, President Barack Obama’s administration will now all American soldiers to fight alongside Afghan troops in combat situations, and will allow close air support in combat. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter confirmed the change in policy, and said,
This is using the forces we have… in a better way, basically, as we go through this fighting season, rather than being simply reactive. This makes good sense. It’s a good use of the combat power that we have there.
By “fighting season,” Carter is referring to the fact that the Taliban are most active during the summer months.
The change in policy comes one day after John Sopko, appointed by Obama as Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), said that the situation in Afghanistan is continuing to deteriorate:
Folks, President Obama has just made one thing painfully clear: we are never leaving Afghanistan!!
Too many corporations, particularly those which are a part of the military industrial complex are making a killing (frequently, in the literal sense) from this war; the cheap heroin is flowing from Afghanistan poppies, to be used for off the shelf US covert operations; and neither the US military or government can ever admit it has made an horrific mistake with the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.
Hillary Clinton’s statement on the mass murder in Orlando is mostly a confection of the empty, saccharine pieties for which the entire American political class is known – but it concluded with a revealing statement.
Mass surveillance has, for the larger segment of the U.S. populace, become an integral facet in the illusory feeling of security. But does it serve any purpose at all — other than providing the Surveillance State a handy excuse for keeping tabs on anyone it chooses, while simultaneously quashing every one of our paltry remaining legal rights?
While it may be comforting to feel the overarching blanket of indiscriminate surveillance keeps us all safe from harm, the deaths of at least 50 people in an Orlando nightclub prove indisputably the contrary.
In fact, the National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation — and, indeed, every agency — attempting to employ the weary excuse they spy on you to keep you safe can be disproven in the events of the early morning hours this past Sunday.
All of the surveillance the US government has done, all the alleged “intelligence” the US government has allegedly gathered, failed utterly to prevent this horrific attack on this club in Orlando.
So, is more surveillance, and the continuing devolution into a total, fascistic police state the answer for this country, in terms of allegedly “protecting” its citizens?!?
In two simple words, “HELL, no!!”
Mike and I did a little island hopping to visit a friend recently.
And both times, coming and going, I was patted down.
And I so wanted to ask the TSA people who did this, but understood I couldn’t, because they would most probably, punitively, have caused me to miss my flight, “Do you have any understanding of how utterly stupid this is?!? I am a Christian pacifist activist, who directs a church choir at a local Methodist faith community. What do you think I’m going to do, have my choir sing “notes of mass destruction”?!? And BTW, every time I have to run the gauntlet through TSA to catch a flight, I am furious that I am being treated as though this country were under Code Napoleon law, where one is considered guilty until proven innocent. American jurisprudence takes the absolutely the opposite stand. When, please, did the law of the land in the USA stop being the law of the land?!?”
Of course, that dialogue was completely internal, and I just smiled at the logic-challenged individuals who believed, for even one second, that I could possibly be a “baddie”.
But the surveillance, pat-downs, and general demeanings of average American citizens by police-state representatives doesn’t translate, ever, into any more security: the incident in Orlando just proved that.
These measures are simply meant to intimidate citizens into swallowing whatever the US government dictates, period, end of discussion, without any meaningful dialogue, or critical thinking.
Welcome to Amerika, my friends: the land of the cowed, and the home of the surveilled!!
Breaking video from FBI press conference…
The companies were drilling lateral wells, which turn 90 degrees and travel for kilometres underground, extending under people’s barns and homes. (Tight oil costs more to extract and produces lower quantities of oil.)
As industry fracked these deep, far-reaching wells with millions of gallons of water, toxic chemicals, and sand under high pressure and then burned off unwanted raw gas, the Hawkwoods and many of their neighbours began complaining about noxious emissions and earth tremors.
Some officials with the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) initially responded to general complaints in the region by saying fracking was proven and safe and that it couldn’t cause earthquakes — claims now proven false by a variety of scientific studies.
FBI Foreknowledge, ISIS Sympathies, Taliban Ties
What may at first sound like an instance of senseless violence, brings with it a number of other questions. For instance, the FBI was already well aware of Mateen and his connections to radical jihad and terrorism. According to CNN’s article, “50 Killed in Florida Nightclub, Shooter Pledged ISIS Allegiance,” two officials tell CNN that the FBI had investigated Mateen at some point for possibly having ties to or sympathizing with Islamic extremism. A law enforcement official said there were two cases opened involving Mateen but the probes didn’t result in enough evidence to charge him with anything.
To the LGBT community in Orlando and beyond: you are all absolutely in my prayers, and this massacre should never have been allowed to happen, period, end of discussion.
