No-Fly List Under Fire as Evidence Shows it was Used to Recruit Snitches

Joe Wright
Activist Post

Earlier in the year a Malaysian woman became the first to successfully contest having been put on the U.S. secretive No-Fly list. In that case, Rahinah Ibrahim, a student at Stanford in 2005, was detained at San Francisco Airport while en route to Kona, Hawaii as part of a Ph.D. program in architecture and design. She was detained, interrogated, then released after two hours, but subsequently ended up on the No-Fly List . . . for 7 years.

After a lengthy battle, it was admitted that a clerical error led to her addition to the list and that, worse still, the government knew early on that it was a mistake and tried to conceal the error. Ibrahim is still battling over the legal fees in that case, which has revealed yet more potential deception on the part of the U.S. government.

No Reason to Doubt US Running the Show in Ukraine – Lavrov

The visit of US Vice President Joseph Biden to Kiev this week and the subsequent restart of a military operation against protesters is evidence the US is controlling the actions of Ukrainian authorities, Russian Foreign Minister Segei Lavrov said Wednesday.

US Threatens Russia

Washington bears full responsibility for elevating illegitimate fascist putschists to power. Doing so reflects another sordid chapter in US history. For sure, it won’t be the last.

Bullying, bluster and threatening ultimatums define US policy. John Kerry warned Sergei Lavrov.

 

Commentary on the Bill of Rights.

As the United States government continues its war against the nation created in 1779, it has become all too obvious that many Americans, although they will talk about the Bill of Rights, remain unclear as to what it says and what it means. Partly that is due to endless government and corporate media spin, and partly because the language spoken in this nation has changed so much from the time of the writing of the Constitution to the present day, that many people are confused as to what was actually intended. On the occasion of the New York Times publishing an op-ed calling for the abandonment of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, I offer some clarification.

Preparing Ukraine for a Proxy War with Russia

Biden’s visit is not the first time Western representatives have traveled to Kiev in direct support of the “Euromaidan” protests and the subsequent unelected regime that violently seized power. US Senator John McCain would literally take the stage with the ultra-right, Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party leaders as well as meet with “Fatherland Party” member and future “prime minister,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

Drone killing the Fifth Amendment

Imagine this: a president and his top officials as self-professed assassins – and proud of it, even attempting to gain political capital. It’s not that American presidents have never been associated with attempts to target individuals before (but in 1981, by Executive Order, president Ronald Reagan banned assassination by the US government.)

Now, top officials connected to the White House want the public to know that they and the president spend significant time and effort on “targeted killings”. When it comes to this possible future assassination, they seem eager to emphasize via leaks the care they are taking in preparing the way.

In the process, they have produced legalistic documents so secret that they can’t be shown to the public, though their existence and import can indeed be publicized.

RAF Jet Chases Russian Planes Away From UK

Two Russian bombers which flew close to UK airspace have been chased away by an RAF jet fighter.

The aircraft, believed to be Tupolev 95s, were spotted off the coast of northeast Scotland.

They were turned away from Britain when an RAF Typhoon was scrambled from Leuchars airbase, near Dundee.

Crews stationed there are on standby to intercept unidentified aircraft at a moment’s notice.

The incident comes amid heightened international tensions over the situation in Ukraine, following the annexation of Crimea by Russia last month.

Note that the Russian planes never entered British air space but were flying in international air space, which like every other nation they have a right to do.

Russia is clearly testing air defenses around Europe. I think Putin knows that by hook or by crook the US will get their war with Russia!

Did the NSA Blackmail Obama? Whistle-blower Claims NSA Targeted Obama “Word for Word” Beginning in 2004

In what is the most ironic of any of the NSA Prism-gate revelations to date, NSA Whistle-blower Russ Tice has revealed that the NSA began targeting President Obama in 2004 prior to his run for the Illinois Senate seat.

Tice states that the NSA targeted Obama, his spouse, his entire family, and all of Obama’s staff members, and that the monitoring was NOT simply meta data, but that Obama’s communications were targeted by the NSA: ”24/7, word for word what was said and typed into their emails. Was Obama blackmailed? I don’t know the answer to that, but what is the justification for Obama turning against his campaign promises and his supposed love for the Constitution?”

40% of tuna imported to the U.S. from Thailand is illegal or unreported, followed by up to 45% of pollock imports from China, and 70% of salmon imports.

When people talk about illegal trafficking in wildlife, the glistening merchandise laid out on crushed ice in the supermarket seafood counter — from salmon to king crab — probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But 90 percent of U.S. seafood is imported, and according to a new study in the journal Marine Policy, as much as a third of that is caught illegally or without proper documentation.

 

TSA Agents Pat Down 2 & 6-Year-Old Siblings – Caught On Camera

The Secret Silver Stockpile

In the silver market; we have various reasons for believing that the crisis faced by the banksters in terms of evaporating inventories (and stockpiles) is even more severe/desperate than in the gold market, and thus the level of fraud is likely at least as high, if not higher. The starting point in such suspicions is a now-infamous chart on (supposed) “silver inventories” which the One Bank probably wishes its minions had never created.

The sickening plunge in silver inventories between 1990 and 2005 (where inventories collapsed by 90%) meant that we were already at a crisis-point in the silver market nearly a decade ago, whereas it’s only in the last year or two where anecdotal evidence (and the bankers’ own actions) seem to indicate a crisis in gold inventories – yet actual “default” in the gold market likely occurred several years before this.

New Home Sales Collapse To 8 Month Lows

New Home Sales collapsed 14.5% month-over-month to its lowest since July 2013. A mere 384k versus 450k expectations is the biggest miss since July. So much for the Spring buying season… This is a 7 standard deviation miss against the smart economists’ estimates! Whocouldanode that when the free-money sponsored fast money leaves the game that real people with real debt and real wages are simply priced out of buying a new home? Supply of unsold new homes jumps to 6 months, its highest since Oct 2011 (as once again the visible hand’s interference has produced yet another mal-investment boom as the ‘if we build it, they will come’ builders face an ugly reality).

Georgia governor signs bill expanding gun rights

Governor Nathan Deal has signed legislation expanding where people with licenses to carry can bring their guns in Georgia.

A few hundred gun rights advocates gathered to watch Wednesday’s bill signing at an event in Ellijay with top officials including House Speaker David Ralston and bill sponsor Rep. Rick Jasperse.

The bill makes several changes to state law. It allows those with a license to carry to bring a gun into a bar without restriction and into some government buildings that don’t have certain security measures. It also allows religious leaders to decide whether it’s OK for a person with a carry license to bring a gun into their place of worship.

Coup no more? US clears Egypt to receive Apache helicopters

The United States pledged 10 Apache helicopters to Egypt on Tuesday, easing back for the first time on sanctions placed against the country last year following the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi.

Delivery of the choppers is intended to aid in counterterrorism operations, the Pentagon said in a statement Wednesday, but comes only months after the US first suspended military aid to Egypt after the country’s interim government began harshly cracking down on dissidents and protesters.

US Navy cancels charity projects in Crimea

The US Navy has discontinued charity programs in Crimea, canceling the renovation of a public school and children’s hospital. Russian media and bloggers suspect the programs were meant to butter up locals for a possible US settlement there.

Until quite recently the US military has been allocating American taxpayers’ money to reconstruction of public offices on the Crimea Peninsula, while it was still autonomous within Ukraine.

FBI ‘intentionally and unlawfully’ used No Fly List to recruit Muslims as informers

One of the plaintiffs, Awais Sajjad, a lawful permanent US resident, learned that he was on a No Fly List in 2012 when he tried to board a flight to Pakistan. The FBI agents questioned Sajjad at the airport before releasing him. Soon they returned with an offer: he could work as an FBI informer and in return the agency would give him citizenship and compensation, the Washington Post reported.

Lavrov: Kiev issued ‘criminal order’ allowing use of weapons against civilians

The coup-appointed Kiev government’s order to use force against Ukrainian citizens is “criminal,” the Russian Foreign Minister told RT. He also denied claims that there is Russian military presence on Ukrainian territory.

In an interview with RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze, Sergey Lavrov called acting Ukrainian President Alexander Turchinov’s order to reinitiate an anti-terror operation in East Ukraine, a criminal act.

Judge Rules Water Not Allowed in School Because It’s a Weapon

The courts have gone crazy. Judges, who are not stupid people, are creating havoc with the law. This is the latest from a judge:

“Ordinary tools, such as pliers, screwdrivers and wrenches, are ‘weapons’ and so a Chicago school was correct to punish a teacher who brought them to class for a visual aid, according to a new court decision.

“The ruling from a federal court in Illinois technically dismissed a lawsuit brought on behalf of teacher Douglas Bartlett. He had been suspended without pay for four days ‘on the grounds that his use of the tools as visual aids endangered his students, despite the fact that all potentially hazardous items were kept out of the students’ reach.’”

The claim that tools are weapons is now part of the legal record that can be cited in future cases. Given this type of “logic,” everything is a weapon.

 

Dutch scramble jets after Russian bombers approach

The Dutch defense department says several NATO member countries scrambled jets Wednesday afternoon after a pair of Russian bomber planes approached their airspace over the North Sea.

The Dutch ministry identified the planes as two Russian TU-95 Bears, and said it had launched two F-16s from Volkel air force base to intercept them. The Russian jets were escorted by aircraft from the Netherlands, Britain and Denmark until they departed.

Maj. Wilko Ter Horst said “that’s why we scrambled, that’s why the Danish scrambled and the English scrambled, to ensure to insure they fly out of our air space.”

16 MORE MAJOR RETAILERS CLOSING THOUSANDS OF STORES

The economy appears to be in far worse shape than the major media outlets would have us believe. In fact, if you want to see how bad the economy really is, simply visit your local shopping center. There you will find that headlines about a retail tsunami – as CNBC put it — are accurate.

Unfortunately, it could be just the tip of the iceberg. Recent news stories show that American retail is in a desperate situation and the entire economy is on very shaky ground.

Here are 16 major companies that have closed stores or will close stores soon:

Blinded by scientific gobbledygook

I have just written the world’s worst science research paper: More than incompetent, it’s a mess of plagiarism and meaningless garble.

Now science publishers around the world are clamouring to publish it.

They will distribute it globally and pretend it is real research, for a fee.

It’s untrue? And parts are plagiarized? They’re fine with that.

Welcome to the world of science scams, a fast-growing business that sucks money out of research, undermines genuine scientific knowledge, and provides fake credentials for the desperate.

And even veteran scientists and universities are unaware of how deep the problem runs.

This is probably where they got all their “experts” on human-caused global warming!

Pre-Crime Systems Now Actively Monitoring the Internet: “The Computer Algorithm Learns the Pattern and Produces a Prediction”

The next generation of systems are being used to actively monitor your digital interactions, surfing habits, conversations and daily sentiment in an effort to predict your future behavior. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the systems currently operating within the social media sphere.

Researchers at the University of Virginia funded by the U.S. Army recently demonstrated that they can not only gather information from your personal Twitter account just like the NSA, but also aggregate and analyze that information with advanced predictive algorithms designed to determine what you’re going to do next. In this case, the researches focused specifically on predicting crime by individuals, as well as in crime “hot spots” around the country.

They claim the performance of the company’s special computers is “unmatched” and their firewalls are the “best-in-class.” Despite these assurances, though, there is one attacker none of these products can fend off — the United States’ National Security Agency.

BELLA CIAO GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ

Like many Latin American writers, Garcia Marquez transcended the world of letters. He became a hero to the Latin American left as an early ally of Cuba’s revolutionary leader Fidel Castro and a critic of Washington’s interventions from Vietnam to Chile. His affable visage, set off by a white mustache and bushy grey eyebrows, was instantly recognizable. Unable to receive a US visa for years due to his politics, he was nonetheless courted by presidents and kings. He counted Bill Clinton and Francois Mitterrand among his presidential friends.

China Is Quietly Profiting From the Russia-Ukraine Standoff: Here’s How

Enter the standoff between Russia and the WestThe escalating standoff between Russia and Ukraine is making both sides a little apprehensive. Russia is far and away the largest supplier of natural gas to Europe, and the pipelines that run through Ukraine are responsible for 34% of all imports. Europe wants to diversify its energy sources exactly because of events such as the ones in Urkaine. For Russia, it will be even harder to find a client as large as Europe. It is the destination for 65% of Russian natural gas exports, and any disruption of that flow could put a pretty big hole in the Russian budget. The most logical step for Russia is to send its gas East, and what better customer than China?

The first of May comes at the end of next week; expect this deal to move very quickly from negotiations to final agreements.

Four Points From Scalia’s Scathing Dissent in Supreme Court Ruling to Allow Searches Based on Anonymous Tips

“A freedom-destroying cocktail.”

That’s how Justice Antonin Scalia characterized Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling that law enforcement officers may pull over and search drivers based solely on an anonymous tip.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” — Fourth Amendment to the Constitution

Clearly, an anonymous tip is not “oath or affirmation” which requires the accuser to be present and identified. Scalia is correct in that this latest USSC decision has gone off the Constitutional map.

 

Canada’s coup-supporting corporate cowboy diplomacy

When U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry bloviated last fall about officially ending the Monroe Doctrine (the U.S. belief that God grants only Americans the right to interfere with the internal affairs of other western hemisphere countries), one wonders if Stephen Harper and his foreign affairs pitbull John Baird immediately took the concept on for themselves. Perhaps they also adopted a bit of manifest destiny thrown in for good measure. How else — other than through the lens of someone who truly feels anointed by the heavens — can one begin to understand Harper’s messianic foreign policy, one in which he and John Baird play tag-team John Waynes making the world safe for Canadian corporate profits?

I listened to O’Hara tell me point-blank eye to eye, that Peltier did it, that he was a murderer, and that the shell casings found were proof, etc.

I admit that when I left I didn’t know who was telling the truth.

It solves a problem that the politicians are dealing with: how to be able to say they’ve “done something” to “protect the children” while at the same time building up the tools and powers of the government to stifle any speech they don’t like. To those folks, the system is working perfectly.

The Anglo-Saxon Empire is based on a century of propaganda. It managed to convince us that the United States is “the land of the free” and that it engaged in wars to defend its ideals. But the current crisis over Ukraine has changed the rules of the game. Now Washington and its allies are not the only speakers. Their lies are openly challenged by the government and media of another major state, Russia. In the era of satellites and the Internet, Anglo-Saxon propaganda no longer works.

But he came close to plunging the United States into another war, and the episode provides warnings for the next foreign-policy brouhaha.