And the FBI?!? It should now be known as the Federal Bureau of Idiocy; the Federal Bureau of Intimidation; the Federal Bureau of Incompetency; or the Federal Bureau of Impotence.
Take your pick.
Functioning intelligence agencies, which actually CAN protect the people of their respective countries around the world, are collectively shaking their heads on this.
Please note that this agency, and this entire government, under President Obama’s watch, couldn’t (or wouldn’t) protect you from this act of terror, even though the FBI had interviewed this guy several times.
And remember; so-called “gun free zones” create soft targets for bad guys to hit.
Just look at Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago, also an allegedly “gun-free zone”. As reported this morning by chicago.cbslocal.com this morning on last weekend’s gun violence:
So, after the horrific numbness starts to lift; after the last memorial services are done to commemorate the fallen; after the last candles go out; and and after the last flowers are placed in loving memory of those whose lives got snuffed out, you, and we, need to delve deep into some kick-ass logic….
And there are a couple of terribly uncomfortable questions you have to ask yourself, when something like this happens in this country and beyond: who benefits from this tragedy, and how are they going to spin this?!?!?
Of course, there will be a demand for more stringent gun control in this country, but that never, ever affects the bad people, who are going to use guns to get what they want anyway.
The US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan has gone from bad to worse; will this be used as the “justification” for yet more US blood and money spent in this hubristic war of conquest, which has gone so horribly badly?!?
Right now, I would not bet against this; but only time will tell.
But in the meanwhile, to the members of the LGBT community in Orlando and beyond: I would strongly caution you to choose not to continue to be potential victims.
The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution was written into the Bill of Rights by people who understood the evil and misery which could be caused by governmental overreach, and the need for a population to be able to protect itself against that, or the evil madness of someone coming to hurt you, or people you care about, as happened in in Orlando.
Buy a licensed firearm, and get trained in how to use it effectively and responsibly.
Because let’s be clear here; one person, with a concealed carry permit, could have prevented the scope of damage which happened here in a heartbeat; far fewer would have been killed, or injured.
Through this incident, United States Government has demonstrated, beyond a reasonable doubt, that it is completely incapable of protecting you.
The shooting event in Orlando on June 12th demonstrated features that were present in numerous recent terrorist acts. For example the suspect was quickly killed and the official account immediately attempted to blame the attacks on Islam. However, as with most terrorism in the U.S., the suspect Omar Mateen had suspicious links to the FBI. He also worked for a company with suspicious links to prior terrorist events.
“He kept on shooting and shooting and shooting, rapid fire,’’ Gonzalez said, “and he’d change (clips), put in more ammunition — bud-dudda. I could smell the ammo in the air.’’
He said he heard another gun from a different direction, so he wonders if there were two gunmen.
“Everybody dropped to the floor. We were trying to look for an exit. But the main exit was right next to the entrance where the shooter was shooting,’’ he said.
“In a moment of desperation we were all crawling on the floor trying to find a place to exit. I looked to my right and I could see people going through some curtains. We were digging through the curtains and found a door.’’
But he said the door was blocked by a man. He wasn’t sure if it was a club security person or an accomplice to the gunmen.
Yet another report of multiple shooters and someone blocking the exit.
‘I saw two guys and it was constant, like ‘pow, pow, pow’, witness says
The US media has already Orwellized the reports of multiple shooters (plus one guy holding the doors shut from outside) but the foreign press is still reporting it.
We need that here in the US!
One thing to consider about the Orlando night club shooting:
Is it not interesting that it serves Obama’s gay agenda and Obama’s gun control agenda in one event? And the guy shows up with an ASSAULT RIFLE? Why are all these attacks gun attacks? When are we going to finally see a variation in the official story, such as “Man pumps up Weed-B-Gone sprayer full of gas and flame throws night club?” Come on now, the “assault rifle” meme is getting a little bit repetitive. Assault rifles are really not the norm among gun owners, why is it always THAT? And if anything did happen at that night club and it is not all a false flag, it was almost certainly an MK patsy. Time to comb craigslist for “gigs” and look for terror training drills in Orlando. Yep. That again.
US President Barack Obama should “immediately” step down following the deadly attack at a nightclub in Florida, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says.
The launching of the European missile defense system (Aegis) by the United States in May has repeatedly been criticized by Russia as an attempt by the US to take away first mover advantage in the event that the US ever decided to attack.
While Russia has already indicated that the deployment of of Iskander missile systems would be one certain response to neutralize the the anti-ballistic missile defense system, Russia has wasted no time in developing future responses.