U.S. sends troops near Russia as Ukraine tensions build

Vice President Joe Biden, in a visit to Kiev, warned Russia to pull back its troops and abide by last week’s international agreement or face the certainty of swift new sanctions. Biden also urged Ukraine’s leaders to adhere to democratic principles and respect cultural differences, reassuring them, “You will not walk this road alone.”

Despite Washington’s efforts, tensions flared as Kiev accused pro-Russian separatists of torturing and killing two people and of shooting at one of its military planes, prompting a call by the country’s interim president for a resumption of what he termed counterterrorism actions to uproot militants.

The Kremlin didn’t comment on the developments but has complained that Western military moves only serve to raise tension in the region.

Agenda 21: The BLM Land Grabbing Endgame

Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as “Agenda 21?, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”. In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors.

That truth is, given Harry Reid’s history of abusing the power of his Senate seat – Reid is the one who is the terrorist.

Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab.

Syrian refugees set up home in Paris park

Around 150 Syria refugees are living a desperate existence in a small park to the north of Paris. NGOs and France’s Green party are urging authorities to do more to help the families while they wait for their asylum requests to be processed.

Amnesty Report Slams Qatar For Exploiting Migrant Workers

Amnesty International added to growing pressure on Qatar today by slamming the emirate for failing to protect foreign maids and other domestic workers from exploitation.

The human rights charity released a special report alleging that migrant workers face abuse including forced labour, excessively long working hours, verbal harassment and physical and sexual violence.

 

Kedem complex: The final piece of Israel’s complete control over Al-Aqsa mosques

Kedem complex was the final piece Israel needed to secure its complete control over the area around al-Haram al-Sharif. Now tourists will enter from Jaffa Gate , walk through the Jewish quarter, see the Western Wall, visit the City of David and get their information from the Kedem complex. The experience would reinforce both the idea of Israel’s physical control of the area and a hardline nationalist narrative associated with Israel’s far right. The sites and signs will look Israeli; all the information and tours will consolidate an exclusively Jewish narrative. Most Israeli and foreign tourists will have no idea that they are in Palestinian territory. It will feel to them like they are still in Israel. Continue reading –> http://sabbah.biz/mt/?p=21984

PLO and Hamas agree landmark pact

The two main rival Palestinian factions have signed an accord designed to end seven years of sometimes violent division, paving the way for elections later in the year and the formation of a unity government within weeks.

The move, after a day of talks between Hamas and Fatah in Gaza that lasted until three in the morning, comes less than a week before the expiry of the deadline for US-sponsored peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority on 29 April and is certain to complicate US efforts to seek another nine-month extension to those talks.

Israel immediately responded by saying the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, was moving to peace with Hamas instead of peace with Israel.

All is not lost for Palestinians, even if talks hit the buffers

With the Palestinian leaderships committed to hopeless strategies, a third way has begun to emerge. With Israel’s demand for “unconditional surrender” from the Palestinians, “the road to South Africa has been paved”. Continue reading –> http://sabbah.biz/mt/?p=21979

 

Gaza Terrorists Fire Rockets at Southern Israel

Gaza terrorists fired two missiles at Israeli civilians Wednesday evening. One missile struck Israeli territory, while the other seems to have landed short.

The usual; Israeli agents provocateurs fire some bottle rockets into the dirt of Israel, and Israel will now uncork a major military offensive against Gaza.

Turkey Sends 300 Troops into Syria

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed reports that Turkey has sent 300 troops into neighboring Syria to guard the tomb of a leading Turkish figure believed to be under threat from radical Islamist rebels, according to Today’s Zaman.

The Turkish military force, which also included several armored vehicles, is being sent to bolster a small existing unit at the tomb of Süleyman Shah, grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman Empire.

 

Israel Cancels Planned Talks with PA Following Hamas-Fatah Deal

Female IDF Drone Jockeys Kill Gazans Remotely

In 2008, the IDF created a new weapon (Hebrew) in its arsenal and trained a new group of fighters to use it. It was a remote-operated gun mounted on an IDF security tower along the Gaza border. The guns are operated by female IDF soldiers trained, like drone jockeys, to monitor the border area by video feed and shoot to kill pretty much anything that moves there.

US Drones Killed Scores, Now Yemen Scrambles to ID ‘Suspects’

Three days of US drone strikes and at least one ambush involving US ground troops in Bayda have left scores of people dead across Yemen’s south and east, in what Yemeni officials touted as an unprecedented offensive.

Yemen may be finding it oversold the bloodletting somewhat, however, as now they are faced with 70-plus bodies, who they have all officially labeled “suspects,” and none of them has actually been identified yet.

Jihadists Now Control Secretive U.S. Base In Libya

A key jihadist leader and longtime member of al Qaeda has taken control of a secretive training facility set up by U.S. special operations forces on the Libyan coastline to help hunt down Islamic militants, according to local media reports, Jihadist web forums, and U.S. officials.

In the summer of 2012, American Green Berets began refurbishing a Libyan military base 27 kilometers west of Tripoli in order to hone the skills of Libya’s first Western-trained special operations counter-terrorism fighters. Less than two years later, that training camp is now being used by groups with direct links to al Qaeda to foment chaos in post-Qaddafi Libya.

WOW, the West’s overthrow of Qaddafi has gone JUST BRILLIANTLY, right?!?!?

I suppose we are now supposed to congratulate the White House, the Pentagon, and State Department for what can only be rightly characterized as foreign policy by dart board, with not a clue to the long-term effects such an action may have had.

I am completely frustrated at the absolute absence of long-term critical thinking as manifested by the US government as of late, and doubt that this situation is going to get any better any time soon.

Any government seriously contemplating two simultaneous wars against Russia and China cannot possibly be thinking clearly, at all.

 

E.U. condemns Syria for scheduling June election amid ongoing conflict

The European Union joined international condemnation of Syria’s plan to hold a presidential election on June 3, saying Tuesday the vote would lack credibility while the country remains at war.

EU diplomatic chief Catherine Ashton “deeply regrets the official declaration by the Syrian authorities that presidential elections will be held in Syria on June 3?, her spokesman said in a statement.

Ashton reiterated the EU’s stance that “any elections in Syria should only take place within the framework of the Geneva communique of 2012?, a so-far-fruitless agreement on a transition to democracy as the basis for negotiations between the Syrian regime and the opposition fighting to overthrow it.

A memo to Lady Ashton: NOT having an election in Syria in June would leave Syria absolutely rudderless, which I guess would be the point in postponing them until Al-Assad steps down from power, as he is due to do in July of this year.

It is angering and frustrating to the West and the EU that it appears the rebels, even with newly attained equipment, cannot seem to get the upper hand on Al-Assad’s troops, and that the government appears to be retaining the upper hand. But please think, just for a moment: are THESE the kind of people you want to see governing Syria, who are holding child hostages at gunpoint?!?

But if proven legitimate – either as a genuine hostage situation or a horrifying propaganda exercise designed to undermine the rebels – the photo would mark a sickening new low in a bloody and brutal conflict that’s already claimed more than 150,000 lives.

US Militarism and Easter Day Disinformation on Iraq

As Easter was celebrated in the US and UK with, for believers, the message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of the country is again under siege, not this time by US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s militias armed with US delivered weapons.

In 2003, a month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same day as this year, April 20, as Iraqis of all denominations and none, died, were incarcerated, tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no heads, thrown on garbage piles.

Is Blair holding up release of report into Iraq War? His former Attorney General Lord Morris demands urgent answers

Tony Blair must not be allowed to delay the release of the Chilcot report into the Iraq War, a former Labour Attorney General warned today.

Lord Morris called for ‘urgent clarification’ on whether Mr Blair, ex-PM Gordon Brown or the Cabinet Office are to blame for the delay in publication.

The former law officer in Mr Blair’s first Cabinet urged David Cameron to make a ‘firm decision’ to release the report well ahead of next year’s General Election.

 

115 gunmen have their files settled in Quneitra

115 gunmen of the villages and towns of Jabata al-Khashab, Tranjeh, Mashara, Khan Arnabeh, al-Baath city and Nab’ia al-Sakher in the countryside had their files settled on Wednesday after they turned themselves in and gave up their weapons to authorities, a source in Quneitra province told SANA.

The source added that the gunmen were released after they pledged not to do any acts that could affect Syria’s security and stability.

Governor of Quneitra Maan Salah-Eddin told SANA that the governorate will spare no efforts to restore the misled citizens to the country’s bosom.

Hundreds of gunmen have been laying down their weapons and turning themselves in to authorities in areas across the country.

 

US hands Palestine a loaded deck

The Americans only want to maintain the charade of a “peace process” as it gives them an important political platform in the Middle East. US administrations class themselves as honest brokers in these talks, but its quite clear that the Americans have hardly been honest in their dealings with either party.

In fact, the US is not a third party at all, but was and remains in the Israeli camp. It used its political and financial leverage as a platform that allowed it to advance Israeli interests first, and their own interests second. Indyk is an example.

Israel: Our Worst Ally

According to the group’s website, it focuses on “citizen access to initiatives of one of the most harmful forces driving policy formulation in the U.S. political process”—namely the powerful and wide-ranging network of pro-Israel organizations dominating the U.S. political process, policy making apparatus and mass media.

5 Slapstick Failures by Modern Military Commanders

There are certain jobs in the world where you just assume that the people doing them are competent: It’s hard to imagine a drunken, pantsless brain surgeon or astronaut. Considering that it takes longer to become a military general than either of those things, you could be forgiven for believing that only the cream would rise to the top. But more often than you’d think, circumstances conspire to put the fate of the world into the hands of people you wouldn’t trust with a Risk board.

Japan, US to back ASEAN’s sea surveillance: Report

Japan and the United States will pledge to jointly help Southeast Asian nations boost their marine surveillance capabilities, a newspaper said Saturday, as tensions over territorial disputes in the region simmer.

US President Barak Obama will discuss the issue with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during his visit to Japan next week. A deal is expected to be included in the joint statement signed by both leaders and issued after the summit meeting, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported.

Under the planned accord, the two countries are expected to offer patrol vessels to members of the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN), the mass-circulation daily said, citing unnamed sources.

They will also agree to train ASEAN coastguards and help the countries develop an information-sharing system against pirates and suspicious ships in the region, the newspaper said.

IF in fact these reports are true, this agreement is all about attempting to contain China.

 

Furious Chinese Rioters Beat Corrupt Policemen To Death

WARNING: VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES.

It appears, based on these extremely graphic images, that the Chinese people has a different way of dealing with corrupt officials. As Shanghaiist reports, a riot involving around 1,000 people broke out last Saturday in Cangnan county of Wenzhou city, Zhejiang province, resulting in the hospitalization of five chengguan, China’s notoriously abusive and under-regulated urban enforcement officials. The alleged cause for the riots was the five’s brutally killing a civilian. According to reports, the chengguan “hit the man with a hammer until he started to vomit blood, because he was trying to take pictures of their violence towards a woman, a street vendor.” This man later died while being rushed to the hospital. Given the following images of civilian retribution; is it any wonder, the powers that be in China fear social unrest?

Human beings can only be pushed so far before they react.

That is something of which all world leadership needs to take note.

 

Obama aims to reassure Asia allies

Looking to turn a few degrees in his long-awaited “pivot to Asia,” President Barack Obama embarks on Tuesday on a four-country tour of the region in the hopes of convincing Pacific allies the United States remains focused on them.

But like Obama’s last attempts to renew diplomatic and economic attention on Asia, this trip comes amid distractions: unrest in Ukraine, recent transportation disasters at two of his stops, and wary lawmakers back home who aren’t on board with Obama’s plan to expand trade.

The trip itself — with stops in Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — is a rain-check from last October, when the White House nixed a visit to Asia at the last minute amid the government shutdown.

Obama’s tour to reinforce “pivot to Asia”

Amid the on-going confrontation with Russia over Ukraine, President Barack Obama arrives in Japan tomorrow on the first leg of a tour of Asia that will also take in South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. Obama’s overriding aim is to signal his intention to press ahead with the “pivot to Asia,” which seeks to ensure US hegemony throughout the region.

Last October, Obama cancelled his trip to Asia, including his attendance at two key Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) summits, citing the government shutdown in Washington. His decision to proceed with the current tour, despite the escalating Ukraine crisis, is intended to reassure American allies that the US remains committed to its diplomatic offensive and military build-up in Asia against China.

Pacific naval powers sign pact aimed at preventing conflicts

As US military action increases in the western Pacific, more than 20 countries became signatories to an agreement on Tuesday that establishes guidelines for communication, while hoping to halt military maneuvers in disputed areas.

More than 20 countries from the Western Pacific region unanimously signed up to the non-binding framework, including China, Japan, the Philippines and Malaysia. The signing ceremony occurred at a meeting of the Western Pacific Naval Symposium (WPNS) in the eastern Chinese coastal city of Qingdao.

The WPNS includes among its members the Australia, Chile, Canada and a number of Asian countries, including China, Japan and South Korea, as well as the United States.

 

BEX ALERT – Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Why are Americans obsessed with it?

From the disappearances of aviator Amelia Earhart to labor union leader Jimmy Hoffa, there’s just something about a good mystery that Americans find too tantalizing to resist. Perhaps that’s why the saga of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has continued to rivet the country long after people elsewhere have moved on.

This is the start of “Why don’t you all just forget about it” spin. “Nothing to see here, people, STOP LOOKING AT DIEGO GARCIA!”

The fruitless search for the missing Malaysian Airlines jet might have to start all over again from scratch if no clues to its fate are found in coming days, it was claimed today.

The international team searching the Indian Ocean for the Boeing 777 are now considering the seemingly impossible scenario of the aircraft having ‘landed’ somewhere, instead of crashing in the southern Indian Ocean.

 

 

The Farmers’ Resistance Movement on Iejima Island, Okinawa

The second U.S. invasion came a decade later. It is barely documented by American historians, but to those who were living on the island, it wrought almost as much distress. On March 11th, 1955, with Okinawa under United States administration, landing craft came ashore once again on the beaches of Iejima. Their mission: to expropriate two-thirds of the island in readiness for the construction of an air-to-surface bombing range. This time, the Army only brought three hundred soldiers, but they assumed these would be sufficient – their new enemies were the island’s unarmed peanut and tobacco farmers, and the only shelters they had were the houses they’d constructed in the years since the end of the war.

Oklahoma House Votes to Legalize Gold and Silver as Money

Activist Post

Late last week, a bill to legalize gold and silver as legal tender was passed through the Oklahoma state house. The vote was 74-12.

Senate Bill 862 (SB862), was introduced by Sen. Clark Jolley and Rep. Gary Banz, with cosponsorship from Sen. Natham Dahm. It reads, in part:

“Gold and silver coins issued by the United States government are legal tender in the State of Oklahoma. No person may compel another person to tender or accept gold or silver coins that are issued by the United States government, except as agreed upon by contract.”