When a crazed Jew attacked and killed a participant in last year’s Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem, it was called murder.
When Timothy McVeigh, Christian White guy, killed 168 w/truck bomb in Oklahoma, nobody blamed Christianity or the Bible. he was called a mass-murderer.
BUT, when a crazed, homophobic Muslim kills 50 people in a Gay Club in Orlando, it is called an act of terrorism.
Both the Democrats and the Republicans were quick to condemn the attack yesterday as an act of terrorism. Both are blind to the reality of hatred.
It’s too soon to know whether Sunday’s Orlando incident was terrorism or false flag deception.
Yet it has distinct earmarks of the latter, likely the latest example of domestic state terror, another fear-mongering pretext for out-of-control militarism, endless wars of choice, and domestic repression, America more a police state than free society on a slippery slope toward full-blown tyranny.
The Orlando shooter, Mr Omar Mateen, was employed by the US subsidiary of G4S, which is Her Majesty’s government contractor that runs prisons, checks criminal records, supplies security for government ministers – and, most importantly, works hand-in-hand with other security contractors, many of whom are owned by parent corporations in ISRAEL. Mr Omar Mateen worked for G4S for almost ten years in a trusted position, a stone’s throw from the G4S U.S. offices. G4S has run security contracts for the government of Israel, and, as Wackenhut/G4S Ltd., has also had sensitive security contracts in Pakistan, which is the nation that provided support and bank transfers to the 911 attackers.
Eyewitness testifies that 5 people were involved with the Pulse attack in total
Witness tells ABC News that he played dead for three hours to stay alive, and he heard the conversations from two phone calls made by Omar Mateen during the siege.
This could blow the investigation wide open…
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.
The attack on a gay club in Orlando in which 50 people were killed and more than 50 wounded — now the largest mass shooting in U.S. history — demonstrates how potential threats are escaping the FBI’s vast counterterrorism dragnet. While it’s unclear whether gunman Omar Mateen’s inspiration was hatred of gays, the Islamic State, or something else, attackers like him are the intended targets of the FBI’s post-9/11 prevention program. Federal law enforcement’s top priority today is to stop the attacker of tomorrow. But Mateen’s mass shooting is an example of how dangerous men slip past the FBI’s watch while federal agents focus on targets of questionable capacity. Born in the United States to parents from Afghanistan, Mateen was reportedly a “known quantity” to the FBI.
Last month we reported that citizens in Venezuela had finally become so desperate for food that angry mobs flooded the streets and looted all of the supermarkets that were rumored to still have anything left on their shelves.
Not long after, tired and hungry protesters took to the streets of Caracas once again, this time marching toward the presidential palace as they chanted “No more talk – we want food!.” The mob was able to get within about six blocks of the palace before police in riot gear blocked the way, and began to shoot tear gas into the crowd to disperse the protest.
And now, as president Maduro remains defiant on allowing a referendum to take place to vote on his ouster, food riots and violent looting are taking place every day in a stark reminder of just how far the socialist utopia has fallen.
Send this to everyone you know in Great Britain!
Jimmy Carter’s Former Strategist And Pollster: ‘Clinton Cash’ Scandal Is “Worse Than Watergate” .. “They Were Selling Out The National Interests Of The United States Directly To Adversaries And Others For Money.”
“This is the greatest scandal in the history of the United States,” he said. “They all ought to be indicted. This is worse than Watergate.”
Turns out that the supposed perpetrator did have a legal firearm license. But he should not have had it. He was known to be a wife beater and he was reportedly mentally unstable. Under Florida law, both of these conditions should have resulted in his firearms license been revoked. In other words, even if this shooter purchased his guns legally, his license should have been revoked. When an alcoholic continues to drive around in his car and ends up killing somebody, does anybody suggest that cars are to blame? Of course not. And yet in the case of mass shootings guns are inevitably blamed for the violence. So what is the political agenda here?
Facebook and Twitter have recently deleted thousands of posts, pages and accounts in response to demands from the Israeli ministry of justice, Quds Press reported on Wednesday.
Zbigniew Brzezinski was the first National Security advisor to work with Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Actually, the Carter administration -meaning Brzezinski and his bosses Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and David Rockefeller at the Trilateral Commission – began funding terrorists in Afghanistan to force the Soviets to invade Afghanistan. That was before Osama bin Laden and his Arab friends showed up to repel the Communists that the world’s financial elite had begged to attack the Muslims of Afghanistan.