The bill also provides a state-level tax exemption to Oklahoma residents exchanging their precious metals for another medium of exchange…

The Risks Are Massive: “Will Likely Lead to Famine and Civil Unrest”

With China’s debt now bursting at the seams and the economic outlook in the United States signaling a major recession the governments and central banks of the world are very rapidly running out of options.

So much so that well respected Swiss asset manager Egon von Greyerz of Matterhorn Asset Management warns that they will have no choice but to ramp up monetary printing at an accelerated pace in 2014. Failure to do so will likely seize up the global flow of credit and lead to a massive financial collapse as liquidity gets sucked out of the system.

To put this number in perspective, the number of US retail locations for McDonalds, Subway, and Starbucks COMBINED… are only 50,000!

 

Reuters Analysis: Printing Money Is More Important Than Ever for Yellen

This Reuters editorial presents the reality of Yellen’s upcoming Fed regime. Peter Schiff and others – including The Daily Bell – were correct.

There is not going to be any radical tightening at the Fed.

Supposedly, Yellen was going to cease quantitative easing. But QE is simply a strategy and whether or not it continues does not necessarily have an effect on the larger money-printing environment.

This article tells us what is probably the truth about the Fed regime: People misinterpreted Yellen’s initial remarks on the subject. Just because she is departing from Ben Bernanke’s goal-based employment doesn’t mean Yellen is departing from the idea of printing currency to create jobs.

Greek austerity has caused more than 500 male suicides – report

Spending cuts in Greece have caused some 500 male suicides since their implementation, according to a new study. The research found a positive correlation between austerity and suicide rates after other possible links proved to be unrelated.

The 30-page study, titled ‘The Impact of Fiscal Austerity on Suicide: On the Empirics of a Modern Greek Tragedy’ and published in the Social Science and Medicine journal was authored by Nikolaos Antonakakis and Alan Collins from Portsmouth University.

“Suicide rates in Greece (and other European countries) have been on a remarkable upward trend following the global recession of 2008 and the European sovereign debt crisis of 2009,” states the study’s abstract.

Pay booms for building societies’ chiefs as millions of savers are hit with more than 1,000 interest rate cuts

Building societies made more than 1,000 interest rate cuts to savings accounts last year – even though the Bank of England base rate remained at an all-time low of 0.5 per cent.

But the resulting financial pain suffered by millions of savers – with many depending on the interest to boost retirement income – was not shared by those who occupy the boardrooms of organisations that are supposed to belong to members.

Just under half of chief executives, 13, enjoyed double-digit percentage increases to their pay packages.

EARTH DAY CONFRONTS THE OCCUPATION

The Earth Day Network is rightfully following the path of Oxfam by disassociating itself from SodaStream, a company that produces its water carbonating devices in an illegal Israeli settlement in occupied Palestinian territory.

Egypt to ‘escalate’ Ethiopian dam dispute

In the three years since construction began on the 1.8km Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam across the Blue Nile River, Egypt and Ethiopia have been engaged in a war of words over its potential impacts.

Ethiopia believes the massive dam will herald an era of prosperity, spurring growth and attracting foreign currency with the export of power to neighbouring countries. But Egypt has raised concerns about the downstream effects, as the Blue Nile supplies the Nile with about 85 percent of its water.

Both sides say they seek a negotiated solution, but they remain at loggerheads, with negotiations stalled. Ethiopia insists the dispute must be resolved through negotiations between the two parties, with Mahamoud Dirir, the ambassador to Egypt, noting in a statement last month that “there are only two… countries in the entire world which are well-placed to mediate between Egypt and Ethiopia.”

Without good faith negotiations, and intelligent, technologically sane conservation of resources, this could well escalate into the 21st century’s first “water war”.

I would like to hope that cool heads will prevail, and that Egypt and Ethiopia can manage to come to an equitable resolution which will provide both clean water and power to both countries.

 

Pork ‘N Pigs

by Catherine J. Frompovich

Pigs, aka swine, have played a prominent part in many philosophies, including literature [This little piggy went to market…]; in religion [Kashrut/Kosher (Jewish) and Halal (Muslim) dietary laws]; in health-medicine-vaccines [the infamous Swine flu (2009), trichinosis (a disease from eating undercooked infected pork), and vaccines (the pig virus, porcine circovirus type 1 PCV-1, found in GSK’s rotavirus vaccine Rotarix® [1]); and the commodities markets, specifically pork bellies, that traded until July 15, 2011 [2].

However, something probably unexpected is affecting pigs, those four-legged creatures, whose meats are butchered into bacon, pork chops, pork loin roasts, hams, barbequed ribs, Canadian bacon, and ham hocks, plus cooked products like scrapple, wieners, and sausages. According to Wall St Daily, there’s been a mass die off of pigs in the USA, totaling close to 2.7 million animals!…

We also urged the company to issue a statement expressing its opposition to the occupation and Israel’s settlement enterprise, consistent with the principles of its social mission.

Our demands have not been met, but the campaign is strong and growing.

Ten Years After His Release From Prison, Israeli Nuclear Whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu Is Still Not Free

Ten years ago, on April 21, 2004, several hundred of us from around the world waited with great anticipation outside the gates of Israel’s Ashkelon Prison, holding up signs saying “Thank you, Mordechai Vanunu: Peace Hero, Nuclear Whistle-blower”. After many years of campaigning for his freedom, the day had finally arrived: Mordechai Vanunu would walk out of the prison where he had spent each day of his 18 year sentence (12 of those years in solitary confinement) for blowing the whistle on Israel’s then secret nuclear arsenal. We were there to welcome him to freedom.

Researchers: Ancient Rome’s tap water had 100 times the lead contamination of local spring

Supply became contaminated as it passed through giant network of lead pipes that distributed water around city, scientists believe

Tap water in ancient Rome, provided by its famous aqueducts, was contaminated with up to 100 times more lead than local spring water, researchers say.

Huge volumes of fresh water flowed along aqueducts to the heart of the Roman empire but the supply was contaminated as it passed through the giant network of lead pipes that distributed water around the city.

I have to wonder if this problem isn’t what has lead to the lousy quality of thinking and policies we’ve been getting from DC for so long!!

Ebola, l’Italia attiva le misure di “sicurezza” – Ebola, Italy active measures “security”

Google translate: In Italy it is Ebola alert . After other European countries such as France, which has alarmed doctors and hospitals for possible cases of EVD , even our country has decided to run for cover. In a circular issued on April 4 , the Ministry ” is recommended to take all appropriate supervisory action in relation to indirect arrivals ” from Guinea and other neighboring countries in Africa, if you are having symptoms related to the disease in place . They were alerted to the Defense Ministry , the Regions , the Civil Aviation Authority , the Red Cross and the National Institute for Infectious Diseases . For each of these , the department indicates what to do.

This Italian news article does not mention the rumored patients reported to be in isolation in a hospital in Piza, but it does say that Italy’s government has activated containment procedures against Ebola.

Food Chain CEOs Want Subsidies for Their Salaries, But Are Against Raising Workers’ Wages

You might say the chieftains of America’s largest restaurant corporations want it every which way and then some.

Having read the polls supporting a minimum wage hike, they’re skittish about trashing the idea personally. So they pay their DC lobby machine to do their dirty work. And it’s not enough for them to shove the costs of their low-wage model onto Joe Schmo taxpayer. These CEOs are also making the rest of us pay for their own fat paychecks.

 

Is ibuprofen making us sick? Research suggests it may cause gut conditions such as coeliac disease

When people have a headache, their first reaction is often to pop a couple of painkillers.

These drugs have become such a big part of everyday life that few people even consider whether there are likely to be any ill effects from their regular use.

In fact, ibuprofen is well known for irritating the gut and can cause stomach ulcers.

And now, research suggests ibuprofen could be linked to the development of coeliac disease.

 

Experimental GSK drug makes patients smell bad, fails to stop heart attacks

In a failed attempt to plagiarize what nature already freely provides in the form of anti-inflammatory plants and herbs such as cannabis and turmeric, U.K.-based drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is now reaping the bitter harvest of bio-piracy after one of its experimental heart drugs turned out to be both useless and harmful, causing patients to emit a constant vile odor while on the medication.

The results of a Phase III clinical trial recently published in The New England Journal of Medicine revealed darapladib, once believed to be the most promising emerging therapy in GSK’s drug pipeline, to be a complete failure therapeutically. Not only does the drug provide no actual benefits for heart patients, but it also puts them at risk of developing foul odors in their urine, feces and skin.

Technicians from Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center took samples on March 20 and March 28 from Brantley Lake and Red Bluff Lake, according to the release. Samples were collected from shallow and deep water areas.

Sediment samples from the reservoirs were also collected, however CEMRC is still analyzing the samples and will release the data reports some time in the future.

U.S. Warns That Russia Has ‘Days, Not Weeks’ To Comply With Ukraine Accord

Russia has “days, not weeks” to abide by an international accord aimed at stemming the crisis in Ukraine, the top U.S. diplomat in Kiev warned Monday as Vice President Joe Biden launched a high-profile show of support for the pro-Western Ukrainian government. Russia in turn accused authorities in Kiev of flagrantly violating the pact and declared their actions would not stand.

Biden, the highest-ranking American official to visit Ukraine during its conflict with Russia, planned to meet with government officials in the capital of Kiev on Tuesday. The vice president also planned to announce new technical support to help the fledgling government with energy and economic reforms.

The war-mongering US government has no concrete proof of Russian military involvement in Eastern Ukraine. It may have great Photoshop capabilities; but utterly zero concrete evidence.

The formerly legally elected President of Ukraine was booted out of office by a western-backed putsch. And the rest of Ukraine, particularly in the Eastern part of the country, are looking at this and thinking, do we really want this? Is not peaceful self-determination supposed to be a benchmark of international law?!?

Apparently, according to the US, not so much.

Folks, something wicked this way comes, and it would not surprise me to hear that the US government already has boots on the ground in the Ukraine.

Just because war with Russia would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do right now, with the domestic economy well and truly flushed, is unfortunately absolutely no guarantee that this government will not do this, and soon.

 

Peddler of Iraq War Lies Now Pushes Lies On Urkaine to Drum Up Confrontation with Russia

Intelligence regarding Syria is arguably being manipulated even more blatantly than intelligence on Saddam and Iraq.

Media coverage of Syria and Ukraine is as bad as it was of the Iraq war … or worse.

Indeed, it is largely the same knuckleheads in government and in media who are pushing the lies.

Former Associated Press and Newsweek reporter Robert Parry notes today that some of the core Iraq war lies, Syria lies and lies about Ukraine were all penned by New York Times reporter Michael Gordon:
There is now a pattern to New York Times “investigative” stories that seek to pin the blame on some nefarious foreign enemy, as in the 2002 article on Iraq buying aluminum tubes for nuclear centrifuges; the 2013 “vector analysis” tracing sarin-laden rockets to a Syrian military base; and now a photographic analysis proving that Russian soldiers are behind unrest in eastern Ukraine.

If ever there was a “Presstitute in Chief”, shilling for the US government’s lies with which to support a war agenda, it has to be this guy.

I would like to politely point out that at this time in its history, the US military doesn’t have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario here so scarily dangerous.

And a small memo to the Congress, the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon; having lied us into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (ultimately for private profit, I might add) you collectively have no credibility left – not one shred.

Should President Obama stop over on Oahu on the way to his Asian tour, knock on my door, an inform me that the sun was shining, I would feel morally obligated to get up, walk out the door, and validate for myself.

And the real problem with having lied so consistently to the American public, is that should there be a real emergency (say, the emergence of a serious infection of some kind here in the US), no one would believe a word you said about what to do to keep the public out of harm’s way.

 

Unionists rally as Scottish independence mood gains ground

Opponents of Scottish independence speak of pensions being lost in the potential separation from the UK. It comes after a recent poll showed that the gap between Yes and No votes is narrowing, with unionists losing ground.

The landmark ICM survey revealed Sunday a decline of the No vote from 46 per cent to 42 percent over the past month. At the same time the Yes vote remained steady at 39 percent. With the “don’t knows” excluded from the count, the No vote stands at 52 percent, just four percent ahead of the Yes vote.

It’s the highest level of support for Scotland’s independence since last August, and with only five months remaining till the September 18 referendum, the poll opened to criticism the campaigning of those wishing to keep the union in place.

 

AMATEUR HOUR IN UKRAINE

Here in Spain’s sunny south, you wouldn’t know that a new world war over Eastern Europe threatens. In fact, rumor has it that none other than Vlad Putin is house-shopping in this glamorous resort.

Easter is Europe’s most important holiday. While churches are empty, restaurants, clubs and boutiques are packed with visitors and residents. Northern Spain is racked by record unemployment and a deep recession, but armies of British, French and German tourists are back in the south and the mood is upbeat.

To Spaniards, the dangerous fracas over Ukraine seems remote and unimportant. Western Europeans are taking this nasty business calmly. There is none of the media hysteria and patriotic drum beating found in North America. No one that I’ve met thinks Ukraine is worth a war, even a small one.

Biden Tells Russia ‘Time is Short’ for Progress in Ukraine

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is calling for Russia to live up to its recent agreement to resolve the crisis in Ukraine, saying Ukraine is “in the struggle for its very future.”

During a joint appearance Tuesday with interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Kyiv, Biden said it is time for Russia “to stop talking and start acting” on commitments it made last week during international talks in Geneva to withdraw support for pro-Russian separatist forces who have taken over government buildings in eastern Ukraine.

“We’ve heard a lot from Russian officials in the past few days. But now it’s time for Russia to stop talking and start acting,” he told a news conference. “We will not allow this to become an open ended process. Time is short in which to make progress.”

Putin warns of US navy threat

On Thursday President Vladimir Putin described NATO missile batteries aimed at Russia’s Black Sea coastline as threatening the nuclear defences of southwestern Russia. It was the first time the president or Russian defence officials have put Crimea into Russian strategic survival doctrine.

US Navy deployment in the Black Sea of ships armed with Aegis missiles is one of the concrete threats Putin was referring to. This has made the current Black Sea cruise of the USS Donald Cook, an Aegis-armed destroyer, of special importance. It is the reason a Russian military aircraft buzzed the Cook as it steamed towards Constanta port, in Romania.

Ukraine peace deal falters as rebels show no sign of surrender

An international agreement to avert wider conflict in Ukraine was faltering on Monday, with pro-Moscow separatist gunmen showing no sign of surrendering government buildings they have seized.