Along with several other ATCs, he viewed the radar tape of the incident. According to Johnson, “A primary radar return (ASR-9) indicated vertical movement intersecting TWA 800.”
An advanced radar system, the Northrop Grumman ASR-9 is able to detect a “target” in severe clutter even when the target has no transponder. The absence of a transponder is what distinguishes a “primary radar return” from a “secondary” one. In others words, the radar picked up a small, unidentified, ascending object intersecting TWA 800 in the second before the 747 “disappeared from radar.”
After Johnson and his supervisor watched the video tape replay with audio, they turned to each other and said in unison, “What the f***!” Asked by his supervisor if he had ever seen anything like this before, Johnson said yes — while in the Navy days doing missile test fires at sea.
The Oakland police sex scandal is ricocheting across the East Bay as the woman at the center of it now says she had sex with two dozen current and former officers from five departments — from Richmond to Livermore. And sources say that Oakland police’s botched handling of the investigation is what precipitated Chief Sean Whent’s sudden departure this week at the behest of the federal monitor overseeing the department.
Which means that large numbers of Oakland Police Officers are wide open to blackmail.
It takes some balls for a rabbi to stand in front of the American people and sing 4 bars of Kadish, the Hebrew prayer for the dead. But it takes more than balls for a rabbi to stand in front of the nation and fib for eight minutes. Rabbi Michael Lerner has accomplished both.

It’s no secret that President Barack Obama’s Veterans Affairs (VA) agency has not treated our veterans well.
Long lines and secret waiting lists have resulted in the deaths of countless veterans. The same men and women who risk their lives and survived war have been mistreated and allowed to die by greedy Obama VA bureaucrats.
Now, there is some justice… The former head of of the VA in Cleveland will be sentenced to prison for years!
It has only been a day, and already suspicious details are emerging from the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
First, you have this report a live TV caller gave on a mainstream media channel claiming to have been inside the club when the shooting occurred. He said that when people tried to escape, someone was holding the door closed. As soon as he says this, the reporter “loses him” and they change the subject.
The best reporting on the depth of America’s dictatorship is probably that being done by Atlanta Georgia’s NBC-affiliated, Gannett-owned, TV Channel “11 Alive,” WXIA television, its “The Investigators” series of local investigative news reports, which show, up close and at a cellularly detailed level, the way things actually work in today’s America. Although it’s only local, it displays what meets the legal standards of the U.S. federal government in actually any state in the union; so, it exposes the character of the U.S. government, such that what’s shown to be true here.
LEAVING the European Union would stop Brussels bosses forming a “dangerous” EU army, two senior French admirals have said.

Recent Bloodbath Looks Almost Identical to FBI-Staged Entrapment Cases in 2015.
I have watched hours of the “Orlando Massacre- the deadliest in U.S. History”. Seems we have another Adam Lanza on our hands. How did this “shooter” get so MUCH ammo to kill 50 people, wound 53 others, AND have a shootout with 11 cops and 3 sheriffs? Supposedly he has ONLY an AR-15 which shoot .223s by the way- VERY fast but, very small bullet. 223s are made to injure not kill. See a great documentary called, “Assaulted” for further explanation. On TV. What did YOU see? THINK! I saw ONE guy with what seemed to be an injury on his thigh. The rest? Well, you tell me what did you see?
As more and more evidence emerges regarding the mass shooting in an Orlando gay club that resulted in the death of at least 52 people and many more injured, signs are increasingly pointing toward the possibility of a false flag operation.
Already, a number of points lend credence to those who might suggest that intelligence agencies more so than desert-dwelling terrorist organizations are responsible for organizing and directing the attacks.
He was also bipolar, Mateen’s ex-wife, Sitora Yusufiy, told reporters in Boulder, Colorado.
“He was mentally unstable and mentally ill,” Yusufiy said.
Yet another shooter/patsy on prescription psychiatric medications!
Baruch Kappel Goldstein (December 9, 1956 – February 25, 1994) was an American born Israeli physician and mass murderer who killed 29 Muslims during Islamic prayers in the Ibrahimi Mosque (within the Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron in 1994. Goldstein was a member of the Jewish fanatical organization, Jewish Defense League. After killing 29 people and wounding another 150 he was disarmed and beaten to death with a fire extinguisher.

Andy Xie says the world’s elite that are attending the G7, G20, Davos and other wasteful meetings are wrong to try to pin the blame for the turmoil on people’s psychology; all signs point to a prolonged period of global stagnation and instability.