Reuter’s is still blocking my comments, otherwise I would remind them that the independence movement in eastern Ukraine were not invited to Geneva, therefore could not be part of any agreement reached in the first place. If your neighbor to the left and your neighbor to the right have a meeting that you are not invited to and decide your house should be painted a different color, why are you obligated to go along with that? You were not part of that meeting, remember? The same applies here. The unelected Junta in Kiev, the EU, the US, and Russia had a meeting, and the US media is trying to sell you the idea that the Eastern Ukrainians, who want nothing to do with the unelected government in Kiev, are wrong for not doing as they are told.

Slander and Lies: The Increasing Desperation of Democrats

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.”

It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.”

Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by racism. She was followed by Representative Steve Israel, the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, who said, “To a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements animated by racism.”

Why The Other Ranchers Support Cliven Bundy – statement from Kena Lytle Gloeckner, Nevada rancher

In the early 90s, the BLM went on a frenzy and drastically cut almost every rancher’s permit because of this desert tortoise issue, even though all of us ranchers knew that cow and desert tortoise had co-existed for a hundred+ years.

As an example, a family friend had his permit cut by 90%. For those of you who are non ranchers, that would be equated to getting your paycheck cut 90%.

In 1976 there were approximately 52 ranching permittees in this area of Nevada.

Presently, there are 3. Most of these people lost their livelihoods because of the actions of the BLM.

per’s Intel ‘Gag Order’ an Assault on Press Freedoms: Critics

New order designed to “chill news gathering process” not protect national security.

Clapper’s directive is agnostic about the classification status of information his spies, analysts and technical specialists might communicate with the media.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has signed an order designed to further wall off the public’s access to the work being done at the nation’s various intelligence services by banning all “unauthorized” contact between agency officials and journalists and making violations of the new orders punishable by termination or even prosecution.

As the Guardian’s Spencer Ackerman reports:

Months after the Edward Snowden surveillance disclosures presented US intelligence with a more skeptical media landscape, the intelligence community’s leader has instituted a new media policy: substantive contact with journalists without prior approval can be a firing offense.

Clapper should be sacked, and this agency disbanded, immediately.

Unfortunately, however, with the collectively paranoid, wanting to control everything administration in power right now, that will only happen when pigs fly.

Keep in mind that we only represent one group of the Counterforce and are speaking only for ourselves.

Do We Need a Thieving, Warmongering Ruling Class?

Murray Rothbard called his political philosophy anarcho-capitalism to differentiate it from the far more common “communist anarchism.” Or, rather, it was more common then.

Today, Murray’s vision of the free society without the oppressive, bloodthirsty, predatory State, and buttressed by private property, laissez-faire, and non-aggression, has relegated the bad guy anarchists to a particularly dusty corner of the history of thought.

The Elite, the ‘Great Game’ and World War III

The control of the US, and of global politics, by the wealthiest families of the planet is exercised in a powerful, profound and clandestine manner. This control began in Europe and has a continuity that can be traced back to the time when the bankers discovered it was more profitable to give loans to governments than to needy individuals.

These banking families and their subservient beneficiaries have come to own most major businesses over the two centuries during which they have secretly and increasingly organised themselves as controllers of governments worldwide and as arbiters of war and peace.

Unless we understand this we will be unable to understand the real reasons for the two world wars and the impending Third World War, a war that is almost certain to begin as a consequence of the US attempt to seize and control Central Asia. The only way out is for the US to back off – something the people of the US and the world want, but the elite does not.

Reid: ‘We Are a Nation of Laws, Not of Men and Women’

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says “something will happen” to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees.

“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this,” Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada’s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?”

“You can’t have a law that is — we’re a nation of laws, not of men and women,” he said.

To recap…

The Bundy Family purchased all of that land in 1877, only to have it seized by the government in the 1930s. This violated Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, which limits the Federal Government to owning land ONLY for Federal Buildings and military installations, NOT seizing millions of acres of private and public lands to be sold to corporations or pledged as collateral on out-of-control government borrowing.

Then there is the Homestead law, which says ownership of the land belongs to those who have lived on the land and developed it, which the Bundys have done in an unbroken chain since 1887.

The BLM does not have legal jurisdiction as the land in question is actually under state control.

The reason behind the land grab is complex. The US Government wants to sell fracking leases on that land but without sharing the lease payments with the lands’ rightful owners. One of Harry Reid’s major (illegal) donors is named Harry Whittemore, who has plans to commercially develop that land once the BLM transfers that land from public property to his private use. Harry Reid’s son, Rory, represents a Chinese energy firm that plans to put up a solar power plant in the area. They already acquired $38 million worth of public land for a mere $4.5 million.

The rest of the land, and Obama is about to grab another 10 million acres through Execute Order, is being used to collateralize more government borrowing. This has been the norm since Nixon ended gold convertibility in 1970, and the world realized that the US did not have enough cold to cover all the loans. So Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency which had little to do with the environment and everything to do with grabbing huge tracts of public (and sometimes private) land and locking it away from the American people to pledge (along with the mineral rights) as collateral for more government borrowing. Almost 1/3 of US public lands, technically the property of We The People, are now locked away and pledged as collateral on US Government debt.

The incident at the Bundy Ranch has brought the issue of government land-grabbing into the spotlight, but the problem is ongoing and widespread, with hundreds of ranchers and farmers being forced from their land over the last several years, often with no compensation for their stolen property.

Perception Deception With David Icke (Video)

Alex is joined live from the UK by David Icke about the emerging trend of Transhumanism. The globalists are selling robotic and mechanical implants to the general public as a good thing. But as Icke points out during this interview, these technologies can and will be used to limit human liberty and provide a tiny elite with unforeseen power and control.

Man calls to report a burglary, deputy arrives and shoots his dog in the head

A man says that when he called police to report that his home had been burglarized, he waited hours for an officer to arrive — only to witness his dog promptly being shot in the head by the responding deputy. He says when backup arrived, they mocked and intimidated him with a taser.

Apparently, Texas police now interpret the phrase “to protect and serve” as “to maim and kill with impunity.”

One can no longer call law enforcement in Texas with a legitimate complaint, or one risks the exact same fate as did this man’s dog.

US intel employees face new consequences for speaking to media

Members of the United States intelligence community must now operate within the boundaries of a new media policy, as contact with a journalist without prior approval can now be considered a fireable offense, their boss said on Sunday.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper signed on Sunday a directive which outlines new restrictions that intelligence analysts must consider before speaking to the press about both classified and unclassified information.

“No substantive information should be provided to the media regarding covered matters in the case of unplanned or unintentional contacts,” the directive states, defining “covered matters” as “intelligence-related information, including intelligence sources, methods, activities, and judgments.”

 

Is Analog The Answer To Cyber Terrorism?

Ralph Langner is one of the foremost experts on the security of critical infrastructure that we have. So, generally, when Ralph says something – whether its about Stuxnet, or cyberwar or the security of nuclear power plants – folks listen.

And these days, Ralph is wondering, out loud, whether our reliance on digital systems to manage critical infrastructure has gone too far. The answer, he suggests, may be to go “back to the future,” as it were: reintroducing analog systems into the control process chain as a backstop for cyber attacks.

The truth of the matter is that much of the computerization in our society is gratuitous and unnecessary, added as a marketing gimmick (or to open back doors for government spying). And much of the whiz-bang is really pointless. Most of us have probably bought the latest gadget, played with all the features for a week, then never used them again. Digital was supposed to provide clear communications, but as more and more compression is used to maximize profit on communications lines, sound and video quality have deteriorated back to what was possible with high-end analog systems. Industries like automobile companies love digital systems because they can allow for sloppy engineering, fixed after the point of sale with a “patch” (usually).