Before the current G7 meetings waste of time, The G20 working group meeting in Shanghai didn’t come up with any constructive proposals for reviving the global economy and, instead, complained that the recent market turmoil didn’t reflect the “underlying fundamentals of the global economy”. The oil price has declined by 70 per cent since June 2014, while the Brazilian real has halved, and the Russian rouble is down by 60 per cent. The global economy is on the cusp of another recession, and these important people blamed it all on some sort of psychological problem of the people.
Assange said it was highly unlikely that the US attorney general, Loretta Lynch, would indict Clinton. “She’s not going to indict Hillary Clinton, that’s not possible. It’s not going to happen. But the FBI can push for concessions from a Clinton government,” he said.
The list of heavy hitters who are saying bad things about this world and its financial markets – while acting aggressively on their pessimism – is growing to alarming proportions. A few examples:
Submitted by Tyler Durden:
On Tuesday evening, we asked what would happen if emerging markets joined China in dumping US Treasurys. For months we’ve documented the PBoC’s liquidation of its vast stack of US paper. Back in July for instance, we noted that China had dumped a record $143 billion in US Treasurys in three months via Belgium, leaving Goldman speechless for once.
We followed all of this up this week by noting that thanks to the new FX regime (which, in theory anyway, should have required less intervention), China has likely sold somewhere on the order of $100 billion in US Treasurys in the past two weeks alone in open FX ops to steady the yuan. Put simply, as part of China’s devaluation and subsequent attempts to contain said devaluation, China has been purging an epic amount of Treasurys.
A self-styled philanthropist, billionaire, and disruptor of legitimately elected governments, George Soros has returned to the trading game after having taken a long break. George Soros, who enjoys spreading unnecessary market turmoil and unhappiness in markets and politics, has decided that the world needs some more economic collapse stories.
Hint: It may be time to get into gold soon, because even if Soros is wrong on economic collapse, he has the financial firepower to make it happen if he needs it.
Microsoft has purchased the social networking service LinkedIn for $26.2 billion, equating to $196 per share. The network’s co-founder has described the deal as a “re-founding moment” for the service.
The two companies have entered what they call a “definitive agreement” that will see Jeff Weiner staying on as CEO of LinkedIn but will now be answerable to Microsoft boss Satya Nadella.
All of my life I have confronted the vast bulk of humanity living in a false reality created by self-serving powerful interest groups and the government that they control. People believe the lies that define their reality, because they lack the education and the emotional and intellectual strength to confront the obvious lies.
Every truth-teller confronts this barrier every day of his or her life.
Such historical deceit is a routine part of the relentless “Holocaust” campaign, which plays such an important role in our society because it’s an expression of Jewish-Zionist power, and is meant to further Jewish-Zionist interests.
Italy’s Parliament approved a bill making spreading Holocaust denial illegal.
Note: Why make asking a historical question a criminal offense. Answer because the lies have to be protected from the truth.
According to heavily censored eyewitness reports, totally suppressed from the mainstream, there were likely several other radicalized perpetrators involved with Saturday night’s terror attack, which led deaths of 53 Club-goers at Pulse and over 50 others being injured.
The hi-tech device steals details such as the card number and the person’s name and address contained on the credit or debit card.

With ten days to go until the referendum, how much are David Cameron and our partners keeping back from voters about the EU’s plans for the future?
The question is brought into sharp focus by yesterday’s leaks of British diplomats’ cables, discussing policies not intended to be publicly aired before the vote is safely out of the way.
In one, our representatives in Amsterdam say the Dutch have agreed to co-operate in delaying controversial Brussels announcements until after June 23.
In another, the Foreign Office’s people in Ankara advise ministers to consider offering visa-free access to as many as 1.5million Turks with ‘special passports’, to complement the EU’s plans to open up the border-free Schengen area to Turkey’s population of 80 million.
For decades doctors have prescribed statins to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes caused by ‘bad’ cholesterol in the blood.
But now a team of scientists say taking the pills may be a waste of time for the over-60s – because they found no link between high levels of LDL cholesterol and heart disease.
In fact, this ‘bad’ cholesterol may even have a protective effect by warding off infections and disease, including cancer.
Two drug companies, Genentech and OSI Pharmaceuticals, have agreed to pay $67 million to settle a whistleblower lawsuit accusing them of misleading doctors about the effectiveness of a cancer drug called Tarceva. – By agreeing to the settlement, neither company admitted any guilt.
The case against G4S is unanswerable. Through its subsidiary G4S Israel, the company is deeply involved in security and military operations in israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, most notably in incarceration facilities for Palestinian political prisoners.