Don’t get me wrong. I think computers are great and have spent most of my life with them, in my film and TV work and now with WRH and the radio show. But they have their place, and I don’t want them everywhere in my life. I long ago abandoned the computerized coffee makers (as they usually failed just outside the warranty) and have gone back to old fashioned kettle and French Press for my morning brew. I don’t intend to have the “Internet of things” in my home.

There is an old joke called the Law of the Hammer, which goes “If you give a small child a hammer, everything he encounters needs pounding.” We have gone down the same path. With an abundance of cheap computer chips, suddenly everything we encounter needs a processor inside. I agree with Ralph Langner. Not everything needs to be pounded on or computerized. Analog systems are automatically immune from remote tampering. I say this in the context of Fukushima, whose disaster may have been magnified by the presence of STUXNET, a cyber-weapon deployed against Iran’s nuclear power station that broke into the wild and was in computer surrounding the Fukushima power plant when the quake and tsunami hit, which means we cannot rule out that STUXNET had infected the Siemens controllers running the Fukushima safety systems that failed when they were needed.

Oklahoma militia members join fight against feds

A land dispute in Nevada between rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government began decades ago.

The Bureau of Land Management says Bundy was allowing his cattle to graze illegally which triggered a round-up of about 400 head of cattle last week.

Bundy claims his family’s cattle have grazed on the land since 1870 without interference from the government.

However, the Bureau of Land Management says Bundy hadn’t paid his grazing fees since 1993.

Over time, officials say those fees have amounted to more than $1 million.

As authorities herded the cattle, a standoff was sparked with members of the militia.

Organizers with the Oklahoma Militia say they have members in Nevada who claim Bundy’s cattle were unlawfully herded by the bureau.

The Oklahoma Militia says it is made up of nearly 50,000 volunteers.

Members say they are taking Bundy’s side and fear this practice could spread to the Sooner State.

To recap…

The Bundy Family purchased all of that land in 1877, only to have it seized by the government in the 1930s.

The U.S. government has put full time military on our streets, we have not recognized it for what it is.

The U.S. government has been working on completely militarizing our Police over the last few years.

People simply have to look around to see that our police are completely militarized. Look at the BLM agents that were in Nevada. If you didn’t know where and what they were doing and you just saw the pictures, you would have thought they were military personnel over in Iraq or somewhere.

Gallatin Tennessee got a Maxxpro Armored vehicle (info about Maxxpro vehicles). Not just the DHS vehicle style but the even more serious Marine style armored vehicle!

Iowa got a total of 7 MRAP vehicles for their police.

The U.S. has put military on our streets full time through the police, we simply haven’t fully recognized it for what it is.

 

America has Become a Police State

In the far past, I used to look skeptically at those who believed and maintained that the United States is moving in the direction of becoming a rogue, police state. After all, nearly every single American media outlet propagates this belief that the United States is a “beacon of freedom”, and many people around the globe tend to accept it. Moreover, every year, thousands of people from different parts of the world immigrate to the States in search of a better and more prosperous life, having believed in the hidden power of this beacon of freedom in revolutionizing their lives. But now, I’ve come to the understanding that this is not the whole story, and even those who wishfully move to America to realize their dreams, find after a while that their hopes were in vain.

Easter egg: DSL router patch merely hides backdoor instead of closing it

First, DSL router owners got an unwelcome Christmas present. Now, the same gift is back as an Easter egg. The same security researcher who originally discovered a backdoor in 24 models of wireless DSL routers has found that a patch intended to fix that problem doesn’t actually get rid of the backdoor—it just conceals it. And the nature of the “fix” suggests that the backdoor, which is part of the firmware for wireless DSL routers based on technology from the Taiwanese manufacturer Sercomm, was an intentional feature to begin with.

And that it was because of money.

Battle lines hardening in Nevada cattle rancher standoff with feds

The battle lines are hardening in Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s so-called range war against the federal government over his right to graze cattle on public lands.

Arguments have moved from the Nevada desert to the nation’s capital, where Nevada’s two U.S. senators, Republican Dean Heller and Democrat Harry Reid, recently faced off on a television public affairs show in Las Vegas.

Heller described Bundy’s cadre of armed supporters as “patriots” during the show, “What’s the Point,” on KSNV-TV News 3. Reid repeated his claim that the so-called militia men are “domestic terrorists.”

Hawaiian Islands & Predictions About Their Future

A look at the geologic puzzle of how the isolated Hawaiian Islands chain was formed and predictions about their future.

The Hawaiian Islands (Hawaiian: Mokupuni o Hawai’i) are an archipelago of eight major islands, several atolls, numerous smaller islets, and undersea seamounts in the North Pacific Ocean, extending some 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometres) from the island of Hawai?i in the south to northernmost Kure Atoll. Once known as the “Sandwich Islands”, the name chosen by James Cook in honour of the then First Lord of the Admiralty John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, the archipelago now takes its name from the largest island in the cluster.

A Key Test for International Law (forced deportation of Diego Garcia islanders by Britain)

In truth, if colonial conquest and force majeure are legitimate grounds of sovereignty, and if extermination of a population can wipe out the legal right to self-determination, then in international law Britain has the right to Diego Garcia and to give it as tribute to their US overlords. But if international law has any relationship of any kind to principles of justice, then Britain should not be permitted to reap the dubious benefit of genocide. What international law actually is in the neo-conservative era is the real question before the UN tribunal now looking at the Diego Garcia question.

The UK is represented by Sir Michael Wood. He is the man who overruled my objection inside the FCO to the use of “intelligence” gained from torture, and argued that British cooperation with extraordinary rendition was legal.

If anybody in Scotland can read through this and read through the links, and does not want to take the chance to leave the stinking cesspit of international shame that is the United Kingdom, they are severely deficient in moral sense.

Crimes against Peace”: Historic Class Action Law Suit against George W. Bush

We now know that the Bush Administration began a concerted effort to scare and mislead the American public in order to obtain support for the Iraq War. As alleged in the complaint, this included the famous phrase that “the smoking gun could not be a mushroom cloud,” which was used repeatedly by Administration officials on news shows as a way of equating non-action with the vaporization of a United States city. The Administration used bogus and false intelligence to make the case for weapons of mass destruction, and also falsely linked al Qaeda to Iraq, despite the fact that there has never been any evidence of any operational linkages between the two. These were not simple mistakes: this was an intentional campaign by Administration officials to use faulty data to garner support for a war.

The crime of aggression was completed when these officials failed to secure proper authorization for the war. So concerned with their invasion, the Administration dismissed any need for a formal Security Council mandate. Today, Kofi Annan, an official Dutch inquiry, the Costa Rican Supreme Court, a former law lord from the House of Lords (Lord Steyn) and a former chief prosecutor from the Nuremberg Trials (Benjamin Ferencz) have all concluded the Iraq War was illegal under international law.

Important Revelations From New Leaks of CIA Torture Report

And when I say filled with, that report was finished in 2012. Dianne Feinstein, who’s head of that committee, the senator, has kept it classified. Recently there’s been a push to get at least parts of that report declassified. We know, you know, some of the rough outlines. We know [snip] black sites, which are places where detainees were interrogated in Poland, perhaps in some other places. We knew that people were waterboarded, because some of that was disclosed. But we don’t really know the whole story, and we still don’t, and we may not for a very long time.
